Housing
(Continued from Page 3)
If a girl would rather live in a
more homelike atmosphere, a
league house would probably be
advisable. These houses are su-
pervised residences, varying in
size from ten to 25 women. Some of
them do not serve meals, while
others provide one or two a day.
There are about 20 of these league
houses on campus.
Some women may find it neces-
sary to work part of their way
through college. The cooperative
houses are provided for such
needs.
Here, a woman works part of
each day for the benefit of her
house. Cooking, cleaning, yard
work or any of the other jobs en-
tailed with keeping a house are
all perfomed by the residents,
which helps pay for their room
and board.

Plhysical
Education
(Continued from Page 5)
freshmen, the teacher education
program for women planning to
make a career of physical educa-
tion and the recreational program
for all women interested in extra-
curricular activities.
Today Barbour gym, the Wo-
men's Athletic Building, Palmer
Field, and sometimes even the In-
tramural Building provide the
space for all these activities.
Plans are already drawn up for
a new women's swimming pool
which will be a part of a physical
education building to be built
across from the present Women's
Athletic building.
This addition is in step with the
department's policy to give Uni-
versity women the best physical
education program possible.

EASIER GRIND:
Carefully Planned Study
Essential To Adjustment

One of the biggest problems in,
a freshman's life is learning how
to study effectively.
If she is to get the most of her
college education, the coed must
learn to organize her social life,
and extra-curricular activities in
such a way that her studies are
not slighted.
* * *
A DEFINITE SCHEDULE for
studying is often found helpful to
the freshman in learning to get
her work done. Such a schedule
should set up reasonable lengths
*of time for study which allow
one's mind to get warmed up but
avoid excessive fatigue.
Some students find it espec-
ially hopeful to have a definite

.i

place to study. This spot should
be comfortable and well-lighted
and relatively quiet.
Learning to concentrate is often
very difficult. Some students find
it necessary to study in the library,
but it is a good idea to learn to
shut your mind to everything else
and just study.
* . *.
INTEREST in studies will prove
to be the greatest aid to concen-
tration. Finding relationships be-
tween the various subjects and
following up any idea that seems
interesting is often helpful.
In this way work will not be
just a dull grind, but will have
interest and meaning.
Another important factor in
scholastic success is the ability to
read rapidly and accurately. In
reading the assignments, try to
get the main thought out of each
section and re-state it in your own
words.
« , ,s
W HI L E READING, students
come across many words which
are unfamiliar. It is a good idea to
write these words down, look them
up and then make them a part of
the vocabulary.
Since a great deal of assign-
ments will consist of mempory
work, it is well to remember that
remembering should be based on
understanding.
If a person understands the ma-
terial as he learns it, review will
be simpler and there will be no
danger of memorizing the wrong
points.

What happens to students who
have always had secret ambitions
to be interior decorators? When
they come to the University, they
don their smocks and roll up their
sleeves, and Orientation Week
finds them faced with the prob-
lems of an amateur decorator.
The problem of making a "cub-.
icle" attractive and livable, how-
ever, is not only easy to solve, but
can be fun -as well.
* * * .
STUDENTS having roommates
will find that mutual efforts to-
ward "rigging up" a room make
the getting - acquainted process
much easier.
Colorful bedspreads can do
much to spruce up a room.
Plaids or "solids" are both popu-
lar choices, as well as the Mich-
igan-blanket spread.
Students bringing an old bed
cover from home may create that
"something-new-has-been-added"
effect by applying package dye and
some elbow grease.. The outcome
if the coed is successful at dye-
ing is a spread that fits in with
the color scheme.

IF A WOMAN is ambitious
enough to want to make her own
spread, extra material for match-
ing drapes is good.
The dorm drapes can not be
taken down, but, curtains may
easily be attached so that the
standard drapes °face the out-
side in accordance with the rul-
ing.
Pillows add brightness to any
room and may be scattered on the
bed, serving to convert it into a
daytime divan. Choices range
from large to smalls from squares
to circles, and from feather stuf-
fings to old socks-anything .will
serve the purpose. Reading pillows
are likewise handy to have for
study use.
BULLETIN BOARDS are almost
a "must" for tacking up current
snaps, dance programs or what-
have-you. These may be nothing
more than a piece of beaver board,
but those wishing to be fancy, may
decide to paint the board or cover
it with material which fits the
chosen color scheme, perhaps add-
ing a bit of ruffling along the
edge.

Some students even use the
magnetic boards to which sou-
venirs are attached by means
of magnetic attraction.
Rooms with the problem of an
ugly, 'unadorned wardrobe are not
chalked off as impossible. With
the aid of thumbtacks, a piece of
ruffling may be. stretched across
the top edge.
* . .
THE DOORS may be covered
with colorful blotters to which
numerous notices may be attach-
ed. This provides a good substi-
tute for a bulletin board.
When the lights go out books
must eventually find their way
to shelves of some sort, and the
variety of bookcases is great.
A wide window sill with the
books held in place by a brick
or k Michigan book-end is suf-
ficient.
Also easy to arrange is a "board-
and-brick" affair which consists
of alternate layers of bricks and
a board. These may besarranged
in several artistic styles. A few
students even use unassembled
bookcases which they have put
together themselves.
* * *
CHAIRS which look too grue-
so1m, whether due to dye or pro-
truding stuffing, may be changed
with ease into something more
desirable.
