Poll Results Revealed
y -Hop Committee

Many Topics
Discussed
By Assembly
ADC Agenda Included
Problems of Rushing,
Speakers from SGC
SOC speakers and the question
of deferred rushing were among
the topics discussed at the As-
sembly Dorm Council meeting
Monday at the League.
Gaining a receptive audience for
SGC candidate speakers presented
a problem again this year. The
question of when to have speak-
ers at the dorms in order that
most of the girls be there to hear
the speeches was discussed by the
ADC.
Suggestions were made to the
effect that speeches be given be-
tween the main course and des-
sert at a sit-down dinner and be-
fore dinner or directly afterward.
After Dinner Speakers
ADC proposed that SGC speak-
ers would get the best results if
speeches were given in the wom-
en's dorms about an hour before
dinner, between 5 and 6 p.m.
A great deal of discussion was
devoted to the question of deferred
rushing by various ADCrepresen-
tatives. It is felt by many people
that rushing proceduresas they
are now result in a poor psycholo-
gical and mental attitude on the
part of the freshman.
Many University officials feel
that rushing immediately upon en-
trance to the University inter-
feres with the freshman's acade-
mic work. It throws him into a
tense situation which often re-
sults in an extended adjustment
period.
Deferred Rushing
The 'question of keeping rushing
as it is now, or deferring it is
foremost in importance for both
Panhellenic and Assembly Asso-
ciations. The present problem is
in obtaining ,a workable commit-
tee to test the adequacy of de-
ferred rushing. After much dis-
cussion, it was proposed by the
ADC that housing groups form a
committee with the possibility of
an SGC coordinator.
A Michigras mass meeting was
held yesterday in the Union ball-
room. Interviewing for Michigras
will be Wednesday, Oct. 26, to FAw
day, Oct. 28.
There will be a skits chairman
meeting at 7:30 Monday in the
League.

Meeting To Be Held
For Junior Michifish

By ROSE PERLBERG
A five year dream was on its
way to reality for Polish born
Helena Szatukiewicz, whose rela-
tively short life has been well
marked with hardship, as she went
through the first steps in apply-
ing for U.S. citizenship papers a
few weeks ago.
Now a junior at the University
majoring in linguistics, Miss Sza-
tukiewicz spent the early years of
her childhood in Poland.
She was' confined to a German
concentration camp for 10 months
of World War II. Freed by the
Allied forces, Miss Szatukiewicz
and her mother lived the next few
years in a Displaced Persons camp
during the U.S. occupation.
Led Nomadic Life
The pretty brunette recalled life
in the DP camp as nomadic,
"Camps were very temporary; we
moved as much as three or four
times a year."
Miss Szatukiewicz came to the
U.S. in the spring of 1950 and
was sent to Bay City, Michigan,
now her permanent residence,
where she was taken in by a local
family for a year's period of orien-
tation to life in America.
Unable to speak any English,
Miss Szatukiewicz worked during
the summer trying to pick up
some of the strange language be-
fore she entered the school in the
fall.
Senior Year-Hardest
"My first year at Central High
School was the hardest," the slim
language major declared.

(*..

-Daily-Sam Ching
HELENA SZATUKIEWICZ
The thing she found most diffi-
culty with her limited vocabulary
was reading English and history
lessons.
Proficient in seven languages:
Miss Szatukiewicz maintains that
English is most differently written
than spoken, than any other lan-
guage.
Classmates Help
She learned quickly, often with
the help of sympathetic class-
mates, "although there were often
always people who would laugh
every time I mispronounced a
word."

-Daily--Gerald Taylor
IN THE SWIM-Marion Charvat, manager of this year's Michi-
fish discusses synchronized swimming procedures, with other
members, Margaret Warren, Eleanor Perry, Patty Hallett and
Pat Coats. Coeds interested in joining Michifish may attend the
organizational meeting to be held at 8:15 today.

Coed To See Dream Realized

Central High School was fo
lowed by two years at Bay Ci
Junior College.
Adjustment to a new and stran
culture was another of Miss Sz
tukiewicz's big problems.
People Always On Go
"The first thing that hits y
is that people are always in
rush, seemingly without any pu
pose," she exclaimed. "They a
ways seem to be reaching for so
higher goal. It's catching! Pret
soon you find yourself doing t
same thing."
Perhaps "progressive educatio
best sums the difference betwee
the American teen-age group Mi
Szatukiewicz entered and the o
she left.
"I found that the teen-ager
America has more freedom an
can do more of what he pleas
than he could in Europe," she r
marked.,
Likes "Free Movement"
Miss Szatukiewicz likes the ide
of what she called "free mov
ment" in the U.S. "You feel mo
at home with strangers and yo
don't have to be afraid of say
the wrong thing."
She feels that Europeans on tl'
whole are much more censervativ
than Americans and tend to plac
more emphasis on the family uni
Two weeks ago, Miss Szatukie
wicz, now eligible after five yea:
in the U.S., went home to Bay Ci
to apply for her citizenship paper
Applies for Citizenship
The first step was a trip to tb
coirthouse with witnesses wher
she took the oath.
After answering routine que
tions on her background an
American government, Miss Sz
tukiewicz was told she would b
notified in 30 days whether or nc
she will get the papers.
She considers this one of ti
most important events in her lif
"It's like standing on the three
hold of two lives - one endini
another beginning. I feel like I'
really accomplished something.
As for life at the University, tb
resident of Martha Cook was muc
impressed with the size and beaut
of campus buildings. The effici
ency with which everything opei
ates here especially amazed her.
Men's Glee Club
The Men's Glee Club has
selected 32 new members from
the tryouts held during the first
week of classes. At the first
rehearsal, Oleg Lobanov was
elected the new Men's Glee Club
Vice-President.

At.presentmembers ofsthe J-v
Hop Committee of the class of '57
are working on plans for this
year's dance whichwill be held
on Friday, Feb. 10, between sew
mesters.
The committee conducted a poll
during registration to secure a
representative sampling of student
preference for various n a m e
bands.
A total of 2,757 students cast
ballots in the poll. Les Brown
with 832 and Ray Anthony with
795 votes placed first and second
respectively in the balloting.
Les Elgard Placed Third.
Third place went to Les Elgard
with 351 votes while Harry James
placed fourth with 324.
The orchestras of Benny Good-
man and Buddy Morrow placed
fifth and, sixth with 276 and 173
' votes respectively.
At the present time J-Hop Com-
mittee members are trying to se-
cure the services of the Brown
and Anthony orchestras for the
dance.

In the past few years J-Hop
committees have attempted to
make the affair into a weekend
event. Tentative plans for this
year's weekend include a hayride
and barn dance to be held on
Saturday evening and an ice-skat-
ing party at the Coliseum on Sun-
day.
Weekend Event
This year's J-Hop Committee is
meeting weekly to formulate plans
for the affair.
Ron Bornstein is general chair-
man of the affair. He is assisted
by Sue Werbelow, publicity; Chuck
Sharp, tickets; Peggy Zuelch,
bands, and Mary Gronberg, deco-
rations.
Other chairmen on the J-Hop
central committee are Tom Platt,
booths; Sue Chaffee, patrons, pro-
grama and favors; and Patti
brake, special events.
Diana Cook is in charge of fin-
ancial matters while Jack DeVries
will take care of the details of
buildings and grounds.
