Official 'rushing rules also tsate
that a house may not have more than
four dates with one rushee and this
applies to telephone calls as well.
However, if a sorority wishes to rush
a certain woman who has not yet
registered officially for rushing, it
may ask her if she would like to regis-
ter so that she may be asked to des-
sert or dinner. If a woman is not
registered she may not be invited to
a house during the intensive rushing
period, except the initial tea.
Effective as of Monday, Sept. 22,
the silence rule is still being enforced
and there may be no contact between
rushees and sorority women except as
stated in the rules. This silence pe-
riod will end officially on Saturday,
Oct. 11, between sororities and wo-
men who have received bids, and on
Monday, Oct. 13, between sorority
women and those who have not ac-
cepted bids.
Any further information on the
Panhellenic rushing rules may be ob-
tained at the 'booth itself in the
League, or at the Office of the Dean
of Women in Barbour Gymnasioum.
After this period of intensive rushing,
women still interested in registering

MUlti -Colored
Towels, Cloths
ain Popularity
Have you/ever thought seriously
about towels? Or washcloths? Or
bathmats? No, you probally never
have. I never spent my lonely eve-
nings wondering about their respec-
tive merits either until this summer
when I got a job in the toweling de-
partment of a metropolitan store.
Yes, they grow on you. When I
first started working, I thought that
nothings could possibly have so little
personality as a towel, but I soon dis-
covered the error of my ways. Before
I knew it, I was sending them home
by the dozen to my mother, to my
friends; it's fortunate I had to come
back to school or I'd still be doing it.
Colors Are Varied
Did you know that there are towels
so fleecy and thick that they cost
several dollars apiece? Did you know |
that they come in all colors of the|
rainbow with several strange combin-
ations besides, that the rainbowprob-
ably had no idea existed? Bright red,1
chartreuse, burgundy, copper, navy,
coral, peach, aqua and so on far
into the night. It was a completely
new field to me, not because I have-
n't seen pretty towels before, but be-
cause I had never really noticed them.
I am what is .technically termed a
lover of "cliches," and my advice to
freshmen at the moment is "Cleanli-
ness is a virtue" and "Cleanliness is
next to Godliness," which brings us
right back to towels, my favorite topic
of conversation. Everybody, or1 most
everybody, takes baths. After a bath
there afe two distinct ways of drying
one's self. One may shake himself
dry like a St. Bernard, or one may
use the accepted procedure and grab
a nice, soft, turkish towel.
Motifs Vary
Since most people use the latter
method, even college people, they
might just as well pick towels that
appeal to their more aesthetic tastes.
Find out the color scheme for your
"at-school-bathroom", if any, and
buy your bathroom accessories ac-
cordingly. There are towels in mili-
tary motif, naval motif. There are
towels with animals or flowers appli-
qued on them. Or most popular of
all with collegiennes, is the mono-
grammed towel with the initials in a
contrasting color to that of the towel
It's amazing the variations in color

and design you can find among the
towels and washcloths, and it's also
amazing what a few nice towels can
do to bolster up your bathing average
in enjoyment.
