Lamp has been received and painstakingly read, all departments.

In the cause of recognition of the services of Brother John D. Hamer, Sigma, let me report that he was Supreme Journalist (the high ranking title of the early days), following Charley Dillingham. It may not occur to chapter historians that an old calloused Pi Kapp would so eagerly read each and all letters, but I do. And let me add emphasis to paragraph three of Brother E. D. Reeves' letter on Page 2. It is always interesting to me, like Brorher Reeves, to know the home address of a pledge or initiate. My plans have been up until recently formul ated to make a one-day call at Charleston at the time of the semi-centennial celebration. But, my mother's condition (she is past 93) has developed to the point where we no longer venture away from home for more than four or five hours. Time will tell whether we may be able to make the trip Success to all of you of the National Headquarters. Fraternally you rs,

Gressette Is Leader In S. C. Senate "CURR~NTLY.

THE ~IGGEST DOINGS in South Carolma are m the f1eld of education, and Gressette finds himself in the middle of that," so says an article published recently in a South Carolina newspaper. Chairman of Education Committee

The man to whom this reference was made is L. Marion Gresserte, Zeta '20, Wofford College who is rounding out his seventeenth year as a memb~r of the South Carolina State Senate. A resident of St. Matthews, ~· C., .senator Gresserre r~presenrs Calhoun County. He 1s chauman of the Committee on Education, a powerful and important committee since education is ever expanding in South Carolina and more and more of the responsibility, financial and otherwise, is being assumed by the Central State Government under the reorganization program for the state's public schools. Miss Myra Houser Is Clerk

The Senator heads the Judiciary Committee also with its numerous and often profound functions. Mis~ Myra Houser, daughter of Pi Kappa Phi President Theron A. Houser, Zeta '22, and Mrs. Houser is assistant clerk of the Judiciary Committee. The Hodsers live in Sr. Matthews. Senator Gresserre "won his spurs in the Senate largely as a sore of 'opposition' leader to the 'Old Order.' It has made him a very influential figure there." This does not mean, however, that he is always on the "other" side from the so-called "Old Guard." Often he is in agreement with it. It has been said that this has made of him an expert counter-puncher in debate. Senator Gressette practices law· in St. Matthews, the county seat of Calhoun, where he was born and reared He is 52. · Son Plans to Follow Father in Law Practice

Mrs. Gressette is the former Miss Florence Howell of Florence. Senaror and Mrs. Gressette's son L. Marion Gresserre, Jr., called "Larry," is a star football back at Clemson College. He plans to follow his father into rhe law and expects to attend the University of South Carolina Law School. 3

How to Win Funds and Influence People"' Dr. John Bright Knows E HAVE IT ON HIS OWN WORD that Dr. John Bright, Beta '25, Presbyterian College, has W never built a mouse trap-good, bad, or indifferent. Nevertheless, a lor of people are bearing a pathway to his door. And the crowd is steadily increasing. Dr. Bright did not win this public attention overnight, and no outburst of genius or sudden inventiveness inspired the acclaim he is receiving from all sides. The field of Old Testament studies seems hardly to offer a promising route to fame and fortune, but it is along this route that Dr. Bright has made his way to the enviable eminence which is now his.

On both of rhese trips Dr. Bright had, and took, the opportunity to travel widely in Europe and the Near East. He succeeded in covering a vast amount of territory and acquired a rasre for travel which still besets him. In 1935-36 he was at Johns-Hopkins University, beginning his work toward the Ph. D.

West Coast Conclave

In rushing, it was voted thlt upperclassmen shoul~ be responsible for contacting prospects and that alurnnt should make more recommendations. National and individual chapter rushing brochures were deemed helpful. The group expressed a desire that efforts be made to keep a rushing program from becoming concentrated in one geographical area. Study table, quiet hours, and courtesy hours were named as devices to promote scholastic work. . Procedure for awarding the West Coast ScholarshiP Cup was devised. The delegates accepted the invitation of Bud OakeS, Archon of Gamma, that the 1955 West Coast Conclave be held at Gamma. ---'71'/Ct/)tf>----

CALLING THE ROLL

----------------------------·--------------------------~ Alabama Polytechnic Institute Alpha Iota Besides the Red Rose Ball which was held April 2, the Spring social calendar includes, a round of sorority swaps, costume parties, and an ail-day barbecue at Chewacla State Park, followed by a party at the Clement Hotel. Sparked by Fritz Gunn, Mobile, Ala., four men on the regular volley ball ream, combined with four "gals" from Dormitory 7, captured first place in the co-recreational volley ball competition. Congratulations are due Fritz Gunn, James Barton, Jasper, Ala.; Bob Quillen, Gadsden, Ala., and Pledge Joe White, La Grange, Ga., for their participation. Three of the brothers have recently become engaged. They are Bob Mayo, Mobile, Ala., co Miss Gay Birdsong, Oneonta, Ala.; Bob Ward, Jacksonville, Fla., to Miss Carole Tomlinson, Jacksonville, Fla., and Archie Stapleton, Fairhope, Ala., to Miss Lee Brown, Fairhope, Ala. -Charles B- Flynn, Historian College of Charleston Alpha Alpha Chapter will continue irs successful year under the leadership of its new officers, elected in February: Archon, Marshall L. Shearer, Jr.; treasurer, Ray F. Asbelle; secretary, Paul R. Weidner, Jr.; warden, Jesse S. Sparks; historian, Paul R. Weidner, Jr.; chaplain, Jack H. Wilson. Under the guide of its past officers, Alpha has enjoyed one of the best seasons in recent years. With our new rooms at 135 Calhoun Street, with a fine pledge class, and with an outstanding series of social events, Alpha members feel that so far, the 1953-54 year has been an excellent one. The Founders' Day Banquet was held December 12 at the Cavallare Restaurant. The speaker was Founder Simon Fogarty. After the dinner, a smoker was held at the Alpha rooms. Among the duties of the new officers will be the initiation of new members. Three entered the active ranks February 9: Earle Jennings, Jr.; George Jenkins, and Connor Higgins. The pledge class, as chis letter is being written, consists of Leslie McDonald, Bruce Lyerly, Richard Gibson, and Thomas Tucker; these men are planning co be initiated in the near future. Help with plans for the National Convention will be another job for the newly-elected officers and the chapter. Alpha has offered its services to the Convention Committee, headed by Chairman Russell D. Long. The committee is at work arranging the activities of the anniversary celebration, and from the way that plans have progressed so far, the fiftieth birthday will be an outstanding one in the history of the fraternity. -Paul R. Weidner, Jr., Historian Cornell Psi With the sad results of the fire at Kappa Chapter fresh in our minds, we at Psi, as elsewhere, should welcome any measures which would tend to reduce liability of buildings cowards fire. Such a measure is the New York State Multiple Dwelling Act, the so-called Mitchell Fire Law. By specifying in great derail the requirements for various types of dwellings, it hopes to provide the maximum fire protection. However, the cost of complying with this law would be so large as to prove prohibitive to the continuance of many fraternities on campus. Fortunately, the enforcement of this law is left to local 20

authorities who are cautioned co use d:scretion in orderin~ alterations. We would like w suggest to other chapters chat maY bt · b u 1'ld mg new houses 1· n the fu cure not on Iy co fol 1ow the present fire laws, but also co attempt co judge what future provisions may be enacted in their scares. Failure to do so may cause needless future alteration costs. New officers for the Spring term are Archon, David Deirzen. Fredonia, N. Y.; secretary, Harold Sweeney, Birmingh~lll· Mich.; treasurer, Michael Avery, Buffalo, N. Y.; histonaD· Jerome Quinn, New York Ciry; warden, George Askel\', Briarcliff Manor, N. Y., and ch:!plain, David Coward, G]en Rock, N. ]. The initiates of the chapter since last report are Geor8e Blnta, Poughkeepsie, N. Y.; Thomas Eugene Caulfield, Croton l~alls, N . Y.; Richard Craft, Basking Ridge, N. ].; Geor8e D.1wson, Walpole, Mass.; George Knapp, Ithaca, N. Y.; John Meyer, New York City: Roger Olson, Racine, Wis.; Bruce Remick, New York City; Charles Rogers, Lysander, N. '{., and William Thorne, Rochester, N. Y. -Jerome Quinn, Historian Drake Beta Dell" Homecoming, an interesring social program, a visit frotll Executive Secretary W. Bernard Jones, our District Conciavej and Founders' Day were highlights of Beta Delta's fal program. Probably the biggest project of the past few months was our house decoration for Homecoming. A fifteen-foot, thr~ dimensional figure with realistic bulldog head was constructed of paper mache. Smaller football player cut-ours represent the Iowa State "Cyclones." The moving scythe which th~ Bulldog held completed our theme of "Homecoming Harvest -and accurately predicted what was to follow! Our social season led off with a lawn party held on the large cement patio at the rear of the chapter house. ThirtY' five couples enjoyed an evening of dancing and were ente~· rained at intermission by the Pi Kapp Quartet. An enthusiast!~ group enjoyed our record party which was one of the beS of the semester. Costumes for the parry were represencari 0115 of each person's 'favorite record. A large record in che front yard titled "Pi Papp Platter Parry" put the brothers in a "record" mood before they even entered the house. These coupled with several sororiry teas and open houses, folJowing all university athletic events, have made our social progrl!Jll a full one. Beta Delta was honored December 2 by a visit from our Executive Secretary and Wayne Moore, National SecretO~j The suggestions which they made co rhe Executive Coun~' were indeed appreciated. They also previewed the Distflct Conclave, offered some interesting suggestions concer~i~ rush, and presented general information at a combJil . pledge-member meeting which followed. Enthusiasm vtW> running high by that week end and close co 20 mea represented our chapter at Columbia, Mo., for our District Leadership Conference. Founders' Day was celebrated chis year December 7, witll John Coons, Vern Sodawasser, John Gritton, and Brother Moore as guests.

Iota

This quarter has developed into one of the most profitable ones in years. Both in advancement in campus standing and achievement. The brothers of Iota have been wholeheartedly in the middle of the work the whole quarter long. Starting out with the initiation of eight new men, they haven't stopped once throughout the rush season, the sports program, the Rose Ball, the house improvement, and various other projects. In rushing we gleaned three new pledges, Jim Murray, Tampa, Fla.; Bob Lynch, Pulaski, Va., and Dick Bigelow, Atlanta, Ga., and a lot of experience in how to do off-season rushing, making it pay off. The new men initiated this quarter are Bob Carri, New York, N. Y.; Michael Combs, Woodmere, N. Y.; Alan D. Guggolz, New York City; Peter J . Harrison, Clearwater, Fla.; John Irvin, Miami, Fla.; John Teramo, Cederhurst, Long Island, N. Y., and Hugo Peters, Monroe, Ga. In the sports field our basketball team has tied for the league championship, and in softball the team is expected to "cop" all the honors coming and going. This year's Rose of Pi Kappa Phi for the Iotans is Mrs. Bobbie Frick, wife of our treasurer, Carl Frick, Freehold, N . J. She was presented to the world Friday, February 12, in the Pompean Room of the! Atlanta Biltmore Hotel by Archon Jim Bushong, Arlington, Va. A leadout of all the members, pledges, and their dates followed the impressive ceremony of presentation. Afterwards everyone adjourned to the local Howard Johnson's for a big breakfast, to complete a perfect Rose Ball. Just about every Saturday afternoon of this quarter has been filled with various projects being executed on the house. The basement has been fully developed into one of rhe best party areas on campus along with being useful as a study and general recreation area. The front of the house has taken on a new look, with the addition of a wall and a landscaping job. Around the side there is a new walk, poured with concrete donated by Alumnus Bob MacDougald, of Atlanta, Ga., along with a terrace at the back door of the same material. - Albert Butler, Historian

As has been our custom for the past several years, we SPonsored the annual Inter-fraternity Sing competition at the s~arr of the present term. SAE's were judged the winner, t us breaking a rwo-year monopoly that Sigma Chi has held on the cup. The pledge class fought the brothers to a 7-7 tie in the annual Pledge-Brother football game. Com)iletition was keen throughout the game. Alumni relations have improved considerably during the ~ear. We send out alumni letters regularly and endeavor to evelop a closer relationship with the alumni who live in and around Raleigh. The house has had a complete interior face-lifting. With a new coat of paint, new, modern furniture, and new drapes, the house do~sn't even seem like the same place. We used contrasting dark and light colors throughout the interior.

The dance was climaxed by the crowning of our Star, Miss Jackie Wells frolll Picayune, Miss., and a member of Chi Omega Sorority. Later in the Fall the pledges had their annual dance and crowned their pledge sweetheart. She was Miss Mary Ella Smothers, from Albertville, Ala., and a member of Alpha Gamma Sorority. Mother Stoddard, usually called Mother "S," returned ro Omicron after Thanksgiving. She was absent and confined ro her home because of illness. While Mother Stoddard was recuperating, Mrs. Henry p.

We maintained our high ranking on the campus in intramural sports by entering a football team in competition with 26 other fraternities and finishing with a 6-0 record. The team later went to the finals. As a result of having such a good football team with such a fine record, two men were placed on an all-campus first team. They were Paul Crow and Bill Ray Self. James Prater Was placed on the second team. We also won the annual football field meet in competition with the mentioned 26 fraternities. The men are making a fine showing in horseshoes, tennis, and basketball also. We have high hopes of winning the softball championship. As far as our ranking on the campus in politics, the following data shows for itself that we have our share of men actively engaged in politics: Two new members of Omicron Delta Kappa, Bruce Harrison and Paul Crow; editor of Crimson-White, school paper, Bruce Harrison, and business manager, AI Ritchey; president of Commerce School, Jack Jarrell; Cotillion Club publicity chairman, Austin Brannon.

Since the start of the year we have made several major improvements in the house and its furnishings. Far from the least of these was a beautiful 21-inch television set. On the more practical side, the Dads' Association presented the house with a 25-cubic-foot freezer to help us be better-fed than ever without a strain on the budget. Not to be outdone, the Mothers' Association organized last Dads' Day and already very active, gave the house a much-needed electric roaster. The men themselves kept in step with the trend by walling in a spacious but little-used balcony porch and thereby solving the problem of storage space which had plagued us ever since our occupancy of this house. The following alumni were recently married: Luke Oberwise to Joyce Strong, Albert Dietrich to Claudie Grigsby, Jerry Miller to Elizabeth Rump, Lowell Eldrencamp to Marilyn Hallberg, Carl Blase to Marilyn Hackman, Donald Rice to Betty Joliffe, Roger Blake to Fran Loitz, Jerry Walters to Marilyn Welch, Donald Rogers to Rosemary Shepherd, Dohn Mehlenbacher to Barbara Stinson, and David Kallal to Shirley Landwehr. The pledge dance was a gay presentation based on the theme of the "Roaring Twenties." The men and their dates wore costumes of that era, and the Charleston was danced. The decorations represented a speakeasy's establishmentcomplete with a boarded-up front door, the couples' dance programs serving as "passes" to enter through the back ~oor. In a somewhat more subdued mood, our Winter Formal, one 26

of the most successful on campus, was entitled "Fifty Fathoms" and the entire first floor was decorated to represent the under路 sea world. One of the more interesting items of decoration was an aquarium which enclosed the band , complete with a sign reading "Please do not feed the fish ."' Another event was our open house to celebrate our first year in our new house. All other fraternities and sororities were invited, as well as all our friends and neighbors. -Charles L.

Rush season has again arrived and we are holding manY interesting activities. Among them are luncheons smokers, and costume parties. The latest, a "Haunted Ho~se Parry," was a fabulous thing indeed. The house was decorated to look quite spooky. The front door was boarded up and the guests were greeted with signs such as "Condemned" and "proceed at your own risk." Prizes were given to the scariest looking couple. Our Mothers club has become quite active this year. Among the gifts which we can thank them for are our newly acquired initiation robes, a television set, and many other articles which have been tremendously useful to us.

"Paintings on Parade," whereby characters from paintings paraded in poses suggesting their famous and infamous counterparts. Several farhers gathered for dinner at the chapter house in observance of Dads' Day January 14. The evening was highlighted by attendance at the· Oregon-Washington basketball game, in which our fellow Webfoots sou ndly trounced the opposing Huskies. An overwhelming majority of pledges and members attended the West Coast Conclave held at Oregon State College this year March 6-7. We are looking forward to a 600-mile trip to Gamma Chapter at the University of California next year.

Sigma

Sigma started the new semester with three "musts." We must obtain the money to move off the campus, we must have more parties, and we must have more new pledges. Parties we have had. We jumped off to a quick start with a fine party at Brother John D . Carroll's lake cabin in Lexington, S. C. This was followed by an informal dance at our chapter adviser's mother's home. This party was claimed to be one of rhe best ever on the Carolina campus. Our second must was accomplished when we got 12 new pledges after Spring rush season. Our chapter now totals 25 members and 37 pledges. With the help of local alumni our third objective is slowly being overcome. Thanks to Gettys Wood, president of the alumni house fund; Jim Wilson, district archon, and James Palmer, our chapter adviser, we hope to own our home off the campus next September. Sigma initiated five men into rhe chapter rhis March, with five more planning to go through in May. The new members are James ("Footsie") Behling, Charleston; Donal ("Slick") McDade, Union; Don Wilson, Columbia; Bill Moore, Van Wyck, and Ray Dabney, Rock Hill. Our basketball hopes lie in James · ("Doole") Muon, Florence, a campus leader whose average of 13.6 points per game is fourth best on the campus .. At our last party we bad the pleasure of presenting Miss Becky Godshall, Columbia, with roses. Congratulations to Brorher Jim Bailey, Walterboro. Russel Stokes, Florence, who graduated in February, has given a ring to Miss Jean Hannah, ·columbia. They plan to be married this Summer. -Bobby Sanders, Historian

Beta Iota

During freshman rushing, Beta Iota obtained 17 pledges. Their primary pledge project has been the remodeling of the basement. Highlighting the holiday season was our Christmas Formal. In addition to this, we entertained a group of 25 orphans at a Christmas Party with gifts for each child presented by "Santa Claus," Beta Iota alumnus, Bob Kuhlman. A record player was also presented to the Lutheran Children's Home. In an effort to formulate a Dads' Club, each brother was host to his dad at a Dads' Party at the chapter house March 12. This was an informal gathering, featuring a Pot-Luck Dinner. Bill Kroncke, an upperclass pledge, was formally initiated into the chapter March 1. He is a sophomore in the college of business administration. -Philip . Long, Historian 28
