sity has never accepted the respon-
sibility for any fraternity's finan-
cial obligations and I am equally
sure that it never will accept any
Although critical of the univer-
sity's present policies toward fra-
ternities, Miller cited several forms
of supervision which he considered
properly within the province of the
Dean's office such as the right to
make inspections o f fraternity
houses to insure proper sanitary
and general living conditions. In
the way of scholarship regulations
Professor Miller indicated that in
his opinion the relation should be
between the university and the in-.
dividual rather than between the
university and the Greek letter or-
ganizations. He said, "The univer-
sity has a perfect right to decide
which students may remain in the
university and which may not."
In regard to what the fraternities
adopt for the future, Professor Mil-
ler expressed the hope that the ob-
jectives sought would be clear cut
and would spring chiefly from the
initiative of the fraternity men

discussed widely and their value
accepted. We should be sure like-1
wise that our regulations are not
put into force at a time when they
can so easily cause trouble or at
such a rate as to cause distress."
A plea for a radical simplification
of the whole mass of administra-
tive detail was summed up by Pro-
fessor Miller, who said, "I cannot
see why a student who has the pri-
vilege of remaining in the univer-
sity may not have the privilege of
selecting his own friends and his
own living place."
