Credit Should Go To IFC
For Fraternity Standings
The scholastic standings of fraternities for the
past semester represents the highest made since the
Dean of Men's office liegan calculating the standings five years ajo. Now the Lug mystery is to
whom should the credit go the University Faculty
or the Interfraternity Council.
The Faculty passed a ruling a year ago that
stated that fraternities and sororities not making an
average standing of 1
(the all men's average)
this school year would be placed on social probation next year. If during a year of probation, a
fraternity or sorority again fails to make the specified standing, it will be prohibited from further
pledging and initiation, and be called upon to
show cause why its charter should not lx revoked.
Before this ruling was passed and without the
knowledge of the Faculty, IFC had already taken
steps to raise fraternities' standings. Pledges were
required to have a 1.2 to be initiated. The new
formal rush system installed last fall and changes
in intramural schedule gave fraternities more time
than formerly for studying.

The Frying Pan

Dean A. D. Kirwan said this week that the
scholarship of fraternities for the past semester was
"very encouraging" and that he was well pleased.

He pointed out thai whereas formerly UK fraternities rank low in scholarship compared with
other colleges, they are now far above the average
college fraternities. Few college fraternities have
an average above the all men's average, he said.
The Student Government Asstxiation in behalf
of IFC appeal the 1.3 ruling last February. The
Faculty voted to refer the matter to the rules committee for further discussion with fraternity representatives. Such meetings are presently being
We wonder what effect the fraternity standings
will have on the committee. Members may take
the stand that the rise in scholarship was a result
of the. Faculty ruling and will desire to retain the
rule. On the other hand they may say fraternities
have proven they can handle the problem themWe agree w ith the latter statement. The Faculty
only said fraternities had to make above a 1.3
standing or else, but IFC took definite steps toward
increasing the scholastic standing. These include
installation of formal rush, lxttcr intramural schedules, enforcement of study hours, increase in initiation requirements, etc.
Since we believe IFC's actions caused the rise in
fraternity standings and that the fraternities can
handle the matter better by themselves than by being forced, the rules committee should recommend
to the Faculty to repeal the 1.3 ruling and put the
problem liack into the hands of the fraternities.

Petition Signed By 300 Girls
Complains About Food In Dorms
The following petition or letter was sent to the
Kernel this week. It was signed ly 300 girls from
Patt Hall, Boyd Hall. Jewel Hall, Lydia Brown
House, the girl barracks, and the McDowell House.
It lias been circulating in the girls residence halh
for about two weeks.
After reeling the letter. Dean Sarah B. Holmes
said that a meeting w as held last Monday night of
representatives from the girls residence halls to
hear complaints they had against the food. She
said the complaints were simple and that if possible something will be done to amend them.
More meetings are planned in the future, Dean
Holmes said, and a statement about the meetings
will be released later.

Dear Editor:
With all the complaining going on around here
we thought we would try to sum up everything into
this letter and see if anything can be done. The
taef? The food served here at the dorms.
The first statement can be taken as a compliment.
We are all agreed on the fact that the food is basically good but there is a mystery surorunding what
they do to it in preparing it. Everything manages
to be tasteless or have some sort of flavor that is
out of keeping with the food. Let us take the chili
(as we are forced to do several times a week),

as you look at it, one can't help but wonder if the
Mexicans wouldn't revolt if they found that it was

called chili. There is no seasoning and chili powder
is so simple to pep up the taste. Simple, yes, but
not in our chili.
Many parents have complained about the amount
of money spent weekly by some girls. Ninety per
cent of this is raked in by surroundiifg restaurants
who are glad to see the girls pour in. If this
cafeteria would consider meal tickets as some colleges do. a lot of money could be saved. It is a
shame to see the food that is wasted every clay and
this could be decreased too. This fact we leave for
consideration. . . .
None of us like to go out and eat all the time or
patiently wait for "Chat and Nibble" to open at
night so we are asking for just a little help on solving this problem. When, week after week, vp can
predict the menu, a little variety is needed our last complaint we ask. . . . Why do they insist
on serving food that is left on the trays everytime
it is served. That should be a sure sign that it isn't
liked and is being w asted. For the good of everyone concerned, even the University's money, the
food should be improved.
As one girl so charmingly put it as she asked her
family for more money. . . . "It's strictly from
hunger. . . . "Mine".

Fear Produced In Educators
Time magazine is now probing the effect of Congressional investigations on American colleges and
universities. These investigations, the results of
which appear in the April 13 isue of Time, show an
increasing fear on the part of our educators fear
of speaking, fear cf writing, and fear of expressing
political opinions of Communism, either in or out
of the classroom.
This fear seems to be directly proportional to the
number of times men such as Senator Joe McCarthy
point an accusing finger at someone suspected of
being a P.ed sympathizer. Time's probe showed,
with frightening clarity, the attitude many educators
are now taking, "Sure we have freedom of speech,
as long as that speech doesn't touch on the subject
of Communism in the classroom lecture."
We regard this attitude and the conditions
which bring it about as dangerous and detrimental
to the welfare of the country. Few people will
deny that recognizing the nature of Communism is
necesary to fight it. yet it can't possibly be
if it is hushed up in the classroom because
of investigation-produceacademic cowardice.
of American Universities,
Like the Asscxiation
we "condemn Russian Communism as we condemn
ever' form of totalitarianism." But we also recognize the difference between teaching Communism
and preaching Communism. Furthermore, we know
that each university, as an "institutional embodiment of an urge for knowledge" is fully capable of
deciding who teaches and who preaches. While
many Congressional investigations stem from unfounded accusations or suspicion, a university is
fully aware of the role of the educator to explain,
to enlighten, and to present the facts. As long as
he does these tilings, he teaches.
For Senator McCarthy's information (and anyone
else who might Ik intcu sted ) , there are several
courses on this campus which include a study of
