EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last in a
series of articles on the Michigan League,
its facilities, activities and personnel.
Today's article is concerned with seve-
ral committees which function in con-
junction with League Council.
One of the important activities
conducted by University coeds is ori-
entation for both freshmen and
transfer women. The orientation
committee confers with University
officials on orientation procedure
and introduces the new student to
both the academic and social phases
of college living. Orientation periods
are scheduled at the beginning of
each full semester, and in addition
have been carried on for the sum-
mer program.
At the present time, various cam-
pus drives, such as Red Cross, In-
fantile Paralysis Drive, or Norwegian
Relief are conducted by the treasur-
er of the League Council, with the
aid of two junior assistants. How-
ever, the 1946-47 League Council
will have a special Drives chairman
as one of its members in addition to
the treasurer.

Committee is responsible for those
