system do not seem to r'ealize that,

pride, and integrity to the truly
noble and of persuading others to
jet in and have their characters
improved by sacrificing scholas-
tic work, health, social life, com-
fort, pride, and integrity . . . (this
could go on forever and I some-
times feel it has been.>)
The antiseptic ads think there
are some things even your best
friend won't tell you, but your so-
rority sisters will, with threats.
CONSIDER the altruism of a so-
Srority girl sitting on the floor,
her legs slowly becoming para-
lyzed, leering bravely up at some
miserable freshman, although her
heart is sick at the sight of two
of her ever-loving sisters making
fools of themselves telling corny
jokes in blackface. Sydney Car-
ton had nothing on her.
Then there is the appalling lit-
tle institution of hash session. This
is when sorority girls stagger into
one room and listen with pain-
glazed eyes as each and every sis-
ter says either, "Oh I- like her!
1ionestly, she's wonderful!" or,
with a burst of originality, "Oh, I
like her ! Honestly, she marvel-

tarboard may feel a bit hurt by
this slight, but they must realize
that it does a lot more for a
girl's soul to sit around on the
floor and ask sixty-six freshmen
what their home towns are than to
be out with some man.
If anyone rushes up in the next
few seconds and asks you what
helpless venom is, just shove this
