Campus To Stress Good Will

"League merit-tutorial's long
used acid often bemoaned point-
system of rewarding participants
in various activities is no more,"
said Marian Larson, head of
The former system was discard-
ed on two. counts. First, and fore-
most according to the committee,
it did not reward people accurate-
Wr because it was impossible to
evaluate ability in terms of points
in many cases.
Further, decided the committee,
the entire method of reward cre-
ated wrong incentives and the re-,
sult was often a lack of interest in
the jobs being performed.
Activity records now merely
consist of the list of activities
with no points given. These rec-

day, Wednesday and, Friday, and
from 1 to 3 p.m. on Thursday.

At least so seems to be the opin-

The Daily women's staff. After
spending nine school months
working with a staff of fifteen
women and living in a strictly
collegiate world where men are
usually garbed in the most casual
of all ensembles, she received a
shock when she found herself en-
gulfed by fifteen men who fully
believed in thepolicy of haircuts
and shoe shines.
MISS JAMES spent the summer

of filing cabinets, typewriters and
a group of male co-workers who
hadn't had a woman in the midst

Language which apparently
had gone unrestrained for a
period of years suddenly be-
came almost as refined as a
ladies sewing circle, she noted.
When she first invaded this
strictly masculine kingdom, Miss
James found office equipment
which resmbled that which must
have accompanied Noah on his
ark. Never-doubt the power of a
woman, though, a new typewriter
and chair were promptly moved in

PHONE CALLS provided Miss
James with an endless source of
amusement. Many and varied
were the flabbergasted replies she
received, especially when the boss'
wife called one day.
When it came time for her co-
workers to select bowling shirts,
a woman's consultation was im-
mediately requested. Miss James
succeeded, by employing diplo-
matic tactics, in getting the mem-
bers of the stronger sex to tone
down their selections from char-
treuse and scarlet to maroon and
For Interested Tutors

opening registration for those in-
terested in tutoring this year.
