Law School Group Hits Parietal Enforcement
Dorm Committee Asks Special Extension to Offset Inequality
A Law School Dormitory Council official has charged that parietal rules in University graduate schools are not being enforced equally.
Despite University policy of uniform parietal regulations among the graduate schools, the council has petitioned for an extension of Law School rules.
Uniformity in the Books
"We don't care whether the rules are uniform or not. The Law School is the only graduate school which is enforcing them. As a result we don't have the same privileges other graduate schools have," Harvey S. Krieger 3L, president of the council, stated. In a letter to the Law School Record last week, Krieger stated that "The only place there is now uniformity is on the books."
Wesley E. Bevins, Jr., assistant dean of the Law School, commented, "We recognize the dormitory council's problem. We are trying to work something out."
Rules "Optional" at Business School
Meanwhile, James L. Rollins, assistant dean of the Business School, stated that parietal rules at the Business School dormitories are "optional."
One University policeman said he was instructed not to interfere with anyone leaving the dormitories of the Graduate School or Arts and Sciences after parietal rules hours.
At the Law School, Dean Bevins has stated that most offenders are caught by police as they leave the buildings.
But William G. McLoughlin, assistant dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, denied that rules are not being enforced there. "In the Law School, policemen knock on the doors of those who do not sign out on time. We leave enforcement up to the Graduate Student Council and they're doing a good job."
