Unofficial Gargoyle Staff Meets Today

Gargoyle, the one-time official
campus humor magazine, will re-}
turn to campus sometime in No-
vember if plans made at today's
meeting are successful.
The meeting will be held at 4:15
p.m. at 211 S. State street.
Last May the Board in Control

stopped supporting the magazine,
because of student apathy in com-
peting for staff positions and dis-
minishing support from readers
and advertisers.
** * .
IN AN ATTEMPT to win back
student support the Gargoyle will

emphasize campus humor and
short, short stories ranging from
1,000 to 2,000 words.
Gargoyle owes ith chance to re-
turn to campus to financial sup-
port given by alumni, following
an extensive summer campaign.

An expected substantial increase
in the number of students enroll-
ing in university ROTC courses
was reported yesterday by in-
structors in each of the three mili-
tary units.
Drawing the highest number of
new enrollees was the Air Force
branch with an increase of 66 per
cent over last year's enrollment.
The Navy enrolled an additional
20 per cent as allowed by its
quota, and the Army unit reported
a rise of 16 per cent.
* * *
BUT CONTRARY to some ex-
pectations, the increased enroll-
ment was due primarily to a per-
sonal desire for long-range ad-
vancement and benefits, instruc-
tors declared, and not because of
the present military situation in
Korea.
"While the Korean situation
is one of the reasons for the
increase, it isn't the main one,"
explained Lt. Col. Folkey John-
son of the Army ROTC.
"Instead, students are getting

more conscious of the long-range
educational and financial bene-
fits offered in the ROTC pro-
gram, and are voluntarily electing
military courses just like any
other university elective," he said.
* * *
NONE OF THE military science
and tactics instructors believe that
students are using the ROTC pro-
gram as a means of escaping the
draft.
"Enrolling in the ROTC pro-
gram to get a deferment Isn'4
the main reason for the in-
crease, since a deferment is on-
ly for the current academic
year," said Master Sgt. John
Smith, Air Force instructor.
"I don't think a lot of men
would have thought of taking
military courses only to be defer-
red," he continued. "After they
inquire about the program and
come to the conclusion it will
benefit them, they usually enroll
regardless of the draft or mili-
tary situation."
