Present WAA Office Holders
Offer Information to Petitioners
Treasurer Holds Lease on Purse Strings;
Participation Manager Credits Sport Points

Among the 'positions open to
petitioners this spring are those
of treasurerhand participation
manager of the Women's Athletic
Association.
TREASURER
As treasurer this year Barbara
Simmons keeps an eye on every
penny that is brought in or taken
out of the Association's treasury.
WAA spends money on parties,
publicity, pictures, and many proj-
ects during the year. The treas-
urer's duty is to approve all such
expenditures and to keep track of
the money that the WAA earns.j

'f

ONE OF THE most important
duties of the treasurer is to clear-
ly explain the requisition system
which is used by all club mana-
gers and board members in mak-
ing purchases. She must stress
the procedure and importance of
requisitioning so thpt records can
be efficiently kept:
One of the most difficult parts
of the job is to keep the books
and see that they balance each
month.
The treasurer keeps a record of
the monthly balance, all expendi-
tures, and receipts with her so
that she can always keep the clubs
informed of the money on hand.
It is important at the beginning
of the year to stress to the treas-
irers of each club that no money
is ever paid outright, but that
everything is charged.
As treasurer, Miss Simmons
takes an active part at all board
meetings and works on the vari-
ous WAA projects and activities.
PARTICIPATION MANAGER
Another member of the execu-
tive board is the participation
manager.
In this position, Mary Peterson
keeps track of all coeds who are
earning participation points for
their houses.
* * *
POINTS ARE AWARDED to a
house for every member who en-'
ters WAA sponsored clubs and{
tournaments. One point is'given

for each participant in tourna-
ments providing she continues
playing until defeated.
For club membership, a coed
earns five points as well as
credit for a sport participation.
She must attend three-fourths
of all the meetings. If she re-
joins the same club the second
semester, she receives five more
points.
Each player on an intramural
team must play at least twice to
gain credit for the sport. If a
team defaults or switches mem-
bers of one team to another, each
person on the team loses both
credit for sports participation and
points.
* * *
TO BE ELIGIBLE for the par-
ticipation cup, a house must have
100% participation, meaning that
each coed must have participated
in two sports over a year's time.
In the case of large dormitories,
they must have 60% participation
for eligibility.
This, however, excludes wo-
men who have a, medical excuse
from the health service.
A greater accumulation of points
can be accomplished by winning
or placing in the intramurals.
* * *
FIRST PLACE carries the award
of 50 activity points for the house;
second place means 25 points and
third place winners gain 15 points.
T h e participation cup is
awarded to the winning dormi-
tory, league house, or sorority
on Lantern Night in May.
"Although this job hay seem
like a lot of busy-work, it is one
which cap be efficiently handled
in spare moments and doesn't
havedto be finished until May,"
stated Miss Peterson.
Besides the record keeping du-
ties, Miss Peterson is active on the
WAA Board and participates in
other phases of the WAA pro-
gram.

ON THIE IHIOUSE
By NAN TAYLOR
The springy days which Ann Arbor has been experiencing this
week seem to have put everybody in the party spirit for this weekend.
* * * *
STARTING OFF the festivities Helen Newberry Dormitory will
hold a pre-Assembly Ball party. Residents of Betsy Barbour and their
dates for the dance have been invited to the party, and Miss Ethel
McCormick of the League Undergraduate Office has been invited as
guest of honor.
* * * *
FORMALS WILL ALSO WHIRL at Alice Lloyd Hall, which is
holding a "punch-tail" party for its women and their escorts who
are attending Assembly Ball.
* * * *
"GO WEST YOUNG MAN" will echo through the Tri-Delt house
tonight when the sorority presents its traditional western party in
honor of its new pledges. Blue jeans and plaid shirts will set the
western mood.
* * * *
BLUE JEANS, will also be featured at the Phi Delt party. Over
the hay-strewn floor, couples will "swing their partner" in a good old-
fashioned square dance.
ADAMS HOUSE MEN and their dates will dance to the music of
Tommy Dorsey and Ralph Flanagan (on records), and gamble in the
"Las Vegas" casino at their party tomorrow night.
* * * *
"BUDDY, CAN YA SPARE A DIME" will be the cry of ATOs and
their dates when they enter the "dilapidated" and "destitute" fra-
ternity house tomorrow evening. The poverty-stricken theme will
be carried out in the old clothes worn, in cardboard over the windows
and glaring light bulbs.
SPIN-THE-BOTTLE, pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey and blind man's
buff will help couples at Delta Chi celebrate "Happy Birthday to all
the kiddies." The oldsters who find themselves too stiff in the joints
for such games will be provided with a room for dancing and other
more adult activities.
LAMDA CHI ALPHA will hold a "pledge debut" tomorrow eve-
ning for its new initiates. Pledge paddles, pledge manuals, beanies
and beer mugs (empty, of course) will set the mood.
AN EERIE CEMETERY SCENE, complete with tombstones and
ghosts will haunt couples tomorrow night at the Vaughan House
"Graveyard Shuffle." Blue jeans and "ghostly" white shirts will com-
plete the spirit.
* * * *
CHICAGO HOUSE MEN and their dates will gamble and dance
away tomorrow evening on "Bowery Lane."
* * * *
AFTER THE EXCITEMENT of the hockey game, Phi Delta Phi
couples will go to the fraternity house for coffee and donuts.
* * * *
ZETA PSI will hold a housewarming tomorrow night in honor of
its going off social pro. Couples will dance to the music of Art King's
Combo.
HUGH JACKSON and his orchestra will play for Theta Chis and
their dates at the party to honor the new fraternity pledges.

held by Alpha Kappa Kappa, Beta Theta Pi, Chi Phi, Delta Tau Delta,
Alpha Delta Phi, Kappa Nu, Phi Sigma Kappa, Sigma Alpha Epsilon,
Sigma Nu, Tau Delta Phi, Phi Alpha Kappa, Theta Xi and Strauss
House.
