4 GUBELEY TIHIIUNE Wednesday, Uec..M, 1055 Ut Yuletide Cards By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK fl -- Year attcr year Hugo 'Gernsback probably puts out the most unusual Christ-, mas cards in America. Each year they contain predictions by Gcrnsback, publisher of the magazine "Radio-Electronics," on, how life will be lived in the future. Some years his forecasts are pretty eerie. This year they arc weirder than weird. If Gernsback is even half-right (and he is convinced lime will prove him altogether right), the average man will probably be glad ho lives in. the present--and that the next century will be up to posterity to endure. Take the matter of transportation. Glancing into his crystal ball, Dr. Gernsback sees the "airmobile" as'the only final answer to today's traffic problem. Motorists will zoom through the skies in s m a l l . gravity-resistant cars propelled by compressed air. Back scat drivers will bo really out-of-date, because-- . ; ' ' "All-around radar will make col-. Jisions in Ihe air almost an impos. tibilily." Are you worried about where you will be buried: Gernsback is. He fears the earth soo'n will be loo crowded for cemeteries. But he h a s , a n answer-- space burials.

Gernsback -sees (his as the most practical way a man can "Go to heaven." t Take the question of electronic brains. Gernsback doubts science will be able any time soon to come up with a machine that will actually do · its own thinking. His solution: You lake a brilliant .iving human brain, suply it with a food solution that wjll keep it aermanently alive, then wire il to he gigantic electronic machines, and it will do (he thinking for them. These human "electron icizctl iirains," he feels, will be able to write great hooks and plays, create needed new inventions -- and never wear out. The Usk here, of course, is. how to get the right brains. Gernsback (eels sure, how 1 ever, that some outstanding men will be glad to contribute their brains -- before death -- to bcne fit mankind. Any volunteers? Like most people, Gernsback has,pondered the mystery of sex, and'has decided: "Sex i s , a complex electrical phenomenon." Well, it certainly is complex, sometimes it does produce sparks and there is no doubt it is quite a phenomenon. Gernsback feels that as science learns more about six it will produce the "elcctromicro-perccptor" or sex measurer. By undergoing tests with this machine, couples supposedly will be able (o determine whether they will he coin- latible in marriage, at least In ,crms. of physicnl responses.

Dr. Raymond Walters, president omcriuis ot the University of Cincinnati, made his report in his 30th annual statistical study for School and Society, an educational journal. Figures from 886 approved uni- vcrsilies and four-year colleges throughout the U. S. and its territories show 1,612,225 fulllimc students, an increase of 9 per cent over last fall. -The 25 colleges not reporting or reporting too late were chiefly small institutions, Dr. Wat tcrs said. "Recruits for the depleted ranks of school teaching arc on the way in encouraging numbers, especially in regard to men," l)r, Wallers said. He put (lie teachers' increase this year at 13.2 per cent. However, even this increase falls "far short of supplying enough .competent teachers and administrators adequately to handle the nation's great host of children who will be citi: zens of tomorrow." Increased Attendance in other fields, he observed, respond "to increasing demands for tr.iiiicd personnel in an industrialized nation." Engineering freshmen, for example, are 33.2 icr cent more numcr* ous than .last year. Liberal arts freshmen enrollments "are up 7.7 per cent. The 25 schools with the largest fulitime enrollments arc, according, to Dr. .Walters: -California (all campuses.) 38,534, Slate University of New York (Albany) 2-1,631; Minnesota 23,393; Texas 23,328; Illinois 21,880;' University of Michigan 20,801; Ohio Stale 13,590; Wisconsin 15,465; Michigan Stale 15,277; Pennsylvania Stato 14,054.

Next day, the daughter of. a public-school principal reported, to the teacher she was having .difficulty with the assignment, couldn't m a k e it fit as lo wordagc. "You have a little leeway,'.' the leacher reminded, "1 know," (he girl said. "When i first wrote it, I had exactly 100 words. But after daddy got through typing, il had 149 words." Wyoming Stockmen Meel in Cheyenne. CHEYENNE «! -- More than 100 members of the executive committee of Ihe Wyoming Stockgrowers Assn. gathered here Tuesday \for an annual winter meeting. Members heard a report on beef promotion carried on by the Na- lional Beef Counci.. The committee is considering the advisability of establishing a council in Wyoming. ; President Norman Barlow, slate senator from Sublettc county, said that among resolutions drafted for 24c CHEESE ' BURGERS the commillce's consideration was one on the so-called soil bank plan. ·The plan call: for a limitation ol crop production through a federal subsidy lo farmers.
