recording secretary of Panhellenic
Society at a special meeting held yes-
terday at the League. Miss Scroggie
will replace Helen Jean Dean, '39,

Panhellenic Society elected early this
month are Stephanie Parfet, '39,
president; Harriet Pomeroy, '39,
treasurer, and Alys Pierce, '39, rush-
ing secretary.

Benny (oodman's Swing,
Whiteman And (ershwin
Remain In Background
Fi anck's D Minor Symphony and
Brahms' "First," rank highest in the
hearts of Ann Arbor's student music
lovers. So say Alice Hoffman, Grad.
and Dorothy Woodruff, Gra., who
're in a position to know.
Miss Hoffman and Miss Woodruff
are operators for the electrical phon-
ograph, gift of the Carnegie Founda-
tion, which is installed in the League
concourse, and they handle all re-
quests for records to be played.
Classics Are est Liked
"Out of 950 recordings, selections
from these two symphonies have been
most frequently demanded," Miss
Woodruff said.
Other favorites are Tschaikowsky's
Sixth Symphony, any of Beethoven's
works and any of Wagner's, according
to Miss Woodruff. "It is a curious fact
that very few modern recordings are
asked for," Miss Woodruff said, "and
we have quite a few of Gershwin's
compositions, some Paul Whiteman
records and one or two Benny Good-
man numbers." Also low on the list
are solos by vocalists, however fa-

Oicer IS Iected
By Voters' Leagru
The annual meeting of the Ann

Arbor division of the League of
Women Voters was held recently to
elect officers. Mrs. Edward Bryant
will succeed as president Mrs. William
A dinner was held in conjunction
with the meeting at which were hon-
ored members of the state civil serv-
ice commission and Michigan Merit

for three general reasons, in Miss
Woodruff's opinion. Some come for'
the pure esthetic enjoyment of lis-
tening to good music, others with spe-
cial musical interests, such as piano,c
come to listen for points of technique,]
and then there are those who wishI
to add to their own collection of re-
cordings and come to the League on a
record shopping tour.c
"We play everything the studentsI
ask for," Miss Hoffman pointed out,1
"and we try to play all numbers in
their entirety.' Sometimes, though
this is a little hard on other listeners,

opera is long. There is one student.

quently demands the Bach B minor'
