Bexley story was appalling questionable

To the Editor:

The article in last Friday's Tech ["MIT seeks sorority housing," Sept. 20] tries to deal with two important issues -- the future of the Alpha Phi sorority on campus and the quality of life at Bexley Hall. These two subjects are linked only superficially and are worth treating separately. Because two disparate topics were forced into one vehicle, the article is a monument of confusion.

In addition, the writing style of the article would never pass the writing requirement! The chopped quotes from the interview with Dean Sherwood lose all continuity of thought. Many are so obviously taken out of context, that one might well become suspicious of the writers' intentions. I was appalled.
