Transcript "The last thing either side wanted was to make the whole thing a black-white conflict." Cindy Brannon Secretary Panhellenic Council Daily Cougar 112 Issues On Dec. 2, 1975, the Panhellenic Council announced its decision to extend full membership to UH's four black sororities, thus unceremoniously ending a campus-wide controversy that had aroused more student debate than any other issue in recent UH history. Panhellenic's announcement reversed an earlier decision by the council to move its organization off campus rather than comply with an Organizations Board ruling to admit Alpha Kappa Alpha, Zeta Phi Beta, Delta Sigma Theta and Sigma Gamma Rho into full membership by Dec. 3. In Oct. the four sororities had contested the official recognition of Panhellenic before the Organizations Board, claiming discrimination through membership restriction. Panhellenic argued that the operations of the black sororities differed from those of the white sororities to such an extent as to make a union unfeasible. The issue, interpreted by onlookers as a racial one, touched off a Daily Cougar letter-to-the-editor duel alternately attacking and defending Panhellenic and its stand. "After we sat down and reconsidered the facts," Gladys Trost, Panhellenic president said, "we thought that for the betterment of the Greek system it would be better to admit the black sororities." "I don't think our admission as full members will affect anybody adversely after we start working together," said Yolanda Lewis, president of AKA. Editor's Note: By March 31, the six white sororities had voted to return off campus, leaving Panhellenic with an all-black membership.
