VOLUME XLVIII Number 121 UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, THURSDAY, MAY 1. 1947 SU Fund Race Closes May 10 Nine days are left to raise the §5,000 goal for the Student Union building before May 10, when the winners of the contest between liv ing organizations will be an nounced. The vice-presidents of the living organizations, as members of the SU steering committee, have been automatically appointed as chair man of the drive for their respec tive houses. Two console model ra dio-phonographs will be awarded to the men’s and women’s houses turning in the greatest per capita . donations. Vice-President in Charge The SU committee has offered several suggestions to the vice presidents for the carrying out of their house campaign. They suggest that the student write home asking for donations from his parents which may be counted as a donation from his house. Suggested activities for the hous es include a raffle of unwanted ob jects given by members of the house with the proceeds going to the SU. A benefit dinner and theater party for the organization ,in which each member pays a fee to attend as well as paying his own expenses, has been suggested. They also suggested “pooling pennies in a jar centrally located in the house. The whole nation is watching the University and the alums will re spond in donations according to the enthusiasm showed by the students, Wally Johnson, campus SU chair man, said yesterday. Dorm Deposit Fee Increased to $15 The increased deposit required to reserve dormitory rooms for the summer session or next school year will in no way affect total room ex pense, Mrs. Genevieve Turnipseed, director of dormitories, announced yesterday. She explained that the deposit fee was uppe'd from $5 to $15 to dis courage prospective students from reserving rooms and then deciding not to attend this University. Last fall 180 more students could have been accommodated in rooms not claimed by students who had re served them. It is felt that an in creased deposit will eliminate this difficulty in locating housing for as many students as possible. To Cover Three Terms Mrs. Turnipseed further ex ^ plained that the $15 will cover room deposits for three terms instead of the customary $5 deposit each term. The entire sum will be returned to the student at the close of the school year. For students here both sum mer and fall term the single deposit will be all that will be required.
