NEAL House Urges Responsibility Of Individuals "That kind of love is never free. It always costs some thing," said Chancellor R. B. House in answer to the ques tion, "Are social standards as to drinking and free love set by fraternities?" which a student put to him at the YM-YW supper forum last night. "And drink-- ing seems to be fairly well dis tributed between fraternity and non-fraternity people." "It is not a policeman, but the desire for a good life which is the best corrector," he said. "I have no doubt and I have evidence that drinking does go on in fraternity houses and in men's dormitories and in other places. But in order to enforce this rule 100 per cent we would have to have an incorruptible policeman for every student. Don't try to say fraternities or any other organizations are re sponsible. It is you who are to choose your own conduct. think more is done in this com munity to better the situation than in any more regimented place I know of." At this "Town Hall of the Campus" the original question was, Are iraternities irrespon sible?" The chancellor's answer was a definite no, while Walt Brinkley, who spoke as the stu dent representative, said, "So cially, fraternities are on the spot.
