Music-Makers Pleased
By Audience Reaction
"After the ball was over" the
band leader went to breakfast.
In the wee small hours of last
Sunday morning, after he had
packed away his baton, Freddy
Martin, with Merv Griffin, ap-
peared at the Tau Kappa Epsilon
house for breakfast.
Alumni of TKE, the versatile
bandleader and his vocalist felt
very much at home there. They
chatted with the drowsy couples
and obligingly signed autographs
and posed for pictures.
Plied with questions about mu-
sic-making, Martin outlined his
current road tour and gave facts
about his band. He said that he'
was very pleased with the audi-
ence reaction at J-Hop and that
he had enjoyed playing here at
Michigan very much.
After breakfast Martin and'
Griffin dashed off to catch a bus
to Cleveland on the next lap of
their tour.

What with finals, J-Hop week-
end, rushing and now the begin-
ning of a new semester, students
don't seem to have much time or
energy left for social events this
weekend.
ATOs are convinced, however,
that "Joyful Living" is the thing
to do, for they are holding their
pledge formal with this theme to-
morrow night. There will be a
dinner at the house for members
and their dates followed by a
dance.

"FOR HE'S A JOLLY GOOD
FELLOW" will ring through the
Phi Delta Phi house tomorrow
night when the fraternity holds
a record dance in honor of its'
outgoing social chairman, S. Nol
Melvil.

THE LAWYERS CLUB will
hold court this weekend with its
monthly "Assises," (an old Eng-
glish term for court). The bar- i
risters will plead their case to
popular record music, after which
they will await the verdict over
"hot refreshments" of coke and
cheese.

THE WELCOME MAT will be

students at the Alpha Rho Chi

I

WOMEN MAY take any course
and attend any class with Crim-I
son men, and their degrees are1
the equivalent of Harvard de-
grees.
Having suffered for years
from criticism and indignities
by Harvard's famed newspa-
per, "The Crimson," Radcliffe
is now boasting about its un-
paralled victory in educational
history. It has Just won a 71-
year fight to give women a Har-
vard education.
The campaign started back in
1879, when the coeds decided to
invade the holy precincts of all-
male Harvard, and the struggle
continued for years before the
first ground was gained.
* * *
IN THE beginning, 'Cliffe wo-
men were dependent upon the
willingness of Harvard professors
to teach courses in Radcliffe
classrooms.
The situation became rather
humorous when Harvard pro-
fessors would deliver their lec-
ture to Harvard men; then
sprint across the Commons on
their bicycles to repeat the
same lecture to a group of wo-
men.
When the professors decided

was accepted to full joint instruc-
tion. Boston newspapers buried
war stories to headline r "Harvard
Goes Coeducational."
To prevent hysteria among
the 11,000 Crimson men, the ar-
rangement was explained as a
"war measure." But the ar-
rangement worked so smoothly
in the years to follow that a re-
turn to the pre-war situation
was vetoed in 1947.
A student's guide to Radcliffe
College containing rules of femi-
nine decorum is presented to in-
coming freshmen each year. Cer-
tain rules for behavior at Harvard
must not be broken-no slacks, no
shorts, no blue jeans, no sprawl-
ing on steps and no smoking in
any Harvard building or bicycle
riding in the Harvard Yard.
I H I S COEDUCATIONAL ar-
rangement has worked in more
ways than merely participating in
Harvard's intellectual activities.
A survey of Radcliffe this
year revealed that 10 per cent
of the coeds are married-more
than 50 per cent of them to
Harvard men.
The "different flavor" of the
school attracts women from every
walk of life.

LYDIA MENDELSSOHN THEATRE

By MARY JANE MILLS
Bewildered freshmen women
are being guided by one of the
Assembly Association's newest
committees-the Big Sister Com-
mittee.
This committee is composed of
one chairman from each of the
women's dorms and enough girls
working with the chairman so
that every girl has charge of one
to three freshmen women.
Even before the new frosh ar-
rive on campus the Big Sisters
contact their Little Sisters by
letter to let them know that there
will be at least one friend waiting
for them when they arrive at
Michigan.
ORIENTATION WEEK starts a
whirl of activities. In the larger
dorms, the Big Sisters give a
party for their Little Sisters so
that the freshmen can become ac-
quainted.
Friendly advice is passed on
to each Little Sister such as
what to wear to class or to a
fraternity party and tips on col-
lege etiquette and social con-
duct.
