IOWA CITY - An unmarried
college student may one day be
as rare on the campus as a rac-
coon coat or hip-pocket flask.
In the 15 years since the end
of World War II, the number of
married students has jumped from
a few thousand to nearly a mil-
lion. Assuming continued pros-
perity, most educators think the
number will continue to rise.
Campus marriages are so rela-
tively new, no one knows for sure
just how many there really are.
Even the United States Census
ureau, which counts everything
hat moves and a lot of things
that don't, has made only one
That survey, taken in the fall
of 1958, indicated that 30 per cent
of the men and 20 per cent of the
women attending college were
married. This doesn't really prove
much, however, because it includes
part-time and graduate students,
many of whom had their degrees
before getting married.
The best guess, and that's all
it is, is that married students rep-
resent 10 to 25 per cent of the en-
rollments of most coeducational
colleges. Here at the University of
Iowa, a typical large state insti-
tution, it's more than 26 per cent
-2,820 out of 10,789.
This new type student body has
brought many new problems to
university officials. Probably the
biggest is the question of suitable
housing for student families.
Today the university is building

The announcement said that

Spring is here; In all its ra-
diance, color and excitement,
LIFE brings forth the theme of
spring for its issue of Apr. 18.
Seven pages of colored outdoor
scenes describe the visible as-
pects of the season of inspira-
tion. For those of you withdut a,
lab, having hours of free time,
LIFE will entice you to see the
Arb for the real view of spring
on the local scene. LIFE scans
the new green to be found even
when the background is a busy
metropolis. Winter has shown
its last blasts of arrogance, and
the gentle air of spring prevails
both in LIFE and in Ann Arbor.
REGENERATION OF LIFE--
Easter brings forth many ar-
ticles for your reading pleasure.
The spirit of devotion is related
by LIFE in a series of drawings
by Rembrandt. These sketches
by a master appear as rough
preparations for a later work
of art. They are, however, an
end in themselves, full of the
vivid meaning of the hallowed
Easter theme. LIFE further en-
acts the story of Easter through
its coverage of the Passion
plays which abound in the
United States at this time of
year. The particulai play fo-
cused on in the Apr. 18 issue
has a cast of steelworkers. LIFE
points out the rugged charac-
terization supplied by these
workingmen, a natural cast for
portrayals of the hard-driving
Hats are the center of one
theme. Frilly creations with
nearly three-digit price tags
emerge from the pages of LIFE.
A YOUNG GIRL'S FANCY--
The other fashion feature is a
full-length story. Look, girls,
you can't fool me now! Those
tired-looking eyes are not the
result of diligent study, hilar-
ious parties or any other natur-
al cause. Your eyes are the re-
sult of a twenty-minute ordeal
encouraged by Helena Ruben-
stein, Max Factor and com-
pany. LIFE gives a complete
story of the latest make-up
concern, a concern here to stay.
This "Big Eye" Look" has cap-
tured the fancy of the model,
beatnik and housewife alike.
For the full scoop, look to
LIFE, Apr. 18.
LOVE'S A GAMBLE-What
would spring be without love,
though? Here at the University
new romances emerge, old ro-
mances are rejuvenated and
all hearts melt a bit with the
spring thaw. LIFE'S romance
coverage is of world-wide curi-
osity. The cover previews the
romance of the year, well at
least equal billing with Marga-
ret and Tony (who incidental-
ly appear in LIFE this ,week).
The title of the Andrea-Gamble
article should be, "How Not to
Honeymoon." The photograph-
ers seem to appear at every-
thing from the blood tests right
through to the young lovers'
flight by plane to a secret hide-
away. It's a shame few of us
can make the pages of an in-
ternational publication, but if
that's elopement some new defi-
nition is necessary. Spring
with its excitement is herald-
ed by LIFE, Apr. 18. News,
fashion, religion and romance
should satisfy any readers. Buy
