Bright Felt Is Popular,
Sales Start Oct. 10;
Sawyer And Band
Be Musical Hosts
Soft fur felts and pert snap
brims trimmed with wide gro-
grain bands are making their ap-
pearance in the new fall shades.
The breton and the porkpie, va-
riations of this style, are being
shown in plum, moss green, grape-
wine, rose and gold.
Hash sessions and freshman jitters
became a thing of the past when so-
rority women and rushees went to
bed last night. In their passing theyI
left room for little but speculation..
First topic of interest of the imagin-
tion is the all important matter of
who goes what. That will be settled
Friday night when pledge lists arrive
via the dean's office. Accompanied
by the usual number of heartbreaks
and disappointments which makes
rushing so universally disliked by
rushee and rusher alike, thematter
will be formally settled -for the year.
There's another matter which won't
be so easily settled, however. Passing
years find rumors of the approaching
decease - of Greek,. letter groups in-
creasing in number, and hot behind
them grows the prosecutor's evidence.
The charge of superficiality, has
long been admitted by the staunchest
of fraternity defenders. Human quali-
ties cannot be diagnosed over dessert
or dinner, and the resulting unfa.ir-
ness robs the fraternity ideal of much
of its significance,

Is Downfall Inevitable?
The downfall of the fraternity sys-
tem seems far-distant, yet at the
same time almost inevitable. As long
as the dormitories remain nearer fra-
ternity than boarding-house level in
price, the danger is remote. People
are still suckers for the class system.
But between purse and pride,
Americans have only one choice-the
purse. The Greek letter house of
cards seems to me destined to tumble
down. Or don't you think so?
