Panhel Defers
Formal Rushing
Deferred formal rushing will
again be the procedure this year;
according to Jane Wetmore,
chairman of the Panhellenic rush-
ing committee.
According to this program, for-
mal sorority rushing will not start
until the beginning of the spring
semester. There will be informal
rushing in the fall term for those
houses who wish to participate,
but first semester freshmen are
not eligible for this rushing per-
iod. It will begin as soon as or-
ganization is' possible.
Informal rushing will again
be held in the spring term im-
mediately after formal rushing.
All coeds registered for formal
rushing will not have to re-reg-
ister for informal rushing.
The Panhellenic Association has
decided to stress the honor sys-
tem in preference to the contact
rules system. There are three con-
ditions under the honor system.
First, independent women are not
to enter sorority houses; second,
sorority women are not to enter
dormitories; and third, the two
should not strive to form new
friendships. This system is effec-
tive as soon as school starts.
Sororities will strive to create
as informal an atmosphere as
possible during the rushing per-

MEMBERS of the Merit-Tutor-
ial Committee in the League
aids deficient students in finding
tutors and keeps the activity files
up to date for the use of students
and campus organizations.
The Merit section of the com-
mittee keeps a complete file of all
undergraduate women and the
extra - curricular activities in
which they have participated. The
cards bear each coed's picture,
address, phone number and class.
With these cards are person-
nel reports made out by the
various chairmen of committees,
presidents of clubs and heads of
other activities. These person-
nel reports are sent into the
committee at the end of every
semester and are used to com-
pile each women's activity point
record. The reports are also
used for the benefit of the Of-
fice of the Dean of Women, the
Social Director of the League,
Judiciary Council, League com-
mittees and honor societies, who
by referring to the files, may
find just the coed they need to
work on some activity. The files
are also used as references by
employers of Michigan gradu-
Not only the activities in which
a coed has taken part, but also a

report on how well she did the
job is kept in the records. These
files are very important, and it
is to each coed's advantage that
her card be kept up to date, ac-
cording to Donis Murray, chair-
man of the Merit-Tutorial com-

dergraduate Office of the

the committee. Information on
all League activities may be
found there.
In addition to their regular
duties, the members of the com-
mittee have undertaken the job
of setting up an information
booth in the Merit-Tutorial Room

the League. The booth is equipped
with information on practically
everything on campus and in Ann
