Cook Residents Appreciate
Distinctive Style of Living

II

By SHAR9N EDWARDS
With Portia over the doorway
and Venus in the hall, Martha
Cook building is undoubtedly the
center of more legends and myths
than any other dormitory on cam-
pus.
For example, it is a firmly-
enriched conviction of the major-
ity of the students-male and fe-
male--that Martha Cook residents
all maintain an average of 4.0 or
better. Needless to say, this is not
only completely false, it's im-
possible.

The Building's architecture and
furniture are a blend of English
Gothic and Early Renaissance.
Particularly well-known is the
replica statue of the Venus de
Milo which graces the long corri-
dor on the ground floor. Venus
lends herself to every occasion;
she has been known to wear
everything from an Indian sari to
a Hawaiian grass skirt and lei for
ccasions varying from house
board elections to dances.
Since Martha Cook building res-
idents number never more than
150, are all upperclasswomen or
graduate students, and have each
made application for residency,
they are a more close, friendly
group than the residents of the
larger dormitories. Acceptance for
residency is based on a combina-
tion of activities, scholarship, and
individuality of contribution to the
building.

ARING THE FINISH--Rushing heads toward its climax, but there are itll the little jobs to do, the decisions to be made, and the
stions and comments that take up much time and all the spare energy of fraternity members, IFC officials-and of course, those
o are still waiting to ieceive their verdict.

MASS MEETING-Feature of the first rush meeting is a movie
shown by IFC members, describing rushing and fraternities.

the IFC office at 1510 Student
Activities Building.
Opportunity will also be afford-
ed new students to sign up dur-
ing the summer or at the mass
rush orientation meeting Wednes-
day, Sept. 30, Mueller added.
The mass meeting was consid-
ered to be another facility which
could help more students find
their fraternity. Here representa-
tives from all fraternities are
present, he said, and a rushee can
gain a quick survey of all frater-
nities on campus.
Counseling Important
However, Mueller emphasized
the importance of rush counsel-
ing as a means to de t e rmin e
which houses to rush. He ex-
plained that these men, making
use of information provided them
by the various houses plus their
own knowledge of campus life,
helps them orient a new student
toward the houses that would
probably suit him the best.
Personal counseling will begin
Wednesday, Sept. 23.
After the open house period,

rushees are invited back by the
houses for smokers, lunches and
dinners, so that actives and
rushees can get to know each
other better.
Bids Extended
The houses then extend !bids to
the men of their choice. Mueller
added that one bid does not make
the rushee ineligible for others.
When a rushee accepts a bid, he
signs a pledge card which is due
at the Dean of Men's office by
October 19.
At present there are 42 active
chapters and two colonies on
campus. The presidents of these
houses compose the Fraternity
President's Assembly, the legisla-
tive body of the IFC.
The organization includes five
officers who are chosen annually:
the president, executive and ad-
ministrative vice-presidents, sec-
retary, treasurer. Under these
senior officers are committee
chairmen of various standing
committees,, including fraternity
relations, rush, publications, serv-
ices and office.
