IFC Makes
Rule Change
Hoping to raise the slightly sag-
ging scholastic average which dip-
ped .05 last. year, the Inter-Fra-
ternity Council has made two
changes in its rules regarding
scholastic eligibility of pledges.
The changes were adopted last
Friday during a two-day "retreat"
of fraternity presidents, IFC lea-
ders and administration officials
at nearby Zuckey Lake.
THE FIRST rule change pro-
vides that any fraternity pledge
who fails to make a two point

pha, Epsilon voted its clause out.
two years ago.
Under previous rules, frater-
nities could keep pledges who
failed to achieve the two point
level necessary for initiation as
long as they wished.
The second change requires that
rushees, with the exception of first
semester freshmen, must have a
two .point over-all average before
they can pledge a fraternity.
IF. executive vice - president
John Baity, '55, estimated that
three to five per cent of last year's
pledges had less than a two point
over-all when they pledged.
Also announced at the retreat
was a reversal of the May 26 rul-
ing of the Student Affairs Com-
mittee forbidding IFC rushing
counsellors from participating in
rushing at their own houses.

Twenty-six girls are now being

The old Kappa Nu fraternity
house is being rented b'y the Uni-

not on a cooperative basis.
Further measures to increase
facilities for students were taken
when large doubles were con-
verted into triples and large
singles enlarged to doubles in
residence halls, providing accom-
odations for 467 students.
Final figures on dormitory
crowding due to increased enroll-
ment cannot be made until later
in the week, according to Shiel.
