Frosh Weekend's Teams
To Hold Meeting at League

WAA's Golf Club To Hold
Reorganizational Meeting

The central committees of both
the Maize and Blue teams for
Frosh Weekend will hold a mass
meeting at 8 p.m. tomorrow in the
League Ballroom for all freshman
women! interested in working on
this year's project.
At the meeting students will
draw for membership on one of
the two competing teams and vol-
unteer to work on committees.
The Blues will present their
annual dance and floorshow May
8 with Maize planning their pro-
gram for the following night.
After the teams get organized,
Marcia Welch, '62, co-publicity
chairman for Maize, said they will
start planning for the competition
for best floorshow, decorations
and publicity campaigns built
around central themes.
Publicity campaigns will prob-
ably begin next week, Miss Welch
said, after the teams have chosen
the themes for their programs.
Traditionally well-:guarded secrets
until the publicity plans have been
completed, themes last year were
"Magne-Maize" and "Bluetopia."
The winning team, chosen on
the basis of originality of the skit
and music in the filoorshow, ticket
sales, program design and publi-
city will have its name engraved
on th winner's plaque which re-
mains in the League Undergradu-
ate Office.
The purpose of the traditional
project, Miss Welch said, is to
"unite the freshman women in a
class project promoting friendship
and cooperation, teach the stu-
dent the art of working together
on committees and acquaint first
year students with the League."
Its present form was established
in 1949, but the program actually

began in the 1920's as Freshman
Spread, she explained. Later, the
freshman class presentation un-
derwent a "succession of changes,"
she continued, including pageants,
plays, mardi gras and even ice-
cream socials.
ICC 'Co-op Week'
Features Series
Of Open Houses
"Anyone who thinks that co-
operative houses are only cheap
places to live is very wrong," said
Neil Munro, '60, president of the
Inter-Cooperative Council.
"The resident in a cooperative
house (has the opportunity to live
with a large number of foreign
students, and to eat in co-educa-
tional dining facilities," he con-
In order to acquaint the Univer-
sity with the way of living in co-
operative housing, the ICC is
sponsoring "Co-op Week" March
16-22. As part of this week, all
cooperative houses will hold open-
open houses Sunday from 2 p.m.
to 5 p.m.
"The purpose of Co-op Week is
to furnish interested University
students an opportunity to learn
about cooperative living. Growing
prosperity has probably lowered
interest in this type of living,"
Munro said.
"The most important thing co-
operative' housing has to offer is
the experience of living in a group
that operates entirely on its own
resources," Munro declared.

Any University coed with pre-
vious golf experience may join the
Women's Athletic Association's
Golf Club, which will hold its
Spring reorganizational meeting
tomorrow night at 7:15 p.m. at
the Women's Athletic Building.
Coeds do not have to be experts
and anyone who has had some
golf experience either at home or
who has received instruction at
the University may join the club.
Students are asked to come pre-
pared to practice after this first
meeting, says Miss Barbara Rot-
vig, sponsor of the group.
The Golf Club is an active group
on campus, with an all-year round
program. When the golf course
opens in the spring, the club will
engage in nine-hole weekly play
each Thursday afternoon. Oppor-
tunities to establish a handicap
and to receive special attention
will be granted to the group.
Other planned spring events in-
clude the sponsorship and partici-
pation in an all campus "Two-Ball
Foursome" Golf Event. This se-
mester's activities also include
matches with Purdue, Ohio State,
Michigan State, Bowling Green
and, a number of other colleges,
with both "A" and "B" class par-
ticipation being held.
Yearly events of the group in-

elude a fall club tournament
which is open to club members
with flight winners receiving
prizes. During first semester of
this year, 16 mm movies were
taken of the strokes of individual
members and were studied and
analyzed in order to correct posi-
tion faults.
At Christmas time, the group
has a dinner and they have as
their guest a visiting professional.
Jo Fleming, '61, is acting manager
of the organization.
Graduate Council

Show on Travel
Planned at Union
There will be a special travel
show for all students interested
in going overseas this summer
from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. tomorrow
on the third floor of the Union.
Sponsored by the Union and
Student Government Council, stu-
dents will be able to go from room
to room to hear talks by inter-
national students on what to see
and do this summer in their re-
spective countries.
A brief talk will be given in each
room and then there will be a
question period. Pamphlets on
foreign countries will be available
as well as hotel rates and road
maps. There will also be an area
where students may go to get in-
formation on passports and cus-
toms laws.

Army Corps, the show begins as
its six main "characters" regis-
ter as new recruits for the petti-
coat platoon. Billie, the truck driv-
er, Rubie, the stripper, Petunia,
the naive hillbilly, Elizabeth, the
lady of culture from Vassar, and
Pat and Barb, the normal colle-
giates, compose the group of re-
To Act
Rubie will be played by Judy
Wilson, '60 Ed.; Billie by Linda
Crawford, '61; Petunia by Nell
Weaver Hurt, '60; and Elizabeth
by Nina Slawson, '60Mu. Pat and
Barb will be portrayed by Mary
Wilcox, '60, and Jill Bement, '60,
The plot is mobilized when the
general, played by Sherrie Beth

Kotzer, '60, announces that a tal-
ent scout is coming to recruit a
cast for a movie to be made at
the post. She vigorously opposes
the plan.
After a wild calisthenics scene
in which Rubie shows the girls
how they did it in Burlesque, the
girls meet in the barracks to plan
numbers for the talent scout. A
calypso number about satellites,
"America Needs a Moon," follows.
Fear For Petunia
Fearing that Petunia has an
"in" with the talent scout, played
by Karol Buckner, '60, the platoon
decides to get rid of her. She is
sent on the all-important mission
of finding a moon for the United
States, convinced that she is per-
forming a great service.
