A NEWSLETTER FROM YOUR NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP CHAIRMAN

My Brothers : During the past two years, all of us involved in the academic world have become acutely aware of the unsettled conditions that exist on the campuses of some of our colleges and universities throughout America. Unlike the past, the unrest has not been localized in one area or another of our country. But, rather, students on campuses in all regions of the United States, as well as those in some foreign countries, have allowed an emotional approach to the problems of modern existence to prevail over a more rational, peaceful approach, and the result has been disruption of classes which most students can illafford to miss, a destruction of property, both public and private, for which the students or their parents will eventually pay, and a general disillusionment among the alumni of those institutions at which the upsets have occurred. One of the most noticeable and most unfortunate results of such student action has been the withdrawal of support of the schools by those alumni who have contributed millions of dollars annually to support faculty salaries, to provide tuition supplements and scholarships for students, without which many students could not even attend colleges or universities, and to construct the facilities most institutions desperately need to educate an ever-increasing student population. Just as our Fraternity needs the support of its alumni in order to remain solvent, so does a college or university have to be subsidized by its graduates in order to exist. The two major reasons for student unrest are, in my estimation, the constantly and rapidly 2

changing social scene that is America and[~~ attempts by many students at the alm?st ·tu· possible task of making an established mstl uit tion change its policies and functions to ;ave student demands. The American people di· demanded an ever-growing supply of comrl1°ut· ties ranging from instant homes to instant ~jed tonholes, and the manufacturers have suPP}licb them. But there are at least two items W ell· cannot be supplied instantly: babies and edUore tion-at least, not yet! We are spoiled to t_h.e c of by affluence and the consequent a vailabd~ty tbe almost anything we demand, but Nature; ~n tbe case of babies ; and academic institutions, 1nwitb case of learning, are patient and careftJl two their products, for what they yield are the cb commodities we value most: wisdom and ell other! t'o!IS

Let us, too, be patient with out institu 1 us as they try to adapt to modern demands. Let \V~ too, be careful in our labors, so that whate~erwill produce may be so well-constructed that 1t atendure as well as have those old truths w_e pi tend classes to Jearn. Let us, as Brother~ III lid . Kappa Phi, become examples of leadershiP lllli· 1 responsibility, so that all the colleges an? uac· versities at which we have Chapters w!Il Jlle 1 knowledge our worth and our desire to beco s involved in school affairs and will take st ~1 to assure us a reasonable role in the sc community. Let us take a rational stand in this matter·

Dear Mr. Editor: M I was very proud to note in your ay, 1969, issue of "The Star and L amp" that Mr. George Grant had been named "Mr. Pi Kappa Phi." When my chapter, Gamma Alpha, Was initiated into our frat ernity, we Were honored to have Mr. Grant atf~nd the ceremonies. If a finer man wes, I have yet to meet him. Mr. Grant's service to his country and fraternity certainly merit him the name, "Mr. Pi Kappa Phi." Mr. Grant is the second Alabama man to receive this honor. Needless ~,0 say, Mr. L eo Pou has also been tagged" "Mr. Pi Kappa Phi." We thank Mr. George G1·ant and Mr. L eo Pou for enabling Alabama Pi Kappa Phi's to swell with extra Pride. Two great men have been justly honored by their fraternity. My congratulations to those responsible. Fraternally, George L. Sadler (Gamma Alpha) P.S. I was sure glad to see that you complied with Brother Eli R eese's request and cancelled his subscription. His letter sounded like he would be from a place like Walnut Creek. (Calif.)

Durward Owen Editor-in-Chief The Fraternity regrets the loss of Brother Tom Dalton's services as Director of Alu11_1ni Affairs. Tom was the second to fill thiS Position and did a commendable job. He joined the National Office staff June 1, 1968. His resignation effective July 1, 1969, was understood to be a necessity in view of a new job opportunity offered him. He b~­ came the Assistant to the Director of Agncultural Experiment Stations, University of Georgia. In the new positio?, Brot~er Dalton will be Director of Public Relatwns. and Publications for the Experiment StatJ?ns. This is a function for which he was specifi~­ ally educated at the University of Georgia where he received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Journalism.

drug usage is so common that sensationalized copy about it is all that will sell? "A r e today's laws regulating the use and/or sale of nar cotics and the hallucinag ens r ealistic or archaic?" MIKE HILL: I have never given this a great deal of thought; therefore, I just don't know what to say. I do feel, however, that maybe they should be reviewed for their relevance. I will add, however, that my thinking along this line is influenced by my knowledge of the debacle of the anti-liquor laws during the "prohibition era." SAM PARRY: I definitely feel that the antidrug laws and the entire judiciary process is archaic, badly so. The early laws were established before there were the many drugs and acids we have today. The laws need to be brought up-to-date . . . streamlined and strengthened. Additionally, we must stop handicapping those men who are trying to protect us. JEFF WOJCIECHOWSKI: I feel that our laws regarding the sale and use of drugs are outdated ... I am referring specifically to the treatment of the user. In most cases, the addicted persons are regarded by the courts as criminals because of possession and use of drugs instead of mentally ill, which they are. I don't think the laws should be so lax as to invite everyone to venture into the use of drugs, but neither should they needlessly punish the person who is snarled in the trap of drugs. BILL MARKS: I disagree with Sam and Jeff. I think the current laws are on the right track; however, I feel they should more strictly control the trafficing in drugs and hallucinagens, as some of these compounds have proven to be dangerous-both to the user and the user's offspring. CHARLES HOMBERG: Both Bill and Jeff have made good points and I agree in part with both of them ... Certainly the laws should be strict about the sale and use of heroin and LSD, but the real legal emphasis should be on punishing the "pushers," manufacturers, and smugglers. The users and addicts should get better medical and psychological help, rather than arbitrary jail sentences. "What are the sociological implications of drug/ hallucinagens use for the individual?" BILL MARKS: The users of the drugs, at least the hard core users who admit their addiction, have chosen to remove themselves from society's mainstream ... Now, they are viewed as an alien to society per se. What these individuals don't realize is that once they are "tuned out," which is relatively easy for them to accomplish, it is extremely difficult to get back into their place in the society. SAM PARRY: Drugs make a person unfit to take his place in society. If a man is always on 6

"What approaches should be used to ed1J,cate our youth to the potential hazards of drug use?" ·vate MIKE HILL: Greater public and ~rl er· awareness of the dangers of drug usage IS cef· tainly needed. I have been impressed by the the 1 forts put forth by such organizations as. tY American Cancer Society, Tuberculosis socl~ng: etc., in their fight against cigarette smo~l ug Why can't the same things be done against /cts usage?

Rensselaer and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is a private technological university which last year had an enrollment of 4,800 students from 45 states and 42 foreign countries. It is located in Troy, New York, which is noted as an industrial and research center maintained by several large corporations. Rensselaer's educational goals today are rooted in those upon which it was established in 1824 when Stephen Van Rensselaer, its founder, organized it as a school where students would be taught to apply scientific principles to the common purposes of life. Amos Eaton, the first head of RPI, developed the first engineering curriculum to be created in this country, and The Rensselaer School gave the first engineering degree--that of civil engineering-in 1835. The second RPI head, B. Franklin Greene, lengthened the course of study from one to four years and made plans for a new, expanded campus. Unfortunately, the Civil War disrupted the school's development and a fire destroyed existing buildings. The school was shortly rebuilt, however, on the site it now occupies.

A LffiERTY BELL IS RINGING FOR A PI KAPP There's a small liberty bell ringing in Charlotte, N. C., for Pi Kapp Edwin L. Jones, Jr. (Mu-'44), and there's not a crack in it. It is bell number 0111 in a series being produced by the Newcomen Society. Cast in the same Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London, Brother Jones' bell is an exact replica of the original bell, made in 1752. The replica weighs about 20 pounds and stands 131!2 inches high. It is one of about 2,400 such bells which will be produced for the bicentennial of the American Revolution in 1776. "We thought we'd like to have one here," said Brother Edwin Jones, Jr., President of J. A. Jones Construction Company. "We plan to use it to open our meetings of the Board of Directors and other groups." An inscription at the top of the bell proclaims liberty and indicates that the bell was made on orders of officials of Pennsylvania. "Thomas Lester of London made me in 1752," the inscription says.

These are the years of the "big question".and Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity is definitely part of the era. The administration of Pi Kappa Phi for the past decade has witnessed a parade of triumphs and tragedies, yet each event ' success and failure, has in its own way led us ever forward. Remaining are the questions - viable and penetrating - which are in the minds of alumni and undergraduates alike. Where is the Fraternity going and how will it get there- but first, where has it been? An alumnus and an undergraduate have presented a succession of questions_ the Executive Director has answered- together, questions and answers, they constitute his annual report to the Fraternity.


1 $4:

How is the National Office housed, equipped, and staffed now as compared to Ten years ago? Then we had a two-room, street-level office, with one much needed window air-conditioner. The equipment was about what you would expect to find in an office of a medium-sized church building. Our staff consisted of the Executive Secretary, a Traveling Counselor (for five months of that school year), and two typists. ' We now have a nine-room, colonial-style building, air-conditio'ned, which is bursting from the seams and suffering from its forty-two years of age. The structure is sufficient for the present, but will require replacement in five years if we are to keep up with our current growth pattern. Our equipment is completely sufficient for present needs- what additional services the future demands may change that. The ,Executive Director administers with an Assistant to the Executive Director, a Director of Undergraduate Affairs, a Field Secretary (we all travel as if we were field men), an Office Manager , and two typists. We need more but that requires additional income.

You mentioned the Fraternity's growth pattern- Are you referring to expansion?

1959-19

To a great extent- yes, although there are oi:her areas of growth to consider. During these ten years we have chartered twenty-one new undergraduate chapters and rechartered three former 路inactive chapters.

Does the Fraternity have ari Expansion Policy or Program?

lega

The National Council maintains a preferred list of ten schools and requires the Executive J)irector to commeuce a colony on at least one of these campuses a year. For example, we start the development of a colony at the University of Oklahoma in_September of this year. This will be for the reactivation of the now defunct Alpha Gamma Chapter.

~he equl

We follow a program of building outward from existing chapters' strength. Until this past year, our efforts were primarily directed towards solidifying our position in the Southwestern United States. Now we are moving outward into the Midwest and also into the Pennsylvania and New Jersey area. This year we are also moving ahead on the West Coast. What is the greatest problem faced in the Expansion effort? Money, personnel , tirrie- you name it! Yet the greatest need is for alumni and undergraduates to realize the National Office staff cannot do it all. We should have a national committee responsible for expansion with the National Office staff supporting the committee~s efforts. What other areas of growth were you referring to? In 1959 we had fifty-one chapters - fifteen of these chapters with less than ten undergraduate members, and an additionill seven chapters with less than fifteen members. Now, with sixty-six chapters, each one is returning to school in September with more members, the smallest having twenty returning. Our average undergraduate chapter is 1959 had nineteen members, while this year the average chapter has thifty-nine members. Thirteen new pledges and eleven new initiates were average per chapter, while now they average twenty-two pledges and nineteen initiates per year.

Its initial effort has been spectacular; however, to be 1 ~ 01 Pletely successful in the future existing chapter houses need to be 0 rnect over to the Properties by local alumni housing corporations. enWnership, legally speaking, is conveyed to Properties; and therefore, . nable's the corporation to pyramid its assets and thereby gain greater nanc1al fexibility. .

So I agree, tell me what 1路 can do for the Foundation? The Pi Kappa Phi Men1orial Foundation's greatest need is to increase its assets- so, you can give, or assist in its fund raising efforts. This educational endowment did receive its IRS exemption during the past ten years; and therefore, gifts of any nature are deductible for the donor. Scholarship loans and grants for undergraduate Pi Kapps are its prime purpose, and there is really a greater need for such than the average alumnus would believe as he views our affluent society. Is the Fraternity System dying? No, and in fact has experienced greater growth during the previous ten years than in any other decade of its history.

NUMBER OF CHAPTERS

Yet, the communication media would lead me to believe otherwise? A misconception without fact. I will agree that its effectiveness is diminishing- and this I feel is a definite weakness on the part of all fraternities, including Pi Kappa Phi. Our undergraduates do not seem to be as active on their campus as they should be, and in fact arc negating their traditional leadership role to the more destructive elements such as the S.O.S. Perhaps this "noncommitted" attitude constitutes our greatest weakness today.

1959

Does this mean that the Pi Kappa Phi Undergraduates ar.e different from those of ten years ago? Yes, to some extent! I do not see them as heavy drug users, hippies, and destructive protesters. However, they do try to be more honest, more moral, and I believe, more intelligent. I fear that they are missing the trend toward idealism as being expressed by the more vocal student, and in too many instances, arc quite materialistic- contrary to their impression of themselves. In other words, one question they ask, which is contradictory to the basic student of today, is "What material value do I get out of it?''. This has never been a concept of fraternity life- where members have traditionally determined that they receive as they give. What is Pi Kappa Phi doing to meet the changes which are occurring? Not enough, I'm afraid! We do have a "Special Study Committee" working on the total concept of Pi Kappa Phi, and how it should relate to today's society. We have developed a leadership school know as Pi Kapp College to which we bring together the officc:rs of all undergraduate chapters for a week of discussion and instruction. We hope that therestructuring of the leadership of the rratcrnity will make it more viable. We continue to engage in too much non-relevant activity, and as a result do not seem to be as vibrant and exciting as we should be. I am thinking of time and money spent on homecoming displays, tloats, pranks, and other similar activities. Instead we should be sharing in the leadership determination of the campus, aiding the institution in meeting its goals and objectives, in service to the community at large, in expanding the educational program of the membership , and other more worthwhile objectives. Is Pi Kappa Phi assisting the destructive elements on campus? To an extent by not participating! We constitute that great majority of constructive students. My wish is for our membership to become a constructive part of the activists movement. Perhaps we shall sec this in the coming year. What do YOU consider the real purpose of Pi Kappa Phi to be? As so well-stated by another Executive Secretary- "to help a young man become a better man". I believe we are accomplishing this purpose- we can do a better job!

choose one of the most important facets of the molding of his character. College is a place to learn about yourself and to learn to stabilize yourself. Therefore, I feel that the fraternity one has chosen should be a body of men that reflect the ideals and outlooks that he most admires. Not only does it serve as a foundation for the building of character but more specifically, and something I've found to be more important, a Fraternity is the backbone a g uy needs to learn of the bad points of life as well as the good. Besides, there is always a friend to call upon.

PI KAPPA PHI MEMORIAL FOUNDATION The educational foundation of Pi Kappa Phi was created by action of the 22nd Supreme Chapter held in Detroit in September, 1948. The ~oun~ation was to be named. the Deve~eaux D. Rice Memorial Foundation m memory of Past Natwnal President, Devereaux Rice, who past away during his term as National President. In order to comply with provisions of the Internal Revenue Service code regulating tax exempt organizations, this educational foundation was reorganized and renamed the Pi Kappa Phi Memorial Foundation in 1963. It is administered by a board of life trustees appointed by the National Council of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. The Chairman of the Trustees is Brother George Helmrich, Birmingham, Michigan. The stated aim of the Foundation is to assist and promote the scholastic attainment of deserving young men, who in the opinion of the Trustees should be encouraged to attend or remain in college. During the past twenty years the Foundation has assisted a number of young Pi Kapps to finish their college education. One such individual is Brother Louis D. Templeman, whose thoughts on the Foundation were expressed in a recent letter to the Foundation Trustees. Louis "I windicated as at thethat, point of despair before I was informed that the Fraternity offered a student loan. Had it not been for the loan ($600) I would have been forced to discontinue school ... " " ... the memorial loan is the greatest benefit, besides that of the camaraderie of brotherhood, that I have received while being a member of the Fraternity. Ignorance of this loan (fund) is its main abuse. All brothers should be informed of its existence and of its value. It is unmistakably one of P_i Kappa Phi's greatest assets." Contributions a codicil in your will, memorial gifts, and beneficiaries are all means Pi Kapps can aid their Foundation, and all gifts

~hereby

are tax deductible. Contributions and inquiries should be sent to: Jack Bell, Treasurer 6764 Laloma Dr. Jacksonville, Fla. 32217 All checks, beneficiaries, or transfers should be made payable to P1. Kappa Phi Memorial Foundation. 29

If you know of the where abouts of Rushee, you are urged to get in touch with your National Office via the form below. You may attempt to apprehend the Rushee by yourself. He is not dangerous.
