Blazonry of the Delta Chi Coat of Arms “Quarterly, first and fourth, three martlets volant sable, 2 and 1, second and third gules, a battle ax bendwise crossing a scimitar blade pointing upward, saltirewise proper. Crest: On a wreath of the colors the badge of Delta Chi proper. Motto: LEGES.”
From The Past
Editor’s Note: This article is a reprint from the March 1930 Quarterly. L. G. Balfour was a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity and its 29th Grand Consul. He was the founder of the Balfour Company and president of the NIC in 1941. His interpretation of Delta Chi’s coat of arms is based on heraldic standards and reflects both our general compliance with those standards and his lack of knowledge of our secrets/terminology. His article also reflects that the more things seem to change, the more they stay the same. Dr. Francis W. Shepardson, president of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity, sounded the keynote of the trend of thought in progressive fraternity circles at the last Interfraternity Conference when he said, “We must get back to our altars.” This is a natural reaction to the situation we are facing today as a result of the modern type of fraternity house, patterned as it is along the lines of a social club. In the evolution of this building program to meet the ever-changing conditions of fraternity life the undergraduate fraternity man has lost many of the charming experiences which he enjoyed in the more intimate association with his fraternity brothers which the old house provided. And with this tendency toward the club life has been lost a little of that mystic something known as fraternity spirit. In the definite attempt to circumvent the disadvantage of modern conditions a greater emphasis is being placed upon the ritual, involving as it does the idealism sponsored by the fraternity as well as stressing a better acquaintance with the auxiliary symbols used in this work such as the fraternity badge, the pledge pin, the coat of arms, et cetera. 2 ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2003
In order to better understand the advantages which a more thorough knowledge of the armorial bearing of Delta Chi will give, we are going to relate something concerning the background of this important piece of insignia. We will show how it originated and why the idea was sponsored by the American college fraternities. We will also explain as fully as permissible the technical composition of the Delta Chi escutcheon itself, and finally compare it with the arms of several other fraternities of international membership. Heraldry developed with and out of a system of mediaeval military aristocracy which reached the highest point of its perfection near the end of the seventeenth century. The history of that time revolved about the feudal system which intimately touched every phase of life, including not only the religious and economic structure of society, but social life as well. Because of the inadequacy of governments, (the national concept had not met with the acceptance that we af-
ford it today) the lords of the manor were supreme in their domains. Each banded together his vassals, sometimes with those of other lords to do service for the kind, although more often each lord fought independently and as he willed. Under the lords or nobles were the knights, and these fighting men were considered the gentlemen of the times. Book knowledge was confined to the monasteries and culture was known only at the royal courts. The knights were the champions of right. They defended religion and went on long and ofttimes dangerous crusades to wrest the Holy Land from the Saracen. When not engaged in such campaigns, nor even in tournaments, they spent their time in diligently running to earth roving bands of outlaws which infested the country. The knights wore mail armor as a protection in combat and when thus encumbered lost much of their identity. In order to restore this lost identity and to distinguish friend from foe they decorated their shields with whatever devices their

minds might fancy. These devices formed the basis for the coat of arms design. Later, when the crown assumed the right to grant arms to worthy and loyal henchmen, the designing of this insignia was developed into more or less standard form or coat of armor. As the number of those eligible and worthy of the coveted honor of carrying armorial bearings grew, it became necessary to formulate definite rules for applying charges, tinctures, ordinaries, et cetera, in heraldic compositions so that order might be maintained in an ever increasing and complicated array of arms. It was true that many achievements were awkward and did not conform to the recognized standards of the day. On the continent the designing of armorial bearings never reached the classic stage that the heraldic succeeded in establishing in England, so we look to English heraldry for our inspiration and rules in designing this important insignia for the American college fraternity. Just as the system of heraldry was used to represent the stamp of culture and refinement in the past, so American college fraternities have availed themselves of its use to represent the courtesies and the stamp of gentlemanly conduct as exemplified in the idealism and rituals of their organization. The Greek letter fraternity system is older than our own federal government but its adaptation of heraldic de-
vices is comparatively a recent development. The arms of Beta Theta Pi were designed about 1869; those of Phi Gamma Delta in 1879; those of Delta Tau Delta in 1888 and Sigma Chi approved their armorial bearings in 1889. The Delta Chi coat of arms was designed in 1890, but altered several years later. In presenting any armorial bearings it is customary to make a drawing either in full color or, if the reproduction is to be made in monotone, to represent these colors by tricking. In tricking, the colors and metals used in the composition are clearly indicated by notation, or they are indicated by a standard dot and line system. The artwork is called the emblazonry and the accompany description is the blazonry. Before we can blazon the coat of arms of the Delta Chi Fraternity, it will be necessary to briefly explain some of the essential details concerning heraldic achievements. A coat of arms usually consists of a shield or escutcheon, above which is shown a helmet, draped in a mantling. Above the helmet is the crest consisting of the torse and some device representing the crest proper. Under the shield is usually placed a motto inscribed upon a ribbon. (See Figure 2). On the more formal arms, and especially those of the nobility, are shown supporters on either side of the shield, but in common with other college fraternities, the Delta Chi arms are abbreviated and consist only
of the crest, escutcheon, a tie uniting them, and a motto ribbon. The heraldic shield as shown in Figure 2 had certain definite areas or points which were named. 1, 2, and 3 constituted the chief portion of the shield-1, the dexter chief-2, middle chief, and 3, the sinister chief-dexter being the right hand side of the shield and sinister the left hand side of the shield. 4 is the honor point, 5 the fess point and 6 the natal point. 7, 8, and 9 represent respectively dexter base, middle base, and sinister base. The shield was divided into one of several recognized patterns by partition lines. The most noteworthy of these lines are listed to the right of Figure 2 and are: engriled, unde, wavy, indented, embattled, potente, invected, nebule, dancette, ragule, and dovetailed. The divisions of the shield or patterns formed by these partition lines were: per fess, or an equal division of the shield with a fess or horizontal line; per pale, by a pale or perpendicular line; per bend with a bend or an oblique line running from the dexter chief to the sinister base; per bend by a sinister bend or a line running from the sinister chief to the dexter base; per chevron by a chevron line and quarterly by a combination of the per fess and per pale lines. Beside the divisions with ten ordinaries or major charges which were applied to the shield, namely the chief, a pale, a bend, a bend sinister, a cross, a saltire cross, a chevron, a pile, and a quarter. In addi-
∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2003 3
tion to the ordinaries there were many charges consisting of flowers, both natural or proper and conventionalized; animals and parts of animals; birds, fish, implements of warfare and in fact the representation of anything which was of interest in mediaeval times. The several portions of the shield, the ordinaries and the charges were shown in color on the emblazonment. When shown in monotone the heraldic metals and colors were indicated as follows: argent-silver-without any notation; or gold by equal-spaced dots; gules-red-by equalspaced horizontal lines; azure – blue-by equal spaced vertical lines; sable-blackby solid areas, or more often by horizontal and vertical lines crossing at right angles; purpure-purple-by equal-spaced oblique lines running from the dexter base to sinister chief and vert-green – by equal-spaced oblique lines running from the dexter chief to the sinister base. Beside these colors and metals were furs and other devices. The division per pale is shown in figure “A”-per pale, argent, and or. In figure “B”-[per fess, gules, and azure. In figure “C”quarterly, sable, and argent. Figure “D”-per bend, purpure, and vert. Figure “E”-gules, a chief, argent. Figure “F”-quarterly, sable and azure. In figure “G”per chevron, sable and vert. Bearing in mind the methods of division as well as the various charges and coloration possible, we will blazon the arms of the Delta Chi Fraternity and explain the terminology employed. Blazonry of the Delta Chi Coat of Arms Quarterly, first and fourth, three martlets volant sable, 2 and 1, second and third gules, a battle ax bendwise crossing a scimitar blade pointing upward, saltirewise proper. Crest: On a wreath of the colors the badge of Delta Chi proper. Motto: LEGES. Inasmuch as the terms of heraldry are derived mainly from the old Norman French and are peculiar to heraldry just as the terminology of law, architecture, et cetera, are appropriate only to those professions, it is necessary to elaborate to some extent so that the blazonry may be more readily understood. As already mentioned, English heraldry is used as 4 ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2003
the source for the design of practically all the armorial bearings used in this country. However, the English were strongly influenced by the French due to the invasion under William the Conqueror. French, the language of the conquerors, became the polite language of the day and so it naturally followed that when arms were granted they could only be correctly described in the actual terms used by those in power and thus we account for the strong French influence in the blazon. This peculiar terminology is still followed. Quarterly: Quarterly indicates that the escutcheon has been divided into four equal parts by two lines-one horizontal or fesswise and the other vertical or palewise. The divisions so formed are numbered from left to right for clearness’ sake, 1 and 2 above and 3 and 4 below. Quartering in this fashion often
enhances the beauty of the design because it permits of a more flexible handling of the charges, giving emphasis by repetition in quarters 1 and 4 and 2 and 3. First and fourth denotes that the charges next mentioned appear in the first and fourth quarters of the shield. Or: Or is the heraldic term for gold. The fact that it is mentioned next in the blazonry indicates that gold is the basic color of the first and fourth quarters. Or is the color of the sun, of light, of ambition, and nobility of purpose. it constitutes a most appropriate background for the gold. Three Martlets Volant Sable: Three denotes the number of martlets shown. Martlets were peculiar heraldic birds, which invariably were shown without feet. Here they are depicted volant, or in flight, indicating that they represent three high or the principal ideals or aspi-
rations of the fraternity. They are colored sable, or black, denoting that as such they are secret, revealed only to the initiate. 2 and 1 is the heraldic way of expressing the fact that the first two ideals have a deeper significance than the third. Martlets are beautiful symbols typifying the three most revered and inspiring principles of the Delta Chi Fraternity. Emblazoned upon the golden background they suggest to the initiate the many opportunities which lie on every hand to exemplify the noble ideals which were revealed to him at the altar and which he has vowed to champion in his daily life. Second and third like first and fourth, indicates the two remaining portions of the field which have been tinctured. Gules-the heraldic word for red, the color of courage, of daring, of the strength to endure and to carry through any undertaking once begun. The fact that the second and third quarters are shown gules is symbolic of the courage with which they will strive to attain the full significance of their attributes in the face of opposition and ridicule. A Battle Ax: This implement of warfare was a favorite charge with the heralds. In actual practice it was used not only by the foot soldiers or yeomen in battle, but by the servants of those in authority whose duty it was to enforce the laws or edicts of the kind. In later days the battle ax bound with reeds was called a mace which is even to this day emblematic of law and order. The battle ax is shown Bendwise, or in oblique position, which permits it to be crossed with a Scimitar, the blade of which is pointing upward. These two implements form a Saltire Cross, similar to the letter “X”. Because of their position they undoubtedly allude to two principles of secondary importance. Proper means that the charges so described in tinctured in their true or natural colors. Crest: This is one of the most important parts of the entire armorial bearings. In fact, so important has the crest become that the word is frequently used to indicate the entire coat-of-arms while
in the case of Delta Chi it is merely that part which appears above the shield, including the torse. In the days of the Crusades all knights, when dressed in armor, were so similar in appearance that it was necessary for them to choose some character and attach it to their helmet in order that they might readily be distinguished from the enemy in battle. Especially was this true of the leaders. That very essential practice has resulted in creating the element of importance with which the actual crest is regarded. On a wreath of the Colors: This heraldic phrase refers to the torse or the crest wreath which, shown in profile, is represented by six divisions in a twisted link chain-like effect, composed of first, the color of the metal and second, the principal color in the escutcheon-the two colors alternating. We read in the old romances, in Mallory’s Morte d’Arthur and elsewhere, of valiant knights who in battle or tournament wore the favor of some lady or even the lady’s sleeve upon their helmets. The knight simply took the colors, ribbon, handkerchief, or whatever the lady’s favor might be and twisted it in and out, or over and over the fillet which surrounded the joining place of crest and helmet. The accidental result of twinning a favor with a turban of the East produced the conventional torse or crest wreath. As the conventional slashings of the lambrequin hinted at past hard fighting in battle, so the crest wreath hinted at dangerous encounters and services rendered to and in the favor of ladies-love and war being the primary occupations of the perfect knights of romance. In consequence, this device has become a fixed and definite part of all heraldic achievements and it is an unalterable
rule in British heraldry that the torse shall be included in the arms and most often is of the principal metal and color of the field. The torse, then, is symbolic of the romantic aspect of group life and stands for the honor and respect which the fraternity man has for womanhood. Many fraternities, however, read into the torse the fact that the six divisions represent six links in a strong chain of friendship and thus the torse often symbolized t h e spirit of fraternity, or brotherhood. The Badge of Delta Chi Proper: This is simply a golden Greekletter Delta superimposed over the Greek-letter Chi of
larger size and often containing in its central point the representation of the white carnation-the flower of the fraternity. It carries the connotation of all that a fraternity man holds dear. Motto: Long before heraldry became an hereditary institution the motto constituted the war cry of the clan, or more specifically the call of the lord of the manor to his knights. However, when
arms were later granted by the crown to famous and noble families, the motto was inscribed upon the motto-ribbon displayed beneath the shield and ofttimes represented the ambitions or characteristic phrases associated with those particular families. In American college fraternities the heraldic bearings often carry the Greek-letter fraternity name, while in the arms of Delta Chi the Latin word leges is used. Delta Chi was originally founded by those who were preparing for the profession of law and it was not until 1918  that the fraternity took on a purely social aspect. And so the motto – leges – hearkening back to the days when law was the aspiration of the initiates, is still used. The border of the shield is embellished with a representation of rivets which were used to hold the several laminations of the shield together thus affording greater strength in the protection of the knight. While such decoration has no official heraldic significance, it does carry the idea that the Delta Chi Fraternity affords strong protection to all those within its bond. When the fraternity man is once acquainted with the wealth of tradition which lies behind the coat-of-arms of his fraternity, and he becomes thoroughly conversant with the secret symbolism therein employed, he cannot but live a better life and be a better man by ofttimes being reminded of it. By associating it with his personal adornment, whether it be on a fraternity ring or charm, or as a gift from a friend, he is reminded of the idealism which binds him to his fraternity-a priceless heritage known only to the chosen few.
Editor’s Note: The coat of arms shown above appeared on the cover of the Quarterlies printed from the first issue in April 1903 though the February 1905 issue. The fourth quarter of the shield contains a representation of mail that was worn by knights of old. In response to the 1930 article reprinted here, Roy V. Rhodes, Cornell ’01 wrote that he and his college roommate, Fraser Brown, Cornell ’00 were the “... co-authors and orginators of the fraternity coat of arms.” He went on to state, “This was in the spring of 1899 and not 1890 as as indicated in Mr. Balfour’s article and I know of no previous coat of arms for the fraternity.” [While not a coat of arms in the normally accepted sense, Delta Chi had been using the “Hand and Key” emblem developed by Founder Peter S. Johnson since its first year of existence.] Rhodes also stated, “Some slight changes were made a few years later by whom I do not know. I had nothing to do with it and I don’t think Fraser Brown had either. One of these changes was the addition of a lot of what appear to be rivets around the edges of the shield and which do not, in my opinion, improve the appearance. Another change was the placing of the martlets in profile instead of from a front view in flight. I believe we adopted the front view because that is the way they are shown on the arms of Sir Edward. For practical reasons we omitted the usual helmet and united the crest and helmet in one great insignia of the fraternity – the Greek letters, ∆ and Χ, with the torso between the shield and the crest instead of in its usual position above the helmet.” A more complete version of Roy V. Rhodes’ 1930 letter may be found under the History section of www.deltachi.org. ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2003 5
Abra brothers displaying their Delta Chi pride! Alabama Paired with Pi Beta Phi for Greek Week, we placed high in several events and finished the week with one of the best swaps we had all year. In March, we had our first Parents’ Day since we’ve been back and had a catered lunch on our patio. Sean McCarty was recently inducted into Order of Alpha, a Greek honor society. Gary Barnes was named to a second term as High School Leadership chairman. Marcus Stacey was elected vice-president of the College of Engineering Ambassadors. Michael Collins was elected as Senator of the College of Arts and Sciences. Michael Cumby recently founded the Kayak Club, and has been named as the president. Seth Collins was tapped into Jasons.

Appalachian State Spring 2003 marked the first semester of deferred recruitment. We held a goal-setting meeting at which we listed what we wanted Delta Chi to be and do during the semester. We had a great time at our Sir Edward Coke Semi-Formal in Hilton Head, SC. We resurrected the “Trippin Rastafarian” mixer with the Kappa Deltas, and we mixed with Alpha Delta Pi at which the theme was “Kiss me Delta Chi, I’m A-D-Pi-rish.” To end the year we held our “Reading Day” party with the brothers of Theta Chi. 6 ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2003
For our community service we worked on a Habitat for Humanity house, painted the Watauga County Hunger Coalition building and built a doghouse for the Watauga Humane Society. Chad Ray and Matt Gordon coached a youth league basketball team consisting of eleven 5 th and 6 th graders through the Watauga Parks and Recreation department.
Arizona We had fierce competition in the playoffs for intramural softball and ultimate Frisbee. Under the leadership of House Director Steve Wymer, the house is in great condition and much improved in safety. This will be great for the house’s full capacity this fall. We owe our success to Steve and “DD” Michael Woolbright. We are only one semester away from the re-application process to get recognition back from Greek Life, and with all 65 members working together, we will achieve our goal.
Arizona State It is official! We are now a chapter. On May 10th we hosted a banquet at the Camelback Inn for family, friends, and alumni. In February, almost 25 brothers attended our Regional Leadership Conference at Cal Poly and enjoyed a great weekend of meeting brothers from other chapters in Region II, learning about the fraternity, learning how to make the most of their experience, and developing our
respective chapters. We were selected to host the RLC in 2004! We have moved to the top of philanthropic events. In Kappa Kappa Gamma’s and Delta Gamma’s philanthropies we placed 1st in skits and took 2nd and 1st overall, respectively. We placed 2nd overall in Alpha Chi Omega’s philanthropy. In intramurals, we dominated in the sports we participated in: Basketball, 3rd overall; Bowling, 3rd overall; Softball, 2nd in Greeks and 3rd overall; Soccer, 1 st in Greeks and 3rd overall; and Volleyball 1st in Greeks and 3rd overall.
Auburn This past summer there were many events that helped us introduce potential associates to Delta Chi. In June we went to a Braves game, in July we attended Six Flags and in August we held our summer lake party at Lake Martin. Please send your email update to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bowling Green Losing by only a few seconds, we took third place in the Beta 500. This philanthropy is a pushcart race around a 1/8mile track and is the cap-off event of Greek Week. For Greek Week we were paired with Chi Omega. Other events that we participated in were the Greek God/Goddess, Greek Olympics and the Survivor Game. We did win the Most Spirited Chapter award with Chi Omega.
California-PA For spring we added seven associate members, almost doubling our size. We sold raffle tickets and gave away a photo session, with the proceeds going to our troops overseas. Other fund-raisers in the works are Cow Chip Bingo, and GO! Fundraising scratch packs. We held our annual AIDS Awareness Week, giving away information packets and free condoms in the Student Center. Other philanthropies included a Throne-A-Thon at which brothers sat on two toilets in the
center of town for 24 hours collecting donations, with proceeds benefiting the local D.A.R.E. program. In May, we held our eighth annual Golf Tournament and had a turnout of 40 brothers and alumni. Things are really improving!
Cal Poly Forty-two people played in our annual alumni golf tournament, which was capped off with a dinner and reception at the Madonna Inn. We also had some fun exchanges with Kappa Alpha Theta and AOPi. We took first in Greek Week and second in IFC sports. We won the soccer championship by winning a shootout during the championship. Our White Carnation celebration was held in San Francisco on a yacht that circled the bay. To top off the evening, it was announced that our chapter will have a house next year.
Chico We had a strong recruitment with 23 men. We also had the honor of initiating the members of the Oregon State Colony. We had a great turnout for our parents’ weekend during which everyone enjoyed a catered dinner and a great slide show. We also hosted a great Alumni Weekend. In April we held our White Carnation Formal in South Lake Tahoe. Socially we were busy, holding functions with Alpha Gamma Delta, Gamma Phi Beta, Sigma Kappa, and Alpha Phi. For community service, we participated in Adopt-a-Block to help beautify our city. In addition, we did a canned food drive and participated in Bowling for Kids Sake to benefit the Boys and Girls Club.
Colorado State Colony
We ranked third amongst all fraternities and sororities with new members. We made brotherhood a focus with Brotherhood Chair Todd Shinn holding events from football to in-line hockey. Most notably, we attended a professional football game.
To end the semester, we joined with the Colorado Colony and had our spring formal in Breckenridge. During the formal, we began a new tradition with the “roasting” of the Delta Chi Man of the Year. This year the honors and “roasting” went to Tim Ulrich.
Connecticut We participated in the 4th annual Husky Midnight Marathon, which is the largest charity event run by Greek Life. The dance marathon benefits the Children’s Miracle Network. We anxiously await our move into a 15-man house in Greek Village.
DePauw Spring brought a number of exciting events as well as 10 initiates. Improvement in this year’s rush was due to the incredible involvement of four alumni, Steve Galbreath ’00, Dale Espich ’51, Mike Rossi ’02, and Chris Stephen ’98. We again made the trip to Gatlinburg, TN for our Senior Formal. Dinner was held at the country’s most-visited aquarium and included an under-the-tank tour as well as dancing on the riverside veranda. From high class to high seas, our return from Tennessee found us hosting our annual Hawaii 4-0 party, featuring a local band and a popular DJ as well as an active volcano in our backyard. We completed our semester with a newly revised scholarship program, headed by sophomore Nate Nichols. As the beginning of the next school year quickly approaches, we are not only planning an even better rush but a monumental 75th Anniversary Celebration on November 1st. We hope to see many alumni return.
Duquesne In Duquesne Carnival, “The Gobstopper,” written by Jeff Wickert and directed by Jeff Bucci, received excellent reviews. The story line included a cast of characters from our favorite gangster movies with a sweet twist. Gobstopper is the head of the candy mafia. The talent of D Chi and G Phi B impressed the judges, coming in first place overall. The Gobstopper himself, Steve Wesling, won best actor. “The Gobstopper” also took home Best Costumes, Best Script and Alumni Choice Awards. Chapter Sweetheart Jen Jarzynka, of Gamma Phi Beta also won Best Supporting Actress. To raise money for the Nick Isaacs Endowment Fund, we held our annual rose sale for Valentine’s Day, as well as an online March Madness pool. Spring Formal was held at the Penn Scenic View. This year’s Chapter Founders’ Day included a speech by Steve Bossart, “CC”, and a silent auction that also benefited the Endowment Fund. This semester $3,175 was raised for the Fund. Delta Chi won Best New Member Education, 1st place Carnival, 1st place Greek Week, Chapter Officer of the Year: Jacob Becker, and Greek Merit Award went to Jeff Bucci at the awards banquet. The carpenters of D Chi got together with Father Tim Hickey to construct a deck on Laval House, a landmark at Duquesne where the Holy Ghost Fathers reside.

We recently helped build a deck for a close friend of the chapter. She was appreciative of the hard work. We are living up to the expectations of being named “Organization of the Year.”
Ferris Our fourth annual January Jams, a concert put on with the help of the Office of Student Leadership and Activities, Student Activity Fund of Student Government, and The Student Affairs Programming Committee, made for a tall task for a chapter of only 22 brothers. Our duties included gathering and budgeting funds from the various other organizations listed, as well as selecting the band, handling the stage, sound, and lighting set-up and tear down, as well as providing security.
Gannon Congratulations go to Sean Menz, who was runner-up for the Greek God competition and Nick Riccio who was runnerup for Gannon’s Mr./Miss GU competition. Paul Gradl received the Chapter’s Outstanding Alumnus Award and also received Gannon’s Greek Alumnus of the Year Award. For Gannon’s Springtopia, we sponsored a “Hole in One for your Heart” putt-putt challenge event with proceeds going to the American Heart Association. We also participated in Gannon’s first Relay For Life walk to raise money for cancer.
Georgia Southern Colony Chico brothers at their White Carnation Formal.
Delta Chi has returned to Georgia Southern! Last fall we
initiated 47 founding fathers. A special thanks to the brothers from Georgia Tech for making the trip and performing the ritual. We initiated three more members this spring. We were busy with many philanthropy events and outings, including an awesome rafting trip to the Occonee River in Tennessee. We sent our entire executive board to the Regional Leadership Conference held in Atlanta. The semester was topped off by placing 2nd overall in Greek Week.
Georgia Tech Our annual Greek Week was highlighted by victories in Greek Sing and Tug. The long hours of practice proved successful, as our Greek Sing act was the one to beat. The even greater achievement during Greek Week was our appearance in the finals of Tug. Historically winning only one match, we won four in a row to make the finals, knocking off many traditional heavyweights. Lastly, we had the highest G.P.A. for the second year in a row.
Huntsville Our house improvements focused on increasing its occupancy rate. We have a new stove and put wood paneling in the main room. A brother donated a big screen TV, so we have had numerous Movie Nights at the house. In Greek Week we came in second to the PIKEs after a close battle and winning last year. Last fall, we assisted in running a soccer game for home schooled children. For Founders’ Day, we were honored to have “AA” Charles Mancuso as our keynote speaker. We have also received the honor of hosting the ’04 Region VIII Conference. ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2003 7
have participated in every team sport and most of the individual sports. We are planning to build a horseshoe pit behind the house, so we can dominate in that sport next semester. In extracurricular activities, Zach Hauser and Sheldon Bucl were both elected to student senate. Three members are also on the Kansas State Lacrosse Team.
DePauw brothers and dates enjoying themselves at their formal. Illinois Our spring social calendar included exchanges with Kappa Alpha Theta, Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Gamma Delta, and Pi Beta Phi, as well as our formal at Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena. Our Annual Block Party was held May 3rd. We continued to spend free weekends at Swan School, a local home for individuals with multiple disabilities. In total we’ve volunteered over 300 service hours and have found the experience to be quite rewarding. Other philanthropic events this semester included Sigma Kappa’s Volleyball Tournament and Delta Zeta’s “Crazy Bowl,” as well as Gamma Phi Beta and Pi Beta Phi’s Spaghetti Dinners.
Iowa We are anxious to show off our new wood floors, oriental rugs and burgundy leather furniture at Homecoming on October 4th. We are planning an alumni tailgater at the house. Please e-mail “E” Chris Costas at email@example.com about the event. Include your name, address, phone, class year, and any other information.
Kansas We organized two new annual events. The first was an Easter egg hunt for underprivileged kids in the community. This year we joined with the women of Gamma Phi Beta and had a great time. Activities included singing, an Easter egg hunt, decorating cookies, and even a spontaneous food fight. The second was the Hawk Trot 5K run/walk through campus, followed by a barbecue. All of 8 ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2003
the proceeds went towards helping underprivileged kids. Again, we paired up with Gamma Phi Beta. Almost every member was a part of the race, be it running or working at the various stations. The participation we received from the rest of the community was shocking. Many of the 100 runners were faculty members and administrators. On May 3rd we held our annual May Meeting at which scholarships and awards were handed out to deserving members. Alumni also came back to reunite with each other and to meet the new members.
Kansas State This semester we had a bowling function with Alpha Xi Delta and a game night function with Kappa Kappa Gamma. We also held our Earthball Philanthropy with Kappa to raise money for the Headstart program in Manhattan. We are paired with Kappa Sigma, Kappa Delta and Sigma Lambda Gamma for Homecoming and have already had a barbecue together so we could get to know each other. Some major house improvements include repainting two hallways and our stairwell, along with several new pieces of equipment in our kitchen. At our Alumni Banquet in April, we went to the spring football game and had a prime rib dinner at the house. The alumni bought us a new lawnmower. Our mom’s weekend raised $1,700 for house improvements by having an auction with items donated by the moms. In intramurals we are currently in softball playoffs and
Our housing board is going to purchase our house! We will finally have a place to call our own. We also were able to hold onto the highest overall GPA. Our annual semi-formal was held at the Bavarian Inn in Frankenmuth. Members and alumni were able to share in such great experiences as dancing to “The Chicken Dance” and mumbling the words of “Friends in Low Places.” Our ten-man associate class was the largest since our founding. Their project consisted of designing and making signs for all the apartments and thus assigning each a unique name.
Kettering-B We racked up quite a few philanthropy hours already this term, and we have had some fun brotherhood events such as movie nights, comedy club nights, and other events to help strengthen the Bond. We had 38 in attendance at our retreat at Camp Tapico.
Livingston We helped our alumni build a deck on our house and repair our driveway. We had our 36th annual Indian Party, which is a three-day event. This year we cooked crawfish on Friday and ribs on Saturday and had bands on both Thursday and Saturday nights. On Friday we participated in the RELAY FOR LIFE.
Louisiana Tech Along with the KAs, we hosted our annual spring pig roast which was attended by all of the sororities. Many alumni, parents, and friends attended our annual crawfish boil on May 3rd. It started with a great softball tournament where the actives played the alumni. On the morning of the boil, a golf scramble and skeet shoot were held. Everyone enjoyed the day playing volleyball, eating crawfish, and listening to live music. Alan Watts ’03, is the first from our chapter to be a Leadership Consultant for Delta Chi. On a patriotic note, we have had some associate members activated for military duty since the war in Iraq. We are proud of these guys and hope they make it home safely.
Miami Our Over-The-Top philanthropy had many participants and raised over $500 for the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. We continue to do “Adopt a Highway” and “Adopt a Block” to keep our city clean. For Dad’s Day we played an 18-hole scramble at the Houston Woods Golf Course and finished off the day with an excellent rib dinner made by our new cook, Cindy. For our formal we stayed in huge, beautiful chalets with large hot tubs and pool tables in Gatlinburg, TN. Thanks to generous donations from our alumni, we have remodeled three more rooms and the common areas. Our chapter is proud of our 22-man spring class!
Minnesota Devoting our time to recruitment and social events paid off, as we added 12 new men and are looking to add another ten in the fall. We are also remodeling our kitchen and study room.

We were able to set up a wireless network with DSL in our house, which has provided an inexpensive internet connection. Our annual Wet ’N’ Wild party was once again a success, with a number of alumni returning to visit over Super Bulldog Weekend to feast on 400 pounds of crawfish and see the 100-foot slide in the front yard again. We are also proud of the men who took home first place along with the ladies of Kappa Delta in Tri Delta’s Frats at Bat. Our White Carnation Ball was again held in New Orleans in March. A new addition to our schedule was a Catfish Fry with the ladies of Delta Delta Delta and Zeta Phi Beta and the gentlemen of Phi Beta Sigma this April, further improving our relations with NPHC organizations. This fall marks the 40th anniversary of our founding and we will hold celebrations on the weekend of the LSU football game, September 27th.
For our first spring class in four years we initiated two men. We kept the semester going by winning the Greek intramurals for basketball and softball. Our annual trip to New York City was made by ten brothers to help to feed the homeless. We also had a canned food drive, which raised nearly a half-ton of food. We wound the semester down with our movie night and our Second Annual Father Art Luncheon. The luncheon was another success, and many alumni had a great time in honoring our past “BB”.
Missouri We initiated 17 brothers this past spring! We were pleased to see many alumni at our annual Alumni Weekend in April. Reports from Joe Viviano ’88, President of the Alumni Association and from John Kruse ’89, President of the Sir Edward Coke Inc. Housing Corporation followed. The ABT also announced the formation of the Parents’ Association. Chapter awards were then presented. Alumnus of the Year went to Jack Huggans ’60. Huggans was also introduced as the new housefather. Parent of the Year was presented to Jane Wise. Special awards for service were presented to Jim Sharrock ’84, and Kirsten Kennedy for work on the ABT. Last semester we participated in Greek Week with Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Gamma Phi Beta. We also held numerous events, from our annual paintball tournament to the St. Louis Cardinals outing, to help improve brotherhood. We capped the semester off with our annual White Carnation Ball at the Lake of the Ozarks. Throughout the year the House Corporation will be continually running a capital campaign for house improvements.
Montevallo We dominated Greek Week this year as overall winners. J.B. Hutchinson was named Mr. Greek Week. Also, our advisor for over thirty years, O.J. Carson, was named advisor of the year. We also proudly took home the most campus/community involvement award. We worked the annual Boy Scouts of America Camporee this year and had a great time cooking, setting up tents, and just overall volunteering. We took second in intramurals and finished second in grades. We held our annual “Pig Roast” alumni gathering, with brothers and alumni enjoying great food and a golf tournament.
New Haven We pinned seven associates this spring. We also participated in many community service activities, such as beach cleanups at the local beaches. Another event we enjoyed was becoming teachers for a few days teaching inner city kids grades K-3 in Bridgeport. We taught two different sessions, one session a week, and we taught the kids about things like money, the community and government. Another big event that we always do is sponsor the Red Cross and hold a Blood Drive at which we were able to get 60+ pints of blood. We also volunteered every few Sundays at a local retirement home. For our fundraiser, we made calendars featuring our members. Each month was a different collage from Homecoming, our Golf Tournament, our softball game and other events.

New Mexico State At the beginning of the year we were awarded with the highest GPA; this is a first for us but hopefully not the last. Two members were elected to IFC executive board; Francisco Cornidez as secretary and Jonathan Nichols as rush chair. Our annual Disco Inferno Date Party was a blast as MC Keith Spolar was a hit yet again. We all had a great time barbecuing, bowling and just hanging out at our Parents’ Weekend. A Parents’ Association will soon be started. We finished 5th overall in Greek Week out of 14. The high note was our tug team’s run for a championship although we finished in 2nd place. Ryan Brown was honored with “Brother of the Year,” “Leader of the Year” and “Executive Member of the Semester.”
Northeast Missouri We recently helped start the Brian Archibald Agency Account, which is an organization helping to raise money for a Truman State alumnus fighting cancer. We have already helped raise $2,000 of the $3,000 needed for Brian’s medical bill, and we will continue to raise money above our goal to help the fight against cancer. Our active presence in this organization has really helped our reputation on campus and has changed the perception of Delta Chi and the Greek system in the eyes of many different non-Greeks.
Northern Colorado We participated in many community philanthropies, excelled in Greek activities, and hosted the Regional Leadership Conference for Region IV. Every semester we hold a food drive for the Weld County Food Bank. We were able to
raise over 1,500 lbs. of food. We also read to schoolchildren at Dos Rios elementary. The school then asked us to help put together an end of the year carnival for the kids. For our first place finish in intramural football, Denver Broncos’ cheerleaders greeted our team. This was a big hit in the chapter! Also, we were able to take first place in Greek Week.
Northwest Missouri As usual, we have had a strong showing at all intramural events and are trying to repeat as champions. Our National and American teams took third and fourth place in basketball and volleyball this trimester. Several alumni and undergraduates attended our alumni event “Running of the Dogs” at the Kansas City Woodlands. In Greek Week we took second in banner and ultimate frisbee and first in volleyball. Past “A” David Whitacre was honored at the Greek Week awards ceremony with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his dedication to the Greek community.
Northwestern First, we have seized the opportunity to return a piece of our history to present prominence. A grandfather clock, gifted to Northwestern’s Law School by our original chapter on April 8, 1903, now resides in the house, recently celebrating its 100th birthday. Our Associate Member program celebrated another perfect year, initiating all 23 members of the Zeta Class, continuing our tradition of 100% retention of our rush classes. Just after initiation, our new brothers painted “The Rock,” a tradition at Northwestern, to commemorate their new affiliation. ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2003 9
During the year we participated in community service projects ranging from helping at grade schools to “adopt-a-spot” cleanups. Everyone was glad to have our help, and we were glad to serve our community. We won several awards this year. We received “the minimum standards membership award,” “the minimum standards risk management award” and “the highest overall GPA.”
Northwestern’s Zeta Class paints “The Rock.” Our floor hockey team made it to the finals for the third time in the past four years. Spring quarter brought two major philanthropy events: 2003 Foosball Tournament, co-sponsored with Sigma Phi Epsilon and the Undergraduate Premedical Society benefiting the American Cancer Society; and Sand Sculpture, co-sponsored with Alpha Chi Omega and benefiting Chicago’s Children’s Memorial Hospital’s “Wish Foundation.”
Ohio (Columbus, Ohio) We hosted the second annual Undergraduate Student Government (USG) debate at Reynolds Lodge. Ryan Frazee moderated the debate, which included all of this year’s Presidential/Vice Presidential candidates as well as candidates for Greek Senator. The event was a positive and productive event for all involved. Our house was packed with students from all over campus and the Greek community, as well as parents and others. Four of six candidates for president were Greeks, and all candidates presented well-thought-out platforms with which to help the Greeks. The debate was featured in the campus newspaper, The Lantern.
Oregon State Colony We’re back! After leaving in 1999, Delta Chi has returned to the OSU campus. A founding father class of 18 members was initiated with much excitement. What better way to show that we’re back than to get the highest G.P.A. with a respectable 3.177. This was a great surprise to the SPEs, who had taken this honor the last six years. The house is going through $170,000 worth of renovations. 10 ∆X Quarterly Summer/Fall 2003
Alumni and colony members are working hard together to get the house prepared so that we can move in this fall.
Purdue Parker Snyder ’03 is spending his summer trekking 3,600 miles across the country in an effort to raise awareness for abused and neglected children. Parker touched his rear wheel in the Atlantic Ocean on the coast of New Hampshire on May 15 th and is crossing 14 states on his trip to California. Along the way, Parker is promoting his cause by contacting local news agencies, participating in rallies, and giving speeches on the issues of child abuse and neglect. Adam Kasick and Nick Watt had another impressive showing at Purdue’s annual Grand Prix on April 25th by earning 3rd and 5th place respectively. During Grand Prix week, we got great use out of our new patio and newly landscaped front yard. Plans for house improvements this summer include central air for the entire house; new carpeting upstairs; and a fully renovated first floor with a new formal room, larger entryway, and new dining area. In intramurals, Brent Becker and Greg Yashewski won the doubles tennis championship, and our soccer team took runner-up in the intramural tournament and also won this year’s Alpha Gam soccer cup.
Radford We have made extraordinary efforts in our alumni relations, and for the first time we have a functioning ABT. We were also able to establish a House Corporation.
Reno We welcomed many new members and also had some of our older brothers come back to become actives once again. We moved into our new house, and we are loving it! In sports, we took 5th in basketball, 3rd in arena football, 4th in soccer and tied for 1st in floor hockey. We also showed up strong in numbers for the Region II Conference. Sixteen brothers made the seven-hour trek to San Luis Obispo and had a great time.
Rhode Island Colony There are 31 enthused, excited, anxious and determined founding fathers who are ready to make this the best fraternity on campus. Although this is only our first semester as a colony, we have established ourselves on campus and throughout the Greek community. Our first Greek Week impressed us, as well as other fraternities and sororities. Although most of our time was committed to establishing the first colony of Delta Chi at the
URI, we participated in every event. In fact the first event, the torch race, was won by Delta Chi! We also participated in a community cleanup and volunteered our time on Welcome Day to help incoming freshmen. Community service and philanthropy are top priorities for us. We are currently busy talking to and building relations with alumni around the area. Delta Chi at Bryant and its alumni have been great helping us get off on the right foot.
Rutgers The semester’s highlight was our first annual formal banquet, with over 45 undergraduates and alumni in attendance. We continued our involvement in Dance Marathon, a charity event held annually at Rutgers. Delta Chi involvement varied from canning to collect money to volunteering as security staff for the event. In sports, our basketball team overcame an injury to a starter and still made the play-offs. Jan Arceo and Stephen Paskovich placed first and second respectively in the tennis tournament. We also welcomed five new members this semester, as well as Robert Cobb and John Austin as alumni initiates. Robert and John are Jersey City Firemen and were among the first responders to the World Trade Centers on 9/11. These two men provided the keynote addresses at the Region VII Conference and were then asked to join as alumni members.

Alan was serving as the “B” last spring until he received orders to depart to the war in Iraq. Fred was “F” during the past fall trimester until receiving orders sometime during our Winter Break to leave for Iraq in early January.
South Dakota Colony
Our annual March of Dimes walk was a learning experience. The newer members got to bond with the upperclassmen all in the interest of charity, allowing us to become a much closer group. However, the weekend had only begun; the following night many of the members volunteered to set up and clean up after a major concert on campus. This included loading, unloading, and setting up the stage.
In February, we held several brotherhood events, including dinners, basketball games and candle-pass. Most of our chapter also attended the Region III Leadership Conference, hosted by the Southwest Texas Chapter. In March, many of our brothers went to South Padre Island for spring break. At the end of March, we took first place in Greek Olympics. Our intramural basketball team made it to the finals once again and ended up third place overall. We started a scholarship in honor of a friend of ours who passed away last year in an automobile accident. This scholarship will be awarded to students from our area wishing to attend Tarleton. For this special time in our history, we held our 15th Anniversary White Carnation Ball in Fort Worth. Our “80’s Five Dollar Prom” mixer with AGD was held a few weeks later. With April coming to a close, we held a philanthropy event at the local foster home where, along with a sorority, we held an Easter egg hunt for the kids there. To end the semester we, including many of our alumni, attended the “15th Annual Larry Joe Taylor Music Festival and Chili Cook-off” in Stephenville.
Southwest Missouri Colony We were paired up with the ladies of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority for our first Greek Week appearance. After participating in every event and winning the largest event, the Greek Jam Dance Competition, we won First Place overall! This inspired our colony’s motto for next year, “First Year, First Place.” Another first we achieved was in Kappa Sigma’s philanthropy. Despite our numbers, we donated more clothing than any other fraternity on campus. Also, our numbers are vastly improving with one of the biggest spring rushes on campus, during which we initiated six new members. Rush Chairman Patrick Doran is working on a summer rush to aid us this fall. Also, former “A” Alec Lee now holds office on IFC as the Vice-President of Academics.
Syracuse Colony While four brothers drove to New Orleans to support the University’s basketball team at the Final Four, several others packed into the Carrier Dome to watch the game on a large screen television with other SU fans. While in New Orleans, our brothers even ran into brothers from Marquette, showing that the brotherhood really is nationwide. We were also active in the community. Brothers participated for several weekends in a Habitat for Humanity project that helped build a house for a single mother in the area. Brothers were responsible for things like siding, sanding, and painting walls.
Texas We decided that the end of classes did not need to cause the end of brotherhood events for the active chapter. Deciding that the summer would be an excellent opportunity to gather together in other cities where many of the actives are originally from, the chapter put together a series of events spaced out over the summer break to keep those not living in Austin involved. In June we traveled to Galveston, where we rented a beach house for the weekend. This was the third year in a row that we have done this event, and its success has increased every year. In July the chapter traveled to Dallas, where one of our members was gracious enough to lend us his house for the weekend. Barbecuing by the pool always proves to be a good time. In
Rhode Island brothers pose for their first Quarterly photo. August, we brought everybody back to Austin for the final event of the summer.
Tri-State Once again, the highlight of our spring was our Alumni Weekend. This year, nearly forty alumni returned to mingle with the brothers. We also participated in many philanthropic activities. We helped cook at the local V.F.W., helped at an after-school art program at Prairie Heights Elementary, held our 3rd Annual Bikea-thon to benefit Turning Point Homeless Shelter, and participated in many other smaller activities, ranging from parking cars for a Literacy Coalition dinner to holding our first Car Bash to benefit the Red Cross. For intramurals, we had teams for both basketball and volleyball. In volleyball we made it to the final tournament. Toward the end of the semester, we held a retreat for the broth-
ers in order to review our semester goals and see what needed to be improved for next semester. The retreat was headed up by “A” Dave Wertz. To start the retreat, the brothers went to a local Chinese, buffet-style restaurant. Toward the end of the night, we held a round table discussion on chapter pride and other topics.
UNLV We initiated 14 new members, the highest on campus. We currently have five brothers serving as student senators, three E-board members of the Student Alumni Association, one on campus crusade, the school’s Entertainment and Programming Director, and the Student Body Vice President. Also, three brothers had their original artwork and poetry published in UNLV’s first ever literary magazine, including Ben Sakin, who was the Associate Editor. Continued on page 14

ALUMNI CHAPTERS Arizona Valley
Western Ontario brothers at their White Carnation Formal. Continued from page 11
This year we had the first ever Delta Chi Family Weekend and hope to carry on the tradition throughout the years. In this year ’s Alumni versus Brothers football game, the brothers edged out a last second victory and earned bragging rights for the year. This year ’s Kings Krown philanthropy raised nearly $60,000. We also won an award for best philanthropy for Ally’s Prom Closet.
Virginia Commonwealth We hosted the Region IX Leadership Conference with over 130 in attendance. During the regional conference, we had three honorary initiates, including Tim Justice, Vic Routsis, and Anthony Martinez, for their continued dedication to Delta Chi. The Regional Leadership Conference could not have been successful without the hard work of Matthew Braydich, Hamoon Hadavand, and all the brothers. This year was highlighted by having the highest G.P.A., our first annual parents’ banquet, and Jeremy Rosen winning Mr. Greek VCU for the fourth year in a row. We also send our prayers to Lucas Ecker, who is in service to his country.
West Chester With winning the IFC cup, placing second in Greek Week, and having the largest associate member class in the spring, Delta Chi at West Chester is on its way back to the top.

This past October, our petition to establish an Alumni Chapter for all alumni living in Arizona was granted! We wish to keep our chapter focused on fun events for the alumni, wives and families. Please come to an event or at least keep in touch. Brotherhood only gets better with graduation! Our first annual golf classic was sold out and a great success. We have Cardinals games as well as dinners planned for the future. Visit www.azact.com/deltachi to keep informed about our events. Congratulations to Harvey Gibson, Arizona State ’02 for winning the Tempe Chamber Volunteer of the Year Award. Great job Joe Benzing, Ferris State ’96 and Todd Mastrorilli, Radford ’97 for placing second in The Every Kid Counts Celebrity Golf Tournament.
ning this year. There has not been a day gone by, where one of us has not been proud to say “I’m a Delta Chi.”
Western Ontario Colony The academic year started with the eight members of Beta class and another four members for the Gamma class in the second semester. Throughout the year we held various charity events for the Alzheimer’s Association and participated in various social events within the Greek community, such as the AGD Greek games and the Mr. Greek competition held by Alpha Phi. The Greek games include various events such as Sumo Wrestling, Arm Wrestling, and collecting money for charity, in which all the fraternities compete. Delta Chi, displaying all our skills and talents, won the title! The 2003 White Carnation Formal brought together over 90 alumni and guests for a spectacular night of brotherhood. The night was started with the initiation of our Gamma class at Toronto’s Courthouse. The night then progressed to one of Toronto’s finest restaurants, The Rosewater. Our web site has been revamped by Rani Hamasni to include pictures of all our events, a guest book for the alumni and guests, and a section that allows brothers to purchase our clothing. This will be a great tool for recruitment and communication with the alumni. Elliott Chun has accepted a position at our Headquarters as a Leadership Consultant. We encourage you to visit our web site at www.delta chiuwo.com.
Golf Chairs Russ Gunther, Iowa State ’89 and Todd Mastrorilli, 97 with Gamma Phi Beta Sorority volunteers. Capitol Area On Sunday, April 27, a party of twelve assembled for the sixth annual “De;ta Chi at the Races” picnic. This year’s event took place at the Middleburg Hunt Point in the beautiful village of Middleburg, VA. The wonderful scenery and perfect weather provided an ideal backdrop for the annual invasion of the hunt country. This event is a tailgate picnic on the outside rail of a steeplechase course. The races are held in the British tradition across a cross county course requiring horses and riders to navigate a series of obstacles. Brothers who participated this year were: Pat Bowling, Johnstown ’81; Pete Korch, Johnstown ’84; Jim LeVan, Johnstown ’80; Mike Magri, Johnstown ’84 and Bill Moran, Stanford ’55. Wives, significant others, and family members joined in the festivities as well. The group enjoyed great food and conversation all day long as the throughbreds jumped fences at breakneck speed only a few yards away. A great day was had by all and we are already planning another event in 2004.
