Greek system hosts informal rush

70years ago this week
(Nov.12,1944)
Due to a drop in membership
caused by conditions during the
Second World War, the Pan-Hel-
lenic Board announced that sev-
eral houses including Alpha Delta
Pi, Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi
Delta and Zeta Tau Alpha were
approved to hold an informal
rush process.
Excluding first-semester fresh-
men, transfer students and eligible
women were allowed to attend the
three-day event held in the Under-
graduate Office of the Michigan
League.
The Pan-Hellenic Rushing
Regulations were strictly upheld
duringthe informal rush process.

40years ago this week
(Nov.15, 1974)
University enrollment of
Black students declined from
7.3 percent to 7 percent over
the course of an academic year.
These numbers fell short of the
10-percent mark set in place by
regents in 1970 following the
Black Action Movement (BAM)
strike.
Opportunity Program Direc-
tor George Goodman said the
University could be "reasonably
expected" to meet this quota by
the 1975-76 academic year. The
regents promised to the meet
this 10 percent mark by the fall
of 1973.

20 years agothis week
(Nov.14,1994)
The Wolverines came out
victorious in their game against
the Minnesota Gophers, earning
the Little Brown Jug for the
eighth consecutive season with a
score of 38-22.
The team was down 15-7 at the
end of the first half, but came back
in the second half behind three
touchdown passes by quarter-
back Todd Collins. Collins set the
Michigan single-game passing
record with 352 yards in the air.
With his second score of the
game, Wheatley set a new Michi-
gan career scoring record of 318
points.

This year marks
100th anniversary
of the beginning of
the 'Great War'
LONDON (AP) - Queen Eliz-
abeth II honored fallen soldiers
from Britain and the Common-
wealth Sunday in a dignified
ceremony at the heart of cen-
tral London.
The 88-year-old monarch
placed a poppy-laden wreath at

the foot of the Cenotaph, built
after World War I to remember
those who lost their lives.
Large crowds, including a
leather-lunged enthusiast who
managed to shout "Hooray"
loudly enough to be picked
up by national television,
thronged the surrounding
streets on a cold, clear day in
the capital.
The "annual ceremony
remains a national focal point,
much as it was when Elizabeth
was a young princess. There
is the mournful symphonic

music, the march of around
10,000 veterans, and the sense
that Britain and much of the
Commonwealth has come to
a halt to recognize those who
have lost their lives in battle.
Prime Minister David Cam-
eron called this year's event
particularly poignant because
2014 marks the 100th anniver-
sary of the start of World War
I. He also cited the 70th anni-
versary of the D-Day landings
and the conclusion of Britain's
military operations in Afghan-
istan.

experienced the harm," she said.
However, she said she liked
the idea of getting students
more involved in education and
empowering their peers - one
idea along those lines was a type
of "guerilla campaign" where
students would flyer and give out
stickers across campus. She also
advocated strongly for bystand-
er intervention intiatives and
improving training for students
so they feel comfortable stepping
into a situation if necessary.
Rider-Milkovich said other

areas that need improvement
are SAPAC education on North
Campus and reaching out more
to male survivors, students with
disabilities and veterans, among
others.
Art & Design senior Anica
Presley, a member of the CSG
Assembly, attended the event and
said sexual assault prevention is
a topic she has been interested
in for a while, particularly in
light of recent events on campus.
She said she innds to return to
future meetings, hoping to bring

some of the new ideas back to her
school.
Presley said art installations
can actually be a good outlet
to share experiences for survi-
vors - she gave the example of
whiteboards where people are
welcomed to contribute. She said
it promotes anonymity and typi-
cally creates better discussion.
"I definitely will follow up on
the guerilla intervention," she
said. "Unannounced art work can
be really influential in how peo-
ple interact with the space."
