Florence Gebe,
Those members of the senior
class who a t t e n d e d the Dorm drive
meeting in the Ingle room Monday
night went on record as being in
favor of a combination recreation
center a n d dormitory.
T h e meeting was called to clarify the objects
of t h e Dorm drive.
T h e approximately fifty seniors
present almost unanimously agreed
t h a t the dormitory would have no
ill-effects upon fraternities, sororities, and group houses as they exist
today. T h e session lasted from 8:15
to 11:15 o'clock.
Dr. Sayles, acting president, outlined his plan. T h e seniors responded with questions on t h e dormitory.
T h e practicality of a field house
was thoroughly discussed. A considerable portion of those present
expressed their opposition to the
building of a field house without
a dormitory.
T h e concensus of
opinion was t h a t further investigation of finances was required before a n y t h i n g further would be done.
No satisfactory plan was advanced
for the upkeep of such a building.
Field House
T h e field house as proposed would
consist of a gymnasium, bowling alleys, recreation center, and showers.
Dr. Sayles expressed his doubt of the
possibility of a loan to build a field
house which had no ostensible means
of self-support. T h e discussion revolved around the field house and
the purpose for which the money
is to be spent.
T h e drive started Tuesday morning. According to Janice Friedman,

will be no compulsion to pledge.

may feel free to pledge or to refuse
as lie sees fit. Said Miss Friedman,
"I cannot emphasize too much thai
no one is to be coerced into this.
T h e only thing I regret is thai the
weather kept so many seniors away
from Monday's meeting."
