obbie Maier Reviews Life on Campus,

League Picks Leaders
For Fall Orientation

"ORGANIZATION WOMEN"--Bobbie Maier, former president of
the League, doesn't believe in being the typical "organization
woman" but sees a possibility in activities for improvement of
one's self as an individual and an evaluation of goals in organi-

haven't lost interest in my- classes,
in the League or SGC."
"But you have to start looking
forward. Seniors aren't apathetic;
they're just interested in a lot of
different things and they must
make many decisions," she assert-
ed, explaining that seniors' in-
terests increase in scope and don't
dissipate as commonly believed.
The League, striving to act as a
service. organization, has been
looking at the diverse aspects of
a growing campus in the past
year, andhas been trying to bring
things closer to the individual, she
said, and stressed the need for
direct action in these areas.
Provides Service
"When you see a need, it's not
that hard to provide a specific
service to fill that need. You have
to go out and do this on your own,
though," she insisted. "The presi-
dent doesn't .get things done by
sitting in her office!"
This year, for example, the
League has individualized its pro-1
jects in the form of the coming
Diag art exhibit, and Hyde Park.
Adding a program of informal
book reviews by the faculty, with
coffee hours, contact with the
individual has been strengthened,
bringing her closer to the League's
potentialities. These things camej
about because the 'need' of the
individual, and not the campus-
at-large, was considered and the

projects were created to be adapt-
able to them, she said.
"What we've aimed at is to be
a real service organization, to get
a fresh look at the purpose and
function of the League, and to see
beyond its limitations as a 'so-
cially-socially' type thing," she
summarized. "After all, not every-
one wants to work on Frosh Week-
end or JGP." Accordinly, she felt
that the social area, which is al-
ready pretty well developed, need
not be over-emphasized. "I cer-
tainly do not approve of creating
new projects if the campus doesn't
want them."
Supports Guidance Plan
She is particularly interested in
a vocational guidance plan that
the League is considering for next
'year, she said. This would provide
for an informal exchange of ideas.
and information, something she
feels is much n1eeded by girls who
are looking for unusual oppor-
tunities in women's careers. "This
could help people like me," Bobbie
mused happily.
But the main point is that a
service organization can't just be
there, she said; it must justify its
existence. She sees the college
community. as quite idealistic, and
referred to its "possibility for mo-
bility without social or economic
limitations." What you think and
what you are are the things that
matter here, she believes, because
university life should not empha-
size superficialities.
"If you want to act, you can
act," she continued, thinking of
the passively philosophical per-
son who might easily apply his
theories to advantage, "but does
he ever carry them out? It's like
the controversy between the reli-
gious person and the religious'
Concerned about Evaluations
Bobbie said that what she is
more concerned about, however,
is the person who never evaluates,
or tries to give direction to his ac-
tions. "This seems to be a very
depressing, fatalistic attitude," she
So many people, all very ideal-
istic, will agree in theory, she
said, but when there is an op-
portunity to apply theoretical
ideals to specific issues, "It's an
interesting thing to test yourself
and watch others as they vary in
interpretation." Reflecting, she re-
marked "to be honest is one of
the highest ideals, I think; to
have integrity and tact and with
these to fight for your beliefs."
"In the academic and more so-
cial experiences of my college ca-
reer, the greatest advantage has
been to meet lots of people and
learn of their ideas. I hope that
I can do something in my life'
through which I can carry forth
the best of the ideas and ideals
which I've discovered," she con-

Soph Show
Chooses Play
"Finian's Rainbow" will be next
year's Soph Show, the Central
Committee announced yesterday.
This musical satire, first pro-
duced in New York in 1946, was
written by E. Y. Harburg and Fred
Saidy, starring Donald Richards
and Ella Logan.
The plot, which is part fairy
tale and part social satire, con-
cerns the inhabitants of a "fertile
valley in the state of Missatucky,
U.S.A.," according to the stage
The immigrant. farmers of the
community are, being robbed of
their land by a wicked Senator,
who is buying them out in a tax
The plot revolves around three
wishes which are given.to the peo-
ple of the valley with a pot of
leprechaun gold. This was brought
to America by a father and daugh-
ter who come from Ireland to
settle in the valley.
The leprechaun whose gold it
had been follows them to America,
trying to regain his gold and keep
himself from turning mortal,
which is the punishment for lepre-
chauns who lose their gold.
In the course of the show every-
one falls in love.
The tryouts for parts will begin
on September 24, but the other
arrangements for the show have
already begun.

of "Attic Antics," at 3 p.m. today.
This year's version of the an-
