Excerpt from The Record of the Hampden-Sydney Alumni Association, Vol. 8: July, 1934
Moreover, many a boy who accepts a bid and joins a fraternity is not financially able to do so, and yet attaches such importance to being a fraternity man that he feels that he cannot decline. The result is that he either puts an additional burden on his parents, who may be making a great effort to give him an education, or else he leaves college in debt to his fraternity, thus impairing his sense of Obligation and putting an additional charge on those who do pay their dues and contribute their part to the social demands made on the chapter. What would seem to be of greater importance to the fraternity itself is the fact that a number Of boys whose breeding, ability, and promise would make them most desirable and congenial fraternity men and reﬂect credit on the fraternity, have to decline because they cannot afford the cost.
