Jr. Panhel
Panel Emphasizes
Scholarship Goals
Sorority pledges asked for
stricter scholastic programs
and better explanations of
what is expected of them in
an evaluation of pledge pro
grams at Monday's Panhell-
enic meeting.
The evaluation was a part
of the Junior Panhelletiic pro
gram. Questionnaires were
sent to all pledge classes, and
the report was compiled and
given by three pledges. Vicki
Dowiing, Lynn Baumann and
Pat Teel.
"The feeling of most pledge
classes on scholarship was
that the requirements were
set about right or too low,"
said Miss Baumann. "They
preferred proctored study
halls and all felt that week
end study halls were needed."
The girls indicated that sev
eral choices of times for study
hall on weekends should be
offered, but that a certain
number of hours should be
required, she continued.
"The pledges would like to
have a gripe session at the
beginning of the year during
which they could air their
grips, and actives would then
indicate what they expect
from them," said Miss Bau
mann. Conferences with the
pledges, pledge trainers and
several other actives would
also give the pledges some
idea of what is expected of
them, she noted.
The pledges expressed con
cern at the current custom
of pairing off at functions.
"They feel it defeats the pur
pose of the function, which
is to meet new people," she
said. "They felt that if we
could just explain to the fra
ternity in advance that we
don't wish to pair off, the
whole function would be bet
ter." Individuality should be
emphasized where participa
tion in activities is concerned,
said Miss Teel. The activities
chairman should be carefully
backgrounded in the function
and operation of campus ac
tivities so pledges will know
beforehand what they are
joining, she told the group.
The pledges rebelled at reg
ulation of hours when they
could go into the Student Un
ion. "If a pledge doesn't feel
like studying, she won't and
perhaps later she will study
harder if she can take a
break," said Miss Baumann.
"Then if a pledge takes ex
cessive advantage of the priv
ilege, action could be taken
against her."

censorship of the editor and

Referring to his discussions
with the former editor, Scholz
states, "He apparently has
not come to recognize the na

RAM Council expressed in the
last censorship of him, so it
seemed best he be relieved of
his position."
Scholz also pointed out five
specific examples to justify
his action. The first con

The report says of the sec

High Enrollment
Surpasses Record
A record high second-semester registration has been re

This semester's enrollment, 9,981 students, is only two
per cent off that predicted by Hoover last Feb. 6, and is
894 more than registered at this time last year.
The previous high was in 1947 when 9,951 students en
rolled at second semester.
Despite mid-year graduation, total enrollment of four
colleges increased over the first semester count, which was
a record 10,401 students.
The colleges that increased enrollment are: Business
Administration, up 2 over last semester; Pharmacy, up 32;
Teachers, up 34; and Graduate, up 9.

Debaters Capture
Winner's Trophy
The University debate team
of Bud Kimball and Bill
Harding won a first place ,
trophy at the Wisconsin State
College debate tournament
last week.
The two are coached by Dr.
John Petelle of the Speech
Department. They were un
defeated in five rounds.
Another junior division de
bate team in the tournament
George Duranske and Bob
Cherny, had a record of three
wins and two losses. Susie
Segrist and Bill Wood won
one match and lost four.
The only senior division
team, Tom Chandler and
Mike Sulwell, won two and
lost three.
Kimball took second in the
discussion and Harding was
a finalist in after dinner

by 1965. If things continue
at the present rate the en
rollment in 1965 could ex
ceed 14,000. '
The University physical
plant is bigger now than it
was two years ago with
more area to be heated,
lighted, cooled and cared
for. Costs of providing these
services have also in
creased. Deferment of mainte
nance results in an added
cost, not a saving.
It will cost a total of al
most one million dollars
more to operate the total
physical piaai i the Uni
versity during the next two
years than it cost during
the past two. This accounts
for about ten per cent of
the increase requested.
