Loss of Quorum Not Anticipated
With the loss of at least six of its members, Student Legislature

legislature is not known, early estimates indicate the number may
total eleven. If 19 of the 40 legislators fail to return, SL may be
forced to operate without a quorum, constituted b'y a simple majority
of its eligible mermbers.

held by Enid Stenn, '55, Keith Beers, Grad., Bob Perry, '53E, Al

500 over 1952
Increase in Freshman Numbers
Cited as Major Cause of Rise
University enrollment figures began to move toward the pre-
dicted 17,500 mark Wednesday as new and returning students went
through the first day of the fall registration.
With the expected increase in student population over last year
close to 500, the biggest boost has come from the new freshman class.
Here a three-to-two men-woman ratio is expected to ease the
problem of the dateless male.
* * * *
IN A COUNT made early in the week it was found that 1,705
freshmen men and 1,209 freshmen women had already reported on
campus. This would put the total freshman enrollment at 2,969 or al-
most 600 more than in the class one year ago.
The total new student enrollment including freshmen and
transfers is expected to be about 5,000.
University officials emphasized that no enrollment figures can be
considered official until the final tallies are made early next week.

Housing Pinch Hits Campus-


With the campus population ex-
pected to swell to 17,500 by the end
of the week, signs of a housing
pinch began to appear as students
poured into town.
Chicago House ii West Quad-
rangle has been turned into wom-
en's housing quarters to accom-
modate the unexpectedly large
women enrollment. One-hundred
twenty women will be housed
It is the first time since its
opening in 1939 that the quad-;
rangle has been used for this pur-
pose and brings to three the num-;
ber of men's dwellings occupied
all or in part by women, accord-
ing to Francis C. Shiel, manager'
of Service Enterprises.
Prescott and Tyler Houses in
East Quadrangle were turned over
to women last year as the result
of the increased women's enroll-1
ment then.

ets have been built and desks, beds
and other furnishings installed.
In addition, the University
recently increased capacities in
all residence hall houses by 467:
persons by converting large
doubles into triple rooms and
large singles into double rooms.
The squeeze on women's hous-
ing has been pat ticularly appar-
ent in the temporary quarters set
up for women in the Health Serv-
ice and recreation rooms of wom-
en's dorms.l
Residence hall officials said
that the housing problem will
probably solve itself by the be-
ginning of ilext week when a

In past years a simi'ar problem
has adjusted itelf within the first
two or three weeks of scuool.
The problem of women's hous-
ing arose from an unexpected,
late-hour increase in the number
of women's applications. Previous-
ly, student enrollment had been
expected to lean more heavily to-
ward the men.
