Oregon Students
To Gamble For
Corvallis Tickets
Tickets for the Oregon State game in Corvallis November
20 will soon be distributed to Oregon students by a new meth
od decided upon by the executive council last night as the most
“equitable way.”
According to the process, a student may have a chance to
obtain one of the 1500, two dollar admittances by signing tick
et no. 33. in his athletic book, and dropping it in a ballot box in
the Co-op beginning next Thursday and lasting until Monday.
A total of 1450 names will then be drawn from the box at a«
executive council meeting Alon
day night, November 7. The
50 tickets left over will be al'
lotted to executive council one!
Order of the O members.
The latter will take care of
seating arrangements and will po
lice the special Oregon rooting sec
tion at Corvallis.
The names drawn will be put in
alphabetical order and placed on
lists to be posted in the library,
Co-op and McArthur court for
three days, in order that students
may see if their names are there.
To insure no borrowing of ath
letic books, students will be requir
ed to bring both their ticket book
and registration cards when they
purchase their tickets at McAr
thur court November 8, 9, and 10.
Book numbers and names must co
incide with the atheltic office lists.
For the approximately 30 stud
ents whose athletic books are not
ready yet, slip of paper may be re
ceived from the office of Howard
Lemons’ athletic business manag
er, with the number of their book on
them, which may be filled out and

Entire State
Drops Slightly
The enrollment in the six major
institutions of the State system of
higher education dropped less
than one per cent this year despite
a decrease in veteran enrollment of
11.8 per cent, according to Chan
cellor Paul C. Packer.
Registration at the close of the
enrollment period is now 17,259,
only 114 fewer than last year’s
record breaking 17,373 students
enrolled on the same date. Regis
tration at the University of Ore
gon showed an increase this year
of 257 students, making a total of
6,899. Although Oregon State col
lege has 7,418 students enrolled, it
has enrolled 63 students less last
Chancellor Packer believes reg
istration next year may show an
other slight drop. He gave as the
reason entering classes into the
now large upper division section
will be slightly smaller. This de
cline, however, will not be enough
to bring student bodies within
range of the facilities which were
designed for fewer than 11,000, he
The chancellor stressed the need
of bringing faculties and physical
plants up to the necessary levels to
meet the needs of the present en
enrollment and to prepare for an
even greater registration beginning
about 1955 and reach a peak about
The present enrollment is con
centrated more heavily than be
fore in upper division classes,
which being small, increase teach
