, , , • • • • UBBER is where you find it. To the average layman the rubber forest used to be the local garage or tire shop, the department store or the five and ten depending on whether we wanted tires, bath mats or bathing caps. Rubber may still be where you find it-but try and get it. The problem, which became acute in the summer of 1941 when gasoline rationing was started on the eastern seaboard, has now attracted national attention. After much quarreling over the advantages of alcohol or oil for its synthetic production, the work of producing synthetic rubber was speeded up under a rubber czar. Even now we don 't know the answer to the rubber riddle although everybody is talking about rubber and for once realizing the difficulties of the lack of it. We all want facts and eagerly try to find out everything we can about rubber. Hearing that Brother Ed Clifford, of Alpha Theta, was engaged in the cultivation of guayule, one of two types of rubber producing plants, we asked him about his work. And he has given us some interesting facts regarding this most important plant. We are indebted to Brother Clifford and Mr. W. B. McCallum, chief botanist of the Intercontinental Rubber Co. of Salinas, Calif., for the many facts herewith presented as gleaned from an article written by Mr. McCallum for the INDIA RUBBER WORLD. Of the large number of plants that are known to produce rubber the actual commercial production is confined to essentially two, the H eve a Brasiliensis and the Parthenium argentatum, or guayule. The former, a large tree, had its origin in the valley of the Amazon and its tributaries in Brazil and has been transferred artificially to the ;sJands of the Far East where now some 8,942,000 acres are planted, with essen-



tially 8,000,000 acres in bearing. The total possible annual production, when all are in bearing, will be well over 3,500,000,000 pounds. The guayule, a native of northern Mexico, is a rather heavy, woody shrub and has contributed for many years up to 10,000,000 pounds of dry rubber per year. The rubber in H eve a is in the latex system and constitutes at any one time but a small fraction of 1% of the total weight of the tree; and in the guayule it is in all the living cells except the leaves, and in the better varieties amounts to 22 % of the dry weight of the plant. Although some previous attempts had been made and small amounts of rubber marketed. the guayule business was really established in 1904 as a result of the ingenious work of W. A. Lawrence in utilizing the pebble mill, with water, as the means of extracting the rubber from the shrub . The first factory was established in Torreon, Mexico, in 1904 with a capacity of 1,000,000 pounds of wet rubber a month. This factory continued in operation with various improvements until 1915 when the 150 individual pebble mills were replaced by long tube mills which permitted the much more , efficient system of continuous operation. A little later factories were built at Cedros and at Catorce, which have been in almost continuous operation since. Almost from the beginning the Intercontinental Rubber Co. looked forward toward replacing the diminishing supply of natural shrub with that grown on plantations. In 1911, I joined the company to continue the work so well started previously in 1908 by F. E. Lloyd. Shortly after this revolutionary disturbances in Mexico became so acute that the experimental fields at Cedros and elsewhere had to be abandoned. In the meantime the potential importance of the work was realized by

· ed the company, and I was authonz to salvage as much seed and other material as possible and start up again in the United States. This ~s done in 1912, 36 years after tr Henry Wickham got the first Hevea seeds out of Brazil and started gr~: ing rubber in the Far East. ready the world's rubber supply was beginning to shift from the wild ~0 cultivated sources, and we saW 111 guayule enormous possibilities. . To present the question of gro~ 10 g guayule in the United States JO ~ fair and logical way, mention m~ be made of the regions in which . e plants will grow successfully, the so~s for which they are best suited, t e yields of rubber per acre that will b~ produced in different locations, a~ the cost involved per pound of ru · ber. Unfortunately in the past year or two the whole subject has be~n written up rather voluminously 1 ~ the press by many people witbou. much regard to actual conditionS· consequently much misinformation has been published. k As already mentioned, the wor 1 was started in 1912 and after seyer~e years in learning how to ger~11n~e the seed, produce good plants w 1 nursery, gets a satisfactory stan? ~ these when transplanted to the fie and a good deal about the differen varieties, actual business operatio~s were begun at Valley Center, Sout; ern California, in' 1913. There we~ planted 300 acres of the general vard eties from the Mexican range and the task of working these over and selecting the better types was start~ : The soil at Valley Center was satJSe factory, and climatic conditions .w~~s very good; and in the better vanetJ r· excellent yields of rubber were seen 8 ed.

The plants grew well, but the tubber was slow in forming in the blants because of irrigation and also ecause the rains came in the sumIller and promoted plant growth just • 1Yhen the plants should be drying °Ut. The net result was that while a large tonnage of shrub was obtain1 ect, it was impossible under the conditions followed to get a high enough percentage of rubber in the plants to JU Shfy • the whole operation. Further work there undoubtedly l\lou)d have overcome most of the difficulties, but in th :! meantime there . had been put out a series of small Plantings of about an acre each in "~rious parts of California that had giVen an indication of the growth of · bthe plants and the formation of ru~­ er in various locations.

the plants, being larger and requiring more water, used the water up faster and ceased growing about July or early August, and by the time they were four years old they used up the moisture and ceased active growth early in July and had the rest of the season to produce rubber. By 1931 there had been set out about 8,000 acres of guayule in California, and the plants were growing well. A large factory for the extrac-

tion of the rubber had just started operations when the slump came and the price of rubber dropped to less than 3c a pound. Ultimately all of the shrub was milled, but extensive planting was discontinued except for purposes of improving both the quality and the yield of rubber and also for the continued object of determining means of running the whole operation at a very much lower cost p :!r pound of rubber . These efforts 7

have met with considerable success ; the percentage of rubber in the shrub has been slowly, but continuously raised ; the cost of nursery growing, planting in the field, and subsequent care of the plants has been greatly reduced. Contributing factors were improvements in machinery, the elimination of considerable work that was at first thought necessary, and the practice of more efficient methods throughout. When considering the amount of land available in the United States on which guayule will grow well , it does not seem an impossible task, or even an essentially difficult one, to produce within our own borders 25 % of our normal rubber needs. This would require, in general terms, 1,000,000 acres of land, 200,000 of which would be harvested and replanted each year. To maintain, as has been suggested in Congress, 45,000 acres of guayule would require, if in one piece, an area a little less than 8.7 miles square . Of course, no area even of that size could be found with all the land suitable for cultivation. As a matter of fact, it would probably be in units of 10,000 to 12,000 acres each, which would be ample for the continuous maintenance of one factory. Assuming the land to be fairly similar to that now used at the California experiment station, on this 45,000 acres, one fifth, or 9,000 acres, would be harvested and replanted each year, yielding essentially 14,850,000 pounds of rubber annually. However no estimate of the amount of land required to produce a given tonnage of shrub, or rubber, can even be approximated without knowing first the character of the land and the general climatic conditions, including particularly the amount and the period of the rainfall. In this respect guayule is no different from any other crop. At the experiment station in the Salinas Valley, on general upland soil, with no irrigation and a 14-inch annual rainfall, fiveyear-old plants yield 1,650 pounds of rubber per acre, and six-year-old plants, 2,160 pounds. These yields will be materially improved as the more recently selected varieties come into large acreages. Proceeding south the rainfall gradually decreases and with it the total growth of the shrub 8

so that, although the percentage of rubber in the shrub is a little higher, the total amount of rubber per acre gradually 路decreases. On much of this land, however, a reasonable amount of water has been developed in recent years which, if applied at the proper times, will very substantially increase the growth of the shrub without affecting seriously the total rubber formation. It is not possible to express in arbitrary terms the requirements such as the amount of rainfall, temperature, etc., because these are so interlocked with other conditions that they may be very effective in one place and quite insufficient in another. At the present location near Salinas the summer temperatures are cool, and the air, which is mostly off the ocean, is quite damp, and even with 10 to 12 inches annual rainfall a satisfactory growth is obtained. But over in the interior valleys with the vastly higher temperatures and lower humidity, it requires a rainfall fully SO % higher to obtain the same result. During a period of about ten years there have been established and maintained a series of 53 experimental stations of from one acre to five acres each, extending from southern Texas across to California and up to the Coast region and the San Joaquin and Sacramento valleys to Red Bluff. These stations were all carefully looked after and were dispensed with only after the final results from each had been obtained. Thus in that entire stretch of country it is known fairly accurately just what guayule will do in the various regions. The greatest amount of available land is in southern Texas, but it will require some years' work to overcome the difficulties incident to the summer rains and the susceptibility to root rot in the soil. Very substantial progress was made in both these lines, but the general depression in 1931 led to discontinuance of that work, and subsequent work has been of the nature above described. The same situation is true as to southern Arizona. In the coast country of California and in the interior valleys of that state the winter and spring rains with dry summers make conditions much more ideal, and there it has been thoroughly demonstrated what can be done.

UNDER THE STUDENTS LAMP Pi Kappa Phi Scholars for 1942


Chairman of Scholarship Committee




n路 ds lb ill


The Pi Kappa Phi Scholarship Program as now constituted was Planned in 1926 and put into operation in 192 7 with the election of two Pi Kappa Phi Scholars for 192 7. The Program called for high standards and a maximum of nine Scholars for any one year. The candidates tnust have second term junior or senior standing and be active members of an undergraduate chapter, and their scholarship records must attain a standard at least equivalent to that required for election to such organizations as Phi Beta Kappa or Tau Beta Pi. Extra-curricular activity and achievement are not to be considered in the election of the Pi 1\.appa Phi Scholar. This program has been carefully and strictly adhered to during the past fifteen years \vith the result that many of the Wearers of the Pi Kappa Phi Scholar~hip Pendant are becoming intellectual and civic leaders in their reSpective communities. Of course an these Scholars are subject to military service and doubtless many of them are already in the army or navy. OF PI



During most of the past fifteen years the number of candidates has been relatively large and the maximum of nine Scholars has been chosen. However, the year 1942 filled with uncertainties and interruptions, particularly among the very juniors and seniors who might be eligible, is not a normal year, with the result that the number of candidates has been small. Accordingly the number of Scholars chosen for this year is smaller for it was felt that the standard :nust be maintained out of respect for past Scholars and in fairness to past candidates who were not chosen. It is evident that scholarship is suffering its casualties along with every other form of good. Following are the names of the Pi Kappa Phi Scholars for 1942: Harold Nlartin Carter, Roanoke College; Kenneth S. Clendaniel, \Vashington and Lee University; Richard Vernon Grimes, Pennsylvania State College; ]. Dudley 1\1oylan, Duke University. On Founders' Day, December 10, these Scholars will be formally awarded the Pi Kappa Phi Scholarship Pendant and the Scholarship Certificate, and thus receive the highest honor that our fraternity bestows on an active undergraduate member. They will be the sixteenth group to be so honored and they will join a distinguished group of Pi Kappa Phi who are bringing honor and will continue to bring honor to our fraternity.

Edgar F. Lindgren, Jr.


The son of !\lr. and lVIrs. Edgar F. Lindgren of 578 Martina Drive, Atlanta, where his father is a well known business executive, Lindgren was graduated from North Fulton High School. He attended Georgia Tech , where he majored in Industrial Nlanagement, and was a member of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. Lindgren was recently transferred to an advanced base, where, on the successful completion of his flight training work, he will be commissioned an Ensign in Naval Avia. tion or a Second Lieutenant in Marine Corps Aviation.

There arc varying viewpoints on the purpose of the STAR ANo LAMP chapter letter and on what it should contain: Some tnaintain that it is written essentially for the alumm, that ~hrough this medium chapters have their best means of teJIIng their alumni of campus innovations and about wha_t Joe Smith class of '32 is now doing. Others feel the pnmary Value ~f these letter~ lies in their use as an informative medium through which undergraduates may exchange views with their fellows in other chapters and, in so doing, help each other to obtain a better rounded appreciation of undergraduate fraternity life throughout the nation. It is undoubtedly true that both views have merit. It is also true that chapter hi storian s often mi ss the boat by submitting -material that ha s little reader appeal to those outside immediate chapter circles. In this issue we are departing from the normal sty le of letters to bring undergraduates and alumni alike a composite view of our chapters and colleges in wartime. We sincerely thank the chapter archons, secretaries and historians who have contributed much of the factual informal contained here. We do not have a complete story to tell, for not all chapters have responded to our request for information . However, we believe that the picture drawn here will give each of you a fairly accurate basis for evaluating the overall chapter-college situation as it appeared at the end of October. At the outset it should be understood that your own campus situation may vary widely from those of other chapters. If, for example, your house will accommodate 45 men and you have 25 in it, you may not be in as good a fiscal position as the chapter which has nine men in a house with a capacity of ten. The sa me holds true for chapter membership. A normal chapter membership of 12 men at Wofford may comPare quite favorably with 30 at Georgia Tech. . Acceleration of co ll ege courses has brought many interestIng changes in fraternity chapters. Most notable fi scal change arising from this "speed-up" has taken the form of an added three months of income while fixed charges have remained on a nine month basis. The most significant change lies within the membership itself, where the average age of members and Pledges is dropping. As upper classmen leave the campus by reason of graduation, se rvice calls, industrial attractions and agricultura l needs at home, and as high school graduates enter college immediately upon completion of their high school Work we find official responsibilities of our chapters are being Placed in the hands of younger, less experienced men . This report shou ld not be undertaken without consideration of the service status of our undergraduates, but do not become lost in speculation of the possible resu!ts of a general ord~r calling up army and navy reserves. This report covers conditions as they were reported at the end of _October. To ~ttempt to predict what may happen tomorrow IS somewhat hke trying to guess the number of beans in the jar in the grocery store window. If you wish to try you are welcome to the opportunity. We prefer the policy of ~etti~g all of our houses in order today, doing our respective .Jo!Js w~ll, and tackling tomorrow's problems as they l!laten~hze . w1th t~e best brains and means available to the g1ven SituatiOn. TillS Policy is only prudent if we organize our valuable resources now, thus to be ready for any eventuali ty. Alpha Chapter brought ten members back to the College of Charleston campus. Rushing was delayed a few weeks, then completed quite successfuJly with ten excellent pledges. No report on College enroJlment is avai lable nor ca_n ';Ve ~ive service data on the men of Alpha. However, a ll md1cations Point to a sound organization under capable leadership. Beta Chapter at Presbyterian CoJlege did not operate during the summer. The college admitted a new freshl!lan class last June, but the fraternities refrained. ~rom ru~hi_ng these men until this fall because of summer m1htary trammg comtnitments of many of their members. Latest report showed OF




Beta with 19 members and pledges and rushing in full progress. Norma l pledging records seem destined to fall as the result of a record freshman class which has sent Presbyterian's enro!lment above norma l. Brother W. P. Jacobs, P. C. President, leads a very progressive administration. Total enrollment of 350 this fall compares with 280 last year. Male enrollment is up from 200 to 250. Most Beta men are in advanced R. 0. T. C. or otherwise deferred in military reserves. Secretary Heidt reports that approximately 80 per cent of the men hold reserve classifications. Gamma Chapter,. University of Ca li fornia, is our first war casualty. The emotiOnal strain of wartime operations hit hard on the Berkeley campus. Though dormant for the moment there is every prospect that Gamma will be back on the activ~ line when the war is over. Their finances were well handled and allowed the closing of doors without debt. Too much prai ~e cannot be ?iven to Brother Jim Hamilton, Chapter Adv1se_r, for the fm_e work he did in keeping the chapter operatiOns sound while chapter members was decimated. Delta Chapter at Furman University is another that did not operate during the summer. Enrollment figures are not yet avai lable but reports from the chapter indicate that their house is full and that 16 men were pledged during rush week this being _the best recor~ amo_ng t~e several f_ratcrnities on ca:npus. _Epsilon Chapter IS do_mg 1ts usual fme job at Davidson. Wtth 24 members and s1x pledges returning the chapter had set a goal of 20 pledges. Seldom has any chapter had a better organized rushing program. Under Brother Calh oun Hipp of Greenville, S. C., the rushing committee worked hard over the summer months, had recommendation s on some 80 ~en ~ early_ as August 10. That their efforts were productive. IS told 111 the repor~ ?f 21 new pledges in September. Davidso n enrollment IS hm1ted to 650 men and indications are that they had little difficulty in maintaining this quota this ye~r. ~any of the men of Epsilon are deferred through connectiOn w1th R. ~ - T. C. or army and navy reserves. Zeta Chapte r contmues to do a creditable job at Wofford College. This chapter should normally run from 12 to 18 men over the school year. When their report was received they had not yet completed rushing but had brought back ~i?~t me!Jlbers and four pledges. Three of the latter were 1mt1ated m early October so it appears that Zeta is numerically up to strength. Wofford enro llment is off from 500 to 400 students. The ~ollege has adopted additional war economics courses an_d has mcreased offerings in mathematics and physics. It has a _fme R. 0. T . C. unit and quotas in A. A. C., Marine and , Enlisted Reserves and in Navy V courses. Seven of Zetas men hold reserve ratings, three are under 18 years of age. Iota Ch ap~er. bas seen the enro llment of Georgia Tech fall off a b1t m face of a fairly general rise in technical school enrollments elsewhere. Some reason that this is due to an extent, to the poli~ical control that retiring Governo; Eugene Talmadge has wielded over the Georgia University System. In any event Tech has 150 less students than last year when enro llment was 2800. All courses have been adapted to the war effort, and. all students are required to 1 follow acce.erated programs which allow graduation in thre years. A~proximately 55 per cent of the student body i~ enrolled with some deferred service rating. Army and Navy R. 0. T. C., Navy V courses, A. A. C., Marine and Enlisted Reserves are all represented at Tech. Iota has operated throu.ghout th~ sum_mer, now has 28 members and 16 pledges, and IS opera.tmg w1th table and house filled to 80 per cent of capacity 111 face of a heavy membership of Atlanta men Twenty of. ~he . 44 men affiliated with the chapter hold reserve classifications. . L_ambda Chapter is o~ the comeback trai l after a rather difficult Y.ear ~t the Umversity of Georgia. The enrollment of the Umvers1ty has been affected by the war but more seri-


ously to da te by th e Talmadge po!itical contro l which led to its removal from the accredited rolls of all top- ra nking educational accrediting agencies. Tota l enrollment dropped from 2,978 in the fall of 1941 to 2,114 this fall. Male enrollment fell from 1,788 to 1.288 during the sa me period. Lambda operated its house during th e summer though chapte r meetings were not held . In mid-October the chapter had seven members and 26 pledges, 21 of the latter having been pledged since last June. Since Secretary Boynton's last report th e chapter has he!d an initiation which has effective ly bolstered its membership position. There are 22 men living in the house and 21 eating at the table . House and table capacity are respectively 26 and 30 men. The University is offering special war courses in mathematics and related subjects. Campus housing facilities are crowded since dormitory space has been turned over to Navy Pre-flight and Army Signal Schools. An excellent R. 0. T. C. unit is maintained . We find Lambda has 11 men with reserve classifications, one deferred , 16 not classified and five under 18 years of age. Mu Chapter continues to do well at Duke University with 26 members and five pledges. Since ru shing is deferred there is no basis for judging rushing results this year, but prospects are encouraging. Enrollment at the University was 2,637 in 1941, 2,547 in 1942. Male enro llment figures for the same periods was 1,763 and 1,662 . Dormitory space has been made available for an Army Finance School. Navy V courses, Marine and Enlisted Reserve quotas and training in C. P . T. arc available. Many courses of the University have been adapted to the war effort. A report on the 31 members and pledges of Mu shows 15 in the reserves and 16 not classified . Three initiates have bee n recorded this fall . Xi Chapt.e r at Roanoke College has witnessed a drop in college enro llm ent from 396 to 356 but find s the male enrollment (off from 250 to 220) still quite adequate. Last reports gave Xi 12 members and 24 pledges, nine men li ving in th e house and nine at the chapter table. Both house and tahle have a capacity of ten men. The pledging of 14 new men from the fall fre shman class lead a ll other chapters on campus. Nine men hold reserve classifications, four are deferred, one is classed 1-A and the remainder are not yet classified . The college has turned over much of its dormitory space to the C. P . T. program . Through a special War Council under the guidance of Chapter Adviser Curtis Dobbins Xi has its operations well in hand and is progressing at a rate well above normal. Omicron Chapter has given us no report from the Uni versity of Alabama. There are better than 25 members and possibly an equal number of pledges in school, but some housing and personnel problems exist to try the ingenuity of the officers. Pi Chapter, Oglethorpe University, was reported as a war casualty . We were informed that the four remaining members who had planned to return this fall had either enlisted or planned to do so. One man decided to remain . With alumni aid he conducted the initiation of one carryover pledge. L atest reports show that Pi's two members have now aligned four pledges beside them. The attitude of these lads is "we may be down, but we're sure not out!" Rho Chapter at Washington and Lee has not made a full report. W . & L.'s normal enrollment of 950 is off about 300 men . The number of freshmen is off considerably. Chapter Adviser Paxton writes that only four men were pledged and sta tes "pledge material was not and is not available.'' Of the 18 members who returned to the campus in the fall , 16 remain , two having gone into the arm y. The prospects for Rho are none too good. Sigma Chapter lead a ll the fraternities at the University of South Carolina in fall pledging, placing the white diamond on 17 of the 65 freshmen who pledged all campus chapters. University enrollment figures are not avai lable. Ten of Sigma's 32 members and pledges have reserve ratin gs, one is deferred, 12 are not classified and nine are under 18 years of age. No hou sing problems exist as the chapter continues to be quartered in a tenement section of the dormitories and ha s had little difficulty keeping its rooms fill ed . Tau Chapter ha s benefitted frcr.-~ the accelerated progra m at North Carolina State Colle~c. Cntifyi ng perso nnel gains


were made last spring, and chapter personne l strength has co ntinued to improve under competent leaden•. The 27 members and pledges have openings in var:ous service reserves and find their technical courses geared to war work. Five hold reserve ratings, two are deferred , 15 are not classified , one is listed as 1-A, and four are under 18. Co llege enrollment (a ll male) is greater than ever before, having increased over last year from 2,350 to 2,700. Upsilon Chapter, withstanding heavy losses, has come bac~ at the University of Illinois with 26 men. Two alumni stationed at nearby Chanute Field bring the total in house an.d at tab!e to 28. No enrollment figures are available, but 1t is evident from inquiries made on campus that the University has had seri ous losses. Reserve ratings are held by eight men, two are deferred, 14 not classified and one each are found in the 1-A and under 18 groups. Hou sing on the campus is at a premium due to assignment of dormitory facilities to the Navy and the heavy drain on normal housing in ChampaignUrbana by officer personnel of Chanute Field. Chi Chapter is once again taking the lead on the Stetson University Campus. Though other reserve branches arc open · to them, the 34 members and pledges of Chi seem to prefer to associate themselves with the Navy through its V courses. Chi, at University enro llment figures are not available. latest report, had 15 members and 19 pledges . Reserve ratings are held by 17 men, three are deferred, 12 not classified, one is listed as 1-A and one is under 18. Omega Chapter reported satisfactory summer ope rations at Purdue University and went into November with 29 mem bers and 28 pledges. The freshman and sophomore classes claim 35 of their 57 men . With graduation of nine seniors in December attention centers on the lowering average age of th e personnel. Recent action on the part of University authorities makes it possible for boys who have successfullY completed their junior years in high school in the upper brackets of their classes to enter Purdue as freshmen. A short, concentrated "bridging" course will carry them over the work they would normally cover in their senior year in hig!J school. Then they will launch upon co llege work and, tl successfu l, can be graduated in approximately three years. Thus we shall see boys of 15, 16 and 17 years of age soon treading from class to class on the West Lafayette campus. Omega's house is full and the table is running at capacity. Reserve ratings are held by 15 Omega men, nine arc deferred , 32 not classified, one listed as 1-A and none under 18. While University enrollment has suffered, the freshman class is one of the largest on record. All but the south section of th e Cary Hall dormitories has been taken over by the Navy. Alpha Delta Chapter has witnessed the Universi ty of Wash ington's enrollment drop from approximate ly 10,000 to 7,700 (male enrollment 6,000 to 3,500) since the fall of 1941. This has not prevented the chapter from rushing successfullY · Nine of their 23 members and pledges hold reserve ratings, one is deferred and the balance are not classified . The acute housing shortage in Seattle has aided in that it h~ S assured a full house and table . The morale of this chapter tS at one of its highest points since the 1932 -3 debacle that saw membership fall from an average of 40 to nine over one school year. All classes of reserve service opportunities are available at the University and it is expected that many more Alpha Dcltans will enlist in them as the draft age is lowered. Outsta nding aid is being given Washington fraternities by the University administration. Alpha Epsilon Chapter find s University of Florida enrollment off about 20 per cent to 2,800 men . At the sa me time the freshman class is one of the largest on record . These two factors, coupled with harder work on the part of undergraduate fraternity men, have lead to considerable pledging success on the part of a ll chanters. Latest reports from the campus show Alpha Epsilon with 25 members and 21 pledges, with 21 livi ng at the hou se and 38 eating at the table. Jt has been estimated that 50 per cent of the men at Florida hold Last available deferred classifications or rese rve ratings. fi~ures for us showed 10 reserves. three deferred, 28 not classifi ed and three under 18. To be initiated at Florida a o!edgc m•Jst have been in school at least one semester and have maintain ed a C average c r better in z t least thre ~-

fourths of a normal scholastic load. The local Interfraternity Council is considering revising this requirement. It is doubtful that the rlolastic requirement will be relaxed, but so me shortening of the period of time over which it is measured may be in prospect. Such a change would allow initiations before the Christmas holidays. Alpha Zeta Chapter reports from Orego n State College that its normal house capacity has been expanded to allow 45 men to be acco mmodated. Since the chapter has 21 members and 28 pledges, on ly four men are li ving outside the houes. All of the various reserve classes are available at 0. S. C. Th e main regi stration for these had not been held at the time the chapter reported, but it is apparent from figures received that Alpha Zeta is well represented in them . Enrollment at 0. S. C. dropped from 4,330 in the fa ll of 1941 to 4,004 this fall. Male enrollment for the sa me elates was recorded at 2,733 and 2,527. Typical for this type of institution was the 16 per cent increase in the size of the freshman class over that of a Year ago. Alpha Eta Chapter's chief progress at Howard College lies in the realm of housing. Long ob ligated for a hou se built at the height of the booming twenties, the chapter has seen the Co llege take over thi s property this fall and completely renovate it for their continued use. Rental is reaso nable and includes all utilities with the exception of telephone. With rushing continuing the seven returning members have already brought the total pledge class to 17 men . Nine men are in reserve classes, three are deferred and 11 not classified . One is listed as 1-A. C. P . T. and glider courses are offered at th e college. No enro llm ent figures have been released. Alpha Theta Chapter finds the Michiga n State College campus overcrowded as the army has taken over dormitory units for so me 300 men for an ordnance school. Enrollment ha s varied only slightly (from 6,350 to 6,300--male from 3,820 to 3,800) and the house has two more men than necessary to fill it to comfortable capacity. Table operations are also at a peak . Rushing was not too successful but this was primarily due to a traditional carryover policy which states that "the chapter concentrates its ru shing throughout the year, not just in the fall ." However, 34 members and pledges are on hand and working hard. Reserve classes hold 18 of these men. It is expected that the lower draft age wi ll bring about an increase in the percentage (at present 40 per cent) of the student body enrolled in reserves. Alpha Iota Chapter rides the crest of the wave at Alabama Poly. The Auburn boys have their new home filled to overflowing and move ahead with capable leaders handling 44 members and 29 pledges. Twenty-five of these men hold reserve ratings. Auburn operated throughout the summe~, changing from semester to quarter system. Enro llment th1s fall was 3 622 as compared with 1941's 4,173. Male enrollment was '3 173 as compared with 2,811 in 1941. All types of reserve dasses are open to Auburn men with about 50 per cent of the student body enrolled as of mid-October. Alpha Mu Chapter, Pennsylvania State ~o!lege,, has ~p er ­ ated continuously over the summer. As th1s IS bemg wntten they have 32 members and 13 J?ledges, 16 of whom are either in reserves or deferred . Nme of the members have just been initiated from the class of men pledged in June . College enrollment figures are not av~ilable. St~te ~s now operating on 15 week semesters, allowmg graduatiOn m two years and eight months after entrance. New students ma y be admitted at the first of any semester. Alpha Xi Chapter has found the going at Brooklyn. Poly pretty tough during the last st;veral years. Nume~1cally. chapter membership bit a low f1gure last year. Th1s fall the boys seem to be on their way again at a time when Poly's technical offerings, geared to the war effort, have brought an increase of 100 men and a total enrollment of 750. Alumni support of this chapter continues to be outstanding. Alpha Omicron Chapter, Iowa State College, has felt the pinch of diminishing manpower as much as any chapter we have. In the course of the last 12 to 14 months some 19 members and pledges have left the campu~ for the ar~ed services and a variety of other rea sons ch1ef among wh1ch is the shortage of agricultural labor at home. The present chapter is drawn 75 per cent from the sophomore class and OF




12% pe~ cent from each of the two higher classes. The pledge roll is healthy and would be adequate in normal times. Rushing activity has not been relaxed. These boys are working hard. All of the various reserve classes are available at Iowa State. About 42 per cent of our personnel hold reserve classifications. Total enrollm ent has dropped from 6,450 to 6,000 since the fall of 1941. Alpha Sigma Chapter ha s made a real co meback at the University of T ennessee. Their decision to move to their present location about two years ago is now payi ng dividend s as they show 36 members and pledges with th e hou se and table operating at advantage. One third of the men hold reserve ratings. No enro llment figures have been made available for this report. The quick turnover of cooperative stu d~nts continues to present so mewh at of a problem at Alph a S1gma, but on the whole the chapter is doing good work. Alpha Tau Chapter ha s made no comm ent about the admission of coeds to courses a t Rensselaer Poly, but enrollment fi gures show oniy seven arc on the campus. Male enrollment has risen from 1,441 to 1,464. Reserve classes are open for the men in Army, Navy, Marine and Coast Guard courses. It is estimated that about 50 per cent of th e undergraduates will shortly be enrolled therein. Alpha Tau finds 23 of its 50 men with service ratings or deferred classifications. The hou se and table arc comfortably filled . Alpha Upsilon Chapter, Drexel T ech, is another that ha s had no difficulty fillin g its house and table. No enrollment figures are available but it is believed there has been little change from last year's position . Ru shng is deferred until January. Th e chapter has 40 mem hers and six pledges carried over from last year. With a number of these out on coopera tive industry jobs the chapter is well balanced and operates on a twelve month basis. Twenty-eight of the 46 members and pledges hold serv.ic~ ratings. An additional eight are deferred and the remammg 10 are not classified. None are under 18 yea rs of age. Alpha Phi Chapter witnessed the co ntinued growth of Illi nois Tech, t.he combination of Armour Tech and Stevens. Enrollment JUmped from 1,725 to 2,023, male enrollment from 1,575 to 1,911. All courses at T ech arc geared to the war effort and about 30 per cent of the men hold deferred or service ratings.. AlJ?ha Phi has 28 members and 21 pledges, a total of 49 wh1ch 1.s cut about 10 pe.r cent for operating purposes by cooperative students. Vanous se rvic reserves are available for ll;ll full-time day students. The chapter table operates at ~apac1ty and, though not full , the house operatiOn s are sa tisfactory. A cursory perusal of this report may lead the reader to feel that our chapters are going blithely ahead with their work not too well aware of the war around them. With national initiation figures already only six men short of the reco rd at the end of December of last year (and seven weeks to go to that date this year) this picture may be heightened. This is far from the fact, however, and the boys all know it. They are pleased, naturally, that they are being permitted to continue their educational work and that their chapters are operating with full houses; but they know that a general call of all reserves can pull many of their men out of school overnight. Today's campus presents a serious atmosphere. Th e undergraduates fa ces a tough assignment with year-round clas..<es stepped up scholarship standards always under the watchful eye~ of Army and N~vy, ~e'."er an~ sh.orter holidays, higher living costs, etc. H7 IS tra.mmg dally 111 the new ph ysical figures program and IS learmng to take those army obstacle courses ~n stri~e. Ge~e~ally he is healthier and knows th at study 1s so l d1e~ly. trammg. . T~e underg r~d is doing his bit.. His chapte~ IS m there f1 gh~mg, too, w1th its reduced social progra m, mcreased emphasis on scholarship and pledge training, war bond purchases and contributions to Civilian Defense Only one final word wou ld we add for the alumni. ·As and. wh.en ~he day comes that these lads are called up for se rv1ce 1t w1ll be up to you men who live close to the active chapter scenes to take over and hold together what they leave behind . If you have not alrea dy taken steps to organize yo ur home front , there is no tim e like the present to start . 23
