Organization In School Of Music
Similar To Women's League
TO ELECT THIS MONTH
Nominations for officers of the
Symphonic league for the year 19'28~
1929 were made yesterday afternoon
at the School of Music by, the nom-
inating com-mittee of the league. The
Symphonic league is the women's or-
ganization of the School of Music,
corresponding to the Women's league
of the University.
The women nonlinated for office
are as follows: president, Carolyn
G. Slepicka, '29, and Helen L. Bus-
sert; vice-president, Dorothy P.,Wil-
son, and Helen N. Marin; secretary,
Beth Seairles, and Madeline Brooks;
treasurer, Natalie Donaldson and
Mable E. Herrick; social chairman,
Orma F. Weber.
Elections will be held the third
week of this month, the exact date
not yet having been fixed,
The president of the Symphonic
League becomes automatically, by
virtue of the office, a member of the
Student council of the School. The
other*members of the council are
the president of the 'men's organiza-
tion, and three other members elect,
ed by the School. There are also two
faculty advisers: Mrs. Harry Bacher,
dean of women, and Mr. Otto Stahl.
The annual activities of the Syn-
phonic league included a candy kit-
chen and sale, the proceeds of which
are used to pay for the annual ban-
quet of the School of Music. This
banquet is sponsored by the league,
but is attended by all students dreg-
istered in the School. The league also
awards a scholarship cup each se-.
mrester to the woman having the
highest grades, both in her music
courses and in any courses which
she may be taking in the University.
If a woman wins this cup for three
consecutive semesters she is allow-
ed to keep it permanently.
Guild Branch To Be
Organized In Boston
"Having a college education gives
advantages to the girl. who desires a
buyers position although it can't pos-
sibly be a substitute for actual ex-
perience," states Miss I. Hohlenkamp,
the buyer for Mack's dress depart-
ment. She went on to further explain
her stand on the question whether a
college education for a future buyer
Iis worth the four years it takes out of
her business experience.
One might at first be tempted to
say that the four years of college is
of no value in the business world, be-
cause a girl must have personality.
No education can give her that," said
Miss Hohlenkamp. "But so many
girls leave high school at a very
young age. Often they would flound-
er around hardly knowing what to do.
MEN IN CHOOCSINVG
"Pull many a flower, born to bloom
unseen" was never conceived with a.
college town as a setting. For, ac-
cording to the owners of various local
flower shops, if a man doesn't knov
just what kind of flowers he wents to
buy, some woman will soon teach him
and no two teachers are the same.
This instruction will come either from
Certainly those first few years spent
in college would be much more valu-
able than what their clumsy efforts at
acquiring experience. In school they
get a finesse which is a great asset.
"Through studies in psychology you
learn to analyze people, which quality
is an absolute requisite in this posi-
tion, and your work becomes much
more Interesting to you. It is neces-
sary that you have plenty of interest
or the goal can't be reached.
"There is one other thing that col-
lege does which is difficult, to eval-
uate. Many young b eop'led not
know how to concentrate and think
properly. While the actual courses
you take are not practical for busi-
ness purposes they often teach one
how to apply her mind.
"Being a buyer is a difficult posi-
tion. She must be a prophet. Here in
Ann Arbor is a much harder place to
work than in a large department store
in Detroit. There things are bought
in lots, for in'a large city no matter
what is shown customers are plentiful,
while here if just the right thing is
not displayed,.it must go unsold. Col-
lege clients are very particular, and
a small thing wrong may prejudice
