Miss Jean Hamilton resigned as Dean of Women in 1927, because of the very seriour illness of her mother in New York City.  Miss Hamilton has been on leave of absence from the University since last June.

Miss Hamilton came to the University as Dean of Women in 1922, succeeding Mrs. Myra B. Jordan, who is now Emeritus Dean of Women.

During Miss Hamilton’s absence the duties of the Dean of Women have been handled by three advisers of women, and this arrangement will be continued for the remainder of the year.

Quite An Innovation

In the absence of Miss Jean Hamilton,
former Dean of Women, who has
been granted a year's leave of absence,
a very interesting experiment in student management for University women is being worked out. The problems of the women students this year
will be handled by a committee of ad-
visors, consisting of Miss Alice Lloyd,
'16, Miss Beatrice Johnson, University
of Maine, '24, and Miss Grace Richards, who has been Assistant Dean of
Women for the past two years.
Norma Bicknell Mansfield, '26, is assistant advisor.

This arrangement will remove the
 responsibility from one person and
makes the decisions the agreement of
the committee.

For the first time in the history of
self-government at Michigan, all problems of rule violation will be brought
before a judiciary council composed
entirely of undergraduate women.
Members of the Advisory Committee
will help and suggest but will not be
present at the meetings of the Council.
