Indications are that the freshman
class will be as large as many boys
are planning to combine college work
with one of the various military en

better employment conditions favor
the attendance of girls, who are less
self-supporting than men.
Early filing of applications and
early reservations of living quarters,

ommended by Mr. Lemon.
