well with the freshman wrestling squad, and it is hoped that they will win regular berths on the freshman team. All of the brothers of Alpha Mu are working hard to make 1932 the best year yet. District Archon Berry in his recent visit, gave us many helpful suggestions which are being carried out to our best ability, and it is hoped that they will meet with the greatest success. We were glad to have Brother Berry and Brother Neuls with us for the week-end and it was with much regret that Alpha Mu saw them leave after such a short and pleasant visit. Founders' Day was celebrated at the Alpha Mu Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi with much feasting and many speeches. Caterer Stoudt prepared a most excellent menu for the occasion, which was made all the more appetizing by the addition of fresh, tender, venison. Brother Zook, the Daniel Boone of this chapter, was alone responsibile for the last-mentioned article as it was he who gave up two days of his school work in order to supply such meat as would benefit a Pi Kapp banquet. The dinner was topped off with speeches by every active in the house. The two principal messages were delivered by the chapter archon, H. M. Rodgers, and the historian, G. A. Colton, who described the general history, growth, and traditions of Pi Kappa Phi. A fitting ending to such a pleasant evening was supplied by the Atlanta Alumni Chapter through the aid of the radio. At twelve o'clock sharp every man in the chapter was eagerly awaiting the promised entertainment. I will not go into detail in telling how the brothers of Alpha Mu enjoyed the program. It is sufficient to say that such an entertainment would be greatly welcomed at more frequent intervals.
Tau Beta Pi Takes Member of Alpha Nu By ROBERT THOMPSON Pledges: Alfred Newhouse, Osterander, Ohio; Ralph Printz, Ridgeway, Ohio; Gilbert Miller, Masillion, Ohio; Paul Albrecht, Masillion, Ohio. Initiates: George Koepf, Buffalo, N.Y.; George Southard, Chatham, N.Y. ; William Gall, Huron, Ohio. Edgar Routzong, our treasurer, was selected recently by Tau Beta Pi, engineer honorary fraternity. Routzong is a senior in industrial engineering. Alpha Nu has been holding up high scholastic work ever since its beginning, always ranking among the leaders of social fraternities on the campus; and, based on recent grades, we have high hopes of keeping up the good work. Men in campus activities are: Mert Alvord, Dick Kiinsler and Owen Howard, baseball; Ken Haley
and George Southard, polo; Edgar Routzong, senior polo manager; George Koepf and Corwin Hablitzel, band; and Dave Meyer, track. Due to the depression we, as every other fraternity on the campus, have met with quite a bit of difficult)' in the matter of pledging. We initiate three times a year and our last irritation left us with but four pledges, all of whom we will initiate at the end of January. We have quite a problem before us. But upon very good advice of Executive Secretary Leake, we are going to proceed in a very systematic manner and if necessary get in touch with every non-fraternity man on the campus. We intend to install a system that will be used in the future. We have had our usual number of social functions, dances, smokers and reunions. At the present time we are looking forward to our annual winter formal, to be held the thirteenth of February. Three of the brothers were married during the last year- Brothers Wells, Strowe, and Haley. Wells and Haley are continuing their school work, while Strowe is out at the present. He hopes to return in the future to complete his education. We are deeply indebted to Brother Leake for his timely visit to the chapter. We were rather in a mud路 dle over some very difficult problems that had pre路 sented themselves, dealing on suspension and our in路 ability to obtain pledges. Brother Leake gave us some very sound advice and solved our problems. We would like to thank Brother Leake and hope he will be able to visit us again in the near future.
