Co-eds Vote to Sing To Masculine Students
The OSC [Oregon State College] women's house president's council met yesterday and voted to continue the policy of serenading men's living organizations, Lurah Slocum, president, said today.
     The serenading policy, which has gained an unfavorable attitude with some college officials, will be continued as in previous years. However, the council passed some restrictions on the function.
     Girls houses will schedule all their serenades in the dean of women's office. These serenades may take place anytime before closing hours.
