asked what my theory of art is or what is the meaning of my painting, I couldn't explain. But I can explain myself! I paint and draw because it is good fun! In painting I try to reproduce the object as I see it, bringing out its beauty without distorting or exaggerating. I've learned from painting that practically everything has some beauty-everything from a freight car to a pickaninny's face. I believe that you never really see an object until you have tried to paint it. The world is full of things and people to see, and they are all so interesting. How can anyone ever be bored ! Right now I'm having a wonderful time drawing and painting everything around me. I do landscapes, still-lifes, and portraits, but portraits are my favorite type work. I work in oil, water-color, charcoal, pen and ink, and pencil. Oil and pencil are my favorite mediums, however. As I said, I do more portraits than anything else,






especially portraits of negroes. I do so many ~;get. I suppose for several reasons. They are easy ther ' pose. There's nothing a grown negro had ra or~'~ than sit still (as anyone who employs negro;rero:路 knows) , so most of them love to pose and. eosin! make splendid models. One fault with thetr 1 )l however, is that they frequently go to sleep w 5jer>l are working on them. The fact that they are ea r fe> draw than white people because of their coa~s~e [c 0 tures may have something to do with rny drawing them. ase However, I think I draw them mostly beca n t~ as 0 people they interest me so much. They are,. tb' 10 whole, more colorful than white people. thet路r r physical appearance, of course, and also tn . lief!路 to 10 sonalities. There are beautiful tones of brqwn 50 ~1 faces. (Don't laugh at me; it's true!) TheY t1 n i~ to h路 wear more color, too, than white people, r~the~ to se eluding collegians-excepting two of my frat r /,11~; Of J The Star and

give the excuse that the girl-friend is crazy for their portrait. I wonder. Anyway they are very kind about posing and are a big help in that way. As for the facts of my life-I am twenty years old. I was born and have lived practically all my life in Belton, a small town in the Piedmont Section of South Carolina. I'm now a senior at the University of South Carolina in Columbia and a member of Sigma chapter, Pi Kappa Phi. Like all other kids, until I was about eleven or twelve years old, I drew pictures of everything I saw or read about. Then I quit because I got the idea that it was childish to draw or paint. I began drawing and painting seriously as the result of a particular incident. It happened when I was fifteen and in High School. One afternoon I was alone and from sheer boredom, I copied in pencil the famous Stuart portrait of Washington. By chance it turned out very good. I was delighted and immediately decided that I was undoubtedly a genius. So I began right away to work hard to develop what I considered my remarkable talent. But alas, my succeeding efforts were not successful and I soon came to the painful realization that I wasn't a genius at all and that if I ever got anywhere, it would be the result o{ concentration and hard work. But I loved the work and kept on, and I'm still keeping on. I didn't have public school art, but my Mother, who

Of it els Usually do, they tell me exactly what they think

in t~~al!y_ negroes are just as different as white people weP and etr dtspositions, opinions, etc. Some are very shy

~ SCare~ee~ afraid to pose. A few have even looked isked sttff and run off without answering when I thelll them to let me draw their pictures. Most of hon ' though, are very pleased to pose and feel highly theiored. I have trouble getting any of them to sit in r eve d . . lt their fi ry ay work clothes. They all want to pose m t A. nest Sunday go-to-meeting clothes. {t subj ccording to all my good brothers, my favorite !• rnys:l~t next to negroes is myself. I do draw and paint lOok frequently, not because I'm so pleased with my use ., a!~as, but because I make a convenient model. I'm tr· as 1Ys there when I want myself, and I pose as long 10tll~ ~he~eed myself and in the position I want myself. So id. ing, I~Ver_I really want to study out a problem in draw0e~; to 'll>orthtmg, etc., I sit down before a mirror and get JSU3 ~y f. e!l tl to ha , raternity brothers themselves don't seem averse )the!' to se;tng _their portraits done.

My teachers, who have given me splendid instruction are Misses Katherine Heyward and May Marshall. I've taken courses in drawing and painting, lettering, poster and textile design and like them all. I believe, though, that I like drawing and painting best. I've exhibited in a national college art exhibit, a national wall paper exhibit and have had the luck to


win several prizes in smaller state exhibits.

Alumni from far and near have indicated they plan making the convention a part of the first week of their two weeks' vacations, planning to swing southward toward Miami before heading homeward. We suggest that all those of you who plan to drive down notify the Central Office. We are receiving requests for space in cars that are making this Pi Kapp journey and may be able to place a brother with you for the trip. You ask about the program ? about costs? about hotel accommodations? We reply that the program, while it cannot at this writing be announced is the best you could hope for, the best any city ca~ offer. Co~ts will vary depending upon your point of embarkation and mode of travel. In Jax all entertainment which is a part of the convention will be covered by your registration fee of $15.00. (And you won't have time for entertainment not included in the program.) Jacksonville's best hotel, the George Washington, has been selected as convention headquarters. Very reasonable special rates are being worked out and a schedule of these will appear in the May issue of THE STAR AND LAMP. This hotel is 100 per cent air-conditioned, is one of the best appointed hotels (Conti1111ed on page 9)

Chairman of Scholarship Committee N MARCH 1 scholarship blanks were sent to the secretary of each of the chapters for the use of those who wish to be candidates for the high honor of Pi Kappa Phi Scholar for 1938. All active Pi Kappa Phis who hold senior or second term junior standing are eligible. The maximum number that may be chosen in any one year is nine and, as is to be expected, only men with outstanding scholarship records are chosen. Those wishing to be candidates should get these blanks immediately, and after filling them out, they should have their records certified to by the chapter secretary and the dean or registrar of the college, and then send them to the Chairman of the Scholarship Committee. Each scholarship record must be accompanied by a good photograph of the candidate, suitable for use in THE STAR AND LAMP. All sch ol arsh i p records must be in the hands of the Scholarship Committee on or before July 1, 1938. The names of the Scholars for 1938 will be announced in the October number of THE STAR AND LAMP. The Pi Kappa Phi Scholars for 1938 will constitute the twelfth such group. The total number of Scholars to date is 79, representing 31 different chapters. The following chapters as yet have had no Scholars: Charleston, California, Wofford, North Carolina State, Florida, Michigan State, Alabama Poly, Mississippi, West Virginia, and Tennessee.



Pi Kappa Phi Scholarship for 1936-1937 The national scholarship standing of Pi Kappa Phi for the year 1936-37 was not as good as that for the preceding year, but higher than that of two years ago. The national rating is based on the all-men's average 8

}!.eal! /11/eeli.t"ff · . . . Pi Kappa Phi's George V. Denny, Jr., who directs the "American Town Meeting of the Air" Denny's programs consist of talks on controversial topics by provocative speakers and questions from the audience. What makes them exciting is uninhibited heckling. The speakers heckle each other and the audience heckles everybody. The auditors boo and cheer, are made up of the rich and poor, the well-informed and the ignorant. Once a questioner shouted: "I don't object to President Roosevelt's using the radio to inform the country on the state of the nation but I do object to his using it to propagate." Spectacled, wide-mouthed George Denny, who acknowledges as his chief inspiration Nicholas Murray Butler, says he bars stuffed shirts and academicians from his programs. He also says he would rather put on Author Wi11 Durant than Philosopher John Dewey. He admits his debates supply listeners with little information but conceives his rol e as that of stimulator. Mr. Denny wants his 3,000,000 auditors to be open-minded above all. An indefatigable user of hair tonics, bald Mr. Denny is, too.

More intimate details of Brother Denny's program are contained in the following very interesting story especially prepared for THE STAR AND LAMP: George V. Denny, Jr., a Southerner, born in Washington, N.C., a graduate of the University of North Carolina in 1922, holds a post in radio education today second to none in the .field. He is the founder and di11



rector of "America's Town Meeting of the Air," the nation-wide broadcast presented by the Town Hall (N.Y.C.) in cooperation with the N.B.C. which in the short span of less than three years, has gathered a weekly listening audience estimated, conservatively, at more than two millions and frequently hitting a high of between six and ten million listeners. In addition to his radio work, Mr. Denny is also President of the Town Hall, Inc. ; Treasurer of the Economic Club of New York, and a Trustee of the Institute for Economic Research, Inc., which gives some idea of what a busy man he is. "America's Town Meeting of the Air" is Mr. Denny's own idea. He has watched it grow until today it is considered one of the most popular educational features on the air-waves. More than eight hundred listening groups, in every section of the country, listen each week: in Y.M.C.A.'s, Y.W.C.A's., libraries, private homes, and even in several state prisons. When the hour is up, they discuss among themselves the topic of the evening. The prison groups are most interesting, tuning in on the weekly broadcast becoming a part of the work of rehabilitation of these men. The latest prison to organize a listening group is the Eastern State Penitentiary of Pennsylvania, located in Philadelphia. They joined the groups late in February. The prisoners listen to the broadcast and then debate the various issues raised. The forum is conducted under the supervision of the prison 's educational director. Mr. Denny acts as the moderator of the broadcasts. That in itself is a man-sized job. As everyone knows -who has ever heard "America's Town Meeting of the Air,"-the audience plays a stellar role, participating by expressing its opinion of the issues involved. Quite often there are boos and sometimes hisses for the speakers. Hisses, however, are discouraged since they do not carry well over the air-waves. Prior to going on the 'air there is an hour's period of discussion on the subject for debate, with the audience taking part. These discussions are often humorous, especial ly if some speaker gets warmed up to his subject and has difficulty in expressing himself. Personalities are not allowed at "America's Town Meeting of the Air." Recently one member of the audience was asked to leave after indulging in a personal attack on a Communist speaker. It is a difficult task to handle an audience of 1,600, the average that attends the weekly broadcast, but Mr. Denny has developed the necessary technique. He knows how to keep them in good humor, how to speed along the program. Here for readers of THE STAR AND LAMP, Mr. Denny tells the story of "America's Town Meeting of the Air." "I am often asked about the origin of 'America's Town Meeting of the Air.' The idea occurred to me

WITH PI KAPP AID by Pi Kappa Phi are two state · championship basketball teams. These unusual aggregations are the Maroons of Roanoke College, Virginia champions, and the Hatters of Stetson College, Florida state champions in 193 7 and losers of only three S.I.A.A. games this year. Both teams are coached by Pi Kapps. Eight of the nine members of the Stetson team are members of Chi chapter while two members of the Virginia championship team are brothers of Xi chapter and a third is a pledge of that chapter. Brother Chet Freeman, Stetson, '27, is the coach of the Florida team while Brother Gordon C. White, alumnus of Xi, is the coach of the Roanoke team which competed in the first national basketball tournament conducted at Kansas City. Gene Studebaker and Paul Rice and Pledge Sheffield represent Pi Kappa Phi on the Roanoke team and their work on the hardwood floor was outstanding. Rice was second high scorer in the state and Studebaker was not far behind him. The record of the Pi Kapp members of the Stetson team, as prepared by Earl Neeland, Chi, is as follows: Coach Freeman graduated from Stetson University

Tau chapter opened the second semester with a rush week which netted us four good pledges, with the prospect of at least four more by the end of the term. We have just recently refurnished our house and are very pleased witl1 ilie marked improvement made in its appearance. With more comfortable surroundings reali zed and our pledge group well organized, we are all set now to brush up on our scholastic standing this quarter. The winter quarter intramural athletics are well under way with Tau fighting to stay on top. The bowling team composed of Pledge Thomas Gaither, Brothers "Griff" Sloan, Boye Smith, Thomas Graham and H . S. Gibbs, is leading the league. The handball team composed of Broiliers "Mo" Barber, Thomas Graham, and Boye Smith, has reached ilie semi-finals undefeated. The basketball and boxing teams have not fared quite so well. The basketball team led by Brother "Buddy" Laughlin, is just about breaking even in the number of games won and lost. Only one member of the boxing squad, "Bob" Towers, reached the semi-finals. Alumnus Raymond Kuhn, Jr., has announced his marriage to Miss Anne Laird McLaurine, the wedding taking place on February 17. N . G. SMITH, Historian

Second only to the conclave in importance, was the very beautifully executed "rook walkout." Coming home from classes in the late afternoon the members were surprised to find not a rook in the house. Far worse--the entire evening meal was missing, and the electric fuse plugs were gone. Our resourceful manager, Brother Harris, made the suggestion (immediately and enthusiastically seconded) that the remaining brothers adjourn downtown to the "Brass Duck" for dinner. Later, much later, tl1e rooks returned. Someone had previously tripped the fire alarm so that when the fuses were replaced on the rooks return-'ell started popin'.

Just prior to the conclave, we performed an old ritual, house cleaning. No, the conclave was not the sole reason, we always scrub up a bit between semesters. Daily practice is the order of the day for the fellows who are to take part in the interfraternity swim. Our chances look good with Harry Heidenreich, Frank Slaven, Tom Speer and other as yet unheralded stars. Last year, we sang our way to permanent possession of the sing cup.
