Assembly Banquet to be held Dec. 3,
Betty Hill, '35, chairman of the ban-
quet announced recently.
Professor Muyskens has spoken at
the freshman advisors' meetings this
fall and gave the sixth Orientation

fore the non-affiliated women on cam-
pus will be on "Change of Mean-
This is the first time that any or-
ganization of the independent women
has been attempted, and it is hoped
by the committee that this first proj-
ect of the year will receive the sup-
port of all non-affiliated women. The.

nual Panhellenic Banquet given for
all the sorority women on campus.
In place of the scholarship award
given to a sorority group, three awards
will be given to individual girls who
have rated the highest scholastically
during the time spent on this campus.
RIegistrar Ira Smith will announce
the awards and Dean Alice C. Lloyd
will present them.

end entertainment.

Betty Hill, '35, is chairman of theI
first Assembly Banquet for non-affil-
iated women. The banquet is to be
held Dec. 3 in the League.
Society Meets For
Project Discussion
The members of Alpha Kappa Delta,S
sociological society, recently held a
meeting at the home of Prof. Arthur
D. Wood, for the purpose of discuss-
ing a project which Professor Wood
and Eridmann Beynon, of the sociology
department, are preparing for publi-
The project is a study of the atti-
tudes of the Polish people in this
country. The facts of the study are
being gathered in the Polish city,
Hamtramck. When completed, the!
book will compare the lives of the
peasants in their native land with
those of the people in America.

Of vital interest to every woman on
campus is the publication through
the League of a new scale of merit
points for activities, in accordance
with the Merit System, now func-
tioning in the administration.
Revisions Made
The new scale is essentially similai
to the old point system, but a num-
bhr of revisions and changes make
the merits more representative of per-
sonal efficiency than before. One of
the most important changes now irn
operation is that the head of every
activity shall decide whether each
woman working under her deserves
the maximum number of points al-
lowed for the activity. Thus the dis-
tribution of merits will depend not
only upon the number of activities.
engaged in, but also upon the qual-'
ities of personal efficiency ,.and dili-
gence displayed.
Explain Types of Points
Again the difference between tem-
porary and permanent points receives
increased emphasis in the new scale.
Temporary merits are given to ac-
tivities, the duties of which do not
extend throughout the whole year,
and to those which require less re-
sponsibility. Permanent points are
awarded for activities requiring work
throughout the year, and also en-
tailing due responsibility. Thus fresh-
man women may receive one tem-
porary point for attending eight
Orientation lectures, whereas a mem-
ber of Freshman Glee. Club receives
a permanent point, since this activ-
ity lasts for the year.
Certain requirements limit the
number of activities in which one may
engage. The maximum number of
merit points anyone may carry for a
semester is 14. A scholarship. rating

_ 1

of at least "C" average is also re-
quired, with no absolute failure for the
past semester. Freshman women and
upperclass transfers are not allowed
to participate in regular activities
during the first semester of their
Records Filed
The record "of points for every
woman on campus is kept on file at
the League. Under the Merit System
of choosing League officers and chair-
men for various class projects, tihis
record is consulted to indicate the ex-
perience of candidates. Again the rec-
ord is of use in selecting members
for various honor societies. The fil-
ing of these points is under the charge
of, the Merit System Committee of
the League.
The new scale has beery published
in the form of a booklet, listing in
order all campus activities and offices
with the merits given for each. Copies
will be distributed to all sororities,
dormitories and league houses. Any-
one wishing one may also procure it in

A recent announcement in The
Daily Official Bulletin to the effect
that the class in Scandinavian 151
would not meet on the scheduled day
surprised more than one reader. Com-
paratively few students realize the
extent of the courses in unusual for-
eign languages offered on this camp-
us. As a matter of fact, the major-
ity of students think Spanish, French,
German, and perhaps even Latin and
Greek make up the entire foreign.
language department.
Just a glance through the catalogue
will reveal the opportunities afforded
each semester in the department of
the Oriental, Scandinavian and Rus-
sian languages and literatures. Many
of the courses dealing with religious
history, Biblical literature, geography,
and history are of course conducted
in English, yet there are courses in
the study of these various cultures
through introductoryand advanced
study of the languages themselves.
Among the most unusual languages
offered are Hebrew, Assyrian, Ara-
maic, Arabic, Coptic, Ethiopic, Syr-
ian, Russian and Scandinavian. Of
these, Aramaic was the language
spoken in the time of Christ. Since
parts of the Bible are written in Ara-
maic, many students preparing for
the theological seminary take this
course to interpret the Bible in its

original form. Many ministers take
the course for a Master's degree.
The Assyrian languages apply to
ancient Babylonia and Assyria. Sev-1
eral hundred tablets collected by
archaeologists are in possession of
the Oriental language department.
The Assyrians used these to write on,
and baked them to make the writing
permanent. Many of these are being
translated for publication.
Coptic was the language of the
Egyptian Christian church from about
250 A.D. to the 16th century, while
Ethiopic was the sacred language
of the Church of Abyssinia. Arabic,
which embraces Arabia, persia, Syria,
Palestine, Egypt, Turkey, Sudan and
Northern Africa, has existed for 1300
The Russian language is becoming
more important because of the growth
of Russia in intellectual, political and
commercial activities. Courses are
given in the elements of the language
and the country's literature. In ad-
dition to these unusual languages
there are many courses offered stu-
dents in the Scandinavian language
. Most Students American
It is an interesting fact that every
year there is a supply of studentsI
who take these unusual courses for
their cultural and not technical value.
The majority of these students are
Americans, not foreigners, and
strangely enough many of them who
are working their way through school
have less time to spend on their work
than the average student.
It has been found that those stu-
dents make the greatest success who
have had no remarkable acquaint-'
ance with foreign languages before
taking these unusual courses. Amer-
icans learn a language as easily as
anyone, but having been brought up
with the idea that they cannot speak
a foreign tongue, hesitate to study
an unusual language. But it is a well
known fact that the best way to study
a civilization is through learning the
language itself.
