the 195051 school year President Virgil MHancher said Thursday Current enrollment at S U L is 7362 compared with 9125 last fall and a record fall enrollment of 10886 in 1948 The decline which is common to nearly all higher educational institutions is caused chiefly by tapering off of the GI education program and by mQir tary and defense factors AP Query Dr Hancher in response to an Associated Press inquiry said while there has been reduction in S U Is academiej staff additional appointlrnents have been necessary incertain areas of instruction This is particularly true in the college of medicine in which the university has increased the num ber of students in order to complj with the mandate of the 53rd gen eral assembly said This year for example there are 34 more medical students than we had las year Dr Hancher also said that in GlobeGazette photos by Uusser RECORD ATTENDANCE record attendance for a single attraction at Roose velt fieldhouse was set Wednesday afternoon and

this fabulous cowboys horses And some got their chance a thrill to remember the rest of their lives flremendous in 7 Two Shows at Reldhouse some fields such as public health it is exceedingly difficult to find qualified professors The S F L president in re sponse to a question about admin istration of the draft deferment program for qualified students said that the draft boards of Iowa appear to understand its purposes Occasionally he said there are cases in which a local draft board has felt it necessary to give less weight to the qualification examinations than have other boards Of course the local boards are in a difficult position View In the long view he said the role of the university must be that of leadership in the develop ment of our human resources to limits of its capacity whether its capacity is to be applied to wag Ing war or building peace War hot or cold does no more than impair and delay the realiza tion of the real human goals for which American universities strive as the elimination of war itself he said Dr Hancher stressed that edu cational opportunity must be pro vided lor all qualified young peo pie because unless we strive to train all who are capable we waste our greatest source for win ning wars or assuring peace i By CARL WRIGHT Gene Autry his famed horse Champion and Little Champ and lis entire troupe of performers nduding the

tremendous Born to the saddle an authentic son of the cow country of Oklahoma he fires the imagination of youth and grownups alike for he can actually do the things he is de picted as doing At the topmost rung of the lad der of success he has the same friendly warm genuine person ality he showed thatiright 25 years ago when the late Will Rogers walked into a whistle stop on the Frisco railroad to send a telegram and found Gene strum ming a guitar and singing a song of thewest And Wednesday night under the spotlight at Roosevelt fieldhouse Autry sang some of those same songs which have become folk songs of America Back in Saddle In his medley of songs he in cluded Back In the Saddle Again South of the Border You Are My Sunshine Ru dolph the Rednosed Reindeer and others And when Autry rode his be loved horse Champion his pal in song and story of the saga of the west the youngsters who made up more than half the rowd at each showing were in theheights of ecstasy But this original singing cow joy had one more trick in the bog tor the climax of his show Little Shamp did tricks too When Little hamp tickled the belly of old 2hamp the fieldhouse has never heard anything like the squeals of youngsters Want to Touch Youngsters even crowded to the stage to get to touch Little Champs nose Theres nothing juite like a cowboy and his horse to the youngster of 8 Next to Autry the small fry liked Smiley the old frog next best With his imitations of Hies outboard motors auto races anc airplanes Smiley outdid himself at being one of the kids With the Cass County Boys and the audience joining in he also sang Home Town and My L a z y Day to tremendous ap plause No Turning Dial try is on program and the kids are listening But there were many other high spots on the
