Registration on
campus closes
The city's two-week special voter registration drive ended
yesterday with 2,543 new voters as of Thursday.
City Clerk Harold Saunders expects that the September
totals for registration, including sign-ups in Waterman Gym,
will be between 4,000 and 5,000 new voters.
The special drive, Sanders said, registered 18.6 per cent
of those between 18 and 21 in the city. "I feel this was a
pretty good beginning," he said.
However, campus organizers said they were disappoint-
ed with the turnout and hoped Saunders would extend the
drive for one more week in the Fishbowl.

its fourth month.

"The drive was not very suc-

Democratic Party voter services
chairman, "because we were
strait-jacketed by Saunders' loca-

and more deputies for an effective

Wilner and others have urged
Saunders to extend registration to
the dorms and conduct door-to-
door registration.
Saunders plans another drive
later this month, but has not yet
announced plans for any dorm
sites. So far he has refused to
allow door - to - door registration,

of their 12-day mission.
The fourth manned lunar land-
ing, last August's flight used the
first lunar roving vehicle on the
moon, and brought back to earth+
some 180 pounds of lunar rocks
and soil.
Scott, Apollo 15 spacecraft com-j
mander, opened the symposium1
with several comments on man'sf

need to discover and the impor-
tance of lunar exploration.
"Data returned from the moon
will lead us to an understanding;
of our own origin," Scott said.
"From exploration comes dis-
covery and from discovery comes
knowledge and understanding of
mind and spirit," Scott, also a1
veteran of the Gemini 8 and Apollo
9 flights, told the crowd.1
Scott said that the Apollo 151
mission yielded valuable geological;
results, including a core sample of
nine feet of lunar soil that included
over 58 different layers.

Security has been tightened
against dogs and other pets in
buildings under a new crack-

all University classrooms, resi-

were placed in all University
buildings. A hundred signs were
placed in the Union alone.
According to William Joy, di-
rector of the department of en-
vironmental health and safety,
the signs were posted because of
an increasing number of com-
plaints from maintenance crews,
faculty and students about loose
dogs running in and around
buildings and central campus.
The basic problem, he said, was
one of sanitation and health.
Although compliance with the
pet rule is voluntary. Joy re-
ports that cooperation from stu-
dents has been good, There has
been an 80 per cent decrease
this year in the number of com-

The decrease in dogs may
also be due to increased activity
