IFC Stresses
Rushing Rules
Cooperation Of Rushees,
Fraternities Sought
With a record breaking number of:
men registered for fraternity rush-
ing this year, Don Stevenson, '42,
president of the Interfraternity Coun-
cil asked once more for close cooper-
ation of both the fraternities and the
rushees in seeing that the rushingt
rules set up by the Council are strict-
ly followed.
Stevenson especially stressed the
point that no fraternity men will be
allowed in the dormitories after 6:30
p.m. and again warned that the use
of cars or taxis for rushing purposes'
is prohibited.
Also to be noted are the regula-
teons stating that any contact with
a freshman over one half hour will
be constituted as a "date," and that
lunch dates must be over by 3:30
p.m. In the evening, rushing will
cease for the day at 8:30 p.m. after
which there must be no personal
contact between fraternities and the
Since Council rules provide that
no freshman may accept more than
eight dates with one fraternity, it is
hoped that the rushees will see several
fraternities before attempting to de-
cide their preference.
Rushing will continue until Thurs-
day evening, Oct. 16, following which
there will be a period of silence until
Monday evening when pledging will
take place.

$75,000 Saved
He cited a similar situation in De-
troit, where builders of a large struc-
ture near the Windsor tunnel be-
lieved they would have to "underpin"
the building at a cost between $75,000
and $100,000. Careful study by Uni-
versity soil experts disproved this be-
lief and the money was saved.
The methods of soil analysis are
now being applied to roads and air-
ports. In these cases, however, Prof.
H'ousel explained that the main prob-
lem is to insure the pavement
strength against the weight of large
trucks and airplanes.
To obtain samples of the earth at
a proposed site, a steel casing about
five inches in diameter is driven into
the ground by a hydraulic hammer.
Force Measured
A , stainless steel "core-barrel,"
sharp at the bottom end, and con-
taining "core-liners," or thin steel
sleeves approximately one and one-
half inches in inside diameter, is then
lowered into the casing and the re-
quired force is accurately measured.
The tapered cutting-tip and design
of the barrel serve to hold the liner
in it proper place.
Because the core-barrel is only
about one foot long, most of the earth
in the casing can be forced out by
means of a high-pressure water in-
jection apparatus which force-floats
it to the surface.
Sent To Laboratories
The steel liner and its core of
earth are removed from the casing,
then inserted into a brass cylinder,
