UK Establishes

Geological Office
A regional field office of the United States Geological Survey is being established at the University
of Kentucky, according to President
H. L. Donovan. The office will be
located in the Administration building, and will have as its primary
purpose the study of coal reserves.
The program is being started in
Leslie County where the work will
be directed primarily to determine
the availability, character, and reserves of coal in that county, which
are important but relatively undeveloped. It will be a detailed study
of surface and underground geology of the county directed toward
other possible resources as well.
It will take about two years. Later
the work will be extended into other
counties of the coal belt.
Working from this office, the
federal survey also is studying the
region bordering Pine Mountain for
information pertinent to oil and
gas development in Kentucky and
adjacent parts of Virginia.
Ralph Wilpolt, a geologist of the
U.S. geological survey with extensive experience in Virginia, Arkansas, New Mexico, and Mexico, will
be in charge of the field office.
The staff at the start will include
three other geologists with a number of assistants. It will be some
months before the program will get
in full swing due to lack of geologic personnel.

Weather Today:

Figures Are Surprise
These figures. Dean Seay said,
came as a surprise to University authorities. The Registrar's office had
predicted a registration of between
7,000 and 7,500 in anticipation of a
slight decrease in both veteran and
new student enrollment.
Dean Seay added that educators
throughout the country were expecting fall enrollments about 10 to 15
per cent below the 1947 peak.
Covington Center Credited
University authorities credited the
establishment of the Northern Extension Center, first
branch school to be set up in Kentucky by an institution of higher
education, as the biggest factor in
the unanticipated increase. The
center, however, accounts for only
two per cent of the expected 10 to 15
per cent drop.
Special Students
The University, Dean Seay pointed
out, has a much larger enrollment
than the figures indicate. More than
1,000. students taking courses by
correspondence and an undetermined number of persons enrolled in
special late afternoon, evening, and
Saturday classes are not included in

Music Convo Held

Tomorrow is the last day to
sign up for Kentuckian pictures.
All members of campus organizations, as well as Juniors and seniors must make their appointments in the Y lounge of the Student Union building. The lounge
will be closed during the noon

no registration at that time.
Charles Whaley, editor, asks
that all fraternities and sororities
get their appointment sheets in
as soon as possible.

Enrollment High Set
For ROTC Classes

A new high in enrollment for
ROTC training was set last wee
with 1420 students entering basic
and advanced classes. The previous record of 1319 students was
set in 1939. Classroom space, equipment, and teaching staff are bring
taxed to meet the needs of the increased enrollment.
According to Col. G. T. Mackenzie, head of the military science
department, the increased enrollment is largely due to the fact that
