      Miami Univ. reports second wild sorority incident

      OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - A second Miami University sorority has been linked to destructive, repulsive behavior at its spring formal - this one at a Cincinnati museum focused on the Underground Railroad.

      The Alpha Xi Delta sorority is facing a two-year suspension from the Ohio school because of its March 26 event at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Center officials described excessive drinking, smoking inside the museum, vomiting around the center, and trashing of the dance floor and bathrooms.

      The sorority is appealing the planned suspension.

      Miami University's Pi Beta Phi sorority has already been suspended for one year because of misconduct and damage at a local lakeside lodge.

      The school plans to review rules and policies for fraternities and sororities.
