League Room
To Undergo
University Ballroom
To Feature Spotlights,
New Portable Stage
Under the auspices of the League
Board of Governors, the much-
used League Ballroom will be re-
modeled, starting June 28, at the
approximate cost of $15,000.
The ballroom, which has been
the scene of numerous campus
dances for many years, will un-
dergo a "face-lifting" during the
summer. It is hoped that construc-
tion will be completed by the
opening of school in the fall.
New features in the ballroom
will include a "flush lighting"
system with built-in spotlights
for special occasions, new drap-
eries, a modern paint job, wall
paneling, new furniture and a
portable stage.
The movable stage, an added
feature in many modern ballrooms
and theaters, will give the room
more versatility, with an eye to
dances, dinners and conferences.
Mrs. Herbert F. Taggart, head
of the League Board of Governors,
will be in charge of the project,
assisted by Mrs. Edith M. Wheeler,
business manager of the League
and the rest of the committee.
Other recent re-modeling in
the League includes the Bar-
bara Little Listening Rooms, on
the third floor across from the
League Library; the Rumpus
Room in the basement; cafeteria
and the Undergraduate Offices
on the first floor.
The re-modeling of the ballroom
will be followed in future arti-
cles in The Daily. "The rejuve-
nated ballroom should be a great
asset to the League and its varied
activities," according to the com-

GOLDMAN organized the now
famous Goldman band in 1912
with the idea that a band could
play as artistically as a symphony
Entering their 37th season the
Goldman Band's concerts on the
Mall in Central Park, New York,
were begun in 1918. The con-
certs, which are given six nights
a week, are held in Prospect
Park in Brooklyn one night out
of each week.
Included in the collection which
Goldman is giving to the Univer-

Caps and gowns of the academ-
ic world may be cast aside upon
graduation, but the ideals they
symbolize can continue throughout
One organization devoted to the
continuance of such academic
ideals is the American Association
of University Women, composed of
women college graduates interest-
ed in practical educational work.
BEGINNING today six repre-
sentatives of the Recent Graduate
Study Groups will visit league
houses, dormitories and sororities
to acquaint graduating senior
women with AAUW.
A five minute talk will be given
at each residence and as many
of them will be visited as time
Founded in 1882, AAUW devotes
its efforts to education, wider op-
portunities for women, interna-
tional understanding and cooper-
ation, and application of the train-
ing and abilities of college women
to the complex problems of modern

ORIGINALLY composed of 17
women, representing eight col-
leges, AAUW now numbers over
122,000 members in its 1,221 local
branches. These branches are di-
vided among 48 states, Hawaii and

and the Ann Arbor group has a
membership of approximately 500.
Membership in AAUW is open
to any woman holding an ap-
proved degree from an institu-
tion included on the AAUW list.
Such an institution, to be ap-
proved, must meet such regula-
tions as good academic stand-
ards, adequate provision for
women students, recognition of
women on the faculty and in

administration and a good foun-
dation for general education.
The approved degrees must in-

topics in general areas as well as

wrote "racial discrimination is but a weak
structure that was feared mainly because
of its influence in the past and once the
youth of the different races met and under-
stood each other it was doomed to fall." As
a sophisticated sophomore I wrote "to the
youth the race problem is more complex than
difficult." The way the campus has reacted
to the N.A.A.C.P., the support we have re-
ceived from S.L. and The Daily, and the
way the campus has reacted to the league
house discrimination, has justified my faith
in the youth. It is evident to me that the
younger generation does not want racial dis-
crimination. I think we are capable and are
ready to accept each person as an individual
and to judge them not by the color of their
skin or the slant of their eyes but by their
own individual merit. To further this atti-
tude I believe is the main purpose of the
N.A.A.C.P. The local chapter has tried to
aid this cause on both the national and local
level. On the national level we have con-
tributed more than $100 to the national
treasury. On the local level we have taken
significant steps toward solving several prob-
lems. In an effort to eliminate discrimina-
tion among businessmen in Ann Arbor we
have started a sticker campaign. The majority
of the businessmen are cooperating with us.
Next semester we hope to set up an employ-
ment committee which will periodically visit
those businessmen who still discriminate and
try to persuade them to cooperate with us.
We have sponsored a lecture series. From
the series we have learned the best way to
eliminate discrimination and predujice is to
integrate the races. We have recommended
that the administration abolish the photo
requirement from the room application form

members of different races can and have lived
and worked together in harmony and should
not be separated. On our side we have science.
On their side they have the power to make
the decision. Prof. Dawson told us that the
personnel of the administration is honest.
If this is so they are opposed to us only be-
cause they hold an erroneous opinion. Then
I think we are obligated to educate our eld-
ers. We can send committees to talk to them.
We can do more. By giving inter-racial func-
tions, e.g. mixers and panel discussions,
and by operating an effective inter-racial
N.A.A.C.P., we can give them a living dem-
onstration of inter-racial cooperation. This
might make them more inclined to change
their housing policy.
We have objected to the float, Uncle Tom's
Cabin, as an excavation of a stereotype. We
have succeeded in making it plain that we
didn't like this type of float. In this area
we can take more positive steps. We can
make it unlikely that we will have to object
to the stereotype by presenting as many
phases of Negro life before the public as
possible. We can investigate the possibilities
of getting a Negro History course on the cur-
riculum. We plan to present several national-
ly-known Negro leaders, e.g., Walter White,
Thurgood Marshall and Dr. Ralph Bunche;
we can try to persuade the Cinema Guild to
get movies like "Home of Brave," "Lost
Bountaries" and "Lydia Bailey."
When I think of the handful of people we
started with and of our present 53 members,
I am inclined to say we have taken "A
Giant Step." If, when we return next fall,
we work diligently and make this an effec-
tive organization, then we will give the ad-
