CINCINNATI, Dec. 26.—An esti mated postwar flow of 650,000 vet erans to college campuses for Fed erally-financed studies ’’represents the chief hope of American colleges and universities for rescue from the present dearth of men students,” Dr. Raymond Walters, nationally-recog nized college statistician has re ported. Dr. Walters’ comment was con tained in his 25th annual survey for School and Society, education weekly. As of November 1, Dr. Walters said, there were 608,750 full-time students and a grand total of 925, 084, including summer and part time students, in 679 approved in stitutions. Despite good-sized fresh man classes, new students currently in these schools were from 50 to 94 per cent below figures of 1939, last normal peacetime year. 593.271 Are Enrolled. As of November 1, among institu tions which reported to Dr. Walters both this year and last, 648 had 593.271 full-time civilian and Army and Navy students, against 454,759 full-time civilian and approximately 363,000 in Army and Navy units in November, 1943. For 646 institutions reporting grand-total figures for both years, there were 893,883 this fall and 1.099,043 in 1943. Slightly more than 60 per cent of the current collegiate population are women. In 56 publicly controlled universities, 58.4 per cent of the full time students are women; in 50 pri vately controlled universities, 53.2 per cent are men; in 142 independent arts and sciences colleges. 74.0 per cent are women; in 52 independent technological institutions. 64.9 per cent are men, and in 92 independent teachers’ colleges, 75.7 per cent are women. California, with 15,261 full-time students, continues as the country’s largest university in this classifica tion, and New York University, with a grand total of 24,722, continues as largest in this group. Columbia Uni versity, %,'ith 12.039 full-time and 21.979 grand total, is. second largest in both classifications. Clark Comments in Report. A large section of Dr. Walters' report is given over to comments, as to prospects for returning vet erans, by Omar W. Clark, assistant administrator of the Veterans’ Ad ministration, Washington. The peak load for colleges and universities will probably come a year and a year and a half after Germany’s and Japan’s defeats, Mr. Clark believes, in warning that vet erans will not arrive on college cam puses in a rush, but will be distrib uted over several years. Approximately 2,400 disabled vet erans are currently studying in col leges and universities. Support the Sixth War Loan drive “Like a Mighty Army" Over the Top—94 Million.

At many places only 50 yards separates the Canadian lines from the German, and a considerable amount of talk as well as fire power trickles across the open ground be tween. The rise in German morale since last Sunday has been noticeable on this front. Hitler’s troops have lost something of the sullen atti tude with which they used to reply to Canadian jibes across no man's land. Now they shout back situa tion reports about Von Rundstedt’s offensive and even intersperse these calls with accordion music played by a character who has come to be known to the Canadians as Fritz I the Fiddler. All this is done strictly on an amateur basis, there being no regu- j lar propaganda setup in these front line slit trenches. It all began weeks ago when the Canadians took over this sector and discovered that shouted conversation with the Ger mans was one way of passing away the dull hours. At first the Ger mans had only the stock commen tary on the Canadian Jibes, and this was the plaintivq, query: "Why don’t you surrender?” This elicited from the tough Canadians replies which are largely unprintable. Now the Germans have a talking point in Von Rundstedt’s offensive, and they are embellishing this with grandiose remarks about being in Paris for the new year. Now the Canadian replies are even less printable than they used to be. When the Canadians have brought the conversation to its natural end with a few well-chosen remarks such as only a tough longshoreman would understand, Fritz the Fiddler takes up the slack with an accordion solo and this often is followed by an exchange of hand grenades. The other day a German voice shouted, “Canadians, did you ever hear of Von Rundatedt?" A reply came quickly. “Did you ever hear of Lefty Gomez?” a Canadian called out and let fly with a hand grenade. It is not known whether a strike was recorded, but Fritz the Fiddler's accordion wheezed perceptibly there after. 1 COLLEGE INN I perfectly cooked & 1 and flavored I college Inn Boned \ 1 Chicken is ALL chic «n I meat from specially * 1 i^cted government I chSen-Eachglassjari* 1 tightly packed with per I Sly Moked, tender, 1 feCl yi»«t til chicken I succulent.^ to chill ■ pieat ;nclude in I and serve or mem* I a tempting meai.^^_ b HUUI MW HH PMItCTt e«.
