American fraternities and sororities, often an object
of considerable curiosity on the part of those from other
lands, are significantly changing their way of life in a race
for survival. Basically, they are struggling to catch up with
THE GREEK LETTER Societies began to come under
fire for their extreme hazing practices, the relatively poor
scholastic record of their members, and their -acial and
Now they are also in difficulty because of the housing
competition which the universities themselves are offering
today, the Increasing academic pressures which cut into
the students' spare time, the highly developed social and
cultural programs under other auspices widespread on many
campuses, and the maturing student Interest in those ex
tracurricular activities which have more Inherent signifi
cance. WHILE FRATERNITIES and sororities are disappear
ing on some campuses, either because of lack of student
interest or due to administration policy, they still retain
considerable strength on many others. A recent article in
the Wall Street Journai carefully documents their situation.
For the most part they have been working to bring
about needed reforms. They are placing strong emphasis
on better grades and getting results. They are moving more
into the mainstream of university life. Formal barriers
against the admission of Jews and Negroes are falling, Haz
ing and other objectionable practices are giving way to
college or community improvement projects.
GREEK LETTER SOCIETIES point not only to re
forms accomplished but to certain positive values they
offer students, such as training in group leadership and
cooperation and the haven they furnish students otherwise
caught up in a vast, impersonal institution.
The survival and usefulness of these societies will de
pend upon their ability to adjust to advancing concepts of
social responsibility and individual maturity.

77s The Season
Now that the Great Pumpkin has come and gone and
the last of the old turkey bones have been thrown out to
Ace, all that remains are the marvels of a winter wonder
The first thing that comes to mind is the fact that this
s the season to be jolly. How jolly you are may often be
attributed to the per cent of alcohol in your bloodstream.
It might be noteworthy to add that several friends have
recommended hig type of treatment for frostbite, whether
received from the elements of nature or personally in
flicted. While practicing football on the administration lawn
recently I noticed that several fraternity mascots have
been practicing for the upcoming dog sled "aces, It seems
that they may be thinking of having Greek games of their
own; although some may be nt questionable nature.
Next a note of caution to those early rising freshmen
who will be bewildered by the sight of the Jolly Green
Giant's footsteps which seem to appear after the first good
snow. Some cynics attribute this phenomenon to a certain
group of brothers who are noted for their fly-by-night
Overheard at a pledge meeting:
Pledge A: Why is it that your bed covers are always
covered with dog hair?
Pledge B: What would you do if you had to sleep In an
open air dorm without an electric blanket?
Finally a word of encouragement to all of those who
have been subjected to the following sequence:
It's the big formal of the year, white dinner jacket and
all. Your blind date is hardly the affectionate type and you
are driving back from a primer in the middle of a blind
ing snow storm.
Suddenly you swerve the wheel to keep from being
burned by her Tipparillo and slide to a stop in the ditch
with your roommate's car. Then she expresses her concern
over getting late minutes.
The results of an evening like that can break a man
who Is low in spirits, unless he has a friend who Is 21.

Topical Confenf Brightens
Editor' note: Dr. James L. Roberts, re
viewer of Scrip, Is assistant professor of
English at the University and an author
ity on the modern novel and the theater
of the Absurd. ,'IU special interest Is Wil
liam Faulkner und he has published sev
eral articles on Faulkner,
The new Scrip magazine represents
a seemingly significant departure from
the past issue. Whereas in the past, the
magazine has concentrated on original
works which 'belong to the belle lettre
tradition, the present Issue seems to con
centrate more on topical issues which are
handled with imagination and insight, One
might observe that the prevailing tone of
the new Issue is critical and topical and
shows a distinct tendency toward more
THIS NEW APPROACH should add
considerably more readers to the list of
subscribers. Ihe lead article is a charm
ing spoof of the University's system of
providing "approved housing" for the stu
dents. The writer ,Tish Voichahoshe,
maintains a correct degree of objectivity
in describing troubles encountered in .off
campus approved housing. The topical na
ture is continued with a supposedly "Viet
namese Folktale" by Lloyd Cooper which
has overtones of both world conflicts and
Christmas myths. The tale is narrated
with a unique degree of suggestion allow
ing the Individual reader to make his own
application and interpretation.
Of a more general nature is the sa
tire on the typically inept American poli
tician written by Stephen Abbot, the edi
tor of Scrip. Abbot entitles his story
" 'Your Ledger is Black" or 'Out of the
Red': (A political satire for home folks)."
He uses some traditional American
cliches and rewords them to demonstrate
the time old adage that if a man is not
fit for anything els, e can become a
THE PROSE OFFERINGS are ex
tended by two well-written and original
works of criticism. Robert P. Bosking
shows a good grasp of William Goldlng's
writings and has pertinent views concern
ing this current and controversial novel
ist. I feel it is a definite attribute to the
magazine to publish a piece of criticism
which discusses a contemporary novelist
whose works are part of the current lit
erary scene. The second work of criti
cism is a psychological view of a Kafka
short story ("A Report to an Academy").
Ronald Paulson demonstrates a close
knowledge and imaginative understanding
of the story, which is concerned with
man's attempt to escape from his ani
The last prose work is Michael Reed's
three vignettes, each capturing the mood
and nature of three types of individuals.
These imaginative studies give us addi
tional understanding of the basic nature
of various types of individuals.
THE TOPICAL NATURE of the prose
offerings is carried over into some of the
ivptrv, Terry x. Tilford's "Poem for Ho
Chi Minh" offers suggestions about cur
ient issues and currency and is pre.
sented in smooth, natural flowing verse.
Of special note Is Gay I. Riddell's "Xmas
Tree" and Dennis Frltzinger's "Zen St.
Nick." With the Christmas season ap
proaching, these poems are highly ap
propos and are delightfully refreshing
views of the holiday.
Traditional popms are a-iso repie
sented in this volume. This reviewer's
favorite is the charming "Louis C. Tif
fany" by Gay I, Riddell. It captures a
certain gem quality of Mr. Tiffany's diamonds.
