UNCs European Tour Has A Few Places Left mmiffee rms Emergency Body Starts Frat Probe The Emergency Committee on soc ial fraternities got down to business Thursday afternoon, but specific areas of discussion were not sub mitted for publication. All a spokesman for the group would says was that problems relat ed both to the houses themselves and the University were discussed by the committee set up by student ! government and the IFC. However. Student Body President : Sonny Evans said the body will j "recommend reforms in. the fraterni i ty system to the responsible parties j concerned." To that end it will study many aspects of fraternity j life, he said. Although reasons for the com ' mittee's institution have been vague, ' it was generally believed that re ! cent publicity about an alleged i fraternity "pajama party" put em ; phasis on the need for such a body. Problems Discussed j Evans said the committee Thurs j day discussed problems ranging : from fraternity social rules to fu I ture chapters on the campus, and (reached agreement on the need for. j specific recommendations to pre sent to the University administration. Just what those rt-commendations The UNC tour to Europe for ttiis summer has just about been filled. However, there are' still a few places open. The 10-week tour which wilt leave New York on the "SS Italia" June 7 and will arrive back on Aug. 29 has been planned by a group of Carolina students under the leader ship of Dick Stoker and Tog Saun ders and the advisorship of Jim Carse and Claude Shotts. the direc tors of the YMCA. Such places as Hamburg, Berlin. ! Cologne, Heidelberg and Munich will be visited in Germany. The next ! stops will be in Salzburg. Vienna j &nd Klagenfort. In Italy the tour will visit Venice, Rimini, Perugia, Rome, Florence. Siena. Milan and Bologna. Lucerne will be visited in Switzer land, and then the tour will move on to France where it will visit j win be, he said, will be determined Strasbourg, Nancy and Paris. To Visit World's Fair The Brussels World's Fair-will be taken in when the tour arrives at Belgium. Amsterdam will be the next stop in Holland. Four days will be spent in Lon don, and there will be excursions to Windsor, Stratford- on-Avon. and I other interesting sights. Then a week of free time will be j given to the students travel on their own. This '"UNC Goes to Europe" pro gram is unusual for three reasons. First of all. it is the first student tour that the University has spon sored. Inexpensive Second, it is being done through National Student Association Edu- in future meetings where fraternity problems will be discussed and acted upon by the body. High on the list for consideration is a new "visiting agreement" pro posed by the IFC to amend current regulations pertaining to drinking habits at fraternities wlien coeds are in the houses. The laws as now written are frequently violated. Evans, refusing to comment spee- so they can ifically on "problems" aired by the i committee, said the body "realizes the urgency of the situation which exists on campus." Committee Purpose "They also understand that the purposes of the committee are to discuss many aspects of fraternity life in an effort to propose and re commend reforms in the system to Students Tried In Recorder's Court cational Travel, Inc. and thus is ; tne respsonble parties concerned," unusually inexpensive, costing only ; Evans continued. $990.
