The National League of Women
Voters at Washington, D. C. has an-
nounced the establishment of a $1,000
fellowship at the Robert BrookingsI
Graduate School of Economics and
Government for the study of the Amer-
jcan Indian problem, the successive
policies of the Government, and the
contemporary administration of In-
dian affairs.
The fellowship, which is open to
women graduates of approved colleg-
es and universities who have had a
gear of graduate work in economics
and government, covers the cost of a
year's fees, rpom, and board at the
school. The League announces that
f, at the end of the year, the candi-
late's work has proven successful
the fellowship will be renewed for a
second year, after which she will
qualify for and rceeive the degree of
3Doctor of Philosophy.
Applications for the fellowship
,should be made to the National League
of Women Voters, by May 1, upon a
form prepared for the purpose. Copies
of'the general announcement of the
Robert Brookings Graduate School at
Washington, D. C., and further infor-
mation concerning the fellowship may
be procured from the National League
of Women Voters, 532 17th Street,
Washington, D. C.
Point system charts mailed last
week to all house Presidents serve as-
a guide for all women taking part in
campus activities. Th'e activities have
been divided into 27 groups and the
points for- each subdivision of the
group are dependent upon the time
the activity requires, the character of
the work, and the responsibility of the
position in that activity. In addition
to a redistribution of points, several
new organizations have been includ-
The purpose of the system as stated
on the charts is, "Th-e distribution of
the honors and duties of college life
in order to promote efficiency in the
activity and group consciousness
among a larger number of University
women." No woman will be allowed
to assume more than 14 points at any
one time, and each woman, as a mat-
ter of personal honor, is expected to
limnit the number of points carried ac-
cording the scholarship requirement
of the, university. Each student must
have for the past semester a number
of honor points equal to the number
of hours carried with no absolute fail-
ure, in order to take part in activities.
The revised point system was rec-
ommended by a committee of the Wo-
man's League. It was approved by
the committee on student affairs, and
adopted by the Board of Directors of
the League.

man has one upperclassman or mem-
her of the faculty to entertain and to

May-Day plans change yearly. But
or the last four or five years it has
been the custom to celebrate this day
on the new campus at Towsen. Here
a little play is given by selected mem-
a hers of the group and a senior is
crowned "Queen of the May." After
the play the first copy of the school
annual, "Donnybrook Fair," is pre-
sented to the president of the senior
cl ass.
The most eventful week of the
spring season, however, is the week
just before commencement. On five
nights of this week there is what is
known as "Step Singing," correspond-
:ig to the Senior Sing at Michigan.
Seniors gather on the steps of Goucher
hal and sing new and original songs.

carry these on their shoulders. Some
however, remain in an upper balcony,
and after the seniors have sung, sing
the "Rose Song" to them and shower
rose petals down upon them. After
this the seniors pass down between the
chains singing, "Where Oh Where."
And when the last has gone down, the
juniors take the steps singing, "For
we are Seniors." The sophomores
then carry their daisy chains to an
open space across from the steps
where they form their own and the
senior numerals.
At nine o'clock on one night during
this same week the freshmen form a
lantern chain with lanterns of color-
ed glass of the freshmen and senior
colors. On a lawn between two of
the dormitories numerals and figures
are formed as have been previously
done by the sophomores. After the
final one, the seniors come in cap and
gown to the same spot where - they
build a bon-fire and march around it
singing the "Funeral Pyre." Roll is
called and as she hears her name each
senior steps up and throws into the
fire the book that has caused her the
greatest grief during her college car-
eer. A record of these books is kept
and at the end, announcement is made
of the most disliked volume.
