Constitution Revision
Attempted By Petition
Members of N-CIub are cir
culating a petition on the Uni
versity campus this week in an
attempt to get 500 student sig
natures. Next week members of
Pharmacy College will circulate
petitions, also in an attempt to
get 500 signatures.
Purpose of the petitions is to
amend the Student Council
constitution. One of the two
amendment methods, under the
new constitution, consists of
obtaining 500 signatures on a
petition. When and if the neces
sary signatures are obtained,
the petitions are to be cub
mited to the Office of the Reg
istrar for validation.
Following this validation, the
petitions will be submitted to
the faculty committee on stu
dent organisations. If the peti
tion, representing N-Club and
Pharmacy College requisitions
for a representative from their
organizations on the Council,
are approved by this faculty
committee, they will be in line
for student approval.
The proposed amendments,
dealing with representation to
the Council, will go on ballot
for a student elect'. n. A ma
jority of 30 per cent of the stu
dents voting at the general
election with then be necessary
to attach these proposed
amendments to the Student

Students from the College of,

the Apollo room of the Raleigh
Tavern and established the first1
Greek society. j
Phi Beta Kappa, national
Greek honorary, recorded some
of its first meetings in this gen

Va., in 1776.
The first meetings were devoted
to writing exercises and debating.
One of the timely topics members
discussed was "whether anything
is more dangerous to civil liberty
in a free state than a standing
zrmy in time of peace."
The society soon began to
charter other members and the
organization became more national ' '
