Singing Grace In H.-P. Dining Hall.
OWCIP - ClLjl'l9 e
Howard-Payne Hall, the largest women's dormi-
tory, is the scene of many unusual happenings, in
addition to the everyday routines. On date nights,
the newly redecorated parlors are used for a variety
of purposes-tense card games: occasional study-
ing: numerous radios, each playing a different tune:
and often times just 'intimate conversation. Although
the dorm is bedlam at times Cespecially the night
of a dancel, a special study hall on the ground floor
enables conscientious students to study at all hours,
day or night. 'X 0
One of the freshman duties is answering the phone,
and when it rings many anxious ears wait to see
whose name is called. Several times this year the
calls have been for a young lady named "Heidi"
who wanders around from the ground floor to fourth
quite often, even though she has four feet and a
tail. When her owners become anxious, she is paged
all over the dorm until she finally is sent on her
way. Other special students have lived illegally
in the dorm during the year-kittens, cocker pups,
chickens, rabbits and other miscellaneous verte-
Howard-Payne is governed? by hall- representa-
tives, a house council, and the dean of women. The
dormitory's many traditions, such as the holiday
dinners and the custom of staying up all night be-
fore Christmas Vacation, and its variety of moods
-from bedlam to tranquility, make it a wonderful
place to gain never to-be-forgotten experiences in
the art of' getting along with others.

The building on the campus that resembles an
English country home is McMurry Hall, the dormi-
tory for men. Boys who are deaf fare better than
those with sensitive hearing here, and light sleepers
have resorted to cotton ear plugs to 'escape some
of the noise. Several games of skill are popular at
the dormitory-bowling down the long cement halls
at coke bottles, dropping bags of water from second
or third floor windows upon unsuspecting classmates
below. Firecrackers, too, are favorite playthings of
Central men. Also, McMurry is generally the start-
ing place for all the "no school tomorrow" carn-
paigns. ' ,
The front yard of McMurry Hall in the fall and
spring seems to be a community recreation center.
A few men try their hand at golf, some play base-
ball, while others compete in determined but friendly
touch football games.
McMurry has a functioning governmental system.
composed of elected student representatives, in co-
operation with the dean of men. Although McMurry
Hall may be a wild house occasionally, it does have
its quiet moments, too. lt is generally aqgreed TCI!
one year of living in McMurry is a practi al les on
in sociology, worth much more than a six hour
course in the subject.
