Sororities Lead Fraternity Men
In Homecoming War Bond Rice
Hustling sorority women forged j
nearly $200 ahead of the fraternities
in the Homecoming war bond and
stamp race yesterday, but the still

Pan-Hellenic Council reported late

come back for more than $400 worth
of additional stamps yesterday, mak-
ing a grand total of more than $800.
Meanwhile, IFC bond salesman
Jack Page declared the fraternity
total at $655. He also lashed out

At present all campus fraternities
have reported for their $20 quotas of
war stamps and two houses, Phi Delta

Regarding the ace up the fraternity
sleeve, it was whispered in campus
circles that members of at least two
houses, ATO and Sig Ep, were plan-
ning large bond purchases. Other
houses, too, are reported to have indi-

through in this fashion.
This contest between Michigan fra-
ternity men and sorority women is for
the three cups that are being offered
the first three ranking houses selling
the most war bonds and stamps be-
fore next Monday.
