o'clock tonight in the Women's Ath-
letic building. Invitations have
been sent out to all new women stu-
dents, but in case any entering wo-
man has not received an invitation

The reception has - been planned
by the advisers in order that they
i may have an opportunity to meet
the new women students, and also
in order to give new students an
opportunity to become acquainted
with those women identified with
the University who are especially
interesting to them. Besides the
entering students, a number of the
wives of the Deans and women on
the faculty of the University, will
be present at the 'reception.
Mary White, '29, president of the
Women's League, Dr. Margaret
Bell, head of the physical educa-
tion department for women, and

Women's Athletic association, are

a single dean. Since there are three,
advisers instead of the single dean,
I believe that the student body re-
spects more deeply their opinion.
Decisions in student affairs have
a chance to be more fair and cer-
tainly less personal if several view-
points are molded into a decision.
There is an indefinable security in
the knowledge that a judiciously
minded group rather than an in-
dividual is treating various import-
ant questions.
"Although the mechanical effi-
ciency may be increased by such at
system as this, there must be a
further benefit to accompany it if
it is to be successful. The intangi-
ble, more personal side of the ad-j
visers themselves greatly influence
the success of the system, of course.
"As a member of the senior- class,"
Miss Smither continued, "I heartily
believe that for the three years
during which this system of ad-
visers has operated, there has been
a tone of cooperative, mutual har-!
mony between the student wornen!
and the adviseTs. The latter have
given untiring support to the un-
dergraduates both, in organizations
and as individuals. Understanding
and foresight, I believe, have been
those intangible contributions'

as ours. The Freshman Pageant,
for instance, is managed by student
chairmen under the advice of both
the Advisory Committee and the
physical education department.
Both contribute equally to the suc-
cess of this student activity.
"We have grown away from the1
old, protected atmosphere of laws
and rules that characterized the
girls' school into the wider, clearer
field of personal responsibility.
What few rules we do have are
made by the student body itself+
and, what is more I believe, these
regulations are heartily indorsed
by the advisers in their decisions.
"As a member of one of the large
dormitories here at Michigan,"
Miss Smither concluded, "I canj
say that where the oppression of
