New Student Week opened
officially on Wednesday with
the Chancellor's reception
and Frosh Hop at the Union.
Confusion rose as Arts and

University To Try Coed Dorm
In Burr Hall on Ag Campus
Only a lobby separates the
female and male students at
Burr Hall on Ag campus this
However, the lobby is the
only common ground between
the' two sets as large oak
doors mark the west wing as
"men's" and the east wing
as "women's". Also seven
counselors, one for each floor
in both wings, are on full
duty to see that the lobby is
the only common ground
between them.
Prompting the shift of 96
coerig to Burr Hall was the
terrific overflow of girls in
Fedde Hall. The University
felt that Burr Hall was never
filled to capacity with Ag stu
dents so they shifted the girls
to the east wing of Burr.
The male section will now
accommodate only 112 stu
dents and many others will
' have to live in apartments.

Ferguson said he hoped
the students would form in
their assignments to advis
ors. According to Lee W. Chat
field, director of New Stu
dent Week, the confusion was
due to the great number of
students and to the new op
eration of the reception. Aft
er a half hour, he said, the
confusion subsided.
Students were divided into
groups on the basis of col
leges. Each student went
through the Chancellor's re
ceiving line and also met the
dean of his college. Students
then met their advisors in
formally. At 10 p.m. the Frosh Hop
began in the Union Ballroom,
with Eddie Haddad's combo
playing. Helen Snyder, Dean
of Women, said, "It was con
fusion at first, but the stu
dents found it fun later."
Coliseum Convocation
Thursday morning, the new
students assembled in the
Coliseum for a convocation.
Chancellor Clifford M.
Hardin welcomed the students
to the University.
Following the convocation,
members of Innocents and
Mortar Boards, directed a
general orientation meeting.
Students then met in groups
with their faculty advisors.

Brown stated that he

present, has many possibili

and have had good results.
Brown added that since.

As extra precautions Brown
said that the staff has tried to

Pittenger continued.
Housing ( Faculties
Tn connection with the
housing facilities for the in
coming men, Selleck Quad
rangle Manager Alfred B.
Calvert reported that the
dorm is filled to capacity.
"TT.nnncrti Hnrm antilications
to fill the dorm were filed
by August 1. Any one com
ing now will uve in tne Duns,
section, an overflow area in
the basement," Calvert said.
Selleck will accomodate 930
men, including dorm coun
selors, in the rooms and 40 in
the overflow.
Calvert estimated mat
about 15 men had broken
their dorm contracts to move
into fraternity houses. This is
permitted by a clause in the
contract stating it can be
broken by paying $40.
