Carr Attacks Fraternities
For Repressing Intellect
By James A. Inglis
Fraternities are decidedly stifling
and repressive to the student who
is in "the University for intellectual
reasons, in the opinion of Prof.
Lowell J. Carr, of the sociology de-
In an interview yesterday Profes-
sor Carr expressed the desire that
the present deferred rushing storm
might be the cause for a complete
redefinition of the University's re-

letter organizations must be aided
and preserved in the present crisis
has been altogether too freely ac-

six hundred dollars annually. Will
the taxpayers be satisfied with an
institution which teaches students
the ritual of social behavior at the
expense of academic achievement;
would the taxpayers rather have a
student know which fork to use or

train leaders, Professor Carr asked.
Without expressing the opinion
that fraternities should be abol-
ished, he stated that freshmen
should be clearly warned against
the possible detrimental effects of a
