Editor Announces Milestone Additions Seven new appointments to the Milestone staff have been listed by the editor, A1 Staver. They are Eugene Van Tamelen, art staff; Bunny Goff, Dorothy Weyenberg, Carol Kile and Roger Patterson, literary staff, and Elaine Mensinger and Adrian Bos, photography staff.

In order for this service to continue, we ask the cooperation of students and of parents of the servicemen in seeing that the addresses are correct at all times. We therefore ask that you bring or send the new addresses to the The annual Round Robin Tea college office.

In the absence of the president, Wesley Dykstra, the meeting was opened by Wilbur Brandli, who also led devotions. Prof. Hinkamp spoke on "Daniel." He emphasized the point that today we are apt to worship three gods — a god of liquor, a god of nicotine, and a god of A's. Daniel never bowed down to the idol gods of his day. Can we be a Daniel? The meeting adjourned with the singing of hymns.

Increase Is Noted In Enrollment Dr. Wichers has announced t h a t the enrollment this year shows marked increase. The Senior Class is the smallest with 52 members, the Juniors follow with 60 members, and the Sophomores rank with 65 members. The Freshman class is unusually large this year with 115 new students. The sharp increase necessitated the opening of the Emersonian House as another girls' dormitory. There are 32 girls living a t the Emmy House, 38 a t Van Vleck, and 80 a t Voorhees Hall, totaling 150 campus girls. There are 30 new fellows and approximately 10 live on campus at Zwemer Hall.
