System Especially Advantageous
To Freshman Women, Says
Mrs. Holcomb
"A high standard for league
houses is set by the cooperation be-
tween the Advisors of Women of
the University and the Women's
Housing League," states Mrs. Isa-
belle Holcomb, president of that or-
ganization. Recently Mrs. Holcomb
was also made president of the Ann
Arbor High School Parent-Teach-
ers' Association.
"There is a splendid system work-
ing by which the president of each
league house on the campus is kept
in touch with all the issues pertain-
ing to women and rules relating to
activities of women. Quiet hours,
for instance, are observed from 8-11
a. m., 1:30-5, and 7:30-10:30 each
day. The medium between the Ad-
visers of Women and the women on
the campus is the Board of Repre-
sentatives, of which each houseE
president becomes automatically aI
member when she is elected by the
girls in her league house. This
board, meeting at frequent inter-
vals, promotes free discussion of all
league house problems," Mrs. Hol-
comb continued.
Favors Student Self-Government
"A league house is particularly
advantageous to freshman women,"
she said. "The compartively small
group of girls and the interest of
a house head in each girl as an
individual is conducive to a satis-
factory environment for study and
recreation. Then, too, the president
of each league house has a great
deal of power and responsibility, so
that the attitude and demand of
the other girls is carefully consid-
ered at all times.
"I am in favor of sudent self-
government as it now exists, in the l

the relations. This continued co-
operation should eventually pro-
duce uniform rules for all dormi-
tories and sororities as well as for
league houses.
Freedom Is Character of Place
"Freshman women have a good
deal of freedom," Mrs. Holcomb
continued. "During their first se-
mester on the campus, they are per-
mitted to be out three nights out
of seven-the week-end nights; and
and Monday, also, if they are
pledges of sororities, to attend
meetings. With the addition of one
midweek date during their second
semester, thus making four or five
nights out of seven, one can read-
ily see htat the rules as passed by
the board are exceedingly reason-
"The recent new ruling which
changed the 11 o'clock limit for
guests in the league houses on
week-end nights to 11:30 o'clock, is
another evidence of the compara-
tively large amount of freedom
which women on the campus en-
"At present there Is some con-
troversy over the changing of 'this
11:30 o'clock limit to 1:30 Friday
nights and 12:30 on Saturdays. If
this rule will be installed, I be-
lieve it will grant too much free-
dom entirely," said Mrs. Holcomb.
"As well as. being almost unfair to
the househeads, it cannot help but
do harm to the women, particularly
freshman women."
This suggested change was dis-
cussed at a recent meeting of the
Board of Representatives, and will
probably be voted upon before the
close of the school year.
Extends Welcome To New Women
"In behlaf of the league house-
heads, I wish to extend a cordial
greeting to all women entering next
fall," Mrs. Holcomb concluded. "We
try to present a homelike atmos-
phere in the houses and to insure
all possible comforts as far as we
