HOWEVER University officials
were quick to point out that un-
der present world conditions, any
estimate has to be made with an
eye to revision.
In the past official estimates at
this time of the year proved to
be correct wtihin two or three per
cent, according to University
spokesmen, but no one will claim
that kind of accuracy for this
Gayle C. Wilson, assistant di-
rector of admissions, said that all
indications point to a freshman
class as large as last year's.
"We expect the cuts to come
in the junior and senior classes,"
The fact that no new veteran
students will be enrolled is not ex-
pected to affect the number of
the freshmen matriculations.
The number of veterans who
came to the University for the
first time last fall accounted for
only a small part of the freshman
class, so the death of the GI Bill
will not materially change the size
of this year's class.
But applications for admission
to the University indicate that
there may be a drop in transfer

IF T H E WORLD situation
;doesn't blow up all college plans
for the future, the present enroll-
ment drop is expected to last only
a few years.
Educators believe that many
men now in the armed forces will
head for college once their tour of
duty is up.
About the same time they ex-
pect this to happen, the first of
the "war babies" will be ready
to head for college.
These two factors combined
with the increased capacity of
public high schools and the
growing social recognition of the
Value of college education are ex-
pected to put college enrollment

Fake Bills Multiply
DETROIT- () -The Secret
Service warned yesterday that
counterfeit bills are on the in-
crease in Michigan.
In light of the West Point crib-
bing scandal, colleges across the
country have been taking second
looks at their honor systems, and
here at the University Dean
George G. Brown of the engi-
neering college has nothing but
praise for the 35-year-old en-
gineering honor code.
Although he declined to com-
ment specifically on the West
Point developments, Dean Brown
declared that there was no danger
of a breakdown in the engineer's
code which controls the 2,400 stu-
dents in his unit.

HIPS OFF BY HYPNOSIS:
Psychological Aid May Help
In Reduction of Overweight
By FELICIA BROWNE
From the pleasingly plump to
the outright obese, overweight
people are getting psychological
aid in their attempts to reduce,
although psychiatrists and local
psychology professors have ex-
pressed their doubts as to the ul-
timate worth of the experiments.
The soothing voice of a "mas-
ter hypnotist" is reportedly in-
strumental in removing pounds
from the overweight in Chicago,
while at the same time Fat People
Anonymous groups patterned aft-
er Alcoholics Anonymous have
sprung up all over the country.

IN AN EIGHTH floor office
building, the syrupy tones of Ed-
win L. Baron, hypnotist issue,
commands to a group of fat wo-
Baron, who insists that his
work is purely a "research proj-
ect," reports amazing success and
his patients make varying claims
for the power of hypnosis.
One woman, who lost 16 lbs. in
two weeks, boasted, "I've lost ab-
solutely al ltaste for sweets and
in-between snacks. It's helped
my bronchial asthma too," she
added, "and I sleep nights."
Prof. Roger Heyns, of the psy-
chology department, expressed
lack of faith in such testimonials.
"Any patent medicine in 'the
country can get testimonials even
if it only contains water," he said.
* * *
PROF. HEYNS seemed more fa-
vorably impressed with the idea
of Fat People Anonymous. A
group of this nature where one
can meet and discuss mutual
problems with others will afford
companionship and affection. In
their loneliness, many people turn
to overeating to make up for lack
of attention," he explained.
One demure coed when inter-
viewed yesterday seemed dubious
about the idea of a get-together
plan. "Whenever a bunch of wo-
men meet, whether for bridge or
to discuss their operation, some-
one always starts to pass around
refreshments," she explained.
ever since that time, except for
the brief period of time during
World War II when most of the
students were military personnel.
The system is under the direc-
tion of a student honor committee
which hears cases of alleged
cheating, and hands down a ver-
dict which is submitted to the
faculty for final action.
Dean Brown asserts that the
faculty makes virtually no
changes in the recommenda-
tions of the student committee.
A pledge is written on the blue-
books by the students, saying that
they have received no aid during
the exam, and the professor leaves
the room as soon as test questions
are passed out.
Students are allowed to come
and go greely, and to talk quietly
in the examination room.
"The secret of success of the
system," Dean Brown points out,
"is that it is run entirely by the
Dean Brown maintains that a
proctor system instills wrong mo-
tives in the students, giving them
incentive to see how much they
can get away with.
T H E UNIVERSITY Medical
School also has a student honor
system that has been in effect for
about 25 years.
Officials report that in this "a
strong feeling that each student's
personal reputation is at stake has
been developed over the years."
The proctor system has been
used in other University schools
and colleges, and authorizes re-
port that there have been no stu-
dent moves to institute a general
