League Plans
Debate Teams
League Houses, Sororities,
Do r m s, Independents
Are To Compete4
A plan for establishing women's
intramural debate teams, to be spon-
sored by the League, was announced
recently by Hope Hartwig, '38, presi-I
dent of the League.
"The aim of this plan is to give thei
women on campus who are interested
in debating the opportunity to do so,"
Miss Hartwig said, "becaus.,e there are
only four positions open to them on
the Varsity Debate Team and there
are certainly more women than that
who have an interest in debating."
Each House To Be Given Team
The plan is that each sorority have
one two-women team; Mosher-Jor-
dan Halls, four; Martha Cook Build -
ing, one; Betsy Barbour House, one;
Helen Newberry Residence, one; Al-
umnae House, one; Adelia Cheever-
House, one; Ann Arbor Independents,
one and four from the League House;
President group.
'This will make a total of 32 teams,
64 women. There will be four roundsI
of debates, run as an elimination con- I
test. 16 debates are to constitute
the first round, eight for the second,
four for the third and two for the
Different Subjects To Be Debaied
A different current subject will b,
decided upon for each round by the,
committee in charge. Barbara Pater-
3on, '39, and Helen Jean Dean, '3g
will be the co-chairmen. The other
committee members are to be an-
nounced later.

Recitation Rights Denied
Madelon Stockton Who
Was Here In 1870
A double row of jeering men, lined
up on either side of the diagonal,
watched Madelon Stockton, of Kala-
mazoo, the first woman student to at-
tend the University, as she walked
across the campus for the first time
in February, 1870.
Miss Stockton stood her ground
alone that first semester, and the next
year there were five more of the
weaker sex to share her honor of being
the first woman to attend any state
university in the United States.
First Women Had A Hard Time
These first women had a hard time
of it. The men were definitely op-}
posed to their coming. When the idea
of admitting them had been first pre-
sented 12 years earlier, the Board of
Regents rejected it saying that "tot
admit ladies to the University would'
be . . . destructive to its character and
influence and ruinous to the ladies
who might avail themselves of it."
The men at first refused to ac-
knowledge the fa'ct that the women
wvere actually treading the sacred pre-
cincts of the University. And since,
in their minds, there were no women
present, it was not necessary to make
room for them on such places as side-
walks. Professors would not let them
recite. One -man in particular ad-
dressed his class as "gentlemen" and
called the women Mr. So and So. ?
