HOUSING AT ISC BACK TO NORMAL Several Fraternities Again Serving Meals Ames--Return'' of their former housing facilities to civilian men students at Iowa State college has seen nearly complete. Twenty of ine 27 fraternity houses are now functioning, and 80 civilians have moved into the north wing of Friley hall. The remainder of the dormitory houses all the navy V-12 students enrolled here Housemothers have been obtained for all fraternity houses now in operation, according to Mrs. Madge I. McGlade, director of residence. Several fraternities also are serving meals, some in lo-operation with nearby groups. The average number of men in each fraternity is somewhat below normal. However, L. O. Stewart, interfraternity council ad- wser, says that alumni will probably help student chapters through the reorganization period. Stewart says the fraternities now are functioning nearly as before, except for lower membership. Membership now, as always, require approval by the college and maintenance of certain scholastic standards. The fraternity houses were returned to the men when women students who had occupied them moved back into dormitories vacated by the navy last quarter. Women students now occupy all 8 dormitories, B a r t . o n , Elm, Welch, Freeman, Oak, Mary Lyon, Roberts and Birch Halls. While women students occupied their houses, 'fraternity men lived in other residences near the campus. Through the shifts, comfortable housing facilities were maintained for all students, both men and women, even when navy enrollment was at its peak. Mrs. McGlade stated she feels \yomen learned valuable lessons living in smaller groups in the fraternity' houses. "The small groups have been conducive to the development of leadership and initiative." Women in the 9 sorority houses have occupied their residences continuously since the start of the war. They helped to make facilities available for women students while the dormitories were occupied by the navy by housing more women and providing meals for freshman pledges.
