WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION:
'U' Offers Physical Education-for Fun, Crec
By MICHAEL BURNS
Democracy and economy are the
goals of cooperative housing on
the University campus.
First organized in 1934 for the
purpose of economy. the co-ops
have grown to include 133 stu-
dent residents and 74 students who
take only their meals at the
There are eight units on the
campus: four for women, three for
men and one apartment building
for married students. Each of
them operates under the Rockdale
principles which call for open
membership, one vote for each
member and the equal sharing of
the duties and responsibilities as
well as of the benefits.
About 30 per cent of the mem-
bers are foreign students who par-
ticularly enjoy the cosmopolitan
atmosphere of the co-ops. Indi-
viduality as well as the spirit of
group cooperation is stressed and
no attempt is made to standardize
The affairs of the houses are
run on a democratic basis. The
members decide on the work
schedule, the type of food they
want and the house policy and
rates. Officers are elected to lead
the group and a house manager is
chosen to run the affairs of the
house. The manager's job is to
assign the work tasks and to pur-
chase the food.
Food is purchased in large
wholesale quantities and the ad-
ministrative and maintenance
work is done by the members.
There is no hired staff or faculty
Inter-Cooperative Council plays
an important role in purchasing
quantities of food for all the co-
ops. The Council also buys houses
to establish new cooperatives.
The cost of cooperative living is
approximately $240 a semester for
room anti, board, plus about five
hours work ;a week. Students who
desire only board pay about $150
a semester and work a fewer num-
ber of hours.
Room arrangements are up to
the individual and he may choose
his own roommate. Any student
may apply for admission at the
ICC office on the second floor of
the Student Activities Building.
Vacancies are filled on a first-
come, first-served basis. The ap-
plicant has his choice of houses
and when a vacancy occurs in that
house he signs a contract, chooses
his room and arranges his work
schedule. He is then a partner in
and a member of the cooperative.
COOPERATIVE LIVING-These students may well be enjoying
a sense of accomplishment, for they are members of a co-op, a
residence unit in which all roomers chip in on the work of keep.
