Fall Enrollment Soars



of 29,16

Officer Aunnounces
Twelfth Annual Rise
. Literary College Leads Increases
With 755 Jump over Last Year
The enrollment for the fall semester hassoared to a record
peak of 29,103, an increase of 1715 over last fall.
In releasing official enrollment figures yesterday,' Registrar
Edward Groesbeck announced that this total marks the 12th con-
secutive year where fall enrollment has climbed to a new record.
It is, however, the first time in recent history that the totals
astounded the predictors. Last spring, officials had planned for a
student body of 28,800.
Leading the increases was the literary college, which jumped
from 8,779 students last fall to 9,536. The graduate school recorded











Will Analyze,
Not Predict
The Survey Research Center has
started its national pre-election
poll, Prof. Philip Converse of the
political science department said
Converse, an SRC study director,
explained that the SRC's Political
Behavior Program survey is being
conducted by a specially trained
staff. This 'staff will interview
about 2,000 people across the na-
tion in their homes.
The purpose of the survey is not
to predict the elections, but to
collect and analyze information
on political behavior, Converse em-
phasized. The SRC is more inter-
ested in "why" people vote as
they do, rather than how they'
vote, he added.
The surveys are Uyite .accurate,
being off only one to one and
one half per cent of the time, or
more accurately, three per cent
off 19 out of 20 times, Converse
said. The margin of error is in-
versely proportional to the num-
ber of people interviewed, he add-
r An average interview lasts from
one hour to an hour and a half,
Converse said. The questionnaire
covers first opinions and attitudes
on parties, candidates, and issues.
The person answering the ques-
tionnaire is given time to discuss
what he likes about each can-
didate and what action he would
like to see the candidate take.
Other questions have ready-made
answers from which the responder
can choose.
Civil Rights
This year about 15 minutes are
devoted to the progress of the
civil rights movement, integration
and the racial make-up of the re-
sponder's neighborhood, Converse
said. One question asks if the per-
son would comply with an order
to bus his children to another
The last section contains per-
sonal questions about family, in-
come, and occupation. One ques-
tion asks "How many more chil-
dren do you and your spouse ex-
pect to have?"
There are three steps in select-
ing those interviewed, Converse
said. First, SRC establishes 60 to
70 sampling unit areas, each con-
taining one or more counties.
Then, houses are selected from
within these units.
Analysis and Publication
Including costs of travel, train-
ing, and staff salaries, each inter-

a 316 student increase over its
6604 total. from last year. And the
engineering college showed an in-
crease of 173 to hike its total en-
rollment to 3,079.,
The real surprise came in the
size of the freshman class of the
literary college. Officials, in plan-!
ning housing and course accom-
modations last year, had foreseen
a 2650-student freshman class.
But the final totals will reportedly
be closer to 2950.
Not Released
Groesbeck has not yet released
the enrollment by class or the in-
state, out-of-state totals.
He did say that the extra stu-
dents, which produced unusual
dormitory and classroom crowding,
were brought here by an increase
in student loan funds.
To prevent a similar miscalcula-
tion next year, Groesbeck expects
"to be on top of the freshman
situation.'' The admission~s office'
is reportedly considering "delayed
admissions policy." Under this pro-
cedure, a student would be accept-
ed with the stipulation that he
begin school in the second term.
The winter terms in past years
have traditionally shown a de-
cline of about 1000 from the fall.
Spring enrollment last year drop-
ped to 26,161, a decrease of more
than 1200 from the previous fall.
Officials are predicting about
28,000 for this year's winter term.
However, if the delayed acceptance
procedure is in~troduced; the win-
ter total will swell next year.
The enrollment figures released
yesterday are based on "residence
credit enrollment." That figure in-
cludes all students who are ful-
filling undergraduate or graduate
requirements on the University's
Ann Arbor, Dearborn or Flint
Not Included
The total does not encomnpass
the students taking credit courses
under the extension program or
those enrolled in non-credit
courses. There were nearly 6000
students in this category last
Groesbeck stressed the continu-
ing upward trend of enrollment
which began with the return of
the war veterans.
In the fall of 1951, 17,226 stu-
dents enrolled here. By 1955, the
total had leaped to 20,676. In 1960,
the student body had, expanded to
24,538. It has increased about 1000
each year in the early sixties un-
til increasing over 1700 this fall.
The estimates which will be sent
to the Legislature reportedly fore-
see an enrollment of about 30,400
for next fall.

Strike GM
At Ten
DETROIT (P)-Walter Reuther,
president of the United Auto
Workers, said early this morning
that he was "very pessimistic that
a strike, against' General Motors
could be avoided."
"The time is short and the dif-
ferences remaining are great,"
Reuther wrote Louis Seaton, vice-
president for personnel of GM,
yesterday in proposing compulsory
arbitration. "There is now the
basis 'for reasonable doubt tha
those differences can be resolved
on a mutually satisfactory basis
in the few hours remaining."
Reuther proposed that a three-
member board of arbitration re-
solve company-union differences
on grievance procedures, union
representation in the plants, pro-
duction quotas, discipline and
working conditions.
The UAW chief conceded that
GM's latest money package offer
would provide economic gains
similar to those previously won at
Chrysler Corp. and Ford Motor
Co. Reuther has estimated these
worth 54 cents an hour over the
three-year span of the new agree-
Reuther told Seaton a strike
against gigantic GM would have
"broad ramifications and impact"
upon the national economy, di-
rectly affecting such other indus-
tries as steel, rubber, glass, tex-
tiles, aluminum, copper, lead, zinc
and electrical equipment.
GM itself employs 354,000 pro-
duction workers in 129 plants in
71 cities.
Even if it shuts off GM's assem-
bly of new 1965 models at 10 a.m.
today, the union. disclosed it will
permit GM parts plants to con-
tinue in production -- to avoid
crippling Ford and Chrysler.
IQC Protests
Rate Revision
Interquadrangle Council passed
a motion last night concurring
with an Assembly House Council
request that the administration
be denied the right to revise room
and board rates during period of
"The recommendation will be
submitted as a joint motion from
the two bodies," IQC president
John Eadie, '65, said.
The resolution also suggested a
revision of the unlimited admis-
sions quota policy and the con-
struction of new dorms as steps
that could eliminate overcrowd-
Eugene Haun, University hous-
ing director, appeared at the
meeting and promised to submit
a letter explaining in as great
detail as possible the recent room
and board rate hike.
Haun's action is in response to
an IQC motion requesting a brea:-
down of the use of room and
board funds and a rationale for
the rate increase.
Further, a committee was set up
to investigate the legality of the
rate revision clause of the room
and board contract.



Foreign Aid
bill Passage
Committee To Resolve
$217 Million Slash
ate passed late yesterday Presi-
dent Lyndon Johnson's $3.3 billion
foreign aid authorization bill after
adopting a compromise solution to
its long controversy over legisla-
tive reapportionment.
A 45-16 roll call vote passed the
measure which sets a ceiling on
foreign aid spending fortle cur-
rent year. Actual funds must be
provided in separate legislation.
Passage of the measure came
in a burst of speed after the ap-
portionment stalemate created by
a liberal Democratic filibuster
against a proposal to delay court-
ordered reapportionment of both
houses of state legislatures on a
population basis was broken.
Out of the Way
With that issue out of the way,
the Senate quickly adopted by
voice vote an amendment by Sen.
George D. Aiken (R-Vt) to re-
quire of aid contractors doing
business with the foreign aid pro-
gram the same loyalty oath he
said is required of beneficiaries of
the new war on poverty program.
The bill, as it cleared the Sen-
ate. had been cut $216,700,000 be-
low the $3,516,700,000 Johnson re-
quested and what the House pre-
viously authorized.
The measure now goes to a
Senate-House conference commit-
tee for a reconciliation of differ-
ences in the two versions.
Across the Board
After first cutting the bill across
the board by $216,700,000, $50
million below the recommenda-
tions of its foreign aid committee,
the Senate subsequently restored
$50 million for the purchase of
domestically produced beef, poul-
try and other meat products for
donation to school lunch and sim-
ilar ,programs abroad.
The House conferees will con-
sider, among other Senate changes,
administration - opposed amend-
ments raising interest rates 'on
economic development 1o a n s
abroad and imposing an inflexible
prohibition against further assist-
ance to Indonesia.
The latter amendment would
deny aid to the Sukarno regime
and terminate training of In-
donesian military and police per-
sonnel at United States bases or
military schools or under U.S.

CHIEF JUSTICE EARL WARREN and the other members of the special commission that investi-
gated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy present their report to President Lyndon
B. Johnson. The findings are expected to point conclusively to the guilt of Lee Harvey Oswald, the
ex-Marine marksman who was murdered in Dallas two days after the assassination and his arrest.
Commission sources have disclosed that no evidence of a link has been found between Oswald and
any conspiracy of the left or right, here or abroad. From left are:,John J. McCloy; Sen. Richard.
Russell (D-Ga); Rep. Gerald Ford (R-Mich); Warren; Johnson; Allen Dulles; Sen. John. Sherman

lems which currently face the
Heyns said that the major con-
cern of the administration was
how to meet the expansion which
is inevitable in the next decade.'
Felheim spoke of creativity with-
in faculty and of faculty relation-
ships with students.
"We have an important' com-
mitment to extend the University
facilities to as many people as
possible, but have at the same
time a commitment to maintain
the quality of graduate and un-
dergraduate instruction," Heyns
"It would be foolish for anyone
to think that the next three or
four years will -be as luxurious as
it has been in the past."

Another difficulty is organiza-
tion. In the University organiza-
tion is centered around depart-
ments. To individual faculty mem-
bers their position within their
department is more important in
terms of security than any other
relationship, Felheim said.,

Smithson said that the problem
closest to student leaders is stu-
dent apathy. "Most students ap-
pear to be inwardly oriented with
no commitment to anything larger
than their personal lives. Student
activities are one way to attempt
to instill a larger sense of respon-
1 sibility in students."
