WAA Clubs Offer
Coeds Relaxation
Coeds who have found time to
relax from studying, and would
like to participate in some kind of
athletics, still have a variety from
which to choose.
WAA clubs that are still open
for membership, include the Diving
Club meeting at 5:10 p.m. Mondays
at the pool, Riding Club at 7:15
p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at
the WAB, Badminton Club at 7:15
p.m. Wednesdays at Barbour Gym,
and Fencing Club at 4:20 p.m.
Tuesdays and Thursdays at Bar-
bour. Some experience is needed
for the Fencing Club.
For those women interested in
swimming, there is a class at 8:15
p.m. Tuesdays for upperclassmen.
Lessons will continue for five
weeks. Also available is the Speed
Swimming Club meeting at 5:10
p.m. Thursdays.
Recreational swimming is at
5:10 p.m. Monday through Fri-
day, 7:15 p.m. Mondays, 8:15 p.m.

felt she must give up the office to
concentrate on her studies.
How does Barbara feel about
leading the group until Installa-
tion Night? "I'm proud to be in
office and I want to do as well as
I can, but most of the work has
been set up. I have Jean's pattern
to follow."
But following this pattern is a
big responsibility. Barb will su-
pervise elections for new Panhel-
lenic officers. Under a different
set-up, the president will be elect-
ed by a house vote, instead of by
Panhellenic Board, thus allowing
every sorority girl to vote.
Also on the agenda while Barb
heads the group is a revision of
the Panhellenic Constitution and
the biggest project of all, Greek
Week. For the coming all-campus
elections, Barb and her affiliated
coeds will provide 297 hours of

dent, a junior board member, Miss
Ethel McCormick and Barbara will

Convention, this year at Ohio
In carrying out these established
plans, the coed from Ironton, O.
will have lots to do.
Plus her extra-curricular lead-
ership, Barbara has maintained
above a 3.4 scholastic average. Her
freshman and sophomore years
were spent at Ohio University be-
fore she went to Washington, D.C.
In the capital, Barb took courses
at George Washington University
while working for the FBI as a
Practice Teacher
A fine arts major, she is now
practice teaching at Saline where
most of her junior and senior boys
tower over their petite teacher.
Presently one of Barb's inter-
ests is the colonization of the new
sorority, Eskasia.
"I'm so happy about the new
group and I hope that they will
soon be a chapter in a national
Panhellenic sorority. I feel confi-
dent that this won't be too far
away because, not only will a na-
tional want to get this marvelous
group of girls, but also to become
active on Michigan's campus.
It is with this enthusiasm that

IN THE DARK about which cigarette to

above, titled: Two searchlight crews, one

Luckies. Your search is over when you
light up a Lucky. You'll find out why col-
lege sm.kers prefer Luckies to all other
brands, as shown by the latest, greatest
college survey. Once again, the No. 1
reason: Luckies taste better. They taste
better, first of all, because Lucky Strike
means fine tobacco. Then, that tobacco is
toasted to taste better. "'It'sToasted"-
the famous Lucky Strike process-tones
up Luckies' light, good-tasting tobacco
to make it taste even better ... cleaner,
fresher, smoother. So, enjoy the better-
