Officials Predict*
Enrollment Gain
Application Trend
Indicates Probable
4000 Registration
The upward trend in enrollment
at the University of Oregon from
all indications will continue next
year with estimates of the in
crease ranging all the way from
five to 15 per cent over last year’s
total, it was learned this week.
Actual applications for enroll
ment early this week were still
showing a 14 per cent increase
over the same time last year,
leading some to use that basis for
predictions. Should this continue
and the number of old students
returning remain the same, the
total number enrolled in the Uni
versity will be close to 4000—the
highest in the history of the in
stitution. »
Registration officials, however,
were inclined to regard the ap
plications figure as “unusual”
and predicted around an 8 per
cent increase. They based their
estimate upon the trend of past
years at the University.
Evidence of an upward surge
were also noticeable in the em
ployment office, where Miss Janet
Smith, employment secretary, re
ported that an unusual number of
students have written concerning
jobs for the school year.
These requests are being filled,
she said, by an expansion of the
employment and the cooperation
of business men and townspeople
of Eugene.
