President's Report

President McQuaid


volution, growth, and change have been the constants in Delta Upsilon during my brief tenure as your president. It is, therefore, entirely appropriate that this issue of the Quarterly described the New Horizons that we are exploring in our public schools, our colleges, and our I:::. Y chapter houses. An important change recently undertaken by the I:::. Y Board of Directors was the recruitment of an Executive Director for the Fraternity. As of May 1, 1995,Abe Cross, a 1988 graduate of the University ofTampa (FL), and a member of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity, will assume the responsibilities as our top professional staff person at the I:::. Y Headquarters in Indianapolis. In evaluating the candidates for Executive Director, the I:::. Y Board of Directors placed the greatest importance on breadth of experi ence in an international fraternity headquarters setting. Mr. Cross presented outstanding credentials in this regard, having worked for nearly seven years as a member of the professional staff at the Phi Delta Theta

Headquarters. He leaves his responsibilities as Chapter Services Director at <1>1:::.8 where he oversaw the educational programming and traveling staff that served 188undergraduate chapters, in a total budget of $2.5 million. Among his first assignments for I:::. Y, will be attending a spring Board of Directors meeting, training new traveling staff members, and coordinating programming and logistics for the 1995 Leadership Institute in Banff, Alberta. Currently, he and his wife, Lisa, are in the process of relocating from Oxford, Ohio to Indianapolis. I am thrilled by the prospect of what I believe Abe Crosswill do for our Fraternity, and I'm sure that when you have the opportunity to meet him, you will share my sentiments. Celebrating our 160-year heritage of innovation in the fraternity world, the journey towards New Horizons for I:::. Y has just begun. Fraternally,

A Call for Change: The New Role of Partnerships in Education "A state without the means of some change, is without the means of its conservation. " --Edmund Burke

We lament our society's loss of innocence and character.

Applying Burke's statement to the recent climate of our culture, we are perhaps more concerned with our conservotlon now, than we have been at any other point in our peacetime history. Have we peered through the fog for a glimpse at our Armageddon, or has the recent frenetic pace of change been brought on by supreme impatience with the status quo? Quite likely, the answer is not forthcoming from a choice between these absolutes, but rather a combination of the two. We lament our society's loss of innocence and character, as the preponderance of drugs and violence rob us of yesteryear's idealism. Honest work and ingenuity, at one time knitted into the fabric of our people, appear to have been replaced (or at least eroded) by a collective thirst for legalized gambling, and the other institutionalized get-rich-quick scheme: litigation, the perverse interest in which has spawned its own cable N channel (Court

tvÂť. As these perceptions take hold, we grow anxious . When improvement in the human condition appears nonexistent or too slow, we become imp a tient; then frustrated, and

eventually downright angry. Searching for someone or something to blame, we speak, as democracies always have, through our right to elect our society's leaders. Regardless of your political affiliation, last November's elections In the United States were dramatic. The results from the polls yielded one unequivocal message: the people want change, and those elected to del iver it will be held accountable. Among the wide divergence of opinion about which changes should be addressed first, our system of education stands as a unifying priority. Since our elementary and high schools, universities, and fraternities are partners in education, each of these institutions will face a call for fundamental change in the years ahead. In th is issue of the DU Quarterly, we examine change as grist for an international debate on education. What follows are three perspectives on how change should manifest itself in our public schools, our universities, and our fraternity chapters. The conclusions represent the opinions of the authors, and are not intended to end the debate on these issues, but instead give it a beginning within our brotherhood.

Our Children...A Different Look At Public Education by Donald P. Nielsen,

Washington '60

am a businessman who has decided to spend the balanceof my working life in the field of Public Education. To prepare myself for this career, I spent a couple of years traveling the United States looking at schools and talking to people involved in education in an effort to find out what was working, what was not, and why. From that effort, I came to a number of conclusions, the first of which was this:


The primary responsibility for the education of children does not lie with schools. I arrived at this conclusion based upon my 6


effort to understand the mission of a school. I startedmy look into education by asking a very simple question, "What is the mission of a school?" I believed this to be a very reasonable inquiry, one which all educators should be able to easily answer. It is the kind of question I ask businesses and other organizations to understand why they exist. Successfulbusinesses and nonprofits answer this question with a clear mission statement. In the education community, this is not the case. What I found was that no one had an adequate answer to that question. No one, to this day, hasgiven me a clear, well thought out response. What I received more often than not



were strange looks and confused explanations. One teacher told me the mission of a school "w a.s to deliver the curriculum dictated by the statees." How would you answer that question? Most peo:;ple, inside and outside education, believe that the :D1 ission of a school is "The education of chit:C:::lren." I disagree! First, "The education of children" is not a mis'sion. It is a goal just as making a profit is the goa::J. of business, but it is not the mission. If ma~ng a profit were the mission of business, theE1 General Motors and the corner laundry woald have identical mission statements, and of co I-se they do not. - ' Second, if "The education of children" is the mis:sion of schools, why haven't schools ach:1eved their mission? I maintain that one of the key;; _ reasons public education is in trouble, is that the COAL of schools is well understood, but few; . understand the MISSION. To define this mission, we must first ask, "W!JI::lat is an educated individual?" What skills doe s this person possess; what can he do? How do ~e know when we are finished? The U. S. Department of Labor has publish.eed a report, listing five capabilities that edu.: cated individuals must have to be effective in the Q lst century. The report states that each per:s;on must have the ability to: 1) Manage resco-urces, 2) Work with others, 3) Acquire and use i nformation, 4) Understand systems, and 5) Us technology. -_ I would add to this list by suggesting that an edlLicated person must possess : honesty ; integrity; con::;;..munication skills; knowledge of our cou-:I1try's history and Constitution; self-esteem; kn<> ~ledge of other cultures; personal responsibili m, and the potential for growth. _ If our schools could turn out young people witf l the above attributes and skills, each of them 11'woriId be prepared to begin a long and produetiv - . life. Thus, I believe that schools are really des::a:igned to assist our society in producing young peo.I>le with the knowledge, skills and character whLch allow them to become what I call "responsibl ce citizens." The obligation for creating responsible citi:z:ens, does not fall solely on our schools. In facu = it will never occur if left up to schools. Pre ess ident Bush's 1989 Education Summit affi:Jr:::"ll1ed that 90% of a child's life between the age :so of 0 and 18 is spent somewhere other than sch c:>ol. This profound statistic convinced me of the act that the education of a child is the pri4.ary responsibility of the parents, not the sch <E>ol.

Parents have many partners in the education of their children, such as family members, neighbors, religious institutions, peers, television, and of course, the most important partner, school. What then, is the mission of a school? Given the above, I believe the mission of a school is: To serve as the primary partner with parents in developing children into responsible citizens. If there are no parents, or the parent(s) are unable to function in this role, then society must provide the child with surrogate parents. No child can successfully achieve adulthood without the care, nurturing and love of an adult. To meet the need for surrogate parents, we must recruit adult volunteers to serve in schools, and we must keep schools open longer during the day and during the year to assist those young people who have no home to go to, or where home is an unsafe, unnurturing environment. Accepting this mission statement has tremendous implications for a school system. It means that school systems understand that the customer of a school is the parent(s), not the child. In my city (Seattle), there are 22,000 children who live in the city limits, but do not attend our public schools. It is not the children who have left the school system - it's their parents . Parental involvement is essential for an effective school. Taking parents out of a child's educational equation is a large part of why busing has failed. Children bused outside of their neighborhood are removed from the most important adults responsible for their education - parents, family, and friends. Busing 's failure to improve academic achievement had nothing to do with race; it had everything to do with parental unwillingness to be removed from their children 's education. Removing the parent from access to the school, is like removing customers from a business - it is disastrous! If we are serious about fixing schools, we must encourage parents to get involved and recognize the importance of the neighborhood in helping to bring up a child. We must bring parents back into the education of their children, and we must bring the school back into the neighborhood. Some would argue that returning to neighborhood schools will return us to segregated schools. They may be partially correct, however, I would argue that we will have segregation if we do not return to neighborhood schools. In almost all urban centers, public education is steadily progressing towards segregated education, regardless of the city's population. In Seattle, for

The education of a child is the primary responsibility of the parents,

not the school.



example, our public schools are 58.4% minority while the city's population is 24.7% minority. Segregation is now based upon financial means, not race. Middle class white and minority parents are moving with their children to the suburbs or to private schools, leaving urban schools to educate an increasingly large percentage of special needs children - children who cost the most to educate. Urban school systems now have the most expensive children to educate and a declining tax base willing to pay for this education.

How the system operates, and how it must be changed

Why are

there so few

leaders in public education?


For the current educational system to survive and become the primary partner for parents in the education of their children, there are four fundamental aspects of public schools that must change . The first and most fundamental change, is leadership. In my travels across the country, I was appalled at how difficult it was to find visionary leadership in the educational system. This became especially obvious when I came across a true leader - usually a principal whose vision led to the development of a truly outstanding school. These schools are found in the most destitute neighborhoods as well as the most affluent suburbs across the city, and across the country. Why are there so few leaders in public education? Obviously, the job of an educational leader is difficult. The challenges grow each year, while the resources to meet them are not always sufficient. While dealing with the controversial and sometimes conflicting community agendas, educational leaders are often blamed for society's problems. More importantly, education is the only institution in America in which promotion occurs by self-selection. If you are a teacher, and you decide you want to become a principal, you can quit teaching, go back to school, and come out with a principal's certification. The same is true of superintendents. This kind of promotion system leads to leadership by accident. To find the thousands of effective leaders needed, we must fundamentally change the way principals and superintendents are selected and trained, including: - Creating career ladders for teachers to include two pathways: one for those who are outstanding teachers and want to remain in teaching, and another for those who show effective leadership skills and want to take on management responsibilities. - Looking for leaders in other sectors of


society. We must make it easy and attractive for leaders in the public sector, the private sector, or the military to enter the education community and become principals and superintendents. - Modifying principal training, so people are not only trained in leadership, but can also manage a budget, understand and use technology, handle discipline, deal with union contracts, market their school to the neighborhood, and deal with the media. - Changing certification procedures for teachers, principals, and superintendents. Certification should occur after a person demonstrates competence in his or her respective position, and certification procedures should recognize the experience a person may have in another field. Today, "certified" is not necessarily synonymous with "qualified," and we must correct that. To accelerate the pace of change - because changing certification requirements necessitates changing state laws - school districts should begin now to set their own standards for certified personnel. Unless and until we select visionary leaders to be principals and superintendents, schools will not improve. Furthermore, we must give our leaders the freedom, responsibility and accountability to ensure their schools operate effectively. Today, outstanding principals and superintendents create effective schools in spite of the system, not because of it. Second, the educational structure must change. Our current educational system is over 100 years old and is designed to produce workers for a 19th century industrial or agrarian society. Since then, our entire world has changed exponentially, while the changes in education have been only incremental. Most public school systems are organized as centralized, bureaucratic institutions. To meet the demands of a global, high-tech economy, we must change to a decentralized, communitybased system, where the principals have the authority and responsibility to provide an effective educational environment for children. Such a system, characterized by strong parental involvement, allows schools to adopt their own instruction and curriculum . Teachers and support staff are empowered to create unique learning environments for students - which is what now occurs in effective schools. With this empowerment, schools will be expected to meet district-wide achievement standards. In a decentralized system, the focus of the central office shifts from control and regulation, to service and support. Third, the educational system needs to move from a time-based system to an achievementbased system. A principal I met in my travels

made a telling comment. He said, "Today, in the equation of education, time is the constant and achievement is the variable. What we need is for achievement to be the constant and time the variable." Changing to an achievement-based system allows students to attend school until they learn what they need to know. It also mandates that schools remain open longer during the day (and summer) for those children who require more time to learn. No child moves to the next level until he/she masters the current one. Fourth. schools need to shift from a groupbased system to an individual-based system. Our current system tends to treat all children the same, but we know from research (and common sense) that each child learns differently, at a different pace, and with different interests . Individualized education can be accomplished in two ways: by increasing the adult to student ratio in the classroom, and by using technology. Both allow children to learn at their own speed without ridicule from peers. Adding teaching assistants, parents, and volunteers to the classroom will increase individual attention to each child allowing for more individualized learning. Adding technology further individualizes learning by allowing each child the chance to learn at his own pace and in his own learning style. Bringing technology into the classroom also allows children to teach adults to use computers - what a great way to gain selfesteem and enhance adult education.

Conclusion Tomorrow's jobs require a different kind of education than you or I received. At the turn of the last century, the competitor for your job was your neighbor; at the end of World War II, it was the person across town. Today, the competitor for your job can be anyone in the world. In addition, careers now require a level of technological skill never before needed. As we approach the turn of the century, we must create a school system that educates all children effectively. The changes I have outlined are not only possible , but, in my mind, essential.

Pine Benches and Laptops ne of the most quoted, and misquoted, comments on what higher education in America ought to be came from Delta Upsilon's own James A. Garfield, Williams 1856. His ideal college, Garfield said, consisted of "a pine bench with Mark Hopkins at one end of it and me at the other." Mark Hopkins was the charismatic teacher and president of Williams College when our 20th President-to-be was a student there in the 1850s, some 25 years before he was elected President of the United States. If his remark sounds quaint or merely sentimental more than a century later, it is not just because we have largely forgotten Hopkins. The costs of anything even approaching a one-an-one educational system make such arrangements even more prohibitive today than they would have been in Williamstown 140 years ago. Before looking more closely at the painful matter of paying for higher education, however, note the real implication of Garfield 's remark. It is that a first-rate education is a pre-industrial


enterprise. It is highly labor-intensive, demanding a great deal of personal attention on the part of the teacher and effort from the student if real learning is to take place. While Garfield's model has always been impractical in its extreme form, it nonetheless embodies an ideal toward which our colleges and universities have tended to strive. The lower the ratio of faculty to students, the smaller the classes, the more opportunity for tutorials with senior professors. By such measures as these do we tend to determine the quality of education. Assembly line teaching and diploma mills are, rightly, terms of disparagement in our profession. So it is that colleges and universities have remained something of a pre-industrial anachronism in the way in which they have produced and delivered their product to their consumers (even to use such terms is sure to make most academics gag). The better the education, the more preindustrial its structure, just as Garfield suggested.

Financial considerations

Residential campuses could become artifacts of the past.

Much of this structural tendency is reflected in the ever-rising costs of education. Faculties cost money, and the more of them there are on the payroll, the higher the costs of the students' education. Left to the marketplace, or to the generosity of rich benefactors, American higher education, like that in much of the rest of the world before the past half-century or so, would have been reserved to a privileged elite. But that has not been the case. From very early in our history, it has been one of the glories of American culture that governments at all levels have assumed they had a major responsibility to support institutions of higher learning with tax revenues . The logic was clear: investment in higher education was an investment in the common weal. It made a democratic commit ment come alive in a way that would drive the nation forward. The result has produced an incredibly rich array of colleges and universities throughout the United States, and a formidable higher education system . As a result, we have provided more access to higher education to more people than at any other time and place in history. Yet, support for higher education is now losing much of its traditional strength with the public. All across the country, legislatures are making cuts in higher education budgets, demanding tuition and wage freezes, and calling for down-sizing of faculties. This of course exacerbates the very problem of costs about which so much concern has been registered. In my own state-related university (one of three in Pennsylvania), state appropriations accounted for two-thirds of the university 's operating costs when I joined the faculty more than 25 years ago; most of the remaining third came from tuition. Today that situation is about reversed, with nearly two-thirds of revenues coming from tuition monies as the result of the decline in state funding. Inevitably, tuition costs have had to rise to meet the shortfall, while the facilities in which we teach increasingly resemble those of a third world country. Similar shifts are putting our colleges and universities in unprecedented squeezes from coast to coast. Many, like mine, are now at a point where they cannot continue to pass the shortfall in revenues on to their students without making the education they offer unaffordable.

Another twist from Washington Lately, there came another twist from Washington. Congress is now considering drastic cuts in federal grants and loans for higher 10


education . Loans that have been interest-free while students are in school may not be so much longer. Also under review, are proposals to cut or eliminate three aid programs that require colleges to match a portion of the federal dollars they receive. If enacted, students and their families may be burdened with a $20 billion cost over the next five years, assuming that the current number of students could somehow find the money to stay in school.

Not just "blips" These do not appear to be momentary blips on the screen of support for higher education. Colleges and universities will almost certainly continue the down-sizing trend many of them have been engaged in for some time. Some of their rising costs in recent years have come not because faculties were growing, they were not, but because of aging, if shrinking, faculties draw higher salaries than would the fresh-out-ofschool academics who can seldom find jobs. Faculty/student ratios will continue to widen, unless, of course, cuts in student assistance prevent ever larger numbers of young people from attempting to earn bachelors' degrees. Residential campuses with the kind of vibrant student life that many of us still value could become artifacts of the past. If higher education has remained until now largely pre-industrial in its organization, some today envision it leaping directly into post-industrial modes, thanks largely to the computer revolution. Already, having one's own PC is nearly prerequisite to making it in college. Interactive media and computer networks allow students and faculty to enter mentoring relationships without having to sit in the same classroom or office with each other. Library assignments can be accessed from home. CD-ROM packages are appearing as alternatives to Gutenberg-era textbooks. Even a little familiarity with these new technologies makes it clear both how much more information they are making available and at how much greater speed we can communicate what we have learned to others. What is not clear is exactly how much they can cut down on the actual costs of paying someone a salary to teach. The technologies themselves are not cheap (although, as they are more widely used, they're becoming cheaper). They may help a single professor to reach more students, scattered all about the landscape, than was ever possible within the confines of a single lecture hall. But they do not eliminate the need for a human being to act as a mentor to another who looks to her or him for judgment, for appraisals of student efforts that try to incorpo-

rate an awareness of the student 's own history, for sensitivity to the variations in what excites learning, for a sense of the elusiveness of truth. All of that places very traditional, pre-industrial demands on the time of the individual who is teaching by way of a CD-ROM display and correcting papers on Bitnet. Nor can computers and their networks replace the human community of the college campus . There , traditionally much of the most important learning has gone on informally, when students explore ideas with fellow students as they hang out together in fraternities or dorms. Learning (if not always of the bookish sort) has long been enhanced by date nights at the library, study halls, and coffee klatches . Still more learning has come from campus rallies, political demonstrations, and teach-ins. If much of this is doomed by the increased constraint of cost and the newfound ease of long-distance learning , the educational experience is diminished, too.

Two guesses and a warning For all of these reasons, it is an unsettling time in academia , and unsettled times do not make one confident about predicting where we're heading. Avoiding prediction, I would nonetheless hazard a couple of guesses, along with a warning . 1) The academy will survive, and in some respects thrive, as distance learning becomes increasingly the norm in higher education. It may not look much like the academy we have known, for it may become more of a state of mind than a tangible place where free inquiry flourishes . As always when one culture replaces another, the old one dies with a palpable sense of loss, and

appropriately so, since the new one is mainly different from, and not entirely better than, the old. 2) To do the teaching job at all, something of Garfield 's ideal must always remain, and that hands-on relationship between student and teacher will have to be paid for. The laptop has its place today on Garfield's imagined pine bench, but it's still the two minds sitting there that have to be engaged for learning to take place. We should not expect real education ever to come without a substantial price tag. 3) Finally, my warning: If the current mood of stinginess toward higher education marks a permanent shift in America's priorities , then America itself will soon be in deeper trouble than we now imagine. Leading nations in any era do not lead for long when they slight the education of the generations that follow them. Democracy does not survive when it fails to offer opportunities for self-achievement to all its people . There is much in America 's history and culture that encourages me to believe that we will be willing to invest what is necessary for the enlightenment of the people. It is also possible, however, that we are losing our sense of the realism of that ideal. Even if our disenchantment is only temporary, in getting back to that commitment, higher education is in for a rough patch. It is hard, if sad, to imagine that any public figure today will be remembered for a comment that captures some current ideal of college life.

We should not expect real education to come without a substantial price tag.

The Road Well-Traveled For Fraternities A swinging pendulum in our chapters he year 2000 has lost its intrigue. Science fiction writers have long since moved on from crafting plots about the fantastic changes that could occur then, and students who will graduate from college in that year, are about to become seniors in high school. Orwellian predictions are now antiquated - even the television series, Star Trek, has moved on to "The Next Generation." The next century is simply too close. As the milepost of a new millennium approaches, it is a time for assessment; for taking stock of where we've been, where we 're going, and the roads we'll follow to get there. The road for tomorrow's fraternities , is, oddly enough, one


that is well-traveled in many of its aspects; completely uncharted in others. With eyes cast towards a new horizon, chapters must begin their journey towards a fresh identity on campus. Greeks are being held accountable to a new set of standards, which, ironically, bear striking similarities to expectations that were in place 30 or more years ago. The concept of in loco parentis is making a resurgence, and destructive chapter behavior, the tolerance for which was formerly in ample supply, now results in strict sanctions, or loss of recognition altogether. Beyond the enforcement of behavioral standards, today's students have needs that are

materially different from their counterparts of even a decade ago. Freshmen arrive on campus now with the realization that graduate studies will be essential to compete for positions that required only a bachelor's degree in previous years. Academic achievement, therefore, has taken on renewed importance . Consequently, activities that do not help an individual improve his grades (such as hazing and excessive use of alcohol), will increasingly be avoided by students of any promise whatsoever - precisely the kinds of people we seek for membership in DU. The opportunity to earn any grade however, is becoming prohibitively expensive. College costs that continue to rise at twice the rate of inflation have caused consumers of higher education to become much more savvy. They rightly ask, "What is the value-added component of fraternity membership?" As greeks, we must be able to articulate a convincing and honest response. Other components of a chapter's reputation that in the past may have been considered drawing cards, are losing their lustre. Some documented studies suggest that the incidence of acquaintance rape in fraternity houses is many times greater than it is in the dorms. Assuming such studies are accurate , logic suggests that consensual sex also occurs at a higher rate in chapters as a whole. Generalizations follow, such that fraternities are perceived as places on campus where sexual relations are most likely to occur. The trouble is, that regardless of the protective measures employed, sex can now kill anyone who engages in it. As long as fraternities leave this aspect of their image unchanged, outstanding prospective members, cognizant of the lethal consequences, or simply influenced by moral values, will avoid our chapters at all costs, and encourage peers to do the same. Low tolerance for poor conduct, strong emphasis on academics, concern for rising costs, and more deliberation on the consequences of having sex - all of these describe components of campus life in the 1950's as much as they do the mid-1990 's. Therein lies much of the answer to how I believe our chapters should and must change . If fraternity life in the first half of this century represents a pendulum position at one extreme, and the late 1960's/early '70's represent the absolute opposite position, we are (and have been) swinging towards a paradigm more reminiscent of 1950, for example, than that of 1970. Chapters and national fraternity organizations that do not recognize this trend, are on a


course for extinction. Such dire predictions notwithstanding, I am optimistic that most of our brothers can and will continue to flourish. Fraternities need not reinvent themselves, grandstand for re-adoption of the 18th Amendment, and generally reverse rudder to vanquish all that is (and was) fun about greek life. Our customers, however , have new needs which in a way, will force fraternities to return to their roots, and as they do, become a more important partner in the educational process of an individual, and indispensable components of the university communities in which they exist. In my estimation, there are several keys to the preservation and growth of tomorrow 's fraternity chapters :

The Pendulum Swing KEY #1: Recruit members on one criterion: merit. It's not enough that a rushee plays varsity baseball. If that's the primary criterion for membership, you soon have a DU chapter with nothing but baseball players. In such a scenario, membership or involvement in an extracurricular activity subordinates membership in Delta Upsilon. The chapter becomes known on campus as "the baseball house" first; "DU" perhaps second, or third, or worse. What results is not a strong brotherhood. An appreciation for differences in others, and the learning that comes from it, is what I hear many alumni across the country tell me was the most valuable part of their undergraduate DU experience. Among those who can be recognized as "born leaders," greek membership gives such individuals the forum to build and refine their abilities to lead. We must return to the practice of identifying the very best individuals (not clumps of clones) our campuses have to offer, and show them how joining DU will make them exceptional. We must recruit the elite, in the positive sense of that word, and allow the mutual attraction to DU 's principles and values to be the sinew that holds our brotherhood together . Seek members who display character and are cultured, have the potential to build strong friendships and show evidence of integrity individuals recruited with these criteria foremost in mind, will be men of merit. If we are honest in our effort to find such people, we need not worry about attracting men of diverse interests and cultural backgrounds. Our membership will soon mirror the increasingly diverse populations on campus. Merit must be the only superiority we seek and acknowledge in our members.

KEY #2: Make academic achievement every brother's top priority. Many brothers will suggest that earning good grades already occupies the highest importance in all chapters. I would respond by asking to see how the Social Chairman's budget compares with that of the Scholarship Chairman. If we say that grades take precedence over all other commitments in the fraternity, we must mean it. Realignment of our priorities to improve scholastically does not need to be painful, and the result will not create chapters full of reclusive bookworms. If we truly shift our focus, then instead of establishing a punitive connotation, "requiring" pledges to endure endless hours in a study hall, we will channel our resources to provide them with educational video tapes that teach them the techniques of speed reading. We will cut costs in other areas of the annual budget, to purchase one new chapter-use personal computer each year. We will hire a time-management specialist to perform a seminar for the entire brotherhood and we will think of many additional imaginative ways to truly assist and encourage our members in their scholastic pursuits. Unlike so many other organizations on campus, fraternities can provide tools for academic achievement among members. Because of our strength in numbers, we have the resources to invest in educational technologies that are unaffordable for smaller groups or individuals. Want some evidence? Consider our DU chapter at the University of Iowa. Just eight years ago, our brotherhood there struggled with low membership and a reputation on campus for being average. In 1988, an alumnus created a scholarship trust through the DU Educational Foundation that now results in $9,000 for scholarships each year. Rather than award all the money to individuals, the chapter has voted to invest $3,000 each year in educational computer hardware and software. Today, the DU brothers at Iowa are among the finest in the greek system, and anyone from the chapter will tell you that investment they've made in their Computer Room, has played a significant role in their ascent. When the rhetoric of a primary commitment to scholarship, becomes a reality, fraternities will benefit in two important ways. First, more of our brothers will be accepted to good graduate schools, because more of them will bring better grade point transcripts to the admission process. Employers increasingly require advanced degrees for many positions, and this trend will only expand in the job market of tomorrow. Second: our membership will increase. Who

wouldn't want to join an organization that will keep you in school (it remains true that fraternity members graduate at a higher rate than unaffiliated students) , and help you get better grades. When we change the conditions that cause the national all-fraternity grade point average to be lower than the corresponding all-men's average (as it currently is), more high quality men will be attracted to our chapters. As important, a collective improvement in grades will vanquish any reasonable argument for harmful "deferred rush" programs (wherein freshmen are prohibited from pledging fraternities during their first and occasionally second semesters). Symbolizing this recommitment to academic performance, this and future issues of the Quarterly will once again print as many chapter grade point averages as possible. KEY #3: Encourage Substance-Free chapter houses. This means nothing more than a readoption of "the house rules" that were in place for decades. Ironically enough, there are currently pockets of undergraduates who want a greek-life experience, but not at the expense of destruction to their fraternity homes, and disruption of their living environment. Such undergraduates have established several "Substance-free" chapters, (none of them in DU - yet) which forbid the use of all drugs (alcohol and tobacco included) in their chapter houses. These brotherhoods enjoy active social lives and sponsor well-attended parties, it's just that none of them occur in their chapter houses. Sororities have never strayed from this policy, with the result that the vast majority of their properties remain in impeccable condition. Fraternities, on the other hand, have been apparently pleased to play janitor for studentbody-socials over the past 25 or so years, and our houses show the battle scars to prove it. Soon, some courageous and intelligent DU chapter is going to see a way to create better living conditions , with no meaningful sacrifice to its social contacts and calendar. That chapter and the men who belong to it, will adopt "Substance-Free" guidelines, and for doing so, have a place in our history as visionaries and leaders.

DU must preserve the right to remain single sex.

KEY #4: DU (and all men's and women's fraternities) must preserve the right to remain single-sex. Perhaps this is a non-issue, but at several institutions, primarily in the Northeast, a vocal minority of students and perhaps a greater percentage of administrators have terminated Continued on page 25 DElTAUPSILON QUARTERLY/APRIL 1995


Chapter Spotlights Alberta

The '94-'95 academic year is again one to be proud of. This year we committed ourselves to becoming the best chapter on campus in all pursuits! We finished First in the IFC Greek Olympics , Second in the coveted Pan Hel Song Fest (thanks to the DU Songs My Brothers Taught Me tape), a strong Fourth in the annual Delta Gamma Anchor Splash, First in All Mens 3-on-3 volleyball, and we are looking to recapture the IFC hockey crown. This year marks our 60th anniversary on the University of Alberta campus and we would like to take this opportunity to invite all of our alumni brothers to attend our celebrations in September. Just contact the chapter for more details. As you can see, we are keeping the spirit of Delta U strong, and we look forward to the challenges ahead. See you all at the Leadership Institute in Banff! Ken D. Boutilier '95, President Baylor '

The last year has seen marked improvements in the Baylor Chapter. With an increased overall GPA, a continued effort toward community service, and a total reorganization of the executive council, the chapter isworking its way back to the top. We currently have two National Merit Scholars, Blake West '96 and Chris Najberg '97 . DU strives for community service excellence as well. From our traditional "Sweep of the Creek" that runs through campus, to our volunteer work with the Waco Little League, to the annual day of service called Steppin' Out, the chapter has been extremely busy in making



the community better for everyone. The reorganization of our executive council has proven beneficial in the area of finances, rush and alumni rela tions. Our improved alumni relations committee enabled us to have a remarkable rec eption with our alumni during homecoming. We thank the alumni who attended and look forward to seeing them at the upcoming DU Alumni GolfTournament. Our strong rush program brought us four highly motivated and high quality gentlemen: Oliver Calderon, Omar AI-Ateeqi, Doug Hare, Richard Aleman. Our solid financial management allowed us to have a very memorable formal at the Hyatt Regency in Austin. The chapter Is also very involved in campus life. Brother Jeff Chiapetti '96 recently took a job as a Leadership Specialist for the Department of Student Activities at Baylor. Brother Scott Stelk '96 tutors for the Accounting Department and Brother Robert Shuttlesworth '96 continues his efforts in assisting the soccer team . Once again, we thank the many people for their hard work, dedication, and motivation. The Baylor Chapter is looking forward to continued growth and excellence in every aspect of college life. Jeffrey Chiapetti '96, Secretary Bowling Green

After successful recruitment efforts this semester , the chapter held the Regional Leadersh ip Seminar for Province 5. Many brothers from across the state of Ohio attended and all enjoyed good fellowship. The chapter continues to take a very active stance in terms of community

service , and we hold two or three brotherhood events each week. Currently, our main focus is on stronger alumni relations and a greater commitment to academic excellence. The new chapter administration is highly motivated and the rest of the members are ready to make a difference on the BGSU campus. Many brothers hold interest in contacting DU brothers internationally via e-mail. The future looks very bright for the Bowling Green Chapter and our members are excited about the prospects for 1995. Nathan Elkins '96, President Calgary

We started the year with our first ever Homecoming, where acquaintances were renewed and new friendships were made. The main focus of the chapter this year is on rush and chapter programming. Last fall we pledged seven fine men, all of whom were initiated. This semester we have pledged another four and look forward to our first summer rush program. The brothers benefited from many guest speakers who addressed topics ranging from STDs to dressing for success. This summer we'll celebrate our 5th anniversary at our formal, and hold our alumni golf tournament. Also, we are very thrilled that next year's Province 12 RLS will be held in Calgary. Jeff Robson '96, President Denison

This spring we pledged 17 men -- one of our best efforts since our reinstallation. The chapter is also proud to have compiled a 3.3/4 .0 GPA which ranked us first on campus. The focus for the 1995 year is twofold : 1) We want to strengthen alumni relations because we realize their importance as vital resources for the chapter. We

admire our alumni brothers because they provided the foundation for success. 2) The chapter will continue even stronger recruitment efforts because we will lose many brothers to graduation. The new executive board officers and the entire membership are highly committed to reaching greater levels of success. We are becoming more recognized on campus and the best is yet to come. Good luck to everyone this semester and we hope to hear from you soon. Kash Eagleton '96, President

Fresno Since our last report, the Fresno Chapter has continued to improve and strengthen all aspects of our brotherhood. Through the implementation of a newly designed pledge/membership educational program , our knowledge and practice of the Fraternity's ideals is inc reasing at an astounding pace. Additionally, our recently inducted Executive Board has made huge strides in goal setting, planning, execution and follow-through within the chapter. Improvements such as these have set the foundation for a

Chapter Spotlights sustained period of growth and prosperity. Lastly, the brothers in Fresno would like you to know that the door is always open; stop by anytime! Jubal C. Bly '98, President

Iowa The Iowa Chapter has been as busy as ever. Brothers Daron VanHelden '95 and Jeremy Hagan '96 have kept the Iowa Chapter a powerful force interfraternally, as both were recently elected to the IFC. Brother Don Hladko ' 96 has also recently contributed to the chapter's honors by being selected as rush counselor for the fall semester. We just held our sixth annual DU arm wrestling tournament for charity with the women of Delta Delta Delta. The chapter set records for the number of participants and the amount of T-shirts sold. Greek Week isjust around the corner and this year we will be participating with the women of Kappa Kappa Gamma. The chapter isvery busy in the area

of administration as well . We have begun a recruitment drive for alumni corporation board members and a "burn the mortgage" fund raiser. Insurance is a topic of concern for every chapter and the Iowa Chapter is compiling a home inventory in case of a disaster. These are just a few of the things that are happening in Iowa City. Bradley M. John '96, President

Kansas While the last time you heard from us things were not in the best shape, a lot of good things have happened in the last few months. I will list a few of our most recent accomplishments. Our pledges finished second in GPA w ith 2.964. Overall , the chapter moved from 19th to 9th and we should win the Greek award fo r most improved GPA (we're .004 from being in the top five) . This year we participated in Rock Chalk Revue with Kappa Alpha Theta . It was a tremendous honor to have our show selected to perform, but an even greater honor to receive the award for BEST show. It had been five years since we had been in Rock Chalk and ten since we had won . We also received an honorable mention award for community service. Most importantly, house morale is higher than it has been in years. Everyone has great pride in themselves and Delta Upsilon. Strong leadership and success in Rock Chalk have helped bring about the change. Alan Stearns '95, President

Kent State

Marietta Brothers participated in the LtithAnnual Canned Food Drive benefitting the Marietta Salvation Army.

In 1995 DU will stop at nothing to be the best. The chapter



Chapter Spotlights enjoys a stronger campus image and ranks among the top in terms of membership size. The greatest aspect of this chapter is our sense of brotherhood. The chapter understands the importance of community service and it will become one of the top priorities for this year. We recently recruited one of our largest spring pledge classes in years, and will travel to Washington, D.C. for our spring formal. We wish to thank the alumni for their continued support. They provide tireless effort and continue to be a big reason for ou r success. " Ha il Dikaia " to all our brothers! William Sopko '97, President McMaster

Celebrating our fifth anniversary as a chapter, the past year has been our strongest. Every area of the Fraternity has seen marked improvements which have enhanced our position o f leadership in the greek community . The Founders' Day d inner and upcoming brotherhood dinner, along with a dedicated alumni corporation, have taken alumni relations to new heights. Our charity events continue to do well, with visits to a local soup kitchen , a food drive, and our upcoming "Ho meless for the Homeless" event next month. Many thanks to the Rochester DU brothers for the idea. A dedicated rush this year has already produced 10 new brothers , with seven more to be initiated soon. Our Hawaiian party was a huge success socially. We want to thank all the chapters that were visited by our brothers over the spring break. If you are in the area , just west of Toronto, please call 905-523-7516. We would like to return the hospitality. The dedication of the chapter the



past year has taken us to a new plateau. I have great confidence that the chapter will make next year even more rewarding. Sean Mason '96, President Miami

This year will be very exciting for our chapter. The spring semester began with the initiation of a fall pledge class of 14 quality men. Recruitment is never far from our minds , and our spring rush isshaping up to be our biggest in recent memory. In addition to our strong showing in athletic competitions, all other aspects of the house deserve mention. We have brothers who are members of the various community service organizations on campus, and several others who have been nominated to prestigious positions in honor societies , the IFC Scholarship Committee, IFC judicial Board , and IFC Community Relations Chair. The biggest accomplishment in terms of campus involvement was the recent election of past president Tony Uribes '95 into office as IFC President. We are continuing our philanthropic activities that began during the fall semeste r. Our weekly trips to a soup kitchen in Cincinnati, participation in the area Adopt-A-School program , as well as our annual Pledge Puddle Pull, are keeping us active in the community. Academically we rank among the top five fraternities for overall grades. To assist our scholastic endeavors, we plan to update our house computing and office facilities. We look forward to continuing our involvement with area alumni through our attendance at the Cincinnati DU Alumni Club meetings each

month, and our annual Christmas Dinner. Our new programs, campus achievements, outstanding scholarship, and alumni support have provided tremendous momentum in our quest for greatness. Donald E. Splitstone '96, President Michigan Tech

We were busy here at the Michigan Tech Chapter during winter term, working for three weeks on our snow statue for Winter Carnival. Our statue was a scene from the Oregon Trail. During this term we also had a mixer with Delta Zeta . We initiated our winter term pledge class of 10 men, and have given out ten bids for our spring term pledge class. Upcoming is a road trip to the North Dakota State Chapter, a community service project, Alumni Weekend, and Greek Week. Matthew D. Willing '98, Secretary North Dakota

We had a wonderful winter and the weather allowed us to take part in some of our favorite activities: boot hockey on the Coulee, broom ball, our annual "first snowfall " football game, psycho-snow sledding , and pickup hockey games. The snowfall also allowed us to show our "new and improved " community service program : we have taken care of our neighbors' snow shoveling needs with our boots, shovels, and brawn. One of the essential parts of North Dakota winters isstaying warm inside with your brothers and friends. This provides a perfect opportunity to have fun together, with our poetry contest, playing cards, our Christmas "w hite elephant" gift exchange, having chronicles, watching movies, studying together, and entertaining our favorite sorority guests. We have a perfect balance

between experience and youth in our chapter. Our older members excel in various areas of campus life , and we have several DU's on UND's alumni association , as well as its president. We have a Delta Gamma Anchorman and Alpha Phi Heart Throb, and three IFC executive officers. Our younger members are anxious to do their part to uphold ou r high standards. With the accumulated energy and resources found within our chapter, our future looks quite bright. The gUidelines laid before us in the form of our founding principles, will direct us in the challenges ahead , and I am confident that our chapter will be able to add another stone to the already solid foundation of Delta Upsilon.

For the Men of the Ohio Chapter, we have experienced a new beginning. Not only did we pledge 10 quality men during open rush, but we have recruited a number of alumni to assist and advise the chapter's operations. A special thanks goes out to Terry Clovis '58 for the countless hours of work, and the trips to and from his farm in West Virginia. We are going into spring quarter very motivated and excited about the possibilit ies that lie ahead. If you are in the Athens area, please stop by the chapter house at lOWest Mulberry. Clark Combs '95, President Ohio State

With winter quarter almost over, the men of Ohio State are looking forward to a well deserved spring break. It's gratifying to see how far our chapter has grown and improved. We're looking forward to participating in Greek Week and our spring formal. We had not participated in either activity for many years,

but can do so now, thanks to the hard work of our members. Individual involvement in student organizations and volunteer programs is too varied to list, but we would like to congratulate Brother Chip Bradford '97 for his selection as Province 5 representative to the DU Undergraduate Advisory Board . Through such involvement by all members, our chapter will continue to improve. Stephen R. Hummel '96, President Oregon State

The Oregon State Chapter is currently looking into creating a new fraternal experience for its membership. Along with the initiation of 25 pledges this month, the executive council will be adding two new positions, House Operations and Chapter Programming . The chapter is excited about revising old programs and creating new ones. Delta Upsilon has always set the standards within the g reek community and now it is time to take them to a higher level. DU's are looking to the future and

making changes that w ill benefit our membership five years from now. Balanced with our vision of success, the social atmosphere has also been great. We just held our annual winter term house dance, Royal Mallard Ball, for the sixth year, and participated in many philanthropies in the past term. Back Yard Bash, our biggest philanthropy, is coming up this month. We are especially excited about this summer, when our kitchen will be rebuilt. It's estimated that about $50,000 will be spent for repairs . Jeff Bryant '97, President Pace

We did itl Four years ago we started as a colony at Pace University in Pleasantville, New York. Now we are one of Delta Upsilon's newest chapters (see story on page 24). The spring semester has been a busy one, as we have been focused on becoming installed, contributing to the community, and becoming increasingly involved on



Chapter Spotlights campus. At this point we have eight pledges and are looking to recruit a few good men before the end of the semester to share in our brotherhood . For any alumni in the Pleasantville area, we would like to extend to you the right hand of fellowship and welcome you to visit. James Monahan '95, President Purdue In a time of overall declining membership, the Purdue Chapter of DU has once again shown that it is one of the premier chapters on campus. Headed by VP of Rush , Nate Luepke '96, we recruited 21 men. Based on these results, the chapter should have about 75 men next fall. This is amazing when you consider that lessthan four years ago we topped out at around 20 men. Although we are growing at a rapid rate, we have not lost sight of the reason that we are in college. Last semester we finished fifth out of 46 fraternities in grades. We continue to strive to be number one in this category and look to do even better this spring. Our presence on campus continues to be felt. We finished fourth in the Delta Gamma Anchor Splash and a re currently in fourth place among all houses in intramurals (we had a volleyball team make it to the final four and one of our basketball teams found its way into the sweet sixteen among 102 teams). Congratulations, guys! We are looking to repeat this year as University Sing champions. Paired with Alpha Chi Omega and under the direction of Brother Jon Owens '97, our chances are strong. Many great and exciting things are happening at the Purdue DU Chapter and we



would like to thank all of our alumni for their continued financial and moral support. Without the past, there would be no present or future. Dikaia Upotheke. Sean M. McKenna '97, President San Jose The spring semester had barely begun when the DU's at San Jose State began to distinguished themselves. Mike Euglow '95 began his term on the IFC, and Greg Fijman '96 was elected as the Province 11 representative to the Delta Upsilon Undergraduate Advisory Board. Rush went well and we have the largest pledge class on campus thanks to Matt Klock '96 for all his hard work. We have just moved into our new chapter house at 201 S. 11th Street , which would not have been possible without the tireless work of alumni such as Ed Mosher '52, Jeff Pesta '85, Alex Sydnor '87, Ross Fuller '49 and Barry Swenson '67. The house has 23 rooms upstairs and 12,000 sq. ft . which is a huge increase over our old sevenroom house. We want to thank the Cal Poly and Fresno brothers who came to our inaugural house warming and contributed

to its success. We look forward to continued success in IFC sports, a great turnout for our first ever Parents Day, and increased brotherhood as we educate our new pledges on what being a member of Delta Upsilon is all about. Robert Pedersen '95, President Syracuse The highlight of the fall semester was the 7th annual scholarship banquet, keynoted by Rami Khouri 70. Over $6,000 was given in scholarship and leadership awards by our Dikaia Foundation. Top winners were John Brodsky '96 who won the Dwyer Scholarship for the highest GPA in the chapter, and Mike Romanowski '97 who won the Stratton Scholarsh ip for his activities and GPA. This semester's president is Scott Bevier '96, a business major and honor student. David Schapiro '97 placed 5th nationally in the AT&T Collegiate Investment Challenge. Jesse Sternschein '95 will be class marshal for the School of Information Science at commencement in May. Craig Wazbinski '96 isstudying in London, and John Brodsky is pursuing his studies in Hong Kong. Matt larrobino '97 is a member of the ski team, and Adam DeMichele '95 helped Congressman James Walsh in his reelection bid last fall. Craig Dean '97, an engineering major, used his considerable computer skills to put together a new pledge manual for the chapter. Mike Johnson '95, Corresponding Secretary Technology No baseball at Fenway Park, the last year with the Boston Garden, and only re-runs of Cheers. While some of the Boston attractions have slowed down, the men of the Technology Chapter have only just begun.


We are having a banner year and look to continue. We have a motivated executive committee that is trying new ideas in community service and alumni relations, and we have instituted a new financial management program in an effort to control past due accounts receivable . It seems to be working well because we collected 100%of our receivables last semester. Just recently, we initiated 11 men into our brotherhood and are getting ready for the Message Party , an event that has been around for over 100 years. If you are in the area, please stop by 526 Beacon and say Hello. Rahul Shendure '95, President

Texas The spring semester has been another good one for the Texas Chapter. We have taken another quality pledge class, and are working on rush for the fall semester. The intramural basketball team made the playoffs, and we are on the way with our softball team. Three members attended the RLS at the Texas A & M Chapter and had a good time meeting brothers from the other chapters. Thank you to our Aggie brothers, The chapter is looking forward to Greek Week, our Easter party for underprivileged children , and our alumni weekend, all occurring this month. Justynian Jones '96, President

Western Illinois After a busy and productive fall semester, the brothers of the Western Illinois Chapter have continued to strive for excellence. We started off the spring semester by pledging a fine group of men. Over the February 24-26 weekend, Western Illinois was the site of the Regional Leadership Seminar for Provinces 7 and 8, and it was a good chance for brothers from the

Linus C. Pauling: A Nobel DU by Thomas D. Hansen, Iowa State '79

As DU continues to celebrate its 160th Anniversary year, the Quarterly will occasionally feature briefprofiles of significant people, places, and events since our founding at Williams College. In the July '95 magazine, our 160th Anniversary feature will revisit the DU Convention of1934.

leaned over the railing at the behest of the two-time Nobel Prize winner, peering into seaweed billowing in the surf below his ranch on a bluff south of Big Sur, Ca. Linus Pauling, Oregon State '22, and I were looking for the sea otters he was watching that morning, but they had ventured elsewhere. It was a pleasant beginning to an hour with a DU brother who had won two Nobels single-handedly, something no one else has ever achieved. Here was a man who, in his mid-80's, could be allowed a serene retirement. After all, he had earned the Nobel for chemistry in 1954, after discerning the nature of the chemical bond; won the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1962, for marshaling international scientific support for a nuclear test ban treaty; came within a few amino acids of discovering the structure of DNA (he had the helix right, but saw one strand, not two); wrote a best seller on the virtues of healthy living and vitamins; taught college chemistry at the age of 20, and chartered a DU chapter. Serenity for Dr. Pauling, however, meant keeping up on the latest scientific dilemmas . As he welcomed me into his airy, horseshoe-shaped ranch house, we chatted first about fraternity matters. I was there seven years ago, as DU 's Executive Director, to present Dr. Pauling with the Fraternity's Distinguished Alumnus Award. Brother Pauling could not attend the DU Leadership Institute that summer, so we arranged to meet on this sunny winter afternoon when he was deep in research at his home, where he "could do some real thinking without the phone interrupting," he said.


While I would rather have had hundreds of undergraduates and alumni meet Brother Pauling firsthand, I was grateful for the chance to spend an hour alone with him. He accepted the gold medallion on its sapphire and gold ribbon with a smile, and put it around his neck. He looked as happy as a new initiate, eager for the challenges of the future. "What' s become of the Williams of the song?" he asked, and sang two lines from a DU song he had learned as an Oregon State pledge in the fall of 1921. I explained how Williams and a few other founding DU chapters had become inactive, largely because campus attitudes became hostile to fraternities . We talked then of Oregon State, the chapter and campus, today and in the 1920's. My last visit to Corvallis had revealed a solid chapter, with strong scholarship and alumni involvement, a fine newsletter, and men interested in life beyond college. He said the same was so, when he was initiated into Gamma Tau Beta in January, 1922. I had earlier asked Brother Pauling to write an acceptance of the Distinguished DU Award to be read at the Leadership Institute. This he had done: "The Oregon State Chapter of Delta Upsilon, and its predecessor, the local fraternity Gamma Tau Beta, played an important part in my life. "My father had died when I was nine years old, and up to the time I became a member of Gamma Tau Beta, there was no one who strove to teach me how to get along with my fellow human beings. "As a result, I was rather quiet and withdrawn, to such an extent that I had few friends. My brothers in Gamma Tau Beta and Delta Upsilon helped me to develop my personality and to communicate with other people more effectively. "In particular, they encouraged me to participate in the college activities in public speaking and oratory, and to develop my

confidence in my abilities. "1 thank you and the other brothers for doing me the honor of giving me the DU Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award." 1 reminded him of his remarks, and he smiled, and his eyes grew even warmer at the thought that young DUs might take his words to heart. "That was good advice when 1 got it. 1 believe it is the same today," he said. Despite the passage of years, this octogenarian had lost none of his faculties. At one side of the spacious great room, was a drafting table and a high stool; on the table were a dozen red ledger books, perhaps 11 by 17, each numbered, while 20 scientific journals lay nearby. "That's how 1 keep my notes as 1 do research," he said. 1 asked him what he was working on. There followed a flawless summary of his research on four issues, as current as today's newspaper, stated in terms just above layman's, as 1 had indicated 1 tried to stay abreast of today's science. Room-temperature superconductors were the hot topic at the time, and he was looking at the molecular significance of several compounds which showed promise. The intricacies of the mv virus and how it affected certain immune system proteins was another area. There was a question of electron transfers within certain bimetallic alloys, beyond my scope. And there were icosahedral quasicrystals, large molecules made up of two or three elements that formed symmetrical shapes (think of a geodesic dome), but were not true crystals. "These are most intriguing," he said, waving a hand toward the high-pitched ceiling. "They act like crystals, but are not; yet they do things which true crystals cannot do. They hold promise as a means to modify other chemicals, particularly in the biologic fields." 1 noticed then that there were five or six models of these quasicrystals hanging from the ceiling, made from Tinker Toys. "1 built these, so 1 can look at the structure while reading the literature," he said. His eyes told me he had as much fun building the models as he did trying to unlock their secrets. We talked then about his studies of Vitamin C and other vitamins, and their role in human health and longevity. Brother Pauling was a poster child for his theories, with a complexion and vigor that would be the envy of most men in their 50's. "Some say that 1want people to take vitamins as a magic potion," he observed. "1 have never said that. Vitamins are just a part of what 1 recommend." He autographed a copy of How to Live Longer and Feel Better as he spoke.

(Reading it on the return trip home, his words rang true. He suggested: no smoking, drinking in moderation if at all, eating a variety of foods, drinking plenty of water, getting exercise, staying home to recuperate when you're sick, taking vitamins - and finding a career that you enjoy, so that you are happy and can reduce stress. That he found ample biochemical evidence of the helpful benefits of vitamins, served only to support his arguments.) As we concluded, we walked past walls crowded with honors and awards, the Nobel certificates, citations of merit from the world's leading scientific organizations, two dozen or more awards which would make the career of any scientist. He noted that he had donated his personal papers to Oregon State, and described the certificates with casual interest. Then, he perked up as he spotted a sample of pyrite he'd recently received. "Five and six-sided pyrite crystals," he showed me. "Usually this 'fool's gold' has foursided crystals. Very interesting; what caused these unusual forms?" As 1 prepared to leave, he thanked me for reminding him of his roots in Delta Upsilon. 1 said, "You know how proud we all are to be your DU brothers." "1 don't know that 1 would have developed the self-confidence 1 needed if my brothers at Oregon State hadn't helped me when 1 joined the chapter," he said, recalling how shy he felt and how he thought he didn't express himself well in class. "1 enjoy visiting the chapter when 1 can get to Corvallis." Brother Pauling returned the favor at the 1923 Convention when he presented the case for Gamma Tau Beta to become the Oregon State Chapter of Delta Upsilon. Clearly, he took the Promotion of Friendship and the Development of Character to heart throughout his life. 1 am confident that he continued his avid research and scientific odyssey until the day he died on August 19, 1994. 1 see him forever winking at sea otters, writing in red leather-bound journals, using Tinker Toys to pierce the mysteries of the universe, and modeling what it means to be a DU. Brother Hansen served Delta Upsilon as its Executive Director from 1986 to 1989, and is currently a staff attorney for Golden Rule Insurance in Indianapolis, Ind.

are encouraged and challenged to attend and represent their chapters. The Fraternity needs committed and interested alumni to mentor our young brothers, provide examples of successful living and to help these men make decisions about the future of Delta Upsilon . The annual Assembly of Trustees provides you a voice in the governance of our Fraternity. DU's future depends in large part to your volunteer commitment. Why not be appointed to represent your alumni chapter or corporation as a Trustee in Banff?

Undergraduate Convention Undergraduates often ask, "Is it really important for me to attend the Leadership Institute?" You bet it is! Delta Upsilon relies heavily on the input of our undergraduate brotherhood. The Convention brings important issues affecting the Fraternity before the membership for consideration and vote; important issues that make your attendance essential to the future of our Fraternity.

A Message From the Dean

This summer we have a chance to practice what we preach and come together as students and alumni to reinforce the bond that makes us brothers across boundaries and borders. Bring your families and spouses. Let them experience the beauty of Banff and the blessings of our brotherhood. Make your plans now to be a part of something great, something meaningful, something DUl" Will Keim, Ph.D ., Pacific '75 DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY/APRIL 1995


Pace Chapter Installed


o achieve Chapter Installation a colony must excel in all areas of chapter operations, from scholarship and recruitment to charitable service and member education. The Pace Colony of Delta Upsilon Fraternity has done just that. Since their founding as a colony in 1991, members have battled adversity and dedicated many months of hard work in their efforts to be recognize d as a chapter of Delta Upsilon. Over the weekend of March 4, 1995,62 men saw their dream realized as Initiation and Installa tion ceremonies were performed for the new chapter by a ritual team consisting of Brothers Richard Holland, Syracuse '83, Executive Director of the DU Educational Foundation; Grant Robinson , Oregon State '93, DU Headquarters Leadership Consultant to the group in 1993-94; and Eric Thompson, Bradley '94, a current Leadership Consultant. Rite I ceremonies began Friday evening in the Campus Center on the Pleasantville, NY

campus of Pace University. After a discussion of the meaning and importance of Delta Upsilon's Four Founding Principles and history, the participants, including five fathers , signed the Chapter Roll Book. Rite II of the Fraternity's ritual commenced Saturday afternoon in Goatsmen Hall. Brother Holland provided a rousing Installation Charge, in which he addressed the need for a positive attitude and the forma tion of chapter goals and objec tives. Making reference to the enjoyment in his own college career, Brother Holland challenged the group to look forward : "When the sun rises tomorrow, when the novelty of this great achievement has passed, you will have an opportunity, and I believe an obligation, to start contemplating your next journey for this brotherhood, and for yourselves. As you begin to think about this journey, your success is guaranteed if you weave DU 's Four Founding Principles into your life as integral parts of your

attitude and your goals . As we embark today, let us accept and greet with shared enthusiasm the voyage in true brotherhood that begins." Following the Initiation and Installation ceremonies, the group celebrated with over 150 guests , including Pace University faculty and staff at a reception in the chapter's honor. Featured speakers included Chapter President James Monahan '95, Dennis Cutrone '97, and Colony Founding Father Jim Montague '93 . Gifts commemorating the Installation were presented to the chapter including the DU flag, the Fraternity's history book, the chapter gavel and ritual materials. Finally, as the afternoon slipped into evening, the chapter members continued their celebration at their spring semi-formal dance . Delta Upsilon would again like to welcome our new brothers at Pace University. Letters of congratulations may be sent care of: James Monahan, Chapter President , Pace Chapter of Delta Upsilon Fraternity, Box 264, 861 Bedford Road, Pleasantville, New York, 10570.

PRESERVING THE STANDARDS IN DU Among its most important responsibilities, the DU Board of Directors is entrusted by the 60,000 members of our Fraternity to preserve the standards and uphold the principles set forth by our Williams College founders over 160 years ago. Meeting such responsibilities, forces the Board to occasionally make difficult decisions, among which are ones that result in the closing of a chapter. Two years ago, the Board began to examine those chapters and colonies that have had historic ally low membership figures, and others that have chronically failed to meet financial obligations. Given our limited resources, DU cannot afford to provide the vital support that these habituall y struggling chapters and colonies need, and also support the Fraternit y's strong and stable groups. In every case, however , the Board attempts to help those chapters and colonies that experience difficulty in meeting basic expectations. Only when overtures of increased staff time, effort and resources produce inadequate results over a significant period, does the Board vote to suspend a chapter, disband a colony, or in extreme cases, revoke a charter. In the past year, the DU Board has suspended the chapters at San Diego State University, the University of Arkansas, California State/Long Beach, and Southwest Missouri State University. Colonies have been disbanded at the University of British Columbia, Tri-State University, and Western Maryland University. The Southwest Missouri State Chapter has petitioned to appeal the Board's decision to the Assembly of Trustees, which will meet at the annual Leadership Institute in Banff, Albert a, July 27-30, 1995. The Fraternity's Expansion and Colonization Committe e periodically reviews every college and university in North America at which Delta Upsilon has had a chapter, to determine an appropriate time to reestablish our presence on campus. As examples, DU recently revived the chapter at Lafayette College, and recolon ized at Stanford University, several years after ceasing operations at both schools. As a visitor to any campus upon which Delta Upsilon is represented, it is our goal and our responsibility to ensure that you are proud of the DU undergraduates you have occasion to meet. We continu e to focus our attention on maintaining the standards that appealed to you when you decided to join DU, and appreciate your support in these efforts to strengthen our brotherhood for the future.

The Road WellTraveled For Fraternities Continued from page 13 single-sex greek organizations. Furthermore, on some of these campuses, any student caught trying to start or operate a fraternity sub rosa can be expelled! In these groves of academe, logic and justice have been torn from the roots of the institution 's culture, and discarded as one would a poisonous weed. Equal opportunity for women and men to participate in greek life exists throughout North America, and arguments to the contra ry are specious . Looking to the future, for the few, and perhaps it will become a tiny monastic few, there must be an opportunity at every institution of higher learning for students to choose with whom they wish to live and associate. The toleration of diverse opinions and perspectives to which virtuall y all colleges ascribe, and the pluralism which almost all seek to instill, on these terms alone, greek chapters must be allowed to remain single, or bi, or trans, or homo, or any-sex. For colleges to mandate otherwise, constitutes the height of hypocrisy .

For the Good of the Order Undergraduates must communicate more consistently and effectively with alumni to stimulate interest and involvement. A sporadic diet of nothing but "urgent" financial appeals will not stimulate interest. Alumni, in turn, must respond by moving their chapters and the DU Educational Foundation to a higher position in their charitable giving priorities . The rise in fixed costs to maintain a chapter house and support the undergraduates who live in it, must be absorbed somewhere. If we consider this as solely an undergraduate challenge, the costs to join DU will very soon force chapters to recruit on the basis of family wealth rather than merit. The only assertion I have made here that cannot be debated, is that change will occur. The foregoing are my thoughts on how that change might manifest itself for the continued success and future existenc e of Delta Upsilon, and her interfraternal brothers and sisters . I welcome thoughts and opinions in suppor t or to the contrary. By acknowledging that significant change is necessary, however, the effects of a swinging pendulum can be managed to create a stronge r brotherhood for tomorrow. From 1983 to 1985, Broth er Holland conducted over 75 visits to DU chapters across North America as a member of the Fraternity's professional staff. Since 1990 he has been employed by the DU Educational Foundation, and currently serves as its Executive Director.



Health & Wellness

The "Other STDs" or "What you don't know can kill you." by Dr. John R. Eplee, Kansas State '75


attending the last two DU Leadership Institutes, I was quite impressed with the maturity level of the undergraduate brothers in attendance and the subject material presented. I was very encouraged as an alumnus trustee for my chapter to hear the presentations on AIDS and the positive HIVawareness that followed. This was the first time I had seen the AIDS quilt and understood what it represents. As a family physician, however, I thought repeatedly about the multiple other deadly sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) that we weren't discussing or learning about. As of this writing, there are over 20 categories of STDs. Within some of those categories there are literally hundreds of different types or subsets of bacteria and viruses . To simplify, let's review the top five current STDs, excluding HIY. Since AIDS has been addre ssed at our DU Leadership Institutes, and we hear about HIV infection in our media, I thought we should focus on "the other major STDs." First, one definition to get straight: the formerly used term morbus venerus, or venereal disea se, has been supplanted by the term, sexually transmitted disease (STD). The term STD denotes any of several diseases acquired through sexual inter course or other genital contact. Gonorrhea This bacterial disease is one of the most important STDs that we must discuss because of its



high incidence and serious complications. About 700,000 cases are reported each year in the United States. Only 25%, however, get reported. The 20-24 year old age group has the highest case rate, and the 15 to 19 year age group is second. Transmission is virtually exclusively through sexual contact - oral, vaginal, or anal. The most common symptom in males is urethritis (drainage of pus from the penis) typically two to six days after exposure. Infection can spread into the testicles or prostate. If left untreated, gonorrhea can evolve into severe arthritis. Early treatment and care with appropriate antibiotics are readily available from a physician. Chlamydia trachomatis This has been recognized as the most common sexually transmitted pathogen among adults and teenagers. The difficulty with treating chlamydia is the problem with culturing it. It is believed that up to 50% of all cases are missed because of difficulty in isolating the organism. Virtually all cases are sexually transmitted. Fifteen to thirty percent of males with urethritis have coexistent gonorrhea . A late complication of chlamydia is the transmission of this bacteria to infants during childbirth in infected mothers. This can also occur with gonorrhea. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential to be cured of this infection with current antibiotics.

Syphilis Another bacterial infection whose sole transmission is through sexual contact, the incidence of syphilis in the United States declined rapidly after World War II from 70,000 cases/year to less than 10,000 cases per year in 1956. But since then the number of cases has risen steadily to a rate approaching the pre-World Wir II incidence. Men are thought to have an incidence two and one half times more often than women. The peak incidence is in young adults, 20 to 24 years old. When mandatory blood testing was required for obtaining a marriage license in most states, it was helpful in detecting new cases of syphilis. But as the rate of syphilis fell, states eliminated the blood test requirement. Due to the controversy over mandatory AIDS blood testing, the current legal environment would support the rights and privacy of the individual over the rights and safety of the population as a whole. The incubation period for syphilis is nine to 90 days with an average of 21 days . Syphilis is characterized by a solitary ulcer , called a chancre, at the point of inoculation. The ulcer usually averages one half inch or one centimeter in diameter. If left untreated, it can develop into secondary and latent syphilis. As with gonorrhea and chlamydia, infants born to infected mothers can have many health complications. Penicillin continues to be the optimal drug to treat syphilis. However, in secondary and latent syphilis, it is much harder to eradicate or cure an infected individual. Early diagnosis and treatment is imperative. Herpes Genitalis This STD, unlike the first three, is caused by a virus, he/pes simplex. Although there are two


general categories of herpes virus, 85 - 90% of genital infections are caused from herpes simplex virus #2 (HSV 2). HSV 1 (herpes simplex 1) is the virus that causes fever blisters. Unlike gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis, there is no cure for this disease. There is now medication available to lessen the severity of the initial outbreak or the frequency of attacks. This STD keeps on giving (itself) to the host organism, and attacks are characterized as breaking out with clumps of markedly painful blisters called vesicles on the penis or scrotum. These small blisters typically have white centers. The base of the vesicles are very red. The initial outbreak is always the worst, and the incidence of this disease is increasing rapidly. Transmission is through sexual contact, either genitalgenital or oral-genital, and the incubation period averages eight days. Anyone with active lesions should abstain from intercourse until the lesions are clearly healed. Maternal-fetal transmission results in a 50% fetal death rate. Human Pappilloma Virus Like Herpes Genitalis, this is also an SID transmitted by a virus. It is commonly manifested as venereal warts, or what doctors call condyloma acuminata. Furthermore, like herpes it cannot be eradicated by any medication, only controlled with treatment. This virus would appear to be more active in women than men perhaps because we understand it much better in women. Some experts feel that this virus may well cause cancer of the female cervix. Certainly there is a frequent association of this virus in women who develop abnormal PAP smears. Conversely, some other physicians feel that this virus may have a strong association with uncircum-

cised men in the development of cancer of the glans penis. There are over 60 types (genotypes) of this virus identified to date. If you have never seen venereal warts, they appear as small "flesh-like" pink skin nubs. These small growths typically occur in parallel rows at the edge of the glans. For a man to be screened for this disease, many doctors will perform a simple clinical exam, while others will recommend that their male patients have androscopy performed. This is a magnification scope to look over the entire male genital area. If anything looks suspicious, possible biopsies will follow. Even though all the warts can easily be removed in the doctor's office in anyone of many methods, there is no guarantee that this virus will not recur. As with Herpes Genitalis, this is a virus that wants to keep on giving itself to the patient with a very real risk for cancer of the genitourinary tract. In conclusion, follow these simple guidelines, exercise some discipline, and we can all stay healthy and enjoy a full yet responsible sex life, free of worries from the STDs discussed above: 1) Number one and most important is that abstinence is the best policy. And while this may sound too traditional, more and more sex-ed teaching models are returning to this statement. 2) If you are sexually active, always use a latex condom. Certainly there are no guarantees by using a condom, but it really improves your chances of survival. Spermicidal creams are also helpful to decrease viral/bacterial transmission.

have had many sex partners in their past, particularly in the past six months. 4) Don't engage in sex with prostitutes. Studies clearly show the incidence of STDs among prostitutes is 10 times higher than the general population. 5) Don't engage in sex with many different persons. Even with precautions, it is only a matter of time until the numbers catch up with you. 6) Consider getting a complete physical including screening for STDs before you get married. This would be reasonable to discuss with your prospective spouse and encouraging her to do the same. It is better to be safe. 7) Avoid sexual relationships with individuals who are IV drug users. The incidence of STDs in this population alone is estimated to exceed 50 times that of the regular population. 8) If you think you have acquired an STD, seek medical help immediately. The quicker the diagnosis, the quicker and more effective the treatment. 9) Don't be afraid to ask questions about any STD. There is such a wealth of misinformation when it comes to STDs, that there are simply "no dumb questions." Please consult with your regular physician or his staff to get the accurate answers.
