fissembly Organization Builds Plan
For Consolidation of Independents

_ ___ _ _

Assembly is planning a program
for next year to unify all indepen-
dent women on campus and to ac-
quaint them with their opportunities
in activities.
"Independent Fortnight", a series
of events designed to familiarize in-
dependent women with the purpose
and organization of Assembly, inter-
viewing and petitioning processes,
and all activities, will begin with a
mass rally held on the Monday of
the third week of the fall term. Dean
Alice Lloyd, Miss Ethel MacCormick,
and members of the Assembly Board
will be introduced.
Assembly Board To Visit Houses
During the next two weeks the
Assembly Board will visit every dor-
mitory, auxiliary dormitory and lea-
gue house, presenting talks and skits.
In many instances the residents of

the houses will be combined so there
will be fewer houses to visit.
The climax of Independent Fort-
night will be Recognition Night when
all independents will honor their
classmates who have made outstand-
ing records in scholarship and activi-

evidence of their membership in As-
sembly, membership cards will be
introduced, and the Assembly song
will be used more extensively next
Assembly plans for new social ac-

"We have an enthusiastic Board
for next year and each one of us is
willing to work very hard toward
making Assembly a strong and active
organization of which every inde-

zation is only as strong and active
as its members," Helen Alpert, As-

full support and cooperation, we
promise them the best year Assembly
has ever had," Miss Alpert concluded.

Voluntary Honor Code To Replace
Contact Rules in Formal Rushing


Contact rules during the pre-for-
mal rushing period have been com-
pletely abolished, according to a
recent announcement by Nancy Jef-
ford, Panhellenic rushing chairman.
"They were abolished because we
want independent and sorority women,
to have as much free contact as pos-
sible, as much as they normally would
if rushing were non-existent." Miss
Jefford continued.
Because the formal rushing period
will be deferred until the second
semester, all sororities will abide by
an honor system during the first
semester, and this voluntary honor
.code will govern all contact between
sorority women and prospective rush-
