Student housing at the Univer
sity has its ups and downs. Now,
along with the rest of the nation,
the housing situation here is most
ly downs. The outlook ?
The dormitories will be full. Mrs.
Genevieve Turnipseed, director of
dormitories, said there is already
a waiting list but applications will
continue to be taken. Rooms for
about 100 students may be found
in the dorms after fall term’s usual
first month turnover.
Glum for Couples
The picture is even more glum
for married students. Veteran
Housing Secretary D. H. Williams
expects about 85 vacancies by fall
term but has around 500 applicants
waiting for University family hous
ing. They are a year and a half be
hind the list, he said. Those who
■applied for housing a year ago
February, top the list of applica
tions for veteran and family hous
Off-campus, student housing is
just as scarce for married couples.
The off-campus housing secretary,
Mrs. Ada Stilwell, reported a few
listing of houses to be shared, a
few rooms, but no apartments.
There too, is a waiting list.
Single students wishing to live
off-campus, are not too difficult to
place, Mrs. Stilwell said. She
warned, however, that rooms and
apartments are high. Few students,
she said, can afford to pay most
current rents and go to school.
On the up side—the brighter side
•—of the housing picture, Mrs. Tur
nipseed said she will have some
listings of temporary housing for
students who are willing to wait
for dormitory accommodations. The
remodeling of Villard hall added to
the housing pinch, she said, and the
razing and moving of buildings for
the Erb Memorial building dis
placed nearly a hundred students.
This, however, was more than
equalized when two fraternities
moved from the vets dormitory into
houses, she commented.
Fraternities and sororities may
relieve the housing shortage slight
ly when they receive new pledges,
Mrs. Turnipseed said.

phasized that tags must be worn
to receive the lower prices.
