Traditional Ceremony
In Tapping of Coeds
Students who hear screams and
shouts late at night soon, need
not be alarmed, for it is only
honoraries out tapping.
Each society follows its own
particular ritual as it proceeds
from house to house claiming new
Tapping junior affiliated coeds,
Scroll members will go from house
to house after hours singing, "Out
of the night comes a sound of
voices, Scroll now is tapping its
loyal crew." A cardboard scroll
is put around the neck of the
tapped coed and she wears it to
classes next day.
Attired in black academic robes,
Senior Society members parade
through the dorms singing, "In
and out the halls we wander, sing-
ing as we go; of the girls we're
going to favor with our pins of
black and gold. Recognizing loyal
service and thei jobs well done,
they will wear our bows and col-
ors and of usthey will be one."
Surprise to Coed
The housemother and the coed's
roommate usually know about the
tapping but it comes as a surprise
to the new member. When she is
reached, a white collar is placed
around her neck and she wears
the collar next day.
Senior society members are chos-
en on the basis of outstanding
achievement through leadership
and extra curricular activities.
Wyvern, honorary for junior
women, will soon be tapping so-
phomore women who are outstand-
ing in activities, character and
Wearing yellow slickers, mem-
bers usually tap during the din-
ner hour. As they march, they
can be heard singing, "Damn,
damn, damn to Michigamua, to
hell with Sphinx and Vulcans too,
to the Druids and the rest, for we
know we are the best. We are
Wyvern's daughters tried and
true, damn, damn."
First To Tap
Mortarboard, national society
for both affiliated and independ-
ent junior women is the first hon-
orary to tap.
Wearing caps and gowns and
carrying flashlights the members
will march from house to house
singing "Thy Ideals," which is
sung all over the country by Mor-
tarboard's 95 chapters.
The person who does the tap-
ping usually has worked with the
coed being tapped or is affiliated
with her in some way. Before
tapping the prospective woman,
members march through the house
single file and walk right past her.
After a few minutes they re-
turn and put a mortarboard on
her head. She is then given an
invitation and the members con-
tinue singing and leave.
Coeds tapped for Mortarboard
generally are not eligible for Sen-
ior Society or Scroll.

After three years of planning
by East Quadrangle residents, "Op-
eration Ransom," a basement re-
development project is nearing
Students drew up the original
plans for several rooms to be built'
in the basement area when the
council planned to reconvert an
old hallway which ran the length
of the Quadrangle's cellar,
"The project was probably
christened 'Operation Ransom' be-
cause the council had to go out on
a limb to finance it," commented
Bob Warrick, East Quad presi-
Plan and Decorate
Aside from the basic construc-
tion work, the residents of the
Quad are doing all the planning
and decorating of each of the
rooms which make up "Operation
The library, named for Charles
H. Benzinger, who "conceived and
planned the project," according to
the plaque erected in his honor.
The former treasurer of East Quad
and chairman of the finance.com-
mittee was killed in an accident
in 1954.
Designed primarily as a refer-
ence library, it will contain a va-
riety of encyclopedias, dictionaries
and engineering books.
To Paint Mural
Professor Frank Cassara of the
School of Architecture and De-
sign and one of his classes have
volunteered to paint a mural on
one of the walls of this room.
Next to the library there is a
large council room which is al-
ready functioning as a meeting
place for the East Quad council,
house councils and various com-
Along the hall outside the
council room, there are two prac-
tice rooms equipped with pianos
contributed by the music school.
A group of students is now in the
process of painting and sound
proofing these rooms.
WCBN Headquarters
"Operation Ransom" was not
only planned for the benefit of
East Quadrangle residents but h"
made a vital contribution to the
University as the headquarters of
the East Quad branch of WCBN,
the Campus Broadcasting Net-
The radio station consists of

three ultra-modern rooms-the of-
fice, -the studio and the con-
trol room. The control room is
equipped with two turntables, rec-
ord racks, a transmitter and con-
trol board.
The office, which holds an As-
sociated Press teletype, is the
home of all WCBN news broad-,
Woodworking tools, equipment
for repairs, mimeographs and dit-
to machines are available in one
of the new rooms titled the stu-
dent workshop.
Camera Club
The remaining room in "Opera-
tion Ransom" houses the Camera
Club. This is a darkroom for stu-
dent use, containing enlargers, de-
velopers. and developing tanks.
Except for construction of the
walls the entire project has been
planned and operated by students
living in the Quad. Interior deco-
rating of the entire project is be-
ing handled by a committee of
tfie East Quad Council with the
aid of Mrs. J. M. Hale.
The cost to date has been $6,850.
These funds have been provided
by the residents of East Quad-
rangle, University of Michigan
Men's Residence Halls and con-
tributions from individual donors.
For three years East Quad resi-
dents have worked so that future
students will be able to pursue
their hobbies, find a comfortable
place to study and practice, and
have an established meeting place
in the various corners of Opera-
tion Ransom.
