along s a quiet sort but he was a man cast as str noble and exalted lines. With courage as a ong as the lion, his spirit was as gentle lttenta~ornan's. Possessed of a remarkable alist. he was an attractive conversationl:y enri hts store of knowledge was immense~ersar c ed by extensive travels and his contertai~n Was always rich in thought and enent. His ready wit sparkled with a

ti-·

freshness of resplendent dew 1n the early morn. As Supreme Treasurer of the Fraternity he was unduly careful in his work. The purse strings of the brotherhood were guarded with unflagging devotion by Brother Fogarty. Bill is gone. That is a fact ofttimes hard to realize. Sometime it is with difficulty that we make ourselves believe that he has passed on. Doubtless it is the spirit of the man that makes this belief persist. His was a spirit of kindliness, gentleness, and calmness that gripped the hearts and minds of those who knew him. That is no easy thing from which to be released. So we say, that though Brother Fogarty has gone on, his spirit lives on. Pi Kappa Phi has moved forward because of him. She will still feel the influence of his great spirit.

theirs will be a time of struggle and contest, work of body and mind for their place in the scheme of everyday life. To these seniors we would give a hint of warning. These years in college and association with your brothers in Pi Kappa Phi have been most pleasant. You will doubtless say they are the happiest of your life. So when you leave behind you the faces you have grown to love, carry with you the memories of your brothers and the times spent together. Be loyal to those back in college and in the chapter. Be loyal to the Fraternity that made this possible for you and gave you these pleasant associations and a college home for four years. It will be easy to forget . It will be so easy to lose ourself in the turmoil of making a living. But be big enough to show this fine sense of loyalty and no matter what comes and what goes ever think of Pi Kappa Phi. Of such is a Greater Fraternity.

Welcome Brothers I KAPPA PHI has taken another great step forward in her careful and consistent growth through the chartering of Psi Delta, local at Howard College, and the Orphic Society at Michigan State College. Psi Delta was made our Alpha-Eta chapter April 25, 1925, and Alpha-Theta was added to the roll May 9. Brother George E. Sheetz, executive secretary, was chief installing officer at both ceremonies. Pi Kappa Phi's position has been materially strengthened by the acquisition of these fine locals. Each has a splendid record of past achievements. Each was well established on their respective campuses and each had played well their part in character building for the young men who came under their influence. The Orphic Society, organized in 1917, was the owner of its chapter house. Psi Delta, organized in 1900, four years before Pi Kappa Phi was bo•r n, has plans for immediate construction. Within recent years the fraternity had resided in a handsome house on the edge [4

of the Howard campus, which was provided by the college on attractive terms. 1 It is needless to say that the Fraternity we · h· comes these newcomers to our ranks. Throl.lg out the length and breadth of the Order tber.e • is a feeling of gladness that these fine organt; zations in splendid institutions have sou~hb 11 our association and have joined hands '~~ us in the promulgation of the ideas and idea of brotherhood. el· To our new brothers, we bid a hearty '~~ 10 come.

and

rT.E death of Brother \iVilliam Fogarty, Supreme Treasurer of Pi Kappa Ph i, came as a distinct shock to the entire Fraternity, no less so to his intimates in Charleston than to those in distant states. It is sti ll with a feeling of strangeness, almost of bewilderment, that we attempt to record here some facts of his career, and our sense of the loss the Fraternity has sustained. "Little Bill," as he was affectionately known among T-'i Kapps in Charleston, was the youngest of six chi ldren. He was born in Charleston, September 30, 1890; so that at the time of his death he was but thirty-four years of age, just entering the prime of lif e. After graduating from the Charleston High School in June, 1906, he entered the College of Charleston in the fall of that year. In January, 1907, he was initiated into Alpha chapter of Pi Kappa Phi, and from that time to the clay of hi s Ieath his interest and devotion to its welfare never wavered. At college he was a member of the basketball and track teams for four consecutive years, a member of one of the literary teams and otherwise prominent in college activities. As a student he was thorough and energetic. He was in tu rn Secretary and Treasurer of Alpha chapter and served as a delegate to various conventions. He was grad uated with the class of '10. After his graduation he entered the business world and fina lly chose for hi s car eer the field of fire insurance. For a number of years he was identified with the Equ itable Fire Insurance Company of Charleston, holding a responsible po ition. A year or so before his death he was elected Secretary and Treasurer of the Hibernian M utu al Insurance Company of the same city. As such he was very successful in its management and had mapped out a course for its future prosperity. He was probably most active in fraternal matters in the affa irs of the Charleston A lumni chapter, and was its President twice and once its Treasurer. To him the chapter owed almost

In addition to the member of the new chapter and the installation officers there were present severa l members of the old local who had not taken the work, about twenty members of Omicron chapter, a majority of the Birmingham Alumni chapter and alumni members of 1\Jn, P i, Eta, Lambda, Ch i and Iota chapters. Droth r Clyde \\ 'an·en, the Archon of the chapter, acted a toa tma tcr. \\'hile space prohibit a li st of all of the speakers, it is sufficient to tate that there was a marked degree of fraternal pirit in evidence. The members of the new chapter showed a fine pirit and from the talk made there is no doubt but that they expect to carry on and to accomplish great things for Pi Kappa Phi. In one sense it i sad to hear the members of an old local speak so dearly of their fir t 10\·e a wa done upon this occasion, however the members of old Psi Delta realized that they were ente ring into a larger field and that they wou ld be of greater service to them eh·es as well as to others. It was time for Psi Delta to go National, it was fitting that they should go Pi Kappa l hi. Doth being founded about the same time at small Southern colleges they had many thing in common. r\lpha-Eta has had a gloriou past as a local, but the present members are not willing to stop at that- tht!y see beyond their own chapter-they see Pi Kappa Phi in its Tational scope. There is plenty of opportunity for our new chapter to be of service not only to them elves, but to Howard Coll ege and to P i Kappa Phi throughout the nation. Alpha-Eta will remain our baby chapter for only fourteen days for by the time this article is in print ,\Ipha-Thcta will claim this honor. i\I ay Alpha-Eta ever be a shrine of devoted brotherhood and may he and her si ter tate chapter Omicron, join hand in hand in exemplifying the principle and ideal of Pi Kappa Phi 111 the State of A labama .

At present the Psi Delta Fraternity is occupying a ho use owned by Howard College. This h ouse is located on the camp us. Feeling, h owever, that the time has come when the fraternity sho uld own its own home, we have laid our plans for a new home, to be ready for occupan cy next year. In order to realize this dream our alumni haY e co m e to our aid. Colonel VI. A . Berry ha s m ade us the following proposition which will make possible t h e er ection of the new h ome. 'l'he active members and the alumni are to raise $3,000, Co lonel Berry will make us a loan of $15,000, and the coll ege will give us a lot. This would give our h ome an approximate valu e of $20,000.

effort of the Baptists was the founding of a chool which fitted in well with the life of th day. The Founding of Howard College In November, ] 84], the State Convention in es i n at Talladega decided to establish and endow a co ll ege or university of high character and "in connection with the college or university" to maintain a theological depa r tment. \ Vhil e t h e earli er manual t rainin g sch oo l h ad been maintained exclusively for stud nts of the ministry, the new in titution was to be a college or univers ity in connection with which a theological department was to be maintained. It is of interest to note the broaden ing of the conception and the change of empha is placed on education by the convention of J841. In December, 1841, a school was chartered, named in honor of John Howard, the Engli h Reformer, who ha clone more than any other man to correct abuses in English prisons. The fo ll owi ng January, J842, the sch ool was opene I at Marion. The student body wa . campo eel of nine small boys. There was but one in structor, who enjoyed the title of president- amuel Sterling Sherman- a graduate of Middlebury College in Vermont, w h o h ad come to Alabama to occupy a position as tutorin structor in the University of Alabama. Before the end of the fir st session the enrollment had been increased to thirty-one. Additional faculty members were employed in the begin ning of the next session and a beginning of a library was made. By the end of the third se s ion the new school had $'W,OOO endowment , 1,400 volumes in the library, and more than $1i,OOO worth of apparatus. By 181i3, the enclowment fund had re~ch c1 $!l0,000 and a campaign was on to double that amount. By the next year enthusiasm was running high, and it seemed that t h e coll ege was to be placed up on a sec urely firm basis. A great catastrophe occurred, however, to hlie-ht the hopes of the fri nels of the young in st itution. A fire hrok out w hi ch swept away buildings, hooks, ;,ncl apparatus. Two of the students lost t h eir

Removal to Birmingham 1\ ph ys ica l cha nge m ore important than eith er of its fire s and m o re un settling than its war experi ence was the removal of the co ll ege fr o m Marion to Birmingham in 1887-8H. 'l'h bid s made lo the State Convention b y Birmingham land companies were handsome in the number o f acres offer ed and the amo unt of cas h pled ge d, and it wa the feeling of the co nvention and of most of the college faculty that th e change s hould b e made. U pon th e arrival in East Lake of the faculty a nd students for the Octobe r ope nin g in 1887, it was found that the g r at Birmingham boom had co ll apsed a nd that it was impossibl e to redee m all the pledge. of mon ey. Tn fact it was with t h e g-reate. t difficulty that $8,000 was rais d for the construction of two wooden temporary buildin gs, known to tradition later as "The Barn" and "The Mess Hall" until they gave place lo Renfroe Hall and Montague H al l in 1903 and 1906. respectively. For nearly ten yea rs the faculty carried t h coll ege finan ially almost without backin g . In J 889-DO the e nrol lm e nt of st udents reached the 170 mark and th e ses. io n followin g rose to 206, the la rgest number that h ad matriculated in Howard at that time. The present main bulding was co mpleted in 1891. Th e decade betw een J 89 0-1900 was o ne of st ru ggle and sacrifice on the part of the faculty to keep the in stitution go in g. Tn sp ite of th e heroic efforts the indebtedness of the college r eac hed an amount greater than ould haYe been r ea lized from the sale of the coll ege property and land s. Finally, in lR!HJ. t he State onvention in sess ion at Opelika decided to come to th e relief of the faculty.

He has en·ed as archon of the chapter for one term, was reelected for another semester, but because of the confli cting ed itorial job of the Oklah oma. Da.if·y, he resigned as archon. He is known by all on the campus who hail him as "Priest." He is regarded as one of the big leaders of the student body, a_ well as an ardent supporter of P i Kappa I hi .

ECEN TLY a jewelry concern has sent a representati ve south for the puq ose of selling to clubs and fraternitie . '.l.'he representative of the concern has a place r nlecl in a men' s clothing store in Atlanta, and recently one of ou r brothers had a conversation with him in which he sa id he had been getting a great deal of business from P i Kapps in F lor ida and Georgia. Now, the point I want lo bring out is this: Every time a Pi Kapp buys a ny j welry from any other co ncern than Burr-Patterso n he is la kin g mon ey away from the fr at rnity Every brother should know that we get a royally from Burr- Patterson on jewelry bought by us from them and that they a rc our fraternity jewelers.

the Journal was of some aid to the fraternity in thi way. After Harry Mixson, Charles K.

Harry ~fix on, who was then E. S. .\., tided it o1·er until the next com·ention. At this point, I rather lost touch with the fraternity and did not follow its fortunes very closely. 'J'he life membership tunt was what we should ha1·c thought of at fir t, a it is on this that the uccess of mo t fra ternity journal is based, I think.

Trowevc r, we ha\'C recently added to our li st by the pledging of J. B. Towill of Batesburg, S. C., and he wi ll L':! initiated in the near future. Drother Rudy Lane has ju t comp leted another successful basketball season and has now turned his attention to the baseball team. Brother Summerson made a great record for himself as a wrestler and was awarded a letter in this spo rt. Ire is now getting in trim to contin ue hi s work of last year with the track team. L rothcr McLeod an l P ledge Towill may be seen any afternoon now hard at work in the spring football practice which began a few day ago. Brother \Vilson was recently plcclgecl to T'hi A lpha Delta, legal fraternity. Brothers Summerson , McLeod and Stallings are our new members in Kappa Deta Phi, social fraternity on the campus. All in all , Rho seems to be holding up well under the stress of real old summ er weather, and we hope to carry on the work of the chapter to the greater glory of old P i Kappa T'hi. ~lb

'.!'he an nual g-ive n by A lpha-A!ph a chapter, came as a glorio us climax to o ne of the most success ful coll egia te years the chapter has enjoye l sin ce its in stallation. A nd while Pi Yapps are not g ive n to braging, we of A lpha-Alpha ca nn ot help being a littl e boastful over some of the recent activities of o ur chapter on the campus, on the athletic fie ld a nd in the clas room. The dance left other fraternities, rel uctantly ad mitting that it was t h e brightest spot in the social seaso n and o ne of the best dances ever g iven by a fraternity at Mercer. Therefore A lpha1\lpha ca nn ot s uppress the a lmost un co ntrollab le desire to sit back and bask in the glory o[ r eal ach ievement, a lthough at the sa me time comes the realization that getting ch esty over past achieYements does not insure future s uecess. Part of the su ccess of our "g-rand" dance, as people of Macon and the surroundin g sectiOJ1S o[ the countr y put it, is clue to variety of costumes worn by the g uests- the other is clue to the downr ig ht h ard work of brothers . The dance ca m e as the first charact er dress affair probably ever g iven in Macon, and the array of ga rm ents worn that night, co upled w ith the artistic decorations in gold and white, added much color to the occas ion.

The g rowth of the institution ha been unu sual and it is not peculiar that several nati onal s ha1·e con sider d this a fitting place for expa nsion. The lemocratic atmosphere ex1 trng among the . tuclents and also between the student s and fac ult y, tends towards a get-toge th er spirit. Se1·era l fraternities ha1·e conducted an ex per iment of providing board in the fraternity house but at pre ent only one maintains a dining hall. :\!th ough the possibility of se1·eral doing so 111 th e nea r future is in lica tecl. Si nce . \lph a-Epsilon was in sta ll ed. Sigma hi has entered t he uni,·er. ity, and charter granted to the following fraternitie s: Phi Delta Th eta, Delta Tau Delta, Sigma l)hi Eps il on.

Se,·eraJ of the e new comers on th e campus ha ,-e attracti 1·e homes and will soon e. tab! ish themseh·es, so th price of good 111ateria l is becoming better. From e1·ery indication th ere will be the everincreasing number of freshmen next yea r and Pi Kappa Phi sta nds as good a cha nce to benefit as any fraternity. Tt is a lso fortunat in I> ing ab le to ca ll on a lumni fro m it s old er si ter chapter at St tson.
