Dr. Mills, Chairman of the Rules Committee, read the following recom-
mendations from that Committee coucerning fraternity scholarship:

The Rules Committee recommends that items 1 and 2 of the pro-
visions governing frntcrnity and sorority probation be amended as followm

1. Any fraternity or sorority which at the close of the
first semester of the 1955-56 school year or any semester thereafter
has an average standing for both actives and pledges lower than i
the allamen average shall be placed on social predation for the
following semester. Social probation shall prevent the fraternity
or sorority from holding any social affair to Which other than
members are invited.

2. If, during a semester of social probation a fraternity ;
or sorority again fails to meet the specified standing, it shall
be c0ntinued on social probation for a second semester with
additional supervision by the Dean of Men or the Dean of Women.
If, at the close of the second conSecutivc semester of social }
probation the fraternity or sorority again fails to meet the speci-
fied standing, it shall be prohibited from further rushing and
pledging. If, at the close of a third consecutive semester the
fraternity or sorority fails to meet the specified standing,
it shall immediately be prohibited from further initiation and
shall be called upon to show cauSe why its charter should not
be revoked. A final decision r.snecting the revocation of a
charter or the renewing of pledging and initiation privileges
shall me made by the University Faculty on the basis of evidence ;
furnished and recommendations made by the Dean of Men or the Dean
of Women. If a frwternity or sorority has been on probation for
any two (2) of three (3} consecutive semesters, it shcll to sub-
ject to the provisions governing two consecutive semesters of
probntion unless excused 3y the Dean of Men or Dean of Women.

The principal effect of this change is to place fraternity
probetiou on a semester basis rather than a yearly basis.
