The board said that there is no
question "that at the present time
the married student housing situ
ation at State College is critically
acute." But, it added, the "over
riding question" is what will be
the situation when the units are
completed? It added that by the
most optimistic estimate the proj
ect could not be completed before
the 1959 school year.
So. it said, "No housing author
ized now will be available for the
vast majority of married students
now enrolled at State College."
The board said the critical situ
ation for housing of married stu
dents results from the presence
of many married veteran under
graduates who receive government
help in attending college. And, it
said, "The peak of married vet
eran enrollment at State College
has probably been reached, even
passed." It pointed out that vet
erans who entered service after

both starters on the National

McGuire hasn't decided definite

come from the three aforemen

Shaffer (11.8), Harvey Salz (10.7),
and Dick Kepley (4.6). Salz is an
