pus Chest fund drive.

ing a motion establishing a com-,
mittee to study progress in fra-
ternity and sorority membership
The Council voted to calendar
a maximum of four drives a year.
It removed from the same motion
a proposal "That the Council or-
ganize a Campus Chest Fund
Drive for those. groups desiring
. participation."
Wouldn't Stop Drive
However, the motion would not
have eliminated other drives, as
had been sought originally by
Campus Chest.
Administrative. Vice -President
Maynard Goldman, '59, moved to
delete the section of the motion
creating a Campus Chest drive.
This would leave two major drives
(Galens and the Fresh Ai; Camp)
and two) or three smaller ones

etheir own, he said.

more favorable than last spring.

SGC Treasurer Scott Chrysler,

save themselves by combining to
hold one drive, without the Cam-

On the restrictive membership
motion, Inter-Fraternity Council
President Rob Trost, '58, said
there was no need of a study com-
miittee, since IFC ahd Panhellenic
Associatioh could supply SGC with
whatever information it wanted
on the policies of houses and pro-
gress made in removing member-
ship restrictions.
Hi'e cited statistics that 30 of the
34 fraternities on campus which'
had restrictive clauses in 1944 had
removed them by this year. He
added that the presidents of the
two predominately Negro houses
on campus had told him they were'

Eckstein Cites Suspensions
However, Eckstein said that Phi
Gamma Delta and Theta Xi 'fra-
ternities and Sigma Kappa sorori-
ties did not have written restric-
tive clauses, but chapters of those
houses at other campuses had been
suspended by their nationals for
pledging Negroes.
Roni Gregg, '60, said the motion
did not contain any threat of cow
ercion, but the committee would
merely seek to get' a comprehen-'
sivecpicture of progress in the last
six years.
