The Primrose Path
The best stop along the Path this week-end was undoubtedly the Beta
formal . . . an orchid to the committee and an extra one to the music
chairman . . . that was the best band that has entertained Ann Arbor
dance lovers in many long months . .. smooth flowing rhythm and snappy
arrangements and how they play the "Sugar Blues" . .. The ballroom wasn't
too crowded and it gave everyone a chance to tryout the latest trick steps ---
saw some wonderful exhibitions of smooth dancing ... good enough for any
floor show -. -
The Beta D.ane...
There were many beautiful formals at the dance Friday . ..this was the
first chance the women had to sport their latest fall gowns ... Hope Hartwig
looked stunning in velvet with two rows of white lace all the way down the
front ... Sally Pierce attended with Milton Halliday . . Sally was wearing
a striking red moire with a full flaring skirt ... Marion Fitzgerald was there
with Fied Cushing and Harriet Heath and Stek McCollum, passed by on
their way upstairs ... Among the dancers on the floor we noticed Theresa
Jaycox and Howard Carroll ... and Russ Cole was with Dora Ann Day. .
We never saw a band that was so enthusiastically received . . . Everyone
cheered for encores after every dance . . .
Seated in the hallway between dances we noticed Barbara Heath and
Phil Newman and on the next couch were Bob Garrels and Mary Skinner ...
They were enjoying cigarettes between the dances . .. Mary Rall and Bud
Lundall also found the soft seats in the hallway a good place to rest
a moment . . . Lee Shinar had Miriam Robertson as his guest for the
evening and Phil Ludtke was with Reed Alexander . . . All in all it was a
smooth party ... P.S. A hint to the girls: When dressing for the Union For-
mal remember the Candid Cameraman has a huge bright light at one end of
the hall.
The League was well crowded Friday . . . Maybe the lack of Fraternity
dances accounted for the huge gatherings at the favorite dance spots of
Ann Arbor . .. The Theta Chi's had several tables and among the crowd we
saw Bessie Roosa and Bob Sadler, Maxine Nelson and Paul Krans . .
farther down the line Bill Sheehan and Marie Eichelberger were talking to
Elaine Cobo and Bob Davison . .. Jack Porter and the little southern girl
Ella Stowe sat near Marie Mette and Howard Crusey . . . others with the
Theta Chi's were Betty Shirk who was with Walker Graham and
Mary Jane Field with Watson Gilpin . . .

Survey Of New
Rushing Rules
Is Conducted
Daily Questions Sororities
And Pledges Concerning
Deferred Rush Plan
A survey is being taken by The
Daily to determine the attitude of the
sororities and rushees concerning the
new system of rushing put into effect
this year on campus.
The Daily wishes to find out how
successful the longer period of rush-
ing has been or whether the shorter,
more concentrated system is pre-
ferred. In former years the period
covered two weeks with a dinner held
every night. Under the new rules
adopted for the first time this year
by the Panhellenic Association rush-
ing was carried on for three weeks,
with dinners held three times a week
plus one luncheon each Saturday.
Contact Sorority Members
Sorority members are being con-
tacted and votes taken to determine
which system is preferred in the va-
rious chapters on campus. Any sug-
gestioris that might be offered by the
houses will be welcomed by The Daily.
Another problem which will be cov-
ered by the survey is the question of
deferred rushing. This would post-
pone all rushing until the second se-
To Distribute Questionnaires
Questionnaires will be handed out
at the freshman lecture tomorrow in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre to
all pledges and rushees to determine
their opinion on the new rushing sys-
tem and deferred rushin
