PAYING OFF DEBT:
Dorm Rates, Costs
Continue Steady Rise

By JAMES BOW
The $795 average yearly rate for
a double room in the men's resi-
dence halls represents many costs
to the University as well as a size-
able sum of the student's expenses.
The costs of running University
residence halls have risen, and so
have room and board rates. Annual
rates have risen an average $75
since the academic year 1955-56
when double room rates were $720.1
In making application for resi-
dence hall rooms, students must
sign a contract stipulating that
they will pay their full costs for
one year,
Residence halls, whicl house
some 3,500 men, have been built
under the "self-liquidating" sys-
tem. This means that for the past
25 years money has been borrowed
through revenue bonds to run the
halls. The bonds are paid off by
income received from operating
the dormitory.
No state money has been used in
the halls; the funds were either
borrowed or else came from gifts
or Federal grants.
.Paying off the debt is only one
cost which must be met, and rep-
resents about 18 per cent of each
dollar the student pays. The big-
gest item in the residence hall dol-
lar is salaries and wages, which
come to about 37 per cent,

To Meet Tonight
The Student Association for In-
tercultural Living will hold a din-
ner meeting at 6 p.m. tonight in
the Union. The group will din-
cuss both its aims and fall plans
during the meeting, according to
Torre Bissell, '60, club co-chair-
man.

Food amounts to about 26 per
cent, of the imaginary pie, with
uitilities, laundry, repairs, and
supplies filling in the rest.
The use of the self-liquidating
system in the residence halls began
when the University received a
Federal grant from the Public
Works Administration in the late
1930's, which represented 45 per
cent of the total cost of building
West Quadrangle, Stockwell Hall,
East Quadrangle and Victor Vau-
ghan House.
With increasing 'enrollment, the
University is constantly seeking
new sources of financing. Mary
1Iarkley Hall, a women's residence
now under construction, will cost
approximately $6,000,000.
