Would Require House Presidents
to Report Violations of
Rules to Dean.
The Univers ty authorities will
attempt to regulate fraternities
and drinking by means of an "honors
system," it was learned today.
Dean Joseph A. Bursley said that
"one or two have taken means of
regulation,", bu.t insisted that it
was not a general policy beingI
adopted. Several fraternities have
been approached relative to the1
adoption of a plan, although it is
understood that as yet they have
not responded.
Members of the fraternities ob-
jected since it would require that
the house presidents report all in-
fractions of the pledge to the dean
of students, although disciplinary
action would be taken by the fra-
ternity organizations, it was learn-
ed. Objection was raised to the plan,
because it would require the frater-
nities signing the pledge to give
information concerning the actions
of out-siders who might visit the.
houses, as well as their own mem-
James R. Hoeffer, '32, the former
House president. of Sigma Chi fra-
ternity, one of the houses which has
signed a pledge, said last night that
he favored the action, although he
did not believe it would meet with
favor by most of the 'fraternities.
It is understood that the fraterni-
ties signing pledges did it on their
own initiative.
