fornia, and otherwise to the inevitable music of Art Holman.
The Kwama’s deft hands were felt in the enlarged repro

By BETTY LOU SIEGMAN
Sorority members became "house-boys” during rush week

were not used at all. Several of the houses have reported they
will staill need two or three more house-boys and others for
odd jobs. A few, however, (
signed up for the time being.
Restaurants and campus store

shortage problem. The Co-op
store has approximately half as
much help as it needs. The store
usually starts out the year with
40 employees. Tis year ony 20 re
