Discriminatory restrictions in
social fraternities and sororities
at the University of Colorado must
be abolished by Sept. 1, 1962, or
be placed on probation including a
denial of rushing or initiating new
' members.
The policy was adopted in Boul
der by the school's Board of Re
gents Monday after a day long
hearing, despite contentions that
it could possibly lead to a with
drawal of all national organiza
tions from the Colorado campus.
Represenatatives of national fra
ternities previously met in Chicago
last week and voiced their concern
over the precedent involved. It
was felt the 1962 date was adopted
over an earlier proposal of 1960
because of the national situation,
especially the tenseness in the
There are 24 fraternities and 16
sororities on the Colorado campus,
all with national affiliations. Of
the 9000 students at the university
about 2000 are members of social
fraternities or sororities.
.University spokesmen said that
only seven of the fraternities and
none of the sororities actually have
restrictive clauses contained m
their constitutions.
The resolution was restricted so
it will not pertain to groups
"organized in good faith for devo
tional purposes or for the study
or propagation of a religious faith."
The hearing attracted an audi
ence of 1800 students and alumni.
A faculty senate committee on
student affairs had met earlier and
adopted a report proposing:
1. A Sept. 1, 1960 deadline for the
removal of discriminatory restric
tions in student organizations. (Re
ligious groups are excepted.) After
that date groups with clauses will
lose pledging and initiating rights.
2. A three-man committee, ap
pointed by the President and select
ed by the regents, should hold hear
ines and make surveys and studies
on the problem. Once a year it
will report its findings and recom
mendations to the President and
3. By April 30 of each year, start
ing in 1956, each student group
must certify whether or not it has
membership limitations based on
race, color, or creed. (Religious
groups are excluded.)
4. Organizations will be put on
probation if they certify that they
have these membership restric
tions. 5. Anv croup certifying falsely
will lose pledging rights for one
academic year and thereafter until
the proper certification is made.
6. The certification of each group
will be made public after July 1,
7. No new organization shall be
approved unless it can certify it
does not limit membership by the
bases of race, creed, or color.

This year, 25 per cent of the

A compromise solution to the
problem of authority for Ivy Day
was reached Monday night by Mor
tar Board and Innocents.
The decision rvas made following
a petition by the Mortar Boards
for complete authority over Ivy
Day. This petition, submitted to
the Faculty Committee on Student
Affairs, has been withdrawn.
The new plan, which must be sub
mitted to the Mortar Boards for
approval and to the faculty com
mittee, provides for a joint con
trol of Ivy Day by a policy mak
ing committee composed by both
Mortar Board and Innocent mem
bers. The committee would consist of
three Mortar Boards elected from
each year's society 'and three
Innocents from each year's group.
In addition, the chairman would
be selected alternately from Mor
tar Board and Innocents; Mortar
Board in even years, Innocents in
odd years.
If the plan is approved it would
go into effect immediately.
According to the compromise
plan tihe chairman would be made
responsible for: calling the group
in January of each year, discussing
Ivy Day policy, supervising all Ivy
Day activities and voting in case
of a tie between the members
of the committee.
Mortar Board in general will
be in charge of: masking, queen,
court including attendants, chains
and children, flowers, own publici
ty of members and selection of
Innocents will be in charge of:
tackling, general publicity, band
and grounds.
There will be joint committees
on: the sing, rehearsal and social
events, scripts nd trophies.-
Innocents and Mortar Board
will split the expenses half and
half if the University does not
finance the events.
The entire committee will decide
on the Ivy Day schedule and select
the master of ceremonies. The
policy making committee will hear
complaints and make recommen
dations each year as to the events
of Ivy Day. Mortar Board will
keep a complete file of the rec
ords, with the Innocents receiving
copies of the 1955 and 1956 reports
for their files.
The preliminary proposal was
drawn up by Andy Hove, Innocents
vice-president, Dr. H L. Weaver,
Innocents advisor, Sharon Man-'
gold, Mdrtar Board secretary, and
Mary Jean Mulvaney, Mortar
Board advisor.
