Women's dormitory social fees
have been raised by a recent vote
of the Women's Honor Council,
according to Miss Ruth Jones,

to $2 and the assessment fee to
?1 per semester. Former fees were
50 cents and 75 cents. They are
required of all residents of wo

The reason for the increased
fees is to allow the dormitories
to carry out a more elaborate si -cial
program, which has been urg
ed by some administrative o;f)
cials, said Miss Jones. The offi
cials, she said, want to see morf

The increase in the assessment
will eliminlate the necessity cf
