Guardian Arngel
Of Slide Rule
Treading the well - indented
footsteps of Miss Hush and Mr.
Finn, follows the new campus'
mystic, Mr. SHH.
Mr. SHH is. the guardian angel
of the Slide Rule Ball. His iden-
tity is known only to Phil Stem-
mer and Karl Hennion II of the
dance committee. These two have
vowed on a stack of Technics to
withhold the information from
the questioning hordes.
Hints of Mr. SHH's identity
will be furnished in Daily ads
preceding the dance. During
the intermission of the hail five
couples will be selected from the
dancers who will test their
prowess at identifying Mr. SHH.
Hints will grow with increas-
ing rapidity and obviousness
until Mr. SHH is identified.
The prize for the winner is not
one of the ordinary prizes such
as an eight-story house, new Buick
convertible or a washing machine.
Hennion, publicity director, prom-
ises a new and different prize
for the identifier of Mr. SHH.

other will imitate the man on the.

This annual event has been th(
main source for replenishment of

Students. This fund is used tc
help students who find themselves
in financial difficulties. Because
of the extreme shortage of dollars
abroad at present, the Fund is
being used to a greater extent
than before. Repayments have
necessarily been delayed. Calls on
the Fund have been further mul-
tiplied because of the increased
number of foreign students at-
tending the university.

What mysteries lie behind tha
dark paneled door in the Under
graduate office of the League with
the glaring black and white "in-
terviewing" sign spread across it,
This question has been antici-
pated by Michigan coeds through
out innumerable interviewing ses-
sions for League positions since
the League first set up its ex-
tensive organization offeing op-
portunities in leadership for scores
of University women.
United under League Council
are more than. 200 positions
which give valuable experience,
job training and a chance to
meet and make friends outside
of house and dormitory groups,
while teaching leadership and
To be placed in these positions
Michigan women must petition
and interview. By petitioning is
meant the presentation of a paper
containing information covering
organization, changes, original
ideas, special plans and qualifica-
tions concerning a desired job. By
interviewing is meant a short dis-
cussion about the petitioner's pro-
posed plans and qualifications.
Someone is needed to do the
highly important work of measur-
ing these petitions and selecting
the best qualified. Thus originates
the interviewing committee, which
carries on its operations behind
the door in the "undergrad" of-
Consisting of the senior chair-
man and secretary, three jun-
iors and two sophomores, the
Interviewing Committee holds
mass meetings explaining peti-
tioning, informs house activity,
managers, and then proceeds
to accept and grade petitions
and conduct interviewing for
the positions offered.
For the sake of clarity the com-
mittee holds divided class petition-
ing so that each class is petition-
ing during a separate period. At
present this process is being held
for sophomore coeds.
Suggestions for petition writing
are also given by the interviewers.
They recommend calling the prev-
ious holder of the position, con-
sulting the League Lowdown and
looking up the President's reports,
which contain yearly reports of
all League chairmen." Outline
form stripped of generalities is
very desirable," states Jo Reuland,
chairman of the Interviewing
In rating the petitions the
group uses a system of P stand-
ing for possibility, A for very
good and N for nil with supple-
mentary plus and minuses being
used. Grading is divided among
the members so that no girl
may grade the paper of another
member of her house.

t Put the interviewee at ease. Ques-
tions are asked and answered by
i both interviewers and interviewees
- and it is here that the coed may
s express herself concerning all the
things she "meant to include" or
- "just thought of."
The real work of choosing comes
next. The petition grades are im-
portant usually rating the top
three or four women for consider-
- ation but other items must be
s given notice. A coed's affiliation.
keeping the balance between
houses and independents, persist-
ent interest shown in previous un-
successful petitions, and refer-
ences and knowledge of the peti-
tioner are all considered. For ex-
ample, a woman petitioning for a
second time, though once unsuc-
cessful, would be prefei-red to a
woman of equal grades who has,
already received a position. #
Because a coed may receive
help in writing her paper, the
interview is weighted heavily in
the decision, but ability is al-
ways the first consideration.
After its decisions the Inter-
viewing committee submits a first
and second choice to the League
Council for approval; then these
are hastened on for final O.K. by
the electoral board of the inter-
viewing chairmen, the Dean of
Women, the Social Director of the
League, Judiciary chairman and
the President of the League.
The committee meanwhile com-
piles lists of adequately qualified
women who petitioned and gives
them to the newly selected chair-
man for the purposes of choosing
her committee.
