'U' Groups
Will Discuss
Coed Hours
Women's Senate met yesterday
and discussed the plans for the
coming year.
The number one topic on the
agenda was the report concern-
ing the status of women's hours.
Ginny Keel, Judiciary officer, told
the senators of plans regarding
hours for the next few weeks.
She said that the committee on
women's hours was following the
ideas of Plan A, accepted by Uni-
versity women last April, which
allows each coed to have as many
late permissions as she wishes.
Women's Judiciary committee
has taken the direct results of the
survey held last spring and has
formed them into a basic system
to be used by all houses.
The number of late permissions,
hour and penalties for being late
will be discussed by house mothers
Within the next few weeks, Miss
Keel reported, there will be a
meeting of the chairmen of the
various house judiciaries, mem-
bers of the judiciaries and house
mothers to discuss the number of
late permissions.
She added that each house
would have to decide how it was
going to keep its late permissions.

In past performances person-
alities such as Robert Q. Lewis, J.
Fred Lawton and Paul "Dizzy"
Trout have emceed the show.
First Band Appearance
The University of Michigan
Symphony Band, under the direc-
tion of Prof. William D. Revelli,
will make its first public appear-
ance of the season in performing
for Varsity Night. The band will
feature stirring marches, familiar
"pop" selections and other color-
ful numbers.
The history of the variety show
has been as varied as its perform-
ances. The first Varsity Night was
presented in 1939 as the "brain-
child" of Ernest Jones, at that
time student manager of the band
and an editor on The Daily.
Professional acts from Broad-
way and vaudeville, football greats
and radio and television person-

alities have added their talents to
Varsity Nights down through the
years. Many of the shows have
featured illustrious song writers
and conductors performing their
own numbers.
All seats for the show are re-
served. Blocks of seats may be ob-
tained at 3519 Administration
Building. Tickets will be on sale
to the general public beginning
Wednesday, Oct. 19, in the lobby
of the Administration Building.

As a wave of Rose Bowl fever
seems to be sweeping the campus,
Westward-bound hopefuls may be
interested in learning the inside
story of Michigan football.
At 7:15 p.m. today, the WAA
will again sponsor its annual foot-
ball clinic at Waterman Gym-
nasium in order to help students,
male and female, to gain a better
understanding of the game.
Featured speakers at the clinic
will be freshman football coach
Wally Weber; Merritt "Tim"
Green, 1952 football captain and
Phil Douglis, sports editor of The
Michigan Tradition
Douglis will speak on "The Tra-
dition That Is Michigan."
Weber, described as "the genial
big man with the polysyllabic vo-
cabulary," has made almost as big
a name for himself on the banquet
circuit as he has a coach and
As an after dinner speaker and
television and radio analyst, the
popular mentor has been heard by
millions of sports fans. He has
appeared in nearly 400 cities and
1,000 gatherings in the United
States and Canada.
Emcee Appearance
Several years ago he appeared
in Varsity Night as an emcee.
On the field Weber was a rugged
fullback on Fielding H. Yost's last
two Big Ten championship teams
in 1925-26. At this time he was
a teammate of the present Uni-
versity coach, Bennie Oosterbaan.
Before taking over as freshman
coach, Weber coached the back-
field of three Western Conference
Football Door Prize
As an added attraction, some
lucky student will leave the clinic
as the proud possessor of a foot-
ball autographed by varsity team
members and given as a doorprize.
Members of the cheerleading

team will also be on hand to an-
swer questions.
Formations such as split T's,
double wing-backs, quarter back
sneaks and statue of liberty plays,
all basic to the gridiron sport and
mentioned daily in newspapers,
usually bring blank expressions to
the face of the average coed.
Add to Enjoyment
Taking this fact into considera-
tion, a little knowledge of the
game may add to student enjoy-
Originally designed primarily
for coeds, interest of University
male students was so great in the
project, that it is now open to all
After the clinic, a question and
answer period will be conducted
with all speakers participating.
Nancy Blumberg, public rela-
tions chairman of the WAA, is in
charge of the event.

tral Committee positions for

Library, the only library on cam-
pus restricted to women.
Located on the third floor of the
League, the library is arranged
informally so that coeds may relax

offers women a chance to slip off
their shoes while concentrating
on studies.
It is reported to be so relaxing
that some coeds completely forget
trying to catch up on their studies
and instead catch up on their
Numerous Books
Numerous books including bio-
graphies, fiction, non-fiction, var-
ious reference books and the ever-
important dictionary are on hand.
Coeds also may find reports

from the past presidents of the

League committee reports.
Women interested in petitioning
for League posts may go to the
Library to look at samples of the
petitions other coeds have used.
These are kept on file and are open
to all.

brar ywill be open to women on
