By DAN BEHRMANn
Somebody once criticized campus
men's organizations because they
lacked sufficient personnel to accom-
plish anything, but the women's
League Council is faced with the job
of keeping busy some one thousanda
assorted coeds during a Universityr
In order to handle this task-slight-a
ly simpler than cleaning an Augean
stable-the League Council includesr
17 committee heads drawn from theC
ranks of standing committees, ex-t
officio members, sundry councils, andr
every major women's organization on7
Margaret Sanford, '42, president ofr
the entire set-up, defined main pur-
poses of the Council as the "govern-I
ing of women's undergraduate func-r
tions and the development of lead-(
ers from the student body."
With the exception of two vice-1
presidents chosen by the council it-
self from its own membership, there
are no elected officers within thisr
body. Its close affiliation with ev-
ery woman on campus, however, dis-
counts most charges of "undemocrat-
Prevailing opinion both from stu-
dents and some University sources
agrees that the League Council isa
County Residents Receive
Washtenaw County's rural resi-
dents will be the aim of a new Ci-
vilian befense Volunteer Office en-a
rollment drive to be begun in April,
it was anounced yesterday.
Men and women living in outlying
areas will be sent questionnaires
based on their particular problems
and qualifications for CDVO work-
including such subjects as rooms for
disaster evacuees, neighborhood can-
ning groups, and cooperative trans-
The CDVO has also announced a
new program of training University
Building and Grounds men for work
as auxiliary fire and salvage wardens.
These men will receive instruction
from the city fire department.
Along the line of emergency prep-
aration, fifty new volunteers will be
taken for auxiliary fire department
training after Fire Chief Zahn and
CDVO officials decided on the eligi-
bility of present applicants. Rigid
physical qualifications are expected
to eliminate some enrollees.
Illustrating the intensiveness of
volunteer training, University tele-
phone supervisor Bert Peterson is
now on speaking terms with fire ex-
tinguishers, axes, battering rams,
pumping trucks, and war gases in-
cluding Lewisite, phosgene, chloro-
picrin and mustard gas.
a far more efficient governing body
than any of the so-called "repr-
sentative" groups still left on cam-
The League Council is also one of
the most independent campus gov-
erning bodies--since it contains all
necessary machinery for appoint-
ments, legislation, judiciary proceed-
ings and is responsible only to itself
on nearly all rulings.
According to Miss Sanford there
is very little need to work with other
organizations, and the council's con-
nection with the remaining campus
bodies does not go much further than
annual dinners with the Union staff.
One of the newest additions to a
many-tentacled staff is the Defense
Council in charge of such war activi-
ties as Red Cross courses, soldier cor-
respondence, and blood donor drives.
The Defense Council was also report-
ed to be one of the many channels
through which the rationed curfew
ruling was initiated.
Miss Sanford, however, told The
Daily yesterday the reduction in wo-
nien's hours came from within the
council and was passed unanimous-
ly. "Nearly everything we do is
passed unanimously," she declared.
No Trouble With Curfew
In discussing the war curfew
measure, Miss Sanford pointed out
yesterday that there has been no
trouble or flouting of regulations.
"Nothing has been heard from it
since The Daily stopped writing
stories," she asserted, "and what we
did hear at first was all from The
Miss Sanford was emphatic about
the amount of people who always
come up for appointments. Com-
paring this to some disinterest noted
in Mien's groups she declared that
"women seem to have more time and
besides they're all fiends for organi-
Merit System Used
Appointments are handled with a
somewhat implied system of alternat-
ing top jobs between sorority and
independent women. The "merit
system" is one of the bases for these
appointments, and was initiated this
year to replace the much-abused and
abusing "League points" scale of
The League Council on the whole,
can well stand as an example of stu-
dent government actually working.
Whatever charges of bureaucracy and
top-heavy administration levelled
against it are more than out-bal-
anced by the wide interest and work
put into its functioning.
Registrars TO Attend
Ira Smith and Robert Williams,
registrar and assistant registrar of
the University respectively, will at-
tend the 30th annual convention of
the American Association of College
Registrars, April 13 to 16 in Chicago.
The discussions at the convention
will center about speed-up programs,
enrollment, admissions, incomes, de-
gree requirements, personnel and co-
operation with the government and
the armed forces. One of the speak-
ers will be Brig.-Gen. Lewis Hershey,
directof of the Selective Service.

Civilian Volunteer Helpers
In University And City
To Receive Instructions
University building wardens and all
members of the University staff who
have volunteered for civilian defense
work have been asked to meet with
town and county volunteers in a lec-
ture program at 8 p.m. Tuesday in
The purpose of the meeting is to
instructptheprotective services and
auxiliaries of Washtenaw County in
their duties. Films will be shown and
lectures given on fire protection, the
handling of bombs and police work.
Especially intended for policemen,
firemen, air raid wardens, disaster
preparedness and relief workers, the
meeting is not open to the public.
H. H. Caswell, chairman of the
Washtenaw County Council of De-
fense, has announced that credit will
be given for attendance. He also
asked that if other defense classes
had previously been scheduled for the
same time, they be postponed.
A special plea was made to Uni-
versity staff members who are volun-
teers or regulars in the defense work
to attend the meeting by Edward C.

To Tire Gass
War economies in tires, gasoline
and maintenance costs in the use of M
trucks and automobiles are making h
significant savings for the University, r
Edward C. Pardon, superintendent of a
buildings and grounds, revealed yes-
He reported that six heavy trucks
of the 15 formerly used by the Uni- a
versity storehouse and buildings and W
grounds departments have been put c
in dead storage for the duration and u
will be used only in case of emergen- h
cy. Two of the trucks, he said, have T
been laid up since last October.' s
All University-owned passenger n
cars and station wagons have been w
pooled and must be requisitioned for a]
use by staff members. Such requi-
sitions are approved only when com-
mon carrier faculties cannot provide
the services needed.
Pardon pointed out that savings in
the use of trucks have been effected
by more efficient use of the trucks
still in use, trading transportation
services among the departments, hir-
ing of some types of hauling services,
cutting down the number of routineS
deliveries and the complete elimina-
tion of many special deliveries of
supplies to departments.
Added reductions and savings will
be made, Pardon said, as soon as
studies now under way in an attempt -
to determine actual needs are com- N
