The problem of secret societies in secondary schools has long been a vexing question to educators in the field of secondary education. Because of this situation high schools have been torn apart, school principals and super- intendents have lost their positions, fraternity boys have been expelled from school, educators and parents have taken their differences to court, and the law-making bodies of nearly half the states in the union have taken it under consideration for legislation. A vast amount of periodical literature has been written on the subject of secret societies and not a few chapters in books dealing with the social life of the school. All, however, have either been rabidly prejudiced one way or the other, or have given an inadequate and sketchy outline. Would it not be a valuable asset to a high school principal to have a definite, complete, unbiased treatment of this controversial subject?
