Seite 319 - ... trial court erred (1) in making certain of the above findings of fact to which he has excepted; and (2) in entering judgment dismissing his complaint. Appellant especially complains that the evidence does not sustain the finding that all active members of the Gamma Eta Kappa fraternity were high school students, and that any members not students were honorary members only. There may have been an instance in which an active member was not a student when initiated, but he had been a student immediately...
Seite 13 - Certainly no harm can come from organizing the alumni to consider and help end the present evils. Neither college nor fraternity conditions are at present ideal. They are often bad, and there is real foundation for all complaints. Unless promptly checked, the evils will grow far worse and more difficult to root out. This question must be studied by its friends, and the reform must come from the fraternity alumni; for the fraternities can be awakened and developed, but not driven, nor driven out....

Fourth, to cooperate in a large way with one another in the study and elimination of the too prevalent waste of lives during the college course. Fifth, to reach backward into the preparatory schools and clean up moral conditions there. Let the fraternities, and as well the colleges, be judged, not by wealth or age or numbers, but by the results which they work out in the lives of their individual...
Seite 454 - I am a firm believer in the great benefit that comes from our system of college societies. I think a great benefit is to be found in the association between the members of the different classes. I know many and many a case where the influence of the upper classes over freshmen and sophomores has saved young fellows from going wrong; has pulled them up and done for them what no president or professor could have done. I should be glad to see every student coming to this college under the guidance of...
Seite 319 - It will be observed that no attempt is being made by the respondents to deny appellant any instruction afforded by class work, or by the required curriculum of the school. He is only denied certain other privileges, such as participation in athletic, literary, military, musical, or class organizations. In other words, the respondents made it optional with appellant to determine whether, against the known wishes of the school authorities, he would continue his membership in said secret society, and...
Seite 20 - ... have allowed the pendulum to swing so far to the other side, and have not long ago returned it to its mean, and found educational influences to replace the small units of the earlier colleges. It is now time for the college fraternities to advance into the fourth period of their existence and to devote their great wealth and influence — First, to a careful study of present undergraduate conditions, and to improving those conditions in all their own chapters. Second, to inciting their own active...
