"A girl must be wealthy and
have lots of clothes to join a
sorority."' ,
"It is important that a rushee
date 'important' houses or persons
on campus"
These are two false - rumors
typical of, those received during
the present rushing period, the
Leagge Undergraduate Office re-
ported. To keep such rumors from
circulating, the League operates a
rumor poard.
Report Rumors
Rushees report any rumors con-
cerning sorority houses or rush-
ing to their counselors. The coun-
selors post -these rumors and re-

the first set, of mixers begin to-
ight at 7 p.m.
Counselors have instructed their
respective rush groups to meet at

Rushees are to bring five mixer
cards with them, one for each of
the five houses they will visit.
y rDress for this set of mixers is

Each party will last 40 minutes,

Religious Office
Announces Chats
This week the Office of Reli-
gious Affairs introduced a new
"keep-acquainted" program.
"We don't want to lose touch
with students we met through our
Rendezvous programs and so we're
inviting them in for half-hour
chats whenever they find the
time," C. Grey Austin, assistant
co-ordinator of religious affairs,
To date, 45 students have re-
ceived invitations.

plies to them on the rumor board,
a bulletin board located outside
the office.
Following is a list of the rumors
and correct 'answers reported
through February'7:
(1) If for preferencing and final
bids a rushee has a house as num-
ber one and the house doesn't list
her on their first bid list, the
rushee has no chance of pledging
that house nor any other house
she put down in preferencing.
Mutual Choice
This is false, the rumor board
reported. Rushing is the oppor-
tunity for mutual choice of both
rushees and houses.
(2) A legacy is a girl whose
mother, sister or grandmother has
belonged to a certain sorority. She
is given the same consideration as
any other rushee, as no chapter
is compelled to bid legacies. This
is true.
(3) Because sororities had such
large quotas last spring, rushees
have less chance to pledge a house
this year.
Quotas Similar.
This is false, the answer stated.
In general, sororities have quotas
similar to those of last year.
(4) In order to pledge a soror-
ity, the rushee must have a high-
er scholastic average than the
University requirement.
The reply read, "Although a few
houses have higher scholastic qua-
lifications than the University,
most houses require 11 hours and
a 2.0 average to pledge."
Called False
(5) One member of a sorority
is capable of keeping a rushee out
of a sorority.
False, the statement said. There
is no blackball system in any
house on this campus.
(6) Upperclassmen are not
pledged unless they have a 2.5
average. This is false.
Nurses Exempt
(7) Sophomore, junior and
senior nurses do not count on sor-
ority quotas. Freshmen nurses,
however, are counted as part of
the regular house quota. This is
(8) Girls who are pinned or
lavaliered should wear them to

parties, because it is the qualities
of common interests, ideals and
rushee and sorority girl look for
pleasing personality that both
in friends, not the dating status.
This is true.
(9) Rushees with affiliated sis-
ters on campus will not have a
chance in any other house. This
is false.
When the rushees begin picking
up their invitations, the rumor
board will be moved into the
League ballroom for their refer-
