DES MOINES—Three North lowans were among six Iowa farm women presented with Farm Homemaking by Wallaces Farmer Master Awards magazine at a Tuesday. h a f <£ K «? S L i AST i?, RIP ~-^ y N " Mayer ' left ' Stacyville trucker, says goodbye to Station Agent George McCusker as he ends a period of almost 40 years of service. Mayer began hauling freight and other goods in Stacyville and surrounding area with a horse and wagon April 1, 1925. He purchased his first truck later that year. In 1931 he served as a mail carrier for three months when passenger tram service to Stacyville was discontinued. He then continued in the general trucking lines until his retirement. In 1961 Ray Mayer received a special letter of appreciation from the Illinois Central division superintendent for his service to the railroad and its customers.

All seven of the children were honor students in high school and have gone on to get de- IOWA CITY — With applications for admission from prospective freshmen running far ahead of last year's number, The University of Iowa has announced that it will give preference in single student housing to qualified residents of Iowa who apply for admission before March 1. Donald E. Rhoades, U of I director of admission, advised in a letter to Iowa secondary school principals and counselors that: "Any 12rh-grade student- who is a resident of Iowa, if he submits an application for admission and official transcript of secondary school course work to our office prior to March 1, and is admissible, will be given preferential treatment for University residence halls for the 1965-66 academic year, if this type of accommodation is desired." Rhoades said the policy was established because of the possibility that dormitory housing may be filled before fall. Ted McCarrel, executive dean of the division of student serv- ices, said applications for admission from high school seniors are 91 per cent ahead of the number received up to this time a year ago. The University has received 1,479 applications to date, he said, and a year ago the number was 757. "Each year the potential freshmen file their applications a little earlier. Some of bur current increase is due to this, but this can account for only a relatively small proportion of the increase," McCarrel noted. He estimated that the University's enrollment will climb to 15,850 by next fall, which is 1,370 more than the current enrollment on the Iowa City campus. And by 1966, he added, the University should expect 17,000 students. In September U of 1 opened with 14,480 students, which is 1,557 more than in 1963. McCarrel said it now appears that the projected enrollment for next fall will include approximately 3,200 new freshmen compared with 2,561 this fall. The next freshman class is expected to be made up of some 2,600 resident and as many as 600 non-resident students, approximately the same ratio between residents and non-residents that has occurred for several years. T. M. Rehder, director of the dormitory and dining system at Iowa, said the anticipated increase in enrollment may mean that all residence halls will be filled to their ( expanded capacities, which is somewhat in excess of design capacities. Rehder said the. University expects to house some 3,100 single women students and approximately 2,200 single men students in 1965. This estimate, he said, is based on the availability of more than half of a 563-woman addition to Currier Hall residence for women which is now under construction. He noted that a 521-men addition to Quadrangle residence hall for men is in the planning stages also, as are 208 more permanent apartments for married students. Next fall, however, the demand for married student apartments will continue to exceed the number of available units, Rehder said. luncheon here grces in college.

These women, along with ^ three others, were selected for * the honor on the basis of good 1 * :tomemaking and community!" service. According to Zoe Mur-< ?hy, women's editor at Wal-j .aces, they are outstanding e\-' amples of the many Iowa farm women who are doing an excellent job in their homes, with :heir families and who still have time to devote to their communities.
