Panhel Head Trades Gavel for Ring

To Martha Hill, '54, goes credit
for finding the often-sought bal-
ance between extra - curricular
work and social life.j
As retiring Panhellenic Associa-'
tion president, Miss Hill has had
frequent occasion to meet Clifford
A. Matts, her fiance and the out-
going head of Inter-Fraternity
C:ouncil, over conference tables
and at joint meetings and pro-
jects-but not so frequently in real
social situations.
"ON FRIDAY nights," she smil-
ed, "we'd study together in the
IFC office, but you can't really call
that a date. In a way, though, it's
nice to be engaged to somebody
you know is busy-you realize that
when he says he has a meeting he
really has and most often you have
one, too."
Summarizing her Panhel work,
Martha decided, "mostly this has
has been a year of trying to
give auhtority to as many peo-
ple as possible." A strong sup-
porter of extra-curricular work,
she feels that "planning and or-
ganizing and seeing how things
are run are a very definite part
of anybody's college education--
as long as they don't overshadow
The senior English major cited
Panhel's fall rushing decision, the
Big Ten Panhel-IFC Conference
and the constitutional changes as
this year's most i m p o r t a n t
"We can look back now and
laugh," she said, "about the rush-
ing controversy and the furor it
created, but there never was any
real friction between Panhel and
Assembly boards over the quds-
tion." -
