Who Is

Member?

By EXECUTIVE SECRETARY DURWARD W. OWEN

A!

OFFICIAL REPRESENTATIVE of a Fraternity is often asked to name the "best" member of his organization. Need less to say, it is a most difficult question to answer and normally goes unanswered.

Recently, tl1is inquiry was repeated several times to me in the course of a few hours and left its imprint on my mind everal days later, I was doing considerable research involving a stt1dy of some of the past issues of The Star and La111P· An article entitled "Tribute to a Brother" appeared interesting, so I read it in its entirety. Pi Kappa Phi means many things to many people. I am certain that no one person has obtained all the lofty ideah as expressed in Pi Kappa Phi. A personal evaluation leaves me with the impression that the best Pi Kapp must certain!! encompass as many of the "eternal truths" of Pi Kappa Phi as is J.X>Ssible. Further thought on the subject reveals, at least to me, that the best Pi Kapp should express, as a person, the foJioll' ing attributes: Humility, Loyalty, Charity, Love. I don't think the Fraternity could condone the action of an Executive Secretary who would express personal preference for one Pi Kapp over others. However it is in his province to mention examples which we may em ul ate. Such an examPle is found in Ensign \;I,Tilliam Freeny ("Bill" ) \;I,Tard, Epsilon '38, Davidson College. For those who were not privileged ~· know him personally, his last will and testament gives ample proof of his character traits, traits wh ich caused him to b< appreciated and admired by those who knew him. Soon after he completed his will, he was reported by the avo Island during \Vorld War II.

c· '.' ~he sum of the whole matter is this; that our · · 11y un Iess Jt · IS · r lVI d IZatio n cannot survive matena ce e~med spiritually.

Allegiance to God Is Necessary ~~s I . read this quotation by President Woodrow ing son, It seemed so appropriate today, as if it were be--G spoken momentari ly. Let me quote a little further overnor Hatfield went on to say: in "The great American Ideal is certain ly centered ha and based upon a fundamental truth; that is, to Ill ve political freedom, men have to be governed to ore _than just by political institutions. If we are th e~J oy our liberties, we can only en joy them to se~ ullest when we find our faith, comm it ourth Ves, and give allegiance to an authority higher an ourselves--and that is God."

ou;~ese qu_otations as I read them made me think of of y ratern,ty, and I wondered in my mind how many ou-a lumni and undergraduate-are sp iritually oriM~y

ented. How many of you have recognized a need for spiritual help ? And then I we nt on to reflect in my own in stance that although I had recognized the need for sp iritual help I did not apply it when I was an undergraduate. Therefore, the sooner you do, the sooner you succeed . Church Attendance Urged I would admonish all of you to put into practice at the undergraduate chapter level the thought of going to church together. If you cannot do it every Sunday, do it at least once a month. Always go to church together as a part of your formal initiation ceremony. Advise the minister of the church that you are coming, and he will recognize you . You wi ll be. su rprised how this will lift up your initiation ~eremony and g ive it the climax that it needs, and that 1t was mtended to have. Do not hesitate to identify yourse lf as a Christian and a Pi Kappa Phi, for if you do both you will not on ly be assisting your Country in its _struggle ~gainst nonChristian influences but also you wdl be domg yourself a justice and in kind your Fraternity. I think there is no greater goal for a young man, or for that matter an alumnus, to reach than to recognize the need for spiritual guidance and to ide~tify_ him_self thus ly.. Through such a spiritual mobtlizatiOn m P1 Kappa ~h1, I know that we as in dividuals w t!l benefit and 111 turn we as a Fraternity and as a Nation wi ll benefit from the actions of you men.

Communism too mu ch credit for th e current wave of student rebe lli on, and have given too litt le to the st udents themse lves. After all , if a fea r of mand atory loya lty oaths, a fee ling th at compulsory ROTC is unnecessary, and a conviction th at nuclear weapons should be ban ned, are in dicat ions of Communist sympathy, th en we can damn large numbers of educators, mi litary leaders, and theo log ians too. If these are a ll to be in the same boat, it had better be a large boat. [BROTHER OWEN' S COMMENT: The pt·agmatic ideals of James, as well as tbe materialistic thougbts of Marx, Huxley. etc., seem to be directed towards the all imfJortant "e11d t·esults," atld the method of app,·oaching this end, hc111ing little- consequence. Tbe modem "libet·al" thought seems to be guided by this same expressiml. l disagree and violently so. To o[1pose compulsory military trainh1g as a mal/er of princifJal is PI'O/Jet· fot· the individual so inclined, hower•er. the t·emlting dett·iment to our nation, if overtly exp ressed, cannot be condoned, even if the opposition is delt'imental to the end t·esult of "ft·eedom of thought." To oppose the cellsm·e of a professor for teaching "free lot;e' · is all right if an individual is so h1clined to fJractic e same. Howevet·, if as a by-/Jroduct of his o[Jposition, we are endangering the m orals, health, respect, etc., of our young people, and also et·eating a correspondh1g decline of the family tmit, then l must contend that the stimulation of thought as an end result is 110t jttStified.} You are quite correct when you say that students are "easiest to tempt." Th is makes freedom of thought all the more necessary during co ll ege. This is the time for a Jot of ideas, some good and some bad. The problem is not to protect the student from these ideas, but to deal w ith them openl y, to help the stud ent Jearn to judge what is good and what isn't. It is not enoug h to keep him from thinking for fo ur years, in hopes that he wi ll be too busy and too h appy to think later . Fratern iti es, ou rs among th e rest, are losing gro und precisely because they do not enco urage fresh new views. D o you really want the idea li sti c, rad ica l boy to turn hi s ideas and efforts to good use? Then make the fraternity a haven for new ideas and a place where young minds ca n sift va lues and decide for themselves what is right and what is wrong. And always keep before your young minds the fact that trad iti ons must be a backg round for thought; th ey must not rep lace it. It is good to fee l th at our fraternity is g iving such problems thoug ht, and I can only hope th at acti on wi ll be fitted to thi s thought. Th e fraternity system is und er attack, but it can w in the support of edu ca tors very simply, by showin~ that it is wholehearted ly behind the goa l of ed ucators: the st1mulatt0n of thoug ht among the yo ung people who are best equipped for it.

District Conclaves Span the Nation DISTRICT I CHAPTERS will not hold their Conclave until December 2. Conflicting campus affairs prevented the holding of the Conclave during the Spring of the year as is customary. District II Chapters met in Philadelphia, with Alpha Upsilon as host. Alumni participation was most gratifying. New District President Robert Lambert was in charge, with this being his first official function as District President of District II. Several representatives of District I attended also. The District III Conclave, under District President Jesse Fisher, was well attended, with more than 130 undergraduates and alumni represented. A highlight of this Conclave was Brother Dick Young's address at the final banquet. Here are excepts from this speech: "If I were to have a text, I would take it from a recent report of Brother Loeffler, one of our Traveling Traveling Counselor Bill Loefller presided over the sessions of District VII Conclave held at Beta Omicron, Northwestern State College, in March.

Counselors, who gave his impressions of a visit 1' chapter houses in various parts of the .country. One oi the important impressions he said he gained on many ol those chapter visits was the lack of regard for tP' Fraternity's Ritual. He was disturbed by the careless ~oo slipshod manner in which, at some p laces, the initiattOf was put on. "The report disturbed me, too. The Ritual of oo! Fraternity is the foundation stone on which our Orde is built. It is surely one of the Fraternity's fundame ntal5, Ritual provides the pattern of our brotherhood-all orde in every phase of our life, functionings in the phystC1 and material world, are based on ritual. The methoof our very breath ing is a ritual of life. " Our ritual presents the ideals of our Fratern ity 1' envisioned by our Founders nearly three score year ago, and it exemplifies the qualities and attributes ~路 character which we require for membership. At ' times it should be earnestly and sincerely approacheJ seriously and solomnly presented so that the neophyte through dignity and poise of presentation, will ]ea 11 what is路 required of a true brother. "In our Fraternity we have been taught the lessons o: Truth and Friendship, and when we see the Truth-tP路 real value of life-and appreciate Friendship one W1 ~ the other, we are exercising the fundamentals that undel gird our association together. "We must set examples of good morals by standiot up for what we have been taught as right and for wh1 we as men know to be right by condemning all for~ of dishonesty and cheat ing and in our own lives aV0 1 ing the appearance of evil. "By that I don 't mean that we are to be sissy pat11' because men of honor, of cou rage, and of integrity ]1a'路

IJ THE PROPORTION OF ALUMNI in Pi Kappa Phi who remain interested after college days is probably as good or better than in most other Fraternities. If you scan our membership list, you will find many ten-year men, a smaller number of twenty-five-year men, a scattering of thirtyfive-year men , but how many fifty-six-year men? Herman Cole!! Fuchs of Alpha Xi Chapter is one of these unusual alumni. Brother Fuchs was one of the founders of Psi igma, a local Fraternity which became Alpha Xi Chapter at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn. This event occurred in 1901, just 60 years ago. In 1928 the local joined Pi Kappa Phi.

He has for years been 1 member of the Universali Church in Brooklyn, whert for over twenty-five yeari he has been Treasurer ol the Sunday School. NO: long ago he was given 3 testimonial dinner in recoE路 nition of his services. Brother Fuchs is actil1 in business. He is a Con su iting Chemist with th1 Permatex Company, a larE1 automobile accesory manu路 factur ing fiDm, and durin! his many years with it, h1 has invented several ol their most profitable prod ucts. Brother Fud1s has bt come an expert collector ol postage stamps. One roolf in his home is devoted ti his collections from ar over the world.

Two Sons Are Pi Kapps

Brother and Mrs. Fuchs live in Brooklyn, N. Y. They have two sons, Robert, who attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and became a member of Alpha Tau Chapter in 1932, and Frederick Edward, who went to Georgia Tech and joined Iota Chapter in 1933.

Who may regret what was, since it has made Himself himself?

Shortly after the forming of Psi Sigma, Brother Fuchs was elected Treasurer of the chapter in 1901, and again in 1902 and 1903. In 1904 he became President.

NOW IS THE TIME!

Later, when the Fraternity was incorporated , he served as a Director from 1908 to 1912. He became President of the corporation in 1911, and served as Treasurer from 1907 to 1910. He has since served as Treasurer of the corporation from 1916 to 1960. One of our amateur statisticians has figured Brother Fuchs has handled and accounted for more than $100,000 during the period of his service.

NOW is the Time to make a contribution to the Devereux D . Rice Memorial Found ation. This trust fund is used "i n making scho larship loans to deserving students at selected institutions of learning in the United States of America, and for other purposes consistent therewith," as is outlined _in the foundation's papers of incorporation.

In 1951, Brother Fuchs and the other founders of Psi igma were given a testimonial dinner.

There is urgent need for scholarships and building loans from this f und . What will you give NOW that TODAY'S NEEDS may be met?

His College Activities Were Varied

Brother Fuchs was equally active in the extra-curricular activities at Poly. He was class Treasurer from 1902 to 1904, and held the same office in the Chemical Society. He acted in the Poly Play of 1901 (feminine part in "A Night Off"), served on the Midwinter Ball Committee, and was a member of the editorial board of The Polytecbnic, the college magazine.

UNDER-SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY in the Kennedy administration, Brother Henry H. Fowler, Xi '27, Roanoke College, will probably find his debating prowess developed at Roanoke College still of great benefit in Washington. Brother Fowler was " a member of probably the most outstanding of many Wid e World Photos debate teams to represent Brother Henry H. Fowler the College," a story in the February issue of Th e Roanoke Collegian declared. The team was undefeated in 1929. In glancing over the 1929 edition of Th e Rawenoch, one can find such designations beside his name as: Editor and Sports Editor of the Brackety-Ack, President oF the Hi-Y, Vice-Pre.sident of his class, Secretary-Treasurer of the General Athletic Association, President of the Roanoke Club, Special Honor Student in English, member of Tau Kappa Alpha, Debater, member of Pi Kappa Phi, German Club, Basketball and Baseball squads, and member of Harlequins. "His climb to national importance has been steady since leaving the campus," the Collegian pointed out. "He went on to earn his law degree at Yale University and begin law practice in Washington. From 1936 until 1946 he held many important government positions under Presidents Roosevelt and Truman." A native of Roanoke, Va. , Brother Fowler returned to governmental work in 1951 as Deputy Administrator of the National Production Board. Later, he became head of the Defense Production Administration, and in 1952 he was appointed Chief of the Office of Defense Mobilization, a position he held u11til the end of the Truman administration. For the -past several years, he has been senior partner in the law firm of Fowler, Leva, Hawes, and Symington in Alexandria. Brother Fowler is a member of the Board of Trustees of Roanoke College, having served since 1954. Other activities include Rotary, Lansing and Michig1n Chambers of Commerce, City Club, Elks, and the Lansing River Improvement Committee. "In my spare time (during trout season there is spare time) you'll find me fishmg . . . and when there's no fishing, my hobbies are woodworkmg and filling inside straights." Brother and Mrs. Jepson have two sons, Noel and Jan, and a daughter, Susan. 7


Broadway Sign [(ing! ATT ENTION-GETTING is indeed big business. Competition for the attention of the American public is steadily increasing in intensity. But getting attention for clients is superbly accomplished by a man who has won for himself the cognomen of "Sign King of Broadway." This master of the spectacular is Brother Douglas Leigh, Alpha Epsilon '26, University of Brother Douglas leigh Florida. The August 14 issue of The American Weekly carried an article by Thomas J. Fleming, entitled "How They Catch Your Eye," with a second deck, "Signs of the Times Are Clever-and Expensive." In this article, based on an interview with Brother Leigh, the author learned that a spectacular sign costs from $25,000 to a third of a million dollars. To the interrogation, "What makes people stop and look at a sign?'' Brother Leigh explained that motion gets eight to ten times as much attention as a static sign. With light and color added, "you have the ultimate in an attention-getting device. Then you hold all the elements together with a specific rhythm and the effect is complete." Size was given as the main element, with nothing less than a thousand feet necessary for a spectacular. Brother Leigh said his ideas come from everywhere -a newspaper story, children blowing bubbles, waterfalls, horses, pets, pretty girls, babies. From the time the idea is conceived until it is sketched and refined is usually two months. The building and erection can take from two to six months. The length of time signs can be effective varies. The smoke rings blowing out of a cigarette company spectacular have provided identification and attention for 18 years. Mr. Leigh pointed out that in one respect a sign is like a play. "With a changing audience and good drama, it will run and run. One Coca-Cola sign, which gives the weather and temperature, has been up for 22 years. That's more than four times the run of 'South Pacific.' We give the sign a face lifting just to modernize it, but recently we were forced to rebuild it completely - the mechanism wore out." Brother Leigh's signs are animated in a variety of ways, ranging from a series of fl ashing lights to a completely animated story. "What do the 1960's hold for spectacular signs?" Mr. Fleming asked. "Advances in electronics, paints, and plastics will open up unrealized advances in the field. We may find buildings erected as spectaculars, in the form of a soap 8

By Traveling Couns~lor Bill Loeffler

There are many reasons why a strong chapter becomes weak and a weak one remains poor instead of progressing. In my visits to Pi Kapp chapters throughout the country, I have found that nothing will replace a strong, well-planned pledge training program as the basis for building a strong chapter. The problems of poor leadership and administration, lack of organ ization, and the inability to solve chapter problems in many cases can be traced back to the pledge days of present members. If the pledge training given men is poor, then it is not unusual for them to become poor fraternity members. Pledge training is a period in which the pledge is expected to learn about the history and traditions of the fraternity, its aims and ideals, chapter operations, and the functions of the various officers and committees of a chapter. If harassment of the pledge takes the place of instruction and testing, the result is a pledge who knows little about the fraternity, and, because he is not aware of the full value of fraternity membership, tends to neglect his chapter and the national organization. Good pledge training will reduce the amount of time necessary for a new initiate to become familiar with the workings of the chapter. A new initiate should be able to asswne positions of authority and responsibility soon after his initiation instead of waiting out a time lag while learning how the chapter operates. Pledge training is progressive. If the proper spirit is instill ed in a pledge at the beginning, this spirit will carry over to f uture pledges. Also, the products of a good program will be prepared to see that good pledge train ing is carried on in the future, thus insuring a continuance of good leadersh ip and knowledge of fraternity operations. Good pledge train ing takes time, planning, and organization, but the benefits to be derived over the years make it essential for sound chapter operation. - - -- ·TrK<f>-

ALPHA OMEGA at the University of Oregon is beinE reinforced by an auxiliary composed of mothers, fathers, wives, alumni, and friends-all dedicated to the comfort and welfare of the chapter. At the invitation of The Star and Lamp, Mrs. I. ~j Weikel of Corvallis, Oreg. , mother of Brother Nel Weikel, has given highlights of the auxiliary's activitieS· "To start a group such as we have, there needs to _be a very clear and pressing reason," Mrs. Weikel sa1d· "Mine was to keep a roof over my son's head, see thai he had good food such as a fraternity cook can prepare, and see that his Greek affiliation stayed with him."

Chapter Needed Help Mrs. Weikel and Mrs. Eva Graves realized that the house could be operated to the advantage of the chapte~ if some help were given. There were other motbe~' and also fathers a nd alumni who felt the same way. Th 15 was when the auxiliary was organized. "We don 't call ourselves a Mothers' Club," lvfrS· Weikel explained. "We are the Auxiliary of Pi KapP.' Phi, and anyone who wants to give a helping hand 15 welcome. We have dues of $2 (or more, we hope) 1 year.

Youngest State Senator?

Earns Award

"A Lincolnite whose wealth of governmental experJ· ence belies hi s years may well be the nation's youngest state senator," Don W alton declared in a story published in the Lincoln Star January 10. He was referring to Brother Marvin E. Stromer, N~· U nivers ity of Nebraska, 27-year-old member of the 1961 Nebraska Legislature. Brother Stromer was elected to his first term last November at the age of 26. A rne!ll' ber of the only unicameral legislative body in the United States, he is very likely the youngest senator now servin8 One of his predecessors, Brother Charles S. Reed, ]'J~ '20, of Omaha was elected to the Nebraska Legislature at the age of 23. Brother Stromer is now associated with the First. Trust Company, Lincoln.

pRESENTATION of the "Outstanding District President Award of the Year" was made to Brother Robert Crossley, President, District I at the February meeting of the New York Alumni Chapter. Brother Ralph Noreen, former National Treasurer, made the presentltion. Brother Crossley was chosen to receive the award because of his sincere interest in Pi Kappa Phi and more particularly for his very active participation in the affairs of the undergraduate chapters in his district. The presentation was made before a group of Pi Kappa Phi alumni in Luchow's Restaurant, East 23rd St., New York City ..

Honors for Chi Brother

PI

BROTHER WILLIAM REYNOLDS ALLEN, Chi '58, Stetson University, brought many honors to his fraternity during his college career. Hailing from Wauchula, Fla., Brother Allen began his college career impressively enough by being named '' Outstanding Freshman Man" at Stetson. Next came hi.s selection as President of the Sophomore Class, Key Member of the Brother W. R. Allen Stetson Glee Club, VicePresident of the Baptist Student Union, and Chairman of the Diamond Jubilee Homecoming Committee. Other honors include: Outstanding Junior Cadet, Scabbard and Blade, President of Omicron Delta Kappa, President of Men's Council, and election to Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. Brother Allen was also on either the Honor Roll or the Dean's List every semester during his four years at Stetson. At graduation exercises in June, 1960, he was named Distinguished Military Student, recipient of the Paffon Award given to the Outstanding Male on Campus, and recipient of the Sullivan Award . A most fitting climax to Brother Allen's outstanding college career was his selection as the Most Outstanding College Student in the southeastern United States. In the future, Brother Allen plans to attend graduate school to prepare for a career as either a college teacher or an administrator. At the present, he is a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army Military Intelligence Service.

Trail of Tradition pi KAPPA

PHI is indebted to Brother Robert F. "$_· Meader, Alpha Tau '35, Rensselaer PolytechniC Institute, for two more additions to the Fraternity's col· lection of pins and fledge buttons of fraternities which were predecessors o chapters of Pi Kappa Phi. Brother Meader's donations are the pins and pledge buttons of Delta Sigma a n~ Beta Psi.

Brother Meader wrote the National Office that during hi s freshman year, 1925, at Middlebury Col· lege, Middlebury, Vt. , )Je be · was asked to join a small N Delta Sigma Pledge Button group of boys in founding a new fraternity as there tic seemed to be a g rowing br need for another chapter on the campus.

Tackle Ken Rice of Auburn

Auburn Tackle Is Stellar Performer HE MADE EVERY ALL-AMERICA team picked this year! We are speaking of Brother Kenneth Earl ("Ken") Rice, Alpha Iota, a senior at Auburn University. He was also SEC Lineman of the Year, offense and defense, and played in East-West game. Norm Carlson, Auburn's Sports Publicity Director, informed The Star and Lamp that Brother Rice is now top draft choice of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Buffalo Bills. Brother Rice, who comes from Bainbridge, Ga., is 21 years of age, 6 feet 2, and weights 250 pounds. The Auburn Football Brochure pointed out that he carries his weight so solid ly that he looks like about a 220pounder. He is the Southern Prep weightli fting champion with brute strength but also has the speed of a fu llback, the position he p layed in high school. His speed, power, and agility make him a natural any place, be it offense or defense. His movements and actions remind most of former Kentucky All-America Tackle Lou Michaels, the brochure stated . He represented Football Writers' All-America team on Perry Como television show last year. Dark-skinned and an avid outdoorsman, he would rather hunt and fish in spare time than do anything else. A year ago he married his coll ege tutor and completely straightened out scholastic problems in the process. 18

t

Unsung hero of many a fraternity house-the cook. But at Kappa, it's different. Gracie is the heroine of the culinary department. Her fine meals are a constant joy to the members of the chapter, to say nothing of guests.

Concerning scho larsh ip, it is a lleged that the emphasis is on the grade and the individual's contribution to the fraternity average, but not upon what · he learns. To an extent this is true, but only because of the emphasis on grades currently inherent in co ll ege life. The fraternity does not, however, press for a high overall average at the expense of a brother's freedom. Mass study hours are not invoked, nor are periodic checks made on brothers' grades, and this freedom has still kept Mu 01apter in the top four fraternities on campus. The concern of the scholarship committee is directed at the individual , with tutoring among the brothers available if an individual encounters scholastic difficulty. Study and assistance are left to the person's own initiative. Individual awards for scholastic achievement are maintained by the chapter as incentive to high scho lastic honors. Athletically speaking, sports, particularly the intramural program, are an exce ll ent outlet for pent-up energy, and another example of individuals working together as a team. Perhaps the most. perennial argument against fraternities is the socia l life of a fraternity man , because this, after all, is their reason for being. It is believed that he is constantly surrou nd ed by a social life that demands an excessive amount of time. The a nswer is that fraternities provide the best opportunity for a man to reach his social potential , but they do not demand that he explo it the opportunity. . Rush is the one goal that is mutually important for every member of a fraternity. Because new members are the lifeblood of the fraternity, it is to the best interests of the chapter and consequently to each brother that individual members take an active part in the Rush program . Rush is a required activity, yet it is to everyone's advantage because brothers are required to come out of themselves, to make contact with new people, and develop techniques of conversation. That the fraternity tries to make the most of an individua l's ability and talent, and encourages the expression of it, is backed by the fact that M u has for many years been one of the most active fraternities in campus leadership . Our motto for this past year has been "Unification thr~ugh Diversification." By this we mean that we are ab le to wcorporate every type of individual into a unified group. We have 56 active brothers, a pledge class of 27 (the largest on campus) this _semester, and are one of the largest chapters at Duke. In others of this size, there are definite cliques apparent to even the most casual 21


observer. There are none in Mu Chapter, and we are proud of this fact. This type of unity is stressed from the beginning of a man's association with Pi Kappa Phi because it is an integral part of our pledge training program. nity is stressed to pledges in everything they do-from work parties, to raids, to fun and games sessions-at all times, they are expected to work as a unified group of individuals, a team. Because this is such a basic point, it naturally carries over into active fraternity life. NU, UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA

Archon Warren Hill of Nu, University of Nebraska, is happy to report that an active alumnus of the chapter, Brother Marvin Stromer, at the age of 27, has been elected to the ebraska tate Senate. Another Pi Kapp who is active in the alumni group is Brother J. Benton White, an a lumnus of Omicron, L'niversity of Alabama, who is Assistant Director of the \X'esley Foundation at the University of Nebraska. The chapter's annual Christmas Party was a big success, alnng with several functions with sororities and the annual dance after the Help Week activities. Another annual party that was great as usual was the pledge party. The theme was beatnik. and several unusual costumes were seen in attendance. During Help Week the upstairs halls acquired a much needed new coat of paint. The Mothers' Club met recently and made some good suggestion for house improvement. Recently Nu initiated Ron Beers, Grand Island , Nebr.; Eugene Buglewicz, cottsbluff, Nebr.; Roger Dingeman, Spearfish, S.

"Xi Chapter held a Buffet Supper March 10 for all members, guests from the sororities on campus, and alumni," Historian Shiflett reported. "This type of gathering was found to be a very effective method in promoting better relationships between different fraternal orders on the campus.

In high school at Adena, Ohio, Tom won 11 letters and was captain of all three sports: football, baseball and basketball. "Big Train" al o made all-state baseball as a catcher.

FRATERNALISM-AN INDELIBLE MARK By Brother Mario lavicoli

The true va lu e of fraternities in prtsent-day co ll ege li fe is not realized by those forces bent upon discrediting the·Greekletter orga ni za tions; consequently, some people have formed a negative co nce~t of frate~nities. Actuafly, the attitude of fraternity men 1S more seno us at;d ·~~ture than .most people wou ld imagine. We feel that an tndlvldual who JS capable of constructively evaluati ng his surroundings .and. his fellow mao is one of society's greatest assets. Fratern1ty life offers a man the necessary opportuniti es to develop means for making such eva lu ations. Many men, upon graduation reali7e that they have missed the meaning of co ll ege. We must admtt that our pnmary purpose here at Drexel is to obtai n an ed ucation; however, ed ucation is not limited merely to the text. ~here are many ingredients that go into a well balance? educat1~ nal d1.et. Let us start with leadersh1p, a quality whiCh many men Jack, but could obtai n with .effort. There are. '!lllny . effie~, committee headships chairma nsh ipS and other pOSitions tn whiCh a person can dev~l op leaders hip abi lity. . Almost every n:'an who graduates at one time or another wtll ha~e men workmg under him The abi li ty to control these men dtplomatlcall~ could be . obta.in ed in a fraternity. Those men who enjoy competing in athletiCs could p lay in the interfraternity league which provides enj oyment and keen competition along with healthful exercise. . . It is interesttng to note that the fratermty we1ghed "average is above the Drexel all men's average. As you know, there is a rule established by the fratermt1es that states that a freshman ;11 ust have at least a 70 weighted average before he can receive a bid. 25

Each term, the fraternities have enjoyab le socia l schedu les with such events as the Interfraternity Ball , pring Week Ends, Mothers' Day Teas, Greek Week End , House Parties, and numerous other events. The fraternities also support all of Drexel's extra-curricular activities. Another benefit which on ly a fraternity can offer is brotherhood. Brotherhood is a friendship, companionship, respect, loyalty, all wrapped into one. It is an intangible substance which cannot be explained, but is something of which it is great to be a part and to share. This brotherhood is the soul of fraternalism.
