FATE OF SORORITIES
UNO FRATERNITIES IS
TO BE KNOWN TODAY
poard of Education's Invest!-
gating Committee Meeting
( to Consider Question Today.
REPORT WILL BE FOLLOWED
poard of Education Head Says
, He Will Stand by Report Re
What result will the executive
' , meeting of Board of Education's In-
' vcatlgators this afternoon have on
Jthe fraternity question? Hundreds
of students In high schools, as well
' tss m'any parents and friends, are
Janxlously awaiting the answor.
Dr. John Van Schalck, Jr., president
. lot the Hoard of Education, says that
Jwhllo ho Is going to follow the course
Jrecommended by tho committee, thcro
v tare certain conditions that make abo-
Mltlon of tho fraternity a moro serious
.Question than appears at first sight.
J At tho meeting of high school prln
Jclpals last week, thcro was present
b principal of a private school in tho
itclty. When abolition of the fraternity
J was discussed, he said: "A mother
Jcamo to mo some tlmo ago in regard
' to her son. During the discussion,
Jehe mentioned her son's fraternity, I
Ipromptly told her that her son did
Snot belong to a fraternity, sinco they
'wero barred at my school.
t Didn't Ilelleve It Possible.
F "She said that she was suro that
Ithe boy did belong, but I told her
Jthat for o fraternity to exist In a
school as small as mine without my
"knowledge was practically Impossi
ble. "When she told me that sho had
Jentcrtnlncd her son's fraternity at her
home several tltne3 In the past two
years, I promptly confronted the
members and they admitted that tho
Jsecrot socloty hud been In existence
" This is a condition that Dr. Van
ISchalck Is considering, ho stated.
Many admit that without the frater
nity school life would be simplified,
but since the fraternity is established
It is contended that Its abolition will
bo attended with much difficulty, if
Is 111k Subject.
Superintendent Thurston said of the
situation: "The abolition of the fra
ternity Is a big subject, and concerns
too many persons to go about any
changes promiscuously. I believe that
It Is a subject that domunds most
careful consideration. liuforo any
steps to stamp out tho fraternity ab
solutely nro taken, the fraternity In
terests will bo given an opportunity
to present their case."
Iho fraternity interests have never
beon heard, nor have the teachers of
the schools. Tho matter arose at a
meeting of the Eastern High School
Parent-Teacher Association In the
spring. A committee of the associa
tion compiled a voluminous report,
which was brought before tho Board
of Education. The board referred It
to tho present commltteo. which Is
now hearing all nrguments for and
against the societies.
Teachers Arc Opposed.
That a majority of the high school
teachers are opposed to the fraterni
ties is evinced by the resolution
passed at a meeting of tho executive
committee of the High School Teach
ers Union at Business mgii bcnooi
yesterday afternoon. '
Representatives of the fraternities
mddre'sscd members present and
stated why they thought the frater
nity should bo recognized. Many
questions were asked on both sides.
The fraternity members wero then ex
cuid and tho committee discussed
The following resolution was
"Whereas, since we are, togethor
with the Board of Education and the
school officials, custodians of the
public Interest In educational mat
ters, we believe It would be disloyal
to our trust to sanction or foster an
Institution which Is In Its nature
neither public nor democratic; and
"WhercaB wo believe the exlstenco
of fraternities and sororities in tho
high schools of tho District of Co
lumbia are decidedly Injurious to the
best Interests of tho school system
and to the student life in general;
"Whereas, a careful canvass of the
union members of nil tho faculties
of the white high and normal schools
lm disclosed nn overwhelming senti
ment against the continuance 01 tnese
"Be It Resolved, That the 'High
School Teachers' Union of Washing
ton, D. C, hereby recommends to the
Board of Education that every effort
he made to abolish the fraternities
and sororities In the high schools of
the District of Columbia."
The vote of tho oommlttee was 0 to
3, with one member not voting. Prior
to tho meeting, members of the com
mittee made a canvass of faculties of
high schools for an expression of
opinion of the status of the frafsrnlty.
In two schools members of the union
were unanimously opposed o the so
cieties, and In the others, were op
.'posed by a large majority.
The executive committee Is to be
represented at the meeting today, to
pdd Its voice against recognition' of

and caused gas to form; I could not
sleep at night and got A'ery weak and
run down; I was so constipated that I
had to take some medicine all the

I hud read so much about Plant Juice,
and tho good it had done In our city,
that I got a bottle to try It. Two bot

can eat my meals and enjoy them, and
sleep well at night. Plant Juice has
been worth Its weight In gold to me,
and I am only too glad to recommend
