Another Wonderful Year

As I write this, Pi Kappa Phi has just completed another wonderful year. And, in retrospect, I find there are many things for which I am grateful and owe my deep appreciation. Last December, as we commemorated our fraternity's sixty-first anniversary, I was reminded of our dept of gratitude to those fine men, Brothers Fogarty, Mixson and Kroeg who gave us our beloved fraternity whose noble ideas and principles help to make us better men. For the opportunities which have been mine to be of service to our fraternity, I have been most appreciative. To date, it has been my privilege to have visited forty-five of our chapters since you elected me your national president. The cordial hospitality you have shown me has been most heart-warming. I have been deeply touched that, behind those Pi Kapp badges, so many hearts beat as one. I have been proud of the manner in which the older brothers have been so helpful to our neophytes who are away from home for the first time. The re-evaluation of our ritual by so many of our chapters has been responsible for a spiritual upsurge within our fraternity, the value of which cannot be measured.

2

We are justly proud of the attractive and permanent new home for our national office in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is the realization of a dream. We are blessed with an excellent executive secretary in Brother Durward Owen for whom we all hold the greatest affection. We are grateful for the rapid recovery he has made.from his recent injury. We are also fortunate in having four fine traveling counselors. I marvel at the amount of work they accomplish! Those who serve with me on our national council are capable and dedicated men who are intent upon building an even greater Pi Kappa Phi. Revived interest among so many alumni and their generous financial contributions have been most gratifying. Enthusiasm exhibited by our undergraduates is at its highest! So why shouldn't 1966 be another glorious year for Pi Kappa Phi? I am sure that all of us are grateful for the opportunities to help make it so. Most fraternally yours,

Mel

Letters to the Editor Dear Sir: Thank you very much for the extra copy of the August Star and Lamp in which you carried the piece about my planned transition from Dean to Professor. I thoroughly enjoyed administration during all the years I was engaged in it; and I would add that now I am out of it I am having a wonderful time "just teaching" and writing now and then about things of my own choosing. No budgets, no policy matters, no personal problems, no committees, no "urgent" meetings . . . inescapable in administration. Instead I can (and must) use my slide rule for something besides figuring gradepoint averages and operating ratios — and indeed I find it challenging and rewarding to work with students in this mutual effort of actively learning together. I wouldn't change anything even if I could. Sincerely yours, F. T. Mavis

Dear Sir:

'Tis a pleasure to enclose my check for $10.00 as Voluntary Alumni dues. Then, thank you for the reference to me in the Brooklyn-Alphi Xi news on page 13 in the August issue of The Star and Lamp of Pi Kappa Phi. Best of all, to me, was to read the story, "Welcome To Your New Home." This made me feel very proud of my fraternity and its progress! Many years have passed before this dream has been realized but it is so good to know that we, at last, have our own home. Congratulations to you and all the brothers who have done so much to make a dream come true. My wife and I did write a song, "A Dream of Pi Kappa Phi." The "Home" surely is a "Dream." The pictures are so good that I feel like getting into my car and come for a "look see" for myself. As I type this, in my studio, there is a 35-mile an hour wind blowing snow, and snow, (we have 2 inches already) and more snow. So ... I'll postpone my trip. Enough of this and I'll end with all the best wishes to you, your staff, and brothers, wherever they may be, for continued success in their efforts to make Pi Kappa Phi the best fraternity there is, or will be ... Fraternally yours, Lawrence J. Bolvig Colonel—USAR—Sig C

Dear Sir: I don't know whether the August Star and Lamp was late getting to my desk, or I was just late finding time to getting around to reading it, but in any case I enjoyed it thoroughly. You are certainly to be congratulated on the handsome new Headquarters Building, and its luxury will probably soon make you forget old Sumter. May I also congratulate you on the splendid editorial appraisal of Pi Kapp's 60th year. It was written with real feeling and warmth, and I am sure that others have been as impressed with it as I. With every good wish for continued fine fraternal relations, Sincerely, Henry Q. Middendorf Dean of Students Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn FEBRUARY, 1966

Chi Chapter's Viet Nam Demonstration: In Appreciation

Imoreland, n a letter mailed to General William C. West-

Commanding General of United States Forces in Viet Nam,members of Pi Kappa Phi's Chi Chapter at Stetson University have expressed their appreciation of the efforts of American fighting men to prevent the spread of Communism in the world. It was signed by Steve Wilkson, Chi Archon. The members of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity at Stetson University are very much aware of the serious conditions presently facing you and our fighting men in Viet Nam. We have fathers and other family members, fraternity brothers, and many friends, serving there with you. We also recognize the fact that if wede we not presently enrolled in college, most of us would be serving there or in the United States in some branch of the military service. In fact, some of our group, who are enrolled in ROTC, are even now preparing for this eventuality immediately following graduation. If the above has not already indicated so, let us assure you and your men that we have absolutely no sympathy for the loud, small minority of college students and others in the United States who have made headlines through protests of our country's actions in Viet Nam. This maladjusted, pitiful group has presented an erroneous picture to the world, with their draft card burnings, protest marches and similar ill-considered actions. We thank God that they do not speak for the great majority, and believe that you and our fighting men know this. It is unfortunate that the news media fails to see that in publicizing the actions of these pseudo-Americans, they are encouraged in their childish demonstrations.

The message we want to get across I., ,,11 and we hope you will use every available means of communication to see that it also reaches every member of our American forces in Viet Nam — is that we are appreciative of what you are doing. We know our American neighbors are dying every day that we and others of our generation may have the opportunity to complete our educations, that right may prevail in this far-off nation, and that the threat of communism to the world of today and tomorrow may be defeated. Many of you have been pulled from other endeavors to fight for all of us, just as were most of our fathers and brothers in World War II and even more recent conflicts. Some of us may not completely agree ith our country's involvement in South Viet Nam, but because we believe in our country, we will all support this involvement. As a fraternity group, we understand and support the reasoning in having allegiance to a cause, to brotherhood. Your efforts, as representatives of all of us deserve and have our feeling of kinship as well as our appreciation and sincere prayers. We are for you, and every one of your men, 100%, and will anxiously look forward to the day when peace is restored and you are reunited with your families.

In a letter of appreciation, sent to the Stetson chapter, General Westmoreland replied: Your 7 December letter expressing support by the members of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity for the efforts of our armed forces in Vietnam is deeply appreciated. I have forwarded the letter to the Command Information Officer for dissemination to our troops via our military newspaper. On behalf of all the servicemen in this command, I extend my heartfelt thanks to each member of the Pi Kappa Fraternity for this encouraging display of support.

Brother Elmer Jost was pledge to Pi Kappa Phi on Oct. 5, 1964. After serving as a pledge, with no special privileges, he was initiated on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, 1965. As a pledge Elmer was in charge of the pledge class project and directed the construction of an outstanding outdoor barbecue grill for Chi chapter. At the first election of officers for Chi chapter following his initiation, Elmer was elected Treasurer. Chi chapter knows a good thing when it sees it, therefore Elmer has been re-elected Treasurer. Chi chapter's annual Christmas party for a local orphanage was blessed with a built in Santa Claus, Brother Elmer himself. No more dedicated and determined undergraduate is to be found in P K P than Brother Elmer Jost, "the man who came to college."

.The Man Who Came To College

••

he powers of concentration and retention are Tthe biggest obstacles

to overcome when one returns to school after an absence of literally decades. And if the long-forgotten education didn't include a high school diploma and you're a 52year old grandfather of ten, it's not duck soup! With those obstacles in his way when he entered Stetson University last fall, Elmer Jost, of Clermont, finished his freshman year with a "good" record behind him. REGISTERED as an accounting and pre-law major, his first semester grades were "C" average, which he raised the second semester to pull in a couple of "B's." His schedule included 16 hours the first semester and 15 the second, with six 8 a.m. classes weekly, leaving him little time for study except at night. If fraternities are thought of as being strictly for the young, we reckoned without Elmer who pledged Pi Kappa Phi last fall, was initiated in January and is now chapter treasurer. A retired investment counsellor on Wall Street, Elmer does a top-notch job with the fraternity's finances. 10

Asked what he does with his spare time and keeping in good physical shape (which bewhiskered, over 6-feet tall, Elmer does) he said that for every hour spent in class he spends three in study. As for exercise, he gets that climbing three flights of stairs in Elizabeth Hall four times daily, and he told us "if I ever get rich my first act will be to donate an escalator to the hall." ALONG WITH his academic work he has kept up his Kiwanis Club membership in DeLand and, a lifetime member of the Brooklyn Kismet Temple, has joined the DeLand Shrine Club. There is another member of the Jost family on the Stetson campus, daughter Margaret, enrolled as a freshman at the same time as her father. A history major, Margaret lives in one of the girls' dorms, but sees her father occasionally on campus. She was chosen Coed of the Week recently. He has three other married daughters. WE SPENT a day in DeLand with the Josts, mother, father and daughter. Freshman Elmer wasn't treated as one of advanced years, but as just another student. We toured his fraternity house and the university buildings, and had cokes in the Hat Rack, student hangout. It was always "Hiya, Elmer," not "Hello, Mr. Jost." THE

Below right—As a pledge, Elmer entertained a sidewalk crowd on Stunt Night at Daytona Beach.

Swinging the stout walking stick he sports (for local color, he says) we were hard pressed to keep up with this perennially young grandfather. Pausing briefly for Elmer to put his arm around the Stetson Hatter, campus landmark, we queried him on his reactions to college life after almost a full year. HE ANSWERED "I am more confident now and I love it, I love it! I love campus life, exposure to the young people, and the professors even though we're at opposite ends of the stick politically. It's all tremendously stimulating." His mainstay throughout has been his wife, Lillian, a graduate of Vassar and of Columbia College of Librarians, now working as an associate librarian at the new duPont-Ball Library on the Stetson campus. Typing his notes, keeping his records, and always with any needed words of encouragement, Lillian will graduate when Elmer does with the coveted PHT Degree (Pushing Hubby Through)! (Ed.

BETA KAPPA, GEORGIA STATE

Pi Kapp On Campus

Beta Kappa was pleased to host Atlanta area alumni and Iota Chapter for a joint Founders' Day Banquet this fall. National President Mel Metcalfe was the guest of honor, featured speaker, and the highlight of the evening with his inspiring and entertaining address. The banquet was the culmination of one of the most successful and eventful quarters in Beta Kappa's history.

It's What's Happening In The Undergraduate Chapters

Adding impetus to our already growing spirit, the executive committee returned from this past summer's Pi Kapp College with many ideas and suggestions that were implemented with a great deal of success. With special emphasis on academic study and work to improve the chapter's status on campus, Beta Kappa broke the Greek "status quo" here at State by placing third in the scholastic rankings of fraternities this fall. And last year Pi Kappa Phi was ranked last among the fraternities at Georgia State!

Beginning with Beta Kappa Chapter At Georgia State College, and Beta Psi Chapter at Tennessee Wesleyan College - Contributors of this month's Outstanding Chapter Reports.

12

This change in status was further strengthened in Fall Rush. Beta Kappa pledged 22 of the most soughtafter men at Georgia State. Congratulations go to Rush Chairman Lance Gheesling, whose leadership and coordination made this effort a success. Many of the new pledges, who had also received bids from other fraternities on campus, admitted that it was a hard decision, but that the spirit of growth and brotherhood evident in this chapter was the deciding factor. With these pledges and six new initiates, Beta Kappa now has a membership of 58. The next big event for the chapter was our first annual Bacchus Dance, sponsored by Beta Kappa to promote better inter-Greek relations. All sororities and fraternities on campus were invited and a Bacchus god and goddess were crowned by the Pi Kapps. Happily, the highlight of the dance was the crowning of Brother Lynwood James (6'3"; 293 lbs.) and pledge Ray Hurd (6'; 230 lbs.) as god and goddess of the dance. They were an impressive pair. Over 500 Greeks attended the dance— an unquestionable success. In the field of community service, Beta Kappa sponsored the first annual "Feed the Children" drive. The Pi Kapps invited all sororities and fraternities to compete, offering prizes in two fields: for collecting the most food, and for presenting the food in the most attractive display (this had a special appeal to the sororities, who competed vigorously for the award plaque). The award for the most food collected was a joint party THE

sponsored by Beta Kappa Chapter. Through this effort, we were able to collect over $400 worth of food to distribute to local orphans. As chairman of the drive, Brother Andy Campbell did an excellent job. Beta Kappa next entered two service projects sponsored by the college administration. The first was a contest among the campus Greeks to sell the most raffle tickets (percentage wise and number-wise) in a drive for an athletic scholarship fund. We won in both categories, selling more tickets than all sororities and fraternities combined! For our effort here we won a color TV console to match the furnishings in our chapter suite. Next Beta Kappa had more than 80 per cent of its members support the Atlanta Jaycees' "Empty Stocking Fund." Our brothers and pledges collected from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Empty Stocking Sunday. Brothers Wayne Stokes and Bob Hope were co-chairmen for both these fund drives, and did a fine job. In other events, Beta Kappa made a sustained effort to win the confidence of our alumni and the school administration. Academically, five Pi Kapps made the Dean's List, while the over-all chapter grade point average improved again for the third straight quarter. This improvement came despite the fact that over 90 per cent of our members work part time at night to earn their own way through school. Financial responsibility and independence were demonstrated as Beta Kappa finished paying for its chapter suite and furnishings at a total cost of over $3,000. This was done without soliciting a single dollar from the alumni. Also, $500 in accounts receivable were reduced to $14 in three months. This was done through the hard work of Treasurer Brad Doss, who used a system of fines recommended by National. After a very expensive quarter Beta Kappa also managed, through careful budgeting, to add a substantial surplus to its building fund. With these funds the chapter voted to purchase land this spring. This purchase, too, will be made without financial aid from the alumni in the hope of gaining their confidence for future aid in building a house on our land.

((FEES THE CIIILIREi

The work invested in these programs has paid off in handsome dividends. Beta Kappa vows that this is not the end, but rather a shift from second gear to high gear in chapter growth. Beta Kappa gratefully acknowledges the advice and encouragement of the National Office, which has been of invaluable help in our growth. F E B R U A R Y,

BETA PSI, TENNESSEE WESLEYAN "PI K APPS HAVE MORE FUN than people" is the motto adopted by Beta Psi of Pi Kappa Phi, and the Tennessee Wesleyan College campus rang with these words as the famed Pi Kapp spirit returned to campus this fall to be channeled into useful projects as well as fun and games. The brothers returned to school and to fraternity life for fall quarter with a new house, which is the largest on campus, to spur them on. A mammoth task lay in front of them. For the first time on Wesleyan's campus the Greeks were to engage in an open rush, and Pi Kappa Phi was faced with a severe power shortage. The two other fraternities on campus were considerably older, larger, and more experienced in the fine art of rushing than the Pi Kapps. But this challenge was met head-on and the brothers of Beta Psi Chapter rose to the occasion and outpledged both the other fraternities. On the night of fomal pledging 31 new men were introduced to pledgeship in Pi Kappa Phi. The story does not stop here, however, as more new men were pledged as the quarter drew to a close. Shortly after pledging, the new Rose of Pi Kappa Phi was notified of her selection by the harmonious ringing of 55 Pi Kapp voices singing the "Rose" and "Pi Kappa Phi Girl." Beta Psi is proud to announce Miss Rachel Edds as the 1965-66 Pi Kapp rose. Rachel is a member of Kappa Delta Sorority, and she is a resident of Madison, Tenn. Her court consists of Connie Beaver, Joan Mynatt, Nancy Ketchersid, and Hilda Martin. The brothers are proud of these radiant ladies of Pi Kappa Phi for all who meet them remember Pi Kappa Phi as it is reflected by their charm and poise. The many talents of the new pledge class first became apparent as the brothers prepared for the rigorous intramural football season. Pi Kappa Phi made a gallant effort for the first place trophy but clinched second place as we were beaten only in the tournament by a crack team of independent men. Leading Pi Kapp ground gainers were brothers Don Forshay and Joe Eldridge and pledges Vic Penn, Don Best, and Don Nation. The defense was led by pledges Rick Stanford, Ray Iberson, Byron Harmon, and Brother Joe Eldridge. Later in the quarter it was discovered that the pledge class was harboring some politicians. Two Beta Psi pledges captured freshman class offices: Don Best was chosen men's representative, and Don Nation was elected vice president of the freshman class. The Pledges do not have a monopoly on politics, however, as Brother Joe Eldridge is vice president of the student body. Joe is also the "Dream Man" of the Alpha Xi Delta sorority on campus. Brother Tom Gutridge is president of Circle K Club. Brother Dick Burdette is vice president of the senior class, and Brother Jim Whedbee is both president of Chi Rho and secretary of Circle K Club. In addition to his other offices and honors, Brother Burdette, along with Tom Gutridge have been named to Who's Who In American Colleges and Universities. The third annual Pi Kappa Phi Pancake Supper was held in November, and with much preparation and good support by the campus it was an unprecedented success. More than 250 Wesleyan students, well over half the resident students, turned out for the event. Prior to the Thanksgiving holidays, the Pi Kappa took time from their busy schedule to engage in a door to door campaign to collect food for the underprivileged in the local area. The food drive was well advertised on the local radio station and in Daily Post Athenian. The drive was well received by the townspeople. Over 800 pounds of food were collected in in a matter of hours. The name of Pi Kappa Phi is a respected one in Athens, Tenn., largely because of public service projects such as this.food drive. Brother Larry DeVault deserves much credit for the excellent job he did in planning, organizing and advertising this food drive. A similar project was planned for Christmas. Brother Don ForShay was in charge of a "fill the stocking

drive." These stockings were distributed to hospitalized persons during the Christmas holidays. Beta Psi Chapter owes much of its present good fortune to the knowledge and foresight of two individuals. One of these men is Brother John Eckman, an English professor at Tennessee Wesleyan who was initiated as a post-graduate member last year. Since that time his help, both materially and idealistically, has been a major factor in building Beta Psi to the level of accomplishment which it now enjoys. The other man is Brother Larry Hines, the chapter's alumni adviser. Through his guidance a sizable debt was liquidated, and Beta Psi is finally operating in the black. Cupid has been at work picking off the brothers and pledges of Beta Psi. Brothers who are lavaliered are: Steve Davidson to Susan Bardill of Knoxville, Tenn., Steve Ownby to Kathy Zirkle of Kingston, Tenn., Howard Lamon to Diane Klene of Maryville, Tenn., and pledges Charles Sweat to Suzana Smith of Knoxville, Tenn., and Chris Porter to Janice Crye of Cleveland, Tenn. Brothers who hear wedding bells are: Dick Burdette, who is engaged to Jill Rogers of Rogersville, Tenn.; Harry Howard, engaged to Nancy Ketchersid of Rich Creek, Va., and Richard Reynolds, engaged to Marie Dozier of Knoxville, Tenn. Pi Kapps do have more fun than people.

ALPHA, COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE year Alpha captured the honors at the annual Pep Parade. The parade marks the beginning of basketball season and generally gets things going with a bang. The Pi Kapp contingent was spirited by Alpha's own Dixieland band. Our lovely Rose Queen, Miss Barbara Clifton, led the way. After a summer of hectic disorder and disrepair, the chapter house has finally taken on a more finished and "liveable" appearance. The repairs include mainly a complete painting and cleaning of the interior. We are quite proud of the newly panelled hallway and recreation room. Another major project was making room for the increasing number of brothers living in the house. In October Alpha won the annual Fall Field Festival consisting of various track and field events. This is the second consecutive year this honor has been won by the chapter. On November 20, John Davis, traveling counselor, paid us a visit — two days early and unannounced. Brother Davis made a thorough study and analysis of the chapter's workings and status. We look forward to his return. December 10 we held our annual Founders' Day Banquet. The speaker was the Rev. Jesse Sparks, an alumnus and past archon of the chapter. A sight to quicken the pulse of any Pi Kapp was the presence of Brother Simon Fogarty. Brother Fogarty has been a faithful and unswerving bulwark behind "his" chapter through the years and is the living embodiment of the spirit and loyalty that are the lifeblood of Pi Kappa Phi. On November 19, two new brothers were initiated into the active chapter. Neal Golden, Jr., was initiated as an alumnus. Brother Golden teaches at Hemingway (S.C.) High School. Brother James Brevard Neely, Jr., a sophomore, was also initiated at this time. THE

BETA, PRESBYTERIAN COLLEGE BETA HAD A GOOD RUSH SEASON resulting in 19 pledges. The spirit here is at an all time high. Not only do the pledges out-number the brothers, but their spirit has given Beta the shot-in-the-arm it has needed. And this came about without the use of bottled spirit. We just went undefeated in intramural football to boot. Brothers and pledges had identical corsages made up for our mothers to wear at Parent's Day. They consisted of a red rose; blue, gold, and white ribbon; and a large blue and white diamond with "Pi Kapp Mother" in gold. They were an instant hit. Mothers could recognize each other on the campus, and the corsages caused quite a bit of comment among the faculty and administration as no other fraternity had ever remembered the mothers in such a way before. After the football game all the parents of Pi Kapps came by the room for coffee and Cokes. Even the president of Presbyterian spent an hour with us. The faculty has stated that this is the best pledge class to ever pledge any fraternity at P. C. GAMMA, CALIFORNIA "Excelsior" remains the motto of Gamma Chapter this year. First, we have moved into our new house at 2434 Warring Street on Cal's fraternity row. The house is the finest Gamma has had since the twenties. Second, in spite of generally disastrous rush conditions at Cal this year, as a result of which two fraternities and three sororities folded, we have met our pledge class quota and our new house is filled to capacity. Third, emphasis on scholarship will continue. For two straight years we have set new scholarship records for all living groups on campus. We are pushing this year to break our past records. We have improved our position in athletics and are confident of being among the top 15 fraternities — among 45 — in the intramural standings. Socially we expect our Blue Hawaii and Rose balls to continue to grow in campus prestige. Our Rose Queen receives a trip to Las Vegas, the most elaborate accolade for any "queen" on campus. In this period of general rebellion and revolt among so many college students we of Gamma are proud to reaffirm our commitment to the ideals of Christian conduct exemplified in the Southern traditions of our national fraternity. We urge all Gamma alumni — as well as alumni of other chapters who are now living in California — to assure us of your continued support and interest. Send us names of fine young men who want to preserve our traditions. And persuade them to come to Cal — a great school — and help us in this endeavor.

A LETTER TO ALL PI KAPPA PHI ALUMNI AND UNDERGRADS You have doubtless been disturbed by the reports of riots and rebellions at the University of California at Berkeley. Perhaps you believe that this school is composed only of beatniks and socialists. In truth, however, a small — but growing — minority has succeeded in giving the whole University a black eye. The tail has been wagging the dog; but no longer! The time has come for the law-abiding citizen and the responsible student to show the country and the world that "we are sick, unto death" of this madness on our campus and this monstrous warping of the meaning of academic freedom. We of Gamma Chapter here at Cal are in favor of education and enlightenment, but we are not in favor of circuses that masquerade as serious debates, on rebellious as outlets for social boredom. We ask, we beg, your help NOW — encourage some decent high school Senior of good intelligence and scholarship, and also of good common sense, to apply to Cal. Offer to help on their tuition if necessary — but turn the young person toward Cal. Don't let the beards and pickets scare off the cream of American youth. Or, perhaps you can persuade some college freshman or sophomore to transfer to Cal, even if you are that student. If you are thinking of graduate school, apply to Cal. The opportunities are tremendous for the best education you could possibly receive. Your influence, along with that of other concerned alumni,,can help swing the balance on this campus back toward the middle of the scale, back to the mainstream of American student traditions. The University of California is, we believe, the greatest university in the country. A degree from this hallowed institution is truly gold-plated. Help us, then, with your concerned efforts, to untarnish the name of so great a school, and to restore to her the kind of student conditions that prevailed before the deluge of beards and pickets, of socialists and exhibitionists. Of course you should put in a good word for us and indeed for the whole fraternity-sorority system at Cal. The Greek way of life is a bulwark against the egalitarian forces that have helped bring "everyone down to the common denominator" and which abhor any kind of excellence. Prove now your citizenship and your own sense of responsibility for the kind of college you and your children will have. Time will not wait for you, March the first is the deadline for receiving completed application forms for admission to the University for the fall of this year. Get busy with that young person, now, and have him apply to the Office of Admissions, 127 Sproul Hall, University of California, Berkeley, Calif. 94720.

ZETA, WOFFORD COLLEGE WE AT ZETA RETURNED THIS FALL with a highly optimistic attitude. We undertook rush with an enthusiastic spirit that proved to be second to none as Zeta pledged 31 new men, the largest pledge class on campus. Brother Ralph Phillips was elected vice president of the student body. Brother Paul Pittman was elected to Blue Key, Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities, Scabbard and Blade and Phi Beta Kappa. And Brother John Womack was chosen editor of the yearbook. Eight men were initiated into the brotherhood in October. They are: John Davis of Columbia, S.C.; Gary Hoskins of Poughkeepsie, N.Y.; Tom Key of Roanoke, Va.; Lee Knight of Saranac Lake, N.Y.; Robert McCurdy of Norristown, Pa.; Mike O'Tuel of Bennetsville, S.C.; Milton Scarboro of Gaffney, S.C.; and Mike Zaffke of Jacksonville, Fla. Zeta won the Wofford intramural football championship, with a season record of nine victories and one loss. It was the second straight football championship for Zeta, which won the title game 26-0. And Brother Rusty Hudson, our quarterback, was named to the all-star intramural team for the third consecutive year. With these impressive records, we at Zeta are looking forward to even gerater things as the year progresses. IOTA, GEORGIA TECH. IN SCHOLARSHIP, IOTA PLACED THIRD on campus for the 1964-65 school year. After placing first last fall, Iota followed up with seventh place for winter quarter and third place for spring. In IFC points Iota took fourth place in competition with the other 26 Tech fraternities. The IFC points were awarded for scholarship, athletics, charities, and campus activities. Iota is already off to a good start in this year's IFC competition. It has already won its league in both volleyball and football, and received points for scholarship improvement. Many of Iota's brothers are active in campus organizations. Among these are Tau Beta Pi, Brierean Society, I M Honor Society, Phi Kappa Phi, and Scabbard and Blade. Iota pledged 11 men during the past two quarters and eight men were initiated during these months. KAPPA, NORTH CAROLINA THE PRIMARY GOAL ESTABLISHED by Kappa's brothers for this year can be summed up in a single word — improvement! This goal is to be sought in two areas: The fraternity itself, and campus-wide activities. Efforts to accomplish our goal in the first of these began in September when all the brothers returned to begin renovating the house. The results have been amazing, and the house now looks 100 per cent better! Another accomplishment was the pledging of seven fine new men in early October rush — a real accomplishment with North Carolina now on a deferred rush system! Fulfilling our second desire have been Brothers William Nucciarone, who is running for vice president of this year's junior class; Bernard Dotsen, who is secretary of the Inter-Fraternity Council; Larry Roadman, a FEBRUARY, 1966

cheerleader; and several brothers who are orientation counselors, helping the new freshmen on campus. The men of Kappa have high hopes of making this our finest year ever. With the constant support and backing of our alumni, this dream should be realized. MU, DUKE THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE FALL semester for Mu Chapter was its 50th Anniversary Celebration. The festivities opened on Saturday December 4th with a steak dinner at the Holiday Inn Downtown in Durham. National President Metcalfe delivered the keynote address to a large group of brothers and alumni. Dr. W. R. Pitts of Charlotte presented the chapter with a beautiful color picture of the new National Headquarters in Charlotte. This fine gift is presently occupying a prominent place in our chapter room. Saturday night there was a cocktail party after which everyone adjourned to the DukeClemson Basketball game. Mu is once again ably represented on the campus. Pi Kappa hold the following campus offices: Bill Hight is president of the Men's Student Government, Bill Kennedy is the fifth Pi Kapp to be president of the Y.M.C.A., Reid Ervin is vice chairman of the Student Union, Alex Bell is a member of the Judicial Board, Ron Gates is president of the Glee Club, and Jeff Lewis is president of the Pre-Med Society. Alan Cone, as Head Cheerleader, ably assisted by Sandy Mason, led the student body to a new high in school spirit. Academically, Andy Clayton represents the fraternity as a Phi Beta Kappa. We initiated a fine fall class of new brothers on December 5th. Howard Beasley, Alan Cone, Paul Messick, Rick Myers, Lee Steckmest, Dick Turbiville, and John Wickersham made up for what they lacked in numbers by showing great spirit as they challenged the brotherhood to an eating contest and a volleyball game. These men, with their outstanding drive and hard work will be a valuable addition to the chapter as we move into Rush. The climax of the fall social schedule was our annual Rose Ball. It was held at the Whispering Pines Motor Lodge in Whispering Pines, N.C. Miss Kathy Habberstick was selected Mu's Rose for 1965-66. We also had beer parties with the Alpha Delta Pi's, the Pi Beta Phi's, and the Tri-Delts as well as four combo parties. Everyone is looking forward to the "Roaring 20's" Party, which should be a fine conclusion to a very successful social schedule. Mu Chapter had a dinner meeting with members of the faculty in November as part of its program to promote better relations between faculty and students here at Duke. These dinners provide a relaxed atmosphere where informal discussions can be carried on with the faculty members. We entertained a group of underpriviledged children from the Edgemont Community Center in our annual Christmas Party for them. Besides giving presents, the Pi Kapps responded eagerly to a drive to send blood to Viet Nam with 30 brothers participating. After a busy semester, and after a brief bout with exams, Mu Chapter will go into what promises to be one of the most successful Rush programs in years. 17


NU, NEBRASKA NU CHAPTER OPENED THE FIRST semester of the school year with more on the house rolls than has been for quite a few years. At the end of open rush, house membership stood at 27, a far cry from the three members who opened the doors a year ago. Scholastic activity has busied members and pledges alike, as we strive to maintain the average we achieved last semester, well above the AMA and right on the AllFraternity Average. Things look even better this semester. The social season opened with the Pi Kapp Coffin Party in October. Pi Kapps, guests, and a few odd ghouls turned up to enjoy the fun. Our Christmas AntiFormal (in defiance of dress-up formals) made a big hit, with the Pi Kapp beatnik Santa Claus making friends all over campus. The high point of next semester's social life will be our District Conclave with Alpha Omicron (Iowa State) and Beta Delta (Drake), with Nu chapter as host. And 1965 marked the 50th anniversary of Nu chapter. The brothers and alums celebrated with a dinner at the Congress Inn. Guests included Durward Owen, National Executive Secretary, and George Driver (Nu '19), Former National Archon. A satisfying turnout was highlighted by Brother Owen's talk on the aims of Pi Kappa Phi.

XI, ROANOKE COLLEGE THIS SEMESTER XI CHAPTER has come through with

what is considered by most to be an astounding feat in light of our past history. At an all-school assembly this semester it was Xi's pleasure to receive the Scholastic Award for the past year. To earn this award the men of Xi had to attain the highest grade average of all fraternities and sorities on campus. However, the Pi Kapps did more than this; we not only achieved the highest grade average, but also exceeded the all-men's average for the entire campus. The men of this fraternity are not content to rest on past laurals; preliminary indications are that we are approaching our academic endeavors with a very positive attitude this semester as well. We should be able to match if not exceed last years record. In the field of campus leadership Xi has also been a front runner on campus. Brother Pete Gebhard is the present president of the student body; Brother Caldwell, the vice-president of the student body; and Brother Bobbitt, the president of Blue Key. Also, Brothers Caldwell, Bobbitt, and Gebhard were chosen to represent Roanoke College in Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities; and Brothers Planavsky and Gebhard were tapped into Blue Key, national honorary leadership fraternity. And Laura Lee Mills, the pledge sweetheart, was crowned Miss Roanoke College at the homecoming dance. At the beginning of this semester Xi Chapter initiated three men into the brotherhood: Len Kelly, Dennis Pennington, and Edward Bennet. (And three hours and 20 minutes after his formal initiation, Brother Kelly was pinned — probably some kind of record). On the social side, the Pi Kappa at Roanoke have had a number of successful cabin parties and several cocktail parties at local brothers' homes. Xi is making big plans for the annual Rose Ball, the 50th anniversary of Xi Chapter on May 7 (to include an alumni banquet and chapter homecoming) and the annual spring formal. Xi has shown a lot of improvement in intramural athletics, finishing third in football and fourth in crosscountry. And the future looks good with strong handball and basketball teams on hand. 111

RHO, WASHINGTON & LEE THE PI KAPP'S OF RHO CHAPTER returned from the summer to find the lodge in need of repairs. With Rush Week a little more than a week away the brothers wore their grubbiest clothes and became do-it-yourself experts with the hammer and brush. The last coat of paint had barely dried with the first wave of rushee's entered the hallowed halls. The Pi Kapps turned on their abundant charms and put on one of Rho Chapter's best Rush Weeks. The result: 19 pledges, the second largest pledge class on campus. The "true students" then settled down for a long semester at the books, conveniently interrupted by the fall football weekends. At the homecoming game, Rho's nominee, Miss Marlyn Myers, Rush Chairman, Jim Buckey's pinmate, was crowned homecoming queen. To top off a great month one of our pledges, Dave Crawley, ran a successful campaign for freshman class president. The lodge threw a victory celebration in Dave's behalf and after hailing the Clinton, Md. freshman as a rising politico, joined in singing some of the more bawdy ballards learned at Pi Kappa College. In the field of physical endeavors, the Brotherhood with the aid of the pledges, has been having an outstanding year in intramurals. Rho's gridiron wonders stunned their opponents and swept to a league championship. The Pi Kapps currently rank fourth overall on campus but with basketball season coming up we should move even farther up the ladder. For the brothers and pledges of Rho Chapter it's been a great first half and we're looking for even bigger and better things in '66. SIGMA, SOUTH CAROLINA THE BROTHERS AND PLEDGES of Sigma chapter have embarked upon a scholastic improvement program for the fall semester of 1965. Special emphasis has been placed upon freshman pledges who from past record show the most difficulty. This emphasis has been brought about through the untiring efforts of Brother Daun van Ee, who instituted a new and effective scholarship program composed of study halls, individual attention, and visits to the professors of little brothers by the brothers. Thus far the results of this new program seem to be rewwarding the efforts. The elected officers for Sigma this semester are Robert M. Jones of Rock Hill, S.C., archon; William D. Cooksey of Gaffney, S.C., treasurer; Frank Leslie Bradfield Jr. of Dillon, S.C., secretary; Daun R. van Ee of Beaufort , S.C., warden; Daniel T. Rogers Jr. of Dillon, S.C., historian; William K. Gardella of Fall River, Mass., chaplain. Sigma celebrated Founders Day on December 8, two days early, at Columbia's famed Market Restaurant. After a delicious dinner the undergraduate chapter and alumni were entertained with an interesting and humorous talk by the Honorable Woody Brooks, District President and mayor of Andrews, S.C. Awards presented at the banquet were as follows: Best Active — Bill Cooksey; Best Pledge — Charles Robinson; Distinguished Alumni Service Awards — Dr. E. H. Brown, Conrad "Raddy" Gray, and James Parler. This semester Sigma is proud to have pledged the following men: David Branch of Charleston, S.C.; Danny Collins of Williamston, S.C.; Pete Edwards of Columbia, S.C.; Randy Fields of Bennettsville, S.C.; Van Gainey of Bishopville, S.C.; Wally Jones of Sumter, S.C.; Lannie Ted Kinsler of Williamston, S.C.; Dick Monroe of Ocean City, N.J.; Bill Newsom of Arlington, Va.; Bob Paris of Washington, D.C.; Gardiner Pollich of Arlington, Va.; Charles Robinson of Virginia Beach, Va.; John Spears of Alexandria, Va. Sigma's principle aim this semester has been to raise its scholarship by devoting most of its energies in this direction. With higher scholarship Sigma looks forward to an even better rush and a stronger chapter next semester. THE

TAU, NORTH CAROLINA STATE TAU CHAPTER AT N. C. STATE University has come a long way since the end of the spring semester when they had no housemother, no cook, no houseboy, an abundance of bills, and 14 graduating seniors. By the end of the summer, Tau had acquired Mrs. May Neil as housemother and Archie Smith as cook. Nineteen pledges from Fall Rush took care of the houseboy problem and helped to fill the gap left by the graduating seniors, and a little sacrifice on the part of the brothers in the area of social activities has Tau steadily whittling down the stack of unpaid bills. Tau held a buffet supper at the first of the semester in honor of their new housemother. The other 16 fraternities on campus were represented by their presidents and housemothers who met Mrs. Neil and welcomed her to the State fraternity system. Two of Tau's brothers have been elected to office in campus organizations. Brother Dave Pruette was elected secretary of I.F.C. and Brother Jim Knight was elected treasurer of the Engineers' Council. Four brothers from last year's graduating class are continuing their education in graduate school. Brothers Jim Zimmerman and Bob Surratt are working for their M.S. degrees in civil engineering (transportation) and nuclear engineering, respectively, here at State," while Brothers Groome and Hunter are at Carolina studying for their M.S. degrees in business administration. Tau Chapter was honored at the beginning of the semester with an award from the Sigma Chi Foundation. This award is presented annually to the chapter with the highest percentage of their membership attaining their scholastic degrees during the preceeding school year. Alumni participation has been very good this semester. Tau was pleasantly surprised after the Carolina game when a busload of alumni from the Charlotte area dropped by the house. The same afternoon, several carloads of alumni from the Greensboro-Winston-Salem area also stopped in to visit. The brothers are very pleased with the interest shown by these alumni and hope that this interest will continue in the future. Tau Chapter is always open to brothers of Pi Kappa Phi. If you are in Raleigh, stop by to see the new chapter house and enjoy a little North Carolina hospitality.

Sigma men give a new pledge the glad hand.

UPSILON, ILLINOIS UPSILON STARTED THE YEAR by renewing the spirit and ambition which it has shown in the past. During registration week the Pi Kapps opened the school year by putting in a new lawn. The sod was furnished compliments of the Dad's Club.. The Chapter met the challenge of Homecoming with the game vigor. The chapter received a second place trophy for its display, depicting a football player vacuming up the Hoosier football team. Intramural sports this semester have been highlighted by a second place victory in volleyball and becoming one of the "Elite Eight" in football. Upsilon's goal in intramurals is not trophies, but the chapter tries to have a team entered in each sport offered by the intramural board. By doing this last year, Upsilon received recognition for being one of the strongest houses in intramurals. Rush this semester has not been as successful as the chapter had hoped it would be, but after a visit by traveling counselor Bill Dicks, we of Upsilon are optimistic about the number of pledges we will get by the end of the semester. Probably the biggest change Upsilon has had this year is due to our new housemother, Mrs. Mary Reedy. She is the first housemother to grace the halls of Upsilon Chapter since its founding. The Brothers seem to agree that they certainly have missed something all these years. Mrs. Reedy had been a housemother for several years at Eureka College. The chapter's new pledge class has caught the spirit of the fraternity quickly. They have already presented the Actives with a pledge dance, a Jolly Green Giant Party, and a hayride.

CHI, STETSON UNIVERSITY CHI CHAPTER, FOR THE FOURTH consecutive semester, had the highest scholastic average on campus. Our overall average on the three point system was 1.5611, 0.1281 above the next fraternity. Our active brothers had an average of 1.6599, and the pledge class had a 1.3160. Continuing to maintain its tradition for fine singing, Chi Chapter won the Greek Week Sing for the third time in four years and added another trophy to the collection. Also, Jan Patterson was elected Greek God of Greek Week by all the sororities on campus. Brother Patterson, a senior from Hollywood, Florida and majoring in business administration, was the co-chairman of the most successful Green Feather Charity Drive that Stetson has had in many years. During the spring semester of 1965, Chi won the White League basketball championship with a 6-0 record for the season and broke the three way tie in Green League for first place with a 10-2 record. The Green League softball and paddleball championships were also won with undefeated records in both sports. Our overall standing in intramurals was third place. During the 1965 fall semester, Pi Kappas continued setting new records with a first place in crosscountry (Team: George Hayes of Adairsville, Georgia; Jack Butler of Boca Raton, Florida, and pledge Tom Smith of Vero Beach, Florida, second place in the Greek Week Olympic Track Meet, and with an undefeated season so far in both Green and White Leagues in basketball. This year, six brothers were selected for Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities: Peter Hogue of Ft. Myers Beach, Fla.; Jim Thompson of Vero Beach, Fla.; Hoyt Edge of Louisville, Kentucky; Bob Eslinger of Bradenton, Fla.; Bing Vick of Charlotte, N.C.; and Joel Bagnal of Jacksonville, Fla. Hoyt Edge, who recently returned from spending his junior year studying in Germany, was awarded the "Harry L. Taylor Prize in Humanities" for writing the winning essay on "The Growing Problem of a Shrinking World." Brother Edge, a philosophy major, received a pear's full tuition plus a monetary award. Three Chi brothers were tapped for Omicron Delta Kappa, the highest honor a Stetson man can receive: Brother Edge; Jack Dawson of Venice, Fla.; and Steve Wilkerson of Albany, Ga. This brings the total membership of Chi brothers in this leadership honorary to six. Also, Bob Eslinger is the third consecutive Pi Kapp president of ODK. Chi Chapter is well represented this year in the Army ROTC Brigade with the top two ranking officers. Peter Hogue is Brigade Commander and Michael Lawrence of St. Petersburg, Fla. is the Battalion Commander. Brother Lawrence was also the number one cadet out of the 40 Stetson cadets who attended summer camp at Ft. Bragg, N.C. The Brothers of Chi Chapter sent a letter of support to Generald Westmoreland in Vietnam stating that we are behind the United States' policy in Vietnam (Ed Note: See story, page 30). And Chi Chapter is very proud of Brother Cartha D. DeLoach, Chi '42, who recently was appointed assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In the late Spring, an Alumni Banquet will be held. Plans are now being formulated, and more information will be sent to all Alumni of Chi Chapter. Sixteen men pledged Pi Kappa Phi this semester and recently Fred Bryant and Buddy Moore, both of St. Petersburg, Fla., were initiated into active membership. The new chapter officers for the spring semester of 1966 are Hoyt Edge, archon; Elmer Jost of Clermont, Fla., treasurer; Ricky Brannan of Vero Beach, Fla., secretary; Peter O'Callaghan of Decatur, Georgia; warden; Jim Thompson, chaplain; and Wayne Crosby of Jacksonville, Fla., historian. 20

PSI, CORNELL FOR OVER A YEAR NOW, Psi Chapter at Cornell has been engaged in a high level Alumni Relations program. We have retained the Stewart-Howe Alumni Service as consultants, and the agency's suggestions and plans have greatly assisted our alumni relations projects. Our program now has the important factor of continuity, while in the past each new historian instituted his own idea for the program and lost some forward motion. Some of the benefits of this new program were apparent during October Homecoming. An unusually large turnout of alumni was a result of systematic mailings and a well-organized schedule, which the alumni seemed to enjoy. Alumni-of-the-Year Paul Haas Jr., a former president of the Alumni Corporation, commented on the success of the Homecoming weekend and expressed the general sentiment of the visiting alumni by suggesting that every alumnus present resolve to return next year and bring another alum with him. Brother Haas also noted the present undergraduate enthusiasm and hospitality was a key to effective alumni relations. And, of course, the undergraduates have been pleased by increased alumni support for chapter activities and the growing flow of alumni information for the "Psiren," our chapter publication. OMEGA, PURDUE OMEGA CHAPTER OF PURDUE started the year of 1965-66 on a note of anticipation for a highly successful year. The chapter finds itself with the luxury of morethan-capacity membership, having pledged nine new men this fall. With our healthy financial condition, we have been able to very nearly complete refurnishing the first floor. After taking second in the popular and well publicized "University Sing" on Mother's Day 1965, we have continued full swing with our music-making. Our serenades this fall have been the talk of the campus. In campus athletics, Omega, during a long season of rough competition in 16-inch softball, has played some very exciting and successful games. We are looking forward to the intramural basketball season with three returning starters from last year's semifinal team. Yet with all our active athletic and social life, the greatest effort has been placed on scholastic improvement. And stringent rules on studying and hard work by all gives hope of a very successful academic year for Omega Chapter of Purdue. THE STAR

ALPHA EPSILON, FLORIDA RETIRING ALPHA EPSILON ARCHON Manuel James was elected executive vice president of the IFC in November. He had served as archon for two trimesters. Last year Alpha Epsilon's Barry Bennedict was president of the IFC. Barry, now a graduate engineering student also was a former chapter archon. The intramural football team came from behind in the last two minutes of the game to defeat Delta Chi, 12-6, for our fifth straight win. With this victory, Alpha Epsilon captured first place in Blue League intramural football for 1965. The chapter also took first place in the Blue League for its our homecoming decoration this trimester. The decoration was a huge alligator beating a wolf on the head with a club shaped like the state of Florida. It reflected the outcome of the big game, in which Florida whipped North Carolina State wolfpack 28-7. On a visit to the chapter, National President Mel Metcalfe presented the fraternity's National Publication Award to Jim Kelly, editor of Alpha Epsilon's newspaper, The Pi Kapp Gator, voted the best Pi Kapp publication of 1964-65. Brother Bill White, a journalism major, was named distinguished military cadet by the Air Force ROTC this trimester. Bill served as cadet coordinator of the Angel Flight, composed of Florida cadets, and as information officer of the Arnold Air Society on campus. ALPHA ZETA, OREGON STATE ALPHA ZETA'S PRESENT AND FUTURE position is the subject of this report. Our present position lies on the immediate past performance of the men in the house. Our formal rush program was pretty good considering the physical plant of the house. Our weaknesses during formal rush were made up for by the outstanding effort made by the men in the house during informal rush. The number of pledges to Alpha Zeta this year is more than the total number of pledges in the past two years. Scholarship seems to be going about as usual. We have always provided the best of study conditions; and though we don't claim to be the most academically minded house on campus, we have in the past two years been at the top and hope to be there again this year. Socially, we have always been tops at Oregon State. We had a number of exchanges, firesides, dances, and interfraternity get togethers. We feel that our house needs improvement, as does that of every organization, but Pi Kappa Phi at Oregon State is rapidly becoming one of the fastest moving fraternities on the campus. Our formal rush program as a whole got a great deal of cooperation from both the alumni and the men in the house. During spring term of last year, we signed up over 50 men to come and live in the house during formal rush week. This was about five times the number of men ever signed up for rush by this house in the past few years. Because about half of them did not cancel their OSU dormitory arrangements in time only 23 came down for rush week. But of the 23 who came, 11 pledged and we drew five men from other houses. The blame for the poor results can be attributed mainly to the interior condition of the house. The Alpha Zeta house, after 30 years of wear, leaves much to be desired. This problem may be remedied this summer as remodeling is the hope of everyone here. In informal rush, however, the house did better than it has in many years. Through the hard and diligent work of every man in the house and especially of rush chairman, Dick Wilcox, we pledged 13 men, 11 of whom will be living in for the winter term. We anticipate a very full house for some time to come. Socially we have had a very successful term. We have had three exchanges with different sororities on campus. We also had an excellent house dance thanks to the cooperation of the membership dance chairman, Jim Wojtasek. Next term we hope to have more exchanges and also our pajama dance. During the term, IFC arranged many fraternity exchanges in which we participated. Alpha Zeta has always been very active socially FEBRUARY, 1966

on campus, but unlike many fraternities, not so active as to seriously hurt our academics. Alpha Zeta can thank Mic Mickelson for its social life this term as he did a really outstanding job as social boss. Our chapter has been fairly active on campus this year. We have a number of men participating on campus in ROTC, sports, intramurals, debate, student government, and various other campus activities. Ken McGowan is on the varsity track team; Allen Otness, Rook basketball; Dan Woods, Rook wrestling; Dave Watts, OSU debate and Steve Goldsmith, NROTC. One outstanding contribution in the area of remodeling has been made by Ron Thom, a Pi Kapp alum. Ron, who is secretary-treasurer of the alumni association in Portland as well as building committee chairman, has been coordinating plans for the remodeling of the chapter house and has rallied the support of the Alpha Zeta alumni in a fund raising drive. With the alumni support and the revived spirit of the men in the house, Alpha Zeta is looking forward to one of the most successful years ever: We hope to have a new interior physical plant and a new spirit to go along with it for the years to come. ALPHA THETA, MICHIGAN STATE DURING THE PAST SEASON'S FOOTBALL campaign many Alpha Theta brothers had the chance to visit many of our chapters at rival schools. Also we collected a few new skins which we will add to our fireplace wall. Thanks, guys, for the hospitality and the skins! Homecoming was a real success, partly due to our

team's effort, but also to the fine work of our brothers in rousing some alumni and parent interest. We put in a lot of work on our display but didn't have the luck of winning. We had a lot of fun trying, though. After State beat Notre Dame, the brothers were really fired up. A caravan rally around campus was the result. After painting the cars with various slogans we headed out. Brother Scott Dittrich mounted our newly acquired brass cannon on the back of his TR-4 and with the aid of the campus police we staged a rally. Horns blaring and the cannon blasting we rallied around campus. Shortly after that we were on hand in full force with banners flying to greet the team when they arrived back at East Lansing. The pledges are going to see to it that the chapter has a autographed picture of the team. A consolation prize topped off our assortment of newly acquired trophies. At the beginning of the year Playboy Magazine rated Iowa as possible "Big Ten" champs. When the game with Iowa rolled around, the chapter challenged the prognosticator. Brother Jim Hansen wrote Hugh Hefner, publisher of Playboy, and waged a skin on the game. We won the game with little trouble and awaited our trophy. Within a week we received nothing less than an official bunny tail plaque. Our thanks to Playboy for their sportsmanship. Better luck next year! We believe this is a first in the wagering of a skin. ALPHA IOTA, AUBURN THE FALL QUARTER HAS BEEN most eventful for Alpha Iota. Besides conducting one of the largest rushes on record, the chapter's record was topped off by many outstanding achievements of brothers and pledges. New chapter officers are: Archon, John Rickey of Dadeville, Ala.; Treasurer, Norris Cruthirds of Avondale Estates, Ga.; secretary, Wesley Brock of Dadeville; historian, James Mann of Alex City, Ala.; chaplain, Bill Jones of Sylacagua, Ala.; and warden, James Kirkendall of Jacksonville, Fla. We pledged 47 new men for the fall quarter. They are: Gary Barco, Brian Bodine, Temple Bowling, Ken Brewer, James Buckwalter, Joe David, David Dozier Phil DuPree, Rick Gillard, Jimmy Griffen, Billy Grubb, Arthur Hammond, Mike Hoffer, Geoff Huddleston, Steve Johnston, Terry Kendrick, Bob Kenny, Bob Latham, Ronnie Ling, John McClure, Bob Mann, Don Marshall, Dudley Mendhiem, Jack Morrison, Billy Ponder, Mike Riddle, Bob Robie, Joe Ronan, Buddy Spivey, Jim Steward, David Strain, Guy Tadlock, Ward Taylor, Bob Thornton, David 21


Wolsoncroft, Ed Word, Wayne Land, Mike Ard, Robert Hopper, Barney Tubbs, Ken Morton, David Ward, Dale Carpenter, Bert Markle, Danny Smith, David Vandervort, and Tom Worthy. In Auburn campus politics, Alpha Iota fared well. Pat Murphy of North Augusta, S.C., was elected to the University Senate. David Wolsoncroft was elected vice chairman of the Junior IFC. Bill Kennedy, a past member of the Young Republican executive staff, is now advisor to the Student Senate. Bill was also chairman of the successful drive to establish a student radio station on campus. Alumni relations have never been better. More than a fourth of the fall pledge class was recommended to us by helpful old grads. At our homecoming festivities two trophies were given to alumni: one for the lowest chapter number present and the other for traveling farthest to attend. Plans for additions to the house are many and varied. Already the second largest house on campus (among 26), Alpha Iota plans to add a new chapter room and a fence in the back yard. A new color TV set has been added to the lounge room. On the sports scene, Alpha Iota went into the final rounds of competition in intramural football only to lose by a thin margin. Another honor, however, did not elude us: A picture of Alpha Iota's homecoming float appeared in the Birmingham News with the caption, "one of the best." ALPHA MU,PENN STATE ALPHA MU IS IN THE MIDST OF what should prove to be one of the finest years in the chapter's history. Alpha Mu has pledged eight new men that we feel will be great assets to the brotherhood. We hope to pledge additional men following winter rush and are planning toward this end now. Our new officers are Tom Rackley, archon; Bob Healy, secretary; Bob Simpson, treasurer; Dave Hauer, historian; Ron Borkowski, warden; Gary Bello, house manager; Neal Dunlevy, steward; and Jack Zahniser, chaplain. Upcoming events on our social calendar include the annual pledge formal in February, Penn State's Greek Week, and mixers with Delta Delta Delta, Gamma Phi Beta and Zeta Tau Alpha sororities. As usual, Alpha Mu is participating actively in the intramural sports program, with excellent basketball and bowling teams carrying on. House improvements include new dining room furniture provided by our alumni and a new stereo system planned for the near future. ALPHA XI, BROOKLYN POLY THE FOUR BROTHERS WHO represented Alpha Xi at Pi Kapp College last summer returned to Brooklyn espousing great praise for our Southern brothers. They told how they were greeted with true Southern hospitality by the delegates from Drexel, which is located in Southern Philadelphia. They also related to us the tremendous prowess of the Southern chapters in that predominately Northern sport of football. They believed that they had easy marks when one of the delegates from Georgia Tech asked if he could possibly join our delegates in throwing around the funny looking basketball. In this manner the seeds were sown for the North-South All Star football game. However, to the Northern brother's dismay there was nothing one sided to this revamped civil war. The game, after continuing for 45 minutes, finally ended in a 0-0 tie. After the game, Brother Al

Papp, waterboy for the both squads, made the observation that, "maybe they teach other things at Georgia Tech besides engineering". Alpha Xi, currently led by Archon Floyd Baranello, with Edward Duffy, Bob Demarino, Lenny Pomata, Cliff Stehle, and Jack MolineIli, treasurer, secretary, warden, historian, and chaplain, respectively, had an excellent fall rush and is presently in the midst of the most diN ersified social schedule in recent years. In I.F.C. sports we have again captured the football trophy by having another undefeated season. The highlight of this year being the 20-0 romp over our arch rivals, Lambda Chi. With our surplus of fine athletic talent the spring softball tournament should end with similar success. In closing, we would like to express our appreciation for Traveling Counselor Frank Parrish's visit to our chapter. His comments and constructive criticism were warmly received. In fact, one of his suggestions has already been put into practice; that is, the saying of the closing prayer at meetings in unison. Our entire brotherhood feels this little action has tightened the links of the chain that binds us together in fraternal accord. ALPHA OMICRON, IOWA STATE MEMBERS OF ALPHA OMICRON CHAPTER welcomed numerous alums returning to the Iowa State University campus for a 1965 Homecoming victory. Alum Gib Stanek contributed considerable aid to the brothers with a lawn display that finished fourth in a field of 17 entries. Larry Jones, an industrious industrial engineering major, has been bringing home the honors to our chapter. Jonesey's initiation into Gamma Epsilon Sigma, industrial engineering honorary, and Tau Beta Pi, all-engineering honorary, along with his pinning, were in the true Pi Kapp spirit. With the dream of a new addition to the house in mind, Pi Kapps here went through a vital Rush Week that found 18 men accepting the White Diamond. These pledges, combined with four returning pledges and three informal pledgings since, brought Alpha Omicron's pledge class to 25 members. Despite this rushing success, more hard work is required of the brothers here to build the group that is to fill the expanded house next fall. Officers elected in November are: Archon, senior Jim Destival; Treasurer, junior Jim Moon; Secretary, sophomore Bob Lane; Warden, junior Everett Kemp; Historian, sophomore Keith Vest; and Chaplain, sophomore John O'Neil. The group is young and should serve Alpha Omicron well this term and many future terms. Alpha Omicron plans, with the help of alumni, to kickoff the fund drive for the new house addition to be completed in September, 1966. Our fall house party theme was "Pi Kappa Phi Coon Hunt" and was held at a lodge west of Ames, Iowa. After apple cider, popcorn and dancing, the Pi Kapps and their dates took to the woods in their hillbilly costumes in search of the prize-yielding paper coon, with Tommy Stire bringing home the prize-winner. This and the Entertainment by the Pi Kapp folk-singing group, The Four Fifths, added another method of partying successfully. In early fall, a straying turtle was taken in by the brothers. Named Minnie and decorated with the letters ttke, it was loosed in a small lake on campus. As long as women's residences keep capturing Minnie and demanding a serenade for her return, Pi Kapps here will play along.

Miss Lyn Foster was elected our Rose for 1965-1966. She is a pledge of Chi Omega Sorority and is the daughter of Attorney and Mrs. Bruce Foster of Knoxville, Tenn. Earlier this year, Lyn made her formal debut at the Knoxville Symphony Ball. Alpha Sigma's new officers are: Jack A. Pierce, archon; Arthur L. Keeble, treasurer; John H. Haralson, secretary; Frank M. Pugh, warden; Terence A. Sullivan, historian; and Clark A. Roberts, chaplain. The Pi Kapps at UT were very happy with the results of Fall Rush. Twenty-two men were pledged, and the consensus among the brothers is that this is the sharpest pledge class in many years. Officers of the pledge class are: Charlton DeVault, president; Richard Broxton,treasurer; Hugh Lanier, secretary; Larry Lay, chaplain; and Jerry Miller, sergeant-at-arms. Warden Frank Pugh has initiated a new pledge program based on a merit-demerit system. Pledges may gain merits for any noteworthy activity, such as making an "A" on an hour exam or participating in an extracurricular campus activity, while demerits are assessed for any activity deemed unworthy of a Pi Kapp pledge. A total of 175 merit points are needed for initiation. Homecoming is always a big event at UT. The chapter held a buffet to welcome the alumni who came to see our undefeated Vols play Ole Miss. While they were generally displeased with the results of the game,(Tennessee lost by one point), they expressed satisfaction with the festivities at the house. ALPHA TAU, R.P.I. THIS YEAR ALPHA TAU HAS experienced some of the difficult times which are inevitable with every fraternity. We started the fall term under social probation, and all of our initial efforts were expended in relieving that problem. This was accomplished early in October. Far more tragic was the death of Mrs. Elsie Palsgrove, beloved wife of Professor Grant Palsgrove, the chapter advisor. She served Alpha Tau for almost 35 years, and her loss will grieve us for a long time to come. This semester's officers are: Archon, Richard Pocock; Treasurer, James Russell; Secretary, William Krepick; Historian, Ronald Pasini; Warden, Paul Tava; and Chaplain, Harrison Horan. They carried the chapter out of its difficult times and re-established a normal state of affairs. Seventeen excellent pledges were initiated during the fall, and have proved to be invaluable to the chapter in all fields. Alpha Tau had an unusually large number of alumni return for Fall Weekend, including many who graduated long ago. Recent alumni included: Robert Saunders, Steve Strunck, Bill Torpie, Al Aroneck, Jim Morrison, Dick Lawton, Tony Linn, Ed Banta, Eric Nagel, Erik Pederson, Joe Newman, Dave Dwight, George Siciliano, Ed Rhodes, and Dave Goddard. Activities on campus included a discotheque atmosphere at the R.P.I. Field House with entertainment supplied by the Isley Brothers and Bobby Comstock and the Counts. On Saturday were the football game with Union and the ball at the Hendrick Hudson Hotel in the evening. Activities at Alpha Tau included the traditional buffet and cocktail party and a lively party in the evening featuring Turk and the Party Cats. Two men recently brought honor to the chapter. Gerald Sweeney, a sophomore from Watertown, Conn., was tapped for White Key during Fall Weekend. White Key F E B R U A R Y , 1 966

Y., was inducted into Pi Tau Sigma, the honorary society for mechanical engineers. Both men are active with the Interfraternity Council at R.P.I. Socially,"Pi Kappa Party" (Alpha Tau's nickname at R.P.I.) is still unsurpassed both at R.P.I. and neighboring Russell Sage Women's College. Open parties still draw the largest crowds, and the brotherhood is highly respected on campus. The annual Founders' Day celebration on December 12 included a late afternoon cocktail party at the chapter house followed by a banquet at the Hendrick Hudson Hotel. Guest speaker was Dr. Byron Evans, Vice President and Director of Student Affairs at Rensselaer. In the evening, brothers and dates attended the Campus Carols, presented by the glee clubs of R.P.I. and Russell Sage. Also we held a Christmas party for underprivileged children. The athletic teams are, as usual, in top contention for the Trustees' Trophy presented to the top house in interfraternity sports. The football team was undefeated in its league, its single loss being to Lambda Chi Alpha in the semi-final match. Bob Byrnes and Jim Moloney won the golf championship for Alpha Tau, and the swimming, bowling, and tennis teams have been piling up points. The basketball team is presently undefeated through five games. The brothers are looking forward to rushing this month with hopes of acquiring another excellent pledge class. R.P.I. freshmen are always "snowed" by Alpha Tau's stately Victorian mansion, and should be more so this year due to a new living room, refinished first floor, and rennovated game room. The facade of the chapter house will also be sandblasted in the spring. The main rushing asset is, however, the high caliber and diversity of the brotherhood. Second term promises to be a busy one with rushing, Saturnalia Weekend and innumerable campus activities occurring within the next few months. In summary, Alpha Tau has surmounted many unusual difficulties and raised itself to one of the highest levels in many years.

ALPHA PHI, ILLINOIS TECH On December 11, Alpha Phi celebrated its 30th anniversary at Illinois Institute of Technology and Founders' Day with a banquet at a local restaurant. The chapter was fortunate in having many of its Alumni return to attend the affair. After dinner there was a formal meeting of the Alumni Association, headed by Alums James Helm, Dave Larson, Fred Widlack, and Dick Gregory, and the Active Chapters. Many topics were discussed at this meeting, including the size of the pledge class (29 — largest on campus) and the chapter's scholarship rating (second highest at HT). The alumni informed the chapter about its financial obligations to the school in paying for the house. After these important discussions, the alumni and undergrads spent the rest of the evening renewing acquaintances and singing old songs. Alpha Phi was pleased to have Traveling Counselor Frank Parrish, present for this important weekend. Frank attended both an off-campus party Friday night and the banquet on Saturday. His suggestions at the discussion sessions and throughout his stay will undoubtedly help Alpha Phi in the future. ALPHA PSI, INDIANA ALPHA PSI OF PI KAPPA PHI celebrated Pi Kappa Phi's 61st birthday on December 8. With us for our Founders' Day Dinner was Will E. Edington, National Scholarship Chairman from 1925 to 1963. We were honored to have brother Edington with us, both as our guest and after dinner speaker. It was his second visit to Alpha Psi, as he was present at our installation as a chapter on November 9, 1947. We were also fortunate in having Robert H. Shaffer, Dean of Students, and Brother Ledford C. Carter, from Alpha Alpha, now a professor here at I.U., as our other guests. Our new Archon, James McClure of Indianapolis, Ind., presided over the dinner. John Peterson, historian, introduced Dr. Edington. Another high point of this year has been Omega chapter's visit to Alpha Psi for the Indiana-Purdue football game. Many of our Omega brothers stayed the weekend, "sacking out" in our new chapter house. The traditional I.U.-Purdue rivalry did not dampen the good will and brotherhood between Indiana and Purdue Pi Kapps. Alpha Psi alumni also attended our Open House in great numbers, including Alpha Psi number one, David A. Bibler. Both alumni and undergraduates have been pleased this year in our increasingly better relationship. We are planning more than the usual number of activities with our alumni. We have a great deal of room in which to grow, just having moved into our new chapter house last March. The way our new Rush Chairman, Richard Stutz, has been pledging men, we may have to move to a larger house in a year or two! So with a look to the past at our Founders' Day Dinner, and an appraisal of our present activities, Alpha Psi awaits the future with great optimism! ALPHA OMEGA, OREGON REACTIVATED TWO YEARS AGO, Alpha Omega has finally made its mark on the IFC rush lists. Alumni and members alike were especially pleased with the 11 men pledged during fall rush for at Oregon new and small fraternities usually lose out to the larger houses. Combined with informal rush, this brings house membership to 10 initiates and 16 pledges, all juniors and below. As this makes housing an impossibility on the temporary basis on which it now exists, plans for a new house have already been drawn by Brother H. P. Saabye, Alpha Omega, '52, and bids for construction were to be issued in January 1966. The new house is to hold 28 men. 24

In spite of the efforts toward grades, rush, and the new house, the brothers have also successfully been living up to the old adage that Pi Kapps have more fun than people. In between a Roaring Twenties costume party, beach trip, and numerous firesides and exchange functions with various women's organizations, no-one seems to have broken down from overwork. As the size of the chapter grows, responsibilities spread out more evenly than two years ago, and a strong, unified chapter seems to be emerging. BETA ALPHA, NEWARK COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AFTER SPENDING OUR SUMMER TOGETHER on the Jersey shore, we of Beta Alpha, back at home, packed away our surfboards and dusted off our books once more. Rushing season yielded enough rushees for us to be quite selective. There are presently 14 pledges who are learning our way of life while preparing to take places in our brotherhood. You might meet them in the near future, for we are sending them on pledge trips to various chapters in order that they might gain a deeper insight into our fraternity. They have already visited Alpha Xi and Alpha Mu as well as Alpha Upsilon. This semester's officers are Ed Klebaur, archon; John Kirincich, treasurer; Jack Lavery, secretary; Gerry Kurth, warden; Joe Chapski, historian; and Ray Koch, chaplain. Ed, Jack, and Gerry attended Pi Kapp College this past summer and brought back some good ideas for our chapter. The brothers of Beta Alpha have increased their areas of influence in college activities. We have nine varsity lettermen, three offices in the Varsity Club and two offices in the Athletic Association, editor of the college magazine as well as members in a majority of activities on campus. Four of our brothers have achieved much envied recognition in "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. They A re Bob Polucki, John Kirincich, Ed Byrne, Gerry Kurth. Needless to say, we are very proud of them. Our recently acquired house is now receiving the finishing touches which will probably take about another two months to complete. We are now buying a heater for our party room with money earned by sponsoring a college dance. We extend an invitation to all Pi Kapps to visit with us. BETA BETA, FLORIDA SOUTHERN SEPTEMBER FOUND THE PI KAPP house at Florida Southern College buzzing with anticipation of another successful year. Because of the temporary loss of our charter, our main goals are improving the chapter in every possible way, and preparing for spring rush. Beta Beta was represented at Pi Kapp College last summer by Brothers Craig Jacobsen and Joe Leer and pledges Gary Baker, Rocke Hill, and Bruce White, who was initiated with Simon Fogarty, Jr. Beta Beta has always been well represented in campus organizations, and this year is no exception. Jim Berry is treasurer of the student body, and Joe Leer is the Male Greek Senator. Heading the Student Government Association is Dick Kessler, who also holds the position of Supreme Court Justice. The political Union includes member brothers Ron Myers, John McLeod, Dick Kessler and Craig Jacobsen. Pete Hunter, Hap Carlton, Dick Kessler, and Craig Jacobsen also are active in the advanced ROTC program. Pat McNulty and Jim Berry are on the soccer team. Dale Hamm, McNulty and Berry row crew. And Bruce White is on Southern's basketball team. This year, under the leadership of our new officers— Archon Craig Jacobsen, Treasurer Ron Myers, Secretary Tom Addenbrook, Historian Bill Beckman, Warden Hap Carlton, and Chaplain Joe Leer—We feel our goals will be accomplished, and that Beta Beta will regain the title, "Best All-Around Fraternity on Campus" an honor bestowed on us by the college administration in the spring of 1965.

Alpha Psi's new chapter house BETA GAMMA, LOUISVILLE THIS PAST FALL SEMESTER has been slower than usual for the brothers at Beta Gamma, but there have been some good times. Homecoming was one. Our house decoration—although not a prize winner—was one that we were proud of. Other social events on campus have kept us busy. New officers recently were elected: Richard Klemens, archon; Joseph Horlander, treasurer; Steve Bickel, secretary; Raymond Pryor, warden; Edward Hoben, historian; and James Hardy, chaplain. Brother Klemens is also Beta Gamma's IFC representative. He recently attended the national IFC convention with the Assistant Dean of Men and the IFO president. Rick reported he had a good time ancl enjoyed meeting the other Pi Kappa there. Football ended on campus with the Blue Wave of Beta Gamma having had a rather rough time this season. Now basketball is under way, and everyone here is looking forward to a better showing on the hardwood than we had on the gridiron. BETA DELTA, DRAKE UNIVERSITY BETA DELTA BEGAN ITS 16TH year at Drake University with the initit,ation of four new members into the chapter. They are Merrill Bitner of Waukegan, Ill.; Rick Fetters of Indianola, Iowa; Don McWilliams of North Hollywood, Calif.; and Don Simmons of Central City, Iowa. Fall rush, both formal and informal, resulted in the pledging of 10 men. This pledge class, through a revised pledge and scholarship program, has developed into one of the most well-rounded groups Beta Delta has produced. Our social calendar began in September with the annual Beta Delta A' GO GO, featuring the Coachmen from Des Moines, and has continued with two theme parties each month. These included a Hayrack Ride, Casino Party, Costume party and numerous exchange parties. Two outstanding members of our chapters are Allen Burke and Bob Rivers. Brother Burke, a senior statistics major, is from Western Springs, Ill. He has held the position of IFC representative; secretary, treasurer and archon of the chapter; IFC and SFC committeeman; and campus orientation counselor. He is now sergeantat-arms of the IFC. Brother Rivers, a junior Pharmacy major, is from Elgin, Ill. In his two years in the fraternity, he has held the offices of chaplain and now secretary. He has been on the scholarship committee and is now chairman of that committee. He has achieved personal scholarship recognition by being on the Dean's List and maintaining a scholarship. In addition he is on the IFC scholarship committee. FEBRUARY, 1966

Beta Eta men extend the hand of fellowship during rush week. BETA ETA, FLORIDA STATE AFTER RELATING THEIR SUMMER experiences, the brothers of Beta Eta settled down this past fall to the business of making the chapter a better one. The first job was the initiation of the old pledges. These new brothers are: Mike Agnini, David Busch, Don Chao, Bob Covert, Brian Hamilton, Bob Orr, Ed Schuler, and Wayne Vincent. The next and most important job facing the brothers was rush. After three tremendous rush parties and a lot of talking, the final score was 34 pledges. Before classes began the brothers did a lot of work on the house. The front of the house was painted and the living room was completely paneled in wood. To put the finishing touch on the interior, new furniture was added. This helped during rush. The latest additions to the house, were made at Christmas time. The Pi Kappettes bought the house a hanging corner light for the living room. And the brothers gave Mom,our housemother, a new television set. Also added at the beginning of winter were new heaters for the main house. The brothers ran away with the annual pledgeactive football game, probably because of their experiences in intramural football, where we lost some close games in the closing seconds. This year's intramural basketball team should be the best and most experienced in years. Beta Eta also has some real athletes on Florida State teams. Larry Kissam was a starting tackle on the football team; Bill Phillips and Bill Peacock are starters on the basketball squad; Pau Dezeeuw, Don Chao, Jim Gardner, Roberto Marcher are on the tennis team; Gerry Ohmielewski and Wayne Vincent are on the baseball team; and Dick Joyce is on the swimming team. Also still in the F.S.U. circus are Dave "Bones" Brown, John Mastry, and Dave Busch. Homecoming was one of the highlights of the year. The float this year was built with the Chi Omegas. More alumni than ever returned, and a good time was had by all. National President Mel Metcalfe visited the chapter and put on his traveling magic show. And John Davis, traveling counselor, spent a few days with us. The close of the year brought the election of new officers for the chapter. They are: John Shaffer, archon; Marvin Bass, treasurer; Mike O'Dair, secretary; David Ward, historian; Casey Hoefle, warden; and Mike Agnini, chaplain. 23

Alpha Psi's new chapter house BETA GAMMA, LOUISVILLE THIS PAST FALL SEMESTER has been slower than usual for the brothers at Beta Gamma, but there have been some good times. Homecoming was one. Our house decoration—although not a prize winner—was one that we were proud of. Other social events on campus have kept us busy. New officers recently were elected: Richard Klemens, archon; Joseph Horlander, treasurer; Steve Bickel, secretary; Raymond Pryor, warden; Edward Hoben, historian; and James Hardy, chaplain. Brother Klemens is also Beta Gamma's IFC representative. He recently attended the national IFC convention with the Assistant Dean of Men and the IFO president. Rick reported he had a good time and enjoyed meeting the other Pi Kapps there. Football ended on campus with the Blue Wave of Beta Gamma having had a rather rough time this season. Now basketball is under way, and everyone here is looking forward to a better showing on the hardwood than we had on the gridiron. BETA DELTA, DRAKE UNIVERSITY BETA DELTA BEGAN ITS 16TH year at Drake University with the inititation of four new members into the chapter. They are Merrill Bitner of Waukegan, Ill.; Rick Fetters of Indianola, Iowa; Don McWilliams of North Hollywood, Calif.; and Don Simmons of Central City, Iowa. Fall rush, both formal and informal, resulted in the pledging of 10 men. This pledge class, through a revised pledge and scholarship program, has developed into one of the most well-rounded groups Beta Delta has produced. Our social calendar began in September with the annual Beta Delta A' GO GO, featuring the Coachmen from Des Moines, and has continued with two theme parties each month. These included a Hayrack Ride, Casino Party, Costume party and numerous exchange parties. Two outstanding members of our chapters are Allen Burke and Bob Rivers. Brother Burke, a senior statistics major, is from Western Springs, Ill. He has held the position of IFC representative; secretary, treasurer and archon of the chapter; IFC and SFC committeeman; and campus orientation counselor. He is now sergeantat-arms of the IFC. Brother Rivers, a junior Pharmacy major, is from Elgin, Ill. In his two years in the fraternity, he has held the offices of chaplain and now secretary. He has been on the scholarship committee and is now chairman of that committee. He has achieved personal scholarship recognition by being on the Dean's List and maintaining a scholarship. In addition he is on the IFC scholarship committee. FEBRUARY, 1966

Beta Eta men extend the hand of fellowship during rush week. BETA ETA, FLORIDA STATE AFTER RELATING THEIR SUMMER experiences, the brothers of Beta Eta settled down this past fall to the business of making the chapter a better one. The first job was the initiation of the old pledges. These new brothers are: Mike Agnini, David Busch, Don Chao, Bob Covert, Brian Hamilton, Bob Orr, Ed Schuler, and Wayne Vincent. The next and most important job facing the brothers was rush. After three tremendous rush parties and a lot of talking, the final score was 34 pledges. Before classes began the brothers did a lot of work on the house. The front of the house was painted and the living room was completely paneled in wood. To put the finishing touch on the interior, new furniture was added. This helped during rush. The latest additions to the house, were made at Christmas time. The Pi Kappettes bought the house a hanging corner light for the living room. And the brothers gave Mom, our housemother, a new television set. Also added at the beginning of winter were new heaters for the main house. The brothers ran away with the annual pledgeactive football game, probably because of their experiences in intramural football, where we lost some close games in the closing seconds. This year's intramural basketball team should be the best and most experienced in years. Beta Eta also has some real athletes on Florida State teams. Larry Kissam was a starting tackle on the football team; Bill Phillips and Bill Peacock are starters on the basketball squad; Pau Dezeeuw, Don Chao, Jim Gardner, Roberto Marcher are on the tennis team; Gerry Ohmielewski and Wayne Vincent are on the baseball team; and Dick Joyce is on the swimming team. Also still in the F.S.U. circus are Dave "Bones" Brown, John Mastry, and Dave Busch. Homecoming was one of the highlights of the year. The float this year was built with the Chi Omegas. More alumni than ever returned, and a good time was had by all. National President Mel Metcalfe visited the chapter and put on his traveling magic show. And John Davis, traveling counselor, spent a few days with us. The close of the year brought the election of new officers for the chapter. They are: John Shaffer, archon; Marvin Bass, treasurer; Mike O'Dair, secretary; David Ward, historian; Casey Hoefle, warden; and Mike Agnini, chaplain.

BETA IOTA, TOLEDO WELL INTO THE SEMESTER, the Pi Kapps at Beta Iota Chapter were involved in many activities of cam• pus and Greek concern. The most important campus honor came when the chapter won second place in the Homecoming float competition. We also received the first place trophy from I.F.C. This alone was worth all effort put into the float, for this was the first time in five years that the TKE's did not place first in I.F.C. competition. As for founding new traditions. the men of Pi Kappa Phi awarded two trophies at WUS Carnival for the "Playboy" and "Playmate" of the year. The carnival is held by all Greek o7ganizations to raise funds for bringing foreign exchange students to thc University of Toledo. Having Pictures taken with a Playboy Bunny proved to be painless, and contributed much to WUS. On December 5. the Brothers at Beta Iota celebrated Founders' Day with a banquet at Anderson's Heritage. The most important honor of the day was the visit by National President Mel Metcalfe. Brother Metcalfe provided us with an excellent after dinner speech on the true meaning of brotherhood in Pi Kappa Phi, and entertained us with his bag of magic tricks. Then came the long awaited presentation of awards. Honored with the National pin for Scholarship was Brother John Lindhuber. The Outstanding Pledge Award went to Dennis Thayer. and the Outstanding Big Brother Award was given to Denny's big brother, Dave Hendricks. The most cherished awards, Outstanding Senior and Outstanding Brother, both were given to Archon Tim O'Shea, who has the added distinction of being the only brother at Beta Iota to serve three terms as archon. BETA XI, CENTRAL MICHIGAN ALUMNI, WE NEED YOUR HELP! With some strong support from you, Beta Xi could be the top fraternity on campus in a very short time. Spring rush is developing in a big way for us this year. We have high hopes of taking the largest pledge class in the history of Beta Xi. Our social season has been extremely successful, and at the same time we have created a good image with the local people. We held a Thanksgiving party for children at the State Home and Training School, and we sang Christmas carols at the hospital and the home for the aged. Both these functions were held with sororities, and we returned to the house for a dance and refreshments afterwards. This type party is extremely successful as it helps us not only on campus, but with the townspeople. Our Founders' Day Banquet will be held in April, and the Rose Ball will be held the same night. The whole weekend will be alumni-orientated, and we have high hopes that a record number will attend. At Pi Kapp College last summer, Beta Xi received a Master Chapter rating, and the award for the Most Improved Chapter. This should be some indication of the progress Beta Xi is making. There is still a long way to go, but the important thing is that we have started moving, and nothing will stop us now! This year Beta Xi and the Mt. Pleasant Daily News are co-sponsoring a Winter Carnival at CMU. Plans call for a snow sculpturing contest, winter games, and snowmen to be built on all the highways leading into Mt. Pleasant. We have received confirmation of statewide television coverage, and numerous newspapers and radio stations also will carry publicity on it. No definite date has been set, as the success of the carnival depends on the snow. Last year's Rose Queen, Miss Sharon Huffman, was runner-up in the National Rose Queen Contest. She has worked diligently for the betterment of Pi Kappa Phi, and we owe much of our recent success to her. We are proud of Beta Xi. We have a chapter and chapter house that the alumni can be proud of. We hope that you will feel free to call on us for any assistance that we may be able to render, and by all means stop and see us whenever you can. 26

Beta Iota award winners with National President Metcalfe at Founders' Day banquet in Toledo. BETA OMICRON, NORTHWESTERN STATE THE BIG EVENT AT BETA OMICRON this year is the building of our new lodge on fraternity row. The house was completed and informally opened to the public on December 4, the day of the annual Natchitoches Christmas festival. More than 100 guests were present during the day including several alumni brothers. The house is white with gold shutters and is panelled throughout with mahogany. In the house are a kitchen, an office, two bathrooms, two closets, and a large meeting room. At the beginning of the fall semester Beta Omicron initiated two news members: Michael Lee Moncrief and Thomas Michael Payne. New pledges for the fall are: Paul Barkley, Roy Burnam, Danny Cameron, Butch East, Tommy Ferguson, Lynn Foret, Tom Gall, Randy Guin, George Mandeville, Charles Militello, Mike Richardson, and Birney Walker. Officers for the 1965-66 school year are: Shelton Eubanks, archon; Charles Thompson, treasurer; Mickey Moncreif, secretary; Mel Price, warden; Buddy Durham, chaplain; and Mike Payne, historian. These officers and other committee heads were installed in November. The Pi Kapps at NSC are becoming more and more active around campus. We have entered all intramural sports events, including football, basketball, ping-pong, the cross-country race, volleyball, and bowling. In football, Pi Kapp finished the season with a record of 3-3. After the end of the regular season our pledges played the TKE pledges for a keg of beer and beat them 6-0. All the Pi Kapps including the pledges and the actives are now in training for a game with Kappa Sigma in the annual post-season Charity Bowl game here at NSC. Still in the future is the annual pledge-active football game, a marble tournament, intramural swimming, gymnastics, weight lifting, baseball, and track. The social status of our chapter is also beginning to roll. Plans are being made for a "Pi Kapp weekend." which will include a barbecue, hayride, swimming, and will be climaxed by the annual Rose Ball. Beta Omicron celebrated Founders' Day at the house with a speaker and refreshments. We had a Christmas party which doubled as an informal rush party for Pi Kapps, prospective pledges and their dates. Together with the Sigma Kappa sorority girls we went out and sang Christmas carols to the town people. Considering the time consumed in operating the chapter and keeping up their studies, Pi Kapps participate generously in other campus activities. Mike Payne is a member of Phi Epsilon Kappa, professional P. E. fraternity, and won the intramural gymnastics meet for Pi Kapp last year.

fraternity Council. Dick Frederick represents the Pi Kapp dormitory at the meetings of the Associated Men Students. Buddy Durham is a member of the Davis Players, a local drama fraternity, and appeared in two plays last year. Mickey Moncreif spends a lot of extra time on the intramural sports program. We try to be a hard-working group! BETA TAU, VALDOSTA STATE FALL OF 1964 BROUGHT A NEW form of rush to Valdosta State College. The "Total Smoker" was the only rush event allowed. Each fraternity had two and a half hours in which to process 78 men in rush. Of course, we Pi Kapps had the most impressive smoker, directed by rush chairman Ronald (Toad) Thomas of Waycross, Ga. And the brothers of Chi Chapter at Stetson were a big help in our new rush program. We pledged the top 20 men in the freshman class, all a credit to the White Diamond. Both brothers and pledges are now busy selling ads for our basketball program, the biggest money making project of Beta Tau. Coaching the Red Dogs in football this year was Brother Nelson Conger from Tifton, Ga. The pledge class began the year by sponsoring a car wash which proved to be the most profitable this chapter has ever had. In addition, several other community projects and another car wash were held, the proceeds from which were donated to the local Muscular Dystrophy drive. Brother Tex Bently was elected the 1965-66 Greek god of V.S.C. National President, Mel Metcalfe, and Traveling Counselor John Davis visited the chapter during the quarter. If the remainder of the year proves as successful for Pi Kappa Phi as it has so far, we should be able to achieve ever increasing goals. Beta Tau's new officers are: Ronald Thomas, archon; Earl Spell, treasurer; Bill Chapman, secretary; 011ie Lindell, historian; Richard Koger, chaplain; Jeff Hires, warden. BETA UPSILON, VIRGINIA UPON THE CULMINATION OF A SIX week rush period in November Beta Upsilon pledged 24 first year men. The pledging of these men made Pi Kapp's the first in size among all the pledge classes of the 31 fraternities at Virginia. Five states are represented among these men. Their high caliber was evidenced by the election of two of their number to the First Year Committee which works in conjunction with the Student Council at the University. In addition to the major building program resulting in the new pledge class was a refurbishing of the chapter's physical plant. Already extensive work, such as carpeting of halls and stairways, painting of most rooms, and paneling of the living and dining rooms, has been completed. Further plans are in process for renovation of bath and heating facilities. Looking ahead, the alumni are also working on plans for the chapter's moving to a new, larger home. BETA CHI, EAST TEXAS STATE THINGS AT BETA CHI HAVE BEEN swinging this semester. In all fraternity and sorority activities we have taken a first or second place. Traveling Counselor Dan Ray spent two weeks with. us during our fall rush, which saw 24 men pledge Pi Kappa Phi, the greatest pledge class yet for our young chapter. These pledges have lived up to all our expectations, with one, Ray Hevron, even winning a tobacco-spitting contest during Western Week. Recently we completed our Victory Bell, dedicated to Mel Metcalf, and presented it during the ESU Homecoming. It has been officially recognized by the school administration and by the other Greeks on campus. One of the pledge projects under way now is a sign with our Greek letters for the front of the house.

During Homecoming we also built our first float and won second place in the fraternity division with the theme "8 Days Around the World." Our second annual Pi Kapp Bowling Tournament was held at the end of November with a total of 23 teams from the Greeks participating. A week later Pi Kapps took second place in the Student-Faculty Frolics, and our aim now is to take the school spirit trophy for the University basketball season. Our house is soon due for a change. The purchase of a trophy case and carpet for the living room is coming up, and that should make what we feel is the best house on campus even better. Our problem of finding faculty sponsors has been eliminated by the initiation of Bob Galvan of the Psychology Department, and Fred Klaus of Biology Department. These men have helped to create the great momentum which has pushed us forward this semester. Although we have worn the pages out of our textbooks and burnt gallons of "midnight oil," we have found time for our annual Fall Dinner Dance, Ice Cream Socials, and other respites from the scholastic grind. One of our greatest thrills this semester was to hear former executive secretary, Greg Elam, at the Founder's Day Banquet held at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas. He said "Tonight across the length and breadth of this nation men of Pi Kappa Phi are gathered to honor the memory of those men who on December 10, 1904, sought to give us that glorious heritage that we have today." The brothers of Beta Chi were thrilled and inspired by his eloquence and brotherly exhortations. We of Beta Chi profited greatly by meeting and knowing this greet brother of Pi Kappa Phi. 21


BETA OMEGA, EAST TENNESSEE STATE BETA OMEGA CHAPTER PLEDGED 25 men in fall rush. Our officers for 1965-66 are David N. Mielke of Johnson City, Tenn., archon; Dick Blair of North Wilkesboro, N. C., treasurer; Lee Hughes of Bristol, Tenn., secretary; Gene Smith of Rockville Center, N.Y., warden; Robert Wood of Johnson City, historian; and Fred Anderson of Vinton, Va., chaplain. BETA PHI, EAST CAROLINA COLLEGE Fall has indeed been a busy and rewarding quarter for Beta Phi Chapter. East Carolina Pi Kapps have found time to pledge 17 men, excell in intramurals, renovate parts of our house, and generally enjoy one of their most enjoyable social seasons. Returning to East Carolina in September found Beta Phi diving into a most successful rush. The 17 men pledged may not constitute the largest pledge class in our short history, but we feel it was the largest on quality we have ever had. These pledges, predominately from the Virginia-Carolina area, are future Pi Kapps that all Pi Kapps will take pride in calling brothers. Under the able leadership of brother Richard Scott our intramural teams have made a shamble of the annual race for the "President's Cup." Only our crosscountry team has let us down and that was not too far, as it finished second. The remainder of our teams, including; football, volleyball, badminton, and bowling have managed to take campus titles. Under brother Scott's iron hand we anticipate very little trouble in the remaining sports, especially basketball and swimming. Beta Phi's social calendar has been a playboy's delight. With brother David Knoch heading up the events, Beta Phi get-togethers have consisted of everything from cook-outs on the Tar River to trips, by chartered bus, to Richmond, Va. and Orlando, Fla. for football games. Brother Dave mixed combos, punch, kegs, and trips masterfully to spread an epidemic of social fatigue around 1301 E. 5th St. No one was heard complaining, however, and after a good rest over the holidays I am sure all will be ready for a repeat performance. GAMMA BETA, OLD DOMINION COLLEGE IN SPRING RUSH LAST SEMESTER, Gamma Beta pledged 12 men, the second largest pledge on campus. The pledges are: Ted Bachus, Bob Bishop, Chuck Brady, Mickey Frank, Gus Gostel, Ernie Joy, Don Midgett, Bill Nock, Joe Perry, Charlie Scott, Cliff Splichal, and Alva Wilder. The success of the pledge class projects — including a fund-raising car wash and combo party, and a beach party at Virginia Beach — reflected the high caliber of the new men. Intramural sports, Gamma Beta took first place in swimming and volleyball and tied for second place in basketball. We placed fourth in football and the overall standings in a field of nearly a dozen national fraternities. With the opening of the fall semester, Archon Lenny Sharp was elected this year's president of the IFC. Brother Chet McGinnis and Lenny are sports coeditors of the college newspaper, The Mace and Crown. Also serving in campus positions are brothers Tom Lewis, who is on the Junior Class Council; Bill Bakun, who is president of the History Club; and Alva Wilder and Charlie Scott, president and vice president, respectively, of the Student Education Association, the largest special interest group on campus. The great success of our fall rush functions and the chapter's achievements in scholarship, intramural athletics and campus activities are exemplified in our Master Chapter award. 29

MORE NEWS AND NOTES NEW COLONY We are pleased to announce that the Fraternity has accepted the Lambda Sigma Nu local fraternity, Western Carolina College, as a colony. The new colony, known as Kappa Phi Colony, has thirty-one (31) members. They were founded January 4, 1965, and in the brief period of their existence have established themselves as a well-organized determined, and successful fraternity.

PI KAPPA PHI'S TRAVELING MEN an Ray and John Davis are nearly always Don the road for Pi Kappa Phi. Dan and John are two of the fraternity's traveling counselors. With the fraternity's other traveling men from the National Office, they work on a busy schedule of visits to undergraduate chapters and are forever at the ready for a quick trip to a chapter needing special advice and help from a National Office representative. Dan joined the National Office staff following graduation in June 1964 from East Carolina College, where he was a charter member and first initiate of Beta Phi Chapter. While at East Carolina, Dan held the Beta

Phi offices of archon, treasurer, secretary and warden and attended the 1961 and 1963 sessions of Pi Kapp College. He was a member of the

campus newspaper staff, serving as sports editor and later associate editor. He also was a member of Circle K, the IFC, the Inter-dorm Judiciary, and the College Union Committee. From February to July, 1965, Dan served on active duty in the Army Reserve. He placed first academically in his basic training company, and received training in the Military Police Corps. Following his release from active duty last July he rejoined the National Office staff. Dan's recreational activities include hunting, fishing, golf, and pistol shooting. He is the son of Mrs. LaRue W. Colley of Raleigh, N. C. John joined the National Office staff after graduation in December 1964 from Florida Southern College, where he was a member of Beta Beta Chapter. While at Florida Southern, John served as Beta Beta's pledge trainer, chaplain, and alumni secretary. He majored in sociology and industrial arts and received a bachelor of science degree. From June to December 1965 John served on active duty in the Army Reserve. He graduated in the top five per cent of his basic training unit at Fort Jackson, S. C., and on completion of his active duty was presented a special letter of commendation from the deputy chief of staff at Third U.S. Army Headquarters. John's family moved to Gainesville, Fla. after he graduated from Bradford County High School in Starke, Fla., so he now calls Gainesville home. 30
