The co-op system was estab-
lished at the University during the
1930's and was the first in the;
nation. The Rochdale Principles,
under which the Inter-Coopera-
tive Council operates, include:
1) Open membership: E a c h
house is interracial, interfaith and
neutral in all external political,
2) Democracy: Each member
shall have one vote in the deci-
sions the organization makes. All
decisions are made at open meet-
ings by majority vote.
3) Cooperation: Equal duties
and responsibilities as well as
equal sharing of the benefits.

Advisory Board
In addition to the Board .of
Directors, a five-man Advisory
Board, made up of interested fac-
ulty and townspeople, serves to
provide an additional bridge, be-
tween the co-ops, the University
and the community.
Since 1944, the ICC has added
an additional house every two or
three years. There are presently
nine co-ops-three for men, five
for women, and one for married
couples. The ICC will continue to
buy houses as the need for them
Any student at the University
who is not a freshman, or is 21
is eligible to live in a co-op. Ap-
plications for a room are taken
on a first-come-first-served basis,
with no discrimination whatso-
ever. Often applications are filed
months in advance, as the limited
number of spaces available are
greatly in demand.
Allow Boarders
Many people who do not wish
to live in a co-op do want to
board there, and this is allowed
for some. Men may board at either
men's or women's co-ops, but
women cannot board at a co-op
without living there.
The women in co-ops have the
same hours as women in other
University-sponsored housing, and
each co-op has a house director
who. represents the University.
The women are allowed to elect
their supervisor.

dorm Women
Join Assembly
Like women drivers, an orga-
nization comprised of all dormi-
tory women seems to be headed
in two directions at once.
Assembly ' Association, as it's
officially called, likes to work from
the bottom up. But it also serves
a function working from the top
Actually, the duality of direc-
tions come from a duality of
roles. As a student organization,
Assembly digs into the grass roots
of the dormitory system, coordi-
nating house governments. At the
same time,. it moves up the ad-
ministrative scale to represent dor-
mitory residents 'on the Residence
Halls Board of Governors.
That board is in charge of plan-
ning, building, furnishing and
operating the dormitory systems-
male and female. Assembly thus

has to learn what the girls' house
governments want-and then de-
liver these sentiments to the resi-
dence-halls administration.
The conveyor belt of this oper-
ation is Assembly's legislative body,'
called Assembly House Council.
Composed of representatives from
each independent women's house,
AHC sets policy or makes recoi--
imenda ions concerning inter-
house relations and problems.
Assembly's channels from stu-
dents to administrators have giv-
en it important functions in deci-
sions on co-educational housing,
women's hours (see box on right)
and dress regulations.
The Other Half
In line with its two-direction
policy, Assembly is run by two
branches, the legislative AHC and
the executive committee. The ex-
ecutive committee is composed of
the top, officers of Assembly plus
the chairmen of various boards
which it establishes.
The Assembly president is the
official representative on Student
Government Council. She also

takes part in national residence
hall conferences involving wom-
fen and, 'sometimes, the National
Student Association congress in
the late summer.
Her power-along with the en-
tire structure ,of Assembly-has
been explicitly defined in a Defi-
nition of Authority which the Of-
fice of Student Affairs approved
last year. It was written by a
five-woman committee.
The definition delegates au-
thority down the administrative
scale from the OSA to Assembly
to the houses to individual house
women. Juniors and seniors liv-
ing in apartments may become as-
sociate members of Assembly and
share its benefits.

president for student affairs has

decision of Assembly within two
