Choral UnionPlans'M essiah'Con cert
A presentation of Handel’s ora
torio, “The Messiah,” is planned
this year by the University Choral
Union, according to Dr. Theodore
Kratt, dean of the school of music.
This will be the first year in seven
that the school of music has been
able to give a mass voice presenta
Dean Kratt said he expected
about 450 voices in the concert and
it would be given sometime after
the end of fall term. He said, all stu
dents who are interested are wel
comed for application at the school
of music. Although not necessary,
students may register for Music 197
or Music 397 and will receive one
hour credit for participation, said
Dean Kratt. Rehearsals will be held
in the music building auditorium at
3:00 Tuesdays and Thursdays.
“The Messiah” will be given in
McArthur court and will be accom
panied by a full orchestra. Later
concei ts may be planned, according
to Dean Kratt.
Dean Kratt was instrumental in
presenting “Elijah” by Mendelssohn
eight years ago. The chorus at that
time attracted national interest.
Seven years ago, he led a 600-voice
choir in “The Messiah.” Since that
time, the University has not of
fered a mass voice chorus concert.

First Day's
Said Brisk
A new system of registration re
quiring appointment for students
to pick up registration material
lias proved a boon to fall term en
rollment, Registrar Clifford Con
stance said yesterday. Six hundred
and nine students completed regis
tration yesterday. Lines are short

appears to be an all-around im
provement over long queues of tir
ing registrants of previous terms,
it was reported.
Constance said yesterday that it
would have been possible for 1,250
old students and 2,600 new students
to have picked up material during

767 Last Fall
The first day of freshman week
last fall term saw 767 students
complete registration. Enrollment
for the term totaled 5,905, the all
time record. This term’s total wan
not expected to reach that number.
Constance earlier forecast a
freshman class of 1,600 entering*
this fall, 2,000 sophomores, 600 jun
iors, and 800 seniors. In the gradu
ate school, 400 students are expect
ed, and there will be about 100 stu
dents and auditors. Only 2,500 vet
erans are expected to enroll, as
compared with the 3,100 attending
last year.
Crowding Unnecessary
Desks where registration mate
rial was picked up in McArthur
court were jammed for a short
time the first of the morning and
afternoon, but Constance said it
was unnecessary for students to
crowd during the opening hours as
they would not be required to stand
so long if coming shortly after.
Old students pick up material on
the date appointed by the regis
trar’s office. After consulting ad
