Lead Groups
Saturday afternoon over a
thousand coeds started on the
first round of parties which began
the Michigan fall rushing season.
These first parties are called
"mixers" and introduce all rushees
to the eighteen houses on campus.
The rushees are divided into
groups of approximately ,seventy
and are conducted to the houses
by their Rushing Counselors.
every house on campuus with the-,
exception of Adelphi, a new soror-
ity, are completely disaffiliated
from their respective houses and
4 } act on the behalf of the rushees,
answering questions, making sug-
gestions, and in general, helping
each rushee go through the rush-
ing period smoothly.
An informal atmosphere will
predominate the rushing season
this year. It is suggested that
casual school clothes, like bobby
sox, skirts, and sweaters be
worn to both the "Mixers" and
the second set of parties. Re-
freshments and entertainment at
the house will also be simple.
The second set of parties starts
tomorrow, and lasts until Friday.
Two parties are given by each
house in the evening, lasting from
7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and from
9 to 10.

To Sponsor Tea
For AllCampus
Students returning from their
summer vacations and trips to Eu-
rope will have an opportunity to
renew acquaintances and make
new ones at a tea to be held from
4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the Inter-
national Center.
Foreign as well as American stu-
dents are urged to attend this first
tea of the semester.
During past semesters weekly

Union Offers'
'Little Club',
Other Events
Even though the semester has
barely begun, Union committee
members are busy outlining plans
for the entire term's social events.j
Several all-campus features
sponsored by the Union in past
years are on the agenda again.
Foremost among these events is
the weekly campus night-spot, the
Little Club. Held from 9 p.m. to
midnight every Friday night, it
features a night club atmosphere
complete with checked table
cloths and candles.
Entertainment includes out-
standing campus personalities.
Couples attending will dance in
the north lounge of the Union to
the music of Red Johnson and his
band. Pianist Johnson was heard
in the Union Opera last year.
The Little Club was first spon-
sored by the Union last fall.
This year's opening of the Lit-
tle Club is set for Friday night.
In line with the Union policy to
present a dance in the Union Ball-
room every Saturday night this
semester, the first all-campus
dance of the season was held last
Saturday evening. The music of
Jim Gilmartin was featured.
Future dance plans include three
specialty dances during the se-
mester. Dates and themes will be
revealed later.
Also a carry over from previous
years will be the Union-sponsored
Faculty Teas. Held so that stu-
dents may meet their professors
on an informal basis, the all-cam-
pus gathering are usually held bi-

RUSHING FUN-This group of rushees is chatting with the
actives of one of the eighteen campus sororities. They are at a
"mixer," on the first set of parties which began the University
fall rushing season. -

only the finest quality at prices that are fair

a general tour. These parties are
an hour long and perhaps the
rushees will be entertained with
singing and simple games.
Rushees will attend four parties
Saturday and Sunday and they
will last from 7 to 8 and 8:30 to
9:30 on Saturday and.2 to 3:00
and 3:30 to 4:30 on Sunday.
THE NEXT two days will b a
definite contrast to the third set.
Parties will be held outdoors if
the weather is nice and everyone
will wear their oldest and most
comfortable clothes, which in this
case will be blue jeans, slack,
shirts, and old shoes.
Rushees will get an introduc-
tion to sorority meals at these
parties. Two supper parties are
given by each house and ham-
burgers, hot dogs, and box
lunches will be served along with
potato salad and other picnic
food. Games will be played and
there will be both group and sor-
ority singing.
Next to pledging, final desserts
are the biggest item on the rush-
ing agenda. They take place on
Thursday, October 1 and Friday,
October 2.
EACH NIGHT there is one party
to attend and this lasts from 7:30
to 9:30 both nights. Since these
parties are two hours long, rushees
will have a chance to meet most
of the actives in the houses they
are rushing and in this way be able
to make an intelligent decision
on which house they want to
Dressy clothes will be worn, as

rushees will be served fancy des-

serts and entertained by chap-
ter singing.
The climax of the rushing sea-
son falls on October 4, after a day
of welcome rest from the hectic
round of parties.
Rushees will pick up their bids
at three o'clock at the League and
then go to their respective houses.
Here they will be eagerly welcomed
by actives and alums.
The Panhellenic Council has
tried to arrange these parties so
they don't conflict with football'
games and campus-wide activities.
Also they distributed the parties
over quite a long period of time
so rushees will have a chance to
keep up with their studies.

out meetings scheduled for 4:15
