The Officials• Page President's Founders' Day Message



Thirty years ago Pi Kappa Phi was founded, "0 with the growing years each Founders' Day as~I}1JI: a new significance. More and more apparent lS ~ wisdom of the early planning of our Founders, an . . clear becomes the idealism of their friendship. Today, Pi Kapps .ever'/( where may view the growth of our fraternity under the inspiration °f 0 these men. Instead of one chapter, now there are two score; instead the small founding group, six thousand loyal brothers stand. A mar· vellous achievement for so short a space of time! the Albe1·t W. Meisel On the anniversary of our founding, Jet each of us remember . 11 eternal truths, "To Jive, one must grow," and the corrollary, "Stagnatt\ or decline mean ultimate death." The Founders did not complete th~tl . task, nor have we, who have followed after. Each brother, in a sp~ar sense, who has contnbuted since that time new thought and service to our cause, makes of himself a foun e ch following in their steps. Brothers who have thus aided the welfare of our brotherhood should be especially in our minds on su occasions as Founders' Day, when all Pi Kapps review the past and measure our advance. Such were the men, who were given citations at the last Supreme Chapter meeting. All honor to them! es December tenth is the birthday of the Fraternity. It is a particularly appropriate time for undergraduat r 0 and alumni to get together arou nd the festal board, or elsewhere, and celebrate the happy event as chapter local community groups. .· Tradition decrees, as part of such an occasion, that presents are in order. To those, who join in such festt"~; 11 ties, I urge this old time custom be observed. Demanding the best for Pi Kappa Phi, I ask for spiritual, material, gifts. Let each of you give of yourselves, your time, and service. No man can give better gifts than these. ar, And when another year has rolled around and once again in retrospect we view the progress ~f .the yet)Je each donor of spiritual gifts will have the joy of having shared in the growth, and all Pi Kapps reJOICe lit accomplishment. Wishing you all good things for the New Year.

. . . 1 force· A TRUE FRATERNITY ts a brotherhood of men bound together by a common spmtua ar~ Before the altar, at initiation, the neophyte receives his first vision of this force, and the sp• of fraternity idealism is kindled in his heart, later to grow into a pure bright flame. d 11e. 0 The indifferent brother in our midst is a living witness of an initiation service poorlY bO In him the spark was never kindled or was so feeble that it died. Every fraternity carries on its rolls those ~er· have never received or enjoyed the fraternal vision. Nor can it be given to them after initiation. The brot hood profits nothing from their membership. the The responsibility of initiation officers is therefore heavy. For it is on them the duty rests of giving to nit}' neophyte the correct emotional impression. Unless he receives the spark through the ritual, his opportu to gain it is gone forever and Pi Kappa Phi sustains a loss. r tO Correspondingly, the privilege and benefit of being an initiation officer is great, for it is no small honothat kindle the fraternal spark in another man- the spark that is to make the flame eternal. Strange but true, he who starts such flame himself enjoys a spiritual growth. whO Chapters everywhere, therefore, are urged to entrust their initiations only to those best fitted, to ~105 e dded have the spark and who will give the most care in performing the ritual- that ceremony which will g tve a spiritual force to the initiate, the participating brothers and Pi Kappa Phi .

T BIRTY YEARS ago three young men at the College th of Charleston in South Carolina, during some of ose sessions so dear to the hearts of all students ;hen they often talk nonsense but just as often dream reams, felt the need of a closer tie than the classroom can 路 t gtve and they dreamed a dream. They set to work tnake that dream come true, and on December 10, 1 ~ 0 4, they met and organized what has since become th.Pha Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi, and since that time 18 date has been set aside as Founders' Day and all o~er the United States chapters of that great fraternity ~e ebrate in honor of the three men who made their ream come true. ti Now the college fraternity is a peculiar and distinc;e ~ode of expression of college ideals and among ?se tdeals necessarily should be scholarship since the rtl~ary purpose of the college is to educate, that is, to ra,n its youth to know and express the best in the variOUs domains of human experience and knowledge. Ac~~rdingly in the very first Article of the Constitution of 1 t ~appa Phi among the stated objects of the fraehr.n,ty is the one "to encourage excellence in scholar-

s 'P路" 0拢 course, it is assumed that each chapter will do its lltznost to epco)Jrage and recognize excellence in schol~ship among its members, but in order to keep this ~ear constantly before the active membership, the Upreme Chapter, in 1926, determined upon a mode of ~OCedure whereby outstanding scholarship among its embers would be recognized and the outstanding ~olars would be honored with a suitable award that asOuld represent the same excellence in scholarship t c~aracterize the award of that great scholarship fraifrntty Phi Beta Kappa. And it was realized that simariy a great honor could be paid the Founders by hav-

ing these formal awards made a part of the Founders' Day celebration. So on each Founders' Day since 1927 the outstanding scholars of Pi Kappa Phi, not to exceed nine, are honored, and on Founders' Day, December 10, 1934, the eighth group of Pi Kappa Phi Scholars, seven in number, joined those who have gone before. That the fraternity may know them better the Chairman of the Sd10larship Committee hereby presents the Pi Kappa Phi Scholars for 1934.

In connection with the plans to tie the district archons more closely to the council and to obtain more efficient performance from them, it is to be one of the duties of the national chancellor to select the outstanding district archon ]. Theodore JocksotJ, A ll that the national organiDistrict 7 zation may recognize and reward him by presenting him with expenses to the next Supreme Chapter meeting. He will be chosen on the basis of his activity and effectiveness, and a few of the points to be used in comparison in the competition are: visitations, number and accomplishment of each; activity promotion relative to expansion in number of alumni and undergraduate chapters and intra-d istrict conferences and gatherings; and general cooperation and frequency of contact with the national organization. To further the work of the district archon by a full explanation of his duties and prerogatives and a few suggestions on procedure, National Secretary William J. Berry has prepared an excellent bulletin with this purpose in mind. It is a valuable addition to the accumulated bulletins on phases of the organization, which eventually will be distributed in printed form.

The fraternity is most fortunate to have these progressive, experienced men looking to its welfare in the far reaches. Of the newer men, we are able to introduce some fully and hope to complete the roster of introduction in a following issue. J. Theodore Jackson and C.

In Memoriam Thomas Francis Mosimann Died April 12, 1934 THE spring of as in the years previous, the INboys in the high school became very much interested 1902,

in baseball. One Friday as I was sitting with a group wondering whether or not it would be financially possible for me to see the game that afternoon, a tall slim lad passed by us. He was not known to the group and none spoke to him . A little later I noticed this boy in conversation with a friend of mine. My friend called me and said- "I want you to meet Tom Mosimann, one of the luckiest boys I know. He lives on the same street that the ball grounds are on and he sees all the games from his upstairs piazza." Tom smiled and said-"Yes, and I want both of you to come up this afternoon and every Friday for the rest of the season." I accepted his invitation with alacrity and thus was begun a friendship which lasted for thirty-two years. As a boy Tom was solemn and studious. Whatever he had to do he undertook seriously and went into most thoroughly. As a result he stood at the top of his classes and developed those habits which enabled him to become one of the outstanding students at the College of Charleston.' The next fall I entered the college and renewed a friendship with Alexander Kroeg, who had preceded

By SIMON FOGARTY, Alpha me there by a year. It was through Kroeg that I was initiated into college politics in which he took 30 intense interest. During the summer we talked over the prospects for the following year and I told him that two good fellows were coming to the college; boys who would surely take an active part in affairs and whoffl we could count upon as being on our side. They were Tom Mosimann and Harry Mixson. When. colleg; opened we found Mixson a most willing assoc1ate an he soon became Kroeg's right hand man. Kroeg, noW a junior, was one of the most prominent men on the campus. We found that Mosimann did not acquiesc~: our plans as readily as we had hoped. He bad gra d ated first in his class in the high school and he h.a h ambitions to do as well at college and so did not""~\ to take part in any matters which might interfere ""1td his scholastic standing. We respected his wishes all soon we were as proud of his high standing as he wa_ 0 himself. W e prevailed upon him to join the Chre~~ . mathic Literary Society, and in the niceties of par~路 mentary procedure and in the opportunities offered h~ debates for the correct usage of the English language d)' found an outlet for his keen mind and his ever-rea d wit. Before he left college h e had won an hCn~res路 路 on place on the debating team and brought many deCISI e favorable to his Alma Mater. His ability to grasp t11 essential facts under discussion, his marvelous co~颅 mand of words, his convincing and authoritative ton~ ; his complete self-possession, his quickness to see t~. flaws in an argument, his ease and adroitness in rebut tal, all combined to make him one of the ablest, if n~ the most able, speaker of all the state colleges. 'fo t thoroughly enjoyed a discussion and this enjoymeog and his ability to use the spoken word lasted as loll as his health permitted. ,_ When Andrew Kroeg proposed to Mixson and 01;0 self the idea of forming a fraternity and aske~ u; to su~gest the name~ of men who sho~ld be .invite first jom, we naturally mcluded Tom Mos1mann m the ar draft. By this time he had completed his freshman yere with high general honors and felt a little more s~u ro in taking a hand in college affairs. We looked for ~is to give our new fraternity some prestige tl~~ou~h the high academic standing; his pronounced abdtty 1 ~ th' literary society and his position as a member 0 i~' staff of the college magazine. His joining the fraterncowas of mutual benefit. The fraternity gained a mend ber who reflected great credit on Alpha Chapte;lgn 1 a member whose life work in the Charleston of School so impressed the students that when manY (Continued

Friday night two men were initiated, Orville Christenson, senior, and Frederick Towell, sophomore. On Saturday the homecoming game with Kansas State was held. In the evening the fall dance was held in the new chapter house. And on Sunday the biggest event of many years-a very unique housewarming dinner was held in the spacious dining room of the chapter, which was filled to capacity with alumni, undergraduates, and girl friends. Howard Leake came out to visit the chapter, and took part in the big weekend. Alpha Omicron is very proud of its new home at 407 Welch Ave. More than one third of the alumni have been back to view the new home and pass their judgment. New alumni officers elected during the weekend were: Ed Dean, president; Kenneth Johnson, vicepresident; and Harry Mabbitt, secretary-treasurer. The undergraduates had a picnic fixing up the house this fall and with the able assistance of Mrs. Henry Geise, wife of Professor Giese, were able to finish decorating the inside of the house in a very at10

Alpha Epsilon Moves By BYRON L. HERLONG and JOE O'CONNOR ALPHA EPSILON returns to its own. That is about

~ the substance of the recent activities of the chapter to obtain a permanent residence which would be attractive and possess adequate space for the many ltlen which make up its membership. In making final steps to achieve this, the undergraduate and alumni building committees made the decision to regain the former residence owned by the chapter anCI to make the addition to it necessary to meet the requirements. To the former home of the chapter was added a wing Which permitted to the chapter a spacious dining room, not had before, and above it additional study and sleeping rooms to accommodate comfortably the many ltlen of the chapter. The older portion of the house was occupied at the beginning of the fall term and the addition was completed for residence a few weeks after the opening of the term. This addition cost in the neighborhood of $s,ooo and brought the total valuation of the property up to $30,000. The chapter is exceedingly proud of the home and considers it one of the most attractive of the fraternity residences on the campus. Formal opening of the house occurred during Homecoming in connection with the Florida-Georgia Tech game of November 24. Many alumni returned for the game and found themselves waxing enthusiastic over the house and the decidedly outstanding group of men of the chapter. A buffet luncheon followed by a dansant made up the social events in honor of the returning alumni. Brother Frank McSherry (Pi) brought his orchestra from Atlanta to furnish the ltlusic. An attractive feature of the homecoming was the stellar work of three men of the chapter in the game Which Florida won by the score of 13 to 12. The sports Writers were agreed that the narrow victory was mainly

An Appreciation At the University of Alabama, Omicron chapter of Pi Kappa Phi was one of the first fraterni ties to employ a house- . mother. Mrs. C. T. Fitzpatrick of Montgomery, Ala., came to us in the spring of 1932. She has been with us since then and has rendered the chapter many services. "Mother Fitz," as she is affectionately called, has added an atmosphere to the chapter which has caused comment from Mrs. C. T. Fit:(patrick all who have visited the d1apter. On the campus Pi Kappa Phi is known as the fraternity having the sweetest and most lovable housemother. She has become famous among the fraternities and sororities, and we feel that she is largely responsible for any advances that the chapter has made since she has been with us. Without Mother Fitz our social functions would never be as successful as they are. She has the interest of the chapter at heart, and we feel that we owe her more than we can ever repay. 13

The Man of Many Faces By LELAND F. LELAND, Tau Kappa Epsilon, in "The Fraternity Month" This interesting article concerning Robert Everhart, Alpha Nu, appeared in the November, 1934, issue of The F1'atemity Month, the interfraternity publication of which Leland F. Leland is editor and publisher. He is also editor of The Teke of Tau Kappa Epsilon. and gentlemen, looking to the right you LA-DIES will see two human beings, a man and a woman who are slowly turning to stone .. . and here is little Ruth, the small miss with three arms and four legs ... and here, my friends, is 'Popeye' in person." The red curtains were drawn back and there stood none other than Popeye the Sailor; his nose in his mouth, his skipper's cap over one eye, his pipe hanging from his mouth. In another instant Popeye was gone and a traditional hatchet-faced mother-in-law countenance had taken his place. "He's the man with a dozen faces. A college man, a Greek fraternity man." We stood and wondered what college and what fraternity- a tip to two editors' curiosities. So back stage we went to interview Popeye. His jaw back in place; his blonde head exposed, we found him in his cubicle and as the ballyhoo men took the next crowd around the amphitheatre of Ripley's Odditorium at the Century of Progress we listened to Robert Everhart, II K ~ from Ohio State University and Yale, tell how he wanted to see the Fair but being without the wherewithal either to get inside the gates or to go on home to Dundee, Ohio, he decided to try to get a job. Making faces was his stock in trade; he could make a crowd horrified, excited by gruesome oddities, laugh; he got a job with Ripley's. From his early youth he has entertained, has had ambitions to be a genuine comedian. Thwarted by family he took up his next talent, painting, after having tried pre-law upon his university debut in 1925. But dramatics claimed much of his time for he belonged to Scarlet Mask, University Players, National Society of Wesley Players and Forum, the Forensic Society. When 14

composition below is the offering of Harold H. Lewis, Nu, and Lawrence J. Bolvig, Alpha Xi, to the collection of Pi Kappa Phi songs. Lewis wrote the music and Bolvig the lyrics. It was introduced at the banquet of the convention as the, official convention song and received a great reception. It is urged u~on the chapters to adopt it as a general song, for it has the spirit and time to become well adapted to thrs purpose. , The words "to reaffirm our friendships once again" were originally written as "to hold a great convention once again," and were changed to accord to the song general character follov.:ing the convention. Both of these men are represented in the bound songbook of the fraternity by compositions and are therefore no strangers. "To Pi Kappa Phi" and the "Toast Song" came from the versatile talent of Lewis. To Larry and Mrs. Bolvig we are indebted for the "Dream of Pi Kappa Phi." Harold and Mrs. Lewis are prominently identified in the music circles of the great city; he as an instructor connected with the famous Junaud school, she as a concert cellist of note. Mrs. Bolvig ·is an · ' excellent pianist, while Larry confines his musical outlet to the use of hi~ pleasing voice. ·· THE

on October 19. Among the guests were Dr. J. R. Simms, John B. Gathright, chapter adviser, and Marvin Dooley. These men were all instrumental in the establishment of the local chapter-hence the inspirational talks which they gave were attentively listened to by both actives and pledges. . Elaborate plans were formulated for the observation of Founders' Day with a dance. This social event took place on December 14 instead of December 10 because of local complications. A Christmas setting for this occasion was adopted-a real "gift of fellowship" in the "season of good cheer." Leaders of the chapter are: Frank Hughes, a "shiner" extraordinary-being both a senior law student and MOAK, and sports editor of annual; 0. L. Casey, another shyster, another MOAK, and assistant editor of the lAw Journal; N. C. House, chairman of Dance Committee, president of Medical School; Rome T.

Our bowling team also is up to par, so far being undefeated, with the ultimate foal of retaining the cup won last year. Our recreation all team also will attempt to repeat last year's triUtnphs. The chapter's activity in the football channel of varsity athletics at present is a prospective instead of a ~oncurrent one. We had no members out for varsity ootball this year, but Wyler, a husky pledge, will be one of those present when spring practice opens. Also t\\lo other members of this year's freshman team are contemplating becoming Pi Kapp pledges. One of these ~oys is out for freshman basketball and is considered Ymany as a good all-around athlete. James Freshwater, varsity basketball timber, did not return to school this year. It is not very strongly doubted ~at he would have received the varsity "0" this year tf he had returned; he is a junior and is considering returning soon. lfarrison Wickie received his varsity "0" in baseball last spring and was considered a potential factor in ~e team's success.

.c. ;


new men and the moving into a really beautiful an comfortable home have been the chief factors in making the outlook for the 1934-5 year a most bright and happy one. The chapter is pleased to announce the initiation of Ellis, Rosenthal, and Johnstone, those men having previously been members of a local fraternity here at Sewanee, and since they have completed the necessary amount of work, were initiated into the fraternity. The chapter deems itself very fortunate in having these men as all three are very active on the campus. The chapter boasts the captaincy of the football team, Ralph Ruch having been elected to that high honor. Brother Ruch is also president of the "S" Club. All in all, the chapter is well represented in scholarship and athletics and is sure to continue to forge ahead. David E. Frierson was elected faculty adviser. Al11mni Personals Dear Brothers: Congratulations to Alpha Pi! That in itself would be enough, but I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for the way in which you put Alpha Pi "over the top." I must admit right here that I expected to see the chapter die at the end of this year. That feeling was creeping over me before I had the privilege of attending one of your rushing parties. But from the moment I walked into "the house" on that memorable night I knew that Alpha Pi was not going to die. You returned six men this year, one of them inactive. Each and every one of you was gloomy, you had just been through a very trying year. Things looked very bad and you were frankly scared to death. But what did you do, did you give up as so many would have done? No! you did not give up-instead you went to work with a fire in your hearts and an enthusiasm about your job. You made up your minds to put Alpha Pi back where it should be, and that is exactly what you did. You pledged eleven men which is just one less than twice your number and what finer tribute could you pay to our fraternity and to the three men whose vision brought about the "ideals" upon which it is built. And so to each and every one of you I say again, "Congratulations, brothers!" Fraternally yours, CHARLIE UNDERWOOD

Lamar Watring is president of the sophomore class this year and sophomore representative on the Student Council. The other fraternity politician is Woodrow Horn, vice-president of the senior class. The chapter has been honored recently with visits from District Archon Harold 0. Merle, and Executive Secretary Howard D. Leake. Their visits were both beneficial and most welcome. We are indeed proud to announce that John C. Johnston is our new faculty adviser. In him we see an able and competent leader, and hope to fulfill his expectations.

He is a graduate of Purdue University of the class of 1925 with a B.S. in Agriculture degree. After teaching vocational agriculture in Cambridge City, Indiana for three years, he returned to become connected with his Alma Mater in 4-H Club work, of which he is Extension Specialist. His excellent work in undergraduate study of agri路 culture brought recognition from Alpha Zeta, honorary in that field; his teaching ambitions led to affiliation with Kappa Delta Pi; that he was outstanding in intercollegiate debate is noted by his membership in Tau Kappa Alpha. In his senior year he managed The Debris, the annual of the university. He served the chapter in various capacities and finally as archon. He has continued his studies and expects to receive his Doctor of Philosophy degree in the near future. At all times has he maintained an interested and continuous contact with his chapter.

Chapter Advisers Not yet complete is the roster of chapter advisers. It is hoped that all appointments will be made prior to publication of the next issue of the magazine, that they may be listed and introduced to the fraternity. Changes in district lines were made to eliminate distance of travel and permit more intimate contact with the chapter in the case of the lower Mississippi Valley states. Byrd P. Mauldin's district will comprise only the State of Mississippi and is to be numbered 16. Clancy A. Latham's district will consist of the States of Louisiana and Arkansas. Oklahoma and Texas will be combined with old district 18 for the time being. Dr. Will E. Edington was returned to the chairmanship of the national Scholarship Committee. Reappointments were made of the two men who have served on his committee during the past few years, Dr. John E. Winter, Alpha Rho, and Dr. Robert Petry, Xi. Inasmuch as the terms of office of the members of the Finance Committee have yet a year or more to run, it was not necessary to reappoint these men. The budget adopted for the year totals $14,270 and is projected on the basis that there will be little change in income and disbursement over the actual figures of last year, which showed a surplus of approximately $900.

New Titles

No opposition to the legrslation by the final vote ot the chapters was recorded, so the amendments to the constitution passed by the recent convention are confirmed. They concern the change of titles of the national officers mainly, and as a result we now have a "National" Council composed of a "National" President, "National" Treasurer and so on. These changes in the constitution and the additional changes in the laws are now under consideration by National Chancellor Houser with a view to a publication of a new booklet of the constitution and law~ showing these changes. 33

In Memoriam (Conth111ed from page 8)

them entered the College of Charleston they felt particularly honored to be asked to join a fraternity of which he was a member. No name on the roll of Alpha Chapter is more revered than that of Thomas F. Mosimann. At the same time the fraternity did much for Tom. We, who were associated with him, soon discovered a new man. With us his sedateness and aloofness vanished. Instead of finding a man whose only interests were in studious pursuits we found one full of life, ready to laugh and joke, fond of rhymes, riddles and limericks and soon the sober young man became one of the ring leaders in all manner of foolishness. This hilarity and jovialness, however, was strictly limited to his closest friends. To others he was still the serious student. At the close of his junior year he won the much sought after Junior Medal given by the alumni association to the student who has won the highest general honors in his class. The next year, 1907, he was graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. From the type of college work be had done it was not surprising that Tom decided to enter the field of education. His first position was that of vice-principal of the Shaw School, one of the public schools in Charleston. It was while there that he met Miss Elise de Vineau, who soon afterwards became his wife. Their son, Thomas, has the distinction of being the second of the sons of the charter members to have been initiated into Pi Kappa Phi. In a few years Tom accepted the position of teacher of English in the Boys High School. He served in this capacity until 1925 when be became vice-principal and then principal in 1927. As a schoolman he exhibited the same qualities be showed as a student. The thorough preparation of his work, the seriousness with which be accepted his responsibilities demanded on the part of his pupils earnest endeavor and careful attention. As an administrator he won the sanction and approval of the superintendent and Board of School Commissioners, and the respect and reverence of his faculty. He did not spare himself in his application to his work and he expected his subordinates to show the same enthusiasm. He had no patience with the laggard or the indifferent, be be man or boy, and both dreaded to face him. Being the father of eight children he had a keen insight into child psychology and was readily sympathetic to those who were attempting to do their best. He has left us now, but the memory of what he strove to do for the youth of his city will long be kept alive by the hundreds of young men who attended his classes and who have realized or will realize that the highest qualities of a christian gentleman were exemplified to them daily in the character of the man who had been their high school principal. 34

His increased work and his gro~10j family soon took all his time and except for occaSJ 00 visits to Alpha he took no part in its affairs. I knew him as a student and as a fraternity brotheJ. I knew him as a man and as a fellow worker. :My a · miration, love and regard for him increased as the ye~s rolled by, and next to his beloved family I feel h~ absence the keenest. Little did I think that the sa privilege would ever be mine to write about the one who taught me so many things and among them a l.ove for poetry which he could recite with so much feeling. One of the verses of which be was fond was "Green be the turf above thee friend of my better days None knew thee but to lov~ thee, none named thee but to praise."

Brother Granger was home, seri~Usly ill. A telegram was dispatched from the banquet 0 ht.s bedside, wishing him speedy recovery. D Dtck Ultican, Alpha Delta archon, presided, while onald H.

All of the chapter's parties this fall have had large crowds. More than 40 couples, many of them alumni, were present at the Homecoming Party, November 3. It was the privilege of Alpha Theta to have 11 members of the Detroit alumni chapter visit us last month. Fred Dittman, Alpha Theta, archon of the Detroit chapter, acted as master of ceremonies and introduced National Treasurer J. Wilson Robinson, who gave an interesting resume of the national convention held in September. District Archon G. B. Helmrich also spoke to the group. Very fine short talks were given by Chan Johnson, Chi; Kyrn Nagelkirk, Alpha Kappa; W. C. Brame, Upsilon; J. 0. Blair, Gamma; Cecil Reed, Alpha Kappa; Prof. L. N. Field, chapter adviser, and Archon Jepson. Other alumni present were Alfred Smith, Alpha Theta; Karl Jepson, Alpha Theta; and 0. D. Bird, Alpha Theta.

A New Home for Alpha Omicron (Continued from page 10)

chapter house, at which we expect to find a large number of alumni present. Russell B. Johnson, is our new district archon. Russ was the first man to be initiated into Alpha Omicron and has always been quite active and interested in the affairs of the chapter. Russ graduated in landscape architecture in 1925 and has been doing quite well in his profession. He worked for sometime in Des Moines and later secured a job in Chicago until he thought he had enough experience and came back to Ottumwa, his home town. In addition to his landscape work he is operating a greenhouse. The men who are wearing our pledge pin at the present time are: Wendel Patterson, Burt; Robert Brown, Jr., Manly; Harold Varhanik, Manly; Cecil West, Coon Rapids; Dean Barker, Williamsburg; Ronald Elvidge, Burt; Merlin Haley, Floyd; Max Christie, Spirit Lake; Malcolm Anderson, Badger, Minn. ; Paul Sutphen, Villisca; Seth M. Huntington, Berea, Kentucky; George Pickard, Canada; Vern on Lyford, Manly. Along with twelve active members, this makes up the personnel of the Alpha Omicron chapter at the present time.

Gamma Man Becomes Target Because he is a member of the True American League, because he was author of a radio skit "The Little Red Schoolhouse," Albert Classen of the California chapter earned the antipathy of the communistic element on the campus and became the target of pistol bullets, one of which passed through his coat before imbedding itself in the wall of the building which he was passing. The League is a campus organization formed to combat the activities of communists on the campus. His play was a satirical poke at their policies and aims. The league members wear hickory shirts to indicate that the order stands for the principles enunciated and fought for by "Old Hickory," President Andrew Jackson. Commendation has been received from many sources by the president of the university for the patriotic activities of the group, which has been ceaseless in its campaign to rid the campus of a vociferous and troublesome minority.

Davies Chosen C. E. Davies, Alpha Tau, was recently elected to t he Posi· tion of national secretary of the American Society of Mecl~an~ ical Engineers.

Woodbird Anniversary The JF?oodhird, chapter publication of Alpha Xi Chapter, in its recent issue came forth with an interesting account of the history of the periodical written by National President Meisel. Along with The Star and Lamp, it has the distinction of being in its twenty-fifth year of usefulness. At the first Christmas dinner of the local fraternity of Psi Sigma, held in 1901, there was a Christmas tree, and nestling within its branches was a decoy bird. This was a replica of the woodbird, and in commemoration of the first yuletide party this bird was taken back to the house and enclosed in a g lass case. It now holds a position of distinction on the mantel of the house. Upon adoption of the policy of publishing a house organ in the early years of 1900, this memento served as an inspiration when a name was sought _for the publication.


GLORY REFLECTED BLACK LATEST news .Bashes from the University of Alabama relate the astounding in.Buence the chapter exerts in the local butlers' union. One butler of the chapter, Crawford Thomas, has just retired from the position of High Mogul; the other butler, John B. Hart, has recently receive_d a bid to join the organization. We offer to OmJ· cron our heartiest congratulations on possessing such outstanding brothers of the board.
