Sigma, Mu Members
Athletic Associations Have Pep
Rally in Gym, Auditorium
Sigmas and Mvfs held their an
nual induction October 8. At ap
proximately seven o’clock each team
started its round of the dorms.
Marching along and chanting their
team songs they picked girls from
each hall. Each team captain car
ried a list of the new girls on her
particular team. When the cap
tains reached each hall they read off
the names of the new girls on that
hall who were to be members of
their team. Everyone had been ready
and waiting for a long time. When
each girl found out to which she
belonged, she quickly joined the al
ready growing procession. After all
the members had been chosen, each
team gathered together. All the
Sigma’s met in the gym aiid the Mu’s
in the auditorium. Sigma’s and Mu’s
gave cheers and team yells for a
while and then all retired to their
rooms. Another Sigma-Mu induc
tion was over.

Ij^tntnunists break the mind of an
"''thodox Communist until he con-
to the “crimes” which they
6 invented for him.
ji. o.r'kness at Noon, according to a
review, has managed to appeal

to inflame the emotions; to
\vn,"’hether absolutist ideas can exist
Ijf 'ont absolutist methods, whether
''’hich systematically ignores the
factor can preserve a human
''i • . . it is a vivid momento of
rjf® Moscow trials, a sharp probing
