Tlie Threat Freshmen Pose to Fraternities
by Beth Blankenship
RUSHI That word conjures up
thoughts of Greeks, frat rats, gatoring,
and alcohol. It is once again time for fra*
temity rush, not only in Raleigh but In
most colleges in the stale.
A law enacted last year now makes it
illegal for those under 19 years of age to
drink any kind of alcoholic beverages.
This poses a special problem for fra
ternities because so many people are
walking up and down the row, and In and
out of houses, that It makes It difficult to
keep underage people out.
Fraternities are forced to take precau
tions in order to retain their alcohol
The Sigma Alpha Mu house thinks it
has a system that is working effectively.
“We set up a table at the doors," says
SAM little sister Laurie Hastings, “and
no one is permitted inside without show
ing the proper ID.
“They are then stamped and allowed to
go in. No one gets in without properlD."
Hastings explained that there are ABC
officers who come to the frats working
Mr. Randy Knight, Deputy Director of
the ALEH of the Crime Comn^ssion said
that undercover officers are very seldom
“We work mainly with the campus pol
ice,” Knight said.
“I may,” continued Knight, “get some
complaints now that new students are
Knight commended most of the frater
nities for implementing safeguards such
as the ones taken by SAM.
For fraternities, however, who do not
take such precautions the penalty is stiff.
A.W. Turner, Jr., attorney for the Alco
hol Beverage Commission said that if a
fratemity is caught sen/ing alcohol to un
derage people they are brought before
the board for discipline. "The board,"
dude cheese, hamburger, sausage, and
pepperoni. Two sizes of drinks are CNall-
able to go along with your fresh hot treat!
The Heed of Food Services, Connie
Branch, fe^s the new pizza shop will be
a huge success. The new promotion Is in
association with ARA Seirvices.

WHY GO SIGMA CHI?
NOTE: The TWIQ would like to extend
our many congratulations to the winners
of the "Best Frat Confesf; Sigma Chi.
The SIGMA CHI FRATERNITY was
founded on the principle that friendship
among members, sharing a common be
lief in an ideal, and possessing different
temperaments, talents, and convictions
Is superior to friendship among memtters
having the same temperaments, talents,
and convictions. Sigma Chi believes
genuine friendship can be maintained
without surrendering the principle of in
dividuality or sacrificing one's personal
Association with af ratemlty provides a
basis for friendships outside the Mere
dith Community. Fraternities also pro
vide for growth as an individual. Sigma
Chi not only sponsors social events, they
also have a v^ety of other activities to
serve the community. Some of these in

Cerebral Palsy (last year they raised over
$10,000), Bloodmobiles, sponsors for the
WalJace Village for Handicapped Child

Sigma Chi has also earned the respect
and admiration of their fellow Greeks

which they held the presidency for two
The Brothers and Little Sigmas of the

this organization and treasure the friends
