Fraterni ties on both campues competed In the same division as against the plan of two years ago, when an ag campus fraternity award was made and also a city cam pus award was presented. The Farm House members ad vanced from a third place posi tion of last year to first place this year. Winners of the pres entation last year were Phi Kap pa Psi, first place; Alpha Tau : Omega, second place; and Farm House, third place. The winners were judged on a point system. Points were gar nered by a house on a basis of individual activities of members, such as activity points for mem bers in organizations and officers of those organizations, and group activities such as the house dec oration contest each fall during Homecoming, Kosmet Klub show contest each fall at the Kosmet Klub, fall review, and the ivy Day sings each year in May. Scholarship The scholarship reauirement for the trophy is figured on the winning house's relation to the top ten houses in the University fraternity average. Men on the honor roll from each house re ceive extra points for their group. Last year's average for mem bers of Farm House was 6.7. The unofficial average for the house for 19 19-50 is about the same.
