Best Essay
To Receive
Cash Prize
With $1,000 as first prize, the
Regents of the University are an-
nouncing an essay contest open to
any Michigan student oralumnus.
The first prize and a $500 second
prize are part of a bequest left by
Archibald Broomfield, '02L, who
specified that the annual prize be
awarded for the bes, essays on
"some subject related to good cit-
izenship."
This year's subject is "The Im-
pact Upon Our Civil Liberties of
Our Post-War Struggle with Com-
munism."
The committee believes that
"the prize essay should be one
which carefully considers the re-
cent history of our more important
concepts of individual liberty, and
makes a reasoned assessment of
the practical effect thereon of our
post-war fight against Commu-
nism, at home and abroad."
The committee will accept only
essays prepared specifically for
this contest, and those previously
unpublished. Entrants must agree
that the University shall have ex-
clusive publication rights on all
prize essays.
Essays must not exceed 5,000
words (not including footnotes,
although excessive annotation may
be penalized) and must be submit-
ted on or before Dec. 1, 1955.
-Further instructions and entry
blanks can be obtained from Prof.
Luke K. Cooperrider, 335 Hutchins
Hall.

TIME TO MAKE MOBILES:
Receptionist Says, 'Job Never Dull'
By ARLIS GARON

DAILY
OFFICIAL
BULLETIN

EIEflr

Sitting at the large desk in the
middle of the Administration
Building lobby, receptionist Doro-
thy E. Legg stands out in the midst
of activity.
"Here's the lady who knows all
the answers!" a white haired ma-
tron commented as she approached
the smiling receptionist with a
familiar request for directions.
"I have to know a little about
everything," Mrs. Legg said. "If I
don't have the answer, at least I
know where to find it."
Unusual Requests Common
Unusual requests are very com-
mon in this public relations job.
Mrs. Legg tells of a lady calling to
ask where she could have a Volks-
wagon car serviced. Her question
was answered.
Visitors in Ann Arbor frequently
ask where they can have their hair
done. "I try to be impartial and
give them a list of at least five to
choose from," she said.
Once during the rush of regis-
tration, a coed approached the
blond receptionist with three ques-
tions: "Is that your own hair? How
long is it? and How long has it
been growing?"
Her desk is often a clearing place
for messages and packages. One
day she even kept a cocker spaniel
for someone for an hour.
Knows What to Do
What to do in Ann Arbor would
be no problem to Mrs. Legg as she
frequently imparts information to
visitors, students, and townspeople
about University and Civic func-
tions.
One might say Mrs. Legg "came
with the building." She's had this
job since the Administration

-Daily-John Hirtzel

DOROTHY E. LEGG
... lady with the answers

Building was built five years ago.
She worked for the University and
was asked to serve in this capacity.
Sitting all day in the big lobby
is never boring to Mrs. Legg, al-
though she admitted a restless
person wouldn't like the job. "A
lull never lasts long," she said.

Quiet times are sometimes spent
thinking of designs for decorative
mobiles frequently seen around her
desk. Gaining experience in the
School of Architectlre, she usual-
ly makes mobiles depicting the dif-
ferent seasons and holidays.
Her Christmas mobile showed a
revolving tree with angels and a
candelabra. For Valentine's Day
she had two hearts entwined and
three tiny red hearts each bearing
one word of "I Love You."
Now she is hoping to work up a
St. Patrick's Day mobile. Once she
has her idea, it usually takes only
an hour to make it.
Flowers Brighten Desk
Her desk is characteristically
adorned with flowers. Friends see
that her desk is brightened with
them or else she brings a red rose
or carnation herself.
Mrs. Legg hasn't taken up the
popular campus pastime of knit-
ting. She believes it might be ob-
jectionable to people and would
hinder public relations.
"It's a lot of fun working with
people," she said. Her job some-
times includes acting as "sounding
board" for people's personal prob-
lems. "On a campus as large as
Michigan it sometimes helps to air
a problem to an objective outsid-
er," she remarked.
In all her dealings with people,
Mrs. Legg has never taken a psy-
chology course. "I believe in doing
what comes naturally about peo-
ple," she said. "I have no precon-
ceived ideas."
