The much harassed Interfra
ternity Council Court will be up
for discussion again tonight.
A bill to be debated by the Di
Senate at 8 p.m. in the third floor
New East Di Chambers calls for
abolition of the court and . the
transfer of its jurisdiction to the
Men's Honor Council.
The "court has demonstrated its
inability and or disinclination to
properly handle cases under-its
jurisdiction," the bill charges, in
an obvious reference to the recent
Phi Gamma Delta hazing episode.
"There is no excuse for separ
ate courts for individuals," the
bill continues, "but rather that
all students should be subject to
the same Honor Council court . . .
"A due respect to the Honor
Code and Campus Code demands
that provisions thereof be ade
quately enforced . . . Violations
of these codes, as well as the
statutes of the State of North
Carolina, cannot be tolerated."
President "Henry Bowers last
month asked that the right to try
hazing cases be removed from
the court . after they acquitted
Phi Gamma Delta of charges.
In finding the fraternity not
guilty the court showed its "in
