Nelson Praises
Foreign Student
Orientation Plan
The Orientation program for for-
eign students, sponsored by the In-

ternational Council last week,
proved very successful, according to
Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson, adviser to
foreign students.
The program, which was optional
to the students, was atttended by 25
to 50 students daily. This included
new arrivals on campus and repre-
sentative students from various na-
tional groups.
Professor Nelson reported that the
foreign student group is obviously
smaller this year due to the fact that,

Union Surrenders;
New Ta Room
Opened To Women
Time marches on, and its most re-
cent step brings a new privilege for
women in the Union. I
Manager Stanley Walz has an-
nounced that the new extension of
the taproom, which has been built
where the bowling alley used to be,
will be opened to women from 10 p.m.
to midnight every Friday and Satur-
day. For 17 years, Michigan women
have been excluded from this room,
and, although their admission to the
new section does not include the orig-
inal taproom, it is at least a definite
Father Time, dragging his long
white beard behind him, may take
another chop with his scythe at the
standing traditions in the future.
Some day, women may be permitted
to march proudly through the now-
forbidden front door of the building.

Knight C Da te
And thus passed the first week of a college career . . . weary and foot
sore but with a whole book full of knowledge (with still a bit of bewilderment
here and there) put safely away in the back of your mind . . . you probably
feel that the entire University is right under your thumb . .. and that you
could start passing out advice yourself to most any "newcomer to campus"
... better not do it. . . the life of an adviser isn't so pleasant and easy as you
may think . . . just ask one if there is the slightest doubt in your mind .
, But it's been fun, you will admit . . . there's nothing like it in the rest
of your days here (anyway, you're hoping not) . . . but don't regret one
moment spent, even though you felt like the "greenest" freshman alive ...
there were some advisers who were quaking in their shoes that first
Monday morning when you freshmen and transfers were about to descend
upon them . . . Margaret Ferries, in charge of all advisers, had so many
adviser's queries to answer she was going mad . . . I think she began to
doubt if they were really upperclassmen . . . and Betsy Baxter was having
her troubles with the transfers, finding all their necessary blanks and con-
soling them when they came back from Miss Corbin's office with long tales
of woe ... "at least sixteen hours credit gone and to think of all that work
gone to smash" .. .
Hundreds Were Milling Around...
The Alumnae Room in the League seemed suddenly obscure Monday
morning . . . freshmen just couldn't seem to locate it . . . we caught a
glimpse of Bunny Arner passing out tips galore at information desk .
simply hundreds of girls were milling about the place . . . Marian Norris
and Janet Dickinson seemed to be in quite a quandry about finding their

For Pledging
By Sororities
Minnesota Football Game
Causes Postponement;
Silence Is Continued
6 P.M. Ceremonv
Set By Panhellenic
Pledging will take place at 6 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 16, instead of at noon,
as was stated in the rushing rules,
Harriet Shackleton, '38, president of
the Panhellenic Association, an-
This change was made because of
the Minnesota football game which'
will be played that day in Ann Arbor.
Formerly pledge day started at noon
and the ceremony took~ place at 3 p.m.
This year the pledges will be called
for by the sorority women at 5:45
To Hold Formals Oct. 11 And 12
The formals will take place this
year Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 11
and 12. Last year they were held
Tuesday and Wednesday of the last
week of rushing. Therefore the ab-
solute silence period will begin at
9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12. This
period will be of shorter duration this
year as it will close at 6 p.m. pledge
day, Miss Shackleton said. Formerly
silence lasted until 9 a.m. the Mon-
day following pledging.
Miss Shackleton stressed the fact!
that sorority women are not allowed
to talk to any independent, whether
she is eligible for rushing or not, ex-
cept during the times of the sched-
uled rushing parties. Also no sorority
woman may enter a dormitory dur-
ing the period of rushing. Rushees
may not have men call for them after
a rushing party. There will be a
penalty for any broken rule, Miss
Shakleton warned.
Rushees May Make Calls
Rushees are asked to call the sor-
orities if there is any mixup about
dates, Miss Shackleton said, for they
are allowed as many calls as they
wish and the sororities are limited
to three for each rushee. Also, rushees
may obtain information about such
matters as the dues and fees for par-
ticular sororities at the Dean of
Women's office.
A new feature this year is the en-
closement in the freshmen pamphlets
of a map with the sorority houses
marked to help the rushees find the
various houses, Miss Shackleton
pointed out. Rushing pamphlets may
be obtained at the Undergraduate
Offices in the League.
Churches Begin
As Year Begins
Baptist Guild Has Dinner;
Dean Kraus Speaks At
Student Gathering
Sunday marked the initiation of
fall student church activities in most
of the Ann Arbor churches.
Dean Edward H. Kraus was the
main speaker of an inter-guild rally
at 8 p.m. Sunday in the Congrega-
tional Church which was sponsored
by the Student Groups of Protestant
The Roger Williams Guild held a
get-together dinner at 6 p.m. Thurs-
day in the First Baptist Guild House
to discuss plans for the coming year.

A mixer for new students given Fri-
day night featured the signing of
autograph books. A short meeting
especially for Freshmen was held at
6 p.m. Sunday with welcoming
speeches by the officers of the group.
The usual fellowship hour following
the meeting and refreshments were
omitted in order that those attend-
ing might go to the rally.

Hughes was having her troubles, no end of them . . . the
academic counselors were certainly a boon to humanity
that first day ... Professors Long and Davis were on the
job at 9 a.m. to start as academic counselors . . . and
there was no intermission in consultation hours for the
rest of the morning . . . Ruth Davis and Betty Hall were
sitting in line trying to fill blank after blank just to
get some of their many signatures down in advance . . .
Bobbie Chissus lad her hands full helping all her group,
