THISIS NOVEMBER, the month of opportunity. My horoscope (twenty-
five cents at all drug stores and cosmetic counters) says so. It said nice
things about all the other months, too.
There are many opportunities all over campus awaiting the University
coed. The Michigan woman is launching an all-out drive before the Michi-
gan man gets his guard up, with open houses gaping threateningly in every
PERHAPS THE BIGGEST opportunity that November brings the Mich-
igan woman is that of enriching her college experience, gaining prac-
tical experience in cooperation and. leadership and broadening her view-
point, unquote, by getting into activities.
The League is having petitioning and interviewing for all sorts of
things. Those who work at the League file things and talk to people on
the telephone. If they are really good at it, they get Big League positions.
People with big League positions talk to people on the telephone and know
everybody that works at the League.
WORKING ON THE DAILYxis fun too. Those who work on the Daily miss
dinner once a week working night desk and talk to people on the
telephone. Those who show exceptional ability get to be editors. Editors
get paid, and besides, they know everybody that works on The Daily.
WAA members gets lots of exercise and know everybody on WAA. Those
work on the 'Ensian pile up lots of activity hours for their sorority, and
know everybody who works on the Ensian.
W/ELL, THERE THEY ARE-opportunities you may never meet again, and
all it takes is an eligibility card and a sturdy larynx. Activities keep
you out of mischief, do wonders for your ego and what would the tele'phone
company do without them?
