The Colorado-Wyoming Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers voted to delete from all uniform application blanks any reference to race, religion or church preference.

Notice of the action was conveyed by Charles H. Maruth, director of Admissions & Records at Denver University to Dr. Arthur L. Campa, chairman of the Mountain States Committee on Equality of Educational Opportunity in Higher Education, an organization of educators from Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and Utah which seeks to eliminate discriminatory aspects of college and university life.
