Eight Undergraduates and One
Alumna Will Take Places
on Committee
To care for all house rules and
social regulations of the League
building, the Alumnae Board of
the League has asked eight under-
graduates and one alumna to act
in the capacity of a House com-'
niittee, it was announced yesterday.
Accordingly, an invitation was ex-
tended to the following women:
Margaret Bush, '30, Jean Wallace,
,30, Helen Fellows, '30, Margaret
Babcock,C'50, Helen Humphrey, '31,
Eleanor Cook, '31, Jeannie Roberts,
'32, Dorothy Bordzell, '32, and Mrs.
Shirley Smith. Miss Bush, now{
president of the League, willactI
as chairman of the committee.a{
This will be a committee of the
league building and not of the
Board of Directors of the League.
Previously, the Library committee,{
which is a committee of the Board
of Directors, has functioned as a
House committee, but in the future
their duties will be separate from
those of the newly appointed House
committee. The duties of the Li-
brary committee will be exclusively
those connected with the League
Library, while the House commit-
tee will have charge of rules re-
garding house guests, disorderly
conduct about the building, and
will make arrangements for the
dances and parties to be given in
the League.

Chinese Graduates
I Present Embroidery
For League Building,
Dr. Me lung Ting, '20 Med., back
in the University for research work
in Pediatrics, recently presented an
unusual piece of embroidery to the
League from the Chinese women
who graduated from Michigan and,
who are now' stationed in China.
The piece of embroidery, over 100
years old and of the Manchu dyn-
asty, was originally made into an
imperial robe that was worn at re-
ligious ceremonies., The robe has
been relined and made into-two
separate pieces, a large piano cover
and a table cover.
Because of the'age sand exquisite
workmanship of the two pieces of
embroidery, they are going to be
placed under glass and hung in the

Zwerdling's furs have been meeting
the requirements of highly discriminat-
ing clientele for 23 years. Our interests

finer ty-e of furs. And as custom fur.
riers, with comulete manufacturing and
