'Miss Mac' Guides Activities as League Social Director
By RITA GEDROVICS
Nucleus of women's extra-curric-
ular activities on campus, the
Michigan League, provides many
outlets for coeds' interests and of-
fers opportunities to meet people
and make new friends.
Freshmen and transfer students
who want to get into the spirit of
campus life may get acquainted
with the League and its functions
by meeting the Social Director,
Miss Ethel A. McCormick.
Better known as "Miss Mac,"
she is supervisor of the League ac-
tivities and is always willing to
offer guidance and help to women
In her opinion, the best way to
get started is to get to know all
the League facilities.
The Round-Up and Rumpus
Rooms are the places to go for
relaxation with a juke box, dance
floor, card tables, television, and
a ping pong table.
The library and listening rooms
and study hall provide quiet places
for reading or just everyday study-
Miss Mac advises all women to
come to League Night which will
take place during orientation week
and thus get a start in the activ-
On that night all freshman
women will draw for teams for
Frosh Weekend, which is the main
event for first-year women. As it
has become a tradition, the Maize
and Blue teams each present a
dance which is judged for deco-
rations, programs, and floorshow.
Although the shows take place
in the spring, second-semester
freshmen may also participate in
the drawing for teams.
The two teams from last year
will each present their floor-show
on League Night. Other skits will
also be presented and the coeds
will have a chance to tour the
After that, the women may start
working on committees. The first
important work they can partici-
pate in is to help with the decora-
tions for I-Hop, the first all-cam-
pus fall dance sponsored by As-
sembly Association, one of the
many League groups.
The League dance classes are
another important function. Coeds
may sign up to be hostesses in
couples classes or just learn new
steps in the singles classes. Also
as Miss Mac says, "It is a good
way to meet boys."
Music-minded women may join
the Women's Glee Club, an asso-
ciated League activity. The activi-
ties of the club include concerts,
radio programs and tours. .
The League is also known for its
community activities. All fresh-
man women who like to do civic
work, will probably want to join
t he service group, The work of
these coeds usually consists of
volunteer work in the University
Hospital or speech clinic.
Although the activities are var-
ied and very appealing, Miss Mac
advises all women to "Be sure and
start studying immediately." Thus,
they will not be caught short at
the end of the semester.
Those coeds who may find trou-
ble in their studies, however, may
seek help from the Merit-Tutorial
Committee of the League. As the
name implies, this committee pro-
vides tutoring services at minimum
fees throughout the semester.
For women who possess interest
In writing, Miss Mac gives the ad-
vice to start as a tryout on The
Daily women's staff. The "staffers"
keep in close touch with all social
events and League activities, as
well as cover other campus orga-
"Make sure you go to meet Pres-
ident Hatcher and his family at
the teas," is another suggestion
Miss Mac makes to incoming stu-
Other important events which
students may attend during the
coming year are the lecture and
concert series. Tickets to these
events featuring famous persons
may be purchased at the begin-
ning of the semester. According to
Miss Mac, these series are "the
best in the country."
Miss Mac likes to see coeds who
are interested in extra-curricular
activities and thinks that it is
very important for everybody to
take advantage of all opportuni-
ties to go out for activities. How-
ever, she advises everybody,
"Don't take on top much." After
all, studies should come first and
many have been known to fail in
courses because they were too ab-
sorbed in other activities.
All freshman women will be, is-
sued a little booklet, called the
"League Lowdown," which will pro-
vide any information wanted about
the League, its associated organi-
zations and their activities.
