Sorority Weekend Means
By Ann Moyer
The word legacy may be
a legal term but to sorority
girls it means the enthusi
astic junior and senior high
school girls who visit our
campus in April and lay
claim to the annual Legacy
Although the weekend
may bring April showers or
remnants of March winds,
these elements of nature
never seem to impair the
fun of actives and legacies
Style Show
In addition to the annual
Panhellenic Legacy style
show previewing the Rush
Week styles for prospective
pledges, Saturday is filled
with any number of ingeni
ous bits of entertainment
ranging from horseback
"iding in Pioneer Park to
...door picnics.
If a legacy isn't treated
to an Ag specialty from th
the trio of Arati Sen, Premila
Khurana and Nirmal Dutta
will sing Tagere song.
The last number prior to
intermission will be a Bhan
gra dance by Balbir Dhillon,
Wasinder Mokha, Xirmalen
du Pandeya, Baljit Gill, Ra
mesh Chandan and Sushil Ni
jhawan. Premila Khurana and Arati
Sen will present their inter
pretation of a Shiva Parbati
dance after intermission. Yo
gi physical exercises will
then be demonstrated by Xa
rendra Singh.
Indian documentary films
will then be shown.
The program will conclude
with a vote of thanks deliv
ered by Agram. Subba Rao
and the playing of the Indian
and American national an
thems, sung by the Inter-Bar-sity
Christian Fellow,
ship group.
the counseling experiment
eight Mortar Boards con
ducted this semester in Ray
mond Hall.
The idea for the counseling
experiment originated in the
Mortar Board chapter. Mem
bers felt a new system was
desirable for the dorm, a sys
tem of more personal and
complete counseling.
"But since we felt it was
fairly audacious to attempt
to set up a counseling pro
gram without any practical
experience, we obtained per
mission from Administration
to obtain that experience this
semester," said Gretchen
Sides, Mortar Board publicity
The plan is a direct result
of the practical experience,
and will provide "what we
hope is the best counseling
system for the Residence
Halls," Miss Sides said.
She added that the original
plans call for both junior and
senior women to serve as
counselors. Details of the
counseling plan and notifica
tion about applications should
be available after Easter Va
cation. 'Have Beard,
Will Tickle'
"Have Beard, will tick
le," is the offer being made
by men in the Beard Con
test on Ag campus.
The card which bears the
phrase also says "Thank
yon for noticing my beard."
Those competing for the
Whisker King Contest give
out the cards to people who
remark "favorably or un
favorably," to the unusual
looking faces.

Bailey Seeks
'Good Health9
In English
Prof. Dudley Bailey, di
rector of freshman English,
urged the convention of the
Conference on College Com
position and Communications
in Cincinnati to adopt a set
of proposals for sweeping
changes in the organization.
The proposals would limit
the activities of the national
group to the nature and use
of language in written dis
course. Dr. Eailey, submitting a re
port prepared by a five-man
committee, said, "Diversity
and experimentation are
healthy things. But nobody in
his right mind thinks that
the present diversity of re
quired first-year English
courses in Anerican universi
ties reflects good health.
"It reflects a frightening
state of disease clearly psy
chosomatic one. We must re
solve to stop being all things
to all men; we must stop rid
ing our private hobby-horses
in a hundred different direc
tions." . ,
The committee which pre
pared the report was selected
last year to chart the future
direction of the organization
and of freshman English in
American colleges and universities.
