Letters from Our Readers Stoudt Commends Leadership Conference Wyomissing, Penna. Dear Editors: Now that I have had a chance to think it over, I am still duly impressed by the results of the Leadership Co nference that we held at State College. Your several topics provoked thorough thoughtfulness by the audience, and you arc to be congratulated on revamping the schedule based on previous experience. Anyone who attended both sessions could not help but derive much personal benefit from the performances. Fraternally yours,

Conference Causes Better Understanding, Radford East Lansi1rg, Mich· D ear Editors: The Leadership Conference at Michigan State College is the first one ever held in our District X f~r ~~ benefit of local chapters of Pi Kappa Phi. The spirit of Inen ) rivalry and active participation by the officers and other rnetll~ bers of both Beta Iota Chapter of Toledo UniversitY an Alpha Theta Chapter in Michigan State College is evidence of the success of the conference. One of the chief benefits of the conference is that it bas engendered a feeling among the men of the )~cal chapters tn~: the National Office has a personal interest in them and theJ problems. The meetings here have resulted in a better unde~; standin g of the fu nction of th e National Office and the wa) in which it ca n and does render service to the local chapter>

The exchange of ideas and the discussion of pledge rushing and training, financial, social, and scholastic problems cornrno~ to local chapters is worth while. In talking with the member' present from both chapters, it is the consensus that the co~~ ference should be held each year and that it is well worth t cost invo lved. Yo urs fraternally,

I TI:IE FOLLOWING LINES from Brother Ralph M.

d

Snider, District Archon of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, prompted us to write this editorial: "I can't understand why they feel they have to have ~~ch ~ wonderful house in order to rush. I realize at times do change and maybe I am old fashioned, bUt gash , we never had as good a · house as they have now, and I don 't remember that we had a hard time getr C Ing good men if we would go out after them. bourse they don't just come around and ask to pledge, f Ut men don't pledge for the house only, they pledge or the fellowship and pleasant associations. A house :ay help create a good atmosphere, but is isn't all Y any means."

Roosevelt's Program intra~lin Delano Roosevelt may have had excellent an ent10ns when he started the CCC, the FHA, NRA, h d other alphabetical phenomena in 1933. He may i:ve been revealing his best humanitarian instincts n ~n attempt to ease the pain of a depression-ridden pa~ton. These measures, like morphine, did ease the "'~:f temporarily. Also. like morphine, these measures 1 ruin us if we don't come off them.

r What is not known is whether be could or did boresee just what a terrible tragedy would befall us the hands of the monsters he created to administer 111 au at may have been humanitarian objectives originlrllc lh Y. The very bureaus created by him to administer ~ in 1 \Vese relief measures have become our Frankensteins. Ge now have a much too-heavily centralized Federal 1 dovernment. Such a monster contains the seeds of '49 e~truction because with it comes the accompanying ~It and overwhelming desire and possibility of peri tuating itself until we reach the brink of Communsill.

Average Youth Is Socialistic

1

~ou may be wondering why we discuss this gory

~b]ect in a fraternity publication. It is because of

8

.Ate even greater evil which has befallen the youth .of Slll~rica today: The average youth of today. is aOctalistic in his thinking though he screams wtth ~&uish when confronted ~ith the charge. The truth or the matter is that he wants all of the adva~tages p ~cialism without being so called and WJthout aytng the price.

He w~nts ~o go to school on the GI Bill. What's more he ll ra1se hades if the allotment is not enough to cover the whole bill. He is not satisfied with a little. ~it to help him. He doesn't take all this to be a pnv1lege. He assumes this as a right. Let the government pay the bill and worry about it too. What could be more Socialistic thinking? He turns up his nose at the old substantial boarding house or school building which has no mortgage. He w~nts a new 11;nd grandiose Student Union Building, With a fantastic mortgage for someone else. Let the government carry the mortgage and worry about it too. What could be more Socialistic thinking? He has come to believe that one judges the pledging power of a fraternity chapter to be in direct proportion to the. gra~dness ?f the home. Whether or not the home IS paid for IS a poor second consideration. Let the gover~ment carry the mortgage and worry about the collectiOn. What could be more Socialistic thinking?

"Oldsters" Are To Blame <:;a~ t~e youth of America be blamed for this Soctahsttc trend? No, he can be blamed for it only to the extent that any individual should be blamed f~r not breaking away from his environment and doing his own thinking.

The primary blame must be laid at the door of of us who permitted this monster to be born m the weak moment of our depression and gather st:ength under our noses until it looks as though we Will never be able to stem a tide which threatens to carry us over the narrow channel between Socialism and Communism. ~hose

The alarmingly appalling thing is that those of us who remember free enterprise, as contrasted with our present situation, are dying out. With us passes the hope of getting us away from Socialism. The youth of today is not yet interested in a change. He is enjoying the fruits of Socialism while _the _deb~s created thereby are not due and payable. H1s VIew IS a distorted one because he has not seen free enterprise. He has seen the good side of a Socialistic program. He will be hard to head off until it is too late for him to see the folly of his ways.

Seeds of Doom Would God that the young man of today would see that the small, paid-for. car, the small, paid-for home, the small, pa1d-for diamond ring contain the s~eds of happiness, while the big, unpaid-for car the b_Ig. unpaid.-for home, and the big, unpaid-for dia~ond nng con~a1.n the seeds of Socialistic, and perhaps Commumsttc, doom.

Miami Convention to Face Major Fraternity Issues By W. BERNARD JONES, JR.

THE EVERGLADES HOTEL, overlooking

Biscayne Bay, in down-town Miami. will be the scene of Pi Kappa Phi in action August 2 7-30 to determine the course of action to be taken in major issues like: Defining the areas of free<;lom and responsibility of the undergraduate chapter; the selectivity clause, and the policy toward major expansion activities. Undergraduate chapters are sure to discuss the possibility of more constitutional freedom in the handling of local affairs. In this category are such items as the right to elect new officers when and in the way desired by the undergraduate chapter; the freedom to define " inactive status" locally. The procedure for handling delinquent accounts is due for discussion. More chapters desiring the decentralization trend realize that there will be additional local responsibilities accompanying these desired freedoms. The selectivity clause of the fraternity system has been under fire from a few quarters since the close of World War II. The minority group desiring a review of Pi Kappa Phi's position will be heard by the convention body. Since 194 7, the National Office has handled the collection of delinquent member accounts with the result that accounts receivable are the lowest on record . While effective, in the main, the system is sometimes cumbersome, long drawn out, and injurious to public relations. National President Theron A. Houser, St. Matthews, S. C., will preside over the (Continu ed on Pag e 25)

Six Chapters Describe Help Week As Successful CDRRENT DISCUSSIONS of "Hell Week vs. Help Week" prompted the editors of The Star and Lamp to make a survey of Pi Kappa Phi chapters to learn ~e experiences of those chapters which have replaced e)) Week with Help Week. Six chapters responded to the questionnaire. Their reports are given below:

l'he Inter-Fraternity Council at Cornell strongly 1 favors the program of Help Week and urges e3;ch Srate.rnity on the "hill" to participate. The Commumty f"ervtce Committee of the IFC helps the houses by Inding needed work in Ithaca. Psi Chapter regards Help Week very highly, and ~n February 15 it put the pledges to work on an allJ:ay job at the Southside Community Center in Ithaca. ~e Center was mopped and washed, the floor was Patnted, and other odd jobs were done. The pledges ~eceived more satisfaction and pride from this than rom any Hell Week. . . Aside from our pledge activities, the fratermty Itself did one great deed. The idea was brought up and quickly put into motion that we adopt an orphan hr an underprivileged child. Soon came word that we a broken Iegact . a seven-year-old boy' an orphan, with . unsuccesstn a cast. He is having operations qmte 1 tUlly. We send him get-well cards, and when we go 0 see him in the hospital we take him candy, gum, and comic books. His life has been made cheery. f l'he reaction on campus to these ideas ts. very lhyorable. Several other fraternities are changmg to Is type of week. As yet it has not proved an easier way to get ~ledges and members directly, but it makes _for . a etter fraternity relationship and we feel that tt wtll attract more attention in the future. - Douglas Bancroft, Historian Psi Chapter

At Davidson b For some time now there has been a desire at lhaVidson College among the fa.cu!ty and most of tJ e .fraternities on campus to ehmmate Hell .week. d.llhl this year nothing definite had been done m th3;t \>~tection. but this year the Interfraternity Counctl al led to replace Hell Week with ~e~p. Wee~, and most all of the fraternities voted to J0111 m thts plan. 1 l'he program started on Monday, February 11, and a~stect through Thursday, February 14. Monda;y 路 lernoon the combined pledge classes of all fratermtes cleaned up the business district of the town of avidsqn. Monday and Wednesday nights there was 0~

an exchange between different fraternities of half of their respective pledge classes for dinner, the other half of the pledges remaining at their own houses to act as hosts to the visiting pledges. This was to promote friendship between fraternities and an interest among the pledges in all fraternities. Tuesday night the pledges of each fraternity gave a short skit in the auditorium, the winning pledge class receiving a trophy. Formal initiation was held on Thursday, followed on Friday and Saturday by the Mid-Winters Dances. Since this Help Week was the first attempt at anything on that order here at Davidson, many were doubtful about its success, and it was undertaken with a good deal of misgivings. The general reaction to it was a belief that it will grow and in the years to come will become a profitable tradition here on the Davidson campus. It is true that this year Help Week did not eliminate Hell Week, because some or most of the fraternities held Hell Week concurrently with or before or after Help Week, but this new program we feel , is a step in the right direction, and sooner o; later all Hell Week practices will be thrown out in favor of Greek Help Week. - Don Menzies. Historian Epsilon Chapter

At The University of Arizona In accordance with a national trend toward abolishing certain fraternity traditions, the pledges of Beta Theta Chapter spent three days following the first semester exams, improving the fraternity house and its premises. In short, Hell Week became Help Week. 1435 East First Street took the appearance of a construction camp. An army of pledges, aided by some of the members, alternately saluted and painted green until the house had assumed the features of a Sherwood Forest, complete with a rainbow of trimmin's. The campaign for the 2SO necessary pledge points to become members motivated pledge activity within the house. All woodwork was painted or varnished, and the cupboards and cabinets were refinished. All the bathrooms were painted bright colors, and the dining tables got their annual finish. Help Week laborers also cleaned the entire p,roperty, " fore and aft." The annex addition received the major portion of the work, however. The bathroom was walled in and painted. The room adjacent to this was changed into sleeping quarters, raising the capacity for the number (Continued on Page 19) 7


Nebraska's NuNational Cha~pion NEBRASKA'S Johnnie-come-lately Nu Chapter finished a phenomenal climb to the top of Pi Kappa Phi in the race for "Master Chapter." Starting from nothing in 1949 when the Nu Chapter was reactivated, following a 17-year dormancy, the Cornhuskers, led by Durocher-like Chapter Adviser Oscar Koch, were outstanding in every department. Membership and scholarship ran consistently high, financial and budget control was excellent, and contact with alumni through chapter publications was outstanding.

Purdue, Duke, Davidson, Runners-up Purdue, Duke and Davidson engaged in the real dog-fight of the year for the runner-up positions. Duke was a very strong front-runner but tailed off somewhat in the alumni relations department while Purdue finished strongly to close a wide mid-Winter gap. Davidson was strong in every department and placed fourth. The University of Florida led a spirited if spotty race for the Florida championship. Stetson yielded only because it was unable to maintain the pace in budgetary control. Florida State and Florida Southern dogged each other's heels all year and wound up with only a single point separating them. Spotty financial and budget control hamper~d Florida State while lack of scholarship slowed Flonda Southern. California kept rolling along to lead the western contingent. Oregon and Oregon State were disappointing as they slipped out of the top bracket. Lack of scholarship was their undoing.

Newark ' Is Surprise Newark was the sur.prise package of the season. The Jersey-ites finished a surprising 6th and might have copped the bunting if the alumni relations department had been alert the whole year. Toledo, Pi Kappa Phi's newest neophyte, caught on quickly and finished a strong 9th. Rensselaer Newark Cornell, and Brooklyn, comprising Dist~ict I, ~ade the o~tst~nding d~str~ct improvement under the capable dtrect10n of D1stnct Archon Fred Krupp. North Carolina's District Archon, Bill Brinkley, might well be proud of his district with three of his four chapters in the top 7. Duke placed second. Davidso~ fourth, and N. C. State, 7th.

Pennsylvania Has 100 Per Cent Pennsylvania saw its Drexel and Penn State slugging for the Penn title. Both were Master Chapters as Penn State edged out Drexel. District Archon Stoudt has 100 per cent for the first time. Georgia's venerable and outstanding District Archon, Walter Doyle, had an excruciatingly pai;tful year. For the most part, his charges floundered m and out of the cold cellars of Pi Kappa Phi with Mercer holding 8

up the league. Only Emory was able to hold its bead high and maintain the "success attitude." d Jimmy Wilson, South Carolina's colorful ~n 1 aggressive leader, had little to cheer his usually hg~ heart as Charleston. Presbyterian, 3;nd Furman .W.ag· lowed in the mire most of the year. The lone shtn10 light was dependable Wofford which hits the big tin1e consistently. Newcoming to the charmed circle are Nebraska.

Leadership Conferences Cover Nation THE PI KAPPA PHI Leadership Confarence program was born in 1948. It had long been recognized that a system as loose and far-flung as Pi Kappa Phi needed some medium for drawing together the chapters and the National Office. There was needed some medium for standardizing those aspects of administrative procedures which would benefit by national standardization. There was a crying need for tightening of the scholarship control., the improvement of chapter alumni relations, the imprc>vement of the chapter budgetary systems, and the tightening of the control of chapter accounts receivable. The Leadership Conference has afforded the local and national unit get-together which has been used so effectively in the industrial field for the past 25 years.

Gene Anderson, a senior this past year, from Spartanburg. S. C., seemed to sneak Uf.l on that key. He has always bad excellent grades, and be bas been dean's list material during all of his semesters at Washington and Lee, but for him to cop the key was a pleasant surprise. Bill Bailey, whe is from WilmiFigton, Ohio, was among the first junior-s to be tapped to the s6lciety at Washington and Lee. Prior to this year it had been the policy te initiate only those who had reached the senior year. Bill had had an excellent scholarship record at Greenbrier Military School befere entering Washington and Lee in the Fall of 1949. Bill is now in the Commerce School and plans to enter the Law School this Fall. Bill Stewart and J . C. Turk were transfers to Washingten and Lee, each entering the Law School in 1949. "J. C." had been initiated into Pi Kappa Phi during his undergraduate days at Xi at Roanoke College. Bill was initiated intm Rh0 in 1951, after having transferred from the University of Alaliama where he received his B.S. in Chemistry and Geology.

Presbyterian Promotion Man Is Pi Kapp By MARVIN C. WILBUR Of

io SOME MONTHS AGO a letter came from national headquarters of Pi Kappa 路 Phi, stating simply, " We want a story on you. Don't disappoint us." Well, now. that was a forthright request, and so I nodded assent. Having written dozens of biographical sketches recently, I thought the assignment would be comparatively easy. But I was wrong. There is too much source ' material readily available which is delightful to reminisce over but is hardly apropos for the task at hand. Hence, with the copy deadline already behind me, I've spent an enjoyable morning aiming lead paragraphs at the wastebasket, and am only able now to marshall a few facts together and to reaffirm my personal indebtedness to Pi Kappa Phi. Reflecting today, as a Presbyterian minister,! think ' I could say without too much argument that I was " predestined" .to become a brother of Pi Kappa Phi. (There 's a theological twist in the above sentence which I hope no one will overwork .) My older brother, Norman. who is now an accountant in Portland, then a senior at Oregon State, was a member, and my family moved into the fraternity house for the Summer preceding my entrance into Oregon State. Thus my pledge days began early, for the most of that Summer I sat out on the fraternity 's huge front lawn digging weeds. I became a member of Alpha Zeta on February 11, 1933, having enjoyed a 25-mile walk in a heavy snowstorm the night previo!JS.

Marvin C. Wilbur at the entrance ta Union Theological Seminary, Broadway and 120th Street, next door to Riverside Church, known for the ministry of Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick.

Attends National Convention As a sophomore, I attended, with fraternity brother , Don Tomlinson, Alpha Zeta's delegate, the Pi Kapp 1 National Convention at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. The convention impressed me immensely, and so did New York City. I think my desire to return to Manhattan stems from this first visit. Oregon State instilled in me an interest in journalism and communications which has since served me well. Three years on the staff of the Oregon State Daily Barometer brought me the editorship in my senior year. At the same time I was mana路ger of the fraternity. Upon graduation in June, 1936, I became private 1 secretary to Dr. Frederick M. Hunter, who had recently become Chancellor of the Oregon State System of Higher Education, with offices at the University of Oregon at Eugene. During the next year we traveled together over 30.000 miles of Oregon's highways, visiting such other divisions of the State 16

System as the Medical and Normal Schools, the agricultural experiment stations, and marine biological laboratories.

Ma){es Virginia Connection The next few years showed that the fraternities' national executive secretaries were worthy allies and friends to have. In June of 1938, I received a telegram from Howard Leake, inquiring as to my availability as assistant secretary of the fraternity. I had , however, previously determined to go East to school at George Washington University in Washington, D. C. This ~ did, but when the Spri ng rolled around I was out of money and indeed in need of a job. It was John McCann who called me to come to Richmond for a visit which opened up a contact with Ray Alan Van Clief, multi-million~ire financier and member of the New York Stock Exchange, who had a 1300-acre estate near Charlottesville, Virginia. It was here that THE

my "fortune " was recouped as private secretary. Because of this opportunity and the fact that I could return each Summer to Virginia, I was able to finance way through Union Theological Seminary, Ne:w ork City. and was graduated with a B.D. degree m I ~ay, 1943. This financial assistance made it possible or me to enter the field of my first choice, though bot without much inner searching as 1 had previously reen offered the position of private secretary to ormer President Herbert Hoover. During my last two years at Union, I was director ?f the news bureau, which was at that time a student l?b. In 1949, I returned to Union as the first fullhtne director of Public Information. b Upon graduation from Union in May, 1943, I ecame a Navy Chaplain with duty the next ~hr~e and a half years as chaplain of the neuro-psychiatr!c ~enter, boot-training camp, Farragut, Idaho; Chaplam f ~he troop transport U.S.S.

THOUGHTS FOR RUSHEES ARE GIVEN BY HERUM, AO, IOWA STATE LENGTHY SPEECHES and entire books have been justly devoted to the advantages of fraternity life so it is impossible to explore the subject thorough!; in a few paragraphs. But there are many new men who perhaps often wonder just where they are headed -what is all this fraternity business, anyhow? As a m~~ber of Pi Kappa Phi. I'd like to present my opmwns. Fraternities are closely knit groups of men who have the same interests and goals. Through these ties and the common bond of the house, they are held together as is no other social group. So, men along with the button and the hand-clasp, here's what we have to offer: A home to call your own-a place to eat rest and relax-a place to bring your family and friends' and to say, "This is my home and these are my brothers." The incentive to improve your manners and to analyze your habits in an atmosphere where you may criticize and be criticized without malice but with a common effort toward improvement. The opportunity to practice administration-to present ideas and direct discussion- to co-operate and arbitrate-to learn to stress without straining. An innumerable list of organized activities in which you may participate, developing untapped abilities and filling your free hours with pleasant diversions. A group of men, many of them older than yourself who, although you may sometimes fail to realize it' will earnestly try to help you over those sharp. slip~ pery rocks of living. And, then, when you've stepped out and "hung your shingle," a place to which you may return and be welcomed by your friends. Again you say, "This is my home and these are my brothers." That date is not a distant pipe dream; it will soon be a reality for all of us. - Floyd L. Rerum, Alpha Omicron '49

MAGAZINE IS MODELED AFTER "QUICK" A Quick Omicroniclc, giving a "play-by-play" account of the goings on at Omicron, University of Alabama, was issued in May by Omicron, under the editorship of Bruce Harrison who modestly refrained from introducing the magazine's editorial staff until the reader arrived at the inside back cover.

Pictured under the head of "Meet the Editors" are Mr. Harrison, Journalism majlilr from Lanett, Ala.; his assistant, Jimmy Townsend, pre-law, also from Lanett, and the photographer, Hugo :Munro, Tuscaloosa, Ala. The magazine, 4~x6 inches, is an excellent .take-off on Quick magazine. Its 32 pages and cover, m black and red are crammed with news and pictures of life at Omidron. The layouts are exceptionally well done. It was designed especially for rushing purposes and to strengthen alumni relations. A copy will be sent to every freshman entering the university this Fall.

At The University of Illinois Of the 56 social fraternities and 23 sororities at the University of Illinois, the largest number of such organizations on any campus in the world, Upsilon Chapter was the first to initiate a Help Week program this year. The action was staged December 1, 1951 when Upsilon's pledge class went in a body to B~rnham City Hospital in Champaign. Ill., to spend a day doing clean-up work and general odd jobs. Archon Carl Bla~e, Beardstown, Ill.. cal~ed 0. L. Rohsenberger, busmess manager at the hospital, on the evening before the big day to see if he could use the services of ten stalwart pledges. Always being able to use a little extra help, Mr. Rohsenberger promptly replied that it was a fine idea, and that they would be very welcome. The pledges had all left the house by 8 o'clock in the morning. All through the forenoon, the neophytes did everything from sweeping in the basement to scrubbing floors in the operating room and as Cecil Brady, maintenance foreman, said t~ the Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette, "They did what they were told, and did it well." Tlae pledges returned from the hospital at noon in time to eat lunch and take a well deserved rest. When later asked how they felt about the whole project, the pledges unanimously agreed that it was far superior to the old fashioned type ol treatment meted out to plebes of a former day during '!he week following their return from the traditional ·•walkout;" and even recommended it as a project to be (Continued on Pag e 20) 19

Engineer Palsgrove (Continu ed f rom Pag e 12)

I was a member of the pioneer 'class of 28 entering Mechanical Engineering at Rensselaer in 1907 and one of three graduating with honors in 1911. As a student during this period, I was fortunate in being tapped for membership in the Rensselaer Technical Society, one of the leading societies on the campus, and served as treasurer and later as president of this organization. My interest was thoroughly aroused, and after graduation, continued to be of major importance, with the result that I have been the " Man Behind the Scenes" throughout the years 1910 through 1931. and during 1931 to date, (R. T. became a chapter in Pi Kappa Phi in 1931) · as Alpha Tau Chapter Adviser. During my senior year in high school I became acquainted with a young lady from Wilmington DeJa. who was visiting near our home. Resu1t I ~arried Miss Elsie May Adams, September, 1911 ' so that we started out on life 's work together so to sp~ak as I was returning to Rensselaer to teach in the Mechanical Engineering Department. . Since t_his time I have ~ad quite a varied experience m teachmg and consultmg practice together with travels at home and abroad.
