Fiber Personality Defies Stereotype

Known to almost five out of ev-
ery ten students who cross the
Diag, Lee Fiber, with her man-tai-
lored shirts, white gym shoes, and
wind-blown hair, nas managed to
remain most unlike the tradition-
al campus personality throughout
her four-year Michigan sojourn.
Described by her friends as "in-
tense, curious and usally iate for
dinner," the retiring head of Joint
Judiciary Council has a unique
casual manner that carries over
into all her relations.
She goes into a project lock,
stock and barrel, and she doesn't
stop until she's given it every-
thing she has. After becoming in-
terested in something, she has to
know all about it, but still feels
that she has "an awful lot to
Political Activities
For awhile Lee became inter-
ested in campus political groups
and went to a different meeting
almost every night. Students for
Democratic Action, Society for
Peaceful Alternatives, Young Pro-
gressives-she sampled them al, to
see what they were like.
A new idea, new person, and Lee

specific sin over which the god has

thusiasm that usually has con-
structive results. People have a
contagious effect on her, and she
develops a strong sense of respon-.
sibility toward them.
But the partciular Fiber charm
is her carefree manner. "It's a kind
of disorganized organization,' one
of her friends has said. She rat-
tles around campus on a bike with
no brakes, and has been known to
leave it around and then spend
helf a day looking for it.
Joint Judic has Sobering Affect
Joint Judiciary Council, which
she has headed for a year, has
had a sobering effect on her. But
she still carries around a manila
folder with all sorts of odd news-
paper clippings, and writes notes
to herself because she can't re-
member things.
This unusual blend of responsi-
bility and disorganization makes
Lee easy to know. Friendly with-
out being forced, and sincere with-
out being stuffy, she knows people
in all parts of the University. Her
acquaintances range from faculty
to freshmen; and yet none of them
Ling'uistics Talks
The Linguistics Club will meet
at 7:30 p.m. today in Room 3B of
the Union.
"A Linguistic Perspective in a

linguistics department, and Helen
Weaver, Grad., will speak on

are just acquaintances.
She will drop in on a faculty
member because she wants to talk
about something, or just strike up
a conversation with someone that
seems unusual.
Called Idealistic
The Detroit Pi Phi classifies her-
self as a conservative liberal, but
others would take objection. "She's
extremely idealistic," a teacher of
hers once said, "I hope she doesn't
lose it.'
The first girl to head the Joint
Judiciary Council also has a vari-
ety of other activities behind her.

Not to be neglected in any list
of Lee's activities are the piano les-
sons she gives. People who don't
know her well are inclined to be
believe that she must be twins-
one girl couldn't do all that.
Next year she plans to be at the
University of Strasbourg, France,'
on a Rotary Fellowship, one of the
few girls chosen against stiff com-'
petition. She is going to study, but
just as she always has, Lee also
wants to find out about people.
Girls who have been in her ori-
entation groups, students who have
worked with her in the Student
Legislature, and even offenders
who have appeared before. Joint
Judic all agree that Elise Fiber is
an unusual girl.
SL Agenda
The Student Legislature will
hold their final meeting of the
semester tonight at 7:30 p.m.
in the Strauss Dining Room,
East Quadrangle.
The agenda will include:
Development Council Report

Motion to appropriate $500
for NSA delegation expenses.
Motion to endorse NAACP
