Are Increased
More Than 1,400 Receive
Grants Of_$160,000
Student loans took a decided jump
this year with 232 more students re-
ceiving $28,350.48 more in loans than
in 1937-38, Boyd C. Stevens, Univer-
sity, cashier, announced recently.
The total number of individuals re-
ceiving grants, repayable at the end
of a specified number of years,
reached a peak of 1410, while the
total sum loaned amounted to $163,-
University officials attribute the
increased number of students apply-

Many students were granted two or
three loans to tide them through the
year. This is manifest in the fact
that 2401 loans were granted; almost
two for every student benefited. At
the present time, there are 3,339 such
loans outstanding.
The amount repaid on principal
this year aggregated $136,898.46,
while $10,036.45 was received in in-
terest payments.
Upper classmen, graduate and pro-
fessional students receive preference
in the matter of loans. The only
prerequisite for them is a "C" scho-
lastic average. Freshmen are barred
