news of the dorms
By GLORIA NISHON and DAVE LACHENBRUCH
In the men's dorms, 1940 saw manyj
changes and innovations. Most spec-
tacular, of course, were the new
Before September, 1939, fewer than
200 University men lived in the two
residence halls, Fletcher Hall and
Allen-Rumsey House, which offered
the only dormitory facilities for un-
dergraduate men. In September 1939,
seven other houses of the West Quad-
rangle plus Victor Vaughan House,
medical dormitory were opened, in-
creasing the residence halls' enroll-
ment to more than one thousand.
In October of this year the last
link in the chain of residence fa-
cilities for men was opened - the
East Quadrangle, located on East
University Avenue, across the street
from the University High School.
It is still the campus' newest build-.
ing, and is "home sweet home" to
400 male students. The new hall
consists of four separate and dis-
tinct units, housed in one large
building. The units are named after

former instructors in the Univer-
sity - Prescott, Greene, Tyler and
Hinsdale Houses, and each one has
its own separate self-governing
systems. They're all for undergrad-
uates except Hinsdale, which
houses 95 graduate and profession-a
Also new in 1940 is the Chief Resi-
dent Adviser system. Heretofore, each
house (Wenley, Allen-Rumsey, Lloyd,
etc.) has had its own resident ad-
viser, a faculty man. Last year, in
addition, a chief residentadviser was
appointed for each housing unit
(East Quadrangle, West Quadangle)
to supervise personnel. Prof. Joseph
E. Kallenbach of the Political Science
department is the East Quad Chief
and Mr. Charles Peake of the English
department fills the same position in
the West Quad. This system pro-
vides more unity between the houses
of each quadrangle.
Both Quadrangles entered the'
fields of news writing during '40,
the East Quad with its "East Wind"
and the West Quadrangle with
"The Spectator," both of which
contain student-written news, edi-
torials, gossip and cartoons.
The University, in October, opened
a branch library, the freshman study
hall, in the West Quadrangle, con-
taining many reference works re-
quired for freshman courses, thus re-
lieving a considerable amount of con-
gestion in the main libraries and
enabling dorm freshmen to do much
of their studying at home.
Early in the semester the nightly
Louis A. Strauss memorial record
concerts were held in Strauss li-
brary of West Quadrangle, as trib-
ute to the late Professor Strauss of
the English department. These
ccncrts proved so popular that
they were moved to the r~ain
lounge, and since have become a
regular after-dinner habitof many
of the men in the quad.
The East Quad, too, has a musit
appreciation hour - theirs is given
semi-weekly in the Greene House
Lounge. Programs for this hour, to-
gether with comments, are publishedi
weekly in the "East Wind."
.add to the above the usual
social activities, clubs and elec-
tions, and that's 1940 in the dorms.
