When space is not available else-
where, work on decorations and pos-

other activity which meets here is
the Tuesday duplicate bridge session.
The Mary B. Henderson Room on the
third floor serves the same purposes.
7-11 Club Is Open
Another of the advantages offeredj
students is the 7-11 Club. which is
open every Friday and Saturday
night. At no cost, students may gath-
er, on the second floor of the bil-
ding, for bridge or dancing to thet
music of a nickelodeon. Shortly after
the start of the winter session, the
Club will be open for an afternoon, to
honor the freshmen. New students
are extended a special invitation to'
enjoy these privileges. Students may
come with or without partners, for'
there will be an opportunity to meet'
other members of the class.

and Panhellenic and Assembly Balls.
Setting aside these rooms especially
for such work removes the necessity
of storing materials away each day to
make room for other activities.
Stocked with 2,400 of the latest
popular-type books and magazines,
the library for women on the third
floor is a much-used facility of the
League. In this panelled room, deep,
easy chairs abound, and women have
in the past found it a restful place.

To Teach Braille
Another unusual course offered as
