Sig Chis, Wrathy at Story
of Burglary, Threaten to
Hold Up "Cornhusker"
Indications Thursday ev.ening pointed to the expurgation of
another Cornhusker with a possible delay of weeks in issuing. The
objection is being raised by the Sigma Chi fraternity because of
alleged objectionable matter with which their name is connected.
The item in particular is an account of a supposed burglary com-
mitted upon a neighboring sorority house in which a number of
chairs and other pieces of furniture were deftly J'eMOVUd to other
Members of the frat have taken the matter up with the school
authorities" and attempted to get the objectionable page removed
before the issue. The issue has been delayed until the matter can
be looked into. Whether or not the objectionable matter was pre
sented to the censors of the book for their perusal could', not be
learned. The matter on its face does not appear bad, but the frat
has taken it as an affront.
At the time of publication it was impossible to reach either of
the men responsible for the book, so the public is in the dark as to
any plan of action they have made. It is probable that the affair
com'es as a total surprise and that they will be forced to do a tall
lot of thinking today and tomorrow with the public demanding their
books and the wrathy Sig Chi's hot on the trail of the censors.
