a campus fraternity was. denied
indefinitely the privilege of rush

according to a decision of the
discipline committee made at
their meeting Tuesday, W. A.
Dalilberg, chairman of the com
mittee, announced Wednesday.
The committee also adopted a
rule which forbids walkouts with
penalty for violation being pro
bation of both pledging and so

The committee is convinced
that this is not a year for stu
dents to act in ways which will
appear to the public that they
are not making the most out of
the privilege of being University
students, according to Mr. Dahl
