Rush Can Be Fun
Ol (illKlDf.i;
Kernel Women's Kditor
Welcome to that sometimes
hectic, sometimes nerve-raclunand nhvnys tirinji experience
know as sorority rush. By now
you've been thoroughly schooled
in the vocabulary, rules, mid
problems that the typical rusher
puffers through.
After yesterday, that first mnd
dash to the houses, you now
understand why Its called rush.
Of course, this year its more
hectic than usual with four parties a day for three clays. Hut
whether or not you pledge, the
whole experience is really tun if
you know how to enjoy it.. The
following are a few tips to h dp
1'ju a happy rusher and keep
those already weary sorority
girls from being more tired.
When attending those ''Coke"
parties wear comfortable shoos
and for heavens rake doti't try
to break in your new girdle, thi..
is not the time or the place.
Nothing is more uncomfortable or
irritating than a tight shoe or
tight clothing, especially in this
hot, sticky, weather that Mr.
Weatherman has decreed we shall
suffer for the next week.
Before you leave for those parties tuck a roll of mints in your
purse and pop one in your mouth
after each party. It will pep you
up and if you smoke will kill that
smokers breath. It's also more
pleasant for the sorority girls
who are rushing you. You can
also tuck a small cotton square
in your purse which has been
soaked in astringent for those
quick touch ups between parties.
Now that we have you fresh

enter the door, take a
deep breath and remember that
while you may be wondering if
they want you they are also wondering if you'll want them. Relax
and enjoy those parties its the
best
chance you'll have for
making friends in large quanity
while attending UK. It will :ur-piiyou how fast you learn
people's names and recognize
them on campus. But a word of
can. ion, th-- re aie certain things
one must l:eer do during rush
mil"ss invited to by the sorority
.
member.-,-

Never sit 0:1 the floor, that's the
sorority girl.-.- ' domain. Don't pet
up and woricr aim.. id the room,
most groups have a plan for
and you will
meeting
throw the whole system out of
kilter. Don't drown yourself in
cologne duiing the next week.
A little scent is nice but you
must consider how a room full
of girls, each wearing something
different will smell like something akin to a skunk. So go easy.
All of these hints hold true all
during rush. Don't over-dresleave those gobs of jewelry
at the dorm. Simplicity is the
key for you. But if you have
a charm
wear
bracelet
it.
Its always a good conversation
piece and it helps you and the
sorority get to know each other.
Remember you want to Join a
group that has that certain

campus calendar

Relax

something which makes you feel
you fit rir;ht in. This may be a
little hard to determine in such
a short time but remember, like
the old warning when you take
multiple choice exams, the first
choice is usually the right one.
Now there are many cases where
this doesn' hold true but this is
why you go to so many parties.
As soon as the bids are out
you will be pledged. This seems
like a very mystic process but its
not. There's nothing to be scared
of. They don't ask you to sign
anything In blood and the antics
you saw practiced by high school
sororities just don't exist in the
sorority system.
This year a real treat is in
store for the new pledges. In the
has
past, pledge presentation
been centered around each house
haung a jam session and open
house for their pledges. This
year, because the parties have
grown so large most houses can't
hold all their guests, the sororoi-tie- s
are going together and give
one big session in the Student
Center on the Saturday after-hol- d
all their guests, the sorori-noo- n
following pledging. This is
the time upperclassmen come to
look over the new crop for the
year and niuke their selections.
It's fun and this year's is really
going to be bigger and better
than ever. So have fun and
relax. Remember rush can be
and will be fun if you act

Society

Each year the society page,
for ever after to be known as the
Kernel Woman's Paste, tries to
gather news from the four corners of the campus which will be
of interest to the women of UK.
This year in keening with our
new policy, this pa.e will include news of the faculty, their
wives, and children, interesting
people, campus organizations, and
many other new features designed
to include all areas of the campus
social scene.
We are asking each org:ni:'ed
group, honorary or professional,
to s.'i.d us an out line of their
purposes and requirements for
membership, so our student body
will know nhout the activities
available on the campus. We are
a'so asking these e roups to turn
in all '.neeting notices on the
Fiiday before they are to appear
and they must he si: ; ! and
contain a phone number in ca-further information is needed.
Our policy for engagements,
piti'iiivs, and weddings will
basically the same. Thev
should be typed or printed, give
the girl's name, classification,
major, home town, and affiliation, the same information is required for the man. These should
be marked pinning, etc. As in the
past, they must be signed and
contain a phone number so we
may varifly them. They will not
run unless signed.
Since it is impossible for your
editor to know of all the University wives activities we are asking
the presidents of all such organizations to get in touch with
this office and tell us of meetings and other a''tivitie- - This
also includes the student wives
organisations.
Fraternities and sororit'es must
have notices of social activities
in to the woman's editor no later
than noon on Wednesday in order
for their event to appear in the
weekend social lineup. So take
heed greeks thre will be no exception to this rule.
Please leave all your news in
the Kernel news room or mail
to the Woman's Page editor in
the Journalism building. With
your cooperation on these points
vve should be able to give you
more and better social coverage

I)R. JOHN OSWALD
new president of the University

Welcome To UK
Since the announcement of my
election to tlie presidency of the University ot Kentucky last May 31 we
have been overwhelmed by messages
of welcome and best w ishes from all
over the country. Anions those messages that pleased me most were tin'
many rem present and former students of die University. Espec :al! did
I appneiate the warm welcome extended to me from the students hv
the summer edition of the Kernel.
Now it is ni pleasure t extend a
most heart) wt home to all University ot Kentucky students, new and
continuing, for all of vou are "new"
to me.
In cousidei ing my move to Lexington one of the things I have anticipated most is the opportunitv to

work more closely with students. In
my last few years in the statewide
administration of the University of
California system my associations with
students were unfortunately limited
to occasional meetings with student
leaders from the several campuses.
Thus I welcome the opportunity lu re
to meet and work with the dillirent
student groups. I also wish to arrange
schedule so th 't there will be an
ni
oppoitimity to talk with individual
students. In this connection I plan soon
to establish a regular time when I
will be available at the Student Center to meet students not only to discuss problems but to receive their
ideas on matters of concern to the
entire University. It is nice to be here.

versity.
Now some very important decisions as will as some big challenges
await our new president. An
need for better colleges
and universities is being felt in Kentucky. President Oswald "must lace
and attempt to solve problems concerning the community colleges, the
University's role in Kentucky's system of colleges and universities, and
the difficulty of getting needed funds.
As there are many challenges,
there are many opportunities for accomplishment. In almost every field
known to man. the University offers
opportunities for both students and
faculty to work, study, and learn in
an academic environment.
With the beginning of the fall

semester, the University looks forward to its first full year in the
sics building and the enlarged Margaret I. King Library. Students look forward to the enlarged,
remodeled, and renamed Student
Center.
The entire University looks forward to working and learning under
Dr. Oswald whose reputation as an
educator and administrator proceeded
him to the campus.
This new year has all the ingredients: hope, opportunity, and challenge. It will become what the members of the University community
choose to make it.

Opinions Welcomed
During the course of the year
our readers may find they have an
opinion to express on a campus problem, a view expressed by someone, or
some topic of general interest.
Both complimentary remarks and
criticisms may be expressed in letters
to the editors.
As in the case with all commercial
newspapers, the Kernel reserves the
right to edit all communications to
meet standards of decency, judgment,
and responsibility. Since this newspaper must comply with L S. postal

regulations
governing second-clas- s
mailing privilege, strict adherence
w ill be
given to federal laws. Letters
considered libelous by the student
editorial board of the Kernel w ill not
be published.

Ilotc did the struggle start?
A governmental order banning the
flying of religious flags was a factor.
Buddhists demonstrated at the city

demand "religious freedom ami social
justice" typified by such things as:

Diem's regime promised a settlement
of the other demands. The government described its attitude as one of
extreme conciliation. But reforms
were slow in coming and Buddhist
leaders marshaled their forces for a
showdown. Police broke up Buddhist

hundreds.

offers of conciliation?
"They are only trying to trick us."
That was a spokesman's response to
