Delegates Adopt Resolutions Against
Organizations with Poor1
New York, Dec. 1--(By A.P.)-
Criticism of professional' fraternities
in American colleges was voiced to-
day by various speakers at the clos-
ing session o' the annual Inted-Fr-
ternity conference here today.
Dean Nicholson of the University
of Minnesota and William G. Revere
of Northwestern university held that
there was danger to the general coll-
ege fraternity through the growth of
the professional fraternitygon the
same campus. Dr. J. S. Ferguson.,of
the University of Maine took issue
with the opponents of the general fra-
Dean Nicholson said that where
professional fraternities maintain
chapter houses and take members
from first year students, there is a
possibility that the general fraternit-
les will become limited for their act-
ive membership to the freshman and
sophomore classes.
"Ultimately the professional frater-
nity will take on more and more the
fine attributes of the general frater-
nity, which constitutes a meace"
Mr. Revere said.
Dr. Ferguson minimized the fears
of the opponents.
Kappa Beta Condemned
The conference adopted resolutions
deploring the creation of student or-
ganizations, which ape the names of
the fraternities and make rival claims
upon students attentions, yet have
neither the purpose, organization, nor
discipline of the fraternity. The Kap-
pa Beta Phi. society was especially,
condemned, the report saying:
"This organization based on poor
scholarship makes an organized Joke
of an- ideal which the fraternities are
striving to promote and which stu-
denh dignify rather than ridicule."
A new national fraternity was born
at the closing session of the conferences
when representatives of eleven local
college fraternal organizations an-
nounced the formation of the Phi
Kappa Pi fraternity.
The name, adopted temporarily, is
that of a local fraternity of Stevens
Institute, "whose members assisted in
the organization. Other institutions
whose representatives voted for the
new fraternity were George Washing-
ton University, Pennsylvania State
college, Iowa State college, University
of New Hampshire, Bucknell universi-
ty, Temple university, University of
Chattoonoga, Worcester Poly Techni-
cal institute, Davidson college and the
Universit of Illinois. '
First Expansion Result.
It was. announced that this was the
first tangible result of the conferences
expansion committee's effort to. form
additional national fraternities. Per-
fected details of the new fraternity
are to be presented conferenc officials
within six months. In the meantime,
C. R. Drenk, L. O. Ohlander and S. F.
Lewis are to act as an executive com-
mittee in charge.
The conference will be held annually
in New York. Judge William R. Dyes
Phi Delta Theta of Ohio Weslyn uni-
versity, was elected chairman of the
conference. Other officers chosen
were: Dr. William G. Gies, of Gettys-
burg college, of Gettysburg, Pa., vice-
chairman; F. M. Dunbrul, University

of Cincinnati, secretary; and H. A.
Zillman, University of Wisconsin,
Delegates 'from 63 national college
fraternities representing more than
100,000 undergraduates, attended the
conference. In addition to the dele-
gates representatives from more than
50 fraternities with but one chapter
and of 32 inter-fraternity conferences
were present for information.

cities during the Christmas holidays.
With more than two months' work
at training and practice, the opera isj
now in "tiptop" shape for presentationI
before the large audiences before
which it is scheduled to play. Work
on the choruses began last spring and
the three groups of dancers in the
show will offer numbers of such nov-J
elty and with such excellence as are
intended to stand out easily above, not
only those of any other college opera
this year, but will also surpass those of
any former Union opera.
"Cotton Stockings" has been called
the "Opera Different" by many whoI
have commented upon it. It is a com-
edy in two acts with its settings laid
in New York. The first act takes place'
in the studio of Alaric Clark which
part is played by Charles Livingston,
'25. Alaric is an artist who has beenj
helped by Jerry, played by Vernon
Mers, '24, a close friend, but who has
just made good himself by the sale of
a picture for a magazine cover.
In Jerry's studio, a meeting place,
for artists and models, Susan, whose
part is carried by Lionel Ames, '24, is
constantly reminded of the happiness

.to guess.
The musk for the production was
composed by Charles Sword, '24, and.
William Kratz, '24E. Kratz is general
chairman of the six opera committees
who helped in production. John D.
Briscoe, '24E, is assistant to Kratz.
The chairmen of the committees are:
stage, John Bromley, '25; costumes,
John Plain, '25; makeup, Howard
Stimpson, '26M; programs, Leo Frank-
lin, '26L; orchetsra, Edwin Ritchie,
'24E, and publicity, Marion B. Stahl,
Thirteen instruments will play in
the orchestra of 17 musicians. The
orchestra is to be commended for the'
individual excellence of its members
and for their cooperation, says E. Mort-
imer Shuter, director of the opera.
I "It seems that this year all things
have worked together to produce an
opera which I believe will surpass any
college production I have ever seen."
This is the assertion of Mr. Shuter, its
Because of the fact that there are
so many numbers, it is called to the
special attention of the opera goers
that the performance will begin
promptly at 8 o'clock.

"A tireless influence has been at

United States embroiled in a Europ-

promises of material aid from Can-
ada in preventing liquor smuggling,
provided the U. S. give aid in stopp-
ing the smuggling of silk, tobacco,
and narcotics into Canada.
The United States will not take part
