[Democrat photo] GSC total enrollment down, part-t=me students =ncrease Recently released figures show that enrollment alt:Glenville State College is down slightly from last year with a total enrollment of 1606 compared to 1.622 last year. The enrollment is the lowest of any four-year public college in the state. Mack Samples. dean of records and admissions, explains the drop as part of a national trend. "The figures below are a good indication of what is happening to student enrollment trends both at Glenville and on the national scene. The past two years have seen a decrease in full time enrollment and an increase in part-time enrollment. Since Glenville State College has practically no population base from which to pull part-time students, it has been forced to take its program to the people in such locations as Parkersburg and the Summersville area. In short. Glenville is holding its own in a very competitive market." said Samples. 1974 1975 +++Ira Freshman 414 435 418 Sophomores 347 349 265 Juniors 246 262 254 Seniors 279 282 235 Sub-total 1286 1328 I172 Unclassified 143 294 434 TOTAL 1429 1622 1606 Headcount enrollments for the current fall term at the 17 West Virginia public campuses are as follows: Marshall University-ll,149, West Virginia University-20.964.

Junk food jungle cleared Schools sell nutritious snacks By Paul Brown Editor The West Virginia Board of Education drew national atten- tion last year when they passed a resolution outlawing so-called "junk foods" from the state's schools. Under the resolution, schools could no longer sell candy, chewing gum, soft drinks and flavored ice bars. The state noted that "The encouragement of sound nutritional habits in the classroom and at the same time the promotion by schools of "empty calorie" foods in the hallways is, to say the least, at ambiguous practice." Principals in Gilmer County schools have encountered some minor problems in making the changeover, but u0ne of them expressed an erious reserva- tions about the new policy. Some principals reported a drop in revenuos from the sale of the new snacks. Gilmer County High, whose students buy more snacks than those at the elementary schools, has been hardest hit. "A case of Pepsi used to cost us $4.50, now a case of fruit juice costs us $6.60 and we're selling the fruit juice for the same 35 cents that we sold the Pepsi for." said GCHS Principal William Piercy. Piercy had a problem getting fruit juices in his vending machine in the first place. His Pepsi supplier told him that the company could not supply him with the juices. But when Piecy told the company to take their vending machine out, they found a way to supply the juice through shipments from Florida. The Future Homemakers Association sells ice cream at the high school while the Student Council sells nutritious snacks like peanuts, oatmeal cakes, fig cakes and beef jerky. Student council members re- ported that snack sales have not dropped off since last year. Troy and Normantown Schools have also had trouble with their distributors. Nor- mantown's Pepsi distributor has still not removed their vending machine or replaced the Pepsi with fruit iuices. While at Troy, Principal David Ellison has only recently received assurance from his distributor that he will begin supplying the school with corn chips, potato chips, cheese snacks and possibly orange juice. He's now selling ice cream and chocolate milk. Normantown Principal Roger Brady said there has been a good response to the sale of orange juice, chocolate milk and ice cream, but his snacks like oatmeal cookies, cheese crack- NUTRITIOUS SNACKS whlcl have replaced "junk food" at the high school. ers and beef jerky aren't selling too good. "The loss in revenue is made up for by the better nutrition we're offering them," said Brady. The new Glenville Element- ary Schoolhas encountered a different problem. Wiring for their freezer storage space has not been completed, so they don't have room to store ice cream and juices. The school is now dispensing nutritious snacks through a. vending machine and selling chocolate milk. Sand Fork Principal Tom Dooley has encountered the least amount of problems with the changeover. "We've really had no problems at all. The kids are going to buy, regardless. They're just a little more picky now because everything is differently priced." said Dooley Besides the snacks. Sand Fork is getting fruit juices from Pepsi, but Dooley said 100 per cent orange iuice and a drink called "Make-a-Shake" are the most popular items.
