UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 1942
Zeta Hall Shut for Term
By EDITH NEWTON
An innovation in dormitory set
up will provide for a late break
fast on Saturday, it was learned
Thursday after Mrs. Genevieve
Turnipse'ed, dormitory director,
had previously decided to close
Zeta hall and Emerald house.
As student registration took
another long glide down, particu
larly in number of men students
enrolled, Mrs. Turnipseed con
cluded it would be advisable to
close Zeta and' move the students
living there to another hall. The
majority of Zeta men, approxi
mately 28, were moved to Ome
ga hall. Others went to halls of
their own preference.
Emerald House .
Emerald house, opened last fall
term for the overflow of dormi
tory girls, was also closed after
registration, since 24 dormitory
girls had moved out after rush
week leaving sufficient room for
the 13 Emerald house occupants.
Dormitory students will have
an opportunity to sleep later on
Saturday this term and still have
breakfast, it was decided when
the food committee met with
Magk Turnipseed and Miss Helen
Goodenow, dormitory dietitian.
New Breakfast Plan
According t)c> the new plan,
breakfast will be served from 8:15
to 9 o’clock Saturday as it is on
Sunday. For students who must
eat earlier because of jobs or
other reasons, the breakfast line
will be open for 15 minutes be
ginning at 7:30 Saturday morn
At the suggestion of the com
mittee, a new policy was started
yesterday whereby a dorm stu
dent will check each day’s menu
