The Dailv Utah Chronicle, Thursday. December 7. Page Eighteen 5 'ERA may outlaw f rats' . by LIZ GARDNER Chronicle staff Opponents of ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) say its adoption may make the existence of fraternities and sororities illegal, but ERA supporters disagree. According to Mrs. Albert N. Jorgensen Jr.. a member of Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority's Grand Council, the ERA would "nullify the exclussion. . . granted by Congress which allows college fraternities and sororities to organizations," operate as single-se- x 00 Among the Educational Amendments of 1972. a section of Tide IX states that "No person shall be excluded from, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program receiving federal financial assistance." This measure included fraternities and sororities until a 1974 exclusion was granted by Congress. Passage of the ERA would again prohibit membership in fraternities and membership in sororities. "There is conjecture on both sides of the fence that the passage of ERA will affect fraternities and sororities," said Cherry Nqv. 19 - Sec. 24 shows featured items CEBISTHAS 0RHAMEHT3 HATOUDE CARDS VSZAIHS VDI all-fema- all-ma- le CHIMES DOLLS FOTTOT 1978 HUGS JTVELRT , VEATIKS BLOWI GLASS 8TAIITED GLASS ASSORTED POTT EST Ridges, coordinator of University le fraternities and sororities. "It's a very 'iffy,' rhetorical question; in its simplicity, ERA is raising more questions in some areas."

"They're simply trying to scare people into voting against ERA." she said. "ERA is a philosophy that sets forth the principal of equality. What would be unequal about men having a fraternity and women having a sorority? To me. it's Dodie Williams, spokesman for the Utah Mormons and Friends for ERA. said she believed the amendment will only affect professional sororities, not social ones, and as long as no public funds were involved, there is no reason to assume there will be a ." change. "There are always reasonable exceptions," said Williams. "It just sound like one of the myths or scare tactics which crop up periodically against the passage of ERA." "The ERA will pass as a constitutional amendment, but the courts will determine what is reasonable," said John Florez. director of the Office of Equal Opportunity. He said there is about a 50-5- 0 chance that sororities and fraternities would become illegal with the ERA's passage, but that "wc wouldn't know until case law comes up afterwards."
