of students affairs, also attend
ed the counell meeting.
Major features of the dormi
tory report are the creation of
freshman dormitories, deferred
rushing for both men and wom

er term, an intensified counsel
ing program, and an enlarged
freshman orientation program
similar in size to the University
of Oregon (5,f>00 undergraduates)
with a living-in program which has
been considered as successful. We
have been criticized for appear
ing to rush this report through,
but it must be noted that there is
an element of time. If the pro
posal fs approved, it should be
ready to go into effect next fall."
Wright: "I would like to know
if Stanford is the best school for
such a survey? It Is a private
school and has no sororities.
Shouldn't we look at other schools
also before we form a conclusion?"

Pritzen: "OSC has not solved
the problem. They have no positive
rushing program. Their freshman
dormitory system is lax with some
freshmen living in dormitories
other than the one designated for
them. Men rush fall term and
enter the house of their choice
immediately, while women remain
in dormitories during their entire
freshman year. The situation is
not the same as that at Oregon.
Oregon State, however, does have
an extensive freshman orientation
*‘OSC has expressed dissatis
faction with their present program,
while Stanford exhibits general
satisfaction concerning their plan.

Ubby Miller, president of Delta Gamma sorority, issued a state
ment prior to the USA nominating assembly Tuesday to the effect
that the petitioning of Kay Kuekenberg, a Delta Gamma member, for
a USA office was an independent action.
Miss Kuekenberg petitioned for senior representative on the USA
ticket, and was considered for that post by the nominating assembly.
Miss Miller pointed out that this action in no way reflected house
sentiment. Delta Gamma is a member house of AGS.
Two other members of AGS houses — Karl Harshbargcr, Tan Kappa
Epsilon, and Pat Mullin, Delta Zcta, petitioned for USA offices. Neither
were placed on the ticket.
