Students didn't get what

Standing in lines was a

"Running around" fo'r

Returning just to pay fees
was inconvenient.
Girls Dorm
At Capacity
This Year
"If there were any more
girls seeking residence I
don't know what we would
have done," said Helen Sny
der, dan of women, as all
houses reached full capacity
last week.
Corridor parlors were con
verted into rooms and tempor-
recreation rooms ot tne itesi-
dence Halls for women as it
exceeded its 500 bed capacity.
A total of 548 girls and three
graduate counselors r e gi s
istered in the Residence Halls
on city campus. Terrace Hall
with 34 was also full to capaci
ty as were Fedde with 70 and
Love with 49 on Ag campus.
Graduate and International
students are being housed in
the Sigma Delta Tau sorority
house. When graduate regis
tration closes next week, it no
doubt will also be filled to ca
pacity with 32 women. Rooms
are being rented on the month'
lv basis and residents obtain
meals in the Student Union.
Sigma Delta Tau girls are
residing in the Residence
i Halls this year since the Na
tional Chapter decided the
chapter was too small to op
erate a house. A future meet
