Off Campus Costs High
And Leadership Suffers
"It's cheaper!" That's the
cry of University women
students who prefer off
campus housing to dormi
tories. But is it?
An answer to this often
debated question Is found
In a master's thesis com
pleted this summer by
Miss Mary Whan, graduate
student in the Department
of , Family Economics and
The answer is "no", if
housing costs are consid
ered. In her sample of 1966
Nebraska coeds living on
and off campus, Miss Whan
found that off-campus stu
dents spent an average of
$45 a month for housing and
utilities, while dorm stu
dents spent only $28.
Daily Costs
Average daily costs for
every other item except food
were higher for off-campus
students, the study showed,
however, the lesser amount
spent on food was offset by
other expenses, and o f f
campus students tended to
eat less adequate meals.
The University, in ac
cord with its attempts to
stabalize student room and
board fees for three-year
periods, has kept the cost
at $725 per year since 1964.
The fee is expected to in
crease. Records for last semes
ter show that of 3,647 un
dergraduate, single women
at the University, 2,366 lived
in dormitories and sorori
ties. The study was limited
to full-time junior and seni
or women of whom 1,184
were enrolled last semester.
Of these, 109 lived in apart
ments. "Parents who face the
cost of dormitory expenses
and who help their young
sters decide where to live
must ask themselves if an
apartment is really cheap
er," noted Dr. Dorothy La
rery, chairman of the De
partment of Family Eco
nomics and Management,
who supervised the re
search. Leadership Opportunities

"They should also consid
er that girls in apartments
ate less balanced meals,
and that they had fewer
chances for leadership
which is a part of a college
education," she said.
Objectives of Miss Whan's
study, other than to com
pare costs, were to deter
mine if use of time varies
with living locationl if par
ticipation in campus organ
izations is affected, and the
extent of satifaction each
group of women receives
from the use they make of

Apartment dwellers often
believe they are saving
money, but Miss Whan's
research shows they spend
more for household items
such as light bulbs and
newspapers, telephone ser
vice, and have larger out
standing charge accounts
for gasoline, clothing and
leisure-time activities. How
ever, these differences are
not statistically significant.
The food bill is less for
off-campus coeds, but Miss
Whan questioned whether

women in apartments were
eating less adequate meals
than those living in dorms.
The women in her survey
kept a" record of all food
eaten for four days.
. Eating Habits
Although neither group
had a completely adequate
diet based on the "Basic
Four" food groups, girls in
apartments ate less well
than dorm students, and al
so ate fewer fruits and vege
tables. Do women in apartments
sacrifice free time for oth
er activities? Both groups
got approximately the same
amount of rest and studied
the same number of hours.
However, off-campus stu
dents spent more time on
household activities such as
cleaning, preparing food,
and shopping, and less time
on personal activities such
as dressing and letter writ
ing. No great difference was
found between the two
groups in the amount of
time spent working or on
pleasure activities, although
dorm students spent more
time with church or com
munity events, or dating.
Since students living in '
apartments often spend less
time on campus, Miss Whan
wondered if they participate
less in University activities
and hold fewer leadership
She found this supposition
to be true as just over half
of the off-campus students
said they did not partici
pate in campus sponsored
organizations, compared to
28 per cent of the dorm
students. Only two off-campus
students held offices in
any organization while
16 (45 per cent) of the dorm
students held offices.
The extra costs, less free
time, and less contact with
the University are apparent
ly compensated for in the
independence apartment
dwellers feel. This group
expressed a greater amount
of satisfaction from their
use of time, money, and in
terests than the dorm stu
dents. Only one of the 30 off
campus students said she
would prefer other living
arrangements, while 12 of
the dorm coeds said they
would like to try apartment
life. However, almost 60 per
cent of the dorm residents
said they preferred their
way of living.

'Objector Tatum Speaks
On US Peace Movement
The new conscientious ob
jector is a man of the world
seeking to apply his princi
ples to the world, said Arlo
Tatum. executive director
for the Central Committee for
Conscientious Objection
Tatum spoke on conscien
tious objection at the Univer
sity Tuesday night, sponsored
by Students for a Democratic
Society (SDS).
In his presentation, Tatum
noted the changing character
of the average conscientious
objector by citing the "swell
among the unchurched who
are applying fdr CO classifi
cation." Presently, aside from t h e
normal pacifist religious
groups, there has been a
large percentage of Roman
Catholics applying as consci
entious objectors, according
to Tatum.
This change in character,
plus the growing peace move
ment within U.S. armed
forces, makes the conscien
tious objector today a real
political factor for the first
time in history, according to
He continued to say that be
cause conscientious objection
is now a political factor, it
"increases the danger some
what." Tatum said that on the
whole the length of jail sen
tences for non-cooperation is
going ua.
In 1962 a jail sentence for interest, is another course the
non-cooperation was under conscientious objector may
