Shi Freshmen Live In Parlors
By MARCIA MICKELSEN
Inadequate dormitory space is
driving prospective students
away from the University.
Catherine Parks, director of the
Residence Halls for Women, said
this in regard to the lack of ade
quate space for unaffiliated up
perclass women in the residence
halls this year.
Miss Parks pointed out that
many women who would stay on
or who would transfer to the Uni
versity from other schools go
elsewhere because of the lack of
adequate space for unaffiliated
upperclass . women.
ALTHOUGH NO exact figures
can be given, Miss Parks said it
is known that several upperclass
women who wished to live in the
dorm this fall changed their
plans and went to other univer
sities because of inadequate
Unperclass women have a
chance to live in the dorm only
after freshman women who are
required by University regula
tion to live in the dorm, are pro
vided with rooms. Forty-four up
perclass women serve in the
dorms as counselors, but few
other upperclass women can be
accomodated in the limited space
There is a definite decline in
the number of upperclass unaf
filiated women who come to the
University. Approximately 150
freshmen women who are unaf
filiated live in the dorm, this and
only 79 upperclass women of that
category returned to ihe univer
sity this year.
OTHER RESIDENCES for up
perclass women include: Terrace
Hall. Wilson Hau ana interna
tional House. Howard Hall, which
formerly housed upperclassmen,
has been used for freshmen dur
ing the last two years. Rosa Bou-
ton has been closed entirely be
NU Housing Problem
New Ag Dorm To Ease Situation
Enrollment increases are not
great enough to show a definite
need for additional housing,
William C. Harper, director of
University commercial enter
'Harper, who has .oecn at tne
University for five years, said
that this fall is the first time
there has been "much worry
about accommodating every
one." USUALLY STUDENTS are
able to stay with relatives, he
said, but this year there were
evidently fewer students who
have Lincoln relatives. The
number ' of students housed on
campus may fluctuate from year
to year depending on that fac
tor, he said.

Due to the number of students
who drop out of school each term
for various reasons, the problem
is not as pressing at the present
time as it was at the beginning
of this year.
Freshmen women, unless they
are able to live with relatives in
Lincoln, must reside in Univer
sity dormitories. Three such dor
mitories, Love Hall, Heppner
Hall and Raymond Hall, comprise
the area known as the Residence
Halls for Women.
PART OF the housing problem
this year has been caused by an
increase of 30 freshmen women
and of 60 additional sophomore
women over last year's figures.
The extra students were accomo
dated by rearrangement of ex
The dormitories were built for
370 girls. Additional room was
created by converting the parlors
on several floors into living quar
ters. At present the dorms are
housing a total of 376 women, with
six women occupying parlors.
Rooms are arranged to house
two women. The parlors are nor
mally used as places for women
to gather in small groups, , and
are comparable to an average
Each parlor is adjoined by a
kitchenette which contains lim
ited cooking facilities used by
some of the women to prepare
quick snacks and occasional
meals. Because three of the 12
parlors are now converted into
rooms, women who reside on
floors with converted parlors are
deprived of the use of the normal
facilities. One kitchenette on th'vrt
floor of Raymond Hall serves 78

HARPER ESTIMATED that
such a dormitory would take
care of approximately 40 women
who are now living on city cam
pus. At the present time, Ag Wom

only makeshift curtains which re
duce the amount of privacy and

in parlors do not have the regu

calls and for callers, but must
rely on the buzzer systems of
'' However, they 'have full use.of
the kitchenette in which they can
lock their clothes and other valu
ables. Also, the parlors have
advantages such' as more spa
cious rugs and more windows.
Miss, Parks expressed a desire,
to remove all women from the
parlors and into regular rooms
as soon as possible, so as to re
store the conditions to normal.
Other campus houses were re
arranged to take care of more
of the overflow f rom . the 4 dor
mitories. In September, there
were 20 extra women in the
dorm; now the figure has been
reduced to six. A( total of 18
women definitely desired to live
in the dorm, but were accom
modated elsewhere in Lincoln. k
THIS SEMESTER the ruling
was waived for four women who
moved into houses, immediately
after Rush Week,. Those women
who did not have a chance to
live in the dorm did not have
the advantage of Jiving with and
meeting other freshmen and un
In addition, four second semes
ter freshmen were allowed to
move into sorority houses. Or
dinarily, these four girls would
have been required to reside in
the dormitories until second sem
ester when they became sopho
mores. To ease the situation further,
the nine pledges of Sigma Delta
Tau sorority were requested to
move into the house. This was
possible because sufficient room
was made available by the gra
duation Of a .number of members
in June. Although it is generally
assumed advantageous to move
into campus houses as soon as
possible, there1 women were de
prived of the normal "condition
ing period in the dormitories
and will not have a chance to
meet many of the freshmen
women, Miss Parks said.
FOURTEEN UPPER CLASS
women who normally would have
been residents of the dormitories
were housed on the third floor
of the Sigma Delta Tau house.

Twenty-five other women, who
would have been required to live
on campus under ordinary condi
tions, are living in Lincoln. Most
of these women are new students
at the University. Women, who
reside in Lincoln must stay in
private homes, Helen Snyder, as
sistant dean of women, said.
Most of the women who are
out in Lincoln would like to be
on campus. Judy Milder, a sopho
more who transferred from
UCLA, cited that the advantage
of living in a private home is
that it is easier to obtain food.
She said that the main disad
vantages were taking a bus to
school, being away from cam
pus activities, and not being with
ENID LEVEY, a sophomore
tranfer student from Ohio State
said, "I think there should be
more sophomore dorms." She
stated that the main disadvan
tages to living in a private home
are transportation and the miss
ing of "college life." However,
she said that it is "like living
in your own home," it is quieter,
and there are cooking privileges.

Women on the third floor of
the Sigma Delta Tau sorority
house said that they have trouble
studying because it is not as quiet
as the dormitories, because rules
are more strict in the Residence
Halls. The women prefer living
there to living in a private home,
or in the dorm and found it nice
to be on campus.
