A troubled fraternity at the University of Maryland, College Park had its national charter revoked last week and its members were ordered to leave their house on Fraternity Row by Friday because of hazing and underage-drinking incidents. Members of the university's Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter were suspended from the fraternity after a member filed a complaint with the university's Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life that triggered an investigation into hazing allegations, the Diamondback student newspaper reported Friday.

I am forever grateful that my Kappa Alpha fraternity at Washington College didn't conduct childish hazing like Sigma Alpha Epsilon is accused of doing at Salisbury University ( "Legislators propose tougher penalties for hazing in wake of Salisbury University case," Jan. 13). Our pledges were assigned duties such as cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming rugs, painting steps, cutting grass and wiping down the windows of the fraternity house. These and other chores kept the house and grounds sparkling and made us look forward to becoming full-fledged members who could sit back and watch the next group of pledges do the work.

Certainly, few had ever buried a friend.Benjamin Wynne, 20, whose wake and funeral were held here yesterday, died Monday night after drinking enough to put him six times over Louisiana's legal limit for intoxication.

The chair of the University System of Maryland's education policy and student life committee said Tuesday that the committee would begin a review of all university policies on hazing, after a recent report of extreme hazing at Salisbury University that has lawmakers calling for tougher penalties. "Hazing is unlawful in Maryland," said chair Louise M. Gonzales at a committee meeting Tuesday. "There is no question that this board ... is opposed to anything unlawful. " Gonzales said that the university system does not have an umbrella hazing policy, but every college and university has its own that are detailed and all-encompassing.

Two state legislators and the University System of Maryland chancellor say they support tougher penalties for hazing after a recent report detailed an extreme case at a Salisbury University fraternity chapter. State Sen. Jamie Raskin said he will introduce a bill in this year's legislative session to increase the criminal fine for hazing from $500 to $5,000. He said he was shocked by a recent report from Bloomberg that examined the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter's alleged hazing, including paddle beatings, forced drinking and making pledges stand in trash cans full of ice water.
