Trabant Considering Ban

On All Open Campus Parties


University President E.A .

Trabant is considering a

recommendation to ban all

outside, open parties at the

university where alcohol will

be served.

The recommendation was

proposed at a dinner given by

Trabant for local alumni, na­

. '" ."M••!'*''¥' tional fraternity representatives,

and leaders of the

N e w a r k c om m u n-i t y .

?'residents of university

fraternities were not invited

to the dinner. Mayor William

Redd and City Manager Peter

Marshall represented the City

of N-.wark. The dinner was

held to discuss the recent problems

with drinking at campus

parties, according to

Dean of Students Raymond 0.


The recommendation,

which received only one

negative vote, would ban all

"open social functions involving

the consumption of

alcohol held outside fraternity

houses and residence

halls... at the University of

Delaware" if approved by

Trabant. ("Open" function is

defined by Eddy as any

gathering for which an invitation

is issued to the entire

campus or a large portion of

the campus.)

According to Dr. John Worthen,

vice president for Student

Affairs and Administration,

"Dr. Trabant has in-

dicated he favors the ban.''

According to Worthen and

Eddy, this recommendation

comes after the City of

Newark threatened to enforce

existing ordinances or pass

stronger ordinances concerning

drinking and disorderly

conduct. Eddy said there is no

way for campus fraternities

to control these large parties

or their "spinoff" problems .

Eddy said that one fraternity

member told him that open

social functions are no fun for

the members.

Worthen said the recommendation

will be given to the

Council of Fraternity

Presidents for their consideration.

He said he is

"quite sure that the council

wlll g1ve sel'ious consideration

to the recommendation."

At present, the council is trying

to draft a set of guidelines

for implementation of the

alcohol policy in fraternity

houses. Those guidelines

would have to be approved by

Worthen, who said that he

feels it would be difficult to

handle a long list of


Eddy said the recommendation

was a "tradeoff" with

the fraternities and that in

return ·for a ban on open campus

parties with alcohol, the

university would minimize interference

with the internal

affairs of campus fraternities.
