Audrey Holliday Wins First
^ Mrs. Reynolds
Resigns Post
In Panhellenic
In protest against the methods
employed in this year’s campus
elections, Mrs. Marjorie Reynolds,
executive secretary of the Oregon
chapter of Panhellenic, resigned
her post early Tuesday afternoon.
“I believe no national sorority
would foster or tolerate the pro
' cedure of the Greek bloc campaign
in this election,” she said, “and I
feel that the tactics of the bloc
in the election are degrading to
sororities and beneath their stan
dards of conduct.”
Mrs. Reynolds felt that it was
unfortunate that sororities on the
Oregon campus have united in a
manner that would bring censure
upon them rather than bend their
efforts in projects worthy of
“I have enjoyed very much
working in the Panhellenic in the
last four years. However, I have a
limited amount of time and energy
to devote to activities outside my
home and position in the library
and I prefer to use it in some
cause commanding my complete
respect,” she stated.
Mrs. Reynolds wished to make it
clear that her action was taken not
because of her feeling towards any
of the candidates in the election,
but because of the tactics used.
Dean Schwering
Comments on 'Debunker'
Declaring that the “scurri
lous” pink sheet printed and dis

commentary on college women
and their future that they would
stoop to such action.”
She promised that a full in
vestigation was being carried on
and that as soon as enough evi
dence was found the matter
would be brought up before the
disciplinary committee.
