ROOM RENT S SHOW NO
INCREASE__THIS YEAR
Although the supply of rooms avail-c
able does not exceed the demand by
as large a number as at the beginning1
of the second semester last year, there1
has been no noticeable increase int
the room rent for students, according
to Dr. Frederick Wahr, assistant to}
the dean of students. In very few
cases has the sum asked for either
single rooms or suites been increased.1
This condition is in marked contrast
to that of last year when rents were
raised 50 cents higher for double
rooms, 75 cents higher for suites and
$1.00 higher for single rooms.
Rooms continued to be listed Satur-
day and Monday, and it is the opinion'
of Dr. Wahr that the increased en-
rollment in the University will be tak-
en care of by the larger number of
rooms available., Fletcher hall, the
new men's dormitory, will accommo-
date 30 students but only approxi-
mately half that number have taken
rooms there so far.
The rooming contracts drawn up by
Dean Joseph A. Bursley and used last
year are being provided again and all
students engaging rooms are urged to
sign them. The contract binds the
student to hold the rooms for one se-
mester, other contracts being provided
for the first and second semester.
