        Working out course selections with consultant Everett Moore were
Robert
        Trochlell, Manitowoc, and Donald Hagen and Hughitt Johnson, both

        follow-up to the streamlining of registration procedures in-
        augurated last year for upperclassmen. The Board of Regents
        had directed a revamping of the sometimes tedious registra-
        tion process following a series of suggestions from the Board
        of Visitors.
           The program has brought an added public relations divi-
        dend to the University, too. In many cases, the incoming
        freshmen were accompanied by their parents, who themselves
        got an orientation to the campus. Some out-of-state families
        combined a Wisconsin vacation trip with the advance
        registration.
           The parents' reaction was uniformly excellent. They were
        gratified to learn that so many people were interested in their
        sons and daughters, and were relieved to share with other
        parents the fears, problems and misgivings that frequently
        arise. Many remarked that the experience was making them
        feel like a real part of the University community.
Parents and their sons and daughters met tor dinner in a
private room adjacent to the new Union cafeteria. Above,
Karen Sanford and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wood Sanford
of Menomonee Falls, pause at the cashier's table.
New students Adele Harris, Milwaukee, and Kathy Carnito,
Chicago, check in at the Badger Club dormitories with house-
mother Harriet Schleck while Adrian Kruswicki, Chicago, and
William Lanz, Monroe, await their turn. Adrian's father,
Stanley Kruswicki, sits patiently by.
Alumni Cecil Lovewell,
'30, and Mrs. Judith Fi-
garski Garlan, '34 met
at a reception for par-
ents in the Union. She
lives in Virginia, he in
Illinois; they both have
daughters ready for the
University.
