T berry residence on South State street
is the memorial to Helen Handy New-
berry, the wife of John S. Newberry,
'47, given b~y her children, Trruman
H. Newberry, Johji S. Newberry, and
Helen Newberry Joy.
These two dormitories were openeI
in 1916. len Newberry residlence
was originally supposedl to function
in connection with Newberry hall but
this Dlan was albandoned before the
opening of the hall for residence. The
Martha Cook building is Tudor Gothic
in architecture built at a cost of over
$700,000. Accommodations are pro-
vided for 117 women. The large plot
of ground adjoining was given by Mr.
William W. Cook, '80, 'S2L, now of
the new La clubh also.This h nand
was given to the University on con-
dition that it should always be a gar-
y den. The function of a dormitory, as
planned, was to t~urnish a home for
college women that should be uplift-
ing in 'arehitectural design.
Helen Newberry residence is some-
what less elaborate. The original
cost was $100,000 and there is room
for 82 women. Betsy Barbour house
on South State street was the gift of

tirely self-supporting. The price of
board and room is set by the Univer-
sity. Activities of the houses are
carried out under the supervision of
a social director and a business mana-
ger who lives at the houses cand stu-
dent part timte help is employed for
waiting table and for doing some of
the kitchen work. The women in the
dormitories are thus given the oppor-
tunity to live in an atmnosphere of in-
dependence, social refinement, and
culture at a nimmum expense to
them. The University housing rules
f'or women are rigidly enforced and no
infringement is permitted.
The general attitude toward the
dormitories today is one of unqualificd
approval. Harry Burns Hutchins,
president emeritus of the Uiiversity,
says of the dormitories, "I am very
