Orientation Petitioning
Work Ends Tomorrow
Petitioning for positions for next
fall's Orientation Period will begin
today and continue through tomorrow
in the League Undergraduate Offices.
This will be the only time petitions for
these positions will be accepted, ac-
cording to Marcia Connell, 39, Orien-
tation chairman.
Second semester freshman women
will be able to apply this year for
the first time for assistant adviser
posts. Juniors and sophomores will
apply for senior adviser positions.
"Don't petition if you will have a lot
of other activities next fall," Miss
Connell said, "because Orientation
will demand all your time."
Miss Connell will interview all ap-
plicants next week at the League.
The two factors that will be most con-
sidered in awarding the positions are
personality and scholarship. The dates
of the Orientation Period will be
Tuesday, Sept. 20, through Friday,
Sept. 23.

Spring is truly here for W.A.A.ers have abandoned such barbaric weapons
as guns and foils for such warm weather protections as golf clubs, tennis
racquets, baseball bats and bows and arrows. The new W.A.A. board met
yesterday to start things going. Alberta Royal, Mary Richardson, Ruth
Hartmann, Martha Tillman and Helen Wolf were there giving advice
as old timers, and Harriet Sharkey, Virginia Allen, Jane Dunbar and
Florence Corkum were there drinking it all in. Norma Curtis had a little
difficulty keeping order but in the end all went well. Barbara Eppstein,
representing softball Dorothy Maul of tennis fame. Betty Hood, the horse-
woman, Archer Irene Sabo, Marjorie Tate of the golf Tates and outdoor
sporter Betty Lou Witters will all be present at a teaV-
today to which the athletic managers of all the
sororities, dormitories and league house zones are#
invited. They plan to get acquainted and discuss
present and future sport programs.
Some program may include swimming in their =
own pool (some day) if Michikanites will get out'
and pitch at the Michigras. It will be coming any
day now and the committee meets every Tuesday.
Paul Brickley, Hugh Rader, Betty Lyon, Dick Fox,
Irving Mathews, secretary Mary Johnson (who thus !
far has either lost the minutes or forgotten what, r. \
happened), Faith Watkins and Jean Smith are
among the talker-overs. Somehow in the shuffle the other day there was a
slip and the names of the decorations committee wer'e not announced. So
Minnie is proud to announce that Jaros Jedel, Virginia Mulholland, Martha
Tillman and Jane Mowers are members of the famed Michigras decorations
committee. And a lot of work is surely promised for them.

Mortarboard met yesterday-or at least the senior members of it did.
A few juniors imbued with a little self-importance thought they should
be there too but Betty Gatward, Barbara Bradfield, Hope Hartwig, Betsy
Baxter. and Florence McConkey politely informed them they were in the
wrong place. However their chance will be Friday and they are fervently
hoping a few seniors will wander in and find they are in the wrong place.
