    Smaller Student Body
Predicted Next Year
A\ ith the University returning' to a pre-war status of incom
ing high school graduates composing the majority of the student
body and veterans in the minority, new balances in the enroll
ment picture are seen by C. L. Constance, registrar.
I he composition of the student body is now more typical,
but the size will never decrease to the level before the war." Con
stance stated.
Betw een 5.000 and 5,500 students are exnected to enroll in the
University next fall, according to
Constance. This presents a con
trast to the pre-war level which
never reached 4,000.
Last fall, 5,882 students entered
school. By spring term this figure
had been reduced to 5,300. An all
time high is expected by Constance
and Lyle Nelson, director of infor
mation, around 1960 when the war
babies hit the campus. Enrollment
will probably soar over 6,500, the
officials believe.
This permanently enlarged en
rollment has presented new prob
lems to the administration in pro
viding adequate housing needs,
class rooms, and faculty. The pres
w ent building program is aimed at
necessary expansion of the physi
cal plant, as well as replacement
of outdated equipment, Constance
pointed out.
With 1,800 as the preliminary
estimate for graduating seniors,
the fourth-year class is the largest
in University history. A majority
of the class is veterans, Constance
“This is the end of the big wave
of vets which came in 1946. Be
cause of this abnormal increase,
next year’s senior class will be ap
proximately one-third smaller,”
the registrar said.
“The vets next year will be re
duced about one-half in number
from last fall's 2,500. We are gues
sing that each year the number
will drop 50 per cent,” he stated,
“but there will always be some vets
on the campus.”
The number will depend on what
action the state and federal auth
orities may take on the Veteran’s
Administration program.
Paris, Phooey! Modern Fashions
Only Renovated Oriental Art
If you’re easily disenchanted,
don’t go in the Oriental Art Mu
seum. You’ll discover some of our
“modern” ideas aren’t so new after
Take women’s hat s—all right,
don’t take them. But there’s an
early Mongolian chapeau in the
museum that even Lilly Dache
wouldn’t claim. It's a little jeweled
number with a built in wig that
looks as if it were coiffured by a
mud-dauber. Must have been
equally “killing” to the lady who
wore it, since the wig is a human
Upstairs, we see the modern in
fluence in a gallery of 18th century
-Japanese prints. There’s a picture
of one lady who could really break
up Dick Tracy’s happy home. She
might be called “No Mouth” or
“Persimmon Mug.”
Then there’s a girl dressed in a
scanty red dress doing what looks
suspiciously like a strip tease. The
♦'picture is called “Foreign Dance.”
And we’ve finally discovered
where the grisly new eye makeup
i came from—the Japanese male. In
all the prints, the men sport red
eye pencil slanted up at the corners
to give them that “doe” look.
The Orientals had a few gadgets
we might do well to revive. For in
stance, the beautifully decorated
pitcher from Tibet that would eas
ily hold three quarts of liquid (your
choice.) And the four-foot jars that
would hold years of cigarette butts
and ashes.
But no one would argue with a
few improvements modern civiliza
tion has made. Ladies can thank
their lucky stars that they only
have corset stays to contend with.
Ladies in the early East had to
breathe lightly to avoid being im
paled on their stone girdle orna
ments. And imagine courting on a
straight-backed wooden loveseat!
You fellows can be glad that
Japanese hairpins have gone out
of style. Otherwise you might have
to dance with a girl with her hair
full of six-inch daggers with long
dangly metal flowers. Try keeping
that from getting caught in your
Notes in Bottles Remain Secret
V. S. Fogdall, director of men’s
affairs, and Donald M. DuShane,
director of student affairs, failed
to disclose the contents of notes
tfound in bottles that crashed
through windows of their homes
Friday night.
However, in an Emerald inter
view Monday, Fogdall stated that
the note he got implied that the
bottle throwings were the work of
TNE members or sympathizers.
This was the second time in six
weeks that the Fogdall home has
been the target of bottle throwers.
The first incident occurred after a
statement was issued by Fogdall
concerning the illegal drinking of
liquor in living organizations.
In commenting on the two inci
dents, Fogdall said they both could
be attributed to issues prevalent
at the time that were contrary to
the rules of the University.
In taking corrective measures, he
said, he was not enforcing his own
personal standards, but rather
those set down by the official Uni
versity commission, and enforce
able through the discipline code of
the school.
TNE members on the campus,
Fogdall declared, are in a small
minority. It evolved into a political
pressure group from its original
status as a national drinking or
ganization, he explained, because
political power was necessary to
keep the organization from being
