I In Charge
Of Regulations
Wields Disciplinary Povier
Over Campus Women;
Betty Slee Is President
All disciplinarymatters dealing with
undergraduate women are under the
jurisdiction of the Women's Judiciary
Council which is composed of three
senior and two junior members, se-
lected by campus election.
The Judiciary Council has charge
of the conduct and house of under-
graduate women, of violations of cam-
pus regulations referred to it directly
by the office of the Dean of Women.
All interviews and recommendations
shall be referred to the League Coun-
President of the Judiciary Council
for next year is Betty Slee. Senior
members are Barbara Backus and
Betty Brooks and junior members
Betty Clement and Doris Merker.
A new set of house rules was set
up last, spring. These rules are to
be read at the first meeting of each
house and thereafter all women will
be held responsible for kndwing the
regulations. In addition to the rules
which follow is that which declares
that for any lateness of half hour
or more, the offender will be called
before the Judiciary Council.
Elections and Duties of Officers
Offices. Each organized House

shall have a House President. Other
officers and committees may be chos-
en as deemed necessary.
Elections. The House President
shall be elected by the girls, by bal-
lot. All houses, the majority of whose
personnel is determined in the spring,
shall elect their president before the
closing of the school year. In all oth-
er houses a president pro tempore
shall be elected before the end of
the second school week of the year to
hold office until the first week of
November. At that time a permanent

... by Calliope..
In just a few more weeks your first year at college will begin, and be
sure that you make the most of every minute of it. As soon as you reach
Ann Arbor you'll want to fix up your room and begin getting acquainted
with your classmates. Then before you know it you'll be
whisked around the campus by your adviser who will
explain to you what goes on in the life of a coed at Michi-
gan. After that, you'll go to lectures, take tests, and meet
the important people on the campus, including both
faculty members and students.j
Later, when you've learned your way around the
campus, and know the differencie between Angell Hall and
the Natural Science Building, you'll be sent over to Barbour Gym to register
and classify. Your adviser will be very helpful at this time and explain all
the whys and wherefores of the seemingly endless reams of cards you
must fill out. And be sure to smile your prettiest at the man behind the
camera when someone puts a name card up against your chest, because
this is the genesis of your identification card which will
be your ticket to all the fun and excitement at Michigan.
Soon after your classes have started and you've begun
to plug away at your books, the rushing season will open.
m g , Wear your most becoming informal date dress and your
prettiest hat, and don't be scared. Just remember that
your hostesses have been through the same thing, and
know exactly how you feel.
, { The first thing you know the much heralded football
season will open with the Michigan State game, and you'll
be cheering and singing for Michigan's team which will
soon be your team. As soon as the game is over you'll run home and get
ready to go to the Union or League at 9 p.m.
To Be Or Not To Be
Life at Michigan sounds pretty exciting doesn't it? Well, it is, and after
you've been here for a while you won't want to trade it for any school in the
country. Go easy though, because your grades can make
you or break you, and half the fun comes with makings
your grades the first semester and being eligible to tryout
for The Daily, 'Ensian, Garg and many other activities.
Extra-curricular activities are worth while, because they
not only teach you how to get along with other people, s x y
and teach you a trade, but they're also a lot of fun. So
keep this in mind and dig into those books.
The initial formal of the year is the Union Formal, when everyone dons
her prettiest gown and dances to soft lights and sweet music. The Iowa foot-
ball game will be coming up at about the same time, so get your studying
out of the way early and have a grand time..
At the end of October, the Yale team will arrive in Ann Arbor and try
to even up the trouncing we gave them last year, so it should be a thrilling
game. Then we play Minnesota and Ohio State so cheer your loudest for the
Yellow and the Blue. We'll be right there with you.
Just before Thanksgiving, Panhellenic gives a ball. Get your tickets early
and take your best boy friend. This is one time when the tables are turned.
Soph Prom comes just before the Chrstmas Holidays so enjoy yourself and
then go back and tell the folks at home all about what you've learned and the
good times you've had at Michigan.
After Christmas, everyone settles down and studies because finals have a
nasty habit of creeping up and taking you unawares. After you've gotten
through those dark days at the end of the semester, you'll
go to the social event of the year . . . the J-Hop. Two
orchestras will play in the Intramural Building and
you'll spend an unfortgettabie evening. If you don't get
f a bid your first year don't lose any sleep over it, because
you'll have plenty of time to go during your college career.
Second semester opens right after J-Hop, so you'll
register and classify again, but by this time it will be
old stuff and you'll be adjusted to your classes in no time.
Frosh Project will soon come around, and try out for
it no matter how lowly your job may be. You'll make
friends and learn how to take responsibilities which after
all is one of the most important things to learn while
+ you're at college.
In the middle of the semester JGP (Junior Girls Play)
will be given, and be sure to see it because it's bound to be good.
High, Wide And Handsome
Throughout the spring you'll be going to dances and plenty of them.
grease Ball, when the lawyers have their fling; the engineers' Slide-Rule
Dance; the Business Ad school's Capitalists Ball; the Medical school's
Caduceous Ball; Architects' Ball, the only costume dance of the year;
Odonto Ball, when the dental students strut their stuff, to say nothing of
the Military Ball, where you'll see all of the R.O.T.C. boys in uniform; Assem-
bly Ball comes in the spring too, and the independent women doll up in
their prettiest and invite their best boy friends to a topnotch dance.
Michigras, Michigan's fair, will be given late in the spring, and you'll
ride on a loop-o-plane and see the booths of every fraternity, sorority,
dorm and organization on the campus.
Watch out for spring, because some of the most beautiful weather
you've ever known will hit Ann Arbor, and you won't feel like hitting the

books one bit. Be careful, though, because those de-v
mons in the form of final exams wild seem to drop from
a clear sky again, and you'll want to make a good show-
ing so that the folks back h&me will be proud of you. b
Remember that Michigan is a large university and one"
of the best ones in the country, so there is no place for -
slackers. Keep on the ball with your work, and you'll be '" .'
much happier in the long run."
After finals are safely out of the way, the seniors have their last fling
in the form of the Senior Ball. It's a farewell party for the seniors and
they have the first choice on the tickets, but juniors and underclassmen will

Needy Women
Have Available
Many Awards
To assist or reward qualified wom-
en of the University a great number
of scholarships and prizes are an-
nually awarded.

sity of Michigan Alumnae Scholar-
ship of $150 is awarded annually to a
woman student, considered deserving
by the Association.
The Levi L. Barbour Scholarships
for women from Oriental countries
provide $650 for each woman and a
cash scholarship allowance equiva-
lent to her semester fees. These
scholarships are awarded by the Bar-
bour Scholarship Committee.
Among scholarships awarded after
the woman student has completed
some length of time at the University
are the Ethel McCormick Scholar-
ships of $100, awarded each spring to
three women in the junior or senior
class on the basis of leadership in
women's activities, character, schol-
arship and need.
Dormitory Scholarships are award-
ed by the various dormitories on the
basis of good citizenship, scholarship
and need. They are occasionally
awarded to a new student whose cre-
dentials are exceptional, but, in gen-
eral, are intended to meet the need
of students who have already made
a record at the University. Martha
Cook awards three board and room
scholarships; Mosher-Jordan, four
scholarships of $100 each; Betsy Bar-
bour, two room scholarships and one
board scholarship; and Adelia Cheev-

greatest promise of developing into
a fine type of womanhood.
Aside from scholarships, there are
available to women several prizes for
work in various fields of study. The
