A»KAM»«» University Gets New President .When students return to the University of Arkansas tor the fall semester August 27. the institution will have a,new president, ' the .fifteenth in the 103- year history :ot the University. He is'Dr. Charles Edwin Bishop, named in June to succeed Dr; David W. -Mulling, who had been; president of the U of A for' 14 years · when he retired last March. J3isHop, chancellor of the College Park campus: of the University of Maryland, is expected to take up His new duties by, September 1. He has visited the .campus several days during the. past'few .weeks, getting acquainted with key, administrators' arid otherwise. orienting himself to the.instiution. At Maryland, he headed the tenth largest university campus in the'nation, with an enrollment of almost 34,000 students. At Arkansas, he takes the helm ef a growing University system, with an enrollment of close to 23,000 on six campuses. In interviews before arriving on the job, Dr. Bishop gave some indications of the philosophy with which he will approach his new job. He has stressed, for example, that he will settle for nothing less than first-class quality in faculty and programs for what he describes as the "young" University System. PLANS FOK UA ·In an interview shortly after being named to the position, Dr. Bishop also stated a belief that there is a need for specializaton among the various campuses of implement a strong program In adult education; that the system will continue to grow, and t h a t capital improvements ar« needed acutely on the Pine Bluff arid Fayetteville campuses of .the System. On the Fayetteville campus, considerable . construction Is presently going on. Work is continuing on the addition to Waterman Hall (the Law School building); on the track and baseball complex on Razorback Road; on the athletic administration building at the north end of the stadium, and on the sas Union and the University Library. Out at the Argicultural Experiment Station, the walls are rising on a new abattoir (slaughter house) and it is hoped that it will be completec by January 1. Other construction t h a t has been programmed for the near future by the University includ es a new Business Administra tibn Building; an addition to the Fine Arts Center; a Plan Sciences Building, and the reno vatin of Old Main. NO CHANGE University officials do not ex pect any significant change in enrollment for the fall term. Af ter two years of small declines enrollment has leveled out these officials say. This is In keeping iwth hte trend acres the nation. At the Fayetteville campus, the enrollment last fal was 11,049. This figure for th University system in the fal of 197.1 was 22,566. In academic programs, pro gress has been noted in recen months. The psychology depart ment received notice from th American Psychological Asso ciation (APA) that the accred tation for the department's gra duate program in clinical psy chology had been extended. Th accreditation had been threat eried because of a lack of spac and inadequate facilities. The University plans to re model the old Student Unio (now called Memorial Hall) fo the psychology clinic and wi the psychology Clinic and wi seek funds for the next sessio WoolwortR DR.

The visitation team from the PA that visited the campus ast spring inspecting the facilit. es apparent,y felt the Univer- ity was making a sincere ef- ort to upgrade the psychology acilities and thus extended the ccreditation. However, the APA made the xtension for only three years ather than the usual five ears, and indicated that it ex- ected more progress when the earn visited the campus again n 1977. ' FILLS VITAL NEED The Student Counseling Cener, opened by the Division of tudent Affairs last fall, has gotten off the ground success- ully and is filling a vital need amorlg students. This office provides aptitude testing and personal and career counseling, and also cooperates with the various colleges to give academic advising services, thus iclping students chart their course toward a degree with more fortthought. Also continuing to oper ate with considerable success s the special services program under the Division of Continuing Education. Under this program students from disadvantage! backgrounds obtain special re medial s e r v i c e s , including counseling and tutoring, which enable many of them to mak their grades where once the might have failed.

Gas Saving High school driver education Is an important method for teaching the concepts of energy conservation, the American Automobile Association says. Such courses reach new drivers at a time of peak learning interest, before they develop habits that waste gas. Fuel- saving driving techniques can be constantly stressed in driver education classes, and students have the opportunity to practice them during behlnd-the-wheel sessions. Saving fuel by driving slower also serves as a safety measure because teens usually drive to school at the same time younger children are walking to school.
