Bill Lord led the team with 280 total, followed by Bob Alcott with 279. Third and

Registration Figures
. Fall registration fell to 986: 330 freshmen, 252 sophomores, 174 juniors,
219 seniors, and 11 graduate students. There were 86 World War II veterans and 16 Korean
War veterans in the fall class. By department, that enrollment revealed 196 in business
administration, 30 in chemistry, four in physics, 143 in chemical engineering, 158 in civil
engineering, 198 in electrical engineering, and 257 in mechanical engineering.
Curriculum Revisions
. The eight-week summer term for chemistry and all engineering
students at the end of their freshman year was discontinued; it had been part of the engineering
curricula since 1948. As a result, engineering students followed a revised four-year curriculum
with a minimum of 148 hours required in all disciplines except civil engineering.
CE students still were required to attend a five-week summer session to learn
elementary and topographical surveying, bringing their total hours to 156. With these revisions,
freshmen majoring in chemistry and physics and in the Department of Business Administration
were required to complete a minimum of only 132 hours for graduation.
