FACULTY WOMEN'S CLUB -- and Sundstrand


A record number of 1090 men
are taking advantage of the op-
portunity to visit fraternity houses
and meet members during the two
weeks of rushing.
"This is the greatest year
for interest in fraternities," said
Charles Weir, IFC fraternity rela-
tions chairman. "At the present
time there are 43 fraternities as
compared to 42 at this time last
Membership has also steadily
increased with a record number
of 900 pledges last year."
2,000 in Fraternities
At the present time there are
approximately 6850 undergraduate
men with 2000 of these members
of fraternities.
The first Sunday and Monday
of rushing were set aside for open
houses. At this time men could
visit any of the houses on campus.
They were shown through the
houses and met the members on
an informal basis.
Smokers and luncheons were
held last Tuesday through Satur-
day. At these affairs rushees had
an opportunity to become ac-
quainted with the financial mat-
ters and living accommodations
offered by the various houses.
Men rushing also learned of
various house activities such as
I-M sports and scholarship stand-,

ing. Refreshments were also serv-
ed at the smokers.
Rushing will take on more ser-
ious aspects this week as the
smokers and luncheons continue.
Prospective pledges began receiv-
ing formal bids this week. Today
is the first day that men can of-
ficially pledge.
Most fraternities will hold their,
formal initiation ceremonies on
either Sunday or Monday.
Rushing Rules
Rushing rules are enforced by
a committee made up of the house
presidents. "We have very few
infractions of the rules and none
have occurred this year," Weir
Each fraternity appoints a rush-
ing chairman. During and before
rushing this man completely dis-
affiliates from his house when he
is advising rushees.
Each counselor has 'office hours'
at the IFC office at the Union at
which time he is available to an-
swer rushees questions.
All pledges automatically be-
come members of junior IFC.
Each pledge class elects a repre-
sentative, usually the president,
to act as its representative on this'
The president of junior IFC has
chairmanship status on the IFC
executive board.
