The New Deal
  Last semester the University revamped its registration
procedure, slicing the required student time and effort at
least sity per cent. Under the new system, students may
consult their advisers before the exam period, turn in ap-
proved study lists, and let the administration do the work
until registration day when students put in an appearance at
Memorial Library, fill out IBM cards, then deposit fees at
the Bursar's office. Gone are the days of endless queueing up
in Bascom Hall, the library, and the Armory, and running to
individual assignment committees.
  UW students contributed an estimated $600 in an all-
campus drive for Hungarian relief. The drive was spear-
headed by Wisconsin Student Association's International
Relations sub-committee which enlisted the aid of other
groups in publicizing the cause and making collections.
Robin Smith, National Student Association coordinator for
the drive, expressed hope of bringing a Hungarian student
refugee to campus.
Looking Up
  Shifting to the gridiron, Bill Gehler, junior from Men-
dota, Ill., is captain-elect of the 1957 Badger football team.
The 1956 co-captain, Dave Howard, senior from Mondovi,
received the Most-Valuable-Player award.
  The Wisconsin Country Magazine copped first place for
articles of interest to women at the annual convention of
Agricultural College Magazines Association in 'Chicago.
Micki Bommer is this year's editor. Writers of prize articles
are Nan Shepherd, Lorraine Frank, and Amy Grant.
  Something new was added to student government in
December -when Student Life and Interests (SLIC) sub-
                  Co-eds of High Fashion
Wisconsin Alumnus, January, 1957
committee on General Organizations and Politics held an
open hearing on the SLIC membership list policy. The
hearing was requested by Student Senate to determine opin-
ion on a SLIC ruling that would require student organiza-
tions to submit membership lists on request of the committee.
  This was the first hearing held under such circumstances
and the move elicited gratifying response.
Domestic Affairs
  A new Union committee has been formed to serve the
interests of married students who form 20 per cent of the
total enrollment. The group has held open house for inter-
ested students and plans future discussions on such topics
as finance and housing. A dance is tentatively scheduled for
the spring semester . .. and the beauty of it all: volunteer
workers provide free baby sitting service while parents attend
the functions.
International Relations
  An exhibit, "Student Life in the U.S.S.R.", came to the
I,- 'UI11 cAxiianIge ior a simuiar exniDit reaturing tine Uni-
versity of Wisconsin. The exchange suggested to WSA by
the Student Peace Center was arranged last spring. The 34-
poster display, depicting student life at the University of
Moscow, arrived here through the Russian embassy in
The Latest in Packaging
   Sixteen University coeds next month will show young
women how to best "package themselves" to meet the de-
mands of modern life. They are the models chosen to por-
tray the 1957 look in women's apparel at the Fashion Revue
to be staged in the Wisconsin Union Theater as one event
of an annual program honoring Wisconsin coeds to be held
on the campus Feb. 17-18.
