We, The Women —
Helpful Suggestions
for Pop-In Night
POP-IN NIGHT has always been
an ivy-clad custom with Penn
State women. This tradition, which
was established to further friendly
relations among coeds, will again
be observed Sunday night when
upperclasswomen visit freshman
coeds in their rooms.
Traditionally this evening .of
making acquaintances with cam
pus newcomers has been abused.
It has been turned into an oppor
tunity .for pre-season rushing by
sorority women who are anxious to
get out leadpipes and camp in
freshman rooms.
For a really successful Pop-In
Night we suggest that upperclass
women wear name cards and visit
downtown dorms as well as Mac
Hall and Women’s Building. Totfm
freshman houses; are Locust Lane
Lodge at- 312 Locust Lane, Anchor
age at Reaver and Atherton Ave
nues, and McCormick at 225 S.
Allen Street. Freshman coeds are
also located in the following
dorms: Mrs. Reman, 236 S. Frazier
St.; Mrs. Bart,' 222 W. College
Ave.; Mrs. Forbes, 129 S. Miles
St.; Nitiany Co-op, 244 E. Nittany
Ave.; and Student Co-op, 425 S.
Allen St. The two transfer dormi
tories are: Wiley, 134 OE. Foster
Ave.; and Parker, 228 S. Allen
St. And don’t forget the three
freshmen in Grange playroom and
the town students.
Non-sorority women as well as
sorority affiliates should do their
part Sunday night. All upperclass
women should visit as many rooms
as possible.

Meefing Last Night
Limits Rush Code
Unanimously agreeing that no
organized rushing of any kind will
be held - first semester, sorority
rushing chairmen and the execu
tive committee of Panhellenic
Council met last night in Atherton
Hall to ban high pressure rush
methods which were beginning to
be evidenced this week.
Violations of this “gentlemen’s
agreement” among houses will
necessitate reversion to last year’s
code which free asso
ciation, the group threatened.
The present j:ode was reinterp
reted to provide that no organized
chapels Cattending in large groups)
or downtown “coke” parties will
be held until intensive rushing
starts next semester. The group
restated that until October 9 Pan
hellenic rules stipulate literally a
“free association” which is to be
used to further friendly relations
among freshmen, transfers, and
sorority women.
Agreeing yesterday afternoon
that the code had been abused and
that rushing had already begun,
the executive committee headed by
Jean A. Krauser ’42, Panhellenic
vice president and rushing chair
man, called the rushing chairmen
together last night.
It was established that after Oc
tober 9 freshmen can visit upper
class sorority women in dormitory
rooms but not in sorority houses,
and that from now on freshmen
are not obliged to attend chapel
when invited. s
Further code clarifications will
be made in Senior Sponsor meet
ings which will be held throughout
next week.
