Senior class secretary Joan Bee-
man's notebook is well-filled with
the minutes of the meetings of the
literary college senior class offi-
cers and other members of the
board.
These minutes hold a record of
the many activities of the class,
in which Miss Beeman has had-a
helping part.

HER DUTIES as secretary in-
clude sending postcards to senior
members reminding them to at-
tend meetings, being present at all
of them and working on all senior
class functions, as well as taking
minutes at each meeting.
From this she feels that she
"has really accomplished some-
thing."
This year the senior board has
worked to include more students in
senior class activities.
Officers from the other schools
and colleges at the University com-
bined with the literary college
board in presenting the annual
Senior Ball, which was held in
March.

"ORGANIZATION of the senior
class at other colleges and uni-
versities is different than ours,"
Miss Beeman said. They have on-
ly one president over all the vari-
ous schools.
Here each school has a presi-
dent. This makes the committee
bigger but there is more represen-
tation."
However, Miss Beeman has

By NAN REGANALL
An idea of the problems faced
by women on the national political
scene can be gained from a .look
through the eyes of some of the
women who ran for Student Leg-
islature at the recent campus elec-
tions.
Women candidates were amazed
at the disadvantages they encoun-
tered in the elections, but 9,11 is
not dark for they admit that in
some ways this is a woman's world.
* * *
DURING THE campaign, coed
candidates for SL state that they
encountered the attitudes of "it's
nice for women to run for SL"
and "it's cute for a woman to enter
this 'popularity contest' " but very
seldom were they taken seriously.
When giving their platforms
before student groups, some of
the women found that their
main objective had been one of
gaining respect as efficient leg-
islators.
In order to do this, the feeling
that women are merely running
for the sake of getting their pic-
tures and names before the eli-.,
gible males on campus had to be
eliminated.
ACCORCDING TO the women,
men running for SL need only to
prove their efficiency without eli-
minating any such prejudices.
Sue Popkin, '54, one of the
nine women out of a total of 22
elected to SL, states that women
on Student Legislature have the
same disadvantages that they
have anywheremin what is
thought to be a man's world.
Women are thought to be well-

qualified to be secretaries and
committee chairmen, but when
they aspire to any really high
posts, they are not taken serious-
ly.
Ending on a little higher and
more optimistic note, Miss Popkin
concludes that it really isn't so
bad when women can stand around
and direct as the men carry the
heavy boxes, move desks or run
to the other side of town on an
errand.
The weaker sex also found it
to their advantage during cam-
paigning. While the men became
harrassed seeking a printer whose
prices were within reason, women
merely went to any printer, smil-
ed charmingly and walked away
with a gross of posters at whole-
sale price.
In spite of the difficulties and
attitudes encountered by women
Student Legislature candidates,
they aren't discouraged from try-
ing their hand at politics. It can
be an enlightening experience for
both men and women when work-
ing together for common goals of
the student body.

A meeting for all coeds wish-
ing to compete in the all-cam-
pus women's singles tournament

invited to come to obtain a back-
ground in politics which will en-
able them to become intelligent
voters in the future.
Not only is the Voters' League
open to all coeds but it is also
free of any financial burdens such
as weekly dues.
The League of Women Voters
was founded in 1922 by Women
Suffrage Leaders to educate wo-
men in voting procedures. The
member organization consists of
threelevels: local, state and na-
tional.
The primary interest of the Wo-
men's League is in government ac-
tivities such as acting on legis-
lation to be passed and carrying
out laws that have been passed.
Outside projects receive no at-
tention from the League unless
the government is directing the
project.
League Library
Adds New Books
A gift of six new books has been
made by the Blodgett fund to the
League Library.
The books include "Undermining
the Constitution" by Thomas Nor-
ton, "God and Man at Yale" by
William Buckley, "Retgrn of
Adam Smith" by George Mont-
gomery, "Design for War" by Fred
Sanborn and "America's Second
Crusade" by William Chamberlin.
The League Library is regularly
open to coeds who like to study in
a, quiet relaxed atmosphere. The
traditions of making oneself com-
fortable or listening to record con-
certs -makes it a haven for study.
