An attack on fraternity bias at Bowdoin College here was made at the 150th commencement exercises of the school this week-end. The attack was made by a member of the graduating class, G. Curtis Webber 2nd., son of a Mains Superior Court Justice.
Speaking to an audience which included Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson and British Ambassador Roger Makins, Mr. Webber called upon the college to set a time limit, of perhaps three years, after which the fraternities would have to end all bias. Mr. Webber charged that the college is failing in its “responsibility to its students and to the community as long as discrimination is condoned within the ivied walls.”
