His contacts on campus include those with administrative officers, members of the faculty, students, and parents. In all of these contacts, he must be in a position to speak with authority and must command the respect of all. "The registrar and admissions officer cannot be held in a lesser position to that occupied by the deans. He must work with them at their level. For all of these reasons, it seems wise to recommend that the position of registrar be expanded in title and responsibility. I am, therefore, recommending that, effective Oct. 19, the position of dean of admissions unci registrar be established. The person who is currently so capably and eminently filling the position of registrar would become the person to hold the title of dean of admissions and registrar. Dr. Robert L. Mills is a man of great ability and is one that we wish to hold. In my opinion no other individual could be found who would be able to serve so well in this newly recommended position." taking courses for college credit and those who are taking non-cre- dit courses.
