Hall of Fame members join Chapter Eternal Two of Pi Kappa Phi's most distinguished members recently joined the Chapter Eternal - both were members of the Fraternity's Hall of Fame. They died within six days of each other. Ben Hill Griffin, Jr., an Alpha Epsilon Chapter-University of Florida alumnus, died March 1,at his home in Avon Park, Fla., at the age of 79. Omicron ChapterUniversity of Alabama's Joe Sewell died Griffin March 6, at his son's home in Mobile, Ala. The baseball Hall of Famer was 91. Griffin was a citrus, land and cattle baron. He was a major contributor both to his chapter, the National Fraternity and his alma mater the Gators. GrifSewell fin's gift of$107,000 in 1986 is the largest single gift ever given to the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation. Brother Griffin was initiated as AE's #117 on Feb. 12,1931. He was inducted into the Pi Kappa Phi Hall ofFame in 1985,at the Fraternity's 40th Supreme Chapter in Charlotte, NC. Last fall, in a presentation before the kickoff ofthe Gators'first home game of the season, Florida Field was officially dedicated "Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida Field."

Tommy Lasorda becomes a Pi Kapp
Dodgers manager initiated at Super
Conclave in Atlanta Tommy Lasorda,manager ofthe Los Angeles Dodgers, became an alumnus initiate of Pi Kappa Phi at Super Conclave, held Feb. 10 in Atlanta. National President Stephen DePalma asked Lasorda to join the Fraternity last all in a Columbus Day parade in New Jersey.They both were being honored for their achievements as Italians and were riding in the same car in the parade. "Tommy Lasorda is a fellow who has been practicing the ideals and principles of Pi Kappa Phi all his life, except he just didn't know he was a member of the organization," DePalma said. Lasorda said the membersâ€˘ of the ritual team from Iota-Georgia Tech, Gamma Nu-LaGrange and Epsilon Kappa-Southern Tech did an "extraordinary job." Nearly 500 brothers watche d the event. "I am deeply honored that finally - at the age of 62 - I could join such a great Fraternity," Lasorda said. "I am especially impressed with the ideals of this Fraternity." After his initiation, he addressed the brothers for 45 minutes about baseball and succeeding in life. He joked that he had never seen "so many candidates for a Slim-Fast commercial in my entire life." (If you haven't seen Lasorda on the field, you probably have seen him in a SlimFast advertisement.)

vaiuesiissuEs The good news is that 87 percent of the men said that rape was neverjustified - under any circumstance. The bad news is that 13 percent felt that in some instances it was. Most of these men held traditional views of sex roles. They believed that a woman was leading a man on if she asked him to her apartment or allowed him to pay for all the expenses. Most traditionalists and even some non-traditionalists in this study believed that this implied a sexual invitation, which the woman had no right to withdraw later on. Early education is critical to change these "macho"attitudes, and women must learn in what ways their actions can be misinterpreted by the men they meet.
tall, shapely blonde walks quickly down the darkened street, her beautiful face is illuminated by a single street light. It is late and she is hurrying back to her car. She hears a noise and instinctively clutches her purse; her step quickens and she nervously glances behind her. Suddenly a man leaps from behind a bush and grabs her - his face is hidden by a ski mask. He covers her mouth with his hand and pulls her to the ground - and rapes her. A young woman wakes up abruptly in the middle of the night, her heart seized in terror. Something is wrong. She looks up to see a stranger standing at the foot of her bed; suddenly he climbs onto the bed - and rapes her. Most people imagine the typical rapist as a psychotic stranger lurking in an alley, waiting for a beautiful, young woman to happen by. There is nothing typical about rape. In Florida last year,rape victims varied from three months to 89 years old; rape does not single out the young or the beautiful. According to the FBI, in 1986 there were over 90,000 reported forcible rapes. Between 1977 and 1986, that rate increased by 42 percent, making rape the most rapidly growing major crime in the United States. What is perhaps most appalling is that over 50 percent of all rapes are committed by an acquaintance of the victim.
The good news is that 87 percent of the men said that rape was never justified.
In a recent study, one in 12 men admitted that he had tried to force a woman to have sexual intercourse through physical force. To understand the increasingly violent sexual society we live in. we must first look at the sexual mores ofour youth.The last few decades have seen a general loosening of sexual standards. With the advent ofthe birth control pill, many people are sexually active at a younger age. Indiana University just finished a study of conservative Marion County, Indiana. Their study found that by the 13th birthday,55 percent of all guys had had sexual intercourse. By the 15th birthday 57 percent of all girls in Marion County had had sexual intercourse. These figures concur with a national survey done by Seventeen magazine which showed that teenagers lose their virginity,on the average, by age 16 and that 82 percent are sexually active by age 21. While these figures in themselves are cause for concern, when seen in conjunction with the rape situation they are alarming. The sheer magnitude ofstatistical information on rape is staggering. A study by five researchers at Oregon State University showed that well over 12 percent of the 644 high school students sampled experienced physical abuse on a date. A major high school in San Diego reported that 26 percent of its girls between 9th and 12th grade had already been raped. In fact, the average age of a rape victim is between 15 and 24 years old. The FBI estimates that one in six women will be raped or assaulted during her college years. One in four will be a victim of attempted sexual assault or rape in her lifetime. The FBI's study showed that 27.2 percent of all university women have already been raped; 57.8 percent by their dates. Stanford University just released a study indicating one out of three women have raped; one out of eight men has been homosexually raped. In the past six years, more than 75 documented gang rapes have occurred on college campuses; 80 percent to 90 percent of these

When A Date Becomes A Crime involved fraternities. After awhile, the numbers seem to blur together as study after study tells us what we already know, that rape is occurring with alarming frequency. This is happening in part because we are not properly educating our students. In recent study of 7,000 students from 32 college campuses, one in 12 men admitted that he had tried to force a woman to have sexual intercourse through physical force or coercion; yet virtually none of these men identified the situation as rape. In 1987, three Texas psychologists probed the attitudes of268 college men aged 19.The researchers found that the men fell into two
groups: those who held traditional thoughts that men, not women,should ask for dates, pay for dates, make decisions about dating activities and initiate any intimate behavior; and the non-traditionalists who believed in equality between the sexes. The men were presented with different scenarios; in some the woman asked the man out or bore all the expenses ofthe evening.In others,the couple spent the evening alone in the man's apartment or went to a movie.The college men were asked to indicate in which of these dating situations the man would be justified in forcing his attention on the woman against her will.
If a woman goes on a date with a man, and he then forces her to have sex, is that rape? The dictionary says it is, and so does the law. Webster's defines rape as "sexual intercourse with a woman by a man without her consent and chiefly by force or deception" - nothing to do with how well she knows him. The common legal definition of rape is "forced intercourse by a man on a woman." The term "acquaintance rape" is used to describe forced intercourse by someone the victim knows; "date rape" is used when the victim has held an ongoing social relationship with the attacker.The emotional effects ofdate or acquaintance rape are often the most devastating,because the crime happens when the victim feels safe. Acquaintance rape is a violation ofa woman's trust as well as her body. It is an act of violence. Acquaintance rape victims are mostoften younger college women, who are less experienced in dealing with people,and therefore less assertive. than older college women. This points to the need to build assertiveness among women entering college. Assertiveness is often a problem among men as well especially fraternity men. There are times when we feel a brother is acting inappropriately, perhaps because he has had too much to drink. We are afraid to speak up, to confront him. We keep silent for the sake of the brotherhood. We may not want to speak up initially because we are afraid ofrejection by our peers,or ofdissension in the chapter; but in the end, after it's been discussed, the brothers will come around and respect us for speaking up. Acquaintance rape is not new to college campuses. Rapes have been occurring at fraternity parties for over 40 years. Women then were even less assertive than now, but they had two other defenses. One was environmental:They had separate dorms with parietal rules. The other was social: Most college men knew that most college women were not readily available sexually. What needs to be examined is why acquaintance rape is on the rise in an era when sexual license is generally accepted. If sexual liaisons are easy to arrange, why do men rape? And if women can say yes, why aren't they believed when they say no? Rape assumes that a man's yes prevails over a woman's no. It assumes that the pleasure is in overpowering rather than sharing; the violence is acceptable and masculine. Mixed signals are another element in acquaintance rape. The woman acts in friendly manner; the man interprets this friendliness as an invitation to have sex. "No" is heard as"maybe" and even a strong protest can be ignored under the delusion that women say "no" but mean "yes." Some men find it sexually exciting to have a woman struggle. If the woman protests only mildly he may think he is "persuading" her, not forcing her to have sex.(He may think the

Missouri chapter promotes rape awareness on campus Editor's Note:Partfour ofafour-part series titled, "From a Student's Perspective," this article examines one ofthe biggest threats to the fraternity world: date rape. The series also addressed alcohol abuse, racism and hazing. This article was written by Matt Basta,archon ofBeta Epsilon Chapter at the University ofMissouri. On August 28, 1989, a young woman left an all-Greek party unaware of what was about to happen to her. It was unthinkable. Two weeks later, another woman left a fraternity party with a man shejust met.They walked about two blocks from the house. Again, the unthinkable happened. Two _ different acts ofviolence.One very serious crime. Both women were raped. In the first rape,the woman was attacked by an unknown stalker. In the second instance,the woman was raped by someone she knew. . By mid-October of 1989,four incidents of rape had been reported on the University of Missouri-Columbia campus. The Beta Epsilon chapter of Pi Kappa Phi realized segnething had to be done. On October 21, the chapter announced at a full-scale press conference that the chapter had formed a Rape Awareness Task Force. The story made the front page in the three local newspapers and was covered in newspApers in St. Louis and Kansas City. It was the top story on two television stations in St. Louis and one of the top stories for the three local television stations. But more important than the media covereage the chapter received was the increased awareness brought about by our efforts. "We want to change attitudes about date rape,"chapter member Jeff McSpadden said. "We want to make it socially unacceptable. Even if we stop one rape, we've make progress." Chapter members worked out a fourpart plan. The first step was to meet with the
University Women's Center to educate ourselves on the magnitude ofthe problem.The statistics were alarming. We learned that date rape is a serious problem, not only on our campus but nation-wide: • One in four college woman has been the victim of rape or attempted rape; • 84% knew their attackers; • 57% of the attackers were dates; • One woman is raped every six minutes in the U.S. "I think it's crucial to have men talking to one another about rape," said Laura Hacguard, coordinator of the Women's Center. "I was pleased and encouraged to have them come to us." The second part of the plan was to distribute educational flyers and pamphlets directed to men on topics such as, "What Rape Is,""Why Women Don't Report Rape," and "Quick Facts on Rape." We handed out flyers every other day for three weeks. The third part of the plan was to establish an escort service on campus for the sorority community. We teamed up the Pi Beta Phi sorority and offered the service Sunday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m.Ifany Greek-lettered woman needed an escort from a class or the library, she could call the service. One Pi Phi and one Pi Kapp would escort her to her destination. Escorts wore letters and provided a code word to assure safety and confidentiality. "We definitely think it's a good idea, especially since it will be men and women running the service," said Pi Beta Phi President Carmen Apprill,noting that women feel more comfortable with another woman present. The final stage of the plan was to encourage more programming on campusabout rape. The chapter purchased a $225 film for the Woman's Center about rape that is used at all rape seminars. Response from the campus has been overwhelming. Coordinator of Greek Life Cathy Scroggs said,"I'm pleased to see they
Matt Basta(at podium)and chapter members conducting a press conrference in Beta Epsilon's chapter house
want to do something about it. The more fraternities we get involved, the better." "We stand behind it 100 percent," said Interfraternity Council President Jeff Garrett."I hope that other fraternities will follow Pi Kappa Phi's initiative for promoting rape awareness." Ninety percent of rapes occur because ofalcohol. Alcohol is not a legal or moral defense against a rape allegation. You and your partner are responsible for your actions. In the courts, the key to rape is consent. If a woman says no, she means no. Don't question it. Don't think she is saying no just to play "hard to get." Don't think she is saying no because she doesn't want you to believe she's a "slut." No means no. Beta Epsilon has committed itself to promoting rape awareness and abiding by the national Fraternity's policy on sexual abuse. We hope other chapters in the nation will realize the seriousness and urgency of this problem and strive to promote awareness among their brothers and on their campuses.

When a date becomes a crime Continued from page 2 "No" is heard as"maybe"and even a strong protest can be ignored under the delusion that women say "no" but mean "yes." Some men find it sexually exciting to have a woman struggle. If the woman protests only mildly he may think he is "persuading" her, not forcing her to have sex.(He may think the same if she protests vigorously.) A man may be thinking that the woman is playing hard to get. The potential for rape exists when two people do not have a clear understanding of each other's sexual intentions and expectations. The price for going out to dinner and a movie is not intercourse. Sex role stereotypes also play a role in acquaintance rape. Many people believe that men should be competitive and aggressive, and women yielding and passive. There are many misconceptions about male-female sexuality. Men are often trained to think in terms of "scoring," to treat sex as a test of prowess. No wonder that abusers think of themselves not as threatening but as attractive males making an offer that is too good to refuse; nor do acquaintance rapists think of their coercion as force. Attitudes about rape are developed at a relatively young age. A recent study of 1,700 students in grades six through nine exposes early misconceptions about rape. Fifty percent of the student body stated that a woman was asking to be raped if she dressed sexy. Fifty-one percent of the boys and 41 percent of the girls said that a man had the right to force a woman to kiss him,for a lot of money. They defined a lot of money to be $15. Fiftyone of the boys said that it was alright for a man to rape a woman he had for six months. The fraternal environment has often been labeled as a major contributor to the rape crisis. According to Bernice Sandler, Executive Director, Project on the Status and Education of Women:"Fraternities very often provide an atmosphere where sexual prowess, sexual activity, scoring is encouraged,permitted,reinforced. Some frats have posted on a bulletin board who scored with whom the night before." Fraternities offer young men structure, friendship, formality and ritual at a time in their lives when they are looking for just such guidance. This guidance, however, is often misdirected. Brothers' reinforcement of each other is stronger than the campus'or society's disapproval. Little sisters and sorority member are at high risk of becoming victims ofsexual assault for several reasons. The prescribed familial bond between these women and fraternity members and the assumed trust that often goes along with this bond. The nomenclature suggests family unity and safety. It is often the case the women's trust of fraternity brothers is taken advantage of. A primary myth surrounding this issue is that date or acquaintance rape is not a punishable crime.The fact is that rape,ofany sort, is a felony. Women who have been raped by an acquaintance have the same options as those raped by strangers.They can press criminal and/or civil charges against the man who raped them.d There are varying degrees of criminal sexual conduct laws. These include contact with specified parts of the body - even ifclothing covers those parts of the body. Sexual assault does no always include penetration. The burden of proof, as with all crime, lies with the victim. Alcohol and drugs are a factor in 90 percent of all rapes. Many victims say later that they drank too much to realize their predicament, until it was too late. But men should know that under any circumstances, sex without the other person's consent is considered rape. And drinking is no excuse. Although consent is defined in various ways by state laws,sobriety is an ingredient necessary to give consent. Attorney Ron Doleac states,"Consentfrom a drunk person doesn't count, because herjudgement is impaired by alcohol. Consent requires an informed deci-
sion about your conduct." In the state of Ohio,date/acquaintance rape is first degree felony, punishable by four to 25 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. In gang rape situations, the laws can be even tougher. In Michigan, if two or more perpetrators are involved in a forcible act of sexual penetration, the crime can be punishable by life imprisonment or any term of same ifshe protests vigorously.)A man may be thinking that the woman is playing hard to get. The potential for rape exists when two people do not have a clear understanding ofeach other's sexual intentions and expectations. The price for going out to dinner and a movie is not intercourse. Sex role stereotypes also play a role in years. The FBI states that rape, like most other crimes, only sees about a 2 percent ratio offalse charges. Without these laws the situation would be much worse. Consider a study done at UCLA where 35 percent of
college-aged men said they would violently rape if they knew they could get away with it. Among the skills college students need to know before they begin to cope with campus life is knowing how to handle sexual abuse. Unwelcome sexual attention - ranging from classroom intimidation and lewd sexist comments to gang rape - are increasing. Some of the incidents reported seem relatively petty: sexist graffiti,sexistjoking, mooning,male students explicitly commenting on the sexual attributes of women on campus. However petty, such actions are annoying and embarrassing and leave women feeling devalued,powerless and uncomfortable. Not to mention the fact this is defiantly conduct unbecoming a gentleman ofLambda Chi Alpha. Rape is not just a woman's issue, because the problem will not stop until the men stop raping.It is the men who are causing the crime, it is men who say it is alright to
reward aggressiveness. Men can have an effect on other men. They can find ways to make unacceptable the view that sex is cornpetition, an expression of power, and that a sexual assault is a score. This issue confronts every man and woman because it affects the quality of life for all of us. Rape is a crime of violence, no lust. Rape by strangers is paralleled by a rise in general violence in our society. The rise in date/acquaintance rape is said to have been accompanied by reports of physical abuse on dates. It's bad enough that one cannot walk home anymore without being escorted. Now they must be on guard even with people whom they know. The violence of our society has infected friendships between men and women.This is a very high price to pay. Story by Steven D. Blair, Associate Director qiChapterServiceslAlumniforLambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. Reprinted with permisionfrom Lambda Chi Alpha.
because ALL oppose Date Rape has nothing to do with the fraternity experience. It is the most blatant form of sexual harassment that demeans both men and women.
We, the men's general fraternities united in the National Interfraternity Conference, are dedicated and determined to deal with date rape. We stand united in our affirmation of basic standards of human behavior. We instill the principles of diligence, honor, integrity, virtue, duty and respect for human dignity.
Consider these facts: • A reported rape happens every six minutes in the United States.
• More than halfofthe rapes occur between people who have met before: so-called "date rapes." • Women are most vulnerablefor rape during thefirst year ofcollege and one in five will be the victim ofsexual assault by someone she knows during her college years. •In a 1985 study one in 12 college men admitted they hadforced— or tried toforce — a woman to have sex. • The same study reported that one in eight women on campus had been raped.

date rape! This is what we're doing about it:
• Fraternities are dedicated to developing healthy lifelong relationships built on mutual respect and high regard. The ideals of brotherhood demand respectfor human dignity —both male andfemale. • Fraternity members do not condone date rape. They condemn it. • Many high school students are sexually active when they enter college but have had little or no guidance on what is acceptable sexual behavior. Fraternities are providing a safe and attractive environmentfor young people. We help instill responsible attitudes that will affect their adult behaviorfor the rest oftheir lives.
Violation of our standards leads to swift and certain sanctions: ranging from directives to probation to suspension to expulsion — even to revocation of charter and dissolution of chapter. We're serious about Date Rape and we think you ought to know it. If you think you have to demonstrate your virility or prove your manhood through sexual harassment or forced sex, don't waste your time on fraternities. But if you're interested in finding out how the leaders of tomorrow can experience the joy of mature relationships with respect for individual dignity then write to us at the Fraternity Executives Association, 3901 W. 86th St, Suite 390, Indianapolis,IN 46268. We're in the business of developing leaders with integrity: brotherhood is an essential ingredient.

Sewell, Griffin remembered Continued from page 1 Ben Hill Griffin Jr. was born in Tiger Bay in 1910"during a tremendous hurricaine that cut through central Florida," he said in 1981. He donated nearly $15 million dollars to the University of Florida including a $10 million gift - the largest single gift in UF history.' Griffin was chairman of Alico, Inc., a company he built into a 120,000 acre domain from a 10-acre grove his father gave him as a wedding present. The company owns citrus, cattle and phosphate property. In February of this year, he was hospitalized for 13 days with a blood infection complicated by pneumonia. Alpha Epsilon's wealthiest alumnus was a philanthropist, environmentalist, former legislator, candidate for governor,and chief executive officer of family-owned Ben Hill Griffin, Inc., a major citrus processor in Frostproof. Joe Sewell,Omicron Chapter's most famous alumnus, got his break in the major leagues after another player was killed. At age 21, Sewell was rushed into the line-up of the Cleveland Indians during the 1920 pennant race after the Indians' regular shortstop became the only player in major league history to be killed during a game. Ray Chapman was hit in the head by a pitch thrown by Carl Mays of the New York Yankees and died shortly afterwards. That year,the Indians beat the Brooklyn Dodgers in the World Series. Sewell played 11 seasons with Cleveland, his best performance coming in 1923 when he batted .353 and drove in 109 runs both career highs. In 1931, he was traded to the New York Yankees. He still holds the record for"non-strikeouts." His 114 career strikeouts in 7,000 atbats averages out to one strikeout every 16 games,or 63 at-bats. He struck out only four times in each oftwo seasons(155 games one year; 153 the other) and only three times another season (120 games). He played 115 straight games without striking out in 1929. Sewell batted .312 for his 14-majorleague-season career - once doing .352 - and batted over.300 in 10 seasons. He had 2,226 career hits. About 1,500 of those hits came from a single bat, "Black Betsy," his lone game bat for his last 10 or 1 1 seasons. In 1933 Sewell retired from the major leagues,returning to his alma mater to coach Bama baseball. There he compiled a 114-99 record in seven seasons. He retired from coaching at age 70. A member of the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame and the Ohio Hall of Fame,Sewell was born in Titus, Ala. While at the University of Alabama, Sewell played baseball and football,guiding the school's baseball team to four conference titles before joining the minor league New Orleans Pelicans. He was initiated as Omicron's 63rd member on May 12, 1920, and became a member of the Fraternity's Hall of Fame in 1979 at the 75th Anniversary Supreme Chapter, held in Charleston, S.C. Many alumni may remember him from his famous breakfast remarks at the Charleston Supreme Chapter. The loss of Joe Sewell and Ben Hill Griffin Jr. was deeply felt by Pi Kappa Phi undergraduates and alumni. Sewell and Griffin will be remembered as a men who rarely struck in baseball or in I ife.

chaptEr spotlight Penn State makes history for cancer during dance At the Alpha Mu chapter, they take the Fraternity's slogan,"Strong Enough to Care" to heart. The 60 men of the Penn State Chapter, along with the sisters of Alpha Chi Omega, raised $130,000 for children with cancer. Each person raised over an average of over $1,000. A tradition for a number of years, this effort has become an all-consuming passion for everyone in the chapter, especially during three weeks in February. This fund-raising effort is part of the I nterfraternity Council/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, and the benefits go to the Four Diamonds Fund for children with cancer at the Hershey Medical Center in Pennsylvania. A few months before the marathon, the Carruthers family, who receives help from the fund, visited the Pi Kapp house.They explained the degree to which the monetary and psychological support aids the whole family. They also explained what it is like to have cancer. "It is at this moment that raising money seems not so much of a nice thing for us to do, but a duty to help those who aren't as lucky as we are," Historian Andrew Wallace said. The way the fund-raising works is simple. Any group can enter two dancers to whom the money can be pledged or donated.
Three weeks before the event, these groups start to raise money. At Alpha Mu, this means canning. Almost none of the money raised comes from corporations. The Pi Kapps hit the road on Feb. 24. Standing on street corners from as early as four in the morning until as late as seven in the evening,the brothers collected coins and dollar bills from passing motorists all along the East Coast.Despite terribly cold weather, rain, wind, and unfriendly policemen, they were able to amass their record-breaking total. For 16 consecutive days there was someone raising money for cancer almost 24 hours a day. Classes were missed and sleep became optional. "It was at these times when we could look back at the day when the Carruthers family came to speak, and this made canning seem a whole lot easier," Wallace said. There were many outstanding individuals who comprised the backbone of their effort. The dancers stayed awake and on their feet for 48 hours during the actual marathon weekend of Feb. 16-17. Some of the individual money raisers collected over $2,700. However, Gary Stiefel and Paul Fedor held the group together as the marathon chairmen. "If you have ever stood in the rain and wind, wearing a soaking sweatshirt that

weighs a ton, while dodging careless motorists at the same time, and trying to keep a cheerful face - you understand canning," Wallace said. Stiefel and Fedor motivated the members when they were down and encouraged them to do well. They were on the go endlessly during the weeks before the marathon - organizing road trips,counting money,and making an infinite number of phone calls to
coordinate the entire event. During the 1990Penn State Dance Marathon, over $671,000 was raised by Greeks who comprise a small minority on campus. The Greeks had sacrificed classes and sleep for a good cause. "When the marathon was over and our total was announced, I saw Gary and Paul hugging and crying. I knew, as we all did, that we had saved lives," Wallace said.
UNC-Greensboro coaches basketball to prevent drug abuse Every Saturday morning this spring, the brothers at Epsilon Iota-UNC-Greensboro would hit the courts for some hoops. They weren't players.They were the coaches. The brothers began a venture in conjunction with the Greensboro Police Department and the Greensboro Housing Authority to coach youth basketball teams in economically depressed areas. Pi Kapps managed four out of the six teams for 10 weeks. They provided the children, ranging in ages from seven to 12, with a positive alternative to the drug areas which notoriously are located in public housing. Each team was staffed with at least two coaches, and in most cases the teams had at least three. Epsilon Iota has supported the youth sports program since its inception. On Jan. 27, 1990, the league's "Media Day" featured the brothers who were present to support the police department, housing authority, and most importantly, the children. Epsilon Iota initiate and U.S. Congressman Howard Coble tossed the opening jump ball. During the season, the brothers prac-

When game time arrived, they were bused by the Salvation Army Boys Club to various locations around the city. They even offered Greens-
boro Policeman Andy Solomon with an alumni bid for his work with the chapter. "I don't think anyone really got tired of coaching. I certainly know I didn't," Historian Paul Brown said. Brown had been coach-
ing youth and people with disabilities for five years. When the regular season was over, the kids participated in a single-elimination tournament. The children in the league were individuals who had little or no experience playing any kind oforganized sports. They were in need of basic skills,rules,and sportsmanship. The brothers of Epsilon Iota provided these basic needs and served as positive role models and a big brother type figure, while stressing the importance of higher education. The police department and the housing authority created the program. Local businesses also donated money to support the league. "Through the tears ofdefeat and smiles of victory, there is renewed meaning in the word 'Brotherhood',"said Chapter Advisor Steven Hall. Hall is an alumnus from the Delta Lamba-UNC-Charlotte chapter and a member of the Greensboro Police. He first told the chapter of the new program and encouraged them to participate.
East Carolina U. enters Phase II to complete dream On Feb.24, 1990,at the 27th Founder's Day Celebration for the East Carolina University chapter, Phase II of its master plan for a new home was officially announced and launched. Although the housing corporation will not begin soliciting funds from alumni until all plans are finalized, the housing corporation structure functioned more like a proactive board, and alumni involvement in the chapter increased. Phase II will consist of the construction of a great hall, an office for the archon, a formal entry way,storage space for chapter regalia,a TV room and four more bedrooms. Two years earlier, a new house was built. Since that time, the chapter grew by leaps and bounds and poised itselfto assume a place with the strong chapters in the na-

had become a reality. The dedication ceremony at the chapter's 26th anniversary was a time to celebrate. Many alumni attended and shared in the achievement. Many could not attend because of a terrible ice storm that gripped eastern North Carolina. When it came time to cut the ribbon, a truly symbolic event occurred. In the previous semester, the chapter had initiated its 500th Beta Phi member. To commemorate the ribbon cutting, Beta Phi's first initiate, Dan Ray,and Keith Zito, Beta Phi #500, cut the ribbon. "We feel that with events like Homecoming, Founder's Day and the Beta Phi Golf Tournament,all of the our goals can be accomplished." Smith said. The next goal is Phase II.

Membership is by invitation. A Foundation Fellow Program - Recognizes alumni who contribute at least $500 per year. The Distinguished Foundation Fellow programs honor those men who contribute at least $1,000 per year. Total giving to the Foundation,inclusive ofthe Annual Appeal was $207,762 in 1989. Does the Foundation acceptcorporate matching gifts? Yes. Each year the Foundation receives a number of gifts which are matched by the donor's employer. Please check with the Human Resources Department at your place of work to see if a matching gift program exists. Whatis the relationship between the Foundation and the Fraternity's national service project,PUSH? The Foundation and PUSH are separate legal entities with separate Boards of Trustees. The Foundation receives its primary support from alumni of the Fraternity while PUSH receives the majority of its funds
from student fund-raising programs. The Foundation financially underwrites the educational programs of the Fraternity while PUSH supports a broad array ofprograms to assist the severely handicapped. Students gain a real life understanding of those in need through their participation in and support of PUSH programs. Is there a wayfor the Foundation to help my chapter? Yes. Individual chapter scholarship funds have been established for 15 chapters. Alumni may designate their gifts to these individual funds with the income used to support educational programs at their chapter. The largest chapter fund is for the Alpha Epsilon Chapter-University of Florida. Alumni have contributed $167,000 to support educational programs for this outstanding chapter. The expansion of the chapter scholarship fund roster is a prime objective of the Foundation in the '90s. Whatdoes thefuture holdfor the Foundation? Pi Kappa Phi now encompasses 124 chapters, 17 colonies, and over 7,000 student members. The Foundation must have $2 million dollars in assets to fund the existing educational programs from income. Alumni have loyally supported the Foundation's fund-raising programs and the objective is within our reach. Your support ofthe Pi Kappa Phi Foundation is a wise investment in the future of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity.

push Pi Kapps build Ind.'s first fully-accessible park Thanks to Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, the state of Indiana has its first "fully-accessible" public park where children of all abilities can play and interact with others. The second "PUSH Place" was constructed in Bloomington, home of Alpha Psi Chapter-Indiana University, on April 7-8. Fifty-one Pi Kapps traveled to Bloomington from as far away as New Jersey and North Carolina to join 50 Alpha Psi Chapter members for the two-day "Give-A-PUSH Weekend." They cleared nearly a mile and a half of nature trails - which will be paved for wheelchair-users - and constructed a dozen accessible picnic tables, a huge shelter, an adaptive playground and raised gardening planters - for those who can't bend over to garden. Collegiates found it particularly rewarding that they not only raised the money for the project back at their chapters, but that they
had the opportunity to do the actual building. The project was a joint effort between People Understanding the Severely Handicapped and Bloomington's Parks and Recreation Department. PUSH organized the Pi Kapp work force and contributed a $22,000 grant to supplement the city's funding. Parks Director Frank Ragan was so astounded by the determination of the Pi Kapp workers that he accepted an invitation to become an alumnus initiate. He became Alpha Psi's 664th member on April 28. Bloomington Mayor Tomilea Allison joined National Vice President Phil Summers in praising the work of the hard-working collegiates. "You are living proof of what can happen when students put their energy to work to benefit their community," Allison said. Chapters represented in Bloomington were: Upsilon-University of Illinois, PsiCornell University, Alpha Kappa-University of Michigan,Alpha Omicron-Iowa State
University, Alpha Phi-Illinois Institute of Technology, Alpha Psi-Indiana University, Beta Epsilon-University of Missouri, Delta Eta-Morehead State University, Epsilon Beta-Grand Valley State College, Epsilon Mu-Bradley University,Zeta Kappa-Stockton State University,and the associate chapters at Queens College and IUPUI. The first Give-APUSH Weekend, held in October in Belmont, N.C., resulted in a renovated playground at Holy Angels. Two chapters that attended the Belmont weekend, Stockton State and Queens College, journeyed more than 15 hours each to attend the Bloomington weekend. Both have pledged to participate in the next Give-A-PUSH Weekend, to be held in Clearwater, Fla., in September.
Kevin Katz (above), Zeta KappaStockton State, provided the muscle needed to clear the nature trails. Adaptive picnic tables were assembled by Indiana's Brett Baltz (left), Steve Garner, Phil Saltzman and Archon Brook Bollinger.
Creativity is key to chapter PUSH events Talk about beautifying the city... Congrats to the men of Nu Chapter-University of Nebraska, for tackling more than 500cars and raising more than $2,500 in their annual"free car wash."In addition to all the good they've done for the disabled, they improved their own social lives by pairing with Chi Omega sorority for the fund-raiser.
Associate Power... Pi Kappa Phi's associate chapters have been absolutely amazing for PUSH this year! Queens College associates raised more than $1,800 with their "Pi Kapp Prison" in March. Psi Chapter-Cornell University(since re-chartered)raised over $2,500 with toll-roads in the Ithaca area. Albright College associates have sent in over$2,700. And Colorado State and Towson State associate chapters have each raised more than $1,000 each. Way to go!
It's never too cold to PUSH... It takes a lot more than a cold day to slow down the men of Zeta Kappa ChapterStockton State University, who win the award for sustaining the most severe weather conditions on behalf of the disabled! In February, they pushed a wheelchair around their athletic track in below
zero temperatures. "We set up a PUSH camp," said Mike Raymond, PUSH Chairman. "Everyone wanted to be out there, so we got generators and portable heaters going. It was a great brotherhood event." When they finished, PUSH had another $2,000, and not a single case of frostbite!
Aggies make'horseplay'possible... The newly re-chartered Delta Omega Chapter-Texas A&M hasn't been "horsing around." Their frequent volunteer efforts at the Brenham State School have been rewarded with a PUSH Partnership Grant to purchase adaptive saddle equipment which will be used in the center's equestrian program. Now children with special needs can ride horses!
Smash a few skulls, break a few teeth, help the disabled... The men at Epsilon Mu Chapter-Bradley University have been helping out the school's hockey team this year by hawking programs for PUSH! More than $1,000 has come from those efforts.
Pump it up, Man... In the true California spirit, the men of Zeta Mu Chapter-California State University-Northridge held a "PUSH BodyBuilding Classic" with Gold's Gym. A crowd of students cheered as fraternity men and sorority women flexed before celebrity judges (the Pi Kapps placed well, by the way). The event raised over $3,500 for PUSH.
PUSH America invites alumni participation Entering its third year,the PUSH America project is one of the most outstanding projects of PUSH and Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. This year's trip will involve 19 cyclists and five crewmen from 18 colleges and universities. The trip will take 55 days and cover 11 states. Along the way,the cyclists will have the chance to meet hundreds of well-wishers. Visits from Pi Kapp alumni have a special motivating effect on the riders. If you would like to help prepare a special welcome for the team in your city, or if you would simply enjoy sharing a meal with them,please call Sally Schafer,PUSH's director of development, at (704)522-7874.

fortIm Lasorda is 'proud to walk down any street' Continued from page 1 America,or any place in the world, with my head up high - proud that I am a member of Pi Kappa Phi," he said during a speech after his ritual of initiation. Lasorda became the Los Angeles Dodgers manager on Sept. 29, 1976, when Walter Alston announced his retirement after 23 years as manager. He is entering his 40th year with the organization,serving 11 years as player,four years as a scout,eight years as a minor league manager and four years as a Dodger coach. Considered the"dean" of major league managers for consecutive service with one
team, he trails only two Dodger managers in length of service and wins as manager Walter Alston and Wilbert Robinson. In 1988,Lasorda guided the Dodgers to the World Championship over the heavily favored Oakland A's four games to one. Lasorda was named National League Manager of the Year by the Baseball Writer's Asociation of America and Baseball America, and Co-Manager of the Year by The Spoiling News. He also captured a World Championship in 1981 including the AP Manager of the Year for leading the Dodgers to the team's first title since 1965. As the Dodger
Skipper,he also garnered four N.L. pennants and six Western Division titles. In Lasorda's early baseball career, he once struck out 25 batters in a 15-inning game for the Schenectady Blue Jays over Amsterdam in 1948. He also pitched four gamesfor the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers,which was the first Dodger team ever to win a World Championship. Lasorda has a lifetime major league coaching record of 1,022-874, which ranks 20th on the all-time list. He lives in Fullerton, Calif., with his wife Joan and has two grown children,Laura and Tom Jr.

Supreme Chapter changed With Pi Kapp College scheduled for Aug. 1-5, 1990, brothers expect Supreme Chapter to follow the next year. However, during its meeting in May,the National Council voted to move the Supreme Chapter back a year. This will allow the Fraternity to celebrate the centennial anniversary during the Supreme Chapter in 2004 in Charleston, S.C. Brothers will attend the next Supreme

Pi Kapp College will be held in 1991 with a site to be announced at a later date. Supreme Chapter in the past has been changed to allow anniversaries to fall during Supreme Chapter years. It was changed in 1979 for the 75th anniversary.
PUSH Director of Development Sally Schafer gives a presentation on PUSH at the Super Conclave held in Atlanta, Ga., Feb. 10.
Conclaves feature the Drifters, singing & jokes Springtime sees the birth of new life and new ideas. Pi Kapps across the nation met at the annual conclaves to discuss new ideas. The SuperConclave sponsored by Areas HMI and V featured the initiation ofDodger Manager Tommy Lasorda. The conclave was held in Atlanta on Feb 9-10. Nearly 500 brothers from Florida,Georgia,South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama attended the event. Area I Governor Jim Krucher reports that his area had a record-breaking conclave at Zeta Kappa-Stockton State College in New Jersey Jan. 26-28. Nineteen of the 24 chapters which included 242 brothers from New Jersey,New York,Pennsylvania,West Virginia and Maryland participated. Upsilon-Illinois hosted the Area IV conclave Jan. 27-28 led by Governor Mark Jacobs.Twelve ofthe 13chapters in the area attended including brothers from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky and Ohio. Omega-Purdue and Alpha Psi-Indiana led the attendance with 90 total brothers participating. In Area VI,Delta Chi-Kansas St.hosted 11 chapters including two associate colonies from Colorado and Colorado St. Feb. 16-18. Area Governor John Andrews led
Brother reflects on National Presidents After casually glancing at the faces pictured on the first page of the Winter 1990 issue of the Star and Lamp,I realized that I had actually knew and had met 15, if not 16, of our National Presidents. I don't think this is a particularly remarkable fact, but I was amazed that out of our 27 presidents of Pi Kappa Phi, I have been fortunate enough to have met and have gotten to know more than half of them. The one person I am not quite sure I actually met is Theron Houser, al-
though it is possible since I attended the Philadelphia Supreme Chapter Letters meeting in 1956 (my first)as a student delegate, which was the last he served as National President. All of these men are distinguished Pi Kapps, and it has been a privilege for me to have met them, and in some instances, to have the opportunity of working with them. -Richard G. Anderson
nearly 100 brothers from Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska,Iowa,Colorado and North Dakota in various sessions. Alpha Omicron-Iowa State and Beta Epsilon-Missouri gave special presentations on FIPG and promoting a positive campus image. On Feb. 2-4, Delta Psi-Texas-Arlingsponsored the Area VII conclave. Sevton from Texas, Oklahoma, Louenty brothers isiana and Arkansas attended. Every chapter except one participated. On the last night, the brothers took two buses to the Dallas Westend Marketplace for some late night exploring of the town. In an unsual one affair, Xi-Roanoke welcomed 110 brothers from Virginia and West Virginia for the Area IX conclave. Since the chapter is so centrally located, the conclave was held in one day with all 16 chapters except one participating. The conclave concluded with a joke session for the best joke, and a dinner featuring live music from the Drifters. On the West coast, Zeta Lambda-Cal. State-Chico hosted the Area X conclave Feb. 16-18. Eight chapters totaling 70 brothers from California, Oregon and Washington attended the event. Epsilon Nu-Sacramento St. won a singing competition which was videotaped for national competition.
'PUSH Kids' praised Our class enjoyed your puppet show. The show allowed the children an opportunity to learn ofother children's abilities. As a result, I have seen an awareness and a gentleness displayed toward other children. Even in their conversations, the children show a greater awareness. I think Pi Kappa Phi should be commended for their excellent work. -Jean McClure Paw Creek Elem.,Charlotte,NC
