The committee also approved the ap- pointment of Ruth Fife as manager for next year. These matters will be sent to the Student Council for their approval at their next meeting. Public Performance This committee is working on. sev- eral projects all of which are intended to improve the general tone of the public programs as well as the pro- grams which will be presented in the auditorium in the future. For some time the storing of stage properties has offered a perplexing problem so the committee has started plans for providing a special room where these materials may be kept. The assembly programs for the remainder of tne year have been planned and various groups are now active in preparing theiir part. The student entertainment course for next year has doubtless been receiving the most attention, as several representatives of lyceum bureaus have been called in and offers for numbers are receiving considera- tion. Social Activities Discussion of the new rule regard- ing the extension of the study hour from 8 o'clock to 9:30, the new paint system and the matter of an extra day at Easter to allow students to return on Monday was taken up by this com- mittee last week. The matter of the change in the study hour has been before the student council and the facility at recent meet- ings and each returned the proposal tp the Social Activities committee with suggested changes. The com- mittee considered the proposed chang- es and have drawn up an amended proposition. This rule will not be- come operative until next September as there is considerable detail work which must preceed its operation. The following is the rule as amend- ed: The study hours in the houses shall be from 8 o'clock until 10; 30 o'clock on Monday, Tuesday, Wednes- day and Thursday and .should be strictly observed by all freshmen un- less given special permission toy the Dean of Women. Juniors are given a privilege of a 9:30 date on one school night a week for the movies or recrea- tion, while the seniors may have the 9:30 privilege on two school nights & week for the same purpose. The names of those students using the 9:30 privilege must be filed with the Deaft of Women on the next morning. These privileges would be denied any person whose scholastic work is not approved by the scholarship committee. Publicity The matter of the preparation of the mailing ]ist for the Normal Racquette was taken up at this meeting. As a result of this cooperation the complete list of some 700 names was prepared and made ready for the printer. Note- The Scholarship and Welfare com- mittees failed to report their activity.
