Enrollment Expected To Hit
20,000;Vet Number Drops
Early returning students flooded the campus this week, getting
lost in the freshman orientation program but still giving the im-

year's 11,007 to approximately 8,000 and 5,000 of those students will

about the job of getting an education in an orderly and businesslike
way. As Mrs. R. E. Calahan of the Office of Student Affairs com-
mented, "They really seem enthusiastic."
