method pointed out that Skull and
Dagger was little more than a "re

To do away with the possibility
of the honorary becoming lop-sided
with members from a certain group
of houses, the amendment stated
that no more than three actives

The change in membership rules
of the honorary had been propos

Jack Beyers referred the proposal
to a three-man committee of Hod

drafted it into amendment form.
