ton, vice-president in charge of dor-
mitories, will act as master of cere-
Monies for the affair. Other events

the trials and tribulations they are
often forced to endure in regulating
the dormitory life of University coeds.

prize. Skits will be limited to five

ening will be dressed as clowns. As-
sembly's slogan for the affair is, "Hop
on the Assembly Merry-Go-Round."
The program will conclude with the
audience singing favorite college
songs. ,
Initiated Last Year
Assembly Fortnight, which is a

week of specially planned activities,
was initiated last year in order to
acquaint independent women with
the traditions and projects of their
Association, and with the functions
of the League as a whole. This year
members of the organization will
continue the 'precedent by visiting
various residences for independent
women in order to answer questions
and to explain more fully the work-
ings of the Association. This pro-
gram will continue until the presen-
tation of Recognition Night.
All independent women on campus,
particularly new coeds, are cordially
invited to attend the Fortnight Show

"Coeds need not be expert riders
to try out for the club, but some rid-
ing experience is necessary," Miss
Larsen said.
Tryouts will be scheduled for a
later date.

Even if one hasn't the price of a
cigarette he can rush to the blue
room and inhale a little of the atmos-
phere guaranteed to give one nico-

Social opportunities abound for the
coeds who are ready and waiting with
matches because those handsome vet-
erans have to run out of lighter fliud
sooner or later.
There are two ways to strike up
an acquaintance in the smoking
room-either borrow.a cigarette or
borrow a match. A very few still
rely on the call of Bacall and curl
themselves around the door with

seen through the haze.

(Editor's Note: This is the first in a
series of articles in which the Office of
the Dean of Women answers questions
asked by freshmen women during the
orientation period.)
Question: "Where does the woman
veteran fit into the University pic-
ture? We are not graduate students,
but are out of the undergraduate age
Answer: The woman veteran will
receive special consideration on
campus because of her war record.
It is true that most are slightly
older than the average coed be-
cause of their length of service.
Although student government reg-
lations apply to veteran and non-
veteran alike living in organized
women's residences, the veteran
woman is free to apply for such
special permissions as she needs.
Because women veterans share
some mutual interests apart from
those of non-veteran women, the
University Women Veteran's Asso-
ciation, the first of its kind in the
country, has been organized. The
association has planned special func-
tions for veteran women, such as
their recent open house at the League
to welcome the women veterans and
help them to know the campus.
The residents of the Willow Run
dormitory for women are largely
veterans. Because of the bus sched-
ule, regular closing hours cannot
be kept. Instead, the residents will
set up their own regulations in
conjunction with the house direc-
Special social programs at Willow
Run have already been planned. The
first Friday night dance at the West
Lodge Community Building will be
held Friday, Oct. 11, and all resi-
dents of the women's dormitory are
invited to attend.

All those who intend to work on
the various activities must bring
their eligibility cards to the mass
meeting. Any one who will be un-
able to attend tomorrow's meeting
should contact the chairman of the
committee in which she would like
to participate.
