Assembly Represents Women

IFC Guards Members' Behavior

Assembly Association is the of-
ficial organization of the inde-
pendent women living in dormitor-
ies on campus.
Technically, any woman living
in a University residence hall is
automatically a member of Assem-
bly. With the recent change in rul-
ings to allow senior women to have
apartments, Assembly is studying
the question of whether to limit
Assembly to include only women
living in the dormitories or to in-
clude those living in apartments
in some manner.
In the past, any woman not liv-
ing in the residence halls. could be
an associate member of Assembly.
Two Assembly Bodies
There are two main bodies func-
tioning within Assembly. Assem-
bly Dorm Council is composed of
elected representatives from their
respective houses. At the weekly
meetings, ADC formulates policy
and carries out legislative func-
tions. In addition, it works in such

areas as housing, alumni relations,
campus and house services.
The Assembly Executive Com-
mittee is made up of the top offi-
cers of Assembly plus the chair-
men of related boards and com-
The Assembly president is the
official representative on Student
Government C o u n c i1, Women's
Conference Committee and to var-
ious conferences.
Co-Sponsor Rally
Last September Assembly for the
first time co-sponsored the pep
rally and mixer in conjunction
with the Wolverine Club and the
group plans to hold a similar ac-
tivity this year.
The Duke Ellington Concert and
the Assembly - Inter - Quadrangle
Council Sing are annual events
presented by the two groups. At
the Sing, house choirs vie for a
trophy awarded for outstanding
group singing.
Assembly also organized a house

officers workshop each fall de-
signed to aid women in offices
within their houses to get to know
people in similar positions on cam-
pus and to work out mutual prob-
Assembly takes responsibility for
coordinating the big sister pro-
gram, house and social activities,
faculty guests and provides some
public relations services, such as
publishing the house booklets.
The president of Assembly serves
on the Residence Hall Board of
Governors along with the Inter-
Quad president and various fac-
ulty members and administrators
to determine policy for the resi-
dence halls.
As well as being a member of the
Residence Hall Board of Gover-
nors, she is a representative on
Student Government Council and
may, as this year, take part in the
activities of the United States Na-
tional Student Association.

The IFC executive committee
consists of a representative from
each of the geographical districts
into which the affiliates are di-
vided plus alumni representatives.
Executive Committee
The executive committee also
has the function of acting as a
judiciary for violations of major,
rules such as hazing, which is for-
bidden by the University, although
there are occasionally fraternities
and honoraries which engage in
"rough house" treatment of their
pledging members.
There is also a judiciary sub-

committee to deal with}minor in-
fractions, such as fraternities who
violate the non-University's ruling
regarding minors' use of alcohol,
or which give unauthorized parties.
In these cases, the fraternity gen-
erally is placed on probation and
may have neither liquor nor par-
ties for some time.
It is necessary for IFC to bind
together houses with diverse in-
terests and elements. Each house
has an individual character in ad-
dition to the various personalities
found in them, the IFC handbook
claims. Some houses emphasize
scholarship, others activities and
still others emphasize neither di-
rectly, but concentrate on what-
ever they regard as important.


The houses are all run by stu-
dents, although they are owned
by the alumni corporations of
each unit.
The treasurer, the house mana-
ger and the steward hold re-
sponsibility for the daily opera-
tion of each house. They are in
charge of house employees and
general operations.
The steward purchases food for
the entire group. Often he buys
through the Fraternity Buyer's
Association, which purchases large
quantities of food at wholesale
prices for fraternities.
Athletes Rate
Each house also has an athletic
chairman who handles the group's
participation in the various intra-
mural programs offered at the

vices ranging from rushing coun-
selors and a rushee orientation
program to policing to insure that

Fraternity pledges usually spenda
one day a week, on the average,
working around the house, mow-
ing the lawn, making miscellan-
eous repairs and doing other odd
jobs around the fraternity's
Young Members
Each fraternity pledge class
elects a president who acts as its
representative to Junior Inter-
fraternity Council (JIFC).
JIFC takes charge of pledge help
week, a period during which fra-
ternity and sorority pledges con-
tribute their effort working at the
University's fresh air camp.
Fraternity social life is also ac-
tive. Ranging from informal par-
ties to pledge formals, affiliate
social life is run by the social
chairmen of each house. All par-
ties are registered in advance with
the University.
IFC also endeavors to further
relationships between fraternity
men and the University commun-
ity as a whole.

NOW IF I WERE PRESIDENT-The free-for-all Hyde Park
Days on the Diag often draw to the fore the most articulate
students on campus. Sometimes listened to respectfully, but the
next minute heckled or challenged by a new speaker, the average
Hyde Park hero enjoys a short reign,
Hyde Park Speakers Strain
To Keep 'Diag Interested



Where can you "just look"
at Diamonds, ask questions
(and get the right answers)
and not be urged to buy?
U-M MEN have learned that they can ask HAACK'S gemologist any questions about
diamonds, compare and jot down prices, look at beautiful individually styled rings or
loose unset diamonds, and check HAACK'S liberal payment terms. They are never urged
to buy. What questions do you have?
The atmosphere at HAACK'S is private, business-like, yet casual, friendly and relaxed.
Because your time is valuable, and the selection of a diamond so important, HAACK'S
arrange a private appointment for you when you phone ... NORMANDY 3-0653. Whether
you come alone, with a friend, parenst, or fiance, HAACK'S diamond room assures your
comfort and complete privacy.
Are you price conscious? HAACK'S urge you to compare their direct-from-their mines
diamond prices with any "wholesale" source, "discount" catalog, "liquidation" listings,
"sales," etc. But-HAACK'S never urge you to buy. You can make your own comparisons
and make up your own mind after seeing how precise scientific diamond grading instru-
ments measure quality and value right before your own eyes.
You will be "at ease" at HAACK'S . . . trusted diamond experts for 25 years. Phone for
your private appointment now.

The Diag is the central cross-
roads of the main campus - a
huge square from which diverge
numerous walks leading to the
General Library, Angell, Haven,
and Mason Halls, and the Natural
Science, Chemistry, and Natural
Resources Buildings.
Its center is marked by a large
"M", a source of bad luck to the
freshman who treads upon it, for
he will surely fail his next exam.
Because of the many students
who cross it each day, the Diag is
a natural spot for caympus groups
to advertise their up-and-coming
events. Gigantic posters and signs
announce dances, plays, trips to
Europe, fashion shows, meetings,
special lectures, movies, and sem-
Other Activities
Before important c a m p u s
events, ticket booths are set up,
and attention-catching skits are
staged. Dancing, singing, and
stunts are certain to attract a
crowd of interested spectators.
The Diag is also a popular site
for pep rallies, band concerts, and
impromptu songfests led by gui-
tarists and folksingers. It, is the
residing spot of roaming fraternity

St. Bernards, gazing girl-watchers,
and stray sailboats inviting stu-
dents to join the Sailing Club.
The height of excitement arises
on the Diag when Hyde Parks oc-
cur. Adapted from the famed Lon-
don debate forum, Hyde Park is
a campus forum for public oratory
and arena of competition for the
Present Issues
The cement benches replace
soap boxes, but the exchange of
ideas, and opinions are thereal
thing. Crowds throng to listen to
and occasionally to mock the stu-
dent speakers.
Any debater with a loud voice
and ready opinion may participate
in the discussions. In the past, as
many as four speakers have si-
multaneously vied for the atten-
tion of the Diag audience.
As envisioned by members of the
Michigan League, its originators,
Hyde Park is a loosely structured
activity established to promote a
wide variety of discussion topics,
a lafge amount of spontaneity and
many active participants who are
a part of the audience and who
wish to provoke thought with what
they have to say.

LOUD AND CLEAR-Among Interfraternity Council's functions
is the organizing of songfests and other activities in which men
of the different houses play against each other. "IFC Sing," shown
here, is among the most famous of these.
