TEMPORARY QUARTERS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Recent announcements from the office of the School of Business Administration, suggesting that undergraduates, unable to procure rooms in the college draw, apply for accommodations in the new dormitories across the river, have provoked considerable discussion among members of the University. For fear has been voiced that this is but another expression of the tendency to deploy members of the junior and senior class into quarters so mutually remote as to hinder the proper and necessary community experience of less scattered apartments.

Naturally the Business School is proffering these rooms in a generous effort to keep more people from learning boarding house habits before the extra-collegiate necessity of employing them. And there is every reason why those who are faced with the choice of quarters remote from comfort or remote from college should not choose the latter. Nor is there any just criticism of the Business School for having such unneeded room. The administration of the School has realized that immediate expansion is the poorest method of insuring sane development. And no one can belie the wisdom of that.

Indeed, the only real reason for a definite fear is that such deployment may become traditional or customary, and such deployment is contrary to the best interests of the college, such interests as the Student Council's Committee on Education has attempted to portray. The Business School is being moved over the river that it may best enjoy full and wholesome development un-compromised by any of those inhibitions which confinement within the limits of the college continually demands. So it must ultimately become definitely divorced from the college. Therefore those who do go over the river from the college next fall must institute no custom. A Cis-Charles college colony must remain as a temporary asset, not a permanent liability.
