    Germany Renews
Student Dueling
HEIDELBERG. Germany — (U.R)
_Student dueling has returned to
Germany despite a post-war ban,
authorities report.
The scarred cheek has become
a mark of courage and honor. Stu
dents reported fraternity men have
been ordered by their officers to
practice dueling secretly once a
week and prepare for possible
Occupation authorities first ban
ned the sport because it was
practiced by aristocratic frater
nities from which the elite of the
army officer corps was selected.
It was thought to promote Ger
man militarism and nationalism.
The duels are held in secrecy
either at a secluded country spot
or in the attic of the fraternity.
Weekly practice sessions are
guarded by underclassmen and the
weapons, masks and arm guards
are kept hidden.
Dueling is being urged by the
old university graduates, many of
whom wear the three or four inch
scar on their cheeks. They have
insisted that the new fraternity
member again take up the manly
sport. In two cases the students
of the fraternity have split with
the grads and lost their fraternity
A member of a dueling frater
nity may be called on to fight two
kinds of duel. Most are “friendly,”
involving a brother fraternity
member, interested only in gain
ing the prized scar.
Very dangerous is the "satis
faction” duel arising from a dis
pute, which may involve a girl
friend or an insult.
