Class Activities
Besides studies and social activities,
the Michigan woman finds time to
participate in the class activities
which play such an important part in
her college career. These activities,
which range from sports and drama
to class projects, not only afford en-
joyment and social contacts, but also
induce a keen class spirit.
Many campus traditions are cen-
tered around the projects given by the
various classes each year. The
oldest and most colorful of these tra-
ditions is the Junior Girls' Play,
which was begun 32 years ago by a
few junior women who wanted to
honor the outgoing senior women by
an evening of dramatic entertain-
ment. From a short program in
Barbour Gym, to which only the
senior women were invited, the J.G.P.
has grown to be the largest enterprise
sponsored by. any, class. With a cast
of about 200 women, the J.G.P. is
now given for two nights in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre, not only to pay
tribute to the senior women, but also
for the benefit of the public.
The entire play, which in the last
several years has been written in the
form of a musical comedy satirizing
various features of campus life, is
written, produced, costumed, staged
and enacted by members of the jun-
ior class. Preceding the play, the
seniors, who don their caps and
gowns for the first time, are given
a dinner in the League.
Last year's play, "Sprize!" depart-
ed from the traditional musical com-
edy revue by omitting the usual love
scenes and leading characters, and

Membership Requirements
For Groups, Initiations
Are Described
To become a B.M.O.C. or a B.W.-
O.C., according to certain sages on
campus, all you have to do is to be
seen at the Parrot about 10 a.m.
every morning, sipping a coke. But if
you ask the big men and women on
campus, you'll find their sailing
wasn't as smooth as all that.
Michigan women learn that the
more you put into college life, the
more you. get out of it, and for a richer
and fuller college career the ambition
of every woman is to attain member-
ship to various campus honor so-
cieties. Eligibility to most of these
societies is based on scholarship.
leadership and activities.
Honor Societies Important
Freshman' womcln strive for mem-
bership into Alpha Lambda Delta,
national honor sorority, for freshmen
women, for which a half-A and half-
B scholastic; average is required, dur-
ing the first semester of work. A
chapter of Alpha Lamda Delta, which
was founded at the University of Ill-
inois, was organized here in March,
1928. Dean Alice C. Lloyd is faculty
adviser, and the newly-elected offi-
cers are: Julia Ann Upson, president;
Christine Gesell, secretary; and Mar-
garet Bryant, treasurer.
Sophomores have no society of their
own, but instead spend their time
in trying to meet the requirements
of the junior organization, Wyvern,
which was founded fifteen years ago
under the supervision of Mrs. Fred-
erick J. Jordan, then Dean of Women.
The society chooses its members, on
the basis of scholarship and activ-
ities, from the sophomore class early
in the spring.
New Members Tapped
On "tapping night," the active
members march around to the homes
of the new members, routing them
out and taking them for refreshments
to the home of Mrs. Byrl Fox Bacher,
assistant dean of women, and sponsor
of Wyvern. . The formal initiation,
which is followed by a dinner at the
League, is held in the League Chapel.
During the school year, the society
endeavors to acquaint freshman
women with the different phases of
college life. Last year members of Wy-
vern sponsored a series of six lunch-
eon meetings for freshmen women,
at which they discussed the various
fields of activities which new students
can enter at the beginning of the
second- semester, such as the Fresh-
man Project, Sophomore Cabaret,
Junior Girls' Play and the various
student publications.
The highest honor a woman can re-
ceive in her senior year is to be asked
to join Mortarboard, national sen-

ior honor society. With membership
based on scholarship, leadership and
service, only the outstanding members
of the Senior class are selected. Mor-
tarboard, which was founded at Syra-
cuse in 1918, has chapters at Cornell,
Ohio State, Swarthmore and Mich-
One of the most colorful campus
traditions is the ceremony at which
Mortarboard members of the outgo-
ing senior class choose new members
from the women of the junior class.
All women students of the University
attend the Installation Banquet.
After the new League heads are in-
stalled, the old members of Mortar-
board gather in the outside rooms
in caps and gowns, anid at a signal
from the president of the group,
march through the room. Each sen-
ior member goes to a junior woman
who has been elected, taps her on the
shoulder and places her own mortar~-
board on the new member's head.
The number of women chosen varier
each year, and to be eligible a junior
must have a scholastic average above
the general average of all campus
women, and take an outstanding
part in college life.
Mortarboard is not limited to sor-
ority women, but the independent
women have their own senior honor
group, the Senior Society, a local
group by preference. The organiza-
tion, founded in 1905 by Myra Jordan,
chooses about twelve outstanding
junior women to membership in the
spring. Senior Society has been in-
strumental in founding the League
Assembly, and gives a $50 scholar-
ship to one outstanding sophomore
Other societies are: Athena, literary
:society; Zeta Phi Eta, speech group;
Theta Sigma Phi, national journalism
sorority; and Phi Lamda Theta, na-
tional education sorority.
