Commencing

(By Anna McGurk,'20)1
The Athena Literary Society, theF
only organization of its kind for wom-
en on the campus, was started in 1917
by 12 charter members under the di-i
rection and guidance of Mr. Ray K.
Immel of the department of oratory.
For many years before its establish-1
ment a real need was felt for a prac-
tical society of this kind, where womeni
might get practice in public speaking.
Athena's main purpose is to foster
public speaking and debate among
Michigan women. It gives practice in;
impromptu and extemporaneous work,
and it teaches the members the laws
of conducting business in parliament-+
ary order. It also gives opportunity
to develop judgment by allowing mem-
HEALTH SERVICE
ISSUES WARNING
(By Leo Hershdorfer)
This is the time of year when men's
thoughts turn to heavy topcoats and
sheepskins and, contrary-wise, wom-
en's thoughts to shedding of furs. But
the weather man's delight is to toy
with the elements, and sometimes he
sends us cold, drear days with light
ufirries of snow, which cause us to
take the mothballs out of our overcoat
pockets, and to place, instead, our
hands in said pockets. On these days,
too, the ex-gob buttons up his pea-
jacket to the topmost button, and the
former doughboy makes use again of
his khaki shirt and o. d. overcoat.
But if Mr. Weather Man feels in a
jocular mood, he teases us with a mild,
pleasant day, to warm the hearts
which Jack Frost the previous day
had chilled. Then off comes the pea-
jacket, discarded in tse khaki shirt,
relegated to the wardrobe is the over-
coat, and ex-gob and doughboy stroll
light-heartedly about the campus in
summer attire.
That's human nature. But some-
times human nature has the wrong
'hunch." Anyway, the University
health service, which watches over the
health of the student body day and

bers to criticize the speakers of the
evening.
Programs Vary
The programs for each meeting are
made out by a committee with the
vice-president of the society acting as
chairman. They aim to vary the na-
ture of the programs from week to
week. The work during the past year
included speeches on subjects of cur-
rent interest, discussions of various
sorts, and debates.
On two occasions the meetings as-
sumed the nature of political nominat-
ing conventions.
The society was represented by two
of its members on the varsity debating
teams, one on the Central League
team, and one on the Mid-West team.
This is the first year that women have
held positions on Michigan debating
teams.
Hold Tryouts
Membership in the society is deter-
mined by tryouts in the spring and in
the fall. The candidates for admission
prepare three-minute speeches and
present them before the old members.
They are judged on delivery and on
the thought in the content of the
speech. At the present time the mem-
bers in Athena number about 45.
In the future the society plans to
hold a debate between the freshman
and sophomore members. It hopes to
make this an annual affair.
night, says the "hunch" is wrong, and
surely the health service should know.
Hark to the advice of the doctors:
This is the uncertain season of the
year when one cannot be too careful
about his health, and should use dis-
cretion in the matter of changing
clothing. Overcoats and sweaters
should be taken off immediately upon
entering artificially heated rooms.
Rooms should be heated only suffi-
ciently to insure comfort, and ventila-
tion should be moderated according to
the temperature. Disregard of these
health rules, says the health service,
too often are the causes of light colds
and alarming sneezes which later de-
velop into more dangerous ills.
