TIE OTHER SIDE.
In these days of anti-fraternity leg-
islation, when we hear and read more
rant and prejudiced attacks than we
do sane and intelligent discussions, it
is pleasing to find something which
savors more of what is fair and
square. From the editorial page of
Wednesday's Bluffalo Express we take
the following, which appeared utnder
the caption "Greek Letter Societies:"
"The problem of Greek letter soci-
eties, bouse and other clubs has been
taken up by the faculty of the Univer-
sity of Michigan iih a manner which
promises general improvement in a
number of directions. A careful in-
vestigation, in which the faculty com-
mittee was assisted by the leading so-
cieties has shown the need, it is said,
for various reforms, but especially
improvempnts in scholarship. Too
many sqcial and other outside under-
takings it appears, have interfered
with university work.
"The results of the investigation at
the University of Michigan are simi-
lar to those reached through' investi-
gations elsewhere. The society sys-
tem is essentially as useful an institu-.
tion now as it ever was. What evils
have developed in recent years can
be corrected without abolishing the
system if the alumni and undergradu-
ate members will cooperate in the
work of improvement.
One of the propositions tentatively
made in respect to the Michigan inves-
tigation is that a certain number of
university credits. obtained through ac-
tual university residence be required
before a student is eligible to mem-
bership. This recommendation prob-
ably will be more vigorously opposed
than any other, as it will be looked up-
on as tending to destroy family and
other lines in society membership, but
it is based on the merit idea and is
commendable because of that. There
is too much tendency to invite men to
join societies because of varou- rec-
ommendations outside of merit and
"It might be a good plan for the sor
cieties themselves to delay the matter
of elections to membership until the
end of the freshmen year. There prob-
ably will be few members of Greek let-
ter societies who will not agree that
such members as have been elected in
their sophomore or higher years have
proved to be, practically without ex-
ception, unusually strong members.
These students have had a year or
more experience of college or univer-
sity life. The first year of this life is
upsetting to a good many youths, and
that is the kind which would better be
kept out of Greek letter and other so-
cieties. They are the only ones who
bring trouble to these organizations.
