Marked by ominous "official

sharp relief the probable poli-

showed that war-gripped con-
tinent moving swiftly and in-
exorably toward a heightening
of the present crisis, from which
definitive action of some sort is1
expected very shortly.
Confronted with a formal de-'k
mand from Great Britain and

apart in order to appease Reichs-#

New developments, arising out
of the crisis, and intensifying
with each dispatch from Europe,
are seen to be jeopardizing the
English-French hope that a
"general settlement can be
reached." From Rome the As-
Sociated Press reports that Mus-
solini will tell the world today
that his previous declaration
that "Italy's place is already
chosen," means that "Italy is
ready to take up arms at Ger-
many's side." Meanwhile massH
meetings in Poland and Hungary b
vociferously reluested that Hun- t
garian and Polish minorities ina
Czechoslovakia be "liberated."

plans for extensive destruction o
rooming houses to make room for ne
dormitories and University building
were voiced yesterday by men's anc
women's housing officials.
Dean Charles T. Olmsted, in charge
of men's housing, said yesterday that
although houses accommodating ap-
proximately 200 men will be razed for
construction of an addition to the
Union group, no immediate prospect
of a room shortage presents itself.
League Houses Condemned
Two League houses, located on the
sites condemned for the Union dor-
mitories and an addition to the Den-
tal School, accommodated approxi-
mately 50 women. Despite the loss of
these rooms,.Dean Byrl F. Bacher in
charge of women's League Houses said
last night, a full League House list,
which is adequate for present needs,
will make up the loss.
Single rooms are most in demand
now, the Student Housing Bureau in
the Union told the Daily last night.
Prices of rooms-double, single and
suites--ranged from $2.50 to $5.80
weekly, corresponding roughly to past
prices in rooms.
Dorms Available
Special overnight accommodations
for men in new Union dormitories
have been available to freshmen the
past week and will be available this
week to all students who have been
unable to secure rooms. These ac-
,ommodations, Frank Oakes, night
manager of the Union said, are avail-
able only overnight, the student being
expected to secure a room the next
day. Three dormitories, accommodat-
ing approximately 50 men, are located
in the new wing of the Union, two

of one and a quarter million dollars
to be obtained by a long-term, low
interest, revenue bond issue. The so-
called Union dormitories will be com-
pleted by the beginning of the aca-
demic year 1939-40. Operations on

I Week's Activities Will Be
Headed By Prof. Bursley
And Student Advisers
Freshmen Consult
Advisers Today
An innovation in Orientation pro-
cedure-the assistance exclusively of
upperclass advisers--greeted the 1900
freshmen who began Orientation ac-
tivities at 8 a.m. today.
Prof. Philip E. Bursley of the ro-
mance languages department is in
charge of the week's activities. He
is assisted by Don Treadwell, '40, of
the Union, Marcia Connell, '39, of the
League and more than 100 student
Faculty members in the literay
college will ot, as in past years, be
in direct contact with freshmen in
the Orientation activities, the duties
being taken over by studentadvisers.
This system was adopted last year,
for women's Orientation and this
year for men's, replacing one faculty
adviser and one student adviser for
each freshman group. Academic
counselors, each having about 100
freshmen to advise, will be present in
Waterman gymnasium at the time of
registration to aid new students in
classification, and will continue
throughout the year as freshman
counselors. Other schools and colleges
will maintain their respective' sys-
tems, Professor Bursley pointed out.
"Under the new system," he said,.
"the entering student will profit bY
long-range faculty contact and at the'
same time find his induction into the
University eased by the familiar
contact with student advisers who
are mostly sophomores and juniors."
The high point of the week's ac-
tivities, which began- this morning
with consultations between student
adivisers and freshmen groups, Is
the gathering tonight of men In 1 ll1
Auditorium and women in the
League for addresses by University
officials. The men's program vwill
begin at 8 p.m. President Ruthven
and Dean of Students Joseph A.
Bursley will address the 1320 men.
The women's program calls for a
dinner at 6 p.m. in the Ballroom of
the League to be followed by a meet-
ing at which Miss Connell, Jean Hol-
land, '39, president of the League,
President Ruthven and Dean of
Women Alice C. Lloyd will speak.
More than 550 women are expected
to attend.
The necessary round of campus
tours, registration, health examina-
tions and tests will be broken by a
mixer for freshmen men at 8 p.m.
Thursday in the Ballroom of the
Union. Engineering freshmen will
meet at the same time in the main
dining room of the Union.
Athletic Director Fielding H. Yost
will be the principal speaker at the
mixer, which will last for about an
hour, according to Frank Oakes,
Union social director.

To Serve As Intermediary
Between Chief Executive

To lessen the great and continu-
ously increasing burden imposed upon
President Ruthven by the University's
rapid growth, the Board of Regents
last April announced the appoint-
ment of a Provost'to aid the President

"as shall be delegated to him."

At the same time Prof. R Blythe
Stason of the Law School was named
