Entrance Applications To Be Cut
Because of Limited Physical Plant
Discussing enrollment growth at a Union luncheon yesterday,
University President Harlan Hatcher promised, "there will be no new
arbitrary standards of admission" at the University.
Not long ago, President Hatcher had told a faculty gathering,
"The University must necessarily become more selective in its en-
Asked to coordinate these two superfically contradictory policy
statements last night, President Hatcher admitted the University,

Thin Margin
In Senate
publican victory in Kentucky yes-
terday brought the Senate division
for the 85th Congress next year
to just where it was in the 84th:
49 Democrats and 47 Republicans.
By ordinary standards that
would assure continued Democrat-

complicating factors, however gave
Republicans an outside chance at
Late Returns
Late returns from Kentucky in-
dicated Republican Thurston B.
Morton had come through finally
in his seesaw race with Senator
Earle Clements, the assistant Dem-
ocratic floor leader.
This was one more feather in
the cap of the Republicans, al-
ready happy with President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's nine-mil-
lion-vote majority for re-election.
The day's developments also
brought a measure of relief for
Democrats who had been some-
what concerned over whether Sen-
ator-elect Frank Lausche of Ohio,
an independent-minded Democrat,
would go along' with them in the
vote to organize the Senate.
Finish Term
Lausche said at Columbus he
would finish his term at governor,
which ends Jan. 14. That would
seem to mean he did not plan to
be in Washington for the vote at
the opening of Congress on Sen-
ate organization, leaving it up to
the other Democrats to set it up
to their satisfaction..
With Lausche absent, and as-
suming a full representation other-
wise, the vote would be 48 Demo-
crats and 47 Republicans. If Laus-
che did come in and vote with the
Republicans, there would be a 48-
48 tie and Vice President Richard
M. Nixon could break it in favor
of the GOP.
The vote decides which party
gets the committee chairmanships
and the majority strength on each
The virtual end of the Morton-
Clements Senate race just about
wrapped up Tuesday's election,
except for a few undecided House
races and a recount for governor

House Margin
Held Steady
By Democrats
ocrats have captured at least 231
of the 435 seats in the new House
-13 more than needed for con-'
trol--and may add most of the
five remaining undecided seats to
their majority.
The Republicans have won 199;
seats and are leading, by a bare
two votes, in only one of the un-
decided races.
The present House division is'
232 Democrats, 203 Republicans.,
The GOP lost the Missouri sev-;
enth Dist. when late returns yes-;
terday showed that Charles H.
Brown, Democrat, had unseated
the veteran Representative Dewey
Short, senior Republican on the
House Armed Services Committee,.
In a close contest in New Jer-7
sey, Republican Norman Roth was
figured to have won the 13th Dist.

4trary in their admissions policy?
"In effect," conceded President
In another luncheon policy state-
ment he revealed, "The University
must be prepared to grow at an
approximate rate of about 1,500 to
2,000 students each year through
the next decade."
This means the University could
enroll 40,000 by 1965. Previously,
the administration announced it
would reach the 40,000 figure in
1970, through "controlled growth."
Enrollment Increased
Have University enrollment ex-
pectations increased? President
Hatcher said last night he didn't
know the answer "at this time"
and the 1500-2000 figure is "just
a guide."
He further said yesterday the'
University program for the next
decade will include an "emphasis
on undergraduates." This was said
in answer to speculation the Uni-
versity would increasingly function
as a graduate school.
However, last night President
Hatcher admitted the percentage
of graduate students has been ris-
ing in the last decade. Would this
percentage nose upward in the
future and, in. effect, emphasize
the graduate level? "Perhaps a
little," he remarked.
Junior Colleges
He didn't think the influx of
junior and community colleges in
the state would decrease the Uni-
versity's relative undergraduate
However, President Hatcher said
"It would not be economical for
these communities to duplicate our
graduate facilities in law, medi-
cine, and engineering."
Will inadequate student housing
facilities force the University to
trim its enrollment expansion? No,
according to President Hatcher
who remarked, "University con-
cern and emphasis will not be on
roofs over the heads of our stu-
dents, but on educational facilities.
He noted the University was
making every effort to increase
housing capacity, however,
