Walter will remain." - The announcement was made informally at a meeting of school trustees ii. the absence of a report which was scheduled but not received from a five-man committee named to investigate dissension in the college.

Faculty protests over the money and a campus speech by Moseley were followed by several firings and student demands that President Walter be replaced. Although A. T. Kline, of Toccoa, president of the board of trustees, said the school still accepts $500 a month from the foundation, ether members expressed "strong hopes" that the school may yet function without the money, which the "sick" workers are members of local 540, truck drivers and helpers union (AFL). represents about 20 percent of its income. George Armstrong, head of the Texas Educational Foundation, was rebuffed by Jefferson Military College in Mississippi when he offered the college a $18,000,000 endowment on a promise to teach superiority of the white Anglo- Saxon. Dr. Walter has said that Armstrong's grant to Piedmont College was made with "no strings attached.

Johnny Mantz, world-famous race driver, who's driven just about v ; every kind of car ever made and won many of racing's top honors, has this to say about his Nash Ambassador: "I chose a Nash Ambassador for personal and stock-car racing use because I firmly believe Airflyte Construction and handling ease make it the safest car on the highway. Speed and performance? I proved that when I drove an Ambassador 102.46 m.p.h. over El Mirage Dry Lake, Its Jetfire Engine is one of the finest ever put into any car!

Van Tool ENGINEERS CHECK SIGNAL A test pattern, giving televiewers throughout the South a preview of WSB-TV's covering power when it moves to Channel 2, the giant new tower with power of 50,000 watts, will be given Wednesday. WSB-TV moves to its new facilities and the new channel Sunday. The test pattern will bear the call letters WCON-TV which went off the air following the merger of The Journal and Constitution. Beginning Sunday, however, the call letters will be WSB-TV. Engineers inspecting the test pattern at the base of the tall tower are W. E. Gentry, William W. Hilbert, Bob Holbrook and C. F. Daugherty. WSB-TV Continued From Pare 1 combination of maximum power, the new 1,062-foot tower and Channel 2. A test pattern one formerly used by WCON-TV before it left the air was shown Tuesday be ginning at 5:35 p. m. It will be shown on Channel Z beginning at 9:30 a. m. Wednesday. This pat tern will be on Channel 2 until midnight. It will be on again at he same time Thursday and Fri day.", Th pattern will b telecast to enable televiewers in remote sections to test reception of the greatly expanded facilities which will be offered by WSB-TV when it begins its regular program sched ule Sunday morning on Channel 2. Leonard Remsch, Director of all Cox -radio and television properties, asked that fans in longdistance communities write WSB-TV giving details about quality of reception. Engineers say the station Is two years ahead of the industry be cause of (1) the giant tower, the largest television structure in the world, (2) its power, which is as great as any station in the world. (3) its new "high gam" antenna and (4) certain engineering advantages of Channel 2. Thousands of out-of -city view ers and many Atlantans twill get their first glimpse of the new tower Saturday when WSB-TV, which operates on channel 8 until Sunday, will present a special pro gram from the tall tower. One TV camera will be hoisted to the 800-foot level to give viewers an idea of what Atlanta looks like from this point, while another camera will be stationed on the ground to depict the scene at the transmitter. This program will be on Channel 8 at 12 noon. ' The same call letters WSB-TV will be used after the switch to the powerful new facilities, said John Outler, General Manager of WSB and WSB-TV. "We will launch the new operation Sunday with a special program in which various dignitaries of the press and city government will participate," he added. Details of this inaugural program will be announced later. Atlanta's third station WLTV will begin operations on Channel 8 Sunday, offering a complete program of variety, dramatic and Kiddie programs. WLTV is owned and operated by a group of prominent Atlanta businessmen. It will go on the air at approximately 3 p. m. Sunday, Georgia Colleges Solvent Despite Drop in Students Georgia universities and colleges, sharing to a slight degree nationwide drop in enrollment at institutions of higher learning, are far from facing a financial crisis. . m' - j V ((mfh fl DKAflU Reassuring reports came Tues day from college registrars over the State and from a spokesman for the. State Board of Regents. Dr. Harmon W. Caldwell, chancellor of the Board of Regents, University System of Georgia, ex plained: "We anticipated when we prepared budgets for the school year now beginning that enrollment would be less than in 1950-51. So far, registration has proved to be in line with our expectations. That budgetary planning, plus increased aid from the State, has put us in good shape for the year." EXPECTED DROPS OFFSET Officials of colleges and universities in the Atlanta area said an originally expected decline in enrollment here is being offset by several factors, including Georgia Tech's co-op plan, expansion of facilities at the Atlanta Division, University of Georgia," and new building at Emory University. At Georgia Tech, where enroll ment to date is 3,600 students, as compared with 4,180 last year, spokesman declared the drop was actually a "welcome breather. "Every college and university in ueorgia foresees an unprece dented enlargement of - their stu dent bodies within a few years," the official said, "and any intervening 'slump period' will be advantageous -in gearing for the coming upswing." He said enrollment over the na tion is expected to hit a new high by 1960. The current decline is at tributed to the lower birth-rate of depression years and to "peter ing out" of Gl Bill students. MORE GI STUDENTS Most college spokesmen in the area expect Korean War veterans to be granted such GI rights in the future, with a resultant upswing in veterans on their campuses. Emory University reported five per cent drop in enrollment this year, with 3,300 students expected before final wind-up of registration. Its freshman class was hardest hit, but the reduction here is mitigated by increased en rollment in schools of nursing. theology, and graduate work. Registrar I. E. Brook said reac tivation of the Air ROTC unit at Emory has also helped to offset an expected more severe drop in enrollment. Brook said Emory's enrollment is affected this year because 60 per cent of Georgia's high schools are changing this year from 11-grade to 12-grade schools. Under the new plan, stu dents who might have enrolled in college this fall are remaining in high school to complete the 12th grade. The Atlanta Division, Univer sity of Georgia, expects its 1951-52 enrollment, not yet completed, to equal last year's 4,000 students. Addition of more facilities proh ably accounts for the sustained enrollment, a spokesman ex plained. . SHORTER'S DECLINE SLIGHT Dr. Charles W. Burts, president of Shorter College, said Shorter anticipated a "slight decline" from last year's enrollment of 200 regular students and 100 "special' students. Dr. Burts said the college's en roumeni "was certainly not ex pected to drop below 10 per cent and added, "we are not facing any crisis. Enrollment at Agnes Scott Col lege here which "always resists expansion of its enrollment, care fully selected academically from a large number of applicants for admission" totals 455 to date, as compared with last year's enroll ment of 468. The Agnes Scott freshman class is larger than usual with 147 students as compared with last year's 125 students. Emory University spokesmen reported Emory s increased tuition was "balanced by rising costs of operation." No institutions, however, expressed alarm over finances. , I. Harold Saaeofi, secretary of the Georgia Education Association, told a luncheon club here last week that Georgia's three percent sales tax had resulted in "increas ing 'the budget of the University System by 100 per cent." Gaitskell ' Fears Arms Insufficient By RAYMOND DANIELL New York Timet New Service, Soecial to The Atlanta Constitution LONDON, Sept. 25 Reporting on the North Atlantic treaty con ference at Ottawa. Hugh Gaits kell, Chancellor of the Exchequer, who has been represented in the British press as - having swung partly around to Aneurin Bevan's position that the rearmament drive should be slowed down, declared Tuesday that the real issue trou bling everybody was whether the present defense program would provide the military forces and equipment that the experts regard as essential to security. Britain, he made clear, is still hoping for some American help at least in the form of making available substantial quantities of raw materials, steel and machine tools and perhaps, if she is found to be carrying an unfair share of the burden, some cash as well. There is no question, he insisted, of Britain's failing to carry out her present commitments. He added: "But I am bound to say I can not see how we in the United Kingdom can do more than we have promised and are carrying out the 4,700.000,000 pounds program unless there were to be a radical change in the economic policies of all members of NATO involving something much more like a war economy, both internal ly in each case and in relations with one another.
