Far too many and too detailed regulations are proposed only for the purpose of controlling the life of students who elect to join a fraternity or sorority. Are any other student organizations the subject of any such rules and regulations? Are all Dartmouth students subject to the same rules and regulations? The college has thrived for 245 years without measures intended to suppress individuality and personal choice on such a selective basis. Students who happen to be members of fraternities and sororities should be subject only to the the same rules and regulations as apply to all Dartmouth students, regardless membership in one of the many organizations, clubs, and other activities at the College. Beta, and all of the fraternities and sororities, should not cave in to the proposed demands that social status will inform the content of particular student rules and regulations.
