LIFE1MEMBERSHIP IS
OFFERED TO SNIORS
Add tion To Tuition Of Women Stu-l
dents Counts Toward Member-
ship I Leaguea
WILL INTERVIEW SENIORS
The attention of all senior woment
is called to the fact that if life mem-
bership pledges in the Women's1
league are paid for by the time of3
graduation they may be had for $40.E
The ruling which was made at the re- .
quest of. the undergraduate women to t
pay $10 on the tuition fee toward lifeF
membership was pas'sed by the Reg-
ents, so every woman student whG
entered this year has paid $10 on her
membership.
From now on, undergraduate wom-
en, if they remain in college for four
years, receive life membership in the
league when they are graduated. The
same opportunity 4is offered all
seniors, providing the $40 is paid by
commencement. This applies also toi
all members of the Nurses Training
school and to all University School,
of Music 'students of collegiate age.
Marie Hartwig, '29, is chairman of
a committee to interview all seniort
women who have not already signed1
for life membership. The Alumnit
council office is very desirous of re-1
ceiving .as many pledges as possible
according to Mrs. Wm. D. Henderson',
in order that no further campaign will
be necessary when the seniors leave
college. If the pledges already made
are not paid before graduation, they
will be $50.
Provide Lunches For
Lantern Night Picnic
To Be Held Tuesday
For those who do not live in organ-
ized houses yet who wish to put up
box-lunches for the Lantern Night
picnic next Tuesday night, a commit-
tee is preparing 'some for sale. They
will contain, among other things, po-
tato salad, several kinds of sandwich-t
es, fruit, and cake, the entire box to be
priced at 50 cents. Coffee'will also,
be served with them at Palmer field.
These will have to be ordered be-
fore Monday noon by signing on bul-
letins posted for the purpose at the
candy booth, Barbour gymnasium, and
the athletic building, or by telephon-
ing Bernice Shook, dial 21616, chair-
man of the committee. They are to be
obtained on Tuesday night from tables
set up near the old field house on
Palmer field.
Seniors Overwhelm
Sophomore Baseball
Team By_14-3 Score
In the interclass base ball game,
which was played yesterday at 4
o'clock, between the seniors and
sophomores, the senior team gained
the overwhelming victory of 14-3.
Errors were made by both teams,
but the senior batting, and general
co-operation was better, than that of
the sophomores. The pitchers on both
teams were efficient but the work of
the senior battery, Robinson, pitcher,
and Child, catcher, both speedy and
sure.
The game was played outside in
spite of the uncompromising weather,
and both team's wero considerhly
handicapped in this respect.
NOTICES
There will be a meeting of the
Board of Representatives at 9 o'clock
tomorrow morning in room 102 Li-

All women wishing to enter the{
bowling tournament should sign up
on the bulletin board by noon today,

tournament can be completed.
Busses will run to the golf course
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and
Thursday, and very likely on Friday.
and Saturday. They will leave in
front of Barbour gymnasium at 2:10,

turn from the course at 3, 4, and 5:45

Many -3eanings Given to Lanterns
At present Lantern Night includes
a box supper at about 5:30 to which
everyone in the University of Michi-
gan, and in Ann Arbor or its vicinity,
both men and women, is welcomed, a
dance pageant by the freshman wo-
men, a dance drama by Orchesis danc-
ing society, a march by all of the
college women on the field, only the
men and townspeople remaining as
spectators, the passing of lighted lan-
terns to the junior women by the
senior women, and of garlanded hoops
to the sophomore women by the jun-
ior women, the formation of a block
M and singing. The ten leaders of the
line of march are selected by the wo-
men's organizations on the campus
assisted by the faculty as those who
have been, in general, the leaders of
the class during the year.
Various interpretations have been
assigned to the lanterns from which
the ceremony takes its name. They
have been said to represent the bright-
ness of college days which the seniors
are leaving for the junior class, the
responsibility of the seniors' which
is to be assumed by the juniors, or
the progress of the classes. Probably
nothing definite is embodied in the
lighted lanterns. They simply have
a meaning for the Michigan woman
which can be grasped by no one else,
and by no one who has not actually
either received a lantern as a junior
or given it away as a senior. It is this
meaning which the woman who only
stands on the side-lines is missing, a
valuable treasure from which she is
cheating herself if she does not take
part.

SPORTS CONFERENCE
A sport's conference for high school
girls, which is being sponsored by
both the W.A.A. and the department of
Physical Education for women, will
be held in Ann Arbor, .Tuesday, and
Wednesday, May 15 and 16.
The purpose of this conference is to
interest and help high school 'students
with athletics in their own schools,
and to show them what women here
are doing. This conference also pro-
vides an opportunity to lessen the
gap between college and high, school
life, and at the same time will give
them a chance to learn about campus
activities and institutions of the Uni-
versity of Michigan.
The program, which has been ar-
ranged to entertain the members of
the conference during their brief stay
in Ann Arbor, will include exhibi-
tions, by the students of the major
school, luncheons, teas, meetings, dis-
cussions, and various inspections and
tours of the university.
The delegates to the conference, 84
of whom have accepted the invita-
tions, will be greeted by Miss Alice
Lloyd, adviser to women at Michigan,
and immediately following this they
will be addressed, by Dr. Margaret
Bell, head of the department of phy-
sical education*for women, Gladys
Appelt, '28, President of the W.A.A.,
and Mary White, '29, President-elect
of the Women's league. President
Little will be unable to speak at the
conference as he will be out of town.
Tuesday evening, the delegates will
be guests to the Lantern Night pro-
gram and the Freshman pageant.
On Wednesday, a Play day has been
planned for them. This activity has
already been used in other schools to
take the place of intercollegiate com-
petition, for instead of teams being
made up of only members of one
school, different members from all
schools will be on one team. The
competition will lie interscholastic,
I but have mixed teams.
