than a defense of fraternities, it is an
argument that they should exist. In it
Mr. Minot says:
"Tho fraternity gives Its members a
home and congenial associates. When
he enters college it sets before him
noble ideals of manhood and high in
centives, which help draw out thei best
thero is in him; It spurs him on to ex
col in scholarship and other branches
of undergradiiato activity; it sets a
guard oyer .bis conduct, lest he brlnp
reproach upon the pin ho wears with so
much pride. In the management of its
affairs it gives him a practical business,
training; in Its hall he gets a drill in
debating and speaking which proves a
lasting benoflt; its chapter house be
comes almost a home for him, with all
its influences for good which this im
plies. Its intercollegiate features
broadens his view of the educational
world and renders doubly pleasant his
visit to sister colleges and his meetings
with college men all through his life;
it gives him as an undergraduate the.
benefit of tho acquaintance of many
alumni, a circumstance which becomes
a valuable asset when he enters upon
his life work, and it gives him precious
friendships, which will be cherished
among his dearest possessions while
"The fraternity has done much to
wipe out the old rivalry between tho
lower classes, which made hazing so
serious a matter in former times; It
selves the eating club problem, and by
Its chapter house saves the erection of
new dormitories; it gives tho college
desirable centers of social Intercourse
and activity, and provides a pleasant
means of entertaining prospective
students and other visitors; it gives
tho college it most loyal alumni, be
cause the man who does the most fo'
ills fraternity will do the most for his
college, both as a student and in later
years; it binds the alumnus closer to
his alma mater, and gives him a
warm welcome and generout hospitali
ty wfhen he returns at commencement
or nt other times."
Sir: I consider tho fraternities one
ol the most powerful ckmeuts of dis
iutegiation in our college life and vast
ly regrettable on that account. On the
college as a whole they have the effect
of weakening its power of effectual ac
t.vity by the scattering of its energies
Socially a college maintains its
standing and influence' mainly tluough
the different societies which are organ
ized and upheld by the students. Such
are the athletic, literary, musical and
dramatic organizations which meet for
a common purpose and work for the
glory and name of tho college. The
next Important factor in college life-

leaat one official for the game which
was to have been played Friday -by the
girls in Minneapolis-seems entirely un
warranted. Indeed their own' retrac
tion of tjjelr position upon learning
that we couldn't bo bluffed seems to
confirm this. Tho sting of two de
feats in two days at the hands of Ne
braska evidently has created an over
ouutlous spirit in gopher-dom. This is
the first break 'in the hitherto pleasant
relations between the two universities,
and it Is to be hoped that It will bo tho
last. Yet the ladles management did
exactly right in cancelling the date,
and calling the very apparent bluff.
The prize which the New York Tri
bune recently offered for tho best letter
defending college fraternities has been
awarded to John Clair Minot, '06, of
13 the class. A unified and enthusiastic
class can do more to raise the general
level than any other element in the
college. The students of the same class
have like interests, like duties and like
difficulties to overcome. Brought to
gether by all these things which they
have in common, they have occasion to
form tho true friendships which are
likely to become life friendships.
Now, what function does the frater
nity fill which the above mentioned
factors In college life do not? Not
only does it satisfy no need, but it saps
the life of other institutions which are
essentially collegiate. The social activ
ities of a student, from the very nature
of things, have some limit. If she be
longs to a fraternity, that comes first
and other things next. When class
and fraternity interests clash, the loy
alty which every good student should
have for tho class has to make way bo
fore her fraternity loath. Her class
becomes merely a means of securing
