DEDICATED TO . .
The 1946 Mittidek staff dedicates this yearhootc to PROFESSOR
E. VV. PLOENGES, who this year more than hefore has accepted a
great responsihitity for our University and has proven himself more
than worthy of the task.
Professor Ptoenges is more than just another professor, more than
just a veterans officer, more than an assistant dean, he is truly the
friend of every student on our campus, particulary the veterans. His
counseling has the extra advice of a friend in it that the returning
Very few men would have attempted to do the tremendous taste
that he did at mid-year registration this year. tt toot: many. many
extra hours of work. hut although he enjovs hard wort: he did it not
just as a day,s wortc, he did it in order that we might henetit most
from our GI Billy he it for us.
We coutdn,t truly picture Professor Ptoenges hy printing a posed
portrait of him hecause he is a man ot action att the time. We who
have had the pleasure of tcnowing him through our tour years of
cottege can picture him in many characteristic ways.
Qur first meeting is usuatty 'in his office when he studies our
papers and hecomes acquainted with our cases as wett as with us as
individuals. Vve can,t help hut always remember that degree of speciat
interest that he shows in us as individuals not as just another student.
Anyone who has spent more than fifteen minutes with him tcnows
that current events, tocat. national, and international, are his pastimes.
tn spare moments one of his most favorite things to do is to sit hack
in a chair and digest the news from a current issue ot some authori-
tative weetcty news magazine. He always tries to read hoth sides ot
disputes and then enjoys evaluating them.
Those of us who have tween fortunate enough to have had a
mathematics course from him Witt always rememher him showing us
the Ptoenges method of using a Ustip-stictcfy We can never forget
the method he uses in explaining formulae on a diagram at the hoard
and that yard stictc he always has in the classroom to strike the points
ot interest in a prohtem into our memories hy means of gestures in
pointing them out with the stictc. We att titre his styte and what he
teaches stictcs. too. A
Between ctasses or between husy periods in the office he takes
a couple of minutes out for a smotce in the supply store, hut is never
content to stand there doing nothing. If he isn,t tattiing to a student,
he is looking over new material of academic nature. Httohn, how
goes it?U HTom, you matting it ah'ight?H "Bill, what,s new with you
today?n These and a wide variety of other friendly greetings are
heard when he meets students in the tounge or suppty store.
Vve at Ntittitcin are grateful for having you with us Professor
Ptoenges and we do appreciate att the things you do for us. We feet
that you give us something we can carry away with us that helps more
than we could say in att the pages of this hootc.

Panheilenic is an organization of fraternity women Whose aim is to
promote inter-fraternity cooperation and govern inter-fraternity activities
among the Greek sororities on this campus. The rush-chairman and the
president ot each of the tive sororities composes the council, with Mrs.
Ruth Maxwell, clean of women, acting as advisor. Officers in the organi-
zation are not elected hut are determined each year hy a system of rotation
among the presidents of each sorority. 'D
The main purpose of Panhelutenic is to formulate and enforce the
rules of rushing: both the format rush Week at the heginning of the fait
term and the summer schedules of personal rushing. A pamphlet is puh-
lished to give new students a candid- view of the rules anct regulations of
rushing and a schedule of social events for the season. These pamphlets
are given to the rushees in the tau. The council tried something new this
year. Instead of the Panhetlenic tea, a picnic was held at Camp Kiwanis
to open rush Week. Rush week was the week before school this year.
Panhellenic Sing on May 18, was one of the most colorful of Milli-
1cin's traditional programs. The sororities welcomed the return of the
fraternities to the sing this year. The Greek societies and S.A.I. partici-
pate each spring in the Sing.
