Editot·'s Note: The cover of our November issue of the STAR AND LAMP depicts perhaps one of the most impot·tant actions of the delegates at the t·ecently held 82nd Supreme Chapter. It r efl ects the concern of our membet·s fot· the presently existing trend of violent diss ension in America. Below is a reproduction of a portion of the Oct. 4, 1968, "Congressional Record," in which the r esolution is presented to Congt·ess by Bt·othet· Syd Herlong, R ept·esentative from Fl?t·ida.

HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. of Florida In the House of Representatives Thursday, October 3, 1968 Mr. HERLONG: "Mr. Speaker, because of the great amount of unrest that seems to be prevalent on many college and university campuses in the United States at this time, I think it is of great significance that at the 32nd Supreme Chapter meeting of my college fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi, the undergraduate delegates present at the convention adopted a resolution supporting the right of dissent and demonstrations within proper and reasonable limits, but also calling on all other such organizations to join with them in a concerted effort to provide constructive leadership on all college and university campuses toward the goal that student controversies may be presented within the bounds of established school procedures and with due regard for the rights of fellow students. I commend these undergraduates for this action and include a copy of the resolution in the CONGRESSIONAL RECORD."

In a recently held "high finance" meeting at Lambda Chapter, University of Georgia, the three-year-old son of Lambda's past chapter advisor, Tom Dalton, purchased a $100.00 debenture bond from Lambda Housing Corporation. The money used to purchase the bond by Tommy Dalton, III, was all pennies. They were delivered to the chapter house by Tommy's father in a heavily laden pillow case. Tommy had saved the pennies over a two-year period. In the picture above, Tommy receives his bond from chapter Archon, Steve Woods, in exchange for the pennies. The money collected from the sale of such 30 year, 4% debenture bonds by the Lambda Housing Corporation will be used to retire the existing $30,000 mortgage on the present chapter house and land so that the construction of a badly needed new chapter home can begin. An additional $25,000 worth of bonds must be sold. Alumni interested in the purchase of a bond should contact the Chapter at 930 South Milledge, Athens, Georgia 30601, for information. 5




SUPREME CHAPTER ACTIONS National Housing Plan Adopted Virginia Beach-In the recently held Pi Kappa Phi 32nd Supreme Chapter at Virginia Beach, Va., the 300 undergraduate and alumni delegates present adopted a housing plan designed to provide competitive housing by 1976 for each chapter of the Fraternity not already in such facilities. The program had been developed under the guidance of the National Council and Executive Director of the Fraternity. It includes provisions for the construction of fraternity housing through the utilization of cash funds provided by Pi Kappa Phi Properties, Inc., a national fraternity subsidiary, undergraduate chapter funds, anticipated alumni funds, and lease-purchase funds secured from major lending institutions. The total line-of-credit required for this construction program is in excess of 3.6 million dollars. Two major mortgage and construction firms have expressed an interest in participating in this ambitious construction program, which reflects the forward thinking momentum permeating the ranks of Pi Kappa Phi. Scheduled implementation of the housing program is to begin with the construction of a chapter home for Alpha Eta Chapter, Samford Uni6

versity, and a lodge facility for Alpha .A.IP~~ Mercer University. Occupancy dates for th~~ two units are tentatively scheduled for septe l ber, 1969. Ch; ·or'

In conjunction with the passage of the ?at~·o' al housing program, implementing legislll \ was adopted which will allow the National c~of cil and the Trust Investment Committee 0 11, Kappa Phi to commit up to 50 per cent of ~ Star and Lamp Trust Funds for prograJI'IJI1 housing needs.

With the support of many Oakland cttJZ il ' Brother Miller is pushing his idea of develoP ~1 1 a series of "vest pocket" parks throughout 11 city that will not have a blade of grass, a tr , or flower on them.


According to Raymond, "Our present plll'~ aren't serving 80 per cent of the people.

In addition to talking about park development, Brother Miller has devoted much of his time and money to carrying through his ideas. According to Oakland Park Director, John Peetz, "I don't know of a park in Oakland that Mr. Miller and his wife Inez have not contributed thousands of dollars to help develop."

A native of Colorado, Miller and his wife picked Oakland for their home 26 years ago. Brother Miller lives on a beautiful 21-acre estate, which boasts an olympic size pool that he has never been in and a fabulous home built during the Korean War with boiler plate off an old battleship used for support.

Uses/ Abuses urged them to set a city on fire would probably not have constituted a clear and present danger; most persons would probably have agreed that his freedom to use inflammatory language was less objectionable than the precedent set if this right were challenged. Today, when so much mischief is afoot, it is at least a debatable question whether or not the same attitude is the wise one. No liberty is safe unless a margin of abuse is permitted. Within limits, the lunatic fringe is a valuable safeguard to freedom of speech. It is like a buffer state in political geography. If a fanatic is permitted liberty, that of reasonable men is less likely to be attacked. But the question of what constitutes a legitimate margin of license is one we cannot answer in the abstract but must decide in the light of prevailing conditions. "Any government is better than no government." So wrote Hobbes, whose realism often approached the cynical. And his pronouncement is almost absolutely true because anarchy itself is nearly unbearable and because anarchy almost inevitably results, first in the government of the gangster, and soon after in that of the supergangster called dictator. During the happiest periods of a nation's history, society seems to be threatened by neither anarchy nor the police state. Much of Europe and North America seemed to be in that happy period during the late 19th century and the first decade of the 20th. But the period was doomed when the Russian Revolution ended in a dictatorship which was the predictable outgrowth of the anarchistic liberalism of theoretical communism. Because disorder provides the would--· be dictator with "necessity, the tyrant's plea," Hitler and Mussolini could use fear of Communist dictatorship to establish their own. The "free nations" have, ever since, been unsuccessfully attempting to reassure themselves with an, "It can't happen here."

Twin Threats and Storm Centers Of course, it could. In all troubled times-and ours is surely a troubled time-the twin threats of anarchy and the police state are clear and present dangers. Such things as campus rebellions against faculty regulations and the 14

C., in the f'll States in 1968? _,~ insistence of popular novelists upon their right to push farther and farther the limits of free speech are both minor storm centers. Black Power and Civil Disobedience are obviously more serious aspects of the same, and they raise in the most distressing form the question: What freedoms are, under present conditions, tolerable? The present seems to be one of those times conspicuously exposed to the opposite threats of anarchy and the police state. Riots which would have been unthinkable a decade ago are now phenomena expected to recur, and they are, in fact, local and temporary outbreaks of anarchy. So, on a less serious scale, are the anti-draft disturbances, which are defiances rather than protests. Yet the attempts to control both the riots and defiance have been gingerly : though they may represent clear and present dangers, they might also become the excuse for the gradual development of a police state. Both threats are, it seems to me, very real; and they are not to be avoided by abstract definitions of freedom or even by logical limits set to specific freedoms. They can be met only by pragmatic decisions made as such decisions are always made when they are successful-in the light of the specific situation and its whole context. At the moment, an important part of the context is the general atmos -

During the past nine months the Chicago alumni have formed a new and active alumni chapter. Luncheon meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month at the Palmer House -Town & Country Restaurant. All alumni in the area, alumni passing through Chicago, or undergraduates in Chicago are cordially invited to join us for luncheon. Reservations are not necessary. Our active membership includes alumni from over 15 undergraduate chapters. The first fall project was Rush at I. I. T., where the Alpha Phi Chapter ended up with 25 top notch pledges. Our second project will be laying the groundwork to bring Beta Sigma back to Northern Illinois' campus, and to assist the Upsilon alumni in their work at the University of Illinois. Our third project is to publish a Chicago Area Alumni Directory in October. The officers of the chapter are: President, John Phillips- Alpha Theta '60 (Michigan State), who is a National Convention Representative at the Palmer House; SecretaryTreasurer, Bill Beckman, Beta Beta '66 (Florida Southern), who is manager of the new Sears Men's Shop at Oakbrook Shopping Center and the new Area VIII Governor for Pi Kappa Phi ; Membership Co-Chairman is Wylie MummaAlpha Phi '65 (I.I.T.). Wylie is an architect with Conne & Dornbush in Chicago. John Parsons-Beta Zeta '55 (Simpson College), is serving as Rush and Membership CoChairman. John is engaged in Systems work at Michigan Chemical Corporation in Chicago. Senior Advisor to the Alumni Association is Tom Porter-Xi '23 (Roanoke College). Tom recently retired from the Journal Box Servicing Corporation in Chicago.

' vvoul? greatly increase member pa~ lCipalde ln this way you will get many different Dosa~ anct certainly some good arguments against con~IbJe stereotyped answers. I would push for Drobroversy in the Fraternity by giving out our elns to the chapters and saying, "Help,




v E:



what's the answer?" In other words, I would throw major problems out to the chapters and hope that controversy among the members would aid in their solutions. Dick Howard: If I were Executive Director, I would certainly push controversy, because only through argument and debate can an organization hope to push forward. In most cases, controversy brings an answer or at least a means to a remedy for many situations. In this manner, at least some progress can be made. Ed Savage: I can't agree with either Dick or Clarence, because stirring up controversy in the Fraternity would only draw bad publicity and individual chapters could then expect more restrictions from their universities as a result of the ensuing publicity. Paul Jirka: I don't believe that bad publicity from controversy within a chapter would result. However, controversy over trivial matters should be discouraged. None the less, matters dealing with prominent aspects of fraternity life, i.e., finances, .rush, pledging duties, etc., must be advocated as controversial issues. Gary Baker: Yes, definitely, controversy should be presented. However, this controversy should not be limited to the Fraternity's weak points, such as finances, etc., but should also include our success, our top leaders, and the how and why we were able to achieve such success. Often times when the Fraternity does something well, the elements of success are overlooked by all but a few; and thus, a tremendous amount of workable knowledge is lost. Brooks Mosher: I must dissent and agree with Ed Savage, because there is enough controversy in the average chapter which causes only confusion and disorganization. This controversy can start in the smallest chapter and spread into the national organization. II. Would you try to expand ou1· fraternity as ra.pidly as possible, aiming for quantity rather than quality? Bill Roberts: It should be apparent that if a group is not a credit to Pi Kappa Phi as a colony, then it would stand little chance of being a credit to us as a chapter. Size has never denoted a good chapter; likewise, size cannot necessarily make us a better national fraternity. We should look at a prospective new group of men as we would look at a prospective new pledge, and no doubts should exist when we give them the right to 21



DIALOGUE wear the badge of Pi Kappa Phi. Ron Thorn: Here I think we will all unanimously agree that quantity without quality would be disastrous to our fraternity. Pi Kappa Phi owes much of its success to the fact that it has not only been selective in the individuals to be chosen but also in its group expansion. Paul Jirka: To be sure, Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity's main objective is not to simply see how large and extensive it can develop a network of chapters. The primary objective should be the attainment of a strong, united, and closely built organization; of qualified, devoted, and quality possessed individuals with the future aim of creating a geographic representation of chapters from these United States. John O'Neil: What do we wish to be? I think our idea of expansion as it is now is the best. Quality is much better than quantity. Gary Baker: . . . It is more essential that we build strong chapters for a stronger national; and not many chapters for a larger national. Dick Howard: I don't mean to throw cold water on the discussion of this question, but I feel that the Fraternity should expand as rapidly as possible, because as the old saying goes, "There is strength in numbers." A larger number of chapters would help the Fraternity grow stronger, fraternally, politically, and financially. This idea of quantity rather than quality always strikes a sour note with me, because to me this phrase denotes a feeling of low standards. The word "quality" can mean so many things, and they are all so difficult to define. III. Realizing the past history of undergraduate orientation, would you put inc?·eased emphasis on alumni chapters? Ed Savage: This is a good idea and is one phase that needs quick attention. There seems to be little to draw the alumni to the individual chapters and as a result there 'is little active participation by the alumni. The alumni chapters ... they need to be made to feel that their services are badly needed, and I am sure that our graduate brothers would then gladly and willingly help. Ed Tucker: In developing alumni chapters, emphasis should be placed on orienting the alumni toward the fact that the Fraternity is geared to aiding our young men in the undergraduate chapters. The purpose of the fraternity is to 22

work to help our younger members sociallY,~~ demically and in developing their leaders 1 abilities. Alumni chapters through their contar81 with the undergraduate chapters can helP complish these objectives. ~rooks Mosher: Yes, the alumni of Pi J{~~ Phi have a better understanding of the NatJO 1 organization. Additionally, through alumni ebB an• h ter functions, the rushee or pledge has a c 1 to benefit from the wisdom of the older grB'I ua~.

Paul Jirka: Undergraduate orientation sho~; each brother that his main responsibilitY ill \, chapter is financial integrity. ConsequentlY• 31 an alumnus brother, the primary step th 1.• would initiate would be an overall increase . . d ·niO ' a Iumm payments. Dues would be divide 1 1, hierarchy with both alumni and undergradU~ participation. The alumni funds would, the 11 fore, serve to supplement the undergradUB chapters' budget. ., I· Ron Thorn: I strongly disagree with pau, co:nments, which seem to indicate that th~ o;; thmg the alumni can offer is money. This 15 1~ • prime reason why we have inadequate a]uP~~ participation. Everyone must remember th!ltb;. has many more years as an alumnus than }le as an undergraduate. . Ed Savage brings up the basic proble!Jl· ~; as alumni and you as undergraduates rn 1 change our approach if we, as Ed says, areb~ "Rejuvenate" a strong alumni backing. It to be a two way street. IV. Would you work for a general better· . M11' ment of undergraduate cooperation and "' derstanding? ~ Paul Jirka: Yes, alumni-undergraduate cooP~ ation should be an outstanding and definite a~P&'' of fraternity life. The alumni chapter pres•d u~ and the undergraduate chapter president shO c' develop programs which would require t00¢ 1ei 3 operation from both alumni and undergradll 9 Dick Howard: Paul 'is certainly correct, ~; chapter cannot exist without alumni ... .A)t!OI~' 0 hold the past experience necessary for a s!Jl running chapter.

essential that those who attend make a good report to their individual chapters of the insights gained. VI. Where should the Fraternity be going during the next ten years? Ed Savage: The Fraternity is going up, but from the national standpoint there is going to have to be an increase in the pay scale for the national office staff. This increase is necessary in order to keep the best qualified men ... The number of Traveling Counselors needs to be increased ... Precautions should be taken against a slow down in the number of chapters which we have been taking in each year. Clarence Spannuth: With changing times, a future program is necessary. Maybe a ten year plan. Without one ... the Fraternity w'ill just stagnate and die off. Basically, we should be moving in a direction so that each Pi Kapp will be proud of his fraternity and a better person because of it. There should be a stress on better understanding between national and the chapters. Ron Thorn: We should be moving toward a greater understanding and cooperation between the chapters and the national organization and between chapters . . . strong chapters should help the weaker chapters in each district. Brooks Mosher: In the next ten years, areas of expansion should be planned and weighed for prospective new chapters. Plans should also be made to reactivate those chapters which have lost their charters, and more alumni chapters need to be formed where there is a large concentration of Pi Kapps. Dick Howard: I'd like to reinforce Brooks' comments about alumni chapters. Pi Kappa Phi must have strong alumni chapters if it is to be a recognized national fraternity. I would put emphasis on alumni chapters, because not only are they a way of making undergraduate life immortal, but they are also a great source of talent to draw from, both for the National and for the undergraduate chapters. Clarence Spannuth: I would like for National to consider the idea of appointing part time advisors to every office and major committee. In this way there would be a person each chapter committee chairman could write concerning a specific problem. In other words, a regional president might be a rush advisor, while another might be a financial advisor. 23

Yes, there is a Durward Owen! Contrary to the opinion of some Pi Kapps, he does exist, and is not but the imaginary figure a number would declare. At the age of thirty-eight he is tall, skinny, and topped off by white hair-not gray. He is the Executive Director (by action of the 32nd Supreme Chapter) of Pi Kappa Phi, and has been the Fraternity's Administrator since July of 1959. He claims his employment was a "job forced on me," yet those who know of his feeling of obligation to Pi Kappa Phi have not believed this accusation. Instead, they insist his "love addiction" commenced when he was initiated by Xi Chapter at Roanoke College in 1950. He has always remained in awe at "having been unanimously selected for membership by sixty-four assumedly intelligent upper classmen in spite of being such a non-descript nobody." "They truly created in me a desire to become a better man." Brother Owen has been accused of taking a rather drastic chance placing his, and in turn his f amily's future in the employment of the Fraternity. He sees no problem here, for he " . . . once asked for and received a transfer from the United States Air Force to the Army during the Korean War. The Army was more intelligent and later made me a Captain."


Following graduation in 1955, he W~ 5 i ployed by another Pi Kapp in the truck 111 011 dustry. Later a brief encounter with gr~ P:路 studies, financed by service station owners~;) automobile leasing and public relations, co~~ tioned him to the wide variety of knowledge!. abilities required in fraternity managexne!l

Difference ••• \Nithout Division This story is old and doubtless you have heard it before, but it is also new and it changes with each passing year. As each generation mellows with age, there appears with greater intensity that phenomenon referred to as the "Generation Gap." Much comment has been made concerning this "gap" and some of the comments have been worthwhile. However, not enough has been said in a positive manner about the "gap" in relation to Pi Kappa Phi. In order to more properly survey the situation we must look first to one of the prob1ems involved in this separation of the generations and then see how it is solved in Pi Kappa Phi. Possibly the greatest complaint those on the higher rungs of the generation ladder have with those of us on the lower ones is the naturally rebellious nature of youth. The rebelling youth can be found even in the Fraternity. We don't vent our frustrations in the same way you did. Some swallowed goldfish, others started "panty raids," but it was all in fun. Nowadays some people cram live human bodies into small places in hopes of a record or stage marathons of various types. Yes, we find different things to do, but the greatest amount of cordiality is still behind the act. Some, who claim to know, charge that your generation accepted things at face value and my generation refuses to do so. While I agree that mine is a terrifically inquisitive generation, it does not seem possible that the questioning college students is such a new thing that mine is the first generation to enjoy the privilege. When Pi Kapps boldly left school in the 1940's to travel to the battlefields, I strongly doubt that many failed to look at the issues involved and ventured all simply to answer the call of emotion. Indeed not, most probably looked and saw a dreadful menace -pushing a spellbound army over a hel-pless continent and knew that it must be stopped. However, my generation seems more rebellious as 'i t faces the conflict in Southeast Asia. The young men of today who trouble themselves to study the situation choose to either volunteer their services, refuse to go, or nebulously bide their time awaiting the decision of the "local board." This indecision may be the result of a greater confusion of issues, but you may note that I know no Brother who selects the second choice. In addition, one must remember that youth may appear more rebellious today because as methods outside the Fraternity change, those inside must also be altered. Often this change appears to be a difference in direction which to some would seem unfortunate. 26

GUESS WHO In this issue of the STAR AND LAMP, we are beginning a series of pictures of selected alumni and clues to aid you in their identity. For the individual who correctly identifies our mystery Pi Kapp not later than January 1, 1969, we will send him a copy of the 1968 Directory of Membership. In the case of correct duplicate answers, the one with the earliest post mark wins. Each new issue of the STAR AND LAMP will contain an additional clue to the identity of our mystery alumnus until he is correctly identified. Every Pi Kappa Phi is eligible to participate, even the "mystery man" himself-after all, 'i t has been a long time. Our clue for this issue is: "A North Carolina Tar Heel was our man; but since those days, he has forsaken us for Kennedy Land." 27



Sensationalism in the American media of mass communications has become an integral part of the media scheme of news presentation. This is due largely to the intensity of media competition and the subsequent requirement that each news medium provide a product which will sell more papers, magazines, etc., or which will attract more viewers and listeners. Objective-the facts-reporting has been supplanted by interpretative reporting which, as a result of human bias, is often times misleading. Although the accompanying reprint, which is only a part of the UPI release, Fraternity M ember-ship on Decline in U. S., cites Gamma of Pi Kappa Phi as being a model of what a fraternity should be, let us examine the facts on fraternities. Decline of fraternity membership taken out of context implies the worst of the situation, as there has been a steady increase in the number of young men pledging fraternities and the number of chapters organized on old or new fraternity campuses. The growth of Pi Kappa Phi, as depicted in the annual report of the Aug. 1968 Star and Lamp, is indicative of the typical fraternity's growth. Specifically, for the period July, 1967 to July, 1968, 20 campuses gained a new national fraternity or sorority chapter, which reflects only a portion of the 67 chapter net increase in fraternities for 1967 over 1966. Additionally, 49 campuses have "opened-up" for national fraternities for the first time since July, 1964, and the trend continues upward. The number of individual members increased some 5 per cent from 2,141,673 in 路1966, to 2,247,738 in 1968, a gain which is typical of the past 23 years. Where then is the "decline"? The growth in fraternity membership has failed to keep pace with the rapidly accelerated growth of the student population and has dropped in recent years from about 12.0 to 9.2 per cent of the total student population. Herein lies the basis for the declarations from the prophets of doom, which are made without recognition of the fact that much of the decline is due to unrealistic restrictions placed on the "Rush" of fraternities by the school administrations. But as more and more four year colleges and universities begin to open their campuses to national fraternities, and as national fraternities begin to organize on the junior colleges that are springing up across the country, the ratio of Greeks to non-Greeks should begin to approach a more healthy 10 per cent ratio.

On 92 Campuses Nationally, fraternities have gained entrance at 92 campuses in the last decade and now have 4,000 chapters, but the percentage of Greeks among the total of students has been drifting downward.



BERKELEY, Calif. (UP!) ; The. fraternity system at j e Umversity of California, Ust as on some other big carnpuses, is on the decline.

8 .~'They used to line up outth e our door for rushing by e hundreds," says Ted Mc~lure at the Phi Delta Theta .;use. "A brother would say, ou, you and you-bug out'." th l\Tow theâ&#x20AC;˘ Phi Delts, one of t¡ e n a t'Ions largest fraternihles, have 30 active members g ere and only 14 live in their w~~nd three - story mansion, of lch was the college home J William Randolph Hearst,




"I think the fraternities really in trouble," said B Udent body president, Dick rneahrs. He noted fraternity ernbership has declined to 13 a Per cent of the eligibles nd Predicts one-third of the ~~I?us' 42 chapters will die In a few years.


This situation does not please school administrators, both here and on some other campuses, although not long ago some of them were wishing the system would collapse. At Berkeley the administrators argue that sman group living provides leadership opportunities, lasting friendships and a chance to identify with something values hard to achieve on the huge 28,000-student campus. Had Monopoly in '30s In the 1930s, the fraternities and sororities had a virtual monopoly on campus talent, including poets as well as athletes. Lemmon said one reason for the fraternities' strength was their housing. State universities didn't offer much dormitory space, and nonGreeks were driven to less

desirable boarding houses. Now, Lemmon said, dormitory accommodations are at least as attractive as the fraternities. Original Rah Boys What's got the Greeks in trouble, many administrators say, is sticking to ideas formed in the era of raccoon coats and goldfish swallowing. Their image is one of political conservatism, wild parties, disregard for social problems and standards of values rapidly being rejected by many students. Set Good Exam pie College deans cite as a model the local chapter of Pi Kappa Phi, down three years ago to only five members. Now it has 56. The chapter campaigned to attr¡a ct individualists. In intramural athletics, Pi Kappa Phi will bench a star who hasn't practiced and play someone less talented who has, and the fraternity emphasizes brotherhood of all men. Brotherhood, after all, is what fraternities' founders intended.

A New Record of Interest to All Pi Kapps




Rare is the organization having its early history available in the spoken words of those who . were intimately involved. In the case of a fraternity, this is even more unusual. Pi Kappa Phi is fortunate to have a remarkable record available, recording for all to hear the beginning days of the Fraternity in the words of two of its three original Founders. In 1961, just prior to the death of Founder Mixon, Brother Richard Young of Charlotte, N. C., went to Charleston, S. C., equipped with a tape recorder. There he visited the two surviving Founders, L. Harry Mixon and Simon Fogarty. During this visit he interviewed the two, questioning them of their recollection of the creation and early days of the Fraternity they founded. Dick Young, himself a significant part of the story of Pi Kappa Phi, was at that time a reporter for the Charlotte News and a quite capable interviewer. For a number of years in the 1930's and 1940's, Brother Young was the editor of The Star and Lamp. He has


always remained interested and involved ~ jP affairs of Pi Kappa Phi, and his assistanc pc multitude of areas has been valuable throtJg the years. . . . rie1 Th.Is new record 1s o.f t~e long playmg V!lrer; and IS most unusual m 1ts contents. T~e tnt niscing of these two fine men, both IIl pd' eightieth year, is remarkably clear and ~cP standable.
