COMPLAINTS-West Quad President Bill Diener, '50E, left, dis-
cusses a student survey of living conditions in the Quad with
residence halls business manager Francis C. Shiel. The Quad
Council made the survey because of a "constant parade of resident
complaints."
Lit- School
Senior Announcements

complaints ranging from un-
c o m f o r t a b l e double-decker
bunks to long cafeteria lines.
Council representatives were es-
pecially fearful of an overload
in the cafeterias if South Quad-
rangle residents are required to
eat their meals in the West
Quad next Fall.
Questioned Quad men over-
whelmingly condemned the
"Navy" tables which serve as desks
in some of the rooms. They also
hit "inadequate" closet space and
the lack of bookcases.
COUNCIL SERVICE committee
chairman Tom Massnick, '50. as-
serted that the type of "home
away from home" group living
embodied in the Michigan House
Plan could be realized only if the
"normal amount of people were
living in the Quad."
"While the West Quad was
built to accommodate 900 men,
it now houses well over 1300,"
Massnick noted.
Shiel agreed that many of the
problems result from ,overcrowd-
ing. But he said there would be
no relief next fall nor until the
new South Quadrangle is com-
pleted.
"We are always interested in
getting constructive criticism, es-
pecially when it comes from repre-
sentative student groups such as
the West Quad Council," Shiel
added.
A vast majority of the Quad
residents reported poor lighting,
soiled short blankets, dusty easy
chairs and faulty radiator valves
making it impossible to adjust
room temperatures.
