Concentrated Rush Parties
Cause Standstill in Activities,

By MOLLY O'BRIEN
Women's activities on campus
have come to a virtual standstill
during the past ten days.
Authorities attribute the slow-
down to the new system of con-
centrated rushing which is being1
tried out for the first time in his-
tory at the University.
UNDER THE experimental set-
Modern Dance
DevelopsPos
"Development of an emotion or
an idea in movement rather than
presenting it in a story is the
concern of modern dance," accord-
ing to Edith Daniels, manager of
the University Modern Dance
Club.
"Unlike ballet," Miss Daniels
explains, "the movements in Mod-
!rn Dance are freer, more natural
and less formally organized."
UNDER THE DIRECTION of
Dr. Juana de Laban, the Modern
Dance Club at the University is
organized to give those students
interested in this art more oppor-
tunity to study the techniques of
dance and to learn and perform
the fundamentals of composition
work.
This semester the club has
been somewhat reorganized to
divide the group into beginner
and intermediate sections,
The beginners' group will meet
for the first hour on Wednesday
nights while the intermediate
group will meet the second hour,
the hours being divided for eacht
group into techniques and com-
positions. ,
MEETINGS will be held eni
masse for the first two weeks
while the group decides the dance
program for the spring semestere
to be held in April.
Interested men and women,k
both beginners and interme-.
diate, will be welcomed by the
group to club meetings held on
Wednesday nights in the Bar-
bour dance studio.r
Anyone interested but unablet
to attend the first two meetings
may call Edith Daniels, 2-4561.i
JGP Meeting
Ushering committee will meet
at 4 p.m. today in the League.
The room number will be post-
ed. Members are 'asked toc
bring their eligibility cards, ac-t
cording to Lois Kennedy, chair-t
man.

up, rushing parties are jammed
into a two week period. Formerly
rushing was stretched over five
weeks.
The estimated 700 affiliated
women and the 480 rushees have
found, their time pretty well
taken up by the full round of
parties and teas. The average
women taking part in rushing,
either as a host or visitor, finds
herself with little more than one
free night a week.
But despite the heavy demands
on her time the average sorority
woman and rushee has expressed
approval of the experimental sys-
tem.
MEN ON CAMPUS are not too
happy about the situation, how-
ever. Usually scarce dates are
even scarcer. If a male manages
to snag a date he often discovers
that rushing business will keep
his gal tied up nutil late in the
evening.
Daily women's page staffers
are finding it difficult to get
news during the rushing period.
too. Many affiliated female
campus leaders, who are their
best news sources, are busy
rushing. Consequently there's
little news being made.
The revamped rushing systeml
was borrowed from Minnesota and
will be adopted by the Panhellenic
Association here if it works out
satisfactorily.
Caduceus Ball
Instituted in 1893
Everything from catacombs to
this year's Gold Rush has been
used for the Caduceus Ball dec-
orations, since the ball was first
instituted in 1893.
Caduceus Ball is one of the old-
est dances on campus, sponsored
in the early days by the Medical
School as a whole. Later the sen-
ior class took over, until Galens
began the sponsorship of the
dance in 1916.
Tickets are on sale now for stu-
dents and faculty of Medical
School and local doctors in the
medical sorority and fraternities
and at the Galens stand in Uni-
versity Hospital.
Undergraduate women attend-
ing will be granted 1:30 a.m. per-
mission, since the dance lasts from
9 p.m..to 1 a.m. The price of
tickets includes flower favors.
Today's rain togs are as smart
as any current fashions. Designed
with an eye to color and line,
they serve the dual purpose of
turning away the water, and fur-
nishing the bright note for a
dreary day's morale booster.

QUEEN OF IFEARTS-Jane Pickens, named "Queen of Hearts"
for the Heart Association's 1949 campaign for funds, suggests that
everyone appropriately commemorate the Valentine season by
joining the fight against heart disease. The NBC singing star was
crowned queen of the drive in recognition of her excellent service
during last year's campaign.
February Provides Opportunity
For Coed Warobe Bargains

College Living
Art Revealed
To Freshmen
There are a few points in the
education of a freshman which the
annual guide book, or the respec-
Live bluebooks of rules for League-
approved residences on campus.
have somehow overlooked.
From the point of view of an
upperclassman, there is an art to
living in a dormitory or League
House, especially for one who has
never been away from home be-
fore. It entails, above all, getting
along with a great many other
people including roommates, the
housemother, the dietician, and
the other 50 coeds who may be liv-
ing in the same house.
TIE IIOUSEMOT1hER is em-
ployed by the University to be just
what her name suggests; that is,
she's a kind of substitute for the
home-grown mother left behind.
The same rules for getting
along with her apply to any
rules one might have had to
keep at home. The ideas of two
extra minutes past closing
hours of Joe's company, a
nightly jam session right over
the housemother's room, or
even a strictly collegiate ap-
pearance in the most comforta-
ble pair of blue jeans and a
sweatshirt in the living ruanm
are guaranteed to keep the
freshman and her housemother
at odds.
Once the freshman has secured
her place in the housemother's af-
fections, it should be the easiest
thing in the world to be the ideat
roommate.
TRY PUTTING the room on a
cooperative basis, which means
that while your roommate empties
the wastebaskets, dusts the dres-
ers, and sweeps the floor, you see
that she's doing a good job.
There's nothing like (fe coopera-
tive system.
Of course, it must We renef)-
bered to cooperate to the fullest
capacity when the telephone
rings. Roommate's men aren't
to be shared.
Opinions about the food need
not be shared with friends or dis-
interested strangers. A sure dem-
onstration of the true crusading
spirit can be made by a daily
complaint to the dietician alongj
the line of "Don't you know I have
a delicate appetite?"

RAISING AN ISSUE:
Shorter Hemline Applauded

By BUDDY ARONSON
At last the long suffering male
las a cause for hope.
Christian Dior, French women 's
filln designer responsible for
that form of mental persecution
called the New Look, has an-
notunced that the hem line will be'
two to three inches shorter this
year than last.
Er s

who have been driven to art mu-
seums and aerial circuses for an
unexpurgated view of the female

Of course, the shorter hem
line is bound to produce devas-
tating effects throughout the
bourgeois women's world which
seeks to keep up with the Jonses
-and the new hem line. These
repercussions may he summar-

It will again be necessary that
women wash their knees;
Shorter hem lines will result in-

decline for their less fortunate
sisters:
We must once more fortify our-
selves for weather reports read-
ing, "High winds, followed by bil-
lowing skirts, followed by men."
It is appropriate that the short-

in the spring at which time they

men which turns lightly io
thoughts of what they have been

February, slump month in the
fasiaon world, provides an excel-
lent opportunity for low cost ad-
dition on the clothes-line of
economy wise coeds.
How many times does the bar-
gain seeking woman glance at the
gigantic February sale ads only to
close up the paper quickly assur-
ing herself that she can "put if
oft' until'Wxt, Y(ar.'
This so-called fashion-wise coed
is sure that she is using common
sense when she passes up the tail-
end merchandise that the retail-
ers are trying to pawn off on the
bargain hounds.
BUT HERE is a point the young
lady missed. If she would pick up
that paper again she might notice
that there are many juicy invita-
tions to come and buy, at slump
season prices, articles that have,
no time limit on style.
The really wise buyer should
check the sales on usuable and
reusable accessories. What
about that pair of winter suede
gloves that are really needed to
complete the wardrobe? Tail-
ored gloves remain a timeless
style and a wise investment at
sale prices.
Costume jewelry, if purchased
with conservative taste and for

quality is another time to pick
from the tempting February sales.
An attractive clasp, pin or neck-
lace will gather no dust in the
iewell box.
TO INSURE read bargains in
clothes as well as jewelry avoid
buying leftovers from a current
fal. The smart. women will buy
the old standbys that have proven
themselves through the years.
.lw sad experience of millions
f coeds with an oversupply of
baggy sweater and short skirts is
a good example of what happens
after a reoccuring fad goes out.
After four or five years a style
change is bound to come, so check
the age of that style before you
buy.
Dresses and shoes are to be
carefully avoided while search-
ing the pre-spring sales be-
cause they are invariably the
hangovers from the winter sea-
son and would be valueless the
following year.
The one exception to thin rule
is a wise one, however. This is a
tailored wool or gabardine. If such
a dress is hanging inconspicuously
on the sale racks, pull it out. It
will be well worth the sale price.
This type dress can be dressed up
or down with the style of the year
or moment and will always hang
in the front of your closet.
The slogan for February should
be "he is wise who buys," tem-
pered by the previous advise of
C(ourse.
When cleaning your bedroom,
be sure to wipe all lamp bulbs with
a soapy cloth; you'll find you get
more light from them.
