RUSHEES, ACTIVES ENJOY PUNCH, COOKIES AT PARTIES

By JAN SMITH
In spite of wind and weather, a
record 1160 coeds visited the 19
campus sorority houses this week-
end, opening the 1954 fall rushing
season.
Clad in casual skirts, sweaters,
and bobby sox, rushees and soror-
ty members met each other in.
the informal atmosphere of "mix-
ers."
Traveling from house to house
in groups of about 60, rushees
spent 40 minutes at each mixer.

Four stops were on the agenda on
Saturday and Sunday afternoons
and yesterday evening, with three
mixers on the schedule Saturday
and Sunday evenings.
After shedding sweaters or rain-
coats and umbrellas, the freshmen,
sophomore, and junior women par-
ticipating in the rushing program
were seated in informal groups
among the sorority members.

jects. explored as rushees attempt-
ed to evaluate the various sorori-
ties and the actives began the
first step in taking in new mem-
bers.
The bewildering aspect of trav-
eling all over the campus area in
search of 19 sorority houses was
lessened for rushees by the rush-
ing counselors, operating under the
direction of the Panhellenic Asso-
ciation. Each of the 19 counselors
conducted a ;roup of coeds from
house to house, checked to see that
they all understood the rushing
system, and answered questions.
Rushees will be on their own
when the second set of parties be-
gins tomorrow evening. Although
the counselors will not take their
groups to the parties, they will be1
available as advisors.
Casual skirts and sweaters will
be the order of the evening during
this second set of parties, which
lasts through Friday.
Third Set of Parties
Prospective sorority members
will have an opportunity to visit
the houses and their annexes dur-
ing the third set of parties, on the
calendar for Saturday evening and
Sunday afternoon. Suits will be the
recommended attire during these
parties.
During the last week of the rush-
ing program the fourth set of par-
ties, informal picnic suppers held
outside, will take up Monday,

League Gives
Tutoring Aid
To Students
"Low five week grades may be
a sign that freshmen need the serv-
ices of the League Merit-Tutorial
Committee," Chairman Barbara
Uebel advises.
The committee aids studentsF
seeking academic help by provid-f
ing them with the name and phone
number of a tutor specializing in
their particular subject. The tutor
and the student\make their own ar-
rangements for the time and place
of tutoring. Hourly rates are
charged with the fee $1 an hour for
every subject except physics and
chemistry, which are $2 an hour.

In recent years the Women's
Staff of The Daily has prided it-
self in putting out an Activities
Page rather than a Women's Page.
Fashions and social affairs are
now almost crowded off the page
by news and features on campus
projects. The Women's Staff tries
to appeal to the campus-as-a-whole,
covering the doings of all Univer-
sity organizations and their cor-
relation with each other, as well
as those community affairs direct-
ly connected with them.
The women's contingent of The
Daily consists of a women's edi-
tor, two associate editors, night edi-
tors and "soph staffers." Each
term a new group of tryouts learn
the fundamentals of head-writing,

proof-reading and writing stories
in "Daily style."
At the end of their first semester
they receive "beats" covering cam-
pus and'community organizations
and their news..
After one or two terms on the
Women's Staff, coeds advance to
writing news stories, features, spe-
cial interviews and planning pic-
ture-pages and are finally promot-
ed to night editors, which includes
being responsible for the Activities
Page one night a week.
Experience is not necessary for
the staff and openings are avail-
able to coeds of all classes. Try-
out meetings for the Women's Staff
will be held 4:15 and 7:30 p.m. to-
day and at 5 p.m. tomorrow at the
Student Publications Building.
