Ralph Flanders (R-Vt.), as to

McCARTHY quoted Lincoln as

Student opinion will be consid-
ered Tuesday when the Board is
scheduled to hear representatives
of groups concerned in the pro- -
posed changes.
A suggested solution submitted
jointly by Manager of Service En-
terprises Francis C. Shiel, Dean
of Women Deborah Bacon and
Acting Dean of Students Walter
B. Rea will form the basis of dis.
THE PROPOSAL recommends
the following:
1) "That Chicago House in
West Quad (presently occupied by
women) be reestablished (for
men) as a part of South Quad-
rangle by dividing Taylor House
into two units."
2) "The space thus released in
the West Quadrangle remain 'free-
standing' to serve whichever de-
mand is the greater, and that
women have a priority for it in
the fall of 1954-55."
3) "In view of the stated Uni-
versity policy, the special needs of

tered around this proposal which
was finally withdrawn in favor
of the plan to investigate the
whole problem more thorough-
ly from the student point of
view before reaching a decision.
All available expressions of stu-
dent opinion in letters and peti-
tions were presented to the Board.
The joint proposal was prefaced
by a statement of present condi-
tions :
1) "That in a situation where
the demand exceeds the supply,
it has been the policy of the Uni-
versity to place the needs of its
women students first."
2) "That all the thinking of the
Administrative offices of the Uni-
versity is pointed in one direction;
namely, to effect a minimum of
disturbance to established house
groups or institutions."
3) "That before any action can
be taken, careful consideration
must be given to committments
made to the University's alumni
of Chicago and to recommenda-
tions of the Inter-House Council
and Assembly with respect to the
future of Chicago House.
DEAN REA as chairman of the
Board of Governors will meet with
the University alumni group in
Chicago Monday to discuss the
proposal for transfering Chicago
House to South Quad..
Chicago alumni have express-
ed considerable disapproval of
the University's action in con-
verting Chicago House for wom-
en's use last fall.

"We are even more perturbed,
