ryL
By the Neighbor {
The first hectic week is over and by now you nineteen hundred freshman
lads and lassies should be able to leave maps behind when you go out walking.
You still won't see the normal college life until rushing is over in about two
weeks so just make the best of it. Join in the hum-
drum existence with every one else and tear around
like mad.
Scenes around campus this past week showed
Jane Burbott and vivacious Jean Sollitt tearing their
respective heads over class schedules in a vain at-
tempt to avoid eight o'clocks. These freshmen learn .
quickly. Tuesday morning, Marion Smith had two *
weary souls on her hands as Alice Thomas andk
Phyllis Tonkin, Ray's younger sister, filled out hun-
dreds of blanks and slips. They spent the next two .
nights writing their names and addresses in their sleep.

Director Aids
Sororities As
Rushing Starts
Panhellenic Book Shows
Map Of Houses, Rules
And Names Of Actives
The new Panhellenic Directory, edi-
ted by a committee under the direc-
tion of Dorothy Shipman, '40, is a;
new feature of this year's rushing sea-
son, Stephanie Parfet, '39, President
o f Panhellenic Association, a n -
nounced.
The Directory can be secured at
the Rushing Registration Booth in
the lobby of the League on payment
of the 50 cent rushing fee. The boo'k-
let contains a map showing the loca-
tion of all the sorority houses on
campus, a list of rushing rules, tips
on rushing technique, and pictures of
the houses with the list of active
members in each house..
The 50 cent rushing fee, in addition
to paying for the Panhellenic Direc-
tory, will be used in establishing a
fund from which the Association
hopes to be able to award scholar-
ships in 1939 or 1940.
The Association met recently and
accepted the first of three recom-
mendations of the summer commit-
tee, which under the chairmanship
of' Ellen Rhea, '40, investigated the
possibilities of adopting the quota
system for this campus. It was decid-
ed to accept the first recommendation,
that we adopt the drop list system,
and the other two are to be decided
in meeting today. ,
Of the two remaining propositions,
the first is that the quota system be
worked out on a basis of three years
with the purpose of equalizing houses;
the second, that something be done
to make annexes unnecessary.
Silence between affiliated and non-
affiliated women begins with Orienta-
tion and extends until after pledging.

Lambeth Walk Is Among
Novelty Dances Planned
For League And Union
Tomorrow and Thursday the Ori-
entation Committees of the League
and Union launch the concluding
feature of an intensive orientation
program, the freshman tea dances.
Revived after about fifteen years, its
sponsors are confident of success, an-
nounced Marcia Connell, '39, chair-
man of the League committee.
Miss Connell stated that the care-
ful attention which has been devoted
to every detail in planning the dances
seems to assure their success. Bob
teinle and his orchestra will play
for tomor'ow's dance which will be
held ' in the Union ballroom, and
Charlie Zwick will play Thursday in
the League; the hours in both cases
are 4 to 6 p. m.
Tickets Are Limited
The tickets will be sold through the
freshman advisers, 400 for each day.
rhe price has been reduced to fif-
teen cents though it had formerly
been anniounced as twenty-five cents.
Since there are 1900 freshmen and
only 800 tickets available it is ey-
pected that they will go very quickly.
Three door prizes will be given
each day. Tomorrow's prizes will con-
sist of three tickets, to a week-enl
dance at the Union, Thursday's three
tickets to a week-end dance at the
League. In addition there will bea
prize for the boy with the most
"number of names of girls he has
danced with.
To Have Novelty Dances
Before the dance the groups will'
meet in the small ballroom at the
Union and the Grand Rapids room
at the.League to get their name tags.
No one can enter the ballroom with-
outd apartner when they first arrive,
and once in the ballroom circle
dlances, girl 'robber: dances, andl the
stag line will keep things going.
The strains of "Change Partners"
will indicate a double cut, both boy
and girl quickly changing partners.
"The Lambeth Walk" will provide a
special feature at both dances. It
will be demonstrated first, and then
everyone will join in and learn it.
The members of each group will
meet with their adviser before the
dances and go in together+

Tuesday afternoon saw Dottie Baxter herding Elsie Courtney and Joan
Ferguson, among others, into the Romance Language building for con-
ferences with their advisors. The girls were properly impressed with the age
of that well-known structure. Marcia Connell's sister, Jane, was another
bewildered miss this past week. She is still recovering from writer's cramps
as is Astrid Hegge, Lib's younger sister. Looks as if we have a pretty fine
bunch of freshmen this year. Nancy Jane Seeds and Jeanne Howard were
seen being helped through the registration maze Thursday by Kay Burns.
It was a stiff battle but they won. Later in the day Mildred Da Lee and
Marjorie McCoy were found wandering through Health Service with smiling
faces. If they but knew the dangers of that place.
Betty Bould and Peggy Gabriel were intrigued with the audiometer test
that they took Saturday morning. It seems they learn something new
everyday, keep it up, girls. Anna-Jean Williams and Mary Joyce Engstrom
meekly followed Betty Balswin through the general library Friday afternoon.
We hope they got the right idea and use the place for studying. Never have
there been so many sisters on campus as this year. The place positively ozzes
with them. Mary Haskell arrived Monday, all the way from Wenatchee,
Washington, to join her'sister on campus, and Harvey Clarke's little sister,
Barbara, was also seen wandering among the buildings as she went from
the League to the libe and back. She's catching on quickly.
W.A.A. Stages Stile Parade
Gobs and gobs of people attended the W.A.A. fashion show Wednesday
afternoon on Palmer Field. Leona Henderson, Eleanor Donahue and Mar-
garet Hadsel seemed to enjoy seeing Janet Fullenweider in her old fashioned
gym suit. Caroline Bowen and Betty Ann Belisle were impressed by Harriet
Sharkey's efficiency as she saw to it that
, everything went off smoothly. Norma Curtis
"4 'did the announcing and Mary Gunn and
Millie Curtis didn't miss a word she said.
There were many ooh's and ah's, when Ellen
MacDonald modeled a riding habit. Phyllis

First Marriage Course Given
To Seniors At North Carolina

-

Subject Originated Over
10 Years Ago; Credit
Is Awarded Students
By ANN VICARY
Slightly more than a decade ago a
group of University of North Caro-
lina senior men visited the president.
of the university with a request that
a course be given preparing them for
marriage.
Without exception those men andt
the others in their class intended to
marry and to rear families. They
made their epoch-making request
with the conviction that their col-
lege education, intended to prepare
them for a useful and happy life, was
neglecting one of the most important
phases of their futures.

By way of recognition in scholar-e
ship the Panhellenic Association holdss
an annual banquet the last Monday
in October to present awards for
high scholastic standing. At that timeI
the Dean of Women's office presents
a book to the sorority having the bestr
sclalastic rating for the past year.
At present Alpha Delta Pi is holder '
of this award and Delta Gamma and
Pi Beta Phi have the next highest
per centages respectively. Alpha Chi.
Omega, Gamma Phi Beta, Chi Ome-
ga, Delta Delta Delta, Collegiate Sor-1
osis, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Alpha
Phi, Kappa Alpha Theta, Alpha Epsi-
lon Phi, Zeta Tau Alpha, Alpha Xi

Omicron Pi, Kappa Delta, Phi Sigma.
Sigma rank in scholarship in thisj
order, among the sororities.
Alumnae House led the dormitory
and league house groups last year
and second and third ratings were
had by Adelia Cheever and MarthaE
Cook respectively.
Last year a new system was inaug-
urated in which the first semester.
freshman woman in each sorority
pledge class was honored at a lunch-
eon given by the Panhellenic Associa-
tion. The executive board of Panhel- I
lenic served as hostesses, 'and this
event is going to be an annual affair,
Stephanie Parfet, president of Pan-
hellenic, announced.
An honor roll consisting of the
names of the women who attended
the luncheon was xstarted last year
and is on display in the League lib-
rary. Name of the Freshman women
honored at the luncheon each year
will be added to the eighteen names
now sted. Miss Parfet stated that
these luncheons were held with the
hope that such a meeting would serve
to stimulate better scholastic rating
among Freshman women and be an
incentive for high scholarship among
the new students.
In April the Annual Installation
Banquet is held at the League, at
which time a Service and Scholarship
Cup is presented to one house or sor-
ority, which has been prominent in
activities on the campus as well as
having a good 'scholastic standing.
For the last two years Delta Gamma
has been awarded the cup.
Three Ethel McCormick scholar-
ships of $100 each were awarded last
year to individual students at the In-
stallation banquet and the presenta-
tions were based on scholarship, need
and activity..
Miss Parfet said that it has been
the practice in the past to give two
scholarships of $100 each to 'an in-
dependent woman
The first award was made in 1937
and last year the association again
presented the scholarships. This year

taught by professors whose major
line lay in other fields. Finally Er-
nest R. Groves was put in full charge
of the course, the first instructor
ever to devote his full energies to the
subject.
Students Suggest Topics
In, bringing the matter to the at-
tention of the administration, the
students had made it clear that they
desired two things from the course-
information and counsel. For that
reason lectures and conference pe-
riods were both used in teaching the
subject. There was general agree-
ment among the students asking for
the course that it should treat
"Courtship," "Choice of a Mate," "En-
gagement," "Finances," "Marital Ad-
justment," "Domestic Adjustment,"
meaning problems of relationship

W moren's Pool
u n d Grows
W.A.A. Has 12 Per Cent
Of Total Sum For Pool
Good news for all boosters of the
proposed new women's swimmirg pool
was announced, recently when Dr.
Margaret Bell, director of physical
education for women, said that the
Women's Athletic Association now
has 12% of the total sum needed.
The principle project of W.A.A. has
been, and will.be for some time, the
new swimming pool, which is to be
made a part of the Women's 'Athletic
Building. The sum with which W.A.A.
expected to build a cabin was trans-
ferred into the pool fund, according
to Norma Curtis, '39, president, and
donations for the pool have been re-
ceived.
Last year such events as the swim-
ming exhibition in the fall, the Tom-
my Dorsey Swing Concert in the
winter and Michigras in the spring
also contributed heavily to the pool
fund. It is expected that similar af-
fairs will be held this year, Dr. Bell
said.
