In a report to EWU trustees last week, Admissions Director Glenn Feh- ler said the freshman enrollment has been climbing since 1977. "We feel very comfortable with what has been happening over the past five years," Fehler said. The quality of students entering EWU also looks good, Fehler said. For the last three years, the average grade point of entering freshman has been about 3.06. University President H. George Frederickson said that, under the six- year plan for higher education pro- posed by the Council for Post Second- ary Education, EWU will probably see a higher percentage growth than other state universities. Since funding is based on growth, Eastern's future appears bright. In other business, Frederickson said administrators hope to resolve the furor caused when EWU cut stipends to teachers who supervise student teach- ers in the classroom. EWU eliminated the $60 stipend last summer during budget-cutting action. That move saved the university $20,000 annually. Some school districts have threaten- ed, however, to refuse EWU student teachers in their classrooms, Freder- ickson said. Many student teachers have not been placed in a student teaching position for the quarter. Frederickson also reported the State Board of Educ_ation_hasapprove(i the pri-ncipal and teaching program for the next five years. Associated Student Body President Dave Rudy said students actively support the new Spokane Center pro- ject, but now they will be working toward getting the PUB expanded. Rudy also said the ROTC blood drive conducted recently was the best ever. The board also approved title changes for the business and finance office staff. The changes will become effective Jan. 1 when Vice President Fred Johns retires. He will be replaced by Russ Hartman. A special budget request to allow University Legal Assitants at Gon- zaga University to handle student legal problems was approved. However, be- cause of possible conflict of interest, other legal possibilities are being in- vestigated. School News Writing contest underway One of the most exciting things the Pacific Northwest Writers Conference (PNWC) has to offer every year is the High School Contest. Why? Because high school students are the future writers of America. Zola Helen Ross: one of the founders of PNWC says, "Writing can't be taught. You only learn to write by writing." To encourage young writers to write, another Annual High School Contest is in full swing. There are three awards in each of three catagories, non-fiction, slaort story and poetry.

Enus Wright, former direc- tor of the Black Education Program at Eastern Washington University, will be inaugurated president of Cheyney State College next month. Wright, who joined the EWU faculty and administration during the 1977-78 academic year, also served as asso- ciate professor of black education and history and as assistant provost for curriculum development at Eastern.
