The newspaper, as yet unnamed,
is a revival of a Panhel newspaper
called "The Affiliate", which dis-
appeared from campus two years
ago, gradually diminishing in size
from a glossy tabloid to a one-
page mimeographed sheet.
"We h9pe the newspaper will
strengthen communications be-
tween houses, as well as between
Panhel and the houses," Miss
Stillerman commented.
The paper will be mmeogrphed
at first, but Miss Stillerman hopes
the response will be great enough
to warrant expansion in the future.
The staff will be comprised of
reporters' from each house, who
will contribute news of. activities

general interest to affiliated wo-
Editorials and columns by ad-
ministration and faculty personnel,
Panhel officers and others will
be encouraged. Miss Stillerman
will also write a column of short

"Trlyla." '
"We plan to have the paper
delivered to all sorority houses by
breakfast time on Mondays, since
there is no Michigan Daily to

College Years
An opportunity to summarize
their college education and discuss
their intellectual development has
been offered with a random sample
of seniors in the Honors Program
of the literary college.
The 6 seniors selected for these
written autobiographies will meet
with Prof. Robert C. Angell, direc-
tor of the Honors Council, at 4:15
p.m. today in Rm. 429, Mason Hall.
Each student who completes the
essay with "conscientiousness" will
receive $20 renumeration, Prof.
Angell explained.
"Those of you who fall in the
sample are urgently requested to
accept the assignment; those of
You who don't, can't get in no
matter how much you need the
money! We must be scientific at
all costs," he said.
Ideally, Prof. Angell said, the
themes would deal with the
senior's growth from before he
cntred the University to the pre-
sent, charting the events and
pecple that have influenced him.
"We want to discover how the
University, and in particular, the
Horors Program have affected the
student. We also hope to find out
how the individual was motivated
to the choice of his vocation and
how he plans to spend the rest
of his life."
Prof. Angell added that he
would go over each essay person-
lly and discuss them with the
student involved.

Three failures in the Adminis-'

his 'anti - United States outlook.l
First, there was no attempt to
shorten the wide gap between the
rich and the poor in Cuba. Next;
there was a great lack of foreign
service experts sent to Cuba who
understood the masses and their
frustrations. Third, a Point Four
program for South America was
not initiated.
"We ignored the fundamektal
forces at work" in the country,
and thus, with Castro's ascension
to power, our nation is associated

Dear Dr. Frood: Here is a controversial bridge hand played at
a recent college tournament. The contract was six no-trump.
Some say declarer should have played the Fiskill Convention,
squeezing West while end-playing East. Others, however, say
a straight dummy reversal and a trump coup would bring home
the contract. What would you do with a hand like this?
No Trump
DEAR NO TRUMP: In our club, successful play would require
slapping the Jack, whistling at the Queen and quickly saying
"Sir Hinkum Dinkum Fuzzy Duster" when the one-eyed King
is played.
