Miss Clare particularly stressed the
importance of the Coke Bar Chair-

in the Office of the Social Director,
and coeds must sign for interviews
at the time petitions are turned in.

the Merit-Tutorial Committee, and
Assembly Membership cards, which
may be procured in Room D on the

Miss Clare urges all interested in-
dependent women to apply for these
posts, since it is an opportunity for
them to become an integral part of
their organization.
