Panhel, IFC To Hold Greek Week

With the dual purpose of ac-
quainting members with the ideal
nature of Greek organizations, and
bringing affiliated students closer
together, Interfraternity Council
and Panhellenic Association are
completing plans for the 1955 ver-
sion of Greek Week to be held
April 17 through 21.
Headed by co-chairmen Jack
Schaupp, of Delta Tau Delta, and
Virginia Abbey, of Delta Gamma,
the University of Michigan Greek
Week will be one of 73 such weeks
sponsored by major colleges and
universities, including eight of the
Big Ten schools.
The tradition originated in 1937
when the University of Minnesota
substituted a Greek Week for Hell
Week. The idea spread to the Uni-
versity of Michigan in 1940 as
Fraternity Week was born.
This first attempt of University
students saw four panels, set up
to discuss rushing, University-fra-
ternity relations, finance and
house management, and scholar-
ship, for the purpose of encourag-
ing more thought about these mat-
ters from the Greeks as a whole.
In 1949, Fraternity Week was
shifted to become Michigan's first
Greek Week as such.
The fun for affiliated students
will begin on Monday, April 17 at
a mass picnic. Chairmen of the
affair, Jerry Goebel, of Phi Delta
Theta, and Harriet Thorn, a mem-
ber of Delta Gamma, have sche-'
duled as the main speaker, Walt
Kelly, creator of Pogo.

Tuesday will bring Panhel work-
shops under the leadership of
Mary Nolan, a Pi Beta Phi. Fol-
lowing these will be a tea spon-
sored by the Ann Arbor Panhel-
lenic group and planned by Joanne
McDonald, Alpha Gamma Delta.
Bridge Tournament
In the evening, presidents of
each house will gather for din-
ner. A new aspect of Greek Week
will be held that night as sorority
bridge teams meet partners from
fraternities for a bridge tourna-
ment.
Don Head, of Lambda Chi Alpha,
and Peggy Hubbard, of Alpha Chi
Omega, will direct the president's
conference to be held at the Fresh
Air Camp on Wednesday, April 19.
Slated for that evening are the
sorority-fraternity exchange din-
ners being arranged by Mary Min-
Bowling Tourney
The inter-house bowling tour-
nament begins Monday. All
students interested in partici-
pating are asked to see their
house athletic managers or to
sign up their team in Rm. 15
of Barbour Gym.
Teams are to:consist of a
minimum of six members. A
house may enter any number
of teams. Tournament rules
may be obtained when a team
signs up. The deadline is noon
today.
