SGC Gets Panhel Report;
Dates, Difficulties Listed

(Editor's Note - This is a sum-
mary of the Panhellenic Association
rushing report presented to Student
Government Council last night.)
The first part of the report gives
and explains the mechanics of
spring rushing. They are broken
down into registration, mixers,
second set, third set, fourth set,
final deserts.
The report then lists the prob-
lems of scheduling a spring rush-
ing period. They are:
A) Mechanics:
1) Shortened intercession: Un-
der the deferred rushing program
which lasted from 1945 until 1952
close of final exams. The last time
rushing usually started at the
that spring rushing was carried
out there was a 10 day period be-
tween the close of finals and the
_beginning of classes. Next year
there will be only five days from
the close of exams to the begin-
ning of registration for second se-
Begins After Exams
2. The first calendar proposed
included parties beginning the two
days following the close of exami-
nations. This was rejected by the
research committee because:
a. Increased expense to actives
and rushees by forcing them to
remain on campus when neither
dormitories nor houses served
b. The fatigues of the exam
period are still evident. The Of-
fice of the Dean of Women has
usually sent out a strong recom-
mendation to all housing units
strongly urging that all women
leave the campus for this period.
"I strongly urge that each woman
student leave the campus dur-
ing inter-session, if at all possible.
You need the change after exam-
inations; you will benefit from the
relaxation before the long pull to
spring vacation. One's health,
perspective, emotions, and friend-
ships will all function better for
the recreation that the inter-ses-
sion can provide."
Grades Problem
B) Grades
In order to insure academic eli-
gibility in compliance with the
official University grades must be
University regulations, complete
released before pledging. At the
time the study was made a year
and a half ago, it was hoped and
implied that official grades for
first semester would be available
during the rushing period.
However, it has been found that
although partial grade sheets are
begun in the first week of Febru-
ary, complete and accurate grades
are not available until the last
week in February. This year when
the grades for only 400 pledges
had to be checked for a Febru-
ary 23 initiation not all were avail-
C) Tabulation
During the first week in Febru-
ary the University Tabulating
Services are in the midst of their
heaviest work load. Grades for the
first semester registration of at
students must be compiled. In ad-
dition the normal work of this de
partment must proceed.
For this reason, the Panhelleniu
rushing blanks cannot possibly b
processed with the quick servic
that has been customary. Bruc
Arden, supervisor 'of the service
has requested that we allow tw
days at the end of mixers, sec
ond and third sets.
The report then lists four sam
ple calendars, and one final pro
First Calendar
Calendar A is a sample schedul
from "the Assembly-Panhelleni
Rushing Study Committee."
Mixers begin Feb. 5, the last da
after a free day with the final des

of registration; then, after a free
day, the second and third sets are
conducted. The fourth set comes
serts on Feb. 20 and 21 following
a free day. Pledging would be Feb.
According to the report there
are three weak points in this cal-
endar: rushing period would have
to take more than two and one
half weeks, because of time needed
to get grades; more time needed
for tabulation; Panhel commit-
tee said it would be beneficial to
the rushee if the "second set" was
extended to eight parties. Assem-
bly-Panhel study group did not
consider this.
Second Plan
Calendar B uses a pattern sug-
gested by the Panhel-Assembly
study committee.
Mixers begin Feb. 7, with two
days set aside for tabulation after
the third mixer. Second set takes1
four days, with three day break,
third set takes two days, with two
days for tabulation; fourth set
takes three days with one day for
tabulation; final desserts last two
nights with one day for tabula-
tions. Pledging would be March 2.
This calendar was rejected "be-
cause it extended . . . in the acti-
vity program and brought concen-
trated rushing within a week be-
fore five week exams."
Begins Feb. 23
In calendar C mixers begin Feb.
23 with two days for tabulation
between each set except fourth
and final desserts where only one
day would be needed. It ends
March 16 with pledging.
It was considered because spring
grades would be available and
complied with SGC's ruling that
rushing begin in the spring se-
It was rejected, because "it in-
terfered even more than "B" with
the academic calendar." Rushing
would occur during five week
Mixers Separated
Calendar D calls for isolation of
the mixer period from the formal
rush period. Mixers would be held
Jan. 3, 4, and 5. The report said,
"It has become apparent that the
resumption of classes may be de-
layed until January 6 . . . elim-
inating all possibility of January
mixers." Informal pledging would
take place Feb. 16.
Calendar E is the final sugges-
tion. Registration is set for Nov.
11, 12 and 13 with mixers planned
for the first week-end in Decem-
The second set would last three
days beginning with Feb. 7. Two
days would then be set aside for
tabulating. The third set, a two
day period, would be followed
with another two day break for
' tabulation.
The fourth set requires three
days. A one day break for tabu-
lation follows with the final des-
serts coming in the next two days.
Pledging would take place on
March 2.
"Due to the indefinite January
calendar, December was the next
choice . . . It seemed desirable to
exclude the weekend preceding
Christmas vacation, because of
c heavy academic pressure and so-
h cial events," the report said.

Curriculum that begins next fall on
Thurs., May 2 at 4:00 p.m. in 451 Mason

'U' P laque
A registered historical site
plaque has been presented to the
University by the Michigan His-
torical Commission and will be
dedicated on Friday, June 14.
This plaque, located in front of
the main library, is one of 55 such
markers to be erected at various
schools, universities, and commu-
nities throughout the state as a
result of a $25,000 appropriation
from the State legislature last
"With another appropriation
this year, we plan to erect two to
three hundred markers in the next
four years. Our objective is to ac-
quaint both residents and tourists
of the state with some of the his-
torical sites of Michigan," George
S. May, Historical Sites Specialist
University Regents, who will be
present at the presentation on
June 14, will then go from the li-
brary to the Haven Hall foyer for
a short dedicatory ceremony of
a bronze plaque in honor of the
late Sen. Arthur S. Vandenberg.
