cular activities at Michigan is the
two-million dollar . Michigan League
which serves as the headquarters for
the Women's War Council, the
women's alumnae association and
other committees.
itEvery coed enrolling in the Univer-
sity automatically becomes a mem-
ber of the organization and is en-
titled to use any of its facilities dur-
ing her stay. Upon graduation, a
coed receives a life membership.
Created and preserved by many
classes of graduates and undergrad-

joyment of the campus, the chapel,'
ballroom, lounges, theatre, club
rooms, accomodations and cuisine

One of the main attractions of the
building is an informal garden, open
to men only when accompanied by a
League member. Surrounded by a
high stone wall, this spot, with its
trim shrubbery, flowers, and shade
trees, provides a cool meeting place
for coeds and their friends. A favor-

garden is also the scene of many
teas and receptions.
Chapel Scene of Weddings
Students and alumnae often re-
turn to Ann Arbor to be married in
the League chapel, dedicated to
Charlotte Blagden, president of the
League in 1925. Many of the honor
societies hold their initiations there.
On weekends, the main ballroom
becomes the scene of some of the
campus' main social events. Tea
dances, school dances, Assembly and
Panhellenic Balls and weekend dan-

here. Class project mass meetings
are usually held in the ballroom or
one of the smaller club rooms.

League, is the scene of the plays
produced by the Michigan Repertory
Players and Play Production. Mov-

held there also.
The campus surgical dressing unit

terviewing applicants for League

junction with the Office of the Dean

of the Judiciary Council.

diction over infractions of house

decisions are referred to the Office
of the Dean of Women where they
are recorded.

for recommendations of applicants
to the various positions in the
League and on the central com-
mittees of class projects and other
war activities.

recently-revised house rules are the

New Students Asked To Make
Dying Spirit a Roaring Flame
Women's Editor, Summer 1944
An observer in Ann Arbor might parody the remark of a famous football
coach of the Irish who, upon entering his team's dressing room during half-
time of a losing game, cut his pep talk to one sentence.- "Pardon me," he
said, "I thought this was the Notre Dame dressing room."
During the last three semesters we might well have said, "Pardon
us, but we thought this was the University of Michigan campus."
If we could stay around for another semester or so, we might be
eating these words, served up by the new freshman class. OR we might
For the entering freshman will find himself in the midst of a genuine
campus revival ... . revival of the spirit which will push our war activities
down the home stretch, renew the gay old times at week-end dances and
parties, pack the stadium and the field house, and revive the fun and college
spirit a few of us can't help but remember.
We'd like to be throwing you a "flaming torch," but we aren't-it's only
a match. We're just beginning to pull out of a prolonged slump during
which the University has been an academic skeleton with only a faint sem-
blance of life. Wartime depletion of the male population is our best excuse,
but is it quality or quantity we need? The decrease in our numbers is a poor
excuse for a decrease in effort.
We only "live" once ... in college. College life is unique. You are
a citizen of a limited and exclusive world, and living ii this world is
fun .. .if you care to take it that way. And make It that wavy.
The directions are simple.
1. Go to the forthcoming rally campus leaders will hold. Pick out your
spot in campus activities and see what you can make of it.
2. By being cynical you aren't being sophisticated. You're only making
a pest of yourself. Criticize, but criticize constructively.
The campus is breathing again, and you're the doctor. Welcome, Doel
for all late . campus functions not

listed above must be obtained from
the Office of the Dean of Women.
Latenesses: Any lateness of 30
minutes or over makes it necessary
for the offender to appear before the
Judiciary Council.
Social Probation: Any woman who
violates the house rules and is
brought before the Judiciary Com-
mittee may be placed on social pro-
bation,, during which time her hours
will be restricted.
The Jap radio reported the other
day that a double ration of "Saki"-
a Jap counterpart to alcohol-will be
issued to the members of the Jap
fleet for their "overwhelminghdefeat
inflicted on the American fleet."
There has been a hitch reported in
the plan. No Saki.

"Be yourself" is the order of the

Thick, streaked foundations are
banned by the, smartest coeds who

A good brand of carefully selected
face powder, cream rouge, non-greasy
lipstick and mascara (applied with
a light touch) are the requirements
for a degree in grooming.
Clean, shining hair, representative
of frequent shampoos and brushings,
is the most popular "crowning glory."
Feather cuts have replaced the long
straight hair-dos. The exotic, the
