So What! It's about time they

At any hour of the day or night
one can see people gossiping, dis-
cussing, even studying at The

parties are actually held at The

"There is definitely more college

Mrs. Rose Nagelbach' of the Col-

with colleges. According to reports
from this and other centers with
parallel aims, there are 1.5 million
places in the country's colleges for

There are three basic reasons
for the decline in applicants:
-The tremendous growth of

made out to the printer who now refuses to print The Paper was
made on a non-existent account. Kindman claims it is all a mis-,

withdrawn its account from the bank it had been using. He says
it is all being straightened out now.
At the same time, the East Lansing chapter of the American

HONG KONG (P-KOREAN WAR turncoat Clarence Adams
crossed the Communist China border into Hong Kong early today
with his Chinese wife and their small son and daughter.
Adams, from Mephis, Tenn., had been expected to cross the
border May 9 after Chinese officials notified Hong Kong authori-
ties he was coming out. There was no immediate explanation for
the delay.
last night he had documentary evidence that the kabaka or king
of Buganda, Sir Edward Mutesa, planned as early as April 12 a
"full scale rebellion" against Obote's central government.
Obote told Parliament that security forces had taken over
all the kabaka's palaces in the Buganda kingdom, a province of
Uganda. There are several royal palaces besides the main one at
Mengo, outside Kampala.
But the president made no mention of the kabaka's present
whereabouts, and his fate remained unknown.
Reports reaching Nairobi, Kenya, said persons close to the
kabaka hinted he was safe, free and probably out of the country.

C il
Senators View
NATO Action
WASHINGTON (P) - There is
strong sentiment in the Senate for
reducing United States troop com-
mitments to North Atlantic Treaty
Organization nations, an Asso-
ciated Press survey has disclosed.
Forty-four senators said they
favored eventual withdrawal of a
substantial portion of the six U.S.
divisions of 225,000 American
fighting men massed along the
Iron Curtain.
But of this group, only 15 said
they would cut U.S. forces to a
token level of one division at this
time as suggested recently by Sen-
ate Democratic Leader M i k e

to those students coming in at the
junior level.
After reviewing the situation
this year, however, they have
found that they are still able to
take a fair number of sophomores,
though still giving preference to
would-be juniors, because the ac-
tual increase in transfer students
is off the anticipated number by
10 per cent.
It appears that the University
is not one of those colleges with
room to spare in the freshman
class. The number of applications
exceeds the amount actually ac-
cepted by almost 300 per cent and
as a result, the competition re-
mains fairly nerve-racking.
One possible way to alleviate
this situation might be by admit-
ting more students in the winter
and spring-summer semester.
