tin's afternoon. The program i- offered as a result of investma
vvirjui.wu Ity n. J7-Iiirt.il rom*
mittee which traveled to Stanford
last week.
Such a plan would make the
freshmen living units a distinct
and separate part of the dormitory
system. This distinction would,
even extend to intramural activi
ties. Non-freshmen dorms would
form their own league. Fraterni
ties would have a separate league. I
At the end of each season a play- !
off among the three league win- j
ners would determine the cham-i
Freshman Fleet Officers
The freshmen halls would elect'
officers at the beginning of the I
school year, and though these i
freshmen officers would have little
authority during the fall term, they 1
begin to assume some authority |
during winter term and by spring
the sponsors would be advisory!
members of each freshman hall '
The freshman hall officers would
form their own council and be gov-1
erning their own activities by the!
end of the school year.
The report suggests that the
present counseling system be modi
fied so that one person in each
hall (to be called a Resident As
sistant! would do all the counsel
ing in academic matters. The. Resi
dent Assistant would be selected
from graduate students and would
be the administrative representa
tive in each dormitory hall. He
would be concerned with disciplin
ary matters.
Sponsors Keep Order
The job of maintaining discipline
and order in the halls would be the
responsibility of another person,
the sponsor. Sponsors would be
employed only in the freshmen
halls, and the report suggests that
there be one sponsor for each floor
in the veteran's dormitories, if the
vet's dorms are chosen for the
freshmen living units. It is point
ed out that one sponsor should be
responsible for not more than 50
Sponsors would be selected by
a committee formed for this pur
pose. which would include the
head sponsor once the committee
was functioning. There would be
a men's housing committee and a
women's housing committee. The
housing committees would be
largely composed of students.
I Ian Proposes Orientation
Another aspect of the plan pro
poses a much more comprehensive
freshmen orientation period at the
beginning: of fall term. Part of the
orientation is directly related to
the counseling program but the
committee also suggests that a
pre - registration committee be
formed which will work closely
with the Resident Assistants and
sponsors. The pre-registration com
mittee would number from 40 to
00 students and would be respon
sible for making every new Ore
gon student familiar with the cam
pus way of life.
The committee's report says that
"the highest goal of the entire
living prograjn is to develop stu
dents whose first loyalty is to the
University of Oregon, and to
dorms, houses, or anything else
thereafter." Counseling and in
doctrination toward this end would
be aided by placing all freshmen
together in living groups.
A committee spokesman said the
plan is not offered as any sort of
compromise or carbon copy of the
program in force at Stanford, but
presented with the hope it will be
accepted on its own merits as ap
plicable tp. Oregon. .. ..
Rides Bring
Phi Delts
Social Pro
Phi Delta Theta was placed on
indefinite social probation Thurs
day by Director of Men's Affaiis
Kay Hawk for violation of Inter
fraternity Council rules concern
ing senior rides.
The fraternity was the third
placed under the restriction thin
year. Similar action had previouf -
ly been taken against Alpha Ta r
Omega and Phi Kappa Psi for
other violations by thc*ir member :.
Hawk said that certain membei a
of Phi Delta The-ta had "exercised
poor judgment in their indiscrim
inate use of liquor during a recer-t
senior ride." He pointed out that
this was a direct violation of rules
diawn up by the IFC winter tern*.
The rules, which also include
clothing requirements for those
being taken on the rides and a
stipulation that no fewer than two
seniors are to be taken togethe
were drawn up by a special com
mittee in the IFC after ATO wes
put on social probation for the ac -
tion of some of its members dur
ing a senior ride.
The IFC delegated itself power
to deal with violators of the rules
and Hawk said some further actio -
may be taken by it.

Council at a meeting Thursday

fairs. explained the circumstances
behind his placing the Phi Delta
Thetas on social probation. The
action was taken following a mis
conducted senior ride by members
of the house.
Hawk urged that the fraternities
take steps within their own organi
zations to combat this problem c;i
misconducted senior rides.
"Anything done by one of yovr
members on this campus reflect s
on the whole group the Univer
sity and the fraternity system,'’
Hawk pointed out.
