The coinumittee which will name
candidates for the new dean of
the School of Education has coin-
pleted a major step in its work.
The six faculty and two stu-
dent membrs of the committee
have narrowed down 120 sugges-
tions to a list of 30 candidates
who will be closely considered as
possible successors for retiring
Dean Willard C. Olson.

the undergraduate representative
on the committee.
Miss Rhea emphasized that thef
preliminary group of candidates is
not necessarily final. "We're not
closing the possibility of other
candidates turning up," she said.
The committee currently is con-
tacting the 30 candidates. Prof.
Robert Dixon, chairman of the
committee, expects to know which
candidates definitely are interest-
ed within a few weeks.
Most of the candidates are from
outside the School of Education.
They range from Associate Dean
Charles Lehmann of the school
to Norman Drachler, superinten-
dent of Detroit schools, and Har-
old Howe, commissioner of edu-
cation in the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare.
Many of the candidates are cur-<
rently on the administration or
faculty of other schools of edu-z
cation. Several are public school$

needs for facilities, especially a

Miss Rhea said part of the con-

Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs Allan F. Smith said the drop
was not significant and would
probably have no effect on the
University's state appropriations
State officials had questioned the
University's enrollment projections
throughout the budget hearings.
The change in draft laws did
not have the severe impact which
was predicted partly because fed-
eral draft quotas have been lower
than expected in recent months,
and partly because of efforts by
the Law school and Rackham
School of Graduate Studies to
enlarge their first year classes.
Rackham's enrollment, which
was expected to suffer the most
severely from the change, stands
at 8,337, down only three per cent
from last year. Smith says the im-
pact was largely alleviated by de-.
laying the application cut-off date
by'several weeks and-by admitting
more of the fully qualified stu-
dents who in other years might
have been turned away'for space
Draft call-ups cut most sharply
into the business administration
school, whose current enrollment
is 1.072, down 199 from last year.
Nearly all of the drop was in the
group seeking masters' degrees,
Undergraduate enrollment in
the literary college rose slightly
from 11,839 to 12,106, an increase
of 2.3 per cent. The increase was
partially offset by a decrease of
138 literary college graduate stu-
dents bringing their number down
to 4,209.
A deliberate reduction in the
number of incoming freshmen ad-
mitted was made to compensate
for last year's over-enrollment.
Last year, 3,141 freshmen were ad-
mitted to fill 2,970 spaces. This
year, 2,895 were admitted.
Smith said total literary college
enrollment will be held steady at
around 12,000 until space and
faculty needs can be met. The
