were stationery, playing cards, and
candy. A noble willingness to sac-
rifice scarce articles was shown by
the frequent inclusion of gum, choco-
late bars, and cigarettes, of which one
person donated a whole carton! Oth-
er unusual items were a can of pine-
apple and one of salmon. Several
coeds sent Varga calendars, and
someone sent a pair of dice. One
careful coed noted on the outside
that her box contained "pin-up pic-
tures-just faces."
New Bureau
To Be Frmed
Following the suggestion of Dr.
Hance of the Speech Department,
Assembly Council is forming a Speak-
er's Bureau whose members will be
available for announcing coming
events to houses on campus.
To initiate the women for public
sneaking Dr. Hance will deliver a
short series of lectures, the first of
which will be held during the first
week of classes following Christmas
vacation. Coeds will be notified of
the time of the first lecture.
Will Announce Events
The women who will become mem-
bers of this bureau will give short
talks in the various league houses
and dormitories, explaining the dif-
ferent projects planned by Assembly'
Council. They will also be available
for Iced Cross, Women's War Council
and ,other organizations through the
courtesy of Assembly Council. The
first project to be announced by the
Speaker's Bureau is Recognition
Coeds are urged to join the Speak-
ers Bureau, preferably those major-
ing in speech. Each woman will give
three talks from three to five minutes
in length, probably during the din-
ner hour so that a greater number
of coeds will be reached.
Leave Names at League
Any independents who care to
join the bureau should leave a slip of
paper containing their name, address
and phone number in Florine Wil-
kins' box in the Undergraduate Of-
fice of the League anytime before 5
p. m., December 29.
