The men's and women's squash teams may not be winning all their matches, but the scores alone certainly don't tell the whole story. Last weekend in Dartmouth's Berry Racquet Center, both squads were shut out by Princeton, and the men fell 5-4 to University of Pennsylvania.

Brian Hayes '90 receives posthumous degree

Brian Hayes '90, who died of cancer last August only six credits short of graduating, will receive a posthumous degree at this year's Commencement. According to Assistant Dean of Students Barbara Strohbehn, Hayes' degree will be the fourth awarded since 1965 to an undergraduate who died before completing the required curriculum, but the first awarded under official guidelines. Discussion surrounding the decision to give Hayes a degree prompted the Dean's office to develop a formal set of criteria to systematically determine who should be awarded such a distinction.

Houses in jeopardy; Plagued by low membership, some fraternities look to fall rush

Some of the College's fraternities currently troubled by low membership are looking toward next fall's rush period to strengthen their houses. While there are fraternities with as many as 94 members, Kappa Chi Kappa, Gamma Delta Chi and Sigma Alpha Epsilon have 29, 28 and 18 brothers, respectively. Although low membership has caused two Greek organizations to dissolve in the past five years, the presidents of Kappa Chi, Gamma Delt and SAE do not foresee their houses following this course. In fact, two of the presidents said their fraternities are actively seeking to recruit new members and feel confident that their efforts will pay off in the fall. Gamma Delt President Todd Brackett '95 said the fraternity is having more parties this term and trying to involve members of the Class of 1996 in house activities. He said the fraternity is also urging some of the men who "hang out" at the house to become members. Although Gamma Delt is making a strong effort to recruit new brothers, Brackett said he would like to see membership remain somewhat modest. "We're working to up the size to tops 45," he said.
