Revised'No Male' Rule in League
Explained by Social Director

Coed Activities Brought to Light
By League Publicity Chairman

"With malice toward none" the
League has revived its pre-war
rule prohibiting unescorted men
on the building's second and third
The rule will not apply on Fri-
day, Saturday and Sunday nights,
but at all other times. Another
new point in League policy will not
allow studying in the Grand Rap-
ids Room. This room will be used
solely for recreation.
According to Miss Ethel Mc-
Cormick, the League Social Direc-
tor, the regulation is not intended
as a measure of retaliation against
the restrictions imposed on coeds
at the Union.
IT tS being re-enforced now to
-elieve the crowded conditions
which have prevailed at the League
since men were permitted to use
its facilities to a great extent dur-
ing the war years.
The League was established in
1929 by women student alumnae
for the convenience of Univer-
sity women. It became the cen-

ter of coed activities and func-
tioned much like a club. Men
were allowed in the building
only when accompanied by a

During the war, however, regu-

fit of the soldiers. The USO was

Wig and Robe
To Be Given



Wig and Robe Ball, the annual
pre-Christmas dance sponsored by
the Barristers Society for all law
students, will be held from 9 p.m.
to midnight Friday, Dec. 3 in the
Union Ballroom.
Frank Tinker and his orchestra
will provide music for the semi-
formal dance which will be along
a legal theme.
Ticket takers as well as the dec-
orations will provide the tra-
ditional barrister atmosphere
dressed in wigs and robes, while
renowned barristers of the past
will line the walls in charicature.
Even programs will be old scripts
written in a legal style.
The old engineer-lawyer feud
will again emerge at the dance
since all but engineers are invited
to attend Wig and Robe, while the
lawyers are barred from Slide Rule
Excepting engineers, the dance
will be open to all. Tickets will be
on sale at the Law School in the
corridor between classes and in
the Law Club. Tickets may also be
obtained from members of the
Barristers, according to William
Porter, general chairman for the
Assisting chairman Porter will
be Arthur Rude. Decorations will
be under the direction of James
Sprunk, Arthur Northrup and
Fred Clausen, while John Gorn
and John Galbraith will handle

tainment for servicemen was pre-
sented there.
ALSO, WITH enrollment soar-
ing, study space was scarce and
the League threw open many of its
rooms to men students. Hoards of
men gradually invaded its prem-
ises and coeds began to be crowded
out of their own institution.
Now that the emergencies of
wartime have passed, the League
is attempting to regain male-
occupied space for the use of
women students.
Men who are accustomed to
studying there are so thoroughly
entrenched in the comfortable,
friendly atmosphere that they are
indignant to abide by the revived
Streams of complaints have al-
ready been registered, but League
women are determined to restore
this sanctum.

'THE LAYOUT and technical
training is also a good foundation
for the future, according to the
busy publicity leader.
The paint daubers are the
backbone of any publicity com-
mittee and the League coin-
mands a gigantic number of

formative and attractive posters
are created by her willing com-
mittee is no mean job, in the
opinion'of the chairman.
Window risplrys and other
"Rah Rah" tactics are also em-
ployed by the League which might
include anything from Barbour

Trippi, the wolverine.
With such a wealth of experi-
ence Miss Culligan hopes that
she can go into post college jobs
with an "I can do it," and expe-
rience. She urges anyone who
likes a little bit of everything to

Designed specifically for stu-

dance sessions are devoted mainly
to helping them with techniques
of moving which are valuable to

for example, and falling without
breaking an arm or shaking the
theatre are emphasized. Dr. Juana

Physical Education, teaches the

and Thursday in Barbour Gymna-
year, play production students
were asked to sign up for the
classes. From the group, nine men
and 14 women asked to take the
course at that time. Music is pro-

vided by a School of Music student
at the piano.
Characterization, behavior
movement and some pantomine
work are included in the pro-
gram of the classes. Classical
Greek chorus movement, using
the tragic, comic and heroic,
has been studied as well.
AT THE MOMENT, the group
has been studying Shakespearean
movement, which involves the for-
mal and the folksy, depending on
the character.
A Christmas program is
planned with the School of Mu-
sic which will include the play
production class, Modern Dance

Dr. Laban believes that these
classes are helpful especially to ac-
tors because it helps them to make
the body an aid to speech. The
classes will meet again, next se-
mester if interest continues.
