Desires Law Enforcement By Students
Themselves Rather Than By
Proctorial System
"Suspicion with which the fraterni-
ties regard the new prohibition en-
forcement rules of the University, is
absolutely without foundation," said
President Clarence Cook Little in an
interview yesterday. "No plans are
being made to deprive the fraternitiesj
of their rights, and no basis for their
suspicions will develop.
"We are not trying to put anything
over on the organizations, but are
merely attempting to have the laws'
enforced, which is our common duty
as officers and students of a state
supported institution," he explained.
"We are giving the fraternities them-
selves the opportunity of actual en-
forcement," he added.
"A misunderstanding seems to exist
regarding the pledge ,whicl; the men
undertaking the supervision of the
liquor laws will have to take. It will
not be necessary that they sign a
pledge, but we wish them to appear
before Dean Bursley and state their
intentions of co-operating with us and
enforcing the prohibition laws to thet
best of their ability.-
"No supervisor will be required to
report the names of offenders, only
being in duty bound to report that
violations have taken place. If he
says that he believes that he has the
situation under control, tbhat is all
that is then expected of him. In case

"The University may have no legal

fraternities in their choice insist upon
this method of enforcement. They are
given two choices, and if they do not
