Fraternities in Oklahoma pay no

forward a state senator with a bill
designed to change this happy state

passage of this bill would mean an
additional annual expense to each
fraternity chapter of $1,000. Such
an added expense, they say sadly,
would mean the extinction of every
group on their campus.
