Panihellenic Reveals Plans

For This

Year s

Panhel Ball

The new women's housing unit
and rushing procedures wer dis-
cussed at the Assembly Dorm
Council meeting held Monday at
the League.
A newly formed rushing com-
mittee consisting of members of
Assembly, Panhellenic, IFC and
IHC met last Saturday to discuss
the problems involved in the pres-
eht rushing system and probable
solutions to these problems.
SThe committee will set up a
schedule involving different rush-
ing issues and how much time will
be alloted to each one. Among the
problems discussed were the rush-
ing parties, system of drops, the
interference of rushing with the
student's academic work and the
psychological effect of rushing on
freshmen.
Questionnaires

students. Among the topics In-
cluded in this form are the effect
of rushing on dormitory living,
and the participation of pledges in
dormitory affairs.
Also discussed at the Assembly
meeting was the new women's resi-
denha husng 100 tuens

In connection with the building
of the proposed dorm, the question
of coed versus non coed living was
brought up. It was decided by a
committee that at this time a
Swimming Club
To Beg in Tryouts
For Membership
Ann Arbor women may now
compete in organized swimming
meets through the Ann Arbor
Girls Swimming Club, according
to Ella Rosted, manager of the new
group.
The swimming club is coached
by Mrs. Rose Mary Dawson,
daughter of Matt Mann, former
University of Michigan swimming
coach. The club is organized to
give local women a chance at com-
petitive swimming and diving.
Meetings are held from 5 to 6
p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays
at the Tappan Junior High School
pool. Tryouts will begin today.
Women of all ages are urged to
attend.

womens dorm would serve the
campus better than a coed unit.
Reason for this decision were
concerned primarily with the dif-
ference in cost between a womens
dorm and a coed dorm. Another
important .consideration was the
matter of which type of dormitory
would serve the most students.
The question of keeping Prescott
and Tyler as women's dorms as
they are now was also brought up.
However, it was decided that if
the women have a new dorm along
with Prescott and Tyler Houses
the men would suffer in their
housing facilities. Therefore Pres-
cott and Tyler are being changed
back to men's dorms.
Concerning the Homecoming
display award, it was decided that
the judging of dorm displays will
take place between 10 and 11:30
a.m. Saturday. The award will be
presented at the Homecoming
Dance to a representative of the
winning house.
Left open for discussion was the
question of dorm stores and the
problem of their being profitable
or non-profitable was considered.
