Executives To Interview
Prospective Chairmen
Of Dinner Committees
The "New Order of Panhellenic"
will be the theme of the annual
Panhellenic Banquet which will be
held Monday, Nov. 13 in the League
The date of the banquet was an-
nounced at the first meeting of Pan-
hellenic AssociatIon which was held
at 4:15 p.m. yesterday at the League.
Delegates To Be Interviewed
Barbara Bassett, '40, president of
the organization announced that be-
cause a different method of appoint-
ing the committeemen in charge of
the banquet will be used this year,
the date is later than usual. Last
year the banquet was held on Oct. 31.
Panhellenic delegates who wish to
work on the banquet will petition for
committee chairmanships and be
interviewed by the Executive Coun-
cil of Panhellenic. The interview-
ing will be held from 3 to 5 p.m.
Thursday and Friday in the Under-
graduate office The committee
chairmanships were formerly select-
ed without interviews.
"Students Will Speak
Another innovation in the plans
for the banquet is the decision to
use student speakers, either under-
graduates or recent graduates who
are still in Ann Arbor. Four or five
speakers will be selected, and each
will discuss a certain phase of the
general theme. 0'
Mrs. George W. Lindsay, head of
the Committee on Interfraternity
Cooperation for National Panhellenic
Congress was the speaker at the ban-
quet last year.
The activities and scholarship cups
are annually awarded at the banquet
to the houses which are outstanding
in these lines.

League Needs
More Women
For Hostesses

New Series Of
Utilizing 'Stag'
To Be Started


Fifteen more women are needed to
act as hostesses at the first League
dance to be given under the new stag
system from 9 p m. to 1 a.m. today,
Beth O'Roke, chairman of the ball-
room, announced yesterday.
Helen Rhodes, '42, who is in charge
of getting women for the dance, has
asked all women interested to get in
touch with her as soon as possible,
at 2-2569. As the plan for single ad-
mission applies only to men, women
who wish to attend alone may do so
only if they are among the special.
The price for stag admission will
be 65 cents, and the admission for
couples will be the usual price of a
dollar per couple. The 50 hostesses
in the selected group will be distin-
guished by cellophane hairbows. The
hostess group will consist of different
women each week.
The advantages of the new plan
are that couples who do not want to
be cut in on may still come to the
League and dance undisturbed, while
men who have not dates for the
dance may also attend and meet
new women.
Earl Steven's orchestra will play
for dancing, and the score-guessing
contests which were inaugurated last{
week will be repeated. Each week
the scores of two games to be played
On the day following will be guessed,
and prizes will be free tickets to the
League ballroom. Among the hostess
will be various members of the League
