We, The Women—
THAT SORORITIES voted nine
to two against taking freshman
women to chapel seems a -frank ad
mission that they find the prolong
ed rushing season has again been
proven unsuccessful. Already this
year a "gentleman's agreement"
has been necessary to call the
wolves off. That regulations have
had to be modified or clarified in
the past proves that it is time to
Time and time again the same
cry has opposed the exisiting plan.
The answer is always in the nega
tive and includes the 'fact that
freshmen should have the oppor
tunity to orientate themselves be
fore facing the question of whether
to "go sorority."
But how, we ask, can they ac
custom themselves to the social
and scholastic sides of College
when sorority women camp in
their rooms from breakfast until
dormitory closing hours. And' how
can sorority women pursue studies
and activities when they must
keep on a freshman's frail lest
some other house get the i"inside
It is fine and dandy 'to talk of
"free associations" and the 'bene
fits freshmen derive from meeting
outstanding sorority women. It is
a good idea. But it just doesn't
work. For, since "free contacting"
has existed on the campus the
good which has come from it has
been overshadowed by the rush
ing bugaboo which, like a snow
ball rolling downhill gains in
momentum and size until sud
denly all else is shut from sight.
It is too late to completely revise
this year's code, but during second
semester Panhellenic Council will
be drawing up next year's rules.
If all houses consent to a short
first semester rush season or to a
silent first semester with formal
rushing second . semester what
could stand in their way?
The time has come to change
the old system.

Want To Reduce 1
Doctors Tell How
"Learn self-denial and avoid
starchy and carbohydrate foods,"
Dr. Harriet M. Harry, College
physician, advises those who want
to loose that extra avoirdupois
during their college careers.
According to Dr. Ruby . Cun
ningham, staff physician at Co
well, California Hospital, weight
reduction can be accomplished by
college women without loss of
stamina or other harmful effects.
To this Dr. Harry adds that if you
want to reduce, seek your doctor's
"Women who want to reduce
should include adequate amounts
of protein and vitamins in their
diets," Dr. Cunningham cautioned.
"Either two average servings of
lean meat, fish or fowl, or one
serving of meat and a large serv
ing of cottage cheese is advisable.
It is also well to include liver in
weight reduction diets."
"Be sure to have three meals a
day," Dr. Harry insists. Her lists
of "omits" include ice cream, cake,
pie, cokes, potatoes, rice, maca
roni, and all beans except thos
of string variety.
An average reducing diet which
should vary according to the in
dividual, according to Dr. Harry
is—breakast: fruit or fruit juice,
cooked cereal, toast, egg, bacon,
milk or coffee; lunch: salad, milk,
fruit dessert, one vegetable; din
ner: meat, fish or fowl, two vege
tables. and dessert or salad sub
That's a starter for your 'Well
worn resolutions to reduce, and
if you're really serious, you'd bet
ter close your eyes when dessert
time rolls around.
