outskirts is a sign that reads: "St.'
Joseph, Pop. 70,345."
St. Joe had a population of
70,000 when I left in the summer
of 1940. A great many young men
went away because the town had
little to offer a depression genera-
tion except for the sons of the.
bankers, grain mill operators and
scattering of manufacturers who
were its elite.
Suddenly we were "downtown"
and it ldoked old, so old, and worn
out and small but, most of all, two
of every three shops were boarded

is the third year in a row that the
Bell Tower has had to accommo-
date students at the "insistence"
of President Fleming. Although
they admit that the students are
being inconvenienced, they dislike
having to constantly deal with stu-
dent complaints about the rooms.
MOST OF THE complaints cen-
ter around the size of the rooms
and the fact that they have only
one desk and no T.V. "The quiet
atmosphere is good for studying,
^but it prevents you from playing
loud music," comments another
hotel resident.
A few of the students, however,
are satisfied with their rooms, par-
ticularly those that have singles
and haven't been moved around.
As might be expected, the price
of a Bell Tower room far exceeds
the cost of a comparable Univer-
sity room. The housing department
is currently paying the difference
between the standard dorm rate
and the higher Bell Tower fare.
THE HOTEL RATES, which have
been discounted as a favor to the
University, are $14/day for a
double and $10/day for a single.
This is costing the University an
extra $4.27/day and $7.61/day re-
spectively over what the students
are paying for their rooms.
Housing Director John Feldkamp
does not foresee any immediate
openings in University but is fairly
confident that "eventually all of
the students can be placed in
permanent housing."

AS IT HAS to so many towns, the
federal highway system has drawn
business to the shopping centers on
the outskirts leaving only decay.
We had lunch in the Pony Ex-
press bar of the Hotel Robidoux,
named after the city's founder, a
French fur trader named Joseph
Robidoux.
The hotel was once the hub of
social life. At Christmas, girls in
long gowns with gardenia corsages
and gawky boys in rented tuxes
traipsed the marble stairs to the
ballroom to. dance cheek to cheek
while a revolving, mirrored globe
made the waxed floor a kaleido-
scope of colors.

THAT DAY it was musty and
dingy and the only people in the
lobby were a few traveling sales-
men. A block away is the Corby-
Forcey building, still the highest in
town, 14 stories. On one of its win-
dows is a gilt sign: "Dr. Cronkite,
Dentist."
Dr. Cronkite is the father of
Walter Cronkite. I asked the wait-
ress if Dr. Cronkite still was prac-
ticing. She said she didn't know.
Dr. Cronkite had died several
months before.
St. Joe was a great place to
grow up and live in, but I don't
want to visit there again.
