plore kinds of work" were most
likely to carry out. their plans.
Those who indicated financial re-
wards or social aspirations often
never achieved their college goals.
Students Agree
Both students planning to en-
ter college and those not going
agreed on the value of higher ed-
ucation.
The cost of a college education!
and the factor of whether the'
student had sufficient funds was
a strong determiner of continuing
his education. Scholarships anid
loans provided aid to some stu-
dents, but it was felt that they
were far too limited and were
often awarded to students who
could manage to get through
school without it.
In a survey of students who ap-
plied for aid from Brigham Young.
.University, some 80 per cent of
those rejected money still went on
to college. In Wisconsin boys are
more willing to take student loans
than girls.
Marriage and military service

tors. A small percentage of sen-
ior girls usually with lower abil-
ity in school planned marriage
rather than college A sizable
number of boys entered the serv-
ices and either interrupted their
learning or never completed it.
Parental influence on the stu-
dent also greatly influenced the
student attitudes and plans for
the future. Generally students
whose fathers came from white
collar or professional work were
more likely to plan university at-
tendancetthan children of farm-
ers, factory workers, or: semi-
skilled workers.
In actual attendance the two
broad groups were equal. As the
ability of the student increased,
the influence 6f the parents oc-
cupation decreased-
Parental Attitude
The findings of these three
studies suggest that the decision
to go to college is influenced by
the attitudes of the parents. Dis-
couragement or indifference is

to be more influenced by their
parents than men.
There is little evidence about
the influence of ethnic origin on
attendance. In the Arkansas study
some 27 per cent of the white
students entered college while
only 20 per cent of the Negroes
did.
A greater number -of students"
tend to continue their education
if they come from larger high
schools with curriculums directed
toward college. The effect of ac-
creditation on going to college was
even more important than size.
Greatly Swayed
Teenagers seemed to exert con-
siderable influence on each other.
They were greatly swayed by the
plans of their'friends, many stat-
ed .college plans if their group in-
tended to go, even if their parents
could not afford to send them.
The Wisconsin survey attempt-
ed to find the relation between
socio-economic status of a com-
munity and the tendency of its
graduates to enter college. In-
creases in average income levels
did not result in proportionate in-
crease in the number of students
planning to enroll in'college.
There are four general areas
which were studied by the re-
searchers: the attitudes-of the stu-
dents, the type of school, the;
opinions of the parents, and the'
community. There were several in-
ferences that were made from the
composite findings.
Single Factor
Lack of motivation is probably
the greatest single factor in de-
terring high school graduates.j
These students mpst be encourag-
ed to take on a program in col-
lege which will prove academical-
ly challenging to them..
Insufficient funds stops many
students who have good but not
superior ability. Care must be tak-
en to. give scholarships to those
students who absolutely could not
attend college without help. Schol-
arships for only. very small
amounts should be eliminated and
more given for larger amounts
and longer periods of time. Stu-
dents must be encourgged to take
student loans, especially girls. This
would help increase the chances of
more people to attend college.
Members of minority groups
should be encouraged to continue
their education so the waste of tal-

ent can be stopped. More schools
in smaller communities should try
to get an accreditation.
Since students are influenced
by their peers to such a great de-
gree an overall program must be
started to encourage more high
school students togo on to college.

it hasn't changed in 50. It is a
town of 13,000people acting as
though it still had only 3,000.
"But along with this comfort-
able stagnation comes a fierce
loyalty for all that is Michigan.
The people of Niles are quite
proud of the University and stand
in awe of it. They would defend
its greatness to their dying day,
but they do not know anything
about it," he added.'
Radock noted that this was the
main problem-making the citi-
zen's of Michigan aware of the
components of the University and
show those people how the Uni-
versity affects them. Only then,
Radock said, will they be con-
cerned about it.
Union Administrative Vice-
President Michael Balgley remark-
ed that many people feel the
University is too big. Radock re-
plied that the public"has a visual
picture of all 25,000 students
charging across the Diag at once."
They do not see the 14 separate
schools, each operating on its own.
Harrah added that, because of
its size and traditional reputation,
the public tends to feel that "all
is well in Ann Arbor. They find.
it hard to believe that the E6ni-
versity has any problems."
Radock commented that it was
"up to the University to warn the
people of the risk and danger
which the state runs in allowing
the institution to lose its effective-.
ness.,,
Assistant Dean of Men Ivan W.
Parker noted that the University
has gained in stature in recent
years. "It used to be thought of
as a cushion school. Now only the
very best can get in."
