HE MEETING of the National Council last April s~w the beginning of reorganization plans for the central office, occasioned by the desire of Executive Secretary Howard D . Leake to resign in favor of entering business. During the summer these plans were completed and the office is now well established in new quarters. A more central location in the city of Richmond places the national headquarters in the Grace-American Building at the corner of Fourth and Grace Streets. Four hundred and eighty-Jive square feet of floor space are now utilized. During the summer the executive staff completed the new, 96-page pledge manual which is now ready for distribution to pledges of all chapters. A new electric powered addressograph has been installed for maintaining the fraternity's mailing Jiles, speeding up addressing, so that work which formerly required two to three days can now be accomplished in as many

tinually advanced the magazine year in and year out until today it stands with the best fraternity magazines published. Perhaps the high points of his official career, insofar as the magazine is concerned, will be remembered as the pictorial issue of 1932 which won such high acclaim from fraternity leaders and THE STAR AND LAMP silver anniversary issue of October, 1934. The very fine combined history and directory of 1929 is a tribute to his foresight and ability as is the third edition of "Songs of Pi Kappa Phi," copyrighted 1930. His genius for accounting has led to a uniform system of handling undergraduate chapter records ; fraternity forms have been made more usable; and the files and routine work of the office have reached a point of high efficiency. Recently published in 1935 were nine central office bulletins designed to aid the undergraduates in the conduct of their active chapters, and more recently, in September of this year, the new "Pledge Manual" has been placed in print. All of these publications reflect the .fine syle of his editorial hand. They are worthy monuments of a great fraternity, conceived and completed by a most ingenious man. As we eulogize Howard D. Leake we must not overlook the more important work of an intangible nature he has done in reflecting over the material evidences he leaves with us. Howard continues to live the life of a true Pi Kappa Phi. He numbers his friends in hundreds among men in this and other fraternities in all states of the union and in many foreign countries. The value and satisfaction of these friendships are of course known mostly to him alone, and their (Continued on page 5)

VER TWO years of faithful and resultful work in the position of assistant secretary is John H. (Mac) McCann's preparation for the larger responsibilities which have come to him upon his elevation to the position of executive secretary of the fraternity. His record of performance was such that the National Council took it for granted that he was the likely successor of Howard D . Leake, following the latter's expressed wish to resign. Mac is well known and well liked throughout the far-flung dominion of the organization, for there are only four undergraduate chapters which have not had the pleasure and benefit from an official visit from him during his period of assistantship. A majority of the alumni groups know him and rate him highly on the basis of a brief contact and concentrated work in their connection. By correspondence he has extended his acquaintanceship widely among the individual members of the fraternity. His promotion by the Council has therefore met with high approval by those who are in position to know his personality and his abilities. He is out of Alpha Upsilon Chapter of Drexel Tech. It is one of the youngest units of the fraternity but one which has consistently maintained a high standard of chapter performance in all phases of activity. Mac was one of the early undergraduate archons of the chapter and did much to establish those excellent standards. That he is familiar with all phases of chapter activities and all types of problems to be faced in its operation is assured by the two years of working with the chapters of the fraternity and the fact that he held as an undergraduate member the numerous other chapter positions of chaplain, historian, assistant house manager, rushing chairman, pledge master and social chairman, all of which duties were performed most acceptably. He also represented the chapter in the campus Interfraternity Council. Sewickley, Pa., is the place of his birth, which was in the year 1912, and remains the home of his parents. He was married a year ago to Miss Mary E. Ballard, Delta Sigma Epsilon, of Norfolk, Va., a graduate of Drexel whom he met and squired while both were in college. Mac was an applicant for the position of assistant secretary long before the resignation of E. N. Franklin provided an opportunity for him to assume the duties. This evidenced desire for and interest in fraternity

Fe OIVar avoided no task and has given to each his best, 1 ~· I ing thought, enthusiasm and a praiseworthy p6 Bve ence.

Young Again Edits uThe Star and Lamp" By Howard D. Leake, Washington & Lee HE RECENT reorganization of the Central Office of the fraternity, required because of the resignation of Executive Secretary Howard Leake, presented the Council with the problem of disposal of the magazine, inasmuch as it was decided that other duties of Central Office were sufficient to occupy the time of the new office force without placing the additional burden of editing the magazine upon them. This led to a consideration of a part-time editorship by an alumnus and a subsequent announcement of the opening. Numerous applications were received from interested and capable alumni throughout the country, and among them was that of Richard L. Young, North Carolina, a former editor of the magazine. His past fine record in the position o£ editor of the magazine weighed heavily in the Council's choice of him to take over the task, and following a satisfactory arrangement between Dick and the Council, the office of editor was transferred to Charlotte, N.C. and into Young's hands. Those who were pleasingly surprised with the radical change for better of the magazine in 1920 and who enjoyed the subsequent issues placed in the mail by him, then titled Supreme Editor, will be pleased to learn that Dick is again to take charge of the publication. Those who have entered the ranks since his relinquishment of the editorship will realize with each issue placed in their hands that a master and staunch Pi Kapp is in control. He was among the first recipients of the merit citation of the fraternity, introduced for the first time by action of the convention in New York in 1934. It was in recognition of his many years of faithful and able editing of THE STAR AND LAMP, 11 years in all, during which time he established new and high standards of content and appearance. Wade S. Bolt, South Carolina, resigned as editor in the fall of 1920. Dick, then a youthful cub reporter on a Charlotte newspaper, was asked to take up the task and to carry on. A better paper stock, increased reading matter of interest, revised typography and the addition of decorative cuts characterized his first issue. His constant endeavors to improve each issue imparted qualities of vitality and attractiveness which were widely noted. He was retired to the sidelines when the

action was taken to concentrate all activities io Cof ~ Office, and now that there comes the reversa es? policy, it is but natural to see Dick take up the r ~ sibility again. It is easily perceived that the rnag' will be in capable and sympathetic hands. fj 0 Dick is the dean of the reportorial staff et!1 0110 Charlotte News, having maintained his .

Do You Want to Be an Actor? Kenneth Michael did. And here is the story of this Broadway trouper, better known to the brothers of Lambda and Alpha Alpha as Virgil M. Lettice, of Macon, Ga. His story of the "rough road to fame" is told to the Executive Secretary.

overseer on a cotton plantation. This part paid a good salary and, believe it or not, the same week I got a radio job on the NBC Sunday afternoon features Roses and Dt'ttms, a six weeks contract. Between the two salaries I was "in the dough." At least I thought I was until the six weeks were up. The irony of it was that at the same time I received my notice (fired) from Mttlatto. The world came tumbling down about my ears. For the first time in my life I knew the meaning of heartsick. I couldn't eat nor sleep, just walked the streets in a fog. The theatrical season was over for that year. No one wanted me. "Nothing until next fall" they would say. Then I heard of two plays being cast. I got a haircut, had my shoes shined, my best suit cleaned and pressed, took a aeep breath, put on my best smile, squared my shoulders, and walked in. It was so important that I make a good impression for competition was so keen during the dull season. The casting director was affable enough; but it was several minutes later while I was. wandering aimlessly toward Times Square that I realized he had said something about being sorry, that I wasn't the type, that there were no southern characters written in the play and with such a definite accent I would be thoroughly out of place. It was the same story more or less at the other casting offices. I don' t definitely remember what happened to me from the middle of February 1936 when I lost my two jobs until the following summer, except that I had saved some money during those six weeks and I lived on that until the following June when I joined the Barter Theater at Abingdon, Virginia. There I enjoyed the usual summer stock company life, returning to Broadway in September only to be informed by an agent that had I arrived in town a couple of days earlier I would have had a part in a well-known Broadway hit which ran the entire season. Nothing happened for the first few weeks. Being broke I again put my means of existence on the cuffs of my friends. (I suppose that the reason theatrical friends are so easy to make is because misery loves company.) I picked up five weeks with a "shoe-string" producer, playing towns in Jersey, Long Island and up-state New York. That soon petered out and I again, after paying off my obligations to my friends, began living off my savings, until the biggest and best opportunity of my theatrical career came pounding at my door. It was almost Christmas again (1936) . My finances had dwindled to practically nothing. I heard that casting was going on for Max Reinhardt's spectacle, The Etemal Road, and that although the principal parts were filled , they still were looking for big men for the smaller parts, understudies, supers, etc. I dashed madly down and into the office of Mr. Charles Alan from the Cleveland Playhouse, a shy lad to whom I shall always be grateful. He was very kind, asked me to sit down and tell him about myself. I did. Then he asked me to stand up, eyed me carefully up and 8

down. What was my height; six feet one; my weigh~; , one hundred seventy-five. He asked me to turn aroun,; walk across the room and return. I did. I knew he '~'~"'o. interested or he would have told me "no" long aghi My heart was pmmding like a sledge hammer--~ , ' wouldn't it slow down?

By Albert W. Meisel, National President

HARD DE BURY in 1344, one hundred years before the invenof printing, wrote about "Books" as follows: "These are the masters who instruct us without rods and ferules, without hard words and anger, without clothes or ?loney. If you approach them they are not asleep; if investigating, you ltlterrogate them, they conceal nothing; if you mistake them, they never gr~mble;. if you are ignorant they cannot laugh at you. ~he ltbrary, therefore, of wisdom is more precious than all riches, and nothltlg that can be wished for is worthy to be compared with it. Whosoever, therefore, acknowledges himself to be a zealous follower of truth, of happiness, of wisdom of science or even of the faith, must of necessity make himself a lover of,books." ' . These sentiments were later printed in the "Philobiblom," a book on the Joys of reading, in 1474. If de Bury could feel so about books before the invention of printing, 110 w ~uch more the appeal of his words today, when books are cheap and plentiful. Some of our chapters have been slower to realize the value of books than others. To those, I say, you cannot start a chapter library too soon. d. The proper titles for a nucleus of a collection may be secured under the f trection of the Central Office. Once started, there should be a regular plan or accessions. In one of our chapters this is now accomplished by each ~ember _of the graduating class presenting a book to the library; at anot~e~, ach ~ctlve brother gives a volume each year. Whatever the method, tt ts essential your library should grow, and this must be provided for. b Once established, regular use of the chapter library should be cultivated Y. every member of the chapter. Your books will not only promote scholarshtp but also will provide entertainment of any kind desired. . Brothers, I therefore request consideration of the establishment of a 1 /brary by each chapter as a project for the college year of 193 7-38. May ~ave your cooperation to this end? Of

Omegalite Wins Plaque A ward

1 kr\ N ITS second year of competition the President's Plaque, awarded annually for excellence in the chapter publication field, goes to Omega Chapter, Purdue, for the fine volume of the Omegalite presented in four issues during the last school year. To the chapter and especially the editors of this paper go the heartiest of congratulations of fraternity officials. Presentation of the plaque came as a distinct and pleasing surprise to most of the members of the chapter as District Archon Bob Amick gave it into the hands of the chapter archon before a homecoming crowd of upwards of seventy alumni on October 9. The competition last year was even more keen than that of the previous year. The number of chapters submitting entries more than doubled with issues coming from Gamma, Epsilon, Iota, Lambda, Mu, Upsilon, Chi, Omega, Alpha Alpha, Alpha Delta, Alpha Epsilon, Alpha Zeta, Alpha Eta, Alpha Theta, Alpha Iota, Alpha Mu, Alpha Xi, Alpha Omicron, Alpha Rho, Alpha Tau, Alpha Upsilon and Alpha Phi. Final judgment for the award was again in the hands of Walter R. Jones, national historian, and he raised the query as to whether all chapters had submitted all of their issues since in 12 instances he received only one copy of a publication during the entire year. Editors should take cognizance of this fact and be sure that their publications are all sent to the members of the national council, to the central office, and to Richard L. Young, editor of the STAR AND LAMP. In the year's competition second honors went to the Dusak of Alpha Upsilon Chapter. Following in the third· bracket were the works of Iota, Alpha Mu and Alpha Xi, all of about equal quality. The Omegalite excelled in general editorial excellence, format, alumni and interesting chapter news while the Dusak

Is High Scholarship Worthwhile? In one of his recent syndicated articles Dr. Albert Edward Wiggam in answering a question by Horace Heidt, the band leader, as to whether high scholarship equips a boy better for life than success in extracurricular activities, states that success in school studies is far more important. He states that since the depression many business firms will not consider an applicant whose scholarship is not in the upper quarter of his class, and some firms insist that the applicant's scholarship be in the upper tenth be f ore they will grant an interview · In a survey made by the Investors Syndicate, of Minneapolis, through questionnaires answered by 218 leading colleges and universities, as to the employment situation for 1937 college graduates, it was shown that the employment situation was better than for any year since 1929. As qualification for employment scholarship, personality, campus activity and popularity, character, leadership, and general ability were listed in that order by employers, with 51.4 per cent giving scholarship as the principal qualification, 19.7 per cent giving personality, and no other specific qualification was rated first by more than 5 per cent of the employers. Another survey shows that only 12 per cent of college graduates were without employment for an average of nine months during the depression, while 45 per cent of those having a high school education only were out of work an average of 29 months. Surely the above studies show that a college education pays and that high sd1olarship is almost a sure guarantee of an opportunity for the better positions. In general the best combination is high scholarship accompanied by a reasonable amount of extra-curricular activity. The studies of the Pi Kappa Phi Scholarship Committee have shown that in general the student with high sd1olarship is also prominent in extracurricular activities, for he has learned to study effectively and to conserve his time so as to be free for other activities. Our Pi Kappa Phi scholarship motto, "Knowledge (or Wisdom) Conquers," should be the working slogan of every Pi Kappa Phi. 13

HE BIG new animated electric sign erected over the Astor Theater to advertise its current movie, "High Wide, and Handsome," is the work of Douglas Leigh, Inc. So is the other animated sign, on the opposite side of Times Square, which for the past several months has been advertising Wilson's Whiskey to a capacity curbstone audience. We didn't consider it necessary to investigate the Wilson's sign; but when the Astor's appeared on the Square we realized that we were in at the beginning of a trend, if not a boom, and immediately looked up Mr. Leigh.

To those who were about to assume new offices went the help of experienced men-to those who had been out of their respective active chapters for some time went much that was new in the handling of fraternity affairs. All benefited. The morning session was not without certain emphasis upon the place of the alumnus in active work. Two men of proven ability brought forwaro pertinent facts along this line. These men were Ed. Beason, Alpha Eta, of Birmingham, and Clyde Pearson, Alpha Iota, of Montgomery. Nor was the session lacking in the color of song-fraternity singing being placed in charge of Jack Adams, Alpha Iota. luncheon followed with the table set for fifty and every seat occupied. As the boys from Chi so aptly phrased it last year, the enjoyment of the meal was interrupted only by the words of the then assistant executive secretary, John H. McCann, Alpha Upsilon, presenting what he termed an intimate glimpse into Central Office. Mac outlined the many phases of office and executive work carried on there, a subject interesting to everyone. Following the luncheon business was again the order of the day as Brother McCann assumed the gavel to lead the afternoon round table discussion. Of the many topics, the most pertinent were on summer rushing and chapter publications. As a result of the former a district-wide summer· program was begun that has by this time stood the test of its first season under fire. Results have not yet been gauged but when this is done they should prove of interest to the fraternity at large. No final decision was made as to handling chapter publications in the district.

There among the other graduate students she met Hulda Magalhaes. Miss Hulda Magalhaes, of New York and Hopewell, New Jersey, received her B.S. in 1935 from the New Jersey College for Women. She was awarded an assistantship at Mount Holyoke College, with opportunity to study for her master's degree. She was assigned to live at Eastman House. There she met Kate Wilkins, of North Carolina. The two girls became firm friends and spent many of their holidays together. They then learned that Kate Wilkins' brother, Robert Wallace Wilkins, is a brother in Pi Kappa Phi from Kappa chapter, that Hulda's brother, Willard Magalhaes, is a brother in Pi Kappa Phi from Psi chapter, and that Hulda's father, Frank Magalhaes, is a brother in Pi Kappa Phi from Alpha Xi chapter. The two girls received their master's degrees this June- Miss Wilkins an M.A. in chemistry, and Miss Magalhaes an M.A. in physiology. The degrees were awarded by President Mary Woolley, who retires this year in the one-hundredth year of the history of Mount Holyoke College.

HE SUDDEN, accidental death of Brother Ernest L. "Buster" Stroud, Jr., of Stafford, Alabama, brought sadness to his family and fraternity Sunday morning, August 8. The accident occurred in the early hours of the morning as Brother Stroud was returning to Clearwater, Florida, after attending a Yacht Club dance in Tampa. It brings once again within our very portals a realization of thehorrible toll taken on the highways of today. Buster was just 23 years of age and was on vacation after completing his degree work in the law school of the University of Alabama prior to entering advanced law at George Washington University. His career at Alabama and in Omicron chapter were climaxed last year as he led the chapter as archon and in the Interfraternity Council of the University. Initiated in April of 1926, he had always worked consistently and well for the advancement of his school and fraternity. He was a leader whose ideals and opinions were highly respected by all who came in contact with him. Funeral services for Brother Stroud were held at Selma, Alabama, with Pi Kappa Phis from Omicron and Alpha Iota in attendance as pallbearers. To his mother and father who survive him we extend the heartfelt sympathy of the fraternity.

• Education Defending the Classics tn (Dr. A. P. Wagener of the College of William and Mary writes of the work of the national committee on the Present Status of Classical Education of which he is chairman.) CAN well remember the thrill with which, exactly forty years ago, I began to study Latin. We used the old Collar and Daniell. book on which high school boys and girls of my generation were raised. The school was the High School of Charleston, the one attended by our founders, where the friendship began which later flowered into Pi Kappa Phi. We were all, so to speak, nurtured on the classical tradition, a tradition which still persisted in the South as the symbol of a real education and the mark of a cultured gentleman. Besides Latin; Greek, German, and French were taught, each of these languages having its devotees. It was actually a shock to us when, in our senior year, a teacher of the commercial branches was added to the faculty. How different this was from what we now .find in our schools and colleges! In competition with the natural sciences, sociology, economics, business, government, fine arts and a host of other subjects a steady decline of concern for foreign language study has set in ; while the number of students in the ancient languages is approaching the vanishing point. This is partly the result of altered conditions in American life which have affected the attitudes and interests of our boys and girls, our college men and women. Preparation for business and the professions has been emphasized as the objective of college education. Practical subjects are crowding the curriculum, each demanding its coterie of followers . The high schools are .filled with pupils, most of whom have no natural intellectual interests and require preparation for life's work rather than for advanced study. Furthermore the conception of a gentleman and a lady has changed. Where formerly acquaintance with the literatures, the history, the institutions, the philosophy of our own and foreign peoples, and the ability to converse upon such topics with charm and understanding were considered essential to social intercourse; we now have the radio and the movies to entertain us, demanding no contribution whatsoever on our part. At school and college, athletics and the social activities of innumerable clubs leave little time for browsing and selfcultivation in the refinements of the mind. The decline in foreign language study is only a part of the decline of interest in all the humanistic branches in contrast with those of immediate social import or practical application. Yet it is not without deep concern that those of us who have been reared on the classics observe the indifference of modern youth to the languages and literatures of Greece and Rome. For we have seen the service rendered by them to education in the past. We realize the impossibility of understanding and evaluating our own civilization without a thorough

Chicago Pi Kapps Start Fall Program After a "vacation" of two months, the Chicago Alumni Chapter resumed activities at the Stevens Hotel where a joint meeting with the ladies of the auxiliary was held September 10, officially opening the fall season. About thirty sat down to dinner after which bridge, tripoli, bowling, etc., were en· joyed for the balance of the evening. Mrs. Fred Dahlberg was the winner of first prize, a beautiful pair of vases, and Mrs. Cy Lowe was awarded a nest of ash trays as the second prize. Most of us were pleasantly surprised to have as our guest at the meeting our Executive Secretary John McCann who happened to be in these parts, and was able to arrange his schedule so he could be with us for the evening. Mac is a welcome guest at any party, and we were all mighty pleased to have him with us. Although everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly, a great mystery surrounds the events of the evening-a mystery worthy of some expert "Sherlocking." Jewell Burk and the beer were both missing, and both were scheduled to arrive together, the former bringing the latter-thus the mystery. We fear that there has been a reversal in form some place, but it is hoped that the beer has not taken Jewell for a ride. There have been no enlightening reports from the under-cover men to date. Fortunately the evening was cool, so those present with parched throats did not suffer too much from thirst, although the disappointment was evident. About twenty-five members and rushees were present at a Monte Carlo Rushing Smoker held at the Armour Tech chapter house on the evening of August 12. T?m Watts_ of Illinois was in general charge, and deserves credrt for puttrng on a fine party. Plenty of "money" was available for all present to start the evening, but it is rumored that a darkhorse got hold of the "bones" during the evening and broke the house. His story that it was his first experience at the game was doubted by some, but it's the truth-so help meor him. BERT EUSTICE

Looking back over the past year should serve as an inspiration and a goal to shoot for every year by the chapter. Alpha Omicron ranked near the top in scholarship and activities. Financially the chapter closed its books on the right side of the ledger. With the house being improved considerably we expect to easily have it filled to capacity before the first quarter is ended. Wayne Jackson, Leo Byrnes and Gerald Rickert were each honored with certificates for holding the highest grades in their respective departments in the agricu ltural division. Wayne has consistently been an honor student with an almost four point average for his past three years of school work. And he has not missed activities for he is a member of Alpha Zeta, honorary agricultural fraternity, on the staff of the Agrimlturist, magazine, and treasurer and steward of the house. Beneath the campanile Alpha Omicron scored again at the traditional Veishea tapping ceremonies when Leo Mores and chapter adviser ]. R. Sage, Registrar, were chosen as members of Cardinal Key, men's service honorary. Six juniors and six seniors are selected annually and the honor is considered the highest attainable on the campus. Sage was chosen as an honora.ry member for his outstanding work in his field. He is president of the National College Registrars' Association . Mores is business manager of the Student, college paper and president of Sigma Delta Chi, national professional journalism fraternity. The chapter's scholastic average for the three quarters, fall, winter and spring, showed both actives and pledges consistently improving. Starting with a fall quarter ranking of tenth among 38 fraternal groups with an average of 2.384 (all college average 2.147), the winter quarter saw this raised to 2.69. Not satisfied, the chapter went on to boost the average to that of plus three for the spring quarter, ranking second only to Acacia among the 38 groups of the campus. And while the actives were leading the way the pledges followed their example in raising the pledge average to seventh place among all fraternities. In intramurals, William Nechanicky led his teammates to the final league playoff in fraternity basketball on ly to be beaten out by tbe Tekes whom we had beaten once during the season. Nechanicky was leading scorer in the fraternity league, bagging 83 points in seven games. He will make varsity material this coming year. Initiations for the past year were Gerald Rickert, Reinbeck, Iowa; James Hood, Independence, Iowa; Benjamin Foot, Scotia, N.Y. ; Carl Proescholdt, Manilla, Iowa; and Leo Byrnes, Waukon, Iowa. Graduation took five members, Donald Field and Donald Patterson in December; Charles Schumacher in March; and Kenneth Thompson and Robert Brown in June. All received jobs upon graduation . Field has since married Miss Melva Morgan of Perry, Iowa. The en-

Another ann.oun ce·.0 ment from the ranks of the alumni is that of the marrtagei August of Brother Benn Nelson to Miss Mark Locke 5011 e)' of Dallas Center, Iowa. Their home is now in Adel, Ioll''· Brother Phillip Minges received his masters degree i~ Horticulture in June and is now working for his doctor degree. . 0 All Pi Kaps anywhere in the vicinity of Alpha Qrrucrog are asked to red Jetter October 30, the date of homec~Ol~e and our annual fall dance.
