Scholastic Requirement
Would Affect IFC .Plus
Lockwood Says That 2.4 Grade Ruling
Would Include All Rooming Organizations
An effort to enforce a rule requiring fraternities to maintain an
overall 2.4 scholastic average may prove embarrassing to University
If the rule were enforced for fraternities every other dormitory,
sorority, co-op house and rooming house should also be required to
maintain a 2-4 average, the full regulations state.
* * * *
THIS WAS apparently overlooked by University officials when
they told Interfraternity Council members of plans to enforce the
long-dormant rule at the beginning of the semester.
Research on the background of the disputed rule revealed
that the portion relating to "other recognized rooming associa-
tions" had been overlooked, according to IFC President Bruce
Lockwood called the omitted portion of the regulation to the at-
tention of Dean Erich Walter last week. Walter said he had been un-
aware of this section of the regulation.
* * * *
THE CONTROVERSIAL regulations were contained in a report
submitted to the Committee on Student Affairs and adopted in May
1945. The report was drawn up by the Interfraternity Alumni Con-
The section dealing with scholastic averages says a fraternity
whose group average falls below a 2.4 for one year shall be warned.
The second year below this average places the group on maximum
social probation.
If after two years on social probation the fraternity still has not
raised its average about a 2.4 it shall be forbidden to initiate new
* ~
IMMEDIATELY following this statement concerning fraternities
is a paragraph which says ". . . the above recommendations should be
implemented on the same scholastic basis by sororities, co-operatives
and other recognized rooming associations."
No effort was made to enforce these regulations until early
this semester. When plans for enforcement were announced be-
fore the IFC, a howl of protest went up.
About one-third of the 31 fraternities on campus last year had
scholastic averages above a 2.00 but below the 2.4 which would be re-
quired under the resurrected rule.
* * * *
A FACULTY MEMBER of the group which drew up the disputed
regulation has privately admitted that "it should be buried" according
to Lockwood.
Representatives of all the fraternities, along with alumni, will
meet with University authorities next Tuesday to discuss the regu-
