clude or include as many as she

ikes without making herself con-
spicuous. In a dormitory a girl
can be more or less by herself
than in any other place, depending
on her desire to broaden her ac-
quaintance. Socially a dormitory
s a very individualizing place-it
fosters individualism rather than
dscourage it.
Miss Smither, recalling her first
year here, said, "I can't forget my
freshman year in a league house.
It was as good as the average, I
think, but the room we had for
receiving guests was not at all at-
tractive, the shutters were always
lopping, the piano untuned, the
amp disconnected. There was
only one leather rocker and that
squeaked when sat upon. No one
ever played the piano except the
andlady's children on Sunday
morning. With the construction
of the new dormitory, the standard
of competition among landladies
will be raised, and only the best
eague houses on the campus will
urvive the test.
"College is a place to learn how
o select friends if one is ever go-
ng to do so," declared Miss
3mither. "By providing a girl with
uch broad possibilities for making
riendshps, and then leaving it up
o her own volition to choose, a
dormitory gives the opportunity to
bring out the best that is in her.
