Lies in Lowering
Enrollment trends at the Uni
versity indicate a marked drop in
student population next fall, ac
cording to Associate Registrar C.
Constance predicted that Ore
gon ‘‘might have as much as 10
per cent decrease in total enroll
ment next year.”
The associate registrar’s esti
mate is in contrast to an earlier
report issued by the Pacific Coast
Committee of the American Coun
cil on Education which indicated
probable new record enrollments
for Pacific Coast colleges in 1948
Curtis E. Avery, University reg

but did not indicate the percentage
of these prospective students who
would actually enter schools.
“During 1946-47 we may have
reached the crest of the post-war

'The Man' Proves Riotous Comedy
President Harry K. Newburn will
recommend a $5 raise a term on
the University’s tuition fees at a
meeting of the state board of high
er education in Portland Monday
The proposed raise would be lev
ied for ten terms and the extra
funds would go into the building
fund for Oregon’s much talked-of
Student Union building.
The president’s recommendation
will be made as a result of the ex

favor of the move in a recent opin

The proposal will go to the fi
