Will Carolina's Enrollment Climb Back?
Bar graph shows how enrollment at the University this year compares with that in 1950, 51, 52,
53,. and 54. The 6,684 students enrolled in 1950, said Director of Central Records Ed Lanier, represents
the "tail end" of the, boom in post-war students. University officials have kept their eyes on the rising
enrollment. One, President Gordon Gray, has said hs feels "we should raise our scholastic admissions
requirements gradually and reasonably" due in part to the steady increase.

Fowler Says Promises
After having served almost two
months as president of the student

One of the most important cam

"We have set up," said Fowler,
"a five-man traffic committee
headed by Layton McCurdy to reg

committee has persuaded the Trus
tee Visiting Committee to allow
students to continue bringing their
cars to the University, he said.
