Yale Law honors Herbert Brownell T he Honorable Herbert Brownell, Ne-

braska '24, recently received the Yale Law School's Citation of Merit Medal for substantial contribution to public service and

the legal profession. A former U.S. Attorney General under President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Brother Brownell was presented the medal by former Supreme Court Justice, Warren E. Burger. Among others, Brother Brownelljoins former President ofthe United States, Gerald R. Ford; former Secretary of State, Cyrus Vance; and former Supreme Court Justice, Abe Fortas as Citation Merit Medal winners. Brownell served as President of Della Upsilon from 1979 to 1981 and later, as a Trustee of the DU Educational Foundation. In 1990, Brownell received the Fraternity's highest recognition, The Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award. The Quarterly recently caught up with

I serve as the Director for the Ludwig Cancer research Institute in Zurich, so that takes me over there twice a year. The Institute does basic lab research in about eight countries in the field of cancer. It's been a very interesting association for me with the Institute over the past thirty or more years. So little things like that keep me busy." Though he took Delta Upsilon's Oath oflnitiationjust over 70 years ago, the accolades and recognition for Brother Brownell continue. Just a few weeks ago, he was honored by the Municipal Arts Society in New York City for contributions to the Arts. Brownell served for many years as an attorney for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Arts. As his DU brothers, we all take pride in the accomplishments of Brother Brownell -a man whose life has been led as an embodiment of our Four Founding Principles, and one who continues to bring honor to the name of Delta Upsilon today. ,

Quarterly: Throughout your career, you have received countless awards, honors, and recognition. How does the Citation of Merit Medal from the Yale Law School compare to those?

Brownell: "It's a nice recognition on their part; I was surprised by it, but it is very complimentary."

Quarterly: Why were you surprised by it? Brownell: "Well I'm an old timer, you know. I didn't know anybody even knew I was still around."

Brownell: "They are at the printers and will be published towards the end of the month (April)."

O n March 5 and 6, 1993, 42 undergraduates and 10 alumni took the Oath ofInitia tion in Gra nville, Ohio to become DU's 94th active Chapter.

Having accomplished their mission, they now watched their seven new pled ges take the oath. With the completion of the pledg ing ceremony, the Brothers turned to song. Following a few rousing choruses of "Hail Delta Upsilon" and the "Delta Upsilon Ode," the prospective ca ndidates were ready for their Installa tion Exa m.

The State of Fraternity Finances Delta Upsilon Fraternity is now recovering from several years where rising revenues were insufficient to cover the increased expenses of oversight and service to its stakeholders-its undergraduate and alumni brothers. Bringing revenues and expenses into balance has required a series of drastic measures by the staff, the Treasurer and the Board of Directors. Concept of "Operating Income" In its meeting of January, 1992, the Board of Directors adopted the concept of Operating Income as the primary tool for managing the normal activities of the Fraternity. This subset of the income statement excludes the financial consequences of events or functions that are either unusual and/or one-time occurrences, such as a major chapter loan write off, or which are managed separately, such as risk management. The adoption of this format has significantly enhanced fiscal control through effective budgeting, as well as a sharpened focus by the Executive Director and staff to achieve the targeted financial results. Net Operating Revenue Surpluses highlighted the first five years studied (fiscal years 1985 through 1989), averaging $76,000 per year. Significant operating deficits of $126,000 per year were incurred in fiscal years 1990 and 1991. Last year, the operating deficit was limited to $37,000, and this year, we expect income to match expenses. Operating Revenues Revenues rose in an even pattern, from $714,000 eight years ago to $787,000

Total Investment Return Years of total return for the Permanent Trust Fund were as follows: $269,000,

the Foundation were: 20.1% in '89; 16.7% in '90; 3.0% in '91; and 12.8% in 1992. Grants Grants from the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation increased from $186,000 to $194,000 in fiscal year 1989, but slipped to $1 14,000 in fiscal year 1992. Thus, for the first six years of this period, income from these sources increased 6% per year, but declines over the past two years lowered the eight years average to a 4% annual growth. Operating Expenses While operating expenses increased an average of 5% per year for the past eight years, there were large year-to-year fluctuations. For the first five years, expenses increased an average of 3% per year, but jumped 16% for the next two years before being forced down to 8% by board mandated changes. Because of the lack of isolation of Convention expenses during the early years of the study, exact comparisons of these costs are inaccurate. It is clear, however, that an increased convention deficit contributed at least $30,000 to the annual deficit. Also, employment of a more senior executive director and expansion of the staff in an effort to improve chapter services, added costs that were not covered by increased income. This has led your current Board to establish, as a

last year, at a rate of I l/2% per year, which was below inflation. While the total revenue grew evenly, there were sizeable changes in

at the end of last year, despite the achievement of outstanding investment returns. A systematic repayment schedule has been established and is on track. Conclusion While expense control can and should be stressed, the Fraternity must find ways to increase income at least to the rate of inflation, or risk continual downsizing and loss of support services to our undergraduates. Increased membership, via internal growth and expansion are, of course, viable approaches, but these are difficult in an era of declining undergraduate enrollment and eroding financial conditions. We will be considering other sources of financing, including a capital fund drive to increase the income generation potential from the Permanent Trust Fund and the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation.

Survival in the sky: One DU's account of the World Trade Center disaster

B

rother Brian G. Clark, Toronto '69, is Executive Vice President

and one of six Directors in the New York money market broker-

age firm, Euro Brokers. The Company was founded in 1970 and currently has 650 employees spread among six offices worldwide. In 1974, the company moved from Toronto to New York City, occupying space on the 32nd floor of Tower #1 in the World Trade Center. Until Friday, February 26, 1993, the tenancy of250 New York Euro Broker's employees had been reasonably uneventful. "Never in nearly 19 years, can I ever remember us receiving or evacuating for a bomb threat," said Brother Clark. At 12:18 p.m. on February 26, all of that changed ... "I was in the building on the 32nd floor when the bomb went off in the basement (parking garage)," remembers Clark. "There was a noticeable shudder in the building - it was like someone dropped a big safe, you know, something really solid right beside you on the concrete floor. "The room shook, but just for an instant, and then everybody said, 'what was that?''' Concurrently, the building's power went off for a few seconds, heightening the curiosity of all employees in the office. Unlike an earthquake's tremor, which usually spans a few seconds or more, the sensation of the explosion was different - an event distinguished by its force and brief duration. Congregated around the windows of the Euro Broker's offices, Clark and his employees could see people exiting from the Vista Hotel on the street level of the Tower complex. Brother Clark recalled that, "just then, two of our workers came back from the rest room saying, 'there's smoke in the corridors; we'd better get out of here!" There began a coordinated exodus of some 175 brokers who bid hasty good-byes to customers on the phone. Beating a path to the emergency stairwells, Brother Clark and his employees descended about seven floors before experiencing a delay in the evacuation, due to the high volume of workers from other floors and offices who were also attempting to exit the building. "It was like everyone lining up to get off Magic Mountain," said Clark. "The smoke got progressively worse as we got lower and lower; we started bumping into firemen on their way upstairs at about the 10th floor. Near the 6th floor, the lights (in the stairway) were completely out. "It was very, very dark and it became a scary experience." Ultimately, however, evacuees maintained composure. "Really, the spirits were good," recalled Clark. "Nobody panicked - there were a few emotional people, but those were maybe 10 percent ofthe people. Another 10 percent were taking control to calm everyone, and the other 80 percent were silent." Initial rumors for the cause of the explosion and fire involved the malfunction of a transformer, but those were quickly dispelled. All told, it took a little more than 30 minutes for Clark and his 44

DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY/APRIL 1993


employees to get out of the building. Towards the bottom of the stairway Brother Clark remembers that, "It was awful to breathe, though and everyone got black and sooty ... About 20 of our people were treated for smoke inhalation." By the time Clark made it outside, the emergency medical personnel were completely prepared for the onslaught of evacuees. "That was amazing," said Clark, "The medical staffwas set up- ready for us -

the response was phenomenal."

After the building was completely evacuated, company leaders throughout the World Trade Center complex were confronted with the question of how to continue to do business. "We had no idea what this meant for our company," said Clark. "Would we ever get back into the World Trade Center? It raised the question in your mind (but nobody wanted to verbalize it), is the building structurally sound? Will they have to tear it down? Is it over?" Ironically, Brother Clark's company had long since scheduled the weekend of February 27 - 28 to move from the 32nd floor of Tower #1, to the 84th floor of Tower #2. "All of the boxes in my office were packed - we were ready to go and had just spent 4.8 million dollars on the new office facilities." Brother Clark, the other principals at Euro Brokers, and the

Alumni Chapter benchmarking results arrive S

eventeen alumni chapters have completed their benchmarking self-evaluations and have submitted the results to Headquarters. Chapters rate themselves against the best alumni chapters in a number of important categories. Overall, the chapters achieved a 75% rating averaging 74 of a possible 98 points on the score sheet. The scores ranged from a low of 45 to a high of93. Here is how responding alumni chapters fared on individual categories: Board size and meeting frequency: Overall, the chapters achieved a more than satisfactory rating of78% in this category. Board size results averaged 86% indicating the average Board had 6-10 members, as compared to an objective of 11-15. Meeting frequency averaged 71% indicating average meeting frequency between bimonthly and quarterly against an objective of monthly during the school year. Chapter Advising: Overall the chapters achieved only a 59% rating in this, and arc being dragged down by the infrequency of attending undergraduate chapter meetings. That rating averaged only 25%,

as only 5 of the 17 reporting alumni chapters regularly attend such meetings. One-on-one chapter advising rated a strong 90%, and attendance at initiations achieved a 71% rating. Joint social activities: Rated highest of all at 94%. As has been the case, our brothers need no help in this area. Alumni newsletters: Rated at 73% in frequency, indicating an average of 2.5 newsletters per year against an objective of 3 or more. Ten chapters achieved the objecti ve, while 5 chapters issue 2 per year and two put out only 1 per year. This is a critical area as regular communication is the key to building support. Financial support to the undergraduate chapters was rated at 71% with all but one alumni chapter providing some degree of annual support via scholarships, Leadership Institute/Convention expenses and if needed, for rush. House management scored a strong 93% indicating the reporting chapters believe they have this area well under control. Undergraduate chapters were rated 69%. However, 11 of the 17, or 69%, of the responding alumni chapters rated themselves

in the top 10% on their campuses. This is surprising inasmuch as the anticipated result, according to our records, would suggest that only 25% would be in that category. We would have expected 8 to be in the middle 50%, yet only 6 reported, and would have expected 4 in the lowest 25% against none reported. Summary: Overall reporting alumni chapters are about average giving us a solid base upon which to build. We look forward to adding the results from our nonresponding alumni chapters to our database so we can get a better picture of the state of alumni chapters and improve the quality of our services. For many, this is a new concept and it will take time to gain widespread acceptance. Our efforts have to stress recruiting and the personal involvement of our alumni in this area, viewed as critical to the success of our Fraternity. We are still looking for a few good men to help their school alumni chapters and to volunteer to serve as Province Alumni Coordinators. Won't you help? Contact Alumni Activities Manager, Brent Scobie, at Headquarters.

McCoy gives $5.1 million to Marietta By Tim Doulin Dispatch Higher EducationReporter

John G. McCoy, Marietta '35, retired Bane One Corp. chairman, said happy birthday to his alma mater, Marietta College, about 5.1 million times. McCoy and his wife, Jeanne, made a gift of $5.1 million to the small, liberal arts college, which celebrates its 158th anniversary this year. The gift was announced at the board of trustees meeting. "This was a birthday gift to the college," said Patrick D. McDonough, president. "I made the announcement, and the students and faculty who have heard about it are literally stunned." Combined with a $500,000 gift by another member of the McCoy family who the school refused to name, the donation is the largest to the college from one family. The gift raises the school's total endowment to about $30 million.

D U

Founded in 1835, the school has about 1,300 students and 90 fulland part-time faculty members. It has been consistently recognized as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the Midwest by U. S. News & World Report. The gift will establish the McCoy Endowment for Teaching Excellence. The endowment will fund up to 16 "McCoy Professors," providing annual stipends of$l 0,000 to the professors for up to four years. The endowment is designed to attract and keep top faculty members, McDonough said. McCoy and his wife declined requests to go to the college for the announcement of the donation. "They have both wanted to keep a low profile. All John said to me when he decided to make the gift is he wanted to make a difference for Marietta College, and he has made the most strategic difference anyone could make," McDonough said.

"For a small, liberal arts college whose strength is the quality of its faculty, John's gift has given us a chance to move that up a notch and to make that strength permanent, because the endowment is one that will last forever." McCoy, 80, has remained close to the college since graduating in 1935. He served 21 years on the school's board of trustees and was the first recipient of the distinguished alumnus award presented by the college's alumni association. McDonough said McCoy, who served as chairman and chief executive officer ofBanc One for 17 years ending in 1984, has been active in other ways, such as finding jobs for Marietta graduates. "His gift is not just one of money. It is a gift of love," McDonough said. Copyright 1993, Columbus Dispatch, February 12, 1993 (Reprinted with permission.)

Leadership Institute returns to Indy "A Celebration of Brotherhood" convenes July 29-August 1 D

elta Upsilon will experience a "Celebration of Broth erhood" with special emphasis on Vision & Values at the DU Leadership Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana, July 29 to August I. Three days of leadership training wrap around the legislative meetings of the undergraduate Convention and alumni Assembly, plus time out to honor distingui shed DUs and give a little back to the community. "This is about celebrating brotherhood, friendship and excellence," said Will Keirn, Pa cific '75, Board member and Dean ofthe Institute . "Come to Indy to learn , share and recommit yourself to the vision ofour founders'." Registration starts the afternoon of July 29, with the keynote address that evening on "The Meaning of Fraternity" given by

Greek speaker T.J. Schmi tz, CAE , Executive Vice President/CEO of Tau Kappa Epsilon . "T. J.Schmitz has spent his professional career educating the character of fraternity men and women. He is a living example of what is best in the Greek world: leadership, brotherhood, service and commitment. He will kick off the Institute in grand style ," said Keirn. Friday's luncheon features Paul Spurgeon from The Villages, Delta Upsilon's official philanthropy . Delegates should be hungry at lunch, because they will have spent the morning in volunteer service to one of six volunteer organizations in the Indianapolis community. "We're literally taking the Convention to the streets for half a day, to prove fraternity men everywhere give of their time

to help those in need ," said Keirn . Returning this year is one of Delta Upsilon 's most inspirational speakers, E. Bernard Franklin, Kansas State '75. Dr. Franklin, the Assistant Dean ofStudent Life at Kansas State University, will be speaking to us at dinner on Friday, and exhorting us to accept the cha llenges before us. Saturday's lunch keynote will be by Vic Boschini, Dean of Students at Butler University and a not ed educator of fraternity leaders through the Interfraternity Institute. "Vic has spoken on hundreds of college campuses on the issues of quality in Greek life," said Keirn. Chapter quality topi cs from the Seven Stars System, and Visions and Values issues confronting Greek s, make up the heart of a day of programs. Undergraduates will have 20 sessions to


choose from, while special sessions on structuring alumni advising teams, fund-raising campaigns and discussions on how to use the Province Alumni Coordinator will be highlighted for alumni delegates. Vic Boschini and four other noted Greek Advisors around the country will serve as Greek Advisor's in Residence available for ' informal consultation by chapter officers throughout the Institute. "If you have a problem at your chapter," Keirn said, "but have been reluctant to talk to your own Greek Advisor, now is your chance for some confidential advice." The legislative meetings and a President's Reception are scheduled for Saturday afternoon, with dinner on your own in downtown Indianapolis. Saturday night features "DU Unplugged" and some reserved time at the Indianapolis Hyatt's health club and pool. Sunday morning before departure, delegates will have the annual chapter awards brunch, following the interfaith worship servrce. Two undergraduate delegates per chapter have already paid their $350 fee through monthly chapter assessments, while up to four additional undergraduates per chapter may attend. All alumni, regardless of positions on the DU Boards or committees, will pay $200 or more in registration fees, said Keirn with financial help available through underwriting by non-attending brothers.

It's Easy To Support Your Educational Foundation We heard from several Quarterly readers recently, who asked us to make it easier to send annual gifts to the DU Educational Foundation through the magazine. Indeed, many Brothers prefer to make their gifts in response to an appeal in the magazine, and in doing so, eliminate the need to be sent additional appeal letters during DU's Annual Campaign. Citizens of the United States can make tax-deductible gifts to the DU Educational Foundation by clipping and sending the coupon to the right; Canadian citizens may do the same by sending the coupon to the left. Either way, your gift creates the programs and services that shape and change the lives of tomorrow's leaders.

Delta Upsilon Fraternity open-door policy on reporting hazing Delta Upsilon Fraternity has an open-door policy on reporting hazing, that lets concerned chapter members come forward to eliminate hazing activities, rather than wait until those being hazed report the offenses. If any DU undergraduate or alumnus has any questions or concerns about hazing in his chapter, the International Fraternity is committed to helping correct the situation. Delta Upsilon's staff is capable of outlining a positive, reinforcing, progressive program to replace any level of hazing that a chapter may have. Provided that chapter members take the initiative to contact DU Headquarters with their concerns, there will be no sanctions or penalties for any current or previous hazing practices. This will not be the case if the report comes from men being hazed, or from college officials or other outside authorities. Please take the first step to help your chapter before it's too late.

as your chapter size been stagnant or

decreasing, over the past couple years? Is fall rush becoming more of a strain and less rewarding due to fewer freshmen coming out for fall rush? If you answered "yes"

to either of these questions, then perhaps it is time for your chapter to begin a summerrush program. With a tough economy and post-graduation jobs becoming scarce, sharp incoming college students must know that any investment in time and money is going to payoff. So every DU chapter must be able to tell an interested but practical rushee how joining DU is going to help him get a job or get into grad school after his senior year. For many of Delta Upsilon's strongest chapters, summer rush is the ticket to success, but contrary to popular belief, you don't need to be a large chapter with a rush budget of thousands of dollars to be successful. The ingredients of an effective program are basic: proper planning, dedication by all brothers, and the desire to grow. The summer rush recipe that follows will provide you with a step by step process, but keep in mind, Headquarters is only a phone call away. For more information, questions, or concerns, call DU Headquarters, and we will be happy to work with you to develop a program to fit your chapter or colony.

The point of this personal contact is to initiate conversation, and answer any questions either from the incoming student, or his parents. Before school lets out for the summer, the entire chapter must decide on how they intend to go about signing men. Be sure to check with your college or university regarding rules.
