Co-op Council
Recently oriented into the
structure of Assembly Association
is the Cooperative Council.
This Council was set up because
the co-op delegates to ADC meet-
ings were not concerned about
the problems common to large
residence halls and did not feel
justified in asking ADC's time to
solve their own highly specialized
The functions of the Council
are to consider, analyze and at-
tempt to solve problems which
arise and are particular to the co-
operatives on campus.
One area which will be dis-
cusses is operational problems
which includes enforcement of
work schedlules, snack rules and
social activities, especially for
Public relations is another area
which will be explored. Co-opers
want to build morale within the
houses and also correct the mis-
conceptions on campus concern-
ing co-ops and who lives in them,
The co-ops not only want to
unify themselves through this
council, but they want to be uni-
fied with the entire university
Membership in the Co-op coun-
cil includes one member from
each of the three University co-
ops, one member from each of
the three ICC co-ops and a mem-
ber from Assembly Board.
A regular delegate to the ADC
reports back to the Council in
their bi-monthly meetings.
The ADC has the power of re-
view over any legislative deci-
sions, and the Council will vote in
ADC matters, holding one vote
for each girl present at the meet-

The 1956 MUSKET presenta-
tion of "Brigadoon" marks the

the Opera took its final bows and
passed forever from the college

"Brigadoon" is the story of
Tommy Allbright, an American
hunter who is lost in the Scottish
Highlands. He stumbles upon a
village not on the map called
"Brigadoon." Tommy falls in love
with a pert and lovely lass named
Fiona MacLaren. He learns that
Brigadoon was m i r a c u l o u s l y
blessed two hundred years ago
and that it lapsed into a sleep
from which it awakens only one
day in every hundred years.
Villagers cannot leave the town
but a stranger can stay if he falls
in love and is willing to give up
everything for the sake of that
love. Unsure of his love for Fiona,
Tommy leaves the village. How-
ever, Tommy and Fiona are re-
united through a second miracle.

Is studying bugging you? Do you have trouble re-
membering names, dates, facts, figures, and the location
of the library? Dear friends, it need not be so. All you
have to do is master the simple art of mnemonics.
Mnemonics, as we all know, was invented by the great
Greek philosopher Mnemon in 526 B.C. Mnemonics, in-
cidentally, was only one of the many inventions of this
fertile Athenian. He is perhaps best known for his in-
vention of the staircase, which, as you may imagine, was
of inestimable value to mankind. Before the staircase,
people who wished to go from floor to floor had to leap
from springboards. This meant, of course, that aged and
infirm persons were forced to live out their lives, willy-
nilly, on the ground floor, and many of them grew cross
as bears. Especially Demosthenes, who was elected con-
sul of Athens three times but never served because he
was unable to get up to the office of the commissioner
of oaths on the third floor to be sworn in.
But after Mnemon's staircase was invented, Demos-
thenes got up to the third floor easy as pie and took the
oath-to Athens' sorrow, as it turned out. Demosthenes,
his temper shortened by years of confinement to the
ground floor, soon embroiled his countrymen in a series of
senseless and costly wars with the Persians, the Visigoths,
and the Ogallala Sioux. He was voted out of office in
517 B.C., and Mnemon, who had made his accession pos-
sible, was pelted to death with fruit salad in the Duomo.

But I digress. We were discussing mnemonics, which
are nothing more than aids to memory -catchwords or
jingles that help you to remember names, dates, and
places. For example, any student of American history
surely knows the little jingle:
Columbus sailed the ocean blue
In fourteen hundred ninety two.
You see how simple a mnemonic is? There is no rea-
son why you can't make up your own. Say, for instance,
that you are proceeding with American history.
The Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock
In sixteen hundred twenty, doc.
(This jingle is especially useful to medical students.)
The next important event is the Boston Tea Party.
Let us compose a rough-and-ready couplet about that:
Samuel Adams flung the tea
Into the briny Zuyder Zee.
You can see how simple and useful they are - not
only for history, but also for current events. For instance,
In nineteen hundred fifty six
