Explaining the individual point sys-
t1m by which a record of each wo-
uan's activities on campus is kept,
Charlol'te Blagdon, '25, stated that ac-
cording to the constitution of the Wo--
man's League no woman may carryj
more than 12 points at one time.
Twenty-eight cases of women hav-
ing more than 12 points were report-
ed to the point system committee dur-
ing the month of November. Twenty-
seven of those reduced their points
to 12 with the exception of four cases!
which have the approval of the judic-
iary council. One case is still pend-
ing and no cases of women having
more than 12 points occurred in De-
A card file containing 808 cards al-
phabetically arranged indicating the
number of activities a woman is par-
ticipating in and the number of points
she has is kept in the office of thej
dean of women and is accessible at
any time. The purpose of this system
in limiting one woman is to give
others anopportunity to take part
in activities. Miss Blagdon stated, "I
~believe a woman could not keep) hert
scholarship up and yet take more
Sthan 12 points." This file system
.nakes it possible for any one to con-
s, ult the files when making 'up) comn-
mittees, and to judge whether an in-
justice is being done in placing a cer-
tain woman on a committee, and in
distributing the services women on
campus can render among a larger,
In addition there is a card file al-
phabetically arranged of the organi-,
zations on campus, both files are keptr
by the following committee: Doris!
Bessenger, '25, Dorothy Pudrith, '26,
and Jeanne Briggs, '25. s-
In answer to some discontent ex-
pressed in limiting activities Miss
I3lagdon said that the committee
could raise the number of points a
woman may carry, or lower the num-'
