Excerpt from The Sigma Phi Epsilon Journal, Vol. 19: February, 1922 But the point is this: all of our mental defectives are not yet deceased. They even creep into legislatures and occasion ally run amuck. And every so often on one of those rampages they enact some anti-fraternity legislation. Of course, they can not secure a following unless fraternities have given them something to make capital of. A fraternity escapade makes a fine and juicy morsel for these cranks to chew. It behooves the fraternities to steer close to the shore, to avoid not only the actuality but the appearance of evil. This is to do no more than their duty; no more than every national organiza tion demands of its sub-chapters. Take your cue and elimin ate rough-house initiations. Reports of these affairs have drawn much unfavorable comment on fraternities and, so far as can be observed, they have had nothing to do with instill ing fraternity spirit in the tyro. Also avoid unfavorable com ment by refusing membership to that type of men that gets into trouble. Our fraternity is not a reformatory and we do not care to assume an unsavory reputation because of one or more bad eggs in our midst. Care in pledging will take care of this situation. Let us in passing leave this thought: chapters which head the scholarship lists do not get into unfavorable prominence. It is the old story again; good comes to those who do good - and the converse.
