The DU In Charge of Military Operations in Afghanistan


My Challenge to You ••• o you want to help make the world a better place? Do you want to help build better men? See below! The young men who entered college this fall are the best and brightest in decades. They are respectful, they believe hard work is rewarded, they believe cooperation makes sense, and they believe justice will prevail. These are the most dutiful, optimistic, industrious kids that I have seen in my many years of working with young people. In a recent book by William Strauss and Neil Howe titled Millennials Rising, these same Ed Portel; Oklahoma '65 observations are made. This may be the next "Greatest Generation." In the years leading up to these young men entering college, many have had parental help and guidance and when those factors are missing in the home, they are available from a multitude of organizations that serve youth. Many of our DU brothers are involved in these organizations. Yet, upon entering college, many of these support elements are missing. Parents are far away and youth organizations are focusing on younger kids. This group of great young men need and want support and leadership in the areas of character development, cultural appreciation, and friendship. Delta Upsilon International Fraternity is better positioned than any other campus organization to meet those needs. DU's purpose of Building Better Men is what these young men seek. You can help! My challenge to you is to get involved in the DU alumni group in your town or city. Help your chapter recruit a group of these fine young men. Be a mentor to one or several new DUs. You had a great experience as an undergraduate DU; now it's time to pass it on. You will be rewarded far beyond your contribution. Seeing these young men become better men as a result of your efforts will be your reward. You will be making the world a better place. If you are not sure where to start, e-mail the DU office in Indianapolis ( or me. I will put you in touch with your alumni chapter or undergraduate chapter or some other chapter near where you now reside. This is a call that you will be glad that you made!

he Massachusetts Chapter house was lost to fire on Friday, October 5, 2001. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but the brothers lost all of their possessions, including books, computers, school work, and clothes. The 23 brothers who lived in the house have been provided alternative temporary housing through a number of sources - off-campus motor lodge, out-of-house member apartments, other fraternities, etc. The Bradley, Central Florida, and Virginia Chapters (just to name a few) have made tremendous donations of those every-day necessities to the Massachusetts brothers, but more help is needed. Donations can be sent to Alumni Chapter President, Jason Hollis at 1942 Central Street #20, Stoughton, MA 02072, 781.297.9731, or

ommy R. FranI{s, Genel'aI, United States Army,

Texas '67, is the Com mander in Chief, US Central Co mmand, who directs the military operations of a 25-nation region, incl uding Afghanistan, Pakis tan, and the Persian G ul f states. A native of Wy nnewood, OK, and a 1967 distinguished graduate of the Artillery Officer Candidate School , he has held a vari ety of important command and staff positions. These positions included hi s service with the US Army Europe, the US Forces in Korea, the 9th Infantry Division in Vietnam, and the First Cavalry Di vision during Operati ons Desert Shield and Desert Storm. A much-decorated former artillery officer, he took over as head of the US Central Command j ust pri or to the attack on the USS Cole during which 17 American sailors were killed. In mid-November, General Franks flew into Bagram air base north of Kabul , Afghanistan, fo r talks with leaders of the oppos ition Northern Alliance. It was the fi rst visit to Afghanistan by a US Army general in charge of the mil itary operation since a US- led coalition began bombing on October 7, 200 1. From hi s command post at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida, B rother Franks wrote us recentl y: 6


"Since the I I th of September I've thought a lot about the many blessings of this great nation and all the freedom that we enjoy. The road to victory in America's new war against terrorism will be long and difficult ...and many will ask whether the 'pr ize' is worth the price. As the man with the responsibility to do what must be done in Afghanistan, I believe the 'prize' is indeed worth our very best, all we have .. .for as long as it takes. Our Commander-in-Chief said, 'We will not falter and we will not fail.' Indeed not, because the 'prize' is our way of life, the legacy we'll leave our children and our grandchild ren. The wonderful idealism of youth, the sobering realities of adulthood. "I remember fondly my two years at the University of Texas, living in the DU house , my friends , my brothers, and a motto that at first I did not understand - Oikaia Upotheke. I remember Phil Ruzicka '65, Mike Corley '67, Jim Sewell '67, Terry Marlatt '67, Jack Slayton '67, and a great many more. Memories from a time long ago... wonderful memories. What a great way of life, what a great country! "I'm so very lucky to share in the American Dream. I have learned over the past 35 years the meaning of Oikaia Upotheke - Justice, Our Foundation.AII of us who wear the uniform practice the motto. We will not falter...and we will not fail."

Outstanding Sportsmen and Brothers ollowing our Winter 2000 magazine feature of the DU Sportsmen of the Century, we received mail advising us of some additional mentions that needed to be made.

Edgar and Foote Recognized as Distinguished Alumni


E. Foote 8

t is good to be reminded

that our Fraternity is an international brotherhood. On October 5, 2001, it was forcefully shown that members from our Canadian chapters are tremendously successful, involved, and exceedingly deserving of wearing the badge that symbolizes our membership in Delta Upsilon. In a ceremony at the newly renovated Alberta Chapter house in Edmonton, Alberta, nearly 150 alumni and guests from all over North America joined in honoring Delta Upsilon's two newest recipients of the Delta Upsilon Distinguished Alumnus Award . The award is the highest honor the Fraternity can bestow upon a brother of our Fraternity. Eldon D. Foote, Alberta '48, and Robert J. Edgar, Alberta '55, were honored in a ceremony that brought out an enormous crowd. The Alberta alumni showed their support by showing up in the hundreds, and were enthusiastic as the two men were presented their awards . Indeed the two distinguished brothers and their dedication to the Alberta Chapter and to Delta Upsilon were the reasons for the large crowd and the wonderful ceremony! Alvan E . "Ed" Porter, Oklahoma '65, and Allan Warrack, Alberta '61, presented the awards on behalf of the Fraternity and its Board of Directors. In front of the standing room only crowd, Brothers Foote and Edgar were presented the gold medallions bearing the Delta Upsilon Coat of Arms, honoring them with the Delta Upsilon Distinguished Alumnus Award. After the presentation of the award, each brother offered grateful remarks , and the gathered crowd was held spellbound by their stories and comments on a life lived by the principles of Delta Upsilon. Brother Foote remarked that it was his pleasure to help guide and assist the Alberta Chapter, and that it was easy to give back to a Fraternity that gave him so much. Brother Foote practiced litigation law for 19 years



Eleanor and Bob Edgar

and in 1965 was appointed a Queen's Counsel. In 1967 he moved his family to Australia from which location he assumed the management of the HomCare franchise in Hong Kong and Japan . The Foote family home for the last 22 years has been on Norfolk Island, a tiny island in the South Pacific, separated from Australia by 700 miles of ocean. Brother Edgar accepted his award, remarking that he only wanted to help people, and there was no better way to accomplish it than through the Fraternity and by the principles for which it stands. He also noted that the things he has accomplished have only been possible because of Delta Upsilon, and more importantly, because of the people that were close to him, including his wife, Eleanor. Brother Edgar 's profession was a pharmacist and he worked for a number of years for the Government of Alberta, Alberta Consumer & Corporate Affairs as Director of Research. After the ceremonies, the tribute to the two men continued into the night as brother after brother lined up to congratulate such deserving brothers of Delta Upsilon.

DU Volunteer of the Quarter

, , D e l t a Upsilon helped me, so it is only right for me to give back to help DU." What a fantastic way to explain what is our bound responsibility to Delta Upsilon as alumni. Such a response is indicative of what fuels Brother Charlie Kavanagh 's desire to give back to DU. "I see the chapter as having great potential to build the future leaders of our society. It takes work from both the undergraduates and the alumni to make it work. I am energized by knowing others care, and by seeing positive results." Brother Kavanagh first came in contact with DU as a lO-year old when he went to the California Chapter house to visit his cousin Norm Solari, California ' 56, before the California-Stanford football game. He continued to visit the chapter when his brother Don Kavanagh, California '59, joined the Fraternity. It was only natural for him to follow in the family tradition. His enlisting in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War intelTupted the civil engineerin a major 's schooling. After the war, he returned to Berkele~ to complete his degree. After working for several large companies as an engineer, he opened his own engineering firm in 1983. In 1996, Kavanagh was invited to share his expertise as an engineer at a special meeting of the California alumni to gear up for the chapter's 100th anniversary. The house was in need of a sprinkler system. His involvement in that successful fundraising project led to his election as the alumni president, an office that he still holds. "As busy as I was," Kavanagh says, "I just couldn 't say no. " Brother Kavanagh said that with all of the changes going on in our social and economic institutions, it is more critical than ever for alumni to be a stabilizing resource. "Involved alumni" he says, "can interact with and inspire the young leaders of tomorrow, make friends from many generations and professions, grow personally, and have fun doing it. The fundamental principles of Delta Upsilon are as valid today as they were over 150 years ago; those traditions of the past continue to help shape the future ." Charlie Kavanagh is indeed a fine example of the Ft路.at~rnity's ideals, and an important part of Delta Upsilon 's mission to build better men .

Puddle Pull Still Going Strong at Miami very fall semester, the Greek community at Miami University gears up for Greek Week. While everyone likes to win events, there is one event that fraternities and sororities want to win the most, and that is Puddle Pull. They begin practicing weeks in advance just so they can be called Puddle Pull Champions. Most people have no idea what Puddle Pull is, but if you are Greek at Miami, you know exactly what it is. Over 50 years ago, Frank Dodd, Miami '49, started the event. It is a modified tug of war with skill and strategy involved. A caller, who tells them what to do and when to do it, leads each team . Years ago, anyone on campus could field a team, but as time went on it became a Greek Week event and it is now for fraternity and sorority members only. Every year, DU brothers pair up with Kappa Kappa Gamma to host the event. Countless hours are spent setting up for the big day, and many nights are spent practicing. The Miami Chapter noticed the popularity of Puddle Pull and now uses it for a philanthropy event in the spring.


After fraternities and sororities initiate their new members, they can take part in new member Puddle Pull by paying a fee. All of the proceeds are then given to a charity chosen by the brothers. DU has a lot of pride in being able to call Puddle Pull their own. It has become a Miami University tradition and will be for many years to come. Not only does everyone get enjoyment out of watching and participating in it, but it also benefits the surrounding community. For more information on Puddle Pull or Miami Chapter philanthropy, visit their web site at

Central Florida Chapter Wins Homecoming Competition ollowing an enthusiastic kickoff of the 2001-02 school year, the men of the Central Florida Chapter worked diligently to further enhance Delta Upsilon's position at the University of Central Florida as well as in the Orlando community.


The chapter set out to accomplish several goals this year, one of which was to win the UCF Homecoming competition. During the Homecoming "Knightmare" festivities of October 15-20, the team of Delta Upsilon, Delta Gamma, and Lambda Theta Phi won 1st place in the Black and Gold sign

competition, 2nd place in the UCF Parade, and 4th in the Skit Knight competition. The chapter completed the week by bringing the overall I st place Homecoming Trophy back to Delta Upsilon for the fourth timein the chapter's six-year history.



Annual Financial Report by the Treasurer


elta Upsilon continues to be on a solid financial footing. However, due to investments in programs for our undergraduate brothers as well as a significant decline in the value of the Permanent Trust Fund, year-end assets stand at $2,747,000, a decrease of $786,000.

The Permanent Trust Fund experienced a loss of $337,000 this past year, a decline of 13%. For comparison purposes, the widely watched S&P 500 stock index was down 15% over the same period. The fund continues to be managed by Brother Maury Mandel, Chicago '55, and we owe him a debt of gratitude for his service to our Fraternity.

Annual Programming Cost Per Undergraduate Member $500 400 300 200 100 0 '------

The balance of the decrease can be understood as resulting from higher investments in the lives of our undergraduate brothers. First, the Board granted $100,000 to the DU Educational Foundation to create the McQuaid Scholarship Endowment. In its first year, three scholarships of $2,500 were awarded to one DU graduate student, William Lawton, Nebraska '01, and two DU undergraduate students, Corbin Navis, Kansas State '02, and Jonathan Seigel, Denison '02. Second, the Fraternity launched the FourWord program, a valuable personal development tool that supports our core purpose - Building Better Men. This program includes training resources, online web-based tools, and staffing, funded by grants by the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation, and costs approximately $120,000 a year to operate. Third, we have added a full-time Director of Alunmi Services who is focused on developing strong relationships between our undergraduate chapters and DU 's over 55,000 living alumni. Spending on alunmi programming increased by $75,000 over the previous year.







Investment in Building Better Men The core purpose of Delta Upsilon is Building Better Men. In support of this purpose, our professional staff, under the leadership of Abe Cross, Executive Director of Delta Upsilon, continues to execute exciting programming that meets the challenge of developing leaders within Delta Upsilon for the 2 1st century. Progranm1ing dollars per undergraduate member were $405 in fiscal 2000-01. The substantial increase of 17% over the previous year is due to the rollout of the FOUl路Word program.

Funding Programming Growth In order to support DU's enhanced and expanded programming, revenue growth is essential. Revenue growth has come and will continue to come from three sources: 1) Undergraduate Fees - Individual member fees were not

Fourth, we continue to invest resources in planting and growing new chapters. In the past year chapters have begun operations again at San Diego State University and Washington State University. Costs associated with reestablishing these chapters as well as other increases in programming expenses accounted for the balance of the decrease in Fraternity assets.



increased during the 2000-01 fiscal year. For the upcoming year, the Fraternity accepted the recommendation of the Undergraduate Advisory Board to increase fees. This fee increase will help the Fraternity respond to the costs of new programs and services. 2) Permanent Trust Fund - this fund with assets of $2.032 million, provides additional support to the Fraternity's operations. During fiscal 2000-01, $178,000 was transfelTed from the Permanent Trust Fund to the General Operating Fund of the Fraternity for educational programming.

Charles Evans Hughes DUEL Program n 1981, M rs. E lizabeth H ughes Gossett, daughter of Charles Evans Hughes: Colgate ~ Brown 1881, donated .a gift t~at has been 20 years III the maklllg. Mrs . Gossett envlSloned WIth her gift an endowed fellowship that both honors her father and provides assistance to undergraduate brothers to attend leadership conferences and other leadership-based programs. After reviewing the purpose and criterion of the gift, it was determined by the Foundation's Board of Trustees that Mrs . Gossett's gift aligns perfectly as an endowment for the Delta Upsilon Emerging Leaders (DUEL) Program. The DU Emerging Leaders Program was designed for the younger leaders of a chapter (freshmen and sophomores). Participants receive customized trai ning in leadership philosophies, group dynamics, confrontation, service learning, public speaking, and motivation. The Emerging Leaders program helps new members explore their personal leadership styles and values, and trai ns them to be resources for their chapter and the Fraternity. Mrs. Gossett's original gift is now worth well over $50,000, but in order to permanently endow the Charles Evans Hughes DUEL program, the Foundation still needs to raise an additional $20,000 thi s year. To donate to this program, please mark your checks on the envelope provided in this Quarterly with the word DUEL and the Foundation will make sure that your gift goes toward honoring this great brother.

DU Provides a Man with "As it did for me, Delta Upsilon helps to provide a foundation for young college men and their lives. Delta Upsilon teaches us how to be mannerly and gives us the social skills that some of us do not possess when we first arrive at college. From the simple skills of how to dress properly, dine with others, meet people, and simple lessons in etiquette, DU is able to transform boys into gentlemen. I believe that truly follows the Fraternity's motto of building better men. "By teaching through its principles, DU provides a man with values, a social education, and molds him into a more polished person. In much of the same way our craftsmen work with silver, DU rubs the tarnish off of a person to reveal the shining brilliance that he already possesses. "Delta Upsilon also provides essential leadership training. In my experience, one must have self-assurance in leadership. We must be vulnerable, willing to accept criticism, and to possess a sense of warmth to show we are approachable. That is why I feel that leadership training is one of the most important things that DU provides, and why I am wholeheartedly willing to support the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation, and let me not forget, my own alma mater chapter and its needs. "One of my philosophies is people first, technology second. In the same manner, we as DUs need to be concerned about others first. As ind ividuals and especially as brothers, we all need to support and help each other. That alone is one of the truest aspects of brotherhood."
