D.tt; Larson urges all citizens to have their dogs vaccinated against rabies to protect pets and people. All dogs must have 1966 rabies tags by March 1, 1966. You may get a? tag for your dog at any veterinarian's office at a Cost

METRO MOVES AHEAD
If the academic world kept a record book. Metropolitan State College would probably stand at the top of the list in a category called "time required to establish a college." Usually the minimum for such a project is one year and often as much as three years is scheduled. Metro did the job iii five months.
Of equal importance was employing a faculty. This, task was made easier when the advantages of Denver as a place to live and the challenge and appeal of becoming associated with a new, unique college, brought more than 400 inquiries. With such a large number to draw from, it was possible fo hire an outstanding faculty of 36, half holding the doctorate, an unusually high percentage for a new college or even for many which have been established for a number of years.
Simultaneously with finding space and employing faculty, and staff, other projects were carried on developing programs of study, publishing a catalog with information on courses and curricula, purchasing instructional and office equipment, setting up registration procedures, processing applications and admitting students.
Meantime the executive committee for MSC was screening a field of 50 candidates for the presidency, and their choice, Dr.. Kenneth Phillips, executive dean of San Bernardino State College, was approved by the trustees in July. Dr; Phillips brought to Metro-a background in vocational education plus three years of j experience directing Site selection and development of a new college at San Bernardino, California.
Classes started October 4.
I The final fall quarter enrollment of 1,189 students was proof of the sound j udgment of the Colorado General Assembly that the Denver metropolitan area needed a' state college. These students are working toward one or more of the following objectives: (1) earning an Associate degree in two years, (2) following a curriculum pldnned to meet degree requirements of a senior college or university*
(3) taking terminal courses, to prepare, for careers, in business or technological fields, and
(4) enrolling. for selected courses to improve their, general education, obtain more competency for their present occupations, or prepare to enter new ones. -
Many students say that they would not have gone to college if. MSC hadn't -opened. Since, costs are low, averaging $125 per eleven-week, quarter f of/tuition, fees,. ..books, and supplies,, and most students can live at home, it .is possible to attend Metro for a small, outlay of cash. The' unexpected rfedltedtion of a .dreafn of goring. to. college ris^appaferit in the enthusiasm./ pf students, and., in the diligence ., with which, they attack their study assigri-rnentsr ;
The uniqueness of MSC stems from a combination- of several principles; emphasized in establishing the collegethat there should be a liberal admissions policy, that- there
should be programming of instruction on a year-round basis; that liberal arts courses and programs in semi-profess- -ional fields such as vocational-technical should be integrated and receive equal em-. phasis, 'that casts' to students should be kept low* that the faculty should place special emphasis on effective teaching, and that as stated in the act creating the college, "the program shall be comprehensive and of a quality which will enable a student to transfer his credits to any other existing state' institutions for an appropriate degree.
Although Metro is limited to offering two-year programs at present, there is a distinct possibility that within a few years it will become a four-year college awarding baccalaureate degrees. The act which; created the college states' that plans shall contemplate full activation of an upper ^vision program not later than the fall of 1970 subject to authorization by ;the Colorado General Assembly.
The 1965-66 catalog lists 110 courses, some continuing for two or three quarters. Fifty-six of these were scheduled for the fall quarter, with others to be offered later in the yqar. In order to serve employed people,; 34 of the 56 courses were scheduled after 6 p.m.
Students may -enter MSC at the beginning of any one of : four quarters. Registration dates for the .remainder of 'the current : academic year are: January 3, March 21 and June 10. Applications for admission should be oh file at the college not later than two weeks prior to the registration date for the quarter to which admission is sought.
Individuals desiring more information on the college are invited to call 292-5190 or visit the Office of Admissions; and Records, Forum Building, 250 West 14th Avenue:
