Dear Editor:I am writing in response to the advice column in your Dec. 1st edition, “Girls’ night out or ‘Girls Gone Wild?'” By Danni Nutter. I am glad to see that the Chronicle will print something so offensive to a particular group. The first “advice” line states “slap my ass and call me a Tri-Delt.” I would have to ask Ms. Nutter if she believes that women such as Leeza Gibbons, Katie Couric, and Elizabeth Hanford Dole made it to where they are today with a few nights of “slap my ass and call me a Tri-Delt.” I would have to argue NO! I would like the readers and advice takers of Ms. Nutter to know that “The purpose of Delta Delta Delta shall be to establish a perpetual bond of friendship among its members, to develop a stronger and more womanly character, to broaden the moral and intellectual life, and to assist its members in every possible way.” No where in the purpose or bylaws of Delta Delta Delta does it state that a few nights of “slap my ass and call me a Tri Delt” are appropriate in any way shape or form. It is too bad that all the coverage the Greek System at the University of Utah gets within your paper is negative, or when it is a positive something it receives two paragraphs and we are constantly misquoted. Fraternities and sororities were founded on a basis of being philanthropic organizations in order to prepare their members to be good citizens and future leaders of the country. I would ask the readers of Ms. Nutter’s advice column to do some research of the Greek systems across the nations before jumping to the conclusion that fraternity and sorority members are drunken pigs, and sleazy girls.
