President's Re ort

Jump In, The Water's fine Perhaps the most

alI-encompassing tag you could hang on Delta Upsilon is that nothing happens in it, except through its volunteers. As the saying goes, they "make it happen ." Save those few men who are paid consultants to our chapters, everything that happens in DU comes from someone giving freely of his time to help others. No one pays us to be brothers . Why do we give our time to each other as undergraduates? Why do loyal alumni take time to steer younger DUs down the right roads? Why do so many DUs find satisfaction in the sometimes thankless tasks of serving as an alumni advisor, an alumni corporation board member, or at some level for the General Fraternity? DUs have always had a cheerful disposition to service and volunteer work of all types. As our chapters teach men about Friendship, Justice, and Character, one tool they use is to urge men to join campus organizations, to toil for worthy community causes, and to do the hard but noble work in society by serving on vital civic boards and commissions. We honor this volunteer spirit in this Quarterly. Take a look at the featured volunteers , and you'll see some fine examples . Of course, our Fraternity can always use more volunteers . Wherever you live, whatever you do, you can find time to help Delta U. It may be as simple as helping a young man polish his resume. You may visit a campus and speak about your career and how college men can enter your field of choice . Recommend a rush prospect, write a letter of recommendation, give to the chapter's annual fund drive,



DELTA UPSILON FRATERNITY North America 's Oldest Non-Secret Fraternity; Founded 1834 The Principles of Delta Upsilon Fraternity

President McQuaid help the alumni chapter find a good contractor, spend a few minutes by phone to troubleshoot a problem for a chapter officer - all these are ways you can share your talents with the upcoming generation of Delta U. The tangible benefits of volunteering are few - business contacts, a little publicity, a thank-you dinner, things of that sort. But the intangibles are far, far more rewarding. Think of the gratitude you felt in college when someone older helped you. Now turn that emotion around and feel the warmth from the receiving end. See how your chapter conquers the obstacles that sideline other fraternities lacking in the chapter advising department. Enjoy the pride of seeing a new wave of DUs graduate and start to distinguish themselves, knowing that you had a hand in making them what they are. How does your volunteer balance sheet look? If you have the time and talent to give - and we all do - check in with your chapter, or one nearby. Then jump in. The water 's fine! Fraternally,

Reality Check-List

The current situation in Bosnia reminds DUs of our duty to rememb er those who make sacr ifices in military missions. We have had several respon ses from alumni regarding DUs who served in Korea or Vietnam. Keep in mind that we are also interested in men who served in later confli cts, such as those in Grenad a, Panama , Persian Gulf, or various peacekeeping missions around the world. Rememb er, if you or a fellow DU served in one of these conflic ts, DU's Quarterly Committee wants to know. Name , rank and location of your service with your last ass igned unit in the war zone, please. DU volunteers will compile the inform ation. Send to DU Veterans, 8705 Founders Road, India napolis, IN 46268, or fax to (317 ) 8761629.

Dear Editors: Me think s your Mr. R. P. Clark (The Advocate) does protest too much. In addition, his positions seem genera lly twisted. Regarding the Mt. Holyoke incident (October 1995 Quarterly), I would submit the following reality check-list: I. No one forced those gir ls to attend Mt. Holyoke, or, to get involved in a "gang outreach party;" 2. The reason that event is not a "c ause celebre" is because it is too boring; 3. If one is fortunate enough, co llege is a place to go away and grow up - plus, hopefull y, absorb some intelligence. I am sorry for the victim, but ju st what did these women want? If it was a cheap thrill, mis-directed motherhood complex, or perh aps some form of soc ial stateme nt; well , they willin gly entered into one of the poker games of life, and lost. So be it. Just face facts - in 100 years no one will care; and today, 99.99% of the world doesn't either. To conclude, I repeat my sadness for the (chance?) victim - and trust eve ry wo man involved will car ry her

part of the guilt to her grave . Sorry, but I must wo nder if these students have too little homework to occ upy their time ! Whatev er, it strik es me that they are basically, and plainly, stupid. Christopher Irwin, Denison '63

Executive Director's

DU Focused on Challenges of Today's Greek World As I reflect on my last several months as the Executive Director for Delta Upsilon, I'm delighted by the extremely positive reception I' ve received from the Fraternity's undergraduate and alumni memb ers. Countless DUs, and professionals in higher educ ation whom I' ve known for several years, have been quite welcoming. Following my appointment last spring, I have been immersed in the learnin g process - studying the organizational culture of Delta Upsilon , making needed decisions affecting operational issues within the Fraternity, and analyzing the strengths and challenges of the Fratemity's operation s. In addition , the International Headquarters (lHQ) staff has focused considerable time and effort on several key projects: The 1995 Leadership Instituteheld in Banff, Alberta Nearly 300 alumni, collegiates, and guests attended this terrific program in the majestic Canadian Rocki es. The 1996 Presidents Academy one of DU's most powerful educational programs. This year's program will be held in Arlington, Va, and will have in attend ance over 125 collegiates, facult y, and alumni. Insurance Program - following an exhaustive negotiation process, the Fraternity has secured superior general liability insurance for the renewal year. The Fraternity is also exploring the development of a networked propert y insurance program for interested house corporations. Fraternit y Strategic Plannin g - the Board of Directors, at its April and July meetin gs, has worked to formulate a series of critical goals to secure DU's

future and to Build the 21st Century Fraternity . Leadership Consultant Staff - the Fraternity is being served this year by four outstanding Leader ship Consultants. Much of the summer was devoted to their trainin g and education as they prepared for their work to serve the chapters and members of Delta Upsilon. To date, the Leadership Consultant staff has logged nearly 100 chapter visits. Electronic Communications - the IHQ is on-line and the staff is now able to communicate with DU members via e-mail at ihq @deltau .org. Plans are underway to develop and manage a Home Page on the World Wide Web. As the Fraternity moves through the current academic year, it is faced with two very paramount challeng es. One which Delta Upsilon has confronted over the last several years is a stead y decline in membership. Referred to as a "rush recession," chapters have consistentl y pledged and initiated fewer men in the last five years than in prior years. Fiscal year 1994-95 saw yet another decline , though slight, in recruitment numbers for DU chapters. The causes of the recession include chan ging campus/student demographics, financial concerns, misperceptions about Greek life, and burdensome rush rules. The solution is mult i-faceted and requi res a complete redressing of the manner in which we approach the "business of fraternity ." When Delta Upsilon chapters align their values and practices to the very core of the Fraternity, its founding princ iples, they experience positive growth , both in membership numbers and as men. The staff and the Board are committed to tackling this issue.


Another challen ge, and one our undergraduate members are exposed to regularl y, is alcohol use and its adverse consequences on the Fraternity. There is no other single factor today that is having a greater negative effect on Delta Upsilon, and the Greek world , than the misuse and abuse of alcohol. Whil e alcohol has for centuries been the social lubricant of choice , DU 's record with alcohol at the chapter level is cause for alarm. Presentl y, the Fraternity is wrestling with six lawsuits, some of which involved alcohol use to some degree . Further, the Fraternity is dealing with a number of other loss claims which involved alcohol. Our collegiate and alumni leaders must work in concert to develop strategies to better manage the problems connect ed between fraternities and alcohol. One may ask why anyone would serve as the Executive Director of a fraternal association when the Greek world is facing hurdle s like these I' ve noted. For me, the answer is simple. I love "fraternity!" There are few other institutions on campu ses today which provide greater and more satisfying opportuniti es for men to grow and develop than those provided by fraternit ies. The life-long friendships fostered by fraternity membership are clear examples. The ritual , the very fabric of "fraternity," is perhaps the most inspirational and cherished elem ent of fraternit y memb ership . It is for these reasons that I am an advocate for fraternity member ship and relish my role. I welcom e any comm ents and/or input from the Fraternity 's key "customers," its members, and hope you 'll contact me at DU's IHQ offices in Indianapolis. We're on-line, so feel free to contact me via the electronic freeway at Interfraternally,

Abraham L. Cross Executive Director & Editor



Volunteers for a Lifetime The spirit of volunteerism is nowhere more apparent in Delta Upsilon than in the dozens of men who tirelessly serve chapters as local advisors or as members of alumni corporation boards. The role DU alumni fill as volunteers makes many demands on time, and often on financial resources. A graduate who lives near a chapter house may sit in on weekly chapter or executive council meetings. Men who live some distance away may spend time on the phone consulting with chapter and alumni officers, plus reviewing correspondence of various types. Both may make occasional visits to campus, or a nearby city, where corporation board or alumni chapter meetings are held on a regular basis. Many DU alumni have served in these roles for a period of a few years, depending on other commitments and often their proximity to the campus or chapter house. However, other men have been advising their chapters for decades. Our goal here is to visit with a few of those men and see what makes the advising process work. From their experience, you'll see some patterns emerge. It is no surprise that what we learn from them is consistent with the goals and purposes of our Fraternity: to help young men learn and grow. The men of the Lehigh Chapter know Mark Parseghian, Lehigh '48, well. For the past 40 years, save three or four, he's been president of the alumni corporation serving his chapter. The 1948 graduate says that being able to listen to undergraduates is the most important skill a DU alumni advisor can bring to the task. "Over time, the type of student changes. It goes from liberal to conservative. Today we see men from a lot of different family backgrounds. "Many more of our members today are from single parent families, from very diverse backgrounds," said Brother Parseghian. "The undergraduates' attitudes toward things definitely change." No alumni advisor can tell a chapter to do something a certain way "just because that's the way we did it 40 years ago or 20 years ago," he said. "You have to relate to the men and their current situation by listening carefully to their concerns and helping them find an answer." The most important impact a DU alumni advisor can have is in terms of continuity. "History keeps getting reinvented," said Brother Parseghian. "Over time the university administration changes, and ideas 6


come up that have been proposed before. If you have advisors or corporation officers who have been in place a long time, they provide the continuity which the undergraduate simply can't have." Brother Parseghian said after 40 years, he still enjoys working with his chapter, which has been active continuously since 1885. "Many of these DUs do very well for themselves, both financially and in other aspects," said Brother Parseghian. "It's always good to see how they do and to hear from them as they progress through life." Brother Parseghian said his biggest concern is liability. "We carry extra liability coverage for the corporation officers just because of the legal system today. That's a concern, especially for younger alumni who are just starting a family, and for older guys like me, where you want to protect your assets.

"I felt an indebtedness, and since my college days 1 wanted to repay the Fraternity for what 1 derived from it." "The biggest risk is the alcohol problem and its results. We're always going to deal with that, and the men have to realize what the risks are." In Oxford, Ohio, the Miami Chapter has enjoyed a resurgence since arising from low membership and other problems in the latter 1980s. From having nine members at one point, the chapter now boasts close to 60 men who recently topped Miami University's 25 fraternities in grades. One guiding force for the chapter at 400 East Vine Street is Frank Dodd, Miami '49, who for years has operated his own business in Oxford and served the Miami Chapter in many capacities. For the past eight years or so, though, he's focused on renovation of the chapter's home, which had suffered during days when low numbers meant little or no money for repairs and improvements. "We started what we called the 400 East Vine Support Group, and asked our alumni to contribute a little more than the $25 a year they'd been accustomed to sending," said Brother Dodd. "Once that started up, we had something like $7,000 to $8,000 a year. "And once it looked like we were able to rebuild, other alumni jumped in to help," he said. "A nicer chapter house meant we were attracting a better

quality of man, and among other things they've concentrated on their academics." Gradually as the alumni group got the word out about the chapter's improvement, more renewed their membership and involvement in the chapter. "It's brought us all closer," said Brother Dodd. When there was lots of construction on the chapter house, Brother Dodd spent far more time there. "It may have been four or five visits a week when all the work was going on. "If the undergraduates have run into trouble, such as with the housing inspector, then through my contacts we've been able to get those concerns satisfied. And as we worked on the house, I'd try to help the men if they had questions about other areas." Brother Dodd said he hasn't spent so many years helping the Miami Chapter for what benefits it gives him, but to repay a debt he felt he owed. "When I was in college, my family broke up, my parents separated, and the Fraternity became my home," he explained. "At a time when I needed the Fraternity, the Fraternity came through. Undergrads came along and offered me help I couldn't have had in any other way. I felt an indebtedness, and since my college days I wanted to repay the Fraternity for what I derived from it. "It's been such a rewarding experience for me." Certainly, Brother Dodd has repaid that debt, and more, and the men of the Miami Chapter have derived much from Frank Dodd. The satisfaction of "now turning out a wonderful product" is what keeps Ed Ripke, Wisconsin '56, active and enthused as head of the Wisconsin Chapter's alumni corporation. As another chapter which has had its ups and downs, Wisconsin is a prime example of a chapter where steady, involved alumni advisors have paid dividends over the years. "I was chairman of the alumni corporation from about 1970 until 1978, and then I thought it was time I should get off and have someone else do it. "Then we had a big problem with vandalizing in the house," and when that was resolved, it was suggested Brother Ripke serve as president again. "The key to good advising is either to be able to wear many hats, or to have a mix of men who can do so," said Brother Ripke. "You have to approach things differently, when it's helping with finances, or to set up a program to prevent a repeat of some problem," he said. "If you have the right person who can use the different styles it takes, that's great. Otherwise you have to build the right team." Brother Ripke likens advising to parenting. "We know that for young men in a DU chapter, it is no good if we solve all their problems for them. They have to be the ones to decide what to do." But alumni advisors can guide the process and help undergraduates figure out what they need to attack a problem, and what the various options are.

Living in Milwaukee, Brother Ripke is about 70 minutes from the campus. One day a month he visits the chapter house, meets with the alumni and undergraduates he needs to see, looks at the house and the projects that are planned, and has whatever meetings are scheduled. "My wife thinks I have a girlfriend in Madison," he said. The chapter has recently undertaken a $400,000 fund raising project, for house improvements and for scholarships. The Syracuse Chapter has two alumni bodies. One is the Dikaia Foundation, which gives $7,000 or more in scholarships to deserving members of the Syracuse Chapter every year. The other is the Delta Upsilon Society, which is the combination alumni association and chapter house owner. That's where Knowlton Foote, Syracuse '61, gets his weekly workout with Delta Upsilon.


"You have to enjoy working with young men, and you must believe in the fraternity system." Living just 10 miles from the campus, Brother Foote attends weekly meetings "for the business of running Delta Upsilon," he said. "We take the first half of the meeting and discuss the concerns of the Society, whether it's risk management, or academics, or damage to the chapter house. Then the chapter president takes the second half to talk about the chapter's concerns. "I always say that governing a chapter is like running a business, and that's the approach that both the alumni and the undergraduates take to the process," he said. To be a successful chapter advisor, "you have to enjoy working with young men, and you must believe in the fraternity system" said Brother Foote. "You have to realize the amount of good you can do, working with men on a college campus. "We just had our annual Dikaia Foundation scholarship dinner, and in my remarks, I asked the men how many dormitories were having a dinner like this for their residents." To see the men mature and show their concern for one another is most rewarding, Brother Foote said. "It's also great to see that after they graduate, these men do an awful lot of networking. They keep an eye on one another." In a way, that's a great description of what DUs who advise chapters as alumni do for their chapters. DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY/JANUARY 1996


As a long-serving treasurer for the Delta Upsilon Interna tional Fraternity, the late Don Rasmussen, Pu rdu e '46, was an energetic and beloved supporter of our brotherhood . In the early 1980's, he began to float an idea to create a level of recognition for alumni brothers who had distinguished themselves through professional achievement, or service to DU, or both. Brother Rasmussen's concept was realized in 1984, when the first class of Distinguished Alumnus Award recipients was named. Since that time, only 25 out of 60,000 living DU alumni have been honored with the Distinguished Alumnu s Award. Last September, howev er, four men received the recog nition in ceremonies held in New York City, Edmonton, Alberta, and Lawrence, Kansas. Their stories follow.

Keith D. Bunnel, Kansas '46 From the moment he joined Delta U over 50 years ago, Keith Bunnel, Kansas '46, has distinguis hed himself as a leader. As an undergrad uate, he was president of the Kansas Chapter, president of the Interfraternity 8


Council, and president of the senior class in 1946. As a student, he was also instrumental in the selection, design, construction and funding of the Campanile at the University of Kansas. The Campanile is a landmark on campus and serves as a memorial monument to those who died in World War II. Upon gradua tion from Kansas, Brother Bunnel began an extraordinarily successful career with Westingho use Air Brake, which later merged with Amer ican Standard. Earning a record of steady promotions and increasi ng responsi bility in work for both com panies, Brother Bunnel eventually became Vice-Chairman of American Sta ndard. Since his retirement 14 years ago, Brother Bunnel has turned his attention to a variety of charitable activities. Principally, he has become reacquainted with Kansas University and the Delta Upsilon chapter there. Recently, he and his wife, Joan, expressed their support for the university by making a significant lead gift to complete the renova tion of the carillo n in the Campanile. Regarding Brother Bunnel's support for the DU chapter at Kansas, he has once again demonstrated tremendous leadership (for all brother s in every DU chapter) through his generos ity. The Kansas Chapter 's rece nt campaign to renovate and refurbish the chapter house was the beneficiary of a historic gift from the Bunnels. All told, they gave $447,000 to the DU campaign, the largest single gift ever given to any chapter or the International Fraternity and Educational Foundatio n. Spurring on all Kansas DU alumni and undergraduates, Brother Bunnel allocated $ 125,000 of his

total gift as a challenge to others to spark the campaign at a crucial time . Once again, his lead ership pro ved effective, as the chall enge was matched by other DU broth ers within 90 days. When asked why he made such a tran sformational gift to the Kan sas Chapter, Brother Bunnel' s foc us is on helpin g young men develop, and inspir ing them to support DU as alumni: "I ca n't think of a more effective way to be a positive influence on student s for hundreds of years to co me," he says . "By dem onstratin g o ur commitment to DU now, toda y's undergradu ates will canyon that commitment as the alumni of tomorrow. It's like thro wing rock s in a river - the rippl es keep going." Whil e his support has been directed to one DU broth erhood, Brother Bunnel's action s expose a new fronti er for alumni and friend s of all Delta Upsilon chapters. Through his gift , he has validated the frater nity exp erience as a primary component of his college education and his devel opment as an individual. Among those of significant financial mean s, many more DU alumni may feel similarly about what they recei ved from their fraternity memb ership. Brother Bunn el, however, stands as the first to have acted upon it. In this way. Brother Bunnel has served as a leader for all of us in DU, and has helped transform our non-secret fraternit y experi enc e at Kansas to a gra nd level for generations to com e.

Charles D. Prutzman, Pennsylvania State '18 It' s not a misprint. Brother Prutzm an was initiated into DU nearly 80 years ago, and recently celebrated his 98th birthday in fine health . In 1916 he attend ed his first DU Convent ion in Pro vidence, R.I., and all told he has been in DU for onehalf of the Fraternity's entire exis tence. Th rough eight dec ades of memb ership, Brother Prut zman has served at every level in Delta Upsilon . Invol ved in myriad undergradu ate activities, ranging from headin g up the debate team to playin g varsity lacro sse, Brother Prutzman exe mplified the phra se, "A DU in everything; every DU in something."

Throughout his life and membership in the Fraternity, he has accepted respon sibility and displa yed an exce ptional ability to lead . He was elected Chairman of Delta Upsilon in 1954 , which was followed by his being named President of the Fraternity in 1959. In term s of our history, he and only one other brother, W. D. Watkins, North Carolina '27, hold the record for longest peacetim e tenure (eight yea rs) in the offic es of DU Chairman or President. Professionally, he asce nded to the post of general co unse l for Universal Studios, fulfillin g responsibili ties that in toda y's business would be describ ed as those of the chief operating officer. For his remarkable profession al success and his lifetim e of service to Delta Upsilon , Brother Prut zman was awarded the Fraternity's highest recognition, the Distinguished Alumnus Award , on September 28, 1995 in New York City. Presentin g him with the award was Jim McQuaid, Chicago '60, President of Delta Upsilon International Fraternity. Among Brother McQuaid's remark s: " Underlying a life that has truly been a gift to those around him , Brother Prutzman has drawn a disparat e and ecle ctic circle of friends togeth er through his passion for purpose, generosity, integrity and wisdom . His dealin gs with 'Bill' (know n to you and me as W. C. Field s) and ' Bud & Lou ' (Abbott & Costello), alone ought to have earned him a Nobel Peace Prize. "A consummate famil y man , Broth er Prut zman's retirement from Univ ersal Studios was solely a deci sion to place his famil y first. Since that time - more than 40 year s ago - he has not wavered from a total commitment to his family. "As a part of the DU family over the past 80 years, Charli e has always exhibited a love for our brotherhood , those who built it, and those who will carry it into the future ... "...Charlie Prutzman's generosity to his chapter is legend ary - long ago he created a scholarship fund at Penn State that is restricted for our DU brothers... "Let me give you some of Charlie's word s from the first letter he wrote as D U President in the Quarterly magazine, 35 yea rs ago: ''' Presidents come and go, and eac h leaves some imprint on Delta Upsilon. Primarily, however, the strength of our Fraternity depends on the extent to which eac h indi vidual carries in his hea rt and life the prin ciples of Delta Upsilon . ''' It starts with the wearing of our pledge button and never ceases until life has end ed . Unless our fraternit y has inspired its members - undergraduate and alumni - it will have failed the individual."



As a testam ent to Brother Prutzman 's continuing relation ship with the chapter at Penn State , a delegation of undergraduate brothers journeyed from State College, Penn sylvania to New York City - four hours each way - to attend the weeknight award presentati on. In presentin g Broth er Prutzman with the Distinguished alumnus Award, Delta Upsilon recognizes someone who has co mmitted his life to the Promotion of Friendship, the Development of Character, the Diffusion of Liberal Culture, and the Advancement of Justice . As such , he stands as an inspiration to each of us, to maintain our lifetim e dedi cation to these noble principles.

W. D. Watkins, North Carolina '27 In the 43 year s of Delta Upsilon 's pre sence on the campus at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, one man has led all others by quiet, dignified example. He is universally acknowledged as the primary reason that the North Carolina Chapter grew and flouri shed , while some other chapters failed to survive. "Mr. Watkins ," as he is known to a legion of North Carolina alumni , provided the personal alumni supervision and involvement that is essential to any strong chapter operation. Forty years ago, he led the effort to secure the housing that today 's North Carolina undergraduates still call home . He was a resolutely dependable fixture at chapt er meeting s spanning four decades, and for over 20 year s, he met with chapt er officers eac h spring to set an annual budget for the comin g year. In additi on to the incalcul able gifts of time, Brother Watkin s has been a generou s benefactor for the chapter, at levels that have made a difference for anyone who has joined DU at North Carolina. His story would be remarkable enough, if his service and involvement were limited only to his DU chapter. The scope, however, of Brother Watkins' dedication to our brotherhood has reached far beyond the chapte r at North Carolina. Having established an outstanding career as president, treasurer, and director of Allshe er Hosiery Mills in Liberty, N.C., Brother



Watkins found himself making regular busine ss trips to New York City. The trips to New York allowed him to become acquainted with brothers who served on the DU International Board of Directors. Since the 1900's, the DU Headquarters had been in New York, and the Board met monthl y in the city. In the early 1960's, Brother Watkins was elected to the DU Board, and in 1969 was appointed its Chairman. During a tremendously difficult period for fraternities , Brother Watkin s shepherded DU throu gh with minimal losses, and upon conclusion of his successful tenure as Chairman, he was elected President of the Fraternity in 1973. From there, he was appoint ed to the Board of Trustees for the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation, where he also served as Chairman. The most ironic part of Brother Watkins ' story, however, is the fact that he was not recognized as an official member of DU, until he was almost 50 years old . No DU chapter existed on the North Carolina campus when Broth er Watkins was an undergraduate . He had joined a local fraternity called Sigma Delta , which quickly petitioned DU for a charter. The annual Delta Upsilon Con vention , however, did not grant Sigma Delta its reque st, althou gh the group petitioned each year for more than a decade. After a period of dormancy, Sigma Delta reorgani zed in 1949, and in 1952, the DU Con vention finally issued its approval. After 27 years of waitin g, Brother Watkins was jo ined by 25 other Sigma Delta alumni as initiates in Delta Upsilon. Having proven himself to be gracefully patient, Brother Watkin s has also endured a wait for recognition as a Distinguished Alumnus Award winner. In the words of Delta Upsilon's current Chairman of the Board, Rod Kirsch , North Dakota '78, "This award honors Delta Upsilon as much as it does Brother Watkins - it is long overdue, and we thank him for a lifetime of commitment to brothers throughout North America." On September 28, 1995, New York City was once again the backdrop of a reunion between DU and Brother Watkin s. In ceremonies at the Union League Club , Ned Heizer, Northw estern '51, past Chairman of the Fraternit y, and current Chai rman of the DU Educati onal Found ation , presented Broth er Watkins with the Distingui shed Alumnus Award medallion and certifi cate. While his modesty has always made him a reluctant award recipient , Broth er Watkins has earned his undeniable place as a truly distinguished DU alumnus. Most importantly, he has set a stand ard for the responsibilities we share as lifetime brothers in Delta Upsilon .

The Quarterly is indebted to Samuel Jones, North

Carolina ' 63 for his contribution to the story on Brother Watkins. Brother Jones is the author of Hark , The Sound of DU Voices, the history of the Delta Upsilon Chapter at the University ofNorth Carolina.

Dr. Francis Winspear, Alberta '38 From toiling as a bank clerk in a small Alberta prairie town , to owning over 40 companies around the globe by his retirement, Dr. Francis Winspear, Alberta '38, has excelled in the realm of business. As noteworthy as his extraordinary success, has been the extent to which he has shared it. Brother Winspear has recorded a legacy of generosity which has been matched by very few Canadians. Dr. Winspear graduated from high school at 14 but was too young to be admitted to a university. He enrolled in correspondence accounting courses and by 1930 opened his own accounting firm in Edmonton. By 1980 when he amalgamated his firm with another national accounting company, he had 26 offices in major cities across Canada. Sixty years ago Dr. Winspear was one of the founders of the Alberta Chapter of Delta Upsilon. He has maintained a direct interest in the Chapter and its activities ever since. Brother Winspear has been extremely generous to a wide range of universities and organizations across Canada. At the University of Alberta, he presented the Faculty of Business with the Winspear Library; founded a Faculty Academic Chair, and gave $2 million to the endowment fund. The Faculty of Arts was given $1 million as well as two Visiting Professorships. Local hospitals, the Edmonton Symphony, the Edmonton Opera, the National Youth Orchestra of Canada and the Edmonton Art Gallery have all been recipients of his generosity. The Winspear Foundation, an on-going force for educational and cultural life in Canada has played a vital supporting role for many organizations. A few months ago, Dr. Winspear saw the need to support the Edmonton Concert Hall Foundation. His donation of a $6 million gift stimulated the fund

campaign and when the $45 million Francis G. Winspear Centre for Music opens in 1997, it will be completely debt-free. Brother Winspear's gift for the Centre was the largest ever by a Canadian to a Canadian arts organization. At over 90 years of age, Dr. Winspear has received many national and international awards for his business expertise and generosity. On September 30, 1995, the Alberta Chapter's 60th Anniversary provided the appropriate backdrop for Brother Winspear's receipt of the International Fraternity's Distinguished Alumnus Award. DU's immediate-past Chairman of the Board, Robert J. Edgar, Alberta '55 , made the presentation to Brother Winspear in front of more than 100 brothers and guests . "The Alberta Chapter has always been tremendously proud of Dr. Winspear," said Brother Edgar. "Now that he's been recognized with Delta Upsilon's top award, we can share that pride with brothers throughout North America." As the most recent DU Distinguished Alumni, the names of Brothers Bunnel, Prutzman, Watkins, and Winspear will be permanently added to the elite list of other award recipients, which is published in each edition of the Fraternity's pledge and member manual, The Cornerstone.

What You Should Know About Sleep Disorders The National In stitutes of Health (NIH) have recognized a DU brother as one of the world 's top experts in the area of sleep research. Acco rding to the NIH, DI: William C. Dement, Washington ' 51, "more than any other individual, is responsible fo r the creation of a modern, viable fie ld of sleep research, espec ially as it relates to sleep-related pathologies. " This edition of our Health & Wellness f eature provides inf ormation at the cutting -edge of a fascinating fi eld of scientific study, thanks to excerpts drawn from Brother Dement 's recently published book, The Sleepwatchers. All quotes are reprinted with permission fro m the Stanford Alumni Association, publishers of the Portable Stanford book Series. A 1991 GalIup survey found that some 80 milIion peopl e in the United States suffer fro m insomnia. Wh ile there are over 100 officialIy recog nized diagnoses of different sleep diso rders, the intent here is to help you recogni ze only the most dangerou s and co mmon ones. Brot her Dement sugges ts that, "Careful obse rvation of the sleeper by a spouse or bed partner in alI likelihood ca n create a high level of suspicion and motivate the patient to seek medical help."

Sleep Apnea Syndrome Prevalent and Deadly Brother Dement's lifetime of research has produced a series of extraordinary findings, but he cautions that, "sleep apnea syndrome is sufficien tly common and sufficiently dangerous that everyone should be aware of it. 12


William C. Dement, Washingtoll '51 'The word apnea refers to the absence of breathing. Sleep apnea syndrome is the most important of alI the sleep disorders because of its high prevalence and its threat to life, health , and waking function. Th is problem can occur (though more rarely) in children and in women, with an increasing incidence in post-menopausal women. The first sign, typically, is loud snoring, which progresses to snoring with intermittent choking silences. Heavy snoring indicates resistance to air flow in and out of the lungs, and the silences, of course, indicate apnea. "One is predisposed to this illness by a variety of factors that reduce the size of the upper airway : among others, obesity, smalI jaw, large tonsils, and deviated nasa l septum... The sleep apnea condition ranges in severity from a few respiratory pauses per night to hundreds. Over 20 respiratory blockages per hour is unamb iguously c1inicalIy significant; ove r 40 to 50 is severe." The conditi on manifests itself in several ways, but Brother Dement offers the following warning signs, especialIy in someone who: "is unusualIy tired,

falIs asleep inappropri ately on occas ion, and snores in an annoying manner." If these conditions are observed, "the odds are great that the problem is sleep apnea... In particular, any adult male who is overwe ight, snores loudly, and has a tendency to falI asleep in committee meetings, in movies , or after lunch is almost certain to have this serious ilIness. "Given the small numb er of slee p ce nters in the United States and the numb er of treatment devices that have been so ld, we estimate that 80 to 90 percent of alI sleep apnea victims are as yet unidentified. Not only are they a danger to themselves and others on the road , they are also at risk for the developm ent of stroke and cardiovascular disease. "The high incidenc e of cardiovasc ular disease in males is due not only to cholesterol, obesity, and genetic factors, but also to sleep apnea. Periodic apneas are associated with a fall in blood oxygen and a grea t strain on the cardiovas cular system. In severe sleep apnea, life threatening irregularities or pauses in heartbeat are often seen, as well as high spike s in blood pressure at night and general hypertension in the daytim e." Estimates suggest that between two and eight perce nt of the entire male population have some degree of sleep apnea, but Brother Dement claim s that the incidence is far higher among senior citizens. "Severa l studies show that 10 to 30 percent of alI individuals over 65 have sleep apnea. It is therefore important that everyone have some sort of sleep and breathing eva luation later in life." Once diagnosed, what can be done to eradicate sleep apnea? Brother Dement suggests that, "Two new treatments...have virtualIy completely replaced chronic tracheotomy. One, a surgical procedure, works only in a limited number of patients. In the second treatment, a stream of air is blown gently into the nose alI night along, so that the airway does not colIapse with inspiration. This treatment is marvelously effective..." Despite these recently developed cures for sleep apnea, 20 percent of the patients stilI find themselves unable to be effec tively treated. Therefore, Brother Dement and his associate s at Stanford are "se arching for a sleep apnea pill."

Every Parent's Nightmare: Sudden Infant Death (SIDS) On an annual basis, 7,000 infants in the U.S. are lost to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). "The foregoing material should suggest that sleep apnea might be a cause of SIDS," observes Brother Dement. The small amount of research on this problem to date has not identified a clear-cut cause ... What is absolutely certain is that SIDS is a sleep disorder and occurs because of some problem the sleeping brain has in maintaining breathing, heartbeat, blood pressure, or some other vital function. "In contrast to the adult sleep apnea patient, who has symptoms and thus get examined, the infant is dead before anyone knows there is a problem... I have heard testimony from a large number of mothers and fathers of SIDS victims, and I can never hold back my public tears as I try to imagine being one of them. It is just too painful to hear yet another story of a mother who was happily rearing her baby, only to find it suddenly dead in its crib - a women who can do nothing more for her beloved infant than hold it dead in her arms a moment longer." While SIDS is not the most prevalent sleep disorder, Brother Dement feels more attention ought to be devoted to its study. "The means currently exist to monitor large samples of infants to find something that will predict and thereby allow us to prevent such catastrophes... Tens of thousands of infants would be required for such a study. But quite frankly, I would rather we spend our tax money doing this than searching for the sixth quark, or building weapons, or sending a few people into orbit around the earth."

'I Didn't Mean to, Honest! ' - Periodic Limb Movement (PLMS) Who hasn't been awoken at some point by experiencing a flailing leg during sleep? Another sleep disorder - perhaps the most common one - is called periodic limb movement syndrome

(PLMS). Nearly 25 years ago, it was Brother Dement and his colleague, Christian Guilleminault, who linked PLMS from its identity as a neurological problem, to its role as a very common sleep disorder. "We now know," says Brother Dement, "that prevalence of PLMS increases with age, to about 40 percent of all individuals over the age of 65." Typical PLMS patients experience involuntary leg movements two to three times a minute. This routine can last an entire night, or occur in intervals. From Brother Dement's observation, "This often vigorous movement can generate hundreds of brief awakenings and create complaints of severe insomnia or of marked daytime sleepiness - often by both patients and their bed partners. Try to imagine your bed partner flexing and thrusting his or her legs like clockwork every 25 seconds for an entire night. After a while it would be like Chinese water torture. "...Researchers continue to search for the cause and for a cure and a better treatment, which today consists of a moderately effective medication."

Insomnia While it covers a broad range of experiences, insomnia is experienced regularly by one-third of the general population in the United States. Until recently, however, it was not treated as a serious medical condition. Brother Dement suggests that, "At least one barrier to the diagnosis and treatment of insomnia is the widespread perception that it is a trivial problem, not worthy of a doctor's attention." Compounding the situation is the relative absence of instruction in insomnia treatment techniques among the nation's medical schools. Says Brother Dement, "Most physicians do not receive one minute of valid educational facts about insomnia in their training. Hence, when a patient does happen to complain of it, they have no idea what to do. When they do suggest something, it is usually out of ignorance and temerity." The National Sleep Foundation has, however, advanced the cause for insomnia as an important and in some cases

lethal medical condition. The foundation commissioned an extensive Gallup Poll that found insomnia indeniably linked with a variety of negative effects, from irritability and emotional problems, to a higher rate of automobile accidents. Considering all the people who fall asleep behind the wheel of a car," says Brother Dement, "surely there are cases of death as a result of insomnia."

The Controversy Over Sleeping Pills In his research on sleeping pills that has spanned three decades, Brother Dement has reached some strong conclusions: "If there is any area of clinical practice where myth and fantasy rather than data dictate what is done, it is in the use of sleep-inducing medications as a symptomatic treatment for insomnia. While the lay press and the pontifical writings of specialists harangue about the dangers of addiction and other side effects, the millions of people who occasionally use sleeping pills say something totally different. "...It is my medical opinion that sleeping pills give excellent relief, are typically needed only for a few nights, and should not be irrationally withheld by the physician." He allows for occasional exceptions, however and acknowledges that "uninformed and unsupervised use" of sleeping pills can cause addiction. "Although I would generally classify them as 'safe,' sleeping pills are not candy. They are therapeutic compounds - much like digitalis, cortisone, or antibiotics - to be used for a specific purpose with care and understanding by a physician who is licensed to prescribe them. If they were totally safe, they would be sold over the counter. However, I have not seen a truly addicted patient for almost 20 years. Excluding a physician who was taking 120 mg of Dalane every night on his own and falling asleep in the daytime - and eventually had an auto accident - I have never encountered a dramatic adverse reaction." If Brother Dement has any reservation about the use of sleeping pills, it's See DEMENT page 29 DEI:rA UPSILON QUARTERLY/JANUARY 1996


Alumni Chapter/Club News 200+ Attend Oregon Reunion On Sept ember 23 the Uni versity of Ore gon DU alumni held their biggest reuni on ever: 97 broth ers, I widow, and 2 "e x-DU Darling Court" memb ers paid to atte nd.

If the holmium laser TMR becomes a household term, you may want to thank Dr. Allan La nsing, Western Ontario '53. Dr. Lansing, a Louisville heart surgeo n, was the first doctor in the world to use the new holmium laser to perform the transmyocardial revascularization (TMR) procedure. The laser poke s tiny holes through the heart wall, allowing blood in the heart to filter into heart muscle which has lost its arterial sources of blood. Dr. Lansing traveled to Italy in November to try the new holmium laser technique.



Alumni News He then perform ed two procedures at Louisville hospitals, the first in the U.S. He was chosen to try the new holmium laser becau se he's done more than 100 procedure s with a carbon-dioxide laser. Th e holmium tests are to see whether it perf orms better than the carbo n-diox ide laser. Doctor s say animal tests show less bleedin g with the holmium laser, and a l-hour TMR procedur e cost s about $ 15,000, a third of heart bypass surgery. Th e holmium laser costs $300,000, about half the car bon-diox ide model's price tag. The TMR surgeo n operates while the heart is beating, through a small incision between the ribs, inserting a single optical fiber carrying the laser. It bores 15 to 30 holes in the heart wall, each about I millimeter wide . The outer layer of muscle heals immediately, but the inside of the hole stays open. Blood pressure in the left ventricle forces oxygenated blood into the holes, where it filters into the muscle fiber and keeps it alive. TMR is used in patients with coro nary artery blockage, where bypass surgery or balloon angioplasty has either failed or been ruled out. The holmium tests in Louisville will combin e with three other U.S. field trials to see if the techniqu e can win federal appro val for wider use. Scienti sts developed the techniqu e after studying reptile hearts, which don' t have arteries to the heart muscle, said Dr. Lansing, director of the Heart Institute at Audubon Regional Medical Center in Louisville.

Plan Now, and Change the lives of Generations to follow It doesn't matter if you graduated in the clas s of ' 18 or you plan to do so in '98. You can make a decision now to help your DU brothers of tomorrow. The services and guidance that each man receives in our Fraternity, help shape the kind of person he will become. Whether you realize it or not, you can influence the extent and quality of help offered to each undergraduate for years to come. Here's how... Each of us is rewarded for our work over a lifetime, and each must decide how those rewards will be distributed after we're gone. Upon death, we exercise the right to control with whom our rewards are to be shared , through a Last Will and Testament. Those who don 't prepare a Will surrender the control to one's state or provincial government - which may make decisions about the distribution of assets and property that are inconsistent with one's wishes. In making a decision to include Delta Upsilon in your Will, you are affirming that fraternity membership made a difference in your life - and that perpetuating DU's principles for future generations of students is worthwh ile. It's that simple . Gifts made from a Will are called "bequests" and when they are received , the results can be dramatic . Bequests offer the opportunity for donors to give at levels that endow scholarships and keep brothers in school , create faculty chairs and leadership seminars at Delta Upsilon 's two primary annual educational conferences, build educational facilities , and a host of other opportunities we can currently only dream about

providing for our brothers on campus. You need not be wealthy to make a profound impact on what DU can offer the students of today and tomorrow. A bequest to your brothers through the Educational Foundation will be added to a growing but still modest endowment of $1,000,000 . One of our competitors recently received that amount in one bequest alone! Creation of a Will, or the addition of a "codicil" (amendment) to an existing one, is best done through consultation with an attorney. Providing for DU in your Will, however, need not be a complicated process . In the box below, universally acceptable language is provided to ensure that your charitable intentions are met, to change the lives of undergraduate DU men for years to come . Today when brothers and friends of the Fraternity make a bequest to DU, they are advised to name the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation as the recipient. In so doing , estate tax savings are maximized. Unless a donor specifies otherwise, the asset is immediately restricted for addition to the Foundation 's endowment. Grants from the endowment can only be made for educational purposes to benefit DU brothers. Membership in The Dikaia Society is provided to anyone who plans to remember DU through a bequest. Annual listing in the DU Quarterly magazine is provided to Society members, along with other special benefits. Please write to or call DU Headquarters for details. Any man of property ought to have a Will, to control the destiny of the material rewards he has earned in life. Naming DU in your Will is a way to transfer the gifts of your fraternity membership to generations of brothers who will follow. I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation, with Headquarters at 8705 Founders Road, Indianapolis, Indiana, the sum of $ ; or the following , to described property: be used for the general purposes of the Foundation as the Board of Trustees may direct.

Loss Prevention by Ned Kirklin & James Bell, Calgary '94 uring our discussions of Loss Prevention, we often make the steps to ensure life safety and protection of property more complicated than necessary, to compensate for a significant failure. That failure is that each and every member is not fully prepared to accept responsibility for his personal actions. The answer is so simple that it is often missed as we attempt to engineer elaborate systems to avoid difficulties arising out of the operation of each DU chapter. If each member would assume responsibility for his actions, and live his life by the lessons taught in the ritual of Delta Upsilon, Loss Prevention would be a seldom used term and the financial burden of our Loss Prevention program would be greatly reduced. The following are simple rules for each DU brother to follow:


Risk Management and Life Safety Do's & Don'ts of Ungergraduate Life DO'S 1. Use your common sense -Question your actions. If you would be embarrassed to read about your actions in tomorrow's newspaper or to tell your parents, STOP ! 2. Be your Brother's keeper -- Use your common sense to protect your brother or friend when he is unable to use his own common sense. 3. Understand the personal consequences of your actions -- Brothers mistakenly believe their actions become the responsibility of the Fraternity and not themselves individually. An insurance claim against Delta Upsilon affects the Fraternity's insurance premiums for five years into the future, but it is the 18



Personal Responsibility

serious injury (loss of limb, loss of sight, loss of hearing, paralysis, or death) of you, your brother, friend, or chapter guest that lives with you for the rest of your lives. DON'TS 1. Don't put yourfun before the safety of others -- The selfish actions of a few lead to the harm of many. 2. Don't accept liability for others' desire to break the rules -- Often individual members that do not live in the chapter house will host a party at their off campus home and state that it is not a chapter function. In reality, the individual violates criminal statutes by purchasing and serving liquor to minors and puts his assets and those of his parents in jeopardy due to civillitigation. 3. Don't forget to respect your fellow student -- Each year fights are reported involving Delta Upsilon members where each member risks criminal charges, civil litigation, and serious injury. Also, the lives of many young men and women are destroyed by what should be a fun evening turning into accusations of sexual assault. In addition to accepting responsibility for personal actions, undergraduate members and alumni volunteers have the obligation to protect others by following simple rules within the chapter house and property.

Simple Tips for Property Management that Protect the Facility and the Lives of Your Brothers With the aging of Delta Upsilon's chapter houses there are significant improvement projects that must be carefully planned with the involvement of the house corporation and the general

membership. While the undergraduate membership may not be able to undertake significant physical plant improvement projects, there are a number of simple rules to effective property management that will protect the facility from damage, impact life safety, and make the chapter house a safer place to reside. 1. Keep the inside of the chapter house clear of all debris. Make certain that members' belongings are kept in appropriate areas and not piled in the corner of sleeping rooms or open air dorms where they may create fire hazards. 2. Make certain that old lumber from chapter homecoming displays or floats are not stored behind the chapter house and against walls where a fire could easily be ignited. 3. Establish a "No Smoking" policy in the chapter house. If smoking cannot be banned, limit it to designated areas. Careless smoking and match disposal are leading causes of fires. 4. Do not overload circuits. The electrical systems of older chapter houses were not designed to run the large number of electrical appliances some members keep in their rooms. Make certain that power strips are installed, in accordance with local codes, to avoid electrical overload. S. Make certain that all cleaning materials are properly stored in a closet that is not near any heat source. Also make certain that cleaning materials are not mixed with similar materials until the time of use and properly dispose of them following their use. Cleaning materials that are improperly mixed and stored can become flammable, and pose risks of poisoning. 6. Monitor the chapter house for slip and fall exposures at all times. Make certain that all ripped carpets are repaired and all slippery floor surfaces

have some sort of traction tape or adhesive material applied to avoid the potential slip and fall. Route electrical cords properly, and clean up water on floors promptly. 7. Host all social functions at facilities outside the chapter house while utilizing a third party transportation source with a professional driver. Social functions in the chapter house are significant causes of facility deterioration and destruction. Look at the women's fraternity houses; look at your own chapter house. Notice any differences? Unfortunately, the best prevention does not always stop a liability claim from arising. It is the belief of Delta Upsilon Fraternity that there are three lines of defense to any tort liability claim. First is loss prevention, second is loss control and the final line of defense is the Fraternity's general liability insurance program. The following graph depicts dollar amounts that have been paid to-date and amounts reserved for on-going litigation from the most recent three policy years. Each member accepting responsibility for his actions will help to reduce the financial burden placed on all of us.

Delta Upsilon Claim History Value as of 10/1/95

Delta Upsilon is keenly aware of its duty to protect its assets, and the assets of its volunteers and members, from litigation. It was this understanding that led to DU's entry into the coordinated purchase of a general liability program in 1990. At that time, the Fraternity realized that many chapters did not or could not secure liability insurance coverage and so the Fraternity acted to begin a general liability insurance program. The Fraternity's insurance program has undergone changes over the past few years and for the current policy year beginning November I, 1995, the Fraternity has purchased general liability coverage with a limit of $4,000,000 per occurrence and in the aggregate for each location of the Fraternity. General liability coverage will protect the entities and members of the Fraternity for claims against them arising out of bodily injury and/or property damage. General liability coverage will not protect individuals who are the perpetrator of an intentional act or violate the loss prevention policies of the Fraternity. Within the insurance program the Fraternity assumes a self-insured retention (deductible) of $50,000 per occurrence and $150,000 in the aggregate for the policy year. Monies to fund the selfinsured retention are included within the risk management assessment charged chapters each fall and are the first dollars spent to defend any claim. At the time of a loss there is no additional financial obligation for the chapter. The greatest opportunity for cost savings for DUs is to prevent losses from occurring so that the dollars that have been collected to fund the selfinsured retention can be used for future years' insurance needs. By preventing losses today, Delta Upsilon will be able to establish a long term successful claim record and reduce cost paid to the insurance carriers in the future. For the 1995-1996 policy year Delta Upsilon has enacted a new method for allocation of the costs of the Loss Prevention Program. Prior to the current policy term, costs had been allocated by taking the total cost and dividing it by

the number of members in the Fraternity and charging each chapter based upon its membership. The new method for allocation allows a chapter to earn credits and be charged debits based upon certain factors. The factors for which a chapter can be assessed a debit to their per-mancharge is: loss prevention violation, existence of chapter house, claim history and lack of attendance at the Leadership Institute. Credits can be earned for existence of the following factors: no claim history, attendance at the Leadership Institute, existence of an alcohol-free chapter house or substance-free (i.e., alcohol and tobacco products) chapter house. The development of this allocation model is intended to remove some of the subsidization that exists when costs are allocated strictly based upon total program cost divided by number of members. What does the future hold? The answer will be determined by the action of all members of Delta Upsilon Fraternity. The unsafe acts of some members lead to the losses incurred by our Fraternity. It is incumbent upon our membership to accept the responsibility for their personal actions and remember that it is a significant injury ( i.e., paralysis, amputation, or loss of life) incurred by our member, our Fraternity brother or friend, that leads to a liability claim against the Fraternity. Our membership suffers the greatest human loss when a significant injury occurs out of the operations of a Delta Upsilon chapter. The General Fraternity suffers only a financialloss. If our members accept responsibility for their actions and our alumni volunteers provide the appropriate guidance, the future is bright. We all hold the future of Delta Upsilon in our hands and our actions will determine the future. Let us all make certain that we fulfill and exceed the expectations of our Fraternity. Ned Kirklin is the Fraternity's insurance broker. Brother Bell is currently the Fraternity's Director of Chapter Management.

Delta Upsilon hold s a major role in the events of the Carnegie Mellon University community. With the extreme diversi ty of the brotherhood, a DU can been found in j ust about every aspect of campus life. Our relations with the University remain strong, and we have our share of leaders on campus. Brothers of Delta Upsilon currently hold the positions of President, Secretary, and Rush Chairman of the Intrafraternit y Council. We are also very proud to have the finest coo k on campus, Jimmy Lomb ardi. Athletics also remain strong here at Delta Upsilon. We have men on the football, swimming, track, and lacro sse teams, and DU has once again established itself as the leading organization in intramural sports. We had a very success ful fall rush this year, pledging the largest class of all the fraternit ies on campus. We are doing a fund-raiser for the Pittsburgh AIDS coa lition, and recently partic ipated in a Blind Awareness Dinner with Delta Gamma. We are planning another philanthropy event for next semester with

Carthage Ranks #1 Academically

Georgia Tech Continues to Raise Funds for New House This year, the Georgia Tech Chapter has undergone internal reorganization in preparation for the enormous task of constructin g a new chapt er house. The by-laws were scrutinized and updated, includin g the creation of the Financial Review Committee, which effectively relieves the Exec utive Commi ttee of numerous monetary issues and allows it to focus on other fraternity matters. Additi onall y, a Fundraising Committee was created to raise the $40,000 remaining before construction can begin. Chapter attention has also been turned to strengthening sorority ties by establishin g brothe r monitors for Panhelenic study hours and through the creation of a Sorority Relations Chair. This position responds to each soro rity's Founders Day and organizes mixers. Alumni relations have improved as a result of a phone-a-thon , intended to update informati on and ask for contributions to the house fund. Philanthropy has been very active with the Atlanta Ce ntral Night shelter, where brothers volunteer to feed and watch over some of the city's less fortunate. Finally, the chapter would like to express their gratitude to the Florida State Colony for the brotherly treatment received when several Georgia Tech DUs road tripped to FSU 's homecoming.

Injured Kent State DU Returns to Campus. Noon on a Saturday in most college towns is peaceful. Dorm s, apartment s and homes are silent as students sleep off either a week of studying or a night of partying . But on October 7, 1995, the Delta Upsilon fraternity house on South Lincoln Street was active . Inside, about 20 members paced from room to room or anxiously watched colleg e football . The y were waiting for Chad John son, a fello w member - absent from Kent State since last Spring . In May, Johnson was seriously injured during a tug-of-war competition on Manch ester Field. The accident left him a quadriplegic. Johnson has no movement from mid-che st down. Saturday marked his first visit to Kent State since the accident. Accompanied by his brother Sean and three friends from high school, Johnson's optimism was evident. Johnson was happy to see his fraternity brothers again, but he credited his positive outlook to progress with his physical condition. "Now that I'm out of the hospital, I've been doing physical therapy to get my muscles going," he said. "I'm starting to get my triceps back. That helps a lot." "Since he's been out of the hospital he's been in very good spirits," he said. "He was doing poorly in critical care because people with similar injuries were recovering faster. That was hard on him . But we're all doing better now that he's out." Chad said he is looking ahead 22


Kansas Chapter Library, Lawrence, Kansas. because many of his doctor 's early predictions did not hold up. "The y didn 't think I'd get off the respirator." he said. "Now I' ve got my bicep and tricep muscles back. Everything they predicted didn 't come true. I have full feeling in my body." Though this marked his first time back at Kent State in five months, it is not Chad Johnson's first time back at school. "I' m already taking classes at TriC," he said. "Hopefully I'll come back to Kent." Should he return to Kent State , Johnson said he will stay with DU. He said the fraternit y has been very supportive of him and his family. Originally a theater major, Johnson has changed his course of study since the accident. "I' m probably going to go into counseling to help out other people in this situation ," he said. "I'd like to get into rehabilitation. There wasn't much

organization for spinal cord patients when I was in the hospital." DU President Bill Sopk o said the chapter initially planned to visit Johnson at his Olmstead Falls home . "We originally wanted to go to his house and spend the weekend with him," Sopko said . "But this was something he wanted to do. He wanted to get out of the house." Sopko said Johnson's injury has made the chapter stronger. "It helped us gent together and get stronger as a fraternity,' he said. "We are all here for him, and the house is here for him, whether it's financial or other support. He knows it and his family knows it." Support for Johnson also came from Delta Upsilon alumni. Four members of the alumni chapter met with Johnson at the house Saturday. "We have an alumni chapter organized to support the undergrad chapter," said Nick Giorgianni , an alumnus in attendance Saturday. "When

someone in the brotherhood is in need, what you do is help." To be fully independent, Johnson needs a van specialized for his electronic wheelchair. Such a vehicle costs about $40,000. Johnson 's insurance does not cover the cost. Despite this setback, the DUs have already begun fundra ising efforts. "Our goal is to raise a whole chunk of money for him," Sopko said. "Our chapter, the alumni chapter and his hometown have already held furndra isers." Fundraising efforts have been successful. A volleyball tournament this spring earned $ 1,400 for Johnson's medical cos ts. Nonetheless, Sopko said the DUs want to continue. "A car wash can only take you so far," Sopko said. "We want to make sure the fundraisers we do are very successful." Presently, the DUs are trying to secure a concess ion stand at Cleveland Stadium to earn money for Johnson.

Manitoba Hosts Youngsters at Homecoming Game Following an enthusiastic kicko ff to the 1995-96 school year, the men of the Manitoba Chapter are working diligently to further enhance Delta Upsilon's position at the Unviersity of Manitoba. On September 16 our chapter hosted the 2nd annual Big Brothers Bowl, in which DUs took boys from the Big Brothers Program to the Homecoming game. As with last year, we started the day with a touch football game followed by a tailgate BBQ. By the end of the day, brothers young and old were worn out from cheering on the victorious Bisons. Our members also had the pleasure of interacting with our alumni at our Founders Day Banquet. At the dinner we honored Brother Craig Gluck ' 87 as Manitoba Alum nus of the Year. We plan a Manitoba newsletter to keep our alumni in touch with each other and informed of chapter activities. Kelly 1. Lewis '98, President

Pennsylvania Hosts Communiversity Day With help from the Delta Upsilon fraternity, West Philadelphi a students got a peek at Universi ty life. Communi versity Day is a University-wid e program aimed at integratin g local community members with Penn students, faculty and admini strators. DU was the first Penn group to host a Communiversity Day event this year. The 10 West Philadelphia students who were members of a program for gifted students called Access to Exce llence, began the day with a campus tour and discussion with a University admissions officer. The y also spoke with Social Work Professor Rufus Lynch and then toured the offices of The Daily Pennsylvanian . The students finished the day with a dinner at the DU house at 40th and Walnut streets, where they met Univers ity President Judith Rodin and heard the musical group Chord on Blues perform. "This is an idea we had last year," Rodin told the group. "We want people to know what goes on here." She also praised the DU brothers for volunteering their time. "You folks have done a wonderful thing, you really have," she said. " It is good work . It makes us proud to be at Penn." DU President Randy Hicks, a College sophomore, said philanthropic projects like yesterday 's eve nt are important to the chapter. "One of the vehicles of commun ity service is the Greek system," he said. " It is our pleasure to put on something like

this. We learn as much as the kids do. "The main purpose is to make them start thinkin g about their future ," added Panos Martini s, a DU brother and Whart on junior who coordinated the eve nt. Both the local students and their admini strators were also pleased with the days events. Reprinted from The Daily Pennsylvanian . November 3, 1995.

Rochester Rewarded for Membership Education The chapter has been awarded a new floor for housing on the UR campus. The old floor was becomin g crowded with our 45 brothers and we were unable to hold meetings in the small facility. The university consid ered a numbe r of factors in their decision. We had a year of good programming, includin g a class on ethical decisions and social issues presented by our facul ty advisor, Joe Brennan , a welco me back barbecue for freshmen, and various health and comput er seminars. We also demonstrated outstanding risk management, housing administration, and service to the university. Our achievements were also recognized by the Greek Community. The chapter was awarded a number of prestigious awards at the Greek Week Awards Ceremony last spring. We won first place in the following categories: Philanthropy , Membership Developm ent , and Greek Relations. Educational Programmin g, Leadership, and Scholarship all earned seco nd place.

South Carolina Teams-up Raises Money for Children's Hospital The South Carolina Chapter has gone throu gh an immense transform ation over the last two and a half years. Morale is higher and participation of memb ers is prevalent now more than ever. There is finally an sense of true optimism. Our fall semester began with a very



successful rush. Th e Alpha Nu pledge class con sists of 19 very dedi cated young men . Althou gh our beloved Gamecock football team did not fare as well as the previous season, there was no loss of exc itement for our final game vers us the in-state rival Clem son Tigers. One of the many eve nts surrounding the game was our Carolin a-Clemson Gameball Run . The event is a 148 mile relay in which every participant car ries a gameball until he or she is tired, only to hand the ball off to a fresh runner. Th e men of the Theta Nu Chapter of Alph a Phi Alph a Fraternity Inc. and the wom en of the Alph a Lambda Chapter of Delta Delta Delta Sorority assisted us in raising nearly $2,000 dollars for a local children 's hospital here in Columbia. Our alumni chapter, headed by President Terry Schm oyer '8 8, is currently assisting the under graduates in exploring the steps needed for us to build our first house! Th e university's master plan, which calls for all Greek orga niza tions to be housed in free standing struct ures is rum ored to take effect as early as this summer. Any undergraduate or alumn i chapter that could share any prior exper ience in the realm s of co nstruction of new houses would be great ly ap pre cia ted. Our immediate need s are in the areas of fund raising and the form ulation

The National Interfratern ity Conference (NIC) has endorse d efforts to develop pilot initiati ves for alcohol and drug free housing for entire Greek system s. At its annual meet ing in Decemb er, the NIC noted that one- third of entering college students show interest in living in substance-free environments, and that having no alcohol in chapter houses creates a setting which promotes beh avior more co nsisten t with fraternal ideals and principl es. Several campuses have recently taken steps to limit or ban alcohol at fraternity function s; sorority houses have for many years prohibit ed alcohol on chapter property. NIC endorsed a joint commission with the National PanHellini c Conference to develop some pilot substance-free initiatives on campuses. Delta Upsilon Fraternit y is a member of the NIC.

that they can wo rk too we ll. He obse rves that , "My only rea l conce rn with sleeping pill s is daytim e carryove r seda tion. Som e slee ping pills, notably flurazepa m, ha ve a long dur ation of actio n, whic h ofte n causes a troubl esom e degree of sedation in the dayt ime ... "Of currently marke ted sleeping pills, I prefer triazolam because it goes to work rapi dly and, more imp ortant , rarely if ever shows a daytim e carryove r."

A Tragic Lesson and a Final Word Ha ving reviewed some of the ph ysiolog ical causes and effec ts of slee plessness, we risk stating the blatantly obvious in a final reco mme nda tion to everyone: get more sleep. You ha ve Brother Dement 's permi ssion and indeed his admoniti on to do so . He cites the Nation al Transport ation Safety Board 's investigation of "27 8 fatal-to-the-drive r truc k acc ide nts. T hey identify the major cause of such fatalities as slee p depri vation and fatigue - an even greater hazard than drugs and alco ho l. "These findings hint at a mamm oth but camoufl aged societal problem: [the U.S.] is a nation whose citizens do not get eno ug h slee p." Sadl y, our own Delta Ups ilon family ratified Brother Dement' s assertion as rece ntly as last summer, whe n a brother and a pled ge were killed in an early morn ing automo bile accident, while returni ng from the annual DU Leadership Institute. As Broth er Dement wise ly observes, "Accide nts of this natu re are not acc idents; they are the inev itable co nseque nce of inadeq uate sleep. None of this is necessary. A strategy as trivial as an evening nap might ha ve save d the Exxon Valdez. Closer to hom e, some simp le knowled ge and understanding of how the urge to sleep can take us by surprise might prevent a young student from ge tting into a car to dri ve home from a part y or a late- nigh t study sess ion - and into a one-car roll over. "We ha ve becom e a 24-hour society, and ye t we have not beg un to struc ture our schedules for optimum function . Th e nece ssary facts ha ve been gathere d throu gh sleep research ; they need only to be communica ted and understood . Indi vidual s may still choose to risk their lives, but at least they oug ht to have a cho ice. Somed ay, dri ving or going to work whi le sleepy will be as reprehe nsible and even as crimi nally negli gent as dr iving or go ing to work wh ile drun k." Copies of Brother Dement's books, Th e Slee pwatchers, and Som e Mu st Watch Whil e Some Must Sleep, are available by writing to: The Portable Stanfo rd, Stanford Alumni Associ-


Brother Dem ent is the Berr y Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Scien ces at Stan ford Uni versity, and was app ointed Ch airm an of the Nation al Commission on Sleep Disord ers Resear ch in 1990 .

R. P. Clark, Marietta '66

"Elite": ADirty Word with an Honorable History "Elite" or "elitist" may be one of the last dirt y words. Yet it has an honorable history. It describes 8-po int type, and some of Her Majesty's tonier Regiments like the Co lds trea m Guards. It is the sloga n of hundreds of sma lltown diners ("Where the elite mee t to eat" ), the name of countl ess dry cleaners. And it has also been appl ied to so me of our great institutions of higher learning. But the acad em ic head uneasily wears this par ticular ver bal crown today. " Elitist" has become a catc hall term of dispara gem ent , usually turn ed again st exce lle nce and accomplishment, or against selective orga niza tions such as fraternities and sor orities. Enc ouragin gly, some unexpected voice s have been raised to rehabilitate word an d co nce pt. One is William A. Henr y III, a Pulitzer Pri ze-winn ing Time magazin e writer, who has written In Defense of Elitism. It deserves wide readership. M r. Henr y takes on the anti-elitist ment alit y with bare knuckles. He skew ers downward leve ling, the deval uation of values, and the co unterfe it self-es tee m of multi culturalism . He admire s "elitists who ru thlessly seek out and enco urage intelligenc e..who will not grade on a curv e and are willing to flun k the whole class." He co ncludes that extremist ega litarian s - and indeed a dictatorial subculture of their tribe - have gai ned asce nda nce to the de triment of exce llence , rational discou rse and intellec tual free do m. Now when charges of elitism are directed at Greek organ izations by an tifraterni ty aca dem ics, yo u might think that even the latter 's atrophied sense of shame wou ld make them blush. After all, what is more elitist - and ofte n more

unrelated to the objective ly measured capacity of perform anc e - than many uni versity admissions policies? Education itself is ma nifest ly an elitist ente rprise, which is perh aps why so many of its practiti one rs are cle arly uncomfortable engagi ng in it, and ac tively seek to und erm ine its standa rds .

Our goal should be to live up to the term "elitist" , in its best sense, not to shrink from it. The acade mic levelers who cite the alleged traum a inflicted on tender psyches by lack of a fraterni ty bid are also in perpetu al flight from uncom fortable fac ts. Part of growing up is the recognition that we will be we lcomed by some club s, co mpanies, co -worke rs and members of the oppos ite sex. We will be rejected , not always kindly, by others. And while this may see m unfair, acco rding to ou r injured sensibilities or so me imagi ned cos mic sense of ju stic e, nowhere is it wri tten that life sha ll be "fai r." Nature is, after all, highl y capri cio us. Intelligence is unevenly dis tributed. So are pulchritud e, charis ma, the ability to throw a curve ball or sing on key. And so also is "cl ubability," the subtle, subje ctive but very rea l constella-

tion of personalit y characteristics that makes some people valued memb ers of social organizations, and others happier as hermits. The anti-fraterni ty elemen t's cha rges against Greeks usually ce nter around elitism as social snobbery. Our critics are livi ng in the past. T here isn't a chapter of Delt a Upsilon that does not represen t diversity, brou ght about by the free choice of its me mbers hip, not by coercive social engi neering and quotas. Wh ether the chapter meets some ideolo gize d administrator's arbi trary standards of politi cally correct diversity is, of co urse, irrele vant. Indeed , using the levelers' standards, the very emphasis DU place s upon developing leadership could be attacked as elitist, for alas, natur e has not see n fit to equip everyone with the "leadership gene." Certainly, Delta Upsi lon with its commitment to justice has a spec ial obligati on to use ration al cri teria in its rushing policies - to pled ge not on the basis of "ex ternal packa ging" but on ev idenc e of personal qualities, charac ter and potenti al co ntribution -- our 1834 Willi am s found ers called it, simply, "merit." Indeed, to do otherwise is selfdefeat ing. It is this kind of intelligent selectivity that attracted most of us to DU in the first place. And j ust as a univers ity will occ asionally base its selection or excl usio n on less-th an-r ation al or Co nstitutional gro unds, fra terni ty chapters will also err, with perhaps greater exc use and certainly with less profound consequences. Our goa l sho uld be to live up to the term "e litist," in its best sense, not to shrink from it. So, when they throw the last dirt y word at you because yo u're part of a proud 162-year old trad ition, co nsider the source. And smile.
