Discusses House Rules, Committee
On World Fellowship, And
Point System
With the addition of freshman
members to the Women's League,
Margaret Bush, '30, p r e s i d e n t,
found it advisable to make the fol-
lowing statements yesterday in ex-
planation of the phases and func-
tions of the League.
"Every woman automatically be-
comes a member of the Women's
League upon registering in the
University. It is her privilege to
have a part in making the rules,
through the representative from
her house, by which she lives and
carries on a share in the activities
of the campus. The Committee on
House Organization sends out to
every house, at the beginning of
every year, a. copy of the house
rules which have been approved by
the League. These are posted in a
place easily available for reference.
In the event that any house has
not a copy of these rules, Elizabeth
De Vol, '30, chairman of the Com-
mittee on House Drganization, an-
nounces that house rules are now
in effect. The closing hours dur-
ing the week are 10:30 o'clock, for
Friday 1:30, Saturday 12:30, and
Sunday 11:00.
In describing the functions of
the Point System which also comes
under t h e jurisdiction of the
League, Miss Bush continued: "Our
Point System is one of the finest
in the country. Its object is to
divide the participation in campus
activities as evenly and fairly as
possible among the women who are
interested in executive work of an i
extra-curricular nature. To do this
it limits every woman to a .maxi-
mum of fourteen points at any.
one time. A copy of the Point Sys-
tem rules is issued to every ap-
proved 'house at about the same
time as the house rules.
"The candy booth in University
Hall is a department of the League,
the pioceeds from which go to the
Undergraduate Campaign f u n d.
The committee for the Undergrad-
uate Campaign fund have been
very active for the last few years
and have recently taken out two
50,000 dollar pledges. Various plans
are made every year to make mon-
ey for the fund. One plan which
is carried out every year is the
League Bazaar, to whicli every
woman is expected to contribute.
Announcements will be made soon
concerning the arrangements for
the bazaar this year.J
"A World Fellowship Committee,
made up of one half foreign stu-
dents and one half American stu-
dents, deals with the problems of,
the foreign students in the Uni-
versity. This committee of the
League sponsor a Thanksgiving
dinner every year for the foreign
students, thus making it possible
for a large group to enjoy the day
"In the past it has been cus-l
tomary for the League frequently

There are still places for
women students who wish to
earn part of their expenses
while in Ann Arbor. Already em-
ployment has been found by the
office of the advisers to women
in faculty homes and other pri-
vate homes in Ann Arbor for
about sixty women. There are
40 who are earning their board
and room, 7 earning room only,
and 12 earning their board.
There is also opportunity to do
office work.
Work by the hour includes
care of children, housework, and
serving. Those who wish to ap-
ply for employment may do so
through the office of the advis-
ers to women by leaving their
names at the desk.
An organization providing so-
cial opportunities for women
who are earning their own way
is Beta Kappa Rho. It meets
several evenings a month. In-
formation is to be obtained at
the office of the Advisers.

Inexpensive Meals
Being Featured By
League Management
That dollar-a-day will buy three
(wholesome meals for the student
who eats at the League cafeteria
this year. Mrs. Grace Hollister,
1 who has recently taken over the
management of the dining room,
has planned special meals where-
by nourishing and attractive foodl
can be obtained for a reasonable
Luncheon, priced at 35 cents, in-
cludes a main dish, rolls and but-
ter, and choice of a drink. The
dinner at 50 cents offers, besidesl
the main dish, a salad, rolls and
butter, choice of a drink, and a
dessert. This leaves 15 cents to be
expended upon breakfast, making
a total of a dollar.
Mrs. Hollister has been with the
Women's City Club of Detroit for
nine years. As her assistant she
now has Miss Dorothy Smith, who
also worked with her in Detroit.
A change in the personnel of the
kitchen includes the addition of
the chefs who worked under Mrs.
Hollister in Detroit.
With the adoption of this pro-
gram of special meals, the League
is ready to offer students an eco-
nomical opportunity which has not
been available formerly. Mrs. Hol-
lister believes that this plan will
be successful, as patrons will finl
that the food is palatable, as well
as wholesome and nourishing, and
yet is easily within extent of the
daily allowance.
