Duane Cites Changes
He explained some of the sug-

cluding freshman and upperelass
houses, increased academic em-
phasis in the residence halls, and
staff changes.
Duane also mentioned the in-
creasing loss of upperclassmen in
residence halls, and said that the
pros and cons of this subject will
be studied.
The IHC Executive Board, com-
posed of the organizations officers,
is presently working with the Uni-
dence hall financing.
State, Federal Aid
Duane said that state and fed-
eral aid are being discussed, es-
pecially with the construction of
the new North Campus dormitories
in view.
In addition to the long-range
residence hall programs, Duane
mentioned experimentation with
new orientation programs which
would place greater emphasis on
the role of the residence halls and
their staffs.
Another internal IHC program,
the revision of the organization's

before the residence balls to be
passed on as -"a constitutional

Early in his testimony, Foote said, "We're four or five years behind
