An increase of women in resi-

will acquaint the students with
the resources on campus, social

supplement class work.
Although the function of the
counselors will not be academic,
they will be able to carry out
study plans students are advised
As well as individual advisors,
the counselors will also serve as
group advisors to a student com-
mittee on matters such as ath-
letics and extra-curricular activi-
ties. According to Associate Dean

will handle the types of problems
that would be discussed with a

in a large part talking out a prob-

The system is planned with
the idea of personal contact with

RECREATION facilities are pro-

a juke box and ping pong table is
set up outside the ballroom.
Women's Judiciary Council,
headed by Audrey Robinson also
continues in the summer. Miss
Robinson is assisted by Betty
Kuusisto and Agnes Wadell. The
main purpose of the council is
to uphold campus regulations
and to aid the students in a
better understanding of campus
The air conditioned atmosphere
of the League Library offers a
comfortable place in which women
students may study. The hours are
from 1 to 5:30 p.m. and 7 to 10
p.m. during the week and 2 to 5
p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
The Library is under the direction
of Jo Wilson, who said that so far
this semester it has not been
crowded and that a quiet, living
room atmosphere is provided.
Any questions or suggestions for
additional student projects should
be brought to the League Under-
graduate Office where they will be
more than welcome.

YESTERDAY, I viewed the
points of interest in this fasci-
nating old city as the traditional
tourist to Quebec. The narrow
winding streets, each on a dif-
ferent level, filled with horse and
buggies and laughing brown-eyed
children, quaint shops filled with
hand-made merchandise and the

Dancing enthusiasts will have
little cause to worry about losing
their smooth technique during the
summer session as they have a
chance to keep in step with the
music of Del Elliott and his or-
chestra, who are occupying the
bandstand at the League every
Friday and Saturday night.
Elliott and his men are well ac-
quainted with favorite campus
music as they have provided the
musical background for numerous
dormitory, fraternity and sorority
dances for several years. They
have also played at Michigan State
Normal College and for high school
Elliott organized his band wrile
in school before the war. He re-
zeived his Bachelor's degree in
Music Education and minored in
music theory at the University

BUT THAT WAS yesterday! To-
day I feel less like a tourist and
more like someone about to leave
on a long journey. Sandy and I
