THINK

it was on April 4 in the morning

that we first saw the signs on the campus. They didn't seem to make sense then. They said "Track down the penny snatchers" and "Why is Troy penniless" and "Are you a ·penny pincher" and "Save our pennies, there's a shortage." There were quite a few wild guesses at their meaning; everyone was talking about them, wondering and guessing. The next day it was still a great mystery with a lot of new signs. These ran "25%," "Cigarettes would be 9c without taxes," "There are 53 taxes on a loaf of bread," "Hidden taxes take 2 5% of your every dollar'' and "Every 4th dollar you spend is a tax dollar." Then it came out that Bob Bauman and the Phalanx (that's our honorary society) had really cornered the pennies of Troy. About 14 fellows went around to all the stores and gas stations asking for all the pennies for a "penny-ante poker game." Others went to the banks and asked for pennies. Each bank unaware of what was going on in the other banks came through rather willingly-one to the tune of 100,000 little coppers. From what the paper said the merchants of Troy had quite a time that afternoon when there was a real shortage of pennies. Many of the stores had to change their prices to even nickels, one store was giving out stamps for change. Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, Phalanx set up a booth and sold pennies. With each "purchase" went a little pledge card certifying that the bearer was a "Taxcentinel." The first one to buy pennies was our president Dr. Hotchkiss with $5 worth. Dr. Hotchkiss approved of the movement with a laugh. Dr. Meader of Russell Sage College also thought the idea a rather good one. The pledge later signed by nearly the entire student body reads as follows:

'ch

"To help fight the growth of taxes w:J~a! now consume 25 cents out of every dd est spent by the average person, I hereby en ·~c~ 1 the policies of this non-partisan, non-poh organization known as the "T "It shall be the purpose of this . f to focus public attention on the evds 0 d practice of keeping concealed taxes an awaken in the public consciousness a tion that 70 per cent of all taxes now by more than 175,000 separate taxing in the United States are obtained secret levies tacked on to the price of sities we all must buy daily-food, shelter, luxuries, and semi-luxuries. . "Since the average man does not realize inroads made upon his purse by these hidden taxes and that he himself paY~ major costs of the government instead 0 Rockefellers, Morgans and du Fonts. I pledge myself to pay 25% of the all purchases in pennies in order to !Je the situation to the end that it mar remedied."

liE HISTORY of Pi Kappa Phi at the University ?f Alabama during the years immediately followlead tng the World War is the story of one man's had ership.

Our chapter, hadts small, poorly furnished house on a side street, frat to compete with long established and well known ern路t路 1 tes which had beautiful an d comma d'tous ~rick: 'th mansions on Alabama's famous "Avenue." 1~ be chapter survived its competition, surmounted '~do stades, grew in numbers, developed in character bee assumed a respected place on the campus, only o~ea~se. of the love, loyalty, ability and stickability of a f tts members. He was George Mcinvale Grant, 1 Chaa~ student from louisville, Ala., archon of his Oft~ er for several terms, and later Supreme Secretary Ge fraternity for two terms.

local post and later as Department Commander for the entire State. He is an able lawyer, and for several years has been county prosecuting attorney. And now the same George Grant, whom we in the chapter lovingly called "Papa George," has been elected a member of Congress from Alabama's second congressional district, to succeed lister Hill, now a United States Senator . Another member of Omicron chapter during that post-war period was Joe Starnes, who was elected to Congress from the fifth Alabama district four years ago and has served in that office with ability and distinction since that time. George was archon and Joe was treasurer of Omicron when I became a Pi Kappa Phi. Of course I am proud of them both. The old and young of Omicron chapter are proud of them. And I know the Fraternity as a whole is likewise proud of them.

• • • can't hide its light under a bushel and be well known. Now don't Jet that Biblical hybrid put me in the wrong light; the fraternity hasn't necessarily been shunning print, but I believe that we are agreed that additional publicity of a favorable nature would be acceptable. The world knows much about fraternity playboys and those Greeks who make news through horseplay and things worse. That is a far too frequent happening. On the other hand, what about news of a constructive nature? Let's see if we can make a workable plan for promoting more stories of that type. Our active and alumni chapters should not expect the national office to bear the entire burden of publicity. Aside from all other objections, the geographical difficulty would rule out such a set-up. One of the first things a publicity man must learn is that editors like material written especially for their readers. Each chapter-both alumni and undergraduateusually has the personnel to form some semblances of a publicity bureau. At least one or two persons have taken or are taking courses in journalism. If not, almost any person with a fair use of the King's English can familiarize himself with news writing technique sufficiently to prepare acceptable news stories. During the past winter, I have acted as an unofficial "publicity counselor" for several Michigan State fraternities and sororities. This was done to aid some of my journalism students in publicity writing. Before these persons gave serious consideration to an organized plan of chapter publicity, about the only times their groups were mentioned in the local newspaper (which is also the campus newspaper) were in connection with parties, initiations, and pledgings. And of course in the campus gossip column. These organizations were overlooking good stories right and left. Or permitting them to be mishandled. For instance, a one-sentence mention sufficed for a founders' day banquet-an occasion at which a Dean

discussed "the changing order in fraternity life." G~~ coverage of the Dean's talk would have shown rea ea.! of the newspaper that this particular organization "'·ts NOT composed of swing-crazed youths and diln·"''er incapable of desiring serious discussions. Anoth . campus group entertained a fairly distinguished aitJ(Il, nus one week-end who had returned recently froJllis· European trip. The local newspaper not only :0 3 spelled the man's name but dismissed the event W'~e laconic "Dr. So and So spent the week-end at J Alpha Gamma Alpha fraternity." This man, who~:·· brought the college much fame in the "twentle ,5 through his football playing, has a wealth of nede material on the European situation. Recently he .fll~sb a rather miraculous escape from a besieged spa;\.e city.

He's ~eir than an average reporter if he can spell correctly JllBf names.

Atmosphere was none too pleasant and a difficult job confronted Coach No. 26 State has had since football was inaugurated there in 1890. Nine men reported for spring practice as a flock of others left in Anderson's wake, but Doc kindled a friendship betwe'en himself and the students that at this writing is the principal topic of conversation wherever Wolfpack followers gather. A successful campaign in the face of great odds was waged last football year and now optimism prevails on the West Raleigh campus even in the face of the toughest schedule State has been called on to tackle. State supporters are optimistic because they know their team will make a good showing-win or lose. That spirit of optimism is spreading over Raleigh, wh id1 in the past has looked on State College pretty much as a red-haired stepchild. The personable mentor is chock full of dry wit. He is a friend to members of his squad. He works with the faculty, the townspeople, the press. He is a keen student of football and from his inventive mind has come the Newton system of football-a

in better contact with the people of Europe as they really are and not through the mouth of a lecturer on a conducted tour. Many of these "Hostels" are quite pretentious, some even being converted castles. Some of the highlights of the trip being anticipated are cycling down the Rhine, visits to European universities, including Oxford and Heidelberg, a promised typical English dinner of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, a trip through the famous English lake district, the beauty of the Alps, and the sea voyage. The accompanying picture shows the prospective wanderers planning routes and side trips in preparation for the trip. Many of the spare hours around the chapter house are spent in this way as the time for embarking draws closer.

Pi Kappa Phis have been honored with the scholarship pendant and certificate which are awarded on Founders' Day ead1 year. Thirty-one chapters have had one or more Scholars during the past eleven years. Purdue has had the most Scholars with a total of ten, followed by Davidson and Presbyterian with seven each. Alabama and Furman have each had live Scholars, followed by Georgia Tech and Armour Tech with four each. It would be interesting to know where each Pi Kap.pa Phi Scholar is now and what he is doing. Ascordtngly the names of all the Scholars are given here so. that all Pi Kappa Phi may know who they are, wtth the hope that each Sd1olar will write to the chairman.

Co-uncil ./llleet~ TO PLAN PROGRESS

o-i

EETINGS of the National Council of Pi Kappa Phi are always very enjoyable and profitable gatherings and that of April 1-2-3 was no exception. The meeting this year was scheduled for three days instead of the usual two in order to better permit the national solons to study the advances made by the fraternity under the guidance of a new executive secretary, to allow them more time to map out sound, long-range programs of future policy, and to become more intimately acquainted with the detail workings of the Central Office. The extra day proved to be very satisfactory and a feeling of definite accomplishment pervaded the air as councilmen were homeward bound. Those of the membership who have never been privileged to sit in on one of these meetings cannot fully appreciate the work accomplished, nor enjoy the high humor that runs throughout such a gathering with Lawyers Meisel and Houser sparring with Engineers Helmrich, Berry and Jones. We can only tell you of the fish dinner George Helmrich ordered only to .find that shad roe really presents only a "potential" fish dinner. You can see, only through our eyes, the National President with a waste basket between his knees, fully enjoying a very juicy Florida orange while discussing the plans for the coming convention in Jacksonville; candid cameraman Jones got one snap of that feat of skill in masticatory procedure but unfortunately we have not received a copy for the magazine. In Richmond for the entire session were National President Albert W. Meisel, National Treasurer G. Bernard Helmrich, National Secretary William J. Berry and National Chancellor Theron A. Houser: National Historian Walter R. Jones could not get away from his post as chief engineer of United Air Lines in time to make the entire meeting, but arrived with stories of flying around Richmond unable to land because of the fog. Had to go back to Washington and complete the journey by train . STAR AND LAMP editor Richard L. Young came in for the Sunday sessions and much interesting discussion ensued on the policy and make-up of the magazine. It was extremely pleasant to have the telegraphic good wishes of past execu:ive secretary Howard D. Leake of Birmingham. Sitting in on the meeting were John H. McCann and R. Lynn Kennett of the Central Office staff. The session of Friday morning, April 1, was devoted largely to approval of reports and the finishing

have about .fifteen Jacksonville men in the a! apter now who are tops in their native city. They've bi:eacly acquainted the bulk of our chapter with a te dof their southern pulduitude and now we are eva Y to pass that knowledge on to you. Say! We're en going to have a register for all dates. You know, of Pi Kappa Phi

something like a rogues' gallery-only this will be a rouge gallery. The girls will be classified as to height, weight, color of hair and eyes and, wherever they can supply a good one, there'll be a picture. Even our archon, Jack Stephen Smith, or just plain "Pinkey" to us, is from Jacksonville and he promises to lend his master.fu.l domination of the opposite sex to the task of obtammg dates for the visiting brothers. District Archon Coulter has told us of a few plans he has personally, and if George gets a chance to put them into o~eration, Jacksonville will stand a good chance of bemg selected the permanent meeting place of the Supreme Chapter. Our gang down here is planning to make Alpha Epsilon's attendance 100 per cent. From reports at Chi I ~elieve their plans are the · same. And after talking wtth the Lambda brothers at Georgia, whenever we catch them at our women's college, I think they'll be there in a body. We can't argue with the Gamma chapter about the advantages of Florida climate and the like, but we can say to you that we'll have everything in readiness for the best convention in the history of Pi Kappa ~hi: F:om Alpha Epsilon th~n, greetings and a hearty mvttatwn to be on hand m Jacksonville next August. 13

S.C. Ben has within his jurisdiction the affairs of Alpha, Beta, Delta, Zeta and Sigma. He succeeds W. H. "Beevo" Arnold of Greenville in this key position. Ben received his B.A. degree while at Presbyterian, took his B.S. degree at the University of South Carolina and his M.S. at Cornell University's New York City graduate school. He held numerous fraternity offices as an undergraduate and enters the ranks of District Archons with his efforts in establishing the Florence Alumni chapter still very fresh in our memories. In District Nine Brother Ralph R. Tabor, Alpha Alpha, took over the reins as DA in November, filling the vacancy left by the removal of Brother H. 0. Merle from Ohio to New York.

. "What's this?" demands the Judge. "What good IS it for you to win if you get back in trouble as soon as you're on your own?" Bill grins sheepishly, but he is not so dow~cast as John Smith who lost a bet and, so, took a s•xtyday sentence on the roads. Bill won his bet and his slate was wiped clean. This is a new offense. , "I bet I can stay straight for thirty days, Judge. I Ve done done it once." ."Think you can? Very well, if you're back here in th•rty days you get sixty." .

the Little Theater and in the clubs, they take a prominent part in the city's social life. His future is as unpredictable as his past in a succession of surprises. Smooth, well equipped and honest, he is dynamic for all his suavity. Politics, perhaps. It will be interesting to see what, for Frank Sims always moves and never in circles. The success that was to come to Frank Sims in later life was indicated in his college and fraternity days at Oglethorpe where in 1919 he was elected to membership in Pi chapter. He was chapter archon for two years and was prominent in many phases of college activity. In his senior year he was president of the student body, president of the Senior Class and valedictorian of his class.

Council Meets to Plan Progress of Fraternity (Contin11ed from page 12)

ticular campus methods of doing things so that we may concentrate on subjects or problems general throughout the fraternity. The alumni round table is a new venture and is brought about mainly because of the many queries of interest from alumni on fraternity matters of all kinds. This round table will take place separately but at the same time as that of the undergraduates and will include such topics for discussion as ( 1) a history of our suspension laws in practice (2) how can alumni chapters better coordinate their activities with those of the active chapters? (3) the fraternity's expansion policy ( 4) educational programs for alumni chapters (5) the place the alumni chapter has in the civic life of the city. Should any member reading these lines have a particular interest in any of these topics or care to have other topics placed on the agenda for these discussions it is desired that he communicate this interest to the executive secretary. Further matters of general interest covered in Saturday's sessions included final approval for manufacture of alumni charms for the fraternity. These charms are advertised by our jewelers in this issue of the magazine and may be secured by any member of our alumni or any senior in an undergraduate chapter. A resolution was adopted setting forth the National Council's opinion as to the investment of its STAR AND LAMP Fund. This is as follows: WHEREAS, the Finance Committee of the PI KAPPA PHI Fraternity has presented through the National President a request for a statement from the National Council as to what, in their judgment, should be the investment policy of the Finance Committee in handling the principal of the STAR AND LAMP Fund; RESOLVED, that the National Council state to the Finance Committee that they believe: 1-that the present ratio between investments in legal and investments in non-legal securities as established in Sec. 7,

15


Law X of the Supreme Laws of 1937 should be maintained ; 2- that earning power should be given due and proper consideration consistent with safety of principal, on the theory that neither safety of principal nor earning power is paramount, but that the two are intecdependent and that the investment policy must be based on a fair consideration of both; 3- that a wise investment policy cannot be outlined by the National Council in detail, but only in principle, its working out being left to the sound business judgment of the Finance Committee appointed for that purpose; and be it further RESOLVED, that it is the opinion of the National Council that under the provis ions of Sec. 7, Law X of the Supreme Laws of 1937, the Finance Committee has full power and authority to keep in cash such part of the STAR AND LAMP Fund as cannot, in their judgment, be safely invested.

Council attention was then focussed on many of the problems that have confronted the central office since the opening of the present school year. Discussion of these and of expansion concluded the work of Saturday and early Sunday. The remaining time in session was spent discussing with Editor Richard L. Young his plans for the future of the magazine. As councilmen departed on their various ways the fraternity nerve-center, central office, shifted into high gear for the last lap of a very successful school year.

Right Kind of Publicity Big Asset of Fraternity (Contir111ed from page 7)

The local angle will be made still stronger by mentioning other members of the fraternity known in the town to which the story is sent. For instance: "Other members of the fraternity from Anytown include Charles Smith and George Brown." Although I can't wax enthusiastic over the selling value of fraternity publicity, unquestionably stories about home town men who are in Pi Kappa Phi tends to make prospective pledges think favorably about the fraternity. In this discussion, I believe that some mention might be given to other media of good will besides the newspaper. I refer to the college radio station. According to the 1936 report of the National Committee on Education by Radio, college-owned stations are maintained at 12 institutions that have Pi Kappa Phi chapters. These are: Oregon State, Iowa State, University of Oklahoma, University of Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State, Purdue, University of Florida, Cornell, Alabama Polytechnic, Georgia Tech, and Rensselaer. Most of these stations likely have campus newscasts at which time they broadcast material concerning the student body and organizations. The chapter pub-

16

licity man should familiarize himself with the pos~i· bility of having some of his more important fraternity news used . An additional good-will method, quite apart fro!ll newspaper publicity, that is overlooked is a letter t~ parents of a new pledge. The parents, who shoul feel a vital interest in their son's activities, are often ignored by the fraternity. A good way to show the!ll that their son is not pledging an irresponsible group as pictured by the movies and fiction would be for the chapter to send a friendly, informal letter to ~e~ after the son has pledged. In brief, the Jetter ~~g 1 explain how the house is organized, the nat1~n~ organization, welcome the parents to the fraternity s circle of friends, and assure them that their son was with a group with whom his parents would be weJco!lle guests. t After all, little, personal individualized touches out of the ordinary go a long way in showing people .th~. Pi Kappa Phi is NOT "just another college fraterntt}'·

By that I mean, nu matter how much your fraternity has meant to yort in the past, the spirit of brotherhood in your he~l' must be fed and nourished by contacts with the brO ts ers, in order to survive.

dows in the convention room so as to dazzle Pi Kapp orators with our shining personalities. Met Bill Parsons, publicity man extraordinary, as he was bound for a meeting of the main committee. Can easily see why that Lmnberman' s J011rnal gets on so well with Bill in the editor's chair. And that fellow with him Larry Walrath; it's easy to see why the men in Ja~ chose him to lead their alumni chapter. Larry is one grand guy and every Pi Kapp should make it a point to really get to know him after shaking his hand at the head registration desk. Lunch time already . . . boy that meeting really moved along. Seems only about ten minutes since recognition and registration .... Let's see ... at the registration desk I met Milt Williams, Watson and Walt Stevens, all down from Delta, Ned Martinson of Alpha Theta, Jimmy Canfield, alternate from Ole Miss and Alpha Lambda, and that young fire-ball Ray Cannon, Drexel Tech's ace representative. . . . Just before the first call to order I had the privilege of shaking the hands of Si Fogarty and Harry Mixson .. .. Have always wanted to talk with our founders and now that I have I want to even more. . . . Caught up with the good Dr. A. Pelzer Wagener just before the gavel fell for the first time. He's certainly looking well. . . . Sat with another Past Supreme Archon, John D. Carroll, the sage of Lexington, S.C., and Billy Monckton, charter member of Sigma. Billy is the young fellow who says he won't really believe life starts until he hits fifty, then watch his smoke. . .. Just in front of us sat New York's Larry Bolvig and Johnny Stevens, with Frank McMullen of District 1 and Bob Hanson of 21. And over there is the one and only Gil Spahr (honeymooner in Seattle) . . . wonder who gets the laurels here in Jax. . . . Right across the aisle is the third District's Reg Price. Reg has been holding his boys in line now for ten years and says he's beginning to feel like he's understanding the job ... although he will say undergrads change like the weather. Let's see, ten years, seems that should be some sort of record for future D A's to shoot at. But they won't catch the Charlotte flash for he goes right on. Like Lou Gehrig, never misses a game. . . . Those appointments of Al's for Nation~! Chapl~in and National Warden certainly met wtth unantmous approval. He can really pick them. . . . And Coon Coulter knows how to make a group feel really welcome to Jax. When he elaborates on that program I wonder again whether I'll ever head back to the coast. . . . Among the prominent Pi Kapps introduced that I haven 't shaken hands with were past D A Forest McGill of Rho, the one and only Wilbur White, down to record the proceedings and make of this convention a history as of old, D A Bob Amick, Omega, head of Eleven, D A's Covington, Hurt, Joe Cannon, Rice, Tabor, Field, Jermin, White, and Johnson (who thought up to the last 23

How about joining with Westfall and Judy of Alpha Rho, Jim Robinson and Bill Walker of Penn State and us after the curfew rings down the last curtain? And now, Pi Kapps, every one of you, if we haven't met yet there are still three days of this convention to come ... you've had a preview ... we've enjoyed it and want to live it with you this coming August. Circle the dates now, AUGUST 16-17-18-19. They fall on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The gloom and sleet added a touch which made it very effective. The following evening we had a TaxCENTinel dance.

August of this year, the 16th to 19th, our Supreme Chapter meets in Jacksonville, Fla. This you probably know and should not forget. And you should, by all means, make plans at once to attend that meeting as a part of your vacation program. I can hear some one saying, "Why did you go to Jacksonville in March? Why didn't you wait?" And an explanation is due one and all. New York in the winter is a fine place to catch a heavy cold and then have it remain for some time. And my cold liked me so much, I couldn't shake it off! A suggestion or two, a father-in-law, a doctor, and a good wife soon had me at Daytona Beach for a two-week sojourn. Having had a part to play in the New York Convention and knowing from experience what Brother George Coulter as General Chairman. of the coming meeting was going through, I just had to take a day out of my recuperative program and drive the 90 miles from Daytona to Jacksonville to see the Pi Kapps who are planning for you and me. I hopped in my car and after a tour of old St. Augustine, which you should visit after the convention, I arrived at the law office of Brother George Coulter. We had never met before but being a Pi Kapp broke down any obstacles that might have delayed a real talk. And George and I went to work. After a telephone call, Brother Mitchell Permenter, Alpha Epsilon, in charge of entertainment, joined us. More interested did I become every minute. The entertainment planned is as good, if not better, than any I've ever heard before for a Pi Kapp convention. Brother Permenter, possessing boundless enthusiasm, is a sure bet to see that no slip-up occurs at any time. Being a Northerner and remembering how hot New York can become in August, I had wondered about Jacksonville during the summer months. My questions brought forth answers and facts from Brother Coulter which proved that Jacksonville does not become hotter in August than does any other bigger city, for example, like New York, Boston, or Chicago. Subsequent discussions with other Florida acquaintances and looking at weather bureau figures double checked what I had been told. So, to you Pi Kapps of the north and middle

Be west, you'll be as cool in Jacksonville as any plac~~ 1 Po And during the evening, probably cooler, as there Pat always a breeze. fac "Larry, let's take a walk over to the hotel where the the Convention will meet," suggests Brother Coulter. fai And we're off! I'm startled! The George Washingto;· the best of several good hotels, has been selected a Yo the Committee. It is the only 100% air-conditionertl hotel in the city. A fine lobby, splendid meeting roo . accommodations, fine rooms for guests with all upd to-date conveniences. Off the main lobby is a silver a~ e blue decorated cocktail room, the equal of any I v seen in New York. Some hotel! I George Coulter gets his Buick roadster and soo~al am riding through Jacksonville's lovely resident! e section. As we pass the city limits, George tells ~­ taxis take you to these limits for only ten cents. Ja sonville is beautiful, with its many trees, paJ~etto:t lawns and houses. 'Tis not long before we arr1ve ail lost the Florida Yacht Club where I'm told a cockt party-dance may be held. The Yacht Club bears plen~ I ao of description but believe me when I say that the pi~ Ule swimming pool, fine dancing facilities, lawns, 0 t and the porches, bar and scenic beauty, assures you the es party possible for everyone. . htS Back to George's office after more impressive Slg of Jacksonville. I meet, at an exclusive grille, the ){e; Committeemen who are working with Brother Co~Ites· The first to arrive is Brother William (Bill) Jenning J Chi chapter, who is to handle Accommodations a:. 5 1 Transportation. Bill already has the answers to .d problems, like the good lawyer he is, and be not afral to count on Bill to set you up right pretty. si· Lawrence (another Larry) Walrath, Alpha :E~ g Ion, follows Jennings.

ends to do his share to make the Jacksonville ConVention a success. C. T. Parsons, Chi chapter, the Publicity man, is ~ut of town and I regret that I did not meet him. ~t Brother Coulter has a .fine group of key men and I ~tth t~ese and other Pi Kapps serving on the various S01Umtttees, the job is in good and capable hands! I Uccess is assured ! 1 But the big surprise is yet to come. After our little Pow.wow, I'm taken to the oceanside and to the fa~ous Ponte Vedre Bath Club. Here is to be held, rn told, a bathing party followed by a buffet supper and formal dance. This club, folks, in my opinion, e. ~Uals such famous places as the Lido and Atlantic is each clubs on Long Island. It has everything. A large I Po~J brilliantly lighted at night, surf bathing also, fat~~ dance .floor under the stars, beautiful lounging ~Ctltties, bar accommodations. It's the kind of place I r. 1 f ~ New York Committee had hoped to secure but atled to do so because of exorbitant charges. But Your Florida Committee has turned the trick, secur-

ing special and unbelievably low prices. The glorious Ponte Vedre Club should provide everything for the outstanding social event of the Convention. Sadly, I tell the Pi Kapps I must return to Daytona Beach. Before I leave I learn of other social parties you can read about in other stories in this issue of STAR AND LAMP. I say "Adios" to as .fine a group of Pi Kapps as I've ever met. As I motor along the roads to Daytona, I feel certain that our Jacksonville Supreme Chapter meeting will prove as good, if not better, than any Pi Kappa Phi has ever had. To you Pi Kapps of the north and middle and far west- our Pi Kapps of the south will be in Jacksonville- go to Jacksonville on your vacation. Put up the sign ''I'm Jacksonville Bound." Florida is a glorious place, summer or winter. So many interesting places to see. You'll never forget. All accommodations are arranged for your benefit at cost. This is one Convention you and I should not miss. May I meet you at the Convention which I feel certain will be a great one. I have had a pre-view!

Calling the Roll Alumni Chapters

Personals

Philadelphia Alumni Chapter On the night of April 1, the Philadelphia Alumni Chapter was tendered a party by the Alpha Upsilon chapter of Drexel Institute. The chapter house, 3401 Powelton Avenue, was the scene of gay reunion for many old grads of Penn State, Drexel and Duke. A few new faces from the Southern chapters were also noted in the forty-two men present. Congratulations to the active chapter for a most noble and successful effort in binding together the Philadelphia Alumni Area. An announcement was made that the annual spring formal dance of Alpha Upsilon wi ll be held at the Manufacturers' Country Club, May 20, 1938. The date was selected so that an entire week-end of celebration could be had as a fitting commemoration of the Fifth Anniversary of the founding of Alpha Upsilon. The afternoon of Saturday, May 21 has been set aside for initiation of all men of the former local fraternity Kappa Sigma Delta into Alpha Upsilon. A stag banquet is scheduled for the evening at 6 P .M. in the chapter house to which all active and alumni brothers are cordially invited. This will be followed at 8 P.M. by an informal dance. If any visiting brothers are in or near Philadelphia, don't fail to attend this special Saturday program. An election of alumni officers was held for the current year, as follows: Mike Biggers, Penn State, president; John Deimler, Drexel, vice-president and Dick Oberholtzer, Drexel, secretary. The meeting was then followed by refreshments, cigars and card playing. RICHARD 0BERHOL TZER, Secretary

Xi chapter is closing out one of its most successful terms. Returning to school with an unusually large membership, and initiating during the year a large number, we are now planning to close out a very good year with the task of arranging a fall rushing program before we leave school in June, and with the possibility that we will return in goodly numbers next September as a result of our increase in membership this year. Graduation will take only three men from the chapter, namely Harold "Pu" Perdue, Tommy Moore and Vernon Stanley. All three, however, have been active in the work of the chapter and their services will be missed a great deal.

The entire house ~s turned into "Steve Brodie's Beer Garden" for the night. d .e chapter room contained the bar and gambling table. Such ~~nks as "Sweet Adeline Sour," "Sullivan K.O.," "Gay se~eties Fizz," etc. (all commonly called sod~ pop) were lle ed, Roulette was indulged in at the gamblmg table, the c rson having the most money at 11:30 being awarded a ~rton of ciga rettes. "Torrid tintypes" were also taken in d e chapter room for a dime. The social room was elaborately ~~orated with signs announcing such slogans as "Free , 103Se of Silver" "Vote for McKinley and Roosevelt," "Re· ··•etnb ' " "Don't Miss Beefy Bertha at the· Cham· , . er the Maine •au, • · · 1 drtn Opera House," etc. The orchestra was appropnate y !i· ssed, and at 11:30 played the hits of the "Bull Durham \>:~ Parade." For those interested, "Daisy" proved to be the da ner.

initiates of this semester are Alan Gilbert, Joe Mioduski and Les Moate. Although the absence of Bill Hoheisel, last year's resident adviser, has been keenly felt by all of us, we nevertheless set a new chapter record in scholarship by having eight men with grades over a four-point average. Robert Taylor was one of two students at Illinois to receive an architectural award in a contest sponsored by the Beaux Arts Institute of Design, New York. This institute makes up problems for various architectural schools which are members and upon completion of the problem by the students, a preliminary judgment is held at each school and the best are sent to New York for a final judgment. There they are judged and the awards of the Institute are made. Robert was awarded a "first mention" for his design of a park shelter for a National Park . Newest of the honorary fraternity initiates is Frank Marlow, '40. He was taken into Pierrots in April in recognition of his work on their last production "The Drunkard." Baseball seems to be the order of the day here at Illinois. Harry Ruyter and Hal Simpson have proven to be good varsity pitching material and AI Vitacco, a pledge, is practically sure of seeing action in the infield.

Chi

Stetson

Chi chapter initiated two men February 26 and 27. They were George R. Haskins of Oak Park, Ill., and Truett Stoudenmire of De Land, Fla. Brother Stoudenmire has two brothers who are Pi Kapps. It is the custom at Stetson to have a football game after spring practice is over, between two squad teams, the Green and the White. Tl~e White team was victorious this year by a score of 14-0. Pt Kapps on the two teams were Kirkland, Sch~efer, Rowell, MacDonald, Gaughn, Drake, Griffith, Smtth, Hall, Swanson and Cheatham. The Mystic Krewe, honorary leadership fraternity, initiated eight new men this spring. Of these eight, four were Pi Kapps-Brothers Robert Young and Carl "Peanuts" Hulbert and Pledges John Griffith and Thomas Cobb. ' Brother John H. McCann, executive secretary, visited the chapter recently and discussed, among other things, plans for the National Convention to be held in Jacksonville, August 16-19. In a recent meeting, William Ceely of De Land, was chosen as Chi's delegate to the convention. The chapter also decided to issue a paper this month to be sent to all alumni informing them of the plans being made for the Nineteenth 'supreme Chapter. A local fraternity, Beta Mu, at Southern College in Lakeland, invited Chi chapter in a body to visit them in the City of Lakes. We graciously accepted the invitation and spent the week-end of April 23-24 with them. We were very hospitably entertained and enjoyed our brief stay there. Graduation will take several of our brothers. Those to receive the sheepskin are Robert Young, past archon; Richard Branham, president of the student body; Ray Cagni, intramural managers; Lloyd Pawley, archon; Paul Maier, secretary; Carrol Ezell, past chaplain and Neal Faircloth, chaplain. The chapter was visited by two brothers from Rho in April. They were on their way to Rollins College to participate in an intercollegiate rowing meet. We have also had several brothers from Alpha Epsilon visiting the chapter during their spring vacation at the University of Florida. EARL NEBLANDS, Historian

Omega

Purdue

In February Omega chapter was the proud host to National President Meisel, after the district conclave in Chicago. During his stay we took him to see Purdue's championship basketball team in action, with Brother Fred Beretta playing guard. The annual T-A-P dance, held March 4, came up to everyone's expectation. Thanks to a fine dinner and an excellent band, the affair was a decided success. Particularly did the girls seem to appreciate the crested jewel boxes given as favors. This spring Omega added to its ranks the following men: Oscar Bowles, Roy Hall, Dick Springate, Rolund DeHoog, and Thomas Harris. Both Hall and DeHoog have also been pledged by Skull and Crescent, sophomore honorary organization. They have been particularly active on the Exponent, Purdue's daily newspaper. In keeping with the customary success of the affair, our Mothers' Day-May Day festivities again marked a social highlight of the year. After the interfraternity "sing," Saturday, May 7, the house was turned over to the mothers. A formal dinner climaxed the period of gaiety on the Sunday evening following.

We are expecting to have a good representation at Jacksonville from Alpha Alpha, with many brothers, both active and alumni, already making plans to attend along 'with the official delegate of the chapter. The chapter would appreciate it if alumni would write us if they are planning to attend-those who have not already notified us of such intentions-so that we may know whom to expect for a reunion of the chapter. Alpha Alpha took third place in the interfraternity radio contest with a play, written by Brothers Harper, Chastain and Robinson. CORNELIUS HENRY VAN BUREN, Historian

Alpha Delta

Washington State

Turning on the heat to win, Alpha Delta finished the quarter at Washington in a blaze of activity. Outstanding among the chapter's achievements was the revival of the Alpha De/tan, chapter publication. With Dan Hill in the editor's chair, the staff turned in plenty of copy for a late edition. The Seattle alumni association backed us up with an up-to-the-minute alumni roster which was mailed to all local and nearby Pi Kapp alums. In the social field, Ray Hall, who handles arrangements this year for Alpha Delta's social functions, lined up a program of events that kept the boys "stepping" all quarter. The big occasion, of course, was the house formal, held in the Mayflower Hotel, in downtown Seattle. Swinging to the strains of the Silk Toppers, a record crowd of alumni, actives and pledges "big appled" until the wee sma' hours. This, supplemented by the Oddities dance at the house in the fall

32

quarter, and a number of informal firesides, aided in boosting the Pi Kapp social stock to a new high for the year. Taking a leaf from the chapter notebook of the brothe~~ on-the-coast, Alpha Delta staged a Mothers' week-end t first of this month. Final plans included an overnight;~a; at the house of all mothers of actives and pledges. e were shown the campus, entertained at luncheon, taken to.t~~; and. to top it off, were guests of the members at the untq f Studio Theater, Washington's tiny, intimate Divis!on ~f Drama project which seats but sixty people on aJl stdes the stage. e From the sports angle, Alpha Delta has been right in therg pitching. Taking second place in the all-University ping pon k tournament, Howard Bayley, Jack Jeffery and Henry Novan batted their way into the semi-windups only to lo~e t~nt smooth-stroking team from a neighboring house. Wtth for defeat in mind, all hands rolled out on April Fool's day the an early morning tussle at touch-football, only to have n game postponed. Business has been rushing in pledge work. Thirteen ~~i· have been pledged since the first of the year. Four men dy tiated; a new crop of neophytes due this month. And alref ll the goal of twenty-five is drawing near, with plans for t~e rushing receiving advance attention. Present plans call for ·d arrival here of several men from Alpha Zeta chapt~r to a~e in policing the crowds during fall rushing, and, if tt can rs arranged, a special visit from Dr. George Allan Odge ; 11 Pacific coast councillor-at-large.

for two years and was an outstanding student both scho• lastically and in ~ampus activities. He was chosen a Pi Kappa Phi scholar and elected to Phi Kappa Phi. Byrnes was also a member of Phi Kappa Phi and both men were members of Alpha Zeta. Both maintained an average above three point and did much to keep our chapter among the top five of the thirty fraternities on the campus. Jackson now has a position as 4-H Club agent for Tama County and Byrnes is in business with his father at Waukon, Iowa. Gerald Rickert, our junior steward-treasurer, has been chosen as Alpha Omicron's delegate to the Supreme Chapter meeting in Jacksonville. Russ Lichtenstein is alternate. Carl Files is back in school after nearly six years' absence. He has one year left before graduation. Dale Swisher, '33, has been in Ames for the last two months working for the Currie Engineering Company. Pi Kapps are invited to attend our annual spring sport dance to be held at the Sheldon-Muon Hotel, May 28. A dinner for guests will follow on Sunday. During Christmas vacation our house suffered a four hundred dollar fire damage in the basement. The loss was entirely covered by insurance. In the process of renovation, Nu-Wood ~eiling ":'as put in the d!ning room and new plaster and lights tn the kttchen. The entire first floor had to be repainted and rewired. Defective wiring was advanced as the cause of the blaze. The initiation of Verne Upmier and Oren Thomas adds two more names to Alpha Omicron's roll of membership. A 0 Pi Kapps have been smoking many engagement cigars the past few months. Among the engagements announced are tho_se of Paul~s lange, now studying at the University of Chtcago, to Mtss Margaret Stanton, social life director· and Oren Thomas to Miss Dorothy Andrews, senior at the' University of Minnesota. One Alpha Omicron brother has gone a step further and announced his marriage--Harry Mabbit to the former Miss Jacobson, of Story City. Harry is employed by the Highway Commission and they are now making their residence in Ames. LEO MORES, Historian

Alpha Rho

West Virginia

After days of extensive planning and arranging, Alpha Rho brothers threw open the doors for their annual spring formal to one of the largest crowds in the history of the affair. This occurred April 1, with many alumni and friends in attendance. The pledge class held a smoker for the actives in March and invited several non-fraternity men in to meet the entire Pi Kapp chapter. We made a good impression on the visitors and succeeded in pledging Charles Goodlin, a Pennsylvania boy. Among recent visitors to the chapter house have been Arde~ Tric~et, '37, and Thom.as Williams, '36, both formerly promment tn Alpha Rh_o affatrS. B~other Tricket is planning to attend the Jacksonvtlle conventiOn. We are expecting to have at least two representatives of the chapter at the convention. Another interesting edition of Alpha Rhose has just come off the press. Spring rushing was satisfactory and our annual spring initiation saw new faces among the active group of Alpha Rho. HARRY WORKMAN, Historian

Alpha Sigma

Tennessee

Lots of water has flowed under the bridge since our last report to the STAR AND LAMP, and the Pi Kapps at Alpha Sigma have been working hard toward improvement. We were favored with a visit by Brother Lynn Kennett soon after he assumed his duties in the Central Office. He did much

33


for the good of us all, and particularly would we like an opportunity to even up that ping pong series. As a result of renewed interest the Knoxville alumni are cooperating with the actives in a weekly rush party. Each week several of the brothers come out for dinner, the actives bring in the prospective men and the good work is started. This system not only makes an excellent impression on the rushee, but also keeps the alumni in closer touch with the active chapter. We are hoping that the system will continue successfully, and would especially like to thank Brothers Ernie Bowles and Ed Dunnavant for the work they have done. Spring is in the air, and school will soon be out. This means that plans for next year's rushing are under way. We would like to take this opportunity to remind the alumni of the service that they can render in this work. So drop us a card and Jet us know your present address so that we can begin to work with you. Also let us know something of your work and of other brothers near you so that we may keep our Jiles up to date. The brothers are retaining the old stride of being leaders in campus activities. Brothers Cobb and Richardson are both trying to outdo the other in the mile run. Carl Adkins is continuing his work as an interior decorator. With the aid of Brother Lynnwood Poole, Alpha Iota alumnus, he succeeded in putting up one of the best schemes ever used for the Junior Prom. In the recent campus elections, Barry Cecil was elected secretary of the All Students' Club, and Pledge Howard Bowles was elected treasurer of the Junior class. Ed Byrd was defeated for the presidency of the Beaver Club by one vote. Barry Cecil was also selected as Barnwarmin' manager for the coming year. Recently we have had the pleasure of having visitors from other chapters with us. Brother Joe McCoy of Tau dropped in again. Also Brother Leake of Iota was with us while attending a Chemical Engineers' convention here. Brother Richardson, chapter treasurer, intramural manager, and member of Scabbard and Blade, has been selected as Alpha Sigma's representative to the Jacksonville convention. Brother Carl Adkins, co-op engineer and chief henchman for the DuPonts, was chosen as alternate. Several. other actives and some of the alumni are also planning to "Make Trax to Jax." So, until August, we bid adieu. BARRY CECIL, HiJiorian

This recor~ ce the same as that of last year but we hope to jump a P a to or two when rankings are made after the spring term. John J. Dempsey, our secretary, was unable to ret~ ed school after spring vacation. He was confined to hts \e with congestion of the lungs. He now reports that whenthat had recovered sufficiently to sit up, his doctor confessed laP he had had pneumonia. Since Brother Dempsey does. n?t P Jl. to return to school during the present term, WtlhaDl Conover has been elected to Ell his office until June. .g Our social committee worked long and hard in plan;tn our formal dance for Post Sophomore Soiree, on May. · H.
