A SUBJECT recently touched on by the IFC has been for the past
few years one of I-M Director Earl Riskey's favorite proposals,
the separation of the social fraternities into two separate athletic
The Interfraternity Council has gone no further than to bring
the subject up, but Assistant Dean of Men in charge of Fraternities
William Cross says that the plan could be introduced for discussion
and possibly a vote if Riskey would write it up in concrete terms.
The basis for dividing the present league of 40 teams into two
leagues of 20 teams would be the size of the fraternity in terms of
numbers. The rationale for doing it lies in an attempt to more nearly
equalize competition and raise the chances for the smaller houses
to win some championships.
As it is set up now, the larger houses consistently carry off the
honors. The split (which would be determined by listing the houses
in order of current membership and then dividing the list in half)
would pit houses of relatively equal size against each other.
For a quick look at how the leagues could have been this year if
the plan had been in effect, we can list them below in two columns
in order of descending size. Finishes in the top ten over the past two
seasons are thrown in to show the overbalance of power. A factor to
keep in mind is that these rankings are based on this year's member-
ship, including the spring pledge class. If the existing league is even-
tually split up by this method, it would be in the plan to revise every
year to take care of the changing membership in houses.

such names as the
and the Gold League and no team in one league would play a team
in the other. Organization within each division would be nearly the
same as it is now. The major sports would find each league subdivided,
and eventually there would be first, second, third, fourth and perhaps
fifth place playoffs,
A running point system would be kept, and the eventual annual
ranking would take place in both leagues. If any comparison is wanted
between the two leagues, it could be realized in terms of this season
point total. Whichever league leader has the top total could be con-
sidered the Number one Social Fraternity in I-M athletics.
A Whole New Picture .. .
THE PLAN is a good one as it provides a whole new I-M picture for
the smaller houses. With it in effect, these fraternities could face
an I-M season with more than a small hope for a few championships.
Problems exist also. A major one would lie with the fraternities
quite far down in terms of size, but active enough in athletics to make
a strong bid for the top ten every year. They could feel resentment at
not having an opportunity to test their team strength agains the big-
ger houses. Anoher problem could come from the borderline teams
who would no doubt be shifted from one league to another as mem-
bership changed from year to year.
The few problems should not overshadow the tremendous advantage
the smaller fraternities will gain from this proposed change, however.
If and when the fraternity presidents decide to put this proposal to
a vote, they should keep this in mind.

The Boston Celtics and St. Louis
Hawks got the edge in the best-of-
seven playoffs in the Eastern and
Western divisions of the National
Basketball Association last night.
The Celtics, showing the same
drive and rebounding power that
they have had all season, whizzed
past Philadelphia, 107-98 to gain
a 1-0 advantage over the Warriors.
St. Louis trailed Detroit 90-84
at the end of the third period, but
came from behind to down the
Pistons, 114-111. The game was
marked by a brawl before the end
of the first half that began be-
tween the Piston's George Yard-
ley and the Hawk's Win Wilfong
and emptied both benches.
Cliff Hagan paced the Hawks
with a decisive 38 points and added
greatly to the winners' rebounding.
Dependable Gene Shue was high
for the Pistons with 29, while
Yardley added 20 in a losing effort.I
