contact a freshman.
On Friday each rushee will get
from the office of the dean of stu-
dents a preference list, on which he
will list the fraternities he prefers in
order of their desirability. He is to
mark this list outside of the office
and return it the same day. Fra-
ternities turn in their lists the same
day, listing the men in order of pref-
erence and stating a definite quota.
Over that weekend University em-
ployees and Interfraternity Council
officials compare preference lists of
rushees and fraternities and on Mon-
day the results are made known to
the fraternities and the prospective
pledges. The men are formally
pledged at dinner Monday night thus
bringing to a close the period of sil-
ence and the task of fall rushing.

League houses. Houses accommodat-
ing less than eight girls were omitted
from the tabulation.
Women students retained their
scholastic advantage over men stu-
dents by a 78.2 to 75.8 margin. Fra-
tern ities and sororities again were
ahead of independent men and
women with an average of 77.8 to the
independents' 76.4.
In the scale which has been used
in compiling the scholarship record

equals 50 per cent, and E equals 20
per cent.
All grades earned by ineligible or
dropped pledges have been omitted

*Medical, Law, and Dental students
are not included in the starred
groups. Because of lack of uniformity
between the grading systems in the
professional schools and those in the
nonprofessional schools of the Uni-
versity, it seems advisable to consider
Medical, Law, and Dental students
as separate groups. The comparison
of these schools, either with each
other or with the rest of the Uni-
versity, is not significant.
