Panhellenic Association has vot-
d by a large majority to use a
rushee counseling plan similar to
that in use at the University of
Rushing will become more per-
sonalized with a group of 10 coun-
sellors, whose duty will be to give
unprejudiced advice to rushees.
Mary Stierer, president of Pan-
hellenic, stated, "The develop-
ment of the counseling program is
important because it provides a
strong basis for strengthening
Panhellenic spirit, rather than in-

hellenic is interested in pledging
more coeds to some sorority, rather
than a particular chapter."
Contact of the counselors with

and be continued through the
year. Each counselor will be con-

Rushees, under the new plan
will have a chance to learn about
the sorority system early in the
year and thus be better prepared
to judge during rushing.
Rushees will be taught to
go through rushhing with an
open mind, rather than aiming
for one particular house.
The members of the house, the
coeds with whom she would live
and associate for her years of col-
lege life, rather than the "name"
of the house, its size, or preten-
tiousness, will prove more impor-
tant in making a satisfactory
choice, according to Miss Stierer.

By LUCILLE DONALDSON
Steve Samuels is more fortunate
than many children in the Village.
He has more space to grow up in
because his family lives in a
three bedroom apartment.
The ideal situation, according to
child specialists, is a bedroom for
each child but that is not possible
in the Village for several reasons.
Many families wno are eligible
for transfer to a larger unit do
not apply because they ;do not
want to leave their present neigh-
borhood nor do they want to dec-
orate another apartment from end
* * *
A SECOND REASON is that
there are not enough two or three
bedroom apartments available for
every family which has one or
more children. Of the 3,066 apart-
ments, 494 have three bedrooms
and 1008 two bedrooms. Of the
remainder 1330 are one bedroom
units and 234 are zero bedrooms,
The latter have a combination
bedroom-living room arrangement.
Junior has his own bedroom
or nursery even in the one bed-
room apartments. The parents
move out into the living room
and call a studio couch their
bed while Junior and in many
cases child No. 2 reign supreme
in the bedroom.
A typical bedroom - playroom
contains a youth bed, crib or bas-
sinet, chest of drawers, tricycle,
scooter, and toys too numerous
to mention, from doting grandpar-
FAMILIES with tiny babies
have solved the space problem by
converting the twin beds into
bunks to make room for the crib.
For older children, mothers
have found the Co-operative
Nursery a help in training their
children. Ninety pre-school aged
youngsters are registered in the
three groups. Each class lists 90
The groups are divided into pri-
mary, for the 212 to 3 year-olds;
junior, 3 to 4 year-olds, and senior,
for children 4 years until the child
is eligible for kindergarten in the
regular school system.

EACH MOTHER must assist the1
teachers six or seven days a se-
mester. This excludes the children
of working mothers because no
mother can hire a substitute.
Mothers must also attend one gen-
eral meeting per month and two
mneetings of a smaller study group.
Mrs. Frances Morley is the in-
structor and Mrs. Joan Howes
is her assistant. They teach 5
one-half days per week with ses-
sions on Monday through Sat-
urday mornings and Tuesday,
Thursday and Friday after-
The University provides bus
service for the junior and senior
groups. A car pool gives transpor-
tation to the younger children.
* * *
THERE ARE 76 names on the
waiting list for the three groups.
New children can only enter the
school when a vacancy occurs.
Placement is not made according
to date of application but rather
by date of the child's birth. Chil-
dren who reach their 21/2 year
birthday first are eligible to fill
the next vacancy.
Older children of student fam-
ilies attend one of the four local
schools, Ross, Spencer, Simmons
or Foster, or University Elemen-
tary school in Ann Armor.
