Dorm Life Proves Exciting
For East Quadrangle Coeds,:





Visitors to East Quadrangle are
often surprised and delighted to
see the extent of coeducational liv-
ing there.
Take Gloria, for example. She
was invited to the University for
a weekend by a girlfriend who lived
in East Quad. As her friend and
she walked into the quad, Gloria
looked around the concourse in
"I thought this was a girls'
dorm," she said to her friend Lois.
"What are all these men doing
"Oh, them!" Lois glanced at
the males draped around on
benches. "They live here, too."
Gloria was very surprised, but
rather than appear naive, she said
casually, "How inconvenient. Don't
they get in the way?"
"We get used to them," Lois
yawned. "Having men around is
one of the advantages of living in
Prescott and Tyler Houses. Many
East Quad romances started in
the main concourse."
Gloria looked around the con-
course. "So I see," she nodded.
Study Hall
"We see these men all the time,"
Lois told her. "We have a coed
study hall, a coed snack bar, a

"But when do they study?" ask-
ed Gloria.
People Always Studying
"Oh, all the time. Our study
hall is so handy and so comfort-
able that people can't help but
study. Look!"
They went into the study hall.
Every table was filled. People
looked up from their books and
frowned as the door squeaked. Lois
smiled at a man who was making
a map and waved at a coed study-
ing astronomy.
Quiet Hours Enforced
"Quiet hours are strictly ob-
served here," Lois told Gloria as
they backed out hurriedly.
Gloria was impressed. "Every-
thing is so handy," she said. "Be-
sides your snack bar and the study
hall there are stores and restaur-
ants right down the street and
the campus is so close, too."
"But how is the, food here?"
Gloria asked. "I'd be afraid that
I'd be hungry all the time."
"You'd never have to worry
about that!" Lois laughed. "The
food in East Quad is excellent in
"Well!" Gloria exclaimed. "All
that, and men, too! Women living
in East Quad are certainly lucky."

Why are there more women than
Smen in the United States today?
The principal reasons have to
do with health improvements over
the past decades and with immi-
gration, according to Dr. Louis I.
Dublin, statistician and consultant
on health and welfare for the In-
stitute of Life Insurance.
In the past, the United States
grew largely from immigration,
the majority of immigrants being
men. There was always an "ex-
cess" of men, which is character-
istic of a relatively young coun-
Immigration Has Decreased
However, immigration has de-
creased in the past 30 years so
the trend in the American popu-
lation has changed direction.
Marked progress against diseases
that are often more fatal to wo-
men than men, and the virtual
elimination of the risks of child
bearing have women outnumber-
ing men, for the first time in his-
tory. ,
An important advance has been
the steady conquest of dangers
that accompany childbirth. Most
mothers today have their babies
born in hospitals where emergen-
cies can be taken care of swiftly
and safely.
There have also been major ac-
complishments in the treatment
of diabetes, certain tumors and
other diseases which affect wo-
Parents Watch Children Grow
With men as well as women liv-
ing longer, parents have been able
to watch their children grow up
and enjoy retirement together.
From birth on, statistics show

that women outlive men. Today,
on the average, women live five
to six years longer than men. The
result is that widows greatly out-
number widowers in the popula-
General progress has been made
in the financial security of wi-
dows. They are in a better posi-
tion to maintain their own homes
even when they must bear sole re-
sponsibility for raising young chil-
