Residence IIJal
H o0.se imothers
"Being housemother of 1 boys
is just like mothering your own chil-
dren," Mrs. Lura D. Niles, house
director of Michigan House, one of
the eight houses which comprise the
west quadrangle of residence halls,
declared in an interview yesterday.3
"Their., problems and troubles are,
ours," Mrs. ,Niles said. ,'In addition
to acting as house director-that's1
our official title, social director and
house mother, our duties often take
on the character of sewing on but-
tons, straightening ties just before
that crucial date, listening to tales
of misunderstandings with this girl
or that one or ecstatic descriptions
of newly-found loves."
"One of our most important du-
ties," she continued," is watching
over the boys 'health. If one of the
boys is reported..sick in bed, we take
his temperature . and if necessary
ship him off to the Health S evice;
that it, if our two staff physicians-
don't have. the necessary. facilities to.
cope with the situation., If.he is
to remiain in bed, we supervise his
meals and order trays for them."
"Another one of our. important du-
ties is that of working as social di-
rector with the ,social ~chairman in
each house,._pta the piespt,ime

much. They all cooperated beauti-
fully.'' A ,compact kitchenette placed,
behind what resenrbled closet doors
was revealed by Mrs Herdman as
the source of coffee andl tea-making
by the boys, at ,iigt " when they
like to come in and talk."
