REPORT OF THE PRESICENT

Only a very small percentage of college students participates in violent or illegal campus demonstrations. vVe make a mistake, though, if we draw from that the inference that the great majority of students is content with the status quo, or that they necessarily condemn those who do use force.

It is my opinion, based on talking and listening to a lot of undergraduates over the past school year, that almost all of them (including many of the politically conservative) are greatly opposed to much of today's governmental and business philosophy. It goes without saying, of course, that almost all young people are bitterly opposed to the Vietnam war, and want it stopped immediately at almost any price. It plainly is the prime alienating factor in the "generation gap" . .. and as long as that war continues it will make our young people increasingly critical of a society that wages war fiercely against man, but hardly at all against poverty, disease, governmental and business corruption where it exists, and the ecological deterioration of our land. Most students do not want violence, either on the campus or off. But they do very much want change! They believe that a nation that has the skills and the money to send men to the moon has the skills and the money to clean up our rivers and lakes and air, and that a nation that has the money and the manpower to wage a war halfway around the world has the ability to clear our slums and to make more rapid progress in the peaceful integration of our races. The more I listen to them, the less I am inclined to disagree.

Fmternally yours,

DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

Fout' New Chapters Added

Installations in Wisconsin, Tennessee, Texas, and Nebrask~a Strengthen Fraternity HE installation of four new chapters of Delta Upsilon over a span of five weeks in April and May, a new growth record for the Fraternity, brought four flourishing young groups into Delta U and created a tremendous flurry of activity for the Fraternity staff. Beginning with the Creighton installation on the weekend of April 11, the colonies at University of Texas-Arlington, ·Wisconsin State-Platteville, and University of Tennessee were all brought into the fold by May 17. This brings to eighty-seven the total number of active chapters, with ten colonies and petitioning societies presently working toward their charters, indicating that Delta Upsilon should reach the 100 mark within the next three or four years.

T

Delta Upsilon's eighty-fourth active chapter was installed at Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska, on the weekend of April 11-12, 1969. It marked the first installation of the spring season, and the first time that Delta Upsilon had entered a predominantly Catholic institution.

Kappa Gamma Sigma, a local fraternity formed in 1967, petitioned Delta Upsilon in that same year, and made rapid progress toward the achievement of goals required of petitioners for a chapter charter: The Board of Directors approved the installation at the February meeting on the recommendation of the New Chapters Committee. Rite One activities, and the orientation meeting for all initiate candidates was held in the Union Pacific Room of the Library by special arrangement with the president of the University. A separate meeting was held with the fine group of faculty initiates which the members of Kappa Gamma Sigma had invited to join them as members of the new chapter. Heading the installation team from the International Fraternity were Harry W. McCobb, Michigan '25, Chairman of the Board of Directors; Jay C. Grimes, Province X governor, who had assisted with the preliminary presentation to the local fraternity; and James N . Graham, assistant executive secretary; William H. Bried of the field staff, and Executive Secretary Butler.

Orville Read, Nlissotlri '33, Delta Upsilon presid ent, led the installation team which included James Graham, assistant executive secretary; John Knezovich of the field staff; and W. A. Butler, executive secretary. On Saturday afternoon the initiate candidates as路 sembled at the St. Mary's church which is not far from the present chapter house. There the rite of cbapter installation, the initiation of the first members of the chapter, and installation of officers took p l ace. Brother Read presented the charter of the chapter to President Terry D. Meacham. Although the day had been overcast, the sun appeared briefly for the raising of the flag in front of the chapter house. A new Delta Upsilon sign had also been prepared to announce the new chapter. In the evening the installation banquet was held in the Student Center for the brothers and scheduled guests from the University administration . I3rother Graham was the toastmaster and introduced University President Dr. Bjarne Ullsvik, AI路 pha Sigma Phi, who welcomed Delta Upsilon in behalf of the University. Brother Read responded and Brother Butler then called on William Malloy, N orthem Illinois '69, president of the Northern Illinois chapter, who presented the new chapter with a Canadian flag, symbolizing our international brother路 hood. Executive Secretary Butler then called on other members of the installation team to make presentations to the chapter and Richard Grunow, a founding member of the local Fraternity, Phi Sigma Chi, ahd a charter member of the chapter, made remarks in behalf of the alumni. The toastmaster then gave special recognition to Delta Upsilon brothers Sheldon Wills, Nebmska '02;

The University of Tennessee chapter of Delta Upsilon Fraternity was installed on the weekend of May 16-17 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The ritual team, headed by Harry ¡W. McCobb, Michigan '25, chairman of the Board of Directors, commenced the installation activities with a period of orientation and examination for all candidates on Friday evening. There followed the first rite of the initiation, and the m eeting with the chapter executive committee. On Saturday the overcast skies cleared just enough to permit the n ecessary group photographs outside, and not to dampen the spirits of the n ew initiates and their guests who crowded Tyson House Chapel on the campus. Dani el B. Blair, Ohio Slate '49, the chap ter Deputy acted as the Chaplain. James N . Graham, assistant execu tive secretary, delivered the charge. Brother McCobb read the installation ceremony, and the charter of the chapter was presented by W. D. ''''atkins, NOl'th Carolina '27, a director of D elta Upsilon and chairman of the Chapter Loan Fund Committee, to chapter president Noel Freesh , T ennessee '71. H. K. DevVees, Ohio State '22, a former director of Delta Upsilon and p as t chairman of the Committee on Graduate Activities, assisted Brother McCobb in the presenta tion of the insignia to the new initiate class. Also assisting with the ceremonies was "Villiam Bried of the field staff. After the installation, Executive Secretary Butler installed the first class of officers of the chapter and the group recessed for congratulations and a formal photograph. Flag raising at the chapter house . was next, and it included the removal of the large letter "A" from the front of the house, leaving only the Delta and Upsilon signifying the change brought about by the installation from colony to chapter.

Chapter Dejyuty Dan iel B. Blair, sjJeahing ell the Tennessee installation banquet, issued an invitation to all area Della U alumni to join the local alumni club.

An attractive hand-lettered sign welcoming officers and guests had been prepared and the letter "A" was also painted out on the sign a t the same time, making the change doubly official.

A reception for representatives from the other cl.apters in Province V and invited guests followed a 1: the student center. In the evening, the Installation Banquet at the Andrew Johnson Hotel featured remarks by Bert E. Sams, advisor to fraternities at the University and a member of Alpha Tau Omega; an alumni response by Brother H. K. DeWees in behalf of Province V Governor, W. Howard Allen, who was unable to attend; and alumni response from Deputy Daniel B. Blair; and the appropriate acknowledgment of the University welcome by Chairman McCobb.

Reeve Kelsey, president of the "Vashington and Lee chapter, presented Brother Freesh with a Canadian flag representing the International concept of the Fraternity, and Brother Bried presented the United States flag. Presentations of bound copies of the DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY were made by Assistant Executive Secretary Graham, and Brother Butler presented the copy of BainZ's Nlanual to the new chapter. After the Installation Banquet concluded there was a formal dance for the newly installed brothers and their guests and dates.

Fraternity Headquarters Move Improves Efficiency OVING from about 1,500 square feet of usable space at 271 Madison Avenue in New York City, into more than 3,000 square feet of space in Indianapolis has made a dramatic change in the effectiveness of the operation of the Fraternity office. The space at 271 was ample when the Fraternity first occupied it nearly 30 years ago. Since that time the number of chapters and members have doubled, and the size of the staff increased accordingly to provide services to today's 87 undergraduate chapters, 10 colonies and petitioning groups, and the rapidly-growing total of Delta Upsilon alumni. In New York, space had been acquired on a piecemeal basis as it was available and as the need presented an absolute necessity for more room. As a result the layout of the space did not allow a flow of work or adequate supervision of all of the staff. In our new offices we occupy a contiguous, well planned space which improves the work output. The New York offices were in a 40路year-old building. Our Indianapolis offices are in a just-completed, modern, well-ligh ted, and air conditioned office structure. One of the new facilities provided in the Indianapolis offices is a small meeting room, which has already been used several times by staff, chapter officers, and alumni groups. The Undergraduate Activities Committee will hold its meeting at the headquarters in June, and it is expected that there will be an increasing number of chapter executive committees who will make use of the room for special orientation and discussion sessions. The October issue of the QUARTERLY will carry a special photo feature on the new offices, as well as a series of maps with directions for visitors. At the present time the furnishings are being completed, and it is expected that there will be an open house for area undergraduates and alumni announced sometime this summer. Concurrent with the relocation of the Fraternity headquarters, a special headquarters planning and

site selection committee was authorized by the Board of Directors. The committee is functioning under the Committee on Administration on which C. Earl Schooley, iVIissomi '28, is the chairman. The new committee has already held several meetings. Chairman of the planning and site selection group is Frank B. Jones, Indiana '46, long-time Province Governor, and alumni secretary of Indiana University. University alumni offices and fraternity headquarters perform similar functions and services, so Brother Jones' experience is very helpful to the committee. Other members of the site selection and planning committee include: J. Robert Cutter, Indiana '52; who was responsible for original data collection and research whiclT was used by the Review Committee in its recommendation of Indianapolis as the headquarters location; Howard Kahlenbeck, Jr., Indiana '52, a local attorney associated with the firm of Krieg, DeVault, Alexander & Capehart, and an active alumnus of the Indiana chapter who has served on the corporation board of the chapter; Buert R. SerVaas, Indiana 路' 41, president of SerVaas Incorporated and president of the Marion County Council; Orville H. Read, M.issow路i '33, Delta Upsilon president; and Harry W. McCobb, Michigan '25, cllairman of the Board of Directors. Extensive on-site inspection of properties and various area location.s have occupied a good deal of the time of members of the committee. Air and land inspection of the final site recommendations was made in early June, and it is expected that the committee will make its recommendations to the Board of Directors in the near future. The committee has established several preliminary criteria which should insure the continuing value of the selected sites and the areas surrounding them both for the immediate future and as a longterm proposition. Accessibility to major highway networks, air transportation, mail service and services are among the criteria which the committee has determined.

Attendance Record Expected

"A Time for Excellence" Is Theme of 135th Convention and Leadership Conference

l

HREE hundred and fifty or more undergraduates are expected to arrive in Columbia, Missouri, on August 26 for the 135th annual Convention and Leadership Conference, being held on the University of Missouri campus from August 26 through August 30. With room, board, and scheduled entertainment furnished without charge to all chapter officers, along with the official Convention delegate from each chapter, most of our eighty-seven active chapters and ten colonies and petitioning groups will be sending three to five men to the annual meeting so that they can have a broad participation in the several different training sessions which are held simultaneously in various areas of chapter operations and leadership development. As always, a varied program is planned, with a mixture of a lot of hard work and some good entertainment. An innovation this year will be attendance at a NFL professional football exhibition game in St. Louis. Several chartered busses will take the Conference participants from Columbia to the beautiful new Memorial Stadium in St. Louis for the Friday evening contest between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Kansas Ci ty Chiefs. From the arrival of the first undergraduates early on Tuesday, activities will be numerous, with one of the first features being a conference of the six Canadian chapters, with delegates and chapter officers meeting with Fraternity officers and staff members. Among the topics to be discussed at the Tuesday morning meeting will be expansion in Canada, development of alumni programs and activities, and housing. Individual conferences with members of the Leadership Conference and staff will follow in the afternoon. While the Canadians have traditionally met with Fraternity officers and staff at an informal breakfast each year, this is the first time that a full-scale separate conference for them has been scheduled. Colony and petitioning group representatives will also meet on Tuesday morning with officers and staff members to discuss their progress and special Alpha Delta Upsilon and 1834 programs. Project chapter interviews will be held during Tuesday afternoon, as chapters whose performance falls below the standards of the Superior Chapter Program review their activities. There will be an informal welcoming session at dinner time and the balance of the evening will be

"A Time far Excellence," Delta Upsilon'S 135th anniversary theme, will also be the theme of the Leadership Conference which opens an Wednesday marning and continues through Friday. The first day will probe the use af goal setting and problem analysis as a means af develaping leadership skills and impraving chapter operatians. Workshop seminars in six fields will occupy much af the three-day Conference. It is because these six seminars run cancurrently that it is advantageous far chapters to. send several officers to Columbia so that they may participate in each area that is of interest or concern to them. Cultural programming and scholarship, development of members (pledging), public relations, rush, and finances are the major topics, with the seminar for chapter presidents being held at the same time. It is expected that at least sixty chapter presidents will be in attendance. (Continued on page 114)

These grants also have made it possible to expand the content of the training program and to pay the expenses of additional educators who now participate in the program.

Philosophy of Charles Evans Hughes Is Reflected by Today's New Initiates Editol"s Note: One of Delta Upsilon's most illustTious membas was the late Charles Evans Hughes, Chief Justice of the United States, and a life-long DU. It is inteTesting to contmst Hughes' l'eactions and obsel'vations about Delta Uj)silon at vaTious times in his life against some wl'itten just a few weeks ago by newly-initiated membel's. Speaking of the first Delta Upsilon Convention which he attended, Hughes wrote to his parents : "It seems as if I had known all of them (the delegates) through my whole college life. All of our delegates .were true men. You may imagine a crowd

lege life; it seeks to make scholars of them, and in college life to develop the faculties by social relation and through delightful relation with each other."

"I believe in the discipline of Delta Upsilon and I consider it altogether the best discipline I ever got and without disparaging my instructors in Colgate and Brown, I would say that I got here my standards that made it mean that men shall be worthwhile, the desire that everyone shall excel in a worthy way, without being over-conscious of his efforts, the desire of excellence of work in college and moral worth." These thoughts by undergraduate members were written just prior to their initiation at one of the newly installed Dela Upsilon chapters this spring: "There are several qualities and experiences in life that comprise a man's character. One is his relationship with other people; his ability to be dependable and honest; a feeling for life and other people. Delta Upsilon has as much as anyone experience shaped some of these things in me."

* * * "The friendship which comes from Delta Upsilon is something special. It is b1'OtheTlwod which is unique about Delta Upsilon."

COMMENT ON FRATERNITY

The Courage to Be Leaders The other day we sat in earnest, heated discussion with a group of chapter and alumni leaders. The chapter was going through a period of adjustment. Changing times had thrust upon these men new responsibilities and new challenges, which were not easily ignored. Fraternity chapters by their very nature (and Delta Upsilon chapters are no exception) tend to carry forward much of their planning from previous years in traditional forms. Because the chapter leadership changes so frequently, alumni are vital as a source of continuity and as a catalyst to assist in the creation of an environment in which change is accepted rather than being looked on with suspicion. Yet, it is distressing to see how few chapters actually come to grips with the challenges facing them as a result of change. We all prefer the familiar, that which we know. It is difficult to predict or to project the future when the immediate, pressing problems of the day tend to obscure the need for looking ahead. To deal with change requires a dedication, a belief, a direction, and the courage to face these days and those in the future. It requires courage to plan, and there is no more important task facing the leadership of our chapters and our Fraternity. For we can debate the wisdom of change, we can argue for the old "tried and true" ways, or we can anticipate and deal with the challenges presented by the present, thus insuring a chance to deal with the days of the future .

'!\T.

CLIFFORD , Dean of Student Affairs, Rutgers University-The State University of New Jersey

TUDENT demands, riots, building takeovers, and similm' happenings over the last two yem"s have caused town and gown alike to give special attention to these particular aspects of the campus scene. There are many efforts underway at colleges th1"Oughout the United States and Canada to t1y to meet the needs and expectations of the students. One of the of tenheard complaints on campus is that the individual student is the forgotten man; that he is powerless to deal with college bureaucmcy; that his problems go lm"gely unattended; and that he needs a penon to whom he can tum to inteTCede for him. This has tmditionally been the 1"Ole of the student personnel deans. Many students, some college ofjicen, and even a few deans do not understand this role, and in some cases it is not being exercised. As a consequence several colleges have turned to a relatively new concept, the ombudsman. This involved a person acting as an official "complaint department," one who can ask questions of anyone on campus, give attention to individual student complaints about the policies and procedures of the institution, and attempt to get the projler officer or official on the campus to take corrective action in regard to student problems and complaints. Some colleges have embraced strongly the concept of the ombudsman as one of the answers to student protests and dissatisfaction. Others have opposed the idea as yet another filter through which the student mllst pass to get anything accomplished. Last fall a national conference was held in Det1"Oit on "The Ombudsman in Amel"ican Higher Education." Ea1"le Cliff01"d, University Dean of Student Affairs at Rutgen, the State Unive1"Sity of New leney, presented some very cogent views on the subject of the ombudsman. He was invited to present his views because he had publicly contested the validity Of the ombudsman concept two yean ago when the idea was fint suggested. The QUARTERLY is pleased to publish Dean Clifford's 1"Cmarks because of the relevance to higher education today. O.E.P.

Perhaps it is because I am weary of educational "gimmickry"; perhaps it is because I am "up tight" about losing my job to the competition; perhaps this is just one conference too many. '!\Thatever the reason, it is probably in order for me to go on the record at the outset of these comments as unimpressed with the potential or promise of an ombudsman on the higher education scene. To be more specific my biases are such that in my view appointment of an ombudsman by an university administration seems analagous to putting a DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

penny in the fuse box when a circuit has blown. Said another way, a decision to go the ombudsman route is a fine advertisement for the failure of an administration in general or a student personnel program in particular to meet responsibilities for equity and communication in an academic community. With such a beginning the direction of these "second thoughts" on the ombudsman should be clear. What follows will attempt to address the substance of the stance indicated, suggest "three cases" where it does seem to me the ombudsman concept has some relevancy and propose as especially valid one very particular application of the ombudsman function within the academic community. Let me turn then to a consideration of my general reaction to the idea of an ombudsman in higher education. Donald C. Rowatt in his "The Ombudsman" describes the office in the governmental setting as a "device for controlling bureaucracy." Much of that text, which is probably something of a handbook for the practitioner, outlines the ombudsman models that either have been introduced or are proposed for adoption in a variety of countries seeking democracy as a style of political life. Thematically there are explicit or implicit assumptions that these bureaucratic governmental organizations have no prospect of generating, on their own, provisions for the protection of citizens. This reference and other materials lead me to the conclusion that those who view the ombudsman in higher education in a favorable light perceive: 1) That by their nature and because of their increasing size and complexity, institutions of higher education in America must, of necessity, become increasingly bureaucratized, increasingly impersonal, and increasingly, therefore, the victim of all the ills symptomatic of governmental bureaucracy. 2) That there is no possibility, by effecting change in existing organizational patterns, of providing the personnel and processes properly committed to equity and communication-and of course that those processes and commitments do not now exist, and 3) That those who are charged now with the responsibility for providing such checks on the misuse of power and authority are unlikely to promote regular evaluation of the results of their efforts and the need for improvement. Let me agree that the record does tend to document the problem in these terms and to support such assumptions. We have moved rapidly in higher

117


education, especially over the past five years, to "buy" the organizational patterns of government and big business. The institution today that does not have at least four or five vice-presidents and a bevy of assistant vice-presidents is really not "with it." Officers frequently have proliferated almost as rapidly as courses on many college campuses and the "faceless" dean or the president who "really doesn't exist" has entered the parlance of students. On the forge of efficiency, economy, and just plain bigness we have fashioned something called an identity crisis for our students. It is clear also that many colleges and universities have not invested adequate energies in devising means to protect students, faculty, and administrators-all members of the academic communityfrom the abuse or misuse of power and authority. The 1940 AAUP provisions for the faculty and the more recent "Joint Statement on the Rights and Freedoms of Students" were at least in part necessary because of such inattention to essential protections. Further, because it is a tedious task if properly done and a burden added to regular responsibility, it is unlikely that the student personnel staff at a college or the administration in general will engage periodically in effective assessment of their success, or lack of it, in communication or in providing processes clearly visible to the individual for the redress of any grievance. Such confirmation of the problem, however, does not lead me to leap, with many in this room, to the ombudsman as an answer. In fact, as a permanent post on the campus it may simply add another stop for students seeking speedy resolution of a problem. ''''here the necessary procedures are both available and visible the best that can be said of the role of the ombudsman is that he serves as a "traffic cop," routing a student to the office responsible for dealing with his problem. And as one student has commented "who needs another information booth on campus." Appointment of an ombudsman could serve to convince members of an academic community that no real remedy will be sought for problems that have been identified. It can also encourage those who have ombudsman responsibilities throughout the institution that they need to give less attention to that function since it has been assigned to a special staff member. The ombudsman, to me therefore, smacks too much of the "gimmick," too much of the simplistic response to a complex problem, and too little of a willingness to confront the challenge of the real problem and its causes. What we need instead of an ombudsman, is a rejection of the organizational pattern of business and government that takes us down the road to galloping bureaucracy. We need to reassess the uniqueness of the academic community and its mission. We need to create, not a new office, but a new model of the organization. In a word, it seems to me that we have already borrowed too much and adapted to too poor a fit from government and business. . 118

What we need is a student personnel staff and a college administration willing to recognize the message of the "Joint Statement" that protection against the abuse and misuse of authority and power is especially crucial in an academic community and demands, therefore, first priority. "Ve need, in other words, a dean of students with the courage, conviction and commitment to be the ombudsman and more for students on his campus. Anel, further, we need to be alert to the processes which are not functioning and to provide for regu-

lar review by the responsible staff members and the students they serve of whether there is need for improvement. The visit of an accrediting team is not the timing, the type or the style of evaluation that makes sense in this context. A hard-nosed, shirtsleeved exercise on an annual basis is what is in order. My plea here can be simply stated. Let's treat the cause of our problem, not just the symptom. It

will take more work, probably will be fraught with the risk of failure, and is likely to be much less fashionable. If we can tackle the task creatively and courageously, however, the resulting up-grading of the quality of our life together will be well worth it. And we might even establish some models that government and business could adopt or adapt. Does all of this suggest that in taking a second look at the ombudsman concept I drew a complete blank? Quite the contrary is the case. Let me suggest now three types of situations that would lead me to consider as at least one alternative the appointment of a staff member having the ombudsman's function. Case number one involves a college or university opening its doors for the first time. It seems. to me that during the first student generation, on a temporary basis, there might be some value to the appointment of a staff member visible to the entire academic community as having the functions of an ombudsman. Such an appointment would publicly commit the institution to the .development of a pattern of organization that would guarantee effective communication and clearly visible opportunities to redress grievances. This, in fact, would be the major or planning phase of the ~'ombuds足 man's" responsibilities. His "fire-fighting" would be directed to identifying issues as valuable in-put for program development. Once the appropriate provisions had been built, including a pattern of periodic evaluation, the "ombudsman" as a special function should no longer be needed. Case number two involves an institution in crisis. In some respects the Cox commission at Columbia is the extreme example. Institutions here at this meeting have initiated an ombudsman under similar if less traumatic conditions. The value here of an objective "outside-the-system" investigation is hardly disputable. Where the problem, as it did at Columbia, suggests some severe changes in the pattern of organization and the processes for review and redress of grievances, the "ombudsman" might continue to serve for several months or perhaps a year or two. However, the service would not be in terms of fire fighting, but implementation of the crisis created reform program. Case number three involves the evaluation dimension of the previous comments. For some time now, I have been attempting to identify a viable mode! for justifying a sabbatical leave program for student personnel administrators. The "hang up" has usually been dollars and the one year replacement of a staff member with significant responsibilities. It seems to me that a chief student personnel officer at one institution could serve admirably as an "ombudsman" at another institution during a sabbatical year. He could be on leave from "home" and paid by the host institution. He could serve well as an objective professional assessor of the extent to which that institution had accomplished its responsibilities to protect against the abuse or misuse of power and to redress error when committed. Here again the tenure would be temporary -and actually the visiting dean would only he do-

119


ing what comes naturally since the ombudsman's functions are essentially his in any event if he is doing his job. More than these three cases however, there is an even more particular application of the ombudsman concept that is attractive to me. For more than 15 years now I have worked on several college campuses with a variety of student governments. If there is one problem typical of all student governments it is one of developing effective communication with the remainder of the student body. It is almost certain today that without some special effort a student government cannot claim to be serving each of its constituents, cannot claim to know student opinion, cannot claim to be representing student interests. The problem is a complex one and a number of creative attempts have been made to face and solve it. One that had limited success for about two years at Rutgers College was something called a "sounding board"-a committee of ombudsmen. This approach built in most of the principles of the ombudsman and made student government on that campus during those years a viable force in decision-making because it was a more reliable representative of student views and concerns.

What I am suggesting is that although I see no regular and permanent future for ombudsman as university staff members there may be a place for such an officer or officers as aids to a student government. Only the University of Arkansas to my knowledge has attempted such an approach to date and it may be too early to evaluate the success of that experiment. Since the winning candidate for president of student government at Arkansas ran on a single plank platform featuring only the institution of such a program, there is some indication that students at Arkansas responded well to the idea. And if a student government can become more effectively representative via its appointment of an ombudsman, students on such a campus will participate with an enhanced role in university governance. My "second thoughts" about the ombudsman concept therefore add up to three separate propositions: 1) Appointment of an ombudsman as a permanent addition to a college staff is, in my judgment, attempting to treat the symptoms, not the causes, of very real problems that do, in fact, exist.

Democratic R ejJresentation: ReajJportionment In Law and Politics by Robert G. Dixon, Symcuse '43. Oxford University Press, 1968, 654 p. Robert G. Dixon, Jr., is Professor of Law in the National Law Center, George Washington University. He holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from Syracuse and the LL.B. from George Washington University; he has been a Ford Foundation Faculty Fellow at Stanford University Law School. He has taught at Syracuse University and at the University of Maryland and has served as consultant on reapportionment to several state constitutional conventions. He was on leave in 1964-65 under a Rockefeller Foundation grant for research on representation and reapportionment. During 1965-66 he was chairman of the Committee on Supreme Court Decisions of the Association of American Law Schools. Dr. Dixon has written numerous articles and reviews and is co-author of two books: Ame1'ican Government, Basic Documents and Materials; and A djusting Municipal Boundaries. The publishers have made the following statements concerning Dr. Dixon's scholarly book: "The Supreme Court's 'one man-one vote' mandate is bringing revolutionary changes in the composition of American legislative assemblies, traditionally regarded as the core of democratic government. Reapportionment is the order of the day and it will become even more imperative after population changes are recorded by the 1970 census. This book seeks to lay the foundation for a reasoned dialogue on the principles of fair representation. "Dr. Dixon explores the issue of 'equal representation' in all its complexity, setting it in historical perspective. He questions the extent to which simply 'adjusting the population of election districts, without regard to political parties and interest groupings, can equalize citizen influence on governmental decision-making and legislation: He suggests that the problem of defining the true popular majority, and related matters of malrepresentation of interests are just as important as malapportionment of people ; and he reviews many aspects of such problems in respect to both political procedures and constitutionality. He projects his discussion of unresolved redistricting and reapportionment problems into the next decade. "Seldom has an issue on the frontier of public law-involving the continuing interaction of courts, legislatures, and political forces-received so thorough and extensive an analysis.

man dering, the 'Dirksen Amendment' campaign, the role of bipartisan commissions, computer use, the relation of apportionment to party competition and legislative outcomes, local apportionment, and the potential impact of apportionment on judicial election districts and on the electoral college.

meaningful membership in the body politic. The goal, and the challenge, he believes, is to build a political system that allows for unity and diversity, majority representation and minority safeguards, yielding a stable, fair, and dynamic government." In the journal The Social Studies, C. Herman Pritchett of the University of Chicago and pastpresident of the American Political Science Association, reviews Dr. Dixon's book in a most favorable style. This book by Brother Dixon is a great credit to him and to scholarship and adds distinction to the list of Syracuse chapter authors.

ponement of confrontation with those causes can convert problems of organization and process into crises. 2) As a temporary appointment under limited types of conditions the ombudsman does have a contribution to make. His "life effectiveness" however should probably be limited to no more than a college generation and always timed to terminate with the development of effective changes within the existing organization. 3) Perhaps the more fruitful application of the concept is to support student government in a style designed to resolve its communication problems with the remainder of the student body. At the beginning of these comments I suggested that perhaps I was "up tight" about losing my job to the competition. Let me point out in conclusion that, quite obviously, it is my conviction the omblidsman function as it relates to student affairs is at the core of the responsibilities of the Dean of Students and his staff. For faculty and student academic matters the function is fundamental to the academic dean's role. If those responsibilities are being met there is no real need for an ombudsman ; if they are not, changes should be made in organization, personnel and process or all threenot by adding another potential bureaucrat.

Twenty-five alumni were present to welcome Executive Director Bill Butler and the Fraternity headquarters to our state and the city of Indianapolis. Brothers Don \"'eaver and Terry Clapacs of Indiana University provided an alumni report to the group on the status of the IU chapter. Executive Director Butler explained the fraternity system as it exists today on the campuses of the United Sta tes. The election of officers for 1969-1970 was conducted and the following brothers were elected to serve for the coming year: Porter Murphy, president; Harry Burkart, vice president; J. Robert Gutter, secretary; and Fred Carpenter, treasurer. Key speaker of the evening was Buert SerVaas, president, IvIarion County Council, and a prime mover of UNIGOV, the metropolitan government proposal which successfully passed the 1969 Indiana General Assembly. Brother SerVaas has provided the Fraternity with temporary headquarters pending the location of a site and construction of a building. His inspiring talk brought us a new in-

sight into local government problems. Delta U psiIon is fortunate to have Brother SerVaas serving the Indianapolis community. It is with deep sorrow that we report the untimely passing of Jake Swanson-a dedicated DU alumnus. Brother Swanson died suddenly on May 1 from a heart attack. He served the Fraternity as president of the DU alumni club.

naturally greatly increased the value of the Conference to the participating chapters. Undergraduates other than officers are also welcome during the Conference and Convention week at their own expense, within the limits of the available facilities. This year such visitors may participate in all functions, and have their room and board and entertainment furnished, for a fee of $55.00 per man for the week (again within the limit of available facilities). Undergraduates will be housed at the Mark Twain dormitory on campus-a new air·conditioned facility which includes a large swimming pool. Officers and other alumni will be housed at one of the several modern motels near the school. The new Arts and Science building on campus will be the site of all Conference and Convention sessions, and the Missouri chapter house will serve as an informal meeting cen tel'. '''Then the official Convention sessions begin on Saturday morning, the Convention chairman will be Justus Putsch, ]Hissou-ri '29, operator of six restaurants in the Kansas City area. Brother Putsch is president of the American Roy-. al Horse and Livestock Show, the famous annual Kansas City event, and is a past president of the Missouri Restaurant Association and a past vice president of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Com· . merce. He has served on the board of directors of the N ational Restaurant Association since 1953 and was its president in 1963-64. Direction of the Leadership Conference program is the responsibility of O. Edward Pollock, Virginia '51, chairman of the Committee on Undergraduate Activities, assisted by H erbert E. Smith, Indiana '50, educational director and director of leadership development programs for Delta Upsilon. Planning for the week h as also occupied a major part of the time of the entire profession al staff of the Fraternity. Meantime, a large team of undergraduate members of the Missouri chapter has been handling local arrangements, with Richard Fenner coordinating activities. James Loveless and Larry Barker are hanclling alumni housing; Doug Shores is responsible for publicity; Ted Murray heads the speakers' committee; Jack Heeter is handling the registration staff; Steve Balsamo is in charge of transportation; and Larry Fuller is arranging for chaplains. Tell Neff, a Missouri alumnus, will be the Convention parliamentarian.

Lehigh Initiates Earlier L ehigh undergraduates may now be initiated into University fraternities during the second semester of their freshman year. Upon the recommendation of the Committee on Student Life, the University faculty has rescinded the regulation which required a student to have reached sophomore standing before being initiated into a fraternity. The action was prompted by changes in rushing regulations which now permit early fall contacting of freshmen by upperclassmen, and because the length of the pledge period is the prerogative of the fraternity involved. Under current rushing regulations, a student must still be a second-semester freshman before being pledged by a fraternity, but the subsequent initiation may now be held at the discretion of the fraternity.

Proper Communication Can Resolve College Problems President John A. Logan, J1'. ot Hollins College at Hollins College, Virginia, speaking at the convocation opening the college's 127th session: '.' . There is no conceivable issue of college policy whIch cannot be resolved by constitutional process and community deliberation and debate, provided the channels of communication are open and the will to use them exists on both sides. There are certainly campuses where communication is poor and there have been instances where either the administration or student leaders clearly had no wish to debate the issues. Where any party seeks capitulation rather than compromise, no solution is likely to be possible. The interesting thing is the widespread assumption on the part of student leaders that only extreme measures will win them a hearing. I remain convinced that on most campuses thes~ tactics represent conformity to a cun-endy fasluonable mode of behavior, or a bid for publicity, rather than an accurate appraisal of the realities of their local situation. At any rate, things are likely to get worse before they get better, and we can expect a new wave of disturbances on campuses this year. For to the extent that an innate sense of powerlessness lies behin~l the choice of radical tactics, the widespread feelmgs of frustration and disillusionment with demo~ratic processes fostered by the seeming unresponsIVeness to popular wishes exhibited by both major parties at Miami and Chicago this summer is bound to multiply feelings of futility and impotence among the nation's youth. College administrations can expect to serve as lightning rods for the thwarted. idealism and ruined hopes of ... many students ... To some extent college has always been one of the key places where the older generation passed on to the young the accumulated knowledge and experience of mankind, and the conventional wisdom of contemporary society. Changes have clearly occurred, however, which make the institutional framework for this necessary process less comfortable for the younger generation than formerly .... Students nowadays come to college exceptionally well-prepared academically, relatively ma'ture, independent, and motivated, and with a proprietary feeling toward the institution. They have earned their right to be there on their own merits, and they have high expectations as to what college will provide. If they are disappointed, they are not reticent about saying so .... I think no one would argue the fact that many colleges and universities have been slow in adjusting to these altered circumstances and novel expectations. There have been bloody and disruptive confrontations where there might have easily been a welcome transition to a form of cooperative govDELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

ernance. By and large, though it does not always appear so to the parties involved, students have not generally been seeking power as such, but a sense of responsible participation in decisions which affect them.

Wife of a Penn State Alulnnus Writes the Chapter: My dear Young Men of DU: That word "MY" above indicates to me at least, that I'd be happy to claim any or all of you as mine!! Y'see-I attended house parties with my sweetheart of over fifty years when the Phi Tau's were hoping to become DU's. However, from the time we entered the DU house last Saturday morning, to be greeted cordially by one of you, until we departed about II p.m. I, personally, was given the Royal Treatment by so very many of you that I just must write to tell you how very much I appreciated your hospitality, your extreme courtesy, and the kindly attention extended me. You all must have wonderful mothers and possibly you might be willing to pass this thought along to tell them so. Thank you again for the many talks we had, the girl friends you brought around (they're sweet girls) and, as Billy Graham says: "May the Lord Bless you, each one, real good"" Just another mother, THEDA T.

CHAPTER NEVVS REVIEVV Amhent Spring' has finally found its way to 46 Boltwood Avenue and with the change of seasons has come a change in the leadership of the Amherst chapter. The election of new officers has assured the house of sober and capable leadership for at least another year. Steve 'Vard was elected president to replace departing senior, Jay Sendzik; Ed Po tanka let the office of vice president seek him, Tom Donovan was elected treasurer; and Mike DeForge was the popular choice for secretary as well as a plethora of other less important offices. Socially, the semester was highlighted by Prom "Veekend as well as several successful theme parties, but perhaps the biggest success came unexpectedly. The house was graced one Saturday evening by the presence of television and cinema personalities Lloyd Bridges and Shirley Jones who were on location in Amherst filming scenes for a picture earmarked for broadcast on television next Christmas. Several of the brothers, who will make their debut on the silver screen as extras in the picture entitled "Silent Night, Holy Night," apparently met the two stars while filming and proceeded to woo them away from the less-engaging personalities from Hollywood. This spring' Lord Jeff athletic teams are once again well represen ted by DU's. Tom Kelly (who has been awarded the Hitchcock Fellowship) captained the Sabrina baseball team which included an all-DU infield of Jay Sendzik, Bill Canol!, Bany Roderick, and Richie Bedard as well as pitchers, Jim Bottiggi and Ed Potanka. Bill Bacon and Tom Donovan have been instrumental in the success of the Little Three champion lacrosse team, and Glen Lewy played on the Little Three champion tennis team. Pete Levine and Bill Carter were key performers on the Sabrina track team which completed its second successive undefeated season, and the crew team led by Captain Al Kovacs included Steve Ward,

130

W, A. Petit, and Marshall Moriarty. Mark Dickinson, president of the Amherst Rugby Club, headed a contingent of "leatherballers" which included Russ Garland, Bob Sproul, Pete Evans, Mark Zenick, Dick Thistlethwaite, and Mike DeForge. In addition Dave Cichon is scheduled to report to the St. Louis Cardinals after exams, and pledge Jack Hamilton will report to the Red Sox farm club in Jamestown, New York . An annual ritual of the spring' semester is Rushing 'Weekend and this spring the ritual rites proved immensely successful for our chapter. The efforts of the brothers, partiClIlarly Steve Ward, Bill Bacon, and Phil Hart, garnered the largest (26) and by most standards the best p ledge class on campus. The predominantly athletically-oriented class includes: Dick Benson, George Cummings, Chris Dunn, Doug Fitts, Chip Gordon, John Gordon, Bob Griffiths, Tom Griffiths, Jack Hamilton, Bill Hauger, Mark Hoffman, George Kloepfer, Tom Lipscomb, Mark Milliotis, John Montgomery, Tim Murphy, Doug Peddicord, Ron Pergola, Paul Potanka, Ken Ramsey, Linc Schoff, Phil Shapiro, Tom Small, Lou Sorgi, Bob Stisser, and Charlie 'Wilson . According to Amherst College sage (emeritus), William O. Casey, the continued success of our chapter is assured. ED POTANKA

DU's at Auburn are ending a year which has seen growth in nearly every chapter endeavor. Much of this progress is the result of excellent leadership fr01l1 chapter officers Eugene Smith, president; John Hill, vice president; Dayid Funchess, secretary; Bill Hanchey, treasurer; Steve Swicegood, chapter relations; and Frank Stone, pledge educator. Two of the most gratifying strides we have made have been in scholarship and the pledge program . Fall quarter, Delta Upsilon was one of ten of the twenty-six fraternities at Auburn to improve rather than de-

cline in scholarship. Pledge grades improved overall more than the brothers', which we think is in the large measure the result of dedicated leadership from former pledge educator Howard Hively and Brother Stone. Both have been instrumental in reorganizing the pledge program to a progressive one, eliminating many old and useless "traditions," to the ultimate benefit of pledge and brother alike. DU's at Auburn ha've been extremely fortunate in receiving the parent and alumni support essential to complete chapter growth. Our Mothers' Club has been extremely active during the past year, completing several projects helpful to the house . A debt of gratitude is owed to Sue Thompson, outg'oing president of the Mothel's' Club, and we all are sure that the newly-elected president, Mrs. E. P . Garrett, Jr., will continue the fine work of the Mothers' Club. Alumni interest is also on the upswing. The Alabama Delta Upsilon Corporation has held two meetings this year and is makinO" organizational plans to gain the interest and participation of more area alumni. vVe are now having' reg'ular yisits from ou r two new cou nselors elected this spring', John T. Henderson, '62, and Robert Redd, '67. All alumni should begin making plans to attend the fall corporation meeting' which will be held on the day of the Homecoming football game. This will be a very important meeting, as the corpOl'ation will be electing a new board of directors, making it an excellent opportunity for alumni to participate in a corporation program. One of the most important considerations in the growth of any fraternity is rush. Delta Upsilon at Auburn is concentrating on rush and all alumni are urged to send in I'ecommendations of any men who are good prospects for DU's. Recommendations should be sent to summer rush chairman, James Abbott at 534 N. Ross in Auburn, Alabama. Individuallv, brothers have been demonstrating their talen ts in several

areas of campus activities. Neal Sims and Dan Burt, both journalism majors, have been contributing articles to the Aubwm Plainsman and Brother Sims is also writing for the city newspaper, The Aubun~ Bulletin. In varsity sports, Vince Bowlin is looking forward to another g'ood year at defensive tackle on the football squad, where he started last year. Socially, Delta Upsilon has widened its interests. In addition to our traditional 'Winter Formal and Florida house party, we now have a Little Sisters' Club. Its charter members were pledged this spring, with our sweetheart, Sandi Bowman, acting as first president. This spring' also marked the first l"lmning' of the annual Delta Upsilon Car Rally. This year only chapter members participated, in cooperation with The Auburn Sports Car Club, but in the future we hope to expand this event to all-campus participation. The Auburn chapter is interested in hearing from any alumni in our area. So, if you have news about YOUl'self or questions about old friends, please write the house in care of the chapter relations secretary.

"Delta Upsilon in everything and every DU in something" set the atmosphere for the Bradley chapter during the second semester as we set policy geared toward "improvement through unity." Our concept of "unity" touched four basic areas: campus unity; alumni-undergraduate unity; international-chapter unity; intrachapter unity. DU at Bradley has always taken the responsibility of campus unity seriously. vYe have, through campus elections, tried to take an active step toward this objective. This semester as last, DU was the center of campus politics, heading the United Progress Party under the supervision of Fred Roberts. This semester we were fortunate in having' Keith Knapp, Steve 'Vittert, and Bob Edgerton elected to the offices of senior class president, DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY'

BRADLEY. Keith KnaN), senior class jJl"esident. junior class vice president, and junior class treasurer respectively. Our alumni-undergraduate unity has continued to improve over the course of the second semester under the guidance of Alumni Chairman Sonny Minneci. Continuity of alumni program was sought tlnough the services _of an alumni agency . As a result we have sent our second alumni newsletter and have had a very significant and favorable response from our alumni. Next year's Homecoming' is being planned under the coordination of Chairman Mike (Morgan) West. The "unpledge" policy set forth by the International was made a longterm goal of the Bradley chapter. DU was the first to initiate a "mature" pledge program at Bradley, in 1966, and since then we have come a long' way. "Ye are now striving toward the unpledg'e program, but we realize that the chang'e must be gradual, and hopefully can expect to see it in the near future. This is in line with our goal of a unity of policy between our chapter and the International. Last bu t certainly not least, is our goal of intrachapter unity. This, of course, is no new goal, but with our chapter gTowing from twelve men three years ago to eighty-five men today, the goal of unity has taken on new dimensions. Ray Stewart, the newly elected chapter president, has realized the importance of house unit)', and has set policy toward that goal. An intricate network of committees was set up involving every member in some way directly with the workings behind a successful chapter. These committees are headed by chairmen who meet periodically to discuss new ideas and problems which arise during the course of the semester. This system of committees, along' with improved intrachapter

communications among' brothers living' in the house, in the dormitories, and in apartments, and regular all house meetings, involving' everyone from pledg'es to seniors, have in just a short time shown signs of improving intrachapter unity. Dr. Elmo Roach of the History Department has accepted our offer of [acuity advisor. He will join Dr. Gary Fethke of the Economics Department as co-advisor. This is the first time that the Bradley chapter has ever been fortunate enough to have more tban one faculty advisor. "Ve held elections for chapter officers in February. As a result of these elections Ray Stewart is the new chapter president; John Schuenemann is vice president; Chuck Schawabe is treasurer; Bob Edgerton is recording secreatary; and Tony Scrementi, chapter relations secretary. '''' e had a vel')' successful spring rush, pledging twelve new men. These pledges, along with the eleven men we initiated will fill the gap left by some sixteen seniors who expect to graduate in May. ' ,Vith the change in the IFC rush program, summer rush will be important to our chapter this year. Lee 'Vallace, head of this operation, has organized a network of regional chairmen to assist in this endeavor. Continuing its obligation to Bradley and the community, the Bradley chapter has been recognized as one of the four finalists in the President's Trophy Award offered each year by the president of Bradley University to the organization which contributes most to campus and community improvement. In sports, the DU basketball team finished with a .500 season, 7-7 on the year. The volleyball team likewise finished at .500 with a 3-3 rec-

The crowning took place at the FroshSoph Dance which was co-ordinated by the vice president of the sophomore class, Steve vVittert. TONY SCREMENT

British Columbia Amidst a stagnant atmosphere preval ent in most UEC fraternities, DU enjoyed tremendous growth in both membership and reputation. vVe were awarded the most-impl'oved chapter award at our Provincial Conference, were noted the second most popular fraternity on our campus, and two brothers, John Macgowan and Neill Brown, were elected president and vice president of IFC. In our spring rush, usually a very casual affair producing few new members, DU pledged twelve men: Dean Butler, Bill Day, Bill Leighton, Cliff Moen, Doug Stewart, Gary Casilio, Norm Douad, John Morris, Bob McKerricher, Tom Kershaw, Earl Oddstead, and Mike Stephens. Geoff Thomas is to be congratulated for this excellent result and will serve again as rush chairman this fall. Socially, the spring was full of many varied events. Mardi Gras, a Toga party, The Crock Party, The Formal and a post-exam party, five exchang'es, two teach-ins, and our chapter's first pledge retreat were just a few of the highlights, many of which were ably organized by our new co-social chairmen, Dave Reed and Bob Seeley. Our elections produced what should be a strong' executive, providing inspiration, guidance, and communications in the coming year. Glenn Angus was elected president; Brian Stone and Robbie Jones , vice presidents; Ron Royston, treasurer; and Rich Wilburn, secretary. Doug Dent will serve his second year as house manager. If they perform to their capacity, DU at UBC will be the number one fraternity on campus. BRIAN STONE

Bucknell The Demosthenean chapter of Delta Upsilon at Bucknell brought in a strong' pledge class last semester and all hopes are high for another successful rush program in the [all

headed by our rush chairmen, Doug Behm and Chris Green . The pledge class of seventeen freshmen elected as its president, Lloyd Jones, who is also a member of the freshman lacrosse team. Once again the Demies al'e making their presence felt in all areas of campus life. Besides the twelve brothers and pledges who made the Dean's List, Steve Huston, Ed 'Woehling, and Mark Dembert sat on the Men's Judicial Board. Mark was also selected a counselor for next year and will join Bill Fl'isch, Mike Huffman, Eric Reitz, and Ty iValthers, bringing the total of DU counselors to five. A quick glance elsewhere reveals Demies on the staff of the school paper, L'Agenda, in Cap and Dagger (acting club), and even on the staff of WVBU , the campus radio station. Our disc jockeys include Rick Gordon, the station manager, and vVillie Jenkins, who is in charge of the sports department. Not to be forgotten also are Ed Bondi (biology honorary), Rick Gordon (national journalism honorary), and Rick Rohrs, who is the 'vice presiden t of the Student Faculty Congress. The Demosthenean chapter is also very proud to lay claim to many outstanding athletes, varsity and freshman, here at Bucknell. Greg' Olson , Bill Cathcart, Ty Walthers, and Mike Huffman led the Bucknell swimming team to victory in the Middle Atlantic Conference championships while three of our pledges, Tom Hawkins, Scott Williams, and Gene Bitchko were members of the frash wrestling team. On the spring scene, Steve Huston is our representative on the golf links, while Phil Lawes is busy raising a racket on the tennis courts wi th the varsity team. Bob Porta and Mike Marinchak, a freshman, are currently playing baseball this spring, while Steve Turner, our present pledge master, and Rich Francel display their talents on the Bucknell track team. The Detnies on this year 's excellent lacrosse team (6-1) are Doug Behm, Kevin McCaughry, Willie Jenkins, Cmt Torell, Rob i 'Vorthen, Roger Waltemyer, Art Kurz , and Jim McKee who is the cocaptain and one of the high scorers on the team. Dietrich Gruen and Lloyd Jones play freshman lacrosse for the school. This past winter we presented our fifty-fourth annual Demie Play. Attended by more than 800 students, this year's production, Pu're as the Driven Snow, was a big hit, thanks largely to our director, Doug' Belun. The outstanding actor award was presented to Scoby Beer for his role as Constant Heat, the heroine of the play. The other "actors" were Doug Behm, Jeff Brittin, Dietrich Gruen, Lloyd Ryysylainen, Hank Scott, Rick Rohrs, and Willie Jenkins. This past semester the Demosthenean chapter of Delta Upsilon, in the line of campus service, presented

a Film Festival conslstll1g of three French films and although we did not "rake in" the money we plan to present another festival in the fall which will draw somewhat bigger crowds. Our intramural team, which got off to a blazing start last fall , has faltered slightly but thanks to the leadership of our athletic chairman, Howie vVorstall, we are firmly entrenched in third place in the overall standings. Graduation is drawing near and we are all going to miss our graduating seniors but we shall also regret tbe loss of our two identical sweethearts, Mary and Martha Link. They are the daughters of Joseph A . Link, '40. New officers were recen tl y elected for the coming semester and they are: Bill Cathcart, president; Chris Green, vice president; Mark Dembert, secretary; Matt Ridgway, chapter relations secretary; and Mike Packard, trcasurer.

CaTnegie iVith new officers, new initiates and new ideas, Carnegie chapter is looking' ahead to 1969-70 with great enthusiasm. Our newly electcd officers are: Bill Berger, president; Jay Brenner, vice president; Mike Bickerton, secretary; Ed Schneider, treasurer; Ed Berbari, pledge master; Steve vValsh , rush chairman; Kraig Marton, house manager; Norm Simons, public relations; Frank Korbett, social chairman; Phil Billings, alumni relations; and Rod Gunther, steward. We initiated eight members this spring, and five more pledges are slated to g'o active this fall. Beginnings have been made toward great improvements in our chapter. The house scholastic average went up two tenths of a point as we passed four houses in scholarship. At C-MU's annual Spring Carnival Buggy Races, our buggy placed second in its heat, and our " Carnegie Mission Unthinkable" booth lit up the midway. In athletics, Jim Hodge starred for the varsity track team, Frank Korbett and Joe Straub took first in their weight classes in intramural wrestling, and fine showings by the bridge, bowling, and "jag" basketball teams highlighted the intramural year. Our Greek Sing team, thoug'h finishing fifth of twelve, won the raves of the audience and the other teams. Our chapter's most important project, along with rush, is the reestablishment of ties with our alumni. An introductory newsletter has been mailed already, with more to follow this fall. Our interest in pu blic service projects remains high. The recent initiates did volunteer work for the YMCA, and plans are in progress for more projects this fall, as Delta Upsilon continues to exem-

Chicago This spring the Chicago chapter of Delta Upsilon put the finishing touches on the massive program of repair undertaken by the house manager, Jim Nicewander. No wall or ceiling remains untouched and the house now glistens anew. In addition to repairs on the house, the chapter also bought a new set of dining room chairs to replace the old ones, which were in sad shape. Needless to say, the l'epairs were costly; funds have become so scarce that the chapter has been forced to cancel this year's Rose Dance, a formal dance which has been an annual event for the last sixty· five years. The chapter hopes to make up for this by holdi ng one of the biggest and most successful IF Sings in recent years . On April 29, the chapter initiated fou r new men; IFC as well as several of the campus fraternities expressed disappointment at the poorest rush in Chicago'S history . Be that as it may, we secured four able DU's in the persons of Peter Olsen, David Tan, Joseph Sell, and Laurence Dworet. MIIm COOK

Clarkson Another year passes and we at the Clarkson chapter of Delta Upsilon feel it has been a very successful year. As a result of an intensive rush program set up by Kin Rawe, we acquired a large and independent pledge class. The new pledges are: Gorden Allen , Gary Arbach, Eric Broadbent, Paul Broadbent, Terry Brown, John Charno, David Decker, Jose Fernandez, Cary Flack, Peter Ganley, Phillip Goettel, Thomas Herema, Robert Jorgensen, Ronald Kemp, Dennis Kieta, Todd Lingoski, Thomas Madden, Richard Nayglon, Randy Ott, Larry Pakenas, Richard Raga, Kenneth Shea, Richard Smith, James Toth, Phillip Vallari, Michael Walter, Howard Wolf, Martin Wortendyke, and John Yacono. ''''ith the successful efforts of our pledge marshal, Dave Wilkins, this large pledge class has shown individuality and unity. Besides the things I have just mentioned, they have shown scholastic ability by obtaining an overall 2.70 accum . As of April 27, Moving· Up Day at Clarkson, two brothers, Terry Day, a senior, and Dave Brady, a junior, brought honors to our house by being inducted into Phalanx. The brothers are very active in intercollegiate sports this spring'. Terry Day and Eric Bottrile are playing varsity baseball; Terry Brown and Phil Goettil are playing freshman baseball; Bob Bicknell, golf; and Art Scottow, lacrosse. For a DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY •

point of interest, nine of our pledges will be playing varsity basketball next fall. Just recently Brother Peter Toeg set up a newsletter containing events and happenings within the house to be sent to all our alumni. vVe are very hopeful that this letter will arouse the interest of our alumni and bring them closer to the house. The weekend of May 17 is the scheduled date for our annual spring weekend . On Friday evening we are planning a party at the house. SatUl'day, we are going to the Golden Arrow Motel in Lake Placid, where we will have a buffet dinner, indoor swimming, and dance to the music of the Rebels. DONALD ,"'. EMMONS

Colorado This last semester has been an impOl·tant one for the Colorado chapter of Delta Upsilon. Since the election of new officers, we have made significant progress in rush, finance, and social activities. Bill Wynne, a junior in mechanical engineering, was elected president, and John Ross, also a junior in engineering, was elected financial manager. Our newly elected secretary is John Fraser, who is a sophomore in business administration. John Kinkade, fanner chapter preSident, and Roger Bohart, past financial manager, have been elected as chapter counselors. Don Marturano, the past studentbody president, has recently been awarded a Rotary Scholarship to study economics at one of five European schools. He has been acclaimed as being the best student leader that the University of Colorado has seen in years . Tom Hausman, former student-body senator-at-Iarge, has been

elected president, and Bill Wynne and Kirk vVells have been tapped into Omicron Delta Kappa, the national junior·senior men's leadership honorary. John J. Ross has been initiated into Sigma Tau, the engineering honorary. After a phantasmagorical Hell's Ang'els party, which was held in an abandoned mine, the brothers are looking forward to the Tahitian Terror, to be held in a jungle with a roasted pig for dinner. Fordie McClave, a DU Darling, is running for the title of "Miss Perfect Body," a contest sponsored by the Associated Engineering Students. The house donated "fordie" dollars to support Fordie. As far as rush is concerned, we have recently pledged ten outstanding men whom we know will be leadexs on this campus. It's been a good year for the Colorado chapter, and we are looking forward to next year.

COTne1l Within a very few days the 1968-69 academic term at Cornell University, and D elta Upsilon will come to a close. In retrospect, it was both a memorable and momentous year. The Big Red's rather disappointing gridiron season did not at all reflect the fine efforts turned in by the DU's who played, in particular, Captain Doug Kleiber. As a high school all-stater, Doug came to Cornell with a reputation to live up to, and came through with flying colors (Sapphire Blue and Old Gold). In his four years at the middle linebacker spot Doug earned All-Ivy, All-East second team, and All-Amel'ican honorable mention. He now moves up to the big time this summer when the Cleveland Browns go to training camp. Among our other notables in sports were: Tom NlacLeod, Cornell's version of Bob Gibson, who helped the team to a second place finish among the Ivies; and Brooks Scholl, who in the past two years has done a fine job for Cornell's lacrosse team. Rushing co-chairmen Tim Battaglia and Bob Enichen were outstanding in the "fast talker" department. The end product of their effort was twenty-five pledges, who, under the leadership of pledge master Santo Laql1atra, became brothers on April 19, 1969. They are: Thomas H. Boettcher, Randy M. Shayler, Gerard M. Miknis, John C. Moresko, John J. Dougherty, John P. Cushing', Jr., John S. Peterson, Thomas J. Rakowski, James M. Parolie, Douglas A. Herron, Tim P. Rowlands, Roderick J. Clemente, James T. O'Hargan, Daniel W. Miller, Robert B. Kugler, Scott C. Schnuck, Thomas K. Guba, Thomas V. Edry, Michael P . Murphy, Craig E. Lambert, R . Owen Snyder, Craig W. Scott, Joseph Daino, Robert Mauro, and John G. Yaros. Speaking as one of the new

133


ll11tJates, we hope to maintain the uncompromising excellence of the house and their winning tradition (viz. pledge-brother hockey and soft· ball g·ames). The recent violent disruptions on the Cornell campus received much national publicity, bu t too little of it truthfully and accurately represent· ed the position of the men of Delta Upsilon. To quote a section of a recent letter by our president Thomas D. MacLeod, "vVe must stand, un· like anyone else at this University, on the same principles as before the i ncident. Not once did we compro· mise our position or our pl'inciples, nor do we intend to, whether it be in a peaceful atmosphere or one of armed violence. '>\Te are in no way sorry for the steps we took to try to restore an educational atmosphere to Cornell. ' ·Ve are saddened, however, by the lack of action on the part of the Cornell administration and its capitu lation to threats of violence" (May 26, 1968) . JOI-IN G . YAROS

The year started with freshman week in which we took a very successful role in welcoming the incom· ing freshmen. With Kappa Beta Chi sorority and the Student Board of Governors, we sponsored Casino Night. The night proved to be one of the highlights of the year, and we are now trying to make this an annual affair, providing us a chance to be introduced with the new students. Our float in Homecoming' placed third . Brothers worked about five weeks preparing for the parade. Float building chairmen Jim Leahy and Ed Christiansen did an excellent job in directing' and organizing. Concluding fall activities, we span · sored a fashion show for the coeds at Creighton in conjunction with a local department store. Invitations were sen t to all Creigh ton coeds and coeds also modeled the clothes. Brothers of our fraternity ushered the event. In December elections were held , electing Roy Lane, president; Tom Berg, vice president; lvfike Peters, secretary; and '>\Tayne Buckmiller, treasurer. Installation was held during the week of classes in January in preparation for rush and the new se· mester. Intramurals of the fall and winter concluded with our football team placing third in the fraternity league of nine with a record of four wins and four losses. The basketball team finished second in the fraternity league of twelve with a record of ten wins and two losses. Fl'ank i\·I ancuso made the all-intramural team. '>\Te began second semester with rush . Creighton is on a delayed rush and the first week in February was

134

our first opportunity. We took thirty pledges on our first pledge program, headed by pledge master Frank Dinovo and rush chairman John Lenihan. Spring pledging and social activities were mostly in preparation of installation on April 12, 1969. In academics , our chapter slipped from its first-place scholastic standing' by a few hundredths of a point, but we still maintain an average well above the all-men's average of the school. Marty Glick was recognized for his superior academic achievements at the annual honors banquet. The highlight for the year was, naturally, our installation on April 12. During the two-day event, fifty undergraduates and thirteen gradu'ate and faculty members were initia ted as charter members of the Creighton chapter. The day of events Saturday included the installation, Rag raising, open house reception , banquet, and concluded with our first annual formal dance. Miss Jill Clay became our first Chapter Sweethean. Following our formal dance, an "informal" party lasted until the early hours of the next morning'. Brothers of Province X chapters joined with us in our celebration . Last week elections were held for the fall semester. Tom Dunbar was elected president, Larry Schroer as vice president, Jim '>\Tahl as secretary, Mike Anderson as chapter relations secretary, and John Pester as treasurer. Installation of the new officers was held last Sunday. Our spring activities will close with a Red Cross blood drive that we are sponsoring, and our annual luau. MIKE ANDERSON

Davis This past year has been a most hectic one for the Davis chapter of Delta Upsilon. Through three quarters we have concerned ourselves with the problem of acquiring a new house for next year. The house that we presently inhabit has been leased to us for the past three yeal's and has become a financial burden. Finding another house has been our difficulty. Davis is a small community and most structures are not larg'e enough to occupy our total brethren. Our field secretary, Mike Archbold, presented us with a solution. His proposal was to buy a small house which would serve as the chapter house and in which only officers and pledges would live. 'Ve have found such a house but we will not be able to move in for another year since it has been leased through the 1969-70 school year. Now on to other events. ' ·Vinter quarter ended with the house coming out ahove the overall campus men's GPA with a 2.87 which placed us fourth in fraternities au t of thirteen on cam pus. This was quite a boost from our cellar position of fall qualter. Praise goes to Joe Fornasero and Russ Scharlin

who lifted us high with respective grade points of 4.0 and 3.8. The spring quarter started off well with the initiation of four pledges. They are: Chee Gong, Steve Krautz, Tom Sessa, and Bob Thomas. vVe also welcome into our house for spring quarter three pledges in Jon Fennel, Russ Griswald, and Jeff Wagonet. April 19 was the day for Davis' annual picnic. 'Ve celebrated it hy inviting all friends, relatives, and alumni to an open house and a magnificent feast prepared gy our chief cook and bottlewasher, Jimmy Johnson. 'Ve are very active when it comes to intramurals. ' ·Ve have organized three softball teams (one of them is cooed) and two volleyball squads. Our cooed softball team and one of our volleyball teams are vying for first place in their divisions. Our regrets go to Brother Robert Tarone, graduate in math with Phi Beta Kappa honors, who will be inducted into the army at the end of the summer quarter. Hopefully, b y then, he will have attained his master's degree. BOB THOMAS

Denison The initiation of twenty-eight men into the undergraduate chapter in late February added impetus to the momentum of Delta Upsilon at Denison , and on that same day, Scott Trumbull and Bob Browning began their respective duties as president and vice president of our chapter. Now, with the year almost at an end, we would like to congratulate our seniors, and offer a special salute to past president Bob Brinker for an excellent job. Brinker has chosen Navy OCS over law studies at the University of Michigan, and we wish him much success. Also we congratulate 'Voodrow '~Tilson Fellow Jay McNeill, Phi Betas McNeill and Mike Zinsser, and a host of others. Alumni may read of other seniors' successes and plans in the up-coming newsletter. Again this year DU's have distinguished themselves in many phases of Denison life. Pete Reilly was elected student body president; Trum bull, IFC president; Marty Erbaugh , Den ison Christian Association president and head resident in the freshman dorms; Hy Norton, attorney for men's judicial council and chairman for the Denison Lecture Sel'ies; Bob Browning, Tom Stepp, Mike Markward, Jay Crouse, and Jim Emch , student advisors for freshman men. All of these men will be in their respective positions for most of next year. Athletically, we are unequalled. The wrestling season culminated in another conference championship for the Denison team, and Tom Stepp landed his third consecutive secondplace finish in his division . Stepp and Mike Schrage, who sat out this season with injuries sustained in

soccer, will co-captain next year's team. Captain Jeff Johasky, along with Dave Keebler, Bob Sarvis, and Jeft Rankin, led the goH team to a second-place conference finish . Trevor Young· and Tom Hartzell are playing outfield for the baseball team; Clift Eastman, pole vaulter, and Kit Fox, standout hurdler, are adding strength to Denison 's track team. Fox recently broke the school intermedia te (440-yan!) hurdle record. Bob Burnham, Hy Norton , and Danny DeCrescenzo, among others, are seeing considerable action on the U niversity's much lauded lacrosse team, abou t which an article was written in the May 5 issue of SjJOrts Ilil/strated. Three .iuniors were recently selected for the 1969 edition o[ Outstanding College Athletes. TJlese men include Jeff Johasky for golf and football, Bob Burnham for soccer and lacrosse, and :Mike Schrage for soccer and wrestling. Socially we have enjoyed an extremely active semester with pool parties, wine parties, a whiskey sour breakfast, Tiki trips, spring weekend, and of course, our own Orchid Formal, at which Pat Richardson , pinmate of Jeff Ritter, reigned as queen. j\{any men have taken time away from busy schedules to entertain children from the county chilclren's home and to work with handicapped people. All of these men , scholars, a thletes, party-gael's, have contributed to a great year for Delta Upsilon at Denison. JAMES EMcH

DePauw Dedication of our new addition to the chapter house , at the end oE May, marks the end of a ten-year planning, budgeting, and saving period, the goal of which was to provide above-adequate housing for a con tinually growing chapter. The mem-

bers living here now are fortunate that there were members living here ten years ago who were foresighted enough to convince the House CorpOl·ation to agree to an addition. The addition replaces the temporary accommodations that the Annex , across the street, affo.r ded , and, as of February 18 the Annex was officially closed . Growing in a more traditional fashion, the chapter initiated seventeen freshmen into the Fraternity on :M arch 8, 1969. Held in the chapter house, the ceremony reached its highpoint as Senior Dave Bohmer delivered the charg·e. Unity through cooperative communication was the central idea brought out in the speech, geared to be as pertinent to the realistic fraternity situation as possible. Dave also stressed the fact that growth and development, necessary for successful continuation of the Fraternity, must be effected through rational , yet progressive, changes in the system. Those men initiated include : Bill Cary, Mike Dyer, Reini Friebertshauser, Mike Hamilton, Jim Kasper, Dave Mann, Dean Maragos, Chris May, Jeff McDonald, Thad Mikols, Harry Page, 10hn Pearce, Eric Pound , Bill Sadler, Ron Sikorski, Kent Ulery, and Steve Winkler. Our housemother, Mrs. Hopkins, has decided not to return next fall to continue her chaperoning duties. After thirteen years of attempting to cope with fifty-five exuberant males , Mrs. Hopkins plans to "take it easy" next year, travelling· and vacationing in Michigan and Illinois. vVe have already contracted a new housemother, Mrs. Bayse, currently the Phi Delt housemother at the University of Missouri. Her reputation as a housemother is su bstan tiated by the fact that she is president of the Housemothers' Association at Missouri. Mrs. Ba yse will assume her

Florida The Florida chapter finished in the top five of twenty-six fraternities in scholarship during the winter quarter. The chapter attained an overall 2.5 averag·e and received a large scholarship banner for the trophy case. ,~re will hold the second annual DU Debates in conjunction with Greek Week, ]\,[ay 21-23. Gregory Mathews is chairman and Garry Glickman is co-chairman. The topic for the Debates is Resolved: That the United States Should Have an Antiballistic Missile System. Last year Alpha Epsilon Pi won the trophy. The Florida Interfraternity Coun cil sponsored Beautification Week April 1-6. Every fraternity and sorority cooperated in a clean-up campaign which had as its intention the removal of trash and garbage from the ghetto areas of Gainesville. The intensive effort resulted in citywide admiration for the Greeks on campus. ,~re received the second runnerup trophy for our over-all eftorts during Beautification ,Veek. vVe established another Florida first during the week of May 3-10. Originally the Rascals, a nationally known rock bank, were scheduled to play to raise money for a new coliseum. Rains forced cancellation of the show and the Student Coliseum Action Team (SCAT) was forced to make refunds to all those purchasing tickets. I,Ve donated our share of the refunds, amounting to $200, to the SCAT fund. To date, Delta Upsilon is the only fraternity on campus to do so. The spring quarter initiation banquet was held at the Golden Hills Country Club, in Ocala on April 19. Fourteen new brothers were initiated from the winter's pledge class. These fourteen men, good and true, are Andrew Alexander, Eugene Hastey, Terrance Kersey, Thomas Kroll, Robert Leddy, Beau Marchegiani, Ke nneth Meyers, Ronald Norman, ,Villi am O 'Byme, George Smith, Charles Traina, and Jorge Valdes. Retiring· faculty advisor, Major Richard H. Ross, Michigan State '60, was also honored at the banquet. He has served as faculty advisor for two

Several brothers in the house have achieved high honors or attained positions of importance around campus during the past two quarters. Garry Glickman was elected to the Student Senate for the 1969-1970 school year. Michael Malone was elected IFC Seminar chairman for Greek W'eek this year. Gregory Mathews was initiated into Florida Blue Key. Gregory was recognized for h is efforts as Florida's top debater and as one of the finest in the nation. He again attended the National Debates and made a fine showing for the University of Florida. ,,,7i11iam O'Byrne, who has been active on the University's Army rifle team, has been elected secretary of the team for the 1969-70 school year. Thomas Kennedy has been named to serve as the chief photographer for the University of Florida's newspaper, The ALligator, which is currently the nation's number-one daily college newspaper. Kennedy is also going to be one of the chief photographers for The Seminole, Florida's yearbook. Rohert Ivey, Beau Marchegiani, and W'i1liam O'Byrne were tapped into Phi Eta Sigma, the freshman honorary society, for their outstanding academic achievements. Little Sister Vana Christian was one of ten semifinalists in the Miss University of Florida con test. Melvin Sharpe, FloTida. '65, was J'ecognized for his efforts as administrative assistant to President Stephen C. O'Connell, by the Interfraternity Council in their magazine, The GatoT Gmek. Sharpe was honored for his fine work as an administrator and for the leadership

136

which he has provided fraternity men on this campus. We will be conducting rush this summer. In conjunction with summer rush, there will be introductory rush socials in Orlando and Pensacola. All alumni are invited to attend these socials. Alumni are also urged to send any recommendations to the house during the summer. Further information on the socials will be sent in a special newsletter to all alumni. The newly elected officers for the 1969-1970 school year are: Michael Malone, president; Garry Glickman, vice president; Mac Hammond, secretary; John Bryan, treasurer; Jeffrey Bayman , chapter relations secretary; William O'Dell, pledge education chairman; and Gregory Mathews, member-at-large.

"Progress and growth" are words that best typify the spring semester at Fresno State. Scholastically, we are very proud of our third place standing among all fraternities on campus. Helping DU attain this is Lyle Grote, who was honored this spring as the fall pledge with the highest grade point average at 3.84. Actively tying the needs of the community to the college campus was the goal behind our assistance to the Big Brothers of America Org'anization. Rather than having another social function, we donated the money which would have been spent to Big Brothers, in the amount of $250. We also helped make the Big Brothers' annual Pancake Breakfast a success by serving customers and selling tickets. Also, in conjunction with Alpha Xi Delta sorority, we presented

disadl'an taged children of the Cecil C. Hinton Community Center with an Easter egg hunt and a day at the Roeding Park in Fresno. Greek '>\leek was a triumph for the DU's at FSC. Richard Machado, as Greek '\leek chairman, and subchairmen Ronald Heiman and Chuck Breitigam, had much to do with the success. Starting the week off right were chapter president Randy Smith and Little Sister Carla Lucide with their first place win in the "GreeKarRally." Not to be outdone were Mike Holpuch and Robert Bender, who came in second place and Terry La Brue and Paul Anderson who finished third. This added up to a clean sweep for Delta Upsilon. Greek 'Week Activities Day was another exciting moment with the DU team defeating all others in the hotly contested tug-of-war. Twelve new FSC coeds were added to the Little Sisters of the Seven Stars this spring. This bdngs the total number to twenty-five hard working and lovely girls. Highlights of the semester were the Easter egg hunt and the Shanghai Breakfast f01' undergraduates and pledges, hosted by the Little Sisters. Janet Johnson, a freshman affiliated with Delta Gamma sorority, was selected to be the Delta Upsilon Sweetheart at the Seven Star Formal held in April. Many brothers and alumni attended, making the evening. Paul Gottleib and his committee worked to make the occasion successful. Blue Key, the national honor fraternity, added Brother Lyle Grote to its ranks. This makes DU the campus organization with the largest percentage of its members in Blue Key. Culminating a semester of hard work and study in the pledge program , fourteen pledges were initiated in a ceremony on May 3. The charge was delivered by Gary Tudor, F1'esno '68, the first president of the Fresno chapter. Under the direction of Jack Ettner, the recently elected president for the coming semester, plans f01" summertime rush are being readied . A waterskiing trip to Shaver Lake in the nearby Sierra Nevada Mountains and other ou tings are scheduled. TERRY

Hamilton Delta Upsilon had a profitable, if not a completely outstanding winter term. vVe pledged an enthusiastic and promising class of eighteen freshmen who will be a real asset to the house. We revamped the Constitution at last, and looked closely into our needs and aspirations. In February, we elected Ting Yi Oei as president, making him the first junior to hold the office.

and what it should mean to them. We wrote and have sent to press our first newsletter in many a year and hope to continue this practice. The winter sports scene saw three DU's, Jerry Pisanelli, Bill Sherman, and Steve Linett, leading the basketball team to its finest season ever (15-3). The swimming team didn't match last year's undefeated squad, as it suffered one lone defeat. Particularly outstanding was diver Paul Crumrine, who lost but once in dual meet competition_ This spring the baseball team has found the talents of Jerry Pitarresi, Jerry Pisanelli, Al D'Accurzio, and Bill Demarest extremely valuable, while the golf team is captained by Dave Waters, and receives strong support from Bill Sherman and Jim Banagan. Our intramural hockey team, captained by Brian Beach, had a good time, but did not do very well. ' ,Ve had trouble recruiting a goalie, but Hawaiian Charlie Reppun did what he could_ The intramural basketball team had a good season bu t failed to make the grade in the semifinals. Plans are proceeding smoothly for our second annual faculty clambake which we hope will be as big a success as last year's. Our Christmas party for the faculty children was one of the highlights of the season for the children and brothers alike, despite the early closing of school because of the Hong Kong flu_ We hope that the alumni brothers will write and tell us about their activities so that the news can appear in our next newsletter.

Illinois The Illinois chapter recently completed a highly successful spring formal rush. Emphasizing the Fraternity's "Unpledge" campaign, especially in conjunction with its own progressive pledge policy, the Jllinois chapter gained eleven outstanding pledges. "Delta UpSilon-the Unpledge" buttons and stickers, supplied by the General Fraternity, proved quite beneficial. With a 3.67 house average, DU jumped from thirty-seven th to twenty-first among the fifty-seven fraternities at Illinois. DU also ranked in the top ten for house gradepoint improvement. A sense of academic commitment among the brothers indicates that DU will continue to improve scholastically_ Having paired the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority for the 1969 Stunt Show, the DU's and the Kappas have enjoyed a happy time together this spring. The work on the show begins this summer and continues during the first month of school in September. The highligh t of the social season, the Sweetheart Formal, was held on May 17 this year. The DU sweetheart was announced at the affair. DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY'

INDIANA. With AljJha Chi Omega, Delta V took fi-rst-jJ/ace honors in IV Sing with a well-staged j)TOdtlction . Although the DU slow-pitch softball team suffered through a winless season, the fast-pitCh team captured its league title, and the co-rec softball team (DU is paired with Phi Mu sorority) advanced to the championShip playoffs.

Indiana The Indiana chapter of Delta U psilon Fraternity is proud to report the results of a progressive and rewarding spring semester. Newly elected officers are: Dave Allard, president; Larry Fagersten, vice president; Craig Roberts, scholat'ship chairman; Dan Kuhn and Cliff Askinasi, rush co-chairmen; and Mike Livingston, treasurer. ''''ith the coming of a new semester, thirteen new initiates were added to the Indiana chapter. The newly inducted brothers are: Bob Manalo, Bob Bouvy, John Fienning, Craig Parker, Larry Yinger, Jeff Sawyer, Jim Hunt, Denny Stalter, Jack Denniston, Jim Hammond, Jerry Estes. Tom Gordon, and Steve Jackson. Jack Denniston was awarded the scholarship pin for having the highest grades during the semester of his pledgeship. Jim Hunt was the pledge of the year. Of the two major all-campus events this year, IU Sing and Little 500, the DU's of Indiana have done an exceptional job of promoting the name of Delta Upsilon Fraternity. On February 28, 1969, in the IU Auditorium, Delta Upsilon and Alpha Chi Omega took first place honors in IU Sing. They won first in production and also won the overall award for the best performance. "Contrast IU" was the theme of our performance_ The stage became a world in miniature expressing the attitudes, emotions, and prejudices

which trou ble our modern times. The chorus was dressed in different combinations of black and white and was positioned on different levels of height. The dancers were in orange, blue, and green costumes revolving alternately, clockwise then counterclockwise, around the narrator who was standing on a podium in the center of the stage. Multi-colored lights and costumes glistened as the narrator rang off the names in the news-"Trash! Vietnam! Riot! Race!," while in the background, Kyrie Eleison (Lord, Have Mercy) was shadowed over the auditorium by the chorus. The peak of the performance came as "Nigger" was screamed following words of racial prejudice. Silence followed, then softly from the stage came the song "There's a Place for Us" as the choral and dancers slowly walked from the stage with their props. 'With the coming of spring and warm weather, Greek houses and residence halls begin practice for "the greatest college weekend in the U.S.," the Little 500 Bicycle Race. Last year the DU team finished second out of the thirty-three starters in the fastest race of Little 500 history. "Vith the return of three of last year's riders, the DU team, sponsored by Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority, has high hopes for placing first this year. On April 12, the team qualified with the fourth fastest time, placing us in good position for the 1'ace on May 10. Riders are Jim Davis, Bix Branson, Larry Fagersten , Denny Stalter, and Kerry Thompson. In other miscellaneous areas the brothers are firing up our 1932 American La France fire truck for the "Fireman's Fling." Co-captains of the IU track team are Jim Arbuckle and 'Ves Brooker, both Indiana DU's. Our new mascot is a humon路 gous black dog, half Saint Bernard

Iowa State Busy isn 't the word to describe what it's been like at Ames this spring. Between our library dedication, spring initiation, and Veishea, Iowa State DU's have kept their time schedules filled to the brim. Our new Ronald "V. Faust Memorial Library is completed and dedication ceremonies were held on March 23. The library is divided into two sections. The main body consists of two rows of study tables and

chairs which accommodate up to forty students. Reference books (twenty more were recently added) and the memorial plaque make up the north wall, and a lime-green carpet covers the floor wall-to-wall. The other part of the library is a drawing room for architectural students. Five new drawing tables easily met our need for more and better art facilities. 'Vith air-conditioning' and excellent lighting, our new li brary makes a perfect place in which to study. Later in the spring, seventeen men were initiated into Delta Upsilon. They were: Pat Luers, Pete Meehan, Mark Shumate, Bob Johnson, Kirby Hamman, Roger Bolton, Jim Smith, Joe Stanley, Dan Lettington, Jon DOlT, and FJ'ank Hill. These men have displayed a high interest in the Greek system and the University. Brother Evans l'ecently completed his term as Interfraternity l)ledge Council president and has accepted a position on next year 's IFC as pledge education committee chairman. Brother Hamman was elected vice pl'esident of Freshman Educational Government and was l'ecently honored as an outstanding freshman during Greek 'Veek. At the initiation ceremonies, Brother Luers received the pledge scholarship award for maintaining a 3.79 grade point through plcdgeship. Brother Shumate was named Outstanding Pledge. As always for DU, Veishea really began during winter quarter when float-building plans were started. '~'e chose "2001: A Space Odyssey" as our contribution to this year's parade theme, "Great Moments in Entertainment." Along with Kappa Delta sorority, we worked on the float right up until it rolled into line on the Saturday morning of Veishea.

The float consisted of two parts: a black obelisk with apes around it, and a space station. These represented the two main scenes in the movi e . Brothers Bob Cronk, Steve Bryant, and Craig Mattison headed the building of a distinctive and colorful Aoat. Late in April, we joined Delta Sigma Phi fraternity in our Spring Formal, "Moon and the Stars." At the dance, lvlom Peterson swung to the beat of Jimi Hench'ex and even bought a round of drinks. Mary Boatman of Gamma Phi Beta sorority was selected fairest of all the DU pinmates as she was named DU Sweetheart at the dance. DU made a big splash on the intramural scene as we captured the spring' all-fraternity volleyball championship. Led by the vicious spikes of Dave Kampfe, Phil Radloff, and Ken t Cerrone, we demolished Adelante 15-2, 15-5 in the finale. In ad dition, Tim Knight fll1ished rnnnerup in both the billiards and pocket billiards tournaments. On the varsity level , footballers Ted H all and Al Staidl ended their careers under Coach Johnny Majors. Ted was a guard while Al filled the linebacker position on the Cardinal and Gold gTid team. Tom Padgen will keep DU represented on the varsity level, however, as he was a starting end on last fall 's freshman team. Pete ~'Ieehan, also a freshman, played third base on the .TV baseball tean1.

Four brothers were recently tapped into honoraries at lSU. The Knights of St. Patrick Honorary added Craig Foss and Dave Gibbs to its membership roll while Brothers Luers and Meehan were initiated into Phi Eta Sigma freshman honorary.

Johns Hopkins Under the leadership of rush chairmen Leo Jackson and Buddy McLaughlin, DU took another successful pledge class this year resulting in sixteen new brothers to be initiated next fall. Stu Lipton was elected pledge class president, while Mike Erikson and Bob Vogt were chosen as vice presiden t and secretary- treasurer, respectively. Chapter elections were also held recently for the 1969-70 school year. The newly elected officers include: John Casciano, president; Kirk Slenker, vice president; Bob Swanton, treasurer; Jim Case, secretary; and Greg Szoka and Leo Jackson, rush chairmen. Junior president John Casciano, also active in campus politics, is looking f01"ward to the coming year and plans to ini tia te a number of chapter ref01"ms. The Johns Hopkins swimming team made history this year by qualifying six men to participate in the NCAA college division national swimming meet. DU's Vaughan W'eikle and Jim Scott were two of the six Hopkins men to take part in this imp01"tant national event. Diver Rick ' ,Yilson helped the team capture the Middle Atlantic championship title and tog'ether with Jim and Vaughan, the DU men hold ten of the University'S nineteen school records. Also part of DU's contribution to the University's intercollegiate athletic program are goalie John Kelly and defenseman Paul vYeiss who are both returning lettermen to the national championship lacrosse team. Representing the Hopkins chapter in campus politics this year are: senior class president, John Kelly; Student Council representative of the class of '71; Greg Szoka; vice DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

Kansas This semester's activities have been marked by concern through individual performance and house effort. Directed hy Larry Scott as president and Larry Spikes as vice president, the house has turned its efforts toward the University itself. The semester began with a new drive to improve relations with a.lumni and other DU chapters. Rolhe Enoch, as alumni chairman, has stayed in constant contact through regular newsletters. He has also worked hard at re01"ganizing and updating' our existing information. Our annual alumni stag dinner was held at Christmas time and our alumni weekend will begin May 10. A similar effort h as been made to acquaint our chapter with other DU chapters. During the year, we have held parties with both the K-State and Missouri chapters. President Scott greeted our new Creighton chapter. Brothers have also visited the Colorado, Nebraska, and Oklahoma chapters. :rhe . house sl~irit reached a high thIS w111ter dunng basketball intramurals. After a fine showing in football, the house became determined to win the "A" Division Hill championship in basketball. Our team advanced throug'h an undefeated season and tht'ough the play-offs into the finals. The finals were especially exciting since the independent champions which we faced were all on KU's football team, including AllAmericans Bobby Douglass and John Zook. After a rough physical game, we ended up with a 67-50 win and the Hill championship. The house has participated in a number of the activities on campus this year, including Greek "Yeek and Homecoming' activities. The IFC adopted a new policy of choosing the outstanding Greek during this year's Greek 'Veek. We are proud that Joe Goering was the first to receive this honor. It has also been satisfying to see that the IFC has adopted a new Cultural Affairs Committee under the chairmanship of Ken 'Viley. This is a progTam that we had already instituted within the house and which Brother W'iley and Brother Randy Youle helped instigate into the IFC programs for the entire Greek system.

Under the leadership of pledg'e trainers Rogel' Kathol first semester and Randy Youle second semester, alO1~g with the help of scholarship chaIrman Jay :Mason, academic excellence has been strongly impressed on this year's pledge class. At initiation we had two pledges with perfect 3.0 grade ~verages . Because of a larger acadenllC load, Paul Dewey was the honor initiate with Dave Boles only one class hour behind. The Pledp'eof-the-Year award went to the s~c颅 ond sen~ester pledge class president, Lynn PlIler. This year's pledge class has also made an excellent effort in carrying out our rush program as directed by rush chairman Bill Ebert and assistant chairman Tom Futo. Taking over the leadership of the class of 1970 from the current junior class president, Larry Spikes, ,i'ill be Don Farrington. Ted Gardiner, Larry Scott, Ken Wiley, Bill Ebert, and i\'~ark Biddle will be among the n111ety members on the new Student Senate next year. Brother Ebert has been chosen to be one of ten on the Senate Council. He was again chosen as one of three students out of this council of ten to form the University Se.nate.

Julian and Bigley were on the distance medley team that set a new world 's l'ecord of 9:33.0 at the Kansas Relays. First semester ended with our formal Trophy Girl Party. May 2, 3, and 4 is our traditional She DU Party. The first nigh t is a formal, the second night is a Viking Party for which we work throughout the week to decorate the barn, and on Sunday morning we return to the house, where the girls will spend the night, for a brunch. Numerous woodsies and sandbar parties have been held, but the approach of She DU will mark the end of our social activities and the approach of finals. CLAIR ASKLUND

Kansas State Under th e new leadership of Rich Lilly, presid ent, and Dan Grinstead, vice president, the DU's at Kansas State have enjoyed, thus far, a successful semester. Other officers elected for this semester include Gary Sebelius, secretary; Wayne Davis, treasurer; Joe Mathewson, house manager; Clare Hakeman, chapter relations; and Martin Bauer and Mark RulifIson, l'lIsh chairmen. The term got off to a good start with Dan Huffman winning Favorite Man on Campus. This makes the second year in a row for the DU's! Shortly after the FMOC Campaign, th e chapter was kept busy with "Hariequinade." Together with Gamma Phi Beta sorority, the DU's wrote and produced a skit which enabled them to compete in the finals. 'W ith hopes for new ideas and future leadership, nine teen fine men were initiated into the chapter on Sunday, March 23. They are: Paul StallswOl'th, Craig Young, Doug McKinley, Kent Farney, Ken Ewy, John Miesse, Jim 'Vilson, Rich Porter, Tom Stamey, Brent Kerbs, Steve An derson , Gary 'Va Iter, Steve Loofbourrow, Darrel Bryant, Chuck Burwell, Bob Smith , Ed Grimes, Steve Long, and Dave Gildersleve_ The Delta U's again hold many leadership positions on campus. Three of the fifteen Blue Key members for next year are DU's. They are Doug Jernigan, Clare Hakeman, and Mike Malone. Martin Bauer, Bill Mallory, and Mike Ma lon e were elected to Student Senate. Gary Sehelius was elected to tbe IFC Executive Board. Other honors coming to the DU's include Phi Kappa Phi, Steel Ring, Phi Eta Sigma, Sigma Tau, Eta Kappa Nu, and Chi Epsilon honoraries. And although we slipped to fifth out of twenty-four fraternities in grades last semester, with renewed effort we are working for better grades this spring. The DU's have fared well in intramurals this semester. At present we

140

are second on the hill, with a good chance to be n umber one in total intramurals by gTabbing' a first place in track. Some of our varsity athletes have also done well this semester. Th ese include Pete Bell, number one on the golf team; John Howland, in gymnastics and also voted the team's most improved athlete; and Ron Plemons in track. Turning to the social actlvltleS, this spring was highlighted by the Blue and Gold Formal at which time Miss Nancy Grothusen was crowned DU Sweetheart for the upcoming year. She will, however, be sharing honors with another new chapter sweetheart, Adrienne, our 150pound St. Bernard mascot. As the semester rapidly comes to a close ideas for a new and exciting cultural program are taking shape alon g with oth ers for pledge and active education in hopes for promoting a more progressive chapter.

Kent State Spring quarter always proves to be a very busy and worthwhile quarter for our chapter. It is the ending of our academic year and there are many things to be finished in order to insure a successful year. At this tim e of the year there are man y changes taking pl ace as a new administration takes charge. El ections for chapter offices were held during winter quarter and during spring qUal'ter, these officers assumed office. J osh Sivitz took the guiding- reins of our fraternity by becoming' the twenty-second president of the Kent State chapter. The other officers under the new administration include Vic Rocine as vice pres ident, Ron Fleming as recording secretary, Dan Tretinik as corresponding secretary, and Bob Mehl and Steve Kiacz as treasurer and assistant treasurer, respectively. Although this administration has been in office only a short tim e, there are many indications pointing' to a continuation of the success that our chapter has always enjoyed at Kent. The alumni committee headed by our vice president has been achieving very good results in reuniting our alumni with the present chapter_ Letters, forms , and suggestion sheets have been sent at various times to our alumni and the results are becoming evident now, after first encountering some slowness in l'eturns. During the middle of the quarter an alumni, father-son golf tournament was held and was a complete success in every way. Living up to the slogan of "A DU in everything, every DU in something-," many brothers in our chapter are distinguishing themselves in a variety of activities beyond the bounds of the Fraternity_ Starting off our list, we have brothers Rocine, Hyde, and Schorsten in Blue Key (national leadership honorary).

Brother John Virgili is treasurer of Student Senate. Major Events Committee is headed by Tom Hyde along with Dan Tretinik and Denny Wright. Brother Tom Welsh belongs to Sigma Delta Chi, national journalism honorary. Brother Bob Perko was currently concert chairman for the two concerts over the Campus Day weekend. Finally, Interfraternity Council contains Dave Lloyd as athletic committee chairman and Vic Rocine as secretary. Continuing the tradition of supplying many of Kent State's varsity athletes are Gary Zanhiser, Bill McGowan, and John Polgar in varsity baseball. Varsity football enjoys the services of T ed Bowersox and Terry Rubino, while captaining the Golden Flashes tennis team are Denny Zamberlan and Jim Lah!. The varsity soccer circui t sees action from Leo Long-o and Clint Tighe, while Rich Fechter is a hig'h jumper for the KSU track team . Al though the remainder of the brothers may not be in varsity sports, Delta Upsilon maintains a monopoly of superior athletes in intl'amural competition. After taking firsts in football (eight-year consecutive champs) and basketball, and placing' extremely high in every other sport, we are finishing up spring quarter in good style and should take the University All-Sports' Trophy again. ' ,Ve have had th e good fortune of winning' this trophy for the last seven out of eight years ancl the end of this string seems no where in sight. Spring formal is one of the highlig'hts of spring' quarter for our chapter. A t this affa ir, many of the yearly awards are given out to deserving broth ers . The Roberts Rin g is given out yearly at this event to the graduating senior with the highest accumulative average above a 3.00. This year it went to Bill McGowan with a 3.60 average. Outstanding active award went to Vic Rocine, with Sam Trego taking outstanding senior and Vinciguerra awards (outstanding athlete) . Most improved scholarship went to Josh Sivitz, and Gary Vaccano took the pledge scholarship award. Finally, the K-Girl award went to Madeline Mechir. Campus Day is the greatest highlight of the whole academic and social year at Kent State. Our chapter has had the honor of officially opening up Campus Day with the "painting of the K" on front campus by our K-Girl. This tradition has been in existence since 1923. Another great tradition we have kept alive is the printing of our bi-annual fraternity paper, the "Skull and Crossbones." This is the oldest publication on campus today since its founding in 1922_ Although the future looks bright for our chapter there is one point that each one of the brothers finds painful to think of. Our housemother, Mom Town, will be leaving us at

the end of spring quarter to see her daughter in England. All of the brothers, and especially the older brothers who have been through a lot with Mom, will miss her very much. "Vords cannot express our gratitude to her for all she has done for us, bm we wish her the very best of luck in all she does. DAN TRETINIK

Lafayette This year has brought a combination of activities for the undergraduate brothers of Lafayette Delta Upsilon. Although we graduated twentynine seniors in June, 1968, our inexperienced intramural teams fared well, with the basketball and volleyball teams both gaining the league playoffs. Next year, with only one senior ohn Squarcia) graduating, we should have strong contenders in every intramural sport. Further on the athletic scene, DU brothers are important parts of varsity teams in football, soccer, baseball, and golf. With brothers Zimmers, Triolo, Flohr, and McCombs in the backfield and brothers Staun, Lambert, Pollick, Wytenus, Bellis, Molchan, Denning, and Hartwig in the line, varsity football turned in a 7-3 record, the best in almost twenty years. Soccer with brothers Dandeneau and Landis, golf with brothers Pollick and Hutnik, and baseball with brothers McCombs and Bellis, also have enjoyed fine seasons. McCombs and Triolo were all路 MAC at defensive back and fullback, respectively, and Hutnik shot a sub-par sixty-six, the lowest golf round for a Lafayette duffer in ten years. Triolo was also honored with an honorablemention 011 the Little All America team.

a

We took a small pledge class of eigh t this semester, but with only one senior, the house census increased. Brothers Dandeneau and Flohr were high in scholastic average last semester and both men are on Dean's List. The chapter house has been improved greatly this year. "Ve just received new living room furniture costing in the neigh borhood of $2,600 from the Trustees. W'e would like to thank those who put in the time and made the money available for the much-needed new furniture. Our newly remodeled basement, now with a partitioned section of cafe booths and tables, was the scene of another successful champagne weekend dinner dance. The DU Sweetheart was announced by Social Chairman Jerry Dandeneau, and the brothers voted to award this honor to Miss Carol Crown, Brother Trio路 lo's pinmate. The basement was re路done through the efforts of brothers Lambert, B10hr and Otto, who gave up part of their Christmas vacation to install booths which were purchased through the Trustees. ,~r e look forward to a better schoo lastic record next year and a large rush in the second semester.

Lehigh The curren t semester has been one of continued success for the Lehigh chapter of Delta U. . Carrying through on the enthUSIasm that was established during last semester, our Ii rst in the nell' chap. ter house, th e brothers began this semester by pledging twenty-one freshmen.

The pledge program began immediately, and, with Ollr traditional policy of liberality, placed its primary emphasis on a member's responsibility to the house. Almost without exception, the pledges have given their wholehearted su pport to the brothers' efforts to teach the this responsibility. As a result, the brotherhood has again voted to go against Lehigh tradition and initiate the pledges in the spring. Ceremonies have been scheduled for Saturday, May 10. Socially, this has been one of the most active semesters in the history of our chapter. Aside from the regularly scheduled University events, many private affairs, such as a mixer with Centenary College for ''''omen, were planned, and the number of spontaneous parties was at an alltime high. In light of all these "extracurricular" activities, the brothers have not lost sigh t of their primary purpose in college-to graduate. Many long nights have been spent at the books and it is hoped the house average will be the highest in recent years. THOMAS UPTON

Louisville Things are beginning to get back to normal again after another great Kentucky Derby in Louisville. As usual, the "Run for the Roses" brought many visitors to the U of L campus from several parts of the country. With finals approaching, and a sobering air settling on campus, the DU's are finishing a very successful year, a year of progress and leadership on the U of L campus. Election of new alumni counselors Ralph Ruch, Keith Crume, and Larry Magnes, insures a fine advisory staff for new undergraduate officers (Bob Brand, president; John Silvey, vice president; Gerry Mitchell, treasurer; Ron Fallon, pledge master; and Gary Conklin, secretary). In intramurals we are running a close third, vaulting to that position by a championship baskethall team !ed by Buzzy Gianninni, Mad Dog Murphy, Randy, the Knee, Aton, Chipper Ellis, and Leapin' Larry Aronson. Spring has also seen DU's elected to campus leadership positions, Dale Henley, vice president of the Student Council; Bob Brand, vice president of the Interfraternity Council; and John Silvey, secretary of the same. Of special interest to perennial Derby visitors is the upcoming scheduled move the Louisville chapter will be making next spring. At that time we will relocate in a new, more spacious, brick house in a new, university-financed, fraternity housing complex from our present "histmical landmark."

MANITOBA . The chapter added sixteen outstanding men this )'ea1". U at Manitoba has drawn to a close. As is the case with most chapters, Manitoba has had to come to grips with several problems this year, most of them small but, admittedly, some formidabl e. 'Ve were indeed fortu nate in having a capable and unbiased president, lVlilt vVorbanski, who was able to bring each nell' situation into perspective. On the whole, one would have to

say that lvlanitoba had a very successful year. It is never good for a chapter to be too well satisfied, but DU has excelled in virtually every aspect of campus life. Not only do several brothers hold important positions on the executives of the various [acuities, but Bill Kennedy has recently been elected vice president of the Student Union, and Jim Kasky is the new IFC presid ent. In IFC sports, the chapter won the basketball championship and made it to the fi na Is in football. Scholastically, the grade point average probably is as high as it ever has been, and several of the broth ers are either entering or in the midst of postgraduate work in a wide variety of fields. Socially, the chapter ran the ga mut-everything from the usual exchanges and tallyhos to quiet get-togethers at the house during Christmas (for those who couldn't make it home). The formal , as usual , was a crashing success. Judy Harrower, pinned to Don McLean, was crowned chapter sweetheart. The year was ca pped with the annual "Theme Party." This yea r's theme was the U nited Nations. Ralph Prygrochi, who came as Poland, was a standout. This year sixteen handsome, suave, and all-round outstanding men became brothers in Delta U: Ray R ebick, Gord Willson, Matt Kiernan , Bruce Milne, Jamie Isbisher, Boh .J eITries, Tom Goodman, Rick Ramsay, Bob lVIilne, Jim Johnston , Joe Sigurdson, Paul Allen, Gerry Frazer, Peter Lahochi, Neil Reynolds (outstanding pledge), and Wally Badger.

Delta Upsilon activities on the Marietta campus lived up to expectations during the first part of the

seco nd semester and the OLI tlook for the rest of the year looks just as IHight. The semester began with our chapter taking the best group of pledges on campus-24 in all. During the next few weeks we held our typical weekend parties. Before Ollr Easter vacation at the end of March, the fellowship decided to take a weekend break at the Miami chapter in Oxford. Man y events were staged to keep liS occupied. All in all, it was termed a large success. After ollr vacation, the annual Marietta "S pring 'Veekend " was held. The DU 's started the event b)' having a "car wrecking" for the ben efit of the Heart Fund . vVe then made the most of th e remainder of the weekend by holding a "Viking Love feast," which was highlighted by the open-fired mast chicken and an occasional drink of wine. After this feast a party was held at the chapter house in true Viking' style. On lVlay 4 we brought into our house twenty-three new actives. The)' include sophomore Mike Cramer, and freshmen Mark Albert, Steve Barnhorst, Kim Campbell, Charles Coplen, Jerry Crean, Lance Danbe, Gar)' Field, Rees Gillespie, Colin Hodgen, Robert Levy, Ray Lowe, Steve Luce, Dave Marcus, Albert Mylod, James Rice, Ken Roane , Scott Runkle, Steve Silberman, John Stevens, Bruce 'Whitehead, and Chris Wilkenson. The following Monday elections were held . Our new president is Dave Gustafson, with Fred Behr serving in the vice-presidential job. The rest of the officers include Randy Forbes as treasurer, Charles Coplen as recording secretal'y, and Colin Hodgen as corresponding secretary. The latter part of the year seems to hold just as much variety as the first part, with three more social events being held. The year will be

LVI ichigan State Spring is coming on strong here 'at Michigan State, and so are the DU's. We are busily g'etting ready for Greek '~Teek, hoping to retire the Greek I'Veek trophy if we win the Greek I'Veek participation trophy as we have done for the last two years. 'Ve should have no problem with the number of brothers involved in Greek IVeek. Robert Stellingworth is following in David McGraw's footsteps as he takes over as Greek vVeek chairman . One of the highlights of the I'Veek is the ugliest Gl'eek contest, which we are again sponsoring. "Ve've been very active in sports this year, and it's proved to be a successful year. IVe're hopefully on our way to the all-sports trophy, with the All-University hockey championship and the All-Fraternity pingpong championship already captured by the DU house. Spring' has brought baseball fever to the house, and so far our softball team is un defeated. The brothers have been active in other campus activities this year. Don Banghart is now cabinet president of the student government. Steve Plichta just took over the pop entertainment chairmanship . It looks like that job may become a DU tradition, since Steve is taking' the post from graduating brother Roger Anthony. Ken Krell is now editorial director of the daily campus paper. New officers took over spring term. David l'ranzetta J'etains his position as president, Pete Chatfield is now vice president, John Stiles is the new secretary, Bruce London is pledge trainer, and Scott JVIace stays on as treasurer. Howard Alley is alumni relations secretary, Linwood Pedrick is now rush chairman, John I~Telch is our new social chairman, and Ken Krell is public relations chairman. vVe've been busy this year improving the physical appearance of our house as well. ~Tinter term we paneled our dining room and extensive remodeling of the house will take place this summer. Brothers have taken over the daily cleaning chores and bussing a t dinner in an effort to save money. Little Sisters of the Seven Stars are completing their first year as an auxiliary organization of Delta Upsilon. They've been a big asset during rush and other social events. It's invigorating to see a female face around the house once in a while! DU's have the largest spring term pledge class on campus this term, thanks to a very successful HISh this DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

term. Our rushing' procedures are now being followed by a number of other houses on campus. vVe have nineteen new pledges hard at work this spring. This is the third term in a row that DU's have had the largest pledge class on campus. All of our extracurricular activities haven't hurt our grades, however. I'Vinter term we were among the top three houses in scholastic standing. New improvements in our library have made it a better place to study.

Minnesota Change is the key word at the Minnesota chapter these days. Brother Dick Green was recently elected president for the forthconiing year and has already demonstrated his great potential. vVith the invaluable ass is tance of Blake Biles, house counselor and former president of the University of Kansas chapter, a nell' spirit was g'enerated at Minnesota tha t is sure to carry ns to success. Delta Upsilon at Minnesota is particularly proud of its achievement in the area of scholarship. Collectively the brothers maintained a 2,9 grade point average for winter quarter, which should place the chapter among the top five fraternities on campus. Intramurals proved to be a fruitful venture this year. Apart from fielding strong teams in hockey, volleyball, and softball, the chapter captured the fraternity class "C" basketball championship and went on to place second in all-nniversity competition. Of course our chapter has done its fair share in social service to the university community. The most successful blood drive ever held on campus was sponsored jointly by Delta Upsilon and Delta Delta Delta sorority. And not to forget, George Tucker capably represented us in the Campus Ugly Man Contest. The year was brought to a close with our annual Spring Dikiai Ball on May 17, followed on May 24 by our Alumni Stag. Both events witnessed a larg'e alumni turnout, making them all the more successful. At present the chapter is busily engaged under the leadership of Gary Hellmer in instituting a [ulltime summer rush program. I,Ve have no doubts that we will return in the fall with the finest pledge class on campus. DOUGLAS 'VIEGAND

rific success. And for the first time on this campus there will be an accredited course held at nigh t off campus. It will be a discussion seminar and is being sponsored and held by our chapter in the house. In the chapter house we have renovated substantially. Our living room has just been redecorated and our chapter meeting room and den have also been re-done. '~Te have just had our parking lot paved and with the property which we own next door (noll' being leased), our plans and opportunities for expansion are unlimited. Several persons within the house have won campus-wide recognition this spring'. Ron Sergent was initiated into QEBH, senior men's honorary, for his campus politics and student and faculty service as well. Bill Schoehardt was named outstanding sophomore 111 idshipman of the year in Naval ROTC. Warren Seel'ing was engineer of the ycar, and even our housemother, Mrs. Jones, got into the act and was elected the president of tbe Housemothers' Club. Plans for the Convention are shaping up quite nicely here. IVe have two Holiday Inns and a new Ramada Inn in Columbia and plans for nightly entertainment have been made with all of these. Mark Twain Dormitory has been arranged for and all of the undergraduate brothers will be staying there, wi th airconditioning and a swimming pool available. The summer promises to be as glorious and exciting as the regular school year with the Convention. The plans are tremendous, as befit this fraternity. See you in August!!!

Nebmslw In a year that included taking a forty-three-man pledge class, being chosen as one of the six acts for Kosmet Klub, and placing second in the Homecoming Display contest with the able assistance of the Delta Gamma's, the Nebraska chapter has still found time to place emphasis on scholarship and the all-important issue of pledge training. Good study habits and twentyfour-hour quiet hours helped the brothers to maintain scholastic excellence, with the house finishing' in the upper quartile of fraternities on campus. The very active Interfraternity Council, presided over by Joe Vobaril, has set up campus-wide standm'ds of progressive pledge training, programs that in the past few years have proved very successful at the Nebraska DU house. A pledge contract to assure mature pledge training, signed by all the fraternities on the Nebraska campns, was recently pu t in to effect. For his efforts as IFC president and as vice president of Corn Cobs, the men's spirit organization, and

143


for a 3.8 culmulative grade point average, Brother Voboril was tackled as one of the thirteen new members of the Innocent Society, the senior men's honorary. In the recent elections for house officers, Steve Smith was elected president. Walt Wood is the new vice president, with John Inserra serving as secretary and Chip Warren functioning as treasurer. Steve Remboldt is the new pledge trainer. Other men in the house hold down key positions in IFC, Union, Builder's, Corn Cobs, various student publications, and on the track, g-ymnastics, and baseball teams. Woodsies, intramural softball games, and a host of social activities kept spring hopping. At the annual Weekend Party, where the girls move into the house and the boys move out, Miss Linda Holstein, Chi Omega, was named the 1969 Chapter Sweetheart. With summer comes rush. This year's rush chairman, Larry Harms, will keep busy planning major panies and small get-togethers and visiting rushees around the state. MIKE RAGLIN

The new pledge program of the North Carolina chapter has caused more discussion than any other aspect of the house's activities, both among the brotherhood and on campus. In changing from old-line pledging to a more modern, innovative policy, we have encountered many transitional problems. We are working toward a program in which each pledg·e can be accepted by the brothers on the basis of his individual 11)erits in the spirit of genuine and sincere friendship. By eliminating pledge subservience, we hope to remove unity through fear. A closeknit fraternity group with enthusiasm coming from deep personal identification with a brotherhood which must earn their loyalty will be the result. Presently, our pledge program is developing around the concept of pledges as friends and future brothers. In the fall of 1968 Pledge Master George Isherwood experimented with a "pilot orientation" for our new pledges. On a Saturday afternoon two brothers with knowledge of group sensitivity training discussed informally with two groups of

144

five pledges their responsibilities to the Fraternity and to each other. Questions of identity, of goals and needs, and of a new image for fraternities in general were all dealt with to assist the personal development of these new members within our established environment. The purpose was to define the roles of pledges and brothers as clearly as possible, and to open up communication between the two groups. Stemming from this came the idea that pledges themselves should take the initiative in formulating their own program, which has worked to some extent, but still needs improvement. The program includes a Big Brother system, chapter meetings open to pledges, and a Pledge Advisory Board. Big Brothers give individual attention to pledges and help them with any problems which they encounter in the course of these three or four months. Open chapter meetings encourage interest and participation by pledges in the actual workings of the chapter. We have found that although attendance is not required for pledges, they do come because they are concerned about the house and because they know that they can voice their opinions on an equal standing with any brother. The Pledge Advisory Board, originally created to guide pledges who were having serious problems adjusting to the Fraternity, has been expanded by the current pledge master, Scott Shellhaas. It now has both permanent status and the specific responsibility of encouraging frank and open dialogue between each pledge and the brotherhood in several regular meetings each semester. In addition , it has been convened to make sugges tions both to the pledge master and to the chapter on the program itself. Each pledge class has its own independent activities which serve to bind the group closer together and to create a closer relationship with the brotherhood. In recent years, the Bucknell, Layfayette, Florida, Ru tgel's, and Penn State chapters have hosted our pledges on their weekend "Pledge Trips," giving th em the additional benefit of seeing another DU chapter in operation. In the spring the pledge class competes against all the other classes on campus in the Alpha Phi Omega-sponsored Greek ''''eek in athletics, carnival games, and fund-raising projects for charity. In addition, each class works together on some self-designed project as a gift to the house. This spring, the pledges formed their own intramural teams and played in all-fraternity athletic competition. Hazing, which includes sending pledges on errands and requiring them to carry matches and change for brothers, is completely absent from our pledge program because we wish to reduce the senseless pressure under which both pledges and brothers live. From pledges who

learn their "material" out of fear, or who do pushups to amuse the up· perclassmen, come brothers who leave the work of the ch apter to others and who attend chapter functions only because they do not want to be fined . The aim of our new outlook, however, is to capitalize on initial pledge enthusiasm, and find a way to maintain that throughout brotherhood. In the future a great deal of continued serious thinking and experi. mentation is essential if our program is to accomplish the goals of the Fraternity. Since we reject group iden ti ty thwugh group ordeal, we need and want to find identity in other ways. Among the ideas most prominent in our minds are a gradual change in the blackball system, an early Pledge-Active retreat for the purpose of exchanging ideas about DU and the fraternity system, and a large number of camping or beach trips. 'Ve have found that by getting away together into new sun-oundings interpersonal communication can develop best. Also, we believe that by having each officer in the chapter explain his duties to the pledges, they will be encouraged to participate in the day-to-day work of the house along with the brothers. In a larger sense, ou r tradi tional attitudes must change. Every single brother must make a special effort to get to know pledg·es within the first critical month of their pledging period. Involvement in campus activities of mutual interest has to be stressed -in student government, varsity athletics. Campus political organizations, and all other extracurriculars. For example, our present Faculty Fellows program brings faculty members to the fraternity house for lunch on a regular basis. This provides pledges and brothers with the opportunity for contact with some of the more stimulating minds on campus. Informal discussions with faculty and university administrators will expand our awareness of contemporary issues and of the position of the fraternity system in the university community. Essentially, what we want to do is to capture the enthusiasm of the pledges, and to encourage this spirit to grow as the pledges and brothers grow together in Delta Upsilon. For we feel that the chapter owes each man more than mere integration into the brotherhood. It owes him an organization which will enrich his life and in which he will feel genuine identity and a lifetime commitment.

Other academic honors for these three were soon forthcoming as Rusty Drugan won a Rhodes Scholarship and a Danforth Fellowship, Kip Cranna captured a 'Woodrow 'Vilson Scholarship, and ' ,Van'en Halvorson received a Rotary Scholarship to study in Europe after his graduation. Delta Upsilon again won the scholarship trophy, making the nineteen tb semester that the trophy has resided in our chapter house. Del ta Upsilon expanded its activities in community affairs as several DU's chose to cooperate with the Mayor's Human Relations Committee investigating racism in the city of Grand Forks, opting for more peaceful methods of settling racial problems than have been evidenced on other campuses.

N oTtheTn Illinois The spring semester of Northern Illinois chapter started out on a successful note by initiating seventeen pledges. In addition to this, we received word from the Dean of Men's office that we had the top g.p.a. among all national fraternities with a 2.5 average, and third in all the fraternities. Our pledges were also third in g.p.a. among the other pledge classes with a 2.3. However, our efforts were soon directed toward sp~"ing rush. Under a new rush system, and the leadership of Rick Strohm, we pledg"ed sixteen fine, diversified men: Steve Baughman, Jim Bennett, Scott Buckles, Frank Cittadino, Mike Cummings, Fred Frey, Jerry Gutshall, Dave Hicks, Dan Huber, Woody Kramm, Don Kammradt, Tom McKiernon, Steve Roche, Greg Sladek, Bruce Van Gelder, and Jerry Zielinski. Pledges McKiernon and Zielinski averaged 22.5 and 29.4 respectively for NIU's freshman team and are expected to DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY路

play an important role in NIU basketball for the next three years. A resol u tion was just passed by our chapter dealing with the DU Unpledge Program. The resolution called for an informal discussion between pledges and actives dudng an active meeting. It's hoped that during this discussion, differences among the actives and pledges concerning fraternity policies such as pledging, getting signatures, and other things may be worked out. We hope that this will break down the barrier between pledges and actives. Chapter relations programs have been quite active this semester. 'Ve passed ou t roses to all sorority pledges, sponso~'ed a Mother's Day Banquet in the University Center Sky Room, and formed a Little Sisters' Club. In addition to this we were hosts to the Province VII Leadership Seminar. Various brothers have actively participated in campus affairs this past semester. Jim Smith, leading scorer and top rebounder on NIU's basketball team, was selected the most valuable player for the second straight year. He was just recently drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA and the Miami Floridians of the ABA. Rick Ciesla and John Williams are currently ou t for spring football practice. Both are figured to play key roles in the Huskies upcoming football season. Gary Olen, Glen Sowa, and Dave Hannula are three stalwarts of the Huskie baseball team coached by Thomas Meyer, Northwestern. Olen is currently leading the team in hitting while Hannula is one of the best Husky pitchers and leading the team in home runs. Sowa is one of the Huskies top relief pitchers. Ken Trantowski was selected as editor of the school newspaper, NOI路them Stal', which recently received an All路 American rating. In addition to this he received the Thomas Fullmer memorial award for outstanding achievement in the journalistic fields of copy editing and reporting during the 1968-69 academic year. Bill Malloy, president for 1968-69 school year, received the AI Heindel "Brother of the Year Award." The active brothers vote for the person who best practices the Four Principles of Delta Upsilon, shows enthusiasm, and sportsmanship for the year. The DU's have almost completely dominated the haternity sports scene at NIU. We started by winning the fraternity volleyball championship by beating the SAE's. We placed second in the Phi Kappa Theta Charity Basketball tournament by losing a heart breaker to an independent team. Dan Murphy was the leading scorer, however, in the tournament with 24.0 average. In softball we are currently leading our league with a 3-1 record. vVe also won the fraternity, swimming championship

and are partiCipating in the 1M track meet. Should we do well in both softball and track, we should win the Fraternity All Sports Trophy. Winter Carnival and May Fete are two more campus events that the DU's excelled in. We won Snow Sculpture and the best slogan in Winter Carnival. During May Fete, we won the canoe races for tbe fifth straight yeal' and we also sponsored Powder Puff Softball. Our pledges won the pajama races for the second straigh t year. Our newly elected officers are: Bob Houston, president; Tom Dunlop, vice president; Jim Chesko, chapter relations; Ian Ostergaard, recording secretary; and Mike Todnem, treasurer.

N oTtheTn Iowa The Northern Iowa chapter of Delta Upsilon started out the spring semester with the activation of these members of the fall pledg"e class: Tom Johnson, Tim We is, Greg Hoover, Gene Yagla, Mike Engler, Jerry Keenan, Bill Meinen, Craig Grace, Don Steele, Gary Sharp, and Steve Thornton. Don Steele was selected outstanding pledge. In spring rush, the DU's picked up five outstanding . young men as pledges: Mark Buhrow, Marlin Possehl, Lon Spurgin, Kevin Parsons, and Rich Eddy. In intramurals, the DU's find themselves in second place in the fraternity division after ten sports. We racked up the fraternity division volley ball crown and added the championship in the handball singles with Larry Miller doing the honors. 'Ve won the overall team free throw championship, with pledge Lon Spurgin winning" the individual championship. On the social scene with social chairman Ron Young ably guiding, the DU's held their first annual casino party at the chapter house with the theme "Let's 'Gambol' in the House." A good time was had by all. We had a Rally-Party with the Delta Chi's with a dance at Gates Park preceded by a car rally that took the brothers on a merry chase through "Waterloo. We are now eagerly waiting for our annual spring formal dinner dance to be held at Howard Johnsons. A swimming party will follow and a good time is anticipated by all. We are also planning our annual i\'fothers' Day tea to be held May 18. On a more serious note, the DU'~ finished first in scholastics in tbe active chapter with a 2.60 grade point average. We finished third in the overall standings. As we reflect back over our first full year as DU's we feel we have made large strides forward, but we have even further to go! We are looking forward to more success next year with a strong slate of officers:

N oTthwesteTn 'Vith the beginning of 1969, theNorthwestern chapter continued its leadership in all areas of campus life. Senior John Schicher was elected to membership in Phi Beta Kappa, joining Steve Saylor, who was inducted last year as a juniol'. Athletically, six seniors were given special recognition when they were inducted into the "N" 1'l'1en's Club. Dick Noffke received a plaque for his performance on the baseball team, as did Terry Gamber for his accomplishments as captain of the basketball squad. Ray Forsthoffer has been elected co-captain of the 1969 Northwestern football team. "Vildcat Council took in three more DU's this year, and two brothers were selected for NU Garde, giving us a very good-sized l'epresentation on these very important groups. Gary Paterson was elected treasurer of the Northwestern sophomore class and was appointed co-chairman of the sophomore class social-entertainment committee. The current house officers, Bruce Geiss, Jim l\'I eier, Nels Johnson, and Paul Howell, have been working hard for the betterment of DU. Right noll', the pledge training program is being studied and revised so that it will be ready to run smoothly and effectively this fall. GARY PATERSON

Ohio Spring quarter began with one of the hottest rushes on campus. During formal rush week , a fire broke out in one of the second-floor rooms of the chapter house. Amid smoke and confusion the rushees were forced to evacuate the house. Fortunately damage was confined to one room. The brothers wished that the rushees had not taken the smoker so literally. Once again the brothers participated in a number of service projects which aided both the University and the community at large. The chapter donated funds to send a deaf athlete to an international sports meet abroad. Mike Roth aided in the instruction of retarded children, contributing' his time in effort in swimming education. During Ohio University's Greek ''''eek, many of the brothers solicited donations for the Campus Chest Fund. In the same week the entire chapter entertained two children from the Athens Children's Home. The Ohio ' chapter was one of the fraternities on campus chosen to participate in the Visitor-in-Residence

146

l'rogTam. Under this program, outstanding' men of many professions are brought to Ohio University to describe their work to students. ''''e were fortunate in housing James T. Rismiller, who is involved in the various aspects of television production. He has assisted in the Andy Griffith Show, and is currently manager of the Lennon Sisters. He has also aided in the production of the Bob Hope specials. Our chapter once again made a notable showing in campus sports. For the third year in a row, we won all-campus horse shoes. Om volleyball team placed third in the fraternity division of intramural sports. Our swim team, the Tankers, placed fourth in all-campus competition . The Fraternity'S social year was climaxed by the crowning of Miss Tina Arntsen of Chi Omega sorority as the Fraternity Sweetheart.

Ohio State Football has been the key word on the Ohio State campus this year. The chapter fire truck represented the DU's part in celebrating the important victories of th e undefeated season . In support of the national champions, our chapter was represented by fifteen enthusiastic Buckeye brothers at the Rose Bowl. Events leading to victory included the parading of the DU 's sign in the Tournament of Roses Parade. ' ,Vinter quarter saw active participation by Delta Upsilon in campus events. During Greek "Veek our brass band captured more hardware for om trophy case. DU intramural basketball teams played in championship tournament action. The chapter raised its scholastic rating to third among the large fraternities on campus with an averag'e point hour ratio of 2.77 on a 4.00 scale. Brothers Holliday and Bispeck were honored with campus awards for their 4.00 achie'vements. Columbus area alumni have given us excellent support again this year. Carpeting for upstairs hallways, television room, and study room, and painting' supplies were used by the brothers to improve conditions in our chapter house. Appreciation for alumni enthusiasm is hereby acknowledged. Chapter elections began the spring quarter calendar. Brothers newly elected to executive board offices are: Bill Anders, president; John Alberty and Mario Padilla, vice presidents; Richard Atkinson, treas urer; and Bruce Claugus, secretary. Important chapter action was taken by altering ou r rush program. In order to separate some responsibilities and to alleviate problems with summer rush, we are now operating' summer rush under a rllsh coordinator, in charge of the organization of the program. Execution of the program of rush itself is the responsibility of a regular rush chairman. Fall Quarter Rush

'Neek is the separate responsibility of another bl'Other in charge of only this most important chapter rushing period . In the past only one man was expected to fill all of these jobs. This year's membership has been increased by twenty-two new men. Chapter size is increasing and we are now beginning to focus our attention more toward campus involvement. DU is beginning to get its foot deeper into athletics this year. Dan D'Amico and pledge Craig Rush are starting' defenseman and goalie for the freshman lacrosse team. Bruce Claugus is the chapter's representative on the varsity soccer team. Pledg'e Eric Kilby played varsity hockey for the Buckeye icers. 'Ve al'e presently l'ushing members of our famous football team and are making efforts to improve our chapter in the area of participation in varsity sports. Next fall Stan Laybourne plans to compete again in varsity cross-country. During May Week festivities, Delta Upsilon showed itself as a powerful campus contender. Again our instru mental group, supported by Delta Gamma sorority, placed second in the talent show. The DU-Kappa Kappa Gamma carnival booth placed fourth out of fifty entries. Bed racers challenged all oncomers but were rained out of the competition at the last moment. DU's cheered at the announcement of Andrea "Valker as Queen of May 'Veek. Hopefully our support as sponsor aided Andrea in receiving this honor. The campus May Day events were coordinated with the aid of six brothers with positions on campus committees for the organization of May Week. Congratulations to DU 's tapped into campus honoraries during May v\leek. Brothers Bispeck is now a Romophos man. Brother Alberty is a new member of the campus history honorary. Personal achievements also to be commended are by Byron Larson for making Ohio Union activities committee, and by Brother Padilla for petitioning for the Ohio State Traditions Board. Final events of spring quarter are the Sweetheart Dinner and Picnic ''''eekend, and a swimming party. DAVID M. "VARD

Ohlahoma Th is semester has been a successful one for the DU chapter at Oklahoma. vVe initi ated twenty-six men the first of March, the largest initiate class of this chapter, and the earliest initiation of any fraternity on campus. The large initiate cl ass we attribute to the new membership development program adapted from the Kansas Report, because we not only pledged more men, using the mature pledge program as a selling point, but kept more, having the lowest attrition rate we have ever

DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY'

Ju.ly 1969


had. By initiating soon after first semester grades come ou t, we hope to reverse the trend on campus of an almost year-long pledgeship for those who pledge during rush week. 'Ve now have nineteen pledges, including varsity athletes John 'Watson and Ron Stacy, who will be initiated before classes begin in the fall. For first semester we were seventh out of twenty-two fraternities in scholarship, slightly lower than our usual ranking. In intramural sports we were in the playoffs in basketball and placed second in baseball. 'W e continue to have excellent relations with other DU chapters, having' exchanged meals with the OSU chapter this semester and having been well represented at the installations of the Creig'hton and Texas at Arlington chapters. DU's maintain their high level of participation in campus activities. Larry Huffman is MUN secretarygeneral for next year and is a Univel"sity Supreme Court Justice. Jack Edens and Larry Humphreys are members of the Student Senate and 'Vendell Boyce and John Constantikes are presidents of two of the dorm complexes. "With 150 date cards signed before the end of school we plan to pledge approximately forty men again next year during rush week. We will cosponsor a campus-wide dance during the welcoming activities next fall and will enter Sooner Scandals with Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. New officers for next fall are Larry Huffman, president; Jack Smith, vice president; Curt Long, secretary; Mike 'Vinzenread, treastuer; and Mike Mancillas, chapter relations chairman. The Oklahoma chapter would like to thank the alumni, the Dads' Club, and the Moms' Club for their continuing support throug"h house improvements, opening" their homes to us for rush parties, the Buck-aMonth Club, and other like activities. Such support is essen tial to our growth and well-being and is heartily appreciated by every man in the chapter.

Oklahoma State The Oklahoma State DU's started off the second semester by welcoming a new hostess, Mrs. Jane Swann. Mom Swann took readily to fraternity life, th is being" her first time as a housemother. New officers were elected for the spring and fall semesters of 1969. Ed Derrick was chosen as president; Gary Hunter, vice president; Steve Chambers, treasurer; Paul Parks, l"ecording secretary; and Bob Billings, corresponding secretary. The DU house was the scene and April 24 was the date of the second annual "Hester Street Bash," a street dance sponsored jointly by Delta Upsilon, Alpha Tau Omega, and Kappa Alpba fraternities. Our house band, DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

OKLAHOiHA STATE. The backdroj) sy'm.bolizes the l!"a11sition from pledge to active tor the March class Of in'itial.es. "Boss Tweed," provided the music that an estimated 1,000 people danced to during the night. A success in every respect, another perfOl"lnance is currently being planned for next year. The morning was cold and snowy as sixteen pledges were initiated in nearby St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in March. The new members are Byron Johnson , Ed Cooper, Terry Goggin, Carl Chase, Larry Williams, David Rose, Chuck Slaton, Lindell Gardner, Kevin Lynch, Roger Robertson , Joe Looper, Kim Ludhun, Bill Schmidt, Gregg Puckett, and John Haddad. Joe Pike was chosen "Outstanding Initiate" and was g"iven the travelin g badge worn by recipients of that disting"uished award.

A buffet luncheon following" the ceremony was held at the chapter house. A party honoring the new initiates was given that night at the Elk's Country Lodge. An estimated 150 persons attended the formal affair. The initiate class project was to make the first con tri bu tion to the new chapter house building" fund. The fund has since been renamed the Ira D. Crews, Sr., Building Fund in honor of the chapter's first initiate. Cutoll's and sweatshirts were the order of the day as the DU's turned out in droves for a barn-painting, the chapter's spring work project. Thirty gallons of paint and two Satm"day afternoons were required to complete the project, which added a hefty sum to the chapter's treasury. The Spring Rush Party for high school seniors was held April 12-13 with over fifty rushees and their dates attending. Brothers and guests alike enjoyed an afternoon of football on the shores of the Cimarron River, followed by a dance that eve-

ning high atop the Jim Smith Building in downtown Stillwater. University President Robert B. Kamm and his wife were serenaded by the DU's on the sloping" lawn of the presidential mansion in April. Afterwards, Dr. Kamm invited the men in for refreshments and a tour of his home, and Mrs. Kamm provided unexpected entertainm ent by playing old favorites on a centuryold organ that belonged to her [ather. Ira D . Crews, Jr., corporation treasurer, was th is year's recipient of the Meritorious Service Award. Dr. "Wayne Purcell, DU's faculty advisor, was named Alumnus of the Year. In the same program Bill Bried, a Delta Upsilon field secretary, was presented with a special award by chapter president Ed Derrick. The award , signed by Oklahoma Governor Dewey Bartlett, named Bill an honorary "Okie." Thirty men of the chapter paid a visit to their brothers at the University of Oklahoma and were treated to a delicious dinner and an evening of entertainment. This display of hospitality and brotherhood created a precedent in interchapter relationships. DU's Ed Massey recaptured his crown as All-University intramural wrestler, this year at 191. His victory helped the chapter place sixth this year in intramural wrestling. :May 11 was the date oE DU's second-semester Parents' Day. Eighty parents took advantage of sunny skies to attend a picnic held in their honor on the shores of nearby Boomer Lake. The Delta U's have one of the largest memberships on campus, according to information published in the 1969 OSU yearbook. Only three fraternities have larger memberships. Prospects are bright for another

excellent summer rush with Lindell Gardner and Ed Derrick being named as summer rush co-chairmen. The Oklahoma State chapter goes into the summer months with thirty commitments from active brothers and pledges to attend the l35th Annual Delta Upsilon Leadership Conference in August. They hope to learn new ideas at the Convention that will make the coming school year even more successful than the last. TERRY GOGGIN

Oregon ,,,Tinter term started out with a bang at our formal house dance at Mt. Hood. The brothers have enjoyed great skiing this year due to the record snowfall, thirty-six inches of which accumulated at Eugene. "Ve have added four pledges and ten members to the rolls of Delta Upsilon since December. The pledges are Tom Lasley, Al Brooks, John Ziarnik, and John Long. Ten new members were initiated during winter and spring terms, including Mark Litchman, Dick Loomis, Ed Humble, Ron Hunt, Rick McKenzie, Ron Hoodye, Dennis Harper, John Long, Kevin Clark , and Dale Bracy, bringing the total to sixteen new members this year. The house has carried on its tradition of social concern. tied down fint place among fraternities for the second time in three years in the annual March of Dimes crusade. Five members, Mike l'vIorrison, Guy Silva. Mark Conway, Greg Wilson, and Gary ''''oodcock, have spent worthwhile hours with their underprivileged YMCA-sponsored little brothers. On campus, we increased our political participation by securing' the offices of IFC vice president, tribunal chairman, and rush chairman. Through a team effort, guided by the hard work of chairman Dick Powell, we took first place in the seventy-sixth annual Canoe Fete during Mothers' ''''eekend. In keeping with the trend of increasing student activism on campus, the house participated in IFC sensitivity groups designed to search for sol u tions to problems regarding the fraternity system on campus. A newly instituted speaker program is already a success. ''''e have had speakers from such diverse organizations as the draft resistance, Omega, and also the head football coach, Jerry Frei. The program is designed to give members a broader view of current even ts. We had a marked improvement in scholarship. The house was in the top third of fraternities with a 2.73 average winter term. The addition of ten new members demonstrates pledge class scholarship. Our freshmen are winning athletic laurels. Dick Loomis and Bernie Hansen are doing outstanding jobs on the frosh crew team . Don Matthews is a good backfield prospect

for next year's varsity. Al Brooks, one of our newest pledges, a transfer from the University of Houston, is first man on the freshman golf team. Al has won the Northwest Amateur and was medalist in the Northwest NCAA high school championship. Winter and spring terms have been on the upswing socially. We have had Friday at 4:00's with Kappa Alpha Theta, Alpha Phi, and our DU Darling comt. In February, the brothers and their dates enjoyed a boxer short function. Finishing off the term, Gary Lee made some of his famous Chinese noodles for a Saturday night date function. April was highlighted by a pre-concert social prior to Peter, Paul, and Mary, and a DU-sponsored dance to which we invited five other houses. To round out the month, an all-house stag function was held at Spencer's Butte. Good weather, plenty of refreshment, and a big-little brother softball game gave members and pledges an excellent opportunity to get together. The spring house dance is set for May 31 on the Oregon coast at Gearhart. It is the hope of the newly elected officers: Jon Beaty, president; John Lipke, vice president; Randy Clark, treasurer; Bob "Vatson, secretary; Gary Lee, rush chairman; Denny Homer, social; Dave Sorenson, 'pledge trainer; Mike Morrison, scholarship chairman; Al Mitchell, house manager; Douglas B. Gordon, IFC representative; and Chuck Combs, chapter relations, that with support from a strong brotherhood we can add to ou r record. CHUCK COMBS

Oregon State An active social schedule, a strong intramural showing, and a change in leadership hig'hlighted the past several terms for the Oreg'on State chapter of Delta Upsilon. Elections were held during the last part of winter term. Newly elected officCl's include Kirk McGraw, president; Max Corley, vice president; Marc Baldwin, secretary; Tom "Vindedahl, treasurer; Clark Hoss, house manager. Others are Bob Bailey, IFC representative; Steve Thorsted, rush ch a irman; Bill Harkey, songleader; Miles McCoy, chapter relations and historian. Eight new members were initiated during the past two terms: Marc Baldwin, Bill Harkey, Jeff Waymack, Jim Schwan, Jim Davids, Glen Rollins, Dennis Amonsen, and Mark Jensen. Academically, our membership average was well above the all-men 's average. Top gTade honors were shared by Don Laird and Jim Schwarz, both with 3.81. Others breaking the 3.0 mark included Max Corley, Clark Hoss, Miles IvIcCoy, Wal ter Steffy, Greg Amsbery, Dave Loney, and Ray Bonesteele. DU's continued their domination

of Encore, the concert planning' com mittee. During this year's elections, two more DU's, Miles McCoy and Jim Davids, were elected the "central" committee. The committee is presently headed by President Don Laird and Vice President Steve Thorsted, both chapter members. Freshman Mark Jensen was elected to Thanes, the sophomore honorary, while Jeff Pritchard continued his fine work on the Freshman Senate. Showing spirit and initiative, Bob Bailey, IFC representative, presented his peti tion and spearheaded the drive for more liberal fraternity visitation hours. The success of the program marked th e first major move made by the IFC in several years . Several members of the OSU chapter received special recognition on campus. Don Laird was tapped for the highly selective Blue Key, the senior men's honorary. Freshman Jim Davids was chosen as a member of the Delta Gamma Sorority Anchor Man Court. Sophomore Max Corley was selected as an officer of the NROTC drill team, this year's Northwest drill champions. Our treasurer, Tom 'Vindedahl, was also elected as vice president of the Cooperative Managers Association, the organization that handles all the food and services for the Greek living groups. Athletically the house fared well in intramural competition. Bob Bailey took the All- University title in the l58-pound division of the weightlifting championships. In bowling, Mal Maas, Kirk McGraw, Dave Loney, and Bill Harkey got together to take the All- University team bowling championship. The rebounding of Greg Fisk and the ou tside shooting and ball hanclling of Jim Davids and George Dalich led the chapter to an undefeated league title in basketball. Jay Nicholas, ace back-up man, was seriously injured during the playoffs. Entering two categories of competition for the first time this year , several men boosted our 1M point totals. ]'vIal Maas placed second in the All-School singles billiards tournament and then teamed up with Kirk McGraw for another secondplace finish in the doubles. We earned many points this year in wrestling, with Clark Hoss grappling to a third-place finish in the heavyweight division. On the intercollegiate level, Clark Hoss is currently vying for a starting berth a t tight end on the OSU football team. Hoss also plays basketball for the OSU varsity team. An honorary banquet for two-time Nobel Pl'ize winner Linus Pauling highlighted a busy chapter social schedule. Pauling, a local charter member, l'eminisced with his fellow classmates and revealed many strange house traditions. The campus rocked to the wild

concert schedule presented to the students. Headliners included The Iron Butterfly; The Grassroots; Step· penwolf; Three·Dog Nite; Jefferson Airplane; Peter, Paul, and Mary; and the Fifth Dimension . A monogrammed tap was put to the test at keg functions on Moms' and Dads' Weekends, which are de· signed to initiate the parents to the fra temity social atmosphere. This year showed a marked increase in attendance at the honorary weekends. Heading the winter term social calendar was the house dance. Dubbed "Beaver Patrol," the dance costume consisted of knee· length nightshirts. Spring term marked the big social event of the year: our annual Spring Term Flower Formal. Dressed in bright spring fashions , DU's and their dates danced in a room trans· formed into a flowery paradise. Real flowers covered the walls and ceiling, representing a week of hard work. Our DU Darling Court was se· lected and announced during the dance. Our new DU Darling is Kathy DeJardin , Delta Gamma . Her court includes Ellen Hopper, Kappa Alpha Theta; Cathy Adolphson, Alpha Chi Omega; Margi Morrison, Kappa AI· pha Theta; and Nancy Smith, Delta Delta Delta. Our outgoing DU Darling, Denise Blais, was chosen as Ore· gon 'S representative to the National College Queen competition which was held in Flmida in April.

Pacific In keeping with DU's motto; "A DU in everything and every DU in something" our house began a very produ ctive and successful semester. DU was highly represented this spring in interCOllegiate sports. Craig Reece started and played an outstanding g'ame in this year's spring alumni game. Included on the alumni team were Gary Woznick, Bruce Coslet, and John Morello. The Pacifi c swim team could have been more rightly called the DU swim team. Squad members included Steve Cohee, Bill Breeden, Rex Hoover, Steve Donahue, Ron Sabrow, John Scherer, Mike Thompson, and Rob Wooten. Bob Janis and Denis Nugent both made the NCAA finals in Indiana. The Pacific base bailers were covered with DU men, which included Russ Antracoli, Bob Buck, Bob Carruesco, Steve Bach, and Jerry Burke. Carruesco led the team in almost every offensive department, as well as breaking records in the number of stolen bases and runs scored. Steve l'vIac Ilwraith and Lagelle Jeter finished fifth and sixth respectively in this year's golf championships. Campus politics was another very active field of endeavor for the DU's. Dave McMicken was sophomore class president, and in the spring he was elected vice pl'esident of the student body. In the senior class, Doug Hamilton was president and Rich Usinger DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

was vice president. Steve Guy a nd John Gillan were junior class officers, while Bill Breeden acted as sophomore vice president. Jerry Cooke enjoyed a su ccessfu I term as IFC president with ample assistance from house representatives Ron l'vlurov and Jim Dodds. Bill Knibbs was elected to serve as the new IFC representative (senator) to the student body senate. Spring rush was again a highly successful undertaking, tbanks to the direction of rush chairman Dave McMicken and his assistant Ron Champion. For the third successive semester DU took the largest IFC pledge class, which consisted of twenty-five outstanding young men. Among the top rushers were Paul Willis, Bob Buck and Bill Armstrong. The social highlight of the semester was this year 's Spring Formal held in the midst of the scenic Santa Cruz Mountains in the beautiful Brookdale Lodge. Thanks to the work of Darryl Champion, all the brothers and their dates had a wonderful time. Other outstanding social events included the Casino Party, the Toga Party, and the weekend trips to Knight's Ferry. The Little Sister program which started in the fall was enriched wi th the addition of five new members. Selected to be our new little sisters were: Missy Scheid, Marilyn Stowell, Debbie Dalhsrud, Joy Handwerker, and Mollie MacIntyre. These girls along with the miginal twenty young ladies helped to add a measure of charm and beauty to all our events. Under the leadership of Ron Murov our intramural program had another successful semester. Our A, B, and C basketball teams all finished high in the standings. Hillard Witt was the A-League leading scorer, while Dave Schrader won the same honor for the B-League. Fine perfmmances by Bob Jones , Bill Knibbs, and Steve Cohee resulted in winning' the "A" volleyball champi-

onship . DU also won in track with some fine work from Darryl Champion, Vadja Kolomba tovic, Bill Breeden, and Andy Lapkin. For the third consecutive year our house won the President's Trophy for highest g.p .a. among the men's living groups. House members on the Dean's List were Mick Anderson, Bill Clapper ton , Melvin de la Motte, Robert Jones, Robert Lindemann, Donald Parsons, Mike Rinaldi, Tracy Trotter, Mark Okuda, and Bob Christiansen. Next year our chapter will be led by Larry Putman, president; Russ Antracoli, vice president; Steve Cohee, secretary; Don Parsons, treasur· er; and Robert Lindemann , scholarship chairman. Under their leadership our house hopes to expand and therefore, enrich our brotherhood even further. Much of this year's credit must be given to our president this year, John Burke, who united the brotherhood and pro· duced the most successful year in our history. RUSSELL ANTRAcoLl

Penn State The winter term has been a very active and successful one. Early in the term, house officers were elected and these capable men include Tom Jackson , president; Mike Jashinski, vice president; Jack Auker, treasurer; Bill Durkota, secretary; Ken Edwards, corresponding secretary; Terry Yearick, social chairman ; Scott Clewell, caterer; Neil Policelli and 'Vayne Zeiger, rush chairmen; Ray Miller, pledge trainer; Sandy Kime, historian; and Frank Schautner, chaplain. 'Ve have concluded a very successful rush program this term with the acquisition of sixteen new pledges. Gmden Stevenson was chosen as theil' pledge president and they have assumed their pledge re-

sponsibilities with commendable enthusiasm. The social calendar this term has once again outdone itself. vVe have had the pleasure of hosting two sorority formals and putting on our annual Playboy party. His calendar also included mixers with the top sororities on campus and ended with a successful "sweat suit" jammy. W'e are currently vying for three intramural championships. As of this writing, not one DU wrestler has been defeated, and the basketball and bowling teams are in the finals. After this term, we should most certainly have the lead in the race for the trophy given to the overall intramural champs. Much credit should be given to Tom Falcone, the intramural director, for keeping us on the winning track. DU's are also involved in Penn State varsity sports. These participants include Terry Yearick and Doug' Powell, baseball; Jim McGuone, Ken Edwards, and lvlike Jashinski, lacrosse; Sandy Kime , Dale Fritts, Larry Kuhns, Phil Mortenson , Rich 'Walters, Tim Sharp, and Jeff Schwartz, rugby; Mark Long, wrestling; and Tom Jackson, John Ebersole, Vic Surma, Tom Cherry, Jim Sample, football. Academically, we are again striving to maintain our high standards, Bob Ott, our scholal'ship chairman , is predicting that this term's overall average could be one of the highest ever. Another point of interest is that this year the Province IV Conference Officers Seminar was held here at Penn State. The conference was attended by delegations from Bucknell, Carnegie, Swarthmore, Lehigh, and the Delaware colony. Overall, the conference was run very well and should have been the source of many benefits to the delegates in attendance_ The exchange of ideas and information that took place more than proves that DU's are thinking and are creative. This supports the main goal of the conference; that being', to show "Creativity in Problem Solving." Mllm JASHTNSKI

Puulue With the good possibility of returning to campus next fall with a full house, the chapter's attitude is very optimistic. Mothers' Day weekend was a great success with a fine program set up by special events chairman Rick Morphew. The weekend ended on Sunday with the initiation of our spring pledge class of twenty-six men. The u pperclass brothers feel that these new initiates will help the chapter very much in the next few years. 'W ith the help of these and also the older and more experienced brothers, we plan to review all of our present programs with the hope of being' able to oITer even more as a fraternity.

vVi th the recen t events on our campus and on campuses all over the country, it is necessary for all organiza tions such as these to examine themselves and adapt or even get rid of old policies and programs to better fit the needs of today's student. Two of the programs that will be under the most intensive study are the rush and pledge programs. Committees have been organized, and, with the help of DU International, we hope to come up with the answers to some of our problems that will be acceptable to the International I' ratemity, the University, and our chapter. Our Homecoming progTam of last fall was declared a success by both undergrads and alumni alike, Since those who attended liked the weekend so well, and there We1'e many people who were not able to attend, we are in the process of planning another program similar to last year's to take place on Homecoming 'W eekend, October 25, Ag'ain we will attempt to get tickets for those who want to go to the game. Ticket orders and a check for $6,00 per ticket may be sent to: Greg Forszt, ]010 David Ross Road, West Lafayette, Indiana 47906, May I sugg-est that you get your ticket orders in early next fall, and we hope to see as man)' of you there as possible.

Ripon The Ripon chapter started a strong spring semester with the addition of twelve nell' pledges. The pledge class is very diversified and involved in extracurricular activities and also shows strong' leadership potential. vVe are again well represented in spring varsity sports with Bob Wu, Sandy Lee, and John Shethar on the tennis team; Jim Beisner on the baseball team; and Ray Robinson , Steve Loeffelholz, and Captain Bill Grieb on the track squad. In 1M's we are a very strong contender in baseball while tying for second in basketball. Our academic standing was second on campus with a 2.66 last semester and the brothers are all working hard to get first-place honors this semester. In the college awanls convocation three brothers were awarded for their scholastic achievements; John Ricciardi was elected to the biolog-y honorary society; Art Waske)' received a psycholog-y award; and Tim Byers, a junior, received a scholarship for medical school which he will attend next year. During the annual vVinter Carnival the DU's made a clean sweep, capturing all four trophies. The brothers won the skiing, snow sculpture, olympics, and the over-all award. The house has started a new tradition by selecting- a DU Dove. She is Jennifer Luhrs who hails from St.

Paul, Minnesota. A picture will be in the next QUARTERLY. Another possible tradition DU has started is having a retreat at the Baptist Assembly. This spring we had a day-long retreat on the subject of pledge training- and scholarship. It proved very helpful in formulating our goals for next year. 'Ve plan to have another retreat in the fall concerning our rush program. 'With Rick Scott at the helm we are having a great social semester and are looking forward to the spring party_ '~T e are also attempting to strengthen our alumni support through more newsletters and the upcoming tenth anniversary celebration in the fall during Homecoming weekend , 'Ve hope to see many alumni at this function.

Rochester Delta Upsilon at the University of Rochester went a long way toward laying the groundwork for revitalization in a year of uncertainty for fraternities. The prospect of University control has seriously diminished as a result of IFC solidarity, and the level-headed approach of the various alumni associations to impending taxation. DU's on campus gained favor again on the chapter this year. Dave McKeehan won the state championship in the one-meter dive to cap a sensational season. Three-letter man Dave Cleveland (tennis, squash, and soccer) headed an impressive year for sophomores. vVillie Chambers and Rich Troise shone in track, as did "Rage" Beils and Kip Souza in wrestling, Ken Conrad attained varsity status in g-olf this spring, and brothers Morgan Hendry and Jack Dornan featured in lacrosse, as did Randall Breeckner in rugby. Fall will find Brother Greg Conrad back calling the signals for varsity football, along' with DU teammates Tom Zagata and Kevin Moore, House-wide, Delta Upsilon has made a determined g-rab for the over-all intramural trophy-with the resul ts still in the balance at this time. Second semester broug-ht pledg-e "Help 'Veek," and with it a needed facelift for the physical plant, and the perfect stag-e for the spring's social doings. The "Luau" again eclipsed any other fraternity pa,r ty at the U of R for sheer extravagance and wanton good times. The alumni banquet was considered a Sllccess by those who attended, although the undergraduate brothers were somewhat disappointed by the scanty alumni attendance. RANDALL BREECK N ER

ed the semester by securing the larg'est pledge class of all sixteen 011campus fraternities. i~ith nineteen bids extended and nineteen accepted, our membership was increased to seven ty-one. These members were united into a productive group under the leadership of Lee Marshall, president; Steve MOlTe, vice president; Tom Paterson, secretary; John Fitch, treasurer; Rick Galyen, chapter relations; Bernie Nydam, alumni relations; John Baron, social chairman; Bruce Howard, pledge counselor; Neil Fieri, athletics chairman; Larry Cartwright, scholarship chairman; Don Lindsay, rush chairman; and Dave Franklin, chaplain. Lee Marshall was elected IFC secretary and also tapped to membership in Oceotol, an honorary on-campus organization. Lynn Gates, a member of our Little Sisters of the Seven Stars, was chosen as JVIis~ Del Stul for the 1969 San Diego State Annual. Scholastically we have continued to improve. vVe ranked eighth out of the sixteen fraternities on campus. The active chapter compiled an over-all grade-point avnage of 2.36 and the pledges were not far behind with a 2.33, but higher scholastic goals have been set for the future. To achieve this goal we have initia ted a strong scholastic program which includes a plaque for the highest g.p.a., study files, and a list of comments on various professors. This year the plaque was won by Hany i~eiss with a 4.0 average. Also our Cultural Arts Board, which brings in g'uest speakers from the school and the community, has continued to be a great success under the leadership of John vVeldon. i~ith every man doing his share, Delta Upsilon has truly become one

of the top fraternities on this campus. After capturing the Red League Sports Banner last year, we were moved to the higher i 'Vhite League. Once again we succeeded in capturing our league's banner. This rapid advancement to the highest league, the Black League, has never been accomplished by any other fraternity at San Diego State. In fall sports Delta Upsilon captured a first in handball and wrestling, and a third in all-fraternity surfing. In spring sports we proved to be even stronger. By taking first places in volleyball, swimming, track, baseball and golf, we succeeded in capturing top honors in fall-Spring sports. Our track efforts deserve special mention because we set a new IFC team recol'd by scoring 105 points, which doubled the score of our nearest opponent. Delta Upsilon is also well represented in intercollegiate sports with Mike Judd, a back on the rugby team; Bill Plemons, a member of the soccer team; and Fred Becker, assistant swimming and water polo coach. Members of the swimming' and water polo teams include Bob Friend, John Bason, Randy Coutts, Bob Kegley, Ernie Klevesal, and Gary Crulll. Randy Coutts represented the San Diego State swimming team at the NCAA swimming championships, at Indiana University. DU athlete-of-the-year' honors go to Mike Mezin. To go along with the great advancemen ts in our status we have greatly improved the appearance of the house. Our fall 1968 pledge class built an additional stlidy room and a bar on the back of the house. Also the entire house was refurbished with carpeting, woodwork, and paint th roughou t.

Simpson As we draw to the close of another year at Simpson College, we can look back on one of the greatest years in the history of Delta Upsilon on this campus. V,re had probably the best fall rush ever when we pledged twentyone men and we had an exceptional second semester rush, pledging eleven. All of these men have already started to contribute to the house, which next year will consist of mainly juniors and sophomores. i 'Ve had two very fine administrations this year, headed by Don Blanchard from i 'Vaterloo, Iowa, first semester and Ted Rice from Yuma, Arizona, second semester. Our new president, Jim Hicks from Red Oak, Iowa, should continue the trend. In athletics DU was again well represented. In cross-country Simpson's number one man was vVin Johnson. In football Little All-American Jim Henderson from Montreal, Canada, led Simpson to one of its finest seasons ever. Jim will probably be playing Canadian professional football next fall. In basketball Rod Ritenour was again one of the confel'ence leaders in scoring' and rebounding. After the season was over, Rod played in the senior all-star game against the seniors from Drake, Iowa, and Iowa State. In track i 'Ves Sir was a consistent winner in the 100- and the 220-yard dashes, winning the 100 in the conference meet. In tennis, three of the top seven players were DU's. In gulf, Bill O'Connor again was the number one man. In baseball two of the nine starters were DU's . Jim Hicks and Bill O'Connor were chosen for T-Vho's nl/1O in American Universities and Colleges. In intramural athletics, with just softball remaining', we are tied for first in the quest for the Intramural Cup. Socially we had four very enjoyable parties with our formal capping off the year.

The spring semester at -Swarthmore found DU's hard at work and, as usual, involved in activities in every comer of the cam pus. Social activities included trips to the Flyers and Phillies games, television and g'ame nights at the house, and the usual rash of parties, notably the DU '69 party and the Yard-and-aHalf party at the house of Jim Kimmel. Social chairmen Brad Lemke and John Goldman put on an interesting program in a busy semester. DU's were prominent in all divisions of Swarthmore sports. DU's dominated the varsity and JV basket-

151


ball teams; Brad Lemke co-captained the swimming team, Taylor Cope and Buck Buchanan starred as firststring lacrosse mid fielders, Dick Kamen cap tained the baseball team, and DU's played top positions on the tennis and track teams_ In spite of the profusion of DU's in varsity sports, other DU's still walked off with the IFC basketball championship for the fourth year in a row. The DU house received several important improvements this semester. Led by star strawboss Dick Kamen, the Newitt received an entire and much-needed remodeling. The pledge project this year was a refurbishing of the kitchen, which the pledges did beautifully, largely through the organizing efforts and hard work of Dave Kalkstein. A new sound system rounded out the year's great improvements to the house. The brothers of DU did well in the field of academics, notably Rog'er Wood, a "Woodrow 'Wilson Fellowship winner, who is headed for Oxford next year. Hal-dworking' Randy Larrimore is headed for Harvard Business School, and Taylor Cope will take a short hop down the tracks to Penn Medical School. Other brothers are headed for the Peace Corps, work, service or grad school. Speaking of the diffusion of liberal culture, Joe Boches deserves a special note. Chapter Parliamentarian Boches provided valuable consultation on matters of parliamentary procedure, and his frequent guest appearances with weekly news analysis and phlights of phantasy diffused liberal culture in a manner unequalled here at Swarthmore. But his grea test achievemen t lies in the St. Valentine's (Ballantine's) Day Massacre. Early on the morning of February 14, Boches and five desperate cohorts arose at 5:00 a.m. In the 12° chill they boarded their cars and sped silently to Philadelphia, l'eturning swiftly with 375 carnations which they had ordered. Through great skUlduggery, they gained entrance to the women's dormitories, and in the predawn half-light deposited a carnation bedecked with blue and gold l'ibbon on the door of evel'Y girl's room; following a swift and silent departure, the desperadoes regrouped in the Dining' Hall for a celebration breakfast. It was a coup which has yet to be equalled on the Swarthmore Campus.

new imag'e we are taking on. High averages, great diversification, and spirit best describe their performance. The house ma intained its hig'h scholastic average by moving into the top ten of the thirty-one fraternities on campus with a cumulative 2.43 rating. This included ten brothers who made Dean's List. Bill Hettig was pledge master and many thanks go to him for his hard work and plans to make the pledge program more informative and constructive. Socially it was the same good time but with a new twist. One of our innovations was an instant party following the closing of the University due to blizzard conditions last February . Another was an unforgettable evening party at a local discotheque. The year was topped off by a successful spring weekend. On campus three brothers, Charles Zion, Jeff Davis, and Frank Hamblen, were among eight from the senior class chosen for senior honoraries. Two brothers, Clint Clemens and Chris Marcucci, made Orange Key, the junior men's honorary. Five of our pledges are members of Goon Squad, a orientation committee for incoming freshmen this fall. Two pledges, Herb vonSchilling and Les Artinger, were elected officers of the freshman class_ In sports All-Amel'ican Jeff Davis led the varsity lacrosse team to an outstanding season and placed the Syracuse team near the best in the nation. Other brothers on the varsity were John Nelson, Dick George, Frank Pfau, Steve Sullivan, and Rick Travers. Bob Kouwe was second leading scorer for varsity basketball and number one golfer. Bob Clary was leading hitter for baseball and Pete Frank held down the number foul' position on varsity tennis. House elections selected Rami Khouri , p.r esident; Sam Hemingway, vice president; Dennis Thorn, recording secretary; Judd Berg, corresponding secretary; Chris Marcucci, social chairman; and Frank Rosenberg, treasurer. The brothers are presently working on improving alumni relations and our financial status. Plans for the fall include a Homecoming weekend for alumni which we hope will draw many old DU's back to the campus for the Centennial celebrations and a dinner-dance for alumni and wives.

Our chapter ended what has to be one of its most interesting years and looks forward to September when Syracuse University celebrates its Centennial and welcomes a new chancellor, John Corbally, who our brothers at Ohio State should know quite well. In our chapter activities a successful pledge program, a good DU weekend, campus politics, and sports filled our spring semester. Our new pledges characterized the

The desire for achievement among Technology DU's this term has reached a new high level. This was evidenced by the intensity of effort in all our activities. Scholastically, the house ranked high among the living groups on campus with a cumulative average of 4.0 out of 5.0. Leading the effort were Harry Drab and Lyle Groome with straight A's, giving them a 5.0/5.0.

DU's moved into several leadership positions on campus this year. Walt Price was elected president of the Athletic Association and Ben Wilson is now president of the Varsity Club. Travis Jackson was elected treasurer of our IFC. Three DU's have been awarded the highest athletic honor that MIT can bestow-the Straight T. Dave McComb won it for being the lowpoint skipper in the New England dinghy championships, and for having an outstanding season record_ The other two DU recipients were members of the varsity lightweight crew. The lightweights culminated their season by placing second in the New England sprints. Bruce Anderson, the captain, and Dave Lee will be going to compete internationally at the Henley Regatta in England. Again this year, DU has provided several varsity captains: Bruce Anderson (lightweight crew), Bob Busby (soccer), Carl Everett (soccer), and Ben ''''ilson (cross-country, track). Dave McComb and Pete Nesbeda were commodore and vice commodore of the MIT Nautical Association. Four freshmen were selected as team captains: Steve Gass (basketball), Pete Sanders (swimming), John Kavazanjian (soccer), and Rik Eskin (soccer). We'll probably have another Freshman-Athlete-ofthe Year in Pete Sanders. In recognition of our civic responsibility, we organized a clean-up of the street behind the chapter house, and participated in the IFC Back Bay clean-up. We realize the importance of good community relations. Our social life was highlighted by our annual toga party, complete with Tom Jones style banquet. Other notable events were our spring weekend, and a Cape Cod party. Technology DU's had a serious nature in their social outlook this term. The social character of the house was strongly affected by the number of brothers who were pinned . There were thirteen of the total brotherhood of forty -three who were pinned. Five of these will be married this summer. The great majority of the seniors will be continuing their schooling next year. Out of eleven, five will be going to MIT grad school, and another fOllr will be in five-year programs, working for double degrees.

Tennessee On the weekend of May 16-17, the Alpha Delta Upsilon colony was installed as the Tennessee chapter of Delta Upsilon. A total of fifty brothers was installed, including thirtynine undergraduates, nine faculty members, and two alumni. Considerable energy was spent in planning this event, the most significant in our chapter's history _ The ceremonies took place at various locales, including a chapel, the University Center, and the colony hOllse.

and formal dance concluded the activities. Preparing for our installation as the eighty·seventh active chapter of Delta Upsilon, our colony ratified its by-laws on March 31. The by· laws created six elective offices, which were filled by elections on April 7. Elected were: Noel Freesh, president; Mike Knies, vice president; Pat McNabb, secretary; Jack Goodwin, treasurer; Chuck Conley, chapter relations secretary; Rich Pyburn, member-at-Iarge. The Alpha Delta Upsilon colony at UT has always involved itself in outside activities and service projects; as a chapter it will continue to do so. During the UT basketball season, we entered a spirit contest, sponsored by a local bookstore, that was the varsity basketball team. Our project was a petition signed by over 8,000 students indicating their loyalty. This list was presented to the basketball team captain, Bill Justus, and coach, Ray Mears, at the Vanderbilt game. For our efforts we finished in first place, and were awarded a three-foot trophy. Last quarter, the colony entered a group in All-Sing, a singing contest open to any recognized student organization. Although not doing as well as they would have liked, our singers did indicate they would be ready for next year. More recently, we participated in the UT College Bowl, modeled after the television program. In the way of community service, we entered a candidate in the Beauty-and·the-Beast con test. This contest raised money for the East Tennessee Children's DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

Hospital. Votes, at a penny a vote, were cast for the prettiest girl and ugliest man on campus. Through road blocks and other projects the brothers sought contributions. Our pretty girl, Joan Sartain (one of our Little Sisters), finished second, ahead of any other fraternity candidate_ vVe have a very active Little Sister organization that was l'ecently strengthened by the addition of sixteen more of UT's most beautiful women. The Little Sisters' most impOl·tant function is to add a touch of femininity to the house. Recently, they challenged the brothers to a softball game and handily defeated us, as the brothers somehow lost all coordination. To promote interaction among Greeks, we continued our losing streak with female teams, losing another softball game to Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority. We also took part in Greek vVeek, a carnival sponsored by all fraternities for the student body. Always concerned with scholarship, the chapter has several programs designed to continually promote it. We have a tutoring program, an ever-growing test file, and a scholarship incentive contest. Our cultural program has remained active. Last quarter we invited the various candidates for the Student Government Association presidency to speak at the house. The chapter also sponsored a lecture by Dr. Paul Spray, from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, at the University Center. Dr. Spray, who has traveled to Biafra, Jordan, and South Vietnam, presen ted slides and spoke on the medical problems of these coun tries.

With the close of another year at the University of Texas, the men of Delta Upsilon are once again able to reflect back upon a very sllccessful spring semester. Getting things off to a fine start, DU pledged five men this spring. They were Randy Penny, Jim Keller, Steve Siptak, Mark Gresham, and Steve Chase. In campus politics, DU supported Jerry Hunnicutt in a fine campaign for vice president of the student body. In charge of his campaign were Jay Bobbit and Sam Hass. Intramurals proved to be a great success for the chapter, with Chris Myers winning the wrestling championship in his weight division. Overall, DU placed in the top ten in intramurals. The chapter is proud of Ralph Miller, who was awarded the Army ROTC Legion of Valor award. Brother Miller has also been chosen as one of the University's twentynine au tstanding students and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Dean Evans has been recognized as one of the top ten studen Is in the College of Business, and was initiated into Beta Gamma Sigma. Frank Grossman was elected vice president of Posse, a freshman-sophomore honorary service organization. The chapter house was the site of much activity during the semester. The highlight of social events took place during Round-Up Weekend with Susan Northrup being presented as the fraternity sweetheart. The chapter's annual Parents' W'eekend brought in the families of brothers from all over the country and helped to instill in them much of the pride which the men of DU feel towal'd their Fraternity. In charge of this memorable occasion was Robert Northway. In the realm of alumni relations, the San Antonio Delta Upsilon alumni are forming a club and are making plans to help the Texas chapter with summer rush. Bill Ellis and Paul Sneed have been instrumental in getting the club started. They are organizing a 1'llsh barbeque to be held in San Antonio in August. On Saturday, May 3, the Texas chapter was present for the installation of the Arlington chapter of Delta Upsilon. In the past, colony and chapter have worked together during rush and have held joint social affairs. With Arlington's installation there should be an even greater

153


amount of co-operation between these two organizations in the future. In accordance with the rites of spring, participation in serenades and pinning ceremonies played a great part in the chapter's activities this semester. For next year D U has already planned social events with Pi Beta Phi, Kappa Alpha Theta, Zeta Tau Alpha, and other sororities. Election of officers for next fall have been held, with the following results: Jay Bobbit, president; Sam Hass, vice president; Whitey Elder, secretary; and Jim Hummel, chapter l·elations. The treasurer for next year will be Bob Penny. A termination of this semester's events took place the weekend of May 10. At this time some thirty high school and college rushees converged on the DU house. The effectiveness of the chapter's activities was marked by the pledging of two men, Cliff Hill and John Dunlap, for next fall's pledge class. Much of the credi t for this success goes to rush chairman Bill Elliott and his assistant, Bob Thurman. During the summer, two rush weekends will be held in Austin on July 28 and August 9. Additional parties will be held in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi. A final word should be said about one of the chapter's newer, but probably most hardworking, additions, the housemother, Mrs. Mildred Newsom. Throughout the year she has taken every opportunity to represent and assist the chapter with dignity and sincere enthusiasm, and has gained the profound admiration of both brothers and alumni. All are looking forward to working with her next year. ROBERT

The chapter has involved itself in a number of projects with the city and civic organizations in the community. A great deal of time was donated to the city in a park development project. Many hours were devoted to a city clean-up and code enforcement project sponsored by the Arlington Betterment Association. The chapter co-sponsored with the Arlington Youth Council a program of special instruction for slow students in area schools. We again donated our service to the annual drive of the American Cancer Society. Also, we recently spent time on a clean-up project for the YMCA. The chapter has also assumed a much larger part in campus activities, participating either as a chapter, or as individuals. During the year we participated in every activity available to us. Our involvement and concern both in the community and on campus has consistently brought praise from the University president and the adnlinistration. Despite our ever-increasing schedule of activities, the chapter has achieved a notable increase in grade point average. Our fall pledge class had the highest average of any pledge class on campus. The past year has also seen a number of achievements of individuals in our brotherhood. Roger Ray, Bob Davis, and Layne Bradley received awards for high scholastic achievement. Randy Hamilton was elected vice president of the Intel'fraternity Council and was selected for membership in the National Order of Omega, an organization of outstanding Greeks. The Charter and the achievements of the past year have opened the doors for even greater involvement and achievement. The future promises even greater development. TOM DONALDSON

T exas-A ?'Zington The 1968-69 school year has seen the dawn of a new era for Delta Upsilon at the University of Texas at Arlington. With our installation as a chapter of Delta Upsilon on May 3, 1969, Sigma Phi Beta Fraternity became history, and the Arlington chapter of Delta Upsilon became a reality. However, it is not the charter itself, but the development that made it possible that bears the gTeatest significance. The chapter has advanced significantly in membership and achievement in the last year. We have more than doubled our size from a membership of twenty-five men in September, 1968. Our achievements in the past year have surpassed those of all our previous history. As the quality of our chapter has developed, so has our reputation in every aspect of exposure of the college fraternity. '~7e have achieved a position of greater influence with the community, the student body, and the administl·ation.

Tufts The recent ROTC controversy that has confronted many college .campuses throughout the country confronted Tufts also and brought about some interesting developments within the brotherhood of DU. While the majority of the house was apparently in favor of maintaining ROTC on campus, a diversification of views was evident. DU was successful in illuminating both liberal and conservative views in genuinely interested, though spirited, late-night discussions, yet the spirit of brotherhood suffered only when individuals let that spirit suffer. DU has always maintained the spirit of individual expression within a fraternal atmosphere. It has encouraged diversification. The success with which DU handled a subject that is by nature a controversial one leaves much room for the continuing growth of the optimism and a new "raison d'etre" for the fraternal system. DU also maintained its dominance

of the athletic scene at Tufts, both on the collegiate and interfraternity levels. Jim Eacott and John Bentley were elected co-captains of the lacrosse team, and John Leggatt was selected as golf captain. Jeff Rossman and Paul Fitzpatrick started on the baseball team that went on a highly successful southern trip to Mexico City and Acapulco. The house softball team, with five of the starting' football team playing, lost in the finals of the All-College tournament, but DU is assured of maintaining its supremacy in the All-College track meet. Led by Jon Slevin and with dashmen John Gulesian, Mickey Cartin, and Peter Pascuicco, DU has at least the fastest house on campus. The brotherhood was successful in initiating a program for underprivileged kids in the area to use the facilities of the school on week nights. Leo Heffernan, a Somerville resident was the major proponent of the program. Greg Ross was selected outstanding senior on campus, and Chris Parker has been selected for an important administrative post with the Vista volunteers. Gary Sullivan and Greg Higgins easily won a University bridge tournament, with some remar ka bl y brillian t play. Overall, DU is becoming socially conscious and intellectually curious, yet has an abundance of athletes. Starting in the fall, a lecture series is to be initiated, open to the University, with such timely subjects as sex on campus and the problem of drug traffic. There is even a possibility that DU will sponsor a lecture in which the governor of the state will be the main speaker. While DU is happy with its progress under the leadership of President Jim Grant, it looks forward to even better things in the future.

Union Although our chapter has accomplished a great deal during the past year, we feel that a true picture of how the house is working is not clearly conveyed by merely citing a list of accomplishments and achievements. The chapter is more accurately represented by the actual feelings and relations between the brothers. There is never complete harmony. A chapter without dissension would suggest a house in which everyone thinks in the exact same mannerand this is certainly unhealthy. Without disagreement there can be no progress. We build unity by working to solve our disagreements. By bringing attention to our weak points as well as our strong points, it is much easier to accept and understand the house and each brother without having to make any pretensions. The feelings in the house are very important in understanding the brotherhood and the role the chap-

ter plays in campus affairs. Perhaps the feelings in our house are best expressed in this piece of free verse. Silent conversation across a halffounded precipice, one balancing-the other oblivious, minds occasionally I'ellecting euphoric understanding, sporadically vomiting discord, thoughts not requiring diagnosis, but soon shattered when the chasm lights in one mind, and the unsuspecting search for the aqueous humor of thoughts. Despotic thoughts, words, phrases, reflecting the exalted intellectual experience, .. suffocating feeling. . gasping for sensa tion. Think, analyze, interpret, live, and grow gradually experience what can be felt and known. No longer being the samebut so what. E. W. VAN WOERT

The Virginia chapter has experienced a most fulfilling spring semester. Our rush chairman, Doug Bowles, has done an admirable job in second semester rush, and the cha pter presently boasts seventeen pledges. Plans are being made for the compilation of materials for a rush booklet to be used in formal rush next year. This, we are confident, will be of invaluable aid in attracting a large number of good men to the chapter. In the field of scholarship, the Virginia chapter has maintained its excellence of the previous semester by placing over 30 per cent of the brotherhood on the Dean's List. Scholarship chairman, Jim Ralston, has added a new dimension to the scholastic program with the introduction of a Thursday evening "culture series" where a member of the academic community is invited to dinner and then asked to give a brief talk on an issue of contemporary concern. This series has so far proved extremely successful, and we hope to continue it next year. Once again, for the thhd consecutive year, the chapter has achieved 100 per cent participation in the University Blood Drive. In other areas of community service, we have participated in the annual carnival at the Children's Rehabilitation Center, the door-to-door solicitation for the Cancer Drive, the donation of books to a University-sponsored book drive for underprivileged children, and the purchase of tickets in order that fifteen needy children migh t attend the circus. In the area of athletics, we have continued to improve, this year I'eaching the finals in fraternity intramural softball. Awards which the chapter gives each year for excellence include the Outstanding DU Award DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY •

and the D.K. Summer Award. This year the Sumner Award went to Dave FaggeI't, and the Outstanding DU Award went, for the first time, to an alumnus, Byron Sample, our alumni pI'esident. Mrs. Wilkins, our weekend party "Chaperone," was voted by the brotherhood to receive a sister pin for her competent and persistent attention to the welfare and safety of the brothers and their dates during party weekends. The pin will be awarded to her next year. KEN KING

Washington State Every facet in the omnibus of college life, from athletics to academics, finds Washington State DU's striving for excellence. Our goal is the attainment of being foremost not in one isolated activity, but in all college aspects. Academically, our efforts of fall semester, with the initiation of midsemester scholarship week, left us second on campus. Not satisfied with being only almost perfect, the scholarship week was repeated in the spring semester, and the improved freshman mid-semester grades are reflecting the enthusiasm they have for attaining the number one spot. Spring came late to Eastern Washington, but it found DU's initiated into honorary societies Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Tau, Phi Tau Iota, and Scabbard and Blade. Tau Beta Pi was enhanced by the spring election of Tim Sonnichsen to the presidency. Tluee of our freshmen were initiated into the freshman scholastic honorary Phi Eta Sigma: Paul Hays, CI'aig Esvelt, and Gary Colley. The membership was led by four-point scores by Dean Crothers, Brian HOCUIll, lVIike Rowswell, and Chuck Knoeber. Chuck Knoebel', besides his academic achievements, excelled as our

new president. His dynamic new administration has increased the chapter's momentum. The other officers include Ed Shaw, vice president; Mike Shanks, secretary; Tim Copeland, treasurer; and Tom Logsdon, chapter relations. Rush is being handled hy Denny Knudsen who has six new pledges to his credit: Steve Ardvidsen, Gary Colley, Mike Clark, Bob Shelby, Mel Smith, and transferring from the University of Washington and the DU chapter there, Jack Burns. Smith, another DU contribution to Washington State athletiCS, is expected to join the Cougar basketball team next winter. In in'tI'amurals, the chapter has a strong grasp on third place, while standing in close contention for first. League championship basketball and bowling teams, and third-place finishes in weight lifting and swimming all helped keep us by the top. With strong DU teams being fielded in golf, track, and softball, we hope for a top finish this year. Socially, major events taking up our weekends were the ''''inter Formal, and the not-so-formal Pajama Dance and DU Roundup. The efforts of Tom Logsdon enabled us to procure two computer exchanges with Gamma Phi Beta and Alpha Gamma Delta sororities. Logsdon, a math major, programmed the computer to match most compatible elates by the answers on a questionnaire each person completed. Parents' ''''eekend found the DU's and Kappa Alpha Theta's taking high honors in the mixed division for the Spur Songfest. The DU members of Intercollegiate Knights nearly exclusively hosted the IK National Convention, which resulted in Mike Buehler being elected national president. Our membership is marked by gains and losses for the year. Initiates were Tom Bartholet, John Hoff-

Washington and Lee Despite serious setbacks that the chapter suffered this winter, the individual members have continued to maintain active participation in campus activities. Bob Giammittorio led an active spring bringing the W & L Young Democrat chapter into line in support of gubernatorial candidate Henry Howell. Louis Coleman, as vice president of the Liberal Arts College, is working on the plans for the pre-graduation festivities. As prose editor of The Ariel, a student literary magazine, Kirk Woodward joins Reeve Kelsey, Lawrence McConnell, and Mac Woodward of the Ring-tum Phi in the student publications world. Chapter president Reeve Kelsey was recently elected to the IFC Judicial Board as senior justice, and Lawrence McConnell was unanimously chosen for the job of IFC rush book editor. John Motsinger, president of the Political Science Club of Washington and Lee, was one of the major backers of a model OAS held here earlier this spring and has participated in model UN's and OAS's at several neighboring colleges. Steve Waldron, was named one of the dance-set vice presiden ts of the recent Spring Weekend. The chapter continues to maintain its excellent scholastic standing, coming in fourth au t of all the eighteen fraternities on campus. In the intramural athletic competitions, we were able to capture the wrestling championship to bolster our standings in the 1M competition . .. LoUIS COLEMAN

Western Michigan The men of Delta Upsilon kept a firm hold on their high standing qn campus created by previous and present members. President George Malacos took over as head man with assistance from his executive board including James O'Donnell, treasurer; vice presidents Bob Drury (social); Randy Erskine (membership); Kelly Noel (athletics); John Schueler (public relations); and secretary, Joe Kaiser. Dave Perry instilled the fraternity ideals in the pledges of the semester as pledge master. All of these men worked toward a smooth running chapter and did a fine job. Thirty disadvantaged children en-

joyed fun and games this spring at the municipal park with men from the chapter as hosts. John Schueler's idea for community aid was a good one; surely this function will be established as a tradition in the future . Not lacking in the academic aspect of college, DU's rated fourth among fraternities in scholarship, thanks to George's reminders each week. Perhaps something to do with that was the new outlook evident in Dave Perry's pledge programs, including a more mature and constructive attitude than seen elsewhere on campus. W'e came a step closer to the alumni with Jim O'Donnell's alumni golf outing which was enjoyed by all who attended. Next year's outing should even be bigger and better. Relations with the older generation also includes parents. Bob Drury made a hit with the moms and dads of the chapter with his well-organized and enjoyable activities on Parents' Day. Delta Upsilon's Variety Night was one of the greatest successes ever, featuring various types of entertainmen t of college interest. The athletic superiority of DU at Western was demonstrated and rewarded. Kelly Noel wouldn't let up on the brothers this year as he built on points earned when Dave Perry was in charge of athletics and led the brothers to the Interfraternity, AllCampus Intramural, and Fraternity League trophies, a feat rarely accomplished by any single organization, Greek or otherwise. The overall social program kept the brothers happy and excited under the ingenious ideas of Bob Drury. The climax of the calendar was a well-planned weekend at the Sheridan in Chicago. Again we thank George Malacos and his executive council for an excellen t year, and look forward to equal success under President Dave Perry, with his vice presidents Chuck Gilbert and Gary Stoner (social); Randy Erskine (membership); Jerry Fant (athletics); Jim O'Donnell (alumni relations); Dave Peterson (public relations); and Rick Dirksen, neasurer; and Mark Christman, secretary.

Western Ontario The spring semester, although it is the last half of the academic year and most students are preparing for their final exams, was a very active one for the DU's. A fund-raising campaign got into action and is progressing well and will be continued in the academic year beginning in September, 1969. A spring rush was well handled by rush chairman Tom 'Wiley and seven new brothers were welcomed into Delta Upsilon membership. The members of this pledge class are Don Chambers, Bob Forbes, B.rian Rike-

Iy, Herb Stevens, Bob Snyder, John Moore, and Mark Heffernan. On the weekend of February 14, the London chapter was conference host for Province VII. Visitors came from as far away as Kentucky to attend this conference which prover! to be a great success, not only in aiding the p,r ogress of chapters themselves but also from the social aspect as the American visitors displayed their charms to some fine Canadian females. The DU's again assel'ted their superiority in the field of athletics this yeaI' as they won the intel'fraternity sports trophy for the second year in a

WesteTn ReSeTVe This spring has been a busy one at the Western Reserve chapter. One of the highlights of the season was the chapter dinner given in honor of our chapter advisor, George Baldwin. The brothers found themselves unable to express their full gratitude for his efforts in the past years, bu t a good time was had by all. DU's were active in varsity sports this spring. Chuck Bernner was the varsity wrestling captain. David Abzug pu t in another fine year in baseball. Brothers Soprano and Bard assisted in the coaching efforts this season. Brother Kitson is active in the track team in an effort to stay in shape for the next football season. Congratulations are in order for Brother Coxon who was married to Jo Valenti a few weeks ago. Brothel: Davis is also making plans to change his immediate future, as he will be studying in Europe next semester. This year's seniors celebrated their last days at Case 'V?stern Res~r\'e with an all-out party last week. Many of the seniors seem uncertain of their plans after graduation. The brothers who will be returning to this "sheltered" educational center wish them the best of luck in the coming' years.

Wichita The spring semester of the Wichita chapter finds DU again leading the campus. Although it is natural to have a small spring pledge class, we feel that they possess the high quality that has always been characteristic of Delta Upsilon. Under the direction of Dave Stone and Chris Ward, fourteen pledges were gained in rush. The highlight of rush was a party at the Holiday Inn in January. Intramurals are again one of the Wichita chapter's strongest points, as led by Stan Hunter. Highlighting the year were top honors in football, bowling, and the annual Greek games. DU was represented on the varsity track team by active Tom

In order to expand our effectiveness and usefulness, and to keep pace with the growth and development of ''''ichita State University's housing facilities, we are currently making great strides toward the construction of a new chapter house. Our efforts have been greatly enhanced by the work of house corporation president, Ford Duke; counsellors Gerald Aron and Willard GlascoII'; trustees, Streeter Funk and Bill Bonwell; and arthitect Mike Lackey. "Hippodrome '69," a satirical review of Wichita State with its teachers and policies, was written and directed by Dave Stone and Jon Kincheloe. Titled "DU-Thirty Minutes: A Four-Part Trilogy," or "Thirty minutes of unabridged Delta Up. silon" followed our tradition of pleasing the students rather than the judges. R. D. AMBROSE

Rich was recently honored for pitching the first no-hit game in the history of Wichita State. Politics in the house are led by Steve Joseph who is currently president of the senior class. As individuals, a number of our brothers have earned honors as exemplary students and leaders. Steve Joseph and Mike Allen were recently named to Who's Who in American DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY.

Colleges and Unive1路sities . Brother Allen was also awarded the Distinguished Military Student award, which is the highest cadet honor achievable. Both have been extremely active in student government and campus affairs. April 25 of this year marked the tenth anniversary of the installation of Delta Upsilon on campus. One of the largest groups of men ever to be inducted into Delta Upsilon, fiftyone undergraduates and ninety-eight alumni were initiated.

July 1969

With the 1968-69 school yeal' drawing to a close, the Wisconsin chapter of Delt Upsilon can reflect upon some truly remarkable achievements. With only baseball, tennis, 'soccer, and track left, the chapter has virtually won the Badger Bowl. This award is presented annually to the fraternity totaling the highest combined score for intramural sports among all thirty-three fraternities on campus. We were especially strong this winter, winning four out of the five sports. These victories were in ice hockey, water polo, volleyball , and the combined fraternity swim meet. In the swim meet, Dave Seifert established another record, going 51.7 in the IOO-freestyle. Last year he set the IOO-butterfly record at 57.8. We look strong in the final four sports, and only a small catastrophe will prevent us hom capturing the Bowl. Last semester the brothers participated with Gamma Phi Beta and placed third in Badger Song Fest. Next fall for HomeC<!lluing we have planned to team up with Pi Beta Phi. This event will be held the weekend of October 25, and the Badgers will face Indiana in football at Camp Randall that day. Campus Carnival, an annual charity fund raising event, was held on April 25 and 26 under the excellent leadership of Jim SippI and with the assistance of Alpha Phi sorority. As usual, the DU's were a noticeable standout in the spirit category. Mothers' Day was observed on May II by extending invitations to all parents to visit the house. This social festivity provided an opportunity for the parents to see the chapter house and meet the brothers. This year eighteen men were initi-

During the initiation week, the fall semester class refinished and antiqued the piano, and the spring se路 mester class made a guest room out of the attic, which was formerly a storage room. Earlier this year Jill Myers of Kap路 pa Alpha Theta was selected as DU Sweetheart. At the time she was pinned to and is now engaged to Rico Goedjen . During the spring semester, several enthusiastic brothers took time to visit our chapters at l'vlichigan State and Michigan while following the UVV hockey team. It was a valuable experience to meet our brothers from other schools. President Kahler attended the IFC-Panel Big Ten Conference at Michigan State and returned with nothing but compli路 ments [or our brothers there. We were also privileged this year to have many pledge classes from other schools visit us on walkouts. Among the groups were the pledges from Iowa, Northern Iowa, Iowa State, Minnesota, Oshkosh, lVlichigan State, and Purdue. Our achievements this year have not been fully recognized, however, without a look at our scholastic achievements as a house. One-sixth of the brothers made the Dean's List in the fall semester, with the active chapter achieving a 2.71 overall house average (4.00 = A basis). Top honors went to Mike Clune!, a premed major from Hopkins, Minnesota. Mike earned a 4.0 averag'e

Wisconsin State The spring' semester is now over and everyone is glad to see finals gone. This semester was highlighted by our Installation into Delta U psilon on May 9 and 10. 'We were honored in having Orville Read, international president of Delta Upsilon and VV. A. Butler, executive secretary, in attendance. Also present

were James N. Graham, assistant executive secretary, and John B. Knezovich, field secretary. A special thanks goes to these two for helping our chapter out in its youth as a colony. There are many things we have to learn and will welcome all helpful comments. Elections were held at our first Delta Upsilon meeting. We had nominations two weeks in advance in order to make our decisions. The nell' officers are: Robert Raymond, president; William R. Martin, vicepresident; Ron Taylor, treasurer; Ed Joehnk, secretary; Doug Van De Mark, chapter relations secretal'y; and Jay Clatwmthy, scholarship chairman. Scholastics are also an important part of our life and we hope to have done well this year. It is the opinion of most that the overall grade point of the Fraternity is going up. There are also approximately fifteen members attending summer school. For two of our brothers scholastics are over, due to graduation. "The Graduates" are Brothers Terry Meacham and Jerry Marty. About five more expect to graduate in August. Next year we are going to have two coeds represent us in the big school functions on campus. One of them will compete in the Homecoming activities and the other in our Crystal Caprice Ball. The two coeds are Joyce Abing and Betty Stadele, who is also our sweetheart. Some things we are planning for next semester are a strengthened rush-pledge program, a house overhaul, getting more involved in sports, and being number one on campus. W'e would also like to see members from other chapters stop by and get better acquainted. ' ,Ve are sending representatives to the National Convention in August

Maine Colony The colony has grown to a size of thirty-three members in the last year and we are pushing our summer rush program to increase our membership quickly in the fall. This is the first attempt at a summer rllsh at the U of M, because of campus policy. Scholarship being an important part of our development program, we showed this to be true in our scholastic average, as we were the highest scholastically of the eighteen fratel'l1ities on campus. Including new members, we had an average of 2.60 on a four point scale. This was far above the all-men's average of 2.344 and the all-fraternity average of 2.42. In this first place average the ten brothers on the Dean's List showed that we are able to develop intellectually while establishing this colony. The brothers have been busy throughout the campus and its vari· ous activities. ""Ye have six men on the Student Senate, the president of the Student Action Corps, the chairman of the Young Republicans, and the treasurer of the French Club in the colony, not to m'e ntion active members in the Math Club, the Radio Club, the Russian Club, and the Sophomore Owls. With the help of several Delta Upsilon alumni in the area we are establishing a housing corporation to help us in tb e quest for a house. All is going well in this department and hopefully we will have a house for next fall. Several facul ty m embers who are not DU's are also helping us develop a working brotherhood. Socially we have been quite lucky, for we have been invited to several parties at other fraternities on cam· pus. By attending these functions we have found that brotherhood extends to more than the one's own house, it extends to the whole Greek system. vYe are proud to be affiliated with Delta Upsilon but we are equally proud to be members of the Greek brotherhood. RICHARD FULLER

MaTyland Colony As the first school year ends for the ADU colony at the University of Maryland, the group has managed to stabilize itself and become part of the existing fraternity system. Members are currently active in the IFC rush and integration committees, as well as a variety of other campus or· ganizations. Recent attacks upon the Greek system as being racist have placed ADU at the front of the de· fense Jines. Having been integrated and nondiscriminatory since its esDELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY'

tablishment, the colony can help the other twenty-five fraternities and nineteen sororities on campus in solving their problems. After an exhaustive study of the College Park area for possible hous· ing, the W'ashington, D.C. Alumni CI u b is aiding the colony by forming a housing corporation to continue the search. The twenty·two members have come to realize that only hard work and dedication will enable the colony to grow. The brothers are now plac· ing emphasis upon strengthening their membership and financial reo sources. They have adopted the "Unpledge" idea and will be utiliz· ing its rush possibilities throughout the summer in order to meet a goal of at least forty members by this fall. To improve finances the group is providing manpower for odd jobs in the area. Such projects as lawn care and house painting have reo ceived a favorable response. Despite a continued emphasis up· on scholarship, ADU has held a number of successful social events, including a joint function with the DU chapter from Johns Hopkins. The favorite activity seems to be a "Chicken Festival" bar-b-que at a brother's apartment. The programs will be expanded and more diversi· fied over the summer, including sail· ing on the Chesapeake Bay and spelunking in West Virginia. ALAN COMULADA

MaTquette Colony The new Alpha Delta Upsilon colony at Marquette University has just finished another very active year on campus. The year's activities saw many of the brothers taking part in both university and com· munity functions. Tom Mathei was elected vice pres· ident of Winterfest Weekend, and Dave Lulewicz joined him in representing ADU in the planning of this all-university event. Jack Murphy and Rick Kilby were chosen as co·chairmen on the IFC social and athletic committees respectively. We are also active in the efforts to reo store intracollegiate football on campus with Vin McAvoy, Tom Voell, and Jonah Phillips representing ADU on the club football council. John Conforti was awarded the "Outstanding Senior Award" by the Deans Committee as well as being selected along with Bernie Westphal as a member of the Who's TVho on

the Ame1'ican College Campus. Rick Poulson experienced another fantastic year on the mats as h e again placed first in the Wisconsin AAU wrestling tourney and was also votcd the tournament's outstanding wrestler. He was given a pretty good chance at the NCAA title by the oddsmakers, but gave up this chance to take the lead in this year's Varsity

July 1969

Varieties skit which took first place for the third straight year. All agreed that the long hours spent in running the "Punt, Pass, and Kick" contest for the Ford Foundation, was time well spent. The chapter is eagerly awaiting next year's competition which has become a tradition that is worthwhile and enjoyable. This year's intramural teams, although not as successful as in tbe past, did .r eveal much potential, and promised to regain top honors in all-Greek sports. Of special notice is next year's football team, whose line averages 260 Ibs. of dancing dynamite all the way across. This year's baseball team was rained out frequently and didn't fare as well as pre-season polls had predicted. However, ADU will have all starters returning, as well as a few promising rookies froPl the spring pledge class. This year's social calendar, although marred by the loss of the chapter house, did prove to be successful and a just testimony to the outstanding ingenuity and imagination of this year's social chairmen Jack Murphy and Jim Mahoney. The J. P . Sheridan 4th Annual Invitational Hat Party was again the highlight of the casual social calendar. The formal calendar was capped off by tIle spring dinner dance, held at the plush Astor Hotel. EITorts are being made to secure a chapter house for next semester to help improve the social and academic aspects of ADU. Elections were recently held and the house is looking forward to an exciting year under the new administration. Tom Mathei was re-elected chapter president, and other officers include Jim Mahoney and Charlie Slifka, vice presidents; Paul Wittig, pledge master; Joe Gunta, treasurer; Dick Stangl, social chairman; and Louis Carbon etta, secretary. Many new changes were instituted by last semester's officers, such as mandatory stud y hours for actives as well as pledges, a telephone communication system to meet the problem of the scattered membership due to the loss of the chapter house, a fivedollar fine for missing' business meetings as well as a twenty-five cent fine for speaking out of order. Other changes were the allowing of the new actives to vote for major offices; the initiating of a mandatory interview system for actives and pledges insuring cooperation and brotherhood between the pledge class and active chapter. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the DU chapters at Ripon and Illinois for their encouraging letters. We would also like to thank Bruce Geiss, president of the Northwestern chapter and Mr. Neil Olson, Oregon State '25, for the tremendous help and friendship that they showed us in the last few critical months.
