Party Hears Anouncement
Of Verner-Hall Wedding
A party after last Saturday's game
served to surprise 30 friends of the
former Jane Verner, '39, and Louis
Hall, '29, by the announcement of
their elopement last February. Mrs.
Louis B. Hall is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. W. F. Hall of Lincoln Ave.
and Mr. Hall is the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Douglas Hall of Swarthmore,
1 The couple are residing at 443 S.
Division St. Mrs. Hall is continuing
her work in the University and Mr.
Hall is working temporarily.

A date which often goes unmen-
tioned in the annals of sorority his-
tory on this campus is April 15, 1891,1
the date on which Kappa KappaI
Gamma extended an invitation to six,
other fraternities to meet in Boston
to discuss methods for bettering fra-
ternity conditions.
The need for interfraternity con-
tact had long been felt, but the first
move was made toward organization
when seven, Alpha Phi, Delta Delta
Delta, Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi
Beta, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa
Kappa Gamma and Pi Beta Phi, met
in Boston,
Common Problems Justify Move
The fact that most of the problems
met by women's fraternities were
common to all, and that, still more
significantly, the fraternities were

Hear Address
By Dean Lloyd
Social Conduct Is Theme
Of Talk To Freshmen
More than 400 freshmen women
heard Dean Alice C. Lloyd's address
on "Campus Conduct" yesterday in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre of
the League. The lecture was given as
. part of the 1938 Orientation piogram
for women.
In introducing her subject, Miss
Lloyd explained that she wished to
give her audience "helpful suggestions
and advice" on social conduct. Dis-
cussing the question that is upper-
most in most freshmen's minds at this
particular time, Miss Lloyd admon-
ished her audience not to take sor-
orities and rushing too seriously. She
explained that experience in college
can be fine whether in a sorority or
not, and warned the freshmen that
rushing is artificial.
On the subject of drinking and
smoking, Miss Lloyd explained that
the University does not dictate as to
these practices except to forbid smok-
ing in Univeristy buildings, especially
the library. However, she urged the
audience to refrain from either prac-
Studies Are All-Important
"Studies," Miss Lloyd pointed out
to the freshmen women, "are the
foundation of all that you do. Observe
quiet hours in dormitories, league
houses and sororities," she advised.
Education should mean a broaden-
ing of the intellect, Miss Lloyd de-
clared. An attempt to understand the
people with whom one associates, and
the use of the educational facilities
here will be an aid to that broaden-
ing process.
"Convention can be overdone," said
Miss Lloyd, as she stated that she
considered friendliness and natural-
ness the basis of social poise.
Announce Engagement
The engagement of Ruth Hamilton
Shaw to Charles H. Parrish of Owens-
boro, Ky., was announced at a party
this week by the former's parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Howard Johnson Shaw
of Detroit. Miss Shaw attended Miss
Newman's and Knox School in Coop-
erstown, N. Y. Mr. Parrish attended
the University.

founded on the same ideals and with
the same purposes, seemed justifica-
tion for the move.
Though the first attempts were not
successfula similar meeting was called
in 1902 in Chicago, with the result
that "The Intersorority Conference,"
a forerunner of the present Panhellen-
ic Association, was formed. The high
standards of the Conference were to
be enforced as a matter of ethical
agreement, and it was hoped that the
organization would promote a feeling
I of mutual respect and amity between
the fraternities, thereby facilitating
the working out of their common pro-
* Annual Meetings Are Planned
The plan of the Conference Was
that a meeting would be held annu-
ally, at the invitation of each of the
fraternities in rotation, and composed
of one delegate from each. Later this
Conference ordered the formation of
a Panhellenic Association in every
university in which two or more na-
tional fraternities were represented.
The Michigan Panhellenic Associa-
tion was formed on the initiative of
Gamma Phi Beta.
Many Houses Join
Fraternities entered in the follow-
ing order: Gamma Phi Beta, Delta
Gamma, Collegiate Sorosis, Pi Beta

In 1926 Dean Alice Lloyd became
the adviser. Prior to that time offices
in the Asrociation had been held in
rotation according to the order of
each fraternity establishment on
