dent chaperone responsible to the
Dean of Women for maintaining
University standards as to living
conditions and conduct. Patro-
nesses chosen chiefly from among
faculty wives serve in an advisory
capacity to the Board of Gover-
nors of Residence Halls which is
charged with general supervision.
Student government regulates
closing hours, quiet hours for
study, and extra-curricular activi-
ties. In each residence a living
room is set aside where guests
may be entertained and informal
gatherings held by the students.
Trained dietitians supervise
,dormitory dining rooms. and dor-
mnitory residents take their mels
where they live. Special diets are
not obtainable in the residences.
In each of the large halls there
is a house nurse designated by
the University Health Service.

U' Alumnae
Keep Up Old
The University was one of the
first of the large universities to be-
come coeducational and the first
to be represented at an early na-
tional alumnae conference spon-
sored by the Association of Col-
legiate Alumnae, now known as
the American Association of Uni-
versity Women.
Although University alumnae
have been active since the first co-
ed graduated in 1871, they did not
organize into a group until 1917.
University Interests
In this year, the Central Cor-
respondence Committee began di-
recting work "to do more for
Michigan women and to stand by
all interests and achievements of
the University as expressed
through her Alumnae Associa-
The purchase of a self-help
house maintained by women stud-
ents was the first project of' the
alumnae. A house on Washtenaw
Avenue was occupied, and in 1926,
the Regents acquired the present
Marty Markley house, earlier
known as Alumnae House.
With the growth of alumna
groups, the name Central Corres-
pondence Committee was no long-
er representative of that organi-
zatijn oi. Accdingly,na
1920, 1-as cange at to Auia
Council of Alumni Association.
Too Small
Until 1928, alumnae headquar-
ters as well, as all women's organi-
zations were housed in Barbour
Gymnasium which had been built
to accommodate only 400 women
Then the Women's League be-
gan the fund for a separate wom-
en's building in 1921, and the
Alumnae Council embarked upon
a campaign to raise $1,000,000 for
it. When half the sum was raised,
the Regents donated the land on
which the building now stands,
and m June, 1929, the formal dedi-
cation took place.
Council Heads
Mrs. Mary Barton Henderson,
'94, was the first executive secre-
tary of the Alumnae Council. She
served from 1917 to 1930. Mrs.
Marguerite Maire held the posi-
tion until 1932 and was succeeded
by Mrs. Lucille B. Conger.
Among the permanent projects
of the Council is a program of
student aid based on broad lines,
awarding of current scholarships
and fellowships and the establish-
ment of permanent endowments

in $10,000 units as basic funds for
graduate fellowships.
University women are noted for
their neatness and smart clothes,
Jean, sloppy bobby socks and
scuffed shoes belongs to the high
school set. Attire at all meals is
within the relms of good taste and
there is a rigid taboo on curlers
worn by lazy coeds at meals.

ettes are an additional conven-
ience. Although the equipment of
each room varies, the University
prescribes basic furnishings: bed,
desk, chair, dresser, mirror and
lamp. Laundry and pressing fa-
cilities are available for limited
Furnish Supplies
Residence halls (not League
Houses) furnish bed linen, a bed
pillow, and one pair of blankets.
Each student is expected to bring
towels, dresser scarf, bedspread
for single bed, and any extra bed
The pamphlet continues with a
description of the Michigan
League as the women's social or-
ganization, and of the League's
extracurricular activities, con-
cludaing as follows:
"Counselling in the Office of the
Dean of Women seeks to integrate
the varied experiences which the
students share on this coeduca-
tional campus. The hours of study
and relaxation spent in the com-
pionship of others engaged in con-
genial pursuits are, like the hours
spent, in library ad lecture halls,
regarded as an essential part of
University life."

meeting will be held to ac-
quaint women with Assembly
activities. During the subsequent
week members of the Board will
visit every independent resi-
dence to explain the functions
and plans of the group. High-
light of the program will be a
show given in the League.
Traditional events of Assembly
include Assembly Recognition
Night, which honors outstanding
independent women. Talks and
awards are given and dessert is
Another annual event is Assem-
bly Ball, which will be presented
in the early spring. Petitioning
for the central committee will be
held at the end of the fall term.
This dance is traditionally coed-
bid. Coke bars at all campus
dances are managed by Assembly
women as a money-raising project.
The series of league house tea
dances presented last year will
be continued on Saturday after-
noons in the League Balroom.
The project was begun because
many campus residences are too
small to hold their own dances
and parties.
Assembly, in collaboration with
Panhellenic, is p],apning a Frosh
Weekend to be held in the spring.
Petitioning for the various As-
sembly positions will be held
throughout the year. Assembly
Office is located in Room D in the
League where membership cards
may be picked up at any time.
