In fact, many of the boys hid never known that there was such a place called Donnelly until they were informally introduced to it. But since those days the feeling expressed lus been one of contentment. In other w»rds we found a home at Donnelly. On registration day most of us were reticent to join in happy merrymaking i with the fellow in the next bed, whom we did not know. Rather we sought out old classmates and formed a group. This was on the first day. Since then a spirit of unity has permeated the entire hall, joining its members. We a:e now resigned that all are for one, and one is for all. A song, written to the tune of Tannenbaum, was quickly adapted for the Hall; the words for it, thought up with much deliberation, emphasized that we were proud of Donnelly, no matter what others thought. Donnelly Hall, oh Donnelly Hall, Without a doubt the best of all. Our roommates we have quite a few, And all of us are proud of you. Refrain: Donnelly Hall. Oh... etc. Aquinas Hall they think it's nice, But Donnelly Hall Is paradise. The roof it leaks, the doors they squeak, When you come in you cannot sneak. Your walls of green we'll never leave, Unless we're bounced by New Year's Eve. Refrain: Donnelly Hall, Oh... etc. Donnelly boasts of many promising athletes. From exhibitions on Donnelly Memorial Field it is evident that future P.C. basketball teams are going to prove formidable to all their opponents. Perhaps the greatest advantage In being a roomer at Donnelly is the honor attached to it.

This was stated recently by John L. Reavey, Manager of the Providence office of the Veterans Administration, in explaining new VA regulations based on Public Law 610. enacted July 13. A veteran's application for a change of course, or an additional course, must be submitted to the VA regional office handling his records.' Mr. Reavey said If the VA determines he has not previously changed general fields of study, the application will be approved. If a veteran desires to make a second change of general fields of study, he will be informed that he may undergo advisement and guidance. VA will use the results of advisement and guidance to determine whether he has need of an aptitude for the course. If he is not notified of VA's decision within 45 calendar days from the date his application is received in the VA office holding his records, his request for the second change of general flelds will be automatically approved. Mr. Reavey also explained provisions of the new regulations as they affect veterans who have previously changed general fields of study twice and now desire to make a third change. He said: Such a request may be approved only if the veteran establishes need for a short, intensive course which will prepare him for employment in a critical occupation where there is a known shortage of trained workers. The burden of proof rests with the veteran to establish those facts, and a decision will be made on the basis of the evidence of record. elected President.
