Okay New
A University calendar for ; the
ars 1960-61 and 1961-62, with
ly "minor changes" from the one
be used this fall, was approved
the University Board of Regents
The biggest change in the calen-
r is the lengthening by about
ur days of the period between
e end of Christmas vacation and
e end of classes for the first
The period has in the past been
Iled too short to accomplish
uch in the classroom.
The new provision allows the
cond semester sehedule to run
out one week later than the
hiedule for the 1959-60 year.

of the administration to serve on
the Committee.
The Vice-President for Student
Affairs will also sit on the com-
mittee as an ex-officio member
without vote, as will he ninth
member, a University alurmnus
appointed by the president.
Criteria for review will now
include procedural irregularities,
jurisdictional questions or "un-
reasonable action" on the part of
The changes in the Board in
Review are not the only altera-
tions made in the original plan
by the Clarification Committee,
although they are perhaps the
largest ones.
The functions of the Council,
listed in the original Plan, have;
been revised somewhat in the
process of clarification. The first
change in- the section on "Func-
tions" modifies the phrase in the
original Plan which reads "In ac-
cordarice with Regental and ad-
ninistrative policy" to "In ac-
cordance with Regental policy.

but it will cumulatively increase
each quarter."
Use' Quarter System
The Dearborn Center will opern
ate on a quarter system the year
around, Stirton said. "Each quar-
ter is identical with the others,
and we will have no high or low'
spots as far as enrollment fiuctu-
ation- goes.
"We are going to accept enroll-
ment applications until the day
before classes begin for the Sep-
tember quarter. We can do this
because we aren't crowded yet;
we still have room for more,"
Stirton said.
Last year's Flint College enroll-
ment was approximately '400 stu-
dents, and officials expect enroll-
ment at that unit to remain steady
for this year.
Elsie Fuller, assistant dean of
women, explained that the dean of
women's office would accept hous-
ing applications until the admis-
sions office put a limit on the
number of applications they could
Creates Vacancies
Last year, Mrs. Fuller said, clos-
ing down Jordan Mall for plumb-
ing repairs created "vacancies,"
because the Jordan space was not
actually utilized; the women who
would have lived in Jordan Hall
were moved into Mary Markley
dormitory, and thereby reduced
the capacity of Mary Markley by
that number.
Also, she continued, there were
about 100 spaces in Mary Markley
that were not ready for occupancy
by the time students moved in last
fall, and when these were finished,
the dean of women's office allowed
some women from Victor Vaughan
and Couzens to move in, thereby
creating vacancies in the latter
This year, Mrs. Fuller empha-
sized, there will be room for all
of the women students who must
live in University. dormitories, and
the dean of women's office does
not anticipate any vacancies.
To Close Mosher.
Just as they did last year with
Jordan Hall, though; the Univer-
sity will close down Mosher Hall
for repairs, and install the for-
mer Mosher residents in Mary.
Markley for this year, which will
again reduce the actual Markley
capacity by about 250.
University women students, for
the most part, are housed in Uni-
versity dormitoies or sorority
houses and annexes, with a much
sinaller percentage of women liv-

ing in cooperative houses, league
houses and apartments.
By far the largest dormitory,
Mary Markley is also the newest.-
With a capacity of 1,170 students,,
Markley sits atop a hill behind the
other women's dormitories on
"The Hill," and was first opened
for occupancy last fall.
Unique Residence
Fletcher Hall, which houses 79
students, offers a unique way of
living for women students who
desire a room, but who may want
to eat their meals elsewhere than
in 'the dormitory. It offers resi-
dents the opportunity to take a
meal job if they desire.
University cooperatives - Hen-
derson, Geddes and Cheever -
combine the advantages of small=
group living with economy. Wom-
en students work a few hours each
week in the house, and in return
they pay a much reduced rate of
room and, board.
Geddes is the smallest of the
three University cooperatives with
26 students, while Cheever has 29
and Henderson is the largest with
30 residents.
Operating under the University
dormitory systembut with a pri-
vate bequest, Martha 'Cook dormi-
tory houses 151 women in a stately
residence next door to the Law
Quadrangle, which was also the
result of William Cook's bequest.
Sororities Build
Sorority houses. and their 'an-
nexes are expected to house ap-
proximately 1,300 women this
year, Elizabeth Leslie,. assistant
dean of women, said.
A number of houses have in-
creased their capacity by moving,
building additions to existing
houses, or acquiring annexes, she
Alpha Gamma Delta sorority is
one which has added on to the
existing house, Mrs.- Leslie, noted.
By constructing a facade and
joining the annex to the main
house next door, the Alpha Gams
have increased the capacity of
their house from 40 women to 72,
although they plan to house only
65 women this fall.
Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority
has also added to their existing
house, and thereby increased the
capacityl to 63. Last year the
sorority could house only 50
Alpha Xi Delta sorority has
built a brand-new house for its
members, and will this year house
65 women in it. The previous
capacity of the sorority was 18
in the main house, and 35 in its
annex; the new, house has a capa-

city of 70, although all
will not be utilized.

the spacel

Phi Mu sorority has purchased
the Phi Chi fraternity house, and'
will be able to house all its mem-
bers in one building, although it
will not actually have more room
than it did previously. Last year,
the sorority housed 22 members in
the main house and 22 in the
annex, and this year the new
house will hold 43. members.
Plan Annexes
Kappa Delta and Chi Omega
sororities are both hoping to have
their own annexes; Kappa Delta
will house 10 in the annex they
are planning to buy, in addition to
42 members in the main house,
while Chi Omega can house 50
in the main residence and hopes:
to put nine in its annex.
According to Mrs. Leslie, the
dean of women's office is, still
placing transfer students in- some
of the sorority houses, but "all'
spaces in the houses and annexes
will be filled."
The three.. men's dormitories
have a combined capacity of 3,328
students; individually, East Quad-
rangle has a Apacity of 1,050,
West.Quadrangle has a capacity
of 1,049 and South Quadrangle,
the newest of the men's;dormitor-
ies, has a capacity of 1,229.
As they did last year, Tyler
House and Prescott.House in East
Quadrangle will serve as graduate
and transfer houses, respectively.

Tyler House has a capacity of 116
students, and Prescott House will
hold 121. Frederick House in South
Quadrangle will also be a transfer
house, with a capacity of 59 stu-
Assistant Dean of 4en William
Cross predicted that the 'number
of men living in fraternity houses
would be approximately 1,250 to
1,300 this fall.
