f J. A. Bursley, dean of students,
it a meeting which had been car-
ied over from the one scheduled
n Monday.
Dean Bursley and James A. Ken-
nedy, chairman of the alumni
groups represented, issued a joint
statement yesterday afternoon at
5:30 o'clock concerning a proposal
made by alumni of the five fraterh-
ties for the elimination of viola-
ions of University and fraternity
regulations relating to the presence
of liquor in fraternities. The state-
ment ended with a paragraph in
which it was brought out that "the
plan in no way affects the action
already taken relative to the clos-
ing of the five fraternity houses."
Statement Issued.
The statement follows in full:
"The Senate committee on stu_
dent affairs today considered the
proposal made by alumni of Sigma,
Alpha Epsilon, Phi Delta Thewa,
Theta Delta Chi, Delta Kappa, Epi-
Ion, and Kappa Sigma fraternities.
The plan suggested had the end in
view of eliminating violations of
fraternity and university regula-
tions relating to the presence of
liquor in fraternity houses.
"The Senate committee passed a
resolution welcoming the coopera-
tion of the alumni and expressed
the opinion that if generally adopt-
ed on the campus the proposal gave
promise of being effective.
"Following the action by the Sen-
ate committee, Dean Joseph A.
Bursley met with representatives of
the alumni and the work of devel-
oping the plan in greater detail was
Alumni to Aid.
"A joint statement issued by Dean
Bursley and James A. Kennedy, Jr.,
chairman of an executive commit-
tee of the five fraternities, was to
the effect that the contemplated
scheme anticipates that the alumni
thmselves will be the instrumen-
tality through which the plan is to
be executed, and that its applica-
tion will be considered by the Uni-
versity committee when a substan-
tial number of fraternities indicate
their willingness to cooperate with
its provisions.
"The development of this plan in
no way affects the action already
taken, relative to the closing of the
five fraternity houses."
