ALTON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28, tttt Illinois State Normal Name Changed on Its Birthday If yo« are 106 yeafg old, il is hard to get folks to call you by a new name. t's the broblem faced by 11- State Normal University. ''Oil Jfatt. 1, it Will become "Illinois --fetftte University at Normal", as '-the result of legislation signed last Week by tSov. Otto Kerner. When •'the. University's 107th birthday is ' rtlarked oh Feb. 18, it is anticipat- v'cd that everyone wilt know its 'flew name. Although university adminis- "trators and members of the Teachers College Board took no direct part in the name change, ' they also took no action to stop it. All felt it was a matter for the legislature and governor to -decide. Prime movers in t h e .change were students and some "'faculty members who said the "Word "Normal" gave the wrong impression of a university now "granting doctorates. Widely used 75 years ago by two-year teacher training institutions, use of "Normal" by such schools now is practically extinct in the United Stales. Retention of Normal as part ol Ihc new name for the present ISNU appears appropriate, however, most people agree. For it shows location of the university in the Town of Normal. And tho town, almost a century ago, be came Normal, after the University was established, rather than the Junction (or railroad crossings) or North Bloomingfon, as it had been called before incorporated. Illinois State, as students already have been calling the university, may be a bit more diffi cull for the thousands upon thousands of alumni to get used to. And retention of the word "Normal" in the name will please old-timers, who will still return to the town by that name when they come back to their alma mater. "Where is Illinois State?" "At Normal," they can explain. It's really part of the name, you know. When you use the official title, you must say "Illinois State University at Normal."
