Sororities To
Vote Today On
Rushing Rules
Panhellenic Meeting Will
Decide On Question Of
DeferredRushing
A final decision will be made as to
the feasibility of deferred rushing in
a general Panhellenic meeting at 4:15
p.m. today in the League. All sororities
will be expected to send representa-
tives to vote on the issue.
The proposed modifieation of the
present rushing rules suggests a two-
week deferment of the initial intens-
ive rushing period in the fall. In-
stead of opening simultaneously with
the semester, the new plan would
have all rushing postponed until two
weeks after classes have begun, al-I
lowing freshman women time to be-
come adjusted to college.
Betty Aigler, '35, president of Pan-?
hellenic, will preside at the meeting.1
A general discussion will precede the
vote. Dean Alice C. Lloyd will at-
tend and speak briefly in favor of the
amendment.
Another question to be brought be-
fore the meeting is the time of sub-
mission of initiation slips. Hereto-
fore the slips have had to be in the
dean's office within two days before
initiation. Now it is proposed to
submit them either one week or two
weeks ahead.

Honor Society
Hears Lecture
By Detroit Man
H. M. Merker, a member of the
Parke Davis and Company staff, De-
troit, was the guest speaker for the
regular meeting of Tau Beta Pi which
was held Tuesday night at the Union.
Mr. Merker chose "The Engineer and
Medicine" for the topic of his speech.
Mr. Merker brought several appli-
cations for, positions that had been
sent to him by various persons who
were seeking jobs. He read them to
the group, criticizing and approving
certain ones. He pointed out the im-
portant factors of a good applica-
tion. Included in his list were care-
fulness of grammar, spelling, the
form of the letter, and typing.
Mr. Merker spoke of the recent
improvement that has been shown
in business, using his present sur-
roundings, Parke Davis Co. and De-
troit, as examples. He said that all
fields of business are gradually pick-
ing up.
"College is an excellent foundation
for any business, but it doesn't give
sufficient experience," Mr. Merker
said. "In order to be successful it
is necessary to have something be-
sides book learning." Mr. Merker
went on to say that in engineering,
as in any other field, it is necessary
constantly to keep up on the subject.
This is best accomplished by reading
the current literature written by au-
thorities on the matter.
Supper was served at the Union
before the business meeting.
