Coffee Hours Planned
Coffee hours at the League
from 7-8 p.m., Tues. and Wed.,

Miss Schaffner adds.
So that interested coeds may

tatives from the League commit-
tees, officers and members of the

questions, she says.
To obtain a League position, a
candidate goes through a three-
step process of petitioning, inter-
viewing and nominating.
Experience Not Necessary
Previous experience in the
League is not necessary when pe-
titioning; it is interest, enthusi-
asm, and ability that count, em-
phasizes Miss Schaffner.
Petitions may be obtained in
the League undergraduate office.
A candidate presents her list of
high school and campus activi-
ties and her ideas and under-
standing of the responsibilities of
Helpful information may be ob-
tained from old petitions and
President's reports, available in
the undergraduate office. Miss
Schaffner also advises contacting
the person who now holds the of-
fice for helpful hints, and says
one "need not be a literary
genius" to write a petition.
Often it is easier to organize
ideas in outline or narrative form.
Length. is secondary to content
After writing a petition, the
candidate returns her petition to
the League undergraduate office
and signs up for an interview.
Interviews are informal and
last approximately 12 minutes.
The candidate should be prepared
to express a summary of her peti-
tion and to explain any of the
new ideas \vhich she has included
in her petition, remarks Miss
