DARE TO PREPARE FOR
FUTURE Roanoke College hosts its final Pi Kapp College Pi Kapps41Roanoke College adieu after it held its last Pi Kapp College after 23 years. The college has hosted the event 13 times. But, before students and alumni departed,they were challenged to dare to prepare for the future. Nearly 400 students made their pilgrimage east to Salem, Va., on August 1, 1990, to learn the latest developments in the fraternity world, to honor those students who excelled and to share new ideas. The first evening kicked off with the opening celebration featuring the arrival of the PUSH America '90 Team. They made a quick stop en route to their final destination in Washington,D.C.three days later. The auditorium filled with brotherhood as the team received an electrifying standing ovation. The evening concluded with Will Keim's entertaining address on leadership in the 21st century. The topic of rush highlighted August 2 as well as sessions on risk management and alcohol awareness. Will Keim amused the audience again with his infamous speech on "Demythologizing Animal House." The
evening concluded with University of South Carolina's "RisQue Business" educating students on social issues facing today's college student and Hypnotist Dan Lepore sending students into deep thought with a comic twist. August 3 welcomed discussion on-member education, leadership breakout sessions and Dr. Perry Buffington. "Dr. Buff'explained the psychology of leadership. Students also had the opportunity to meet with their respective Area Governors and Leadership Consultant. The evening came to an end with the Pi Kapp Talent and Skit Night. Students began August 4 with various team building games which culminated in an earth ball rugby tournament (the "South" topped the "North" 1-0). National President
Stephen DePalma and National Vice President Phil Summers gave the annual State of Pi Kappa Phi Address stressing scholarship and involvement within the Fraternity. Pi Kapp College ended with the initiation of Comedian Todd Yohn on August 5 and the National Council's presentation of the major awards(see page 6). Actor and alumnus Maury Covington gave a dramatic portrayal of L. Harry Mixson looking on the Fraternity in the past, present and future to bring the ceremonies to a close. Pi Kapps can look forward to another exciting Pi Kapp College next year in Charleston in preparation for the 43rd Supreme Chapter in Florida in 1992.
A "funny" thing happened on the way to initiation Voted "Best Young Comedian" last year, Todd Yohn traveled to Pi Kapp College for the first time. He left as a new brother of Pi Kappa Phi. Performing for Epsilon Iota-UNC-Greensboro's annual party for eight years now,Yohn was invited by the chapter to become an alumnus initiate. He was to be initiated in December of 1989, but scheduling conflicts pushed the event to Pi Kapp College. On August 5, Yohn was the model initiate during the model ritual. Nearly 250 Pi Kapps watched the ceremony. "I had been associated with Pi Kapps for so long," Yohn said."It was something that needed to be done." Yohn performed the night before for 90 minutes leaving the brothers in cramps from laughter. Yohn said his performance for Pi Kapp College was like "icing on the cake" for him. "It was the thrill of a lifetime," he added. "I felt like 1 was 17 again. I will take this with me for the rest of my life." Yohn resides in Rural Hall, N.C., with his wife who is expecting a baby around New Year's Eve.

"Strong Enough to Care"
The Early Bird (indeed) Gets the Worm It not too early for Pi Kapps graduating next spring to begin serious job-hunting activities! At best, 1991 campus recruiting by major corporations will be "status quo", but Pi Kapps who take specific job-hunting initiatives now will likely graduate with jobs, while those who delay will find little to be encouraged about. There are twelve positive steps that members of the Class of'91 can take now that will significantly improve their chances of finding the right position, even in a tighter-than-normal recruiting market: 1. DEFINE YOUR JOB-SEEKING OBJECTIVE AND PREPARE YOUR RESUME AROUND THAT OBJECTIVE Compani s •re people who know what they want, not the undecide . Moreover, your resume should feature specific accomplishments found in prior work experiences, internships, campus activities, and community service. 2. DEVOTE DEDICATED TIME EACH WEEK TO RESEARCHING COMPANIES THAT CAN UTILIZE YOUR SPECIFIC CREDENTIALS AND TALENTS. Gather information from any potentially ul source (e.g., parents, parents of friends and Pi .se • brothers, professors, hometown and college community contacts, internship sponsors, nearby offices of major companies, the Placement Office Library, the public library, appropriate Chambers of Commerce, Pi Kapp alumni, last years seniors, etc.) 3. DON'T OVERLOOK COMPANIES THAT MAY HAVE CURTAILED SOME ON-CAMPUS RECRUITIN Thrc?mpanies may still be hiring! Contact their College Relations Manager or corporate personnel department directly.
4. EXPAND YOUR NETWORK OF CONTACTS AND DELIBERATELY WORK THROUGH THEM. Talk to r friends, last year's seniors, your professors, college nistrators, your family members,etc., for new ideas and new company leads. If someone can facilitate a personal introduction or referral for you, you'll be way ahead in the race. 5. INVESTIGATE EARLY WHICH COMPANIES ARE RECRUITING ON YOUR CAMPUS. Try to see as many appropriate c representatives as possible in the fall (and, of cou the spring). If you can't see a particular company representative and the opportunity still appeals to you, get the representative's name, title, and address and write to him/her directly. 6. DON'T OVERLOOK SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZE COMPA As many 1 corporate organizations continue to downsize and tri eir professional employment ranks,small to medium size companies may actually be better targets. Trade journals and publications from the many professional societies (e.g., ASME,AIIE, NAA,ASCE,etc.) will help you locate these organizations. 7. CULTIVATE ALUMNI CONTACTS AND SEEK POTENTIAL LEADS FRO EM. Often, these individuals ca of real value to you. They may not be able to give u a job (and a job from them shouldn't be your primary expectation), but their advice is priceless. 8. ACQUIRE AND POLISH YOUR INTERVIEWING SKILLS. Companies seek irlals who can effectively communicate about their alhadhac, extra-curricular, and work related experiences. Practice interviewing and, if possible,
NIC adopts values and ethics statement In an effort to lessen the disparity between fraternity ideals and individual behavior and to personalize these ideals in the daily undergraduate experience, the following Basic Expectations of fraternity membership have established by the National Interfraternity Conference: abuse nor tolerate the abuse of property.

IX I will challenge all my fraternity members/brothers to abide by these fraternal expectations and will confront those who violate them.

Brother deals with date rape allegations Nightmare continues for victim and brother A Pi Kapp brother awaits his fate as he comes to grips with accusations that he date raped someone. Because of the nature of the topic, the name of the accused brother and his chapter has been withheld to protect his identity. On December 2, 1989, between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m., a woman entered a party at the chapter house and consumed alcohol. While at the party, she met the brother and eventually went upstairs to his room and engaged in sexual activity with him. On the morning of January 26, 1990, police officers arrested the brother on charges of rape, unlawful imprisonment and illegal restraint. Later that day,the chapter advisor and Greek advisor met with the chapter to discuss the incident, civil and criminal issues, and potential public relations issues. On February 2, 1990, a second woman told the police she had been raped by the same brother a year before. On April 26, 1990,the District Attorney's office requested to see the ritual books. The chapter refused. The D.A. informed them that they would be subpoenaed. The chapter sent their ritual books to Charlotte via registered mail. Every chapter in the state also sent their ritual books to the Administrative Office. From April 26 to May 11, 1990, members of the District Attorney's office remained outside the chapter house and questioned brothers who were coming and going to class. In May,the brother finally went to trial. When the testimony was all over, the case ended in a "mistrial" which means the jury could not unanimously decide innocent or guilty. The brother faces a new trial next month. Chapters interested in beginning educational date rape programming on your campus should contact the Director of Communications Matt Basta for details about the "Developing a Date Rape Program."

alumniante' Iowa State alum lands influential position The National Multi-Housing Council (NMHC) elected Alpha Omicron-Iowa State's Kelley Bergstrom chairman of the board January 11, 1990, at its annual meeting in New Orleans. The Washington, D.C. based NMHC consists of 250 of the nation's largest residential property management, land development investment banking,insurance and pension fund advising,law,accounting and real estate syndication firms. _Bergstrom said the key issue for NMHC in the '90s will be the fight against restrictive governmental policies which make it difficult to provide affordable apartment housing for the low and moderate income
population. The council helps shape legislation by testifying before key congressional committees,providing expert witnesses,sponsoring economic studies and lobbying through its political action committees. The NMHC is small, however it does offer a substantial voice to Congress. Bergstrom said many Congressmen will contact the NMHC to seek positions on certain issues. Bergstrom, AO #386, is also the president of JMB Properties Company based in Chicago. The Fraternity honored Bergstrom with the "Mr. Pi Kappa Phi" award in 1987.

New Area Governor prepares to serve his chapters Xi Chapter from Roanoke College offered Pi Kappa Phi another leader as Allen Woody became the new Area Governor for Area IX. Woody graduated from Roanoke in 1970. He now is president and owner of SPM Corp., a company involved in the recovery of precious metals such as gold and silver from scrap sources. "Over twenty years after graduation, many of my closest friends and business associates are also my brothers," Woody said. "My love and appreciation for our Fraternity grows stronger with each passing day."
Woody lives in Roanoke with his wife and three children. He is a founding member of the Xi Alumni Association and the Xi Housing Corporation. Xi Chapter also awarded Woody the Outstanding Brother and Alumni Awards. Woody recently completed the first Roanoke College Management Institute course - a comprehensive program covering issues of relevance to today's business leaders from personnel to third world debt. Pi Kapps might know his brother Dudley who currently serves on the PUSH Board of Directors.

"Mr. Tech" leaves mark on all who knew him He was known as an "instructor, administrator, coach, mentor and friend." It is estimated that he came in contact with nearly 20,000 Georgia Tech students. He was once called "the most beloved man at Georgia Tech." On April 21,George Griffin died at the age of 93. With him, he left seven decades of memories at his alma mater of the Ramblin' Wreck. Born on Oct. 9, 1896, in Savannah, Ga., Griffin enrolled at Tech in 1914 after serving as an ensign in the U.S. Navy during World War I. Earning his bachelor's degree in civil engineering in 1922, Griffin finally earned his master's degree in 1957 in industrial management. As a Pi Kapp,Griffin also was a memberof Omicron Delta Kappa as well as serving as president of the sophomore and junior classes. He also played on the cross country, track and football teams. Griffin played as a reserve fullback under coach John Heisman and was the last surviving member of the 1916 team that defeated Cumberland College 220-0. He scored two touchdowns in football's most lopsided victory. However, Griffin's love for Tech continued as he would soon work his way up the administrative ladder leaving his mark at every step. In 1930,Griffin became the assistant dean of students while also guiding the tennis team to a 22-1 record. At the same time, he would become the new track coach for the next 22 years. During the next 16 years, Griffin traveled the country organizing over a dozen alumni groups in several states and building an impeccable reputation. In 1946, Georgia Tech named Griffin the new dean of men(now dean of student affairs). For 18 years, he worked for the students and created many new programs. His policy was "to never doubt the word of a student,even the fishiest story." During this period, Griffin guided the cross country team to 10 Southern and Southeastern conference titles. He retired from coaching in 1972. During his reign of dean of students, Dean Griffin started an emergency loan fund with $25 donated by a student grateful for the financial help Griffin once had given him. Today, this fund continues to grow as the Griffin Hip Pocket Fund to provide students with immediate cash to get them through emergency situations. Dean Griffin is enshrined in the Georgia Tech Hall of Fame as well as the Georgia Hall of Fame. The George C. Griffin Track was dedicated in 1984. It is considered one of the most finest facilities of its kind in the country. Griffin is survived by his two sons, seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Republican leaves chairmanship to take post with the Army After serving as Chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party, Van D. Hipp became the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army. Hipp will help gather vital information on operations concerning the United States Army. In 1987, Hipp at the age of 26, became the youngest person ever elected to head a state party in the nation. During his tenure, republican representation increased on all levels of government. He helped add II new Republicans into South Carolina's Congress. Hipp also worked to bring "grass roots" politics back and increased voter registration. Hipp was the only state party chairman in the nation to address the National Republican Convention in 1988. He also was a member of the 1988 Presidential Electoral College. Jack Kemp called Hipp "the best State Chairman in America." He earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Wofford-Zeta #598, and then earned his J.D. from the University of South Carolina School of Law.
Howell helps guide us into 21st century with new technology Bringing"a unique blend of talent and leadership," Jack D. Howell was named the new deputy director of the Federal Aviation Administration Technical Center. Howell will co-manage a work force of 2,000 and will oversee the development of the national airspace sustem plan, the FAA's $15.8 billion plan to automate the entire air traffic control system. Before taking his new position, Howell worked at the Technical Center for Eastern Air Lines, Inc., in Miami. He was a first officer serving as co-pilot on the L-1011 airliner. Howell also has been executive central air safety chairman for the Air Line Pilots Association, where he headed all of ALPA's air safety efforts. He graduated from the University of Florida-Alpha Epsilon # 671 with a bachelor's degree in aeronautical engineering. He later earned his master's degree in flight transportation from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass.
Ex-Reagan aide becomes Defense liaison Thomas Carter became the new Department of Defense designee to be the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Legislative Affairs. Carter will be the principal liaison between the Department of Defense and the Senate on issues of national defense. Carter served as an assistant to Senate Republican Leader Bob Dole before assuming his job with the Department of Defense. He helped Dole by providing information on such legislative issues as defense, foreign policy and veterans' affairs. In 1984, Carter was selected as the Air Force Aide
to President Reagan. He was responsible for Presidential emergency actions 24 hours a day while carrying the emergency satchel or "football." He considered it "an honor of being on duty with President Reagan when the President was reelected and re-inaugurated." He graduated from Memphis State-Gamma Delta #98 as a distinguished AFROTC graduate in 1974. He completed pilot training at Craig AFB in Alabama and later was certified as instructor pilot at Charleston AFB, South Carolina. He is married to his wife Lindy with two children Kathryn and William.
Inventor of first jet airliner prototype dies at 79 Considered by some as an humanitarian, most people remember Maynard Pennell as the man who sparked the development of America's first jet airliner. A native of Skowhegan, Maine,Pennell traveled west to Seattle where he eventually spent the rest of his life. Graduating from the University of Washington-Alpha Delta #126 in 1931 with honors in aeronautical engineering,Pennelljoined Boeing Airline Company in 1942. He was a member ofAlpha Delta Chapter. Pennell worked for Boeing for 34 years. Pennell's visions helped him climb the corporate ladder leaving his mark at each rung. In 1946,as head ofcommercial project development, he began studies which determined the feasibility ofcommercial jet transports. Pennell was the senior project engineer for the nation's first jet transport, the Boeing 707 prototype. He later directed the Boeing concept development for the C-5A military transport proposal and was manager of the company's Supersonic Transport proposal team. He retired in 1974. On October 11, 1989, the Boeing Company established the Maynard L. Pennell Professorship in Structural Analysis at the University of Washington College of Engineering. The professorship is funded through a gift of the Boeing Company. The first recepient was Dr. Albert S. Kobayashi.

National President's Board welcomes Circle supports newest member Foundation As part of an effort to help students become better alumni upon graduation,the Foundation created the National President's Circle. The response has been overwhelming. Since May, 138 students have signed up contributing $2,205 to the Foundation. To enter this elite group,students must hold a leadership position within the chapter and attend either a Supreme Chapter or a Pi Kapp Colllege or a leadership conference. Students pay $15 each year they are in school and commit to pay $50 every year after graduation. The student also receives a certificate as well as a special newsletter from National President Stephen DePalma giving students the inside track on the latest news in the Fraternity. DePalma and Foundation Vice President Ted Scharfenstein created the program. "We are a little taken by the response of this program," Scharfenstein said. "We are beginning to see students really want to commit themselves to our Fraternity. It's great." DePalma says he will match all contributions given to the President's Circle by December 31, 1990. At Pi Kapp College, DePalma presented a check for $1,820 at a special luncheon for the President's Circle members.
Pi Kappa Phi Hall of Famer Cartha "Deke" DeLoach joined the Foundation Board of Trustees in February. DeLoach's strong governmental and business sense adds a new dynamic to the board. DeLoach entered the Hall of Fame at the 42nd Supreme Chapter in Washington last summer. DeLoach's distinguished career includes 28 years of service with the FBI serving at one point as assistant director, vice president of corporate affairs for Pepsico, Inc., assisting in the supervision of 11 different companies from Pepsi-Cola to Frito-Lay to Taco Bell, and currently chairman of the J. Edgar Hoover Foundation. The FBI has offered the directorship twice, but DeLoach has chosen to remain incorporate life for financial and family reasons. DeLoach graduated from Stetson University and then the Stetson Law School. He was initiated into Chi Chapter in 1941 serving as archon and treasurer and named "Most All Around Student." His awards include the American Legion "Man of the Year" for 1964 and four gold medals from the Freedoms Foundation for outstanding civic service. The board welcomes "Deke" and his knowledge.
Reach out ... and touch the alumni For some time Pi Kappa Phi has relied on direct mail to solicit contributions from alumni. However,this cost effective way of reaching alumni had its limitations. In fact, the number of alumni responding to the Annual Appeal trended downward while the amount contributed slightly rose each year. In all, the Foundation had a moderately successful, but flat fund-raising program. Last December a commitment was made to combine the best features of direct mail with a pilot telephone solicitation program. This fully coordinated program started with two letters mailed to the entire membership and then telephone calls made to 8,890 alumni from 35 chapters. The firm selected for the telephone solicitation was Telecom*USA of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Telecom*USA is a leader in the telecommunications and solicitation field with many colleges and universities among their clients. The program ran for six weeks with 1,077 men pledging $44,187. Of equal importance to the money raised was the information collected about our alumni. Pi Kappa Phi has over 57,000 initiated members and keeping track of correct addresses is more than a hand full. The change in Post Office policy offorwarding mail for only three months has caused many alumni to be lost to the Administrative Office.
The telephone solicitation was the first large scale interactive communication we have had with alumni in our history. Because of this effort over 1,500 member records were modified and vital information collected on 959 additional brothers. The program helped focus our attention on the need to constantly update our membership file using several methods of communicating with alumni. This fall the Fraternity will undertake a program to personally interact with each alumnus, the goal being an updated membership file and finding the "lost brothers" who now reside in our Mail Return File. The classic story offinding a "lost" brother comes from our chapter at Iowa State. During their very successful fundraising project for the new house, they called an alumnus who had been receiving his mail at his mothers home since he graduated from Iowa State in 1933. He is newly retired and living in Idaho. The punch line to the story is yes, he did contribute and it was a most generous contribution at that. In approving the effort to update our membership file, Foundation Chairman Dr. James B. Edwards said,"having correct addresses and updated information about our alumni is vital to the future of Pi Kappa Phi." Your help is solicited and, as always, greatly appreciated.
Since January of 1990, you have contributed over $100,000 to the Foundation. Thank you for building our future. Let's keep us moving into the 90's!

"Strong Enough to Care"
Cornell strives to rekindle history and excellence Behind every chapter is a little history; the Psi Chapter of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity was established at Cornell in 1921. With its re-chartering in April of 1990,the present
Psi Chapter has become a part of a history. The members of the Psi Chapter look forward to discovering what kind of heritage it may have as a chapter and as part of
Pi Kappa Phi. The contacts made by Joel Allen and Todd Fields in early October of 1989 yielded a group oftwelve men which then grew to 28. Despite many of them being hesitant about becoming part ofthe Greek system,the chance to -find a fraternity" set them off with lofty ideals. A retreat at the house of Larry Thayer allowed them to set goals and come up with a purpose. They wanted to be an exemplary chapter in the Cornell Greek System, one of the ten largest in the United States. "We want to be leaders and we look into the future with high ideals and a will to strive for them," said member Paul Hoskins. After an informal fall rush, they had a group which was 38 strong and approximately half juniors. After spring rush, they pledged another 18, giving us our present number consisting of 53 initiated members and three associate members. They placed a premium on the value of community service, especially on service which is working with school children and disabled adults at Challenge Industries. One member of the Psi
Chapter is giving it his all for a group of young, aspiring soccer players. Psi members also show academic excellence and have an average GPA above a 3.0. After putting together a chartering brochure.the Psi Chapter moved toward initiation. The brothers were proud to learn about Pi Kappa Phi and about their brothers as they prepared for the day when Glenn Dickson and Kelley Bergstram would decide they were worthy to become the Psi Chapter at Cornell University. Psi has been recognized in the Cornell community for theirdiversity and their commitment to service. Their fundraisers have been successful and one of our members placed on the PUSH America team this summer. They took time out from their summer vacation on May 18-20 to go camping together in the cold, wet weather of New York. Through developing a caring brotherhood and excellence in service, the Psi Chapter can become an exemplary chapter in the Cornell Greek system and Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity.
UC-Davis finally chartered after traveling rocky roads Two years and four months after Joe Brady and Paul Green came to the UC-Davis campus aspiring to establish a chapter, the initial mission was finally completed on April 7 when the Zeta Sigma Chapter received its charter. Within a week of its colonization (22 members), it took a giant step in establishing themselves as a visible and viable member of the Greek system at UC-Davis when they secured a house (through a raffle) for the following year. Growth immediately followed when 10 new members were bidded during the spring of 1988 and the outlook for the future looked bright. PUSH became an integral part of the chapter growth. The chapter held its first car wash which raised nearly $500. They wanted to do more. Their efforts were rewarded with a PUSH Bowl-a-Thon that helped the chapter earn the Red Rose Award. Leadership Consultant Todd Fields stayed with the young chapter helping them
study and secure banquet and church details. "Thank heavens," Historian Michael Mandelbrot said. "He really gave us confidence." Executive Director Durward Owen and Thomas Sayre chartered the group. After completing the written test, the brothers had a meeting to talk about goals, problems and their mission. Thomas Sayre and Sonny 0'Drobinak led the orals. "At this point, we couldn't have possibly felt more brotherly," Mandelbrot said. Chartering teams from Sacramento State and Chico State did an excellent job with initiation. Nearly 28 months of work, and the initial mission was now complete, and all that was left during the chartering week was the chartering banquet. The banquet was extraordinary. Durward,"a man who had really intimidated us before we met him,"led the banquet ceremonies. We had a slide show, two guest speakers,and then Sayre presented our char-
ter. The brothers'clapping was nearly deafening. An emotional speech by our President, Jason Dunbar, followed, and then Durward ended the banquet with and unforgettable speech. "National brothers, if you ever come to
the remote town of Davis, California, you know you've always got people to stay with - your brothers ofZeta Sigma," Mandelbrot said. Pi Kappa Phi salutes Zeta Sigma and wishes them the best of luck!
CSUF turns dream into a charter The Zeta Rho Chapter at California State University at Fullerton was established as a colony in October 1987. At this
time Paul Green met with individuals who were interested in starting a new colony on this campus. Approximately 25 to 30 men
gathered to form this colony. During spring rush 1988, the colony picked up four men. By fall semester, the numbers had fallen to eighteen men. although their numbers were low, their spirits remained high. A successful fall rush resulted in their numbers returning to their previous level. Five more men were recruited during spring rush 1989. An incredible fall rush brought them eighteen more men the following semester. This finally made the chartering of their colony a real possibility. On January 12, 1990,Zeta Rho became a Pi Kapp Chapter. The completion of the written test, oral exams and brotherhood events paved the way for the granting of its charter. Ted Scharfenstein and Paul Drake were the chartering officers. Zeta Beta - UC-Davis and Zeta Mu - Cal State-Northridge were the initiating teams. Asst.Executive Director Glenn Dickson and Director of Expansion Todd Fields also helped with the charterting.

Delta Omega - Texas A&M reactivates with renewed spirit Texas A&M,one of the largest public universities in the nation, is now the home of the newest Pi Kappa Phi Chapter, Delta Omega. In 1979, Delta Omega was originally chartered. In 1987, Doug Doughty, now an alumnus,gave a plea at the Supreme Chapter for the national organization to "Please do something, anything to help my chapter." So, in 1988 the original charter was suspended due to poor recruitment practices and member irresponsibility. The Administrative Office sent Bill Maycock to reorganize in 1988 with the help of eight previous members. After several successful rushes, the membership was at
41. At the time of rechartering, 36 new members were initiated into Delta Omega, along with two previous members still remaining. The rechartering took place on the weekend of April 21, 1990. David Lane was the rechartering officer and Glenn Aspinwall was the assistant officer. The two rechartering teams consisted of the University ofTexas-Austin and the University ofTexasArlington. On Thursday,April 19,the chapter took its written tests and later spent the night at the chapter house to work on new goals and thoughts for the the next semester. The oral tests were given on Friday, and the initiation
procedure followed. The rechartering banquet was held on Saturday. The banquet began at 4:45 p.m. Dinner was served and David Lane was the guest speaker. A special presentation was made to the Brenham State School,a mental health/retardation facility that the chapter visits regularly. Edward Donnelly, a newly initiated member, presented the school with a check from PUSH for $1,200 to buy new saddles and bridles for their horses. The horses are used for a special physical therapy called HPO therapy. The chapter had recently raised the money, and it was a highlight of the banquet. After the banquet, the chapter and all
other invited guests attended Aggie Muster. Muster is a ceremony which is held once a year to remember all Aggies who have died in the past year. After the Muster ceremony, all guests and members retired to the Faculty Club, a private club and restaurant top of Rudder Tower on the A&M campus. Everyone enjoyed the dancing and entertaining atmosphere. Finally,the chapter concluded the weekend be attending church together. Delta Omega is the only chapter to be chartered on the A&M campus this year while A&M celebrates the recognition of being the first land,sea,and space grant grant college in the nation.
Bloomsburg becomes the newest chapter Pi Kappa Phi welcomes Zeta Upsilon at Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania as one of its newest chapters. Like the size of the school, relatively sniall butfun,so was the group of young men
who first met to make a change.In the spring of 1989,John J. Pek, with the help of Leadership Consultant Dean Divis, set out to bring a change to the Greek system at Bloomsburg.From many men,they selected
Barton College pledges 'eternal life' On April 21, 1990, the Pi Kappa Phi colony at Barton College(formerly Atlantic Christian College) became the Zeta Tau Chapter. The colony was started in April 1989 by a group of men who wished to improve the campus Greek system by organizing a new fraternity. Pi Kappa Phi is one of four fraternities on the Barton College campus, located in Wilson, NC. In fall 1989, Archon Tim Renfrow led the Fraternity and made it a recognizable force on campus. Vice-Archon Steve Breasure applied the "Founding Father" concept of recruiting with outstanding results. In the fall, the associate brothers pulled together and kept the colony strong by recruiting 12 initiates. The members of the colony worked diligently to fulfill the charter requirements without neglecting their grades and captured the highest GPA among the fraternities on campus,an award Zeta Tau hopes to hold for several years. Spring 1990 was full of excitement as the chartering date drew near. Meetings, study halls and projects were a daily routine just weeks before the"big dogs"from Charlotte were to visit. Loose ends in the fraternity were tied and the brothers were ready for the big test. On April 19, the chartering process began when the colony members took the written test. After, they stayed at the house all that night with each other. The next day,
Friday,the brothers assembled at the Fraternity house to take an oral board. After the shocking orals, which lasted nearly three hours, the members of the colony were informed that all 29 men would become the Founding Fathers of Zeta Tau. Initiation was held April 20, at the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in downtown Wilson. Zeta Tau's big brother chapter,Beta Phi from East Carolina University,performed the initiation ceremony without a flaw. On Saturday, April 21, the chartering banquet took place on campus. Awards were given to many people who helped the colony grow and develop in the process of being chartered. Archon Tim Renfrow gave an emotional speech which not only touched the Founding Fathers' hearts, but all who attended. At the end of the banquet, the brothers sang "The Rose of Pi Kappa Phi" and awarded each of their mothers with a red rose. The Founding Fathers of Pi Kappa Phi feel great pride in themselves and in the fraternity, and look forward to showing all male students what brotherhood is all about. Already two brothers have been elected as officers in the IFC. Now that their foot is in the door, they are ready to make more positive changes.The chartering ofZeta Tau will bring nothing but an eternal life in which future members will be as dedicated and take as much pride in their fraternity.
20 associate members to build a strong foundation for the Fraternity's newest colony. Within a month,the colony had grown to a size of 33 associate members and suddenly the gold and white Greek letters were seen, making an impression on the minds of the students all over campus. This group began paving the way for the future of Zeta Upsilon by setting three immediate goals: recruitment of new members, obtaining a fraternity house and meeting Pi Kappa Phi's minimum standards of operation and strict chartering requirements. The members had a year to get to know each other well before preparing for a long awaited rush, which had been denied by the local IFC for reasons of fear. Their fears became reality in the spring of 1990. The chapter pledged 11 new associate members, one of the largest classes of Bloomsburg. Also,a house was leased for the Fraternity by nine members of the chapter. This house was soon to become known as "The New Pi Kapp House." Since prior, all functions were held at other members houses and apartments. Situated so close to campus,Pi Kappa Phi's exposure grew bigger.
The chartering weekend began when Elliot Curtis and Paul Rice arrived on April 26. The 44 associate members were given written examinations that evening. The next day a four-hour oral examination was given by Chartering Officer and National Council Treasurer Jerry T. Brewer and Assistant Chartering Officer James Krucher, who is also Area I Governor. After successful completion of these examinations, the dedicated men realized they had accomplished their three goals. The 44 associate members were now ready to be initiated as brothers of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. Performing the ritual of initiation were Epsilon Psi-Slippery Rock and Zeta Nu-West Chester. On Saturday, the chartering banquet was held at the Days Inn in Danville Pennsylvania, where Archon Brian Kutsmeda accepted the charter. In attendance were their Chapter Advisor (alumnus of Alpha Mu Chapter)Randy Weirman,former Leadership Consultant Dean Div is, and Greek Advisor for Bloomsburg Lori Barsness. The closing benediction was the end of the beginning.

Puppets hit the road for 'Kids' Three Pi Kapps. Six Puppets. And 7,000 kids. That's what PUSH's"The Kids on the Block" program is all about. Scott Gates, Delta Sigma-Bowling Green, Mike Roth, Alpha Psi-Indiana, and Chad Manley, Epsilon Beta-Grand Valley will travel the Southeast this fall trying to help thirdgraders understand people with disabilities. The three men took a semester offfrom school to educate young children using life-size disabled and non-disabled puppets. The three will still graduate within the next school year. "I got tired of hearing kids in the hallways say,'Hey, look at the retard!" Manley, an advertising/public relations major, said."That little kid doesn't know what'retard' is. It's not fair to the little kid. I wanted to do something about this." Manley's parents have been foster parents to children with disabilities and non-disabilites since he was 10. Manley credits these experiences for joining The Kids on the Block. Young children learn about issues like blindness, cerebral palsy, deafness and mental retardation. After the skits, the third-graders get to talk to the puppets and ask questions about living with a disability. "Third-graders are impressionable," Roth, a sport mar-
keting major,said. "The hardest part will be making the kids concentrate on the puppets instead of us." The following are a list of dates where The Kids on the Block will be performing: Sept. 16-22: Roanoke, Va., Sept. 23-29: Raleigh, N.C., Sept. 30-Oct. 6: Columbia,S.C., Oct. 7-13: Charleston,S.C., Oct 14-20: Statesboro, Ga., Oct. 2127: Jacksonville, Fl., Oct. 28-30: Winter Park, Fl., Oct. 31Nov.3:Tallahassee,Fl., Nov.4-10: LaGrange,Ga.,Nov. 1117: Atlanta,Ga.,Nov.25-Dec. 1: Clemson,S.C.,and Dec.27: Spartanburg, S.C. Students and alumni in these cities are encouraged to call the PUSH office to get involved with this exciting program! "Through a little bit of work, we can make someone know something a little bit better on something they might be totally ignorant about," Gates said. Gates is a secondary education major specializing in environmental education. PUSH is currently taking applications for the Kids program for the spring semester. The program will expand in the Spring to add a second team opening positions for three additional Pi Kapps! For more info, contact Director of Development Sally Schafer at 704-522-7874.

Delta Upsilon Fraternity's Will Keim ente rtained students August 2 in Olin Theater discussi ng ways to break the tradtional negative Gree k stereotypes.
"Strong Enough to Care"
Alpha Upsilon-Drexel Brother named 1990 Student of the Year The Student of the Year is awarded annually to the student member whose abilities and accomplishments have had an impact on his chapter and has brought credit to his Fraternity. This year's applicants proved to be the cream of the crop. However, one student emerged as the winner. Joseph R. DeLuca of Alpha Upsilon-Drexel received the coveted award. Graduating with a 3.8 GPA on a 4.0 scale, DeLuca majored in electrical and computerengineering. "I am honored to have received this out of some many great Pi Kapps," DeLuca said at his acceptance speech during Pi Kapp College. "I still can't believe this happened to me." DeLuca excelled in the classroom as well as in his chapter and on his campus. He served as Treasurer while at the same time participated on the varsity crew team, work ed as an
undergraduate engineering tutor and helped as a member of the Drexel Solar Car team which placed eleventh in the recent international race sponsored by General Electric. DeLuca is a member of numerous honorary societies including Tau Beta Pi, Phi Eta Sigma and Eta Kappa Nu. He also received scholarships from the Unisys Corporation and the research arm of the Department of Defense. He has been on the dean's list at Drexel all four years in college. DeLuca now works for the General Electric Corporation in the Astro Space Division working with digital design. Keith Barsky from Delta Upsilon-Pittsburgh was chosen as runne r-up for this year's award. â€˘

Krucher takes the big prize for third time The Area Governor'sjob could be described as one entailing countless hours of unrewarded work. It is normally only at national events that our Area Governors are given the attention and appreciation they merit. Every year,one Area Governor is honored with the Area Governor of the Year Award. This man must set goals for his area and carry them out and answer to the student chapters, the National Council,the Chapter Advisors and the Executiv e Director. This year's Area Governor accompli shed these qualifications. He is Jim Krucher, Beta Alpha-NJIT,from Area I. "I am just utterly delighted to receive this awar d," Krucher said. Since Krucher took over the job in 1985, his area has increased from 11 to 18 chapters with two charterings and two successful expansions last year alone. He had nine chapters in the top one-third ranki ngs and nine chapters received awards this year at Pi Kapp College. Krucher won the award for the third time duri ng his five-year tenure.
Students participate in "People Pass" duri ng the team building games August 4. The game was one of several that students played in order to build trust and brotherhood. They concluded in an earth ball rugby tournament which resulted in a 1-0 victory by the South against the North.
