Assembly Council Decides
To Decrease Membership

On Faculty,
Student Ties
Women's Senate will feature a
discussion on "impersonal" fac-
ulty-student relationships at their
meeting at 4:15 p.m. today in the
Henderson Rm. of the League.
Penny Reynolds, chairman of
the Senate, and Ann Morrison, her,
assistant, will discuss with the rest
of the Senators the course evalu-
ations going on in the literary col-
lege in light of the "tendency to-
ward impersonal relationships" in
a large state university.
"The relationships at present
are too stiff," commented Miss
"For instance, how much do
English conferences usually
cover?" She feels that both stu-
dent and teacher merely feel ob-
ligated to attend such a meeting.
"In a history lecture of 200,"
she asked, "how can a professor
possibly get to know all of his
Miss Morrison noted that a fac-
ulty member will discuss the same
issue at the next Women's Senate
The Senate may also discuss to-
morrow the recent faculty-senate
resolution concerning the Sigma
Kappa issue.
Faculty Senate last week re-
solved to smuport SGC decision
finding Sigma Kap-,, sorority in
violation of the University dis-
criminatory regulatioius.
All Senators will have the op-
portun'ty to participnte in a gen-
eral talk about FacultyrSenate
and Women's Senate relation-
ships, Miss Morrison aidded.

Elevated stainless steel equip-
ment and signs like "Are your fin-
gerprints guilty?" highlight the
Mary Markley kitchen.
The apparatus in most kitchens
is mounted on the floor, but one of
Markley's most distinctive features
is that the equipment is all
mounted from the walls.
The purpose of this elevation is
.to make cleaning and access to
plumbing easier. Visiting archi-
tects have toured Markley and
marveled at one of the country'sE
first elevated kitchens, according
to a kitchen official.
Office Elevated
Against one wall of the kitchen
is an elevated, glass-surrounded
office. From there dietitian Eliza-
beth Hyde can see what's cooking.
Miss Hyde was graduated from
Michigan State University in 19531
with a bachelor's degree in home
economics. She worked at the Uni-
versity four years, then returned
to Michigan State for graduate
work. Her duties involve planning
menus, ordering food and super-
vising production and employees.
In order to keep in touch with
the employees, Miss Hyde may also
make use pf one of six intercom
sets. These are located in the
office, kitchen, bake shop, receiving
room and each of the two serving
rooms, -
The kitchen is staffed by 35K
full-time and approximately 100
part-time employees. The first em-
ployee arrives at 5:45 a.m. and the
last leaves at 8 p.m. daily.
Meal Routine
In order to feed 1,200 *omen in
four separate dining rooms, allow-
ing them 50 minutes per meal,
some of the employees prepare one
meal, serve it, and clean up. Dur-

Markley women in a matter of
ing the last stage, others work
on the next meal.
Most Markley women use the
apparatus in the third floor serv-
ing rooms every day. For break-
fast one day, the button on the
automatic milk machine in dining
room four was pushed 255 times,
149 times for whole and the rest
for skim milk. Markley-ites drink
180 gallons of milk per day.
Behind the serving line is a rowa
of refrigerators for storage of 10-
gallon milk cans, salads and des-
serts. Roast beef (325 pounds is
devoured per meal), other meats'
and vegetables are kept warm in
hot serving trays.
'Pop-Up' Dishes
Dishes for serving are arranged
on springs so that they will pop up
Folklore Society
Sets Holiday Sing
A Christmas-Chanukah folksing'
will take place at 7:30 p.m. tomor-
row at the Michigan Union.
The sing is open to the campus
and is sponsored by the U-M Folk-
lore Society, Barry Kalish, '61, a
member of the group reports.

Assembly Dormitory Council
voted unanimously Monday to de-
crease its membership probably
beginning next semester, from
about 50 to 23 representatives.
In a roll call vote on a slate of
constitutional changes and addi-
tions, the Council replaced the
section providing for proportional
representation with a clause stat-
ing that the group "shall con-
sist of one representative from
each house" to be elected and to
serve as a voting member of her
house council.
The changes, which also include
provision for calling a referendum
on issues the Council may con-
sider important to the entire body
of independent women and speci-
fications for the establishment of
a Presidents Council, will be pre-
sented to Student Government
Council for approval at its first
meeting after Christmas vacation,
according to Pat Marthenke, '59,
Assembly president and chairman
of the Council.

The decrease in membership, al-

further changes in individual
house constitutions, will enable
the Council, Miss Marthenke said,
"to give the campus a better stu-

women and will make i a more

Miss Comiano expressed the
conviction that the membership

tional aspects" and make it a
