Why The Crowd
At The Dorms?





The crowded conditions at the men's and women's dormitories point up a vital need of the University and at the same time pose several unanswered questions.
Hie need is obvious more housing facilities for
incoming freshmen. Hut can UK afford a building
construction program that would absorb all the expected increase in student enrollment during the
coming years?
Or is the proposal suggested recently by President Dickey in a speech at Louisville that UK may
have to consider limiting its enrollment in the future the only feasible solution to the problem?
Regardless of the eventual overall program
agreed upon, the situation this year, particularly in
the men's residence halls, shows that more foresight
must be exhibited concerning housing in future
years than was in 19oG.
The women were supposedly warned before coming to Lexington that their residence halls would

be crowded; they came prepared.
The male students received no such warning. As
a result, freshmen were forced to share rooms with
more roommates than either they, or apparently,
university officials expected; sophomores' who came
to the University fully expecting to receive rooms
were turned away at the last minute to ajow freshmen to live in the dorms.
The five men's dorms (Donovan, Bowman, Bradley, Kinkead, and Breckinridge) normally house 915
Latest official figures show there are still 935
students living in these dormitories, and, although
no official' corroboration can be obtained, reports
have indicated there have been quite a few more.
The statistics possibly do not seem so bad when
freshman who
seen on paperT But to a
suddenly acquires a new, unexpected roommate in
a room already none too large, the situation could
be improved upon.
Dormitory rules state freshmen and sophomores
shall live in and eat two meals a day in the dorms
unless excused by the Dean of Men. The rules also
say that if necessity requires, freshmen shall have
preference over sophomores.
Yet, despite the fact that some sophomores were
forced to find other accomodations, some 75 to 90
second year men are still living in the dorms
enough to more than compensate for the reported
20 extra men. Why the distinction?
Dean of Men Leslie L. Martin and dormitory
director Robert Blakeman say they believe enough
freshmen will soon drop out to relieve the situation.
Judging from previous years, this is 'undoubtedly
true. But is it a wise policy to have to depend upon
students quitting school to alleviate any situation,
regardless of what it is?
Dean Martin says the male students will be forewarned of the conditions next year, if they still exist, just as the women students were this year. If
this plan is carried out, it will be a forward step,
and a necessary one.
As was stated, the University may never be able
to build enough dormitories to house all the eligible
freshmen who wish to live there.
If enrollment increases as is expected, other
measures will certainly have to be adopted.
But in the meantime, let's hope that students and
prospective students will be told of existing dormitory conditions, regardless of how crowded, before
they arrive at the Universitynot after.


If the University had a dollar for every cigarette
smoked at the rush parties they could build another
freshman dormitory. It'll take the Creeks and
rushees another two weeks to get rid of that "cigarette hangover."
One of the most ignored rulings on this campus
is the $125 limit placed on sororities during rush
by Panhellenic. One of the basic qualifications for
a rush chairman is that she can count to 125 and
no further.
The Marching One Hundred deserves only the
highest praise after Saturday's exhibition. Those
long, hard days of practice paid off.


Welcome, Ike!r
Regardless of party affiliation or personal belief,
each student at the University should make every
effort to be present at Memorial Coliseum Monday
when President Dwight D. Eisenhower will speak.
Although the president's speech is admittedly a
major campaign one, designed to influence voters
in a state designated as "key" by Democrats and
Republicans alike, it is still a signal honor to both
UK and the city of Lexington that Mr. Eisenhower
should appear here.
It should be explained that the coming of the
president in this election year does not foredoom
the university to the role of a political arena until
