The loss of respect for the
organization depreciates the
value of the post gained. But,
most importantly, everybody
and every organization suffers
in the long run.
Your fourth and last failure is
in not demanding that the IFC
consider and take action on the
many problems that face the
fraternity system today.
Through laziness, incompe incompetence,
tence, incompetence, or a belief that if you ig ignore
nore ignore a problem it will go away,
the Council has continuously
failed to consider problems with
which it is faced and then to
present a united front effort to
bring about the solution select selected.
As a result, not only is no
progress being made in the
building of the fraternity sys system,
tem, system, but we are throwing away
rights we have worked hard to
gain in the past.
No Action Taken
On Drinking Situation
The drinking situation is one
example. The fraternities were
warned that certain influential
persons felt the drinking situa situation
tion situation was such that the adminis administration
tration administration or the legislature would
soon be taking drastic action.
The Dean of Mens office has
for two years asked the IFC to
consider the proWem and at attempt
tempt attempt to reach a solution; to
date, no real action has been
taken. .the Council hasnt even
said they like things th e way
they are (which I certainly hope
they do not).
In desperation at finding no
way to get the fraternities to
move, and even faced with a
great problem of communication
with the fraternities, the Deans
office initiated the so-called dry
The merits of this program
are so worthwhile that there
was little opposition to the
edict, but the failure of the IFC
to discuss the problem with the
administration and participate
with the University in making
the decisions regarding the
problem has allowed the Univer University
sity University to establish the precedent
of establishing rules felt neces necessary,
sary, necessary, by unilateral edict.
Now more and more programs
are being placed in operation
affecting the fraternity system
without representatives of the
fraternities having an opportuni opportunity
ty opportunity to participate in the decisions.
UF Officials Trying
To Regulate Initiation
The latest move is an attempt
to regulate initiation procedures
by the coercive action of direct
contact with the fraternities na national
tional national offices.
Fraternity abuses in this area
are few, but extremes are well
known and should have been
checked a long time ago.
But the methods of indirect
coercion by the administration
through contact with national of officers
ficers officers cannot be approved. The
IFC is silent on this invasion of
our rights. There was a time
when special meetings and ne negotiations
gotiations negotiations would have made
page one of the Florida Alli Alligator.
The benefits and also the privi privileges
leges privileges of fraternity membership
would fill a book. But if todays
fraternity men do not take ac action
tion action soon, a great many of
those benefits and privileges
will be lost or taken from them.
You must resolve now to take
action in your individual chap chapters
ters chapters to strengthen the fraterni fraternity
ty fraternity system.
If the present Interfratemity
organization cannot be used
then another must be created.
If you do not take the responsi responsibility
bility responsibility of improving and strength strengthening
ening strengthening the fraternities at Flori Florida,
da, Florida, then you do not deserve to
retain the privileges.
