             On behalf of the Fraternity of Phi Gamma
         Delta (Fiji), I wish to thank the members of
         the pro-gay, anti-fraternity coalition who took
         many hours out of their busy schedules'to run
         a "Greek Week" campaign of their own. Not
         only did you successfully embarrass the orga-
         nization on whose behalf you were acting, but
         you also managed to improve the image of the
I        MIT fraternitv system                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          I
             By deeming it necessary to delve 15 years
         and more into our school's history to find
         instances of homophobia, you made it obvious
         that our fraternity system has come a long
         way. In fact, the last organizational anti-gay
         action occurred in 1981, when 1 was in second
         grade and thought that "gay" simply meant
         "cheerful or jolly."
             Perhaps the true tragedy of the past week
         was that instead of promoting awareness, you
         effectively proved that you are purely detri-
         mental to the cause you claim to promote. In
         order for the homosexual community to attain
         the respect it seeks, it needs to educate and be
         respectable, not rely on stereotypes; even the
         most ignorant person will admit that the
         actions of an individual on his or her own
         behalf are not just cause for a group label.
         Were this not the case, then I could reason-
         ably claim that all homosexuals are as irra-
         tional and ignorant as the members of your                                                                                                                        1                                   41--                              -. OM!^
         organization. Fortunately, I was not brain-
         washed into this pattern of thinking. The only
         people allowing the past to live on are the
         people claiming to work towards a better                                      -                                                                            -I--

      best record that season. The league was still called the American Pro-
      fessional Football Association. The first NFL championship game
      was played in 1932 in Chicago. The Bears beat the Portsmouth
      (Ohio) Spartans 9-0. The game was supposed to be played in
      Wrigley Field, but was moved to an improvised 80-yard dirt field in
      Chicago Stadium because of a snowstorm and the bitter cold, making
      the game the first indoor title as well."

    The women's tennis team played
Wellesley College on Tuesday in
their second - New            England
Women's Eight Conference match
this season. The Engineers emerged
victorious with an exciting yet dom-
inating win of 6-3 to stay undefeat-
ed in NEW-8 matches.
    The key to MIT's success was
teamwork, as they captured all three
doubles matches in aggressive yet
poised style.
    At first doubles, the team of Carol
Matsuzaki '95 and Miranda Fan '95
had an extremely tight match but
they upped their intensity notch and
took the tiebreaker with conviction,
claiming victory 9-8 (7-3).
    Second doubles pair Seetha
Ramnath '96 and Sarah Kringer '97
showed exquisite teamwork as they
dominated throughout the match,
winning it 8-4. At third doubles
Lily Koo '97 and Bobby Kommi-
neni '97 played solid, aggressive
tennis to take an 8-5 win.
