Petitioning Opens for League Posts

C '

Editor's Note:-This article intro-
duces a series of informative sketches
of positions on the League Under-
graduate Council which will appear
daily on the Women's Page.
Michigan is made vital, more
than a school, through active par-
ticipation in the women's self-
governing body, the Michigan
League, according to League Pres-
ident, Pat McKenna.
In urging junior women to file
petitions for senior league posi-
tions, which will be due at 5 p.m.
Monday, Nov. 29, Miss McKenna
amphasizes four outstanding ad-
vantages in being an integral part
of the Michigan League: knowl-
edge of campus affairs, personal
relationships, training for the fu-
ture and study habits.
Chairmanship of one of the
League standing committees
means membership on the League
Undergraduate Council, sounding
board for opinions of Michigan
* * *
WHAT DOES this official body
do? Essentially they represent the
women on campus. Through co-
ordinating the activities of all theI
standing committees and keeping

abreast of student events they
gain a birds-eye view of campus
The Board of Governors, the
Electoral Board, the Student
Affairs Committee -these are
the University Governing bodies
who are in constant contact
with League Council executives.
Through these associations and
through their own vast organiza-
tion League Council views from
the "inside" the broad Scope, 'of
University and campus affairs.
"The campus becomes personal
with you," states Miss McKenna.
*, * *
AS A COMMITTEE head and a
member of League Council per-
sonal relationship experience will
be invaluable, agree this year's
Council members.
Not only do League officers
and chairman come to know
University officials as "real"
people, but they gain a wealth
of knowledge from working with
the "little people," the students
who are the real force behind
their committees.
Handling a committee to run a
social event or perhaps a tutoring
system requires tact and under-

standing, say those who hold the
reins this year. -
FACED WITH a group whose
talents and temperaments vary
greatly, a chairman must given
and take. As a committee func-
tions, there is a flow of ideas in
both directions-up to the direc-
tor and down to the committee
The experience of adequately
combining efficiency and per-
sonality opens the way to one of
the most important aspects of
League positions, job training.
Women who expect to hold
down executive positions will value
their previous leadership responsi-
bilities and group contacts. Per-
sonal problems of committee work
may also lead directly to person-
nel work in post-college days.
* * *
STUDIES, contrary to most
popular thought, may also bene-
fit from activity work. "Good
marks and League activities seem
to coincide," says President Mc-
By keeping busy, students
learn how to budget their time
effectively and avoid the com-
mon lethargy that keeps them
in the "C" category.

Those who want to take a place
in this vital organization have a
wealth of reference and advice at
their hands.
I"HEY MAY consult the Presi-
dents' Reports found in the League
Library and in the Undergraduate
Office in the afternoon, the League
Lowdown, The League Constitu-
tion and present members.
"Come in and see me," says
President McKenna, who would
like to talk with prospective
Council members concerning
their ambitions and possibilities.
Following this article the Wo-
men's page will run a series of
informal "portraits of positions,"
which will give a picture of the
job of each council member.
Executive positions on League
Council which are open for peti-
tioning are president, vice-presi-
dent, secretary, treasurer, chair-
man of judiciary committee and
chairman of interviewing commit-
Standing committee chairman-
ships will be benefit drives, dance
class, merit-tutorial, orientation,
personnel, publicity, social and
representative on the student book
