40 Years Ago

John D . Carroll, Grand President, predicts that the next year is "going to be the biggest and best Pi Kappa Phi has ever had." The fraternity is 12 chapters strong. Kappa Chapter was installed at the University of North Carolina November 14, 1914. Under the heading, "Convention Dors: " "We have it from good authority that one man will demonstrate how you can attend college and get married at the same time." "We have been reliably informed that the married members will leave their new additions at home. We mean the 'Baby Grands.' " Nu Traces Roots to 1876

Nu Chapter, which was chartered at the University of Nebraska October 22, traces its hiscory back to September 29, 1876, when the Union Literary Society was organized. Four of the members of Pi Gamma Theta, the organization that became Nu Chapter, are members of the University Union. University Union is an outgrowth of the Union Literary ~ociety. 20 Years Ago

collegiate Newspaper Association with a Fall convention. The National Council, meeting in Richmond, Va., makes decision co move the Central Office from Evanston, Ill., to Richmond. This move was made so that the headquarters would be in a more central location with reference to chapter distribution and so organized and placed as to bring the greatest possible savings in the overhead of operation. The Beta Psi Fraternity at Illinois Institute of Technology affiliates with Pi Kappa Phi, becoming Alpha Phi Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. Cover of October issue carries a picture of the National Office in Richmond, Virginia. Supreme Chapter plans to hold national convention in Seattle, Wash. The convention is returning for its second convention there. The first time was in 1921. The first of appointments as residential chapter advisers goes to J. L. Zwingle, who will attend the graduate school of Cornell University and assist the chapter there. His major work will center in tutorial assistance, direction of chapter educational programs, and development of internal organizatipn along lines usually overlooked by chapters in their concentration on the major matters of the chapter.

You Want to Join a Fraternity? COLLEGE COVERS a span of life that holds tremendous possibilities for the development of an individual's personality. People of any age develop best in a congenial, stimulating atmosphere, and this is especially true of young men in their late teens and early twenties. The fraternity chapter, with its carefully chosen men, supplies this environment. Enjoyment Depends on Participation

Enjoyment of any organization depends on what one puts into it. You alone can decide whether you wish to become a part of a close-knit group, where it is necessary to give as well as to take, both for your own good and the good of the group. The beautiful Sea of Galilee, from time immemorial, has been a pleasant place, providing nourishment for soul and body. The Dead Sea, through these same ages, has been an unpleasant part of the country in which it is located. Although it receives fresh water constantly, it gives nothing of the sweetness it receives, and instead of serving as a channel for the giving of refreshment to other areas, it finally loses the good that it endeavors to hold. One Learns Workings of Democracy

So it is with fraternity life. In this way of life one learns, first hand, the workings of democracy. He accepts the restrictions as well as the privileges of the organization. He learns to work with the group, in making decisions in the chapter meetings and in participating in chapter projects and events. Pi Kappa Phi Offers Brotherhood

What does Pi Kappa Phi offer you? It offers you brotherhood, and, in turn, expects brotherhood from you. Within the "Pi Kapp" brotherhood you will find a close, compact group of college men who have the same common interests which produce a spirit that can truly be called fraternal. The fraternity offers you a happy, congenial atmosphere, and it expects you to share the responsibilities of maintaining this atmosphere. Member Assumes Responsibility

The chapter offers you the pleasures of a varied social program. When you become a member of the fraternity, you assume a responsibility for making these events a success. The fraternity participates in many campus activities. Here too you take your share of the responsibilities. What of scholarship? A man's reason for being in college is to avail himself of the educational opportunities offered. The chapter will help you make the most of these opportunities. The chapter strives to maintain a high scholastic average. If you would share in the honor of attainment, you must share in the building of the 4

average. The average will go up or down, according tO what you bring to it. Founders Had Common Interest

It was their common interest in these various fields that resulted in the banding together of our three founders, Simon Fogarty, Harry Mixson, and Andre~ Kroeg, tO form the first Pi Kappa Phi chapter at the College of CharlestOn, CharlestOn, S. C., in 1904. Esse?· rially Southern for many years, rhe fraternity sreadtll expanded in rhe late twenties until ir was geographicall) represented over rhe entire nation. Pi Kappa Phi's national organization is ideally .ar· ranged wirhour being roo centralized. The governtO~ body of rhe fraternity is the N ational Council, which 1f elected every two years by the national convention our organization. This council is composed of five pro~: inenr alumni members, and they set the general polictfl of the fraternity.


Chapter Achievement Recognized

Master Chapter Certificates are awarded co thost chapters which maintain barring averages of 300 or rnorc during the school year. The chapters are rated by dle National Office. Scholarship Certificates and Pendanll are awarded to Pi Kappa Phi's top scholars. The scholar· ship of the fraternity is supervised by a national scholar· ship committee. The President's Plaque is awarded an· nually to the chapter having the best publication. The fraternity offers you many things. Fraternity Ji{t will be a happy or an unhappy experience for yo~ depending largely on how you react to it and on bO~ much you give to ir. As with the Sea of Galilee, the beauty and the swe~t· ness that comes into your life through the fraternt~ must be passed on to others or it cannot remain you!) For surely what one sends intO the lives of ochers coJ11e! back into his own.

"Why I Pledged Pi Kappa Phi"

"Why I Joined Pi Kappa Phi"

TBERE ARE MANY REASONS why I pledged Pi c .Kappa Phi, but I shall give only a few of what I bonsJder the most important. I pledged this fraternity fecause I saw the chance to associate with some of the thtn~st boys on this campus; boys who will go our of he1r way to help you or to speak ro you. Many boys of 0 :, er fraternities on the campus are indifferent about b lether you join their fraternity or another, while each rocher p 1· K appa p h1· roo k a genu me · · · t11e1r · wrerest m Prasp ecrtve · pledges.

JT ALL ~TARTED b~ck before _rush season .as I began co thwk about wh_JCh fratermty I would hke co join. I knew all along that Jt would be one of three fraternities, and I could not decide on which one was best for me. I decided to wait till I got my bids and then decide.

rours :oJ1leS

it Another reason is because Pi Kappa Phi provides a sdmembers with a "second home." You become strong s n good friends with the brothers and other pledges, that they become a "second hmily" to you. Every0 ane becomes interested in the same things and everyn~e Works for the betterment of himself and the frarerf lty. I saw that each member of the fraternity had set ot himself a high set of standards and ideals which he Strove of b to keep pace with as best he could. I saw a group n oys who were leaders, each in his own way, bur everrheless, leaders who could lead if necessary.


p I believe I am right in all these reasons, and it can be s roved by the fact that about 17 other boys saw the ame thing l!-S I before they pledged Pi Kappa Phi. LA




A Recent Pledge

Then came rush week, and it seemed as if you (one being rushed) were the most popular boy on the campus. Everyone from these three fraternities came co me and said they would like to have me in their fraternity. I went co my first smoker during rush week and was amazed at what a fraternity had to offer. Everything seemed co make this the best for me. Then I went to the second smoker. This happened to be the Pi Kappa Phi Smoker, and I found it too had much to offer. I looked around, and I was surprised to see that they had a.national office representative present at what appeared co me to be such a little affair. As soon as I got the chance, I went over co talk to this fellow, whom I found out co be Mr. Jim Wilson. He seemed to be very interested in this fraternity and the boys whom the fraternity were rushing. I talked with him for about two hours, in which we discussed many things of interest to me. One of the things we discussed was the building of a new fraternity house. He assured me that if the others decided to build a house on the plan 5

which rhe school had laid our ro the fraternities, rhar Pi Kappa Phi would have one along with the rest of them. We talked of the way the national office handles its money and where the money goes. I found this ro fit my liking, but as yet I was not sure I wanted to join this fraternity. I left the smoker still trying to make up my mind. Finally I attended my last smoker, and it roo seemed to offer much. I found out that most of my close friends also received bids from these three fraternities, and I knew I would like to be in the fraternity they joined. This left me with two things to consider: which way my friends were going and if this was the best fraternity for me. Well I did not ger much sleep that night for thinking the next day I had to make my choice. The next morn-

ing I still had not made up my mind, and just before rime to sign up, I found out my closest friends were going Pi Kapp. This left only one thing lacking, and that was to see if this was the best fraternity for rne· I thought it over and began to think about all the things I discussed wirh Mr. Wilson. I knew I wanred tO help build a new fraternity house since all the frarerd nities were going to build, and I knew then I woul like working with a man like Mr. Wilson at the front office. With Pi Kappa Phi holding all the aces I sa~ at once that there was no other way for me ro go except Pi Kapp. I have never regretted it one moment and I am proud to say I am a Pi Kapp.

McNeese, Central Michigan Groups To Become Pi Kapps Soon THE

NATIONAL COUNCIL of Pi Kappa Phi has approved the petitions of Delta Pi Phi, local fraternity at McNeese State College, Lake Charles, La., and Sigma Beta Tau, local fraternity at Central Michigan College, Mr. Pleasant, Mich. September 17 has been set as the date for the installation of the chapter at McNeese as the 48th chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. Although the exact date for the installation of the chapter at Central Michigan College has not been set, it is anticipated that it will take place in the early part of December.

McNeese was begun officially in 1938 when the Louisiana state legislature provided for the establishment of a junior college in Lake Charles as an adjunct to Louisiana State University. In the Summer of 1940 the name was changed to John McNeese Junior College in tribute to that pioneer educator of the area in which the college is located. McNeese is now a four-year college, the class of 195 5 being the fifth graduating class 10

since the college attained four-year status. Sigma Beta Tau was formed in 1947 and was re· cognized shortly thereafter by the Student Senate, bY the student social activities committee, and by President Anspach of Central Michigan College. From its ve!l' beginning, this local has been noted for its high schO· lastic standing-it has always held first or second place on its campus. During the past few years, it has beeP noted also for its variety of social and interfraternitl' activities, formal dances, interfraternity sports, ho!Ile· coming week festivities, and other campus activitieS· "Delta Pi Phi and Sigma Beta Tau are both out· standing local fraternities on their own campuses," 13$' ecutive Secretary James M. Wilson has declared. "TheY are composed of the type of men we find in all ou! chapters. We are confident that these chapters will make a fine contribution to Pi Kappa Phi, and that Pi KapP~ Phi, in turn, will bring much to them. Pi Kappa Ph' welcomes Delta Pi Phi and Sigma Beta Tau into thC brotherhood." THE STAR AND

Activities at Beta Lambda in Tampa By RONALD DRISTLE, Historian Beta lambda, University of Tampa

JN CLOSING OUR FIRST semester as Pi Kapps, and this being our initial story in The Star and Lamp, we would like, first, to thank all of the chapters throughout the country, whose warm welcome has made us feel the great spirit of fellowship, so strongly pronounced in Pi Kappa Phi. We of the Beta Lambda Chapter, Universiry of Tampa, will do our best to become worthy of the great trust you have placed in us. We also wish to thank the chapters and alumni for all the wonderful gifts and congratulatory telegrams. They will be cherished possessions as long as our chapter exists. The choosing of our Rose Queen, Miss Marie Frances ( "Sally") Wolfe, as the National Rose was a great honor. She is a wonderful girl and in the past few years has helped our chapter immensely. All the fellows of Beta Lambda will agree that a more beautiful or worthy Rose would have been hard to pick.

National Rose Marie Frances ("Sally") Wolfe is ready for c swim.

National Rose Honored at Installation

On the occasion of the installation of the Tampa Alumni Chapter July 9, a beautiful trophy was presented to our new National Rose, Miss Sally Wolfe. The granting of the alumni charter to Tampa will bring together over cwo hundred brothers residing in this area. Much of the credit for the fine work done by the alumni must go to Brother David C. Pinholster, the new alumni prexy. Through the hard work of this outstanding group, our advance into a National Fraternity of the highest calibre was made possible. The Gardenia Ball on June 2 climaxed the social season for the university. It was agreed that due to the planning of the function by Brother Ray Yvars, it was one of the smoothest run affairs in the 22-year history of the event. Graduating Seniors were honored at a party June 1 at the 116th Field Artillery N. C. 0. Club. Ray Yvars was the Master of Ceremonies. The Seniors honored were Brothers George Grant, Dean Goldsmith, Mike Capitano, Clint Meadows, Kayo Royal, Jim Berfield, Charles Fisher, William York, Bill Dial, Ray Griffin, Manual Linares, Robert Philon, and Herb Vater. The first edition of the Beta Lambda Spartan, edited by Brother Fisher, hit the streets June 1 and was met with enthusiastic acclaim from all the members and alumni. Capitano Elected Outstanding Member

Mike Capitano was elected as the first outstanding member of Beta Lambda. Mike, besides working wholehearted ly for the chapter, found time for an array of other activities. Mike was mentioned in "Who's Who in American Colleges;" named Best All Around in the Senior Class Notables; made the Hall of Fame for activities, and was a member of the Future Teachers of America, Pi Delta Epsi lon, national journalism fraternity, and Alpha Phi Omega, national service fraternity. After completing this banner year, the officers and brothers are looking forward to the challenge of an even greater year in '56. The chapter officers who will keep their positions next semester are Jesse Davis, archon; Eugene Yates, treasurer; Joseph Hewlett, secretary; Ronald Drisde, historian; Raymond Wagner, warden, and William Bosworth, chaplain.

Beta Lambda. I have watched with interest and satJS" faction the growth and development of the FraternitY under the wise guidance and able leadership of National President Houser. With him at our head, continued prog路 ress is certain. As a Floridian, even though of recent vintage, I am happy to see another chapter of Pi Kappa Phi established in our state, especially as Beta Lambda is practically on my doorstep. I would remind you, cbe youngest of my brothers, that the ceremonies of the lase cwo days have made you, to borrow the words of tb_e Apostle, St. Paul, 'citizens of no mean city.' See to that you do all in your power to promote its glory an good name and that in your personal lives you con路 tinue worthy of the citizenship with which you have been endowed.

"~ t is a truism-almost a cliche--that we are living in

· times. The fact was emphasized last June at Willosr every college commencement in the land and this ~ou~tless be trumpeted forth on similar occasions ill prmg. The dangers which confront us are not ba~:el~ ph~sical ones, such as the hydrogen bomb and b enologiCal warfare, but those even more alarming ;cause insidious which threaten co undermine our ar orale and destroy our ethical standards. Our enemies fr e nor only the Red and his fellow-traveler but also tr~Tiuenrly 'they of our own household.' We are conTh/d by. pressure groups and led, or misled, by slogans. fro lr actions stem from the heart or the pocket-book or at' rn hopes of the ballot-box rather than from considersutons of law or reason. In their zeal to remedy the ri:~osed wrongs of the minority, they disregard the du ts of the majority and trample those of the indivife a1 under foot. By their ill-considered efforts in dethnse of freedom, they bid fair co destroy rhe very thing in~: ~rofess co protect. Words such as honor, loyalty, th .&rtty, freedom, and democracy seem co have lost sr:lr ancient meanings. The legislatures of forry-eighr i~ res a~d the national Congress are so busily engaged of creattng new statutory crimes-the mala prohibita it J;~_Jawyers-cbat even the best-intentioned of us find law 1 tcult to remain within the narrow confines of the Wh · 1 confess that I am puzzled and bewildered when u at has been legal and right for more than three~v:~t~rs of a century suddenly becomes unconstitutional nJghr-but so, I suspect are our so-called leaders. Fraternity System Affected

"I . aff Wtsh I could say that the fraternity system is unar ecred by all this flux and confusion, but we ourselves te~ un~er arrack and in order co survive may have co lea Ponze or even to compromise. For the moment, at "" st, especially in our publicly supported institutions, ofe ~e vulnerable co the buffets of chose most intolerant fr a I c~usaders, the pleaders for tolerance. The American thaterntty system which has no counterpart anywhere in in e W~rl?, is a century and three quarters old. Cherishbeg ongmally philosophic or literary objectives, it has d/n through many vicissitudes. At times it has been th tven underground, bur it has always emerged stronger haan ever. Anything which has so long survived must se!ve some intrinsic merit, and today the educators thema! Ves recognize us as an integral part of the educationen Process with much to contribute both to the developcaenr of the individual student and to the life of the tnpus. in ··~hat is the part of the individual fraternity man ~ this? Some years ago at a Convention banquet ""artonal President Meisel defined the fraternity as a bray of life-a way for each of us. The newly initiated Thther may well ask in the words of the Apostle cid0 lllas, 'How can we know the way?' It is not by acG ~nt that our fraternities bear Greek names. The fl~ de~ Age of Greece represents the most splendid \\> wermg of the human spirit. To be sure, their science g ~ elementary and crude, and they had none of the ~·1 ~eery which clutters our lives, but in matters of the th n they have never been excelled·. In the ideals of \\>at age will be found the answer to the question. There ere two guiding principles in Greek thought. The first


() ~ PI


was the exaltation of the beautiful and its identification with the good. 'To kalon kai to agathon;' how often do we find that combination in Greek writing. The truly good could not fail to be beautiful nor the truly beautiful good. The second principle was that of the Golden Mean-moderation in all things. Excess meant a lack of proportion and that, in turn, an impairment of beauty. Outlines Pattern for Living

"With these ideals before us, it behooves each of us co labor as best he may to make of his life not so much a material success but a work of art, consistent, proportioned, shapely, and beautiful. Just as secular education is based on the 'three R's,' so in the realm of the spirit, three R's are essential to the successful carrying our of our task. In this day of blatant advertising and selfadvertising, of public confession and a willingness to unbosom ourselves to every chance acquaintance, when privacy is little sought and hard to come by, we would do well to practice the first of these R's, reticence. Let up keep at least some small area to ourselves, excluding even those nearest and dearest to us, some secret place where, like Jacob, we may wrestle with the angel. This same reticence should restrain us from all efforts to pry unduly into the affairs of others. The second R is reverence in a somewhat wider sense than the word usually conveys. It includes a respect for the past and its traditions, but no slavish idolatry, an appreciation of others as individuals, and an acknowledgement of their rights to their opinions however much they may differ from our own, an eagerness to pay tribute to honesty and integrity wherever we may find them. The third and most difficult is repose. Here, if anywhere, we must seek the Golden Mean. Not roo much repining or selfpity in adversity, not roo much jubilation in the hour of our triumph, but whatever the outward circumstances to remain captain~ of our souls. Being human, of course, we shall fall, bur each defeat should only spur us on to new endeavors. After all, it is not so much the achievement as the struggle that ennobles. "And if at the end, when we approach the gates of the Chapter Eternal, we can truthfully say: 'I have done my best, I have striven faithfully to live up to the ideals of the Fraternity, I have followed the gleam,' we shall have been good citizens and worthy Pi Kapps."

Tampa's Student Body President Plans Career In Public Relations "UNCERTAIN" is the way Brother Jim Berfield, Beta Lambda, last year's student body president at the University of Tampa, described his plans for the future when he was interviewed recently. He pointed our that he shares with other June graduates the obligation for military service and that this creates his uncertainty. However, after he fulfills this obligation, he wishes to attend law school and obtain a law degree. Then he would like to go into either labor relations or public relations. Brother Berfield attended Alfred University in his freshman year. Here he was a member of the Student Senate and the Commerce Club. He entered the University of Tampa in 1952 and became a member of Sigma Kappa Nu in the Spring of 1953. In his junior year he was elected president of the Junior Class and also parking commissioner. In his senior year he was elected president of the Student Body and Student Senate, president of the Florida Intercollegiate Student Government Association, and selected for listing in "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities," was named a Senior Class Notable, and was named to the Hall of Fame at the University of Tampa. He was a member of the Baptist Student Unioa. ------~K¢-------

Stetson Student Body


n n


Spring elections at Stetson University brought the student body presidency to Brother Ralph Chandler, Chi, a junior history major from Pensacola, Fla. At Pensacola High he held the same post.

si p



He entered Stetson in the Fall of 1952 and pledged Pi Kappa Phi in October of that year. He was president of the freshman class. He was named outstanding pledge when he became a member of the fraternity in February, 195 3. In September of that year he transferred to George Washington University in Washington, D. C., planning to enter State Department employment as his vocation. He returned to Stetson in June, 1954, to complete his undergraduate work, preferring the more "provincial" life of the Stetson campus ro the transient atmosphere of the capital. In April of this year he was chosen as Chi's candidate for president of the Stetson student body. He won by some 200 votes. While at Stetson he has maintained a better than "B" average. In May he was the recipient of the Walter E. Hays prize of $200 for his essay, "Free Enterprise and the American Way of Life." He is the son of Dr. and Mrs. William Davis Cawthorn of DeFlemish Springs, Fla., and is married to the former Shirley Sue Swarthout of Philadelphia. They have a daughter, Rebecca, 14 months old. 24

It seems that he (Dammit III) has a boxer enemy in the Sigma Chi mascot down the street. A word of warning: If you go to Omega, be prepared to be challenged at the door. Jim learned the hard way. Dammit seems to hold the position of assistant warden of the chapter. He runs a "taut ship" (This term was picked up from the former rear admiral, J.M.W.)

Memberships: Phi Eta Sigma, freshman scholastic; Delta Sigma Pi, business administration professional; Squires, local sophomore honorary; Scabbard and Blade (while an NROTC student); Spades, local senior honorary, and Omicron Delta Kappa, honorary leadership fraternity. Sailboat racing is his chief hobby. His scholastic average is 2.3 (on a 3.0 basis). Alpha Theta, Michigan State College, is planning a trip to the University of Indiana next Fall for a football game between the two schools.

Alpha Xi copped the Interfraternity Council Bowling Trophy, thanks to the team headed by Captain Fred Esposito. Alpha Theta at Michigan State honored Eino Reini as the outstanding pledge of the Winter pledge class. Jerry Pearson was awarded the gavel traditionally given to the outgoing archon. In the scholastic rating for Winter term, Alpha Theta ranked second only to Farmhouse, out of the 27 fraternities on campus. The chapter defeated Theta Xi in baseball and won the trophy for being best. in two out of three in football, basketball, and baseball. Treasurer Rex Morin was recognized by the university for being eighth out of 40,000 to complete basic college with a four-point average.

Congratulations go to Bob Robinson, Beta Alpha, Newark College of Engineering, for acquiring a wife June 19. The welcome mat goes out for Aldo Andreoli, Martin Honan, William Kowalski, Theodore Laffey, and Henry Ott who became members June 13. Another trophy has gone on the chapter mantel, this one for a perfect record of ten victories and no defeats. Congratulations. Alpha Omicron, Iowa State College, welcomed nine new members this Spring: Larry Burkett, Dave Duda, Phil Dvorak, Phil Johnson, Darrell Kokemiller, Bob Kroon, James Mumford, Ken Nimmo, and Don Somers. A flock of trophies attest to the quality of Alpha Omicron's participation in wrestling, football, volleyball, bowling, and baseball during the past year. The chapter's Union Varieties Skit brought a trophy too. This Spring's A/micron featured a story by jet ace, Captain Harold Fischer, imprisoned by the Red Chinese and since released. Captain Fischer told of life in an enemy prison camp, including his reflections concerning Alpha Omicron.
