After 25 years of use in Cambridge, Mass., the smoot has not replaced the foot or rivaled the meter, but it has not been forgotten either.

Smoot Jr., returning to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this weekend for his 25th reunion, it represents his 5-foot-6 body.

A UCLA fraternity, two of whose members drowned during a May outing at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, has been suspended indefinitely by its national board. The national board of directors for the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity said it was closing the UCLA chapter after an investigation into the Lake Mead incident.

Since 1991, membership at Bishai's UCLA fraternity, Alpha Tau Omega, has plummeted from 90 to 40 students, threatening to close the chapter. On a recent Thursday evening, "party night" for most Greek organizations, ATO's courtyard, once the scene of raging toga parties, lively mixers and alumni gatherings, was as quiet as a nursing home.

A fraternity has been suspended from campus activities at California State University, Northridge, after Los Angeles police arrested four members on suspicion of burglarizing two sorority houses, school officials said. Authorities said the fraternity members took trophies and plaques from as many as four sororities in hopes of using the loot to persuade the sororities to have parties with them.
