CENTER OF ACTIVITY-The League Building houses facilities for recreation, study and meetings,
It also houses the Women's League, the coordinating body for clearing policies and sponsoring ac-
tivities aimed strictly at the female contingent on campus.
League Coordinates Programs

The Women's League was
founded in 1890 and has served as
the clearing house for women's
activities and self - government
ever since.
The League is divided into three
branches which include Women's
League Council, Women's Senate
and Women's Judiciary. The Board
of Governors of the League is
composed of four alumnae, two
faculty women, two women ad-
ministrators and five students.
This body determines policy con-
cerning the Michigan League
The Council of the Women's
League has three branches of gov-
ernment: the League officers, the
Administrative chairmen, the first
vice-presidents of Assembly Asso-
ciation and Panhellenic Associa-
tion, and the president of the
Women's Athletic Association.
Acts As Guide
The League President presides
over League Council meetings and
acts as guide and advisor to the
various women's activities con-
ducted through the Women's
The internal vice-president of
the League coordinates all activi-
ties sponsored by the administra-
tive committees of the League and
prepares the calendar of events
for the entire year. The external
vice-president coordinates League
Policies Seet
By Judiciary
The Women's Judiciary Council
is the judiciary branch of the
Women's League.
"Although it serves as a penal-
izing b o d y at times, Women's
Judic is primarily an educating
r body and a counseling group,"
Judy Gardhouse, '61 Ed, chairman
of the organization, said. Wo-
men's Judic feels that through
education, infractions which may
occur through ignorance can be
prevented, she said.
Women's Judiciary Council is
endowed with responsibility and
authority in four major areas.
Sets Women's Rules
As a policy making body the
group meets once a week to dis-
cuss problems at the University
concerning women's rules. In co-
operation with the Dean of Wo-

activities with other campus or-
ganizations and presides over Wo-
men's Senate.
The Vice-President in charge of
Class Projects is the guide, advisor
and coordinator of the central
committees of Soph Show, Junior
Girls' Play and Senior Night.
Other officers include the Vice-
President in Charge of Finance
and the Chairman of the Inter-
viewing and Nominating Com-
Chooses Committees
The Interviewing and Nominat-
ing Committee has the responsi-
bility of choosing, through the
petitioning and interviewing pro-
cesses, all women students serving
as chairmen or committee mem-
bers for League projects through-
out the year.
Each of the chairmen of the
seven administrative committees
also has a seat on League Council
in addition to her duties in seeing
that League projects run smoothly.
The Community Service Com-
mittee volunteer their services to
the community each year, acting
as hostesses at the University Hos-
pital, the Speech Clinic and the
Veteran's Readjustment Center.
Room has to be allotted for the
functioning of each committee
and League project and the girls
who take care of this belong to
the House Committee. Coordinat-
ing League activities with building
calendars, they see the meetings
are set for the right time in the
right place. Maintenance of the
Library and Listening Rooms also
comes under their jurisdiction.
Work With Union
The International Committee
works with the Union each year
in planning the annual Interna-
tional Week and supervises the
American Sisters Program, pairing
international women students with
Every organization needs a
group of people to let the campus
know what it's doing--the Public-

permanent "Diag Billboard" up-
to-date, writing, editing and pub-
lishing the "League Lowdown"

The League acts as spearhead
for all-campus activities under the
sponsorship of the women stu-
dents. Spearheading the spear-
head is- the Social Committee
which organizes the social activi-

ties presented by the League as
a whole.
Assisting Mrs. Hatcher in pre-
senting the monthly student open
houses held at the President's
House is a major project for the
Social Committee. Among its other
responsibilities are the planning
of bridge lessons and Duplicate

Sing Planned
One of the nost spirited events
during Registration week is the
traditional Michigan all-campus
The event is sponsored by the
Wolverine Club. e
The sing is held immediately
after the President's Welcome. In
this address, President Hatcher
welcomes the new freshmen to
the University of Michigan.
The MC for this combination
pep rally and campus get-together,
will be Newt Loken. Newt has
been active in campus affairs and

Among the entertainers at the
s i n g are the Michigan cheer-
leaders, a traditionallyuall-male
group. They lead the students in
Michigan cheers and demonstrate
their excellence in gymnastics.
A special attraction will be pre-
sentations by the entire Michigan
Marching Band. Under the direc-
tion of William D. Revelli, the
Band has become a well-known
entertainment group. The band
plays music from Bach to Basic,
and has shown such variety and
profiency in drill routines and
dance numbers that it p 1 a c es
among the finest organizations
of its kind.
Also featured at the sing will
be "Bump" Elliot, coach of the
Michigan football team. Coach
Elliot, a former Wolverine All-
American, starred on Michigan's
g r e a t, 1946-47 teams. Another

ball captain.

Week Set
To Orient
The Union and League, in co-
operation with the administration,
will sponsor the social orientation
program to parallel the Univer-
sity's academic orientation.
Orientation week for freshmen
and transfer students who have
not had summer academic orien-
tation will begin Monday, Sept. 12,
with a mass meeting in Hill Audi-
torium where they will meet their
orientation leaders and join their
respective groups.
The rest of that day and Tues-
day will be devoted to academic
testing with the language place-
ment tests being given on Monday
Registration Scheduled
On Wednesday there will be
registration with individual groups
meeting before. In these meetings,
the orientation leaders will ex-
plain the procedure and answer
any questions the new students
may have about registration.
The rest of the week will be de-
voted to social activities so that
incoming students can get to feela
at home at the University and be-
come familiarized with the social
and extra-curricular activities
which are available to them.
One of the campus traditions
will be President Harlan Hatcher's
welcome to incoming students. At
the same time, the deans of men
and women and various student
leaders will address the new stu-
dent body.

sing on the Diagonal. The band
and cheerleaders will be there to
lead the group in their first intro-
duction to school spirit.

range mixers.
Iindividual orientation groups
will be able to attend League-
Union Forums where the students+
will be given the opportunity to0
ask upper classmen questions
about the University and campus
life, too.


MOVING IN-Residents of Mary Markley Hall, woth the aid of family and friends, undertake the
chore of transferring most of their possessions from home to their new campus home-the dormi-
tory, for fteshmen, at least. Markley is the newest of the residence halls, but the job is the same,
regardless of surroundings.
Union's Activities Diverse

* I

The Michigan Union, the largest
men's union in the country, is the
only totally student run organiza-
tion on campus, and offers stu-
dents, faculty members, and
alumni recreational, social, com-
munity and cultural advantages.
The facilities within the Union
itself include a grill and dining
room, hotel accommodations, li-
brary, billiard room, swimming
pool, barber shop, dark rooms, a
hobby room, music listening rooms,
and public meeting rooms.
The Union activities, however,
by no means end here.
Counseling Service
The Student counseling offers to
literary college students the unique
opportunity of receiving peer coun-
seling on an informal basis.
It is the only such service at the
University, though it is not offi-
cially entitled to authorize elec-

Advice from Dear
On Sunday, September 11, Ann Arbor will thoroughly un-
derstand the phrase "the wave of the future." Of the 3,000 drops
forming Michigan's wave of '64, 1,500 will splash down on us
that day. The excitement, optimism, energy and genuine capacity
for learning pouring out are as conspicuously real as the weather
of a sunny, cloudless July day on a Cape Cod beach with a salty
wind sweeping in from the Atlantic.
It is well to remember that this atmosphere of heady energy,
this sense of effective well-being it not, itself, The Deed Accom-
plished. It can be the ideal climate, the carefully provided opti-
mal environment within which, and somewhat because of which
an individual may accomplish The Deed-and the key word is
'may'; not must, nor will.
I am sure you are aware, in the 1960s, of The Deed to be
Accomplished by every droplet in each wave hurrying towards
America's colleges and universities this fall. Your responsibility
is to use to your maximum these four years, this environment,
this faculty, these libraries, laboratories, friends and 'activities'
--this "way of life"-so you may best grow in learning, in char-
acter and in effective living.

tion cards. It again is operated
throug hthe Union student offices.
A Student-Faculty-Administra-
tion Conference is held each year,
in which an opportunity is given
these important segments of the1
University community a chance to
sit and discuss common problems
on an informal basis. The purpose
of this conference is to help iron,
out any difficulties among them.
Tutors Available
A complete, up-to-date file of
available student tutors who have'
excelled in one or more fields of
learnin gis kept in the Union stu-
dent offices. This is an important,
though little known service ren-
dered by the Union.
At various dates during the
course of each academic year out-
standing professors and visiting
authorities in a specialized field
are invited to speak by the Union.
They either give talks or partici-
pate in panel debates and discus-
sions at the end of which are
question and answer periods for
the audiences.
The Union plays a large role in
campus social activities. Each Sat-
urday night following football
games a campus dance is offered
in the Union ballroom. Dances are
also held every Friday night in the
Union Grill. This popular tradi-
tion is commonly known as Little
The Union also sponsors jazz
concerts in the Hill Auditorium.
During the Fall and Spring orien-
tation periods Union Madness is
offered. This includes band in both
the ballroom and grill in the eve-
ning and a casino party for the
new students.%
Football tickets are sold the
morning of the home games in the
Union lobby. An information booth
is also set up in the lobby for the
convenience of alumni and guests.
During Homecoming Weekend cof-
fee hour get-togethers are spon-
sored by and held in the Union.

In conjunction with the Wom-
en's League, the Union plans and
executes both annual orientation
programs. Some idea of the Uni-
versity community is given to high"
school juniors and seniors during
the annual "U" Day. Tours and
lectures are provided,
The Campus United Nations is
an important function of the Uni-
versity in introducing the Uni-
versity to foreign students. It also
plans to acquaint American stu-
dents with international culures.
It is set up on a similar scale to
the United Nations and is repre-
sented by foreign and American
Helps Foreign Students
The International Week and.
World's Fair is another important
part of the attempt on the part
of the University and the Union
to make foreign students feel at
home in Ann Arbor.
The World's Fair is the highlight
of the week. Students from various
countries portray various aspects
of the native cultures. Each na-
tionality club on campus builds an
exhibit of its choice which is
displayed in a specified part of the
Union. These usually include art,
games and food.
Trip to Europe
The Union sponsors each year
anairflight to Europe and back.
This amounts to a considerable
saving over the conventional air-
lines and steamship transporta-
tion costs. It makes available to
the student, who might not other-
wise be able to afford it, a chance
to see the Continent.
Weekend Activities
Many of the all campus social
weekends are coordinated by ,the
Union. These include; "Michi-
gras," a biannual campus weekend
featuring a carnival, parade and
displays; "Homecoming," the spe-
cial weekend for alumni in which
affiliate and nonaffiliate groups
erect displays, "Musket," offcially
the "Michigan Union Show, Ko-
Eds Too"; and "Spring Weekend."

'U' To Equip
Hill Halls
With Phones
Old Couzens Closed,
Totally Overhauled
A renovation program spread
over this school year will enhance
living conditions in the group of
women's residence halls on The
Telephones installed in individ-
ual dormitory rooms, operating
from a central switchboard, will
be enjoyed by girls in Alice Lloyd,
Couzens and Stockwell halls by the
end of this school year, with fur.
ther extension planned. This cone
venlence was formerly available
to girls living only in Mary Mark.
ley Hall, built in 1958.
Most freshman women will be
introduced to University housing
through one of the five dormitories
in the Hill area. Markley, tailored
to fit student wishes according to
University-conducted polls, is a
massive H-shaped structure where
modern facilities and decor alleg. d
edly soften the "institutional at..
mosphere." It's location is actually
a half-block over the Hill, on
Washington Hts.
Gothic Hall
Stockwell, the Gothic building
on the corner of Observatory and
N. University, boasts medieval
tapesired lounges. Mosher-Jordan
halls modernized during the past
two years, is in keeping with the
same architectural tradition and
has a quasi-drawbridge. During
1959-60 school year, girls from
Mosher moved into one of Mark-
ley's eight divisions while repairs
were made.
Alice loyd Hall, second newest
and largest, sits next to the as-
tronomy observatory on the cor-
ner of Ann and Observatory. ru
sent, on Ann facing the hospital,
will undergo extensive remodeling
In the coming year. Its old section
will be completely overhauled-
new furniture, plumbing, wiring,
plastering, floor and ceiling, tele
phones-Because of its location,
Couzens is the home of junior and
senior nurses; because of its sched-
uled repairs, it will house few
freshmen this year.
Few Freshmen
A few freshmen will be placed
in Helen Newberry and Betsy Bar-
bour houses, relatively tiny dorms
(about 200 girls each) just across
State Street from Angell Hall. Re-
decorated last year, Barbour and
Newberry pride themselves on the
gracious atmosphere their size
renders possible. Victor Vaughan
a small dormitory on Catherine be-
hind the Hill, is the eighth wom-
en's dorm.
Other forms of housing for Uni-
versity women include coopera-
tives, where the girls share in
housework and cooking to reduce
expenses, and League hous,
where no meals are served. The
University's 22 sorority chapter
houses accommodate between 20
and 50 girls each in privately-
owned housing.
Sororities Expand
. Sororities are expanding rapidly,
and building of additions and new
houses grows accordingly. Alpha
Gamma Delta and Alpha Xi Delta
sororities will be in new houses,
built last year.
The Martha Cook building across
from the Law Quadrangle on
South 'Jniversity, is reserved for
upperclass women who interview
for residency in the spring and late

fall. Its Venus de Milo greets the
eye of the guests from her vista
at the far end of Martha Cook's
long central corridor.
Women's housing is scattered at
all points of the compass on the
University campus-two dorms on
State Street, six in the roughly
defined Hill area, sororities in the
Washtenaw-Hill St. neighborhood
(a brisk walk, as rushees so'r. dis-
cover) and small independEnt
houses scattered randomly.
