Colleges Witness New Advances in Co-ed 1


The concept of coeducational housing is slowly gaining advocates,
Assistant to the Director of Housing John Hale said recently. The
University, the first school in the Big Ten to implement coed living,
will soon venture into the field again. In September coed units will
be opened for use.
Coeducational housing experiments have in the past proved sat-
isfactory, Hale noted. In smaller colleges coed housing often is a mat-
ter of two separate buildings with one building for dining. In larger
schools this may be the case or complete coed housing units exist
which means putting both men and women in the same physical
plant for living as well as dining.
The history of universities often includes the policy of separating
the sexes in living, Hale noted. Although the distances between living.
units is not as great as at the University, most large schools separate
a "men's area" and "women's area." Now, however, the trend is
toward eliminating these distances and unifying living units for both
'Choice' Housing
At the University, the policy of coed housing is included in an
overall objective of "choice" hcusing. When the Oxford Road project
for women is completed, and coed housing has been implemented, stu-
dents entering will have a choice between many types of living; large

or small, one sex dormitories or quadrangles, apartment living or
coed housing.
The University's first experiment with coed housing came during
the Korean War, Hale said. The population of men declined and that
of women proportionately increased. At that time Tyler and Prescott
houses in East Quadrangle were converted into women's units.
Following this successful experiment, Chicago House in West
Quadrangle was also opened to women. And ultimately, after Chicago
was returned to men, Frederick House in South Quadrangle housed
University women.'
Worked Well
All of these arrangements worked out well, Hale noted. The only
two problems were the administration and the facilities' changes.
Since, at that time, the housing of women was guided by the officz
of the Dean of Women and men by the Dean of Men administration
was often overlapping and difficult. Since these units were for tem-
porary use, too, facilities had not been changed to accommodate wo-
men. The physical plant remained the same.
Hale commented that student government in these units worked
exceedingly well. There were no serious conduct problems, in fact,
"conduct improved," he said.
In the new, proposed coed plans for next fall, existing facilities
will be used. No definite plans have been made yet as to which units

will be used for coed living. The decision will be made within the
next few months by the Residence Hall Board of Governors and a;
special Assembly Association-Interquadrangle Council study com-
North Campus Unit
The University once had plans for a coed unit to be built on
North Campus. These plans will be re-evaluated now in reference to
planning for the new conversions of existing units.
Bursley Hall, as the proposed unit was named, consisted of a
circular, central unit connecting with two V-shaped buildings. A wing
of each of the buildings was for women, the other for men. In each
wing separate "private" facilities existed such as lounges for men or
women only. In the central vortex of the V common dining rooms
and lounges were housed. The two buildings were then connected to
the central circle which was also a common area for both units.
Coed housing at most other Big Ten universities is more along
than at the University, Hale noted. A few schools have altered exist-
ing facilities but a larger number have built new buildings. In the Big
Ten now Indiana University, the University of Wisconsin, Ohio State
University and Michigan State University now operate coed units.
The University of Illinois and the University are contemplating such
action with definite plans and a target date set.

At MSU there are two separate buildings with only the dining
room and snack bar in common. This type of housing is also unique
in that the complex of buildings includes classrooms.
OSU's coed unit is similar to the- one at MSU. Hale noted that
at MSU there have been complaints that there is not enough privacy;
eating privately, for example.
At IU and the University of California at Berkeley coed housing
units are all in one building. Some of the halls at IU are newly
constructed but others were converted.
Decision on Finances
When a school is considering coed housing much of the decision
as to whether to convert existing facilities or build new ones is de-
termined by finances. It also depends on what standards the school
wishes to maintain, Hale said. If few changes are to be made and
this is considered adequate then conversion can be inexpensive. If
the standards include many more changes, for example, longer beds
for men, full length mirrors for women, the expense can be very high.
At many of the Big Ten schools a majority of the students now
live or will live in coed housing units. At the University "the signifi-
cant step by next September will be to decide how much further to go,"
Hale said. He speculated that most interest for coed housing comes
from freshman and sophomore women and men in all classes. "Senior
women don't care too much."

Court Case

NEW DELHI (')-Wave after wave of Red Chinese troops firing

divisions into an attack on Indian positions along a 15-mile front two

Bromage Analyzes
Urban Government
"Development of a full-fledged federation appears to be the
only course of action if the theory of self-government is to be
carried to the metropolitan- level," Prof. Arthur W. Bromage,
chairman of the political science department, declared in a
recently published pamphlet on metropolitan government.
Discussing urban government and single-purpose authorities
in "Political Representation in Metropolitan Agencies," pub-
lished by Institute of Public Administration, Prof. Bromage
noted that urban areas have resulted in a series of population,
economic and social problems that go beyond political boundries.
He said that two-tiered metropolitan government is the best
way to cope with these problems. The metropolitan council
would concern itself with ordinance making and administering
area-wide services such as water supply and garbage collection.
Retain Functions
The local units comprising the metropolitan federation
would retain functions that are of local concerns.
"Federalism does bring complications in its train which are,
not easily resolved: division of functions; composition of the
upper tier government, possible dimunition of public interest
in internal units; and the costs of supporting another level of
administration," Prof. Bromage declared.
"The real problem in metropolitan federation is not whether
a government can be designed, but whether it can recommend
itself to a state legislature and the people of the region," he said.
Growing Areasj
"For the growing areas, it is a compromise between decen-
tralization into established local units and consolidation on a'
unitary basis," he added.
Single-purpose metropolitan authorities were also reviewed
by Prof. Bromage. He noted that most are autonomous and are
removed from direct popular control.
Some authority board members are appointed by local
governments, others by the state and a few have representatives,
of commercial interests they serve on their boards, he noted.

LAFAYETTE-The Michigan Wolverines made early game
mistakes and sputtered ondoffense again to suffer a 37-0 loss
to Purdue, marking their second straight humiliating shutout.
This time the defeat was the worst suffered by a Michi-
gan team since Minnesota scored a 40-0 win way back in
1935. It was even worse than last year's Ohio State debacle and
marked Purdue's first victory over Michigan since 1929.
The entire game was played under dark skies and oc-

The Boilermakers rode the arm
