Rushing Period Sets Rapid Pace



Obal To Speak on 'Economic
Considerations of Conservation'



The door swings open wide and several of the fraternity brothers
rush onto the porch to greet a new rushee with glad smiles and glad
Thus begins the biannual college phenomenon appropriately
termed rushing.
Rushees are rapidly ushered into the fraternity house. Hands
appear from all directions waiting to be firmly shook. The rushee's
coat is doffed and disappears into another room.
One of the fraternity brothers subtly takes the rushee's elbow and

"This is the cold' dorm .. . just
right if you're warm blooded. I
prefer the warm dorm myself.
That's right across the hall there.'
Downstairs again both rushee'
and fraternity brother have a
chance to sit down and become
better acquainted through the
convenient medium of "small talk."
"How are your studies coming?
Would you like a cigarette? Where
did you say you are from? Oh, do
you know ..."
Finally the rushee makes some
comment about having several
other houses to go to. Arrange-
ments are made for him to return

Once Burton Tower has struck
the hour of 9 p.m., and all rushees
have left the fraternity houses in
proper accordance with Inter-Fra-

fraternity men begin the nightly

called a "clod," and gets "axed."

However, a bad impression at
one fraternity may be a good im-
pression at another.
As the rushee returns for smok-

pass rapidly by, the pace increases.
Finally the field of choice is nar-
rowed down, and the fraternities
begin bidding for new members.
At this point the option of prefer-
