omen's League Has Many Branches

Gym Program Designed To Suit All Interests

The governmental structure of
ie League consists of many separ-
e branches.
Women's League Council under
he auspices of the Board of Gov-
mnors is the administrative branch
f the League. It plans and coor-
inates all women's activities on
Council members include repre-
entatives of the Executive Board,
Vomen's Judiciary Committee, the
iterviewing and Nomina.ting
ommittee, the Projects Commit-
ee and various associated organi-

" Steering Committee
The Executive Board serves as
a steering committee for League
Council and Women's Senate. The
board consists of the President of
the League, the chairmen of In-
teryiewing and Nominating and
Judiciary Council and the three
members at large of the Senate.
The Projects Committee carries
out ?league services and social ac-
tivities. Chairmen represented on
the council include dance class,
house, orientation, merit-tutorial,
public, relations, social and com-
miunity service.
other chairmen on League coun-
ell ae special projects, Junior
Girls Play, Sophomore Show, Frosh
Weekend, vice president of Assem-
bly Association, League-House Ju-
diciary and the partiamentaran of
the League.
Associated Organizations
Associated organizations have as
their representative the presidents
of the 'Women's Athletic Associa-
tion, Women's Glee Club and the
Women's Editor of The Daily,
One of the mdst important
groups of the League is the Senate.
It is the legislative body which
makes the final decision on pro-
posed legislation, new projects, the
budget and elects most new League
It is composed of one elected
senator for every sixty coeds in the
large dormitories, and one senator
tor each small, house with less
than 50 women. The presidents of
all the women's residences are al-
so members.
Ex-offico Members
The president, two vice-presi-
dents, secretary and treasurer of
the League are ex-officio mem-
bers of the Senate, as is the league
partianentarian. ,
In the past, real leaders of the
Senate are the three senators at
large. These women are elected'by
and from the new senators each
spring. They head three divisional
.committees of the League, includ-
ing the Cultural committee which
holds special informal lectures on
music, fine arts, current political
and campus issues.
However, last semester, a change
was made and under this new plan
an executive-secretary was sub-
stituted for one of the senators at
This was done because of the
enormous amount of work connec-
ted with the mechanical running
of the Senate. The Senators felt
that by making this position one a
student could petition for, they
would obtain a more capable and
interested officer.
The next committte is the elec-
tion study cmmitttee, which stud-
ies the present system of elections
held on campus.
Educational Committee
There is also an educational
Committee which informs the pub-
lic about the League's projects.s
This group makes the senatorst
more aware of the different organ-
izations on campus, such as the
International Center.
A comparatively new committee,
the Burocats was formed to act as1
office helpers for all committees.
Through Buro-cats, freshman
and transfer students and all other
coeds who are interested in work-s
ing in the League but who do not
have much spare time can partici-
Fulfill Needs
These coeds fulfill the need ofE
the league officers and committee1
who often have not the time to doi
the detailed work their job entails.'
Buro-cats consist of the artt
committe, secretariat and recep-

tionist. Last semester two new
committees were added, the Senate
research committee and the activi-
ties committee.
For each of these five commit-
tees one person is in charge who
are individually responsible to the
Second Vice - president of the
League. She sees to it that the
Buro-cat organization runs
Interviewing, Nominating
The Interviewing and Nominat-
ing Committee is one of the most
important committees in the
League. It accepts all petitions and
interviews all candidates trying
out for League positions.
Since the committee members
are all students, the interviews
tend to be informal.
The Social committee is respon-
sible for the special affairs of the
League. The first big dance of the
year will be held Saturday, Sept.
22, in the League Ballroom. This
informal dance is entitled "Fall
Fling" and will feature the music
of Don,Young's Combo.
Fall Fling
Decorations for Fall Fling will
be based on University tradition,
the Diag, the lions in front of the
science museum and honorary in-
itiations will predominate. The
committee hopes these decorations
will appeal to the upper classmen
who have already experienced
. Among its other activities the
Social Committee assists Mrs. Har-
lan Hatcher with the student open
hoursgiven in the Hatcher home.
The committee also takes charge
of bridge lessons, provides a cam-
pus guide service, is responsible
for the League Open House and
cooperates with the Men's Union.
The public relations committee
informs all students of the League
activities and explains its facili-
One of the largest jobs this
group has is publishing the League
Lowdown, which all women receive
upon entering the University.
League Lowdown
Besides the League Lowdown,
this committee works in conjunc-
tion with the Union Public Rela-
tions Committee in publishing a
Union-League Calendar. This cal-
endar lists the different activities
appearing on campus each day and
states the big weekend affairs so
students can-get dates well ahead
of time.
Through the house committees,
the decorations for all events held
in the League are checked to make
Local Groups
Wil I Sponsor
Talent Show
Gulantics, the only all-campus
talent show, is sponsored annually
to give 'U' students who are gift-
ed in entertainment an opportun-
ityJ to perform,
Founded by Prof. Phillip A. Du-
ey, director of the Men's Glee
Club in recent years, it has be-
come a tradition at the Universi-
The name was chosen from en-
tries submitted in a contest and
contained the "G" for the Glee
Club, a "U" for the Union and
an "L" for the League, the three
groups which sponsor the event.
Talent is handled by the League
through all - campus aduitions,
while the Union supervises the
staging. Financial risk is taken en-
tirely by the Glee Club, which al-
so manages the publicity.
. The show is composed of both
competing and non - competing

acts. Singers, dancers, musicians,
comedians, single and group acts
are all welcomed to fill the quota
of about ten acts every year.
Last year's performance Includ-
ed a surprise skit by members of
the faculty, a levitation act, an
illustrated rendition of Poe's "The
Telltale Heart," selections by the
Men's Glee Club, a three trumpet
group, and two campus bands.

The house committee also looks
after the League Library.
Potential Coeds
T h e orientation committee's
chief function is to select coeds
with potentialities in leadership
for orientation leaders.
To the incoming freshmen, the
orientation leader represents a
stable object in the newness of
University life.
One of the many services which
the League, in cooperation with

the men's Union, offers all stu-
dents is tutoring.
Tutors Provided
The Leakue merit-tutorial com-
mittee aids students who seek aca-
demic help by providing them with
the name and phone number of a

B in a subject which is his major
field or an A in any other course
may become a tutor.
These different committees help
to make thinks run smoothly for
co-operation and integration lend
themselves to an efficient frame-

Among the many things that are
required of incoming freshman
coeds and transfer students is the
fulfillment of the one year physi-
cal education requirement.
Although this may produce a
groan from those who don't enjoy
athletic activities, it is a marvelous
opportunity to learn or become
proficient at almost any sport. The
facilities and instruction at the
University are among the best.
The program for women is di-
vided into four eight-week ses-
sions. Each eight-week period co-

eds select a different activity or

A putting green and two golf
courses are available for those who
enjoy golf or want to learn the
fundamentals. There are many
tennis courts just for coeds and
four bowling alleys in the Wom-
ens Athletic Building for bowling
An eight week leadership course
is offered to those women inter-
ested in serving as playground di-
rectors and camp counselors.

Coeds who elect swimming as
one of their choices will have the
new Womens Pool at their dispo-
sal. This pool is equipped with un-
derwater lighting and sound which
is used by Michifish when they
present their water- ballet show
each spring.
For those who have been in-
trigued with modern dance where
the dancer expresses his own feel-
ings, such courses are offered. The
Modern Dance Club and the Bal-
let Club are extra-curricular ac-
tivities which supplement these

Badminton, baseball, fencing
diving, synchronized swimmini
archery, and a course in posture

There are also outside club
which facilitate these courses fo
those students who can't get thei
full in class or for those upper
classmen who aren't enrolled i
the classes.
So take advantage of these won
derful opportunities and enjo
