of faculty, student, alumnae and
other groups within the building.
Mrs. Wheeler is a native of
Michigan and holds the Bachelor

Open to Coeds
"'Mademoiselle," nationally-
known periodical for career and
college women, has again invited
coeds to submit their names for
membership on the College Board,
an organized department of the
magazine staffed by women from
campuses all over the country.
The purpose of the College
Board is to give career-minded
students an opportunity to con-
tribute to a professional magazine
while still in college and to ob-
tain a working knowledge of their
field of interest.
Guest Editors Chosen
Approximately 1,000 students
are chosen each year, from which
20 of the most outstanding achieve
the positions of Guest Editors.
These 20 are honored with a trip
to New York for the month of
June, during which time they
work closely with "Mademoi-
selle's" editors in putting out the
August "Back to College" issue.
Three assignments are made
to College Board members during
the year. Members are urged to
choose their own subjects and
utilize their specific talents in
completing these assignments.
University Coed Guest Editor
A Guest Editorship was award-
ed last spring to a University of
Michgian coed, Mary Lou Gork,
who has continued her work in
New York as a permanent mem-
ber of the magazine's staff.
Coeds interested in the fields!
of fiction and non-fiction writing,
art, fashion and promotion are
asked to contact Ann Gestie, 2-
2543 or Bernice Calkins, 2-4547,
members of the Personnel Com-
mittee of the League.

Offices of the Student Book
Exchange will close for the re-
mainder of the term Friday.

As we were the last arrivals
everyone else in camp rushed
out to greet us. Slightly weary
and numb, I fell out of the truck
and was picked up by a muscu-
lar fellow with curly blond hair
and beard. "Howdy," he said,
and I replied in my best western
drawl, "Ah reckon so, youall."
I dragged my assorted equip-
ment over to hogan 11 where I
was to be housed along with five
other womenA hogan is a Navajo
house, circular with stone floor
and walls and log roof.
THE HOGAN was furnished (I
use the term loosely) with six
bunks, two small tables and a
shelf. Chicken wire, substituting
for springs, was stretched over the
beds. I was lucky enough to have
a "mattress" on my bunk, as not
everyone was afforded this luxury.
I rushed out of the hogan as the
dinner gong rang.
The mess hall was alive with
people fighting for seats at the
long tables. I sat down and was
practically knocked unconscious
as a platter of tomatoes sailed
over my head. A number of other
dishes and platters flew past be-
fore I was able to grab something
to eat.
Seeing the bread at the far
end of the table, I said to the
person next to me, "Would you
please pass the bread?" Above
the din he didn't seem to hear
me, so I repeated the question.
Getting no answer, I stood on
