ship of these two officers, Assem-
bly Board supervises various func-

ASSEMBLY conducts bi-month-
ly meetings, attended by house
presidents, where campus activi-
ties and house problems are dis-
Under the supervision of As-
sembly Board such activities are
executed as "A" Hop, Assembly
Ball and Assembly Fortnight.
"A" Hop, the first scheduled
event for Assembly in the fall, is
under the leadership of the proj-
ect chairman. Assembly Ball is
the annual Assembly coed-bid
semi-formal dance which takes
place in Marchi
ANOTHER FUNCTION of As-
sembly is to organize Assembly
Fortnight which serves as recog-
nition night for independent wo-
men and houses.
Panhellenic and Assembly co-
operate in sponsoring such
events as Tag Day, Frosh Week-
end and Student-Faculty Teas.
Assembly also joins forces with
the Union in the League-Union
Instituted only last year was
Assembly's project, te Big Sister
Program, organized through the
cooperation of the dormitories to
guide incoming freshmen women
through their scholastic, extra-
curricular and social problems.

Displaced Student Fund.
Every woman in the Univer-
sity who lives in a dormitory,
League house or private home
is automatically a member of
Assembly Association and is eli-
gible to petition for an Assem-

Development of leadership abil-
ity and satisfaction in the job
accomplished are the rewards to
be gained by independent women
who serve on Assembly Board.

Leap Year May Be of Benefit
To Large Femhinine Majority
By JO KETELHUT
The legends connected with
Leap Year may prove to be actu-
alities in 1960!
For there are now nearly a
million and one-half more women
in the United States than there
are men-and there may be over
two and one-half million more
women than men by 1960.
* * *
THIS IS a prediction of popu-
lation experts despite the fact that
there are still around 106 boy
babies being born in this country
for every 100 girl babies.
For reasons which are not
entirely understood, women are.
living measurably longer lives
than men, and the difference
today is considerably Inore than
50 or even 25 years ago.
At birth today, women have a
life expectancy of around five
years longer than men. At every
age and for almost every disease
and kind of accident, the death
rate is lower for women. It is
much lower for accidents, tuber-
culosis; heart disease, pneumonia,
and a little lower for cancer.

FIRST RETURNS from the
1950 United States Census on
population by sex have confirmed
earlier estimates that during the
1940's, women in this country be-
gan to outnumber men for the
first time in the nation's history.

Medical authorities and popu-

extent why women live longer

men and take more sensible care

DIFFERENCES in length of life
between the two sexes exist in
every country in the world except
where the death rate resulting
from child-birth is very high.
The fact that many more men
than women die of accidents
present a problem which is dif-
ficult to explain. Among adults,
it can perhaps be explained by
the different activities of men
and women, but it is not so
easy to understand why the dif-
ference exists among children
under two years of age and
even among children under one
year of age.
There may simply be a greater
spirit of adventure among males,

that this may have more effect
on men than on women. In
this case, the life expectancies
of men and women will be more
