J^ortfjtoest SECTION B FAYITTEVim, ARKANSAS, SUNDAY, MAY 19, 1974 Sororities Name New Pledges In a major revision of procedures, Greek leter soroities at the Greek letter sororities at the University of Arkansas this year held their "rush" of the year this spring, for women students who are completing their freshman year. This change was recommended by the Panhcllenic Council, student governing body lor sororities. Nancy A. Sindon, dean of women, said that 163 women students had pledged nine sororities this spring. For the past 20 years, "rush" has always been held in August of each year, right before the beginning of the fall semester and was open only to women who had completed their freshman year. There were several factors Involved in initiating a new 'rush," Dean Sindon said. "When women return to the campus next fall, the excitement will be behind them and Ihey will move right into the houses where they are to live. This relieves them of the pressure-packed experience of returning to the campus in August for Rush Week." It also eliminates what she called the "hectic, time-consuming and expensive summer rushing activities." Open Rush will continue throughout the remainder of the year for those students unable to go through this spring and to complete a roster in case "some girl does not return to the University next fall." Pledging sororities were: KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA- Jerre L- Biggs ,of Springdale; China Decorators Install Officers Springdale China Decorators met this week for the installation o f , officers conducted by Mrs. Emma Jean Walker.
