NO ROOM INSIDE With Ag college enrollment up, two
freshman students bask in the sun on the steps of the
Plant Industry building. An increase of 80 this Fall brings
Ag campus undergraduate enrollment to a new high
of 1,136.
Hit 1,136; Ml Time High
The enrollment of the Col
lege of Agriculture has hit a
new high, 1,136, an increase
of 80 undergraduate students.
The total is expected to in
crease further as the deadline
for late registrations is not
until Oct 4.
According to Dr. Franklin
Eldridge, Director of Resi
dent Instruction for Ag col
lege, this is an 8.1 percent
increase over last year, when
Ag college had a total under
graduate enrollment of 1,056.
Last year's graduate stu
dent enrollment on Ag cam
pus totaled 183, and with 11
days before the graduate stn
deit registration deadline.
Dr. Eldridge estimates at
least 200 students will be
working for advanced degrees
this year.
Considering both graduate
and undergraduate enroll
ments, this makes a total Ag
enrollment of L336, Dr.' Eld
ridge said, compared with a

According to Dr. Floyd
Hoover, University registrar,
the Ag enrollment situation is
in contrast to Ag enrollments
nationally, which show de
clines in most areas.
Dr. Hoover said the vigor
ous information program of
the Ag College was responsi

ment, in that students who
are attracted to agricultural

and business might enter
some other field.
University's NDEA Loans
Total One Million Dollars
The University has now
loaned more than a million
dollars to students under the
National Defense Education
Loan Act since March, 1959.
Eldon Teton, University di
rector of student scholarships
and financial aids, said the
total passed the million mark
with the issuance of $141,567.50
in NDEA loans to 539 students
for first-semester use this

through ether University

through the United Student
Aid Fund, Inc., $29,000; the
University Foundation and
University programs, $39,
062.99; and loan programs of
University colleges, $15,000.
Since the inauguration
NDEA program four years
ago, 1,984 University students
have borrowed $1,014,227.59
from it, Teton said. The de
linquency on repayment is
running less than one percent.
Funds for the NDEA loans
are provided by a one-tenth
contribution from University
student aid funds and nine
tenths from the U.S. Office
of Education.
Because of nationwide de

said, the University's share of
capital funds from the U.S.
Office of Education dropped
from $250,000 to $232,882 for
tbe current school year.

KK Adds
For Show
As a new incentive, Kosmet
Klub has announced that it
will give $100 to every house
appearing in the fall show.
In addition to the usual cash
prizes, every fraternity select
ed to compete in the 52nd
annual Kosmet Klub Fall
Revue will be provided with
the initial $100 in order to
finance costumes, settings and
other expenses incurred by
their skit.
Tom Knoll, publicity com
mittee member, said that the
cash bonus should increase
the number of houses partic
ipating in tryouts. He re
marked that in the past, many
houses have been reluctant to
try out for the show because
of the financial burden creat
ed by the skit production.
Knoll added that the $100
incentive should improve the
quality of tie show by adding
a little more color.
The theme for this year's
KK show, November 23, will
be "Komic Kapers." Knoll
commented that this theme
provides a wider topic range
than themes of previous
years in that "almost any

Chatfield Advises
Prompt Decision
On Class Drops
Prompt decision by students
on whether to drop or con
tinue a course can help relieve
pressure on some closed
class sections, Lee Chatfield,
director of the Junior Divison,
said Thursday.
"I am not urging a student
to drop a course just to make
room for somebody else,"
Chatfield said, "but if the
student is going to drop, I
wish he would do it promptly,
no later than the end of the
second week of school."
He explained that the new
drop rule permits students to
drop a course without penalty
if they act before the end of
the fourth week. The fourth
week, however, is too late
to permit reassignment of
vacated class space to some
body else.
"We have a number of in
stances," Chatfield said, "in
which students are waiting
for vacancies in class sec
tions so they can register
for a particular course they
want to take.
"The point is, if you are
going to drop a course, do it
now," he said. "Don't wait
until the last minute. If you
wait you may be depriving
a fellow student of getting a
course be wants this semester."
