TROUBLE IN PROSPECT
OVER THE USE OF. THE GYM-
NASIUM FOR ANNUAL BALL.
Non-Palladium Fraternities Deter-
mined to Be Admitted-They Will
Go Before the Regents-The Other
Side of the Case.
The question of granting the Water-
man gymnasinm for the Annual Ball
may rouse the regents considerable
trouble again lis year. Lst year
there was a vigorous protest entered
by the non-Palladium fraternities1
against its being granted to the Palla-
dium fraternities if they declined to
give both outside fraternity men and
independents a share in the manage-
ment of the ball.
This year a still more determined
effort is being made to break dwn
the old lines. Sigma Alpha, Epsilon,
Delta Upsilon and Theta Delta Chii
are pushing the scatter. They have
addressed a communication to the
Palladium fraternities asking that
they be given a. share in the manage-
ment of the ball, otherwise they will
not accept the ofier to build booths
and will not attend at all.
If this request is denied, they de-
clare that they will carry their cause
to the regents and wilv present peti-
tions to them asking that they do not
grant the use of the gymnasium to
the Palladium fraternities alone. One
of those prominent in this movement
said to the Daily yesterday:
"We are determined to break up this
combination sooner or hater and think
we can do it now. We think the An-
nual Ball, which is still a class affair,
should be a class affair and a Univer-
sity affair in the fuiest sense of the
word. The regents should not grat
the use of the gymnasium to an ex-
clusive set of men and thus practically
freeze out from a great University af-
fair, the social'event of the season, all
who do not belong to this set. To be
sure, they offer s a chance to attend
and erect booths. This is because
they want our money. It is taxation
w'ithout representation, and, we should
not be self-respecting if we submitted
to such conditions"
The Palladium fraternities' side of
the case is that the Annual Ball is no
longer a class affair, though the com-
mittees are all made up from the jun-
ior class. The affair, they say, is now
called the "Annual Ball of the Palla-
dium Fraternities," and as they pay
the $100 rental for the gymnasium,
they do not see on what ground they
can be forced to open the affair to
others, if they do not wish to.
