∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000 3
CAMPUS SCENE ALBERTA We had a successful rush and have active sports teams, but much of our energy has been directed towards philanthropic events. We started the year by participating in the Run for Ronny, a charity run for the Ronald McDonald House organized by the ladies of Kappa Alpha Theta. One of our Associate Members, Dennis Goo, raised the second highest amount of money in the Greek community. We followed that event up by participating in a fund-raising and information campaign for the Lupus Society of Alberta. For Halloween, we went Trick or Treating with the Delta Gammas in support of UNICEF. Finally, along with the ladies from Kappa Alpha Theta, we held a clothing drive called “We Want Your Pants,” donating winter clothing for various homeless and women’s shelters in the city. All of these events solidified Delta Chi as one of the most respected and active chapters on campus.
ALABAMA We reopened the doors to Fall ’99 with plenty of enthusiasm and a hope of gaining quality men to rebuild the chapter. The recruitment effort was led by Delta Chi staff members Ryan Cassell, Brian Martin and Matt Hamill. These men were not all of the consultants sent, but these men were chosen to stay and aid the chapter in the rebuilding process. This effort produced five new men who were to undergo an intensified program and later be installed as brothers. Upon initiation elections were held a week and start recruitment. Since then, there have been six associates pinned. Besides gaining men, we have been working on house goals, projected philanthropies, so4 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000
cial events, alumni functions and fund-raising. Homecoming was a success and we are looking forward to spring rush. Although things are very difficult in the beginning, hard work, diligence and our bond will enable us to accomplish our sworn duties, projected goals, and the traditions of being a true Delta Chi. We would like to thank the Delta Chi for allowing us the opportunity to come back, and the consultants who instilled in us the ability to bring the chapter back on campus.
AMERICAN As our tenth year approaches, we have gained the respect of both the faculty and students. Numerous brothers have respectable positions on campus, and have gained influential leadership positions because of the hard work we have put in to better ourselves and the chapter. To start off on the academic side, we had the highest fraternity GPA on campus last year. This only proves the point that not only are we the most visible fraternity on campus, but we care about our studies also! Recently, Tom Volk won the campus community ser-
vice award which is given to one student every year by the faculty. Lead by Tom, the chapter is building its own house for Habitat for Humanity. In order to do this, we must raise $50,000—but we are well on our way! In addition, other areas that we are excelling and growing in are: our intramural football team is continuously the most fearsome squad at AU, destroying every team in its path. We are taking over Student Government with many brothers in the General Assembly, along with Tom Oswald as the current Sophomore Class President (and former Freshman Class President). Delta Chi alone has made AU’s Bender Arena contain the most loud and intimidating basketball fans in the CAA by our relentless vocal support and presence at basketball games. Numerous brothers have internships in the United States Federal Government, including Zev Hechtman, Tony Vacanti, Chris Sexton, Greg Carey, Dylan Tilley— to name a few in the Congress and Mike Parrish in the Department of Justice. Finally, and probably most importantly for us, our former
long time “BB”, Ted Schmitt received an award from the AU Greek community for being the most dedicated alumnus serving his chapter. This is a very competitive award, but no one came close to what Ted has done for us. Unfortunately, this was Ted’s last term as “BB,” and we had a celebration for the award and a going away party at the same time. Everyone at the American Chapter would like to take this opportunity to thank Ted publicly. We will always remember what he has done for us! To conclude, we are growing and leading in almost every area of the American University community. Through this leadership we move our fraternity forward, promoting Delta Chi’s ideals as we go. All is well with the American Chapter!
ARIZONA We recently initiated ten brothers into the Bond. In addition, we had a successful rush bring in 22 energetic associates. Our membership continues to soar t o w a rd t h e t r i p l e d i g i t s , currently resting at 85. We continue to be successful in the sports world, placing high in intramural and philan-

thropic sporting events. These include: first place in Kappa Kappa Gamma’s Hoops for Hope basketball tournament, a first place in the Men’s Intramural Football League, and a first place finish in Men’s Intramural Softball League. We would like to congratulate Micheil Jones for winning his third straight cross-country meet for the University. Delta Chi is cosponsoring a flag football kickoff tournament with Chi Omega this semester. It will involve over 15 fraternities and 10 sororities. All proceeds will benefit local Tucson charities. Our big philanthropic event took place in early December, when we formally hosted “Winterfest.” It is our philanthropic highlight where we raised money for charities and donate Christmas trees to needy families. The entire Greek community was involved with the donations, decorations and placement of the Christmas trees. Alumni relations are beginning to rejuvenate. Several alumni have expressed interest in the house and have made donations to help out. They are awaiting the arrival of Delta Chi’s newest alumni newsletter: The Alumnus. Homecoming has helped unite alumni with current actives to thus strengthen the Bond of Delta Chi. Delta Chi took home two impressive awards at the Greek Awards Banquet. Not only did we take home Honorable Mention for the “Dean of Student’s Award for Excellence in the Greek Community,” we walked away with the most respected award of the evening, “The University of Arizona Outstanding IFC Chapter award.” Both the awards were given for outstanding conduct, leadership, philanthropic work and academic achievement. At the banquet, University representatives had an abundance of praise for our chapter stating that Delta Chi is the model for the Greek community.

AUBURN We have been busy with several different activities this past quarter. It has been a while since we have had a campus scene so think I am going to try to catch up some. Last January we had our winter formal in New Orleans where we all had a great time. We were busy with our intramural teams, winning first place in Football, Swimming, Softball, Soccer, and clinching the Intramural All-Sports Trophy, we owe a lot of the organization behind the scenes to our Intramural Chairman, Joe Hatcher. We also have been busy with rush, with the largest pledge classes on Auburn’s campus for both winter & spring quarter. In the spring, we hosted our annual Kimball Classic Alumni Golf Tournament, at the Auburn Links. The winning four-man scramble team was Kevin DeLine and his ringers from the GA Tech Chapter. This past August we have started what we hope to be an overhaul of the chapter house, with plans to finish off the basement, construct a chapter room, remodel the dinning room, and re-carpet the house.
CENTRAL MISSOURI Over the Labor Day Weekend, we held a fund-raiser for D.A.R.E. of Johnson County where we collected $750 in donations from Central Missouri Speedway patrons. On October 8th we hosted the initiation for the new Lindenwood Colony with the assistance of the Northwest Missouri Chapter. Twentytwo men were initiated. Homecoming proved to be exciting once again. We paired with Sigma Kappa Sorority for the week’s activities and to build the float for the parade. Together we hosted a barbecue for alumni on Friday night with the largest turnout in recent years. Jason Butler was named as the first ever CMSU Homecoming King at the halftime ceremony of the football game. The weekend concluded with our annual semiformal dance on Saturday night. We continue to have a strong presence on campus this fall. Karl Gindel was selected as a 1999-00 CSMU cheerleader for football and basketball. Jason Hook, Concert board president, was instrumental in bringing the MTV Campus Invasion Tour to campus this fall. We have six members serving as Student Government senators with Jason Butler serving his second term as president. Trey Buckley
was elected president of the College Republicans. We have seen great improvement in both softball and football this fall. The softball team made the playoffs for the first time in recent years.
CONNECTICUT We have continued on with Habitat for Humanity and CPTV, while trying to find new ways to give back to the community. Our soccer, volleyball, and softball teams continue to dominate the fields, and this coming semester we are looking forward to winning the basketball championship again, and dominating the rest of the indoor sports. This past winter break brothers gathered at our house to renovate it. We repainted the entire inside of the house, and the living room was completely renovated. We are excited about the large incoming rush class that we are expecting and about our chances to win Greek week. In addition, we are looking forward to our second annual alumni picnic, which will be held near the end of the semester. There was also a joint event held last semester with the UMass Chapter, and we are hoping to continue with this new tradition. This semester also saw us taking more active roles all over campus including brothers writing for the ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000 5
school newspaper, being in the student government, and occupying management positions all over campus.
CORNELL Since last year we had a successful alumni reunion weekend during the summer, we have been working with our alumni on the future of our house, and have been very active on campus. This summer, alumni from all over the country and ranging in graduation years from 1928 to 1998 came to campus and joined many of the undergraduates at our house. “BB” Jerry Martins organized much of the event and orchestrated the preparation for the weekend. It was a good opportunity for many of the alumni to meet our newly initiated brothers and for others to share their experiences both at Cornell and as a brother in the bond. Also discussed at this meeting was the future of our house, which we have been speaking with alumni about continually this year. Within the next few years the Housing Corporation plans on restoring the house, which was completed in 1914. During re-

union weekend there was a beneficial discussion between undergraduates, our recent alumni, and the housing corporation about these restorations, which were simply preliminary drawings then. Since the reunion weekend, we have spoken to many other alumni about these restorations, including Mike Nadler, president of our Housing Corporation, and Dave Weber, also of the Housing Corporation. This year we have also been active at Cornell, participating in intramural football, soccer, and ultimate Frisbee. We start our hockey and basketball seasons soon and hope to claim the basketball championship that slipped away last year. Many of the brothers have also been participating in philanthropy events, such as a walk-a-thon for children’s blood disease and a canoe race for cancer.
DUQUESNE Fall rush brought us 8 associates, our second highest turnout since the founding class and the best on campus. Duquesne recently held its homecoming festivities, a part of which includes Greek
Carnival. We paired with Sigma Sigma Sigma and our script was a comedy entitled “The Worst Show Ever.” Ironically, we won “best comedy.” Also, Felice Fava won “best male vocal.” We held fall formal at Penn Scenic View, a small cabin resort in the woods of Seven Springs. Fraternity athletics are just getting started and we are currently in the midst of football season. Chad Gessler won the “Outstanding C Award” and legacy Andrew Wachter won the “Borelli Family Leadership Award.” Congratulations to them!
EMBRY-RIDDLE A pig roast ended summer and started the fall semester, and gave everyone high hopes for the upcoming year. But not everything has been going our way. With the first few weeks of the semester we had a close encounter with Hurricane Floyd. But never fear, the brothers of USF are here. That’s right; they gave us a call to have a hurricane party at their place, since there were mandatory evacuations up to right across the street from the house. Luckily, the storm breezed by only taking with it half of the Daytona Beach pier (as seen on TV). Greek Week turned into a nail biting, anything for a point, events won or lost by hundredths of seconds type of week. We fought from behind the whole week and never gave up as we gained on the leaders, but it is sad to report we didn’t make up enough. Not all is lost as throughout the week we raised hundreds of dollars for charity. We’ll get’em next year. Our Annual Halloween Bash was a huge success. It even attracted the interest of alumni from all over to make it back for this scary weekend of frights and horror at the house! The weekend of November 6th saw our Annual Founders
Dinner with our 1st Kimball Classic golf tournament. Remember to check out our website for pictures of Halloween and other up-to-date info.
FERRIS STATE We had a great rush class of 15 men, one of our biggest ever. Our ABT board, Bob Rudowski, president; Andy Ahonen, “BB”; Simon Lorec, treasurer; and Scot Drumm, housing, have really been putting in a lot of their time helping out. Our intramural football teams have big hopes to make it to finals. Many of our brothers are taking leadership roles in other campus organizations. The house is looking better and better as we continue to renovate it. This past Homecoming we had the first annual Delta Chi Pig Roast, we had a good turn out considering the weather. We also would like to thank the Western Michigan Chapter for inviting us to their Homecoming events, it really helped build better relations between the two chapters.
GEORGIA With our recent induction into IFC, we are growing both in strength and numbers. The brothers made a lasting impression on a great Associate Member class through our first participation in the campuswide formal rush program in August. This fall has already been a time of great involvement on campus by the brothers in many different aspects. Homecoming festivities were a success in late October, as several alumni visited the house. Along with this, the brothers won the annual Gamma Phi Beta Chili cook-off as part of Homecoming. Also, our intramural football team enjoyed a successful season, as did our indoor volleyball team. We have also worked hard on philanthropic events throughout campus and town, highlighted by our involvement in
Hobart Brothers at their all-campus BBQ. the Red Cross Blood Drive and the Fright for Sight Haunted House in October. The year is shaping up well, and Delta Chi is sure to continue having a strong presence here at Georgia.
HOBART We are currently looking into the redecorating of our parlor, thanks to a generous donation from some of our most esteemed alumni. We will be painting in the upcoming weeks and by February we will be putting on the finishing touches. As the largest fraternity on campus, we decided that this year we would focus on our relationship with the school’s social-scene, besides in the conventional party atmosphere. After serious deliberation we decided that our first event would be a nonalcoholic all campus BBQ. We had no idea how successful it would be and were pleased at the exceptionally large turnout. It was like the burgers never got on the grill, they were going so fast. Our second idea was an open-mic night, where students were given the forum to express their creative and artistic sides. The first one, occurring in mid-September, was reasonably large, then when Brendan Hall performed with his blue guitar, the Parlor filled to capacity and eager fans resorted to standing on the porch, listen-
ing through the window, as he sang. The second time, midOctober, was just as successful, if not more so, and we plan on holding at least one more before the Fall term is over. We have also been active in the community, raking leaves for the elderly, and organizing a blood drive to mention just a few of our services. It has been our job as the social backbone of the college to provide exciting and new endeavors for the brothers and students here, and we will forge on in new and inventive ways in the next millennium.
HUNTSVILLE We started out the fall by initiating five members and have nine men in our associate program. This is a great stride in improving the number of actives available to help in our philanthropic events, such as assisting the North Alabama Science Center. October 15th was an exciting day for our chapter as we celebrated Founders’ Day and our chapter’s 22nd anniversary. The evening was spent at the Huntsville Country Club where both salmon and a filet were served. A guest speaker from the North Alabama Science Center was present to thank those who had assisted the center and he gave a speech about the timeless values present in the Cornerstone. Our web site, deltachihsv.org has undergone renova-
tion thanks to Ian Kinner. The new site has updated information, emailing lists and a section that allows alumni the chance to update their information with the chapter. Finally we would like to thank our “BB” Andre Roques, for all the time and work he has invested in our chapter. He, along with the other Greek advisors has helped to improve the relations between the fraternities on campus, which allowed events such as interfraternity kickball.
IDAHO Through the hard work of the entire brotherhood, we welcomed 17 associates. In keeping with our long-standing tradition, 70 brothers and their dates took on the mighty Salmon River this past August. The 15th Annual “Paddle or Die” raft trip was a big success. This fall we worked with the Inland Northwest Blood Center to sponsor an on-campus blood drive. And Halloween this year brought brothers and local children together for some good old fashioned pumpkin carving. Then came the highlight of the semester, Homecoming. While we didn’t win the muchheralded living group competition, we were able to celebrate our 75th Anniversary. The weekend was fun filled and showed just how strong the Bond is at Idaho.
ILLINOIS An era has come to a close. On October 16, during Homecoming weekend, Raymond Borelli, ’58 was honored for his lifelong service to Delta Chi. He was presented with a glass plaque on behalf of the chapter at the roast in his honor. Borelli has been instrumental in the success of the Illinois Chapter for over 40 years. Borelli went from serving this chapter as president to ultimately serving as “AA” (international president) of Delta Chi. Other Illinois members who also served as “AA” were Charles M. Thompson (19351952), L. Orville Edlund (19561958) and David A. Gillespie (1966-1968). His two terms as “AA” from 1981-85 were truly one of the highlights of the Illinois Chapter since its inception in 1923. On behalf of all actives and alumni, Brother Borelli, we at the Illinois Chapter wish you a long and enjoyable retirement as you move to South Carolina. Thank you for your meaningful contributions and we are proud that you are in the bond.
ILLINOIS STATE We had our most successful fall rush in over five years with nine associates. We also moved into a new house and are making many steps in the right direction. Participation in mud volleyball gave our brothers a Saturday afternoon rolling in the mud. How did that electric fence feel Doug?
Illinois State Brothers show off the the results of their mud wrestling efforts.

Homecoming saw a turnout of well over 50 alumni. We recently attended the Peoria Rivermen College night with the women of Zeta Tau Alpha and had a great time. We participated in many philanthropies and experienced our best finish in Gamma Phi Beta’s Gammi Golf. We finished off the semester by getting the groundwork laid for our 2nd annual Delta Chi Krazy Karaoke which last year raised over $1,000 for the Baby Fold organization.
INDIANA Several new additions to the house have made life inside it a little easier. Hand dryers have been installed in all four of our bath rooms. Our cafeteria now has central air conditioning and the parking lot has expanded to compensate for our increasing number of brothers. Also, every room is wired for the ethernet. This provides us with the quickest connection to the internet and our own intranet. We were fortunate to gain 30 associates from fall rush. Homecoming was the second week of October. We paired with Kappa Delta and hosted several band parties during the big weekend. We paired with neighboring Zeta Tau Alpha for a three night Haunted House.
Months of preparation paid off. Thanks to a lot of hard work, more than $1,500 was donated to the Bloomington Boys and Girls Club. Thanks to the generous donation of a brother’s family, we now have several used computers. We are refurbishing them for our study/computer room. Our former game room is being remodeled. Funded in part by alumni donations, more than $11,000 worth of renovations are near complete. The new additions to the 15 x 35 foot room include new walls, lighting, a wood floor, big screen TV and lighted trophy case. The glass case will proudly display our eight Little 500 trophies.
IOWA The semester brought new carpet and some furniture thanks to a successful parent auction last spring as well as some alumni donations. We had a good rush and are expecting more good members in the spring. Delta Chi Mud Volleyball was once again a success, raising over $1,000 in the three-day tournament. The Alumni Brickyard officially opened just in time for Homecoming and the next order of bricks is waiting to be filled. We enjoyed a great fall formal in Chicago in November. Please visit our website at www.uiowa.edu/~deltachi.
KANSAS This year we have three brothers who sit on the new IFC Executive Board holding the positions of President, Vice President of Public Relations, and Vice President of Community Service and Philanthropy. Our Fall Dad’s Day event was a success. We had a turn out of approximately 150 fathers and sons to watch the Kansas football team upset Missouri. Last, our renovation is nearing completion and should be finished by the start of the Fall.
KANSAS CITY In October we brought nine men into our Bond. This is one of the biggest associate classes we’ve had in awhile, but that’s not what made it special. The most remarkable part about the weekend was the fact that the ritual was performed entirely in two languages. Andre dos Santos from Brazil was initiated. And although he speaks semi-fluent English, the ritual was translated by current “F” Rodrigo de Oliveira. It was definitely a first for all those in the room. In addition, prior to starting the last day of activities, with the help of our “BB” John Hess, we had a REAL fraternity dinner. Some may not think this is a big deal because you share meals all the time in your din-

ing halls, but for a small house that can’t have everyone gather in one room and eat a meal together, it was really kind of special. It’s those kind of things that really enhance the brotherhood .
KANSAS STATE Summer rush brought us 21 AMs. This Fall, we had our most successful Homecoming to date, participating with Chi Omega and FIJI. After a week of events, we placed third overall. It was a great week, and we made some new friends with the other two chapters. We held our Annual Founder ’s Day Banquet October 9, which again was a success. At the banquet, we presented the various awards that we received from the Scoop Jackson Leadership Conference this past summer, including the Meritorious Service Award, presented to Jan Rayl, and the Outstanding “BB” Award, presented to Dr. Alan Brightman. Our Chapter ’s Alumnus of the Year Award was presented t o To m H u n t e r , w h o s e many years of dedicated service have helped us be where we are today. We held a function with Kappa Delta, the latest addition to the Greek community here. The Kappa Deltas have made an impressive showing their first year back to campus, and we were happy to have had the opportunity to welcome them into the community. Our intramural program continues to improve. We made it to the second round of playoffs in football, and we’re currently in the playoffs for volleyball. Overall, we’re ranked in the top ten within the Greek division. We continue to stress the importance of academics, and look forward to matching or improving upon last year’s record of six 4.0s. With our successes this Fall, next semester promises to be equally exciting.
KETTERING—B We started this term with our first time victory ever in Greek week activities. Our name will be the first one on a newly created traveling trophy for Greek Week winners. Retreat this term fell on Halloween, which is about a third of the way through our school term. So it gave us a good chance to reflect on the school term so far and to prepare for the rest of the term. But, mostly it was a get away from the rigors of school for a few days and to form bonds with brothers you normally don’t hang out with. Over the summer we elected new housing corp. officers. Talks have started to slow down on purchasing our current house, because of discrepancy in the closing price between the owner and housing horp. But hopefully our new housing corp. can hash out the problems.
LONG BEACH Our summer focus was our annual “Young Scholars Award” presented to incoming freshmen. This was a summer long event which began with an alumni fund-raising dinner. The Summer Fiesta, as the dinner was called, was a great success. Thanks to all the alumni that attended and a special thanks to Mark Norell who made the trip from New York to attend. The proceeds raised at the dinner helped us present one young gentleman with a $1000 grand prize award and five others with $200 book scholarships. Last spring we retained our ranking of 2nd among fraternities in grade-point average. We recently paired up with the ladies of Alpha Phi to win Greek Week for the second year in a row. Our first annual philanthropy, “Deltiki” was a great success. Deltiki consisted of various aquatic competitions between our sororities. All proceeds will benefit the Boy Scouts of America. We are
also very proud of Robert Garcia, our current “A”, which has recently acquired the position of Administrator, one of four executive officers of the student body. Finally please take the time to check out our newly remodeled web page located at http:// www.csulb.edu/~deltachi.
LOUISIANA TECH Crawfish Boil was a great success again this year with plenty of food and fun for everyone. We also had our first annual Active vs. Alumni softball game. Some brothers from the Stephen F. Austin Colony came to enjoy the festivities with us. We participated once again in the Kappa Delta Shamrock Project softball tournament to help prevent child abuse. Grades for the chapter in the spring were very high as well. A canoe/camping trip was made toward the end of the school year on the Okatoma River in Mississippi. We had a nice turnout and it was a great way to end the school year for those who were leaving for the summer. Another is planned in August to get everyone together before rush in the fall. Summer has been going well for us. We’ve held rush events in New Orleans and in Shreveport for incoming freshmen. Thanks to the alumni who helped us out with these affairs. Some minor work has been going on to the house, with some bigger plans for the end of summer. We are also planning some road trips to visit other chapters in the fall.
MASSACHUSETTS October 2nd saw us celebrating our 30th anniversary at Homecoming. We had our best turnout ever as both brothers young and old returned to the house to share in the bond. Everyone had a great time enjoying a wonderful New England autumn day. We would like to extend our congratulations to Adam DeCruz who was elected IFC
Montevallo Brothers at Bid Night. president and named Greek Man of the Year. Adam will also be working hard as he guides our seven associate members as the AMC. Our intramural teams have been tops in the school. Lead by league MVP Brian Myers, the football team remains undefeated after pulling out a close one over rival SAM. The soccer team is seeded second heading into the playoffs and looking to avenge its only loss. Looking forward into the semester, we plan on continuing our work at the local soup kitchen, participating in the big brother big sister bowl-a-thon, and working to improve the overall quality of our chapter.
haunted house for over 100 children in the Oxford community. In sports as we placed in the top ten out of twenty-seven fraternities for the third straight year. We won the sand volleyball championship and are expected to do well in broomball and flag football. We also have future plans for remodeling the house. We have already started restoring our chapter room and have plans to refurnish it. In addition, a $25,000 renovation is in the planning stage for our kitchen. Also, we are excited to be preparing for the millennium by connecting our house to the University’s campuswide computer network beginning second semester.
MIAMI With an emphasis on community service and philanthropy, we have put forth many hours helping others. Along with one other fraternity and two sororities we hosted Miami University’s first fourway philanthropy event. “Bombardment” a dodge ball tournament, raised $3,200 for the nation’s first Greek Habitat for Humanity project. Also, we have paid monthly visits to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital to spend time playing and talking to the patients. In addition, members of our chapter have organized a communitywide Adopt-A-Block program where various sororities and fraternities meet bi-weekly to clean their adopted block. Most recently, we put together a
MICHIGAN We have had a great start to the new school year. Mudhillun Muqaribu has worked to organize a campus wide canned food drive to benefit the needy during the upcoming holiday season. Delta Chi has contacted many other student organizations on campus to help with the event. We also had a successful Homecoming. Many alumni attended and shared their Delta Chi memories with current members of the chapter. Our chapter would like to thank everyone who participated in the event.
MICHIGAN STATE Last semester required many adjustments due to the ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000 9
First Annual Northern Arizona Alumni Golf Tournament. inception of new rules by the IFC prohibiting parties to be held in chapter houses. The effects of this rule have been felt throughout the Greek system but we didn’t let it get us down. Our parties are now held at local clubs, which keeps our house much cleaner. The house morale is at an all-time high. We had several brotherhood events such as paint ball, worley ball, softball Sunday and Tiger games. Our annual rafting trip was one to remember with everyone going to West Virginia. We had a great turnout for all our parties with sororities especially our Halloween Party with Delta Gamma. This party was held after our fall philanthropy event, organized by Matt Spence, Safe Halloween for Kids. We passed out candy to area children then let them take a trip through our “Haunted Dormer.” There was a magic show for the children and parents to top off the event. We are currently planning our spring philanthropy event, Concert for Cancer. Jeff VanWashenova reconstructed our website. The new site has an area where alumni can update their addresses. The site can be found through the national web page. We encourage all alumni to send their email address to Frickewi@pilot.msu.edu, so 10 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000
we can start sending email news. Our alumni events have been a big success. The alumni golf outing saw many alumni come back to compete for free passes and other prizes. Homecoming weekend brought alumni from New York, California and Florida to total over 50 alumni. We are glad that so many alumni came back to share their stories with us. We are having our second annual alumni dinner at the end of February, all alumni are welcome. Our sports teams are off to a great start. The football team, led by captains Steve Kim and Jason Mucha, is in the mist of winning the fraternity football championship. The basketball team has four returning starters, including captain Bryce Novak, and has its goals set on the championship. The Ultimate Frisbee team is looking stronger than ever with returning co-captains Matt Foster and Scott MacLachlan. We are looking forward to obtaining the All Sports Trophy, which just slipped out of reach last year.
MINNESOTA This fall, we have been keeping busy with many activities and projects. In September, our House Corporation and ABT announced a plan to raise $10,000 in alumni donations to renovate our study
room and update our computer hardware. So far, more than $1,000 has been raised to help us reach our goal. In other alumni-related news, we had a greater turnout of alumni compared to previous years for 1999 Homecoming festivities. Paired with Tri-Delta, Zeta Psi, and Pi Kappa Alpha, we participated in Lip Sync, Cheer, Volleyball, Soccer, and a house front competition as part of the festivities. With Homecoming behind us, future plans thus far include: an alumni golf tournament in the spring; a brotherhood trip to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada over Winter Break; and an exchange with Delta Gamma in November.
MISSISSIPPI STATE This fall we have accomplished several goals that have been in the plans for years. The most important one being a newly renovated chapter house. Alumni and actives are used to hearing talk about it, but now we are proud to say it is a reality. Shortly after moving into our new house, we welcomed 20 new associates into our family. Also during the first month of class, we were informed that we won seven “Outstanding Awards” from Delta Chi. The award we are most proud of is the Region VII Philanthropy Award for the most dollars raised. The month of October proved to be just as busy as Au-

gust and September. Homecoming took place, and was a huge success for alumni and actives. A new and enthusiastic spirit was achieved over Homecoming weekend concerning future expansion plans and how to achieve this goal. October also meant the coming our annual Haunted House. With the help of Zeta Tau Alpha, money was raised for the Mississippi Sheriff’s Boys’ and Girls’ Ranches. So far this semester has proved to be a huge success, and we look forward to continued success in the future.
MONTCLAIR This fall has been one of the best semesters of this fraternity’s history. We started the fall by pinning 14 Associates. They were a huge asset to our intramural and homecoming programs. During intramural football, our team fell just short of the championship. Following our intramural football season, we focused our attention on homecoming festivities. Rob DeFalco was the runner-up for Homecoming King and our parade float and dance ranked among the best in the show. After the parade, we held a dinner for members and alumni. Over one third of our alumni attended the dinner, including several brothers of our founding class. This was a great time for associate members, actives, and alumni to get acquainted and share stories. We have also completed our chapter ’s web page. If you would like to gain access to the Montclair Chapter web page, the address is: <http:// www.angelfire.com/nj2/ deltachi. This upcoming semester we will be pursing its 10th Greek Week Championship in 11 years. Also, intramural wiffleball, basketball, and volleyball are all just around the corner.
MONTEVALLO The fall began with a 24 man pledge class, which is the second largest class in school his-
tory and we won the rush title for the fifth consecutive year. In preparation for rush, the brothers managed to complete several projects to improve the appearance of the house. The kitchen was completely remodeled, the volleyball court was expanded, and a wooden privacy fence was constructed around the property. These additions dramatically improved the image of the house as well as serving as a way to bring brothers closer together through hard work. We also appreciate our alumni for all the support they have given us. For many years now, our chapter ’s alumni have paid alumni dues of $25/ year. The money is split between our housing fund and the cost for our annual alumni picnic. Through our alumni association and chapter advisor, we are able to keep strong ties with our alumni. They play a vital role in our chapter and we would like to thank them for all that they do.
new “BB” Efren Golden who provides us with much motivation and dedication.
NEW MEXICO STATE After acquiring our first house during the summer, we went on to make many accomplishments and memories over the course of the semester. The semester started off with a successful rush that netted 16 new members. In addition, we also initiated four fathers of active members into the bond during our alumni/ parents’ weekend in October. Other events in the month of October included joint homecoming participation with Delta Zeta, a Mardi Gras date
picking up garbage on the stretch of Interstate 25 that was adopted by Delta Chi. In December, we welcomed alumni and dates to our Fall Final, during which we bid farewell to graduating seniors.
NORTHERN ARIZONA We held our first Alumni Classic Golf tournament at Stone Creek Country Club in Scottsdale on July 17th. The tournament was a big success with over 30 alumni and 20 actives in attendance. Plans are already in the works for the next one which will be held in May of 2000. Delta Chi had the biggest and best tailgating at this year’s Homecoming game.

NEW HAVEN We have been going through a rebuilding stage as we have had 23 men graduate in the last year. Growth and success are in the air as we have taken great leaps in this process. This fall has seen the largest associate member class in two years with twelve associates. We have set up a new Housing Corporation with the goal of a chapter house by the fall of 2000. The fall has also seen a new tradition come about; our first annual Founders’ Day Picnic with many alumni coming to share their memories with the brothers. We helped sponsor the annual “Haunted Hayride” in which the Mayor of West Haven gave his thanks for our work in the project, as well as the great deal of service the chapter does for the West Haven area. The chapter is the top organization in community, social work, and sponsor of events here on campus. We are also proud of our
party, and a Halloween social with Chi Omega. Later in the semester, we won our first intramural volleyball championship in Greek League. Social activity slowed in November and December, as members worked towards academic achievement that earned the AM class the highest New Member grades on campus, and the chapter a GPA above the All Greek average. During the semester, the chapter also committed itself to community service with its assistance in the local Water and Harvest festivals, which offered education and entertainment to local youth. In addition, the chapter did its part to keep Las Cruces beautiful by
With two tents, barbecue, beverages and a DJ we had the largest showing of our alumni from across the state. We took home a championship trophy from the all Greek Frat-at-Bat tournament. On October 17th we hosted a bowl-a-thon to benefit a little girl in our community who is in need of a liver transplant, totaling over 700 philanthropy hours, and over $2000. We also held a Charity Ball benefiting the same cause in November. We hosted the White Carnation Ball the weekend of October 22nd in Laughlin, Nevada at the Flamingo Hilton. With over 80 couples in attendance this year’s formal was one of our best. We would like to thank Steve Jackson ’87, for his sup∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000 11

NORTHERN ILLINOIS We recently celebrated our 10th anniversary with a reunion banquet attended by many of our alumni and undergraduates. Our annual alumni golf outing and a parents day were also part of the festivities. Over the summer we had major renovations take place in our chapter room. The improvements include new floor tile, windows, walls, and a new ceiling which is currently under construction. For Homecoming we participated in the events of the week with Sigma Kappa, and were proud to have one of our members on court. We also won the volleyball portion of homecoming week. This year we will again be holding our annual golf outing. The outing will be part of an alumni appreciation weekend, which at the time of this submission is being worked on.
NORTHWESTERN During New Student Week, we took 75 brothers, alumni, and freshmen to Wrigley Field to watch the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers in extra innings. In the second annual Earthball tournament, we, along with Delta Zeta, raised over $1700 for the World Wildlife Fund. At our recent Homecoming, Delta Chi shined brightly in one of the greatest weekends 12 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000
in its history. In its first attempt in the float competition, we placed second in the Homecoming Parade. Working with Delta Sigma Theta, the brothers constructed a suave James Bond float. That same evening, the brothers reveled in Delta Chi glory as Scott Curcio ’00 was honored as Northwestern’s Homecoming King.
OHIO STATE To recap the year we won our 9th consecutive Homecoming trophy. Along with our homecoming victory we won Delta Gamma’s philanthropy Anchor Splash, were named the largest fraternity on campus and have several brothers that hold positions on IFC, including president and vice president of judicial affairs. We also had great success in the public relations department. As the chapter hosted a number of formal dinners for Ohio State faculty and staff. Attendants included the university president, vice president, and athletic director. The dinners had a great impact in improving the relations of the university and the Greek system for years to come. In honor of recently departed and former housing corp. president James A Shealy ’49, a scholarship has been established so, for many years to come, his name and memory will live on.
fraternity house but not all is grim for Delta Chi at OSU. Recently, we initiated three new members and the chapter still has 18 paid members going strong. “This isn’t the end of us, said “A” Zac Watson. “This experience will only make us stronger, and in the long run we will be fine.” Alumni can contact Watson at (405) 7434997; “E” Fred Minnick at (405) 377-3008; Ryan Domnick (405) 743-4759.
OREGON STATE Delta Chi has gone from having one of the worst GPAs on campus to being in the top 10 out of 23. One of the reasons for our improvement is our new scholarship. The “Rosenkrans Scholarship” allows us to give away up to $40,000/year to members and associate members. We have members as president and vice president of the Winter Recreation Club and treasurer of the Mountaineering Club. Ted Deveraux ’00 is the new IFC vice president of campus relations. We had our annual Homecoming barbeque with a large turnout of alumni. We also participated in Adopt-a-Highway as part of our philanthropy.
OSHKOSH The fall began on a high note, when the chapter was recognized for having the most improved GPA. We have six associates and a number of brothers in the running for the most valuable new initiate award.
Our Founders’ Day celebration was a big success and competing with the sisters of Phi Mu, we were able to capture three first places in the Homecoming games. We raised close to $1500 for the Boy’s and Girl’s Club at our annual aerobethon, and are looking forward to helping with the Special Olympics later in the semester.
PURDUE We started the year out strong with 43 new associates, creating the largest class on campus. Our annual philanthropy, Ride for Life, was a big success, raising over $1,300 for breast cancer research. At Homecoming, many alumni visited us and we treated them to a pig roast before the big game. During the game, Tom Wardrip, our Homecoming King candidate helped us place in the top 5 for the second year in a row. Kyle Klimek, our Technology Chair, is currently designing our new web page, and creating a database of alumni so that we can spread news faster through email. For the first time in five years, we were paired for football games with a sorority. We have had several sorority functions, including a spontaneous function entitled Studio 54. We had our fall barn dance in rural Indiana, and everyone attending had a great time. We have had several improvements to our house including a poker room, high-speed computer network and a sports en-

RADFORD Thad Herron and Dave Mitchell were nominated to the Student Government presidential cabinet, and John Ngau was elected as Senior Class president. John Rainbolt was elected to the public relations chair for IFC, giving us another member on the IFC executive board. Rush chairman, Tripp Bartholomew did an outstanding job as we were able to pin more men than any other fraternity on campus. Our associates recently participated in the Delta Zeta “Pledge Battles,” a field day to raise money for their philanthropy. We placed first in tugof-war, second in the egg toss, and second in the three-legged race to place second overall. We also placed first in “The Highlander Challenge” contest and placed second in the spirit contest, both held Homecoming weekend. Homecoming this year marked our fifth year anniversary. We had more alumni return this year than ever. A new plaque was purchased due to the overwhelming support of our alumni.
ROWAN We started off the year with a great turnout for our chapter retreat where we set goals for the year. Two of those goals, home improvement and stronger recruitment, have already been met. The house looks better than ever and we’ve pinned nine associates, the most of any fraternity on campus. Building upon our strong leadership, Brian Flanagan and Matte Johnson are two of five founders of the Order of Omega Greek Honor Society. Recently, our alumni-active softball game proved to be an-
other success, with 15-20 alumni in attendance. We hosted the 2nd annual Delta Chi Halloween Party prior to Homecoming weekend. The brothers had a strong performance at Homecoming.
SOUTH FLORIDA COLONY We have had many exciting events, visitors, and happenings. Brothers who stayed in town spent the summer manning a booth in the Freshmen Orientation Showcase of Student Activities. We held many Pre-Rush-Rush events last summer, from Bar-B-Q’s to hanging out at the local Pool Hall. Having back to back hurricanes made rush week an interesting experience. At IFC Bid House we had eleven accepted bids. Brothers and associates alike gathered all season to watch our intramural flag football team do their best. Our participation in this and a few other intramural events have us currently in the number six position. James Perigo planned our first social event this semester, a USF Bulls tailgate party with the sisters of Alpha Omicron Pi. We have tailgated and cheered on the Bulls at every home game. With the Tampa Bay Bucs here in town, Jacub Kowalczyk, our fund-raising chair, has planned many events. It’s actually quite fun to man a 12-person concession stand with 18 brothers. In October we had our second quarterly Adopt-A-Road clean up. We teamed up with Alpha Delta Pi, and Phi Delta Theta for the best Homecoming team ever. We hosted our Leadership Consultant, Brian Martin. We had the fortune of being able to have him out at our valiant flag-football playoff attempt. We really enjoyed having him, and hope that he was half as impressed with us as we were with him. On October 13, we had our second Founders’ Day Celebration. We all shared a special night
at the Buckhorn Country Club with our brothers, alumni, friends, and dates.
SOUTHEAST MISSOURI It has been a busy year as our fall rush brought in three associates with two initiated into the bond in November. We also have a winter class consisting of about seven men which we will be initiating in February. Looking to the spring rush we are going to bring in around seven more men. We have participated in several sorority events such as Sigma shoot-out, and Kickin’ it with ADPi’s, Frats at bat spon-
Shigematsu, as he helped us brainstorm for the upcoming year. This proceeded right into recruitment as we pinned 13 guys. These associate members have been a tremendous help in our interfraternity athletic tournament called, Ironman, in which we have played football, golf and made the playoffs in volleyball. We have also been active in sorority philanthropies such as: Delta Gamma’s Anchor Splash, Pi Phi’s Arrowspike, Kappa Kappa Gamma’s Green golf tournament, Alpha Phi’s Basketball tournament, and we will participate in many more

Our homecoming this year went well with one of the biggest turnouts of alumni in several years and we were excited when our chapter was invited to the Lindenwood Colony to initiate several men into the brotherhood. Also, looking at the spring semester we are sponsoring our annual philanthropy event called Delta Chi Esta. All in all our chapter seems to be moving in the right direction for growth and development.
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA The year started off with a brotherhood retreat in the local mountains near Lake Gregory where we were joined by alumnus and Delta Chi Director of Programming, Corey
including Alpha Chi Omega’s All American football tournament soon. This spring we also plan to participate in Songfest, which we won last year with our partner Kappa Kappa Gamma, and many other philanthropies and social events such as Formal. As for alumni events we had a tremendously successful Founder’s Day Dinner which many prominent alumni such as Rod Dedeaux attended. We also had a great Homecoming versus Arizona State, in which it was again a pleasure to see various alumni from around the country, such as Mark Fingerhut all the way from the Chicago area. There was lots of food and interaction between the alumni and the undergraduates, and it was also breathtaking to see how ac∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000 13
tive and connected the alumni were with the rest of the Trojan community. For all this participation, I want to thank all of our alumni and invite you to come anytime to visit our chapter. We would also like to announce that we have just recently repainted and fixed the exterior of our house. We also were able to buy new couches and redo our pool table. (Now all we need to do is fix up the kitchen so we can get a cook.) If you are interested in more information please visit our web page at (http://wwwscf.usc.edu/~deltachi/) or drop by anytime.
SOUTHWEST TEXAS Rob Dahse has recently been elected as our new ABT president. We would like to congratulate him for his continued efforts and leadership as a brother. We thank our alumni once again for keeping our volleyball court in playing condition with their financial support. We would also like to extend our thanks to our alumni for attending our Fall Formal. This year our Fall Formal was a great success, partly due to its location in Austin with a beautiful view overlooking Lake Travis. We have continued with our volunteer program at the Willie Mae Mitchell Center where we tutor, play games, and bond with underprivileged children. With great effort from all of our brothers, we have continued our commu-
nity service by picking up litter in Adopt-a-Highway program. We were fortunate to place third overall during Homecoming related events. As a result it has sparked a fire in all of us, and we are looking forward to next year when we plan to lead our university in spirit. We congratulate our intramural flag football team for making it to the playoffs. This has excited everyone and we can’t wait to show off our talent in future winter and spring sports (baseball, softball, soccer). What started out as a simple road trip to visit our brothers in Tarleton has now become a new brotherhood tradition. This and other brotherhood events has helped us to maintain a healthy bond.
TARLETON Through spring rush we picked up 19 members and we recently took them on a retreat to Lake Brownwood and had a great time. We are also proud to report that we have two brothers on the IFC board. Eric Vann is the president of the IFC and Kyle Kiker, our current “A”, serves as secretary. In October we celebrated our 12th Homecoming weekend and had a fun filled weekend with alumni and family. We would like to thank all of our alumni who came down and look forward to their return. We also held our Family Weekend in September and enjoyed the Saturday activi-
ties with a barbecue, visiting and a Tarleton State football game later that evening. This semester our social calendar is keeping us busy with mixers with the sororities which included paint wars, a $5 prom and a can food drive for a local charitable group. This brings me to our philanthropy which is also keeping us busy with local charitable events including canned food drives for Project Hope, Habitat for Humanity, and adopt-a-school program. We have been participating in Greek League Football, in which we took second place. In September we had a great success with fundraisers including car washes, Rock the Night party, and our Disco Bash. We have also been working hard to make several improvements to our house by filling in our garage to make another room and repainting the interior of the house. The improvements to our house have been a focus and goal of all our members and continue to be worked on everyday.
TEXAS This fall we held our annual Parents/Alumni Weekend fund-raiser, and it was our most successful in recent history. On October 2, families and alumni enjoyed an open house and barbecue, during which there was an awards ceremony. Following the festivities was the yearly Parents/ Alumni football game. Members and alumni are enjoying plenty of social activi-
ties including barbecues on Fridays and before football games. In October, we held our Last Night in Pompeii party. It had a great turnout and was a blast for all those who attended. For the first time, the chapter holds three positions in the IFC. Jack Callahan is President, Alan Alexander holds the Risk Management chair, and Mark Tlapak is in charge of community service. Our ABT is meeting regularly to discuss current issues and the future of the chapter. The alumni have become very involved with fund-raising and other efforts for a new house. The current house has received numerous improvements as well, including landscape work and new paint.
TEXAS A & M This fall, we held our Tenth Annual Powder Puff Classic. Nine sororities competed for the title with Chi Omega being crowned this year’s champion. We raised over $1000 for the Brazos Valley Deaf Council, which provides free and reduced price equipment for the hearing impaired. Our Philanthropy Chairman, Nathan Muzos did a great job putting the event together. We had another successful Alumni Weekend on October 16. Arnie Jiminez was honored with the Roger Glick Alumni Award for his service to the chapter. Jeff Hilliard and Robin Reese were given the undergraduate Outstanding Service Award for 1999. “A” John Simon received the Officer of the Year Award. We are experiencing a huge increase in alumni support and thank all those alumni for their much appreciated time and service.
TROY STATE UNLV brothers and associates show their school spirit at a fall football game. Oops, the “Chi” goes before the “Delta”! 14 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000
Here at Troy, we began our first year on the semester system, meaning we have had to go through a lot of adjustment. Fortunately, we have managed to do fine in a year when Greek numbers are down on campus. Our numbers remained con-
stant with the addition of ten associates. They have been involved on campus taking top finishes in events during Homecoming and sorority philanthropies. They even coordinated a fund-raiser where they auctioned themselves off to perform chores and various jobs for the highest bidders. As for the brotherhood, we have been very busy, and several of us have earned some noteworthy accomplishments. One accolade worth mentioning is the election of Jimmy Stewart to the Delta Chi Fraternity’s Ritual Committee, in which he serves as one of the undergraduate members. Another honor took place on September 17th, when a group of us traveled to Tuscaloosa to perform Ritual, initiating eight men into the Alabama Chapter. Scott Grosse, who transferred to Alabama, is currently serving as “A” of the Alabama Chapter and has played a major role in the reestablishment of Delta Chi at Alabama. Our brothers have been involved in many different service projects that have benefited our school and community, and have resulted in very good publicity for Delta Chi and the Greek system as a whole. We would also like to recognize one of our distinguished alumni, Ralph Ford, who has recently signed an exclusive worldwide contract for publishing music with Warner Brothers.
UNLV We experienced tremendous success this fall. It all started when Mitch Brunscheen ’02 captured the intramural tennis title in straight sets over an opponent from Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Then the success carried over to the indoor soccer field where standouts Justin Durr ’01 and Brian Weens ’01 led the team to an impressive 4-1 win in the title game. Homecoming came and went as we once again came through in style. With the help of the sisters of Delta
Zeta and Delta Sigma Theta, we won best float design and not only became closer with these sororities, but continued to bridge the gap between traditionally “white” fraternities, and “black” sororities. Other events this semester included “Take Back the Night”, an event where over 40 brothers showed up to promote stopping domestic violence and rape; Sorority serenades and a Halloween canned food drive with the brothers of Omega Psi Phi where we collected over 500 pounds of food for the homeless; our Bachelor Auction and Founders’ Day 1999 was one for the ages. Our associate member class, Epsilon, has been nothing short of great, and we are thoroughly excited to extend brotherhood to them and can’t wait for them to add even more diversity, character, and leadership to the chapter.
VIRGINIA TECH This fall we were paired with Delta Gamma for a week of homecoming events that cumulated with Justin Brod representing us on the Homecoming Court. We were very happy to see so many of our alumni back in town for our Fall Alumni Weekend, which included a cookout and a football tailgate. We participated in many philanthropy events including our annual Halloween Haunted House held for local elementary school children and Montgomery County Christmas Store. Our Parents’ Weekend was a big success, with many parents seeing for themselves how much the fraternity has to offer. That weekend we rented a big screen television to watch the Virginia Tech game, roasted a pig, and held Sunday morning brunch. Finally, ten associates are working hard under the direction of our Associate Member Board.
WASHINGTON STATE We are beginning our second full school year in our
Western Michigan new initiates and brothers. newly constructed home, which was purely funded by our gracious alumni. They spent many years working on this project which has come true for them. We moved into our new home in August of ’98. We currently have just 23 initiated members and 24 associates thanks to the hard work and dedication of our two Rush Chairmen Kris Gerhardt and Joe Roberts. Academically we are continually improving. After tabulating our grades from the ’98-’99 school year we made a huge jump from No. 15 to No. 8 with a 2.88 GPA out of 26 fraternities. In between school and studying we do find time to be involved on campus. We have a few members who are involved with our Interfraternity council, homecoming committees and Greek games committees, to name a few. We are also heavily involved in intramural sports at WSU. Our fall soccer team won the championship in a 54 overtime win. Our softball, basketball, flag football and indoor soccer teams have all had successful seasons with each team going deep into their respective playoffs. This past “Dad’s Weekend” our parents raised over $3400 dollars in our annual auction, which beat last year ’s Mom’s weekend of
about $1,700. The great support that we get from our parents has been a huge help in continuing to keep our new home in good condition, and provide the little things we need from day-to-day. We are definitely looking forward to this Spring’s “Mom’s Weekend” where the ladies definitely have their work cut out for them. The two most important events we having coming up this spring will be our annual “White Carnation Formal,” and we have been selected to host the Regional Conference which will be the first weekend of March. We are also going to be involved in two philanthropies this school year. We will host a blood drive which supports the American Red Cross and a sorority 5-on-5 basketball tournament which supports the National Arthritis Foundation.
WEST CHESTER On September 23rd we pinned 18 associates. We are the largest fraternity on campus with 47 brothers; however we believe in quality not quantity, and we seem to be getting both. We are also excelling in the scholarship aspect of our chapter. We have adopted a new scholarship program which has been taken and utilized by our IFC. As a result, we have the number one grade ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000 15
point average among fraternities. This has been one of our goals for years, and we are proud of this honor. In intramurals we are currently ranked second among fraternities for the IFC cup and have a very good chance of bringing it home. Last semester we came in second place in soccer and basketball and fourth place in roller hockey. This has continued into this semester with our current standing in soccer, football, and hockey being second, first, and second respectively. We also celebrated our five year anniversary on November 6, 1999 with a banquet for brothers and alumni. A great time was had by all with 120 brothers and dates attending.
WESTERN CAROLINA Our chapter has been doing great and we recently had a large turnout for our alumni weekend. As far as the campus activities go, we are participating in all of
them. We had a strong showing to all the events, and we are really getting to be known on campus. We also have been trying to improve our relations with other fraternities and sororities on campus. We have also been extending ourselves to help organizations on campus.
WESTERN MICHIGAN After meeting with the ABT and Housing Corp. in August, our brothers started the new year with reborn enthusiasm and many fresh ideas. Fall rush was the most successful in the last five years with fourteen associates. After five busy and exciting weeks of pledging, all fourteen of them were initiated, doubling the size of our chapter for the second year in a row. James English ’89, Jim Sanford ’92 and David Oberdzinski ’99 were present at the ceremony to welcome our new brothers. We then hosted our ninth annual Powder Puff tourna-
ment where ten sorority teams battled for the most prestigious non-intramural sports trophy on campus. Our sports participation is a source of pride again this year. Not only did we successfully compete in all intramural sports, but we also participated and placed high in sporting events organized by the University and other organizations. Our involvement on campus and in the community was recognized by the IFC with a Chapter of the Month award. On October 23rd we welcomed over 50 of our alumni to the annual homecoming celebration. In conjunction with the ABT and Housing Corp., we kicked off the festivities with a formal meeting at a local restaurant where exciting new plans for building a brand new fraternity house were presented by Jeff Jones ’92 and Charlie Carter ’91. With continuous chapter growth and development we are looking at moving into
the new house within the next three years. ABT and Housing Corp. presidents Matt Spaulding ’92 and Jim Sanford ’92 presented reports on continuous chapter standing with Delta Chi and lead a fund-raising campaign to pay off our fast shrinking debt of over four thousand dollars. We were excited to share our fraternal experience with Jim Wright ’64, Jerry Spade ’61 and Jim Moore ’60. We appreciate their involvement with the chapter. We also would like to extend our gratitude to Bob Peterson ’58 who presented the chapter with some important memorabilia that he had saved and preserved for many years. It was a day filled with many shared memories for all involved and a day we will never forget. Credit for helping us finance this year ’s Homecoming should be given to the ABT and Housing Corp. and also all the alumni who have given donations.
Wayne State Delta Chi Alumni Reunion Front row: Ed Stell ’62 and Tom Kelly ’66, back row: Jack Vincent ’65, Bob Cain ’64, Don Kleckner, Jerry Patera ’64, Andy Jackson ’64, Don Beesley ’63 and Rick Rehn ’66. On October 16, 1999, 97 brothers and their wives met at the Nova Hilton outside Detroit, Michigan for a reunion. The group spanned pledge years from 1961 to 1973. The class of ’64 had 12 members in attendance. John Zoulas ’64 came the greatest distance from Seattle, WA. Some of the brothers toured some of the “old” favorite night spots and visited the house (now an apartment building). Dennis Stillwagon had old 16 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000
films converted to video and 100’s of old still pictures. Watching these great videotapes brought back many fond memories. Dancing and lots of reminiscing followed a great dinner. Some brothers had not seen each other in over 30 years. After a few minutes it was like old times. Everyone vowed to meet again in 2004. The goal will be to have even a larger turn out including brothers from the 50’s and late 70’s.

“The Wall” Revisited In the Fall/Winter issue of the Quarterly, we featured the research of George L. Hopkins IA ST ’61 on Delta Chi members listed on the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. In response to that feature, we received several responses. Some of those responses included names we had inadvertently left out of the first article. Included here are some quotes from those responses as well as a corrected listing. Dear Ray: Thanks from the bottom of my heart for the article on Delta Chi Members on “The Wall.” If you will send me the mailing or email address for Brother Hopkins, I would also like to personally thank him. I have such fond memories of my Iowa Delta Chi brother, “Brit” Podhajsky. His great sense of humor, the sparkle in his eye, his sincerity, and his patriotism will always be with me. It was one of my saddest days when I learned he had been killed. Each of the brothers listed undoubtedly touched their brothers as Brit touched me. Each future visit to The Wall will have new meaning for me having read this article. I should point out that Brit was an Air Force officer, not Army as listed in the article. As I recall, he flew C-130s. Brother Mike New with the Iowa Foundation could confirm that, I believe. Thanks again for the wonderful article and all of the work that went into it. This old Vietnam veteran sincerely appreciates it. In the Bond, Fred McLain, IA, ’66 Colonel, United States Army (Retired) Dear Brothers, Enclosed is my gift to the Delta Chi Educational Foundation. In the Fall/Winter 1999 edition of the Quarterly, I noted the article on page 20 about Delta Chi members on “The Wall.” An omission from the list is Earl Glenn Cobeil, Michigan State ’56, who was shot down over Vietnam and, I think, died in prison camp.

Ray, Are you wearing your Delta Chi Quarterly editor ’s hat? Re: The article “Delta Chi Memebrs on ‘The Wall’” by George L. Hopkins in the latest issue. Please add (Richard Edris). It was reported that he was killed by a random mortar attack in Saigon while walking through a park. Warm Regards, Ian E. M. Donovan, CDR, USN, Ret’d, Ohio State ’55 Hi Ray: Just finished the Fall/Winter ’99 Quarterly. The article titled, “Delta Chi Members on ‘The Wall’” really brought back memories for me. I remember saying “good-bye” to Mike Rasmusson as he was getting ready to go to Vietnam. I had only recently returned from my tour there, and wished him well. I was terribly saddened when I heard of his death, especially since he had only recently married before paying the ultimate price. Keep up the good work on the Quarterly, I always look forward to reading it. Bil Knoblauch, Sacramento ’68 Dear Brother Galbreth: I noticed the listing of 12 Delta Chi members on “The Wall” in our Fall/Winter ’99 Delta Chi Quarterly. Please include Earl Glenn Cobeil in a future issue. Glenn was my room and late late study mate at our Michigan State Chapter house. Tragically, Glenn died in the “Hanoi Hilton” in 1970; his remains were buried in Arlington National Cemetery after the war. I visited his grave last Memorial Day. Several

years ago I met his wife, who has remarried, and Glenn’s two children. I put up a plaque in his honor at the chapter house. A brave airman, LTC Cobeil was awarded posthumously the Silver Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Purple Heart. Fraternally, Myron E. Ranney, Michigan State ’56 Editor’s Note: While working on this article, I remembered that Robert P. LaBouy WA ’66 and past “AA” had done research on POWs and contacted Bob to see if we could include some information on our POWs. In my note to Bob I mentioned that we already knew of Congressman Sam Johnson SMU ’51. Johnson spent nearly seven years as a POW, three in solitary confinement. Dear Ray, In response to your questions, I was sorry to see that we hadn’t listed the name of Edward H. Johnson ORST ’54. While I have done some research on Ed Johnson, from all reports he was a true “hero” in every sense of the word, including riding his burning B-52 down in December ’72 enabling others to escape. While it was “felt” that he was a POW for some time, I suspect that wasn’t the case. Partial remains were returned in May, 1989 and they are interned at Arlington National Cemetery. I have visited the site and have some photos as well of his memorial. Another former POW was Mike Benge ORST ’57. While a civilian employee of AID, his is another of the many harrowing stories of captivity. I would love to know his current whereabouts, so I could interview him in person. I know (or at least believe) he is now retired and living in the CONUS and have seen him in a recent TV spot on the POWs. (Editor’s Note: Anyone knowing his address, please contact the Headquarters.) William M. Tschudy SMU ’58. Bill was a Naval aviator and shot down and imprisoned in ’65 and was flying one of the most famous of our Hanoi POWs, CDR Jeremiah Denton, when shot down over the North. He should be mentioned as he spent his toughest 7+ years in the University of Hanoi Graduate programs. Ray, I only wish I felt more of our brothers were interested in the real life stories of these men. I had hoped I would hear from someone, anyone, when they saw the notes of Alex Vraciu, DePauw ’41 (Editor’s Note: See “Where did we get such men?” in the Spring/Summer issue). It is almost spooky that both Johnson and Benge came from the same chapter in such a close time span. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to assist you. Fraternally, Bob LaBouy, Washington ’66 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2000 17
