Coe College Cedar Rapids, Iowa Dear Brother Jim: I was much interested in the last number of The Star and Lamp. I believe the name of Dr. A. Pelzer Wagener, professor at William and Mary College: and past president of Pi Kappa Phi, should be listed under "Education." Also, if I remember correctly, Henry McLemore, syndicated columnist of the column, "Sage and Spice," should be listed under "Press and Radio." ... I realize that the list given was not expected to be complete, and I hope that these suggestions will be understood as not given in a spirit of criticism. Most sincerely and fraternally, WILL E. EDINGTON, Upsilon '21 University of Illinois

369 West 51st fj· 1 New York 21, J•· Fellow Pi Kapps: A few months ago, while in Las Ve~ Nevada, I ran into a brother Pi Kapp who was in the Ah·· Chi Chapter with me. He (George Balais) was there to' married, and I had the honor to stand up for him at t time. I am field engineering supervisor with the W. L. Ma~ Corporation of New York City. ROY MYERS, Alpha Chi 'l University of Miami


Gainesville, P~9!1 September 7, Dear Jim: Chapter in reasonably good shape except for ~ power. The Army and the weddings took their toll. I eJ oD a maximum of 35 members to start with. The financial '~ clition is good. All the bills are paid, and we have eno~ money in the bank to fix up the house. We are giving 1 complete paint job in and out. Fraternally yours, ·~ RICHARD A. HILL, Archon Alpha Epsilon, University of Flotl

Otterbein, Ind. Dear Folks of The Star and Lanp: The unrecognized individual in the military-looking uniform in the August issue of The Star and Lamp is one Wade S. Bolt in the uniform of the Indiana State Department American Legion Band. The snap was taken by my daughter in the Fall of 1930 just preliminary to my take-off for Indianapolis where we boarded a special train for the National Legion Convention. It is beyond me to know how that particular snapshot got into the Iiles of the fraternity magazine, unless it was through a personal correspondence with some of the staff. It was not taken for publication in connection with any news item or report. Mrs. Bolt and I will be in Florida for December and January and (since for those two months we will be in a trailer camp near Bradenton) I have contacted the new chapter at Tampa University to learn if they anticipate celebrating Founders' Day. I'd love to be with them. Our route to Florida begins November 25th and takes us through Terre Haute, Ind.; Springfield, Ill.; Jacksonville, Ill.; Louisiana, Mo.; Jefferson City, Mo.; Fort Scott, Kans.; Coffeeville, Kans.; Ponca City, Okla.; Guthrie, Okla.; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Norman, Okla.; Gainesville, Texas; Texarkana, Tex.Ark. · Shreveport, La.; Natchez, Miss.; Mobile, Ala., and Tall~hassee, Fla., to Bradenton, where we will locate. Bully for Pi Kappa Phi. I'm not only for expansion but restoration. I'd love to see Tulsa, Oklahoma, Tulane, Michigan, and a lot of the others reinstated and added to the list. Fraternally and sincerely, WADE S. BOLT, Sigma '10 University of South Carolina

AN ORCHID FOR BETA LAMBDA Box 2007 University, Ala. Dear Brother Wilson: We received our copies of The Star and Lamp today and enjoyed it very much. Beta Lambda Chapter in Tampa certainly is a fine credit to our Fraternity. Fraternally yours, ALEX W. OLIVER Omicron, University of Alabama

Out Of The Past The news given below was gleaned from copies of

40 Years Ago "The two years following the convention of 1907 Bere critical ones for our fraternity," Lawrence p a!ry ~ixson, one of the founders of Pi Kappa hi, pointed out in "A History of Pi Kappa Phi," ~ubltshed in the November, 1915, issue of The tar and Lamp. "With but two chapters, and only abo.ut twenty men including both alumni and ac:uve members, the question of finances presented a. very serious problem, and many personal donation~ and sacrifices were made by certain ones for ~pecial objects and purposes that do not show up In financial statements and which will never be generally known. "The question of extension was a very important one, and it received much careful thought from the members of the Supreme Council." I The convention of 1909 was held in July at the sle of Palms, Charleston, S. C. Besides the Supreme Officers, the following members were pres~t: South Carolina Alpha, William Fogarty, H . P. agener, Kenneth E. Lowman, Paul E. Scherer; ;uth Carolina Beta, Gus E. Reid, J. S. McGregor, 路 W. Miller, J. F. Stuckey, Thomas W. Simpson, and California Gamma, Theodore B. Kelly. At this convention, it was decided that the fraternity would publish an official magazine. . The next convention was held July 4, 5, and 6 10 Columbia, S. C., and this one "was by far the largest and most enthusiastic gathering of Pi I<~ppas ever had up to this time," Mr. Mixson said. "The success of the Fraternity was now an as~ured fact, and the men planned and worked With confidence." Wade Smith Bolt, Sigma '10, University of ~outh Carolina, Otterbein, Ind., becomes editortn:chief of The Star and Lamp. (He served in thts capacity until 1920.) Manuel G. Quevedo, Iota '14, Georgia Tech, founds Kappa Chapter at the University of North Carolina. Mu Chapter is installed at Trinity College June lS, 1915. (Since that time Trinity has become Duke University.) Nu, University of Nebraska, moves into a 12toom house in November. 30 Years Ago Four chapters have new homes of their own: Nu, University of Nebraska; Omicron, University of Alabama; Psi, Cornell University, and Alpha Beta, Tulane University.

Thirteenth Supreme Chapter convenes in Chicago December 28, 29, and 30. Brother J. Chester Reeves, Alpha '15, College of Charleston, is elected Supreme Treasurer, succeeding the late Brother William Fogarty, Alpha. In an article entitled "Looking Forward," George Allen Odgers, Nu '1S, University of Nebraska, discusses the matter of expansion. He notes that in the February issue of The Star and Lamp Brother Shelley Sansbury, Omicron '21, suggested that 45 is the ideal number of chapters. He continues by saying that "to solidify and unite our southern and north-central states, we must enter Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas, and Iowa." Brother Joe Sewell, Omicron '20, is elected through popular vote as the greatest living athlete of Alabama, and by his selection earns a place in Alabama's Living Hall of Fame. Leo H . Pou, Omicron '21, in an article entitled "Another George," gives highlights from the career of George Allen Odgers, Nu '15, Methodist missionary in Calcutta, India. Brother Robert Gray Tate, Omicron '19, is appointed assistant attorney-general of Alabama. Pi Kapps at Camp McClellan, Anniston, Ala., for a six-week stay organize temporary chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. At 22, Brother L. Marion Gressette, Zeta '20, Wofford College, St. Matthews, S. C., becomes South Carolina's youngest state legislator. At end of football season, Kappa wins silver loving cup and the University of North Carolina intramural tag football championship. Alpha Gamma, University of Oklahoma, is represented in every sport by at least one letterman with the exception of tennis. 20 Years Ago Brother Leo Pou, Omicron '21, past National Secretary, has been recommended for appointment as first assistant United States district attorney of the southern Alabama district.

THERE WAS AN AIR of eager anticipation in the National Office as this issue of The Star and Lamp went to press, the excitement being caused by the approaching arrival of a new member of the Pi Kappa Phi family. The date of October 29 had been set for the arrival, and Beta Mu is the name that had been chosen for this 48th addition to the family. The big event was scheduled to take place at McNeese State College, Lake Charles, La. In chis environment of learning and culture, the young Beta Mu is expected to grow rapidly into full manhood. McNeese, which was a junior college, has been a four-year college for the past several years, the class of 1955 being che fifth graduating class since the college attained its new status. The college has a modern gymnasium, cafeteria, and fine arts building. Temporary scruccures soon to be replaced by permanent buildings are serving as improvised classrooms, laboratories, dormitories, infirmary, and student center, the May issue of the McNeese Alttmni News has pointed our. Now under construction is an $850,000 science building. Enrollment has climbed each year from a handful of students in 1944 to 1400. But still more important is the scholastic growth of McNeese.

ANOTHER PETITION has come to Pi Kappa Phithis one from the Lone Star State. The petitioning group is the Usonian Fraternity, one of the oldest fraternities on the University of Houston campus, Houston, Texas, and a charter member of the Interfraternity Council there. Considered as one of the top fraternities at Houston, it has always ranked within the top five scholastically. This local fraternity was founded in 1946 by a group of abour a dozen men. There are now about 40 members, headed by Anthony M. Romeo. The alumni group numbers more than 150. The annual social function is the White Rose Ball a formal banquet and dance held in the Spring. Th~ fraternity's flower is the white rose, and its colors are white and blue. Usonians participate in all school activities, including intramural athletics, Homecoming, and production of an outstanding show for the Frontier Fiesta, which is a University of Houston carnival of the Old West. The group ranked fourth scholastically among 14 fraternities on the campus last Spring, the rating for the semester being 1,206. "In the past," Mr. Romeo said, "we have had members who have held top student positions on the campus in other organizations. We also have members who at the present time are leaders in organizations to which they belong. Examples are the Interfraternity Council; University of Houston Alumni Association; the Cougar, student publication; the Frontier Fiesta Association; Pep Club; Student Association, which governs student body activities and organizations; Press Association, and the Univer~_ity Debate Team, which last year woo national honors. 5

Pearson, Alpha lora '26, Montgomery, Brother Jimmy Lee Burr, Alpha Iota '51, Wetumpka, Ala., and Prof. John A. Needy, Omega '24, Purdue, Alabama Polytechnic Institute. Nine Others Initiated Brother Perry was initiated April 21, along with the following nine men: Frank Awbery of Winder, Ga., who is a freshman in mechanical engineering; Allred J. Bell, Americus, Ga., a freshman in industrial management; Joe P. Braswell, Americus, a freshman in aeronautical engineering; Allen L. Moss, Columbus, Ga., a freshman in civil engineering; Wallace Jones, LaGrange, Ga., a sophomore in textile management; Fred C. Hole, Columbus, a freshman in mechanical engineering; Robert Donald Weaver, Birmingham, a freshman in aeronautical engineering; Charles E. Gavin, Columbus, a freshman in textile management; Bill Stevens, Columbus, a freshman in industrial management. The initiation of these men brought to 53 the number of brothers now at Alpha Iota. The initiation of our 500th brother is certainly an outstanding milestone in the history of this chapter. It brings to mind many of the outstanding happenings of 6

the past, and causes us to wonder about what the future holds in store for us. These thoughts were .rJ! beautifully incorporated into Brother Hawthorne's 10 spiring message char we are giving here the full te1' of his address : Honoree is Outstanding in High School "Brothers: Tonight is a great occasion in the aong]i of the history of Alpha lora Chapter of Pi Kappa Ph' We are here to honor Ray Allison Perry of Hurtsb~to­ Ala., the 500rh initiate in this chapter. It is befitrt0f that this honor should fall to Ray inasmuch as he «~: an outstanding member of his graduating class . a· Hurtsboro, having served as president of his graduattOf class, his 4-H Club, rhe school band, and also as editO' of his high school yearbook. Already he has raken pv place among the outstanding srudeors here at our .AlJI~ Macer. He was nor selected as the 500th initiate, b~' the honor happened co fall co him because of the d~'' of his being pledged; however, the chapter could not have had a more exemplary brother to honor. We ~ nor here just co honor Ray, however, but also co hotl the 499 members who are his predecessors in tit' g I chapter. Alpha Iota Chartered in 1926 "Now let us go back nearly 30 years. Two ](}6)' frar:rnities on ~e campus petitioned Pi Kappa I'~; Nattonal Frarerntry for a charter.

Imhotntately after the depression, the brothers rented the Stre e acr~ss from the Methodist Church on North Gay Wer:t·letng very ambitious, the leaders of the chapter hou ecermined that the time had come to have a brot~ of their own. During 1939 and 1940 our Order ers sacrificed breakfast for nearly rwo years in the to save enough money for a down payment on chalres.ent house. The college being very receptive to that ters owning their houses and very cooperative co up thnd, the brothers asked Brother Pearson to draw e plans.

All Called Into Service

A943, just one month after I was initiated, we

again a called into the Armed Forces, and the college seven came to our rescue and leased the house. With tepa . teen members we reopened the chapter in 1946, Withtnted and refurnished the house, and started pledging Spirit great success. Another event which reflects the requ of our chapter came in 1946 when our college Possibted . t~ac the fraternities make available every nece e hvmg accommodation. The boys bought the the ssa:y material, and by bard work night after night, "'hic~ttc of our home was made into living quarters, &rea Provided a place for 20 men. This is one of the l h test examples of teamwork in the fraternity that .•~e ever witnessed. fueur he past is read and laid away. What does the of y e ho.ld for the chapter and our members? Many in aou Will be leaving Auburn in June, and the ochers the .or two. If I could look back I would say that on tb ~Pptest days of my life were spent right here cepe ts campus. We muse not look back, however, exto remember that our forefathers have left us a






wonderful heritage. We can stand still and live on our laurels or we can rise to greater heights. Remember char many of our great leaders who founded chis country, such as Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, and many ochers, were young men, just a few years older chan you. Many of our young men of coday are in Congress, and the legislature, and are great writers, scientists, anises, musicians, and engineers..As long as our country stays a great free nation, there will be a Dr. Salk co cake the place of an Alben Einstein, a Bishop Sheen and Billy Graham co cake the place of John Wesley and Marcin luther. We muse each fight co retain our liberty and freedom. let us not be complacent .as were the Romans in the days of the Roman Emptre and lee our country sit by and defeat itself. Urges Resistance to Destructive Forces

"There are forces in this country coday which are crying co destroy our way of life. We muse combat these forces with all our might. Just lase year the New York Supreme Court upheld the banning of national fraternities from the stare-supported schools on the grounds chat 'social fraternities are detrimental to the educational environment at units of the stare universities.' I never thought that I would see the day when American citizens are prevented from having the oppormnity co organize. If a high court of our land can do chis, why can't it hold char the Westminster Fellowship, the Baptise Training Union, or the Wesley Foundation is detrimental to educational environment of che smdents. Where will the line be drawn?

"If the Communists on the various campuses can knock out the fraternities and sororities, and honor societies, chen it has a green light to go ahead and organize thought groups or literary societies. The fraternities are the greatest obstacles in the paths of these subversive groups. Again I repeat, when is chis going to cease? "It will cease only ~hen. we. Americans stand up and fight for what we thmk ts nghc, when men in high pl~ces. of our government .cease to be intimidated by mmor.tty elements and agam know: that being a great ~encan and scatesma~ and scandmg up for the right ts far greater than bemg the noblest and wisest of politicians. Calls For High Standard of Values

"lee us put fuse things fuse in preparing ourselves for the furore. I have cried co have a standard of values which I believe is true and which I can judge myself by from time to time. These are spirimal, mental, financial, and social. What is your standard of values? Sometimes when you come in .a t night and go to bed, just He there in the quiet and solace of your room and ask yourself the questions: How high am I up the ladder? What can I do ro make myself a better Christian a better citizen, a better brother? Think about it. Remember that you are indeed formnate in being in college: Are you going to make the most of your opportuntty? Ray, I say to you that you are representative of not only the m.embers of the past but also what you do, as representattve of our present members, will have a great bearing on the members of tomorrow." 7

FRIENDS IN TWO GEORGIA TOWNS joined efforts recently in expressing their appreciation of "Doctor Jack," Brother Sylvester Cain, Norcross, Ga. According to a story written by Edwina Davis and published in the Atlanta ]om·nal and Constittttion May 15, Dr. Cain, Pi '24, Oglethorpe University, entered Emory University Hospital March 1 for an operation for a ruptured stomach ulcer. After four weeks in the hospital, he spent several weeks recuperating in a friend's home in Florida. During his absence about 200 friends of his from Norcross and Duluth contributed time, labor, and money for the renovation of his office. A friend who helped with the endeavor, Allen Johnson, who owns and operates a general score near the doctor's office, explained: "The idea of doing the office over got started among some of Doctor Jack's buddies-then, it just sort of snowballed. Why, even the kids contributed-some of them gave a quarter, .fifty cents, and so on. Others donated materials and equipment and some volunteered to do the work." Major items in the renovation job were a new desk, air conditioner, sink and cabinet, hot water heater, furniture for the waiting room, a plant from the local florist, floor, ceiling, and draperies. The night of April 30, Doctor Jack climbed the seeps to his office for the first time since his illness. "My old key wouldn't work," he recalled. That proved to be a big joke among his friends because they had put in a new door, coo. Some of them followed the doccor up the seeps and gave him his new key. Once inside, he saw what they had been up to. On his new desk was a note signed simply, "Your many Friends." It read in part: "You have given yourself, your time, and your medical skills to the sick and needy around you, and we thought it about time for us to express our appreciation. Hence, willing and loving hands got busy in an effort to create a 'welcome home' atmosphere in your surroundings." Dr. Cain, who is m his early fifties, was born in Norcross. "Just over there," he said, waving his arm in the direction of the railroad cracks which run through Norcross. He was graduated from Emory University Medical School in 1925 and has practiced in Norcross since 1936. He was the first doctor on the staff of the Joan Glancy Memorial Hospital in Duluth.

Past National Presitlent Meisel Heatls Church Builtling Committee


THE TIME CHRISTMAS ARRIVES, Brother Albert W. Meisel, Alpha Xi '28, Brooklyn Poly· technic Institute, expects that his current "extra curricular" project will have been completed. This project is the construction of a new church for St. Paul's Episcopal Society of Riverside, the fastest growing section of the Town of Greenwich, Conn. Cost Exceeds Half Million Brother Meisel, who is a former National President of Pi Kappa Phi, is chairman of the Building Committee. During the past six years the committee has been engaged in building a new parish house and church edifice. The parish house was finished in 1953, and the church, provided no delays occur, will be completed by Christmas. The cost of these two buildings is close to 550,000, all of which money was raised in the community-wid1out assistance of money raising experts. Greenwich has about 40,000 inhabitants. The old church and parish house were constructed about 80 years ago and were frame. The new buildings are fire-proof, being of steel, brick, and concrete construction. Cornerstone Contains Historical Papers "The facilities of the new parish house have enabled us ro conduct a day school for nursery and kindergarten children," Brother Meisel said. "June 5 the cornersrooe was laid in the new church, and included in its cootents were some interesting hisrorical papers which were removed from the cornerstone of the old church. One of the interesting documents found in the old cornerstone was a copy of the local newspaper, the Stamford Advocate. The reading of an 80-year-old newspaper is always amusing, not only because of the news, but because of the bargains offered by the stores of the day. Living seemed a good deal cheaper in 1875 than it is today." 10

THE LAST TWENTY YEARS, Alpha Upsilon's annual Pi Kapp show has become one of the most well-known traditions at Drexel Institute. The twentieth show, entitled "Vice in Paradise," was presented November 19 and 20, 1954. A parody on Hollywood's standard shoot-'em-up western, it reversed the usual triumph-of-good-over-evil, ending with one in which the "baddies" win out over the "goodies." While making no attempt to moralize, "Vice in Paradise" was, nevertheless, lots of good clean fun. In fact, judging by all reports, few Pi Kapp shows of the past have enjoyed a more enthusiastic reception. Gasping . Gulch, the scene of this stirring epic of the Old West, is a small, dusty Texas town. The one gay spot in town is a saloon run by Black Bart Slade, a man whose honesty is not entirely above reproach. Not only is Slade the most powerful man in town financially, but it was common knowledge that he was also the fastest, surest shot in all the West. He and his hired gunmen ruled the town with an iron hand. An eastern dude gives Slade a tip that the Mississippi was shortly to be re-routed through Texas, thus making Gasping Gulch a seaport and a thriving community. Since this would send land values sky-high, Slade begins confiscating ranches at the point of a gun. Just as the situation seems hopeless, the hero arrives-a somewhat naive drifter by the name of Melvin Q. Upright. Melvin is approached by Lil, Slade's rejected girl friend, who tells him of the town's situatioo; whereupon Melvin rises to the occasion in true hero fashion and vows to rid the town of the scoundrel, Slade. loose Lil, the beautiful blonde bar-room singer, supplies the necessary feminine interest. She shrewdly loads Slade's guns with blanks, saving Melvin from being killed in a duel with Black Bare. Slade's men, thinking he has missed, desert him, and he is marched off to jail in disgrace.

"Vice in Paradise," the 20th annual show written and prO' 01 duced by Alpha Upsilon Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, Yi one of the biggest and best ever to be staged at Drexel lnstitul' of Technology. The two-act show took place deep in the heD~ of Texas in a "typical" western town, "Paradise." The sho-'• 1 which played to a near capacity crowd, has become an imporl 0 ~ part of the tradition and social life of the Pi Kapps at Ore••

Alpha Upsilon's success with its annual show ]!~! been no mere fluke. Six months of preparation ~~ into each production, preparation which includes ing the script and composing all the music. As s ol as classes are resumed in September, a number Drexel co-eds are carefully selected. Rehearsals cofll~ mence immediately and are held three nights a wee until the dates of the show arrive.


Lil has become infatuated with Melvin, who was the first man to treat her with respect, but Melvin is not susceptible to feminine charm and rides off. The men of the town, dissatisfied by the abolition of drinking and gambling brought about by the women of the cown upon Slade's demise, realize there is no longer a law enforcement authority in town, and they spring Slade from jail.

The idea of giving a show was born in Kappa Sigf11Delta, the local organization which later became .AI~h; Upsilon of Pi Kappa Phi, as a means of promorl3' fellowship and much-needed funds. It began in 19 h. as a minstrel show. Meeting with some success, r : 0 shows grew bigger and better; in 1936 a stroke • genius caused the introduction of girls in the cast. 'I'h~ boosted the popularity of the shows so tremendous.~ that in 1939, the minstrel theme was abandoned \ favor of musical comedy, in order co exploit berr', the talents of the co-eds. The show of that year ~~~f entitled "Get Into the Swing." By 1942, the Pi I(aP_ shows had become well established as the bigg~ fraternity event of the year at Drexel. Meeting 1 11 challenge, the Pi Kapps put on their first large-sc~ r musical comedy, "Arabian Nightmare," complete W11 a harem.

One of the highlights of the show was the presentation by Archon Bob Lambert of the 1954 Pi Kapp Sweetheart, Miss Millie Depman-the unanimous choice of the brothers.

ROLLINS, pastor of Reynolds Memorial Methodist Church, Bristol, Va., received the honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree from King College, a Presbyterian school, at the graduating exercises May 24 in Bristol, Tenn. Dr. R. T. L. Liston, president of the college conferred the degree. The citation was as follows : "To the Rev. William Rathmell Rollins, as an outstanding churchman and distinguished citizen and civic leader, this honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity is presented from King College, Bristol, Tenn." In notifying Brother Rollins of the honor to be besrowed, Dr. Liston said : "I need not assure you of the pleasure which I take in transmitting to you this invitation. Your service to the community, your leadership in every good word and in every good work among us have been noted and appreciated by many of your friends, including some of us who cannot share the honored mantle of John Wesley. We are glad that King College has the opportunity to speak for this community in offering you this well deserved tribute." (Contim1ed on Page 16) 15

Rho, W&L, Alumnus Is President of Firm AMONG THE PROMINENT ALUMNI of Rho Chapter, WashingtOn and Lee, is Stanley M. Rowland who was initiated in 1929. Since September 25, 1953, he has been president and a directOr of the American Hide and Leather Company, a firm with which he h::ts been associated for about 18 years. In giving highlights of his adult life, Mr. Rowland said: "Family responsibilities, financial difficulties, and attendance at W & L were a combination that I could not cope with. So I left coiiege and went tO work. Later I completed my college education at BostOn University and at Northeastern University's Evening Division. However, I still have a multitude of fond memories of W & L and Rho Chapter. "My immediate family currently includes one wife, Margot; two daughters, Lucinda and Nancy, aged 12 and 8, respectively; one boxer dog, named Baron; one cat, named Foggy, three turtles that I cannot teii apart; two hamsters, Peerette and Pete. The word currently applies to Peerette. "I first became associated with the American Hide and Leather Company in 1937 as assistant tO the chief engineer and purchasing agent. Except for Naval Service during 1943-44-45, I have been continuously associated with this company since 1937. I was a diligent young lad (my boss saw tO that) and became chief engineer in 1940. After I returned from World War II, I was given the additional responsibility of creating a research and development division. In 1952 I was elected vice-president in charge of development and production and was elected president in September, 1953. "During the p::tst few years my morale has frequently been devastated by people who ask, "What is the American Hide and Leather Company?" So to be on the safe side, I will tell you a little bit about our company. We are generaJly classified as tanners of "Upper Leather" . .. leather for the uppers of shoes. We also produce leather for handbags, hat bands, some types of leather cases, and for many misceJianeous uses. We operate two tanneries and normally employ about a thousand people. We can tan about 50,000 calf skins and 50,000 cattleskins a 1nonth. "We seJI our products everywhere except tO those countries behind the Iron Curtain, and we import raw hides and calfskins in varying quantities . . . usuaiiy about one third of our requirements. - - - - -'T r'Kcp·-----

DOCTOR JACK'S11 SURPRISE (Contimtett /t·om Page 9)

Mrs. C. M. Parsons, Jr., said: "DoctOr Jack helped us get started when the hospital-clinic was in an old house. He came over two or three times a week to hold office hours." Doctor Jack is directOr of the Bank of Norcross, bur he doesn't take much part in civic affairs. Mrs. Parsons explained this. "He's too busy being ~ doctOr.

Two District Archons Are Honored Recently }NFORMATION has been received that two district archons were honored recently. They are Brother J. AI Head, Alpha Zeta '33, Oregon State College, who heads District XIX, and Brother Donald S. Payne, Omega '32, Purdue, who heads District XI. Brother Head was honored September 10 when the

\Xrestern Association of State Highway Officials, at its annual meeting at Jackson l ake lodge, Moran, Wyo., Presented him the Dr. l. I. Hewes Award for 1955. Brother Payne has been chosen president of the Central Indiana Chapter of the American Institute of Industrial Engineers. He is an industrial engineer for the Ross Gear & Tool Company. His address is 338 S. Chauncy, Wesr lafayette, Ind . The award which went to Brother Head, who is with the Oregon State Highway Department, is given ann_ually to a highway engineer in the West in recognition of an outstanding contribution tO highway developrnent.

~he particular phase of Brother Head's work upon ~.htch this award was based was his analysis of urban 11 ghway problems and the preparation of reports per-

raining to these problems, and specifically, in June of 1955, Brother Head completed the study of the "Freeway and Expressway System, Portland Metropolitan Area," which is Oregon State Highway Department Technical Report No. 55-5. Mr. R. H. Baldock, State Highway Engineer, in his letter to the Western Association of State Highway Officials, stated, in recommending Broth~r Head . for the award, that "the long-range plannmg of htghway development in urban areas is undoubtedly the most complex and difficult task confronting the highway engineer. The work which Mr. Head has done in this field is outstanding, both in the s~archinl$ analysis of the data and in the clear presentation eas1ly understandable by the general public who are so vitally concerned with such matters. The outstanding service which Mr. Head has rendered tO the development of the traffic engineering phase of highway engineering eminently qualified him for consideration for the Dr. l. I. Hewes Award." In addition to the recognition, the award includes a 500 cash award and an appropriate plaque. The award was instituted and funds provided by Western Constrttction a civil-engineering-construction publication of the West. ---------rrK¢---------

West Lafayette, Ini

ORCHIDS FOR WILSON AND BETA LAMBDA Tucson, Arizona Dear Brother Wilson: It was a great thing for Pi Kappa Phi, getting the Beta Lambda Chapter at Tampa. From what we have heard, they are a fine group of men. We need many more such chapters, and I believe with the spirit and enthusiasm you are putting into your expansion program it will not be long before we shall have them. The brothers here at Beta Theta are most enthusiastic, and we want you to know that we are right behind you and are willing to help in any way we can. We would especially like to see some new chapters here in the Southwest. Another year has drawn to a close, and I believe that Beta Theta Chapter has had one of its best years yet, with the promise of a bigger and better one next Fall. Fraternally yours, HARRY A. SLEFKlN, JR., Archon Beta Theta Chapter, University of Arizona

RHO ALUMNUS PLEDGES SUPPORT TO WILSON 4321 Verplanck Place, N. W . Washington 16, D. C.

Urbana, J/1. ]tme 1, 1955 Dear Brother Wilson : We have very active mothers' a~; fathers' organizations. They have taken a very active part./ the chapter's future and have given us some very nice gl t>· including a deep freeze. The members of Upsilon have given me very wonderfu: cooperation during the semester which I have cried to 1~~ the chapter. My main wish for the chapter is that we co\1 pull that scholarship up. If we could, I know we would be 0 the Master Chapter section of the rating sheet. But all I <' say is, The brothers realize this and are really crying. . I hope I will be able to see you some of these days, J~ Lots of luck on expansion and your too often thankless job executive secretary. I remain, fraternally yours, LARRY H. MILLER, Ar~h~ Upsilon, University of JLhO
