SPOTLIGHT ON WOMEN:
Judic, Panhel, Assembly Wield Power,

Independent Bosses

AT RACKHAM TODAY:

Composer's Forum To
Feature Student Works

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
fourth in a series of articles to
acquaint students with some of the
inluential organizations on campus
ald how members and officials are
chosen.)
By PETER HOTTON
Women take the long-awaited
spotlight by virtue of several ex-
clusively female organizations on
campus: Women's Judiciary, As-
sembly Association and Panhel-
lenic Association.
But men need an eagle eye
kept on their conduct as well as
women, and Men's Judiciary
Council is the student organiza-
tion to do just that.
* * *
MEN'S JUDIC, as usually called,
passes judgement on cases con-
cerning infractions of Student
Legislature regulations, infraction
of University rules referred to the
Council by the Office of Student
Affairs and subcommittee on
discipline, and violation of stu-
dent conduct rules under the Uni-
versity initiated by the Council
itself.
Seven members, three of
whom are elected each spring
and four each fall, make up the
Judic. Any eligible male stu-
dent is qualified to petition a
Student Legislatureuappoint-
ments board made up of the
male members of the SL cabi-
net and president of the Judic.
Appointments come directly
from the board.
Judiciary president and secre-
tary are selected each semester
by and from the returning and
newly-appointed members.
The exclusively female organi-
zations are quite tightly or-
ganized within the League, which
controls the majority of official
appointments.
Ome * * *IF' *
Women's :Judiciary...
Women's Judiciary Council,
consisting of four seniors, three
juniors and six sophomore aides,
has undergone extensive changes

this year, and not only serves as
a judiciary body but a "women's
counseling service" as well.
Appointments are made by the
League's powerful interviewing
committee, plus three women
members of SL, who have a little-
used power of veto. Approval of
appointments must come from
the equally powefiul League Elec-
toral Board.
EACH YEAR a chairman and
secretary are selected by the Board
to serve one year.
The six sophomore aides act
as all-around handy-women.
The Judiciary's counseling ser-
vice is for any woman or women's
group which wants it. Disciplin-
ing is done in cases involving in-
fractions of house rules set up by
the women themselves, or cases
reported by the Dean of Women.
The presidents of both judici-
aries are members of several Uni-
versity groups, including the Stu-
dent Affairs Committee, Univer-
sity Subcommittee on Discipline
and other boards and committees
by invitation.
* * *
Assembly Association . .
Women's counterpart of AIM is
Assembly Association, of which
every independent woman on
campus is a member.
This group is governed by three
separate groups: the Executive
Board (officers) of Assembly,
Dormitory House President's
Council and League House Presi-
dent's Council.
* * *
OFFICERS include the usual
executives plus social, project and
personnel chairmen, and are se-
lected by petition and interviews
to the outgoing officers, who
screen petitioners down to two for
each office. The League Council
elects a candidate by three-
fourths vote.
Members of the other two

councils are elected as heads of
their individual dorms or
houses.
The president is an ex-officio
member of the League Council
and chairman of the dorm unit
President's Council.
THE THREE chairmen have
charge of Assembly's various pro-
jects throughout the year, namely,
the Fresh Air Camp, support of a
displaced person, A-Hop, Assem-
bly Ball and Assembly Fortnight.
General Assembly positions,
such as chairmanships of Assem-
bly project committees, are avail-
able to any eligible woman
through petition to the League
Council.
* * *
Panhel Association . .
Panhellenic Association for af-
filiated women, like the Judici-
ary and Assembly, is subject to
the powers of the League.
Though one of its chief func-
tions is to organize rushing acti-
vities, Panhel also seeks to pro-
,mote a strong spirit of unity be-
tween affiliated and indepen-
dent women, by setting up and
carrying through student-faculty
teas, Fresh Air Camp Tag Day,
Frosh Week-End, Recognition
Night and Panhel Ball.
** *
EACH OF THE University's 21
sororities sends three delegates to
make up the Association's mem-
bership.
Guiding light of the general-
body is the Executive Board,
composed of president, two
vice-presidents, rushing and
recording secretaries and their
assistants and treasurer.
Candidates for these offices
may petition the outgoing cabi-
net, whose selections are depen-
dent on the approval of the
League Undergraduate Council.
Forty-nine committee heads and
subehairmen are appointed upon
petition to the Executive Board.
General committee memberships
are open to any eligible member of
Panhel.

campus organization, The
Daily business staff.)

COLLEGE

By Seymour Harris
A top economist gives an up to-the-
minute report on present and future
outlets for college graduates in busi-
ness, law, teaching, medicine, engi-
neering, and other professions. Here
is devastating evidence that within a
few years we will have 2 or 3 college
graduates for every job they have
been trained for. Here, too, are defi-
nite proposals for a solution to the

80 Proj' eets
Research work under the ad-
ministration of the University Re-
search Institute totaled $2,656,-
523.57 for the fiscal year 194-49,
according to Prof. A. E. White
director of the Institute.
Heading the list of 80 projects
completed by the Institute was
the development of more efficient
selection and treatment of high
temperature alloys for jet air-
craft engines.
ANOTHER project resulted in
a new superheated steam method
for use in certain industrial dry-
ing processes which may save in-
dustrial firms many thousands of
dollars.
Even more widely publicized
was the first collection of sam-
ples of the atmosphere above
100,000 feet by the use of high
altitude r'ockets.
Other research activities carried
on throughout the year included
work on cosmic ray research,
beach erosion problems, develop-
ment of synthetic lubricants, a
supersonic wind tunnel and ex-
tensive work on the defensive use
of guided missiles.
* * *
ALTOGETHER, the Institute
reported work on 202 research
projects during the year. Of this
total, 151 were government spon-
sored.
Among the 1,064 persons en-
gaged in project work, 493 were
students receiving training in re-
search technique and application,
Prof. White said.
King P eter To

King Peter, II, of Yugoslavia,

The former ruler has changed
the time of his Ann Arbor talk in
order to return to Europe at an

ance of Walter Piston's "Sonata

INCLUSION OF TiIS number
in the program constitutes a new
experiment in the Forum, giving
the audience an opportunity to
compare the student numbers with
the work of an established modern
composer, Prof. Ross Finney of
the music school explained.
Participating in the Sonata
will be Edward Troupin, violin,
and Delores DiLorenzo, piano.
The opening student composi-
tion will be "Trio for Violin. Viola
and 'Cello" by George Wilson,
'51SM. A work in four move-
ments, the Trio is characterized
by great expression, Prof. Finney
said. It will be performed by An-
drew Lisko, violin, Edward Trou-
pin, viola and Joan Bullen Lewis.
'cello.
SECOND ON THE program will
be "Quintet for Woodwinds by
Frederick Don Truesdell, '50SM.
The work consists of four short
movements. The underlying in-
spiration of the Quintet is Ameri-
can dance music, Prof. Finney ex-
plained.
Playing in the number will be
Carlo Cartaino, flute, Kenneth
Holm, oboe, James Morton, clar-
inet, John Beck, bassoon and
Julia lHarrick, horn.
The final student selection will
be "Quintet for Piano and String
Quartet," a work in three move-
ments by Dean Nuernberger, '50
SM. The first and last movements
are primitive, having strong, bold
rhythm, while the middle, move-
ment is quite lyric, Prof. Finney
commented.
* * *
THE QUINTET will be present-
ed by Larry Owen, first violin,
Andrew Lisko, second violin, Ed-
ward Troupin, viola, Joan Bullen
Lewis, 'cello, and Delores DiLoren-
zo, piano.
Following the concert, a dis-
cussion will be held, during which

the composers.
