Panicing student organ-
izations confronted the Di -
vision of Student Affairs
Tuesday as they were try
ing to comply to the re
quirements for good stand
ing as outlined by the Stu
dent Council.
The biggest problem
seemed to come from the
fact that the organizations
did not know if they were
complying with require
ment number 1: "To be in
good standing the organiza
tion must have an approved
copy of their constitution
on file at the Division of
Student Affairs."
"If we have a copy of
their constitutions, the Stu
dent Council does too,"
Mrs. Ermal Collister, sec
retary to Dean Frank Hall

'Operation Bootstrap9
Cutback of Fmids
Reduces Enrollment
By Nancy Whit ford
"Operation Bootstrap" and
cutbacks in military funds for
education have contributed to
a decrease of nearly 200 stu
dents in evening courses at
the University.
These figures, released by
acting supervisor of evening
courses. Edor Ellingson, in-1
elude 573 full-time campus
students, and 695 students -st-
large enrolled in the program.
"Some K3 campus students
and 825 students-at large
were enrolled last semester,
for a total then of 1,457 as
compared to 1,288 this year,"
Ellingson said.
Ellingson attributed the de
crease in student-at-large en
rollment to the military pro
gram of "Operation Boot
strap" which permits service
personnel to earn credit for
a degree in general eduea
tion in connection with their I
military service.

"I don't know what has
happened. I'm sure it isn't
the Student Council's fault.
We just got our wires
crossed and we aren't hit

An example was a rep
resentative of a student or
ganization who -was sure
that her organization was
in bad standing but the files
at Student Affairs did not
bear this out. She was hav

"However, the enrollment
of campus students in eve
ning courses fluctuates for no
apparent reason from year to
year," he said.
The selection of courses to
be offered in the evening de
pends mainly on student in

Ellingson observed that the
chief differences were in
method of faculty payment
and time of day.
