Is Discussed Herel
A papyrus fragment from a Greek
manual was discussed by Dr. Elinor
M. Husselman, curator of manu-
scripts and papyri in the University
ticipate. There was no such build-
ing as the League in which they might
meet for class projects or which they
could use as a community club house.
To remedy this situation, nine sen-
ior independent women founded Sen-
ior Society to promote good fellow-
ship and sociability among University
wcmen. They had no intentions, ap-
parently, of pursuing any set service
program, but their efforts to organize
non-affiliated women were so suc-
cessful that, in 1909, a member of the
society, Frieda Kleinstuck. now Mrs.
Carl Blankenburg, became president
of the League.
Miss Hartwig described the year in
which she was a member of Senior
Society, 1929, as a transitional period.-
The group was tending toward some-
thing of a service program while re-
taining the original social aspect of
the organization, she said. The or-E
ganization also sold the collars to be
worn with senior caps and gowns, a
project which has lasted up to the!
