PAUL McDONOUGH
McDonough has also been fea-
tured on his own radio show "Piano
Varieties" on WPAG last year and
has received numerous musical of-
fers such as staff pianist for sta-
tion WBBM in Chicago.
BETTY MAGYAR, the vocalist,
had the lead in both the 1952 Soph
Satire and Soph Cabaret. She also
starred in this year's JGP and
was elected to the 1954 J-Hop
Committee.
Other members of the Band
are Mel Campbell, sax and clar-
inet; Bud Cook, trumpet; Art
Stade, drums and Ivan Zahn,
who plays the bass.
According to Marion Charles and
Bud Kilgore, decorations chair-
men, the modern name will set
mood for the dance. Decorations
will feature a wall mural of ab-
stract forms which will be played
up with colors and spotlights.
3D scenery flats will be in the
background. Mobiles - cut out
forms fastened to the ceiling with
wires which change shape and
composition as they swing-will
be hung over the bandstand.
This is the last dance of the
year and a farewell to all the
graduating .seniors. Women will
have 1:30 permission and the
dance is semi-formal. Tickets may
be purchased at the Ad building
for $2.50.
Mosher Tea
Faulty members and all for-
mer residents of Mosher Hall
are invited to attend a formal
tea in honor of Mrs. Frederick
C. Kline, repairing resident di-
rector, from 3 to 5 p.m. today in
the Mosher main living room.

Constitu tion
Student Affairs Group
To Vote On Approval;
Senate Body To Rule
Now that the new League Con-
stitution has been passed subject
only to the approval of the stu-
dent Affairs Committee, Sue Riggs,
new presdient of the Women's or-
ganization, predicts the League
will operate more smoothly in the
future.
Because the new constitution
calls for a senate body which will
have much more power than did
the old Board of Representatives,
Miss Riggs feels that the L'eague
will be brought closer to the wo-
men on campus.
"Under the constitution coeds
will have a larger band in approv-
ing more of the actual League
functions, budgets, appointments
and projects," the organization's
president said.
Another effect of the ratifi-
cation of the constitution will
be a more efficient channeling of
communications. Under the
present setup similar informa-
tion had to be relayed at four
of five different meetings.
Because presidents of all larger
organized women's residences wil
be members of the Senate and
other representatives will sit in
on Assembly, Panhellenic and
League Council meetings, notices
of interest to all women on cam-
pus will be relayed more swiftly
As president of the Women's
League, Sue Riggs will also serve
as chairman of the Women's Sen-
ate. Other Senate officers will b
Nancy Rein, secretary, and a par.
liamentarian and three delegate4
In accordance with the new
constitution the duties of League
vice-president will be enlarged
to include projects chairman.
Major powers of the new Sen,
ate are:
1. To approve the final budget
of the League.
2. To approve all projects in-
itiated by the League.
3. To initiate new rules, regula-
tions and policies.
4. To approve appointment
made by the president.
5. To refer project or question
to the appropriate board,- commit-
tee or organization for study and
solution.

By RITA GEDROVICS
Insight into the university sys-
tem of India was offered by G. L.
Mehta, the Ambassador from In-
dia to the United States, during#
his visit to the University cam-
pus recently.
Generally, women may take the
same courses as men students and
train for the same jobs, he said.
Besides being able to study in
special women's colleges in Bom-
bay and other parts of India, a
great number of women choose to
study in one of the 27 independent
universities. These institutions are
connected to different states and,
in some cases, are partly support-
ed by the Federal government of
India.
After visiting a number of
American universities, mostly in
the Eastern States, the ambas-
sador noted that the main dif-
ference in the college education
of India lies in the professions
for which students prepare.
While American university edu-
cation is quite liberal, students in
India study more technical sub-
jects. 'Mostly they enter fields
like engineering, economics and
science, he said.
Women commonly study educa-
tion and child guidance, although
a number of them also enter pro-
fessions which are primarily for
men, like law and medicine.
Poular activities in which wo-
1 men participate in the universities
are debate, dramatics, and music.

couples," commented Ambassa-
dor Mehta. In India, where the
social functions are somewhat
limited, one can find only folk
dances. Women may dance in
individual groups for recreation
but the ballroom atmosphere is
not at all common in India, he
explained.
The American conception of
dates doesn't prevail there either.
Men and women go out in groups
of five and six, but never alone in
couples. All in all, the social code
is much stricter in India, he said.

dents who want broader know-

Ambassador Mehta added that
of all foreign countries with the'
exception of neighboring countries
like Canada, India has the great-
est number of students in this
country.
Women in India also take an
active role in politics, "Women
played an important part in our
national movement for independ-

Over 15,000 students from India ence," Mehta said.
