Dry rush at A&M?
Fraternity recruits pledges without alcohol
The Alpha Tau Omega fraternity
at Texas A&M is trying to prove it’s
possible to have a good rush and a
good time without alcohol. The fra
ternity is having a dry rush this se
mester, meaning they won’t be serv
ing any alcohol at rush parties.
Mike Lake, interfraternity council
rush chairman, said he feels the fra
ternity is setting a good example.
And he said ATO was ahead of the
game because next semester rush at
A&M probably will be dry.
“The National Interfraternity
Council is pushing hard for a dry
rush, and I don’t see any way around
it,” Lake said.
Lake said he thinks people will
continue to come to rush parties be
cause they want to know what frater
nities are like. He said drinking
shouldn’t be the only thing to draw
people to the parties.
Steve Price, ATO rush chairman,
says the fraternity’s first dry rush
party was an “oversuccess.”
“People are showing their class by
coming out here and not getting
drunk,” he said.
ATO President Sam Lorimer said
ATO chose to have dry rush after
their province chief suggested it.
And he said the increased awareness
of alcohol abuse also contributed to
the decision not to serve drinks.
“It’s obvious that the guys who are
here are interested in the frat — be
sides, drunks run off good people,”
Lorimer said.
ATO fraternity member Eric Kay-
sen said dry rush will not hurt
ATO’s chances of getting pledges.

Chihuahua opposition party
won’t boycott state elections
Associated Press
The opposition National Action
Party, which had threatened to boy
cott this summer’s Chihuahua state
gubernatorial elections to protest
electoral law changes, met Sunday to
choose its candidate.
Juarez Mayor Francisco Barrio
Terrazas, Chihuahua City Mayor
Luis H. Alvarez and Parral Mayor
Gustavo Villarreal Posada sought
the nomination for what they hope
will be their party’s first gubernato
rial victory in the country.
National Action, known by its
Spanish acronym as PAN, had
threatened to boycott the July 6 elec
tion because of recently imposed
electoral laws the party claims are
discriminatory and encourage voter
The PAN claims the ruling Insti
tutional Revolutionary Party, or
PRI, uses unfair tactics such as chan
ging the election laws and resorting
to ballot box stuffing to make sure it
maintains control over the country.
“It is very clear that the aim of
these laws is to facilitate electoral
fraud,” Barrio said.
Saul Gonzalez Herrera, governor
of this state along the U.S. border,
named a bipartisan panel to discuss
the new electoral amendments but
no action has been taken.
Pablo Emilio Madero, PAN na
tional president, predicted that the
party “will win despite the laws.”
He pointed to the standing-room-
only crowd thatjammed the civic au
ditorium in the state capital and said
the party would not boycott the elec
tions because “the people are in
clined to participate.”
Barrio said the PAN plans to
“convince the government that the
political consequences will be less la
mentable if the vote is respected.'
The PAN leaders would not sa>
what action the party might takeii
they don’t consider the elections fait
Barrio said, “We don’t believeu
violence as a solution.”
The PRI, which has controlled
Mexican politics for more than half;
century, never has lost a presidential
or gubernatorial election.

co’s eight opposition parties, sur

But strong gubernatorial cam

Leon and Sonora states last summer

fraud. PRI officials have denied the
