rendered short, impromptu speeches. Prominent among the chapter's guests on this occasion were: Thomas Byrne, Alpha Pi; Edward Beason, Alpha Eta; J. P. Burchfield, Walter Hovater, and Francis Fletcher, Omicron. Clyde Pearson of Montgomery furnished us with attractive place cards, and Mother Fitzpatrick most capably attended to the food. To her also all credit must be given for the elaborately decorated tables. After the banquet all the brothers gathered around the fire for a "bull session." Three members of Pi Kappa Phi have recently received recognition as scholars on the university campus. Wood Rowe Purcell was elected to Tau Beta Pi in his junior year; Brothers William C. Davis and Henry H . Mize have been initiated into Phi Beta Kappa. It is quite unusual for any social fraternity to be represented in these organizations with this many men. Theodore Jackson, president of the student body, went to Toledo, Ohio, during the holidays. He attended the National Student Federation of America and was selected to preside over the discussions on the honor system. Brother Jackson is recognized over the nation as an outstanding authority on this phase. Omicron Chapter had the misfortune to have its house badly burned during the holidays, but reconstruction has already been begun. The damage was fully covered by insurance.
