extensive research on the fraternity
system at UNC. This article, the second in
a series, concerns pledge training at
fraternities and some of the inherent
Due to the trend in recent years
toward a more liberalized pledge program
in fraternities the essential requirement of
a fraternity pledge is now to become
acquainted with the brothers.
This idea embodies such concepts as
learning certain facts about the brothers
and the house. Although this is a
relatively worthwhile idea, the overall
effectiveness of this program is seriously
hindered by two prevailing conditions.
The first deals with the manner in
which the information is given. Often just
a cursory sketch of himself is provided by
the brother. The pledge doesn't get an
opportunity to know the brother in
depth because he is psychologically
inclined to seek just enough information
to pass the pledge quiz. This does not
mean that the brothers are reticent to
discuss themselves openly with pledges,
but rather that the situation is conducive
to the pledge's and the brother's most

Frank received a letter dated Feb. 9 from Carolina Union
Director Howard D. Henry which stated: "Noting that you are
not a student this semester, your organization is no longer on
the list of recognized student organizations and therefore you
are not eligible to use the facilities of the University."
Henry said Friday afternoon he had heard Frank was no
longer in school. "I checked it out and found out he wasn't in
school. I checked with the administration and (IUNC's)
recognition (as a student organization) was withdrawn."
Henry pointed out his office did not recognize student
organizations-Dean of Student Affairs CO. Cathey's office
makes up the list of recognized organizations.
Cathey said Sunday that "Nyle is not now in the University
and is not authorized to establish a student organization.
"We put him on the list (of approved organizations), as we
told him, so he could have his coronation ceremony. Now he is
not even in school and is not authorized to be recognized as an
organization that has any right to ask for reservations of
Frank has written an "Open letter to Dean Cathey,
Chancellor Sitterson and the Student Body" appealing the
denial of University facilities.
The letter claims "the bulk of our (IUNC) activities are run
by and for UNC students."

education," Wilkins said, "but for God's
sake learn to read and write."

superficial efforts to become acquainted

The second condition which hampers
this phase of pledge training is that often
the exchange between brothers and
pledges is a one-way process. Once again
the situation fosters this process. Since
the pledge is the one who is being
quizzed, the brother is inclined to be less
inquisitive towards the pledge. This past
fall a new program was proposed at Chi
that could possibly ameliorate
weaknesses mentioned above.

"University edicts," Frank continued, "seem to always

warning or notice, without any mention of what you can do to
rectify the situation, without any common courtesy to you as

The decisions are often made by people at the lower
echelons of the bureaucracy when all evidence leads to the
conclusion that they were, in fact, made by someone higher up
who refuses to take responsibility for his decision."
Frank said, "I can honestly say that I've tried to channel
discontent with present educational institutions into
constructive, rather than destructive activities.
"I have always . . . emphasized the necessity of righting
social wrongs through attempting to create better ways of
doing things-not through civil disobedience, demonstrations,
etc. It is far more rewarding to create and build than to strike,
demonstrate or destroy.
"I like to think of IUNC and the Invisible Kingdom as
efforts in searching for better ways of doing things-and thus
should be regarded as an asset, rather than a foe, of anyone
sincerely concerned about educational improvements."

next fall, Charlie Miller, governor of
James Residence College, said Friday.
"James Dorm, in a way to create
support and interest for co-ed residence
colleges in general and for James
Residence College in particular, is asking
women on campus to participate in a
short survey, discussing their reasons for
living in residence housing, both co-ed
and regular types," Miller said.
James residents began delivering
questionnaires Thursday night to most of
the women's dorms on campus.
Miller said the administration has
discussed two proposals for
James making the dorm partially co-ed

950 residents living there next fall or
