I'll get ’em all,” he said.

tion, stating that illegal rushing i

Smith suggested a possible al- \

to study that possibility.
"Hands Off” Favored
Larry Dean, Sigma Nu presi
dent, moved that a "hands off”
policy be followed by the fraternity
men in dealing with freshmen all
day Monday and late Friday night,
j The only objection was raised by
I Beta Theta Pi President Ken Ball,
who cal^-d the policy "unfriendly.” !
When the freshmen register
Monday afternoon using their own
initiative .they will obtain their,
unofficial date card at a centra!
They can fill this card with six
dates, restricting each house to!
two dates, by contacting the fra-1
ternities which will be represented j
behind smaller desks.
That evening they will return to ■
mingle on the floor with fraternity
men in the usual rush week fash- ;
ion. Each fraternity man, identi
fied by a pin which will name his
fraternity, will contact the pledges
he desires and also help the rush
ees find the fraternity representa
tive they might seek.
After attending one date at a
fraternity a rushee will be able to
break succeeding dates with that
house at the student affairs office
He will be able to sign up for
any other fraternity he desires.
Fraternities will post their drop
lists in the rushing headquarters
each morning and will probably
send representatives to sign up
rushees dropped by other houses.
Friday night the frosh will list
their preferences in first, second
and third choices from 10:00 to i
12:00 at the rushing headquarters. I
The fraternities must have their |

suggestions t > rushing freshmen:
1. Don't wear your high school
2. Keel natural and don't get
hepped up and worried. Just re
member that the fraternities arc
just as eager as you are.
3. Try to follow the rushing
rules as closely as possible.
