Concerning Policies Affecting
League-Sponsored Programs
Housed in the Michigan League,
center of all women's activities, the
League Council is the central govern-
ing body for all women on campus.
Made up of the heads of all ma-
jor women's activities, the co-ordin-
ating body compromises 22 women.
All matters of policy and decision
coming before the Council are first
discused by the executive board. Their
recommendations and alternative
solutions are then passed on the
Council for final decision.

Formerly known as "Women's War
Council, the organization officially
readopted its earlier name last year
when the reconversion from war ac-
tivities became complete.
Ellen Hill, of Martha Cook, will
serve as president of the League
Council for the coming year. Miss Hill
was chairman of Assembly Recogni-

Beta, president of Panhellenic Asso-
ciation; Jean Clare, Martha Cook,
president of Assembly Board, and

president of Women's Athletic Asso-
ciation.
The position of hospital service was
created this year to replace the for-
mer job of personal administrator.
Olive Chernow, Martha Cook, will
hold the post this year, heading the
volunteer entertainment programs at
Percy Jones Hospital in Battle Creek,
and in wards in University Hospital.
The hospital'volunteer aid work, for-
merly Soph Project, will be handled

GleeClubOpen
To New Coeds
A proposed tour of other Univer-
sity campuses is one of the projects
to be undertaken this year by the
Women's Glee Club, a League activ-
ity which is open to all women on

campus.
Headed by Barbara Everett, Gam-
ma Phi Beta, the Club offers prac-
tice and experience in group sing-
ing with an opportunity for solo
work. Miss Marguerite Hood, of the
School of Music, directs the group.
Tryouts are held early in the fall
semester and all second semester
freshmen and undergraduate wo-
men are eligible to tryout for the
Club. Tryouts will be held again dur-
ing the Spring semester for the bene-
fit of women entering school this

Judiciary Body
Has Two-Fold
Task This Year
Headed by Jean Louise Hole, Pi
Beta Phi, Women's Judiciary Com-
mittee will continue its two-fold task
of supervising the interviewing and
petitioning system and enforcing
house rules.
Posts on the League Council, jun-
ior positions in the League, Assem-
bly and Panhellenic board positions,
and all class project heads are ap-
pointed by Judiciary through peti-
tions and interviews.
The committee consists of Car-
olyn Newburg, Martha Cook, sec-
retary; Harriet Shinnick, Delta
Delta Delta, senior member; and
Betty Hahnemann, Sue Lunden
and Jo Reuland, junior members.
Sophomore aids to the Council are
Eleanor Hoffmaster, Harriet Fried-
man, Lois Jean Hall, Dulcie Kras-
nick, and Eileen Scanlon.
Before any petitioning is sched-
uled, the Judiciary Committee holds
a meeting for all those who are eli-
gible for. the project in question and
at that time explains the proced-
ure and the qualifications necessary
for the positions.
The .petitions which incorporate
the applicant's ideas for the posts
plus any special qualifications she
has for the job are due one week
after the opening of petitioning has
been announced in TheDaily. The
applicant then signs for an inter-
view at which time she explains fur-
ther her definite plans for the job
in question.
After consideration of all appli-
cants, Judiciary submits its recom-
mendations to League Council for
approval.
In its capacity as a "court," Ju-
diciary Committee hears all the
cases of infringement of house
rules recommended to it by house
directors and the Office of the
Dean of Women.
According to Miss Hole, each
freshman woman will be given a
pamphlet of house rules during ori-
entation and each woman in the
University is responsible for know-
ing and abiding by the house rules.
"Any violation of the rules due to
not knowing the rules will be hand-
led as any other violation," she
added.
Of special importance to fresh-
men is the rule that freshmen are
not given automatic late permission
for University sponsored events dur-

Women's Staff
Needs Workers
The staccato of typewriters, the
click of the teletype as the news
comes in, the thrill of hearing the
sharp series of bells when big news
comes over the wire, and the roar of
rolling presses all go to make up the
unique atmosphere at The Daily.
There's more to a women's page
than weddings and engagements-
plenty more. Fashions and social af-
fairs now are crowded off the page
by news and features on campus pro-
jects. Student reporters and editors
complete every step in the process of
putting out a paper.
Opportunities Limitless
The Daily women's staff offers an
opportunity to gain a toe-hold in
campus activities. Members of the
staff learn to know people, and more
important, people learn to know them.
Tryouts write assigned stories and
work on the editor's desk one night
each week, writing heads and rewrit-
ing copy. As soon as tryouts grasp the
fundamentals, they are automatical-
ly promoted to sophomore staff.

Beats are assigned and sophs con-
tinue to work desk until they are
ready to tryout night edit a page.
Night editorship, a paid position,
is the next step toward the top. Night
editors make up one page a week,
check heads, and prepare the page
for publication. Two senior positions,
women's editor and associate, are
open to qualified women.
Experience Unnecessary
Experience is not necessary to try-
out for the women's staff, but wo-

Central Organization
Heads 20 Sororities
Panhellenic Association is the cen-
tral organization which governs ap-
proximately 1000 affiliated women,
members of the 20 sororities on the
Michigan campus.
Headed by Margaret Gage, Gamma
Phi Beta, the Panhellenic Executive
Board is made up of six women. Bet-
ty Pritchard, Pi Beta Phi, will serve
as first vice-president, and Louise
Patrick, Alpha Phi, as second vice-
president. Secretary for the coming
year is Monna Lee Clark, Alpha Omi-
cron Pi. Lois Cothran, Alpha Chi
Omega, is Panhel rushing secretary,
and Patricia Pontius will be treas-
urer.
Weekly meetings of chapter pres-
idents and delegates, sponsored by
Panhel, provide opportunities for
group discussion of house prob-
lems concerning activities and
scholarship, as well as a means to
contact houses with announce-
ments of League and campus func-
tions.
Improvements in rushing systems,
active participation of sorority wom-
en in campus activities, cooperation
with Assembly and more efficient
integration within Panhellenic itself
are the major aims of the Associ-
ation. Open forums are occasionally
held in which suggestions for the
betterment of the governing body
are received. Recommendations
which came out of the forum last
year have been incorporated in the
plans for the coming semesters.
In addition to the meetings of
house delegates, rushing chairmen
from all houses meet to formulate
formal rushing rules. Regulation of
rushing is the primary executive pur-

lished in 1932 to provide a central
group representing unaffiliated wo-
men.
Membership cards, issued to all.

Beckon Future
Coed -Leader's,
If you wagon is hitched to a star
or if the term BWOC strikes musical
chords on your ears or if campus ex-
tra-curricular activities have a magic
appeal for you, then you will find
that Michigans many honor societies
are looking in your direction.
Alpha Lambda Delta
Most of the honor societies are for
junior and senior women although
'freshman women are eligible for
membership in one honor society, Al-
pha Lambda Delta. Members are
chosen on the basis of their scholastic
achievements only, requirements be-
ing half A's and half B's in the first
semester. Other purely scholastic
achievements such as Phi KappaPhi
or Phi Beta Kappa are attained only
by those juniors and seniors who
really have solved the mysteries of
Ec. 51 or English 2.
Of course, the societies which rec-
ognize BWOC's also have scholastic
requirements. Mortarboard, national
honorary society for senior women,
has a scholastic record of 3. above
campus average for a standard re-
quirement. Other than this, its mem-
bers are chosen on the basis of ser-
vice in campus activities and char-
acter. Members wear a miniature'
mortarboard of black and gold as
their pin.
Senior Society, Scroll
Unaffiliated senior women are eli-
gible for membership in Senior So-
ciety, while sorority women may be
elected to Scroll. These three so-
cieties have as their main function
that of service to the campus as a
whole. For instance, in past years
Mortarboard members tutored re-
turning veterans in difficult sub-
jects. Senior Society works in close
cooperation with Assembly.

ly by junior women. They will also
