Of Petitioning and Interviewing for Offices

Petitioning for W AA Positions
To End; Interviews Will Begin
Many Available Jobs Include Membership
On Executive Board, Managerships of Clubs

(Editor's Note-This is the first in
a series of articles on petitioning for
League Positions.)
T h e process f o r obtaining
League jobs of all kinds is through
petitioning to and interviewing in
front of the interviewing and
nominating committee of the
The first step in writing a peti-
tion is to find out all the duties
involved in the job. These are
listed in the League Lowdown and
in the Presidents' Reports. Fur-
ther information may be obtained
from the person now holding the
position or from any member of

chairman of interviewing and no-
minating committee, "Perhaps the
best source of information con-
cerning any League position is
the .Presidents' Reports."
Every person who has ever

held a League position has
written a report at the end of
her term, explaining what she
has done during the year and
giving any suggestions for im-
provement which she may con-
sider important.
After becoming thoroughly fa-
miliar with the job she would like
to have, the petitioner should
think of any improvements which
she would make if chosen for the

AFTER THIS information has
been written in rough draft form,
the copy to be turned-in may be
typed. The first page of every
petition consists of a standard
form which may be picked-up at
the Undergraduate Office of the
League any time during petition-
This form provides space for
the name, class, grade-point

average and former activities of
the petitioner. The rest of the
petition consists of a listing of
the duties of the office involved,
suggested improvements and
constructive criticism.
The body of the petition may
be in either outline form or writ-
ten out. The important point, is
that it should convey, as clearly
and concisely as possible, the
meaning and intentions of the
mitted to the interviewing and
nominating committee, the peti-
tioner should sign up for an inter-
During an interview, the pe-
titioner is asked to tell the du-
ties of the office, what improve-
ments she would inaugurate (if
any) and if she has any con-
structive criticism to offer.
The interview follows the same
pattern as the petition. If the
committee feels that any points
in the petition have not been ex-
plained enough they will ask
questions on those points.

thing, though," said one member
of the committee. "If the inter-
viewee wants to explain more
thoroughly what she said in her
petition, add more information or
clarify her opinions, she should
feel free to do so."
The important thing to re-
member about the interview,
say members of the interview-
ing commtitee, is that the com-
mittee members are just talking
to the interviewee to find out
her opinions and views.
"If you know the duties of your
job and what you would like to
see done in it, there is no reason
to be nervous during an inter-
view," said Miss Breon.
Senior, junior, sophomore and
freshman positions are announced
during Installation Night, which
will be held in May this year.
Senior petitioning is now com-
pleted and petitioning for junior
positions by sophomore women
