Sororities To Instruct Rusliees
In Integration Opportunities


Discussion of segregation be-
tween Negro and white students in
the Greek system will be' part of
sorority rushes instruction for the
first time this fall. Panhellenic
rush counselors will explain frank-
ly the responsibility which must
be undertaken by both rushees and
actives if a new climate is to
evolve, according to Joanie Ringel,
advisor to Panhellenic.
This year's formal sorority rush'
is geared, both structurally and
philosophically, towards providing
the rushee with a more realistic
opportunity for thoughtful choice

than last year's fall rush.
Rushees will learn that there,
are two all-Negro sororities on
campus. In the past, beacuse these
sorofities do not have chapter
houses, their members participated
in formal rush by using fraternity
houses to greet rushees. Because of
their small memberships, the Ne-
gro sororities could not handle the
size of the rush groups which
came through.
But this year Panhellenic is try-
ing to impress upon rushees that
neither discrimination nor over-
compensation is the answer to ra-
cial segregation.

"The two all-Negro houses on
this campus are integrated na-
tionally," said Mrs. Ringell, "so
there is no reason why they should
have to remain all-Negro here. But
while the Negro sorority girls are
eager for white rushees who are
sincerely interested in the house,
they would not want girls who
considered themselves civil rights
"By the same token we want
Negro rushees to know that there
are many more than two sororities
in which they could comfortably
"In other words," explained
Mrs. Ringell, "we want no epithett
