Majority Favor U.S. Recent Viet Action Inquiring reporters Jane Riggs and Janet Sarbey found a majority of persons polled at random on campus are in favor of recently announced United States policy in regard to Vietnam.

Nation's Admissions Clamor Hits Kent; Housing Pinch Felt Most America's 1947 bumper baby crop—3.7 million —has been setting enrollment records with monotonous regularity throughout grade and high school. This year, the teenagers are banging on the college door in earnest! Record numbers of students, coupled with an increasing percentage of college-bound high school graduates, are causing kingsize headaches for harried admissions officers across the nation. Ohio's Board of Regents, for instance, expects 265,000 in the state's colleges and universities. This compares with 241,165 last year. Kent State University is looking for a campus enrollment ranging from 14,370 to 14,870, nine to 11 per cent higher than a year ago. Kent's overall enrollment, including students in its 13 northeastern Ohio academic centers, will top the 21,000 mark. Exact enrollment figures for September are only educated guesstimates because of an acute campus housing shortage, uncertain impact of the new Clevelan...
