Work Scholarship
Program Increased
More jobs, both on and
off campus, have provided
an increase in the number
of freshman "work-scholarships",
according to Dr.
Aubrey L. Forrest, director
of Scholarships and Finan
cial Aids.
The program, designed
for scholastieally outstand
ing Nebraska high school
graduates who enroll at the
University of Nebraska, will
be increased this school
year to 200 awards Or dou
ble the number awarded
last year.
The program has been a
complete success both from
the standpoint of the stu
dents and the employes, ac
cording to Dr. Forrest.
The new feature of the
program this year is the
employment not only within
the University organization
but also off-campus jobs.
Included under the new
program are Gold's depart
ment store, Miller and
Paine, Montgomery Ward,
Wadlow's Mortuary, Law
lor's and the Journal-Star
Printing Company.
Dr. Forrest said that 500
applications were received
for the 200 positions avail
able. "This means that the
University must attempt to
find more positions through
out the University and the
city to aid these worthy
Nine to 20 hours a week is
the average employment
time for recipients of a
"work-scholarship". They
are able to earn enough to
cover one-half to all of their
room and board costs for
the year.

Both students and staff

cards," said Dr. Floyd Hoov
er, registrar, Friday in the
midst of first semester regis
tration at the PE Building.
Dr. Hoover said that al
though no definite figures
would be available until the
middle of this week he expect
ed this year's total enrollment
to exceed last years.
He added that most of the
2,400 incoming freshmen had
pre registered earlier this
year. This number compares
to the 1,725 total freshmen
students enrolled last year.

new students pull their cards

Sales Lag
Parking problems are aris
ing on the NU campus as the
campus police begin issuing
parking stickers.
Up to today 1,398 stickers
have been issued to faculty,
students and employees. Last
year approximately 7,009
stickers were issued.
The campus police began
issuing stickers today at 8:00
a.m. With this year's increase
in registration expectations
are for an increase in stick
ers. NU officials report that a
total of 3,779 parking spaces
are available for student ve
hicles this semester, includ
ing the newly hard surfaced
lot across from the Student
Union and a new lot being
readied between 16th and 17th
on Vine St. which will accom
modate 74 cars.
This figure includes 878 of

in advance was seen by the
shorter time spent register
ing. This was the first year
that freshman could pull their
cards in advance.
Section Shortage
Dr. Hoover ' said the only
problems arising in registra
tion were the shortage of sec
tions in English, zoology, bot
any and biology courses.
In connection with this,
Prof. James Miller, chairman
of the English department,
noted the most trouble was
for those students m ho had
not pulled their cards and
were scheduled to take Eng
lish B.
Dr. Miller said thaUthirty
or forty freshmen had already
been turned down for English
B and must wait until next
semester or next year to take
He pointed out that a good
factor of this year's new sys
tem was that, "All of the Eng
lish cards are taken care of
by one man. This makes the
process very good."
Advisors Praise
Looking at the new process
from the advisor's viewpoint,
James Morrison, assistant
professor of journalism, said,
in comparison with last year's
process, "It is better for the
advisors; there is no waiting
and registration is way
Morrison also noted that
with the new system fewer
changes have been made from
the pre-registration work
Student comment on the
new system was varied be
tween ease and confusion. The
following freshmen were in
terviewed on the difficulties in
Dan Coffey from Standard,
enrolled in Teachers College
and majoring in physical edu
cation ,said, "It's okay, but
I'm not too crazy about it. It
took me two hours to regis
ter." "Just fine and just what I
ordered," was the comment
from Betty King of Lincoln,
who is in Business Adminis
tration. Mickey Drew of San Mar
cos, Tex., enrolled in Teach
ers College stated, "It's con
fusing. Too many places at
one time and a lot different
than high school."
The final comment came
from Orville Shiglcy of Ne
braska City. Shigley, a Biz
Ad student, said "I lost my
worksheets, but the rest was
easy and I had no trouble."
