"UNPLUG THAT BOTTLENECK!" was the anguished cry of the mobs of students who had to stand on aching dogs waiting in
line under the "Typist" sign in the Woollen Gym registration madhouse this week. Head Cheerleader Joe Chambliss, seen just beyond

Draft Scare Skyrockets
Applications For ROTC
Faced by military service, pos

yesterday that a record number

conversion into office space, the
men's housing situation on cam
pus has become acute with little
relief seen until the completion
of the new million dollar dorm
behind the Monogram Club.
The removal of the huts and
Miller Hall created a shortage of
some .350 beds for incoming fresh
men and transfer students, James
E. Wadsworth, housing adminis
trator, said yesterday. He pointed
out that dormitory space nor
mally used for studying, social
rooms, and several storage rooms
have been pressed into service.
Indicative of the cramped quar
ters are the basements of Stacy,
Alexander, and C Dormitories
which are housing freshmen.
Wadsworth declared the hard
est hit students will be out-of
state students and transfers.

thing; we're hoping for an easing
up during January, but we'll have
to wait and see," the housing of

Wipe Out Reel Pockets
ON THE RIVER FRONT, NEAR SEOUL, Korea, Sept. 20

MacArthur stood atop of ; the
high observation post overlooking
the Han while Lit. Col. Ray Mur

this mroning's crossing.
Below, the winding river and
its bordering rice fields looked
quiet, but the Americans were
busy flushing out Reds.

across the river by 10 a. m. (8

wave of Marines began crossing
the river in waddling amphibious

Puller told MacArthur "the town's

MacArthur then drove down a
narrow rutted road through rice
fields to a point three miles from
Yongrungpo. The front was just
over a small rise directly ahead.
Warplanes wheeled overhead.
Their bombs echoed across the
flat valley, where Koreans placid
ly harvested their rice amid the
turmoil of military columns.
Mortar, artillery and machine
gun fire split the air.
Puller told MacArthur that "one
of my boys got two tanks, then
was killed trying to get a third."
MacArthur shook his head.
"That's too bad," he said.
