ALWAYS READY AND WILLING:
Friendliness Characterizes Women's Judic Chairman

By CAROLYN MILLER
"Friendly and genuine" are the
Jean Kafka, says Polly Vliet who
is one of "B.J.'s" sorority sisters.
"Whenever anyone in the Kap-
pa Kappa Gamma house needs a
helping hand, 'B.J.' is always
ready and willing," remarks her
roommate. For the time she de-
votes to her sorority, "B.J." was
awarded a ring signifying -their
appreciation. When she was given
this ring, instead of getting up
and smiling sweetly all she could
say was "my foot is asleep."
Charleston Fan
A Charleston fan, Betty Jean is
often asked to display her talents
to her roommate to the music of
'I Love My Baby.'
However her sorority sisters are
quick to say that the slender, dark
haired coed is not all humor.
"B.J." is able to get things done
without putting pressure on her-
self or others. As Chairman of
Women's Judiciary Council, "B.J."
gets many opportunities to dem-I
onstrate this ability.
"B.J.", a native of Denver, Col-
orado, started her work in student
government as a member of her:
house council when she was a
freshman. This activity sparked,
her interest in campus affairs,
and the next year she became a

While she was serving on
committee ,"B.J." decided to
tition for the office which

this
pe-
she

now holds.
As a member of the League
Council, Chairman of Women's
Panel, Secretary of Scroll and
past treasurer of Kappa Kappa
Gamma, she gained valued ex-
perience.
"Out West" where she lives, her
family has a large ranch. One day
her father, who had purchased a
tractor for every member of the
family decided that the whole
family would help in the haying.
Bales Hay
"B.J.", who says her farmall
looks like a "huge, monstrous ani-
mal" worked all day baling the
hay. "It was bad enough doing
that hard work, but I can barely
shift gears in a car," she said.
The Judic chairman loves to
travel. She has been in almost ev-
ery state in the United States.

Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and
Europe.
While she was in Bermuda, she
toured the island in a motor
scooter. It was also in Bermuda
that she won her first prize. While
dining at a restaurant, her name
was drawn as the winner of the
doorprize. They blindfolded her
and put a live lobster in her hand.
Philosophy
"B.J." firmly believes that un-
less you make up your mind to
do something you won't do it. It
is with this in mind that she is
planing a safari to Egypt, India
and other parts of Africa.
In fact, she will discuss these
plans avidly whenever anyone will
listen to her dream of the future.

Perhaps the most vital problem
with which "B.J." has been con-
cerned here at the University is
the extension of women's hours.
She and the other members of
Women's Judic worked closely
with Dean Deborah Bacon and
the Women's Senate to decide this
issue.
Want to Cooperate
They are also concerned with
cooperating with the University
on the problem of temporary
housing for women.
Now studying business admin-
istration "B.J." plans to go into
a small business after graduation.
But first she is going to Boston for
a business background and to see
where her interests lie.

Junior women perform a dance routine from "Live It Up" which opened last night.
By MARY BETH GODFROY }

"Live It Up," the 1957 produc-
two traits most applicable to Betty
tion of the Junior Girl's Play,
made its debut last night in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre before a re-
ceptive, capacity audience of se-
nior women.
Before attending this Senior
Night performance of the 52nd
annual JGP, coeds had the tra-
ditional dinner and entertainment
in the League Ballroom.
Entertainment consisted of skits
from the 1954 Frosh Weekend,
1955 Soph Scandals and the 1956
JGP in which the seniors had
participated.
Skits Re-enacted
Coeds were asked what skits
from these shows they wanted to
see and the seniors who had per-
formed them in the original per-
formances re-enacted them for
the audience.
Deborah Bacon, Dean of Wo-
men, imitated Elvis Presley by
giving her rendition of "Hound
Dog". She also did a "take off"

on Harry Belafonte's "Jamaican
Farewell" when she sang that she
was sorry "to leave my little girls
from Ann Arbor town."
Coeds then performed the mar-
riage status ritual. Married wo-
men carried a candle; engaged
women sucked a lemon; pinned
coeds exchanged their fraternity
pin for a safety pin; unattached
women threw pennies in a wish-
ing well, one for each year of their
age.
Attend JGP
After this ceremony, coeds at-
tended the opening night per-
formance of JGP which was giv-
en in their honor.
The plot of this year's play,
which has been kept secret since
last May, was revealed to the fem-
inine audience. Daisy, a working
girl from New York City, and sev-
en of her conventional co-workers
go to Florida for a vacation paid

While staying at a gorgeous re-
sort, the Sunspot, the girls be-
come involved in two conventions.
