UO Opinion Poll Forecasts
Large Summer Enrollment
Results of a scientific poll of campus opinion show that more
students will be attending the University during the 1946 sum
mer session than ever before, Warren Price, associate professor
of journalism, reported Thursday. Mr. Price is conducting the
poll as a part of his class in public opinion.
Twenty-one per cent of the students polled intend to return
to tne university during the sum

estimated enrollment of 777. This
figure, however, is obtained on the
basis of students now present in
the University and during normal
times only half of the summer en

229 polled 48 answered “yes’’ and
181 answered “no.’’ Of those an

from 71 men and 110 women.
Estimate Low

be low,” Mr. Price said, “because
the present ratio of special and
graduate students at Oregon is low.
Returns show that they make up
the bulk of the summer session
enrollment.” Only 14 of the 229
polled were special and graduate
