VOL. XLV No. 14

inancial Standards and Regulations
Applicable to Fraternities and


Membcrs of the Unversity Faculty
and St adent Body: The University
Commtee on Student Conduct has
received notice of the adoption by the
Regents of the following resolution
which is to superede a number of old
rules that have become obsolete:
Students should realize that their
enrollment in the University carries
with it obligations in regard to con-
duct, not only inside but also outside
the class room, and they are expect-
ed to conduct themselves so as to be
a credit both to themselves and to
the University. They are amenable to
the laws governing the community as
well as to the rules and orders of the
University and University officials,
and are expected to observe the
standards of conduct approved by the
Whenever a student, group of stu-
dents, society, fraternity or other stu-
dent organization fails to observe the
principles of conduct above outlined,
or conducts himself or itself in such
a manner as to make it apparent that
he or it is not a desirable member
of the University, he or it shall be
liable to disciplinary action.
Under the terms of the resolution
adopted by the University Council on
May 14, 1934 establishing the Com-
mittee on Student Conduct and ap-
proved by the Regents, this com-
mittee is "charged with the task of
formulating and interpreting princi-
ples of conduct which shall be en-
forced by the Committee in such a
manner as to protect the University
from unwarranted criticism and to
promote the welfare of the student
In the administration of the policy
established by this resolution and the
resolution of the Regents, it has seem-
ed desirable to set up certain stand-
ard and regulations not covered by
existing rules. With this in view and
having in mind the declaration set
forth by the National Interfraternity
Conference in its Fraternity Criteria
dated February 1934 calling on every
fraternity to take whatever steps may
be necessary to promote among its
own members "conduct consistent
with good morals and good taste," the
Committee on Student Conduct has
adopted the following statement of
the attitude of the University on
specific matters:
It is the opinion of the University
that the use of intoxicating liquors
in a fraternity house has a tendency
to impair the morale of the organiza-
tion and is contrary to the best in-
terests of both the fraternity itself
and of the University.
The University believes that the
generally accepted standards and
conventions of society disapprove of
the presence of women in fraternity
houses except when proper chaperons
are present, and it expects each frat-
ernity scrupulously to observe these
These standards of conduct apply
to men's dormitories and. approved
rooming houses for men as well as to
fraternity houses.
The Comnnittee voted further that
in order to improve the conditions un-
der which student dances are held:
(1) Permission for a dance spon-
sored by any student organization
shall be given only after the organiza-
tion has presented to the Dean of
Students the written acceptance of
at least two married couples to chap-
eron the party - theseA chaperons to ]
be either a member of the University]
Senate and his wife, the parents of
one of the active members of the-or-
ganization or persons selected from a
list submitted to the Dean of Stu-
dents by the organization at the be-
ginning of the year.
(2) Permission for a fraternity or
sorority dance shall be given only
(a) upon the written approv-
al of the Financial Advisers (See
Financial Regulations for Frat-
ernities) of the group;:
(b) after the conditions with
reference to chaperons, as set

forth in ,1), have been observed;
(3) Permission for a fraternity
house-party shall be given only after
arrangements have been made for the
members to move out of the house, if
the young women guests are to re-
main in it overnight.
At the request of a committee of
ihe NatioIa IFraternity Secretaries
As'ciat ion nrid of the cfficers of the
Interfrat r'nity Counci, the follow-
ing leislation was adopted in order
to help the fraternities and sororities
to strengthen and improve their
financial conditions:I

(1) a. Fraternities - On or before
Nov. 1, 1934, each fraternity shall
appoint an Alum i Financial Adviser
who shall reside in or near Ainn Ar-
bor. As soon as possible after his ap-
pointment, the Adviser shall confer
with the Dean of Students, for the
purpose of familiarizing himself with
the auditing plans, monthly reports
and other features connected with the
duties of the Financial Adviser, and
particularly with reference to the sit-
uation surrounding his own frater-
This Adviser shall be responsible
for seeing that the fraternity submits
to the Dean of Students (1) an oper-
ating budget for his fraternity at the
beginning of each semester based on
the number of students then in resi-
dence in the house; (2) a monthly
financial statement; (3) a monthly
balance sheet; and (4) an acceptable
audit of the chapter accounts at the
close of each school year, each of
these reports to be countersigned by
the Adviser.
b. Sororities - On or before Nov.
1, 1934, each sorority shall appoint an
Alumnae Financial Adviser who shall
reside in or near Ann Arbor. As soon
as possible after her appointment, the
Adviser shall confer with the Dean
of Women, for the purpose of fa-
miliarizing herself with the auditing
plans, monthly reports and other
features connected with the duties of
the Financial Adviser, and particular-
ly with reference to the situation sur-
rounding her own sorority.
This Adviser shall be responsible
for seeing that the sorority submits
to the Dean of Women (1) an operat-
ing budget for her sorority at the be-
ginning of each semester based on
the number of students then in resi-
dence in the house, and (2) an ac-
ceptable audit of the chapter ac-
countsat the close of each school
year, each of these reports to be
countersigned by the Adviser, month-
ly financial statements and monthly
balance sheets may be requested
by the Dean of Women whenever
she deems it advisable.
(2) Beginning with the fall of
1935, no fraternity or sorority shall be
allowed to open if, on July 1 of any
year, its unpaid accounts receivable
from the members active at any time
during the college year just ended
exceed a total of $200, or its unpaid
accounts payable for the immediately
preceding year exceed $500. Excep-
ions to this rule may be made only
by a committee of three consisting,
for fraternities, of a representative of
the University of Michigan Inter-
fraternity Alumni Conference ap-
pointed by the President of the Con-
ference, the faculty member of the
Executive Committee of the Inter-
fraternity Council and a member of
the University faculty or administra-
tion appointed by the Dean of Stu-
dents; for sororities of two members
of the Executiv.e Committee of Pan-
Hellenic, and a member of the Uni-
versity faculty or administration ap-
pointed by the Dean of Students,
It should be noted that the sub-
stance of 1 (a) was adopted by the
local Interfraternity Council in the
spring of 1933 and has been in effect
during the past year; and that 1 (b)
follows closely the practice in use at
the present time.
