Even Sorority Girls Repudiate
The Selfish Attempt To
Steal Privileges
Pram faculty and undergraduate, and
even from sorority sources, this week
came the suggestion that if fnlersdrorily
cmuicil persists in Its undemocratic and
selfish course a remedy itiuat be found
in ihn establishment of a competitive in
lersnmrify council, to be known possibly
as the Hellenic council. Cue suggestion
was iliai, if the present council remains
stubborn, new groups ,,( girls can be
rapidly recruited and the membership of
ibe new council thus soon reach a point
of|iml to dial of the present. In a few
years, ii was explained, judging by the
success that the newer individual sororities now have in compcling with tin
oliler groups, ibe new council would be
mi about cfiual terms with the old council,
l*'nctillj' sentimcul seemed to he almost
entirely on the side of ibe four-fifths of
the student body who are being exploited
by the Intersorority council, The faculty
members, uiiiiillucnced by .any consideration save thJ facts, agreed in general
with the Ni'.ws' arguments.
Even much of ibe Impartial sorority
opinion shifted in the side of the nonsorority girls.
Intersorority council
however, beset with Internal con fusion
fiver the violation of rushing rules by
one of its members, continued its silent
admission of the NKWH' charges. One
member of the cmuicil, a sorority president, in a letter published elsewhere ill
ibis issue admitted frankly that the ruling is selfish and that as an individual
student she disliked the whole idea of
sororities for the reasons that they are
unselfish and undemocratic, As a sorority president, however, she said that the
"new ruling is inevitable."
The two w men students in whom the
student body has in this and previous
years placed the greatest trust and given
the greatest honors both issued statements in which they agreed thai the
N'KWS is right and (hat tile Intersorority
council is wrong.
I loth are sorority
girls. The statements are published on
Ibis page.
No opposiiii n would be placed by the
faculty or the administration in the formation of a new intersorority council,
il was learned from sources believed reliable.
Willi v n i e central form of
machinery to start the work, it was fell
that little difficulty would be found in
working out the plan for a new council.
This, however, would be done only a- an
emergency measure in the event that the
Vresent council retains its ruling.
The membership of the present council may be slightly changed soon, as
sororities are conducting their mid-year
elections and some may choose new
presidents. The council itself is by no
means unanimous in its support of its
ruling, il was learned, and in no sorority
is sentiment entirely in favor of the nil-

MR, EDITOR:
As an individual. Mr. Editor, I agree with your belief that liilersororily
council should allow more than two sororities to be on probalinn ai one time,
Keen uuder the present ruling il is possible for sororities to become organized
and lo show a tendency of permanency, but I feci thai were I a member of
one, I should like to have the hope of being recognized as an eipial to the
members of oilier sororities.
Ititersfirorlty's ruling is ifndemocratlc and
selfish.
As a member of a sorority, I feel that I have reaped immeasurable benefits
from my social contacts. Such pleasures and confidence and understanding
I should like to have extended to every girl in State College.
Of necessity, competition will increase and sororities will lose their "cxcltisivciiess," Thai, however, should he beyond the purpose of sororities. Ii
certainly is not the conscious aim of existing sororities. Their aim is in
obtain for sisters lho.se girls whose ideals are ill accord with (heir mvii, ami
with whom they should like to live and work- for an indefinite time,
The live year probation period will insure the council thai the sorority
applying for recognition is worthy of membership, I believe the number
applying should he limited, hut two seems to be too severe a limilalitiii,

WHOM
IT MAS
Co.Vt I.K.N :
In regard lo the new ruling of fntcrsororily council concerning the probation period for new members, I wish in say that, though I belong lo a
somrlty of the council, I do mil approve of its action in Ibis mailer.
In the first place, the N'KWS has the idea that because of the ruling new
sororities cannot he formed, This is n mistake, There can be "a sorority for
every girl" If that is desirable or probable; but said sororities, for member-hip in Intersorority council, must be on probation two at a lime, for five
years.
And vvlial difference docs thai make? Anyone with cm linoii sense knows
iii.,1 any new in g,ii,i/.,iilon, whether It be a soroilly or uliat Hot, should he
no probation for a time to guarantee (lie durability of its organization and the
stability of its ideals and standards; but I agree with the N'KWS thai in so
lengthening the probalinn period and limiting the membership, the council ii
fostering loo much a spirit of exclusiveness.
Will the sororities lose their preseni dignity if the length of period is
decreased? Very well! If they caiuiol retain it in the lace of competition,
(l<> they deserve it ? I have no fear for my sorority.
And will there be formed merely a hunch of cliques am! chilis of girls vvlm
associate together or perhaps can't gel in any other sororities? Fine! Did not
all the present sororities except the oldest, Delta Omega, come into being in
that very way? And vvnuld they prevent others from doing what they have
done and keep llleitl from the privileges anil joys of the fellowship they enjoy?
True, new sororities will form anyway if the need is fell; anil, of course,
these sororities want to join [ntersorority council! Il is the one body which
simplifies and unifies the whole situation and fosters the right spirit between
sororities, Wouldn't it he .a nice state of affairs if new sororities should set
up their own rules; or, tired of the loo-long probation period should form
a new council? Though the preseni system vvnuld doubtless need a Utile reorganization, how much better il would he to let all live and work and play
together in harmniiv and understanding with each oilier,

Sorority Officers Violate Point System;
Evade Rule's Spirit, Grab Student Jobs
I he spirit of tlif student point system
for limiting the number of offices which
any one sludenl may hold in College
affairs is being violated by the presidents
if the eight College sororities which
make up Ibe liilersororily council, the
N'KWS is able to reveal today. The
iffices of the sorority presidents and of
he president of the Intersorority coun•il arc the only offices of any type of
indent organization which are not assessed points under the system. The
•iTcct of this is to give lo the sorority
illieers a privilege of holding more
illiees than may be held by any other
• Indents. This is considered another illdance of the sorority attempt to mainlain a position as a privileged class at
.he expense of non-sorority students.

The effect of this discrimination is to
allow sorority presidents to bold additional sindcni positions which otherwise
might en in other sorority girls or to
non-sorority members. This is direct
violation of (he spirit of the point system,
which was intended In distribute offices

When the first p.dm system was drawn
up several years ago and was presented

"Oh what meat lias this our Caesar fed that lie lias grown
so great?"
That Is a rjtiestioit that the College may well
ask Intersororily council as the council, confronted by an
increasing wave of student distrust and suspicion, continues
mi its selfish way. The College may well demand by what
prerogative and under what authority the council presumes
to set itself up as the arbitrary dictator o f State College

they last heard the
It was when they them-
selves were trying to pry their way into the council. The
sorority obstructionists used the same tactics against them.
It is a wise statement that the way to make a communist
behave is to give him a little money.
The three sororities now on probation could tell a very
similar story. These same Intersororily fallacies are those
they too, had to light. And the last of the three to get
into probationary membership got there only because the
Intersororily council was afraid to apply its new ruling
against it. The council feared that i f it adopted and
applied the rule at near intervals, the College administration
would force it to change the rule. So the council grudgingly allowed the third sorority on probation and then
adopted the rule, with the purpose of making it apply as
soon as the next group should seek probation.
'I he first sorority at College, Helta Omega, was formed
thirty-seven years ago. For six years it had no opposition.
Then a group of girls decided they wanted sorority membership, There was no lulersorority council to steal this
from them then, and so they organized. The year following, a third group decided it had just as much right to
enjoy sorority life as had its two predecessors.
So it
became a sorority. A year after that another group made
the shift to sorority standing. These three sororities which
sprang up in three years were IJta Phi, Kappa Delta and
I'si (lamina, three of the eight groups which now say that
a sorority every two and one-half years is plenty and which
would make a third sorority wait live years to get on probation, and would then force it to remain on probation live
more years, a total of ten years!
Ten years vent by until a religious club decided to
become a sorority.
The four existing sororities did not
attempt to knife the lieu one, and it organized.
Then
nine more years went by, A group o f girls decided in
10f7 to affiliate with a national sorority.
The group did
so and became Slate's first women's national. Three years
went by and the College enrollment increased from 600 to
1,100. In 1020, another group of girls made up its mind
that it loo was entitled to enjoy sorority advantages, Last
year an eighth group banded together, and the council, then
not so tyrannical as now, was pleased to allow it admission,
after the customary probationer)' period. The new sorority
Immediately disgraced several of the old ones by grabbing
diree times running', the scholastic honors of the College,
a procedure which evidently has made the council very
wary about taking new members. For the sororities have
sufficient difficulty competing in politics and social activities
without encouraging new groups which are able to make
nearly a I! average in scholarship!
Thus, then, was developed this group which has so
suddenly Income jealous of possible rivals and ready to
do nearly anything to prevent more sororities from rapidly
growing up. The council members quibble and say they
are not preventing sororities from organizing, but are
merely keeping them from the council; in the next breath
they reveal the quibble by giving their private opinion of
sororities which are not on the council.
The situation is rapidly reaching a stage where the
council must either repeal its ruling (which even now it
has not tried to defend) or face the fact that another
intersororily council will be organized which in a very
few years will be able to equal the present council.
A SORORITY PRESIDENT SPEAKS
.irSTIKH'ATIO.V
f I ) Why Hhoulil an "outsider" trv to assume the role of
an authority ami cause .-nidi a disturbance a* lie '-as through
editorial* in the NEWS for which he plainly tloen not have
the facts u l i l i which to prove his statements? True, he has
stirred ii|i puhlle anil private sentiments, and at last has
brought forth a "statement of justification" from a member
of Intersororily Council.
The Council lias b. en falsely accused of criminality, selfishness and Infallibility.
Is it criminal to deprive 800 young
women of lie|«mi.'lrm lo a secret urbanization which lias for
years received H black mark In the public eye? Granted
the public Is mistaken, why are sororities prohibited in the
lai'Be women's cullCfccs'.' ( •; > \y0 a , . e selfish because we are
living up lo Iritersnrorlt.v's rules and properly testing any
group before It is allowed to become recognized here. We
are Insisting on what we believe is for the best for the College. We are infallible It Is said because we have not attempted to Ju.-iil'v intersorority's ruling. This attempt at
Justification I hope will dispense with the "public's" idea of
our Infallibility.
As for prolonging the argument, I see no
argument either, as the editorial staled. Kor -. true argument necis-bates a knowledge of the subject on both sides;
and plainly an outsider lias not the fails wllh which to
combat us who do have them. IS).
Now the ipiestlon Is, do we want at State College, a "sorority" springing up and being "recognized" every six months
or so? What would the condition then bo In such a
"Utopia?"
Why, every or every oilier girl would be a
"sorority" girl.
Rushing would be Impossible.
It Is hard
enough to manage and to establish rules satisfactory to
eight recognized sororities now. < I) College social life would
be nothing Out one big squabble after another. Class spirit,
V. W. and C. A. A. would lie submerged In the struggle.
Social chaos would reign. What standing would the organization of "sorority" have In the eyes of the world? (5) It
would be a farce. Imagine every man in some big university, for Instance. In a fraternity.
Would that bo reasonable?
Is that what is wanted?
Hi) Ho why practically
every girl In a sorority?
(1) If "every girl a sorority g i r l " Is lo lie the slogan,
then why nol try the system which was used In Klmlra College? The sororities there rotated from senior class to fresh-
man class as our class colors do hero, For Instance, the
11123 seniors belonged to sorority A. B, C, say, and the Incoming freshmen would belong to A. H. (.!, also, K.nry freshman could belong to this sororlly provided she paid a
"blanket tax," She wore the pin, attended the meetings, etc.
but such ft sorority did not have the standing that even n
local sorority has here.
II could not. become nnlloiuil ; li
was not organized on the right basis for this, All that many
gills care about really is who her or not limy "sport" a sororlly pin, This system has been abolished in I linlra mainly
because It detracted from class spirit Ihrou'-di sororiiy rivalry,
and because M produced cliques,
If four largo soroijlles
would do this, what would be the result If we had twenty
sororities, say, with only thirty members a piece on ftin
average? My opinion Is that any sorority girl will criticize
sororities on the ground that they do produce cliques, ami
are not conducive lo the much desired unity of a class. Klmlra found this so In the ease of lour sororllles. Whin would
become of State College with twenty cliques or sti? CM.
There Is one other argument, however. CM Provided ;hal
Su:e College continues lo grow, as she will, especially when
giver larger quarters, I have no doubl Inn vvhal each tororlty could be willing to Increase its quota to forty members perhaps Instead of thirty excluding seniors. And with
an Increase in students, her percentage of members would
remain about as It Is now—that Is the sorority group would
remain steady.
What are the benefits of a sororiiy anyhow?
lOvlilonily
they must be tremendous', according to the articles we have
been reading in the NKWM for the past moni.h. ( I l l ) I believe that their creates! benefit here is thai I hoy do take the
place in n small degree of a dormitory and they fiiellltai.f!
rooming eondlllons. The girls live logcihur, and those not
living In the house are hound to those in the house by common Interests and Ideals. "Social polish" why yes, some of
course. I fear that the XKVVS unconsciously Mattered us a
hit when II attributed us with that finesse,
When we got a dormitory hero, a thing which will bn
realized In a few years, ilie need of sornijlles will diminish.
Those existing will remain active probably, h.il really nol so
active ns they are now. So why have fifteen or twenty new
unstably organized sororities lo merely dwindle out? Look
nt Vassar College. Sororities are absolutely prohibited ,ii
They say that they are too "cliquey;" they live m dorms
and'tlo noi feel the need of the social eontai I as we do lure,
at present without dorms.

arguments (as we have numbered flieni In her letter).
(I)
The "outsider"
(the STATU COII.I'UK NKWM. or its c II-
tor) has no personal Interest In the sororlly subject, except
as It effects the general question of the welfare of the whole
student body. That is the only reason for and the only Justification of Ilie XKWS' campaign.
C'j Certainly you should "properly test" all new gi p.

you make a possible third wall live years in gel on probation

(7) Kvery girl In a sorority Is not the Xuws' slotaa. The
council may try the hilinlrn system If II wants. The Xu.vs
thinks that system sounds even more ridiculous Hum ihe
present system here.

MISS GREENE DEFENDS COUNCIL
While I might prefer to discuss the mere cultural phases
of college life, when one is in Itome one must burn Roman
candles—there Is no alternative, So In reply to ,v • letter
of February 17, I must continue In the sensational strain
of the " I uilly Mows," though I would much prefer to Imitate
the more Intellectual style of tho "New York Times."
II Is so hopelessly futile to prolong an Issue of this nature.
All secret organizations are by their very nature essentially
undemocratic. .1.* foil// as irr hare sororities nml fraternities (it Stair College, we cannot have on Ideally demaeratio
atmosphere.
But we have sororities and fraternities, and those who
represent sororities, naturally wish to proteet them. When
wo made the rutin/) In question it was with the point of
view that the sororities would increase in proportion as the
student body increased. It was not with the point a) view
that every girl should belong to a sorority.
When that day
arrives, there will he no sororities. / admit that Ihe ruling
Is selfish, but necessarily selfish. As an Iniliriiliial
stuilrnt
I dislike the whole idea of sororities for these rem reasons—
they arc selfish and undemocratie. As a inemlir of a sororlly
and as a member of Intersororlty council, I am commend
that the new ruling is Inevitable and consistent with the
whole Idea of secret organizations. There never has been
and never will be any Issue to dodge.
May I commend you for .your gallantry in this mailer,
and may I also suggest that It would lie in much better
taste for you to defend the cause of the non-fraternity man.
Very truly yours.

We agree absolutely that it would be in much better

in a eauurll for the purpose of keeplni) other fraternities
from organizing. If they ever do attempt so selfish a course
you have tho XKWS' assurance that this paper will at luck
that evil ns much as it has attacked the similar present
evil of the Intersororily council. But the present fraternities have never attempted such an action.
