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
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
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.

The first annual Emerald Play

“Wild Bill” Stratton heads the
publicity committee and all shack
rats wishing to attend must sign
the Playday sheet in the journalism
building today or tomorrow and no
tify Stratton or “Wild Bill” Yates.
Feature of the afternoon will be
the adside-newside softball game.
Rumor has it that the sports staff
is planning an intrigue to bolt the
hunt-and-peck camp in favor of a
coalition with the hucksters.
