If omen iF ill Be Held Today In League

Urge Alumnae
Of Sororities
To Be Present
Revision Of Rushing Rules
To Be Discussed; Dean
Alice LloydWill Attend
Sorority alumnae are requested to
attend the mass meeting of affiliated
women which will be held at 4:30 p.m.
today in the ballroom of the League,
Barbara Bassett, '40, president of
Panhellenic Association, said yester-
The meeting which is the second
of its kind to be held this year, is be-
ing called for the purpose of discuss-
ing revisions in the rushing rules
which will go into effect next year.
Plan Shortens Rushing
Dean Alice Lloyd will attend the
meeting and Miss Bassett will preside.
Suggestions for changes in the rush-
ing rules for next year include the
proposal of shortening the period of
formal rushing to 13 days starting
Saturday, Sept. 22. It is also pro-
posed to change rushing parties from
dinners to dessert affairs, with cor-
responding changes in the hours.
Another suggestion which is made
with the purpose of cutting down
rushing expense is to eliminate paid
musicians except for the two formal
parties. Rushing will be held every
day during the 13-day period, with
sororities given the alternative of
having a luncheon or supper Satur-
day, Sept. 30, and breakfast or tea
Sunday, Oct. 1.
A change in rules for registration
would make it necessary for rushees
to be registered with the Association
before being rushed or bid during the
informal rushing season as well as
the formal.
Fines System Suggested
A system of fines has been worked
out by means of which rules will be
inforced. Fine A levies social proba-
tion on the individual for a period
of two weeks., fine B for four weeks,
and fine C social probation for the
whole house for two weeks following
the close' of the formal rushing
Alumnae will not be permitted to
contact rushees during the rushing
period, and sororities are made re-
sponsible for all infractions of this
rule which are made by their alum-

Will Conclude
Debate Series
Zenovia Skoratko, Dorcas
Corrin To Oppose Jean
Maxted, Martha Taylor
The result of the inal debate of the
women's intramural series at 3 p.m.
today in the. Grand Rapids room of
the League is unpredictable, Mrs.
Frederic O. Crandall, faculty adviser
for the contest, said yesterday.
In former debates in the series
teams upholding the affirmative side
of the question have won six times,
while negative teams have won twice.
The subject for all the contests has
been, "Resolved: that intercollegiate
athletics should be subsidized."
The contestants in today's debate
are Zenovia Skoratko, '40, and Dor-
cas Corrin, Grad., of Alumnae House
and Jordan Hall, dnd Jean Maxted,
'41, and Mary Martha Taylor, '41, of
Martha Cook. In the third debate of
the series, Miss Skoratko and Miss
Corrin taking the negative side of the
question defeated Miss Maxted and
Miss Taylor. Today Miss Skoratko
and Miss Corrin will defend subsi-
dization. This reversal of arguments
will be a real test of the debaters'
skill, Mrs. Crandall said.
Since this is the final debate of
the series sponsored b!i the Under-
graduate Council of the League, tea
will be served following the contest.
All those who attend are invited to
remain for the tea.

Tarty Line
By the Neighbora
If our senses haven't deceived us again, Spring has really come to
spend a few days in A2 before the torrid summer weather arrives to cheer
up those pre-final cram sessions. With the balmy breezes came a sudden
exodus to the Arboretum of great hordes of students, all afflicted with
acute cases of spring fever.
Martha Scott and Bob Sadler were out for a walk Sunday as were
Barbara Dittmann, Charlotte Robinson, Jack Moehlman and Dick Knowe.'
Ah, sweet mystery of life! And everyone seemed to go riding, too. Bill Gram
and Jane Venell were racing out the
river road trying to put gaited horses
through their paces. Near the Huron Hills
-- golf course we saw Mari Eichelberger on
a huge horse gazing up to the top of a hill
where Tom Keppelman's mount had sud-
denly been afflicted with spring fever
and refused to budge.
The less athletically inclined stoog-
ents who stayed around campus for the
weekend were enjoying themselves at numerous fraternity and sorority
dances. The Gamma Phis had a radio dance Saturday night to celebrate
the arrival of a lovely new "vic" that plays ten whole records without ever
touching the thing. Ruth Fitzptrick and Bob Wheaton were in a huddle
with Marge Neafie and Chet Shelly over the next batch of recordings to
be played while Bette Meyer and Butch Brink seemed most interested in the
ginger ale and cookies. Bobbie Chissus and John Parker leaned against
a lamp for support as whoops of laughter accompanied by a spring dance
were delectably rendered by Ginnie Schwegler and Bob Buchner.
Friday night the Phi Delts had a dance, if it may be called that, called
the Hobo Hobble. Barb Backus and Jim McNichols were having a wonderful
time dodging straw that people seemed to be tossing about the house. The
house was carefully barricaded, all except a back window through which
Lee Hardy fell rather ungracefully into a pile of straw. She claims she
slipped but her date, Charlie Ross, says he gave her a shove, just to see her
surprise when she landed on the straw. H. J. Dean, sporting a raddish
corsage, was watching people fall in through the window with Gene Bowles,
the man of the patched pants. Izzie Balfour and Bob Hotchkiss were cast-
ing admiring eyes in the direction of Marg Dodge's overalls. They were
really beautiful ones too, and gave the true hobo atmosphere to the dance.
Later in the evening we saw Marg, Bob McKenzie, Ruth Urmsted and Bob
Fry holding forth in one corner with a bit of barn dancing. They are quite
accomplished at the art, too.
On to the Union for Newman Club's spring formal where we saw Bill
Sherzer and Betty Fariss watching the orchestra broadcast with great in-
terest. Mary Call and Norber Winn were teasing the nominees for the
club's offices by theats of making them give a speech.
Out in the hall Kay DeVine, Joe Adams, and Reed Phal-
an were admiring Bea Devine's lovely tan from four
weeks in the South. All we can say is just watch us
and when the first pink of sunburn goes we'll have one
too. At the door of the Union, the front one, too, Betty
Durocher and George Paul were having difficulties with
Betty's veil. The weather was playing freak, with a
small sized cyclone at tnat point.
Juniors On Parade at the League attracted Mary
Ferguson, Charlie Kessler, Ginny Ward and Dud
Scrogin Friday night to wtach Ann Arbor's young dancing talent go through
ts routines. Following the production that night we found numerous Phi
Gams and their dates dancing in the ballroom. Among them were Jack
Gelder, Annabel Van Winkle, Ed Trip, and Mary Honnecker

Makes Urgent Request
A plea is going out from the game
room of the League for any freshman
woman who has an eligibility card to
join the costume committee of Fresh-

Lend Seasonal Beauty
If the Ann Arbor weather has fin-
ally stopped fooling its students and
residents we may believe that spring
with a capital "S" has finally come
to stay. Even the University gard-
eners think so, for they have been
doing a lot of flower cultivating late-
ly aroundmthe dormitories. And from
gardens come flowers which every
young miss should use to add that
breath of spring to her costumes.
The tiny blue and white chinadoxis
that abound in all garden borders are
among the most sweetly scented flow-
ers of the season. Tiny bunches of
them in your hair or on a suit lapel
does wonders toward acquiring that
look of casual good grooming.
Lilies of the valley tied with tiny
