"As a chapter of Pi Beta Phi national there is no way we
can possibly rush," said Jan Phlegar, Pi Beta Phi counselor
and chairman of the Panhellenic Membership Committee.
She said the National Grand Council sent the chapter a
letter refusing to grant a waiver permitting compliance with
the Panhel resolution which prohibits the use of alumnae
"The grand council said they did not have the power to f
grant the waiver," Miss Phlegar added.
The section of the Pi Beta Phi constitution dealing with " K
alumnae recommendations is a statute. Although most stat-

Black hi-story: eA

Slight, soft spoken, casually dressed.
William Toll seems out of character
teaching a highly controversial subject
like black history.
"The, Negro Experience," the history
department's response to pressure from
black students, is taught by Toll in two
seminars, one for graduate and one for
junior honor students.
The classes take American history and
view it from an unusual perspective--un-
usual for current American history.

been doing graduate work at the Uni-
versity of California at Berkeley, in time
for the fall semester.
The grad class with 18 members, two
of whom are black, is twice the size of
the all-white undergraduate seminar.
While the undergraduate class tries to
answer questions definatively, says Toll,
the graduate stu'dents dig deep into the
material, opening up many areas of
'"It's more difficult to plunge under-
graduates into this since you don't know
what their background is," explains Toll.

Another factor to which Toll attributes
the lack of interest is the poor general
quality of the course description booklets
provided by the University. He says the
history department is working on a course
evaluation project which should improve
this situation.
Toll believes the course should be open
to more students, although he stresses
the students should be "qualified" since
the course requires a substantial amount
of reading and discussion.
He prefers a seminar format for the
course but sees this as impossible for a
