S:*~*."-~.....~.'-..Picnic Suppers, 'Final I
x r tYHighlight Second Wee

rai r .Av* Nr
'k of Rushing


Outdoor picnic suppers, complete
with all the trimmings, highlighted
the opening of the second week of
the fall sorority rushing program
last night.
Picnic suppers will also be on
deck tonight and tomorrow, as sor-
ority members and rushees move
into the final stage of the game.
With the field narrowed down, both
groups will be surveying each oth-
er with a critical eye, in prepara-
tion for the final choice.
Rushees spend an hour and a
half at each house during the out-
door parties, the fourth set in the
series. Jeans, slacks and the ever-
popular bermudas are official at-
tire, as the coeds eat, talk and sing
in the carefree atmosphere which
the picnic creates.
"Final Desserts"
On Thursday and Friday eve-
nings, "final dessert" parties will
round out the rushing schedule.
Very dressy occasions, these last
parties give the rushees a chance
to return to the two houses they
would most like to pledge.

Impressive ceremonies, attrac-
tive refreshments and a final
chance to become acquainted are
all a part of "final desserts."
After the last set of parties, each
rushee will turn in a preference
card, on which are 'written the
houses she would be willing to
pledge. The sororities also turn in
lists. The two lists are matched by
Panhellenic Association, in prepa-
ration for the distribution of bids
on Sunday.
There will be a meeting of
the WAA Board at 5 p.m. today
in the WAB.
The Field Hockey Club will
hold an organizational meeting
at 5 p.m. tomorrow in the WAB.
The club is looking forward to
a full schedule of games with
other schools. Both beginners
and experienced players are in-
vited to attend.

After picking up her bid at 2 p.m.
Sunday, the happy pledge will go
to her new house for pledging cere-
monies and reunions with her new
Sigh of Relief
Most rushees and actives alike
will heave a sigh of relief after
the hectic and time-consuming
rushing season over, although al-
most all of them will maintain that
it was certainly worth the effort.
Registration for the 1954 rushing
program, in which 1160 coeds took
part, was held during orientation
week, with "mixers" starting Sat-
urday, Sept. 18.
These very informal partiesolast-
ing until Monday, Sept. 20, gave
rushees and sorority members a
chance to meet each other. During
this first set, each rushee visited
all 18 sorority houses on campus,
under the leadership of one of the
19 rushing counselors.
Another set of six informal par-
ties followed the mixers, with
sweaters, bobby sox and skirts the
suggested attire. Each house built
this set around a special theme.

PICK A CARD-Above, a group of fraternity members demon-
strates its mascot's prowess at card tricks to some of the record
number of rushees attending open houses at fraternities this fall.
At right actives and prospective pledges take time out for a "pause
that refreshes," the cider and soft drinks that are an important
part of informal fraternity rushing.
Over 7,000 Rushees
See FraternityHouses
This semester a record number

of men took advantage of the op-
portunity to see the fraternity
houses and meet the members on
the first two days of rushing, when
over 1000 rushees visited the open
"This is the greatest year for
interest in fraternities in the his-
tory of the system," said John
Calvin, publicity chairman of IFC.
Yesterday and Sunday the rush-
ees were able to visit the houses
and speak with the members on a
very informal basis. They went
through the rooms, were served
cider and doughnuts and learned
about the history of the house.
Smoker To Be Held
The rest of the week a series of
luncheons and smokers, also in-
formal, will be held to better ac-
quaint the rushees with the habits
of the house and the type of food
served, These meetings will also
help to distribute the men to the
houses in which they are interest-
Next week, dinners and smokers
will give the prospective pledges
an outlook on the slightly more
formal side of fraternity life. Dur-
ing this time the fraternities will
let specific rushees know, usually
by personal contact, that they
would like them to pledge.
The prospective member may
either accept immediately or he
may wait until 9 p.m. Sunday,
when his pledge card is due giving
the name of the fraternity he
wishes to pledge.
Rushing Counselors
During orientation week, each
freshman was assigned to a rush-
ing counselor. There are 43 coun-
selors, one from each fraternity.
If the rushee wishes to get'con-
fidential information about a

house he is interested in, he can
contact his counselor, who will let
him see the files for the house. In
this way, he can find out about
the past record of the fraternity.
If a man has forgotten the name
of his counselor, he should con-
tact the IFC office
Assembly Makes

"Most American coeds are over-
weight," commented Dr. Margaret
Bell, head of the Women's Depart-
ment of the Medical Service and of
the Women's Physical Education
It was emphasized by Dr. Bell
however that it is very difficult
to tell if a person is overweight or
underweight since there are so
many determining factors. Bone
structure, weight, and the amount
of muscle and fat differ with each
Since muscle tissue is much
heavier than fat tissue, it is pos-
sible for two persons of the same
bone structure and height to weigh
the same, even if one is thin and
the other quite plump.
Heredity Isa Factor
Dr. Bell stated that heredity de-
termines one's build in the frame
structure and in the tendencies to-
ward being overweight or under-
weight. However, beyond these
points, she believes that muscle
tone is the most all important fac-
tor of a good build.
"Since most all people want to
always have a good strong build,"
Dr. Bell related, "each must have
a foundation of muscle." She also
remarked the girl with the softness
of skin in her twenties will be the
wrinkled old lady in her forties.
It is important for every college
coed to realize this tendency and
to work on her muscular develop-
ment since it will be too late in
later years.
Exercise Helps
Exercise helps in that it reduces
fat, and when muscles are firmer
they will also be smaller. Pamph-
lets describing various exercises
and their effects will be issued at
Barbour Gymnasium to all inter-

University Hospital Honors
Student Volunteer Service

However, according to Dr. Bell,
"The secret of success in conquer-
ing a tendency toward being over-
weight is to have knowledge of
foods and their contents."
Dr. Bell also stressed the impor-
tance of eating three good meals a
day. Breakfasts should be rich in
proteins offered in such foods as
eggs and bacon.
Bulky Food for Lunch
Lunches should consist of bulky
low calorie foods such as fruits,
vegetables and some potato or sim-

ilar food. Dinners should be well
balanced with a minimum of high
calorie foods such as pastries,
sweets, breads and crackers.
Good posture and grooming also
add to make a pleasing picture of
In conclusion, Dr. Bell stated,
that the most important thing in
"keeping in trim" is for a person
to learn the best pattern for him-
self, and to stick to it in order to
keep his weight under control for
his lifetime.

Assembly Dormitory Council
voted yesterday to recommend to
Dean Deborah Bacon that the dor-
mitories be allowed to have one
open-open house each semester.
The dormitories are now allowed
only one per year, and the repre-
sentatives felt that there was an
increased interest in open-open
houses. If the ruling is passed by
Dean Bacon, the individual dorms
still maintain the right to hold
only one per year if they so choose.
It was again announced that pe-
titioning is open for the positions
of executive vice-president, exe-
cutive board member and public
relations chairman.
The executive vice-president is
chairman of the League House
Council, which helps the league
houses with their problems. The
executive board member serves on
the Assembly Board and the pub-
lic relations chairman handles the
publicity for Assembly.
Chairmen of the newly organiz-
ed committees were appointed,
including Beverly Ashby as head
of the service committee, Mary Jo
Park, constitution committee and
Gloria Swego, elections committee.
