New Rushing
Rules Started
By Sororities
Compulsory Registration
At League Is Instituted
By Panhellenic Society
In an effort to reduce rushing ex-
penditures for all sororities, Pan-
hellenic Society yesterday revised its
rushing rules to provide that all wom-
en wishing to be pledged to a sorority
register at the League and pay a fee
of 50 cents.
It is hoped that the registriation
fee will tend to eliminate those who
do not intend to join a sorority,
thus cutting down the numbers the
sororities will have to entertain at
dinners, according to Dorothy Ship-
man, '40, head of the rushing rules
committee. Ann Kingston, '40 and
Pattie Haislip, '40, assisted Miss Ship-
To Pay Fees At Booths
It will not be necessary to be regis-
tered for the first .wo rushing teas,
but all women will Pave to pay their
fee before attending ariy rushing
dinner. The money will be used to
pay for painting a Panhellenic book-
let containing a picture of each soror-
ity house and a list of its members,
and to contribute to Panhellenic
The changes in the rules also pro-
vide for the establishment of a Pan-
hellenic Booth in the League during
Orientation Week. Registration and
payment of the fees will be made at
the booth, and all questions pertain-
ing to sorority rushing will be an-
swered there. Members of Panhel-
lenic Society will act as informants.
Revise Silence Period Rules
Revisibns in existing 'rushing rules
provide that the silence period be-,
gin the first day of Orientation Week,
and that the end of the silence period
between houses and women who re-
ceived bids be 9 p.m. Friday in the
third week of rushing. Silence period
for houses and women not bid will end
Sunday morning after pledging,, at
which time the informal rushing sea-
son will start.
Further changes in the rules make
the status of unaffiliated transfers,
and of pledges from the previous year
that of actives. These women will be
allowed to assist with rushing. For-
merly women whose pledgship had.
not expired were allowed to come to
their sorority only four times during
the rushing season.
