Thereafter Greekletter societies will have a chance toinvestigate men for pledging Winterquarter, and any fraternity pledg¬ing after Monday will be held strict¬ly liable to the Interfraternity coun¬cil.It was estimated yesterday byMaroon reporters that of the entireclass of freshmen men only 229 werepledged to secret societies. This isthe smallest number of pledges forthe last three or four year, a resultcaused by the new Interfraternityruling which put strict limitationsfor the pledging period. In pastyears there have been thirteen orfourten pledges to a fraternity, theaverage for this quarter is nine mento every society.“The new rushing rules are un¬doubtedly a success," Amick said.“The fraternities have observedthem with characteristic sportsman¬ship.

Cupid is puz¬zled and perhaps aroused! Is a fra¬ternity pin the same in effect as anengagement ring? If a girl wearsa man’s fraternity pin, are they en¬gaged?Thes are questions which havestirred the world to its romantic heart since officials at theUniversity of Delaware have orderedyouths who had given their badgesto girls to recall their insignia orannounce their engagements.Traditions PasseOne group at Pitt and Tech claimthat the old traditions are passe andthat the wearing of a fraternity pinno longer denotes wedding bells orthe immediate possibility of matri¬mony—“Qnly affection and all thatsort of thing.” But still there is an¬other coterie in the Eastern univer¬sities that holds a fraternity badge,as binding as a diamond, and muchmore economical for the time being.“Sister pins” are becoming thelatest novelty. These enable the col¬legian to give a pin to a girl, wear one himself, and avoid all possibilityof being mistaken as a pair about toembark on the seas of matrimony.“It isn’t wise anyhow to wear afraternity pin unless you are en¬gaged,” one campus girl confessedto a Maroon reporter. “Other mendon’t come around if you do.”Fine Men NowThe question of the rights of indi¬vidual members to dispose of theirpins is coming up frequently amongthe different campuses. One frater¬nity is said to impose a fine of $50on any man who permits a girl towear his pin and does not marry her.Another fraternity has a nationalfund for redeeming fraternity pinswhich have been pawned. The menwho ' pawn pirs are expelled; Onefraternity upheld in the police courtsone of their members who had beenlocked up for forcibly removing theemblem of his fraternity, whichsome fond lad hpd bestowed ir» hisbugftlic moment, from a dancer in aPittsburgh cabaret.Butfstill—it is Leap Year. Sup¬pose the pins are taken seriously bya sex that has a small sense of hu¬mor? Are pledge pins, too, asequally Finding? . - , Mops are no longer mysterious.The purchasing department of theUniversity knows all about themnow. Not only does it knfiw whatmops are best, but it knowf why.The Cotton JMop test, ttegun ointhe summer of 1923, and reportedlast year in The Daily Maroon asbeing under way, is now completedin every detail, after one year of investigation, and is described in areport just issued. The Purchasingdepartment undertook the exp eri-ment as its contribution to the pro¬gram of the Educational Buyers’ as¬sociation. The purpose was to de-j termine the kinds of mops bestadapted to use by the janitors of theUniversity.The report, in part, follows i:“The test of cotton floor 'l.mopswas begun in the Summer ofi 1923at the request of several manufac¬turers.

Irwin Edman,assistant professor at Columbia Uni¬versity, believes that an ever increas¬ing number of them do, and Profes¬sor Edman holds college and collegeteachers responsible for unsettlingmuch of the best youth of the nation.Professor Edman, in the OctoberCentury Magazine takes RichardKane, an average hoy of an unintel¬lectual wholesome family, who “getseducation” as the exponent of a typethat in the light of Professor Edman’sexperience, is steadjly increasing,througli college where the environ¬ment and the training not only inspirein him a love for the “eternal things,’’hut create also a contempt for the“practical things” whereby he musteventually earn his living.At college something unaccountablehappened to Richard. And in thelight of all the comic and causticthings said wholesale about andagainst the contemporary undergrad¬uate, it may be well to go on recordwith the documented belief that thatunaccountable thing has happened tomany. His education began to take.College became for him, all thecomic weeklies to the contrary not¬withstanding, a place of intellectualwonder and refreshment arid delight.In his second summer home Rich¬ard worked in a law office for thesummer, and by the end of it he knewhe didn’t want to be a lawyer. Insur¬ance and bond salesmanship appealedto him even less. He had read “Bab¬bitt” and “Main Street.’’ He didn'twant to be the one or live on theother.

Although theyrepresent a new activity, they arefirmly established here, and are inthe hands of competent men. Forthe new man who finds a real inter¬est in athletics, without being ableto participate in inter-colegiate com¬petition, the management of intra¬mural sports offers an attractivecampus activity. This quarter thedepartment will conduct touchball,horseshoe pitching, soccer football,track, and golf tournaments. Thebenefits of sports placed on this per¬sonal basis are apparent.

Each quarter a general topicis chosen, and the main talk of eachweek deals with some phase of thisproblem. Last year the autumnquarter meetings were devoted toconsideration of various prejudiefies,winter quarter, to a study of greatreligions of the world, and springquarter, to citizenship.Among the speakers of 1923-24were Dean T.

He ascribes theweek’s success to the way in whichit cleared up registration and pre¬liminary instruction of freshmen be¬fore the first classes convene. Thedean, however, is far too modest.The real success of the week iies inthe original idea, and the way inwhich the idea was carried out. Andboth for the idea and the program,the dean is responsible. There arebut two other universities in thecountry, to our knowledge, whichhave made use of a similar idea. Inthese, the freshmen are summoneda day or two earlier than the return¬ing students in order to facilitatefraternity rushing. Without, doubt,the University’s plan will be consid¬ered by every college and universityin the country, and will be adoptedby many.
