The roof over the three-story
green clapboard house at 1416 Hill

heterogenous student groups on
The building, Friends Center,
houses undergraduate and gradu-
ate students from India, China,
Japan, Korea, Turkey, Poland and
the United States. The Center is
an international co - operative
This year, 16 coeds live, in the
house and 10 men eat lunch and

discuss many topics of interna-
Lights often burn late, not from
studying, but from exchange of
opinions that ignore time.
Besides sharing ideas, the work
load is shared. Since the house is
owned by the Friends Center
Meeting (Quaker organization),
students are responsible for its
The house was painted and re-
decorated by the Friends when
they bought it three years ago.
After suggestions from students,
additional decorating was done. A
homey note to the atmosphere is
the cozy fireplace and hearth.
Reproductions of Picasso and
Matissee adorn the walls of an
attractive living room. The den
has a varied selection of books
donated by the Friends.
Cooking to Scrubbing
It takes approximately 100
hours of work a week to keep the
house running. "This boils down
to: about four hours work per-
person," remarks one of the resi-
dents. Coeds' duties range from
cooking to scrubbing floors. Men's
vary from washing dishes to
working in the yard.
Other odd Jobs are done by
house rule violators who receive
work penalties. In addition; the
group has a "fun" work party
once a month.

OH HOW SHE CAN PLAY!-A typical sight at the Friends Center
is students gathering to sing.
Living in the Center certainly
isn't all work. A common sight be-
