Two Boys Room
In Girls Dorm
It finally happened! Two
freshman boys have been assigned
to girls' dormitory rooms. Pat
Bonds and Duane Lindsey both
of Stamford sent in written ap-
plications for dormitory space
early in the summer.
Somehow Lindsey's signature
was not too plain and the H-SU
dean of wqmen Alice Berkshire
interpreted it to be "Dewanna
a girl's name if she ever saw one."
Pat Bonds also sounded like a
girl's name under the circum-
stances. So Miss Berkshire assigned the
pair to Behrens Hall freshman
girls' dorm and wrote them that
their roommates would be Glenda
Hudnall of Hermleigh and Cherry
Lee Dollins of Waco.
With tongues in cheeks the
boys took over from there. They
started corresponding with the
girls making plans for the fall
semester and even going so far
as to agree with them on a
scheme for room decorations.
Finally with the fall semester
rapidly approaching the Stam-
ford youths decided the joke had
gone far enough. They informed
Miss Berkshire of the true situa-
tion. And when freshman orien-
tation opened Monday the two
were safely quartered in Fergu-
son Hall the freshman men's
And the girls had new room-
mates! Coeds Were Given
When the Hardin - Simmons
University co-eds arrived on the
campus this week they found a
new handbook to help guide them
through the coming year's activi-
ties. The handbook "Your Guide to
Gracious Living" will be issued
to all girls enrolling in the uni-
versity this fall according to
Alice Berkshire dean of women.
Miss Berkshire compiled the
booklet after "reviewing many
similar publications from uni-
versities and colleges throughout
the nation. An effort was made
to include the best from each
booklet in theH-SU guide she
"The Handbook is dedicated to
friendship a living spirit which
inhabits all the halls. May it
become a part of you and bring
you closea to those with whom
you live" the dean of women
wrote in her foreword.
The university's "standards of
citizenship" are outlined in the
handbook. Topics covered in-
clude calling hours telephone
permissions manner and conduct
dress academic standards illness
and emergencies safety automo-
biles regulations dormitory
councils and student hostesses.
A hand chart shows the type
of clothing suitable for such
events as athletic contests teas
