It's equipment, rather than housing
space, that has the Inter-Cooperative
Council worried.

ing approximately 150 couples. The
Union Dance floor can fit in 250
couples and'it usually does. There's a
dance every Saturday night at the
Masonic Temple, which can take 150
couples. Very few of them are Uni-
versity students, however.
Maybe all you want to do is go to
a quiet place and drink beer. Well,
you can drink beer, anyway--IF
'you're over 21 and have the neces-
sary papers to prove it.
The seating capacity of all Ann
Arbor taverns is liberally estimated at
900.
,The official capacities released by
the State, Michigan and Whitney
theaters reach a grand total 4,850.
Incidentally, if you're interested,
there's a night club listed in the yel-
low pages of the Ann Arbor phone
directory. It's called the Villa Bee
and it's 35 miles away in Jackson.
You can call it by phone for 40 cents
tax included.
Vets Advised on Changing
insurance Beneficiaries
Veterans interested in changing
beneficiaries on National Service Life
Insurance and U. S. Government In-
surance policies are cautioned to be
sure of correct procedure.
Scanty information is one of the
prime headaches of all VA insurance
offices. Their files contain 150,000
Johnsons, 120,000 Browns and 13,000
Smiths - 8,000 of them without mid-
dle .initials.
Completion of VA Form 336 assures
all of the information needed for a
properly completed change of bene-
ficiary, the VA advises.

licity chairman 'f the Council,
said yesterday, "until we get more
desks, dressers and beds. We're
sharing desk drawers right now."
He pointed out that besides being
hampered by the difficulty of obtain-
ing furnishings, the Council is held
back because most of its money must
be used for up-keep and to pay for
three of the houses now being operat-
ed.
Cooperative houses have always
been doubled-up in a sense, Gam-
Zon explained, having used double-
decker beds from the beginning.
With more equipment, however, the
houses would be able to' provide for
still more "students.
The unprecedented list of students
who want to board at the cooperative
houses creates another problem. Be-
cause of the lack of utensils, the
houses will be able to board only 40
students in addition to those living
in the five cooperatives. The cooper-
ative system now includes 56 women
and 50 men.
Engineers Plan
Fall Program
Women's Society Will

Regular programs dealing ith

planned this fall by the Women's En-
gineering Society.
In addition to securing several
prominent speakers, the Society ex-

cial contact among women on campus
who have a common interest in en-
gineering studies and activities. The
Society also offers guidance for those
new in the engineering field.

Geddes, phone 7859 or Thelma Dyer,

Student veterans who are enrolled
in the University under the provi-
sions of Public Law 16 may borrow
amounts not exceeding $100 from
the Veterans Administration to meet
immediate personal financial obliga-
tions.
Eligible veterans may apply for
the loan at either the local VA office
in the basement of the Rackham
building or at the regional office of
the VA in Deroit. Those applying in
Detroit can obtain their money im-
mediately, while applications made
here will have to be processed
through the Detroit office.
Only veterans enrolled under Pub-
lic Law 16 may obtain loans, since
there are no loan provisions for vet-
erans obtaining benefits from the
GI Bill (Public Law 346).

THE MICHIGAN DAILY
-A vital part of every

personal financial obligations for at
least 60 days as a safeguard against
a possible delay in the payment of
subsistence allowances, the Veterans
Administration Branch Office in
Columbus, O., announced today.
Any student veterans who has not
yet received subsistence checks for
the spring and summer terms should
notify the Detroit office of the Vet-
erans Administration of his present
address W. L. Wallace, Director of
the Veterans Guidance Center, an-
nounced.
Under the provisions of the re-
cently enacted Public Law 679, all
veterans receiving subsistence pay-
ments under the GI Bill must submit
a report of all earnings to the Vet-
erans Administration, Wallace said.
Contrary to the opinion of many
student veterans, the purpose of the
GI Bill is merely to aid the veteran
in training.
