OF PI KAPPA PHI FALL 1985
Supreme Chapter 85 All roads and runways led to Charlotte, North Carolina for the 40th Supreme Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi, August 10-14, 1985. Alumni and delegates from Oregon to Florida and New Jersey to California gathered for the culmination of two years of planning for the biennial convention of the Fraternity. In all, over 485 attendees shared in the excitement and hospitality in the home of the Pi Kappa Phi Administrative Office, Charlotte, North Carolina. The Charlotte area alumni committee, with the help of Eastern Airlines, provided an exciting line-up of activities for all who attended. Beginning with the sounds of "beach music," which claims its popularity along the coast of the Carolinas, Pi Kapps were provided with entertainment at the getacquainted beach party.

Pi Kappa Phi continues tradition of aggressive expansion The year was 1968. Campus unrest was beginning to drastically change the attitudes that undergraduates had toward traditional institutions. Many would predict the demise of fraternity systems in the years to follow. Despite the gloomy picture painted by forecasters, Pi Kappa Phi predicted an average annual growth of four chapters per year for the decade following 1968. After all, they had nine colonies as well as a clear plan for three more in the year to follow. The unrest continued to escalate, eventually taking its toll on the fraternity world, Pi Kappa Phi included. Pi Kappa Phi did not suffer as badly as many fraternities, and nowhere was it more apparent that fraternities would survive the decade of turmoil, and in Pi Kappa Phi's case actually grow. Pi Kappa Phi did grow in the years to follow, more so than any other fraternity. The 57 chapters grew in the 18 years to follow to today's 103 chapters. A 79% increase, 25% more than any other in the fraternity world. Clear planning and strong direction created the atmosphere for this outstanding growth, a tradition that continues today as Pi Kappa Phi fosters its growth concept into the late eighties with six colonies at present and an extensive three-year plan for the future. The three-year expansion plan, according to Pete Duguid, Director of Membership for Pi Kappa Phi, should lay down a structural framework upon which Pi Kappa Phi can remain the most aggressively growing fraternity in the country. The three-part plan focuses on services to present associate chapters, immediate expansion efforts and a set of targets for the long range goals of the Fraternity. The first part of the plan, services to existing associate chapters, focuses on the development of the present associate chapters to the point where they are strong, self-perpetuating groups. The plan calls for increased visitation by Leadership Consultants and strong alumni involvement for the associate chapters. A determined effort on the part of both groups would, according to the plan, insure the success of the associate chapters. "Continued support for these groups is of utmost importance," claims Brother Duguid. "If these groups are allowed to weaken as a result of the Fraternity's negligence it would be like taking one step forward to take two steps backward." This becomes apparent when the time and effort that the Fraternity invests into a colony is taken into consideration and weighed against losing an associate chapter. Pi Kappa Phi include associate chapters at Clemson, Saint Leo, Texas Tech,
University of Texas-Austin, University of North Dakota, and Cal-San Diego, with Clemson, St. Leo, and Texas Tech very near their chartering dates.
pulled together to form a housing corporation and act as a support system for the associate chapter, giving it further stability toward chartering.
Beginning the fall, Pi Kappa Phi had associate chapters at Clemson, Saint Leo and Texas Tech. As part of the expansion framework, immediate cites for expansion were labeled for the coming year. The expansions begun this fall include:
UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS-AUSTIN— Upon learning about Pi Kappa Phi through a friend at Delta Phi Chapter, at Radford University in Virginia, a Texas undergraduate named Charles Solomon formed a group and petitioned to become an associate chapter at UT-Austin. Thirty five men came together and are under the guidance of the new Area Governor, Ed Jesko, who is located in Austin. In addition to the associate chapters mentioned, Pi Kappa Phi is in the process of investigating a number of interest groups at other institutions which include the University of Michigan, George Mason University, Cal-Davis, and Cal-Chico. The 39th Supreme Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi recommended extensive western expansion. Having only three chapters in Texas, coupled with the number of universities there, makes Texas a top priority for expansion. The Texas area will also incude Louisiana and Oklahoma. California also has many Greek affiliated universities with Pi Kapp chapters at only two campuses at present. Beginning with San Diego, Pi Kappa Phi
UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA— Pi Kappa Phi presently has no chapters in North Dakota and the University of North Dakota had plenty of room for expansion. The university has not seen a fraternity expansion in 16 years, which created a favorable atmosphere for Pi Kappa Phi. A group of 55 men came together under the guidance of Michael O'Donnell, expansion coordinator at UND for Pi Kappa Phi. UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA-SAN DIEGO—The three-year plan calls for an effort to be made in further expanding the west, an untapped resource by many fraternities, including Pi Kappa Phi. The University of California-San Diego has a small but growing Greek system, which is a very visible part of the San Diego campus. After recruiting 35 men for a colony, a group of San Diego area alumni were
hopes to gain access to many California campuses in the future. Florida, though not a western state, is a top priority for future expansion. There are a high number of quality locations to choose from in Florida in addition to the favorable atmosphere created by the high concentration of Pi Kappa Phi alumni in the area. There are many criteria used in evaluating expansion cites and one is the reopening of dormant chapters. If a favorable atmosphere exists for an expansion at any of these sites the Fraternity will react quickly. Where does the Fraternity want to be in three years? The three-year plan calls for the performing of fifteen expansions and the chartering of ten new chapters by the Fall of 1988. With growth will come changes in the organization and the need for a larger staff to provide services effectively to all chapters of Pi Kappa Phi. "The nurturing of the Fraternity's present chapters cannot be ignored if the growth is to be effective or even worthwhile," admits Brother Duguid. The three-year expansion plan should provide the Fraternity with the direction and guidance to carry the tradition of growth well into the eighties and into the nineties.

Dry Rush: What's it all about? The thought of holding a successful rush event without alcohol is unimaginable to some chapers; to other chapters, a dry rush event seems to be the best way to rush. These two opposite attitudes exist because some chapters are on campuses where alcohol and rush do not mix (so to speak) and have never mixed, while other chapters have served alcohol during rush for many years and rely on it as an important drawing card to interest rushees. Whatever the current situation on any given campus, it is clear that dry rush is a growing trend and has been spreading to more campuses each year. Like most other national fraternities, Pi Kappa Phi wholeheartedly endorses the concept of dry rtish and fully backs any institution's decision to implement a dry rush program. This endorsement is based on the belief that the advantages of dry rush far outweigh any difficulties associated with it. If you look at the variety of social interaction in a chapter, there is not a
drink in hand at all times. One of the biggest concerns of Greeks is that the general public views the fraternity as only a social club revolving around high alcohol consumption. Serving alcohol during rush only reinforces the general public's perception that partying is the basic function of fraternities. With rush being the time for selling the system, the fact that alcohol is served tends to reinforce the general public's attitude, as well as the rushee's perception of the chapter. In a dry rush environment the decision to invite a rushee to pledge and the rushees decision to accept or decline the bid can be made in a less clouded, more rational way. A rushee joins a fraternity because he feels wanted, has made a friend and was impressed by the type of men he met. It is the chapter members that sell the rushee, not how big the parties are, or who has the most expensive furniture, the prettiest women or the most beer. Dry rush attracts a greater number of rushees genuinely interested in
fraternity life, rather than rushees interested in free beer. Dry rush clearly delineates for the Brothers, a rush event from a regular social event. It emphasizes that RUSHING is the main business of a rush event. Dry rush necessitates more creative thinking and planning. This can be a real challenge for a chapter that has rushed the same way for many years. Not having alcohol available means not having "liquid courage" to some Brothers. These Brothers may actually feel uncomfortable without a drink in hand. Dry rush is usually less expensive than wet rush. The savings (money that would have been spent on alcohol) can be used to purchase food, or other rushrelated items. The key to convincing our chapter members that rush is more successful without alcohol is to prepare them for rush. In order to sell the chapter, they must know the chapter. It does not take a lot of new and creative party ideas to compensate for what fraternities believe
alcohol contributes to a successful rush. It does take a dedicated and motivated group of men. If a chapter is having a hard time renewing this motivation and dedication in its members, look to the ritual. Every man took an oath which is a commitment. It is time to sell that commitment and to be proud of what it is. It is not so much that someone says you cannot have alcohol, more important is the fact that it is not needed. Do not allow yourselves to feel that the use of a drug (alcohol) is a needed tool to encourage men to consider membership. Sell yourself in the manner in which each fraternity was founded, where brotherhood, scholarship, leadership, service and social graces were ideals that were emulated and exemplified.

PI KAPPA PHI ISSUES
Once a year elections a call to change By Joseph Brady
(Joseph Brady, a member of Epsilon Omicron Chapter at Villanova University, is President of the Northeastern Interfraternity Conference. Also a member of the Order of Omega, an honorary Greek society, Brother Brady has served as Epsilon Omicron's assistant rush chairman and delegate to the Interfratemity Council. He was then elected Villanova's IFC Vice-President and later, President.
Traditionally, Pi Kappa Phi has continued the practice of twice-a-year elections on the basis that more members will have the chance to serve as leaders of their chapter. This perception is thought to be better for the individual; however, it presents some very real disadvantages for Pi Kappa Phi on both the chapter and national levels. As with any ideal, twice-yearly elections look efficient on paper, but in reality the concept is flawed. In fact, the twice-yearly election process has been a contributing factor in the weakening of many undergraduate chapters and a source of weakness to Pi Kappa Phi as an entire unit. Continuity may be the single most important factor to the long term success of any chapter--and the twice-yearly elections prevent this. Many chapters realize, in part, this concept because they elect their Treasurer for a one-year term. These chapters understand the need to maintain stability of the chapter's
by the previous administration and plan for the next year. The monetary cost to the Fraternity is also a significant problem. Each year, tens of thousands of dollars are spent by the Fraternity to train new officers. These sessions of training can be found at Pi Kapp College, A/VA conferences, area conclaves, and the visit of the Leadership Consultants. Far too often the training, and the money spent on the training, is wasted because it is given to officers that will be out of office in three weeks. Many school administrators and Greek advisors share a disdain over our twiceyearly elections. They feel that it is very difficult to establish a good working relationship with Pi Kappa Phi chapters because our officers change so often. In addition to Pi Kappa Phi, this frustration is shared with only one other fraternity, for 55 of the 57 national fraternities have discovered the strength of once-a-year elections. The revolving door process of officer elections has weakened our image among many campus I.F.C.'s and other Greek societies. Just as their officers get to know our officers, establish a working relationship and create programs to improve Greek life â€” we change our officers. Sometimes responsibilities are not fulfilled, which may create a weakening of the potential of the whole Greek system on some campuses. A case made against accepting the once-a-year election format is that there will be a reduction in the number of men Continued on Page 14
When disaster strikes
Pi Kappa Phi is joined in effort
The philosophy that treats fraternities as merely "social" organizations is being tested by many, as fraternities are standing up and addressing the various issues that are facing their members. Pi Kappa Phi has focused on problems such as alcohol abuse, substance abuse, and has recently issued a strong statement concerning sexual abuse. Educational programs have been developed primarily as a way to disseminate information regarding these issues. Often criticism of the Fraternity's purpose results from these statements. This criticism was especially apparent in the case of the Fraternity's statement on sexual abuse. Why was the Fraternity delving into the private issue of male/female relationships? The first fraternity to open up a dialogue on the issue of sexual abuse, Pi Kappa Phi was praised by many for its efforts. Letters from Deans, sorority leaders and wives of alumni encouraged Pi Kappa Phi to continue with its progressive approach to the concept of fraternity. Recently, Pi Kappa Phi was joined by another fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, in making it clear that sexual abuse had no place within the walls of fraternity. Sigma Phi Epsilon appealed to its members with a two-page article titled "Rape:
finances. Too often with twice-yearly elections of the Treasurer bills are not paid, accounts receivable grow too large, and the books become miserably out of balance. Many chapters have recognized this problem. Why,then, do they not recognize the detriment that twice-yearly elections pose to other officers and the efficiency of the chapter as well? It is more important for the long range stability of the chapter that the officer responsibilities, planned programs, and leadership skills â€” so recently acquired â€” should not be lost due to the frequency of elections. There are enough threats to the continuity in a chapter from one year to the next as a result of key leaders graduating without the additional threat of the twice-yearly election process. In any organization the training of new officers is essential to the organization's survival. Too often, in our organization, twice-yearly elections are a handicap to this training process. Often officers are elected just before the end of the school year, which means that all of the unfinished work of the previous administration is dumped upon them with almost no training. New officers are heard to say,"I did not know that this was due or that that had to be done!" The loss to the Fraternity is even greater when the new officer has just enough time to take the oath, study for finals, and pack up to go home for the summer. Every year chapters lose three months of potential brotherhood over the summer because the new officer did not have time to finish the work left to him

The Dead End Date." The article targets incidences of date rape, claiming, "Concern is growing such that it may overtake hazing and alcohol abuse among the threats to fraternity chapters." Craig Templeton, editor of the Sigma Phi Epsilon Journal, says that the reaction to the article has been surprising. "Wives of alumni, who just happen to pick it up when it comes in the mail, have been calling and writing to congratulate and encourage us." Agreeing that the real task that faces fraternities is to carry the theme to undergraduates through educational programs, Templeton said that Sigma Phi Epsilon is in the process of completing a videotaped documentary on sexual abuse to be distributed to chapters. Efforts such as Pi Kappa Phi's and Sigma Phi Epsilon's are only the beginning of a tide of concerns that fraternities are expressing regarding the issues that face us all. One thing is sure, Pi Kappa Phi will be riding the crest of that tide. (For copies of the Sigma Phi Epsilon article titled "Rape: The Dead End Date," write the Administrative Office, P. 0. Box 240526, Charlotte, NC 28224.)
Formal rush was coming to a close in the campus town of Ames,Iowa. To celebrate, Alpha Omicron chapter decided to have what was to be a normal party at the house. The party started in typical fashion, with guests arriving at around 10:30. However, the party ended abruptly when potential disaster struck. On Monday night, August 26, the front veranda collapsed, sending thirty Pi Kapps and guests onto a concrete slab some sixteen feet below. In all, twenty six people went to either the infirmary or the nearby hospital. Four suffered broken ankles, one broke a vertebra in her back, one dislocated a shoulder, one jammed his neck, and numerous people suffered sprains, cuts, and bruises. It was miraculous that no one was critically injured! This article is not to rehash the details of this near tragedy, but rather to commend all parties on their handling of this most difficult situation, and also to illustrate how a chapter should handle an emergency situation or a tragedy. On that Monday night thousands of dorm residents and thrill seekers followed ambulance, police and fire vehicles to the scene at the Pi Kapp house. Rumors of deaths caused by wild partying circulated quickly. Newspaper reporters were quickly on the scene, amid the talk that the veranda collapsed due to drunken swaying and dancing on the veranda, and that the balcony had not been properly inspected for years. Further investigation found both rumors untrue. The balcony actually collapsed due to old age, and simply could not have been prevented or predicted. It was through the immediate responsiveness of Alumni Advisor Warren Madden, the quick thinking of Archon Steve DeVries, and the maturity of the chapter that enabled them to control the situation and turn rumor back to fact. Immediately after the accident, a chapter member called the police, ambulance squad, and Chapter Advisor. Then, the Chapter Advisor notified school officials and the Administrative Office. All local officials were on the scene within minutes. The injured were pulled from the rubble and taken to the hospital in ambulances while chapter members comforted the injured with blankets and tended to the minor injuries. Warren
Emergency workers take injured guests away.
Madden handled the press on the scene and helped keep rumors to a minimum. The following morning the chapter met to review the event and to determine facts. Absolutely no interviews were permitted until all chapter members knew the facts. It was determined that the Archon was to handle all interviews and that the chapter was to comfort the injured guests. That morning, members of the chapter reviewed the guest list and determined who the injured were. They then delivered flowers to all their female guests present and expressed their sympathy. Those that had sprained ankles were offered rides to class or were provided wheelchairs through the local Handicapped Institution that the chapter had raised funds for the month before. All forces moved quickly to turn the near tragedy into a forum to express their caring attitude. The following day insurance appraisers came to inspect the damage to the house and to determine the extent of injuries suffered by the guests. It was through an event like this that the value of insurance surfaced. Property damage was estimated at $15,000, while liability claims were expected to approach $30,000. Without proper insurance the chapter and Housing Corporation could not have survived the financial loss. Soon the house will be restored to original condition, and once again there will be balcony parties. But this time if anything were to happen, the chapter and alumni would feel confident that they could handle any situation with the professionalism that an emergency dictates.

University of Florida Alpha "Awesome" Epsilon By Paul Green While some Greek-letter organizations garner all sorts of unfavorable publicity, of Epsilon Chapter Alpha the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity has been going about doing good works and making itself the "strongest fraternity at the University of Florida," in the words of Dr. Arthur Sandeen, Vice President for Student Affairs. The chapter has done a tremendous job of coming back since it was reduced to six members in 1974 by the national field secretary in a drug-related cleanup. Through hard work and dedication the men that chose to stay with Alpha Epsilon insured its continuity through the early years of rebuilding. Now the chapter has 135 members and 33 associate members with 40 members living in the house on Fraternity Row on campus. A campaign is under way to raise funds for additions to the house. Building chairman, Dr. Charlie LaPradd, recently reported that $350,000 in cash, pledges, and loans had been raised for the effort. The house expansion, which will include a new dining room, an expanded kitchen, a new library and meeting room,17 new living spaces and a new front entrance, is expected to begin in the spring of '86. Because of its many achievements, Alpha Epsilon has earned the name of

"Awesome Epsilon." The chapter has won the coveted University of Florida Kenneth Council's Interfraternity "Buddy" MacKay Fraternal Excellence Award the past five years, the McCarty Community Service Award the past two years, and the annual "Greek Week" competition also for the past two years. The local regional blood center has recognized Alpha Epsilon as the "Fraternity of the Year" for the past two years for donating more pints of blood than any other fraternity on campus (438 pints this year!). The chapter collected $6000
for charities during the '84-'85 school year and raised an additional $12,500 for PUSH in 1985. Although the members of Alpha Epsilon spend much of their time in service for others, don't get the idea they are a bunch of wimps. For instance, six members competed in Pi Lambda Phi's Lift For Life weight-lifting contest this past March. They won the over-all competition and the chapter was proclaimed the strongest house on campus for the third straight year. While this wasn't what Dr. Sandeen
had in mind when he called the Alpha Epsilon Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi the strongest fraternity at the university, it is evident that these young men are strong of body as well as character. "They are the best example of a fraternity growing through hard work and dedication that I've ever seen. The way they care about their members, their university and their community is evident in everything they do. They feel strongly about serving others and their service program leads the way on this campus," Dr. Sandeen concluded.
Michigan State Alpha Theta In the spring of 1983 Alpha Theta Chapter, at Michigan State University, was in critical shape. The chapter was expecting to return with only eight members, a situation complicated by the financial problems the chapter was facing in regards to their chapter house. A reorganization was called for by the chapter's alumni; soon staff members Ernie Johnson, Jay Stuckel and Glenn Dickson were at Michigan State recruiting young men for the challenge of building a "new" Alpha Theta Chapter at MSU. The Michigan State University Greek system provided a challenge to the young unknown group. The chapter returned the following fall committed (as Glenn Dickson said of the men at the time)"to becoming the biggest and the best at everything." Following the initiation of 29 new members in that fall of 1983, the chapter began its ascent through its dedication and hard work of not only the chapter's members, but also the hard work of some very dedicated alumni. Two years later the chapter can boast of an array of awards and accomplishments. The 75 member strong chapter has gained a strong foothold in the Michigan State Greek system as they placed 3rd (out of 18 entries) with Alpha Chi Omega sorority in Greek Sing, a highly competitive song and dance competition at MSU.
The men of Alpha Theta Chapter, Michigan State, celebrate their Rose Ball last spring.
The chapter also placed 3rd in the overall Greek Week standings out of 27 fraternities, while being honored as the runner up for spirit among Greek houses at MSU. In addition to the honors mentioned, the chapter, in two short years, went from reorganization to one of three Champion Master Chapters in 1984-85.
Chapter Advisor Ford Woodard says of the chapter, "I believe that they will â€˘continue on the path they're taking and go as far forward from here, as they have come to this point." The future looks bright for Alpha Theta. The idea of a 100 man chapter was not even questioned this fall â€” it was ex-
pected. The chapter's goals this year include developing a strong PUSH fundraising program and continued growth on campus, as the chapter hopes to change the third place from last spring into first place this spring.

Georgia Southern College Gamma Kappa
Gamma Kappa Chapter at Georgia Southern College has a history extending back to October 2, 1968, when Phil Tappy, Area Governor of Area V at that time, brought the chapter's charter to the small southeast Georgia college. This period during the late 1960's and early to mid-1970's was not an easy time to start a chapter of a fraternity — any fraternity. The chapter continued to thrive through this period because of the late Terry Sapp, Chapter Advisor at the time, who was determined to see the
opportunity for a true fraternal experience continue on campus. Time has seen the chapter change and grow. Five years ago the chapter set out to reach three goals that would focus the chapter's activities for the years to come. The men of the chapter realized they were suffering because of weaknesses in some areas, especially alumni relations. They also recognized that for a long-term future at Georgia Southern, they must build a chapter house in the Greek village that was being established. They also realized that to attain their objectives they would need good, quality men. A young Historian at the time, Glenn Aspinwall, began laying down the framework for improving the chapter's alumni programming. In the years that followed, the chapter never faltered in its pursuit of
the ultimate alumni-student chapter relationship. The chapter presently publishes The Gamma Kapsule three times a year for alumni. Alumni involvement has seen continued growth with attendance at this fall's homecoming doubling that of 1984's. The construction of a new house in Georgia Southern's Greek Village was a priority for the chapter. As a result of a favorable Georgia Supreme Court decision regarding a tax-exempt status for the village, this goal was even more attainable. The success of a strong alumni program has brought Gamma Kappa actually within reach of being the first of 24 fraternities and sororities to build in the new Greek village. This goal was brought closer as a result of the alumni support, which saw a capital fundraising effort
bring in over $40,000 this fall. The chapter has proved consistently that they mean to reach their final, and most important goal, of rushing quality men. The chapter has a well-maintained rapport with the Georgia Southern administration, as many of Gamma Kappa's brothers serve on the Student Union Board and Student Government Association, with several holding offices in those organizations. A 31-man pledge class has demonstrated that a chapter can still have quality with quantity. Striving for quality brotherhood, both today and tomorrow, and reaching for attainable goals have made Gamma Kappa the best that Georgia Southern has to offer and a Champion Master Chapter.
A model of campus involvement Delta Lambda, UNC-C -
The campus leaders of Delta Lambda Chapter, University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
By Todd Stiller and Don Shue "You don't have to be a Greek to be an effective leader, but you have to be a leader to be an effective Greek." In Pi Kappa Phi this phrase is quite appropriate. Leadership has always been a major factor in the Fraternity, with increased emphasis on various leadership skills through Leadership Consultants, Area Conclaves, and Pi Kapp College. At the Delta Lambda Chapter at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte,
leadership is predominant. Of the 84 initiates and associates in the chapter, 18% hold leadership positions in various organizations on campus. Having almost one fifth of the chapter as campus leaders is something of which Delta Lambda is very proud. Not only is the chapter proud because of the number of leaders, but because the leadership is spread among a broad range of campus organizations — from political positions in the Student Govern-
ment Association to business positions with the Student Bank and the school newspaper. Although the responsibilities differ among the various organizations, all the positions require the basic leadership skills available through experience in the Pi Kappa Phi undergraduate chapter. It is this experience gained among fraternity brothers that makes the transition of leadership skills to other organizations a simple and natural process. With so much leadership responsibility

in other organizations, one may be lead to think that this would leave these leaders with no time for the Fraternity. On the contrary, it seems that the more leaders we have in the chapter, the stronger it becomes. Here again it is the knowledge of basic leadership skills such as motivation, organization, and communication acquired within the Fraternity that makes our chapter leaders strong and confident. The majority of the brothers in leadership positions gained their knowledge through Executive Council or committee chair posts. It is invaluable experience in working with people that transfers easily to other groups and organizations. Frequently, Executive Council members and committee chairs hold offices in other organizations simultaneously. For example, at Delta Lambda the Historian is also the Speaker Pro Tempora for the student legislature; while the chapter's Public Relations Chair is also a commuter representative. "Leaders are not born, they are made and you can be one of them!" This quote by Ron Wilson, who spoke at the last Pi Kapp College, tells exactly what Pi Kappa Phi is doing — teaching brothers to be leaders. In the opening phrase of this article it states that one must be a leader to be an effective Greek. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Pi Kappa Phi. It is so very apparent by the dominance exhibited in other campus organizations by Pi Kapps.

ALUMNI I Hall of I Ben Hill Griffin, Jr. Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Fame
Tom Carter and his "boss," President Ronald Reagan.
Tom Carter Air Force Aide to the President A skill that Tom Carter attributes to his 11 months spent working for Pi Kappa Phi in 1974 is his ability to "discriminate between the chiefs and the Indians," a skill he claims has helped him immensely. Major Thomas Carter doesn't have a difficult time discriminating between the chiefs and the Indians on his present job. As Air Force Aide to President Ronald Reagan, Major Carter knows exactly who is the Commander-in-Chief. "The President is the consummate leader," says Brother Carter, "he trusts his staff; he makes decisions and sticks with them." One of those decisions sent Brother Carter to the island of Grenada where he received his combat experience before assuming his present role. As Air Force Aide to President Reagan, Brother Carter serves three functions: He attends ceremonial functions, serves as the President's Emergency Actions Officer, and coordinates all military resources associated with presidential travel. Brother Carter's admiration for the President is evident when he speaks of his job and his boss. "His idealistic, humble approach to American values is easily identifiable with the majority of Americans," says Brother Carter. Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, with his roots in the rural south, he says the President's approach is especially accepted there because, "idealism and patriotism were never out of style." Brother Carter became associated with Pi Kappa Phi at Memphis State University with Gamma Delta Chapter. He recalls that he primarily became involved with the chapter through athletics, but became interested in actually pledging after seeing the enthusiasm of a friend that pledged. He also saw it as a way to broaden his circle of friends. He went on to become Warden, Historian and
Archon of Gamma Delta Chapter. As a delegate to Pi Kapp College in the summer of 1971, Brother Carter met Durward Owen and Jerry Gallups (Director of Alumni Relations at that time) and was asked to become the first intern at the Pi Kappa Phi Administrative Office. The following summer he recalls being named to the Council of Archons at Supreme Chapter with a young man from Alpha Chapter named David Jaffee. The two became good friends later when Brother Carter was stationed at Charleston Air Force Base long before David Jaffee became involved as National President of Pi Kappa Phi. The Fraternity was lucky, for the Air Force could not take Brother Carter immediately upon his graduation, so he joined the staff to "travel for a while." Looking back on his days working for Pi Kappa Phi he recalls, "The key was finding those two or three undergraduates who possessed that 'something special' for Pi Kappa Phi, then reinforcing them to lead." "Pi Kappa Phi means many things to me, but I'd say it was opportunity — the opportunity to meet other men across the nation, but mostly the opportunity to grow as a person and live up to a potential that I didn't know even existed." He adds, "I owe a great deal to Jerry Gallups and Durward Owen for recognizing that 'something special' and facilitating its development." Brother Carter, married to the former Lindy Keane who graduated from the University of Georgia, has two children, Katie, age 4 and Will, age 2. His goals for the future, besides raising a good family, are to fly jets and lead people. "I get immense reward from all three, and the United States Air Force seems to approve. The ability to sucessfully lead people, though, I owe to Pi Kappa Phi."
Ben Hill Griffin delivering a thank you address after his Hall of Fame induction.
Inducted into the Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Fame at the Supreme Banquet on August 10, 1985 was Ben Hill Griffin, Jr., an alumnus of Alpha Epsilon Chapter at the University of Florida. Known first as a citrus grower, Ben Hill Griffin, Jr. is one of the country's most successful citrus farmers, and one of the larger grove owners in Florida. His other interests include a fruit packing house, a bank, a car dealership, a country club, a fertilizer plant and a 16,000 acre ranch with over 5,000 head of cattle. If success were the only criteria for induction into the Hall of Fame, Brother Griffin would have been inducted years ago. It is Brother Griffin's undying concern for his fellow man and dedication to public service that have made him eligible for Pi Kappa Phi's most prestigious honor. Brother Griffin's record of leadership, service and contributions to the state of Florida and its agriculture industry is as vast as it is significant. In addition to serving four consecutive terms in the Florida House of Representatives, he served a four year
term in the Florida State Senate. His role as a leader in the state was evident as he accepted key leadership assignments with many state legislative committees. His support of higher education is ever strong, having served on the board of trustees of Eckerd College and as chancellor of Florida Southern College. Brother Griffin not only gives of himself in his support for higher education, but generously contributes financially as well. His belief that the Florida citrus industry would not be where it is today without research conducted by the Lake Alfred, Florida Research and Education Center led him to donate $500,000 in 1980 to help fund the construction of a $1.35 million exhibition hall and auditorium there. In 1982, Brother Griffin once again answered the call, this time contributing $1 million to construct a 26,200 square foot training center under the south end zone of Florida Field. Head football coach of Florida, Charlie Pell, calls the Ben Hill Griffin Training Center, "the best in the country–bar none." Brother Griffin has also been a strong supporter of his chapter, Alpha Epsilon. He has returned each of the last five years to participate in homecoming festivities, generously contributing $10,000 to assist in the renovation of the chapter house. Most recently, Brother Griffin has made a significant endowment to the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation, which has been the catalyst through which Alpha Epsilon is completing a $360,000 addition to their chapter house. Upon receiving his Hall of Fame award, Brother Griffin remarked about with involvement his continued Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, "The boys gave me a call one year for homecoming and I stopped by for about five minutes and enjoyed myself. I went back the next year and stayed a little longer; and the next year I looked around and saw the kind of things these boys are doing nowadays — things we would have never thought of, good things like you wouldn't believe." Brother Griffin's eligibility for the Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Fame is probably best summed up by U. S. Representative Andy Ireland who said, "His successes are what this country is all about...hard work, stick-to-it-iveness, concern for his fellow man, and dedication to public service."

S. Walter Martin Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Fame "I have always felt that the community would suffer, eventually, if the people are not active," says S. Walter Martin, inductee of the Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Fame, "especially after having been an administrator and president where one is called upon for so many things." Pi Kappa Phi recognized this devotion to his fellow man by awarding S. Walter Martin the highest honor of being inducted into the Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Fame at the 40th Supreme Chapter this summer in Charlotte, North Carolina. Brother Martin, an alumnus of Delta Chapter at Furman University, began his 40-year career in higher education at the University of Georgia where he received his Masters degree in history. After some time as a professor at the University of Georgia, he left to assume the role of president of Emory University in Atlanta. His career in higher education still had not peaked, as five years later he was named vice-chancellor of the university system of Georgia. He then became president of Valdosta State College in Valdosta, Georgia. It was from this position that he lay to rest his administrative duties. Brother Martin, who is President Emeritus of VSC, can be found in his
office on campus where he does historical research for the college, in addition to teaching on a part-time basis. The importance and magnitude of his career have never dimmed his commitment to his community, where he has served more than eleven civic organizations. He has been active with the Rotary Club, the Chamber of Commerce, United Way, and he serves on the Georgia Public Telecommunications Commission, as Well as the Ty Cobb Educational Foundation. In addition to his civic commitment, he has been involved with the Methodist Church for more than 40 years. served has Martin Brother Pi Kappa Phi in the capacity of Chapter Advisor for Lambda Chapter at the University of Georgia during his stay there. Pi Kappa Phi recognizes Brother Martin, not only for his successful career and contributions in higher education, and not only for his dedication to his community through civic activities, but by his ability to merge the two facets — career and civic-mindedness. Each of us can be assured that our communities will not suffer as long as there are men like S. Walter Martin setting fine examples for their fellow man.

During the recent 40th Supreme Chapter meeting in Charlotte, NC, I had the great honor of receiving our Fraternity's highest award, Mr. Pi Kappa Phi. The honor was especially significant to me, as it was presented at the opening banquet and in the presence of so many long-time Pi Kappa Phi friends. Three of my brothers from my years at Lambda Chapter, 24 years ago, were also present and that made the evening and the award even more special. What a wonderful night it was. But why me? I'm really not sure. Certainly, my contributions cannot even begin to equal those of past honorees like Mel Metcalfe, Ted Scharfenstein, Elmer Jost, Ben Covington, Al Head, John Wilson, Bob Bennett and John Diemler — all of whom I've known and held in very high esteem. They are, to me, Mr. Pi Kappa Phis. Why me? The real answer to that question must, I suppose, rest in an individual's care, concern, and, in a truer sense, one's love for the Fraternity, translated into a willingness to seek out opportunities to assist in the goals of Pi Kappa Phi. That I have done and will do until my last breath. I do love Pi Kappa Phi. No one can ever know what it has done for me. As a transfer student to the University of Georgia in the fall of 1960, I didn't know a single person on campus. I was working two jobs -- night manager of the Athens Holiday Inn and assistant manager Club. Country Athens the of Pi Kappa Phi gave me a place to live. It gave me instant caring brothers who, on many, many occasions helped me through hard times. Sometimes it was through a smile or a joke or someone to talk with and share a problem. The comradery and the close brotherhood made those years the best I've ever known. We built homecoming displays (and always won first place), we played sports, we had Christmas parties for orphans, we collected food for needy families, we did everything in our power to show that we cared — for each other and for everyone around us who needed a helping hand. Even today those Pi Kappa Phi brothers from my undergraduate days, and those who have since become friends (like Durward Owen, Ted Scharfenstein and Bill Finney, Tom Sayre, David Jaffee and Bill Fuqua, etc., etc.) are, to me, my best friends, truly my brothers. After graduation I tried to see to it that others could share in the Pi Kappa Phi experience. I served as a volunteer Area Governor in Georgia. I assisted in starting ten new chapters of Pi Kappa Phi in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and in New York and California where my company, Eastman Kodak, had advanced my career. I've served the Fraternity as a National Council Board member in several capacities; I was asked to be the first Chairman of PUSH and had the great privilege of seeing that marvelous program start its dynamic growth and contribution. There are many other
areas that I've spent time in for Pi Kappa Phi — because it is worth it. It matured and nurtured me when I most needed it. It made me a more caring person and taught me many of life's most valuable lessons. It's impossible for me, and probably for you too, to ever repay that debt. I'm trying. The formula, I suppose, for selection to this honor, Mr. Pi Kappa Phi, is just that — caring and making the effort to give back what Pi Kappa Phi has given to you. From personal experience I can promise you that it will be well worth the time you spend. I am awed by my selection and by the company in which it has placed me. Thank you Pi Kappa Phi for caring for me.
' l Tappy [ Mr. Pi Kappa Phi Phil Tappy was born in Washington, D. C. in November of 1939. He graduated from high school in Morganton, N. C. and then attended a small church-related private college in Brevard, N. C. While at Brevard, Phil was captain of his tennis team, a member of the Delphian Literary society, sports editor and co-editor of the college newspaper, a member of the Monogram Club, and he served on the freshman advisory board. After receiving his A. A. degree at Brevard, Phil transferred to the University of Georgia and was initiated into Lambda Chapter in 1961. He held the chapter offices of Historian, Warden, rush chairman, and pledge master, as well as participating in other college activities such as intramural sports, IFC, and the Art Student League. Phil received a BFA degree from the University of Georgia, with a major in advertising and a minor in art history. The Eastman Kodak Company hired Phil in December of 1960 as a sales representative for the Microfilm and Information Systems Division. He advanced through numerous corporate assignments, including staff assistant to the vicepresident and general manager of the Business Systems Division. Phil has received every marketing award offered by his company, and is responsible for at least ten other members of Pi Kappa Phi being offered jobs with Kodak. Phil is extremely active in the Charlotte community as a member of Rotary, Big Brothers of America, Charlotte Good Presbyterian Fellow Club, Trinity Church, United Way group chairman, and a Charlotte Leadership Graduate. Phil has coached Little League Baseball for over 20 years and was selected as Little League Coach of the Year for Charlotte in 1983. Phil is married to the former Lisa Thornton of College Park, Georgia (President of Alpha Delta Pi at Mercer University). They have two sons,"Skip," age 13 and Lee, age 10. They reside in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The pay is lousy. The job can be frustrating. It takes some time (not necessarily a lot, an hour or two a week). The consistency of building rapport and providing continuity are greater measures of effectiveness than time investment.
The motivation of many advisors is loyalty to the Fraternity—they want to see Pi Kappa Phi continue and grow. They want to "pay back" something they received, often because an advisor was there. The . American College Personnel Association asked undergraduate leaders to rank functions most important for their advisor. Here are the results: 1. To provide advice when called upon. 2. Teach techniques of good leadership and fellowship. 3. Provide continuity with the history and tradition of the group. 4. Help members develop self discipline and responsibility. 5. Prevent the group from breaking university rules. 6. Supply the organization with information, expert knowledge and insight gained through experience. Barbara Robel, advisor for Greek Affairs at Kansas State University, suggests being an advisor is an opportunity to stay in touch with the college generation—to know first hand what the perceived issues and concerns are. She says: "The position is one of the few jobs that will turn one's hair gray while keeping a person young." Advisors talk about their rewards. Seeing a group respond and improve. Helping with career choices. Years later having men they've worked with call to announce a marriage, a birth, or a personal success—and to say "thanks." One chapter advisor expressed his reactions in a very personal manner: "A shocking percentage of our young brothers today come from broken homes. Many have never identified with an adult figure. Many have had little training in managing their lives or anything else. "The campus can be a pretty cold, impersonal place. The campus may provide some highly trained professionals for them to turn to, but they're not comfortable with them. They're comfortable at the fraternity. And with me. They know I care. I may not be highly trained, but I've kept a lot of kids in school, kept a lot from making serious mistakes. I've had a lot turn to me with some pretty startling personal problems—and together we've handled them. "As a fraternity advisor, I've changed lives in a way I couldn't do anywhere else. What do I get in return? Love. And brotherly love is what it's all about, isn't it?" It is indeed. There's an empty chair waiting. It's just your size.
decade. However, if it does proceed along the levels of minimal trend analysis exercise predictions it may well be significant. Will this depress or enlarge Pi Kappa Phi's market? We look at the previous two observations and turn our attention to lifestyles, dress, exercise habits, food concepts and other influences and what do we have? Is there developing a reduction, or de-emphasis, of the traditional sex role? Are we seeing a "look-alike" social scene developing? How does that affect the all-male environment of a fraternity? Of Pi Kappa Phi? Are there now more "strange" religions vying for our student attention? And some would say fraternity is a religious orientation -- having a central focus in the form of one or both of the two great traditional religions. As freshmen arrive with a variety of religious fervor and concepts, and are thrust upon with more and more aggressive forms of spiritual awareness, will they reject or have greater need for fraternity expressed "religion"? College administrators are now struggling without wanting to appear to do so. Struggling with the impact of a litigation society and 100% increase in cost of liability insurance -- when they can get it! Where do they go? They find it difficult to admit it, however the return of en loco prentis is not around the comer -it is here! Rules are not first levied upon the undisciplined. Are not fraternities
organized and to some degree disciplined? Will this filter down and impact Pi Kappa Phi? Now, if we are not confused enough, what are we told is the single most important drive of most of today's students? Is it not to achieve greatly in academics for promise of earlier personal gain -- both in and out of the campus environment? After all, the Jaguar and lakeside condo await the quick and the achiever. Will he have time for Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, or any other delaying aspect of his social environment? Will his time be filled with electrosonic interface rather than face-to-face with his Pi Kappa Phi brother? Today it would appear that personal success is measured by software skills and not by people skills. Or will our Fraternity become an electronic storehouse and only incidentally a personal experience shared with other personal experiences? It could be enough to bring drugs back to the chapter, if they indeed completely left us; or even a dress down with resulting weird hair and perhaps a defeat of our cleverly achieved Pi Kappa Phi alcohol control program. Our social environment will certainly reflect these concerns and subsequently reflect in Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. However we handle them will reflect our worth. Perhaps we will reverse the roll and entice Pi Kappa Phi and other fraternities to impinge upon our social environment. Pi Kappa Phi can do it.
The empty chair ftv It sits there, empty, at too many meetings of Pi Kappa Phi chapters. It's the advisor's chair. And that vacant chair is the biggest threat to the growth and development of Pi Kappa Phi today. Where it's filled, chapters are healthy, stable and growing; members are enjoying and learning from their Pi Kappa Phi experience. Where it's empty, there are problems. And that chair is empty in many of our Fraternity's chapters. With a fourth to a third of a chapter's membership changing every year, an advisor is vital for continuity. A chapter is a complex, living, fluid organization. It needs on-the-scene guidance to achieve its full potential. Without an advisor the impact of national programs, manuals, materials and annual consultation visits is often lost. Shelley Sutherland, Greek Advisor at Indiana State University and past president of the Association of Fraternity Advisors, sounded a warning to the Greek system when she stated,"With more and more national headquarter staffs being
reduced and travel costs reducing field work, the role of the chapter advisor becomes critical to the future of the system." Why haven't more Pi Kappa Phi alumni come forward to help? Perhaps because they haven't been asked. Pi Kappa Phi has been aggressively trying to find and recruit advisors where it can. Sadly, the Fraternity is often having to turn to non-members. But the ideal and the real are far apart. And it is a concern. Wilford A. Butler, CAE, executive director of Delta Upsilon Fraternity says: "Please don't wait to be asked to help your chapters; they might die during the wait." What is an advisor? A friend. Someone who believes in young people and will offer the benefit of his common sense and experience. An advisor is not a director or a dictator. The major role is to offer advice when it is requested and when it is critical the chapter hear it. Those two situations do not always occur simultaneously. Undergraduates often make decisions without the experience to consider liabilities
The social situation as it impinges on fraternities AN ENVIRONMENTANALYSIS By Durward W. Owen
In 1975 I produced a ten-year projection of the fraternity system utilizing the Delphi technique for non-quantitative forecasting. This was accomplished as part of my requirements for a thesis in order to qualify for my MBA degree. The results were reprinted in many fraternity journals and other publications.
For a while I was in great demand as a speaker if I would expound on my forecast results. We still have not changed our concern for the future, at least our interest in trying to know how it may impinge upon our personal and public lives. The future, and perhaps even the immediate future, of college Greek letter fraternities, and of course Pi Kappa Phi, will be significantly impacted by a number of social influences. As a social animal we cannot avoid the effects, to a lesser or greater degree, of any phase of our social environment. However, some will be dramatic, spectacular and significant in their influence. Some few, which may be unexpected, we need to examine. As we observe more single parent families emerging as the norm, our membership will encounter a lesser traditional family influenced market. It would appear that the predominate influences will be matriarchal in form and substance. The effect of this factor should be reflected in our procedures. The increasing percentages of females in the college market now exceeds 50% of the total. No one yet is predicting how much the increase will be in another
or ramifications. The advisor is there not to make the decision, but to make sure all issues are considered. One of the greatest in membership of advantages Pi Kappa Phi is leadership experience. A good advisor bites his tongue to let a group learn from mistakes—but gauges the potential impact of a mistake and intervenes when necessary. An advisor is a role model—a living illustration of the fact that fraternity continues after graduation and the values and principles taught in the chapter have a very real application in the everyday world. An advisor helps the chapter see the world beyond its own campus—in terms of Fraternity, in terms of life. An advisor is a resource—not just an authority. He's a counselor, available to turn to when an individual or the group has need. Why be an advisor?

Married, single, Jewish, Christian, conservative, liberal, good-looking and not so good-looking â€” you name it! They were as diverse as you will ever see, and yet, for three hours and forty minutes they were as one. A psalmist reminds us of "how good it is for brothers to dwell together." It was a perfect example of "how good" it can be when the dedicated members of the Nu Phi Society of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity joined together on Monday evening, August 12, 1985 at the 40th Supreme Chapter for their biennial black tie banquet. This third year of Nu Phi activity has resulted in $14,220 being raised for the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation. Yet, this it not the reason for Nu Phi. Recognition of loyalty and love for Pi Kappa Phi remains the substance of which Nu Phi is made. After attending five Supreme Chapters, and consequently experiencing the sharing of fraternity and brotherhood at its finest hour, one is eligible to participate in Nu Phi. In attendance this year were 36 loyal Pi Kappa Phi's:

New incentive program increases local control of PUSH donations The Board of Directors of PUSH has recently created a new incentive program for chapters to go into effect during the 1985-86 school year. The new program, entitled the Chapter Escrow Account Program, will allow all chapters contributing $2500 or more to PUSH (Bronze, Silver, and Gold Star Clubs) to acquire PUSH furnishings directly, and to donate those furnishings to any local agency of their choice. The Chapter Escrow Account Program was created in order to provide chapters with an additional incentive for raising money on behalf of PUSH, to stimulate the continuation of mutually beneficial relationships between chapters and agencies serving the handicapped, and to relinquish to chapters a substantial amount of control over the allocation of donated PUSH equipment. For the first time, chapters will now be able to control their own destiny in terms of donated PUSH equipment and to see concrete local results for their efforts, rather than hoping for an abstract donation at some time in the future. Under the terms of the new program, Bronze Star chapters ($2500 contribution) will have an escrow account created in their name, and one-third of their total contribution will be deposited into that account. Similarly, Silver Star chapters ($5000 contribution) will receive a deposit of one-half their total contribution, and Gold Star chapters ($10,000 contribution) will receive a deposit of two-thirds their total contribution. Chapters possessing escrow accounts will thereafter be able to use the funds in their escrow account to purchase items in the PUSH catalogue for donation to any facility or agency of their choice. This means that a chapter contributing $3000 will receive an escrow deposit of $1000, while a contribution of $6000 will result in an escrow deposit of $3000, and a $12,000 contribution will generate an $8000 escrow deposit. The utilization of these funds will thereafter be completely controlled by the chapter itself, rather than by the
Board of Directors. Qualifying chapters will actually have four options for using their escrow account: 1) The funds may be expended immediately for the purchase of PUSH equipment. 2) Funds may be allowed to accumulate so that a more expensive item can be purchased in the future, but within a two-year period of the deposit. 3) Money in the escrow account may be combined with funds of other chapters, or with equipment funds of the sponsored agency, thereby permitting the purchase of a more expensive item than either fund could afford on its own. 4) The chapter may compete for the donation of a PUSH unit, as determined by the Board of Directors, and use funds in the escrow account to offset the cost of the donation of the full PUSH unit. Obviously, a program such as this was impossible prior to the development of the PUSH catalogue, which contains a menu of smaller, less expensive groupings of PUSH equipment. Now, however, chapters can use the catalogue to select from a variety of items which are appropriate for mental retardation facilities, children's hospitals, school programs, day care centers, and other worthy recipients. If your chapter does not have a copy of the PUSH catalogue, order one immediately from the Administrative Office. By having a catalogue, both your chapter and potential recipients will become excited about the available options. Full details of the Chapter Escrow Account Program are contained in A Complete Guide to PUSH, a new piece of resource material now available to all chapters at no cost. A copy of the Guide can be obtained by contacting the PUSH office at (704) 433-0233. If you would like to find out more about this exciting new program, have your PUSH chairman pick up the phone and give us a call.
Beginning in the summer of 1986, PUSH will fund two eight-week internships for undergraduate members of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. The two interns, who will be selected on a competitive basis, will join the staff of PUSH in Morganton, North Carolina for a full time work/study experience. Each intern will receive a stipend of $1200, plus free housing and a modest allocation for meals. In addition to monetary rewards, the PUSH interns will be granted three hours of course credit through Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. Credit will be given for independent study in the area of special education, but each intern will be responsible for negotiating the transfer of credits back to his college or university. Interns will be provided with a variety of challenging and, hopefully, enriching experiences. This opportunity will be particularly beneficial to men considering careers in the areas of special education, psychology, or other human services fields. A thorough and personal knowledge of PUSH is another anticipated outcome of the experience. Projected internship activities will include an apprenticeship in case management for the handicapped. Working closely with a PUSH case manager, the intern will gain experience in working directly with handicapped persons and with a variety of public and private agencies providing services to PUSH clients. In addition, the intern may, based on background and interests, become involved in the development of promotional materials, public relations,
or the design and manufacture of PUSH equipment. To the extent possible, every effort will be made to custom-design the internship experience so as to provide maximum benefit to the men selected. Only sophomore and junior members of the Fraternity are invited to apply. Applications must be received no later than January 31, 1986 in order to be considered. Those wishing to apply should submit the following information to Mickey Thigpen, PUSH, Inc., P. 0. Box 1972, Morganton, NC 28655: 1) A brief resume containing vital statistics, including name, date of birth, mailing address, telephone number, school, chapter, class, major, grade point average, previous employment and voluntary activities, extra-curricular activities, honors or offices awarded or held, and previous involvement in PUSH. 2) A certified copy of all courses and grades. 3) Three letters of recommendation, at least one of which must come from a faculty member in your major area of study. 4) A typed justification, of no more than two pages in length, of why you think you should be selected as an intern. This document may include previous interest in or activities on behalf of the handicapped, current interests both inside and outside of the classroom, future career and service goals, and a statement of what you would hope to accomplish through an internship experience.
PUSH Bits'n Pieces PLEDGES AND CONTRIBUTIONS are both ahead of last year's pace. As of September 30, forty-two chapters had pledges a total of $103,451. If your chapter has not yet made a pledge for the year, now's the time to climb on board! Contributions as of the same date are up 205% over last year. PUSH DONATED UNITS will be placed in Woodward State School and Hospital in Woodward, Iowa, and the Children's hospital of the King's Daughters in Norfolk, Virginia in early 1986. A COMPLETE GUIDE TO PUSH should have already been received by every chapter that has submitted a pledge card. If your chapter has returned a pledge card but has not yet received a Guide, contact the PUSH office. If we have not received a pledge card from your chapter, we don't know who your PUSH chairman is and have not yet mailed you a Guide. Call PUSH and give us a name and address and we will send you a copy. KAPPA CHAPTER, UNC-Chapel Hill, through Jeff Michael, is pursuing corporate contributions through the Research Triangle and a number of large companies to furnish a new building at Murdoch Center in Butner, NC. TAU CHAPTER, NC State, in the person of Graham Gurnee, is solicitating a large grant from the Bryan Family Foundation to support a local project. DELTA SIGMA CHAPTER at Bowling Green, which has previously sponsored the Sunshine Children's Home, has found another private facility, the Filling Home in Napoleon, Ohio, which wants Delta Sigma to help them get some PUSH furnishings. Ken Kaiser is pursuing a number of funding options and is also going to be selling items from the PUSH catalogue to local facilities as part of a marketing course. EPSILON NU at California-Sacramento is also going after corporate funds through Stuart Volker, who will be joining the Administrative Office staff in December. DELTA UPSILON at Pittsburgh has a residential facility nearby which has approached PUSH about working with Delta Upsilon to receive donated furnishings through cooperative fundraising efforts. KEN BELLINGER, ALPHA THETA '29, working through the International Association of Shrine Yacht Clubs, of which he is a member, has managed to have the PUSH catalogue reviewed by the Board of the Shriners' Chicago Hospital for possible use of PUSH furnishings at that facility. BRUCE WAGAR, GAMMA ALPHA '65, is principal of a large public educational facility for the handicapped located in Hollywood, Florida. Bruce would like to have a chapter in Florida sponsor his school. If you are interested, call Bruce at (305)981-8911. THE SUPERINTENDENTS of every public residential facility in the states of Pennsylvania and Tennessee have recently seen a slide presentation on PUSH, and each superintendent has received a PUSH catalogue. If you are located in one of these states, contact the nearest facility and you're likely to find a very receptive audience. All facilities are listed in the Guide to PUSH.

-11M 7 FORU PI KAPPA PH4-
(The Pi Kappa Phi Forum will be a continuing part of the Star and Lamp, providing space to air your thoughts of Pi Kappa Phi, respond to Pi Kappa Phi issues or to give feedback on the many aspects of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity.) Catherine Coleman (1984 National Rose Queen)— "I just wanted to again thank you all for making my year as National Rose so great. You have all been so gracious and ever-helpful. You made a great honor an even better one. I wish each and every one of you all the luck in the world and I hope our paths may cross again."
The Beta Iota Chapter - Toledo Delegation to Supreme Chapter — "For many of us in our delegation, this was the first, of what will hopefully be many, Supreme Chapter meetings. We left after our four-day stay in Charlotte excited and enthusiastic about our Fraternity. We certainly received more than our registration fee was worth. We were all very impressed with the seriousness by which our Fraternity business is done. In short, we would like to extend our sincerest thank-yous for a fantastic Supreme Chapter. See you in Dallas!"
Mr. & Mrs. Sam Wahlen (Parents of the 1985 Student of the Year, Jeff Wahlen) — "You might be interested to know how it feels to be the parents of Pi Kappa Phi's Student of the Year. Both of us were Greeks in college, though I was not a Pi Kappa Phi. I was disappointed Jeff didn't join my fraternity, but I know he made the right choice. As you know, Jeff was offered the privilege of leading a recolonization of your Beta Eta Chapter. We were proud, but awed by the responsibility placed upon him as a sophomore. Two young men from your national office showed up to help and stayed with us for a week while the alumni were making the house habitable. While I don't remember their names, they were a credit to your Fraternity and the Greek system. Rush was a success and the chapter has grown in the past three years. I understand the fall pledge class consists of 25 men, including Jeff's brother, Eric. This puts the chapter in good shape as far as numbers go, and our experience in meeting and knowing many of these young men is that they are the cream of the crop! Yes, it has been work; like any organization one receives in proportion to what one gives. Jeff has worked hard for Pi Kappa Phi and Beta Eta Chapter, but I'm sure he feels his work has rewarded him beyond what he feels he has given. We are proud -- of Jeff, of Beta Eta, of Pi Kappa Phi, and of the Greek system -- for again it has proved to us it can build the character and best qualities one hopes to find in individuals. We are also proud Eric will be a Pi Kappa Phi because we know he will benefit from his affiliation with Pi Kappa Phi. In four short years Pi Kappa Phi at Florida State has become a powerhouse among Greeks. All of Pi Kappa Phi should rejoice because these results show that your system works. The help Beta Eta received from all of Pi Kappa Phi, not just the work of a few individuals, made it succeed. Keep up the good work and have a good 1985-86 school year!"
Christopher P. Cannon, Alumnus of Delta Lambda-UNCC (On Supreme Chapter) — "The entire affair was well orchestrated, efficient and a totally enjoyable experience. I only wish some of my business meetings could be so well done."
S. Walter Martin - President-Emeritus, Valdosta State College and Hall of Fame Recipient (to Durward Owen regarding his election to the Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Fame)—
Many Supreme Chapter attendees took advantage of the thrills available at Carowinds, a theme park located minutes from the home of the 40th Supreme Chapter, the Charlotte Marriott Executive Park Hotel. A highlight of the 40th Supreme Chapter was the Supreme Banquet, held Sunday, August 11th. The banquet, which featured the awards ceremony, provided a treat as Brother Maury Covington, of Beta Chapter, did a character portrayal of founder, L. Harry Mixson. The singing of the men of Beta Omega Chapter at East Tennessee State also made this evening a night to remember. The business of the convention began the following day as the men of Pi Kappa Phi convened in the spacious facilities of the Charlotte Marriott Executive Park for the "State of the Fraternity" address by National President, David Jaffee. The business continued as committee meetings and the first Supreme Chapter sessions dealt with the important matters placed before the Fraternity. The Nu Phi Society met Monday, August 12th at the Registry Inn for a gourmet feast. Nu Phi, a society consisting of those members who have attended at least five Supreme Chapters, meets for a black tie formal event at each Supreme Chapter. (For more on Nu Phi see page 11.) Nearly 30 former staff members came together the following morning for the "Former Staff Breakfast." In a touching presentation, each former staff member was presented with an "I worked for Durward" t-shirt by Durward Owen, Executive Director for the past 26 years. Following the business of the day, buses loaded up for the Charlotte Motor Speedway where Supreme Chapter delegates, alumni and families were treated to a Carolina pig pickin' sponsored by Eastern Airlines.
With the help of Xi alumntii, Ed Bennett, Eastern Airlines provided spectacular entertainment for the finale of the convention. A stunt pilot, showing off his aerobatic skills, started off what would be a truly exciting evening. Carlton Moody and the Moody Brothers Band provided music and the Sugarfoot Clogers provided atmosphere, making the pig pickin' barbeque an authentic southern event. The night was brought to a stunning conclusion with a Pi Kappa Phi fireworks sky show. For all attending it was a brilliant evening. Following the passing of a hat for the Fraternity's philanthropy, PUSH, at the final Supreme Chapter session of this, the 40th Supreme Chapter, the attendees gathered for a farewell lunch. The announcement that over $728 had been raised in less than 15 minutes at the session sent Pi Kapps on their way back a renewed spirit in with home Pi Kappa Phi, filled with memories of fraternity in the highest sense.
Local newscaster and Pi Kapp, Bob Inman, was the master of ceremonies at the Supreme Banquet.
"Thanks again for the honor which Pi Kappa Phi bestowed upon me last weekend. I appreciate all that was done for me. I enjoyed the banquet and the festivities very much. "I am impressed with the fine work which you have done, and are doing, for the Fraternity. Such programs as your Sexual Abuse Awareness program and the Alcohol Abuse program are truly noteworthy. Keep up the good work."

THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUR ADDRESS Did you ever wonder how your Star and Lamp keeps catching up with you -- no matter how many times you move? Your collegiate Fraternity finds a way to get you back on the member address list, despite the fact that you never told them where you moved. This fall over 2000 dues solicitation letters came back "Return to Sender," costing your Fraternity 22 cents each. This is in addition to the postage costs to get them to the wrong address, as well as the costs of processing 2000 address changes in clerical time. This all adds up to an enormous expense. The Pi Kappa Phi membership roster is also the mailing list for the Star and Lamp of Pi Kappa Phi. After each mailing of the quarterly hundreds of address changes flood the Administrative Office, provided mostly by the U. S. Post Office. This enables us to keep you in touch with your Fraternity, and Pi Kappa Phi with you. Directory assistance is available to any source holding Pi Kappa Phi membership, provided there is no commercial use intended. Chapters, associations, or individual members wishing to have mailing labels or a computer printout of the membership may order them through the Administrative Office at cost. The information is processed from the current addressed alumni roll and is available in three formats: 1. All members of a particular chapter, past and present, in order of initiation number, alphabetical, or geographical. 2. All members in a particular state, based on current addresses. 3. All members within a specific zip code. Members wanting specific address information on a small number of members may obtain such from the Pi Kappa Phi Administrative Office upon request. The next time you move please remember to keep your address current with the "Administrative Office (or remind a brother who has moved to do the same). Someone may need to get in touch with you or you may need to get in touch with someone else.

Once a year elections— a call to change Continued from page 3
who can hold offices. This is true in name only. Yes, fewer people will be able to state that they were the Historian or Secretary, but changing the election process may increase the number of people who have responsibilities. If a chapter is running smoothly new responsibilities will be added, creating a need for more members to be involved. Chapters that have already switched to once-a-year elections cite an increased efficiency in their committee systems. In addition, the committee system is the best place to train the next Archon because the chairman of a good committee must hold meetings--demonstrating his leadership skills before he ever attempts to lead the entire chapter. A well run chapter will actually increase the number of chances that each member has to hone his leadership skills.
A concern over once-a-year elections arises in the instance of the result of a bad choice of officers. The inherent strength of a once-a-year election is that it forces the candidate to plan further ahead if he wishes to run for office. The aspiring leader must demonstrate his leadership skills for some period before gaining an office. The chapter, as a whole, will inevitably place a more serious emphasis on its selection process if they know that it is for an entire year, as opposed to a decision where results will only be felt for a few months. Yet, if an officer is elected who proves to be damaging to the chapter, a chapter should not hesitate in removing him for the good of the chapter. The chapter should never wait until the term runs out. If Pi Kappa Phi is going to continue to grow, continue to improve, continue to lead the way. . . then we must continue to improve and accept change. Twice-yearly elections are holding this Fraternity back from greater accomplishments which lie ahead.
