A "Limitations of Offices" bill and
changs in the running of the merit
system of the League have been
passed by the League Council, Bar-
bara Dittman, '41, chairman of the
Merit System Committee announced
Women's activity positions, Miss
Dittman explained, have been classi-
fied under four headings. A, B, C and
D, according to the amount of work
involved in the holding of the posi-
Posiions Are Clastsified
"A" posiions for example include
memberships on the League Council,
women's editorships on the student
publications, memberships on Judici-
ary Council, and the general chair-
man of JGP. "B" positions include
junior positions on the publications,
the general chairmen of Sophomore
Cabaret and Freshman Project and
the central committee members of
JGP. "C" positions include sopho-
more positions on the publications,
central committee members of Fresh-
man Project and Sophomore Cabar-
et and assistant chairmen of League
committees. "D" positions include
all members of League committees
and honorary groups.
Positions may be held, Miss Ditt-
man said, in the following combina-
tions: A and C; 2 B's and 2 C's or
4 C's. D positions are unlimited and
may be held in combination with posi-
tions in any of the other three groups.
Changes To Start Immediately
The new system will go into ef-
fect immediately-i.e. as new position
appointments are made through the
League. Women holding their quota
of positions at present will be given
their choice of dropping one of their
offices or forfeiting their opportun-
ity to take over a new position.

Proud, Dan McIntyre, Edward Coup-
er and Jack Meadows. They will f
mak an entrance, before the riding
events, in an old fashioned carriage
and team. Free grandstands seat-
ing 500 will be available.

date dreams

Changes in the merit system will
supplement this bill in an effort to
give women as much credit as is due
them for their hours of work and
ability and also to provide opportuni-
ties for as many women as desire to
wor in the League to do so. Under
the new system one League point will
be awarded for five hours service in-
stead of for ten hours service as was
formerly the case. .

Panhellenic To Begin
Registration Today
Informal rushing- registration will
be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. today
and tomorrow in the Kalamazoo
Room of the League for all women
who are interested in being rushed.
No fee is required for informal
rushing as was for formal rushing
earlier this season, Annabel Van Win-
kle, '41, president of Panhellenic, an-
nounced. All who wish to be rushed
must register.
It was incorrectly announced Sat-
urday that registration would take
place in the cave of the League in-
stead of the Kalamazoo Room.
