4 CaIpus Achieves
Fourteenth Year of
Continued Expansion
A record total of 36,063 stu-
dents have enrolled for fall term
classes at the University, an in-
crease of 1,610 over last fall.
The total includes 22,408 men
dnd 13,655 women, at both the
graduate and undergraduate lev-
els. The increase is smaller than
last year's high of 1,715.
This is the fourteenth consec-
utive year in which fall enroll-
ment has set a new record. In-
creases were noted in all schools
and departments, including addi-
tions of 41 students on the Dear-
born Campus and 62 on the Flint!
Campus.
Only Decrease,
There was a drop in the num-
ber of class and correspondence
credit extension students of 185,
which, according to University
Registrar Edward Groesbeck, is
due, to an increased numberof
students who would take those
courses enrolling for classes in
residence.
The number of undergraduates
increased by 818. Large gains oc-
curred in the literary college (1,-
228), education school (216), so-
cial work school (153) and the
business administration school
There are now 14,972 students
in'the literary college. This total
represents a smaller gain than last!
year, when.literary college enroll-
ment went up' by almost 500 stu-
dents more than it did the year
before.
The Law School, which went up
in enrollment by 35 last year to
1,115, this year declined to 1,097.
Another exception to the general
trend, the music school, decreased
in enrollment from 869 to 847.
One school that took a big jump
was natural resources which went
from 388 to 428, a jump of 10 per
cent.
The graduate student total in-
eludes increases of 307 and 677
at the PhD and MA levels, re-
spectively. A total of 8,326 grad-
uate students are enrolled and
assigned to individual schools and.
colleges according to their fields
of specialization, an additional 161,
graduates are in inter-college pro-
-grams.
Trend Continues
The current trend of increasing
enrollment figures began in 1951,!
when the enrollment was 17,226.
In the past six years, enrollment
has increased by 7,889. Adminis-
trators anticipate the trend will
continue in the future reaching a
total of as many as 50,000 by
1975.

WASHINGTON-The aides of the Senate Subcommittee on
Investigations have been sent to Saigon to check reports of
misuse of government property and funds, Sen. John L. McClel-
lan (D-Ark) said last night.
Asked, if the reports concerned bribery or corruption, Mc-
Clellan said: "That may be involved. We're not sure what all
will be found." McClellan, chairman of the Senate Government
Operations Committee, would not say where the reports came
from but called them "of sufficient reliability" to warrant dis-
patch of the two aides.
PROF. CHARLES M. REHMUS of the Institute of Labor and

PI KAPPA ALPHA fraternity has announced its decision to
accept an invitation to return to campus. The national organiza-
tion recently released plans to form a colony to re-establish the
Beta Tau chapter, which has been absent from campus since 1936.
The fraternity was 'chartered on campus in 1922 and was
active until the house met financial difficulties following the
Depression. Plans for rush to establish the colony will be an-
nounced before the end of the year.

UNIVERSITY STATISTICS released yesterday indicate that
almost half of the students filling out registrationaires did not
indicate a religious preference.
Out of 29,025 forms surveyed, 14,160 indicated no preference.
The 14,865 who did show a preference represented more than 50
denominations and beliefs.
The most represented religions on campus are: Roman Catho-
lic (4044); Judaism (2563); Lutheran (1395); Presbyterian
(1393): Methodist (1372); and Episcopal (1015).

A CITY COUNCIL policy may force a change in the route of
this year's homecoming parade. Although "hundreds of dollars"
have already been spent in advertising the route as beginning at
the Farmers Market, the city council, in response to complaints
from local people last year, adopted a policy forbidding parades
to originate there. Representatives of the Homecoming Committee
have met with city officials but have not yet been able to work
out the route. Attending the event will be Gov. George Romney,
G. Mennen Williams, Sen. Robert Griffin, Mayor Wendell E.
Hulcher and Miss Michigan. The parade will be held on Oct. 21
in the afternoon.
YPSILANTI'S GREEK Theatre was unanimously voted the

THE DIRECTOR of the Selective Service says that if he
found it morally impossible to accept the nation's policies, he
would go to jail rather than serve in the Armed Forces, the
Associated Press reports. Speaking Monday night to a largely
hostile audience at the Yale University Law School, Lt. Gen. Lewis
B. Hershey answered questions dealing with the Viet Nam conflict
and with the draft system he heads.
Asked what he would do if he were of draft age and found he
would be forced to perform military acts he "found morally im-
possible to support," Hershey said, "In order to maintain your
dignity, you'd have to go to the penitentiary."
Hershey said be felt sorry for the young men who found his

marred by several pushing incidents between the participants and apparently unsympathetic bystanders.

Petition Cites
Baits Dorm
Inadequacies
Residents' Complaints
Include Study Areas,
Transportation, Food
By DEBORAH REAVEN
"We, the residents of Vera Baits
Housing, ask that you correct
some of the FRETS of living in
off-campus dormitories,"
Approximately 250 of the al-
most 600 residents of the Baits
housing complex have signed
petitions to the University Ad-
ministration concerning t h e s e
"FRETS": food, recreation, edu-
cation, transportation, service. The
petitions will be presented tonight
to Student Government Council
with a recommendation from Uni-
versity Activities Center president,
Jay Zulauf, '67, that SGC review
them and analyze the possibilities
of taking action.
However, Director of Housing
John Feldkamp said last night
that "every point (in the petition)
is presently in the mill and has
been for some time.
Those problems that do not al-
ready have solutions will have
them soon, he added, asserting
that his office has attempted to
keep the channels of communica-
tion with students open.
The major student complaints
center on alledgedly inadequate
bus service from Baits to central
campus, high prices of food at the
North Campus commons, lack of
recreation facilities and study
areas, and as one petitioner said,-
the feeling of "living on a desert
island."
Bus transportation as of now
does not include a bus earlier than
7:32 a.m., nor one after 12:36 a.m.
Students with 8 o'clock classes are
complaining that an earlier morn-
ing bus is necessary since the
commons does not serve breakfast
and the 7:32 bus leaves no time
for eating on campus. The lack of
late evening bus service means
that all Baits residents without
cars must be back on North Cam-
pus at 1:00 even after weekend
dates.
Another major complaint is that
Baits residents must ride the bus
for an extra 20 minutes around
North Campus because the buses
make a complete circuit of the
area, going first to the married
housing complex.
Besides the complaint that there
is no breakfast available on North
Campus except from vending
machines, the petition also states
that lunches and dinners are too
expensive and that only "pre-
packaged, pre-refrigerated and
pre-cooked" snacks are available.
Supper is "fine, unless you want
snacks or something costing less
than about $1.50 a night," says the
petition. And lunches do not sell
at' "lunch-like" prices.
Recreation facilities do not gx-
ist as of now according to the pe-
tition. It specifically complains of
the lack of furniture in the loun-
ges. The same complaint also ap-
plies to study areas.
The'petition also ofiers solutions
to the problems. The main pro-
posal concerning bus service, be-
sides the schedule, is that alter-
nate buses make the loop around
North Campus in the opposite di-
rection going first to Baits. This
would eliminate the 20 minute
ride the students now take.
The petition also suggests instal-
lation of refrigerators on corridors,
opening the Commons for some
sort of breakfast and at night for
snacks, setting up a few temporary

basketball nets, using the dining
room for activities such as UAC's
Little Club, and opening part of
the Commons Sunday through
Thursday nights as a study hall.
Robert West, manager of the
North Campus Commons said he
would be more than happy to serve
breakfast if 300 students requested
it. However, a sufficient number
has not shown interest in that
service.
West also noted that he has re-
cently started offering sandwich-
es of all kinds as well as the
usual variety of lunches and din-
ners and will soon be instituting
a soup, sandwich and beverage
package for 85 cents.
He has also sent a questionnaire
to students trying to determine
the popularity of a student meal
program utilizing coupons.
Study areas have been discussed
with West and he has agreed to
the use of the snack bar as a stu-
dy area evenings up till midnight.
If the need arises; he will consider
onning the dining area upstairs.
