IFC Votes to Support Homecoming,
Noise Parade Receives Criticisms
Inter-Fraternity Council decided
last week to support the proposed
abbreviated Homecoming schedule,
except a full-scale noise parade.
This decision followed a talk by
Homecoming Chairman Francis
A "snowball rally" was suggest
ed in place of the usual type noise
parade, including the traditional
i event without the time-consuming
inter-house competition. A com
petitive parade was criticized as
"requiring considerable organiza
tion for a successful result" con
! sidering that homecoming immodi
I ately follows Thanksgiving this
Miss Gilmore scented to favor
the suggestion, observing it would
"get the week-end off to a big
start." Other ideas for an abbrevi
ated parade this year included
using dishpans and similar objects
for noise instead of compressors,
eliminating the bonfire rally on
I Friday night, and eliminating the
noise parade completely.
Hand Vote Taken
' When a hand vote was taken to
determine how many fraternity
i houses were expecting most of
their members back before the
[ vacation is over, only a few presi
j dents voted in the affirmative. Rut
I one president observed that his
! fraternity brothers would all be
1 back on the campus by Friday
noon; others cited Thanksgiving
vacation as destroying homecom
ing interest this year.
An amendment to the IFC con
stitution which would raise the
grade requiremnt for fraternity
initiation was read aloud and will
be voted upon in the next meeting.
It stated that a man must have an
accumulative 2. GPA in addition to
the new-required 2. of the preced
ing term before he is eligible for
fraternity initiation.
Hallowen Parly Work Progressing
Work on the Halloween Party,
to be sponsored by the fraternities
and sororities was reported pro
gressing rapidly. To protect the
fraternity houses from vandalism
during the McArthur Court dance,
it was decided to erect a series of
road blocks.
President Dick McLaughlin re
vealed the Oregon State IFC presi
dent had recently called him t"o
solicit the support of Oregon's fra
ternities in fighting the installa
tion of pay telephones. The Ore
gon group went on record as op
posing pay telephones, but didn't
promise to actively enter the fight
for two reasons. ,
First, since pay phones have al
ready been installed cn this camp
us, the expense in removing them
would run very high, IFC said.
Second, two members stated that
the official Public Utilities Com
mission ruling specifics that any
residence containing over 12 resi
dents must have pay telephones,
and Director of Men's Affairs Ray
Hawk verified the assertion.
■IIFt' Brings Problem
A representative from the JIFO
presented his group's problem
trying to justify existence. He
pointed out that the JIFC, though
not active in the immediate past,
could "handle small jobs for the
IFC" such as cleaning up tho
Several suggestions were mad®
for projects for the group, such a-*
sponsoring a pledge dance, co
ordinating pledges, working with,
the Red Cross, and generally build
ing good will for the Oregon fra
, ternities.
Motion to Back JIFC
A motion for IFC to back ar>+
give advisory help to JIFC wa«*
tabled until a committee conlcfc
look into possible additional activ
ties for the group.
Since there is already a trophy
in circulation for the fraternity
having the highest GPA. it was de
cided that the new Sigma Chi
scholarship trophy would be
awarded to the house presenting
the best improvement over the
past year's grades.
A committee of three house
presidents was appointed to "an
ticipate th« problems, dates, etc.,
i of the coming rush season.'’
