Cards Ready
For Members
Of Assembly
Assembly membership cards are
now being distributed to all inde-
pendent women from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday in the Assembly office
on the second floor of the League,
according to Helen Alpert, Assem-
bly president.
This is the first year that Assembly
has had membership cards. They are
being introduced for the purpose of
providing tangible evidence of asso-
ciation with Assembly Organization.
The Assembly Board has had no
means of determining the extent of
active interest of independent women
in the past. The cards will provide
this information.
Cards are being issued to both
league house and dormitory residents,
and will be required for participation
in several Assembly functions and
activities. The cards will be a re-
quisite for admission to League House
dances, for which plans are now being
formulated, for all Assembly com-
mittees such as those for the annual
Assembly Panhel Ball and for all
house officer positions.
Each coed upon receiving a card
will be asked to register her name in
a leather-bound book which will
serve as the official Assembly regis-
ter. The cards, which are white,
printed in blue with the Assembly
seal at the top, will be honored by
Assembly throughout the four college
years of the independent women.
All unaffiliated women are urged
by"Miss Alpert to call for their mem-
bership cards as soon as possible in
order that they may be officially reg-
istered as members of Assembly.

Howard Liebee, "Gym-Jam" Caller,
Collects Country Dances as a Hobby

lead the dances at the "Gym-
Jam," has for many years made a
hobby of collecting American country
dances from all parts of the United
Mr. Leibee, who is in charge of the
required work in physical education
for men at Waterman Gym, has
made several tours of the country,
during .which he collected various
types of dancing, calls, and folk
songs. These dances, which are pe-
culiar to the several sections of the
United States, are of many types, and
include Canadian and Southern
dances as well as varied forms of the
square dances.
AS HIS HOBBY, Mrs. Leibee learns
the calls and songs, and teaches
them to various groups. He has in-
structed at teachers' meetings, par-
ents' clubs, and student gatherings.

Although many people think of
them as 'old-time' dances, these
country dances are danced by a great
many Americans today," Mr. Leibee
said. He added, "I have been told
that they are danced by greater num-
Ibers of people than participate in so-
called social dancing."
IN HIS travels in search of new
dances, calls, and songs, Mr. Leibee
has visited almost every section of
the United States, including the
West, the Ozarks, and the South. He
has also collected dances in Canada.
At the "Gym-Jam" he will'teach
novelty couple dances, such as the
Rye waltz and the Schottish, as well
as many of the American country
dances, including polkas and square
Although intensely interested in
country and so-called "folk" dances,
Mr. Leibee also likes social dancing.
