Cast Absentee Election Ballots
If you have reached voting agej>
(18 in Georgia and Kentucky, ] 9 in
Alaska, 20 in Hawaii, and 21 by
Election Day for residents of all
other states), you have a primary
responsibility to vote. And if you
haven’t already done so, now is the
time to check up on registration and

South Carolina. (Students who are
also members of the armed forces
may vote as absentees from all 50
states by requesting the proper form
from their officers.)
However, the regulations for
absentee voters and the require
ments for registration differ widely
from state to state and often from
county to county. For example, in
some states you will have to pay a
poll tax in order to qualify as a voter.
And in all states except Alaska, Ar
kansas, North Dakota, and Texas,
you must register before you can
vote. You probably have done so al
ready. But if not, and if you cannot
get home to do so, Acre are 20-
odd states which do permit registra
tion by mail. The deadlines vary
and some have already expired.
Write For Information
As an absentee registrant or voter,
the quickest way for you to find
out where to write in your state and
what information to include is to
consult a nationwide manual on vot
ing procedures. Both major parties
have prepared summaries of voting
laws in each state. You could consult
your local party headquarters or you
may write for a manual to either the

Rush Begins Monday
This program was the climax of
a week of rushing by both societies.
Betty Jo Kinlaw was in charge of
rush for the Phis, and Owen Cooper,
vice-president of the Astros, was
rush chairman for her society. Mon
day, October 3, being the first day of
rush, both societies introduced them
selves to the freshmen and transfers
on that day. At 5:30 p.m. the Astros
entertained at a picnic in the hut.
Chris Kress, head of the entertain
ment committee, and her assistants
presented a skit entitled “Un-
astroable Stakeout,” a satire on cer
tain television programs. Beki Grif
fin and Joy Harrington were in
charge of food for the picnic.
Immediately following the picnic,
the new students attended the “Phi
Big Top” in Society Hall. The
carnival-like program, directed by
Pat Shuman, Susie Bowers, and
Betsy Stem, was highlighted by the
appearance of the members of Pi
Kappa Phi and Sigma Alpha Epsilon
fraternities at State College.
Tuesday was Phi rush day,
opened by an early morning sere
nade and singing in the dining hall
at breakfast. The singing through
out the day was led by Phyllis Green
and Betty Jo Kinlaw, with accom
panists Pat Walston at the piano and
Janice Capps on the accordion.
Phi guardian angels rushed all
day long for their society. There was
held in the hut from 1:00 to 2:00
p.m. an ice cream hour for the new
day students. Peggy Perry Alston
