EDITOR § COMMENT 9

Righto, Mississippi ANTI-FRATERNITY regulations applying . to state educationa l institutions in M iss;~sippi, have been repealed in a law passed by f le Mississippi legislature. It is expected that raternit' . Ies Will return next fall to th e campu ses Of . 0 f M'ISSISS!ppl . . . ancI t I1e 'Jif'IS · . the D,,·IVerSity ISS!pp'1 A • & M. College. tl With the lifting of the a nti-fraternity ban in lat State, South Carolina alone remain s as a bl ack . 1'h pot on the fratern ity map of Amenca. C e ~ttempt two year ago to repeal the South Sarohn a law failed by just eight votes in the I!enate after the bill had been passed by the lower 0 i ~ e. If the law denying stud ents at State llslJtut'Ion s t I1e advantages and privileg s enJoyec . I 1 ~~ their fellows at other in stitutions within the in a.te, the fraternity men of outh arolina must tl dl(~ate to their representative their feeling on le C}U es t'Ion . Sentiment fo r th e rep a l of the 1aw ret p · s on the fraternity men of the State. S 1 Rappa Phi is particularly interested in the . . . . p 1 outh Ca 1. ro ma SituatiOn for It was tn t 11e a11 lett 0 t t . . C I( a e, m quamt old harl eston, t11at p·1 a~pa Ph i made its first faltering teps as a 11 ational fraternity. Too th e regtil ation has in te ' t.J n·ed . that grand old chapter of Sigma at the Pi~ersity of South Carolina, which has given appa P hi some of its strongest leaders.

l\ fay the day be quick in comi ng when South Carolina, too, wil.l follow fississippi and remove the last remaining stain on the f raternity system .

Jazzing Up Education ROFESSOR \iVILLT t\M J. NEWLIN, of Amherst, viewing the tendency of modern days, giv s ex pre ion to this sentiment, "\ \ ' e mu st jazz up education with a lipst ick and rouge." The difficulty with the times i that o much jazz has sound ed in the ears of youth that it is seldom the beautiful harmonies of the verities of life are audible. There has been too much of the freedom of youth, who has stormed the fortress of education and demanded in positive tones "Gimme, gimme." This a ll giving and no re~ turning is bad practice, especially is it bad for those who receive, and give nothing in return. Youth shou ld be taught to see that the thing of the old, often scorned and laughed at, are sacred and worthy of consideration of men big a nd strong. Youth should be taught respect for the dignity and worth of the trad ition and hi story of the past, which offer direction into the paths of fuller living.

New Chapter Homes

I

N thi s issue reference is made to th e three chapters, whi ch by determinati on and pluck, have acquired homes. Th ere is th e new house at O mi cron, pi cture of whi ch appears on another page, and there a re th e news stori es regarding the purchase of a house by th e broth ers of E psil on and P i. As we have prev iously remarked the acquiring of realty on th e part of our chapters is ample indi cati on of th e virility and g row ing power of our organi zation. This hou se purchas ing is stea di ly g rowing among our chapters and we hope to soon see the day when every chapter in the F raternity wi.l l be li ving beneath its own r oof. Th ose broth ers, who have longed to see their chapter buy "a place," should take courage from these two incid ents. T ackl e th e job with a determin ati on and see it through, stay with th e problem unti l it is settled and th ere should be no stopping. Th ose chapters whi ch have been abl e to purchase property are to be cong ratulated. These have been made with out aid from the Supreme Coun cil but the day is not far di stant wh en th e F raternity should cr eate an endow ment fund whi ch will provid e assistance to worthy chapters seeking their own homes. O ur progress in many ways has been remarkabl e and surely thi s is the new step in our developm ent.

Endowment Growing

D

RI NG the few years since th e adoption of the plan to invest a ll receipts for S·r.\R ANn LAM P subsc ripti ons in a perman ent fund whi ch in tim e wi ll bear suffi cient interest to pay for th e printing of th e magazin e, that fund has

steadil y grown. T oday it totals $ 15,000. ']'hiS issue is notabl e, therefore, in that it is th e first one whi ch the in te rest on our STAR AND L., ~il' in vestments would pay for. Wh en the fund has g row n suffi ciently to care for the magazine expense, a part of th ese receipts might be di verted to anoth er endowment fund to .l end aiel to house fundin g corpor ati ons or other pl ans approved by the Supreme Coun cil or board in control of the f und . But it is still necessary to build T HE S·rAR AND L AMP fund to almost fou r times its present total to provide for fo ur issues a year. A p racti cal and vital point here is that there ar e between eight and nine hundred alumni wh o ar e not subscribers, whose subscripti ons would boost the fund between $8,000 and $9,000. s our plans mature, we expect to ma ke th e m agaz in e more and more interesting and serviceabl e to the F raternity. It is the Ed itor 's desire, and that of all of us, that 'l'n F. S'l'AR AN D LAMP become indi spensabl e to th e alumnus as well as the undegra duate. Yotl who read thi s can help also by interesting these older alumni and securing their checks for $10 for life subscripti ons. As soon as th e magazine is on an entirely independent bas is, th e F rater· nity can take rapid strides and accompli sh bigger things for its membership.

Our New Directory

T

HE new directory, containing a compl ete lisl of members of the fraternity, is ready for di stribution. A fter m onths of painsta king eff ort on th e pa rt of Broth er George E. Sheetz, execu· ti ve secr etary, th e book has come from th e press. In the past, simil ar books have been issued but we venture to say that nothing as comprehensive as th e new eli rectory has ever before been a ttempt· eel by P i Kappa P hi. This is an enterprise that should merit the full support of th e fraternity. Th ere are doubtless some errors in the li sting and it becomes th e dutY of every brother to correct these errors by com· muni cating with th e central offi ce. The directory, w hich contain s m or e th a n 300 pages and i of conveni ent pocket size, should ]~c 1n the possess ion of every P i Kapp. Its pri ce 15 reasonable and Broth er S heetz has made a bar· gain offer of a free book to th e broth er sending· in an ord er for at least ten copi es at one time.

That Large Badge Again (From General Bulletin No. 12) The poll of the chapters taken on the question of authorizing the use of the large oversize badge has resulted in a vote of decided disap proval by a majority of the chapters. There will he no change in our regulations on this point, therefore, and it mu . t be plainly under tood that the large "police" style of badge is not officia l in l'i Kappa Phi. We feel sure also that it can immediately be assumed that anyone wearing such a badge did not secure it from Burr, Patterson & Company, our official jewelers, and that he either did not know of or did not regard our contract with them. If each chapter wi ll adopt a firm attitude on this point. such purcha es. f:om "pirating" jewelers will soon drop lo a mmtmum. These big badges have probably seemed. like a lot of other "bootleg" articles, the more desirable becau e prohibited. Now the choice ha been made by the undergraduate chapters themelves, and the members must observe the decision, since it is of their own making.

W

LTHOUGH it has not been heard fr~ for several months Iota chapter has been far from dormant. For one t hin g Iota came through the mid term exams w ith flying colors, not a man dropping by the wayside. ln fact, we raised our scho lastic standing from near the bottom to aro un d t he half way mark We placed three men on the honor roll in the persons of Marv in McGraw, Buster Reeves, and Est ill Ezell, each standing at the h ead of his respective section. F urth ermore, Iota has not been idl e in interfraternity athl etics. In t h e annu al crosscou ntry race, w hi ch ope ns the track seaso n at Tech, Iota fini shed a strong second for possession of the si lver loving cup. We already have two legs on this cup a nd hope to ga in per manent possess ion of it at the race next spring by w innin g it the t hird time. We didn't fare so well in the basketball tournament between the frate rniti es, having been elimin ated in t h e first game. At present we are practicing for inter-fraternity basebal l. We have good material, espec ially a long needed p itch er in Brother D. 0. Martin . · lt is well to say h ere t hat Iota initiated into Pi Kappa P hi in February nine pledges: " ) ul iu s" ae sar, Bill Sch all , Eel Powe ll , Mat hi s l ~ze ll , Donovan Geo rge, Harlan Lloyd, Lamar Hrazwell, D. 0.

Lambda's Progress By E. D. CnrM

LTHOUGH "Progress of Lambda" was the theme of our last discu sion in T IJI·: ST.\R ~\ ' D L.\~IP, we feel sure that our readers will bear with us this time on the same subject, because our strides forward ha\'e been so noticeable that we feel that you will not tire of reading good news. In the pa t few weeks Brothers John Holder, Metz Holder and Robert Gracey were initiated into the national honorary commercial fratermty, Delta Sigma Pi, which is quite a eli tinction at the University of Georgia. Brother Wm. E. Talley was pledged to Alpha Kappa Jlsi. . \t the last meeting of the Economics ociety. Brothers S. ~1 . 1\Ierritt and ] f. E. Smith were elected to the offices of vice-president and secretary and treasurer. Brother Jack Gray was elected pres ident of the International Relations club. Brother George S. Johnson was elected vicepre ident of Georgia Athletic association. Jlrother E. JJ. Crim was elected pres ident of the first year Law class. Brother A. G. Varnedoe was made a istant editor of The . 1griwlturist, a publication of wide scope and large circulation. Next year the editors hip will probably go to Brother Varnecloe, and thi s is the biggest honor on Ag. Hill. Out of the fifteen fraternities here every year about fifteen men arc taken into the "Biftad" club, and this year we had two men to make this honor. They were Brother R H. Gracey and H. E. Smith, Brothers Johnson and Sh 1·lock being the older members from our chapter. ur lat st pledges to Delta Sigma Pi are: H. E. Smith, S. l\1. Merritt and Jas. Williams. Recently six of our freshmen were taken in the Fre hman club, which sponsor one of the b e t dances given at the university.

Twelve men have been pledged, most recently Ed Turner from Rocky Mou nt, a freshman football star. Eight of these twelve have been initi ated, bringing th e enrollment to twenty-two ac ti ves and four p ledges. M u loses four men thi s sp ring by g raduation. Hrother G. B.

Brother M. I. P ickens is compl eting hi s postg raduate work thi s spring a nd will r eceive an M.A. degree. Other members are working for sti ll more honors to uphold M u's prestige on the campus.

HINGS are humming at Nu. M id -se me~­ ter exams are over and thoughts are aga 111 turned to the more sublime thin gs of sp ring. N u chapter has initi ated four men who have shown the very keenest interest in the fraternitY and school affairs. They are: A lton O rendorff, Byrum Johnson. Sawyer Abbott. and Carl eton 1--:T.utchin s. Two pledges have been added to our li st: · V ictor Schmidt, of Summ erf ield , Kan s. , wh 0 plays baseball besides bein g a F r osh pre-la'" student. Lewis Stockwell , of Morri ll , Nebr., who is a track star of note, plays a trumpet and is a F reshm an "Bizad." In school activities we have O r endorff and Schmidt as Pers hing Rifles, Abbott, a Gamrna Lambda, and J ohn son, a pledge of Sinfonia. Stockwell is making good use of hi s track pos· sibilities. E r win Domeier and Melvin Ke rn are officers of Delta Sigma P i and Drother Kern is in charge of the gala day for the "Bizad" college. I-:T arold Zinnecker is a captain in the army, and Ray Hall first li eutenant. Maaske and Lewis will accompany th e Glee club on its annual tour.

In bas ketball we were successful in taking a hard foug ht battle of two extra periods frol11 the Sigma N u cagers. We were stumped and eliminated in the second round by th e Kappa Sigs, one of the contenders for the championship.
