JOHN ~RO~'NLEE ~as had a very enviable record ever smce h1s entry mto Duke as a freshman. His first honor was his election to the presidency of the freshman class. In his freshman year he played regular footb ll on the freshman team, and in the winter he made a place for himself on the boxing team. In the spring, although impaired by water on the knee due to football injuries, he ran on the track team and scored many points. In his sophomore year he made his letter in football but did not go out for boxing. In the spring he became the outstanding star of the track team, winning fifteen points in every meet just as regularly as clock work. H e was especially good in the low hurdles, although he ran the hundred and two-twenty nearly as well. H e was entered in the Southern Conference meet in Birmingham with two other Duke men as Duke's only entries. One of the other two ~as Fulmer, a Pi Kapp. H e not only won first place In the two-twenty low hurdles but he established a ne': conference record of twenty-four seconds flat.

Florida •s District Archon


0. Forrest McGill, P

YOU happen to make Orlando while in Florida, IFthere is a team of Pi Kapps that will be glad to see you; and before you leave them, if you have not been sold the climate and scenery through observation, they will sell you the state on an economic basis. Boosters they, energetic salesmen-that firm of RexMcGill Investment Company. It is hard to speak of one without pulling into the discussion the other. Both are members of Rho Chapter, Washington and Lee University ; they are partne~; and to put the cap on the situation, they married sisters. 0. F. ("Mac") McGill was a very active man in the chapter at Washington and Lee University, serving several terms as archon and periods in other offices. This interest in the fraternity continues with him and led him to accept the district office when it was offered. While the press of personal business affairs deprives him of the opportunity of spending as much time with the chapters as he would wish, the welfare of the two chapters under his jurisdiction is something of much concern to him. He is vice-president of the local realty board and takes an active interest in the work of the Rotary Club. This is evidence of continued leadership in business affairs now as it was campus activities in his university days. He was president of his freshman class, captain of the wrestling team, and an officer in a ribbon social club. In addition to these activities, he was able to complete a four-year course in three years and hold down a responsible position in a local bank. He is pulling for a Florida convention of the fraternity.
