Appointment of Panhellenic officers
by the executive council instead of

was proposed as an amendment to
the Constitution of Panhellenic Asso-
ciation at-a meeting of the Council;

Under the present system the offi-

delegates from the 18 sororities on
campus. According to an amendment
made last fall announcement of the
officers so elected will be made at
the time of announcement of appoint-
ments to the League Council.
Candidates To Petition
The proposal, as made yesterday
by Barbara Bassett, '40, president
of Panhellenic, would provide for
petitioning and interviewing for the
offices with final appointment by
the outgoing executive council.
"The proposed amendment would
mean that the President of Panhell-
enic can work with the Judiciary
Council so that there will be rio con-
flict between Panhellenic and League
Council appointments," Miss Bassett
A greater representation of the
sororities in the offices would be a
second advantage, she added.
Change In Membership
Proposal of an amendment to
change the membership of Panhell-
enic Council was also made at the
meeting. The membership now con-
sists of president, rushing chairman
and assistant rushing chairman of
the respective houses. According to
the amendment the membership
would consist of president, assistant
rushing chairman and a specially
elected Panhellenic delegate.
"Specially elected Panhellenic dele-
gates could be chosen with the idea
of their being possible officers of the
association," Miss Bassett pointed
The amendments will be voted on
at the next regular meeting of the
Council which will be held Wednes-
day, March 27.
The present executive council of
Panhellenic is composed of Miss Bas-
sett, Jean Thompson, '40, treasurer;
Frances Kahrs, '40, secretary, and'
