THE MICHIGAN DAILY
By MARGARET PITALAN
Of outstanding importance each
spring is the tapping of new members
to Mortarboard, national honorary
society for women. Each year, in ac-
cordance with a custom more than
25 years old, junior women judged
worthy in consideration of the na-
tional qualifications of scholarship,
service, and leadership, are honored
with invitations to membership.
Mortarboard was inaugurated on
this campus in the early years of thej
century, and was included in the na-
tional organization when that group
was officially founded Feb. 16, 1918,
at Syracuse, N. Y., combining four
charter chapters. Originally there
were four local clubs begun on the
different campuses of Cornell Univer-
sity, Ohio State University, Swarth-
more, and the University of Michi-
gan, designed to honor in their senior
year outstanding women, affiliated or
independent, who had been promi-
nent in campus activities and had
measured up to certain standards of
scholarship. Mortarboard's present
enrollment is 52 chapters; and many
of its members, national and local,
have become prominent in the busi-
ness and professional world.
Nationally, new members are chosen
by the old, in the latter part of Feb-
ruary or in the first two weeks of
March. On this campus, they are
picked at the latter time and official-
ly announced at the installation ban-
quet held the first or second week in
May to formally inaugurate the new-
ly-elected League oficials. A his-
toric taipping ceremony is enacted.
The old members in their mortar-
board caps and senior gowns tap the
women chosen and present them with
their. caps which are to be worn for
the first time on campus the follow-
iug day. These women so picked are
formally initiated the week following.
This year's membership includes
10 womren of the senior class: Vin-
selle Bartlett, Jean Botsford, Bar-.
bar a Braun, Aileen Clark, Helen De-
Witt, Jane Fecheimer, Katherine
Heesen, Margaret Keal, Evelyn Neil-j
son, Jane Rayen. By national re-
quirements the minimum member-
ship is 8, the maximum left to the
discretion of the local group.
The matter of choice on the score
of activity is also left largely to the
local chapter. The Michigan society
includes in this consideration the
total number of activity points
earned by the women in their two I
and one-half years on campus pre-
ceding the spring of their junior
year and, in addition, the type and
value of activity for which the points
were gained. The scholarship re-
quirements demand a B average, al-
though in exceptoinal cases a lower
average is acceptable. In choosing
next year's Mortarboard members the
time available to be devoted to the
group's activities will be taken into
The projects carried on by this
year's members have included the
operation of candy booths in various
sorority houses. Pi Beta Phi, Delta
Gamma, Kappa Delta, Alpha Xi
Delta, and Delta Delta Delta, are in-
cluded in the list. Most of the mem-
bership energy has been expended on
financial efforts in order to provide
a permanent working fund for future
Socially the group has been a
happy one, according to Barbara
Braun, president, meeting for tea
every other week, and holding private
informal dinners on alternate weeks.
Dormitories have been entertain-
ing guests at tea and supper recently.
