T'HERE is a new rule in the Dean of
Women's office this year whichI
has been causing an unnecessary
amount of inconvenience both to the
deans and to the students them-
selves. The rule relates to late per-
mission, and provides that any girl
desiring to be out of her house after
the regular closing hours must secureI
permission from the deans' office
Formerly this permission could be
granted by housemothers, which eli-
minated much running back and
forth and made the whole thing
infinitely simpler. According to the
new rule, however, even if a girl has
the most legitimate of reasons: a
late class or lab, work on one of the
publications, participation in one of
the campus dramatic productions, or
baby-sitting, she must trudge over
to the Barbour Gym, wait a consider-
able length of time before anyone can
see her, carry on a good deal of con-
versation with various intermediar-
ies-all for the simple purpose of
answering perfectly routine questions
to aid the perfectly routine filling-out
of a permission slip.

is to sit in the station or any other
place that they can find until the
house opens in the morning.
WHEN this edict was issued it was
accompanied by a statement ex-
plaining that it was because travel
was so uncertain and so difficult that
the rule had been established. S,3me-
how Lhis doesn't seem at all sensible.
One would think that the more prob-,
ability there was that unforeseeni
travelling complications arise, the
more flexible the rules regarding th
admittance to residence houses upon
return from out-of-town should be.
It is enough of an indignity to
require upperclassmen to keep
hours in the first place, let alone to
demaind that they abide by these
wholly unnecessary rules which are
extravagant with time, energy. and
patience. Why can't the deans' of-
fice treat its charges and house-
mothers with the respect which
one would think college upper-
classmen and accredited hmur:e-
mothers worthy of commanding?
No matter when I receive The
Daily it is always welcome. I left
the University in June of 1943 one
semester short of an engineering de-
gree and still like to think of myself
as part of the student body. I am
very interested in reading your edi-
torial and sports pages, and am glad
to see that the people on The Daily
now are just as wide awake as at the
time I was in school. Of course I
don't fully agree with all the opin-
ions expressed, but I heartily approve
of the way the topics are chosen and
From reading The Daily I can see
that it and everyone on campus is
doing a wonderful job in keeping the

MANY of us wonder why all this
administrative red tape is ne-
cessary. It is highly insulting to a
girl's integrity to have it demanded
that she produce a note from her
professor, from the editor of The
Daily, or from the head of the Child
Care Committee of the League stat-
ing when and how long and for what
purpose it will be necessary for her to
be out after hours. And it is even
more insulting to the integrity of
accredited housemothers to have the
power to grant late permission taken
out of their hands.
If a provision were made in the
rule that girls living in University
residence halls may receive late
permission from their housemoth-
ers, who are in some degree repre-
sentatives of the deans' office it-
self and hence should be trust-
worthy enough to accept this re-
sponsibility, it would relieve the
deans' office of the trouble of deal-
ing with such large numbers of
these purely routine requests,
thereby permitting it to devote its
efforts to the more important mat-
ters that can be handled in no
other way than through the of-
fice; and in addition it would be a
tremendous saying of valuable time
and effort for the girls.
Also related to the matter of late
permission is another condition
strongly in need of correction. Fol-
lowing the policy which aroused such
severe censure at Michigan State,
last year, the deans' office Las de-
clared that girls returning to Ann
Arbor on late trains after holidays or,
week-ends are subject to the same
rules which would apply if it were
an ordinary lateness. This means
making up five minutes for every late
minute if the lateness amounts to
less than half an hour; facing Judi-
ciary Council if it was more than
that time. In these days of crowded,
uncertain travelling conditions girls
are expected to plan their trips so
that nothing short of a train wreci
could prevent their being back in
Ann Arbor in plenty of time for them
to be in their houses before closing
hours. It makes no difference whe-
ther this necessitates a girl's coming
back an entire day earlier than ne-
cessary; it makes no difference if
the train was a couple of hours late.
It is the girl's business to See t u

say.- the deans' office.
What does this mean for girls
who come from any distance? Un-
less it is possible for them to take
a train which arrives early en-
ough so that even a delayed
schedule could make no difference,
they are faced with the possibility
and'often the certainty of coming
into Ann Arbor after their houses
are closed. In such a case they
have two alternatives. One is to
ring the doorbell, sign in late, go
before Judiciary, and take the us-
ual penalty of social pro; the other
