NEED 1500 SPACES ON CAMPUS:
Parking Problem Plagues Car Owners.
tt f. wr y.mn, ..I
By RUN WATTS
A critical slhortage of auto park-
ing spaces surrounding the Uni-
versity area has pushed the park-
ing problem into the limelight for
every local car owner.
University Secretary Herbert G.
Watkins, who is in charge of is-
suing University parking permits,
summed it up by saying, "In the
40 acre campus area, there just.
aren't enough, spaces for every-
one to park near his destination."

students revealed that many find
it necessary to park at least one
half mile from the center of
campus. One student remarked
that on a rainy morning he had
to arrive in the campus area 30
minutes before his class to find
a parking space.
It was estimated by Watkins
and Felix G. Sundquist, who is
in charge of issuing student
driving permits, that approxi-
mately 5,000 students, faculty
and administrative personnel
hold some sort of driving or

The exhibit entitled, "Sport and
Circus," brings together 81 paint-
ings, drawings and prints gather-
ed from museums, art dealers,
and private collectors throughout
the United States. Also included
in the show are several circus
posters, General Tom Thumb's bi-
cycle, and a carrousel horse.
* * *
THE EXHIBITION was assem-
bled by Prof. Jean Paul Slusser,
director of the Museum, who has
long felt that sports enthusiasts
ought to have a look at their
favorite hobby as put down on
canvas by the best artists. The
entire collection is devoted to
sports and the circus.
"In so far as it touches upon
matters of physical strength,
agility and cunning," Prof.
Slusser said, "this exhibition
should appeal particularly to
the thousands of sports-mind-
ed men and women at the Uni-
versity, a group keenly appreci-
ative of good performance."

Students facing possible mili-

as a great opportunity, Dean Ivan
C. Crawford declared yesterday.
Speaking on "Prospects for the
Class of 1954," Crawford told the
22nd annual Principal-Freshman
Conference' that there are certain
benefits which will accrue to those
participating in military training.

THESE BENEFITS were listed

schools and learn skills which will
be of use in later years.
Provost James P. Adams, who
welcomed the 250 principals and
college admission counselors from
160 high schools and junior col-
leges, emphasized the fact that
the University is very interested
in each individual student.
He added that the University
would welcome any suggestion
from the high school representa-
tives as to how this relationship
could be improved.
At another session Dean Erich
A. Walter declared that the Uni-
versity is "a going concern for the
good of the student."
The conference concluded yes-
terday afternoon with talks on the
preparation of high school stu-
dents for entrance into the Uni-
versity, and their problem of ad-
justing to college life.
