One hundred and two women students were pledged to State college
sororities this week according to the
announcement of Dean Helen Hall
Moreland who supervised the formal
rushing. This announcement comes
as a result of the three affairs held
on February 3, 4, and 5, when the
upperclass members of sororities entertained members of the class of
1941 and new students.
The total list of one hundred and
two pledges shows an increase of
twenty over last year's total, with
seven upperclassmen and ninety-five
freshmen receiving bids. Chi Sigma
Theta heads the list with twentyfour pledges. Kappa Delta is second
with fifteen, closely followed by
Gamma Kappa Phi with thirteen
new pledges.

by the office of the dean of women,

said about his very striking and individual personality, He has a short,

compositions for the violin. Asked
why he didn't compose. Seidel replied, "Why should I? There are so

Junior Advisors
Beginning with the 1937-1938 school
year, the orientation program at State college embodied several changes—outstanding among which was that which turned
junior guides into junior advisors.
In past years entering freshmen had
been escorted through the college buildings, subjected to a few lectures on "advice
and instruction to freshmen" and then left
alone in a maze of new surroundings and
situations to pick their way as best they
could. To be sure, a few of them were
sometimes fortunate enough to locate their
junior brother or sister, but most junior
guides considered their duty completed
after they had written a word of welcome
on a penny postcard arid dropped it into a
mail box.
Then the class of '39 took over the responsibility of orientating the freshmen and
proceeded to carry out the new plans set
up by the administration. The present system divides the entering class into small
groups of approximately ten, and each
group is in charge of an advisory committee composed of one faculty member, two
juniors, and one sophomore. It is the duty
of the advisors to get to know each freshman personally and offer advice or help in
any way that it may be needed.
One of the best features of this plan is
that the freshman student is not left to himself after the firsl week of school. The advisory committee seeks to aid and guide its
freshman group during the entire first year.
Occasional meetings are held to discuss the
freshmen in that group and their success as
college students.
From our observations of the freshmen
during the past semester, the new system of
advisors seems to be successful. Congratulations—to the administration for the welcome changes, and to the juniors for putting them into effect.
Our squawk this week is directed at our perennial amicable
enemies, the sororities and their
official agency, the Intersorority
council. We like sororities, really,
and think they're useful in State
in order to bring out the best
social aspects of the girl. In the
issue omitted before the fortnight of horror embracing examinations, our elder castigator was
going to state views upon what
not to judge a sorority by, but
luckily, perhaps, the sour grape
juice was left in the vat to keep
for further aging. Now, we go
about to cut down the faults
surrounding the council.
The faults of sorority rushing
lie in the fact that the sororities
have too extended a rush period.
During this long duration of
time the sororities begin to
throw more and more of the soft
goo of inkish nature, that is so
bad for friendship between the
groups. Another trouble with
the present system is that the
formal rush period comes at the
world's most inopportune time.
After the hecticism of exam weeks
has caused the sisters to lose
half their hair they must face
the gruelling grind of formal
rushing. Perhaps some of the
girls can face this with a- great
deal of grace, but we know of a
few who could not and did not.
The freshmen women by the
