Returning Vets Welcomed
By Administration, Students
Hearty welcome to Oregon men and women returning to the
University of Oregon after wartime service to the country was
■“Expressed Wednesday by Dr. Earl M. Pallett, executive secre
tary, speaking in behalf of President Harry K. Newburn, who
is in the East in the interest of the institution:
"It is gratifying to see so many of the former students back
on the campus after doing their share in the war,” Dr. Pallett
said. "I notice also a large number of new students among the
returning veterans, and to them as well as to the former Oregon
men and women and to other new students we extend a most
hearty welcome.
“The newcomers may he assured that everything possible
is being done to take care of them, both in the difficult matter
of housing and in the academic work of the University. It is
unfortunate that housing conditions are so difficult, but with the
active co-operation of the people of Eugene the situation is
rather better than had been expected.
“Students registering this term in the face of the unusual
discomfort are showing a spirit that should .carry them along
successfully in their pursuit of an education.
“Veterans who returned last term made, in many instances,
rather exceptional scholastic records. All may be assured of
every effort on the part of the faculty and administration to
see that they get the most possible out of this educational

for whom no housing was available
warning them that if they wanted
to attend, they would have to find
their own rooms. Karl W. On

29 More Houses
Forty houses and 50 trailer
houses secured by the University
have already been filled by mar
ried students and their wives. In
another month or two 29 more
houses across from Hayward field
will be ready for occupancy.
The University is constantly
trying to secure more accommoda

The second floor of Villard hall
has been converted to house 80
men and the third floor of Ger
linger hall is now the home of 36
women. Thatcher cottage has also
been changed to house 24 men.
Of those students who were liv

which opened this term, some will
stay in the fraternity houses as
members or as paying guests.
Room for all the women was found
in the dormitories.
A drive headed by Herbert Cox
and Arthur Priaulx to find more
room for veterans in private
homes has helped the situation,
according to Mr. Onthank. “They
have found more room in this city
than I ever thought they could,”
he said.
