To Increase
Freshman Class
Makes Big Gain
The second 25 percent increase
in freshman enrollment in two
years will bring an anticipated
3,000 new first year students into
the University in September.
With more than 80 percent of
the freshmen class already ad-
mitted, enrollment figures indi-
) cate that roughly 600 miore ap-
plicants than last fall's class of
2,400 will be accepted.
ACCORDING to Gayle C. Wil-
son, assistant director of admis-
sions, the overall enrollment pic-
ture will not increase very much,
however, because of fewer stu-
dents at the upper class levels.
Enrollment in junior and sen-
ior classes is much lower than
the present sophomore and
freshman classes partly as the
result of lower birthrates dur-
ing the years prior to 1932.-
Indications are that there will
be a considerable upswing in theI
enrollment of the engineering col-
lege as more entering men seem to
be taking a greater interest in
this field.
A BREAKDOWN of those appli-
cants admitted so far for the fall
class indicates that the two-to-one
i in state-out state ratio will remain
the same as it has for the last
seven years.
The male-female ratio, how-
ever, indicates ,a decided turn
in favor of men with about
three women to every four men
already admitted to the fall
According to Robert L. Williams,
assistant dean of faculties, the
total University enrollment should
be slightly more than 17,000 next
WILLIAMS explained that the!
current trend toward an increase
a in enrollment began last fall when
the University admitted 500 more
freshmen than the previous year.
M> Williams pointed out that the
total enrollment of all students
enrolled in colleges in Michigan
in 1939-1940 was 52,000 com-
pared with almost twice that
number, 102,000 in the peak
postwar year 1948-1949.
At present there are 87,000 en-
rolled in colleges in the state and
according to Williams this figure
may very well jump to 150,000 by
How this increase in student
population will affect the Uni-
versity enrollment of the future is
almost impossible to say, Williams
"Population trends as well as
social and economic factors
coupled with increased interest in
higher education largely explain
the upward trend in college en-
rollment," Williams said.
Rabbi Cites
World's Needs
"We are living in a very diffi-
cult world, in which faith and hope

are needed," said Rabbi Morton M.
V Berman last night speaking in-'
formally to a group on "Judiasm's
Message for Today."
"We are not living in an age
where man is depraved, but rather
k in a great age, morally and social-
ly, said the Rabbi. It is in this age
that the state of Israel was born.
Before opening a discussion per-
iod, Rabbi Berman said that Jud-
aism's pertinent message to the
world is to bring our wills intoI
conformance with the will of God."s

LANSING - Beating down an
"economy drive" by eight Repub-
lican legislators, the State Senate
yesterday approved $1,320,000 in
capital outlay appropriations for
the University 22 to 9.
Bucking a fierce floor fight the
bill was passed as recommended
by the Senate Finance Committee.
The measure grants the Univer-
sity the full amount promised
earlier for construction.

PENDING House approval later'
this month the bill will provide
the University with funds to be-
gin construction of an automotive
laboratory, a new undergraduate
library, roads and utilities in the
North Campus area and to make
Boiler repairs.
University officials declined
comment on the Senate's pas-
sage of the bill until action is
taken by the lower house.
Stoutly opposing the appropria-
tions bill, eight GOP senators'
contended it was"incomprehen-
sible" that the state should be
planning new construction when
it is running so deeply in the red.
