Next year a chairman of activities will be appointed to see that no girl carries more than 15 points. The students are in favor of the plan because it gvies opportunity to more girls for office holding, and lightens the burden on prominent girls likely to be elected to more offices than they can manage, Organizations are electing their now officers with the point system in mind.
