At the same time, the Board also
unanimously endorsed a motion
stating that the Council's action
was taken within the bounds of its
Tl e motion for hearing was
made by Dean of Women Deborah
Bacon on request of sorority Fin-
ancial Advisors.
Consider Financial Advisors
In passing it the Board stressed
that it was calling for a hearing
to consider only the question of
opportunity for expression of views
given by SGC or the Panhel-As-
sembly rushing study group to the
Financial Advisors.
It agreed that at this hearing it
would not judge the case on the
substantive action taken or on the
merits of one type of rushing as
opposed to another.
The Board drafted the following
question which will be sent to
representatives of the study group
and the Financial Advisors: "In
what respects do you feel that
your position with respect. to fin-
ances was (or was not, in case of
Advisors) adequately considered b
the study committee or SGC?
Jurisdiction Questioned
During the first part of the five-
hour meeting, Dean Bacon pointed
out th t since the issue did not n-
volve only undergraduate students

for $2,000,00 in sorority property,"

Having settled the matter of
jurisdiction, the Board recessed
for lunch.
Consideration of Advisors Studied
The second part of the meeting
was concerned with an attempt to
resolve whether ample considera-
tion was given to the point of view
of the Alumnae Financial Advis-
Dean Bacon stated that "no-
where in the study committee's
report is there reference to the
information supplied it by the
"Some alumnae feel that' the
committee read it, looked at it
and passed it over. I don't think
that any alumnae were even asked

to speak before the committee and
express their views."
Dean Bacon stressed that "re-
gardless of their views' on spring
rushing" the alumnae had a right
to be heard.
Berliner .maintained his view
that the alumnae were given ample
opportunity to present any rele-
vant information on the issue and
that consideration was given to
the financial aspect.
The Board finally approved the
motion to consider the procedural
adequacy of the committee's and
Council's consideration of the fin-
ancial aspects of rushing.
It will hear the Advisors and
study committee sides at 7 p.m.
tomorrow in the Dean's Conference
Room of the Administration Bldg.
