Though our objecti?ns :Viii be as a ripple in the sea of turbulent em?t10nalrsm, we nevertheless object to the recent trend m some areas of confusing social rights with civil rights. It is not hard to understand why non -collegiates attack an exclusive collegiate institution and, while not pleasant to read, it is als? na~ral for these critical comments to come forth wrrtten In a low-brow, quite outspoken kind of way. It becomes harder to appreciate groups that crusade against fraternities by using distorted "battle cries." But these things are not ~ew and_ will conti?ue as long as there are those who wrsh to strr up emotronal issues.

What has become a source of concern lately, however, has been the position some pressure groups have taken. Recent legislative attempts in one of the 48 states not only would have affected fraternities, but also the right of student church members from being in a recognized student organization of their church. We would certainly defend the position that every step be taken to offer to a student as many groups as possible so that one of them fills the need of every type of student, but the emotional side of recent developments has certainly blinded some more practical thinking. There is one school now at which it has been announced that any student who chooses to become a rushee is "guaranteed" a bid from one of the fraternities on campus-apparently regardless of social adjustment problems, religion, background, or what have you. It will be a sad day if social rights are to be dictated by Jaw anci that being an intrepratation of civil Jaw. -g. e.

Out of the Past



Editor, The Star and Lamp 1915-1920

WHAT were the events of forty years ago?

What may we, the oldsters of forty years ago, evaJuate as the reward for our fears, the culmination of our hopes, the result of our hampered efforts-by virtue of the limitations imposed on an infant Fraternity catapulted into the maelstrom of war? Ours was a Fraternity of a great preponderance of undergraduates, with regard to alumni. Less than thirteen years since the founding, we possessed three inactive chapters (Delta, Sigma, and Theta), totaling some sixty alumni obligated only by a firm-rooted loyalty to the national ~rganiz~­ tion . Our undergraduate chapters were thtrteen 10 number-among whom we could enumerate some five hundred Pi Kapps, undergraduate and alumni. Gamma (100); Alpha, Eta and Iota (60 each); Nu (50); Epsilon (40) ; Zeta (35); Kappa and Lambda (30 each); Mu, Xi, and Omicron (20 each). As you view that appraisal, and, aJthough approximate, it is dose to accuracy, one may interp.ret the sober thoughts, the worries and fears whtch confronted the Founders, the Council, the National Officers, and the inspired and moving s~irits of a majority of the membership not therem represented. Here we were, faced with this and that person of authority dropping his mantle to answer t~e call to the colors of his country. Letters posted m the hope of obtaining a successor often were returned to the sender because of a change of address, or, if deliverable by forwarding, the addres-

see was found to be likewise in some branch of the armed forces of his country. On this day, as we gathered our notes for a message to our beloved Fraternity, we d1anced to faJl upon words written by men of present day wisdom and high standing. Lord Dunsany, soldier, poet, and author, who died recently in Dublin, said: "-nothing is final, no loss irreparable, and the future cannot be dimmed by past glories." And further: "-everyone's future is, in reality, an urn full of unknown treasures from which all may draw unguessed prizes." Alexander de Seversky said : "I respect an.d admire tradition. I value the importance of esprit de c01·ps. But, when these fine heritages interfere with human progress- ! feel that we must have the moral courage to relegate them to the nostalgic past." As we have read and reread those quotes we have aJmost been converted to a realization that we have been wrong in our evaluation of the present-day Pi Kappa Phi and have failed to see the inevitable change whid1 has been wrought in the individual member of our Order.

We may have failed, personally, to meet the conditions and principles. We may not have emerged from the experiences of the past forty years as broadened in concept and principle. Since we are to be allotted three more assignments, we hope we may then give a more personal evaluation to the men and events during World War One. co




At the organizational meeting of Pi Kappa Phi alumni held at the Dallas Hotel, Dallas, Texas, October 8, 1957, Judge Julien C. Hyer, County Court at Law 2, Records Building, was elected president. Plans were formulated for future meetings to be held the first Tuesday of each month. Other officers chosen were Brother C. Grady Cates, Jr., 9747 Hines Blvd., vice-president; Brother Lowell S.

How to Be Successful?



-uYou Can't Euer Tell''

SOME FOLK work too much and some play too mud1 for their own best interest, but in Atlanta we find an alumnus who is able to combine the pursuits of work and play and retain a delightful sense of humor. This particular alumnus is Brother Thomas J. Wesley, Jr., Eta '30, Emory University, pres ident of Pi Kappa Phi's District V. He was born in Atlanta November 5, 1910, and was graduated from Emory in 1933, with a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree. Except for five years of military service, Brother Wesley has spent his entire business career in Atlanta, in the real estate business. He is now executive vice-pres ident of Allan-Gr-ayson Realty Company, a firm dealing mainly in property management, particularly the management of office buildings. He has promoted personally the construction and leasi ng of severa l office buildings in Atlanta and in other cities, such as New Orleans and Knoxville. The firm now manages over a million square feet of office space, thus maki ng this firm the largest, by far, in this type of operation in the Southeast, Brother Wesley pointed out.

Teaches in Night School

Besides his business activities, he on occasion teaches the course in " Real Estate Management" in the night school of Georgia State College of Business Administration, Atlanta. Brother Wesley's hobbi es are books, art, music, and travel- but principally travel. Durin g the las t four Summers he has taken his family- wife, the former Madge York, a 1933 g raduate of Ag nes Scott College, whom he married in 1937; daug hter, Patricia, 12, and son, Thomas J., III, 10- to N ew England by boat, to California and Colorado by plane, to Europe by boat and plane, and to H awaii by pl ane. Plans are in the making for a nother European excursion next Summer, this time by plane to Scandinavia, thence to Munich, Zermatt, Paris, London, Scotland. "The kids love it and travel quite easi ly," Brother Wesley said. "Their presence does much to remove obstacles created by a n imperfect knowledge of French history and our faltering German verb forms. In other words, they are an equating factor and evoke feelings of 'brotherhood of man' wherever we go." To Europe Twice with College Bands

"My traveling began in college days when I went twice to Europe with littl e five-piece college bands. One time, Brother Julia n Barfield, Eta (piano) , and Brother El liott Harrington, Eta (guitar), accompanied me.

During 1945 he was transferred to of ~hm~ton and assigned to the Real Estate component in che A1r Staff. He finished his military career as a major B arge of real estate for the Air Forces. Del rather Wesley has one sister, Ruth Wesley, Kappa an' who was graduated from Randolph-Macon Wom&ra~ allege in 1926, with an A.B. Degree, and was &re u_ated_ from Emory University in 1928, with a deCh~t1.Library Science. She now holds the position of 1brarian, Infantry School, Fort Benning, Ga.


Career Termed "Result of Fluke"

th;tn 1iscussing his business career, Brother Wesley said his a though his father was in the real estate business, 8uk own entry into this field was "more the result of a 1 93 ~ than a purposeful action. When I graduated in tion the best of the class got jobs running filling starne ~at $100 per month or went to work for the Governon ~orne type of WPA activity or other. Because of ope lnfenor qualities the lush Government field was not teac~. to me, with the result that after a year of school (th lng for the handsome emolument of 60 per month 1wey Were two months behind on pay when I started), 1 ent to work in a real estate office at 40 per month. rals~~gressed rapidly because at the end of a year they iron · me to $50, another year to $60, etc., etc. The still leal p~rt is that quite a few of the WP A boys are SOrn workmg for the Government, whereas I have done can·~hat better. The moral is, if there is one, you ·y0 ever tell! Or as my former employer would say, coulud couldn't never tell I didn't get no education,'-or you?"

Scholars for NTS 1957



ership of past groups. Our Frater~i~ should be proud of the folloW 10f seven brothers who by their effort' have done so much to maintain the prestige of their respective d1aptf~ and Pi Kappa Phi as a success Fraternity:

THE Pi Kappa Phi Scholars for 1957 are seven in number and constitute the twenty-seventh annual group of Scholars who have received the highest honor that our Fraternity bestows upon an undergraduate member. The first two Scholars were chosen in 1927, and the total number of Scholars to date is 207. During World War II, there were several years when the scholarship program was suspended. What is a Pi Kappa Phi Sd1olar? Is he merely a "brain " who in his Junior or Senior year is elected to Phi Beta Kappa, Tau Beta Pi, Phi Kappa Phi, or some other scholarship honorary a nd who up until this election has never been heard of on the campus? In his chapter is he merely a good scout who could be depended upon to help keep the chapter scholarship average somewhere above last place on the campus and thus help the chapter retain its social and pledging privi leges? A composite record of these 207 Scholars should and does give the answer.

National Scholarship Chairman


A Pi Kappa Phi Scholar is in general a leader on the campus in one or more extra-curricular activities. A good number of these Scholars have been presidents of the Student Body, editors of either the Student Newspaper or the College Yearbook, leaders in Music, Dramatics, Debate, and Religious activities on the campus. A smaller number have been outstanding athletes. Almost all have been active in several student projects by 'serving as minor officers. They all have been a distinct asset to their respective rraternity chapters. In general, a Pi Kappa Phi Scholar is not on ly outstanding in scholarship but his extra-curricular record on the campus is far above the average. The Pi Kappa Phi Sd1olars of 1957 as a group maintain the excellence in bot~ scholarship and campus lead· 8

"The nation was shocked that 292,000 American lives were lost during the four years of World War II," an American Heart Fund Association speaker recalled recently. "But during the same fouryear period, more than 3,360,000 Americans died of heart and blood Vessel diseases." In an effort to defeat these diseases, the American Heart Association, its chapters and councils, conduct programs of heart research, education, and community services. In order to continue these programs, the public is given an opportunity to contribute to the Heart Fund every February. Climax of the Heart Fund Campaign this year will come Heart Sunday, February 23. When your Heart Sunday Worker calls, won't you contribute generously to the fund to combat the heart diseases?

The Desks of the Dedicated By GREG ELAM

NOT SO LONG AGO someone suggested that we have an article on the National Office Staff. The editorin-chief vetoed this idea feeling that such an item would be of limited interest. But one of those strange things happened for no sooner had the decision been reached than we started getting requests to have something about the office in the magazine. The requests continued to come~our readers won. Now, where to start. let us approach the problem from the idea of a visit. The National Office is located at 11 East Canal Street in Sumter, S. C. Sumter is a town of 25,000 people and is located on US Highway 15 and is about 44 miles east of the state capital of Columbia. The local attitude is desirable as many people welcome the significance of a National Fraternity's Headquarters being located in their town . There is always a great deal of cooperation whenever needed. The office itself is knotty pine paneled and the walls are covered with mementos and items of significance to the Fraternity. Pictures from past years look down on the present operations. Past National Officers' pictures gaze across the room to observe the Past National Rose Queens' triumphant smiles. Also on the walls are found the engagement and visitation calendar and a large map of the National Organization as it stretches from shore to shore. When the mail arrives, the Office Manager, Mrs. Mary Principe, opens it and puts the office informatio? stamp on each item which records the date, who rece1ved the mail and to whom it is ¡referred. The date of the reply, initials of person who replied, and file number are filled in later. The different items are then channeled to the Executive Secretary, Bookkeeper, The Star and Lamp, or special routine, as the situation may warrant.

Assistant Office Manager and Head Bookkeeper, Joyce Edenfield, controls the chapter accounts and for supplies. Many operations in the office revolve around the delivery. There are, of course, the required reports evaluate. There will probably be a request for ideas overcome a problem. An "old grad" may be information on the latest address of a friend who become "lost" through the years, or any number of quests may be made. From this central nerve center the National F operations are set in motion. The Chapter ceives a copy of all correspondence sent to the local ter, and the District President receives a copy of letters to the chapters in his district. Aside from handling the vast quantity of mail, pJaOd are made and coordinated for chapter visitation aor other operations of that nature. The numerous pamphl.~; and manuals originate from one of the "desks of [J' . dedicated" on the staff. The office reproduces and isstld~ Official Bulletins and SPOTSHOTS as their need e. I velops. The complex system of addressograph machine~ is used to give mailing lists by either state or by chaptee upon request (it will be of interest to note that '\V 01 guard our mail files zealously and will not release thC to unauthorized persons for any purpose). . There are, of course, extensive filing systems to C00 â&#x20AC;˘ tain the material which is always needed; be it infor~~-1 tion on a member, chapter, or special problem being dJS cussed. r Also under the National Office control is the pub': cation of The Star and Lamp.

Fraternities-uA Social Right" An editorial from the Christia11 Science Monitor, reprinted i11 the Richmo11d (Va.) TimeJ-Dispatch


National . Interfraternity Conference, meeting in Colorado Sprmgs, Colorado, adopted unanimously a report which declared that "choosing of one's own friends and associates is a social right which cannot be confused with civil rights." Some college fraternities never embodied in their constitutions either racial or religious exclusions. Some did, b~~ no longer do. Some still retain such restrictive proVISIOns. These latter may be properly called upon to defend their position on grounds of wisdom, expediency, or consistency with democratic or religious ideals. But not on grounds of violating a right. Did such exclusions deny free access to a public education, to a job, to the ballot box, or to due process of law, the answer would be different. Such national exclusions, on the other hand, deny members absolute freedom to choose their associates within their local chapters. But here is a matter to be thrashed out "intramurally." There are those who in their worthy zeal to abolish the injustices of setting people apart by law would blunder into forcing people together by law in areas which can and should be left to voluntary choice. 13

Beta Rho Enters the Fold! By BROTHER EDWARD C. CHEVALIER, Historian Beta Rho Chapter

Q VER the week end of November 1, 2, and 3, 1957, ceremonies took place at Clarkson College of Tech· nology in Potsdam, N . Y., which transformed Karma Fraternity, a local fraternity on the Clarkson campus for the past twenty-eight years, into the Beta Rho Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. Brother Ralph W.

Assisting him in his role was our Executive Secretary, Brother Greg Elam, while the initiating team was from Alpha Tau Chapter at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Pledging Ceremony

After a day of indoctrination in the history and traditions of Pi Kappa Phi , the pledging ceremony took place on Saturday afternoon. All through the night individual initiations were scheduled, while the chapter installation was performed in the morning of the third of November. This was followed by the installation banguet which was held in the main dining room of the Arlington Inn, with an attendance of over one hundred persons. During the banquet, our first archon , Richard H. Lewis, from Rochester, N . Y., served as master of ceremonies.

uThe Little Man" With the Big Job "THE Little Man in the Apartment," as he is referred to frequently at Alpha Upsilon, Drexel, is one of the "fixtures" at the chapter. He is Brother Charles S. Kuntz, District President of District XXI, the bachelor who has made his home in an apartment over a garage on the chapter property since his undergraduate days. Subsequent to his graduation from Drexel in 1951, he entered the employ of the Factory Insurance Association, a nationwide industrial property insurance organization. He now works in the Philadelphia office as a fire protection engineer, concerned mainly at present with safety and combustion controls on industrial ovens, boilers, and furnaces. "I was born in Slatington, Lehigh County, Penna.," he said in an interview. "Anyone from this part of the country can guess, from my name, and birthplace that I am Pennsylvania Dutch. However, I must admit, I make a poor Dutchman since I can neither speak nor understand the dialect."


He Served in Army During War After graduation from the local high school, Brother Kuntz entered the Army and served three years during World War II. He pointed out that he was more or less indoctrinated into college life (Army style) during this period since he spent time at both the University of Mississippi and Lake Forest College. However most of his time in the service was spent as a non-commissioned officer in the 96th Infantry Division, visiting a few islands in the South Pacific. Following his discharge from the service, he entered Drexel Institute of Technology in Philadelphia and took the live-year cooperative course in commerce and engineering. Held Various Fraternity Offices He was pledged to Pi Kappa Phi during his freshman year and was initiated in May, 1947. As an undergraduate he served as house manager and treasurer. He was also a member of Sigma Rho and Pi Nu Epsilon honorary fraternities. As an alumnus in Pi Kappa Phi, he has served as treasurer, vice-president, and president of the Philadelphia Alumni Chapter. "My interest, naturally, has been devoted mainly to Alpha Upsilon Chapter," Brother Kunz stated. "On the hobby side, my principal interest at present is my Hi-Fi set and record collection . As an indication of the esteem which the chapter has for him, it presented him, in 1954, their MacKelcan Award for outstanding service to the chapter. Brother Kuntz attended the National Conventions in Miami in 1952 and in Philadelphia in 1956. He was not an official delegate to either convention, but he was on the convention committee for the one in Philadelphia.

Upon returning to school this Fall, Alpha Epsilon Chapter was shocked by the news that Brother Duane Taylor had passed away. He died during the Summer from Bright's Disease. Duane was one of our newest brothers, being initiated last Spring, but even so, he was one of the most active members of the chapter. He had taken on many of the responsibilities, and many said big things were in store for Duane. He transferred from St. Petersburg (Fla.) Junior College in the Fall of 1956. He was majoring in Business Administration . He would have been a senior this year. Duane came from a Pi Kapp family. His brother, Bob Taylor, was graduated from Florida in 1954. We at Alpha Epsilon are now initiating a Duane Taylor Memorial Award to be awarded to the pledge with the highest average.

varsity teams at Poly. The chapter also managed to retire the IFC Bowling Trophy this year by copping the league leadership for the third consecutive time. Carl Gatto, New York City, a Mechanical Engineering student, and Richard Magg, Queens, were initiated into ALPHA XI June 6, 1957. Carl is the chapter's 400th brother. Brother James Black, Brooklyn, and Brother Heinz Schmidt, Queens, returned to Poly last Fall after a sojourn in the armed forces. Both men are Chemical Engineering majors and expect to be graduated in 1959. "These fe ll ows have been putting the rest of the chapter to shame, the way they are 'rattling' off those 'A's,' " the Historian declared. Polytechnic, after a good deal of refurbishing, has occupied the buildings which formerly housed the American Safety Razor Company. "Executive Secretary Greg Elam visited our chapter in November,'' Historian DeGiralamo wrote The Stat· ar~d Lamp. "His warm personality and wonderfully persuasive talks captivated the brothers. His suggestions were well received, and many have already been put into action." Past National Secretary Wayne Moore was the speaker for Founders' Day, December 8, 1957, at ALPHA OMICRON, Iowa State College. Brother Moore returned recently from the Far East where he has been operations analyst with the Far East Air Force in Tokyo for about two years. He is now working on his thesis for his Ph. D. Degree. Thanks go to Historian Bill Merrill for this information and also for the news that the following live men were initiated into ALPHA OMICRON November 17: Richard Hergert and George Reudy, Amana, Iowa; Leonard Veak, Agency, Iowa; Craig Mitchell, Buckingham , Iowa, and Warren Schrader, Buckingham, Iowa . Moving a block from their former location, ALPHA SIGMA has replaced its 8-room house with a house of 14 spacious rooms at 1.628 Ya le Avenue. Knoxville, Tenn. The chapter has made plans to increase the number of rooms to 18 this Spring by converting the attic into sleeping quarters. Historian Barry Scott has reported also that the first housemother ALPHA SIGMA has had in seven years is Mrs. Frank Russell of Maryville, Tenn. "Mom" Russell was formerly a prominent concert singer of stage, screen, and radio. "The brothers consider Mrs. Russell as one of our greatest assets," Brother Scott said. The new Rose of ALPHA SIGMA is Miss Nancy Rasor, a 23

Phi Mu from Knoxville, Tenn. A freshman in the College of Home Economics, Nancy is the attractive daughter of Col. and Mrs. Samuel Rasor. Colonel Rasor is Professor of Military Science and Tactics of the Army ROTC unit at the University of Tennessee. Rush Week in the Fall brought 11 pledges to ALPHA SIGMA. Historian Bill Laster has brought us up-to-date on happenings at ALPHA TAU, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, during last term. Three brothers have attained the highest honors possible for undergraduate students. Brother Harry Zimmer was elected President of the Union. In the sophomore class, Brother Edgar Kersey was selected for the White Key, honorary for outstanding leadership ability displayed during the freshman year. Brother Fran LaGase was selected to the Bachelors of Rensselaer, honorary for outstanding freshman athletes. Fran, a swimmer, set three out of a possible five records. The chapter also had 12 brothers chosen to be Counselors in Freshman Camp. The week end of November 3, members of AI-PHA TAU went up to Clarkson College to initiate KARMA Fraternity into the brotherhood as BETA RHO Chapter. Brother Greg Elam was there to handle pledge training. while the brothers of ALPHA TAU handled the initiation. From 8:30 Saturday night until 6:30 Sunday morning, 62 new brothers were initiated. "We would like to congratulate the BETA RHO men on the dedication and spirit exhibited," Brother Laster wrote. "Their willingness to learn and to cooperate in any way possible assures the fact that they are true Pi Kapps. "Social life at the Paine Mansion reached a new peak this year. At IF Week End, we had Wilbur DeParis at the house. Wilbur is considered by many to have the best New Orleans style Dixieland band in the country. That week end, 1,700 people passed through our front doors. "Sportwise, the Pi Kapps again excelled. We obtained a tie for first in IFC football and a solid first in swimming. The possibilities for a basketball trophy look just as good. "Rushing brought the Pi Kapps a top pledge class. Their number is 20, and they hail from around the world-Bermuda, New York, Oslo, Paris, Alexandria, Houston, Cleveland, etc., speaking French, Greek, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Texan, Rebel Lingo, and Brooklynese. This is a typical Pi Kapp pledge class, the kind that have placed us on top and kept us on top," Brother Laster concluded. ALPHA UPSILON Chapter at Drexel is wishing the best of lu ck fnr Brother Hector Negroni who transferred from Drexel to the United States Air Force Academy and is presently in tra~ning there. The show is over but the memory lingers on. Brothers at ALPHA UPSILON ~re happy over the success of their show, "Bootleggin' Babes," which over 1,800 persons saw in two presentations in November. Historian M . D. Sheri~an declared that " under the brilliant leadership of Brothers Dtck Mensch, Chairman; Walt Koenig. Script, and Dean Beckwith, Production, all of ALPHA UPSILON piled on the bandwagon and pitched in to produce the best yet." Along with their show, ALPHA UPSII-ON had a full social schedule. "Executive Secretary Greg Elam joined us for a few days this term " Brother Sheridan said. "We were pleased to have him visit' us and are looking forward to his next trip this way. Greg managed to see the show Friday nig~t and ~tten~ a dance while here · also he made two house parttes. Wtth Ius trusted banjo, Greg led 'a n enjoyable song fest. Singing can and always does liven up a party. Our national leader turned a ,t:ood party into a gceat party with his banjo. "Drexel is at present deep in talk of expansion. All of the fraternities on campus are intensely interested in this expansion since it will affect us directly. The present expansion pro,t:ra~ entails the school's moving right up to our front door. Thts very possibly will make it necessary for us to move from our present location." ALPHA UPSILON's bowlers retained the Inter-Fraternity Championship . Last year the chapter's team captured the title by a margin of 23 pins; this year they swamped the opponent by over 400 pins. Brothers Dick Mensch (captain), Jack Campbell , Wilson Cassel , Bob Schoenberger, Dean Beckwith, and Charlie McDermott led them to their second consecutive championship. Individual and league records were broken and presently just about every bowling record at Drexel is held by the team from ALPHA UPSILON. 24

"After being humbled in a chug-a-lug contest at our ann F~unders' Day Banquet held at the Stockyards Inn, our al~ vmdicated themselves in basketball," Historian Jim Lef10~ of ALPHA PHI wrote. "Height and experience told the 5 as the alumni won the game 52 to 20." Brother Roy Schaufelberger, Union, N. ]., brought thhoOf to himself and BETA ALPHA when he qualified for d Kappa Phi Scholarship Award. The scholarship pendant an tation were presented to Brother Schaufelberger at the f()IV ders' Day Dinner. 111 BETA ALPHA wishes to remind alumni brothers who ;1 in the Northern New Jersey area that the recently reorgan 11 .

We have the reputation as the best serenaders on the campus, which we have worked hard for. Before the holidays we are joining voices with the sorority win ner of last year's Campus Sing, which we won, to sing throughout Tallahassee. It'll be a lot of fun. "Brothers Frank McDonald of ALPHA EPSILON, and Brother Jim McGann of ALPHA IOTA gave their pins away to FSU girls this year. To be real hospitable to them, and to keep in our tradition, we threw them into the campus pool and gave them an informal serenade. They were really gratefu l for our getting them all wet. A formal serenade is being planned for them in the near future." " Chapter News" goes to press with reports from a few more than half of the chapters. These reports were excellent. For all of them we send our thanks. Now we have a question: What happened to the chapters that did not report? Can't we have I 00 per cent reporting for the May issue? Deadline is March 15.
