and United Press International Foil Lease Wives MASON cltY IOWA FRIDAY MARCH 30 1W2 Plug for junior colleges Trend is to more of them By TERRY FERRER New York Herald Tribune News Service NEW YORK One of every four students who entered col lege last fall went to a two year institution California which during 50 years has developed public jun ior colleges more than any other state plans to add 22 such col leges to its present 69 The New Jersey legislature now has before it a proposal to establish 23 county which would be the first public statesponsored twoyear col leges Ohio agreed for the first time last year to set up public two year colleges and Indiana is considering following suit New York which in 1950 had two public community colleges enrolling 700 fulland parttime students now has 19 in opera tion and four in the planning stage The total enrollment in the 19 this year is more than 42000 In short the twoyear col lege whether itis called jun ior community technical in stitute or extension center is booming The enrollment now in all 678 public and private two year colleges in 49 states Ne vada has none and the Ter ritories is 748619 This repre sents a 17 per cent jump over the 1959 enrollment And for the first time the Senate has passed a bill which would give million over five years in matching grants for building facilities and land to public community colleges The Senate bill totaling over fiveyears for college building aid and scholarships was passed Feb 6 It still must be reconciled with an earlier House version which contains no provision for community col leges or college scholarships If the junior college has grown up in the higher educa tion world it still has its major problems as well as its assets The two are closely tied to gether One of the foremost assets of the twoyear colleges today is that their growing numbers can help to beat the college boom With college enrollments ex pected to double or triple by 1970 the twoyear institutions could siphon off some of the pressure Sen Clifford P Case RNJ a longtime champion of com munity colleges even told the Senate last month that it is hoped that junior colleges will be able to enroll 50 per cent of all students entering college by 1970 A further plus is that through their dual function the twoyear colleges can provide some of the desperately needed tech nicians machinists and elec tricians for the scientific and engineering industries Two year colleges are both transfer preparing the student for the last two years of college and terminal training the nurses technicians and others who may only need two years of higher education But each of these assets has its1problems The social snob bery now surrounding going to college unjustly frowns on the twoyear college as a sec ondbest kind of education Dr Edmund J Gleazer Jr executive director of the Amer ican Association of Junior Col leges was asked what could be done to enhance the attractive ness of the twxyear college There is a glamour in going to a residential college Dr Gleazer conceded which does not cling to a commuters col lege But he added If the two year college is made attractive well over half of the highschool seniors will go to it as they do in California and Florida And many acollege president as well as two year institutions would agree with Abraham Ribicoff Sec retary of Health Education and Welfare who said recently Rapid expansion of twoyear colleges is imperative if Amer ican higher education is to meet increases in enrollment neighbors UOc Paper Conssits Two No 43 n Tax revision i i
