Jump of 164 Results
In Schedule Problem
At the opening of classes for the
1947 spring semester, a modest in-
crease of 164 over the fall figures
set another record in University
The enrollment figure stood at
18,289 when classes started yes-
terday. Though final fall regis-
tration totaled 18,848, at a com-
parable time in the fall, just
before the opening of classes, the
figure was 18,125. The figures
greatly exceed official estimates
made last semester, which antici-
pated as ,much as a 2,000 student
decrease in enrollment for spring.
One year ago, the total regis-
tration. was 13,543.
Veterans Predominate
The 11,300 veterans registered
for this semester comprise almost
62 per cent of the student body
and bring the number of indi-
vidual veterans of World War H
who have attended the niversity
to 17,345.
Facing still another increase in
the number of students attending
their classes, the main problems
departmentsheads reported were
lack of space and time to hold
classes, rather than a faculty
shortage. Texts were said to be
scarce for some classes.
More the Merrier
Final figures on the enrollment
picture of individual colleges were
not available, but a sampling of
various departments showed little
fear in handling the slight in-
crease in students.
The physics department report-
ed a Jump from 1,225 to 1,380 in
its beginning courses but said that
as long as the students wanted
course work they would be able
to handle them. However, Prof.
Ernest F. Barker, chairman of the
department, said that they had
had to turn away doctorate can-
Prof. C h e t e r S. Schoepfie,
chairman of the chemistry depart-
ment, said that they were not
facing. any serious--problems ex-
cept for having to set up a few
evening courses in organic chem-
istry and quantitative analysis.
Psychology Gains 400
Prof. D. G. Marquis, head of the
psychology department, reported
an all-department increase of 400
people. It was necessary to close
the course in interpersonal rela-
tions about half way through reg-
istration when its enrollment
reached 350, he said.
The greatest problem facing the
engineering college at the begin-
ning of the term is an acute short-
age of di'afting room space, ac-
cording to Dean Ivan C. Crawford.
He did not anticipate much re-
lief from the crowded conditions
there until the addition to the
East Engineering Building is com-
pleted for the fall term.

.PARIS, Feb. 10--The Allies signed peace treaties today with Italy

The Italian accord, which strips that country of her colonies and

2,85" Men Housed at Willow
A general survey of the housing
situation shows that approximately
1,500 single men are being housed
in Willow Run dormitories and an
estimated 1,350 married couples.
The Office of Student Affairs em-
phasized that housing accommo-
dations for single men are still
available in the village.
In addition to those students
housed at Willow Run, some stu-
dents were placed in town as
well. Male Michigan freshmen who
came directly from high school
were housed predominantly in the
residence halls. Some freshman
women were also housed in resi-
dence halls.
Non-Nurses Live at Couzens
The Dean of Women's Office an-
nounced that the Nursing School
had made 29 places available in
Couzens Hall for undergraduate
non-nursing students. Provision
has been made for these students
to eat at Mosher-Jordan since
Couzens Hall does not operate
dining room facilities.
At present, 91 women students
are being housed at Willow Run.
The University terrace apart-,
ment house project houses 176
couples at present and has a long

waiting list. The veterans' trailer
housing provides accommodations
for 74 couples.

Francis C. Shiel, director of dor-
mitories, indicated that it would
be "necessary to continue trailers
