that the President's proposal to re-

"She" was Kate L. Landrum, '37,
formerly president of the Women's
Athletic Association; "it" was the
Union Coffee Hour; and the occa-
sion: the first time an undergraduate
woman poured.
"I think it's an excellent plan, in
fact, I wish women on campus had
something like it. Its informality is
striking-the fellows just go over to
a table and introduce themselves."
"We were afraid that some of the
men would object to this invasion of
the sanctity of the coffee hour,"

To which, Richard C. Fuller of
the sociology department answered,
"We have a political judiciary now."
Mr. Fuller emphasized that a case,
of strict versus loose construction was
not involved. Rather, he said, there
was a serious conflict of economic
"It has been demonstrated," he
added, "by the Conservatives, that
the way in which Roosevelt proceeds
does not appeal to the Conservative
bloc. What it amounts to is that the
conservative majority is .conducting
a sitdown strike against the presi-
dential policies."
Arguing that the bill would, in ef-
feet, not pack the Court, Mr. Fuller
said that "President Roosevelt does
hope to appoint an open-minded ju-
diciary. If that is packing the Court,
I'm for it."
Criticizing the impatience of the
American people, Professor Aigler de-
clared that if there were any wave3

day upsets all these predictions."
' Asked whether co-eds would re-
spond to an invitation, Miss Landrum
i eplied, "I believe so, though so few
of them know about the affair and
about the Union. The traditional re-
strictions on women in the Union
mightieven keep them away."
"The cof ee hours," Geib explained,
"were instituted at about the begin-
ning of the semester, in order to im-
prove social relations between the
students and faculty members. Dur-
ing that time, there has been an in-
crease in daily attendance from an
average of 25 daily to 70."
He announced that this would be
the last week in the series. Other
undergraduate women who will pour
during the remainder of the week,
are Elsie A. Pierce, '37, managing
editor of The Daily, today; Harriet
