To Print Play

"The planning of activities for.
the Women's League is very large-
ly in the hands of the League
Council," Prof. Claribel Baird,
chairman of the League Board of
Governors, has said in contrasting
her organization with the Michi-
gan Union.
The Women's League, commonly
confused with the Michigan League,
is the undergraduate organization
for women at the University.
Michigan League is the name of
the building which houses the
Women's League undergraduate
offices as well as a dining room,
snack bar, the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, meeting rooms and hotel
facilities. '
"There is no formal constitution
for the Michigan League," Prof.
Baird said. The Regents have es-
tablished the Rules and Regula-

On the same day the Press will
print a translation of the Russian
play, "Krechinsky's Wedding"
written by Alexander Suhkovo-
The play, a melodrama, is still
running in Moscow. It depicts
Russian life under the Czar in the
mid 19th Century.
The central character is a pov-
erty-stricken gambler who is try-
ing to marry the unattractive
daughter of a wealtl7y landowner
in order to get her money.
The play was translated by Prof.
Robert Magidoff of the Slavic
languages department.
Student Dies
After Accident,

yesterday morning at University
Hospital from injuries incurred
at 1:30 a.m. Saturday when he
fell from a second story window
of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity
Police report that previous to
the accident Gallogly was seated
on a small heating unit in front
of a draped full-length window
listening to records with three
other members of the fraternity.
The window was open and the
protective screen removed. Gal-
logly leaned back against the
drapes and fell into the patio

A rchitects
New. Plants
Preliminary plans have been
completed for the University's new
Physics-Astronomy Building.
Albert Kahn & Assoc., the build-
ing's architects, are preparing
working drawings for construction
bids which will be made in May
or June of next year.,
The building should be complet-
ed early in 1963, John G. McKev-
itt, assistant to the vice-president
in charge of business and finance,
said yesterday.
The University has authorized
$3.2 million for the structure
which will be located on East Uni-
versity opposite the Randall lab-
The Physics-Astronomy, Build-
ing was authorized last spring by
the state Legislature as part of a
general planning and construction
authorization of 7 million dollars
for the cyclotron, Institute of Sci-
ence and Technology and Physics-
Astronomy buildings.
When construction is complet-,
ed, all of the astronomy staff will
move its offices into the new
building as will the section of the
physics department which is now
in the West Physics Building.
The building will be divided in-
to two basic units. One, a two-
storry section, will house lecture
rooms and the library and the
other will be a ten-story struc-
ture for classrooms, laboratories
and offices.

Determines Policy
n accordance with their direc-
tion, the League Board of Gover-
nors was formed to determine
both the policy and financial'
structure for the Michigan League.
The board is composed of 12 voting
members including the Dean of,
Women, a member of the Regents,
two University Senate representa-
tives, four alumnae and four stu-
dent members of the Women's
League. "We have a balance of
power in favor of alumnae and-
students, which is the way the
the women wanted it," Prof. Baird
Non-voting members on the
board include the business mana-.
ger of the -Michigan League, the
secretary of the Alumnae Coun-
cil and the program director of the
Women's League.
"The student representatives are
usually executive officers of the
undergraduate organization," Prof.-
Baird noted. This year Susan Ken-
nedy, '61A&D, president; Jean
Ross, '61, administrative vice-
president; Barbara Gilbert, '62,
executive vice - president: a n d
Linda Unrad, '62, coordinating
vice-president, are on the Board.
Elected by Board
"The chairman of the League
Board is elected by the Board. She
must either be a Senate represent-
ative or one of the alumnae, Prof.
Baird said.
The students themselves "have a
minimum of direction and act
quite independently from the
Board,'' Prof. Baird commented.
It is not the duty of the League
Board of Governors to disciss and
ratify the students' projects. In
cooperation with the Dean of
Women's office, the Program
Director serves as sponsor for the
undergraduate women.,
"The students can bring any
matter of concern, including
finances, before the board if they
wish, however," Prof. Baird said.
Sees No Conflict
"The work of that organization
rarely conflicts with mine," said

Wilma Steketee, who serves as
business manager of the building.
Among her duties are all purchas-
ing for the building and determin-
ing salaries for League employees.
"The building functions on a
non-profit basis," Miss Steketee
said, "but we are required to be
a self-sustaining unit. We receive
no appropriations from the legis-
Union Structure Differs
The Michigan Union has a some-
what different structure than the.
League set-up. The Union con-
stitution provides for a Board of
Directors composed of 10 students
and nine adults. It is the policy
making body of the organization.
All financial matters come under
the jurisdiction of the Union
Finance Committee according to
Franklin Keunzel, who serves as
general manager of the building.
This group includes the three
executive members of the under-
graduate men's organization, who
collectively have two votes, the
financial secretary, the pean of
Men, two non-student members
of the Board of Directors and the
Regent who is a member of the
"Our League board is compar-
able to the Union board plus its
f i n a n c i a l committee," Miss
Stekette noted.
Has Dual Role
Another difference between the
men's and women's organizations
is that the Union general manager
serves as both sponsor of the
organization and business manager
for the building. In the women's
organization there is both a
general business manager and a
social director, who coordinates
the student activities.
"When we examined the Union
and the League earlier this year,
we found that there were- some
structural as well as theoretical
differences," Miss Kennedy noted.
She added that these were ex-
plain according to the differences
in the needs of men and women
at the University."
