Home months that tho student mem
bers of the athletic board were not
in sympathy with the attitude and de

minated with his notion in voting for

elected wore emphatic In declaring
that they were not subservient to the
athletic director. Dr. Clapp said that
he was taking no active part in the

his catspaws. The fact Is evident,
however, that the fear J of the .student
body as to Dr. Clap)'s Intentions
proved' a good campaign argument for
those who knew how to use it. Super

VERY LATEST THING
IS A 80RORITY FOR GIRL8 FROM
ELEVEN TO FOURTEEN.
STARTS AT MISSOURI SCHOOL
Founded at Christian College Which
Already Supports Three Sororities
Including Delta Gamma The
Rushing Not a Bit Tame.
Tho very lat03t Is the Knppa Thetu
PI, a sorority of tiie youngest girls
In college. No student who Is more
than thirteen years old Is eligible for
membership. Imagine girls In knee
dresses riding u Greek letter goat,
threading the maze of a Greek letter
iltual, worshipping at n Greek letter
shrine, calling ench other -'Thlstr
Time," and concluding let'on; "frater
Charter Roll Made.
Tho sorority hasn't been formed yet,
but the roll of charter members, nil of
Christian College, Missouri, has been
.made. One feels the presence of the
new society as Boon as he enters the
door of the college, for the 12-year old
girl who admits visitors wears the lit
tle bow of orange and black which
signifies Hint she is a Kappa Thetu Pi
pledge. Older girls, members of other
sororities who are vei-Bed In the prop
er forms of Greek letter mysteries are
writing the constitution nnd ritual for
them. The new organization will soon
take Its place on the roll of Greek let
For n number of years there have
been three sororities at Christian Col
lege: Eta Upsllon Gamma with six
Teen members; Lamba Mu, with fif
teen members, and Delta Gamma, with
'hlno members. So tho "rushing sea
son" at Christian College Is'not at all
tame. Each active sorority has a
member or tho faculty who acts as
"sponsor" to that particular sorority.
As the name suggests, the duty of
this ofiloial Is to bo responsible for
what her sorority does, and while she
does not voto on now members, she
gives her opinion on candidates. Sho
Is also present at the initiation, both
the solemn, or "third degree," and
the "mock ceremony."
Teacher at Initatlon.
"You see we havo to have some one
from the faculty present at the ipock
initiation, us one of the sororities In
jured a girl several years ago and
tho faculty makes us have a teacher
present. Then wo havo our sponsor
ut tho third degree to make It digni
fied. No ono of our girls is old or dig
nified enough to carry tho ceremony
through right, wo have our sponsor to
act as president"
