But my two best girlfriends didn't make it. (They tried.) Now they're telling me sororities are for snob-sisers, and want me to live in a dorm, hen take an apartment with hem next year. Whichever way I choose, I'll hurt somebody. Mom's counting on the sorority and says it's he greatest. My friends don't want me to break up their threesome. -- WHICH? WHICH: Forget "hurting some'body" for a while and ask yourself, "What do I want?" It you think you'd be happier in a sorority house than in a dorm, try it -- you can still keep outside friendships (though you'll find it isn't easy). But if the sorority route is strictly your mother's idea anc tradition doesn't turn you on then tell her. She may not be as upset as you expect. -- SUE DEAR WHICH: If you're truly undecided, why not try the sorority bouse first, .then, if it isn't for you make plans for apartmenHiv say marriage is mutual ac justment and the idea that me can't change but women mus is another one of those myth dreamed up to keep us submib sive arid dominated.

In other words, she must change, but never expect HIM to bend her way.
