DePauw University severed ties today with the Delta Zeta sorority after its national leaders summarily kicked out every woman who was overweight or a minority:

"We at DePauw do not like the way our students were treated," the president of the university, Robert G. Bottoms, said in a letter to the sorority, Delta Zeta. "We at DePauw believe that the values of our university and those of the national Delta Zeta sorority are incompatible."

One chapter down, 165 to go.
