CHANGE IN ATTITUDE
New Form of Special Permission Cards
Places More Responsibility
SEEK LESS FORMALITY
With the change of organization
efected in the government of women
students last year, when the single
supervisionby a dean of women was
abolished fo an advisory office com-
posed of three women, a number of
improvements were set under way.
The work was divided among the
three advisers, although all retained
their interest in the whole, and an at-
tempt was made to become more in-
timate and less formal with the uni-
versity women. The latest step in
this direction are weekly college teas
held each Thursday afternoon at which
the advisers are hostesses.
Now comes a change which is sig-
nificant not only as a form but more
so because it indicates the new atti-
tude which has been adopted by the
advisers toward the students. Al-
though it is a mere detail in the reg-
ulation 6f the office, it represents a
new standard. It deals with a stand-
ard card used in granting special per-
mission with regard to matters not
falling directly tnder the usual house
The old blank read that Miss So and
So "has special permission to" carry
out her desired plans on such and,
such a date. This was signed by a
member of the advisory office, fur-
ther verified by the house chap-
erone, dated and returned by the ap-
plicant at a specified time. The dean
in this manner passed judgment up-
on any irregularities in the life of the
student from day to day, such as shop-
ping trips into Detroit during the
week, absence from her house over
night during the week, and the like.
The card as revised bears the date,
of course, and is also signed by both
the adviser's office and the house head,

Two New Houses To Its Organization

Aiming to relieve the housing situa-
tion in Ann Arbor to some extent, the
board of governors of Helen Newberry
residence decided last spring to take
charge d: Stoughton and Parmelee
cottages and to treat them as units of
Newberry residence. The two small
houses are situated on Maynard street
just across from Newberry. Owned by
the university, they were remodeled
and furnished by the board of direc-
tors of Helen Newberry residence, and
are in operation this year.
The women who live in Stoughton
and Parmelee are brought into close
contact with the residents of New-
berry. Taking their meals together,
the women of the three houses are
generally well acquainted with each
other, a thing which is an advantage to
the Newberry women as well as to
those who live in the cottages. The
women are allowed to visit the other
houses to study during the evening,
and save for a healthy feeling of
rivalry, there exists a delightful
esprit-du-corps, according to Miss
Tanner, social director of the three
There is only one student organiza-
tion, the meetings of which are held at
Newberry. Officers are chosen from
the entire group and each of the
cottages has its own representative
on the student executive board. More
restrictions are necessary in such a
large group than are observed by the
smaller women's houses on campus.
These restrictions are strictly obeyed
and each of the cottages has its own,
Stoughton and Parmelee are includ-
ed in all Newberry's social events. It
is even whispered that on one occasion
the women who reside in the cottages
went to a pajama party at Newberry.
Except for two women who have
lived in Helen Newberry residence be-
fore, all of the inhabitants of Stough-
ton and Parmelee are new on campus
With new paint and paper, the two
cottages are gay and attractive and
the furniture throughout is very hand-
"The problems of a group of 103
women are not very different from
those of a group of 86," said Miss
Tanner, 'and since we are really
succeeding in what we aimed to do,
we are all happy in our new venture."
