By LOIS KELSO
THE PROCESS known as sorority rushing obviously has behind it a great
deal of scientific thought. After years of painstaking research affiliated
women have developed a series of tests for determining the character of
rushees which should win the respect of eminent psychologists.
One of the deeper thinkers on sports staff (there are some) has been
wondering why rushees are forced to attend opening teas in hats. I should
like to point out that one can tell a great deal about a girl by the sort
of hat she wears. Evidence of this sort has been found to be the most ama-
tetirish and old-fashioned method of asking people who have known her
for years what the girl is like
APPARENTLY THE QUALITY niost desirable in a sorority woman is en-
durance. This is usually euphtmistically referred to as poise, and is test-
ed by forcing the rushee to play a assable game of bridge while being in-
troduced to someone new every three seconds on the second, simultaneously
drinking coke, smoking, but not too much, carrying on a sparkling, but not
too sparkling, conversation, and displaying interest without seeming eager.
The woman who can emerge from this ordeal with a pleasant smile and the
housemother's name ready for farewells is made of stern stuff indeed, and
can be depended on to survive any of life's major crises.
Trained psychologists that they are, sorority women can jndge a pros-
pective member's personality with infallille precision after one of these
hectic interviews. After the last rushee has been embarrassed by a pro-
fusion of farewells, the sisters gather in solemn conclave, and take off
their shoes, and give the results of their investigations, saying either,
"She's real nice. I like her," or "Somehow I didn't particularly care for
her." It takes quite a while for every member to make one or the other of
these statements, but every member must have a right to express her
opinion, and believe me, she does.
IN ORDER to keep the whole thing on a scientific basis, sorority women
and rushees are strictly enjoined from meeting outside these laboratory
periods. This is undoubtedly a wise move, as it eliminates the possibility of
sorority women and rushees. seeing each other acting natural and thus
forming false impressions. However, I feel that restrictions are futile and in-
convenient when applied to sisters.
Let us assume, not altogether hypothetically, that I have a younger sister
now struggling through rushing, who has become ill. I should be unable to
communicate with her in person, on the phone, or in writ ing. I should be
able to do nothing but chew my nails and wonder.
FRANKIE, I hope you're feeling better.

Your Red Cross faces they
greatest task in its Iong history
This is the most important appeal for funds in the history of the
American Red Cross.
After three years of war the work of your Red Cross is greater than
ever. It must serve millions of our fighting men abroad. Lonely men.
Homesick men. Wounded men. The Red Cross,
always at their side, helps to bring them cheer and
comfort wherever they may be.
It lends a helping hand to the thousands of
returning service men - sick, wounded -desper-.
ately in need of friendly guidance.
And remember, YOU ... and you alone... keep
the Red Cross alive. For without your help there "mo
could be no Red Cross. There are no special funds to keep, up its great
humanitarian work. The money must come, as always, from the heart
of America - you!
Our duty is clear ... we must keep the Red Cross at the side of our
fighting men and our wounded heroes. We must
help the Red Cross in its vital job of sending food
I and medicine to war prisoners . . . aiding the ill
and lonely overseas ... collecting life-giving blood
plasma. The scope of the Red Cross is almost
limitless. Every Red Cross worker is your personal
messenger of sympathy and comfort to your man
