Mass Meeting
Will Be Held
By Panhellenic
Discussion Of Rushing Rules
To Take Place At Affair Today;
All Delegates Must Be Present
Involving a discussion of some o:
the most stringent changes in rush-
ing rules which have been necessary
in years, a Panhellenic mass meeting
will be held at 4:15 p.m. today in the
League.
It is' necessary that all Panhellenic
representatives from each of the
houses be present with their alumnae
advisers, Pat Hadley, '42, president of
the organization said, but the entire
membership of Michigan's Panhel-
lenic should make an effort to attend.
Policies Adjusted
Not only rushing rules-although
they they will probably be the most
important matter for discussion-will
be debated, but an adjustment of the
entire policy of Panhellenic may be
brought up, Miss Hadley added.
Immediate causes for the changes
in rushing rules and general policy
are present war conditions and the
new shorter semester schedule. It
has already been decided by Panhel-
lenic council that two solid weeks of
rushing under the three-semester
change will probably have to be mod-
ified to some extent.
All To. Rush
"Since every member of every sor-
ority will have to rush under the new
ruling, to be discussed at this assem-
bly, and since no changes can be
made for individuals, once the ruling
is passed, it will be best for the long-
run convenience of everyone that she
attend the meeting," Miss Hadley
stated.
Present rushing rules call for two
teas, to be given on successive days by
the houses, a week and a half of
desserts and finally, two nights of
formal dinners. Pledging follows
shortly after the last functions.

Whether strolling through the
Arboretum or any other spots of local
interest on one of these bright days
the casual observer or anyone else
involved will, to use the vernacular,
be knocked for a loop after casting
his eyes upon this model of a flam-
ing red box coat. The days to come,
tra la, will be accompanied with
weather too warm for furs and too
cool for suits. A double-breasted,
soft wool model like this is ideal for
the situation.
A classic, and appearing in all pas-
tel shades, it is trimmed with tinted
butttons, the shade of the coat. Also
smart are the large mother-of-pearl
button trims.
The back falls naturally into
straight lines. The coat also has a
rib of stitching down the back, simi-
lar to that down the sleeve, which is
ended in a fly-back. r

Oversees Fifth
Magazine Issue
The fifth and final issue, under its
present editorship, of the League;
magazine is off the presses today,
and its intriguing title this time is1
that of "Leaguers' Digest," according
to Dorothy Merki, '42, chairman of

has done a take-off all year on the
better known periodicals in circula-
tion, using the names in connection
with the League and its activities.
In September and October, it wast
the League "Life," in November it1
was "Vogue of the League," in De-
cember entitled "Child Life," and inI
February they called it "Good
Leaguekeeping."
Featured in this last issue will be
news on the coming Installation
Banquet, an article concerning the
McCormick Scholarship, and an-
nouncements for the month done in
the manner of "Patter and Pictur-
esque Speech.'" Helping Miss Merki
with the publication this time are
Miriam Williams, '44, Kay Jones, '43,
and Glenn McDaniels, '45.
The magazine was originated and
has been published by the House
Committee all year, and is distrib-
uted upon publication at the- House
Presidents' Meeting. It sometimes is
made up of 4eight pages and some-I
times is four. Contained within its
covers is any and all information

ems, and sketches throughout.

By BARBARA De FRIES
The life-line of any musical pro-
duction is obviously the dancing, cap-
ably supported by the music. This
year, more than ever, the solidarity
and public security of JGP's "NoI
Questions Asked" depends upon the
aptness of these two departments.
Consequently, Jean Ranahan and
Lorraine Dalzeon, spirited co-chair-
men of the dance, had no misgivings{
considering the burden unceremon-
iously layed before them, when it was
decided that JGP would be a musical,
comedy, ala vaudeville.
Two Wise Young Ladies 1
Acting on the ancient adage that
"he who hesitates is lost," they dove
into their suddenly imposed task and
had rehearsals well under way before
the actual script was even completed.
To say their hearts are in their job
is putting it mildly-it takes more
than an enthusiastic heart to dance
away the hours and to never become
exasperated over the questionable
teachability of their dancers.
With that as sufficient buildup-
but none the less deserved-we'll
