ff icials, Students Act To Avoid CrowdTin
L 1 U' lT a tr
By LESLEY FiNKELMAN
The Office of Residence Halls, Assembly House Council, and
Inter-Quadrangle Council are working to prevent another overcrowd-
ing crisis in the fall of 1965 comparable to the one experienced during
the last fall semester.
The steps being taken to avoid crowded conditions and unhappy
4 students involve warning students of housing conditions when they
apply so that they will be prepared to meet living arrangements and
assessing residence hall rooms to find each room's capacity.
"Last spring the investigation of room conditions originated when
it became obvious that the number of students to arrive in the fall
might be greater than what the University was at that time prepared
for," Director of Residence Halls Eugene Haun said yesterday.
"The first action occurred last spring when the only graduate
* students allowed to apply for quad residence in the fall were those
boys already residing in'Tyler and Prescott houses, and they had to
apply to their respective houses," Haun said.
"This allowed space for approximately 175 freshmen," Haun said.
"In the spring we were told to expect a total of 3,975 new stu-
dents by fall, but 4,129 freshmen, plus transfers, entered," he said.

Tuition Hike FOught
On Manitoba Camp__us
By CLARENCE FANTO
More than 1200 students at the University of Manitoba, Canada,
staged a demonstration in downtown Winnipeg recently protesting a
$75 a year across-the-board tuition increase.
The students marched to the provincial legislature building carry-
ing placards demanding that the sudden fee increase be rescinded.
But the legislature announced that it could not afford additional
funds for the university and that the tuition raise must take effect
immediately. The yearly tuition w

In late November, the univer-
sity's president suggested that a
$50-$100 fee increase was being
considered. On Dec. 2, the presi-
dent of the university's Student
Union announced a policy of
"freeze the fees" until the prob-
lem of student finances is studied.
At the same time, the Canadian
Union of Students, a powerful na-
tional organization, condemned
the imminent fee rise.
In mid-January, the Student
Union began to prepare a brief
for presentation to the provincial
government asking for a grant
sufficient to eliminate the neces-
sity for a fee increase.
On Jan. 25, shortly after mid-
night, the executive board of the
Student Union decided to call a
student strike and a rally at the
provincial legislature building.
The students were asked to boy-
cott classes for an afternoon to
attend the rally. At least 20 per
cent of the students participated
in the boycott and rally.
Although the students have
failed to achieve their objective
of forestallingvthe tuition hike,

to the provincial legislature.
