The Union officials are appointed
upon a merit basis by members of
the Union board of directors after
seekers for the positions of president
and secretary have made formal ap-
plication, been interviewed, and rec-

the League - the president, vice-
president, secretary, and treasurer-
are elected by all the women on cam-

representatives, especially recruited
for that duty. Both appointments
and elections take place in the spring

students to serve as an electoral
board. That board elects a president
and a recording secretary to serve for
one year from a group of applicants,
all of whom are members of the ex-
ecutive council of the Union.
The council is composed, of juniors
who have served since their fresh-
man years in increasingly important
capacities in the Union organization.
The electoral board, immediately
after its appointment, calls for pe-
titions from applicants. The peti-
tions, for the most part, ordinarily
include a survey of what the indi-
vidual has done on campus, what he
has done in the Union, and what he
will do should he be appointed.
