All House Presidents To Meet
At5on Wednesday in Rackham

Freshmen Coeds
Seen Sparsely

Representative Group To Take
New Status in Student Affairs
The house presidents of all of the
dormitories, sororities and league
houses on campus will meet at 5 p.m.
Wednesday in the Rackham Amphi-
theatre, Ann MacMillan, '44, chair-
man of Judiciary Committee, an--
nounced yesterday.
"We want the house presidents'
meetings to become an open forum
where the ideas and problems under
discussion by the students in their
respective houses can be aired and a
decision reached," Miss MacMillan
stated.
After the house presidents have
voted on a measure, their decision
would be carried out by the Women's
War Council. In this way the plans
made would be in accordance with
student opinion as revealed in the
house presidents' meetings.
All house presidents are urgently
requested -to attend the meetings,
Miss MacMillan added. Only in this
way can the body regain its status as
a living, breathing, influential organ-
ization as it has been when the plan
was successfully in effect in former
years. If the full cooperation of the
house presidents is received, meet-
ings will be held more often than

League Library
Is Quiet Haven
For AllWomen
By MARY ANNE OLSON
Offering a pleasant, comfortable
atmosphere for long, quiet hours of
uninterrupted study or for "brows-
ing," the League library is open from
12:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. throughout
the year.
Strictly a women's retreat, the li-
brary, located on the. third floor of
the League, is open to all women stu-
dents, faculty wives and alumnae of
the University. Its support has come
entirely from the undergraduate wo-
men, with gifts and revenue from cir-
culation extending the collection year
by year.
2,400 Books and Periodicals
The library has been operating
continuously since 1935, and at pre-
sent has more than 2400 of the lat-
est popular books, as well as many
current periodicals. Constantly sup-
plementing the collection are new
books donated by individuals or
groups and books purchased with mo-
ney collected in fines.
An extensive collection of modern
plays, one of the most valuable assets
of the library, is kept on the Alice C.'
Lloyd shelf. The collection has been
built up by gifts from Miss Lloyd and
by presents from Senior Society, the
senior honorary society for indepen-
dent women.
Marriage Relations
Mortarboard Society, all-campus
senior honorary society for women,
has built up a complete group of
books on marriage relations. In addi-
tion to these two collections, the li-
brary's collection centers mainly
around fiction, drama, poetry, popu-
lar biography and popular non-fic-

On

'47 Corps

"Only 20 women worked on the '47
Corps last week," Marcia Sharpe,
'44, chairman of the project, an-
nounced yesterday.
"Freshman women should realize
that it is their responsibility to sup-
port their class project. Sophomore
women work at the hospital, Juniors
sell war stamps and bonds, Seniors
sponsor the surgical dressings unit,
and Freshmen are given the job of
keeping the campus clean," Miss
Sharpe said. "Twenty women out of
800 is certainly not a record for
freshmen to be proud of.""0
'47 Corps headquarters is in the
sub-station in back of Waterman
Gymnasium. The station is unlocked
during the afternoons and the key
may be obtained in the mornings
from Miss Ethel MacCormick's office
in the League. Workers are assigned
to various campus posts and are
given jobs such as raking leaves and
picking up papers.
Rakes and other equipment are
kept at the sub-station. Workers are
advised to wear warm clothing, jeans
or slacks, and warm jackets. Heavy
gloves or mittens are recommended.
"Representatives from each fresh-
man residence will meet at 5 p.m.
Tuesday in the League," Miss Sharpe
announced. "Plans for recruiting
more girls will be discussed and it is
hoped that we can accomplish much
before cold weather makes it impos-
sible to work."
tion. There are very few text books
on the shelves.
The periodical subscriptions that
are maintained by the library are the
Atlantic Monthly, Good Housekeep-
ing, Mademoiselle, New Yorker,
Reader's Digest, Saturday Review of
Literature, Time, Vogue and The Dai-
ly.
The books in the library may be
taken out by the students. The latest
acquisitions have been set aside for
rental purposes 4t a rate of three
cents a day with no minimum, charge.
The rest, with the exception of the
reference books, may be taken out
for a two week period.

New Ski Club
Is Org n1zed
WAB Will Be Scene of Initial
Meeting of Latest WAA Group
Because of the demands of coeds
for ski instruction, WAA has organ-
ized a Ski Club which will hold its in-
itial meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the
small lounge of the WAB.
Louise Forbush, '45, Awards Chair-
man of WAA and manager of the new
club, will give further information a-
bout meetings and instruction at this
time.
While no experience is needed for a
woman to join this club, women who
have done some skiing before are wel-
come. It is not necessary to own skiis
or ski poles, because all equipment
can be rented for a small sum at the
WAB. Actual skiing will be done in
the Arboretum as soon as there is
enough snow on the ground.
Coeds Are Needed
In Dressings Unit
To Meet Big Quota
All coeds are urged to participate
during at least an hour a week in the
work of the surgical dressings unit,
according to Jean Whittemore, '44,
general chairman.
There has been an emergency call
from the Red Cross for Washtenaw
County to double its quota of dress-
ings, Miss Whittemore stated. The
reason for the increased quota is
probably the heavy fighting on all
fronts and the need of building up an
emergency reserve against the very
possible opening of new battle areas.
More instructors are needed at the
unit, which is open from 1 p.m. to 5
p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday in *the game room of the
League. Any woman can become an
instructor upon the completion of six
hours of work in the unit and the
passing of a Red Cross test.
Women who cannot make dressings
during afternoon hours may work
from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednes-
day and Thursday evenings at the
Rackham Building. This station is
filling an emergency quota of cotton
pads for the Army which must be
completed by Jan. 1.

At opjiotue 1 ld at
3:30 p.m. Friday in Rackham Audi-
torium to advise all rushees on the
problems that will confront them
during the rushing period, Mary June
Hastreiter, '44, president of Panhel-
lenic, stressed the importance of be-
ing careful in their choice of sorority.
This year an honor system has
been put into effect between sorority
and non-sorority women to take the
place of the former silence period
which extended throughout the rush-
ing season between sorority and in-
dependent women. All sorority wo-
men have been put on their honor
not to enter any dormitory or league
house where freshmen and indepen-
dent women are living, not to make
any pre-arranged dates with the in-
tention of rushing, nor discuss sor-
ority in their meetings with non-
sorority women.
Should Report Violators
Freshmen and upperclass indepen-
dent women were requested to watch
out for any violations of the honor
system and to lower their respect and
consideration for any organization
which attempts to influence them for
or against any other organization or
the same organization. In this way,
there is a double check against any
illegal rushing on the part of any
sorority.
Sue Wood, '44, rushing chairman
of Panhellenic, read through all the
rushing rules as set down in the Pan-
hellenic rushing bulletin making a
few essential corrections in order to
clarify all details to the rushees.
It is necessary for any upperclass
woman who goes out for rushing to
have at least fifteen hours of ad-
vanced credit and a "C" average. No
woman student who has less than the
required two point average is entitled
to attend any rushing function.
Only Five Parties
"No rushee may attend more than
five parties at any one house." In-
cluded in these five parties are the
open house and the final desserts.
After the open house, a rushee may
attend only one party per house for
the following two week-ends.
Postcards will be mailed to all in-
vited rushees Monday evenings fol-
lowing the week-end functions for
the second and third parties and for
the fourth and fifth parties. Every
rushee must answer her invitation in

one way or another by Wednesday
evening for the second and third par-
ties and may not break a date once it
has been accepted. For the fourth'
and fifth week-end parties, rushees
must accept or refuse their invita-
tions by Wednesday evening but may
receive invitations via the telephone
following that deadline. However, no
rushee may break a phone call invi-
tation after Thursday evening.
Before any woman may accept a
bid to any house, she must have been
at that particular house at least two
times before the final dessert party.
Each rushee may attend three parties
per week-end.
Pledging of upperclassmen will
take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16

aftier a siltqIce piod extciiduig from
the time when the preference slips
have been turned in and the time
when pledging will occur. Freshmen
may not be pledged until Sunday,
March 12, after they have made the
required sorority grades.
The sororities have been divided
into two districts for the open house
teas and all rushees with the last
names from M through Z will visit
District I today and those with last
names from A through L will visit
houses in District II. The opening
teas are scheduled from 2:30 to 7:30
p.m. and each rushee is required to
visit every house in her respective
district and is permitted to remain
>nly 20 minutes at each house.
