Feels War Effects
By ELIZABETH ARMSTRONG
A paper shortage isn't such a
bad idea when the exams that
may not be given are considered
but in many other ways students
will feel the shortage, and the
final curtailment of paper. The
first and most vital effect, espe
cially with spring term well on
its way, is the allotment of pho

Cancellation of all spring term
exchange desserts has been or
dered by the heads of houses, it
was revealed Monday evening by
Nelda Christensen, president of
Rises in food prices were given
as one reason for the cancellation.
"It seemed a logical way to cut
down expenses,” Miss Christensoft
said, "and by doing that we can
save time and money for national
defense. We keep saying that we
are going to do something for the
war effort and I think it's time
we started. We want to start with
the first thing first, and this is
the first thing we can cut."
Suggestion for th6 action was
made by Hazel P. Schwering,
dean of women, and a unanimous
vote was made in favor of cancel
lation. The new ruling will affect
all desserts, even those previous
ly scheduled, with two exceptions.
The Highland house preference
dessert set for Tuesday evening,
and the Hilyard-Canard dessert
will not be affected.
Men seemed less perturbed by
the new ruling than women. Dave
»Holmes, social chairman of Phi
Delta Theta, said he believed can
cellation would cut down expens
es, and that "all the men and
girls who need to get acquainted
have done it fall and winter
terms, so spring term desserts
aren’t really necessary anyway."
