Coed Takes 15 Hours of 'Activities'

- With a political science major,
a "teacher's certificate on the
side," a fraternity pin, and four
years of extensive work in stu-
dent activities under her belt, Don-
na Netzer has a lot on her hands.
What amazes the graduating
senior's friends is that she always
seemsto have time for more.
She explains, for instance, "I
wanted this to be my last contri-
bution to the University," in ref-
erence to a revision of Scroll hon-
orary society's constitution-one
of her recent projects. "Honor-
aries should do something to jus-
tify their existence, They should
come out and take time to act on
campus situations, and develop
The incident is typical of Don-
na, who has ben vitally interested
in contributing all she can to the
Only Fifteen Hours
Most of her ideas have been ef-
fected through the old Student
Legislature and Student Govern-
ment Council, whose vice-president
she was last semester. Now she
spends an all-time minimum of
hours per week on activities -
"only 15".
Her chief interest now is in
chairing the Deveelopment Coun-
cil's Student Relations Committee
-a year-old group devoted to
building contacts with alumni and
encouraging alumni activities. "It
should follow," Donna explains,
"that interested future alumni will
be anxious to contribute to Michi-
A sideline of this field is her
chair on the Development Council
oarcd of Directors.
Family Influence
Heredity and environment both
account for Donna's intense inter-
est in activities. Her sister, a for-
mer SL cabinet member, is mar-
ried to Bob Neary, once SL presi-
dent, whose sister Janet is a cur-
rent SGC member.
Donna herself is pinned to last
year's Daily Managing Editor,
Gene Hartwig, '58L, who finds in
her several qualities worthy of
note. "Mentioi} her adeptness
with the knitting needles," he
urged, "and her marvelous sense
of humor. Besides which she's a
very charming young lady."
Hartwig has had his influence
on Donna, too. "I'm more or less
a conservative liberal," she smiles,
"and you can guess where the
conservative part comes from."
She is, she says, one of the few
Political Science majors who has
not emerged from the department
a Democrat.
Both Sides of the Lectern
Her Poli Sci work, particularly
classes from Prof. Frank Grace,
has intrigued Donna, but she's
equally absorbed with her teach-
ing plans. She'd like to teach
civics or economics to either
eighth or twelfth graders-those
rages, she thinks, are most chal-
Her studies have suffered some-
what from Donna's extra-curricu-
lar interests. She's lost the three-
point average which admitted her,
as a freshman, to Alpha Lambda
Students Prefer
Papers Over TVw
If college students were required
to give up either newspapers or
television, they would abandon
television according to a nation-
wide survey.
The Associated Collegiate Press
asked college students throughout
the country, "If you had to give
up either newspapers or television,
which one would you give up?"
Sixty-eight per cent said they
would prefer to give up TV while
only 17 per cent would rather stop

reading papers. The remaining 15
per cent did not state a preference.
Oddly enough, this is in striking
contrast to the adult population
which, when asked the same ques-
tion, responded almost 50-50 be-
tween the two media.
Students who preferred news-
papers generally said it was be-
cause of greater coverage. But
students who stated that they
were in favor of television seemed
to prefer its conciseness and ver-
"TV is more interesting," a
Hunter College (New York City)
junior said.

she recalls, "I had to give up some

Of SGC's roster now, she is still

than SL had," Donna claims, "and
it's doing a good job at building

sure she'd affiliate-"and with the

had the chance. At the Pi Phi
house she's noted, among other
things, for her thorough perusal

every night.
Donna's future, she predicts,
will be a matter of avoiding a rut
of any kind, and combining her
teaching with alumni affairs.
"Maybe," she says, "I'm in a rut
now-but if so, it's beena good
one, and I've liked it."
