Mortar Board
Pledging Nears
Activities, Grades
Count in Choosing
Honorary Pledges
With the pledging of women to
Mortar Board, an annual event
of the Junior Weekend all-cam
pus luncheon, looming in the near
future, junior students are be
coming increasingly more con
scious and concerned with mem
bership requirements.
At the ceremony, members,
dressed in their traditional caps
and gowns, form a procession
and wend their way over the cam
pus lawns, selecting pledges and
giving to each a red rose.
Among the requirements for
membership in this national sen
ior women’s honorary, the schol
arship one is very important,
Janet Goresky declared. A mini
mum accumulative GPA of 2.75
is required. Other qualities hav
ing a great deal of weight in the
selection of candidates are the
number and kinds of activities
they have taken part in, service
to school, democratic feeling and
policy, and membership in the
junior class with possession of
a junior certificate.
There can be no fewer than
five juniors pledged and no more
than twenty, the number depend
ing on how active the candidates
have been. Honorary members
are also pledged. These members
are people who have done some
service to the school.
The local Mortar Board chap
ter was organized on this cam
pus on a national scale in 1923,
and w as formed from a local
senior women’s honorary.

Leading a life of quiet restful
ness in the pill palace are 19 in
mates, who claim they are slowly
dying of boredom. Possible ex
ception to this is Reba Roseberg,
who would be very happy, being
the only girl interned at the pres
ent. Reba, however, says it’s not
much fun because she never sees
the 9 men.
Musketeers Oxman, Hoyt, and
Foster claim they have sneak
dates with each other every night
between thermometers, and make
a flying trip out to—well, you
know where.
To break the monotony of their
existence Clyde Rose and Alva
