Panhel Explains
Informal Rush
Panhellenic Office has received
several inqueries as to the reason
for the limited number of sororit-
ies participating in informal rush-
ing, according to Jane Wetmore,
Panhellenic rushing chairman.
Miss Wetmore disclosed the fol-
lowing information. Each sorority
has a quota governing the num-
ber of women they may have in
their chapter at one time. TITe
housesthat are rushing at this
time are those whose chapter en-
rollment decreased through loss
of members who did not return to
the' University this fall.
Informal rushing provides these
sororities with the opportunity of
bringing their quotas up to the
maximum number.

of all makes

has sold out its quota of tickets.
We will keep this booth open
Thursday and Friday," Miss
Sights concluded in an inter-
view to The Daily last night.
The annual Varsity Night,
which for eight years has been the
outstanding variety show of the
year on campus, is held for the
purpose of raising funds to .send
the Michigan Marching Band to
at least one of the away football
games every year.
This year's show will feature
two hours of varied entertain-
ment, including music, comedy,
and other forms of entertain-
ment. Ron Gamble, "Detroit's
most popular master of cere-
monies and radio announcer"
according to Professor William
D. Revelli, will emcee the show
which highlights the first ap-
pearance of the year on campus
of the concert band and the
Men's Glee Club.
The famous "Margie Chorus" of
the 1947 Junior Girls Play will
give the thousands of students
who were unable to see last year's
hit show the opportunity to see
the act that was the outstanding
part of last year's JGA.
The Homecoming Dance will
te held from 8:30 p.m. to mid-
