We, The ffrom,en—
Advice On Dating
THE OTHER DAY a freshman
woman asked us what men's fra
ternities it is preferable to date in
and the names of houses to avoid.
For other freshmen who might
ask the same question, we repeat
the advice we gave her:
"Don't shun any house. In every
one you will find some men you
might like to date and , men you
would not like to go with. You
can't rate a house by one man in
it, and neither can you rate a man
by one of his brothers.
"There are houses in which you
will find the men more congenial
with their dates and with their
brothers, but this is true in other
groups. There are also houses
which socialize more than others.
but this can happen in any group,
"So, don't put a dating ban on
any fraternity because of a date
which turned out to be a flop, and
don't shun a man beCause one of
his brothers wasn't smooth.
"While many people may try to
classify fraternities as poor, good,
or excellent date possibilities, no
one has ever succeeded in making
any classification which puts any
house on a dating black list.
"So ignore the person who may
advise you not to date in a par
ticular house. Let her pick her
dates, but you choose yours."
