Collegiate Sorosis sorority dis-
affiliated from Panhellenic As-
sociation last night and establish-
ed itself as an independent soror-
Panhel's president's council was
holding its election meeting when
Collegiate Sorosis President Ann
Fairchild asked for recognition:
Miss Fairchild read a statement
expressing dissatisfaction w it h
Panhellenic for not being "repre-
sentative of our attitue toward so-
rority life" and for not "serving
the purpose for which it was es-
tablished."' Twenty five Collegiate
Sorosis members then walked out.
After they left there was a brief'
silence. Panhel Executive Vice
President * Cindy Szady said Col-
legiate Sorosis's departure was un-
fortunate, but "reflective of a lot
of the undercurrent going through
"I certainly was surprised," iMss
Szady later commented. "My only
regret is that Collegiate Sorosis
had an awful lot to offer and now
Panhel can't take advantage of
"There's a tendency to stereo-
type sorority girls on this cam-
pus," Collegiate Sororis h o u s e
secretary Allison Cooke said, later
explaining its motives. "By putting
a lot of restrictions on the houses,
Panhel doesn't allow the diversity
in the system to show."
"Look at rush," Miss Fairchild
said. "In ten minutes you have
to meet someone and decide if you
want to live with them.''
Collegiate Sorosis does not be-;
long to a national sorority as the
other campus sororities do.
Many of the houses claim that
they are individual and different
from the stereotype sorority girl.
"The problem is that no one can
see the change," Miss Fairchild
Collegiate Sorosis's break with
Panhel had the unanimous sup-
portnof the house, the approval
of their local alumni board, and
the backing of Assistant to t h e
Director of University H o us in g
Robert Rorke, said Miss Fairchild.1

that a person who defies a sub-
poena must be charged by the
court before he can be held in
contempt, but if a person with
knowledge of the serving of the
subpoena files an affidavit, t h e
judge would be compelled to act.I
Nissen asserts that he filed such
an affidavit late yesterday.
Even without the subpoenaed
witnesses, the first day of the trial
was tumultous. At one point, af-
ter several warnings, Judge Eld-
en cleared the court of spectat-
ors, who numbered from thirty'
to forty people.
"It's just like Chicago!" Peter
Denton, grad., cried out as the

spectators left the courtroom.
"Another Julius Hoffman!" yell-
ed another departing spectator.
Police took Denton into cus-
tody as he left the courtroom but
he was later released without be-
As the courtroom cleared, Van
Der Hout requested a recess to re-
assemble his witnesses. The judge
gave him permission to reseat the
witnesses in the courtroom.
After Van Der Hlout declared
all the spectators potential wit-
nesses, the courtroom was once
again full, and the trial continued
for a few minutes until Van Der
Hout abruptly broke it off.
"I can't continue after the farce
that went on out there," he said,
ref erringtotheyDenton's being
taken into custody.
For the third time in the trial
the jury was sent from the room
while the judge spoke with Van
Der Hout. When it became ap-
parent that Denton had not been
charged, the trial continued.
But the defense witnesses were
again sent out of the courtroom;
in compliance with a request of
Jerome Farmer, the prosecuting
attorney, that they not be present
during other defense testimony.
During a lengthy cross-exami-
nation of President Robben Flem-
ing, the first witness for the prose-
cution, Van Der Hout repeatedly
attempted to bring out the back-
ground of the bookstore issue
which sparked the sit-in.
Farmer objected several times
on the grounds that Elden had
barred such background informa-
tion from the testimony.
"I don't know why the prose-
cutor's trying to
from the jury!"

The jury was sent out of the
room and Elden warned Van Der and
Hout to "stick to the rules."
When Van Der Hout protested ;invites all women
that testimony on the bookstore (graduate students included)

trials to date, Elden told him "I

the LSA Bldg. sit-in cases.
"He was clearly trying to clamp ThURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19

later. "What he was doing was7

At a sparsely attended meeting
last night, Radical Caucus mem-
bers admitted that the group
would probably soon disband.
"The group has been plagued by
a loss of membership since the
LSA sit-in last September," one
member said. He said the group
has decided to seek ties with other
political groups on campus.
Although the group discussed
many alternatives, most of the
five present at the meeting favored
uniting with the newly formed
Radical College. However, they
were uncertain as to whether they
would be allowed into the college.
The group also discussed the
political positions and tactics of
other student radical groups such
as Students for a Democratic So-
ciety (SDS) and International So-
cialists. They felt, however, that
these groups didn't represent their
group's political philosophy.
The members said they did not
agree ,with SDS's tactics concern-
ing political action. They felt that
Radical Caucus' position was
"more flexible" than SDS's.
SDS, they said, has restricted
itself to violent tactics in achiev,
ing their political goals, and In-
ternational Socialists has been
more concerned, they said, with
the problems of workers than with
the problems of students.
