was reinstated, then suspended
again in the fall after several
brothers got into a brawl inside
a predominantly Jewish house.
Students marched, but Fiji was
reinstated once more. Still,
chapter president Glenn Thom-
as warned members that "now
is not a good time to get in any
kind of trouble-racist or not."
T rouble seems to follow the
Delta Kappa Epsilons at
Tulane. Last April the
all-white fraternity held its
30th annual Debutramp pa-
rade down the center of cam-
pus. Many marchers wore
blackface and carried lighted
torches. Some wore T shirts la-
beled for Tulane's Afro-Ameri- Identity: Buying fraternity-s
can Congress, and, at a party
later, a few allegedly tore clothing off women spectators. Admin-
istrators were not amused. Eamon Kelly, Tulane's president,
asked DKE's national headquarters to lift the chapter's charter,
asked the City of New Orleans to close the DKE house for
health-code violations and used last fall's freshmen convocation
to pointedly warn the new students and their parents that
"Tulanians choosing to affiliate with DKE are joining an aber-
rant and outcast organization."
Before ending this parade of horribles, let's not overlook sim-
ple hooliganism. This year's prize goes to Texas Tech. It seems

that 25 years ago the Fijis at
Texas Tech stole the cere-
monial bell of the Phi Delta
Thetas. There matters stood
until the Homecoming Parade
last October, when the Phi
- Delts decided to finally take
their revenge. Before a large
crowd of witnesses, including
university president Lauro Ca-
vazos, a gang of Phi Delts
jumped the Fiji float.. Both
sides brandished clubs and
bats; in the battle the Fiji float
was torn apart. As punishment
both sides were banned from
most Greek activities includ-
ing spring rush. And the Fijis
were ordered to return the bell
to the dean's office, where the
)rity souvenirs at Wisconsin Phi Delts can choose its meth-
od of destruction.
Four years ago this magazine ended a report on fraternities with
the faint hope that "things are changing on Mount 'Olympus."
What we don't know now is the direction of change. We have
witnessed too many Greek tragedies recently and heard too many
muffled explanations that the Greeks are susceptible to the same
weaknesses as the rest of us. Funny, we always thought they
aspired to something more.
