MEN AT WORK Edi tor's Note: This interesting story on the work of Ceci l M iller Hefner, Xi, oppeored in The Sa turday Evening Post and is reprinted in The Sta r and Lamp by special permi ssion


Brother H efner, just before the take-off.

VERY Monday afternoon at three, Cecil Miller Hefner deserts his golf, his workshop in the basement or his householder's chores, puts on his uniform, packs his bag and goes off to work. Young "C. M.," age six, little year.,nld Gwen Lee, and dark, attractive Mrs. Hefner are all usually on hand to wave good-by as Hefner leaves his sixroom rented house on Manhasset Bay Estates, a section of Long Island 's suburban Port Washington. Thirtyfive minutes later Hefner parks his car at LaGuardia Field and starts the routine of his job as captain of one of the 238 transports which use the nation's No. 1 airport every day. In 192 7 there were 103 pilots employed by this country's air lines. In 193 5 there were 863. As of December 31, 1940, there were 2310 reg-

ularly employed pilots and copilots, who during last year transported more than three million passengers to their destinations. Cecil Miller Hefner, who, at thirty-three, has just completed his second year as captain for the American Airlines, is a typical member of this small but growing army. This week the Porst tells you what it means and what it takes to be a pilot on the nation's air lines. The Job Hefner's first stop at LaGuardia is the pilots' locker room in one of American's three mammoth hangars. Here he picks up his mail and chats with other ships' officers. On the second floor, overlooking the field, is the line's operations office, where he checks in one hour before his flight is scheduled to leave. Hefner's run

is between New York and Nashville and the initial step in preparing for the flight is a study of the weather conditions over the route. At the meteorologist's desk Hefner carefully examines the weather charts and, the expert's analysis-a case history of conditions up to that moment. To this information he then adds the latest reports coming in over the nationwide teletype system. With a complete picture of the weather conditions the flight will face, Hefner sits down with his copilot-or first officer- and makes out a flight plan. This is a preview of the trip, indicating where he ought to be for every minute of the flight. Finally, this flight plan is discussed with the line's flight superintendent. Both the captain and the superintendent must clear the flight; either may cancel it. With his flight plan O.K.'d, Hefner gives his pilot's kit a last check . Logbooks, maps, mechanical manual of his flagship, manual of flight procedures, navigation and power tables, navigating instruments, .38 caliber pistol, sunglasses and flashlight must all 'Qe there. Leaving the orderly confusion of the operations office, he joins his first officer in the cockpit of the twelve-and-one-half-ton Douglas transport, now drawn up to the passenger-loading gate. The copilot has already run up the engines, checked the fuel and the radio equipment, set the ship's clocks and arranged for the distribution of the express and mail in the fore and aft compartments. Hefner rechecks these details and contacts the field's control tower by radio. When the ship is loaded and the passengers aboard, he again contacts the control tower, receives his traffic clearance, and, under its instruction, taxis out to the specified runway. Here the engines are given a final run-up and the tower is contacted for authority to depart. Approximately three minutes after the scheduled departure time of 5:05, Hefner lifts the big ship off the ground and heads south for Nashville. Beside him, the first officer is busy raising the landing gear, guarding all engine instruments, and signing off with the control tower. Once in the air, the actual flying of the ship is divided three ways. In fair weather and in level flying the 4

automatic pilot often controls the plane, guiding it along a predetermined course. Climbing, descending, or rough conditions call for manual control, which Hefner shares with his copilot. Following the general practice, be also allows his flying companion to make perhaps half of the landings and take-offs. The copilot keeps the flight log-on the back of the flight plan-and does most of the radio-communication work. Hefner, meanwhile, busies himself with the navigation, checks all reports and calculations and generally supervises the flight. At least once every trip he likes to saunter back through the passenger cabin, talking to the "load" and answering questions. At 10:59 P . M. Hefner raises the lights of Nashville's airport, after stops at Washington, Cincinnati and Louisville. En route he and his copilot have eaten dinner in the cockpit. In Nashville, Hefner spends Monday night at a downtown hotel frequented by air-line pilots. The line pays for his hotel accommodations, Hefner for his food. General practice is now for lines to pay all "awayfrom-home" living expenses. Hefner kills his Nashville evenings by taking in a movie, reading or visiting with other pilots. In common with most of his fellow flyers, he keeps early hours and lives temperately. Tuesday, at 12:03 P. M., he leaves Nashville on the return trip, arriving in New York at 7:15. Wednesday and Thursday are Hefner's days off; on Friday he starts another two days of work. His first officer follows the same schedule-two days of flying and two days off. For flying approximately twenty hours a week, for spending six to eight hours a week in preflight preparation and post-flight reports, Hefner receives a captain's base pay, starting at $133 a month. This base pay, over a period of eight years, will be raised to a maximum of $2 50 a month. In addition, Hefner receives flight pay calculated on an hourly basis-averaging $4.50 an hour for day flying and $6.7 5 for night flying. Total monthly pay for captains starts at about $600 and increases to $800 as pilots add to their tenure of service and bid in-that is, request a transfer when there are vacanciesmore lucrative runs.

contact between them. It must be constantly nurtured with factual information about the fraternity 's activities. It must have a real appeal to that desire we all have to serve our fraternity. It would be presumptuous for any of us to assume that such a program can be picked out of thin air and instituted in a perfected state so that it immediately enlists the full support of all. We must begin somewhere. As our mistakes are made they must be corrected. On this theory a survey of our alumni was made in late 1940. It disclosed that a considerable majority of Pi Kapps lived within a fifty mile radius of at least one other brother. In theory, then, the development of our program was possible through personal contact. We set up 18 alumni provinces throughout the country, secured chairmen for sixteen of these during 1941. To each chairman we said, " Here is a file of alumni in your province. Go after them. Establish relations with key men in every town with five or more alumni living therein . The first big job is to get Brother John Doe acquainted with his home town Pi Kapps. While doing this seek a tangible measure of interest through collection of Voluntary Alumni Dues." What progress has been made? Alumni welcomed the idea. Only a few gave tangible evidence of jnterest through payment of Voluntary Dues, but many more have shown they want the plan to succeed. When we look at the 781 odd dollars received in Dues from 487 men we say, " that's not enough." But remember, that is a whale of a sight better than nothing. The money itself has been segregated in a special operating reserve. Expenses of the program have been met out of current operating budgets. That reserve, needed today

as never before, is growing. In this month of January, 1942 , $100.50 has been added from 44 men. Have you COME THRU FOR '42? Mistakes have been made- plenty of them. We found our provinces were too large, the details of maintaining files too cumbersome, the Alumni Relations Committee (made up of province chairmen) too large to function effectively. Revisions have been made. Today we have 28 provinces. Accompanying this article you will find a list of them . As before, each is the charge of an alumni chairman. The Alumni Relations Committee is now to be composed of six men in addition to the chairman, our National Historian . These men are being selected on the basis of their proven ability, their known interest and their geographical location. None will be directly responsible for the work of any one province. Each will be responsible for promoting the work of from three to seven province chairmen. Through your province and this committee you can project your personality as a force for the continued advancement of Pi Kappa Phi. So COME THRU FOR '42 . Let us have your VOLUNTARY DUES as evidence of your desire to share in the success of this program. Dues dollars will continue to go into the special reserve to be used only on National Council authority when deemed necessary as the result of emergencies now unpredictable. Let us make the slogan, EVERY PI KAPP AN ACTIVE MAN, a reality!

If you expec-to-rate as an American , do it on the back of a defense stamp. 5

Under Jhe Studenl6 clamp B'~ DR. WILL E. EDINGTON, Upsilon Chairman of Scholarship Committee


S never before in the history of the world has there been such a demand for the trained man and the skilled worker. The man who knows something well and can put it to use is at a premium. The greatest service any young man can render our country is to prove efficient in whatever he undertakes. And as never before our scholarship motto, "Knowledge Conquers," takes on a new significance in this world of strife. Pi Kappa Phi has long recognized the fundamental importance of effective scholarship and on each Founders' Day recognizes its outstanding Scholars. The fifteenth annual group, the Pi Kappa Phi Scholars of 1941, are now introduced to our whole membership. Brother Paul J. Barringer, Jr., now a senior at Duke University, is recognized as an outstanding leader on that campus, for he was elected to the Red Friars as one of the seven outstanding juniors chosen last year, and he is at present president of the Freshman Advisory Council. As a sophomore he was elected to Beta Omega Sigma, sophomore leadership fraternity, and he was recently made a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, national leadership fraternity. His principal campus activity has been with the Duke Chronicle, student newspaper, of which he was assistant managing editor last year and is now associate editor. He early showed his scholarship ability by being chosen to Phi Eta Sigma, freshman scholarship honorary, and he has maintained that high standard as is indicated by his recent election to Phi Beta Kappa. He has twice received a University tuition scholarship given to the five men .and women in his class having the highest scholarship. He holds membership in Pi Mu Epsilon and Sigma Pi Sigma, na.


tiona! mathematics and physics honoraries, respectively, and he is also a member of 9019, local junior scholastic honorary. Brother Barringer is at present Chaplain o-f Mu Chapter. Brother Frank M. Branner, Jr., now a senior in chemical engineering at Purdue, has one of the highest scholastic averages on that campus. He was elected to Tau Beta Pi na!io~al engineering honorary, in his JUmor year, and he is now secretary of the Purdue chapter of Phi Lambda Upsilon, national chemical engineering fraternity. He also holds membership in the Catalyst Club for chemical engineers. An excellent swimmer, he has been a member of the Purdue varsity team for two years, winning two major letters in that sport and membership in the "P" Men's Club and the Dolphin Club, national Swimming honorary. He has served Omega Chapter as its scholastic chairman. Brother James A. Johnson entered the University of Georgia in 1938 and since that time until the present his name has appeared on the Dean's List composed of the upper five per cent of the students at Georgia. He was elected to Phi Eta Sigma as a freshman, and last year he was chosen to both Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi. At present a student assistant in chemistry, he has been president of the Georgia chapter of Gamma Sigma Epsilon, chemistry fraternity, and be is a member of Xi Phi Xi, science honorary. He bas also been president of the Georgia chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon, national mathematics fraternity. Brother Johnson holds membership in the International Relations Club and the Chotography Club, and at present he is secretary of the Phi Kappa literary society. He has also found time for other activities. He was a member of the

W. ROBERT AMICK, National Historian race between the winners of the last two years, namely Purdue's Omegalite and the Upsilon Ups from Illinois, with former winning by a nose. The factors which brought the chapter publication trophy to Omega

for the 1941-42 school year might be summed up as follows: The paper used was perhaps of a little better quality than that used in other publications. A clearer job of printing made the Omegalite a little easier to read. There was evidence that the editor had paid just a little more attention to details. The Upsilon Ups might be slightly criticized on such details as the lack of people in a football stadium picture, the absence of men in a living room scene, etc. The Omegalite upheld the policy of 9

making the back page of each issue a complete alumni page under the heading "News From Brothers Everywhere." Some features of the Illinois publication were very good. The attractive masthead on each issue with the line giving the location of the chapter provides an example. Each of their isSjles contained two or more pictures. Always a good feature, the use of cuts enabled the editor to establish a record for generally attractive layouts. There was little to choose from in the makeup of these two publications. The general form of pages, intelligent use of heads, boxes and careful placing of feature articles made them both outstanding. Chapter publications need to follow certain general rules. Their articles should be short and, if possible, complete on a given page. While the publication should not be crowded, every inch of space should be utilized. The Omegalite and the Upsilon Ups show conclusively that considerable time has been spent in working up material and developing attractive layouts. I am sure that a considerable amount of the credit for the former belongs to Omega's Editor Bob Swaim, and it might be interesting to you to know that Bob is now working on the Purdue Exponent editorial staff for the fourth year where he bas undoubtedly picked up many valuable pointers. Praise for a job well done goes also to Clark Fishel and Jack Caldwell, pen holders for the Upsilon Ups. This story cannot be concluded without a word about other chapter publications. The Epsilonian, published by the boys at Davidson, was right up in the money this year . Had they had a third issue they would have to have been given most serious consideration. Their paper was attractive, well edited, and contained a nice variety of pictures and stories. Nice going, Brother Plunkett. The Alpha Zeta News from Oregon State, away out there in that country which is experiencing black-outs, was very neat, but its news lacked color, and it was short on alumni news. Although not bad in either of these respects, the News did not "pack the punch" it could have. I admire the very attractive h o u s e which the Alpha Zeta boys pictured 10

in their March issue, and appreciate their pride in it. The Alpha Musings came through with three issues but changed the size on one. More imagination is needed in the use of pictures boxes headings, etc., to give this paper reai " reader appeal. " The Dusak, a neat little publication from Alpha Upsilon, could use more pictures, more imaginative makeup, a greater variety of news. Too much space is devoted to names and addresses. If this information is needed by the alumni , would it not be possible to have the names printed or mimeographed separately and inserted in the publication? Because of our ruling that only publications with two or more issues could be considered for the top placings, The Rhddian published at Washington and Lee, ended up near the bottom, but the one issue published was a dandy. Printed on a good quality of paper, they presented an excellent picture of their very attractive fraternity home, and showed real ability in makeup and choice of a nice variety of news concerning both undergraduates and alumni.


The Alota from Auburn, . n ed a good amount of alurnnt but fell down in makeup. pt 3 The Alpha Taux, a mimeogr b publication, was very well _donf15, had difficulty com?eting wtth ual: • printed clearly on higherthqte' 3 paper.

while we take this opportunity to pass it on, in part, to you. "The STAR AND LAMP just arrived and being interested in Ben's friends as well as Ben, I looked it over. Needless to say I was thrilled to find his picture on page 21. Mothers who have boys in service will understand." Mrs. Smith then gave us the service addresses of Brothers Bob Crowell, Ed Hughes, Vincent Stacy and Ben, all of Chi and continued , "May I tell you a little about my boys." "They are pals, were in football together all through high school. Where you saw one, you saw all, and they waited until all were graduated and entered Stetson U. together. They joined the Fraternity together, played football together again, had adjoining rooms in the house, were inseparable for three more years. I was living near DeLand most of the time, so that's why I call them my boys. In all mv experience I have never seen such wonderful friendship . "Bob was injured in football in high school and when they went to college the others looked after him.

P. S.- MY KNITTING'S GONE TO HELL Back at Purdue a gang of seniors once took up the fad of knitting skull caps. The color scheme didn't matter, so long as they were "loud. " One of those fellows was Archon Bill Glenny of Omega. The above postscript was affixed to Bill 's latest letter, received just before Christmas from a northern camp where he was serving as a lieutenant. One of those coincidental meetings fraternity men often have made up a part of his very interesting story. Perhaps you'll enjoy it, too. Bill wrote, "Have been laid up in the hospital about a week . . . and the other night an officer was injured driving up here from the South. He is a southerner and not used to driving on ice and snow, so after a tangle on the highway, was brought in and deposited in the room next to mine. You know me. I got to snooping around and learned that he is Lieut. Carlisle King, Zeta '31. He was delighted to read my STAR AND LAMPsaid he hadn't seen one for some time . . ." And so it goes, " My knitting's gone to hell! "

. .. AND ALSO AM A FATHER The Crocker "twins" of Iota were always tough to tell apart. Was it Doug or Joe that liked those stubby· hair cuts? Iotans will be interested in a letter received in C. 0. not long ago from Doug. He wrote: "Today is Founders' Day. Lots of water has passed under the bridge since I saw you last ... Have been shifted around the country a lot and met lots of Pi Kapps. And there is always that certain bond between us . . . It is a very nice feeling . . . Enclosed is my alumni questionnaire. Notice I have taken a wife and also am a father . . . Fraternally (Ensign) Doug Crocker, Archo~ Iota '38."

WE'LL SEE YOU A. H. "Just a note to let you all know that three Pi Kapps were 'in the army now' in ........................... ..........................., .... ......................... Islands. Out of about eight officers at our mess table we 'discovered' each other. Certainly enjoyed finding good Pi Kapps in this remote spot. 13

"Brothers Gay Piercy (Alpha Upsilon), H. K. Merker (Epsilon) and myself extend our best wishes and we'll see you A. H. (after Hitler) . . . Fraternally, Joe Commander, Jr., Beta '38."


SHADES OF THE SUPREME CHAPTER OF 1912 Those Pi Kapps who remember the fifth national convention of the fraternity held in Wilmington , N. C. in 1912 will not forget delegate Dave Hardy, Gamma. There are many of us who would have enjoyed reading the following in the November 7 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle: "At ........................................ , Alaska an 11 -gun salute was fired in honor of San Francisco's David P. Hardy, former deputy superintendent of schools. "Hardy, called into active duty last year as a Colonel of the National Guard, was elevated to the rank of Brigadier General . . . He has been made coast defense officer on the general staff of the Alaska defense command .. . " The 51-year-old general is a graduate of the University of California, where he played on the university football team for three years and was a member of the crew for four years. During World War I he served as a captain at the Coast Artillery school, Fort Monroe, Va., where he was company commander and gunnery instructor." Dave Hardy cqmes from a Pi Kapp family . His brother Herb, also a member of Gamma, holds the rank of major in the regular army, and Charles E. Hardy, Gamma, his son, is a cadet at the U. S. M. A. at West Point.

WICKHORST COACH Frank Wickhorst, Upsilon, is line coach of the University of California football team. He was one of the speakers at the weekly meeting of the Northern California Football Writers in San Francisco at the end of the 1941 season. Wickhorst was an all-American tackle at Annapolis. 14

Butts and his staff-J. B.



The smashing victory of 40 to 26 over Texas Christian University's foot ball team in the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day by the University of Geor gia's team was a personal triumph for a Pi Kappa Phi coach. Handicaps and accidents and setbacks that would have broken the hearts of less stal wart men, Coach Wallace Butts, Alpha Alpha, plugged away and brought a team, rated only sixth in the South eastern Conference in early Septem ber, to a blazing triumph at the end. And on that team was a Pi Kapp, Cliff Kimsey, Lambda, alternate cap tain. Here's the story of Brother Butts' trials and tribulations, and successes reprinted from the Georgia Alumn1 Record.

Whitworth , J. V. Sikes, Bill Hartman, Quinton Lumpkin, Howell Hollis, Forrest Towns, Elmer Lampe and Fitz Lutz-one needs to turn the page back to September. In September, football coaches of the Southeastern Conference, who are in a better position than even the sports writers to know the relative strength of the member teams, ranked Georgia sixth in a pre-season poll. This was befqre such outstanding athletes as Gus Letchas, Bill Gill, John Brown, Homer Passmore, Brooker Blanton , J . C. Miller and Lewis Woodruff were lost for the season. Then came the crippling injuries to George Poschner, broken arm ; Dick McPhee, an appendectomy, and Captain Heyward Allen, broken arm. 15

These breaks would have broken the heart of anything but a courageous team. Yet it only served as added incentive for a Georgia squad which often turned in more brilliant performances than the talent warranted. So impressive was the G e o r g i a team and the Georgia spirit against such tremendous odds that two national football ranking systems overlooked Mississippi State, the outheastern Conference champion , and placed Georgia first amOl1g teams of its league. There is a story somewhere wh en a team ranked no better than sixth can suffer one misfortune after another and still have enough courage to come through with the most impressive record of any Southeastern team. And that story can be found in the raw courage of the Bulldogs. Coach Wallace Butts often has praised his team for having more "intestinal fortitud e" than any team in the land. That is no small compliment. Coach Butts knows his team , collectively and individually. He knows what it takes to play football. Many of the Georgia players lack the speed which marks A-1 football players. Others have handicaps. But all possess the prime requisite. Illustrations are not needed, but who can forget the stirring rally of 14 points in the second half of the Mississippi game which enabled th e Georgia team to tie a truly fine Rebel team. There was no hint of surrender when Georgia was trailing by two touchdowns even though the team's kingpin-Frankie Sinkwich- was for below peak form clue to a broken jaw. Then there was the perfect play against Auburn which won the game, 7 to 0, in the final seconds of play. Some dismiss this as a "lucky break." Nothing could be more incorrect. Georgia and Auburn had fought for 59 minutes and 57 seconds without a score. Only three seconds remained to play. Georgia had experienced a disappointing afternoon. But the Bulldogs did not fold tent. Frank Sinkwich planted a bombshell. He threw a 50 yard pass which Lamar Davis caught only by a su16

preme effort. Davis outran the Auburn secondary for a touchdown. Headlines trumpeted the spectacular play by Sinkwich and Davis. But they were not alone. The failure of one Georgia lineman to carry out his blocking assignment would have let a charging Auburn tackler in on Sinkwich. The failure of the players who acted as decoys on the play would have made it easier for Davis to be covered. This might be misjudged as overemphasis of one play. But we contend it clearly demonstrates the spirit of the Georgia team. Too it shows the importance of team pl~y. Georgia has had ·team play and will continue to have team play so long as Wallace Butts guides the destinies of Georgia football. A winning team in any sport is certain to have individuals receiving more recognition than others. This is true of Frank Sinkwich, Georgia's first All-American in 10 years, who has been voted by the football players of major colleges as the most valuable football player in America.

Again a civilian, Hefner obtained a job as copilot with the United Air Lines in February, 1933. Based in Kansas City, he flew the Kansas City to Dallas, and Kansas City to Chicago runs. In 1934, after the cancellation of the air-mail contracts, Braniff Airways took over this section of the United's routes. United was unable to absorb all the pilots on their remaining divisions, so Hefner worked in their traffic department for a while before returning to the Army for several months' duty. In May, 1935, he started with American Airlines as a copilot. Living in Fort Worth, he worked the Fort Worth-Nashville run for a year. Then be moved to Memphis and flew between that city and New York for three years. In June, 1939, he bid in the captaincy of a New York-Cleveland run. In June, 1940, Hefner won the more profitable New York to Nashville rnute. The regular steps of Hefner's rise through the ranks were: 1. Copilot, or first officer. Air lines now require 1000 hours' flying time -some of it on heavy, multimotored equipment-of applicants. Average age of starting copilots is twentyeight. Formerly, half of them came from Army, Navy or Marine Corps training schools, half from a privateflying-school course plus barnstorming, map-making or crop-dusting ex-

perience. Now, with national-defense measures eliminating the service schools as a source of supply, air lines must depend upon commercial schools for new pilots. Air-line pilots have been placed in an Air Corps Reserve Pool and as yet are not being called into active duty with the armed forces. 2. First officer, qualified. After two years as first officer with the air line, after passing rigid flight tests, equipment, meteorological and radio exams, Hefner was qualified for a captaincy. 3. First officer, reserve captain. This ranking was given to Hefner after he had logged an additional 1500 hours of tran sport flying time. To achieve this rating usually requires at least three years. The reserve captain occasionally takes out trips as captain. 4. Captain. H efner, with average good fortune and one bad break- the air-mail-contract cancellations- earned his captaincy in six years. As his tenure lengthens, he will bid in the more desirable routes. Pilots prefer the Southern runs because a milder climate gives them more golf, their children more sun . The Future

One of the most surprising developments of transport aviation is that pilots no longer look upon piloting as a stepping stone to inside, executive positions. Most pilots now plan to spend their active working life in the cockpit. Med:cal research has indicated that pilots, are, today, as good at forty-five as they are at twenty. Experience and technical training are constantly becoming more valuable, the hair-trigger responses of youth less so. With the introduction of larger transports, most senior pilots will probably become executive officers, supervising the flight from th e cockpit, but doing little or none of the actual flying. Hefner and most of his fellow pilots expect to fly until they are over fifty, then retire. A few will probably take desk jobs, though experience has shown that pilots seldom enjoy inside work. With prevailing wage scales and an active flying-life expectancy of almost thirty years, any pilot who lives within his income should be able to retire when his days 17

R. 0. T. C. I NSTRUC10~

in the cockpit are over. Meanwhile, the Airline Pilots' Association is planning the institution of some sort of pilots' pension or retirement fund. None at present exists.


If you ask Hefner to name the most pleasant feature of his job he will tell you, without hesitation, that he likes being a pilot because flying is fun. Disadvantageous is the lack of any permanent roots. A pilot and h; s fami ly must move with the vacancies and do not buy a home until their preferred base is reached .

Question most often asked of a pilot: " Isn't jt tiresome to go over and over the same ro ute?" Hefn ~r 's answer: "Why, it's never the same route twice. The wi nds, the clouds, the atmospheric conditions are always different-every flight presents new and interesting problems. We never have a chance to get bored ."

BARNETT DIES "OVER THERE" The news of the death of Brother Cargill M . Barnett, Iota, "somewhere over seas," has been received in central office. He has been buried where he was stationed as a lieu tenant of Army Engineers. The communication to his father stated that death was not caused by enemy action. Brother Barn ett was born in Atlanta, Ga. on September 7, 1916. H e entered Georgia Tech in the fall of 1934 and was initiated into Iota Chapter on April 15 , 193 5. H e attended Tech for two years, compiling a record so excellent that his admission to the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1937 was accomplished without entrance examinations. He was a member of the freshman scholarship fraternity Phi Eta Sigma. His excellent record was continued at West Point where, not sati5fied with the activity of academic pursuits alone, he devoted time to many extra curricular interests. His most notable achievement in this latter field came in the fall of 1940 when he was manager of the Army football team.

lowing h is graduation from th e Military Academy and was stationed for several months with the Corps of E ngineers at Ft. Belvoir, Va. To his many friends he leaves a her itage of courageous accomplishment that is both inspiring and challenging. The fraternity extends its deepest sympathy to Mrs. Barnett and to his parents.

Two that t~go a similar meeting was held in Leesburg and, at Broth nne, the alumni chapter received its charter and Execu~~ Byron Herlong, Alpha Epsilon , was made archon. and al;ve Secretary Jack McCann spoke at that first meeting WeiJ as ~vho. ~vere there remember what an enlightening as 1'h' Insp1rmg affair it was. at this tear, as before, Pi Kapps attended services in a body Franke E eesburg Episcopal Church where Reverend Brother l'hen t · Pu_lly, Alpha Pi, delivered his morning se rmon . alurnn· he~ adJourned to beautiful Venetian Gardens where the Bro~ c apter had a wonderful barbeque prepared. the rn he~ "Moon" Underhill, District (6) Archon , called 0Utdo::bng t.o order after the group had consumed the fine long AI c~okmg and sung a few songs. Brother Sid Herit Was P a Epsilon, was to be master of ceremony, but ''Moon" re~retted that he was too ill to attend. Brother of silen fl!st spoke of our Founders and asked for a moment :\ndrewce In memory of our departed and beloved J;lrother Introdu Alexander Kroeg. Then the many alumm were PreSent ced for the benefit of the new men. Among those Barcus Were, from Leesburg, Brothers Byron Herlong, Harry and g' and Alfred Smith of Alpha Epsilon, Troy Hall, Bowie arry Cole, Chi, Frank Pully, Alpha Pi and Dr. Clyde Chi's 'gEta, Alpha Epsilon's Jimmy Oxford from Gainesville, E. W Marold Giffin, and (Doc) Carl Johnson, and Delta's · achen, were on hand from DeLand.

Archon Idus Wicker gave a brief account of Alph~ Epsilon activities for the year. After a report of the fme work being done in Gainesville, Archon John Kurtz .was asked to ummarize Chi's activities. Then it was unammously voted that we not only return for a Founders' Day celebratiOn ne:rt year but that these Leesburg meetings. be an annua l affair. Brother Herlong and his group were given a hearty vote Ol thanks for their cordial hospitality. Mrs. B. T . Rood, house mother at Alpha Epsilon and real mother to all the boys, was called upon to say a few words. In closing she mentioned her son, Brother George Rood, whom we all know and admire, saying that be was far away in tlie service of his country. It was later learn.ed that he is an ensign stationed in Hawaii. Remember, th1s was December 7. Brother Underhill closed the meeting with a short and inspiring talk on the slate of the Fraternity. o.ther things he told us "Pi Kappa Phi !s stronger to?ay, fmanc1ally and otherwise than it has been smce the day 1t was found ed in 1904. Sine~ before the Chicago Convention, tl~ere has been talk of merger, but thank heaven. today we don t even h~ve to think about it. Pi Kappa Ph1 needs no other frater~1ty -other fraternities need us. We are not the largest fraternity, neither are we the smallest, but we are a~ strong . as t~e strongest. The day will never come whe~ this fralerm.ty \~Ill have to give up its name, change its ntuals, or rehnqmsh its ideals. Men will never cease to be supremely. proud. of wearing over their hearts that diamond-s~aped pm bea ~mg the star and student's lamp, and they w!ll always consider it one of the greater privileges in life to be in the brotherhood of Pi Kappa Phi."

CHARLOTTE AND EPSILON JOIN IN CELEBRATION OF FOUNDERS' DAY By DoN DAVIDSON, Epsilon On Monday, December 8, 1941 Epsilon chapter at Davidson College entertained twenty-five alumni from the Charlotte Alumni Chapter to celebrate Founders' Day. The Davidson group prepared an elaborate buffet supper which was served in the Chapter House. Geddie Herring, archon of Epsilon, presided over the affair with grace and polish. Mac McCann, Executive Secretary, attended this meeting which was of peculiar interest in that it followed so soon the United States' declaration of war on the Axis. Despite the recognized seriousness of the day's events, drug from the very bowels of hell itself, Secretary McCann was well impressed by the intelligent optimism manifested by the brothers assembled in Davidson to honor the founding of Pi Kappa Phi. . Frank Sims, of Charlotte, delivered the address of the evening. He discussed the place of our order in this time of great international stress, bringing out its part both within and without our country. From these points, Brother Sims branched into a timely discussion of national affairs. Brother Dick Young, Editor of the STAR AND LAMP, stirred the group with his appropriate rectial of our fraternity's history. Brother Young is particularly able to talk on Pi Kappa Phi because of hi s intimate knowledge of many of the Frate rnity's great personalities. Frank Kuhn, president of the Charlotte Alumni Chapter, made a brief talk which concluded the meeting.

"The Weeks" Go By For Mu Mu wishes to announce the pledging of the following transfer students: Owen Johnson, Attleboro, Mass., and Mac Hyman, Cordele, Ga., son of T . V. Hyman, Iota. We have bad two very successful open houses for freshmen preliminary to ru sh week which, at Duke, does not come until the first part of the second semester. The Blue Devils' very successful team this year was indebted to Brother Word "Lover" Clark who, as head cheer leader, aroused the cheering section to frenzy heretofore unknown to Duke. The campus, Pi Kapps in particular, went wild at the announcement of the invitation to the Rose Bowl. The next week the campus went wild at the announcement of the war. And the week after that the campus went wild at the announcement that if Duke couldn't go to the Rose Bowl, the Rose Bowl would come to Duke. A wonderful time was had by all. Founders' Day was celebrated in formal meeting. Brother Borland, our adviser, and Brother Blackburn, of the faculty, were present and made short talks concerning the probable effect of the war on the fraternity, the chapter and the individual members. At this meeting Brother Paul Barringer, Jr. was awa rded Pi Kappa Phi Scholarship Award, the second such award for Mu members in two years. Our annual Christmas party was highly successful , an exchange of presents following a very satisfying barbecue. - Dudley Moylan, Historian.

"Success" Says Omicron Omicron, for the third yea r in succession had the privilege of opening the University of Alabama's social sesason. Our annu al dance was held October 3, two weeks following one of the most successful rush weeks in our history. T wenty-nine men were pledged, which incidentally was the largest number pledged by any one fraternity on our campus. In addition to being Omicron's largest, this pledge class, shows real prospects. On October 12, seven men were initiated . They are: Ernest Y01:ng, Gadsden, Ala.; Jack Brock and Ben Brock of New Brockton, Ala.; Alfred Holston, Akron, Ala.; Henry Leslie, Troy, Ala.; Joe Ed Hearn, Albertville, Ala.; and Max Gilmer of Birmingham. This raised the active roll to twenty-one and gave Omicron a total active-pledge membership of fifty. Omicron boasts many outstanding Alabama students. Charles Talbot is president of the Association of the School of Commerce <1nd recently led the annual Commerce Ball. Henry Leslie is captain of Alabama's famed "Million Dollar Band." Lister Brunson is editor of the Corolla, campus yea rbook. In add ition the October 9 elections brought the chapter five class presidencies and one vice-presidency . Founders' Day was celebrated December 10 with a banquet and dance which also honored the original founders of Omicron . Of the eight men who found ed th e chapter in 1917, five were present, Dr.' C. J . Colquitt, G. H . Stacy, H. F. Burchfield, J, M . Ward, and Joe Havis. Brother Patrick Driver, present archon, presided , and introduced Dr. Colquitt who, in turn, introduced the other founders and spoke briefly of the founding of our chapter, of its progress and its future. Also present were our former housemother, Mrs. C. T . Fitzpatrick, "Mother Fitz," and our present housemother, Mrs. Mable Wolford. Sixty-five


actives, pledges, and gue3ts were served. The house was decorated in fraternity color; and red roses adorned the tables. Omicron is doubly proud this year to have as members two Pi Kapp so ns. George Stacy, so n of G. A. Stacy, one of our founders, is president of this year's pledge class, and Joe Starnes, Jr., son of Congressman Joe Starnes, was pledged last year and is now an active. - Joe Ed Hearn, Historian.

Rho Keeps Rowing Several alumni were welcomed back by Rho chapter for our homecoming celebration. Brothers Bob Gregerso n and Alex Thomso n and their charming wives joined Pat Searfoss, E. B. Rannels Jr. and John Hamlet to be with us for the week-end. Chapter members were also pleased to see Bob Vandervoort as he stopped to say goodbye before leaving for Trinidad and to have with us Brother Edward Rosborough, number 16 on the roll of Rho, who is now chief auditor for the Mason-Dixon Truck Line and resides in Kingsport, Tenn . Ken Van de Water, newly appointed ensign in the perso nnel department of the avy, drops in once in a while, and 145 pound va rsity wrestler, George Mcinerny, writes from the Army Air Corps that he is getting along very well. Representatives from Rho in campus activities are numerous.

Sigma Celebrates Founders' Day was celebrated at a dinner dance at the Hotel Columbia on December 10 with immediate past archon Ed Parler of Cheraw acting as toastmaster. Many alumni joined the und ergrad uates to hear Brother Fred G. Swaffield of Columbia, the principal spea ker , on an occasion made more significa nt th an ever by the events of December 7.

There are ten team in the league, but the Jines of battle are drawn with these two fighting it out.

Chi Chapter Reporting As Chi Chapter gets ready to swing into the second half of the school yea r, we look with some satisfaction upon our activities thus far . The real Pi Kappa Phi spirit is stronger th an it has been in some time. The men are highspirited and optimistic about the prospects of completing a very successful yea r, despite the difficulties of the times. 24

rushing program. The prospect for a large class of fi ne boys is excellent. Two Omegalites, David W. Moody and Hal Schweiger, have left to serve in the Navy and Army respectively. The general house index for the recent semester has risen considerably and undoubtedly will pu t Omega back in the upper division scholastically. Since three pins have put out in the last week, Omega appea rs also to be holding its usual high " sorority index." - Allan E. Reynolds, Historian.

Founders' Day celebration was held Sunday, December 7. The Leesburg, Fla. Alumni Chapter were hosts to the men of Alpha Epsilon and Chi. This was both a stimulating and memorable occasion. Archons Idus Wicker, Alpha Epsilon, and Johnny Kurtz, Chi, gave short and enlightening talks on their respective chapters. Distri ct Archon Amory Underhill Jed this very successful meeting and those attending to a man came away refreshed and rededicated to our fraternity's ideals and purposes. Alpha Epsi lon initiated a Christmas party this. year for the und erprivileged. We played hosts to twelve children and Brother Charlie Parker played Santa Claus. We commend this to our successors and hope it will not be permitted to go un attend ed next year. On the follo wing evening the entire chapter had its annual formal closed Christmas party, accom panied by all the traditions of this function of farewell, even to the breaking of wine glasses. - Bill Nea le, Histo rian.

Bob Pazina and Cole Rivers hold important junior class committee positions and Bob is chairman of the roundtable luncheon forums. Fall term social events included a pledge dance, pledge dinner fireside exchange dinner and serenade. The serenade was ~specially' outstanding and gives promise for interfraternity sing honors. Largest event schedu led for next term is the annual conclave of Alpha Delta, Gamma and Alpha Zeta, to be held in February. Meantime you should try studying in a "blackout." - Dick Ross, Historian.

THE AMERICAN'S CREED BELl EVE in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers a_re derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.


I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
