Fraternities Play Big Campus Role

For 108 years the fratenity sys-
tem at Michigan has occupied an
important spot in campus life. Its
objectives include not only the
pursuance of a well rounded social
life, but also integration in all
Each of the 43 social fraternities
conducts a formal rushing pro-
gram under the direction of the
Interfraternity Council at the be-
ginning of each semester. At this
prospective members may investi-
gate the various advantages of
campus fraternity life.
* S S
THIS YEAR'S rushing begins
on Sunday, Sept. 27 and lasts for
a period of two weeks. During this
time the rushee will be exposed to
open houses, smokers, luncheons,
and dinners. At the end of this
period the rushee may be asked to
join the fraternity of his choice.
In order to rush, the prospec-
tive fraternity member must reg-
ister in the Counselor to Frater-
nities office, 1020 Administration
Bldg. between Sept. 14, and 5
p.m. Sept. 30. There is no reg-
r istration fee during the period
of rushing, but a two dollar as-
sessment is payable to the IFC
upon pledging a fraternity.
A new program of open rushing
during the semester was started
last year in order to augment the
formal rushing program. This pe-
riod opens two weeks after formal
rushing closes. Such a system al-
lows the men who didn't pledge,
a whole semester in which to
acquaint themselves with the fra-
ternities, and gives the fraternities
a more informal opportunity to

BEAUSE all freshman men live
in. University dormitories, stu-
dents may move into fraternity
houses during their sophomore
year. Fraternities, like dormitories,
serve three meals a day.
Three fraternities on the Uni-
versity campus have house
Fraternities engage in their own
league of athletic events, cordi-
nated into the Intra-Mural Sports
Among fraternity social activi-
ties are weekend parties, football
luncheons, Mothers Day after-
noons, parents weekends, and for-
mal dinner dances,
THE Interfraternity Council acts
as a coordinating body for all the
social fraternities. During rushing
the IFC provides a counseling serv-
ice to help rushees through the se-
lection process. At Christmas time
a giant party is given for 3000 Ann
Arbor school children.
One of the more recent IFC
projects centers around the in-
stitution of Help Week to take
the place of a Hell Week. As a
community project fraternity
and sorority pledges help to
clean up and repair the Univer-
sity Fresh Air Camp.
The IFC also sponsors and en-
courages exchange dinners and
cooperative projects between the
mens' and womens' affiliated
With three pep rallies scheduled
for home games and several trips
planned to schools where the
Michigan football team is sched-
uled to play, the Wolverine club
has a crowded agenda for the
coming gridiron season.
A trip to Minneapolis in honor
of the fiftieth anniversary of the
Michigan-Minnesota Little Brown
Jug Rivalry is planned for the
October 24 game.

A GROUP OF 350 students will
leave Ann Arbor on the morning
of the Friday before the game.
After lunch at a Chicago restaur-
ant which will be reserved for the
group they will board a modern
vista domed train for Minneapolis.
For a day and a half they will
attend parties and open houses
as well as the Saturday afternoon
football game, before their sched-
uled return on Sunday.
According to Deane S. Dixon,
chairman of the project, 50 stu-
dents have already signed up for
the trip and space may be lim-
A trip to the Illinois game on
Nov. 7 and a bus caravan to the
Michigan State game on Nov. 14
are also being planned by the
club but final arrangements have
not been made.

which will be played in Ann Ar-
bor the Wolverine Club has sched-
uled three pep rallies for the first
and last games of the season and
for one game in the middle of the
Like pep rallies of the past
this semester's pre-game plans
will include participation by the
Michigan band, past football
captains and other alumni.
A torch light parade led by the
band takes the fans down State
Street from the tJnion to Ferry
Field where the guest of the eve-
ning gives a speech in front of a
flaring bon fire. Cheer leader dem-
onstrations complete the spectacle.

Restrictions on athletic acti-
vities are in accordance with Big
Ten rulings. A man is not able
to participate in Varsity com-
petition until he has spent one
year of residence in the Univer-
sity. The rules applies to trans-
fer students as well as freshmen.
He must also maintain an ac-
ceptable scholastic average.
Any freshman is eligible to par-
ticipate in Intermurral sports with
the exception of those who are on
a freshman sport squad. In that
case, he is not allowed in the In-
termurral sport of which he is
also on the squad.
Non-athletic eligibility rulings
were handed down by the Student
Affairs Committee in May, 1951.!
They are the result of many
changes which include the in-
crease of number of activities a
freshman is allowed to enter and
the abolition of eligibility cards.
Responsibility for observance of
the regulations is placed directly
upon the student.

12 to 16 WEEKS
SPEEDWRIT1NG is a form of shorthand that can be learned in 6 weeks of day school or 12 to
16 weeks of night school. It is based on the alphabet rather than on signs and symbols.
Consequently you already know 75% of SPEEDWRITING. Dictation speeds of from 100 to 120
words per minute can be obtained.
'Who Should Take £eed4*itih9
If you wish to qualify for the many stenographic and secretarial jobs that require dictation
skills, you will find SPEEDWRITING is adequate for your needs. SPEEDWRITING is the answer
to your problem if you are in line for a better job soon, but cannot qualify for it because you
do not have shorthand. If you are in a "blind-alley" job and are looking for new opportunities
SPEEDWRITING may be your entering wedge into pleasant, profitable, employment with good
chances for advancement. Very useful to College Students.
About Jobs For ,peed' itih Graduates
Our employment department has many more calls for stenographic and secretarial help than
can be filled. Many of these jobs have moderated dictation requirements and can be filled
by those with SPEEDWRITING training.
