National Office Gets a Bouquet Davidson, N. C.

Dear Editon: The National Office of Pi Kappa Phi is one of the most efficient and systematic offices I've ever !een of any kind! I'm not kidding when I say that it's swell to know that our national headq uarters is run in such a manner. It's really an outfit of which Pi Kappa Phi can be justly proud an d that goes double for its executive secretary and trav~ling counselor. Fraternally yours,

Alpha Tau Uses Leadership Conference Ideas Troy, N. Y. Deat· Editors : We have had occasion to use the executive committee in disciplinary matters of late. The results we got were really outstanding. I believe that the training we got at the Leadership School was an invaluable aid. As you know Alpha Tau was a bit slow in making use of the executive committee, but now it is an important part of the organization. If any of the other chapters have any doubts concerning the effectiveness of this committee, I shall be glad to write up the details of these cases and show the results obtained. It is rea ll y remarkable what a few words will do for an individual if he starts up the wrong fork in the road. Fraternally yours,

EDITORIAL-

Why Alumni Aren't Interested In Chapter Affairs "QUR

ALUMNI never send us any recommendations for rushing Our alumni never show up for our homecoming activities. Our alumni never do respond to our requests for financial aid. Our alumni never know what is going on in the chapter." Those are the common complaints of undergraduate chapters. Do you want to know why these things are so?

Public Relations Are Poor The Public Relations Department, the chapter historian, of the undergraduate chapter is the poorest and most inoperative department in the chapter. We elect some bird because be is a nice guy. He asks what his duties are, and he is told, " I don 't know that there are any except to send a chapter letter to the National Office when they remind you to. " The chapter historian is the very key man in the race for sound alumni relations. It is be who puts you in a good light with the alumni by having good material in The Star and Lamp each issue. It is be who puts you in good light with the alumni by getting out a good chapter paper at least three times a year.

Undergraduates Will "Follow Suit" When you graduate to the lofty status of an alumnus, you too will not send in any recommendations. You won't show up for homecoming. You won't be interested in contributing ten bucks. Why? You will take the position, "Why should I send in any recommendations? I sent in two, year before last, and the chapter historian did not even have the courtesy to write me a 'Thank you' note. I don 't even know whether be got my letter, looked up the men, pledged them, or what. Also, I don 't care anything about going to Homecoming. I haven 't heard from the undergraduate chapter in years. I don 't even know if they live at the same place. As for contributing ten bucks, hub! the only time I ever bear from those rascals is when they want something! I gotto know who is handling the money and what they are going to do with it before I shell out ten bucks. " Get that historian , your public relations man , on the ball!

Past President Meisel Is Active In Fraternity Affairs .

"WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU," said Albert W. ("Al") Meisel to The Star and Lamp reporter, as he invited him to occupy a chair in his law office at 230 Park Avenue, New York City. "We are undertaking a series of articles on what has happened to our past national presidents since they left office," said the inquirer. "You were last seen at the 1940 convention in Chicago, and our readers want to know if you are fading away." "Not exactly," said Al. "I have lived in Riverside, Conn., since 1939. First, I occupied an old Colonial house built in 1804, and later bought a more modern and smaller house when my children were married.

" Do you miss your former national fraternitY ~oi tivities?" the reporter asked. "You put in a Jot time as Chancellor and National President. "

" There is no doubt about that," said Mr. Meterl "During my term of service I visited nearly e~1~J chapter of the fraternity as then constituted, h~ii helped install a chapter at Rensselaer Polytec our Institute, Illinois Institute of Technology ( Ar~e31j Institute), and Drexel Institute. It was a g experience." "How do you fill your time now?"

Active in Fraternity Affairs "My fraternity activity has been curtailed, but I have done a little work when circumstances permitted. I have been a Pi Kappa Phi delegate to the National Interfraternity Conference in New York City for a number of years. Also I joined in the reactivation of Psi Chapter at Cornell in 1949. I am a director of the house holding corporation of the Alpha Xi Chapter at Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute. As you doubtless know, I have also acted as a volunteer reporter for The Star and Lamp from time to time."

Archon Fronk Hanvey, left, of Omicron, University of Alabama, is welcoming John P. Fitzgerald, Milton, Flo., the chapter's 600th intiote.

Alabama's Omicron Takes 600th Man The University of Alabama's Omicron Chapter made campus history in October when it sent its six-hundredth member through the sacred rites of formal initiation. John Paul Fitzgerald, 18-year-old pre-medical student from Milton, Fla., was member number 600 among the ten boys who were initiated last Fall. Pledged during the Summer semester, 1951, Fitzgerald had been a Pi Kapp pledge for about three months. He was extremely active in his pledge class, serving on several committees and on various pledge projects. In high school he was equally as active, being a member of the band, the Beta Club, the Thespian Club, and the football team. The initiation which saw the 600-plus members "go through" climaxed a lively five-day "Fun Week," which spotlighted the week's campus activities. Dressed , in colorful plaid shirts, glowing caps, and bright neckerchiefs, the pledges provided many a laugh for outsiders as well as for the "blood-thirsty" Pi Kapps .

"It is evident that our leaders of tomorrow must include numerous scientists and engineers. This will hold whether the job is research, operation, sales or management, whether civilian or military." ' - Clyde Williams in The Magazine of Sigma Chi October, 1951 5


Drexel's Alpha Upsilon Presents"Numbered Daze'' By ROBERT P. CORNELSSEN AS THE CURTAIN came down after the last act of "Numbered Daze" on Saturday night, November 17, the Pi Kapps of Alpha Upsilon Chapter, Drexel, had completed their seventeenth show. There was a mixed feeling of elation and sorrow, for during the past months we had all worked hard on the show. We felt that we had done something worthwhile as fraternity men and had proved that by hard work men can learn to live together and work together for the betterment of all. We thought too of our beginnings so many years ago in the early thirties when a group of men similar to us had gotten together and started the first Pi Kapp show, it being a minstrel. Those were the days of minstrels- they were popular, and the boys of Alpha Upsilon really drew in the crowds at their annual shows. They, too, were a close group, and in so working together placed themselves above the others on the campus.

Plot Originates Many Months Ago This year's show was no idle thought, rather, it was the result of "maximum effort" on the part of every . man in the fraternity . Early last Spring the show had its beginnings; that is, it began to be put down on paper. The plot had been thought of over a year ago, then it was thrown aside in place of last year's show. This was not because it wasn't a good show but because nobody could think of a suitable way to get our hero out of the trouble we'd gotten him into. We racked our brains this year and came up with the answer. During the Summer months, when most people were enjoying themselves at the beaches or at the mountains, the boys of 3405 Powelton Avenue could be found around the table in the kitchen, . having a " bull session" about the show. Soon actual writing began to take place, and songs were beginning to shape up. Luckily for us, our faithful standby, Aennchen, of New York, was available to do our choreography. She has handled the dancing for us since 1938. By the time the Fall term had rolled around we had the scripts mimeographed and ready to be handed to the men who were to do the acting.

SeJection of Girls Is Big Job . One ~f th~ most important jobs of all before us was to pick girls from the incoming freshman class to be in our show. This was a pleasant task, but we had to keep our eyes open for talent as well as beauty. The girls of the shows of previous years helped us very much . We retained some of the girls of last year's

show so that they could help the new g~rls . eaio the ropes ." It should be said here that those girls r the show really worked for us in putting it ove · Without them we cou~d not have had a show. dar Finally, the big nights arrived I Friday and Satu[ of nights of November 16 and 17 found us a bund e 00 nerves, last minute planning and all the things Yad experience when something big is coming off. We hoff no need to worry, though, for the ·show went 00 without a mistake on anybody's part. Not one persod missed a line. We could relax now until next year, 8 we could begin to catch up on our homework.

IFC ENTERTAINS YOUNGSTERS Thanks to the University of Oregon's Inter-Fraternity Council, this past Hallowe'en turned out to be one glorious party for approximately 4,000 grade school children. The Eugene Active Club cooperated by arranging for the local merchants to donate the .food and decoration materials. The houses were paired off to give separate parties for the masked ghosts, demons, witches and little monsters. Everyone gathered in the University of Oregon Basketball pavillion, MacArthur Court, to wind up the gigantic party. Prizes were given for costumes and contests such as apple-bobbing and pin-the-tail-onthe-donkey. The police reported "the quietest Hallowe'en ever."

" If you would have good alumni support for your chapter, remember these rules: Carry out a wellorganized program to get and keep the alumnus ' interest, maintain a strong undergraduate chapter (because the alumnus wants to back a 'winning team' ) and remember that a good alumnus is made during his undergraduate days.''

"THE GLAMOUROUS LIFE of a sports writer isn 't all glamour." This statement came from a Pi Kapp who has been a sports writer for 23 years. Wilton M. ("Red") Garrison, Rho '25, Washington and Lee, has led a lively career, following sports teams. But what the newspaper readers don't know, he says, is that sports writers put in many weary hours battling the clock on deadlines, looking up statistics and writing routine stories which are merely news- not glamour. Garrison was graduated from Washington and Lee University in 1928. He was editor of the student newspaper his junior year and editor of the university humorous magazine his senior year, in addition to being associate editor of the university yearbook. He was tapped by Omicron Delta Kappa, national leadership fraternity, for his work.

at Pete Tennyson's in Atherton for lunch and then went, with our dates, to the game as a body. Upsetting Stanford and winning the Big Game put us in the proper mood for the festivities to follow. Immediately after the game was open house at the home of Arnie Turner, a recent alumnus, in Menlo Park. From there the group proceeded to Doug Higgins' home in San Francisco for another open house anri buffet dinner, then back to the Chapter House for our Victory Dance, and the end of Big Game-Homecoming week end. Another highlight of the social season was the recent dance given by the Pledge Class. The theme was the "Roaring Twenties," and everyone came complete with the appropriate costumes. It made you feel good to realize that we didn't grow up in those days, such styles those women had. Next semester we will have our annual "Heat Wave" and Rose Formal. Gamma gave a Christmas party for underprivileged children and one for its members. Monday, December 10, was a memorable day. After 13 months and one week we finaJly received our skin which we won from the boys at Alpha Delta Chapter as a result of a bet on the 1950 California-Washington football game. The boys from up North are to be congratulated though on their gesture of good will in putting the score of the 1951 game on it. We have given the skin a place of honor on the wall of the chapter house. With a snowpack of better than 70 inches in the Sierras already, several of the members are planning ski trips for the near future.

Climax of rushing came with a terrific date party in Daytona Beach. The affair got started with a beach party at Brother Cecil Grant's cottage village on the ocean. In midafternoon the group moved to the beautiful Bath and Tennis Club for indoor pool swimming. A banquet served to the 160 PI Kapps, dates, and guest, was followed by a dance. The social season continued with the pledges' Hallowe'en Party, open houses following football games, Homecoming, and the father -son (pledges) Christmas party. Homecoming, highlight of the Fall semester, saw approxi mately 50 Pi Kapp alumni return to DeLand for the reunion . Activities included a cabaret party Friday night and a buffet supper following the football game, and the Claude Thornhill Dance. Among the prominent alumni at the buffet were Amory Underhill, Assistant Attorney General of the U. S.; Congressman Syd Herlong; Tom Bailey, Superintendent of Public Instruction for Florida; Charles Tom Henderson, Assistant Attorney General of Florida; Legislator Tom Cobb, and Ed Henderson, Secretary of the Florida Education Association. Sen. George Smathers was Brother Herlong's guest at the buffet for the second consecutive year. Homecoming Display Places Second The yard display for the Homecoming took second place. It was composed of two 20-foot radio towers with blinking

lights, " 1Hrar. newspaper and magazine, each 16 feet high and glorifying the Stetson Hatters. Across tne •oof was a sign inscribed with "News of the Day." Although the Pi Raf'p float did not win a prize in the parade, it was probably the only float in the history of the university that called two fire trucks and received a separate story on the front page of the DeLand Sun News. The excitement was caused when a smoke bomb backfired and set the float on fire. In sports Pi Kappa Phi is the only frat to hS:ve taken a first place in the intramural race. The Blue Tops captured the basketball title again and also took the trophy for ping pong. With basketball season here four Pi Kapps can be spotted on the varsity team. They are all-state Jim Tavinere, Pete Petterson, Jim Carlin, and Marty Rossi.

Men initiated into Alpha Zeta during the Fall term were Terrence Christensen, Ralph Denney, Mel Larson, and Dick Valleroy. As an incentive toward earning better grades, a "steakmush" dinner was held soon after midterms, those above the average scholastically eating steaks, and those below, mush. The steaks were so good, and the mush so bad, that more 23

Alpha Theta

At the last meeting of Winter term, Alpha Theta elected new officers. The chapter chose Jack Laird as archon. Last term Jack did a commendable job as chapter secretary. Bill Brink was elected treasurer. Bob Meyers was elected secretary, and John Hoinville, historian. John has served as chaplain in a previous term. Keith Darby was named chaplain, and Tom Burridge, warden. He took over the duties of warden in the middle of last term when Arnie Pinn was called into active duty with the Naval Reserve. John Mensch will continue his fine work as steward. Again, all inter-fraternity sports will be directed by the Watertown Terror, Richard ("Dirty") Allen . The Homecoming program was a huge success at East Lansing. Alpha Theta had a delicious buffet luncheon prepared by its able steward John Mensch. About 150 alumni and friends visited the house during the day. Our display again scored close to th.e top in Greek competition. We were awarded fifth place with our victory rocket. Many thanks must be given to Fred Crippen, former art editor of Spartan humor magazine, for his terrific art work . Incidentally, Michigan State's nationally ranked powerhouse smothered the University of Pittsburgh, 53-26, to put the final touch on a perfect Homecoming day. We out-did all of the fraternities on campus by grabbing 28 hard-working and conscientious pledges. Our rushing chairman, Rollie Kalmbach, did a fabulous job. Alpha Theta's ann1.1al Rose Ball will be held February 16 this year. All alumni are invited to attend the event which is again to be held at the Hotel Olds in Lansing. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m ., and a dance will follow in the main ballroom. The committee headed by John Hoinville is composed of Keith Darby, Bob Hicks, Jack Braun, and Tom Harle.

Beta Zeta

We have had a visit from Ramon Sanchez, traveling counselor. We thought he was a fine fellow. We are sure he did us some good. The day after he arrived we had him at work cleaning up the house and sawing wood for the furnace. As far as we know that was the first time a VIP from the National Office ever had to work for his chow. He actually had blisters on his hands. Five of us here at Beta Zeta, Earl Dunagan, Bud Dettmann, John De Maris, Sonny Goodell, and Jack Breuer, donated blood to the father of one of the local Pi Phi's. At last word he was on the road to recovery. - John De Maris, Historian

Beta Eta

The most important event in November was the initiation of three pledges into membership. They are Jose Marti, New York, N.Y.; Lewis Symmes, Tampa, Fla., and Alan Sundberg, Jacksonville, Fla . An interesting sidelight on these three new members is that their heights range from six feet two to six ·feet five. We submit this average as the tallest average height of any pledge class of Pi Kappa Phi. On the social side, we have had a Record Party and a Hobo Party for the members, pledges, and their dates. Prizes were awarded for the most original costumes at the Hobo Party . This year, in order to maintain ourl high scholastic average, we have instituted a compulsory study hall for the pledges to be held twice a week. - Arden A. Anderson, Historian

Since receiving our national charter last April, Beta Theta has grown to a size of 30 men. Officers for this semester are Arthur Rah'm, Tucson, archon; Tom Gilmour, Ontario, Canada, secretary; John Bailey, Ventura, Calif., treasurer; Charles Hausen fleck, Evansville, Ind., historian; Don Choisser, Chicago, Ill., warden, and Jerry Wharton, Tucson, chaplain. Just prior to the beginning of the school year the chapter house underwent a complete renovation. Paint brush and hammer-wielding actives accomplished the task of interior decorating and outside repair. Plans are now being made, however, for a program of greater expansion which calls for a second floor on the house to accommodate a large number of men, in anticipation of an even more successful rush season next semester. - Charles H.ausenfleck, Historian

Pi Kapps Are Named To Key Posts At U. of Tennessee TWO PI KAPPA PHI members at the University of Tennessee have recently been appointed to key positions in the University's administration. Dr. Frank B. Ward is the new dean of the U-T College of Business Administration, and W. Harold Read is new U-T budget officer. Both are Alpha Sigma '34. Dr. Ward is a nationally-known economist who has headed the U-T Department of Economics. He has been at Tennessee for 23 years, and prior to that was on the faculties of the University of Cincinnati and the University of Pennsylvania. He holds degrees from those two institutions as well as from Denison University. One of the most popular members of the fa·culty, he is in heavy demand as a speaker to business and educational groups. Professor Read has been professor of accounting at the university and has continued to teach on a part-time basis after taking over duties as budget chief for the entire institution. He has been on the faculty since · 1930, and has become widely known as a specialist in governmental accounting. A graduate of the University of Tennessee and Northwestern University, he served four years with the Army's fiscal division during World War II, and after his discharge was selected as one of 21 leading accounting specialists of the nation to serve on the Advisory Panel of the Army Comptroller.

Laird, in Arizona, Enioys Frozen Food Business FROM SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ., comes word from Alexander ("Sandy") Laird, Omega '41, Purdue, that after spending three years with Patton's various outfits he "got home in one piece." He visited with his parents, made a tour of the country, and in December, 1946, married Miss Carolyn Sutter, sister-in-law of Bill Truesdale, Omega '34. In Phoenix, Ariz., Mr. Laird became interested in the frozen food business. Now he is part owner of such a business. "It was quite a struggle at first because, as in many small businesses, we bad trouble accumulating enough working capital to expand as fast as we desired," he explained. "But we are well over the hump, and things are going along in great fashion. We started a houseto-house selling campaign right from a refrigerated truck, having routes similar to the dairy business .. 28
