THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Of 'U' Loans
By VA Check 0elay
Of the $31,626 in loans extended
to students by the University during
the first third of this semester, more
than two-thirds were approved to
veterans, University Cashier Gordon
B. Jory said yesterday.
The $31,626 total was divided
among 383 recipients. Most were
short-term, non-interest grants to
veterans whose government subsis-
tance payments have been delayed.
These were made from a special Uni-
versity loan fund set up last year
to aid inconvenienced veterans.
Three Per Cent Interest
Other loans have been made from
funds established by private endow-
ments. These entail interest pay-
ments of three per cent, unless oth-
erwise stipulated by the donor. Out-
standing loans of this sort amounted
to $140,514.95 at the end of the 1945-
46 academic year.
University loan funds, including
outstanding grants, now total $754,-
384.90. The largest of these is the
Brosseau Foundation Loan Fund, an
endowment of $133,000 established
mSince its inception in 1897, the
Student Loans System has admini-
stered $2,360,766 in temporary aid
for students. Less than 1.2 per cent
loss has been incurred on the loan
turnover during that period. Losses
resulted chiefly from the deaths of
students before their loans were paid.
Although no records were immed-
iately available, Jory said that he
believed demands on loan funds were
heavier last year than previously. He
attributed this chiefly to the influx
of veterans, and the consequent
granting of many short-term tide-
Regular loans are granted on the
approval of a committee comprised
of Jory, Dean Joseph Bursley and
University Secretary Herbert Wat-
kins. Loans for women are consid-
ered by the committee only upon the
recommendation of the Dean of Wo-
Any one applicant can receive a
maximum of $400 in University loans,
not more than $200 of which is
granted in one year. Loans, or first
payments in special cases, are due
not later than six months after grad-
uation. They are usually made on
notes in the names of recipients, al-
though the loan committee may re-
quirer an endorser or collateral.
Need for Foresters
Forecast in Ontario
Many trained foresters will soon
be in demand by both the Ontario
government and the pulp and timber
companies in making surveys of for-
est exploitation, Prof. Donald M.
Matthews, of the School of Forestry
and Conservation, said yesterday at
the meeting of the Forestry Club.
These surveys include aerial map-
ping and timber cruising, he said, in
a description of his work last sum-
mer as consultant for the Ontario
Department of Lands and Forests.
The department is attempting to sta-
bilize forest exploitation for full pro-
duction and sustained yield by pulp
and timber companies which are en-
abled by small rental payments to
reserve large areas of crown lands
for their own use.

Peak Enrollment, Crowded Dorms, Text Shortage Tax Library Facilities
By BOB WHITE
A campus-full of serious students,
the condition of severely limited
"home" study space, and the present
text book shortage have combined to
form a first class problem in library
Officials of the General Library
point out that more than half of to-
day's unprecedented enrollment of
18,153 are veterans acknowledged to
be more intent on learning than any
group of pre-war students. This,
they say, is one reason why six cam-
pus reading rooms, three study halls,
and 20 individual libraries are being
taxed to the limit.
The inability of many students to
obtain necessary textbooks has
brought about the opening for gen-
eral use of small library collections
previously reserved for the use of
needy students. And the difficulty
of studying in crowded houses and
dorms has sent still more students
to campus study halls.
Although many library divisions
are operating on greatly expanded
schedules, several of them remaining
open for the first time during the
noon hour, library officials view the
future pessimistically. Conditions are
certain to get still worse, they say,
as the final examination rush is ap-
