If the fraternity system ever comes to an untimely end, what do you think the autopsy will show? For a long time I thought that the death certificate would read, "Killed by hostile faculty and administration officials." I've had to change my mind. They're responsible for a few chapter deaths in some fraternities, and have made life more difficult for quite a few others, but they alone can't even stop the growth of the movement. I've also discarded another popular theory-that one day the fraternity system will collapse because of the apathy and disinterest of undergraduates. This may cause the loss of a few chapters, too, but it will never bring down the system. This year's Leadership Conference in Columbia proved more than ever that an important and valuable segment of the undergraduate population is intensely interested in preserving and strengthening the fraternity system as a viable part of college life. Where the danger lies, I'm convinced, is at the top . _ Fraternity officers and administrators must understand the needs and the wishes of the undergraduate community. They must recognize the elements of college and public life that concern undergraduates. They must accept the fact that the fraternity of the 70's is not and cannot be the fraternity of the 30's or the 40's, or even the 50's or the 60's. The fraternity of the 70's will indeed be far different from the one most of us recall and identify with. But, if it meets the needs of the coming generations of undergraduates, if it assists in the development of character of the members, if it conforms to the standards of the college community, and if it still provides companionship and pleasure for its members, then it will continue to flourish and to have value. Delta U, it seems to me, is doing a better job than most fraternities in gearing its philosophy, its organization, and its operations to the tempo of today's campus and today's societal structure. So long as it continues to be in the forefront in these areas, it will continue to be an important fraternity and a valuable adjunct to the educational community. Fraternally yours,


October 1969


A Time jar Excellence!

135th Convention and Leadershicp Conference Attracts Record Attendance in Columbia AT

the first session of the 135th Anniversary International Leadership Conference and Convention, attention was focused on the chapters of Delta Upsilon located in Canada. To kick off the five-day program, which lasted from August 26 through August 30, representatives from all six Canadian chapters met to discuss common problems. The University of Missouri in Columbia was the site of the Leadership Conference focused on an inspiring theme-"A Time for Excellence." Field staff members Robert S. Marzec and Michael F. Archbold, who, along with officers, met with the Canadian representatives, challenged them to be aware of the changing times and to respond to the new trends of the Fraternity and its members. The differences between chapters in Canada and the United States were pointed out by the field staff members and discussed by the participants. Specific ways that the International Fraternity could be most helpful stimulated a good round of discussion. Also on the first day was an Orientation Seminar for colonies and petitioning groups. Discussing the necessary charter standards and requirements with the re'p resentatives from eleven interested groups was William H. Bried of the Fraternity field staff. He covered maturity, membership, size, growth plan, finances, alumni support, scholarship, housing, faculty initiates, and necessary college and IFC approvals.


While delegates, alternates, and other chapter officers continued to pour into Columbia, Missouri. during the afternoon, Fraternity officers and staff members met with representatives of chapters which had fallen below the minimum standards of the Fraternity and therefore were on a Project Chapter status with the Undergraduate Activities Committee. Personal interviews also were set up for the Canadian chapters and the colonies and petitioning groups. These interviews, as well as all of the afternoon sessions, had been moved from their original meeting places in the Mark Twain Dormitory to the Arts and Letters building because the air conditioning had broken down in the dormitory. Most of the 275 undergraduates who attended the Conference and Convention arrived in time to gather


In attendance were groups from the California State Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo; Colorado State University, Fort Collins; University of Delaware, Newark; University of Houston, Texas; Eastern Kentucky University, Richmond; and the University of Maine, Orono. Also representing interested fraternities were undergraduates from Marquette University, Milwaukee; University of Maryland, College Park; Central l'vIissouri State College, 'l\Tarrensburg; North Dakota State University, Fargo; and Wisconsin State University at Oshkosh. While exchanging new ideas, the representatives discussed their relations with their colleges and universities. The men also discussed the reporting forms and materials that are needed by the International Fraternity. The first two sessions of the Conference, both new this year, were very successful and acclaimed by the partici pan ts.


The leaders of the ClarilSon chatJter which won the "Sweepstakes T1'Ophy" this )le01' were also involved in winning the "Pledge Education Awanl" not many years ago. At that time the pledges maintained high scholarship and were among the most courteous, best inf01'l11ed, and highly motivated in the Fmternity. This tmdition ccl1'ried on as Harry W. McCobb jJresented the "SweetJstakes Tmphy" to James R. StJieche1' of the Clrnlison ehatJter, who peeks from behind the head of a stJectator.

at the Village Inn for an informal pizza supper and an evening of fellowship, On Wednesday morning the Leadership Conference Convocation set the pace for the intensive training of the three-day conference, Mrs. Helen Nowlis, Ph.D., of the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York, discussed the problem of "Drugs on Our College Campuses." One of the foremost authorities on harmful drugs, she offered advice that will help chapter leaders keep the drug problem out of the fraternity house. After pointing out the effects and dangers of harmful drugs, Professor Nowlis said, "Higher education is under serious attack. The younger generation is under attack. The one ready-made weapon is drugs. We are living in a chemically-dominated world and we'd jolly well better learn to live wisely in it." The undergraduates discussed her statements further in discussion groups and then came back together for a reaction panel.

center. Brother Bried also gave a slide presentation on the growth of Delta Upsilon over the past twenty years and compared DU growth with other competitive fraternities, At the Thursday evening banquet, recognition was given to Orville H. Read, Missouri '33, who is retiring' as editor of the DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY and president of the Fraternity, James C, McLeod, vice president of the Fraternity, paid tribute to Brother Read sayjng, "Tonight we honor a brother who definitely falls in that category of those who make things happen, and Delta Upsilon has reason indeed to be grateful." Dr. McLeod added, "This man, a product of one of the most distinguished schools of journalism in the nation, has kept DU in the minds and hearts of the brothers and before the Greek world with dignity, courage, and distinction," MERITORIOUS SERVICE AWARD

In his closing remarks, Dr, McLeod summed up the feelings of each and every DU member when he said, "Brother Read meets very fully what has become a classic definition of a gentleman as expressed by George Bernard Shaw; 'A gentleman is one who puts back into life a little more than he takes out.' Orville Read upset the balance of trade and Delta Upsilon is grateful that he is a brother." A Meritorious Service Award for "his devoted efforts to further the purposes of Delta Upsilon Fraternity" was presented to Brother Read by \Van-en R. Seering, president of the Missouri chapter, Brother Read served as chairman of the Board of Directors for five years and president of the Fraternity


Culminating the afternoon session was an eyecatching slide presentation, "Introduction to Goal Setting," by W. A. Butler, Jr., executive secretary of the Fraternity. The presentation gave the undergraduates insights into what planning help they could expect from the workshop seminars. The after-dinner speaker for Wednesday evening was an assistant football coach of the University of Missouri, Prentice Gautt. In addition to discussing the capabilities of the 1969 Tiger squad, he showed a film highlighting the 1968 Big Eight Conference. The first series of workshops followed the banquet. Each undergraduate was assigned to attend one of the eight workshops that would best help his chapter. The workshops continued Thursday morning and afternoon. A break in the workshop sessions came after lunch when Brother Butler explained the Delta Upsilon administrative review and alumni records DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

for two years in addition to the editorship of the QUARTERLY for the past twenty-two years. Friday morning provided an opportunity for undergraduates to get a capsule summary of each of the eight workshops. A hand-picked undergraduate representative at each workshop took notes and then presented a summary. A variety of activities filled the afternoon schedule. Convention committees met to add final touches to their motions and resolutions. At the same time, the Conference delegates had their choice of four other meetings. Host chapters for the 1969¡70 Provincial Conferences met to map their plans while others interested in opportunities to become Fraternity field secretaries attended the field secretary interest meeting. Brothers interested in the expansion opportunities and possible sites conferred with the Expansion Development Director. At the fourth workshop, Herbert E. Smith, who has worked with many IFCs and with the National Interfraternity Conference, presented an informative program, "Improving Interfraternity Councils." BY BUS TO ST. LOUIS

Chartered busses picked up the delegates in the late afternoon and travelled to St. Louis for a professional football game in Busch Stadium. The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in an exciting game, and only one delegate missed his returning bus. Saturday was devoted to Convention business. The business was conducted so smoothly during the morning that the undergraduates had a free afternoon. The most exciting part of the Leadership Conference and Convention was the International Awards Banquet held Saturday evening. In the keynote address, Orville H. Read, president of the Fraternity, reflected on the year 1948 when most of the delegates were born, and the many advances that DU has made. He pointed out that 1948 brought with it significant changes-it was the year of the first Leadership Conference and the year the first general secretary was employed. As part of its growth Brother Read cited the addition of thirty-five chapters over the past twenty-one years.

Trophy," was awarded to the Clarkson chapter. Board Chairman Harry W. McCobb said of the chapter in presenting the award, "Every area of chapter operations is sound if not excellent, and the brotherhood counts numerous campus leaders and athletes. They boast a chapter relations program that is even better than the one which won them the Chapter Relations Award last year." The "Trustees' Award for Excellence" (for campuses with at least twenty-five fraternities) went to the Technology chapter. It has a program of regular re-evaluation and revision that insures sound chapter operations in every area. The Technology chapter has won numerous awards for chapter operations in recent years. NORTH CAROLINA WINS AGAIN

The North Carolina chapter, winner of the "Directors' Award for Excellence" (campuses with fourteen to twenty-five fraternities) , is no stranger to the winners' circle. Scholastically, they were first on campus with eight brothers in Phi Beta Kappa. Financially, the chapter finished the year with a remarkable $15,000 profit. The members are not only involved in nearly every campus organization but this year the ' chapter received special recognition for its willingness to involve itself in the University community . An outstanding spirit of enthusiasm won for the Oklahoma State chapter the "Director's Award for Improvement." They have experienced a steady growth, reaching a peak of eighty members this year. The development of the chapter program has matched this growth, particularly in chapter and alumni relations. (The Oklahoma State chapter has actively supported the Fraternity'S expansion program as well.)


More recent changes include the institution of the Chapter Loan Fund, the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation, and the Alumni Support Program. "All of this-and much more," said Brother Read, was a part of "the transition of Delta Upsilon from what in 1948 we perhaps might have called a gentlemen's club, to what will truly be a brotherhood of gentlemen." He continued, "We are making real progress toward that goal, but we have a long way to go." Brother Read left with the undergraduates an important challenge, "If you have enjoyed Delta Upsilon and feel you have benefitted from it, then I hope that you, as alumni, will do your part to keep the Fraternity strong for the men who come behind you." The top award for the evening, the "Sweepstakes


"'A Time f01' Excellence' is our theme this August, and excellence f01' the brotherhood and for its individuals is a hallmark of the winner of the 'T1"Ustees' Award for Excellence,' " said Harry W. McCobb as he presented the award to the Technolog)I chapter. Receiving the alvm'd is Ben T. Wilson. DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY â&#x20AC;˘

The highlight of each Convention is the presentation of the Fraternity's awards for chapter excellence. Using the standards for chapter operations outlined in the Delta Upsilon Superior Chapter Program, each chapter receives several extensive reviews during the year and at the end of the school year. Members of the Undergraduate Activities Committee and the Fraternity's professional staff weigh the progress of each chapter. Field reports, reports from the chapter Deputies, counsellors, alumni corporation officers, and Province Governors, all are evaluated, in addition to chapter officers' correspondence, SP-10 and SP-ll reports, newsletters, rushing statistics, financial reports, and scholarship standings. The Achievement Sweepstakes Award is presented to the most outstanding chapter in Delta Upsilon. Certificates of Merit are presented to runners-up and to chapters which have excelled in a particular area of chapter operations. In addition to the Achievement Sweepstakes Trophy are a host of other trophies, plaques, and citations-many of them almost as greatly treasured.

The "Presidents' Trophy for Excellence" (for campuses with less than fourteen fraternities) was one of two awards presented to Northern Illinois, as the chapter ranked first in scholarship on its campus. The Northern Illinois brothers put together efforts that won for them first or second place in twelve allschool competitions. A strong administration and an excellent pledge education program also added points for Northern Illinois. RIPON MOVES UP

The "Presidents' Award for Improvement" was awarded to the Ripon chapter, which will celebrate its tenth year in DU this year. Second on its campus in scholarship and first in five campus events, the Ripon chapter is also proud of several campus leaders and athletic team captains. The chapter membership includes students who have been admitted to the college under special academic requirements for disadvantaged applicants. They were the first fraternity at Ripon to admit such members. The "Scholarship Achievement Trophy" was 路 awarded to the North Dakota chapter, which, according to the National Interfraternity Conference statistics, led all chapters in scholarship for the 196768 academic year. The chapter has been number one on its campus since colonization ten years ago. In those years, the chapter has had seven Rhodes finalists, and this .year a brother was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship. Two other members won a Danforth Fellowship and a Woodrow ''\Tilson Fellowship in the same year. The winner of the "Scholarship Improvement

This DU award is presented each year to the chapter which achieves the greatest index increase as reported by the National Interfraternity Conference. The "Publications Award" was presented to Bradley, a chapter that put out four alumni newsletters, a rush booklet, and a weekly summer chapter newsletter. A key factor in the chapter's success was the consistency and creativity of the Bradley program, The Northern Illinois chapter also won the "Pledge Education Award" for improving its pledge education program since its founding as a local fraternity not too many years ago. Last year they initiated forty-two of forty-nine pledges and were second scholastically among the pledge classes on campus. The Northern Illinois program was based on constructive criticism and individual merit. MISSOURI A FINE HOST

Under a fitting theme, "A Time for Excellence," the International Awards Banquet climaxed a week full of learning experiences for over 275 undergraduate representatives from Delta Upsilon chapters and interested colonies and .petitioning groups, The Missouri chapter must be given a big pat on the back for a job well done in making many of the arrangemen ts for the 135th Anniversary Leadership Conference and Convention. Bill Hayton was responsible for coordinating the overall program on the local level which involved many other members of the Missouri chapter, A. E. A.

are assembled as brothers in Delta Upsilon, united in a common cause, which we avow to be the Promotion of Friendship, the Development of Character, the Diffusion of Liberal Culture, and the Advancement of Justice." '!\lith those words the 135th Anniversary Convention was called to order by Lewis Blanton, MissottTi '61, Convention chairman. He went on to say, "It is my privilege and duty to urge you that as we do here meet, we may be mindful of the objectives for which we exist as a fraternity." The auditorium of the Arts and Letters Building on the campus of the University of Missouri was crowded with delegates and alternates from the chapters. This year four more campuses were represented by chapters that were installed during the past school year. In addition, there were representatives from eleven colonies and petitioning groups eagar to learn more about the inner workings of Delta Upsilon. First to address the Convention was the chairman of the Board of Directors of Delta Upsilon, Harry W. McCobb, Michigan '25. "The most significant effort undertaken by the Fraternity this past year," Brother McCobb reported, "was the moving of th e international headquarters from New York City to Indianapolis." He pointed out that the move was inevitable and the result of many years of hard planning, "The move to Indianapolis will save the

Fraternity money in the long run, but the added services of the Fraternity have not been matched by a proportional income increase. This," he said, "must be remedied by a close surveillance of the budget and a vigorous membership increase," In the report of the president of the Fraternity, Orville H. Read, Missow'i '33, told the Convention of the retirement of Brother McCobb and praised him for his outstanding service to the Fraternity. The members of the Convention showed their agreement with a long, resounding ovation. Brother Read then forecast an appraisal of the fee structure of the Fraternity for the next Convention. H e pointed out that the schedule of charges levied upon the undergraduates is, in effect, fifteen years old. Dr. James C. McLeod, Fraternity vice-president, was called upon for a report of the newly formed organization committee, of which he is chairman. "It is the committee's opinion," Brother McLeod said, "that the offices of president and chairman of the Boai-d of Directors could be merged and a smaller and more streamlined Board be form ed." He said his committee also felt that the Board could meet less often yet still effectively serve the Fraternity. Charles F. Jennings, treasurer, distributed the financial statement and made several clarifying remarks, He noted a decrease in the income from


pledge and initiation fees and stated that, "either chapters are pledging and initiating fewer men or there are problems in reporting. In either case," Brother Jennings continued, "each chapter must work to relieve the Fraternity of this problem." The executive secretary, W. A. Butler, Jr., was next with his report and had some tips for chapter officers. A recent fire at one of the chapters prompted him to remind chapter officers to check their own chapter's fire prevention program. Brother Butler reported that the use of illegal drugs was a major factor in the loss of one DU chapter this year and that continued diligence on the part of chapter leadership is imperative to prevent this unfortunate occurrence in the future. He concluded his report by urging chapters to evaluate their programs to attract the contemporary college student, to reevaluate chapter fees in the light of rising costs, and to investigate the initiation of more faculty members. The Chapter Loan Fund Committee was the first of the standing committees submitting written reports to the Convention. W. Donald Watkins, North Carolina '27, chairman, reported that loans or guarantees are outstanding to twenty-six chapters. Because an increasing number of larger loans have been requested recently, he reminded the undergraduates that, "the Loan Fund is a relatively small revolving fund depending principally for lendable money on the timely repayment of loans previously granted." O. Edward Pollock, Vi?·ginia '51, chairman of the Committee on Undergraduate Activities, reported that the committee had met three times during the year and spent much of its time restructuring the Province Conferences and developing the 135th Leadership Conference. He reported with regret that

the committee had found it necessary to request the Board of Directors to suspend the operating privileges of two chapters during the past year. He pointed out however, "The General Fraternity will continue to work with both of these chapters and all others as long as there is any possibility of retaining them as active groups." The report of the Committee on Financial Program was ~mbmitted by John C. Jadel, Bowling Green '52, chairman. His report dealt with some of the statistics that have been developed concerning the pledging and initiation fees. He told the Convention that two other studies in this area should be completed this next year to shed more light on these two major sources of Fraternity revenue. The move of the Fraternity headquarters from New York City to Indianapolis was the major business of the Committee on Administration, as reported by C. Earl Schooley, Missouri '28, chairman. Also of concern to the committee was the perennial problem of recruiting competent field secretaries in quantity to be of proper service to the chapters. As charged by the 1968 Convention, the Committee on Public Relations reported on the resolution urging all chapters to take the lead in proposing that their IFC organizations undertake a study and examination of campus situations that have led to student protest. Richard S. Rimanoczy, Miami '25, chairman of the committee, said that 70 per cent of the chapters have reported on their policy. Of those chapters, 59 per cent reported that their chapter membership has approved the idea and are examining the problems involved in its implementation. W. Edwin Derrick, Oklahoma State '70, chairman of the New Business Committee of the Convention, DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY •

With the anticipation of an even bette,. program this year, Robert E. Houston of the Northern Illinois chapter receives the "Pledge Education Award" for the best program from Charles F. Jennings, Fraternity treasurer.,

called on the other undergraduate members of his committee to give their reports. First was J. Dennis Biggs, Kansas '70, chairman of the Scholarship Committee. A motion supporting the 135th Anniversary Fund for chapter cultural programs was introduced by the Scholarship Committee and adopted unanimously. The motion called upon "Chapters to use this Anniversary Fund as a supplement to already existing programs rather than the sole content of said programs." Larry E. Ward, Kansas Stat,e '70, chairman of the New Chapters Committee, offered three resolutions. One, in support of the Oklahoma State chapter's resolution to continue expansion, was reaffirmed by the Convention delegates. They also supported the committee's resolution that, "the controlled expansion program of Delta Upsilon Fraternity be continued and increased to the greatest feasible level." The third resolution introduced by the New Chapters Committee and adopted by the Convention, read in part, "WHEREAS, There are many established and newly developing predominately black colleges and universities across the continent today; be it Resolved, That Delta Upsilon International study the feasibility of directing its expansion program to these institutions." The Convention also concurred with a motion made by the chairman of the Administration Committee. Ben T. Wilson, Technology '70, as chairman, introduced the proposed legislation to amend the Constitution of the Fraternity. The amendment will eliminate the automatic seating of the last past president on the Board of Directors. The purpose of this amendment is to give the Assembly the right to elect all of the Directors, where presently they elect all except the last past president. Under the present provisions of the Constitution it is possible that a past president might, through a combination of circumDELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

stances, continue to serve as a Director for several years whether or not it was the wish of the Assembly to have him do so. This provision does not rule out the possibility that the Board of Directors could continue to elect one or more past presidents to the Board. This amendment, which was proposed by Orville H. Read, the retiring president of the Fraternity, was endorsed unanimously by the Board of Directors at its April 3 meeting. This amendment needs the final approval of the Trustee's Assembly, before becoming law. Of the amendment, Brother Read said, "There is a need for new leadership and fresh ideas. After a brother has served our Fraternity as president it is time for him to step down and turn the reins over completely to the new guard." Many resolutions were presented by the chairman of the Resolutions Committee, David R. Seward, Union '70. The Convention adopted resolutions of appreciation thanking the staff of the Leadership Conference and the special speakers for their part in the week-long activities. Adopted unanimously was a resolution which read: "WHEREAS, Orville H. Read, MissoUTi '33, has served devotedly as chairman of the Board of Directors and president of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity; and WHEREAS, His position as editor of the QUARTERLY for twenty-two years is substantial evidence of his devotion and interest in Delta Upsilon; be it Resolved, That we give our thanks to Brother Read for his service and interest in Delta Upsilon throughout all those years." A similar resolution of sincere appreciation was made in honor of Harry W. McCobb, Michigan '25, who has served as a member of the board of directors, president of the Fraternity, and chairman of the board.

Expenses of Moving Fraternity Headquarters Principal Factor In Deficit for Fiscal Year Heavy Staff and Travel Requirements Related to Move; Plus Demandsof Expansion Program, Added to Drain on F unds, Treasurer Reports PERATIONS of Delta Upsilon during- the fiscal year ending- June 30, 1969, showed a substantial excess of expenditures over income, because of the move of the business offices of the Fraternity from New York City to Indianapolis and expenses related to that move, and because of heavy staff and travel requirements, as well as some decline in pledg-e and initiation fees. Reporting- to the 1969 Convention in Columbia, Missouri, in Aug-ust, Charles F. Jenning-s, Marietta '31, expressed complete confidence in the financial stability of the Fraternity, and in its ability to operate in a satisfactory financial manner in the long- run. At the same time, he pointed out the need to keep close control on expenses, and to examine our income position. His full report to the underg-raduates at the Convention follows:


As you all know by now, the fiscal year ended June 30, 1969, was a most unusual year for the International Fraternity. That we emerg-ed bloodied but unbowed was not just fortuitous. It reflects the strong- base from which we have been operating-. The attached statements are an integ-ral part of this report and have been audited and "present fairly the financial position of Delta Upsilon Fraternity at June 30, 1969." Let's refer to them as last year passes in review. The first statement g-ives us a condensed "Statement of Financial Position ." At fiscal year end, our consolidated g-eneral funds totaled $502,000, the Cox Fund $208,000 and the Permanent Trust Fund $1,307,000, for a net worth of $2,017,000. This was about $10,000 less than the previous year. The g-eneral funds dipped $70,000 and this was only partially offset by increases of $8,000 and $52,000 in the Cox Fund and Permanent Trust Fund respectively. To be only $10,000 worse off after moving- from New York to Indianapolis and accelerating- our program to expand the number of our chapters is a major accomplishment. Next let's refer to the "Statement of Chang-es in Fund Balances." The first five comprise the g-eneral funds . The first one, "Operating- Fund," which stood at almost $53,000 at the beg-inning- of the fiscal year, ended up very much in the "red" after net expenditures of amost $99,000. More about this fund later on .


The "Chapter Loan Fund" had an opening- balance of $419,000, to which was added $13,000 for interest received. For the record, we do not accrue such income, but credit it only after it is received . The fund also received an allotment of $18,000 from the "Operating- Fund" as heretofore. After charg-es ag-ainst the fund, including- leg-al fees, and out of pocket expenses in connection with settling- the Arizona loan, as well as reserves for slow-payingnotes receivable, the fund showed an increase of about $25,000. Payments are due in installments throug-h 1988. In some cases the orig-inal payment dates have been extended. Loans outstanding- after reserves of almost $21,000 are about $307,000. The "Equalization Fund" did not benefit from the usual transfer from the "Operating- Fund" and has a balance of over $21,000 after charg-es of about $7,000 for transportation costs of the Manhattan, Kansas, Convention. This fund was created to accrue or equalize

October 1969

the transportation costs of Conventions and has provided funds for all previous Conventions, whether they were centrally located or otherwise_ We are uncertain whether to phase out this account and use the "Operating Fund" instead_ Charges for the Columbia, Missouri, and Manitoba Conventions will almost liquidate the fund unless additional funds are transferred to it. The "Emergency and Colonization Fund" did little better than break even during the last fiscal year. Emergency loan repayments with interest were just about offset by new loans and grants. This fund might also be liquidated and its functions performed by the "Chapter Loan Fund" and the "Expansion Fund." The latter fund received a somewhat smaller amount from the "Operating路 Fund," and interest on a note, and had minor direct charges. Its current

balance is almost $76,000, about $10,000 greater than at the beginning of the fiscal year. The "Lester E. Cox Fund" which was bequeathed to us with no strings attached, is still being held intact. However, it could be tapped to finance our new headquarters site and building. Eight thousand dollars in income was added during the year to bring the fund to almost $208,000. There was market depreciation of about 10% at June 30, 1969. The fund includes almost $19,000 in cash. The "Permanent Trust Fund" had a book value of about $1,255,000 at the beginning and $ 1,307,000 at the end of the latest fiscal year_ The increase was due entirely to net gains on the sale and redemption of securities. The proceeds were reinvested in the fund. All income from the fund was credited to the "Operating Fund" and was used first to provide for the QUARTERLY and then for other operating expenses.

No funds were credited to it this year from initiation fees nor were transfers made to it from the "Operating Fund." There is market depreciation in the fund of about 15% and cash of about $19,000. With the accelerating rate of growth in the number of chapters and the prospects of larger chapters, this fund will have to be expanded to fulfill its primary function of keeping the alumni informed on Delta U doings through publication of the QUARTERLY. Now let's examine the "Operating Fund" and the net excess of expenses over income during the last full fiscal year. Income itself was down $20,000 and this was reflected primarily in pledge and initiation fees. For the second straight year we had fewer pledges and initiates. If this is the start of a trend we must arrest it. If it is due to a lag in reporting we must keep our reports and cash flow current. Expenses of the out-of-pocket variety were $100,000 greater than the previous fiscal year. Let me say at the outset that we know where the money has been spent and that the extraordinary expenditures were authorized in principle. We also believe we are at a point where we should begin to benefit from some of our outlays and that there is some room to economize without hurting programs already authorized. Salaries and expenses of our executive and field secretaries reflect the budget increases of an extra man, a full staff for the entire year, and necessary merit increases for experience, as well as the unbudgeted extra travel cost incident to the move to Indianapolis and the cost of visiting project chapters, colonies, petitioning groups, and colleges in which Delta U should be represented. Office expenses reflect expected increases and those

which are related to our move. For a period we had office personnel in two cities. We paid rent on two places for one month. We had extra expense for telephone, stationery, printing, supplies, depreciation, social security taxes, insurance, and audit work. Personnel placement services cost us $2,000. QUARTERLY expenses rose a little over budget, but were tightly controlled. Convention expense included expenses of about 50 more undergraduates than the prior year. We will get some of this cost back from the Educational Foundation. Expenses for initiates covers three items, all of which were higher. The cost of badges has gone up due to a surcharge on gold. Membership certificates are higher and we just bought a new supply. Installation expenses also went up due to travel costs and greater representation from the official family. The cost of running the fraternity rose as officers and committees were more active in visitation and developing and revising material for undergraduate and chapter use. You will note that for lack of excess of income over expenses we have drastically curtailed transfers to other funds. We must not continue this policy because it is a step backward. To summarize, the year ended June 30, 1969, was the year of the moves-the move to Indianapolis for better servicing facilities and the move toward accelerated expansion. The cost of implementing these moves, we believe, will pay big dividends. The two steps taken last year will be the forerunner of giant strides in the future.

Note 1: The notes receivable from chapters bear interest at 5% to 8% per year and are due in instalments through 1988, although payment dates on certain notes have been extended by the chapter loan committee. Some of the notes are fully or partially secured by second or third mortgages on chapter properties. Notes receivable from chapters are stated net of an allowance for doubtful collection of $20,878. Interest on notes receivable is recorded only when received. Note 2: The Fraternity headquarters has a contributory, insured pension plan covering eligible employees as set forth in the Plan. The pension expense for the year was $1 ,655 . Note 3: In a few instances, the Fraternity has guaranteed certain liabilities of its chapters. At June 30,1969, guarantees were outstanding on approximately $95,000 of such liabilities. Note 4 : The financial statements do not include $33,469 cash received from an estate including accumulated interest thereon which is held in trust with the stipulation tha t it be used for the benefit of the New York University Chapter of Delta Upsilon Fraternity if such chapter is activated by February 1972; if the chapter is not activated by that date, the cash and accumulated interest are to be remitted to Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation .

Scholarship Improves Slightly for Second Consecutive Year-Still Below Satisfactory Level


OR the second consecutive year, Delta Upsilon showed some slight improvement in scholarship, with the net result still falling far short of a good record. Statistics recently made available by the National Interfraternity Conference show that thirty-three Delta U chapters improved in scholarship during the school year 1967-68 and twenty-six declined. In the year before that, thirty-eight chapters had shown improvement, and twenty-two had declined. Two factors detract from the significance and value of the N.I.C. data. In the first place, the figures when released are more than a year old, and thus are of more historical interest than of value in assessing the current scholarship effort of the individual chapters. Also, a considerable number of colleges and universities refuse to make fraternity scholarship data available ... which is something of a paradox at a time when many of these same schools are critical of the scholarship stance of fraternities. One university which did make scholarship records in a usable form public for the first time at the end of 1968 was the University of North Dakota. As might have been expected, it showed Delta Upsilon first among thirteen fraternities, with a rank 25.38% above the all-men's average. Thus, for the first time, our North Dakota chapter became eligible to compete for the Fraternity'S Scholarship Trophy .. . and promptly took it home. In its several years of existence, this chapter has never been out of first place on campus in any semester! They were closely trailed by two perennial leaders, Kansas and Kansas State. Kansas ranked 24.68% above the all-men's average, and Kansas State 18.89%. Among the more depressing aspects of the record for the year, only two Delta U chapters, North Dakota and Pacific, finished first on campus, while no less than five, Rochester, Wichita, San Fernando, Auburn, and Carnegie, finished dead last. Rutgers and Minnesota were only one notch from the bottom. Also, while eleven chapters ranked in the top quartile, sixteen were in the fourth quartile. Spectacular progress was made by a few chapters. Western Reserve jumped 26.43% and finished above the all-men's average, where they had been at the very bottom of the Delta Upsilon scholarship chart the year before. . Florida, normally a high-ranking chapter, which had fallen temporarily on hard times, improved by 19.37% and stood ninth on campus, as compared to a rank of 27th among 27 fraternities the year before. Nebraska, up 10.30%, and Iowa State with a improve-


ment of 10.18%, were also outstanding in improvement. Delta Upsilon continues to devote substantial effort to scholarship programs for its chapters. Several programs are also sponsored by the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation. Three study films, financed by the Foundation and produced by the Fraternity'S educational director, Dr. Herbert E. Smith, are circulated to all chapters upon request, and two more are planned . The films cover such aspects as "Lecture Note Taking" and "Study Time Budgeting." The original film in the series, dealing with the Survey, Question, Read, Recall, Review approach to study, is accompanied by the SQRRR booklet, also produced by Dr. Smith. The Fraternity's "Action for Scholarship" program, with weekly bulletins mailed to chapter scholarship chairmen, has encouraged more chapters to elect or appoint scholarship chairmen. Last year, unabridged dictionaries were given to all chapters by the Educational Foundation, which is considering the distribution of other basic reference books in future years.

Wilson. The resolution, which passed, charged the Fraternity to investigate the possibilities of establishing a fund, separate and above those funds available from the Chapter Loan Fund, for the express purpose of guaranteeing loans for chapter housing and building' programs. A motion to establish a Leadership Conference advisory committee was proposed by John MacGowan, British Columbia '70. The motion, which passed, will allow for the committee to assist the Undergraduate Activities Committee in planning the agenda and program of the 1970 Leadership Conference. The final business of the Convention was the approval of the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, as the site for the 1970 Leadership Conference and Convention. Convention business was moved along so well that the scheduled afternoon session was not necessary. Assisting the chairman, Brother Blanton, in the smooth direction of the Convention were Michael S. Proctor, Missouri '65, vice-chairman; V. Tell Neff, Missouri '66, parlimentarian; Dr. James C. McLeod, lvliddlebury '26, chaplain; and Michael G. Boylan, Bmdley '69, recorder.

Founding and Renewal The calendar announces the start of another fraternity year, now underway at the 98 colleges and universities where Delta Upsilon is represented. Next month, chapters and alumni groups will gather to observe the 135th anniversary of our founding . Such an event, as important as it is, gives pause for a bit of reverie, of recalling our rich history, remembering the heritage of Delta Upsilon established on the ideal of Justice. But an anniversary should be something more. As we pause to honor the memories of the past, we must also consider the present and the future. It took great courage and perseverance for our Founders to establish our brotherhood .. There were many hardships and much skepticism, but their belief in the simple virtues of character and human worth, of friendship, justice, and culture, sustained their faith against all obstacles. We are the beneficiaries of their vision, but ,QuA( inheritance is a meagre one, our legacy hollow, if we do not S'eize upon this oc.casion to look ahead, to strive for greater excellence, to ever attempt to mold our Fraternity in the image of our great purposes. To stop, to take stock of our activities and direction; to chart new ones; and to renew our belief in our objectives will make our anniversary more meaningful and our Fraternity more responsive and viable. ~I

Violence on Campus Is Anti-Intellectual, Says Eric Sevareid in Television Program Summary ,


A MERICA is a land of the youth cult. In no other ncountry big country is youth so cherished. In no other is it a social sin to be old, because this nation has always been spiritually geared to the future, not to the past. Oscar Wilde said, "The you th of America is their oldest tradition. It has been going on now for three hundred years." The generational gap is, in large measure, the difference between feeling and knowledge. Lyric poets generally do their best work when they are young, philosophers when they are old. The old infuriate the young, because the old have forgotten the agonies of youth. The nerve ends, after all do not remember pain-nature's secret arrangement for man's survival. The young infuriate the old, because the old cannot transmit their experience to the young-nature's secret arrangement for man's creativeness. YOUTH MEASURES IN ONE DIRECTION

Youth can measure in only one direction, from things as they are over to their idea of what things ought to be. Older people must add two other measurements: backwards to things as they used to be, and latterly, to things as they are in other societies. Otherwise, life, experience, has no meaning. Assuming it does, a few observations may be in order. Student revolutionaries seek greater personal freedom, but what successful revolutions really increases is the power of the state machines, which these students hate. If the young really do try to stage a revolution, it will be symbolistic, but it would be met by a repression that would be realistic. It is always the assumption of the young that the removal of something bad will, by some law of nature, mean the automatic arrival of something better. History suggests some doubts about this. They assume that modern technology stifles the human individual. The best study of this, now underway at Harvard, suggests the very opposite. Student radicals assume that universities are the enemies of truth and justice; if so, then justice and truth have no friends at all. They tell us they understand the true biology of history and the true anatomy of American society and what must be done; in the same breath, they tell us our educa.. The above summation was presented by Mr. Sevareid at the conclusion of a CBS television special, "The Col路 lege Turmoil," this spring. DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY'

tional system is no good. This puzzles adults. They tell us they know far more at a far younger age, and this does not puzzle adults. This is what they had in mind; the code word for this is progress. Violence on a college campus is not only antiEstablishment; it is anti-intellectual. To use fascist methods is, essentially, to be a fascist. Means are what the centuries-old struggle for the rule of law and reason was all about. SOME GRIEVANCES ARE NEW

Some of the grievances of the young are different from the previous years, though hardly more severe, but the feelings of the young are not different. A distinguished English author wrote this about his own college generation: "We were convinced," he said, "that everyone over 25, with one or two remarkable exceptions, was hopeless, having lost the elan of youth, the capacity to feel, and the ability to distinguish truth from falsehood." He was writing about the year 1903. But if the feelings of youth are born afresh with each generation, they cannot be devoid of validity. There is a powerful vision in the eye of the innocent. The child does see when the emperor has no clothes. And at various points of his anatomy, the emperor is naked: on his premises behind the Vietnam war, in which t~e y~:n~ng are doing the dying, on the workings of th@ .draft, on the creaking machinery of our electoral and administrative processes, on the coexistence of immense wealth and awful poverty, on the fantasy of racial inferiority, on the creeping, choking undergrowth of the military establishment. COLLEGES NOT DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE

But only in minor and indirect ways are the colleges responsible for all this. Young rebels attack them for the same reason climbers climb mountains: because they are there. Most institutions in this country require reform, colleges included. A strong advisory role for students makes not only for justice, but for common sense. The one thing colleges cannot stand up against, and the one thing that the Ameri. can people will not stand for, is mass violence. A very great professor, Alfred North Whitehead, once made a chilling remark. "Wait for the back streets," he said. "When they move, the intellectuals will be swept aside." That would be a pity.


Trust Fund Income Declines as Emphasis On Investments Shifts to Growth Program Stocks and Bonds Continue to Yield High Return on Investment and Produced $62,774 Income for Fraternity Operations NCOME from the Permanent Trust Fund declined during the past fiscal year for the first time in many years, dropping from $66,934 for the year ending June 30, 1968, to $62,774 for the current year. This drop in income reflected both a change in the current investment policy of the Permanent Trust Fund committee, and the present-day condition of the market. In reporting for the committee, Nelson Schaenen, Cornell '23, chairman, wrote:


"The Fraternity had for many years relied heavily upon the income produced by the Trust Fund. Since selections for the Fund had to conform to the statutes relating to the investment of Life Insurance funds it was not until 1953 that common stock investments were permitted. We invested at that time in the common stocks of public utility companies because this group provided a high income, and dividend increases were experienced almost annually. The result was that for the ensuing 10 to 12 years this portion

of our portfolio experienced a very large price enhancement-in many cases of 300-500%. "In 1965-1966, however, this group of stocks lost its investor appeal, and interest was shifted to the "glamor" stocks. We were laggard in following the trend, being unwilling to exchange a 302 to 402% income (on market value-the return on our cost was in most cases 12 to 15%) for a very much lower dividend return. "Somewhat over a year ago the directors concluded that, while income from our investments remained important, it was willing to ask the investment committee to adopt an investment policy that entailed employment of a portion of the Trust Fund in seeking above-average capital gain . It cannot be said that the initial excursion proved conspicuously successful even though the market performance has been better than for the average stock falling into the "rapid growth" category. "We feel that we have an imaginative yet sound investment committee and I am confident that the market performance of the Fund over a period of time will prove considerably better than average."

Alumni Support Program

New Editor to Take

Yields Important Income

Over Quarterly Chores

By the first of October, more than $10,000 had been received in the Fraternity office as contributions to the annual Alumni Support Program_ Now in its sixth year, the program each year produces about $25,000 in voluntary gifts from alumniAlong with a scattering of checks up to $100, more than 2,000 alumni annually contribute $10_ These contributions are used to provide additional services to our undergraduate chapters, largely in the areas of leadership training and scholarship developmentAlong with support given to the educational aspects of the Leadership Conference by the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation, this money makes it possible for the Fraternity to conduct a greatly expanded Conference, with a much larger attendance of undergraduates_ On-site living and entertainment expenses of all chapter officers can be paid, and this has more than doubled the number of undergraduates in attendance_ Not only is the Conference valuable in developing leadership traits in young men, but it also has great worth in unifying the undergraduate membership of the entire Fraternity. While there is no obligation on the part of any alumnus to contribute, since lifetime membership is included in the Delta Upsilon initiation fee, many alumni recognize that the dollars which they paid to the Fraternity for their lifetime membership have greatly diminished in purchasing power, so that the Fraternity cannot accomplish as much with the income from the Permanent Trust Fund. At the same time, Delta Upsilon is now providing many more services to its increasing number of undergraduate chapters, all in times of rapidly-spiraling costs. The net result of all these changes is that contributions to the Alumni Support Program, though entirely voluntary, are vital to the Fraternity'S operations. Within the past few months the mailing lists of the Fraternity have been converted to a computer, a necessary step in long-range developments but one which has resulted in the confusion which is almost inevitable when a computer is introduced. Some members have received two or more requests for contributions, and others have received none. Both types of error are unfortunate, and the staff has asked that those who have been bothered with duplicate letters excuse the inconvenience. It has also been suggested that those alumni who have received no letter are encouraged to send in their checks anyway-directed to the Fraternity at 1100 Waterway Boulevard, Indianapolis, Indiana 46202.

(By and About the Brother1 By LESTER G. WELLS, Syracuse '18 The Bear Seeds by James C. Asendorf, Chicago '51. Boston, Little, Brown and Co., 1969. 74 pages, $3.50. Illustrated by Ingrid Fetz. Brother Asendorf, a production analyst for the Rocketdyne division of North American Rockwell Corporation has stated that this is his first published book; "I think of it as an 'I-want-to-read-toyou book' because it does appeal to both adults and children. I've found that my grown-up friends remember some aspect of their childhood from the book and feel that maybe they can share that with their own children." One is reminded of what Kenneth Grahame said about his classic The Wind in the Willows-that it is suitable for children and for adults who recall their childhood. Another book which fits into this category is Robert Lawson's Rabbit Hill. The author's book is "a book for children about a girl named Mary and her friend, Custer, a bear that mayor may not be imaginary" (from publisher's book-jacket). Ingrid Fitz's illustrations are superb, and fittingly depict the episodes of the story. There are many amusing statements by the characters, e.g. "In the future people would be too busy to fight because airplanes (sic) would take them all over the earth and even to the moon." As suggested above, an adult can derive a great deal of amusement from a reading of this story. The author has a fine style-grammatical and clear. The publishers have handsomely designed the volume and it is a joy to hold it as one reads.

Overlive; Power, Povel路ty and the Univel'sity by Dr. William M. Birenbaum, Chicago '50, Delacorte Press, 1968, 206 p. Brother Birenbaum is president of Staten Island Community College. He acts as a consultant with Education Affiliate in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. He has been dean of the New School for Social Research, and provost of Long Island University. "He is the initiator and adviser of a project to set up a college in the heart of the Bedford-Stuyvesant area where half a million Negroes live." The author takes a critical look at the nation's educational system as a result of student revolts. He says "We have created an overlive society-a country in which a substantial number of the citi-


zens do not share in the technological and industrial success which is there for all to see; and in which many of those who do fail to discover any meaning in the success." He states that it is "the alienation of the individual from the community and from the university housed by the community." The three divisions of the book are: 1. A general critique of the inequities of the American society. 2. A specific critique of the systems of higher education in this country. 3. A blueprint for urban institutions of higher learning where there is a reciprocity and a real exchange between the university and the commu路 nity. Comments on Brother Birenbaum's book are very favorable. Among such reviews are those by H. M.

Fund Established to Encourage Cultural Programs To encourage Delta U chapters to inaugurate or expand cultural programs, and in connection with the observance of the 135th anniversary of the founding of the Fraternity, the Board of Directors has established a fund which will be used to help chapters finance such programs. Grants of matching funds will be made by an ad hoc committee of the Committee on Undergraduate Activities, after a review of the proposals of the individual chapters. Because of the limited total funds available, the committee will not be able to grant more than $250 to any chapter. In announcing the program to the undergraduate delegates to the 1969 Convention, it was pointed out that many valuable programs could actually be implemented with very small amounts of money. Among the suggestions made by the Committee on Undergraduate Activities are programs in the fields

of music, visual arts, drama and poetry, and speakers on current events, cultural projects, reasearch, etc. Some chapters already are carrying on fairly extensive programs in these areas with very helpful results. To qualify for a grant, each chapter must submit a written request for funds, and must give a detailed outline of the program proposed, and an itemized budget of expenses (and income, if any). Following completion of the project, the chapter will submit a detailed report which will include an evaluation of its success. Each program will be judged with regard to the committee's estimation of its potential cultural and/ or intellectual contribution to the chapter, the campus, or the community at large. Each application will be judged also by the degree of planning manifest in the presentation and from whatever other sources the committee deems necessary or appropriate.
