New Colleges Will Serve 200,000 Students Eighty new colleges with an enrollment capacity of 200,000 students will be established in the next few years in 26 different state. In a 1 state-by-state survey reported recently, it was found that at least 31 of the new colleges enroll'ed students for the first time this year, and another 49 will be taking students in the next few years. Still another 14 new campuses are being talked about. "Altogether," the report says, "these new campuses will have a total enrollment of at least 200,000 students. Most of the institutions wiH foe publicly supported, and the majority will be two-year colleges." Biit, it was pointed out, more than a dozen new private institutions are being founded; nearly a third of all turned ujp in the survey are four-year colleges. In at least .two cases, the new schools will be two- year upper-division colleges for juniors «nd seniors. Just how many institutions will spring into being over the next few years no one can say for sure. A college that is no more than a gteam in someone's eye this year may be enrolling its first classes three years from now. A parent looking ahead to the expense of sending his youngster off to the state university may discover when the time • comes that a new 'branch campus has been established conveniently at his doorstep. Horses Go Where the People Are COLLEGE STATION. — The horses of Texas 'are moving from the ranges and farms to the cities, says Ed Uvacek, livestock marketing specialist, with the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. Today horses are found predominantly wihere the people of the state are concentrated, he says. The specialist points out that while horse numbers in Texas and the U.S. as a whole, show a decline, the ones that remain are being concentrated in certain areas. With the exception of the large cattle ranches which use horses for working cattle, the primary concentration of horses is near the metropolitan areas of the state. The counties with the largest numbers are: Kleburg, Harris, Tarrant, Washington and Brazoria. The specialist says that riding stables', 4-H Horse Olubs, and just owning a horse, have become popuhvr with the city dwellers of the state. Texans' love for horses has made them worth $31 million, an amount larger than our farm value of hogs, or goats, or even mohair production, says Uvacek.

C. Jurgens, supervisor of Inland Fisheries at Rockport for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. In January 1963. six young redfish were placed in a 2-acre holding pon'd at the hatchery. They were approximately 12 inches long at that time. Tests showed that the water contained only 276 parts per million chlorides (sea water contains 35,000 ip.p.m.) A few weeks ago three of the redfish were positively sighted for the first time in nine months. They are now approximately 20 to 24 inches in length and iseem to be doing well. Other fish living in the pond include largemouth bass, channel catfish, mosquitofish, sailfin mollies, golden shiners, black crappies and Rio Grande perch. "This information," Jurgens said, "lends credence to the lie- lief that this saltwater fish has possibilities of becoming, in time, an important transplant into fresh water."
