With the dormitories being
turned over to the army to house
the trainees when they arrive, "the
University administration is giv
ing consideration to the finding of
adequate quarters for women, ac
cording to Dr. Donald M. Erb,
-president of the University.
There should be no fear for ade
quate housing for women as sev
eral fraternity houses will be
available for use next fall and
some sororities will be used. Dr.
^Crb pointed out that comfortable
quarters will be furnished for
women on a par with the halls
now being used.
Girls will have house mothers
and all the facilities of the va
cated halls. Alumni representa
tives in charge of fraternity
properties will meet next week to
determine the effect of the war
upon campus housing.

mainly been a concern of student
leaders. Only to the extent that
individual students are directly
effected do they keep tuned for
action. Athletics, Oregana, Em
erald, and social events are sore
spots. War necessities have a pe
culiar way of modifying student
Rights, if not nullifying them.
Inhere is a danger, but not as big
as some people seem to think.
The outcome of the campaign
Just ended may be fortunate when
the future of student govern
ment is considered. It has result
ed in a campus-wide awakening
to the actual power of votes in
politics. The election results for
next year are not in any sense
certain. Greek houses no longer
have to vote as “recommended.”

Independents now know that
their votes do count.
Also, the novelty of a woman

For the House
Basic to all reasons for partici
pation in activities is personal
prestige, improvement, and so
cial position. And behind the
mechanism of student govern
ment is the desire of living or
ganizations to “push” members
for the “sake of the house.”
Commonly attributed to wom
en is an idealism that may give
a healthy direction to post war
politics. Better politics in the
way of freer individual voting or
in unexpected political arrange
ments may easily resiilt. Closely
organized favoritism which has
characterized Oregon politics
may have weakened. All will de
pend on how students choose to
use their votes.
Fear for the continued exist
ence of hard won student rights
may well be laid aside when it is
realized that there are new rea
sons for interest in student gov
ernment, and that the ever-ex
isting personal and social mo
tives will continue.
