Jn New Setup
Petitioning Begins Today
For Council Positions;
MondayTo Be Deadline
A general reorganization of the
League to take effect April 1 was de-
cided on by members of League Coun-
The change will resolve the three
vice-presidencies inrcharge of ball-
room, candy booths, and dancing
classes into committee heads, and
will raise the head of the orientation
committee to the office of vice-presi-
dency. In addition, it will create a
vice-presidency in charge of the tu-
torial system which has been evolving
during the past two years.
This change will radically effect
petitioning for League Council posi-
tions which will begin today and con-
tinue till 5 p.m. Monday.
Total effect of the new plan will
be to reduce the number of vice-
presidencies from three to two, an
to re-allocate offices :according to
The League itself dates back to the
1890's, but the structure which wo-
men on campus today know may be
said to have originated in 1934 when
League offices were taken from an
elective position and placed on the
This modification was made be-
cause the League itself had grown
to such proportions that it was im-
perative that its officers have some
training in the machinery involved
in its activities.
1934 was a year for many changes.
Not only did it mark the installation
of the merit system, but it was at
that time that orientation was taken
from the category of a purely uni-
versity function and placed in the
hands of students. The three vice-
presidencies were set up the same
Pockets are new; pockets are old.
Pockets are flat; pockets are puffy.
Pockets are small; pockets are large.
Pockets are low; pockets are high. In
fact, the only generalization that can
be made about pockets is that they
are springy and "in."
Wartime designers give us the flat,
wide, sleek pockets that hold lots and
have a smooth fitting appearance.
Placed low on the hips, wide apart,
these help effect the elongated waist-
line and rounded hipline. The femi-
nine trend however, insists on puffy,
little-girl dabs just below the waist.

WHO! .A telegram via Michigan Union tells us it was the FROSH
who frolicked Friday last though ably assisted by some of their WORTHY
seniors. Among the Forty-Threers we noticed Grace Proctor with John
Brown, Jane Graham with Walt Reed, Adele Bartholomew with Bill O'Dell,
Bobby Bartlow and Marilyn Mercer, Peg Brown and Bruce Corson, Nancy
Worrell with Johnny Fletcher, Mary Lou Reed with Ed Zahn, Madeleine
Smith with George Ross. Also joining in on the fun were Patricial Kunzman
with Howie Wallach and Virginia Crall with Don Hollingshead. Upperclass
participants who helped to further the festivities included Betty Cortlett
and Howdy Jones, Ginny Nathanson and Jeff Solomen and
Erma Bush and Jim Buckland..
WHAT? Need we repeat? The Union Opera, of course,
for truly "Four Out of Five" Michiganites seemed to be
there. Opening night the D. G.'s appeared EN MASSE in- ,
cluding Dotty Bloxsom, Betty Baldwin, Jeanette Hofman,
Mary McConkey, Katie Forberg, and Joan Outhwaite. That
same NIGHT we saw Bee Snoke with Art Dempsey, Dorothea
Ortmayer with Ted Novak and Jane Herrick with Bob Wood.'
Making their appearance Friday night were Sylvia Casper
and Milt Katz. A BIG attraction for the A. T. O. brethren
was the Saturday matinee. At this time their RANKS in-
cluded Bill Lapworth, Bob Gabriel, Paul Hoeper and Jerry artin. Mosher
iters Doris Merker. Betty Slee, Martha McCrory, Dorothy Foltz, Tenby
Larson and Jeanette Drake seemingly enjoyed it too, while we also noted
Millie Radford in attendance with Ian Ironside and Louis Ochetti with
Jean Foster. The extra Friday matinee was much APPROVED in the mean-
time by Gamma Phi sisters Mary Kay Dixon, Louise Keatley, Barbara Bac-
kus and Barbara Bassett.
WHY? The CO. or the HR. perhaps or maybe Tommy Dorsey's record-
ings that had, among others, Marge Moody and Howard Schaubel, Helen
Bitker and Marty Dworkis, Estelle Levin and Lou Londy, Merle Shulman and
Seymour Bergsman LEAPING over to the Michigan Wolverine's "Leap
Year's Leap" Sunday evening. Peggy McClurg, who sang "I'll Get Along"
over the P. A. was also seen along with Don Counihane. Daily Staff mem-
bers were also reported among the several STAG participants.
WHERE? The League where week-end DANCERS Ann Faden and Jim
Barrett, June McPherson and Burly Fitzharris were seen ebjoying the
music of Herb RITZ and his orchestra. Ob-
served with Union cards at this time were
Mydge Ford with Lloyd Gibbs and Dorothy
Brooks with Joad Ope.

and such. And there's always Hal Fry and Jo
