Women's League Composed
Of Three Separate Branches
(Continued from Page 1) i f

groups planning to sponsor charity
Room has to be allotted for the
functioning of each committee and
League project and the girls who
take care of this belong to the
House Committee.. Coordinating
League activities with building
calendars, they see the meetings
are set for the right time in the
right place. Maintenance of the
Library and Listening Rooms also
comes under their jurisdiction.
Works with Union
The International Committee
works with the Union each year
in planning the annual Interna-
tional Week and supervises the
American Sisters Program, pairing
international women students with
Every organization needs a group
of people to let the campus know
what it's doing - the Publicity
Committee. Members publicize
events and plans by keeping the
permanent "Diag Billboard" up-to-
date, writing, editing and publish-
ing the "League Lowdown" pamph-
let telling students how the League
is run and utilizingt letters, dis-
plays, posters and stunts to draw
attention to the League's efforts.
The League acts as spearhead
for all-campus activities under the
sponsorship of the women stu-
dents. Spearheading the spearhead
is the Social Committee which or-
ganizes the social activities pre-
sented by the League as a whole.
Social Committee
Assisting Mrs. Hatcher in pre-
senting the monthly student open
houses held at the President's
House is a major project for the
Social Committee. Among its other
responsibilities are the planning
of bridge lessons and Duplicate
Bridge Tournaments.
Informal dances throughout the
year, including those held in the
Snack Bar last spring, are planned
and presented by the members
along with the special weekly ball-
room dance classes held in the
League Ballroom.
The academic side of campus
life is not neglected, as the Tu-
torial Committee extends a helping
hand to women students in need
of it.
With a permanent file of tutors
on hand, the members can direct
the student whose studies are
troubling her to the proper per-
son. Members also welcome stu-
dents who wish to serve as tutors.
Special Events
While the Social Committee han-
dles the traditional social program
for the League, the Special Pro-
jects Committee focuses on a vari-
ety of "special occasion" events.
Each spring a Mother's Tea and a
Bridal Show give the women stu-

SUNDAY MORN - That's the title of the fountain standing
alongside the League Building. The fountain is in the center of
a plaza, affording a resting place before shows in Lydia Mendels-
sohn--and the fountain itself provides a place to throw excess

dents the opportunity to relax
from studies and look to the future
a bit.
The Bridal Show traditionally
'displays to prospective brides the
complexities of planning a wedd-
ing and honeymoon, providing tips
on everything from the type of
china to put on the gift list to the
clothes styles suitable for honey-
mooning in various parts of the.
The committee joins with the
Union each year to present Home-
coming Weekend and an all-cam-
pus talents show.
And, beginning a new tradition,
the members have planned an Art
Exhibit and Sale to be held out-
doors sometime in the early fall.
Freshmen Opportunities
Freshmen, while not serving on
the administrative committees, are
definitely not omitted from the
League structure. A training
ground for League leaders, the'
Buro-Cats consists of six com-
mittees, each under the leadership
of an upperclass chairman and
member of the Buro-Cat Advisory
The Buro-Cats meet periodically
en masse to hear campus leaders
discuss their organizations and
to become acquainted with the
diverse activities around campus.
The freshmen begin committee
work immediately, supplementing
and assisting the administrative
committees in their work and be-
coming familiar with the League
Plan Displays
The Art Committee, though not
all artists, spends its time in pos-
termaking, display-planning and
decorating the bulletin boards,



around the League which tell stuff
dents just what's happening.
This year, members will also be
helping on the Art Exhibit and
The Activities Committee re-
cords the activities of all the
women on campus while the Re-
ceptionist Committee greets those
who come into the Undergraduate
Office and gives information con-
cerning the building and League
Members of the Secretariat dom-
mittee do typing, stenceling and
telephoning for the League offices
and committees as well as doing
the correspondence for the Buro-
Cats. The Special Events Com-
mittee is responsible for special

The Service Committee, newly,
formed this year, hopes to sponsor
Christmas parties at the hospital
and initiate programs in this area.
New Function
Women's Senate, the second di-
vision under the League structure,
has a new function this year. Due
to 'the change in representation,
the Women's Senate is the only
body on campus that represents
both independent and. affiliated
Previously, senators from each
house and sorority were elected
independently. This year the As-
sembly Dormitory Council repre-
sentative from each independent
house and the second sorority rep-
resentative to Panhellenic Associ-
ation are also senators. "In thls
way," Sue Moag, '61, chairman of
Women's Senate, said "the Senate
can serve as an informative body
for all women on campus as well
as policy making body for both
affiliated and independent wom-
"This year," Miss Moag said,
"we hope to have discussions on
problems that concern both the
affiliate and the independent as
well as campus activities that
should be brought to the attention
of all women." One of the particu-
lar problems that Miss Moag sai
Senate would discuss this year
concerns apartments ,for upper-
class women.
Judic Coordinates
Women's Judiciary Council
serves as the coordinating agency
and appellate court for all subsidi-
ary house Judiciary Councils. At
weekly meetings held in the Judi-
ciary Room of the Ifeague, the
Women's Judiciary Council reviews
all reports submitted by all the
house Judiciary Councils and
hears cases involving major disci-
plinary problems.
The president of the Women's
Judiciary Council coordinates and
directs the work of the judicial
branch of the League. She also
serves as the Chairman of the
Women's Panel which is the high-
est women's court taking care of
the more serious offenses.
The League building itself has
numerous facilities which are for
the use of all women on campus.
Guest Rooms
The fourth and fifth floors are
operated as a hotel by the Busi-
ness Management to accommodate
guests. The League Library, located
on the third floor, is a quiet place
to study or listen to music in one
of the Listening Rooms.
The League Ballroom, located on
the second floor, is a place where
many dances are held during the
year. Other rooms on the second
floor are used for teas, rehearsals,
and meetings.
Also located on the second floor
at the north end is the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre. During the year
the Speech Department presents
all its productions here. The Dra-
ma Season series is also presented
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The snack bar and Round Up
Room is located in the basement of
the building. These rooms are fre-
quented by students at all times
during the day for coffee breaks
or lunch. There is also a regular
