SEEKS TO DUPE fRATERNITIES Meeting to Discuss Athletic Board Election Dis covered in the Whittman Garage. Accounts by Spectators. The second floor of Whitman's au tomobile garage was the scene of a Pan-hellenlc meeting Tuesday evening in which Theta Nu Epsilon was de cidedly the controlling factor. The meeting was in response to a concert ed movement on the part of the T. N. B.'s, whose political power was in jured by the recent Senate ruling In regard to Athletic Board elections. These men got together Monday after noon and that evening presented to their several chapters the Idea of a panhelenic meeting for the purpose of passing resolutions stating the neutral position of the fraternities in the coming election. The so-called panhelenic conference, however, proved to be purely a T. N. E. affair. The out-of-the-way place of meeting aroused the suspicions of some of the fraternity men not in the deal, who decided to attend the meeting. There was considerable surprise evidenced on the faces of some of the T. N. E.'s when they found strangers in thq con ference, but on account of the fact that, as it was purported to be a Pan hellenlc meeting, they had the privilege of coming, they held their places. They were also reassured by the pres ence of a goodly number of Theta Nu Epsilons who likewise were not dele gates to the conference. Business started after a few prelimi naries resulting in the election of Dan McCutcheon temporary chairman and ""Chick" Clark, secretary. The repre sentatives from the several chapters reported that they were instructed to "stay with the rest of the fraternities" and to discountenance any clique which should attempt to put up a ticket In the coming election.' On mo tion of Mr. Coufal, put with such ex quisite verbosity that the secretary, Mr. Clark was obliged to delegate an amanuensis, in the person of Mr. Voder, one of the Interested specta tors, it was moved that it be the senti ment 6f the fraternities that all organi zation be discountenanced, but that if any fraternity men should run it should' be with the consent of the Pan hellenlc council; this to be binding upon all fraternities, . It was suggested by Mr. Johnson of Alpha Theta Chi, another of the un notified "f raters," that as a delegate he could not bind' his chapter by the acts of the council until he should re fer the resolutions back to his fra ternity. Mr. Coufal then moved that, If Alpha Theta Chi'B delegate be not so delegated, this fraternity should bo debarred from a voice in the mooting. This motion was wltEclrawn after con sldorablo- disousBlon, and the original motion for the appointment of a com- . . . . ... mlttee passed. This committee was appointed as follows: Mr, Clark, Mr. Beghtol, Mr. ZImmer, Mr. Coufal, and the chairman in accordance with the motion. Another motion to make the meeting secret was discussed and dis- couragod, as the chairman stated that there was nothing secret In the con ference. The meeting then adjourned until eight o'clock Friday evening, after making arrangements with the editor of the Nebraskan, who hap pened in with Arthur JorgenBen, Hugh Craig, Berquist and others, for the publication of the resolutions In next Saturday morning'B Ibsuo. Just before adjournment one of the delegates, In speaking of the place for the next meting, said that he thought they were imposing on the establish ment as they never swept up after meetings. The resolutions contemplated by the T. N. E.'s and their sympathizers are aimed at the fraternity men who signed the recent petition to the Sen ate asking for the abolition of the voting tax and who are now exerting their efforts in the Interests of tho University to get out a ticket com posed of both "Barbs" and "Prat" men. Tho signers of this petition disa vow any personal interest In the mat ter whatever. They are not coming back to school next year, and only de sire to see tho new rule given a chance without being discredited by the elec tion of an all-"Barb" ticket. There have been several meetings of these men with prominent "Barbs"' for the purpose of securing n University spirit in tho matter and, although no particu lar ticket has been agreed upon, sev eral fraternity men have been pre vailed upon to enter the race on tho fair plan of election. Thefo have been repeated attempts on the part of the T. N. E.'s to discourage these can didates, but only one man, however, has withdrawn from the contest. It is probable that in an open T. N. E. matter the fraternities would rebel, but they now have little opportunity, as the. plan was so cleverly made that the election will occur before the next regular meeting time. 0K0K)K0KK0 Dramatic Club inTHURSDAY NIGHT. 0OJKMJq Tho representatives from the vari ous chapters at Tuesday evening's meeting were as follows: Phi Delta Theta Dan McCutcheon.
