Wadsworth said there are thirty men here who do not have rooms at the present time. These men will be put in Cobb dormitory's base ment until rooms can be found for j tbem. I'ROBLEMS Wadsworth listed several prob lems he's facing in his job. to get students placed. "Some of the third year medical students are here and are temporar ily living in Connor dorm. They have to shift around in Connor as the regular occupants arrive." The football players are living in Winston, he said. They will have to move around as the regular students come back. "But the problems make it rou tine," he said. Three new dormitories behind Woollen Gym will open this fall and will house 652 students. But even these three Avery, Parker, and Teague, are not enough to get everyone settled at first. TIIliEE MAN ROOMS Three-man rooms will be the situ ation again in four men's dorms Mangum, uManley, Ruffin, and Alex ander. "Thirty don't have rooms so we're putting them in Cobb base ment as we have done the past several years," he said. Can't students find enough pri vate rooms in town? "Private rooms are getting very low," Wadsworth said. Available At Registration Student Wives' Tickets The athletic department has an nounced that tickets for student wives are available during regis tration. These tickets will enable a stu dent's wife to sit with the student in the student section. The tickets cost $10 and will be available to any student who has registered at Woollen Gym. Season tickets are. still on sale at $20 for five games, a reduction of $2.50 from the individual ticket price, n president; Miss Paddy treasurer. Sue Wall, ousing 01 Thirty Below Zero "I am encouraging landladies to rent rooms to women. We can put the men in Cobb basement but the girls have no similar accommoda tions. And more peop.e in town have started renting rooms to wom en." While Wadsworth talked a third year medical student called, want- ing to know when the undergrad- j uate students in Connor were com- ! ing back "I don't know when they're com ing back," he had to say. "School starts Sept. 18 but they may come back anytime. Some of them are here now." Married student hous ng is still a big headache for the Housing Office. "Married students, an? scrambl ing around and finding trailers and rooms. But there practically aren't any more two-b?droom places in Chapel Hill in tire price range of Merchants Plan Large Welcome For Newcomers On September 15, the Universi ty's new students will be welcomed to Chapel Hill by the Chayel Hill Carrboro Merchants Assn. and Chamber of Commerce. Directors of the event, the Chamber of Com merce committee, plan to feature a "misplaced items" contest spon sored by participating merchants. According to the contest rules, objects irrelevant to their business will be placed in the show win dows. New students will write on contest blanks listing the partici pating stores the names of the ir relevant items they find in the store windows. Ten-dollar gift certificates will be awarded to the first twenty cor rect answers drawn at the Merch ants Assn. Office. An estimated 1,500 new students are expected to visit the stores and take part in the contest. Welcome streamers and favors are being prepared by many merchants for the new arrival!;. Members of :he Welcome Stu dents Committee are: Milton Jul ian, chairman; Carlton Byrd, Ty Boyd, and Jo Augustine. The event is being financed by the Trade Promotion Fund of the Chamber of Commerce, - - y rtfmmium u i nhnn ii. secretary; and Charlie Gray, nation? ; the ordinary couple.' In fact, he said, there are most none of any kind." He said "almost nothing is "al- fur- nished." A total of 350 married students are livins in Vietnrv Villas in. ! cated in the Memorial Hospital' and jJVledical School area "But there are that many if not more married students on the wait ing list. Those on the list usuailv have to wait about a year before finding anything. For all his problems Wadsworth is not unhappy or angry that he can't find enough housing. He is, on the contrary, very grateful. "I am very happy that people are so understanding about He prob lems, which are nobody's fault, really." He was particularly pleased with the way the local radio station was helping the Housing Office. "I am very grateful to the radio station for their announcements about referring to us for rooms. The station has been very helpful."
