FRATERNITIES. And. still the subject of high school fraternities grows apace. The latest developments In a situation that de mands the close attention of every parent in Erie, show that there "is something rotten in Denmark." While it cannot be said that the spirit of commercialism, displayed by a student In disposing of pins to students at a personal profit, is to be censured, still It must be admitted that temptation lurks In each and every secret society, and it is because of this fact that op position makes itself apparent. A student who can grasp the oppor tunity of financial gain in these secret societies is the embryonic successful business man, but the fact that a so ciety harbors tempation in every form Is enough to place it one the black list. If for no other reason than this.'secrct societies should receive a death blow. They are not the institutions for ' a high school, especially a public educa tional instution. ' Erie citizens, as a whole, readily be- SLICED BANANAS and Cream sprinkled with Grape-Nuts I ij Try it for dessert. "THERE'S A REASON." lieve that .secret societies are doter mental to the public school system. Teachers .employed at school do not regard them as a benefit, eminent pro fessors are strongly against them, and thf majority of citizens believe that the scope of a public educational in stitution does not harbor a secret so ciety. The institutions are too childish for comment. This who prepare the "rit uals" know no more about such things than does the average citizuis know of the exact number of canals on Mars. The work i decidedly rough with a decided leaning toward the vulgar. These societies have no heads of sane and sensible ideas the officers are a number of school boys who should be studying instead of attempting to per petrate pranks that would mean a sound whipping and no supper if prac tised outside of the secret society's do main. In colleges the question is decided!? different, and there is absolutely no room for a comparison. When the ar gument involves the subject of coll egs it is a question of men against children. The secret society has long been a detriment in public Institutions of learning. More than one crusade has been waged against them, and in the numerous cities where the war has reached a successful termination, the records and statistics are mute evi dence of the good that has been ac complished through the abolition of se cret societies.-r-From the Erie Dispatch. hand man?
