Assembly, Panhellenic Will Offer VariedPrograms Durin

Will Sponsor
League Booth
Group For Disseminating
ASsse ily information
Planned For Freshmen
A-embly's information booth will
be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every
day from today through Saturday in
the League to answer any and all
questions that freshmen and trans-
fers may have concerning its oper-
ation and activities.
This year Assembly's information
booth is under the supervision of the
Ann Arbor Independents, which is
one of the three independent groups
on campus. Patricia Walpole, '41,
president of Assembly will be on hand
to coordinate all activities.
Assembly's Purpose Defined
Miss Walpole, summing up the pur-
pose of Assembly, stated that "the
Assembly Association is the organiz-
ation of non-affiliated women formed
to stimulate the interest of these
women in social and scholastic activ-
ities on the campus, and to promote
the unification of sorority and non-
affiliat d women."
Assembly is made of the executive
board, the dormitory group, the Ann
Arbor Independent group, the League
House group and Beta Kappa Rho.
The executive board includes the
four officers of Assembly, which are
elected each spring, and one delegate
from each of the eight dormitories,
elected last fall, the president and
secretary-treasurer of the Ann Arbor
Independents, the League Houses and
Beta Kappa Rho. This board meets
weekly and assembles all of the in-
formation which should reach the
independent women on campus, and
relays it back to their respective
groups. Anyone petitioning for a job
in Assembly must be interviewed by
this board.
Officers Are Listed
Officers for Assembly this year in-
clude Miss Walpole, as president,
Betty Lyman, '41, vice-president, and
Betty Hall, '41, secretary. For every

organization. Climaxing the Fortnight
is the Assembly Banquet.

Candy Sales
Help Provide
Candy and scholarships-an un-
usual combination but one made
practical in the set-up of the League
candy booth committee. This com-
mittee which operates candy booths
in University Hall, Mosher-Jordan
Halls, Helen Newberry Residence and
this year for the first time in the
newly opened Stockwell Hall, turns
all profits into the League scholar-
ship fund. ,
Under the chairmanship of Beth
Caster, '41, the organization of the
committee will begin with a mass
meeting of all women interested in
giving service. This year a new ex-
ecutive committee will be formed
consisting of the heads of each of the
booths and the general chairman.
This committee will meet once a
month to discuss sales, advertising,
publicity, and equipment.
New means of advertising the
work of the committee will also be
introduced this year by use of posters
on all dormitory bulletin boards and
posters around campus. Some of
these will explain the need for stu-
dent and faculty patronage as the
money goes for scholarships. Fur-
ther an extensive campaign will be
carried out in the residence halls to
acquaint women with the supplies of
the booths and to help secure their
Women in charge of the individual
booths this year are: Eva Etkin,
Mosher-Jordan; Nancy Wolfe, Helen
Newberry and Beth Caster, Univers-
ity Hall. The Stockwell Hall booth
chairman will be named at a later

Campus Projects Raise Money
For Women's Swimming Pool

A swimming pool 12 yards in
length and only five and one-half
feet deep seems rather inadequate
i4 a school where most facilities
for sports are abundant, and yet, if
it were not for the cooperation of
the Michigan Union Board, that is
just the sort of pool the women of
the University would have to use.
In 1897 this undersized, tiled pool
was constructed in Barbour Gym-
nasium. Today it is used only when
the large pool in the Union, where
the women's physical education class-
es in swimming are held, is over-
Organizations Aid Project
For a number of year various cam-
pus organizations have been cooper-
ating with WAA in its projects to
raise money for a new pool. The
University of Michigan Alumni Asso-
ciation has already contributed;
$5,000 to the fund and hopes to be
able to contribute more. Other
groups which have been actively aid-
ing the women in their campaign to
raise money for a new pool are the
Michigan League, the Michigan Un-
ion, the Men's Dormitory Committee,
the Varsity Swimning team, J-Hop
committees and Frosh Frolic com-
Authorized plans have been drawn
up in the Office of the University
Plant Extension for a new and ade-
quate swimming pool. There awaits
now only the completion of the col-
lection of the necessary funds before
the pool is actually built.
To Sponsor New Effort
In former years, many projects
have been sponsored in an effort to
raise this money, but there is still
a great deal to be done before theI

dream of a swimming pool will be-
come a reality. Last year WAA
brought Jan Savitt to the campus
to give a "swing concert." Many
women also sold balloons at the Yale-
Michigan game.
This year, it is expected, WAA
will continue its efforts to raise
money, and it is hoped that all cam-
pus women will assist them in every

SProject Plants
Fall Program
The Children's Theatre, one of the
few Civic projects undertaken by the
League, and panacea for would-be
play producers and the stage-struck
alike will raise the curtain on the
first of its play series with the pro-
duction of a fairy tale play.
As in former years this theatre
group will present four plays: the
fairy tale adaptation, an original,
and a dance pantomine in conjunc-
tion with the University Dance Club.
The technical parts of the produc-
tions will be handled by the students
on the Theatre Arts committee while
the casts of the plays will be made
up mainly of town children.
The hope of the committee this
year, Chairman Jane Pinkerton, '41,
has announced, is to bring the Chil-
dren's Theatre into a more promi-
nent place among campus entertain-
ment, thereby to increase the patron-
age of the plays which heretofore has
been largely restricted to the children
and their parents. "The University
boasts of one of the finest Child-
ren's Theatre projects in the count-
ry," Miss Pinkerton stated, "and we
have received the full cooperation of
the Ann Arbor schools. It has made
great progress in the last few years-
a fact which we hope will become a
Class Times Established
University regulations start classes
officially at seven minutes after each
hour. Tradition permits teachers to
be eight minutes late, and at 15 min-
utes after the hour students. leave
class rooms. But they must wait
through the entire hour set aside
for the class if the professor is the
head of a department, the tradition

Offered ,By
Not meaning tobe trite by bringing
up the many freshman "don'ts", we
do sympathize with the Class of 1944,
and so to them we dedicate this
spilled ink.
Instead of the incessant reminders
of what not to do and what definite-
ly will prohibit them from becoming
the glamour gals that they are cer-
tain to turn into if they follow the
carefully turned outtfreshman in-
structions on what to avoid, here are
a few "do's".
Dawdle Over Cokes
Please Do dawdle over a coke and
learn how to make it last until class
begins. It's painful to gulp it down
the first two minutes and then to be
forced to poke the ice at the bottom
of the glass for the next 28 minutes.
Please Do wear comfortable shoes
on campus. It's disconcerting to the
Prof to have the leg thus exposed
when the shoes are freed from the
foot in the middle of his lecture.
Laugh At Campus Jokes
Please Do laugh at the campus
jokes. We admit their antiquity, etc.,
but we enjoy them and so must you.

And please Do stare at the cam-
pus celebrities. What's the fun of
being a BWOd or BMOC without
)eople noticing you. So, freshmen,
ive them their fun, for someday,
you, too, may attain their heights.
Then, too, please Do be brave
enough to show your individuality
by daring to refuse a coke date to
keep your 10 o'clock class. Experi-
,nce has shown that Mater and Pa-
ter, while not insistent on Phi Bete,
do appreciate some showing of that
I. Q. which the local high school
claimed you possess.
