Coeds To Organize Athletic Clubs




People passing by our campus
often wonder who the Buro-cats
are because the name is rather un-
usual and doesn't give much of a.
hint as to what type of organiza-
tion it is.
However, the Buro-cats are a
volunteer group of coeds who are
organized to introduce freshmen
women and new students to
League activities.
A Buro-cat meets the women of
League Council and other coeds
working with the League so that
by the end ,of the year, she feels
well acquainted with the organiza-
tion and can then join one of the
Buro-cats five committees.
Five Committees
The Buro-cats is divided into
five different committees with a
chairman heading each division.
These chairmen make up the ad-
visory board which is chaired by
the second vice-president of the
League, Maureen Isay.'
Donna Wickham is chairman of
the research committee and Fern
Frisby chairs the secretariat com-
mittee. Sue Janetzke is the head
of the art committee and Arline
Harris takes charge of the acti-
vities committee. The receptionist
committee has for its chairman
Gerry Wise.
The job of the research commit-
tee is to let students see and un-
derstand how the League func-

mittee are called up whenever any
committee of the League needs

least twice a year. In this manner
engineers deserving advancement
can be quickly "spotted" and pro-
moted. As soon as an engineer is
ready for more complex responsi-
bilities they are given him.
