Musical Society Announces Program
(Continued from Page 1)

The bumper crop of post-warV
babies has matured into candi-
dates who are clamoring for ad-
mission to colleges throughout the
College admissions officials are
now struggling with the monu-
mental task of selecting freshman
classes from greater numbers of
better qualified students.
And the tension among students
who are waiting for notification of
acceptance or refusal is heighten-
ed this spring by the knowledge
that intense competition has been
increased by the sheer numbers.
Applications Increase
Applications for admission to
the prestige colleges of the Ivy
League and the seven women's
colleges that make up the league's
feminine counterpart have in-
creased from 9 to 25 per cent,
according to a survey of the ad-
missions offices.
A study published in the fall of
1962 by George H. Hanford, ex-
ecutive vice president of the Col-
lege Entrance Examination Board,
predicted a 24.6 per cent increase
in the number of applicants dur-
ing the present academic year fol-
lowed by another heavy enroll-
ment next year.
Hanford based his projection on
the number of potential entrants
in the age group, and suggested

New 123 Text
Professors Arthur M. Eastman,
Caesar R. Blake, Hubert M. Eng-
lish Jr., Robert Lenaghan, Alan
B. Howes and Leo F. McNamara
of the English department are col-
laborating on a new textbook to
replace the English 123 text,
"Points of Departure," by the fall
of 1966.,

that, the pressure on the highly
selective colleges would be less
than on colleges in general.
Brown Rise Highest
Brown University reported the
greatest increase in applicants in
the Ivy League, although its fresh-
man class is the smallest. The
number of applicants increased by
almost 1000, for a rise of 25 per
.Members of the college's ad-
mission staff spent more time in
outlying areas during the last
year, with the result that appli-
cations from the West Coast and
the Southwest doubled this year.
Improved interest among alumni
in encouraging talented students
to attend Brown were also given
credit for the rise in applicants.
Range at '7 Sisters'
Among the "seven sisters" the
increases ranged from 9 per cent
at Mount Holyoke to 20 per cent
at Barnard. Vassar reported a rise
of 10 per cent, Bryn Mawr 10 to
12 per cent, and Radcliffe, Smith
and Wellesley each reported about
15 per cent more applicants than
in the preceding year. All will
notify applicants of their decisions
on April 22.
Miss Helen M. McCann, Bar-
nard director of admissions, said
that the rise in applicants follow-
ed a 16 per cent increase in 1962-
63. This year the increase was al-
most entirely from students who
would not be within commuting
distance of the college.
In the Ivy League, Cornell,
Harvard and Princeton reported
increases in applications of about
10 per cent, Darmouth 10 to 13
per cent, Columbia 14 per cent,
Yale 15 per cent, the University
of Pennsylvania, 17 to 20 per cent
and Brown 25 per cent. Their com-
mon reply date is April 15.
E. Aldon Dunham, director of
admissions at Princeton, said that
increasingly good guidance on the

secondary level had resulted in
very few applications from ob-
viously unqualified students. He
indicated, however, that the pros-
pect of turning down about 4000
highly qualified applicants was
not very pleasant.
