Army Finds Feather
Carpet in Fraternity

Columbia's New Star


"Was this the campus zoo before?"
Puzzled Pvt. Irving Green of
Brooklyn, newly arrived member of
the ASTP engineering group, asked
this question as he and 29 other
men detailed to make a fraternity,
house taken over by the Army fit
for occupancy found the entire house
littered with feathers four inches
Feathers Litter. Floor
Apparently the previous occupants
had reveled in a pillow fight to end
all pillow fights before they left and
thought nothing of the fact that it
took 20 men two days to capture all
the scurrying bits of white.
This is Just one incident that
has made the task of finding hous-
ing for more than 500 incoming
soldiers in an already overflowink
city an amusing one for Capt. Ross
Zartman, post Quartermaster offi-
"We ran against a similar prob-
lem in Delta Sigma Delta, the den-
tal fraternity," Captain Zartman said
Teeth Left Behind
"The first day I went there I
found a huge box on the living room
table filled with teeth. Apparently
one of the students had forsaken his
hobby of teeth-collecting when he
"The next day when I went over,
the teeth were still there - but
someone had scattered them all
over the room. One of the boys
summed up the situation very aptly
with the remark 'Boy, what a party
that must have been!"
Army Cleans Up
This job of cleaning out eleven fra-
ternities was taken over by the Army
since the University did not have
enough help to do it themselves.
"We hope to have janitors soon
yho can take over," Captain Zart-.
man said, "but in the,-,meantime the
men, who are 'studying here under
the ASTP engineering and language
area programs,.will have to, sandwich
the work in themselves between the

Truckloads of Junk Moved
."Sandwiching the work in" con-
sists of mowing lawns, trimming
bushes, pulling dandelions, removing
nails from the middle of the hall-
way-Pvt. Lenny Ligenza of Chi-
cago, also in the engineering group,
offered the solution that they must
have been practicing up for service
in India as Yogi experts-dismant-
ling bars and excavating whiskey and
beer bottles from innumerable- nooks
and crannies to the tune of five
"A little grumbling was caused
by the fact that the first men to
arrive were detailed to clean all
the houses," Captain Zartman said.
"But, in order to make the task
more agreeable, we told them that
was probably where they would
live, so it was worth their while to
clean it well," he said.
"That is, we told them that until
one man said in a very pathetic tone,
'But sir, xou've already told us that
four times.' "
Men Leave Furniture
"But the job really hasn't been so
difficult," Captain Zartman said.
"We asked the fraternities to leave
us as much furniture as they could
and they cooperated whole-hearted-
ly. The rest of the furniture has
been stored in one room of the house.
,,"Moreover, many of the fraterni-
ties have recreation rooms in the
basement that we may use, and that
will be a big help," he said.
"We're trying to complete arrange-
ments for coke, candy and cigarette
machines in each house," Captain
Zartman added.
A quartermaster's job is a trying
one at times, Captain Zartman
s#id, but- now we've got these new
men pretty well set up.
' My prlcipal problems now' are
more trivial ones, such as finding
a place for the men to leave their
books at mealtime. They all go
straight to the Union- for lunch
fromgtheir classrooms and have
difficulty manipulating trays and
books at the same time, he ext-
.'Thus., .while the rest of the Uni-
versity goes about its business, Cap-
ain Zartman and his aides are kept
busy ironing out the affairs of the
Qusrtermaster's Office.

Its backers asserted the war agencies
are full of policy-making officials
on whom the Senate -should have a
chance to pass. Opponents said it
was a patronage grab.
The House not only rejected the
proposal but voted down, 260 to 69,
a compromise to set the salary figure
at $5,500 and apply the provision
only to newly-hired employes.
The Senate's recessio from its de-
mand cleared the way to the White
House for, a $2,911,697,224 appropri-
ation to run the war agencies in the
12 months beginning July 1. The bulk
of the big appropriation is for the
merchant shipbuilding program, but
funds also are included to run such
agencies as the Office of Price Ad-
ministration (OPA) and the Office
of War Information (OWD.
It set a precedent, too, for the Sen-
ate to withdraw a similar amendment
it had attached to the $1,137,167,010
Labor-Federal Security Supply Bill.
When this was done the measure was
shot on to the White House, clearing
the Congressional calendar of all
major appropriations bills.
