The college is making progress in relieving the shortage of living quarters. The city, with civic and industrail bonds totaling $83,000 and a bond for elemantry schools amounting to $152,000 voted in last May, is doing its part to keep pace. Oklahoma A&M has purchased apartment buildings, quonset buildings and hutments to meet the demand for housing. Stillwater itself has a population in excess of 13,000 according to unofficial tabulations. The college enrollment is expected to add 9,000 more. Two assets of the city are airports - one on the north and the other on the south. the former is especially valubale, having long concrete runways and some hangers. two state airline companies have recieved authorization from the corporation commision to institute service through Stillwater on Oklahoma air routes. Styled the "augricultural capitol of the state." Stillwater also has other claims to recognition, not the least among them being its outstanding traffic safety record whichhas drawn national attention. Stillwater has some beautiful parks which are used extensively by the people of the community.
