Colleges Expect New Surge of Veterans


By The Associated Press
U.S. colleges and universities-
many already bursting at the
seams-are bracing for a surge of
student veterans under the new
GI bill.
Estimates ofhthe number of ex-
servicemen who may take ad-
vantage of the educational bene-
fits range up to 250,000. The to-
tal is expected to mount steadily
for years.
Many schools, short of class-
room space and housing, can han-
dle few extra applicants. Others
foresee that the government's
tougher policy on draft defer-
mients will ease the crush by re-
moving second-rate scholars.
In general, school authorities
throughout the country voiced de-
termination to fit the GI's into
their student bodies somehow.
. School officials predicted that
the influx of veterans would raise
the overall quality of campus
thinking. One who expressed this
view, based on experience with
veterans under the World War
II and Korean GI bills, was Dean
Clarence C. Walton of Columbia
University's School of General
No Nonsense
"We called them 'no-nonsense'
students," said Dean Walton.
"They were hard-working, intel-
lectually curious, ready to ques-
tion accepted ideas - in short,
fine students."
The brunt of the enrollment in-
crease is likely to fall on tuition-
free schools supported by the
states, because unlike past GI bills
the new 'one does not provide for
tuition fees. It gives veterans $100
a month-just about enough for
room and board at most institu-
However, scholarship, low-inter-
est loans and other student aid
programs are booming, and many
veterans will be able to pay their
way at privately operated schools.
In Wisconsin, Eugene McPhee,
director of the state's nine uni-
versities, estimated the GI bill

might result in an extra 7000 en-
try applications. McPhee said he
had planned on accommodating
47,000 students for the term start-
ing next September and .any to-
tal over 50,000 "could create prob-
George L. Simpson, Jr., charl-
cellor of the regents who admin-
ister Georgia's university system
of 52,000 students, commented:
"We're crowded, but we'll do
the best we can. In one way or an-
other, one place or another, we'll
be able to accommodate the GI's."
Dr. Novice G. Fawcett, president
of Ohio State University, which
has an enrollment of 35,000, said
the school is developing a system
of branch campuses and should be
able to take the veterans in stride.
"The situation could change
with a cessation of hostilities in
Viet Nam;" he added.
G. W. Smith, registrar of the
University of Miami in Florida,
predicted a large enrollment in-
crease, particularly among grad-
uate students.
"Our problem is a shortage of
resident housing," Smith said. "We
have the classrooms and equip-
William Tanis, dean of admis-
sions at the University of Massa-
chusetts-enrollment 13,000 - was
"I wouldn't anticipate any prob-
lems," Tunis said. "The pressure
on colleges won't be the same as
in 1945. There simply aren't that
many GI's around."
Registrar W. Byron Shipp of
the University of Texas felt the
same way, but added: "the in-
creased enrollment wouldn't be
anything like after World War II
unless there is a peace settlement
in Viet Nam, the draft breaks
up, and everybody is turned loose
all at once."
Conrad Wedberg, director of ad-
missions at the privately operated
University of Southern California,
thought that institutions which

charge tuition would feel little im-
USC enrollment of 17,500 is 2500
short of capacity but it has a
$1500 tuition fee.
"Room and board here are about
$1000 a year, so the GI will prob-
ably take his $100 a month and
go to a free college," Wedberg
Tax-supported University of
California at Los Angeles, which
has an enrollment of 20,000, ex-
pected at least 1000 veterans with-
in the next few months.
Said the student counselor, Ed-
win Johnson: "You can rest as-
sured that there won't be very
many eligible men who won't take
advantage of the bill."
Effect of Bill
Harry Day, dean of students at
Florida State University, said it
might be some time before a firm
assessment of the GI bill's effect
on enrollment could be made.

"We are expecting some in-
crease because of the bill," Day
said, "but we also expect a slight
reduction in our September male
enrollment because the draft
boards are taking a second lookj
at grades."
Some privately operated schools
have decided against increasing
the size of classes.
The Rev. Edmond Walsh, di-'
rector of admissions at Catholic
Boston College, said this year's
freshman class numbered 1,552
and the college "is not going to
increase it beyond 1600."
Catholic Marquette Univresity
at Milwaukee, Wis., expected a 5
to 10 per cent increase in enroll-
ment, now 11,000, but a spokes-
man indicated that entrance re-
quirements may be stiffened.
"Increased applications will pro-
vide an additional opportunity to
be selective about students," the
spokesman remarked.
