Although the Federal Public Housing Authority and the Veterans Administration have done and are doing all they can do to help us, it is certain that many more students are applying for admission to this College than this In Ititution can house. It will hav< to turn away many students; some of them veterans. The college is crowding its dormitories full of students, just as far as is consistent with health standards; it has made additional rooms available in its dormitories.. The apartments built for us by tin* Public Housing Authority are all rented and the thirty five apartments now under construction will not he leady for oc cupaney until November IO. Veterans with families have applied for (-very one of them. All of this add up to the sentence. “The Col loge needs rooms for three types of students;” 1. Rooms in East Ada tor un married students, veterans and non-veterans, who plan to he here for the school year. These rooms 1 should be sufficiently close to the j college that occupants can get their meals in the college dining hall, unless the householder plans to board the roomers. 2. Apartments for the - school year for married students and their families. 3. Apartments for thirty-five veterans* families for two months, or perhaps a little longer, who will occupy the apartments now under construction when these are completed. It should be remembered that; students (annot pay high prices for rooms. In general, $7-SI0 a month per student with two in j a room is about all that they can ! pay. The College w ill go forward if it, together with friends, can pro- i vide housing If it cannot do so. j it will go backward. If you can provide any one of the three types of accommodations named above, call the College Secretary, phone 3040. Very sincerely, A. Linscheid, President ♦ LAWTON. Okla., Aug.
