The Faculty Committee on Stu
dent Affairs voted Friday to allow
the Interfraternity Council to rein
state its annual IFC Ball, tentative
ly scheduled for Saturday night,
May 18, at the Turnpike Ballroom.
Action came after almost two
hours of discussion Friday involv
ing members of the committee and
executives of the IFC.
In a prepared statement, the
Siident Affairs Committee stated
that they had "voted to allow the
Interfraternity Council to hold an
IFC Banquet, and also to hold an
IFC Ball on a weekend at the Turn
pike Ball Room.
The Committee statement con
tinued that the following stipula
tions concerning the IFC Ball were
to be fulfilled:
1. IFC must obtain a signed
statement from the management
of the Turnpike that the manage
ment will cooperate with the
University with respect to Univer
sity regulations governing social
affairs. ,
2. That the IFC will provide po
lice for the dance.
3. That the officers of the in
dividual fraternities will sign a
statement of agreement to help
police the dance.
IFC executives Dick Reische,
president; Charlie Fike, vice- presi
dent; and Bill Dahl, treasurer,
presented the council views to the
Committee, which met in open
session at Ellen Smith Hall.
Council president Dick Reische
stated that he felt all fraternity
presidents would support the de
cision of the Committee on Stu
dent Affairs wholeheartedly.
"Action will be taken if fratern
ity members start to drink at the
dance," Reische added.
Dr. Bertrand Schultz, faculty ad
visor to the IFC and a member of
the Student Affairs Committee,
stated that the Council wished to
show their good faith by staging
a successful dance in compliance
with University rules.
During Friday's discussion which
preceeded the , committee's deci
sion, Reische stated that the IFC
would be willing to sign a pledge
of good faith with the student
affairs office.
Dean of Student Affairs, J. P.
Colbert, stated that he "felt the
committee has shown by its actions
that it stands ready to work with
the students at all times helping
them develop a satisfactory social
and activity program within the
framework of the laws of the state
and rules of the University."
Reiche and Dahl met with the
Committee on Student Affairs
March 4, at which time discussion
was also held concerning the pos
sibilities of reinstating the dance.
The IFC petition to the Commit
tee called for the dance to be part
of "fraternity weekend, involving
an IFC Banquet Thursday night
at the University Club, and an
open-house dance Friday night,
sponsored by the Junior IFC."
The privilege of having an IFC
Ball was taken away from the
Council in 1955 by the Office of
Student Affairs.
Last fall the IFC unsuccessfully
pettiioned the Office of Student
Affairs asking permission to havt
the annual dance reinstated. "
