We, The Women —
Pan-Hel Plays A Part
In Promoting Unity
among freshmen and transfers that
sorority membership is a “must”
on this campus seems to have crop
ped up this year more than ever
Already, women who know they
cannot afford sororities are con
fused in believing that without
sorority backing they can never
achieve success in campus activi
ties and social life.
We have always prided our
selves on keeping politics out of
women’s activities here. We have
encouraged and rewarded individ
ual effort. Our positions are filled
with women who have been se
lected solely for their merit anc'
without regard for sorority affilia
What better evidence that no
breach exists between sorority and
non-sorority women is there than
the Panhellenic tea today? Pan
hellenic Council is sincere in ex
tending an invitation to all new
students regardless of any in
tention to “go sorority.” This tea
is an organized get-together in
tended to foster friendly relation
ships among freshmen, transfers,
and sorority women; and everyone
is urged to come. Affiliated women
will not wear their pins, and no
one will segregate into groups.
New students will have an op
portunity to meet Greek women
and judge them at face value. They
should keep in mind that sororities
on this campus are a luxury—not
a necessity/
