THE DUTIES of the board are
to coordinate all the functions of
Assembly and work to keep the
close ties between the independent
and affiliated women on campus.
The activities of Assembly
Association are great in number
and importance.
The president of Assembly is in
charge of residence halls and the
vice-president s u p e r v i s e s all
League houses. Under the lead-
ership of these two officers, As-
sembly Association undertakes to
plan and execute various func-
tions during the course of the
ONE of the main activities of
Assembly which was instituted
only last year is the Big Sister
Program. The project was organ-
ized through the cooperation of
the dormitories to guide incoming
freshmen women through their
scholastic, extra-curricular and
social problems.
Assembly a n d Panhellenic
combine their efforts in Stu-
dent-Faculty Teas, Tag Day and
Frosh Weekend.
Assembly Association also co-
operates with the Michigan Union
in sponsoring the League-Union
THE FIRST scheduled event for
Assmbly in the fall is 'A' Hop un-
der the leadership of the project
chairman. The chairman works
with a committee from A.I.M. and

Phoenix Project fund.
Assembly Ball which takes
place in. March is an important
activity of Assembly Association.
The dance is a coed-bid semi-
formal and the central- commit-
tee for the event is chosen at
the end of December.
Another function of Assembly
Association is to organize the proj-
ect known as Assembly Fortnight.
This activity serves as a recogni-
tion night for independent houses
and independent women.
One of the newest projects of
Assembly Association is the

sociation. She also records the ac-
tivities of all members.
secretary, has as her job the hand-
ling of all correspondence. She
takes the minutes of the meetings,
and is in charge of the eligibility
lists required by the Dean's office.
Rushing secretary Nancy
Clark's job is the most concen-
trated of any on the Board. She
presides over rushing meetings,
which begin in early fal and
end after the rushing period is
over in February.
Although most of her planning is
done before the actual rushing sea-
son, she and her assistant, Beverly
Clark, have their most difficult
work during the two weeks of
MARY HELEN KING, treasurer
of the Board, compiles the bud-
gets submitted to her, collects and
deposits house dues, and is re-
sponsible for the Panhellenic sec-
tion of the League Low-Down.
Three members of each sorori-
ty constitute the membership of
the association. One is the presi-
dent of the house, and the other
two are a sophomore and junior
delegate elected by the house.
Panhel sponsors such projects
as the Student Faculty Hours,
Fresh Air Camp, and their newest,
Panhel Workshop. The last is at-
tended by members of each sorori-
ty once a year, when the coeds
discuss frankly the difficulties and
problems which have arisen in
their respective houses.
* * *
FROSH WEEKEND, only three
years old, is sponsored by Panhel
with the purpose of acquainting
freshmen women with the work-
ings of the League and of giving
them a start in women's activities
Recognition Night I also a
project of the association. Held
in the spring each year, the
event offers the opportunity of
honoring coeds who have worked
in activities all year.
In connection with the organiza-
tion of rushing, the newest project
of Panhel is the Counseling system.
Started two years ago, the system
has received the plaudits of the
Board, and of all the members of
the association.
* * *
CONSISTING of ten members
chosen by their respective sorori-
ties each year, the system offers
information and aid for rushees.
The members are not affiliat-
ed with their houses, but wear
instead the Panhellenic Counsel-
ors pin while they are connected
with the Board.
The aim of the system is to in-
crease the number of rushees who
pledge sororities, and to try to
straighten out their confusion
while they are rushing.
* * .
SINCE under the honor system
adopted by Panhel, the rushees
are not allowed to contact the
sororities, the counselors work as
middle-men between the two in
order to guide the rushees to the
house of their choice.
Junior Panhellenic works in
direct connection with the
Board. Originated just three
years ago, the group is com-
posed of the presidents of the
pledge classes, and holds weekly
With its purpose to acquaint the
sorority pledges with the activities
of Panhel, and to promote coopera-
tion and friendship among the
pledges, Junior Panhel had as its
project last year a picnic at the
University Fresh Air Camp.

League Offers
Dance Class
If anyone ever wanted to learn
to fox trot, waltz, rumba, tango
or mombo, the League dance
classes would be one place where
they could.
Last semester four classes a
week for an eight week period
were held under the direction of
Edward Fusco, an Arthur Murray
instructor from Detroit.
TWO OF THESE classes were
for general groups who either
wanted to learn new steps or im-
prove their old ones.
Exceptional dancers w e r e
picked from these classes to par-
ticipate in the exhibition dance
Last semester ten couples per-
formed in this class at such events
