Coeds May Petition
For League Council
Personnel Posi~tions
Judiciary Council Announces Interviewing
For Chairman, Two Assistants To Help
With Student Book Exchange, Ushering

n X _.._ _


Petitioning for the position of
League Council personnel chairman
and for two junior personnel assis-
tants will begin today, Ruthann Bales,
chairman of Judiciary Council, an-
nounced yesterday.
The personnel chairmanship is
open to all eligible first semester sen-
iors and second semester juniors. The
two assistant positions are open to
all eligible first semester juniors and
second semester sophomores.
jPetitions may be obtained in the
Frosh Mixer
To Be Given
Frosh Fun Fest, a mixer for fresh-
man women, will be held from 3:30
to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30, in
the, League Ballroom.
The Social Committee of the
League is sponsoring the party, at
which there will be card games, danc-
ing and refreshments. Dorothy
Wantz, chairman of the social com-
mittee, urged all freshman women to
attend in order to become acquainted
with each other, and unify their ex-
ceptionally large class.
"We believe that the class of 1949,
which will be the first peacetime
class to graduate, will help revive
Michigan traditions abandoned dur-
ing the war, especially the spirit of
friendliness for which this campus
was formerly noted. Since these
freshman women are ineligible for
activities and restrained from contact
with many women on campus by
Panhellenic contact rules, we feel
that this mixer will be one of their
few opportunities to meet other stu-
dents, and hope that all of them will
attend," Miss Wantz stressed.

FROM REMARKS dropped by professors and others who daily broaden
my intellectual horizon, or try to, I have gathered that what this campus
needs is a good five-cent brochure on Russia. The student body is steeped
in tragic ignorance concerning this Great White Hope of civilization.
The hallmark of the Intellectual is a noticeable twitching of the eye-
balls, (and tongue), at any mention of Russia, and as part of my cam-
paign to become recognized as an Intellectual, I propose to add my insig-
nificant contribution to the Cause with a short resume of the vital facts
concerning Russia.
IN TI FIRST PLACE, Russia is a big country, awfully big. Even bigger
than Texas, although few Texans will admit this. There are lots of,
people there, and we have much in common with them. You may not havej
noticed this, but you will, brother, you will.
Russia has all sorts of modern conveniences, including cold winters,
vodka, and the Only Really Efficient Form of Government, but no coast-
line in the right places. Nasty old Britain is keeping it landlocked. Until
recently nasty isolationist old Congress was unjustly depriving it of the
atomic bomb, but now they have a better one anyway, so there too.
RUSSIA REALLY WANTS world peace and security from aggression. It
also wants the Balkans, and if the Balkans would hold still for a1
minute and stop forming coalitions antagonistic to Russia, they would find,
themselves being nicely developed commercially all over the place. Com-;
mercial development is a Russian invention, not to be confused with what'
those awful British have been doing in India, which we call exploitation.

"Discard the old and replace it.
with the new," all for the students'
benefit, is the new standard of the
League Library.
Previously the League Library was
a nice place to rest, and perhaps
browse through thebooks, but was
used to no great extent for the pur-
pose of study. The chairs were soft
and the atmosphere pleasant, but the
supply of books was very scarce. With
the addition of many new reference
books, the library, now under the
careful supervision of Jane Strauss,
secretary of the League Council, is
fast becoming a favorite place of
study on campus.
In addition to this new reference
material there will be a shelf of books
contributed from the 'proceeds of the
Junior Girls Play of last year.
Dr. Warner Rice, the director of
the general library, has given much
assistance in the replenishing pro-
gram, by offering lists of books which
he had used formerly in opening ex-
tension libraries.
