The report is the result of a survey
made by the office of the dean of
men in November, 1933. The survey
revealed an unsatisfactory financial
condition in most of the social fraternities on the campus. The committee decided that it would be
helpful to these groups if a closer
cooperative supervision was exercised.
At a Joint meeting of the President's council, the Interfraternity
council, and the alumni and faculty
advisors, a committee was appointed
to work out a plan. On this committee the Interfraternity council
was represented by Henry McCown.
Robert Hess, and" Bazil Baker. The
President's council representatives
were H. W. Flnley, W. C. Gaines, and
Jack Faunce. The faculty and
alumni advisors' group was represented by Howard Matthews, Robert
Haun, and Roy Moreland. Assistant
Dean of Men Lysle W. Croft acted
for the administration.
The findings and recommenda
tions of the committee were reported
to a Joint meeting of the three
groups, passed unanimously,
referred to the President and the
Board of Trustees.
The report follows:
