GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- Univer-
sity of Florida tighter admissions
policies have resulted in an in-
creased level of general ability
among freshmen, John V. Mc-
Quitty, Florida University's ex-
Results of the American Coun-
cil of Education (ACE) Psycholo-
gical Examination indicates that
freshmen scores have risen con-
stantly for the past eight years.
McQuitty's figures show a rise
from an average. score of 99.0 in
1950 to an average of 108.4 last
In two years the average has
risen 4.2 since the selective admis-
sions policy went into effect in
the fall of 1956. Beginning stu-
dents are now required to score
in the upper 60 per cent of their
high school class on placement
"Prospective stuaents with abil-
ity and background entirely in-
adequate to handle college level
work are now denied admission,"
he said. "Those with questionable
ability and background are frank-
ly told that the likelihood of suc-
cess is remote."
Comparing the ACE scores with
those of the freshman placement
tests, McQuitty said the average
of 104 compares with 70 on the
placement tests. "This means," he
continued, "that to be equal to
the University of Florida average
of 108, a high school senior would
have to average 75 on the five
placement tests." Therefore to be
above the average there, the pros-
pective freshman must be in the
highest quarter on the high school
ORONGO, Maine-Two major
changes in freshman rushing for
sororities have been initiated on
the University of Maine campus.
First, sororities will submit a'
listing of the freshman women
whom they wish to invite to their
first rushing parties.
This list may not consist of more
than 125 names. In the past any
freshman woman who had signed
up for rushing, through registra-
tion, could attend the* first-week
The second major change in-
volves the rushing period itself.
Upperclass women are now encour-
aged to go into freshman dormi-
tories and - meet the freshman
Under the old system, sorority
members were not allowed to asso-
ciate with freshmen in any way
that might seem that they were
attempting to "sell"-their own sor-
This new system drops formal
registration entirely. A "clearing
house" will be set up for the pur-
pose of providing a central place
where rushees can pick up invita-
tions and return their replies. This
clearing house will be manned by
two or three alumnae serving as a
type of council.
Invitations' will be sent to the
rushees for the first after-dinner
dates and the replies wiP be taken
