CJOSS=COIJNTRYCAMPUS:
iMore Extensum Courses'
Predicted by Dr Fisher
By JOSEPIl iH. KARSINER
State Universities of the future will teach many times the number
of students who inhabit their campuses.
Dr. Charles A. Fisher, director of the University's Extension Service,
said yesterday that he wouldn't be amazed to see the day when the ratio
of off-campus to on-campus students would run as high as 10 to one.
Dr. Fisher and his assistant, Everett J. Soop pointed to the fact that

Volunteer Refugees
Unhappy on Rongerick
By The Associated Press
RONGERIK (MARSHALL IS-
LANDS) May 4-The most tragic
people in the Pacific today are the
natives of Bikini who voluntarily quit
their atoll for the atomic bomb test.
The are discontented on Rongerik
and there is a grrowing suspicion this
is not solely homesickness. In a short
time, they have learned to depend
heavily on outside help-on the white
man's food, clothing and methods of
getting things done.
Natives Too Dependent
Commodore Ben I. Wyatt, com-
mander of Kwajalein Naval Base, ias
worried about the possibility of the
natives becoming too dependent on
Americans for help.
"You must remain as independent
as you were before we came," he told
them.
"We will help you in every way we
can but you must not depend on us
to do everything for you. The over-
all job you have done is fine but
you must work harder."
King Juda admits his men have
been fishing for food only once a
week since they came to Rongerik
but said they have been busy building
houses, leaving little time to go to
sea in outrigger canoes. Most of the
native food has come from boxes
of K and C rations given by the
Navy to help along until the nal ives
are settled.
Navy Supplies Homes
The Navy has provided flooring
and frames for the houses. All roofs
have been thatched with pandannas
leaves, replacing Navy-supplied tent-
age, but much work remains in
thatching the sides of the houses.
King Juda promised the houses
would be completely thatched in two
weeks.
While the men -talked with the
white visitors, the women sat cross-
legged in their homes.

WEEKLY SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED:

"Is Man Self-sufficient?", "Is His-
toric Christianity Outdated?" and
