Navy Enrolls 509 Students
For Program's Final Semester
Five hundred-nine students are en-
rolled in the final semester of the
University Navy program, which was
established here in July, 1943, Capt.
Woodson Michaux, commandant of
the unit, revealed yesterday.
Of that number 365 are members of
the NROTC; 101 are Marines, and 43
are V-12 engineers. The lower en-
rollment, Capt Michaux explained,
is a result of the progressive liquida-

decorations. E n o r m o u s flowers
throughout the room and vivid swags
of chartreuse and fuschia bearing
fraternity and house crests will com-
plete the extravagant decorations.
Booths will surround the dance-
floor, providing a place.for conversa-
tion and meeting friends. Approxi-
mately 35 men should combine to
sponsor a booth, and booth-sharing
preference may be given. Any organ-
ized group who has not yet contract-
ed to sponsor a booth should contact
Collee Ide, booth chairman, at 2-2569
There is no charge for booths and
it is hoped that all organized houses
will arrange to sponsor a booth to
relieve the congestion of the dance
floor and lobby. Furniture and floor
lamps for booths must be furnished
by the house, and should be in the
I. M. Building by noon Friday and
removed by noon Saturday.
Unique programs and the special
edition of the Daily, J-Hop Extra, will
be distributed as favors at the gala
Any organized group which has
not yet contracted to sponsor a booth
for J-Hop should contact Collee Ide
at 2-2569 before Thursday.
Hop. Featuring humor, cartoons, sa-
tire on the Hop itself and numerous
other stories, the Extra will be distrib-
uted free of charge at the dance. The
second edition of the Extra Saturday
will carry the names of every woman
who attended the Hop, as well as
pictures taken at the dance.
A refreshment bar and special
background for individual dance pic-
tures will be set up in one of the small
gyms, in order to allow more room
for dancing in the ballroom.
Women have been granted 2:30
a: in. permisssion for the event, and
Navy personnel, 3 a. m. permission.
Scheduled from 10 p. m. to 2 a. in.,
Friday at the I. M. Building, it is
expected that over 2,000 students will
attend the Hop.
In accordance with a campus tradi-
tion, no corsages should be worn.

tion of the V-12 program since V-J
Highest enrollment total was 1,348,
which included three different aca-
demic programs: V-12 students who
were enrolled in a block program con-
sisting largely of technical subjects
and who were sent to midshipmen's
schools for indoctrination before
commissioning; V-12 Marines who
were snt to basic training school at
Quantico before commissioning, and
NROTC students who took thirty
hours of Naval Science subjects and
were commissioned at graduation. A
total of 1,338 have been graduated
from the local V-12 program.
Fall Program Planned
The Navy peacetime NROTC will
begin in the fall term, and the pas-
sage of a bill currently before Con-
gress making provisions for this pro-
gram is anticipated by the Navy, he
reported. This proposal provides that
any person who is now a member of
the NROTC and who will not be over
25 on July in the year in which he is
sligible for commissioning may en-
roll. It is the Navy's intention, Capt.
Michaux said, that an adequate re-
seive of well-educated and well-
rained officers be maintained in the
svent of another national emergency.
Of the 100,000 Naval officers active in
World War II, 6,000 were NROTC of-
ficers who responded to the emer-
"The housing situation is very
acute not only for veteran University
tudents but especially for veterans
planning to live in Ann Arbo," com-
nented Dean Wells I. Bennett of the
^oIlege of Architecture and Design,
at a recent forum on housing at the-
As the principal speaker in the last
,f three forums on housing sponsored
'y the Citizens' Committee on Hous-
ng in Ann Arbor, Dean Bennett spoke
^n the Wagner-Ellender-Taft bill,
better known as the "long term" bill,
which has been in the committee
tage in the Senate.
Dean Bennett considered the hous-
ing shortage in Ann Arbor similar and
is great as those found in small towns
and cities alike throughout the coun-
try. "In addition," he said, "Ann
Arbor had a serious housing shortage
:ven before the war." Plans to allevi-
ite this, such as the remodeling of
mouses already existing, he added, had
been pretty well worked out prior to
the return of the large number of
"What many people don't seem
to realize," Dean Bennett empha-
sized, "is the fact that Ann Arbor's
housing problem concerns two groups:
students on campus who are veterans
and also veterans who are returning
to live in Ann Arbor or who intend to
2ome here to live."
"The College of Engineering, with
2,286 students registered, has the
largest enrollment of undergraduate
;tudents it has ever had," Dean Ivan
C. Crawford of the College of Engi-
neering announced yesterday.
Seventy per cent of the students
enrolled in the engineering college
are veterans. A total of 27.4 per cent
of all the veterans now registered in
the University are enrolled in the en-
gineering college. Veteran enroll-
ment in the engineering college has
morerthan tripled since last fall when
490 returned servicemen registered
as compared to the 1,593 veterans now

Gargoyle's Low Humor Supply

The Gargoyle staff, faced with the
possibility of running a quarto of
blank pages in its April issue, has
become rather perturbed about the
dearth of copy now on nand.
"I've never seen anything like it,"
Joe Walker, Garg general manager,
observed, paging through the con-
tents of the copy box. "In fact,
there's nothing like it to be seen.
Nothing, that is." He spoke in the

produced reams of readable copy. The
art staff, therefore, is doing nothing.
At a conservative estimate, there

staff. "There should be more,"
Walker observed, fidgeting with his
