Delta Chi Quarterly Winter/Spring 2003
One Hundred Years of the Quarterly
One HundredYears of the Quarterly O
NE HUNDRED YEARS. In many ways, the Quarterly has been the Fraternity’s diary. It has chronicled such events as our going single membership while still a professional law fraternity, the struggle over becoming a social fraternity as opposed to remaining a law fraternity, the various changes in our form of governance and even the tragic death of the incumbent “AA”, James C. Steffan, Ohio State ’22, at the 1975 Chicago Convention. It has announced and reported on over 50 conventions. It has covered major and not so major chapter events, such as the 1900 Cornell Chapter house fire in which several brothers were seriously injured and one died from injuries incurred in a jump from a thirdstory window. It has covered a range of events in the lives of countless members and highlighted the significant achievements of many. It has touched on social changes and major events in society. Styles of clothing and even haircuts have been captured in these pages. Editorials on the “issues of the day” and Founders’ Day Messages have provided us with thoughts to ponder. To read the Quarterly from 1903 to 2003 can give one a unique perspective on what we simply call “Delta Chi,” a perspective that is impossible to achieve any other way. A perspective that not only hass Delta Chi extended beyond one’s own chapter to over 200 college campuses but through time as well. Time measured not just by the memories and stories of our oldest alumni but by one hundred years of our diary – the Quarterly. The April 1903 Quarterly was 6.5" x 10" and was 76 pages in length. Impressive indeed given fourteen active chapters, 250 undergraduates and not many more alumni! Within those pages were such items as an article by Founder Monroe Marsh Sweetland on the founding of Delta Chi; a scholarly, law article by Fraser Brown, Cornell ’00 entitled, “Committees of Incompetent Persons” and Chapter Correspondence, the original “Campus Scene.” 2 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2003
Through the years, both the size and the content of the magazine changed. Not surprising given 18 different Editors, Acting Editors or Publication Editors and even more than 30 years when it was simply “edited at the Central Office.” Then add in the changes in society and several periods of financial difficulties and times when the magazine went wanting for someone with the interest and time available to do more. Such as Volume XXIV, Number 2. The December 1927 issue was printed on one piece of paper measuring 10" x 14.5" and was simply folded in half. This “four-pager” was printed in rather large type with the introductory article referring to the “transition” between eras and announcing the naming of Albert “Pudge” Tousley, MN ’24 as the new Editor. By contrast, the issues from 1906 through 1913 usually contained over 120 pages. The overall dimensions of the magazine fluctuated widely as well. A typical issue of the Quarterly from 1917 until 1955 measured 8.75" x 11.75" and contained between 50 and 75 pages. In the early 1970s, it went to the size we know today. The Quarterly’s subscription policy has also undergone several changes. It was started with the intent of being financed through paid advertising and subscriptions. In the teens, a Life Subscription was $25 but at the 1923 Troutdale Convention, it was determined that $12.50 be added to the initiation fee instead and everyone initiated after that point would automatically receive a lifetime subscription. In an effort to combat inflation and an ever-increasing alumni base, the lifetime subscription was raised to $20 at the 1952 Convention. In 1970, the Quarterly Fund’s net assets stood at $4,986. In the March 1974 issue of the Quarterly, it was announced that the Quarterly Fund was running deeply in the red and that the 1973 New Orleans Convention had voted that means must be taken to discontinue this deficit spending. The following plan was proposed and unanimously adopted: undergraduate members would automatically receive the Quarterly while they were enrolled in college and alumni members, effective July 1, 1974,
The following motion was presented to the 1902 Chicago Convention by the Committee on Fraternity Publications at the closing session: “That a quarterly magazine embodying the information heretofore recorded in the ‘CC’s quarterly report, containing articles bearing on matters of general interest to the individual institutions in which Delta Chi has chapters, as well as general Fraternity news, be published under the supervision and at the expense of the General Fraternity, That an Editor-in-chief (having an associate, to be appointed by himself) be designated and appointed, who shall manage, edit and have the magazine printed. That the name of the quarterly publication of the Delta Chi Fraternity be known as “The Delta Chi Quarterly” The motion was passed unanimously by the eight chapters in attendance.
The following is taken from an article written by the eighth Editor, Roger Steffan, Ohio State ’13. Roger used the Quarterly to champion the Fraternity going social: “Let’s . . . come down to 1919. The war was over and . . . I was getting out another issue. I remember the night well. The magazine was practically ready to print and I was completing the editorials. Suddenly it struck me like a dazzling light: “Why Delta Chi’s a humbug. We’re posing before the world as a law fraternity, and we haven’t been a law fraternity for seven or eight years. True, a few chapters remain true to the law tradition but most of them are general.” And thereupon I decided to lift my piping voice in behalf of making Delta Chi an honest woman. If you will turn back to an issue of the fall of 1919 you’ll find an editorial, whose caption is as clear to me today as if it
would automatically receive the Quarterly for the first five years of alumni status. Thereafter, the alumni would be requested periodically (every five years was adopted) to indicate whether or not they wished to continue receiving the magazine. All Sustaining Life Members (now referred to as “Life Loyal Delta Chi” members) and those who had contributed to the annual Voluntary Dues Program (now called the Loyalty Fund) the prior year would also receive the Quarterly. Today, every mailable Delta Chi is sent the fall issue. While 60,000 copies are printed of the fall issue, only 25,000 of the other three issues are printed. Donors to the Loyalty Fund may send in $45 for a one-year subscription or $75 for a two-year subscription. A one-time $295 gift to the Loyalty Fund entitles the donor to a variety of privileges including: a lifetime subscription to the Quarterly, recognition on our website and in
the magazine as a “Life Loyal Delta Chi”, a recognition lapel pin and $100 off of all future convention registration fees. In comparison, one other fraternity mails its magazine only to alumni who have paid the lifetime fee. Others have announced in a single issue of their magazine that only those alumni responding to an ad will receive the magazine, while
were written yesterday, ‘Shall we go on, a General Fraternity?’ Thereupon the fat was in the fire. Hell was loose. And before the last echoes of that editorial were forgotten, the old order that, win or lose, we all love, well nigh had toppled about our ears. But she didn’t and so instead of starting a rebellion, that editorial started a revolution. And today we’re one of America’s great general fraternities. How much or how little the Quarterly policy played in swinging Delta Chi into the formal path of generalism, whence it was already in fact, I shall not try here to estimate. But in season and out until the constitutional amendment was part of our fundamental law, the policy of the Quarterly was almost exclusively devoted to proclaiming the inevitability of the success of the general cause.”
some have even had to cut back to publishing only three issues per year. Editor’s Note: For those members wishing to learn more about the history of the Quarterly, the articles honoring its twenty-fifth and fiftieth anniversaries are available on the Fraternity’s website at www.deltachi.org.

∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2003 3
CAMPUS SCENE ALABAMA We teamed up with Zeta Tau Alpha for Greek Week and competed in several events together, including the favorite of the week, the lip sync and dance contest. Not only did we win the event, we won the 2002 Greek Week championship! We had several brothers receive honors this past year. Brandon Hill was elected to Vice President of Academic Affairs in SGA and heads up the Academic Affairs cabinet. Gary Barnes was named the new committee chairman of the High School Leadership Conference. Jonathan Dewitt was named the new committee chairman of Academic Concerns. Michael Cumby was named vice-chairman of the Student Recruitment Committee, and Marcus Stacey was named as an ambassador to the College of Engineering. Our flag football team was undefeated in the regular season, breaking into the all men’s top 20 list, out of about 150 teams. For Homecoming we were paired with Kappa Alpha Theta. We helped them to create a beautiful lawn decoration, as well as a float.
AMERICAN For Alumni Weekend we enjoyed the music of Dave Mallen ’99 at a local restaurant, played the annual Alumni vs. Active flag football game and had an Alumni and Active brunch. We are also celebrating an Intramural Championship in flag football. “B” Team, coached by Dave Rosen ’03, Jordan Berg ’03 and Sean Streif ’04, had an undefeated season and hardfought championship. Our soccer team finished second.
APPALACHIAN STATE Last fall we started deferred recruitment and had six associates. Thanks to the hard work of social chair Corey Cameron, we mixed with five of our seven sororities. 4 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2003
We had our formal in the fall and went to The Breakers Hotel in Myrtle Beach, SC, with 44 guys and their dates. Our second Annual Alumni Golf Tournament at Hawksnest Golf and Ski Resort was won by Brian and Jason Gardner, their father Cline Gardner and Shane Wilkins. In November, we were privileged to have Chris Johnson Kentucky ’77, Order of the White Carnation, visit and lead us through a rush works h o p a s w e l l a s a Ritual exemplification. Finally, congratulations to Reed Davis and Jonathan Stovall on being hired as Delta Chi Leadership Consultants!
ARIZONA Recognizing that fraternity goes beyond a social endeavor, we have been actively involved with philanthropic events such as the Southern Arizona A.I.D.S. Foundation and the U of A Youth Against Cancer Association. Upholding our past intramural domination, we once again pulled through with a runner-up finish in Sunset League flag football. Our basketball team, headed by “B” Ben Lefebvre, competed in the annual 3-on-3 competitions. With lofty expectations, the intramural basketball team is looking to repeat its league championship. Danny Noonan and Ben Johnson deserve a special thanks for the fine golf tournament on November 2nd at Randolph Municipal Golf Course. From pre-football game activities to outside chapter house social gatherings, our cohesiveness has never been better! Our winter formal was held at the El Conquistador.
ter, we ran two, six-week overlapping classes. The advantage of having two classes is that it gives the freshmen extra time to get used to college life and to witness all the benefits of being Greek. It also allows the members of the first class, who mostly live in dorms, to recruit beyond the official Rush Week. For our first try we initiated 14 men of the Gamma Class and have a strong Delta Class as well! Our softball team was the top Greek team and took second place overall. With the help of the team, we took second place in ADPi’s philanthropy event. For our second Annual Delta Chi Golf Tournament we’ve teamed up with the American Heart Association and are hoping to raise a lot of money for them. Last year we raised $2,000 for Save the Family. The colony would like to thank Nancy Wolett for the countless hours she has worked to help set up this year ’s tournament as well as last year’s.
AUBURN Our annual Kimball Classic Alumni Golf Tournament proved to be an excellent way for our active brothers and alumni to bond and share stories of our Delta Chi experiences. Our White Carnation Ball was held in New Orleans. Coming up in the
spring, we have charity events planned for our local children’s group, Project Uplift. Also, we are currently in the process of updating our e-mail address book so would all Auburn alumni send an email to Auburn_delta_chi@yahoo.com.
BALL STATE In collaboration with the Kappa Deltas, our Hog Roast raised $1,000 for a former Ball State student diagnosed with leukemia. This spring we’ll hold our annual Canned Food Drive, which benefits the homeless and other underprivileged families. We will also be going with the Alpha Chi Omegas on Valentine’s Day to a local retirement home to reminisce and spend time with the residents.
BEHREND Our creative rush ideas and soccer tournament brought in the most initiates of any fraternity last fall with a solid eight. We also had our most successful semi-formal, held at Tommy’s in Edinboro. The following week the biannual retreat was held at Matt Taylor’s land. At this event we had the largest turnout of alumni to date. Rob Smith has revamped the web site this year, and it has been helpful for getting in touch with alumni and attracting new associates. We won the campus “Service Award” this year for

our outstanding efforts in freshman move-in and the JDF walk.
BOWLING GREEN After receiving our charter in April, we started this year by accepting thirteen new members, one of the biggest associate classes on campus. Our B-Team football squad went undefeated until the playoffs. Our A-Team softball, A- and B-Team ultimate Frisbee, and handball intramural teams have also turned out stellar records. For our annual Parents’ Weekend, our parents experienced a day of fun, which included lunch at a local restaurant, a short awards ceremony, and a BGSU football game! All of the parents were pleased to see us doing so well and are extremely excited to see what may lie ahead for us. In February we hosted the Region VI Regional Conference. We also are currently recruiting, as recruitment is a never-ending job for each man! We would also like to thank Chris Johnson for his excellent recruitment presentation and all his help.
BRYANT We came back this fall with 18 men and initiated four. One of our biggest community service projects was our annual dunk tank at the Homecoming football game. Brothers, as well as two Resident Directors, took their turns in the tank to help raise $200 for the Dire Emergency Relief Fund of Rhode Island. Later in the fall we teamed up with Delta Zeta for our annual Swing-A-Thon to support the Gaulledette School for the Blind. We once again teamed up with Delta Zeta at the end of the semester for a penny war, at which we raised $50 more for the Dire Emergency Relief Fund. This year we combined our Fall Formal in Woonsocket, RI with Alumni Weekend.
CAL POLY We began the fall quarter by pinning a 22-man class. Our first annual Founders’ Day Ball and Pinning Party was a big event
with nearly 150 attendees. Our two exchanges were with Alpha Phi and Gamma Phi Beta. On the philanthropy side, we have been innovative and successful. Our continuing Adopt-a-Highway Program was recognized as an Outstanding Clean-up program by the State of California. The weekend before Thanksgiving we also hosted our first annual Matthew Cirimele Tennis Invitation at which we raised $1,500 for the Cure Autism Now Foundation. Named for the brother of one of our actives, it was a rousing success with nearly 50 players and doubles teams playing. Intramurals are where we are really beginning to shine, with two first place trophies in softball and bowling and a fourth place in football. Finally, we signaled the end of the fall quarter with our annual Thanksgiving Dinner, which was a great time.
CENTRAL MISSOURI During Greek Week 2002 we received the prestigious Five Star Cup, which is given to the chapter with the most well-rounded scholarship, community service, brotherhood, and involvement on campus. We also received the best new member and member program award, and Phil Travis won the Greek God award. To celebrate, we hosted a party with the winners of the sorority Five Star Cup, the women of Sigma Sigma Sigma. We initiated 15 new members this fall, bringing our active number up to 53. With our increased numbers, we filled our house and received a substantial reimbursement check from university housing. We also raised $650 with the Delta Zetas in our annual philanthropy event for the American Cancer Society. Homecoming turned out well, as we participated in events with Alpha Gamma Delta. Our float placed second in the parade competition, and “B” R. J. Marrero finished among the top eight finalists for Homecoming King.
Bryant brothers hanging out at the Dunk Tank at Homecomimg. CHICO We started the fall as the largest fraternity. In intramurals we took first place positions in soccer, volleyball, and bowling. This puts us in great position to bring home The Greek Cup. Our annual Parents’ Weekend Banquet was held at The House with a delicious catered dinner. We all had a great time meeting and getting to know everyone’s parents and siblings. We’ve had no shortage of philanthropy events. We participated in Alpha Delta Pi’s philanthropy event and won by donating the most of any Greek organization. We also organized a canned food drive and were able to deliver boxes of food to the local homeless center. We took part in St. Jude’s Hospital “Up All Night” fundraiser, which raised money to cure children’s cancer. In Greek Week we teamed up with the Alpha Gamma Deltas and took top honors in the “Fun Without Alcohol Fair” with our Harry Potter theme. We were also able to get a new web site that includes current news, pictures of chapter events, and alumni weekend information. New content is being added weekly. Check it out at: www.geocities.com\ chico_delta_chi.
wasn’t clear that we going to become anything more than an interest group bearing the name of Delta Chi. But with the help of ABT president Craig Cook ’66 and Dave Alcock ’98, our fledgling colony gained strength and recognition among CU’s Greeks. Our first event was the annual Homecoming parade, in which we were paired with Pi Kappa Alpha and Alpha Omicron Pi. We contributed a great amount of time and effort that helped in our placing second in the parade. By the time our lettered officers were appointed, our colony boasted 27 associates. It was then that we knew that we were going to be a strong group on campus. Our next task was to reach out to our brothers to the north, brothers from the CSU Colony and the brothers from the UNC Chapter. Together, they initiated our associates into the bond of Delta Chi. Soon we hope to get more alumni interested in our colony and re-establish a link between the old Colorado Chapter and our new colony. We have come a long way in a few short months thanks, in large part, to all those alumni who supported us: Craig Cook ID ’68; Dave Alcock ’98, Matt Rettagliata ’97; Jason Russell ’98, Daniel Chung ’99, and all the members of the ABT.
COLORADO COLONY Our recent expansion was more than just a success, it was a great stride in re-establishing Delta Chi on the Boulder campus. When we first started, it

planned our first annual Founders’ Day Golf Tournament, which took place on October 13. The scramble event included 20 alumni, actives, friends and family. The tournament would not have been such a success if it weren’t for Bill Ballbrock, who made a generous $500 contribution to the tournament. The day was a huge success. The same week included Colorado State’s Homecoming festivities. The men of the colony spent the greater part of the week participating in building the Homecoming float with Alpha Tau Omega and Kappa Alpha Theta. “Fourth of July in the Fall” was chosen as the theme for the float to show the team’s patriotism and love for the country. Another theme of the float included “Stop Hate” signs on all sides to create awareness that hate will not be tolerated at CSU. After the parade we held a barbecue and enjoyed the Homecoming football game.
Parents finally had a chance to see what Delta Chi at Denison is all about. We hope that this spring we will be able to have a grand chartering banquet that will allow alumni from Denison to come back to restart a grand tradition. Our intramural flag football team started off strong and gave us a third place finish in the playoffs. At the beginning of the fall, we went on a camping trip that allowed us to review the goals we initially set when we re-colonized. We stressed that rush was crucial, so this past semester we gave out four bids to upperclassmen who we felt would help strengthen the fraternity. To finish off the semester, we had a date party that had an 80’s Miami-Vice theme where brothers and their dates, dressed in resale shop clothes, showed off their moves on the dance floor. It was a great way to wind down a busy semester.
We are proud to say that, for the second year in a row, we have won Delta Gamma’s Anchor Splash. We managed to raise thousands of dollars in competition for the title. Academically we placed second with a 3.02 GPA. Our annual parents’ weekend dinner was attended by over 15 families.
This past semester we resurrected many old traditions and started several new ones. On the social scene, we brought back Ranch Dance, our cowboy-theme informal. A huge bonfire and a mechanical bull were the main attractions of the evening, helping to make Ranch
Dance one of the most talkedabout parties on campus. We also revived our ABT, with several new members joining the board. The new members, along with our Housing Corporation, have begun plans to make important improvements to the house in the near future. Old Gold Weekend was also a big success with an activealumni golf scramble, The Kimball Open, which we plan to make an annual event. This year’s winning foursome consisted of John Scatterday ’50, G.R. Danielson ’50, W. Craig Chamberlin ’51, and Mark Floyd ’03. In addition, we had a reception at the house during which we presented the second annual DePauw Delta Chi of the Year Award to George Obear ’30. Brother Obear has shown outstanding commitment and dedication to the fraternity, both internationally and here at DePauw, for which we are very grateful. The award we presented to him is commemorated by a plaque, which will hang on our parlor wall, as encouragement for others to strive to be as dedicated as he has been.
DUQUESNE Last fall we initiated eight men. As the chapter grew, Delta Chi was still mourning the loss of Nicholas B. Isaacs, and we have started a scholarship fund in his honor.
After supporting Jacob Becker in his successful bid to be crowned Homecoming King, we focused on Greek Week. Delta Chi was strong in all the events, and coming in first place in the relay race, blood drive donations, and charity contributions helped collect toward Nick’s memorial fund. We competed with ten other fraternities and finished the week by securing a win in the Formal Sing competition, where Jeff Bucci, Jacob Becker, Jeff Wickert, Patrick Patterson, Matthew McClard, and Greg Abdalah performed Fovens Mater. In the second segment of Greek Sing we were paired with the Delta Zetas and performed a medley of songs with an anti-violence theme that won the judges over. This is the third year in a row Delta Chi has won Greek Week, and we will not settle for anything less next fall. We have also supported the community with some unique philanthropy. We tidied up Bigelow Blvd. in front of the Mellon Arena, part of the Pennsylvania Adopt-a-Highway Program and aided in the City of Pittsburgh Light Up Night by passing out schedules and directing citizens to events. We have led by example in Greek Life at Duquesne. This past fall, Delta Chi raised the bar even further.
EAST CAROLINA We have successfully completed both of our annual fall events with outstanding participation at Homecoming as well as Parents’ Weekend. We shared our parents’ day with the lovely ladies of Alpha Phi and thoroughly impressed everyone with the catered lunch and evening activities. There was also an exceptional alumni attendance at Homecoming, as we all took time to reacquaint ourselves and enjoy the weekend together.

We concentrated most of our efforts last fall on philanthropy, fund-raising, and athletics. For philanthropy we donated our time to the local
elementary school, helping children to read through the Read to Succeed Program. We also helped with the Red Cross blood drive. For fund-raising we raised over $4,500. We also worked the concession stands at the West Virginia football games and raised money through our annual Delta Chi Lip Sync, which again was the highest attended student function of the year. In athletics we finished in the middle of the pack for flag football. Our strength though is in basketball, where our team is in third place and ready to make a strong push in the playoffs to win it all.
FULLERTON Last spring we were finally granted our charter. During the spring semester we also proved our dominance in the Greek system by winning three out of four banners in Greek Week, including the most sought out banner, OVERALL CHAMPIONS. After a great spring, we had high expectations for fall rush and were able to pin 23 new associates. It is our biggest class out of our last five years. At the first annual Delta Zeta turtle bowl, we were able to sweep the competition. We had two active teams and one associate member team. We took first, second and third place.
GANNON T h a n k s t o t h e over 30 alumni who made it for our Bastille celebration. As part of the recent house renovations, the downstairs was re-carpeted, and we added two new couches for the living room. Furthermore, we have received enough donations from alumni to wire our house with DSL, and we would like to thank all of the alumni who helped us with this project. We would like to congratulate Pat Connaroe, who was first runner-up for Homecoming King this fall. Our float placed third during the parade. As part of Gannon University’s Give Day, we
helped clean up the local community center and a local park.
GEORGIA TECH Homecoming was topped off with a third place finish out of 33 fraternities. The festivities included brothers devoting countless hours to create a colorful display, a repeat victory in Mock Rock, and a fully mechanized contraption. Craig Gustin generously entered his 1967 Jaguar Roadster in the Classic Car competition, finishing an amazing second place. Thanks also to Robert Stachow for organizing most of the campus-wide events as the IFC Homecoming Chair. After the weeklong events, the associates provided a wonderful luncheon for the attending alumni. Following the luncheon, the alumni challenged the undergraduates to a friendly game of football, at which the alumni came out victorious 21-14. Overall the week was packed with fun and brotherhood for all. We also had the honor of initiating the 47 founding fathers of the Georgia Southern Colony. Twelve brothers and three alumni traveled down to Georgia Southern and had a wonderful time welcoming these men into Delta Chi.
HAYWARD This year ’s Turkey Day football game was filled with a lot of excitement and great plays. Though the score was lopsided in favor of the alumni, everyone gave it their all. We are updating our alumni database and are requesting that you please email your current information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOBART Beyond winning Delta Chi’s most community hours served, we were co-winners of the Hobart President’s Cup, which is given to the “best fraternity” on campus. We are also pleased to congratulate Arthur Medici ’71, for his appointment to the Board of Trustees at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
DePauw “A” Steve Robinson, George Obear ’30 and his daughter, Judy Bunn. George is holding his “DePauw Delta Chi of the Year” Award. IDAHO Our house is full to capacity with 60 members and associates living in, not to mention a sizeable out-of-house membership. Things we are looking forward to for the remainder of the year are Polyester Wedding, held in March, and the 68 th Annual Pirates’ Dance, held in April; in addition to some philanthropic, community and alumni relations activities. If you would like more specific information about events, please e-mail “E” Joe Lasuen at alumnirelationatidaho @hotmail.com.
ILLINOIS Alumni attendance was outstanding for our Homecoming pig roast. We would like to thank everyone who attended, with special thanks going out to the Alumni Board for its help and participation. We are in the process of updating and improving our web site and alumni database and ask our alumni to e-mail this information to jholtzma @uiuc.edu. This year we have participated in a number of philanthropy events, and we took fourth place in Kappa Alpha Theta’s “Theta Hoops” basketball tournament. This April, we are planning a Powder Puff Football Tournament for our philanthropy event. The money we make will be donated to a charitable cause. Last fall we made visits to a retirement home
for a Root Beer Float Night and helped make improvements at a hospital for the mentally challenged.
IOWA During the weekend of October 11-13, we celebrated our 90th year of continuous operation at Iowa. Celebrations were kicked off by an Alumni Night on Friday attended by over 50 alumni. At Saturday’s tailgate the house was full of generations of Delta Chis who enjoyed the reminiscing almost as much as the whole pig we roasted. At the formal banquet Saturday night, the speakers included “A” Rich Oloffson, who gave a stirring speech reminding us all of the permanence of the brotherhood into which we have entered. Over 200 people attended the 90 th celebration, and over 50 years of Delta Chi were represented in one room, at one time, for one shining moment. The celebration ended with an alumni ceremonial breakfast Sunday morning. The 90 th celebration served as a reminder of why we treasure this chapter, and it gave us the opportunity, in the stories of triumph and tragedy, success and failure, to understand a little more about the strength of Delta Chi, our bond and the Chapter’s membership over the years.
KANSAS We were fortunate to have Chancellor Robert Hemingway ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2003 7
Frostburg brothers displaying 11 of the 12 awards presented at the Greek Awards! over for dinner one Tuesday night in October. He explained to us that we were the first fraternity or sorority to which he had been invited as a dinner guest in twenty years! Our Dad’s Day was a big hit, thanks to our Traditions Chair, Rhett Elder ’03. During the day we watched our Jayhawks play host to our in-state rivals, the Kansas State Wildcats. Even though we were not victorious, we all had a blast spending the weekend with our fathers. Thanks to Recruitment Chairs Jace Gianetti ’04 and Thomas Hammond ’04, we had 29 freshmen sign this year. After getting involved with the Brookcreek Learning Center last spring, we decided to cosponsor a car wash with Alpha Gamma Delta as a philanthropy event to raise money for their cause. Thanks to a big showing we were able to present the Brookcreek Learning Center with a check for $2,500.
KENT STATE Our growth continued this past fall with ten new associates. Philanthropy is going well as we start the fifth year of our Toys-4-Tots drive for the Akron Marine Corps. For the second year, the Akron/Canton Regional Food Bank chose us to valet park for them to earn extra money for our chapter. Homecoming was a big success this year, with a great turn8 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2003
out by our alumni and parents. The parents helped us out greatly with setting up for the event and with preparing the food. Being paired with Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority and Sigma Chi Fraternity for Homecoming, we won second place for Greek floats in the parade. We are also making many changes to our house with new carpeting and furniture for the living room and many other improvements planned.
KETTERING-B With the help of several alumni and relatives, our chapter room is now completely remodeled. In addition, our laundry room was repainted and a large shelving area was added. We would also like to thank all of our alumni for sponsoring a Cedar Point trip for this fall’s rush.
LONG BEACH This past year we maintained the highest GPA on campus, as well as having the largest number of members maintaining a 4.0. We are anxiously anticipating the initiation of our current class of 16 pledges, the largest class on campus. Not only have we led our IFC with a strong president and two executive board members, but we also hold multiple positions in school government, including seven elected officials on the Senate and Execu-
tive Boards. As a testament to this leadership, we have been awarded the Campus Involvement Award, recognizing us for our impressive involvement in the various aspects of CSULB life, politics and business. We continue to be one of the largest, most involved, most respected and socially present fraternities that the campus has ever seen, while consistently upholding those virtues befitting a Delta Chi. Socially we still enjoy some of the best events, including our second annual “Great Grape Stomp” at which we stomped 4,000 pounds of grapes in a kiddie pool, as well as our “DelTiki” Philanthropy at which all the sororities compete in “inner-tube” waterpolo! Check us out at www.deltachilongbeach.com.
In addition to participating in over three brotherhood service events, we can also boast that we have the best GPA on campus as well as the best new member GPA for two years running. Other big news is the construction of a new Delta Chi house. Through the generous donations of our alumni, we will be able to move into a new house in the fall of 2003.
finally being able to once again live together under one roof. We recently painted the interior of the house red and buff, and we are investigating the possibility of painting a mural of our history on the basement walls. Having a house again has helped our chapter in many ways. Our rush numbers improved after a few trying semesters, and we initiated six brothers this fall. Our athletics program has begun to re-claim its dominance, as we finished third overall in spring 2002 out of 23 fraternities. Jason Wright was the IFC tennis champion, and both of our flag football squads went deep into the playoffs. In addition, we have been involved in philanthropy, sending brothers to the annual Dance Marathon to raise money for pediatric AIDS research. We also sponsored a Greek-wide guest speaker on drunk driving and raised over $400 at our Halfway-to-Mardi Gras party by selling beaded necklaces in order to sponsor Chris Conwell in the AIDS Marathon this spring in New Orleans. We are having lots of fun, as we have had numerous social events with sororities, and we hosted a Graffiti Party, in addition to our Mardi Gras Party. Our fall formal was held at Wisp ski resort, a fitting end to an exciting semester. We are proud to say that we teamed up with Alpha Chi Omega and Theta Chi to win overall at Homecoming! As a match-up, we won in the categories of house decorating and crest drawing, a number of our brothers participated in the talent show, and we made it to the semifinals in both football and volleyball before being eliminated. Capping off the week, we had our annual alumni day festivities, featuring a barbecue to showcase our new house.
We succeeded in acquiring a new house after five years of being spread around College Park in apartments and single-family houses. Twenty-six brothers are having the time of their lives,
Thanks to the many alumni who gave donations during Homecoming, and a special thanks to Chuck Johnson ’92 for providing the funds for the purchase of new furni-
LOUISIANA TECH This year we managed to bring in 17 guys from rush. We have stayed constantly busy this year with exchanges, parties, and intramurals. We have successfully had exchanges with every sorority, and everyone enjoyed our annual Homecoming toga party. Our intramural flag football team placed second in its division. Finally, we planned our first ever associate/active member auction, at which members were auctioned off to some lucky lady.
ture in our front room. We also presented Jim Adams ’69 with the Meritorious Alumni award and thank him also for his support throughout the recent years. Our first annual Twister philanthropy raised $400 for Oxford Parks and Recreations. Members also participated in Jamboree, an all-Greek philanthropy that raised over $1,000 for our local school district and Greek Habitat for Humanity. We are also participating in the “Adopt a Block” and “Adopt a Highway” programs. Recently, we finished renovating and furnishing our alumni room. Semi-formal was held on a riverboat in Cincinnati. Scholastically, we had several members receive honors, including five members who qualified for the Order of Omega. After another strong finish in Greek Week, our intramural season has begun.
MICHIGAN STATE We welcomed over 85 alumni from the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s for our football game against California. Using the generous donations from those alumni, we have accumulated 80% of the funds needed to put Pergo floors through our entire house. We recently activated 16 new brothers, one of the largest classes on campus. We received the IFC’s All Sports Award for athletic excellence.
MISSOURI Last fall we experienced a phenomenal outpouring of alumni support. We kicked off the school year with our 50’s alumni reunion at Bill Brooks’ house. The event received the highest turnout of alumni in recent history. The kickoff barbecue was followed by everyone attending the Missouri football game. Ray Galbreth ’69 presented our House Corporation president John Kruse ’88 with the Fraternity’s Meritorious Service Award for his outstanding work in his positions on our House Corporation and ABT. We participated in Homecoming with Chi Omega and Phi Kappa Theta. This semester we paired for Greek Week with Gamma Phi Beta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon. We have brought back a chapter tradition of having sororities over for milk and cookies. Hayride and semiformal also filled the social and rush calendar for fall. Rush efforts still remain a top priority, with all our social events remaining open to potential members. In sports, our football and softball teams made
the playoffs, along with the bowling team finishing first. For the past few semesters our House Corporation has been focusing on house renovations. Thanks to its hard work we were able to begin school with a new kitchen, windows on the third floor have been replaced for better heating efficiency, and the second floor bathroom has had numerous renovations, including retiling of the showers. The carpet throughout the chapter house has also been replaced with help from alumni donations.
MONTCLAIR For fall rush we reserved the entire common area between our university’s biggest dormitories on move-in day and provided some great entertainment. We had a barbecue and a DJ for the new students. We also helped them move into their rooms and talked to their parents, which helped to quell any reservations they might have had about college or Greek life. In addition to the normal rush event schedule, we reserved a glass display case in our student center for students to view and learn about
what Delta Chi has to offer them. This allowed us to rush the commuter students who congregate in the student center but who do not usually frequent the dormitories. Homecoming went extremely well this year with a turnout of about 30 alumni. Also, we recently had an alumni vs. active members football game, which everyone enjoyed and which has helped bolster our younger alumni’s interest.
NEW MEXICO STATE Thanks to generous donations by Brian Kelley ’03 and Brian Nordquist ’00, we were able to complete the rock landscaping of the front yard. A new rush display was put together thanks to the team led by Anthony Madrid and Dennis Tyson. Fall began with the pinning of 11 associates. With football, intramurals, Founders’ Day, socials, community services and school; it was amazing that we got anything done. Founders’ Day was celebrated along with Homecoming, and we welcomed twelve alumni. We partied it up with socials like our first ever pajama-jam party and a pumpkin carving with Alpha Xi Delta.
MISSISSIPPI STATE For Homecoming, we held our annual barbecue Saturday evening and an Alumni-Active football game on Sunday at which the actives pulled through with the win. On the philanthropy scene, not only did we contribute with Greek Links and donate a Playstation 2 to a terminally ill child with the Kid’s Wish Network, we were also able to donate nearly $3,000 to the Sheriff Boy’s and Girl’s Ranch. This was done with the help of the ladies of Zeta Tau Alpha at our annual Haunted House. Be sure to check us out at www.msudeltachi.com.

Last fall we took 13 associates and initiated one father. That is the most we have seen in 15 years. We have initiated 12 of those men and already have at least five prospective men for spring.
coming this year was also successful. Taking second overall for our float, we all worked hard throughout the week. In addition to these achievements, we brought in an additional 15 members and have grown to nearly 50 brothers.
Being involved in the community has been a major goal this year. The most recent philanthropy event we have participated in was a “lock in” in which we raised over $1,100 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. We also participate yearly in a field day held at local Monfort Elementary, where we volunteer for various events and each get a chance to help out local school children. The last philanthropy event planned for the fall was a food and clothing drive held for the needy before Thanksgiving. Over the recent summer, we made improvements, such as re-paving the sidewalk leading up to the house with large, red Delta Chi letters engraved in the front of the walkway. We also constructed large light posts that shine at the front of the lawn so that our letters can always be seen! Also, after renovating the garage and undergoing major exterior painting, we feel that our house looks better than ever. We have done well in fall sports, including softball and football. Participation in Home-
On August 13, 2002 the House Corporation closed on the purchase of the former Delta Upsilon house. This past Halloween, the members went to assist in the Kiwanis Haunted House. We also participated in a TrickOr-Treat for canned goods and mass garbage clean-ups around campus and spent time at the local nursing home in DeKalb playing Bingo with the residents. Our latest fundraiser has focused on the purchase of the new house. Much renovation is still needed, so we have been offering an opportunity for alumni, parents, friends, and other D-Chi’s to purchase a brick that will have their own personalized inscription on it! We have received a few donations thus far, and a few from other chapters as well. If you are interested in donating, you can find all of the information you will need at http:// www.niudchi.org.
We also recruited 17 new associates this past fall.
NORTHWESTERN Delta Chi’s float won first prize in the Homecoming parade. The theme was “Under the Big Top”, and Delta Chi joined in with an elephant float surrounded by jugglers, marionettes, and magicians. Charles Sharp and Leo Lamontagne were in charge of the giant project. As usual, the float was finished just in time, and the paint had barely dried by the time the sisters of Delta Sigma Theta arrived with costumes and make-up. Asked about the victory, Leo told the Daily Northwestern, “Either way we would be happy, because it was a brotherhood-building event,” and, “We built the best float we could and had a blast doing it.” Our fall philanthropy, Earthball, raised $ 1,600 for charity. Our teams were made up of brothers and freshmen who had already shown interest in the chapter. A total of seventy participants made the event yet another success. Earthball is hosted annually in co-operation with the women of Delta Zeta. Paul Balash and Brendan Finnerty were in charge. Finally, this fall’s date party was a visit to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Social chairs Jason Lorenzen and Dan Saddawi-Konefka organized the trip. This was followed by a late dinner at the Exchequer Pub in Chicago. Jason Lorenzen commented about this successful event, “The girls loved it!”

With the fall quarter already history, we showed our true brotherhood by hosting brothers from the Denison, Washington State, Ball State and Indiana Chapters and recruiting a great associate member class of eight men.
We won Tri-Delt’s “Just for Kicks” soccer philanthropy event. We also had a strong showing at an IFC sponsored event when we helped clean and fix up lower income housing. We participated once again in all autumn intramural sports and fielded a co-ed team with the women of Alpha Phi. We also organized “Choices”, which helps battered women and children celebrate Christmas, with Alpha Chi Omega. Finally, Jerry Badstron, Jr. starred on “As the World Turns” as part of the Watch Us If You Can bus tour. Many thanks to “BB” Steve Bock for working hard as our advisor for this past year.
PENN STATE For Penn State’s annual Dance Marathon, we, along with the sisters of the Sigma Delta Tau, have already raised well over $25,000 and plan on breaking the $100,000 mark by the time of the event. For Homecoming, the number of alumni coming back nearly doubled since 2001, and due to these impressive turnouts and generous contributions, a great deal of progress has been made to improve the condition of our house. Our football team made it all the way to the semi-final round in intramurals. T h i s y e a r ’ s P a re n t s ’ Weekend is already being planned and will be held once again in early April. This traditional event consists of appetizers and dinner, followed by an informational seminar explaining the benefits of Delta Chi to our parents and families!

ROWAN We just completed a successful Homecoming with Sigma Sigma Sigma. We have also been busy doing various types of service projects and campus events. The most recent event, which also proved to be a great brotherhood event, was working the haunted hayride at Six Flags Great Adventure.
SOUTHEAST MISSOURI We started the year off in a new house and pinned 12 associates. We capped off rush week with a bid day bash co-sponsored with Sigma Phi Epsilon. We finished up intramural softball in second place in the men’s all-Greek bracket and took second with Alpha Xi Delta in the coed bracket. For Homecoming, we were teamed up with Sigma Sigma Sigma and Lambda Chi Alpha.
For Homecoming, alumni from recent graduates reaching back all the way to the 1940’s came to the house to celebrate, rekindle old relationships, and watch the USC football game. We reached the playoffs of USC’s Ironman competition among fraternities in football, basketball, soccer, and softball, and also had strong showings in golf, volleyball, and swimming. We had another successful fall rush, bringing in 15 new men.
STEPHEN F. AUSTIN We started the fall semester off by recruiting 14 associates. Founders’ Day proved to be a strong bonding experience, and Homecoming proved to be a great success as we witnessed Justin Fox and Derek Hicks become dukes of their respective classes. We also held numerous social activities, including Homecoming weekend with Chi Omega. We had two Woodsies, a “National Lampoon” exchange with Zeta Tau Alpha and our best brotherhood retreat ever.
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA Participation at our Founders’ Day dinner, held on Columbus Day of every year, was high among the chapters and local alumni.
SYRACUSE COLONY With the recruitment of six members for our Alpha Class, we are happy to have taken another step towards
chartering but understand that spring recruitment must be more fruitful. For Homecoming, we partnered with Alpha Chi Omega and Kappa Delta Rho. The theme of “Home is where the Orange is” had to be incorporated into a skit, chant, house decorating contest and banner. Our team won the skit competition and tied for first in the chant and won Homecoming!! Our first philanthropy event was also held this past October. Delta Chi’s human foosball was wonderfully organized but was cancelled due to weather. The makeup event, bowling, took place in November. We participated in three philanthropy events during the fall, placing second in Alpha Phi’s Gold Rush.
TARLETON We kicked off the fall with 11 associates and initiated ten. For our alumni, we hosted our First Annual Founders’ Day Party. We recognized attending alumni and awarded them gift certificates to a local restaurant. We also hosted a Homecoming Party with Milton Ramsey providing brisket and much more. In intramurals, we lost the Greek League flag football championionship by one point to our rival. The co-ed
Last spring, we participated in a joint venture with Zeta Tau Alpha to raise money for the Austin Breast Cancer Resource Center. Our project involved selling Mother ’s Day cards two weeks prior to the date. We split the chapter into teams of five with a group leader and had a goal to sell five cards per person. Together with Zeta Tau Alpha, we raised a little over $5,000, with our efforts accounting for over $3,000.
TEXAS A&M Behind Greek Week chairman Charlie Robins, we were able to have a successful and fun experience throughout the week. We were teamed with Kappa Delta and participated in several educational, philanthropic, and social events in order to earn points. We held a substantial lead throughout the week but unfortunately came in second. After winning back the Twelfth Man Cup, which is given to the top Greek intramural team and has been held by Delta Chi eight of the last 13 years, we have been doing nothing but winning. Delta Chi is in the run for the All University Cup, given to the top flag football team, as well.
VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH In October, several brothe r s p l a y e d a b i g ro l e i n starting a new colony at the C o l l e g e o f Wi l l i a m a n d Mary by initiating their 19 founding fathers.

Virginia Tech brothers in front of their chapter house. We had tremendous success with rush with 11 new associates, thanks to Rush Chairman Austin Cohen.
VIRGINIA TECH We installed new hardwood floors and painted the exterior and interior walls of our house. We pinned 20 associates, which is by far the largest class on campus. They have already participated in the Zeta Tau Alpha Wiffleball Tournament and helped win the Sigma Kappa Kickball Tournament. We also helped paint the exterior porch for the local YMCA house and are working with the Virginia Tech Women’s Center to set up guest speakers to speak out against sexual harassment of women on campus. Our web site manager continues to improve the quality and content of our web page at www.vtdchi.com. Our alumni and brothers are asked to update their contact information.
WASHINGTON We continued our philanthropy work that began last spring when we volunteered at the Beat the Bridge charity 5K run benefiting diabetes research. Philanthropy chair Brian Venable recently arranged for us to volunteer to clear away shrubbery to create trails around Puget Sound. He also arranged for us to paint “No Dumping” 12 ∆X Quarterly Winter/Spring 2003
signs next to drains that run to local rivers. Alan Hambelton and Adam Siegel have been given the honor of Pi Omicron Sigma, an award given to outstanding Greek community leaders.
WEST CHESTER Last spring’s Greek Week culminated with our digging in and winning the tug-o-war competition and being named the champions of Greek Week with the help of our partner, Zeta Tau Alpha. Our basketball team went undefeated and earned the IFC cup. We had the largest associate class in the spring, and our brothers received the third highest GPA. This fall began with an outstanding rush. It has also been full of great sports moments, as both our flag football and floor hockey teams are undefeated so far this season. We took second place for Homecoming this year with the sisters of Delta Zeta.
Homecoming revived the legacies of Delta Chi past with stories that raised smiles on the faces of young and old alike. The E-board spoke, delighting everyone with construction plans for our future house and other goal oriented activities. The enthusiasm of the gathered alumni toward the improvement of the chapter gave everyone a proud feeling. We initiated eight members who, throughout the fall, had developed a serenade that was rated the best by all sororities. Delta Chi earned “Fraternity of the Month” for November. This was due partially to our Powder Puff philanthropy event. This is a flag football competition that all sororities compete in for charity.
WESTERN ONTARIO Last fall, we recruited eight men. With most of our Founding Fathers graduating in April, we are hoping for another successful rush this semester.
WINDSOR After a near-death experience in 2001, the chapter is alive and well. At the beginning of the 2001-02 year, the chapter was reduced to a
mere four members. However, with lots of hard work a n d d e d i c a t i o n b y c o re members, we have been able to climb back to a 20m a n ro s t e r a f t e r t h e completion of this semester. This fall semester we will have initiated another seven brothers on our climb back to the top of the Wi n d s o r G re e k s y s t e m , where we rightfully belong. We would like to thank our past two consultants, Marquez Brown and Dave Pohlman, for their constructive advice that we are continually implementing in our young chapter. Our goal is to have an active membership of 40 brothers by the end of fall next year. In addition, we have been making a name for Delta Chi on campus through our philanthropic events and academic achievements. One example w a s o u r j o i nt Halloween event that we held with Phi Sigma Sigma to provide a fun-filled activity day for a first grade class from a local school. We are also glad to report that our GPA is higher than the campus average, and we look forward to bettering ourselves in the future.
WESTERN ILLINOIS In flag football we successfully played into the first round of the playoffs while our basketball team dominated straight through the playoffs into the finals. We played hard but came up short, finishing second overall in the Greek division. For Homecoming, we pulled off a second place overall finish. We are currently working on preparations for our tenyear anniversary.

Capitol Hill Alumni Chapter
Congressmen Miller and Stump Honored Over 65 Brothers, both alumni and undergraduates, attended the Delta Chis take over Capitol Hill event sponsored by Florida Congressman John Mica in honor of Delta Chis Dan Miller and Bob Stump, who are retiring from Congress. Not only will there be two fewer Delta Chis in the United States House of Representatives, but more importantly, America will be losing two dedicated public servants who together have over 35 years of experience. Both however, took very different paths to Capitol Hill. During the reception, Congressmen Miller and Mica talked about their experiences in Congress and how Delta Chi helped shape them into national leaders. Representatives Miller and Mica also spoke about their days at the University of Florida, where Representative Miller was Representative Mica’s fraternity big brother. Elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1992, Dan Miller formerly was a college professor and busiDan Miller FL ’64 nessman. He taught statistics at the graduate and undergraduate levels at Louisiana State University, Georgia State University, and the University of South Florida in Sarasota. Following his teaching career, Miller became a suc-
cessful entrepreneur in southwest Florida. He encourages current undergraduates to get involved, volunteer, and succeed in whatever career they choose. “I was never in politics or even studied it in college until I ran for Congress in 1992. I consider myself a citizen legislator who committed to serve only ten years and return home and participate in my community.” Miller served on the very powerful House Appropriations Committee and the Committee on Government Reform. As a member of the Appropriations Committee, he served on the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Subcommittee; Commerce, Justice, State and Judiciary Subcommittee; and Military Construction Subcommittee. As a member of the Committee on Government Reform, he served on the Civil Service, Census and Agency Organizations Subcommittee; Criminal Justice, Drug Policy and Human Resources Subcommittee; and the Government Efficiency, Financial Management and Intergovernmental Relations Subcommittee. In keeping with his promise of self-imposed term limits of a maximum of ten years service, Miller stepped down from his seat in the House in January 2003. Congressman Stump began his elected public service life when he served four terms in the Arizona House of Representatives from 1959-1967, and five terms in the Arizona State Senate, from 1967 to 1976.
He served as President of the Arizona State Senate from 1975 to 1976. He was first elected to the 95th Congress on November 3, 1976. He was re-elected 12 times to the 96th through the 107th Congresses. In 2001, he became the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. He also spent 22 years on the House Veterans Committee, making him one of the most senior members of the full committee, and also served as the Vice-Chairman of the Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation. In his spare time, Brother Stump serves on the Board of Trustees for the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation; National Guard Youth Foundation, Honorary Board of Directors; Congressional Air Power Caucus; Congressional Fire Services Caucus; Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus; Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus; House Biotechnology Caucus; Reserve Components Caucus; Taiwan Caucus; and was a founding member of the Western Caucus. Recently Stump has been recognized by numerous organizations for his dedication to improving public policy and America’s quality of life. A few of his recent awards include the: 2001 American Legion Distinguished Public Service Award; 2000 Americans for Tax Reform “Hero of the Taxpayer Award”; NFIB “Guardian of Small Business” Award; 1998 VFW Congressional Award;
NCOA 1994 L. Mendel Rivers Award for Legislative Action; U. S. Chamber of Commerce “Spirit of Enterprise” Award; American ExPrisoners of War 1995 Barbed Wire Award; AMVETS 1994 Silver Helmet Congressional Award; Watchdogs of the Tre a s u r y ’ s “Golden Bulldog” Aw a r d ; American Farm Bureau “Golden P l o w ” Award; NaBob Stump AZST ’51 tional Taxpayers’ Union “Taxpayers Friend” Award (15 times); 1995 FFA “Arizona Agriculturist of the Year”; 1996 Vietnam Veterans Association “Legislator of the Year” Award; and 1998 60 Plus Association “Guardian of Senior Rights” Award. Stump stepped down in January 2003 in order to spend more time with his family and due to undisclosed health concerns. From our founding meeting last October with just eight brothers in attendance, we now have over 125 members.
