H Fraternity to me is Brotherhood, one of the most impelHng objectives of man.
Perhaps one of the most beautiful as well as meaningful mottoes that has been
conceived by man is that of the French Nation — "liberty-equality-fraternity."
While the creators of that motto may not have had fraternity as we know it in mind,
it still paints a realistic picture of our institution.
Fraternity does not, nor will it, indulge in slavery — it is founded upon liberty. Being
a melting pot of men of various faiths, desires, and objectives, it must of its nature be
founded on the equality of all men who become members, for without it fraternity's
foundations would be unsound. And the word Fraternity blends all its objectives,
desires, and attainments into what we know as Brotherhood.
In these days of unrest there are those who would destroy us, take away from us
those fundamental rights which are actually the rights of all peoples to be free; to
enjoy companionship with those of like thoughts and ideals. Upon our proving that
our ideals and objectives are worth while we will enjoy the future of Fraternity. But
we must do more; we must be prepared to do that which is necessary to protect our
institution by action as well as thought. It seemingly does not deter criticism by un-
believers to do good, to strive for the betterment of our members, and to live and
act in the manner of men of stability, courage, and faith.

Readers are urged to communicate. Sig Ep
viewpoints from the "grass roofs" of the
Fraternity are valuable and interesting and
not otherwise obtained and thus form a vital
part of the Journal.
Found: One Badge
I am a dormitory counselor at Kent State Uni-
versity. One of the freshmen found a S * E badge
this summer in Cleveland. He gave it to me since
I am a Sig Ep here at Kent.
I would appreciate it if you would put a
FOUND notice in the Journal. It is a full-sized
badge and the chapter designation is "E." The
pin has the initials E.G.W. and the number 236 on
the back. The brother who owns the pin is his
chapter's chaplain. — Frank D. Spiegelberc, Kent
State Chapter, 202 North Lincoln, Kent, Ohio
'Weed Out the Bungs!
There must be thousands of alumni who read
the Journal but never take time to express
appreciation for each issue. The November issue
seems a particularly good one^— in fact, I think
the magazine is growing in quality.
The anonymous letter on page 36 raises a note
of sympathy and concern. I spent four years at
NYA in the thirties and I saw, as I imagine most
fraternities do, a sag in morale during that time,
plus a revival of spirit also. We had a strong
alumni group near us and I believe they helped to
straighten things out, although their influence was
so subtle that I never was conscious of it.
An upswing in chapter morale is usually led by
a core of seniors (maybe juniors also) who en-
force neatness, study quiet time, respectable
hours, respect for the homemother, participation
in valid campus activities, in fact all facets of liv-
ing common to educated gentlemen.
It would seem better for the chapter to have
15-20 well-roimded and good-intentioned men
rather than a passel of hastily pledged kooks. Fi-
nances will be a problem for a while but a year
or two of more selective rushing and more con-
cern by a hard core of members will prove suc-
cessful in the long run.
What does the district governor know of this
chapter? Who are the interested alumni? Is the
house financially in good standing? What's the
housemother doing through aU this? How are the
scholastic grades? Weed out the bums and start
I'd like to compliment William O'Brien, the
present corresponding secretary at Syracuse, for
finally getting NYA back into the news. The
Journal is read by far more people than the
chapter men usually realize.
It's good to find NYA is still alive and kicking.

new East, Oak Lawn, 111.
I felt you would want to include in your cover-
age of the Headquarters dedication in the next
Journal the substantial and significant participa-
tion therein by the brothers of District XXX, who,
I am sure, local chapters notwithstanding, were
most amply in evidence throughout the weekend.
For your information, here are some statistics:
New Jersey Alpha, Stevens Tech, was repre-
sented by 17 brothers and pledges, their house-
mother Mrs. Grace Rettig, and four dates from
New York Delta, RPI, was represented by 5
The Seton Hall Colony was represented by 4
In addition, the District Governor and Assis-
tant Governor (Ron Fenolio, Calif. A) were pres-
ent. That totals about 11,500 man-miles, by the
The District also sponsored a reception at the
John Marshall Hotel for Grand Chapter officers,
district governors, the Headquarters staflF, Past
Grand Presidents, Journal editors, and other
brothers. — Bruce H. Hasenkamp, Dartmouth, '60,
Governor of District 30, 120 Broadway, Room
3250, New York, N.Y.
► Comments from some of the Stevens men
who attended follow:
Rich Kielar, '70: "The dedication was inspir-
ing to me individually. Seeing the physical as-
pects of National, and meeting founders Carter
and Cox was impressive, and wiU leave memories
with me. The dedication made me feel much more
a part of the goings on at the national level."
Dennis Erdman, '69: "I primarily enjoyed the
opportunity of meeting members of other chapters
and exchanging ideas with them. I felt the dance
was the highlight for me, but the impressiveness
of the new National Headquarters building left
perhaps the most lasting impression. The frater-
nal atmosphere which pervaded the air was most
heartening and enjoyable."
John Scillieri, '69: "I was truly impressed by
the rooms in the headquarters. The number of Sig
Eps in attendance was somewhat disappointing,
especially in light of the fact that half the Ste-
vens Tech brotherhood attended despite a
350-mile trip. The cocktail hour and the dance
were most enjoyable, and the trip was most
worthwhile. The symbolism in the various parts of
the house was most interesting."
John Ritger, '69: "I was particularly moved by
meeting the Founders, and enjoyed the affair very
Firm Stand JTrged
It was recently brought to my attention that
several fraternities at Michigan State University
are suspected of sponsoring marijuana parties for
their members. A number of fraternity men are
also suspected of possessing and using drugs.
I must stress that no allegations have yet been
proved. However, the conditions prevailing here at
Michigan State have served to demand that frater-
nities on our campus take a firm stand on the
subject of possession and/or use of drugs by fra-
Michigan Epsilon has not and will not tolerate
such a situation in our chapter.
We urge our brothers across the country to
take a realistic look at their chapter policies in
view of the seriously detrimental effects violation
of federal and state narcotics laws will have on
individual brothers, on local operations and on
Sigma Phi Epsilon as a whole.
This is an excellent opportunity for us to show
that Sigma Phi Epsilon stands for decency and
maturity, and to protect ourselves from a perhaps
unsuspected source of grave harm. — John
Spencer, President, Michigan State Chapter, 526
Sunset Lane, East Lansing, Mich.
From Founder 3McCaul
I want to express this word of gratitude to all
brothers and chapters for their Christmas and
New Year greetings.
May God bless them all and our beloved Fra-
THE HALLS OF THE HEART
The sweet scented meadows, the blue-tinted sky.
They do not desert us when Summer goes by;
For all thru the Winter; tho' Summer depart,
Their pictures are hung in the "Halls of the Heart."
The darker the day, the sadder the mood.
The brighter the mem'ries of mountain and wood:
And worried in mill and wearied in mart.
We turn in relief to the "Halls of the Heart."
The sweet loving smile and the bright beaming eye —
These stay with us still; tho' our darlings may die;
For love and remembrance with magical art.
Still picture them forth in the "Halls of the Heart."
Then face we the future, how'er it may frown;
Tho' sorrows, like snows of the Winter, come down;
The joys of the past of our lives are a part;
We keep them for aye in the "Halls of the Heart."
— Thomas Vaden McCaul, Founder

1967 All-Si^ Ep Football Team
By ALLAN FERGUSON
THE 1967 edition of the Sig Ep Football
All-America is an outstanding team featur-
ing five players who have been listed as hon-
orable mentions in the Associated Press All-
America selections. The team members are
well-rounded individuals who have done well
on the academic gridiron and are active as
brothers in Sigma Phi Epsilon. Two members
of the 1966 All-Sig Ep team have been se-
lected on the 1967 team; while one school,
North Texas State, has placed two athletes on
this year's all-star team.
Mike Shoat, halfback

Al Hatfield, quarterback
The NCAA awarded 33 outstanding senior
football players $1,000 graduate scholarships
this December with two Sig Ep scholar-ath-
letes being chosen. They are center Paul
Draper of North Texas State and Ben Mor-
tensen, an offensive guard on the University
of Pennsylvania's team. Draper, a member of
the Missouri Valley Conference all-academic
team, maintained a 3.21 in mathematics;
while Ben Mortensen maintained a 3.6 as a
chemical engineer at Penn.
Selections for this 1967 team were based on
the individual's performance and the accom-
plishments of the team. Initial reports in the
fall indicated that a good many more Sig Ep
stars existed than were reported by the chap-
ter correspondents. If entries had been re-
ceived for these players, it would have been
possible to select both an offensive and defen-
sive team. It is hoped, however, that more
chapters will participate in the 1968 All-
The ends this year are Gary Arthur, an
All-America (AP) honorable mention at
Miami of Ohio and Pete Sokalsky, a tough
defensive end and All-Atlantic Coast pick of
North Carolina State's (9-2) Liberty Bowl
Arthur picked off 14 passes and 145 yards
for the Redskins as this strong sophomore, a
Mid-American Conference all-star, gained rec-
ognition as a hard-hitting tight end. Coach Bo
Schembeckler feels Gary has the most poten-
tial of any Miami end in the past five seasons.
Nicknamed the "Brute," Gary is considered
the best blocker on the team. A paper tech-
nology major from Dayton, Ohio, he should
give Miami's opposition something to worry
about for the next two seasons.
The Liberty Bowl champion Wolfpack team
considered defensive end Pete Sokalsky a
prime force in their highly successful season.
Sokalsky was all ACC as a sophomore but
missed the entire junior year due to a knee
injury. Starting out slowly this year, Sokalsky
then set up a touchdown on a key fumble re-
covery against Buffalo and against bowl-
bound Florida State. Pete made several im-
portant tackles and also deflected a pass in
the 20-10 win over Florida State. Sokalsky is
a mathematics-education major from Allen-
Moving over to the tackle slots, we find
Paul Bunyan-like Doug Crusan. A 235-lb. so-
ciology major, who spends his Saturdays as
an All-Big Ten, All-America (AP) tackle for
Indiana's Fighting Hoosiers. Captain of this
surprising Indiana team which won the Big
Ten Championship and the right to play USC
in the Rose Bowl, Doug was a 1966 Sig Ep
All-America and a member of AP and UPI's
All-Big Ten teams. Rounding out his extra-
curricular activities, Crusan is a member of
the Senior Class Council and enjoys his posi-
tion as Santa Claus at the Indiana Sig Eps'
annual Christmas party for underprivileged
children. A participant in the Senior Bowl
game in January, Crusan hopes to continue
playing football as a professional next fall.
At the other tackle spot is Greg Shelley, also
an honorable mention on the AP All-America.
Greg was an offensive guard for the Univer-
sity of Virginia Cavaliers and a member of
the Atlantic Coast Conference's AU-Confer-

ALLAN FERGUSON, a project engineer for Permacel division
of Johnson & Johnson, New Brunswick, N.J., was graduated from
the University of Delaware in 1965 with a BSChE. At Delaware,
he was on the freshman and varsity track teams, participated in
intramurals and was president of the Intramural Council. In
the brotherhood, he served as vice-president, alumni relations
chairman, athletic chairman, and as co-editor of the chapter news-
paper. In his senior year, he was honored as the Outstanding
Brother of Delaware Alpha. He is working for an MBA evenings
at Fairleigh Dickinson University and is a member of AIChE
ence teams. A junior, Shelley will form the
nucleus for Virginia's oflFensive line next fall.
Ben Mortensen, a well-rounded Sig Ep
from Penn, fills one of the guard spots. An
All-Ivy selection and winner of the NCAA
graduate scholarship, Mortensen is also a
member of Sphinx Senior Honor Society and
Tau Beta Pi, an engineering honor society.
Mortensen was considered by the coaches as
the team's best blocker and an excellent tech-
Omaha University, (7-3) CIC Conference
champions, had an all-conference guard in
junior Dan Klepper, Co-captain of next year's
Indian team, Klepper was said, by the
coaches, to be big, fast and durable enough to
play any position in college football. Dan was
also selected to the NAIA All-District II
Missouri Valley Conference champions,
North Texas State, have two all-stars in cen-
ter Paul Draper and fullback Mike Shoat.
Draper, like Crusan, repeats another year as
a Sig Ep All-America. He has garnered a
long list of honors including All-Conference
and honorable mention All-America (AP)
listings. A scholastic standout with a 3.2/4.0
average in mathematics. Draper was also cho-
sen to the Scholastic All-America and Mis-
souri Valley Conference Scholastic teams.
Paul is an outstanding Sig Ep who has been
listed in Who's Who in American Colleges
and Universities for his collegiate achieve-
ments. In addition to his fraternity activities,
Paul is active as a member of the Fellowship
of Christian Athletes.
Playing behind Paul is this year's fullback
Mike Shoat, a 205-lb. junior also from North
Texas State. Shoat, a defensive specialist,
earned all-conference honors as he placed
fifth in the nation in interceptions with a total
of seven on the season.
The University of Missouri at Rolla has an
outstanding ball player in Larry Oliver, an
all-conference selection. Oliver, a junior in
the school of engineering, had 33 pass recep-
tions for 469 yards while returning 19 punts
for a total of 177 yards. Oliver set a school
record for single game receptions, picking off
11 against Missouri Valley,
In the opposite halfback slot, we have Cen-
tral Michigan University's Craig Tefft, a
bruising sophomore runner who finished the
season with a total of 1040 yards. Selected to
the all-conference team, Craig also received
24 passes and scored 72 points as he was se-
lected by his teammates as the team's most
Signal-calling for the "Fighting Scots" of
Monmouth College was junior Alan Hatfield,
a versatile athlete who played both ways. Hat-
field intercepted ten passes while playing as
the deep back for the Scots and was selected
to the Mideast Conference All-Star team. A
6'3" 190-lb. junior, he led the Scots in total
offense last season. Exemplifying the versatile
Sig Ep, Hatfield is an outstanding student
who currently ranks second in the school of
chemistry which is his major field of study.
All of the members of this year's All-Sig
Ep team have performed with distinction on
the football field and have also been outstand-
ing students as they typify the pursuit of ex-
cellence of Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Galbreath Chapel is place of worship for all.
THE BIG HEART, in the name of Sigma Phi
Epsilon, arrived at Ohio University, Ath-
ens, Ohio, November 18. On this date, 30 an-
xious men became charter members of Ohio
Xi Chapter, one year and four days from the
date a group of 20 men at Ohio University
became Sigma Epsilon Colony.
Weekend activities began with the arrival
of Bob Lynch, staff representative, and Rio
Myers. Bob greeted the colony actives with
the news that the pledge test would be held
Friday night. Ric was Sigma Epsilon Colony's
"founding father," as he was most instrumen-
tal in solving the many problems of a young
colony in November and December, 1966.
Initiation teams from Ohio Northern, Uni-
versity of Cincinnati, and Marshall University
arrived Saturday morning. The following men
were initiated: Wayne Shere, Cleveland
Heights; Richard Pazder, Lorain; Charles
Herzer, Lorain; William Krider, Lawrence-
burg, Ind.; Jonathan Miller, Cuyahoga
Falls; Arthur Wesp, Alexandria, Va. ; Jeffrey
Barton, Germantown; John Beabout, Canton;

After the initiations, the ritual was ex-
plained and final plans were made for the in-
stallation banquet, held early Saturday eve-
ning at the Sportsman, not far from the Ohio
Distinguished guests at the banquet in-
cluded the presidents of all fraternities and
sororities on the Ohio campus, Brothers
Lynch, Myers, District Governor John Hart-
man, and Sig Ep Public Relations Director
Harry D. Kurtz. Also attending were Dean of
Fraternities Fuller and three members of the
Alumni Housing Corporation, Clyde D.

Baker, Stanley P. Fisher, and Michael Disko.
Other members of the corporation are Robert
Sympson, Alfred Carpenter, Leonard Rand,
Charles Perrine, and Donald Olbers.
Wayne Shere was master of ceremonies. He
said that the past year as a colony was but
the "introduction to a book," and that we are
now ready to "start the first chapter." Dean
Fuller stated that at installation we had not
reached "a culmination of effort, but simply a
door opening to greater things," and added,
"Success is a journey, not a destination." Bob
Lynch's statement was intended for the recent
initiates when he quoted an obscure Chinese
philosopher's saying, "He who accounts all
things easy will encounter many difficulties."

He also said that "the horses were here to
pull the wagon," and that "the future is
created by the present." Lynch introduced the
guest speaker, Brother Kurtz, who revealed
that Sigma Phi Epsilon had contacts at Ohio
University 25 years ago, but were not satis-
fied. He felt the 25-year wait was worth the
final product, Ohio Xi.
With the installation of Ohio Xi, the
twelfth chapter in Ohio, Sigma Phi Epsilon
numbers 168 chapters. After he gave a short
history of the colony. Brother Kurtz presented
the charter to President Wayne Shere.
OflScers were installed by Brother Lynch,
final words of advice were expressed, and the
banquet was ended with benediction by Ric
Myers. A formal dance followed the ban-

tablished in 1804, it was the first institution
of higher learning in the Northwest Territory,
and has grown with the United States and the

for completion sometime during the year.
State of Ohio into a well-known and highly-
respected institution of higher education.
Ohio University students have participated in
seven wars and countless humanitarian ef-
forts. Ohio U. is currently involved with the
establishment of educational programs in
such countries as Nigeria and South Vietnam.
Sprawled upon the hills of Appalachia, Ohio
University has been actively participating
with other universities in a cooperative effort
to rid the area of its poverty and the resultant
ills of poverty.
Ohio University, located in southeastern
Ohio, enrolls 15,000 students at the Athens
campus. Five campuses in other communities
are included in the Ohio University "family."
Construction of a library and a coliseum-type
sports-convocation complex highlight the cur-
rent expansion effort. Beta Theta Pi was the
pioneer fraternity in 1841.
Nineteen national fraternities and 13 soror-
ities are at home on the Ohio campus. Frater-
nities include Acacia, Beta Theta Pi, Delta

Alpha, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Epsilon Pi, Phi
Gamma Delta, Phi Kappa Sigma, Phi Kappa

Fraternities and sororities are in the pro-
cess of re-evaluating their position within the
university system, and are changing with the
dynamic trends in learning to become more
and more necessary to the college student in
search of ideals.
After consideration of the fraternity system
at Ohio University, Wayne Shere decided a
more mature type of fraternity was needed.
Review of the goals and objectives of Sigma
Phi Epsilon revealed it as the fraternity most
likely to meet his wants.
With much correspondence and contacts
within the University, Wayne and the Grand
Chapter arranged a rush to form a colony nu-
cleus. During the weekend of September
17-18, 1966, National representatives and men
from Miami University, Marshall, University
of Cincinnati, and Ohio State joined forces to
choose the 18 members for the nucleus. For-
mal colonization was held November 14, 1966.
With constant interest and guidance from
the alumni, the potential chapter took form.
During the first semester, the colony met in
rooms provided by the University, partici-
pated in many activities, including intramu-
rals, weekly dinners, community service proj-
ects. Through the efforts of local alumni a
house was leased from another fraternity for
the second semester, providing rooms for 13
men, as well as a meeting place for colony ac-
tive and pledge meetings.
Ohio Sig Ep house holds 24 brothers.
Sigma Epsilon Colony brought its member-
ship up to about 40 men during the second
semester and likewise increased its activities.
A Glee Club was formed, intramural teams
increased their power, and social activities be-
came more frequent. The first Sweetheart
Formal was held in the spring. Near the end
of the semester negotiations were begun for
the purchase of a house at 34 N. Congress
Street, the permanent residence of Sigma Phi
Epsilon at Ohio University. The house is
home for 24 men, and has much potential for
expansion of facilities.
The men of Ohio Xi will strive to further
the goals of Sigma Phi Epsilon in their quest
to make it the fraternity at Ohio University.
They will reach this goal under the guidance
of the words of Dr. U. G. Dubach, "We can-
not be common ; we must be different,"
Cutler Hall is the oldest school building in use west of the Appalachian Mountains.
A young man of achievement first
must be motivated — he must organize
himself, work hard, and Uve clean
ANY boy of average intelligence can do col-
lege work if he observes certain funda-
mental principles. They are simple but vital
to success. They must be observed every day.
They are as follows :
1. Motivation. Every boy must make up his
mind that college work comes first and that
he will give his all to the job in hand. No one
can do this for him. A Fraternity can be of
help to him. It may even be a hindrance to
him by requiring him to give time to activities
or other outside work. This is where the re-
sponsibility comes in. Will the Fraternity
make clear to the pledge that the responsibil-
ity is primarily his and will the Fraternity
help him in his determination to succeed? To
repeat — every boy must make up his mind to
give his all to his college work and then fol-
2. Match his college course to his natural
abilities. Many boys fail in college because
they attempt the wrong course of study. One
needs to fit his course to his natural abilities
and likes. A boy can review his experience in
high school and answer the question. He
should, of course, consult with the high
school faculty about the matter of his choice
of college work. The requirement for any
course can be ascertained. For example — no
boy should try engineering unless he is an
able student of mathematics and science. The
natural requirement for all college courses
can be learned by consulting the faculty. In
my own experience as Dean of Men, I con-
ferred with many students about this prob-
lem. One day I called a student (Freshman)
who was failing in Engineering. After some
preliminary questions, I asked him why he
had chosen Engineering — had he fixed a door
bell or the battery on a Ford? His answer —
"I fixed the battery on a Ford." Coming from
a dairy district, I asked him whether he had
milked a cow. He answered almost angrily, "I
came to college to get away from cows." He
had no knowledge about various outlets in the
dairy business except milking cows! I told
him about dairy manufacture and fixed him a
course in that field. He proved to be a good
student as soon as he was in the right field
and finished his college course so well that
the department kept him as a graduate assis-
tant. Had he continued in Engineering, he
would have been a failure. The same experi-
ence could be given for other fields of study.
This case merely illustrates a common experi-
3. Reading and taking notes. A boy must
realize that in college there are certain musts
if he is to succeed. More boys fail in college
because of the inability to read except unwill-
ingness to work. The ability to read like other
abilities requires practice. No one would say
a boy could be a success in athletics without
endless hours of practice. The same rule ap-
plies to reading. Many colleges provide
courses in remedial reading. Every boy who
lacks reading ability should take such a
course. Practice will help him a lot.
Good note taking is another must in col-
lege. When performing a lesson — reading —
one should make brief notes even if he de-
stroys them after the preparation of a lesson.
Of course, no student should go to class, reci-
How To Get It

tation or lecture, without a notebook. The stu-
dent should review the notes during the study
period. He might then add to them while the
lecture or lesson is fresh in his mind. If he
waits until examination to review the notes,
they may be meaningless to him. Success or
failure may depend on note-taking.
4. Make time budgets. If a boy is smart he
will budget his time instead of pursuing a
hit-and-miss study program. In helping count-
less boys make time budgets, I always started
with 8 hours of sleep at night, not in classes.
Then we gave 3 hours to eat and 3 to play.
That leaves 10 hours for work — classes and
study. In his budget, a boy should put in 2
hours of study for each class. Some lessons
may require more, some less. These adjust-
ments can be made very readily. A part of
the weekends must be used for study. Every
student must choose the time and follow-
through. If such a plan is followed any boy
would find time for everything that needs to
be done in college. The experience will be
valuable in his life's work after graduation.
5. Work hard — live clean. There is no sub-
stitute for work. A great industrialist put it
this way, "Any man who does not do all his
job requires, is dishonest. Any man who does
not do more than his job requires, is not
wise." The same rule applies to college work.
You will remember this paper began with
Motivation. It ends with the result of Motiva-
tion. Work as though every thing depended
on you, and it does just that. Live clean, live
and work hard, and no one can keep you
from success. This is the pay-off of college.
Tribute to Dr. Dubach
From remarks by former Grand President H.
Bob Robinson at presentation of oil portrait of
Dr. Dubach at the Cleveland Conclave
DR. U. G. DUBACH has given much of his time
and himself to our fraternity. He so much looked
forward to being here because^ — ^being in his 87th
year — he felt this would be his last.
As Doc would say if he were here — "I'm sorry
I can't be there to tell the boys where to stack
His educational background is noteworthy:
Graduate Kansas Teacher's College; A.B. degree,
Indiana University; M.A. degree, Harvard Univer-
sity; Ph.D. degree, Wisconsin University; LLD
degree, Willamette University; L.H.S. degree,
Lewis and Clark College.
Upon completion of his Ph.D. from Wisconsin
in 1913, he accepted a position way out west in
Corvallis, Ore., in what is now Oregon State Uni-
versity. He said at that time, all he had was a
new wife and a large college debt. He told him-
self when he had paid off this college debt, he
would return to the United States.
However, fate decreed he should stay, and he
was 34 years Professor of Political Science and 23
years Dean of Men, where he became an integral
part of the University and the state of Oregon,
In 1947, age made it mandatory for him to re-
tire, but, as he said, "there was too much life in
the old horse and he refused to be put out to pas-
ture" ... so from 1947 to 1960, he was Professor
of Political Science at Lewis and Clark College in
In addition to his educational work, he was
challenged by many other areas of activity —
Church, YMCA, Masonic lodge, and Politics; but
his greatest love was Sigma Phi Epsilon. When he
said "my fraternity" his whole face lighted and he
never tired of giving his all to make our frater-

owes its enviable record as one of the outstanding
fraternity chapters in the nation to Doc. It was he
who got this chapter under way and he has been
its guide and mentor all through the years.
In our national PVaternity, Brother Dubach has
held many offices. For the past 20 years, he was
national scholarship director, and for the past six
years, a member of the National Board of Direc-
During his years as Scholarship Director,
Sigma Phi Epsilon made its greatest strides in
scholarship. He often said, "Scholarship is a mat-
ter of character. If you have the desire and the
will to do — you can reach your goal." He also
said, "You may find it necessary to compromise on
details and methods, but never on principles."

Motorists stop frequently to contribute.
HE amount of self-fulfillment that an indi-
vidual derives cannot compare with the
pride and satisfaction that a brotherhood re-
ceives by contributing to a worthwhile cause.
With this idea in mind, the brothers of Indi-
ana Tech at Fort Wayne organized their sec-
ond 80-mile Olympic style relay run on Octo-
ber 28 in order to raise funds for the United
States Olympic Teams.
The format of the brothers' 1963 run was
used as a basis in planning this latest run.
Contacted was J. Lynam Bingham, fund-rais-
ing chairman at the Olympic House in New
York. It was interesting to note that Bingham
is a Sig Ep from the Denver chapter. He pro-
vided the brothers with posters, collection
boxes, and suggestions for staging a success-
The neighboring communities agreed to as-
sist by providing police escorts through the
towns as well as full radio and television cov-
erage of both practice sessions and the actual
run. The Indiana State Highway Department
cooperated by letting the brothers tie up 80
miles of highway between the Indiana
Gamma chapter at Ball State and their home
chapter in Fort Wayne. John Yount, chapter
president at Ball State, started the run at
6:30 A.M. by running the first two-mile leg.
Collection and continuation of the run to Fort
Wayne was then undertaken by 20 brothers of
Indiana Eta. The runners passed through the
towns of Muncie, Hartford City, Montpelier,
Bluffton, Ossian, and finally Fort Wayne,
going from door to door along the main route
accepting donations. Passing motorists
stopped along the roadsides giving their con-
tributions to brothers displaying the United
States Olympic collection box. Pencils com-
memorating the event were given out to each
The torches which carried a constant flame
throughout the run were compliments of Dave
Norr, an alumnus of Indiana Eta. He also
contributed a van that closely followed the
runners providing them with assistance as
well as carrying fuel for the torches.
As the runners neared their destination
they realized that their efforts made this run
even more successful than was anticipated.
Indiana Eta president Dean Gaudreau ran the
final leg of the run through the city of Fort
Wayne and the Indiana Tech campus to light
a symbolic torch on the Sig Ep lawn. This
brought to a close the run which lasted nine
hours and forty-seven minutes. An open house
was held at which time additional contribu-
tions were accepted. A check amounting to
more than $300 was sent to the Olympic
House in New York City. The largest single
contribution was given by A. Walter Hamil-
ton, a Sig Ep practicing law in Bluffton, Ind.
As news of the upcoming Olympics reaches
the brothers they will have a definite feeling
of pride and satisfaction in helping to send
our country's teams to the Olympic Games.
Though very tired, Dan Berona is obviously
determined to complete the two-mile journey.

J. Stephen Hank, Miami (Ohio)
ANY Students today are becoming in-
creasingly confused about where our
technocratic society is leading us. The mean-
ingful simplicity of our grandfathers' day has
been replaced by the bewildering sterility of
our own age. As college students we see this
trend manifested in a gradual tilting of our
scales of values. In the classrooms, expe-
diency is becoming more important than qual-
ity, "getting through" the text supersedes un-
derstanding it, order and precision are pre-
ferred to imagination. Students dissatisfied
with their classes are seeking direction and
identity elsewhere on campus. This is particu-
larly significant to the fraternity system,
which has something to offer these students.
However, it is vitally important that fraternity
men make known the assets of the system.
While perhaps our founders' conception of
brotherhood has necessarily undergone con-
siderable change, yet fraternities are by na-
ture operating against the sterility of a non-
personal society and towards better under-
standing among people through firsthand ex-
While it is important that we cherish and
respect the traditions unique to our own
chapters, it is equally important that we
broaden the scope of this firsthand contact
with people. It is said in our fraternity's man-
ual that at one time Sigma Phi Epsilon had
to decide between expanding to a national or-
ganization or dying through entropy. Perhaps
now we must extend the principles basic to
all fraternities or the whole system will col-
lapse. It is not enough that we open our doors
in rush season; we must be associated with
people and groups outside our own house,
and this includes those in other houses as
well as nonfraternity men.
There are many ways we may achieve this
contact. By taking an active part in nonfrater-
nity affairs on campus, by using the multiple
voice of our active members to express the
objections and frustrations common to all stu-
dents, we improve our communication with
nonfraternity men and help to dispel the "elit-
ist myth" with respect to fraternities that has
grown up on many campuses. Through coop-
erative projects with other houses (such as
my own chapter's recent cooperative theme
party with the Sigma Alpha Mu chapter on
Miami's campus) fraternity men enlarge the
effectiveness of their common aims and dem-
onstrate by example those ideals of brother-
hood and understanding which are so often
merely talked about.
As with many things the time for action in
any particular area is somewhat seasonal. For
years an ideal may lie cloistered within a nec-
essarily limited organization and be practi-
cally ineffectual in the society at large. Then,
^ who feel themselves losing contact

the warmth of a fraternity
By J. STEPHEN HANK
when the philosophical flavor of society
changes, the ideal may be brought to fruition
with little effort, because people need it.
Perhaps the time is now ripe for the ideal
of brotherhood. Perhaps students who feel
themselves losing contact with human under-
standing and personable relationships now
need this human contact as never before. Per-
haps the unconcerned learning institutions of
today are creating an atmosphere ripe for the
culmination of the dream of our founders.

THE Monmouth chapter, winner of a "best

also won the Benjamin Hobson Frayser
Award for having the best chapter newspa-
per. A close look at the newspaper and at the
chapter shows this was not a coincidence.
The Monmouth entry, Straight from the
Heart, edited by Chet June, earned its place
at the top for excellence in several categories,
including typographic design and make-up,
newswriting, photography, and thoroughness
and variety of coverage. However, the pages
of the May, 1967, issue were so well fitted
with shining example features that the paper
appeared to radiate a special light. These
shining example features were definitely occa-
sioned by versatile top-notch performance on
the part of all brothers.
The lead story carried this banner head:
"all pledges make grades and initiate." It
was a first for Monmouth fraternities — the
first time that all members of a big pledge
class made their grades. It is a fairly consis-
tent rule that pledges who make their grades
academically can make the grade in other
ways as well.
The front page of the Monmouth paper
also displays a cut of the new chapter house
and a story, "Sig Eps Direct All Campus

star journalists involved.

Those chapters that can claim unbroken

that uninterrupted alumni relations are a nec-

DONALD M. JOHNSON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Constitution Amendment The amendment to the Constitution, Article II, Section 2,
as passed by the 30th Grand Chapter, has been ratified by a majority of the chapters of the
Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution now reads: "To be eligible for membership in the
Fraternity, a man shall be of good moral character and not a member of another National
Interfraternity Conference fraternity."
All chapters and officers will receive instructions on amendments to the Book of Laws
(1965 edition) as a result of action taken by the 30th Grand Chapter. These changes to the
Book of Laws will be issued in February.
Staff Change Donald L. Tanner, Memphis State, '67, assumed the duties of Program
Development Director for Sigma Phi Epsilon, effective January 18. Brother Tanner brings
experience as staff representative, in addition to an outstanding undergraduate experience,
to this newly created position.
The Program Development Director will provide the Fraternity Headquarters with addi-
tional depth in skill. He will be responsible to the Executive Director for evaluating and
revising current procedures and operations, as well as developing and implementing new
programs. He will coordinate his efforts through the Headquarters staflF members to provide
them an opportunity to work on new programs. Initial priorities will be given to the 1968
Academy, chapter housing programs, and chapter finances. Future programs will enhance
all areas of the Fraternity's operation and development.
Lost Members In response to the Headquarters campaign to find all "lost" members,
at least two undergraduate chapters now have working addresses for all their members,
thus earning a "100%" accolade for their achievement. All chapters are cooperating with
this project's vital goal: 100% working addresses for all members.

Meetings The National Board of Directors held its third meeting of the year, and its
first in the new Sigma Phi Epsilon Headquarters, November 4, 1967. The Saturday meeting
served as a prelude to the weekend of activities surrounding the dedication of the Head-
quarters building. The Board considered and took action on many matters: expansion,
colony installations proposed for this academic year; appointment of officials, and creation
of the new position of Assistant Grand Treasurer and appointing Langdon Palmer, Dart-
mouth, to that post. Brother Palmer is vice-president of Chase Manhattan Bank; his appoint-
ment will provide the Board with additional financial skill.
The ad hoc Scholarship Committee met in Chicago the weekend of January 12-14. Serving
on this committee are George Kaludis, Donald E. Kindle, Richard E. Pahre, and T. Reginald
Porter, chairman; Robert H. Ewalt attended the meeting as a consultant. This committee
is charged with evaluating our present scholarship program and revising it to meet the
needs for achieving academic excellence throughout the Fraternity.
There were 45 Sig Eps at the Fraternity Luncheon that was part of the program for the
National Interfraternity Conference annual meeting at the Statler Hilton Hotel in New
York City, November 30-December 2. The convention was sparked by the many Sig Ep
leaders participating in the program and working toward the betterment of the National
Interfraternity Conference and interfraternity cooperation. (A report of the Conference
appears on pages 26-28.)
Phillips Foundation Seholarsliips The Trustees of the William L. Phillips Founda-
tion have changed the date for submitting scholarship applications to March 1; this new date
will allow the naming of scholarship recipients by June instead of October. Applications
and their supporting documents are to be mailed to Headquarters. The Trustees took this
action at their meeting in Cleveland prior to the Grand Chapter/ Academy, when they also
reviewed plans for the $1 million fund-raising drive which is getting under way.
Directory Many requests are received yearly by Headquarters for the "latest" Sigma
Phi Epsilon Directory. The latest directory of members was published in 1949 and is now
out of print; if it were not out of print, it would be out of date. Over half of the present
83,000 membership has been initiated since that directory was published.
There seems to be considerable interest in having a new directory published, but this
would require a generous investment: approximately $35,000. That would be no particular
problem if enough members wanted the directory and were willing to buy the book at a
price which would reimburse the Fraternity for the expense.
What's your opinion: Would you be interested in owning a current Sigma Phi Epsilon
directory? If so, how much would you be willing to pay for the book or, to put it another
way, how much do you think the directory should cost? Please send your suggestions to the

IS THE RITUAL?
By JACK WHITFORD
It is a well-known fact that the social and ed-
ucational context within which the fraternity
exists is constantly changing. Students com-
ing to colleges and universities — and more-
over to Sigma Phi Epsilon — are different
today not only by virtue of their very num-
bers as a group, but also by virtue of their
quality as intelligent and informed individu-
als. In such a time, when the kind of prospec-
tive pledges and brothers (as well as their
number) is rapidly changing, it seems imper-
ative that we periodically re-examine all
phases of the fraternity's life and operation in
light of these changes. We must continually
Jack Whitford, chapter president at Rhode
Island, has examined the use of the Ritual.
ask, "Is this relevant and meaningful right
One basic area of the fraternity most often
neglected in any such scrutiny^ — ^either
through over-awe or under-interest — is the
Ritual. The two burning questions about the
Ritual (or ritual in general) that we must
ever re-examine for new generations are the
"what" and the "why" of ritual, for there is
altogether too much of both disinterest on the
one hand and fanaticism on the other con-
cerning the Ritual, oftentimes arising from
childish pre-conceptions about its purpose
First of all, what is ritual ; for surely if we
do not know what it is we are on poor
grounds to either defend or reject its use and
validity (if any) in the modern fraternity.
Webster notes ritual to be "any practice done
or regularly repeated in a set precise manner
so as to satisfy one's sense of fitness and often
felt to have symbolic significance." This, how-
ever, like so many academic definitions, is
perhaps quite correct but essentially dry and
uninteresting for it gives a meaning for the
word, but not a sense or feeling for the actual
thing itself. Beyond that, it is a rather sopho-
moric explanation for something which in
Sigma Phi Epsilon is supposed to be lived
and loved, not only by undergraduates but
by all brothers of all ages and degrees of ma-
Clearly then, we must seek for a more rele-
vant definition for the world of 1968. William
Barrett in his study of existential philosophy,
Irrational Man, comes much closer to a satis-
factory definition when he speaks of the ele-
ments of ritual as being something powerfully
real and meaningful to man: capable of keep-
ing "the vital circuit open between reason and
emotion, between the rational and the non-ra-
tional in the human psyche." What does this
mean? Essentially I think the message is that
ritual is a basic and essential form of human
communication — as essential as speech itself
to the healthy and happy growth and satisfac-
tion of the human soul.
However this may suffice as to what ritual
is, it says little as to why ritual (especially
The Ritual) is necessary or even desirable for
use in today's fraternity. After all, you may
say, this sort of esoteric communication may
have been beneficial in the Dark Ages or even
in the Dim Ages of 1901, but what, if any-

today? I offer the following general points for
We live in a so-called "scientific society" —
one in which awe, wonderment, and mystery
have been replaced by fact, or in more cases
than not, "pseudo-fact." Symbolism of any
kind is an intermediary, and intermediaries of
any kind are simply not in vogue this year.
Even language itself, a major system of pure
verbal and printed symbols is giving way to
electronic savants which communicate via
base-2 mathematics. This is indeed advanced
and horrifyingly efficient in our mass-pro-
duced society, but man — mass man or any
man especially the fraternity man, is not a
magnetic tape. He does not live, nor think,
nor have the ground of his being in base-2 no-
tation. True, the ritual of romance may have
been taken over by the computer, but show
me a man — especially a Sig Ep — who prefers,
for example, to express his love and affection
via punch-card rather than by kiss, and I'll
show you a madman. Human life soars to the
zenith of its grandeur through its moments of
most profound communication, and yet with-
out a vehicle of communication (which is
what ritual is, there is no communication
and human life degenerates to the absurd.
Ritual Elements Needed
The alienation and the exhausted mystique
of modem man in large measure stems from
the lack of meaningful ritual — from the lack
of meaningful vehicles of communication to
mark to the satisfaction of the human soul
the various momentous changes of status in
each individual life. The sense of festival and
of the dramatic have been so emasculated

THE NIC MEETS
IN NEW YORK
For the 31st time since its founding in 1909
the National Interfraternity Conference met
in New York to discuss the problems and
prospects of Fraternity Row. More than a
thousand undergraduate delegates of campus
IFCs, graduate representatives, and deans
and campus advisers to fraternities met at the
Statler Hilton on November 30-December 1.
The program followed the same theme as
the 1966 NIC at New Orleans— "The Chang-
ing Educational World — Making the Most of
Although the program still called for two
conferences — a graduate conference primarily
and secondarily an undergraduate conference
— the undergraduate on whose shoulders rests
the leadership of an effective campus system
was being moved closer to the front and cen-
ter of the stage. If he returned to the campus
with a sizable fund of motivation, not to
mention new, practical knowledge, then some
good must come of it.
Dean Fred H. Turner, 2 A E, University of
Illinois, as president of the Conference, pre-
sided over the sessions. Speakers and panel-
ists supported the Conference theme. The
opening luncheon and annual banquet were
highly inspiring events. Entertainment at the
banquet was provided by a colorful 150-voice
chorus billed as "Up With People!"
Emphasize Real Values
John Putman, A T O, in his banquet ad-
dress urged specifically that fraternities ought
to "teach morals, not politics," and the same
recommendation was offered by many of the
other speakers. That the answer to most of
the world's problems would evolve through
such a course was suggested by the well-
known newspaper columnist, Bob Considine,
who had just returned from a trip to Viet-
The Rev. Robert Palmer, A T O, of Lin-
coln, Neb., in his address returned to this
idea repeatedly. He said: "We have entered
into an era where instead of guidelines by
which to act, the individual is told that he is
a mature man and in any condition he finds
himself he should apply the principles of
love." As responsible leaders in our free soci-
ety, Dr. Palmer advised fraternity leaders to
develop within themselves a system "to go the
right way and do the right thing."
Dean Stanton Millet, A X A, of the Univer-
sity of Illinois laid down the same challenge
in much the same way, when he said: "Devel-
opment of character is one of the most impor-
tant functions of an educational system." He
said that the development of character is a
personal thing, that a man learns by doing,
and that when a man encounters an imper-
sonal environment over which he has no influ-
ence, he is faced with real problems. The
help of fraternity leaders is needed to meet
Robert Lakamp, IT K A, said that nothing
should have greater importance for the young
executive as he begins his career in business
than standards of conduct.
Dr. Frederick Kerschner, A T A, a profes-
sor of social history, is inclined to appraise
the fraternity system in the inert perspective
of social history and is unsure of the role of
the fraternity in a future that has yet to un-
fold itself. Obvious faults of the present are
that fraternities on campus do not do enough
to communicate, they lack self-knowledge,
they need better guidance materials, they
need a more full-fledged cooperation with the
college, and on the national level they lack
initiative in expanding the system as it ought
to be expanded.
Everett C. Lindsey's presentation of "Lead-
ership Motivation" was a dramatic demonstra-
tion. Members of the audience were not
merely told about Leadership Motivation; the
speaker gave them an experience in it. Lind-
sey, a personnel development executive for
Gulf Oil Company, said: "The strongest moti-
vating factor you in fraternities have is your
aim in life. Fraternity principles are char-
Richard R. Fletcher, S N, warned that it is
difficult to turn a problem into an asset with-
out hard, purposeful thinking. "First, identify
the problem in all its depth and dimensions.
Second, collect the resources which deal with
the problem. These are people, and not
things. Look for help from people close at
hand. Very few IFCs begin to tap the re-
sources close at hand."
The Conference Gold Medal for distin-
guished service to youth was awarded to two
national fraternity leaders, both of whom
have headed their groups: Roland Maxwell, *
K T, and Scott Turner, ^ Y. Both men are
former chairmen of the NIC.
The Grand Sweepstakes Award, better
known as "The Iron Man," given to the IFC
judged to be the most outstanding for service
to school, community, and fraternity, was won
by the University of Illinois. Illinois was cited
earlier for having the outstanding IFC in
Class III, which includes colleges and univer-
sities having 30 or more fraternities on cam-
pus. Winner in the Class I category, 1 to 15
fraternities. Southern Mississippi. In Class II,
16 to 29 fraternities, the winner was Kansas
State. Runner-up in Class I was Western Re-
serve; in Class III, Iowa State. There was no
runner-up in Class II.
The Col. Ralph W. Wilson Scholarship
Awards were announced for the first time in
honor of the longtime scholarship recorder of
the Conference who has retired. The Univer-
sity of Minnesota, represented by its IFC, was
first in the largest group with a grade point
percentage of 8.38 per cent over the all-men's
Business Before the House
That the setting in which fraternities oper-
ate is changing was reflected in several reso-
lutions passed by the NIC House of Dele-
gates. A resolution was passed to permit
chapters in institutions that have lost their ac-
creditation to retain their standing without
violation of NIC laws. Another was passed to
enable fraternities to continue their chapters
on an interim basis at an institution which is
discontinuing the recognition of fraternities
as a part of its educational system — provided
the administration has indicated that such
chapters need not be disaffiliated.
NIC by-laws were changed to permit mem-
ber fraternities to establish chapters in exten-
sion units, branches, or regional campuses of
colleges or universities otherwise accredited.

As an outstanding district president of the
IFC, Joe Martin of Florida attended the NIC.
He was impressed with the caliber of the fra-
ternity men there and enjoyed meeting the
many Sig Ep delegates. "Brotherhood really
hits home when you realize that you can eas-
ily pick out fellow Sig Eps at such a large
convention. Many of the men that I became
close friends with at the Cleveland Conclave
were also outstanding delegates in New
York." Martin said: "Although many of the
undergraduate men were exceptional leaders,
the alumni delegates provided the backbone
of the Conference. Both formally in the meet-
ings and informally while touring the city,
these men provided us with ideas which could
never be gained at home in the fraternity res-
Joe Carra of Stevens Tech comments as
follows: "The conference was primarily a
large-scale exchange of ideas. Just meeting
with men from other chapters was very help-
ful. Each person was able to pick up at least
a few better methods of doing various things
which he had not even considered before,
while at the same time giving forth new ideas
being practiced at his school or fraternity.
However, the Sig Ep luncheon was the high-
light, as it is always amazing to be able to
talk face-to-face with these leaders."
An unforgettable experience in brotherhood is provided at Ferris State's happy Sig Ep home.

PROF'S STRAW POLL
By JOHN CHACE
In the Cincinnati Enquirer
A University of Cincinnati political science
professor is convinced straw polling by ama-
tuers, if done properly, can forecast local
Dr. Eric Weise [Cincinnati, '54] a soft-spo-
ken 34-year-old native of Charleston, W. Va.,
now has conducted three such polls, using
University of Cincinnati volunteers and a few
paid workers, and he has been "right on the
nose" each time.
Dr. Weise is a UC graduate and obtained
his doctorate at Indiana University.
R. Eric Weise, Cincinnati, director of
Robert A. Taft Institute of Government
at his alma mater, has devised a better
method of forecasting election results.
Perhaps the most surprising poll was in the
recent councilmanic elections in Cincinnati.
There was a general feeling that Republi-
cans were in trouble.
About two months ago. Dr. Weise privately
told a friend that his poll showed Republi-
cans would elect five of the nine members of
the council — and probably six.
The election results showed six Republi-
Dr. Weise got started on the polling
through conversations with De Wassen-Czege,
a Hungarian refugee and a computer special-
ist now in Florida.
It is an involved formula that Dr. Weise
uses to select the persons to be polled. It in-
volves, among other things, income and past
voting patterns. As it has worked out, candi-
dates can learn their strong and weak areas
and can campaign accordingly.
Dr. Weise first started his poll last year
with the U. S. representative race in the first
Ohio District. Since then he has done it on
(lection of a state representative and for the
City Council election.
Weise's survey in the 1966 Congressional
election showed that Republican Robert Taft,
Jr. would knock off incumbent Democrat
John Gilligan by a 2-3 per cent margin.
Taft won the House seat by less than a 4
per cent edge in votes.
In projecting the outcome of the 70th Ohio
Representative District, Weise sampled 250
persons. The survey disclosed that James
Hausman would beat out Norman Murdock
by less than 1 per cent of votes cast. Murdock
won by a slight bit over 1 per cent.
Despite contradictory predictions by a
professional poll held here this summer con-
cerning the city council race, two of Weise's
polls showed Republicans winning five posi-
tions and very possibly six, with Charterites
taking two of the seats and the Democrats one.
The outcome was just that — six Republi-
cans, two Charterites, and one Democrat. The
professional poll, taken by an Eastern organi-
zation, said four Republicans, four Democrats
and one Charterite would be elected.
In the first poll held in August, 64.5 per
cent of 300 persons statistically chosen from
26 wards in the city revealed they wanted to
see new faces in council.
The persons were also questioned as to
what they thought issues in the council elec-
tion were and 80 per cent responded that civil
disorders were by far the prime matter.
The second poll conducted in October con-
firmed the projections of the first poll. Both
showed that incumbent Democrats Thomas
Luken and Phil Collins would lose their
seats and that Gilligan, William Keating and
Ralph Kohnen would be elected.
Keating, Republican, was a Common Pleas
Court judge and Kohnen, also a GOP mem-
ber, was a state representative.
Not only did the poll prove right again but
it also picked the order in which several of
the candidates would finish.
Weise served as a campaign manager of
Kohnen and one of his reasons for taking the
surveys was to discover where Kohnen's weak-
nesses and strengths in the city where and
what issues he needed to dwell upon.
The professor feels that the poll helped
Kohnen gain a council position and can help
other candidates to map their strategies and
eventually get elected to a post.
"The polls give us information on how to
upset the whole ball game," he said.
So Cincinnati may now have its answer to
the Gallup Poll.

plans in the Office of the Deputy Chief of
Staff for Logistics from June, 1966, to October,
1967. During this time, the general isolated
problem areas, initiated actions to correct de-
ficiencies in the logistic system, and expedited
the planning required for future systems.
His major contribution was a study he
made from September, 1966, to March, 1967,
on the Army Logistic System in Support of
Forces in Southeast Asia. This study ana-
lyzed support requirements for all classes of
supply as well as maintenance requirements
of U. S. combat forces in Southeast Asia. He
also directed the planning for a complete re-
construction of the communication lines in
Europe for U. S. and allied forces.
General Jones was responsible for develop-
ing numerous other studies which included:
The Army Logistic System in Support of the
U. S. Army, Europe; The Offshore Logistic
Base Study; The Post Hostilities Support
Plan and the U. S. /Federal Republic of Ger-
many Combat Logistic Support System.
His new assignment is as deputy command-
ing general of the 1st Logistical Command in
Vietnam. Recipient of the Bronze Star Medal

'Dear Old Fraternity, all my life through . . ." Rhode Island Sig Eps close Renewal Weekend.
,,.««!MaiwA'-S«ri^ ^', %
good of the Order
On the weekend of December 15-17, a semes-
ter of growth and accomplishment was cele-
brated in the first annual Rhode Island Beta
Renewal Weekend, a program for under-
graduates, alumni, and guests covering three
days of academy sessions, lectures, movies,
and parties. The purpose of the weekend was
to acquaint interested alumni with the chap-
ter's current progress and programs at first
hand and to provide chapter level academy
sessions for future chapter leaders. The week-
end also afforded time for general brainstorm-
ing sessions which provided everyone with the
opportunity for sharing new and different
ideas for improving all areas of the fraterni-
ty's life. The essence of the weekend is per-
haps best stated in the words of the Renewal
Weekend Program which said: "In initiating
this idea of a Renewal Weekend for our chap-
ter, two major objectives have guided our ef-
forts. They are, simply continuity and creativ-
ity; the two fundamental attributes without
which no institution can long hope to survive.
. . . The fraternity must examine itself in the
light of the context within which it finds it-
self, and welcome new, bold, and adventurous
ideas, or else it will surely perish."
On hand to assist in this undertaking were
District Governor Trueman L. Sanderson, and
Staff Representative George Fedoroff, as well
as University, alumni, and chapter officials.
The schedule of events began on Friday
night with the annual Christmas party. Satur-
day's session included an interesting and in-
formative rush program and rush clinic pre-
sented by Rush Chairman Mike Burke. The
chapter's year-old and highly successful
"computer card rush" was discussed at great
length. Following an informal luncheon at the

chapter, sessions were held on the executive
board and cabinet, the office of president,
pledge education, and Ritual Renew^al. A
highlight of the pledge program was the new
pledge supplement to be more or less com-
posed by the Pledge Class itself. Saturday
evening brought yet another Christmas party
with gift-giving and singing.
The Sunday session, which was aimed more
at the alumni and guests, got off to a rousing
start with the film, "A Day in the Life,"
which was filmed and acted by the members
of the house and depicted a day at Sig Ep.
An academy session on the Alumni Board
and corporation did much to dispel the mis-
understanding which can arise between the
undergraduates and the alumni, and a panel
discussion of the possibilities and problems of
breaking ground for a new chapter house
were highlights of the day. During the breaks
between sessions, there were coffee hours and
displays, and vdth the help of Chapter Serv-
ices Director Chuck White, a small fraternity
store was set up to sell the various items
available through National Headquarters.
The weekend came to a close with a can-
dlelight banquet at which time brothers Paul
St. Jean and Ray Stillwell were commended
as outstanding committee chairmen in their
respective areas of pledge education and
public relations. Staff Representative George
FedorofI gave a short talk and the festivities
came to an end with the Anthem and a sense
of renewal best typified in the motto of the
weekend, "Brotherhood Lasts Forever."
IN THE FIELD
There are already hundreds of Sig Eps, partic-
ularly in the areas in which Robert C. Lynch,
Miami (Ohio), '67, and George E. Fedoroff, Cali-
fornia, '67, have been calling on chapters, for
whom these staff representatives need no introduc-
tion. Many brothers who attended the Cleveland
Conclave and also the dedication of the new
Headquarters Building at Richmond had the op-
Traveler George E. Fedoroff, California.

portunity of meeting these men and of talking
over problems with them.
Staff representatives with whom Bob and
George share visitation and counseling responsi-
bilities are James D. Fein, Cincinnati, '67, Rich-
ard W. Myers, Tennessee Wesleyan, and Steven
A. Sullivan, San Jose State.
Not only in Sigma Phi Epsilon, but in most of
the fraternities — sororities, too — field secretaries
come and go at a rapid rate.
Meanwhile Donald L. Tanner, Memphis State,
'67, who joined the staff as a representative last
January, has a new position which will keep him
closer to Headquarters. Since the last Journal,
he was named Director of Program Development,
a newly created position which carries with it the
responsibilities suggested by the title.
Bob Lynch served as alumni relations chair-
man, rush chairman, as well as president of his
chapter. On campus his activities included: Fresh-
man Counselor, Residence Hall senator. Phi Eta
Sigma treasurer, Kappa Phi Kappa secretary, Om-
icron Delta Kappa, associate editor of the orienta-
tion publications for freshman, Senior Class cabi-
net, and chairman of the IFC constitution revision

and has taught Bible school and servpd as presi-
dent of Youth Fellowship. His major at Miami
was social studies.
In addition to being a versatile sports fan, Bob
likes books and has a leaning toward journalism.
George Fedoroff's subject interests at Cali-
fornia were history and political science. Leader-
ship experience in the chapter was gained in the
offices of alumni chairman, rush chairman, secre-
tary, controller, and vice-president.
Extremely active on campus, he was a member
of the council of his class for four years, was cho-
sen outstanding first year man and named to the
Senior Hall of Fame. He was a member of the

Florida Sig Eps set the example for other
campus fraternities by revising their pledge pro-
gram. Junior and senior pledges with above aver-
age grades are offered special advanced training
which allows them to become eligible for initia-
tion earlier than previously required. Suggested
by the dean of men and the IFC, the plan is de-
signed to adjust the fraternity system to the large
number of junior college transfer students cur-
rently enrolling at state universities. Studies have
shown that such students usually have less time to
devote to pledge activities because of more diffi-
cult upper-division courses. A mature, farsighted
pledge program aimed specifically at juniors and
seniors is a necessity if the Greek system is to re-
main strong in the future.
At Florida, the advanced class is handled by
an assistant pledge trainer. Pledge meetings are
organized to allow the special class to meet with

the regular pledges for all subjects except frater-
nity history and related topics. This unites the
two groups into one spirited body. Brothers are
requested to give special help to the advanced
class, always emphasizing brotherhood, for if an
ounce of brotherhood is sacrificed by dividing the
pledge classes, the program is a failure. Initial re-
sults show that the Florida program is well worth
the efforts. — Charles Harris
Illinois Sig Eps have undertaken a plan to up-
date and "computerize" their alumni addresses.
Through the work of Greg Bates and Jim
McGreevy, and the use of University of Illinois
computers, Illinois Alpha's 104O alumni, including
honoraries and affiliates, each have two computer
cards on file. These cards make it possible to ob-
tain "dick tapes" (address labels) which can be
applied to envelopes quickly and easily. In addi-
tion, it is possible to sort addresses by alphabeti-
cal order, state, chapter number, and even zip
The use of computers in alumni relations is a
small part of a completely renovated alumni pro-
gram. The chapter now has a schedule where two
letters, and two issues of the Sig Ep Indian are
mailed to each alumnus during the year. Due to
the large number of letters sent, a nonprofit orga-
nization postal permit has been obtained so that
each piece of mail costs one and a quarter cents.
Computer cards are useless unless they are pro-
grammed with accurate information. By inquiring
at the post office, alumni agencies, and college rec-
ord offices, we found more than 175 lost ad-
dresses. By looking through old chapter corre-
spondence, and records, we have reduced the
number of missing brothers to 60, and only the
groundwork has been laid! — John Brubaker
Kansas Stale Sig Eps have updated their
alumni relations by changing their alumni files
over to data-processing. A complete set of IBM
cards has been punched for all 856 names on the
chapter roll. Each card contains information of
the member's name, pin number, and address, in-
eluding zip code. These cards allow the chapter to
produce an almost instantaneous list of alumni
which can be arranged in any desired order. This
is a great aid in preparing mailing lists for news-
letters to the alumni. This modern system has
been made possible through the use of the data-
processing equipment in the department of engi-
neering at Kansas State University.
Kearney State Sig Eps initiated Robert
Young, instructor in business, as an honorary
member. He is a chapter adviser.
Lehigh Sig Eps held their sixth annual Fine
Arts Seminar in December. The discussions ini-
tiated three years ago involve topics which cannot
really be taught in any one course such as the im-
pact of technology on morality, the necessity of
returning waste to the soil, to mention only a few.
Sixty undergraduates attended with discussions
led by prominent University professors and
oflBcials. An attempt was made to have someone
from every major field so that, for example, the
ecologist could discover what the philosopher or
minister thought about a certain topic.
— Jim Dorris
Maryland Sig Eps instituted a Spirit and
Unity Committee last spring. The purpose is to
keep the morale of the chapter high throughout
Initiates of the chapter are automatically made
members, along with any other actives who wish
to participate. The committee publishes a small
paper. The Tissue, which is meant only for the
undergraduates' eyes. The paper is brief and hu-
morous, and draws attention to both the achieve-
ments and idiosyncrasies of members.
— Pete Ruehl
Michigan Slate Sig Eps have recognized the
outstanding service and effort of Eldon R. Nonna-
maker, Ohio Northern, and Robert J. Woods,
Michigan State, by awarding each term in their
honor a pledge scholarship and outstanding
pledge trophy. The trophies are awarded at the
rush party to the pledge with the highest grade
point during his pledgeship and to the pledge
who has contributed the most talent to the chap-
ter. Fall term recipients were Bruce Gillespie,
pledge scholarship, and Thomas Fox, outstanding
pledge. Michigan Epsilon feels that these awards
have a dual purpose — alumni recognition and in-
centives for the pledge.
The Michigan State chapter's pledge program
emphasizes chapter operations. When the pledge
is required to work with individual officers and
cabinet members, he not only aids each area of
operations but at the same time is effectively in-
troduced to the responsibility and duties of each
position. This method is rewarding to both the
pledge and the chapter in that both can see a job
well done and know that they had a hand in mak-
ing it possible. Michigan State Sig Eps hope that
other chapters will see the merits of this aspect of
pledge education. — Terry Mitter
Montana Sig Eps present the new pledges of
the seven campus sororities roses. After the fall
quarter formal sorority rush week, each group is
contacted to find out the number of new pledges.
An activation mug is filled with the proper num-
ber of roses and presented, during a serenade, to
each group of pledges at their respective houses.
Sig Ep is the only campus living group which
still continues this old University of Montana tra-
dition. It leaves a strong and lasting impression
on the freshman girls and does much to promote
the house name on campus.
Parsons Sig Eps have instituted a service tro-
phy to be awarded to the Greek organization that
contributes the most to campus activities and stu-
At Parsons, during the fall rush, questionnaires
were filled out by all rushees. The responses were
reviewed by the alumni board and all the pledges'
parents were written a letter notifying them that
their son was a pledge in Sig Ep. Also, an article
was sent to each pledge's hometown newspaper.
Parsons Sig Eps in maintaining leadership on
campus cultivate the support of the administra-
tion and faculty whose Sig Ep members include:
Cornell C. Clarke, Ph.D., dean of students; Victor
R. Rail, professor of mathematics; William
MacFarlane, college financial manager; Tony Ye-
lovich, assistant football coach and head wrestling
coach; and 0. B. Nelson, head basketball coach.
South Carolina Sig Eps have initiated a 7:00
to 10:00 P.M. study hall for all pledges and any
brothers who wish to participate. In addition, the
entire brotherhood observes quiet hours nightly
between 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. This program
has helped the house improve its grade-point aver-
age. — J. J. Smith

"By and large, they are better informed and
show greater curiosity about the world and its fu-
ture than their critical elders. Any bright young
person comes directly to the point. He or she
wants to know, to appraise the facts and reach a
conclusion. Unlike politicians who fuzz up the is-
sues, our youth can lay them bare, and does."
After a humorous short film starring W. C.
Fields, the dinner party was adjourned to the liv-
ing room where a reception was held for the
alumni. In addition to Grand President Zollinger,
prominent guests included Florida Alpha alumni
oflBcers Huber Hurst, Lucius B. Gravely, and
David Hendon; Gainesville Alumni Association
president Alvin Alsobrook; former district gover-
nor William G. Cross; and Dr. Robert Carson,
faculty adviser. Also present were Paul Selle;
Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives
Ralph Turlington; Kodak representative Paul
Grigsby from Rochester, N.Y. ; and chapter
alumni Irwin Clayton and John Nealy.

only a few blocks from the Florida chapter house,
was unable to attend the banquet because of ill-
ness. Alumni and actives signed a giant get-well

Approximately a hundred brothers attended the
Founders' Day dinner of the Denver Alumni
Chapter on November 3. Chief speaker was Harry
Carlson, a member of the board of regents of the
University of Colorado.
Carlson stressed his conviction that campuses
that do not have fraternities are poor in spirit
compared to those where good chapters work dih-
gently for the purposes of the institution and for
the wholesome development of their own mem-
bers. However, there are elements which creep
into the life of poorly led fraternity chapters
which corrupt, he said.
Election of officers saw Jack Whitt chosen as
president, Chester M. Schrepferman, vice-presi-
dent; Harlan V. Meyer, secretary-treasurer; and
Charles R. Patch, historian. The position of histo-
rian is new. It was created in order to make
someone responsible for maintaining the member-
ship file, making changes in it, and also forward-
ing address changes to Headquarters. Not least,
the historian will be expected to preserve material
relative to the founding and operation of the Den-
ver Alumni Chapter.
It is hoped that all Sig Eps in the Denver met-
ropolitan area, and those moving in or out, will
keep the historian informed.
Please address notices and items of interest to
the Historian at 2244 Grape Street, Denver, Colo.

The third annual Sig Ep Showcase Banquet
was held November 4, at the Mission Inn Res-
taurant, 7508 W. 63rd, Shawnee-Mission, Kan.,
where regular monthly dinner meetings of the
Greater Kansas City Alumni Chapter are held
on the second Tuesday of each month. A good
crowd of alumni was on hand to welcome the ac-
tive chapter representatives. All 14 Kansas and

the Cleveland Conclave was re-presented during
the festivities which followed the dinner. Presen-
tation was made by Ken Van Scoy, who served as

The highlight of the evening was an inspiring
talk by Brother Lynn Faris (Illinois Alpha and
Massachusetts Gamma) . Lynn is well known in
the Kansas City area as sportscaster for radio sta-
tion KCMO and TV station KCMO-TV. It was a
chance remark Lynn made during a football
broadcast which brought to the attention of the
local alumni chapter that he is a Sig Ep. After
some amusing remarks about the "late" Kansas
City Athletics baseball team, Lynn shifted the em-
phasis of his talk to the fraternity. In the course
of his travels about the country broadcasting
games from college towns he has had the opportu-
nity to visit many chapter houses, and, as he put
it, he always makes it a point to "search out the
Red Door and drop in to say hello."
He made a strong plea, largely directed to the
active members present, for closer ties between
actives and alumni. This could start with an en-
thusiastic greeting for alumni who visit the chap-
ter house. A lackadaisical "I don't believe I've
met you" and a reluctant handshake are not
enough, Lynn said. A hearty and sincere welcome
— "My name is Joe Smith. Welcome to the Sig Ep
house!" — and a firm grip will make the brother
want to return again. "Actives have to be sales-
men where alums are concerned just as much as
they do during undergraduate rush," he said.
Brother Faris' remarks were enthusiastically re-
ceived by the Sig Eps present and he was given a
standing ovation. —Dick Southall
The Little Rock Alumni Association was

Involvement at Lawrence
SIX Lawrence University Sig Eps were recently
credited with nabbing a 36-year-old ex-convict
fleeing from a burglary at a downtown Appleton
drugstore. The six, now known as the Sig Ep
"Crime-fighters," were Earl Tryon, John Roberts,
Neil Russel, Rod Buchen, Tom Hartley, and
Douglas Fulrath. They were making their way
from Jim's Place to the Cozy Corner Inn, when
the drugstore owner, who was chasing the burglar
down an alley, saw the boys, and shouted for
them to stop the burglar. Courageously, they
formed a line across the alley, and apprehended
the burglar as he ran into them. The man had re-
portedly been quite violent, but once in the grip
of the six Sig Eps, he gave up with little struggle.
The six received commendations from the Ap-
pleton Police Department, as well as two large
baskets of fruit from the grateful drugstore

library at Penn
AT PENNSYLVANIA, Roland Kramer,'19, started
a drive to establish a house library with a dona-
tion of two cases of books. Included in the dona-
tion was a complete seventy-one volume set of the
Harvard Classics, the complete works of Alexandre
Dumas, and Churchill's six-volume history of the
Second World War along with some fourteen
The donation came as a result of a call for
books by the Penn Delta Foundation to stock a
chapter library. At that meeting, $300 was appro-
priated for the purchase of large reference books
such as the Random House Dictionary, The Hand-
book of Chemistry and Physics, and other refer-
ence works commonly used by undergraduates.
Kramer's gift not only provided a substantial
basis for the house library, but he also supplied
the bookcases. Plans for the new house will in-
corporate a Chapter Room-Library.
