.eorgia sororiy suspended on. claim of racism


ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - An all-white sorority
accused of rejecting a black woman because of
her race has been suspended by the University
of Georgia, where the grand antebellum Greek
houses that line Milledge Avenue remain bas-
tions of racial exclusivity nearly 40 years after
the school was integrated.
The Alpha Gamma Delta chapter cannot
conduct social or recruitment activities while
the organization and university investigate why
the unidentified black woman was rejected.
"Based on the allegation and the early inves-
tigation as reported to me, it appears this soror-
ity has acted wrongly in both motive and
result," University of Georgia President
Michael Adams said.
A sorority member told university officials
that the black student was denied admission
because of her race. The unidentified woman
said she expected retaliation from the campus
chapter after she filed the complaint and has
since withdrawn from school.

The black woman rejected by Alpha Gamma
Delta wanted to join several white friends as
they went through the "rush" process in which
potential members dress up and visit the Greek
houses, hoping to make a good impression so
the sorority will pick them as members.
While no written rule bars blacks from the
traditionally white social organizations, many
minorities feel so unwelcome they have main-
tained their own fraternities and sororities.
Evita Broughton, a black freshman from
Marietta, said she expected at least one sorority
to accept the student, but was not surprised by
her exclusion.
"That's just the way it works," Broughton
said. "There's a lot more harmony between
races on campus now, but there are still certain
things you just don't do."
The woman eventually dropped out of the
process after two or three days because she
didn't feel comfortable, school officials said.
University officials are investigating whether

members of Alpha Gamma Delta talked about
the woman's race and questioned how the
sorority would be perceived if it accepted a
black student.
Alpha Gamma Delta - which is housed in
an ornate white mansion surrounded by classi-
cal Greek columns - fended off questions
yesterday by handing out a simple news release
that said they were "aware there have been alle-
gations of racial discrimination ... Alpha
Gamma Delta does not condone racism in any
Julie Cretin, the sorority's national executive
director, said she does not know how many
black women are members of the 96-year-old
organization with 123,000 members worldwide.
"We are taking these allegations very seri-
ously," said Cretin, who is based in Indianapo-
lis. "Alpha Gamma Delta believes in treating
all our members and potential members with
equality. We are committed to finding out
exactly what happened."

"There's a lot more harmony between races on
campus now,, but there are still certain things

you just don't do."

- Evita Brought6
University of Georgia freshman

Members of other sororities were hesitant to
talk about the suspension. Many said their
national organizations had advised them not to
talk to the media.
Elizabeth Breiner, a senior and member of
Gamma Phi Beta, said it was "shocking and
horrible" for a sorority to reject someone
because of race. She said her house doesn't
have any blacks but never considers a potential
member's race.
"We really look at personality, you as a per-
son and what you bring to the house," she said.

"I personally think it would be great if sorori-
ties are more diverse."
About 30,000 students attend the state's
flagship university, but only 6 percent are black
in a state that is 25 percent black. About 19
percent of the students on campus belong to
Greek organizations.
There are seven traditionally black Greek
organizations at the university - four soror-
ties and three fraternities. In sharp contrast to
the mansions on Milledge Avenue, none of tic
black groups have houses.


World leaders to re-shape
UN peacekeeping efforts

ty Concil voted unanimously yesterday
to overhaul United Nations peacekeep-
ing operations - to create a more
potent, better financed force that could
respond more quickly to threats to
world peace.
Chastened by U.N. peacekeeping
failures around the globe, world lead-
ers from the 15 countries on the Secu-
rity Council - in New York for the
Millennium Summit - agreed in a
final resolution that a major change
was necessary.
It was just the second time in the
U.N.'s history that the actual leaders of
the Security Council member states
convened a meeting.
President Clinton said the United
States strongly supported reforms. But
he stressed the council must also
address broader security issues related
to disease, poverty, education and cli-
mate change.
"Until we confront the iron link
between deprivation, disease and war,
we will never be able to create the
peace that the founders of the United

Nations dreamed of," he said.
With the pomp and ceremony over,
the second day of the summit focused
on concrete problems - from Mideast
peace prospects, to the digital divide,
to the destruction that AIDS is wreak-
ing on the developing world.
Clinton was at the center of much of
the action. A day after he met with
Israeli and Palestinian leaders, it was
learned that Yasser Arafat had rejected
an American proposal on the future of
The American president was the
host for a reception yesterday night at
the Metropolitan Museum of Art for
the 150 leaders attending the three-day
summit. Not on the guest list: Fidel
Castro, though it was revealed that the
Cuban leader had exchanged a few
words and a handshake with Clinton
on Wednesday.
Outside of the United Nations,
protests continued - Cubans,
Haitians, Falun Gong supporters -
and traffic jams continued, as well. It
was heavy, but the city did not grind to
a halt - several police officers on traf-

fic detail described it as "Christmas
time" heavy.
Through yesterday, leaders took
turns presenting short speeches to the
General Assembly. There was much
talk about Africa, its poverty, war
and especially, its battle with AIDS.
"One more day of delayed action-is
a day too late for our people," pleaded
Botswana's President Festus Mouac,
whose country is among those hardest
hit by AIDS. "Our people are crying
out for help. Let us respond while
there is time."
Africa's wars - in Sierra Leone,
Congo, and between Eritrea and.
Ethiopia - are among the biggest
challenges facing the United Nations.
The world body is currently
engaged in 14 peacekeeping opera-
tions, with over 37,000 troops and
civilian police deployed from East
Timor to Cyprus and Sierra Leone at
an annual cost of about 52.2 billion.
Nearly 1,000 U.N. civilian staff are
engaged in 14 other political and
peace-building missions from
Afghanistan to Burundi 'and
