Dickinsonian, September 30, 1949

The Union Philosophical Society passes a resolution that allows for the admittance of women for the first time in their 160-year history; they also shift the nature of their discussions from national and international issues to campus-specific topics. The Dickinsonian adds a new column, Brevity, and the position of Sports Editor to their executive board. Campus is mired in a controversy regarding how a surplus in the appropriations fund was spent; Student Senate only said that the money was used "to benefit students." The marching band performs at an away game for the first time since the conclusion of World War II. A total of 64 women pledge the College's four sororities.
