Ihanover, N.. 1., D~ec. 12.-Complete
elimination of freshman rushing at
'DIartmouth college has been efcithled
iii a ruling by the ad1ministrative

board of the college,, which, beginning
with the close of the present aca-
demiiic year, will permit the pledging
only of students whose standing on
the campus is in the sophomore or
higher classes.

S'llowinig announcement of the boar d's
action, in which the approval of the
Shouses was unanimous. Faculty inem-

m iending the action of the admin istr a-
tive board, while their statements in
general anticipated favorable re;ults.
from the new ruling.
Notice of the revision of the college
h,~ushing rules was presented to the
iterfraternity council through a. let-
Ster from Tres. E. MV. H-opkins. Ex-I

The interpolations of fraternity in-
terests into the freshman year at'
Dartmouth is a maladjustment. Its,
processes are harmful to the class,j
demeaning to the fraternities, and
injurious to the morale of the college
. .. ...The original impact and the.
continued pressure of the system an-
nually creates discomfort for many
and misfortune from sonme among
those most sought by the fraternities.
