Booklet Gives
CIubs' News
A copy of the "League Low-
down", a booklet containing all
the pertinent information about
League activities, will be mailed
to every new coed before she ar-
rives in Ann Arbor.
The League Publicity Commit-
tee publishes the booklet every
school year for the purpose of ac-
quainting women with the wide
range of opportunities available
to them in the League. The pam-
phlet provides concise information
about the League organization, its
officers and current projects. The
booklet also contains the "low-
down" on all the traditions con-
nected with the League and its
many activities.
One section of the "League
Lowdown" is devoted to Panhel-
lenic and another to Assembly As-
sociation. Another feature is ref-
erence material such as the con-
stitutions of the League, Panhel-
lenic and Assembly Associations.
Knowledge of these constitutions
is essential for any coed who in-
tends to petition for positions in
any of these organizations.
One brand-new feature is sket-
ches of the first two floors of the
League. The floor plans are in-
tended to be a guide for all new
women who may need to locate
various meeting places in the Lea-
gue rooms during orientation
week and throughout the semes-
ter. Explanatory material ac-
companies the sketches.

and fourteen, during its two four
week periods.
Recently placed under the direc-
tion of the University Institute for
Human Adjustment, the camp
serves a three-fold purpose; to
remedy the abnormalities of small
boys, who have difficulty in ad-
justing to home environment, by
offering a vacationland among
.other youngsters; to supply refer-
ral agencies with infermation and
further guidance in the child's be-
havior; and to provide students
of sociology and education with
opportunity of theoretical class-
room work.
Originated 24 years ago as a
project -of the Student Christian
Association (an affiliate of the
Y.M.C.A.) the operation of the
camp was taken over by a self-
appointed, self-perpetuating com_
mittee under the ownership of the
Virginia R. Ives Foundation.
Under the direction of this com-
mittee, the camp functioned solely
as a vacation spot for underpriv-
ileged children, and was counseled
by students and other qualified
In 1935, by act of the Board of
Regents, the camp was placed
under the supervision of the Uni-
versity, thereby broadening its im-
mediate objectives to include rem-
edial and information services.
Under Institute Supervision
Recognizing the need for stu-
dents to have actual observance
of human behavior as supplement
to laboratory and textbook work,
the University, in January of this
year, made the camp a subsidiary
of the Institute for Human Ad-
Fifty students are employed
each summer as counselors, and
earn six hours of sociology credit.
With the duo-purpose of guiding
the children and gaining experi-
ence in their fields, the student-
counselors attend classes for half
the session serving as co-coun-
selors, and work as full fledged
counselors for the remainder of
the period.
Clinics are conducted on a mul-
tiple basis with sociologists, psy-
chologists, and psychiatrists all
contributing to discussion from
their aspect of a specific prob-

N ew Women Need Knowledge
Of Judiciary Residence Rules

One necessity for each new
woman on campus, as well as for
all other coeds, is a thorough
knowledge of residence rules for
These rules are available to
each student in the form of a
pamphlet published by the Wom-
en's Judiciary Council, and every
coed is responsible for knowing
and adhering to the campus reg-
li addition to stating the clos-
ing hours which must he main-
tained by every organized coed
residence, the pamphlet contains
information concerning signout
rules, special permissions, late-
ness, and penalties for violations
of the various rules.
Late permissions for week nights
are obtained from the Office of
the Dean of Women, and must be
received before 4:30 p.m. of the
day for which the permission is
desired. House directors are au-
thorized to grant late permissions
on week-end nights, but they may
grant week-night late permission
only in case of emergencies aris-
ing after the closing of the Dean's
Any lateness nflist be made up
at the rate of five-make-up min-
utes per minute of lateness, on
the Friday or Saturday night
'following the lateness. For ex-
ample, a coed who is two min-
utes late is required to sign in
at, or before, 12:20 p.m. on the
Friday or Saturday following
the lateness.
A lateness of less than 15 min-
utes beyond any late permission
whether an individual permission
or a late permission granted for

all those attending a certain 'cam-
pus event, must be made up at
the rate of 15 make-up minutes
per minute lateness.
When a coed is late, when she
makes up time, or when she is on
social probation, she must circle
the time of signing in on the sigi-
out sheet.
All house rules apply not only to
undergraduate women, but also to
graduate coeds living in under-
graduate houses. Copies of the
house rule booklet may be ob-
tained in the Undergraduate Of-
fice of the League.

Council is a member of the
League Council and the Execu-
tive Council of the League. She
also serves on the Board of Goy-
ernors* of the League, the Elec-
toral Board, and the Student
Affairs Committee.
In addition to heading the wore
of the Judiciary Council, she is a
member of the University Discip-
linary Committee and of the Ad-
ministrative Board of the Lit-
erary College.
The Judiciary Council meets in
the Council Room, which is one
of the Undergraduate Offices lo-
cated in the League Building.
Coeds having questions concerning
residence regulations may call
members of the Council, either at
the League or at their respective
residences, for information about
any of the campus rules.

As the campus gathers its beer
kegs and insect lotion and moves
indoors, a new recreation problem
follows them into the confines of
the dormitories and houses.
Unless the cosmopolitan stu-
dent will take nothing less than
the opera or the Latin Quarter,
he can usually find entertainment
of some sort about the University
campus. And unless he was
brought up in Sun Valley or Lake
Placid, the winter sports should
suit him.
Indoor Sports Predominate
Except for occasional skiing in
the Arboretum, the majority of
local entertainment will be indoors
for the winter months. The Uni-
versity operates its own ice skat-
ing rink, the Coliseum, with spe-
cial student rates which bring
skating to the level of a poor
man's sport.
University hockey and basket-
ball teams keep the sports fans
occupied during the colder part of
the year, not to mention the tra-
ditional football season. The prime
fault of the schedules is that they
run into each other almost every
Saturday night. Sports fans go
broke, so the old tale goes; wear-
ing out coins by flipping to see
to which game to go.
Limited Swimming Facilities
University men have a monopoly
on the winter aquatic facilities,
but for women the day will come
. . . for the, last 20 years a wom-
en's pool has been in the offing.
As it is, non-swimmers may take
an extended bath in the basement
of Barbour Gymnasium, where a
railing has been set. up around a
chip in the cement, which was sub-
sequently filled with water. As a
matter of fact, coeds find them-
selves with phenomenal ability .. .
with one magic stroke in any di-
rection they can zoom across the
crevasse to the other side.
Dancing will return to the fore
when Frank Tinker and his or-
chestra renew dancing at the
Union Friday and Saturday nights.
The League will again sponsor
weekend dances when the Campus
Casbah opens Sept. 26 in the ball-
Formal Functions Held
Traditional formal dances will
test anyone's dress attire, Two
Union formals will present them-
selves during the year, along with
the annual Open House. Slide
Rule, the Engineers' ball, sorority
and fraternity pledge formals, and
Senior Ball aPe a few of the tra-
ditions held yearly. Beside these,
women's houses hold private
dances, and fraternities will sub-
stitute record dances for beer pic-
The highlight of the season will

probably be J-Holb the-last of two
orchestra dances, and almost the
last of the dances to be held in
the Intramural Building. The HopI
is the only all-campus affair car-
ried out by an elected committee,
and carries on the traditional
dance held between semesters.
Outdbor Sports for Hardy
For the hardy, there are still
outdoor sports. Palmer Field- has
several concrete tennis courts
which can be used in any dry
weather, and roller skates may be
rented: at the Women's Athletic
Building. The city has golf links
and a riding stable; bicycles may
be rented at several local bike

If there is enough snow, there
will be outdoor skating on nearby
Barton Pond and at Burns Park,
and skis and toboggans will no
doubt make their annual appear-j
ance in the Arboretum.
May Festival, concert and lec-
ture series provide constructive,
recreation. Alec Templeton was
featured during the past year.
Collectively, sporting facilities
are usually good for a town the
size of Ann Arbor, and the Uni-
versity sports enthusiasts may,
find a good deal with which to
occupy himself. Too much, lie
might realize, come mid-semester

the Michigan League Building,
where a minimum of 15 hours
per week will be spent by each
in working in the cafeteria or
checking room. All 18 sororities
are cooperating by taking a
capacity number of women in
their houses. Ann Arbor resi-
dent members are required to
live at home.
There has been no change- in
the capacity of women's resi-
dences as compared to the past
year. While a few League- houses
have closed, there are approxi-
mately 75 such houses, in addition
to 12 supplementary graduate
A new supplementary house is
listed by the Office of the Dean
of Women this year for 12" foreign
women students.
