Members of the erne Council went to Evanston and investi-

gated the proposed location and were delighted with the possibilities. Upon removal · the central office will be in a new building, on the main street of the university city and just a few blocks from the campus of Northwestern University. While in Evanston, the council members visited the headquarters of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, where they were gra ciously received and entertained during their brief stay. Provision was made for closer contact with undergraduate chapters and thereafter each chapter will have the benefit of a visitation , at least once a year, of the executive secretary, a Supreme officer, or a district archon . The executive secretary wi ll visit each chapter at least one time during each biennium. Chapters were also regrouped into new dis tricts and provision was made for a detailed report form which must be submitted by each visitation official. In this connection, the name of the chapter inspector was changed to that of district archon, this being considered more appropriate and more in keeping with the spirit of the office. To strengthen the work of the committee on scholarship and to crystalize the sentiment of the council, as to the desire for earnest scholastic effort of all members of the fraternity, the following resolution was adopted: "That the Supreme Council is decidedly con cerned over the scholarship standing of each chapter in the fraternity and urges the executive secretary, district archons, and all other officers of the fraternity to co-operate to the extent of their ability with the scholarship committee in promoting a higher scholastic standing within the fraternity." A plan was also adopted whereby the district archon in every district having more than one chapter be required to recommend to the Supreme Council an alumnus to act as chapter advisor for each undergraduate chapter in the district.

At the official opening of Howard College's eighty-seventh year, September 12, Dr. John C. Dawson announced that Albert Lee Smith, Alpha-Eta, had presented $10,000 to the college as the beginning of an educational endowment fund through which needy and ambitious students may have the opportunity for a college education. The fund is given in honor of Dr. A. D. Smith, president of the board of trustees and financial backer of the new girls' dormitory which will be called the Mamie Melt Smith Hall in honor of Mrs. Smith, who, until her death, was a tireless worker for Howard.

Those who have labored with love in the past have brought it about ; the officers who have worked indefatigably and with vision to erase all mistakes, strengthen the foundation of the organization, open the avenues to progress; and George Sheetz, who has proven his worth in the admirable system of control and contact that he has evolved at the Central Office. Their work deserves the meed of highest praise and recognition. A high standard of achievement has been set that must be retained. Greater heights are to be expected and must be attained. There is in this issue of THE STAR AND LAMP an excellent indication of the manner in which the Supreme Council has taken hold of the problems confronting the fraternity. I gloried in being present at that epochal, historymaking three days' session of that body in September. There came to me at that time an envelopi n g vision of the purpose and possibilities of Central Office. The earnestness and zeal of those officers in behalf of Pi Kappa Phi was quite insptrtng. The fraternity is to be congratulated upon its Supreme Council and I am happy to be associated with them. I only hope that I can in a measure fulfill their desires re garding Central Office in relation to the future of Pi Kappa Phi. Count me as a servant to all of you, seveqlly and collectively, responsive in the matter of sug gestion for betterment, desirous of your constructive cnttctsm. One of my great desires is to bring forth to a greater degree national consciousness among the members of Pi Kappa Phi , and if you wi ll consider the problems of the fraternity as your problems and take active interest in assisting me to solve them, I will be more than delighted. The shoulder of every man Jack of you is needed at the wheel.

In fact , generally speaking, it is more dressed up than some of the former Vanities and a few of the former Winter Garden shows. An interesting thing done at the famous old restaurant La Tour d 'Argent, is when ordering a duck they display to you its number from a band on its leg, ours being No. 913 7 6. This practice dates back to 1890. This restaurant under the name was established in 1582. Naturally, it has been rather thoroughly commercialized, in fact, it is almost impossible to find one of the old popular restaurants, the majority of whose patrons are not Americans. We were fortunate in getting a new Hispano Suiza with a good chauffeur, making a tour of the battlefieldsCompiegne Forest, Rheims, etc., including Chemin'des Dames. What complete utter desolation still obtains in some places ! The restored country and villages are nothing short of mi raculous. One marvels that life of any kind could survive such warfare and it is a tribute to the energy and tenacity of France and her people. The almost complete restoration of the war -torn areas stands out as one of the remark able achievements of all time. In this connection it was noted in all the motoring we did over the entire country, how diminutive the new crop of soldiers is. They look small, scrawny and under nourished , compared to the ones I saw in 1917- 18 - 19. With a population of forty mill ions, it is a serious thing to kill off a million and a half of the best men and starve the growing generation. Carrying the idea farther back, say to the Napoleonic wars when the best of French manhood was alm ost entirely wiped out and considering that the nation has been engaged in important conflicts for some centuries, personally I marvel at its fortitude, courage, intellectual honesty and endurance. The average Frenchman is pitifully poor, and being an agricultural rather than a manufactur ing race, these poor people work exceedingly hard and have very little to show for it. We rarely beard war referred to . German banks and companies advertise in most of the trains and the two nations seem to find it to their mutual advantage to get along and do business together.

This was by daylight and perhaps that was why it looked so sordid and cheap. Of the people I saw entering the Casino, no less than 65 per cent were women and of these women I would assume that fully 80 per cent of them were well over :fifty-five . What an interesting sight it is around the roulette tables ! Every possible type of humanity and some that seem impossible, looking and acting as they do . We did not visit the baccarat rooms at Monte Carlo. There is one so -called " sport" right behind the Casino on a point built out into the Mediterranean , which is the shooting of live pigeons. A string is pulled and a live pigeon is released , at which, for a fee, a person has two shots. The pigeon is re leased facing the sea and of course, when it comes out of the trap it turns around and attempts to fly back to land. These poor wounded creatures are pitiful. some having a leg or a wing shot off, others with a shot through their body. A trained dog retrieves them. Some fall into the sea and others fall in the streets and gardens. Sometimes a thrifty Frenchman will be seen in a boat, picking up these " treasures" which have fallen into the water.

We were fortunate in taking some twenty reels of movies on our trip and the Customs Authorities at no time gave any concern to our camera or films .

In one part of the Casino at Cannes the lighter operas were given each evening but in the gam ing rooms in the same building not a sound was heard other than the normal ones. At Cannes, roulette is not played at the Casino but they have a game that is a first cousin, called La Boule. It is a much milder game and it is a very simple matter to pay a small fee and get admission . The baccarat room is entirely another matter. Here you must produce your passport and each purchase an admission card which is good for thirty days and as I recall , this costs about $5.00 each, which we ·thought a rather high tax to watch the other fellow gamble . The maximum and minimum stakes varied at the different tables. I remember one table at which there was much excitement, the minimum bet in one play being $100. The men and women at these gaming tables were generally speaking, very nice -looking people. Cannes has come to be one of the most fashion able winter resorts - on the Riviera. It is very popular with the English . Being very fond of motoring and having a strong desire to see the old Roman part of France, we expressed most of our baggage to the Plaza Athenee in Paris and in the Voisin, with our typical French chaffeur, proceeded down that beautiful and interesting drive just skirting the Mediterranean , turning away from the Mediterranean at St. Raphael, on through Frejus and Aix -en-Provence, through the real heart of charming old Provence.

It spans ' h passes at that pmnt . t\vo tlver • Wh 1c between Olan Very high cliffs. It was built by the Ro Pur/ some 2,500 years ago to conduct fresh, forty Wa~er from the mountains to Nimes, some line ~lies away. Instead of the usual single top ~lth arches, there are three lines, one on &oes ~h:h~ ~ther. each with arches. The story a se . t lt 1s the only example one can :find of ttous · tects m1stake made by the Roman archiand engineers and here is the reason for it.

They built the :first tier, thinking this would be tall enough to carry the water over the high est peak between that point and Nimes and found they were mistaken; they built a second tier and :finding this still inadequate, put on the third and :final tier. This carried the water itself and this aqueduct in its completed form is one of the finest monuments in the world to the engineering skill and architectural ability of that particular period. That part of the aqueduct which carries the water itself, was put together with a kind of cement and is still holding today. The top is covered over with huge :flat stones, still remaining, with an opening about every thirty feet, so that the water could purify itself in the air. As one walks through the aqueduct, it is interesting to note that over the hundreds of years in which it was actually used, the water has left incrustations and lime deposits on the original stone, which deposits are about two feet thick on each side and therefore, cut down the carrying capacity of the aqueduct by very nearly one-half. At places it is a little difficult to determine where the stone ends and the incrustations begin. Local stories tell you of how a church and several houses were at different times built out of stones shaped from these incrustations. With great reluctance we left this beautiful spot and motored on to Nimes for lunch . Here is the famous Maison Caree, after which the Madeleine at Paris is modeled, and which is in a remarkable state of preservation, as is the huge arena; the famous Roman baths into which came the waters from the aqueduct about which we have just been speaking. From springs and wells, the baths are still supplied with abundant water and the old Roman marble steps are still there. The Romans bad a system of heating the water and hot or cold baths were supplied. In the grove immediately adjoining and surrounding the baths is the remains of an old Temple of Diana which was later said to be used by the Cl:Jristians for a church and we see here an absolutely perfect example ·of the old pagan custom of bathing themselves and stepping out into the grove to worship at the Shrine of Venus or Diana . A long ride then (wh ere we :first encountered "The Mis-

THE STAR AND LAMP OF PI KAPPA PHI tral" ), to the most perfect example of a mediae~ val walled town in existence, Carassonne, situated at the foot of the Pyrenees. It has been an important and famous battleground for some three thousand years. The old city en tirely within the walls is up on a hill and in recent years just inside the walls, there has been' built in proper architectural design and style, a modern hotel with excellent accommodations and good food and wines of the country. Mutilated French soldiers serve as guides and an additional charge is made for taking moving pic~ tures. As fascinating a spot as one can find and well worth a trip to southern France for this alone . Elaborate defenses, huge rooms, inner and outer defenses, bake ovens and cook~ ing facilities in a number of the rooms formerly housing guards. A cathedral though small, has many sections that are ancient, each section with a different kind of architecture or columns. The stained glass windows are as beautiful as any we saw even at Chartres. Recently a workman while digging a foundation almost in the center of the city, came upon some mosaic work which developed into almost an entire floor of beauti ful, preserved Roman mosaic. The cold fierce " Mistral" chilled our desire to visit Biarri tz, so back to Paris.


Early one morning we left Paris and mot~r~ through Versailles on to Chartres. The ~tal~h glass windows of the Cathedral are unbeheva .. beautiful. We then went down into the Lo'r; Valley with its charming, fascinating countr路' and atmosphere all its own.

Chapter I Came the dawn of a new day. In the glowing sunrise, two Pi Kapp pledges dropped from the slow moving freight to the wooden platform of the Clarksfork station. Several minutes later they assembled their huge packs, picked up their fowling pieces, and set forth up Lightning Creek to bring a bear skin back to the Alpha-Delta chapter house. Why did they want to bring a bear skin back to the house, is the inquiry of the critic. The answer is simple-a bear skin would be the one thing that they could not clean on Saturday mornings.



Round III

(Tunney's Version) Mr. Bruin confident/ 01 says he will win in 3fl round. The pledges d also equally confident a~1 make the statement to t ··,~~ Alpha-Deltan that k shall win by a wa I· away."

FTER four years of valient service as executive secretary of the fraternity, Brother George E. Sheetz has resigned that position and has turn ed over the administration of the fraternity to Brother Howard D. L eake , who was elected this summer by tbe Supreme Council. It was with regret that the Supreme Council accepted Brother Sbeetz' resignation . He has performed a duty to Pi Kappa Phi that can not be overestimated . His was the task of blazing a trail. of mapping out a business-like administration of the fraternity's affairs. He was the first full time officer of the order and tbere was no precedent to guide him . He made his own precedents and how well he did the job only the passing of the years will tell. But it is now known that he has placed the fra ternity on a firm foundation in its business ad ministration and has brought efficiency out of chaos. It is the wish of the entire fraternity tbat success will attend Brother Sheetz in his future endeavors. That Brotber Sheetz has a worthy successor in Brother Leake is ful ly rea li zed by the fra ternity. He is a man well qualified for the task before him and it is confidently believed that he will " carry on" with credit to himself and honor to the fraternity . He and Brotber Blalock .should make an admirable team , both working in harmony for the further advance ment of Pi Kappa Phi . Surely our affairs are in capab le hands.

in fancy braids, a small cap of the same colors as the coat and a ribbon bearing the colors of the order. This ribbon is worn as a band from the right shoulder to the left side and up the back to the shoulder again . This full costume is worn only by the three officers of the Verbindung and is seen in public only occasionally. I have seen it only two or three times. One of these was at the very elaborate and dignified ceremonies accompanying the installation of a new presid ent of the uni versity. The cap and ribbon are always worn by those mem bers who are not officers and are the more usual costume for even the latter. The Verbindungs have no secret rituals . Neither do they use the Greek letter system, but gtve themselves names of old Ger man tribes such, for example, as "Normania, Germania, Beorussia (Latin for Prussia) ." However th e fraternity and the V erbindung are agreed that it is wise to condition m embership upon a unanimous favorable vote. Yet it is interesting to note that a student does not have to wait for an unsolicited bid from a Verbindung. It is considered good form for him to petition membership in his own behalf. Like the fraternity, each Verbindung has its house. Some of those which I have seen in Marburg and in Heidelberg are very beautiful. In most cases only two or three students live in the house. Naturally the house is the center of social activities for members of the Verbindungs and their friends. There are three official meetings there each week. The first of these is the business meeting. The second is generally known as " wissenschaftlicher Abend ." On this evening there .is a discussion of some subject

which is worthy of serious consideration. Each member of the Verbindung must take his rur~ I in leading one of these discussions. I have ~a the somewhat unusual privilege of attendtng one of these meetings. I was most favorablY impressed with the serious and scholarly fashi~~ in which it was conducted. As to the tht; evening, usually Saturday, you can pro~a~ ~ guess its nature following the simple retn 111 ~ that we are considering student life in Gerrnanl ·

Chairman Scholarship Committee

Pi Kappa Phi Scholars for 19 2 8

Phi B eta Kappa

HE chairman of the Scholarship Committee takes the greatest pleasure in an nouncing the winners of the Pi Kappa Phi scholarship trophies for the year 1927- 1928. The first awards of the scholarship pendants were made last year on Founders' Day to Broth ers Thomas H . Grafton, Beta , and William C. Pritchard , Omega , and on Founders' Day this year awards of these trophies representing the highest honor Pi Kappa Phi pays to Brothers outstanding in scholarship, will be made to the following: Arthur Wallace Crafton , Beta ; Joseph R . Bobbitt, Jr., Kappa ; Herman Gale Riggs, Omega ; James Theodore Jackson, Alpha -Eta; John Howard Weinberger, Jr., Alpha -Nu, and Russell Conwell Newhouse, Alpha -Nu. These brothers are to be congratulated on the excellent scholastic records they have made and Pi Kappa Phi is indeed glad to add their names to that select list of brothers who have brought honor to Pi Kappa Phi by their excellent scholarship.

Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest collegtate n society in the United States, having be~ found ed at the College of William and Williamsburg, Virginia , on December 5. 1 I en I t functioned as a secret society until 1831 00 it became a purely honor society initiating 15 honor m en and other distinguished stude~ J . no• in the upper classes. Phi Beta Kappa IS ·rs . . d aws I genera l college honor soctety as 1t r d 11 r m emb ership only from that part of the sttl cee body taking courses leading to the A. B_. deg:)\' or its equivalent. At present it has constdera ~1 1 more than one hundred chapters an d 1't 5 tO Jrs membership numbers more than 60 ,000. b tP membership includ es many of the ~pe past and present in American history s!!lce time of its founding. itll Pi Kappa Phi has at present contacts ~er· 1 Phi Beta Kappa in six teen colleges and 11 ~ v ti· 1 si ties.

Alumni Actiuities of Omega The following paragraph gives briefly the scholarship activities of some of Omega's alumni and doubtless similar paragraphs can be written \.Oncerning the scholarship activities of the alumni of other chapters of Pi Kappa Phi. John Foster Eberts and Russell George Tilton received professional degrees at the June, 1927, com mencement. Brother Eberts received the M . E. degree and Brother Tilton the E. E . degree. Lawrence Bridge is now an instructor in me chanical engineering at the University of Pittsburgh , and George Spencer has resigneq his position at the University of Maine to accept an instructorship in civil engineering at the University of Illinois. William R. Amick has accepted a position in the Agricultural Extension department at Purdue. Robert Phillips, who is Associate Professor of history at Purdu e, is away this year completing his work for the Ph. D. degree in the University of Michigan. Herbert 0 . Meyer is doing graduate work in dairy husbandry at the University of Illinois this year. Byron E. Pontius has just been promoted to Associate Professor of animal hus bandry at Purdue and also elected to active membership in Sigma Xi. Let us hear of the scholarship activities of alumni of other chapters.

Another Eta Kappa Nu The name of George M . Dill, initiated into Phi chapter, but since 1924 affiliated with P si chapter should be added to the Jist of Pi Kappa Phi's who are also members of Eta Kappa Nu . Brother Maurice B . White , Psi '26, who is con nected with the State Highway Commission of North Carolina at Charlotte, kindly supplied the committee with this information.

A National Pi Kappa Phi Library With the rapid development of Pi Kappa Phi as a great national fraternity and the rapidly increasing number of its alumni who are attain ing prominent places in public life, it is time that some steps be taken looking forward to the development of a national Pi Kappa Phi library. This library should include one or two copies of all books, scientific and literary

THE STAR AND LAMP oF Pr KAPPA PHI publications, and all other forms of publications of which members of Pi Kappa Phi are the authors. In some fu ture time undoubtedly Pi Kappa Phi wi ll have a beautiful national hea d quarters home and this library would then be p laced there as a monument to the scientific and li terary achievements of the fraternity. In the meant ime the library may be collected and preserved through the offices of the Scholarship Committee. With the regular acknowledgement of the receipt of such publications and an annual review of the scholarly achievements of our alumni through the co lumns of THE STAR AND LAMP, a renewed interest and pride in our fraternity wou ld be developed in many of our alumni who have lost immediate co ntact with their own chapters. The ch airman of the Scholarship Committee gladl y offers his services in the development and care of such a library until more permanent arrangement can be made.

his pleasant and charming d isposition won biJII ho3ts of true friends, and gave to him the ni~k­ name of "Rosie," which h e carried through hfe.

He was elected treas· urer of Omicron chapter and his untiring efforts and conscientious work were one of the greates; factors in the completion of Omicron 's beautifU home. After leaving the University of Al~­ bama , Brother Skipper was connected in bust· 3 ness with his father, Mr. M . P . Skipper.


Roy Bradshaw Skipper ByJ.B. STAPLETON,O "To make the LVorld brigh ter for those we hnou:; T o give our best selves for th ose we love; T o live in the hearts of those we leave: Is not to die. "

June 13, 1928 , Brother Roy Bradshaw Skipper met his death in an au tomobile accident. Knowing him as many of us did in life. knowing the disinclination that always possessed him to be accla imed with fulsome speech of vain glorious praise, any words of eulogy addressed to his memory. other than in simple justice to his life's achievements, would fai l to be in keep ing with the spirit of his earthl y pilgrimage or of the motives that actuated his co nduct among his fellows. Brother Skipper was born Apri l 17, 1904, in Ozark, Alabama, and was 24 years of age when he answered the summons of the Supreme Archon of the Universe . He was graduated from the Ozark High School in 19 22. being the presid en t of his class . The following year he entered 'Emory University, and th ere became a member of our fraternity. He was very active in fraternity and scholastic affa irs. and was on the business staff of The Toreador, the Emory annu al. He stayed at Emory two years, w here

Twenty-three Pledges at Oklahoma


The beginning of June of this year saw one of the most successful years of Alpha-Beta chapter drawing to a close . As the time came for the boys to leave they were not nea rly so homesick as they b ad imagined, and some refused to leave and remained for summer scbool. Tbese were Brothers Brannan, Ogden , Caraway, Ad dison and Pledge Parsons. Everyo ne wbo remained for summer school bad the time of bis life as all wbo were there can testify. Tbings bega n to get dull along in tbe middle of the summer so the boys de cid ed tbat tbere was nothing like a dance to pep things up. With tbe b elp of the brothers living in New Orlea ns, tbe first summer school fra ternity dance on the Tulane campus was given. Tbe dance was a huge success, the music being furnished· by an alumnus, Brother Wimberly and his orchestra. Brother Harding was chosen to lead the chapter as Archon for this year and Brother Jones will manage the house. The new year promises to see Alpha-Beta active in every field. Brother Jones will again play forward on the Green Wave basketball team. This will be his third yea r on the varsity and h e has quite a reputation for his brilliant playing . Brothers McCain and Freund will continue as shining li ghts in the glee club. Plans have been made for refinishing the house and adding another room to it. The work will be completed in time for rushing seaso n, and twenty men are expected to start the year off. Since rushing season has been restricted to one week at Tulane, we have a very crowded program which includes three dances. Everyone is glad to be back in school but there are some faces missing who are now num bered among the alumni. Brothers Riggs, Phillips and Leeper, who have finished in medicine, are all interning, Brother Riggs at his home in Shreveport, and Brothers Leeper and Phillips in New Orleans. Brother Ayo graduated in Pharmacy and returned to his home in Morgan City. Brotber Robinson graduated in law and is in New Orleans.



The call of the University has been heard again and the students are flocking in to Norrnall from all over the State.

When Pi Kappa Phi starts picking men for a football team, with an objective to defeat every team in America, the pickers, whoever they may be, can look to Alpha-Iota at Auburn, for some real material. Two of the mainstays in Auburn's line are Pi Kapps and another is soon to be initiated.

Last year when the chapter offered a jewelled pin to the freshman having the highest average at the end of the semester, Teddy was the man who got it. How is that for a combination: an athlete and a scholar? A dozen freshmen are now proudly wearing the Pi Kapp pledge button at A. P. I.. AlphaIota having enjoyed the most successful rushing season in its history. We present the pledges: " Red" Burgess, who hails from Florida. " Red" is going out for baseball as well as for the Glee Club and the Auburn Players. Other aspirants to honors in the Glee Club are Elijah Mathews, of Grove Hill; Jimmy Robbins, a Selma product; and Howard Upchurch, who has far -away hopes of being known as " the accompanist." "Bubbee" Faulk, of Troy, who is taking "elec," and Curtis Cannon. the pride of Lockhart, are reporting regularly on the field, :fighting for berths on the frosh eleven. Jack Cumbee, a brother of A. Z. Cumbee of Eta chapter at Emory, and A . N. Davis, of Wetumpha, are the civil engineers among the pledges. Then there is Jimmie Roberts, of Oxford, who has a secret desire to relax behind a shiny desk and tell Johnnie to "tell him I'm out." Jimmie is taking general business . Peter Crump is "a true Crump." Peter, like the brothers who preceded him, is taking "elec." The " Rock" has already pledged Keys. We are proud to welcome Earl McGillvray, a pledge of Alpha -Eta chapter at Howard, into the realms of Alpha -Iota . At the Pledge Club election, MacBarnes, of Orlando, Fla .. was elected president. "Lige" Mathews, vice-president, and Peter Crump, secretary. All the neophytes of Alpha -Iota are competing for the jeweled pin given for highest scholastic standing. ~

Back Again at Ohio State ./

Ohio State opened her doors for the autumn quarter October 1. and the Pi Kapps were not long in falling back into the old school spirit

once again.
