Student Tutors'
Mass Meeting
Will Be Today
Women with qualifying records of
A and B in subjects for which they
desire to register as tutors will gather
for a mass meeting of tutors at 4 p.m.
in the League today.
It is desirous that all tutors be
registered before six weeks marks
are issued to freshmen, as there will
be many requests for assistance at
that time, Elizabeth Bailie, '41, an-
nounced. In order for the most bene-
fit to result from tutoring an early
start with regularly spaced ,lessons
is advisable.
All subjects may be registered in
which a tutor is qualified, but the
first calls will probably be in fresh-
man subjects. An assessment of 25
cents an hour on every girl tutored
is .paid directly to her tutor as com-
pensation for the lessons,
Anyone desiring to tutor, but un-
able to attend today's meeting, may
register by calling Miss Bailie, or
leaving her name and qualifications
with the tutorial committee in the
undergraduate offices of the League.

Barbour Qymnasium Will Have

Indoor Season



For the first time in the history of
the Tniversity, women are to shoot
their arrows .the year round, and we
don't mean into the hearts of male
targets, for that has been going on
forever . . . but into the targets on
the practice range which 'will be set
up in Barbour' Gymnasium for the
indoor seasons.
In the past, the archery club has
been able to function actively only in
the fall and spring outdoor seasons
because of lack of a practice range
which would enable them to meet
regularly during the indoor seasons.
Team To Practice
But with the purchase of the back-
drop for the targets, plans for set-
ting the range up, and the wintei'
practice which this' means, Eleanor
Gray, '43, head of the archery club,
is confident that Michigan will be
able to build up a competent team, for
the Intercollegiate Telegraphic Meet
which will be held in the spring.
In the meet last year, Michigan
placed 50th in a group of 140 contend-
ers, while first' place went to the
University of Connecticut, In the
district, the team placed 7th in a
group of 39 entrants, with the team's
old rival, Michigan State, placing
Contestants Placed
Eight contestants entered for Mich-
igan, five of whom placed in the
meet. Nancy Bercaw, '43, placed first
with an A rating, while Miss Gray
was second with a B rating. Arleen
Helliesen, '43, Betty Lyman, '42, and
Joanne Woodward, '43, were in third
place with ratings of C. Each par-
ticipant received a certificate indicat-
ing her standing in the meet.
Now entering its 20th year, the club
meets at 4:20 p.m. every Thursday.
Tournaments, picnics and teas com-

prise a part of the schedule for the!
year. This year's plans will include
an all campus tournament to be held
the week of Nov. 3, and tentative
arrangements for a picnic to close
the official outdoor season in Novem-
Freshman women, who fill the
archery classes for their physical edu-
cation credit, are eligible for the
archery club, and new talent is ex-
pected to be uncovered soon through
such groups.
Interviewing To End
Interviewing for Assembly Banquet
positions will end at 5 p.m. today,

ident of the organization. Women
who have not yet been interviewed
