Spring Coats
Will Feature
Chemise Look
By NANCY VERMULLEN
The chemise influence has ex-
tended to spring coats.
So relaxed are these new coat
styles that only an occasional
loose sash belt breaks the unfitted
line.
A bulky top, tapering sleekly to
a narrow hem, is the favorite
silhouette for the "loosened-up"
coats. The oriental influence of
wide Kimono sleeves accentuates
the bulky-top look even more, as
do the bloused and cowled backs.
Necklines Take Over
With this "topheavy" look so
predominant, necklines gain a new
importance., Draped, fringe tied or
mandarin collars are being shown
on many new coats. Long-waisted
styles are favoring cardigan neck-
lines or kerchief collars.
The classic colors of black, gray,,
navy and beige are still in force,
but their popularity is being over-
shadowed this season by the more
off-beat hues of lavender, yellow,
green and coral. The simple styles
of this year allow a brilliance in
color that their more extravagant
predecessors couldn't "get away"
with.
Synthetic Fur Deceives
Two popular newcomers to the
coat scene are the short fur jacket
and the costume coat. Replacing
' the suit jacket, the back-dipping
short fur jacket is being shown
in lightweight synthetic fabrics, in
every shade from pastel beige to
deep charcoal.
The costume look, which boasts.
a wool coat with silk print lining
to match the dress beneath, is be-
ing featured in the newest coat
collections this spring. For either
a Saturday night date or Sunday
morning church, it offers the per-
fect answer for coeds who want
the coordinated look in their
clothes.
Dance Concert
Persons who auditioned for the
Women's A t h 1 e t i c Association
Spring Dance concert may contact
WAA officials for results.
Rehearsals begin at 7:15 p.m.
today in Barbour Gymnasium for
"Vivaldi Ballet." "The Mexican
Legend, Act r is scheduled for
practice at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in
the Barbour Gym Dance Studio.
All choreographers will meet at
2:15 p.m. Friday in the fencing
room of Barbour Gym.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is an inter-
pretive feature based on interviews
with rushees and active4.)
$y ROSE PERLBERG
Daily Activities Editor
As sorority rushing moves into
its second week, we thought we'd
find out how this time-consuming
phenomenon is affecting parties
on both sides.
To get one side of the procedure,
we nabbed some rushees who had
just gone through the mixers or
first set.
Aside from the fact that you
could tell the rushees by their
healthy - if frostbitten - pink
cheeks, they told us, all the wo-
Men had one thing in common: a
big smile. This trademark, we
learned was to last until March 2,
when it would be replaced by a
sick grin.
Topics Didn't Vary
What did they discuss? We
found that topics were rather
unique. There was the zero-degree
weather, bandied about in a light'
vein as soon as rushees could thaw
out their lips; the where-do-you-
live-on-c a m p u s, what-are-you -
studying, and of course the who-
do-you-know-that-I-know game,
played with great relish and en-
thusiasm.
"You're from New York. Oh, do
you know Jane Doe? I went to
camp for six years with her. You
don't? Really? Well, I know she's
from Brooklyn. (Nervous giggle)
or maybe it was the Bronx,. ."
As the mixer chit-chat pro-
gressed, they' said, the air of
tenseness and. forced gaiety gave
way to a more relaxed and pleas-
ant atmosphere. All in all every-
one seemed to be having fun and

there were cries of "what, not al-
ready!" when the time came to
get up and leave.
Rushees 'Hash' Actives
When rushees trooped out of
each house, echoes of . sorority
songs lingering behind them, their
inevitable "hash" session began.
"I don't have to think twice
about my name, where I live, or
my major," we heard from the
muffled depths of a thick woolen
scarf. Her companion laughed,
"You should have heard my room-
mate last night. She was talking
in her sleep. Kept repeating those
things over and over again until
it nearly drove me so crazy I had
to wake her up." I
We caught up with three rushees
who were talking quite seriously
about the houses they'd just vis-
ited. "I really enjoyed that last
house," one declared, "even
though we just had a superficial
conversation,. I feel I'm going to
like it when we go back and can
get to know some of the girls bet-
ter."
Negative Impression
"Well," her friend commented
dubiously, "I rather thought they
were trying to make too much of
an impression. You know, trying
to sell themselves and the house.
I felt a bit uncomfortable."
They turned to the third for her
opinion. "My feet hurt," she com-
plained bitterly. 1
We stopped in at several houses
to see what actives had to say. In
the hustle-bustle of clean-up
squads and song-practice organi-
zation, we got some rather candid
answers.
Very few could honestly say
that they really liked the whole
process, although most were en-
thusiastic about meeting so many
new people. They agreed with
some rushees we'd' talked to that
rushing improved their social poise
and conversational ability.
"Know Your Sisters"
Several pointed out that rush
"really helps you, to get to know
more about your own sorority sis-
ters;" others that it "made the
group more closely-knit."
Of those who wanted to say
anything at all, most condemned
it as "tiring and detrimental to
school work." The over-all label
tacked rushing up as "a social
period, much too drawn out, that
is annually dreaded, but a neces-
sary evil."
But when we asked if they had
any ideas for improving the sys-
tem, we didn't get much more
than a few tired yawns.
