Assembly Announces Board's Reorganization

In order to meet the demands for1
increasing participation of women in
war activities and in student affairs,
Assembly Association, the organiza-
tion of independent women, has re-
organized its central board to include
the five positions of president; two
vice-presidents, one in charge of dor-
mitories and the other one in charge
of league houses; publicity chairman,
and a secretairv-treasurer.
Petitioning for these positions
will begin today and continue
through Wednesday. Petitions may
be secured in Miss Ethel McCor-
mick's office at the League. Inter-
viewing will take place from 3 p.m.
to 5:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday
and from 9 a.m. to noon Saturd;.y,
April 29. Applicants must sign up
for their interviews when they turn
in their petitions.
"This new plan has been adopted
so that both the dormitories and the
league houses will be separate entities
within the larger Assembly Associa-
tion," explained Doris Barr, president
of Assembly.
Vice-President's Duties

presidents of every dormitory and
auxiliary dormitory. It will be herI
duty to supervise and be responsible
for not only the war activities but for
everything concerning independent
women living in dormitories. She will
conduct regular meetings with her!
beard and make it an efficiently run-
ning organization.
The vice-president in charge of
league houses will also have a board
of her own, consisting of a represen-
tative from each zone. Her main job
will be to organize the league houses
as a unit within themselves. It has
also been suggested that this person
draw up a constitution for league
houses. defining the responsibilities
of the houses as individuals and as
part of the larger unit of Assembly.
Esprit de Corps
"Both of these boards will work
together to achieve 'esprit de corps,'
a feeling of unity within themselves.
Each of the groups will have some
similar problems but most of the
problems will be different," Miss Barr
The publicity chairman is to be
concerned with a system of contact
with independent women; this she
may do through The Daily and
through the present system of a Cal-
endar, of Events. The Calendar of
Events will contain a list of all the
coming events so that all the women
will know exactly what activities are
taking place.
The secretary-treasurer will be ex-
pected to keep accurate records of
the business carried on in the meet-

ing of the dormitory board, the league
house board and any joint meetings
of the two. She will also be con-
cerned with any financial business of
Assembly Association.
The president must be a senior by
next year; but beyond that there are
no stipulations as to class. However,
the vice-president in charge of league
houses should either be living in a
league house now or have lived in one
before so that she will be acquainted
with the league house situation.

WAVE CHEERLEADERS are shown leading a group of spectator sailors
in a Navy cheer as their WAVE teammates rest during a strenuous
game of basketball. WAVES take part in sports frequently for personal
recreation as well as for physical training.

Croup's Pride ,
Above Suspicion
"Do the women in the WAVES
behave themselves?" is the question
most frequently asked of Lt. -Com.
Mary Josephine Shelly, of the Bureau
of Naval Personnel.
"The answer--truthfully-is that
they certainly do," declared Lt.-Com..
Shelly. "The reason is not discipline
so much as group pride, with its
internal public opinion. The women
do not respect any member who
might step over the bounds, and each
woman is anxious to keep the respect
of the group.
"Group pride is very evident," Lt.-
Com. Shelly observed. "The women
build up definite traditions and pride
in the indoctrination and specialist
schools they attend. And it carries on
into their work. They have pride in.
the naval station to which they are
attached and in the particular de-
partment of their work. And all the
WAVES who work on the ships,
equipment and control towers for one
squadron think their squadron is far
better than all others."

activities of these two groups and will
