By TRUDY MONRO
In the spring, fully attired in
robes, honor cords and mortar-
boards, the members of Mortar-
board proceed to "tap" those sec-
ond semester junior women who
are tops in their chosen field.
The University's Mortarboard or
Pi Sigma Alpha, is the only wom-
en's honorary society on campus
which is not completely academic
according to chapter president
Jeanne Newell. Although scholar-
ship is the main qualification for
membership, this Society also
recognizes service and leadership
as necessary abilities.
New members who maintain a
3.2 average and are in the top 35
per cent of their class, find the
"tapping" ceremony a complete
surprise and honor since the
membership is limited to twenty-
five women on each campus.
Both independent and affiliated
women are members of the 95
Mortarboard chapters in the
United States. According to Miss
Newell, president, the University's
chapter is a member of the As-
sociation of College Honors Soci-
ety.

She adds that there are 27,000
members all over the United
States including alumni with 329
honorary members tapped after
their college career.
Aiding Miss Newell in the Mor-
tarboard cabinet are Andy Schnei-
der and Barbara McNaught, first
and second vice-president, respec-
tively. Secretary is Clarissa Jacob-
son, and Lynn Garver handles all
financial, matters.
Mortarboard advisors include
Prof. Hazel Losh of the astronomy
department, an honorary member,
Mrs. Harlan Hatcher and Mrs.
Karl Lictenberg, both alumnae.
At their meetings every other
Monday, the members decide upon
their participation in activities.
The coeds have been orientation
counselors, waitresses at the
League and hostesses at Tea
Honors Convocation.

They also offer a $100 scholar-
ship for petitioning students.
At present, the honorary is
planning a Career's Conference,
December 1, with Senior Society
and Scroll. In the spring, invita-
tions to an Ann Arbor meeting
will be extended to the Mortar-
board societies at Albion, Michi-
gan State and Wayne State.
Groups from Indiana, Illinois and
Ohio will also attend as the guests
of the University's Mortarboard
Society.
Chanukah Candles
Chanukah candles and me-
norahs may be purchased by
students any time today at the
B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation.
The first candle should be
lighted tonight.
