Som time ago, The-Daily published
an editorial entitled "A Dead Body,'
the body in question being the Inter-
fraternity council. The editorial was
by way of being a complaint that this
organization, founded for the purpose
of fostering a good spirit among the
various campus fraternal organiza-
tions, had crawled into its shell and

was not dead, but sleeping, as the
tombstones say: for yesterday it woke
up long enough to pass a perfectly
ridiculous bit of legislation about fra-
