CHAPTERS IN MEXICO? - Bartolo Rodriquez, Jr., Iota, is using some persuasive arguments for the establishment of Pi Kapp chapters in his country. Roddy recently wrote "I have always dreamed of . Pi Kappa Phi coming to Mexico, and I consider it as the basic step toward real sure enough Pan Amert.. can understanding, socially, economically and politically. Real and only life-long friendships and brotherhood are founded while schoolmates. I am a Mason and a Rotarian, but neither can be com.. pared with Pi Kappa Phi - fifty years of experiences convince me! •

'Can you imagine having chapters of Pi Kappa Phi in Canada, Mexico, Cuba and even in South Amert.. ca? It would be a sort of realization of General Bolwar's dream of a real fraternity of all the New World." 4

CONGRESS NEARLY HALF FRATERNITY - Although all living initiates of college fraternities represent only about 1% of the U. S. population, and less than 5% of all citizens who have had some college education, almost 50% of the members of the current 92nd Congress are fraternity men. Pi Kappa Phi has one Senator, Harold Baker, R., Tennessee, and two Representatives, Nick Galifianakis, D., North Carolina and Richard Poff, R., Virginia.

NICK'S CONVERSATION PIECE - Friends of Congressman Nick Galifianakis (according to the Elks Magazine) are having a lot of fun with the Galifianakis watch. Used as a campaign gimmick in his successful bid for re-election, it has the twelve letters of his name replacing the numerals and a caricature of the Congressman standing on a soap box. It's wearers say if it stops they'll save it for theY know "it will run again in two years". SLIDE PRESENTATION AVAILABLE - An 86 slide presentation, complete with script, is now available from the National Office. It can be used by chapters for general information, rush and pledge education. Alumni could use the presentation as an informative program. , PI KAPP COLLEGE - The 8th edition of this important event, will be held on August 22-26, 1971. Again the location will be Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia. For undergraduate chapters, free transQortation, room and board will be provided by the fraternitY for f the An;hon, Treasurer, MRE Chairman (Member-Recruitment and Education), and one other member ~­ the sol)homore ( 1971-72 school year) class. Substitutes for the above can be made but only with the a vance approval of the Executive Director. Additional pledges and members can attend but will have to pay for all expenses- estimated at this til1le to be $60.00 plus transportation. Selected chapter advisors, area governors, and other alumni are being invited to both participate and learn. An outstanding group of instructors will be on hand to present all possible fraternity subjects from Alpha to Omega of the fraternity leadership concept. ALUMNI SUPPORT GROWING - as evidenced by 3,250 alumni having contributed $41,438.42 in the voluntary dues program as of April 1. This compares to 2,462 alumni contributing $28,177 .32 last year on the same date. •

The following statement on dissent was approved by the National Council of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity meeting February 27, 1971. It is the desire of the National Council that all may have a clear understanding as to the official position of Pi Kappa Phi concerning dissent. Pi Kappa Phi is a Fraternal organization established to provide an adjunct to education: Its purpose and aim is to promote fellowship and mutual trust among its members, to uphold the traditions and ideals of the educational institutions where its chapters are located, to encourage excellence in scholarship, and to inculcate in its members the highest ideals of Christian manhood and good citizenship. It endorses and appreciates the fundamental right of dissent, and fully protects and encourages the fair and reasonable exercise of this right by individuals of Pi Kappa Phi. Because the right of dissent is subject to abuse, the National Council publishes this statement to make clear the policy of the Fraternity concerning such abuse.



1) The members of Pi Kappa Phi properly represent a wide variety of viewpoints and attitudes; the Fraternity fosters the free expression and interchange of differing views through oral and written discourse, logical persuasion and legal authority. 2) Dissent, to be acceptable, should be orderly and peaceful, and represent constructive alternatives reasonably presented.


3) Coercion, threats, demands, obscenity, vulgarity, obstructionism and violence are disapproved. . 4) Any acts of dissent which are intended to, or which do disrupt, normal academic and institutional pursuits should not be tolerated. Except as determined under authority of a University President or other legally constituted authority, Pi Kappa Phi will not be a part of any action which will be intended to suspend classes, and routine operations.


5) Pi Kappa Phi, its elected officials, professional staff, alumni and students are urged to abide by these standards of conduct in promoting their views, particularly dissent.



6) Persons who are not so inclined should not join Pi Kappa Phi. 7) Pi Kappa Phi will protect individuals in their right of free individual expression, and assist or provide for prompt and appropriate disciplinary action against those who abuse such right.

By authority


by the 33rd Supreme Chap-

ter, in addition to all members of the National Council, two undergraduate members of Pi Kappa Phi, selected by the Council of Archons, participated in the last National Council m eeting. H er e is their r eport of the meeting. f



On th

~~ation e Weekend of February 27 and 28, 1971, the

~Yatt ~ Cou~cil meeting was held at the Regency

lonal C ouse .In Atlanta, Georgia. Elmer J ost, N a-

raternit ~turday morning. For the first time in the ~\Tere re Y s . history, two undergraduate members 1dent Jcognized and welcomed by the National PresUllde;g a~k Steward. Few other fraternities permit \Ve we;a uate involvment in National policy. And \Vere i e called upon for our views, interests, and Sellted ~Volved directly with solving problems pre0 . Our the Council. ~~~ht :rst reaction and lasting impression of the , ~hat then that sat around the conference table is heirs ~Y are extremely selfish. Let us explain ! 18 ~hltitnat not a personal selfishness, for one of the e unde concerns of each one of these men is how by the crgraduates feel about the policies directed lnen Wi ouncil. We don't know any other group of

fhart we the first major issue. Concern on Ted's

e lneas expressed and a question was posed to 8 hould lllbers of the Council as to the role they . ~come ed's contention that the Council should I ~lty an:fore active in the vital issues of the £raterower grant individual council members more 0

io the f Urpose in expressing his views was to look ~ havi~ture when our fraternity may not be blessed

ard 0 g such a policy and problem solver as DurWen.

Elmer Jost and Charles Tom Henderson, the Past National President, stated that the Council must not overlook its original pttrpose in being that of a Board of Trustees to formulate policy and direct its needs to the administrator, rather than become involved in his work. A decision to take a more active stand in considerations and strive to keep better informed to ease the burden of our Executive Director was reached. Next, in an effort to achieve more contact and better relations with the student chapters, the national officers resolved to visit each chapter at least once a year. They also agreed to make themselves available for special occasions at a chapter's request. In Durward Owen's State of the Fraternity Address, he outlined eight major areas of concern to be studied and acted upon by the Council to establish policy. He pointed out that membership, pledging and consequently income was down from last year by about 12%. A more positive note was struck when he added that Pi Kappa Phi is among only three other national fraternities to have enjoyed a growth in recent years rather than a loss. Spring initiative and enthusiams should bring these statistics back to show an increase for our fraternity. Other areas of concern, which will be covered later in this report were finances, administration of our national leadership school, a publications committee, the need for imaginative programs, the need for a new National Headquarters, involvement at Junior College and Post-Graduate levels, the need for a paid administrator of Pi Kappa Phi Properties Inc., a larger base for Pi Kappa Phi Scholarship Foundation and a "task force" for expansion. In the area of National Projects the Council made a positive effort in fraternity involvment. The Council discussed and endorsed our fraternity's involvement with the Boy Scouts in project SOAR as you probably read in the last issue of the Star and Lamp .

SPRING '71/5 •

Within the next few weeks the Boy Scouts should begin their advertising campaign for this project, so the National Office has been directed to urge all the chapters to prepare their programs to coordinate with project SOAR. It was learned that our National Office has sought the assistance of a Pi Kapp advertising man from Portland, Oregon. We are attempting to initiate an image building campaign and it is hoped that something concrete will be ready for the student chapters at Pi Kapp College this summer. Area Governors have in the past been a problem and this year is no exception. It was decided by the Council that a motivation program be developed. Phil Tappy, National Secretary, volunteered to spearhead the project to promote responsible leadership in the Area Governors. Expansion was the next topic and the scene looks very promising. Durward Owen foresees that expansion in the Southeast will continue to move forward and that chapters will be chartered in New England within the next few years. The NIC has broadened the frontier for national fraternity expansion by allowing fraternities to have chapters in junior colleges. A pilot program for our expansion to junior colleges will be begun as soon as an appropriate experimental site has been established. We will be setting our sights on the resident junior colleges and on those two-year schools that have aspirations of becoming fully accredited colleges within the next few years. One of the most interesting topics of the meeting was the formulation of a plan for a new National Office. It was brought before the Council that the existing building is rundown, too small and was a year ago inadequate for our fraternity's needs. The National Council endorsed a study of the possible area within Charlotte, N. C. for a new site for this building. The cost of a building to suit the needs of a growing fraternity and to exemplify the pride expressed in our fraternity would run around $160,000. The

money. An additional $80,000 is to be borrowe il ed Durward Owen and Ted Scharfenstein voluntee~lil to raise $40,000 in 120 days through a perso ot fund raising effort. Durward and Ted's project ;lid off to a good start. By the end of 24 hours th~Y ne $3,954.70 contributed. That's ten per cent In day. tbe Don Potter, the student representative to tbe Council from Xi Chapter, gave a report o? 009 position of the Council of Archon's on ~he ~naniJll ars vote system.

Most of the respon ote indicate that a two, or a three ball, or 90% "tti.. should be instituted to protect the pledge from peer.. ness and whim of a single individual and to cooP ate with college administrations. ted After these comments were presented it was voter that no chapter is in danger of losing its char no because of the exclusive vote clause, and that ted area of expansion for our fraternity will be affecfor because we maintain a 1007o approval system the initiation vote. hO'" 5 The Council now regarded the question of frli' lastic requirements for initiation.

ith Deep Regret

By a recent action taken by the Trustees of Davidson College, all fraternities occupying houses on the campus must accept the condition that "After a possible initial period of random selection, (by the non affiliated student) affiliation with the groups occupying the houses will be based on the choice of the individual rather than on invitation from the groups." Our Supreme Law required that "Election to membership by an undergraduate chapter shall be held by secret ballot." The Davidson Administration did give fraternities four options : 1. The fraternities might accept the college's plan, keep their charters, and remain in their houses. This is the option desired by Epsilon Chapter upon unanimous vote of the membership. Please note also that this option is in direct conflict with the Supreme Law.s of the Fraternity.

2. The fraternities might accept the college plan, lose their charters, but remain in their houses as locals. This was adopted by four of the 12 fraternities at Davidson, with four others se.. lecting ''1" above - a course leading to option 1 and 2 becoming the same. It is understood that one national fraternity could operate under its national laws within this option. S. The fraternities might refuse the college plan, keep their charters, and leave their houses on Patterson Court (college owned lodges). This approach was recommended to the Chapter by the National Office with offer of direct financial support and with support of local alumni. Four fraternities have chosen this approach. One having selected option "2'' now reported to be considering changing to this approach. 4. The fraternities might elect to cease operations, leaving their houses vacant. This would result in the total dissolvernent of the chapter concerned. The chapter would be operating in



selection of option above. The National can cil cannot change the Supreme Law ;11°rs all it knowingly allow a chapter to oper~teh ~s ill 1 active chapter in good standing wh1c violation of a specific Supreme Law.

The National Council, therefore, had three op· tions: •

1. Allow Epsilon Chapter to operate 1n known lation of the Supreme Law.


2. Suspend the charter.

3. Revoke the charter. 27, the National Council voted to .suspend thehc?a stJS· 19 of Epsilon Chapter effective immediately. T pension is to remain in effect until: d ge 1. The Supreme Law of Pi Kappa Phi is ~ha~f B in such a way as to allow the initiation upoll member based upon his selection of. or t 11Jl his assignment to Pi Kappa Phi w1thoU f pi 0 election to membership by the chapter Kappa Phi.

EpsiJoil 2. Existing undergraduate members of under Chapter decide to change and operate option "3".

de' 3. Other undergraduates of Davidson Co~Ie~!ppll sire to operate under the name of Pt tbe Phi and within option "3" set forth bY college.


no further possibility of operation at a and the charter is revoked. 1 The National Council regrets that Davtdsondu~te




lege has taken this action, and the undergr~se of

members did not want to follow the one cou inti!!' action which would have guaranteed the cont 'fbe tion of Pi Kappa Phi's fifth oldest chapter. eceS' combination of these two decisions has made n sary this action.


To paraphrase an old saying, "The Chapter that works together, stays together." Every campus community provides a multitude of opportunities for Pi Kapp chapters to be of real service to others .. . here are a few examples of Pi Kapps in action .. . doing their personal thing.

"Each year Red Cross chapters across the nation join in a project we call "Ditty" bags for Vietnam servicemen. These are cloth bags filled with small gifts and comfort articles to be distributed at Christmas to all .s ervicemen and women in Vietnam. The bags are made by the women and girls in a community and filled with contributions from local citizens. "This year we found it necessary to pack our own gifts and to prepare cartons for parcel post mailing. We were fortunate enough to find an eager response from the members of the Gamma Xi Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. Several of the young men came to our office and put their energy and know-how to work doing a first-rate job of packing the cartons for shipping. "They did the job .so very willingly and were most cooperative. I felt they should be commended to the national organization and recognized for their spirit as well as the work they did. They are all an asset to their college and to the community." BETA KAPPA "FEEDS THE CHILDREN" One hundred twenty-one needy families in the Atlanta area received large boxes of food last Thanksgiving as a result of our Georgia State Chapter's lOth annual "Feed the Children" drive. Conducted with the cooperation of the Northwest Kiwanis Club and many other GSU organizations, Pi Kappa Phi not only helped make Thanksgiving a real day of thanks for over 100 families, but earned itself well deserved recognition on the campus and in the community.

ALPHA MU "POVERTY DRIVE" SUCCESSFUL The observant eye of just one brother, Stephen Fox, activated Alpha Mu's successful "Poverty Drive" in State College, Pa. last fall. Waiting to meet a bus, Brother Fox noticed a small pocket of very poor housing in back of the bus station. On further investigation, he learned that the State College area had several such pockets of poverty, with very little being done about it. ~·

Within a week, the Chapter voted to lend its support to these underprivileged families. It decided to center its drive around the Thanksgiving period. The first step taken was to contact local churches to find out what they were doing and how the Chapter could help. They were directed towards a tremendous individual, Mrs. Phyllis Crabtree, a member of the United Methodist Church who runs a day nursery for 36 underprivileged families. Mrs. Crabtree helped map out plans for an area canned goods drive and a campus-wide collection. Realizing it would need the aid of others in its collection, Alpha Mu called upon the assistance of Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma and Kappa Delta sororities. The next step was to solicit publicity. The school newspaper, two town newspapers ran articles on the planned charity collection. Local radio stations were contacted and ran public service announcements. Block collections for three nights prior to the week of Thanksgiving vacation were organized. Collecting with each sorority for three days, the collection netted almost a ton of canned goods for the 36 families selected. A campus collection took place over a span of two days. Advertising with large signs and various posters attracted people coming and going from classes and stores, and brought in $800.00. This money was used to buy each family a large turkey for their Thanksgiving Day tables. These turkey's coupled with a thirty pound box of canned goods made a Thanksgiving worth remembering. With a considerable amount of money left Alpha Mu bought all the families turkeys for Christmas. After this there was still $400 remaining. These people have self respect and continuous charity would only defeat what little they had left. So the Chapter decided to give them something they really needed, money. Not money in the form of a gift, but loans. Through the Christian Missions Program an interest free loan fund for area families to draw from in times of emergency was established. These people have welfare income and small salaries to subsist on, but unfortunately most of the money is gone before the bills come in for electricity, heat and water. They could never gain any sort of credit from a commercial bank for these necessities, so the Chapter provided it.

rom the Desk of the


thf Would like to take this space to write some amngs that I have wished to say for sometime. I 8 find ?re that the words would be quite difficult to If I attempted a speech. 1\rainly, I just want to say, THANK YOU. 1 1 ;hank you for the best years of my life. When 1 96~rne to Jacksonville University in January of llla ' ~ really did not care what kind of grades I thi de, Just so I got my degree and got out. The best fri ng that ever happened to me was that an old erd of mine got me to join his fraternity. I was 110 frat on&:er a lonely 25 year old college man, but a f Pri ern1ty man. With this came a great deal of an:e and responsibility both toward my fraternity and lllyself. Now, I wanted to make good grades, is th I have. So you see, indirectly, this fraternity co e reason that my last year and a half have been itnlnPleted on scholarship. This is one of the most

greater unity of pride and spirit than has existed in the group since I have been here. I have worked and looked for this day for over three years. Yes, I am proud! Proud most of all for just being associated with you as a group and as individuals. Believe me, I leave owing a great debt to this fraternity. What does one get out of fraternity? ONE HELL OF A LOT! I have gotten far more than I could ever repay, and for this I am grateful. In .short, thank you brothers for making me a better man. I will truly miss each and everyone of you, and God knows I could never forget you. Yours in Pi Kappa Phi Bill Boland, Archon It's most peculiar. Ask any Pi Kapp why a young man should join Pi Kappa Phi and usually you'll get an answer that winds up with some vague platitudes about "great bunch of guys;" "nice house," "good place to live;" "lots of parties;" "good friends" and even "you learn to live with responsibility."

I llevUal, a sense of being, of belonging. We should rea er lose sight of that. This fraternity is also the ne~on that, until my work interfered, I was on the on spaper staff and involved in several other groups ~eaca~pus, eventually leading to a nomination two ersh~ In a row for the Peter Carlton Anderson lead1 bah P award, something that would have never t-~Pened had it not been for the fraternity.

Then ask, "What has -Pi Kappa Phi really meant to you?" If you get a frank answer, you'll find it usually is a lengthy response detailing very specific things of a personal nature regarding the interrelationships between brothers and their effects on your respondent. Bill Boland has written very ably that which most of us .seldom express what Pi Kappa Phi means to him. It is evident it means a great deal to him, just as it does to many of us.



tne. A person in my age group is at a disadtno age on a campus as a full time student. I am l'east grateful that instead of a long lonely three Wo~d of plodding around, that I have had three very g-00d erful years of close friendship. It is truly a or feeling to know that no matter what the nature so~cope of any problem one may have, that he has too eone who will listen and help if they can. In heist cases, just to be able to talk about a problem reaPs one to see the issue more clearly and find a sonable solution.

And it becomes evident that this meaning can be summarized, as it has been by Brother Don Lawton of Alpha Zeta, that "Pi Kappa Phi is a personal thing."

"If fraternities adhere to their declared objectives, they can do much to restore the higher learning in this land. "In America, fraternity houses provide something of the congenial atmosphere of Oxford and Cambridge something that the gigantic new dormitories never can provide. The loss of personal relationships is one of the great plagues of our age. So any sociologist with imagination, I maintain, ought to approve the survival of these voluntary associations." Statistics bear out what Mr. Kirk has written. Sixty-five percent of the members of college fraternity chapters graduated on schedule last year,










according to a just completed three-year study of fraternity retention by the Commission on Fraternity Research under the direction of Dr. Paul P. VanRiper, Professor of Public Administration at Cornell University and Chairman of the Com• • miSSIOn. This is a significantly higher rate of graduation than most colleges have for the general student body (35% for non-fraternity schools, 47% for schools with fraternities.) In addition, over the three year period, the retention indices increased from a starting level of about 55% to 65% in 1969. Fraternities have perhaps the greatest challenge they have had in nearly 200 years of existence. If we do not meet the challenge, the death knell can be tolled, both for Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity and the entire fraternity system. We can no longer exist if we continue to practice having or other things which degrade young men. We cannot continue to treat pledges as "worms." We must assist him as we strive to improve our society and the environment in which we live. We cannot live in the past. At the same time, we cannot forget the past. From the past, we learn, and thus grow and improve. From the past we learn the basic tenets of brotherhood from today's mores we can teach it. Fraternity is needed today as it has never been needed before. And Pi Kappa Phi needs its alumni to assist in meeting this challenge. I ask your willing and active involvement in bettering the most valuable asset this world has ... our youth. Jack Steward National President

ter 19 YEARS, AND GROWING With the thrilling music of the familiar "Miss America Fanfare" filling Whitehead Auditoriu~, a capacity crowd saw the nineteenth annual Miss Valdosta State College Pageant, February 10, sponsored by Beta Tau Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. Seve~teen beal.:!tiful VSC coeds were In competition for the coveted title, which carries with it an opportunity to become Miss Georgia and Miss America. The reigning queen, sophomore Ann Brightwell, Miss Valdosta State College 1970, was joined by Nancy Carr Miss Georgia 1971, and several 'other special guests and the 17 contestants in a program that has been proclaimed a.s the most colorful in the College's pageant history.

been annually sponsored by the Beta Tau Chapter for 19 years. This year'.s Pageant closely followed the Miss America style presentation in every respect, including the theme, the presence of Miss Georgia to serve as mistress of ceremonies, presentation to winners of official Miss America trophies, and a pageant program magazine of more than 30 pages. To accomplish all that had to be done to make this a truly memorable pageant, it was necessary that all Beta Tau brothers and pledges .share the many responsibilities and even call on others at the College. Sixteen pages of advertising for the pageant program were sold by the Fraternity members. Local merchants supported the cause with numerous valuable gifts, flowers, etc. Beta Tau committee chairmen for the event were Kirk Rivenbark, Advertising and Promotion; Bob Hereford and Vince Settle, Magazine ; Keith Wortman, Awards; and Carmen Spatola, Judges. Fluker G. Stewart, Chi alumni and now Director of College Relations at VSC, was production coordinator of the Pageant. ''The Chapter has been presenting the annual Miss VSC Pageant for 19 years, and for three years now has been a franchise holder and participant in the Miss Georgia Pageant competition," Latham Hill pointed out. "However, for the first time, this year we decided to go all out and real1y make the College Pageant an outstanding evening everyone would remember. I think they definitely will!"

PRODUCING A PAGEANT? The main point in producing a pageant is to make sure you create enthusiams. Get your campus excited, and it could ma~ter very little if your show r~tns Into technical difficulty. This y~ar marked the 24th Annual l\iiss Georgia Southern College Pageant. This is the third year Gamma Kappa Chapter has wo;ked with the pageant here at GS<;~ and it will not be our last. It IS the fastest way to raise your f.raternity image; sure sports are Important, but from year to year when you make it known th~~ t~e "Miss Whatever Pageant IS sponsored by Pi Kapps, that's called tradition, and that leaves an impression. Back about ten years ago, the Miss Georgia Southern ~ageant was simply a beauty review; or to put it bluntly, a "leg and body show." Then we purchased .a fr~n.­ chise from the Miss Georgia-M1ss America Pageant and became ".an official preliminart; of th_e Miss America Pageant. Our girl goes directly to compete in the Miss Georgia Pageant; and last year, she was in the top ten a;nd won over $500.00 in scholarships. If you are explorin~ ~he idea of sponsoring a pageant, It .s no problem The format would follow: eve~ing gown comp~tition, t~lent, and finally swimsuit; as sir_nple as that. However, the secret Is to make your show move fast.. A show like this can be done with 15 to 20 girls in two hours and forty-five minu~es! including a ten minute intermission af~er talent competition. After eve~I~g gown and swimsuit competition, ask some talented person on campus to entertain as a divertissement to give the girls time to change from one competition to another. The college pageant is the ideal situation. You can always persuade the music department to provide music (free, of course) ; plant operatio~s ~o help build your set; organizations to sponsor girls at maybe a $10.~0 en.try fee. If you get twenty girls In your show, you have $200.00, and that could probably be enough f~r a small, but yet well-organized show. And if you are re~llf lucky, talk your college into .g~v~ng yo~ money out of the acti~Ities fee ' then all you need do IS budget

your money and direct the show. As for our pageant here at Southern the college donates $1,640 f~r the production. Our business manager then s e II s $1,000 worth of ads; and then we charge $25.00 entry fee. per co~­ testant. The funny part Is organizations will pay this fee because our "propaganda people" build the show up to a super production. So, with a working budget of $2,500 we start the show. The theme of the 1971 Miss GSC Pageant was "Somewhere Out There " and our special guests were Miss'Virginia, Cherie Davis; Miss Indiana, Jill Jackson; and Miss Georgia, Nancy Carr. We had an orchestra of twenty, a chorus of twenty, and ten dancers. The show was pop and up to date -the music pleased every taste. VVe had a set change for every production number. In other words, it was a big show for a college. In summary, we cleared over $1,100 on our show. The success of our show was due to enthusiasm of the college and the Brothers of Gamma Kappa Chapter. In other words, we may now be known as the "Pageant Directors," and I know of no other position that holds as much prestige. Good luck on your pageant; and get involved; it makes the difference. -Wayne Buffington, Gamma Kappa Director, Miss GSC Pageant

In the 1900's National Fraterr·nities recognized a need for some form of mutual contact between their various organizations at the national leadership level. This contact was desirable in order to establish closer communication and cooperation. Thus in 1909, the National Interfraternity Conference came into existence. The organization itself has never changed from its orginal basic concept cooperation and communication bet'lv een the natio'nal leadership level of the m entber national f'raterr.,tities. Criticism of the National Interfraternity Conference has resulted from a misunderstanding of the basic concept, and not from the concept itself. It is correct that the National Interfraternity Conference has aided the critics by attempts to do more than its basic concept would allow, i.e., relating I.F.C.'s to the N.I.C. as individual undergraduate chapters are related to their individual national fraternities. This is in direct conflict with the basic National Interfraternity Conference concept. Moves are now in effect to adjust the basic concept and the structure to accompany such changed concept. Due to its present structure such changes must come from the national leadership of the member national fraternities. In the meantime we should accept the "n~·utual cooperation and communication bet1veen tl~e national leadet~ship level of the various /national !rate1·nities" concept of the N.I.C. and disregard any expectation of a "super national legislative and leadership school" role for the National Interfraternity Conference. Especially should this attitude of expectation be adjusted as regards the annual meeting itself. Due to the present basic National Interfraternity Conference concept, those in attendance, other than the official delegates of the fifty-nine member national fraternities, should anticipate "peer group contact" as the only structured value of annual meeting attendance.

GEORGIA AND FLORIDA HOLD LARGEST CONCLAVE EVER Under the warm Florida sun Pi Kapps from throughout the Southeast began gathering as early as Thursday afternoon for the joint Florida-Georgia Conclave held March 6-7 at the Safari Beach Motel in Daytona Beach, Florida. First to arrive were the guest chapters from South Carolina, well represented by groups from Charleston, University of South Carolina, Lander, Wofford, and Presbyterian. This entourage was led by Area Governor Glenn McConnell, who at least the opening hour and a half of the Conclave, had a wardrobe of dry clothes. Spirits were never dampened, but Brother McConnell was dampened with great regularity as he became official candidate for the Esther Williams A ward by being tossed in the motel pool no less than 16 times! The festivities officially started Friday night with a poolside Hget acquainted" party hosted by National Secretary Phil Tappy. Dates from nearby colleges were on hand to welcome the visiting Pi Kapps, however some were apparently driven away by over zealous Brothers who were clawing at the windows of their automobiles as they drove in to the motel. On Saturday morning the more than 300 Pi Kapps in attendance gathered at the Scene Nightclub for the business and awards session of the Conclave. Brother Tappy and Area V Governor, Larry McDaniel led the discussions which touched on the topics of Fund raising, Junior College expansion, Pi Kapp College, voting regulations, Davidson Charter Suspension, change of scholastic and time requirements for initiation, etc. Following review of topics of interest, the trophies and award presentations we1·e made. Since Area Governor Ed Muloch was unable to attend, the Florida Chapter awards were postponed. The Area V awards given were as follows:

Expecting in the future are chapter advisor and alumnus Carey Sharpe and his wife, Meldra and Max and Diane Goodloe. The house has a new look this semester with the whole inside just having been painted. The highlight of the work is the house bedroom.

Iota initiates and nursing students serenade patient at Georgia Baptist Hospital.

Iota closed out fall on a successful note by finishing third out of 28 fraternities on campus in scholarship. By collecting more money than any other group in our district in the Atlanta Jaycee sponsored Empty Stocking Fund, Iota's Pi Kapps proved that they still care about others. This marked the second year in a row that we have been on top in collections as our per capita collections rose from $20 to $25. The majority of winter was devoted to planning for spring. Brother Will Jordan, having completed his graduate studies has rejoined Iota in the role of Co-Advisor. Will, working with newly elected Historian Jim Blakely has set into motion a new program of Alumni Relations. Also under study is a revision of Iota's pledge policies. We are now working toward a positive fraternity-community service program instead of the negative approach now common to many chapters, including ours. Brother Russ Anderson, in keeping with this new objective, sponsored a community service project in which our pledges sang and entertained patients at Georgia Baptist Hospital. Plans are also in the works for the social aspects of spring. Our Rose Ball will be held May 8 and we would like as many of our alumni to come as possible. Also our "Budman Special" go-cart is being made ready to improve on last year's third place finish in the Tech 200. Winter has not been without its achievements however. The most notable of these was our bowling team's capture of the league title for the third consecutive year. Winter at Iota was closed by 26 men attending the Area V conclave held in Daytona Beach, Florida. It was quite an experience and Area Governor Phil Tappy is to be congratulated.

Lambda Chapter en1barked upon the new school year by pledging ten sophomores. These pledges led the brotherhood in the leukemia drive, in which Lambda Chapter placed third. Our chapter has also gotten off to a great start in intrafraternity athletics. The football team slashed through all its opponents to a 5-0 year, only to be nipped in the final seconds by the Pi Kappa Alpha's in the play-offs, 6 to 0. Our volleyball, baseball, and horseshoe teams all placed second in their respective sports. Plans arc being set to initiate a "Little Sisters" program at Lambda. We know that this program will be very beneficial as has been evidenced by other chapters. The first annual Parents' Day of Lambda chapter is being set for the first week of April. This will be our first opportunity to get together the parents and sons that make up our chapter.

Last year for the first time since 1957 .Alpha Zeta. was a Master Chapter placing number four~een In .rank. Thts year Alpha Zeta is striving hard to attain ranking as a Grand Master Chapter. . A Good Will Drive organized by Brother Mike Parson with the sisters of Alpha Gamma Delta collecte.d usable goods from 60 fraternities, sororities and cooperatives. The amount collected was so large that the Portland collection van was used to pick up the merchandise. Alpha Zeta is a changing chapter with regard to its pledges. Why should a man a h.ouse when he kn~ws that to attain eventual membership possibly a year of hazing must first be overcome? As time goes on, not without problems, Alpha Zeta is becoming a unified house working in a group rather than as separate classes. Several brothers in the house are strong advocates of MRE (Membership Recruitment Education) which reduces the length of pledgeship to a matter of weeks. Whether or not the house will move closer to MRE hangs in the balance of the upcoming spring elections.

Randy Richardson "directed" his attention to the annual campus-wide Step-Sing. While presenting a theme of pollution and poverty and showing a real concern for the brotherhood of mankind, Alpha Eta waltzed away with the first place trophy in the fraternity division for the second straight year. Brother Tommy Alford is the newly elected representative to the I.F .C. and will strive to strengthen and improve the Greek's position here on our campus. Alpha Eta has eight new brothers this semester. Our new initiates are Max McBrayer, Garve Ivey, Barry Cochran, Gary Shank, David Dennis, David Bean, Bruce Davis, and Mike Self. To these eight men we are glad to extend the hand of brotherhood.

SPRING '71/ 23



March 14, 1971 a date to be remembered by many brothers of Alpha Eta, for it was on this past Sunday that Alpha Eta's long heard of and sought after impossible dream started to become a reality ground was finally broken for Alpha Eta's fraternity house. Much deserved thanks goes to Brother Jerry Gall ups who is presently enrolled at the Cumberland · School of Law. Brother Gallups has spent many, many long and untiring hours in securing a loan and other matters that needed to be attended to before construction could begin. Along with Brother Gallups, Jim Butler, president of the relatively new Young Alumni Association and Randy George, who is setting up an Alumni Relations Committee, have coordinated efforts between the alumni and the undergraduate chapter. Indeed all of us here at Alpha Eta are deeply indebted and greatly appreciative of all of those who had or are having any hand in building our house.

ALPHA IOTA AUBURN Archon David A. Simpson Chapter Advisor Col. K. G. Taylor On December 6, 1970, Alpha Iota Chapter was indeed fortunate in having Brothet" Elmer Jost visit with us. In honor of Founder's Day, Brother J ost and his wife spent the afternoon with us to help celebrate the occasion. Brother J ost made a short but very relevant, speech to us at the banquet we held for all our local alumni. Winter quarter has been very successful for our Chapter here. Alpha Iota held two parties for underprivileged children, one party for some mentally retarded children at a local school and a Valentine's Party for a group of children in the Heads tart Program. We also received a plaque for the most improved scholarship among fraternities. By next quarter, we hope to have made our final plans for our program to help preserve our ecology. In sports, our intramural basketball team finished sixth overall, the bowling team finished fourth, and our ten mighty "horses'' pulled our chariot (borrowed from Gamma Alpha, Livingston University, Ala.) to victory in the First Annual I.F.C. Chariot Race held in conjunction with the Annual Greek Forum.

ALPHA MU PENN STATE Archon Michael Trull Chapter Advisor Paul Wuest The past two terms at Alpha Mu have seen a unique program develop into a gratifying success story. This is our "Big Sister" program which differs quite markedly from the "Little Sisters" which are common to many fraternities. It is standard procedure for each new pledge to have a Big Brother. However, at Alpha Mu he also has a Big Sister. But what is a Big Sister; what is her purpose during the pledge period? In many respects, for the pledges, a Big Sister is very similar to a Big Brother. Each Big Sister is a member of a sorority at Penn State. A pledge may confide in his Big Sister and talk over the problems, challenges, and conflicts he faces during his pledge period. Hopefully, each pledge will not only better understand the fraternity world upon completion of his program, but he will also gain insight concerning the sorority as an integral component of the Greek system. Every Big Sister has proven to be a valuable person to her "Little Brother." Fortunately for everyone at Alpha Mu, each group of Big Sisters improves upon this basic program. The girls have contributed to the pledges and the entire house in a variety of ways. They have helped with theme party decorations and rush, given surprise Sunday breakfasts, been spirited supporters for Pi Kapps at various extracurricular events and have taken part in the projects and pranks of their Little Brothers.


Even after pledging has been completed, the Big Sisters remain close to Pi Kappa Phi and their Little Brother~. The overall result has been many meaningful rela tionsh1ps~ a better understanding of sororities, and some outstandtng female additions to Alpha Mu.

Construction has now been completed to provide us with living space which more than doubled the size of our original facilities. This addition makes the Pi Kapp House the largest and best on campus. We are very proud of our new house and extend an invitation to visit us at any time. This semester Beta Beta Chapter achieved the scholarship award for highest grade point average which was above a 3.0 on a 4.0 system. Beta Beta was also awarded the most improved scholastic average trophy for all fraternities on campus. In December, Beta Beta Chapter held its first in a series of fund raising projects for environment~.} control and specifically anti-pollution. Several W. C. F1eld films were shown with donations taken at the door. The films were a great success and $40.00 was donated. The money went for post cards addressed to President Nixon in praise of his stand on the Florida Cross Barge Canal. In April Beta Beta again plans another f~nd rasing p~o­ ject for Earth Week. Guest speakers, moVJes, and special singers will provide the program which we hope will become an annual event. Donations will be given to Florida Defenders of the Environment.

The Brothers of Beta Kappa received the Master Chapter Award at the 33rd Supreme Chapter, this being the second time the first being in 1957. This encouraged Beta Kappa to push on in the areas of rush, sports and scholastic activity in the school. After a successful rush, Beta Kappa currently has five pledges with their initiation date set for April 18th. On January 27th we initiated seven new brothers. The Beta Kappa Jocks went all out last year and ended up as the runner-up for the All-sports trophy. Beta Kappa won the school softball championship, defeating Pi Kappa Alpha soundly. Football found the chapter ramping over all opposition. Brothers Glen Cowart, Terry Phillips, Otto Aliffi Larry Stanford and Millard Lowry were named to the ftrst team All-stars at Georgia State University. Basketball found the Pi Kapps in good shape, led by three first team all-stars, Bruce Lattimer, Otto Aliffi and Fred Terry, who assisted the team to finish third. Brother Otto Aliffi was one of the only two Greeks on campus to make both All-star teams. Brother Aliffi was also appointed I.F.C. and School Athletic Director. This year's softball team has been challenged by the "old over-the-hill gang" (the Alumni) to a softball game. A picnic will accompany this slaughter of the aged. We advise the alumni to bring wives and girl friends to heal their wounds. .,

We had 150 entries, and the money we received was donated to Renewal House, a drug rehabilitation center. $259.00 was donated, and we plan to continue this as an annual event. Some honors and awards that Beta Kappa have received include: LaJ·1·y llfcDanicl, our Chapter Advisor, is the new Area V Governor.

Our work and concentration produced the largest pledge class of all fraternal organizations on campus. As echoes of change are heard on campuses throughout the country, the Greek Organizations, we feel, should not look to the past, but dwell in the future. \Ve have thus created for ourselves a fraternity of individuals combined in brotherhood. Through the understanding of our Executive Director, Dur\vard 0\ven, our housing problems have been remedied. \Ve are no\v out ·of the conservative reach of the school as far as our living conditions. This gives the brotherhood greater pride in pl~esenting our home to our guests. Through much constructive \vork and determination, we have redecorated our house \vith wall-to-\vall carpeting, panelling, new furniture and finally the construction of a new bar and game room. . . . We have had successful Inter-chapter and Inter-organizational social events throughout the semester. As for our main event of the season, our Rose Ball will be held at Daytona Beach where \VC are expecting a great turn-out. Our con1~unity fund-raising activities consisting of "Send a 1\iouse to College" for the American 9ancer Society, and an inter-fraternity effort, March of Dimes, headed up by Inter-fraternity President and Secretary, Brothers Ted Papps and Brad Stoner. We have also had such private fund raising efforts as program sales on Gasparilla Day (similar to Mardi Gras) which produced $300.00 for our Chapter. As an exatnple of Beta Lambda's stre~gth on the. University of Tampa campus, we have ach!ev~d the highest academic average among fraternal organizations. We have also maintained a high rank in the intram.ural P!ogram.

After ending the fall semester with final exams, 9 men were received into the brotherhood. With the beginning of the new semester, Beta Chi proceeded with rush activities and gained 3 pledges. We feel that these 3 men are well qualified and will prove to be outstanding in their pledgeship. Beta Chi's basketball team turned in an exciting season by winning the Greek championship. Going into the championship game with an 8-1 record, Pi Kapps overwhelmed Sigma Phi Epsilon 68-56. We are now looking forward to track and softball. The most impressive party so far this semester was the Lay-in-the-Hay party. Brother Steve Davis offered the use of his barn for this occasion. Everyone wore Hillbilly Hick or Sadie Hawkins and danced to the music of a fine band. A majority of the brothers and alumni attended. The annual Rose Ball will be held April 3rd at the Royal Coach Inn. Also, the spring outing is planned for April 31May 2nd. Beta Chi is having a fine year scholastically, ending last semester number one in overall G.P .A. among fraternities. On February 10, 1971, Beta Chi Chapter was greatly rewarded with the chartering of an Alumni Chapter in Dallas. Twenty-five Dallas area alumni are charter members and are ready to help Beta Chi. Elected officers include Brother Ronnie Parks, President; Brother Olan Pyles, Treasurer; and Brother Ronnie Carrell, Secretary. The Alumni Chapter meets once a month and has already formed a housing fund and scholarship fund for Beta Chi. We are very proud and grateful to our Alumni Chapter and are looking forward to working with them. Interested alumni in the Dallas area please contact Ronnie Carrell, P. 0. Box 894, Cedar Hill, Texas. Boyce "Gator" Clardy has returned to Beta Chi Chapter to begin work on his Master's Degree at East Texas State. "Gator" has spent the past 2 years teaching and coaching in Florida. Bill Patterson has joined the East Texas State biology staff as a technical assistant. Bill is currently working on his Master's Degree in the field of biology.

BETA PSI TENNESSEE WESLEY AN Archon Samuel J. Kyker Chapter Advisor Frank Bratton ' Beta Psi Chapter has again arrived on top with our scholarship achievement. Our excellence in scholarship has become the pride of our Chapter every term; and the fall semester of 1970 was no exception for Beta Psi. The overall Grade-Point-Average for brothers and pledges was 2.57 placing us above the All-Greek average of 2.53 and the All-Men average of 2.42. Breaking the overall down further, the brotherhood's overall was 2.87 and the pledge class average was a 2.26. Scholnrship is to us both a sense of pride and an incentive; and it is these attitudes that have kept Beta Psi on top scholastically here at Tennessee Wesleyan. The social life, which is headed by our Social Chairman, Tom Drumheller, here at Beta Psi is filled with numerous parties, and other social events. We keyed everything off this semester with a Valentine Party. We will have our Rose Formal in May of 1971.

To add more competition to the race three classes have been contrived. The scrub, mechanical, and the unlimited classes will bring more unique rafts into the race. The festivities this year will start with a parade through the town and a fireworks display. Then the scene switches to Glen Ferris Falls for the Beach Party. The start of the race will be held at 10:00 A.M. on April 24. With a heat for each class, the excitement and enthusiasm is certainly maintained throughout the course to the finish line. Last year was the beginning of the great Kanawha River Navy. Persons who have made outstanding contributions to the betterment of the Oil Drum Regatta are awarded the position of Admiral. Holding this honor are Governor Arch Moore, Dr. Leonard C. Nelson (President of W. Va. Tech), Robert Durbin and Charles Jones. Many of our brothers have distinguished themselves on campus. Brother Culotta was selected to Who's Who; Brother Johnson is the treasurer of the Student Government Association; Brother Talerico is the treasurer of I.F .C. and Brother McKnight was vice-president of the American Road Builders.

Alpha Gamma is making progress! After a slow fall semester, new officers were elected, and the Colony began to achieve its chartering objectives. The new treasurer reviewed the books and established a more efficient system. The required fund ed accounts were formed, and the books were balanced. A scholarship program was formed to achieve the desired grades for chartering. As a further step, a pledge education program was started for all of the members of the Colony. The Colony's n1ost important concern at the present time is gaining more members. With a present membership of 17, the Colony hopes to pledge at least 10 more this semester. There are now several prospective pledges, and rush efforts are continuing. The Colony members have adopted an alumni visitation program in order to become better acquainted with the alumni of the original Alpha Gamma Chapter. In visiting with these men, the members have gained the spirit and knowledge of Pi Kappa Phi which means so much to these men. Tne members of the Colony hope to bring as many of the alumni as possible together for chartering. The Colony was fortunate to obtain a house this year. The house has given the brothers a place to meet and become closer as a fraternity. The members are looking forward to moving to a different house next year which will be closer to the main campus.

TAU KAPPA BETA COLONY MOREHEAD Archon Stanley Lyon Chapter Advisor William Grogan Last summer, Chuck Barnard of Cedar, Iowa was invited as a guest of Pi Kappa Phi to attend the 33rd Supreme Chapter in Chicago, Illinois. Chuck is a junior transfer student. Last September, Chuck was approached by Expansion Secretary Joe McLean with the idea of starting a colony of Pi Kappa Phi on the Northeast Missouri State campus. Chuck agreed it would be a very rewarding and challenging experience. So Pi Kappa Phi had a key man they could count on to get things started, and offer the challenge to other individuals. With the help of Expansion Secretary Joe McLean, thirteen men petitioned to IFC to become one of the seven fraternities on campus. The petition was accepted by IFC. The next step was to sign a petition to the national office. So, by November 13, 1970, Kappa Phi Colony of Northeast Missouri State was established and recognized as a colony of Pi Kappa Phi. However, at this time these 13 membe!s wh~ch quickly grew to 16 were not aware of the many difficulties and problems they would encounter.
