uonce Upon a Line" By the EDITOR-IN-CHIEF


An Affiliate of the National Interfraternity Conference To: Deans of Men Fraternity Advisors Interfraternity Council Presidents Many deans and IFC presidents approved and adopted the policy on rushing suggested last fall by the College Fraternity Secretaries Association: 1· That the use of alcoholic beverages be avoided in

rushing. 2· That formal rush be limited to one week or, preferably, less. 3. Tha.t rushing expenses be reduced by elimi.nating professiOnal entertainment and elaborate parties. 'I'here are certain practices and customs which continue to be carried out by Fraternity members ~hich cause unfavorable publicity for the entire Fratern1ty System and sometimes result in injury or death for a membe: or Pledge. These objectionable practices include such thmgs as: 1· Trophy Stealing 2· Pledge Walkouts 3. Pledge Hikes or Trips 4· Undesirable Initiation Observances in public or private.

lvfa~y of these practices have a deep background .of

tradition on certain campuses. However, the fact rem~ms that again and again one or another of these pract1ces causes serious trouble for the chapter involved, embarrassment and bad publicity for the institution, and local and often nationwide bad public relations for the entire Fraternity System. 'We need good/ublic relations and the best way to get them is to avoi bad public relations. 'I'he College Fraternity Secretaries Association, with the f~U approval of the Executive Committee of the Nat~onal Interfraternity Conference, urges that you conSider these objectionable practices and, if they are a part of Fraternity life on your campus, take such steps as may be necessary to prevent their future occurrence. Sincerely, George V. Uihlein, Jr., President College Fraternity Secretaries Association

. ..

The College Fraternity Secretaries Association is ac~­ al!y the association of Executive Secretaries of the maJor national fraternities. Each Summer the administrative heads of the fraternity world get together to discuss mutual problems. The above letter was issued this Fall by the association in an effort to make more people apPreciate the fact the poor conduct by one group reflects on all groups; further that experience has proven to those most directly informed in fraternity affairs that



such items as mentioned above serve no good overall purpose. The fraternity secretaries leave the keen competition normally associated with the Greeks, up to the under~ graduate chapters, as they work together by letter and newspaper throughout the year. Then each Summer several days are spent together going over internal operations, improvements, problems, and other information worth sharing among "the craft." The above letter deserves the sincere attention of each Pi Kapp. While looking at the fraternity with an observant eye toward improvement, it would appear as though Pi Kappa Phi has fallen behind in its civic and community obligations. It would not be out of place of each chapter in the fraternity to have one project each year devoted to helping others. With the manpower that a college fraternity has available and with the tremendous potential a group of men have when working together, one afternoon a year would be all that was necessary to. achieve ~orne worthwhil~ objec;:tive.. To clean up a cnpple man s lawn or repa1r a w1dow s home are just a few of the many ways to prove the worth of brotherhood. It would be a rewarding experience for all. Too few of our chapters have responded to the needs of others around them.

. ..

Pi Kappa Phi needs a motto-a gimmic-to be used in its literature. Indeed we need a trade mark to be associated with the fraternity. Perhaps it could be "A fraternity and a home," or "The Hallmark of Brotherhood." Our readers are invited to offer their thoughts on a slogan for ye ole fraternity.

A very dedicated group gathered in Atlanta for the 27th Supreme Chapter meeting. Some conventions are conspicuous for their noise or their/arties but the meeting in Atlanta could truly be calle a "work" meeting. The fraternity will soon benefit from their application to the problems at hand. Not that it couldn't be said that they didn't enjoy themselves for one and all will quickly say that "you haven't lived until you've attended a Pi Kapp National Convention."


Very special plans are now being formulated towards a milestone in journalism-a 50th anniversary. Next fall will see a special issue of The Star and Lamp, reviewing 50 years of an official magazine of the fraternity. There are some things planned that we know will both surprise and please you. The special staff for the anniversary issue is especially interested in any old pictures or information concerning the magazine through the years. Every effort will be made to return them but their safest place for perpetuality is in between the covers of the anniversary issue. -g. e.

"Butts has had ample opportunities to travel, for more t~an 20 colleges and pro teams have made pitches for hts services," the story revealed. . .

Our immediate Past National President Karl M . Gibbon, following his graduation from high school in June, enlisted in the Naval Reserve and was stationed at Great lakes until shortly following the Armistice. He then enrolled in the Uni versity of Illinois, where he became a member of the Gamma Sigma Kappa local which later became our own Upsilon Chapter. His fellow Upsilonian, Glenn Porter Brock, now President of the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroad, following service in the Army from June of 1917 thru December of 1918, likewise enrolled in the University of Illinois, upon his release. He, too, became associated with Paul Walker and other Gamma Sigma Kappians and today is one of our successful brethren. Your Contributor

Forty years ago from the time of the preparation of these notes, your contributor was attached to the U. S. S. Vestal, as First Musician in Band, in dry dock in the Charleston Navy Yard. Forty years ago from the time of publication of this issue, we were on the briny blue, heading for Brest, France. The Armistice changed our course.

"You can't tell about a football team," Brother Butts said in discussing this year's players, "but we have better material than we've had in the last few years. For a change, we've got some experience and depth." ---------~K¢'---------

BROTHER FRIEL HEADS CIVIL ENGINEERS Brother Francis S. Friel, Alpha Upsilon '56, Drexel, has been named as the next Presid ent of the 40,000member American Society of Civil Engineers. He moved into this position from the office of Vice-President. Brother Friel is President of Albright & Friel, Inc., a firm doing design and construction supervision on sanitary engineering and other types of projects. He heads the U. S. Executive Committee which played host to the International Commission on large Dams in New York City in September. He is Past President of the American Institute of Consulting Engineers and the Federation of Sewage & Industrial Wastes Association. 3

this is found elsewhere in this issue). The effect of this is to. nullify the action of the 26th Supreme Chapter ~eetmg and put all members of the fraternity on a ]!fe· time subscription basis. The National Council authorized the issuance of a n~w Pledge Manual and started plans for the 50th An·. mversary of an official magazine (The Pi Kappa Phi Jottmal, 1909-1911; The Star and Lamp, 1911-to?ay) ?f the fraternity to be observed in a special Fall !ssu~ m 1959. The Council further directed that a NatJOna Directory of the entire fraternity membership be c~rn· piled in the Spring of 1959 (additional informatiOn is found elsewhere in this issue) for distribution on ~n individual purchase basis. A History of the Fraterntt}' will follow in 1960. Recognition Awards to Be Created

Some new National recognition awards are to be ere· ated and a new National Scholarship Champion Chapte~ Award was announced and donated by the Council an. is to be named in honor of Dr. Will E. Edington, Pt Kappa Phi Sd1olarship Chairman for a third of a cen.turYj Further action streamlined the action of the NatJOna Office in assisting an undergraduate chapter in collecting delinquent accounts. The National Office equipment w~s reviewed and, after several years of review and investt· gation, an offset duplicating machine was purchased. Not all was work, for entertainment was planned for all. The ladies had fashion shows and guided tours, and the brothers and their favorite girls would join fo~ a warm-up party, banquet, or dance.

Supreme Chapter Meet Is ~~work Convention" A LARGE and certainly enthusiastic group of Pi Kapps were on hand in Atlanta, Ga., for the 27th Supreme Chapter. The local alumni and the Henry Grady Hotel proved to be gracious hosts. The lobby of the hotel was dominated by a 12-foot-long banner, stating in large letters, "Welcome Pi Kapps !" And so, with this greeting, those attending settled down to the tasks at hand and made the August 18th, 19th, and 20th meeting one of the best "work conventions" on record. The entire fraternity policy was reviewed in different committees in a desire to continue refining the already proven basic organization. Some changes were suggested in the National Districting system so as to offer better area contacts for the chapters and an improved arrangement for Leadership School locations. The chapter elections system was altered to permit nominations before chapter elections for those chapters with special reasons to deviate from the established policy.

Lifetime Subscription Again for the Star and La1np The subscription policy of The Star and Lamp has been placed back on a lifetime membership basis. This again permits the entire membership to receive the official publication of the fraternity. The main reason for this decision, reversing the decree of the 1956 Supreme Chapter meeting which voted to void the lifetime subscription policy, is based on the fact that the 1956 meeting voted certain changes in The Star and Lttmp Endowment Fund contribution (which is included in the initiation fee) and this Fund is now receiving three times the original amount and therefore justifying the Endowment plan of lifetime subscriptions. Other reasons cited included: (1) The possibility that the 1956 provision is unconstitutional; (2) The necessity of keeping Alumni files current; (3) The entire membership informed; ( 4) No substantial savings would re-

1 9 58 from red~~ing the press run; (5) JeopardIZ~ng the matlmg contract; ( 6) Keeping faith w1th the fraternity membership who joined under a lifetime subscription plan (though their contribution to the fund was not sufficient in itself to serve the desired purpose).

Those who have responded to the subscription drive now have an option with their money. This new subscription money is in a special fund and has not been used as yet for any purpose. The subscription fee will be returned upon request to the contributor. All funds not returned by request will revert to a special fund. The probable purpose of this special fund will ?e for use in th~ special ~olden Anniversary 1ssu~ of the. C?ffiCI~l Magazme of the Fraternity -:-a JOurnalistic milestone. The option of returnmg the money or keeping it in the special fund is up to each contributor in the recent subscription drive.

DandoSchaff are publishers of college and fraternity annuals as well as books and other material. Mr. Schaff is an active alumnus of Theta Delta Chi (Pennsylvania) and President of National lithographers.

This rating system is arranged to put emphasis on content and not on type of reproduction. Your publication should be directed to YOUR ALUMNI and is judged with that in mind. Many more of the chapters are using the "Offset" process for producing their publication. This method is less expensive than other printing processes, is versatile, and does an all-around good job. However, regardless of individual limitations as to media used, in the final analysis, it depends only upon the ability and ingenuity of your editor, his staff, and the support of the entire chapter to produce an eligible paper. Your delegate had an opportunity to look over some of the more outstanding publications which were exhibited at the Convention. Among those displayed, Rho RtJmblings was outstanding for alumni news coverage. The Dusak and Beta Kappa's Lamplighter were outstanding for editorial material, and the A/micron, Rho Rttmblings, and Omicron 's Omicronicle were outstanding for quality of headlining and general appearance of copy. Ask him for a few pointen in planning your paper for this school year. To all of you, we urge you to "keep up the good work" and get your editor (the historian or a specifically designated member) "on the ball" and get your chapter paper off to a good start this year. There can be only one winner, but your chapter paper can be that winner. Best of luck to all of you. --------- ~K¢ ---------

HDarby Trial" Author Pursues Two Careers THE PROVERBIAL "rusty nail" goes to Brother Mel Metcalfe for his success in obtaining info't1:nation from Brother Richard Elmo ("Dick") Pearce about him self. Brother Pearce, who was initiated into Alpha Gamma Chapter at the University oJ Oklahoma in 1928, is suw!ssful in both the newspaper and literary fields. The Star and Lamp has been trying for several years to persuade '· Brother Pearce to give info'i:lnation about himself for a ~tory,. but to no avail. We are most grateful to Brother Metcalfe, ·Alpha Gamma, for his help. "I am pursuing two writing careers, one as a newspaperman and the other as a fictioneer," Brother Pearce said in his letter to Brother Metcalfe. "As a newspaperman, I am chief editorial writer of Th e San Francisco Examiner, the largest newspaper here. There's nothing more I can say about that career except that I love Brother Richard newspaper work and expect to be in it all my life. "The other career began in 1944 when, after promising myself for many years I would try my hand at fiction, I actually got around to it because I had begun to acquire a family of some size and needed money. The first story I ever wrote was a short western serial entitled "Outpost," and no one was more surprised than I when The Satm·day Evening Post bought it. "There followed munerous short stories in The Post, Collier's, American Magazine, Cosmopolitan, and other magazines. Then I settled down to writing books. The first was a thing called "Desert Steel," published as a serial by Collier's and as a book by Random House. Then followed "The Impudent Rifle," a historical novel laid in eastern Oklahoma in the 1830's. It, too, was serialized by Collie11 s, then published as a book by Lippincott. "Next came a short modern novel laid in California's Mother Lode and called "Valley of tl1e Tyrant." It was serialized by Collier's and published as a paperback book. After that came another historical laid on ilie Oklahoma-Texas border and entitled "The Restless Border." It was serialized by The Post and published as a book by Lippincott. · "By this time I decided I had worked out the western and historical vein and switched to a subject, or rather 12


two subjects, about which I had acquired considerable knowledge as a newspaper· man. These were Commu· nism and courtrooms, which I combined to produce ·rhe Darby Trial.' It was the trial of a secret Commu· nist leader. "This apparently has been my most successful book. It was serialized by The Satfir· day Evening Post and pt~b1ished as a book by Lipp1.n· cott. Three of my earl1er books had been chosen by minor book clubs. This was the first book to hit a big one, The Reader's Digest Condensed Book Club." Brother Pearce attributes his leanness to his arduoL!S gardening. This is the only exercise he takes. He is 49. "My lovely Carol and I are in the nineteenth year of our marriage," Brother Pearce said. "She is a trained librarian and good critic, a~d a tremendous help to me 10 my writing. She is a Sa~ Francisco girl and UniversJ· !"Dick") Pearce ty of California graduate." The Pearces have two daughters, Sally, 17, who entered Vassar in Septemb~r, and Betsy, 13, who is in junior high school. The famdY lives at 3580 Clay St., San Francisco 18, Calif. Brother Metcalfe has revealed that Brother Pearce, whose home was El Reno, Okla., was one of the most popular and best-liked men on the University of Oklahoma campus where there were about 6,000 students. He held important positions on the university student daily newspaper, The Oklahoma Daily, for several years. Then he ran for editor in his junior year. His felloW students elected him in a landslide and the following year he "made the newspaper one of the best editors it ever had." During his undergraduate days, Brother Pearce was elected to Sigma Delta Chi, honorary journal· istic fraternity. ---------~K¢'---------

Modern Aladdin Cuts 1ortune from Rocl<s


WHO OF US has not been thrilled by the fantastic stories of Aladdin and his wonderful lamp? We knew those stories were not true, but we loved them.

Today we have discovered a modern Aladdin whose story is true. His achievements come not as a result of rubbing a magic lamp but of applying his own skill and hard work to the jobs at hand. This modern Aladdin is Brother Jim Stoinoff, Lambda '31, University of Georgia. We were fascinated by the story about Brother Stoinoff which appeared in the February issue of Sh ell Progress. In this story, the author, A. ]. Pappas, explained how Brother Stoinoff, who operates a Shell oil station in Miami, Fla., doubles as a car and gem expert.

Cuts Fortune from Rocks

\Vh J


"When Miami dealer Jim Stoinoff winds up a 12hour stint at his station, he sits down with a pile of stones in his home workshop," Mr. Pappas said in opening his story. "And while his always-open station goes on making money, he's busy cutting a fortune out of rocks . "He starts with a raw precious or semi-precious stone with ragged edges and a dull surface, and cuts, grinds, and polishes it until it becomes a glittering gem worth many times the value of the original rough stone. "There are a few thousand people in the country who do that sort of thing as a hobby-they're called lapidaries. But few rock hounds in the country can match Stoinoff's talent for getting the greatest possible value out of a stone. "In Miami, he's long been known as a car expert. But publicity given Stoinoff by the Miami Stmday News has boosted his prestige as both a car and gem expert. The newspaper ran a full-color spread on the dealer who doubles as a gem expert, and brought a lot of people into his station for gasoline and a chat with a local celebrity. Collection Worth about $125,000

"A nd no wonder. Stoinoff's collection of rubies is said to be more valu able than that of any of his rival lapidaries. What's more, he's got a wide assortment of other gems in a vault in a Miami bank; altogether they're worth about $125,000. "Picture a queen's jewel chest filled with gems of every shape and color, and you'll have an idea of the contents of Stoinoff's safety deposit box," Mr. Pappas said. Brother Stoinoff bought some of the raw stones from gem dealers throughout the country fo r only a fraction of the value of the finished gems, but he found most of them on his own property, a 14-acre vacation place he bought 10 years ago in Hiawassee, Ga., the place where he and his wife and daughter spent their Summers. He began collecting stones-arrowheads-there during his first vacation. Three years later he commenced collecting raw precious stones and metals. His collection of arrowheads-Cherokee--includes four or five thousand specimens. 14

" It was on an arrowhead hunt one day that a differe~~ type of stone caught his eye : a gem in its natural sta~e, Mr. Pappas con tinued. "But he didn't know what ktnd of rock he' d fou nd , or whether it had any value. Stones by the Bucketful

"He quickly learned that after a rainfall, when the ground was eroded a bit, he could gather raw precious stones by the bucketful; they lay exposed on top of the ground. 'Of course they're harder to find now that the word's out and a lot of other people are looking for them,' Jim says. 'Last time I went to my favorite spot, I counted eight p eople there--down on their hands and knees sifting the earth for raw stones.'" Brother Stoinoff took some of his stones to D enver for examination by Department of Mines experts. They reported that he had a vari ety of rocks and metals rang路 ing from a small amethyst to a sapphire the size of a golf ball , but none was very valuabl e in its natural state. Through years of study, trial, and error, he acquired the ski ll and equ ipment to convert the raw stones into valuabl e gems. THE








"His first major triumph came two years ago when he Walked away with top prize for rubies at a Baltimore co~test sponsored by the Eastern Federation of Mineral0&tcal and Lapidary Societies," the story related.

Nationwide Recognition "lie earned nationwide recognition as a gem expert 1 ast year when he captured a first prize in a Denver ;how where competition is limited to lapidaries who've aken top awards in regional contests all over the country." ~rother Stoinoff had to learn two methods of gem 6ntshing-faceting and cutting cabochons. The story ~hplained that a cabochon is any smooth, rounded stone at has no facets cut into it. 1-Iis proudest achievement, we are told, is a cabochon: a 1~4-carat purple-and-red star ruby that has been apPratsed at $35,000. In Jess expert hands, the stone might never have been worth more than $3,500. The six-rayed Perfect star that Brother Stoinoff painstakingly brought to the ruby's surface at dead center is what gives the sto~e its great value. He had bought the rough stone, htch had come from Burma, from a Chicago gem dealer or 500. "For six months he worked on the stone every spare moment he could find," the story continued. "But he was Unable to stay with it for more than two hours at a stretch: 'My eyes needed a break from the terrific strain of looking through 7117-power lenses, while I whittled away at the stone.' 路:But he went back to his workbench at every oppor~ntty-cutting with precision accuracy; grinding; polishtog. \Vf

"'It's a form of expression,' he says. 'Like the painter or the sculptor, I try to make something that's beautiful to see. What's more, it's relaxing, and gives me a sense of achievement.' "

Rubies and sapphires make up about half of this modern Aladdin's 2,000-gem collection. The other half includesamethysts, emeralds, garnets, opals, and aguamarine chrysoberyl, morganite, and topaz crystals. ' Brother Stoinoff shows little interest in the commercial value of his gems. He plans to donate his entire collection some day to the State of Georgia or to the University of Georgia, his alma mater.

The record time stood at 6.2 seconds until Jesse Owens shaved one-tenth of a second off the mark. Brother Stoinoff hasn't allowed his 200-pound, six-foot frame to get soft with inactivity. He gets up daily at dawn . takes a brisk three-guarter-of-a-mile run, and easily tick~ off 20 push-ups before breakfast. He is 47. In 1938, Brother Stoinoff took over the small station on a postage-stamp lot at 36th Street and 7th Avenue, on one of Miami's busiest intersections, put all his boundless energy into it, and saw gallonage triple, TBA sales and service income increase tenfold. " 'It's like gem finishing,' Jim says. 'Work at it hard enough and long enough, and you're bound to come路 up with something valuable.' " --------~K~--------

This is accomplished by a semi-sho treatment known as Fourth Class Training. The succesd of this method is more than proved by the enviable recor established in combat by the graduates of the other twO service academies. "The academy, the Air Force, and the future provide the cadet with his incentive and motivation. Though the academy does not turn out scientists, engineers, 0 tors, or lawyers, it does turn out an equally highly tratne specialist-the Air Force officer. Perhaps a new degree should be created and the cadet's diploma could carry the notation: 'Major in Airmanship.' " The address of the academy is Denver 8, Colo.

Brother Negroni Studies At Air Force Academy ALPHA UPSILON CHAPTER, Drexel, is represented at the United States Air Force Academy by at least one member. He is Brother Hector A. Negroni, Alpha Upsilon '57. Brother Negroni has passed to us a copy of the statement of the mission of the academy: "To provide instruction, experience, and motivation to each cadet so that he will graduate with the knowledge and qualities of leadership required of a junior officer in the United States Air Force, and with a basis for continued development throughout a lifetime of service to his country, leading to readiness for responsibilities as a future air commander." Brother Negroni explained that "while progress points more and more toward the area of technology and science; diplomacy, leadership, and an understanding of democracy and the arts are rapidly gaining in importance. While teaching a regular college curriculum, the academy prepares the cadet for his career by giving instruction in flying training and the military studies. If any of the instruction which he receives is specialized, this is it. Spread over the four years at the academy, the cadet receives the same course of instruction that all air force navigators are given and receives upon graduation his pair of wings as a rated navigator. "Aside from these specialized studies, the academy 16

Brother Carl l. Sadler

f(ey Post in Tool Firnz Goes ·to 01negan ELECTION of an Omega man as vice-president to head a major operating division has been announced by Sundstrand Machine Tool Company, Rockford, Ill. Brother Carl L. Sadler, Omega '35, Purdue, general manager of the Sundstrand Aviation Division, was named vice-president in charge of this division. He was graduated from Purdue in 1938, with a Mechanical Engineer Degree. During his senior year he was Ard1on of his chapter. Sundstrand, which entered the select list of the nation's 500 largest corporations for the first time in 1956, had its biggest year to date in 1957. The company builds machine tools, oil pumps for home-heating furnaces, and industrial hydraulic components, in addition to the constant speed drives for aircraft electrical systems and accessory power supplies for guided missiles that are being produced in two divisions, one of whid1 is that headed by Brother Sadler. Brother Sadler joined the Aviation Division in 1947 after being previously associated with Westinghouse. He holds memberships in a number of technical organizations, including the American Society of Tool Engineers, the Society of Automotive Engineers, and the Institute of Aeronautical Scientists. While on campus, Brother Sadler was a member of Pi Tail Sigma, served as an associate editor on the Exponent, and was a colonel in the ROTC. 18

SCHOLARSHIP, as stated in the Creed of Pi Kappa. Phi, is one of the basic principles on which the Fra· ~er~ity was founded. Fifty-three years ago a group .of mdlVlduals got together and decided to foster this qualtt}' ?f ~ducatio?. Since then the Fraternity has grown b~th m stze and tdeas-with one binding element, scholarshtp, still prevailing. Alpha Mu Chapter at Penn State has lived by these standards ever since the chapter was founded in 1927· Today, 30 years later, we have one of the best faculty members at the university to guide us along these set principles. Dr. C. L. Fergus, Alpha Mu '52, is the individual t.o whom the chapter owes many thanks. It is through htS tireless and endless efforts that the chapter has done so well scholastically. During a year, Alpha Mu has climbed up the ladder of success from a low of 52nd on campus to a present rating of 17th. And we're still going strong. Dr. Fergus, a botanist by profession, recently was elect· ed President of the Association of Fraternity Couns~· lors here at Penn State. He is also a member of Sigma ){i, the national science fraternity; Gamma Sigma Delta, bon· or agricultural society, and several other professional honoraries. At Ottawa University, Kansas, as an undergraduate, Dr· Fergus performed well in his studies and in addition ran the quarter mile and the half mile for the varsity track team. He then went to graduate school at Kansas University and there gained a master's degree in Botany. After graduate school, Dr. Fergus entered the NaV}' and participated in the initial invasions of Kiska, Saipan. Tinian, Peleliu and Okinawa. In 1948 he added the final touch to his formal education by gaining a doctor's degree at Penn State. With the aid of a State grant, Dr. Fergus began wor}( in 1952 on a research project on the problem of Oa.k Wilt. His research has yielded improved control of thtS disease. He is married and has two sons: Chuck, 6 years old, and Mike, 3 years old. Alpha Mu congratulates Dr. Fergus on his recent eJec· tion as ~resident ~f AFC and thanks him for his spiri_ted cooperatiOn and atd as t11e chapter faculty adviser. Wr~· out him we wouldn't have performed so well scholastt· cally. Thanks again, Doctor, for a job well done.

Pledges Entertain Children As a HHelp Week" Project (The story below was the first in a series of reports of "Help 117eek" activities undertaken by the fraternity pledge classes of Eastern Michigan College's social fraternities, published in the Eastern Echo of EMC this Spring. A11 account of the trip described here appeared in the Ypsilanti D ai ly Press May 3.)

Last Friday, the pledges of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity conducted a trip to the Belle Isle Zoo for 24 of the children from Rackham School. Arranged through Dr. William C. Lawrence, EMCs Vice-President for Student Affairs, and Miss Gertrude Roser, Principal of Rackham, the trip began at 9:00a.m., travelling on bu sses provided by the college. The children had a wonderful time exploring the "wilds" of the zoo, according to the fraternity pledges.

The children consumed a picnic lunch consisting of 8~ bottles of milk, 48 ice cream cups, and 13 pounds 0 hot dogs. The milk and ice cream were donated to the children by the Wilson Dairy of Ann Arbor. Accompanying the children were Pi Kappa Phi pledge_s Jepp Bryant, Fred Deaner, Dan Free, Larry Ordows~ Larry Powers, Bill Raeburn, Al Sebert, Bob White, D1 Wilbur, and John Witten. Assisting with the day's activities were Miss Oli_ve Chase and Prof. Agnes Rogers, Rackham school !W structors; Nyla Hicks, a senior from Yankton, S. D., and Mrs. Jacqueline Wilbur. "We're sure that after the Alpha Gams painted the Rackham dormitory rooms and the Pi Kapps gave the children a 'day off,' thanks to all the cooperation re; ceived, the change from 'Hell Week' to 'Help Week is all the more complete," stated Dick Wilbur, President of the Pi Kappa Phi pledge class.

SXPERIMENT STATION ENTOMOLOGIST Brother Robert Vanderbosch, Gamma, is an Entomologist for the University of California Citrus Experiment Station in Riverside, Calif. ~OVEMBER,


staff of Davidson College to possess facilities which would enable students to learn the actual speaking of a foreign language. It was not until the friends of Brother James Wilkinson Jervey, III, Epsilon '50, Davidson College, decided to make a memorial to him that these dreams were realized. Brother Jervey was an honor graduate of Davidson College in the Class of 1953, with a major in Spanish. While at Davidson he was president of the honorary Spanish fraternity, Sigma Delta Pi. Upon graduation, "Jinks," as he was known by his classmates and friends, was awarded a Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin, from which institution he received his Master's Degree in 1954. He was then the recipient of a Rotary scholarship for a year of study in Chile, and it was there that he died from injuries received in a skiing accident. Upon receiving the authority to initiate plans for the Language Laboratory, a committee, composed of Professor Howard French, Dr. Pedro Trakas, and Dr. George Watts, chairman, made visits to existing language laboratories in several colleges. They also made a survey from information obtained from 96 of th e existing college labs in the country. By Spring of last year the committee was able to recommend details for installation of 24 individual booths with tape recorders in each booth. Also a control table was installed, equipped with three play-back machines, one for each language studied: German, French, and Spanish. At the opening of college this year the James Wilkinson Jervey, III, Memorial Language Laboratory was ready for use. TI1e dedication of this memorial took place Wednesday, February 19, at a convocation at the college. Dr. Clarence John Pietenpol, Acting President and Dean of the Faculty of Davidson, had as his topic, "The James Wilkinson Jervey, III, Language Laboratory." The principal address was delivered by Dr. James Logan Godfrey, Dean of the Facu lty of the University of North Carolina. His subject was "International Communication in Our Day."

The Year in Review-1957-1958 The fraternity initiated the largest number of new members in its 54.-year history this past college year except for one veteran-laden post-war year. Pledging records were also challenged. Eight joint Conclaves and Leadership Conferences were held across the nation under the supervision of the National Office. The District Presidents set out to reach the goal of a visit per chapter from its District President each year in addition to the National Office visitation program and the Leadership Conference plan.
