average for sorority pledge
activation be raised from
2.0 to 2.2.
The resolution, which will
be given to the new consti
tution committee, states that
each house can set the re
quired accumulative average
for activation of upper class
pledges.
PLEDGE INITIATIVE
The reasoning behind this
resolution is to increase
pledge initiative to study,
and to improve overall
scholarship, according to
S h a r i Mueller, Panhellenic
president.
Miss Mueller said that first
semester last year the all
sorority average slipped be
low the all-women's average,
but was raised second semes
ter above the all-women's
average.
In other business the presi
dent said that Panhellenic
will definitely have a com
bined rush . book for rush
next year.
RUSH BOOKS
Previously, each house sent
out rush books during the'
summer before rush to in
troduce rushees to their
sorority.
"The houses were limited
financially as to the number
of rush books they could
send out," she said. With a
combined book each girl will
get information from each
house.
The book will allow a set
number of pages for each
house, she explained.
Miss Mueller said that most
of the Big 8 schools employ a
combined rush book and that
the University sends out com
bined rush books.
EDITOR
The Panhellenic Rush Coun
cil, which is composed of
the rush chairmen from
each house, has decided on

editor of the combined rush
book.

have a 2.3 accumula
tive average, explained the
president.
She said that an assistant
chairman will also be chos
en. Requirements for assis
tant chairman are the same,
but sophomores are also
eligible.
Miss Mueller said that ap
plications should be sub
mitted to Trish Sultzbaugh
at Gamma Phi Beta or the
Panhellenic Office by Oct.
27, and that interviews will
be Oct. 29.

PANEL DISCUSSION on Vietnam held Tuesday featured (left

Panel
Discuss
By ANDY CORRIGAN
Junior Staff Writer
Doves rested softly in the
main lounge of the Student
Union Tuesday as three anti
war advocates took the stand
at a special Hyde Park For
um on Vietnam in conjunc
tion with ASUN's Vietnam
Week.
Ivan Volgyes, assistant
professor of political science,
Phillip Scribner, assistant
professor of philosophy, and
Lawrence Poston, assistant
professor of English jointly
advocated United States'
withdrawal from Vietnam in
the hour-long discussion.
In his opening remarks
Volgyes emphasized that, he,
as a political scientist, was
not dealing with moral issues
but with the war's effects on
US., foreign policy.
"This war is against our
national interests. A nation
must guard its survival and
growth and this war endan
gers our very survival," said
Volgyes.
Volgyes outlined six points
to support his stand. First,
the U.S. is spreading its de
fenses very thin and if the
U.S. had to amass troops in
another part of the world it
would be impossible.
Second, there is a possibili
ty of Chinese intervention
and in this event the U.S.
would be forced to use nu
clear weapons. Third, the ex
isting rift between China and
the Soviet Union is being nar
rowed and will eventually
consolidate to form an anti
American front.
Fourth, the growth within
the U.S. has been brought to
a standstill and we are un
able to combat our internal
problems. At this point
Volgyes asked, "To whom
are we responsible? Our
budget, she explained.
DEFERRED RUSH
Panhellenic discussed
deferred rush at Monday's
meeting. Panhellenic is
against a defered rush sys
tem, she said, but at least
we want to have a choice
if the Regents do pass it.
She said that a summary
of the present rush system,
including suggestions for im
provement in the system, will
be presented to the Regents in
December.
The representatives dis
cussed problems of the pres
ent rush system, said Miss
Mueller, suggestions were
made, to extend rush week
for a longer time period.

selves or South Vietnam?"
Fifth, the war momentari
ly stimulates the U.S. econo
my but in the long run will
prove detrimental.
Sixth, the U.S. is not en
hancing its position as de
fender of freedom by contin
uing this war and is losing
prestige in the world commu
nity. Poston attacked U.S. inter
vention in South Vietnam
from the standpoint of "let's
check our premises."
"The state department is
operating on the assumption
that the Communists are try
ing to undermine us, that
there is a communist con
spiracy afoot that plans to
take over the world," Poston
stated.
The second assumption that
we operate under is that we
must stop the communists in
Vietnam so as to dissuade
them from further aggres
sion, according to Poston.
He stressed that both as
sumptions were false and
that as a result we are in a
pointless war.
"In reality we cannot hope
to win this war. In five years
or maybe twenty years the
best we will have accom
plished is a stalemate and at
a cost that is totally out of
proportion to the gains," he
said.
In his bid for withdrawal
from Vietnam, Scribner said
that at the present the U.S.

is at a political and military
stalemate.
"We have not gained any
extensive support from our
allies and we have failed to
construct a viable govern
ment for the Vietnamese peo
ple," he said.
Scribner stressed the in
adequacies of the present
South Vietnam government
saying that they had failed in
their attempts at land reform,
had little control over the vil
lages, were incapable of re
solving the refugee problem,
and upheld an unfair election
last September.
Although all three men
agreed that the U.S. should
pull out of Vietnam they dif.
fered as to the type of with
drawal that should be
utilized.
Volgyes advocated cessa
tion of the bombing followed
by the U.S. disavowing sup
port of the present govern
ment. "We should then encourage
the new government to nego
tiate with North Vietnam. We
should have no part in the
negotiations since you can
only control the things you
own and we don't own them,"
he said.
In opposition to Volgyes
stand, Scribner felt that the
U.S. should take part in the
negotiations because the U.S.
has an obligation to create a
reasonably peaceful transi
tion of governments.
most nominations were semi,

A panel of judges chose
these 10 girls from the final
