Assembly Studies Upperclass Housing

Regents Grant Leaves
For Off-Campus Duty

Assembly Association, in con-
junction with the office of the
Dean of Women, has made the
study of upperclass housing for
women at the University one of
its major projects this year.
At the March meeting of the
Board of Governors, Joan Comi-
ano, '60, then president of Assem-
bly, presented Assembly's recom-
mendation on upperclass housing.
The motion, to "approve the ex-
panison of upperclass houses for
women in the residence halls as
the need arises," was passed by
the board.
"The philosophy of upperclass
housing at the University dates
back for years," Assistant Dean
of Women, Elsie Fuller, said.
"Within the past eight years the
feeling among upperclass women
that apartment-type residehce hall
living could best be realized in an
upperclass dorm system has be-
come more and more pronounced."
Barbour Approached
Before Mary Markley Hall was
built there was no way of accom-
modating a-permanent upperclass
house (other than Martha Cook
House) and so Assembly, realiz-
ing the increasing demand for
this type of living, approached
Betsy Barbour House. It agreed
to become an upperclass house
on the condition that when the
new dorm would be completed it
would again become a four year
dorm and the upperclass house
would then be placed in Mary.
Markley Hall.
Upon the completion of Mark-
ley, Barbara Little House became
the upperclass dormitory. It has
remained so for the past two

years, and "in spite of the dis-
advantages under which it has
had to function, it has done re-
markably well," said Mrs. Fuller.
On March 23 the Assembly Ex-
ecutive Board drew up its cur-
rent recommendation on upper-
class housing:
"Assembly Association recom-
mends that Little House be re-
tained as the upperclass house for
the year 1960-61, that Betsy Bar-
bour or Helen Newberry (which-
ever has the highest turnover)
replace it as the upperclass house
for the year 1961-62, and, pend-
ing further demand for this type
of housing, that Helen Newberry
or Betsy Barbour (whichever was
not converted in 1961-1962) be
considered an addiitonal upper-
class house for the year 1962-
This statement by Assembly
was followed by a rationale sum-
ming up their study.
Assembly concluded that a free-
standing housing unit would best
provide the atmosphere necessary
in an upperclass house. The ra-
tionale stated that "It is difficult
to provide activities geared to-
ward upperclassmen due to their
having to share the facilities such
as the dining room and lounge
with underclassmen.
Special Privileges
"Certain special privileges, such
as sitdowh dinners every night,
would be possible in a freestand-
ing unit, but are not possible in
the present situation."
The housing committee origin-
ally had thought that the resi-
dents of Little House, as "elder
statesmen" in the dorm, would

provide the leadership for Mark-
ley. This plan did not work out
in reality. Included among reasons
why an upperclass house should
not exist in Markley for any'
length of time is the statement
that "Little House has not pro-
vided the leadership of the total
building as it was originally ex-
pected to do."
Not Responsible
Joanne Vance, '60, president of
Little House during the past year,
admits that this is true. "Al-
though the officers have attempt-
ed to provide leadership through
Markley Council, the girls have
not felt that it was their -respon-
sibility to lead the freshmen and
sophomores," she said.
By the time the women become
upperclassmen, Joanne explained,
their interests widen, and pro-
jects such as working at the Mi-
chigan Children's Institute take
priority over residence hall func-
Mrs. Fuller feels that the very
fact that Little House is an up-
perclass house in an atmosphere.
where the majority of the girls
are freshmen and sophomores has
isolated it from the rest of the
Rationale Presented
At the same time the execu-
tive board presented a rationale
explaining why Barbour and New-
berry should be the upperclass
houses. As relatively small free-
standing units, "activities which
we feel are part of upperclass
housing can be carried out more
graciously in these units. Proxi-
mity to the campus would create
an added privilege for upperclass-
