WHERE DO WE Young men are asking what to do about the war. Enlist? Get drafted? Study? With no official answers at hand, this is one analyst's report on the problem. Tom Smith is a dark, stocky youngster of twenty, rated in the upper quarter of the junior class at an old famou s and high-powered engineering college- ftrst-rate matenal. He happened to be with a couple of faculty instructors when news of Pearl Harbor started coming in , hot and hysterical , over the radio that Sunday afternoon. The fi.rst _wor?s started his Adam 's apple Jerkmg m his throat. The two instructors looked at each other, thinking fast in spite of the cataclysmic news. '

"Now listen, son," they said, and started telling him. In February, Dick Jones, a long, ham-handed kid from upper New York State, brought a knotty problem to his agricultural college. The folks had written him to drop school and come on home-spring was coming, hired help was unavailable and, without his help, the old man just couldn 't work to capacity. A year a nd a half more schooling, however, would make Dick a valuable asset to American agriculture as a promising expert on plant pathology. He had registered for selective service in February, but he knew deferment was probable, either as an agricultural student in good standing or as an indispensable worker on the

youngsters between seventeen and twenty-two, not to mention faculty edvi ~o ry committees, ~ersonnel managers of war-y;ork factories, treasurers of college fraternities, fiancees, professional sounder-offers on behalf of American education and journalists trying to find out what gives. Things are nowhere near so confusing for such youngsters in England , which, having been at war longer, has shaken down to a sounder logic in allocating young man power. The conscription age is down to nineteen and volunteer recruiting for His Majesty's armed forces has practically disappeared . Undergraduates at Oxford and Cambridge automatically tie in with war training, the more fit h eaded for fighting ·or war production, the less fit for home defense and civilian supply. So far , the United States has been operating on a system involving too many warring principles and practices for the boys' peace of mind, or that of those responsible for making the system work.

The Answer to a Paradox Age groups are out of line, to begin with. L ast December , th e Administration, backed by military authorities, asked Congress to lower the lia ble-for-service age from twentyone to eighteen. Congress would go no lower than twenty. The fact that hundreds of thousands of men were then still available in the original twenty-one to thirty-six range had something to do with that. Flocks of letters from voters emotionally reluctant to consider youngsters of eighteen old enough to fight proba bly had more. Yet all along the Navy has enlisted boys at seventeen and the Army at eighteen, with parents' consent. The Army Air Corps has recently lowered its initial age to eighteen and thrown out all formal educational requirements to boot. For, according to military men, youngsters in the eighteen to twenty range are particularly trainable for fighting. Physical vigor is at its peak, reflexes adjustable and heads teachable and, as yet, few home responsibilities or seriously steady girl friends exist to gnaw at their minds while in uniform . With Selective Service unable to tap the resources of that invaluable age group, the best fighting material in the nation would go unex4

ploited at peak condition unless oldstyle recruiting were still operating for the Navy, the Marines, the Coast Guard and the Army Air Corps. A good deal of bewilderment results. Many a late-teens youngster wonders why Selective Service t :!lls him over the radio to go on studying till called, while downtown on Main Street posters urge him to step right in and talk it over wi!h the Marines. Every time h e turns on the radio ·he hears recruiting propaganda . Every time he opens a magazine h e sees the pretty girl hovering round the man in uniform . Every headline reminds him that good guys are still taking it and dishing it out. If he takes Selective Service at its word , what should he do with the two or three year gap before Uncle Sam takes over his destinies? Carry on with college and study anthropology as planned? Or consciously aim his courses a~ war needs? Or mayb e get a war-factory job at good pay and save up m :mey for education after the war? Few of those questions w o u I d a rise if the ages of high school graduation and Selective Service liability coincided and Washington were telling all groups of likely fighting material where to do what. Some, however, would still appear. For instance: "I had planned to start a law course n ext year after two years in college. I'm registered with my local board. My eyes are good enough for study, not good enough for 1-A.

she worked a year toward that goal. Again in the summer of 1941 she took up her studies and became a co-ed in addition to being a mother, wife and homemaker. She attended both sessions of summer school and the three quarters of the regular school year. During the t we I v e months which were climaxed by her graduation with Jim, she completed !;eventy-three hours of credit whil e maintaining a home for her husband, Jim and his sister, Coy, a graduate of the University in the 1939 class. The Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry was conferred upon Brother Jim who was salutatorian

of his class. In addition to winning one of the nine Pi Kappa Phi Scholar Awards granted in 1941, be was a member of the Junior Cabinet for that year and president of the mathematics department honorary, Pi Mu Epsilon. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, Biftad Omicrcn Delta Kappa, Phi Et~ Sigma, Xi Phi Xi and the International Relations Club. He was grand alchemist of Gamma Sigma Epsilon, honor society for outstanding chemistry students. Mrs. Johnson has already begun work toward her master's degree and hopes to do defense work on the side. Jim's plans are uncertain. He is now employed by the Eastman Kodak Co. in Kingsport, Tenn ., and has been offered a scholarship for 1942-43 by the University of Wisconsin. Pi Kappa Phi salutes this mother and son team and wishes them every success in the days ahead. 5

Among the gallant defenders of the Philippines who lost their battle but won undying fame were two brothers of Pi Kappa Phi. A third brother, missing as the result of enemy action south of Java was an intrepid naval officer. The two, now officially regarded by the War Department as " missing in action" are Capt. W. L. Dixon , Jr ., of Charlotte, N. C., a member of Tau Chapter and Capt. James A. Seay, of Whitwell, Tenn., a member of Alpha Sigma Chapter. Missing in action south of J ava is Ensign Richard Judson Towill , of Batesburg, S. C., a member of Epsilon Chapter. The letter of the War Department to parents of the two brothers said that " it will consider the persons

fated Philippines in February, 1941. Ensign Towill is a native of Batesburg, S. C., having been born there October 5, 1917. He attended Batesburg-Leesville High School and after. graduating there served a year as a page in Congress after which he entered Davidson College where he was initiated by Epsilon Chapter. After several years at Davidson he transferred to the University of South Carolina from which he was graduated in 1940. In the summer of that year he became a mid=hipman and completed a training cruise on the USS Arkansas and training school on the Prairie State in New York Harbor. Upon completion of this training he was commissioned an Ensign D V (G) in the Naval Reserve on February 28, 1941. He requested duty with the Asiatic Fleet and was assigned to the USS . ..... ... ....... , which was based at

Hong Kong but which later came back to Manila before December 7, 1941. He was reported by the Navy Department on March 3, 1942 as missing as the result of enemy action south of Java. For a couple of summers between college terms Brother Towill worked with the United States Geodetic Survey in Arizona and for two summers worked with other college boys at the Hotel Castle Park in Michigan. He is the son of Mrs. John Bell Towill, Sr., and the late Mr. Towill. His mother is a hostess at one of the dormitories at Winthrop College, Rock Hill, S. C. He has two sisters, Mrs. F. B. Fitch, Jr. , of Charlotte, N. C. and Mrs. Ralph Shoemaker, of Maxwell Field, Ala. His brother, John Bell Towill, Rho, is a lieutenant (1. g.) on duty at the Navy Yard, Charleston, S. C.

Leading the field of Alumni Chapters in the payment of VOLUNTARY DUES is the 1941 leader, St. Matthews, S. C. Pushed by Columbus-Ft. Benning, Ga. last year, they are well out in front in '42. They have not yet equall ed their record of last year but claim they will. The men in St. Matthews claim no other alumni chapter can lick them for they follow the simple policy of making their returns 100% . The plan for receiving VOLUNTARY ALUMNI DUES became a year and a half old on June 30. What results have been obtained in the eighteen months since the idea was launched ? Where does your chapter stand in the lineup of contributors? Where do you stand? Did you send in your check in 1941? . . . 1942? Records have six months to run in this second year, so add your name to the list now. Help the record of your chapter in this plan to secure greater alumni participation in fraternity activities. Since the plan was introduced a total of 523 alumni have contributed $1127.14 in Voluntary Dues. On the basis of 7092 members whose addresses are known this is a record of 7.3 % . In 1941 $776.68 was received from 473 men, and average of $1.64 per man. The average has been stepped up through June of this year with 1 SO men sending in $2.33 per man for a total of $350.46. An even one hundred of the men contributing last year have taken part in this year 's program. You are asked to send in one dollar a year. Checks have ranged from $1.00 to $2 S.00, the first for the latter figure coming from the Army Air Corps' Captain Wilson ]. Seldon, Upsilon. 10

June 25, 1942. Mr. John H. McCann Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity 702 Grace American Bldg. Richmond, Va. Dear Jack: I believe that you once before accused the Columbus-Ft. Benning Alumni Chapter of being one of the most active and aggressive Alumni Chapters in the country. Your accusation was accepted by us with considerable pride, but, in times as momentous as these, it has sometimes taxed our energies to live up to that designation. We believe, however, that "we have done it again," and we throw forth a challenge to all other Alumni Chapters and Undergraduate Chapters, and we dare 路 them to accept this challenge. At our last monthly meeting on May 20th, it was voted unanimously that each member of our Chapter would contribute each month a minimum of a 25垄 Defense Stamp which would, in turn, be held- until a sufficient number of stamps are accumulated to Purchase a $25.00 Defense Bond in the name of the Fraternity. Thanks to very generous initial donations on the part of Brothers Kennon Matt, Emmett Cartledge and Park Brinson, it is the Pleasure of the Columbus-Ft. Benning Alumni Chapter to enclose a $25.00 Defense Bond, payable to the National Chapter, which we request be placed in the Endowment Fund. We are well on our way to the purchase of a second such bond at this time. If we could, through this action on our part, initiate a nation wide movement on the part of all other alumni and undergraduate members to make a similar contribution once each month, we will feel that we have contributed someting lasting and of immense benefit to the Fraternity, as well as performing a patriotic duty, without working a hardship upon any single individual. There is our challenge. we shall depend upon you to Pass it along to the rest of the Fraternity, and we hope that it Will be accepted in the same spirit in which it is tendered. Fraternally yours, (signed) W. M. Fambrough Archon Columbus-Ft. Benning Alumni Chapter

Where Do We Go From Here, Boys? (Continued from Page 4) going services. As things stand, volunteer recruiting is their only way to get men. Many of their higherups prefer it that way. The Army Air Corps knows that those eighteen and nin eteen year old boys are top material for pilot training, and makes a good case for its contention that the course of sprouts a pilot goes through is the equivalent of a good two years of college anyway. But it is easy to see why the Army ground forces, primarily dependent on Selective Service, are uttering anguished howls . True, veteran regular Army sergeants tell you that draftees in their units are smarter, better educated and more easily trained than peacetime vo-lunteers. But they would be better still if the Army in general didn 't have to wait two years longer than the other services for a crack at the new crops of boys. Present schemes for taking 90,000 candidates for Army commissions out of draftee ranks would sound even better if the sister services, grabby for unimpeachable reasons, hadn't been there first. In one way, the services' eagerness to get hold of top-drawer raw material has enabled boys in college or planning to go to college to comb:ne hooking up with the war and staying in the shadow of Old Main. Subject to stiff mental and physical requirements, such youngsters can sign up early in college for reserve commissions, usually getting reasonable assurance of at least two years on campus before being called into active service, sometimes an opportunity to complete their whole course for a degree. The Navy, for instance, with thousands of such potential officers already in this academic cold storage, is now planning to sign up 80,000 more college freshmen and sophomores between eighteen and twenty. After some special preparation courses on campus during cold storage, they will get channeled into active service according to how they pan out. Fifteen thousand of the best, headed for deck or engineering commissions, can stay to complete degrees. Twenty thousand more will go into Naval aviation at the end of their sophomore year. The rest are booked to leave college after their second year for training as apprentice 14

seamen, much as if they had volunteered straightaway. By virtue of the magic circle the Navy has drawn round them, all are clear of the Selective Service system. It will give the Navy a lot of good officers and a very fancy batch of seamen. But again, such arrangements--and roughly similar ones made by the Army Air Corps, Marines and Coast Guard-are tough on the mass army that the nation expects Selective Service to provide. No wonder the Army, bent on showing the nation 's youth that a commission can come out of waiting to be tapped by Selective Service, is loudly proclaiming that four fifths of its men training to be officers came out of selectee ranks. As of now, however, both college administrators and the boys themselves o '~::::1 exhibit an anything-butthe-draft attitude which has also been bad news for the Army. Navy and Army air branches run a dead heat in preference, Marines place, Coast Guards show, draft induction into the Army not placed. "We advise our youngsters to stay on while they can," said one key campus official back when the Navy was offering cold-storage commissions in draft ages. "When we figure their local draft boards are getting close to them , we try to get them reserve commissions in the Navy or something." The boys' uneasiness about the draft is reflected in such questions as: "Aren 't chances of using what I know better if I enlist than if I wait to be called? " And thinking of instances they have heard of where two local boards decided matters differently on parallel cases of men applying for deferment: " Why can't they make local boards get together on what good grounds for deferment are?"

The Defense-Job Question The first is gradually being answered by the boys' discoveries that drafted men they know occasionally trickle home on leave from officer-training schools or with bars already on their shoulders. The second is insoluble. The Selective Service Law purposely leaves wide discretion to local boards. Every now · and again there is a weird decision for the boys to gossip about. Much of the gossip, however, say both Selec-

tive Service officials and col!ege a~f ministrators, is the old busmess ·re remembering only when the um~'ti· boots one. In general, colleges te·fyfy, local boards are doing a grati tes ingly intelligent job.

Sums involved are also still Ptob lnite, although the total will oo0 ~bly be nowhere near the $200,j Of t'h OQ that John Studebaker, head nati e Office of Education, says the I Pur on could well afford for such a I Pose C · teco oll~ges are all for it. It amply techg~lzes the war-important role of aflo nlcal courses and it helps keep techa~ those universities that have in ttcal departments. For, except e~cl h~ straightforward situation of ellle Ustvely technical colleges, the war on rgency has put higher education leveral kinds of spots. ' Sohe college world 's first response nar Und as far as it went- was the bea~~n-wide acceleration program, slltn ng down heavily on expanded eou tner schools, so most students 1 lhre d finish four-year courses in err e Years. Here and there appear theorts to align arts curricula with j ect War-l ists of courses recommendas~~ preparation for fighting, such East e Political History of the Near ~na] a~d A Seminar in Propaganda Ys1s, mingled with th e mathe-












matics and write- concise- English courses that are more obvious ways to help prepare kids for commissions. The boys snort over those lists as much as some of their academic superiors. "What they did here," one faculty member very close to students told me, "was take a standard course in American history, stir in a little corresponding European history, put some icing on top and call it Military Tactics I." Brighter administrators train their sights steadily on subordinating the college to the general war effort. If war means that colleges must become either technical-training schools or mere real estate as lifeless as automobile showrooms, it's all right by them. Unless the war is won, they figure, colleges as we know them won't survive anyway. When a boy at such an institution gets the itch to volunteer, the dean 's reaction depends on strictly individual issues. "As it happened, our volunteers so far have been boys who weren't too well adjusted to college anyway," said a smart young college president. " I didn 't exactly encourage them to go ahead, but they didn't get much discouragement. Never mind the tuition, they'll prove more in uniform. And we do our best to play square with the boys' local boards. When a student asks us to take up his case with his local board, like as not we'll write, 'Go ahead and take him, for all of us ; there isn 't that much point in his keeping on with education.' " Many a local-board chairman devoutly wishes that such attitudes were more widely spread among the college officials he has been dealing with. Expansion of ROTC facilities in this war, paralleling last war 's SATC, is unlikely, you hear, because the Army just hasn 't got officers or equipment to spare from draftee training. Some colleges, however, go well beyond an acceleration program . in efforts to line up solidly behind the war effort. Minnesota's Carleton College, for instance, is bloss~m­ ing out with a high-powered flymg corps, including two thirds of the male students, with Navy, Army and Marines peacefully collaborating on intensive training of future fliers on a reserve-commission basis in college. Civilian pilot training, which goes a long way to ready youngsters for

military wings, is being boosted on other campuses. Harvard and Dartmouth students are the nucleus of a Volunteer Land Corps, which sends below-draft or draft-deferred students out on the land as amateur farm hands at a minimum wage of twentyone dollars a month and keep, to bat for the farm hands that. New Hampshire and Vermont farmers can't hire these days. In the Middle West county agents and high school principals are helping organize other such groups. In the strictly technical field the Stevens Institute of Technology at Hoboken, New Jersey, has practically thrown normal procedure into the Hudson River in the interests of top war production. Instead of just eliminating vacations, Stevens has gone on a three-semester basis, seventeen weeks the semester, with instruction so foreshortened that a hard-working youth can get a degree in three years of two semesters a year. The third semester he spends in a real job at full pay on actual war production in one of the big industrial plants with which the college has close placement relations. Three boys rotate one job among them during the year to solve the break-in problem after the first twelve months. This strenuous application of the well-known Antioch College system of sandwiching real work in between chunks of study is aimed at maintaining Stevens' mass production of war-industry engineers at the same time that it enables youngsters to get in tangible licks for war production with their own hands. It will graduate the boys with invaluable experience of actual factory conditions in advance of getting permanent jobs, help them answer the question, "Why aren't you doing something concrete for the war, instead of sprawling in classrooms? " provide ample financing for boys who formerly needed summer-vacation earnings, and sound gilt-edged to any local draft boards inclined to get out of line. The only disadvantage the college administration can ~ee is that it may kill the faculty. To reduce that load, they plan to use the smartest juniors and seniors as student instructors in elementary courses during their work semesters, as work equivalent to the others' factory jobs. Many other educators regard the whole scheme 15

dubiously as tending to extinguish the general-education aspect of college. "We've got to make up our minds, " says one eminent college president, " whether we are an educational institution or a technician factory. The war won't last forever. To deny any but the most direct technical ·knowledge to the present college generation on account of the war is to present the postwar world with four or five years' worth of relatively ignorant young men." The comment has point. But Stevens' hardy youngsters are taking to the arrangement without any more misgivings than lie in a realization they are all going to have to work like billy-o. And it looks as if enrollment would be a third higher this fall .· The late-April formation of a War Man Power Commission, containing representatives of government, armed forces, labor, industry, and so on, to supervise allocation of man power among agriculture, industry and, to some extent, Selective Service, may start clarity dawning in this confusion. At this writing, the commission's powers are still hazy and contain nothing implying that voluntary recruiting will necessarily be stopped or that the beginning draft age will be lowered to the logical mark of eighteen. But the underlying ideato start removing the catch-as-catchcan elements from the situation- has everything to recommend it. For months Selective S e r v i c e spokesmen have been plaintively maldng such statements as: " It would be the part of wisdom to let the orderly working of the Selective Service System determine when a man should leave the farm , or factory, or business, or college to take his place in the armed forces." Granted both the principle of conscription and the extent of the emergency, that is a marvelously understated conclusion. Very likely some will grumble if over-all application of the Selective Service principle to all fighting ages takes practically all option out of their hands. Very likely there would be poignant protests from the seagoing services, which are so closely wedded to the volunteer-recruiting principle as to liberty blues. On 16

balance, however, Tom, Dick and Harry will be better off as individuals if such a step is made. It will not only take option out of th eir hands, it will also take most of the resulting confusions off their minds.

This is called a scientific age, at least from a material point of view, and our major problems and undertakings are comprehensive in their scope. The digging of the Panama Canal was not merely a problem of blasting and removing rock and soil. but one of health, sanitation, and proper food, water, and living facilities, and not until the knowledge along these lines was acquired and applied was it possible to complete the Canal. And any major modern task demands th e pooling and use of every bit of possible knowledg~ and information that will help in its completion. Also a continual study must be made of the problem as its solution progresses. We are at war-a tremendous task as we see it of preserving our free institutions. There was a time when the outraged citizens could seize their pitchforks and squirrel rifles and go forth to right wrong:;. and they could live off the land as they proceeded. Battles were local affairs and only the immediate combatants suffered

physical contact and injury. But the radio, automobile and airplane have changed all that. Now every man woman and child is a combatant, and the women literally fight shoulder to shoulder with the men. The whole nation is potentially a battlefield and . . are won or lost in the' facvtctones tories and mills, and mines and farms and in the laboratories and clas~ rooms. Ideas and slogans have become powerful weapons. Applied knowledge is paramount. Who can say who is most important: the engineer, chemist, physicist, mathematician, physician, agriculturist, farmer, transportation worker, skilled mechanic, oil-worker, inventor bacteriologist, psychologist, soldie;, sailor, teacher, not to mention the forces involving morale: the preacher radio announcer and commentator' statesman, and the woman in th~ home? Each is in this war to the limit whether he or she will or not. But one must not overlook the future. In due time physical exhaustion, shattered morale, and recognition of the futility of it all, will 17

bring an end to the physical and material warfare, and a time known as the period of reconstruction will set in. Reconstruction for what? The First World War, we thought, was a war to end wars, but the reconstruction period that followed was characterized by greed, hatred and preparation for the present struggle. In other words the war continued in that subtle and more dangerous form known as social, racial, and economic competition. We now see it clearly and as now the tasks of this physical war are met by the pooling of all the known facts, so must the period of reconstruction be also treated. One of the fundamental facts is that the solution of the problems of the future lies in the training of our youth today to meet those problems. The idealism of youth and the realism of maturity must be correlated in the great workshops of ideas, our colleges. Many a youth physically or temperamentally unfitted for physical warfare may and will nevertheless play an important part in the period of reconstruction. The problems of social security, old age, rehabilitation of the maimed , racial, social and economic adjustment and equality, labor and capital, will be much more acute after the physical struggle has ended. Accordingly more emphasis must be placed on the training of our college students for the trying and dangerous period when reaction, bate, greed, and civic lethargy will tend again to become dominant. The groundwork for the victories and successes, as well as the defeats, of the future is now being laid in the class rooms. Scholarship, a term used to measure success in the acquiring of knowledge, must be recognized as fundamental , but scholarship must be a means to an end rather than a selfish and personal goal in itself. The scholarship of the future must be practical and realistic, and every student now privileged to attend a university or college, should insist that his training be comprehensive and vital.

The Philip Morris and Company Award It now appears probable that the Philip Morris and Company Award will be available for the year 19421943 . This Award was made in 1939-1940 and 1940-1941 but w:ts 18

not made last year. It represents a stipend of $250 given by Philip Morris and Company to Pi Kappa Phi which the Supreme Council of our fraternity has ruled shall be used in the furtherance of graduate study of some Pi Kappa Phi Scholar. Accordingly any Pi Kappa Phi Scholar who plans to do graduate study next year is eligible to make application for this Award. All applications should be in the hands of the Chairman of the Scholarship Committee not later than August 15 so that if the Award becomes available, th '.! successful applicant may be so informed by September 1. Applicants are expected to state clearly their purpose in graduate study and to outline so far as is possible their projected plan of study. The Award is payable in two equal amounts on or about September 1 and January 1. The recipient is expected to make a progress report toward the close of the school year which will be suitable for publication in THE STAR AND LAMP.

Florida Moves Ahead

Alpha Epsilon colors flew high during a military ball weekend that brought three dances with Sunny Durham and his orchestra. The house looked almost like a sorority house with Pi Kapps and their dates enjoying a picnic and an early breakfast. Military ball week-end is known as the largest social function at the University. Our last socia l of the year, Spring Frolics, saw Alpha Epsilon as host for a tea dance, picnic and an early breakfast . Everyone reporting had a wonderful time . The newly elected officers for the coming semester of the 42-43 are: Bob Cummings, archon; Bill Neal, treasurer; Jack Carpenter, secretary; Alva (Bud) Anthony, historian; Hiram Tribble, chaplain; Stuart Lofberg, warden; and Morris Goodwin, steward. The chapter recently indu cted six men into Pi Kappa Phi. They are: Bob Gangl, Akron, Ohio; James Wilson Shaw, Mount Dora; Tecl Camp and Gregory Camp, Ormond Beach; James Peacock, Blountstown; and Cecil Costin. Mother's Day was a celebrated day at Alpha Epsilon. Most of our mothers were present. All attended church that morning and then returned to the hou se for a special dinner. Mothers were welcomed by Archon Bob Cummings, and Mrs. Carpenter most graciously responded for them . Charles Parker acted as toastmaster. Several selections of Pi Kapp songs were sung by a sextet consisting of Brothers T y lander, Tribble, Parker, Goodwin, McDonald, and Force. Rev. Sterling made a short talk about Mothers. To conclude the program, Henry Freeman presented each Mother with a necklace bearing the Pi Kapp crest upon it. The chapter house is open this summer for many of the brothers are attending summer school. Many activities have been planned for the summer term, and there will be a great interest taken in rushing. Alpha Epsilon is proud of her members serving Uncle Sam. This year we gave him eleven good men for his armed force s. Brothers Cox, Mundhcnk, White, Force, and Wicker received their commissions as second lieutenants at graduation. Other brothers already in the service include Frank Maloney , Bill Papy, Charles Parker, R. C. Edwards, Fred Devant, Jim McDonald, and Charles Pearce. We all feel that Uncle Sam, with the aid of these good brothers, will be able to slap the Axis just that much harder. B uD A:\'THONY, Historian.


New House For Alpha Delta

Biggest news around Alpha Delta de:~ls with our change of chapter houses. The present location on 22nd Avenue is being forsaken for a larger and much better situated house on 16th Avenue in the midst of Greek Row.

Snider amazed everyone with the rapidity in which he planted his pin. Receiving it Sunday morning, he showed up two hours later at the dinner held for the initiates to announce its transfer to the light of his life.

Not only are we sending our men to the services but we have started a victory garden which is already producing for the table. Lambda is on the march!


Speaking of marching, the path up to the altar has bef~ worn smooth by the brothers and there is no sign of a . ec up- they are still going. Lt. Green Keltner met Miss Ela'"e Daniels of Morrow only a few weeks ago. Brother Clarencd Vaughn ha s beaten down the path. Brother Linton Crawfor and Gloria Schwager pulled the wool over our eyes by keeP; ing their marriage a secret for over two month s. Broth~n John Head and Miss Jacqueline Murphy plan a wed din~/ .

ConF u allons to you Ward! of or some time there has been a decided need for a set han~hapter By-Laws. This undertaking has fall en into th e We 5 of Archon Setzer and "Mutt" Gilbert. Incidentally as Wou!d appreciate a copy of By-Laws from any chapters Ra g~•de in making ours. sib/shmg and pledge activities have been made the responas ••ty. of a membership committee with Brother Gilbert in Jha•rman. Since new students now come into the school ava'1Iune, much of our usual rushing and contact tim e is not to able. Through alumni and activities we have been able iet a large number of excellent ru shees. Pasthe chapter has enjoyed many socia l fea tures during the ha t~ rm . The highlight of the season was one of the fin est _ndes ever had. Finals found the entire chapter busy ne\a nmg up the house and grounds. The house looked like v and the grounds like a different place after everyone Wh


had finished. Even the front of the house was scrubbed with soap and water by Lem and "Mutt." Believe me, a fin e time was had by all during the dances. Rushing since the initiation has netted us three outstanding pledges. They are: Ed Padgett of Raleigh, and WinstonSalem, N. C., Bud Bristol of East Orange, N. ]., and Billy Blow of New Bern , N. C. This summ er's work will add several more to the pledge class. A few boys have just to sign the cards when they return to school. Our chapter house will be full this summer, and all in all, I think we are going to like operating in this season . This summer finds Roy Coggin in the army helping to keep the Air Corps intact. Ward Bushee will spend the summer at Nantucket Island, Mass., at a beach resort. We all wish we were in his shoes. Some people have all the luck! · Tau wishes each of yo u success in the coming month s, whatever yo u are doing--on the farm , in the office, in the factory, or in the defense of our beloved Country.
