Rushing Rules
Are Amended
By Panhellenic
Sororities To Have Choice
Of One Saturday Affair;
Silence Period Shorter
Several changes, including the
elimination of a crowded Saturday,
were made in the rules for the formal
period of sorority rushing yesterday
at a meeting of Panhellenic Associa-
tion in the League.
In place of both a dinner and
luncheon on the two Saturdays dur-
ing the formal rushing period, the
sororities will be given a choice of
either for the two weeks. This will
eliminate the confusion caused by the
two affairs and a football game all in
one day, Harriet Shackleton, '38,
president, explained.
To Eliinat Last Monday Dinner
Formal rushing will commence as
in the past, with initial teas being
held the first Saturday and Sunday
of the fall term. Dinners, formerly
held Tuesday and Thursday of the
first two weeks of the three-week
formal period, will be held Monday,
Wednesday and Friday of the first
/ two weeks with the dinner cn the
Monday of the third week being
eliminated. This is the only event on
the rushing calendar which is being
completely done away with, Miss
Shackleton said.
Another change in the rushing
schedule is the forwarding of the
formal dinners from Tuesday and
Wednesday to Monday and Tuesday
nights of the third week.
Silence Period Shortened
As a result of the above revision
the silence period will begin Wednes-
day o$ the third week. A shortening
of the silence period was also adopted
at the meeting. It will now run from
Wednesday to 6 p.m. Saturday, end-
ing immediately after the pledging
ceremonies S a t u rd a y afternoon
Freshmen will hand in their prefer-
ence slips Wednesday and the soror-
ities will also submit their lists to
the Dean's Office that same day. Bids
will come out Friday and pledging
will take place Saturday.
i It was decided at the meeting to
incorporate a map of the sororities
and vicinities in the Panhellenic rush-
ing booklet for freshmen. other
minor changes will also be described
in the pamphlet, Miss Shackleton
Revision Committee Named
The changes adopted by the soror-
ity representatives yesterday, were
drawn up by a committee on the re-
vision of rushing rules. The com-
mittee consists of Margaret Hamilton,.
'37, Jenny Petersen, '39, and Dorothy
Arnold, '39..
A prize will be awarded to the sor-
ority or fraternity showing the most
improvement in the appearance of its,
chapter house by the end of the se-
mester by the Ann Arbor Committee
oh Civic Improvement, according to
Mrs. Paul Leidy of that group.-
