Assembly anquet Draws Large Gathering Of Non-Affiliated1


First Annual
Dinner Is Held
At The League
Scholarship Presentations1
Are Made By Dean Lloyd;
Muyskens Speaks
The organization of independent
women on campus was climaxed last
night with the first Annual Assembly
Banquet held in the ballroom of the
League. Over 450 non-affiliated wom-
en attended the affair which marked
the beginning of the unification of
other than sorority women. Betty
Hill, '35, was general chairman of the
Scholarship awards were made to
individual member of the sophomore,
junior and senior classes and to Alum-
nae Residence which had the highest
scholastic record for the last year.
Cups were presented to Mary Eliza-
beth Luny, '35, Ailene Brunson, '36,
and Walterine Hertsch, '37.
Lloyd Makes Awards
Dean Alice C. Lloyd made the pre-
sentation of the awards which were
announced by Registrar Ira B. Smith.
In commending the organization back
of the banquet, Dean Lloyd, advised
the independent women that there
was a place for them in the new sys-
tem of student government if they
but made themselves known.
"What student government can
teach that makes it worth the time
and attention of University students
is the lesson of learning to know and
to work with other personalities, Dean
Lloyd said. She concluded by urging
the non-affiliated women to "see all
their opportunities here and to use
them to the,utmost."
Dorothy Sanders, '35, was tosat-
master and introduced the principal
speaker, Prof. John H. Muyskens of
the Department of Speech.
Professor Muyskens discussed the
k"Change of Meanings" in which he
analyzed why things have meanings
and how meanings can change when
looked at in the light of a different
situation. "Change of Meanings, he'
stated "is simply the history of ideas,
and how each age gave its emphasis
on these meanings."
Theologists Give Meanings
The theologists, feeling that words1
could not lie because they were given
by God, contribute, definite mean-
ings to words which have never
changed, he explained and went on
to say that the philosophers con-
tributed the abstract and concrete
words, the former having only one
real meaning which never changes,;
Words such as education and Chris-
tianity were used to illustrate the fact
that abstract words fitting the im-
portant vowels of life are those which
have the fewest labels, Professor;
Muyskens said.
In order to understand the meaningj
of a word, psychology of the situation
in which the word is used must bej
known, he explained. Thus, in orderj
to understand the writings of any,
great poet and to appreciate them as
great poetry, he explained, the readerj
must know and interpret the expe-
rience the poet had before writing the
The last contributing factor to
meaning the speaker concluded, is the
biological factor. There is evidence
he stated, that there are in the child,
condition by contact with mother,
school, etc., human reflexes which
also influence the meaning of words.
Dr. Rell Presents Cup
Dr. Margaret Bell presented to Lu-
cille Wieman, captain of the winning
independent hockey team, the Hockey
Cup. Maxine Maynard, '35, president
of the League, presented the individ-
ual scholarship awards.

Working with Miss Hill on the ban-
quet committee were Helene Gram,
'35, chairman of entertainment, Mar-
garet Kasely, in charge of decorations,
Catherine England, '35, finance; Mary
Louise Schaake, chairman of patron-
esses; and Geraldine Ruf, '35, in
charge of food arrangements.
During the dinner Michigan songs
were sung and a trio, Dorothy Vale,
'36, Jeanne McLean, '36, and Rachel
Lease, '36, entertained.
The Assembly Board was created
this year for the first time in an or-
der to more closely unify non-affiliat-
ed women. It is made up of repre-
