Who will help
Gabriella is six, the oldest of three
children. She never slept in a bed. She
goes to school because she gets one
t 'i:?4 .'? :":# Tfi.;: '.... free meal a day. She has no others.
She never owned a toy. Home is a hut,
9x12. The walls are of cardboard in
spots where the logs have rotted away.
The floor is earthen . .. there are no
facilities. Gabriella's parents survived
the war in Italy, but now there is no
employment. Their . hearts are torn,
w . . . for they cannot help their child . .
not even comb her hair ... they do
not own a comb. Gabriella's hunger is
unappeased, her misery deep. She can.
not smile. Help to this family means
hope instead of despair .';. a chance
to live . a bulwarkagainst destrue
tive ideologies. Won't you help her
and her weary parents or other dis-
tressed children . . . many without
one or both parents? They look to
) ~.you who can actively participate in
establishing world understanding.
Will You, Your School, Your Class, Your Club or Group
Adopt a Distressed Child Like Gabriella for One Year?
You alone, or as a member of a group, can help these children by becoming
a Foster Parent. You will be sent the case history and photograph of "your"
child upon receipt of application with initial payment. "Your" ;child is told
that you are his or her Foster Parent. All correspondence is through our of-
fice, and is translated and encouraged. We do no mass relief. Each child,
treated as an individual, receives food, clothiag, shelter, education and medical
care according to his or her needs.
The Plan is a non-political, non-profit, non-sectarian, independent, government.
approved relief organization, helping children, wherever the need, in England,
France, Belgium, Italy, Holland, Greece, Western Germany and Korea and is
registered under No. VFA019 with the Advisory Committee on Voluntary For.

formation Bureau. Your help is vital to a child struggling for life, itself. Give
them your help today, so you can live together tomorrow.

This committee works to serve the women of Michigan. Although
its main function is choosing women who will run the League well,
it must help the individual girl and her self-confidence wherever
possible. Keep up publicity through Senate, Assembly, Panhel, Daily,
and personal contact. I would especially encourage co-op, league
house, and freshman ,women to enter activities.
If elected, I would strive to make the interview easy, fun, and
interesting for the girl being interviewed.

mittee; Alice Lloyd-Hinsdale House Council: executive council at
present residence; orientation leader.
To encourage petitioning froin competent freshmen, transfers,
and foreign students I would like to see Daily publicity continued be-
sides publicity in housing units, especially League House,~ co-ops in-
creases. I would strive to be objective and friendly in considering
petitions and interviews; thinking especially of how the position
would help the girl. I consider this committee the most important body
in the League, and I would put a great deal of .enthusiasm and time
into it.

As a member of the Interviewing and Nominating Committee, I
would feel it my responsibility:
1. to, through the best possible publicity, stimulate the capable and
responsible women on campus to an interest in petitioning.
2. to use my best judgement in determining the right girl for the job
and the right job for the girl . being fully acquainted with the

Three important points I would emphasize if I become a member
of the League Interviewing and Nominating Committee are:
Publicity - and lots of it, in order to encourage girls to petition
who are shy about plunging into something they do not know much
about. E
Fitting the girl to the position she would be most suited for. I
think this is just as important as fitting to the position the person
most qualified to fill it.
The relative value of the petition and the personal interview
should not be standardized, but varied to suit each individual candi-
Activities: Frosh Week-end, Publicity Committee; PanHel Ball, Asst.
Decorations chairman; Soph Scandals; House Rush Chairman.
I believe that the Interviewing and Nominating Committee is the
most important committee in the League. It is responsible for filling
the League positions with capable and industrious girls. Not only is
the committee indebted to the League, but to the girl petitioning in
that the right job is found for the right girl. To encourage petitioning,
better publicity is definitely needed. One suggestion is to have League
Night during spring petitioning so that interest in the League may
be heightened at this time.

The purpose of the Interviewing and Nominating Committee, as
I see it, is to encourage qualified, interested, enthusiastic girls to peti-
tion for League positions, girls .who will contribute to making the
League an even bigger and better organization. As a member of In-
terviewing and Nominating, I would choose girls fairly for positions
