Gator Editorial Assistant
The uncertain barrier between Greeks and Independents
1 was probed by a subcommittee, and found to be so ill-defined
* that the committee is not sure it really exists as a campus
I problem.
Politics Again
Reasons for such a barrier were stated distinction between
i the two groups during periods where campus politics are
: receiving a great deal of emphasis and publicity; somewhat
; limited social and cultural opportunities for independents.
i But the committee could find no real conflict where the two
groups meet on common ground.
Religious centers, Florida Union programs and student
| body affairs throughout most of the year seem to show
| little or no evidence of a conflict, according to the com com?
? com? mittee consensus.
No projects were suggested by the committee for two
5 reasons. The committee did not feel projects would be well
\ received and would probably have a false atmosphere;
3 and these projects would be under the jurisdiction of other
5 subcommittees.
? Do No Good
In discussing projects, the committee reported that a type
5 of program, such as an open house, special dinners or par par-3
-3 par-3 ties for independents undertaken by fraternities would have
3 no real value, and might only serve to make a barrier, if one
: exists, insurmountable. A forced relationship of this nature
\ between the groups would do more damage than benefit.
Btew Parsons, president of IFC and subcommittee chair chairman,
man, chairman, said one of the most important things that should be
done is to find a place open to students in the evening, such
as the Florida Room or the Hub, where an informal basis
of contact could be established.
This suggestion ties in with similar suggestions made by
s the sub-committees oh social affairs and cultural activities.
3 The emphasis on the need for an informal gathering place,
3 open regularly, seems a strong indication of the desires of
