went on record as opposing "any

any women's houses in the quads
Passed unanimously with one
women's member abstaining, the
resolution also offered three pos-
sible solutions to the problem of
increased housing for women:
1) that more women be permit-
ted to live outside residence halls.

INTRODUCED by East Quad
President Stan Levy, '55, the res-
olution "strongly 'urges that the
Board of Governors of the Resi-
dence Halls carefully consider the
broad ramifications and conse-
quences of any further conversion
of men's houses to women's."
The action followed 45 min-
utes discussion during which
IHC President Roger Kidston,
'56L, left the chair to speak in
favor of the motion.
Pointing out the importance of
the problem to the entire men's
residence halls system, Kidston
said there was an equal possibility
that any one of the houses in the
quads might be converted for use
by women, not just in East Quad.
"If I had thought that when Ty-
ler and Prescott Houses in East
Quad were converted for women it
would mean real coed living, I
would have been the first to help
them move in," Kidston declared.
"The real reason for all three con-
versions (including C h i c a g o
House) was economic."
"WE CAN fill men's residence
halls witlh men," Kidston said,
"The question is should women put
men out of the halls simply be-
cause more women keep coming to

Coeds Retaliate: Give Own
Opinions of Griping Males
By MURRY FRYMER
Generally agreeing that Michigan men "aren't such gods!" cam-

compaints about women earlier this week.
The girls were a bit more discrete in their gripes, many refusing;
to give their names, but inferring that the men would hear the com-

How can they expect the girls to smile first? The fellows are all ice-M

Miss Boland added that although men couldn't approach any
girl and talk to her in a large city, it was perfectly all right on a
