Change in Rules
A change in campus rules regard-
ing latenesses beyond late permis-
sions was announced yesterday by
Jean Louise Hole, chairman of Wom-
en's Judiciary Council.
Under the new rules, when a coed
is less than 15 minutes later than
her special permission, she will be
required to make up this lateness at
the rate of 15 make-up minutes for
each minute she was late beyond her
Any lateness-of 15 minutes or more
over her late permission will necessi-
tate the coed's appearing before the
Judiciary Council. Under previous
rules any lateness over a special per-
mission was considered a violation for
which a woman was brought before
The new regulation applies to late
permissions granted to those attend-
ing late dances, concerts, and lec-
tures, as well as permissions granted
by the Office of the Dean of Women
and by house directors.
Both regular latenesses and late-
nesses over late permissions are to be
made up on the Friday or Saturday
following the lateness. Miss Hole ex-
plainedFthat the coeddmay choose
either Friday or Saturday to make
up her time, and that she need not
have a date on that night.
For all coeds interested in living
in cooperative houses, it was recently
announced that five openings would
be available for next semester. Inter-
views will be held at Muriel Lester
House, 1102 Oakland, tomorrow at 5
p'm. Application blanks should be
secured at Stevens House, 816 Forest,'

Speech Fraternity Promotes
Maintenance of High Standard
By SHIIRLEE RICH
Zeta Phi Eta, the National Profes-
sional Speech Arts Fraternity, is
made up of outstanding women in
speech production, dramatic enter-
tainment, and speech clinic work.
The fraternity was founded Oct.
10, 1893 at Northwestern University.
Chapters were in turn begun all over
the country, and in 1930, the 'U.
chapter, Lambda, was founded. There
are now twenty-six chapters in all.
The purpose of the organization
is to band together groups of se-
lected college women interested in
maintaining high standards of
speech, and to build a professional
philosophy for women engaged in
speech product'on. In order to pro-
mote and maintain better under-
standing between colleges and uni-
versities teaching the speech arts,
a National Convention is held bi-
annually, and a national magazine,
"The Cameo," is published. The fra-
ternity is active in stimulating and
encouraging all worthy speech and
In addition to the active members,
who are coeds with outstanding rec-
ords in speech work, there are associ-
ate members, chosen from the facul-
ty, and honorary memnbers of national
fame in speech and dramatic arts.
Among the honorary members are
such celebrities as: Fay Bainter,
Madeline Carroll, Olivia de Havil-
land. Lynn Fortaie, Ruth Gordon,
1 argaret Webster, and Cornelia Otis
T'he activities of Zeta Phi Eta on
campus are varied and interesting.
Often, teas are given at the Speech
Clinic to help the patients adjust
themselves in social situations.
Members also aid in serving re-
freshments at Speech Assemblies.
One of the main ,jibs of the group
is to usher for Play Production
plays, especially on opening nights.
The 'U' chapter publishes its own
paper, 'The Spotlight," in which
campus drama events are announced,
and general information concerning
speech activities is given. These pa-
pers are accessible to all students in
The present officers of the organi-
zation are: Harriet Risk, president;
Janice Carter, vice-president; Mar-
jorie Hettler, treasurer; Pat Owens,
recording secretary; Barbara Eder,
corresponding secretary; and Kath-
leen Watson, social chairman.

on the publicity committee for the

Not only artists and coeds to write
and act in skits, but women inter-
