Winter is freezing the ground

ever-increasing University enroll-

tween the Central and North
Campuses seems a logical solution
to the growth problem. Two cam-

the result of the process.

Hershey, Hart Disagree on
Reclassification Statement

Total enrollment at the Univer-
sity and its branches for the win-
ter term has been estimated at
more than 33,000, according to
Registrar Edward G. Groesbeck.
This compares with last semester's
record enrollment of 34,453.
Students at the main campus
number 22,740, along with 1,455
law and medical students who
were registered separately. Last
semester, 27,856 were enrolled at
the Ann Arbor campus.
A breakdown of figures on
school, class and in-state, out-
of-state lines for the present se-
mester's enrollment was unavail-
able yesterday.
Out-State Students
Last semester, after six years of
decline, the ratio of out-state stu-
dents rose to 27.2 per cent on the
Ann Arbor'campus.
In the fall of 1951, University
enrollment was 17,266. In the past
five years, enrollment has in-
creased by 6,270. Enrollment has
increased about 1000 per year
through the early sixties, with an
increase of 1700 last year.-
Projections released in Decem-
ber, 1964 by the Office of Aca-
demic Affairs predicted an in-
crease in enrollment to 41,797 by
1970 and 50,186 by 1975. These
figures anticipated a proportion-
ally much higher enrollment in-
crease at non-Ann Arbor centers.:
An increase of 63 per cent was
expected by 1975 for the Ann Ar-
bor campus, one of 153 per cent
for the Dearborn, Flint and
Graduate Study Centers, and
more than a 500 per cent rise in
enrollment at Flint College.
Growth predictions released in
the fall of 1963 anticipated an in-
crease to only 36,000 by 1968 and
47,500 by 1975. These were revised
after the unprecedented flood of
students in the fall of last year:
caused severe dormitory over-
crowding.
Groesbeck said that he hopes to
extend advance classification pro-
cedures to graduate students next
year. The system was used to pre-
register 14,793 undergraduates forl
the winter semester.
Groesbeck predicted that event-
ually all student records will be
maintained on computer tape to
simplify registration and that
student fees will be assessed by
mail.
ACTIVITY MERGE

Hotline
The Student Legal Defense Committee has collected about
$1200 from faculty members for funds to appeal the cases of the
students who draft status was changed because of last October's
draft board sit-in. Jim McEvoy, Grad, chairman of the com-
mittee, said he expects the majority of the faculty will contribute
by the end of the week.
The goal of the committee is to raise $5,000-$10,0000 for the
court appeals. They will expand their campaign to students next
week, probably in the form of letter soliciting or a bucket drive.
McEvoy stressed that the committee, an ad hoc one composed
of four students and four faculty members, is not taking a stand
on the war or the draft. "We are only concerned with the viola-
tions of the civil liberties of students," he said.
Approximately 500 men attended the fraternity mass rush
meeting last night. Attendance was below last semester's, but
Richard House, '67, Interfraternity Council rush chairman, attri-
buted the decrease to the large number of men who are rushing
for the second time and are thus already familiar with fraternities.
At the end of the second day of rush registration, 725 men
had signed up for this semester's rush. The number of registered
rushees may drop somewhat this semester, IFC Executive Vice-
President Kelly Rea, '66, predicted, "but the number pledging
should be about the same or greater." Last semester, 1425 men I
registered for rush and 625 pledged in the largest rush in IFC
history.
At the end of the first set of Panhellenic rush parties, 750
of the 1127 who registered are still participating, according to!
Linda Koehler, '66, chairman of rush counselors. Miss Koehler
said that about 100 girls dropped because they did not have 2.0
or better grade point averages last semester, and she attributed
the other drop-outs to "disinterest, finances and other reasons."
