An excellent means of keeping in trim is to exercise. One way in which we do it is to dance. Three big formals such as the Junior Prom, Commerce Alumni Dance, and "Y" Formal, besides quite a few "informals" keep us all in "tip-top" condition. Now to go and study, for life is not all just a social whirl. No1路ma Rebecca Nyce.


Dear Phoenix: I have so much to tell you-all about rushing season, with its general excitement and uncertain results. We had been waiting and planning for it from December 'til February. On Saturday evening, February 6th, we had our Panhellenic party in the living room of the dormitory where formal introductions were made. We danced, played bridge and ate our ice cream and cake, accompanied by an orchestra that wouldn't let us keep our feet still. Everything was .i n tune and we were all quite thrilled.

A broom dance to mix us up, bridge and more dancing (to somewhat uncertain radio music) completed the evemng. On Saturday, February 2oth, we gave our formal rushing dance at the Chateau Crillon. There were eighteen rushees, as many Nu Nu girls and a few alumn~-whom we welcomed with open arms-to add pep to the party. The favors were silver link-bracelets with a hamhered silver plaque bearing the initials ASA. These were attached to shoulder corsages of sweet peas and roses. Dancing, and playing "Electricity" on the heavy carpets along the corridor added to the fun we had. Silence period began Sunday morning, February 21st, and ends Wednesday at twelve o'clock. (Meantime we shiver in our shoes.) Freddie finally had her rummage sale on Saturday, January 29th. There was quite a store, and quite a crowd; consequently the addition to the convention budget was more than we expected. There is to be another sale after Easter and we are all expecting to dig out the old clothes while we are home from Easter vacation. We have been talking convention quite enthusiastically-asking
