League Plans
Of Publication
Plans for a League paper, an en-
largement of the regular league bul-
letin, "What's Up," have been an-
nounced by Jeanne Crump, '42, editor.
Consisting of four pages, approxi-
mately magazine size, the paper will
be principally to cover League activi-
ties, acquainting freshmen with the
rules of activity, eligibility, and peti-E
toning before the confusion of last
minute applications. All activities ofj
tle League will be covered by the
monthly paper, with features, edi-
torials and drawings included.
The necessity for a paper announc-
ing petitioning and explaining the
nature of petitions to eligible women
has been felt in the League, and p%.:is
for a regular paper have been brought
up before. This is the first time,
however, that they have been organ-
ized for active application.
House rules, such as sign-out slips,
will be explained, and all other regu-
lations pertaining to women students,
with emphasis on new ones.
Dorothy Merki, '42, with Miss
Crump, will be concerned with the
paper in connection with the new
House Chairmanship committee. A
regular staff of reporters will be re-
sponsible for material.
All those interested in working on
the paper should come to a meeting
next week, time to be announced later.
