Controversial changes in rush-
ing rules will be discussed at a
meeting of the Interfraternity
Council at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in
Rm. 316 of the Union.
House presidents will discuss the
proposed system of deferred rush-

IFC president. Under the pro-
posed system a student must be
scholastically eligible before he
pledges a fraternity. Under the
present system of rushing, any
student may pledge a fraternity,
but may not be initiated until he
is scholastically eligible.
A discussion of the proposed sys-
tem will be held at Tuesday's' meet-
ing, and house presidents will act,
on the measure, Jackson said. The
recommendation of the house
presidents will then be referred to
the Executive Council of the IFC
and the Student Affairs Commit-
The deferred rushing system was
used in the 30's according to Jack-
son, but was later abandoned in
favor of the present system.
The only other major change
proposed in the revised rushing
rules is that rushing be carried
out only in the spring. House pres-
idents will also act on this measure
at, the meting.
Jackson has also announced that
petitions for the positions of presi-

IFC may be submitted any time
next week between the hours of 3
to 5 p.m. in the IFC office. Dead-
line for petitions is Friday.

Killich first became interested
in the business about 13 years ago,
when he was doing research work
for the Barrett division of the
Allied Chemical and Dye Corpora-
tion. "Most glass blowers today
are descendants of te old Ger-
man fanilies who first became
skillful in the art,' he explained.
"but sheer interest drove me into
the field."
No Danger in Trade -

doubts that practicing the trade
shortens life or has any ill effects
on the human body. "Some glass
dust may get into the lungs," lie
said, "but with modern mechanical
devices used in the trade the dan-
ger, if any, is negligible."

preparation andl cost.
Numerous complaints a ong

The questionnaire seeks to ar-
