Of Silent Majorities
Many times the word “apathetic” has been used to
label the average Elon student. The label fits but
"lack of spirit” is perhaps a better term.
Elon has a lack of spirit. Granted the spirit show
ing at a basketball game usually a liquid spirit
could disprove this proposition, but basketball games
do not create the spirit of the school entirely.
Spirit involves pride academically as well as ath
letically in a college and when there are students
wanting to transfer or complaining because they can t
afford to, there is something wrong.
Of course, facts and statistics could prove how many
students remain or transfer here as opposed to those
who transfer out but there still is an underlying dis
illusionment among many students.
Today it is in vogue to speak out in support of the
‘‘silent majority” and state that everyone is satis
fied with the way things are and if you’re not, why not
leave? Sometimes “silent majorities” may not say
much, but that does not entirely mean that they are
satisfied with everything either.

Committee to
Set Up IGC
Interested Greeks here
at Elon have banned to
gether in a self-formed
committee for the pur-
pose of establishing an
Inter - Greek Council
(I.G.C.), which will rep.
resent all fraternities and
sororities on campus.
Work began late in the
fall semester withcorre-
spondance and visits with
Greek organizations at
other colleges.
During the winter term,
the committee drew up a
constitution and by-laws,
which provide for the con
trol of the various Greeks
to be placed in the hands of
a consolidated Greek or
ganization — the Inter-
Greek Council,
At present, control of
the fraternities and so
rorities is under a facul
ty committee temporarily
established in 1962 to
“give the Pan-Hellenic
Council time in which to
propose a constitution for
the approval of the Board
of Trustees.” (1970 Elon
College Handbook, p. 56).
The I. G. C.’s Consti
tution, which was model
ed after Duke’s, provides
for two branches: the exe
cutive, made up of two
representatives from
each fraternity and soro
rity and headed by offi
cers elected from that
body; and the judicial,
composed of the frater
nity and sorority presi
dents. It will try of
fenses according to a
Penal Code now being
drawn up.
As soon as all is com
plete, the Constitution, By
-Laws, and the Penal
Code will be submitted to
the faculty for approval.
Myra Rothwell (Tri-Sig),
who was highly instru
mental in writing the Con
stitution, stated that “the
establishing of a self-
governing organization of
Greeks, will promote ma
turity, responsibility, and
cooperation among Elon
Fraternities and Sorori
At present, the various
fraternities and soro
rities on campus are

stitution, but with ad
ministrative approval.

president; and Susan Pell
