Committees, like the rain, fall
fast and furious upon the coeds of
our campus; oftentimes overlooked
in the mad scramble of activities,
but still one of the most important
of these is -the League Merit-Tu-

On the merit side of the ledg-

sition on campus is recorded
and kept on file in the Merit-
Tutorial office, located behind
the main desk in the lobby of
the League, for future reference
for judiciary and interviewing
councils, honor societies and fu-
ture employers.
Women who work in the office
keeping these files have ample op-

committee at a mass meeting to
be held later in the week.

Coed Library
Proves Study
In Comfort
Too few coeds realize that they
possess an ideal study spot all
their own, the League Library.
Seats of all shapes, sizes and
depths are situated throughout the
room so that even the coed with
the most unusual sedentary study
habits should be able to make her-
self comfortable.
Those who enjoy studying minus
their shoes, in jeans or curled up
in their favorite contortion can
make themselves right at home in
the Library.
THE LIBRARY on the third
floor of the League has an ex-
tensive book collection lining its
walls. Though most of the books
are not texts or for the classroom,
there are quite a number of novels,
dramas and books of poetry which
are used in University English
The coed stronghold also has
an outstanding selection of cur-
rent novels, and has magazines
for casual reading and encyclo-
pedias for reference work.
Beginning this semester, a radio
will be provided in the room so
that coeds may listen to the away
football games with their dates on
Saturday afternoons.
* * *
OPERATING the Library is the
League Council. The League vice-
president, Dorothy Fogel, *orks
closely with the librarian, Miss Ida
V. Jenks, in its supervision.
Miss Fogel has welcomed sug-
gestions from women for the
improvement of the Library's
facilities or schedule.
The Library will be open at the
following times during this semes-
ter: Monday to Friday, 1 to 5:30
p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m.; Saturday,
(except on home games, when it
will be closed) 1 to 5:30 p.m. and
