Today you are to be initiated into Pi Kappa Phi. This choice has been entirely Your own; however, it goes without saying that I am pleased. To be truthful, I feel that my cup of happiness does truly "runneth over." Now that your decision has reached its climax, I feel that I have the privilege of rendering advice. True, it i s not called for, but I trust that you will consider its merit. Believe me, it has been difficult to refrain from doing so before this. Can it be possible for you at so early an age to be different? I do not mean for You to become a "beatnik" or a "hermit," but instead I would ask you to adopt a Philosophy that is alien to the crowd--a philosophy that has created greatness in many but which has been practiced by so few. The mass worships at the foot of that idol--"WHAT IS IN IT FOR ME?" To you I would suggest a slight change--"WHAT IS IN ME FOR IT?"

Does it sound strange? Do not be alarmed at first. Think about it ! Taste it ! Then if you are ready to become a tr~e Pi Kapp, digest it. So many times we are led to believe that a fraternity does something for or gives something to a person. This cannot be further from the truth. INSTEAD, I WOULD SUGGEST TPE THOUGHT THAT YOU WILL GET FOR YOURSELF IN DIRECT PROPORTION TO WHAT YOU GIVE OF YOURSELF. First, GIVE OF YOUR CONSCIENCE. Does that sound old fashioned? Many of us are born and die and try never to admit to such an existence. Instead of suppressing this guide post, put it out beside the path and make use of it. Many times there will be strong arguments from fellow fraternity brothers against such a gift; however, in the end result, the presence of your conscience will be noteworthy. CONTRIBUTE OF YOUR IDEAS. Do not be alarmed at the thought. All can think but so few realize the importance of it. Metal and wood can be molded and made into an object of value that can be contributed to your Fraternity. Soon the ages take effect and the physical object is gone or is at best worthless. Not an idea! Although intangible, it is ageless. It is as new as the moment it is contemplated, and those generations following will find its newness most welcome. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET YOUR RELIGION. Oh, how our Fraternity stands in its need! Now, I am not asking for you to be known as a fanatic. Take the perfect example--Jesus Christ. The simplicity and moderation of his teachings serve as a guide. Your FRATERNITY ALTAR needs to be visited much more often. Its place in so many instances has been pre-empted by other more worldly preoccupations. I feel that until it is again in its rightful place we shall see continued deterioration. DO NOT SLACKEN WHEN THE PHYSICAL BODY IS IN DEMAND. Your physical strength can do so much that is constructive. You note that I said constructive. If our Fraternity would eliminate the destructive physical activities and become more constructive, think of the good that would accrue. Hard work will often make the most minute something of great value. HOW ABOUT YOUR LOVE AND AFFECTION? The greatest commandment was to love. Be affectionate towards your Fraternity brothers. Yes, even those whom you feel unqualified to receive same. Perhaps they are in need of brotherly love to bring to them the full fruition of their potential. LOVE THE IDEALS AND TRADITIONS of your Fraternity. How can you pass the test of the ritual and do otherwise? There are additional points to this advice, but I realize you despise lengthy discourse. Perhaps it would have been best to suggest merely that you give it your ENTIRE SELF. Put your heart and soul and body into i t . Push on toward a goal of Perfection. Really, isn't it true that anything worth doing is worth doing right? I know that you will not want to be connected with anything that is less than successful. As a final summation, remember that as you give of yourself to Pi Kappa Phi, you Will find yourself receiving. DAD


We alumni also can contribute these things.

The Founding of Sigma

The Pa.ssing of Sigma

(From The Star and Lamp of October 15, 1913)

(From The Star and Lamp of October 15, 1913)


REQUEST FROM THE EDITOR of The Star and Lamp to write a history of the founding of Sigma Chapter was certainly to be appreciated by the writer, not denied. If there is one thing that remains dear to the memory of any one man it is the memory of those several months spent with the rest of my good friends mutually discussing the probabilities, pro and con, of establishing ourselves as an affiliated chapter of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity.

T HIS IS SIGMA'S FAREWELL to The Star and Lamp. On account of conditions which existed in college last Spring, the faculty asked them to hand in their charter and disband. They complied with their request and cannot reorganize until the present State Jaws are changed concerning Greek-letter fraternities. Sigma regrets having to leave the I ist of active chap路 ters, but thought that it would be best, and consequently has handed in its charter and disbanded.

To make a perfect beginning of the story of the history, it must be taken up at the time of the tennis tournament held at the college in the Spring of 1909. It was at that time that ]. W. King, of Delta Chapter, was invited to room with my roommates and myself in our room at college. Mr. King espied a Beta Tau Epsilon pin which I wore and questioned me as to the meaning of the same. My explanation that it was a high school frat pin caused a mutual feeling of friendship to spring up between us. During his several days' stay at the college, our talks concerning fraternities grew more frequent, and finally a remark of mine to the effect "that I was sorry that there were not frats at the college" caused Mr. King to give me the thought that if a few of us college boys could get together and stay together, "something might be done for us."

Sigma was organized during the years 1909-10 as the Emanon Club, and later petitioned Pi Kappa Phi through ]. W. King, a member of Delta Chapter. They obtained their charter on March 5, 1910, beginning with nine men as charter members. Before the end of that session, two more were added to the roll.

Remember, the writer was a freshman of the freshest sort at that time. It was rather a ticklish proposition to put to the upper classmen, but Dr. Dilly was our first prey. It talked me almost out to convince the gentleman from Noo-erk, N. ]., that frats were right, but we finally agreed that some kinds were proper. The doctor and I decided to take I. Newton Edwards into our confidence on the subject, and John D. Hamer was also given the invitation. Thus did we continue our silent but earnest efforts. At the end of the term in 1909, we were a pretty good body to consider, from twelve to fourteen members; our memory cannot exactly place us correctly on this. In the Fall of 1909 we were all back. Dr. Dilly was a senior and the Summer had fully converted him into a rousing frat man. A number of new men were broached with the subject, and before the Fall passed by we numbered about eighteen, if I remember rightly. Our meetings were not held in the President's office nor the chapel. Sometimes we hogged the reception room of the Literary Society, and sometimes we "cornered" :: section of the campus. But we kept the fires of fraternal spirit burning. The writer left college at holidays. It was on March 5, 1910, after my leaving college, that the charter was obtained and the fellows with whom I had labored were initiated into the mysteries and good fellowship of Pi Kappa Phi. My one hope is that it will be but a short while until I can become likewise blessed. Long live the organization is our hope. It is my earnest request that any of the charter members of the Sigma Chapter will at all times consider themselves welcome to write me. I want you to. My long suit is reading and writing. With best regards to you all, The one who expects yet to be, Yours in Pi Kappa Phi, /s/ Wade Smith Bolt [WADE SMITH BOLT, Sigma '10 University of South Carolina]

The year 1910-11 began with seven men and one who afli Iiated from Beta. Before the end of the collegiate year, four additional members were taken in. The year 1911-12 was the banner year. Ten men returned to college and live affiliated at the opening. They initiated seven that year, running the chapter roll up to 22 for the year. The year 1912-13 opened with fourteen men back in college. They remained, with one exception, during the entire year. No affiliations nor initiations were made during the past year. Sigma has furnished twenty-three men to the fraternity during its four years of existence. Out of the number, some have risen to prominence. They have on their rolls a past E. S. J., a past E. S. G., who is now E. S. A., a past Asst. E. S. T., who is now E. S. T., and a past Asst. Bus. Mgr. of The Star and LamP路 The present E. S. ]. is a Sigma man, one Associate Editor of The Star and Lamp, and the E. S. C., the newly created office, hails from Sigma. This shows that they have furnished men with ability, who are helping to bui ld Pi Kappa Phi up and place it among the best. Besides these, they have one who is in public life, being a member of the State Legis lature. He is a good one, too. They are justly proud of their record and have a right to be. Few chapters can boast of as many men that have taken as active an interest as those of Sigma. The members of the chapter were unanimous ly popular with the student body and enjoyed the respect of the faculty. Their sc:holastic standing was as high as any in coll ege, if not the htghest. In_ athletics they were well represented, having at tim~s representattves on all of the teams. They were men from everY department of the college. No more representative group could have been picked. They were congenial among themselves and had plenty of the Pi Kapp spirit. The pass ing of Sigma is a distinct Joss to the fraternity, it being the second largest chapter. It was centrall y located, drawJ':g. from ali parts of the State, always keeping them equallY dlVlded. :w'hde her place wi ll be hard to fill, the time may not be far dtstant when she can again take her accustomed place ~ong her sister ch~pters, proclaiming the fact that she is a wtde-open chapter w1th plenty of the same spirit that she was noted for. Until that time comes, vale.

Happy Birthday, Rho! DID SOMEONE SAY that "Life Begins at Forty?" Anyway, for Rho Chapter at Washington and Lee we shall assume that a great increase in life and vigor started last Spring when Rho observed its fortieth birthday. Many happy alumni who attended the celebration can testify to the success of the event.

The reunion was used as an opportunity to present engraved certificates of recognition to the chapter's outstanding alumni.

Brother John Miles, then Editor of The Virgi11ia Gentleman, Rho Chapter's publication, began the publicity with an article in the Spring, 1959, issue of that paper, outlining the proposed activities and purposes. The following Fall the new alumni committee, headed by Brother Bill Jordan, new Editor of the publication, met with Rho Chapter's Adviser, Brother Herb Hamric (Brother Hamric had proposed the reunion), and planned the course of the Fortieth Reunion to the minutest detail. The alumni committee was supplemented by a reunion committee whose duty it was to carry out the tremendous job of creating enthusiasm for the event in almost four hundred alumni. Since personal contact with each alumnus is the best method of stimulating interest, some means of writing personal letters to all alumni had to be devised . To solve this problem, the nation was divided into thirty districts, each district being assigned to one Key Man whose duty it was to write those men living in his section of the country. Key men were d10sen on the basis of interest they had shown in the chapter and their willingness to give actively to the Fraternity. The choices proved to be good ones, for every Key Man carried out his charge with immediate speed .

This anniversary celebration was a rewarding experience not on ly for those alumni who returned but also for each brother. Probably the greatest contribution, however was the vast increase in alumn i communications. A~ one undergraduate put it: "It can safely be Said that Rho's alumni relations were improved one hundred per cent by the reunion."

Fair response to these letters was expected, but the outcome was far beyond fair. Letters and telegrams poured in at the rate of four or five a day for over a month. People whose existence previously had been only a name and a chapter number on a filing card now became friends of the active chapter-they became, more exactly, brothers in a truer sense.

"The first returning brothers started rolling in Friday, April 22," the Spring issue of The Virginia Gentleman stated. "That night was devoted to bull sessions and reminiscences. "Saturday, the cha1 ter- old and new- migrated en to Goshen for a picnic. After partaking of a delicious barbecued chicken lunch, everyone soon became \Veil roasted by the sun and well washed by the icy \Vaters of the Maury. Later in the afternoon, much to the pleasure of all , the famous Dukes of Dixieland entertained Pi Kapps and a 'few' VMI cadets. ~asse

"That night there was a formal banguet and cocktail Party at the Hotel Robert E. Lee for almost a hundred. later that evening, the annual Rose Ball was held in the hotel's ballroom." 0


The success of this week end was no mere accident. It was the climax to more than a year of planning and execution of plans. Many alumni assisted the undergraduates in developing interest and attendance, to say nothing of an enjoyable program for those who attended.




There is one extremely vital fact incidental to living in that home- a fact which will be contested by many readers of these words-unless the men w ho roam the halls of this mansion make grades at least as good as th~ students who do not live there, these members of Pt Kappa Phi will not be able to live in the same fine homes when they step out into the business world . A_s a Management Consultant, placing young men in bust· ness, I have come to a definite conclusion that grades and world ly success go together. It should be highly sig· nificant that seventh grade Arithmetic questions and seventh grade word knowledge can be a reasonable yard· stick for earning capacities. There is every indicatio~ that they do run together. Certain ly, this is strong evt· dence that it is extremely important for college men to make at least average grades.

It is a good and happy feeling to see some of Ameri· ca.'s finest young men, Pi Kappa Phi members, living in a wonderful home unless they are so unfortunate as to be creating rich tastes only to have those tastes crushed a set of circumstances in which poor grades resu!t m poor earning capacity. While it has been said that tt is better to h ave loved and lost than never to have loved at all, I do not think that the same thought process would hold in acquiring rich tastes on ly to be caught unable to provide wherewithal to support such tastes. Let us hope that no member of Pi Kappa Phi wi ll underrate the need for maintaining at least average college grades.

edu I LAST MAY, I conducted a Management Seminar for South Carolina State Chamber of Commerce in one of South Carolina's leading cities. In this group were executives, office managers, business owners, accountants, retail clerks, and others. A 12-minute mental alertness test was administered to this group. The questions on this test were of such nature as, "If one gallon of gasol~ne cost 23¢ what would four gallons cost?" The nat~onal average on scores for answering these 50 questwns ran from 30 points for major executives down to 8 points for janitors. Upon adm inistering this test and comparing the performances of these men against the national averages, we found that men's stations in life and earning capacities were exactly commensurate with the ~rades they would have made on a seventh grade Engltsh and Arithmetic test. Recently, I received a picture of a new and lovely Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity Home on one of America's finest campuses. The men in that home were living in regal splendor. During their undergraduate days in this home they will acquire tastes for regal living. They will accustom themselves to spacious entertainment facilities. They will accustom themselves to having bounteous and tasty foods. They will accustom themselves to having wearing apparel which will become people who live in such a home. The acquisition of rich tastes in good living is healthy. It creates a standard which will in turn create motivations to greater performance in the art of earning a living and raise the cultural sights of the families of which these men, one day, will become a part. 6

With an eye to the ever-widening horizons in science, the College of Engineering operates one of the two largest atomic reactors on any campus in the United States. Kitt Peak, 40 miles southwest of the university, has been ' selected as the site for the National Observatory. Data processing facilities for the Observatory are presently under construction on the university campus. The Arizona Interfraternity Council is nationally known for its efficient program of service. In 19'56, they were named runner-up by the National Interfraternity Conference in the annual competition to select the most outstanding Interfraternity Council. In 1959, at the Fiftieth Anniversary Conference, the NIC selected the University of Arizona IFC as first in the nation among major colleges and universities. The program which brought this distinction about includes service to member chapters, the university, the community, and to fraternity ideals. One of the most noteworthy projects is the Fraternity Row Housing Plan. This ambitious undertaking provides 12 new fratern ity houses at a cost of two and a half mi llion dollars. Funds are being furnished through a Federal Housing loan made by the Board of Regents which enables the chapters to purchase the properties over a 40-year period at 3l/s per cent interest. At this time, the present chapter house of Pi Kappa Phi at the University of Arizona is inadequate for their needs, and they intend to participate in this program by purchasing a house vacated by a fraternity which is building on the new Fraternity Row.

DO NOT FORGET the 28th Supreme Chapter Meeting August 24-27, 1960 Louisville, Ky.


Conclave _Highlights DIsTRIcT c 0 NCLAVES have enjoyed a most successful year within Pi Kappa Phi. With the advent of Pi Kapp College the need for strict district leadership schools has lessened. Into the void created by the departure of leadership schools has been injected more emphasis on the District Conclaves. This past school year has witnessed District Conclaves in each of our Districts except one. They have, without exception, District President Robert Crossproven successful in varyley addressed District I Coning degrees. Undergraduclave. ates from all but three Chapters have participated. This is an outstanding record and all District Presidents are to be congratulated for a job well done. Conclaves fill a definite need within the Fraternity. A simple definition of a Conclave would be as follows, "The gathering together of Pi Kapps from within a defined area for mutu1l problem-solving and fellowship." In years past, Conclaves were sponsbred and heavily attended by alumni within Districts. On record in the National Office are pictures and written reports indicating Conclaves at which the alumni outnumbered undergraduates two to one. Over the years. the emphasis being placed on such District meetings lessened to the extent that alumni interest has greatly been lost. It is hoped that during the coming years we shall once again see more participation · on the part of alumni in the affairs of their District. It is felt that the guidance and counsel of the more adult and mature minds of alumni will add greatly to the success of any Conclave.

Good Publicity!-How to Get It By ARCHON JOHN REMIAS Alpha Upsilon, Drexel

WHAT ARE COLLEGE FRATERNITIES doing to overcome adverse publicity? What we have done or are doing, it has not been enough! ! I would like to break down our topic of discussion into four major areas: founding principles; types of criticism, adverse publicity, and sources; what has been done to counteract publicity; what can be done to counteract publicity. The first two thoughts mentioned above may be considered almost as one since from the principles, rituals, and secrecies have come many of the criticisms of our system. Fraternities in general have a secret handshake, motto, meaning for their Greek name, and are selective in membership. Because of these "secrecies" they are sometimes labeled as subversive organizations, not necessarily in the leftist sense, but as somewhat subversive to the changing American educational and moral scene where secrecy is not to be condoned. We have grown as an offshoot of the college system, not as a direct part of it. We are as secret as a man in seclusion with his Lord-a personal secrecy indeed. Our ideals say that we shall complement the efforts of our related educational institutions- promote good scholarship, offer sincere and everlasting brotherhood, and help prepare our brothers for their future community living and participation. Are we really doing this? Fundamentally, the fraternity has been a laboratory for our basic American heritage, democracy. In the good chapter, officers are and have been elected to guide and carry on the operations of their brotherhood. They learn responsibility, feel a sense of accomplishment when they do well in competition with other "houses," learn that group effort is the key to successful living, and discover the limits of their own local governmental boundaries which are superseded by the national organization's Constitution and Supreme Laws. In the "laboratory" we may make minor mistakes which affect only seriously enough to prevent reoccurrence. These are the basic principles on which we, all social fr;tternities, have been founded. These fundamentals themselves are occasionally attacked . By whom? I can only guess that they must be subversive attacks by leftist individuals, ones interested in undermining one of democracy's very foundation blocks. But these attacks are rare and not too widely publicized. Then, who does criticize the fraternal system widely and why? Let us discuss the "why" aspect of this question first. We are criticized, not for our founding and idealistic principles but for the fringe activities of our overall operations. These fringe activities may be broken down into two problem areas, hazing and drinking, the first being 10

tnc ere



much more prevalent for adverse publicity purposes. Activities such as paddling, kidnaping, peculiar ntual practices, "Hell Weeks," and related practices have been our downfall from the standpoint of open public attac~· Drinking is another area of difficulty, but because it 1S such a widespread problem in the nation as a whole, we are not often publicly chastised for it. Our educational institutions themselves have various methods of handltng their local drinking problems.



lea tne ace

fro tak

Newspapers and other media of news communication are interested in the circulation of their product, and it is the "spectacular or unusual" which will "sell" it to our sadistic reading public.



car ter Thus it is a headline story when a young neop~yte ltn· of the Greek world chokes to death on a piece of ltver bil jammed down his throat during an initiation ceremony, act or another young man dies in a swamp where he ~a.~ res deposited after being kidnaped from a "fraternity house. Malicious practices such as these have stamped sur pre disapproval on the word "fraternity." are But, let us go farther. Who is responsible for much of the criticism that gets to the papers and also other undercover criticism? Might it be the people or ~he1r tnu children who were rejected by a society of chosen wdt· un, vi duals? Or might it be the chapters themselves? I would the strongly suggest that it is both. People tend to build up wr, a tremendous antagonistic attitude toward anythi ng that cur has rejected them for any reason. If any fonn of outlet offers itself to this "hurt" feeling, it will certainly be los and is utilized. Such an outlet may offer itself wh~n gr< such a person suggests counsel and advice to the famdY tur of a young man or woman considering membership 10 loc a Greek society and discussing the matter with htS fre family. What could it be but adverse advice? dis The other source of criticism is undoubtedly the fra· abJ ternity itself which condones the malicious practices al· in£ ready discussed. So far we have discussed our principles, cer sources, and types of criticism. What have we done Pat about these, and what can we do about them? As to what we have done, we may convince ourselves ha, t~at it has been a lot. Many fraternities, local and naj thf t10nal, have abolished kidnaping and paddling; "Bel ag, Week~" have been converted to "Help Weeks;" w~ enj ., sor gage _m community service projects; other promotwna Sch practtces have been embarked upon. Recently I read of the activities of a certain publicity I committee of. the NIC in which they professed to b~ plannmg the mclusion of some articles favorable to th I fraternity system in major magazines. Yet I have seen no such articles in the two years since this committee report was presented . What happened?




Such a lackadaisical attitude seems to be prevai!i~~

th~o~ghout the fraternity system today. Are fi:aternttle

keepmg up with the fast pace of educational expanS1° 0' both physically and intellectually? Are they treatin~ t~~ modern studen't as he should be treated-as an tnd pendent individual of high character? For the most part I would say emphatically: "No!" THE

k is ve al Jg

. If our established chapters cannot keep pace with IUcreasing enrollments; if new fraternities are not being ~reated to supplement the old; then our system is slidlUg backwards. Every chapter of every fraternity should ~ake stock of its own overall condition. If one question ts answered honestly, then the chapter stands in good stead at least from the adverse publicity angle.

tion of malpmctices are all steps forward. Let's take stock of our individual chapter faults, admit them and correct them. All these things will take time-but now is the time to begin. We are now living in a rocket age-let's get our ancient fraternity system up to the launching pad and shoot upward.

"Are we doing anything in our activities that could lead to maiming or destroying the life of one of our rnembers or prospective members either by intent or accident?"


This question may have many implications. A blow from a paddle just slightly misguided may very easily take the life of a pledge. So might excessive physical e_xercise. So might excessive drinking. Any such activiltes must be abolished by all chapters. Once we clean our own houses, we may embark on campaigns to erase the dark shadows cast on the fraternity system. There are many ways in which we may t~prove our lot. Urban schools have particular possibdities in joining in civic and community affairs. Such activities might well be coordinated by the IFC's of the respective schools. Fraternities at campus schools must support and lead college activities, establish scholarship programs, and participate also in civic affairs if such are available as well as become financially stable.

ch ter eir

Everything good we do must be publicized, and we rnust do no bad. The vast majority of the public is still Uninformed as to current fraternity practices. Should they know about them? If you say, "No," then you're Wrong. We should be proud of our heritage and our current modes of operation.




tat Jet be

It has been said, "To gain an informed friend is to lose an uninformed enemy." Local IFC's could do a great service to the system by issuing some type of literature; i.e. pamphlets, giving information about their own local fraternity system to be distributed to all incoming freshmen. This literature should include an intelligent discussion of the system, both pros and cons, with favor~b l e articles by various school officials if possible. Honest tnformation such as this endorsed by our colleges would certainly have a positive effect on incoming students and parents alike.


ily in hiS

ra· al· es,


High school students about to enter our colleges rarely have any idea of what a college fraternity really is, and the ideas they usually have are misconceptions. Here ell ,n- . again the NIC could be of invaluable aid by producing ~al some type of general literature to be distributed to high Schools and prep schools.

Finally, there must be many fraternity men in the publication business, both newspaper and magazine. Why can't we impose on them to give us space for favorable publicity. Many chapters do outstanding jobs in various fields. Let's publicize these activities. National officers must be held at fault for their failures in these lines. They must promote publicity through their own individual influence and their associates' influence. We must gain positive recognition for our positive actions and eliminate our negative actions in toto. Pledge codes, community services, and elimina~UGusr,

He Takes Ohio Deanship Speaker, Alabama House DR. ROY M. KOTTMAN, Alpha Omicron '38, Iowa State College, who has been Dean of the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Home Economics at West Virginia University, became Dean of the Ohio State University College of Agriculture and Home Economics and Director of the Ohio Experiment Station at Wooster, effective June 1. Dean Kottman went to West Virginia University from Iowa State University July 1, 1958.

Dean Roy M. Kollman

At 42, the new Dean has tailored an enviable career, marked from its beginning by outstanding energy, initiative, scholarship, and leadership. He was born on a farm near Thornton, Iowa, December 22, 1916, and grew up there. After his graduation from high school, he worked for three years to earn enough money to enroll at Iowa State College (now Iowa State University) in 1937. He received the B.S. Degree from Iowa State in 1941, the M.S. Degree from the University of Wisconsin in 1948, and the Ph.D. Degree from Iowa State in 1952. While Dean Kottman's basic field is animal science, particularly genetics and breeding, his primary interests in recent years have tended more toward the broader aspects of agricultural education in general. Based on both his work and writings, his chief concerns have been the direction and adequacy of agricultural curriculums in the land-grant colleges and universities in meeting the demand for agricultural graduates, and the shifting in the number of students who seek education in overall agricultural pursuits, sometimes called "agribusiness." During the past year, Dean Kottman served as Secretary of the Division of Agriculture of the American Association of land-Grant Colleges and State Universities and as Chairman of the division's Resident Instruction Committee on Organization and Policy. He is currently Chairman of the Agribusiness Subcommittee, a role in which he has addressed the association on a national project on the recruitment, education, and placement of agricultural students. He was recently elected to the Executive Committee of the association's Division of Agriculture and Secretary of the division's Resident Instruction Section and Committee on Organization and Policy. Dean Kottman is a member of the Presbyterian Church, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Society of Animal Production of which he is the recent Chairman of the teaching committee; and Sigma Xi and Phi Kappa Phi, honorary societies. 12

Pi Kappa Phi and the Academic Community By the Reverend Chaplain 0. Z. White Erskine College



(The Rev. Mr. 1JVhite is an altttniiUS of Furman University. H e was initiated into D elta Chapter thet·e in 1944.)

The thoughts that are presented here are the outcome of a discussion one night during my participation in the Presbyterian College Religious Emphasis Week. My brother Pi Kapps and I were discussing the modern dilemmas of fraternities when we faced the question, can we justify our existence on the campus today? We might as well face the facts; the vast majority of the academic world today thinks that we cannot. THE ANTI-FRATERNITY ATTITUDE

The pressures under which fraternities must operate today result from a combination of factors, most of which are on the political and social level. World unrest has bred an attitude of religious reaction, and many of these well-meaning people brand fraternities as "non"Christian" or "anti-religious." Political reaction has further demanded that educational institutions be conservative to such an extent that "liberal education" is no longer liberal at all. Many maintain that since fraternities are secret orders based on selection, they are not democratic, while others say fraternities breed inequality and separation, and man should be free and equal in America. THE FRATERNAL HERITAGE

There is much in local chapters on which we could improve, I know; but much of the criticism we get is not fair. The fraternal heritage is anything but irreligious. As a matter of fact, fraternal ideas have been present early in most religions. The pagan Greeks had fraternities of a sort, but the Jews had fraternities also. The Dead Sea Scrolls are the remainder of the library of a fraternity-type group called the Essenes, which was active around a hundred years before Christ, and was dedicated to the disciplines of scholarship, worship, and brotherhood. Pi Kappa Phi (and I assume the majority of the major fraternities) sees religion as basic in the life of the student. In our own fraternity, this is stated in the vows. As to the objection to "secret societies," Christianity itself in its primitive state had its secret rites (called the Missa Fidelium) to which only those who had proven faithfulness and knowledge of the "brotherhood" were allowed. And, the early Church received criticism and even persecution from ill-informed critics because of this. The idea that fraternities are not democratic is not fair, either. While man is born equal in opportunity, he is not born equal in ability, environment, or personality. Any "I.Q." or aptitude test administered to any group of people will testify to the fact of a basic 16

inequality among men. In addition to this, man is by nature gregarious; we do not choose to live alone. We £nd among every area of American society peer groups, or like-minded people who relate to each other simply because they enjoy being with one another. Fraternity, as does friendship, depends on the tw 0 laws of association (if people are to like one another they must take time to be together) and communication (knowledge and friendship depend for their enrichment upon the expression of that relationship} Fraternity is natural, and exists, whether in organized form or not.

Lea pra: tior

Nothing we have said, however, justi£es the exis.tence of Pi Kapps in particular within the academ1c community today. Students of the United States colleges and universities are floating in a sea of middle class mediocrity. In South Korea, students revolted and overthrew the government; at the same time an Am~r­ ican student group was hanging its basketball coach 111 effigy because the team lost a game. Hungarian s~u­ dents this year have continued their studies in sp1te of being refugees and under almost unbelievable handicaps of poor equipment, lack of food, fuel, and shelter; in an American University, students had a mass meeting in protest against the lack of desserts at the evening meal. This is the tragedy of our era. United States stu· dents have no sense of involvement in the worldThere is no sense of purpose evident in the academic community, other than the grey flannel suit and tw0 ' car garage which will spell success for us in the futur_e. Fraternities are no exception. Perhaps our grandchlldren will call ours the "age of unconcern"-unconcern about our world; unconcern about our position in the world; even no concern about our own campuses. CAMPus CoNSCIENCE

I know that to many this will sound like straigh~ from cubesville, but I am going to say it anyway_: think that Pi Kapps have a great opportunity facmg them today. The nation is waiting for men who ~re willing to pay the price to be great. It would take 1n· testinal fortitude (the preacher's term for guts!) to pay that price. The £rst price we must pay would be that of o-uJJ look. Pi Kappa Phi was never meant to be a mutu_a back-slapping society. There is so much to be done 111 the world; there is no time for sitting around in little THE

groups telling each other what fine fellows we are. The question we must as.k ourselves is not, "how much can we get out of our world?" but rather, "how much can we put into our world?" The second price would be change of purpose. On meeting night, we deck ourselves out in our Ivy League unifom1s and join together in the fraternity prayer, "may the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable to our group, 0 Lord ... " It takes true courage to be different. The third price would be change in attitude in the pledge outlook. We need to change the sales pitch We make to pledges from, "this is what Pi Kappa Phi has to offer you," to, "this is what you have to offer the fraternity." We who are brothers of Pi Kappa Phi have a great tradition, and within th e framework of our fraternity We have a great opportunity for meaningful existence Within the academic community and our world today. Do we dare to pay the price? ----------~K¢'----------

Of Rushing-Pledge Training-Scholarship-etc. a la Mu Chapter-Dul\:.e By HISTORIAN BOB CONOLEY Mu, Duke University

THREE MAJOR aspects of fraternity life stand in need of emphasis: Rushing, Pledge Training, and Scholarship. With our off-cycle Rmh program first semester of this academic year, we pledged three men who have since been initiated. During the University's regular msh period, which lasted for twelve days in the middle of February, Mu was especially successful. Twenty-seven men Brother Bob Conoley were pledged, resulting in a tie with two other campus fraternities for the largest Spring pledge class. Surprisingly enough, none of these men was easily "caught," and in no case did we compromise desired standards for membership. Not only is this our largest pledge class in some time, it is also one comprised of "first fifteen" men throughout. Part of our achievement can be attributed to the success of the rush T earn System, in which the brotherhood is divided into a half dozen teams, each including both the best and the average of rushers. Each team was assigned several rushees for their particular attention. Combine this with one or two brothers striving to build an intimate personal friendship with each man, and you will have the formula of Mu's "goldstrike." Our Pledge program has been oriented around a subjective approach. Its general objectives include the preparation of the neophyte for participation in the active fraternity through the development of a respect for scholastic achievement, a respect for the traditions and ideals of the fraternity, and an insight into the mechanisms of the Chapter and the National organizations. Furthermore, we strive for unity and organization within the pledge class; we strive also to develop the pledge's social effectiveness and poise and to assure his respect for his associates in stronger bonds of loyalty and friendship. In pursuit of these ends, we require a pledge to attend all registered fraternity functions as well as to spend at least five hours a week socially (off-duty) with the brotherhood (he has the option of studying with a brother in 18


the latter). We have instituted a point system wherein he is required, at his own discretion of time, to gain one hundred points a week in activities around the house. Moreover, he is required to become familiar with in· formation about the active membership, Jearn two fraternity songs weekly, participate in class work sessions, and, with the other pledges, to take a p ledge trip and turn in a project. The adherence to such a program JS insured by Rat Courts, Work Sessions, Fun'n'Game Ses· sions, and loss of points for failure in responsibilities. The pledge class itself is organized in a manner simi lar to the chapter and must participate in weekly meetin.glecture periods g iven by brothers on aspects of fraterntty life. All p ledges are assigned to Chapter committees as ex-officio members for experience in select operation~. What are the particular merits of our program? As JS evident, the pledge may budget his own time in fu lfilli~g point requirements; beyond this, the time not spent tn group requirements is his own. The program is subjec· tive in that the pledge determines his extra-fraternity obligations (academic, campus job, etc.) and, in co~­ junction with the Pledge Committee and Warden, hts pledging participation is adjusted to his own abilities and schedule. Hence, the statement that Mu has "twen· ty-seven pledge programs" this semester is not erroneous; all twenty-seven are expected to provide a preparation for active fraternity membership though they may ap· proach it in assorted manners best suited to their par· ticular situations. Finally, near the core of Mu's pledge program, is the element so often overlooked: sound scholastic emphasis! Lately, our Scholarship program has become prominent in fraternity affairs, ranking along with the Social and Rush agendas. The Scholarship Committee, in the past a minor organ, has responded to a University challenge for "fraternities to justify their existence" by expanding its operations. Of course, the fratern ity study hall continues to be maintained, as well as the chapter files. Recently we instituted a file on professors and courses to provide the brothers a fam ili arity with the varying qualities of curriculum. In add ition, a fi le of "gratis" fraternity tutors has been established for a number of courses. Through bi-monthly surveys, the comm ittee keeps tab on individual averages and the fra· ternity's. T his last semester the chapter instituted two awards: one for overall individual improvement and the other for the highest average in the chapter, to stimul ate competition. Similarly, in our pledge program, we have endeavored to cater to the neophytes' academ tC problems by making study hall compulsory for three hours per evening if an average drops below its previous mark. Active members ass igned to each pledge are re· sponsible for checking with each of the neophytes' pr.o· fessors at mid-term to determine if performance is sattS· (Continued THE

A SAD DAY for coaches and fans of the Roanoke Col-

lege Maroons-the day in August when Richard John Emberger, Xi ' 59, receives his Bachelor of Arts Degree, signify ing his completion of all competitive athletics at the college. "I think he is the best all-around ath lete we have ever had at Roanoke," comments Homer Bast, registrar and track adviser. " Dick has proven himself, in my opinion , to be the finest athlete in Virginia this year. There is



almost nothing he can't do and do it better than the next fellow." Those are glowing words of tribute. But the 21-yearold star from Bloomfield, N . J-, has merited this acclaim. He has co-captained three teams this past school yearcross country, swimming, and indoor and outdoor track. He has won a total of 11 varsity letters in the three sports and has proven outstanding in each. But all this success didn't just come by chance. Dick has spent countless hours on the practice field and in the pool improving himself. A good example of how the hard work has paid off is in swimming where Dick won the Little Eight diving title three years and would have won a fourth time if he

Brother Richard John ("Dick") Emberger, Xi '59, Roanoke College's "finest athlete."

hadn't been hit by mumps just before the meet his sophomore year. Yet, when Dick came to Roanoke he admits, "I hardly knew one end of the board from the other." Back home in Bloomfield, Dick lettered in cross country and track. Although he did well in each, it wasn't until he arrived at Roanoke that he really began to develop. His top high jump in scholastic competition was 6-1Y2· He was considered only a consistent 5-10 jumper. But only this past Winter he set an all-time indoor mark for a Virginia collegiate jumper. It was a tremendous 6-5 Y<t jump in the state indoor meet. This is especially outstanding when one considers Emberger stands only 5-11 himself. The jump was only one of two records Emberger set during the meet. The other was a time of 8. 7 seconds in the 70-yard high hurdles. The two firsts, along with second places in the pole vault and broad jump, made Emberger the meet's outstanding individual with a total of 16 points-against the state's best. The rock-hard 170-pounder has one big ambitionto make the 1964 Olympic team in the decathlon. He has competed in most of the 10 events that make up the test. Dick should get plenty of top training during the next four years and should be in top physical condition. He'll spend most of that time in the U. S. Marines. Emberger spent 12 weeks last Summer in Marine platoon leaders school at Quantico. He will be commissioned a second lieutenant upon graduation and expects to report to Quantico about September 1. Bast thinks Emberger is far from his peak. "He's improving all the time," Bast says of his star. "There's no telling just how far he can go in track. He has all the tools-desire, ability, and the love of hard work. I'd say he had an excellent chance of making the Olympic team in 1964." Wouldn't it be nice to have a former Maroon listed on the U. S. Olympic squad? As Homer says, the chances are good. And many of Dick's fans believe he is just the fellow to do it. -----~K¢--------

factory. Under this program, last semester paid off in ~cademic dividends, with Mu moving up to fourth place In overall averages of the nineteen fraternities on Duke Campus. Two other areas which deserve mention are the committees of Alumni Relations and Athletics. Alumni Relations has been active in disseminating its literature to the alumni, most recently in the form of a "kit" which included a copy of the Chapter's social schedule, a copy of the newspaper, an alumni news bulletin, etc. As usual, their work has been characterized by efforts to keep their Jiles up-to-date. The most spontaneous breakthrough came with the circulation of "no-soak" letters, which did 1101 ask for financial contributions. The delighted response increased the assets of the Alumni Trust Fund tenfold. Athletics has become the focal point of chapter spirit, with participation on football and basketball teams. Quite often this area is neglected as only a minor expression of fraternal spirit. For Mu it 20

has become a rallying point. Under the direction of an enthusiastic athletics chairman, the chapter attendance at games exceeded that at fraternity meetings, and the football team walked off with an Intramurals Division Championship trophy. --------~K¢-------

Honors J(eep Coming By BROTHER JOHN REMIAS, Archon Alpha Upsilon, Drexel

BROTHER Francis deSales Friel, Alpha Upsilon '56, Drexel, has made the typical rags to riches story come true in a big way. From selling peanuts at the swank Philadelphia Country Club to being elected 1959 President of the American Society of Civil Engineers, an organization of 42,000 members, Brother Friel has led a star-studded career. Brother Friel's most recent honor came this Summer when the George Warren Fuller A ward of the Pennsylvania Section of the American Water Works Association was presented to him. The award was made "in recognition of the eminence he has achieved in the field of engineering and the outstanding service he has rendered to the water utility profession and to the Pennsylvania Section." June 1 of last year Pennsylvania Military College conferred upon him an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Laws. Previously he received an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Engineering from Drexel, his alma mater, and an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Laws from the University of Scranton. Brother Friel's career has encompassed a vast variety of both curricular and extra-curricular activities. He ·first distinguished himself by winning a Distinguished Service Cross and a Purple Heart-both in World War I action as an Engineer Lieutenant. In 1931 Brother Friel helped organize the Albright & Friel Corporation, consulting engineers, and became its Vice-President. In 1945 he became owner and President of this organization and has led it on an exceptionally successful basis since. Among his many other accomplishments, Brother Friel has been President of the elite American Institute of Consulting Engineers, head of the Federation of Sewage and Industrial Wastes Associations, Chairman of the U. S. Committee on Large Dams, and Vice-Chairman of the Drexel Board of Trustees. Brother Friel became an alumnus member of Alpha Upsilon Chapter at the Supreme Chapter Meeting of 1956 held in Philadelphia. In February of the same year, he was named "Philadelphia's Outstanding Engineer" by the local d1apter of the National Society of Professional Engineers.

Brother Neal Sells Bonds for Uncle Sam te v-

)f r·


Brother William H. Neal , Eps il on '16, D avidson College, is on a year's leave of absence from a Seni or Vice-Presidency of Wachovia Bank and Trust Company, Winston-Salem, N. C., in order to sell U. S. Savi ngs Bonds for U ncl e Sam. The 63-year-old banker and pub li c relations expert pointed out, when interviewed by AI Perry of the Winston -Salem Journal and Seuthzel in the Spring, that sales "are not bad but they cou ld be better." The program's goa l for 1960 is $4.6 billion in sales. In order to help insure that the goal is met or surpassed, Brother Neal and other treasury officials are well along in a 26-stop program of meetings all over the nation with top business and industrial executives. The effort was just getting under way when Brother Neal arrived in Washington in February. At these meetings, emphasis is placed on th e desirability of the payroll-savings plan of bond purchasing and the necessity of



sou nd fiscal pol,icies both on individual and nati onal levels. Volunteers and staff wo rkers are following up the meetings, endeavoring to sell the businessmen on getting behind the payroll drive in their shops and plants. Brother Neal exp lai ned that the growth of the program wi ll continue to depend on the large ly-volunteer salesmanshi p that has characterized bond sales si nce their preWorld War II inception. Brother Nea l, experienced in the bond program long before his appointment, said: "What we're after is a fair share of the new savi ngs dollars. We want to encourage, to co nvert millions to the saving habit." Brother Neal seemed confid ent th at the added emphasis on the advantages of savings through payroll deductions would pay off-for the individual and for the treasury whi ch fi nances around 1 S per cent of th~ nati onal debt wi th the 42.6 billion worth of Series E and H bonds outstanding.

A Guggenheim Fellowship made it possible for him to do graduate work on a frequency modulated radio altimeter for aircraft and receive an M.S. in E.E. Degree in 1930. He then joined the Bel l Telephone Labo-

ratories, Inc., where he engaged in the development of radio transmitters for civilian and military aircraft. In 1937 he undertook further development of the FM radio altimeter and successfu ll y comp leted it in 1938. He received the 1938 Lawrence B. Sperry Award for this work, with a citation reading: "For the development and first practical appl ication of the terrain clearance indicator." With the onset of the war emergency, Brother Newhouse was placed in charge of a group of engineers engaged in the development of military airborne radars and computers . Since World War II, he has been in charge of development work in the fields of radar, electronic analogue and digita l computers, radio communication and integrated weapon systems.

Reinhard Is Dubbed HOutstanding Young Farmer" Recognition for a job well done came to Brother George G. Reinhard, Nu '5 1, University of Nebraska, in the Spring of 1959 when he was dubbed as the "Outstand ing Young Farmer" in the Broken Bow (Nebr.) trade area. Brother "Jerry" Reinhard , who owns and operates his own 240-acre farm as well as 520 acres of rented la nd , was named to receive the award at the annual Awards Banquet held in Broken Bow. He received a plaque from the Broken Bow Jaycees, honoring him for his achievements. Brother Reinhard's farming career started early. While sti ll in high school, he rented a farm near Broken Bow. With some cooperation from the weather man, be harvested a good crop that year. Rather than let this money sli p away, he invested the income from the crops in the 24路0-acre farm he now owns. Cooperating with the Soil Conservation Service, Brother Reinhard and his land ow ner, George Guthery, have turned a rundown, badly eroded farm into a highly productive unit.
