- Marilyn gained more experience in Panhel problems and opera-
tions when she served as chairman of the research committee set up
to study the implications of spring rush two years ago.
With this experience she stepped into the office of president of
all affiliated women on campus.
"We haven't had occasion to deal with problems as such this year,"
the blond coed remarked, "but we have been strengthened internally
and externally with the administration, national panhel and alums."
"Everything was a pet project," she said smiling, "including the
new secretarial committee, tryout program, the Affiliate, the sorority
newsletter and the establishment of a community service project work-
ing with the Junior Chamber of Commerce selling fruit cakes for
equipment for the Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation."
Likes, Working with.People
Leaning back in her chair she reflected over the past year. "I
enjoyed most working with all people-students, faculty, administra-
tion and especially Dean Elizabeth Leslie, assistant dean of Women
and Panhel Advisor."
One of her sorority sisters remarked, "I never saw Marilyn with-
out a smile and a bottle of homemade aspirin."
Although she had meetings every night and rarely went to bed
before 4 a.m., she never missed an 8 o'clock.
The third generation of Houcks to attend the University's phar-
macy school, the tall coed considers pharmacy, "a wonderful field for
women. In the past ten years it has advanced from a trade to a
To Appear on Television
Marilyn, who.1s just at home in the white pharmacy jacket as in
a chemise, is "really excited about appearing on television in Detroit
soon to tell of pharmacy as a career."
"Oh, golly," she laughed, "this has been a thrilling year."
"In June I'm taking my state boards in pharmacy," the coed from
Perrysburg, Ohio remarked, "And on July 29 I'm leaving for a year
of study in Denmark in the program of the Scandanivan Seminar for
Three months in Copenhagen living with two separate families
and 22 weeks in a folk school studying art or literature will give
Marilyn a, -broad education before she enters pharmacy on her return
Hopes to See World Fair
"I hope to get to the World Fair, too," Marilyn optimistically said.
A knitter in her days before getting busy in campus government,
Marilyn is now working on a ski sweater which will see use in Denmark.
Last weekend Marilyn was busy cleaning up the Panhel office and-
getting the files in order. One of her fellow board members said,
"Marilyn had the direct, logical approach of the scientist in all her

most of the work himself. In their
spare time the assistants make

Recently for example, one of the
assistants made an ashtray with
spiral legs. It was ornamented
with a stag, a doe and two ducks
made by Myers in his spare time.
