"The University housing commit
tee is working day and night in an
attempt to secure adequate house
keeping units for married veteran
students," Harry Comer, YMCA sec
retary, announced late Thursday.
At present several plans are being
considered for temporary and perma
nent housing. It is hoped that a defi
nite decision can be given early next
week for partial solution of this prob
lem. "However, under present cir
cumstances, with lack of materials,
no definite promise of housekeeping
unit construction can be made, even
after building may have been started,"
Mr. Comer stated.
According to a survey completed
December 6, 235 housekeeping, units
will be needed by February. At the
present time, 36 couples without
children and 31 couples with children
need homes. In January, 121 married
veterans are expected to register for
the first time.. At the beginning of
the law school term in February 13
more veterans will register.
There are now 650 veterans on the
campus, 450 more are expected in
January, and a minimum of 500 in
March. By next fall it is expected!
that the majority of students will be
veterans. Fifty per cent of the pres
ent freshman class is over 25 years
old. Most of these students are vet
The housing committee emphasized
that living quarters in Whitehead
dormitory and in the old infirmary
are merely temporary. Fourteen mar
ried , couples with children are quar
tered in the infirmary building and
40 couples without children are in
Whitehead dormitory. All xrt - - these
people need new quarters because, of
the lack of cooking and other facili
ties in their present domiciles.

Coed Senate Initiates
Social Conduct Probe
Group Recommends More Stringent Rulings;
Import Restrictions Suggested To Council
By Mary Hill Gaston
Social order and conduct on
come up for close scrutiny from
was brought to the fore Tuesday;
cussed the problem and sent a
the House Privileges Board, the
Women's Interdormitory Council.
Speaker- Lib Schofield opened the
discussion with a brief summary of
the problem and then threw the floor
open to the Senate for discussion.
- The Honor Code and the Campus
Code were brought up first, and it
was the unanimous opinion of the
Senate that both codes should be much
more fully explained during the ori
entation of new coeds. Since these
codes are the basis of all rules, the
senators felt coeds should be thor
oughly familiar with what they are
saying when they sign them in cere
monies conducted by Honor Council
Recommendations from the coed
legislative body to the House. Privi
leges Board were: for more frequent
inspections of fraternity houses, to
be made at any time and with no ad
vance notice whatsoever; for wider
publication of house rules now in ef
fect, to be made in both women's dor
mitories arid in the houses themselves,
so that students may learn the rules
they are responsible for.
! Imports Affected
v.Tb the Interfraternity Council the
Senate recommended that some
change concerning visiting privileges
of imports be made. Some members
of the Senate expressed the opinion
that fraternity houses should .have the
same closing hours for all girls as are
in effect for coeds.
-The-rSen&tewaa unanimous m its
recommendations to the; Women's In
terdormitory Council that frequent
room checks be made after closing
hours There was some discussion along
the lines that such inspections would
seem contrary to the Honor Code and
unnecessary because of this code. But
it was agreed that a minority of coeds
have, taken advantage of the code and
have slipped in or out of the dormi
tory after closing time. Serious pen
alties for coeds coming in obviously
under the influence of alcohol were
also recommended by the Senate

today that new students will be ad

custom as new students for the one

Summer quarters. .
The new ruling was made primarily
for the benefit of recently discharged

discharges soon. These men have
