On October 11. 1911, the University
! Faculty took action on this matter.
The exact wording of the minutes of
the faculty action is as follows:
"It was decided to grant the
fraternities a suspension of
the regulation forbidding
students with less than twenty-four
hours credit to live
in chapter houses so that for
this session only, or until
June 1912. such students may
board in these houses."
The only further action taken by
"the Uniersity Faculty was to amend
the rule on June S, 1912. by adding
"Except that the committee on
Student Activities may at its
discretion waie this rule in
the case of any student who
has made 15 hours credit in
his or her first semester in
At the same time the UnUersity
Faculty passed these resolutions:
"1. That as regards the ques
tion of admitting new students
under the l." hour regulation, the
Committee on Student Activities
shall especially faor the fratern
ities having a creditable standing

be made to understand that next
