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 
over. 

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. 
— D. Carr Whitehead, Syracuse, '37, 10105 Har- 
new East, Oak Lawn, 111. 

Dedication Footnote 

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 Jersey. 

New York Delta, RPI, was represented by 5 
brothers. 

The Seton Hall Colony was represented by 4 
members. 

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 
way. 

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 
much." 



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- 
ternity men. 

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- 
ternity. 

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 
Gainesville, Fla.

1967 All-Si^ Ep Football Team 



By ALLAN FERGUSON 

DELAWARE 



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.

North Texas State 



Al Hatfield, quarterback 
Monmouth 



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- 
America selection. 

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 
champions. 

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- 
town, Pa. 

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 
and ACS. 



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- 
nical player. 

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 
team. 

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 
valuable player. 

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; 
Roger Chapman, Cleveland Heights; William 
O'Neill, Cleveland Heights; Peter Loomis, 
Columbus; Michael Bannon, Youngstov^m; 
Dennis Eyestone, Sycamore; Michael Oxner, 
Dayton; Robert Scott, Middletown; Gregory 
Justice, Ironton; Jim Kincaid, Dayton; Jay 
Lytle, Middlefield; Stephen Ferrell, Green- 
wich; Robert Wuerdeman, Cincinnati; Ed- 
ward Molnar, Lorain; Robert lozzia, Hacken- 
sack, N.J.; Paul Augusten, Birmingham, 
Mich.; Grant Hesser, Cincinnati; Douglas 
Bond, Dayton; Jerald Brenner, Akron; T. 
Gene Lockard, Columbus; Michael Bowers, 
Dayton; James Goodman, Akron; Henry Me- 
rola, Waltham, Mass. 

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 
University campus. 

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.

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- 
quet. 

The Campus 

Ohio University has a rich heritage. Es- 
tablished in 1804, it was the first institution 
of higher learning in the Northwest Territory, 
and has grown with the United States and the 

Beasley Convocation Center is scheduled 
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 
Tau Delta, Delta Upsilon, Lambda Chi 
Alpha, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Epsilon Pi, Phi 
Gamma Delta, Phi Kappa Sigma, Phi Kappa 
Tau, Phi Kappa Theta, Phi Sigma Delta, Pi 
Kappa Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma 
Chi, Sigma Nu, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and 
Theta Chi. Sororities are Alpha Delta Pi, 
Alpha Epsilon Phi, Alpha Gamma Delta, 
Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Xi Deha, Chi 
Omega, Delta Sigma Theta, Kappa Delta, Phi 
Mu, Pi Beta Phi, Sigma Kappa, Theta Phi 
Alpha, Zeta Tau Alpha. 

Fraternities and sororities are in the pro- 

12 



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. 

The Colony 

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,"

Good Scholarship— 

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- 
low through. 

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) 

14 



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- 
ence. 

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 



By v. G. DIJBACH 

DIRECTOR OF SCHOLARSHIP EMERITUS 



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 
their hay." 

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 
Portland. 

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- 
nity outstanding. 

Oregon Alpha Chapter at OSU in Corvallis 
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- 
tors. 

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."

T 



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- 
ful run. 

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. 

16 



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 
contributor. 

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. 





Darryl Gless: 
Rhodes Scholar 

University of Nebraska senior 
English major to go to Oxford 



DARRYL GLESS, chapter vice-president at Ne- 
braska, a senior English major, carrying 
a grade-point average of 4.0 in pre-law, was 
named a Rhodes Scholar in December. He 
was one of four scholars selected from 12 
candidates from Nebraska and five other states 
to study for a two-year term at Oxford Uni- 
versity, England, in any course of his choos- 
ing. 

Gless comes from Schuyler, Neb., he is a 
Nebraska Career Scholar and was awarded 
a Regents' Scholarship. He is a member of 
Phi Beta Kappa and has served as secretary 
of the IFC and on the Student Senate. He 
enjoys weight-lifting in his spare time. 

Gless's interviewers found him to have "a 
balanced soundness of character, intellect, ca- 
pacity for leadership, and physical vigor, 
coupled with some clear quality of distinc- 
tion" — as the terms of Cecil Rhodes' will stip- 
ulate a Scholar must have.

A SEASON 

FOR 

BROTHERHOOD 




J. Stephen Hank, Miami (Ohio) 



M 



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- 
perience. 

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 

18 



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, 



Students

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.

Return to Duke— 
and Other Progress 



THE Duke University chapter is scheduled 
to return to the fold in April or May, 
while recent months have already witnessed 
the installation of two new chapters and two 
new colonies. 

The colony at Jacksonville University was 
installed at Florida Theta Chapter on Febru- 
ary 3, 1968, as No. 169. Grand President J. E. 
Zollinger presented the charter as 75 men 
were initiated. 

The colony at Chico State College was in- 
stalled as California Iota Chapter on Febru- 
ary 10, 1968, as No. 170. Grand President 
Zollinger again officiated as 51 members 
signed the charter. 

The new colonies were installed earlier. 
Sigma Epsilon Colony was launched at Morris 
Harvey College, Charleston, W.Va., on Decem- 
ber 9, with National Director R. Eric Weise, 
District Governor George A. Brown, III, and 
Staff Representative Robert C. Lynch par- 
ticipating. 

A new colony was launched at Georgia 
Southern College, Statesboro, on January 9. 
Staff Representative Richard W. Myers was 
assisted in the colonization by Howard Bridges, 
Valdosta State, '67, who will be the counselor 
and pledge educator. 

The impetus to revive the Duke chapter, 
which existed from 1909 to 1960, was imparted 
by past Grand President Bedford W. Black, 
District Governor Edward L. Cloyd, and Staff 
Representative Richard W. Myers when they 
traveled to Durham, N.C., on January 12 and 
pledged 24 men. 

The fraternity system has existed at Duke 
since 1872 when Alpha Tau Omega came there 
as the pioneer. Today the campus shelters 
19 NIC fraternities and 13 NPC sororities. 
The administration requires fraternities and 
sororities to occupy college residence units. 

The North Carolina Gamma roster includes 
the names of 457 brothers. One of its most 
distinguished members, now deceased, was 
United States Senator Willis Smith.

THE Monmouth chapter, winner of a "best 
chapter" award at the Cleveland Conclave, 
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 
Publications," with a clever photo of the four 
star journalists involved. 

Two timely editorials, a cartoon, a message 
from President Duncan Wimpress of the Col- 
lege, and stories about the housemother and 
the alumni presentation award round out 
page 2. 

The remaining pages maintain photo and 
word coverage at the highest level of individ- 
ual and group achievement. Alumni are writ- 
ten about as though they are still closely re- 
lated to the chapter, which indeed they are. 
This is an asset which altogether too few 
chapters own. 

The Georgia Alpha Red Door, a model 
newspaper in so many ways, does not have 
the extensive alumni relations coverage of its 
chief rivals, though it is good. Winner of the 
Frayser Award for two consecutive years — 
1964-65 and 1965-66 — this newspaper has 
kept the same hot pace under editor Spike 
Rippberger first set by Chapter president 
John Kenneth Smith when he was editor. 
Make-up, newswriting, headline writing, and 
selection and cropping of photos are meticu-

may well be SPiEL of Tennessee, edited by

Those chapters that can claim unbroken 
publication of their newspapers are aware 
that uninterrupted alumni relations are a nec- 
essary part of chapter strength. There are 
chapters that know they do not have strength 
and it is tragic when they have too little initi- 
ative to ask their alumni to help them.

HEADQUARTERS HEARTBEAT 



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 
Fraternity. 

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. 

You can help by sending all correct addresses of lost Sig Eps to: Alumni Services 
Director, P.O. Box 1901, Richmond, Virginia 23215. 

Help IVanted for Areiiives You may be able to help in the quest for items of his- 
torical value to the Fraternity. These articles will be displayed in the archives or library of 
Headquarters. This is the first such campaign, because previous headquarters facilities did 
not have adequate space for archives display or storage. (You may be interested to know 
there were ten Fraternity offices or buildings prior to the newly dedicated Sigma Phi Epsilon 
Headquarters.) 

Should you have any of the following items, please contact the Executive Director, P.O. 
Box 1901, Richmond, Virginia 23215: 

Photographs (to complete the display in the Grand Presidents Hall) : Grand President Robert R. 
Oliver (1905) ; Grand President Nelson R. Cooney (1906) 



22 



Journals (to furnish back-up sets to the Headquarters complete set extant) : Bound issues, 1904 
through 1946 (two of each needed) ; Single issues, 1904 forward 

Conclave group photographs (to complete the archives exhibit): 1903, Richmond; 1905, Pitts- 
burgh, Pa.; 1906, Philadelphia; 1907, Richmond; 1912, Detroit; 1914, Atlanta; 1916, Rich- 
mond; 1921, Des Moines; 1923, Columbus, Ohio; 1932, Chattanooga; 1935, Denver; 1937, 
Cleveland. 

We also have a Founder's badge, given to us by Brother W. Hugh Carter, which will be 
displayed with other mementos and records of the Fraternity's earliest days. We will, of 
course, be delighted to have additional such items which you might have or to learn of their 
whereabouts. 

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 
Executive Director. 

Heart Fund February is Heart Fund month and the Heart Association is counting on 
your help in supporting the work of the Association.

THE MEANING 
OF BROTHERHOOD 




HOW RELEVANT 
IS THE RITUAL? 

By JACK WHITFORD 

RHODE ISLAND 

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 
now?" 

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 
and meaning. 

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- 
turity. 

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- 



24 



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- 
thing, does it have to say that is relevant 
today? I offer the following general points for 
consideration. 

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 




On Behalf of the Heart

Denny, now executive director for the Heart 
Association in eastern Connecticut, arranged for 
the cake-cutting publicity which is to be used na- 
tionally. He also had Dr. White as the guest 
speaker for the chapter's annual meeting; it was 
the largest attended Heart Association meeting in 
Connecticut's history. Dr. White is a founder and 
former president of the American Heart Associa-

physician when the former president was stricken 
by his heart attack. 



from our ceremonies of graduation, confirma- 
tion, marriage and what have you, that they 
have deteriorated largely to meaningless mass 
routine. We are literally starved for need of 
individualistic and meaningful ritual elements 
in our lives and the absurdity and sterility of 
our predicament becomes ever more evident 
in the drab production-line quality of our 
daily lives. 

And yet amidst all the psychic sterility 
which we mutely allow to be dumped upon 
our heads, the altar of Sigma Phi Epsilon 
stands, like a fountain in the wasteland. That 
it so stands, let us give heartfelt thanks; to 
the end that it may ever so stand, let us bend 
every energy of our hearts.

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 
Our Opportunities." 

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- 
nam. 

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 



26 



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 
these problems. 

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- 
acter-building principles." 

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." 



Awards 

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 
undergraduate average. 

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. 

New NIC officers are: President, Louis L. 
Roth, 2 N; president-elect, Zeke L. Loflin, 
S; vice-presidents, Tozier Brown, A X A,

All-Sig Ep Luncheon 

Present at the Sig Ep luncheon at the Stat- 
ler Hilton in addition to undergraduate IFC 
delegates were two past Grand Presidents, 
Headquarters officials, district governors, stu- 
dent deans, faculty advisers, and alumni. 

Lewis A. Mason, Syracuse, represented the 
National Board of Directors. Bedford Black, 
Wake Forest, past Grand President, District

Jr., Western Michigan; Alumni Service Di- 
rector Frank R. Marrs, Marshall; Staff Rep- 
resentatives Donald L. Tanner, Memphis 
State, and George Fedoroff, California. Jour- 
nal editor John Robson also covers the NIC 
for Bantams Greek Exchange. Donald E. Kin- 
dle, Cincinnati, was a member of the local 
committee. W. Stewart Minton, Miami 
(Ohio), now assistant dean at the University 
of Kentucky, is also on the Academy faculty. 
Walter G. Fly was Grand President in 1947.

Undergraduate Views 

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- 
idence." 

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."

PROF'S STRAW POLL 
PICKS WINDERS 

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 
election outcomes. 

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- 
cans elected. 

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 



»o 



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

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

a Forward Air Controller. He flew 423 com- 
bat missions, totaling 773 combat hours. 
Flying low and alone over enemy territory in 
an unarmed single engine 0-1 observation air- 
craft. Captain Amend's job was to locate and 
identify enemy troops, mark their location 
with a smoke rocket, and then request and di- 
rect an air strike by U. S. tactical aircraft. 

The citation for the Distinguished Flying 
Cross reads, "Capt. Dale N. Amend distin- 
guished himself by heroism while participat- 
ing in aerial flight as a Forward Air Control- 
ler near Pleiku Air Base, Vietnam, from May 
17, 1966 to May 24, 1966. During this time he 
responded to three emergency situations in 
which special forces patrols were ambushed 
by vastly superior hostile forces. Disregarding 
his own safety, he successfully directed nu- 
merous combat air support missions, enabling 
the friendly patrols to successfully conclude 
their reconnaissance mission."

'Dear Old Fraternity, all my life through . . ." Rhode Island Sig Eps close Renewal Weekend. 




,,.««!MaiwA'-S«ri^ ^', % 



good of the Order 



RENEWAL WEEKEND 

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." 



FAMILIAR FACES 
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-

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 
committee. 

Bob is a member of the Presbyterian Church 
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 
Rally Committee, Senior Week chairman, and as- 
sistant manager of the yearbook. 

George is a member of the Russian Orthodox 
Church and has served as altar boy. As his hob- 
bies he lists sailing, hiking, classical music, and 
reading.

Bill Daily, Sr., chapter adviser at Iowa State 
for many years, has been forced to resign from 
his position because of poor health. He has been 
an inspiration to the chapter and a hard worker 
for the promotion of Sig Ep. Maurice Kramer, 
Dean of Foreign Students at Iowa State, is the 
new chapter adviser. 

Oklahoma State Sig Eps were very pleased 
to have Dr. Carl Reed recently accept the position 
of chapter faculty adviser. Dr. Reed, who received 
his B.S. from Oklahoma State, is a professor in 
the School of Engineering and is a real favorite 
of the men of the house. 



PLAIVS AXD PROCEDURES 
FOR RETTER OPERATION 

Boston brothers held a complete house evalu- 
ation meeting, where they discussed the duties 
and obligations of every office and committee, 
bringing out chapter weaknesses and faults, and 
considering all worthwhile suggestions that might 
make for a better-run fraternity. 

Bradley Sig Eps have won recognition from 
both the University and the IPC for their new ap- 
proach to training pledges. This can be shown by 
three semesters of 100 per cent activation, and an 
over-all activation rate of 87 per cent in the last 
seven semesters. 

Davis and Elkins Sig Eps sponsored a dinner 
and reception for the famous lecturer. Bill Sands. 
A former inmate of San Quentin prison, and later 
a rich, successful businessman. Bill Sands is now 
devoting his energy and talent to organizing reha- 
bilitation programs to help convicts and ex-con- 
victs. He has lectured extensively throughout the 
United States on the prevention of juvenile delin- 
quency, prison reform, and rehabilitation. Sands 
lectured at the College. — Jim Rimmer 

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

Bob Cook sets good example in how to study. 



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 
code. 

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- 



43 



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 
the semester. 

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- 

44 



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- 
dent relations. 

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

ALUMNI 



BIRTHDAYS 

The birthday celebration in which Sig Ep un- 
dergraduates and alumni join hearts throughout 
the nation is Founders' Day, November 1. This 
day marks the birth of Sigma Phi Epsilon at 
Richmond College, Virginia, where 12 young men 
laid the foundation of a new brotherhood, 66 
years ago. 

To the undergraduates and alumni of the chap- 
ters, the individual birthday celebrations are also 
of great importance. During the 1967-68 session, 
26 chapters have observed, or plan to observe, an- 
niversaries ranging from the 30th to 65th. These 
are as follows: 

In September, Arkansas, 60th; Lehigh, 60th; 
Cornell, 55th. 

In December, Alabama, 40th; and Michigan, 
55th. 

In January, Ohio State, 60th. 

In February, Iowa Wesleyan, 55th; Montana, 
50th; Oregon State, 50th; Kansas State, 50th. 

In March, Kentucky, 35th; West Virginia, 
65th. 

In April, Worcester Tech, 30th; Muhlenberg, 
30th; Colorado Mines, 45th; Rensselaer, 30th; 
Kansas, 45th; Mississippi State, 30th; Bucknell, 
30th; Westminster, 30th.

nia, 40th. 




Grand President Ed Zollinger Uettj and 
Outstanding Florida alumnus Paul Sella

Grand President Ed Zollinger presented the 
keynote address at Florida's Founders' Day ban- 
quet, October 31. Florida alumni and actives 
gathered at the fraternity residence for before-din- 
ner punch and the relating of old memories. After

L. Phillips Foundation to active chapter secretary 
Charles Harris. President Zollinger's speech cen- 
tered around the continuing growth of Sigma Phi 
Epsilon and the challenge of the future. 

Brother Zollinger said he had great faith in to- 
day's college youth and quoted remarks recently 
made by John S. Knight, the well-known newspa- 
per publisher. Knight said: 

"Considering the environment in which they 
have been raised, my wonderment is that our 
young people have turned out so well. 

"The public print and television's glaring eye 
are focused upon the hippies and the freebies 
even as a new generation of responsible, intelli- 
gent youngsters is making new marks in excel- 
lence. 

"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. 

Founder Thomas Vaden McCaul, who lives 
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 
card which was sent to his home after the recep- 
tion. 



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. 
— Charles R. Patch 



The Long Beach Alumni Chapter observed 
Founders' Day with a dance at the Sheraton Inn 
in Huntington Beach. The dance was the initial 
function for the current year, and the response of 
interested alumni was encouraging. 

While many of the members of the Long Beach 
Alumni Chapter are from the Long Beach chap- 
ter, all interested alumni of the Long Beach area 
are welcome. Each month the member alumni re- 
ceive the Spectator, the newsletter of the chapter 
which keeps them posted. — Bob Kopfstein

Homecoming at Georgia Tech, with its tradi- 
tional displays, parades, races, this year was also 
the occasion for the celebration of Georgia Al- 
pha's 60th anniversary. 

John M. Trapnell, one of Georgia Alpha's 
seven founders, was the guest of honor at the 
60th Anniversary Banquet. Over one hundred 
alumni were present with their wives to enjoy the 
chicken dinner. 

After the 19 to 7 victory over the Blue Devils 
in Saturday afternoon's football game, the alumni 
were able to get together and talk about old times 
in the bar over refreshments provided by the 
brothers. 

A meeting of the Sig Ep Builders Incorpo- 
rated, followed by a meeting of the Board of Di- 
rectors of the corporation, was held after the foot- 
ball game. Discussed were matters of importance 
to the functioning of the chapter, both present 
and future. 

Saturday night the brothers and alumni jour- 
neyed to the Alpha Kappa Psi lodge for the third 
annual Homecoming Green Lantern Party, to 
dance out the remaining hours of Homecoming 
1967. 

Mississippi Slate Sig Eps held a Founders' 
Day banquet on November 1. Guests at the ban- 
quet included two alumni who are faculty mem- 
bers: Dr. William Boyd and Dr. Lloyd P. Jacks. 
This banquet is to be an annual affair at Missis- 
sippi Beta. 

Members of the Puget Sound Alumni Chap- 
ter gathered for the Founders' Day dinner on No- 
vember 6 at the Arctic Club, Seattle, and heard 
an inspiring speech by Past Grand President 
Frank Hamack, an alumnus of the George Wash- 
ington chapter. The retired University of Wash- 
ington faculty member who has three sons in 
Sigma Phi Epsilon, in his remarks included a re- 
port on the Cleveland Conclave, which he at- 
tended as Puget Sound's delegate. 

Also included on the program was a report on 
the new house and membership by Washington 
chapter president Dave Gilbert. Ken Cosby and 
Larry Waldron reported on the construction of 
the new house. 

Officers of the alumni chapter are Erling M. 
Larsen, president; John Q. Blondin, vice-presi- 
dent; Paul F. Blauert, secretary; and Phil E. 
Clock, treasurer. 

Kansas Stale Sig Eps will observe the 50th 
anniversary of the chapter on February 23-25 with 
three full days of activities. These activities in- 
clude a memorial service to deceased members, a 
model initiation, and a banquet. 

By mid-December, approximately 100 alumni 
had written saying that they and their wives will 
be attending. Members of Kansas Beta are also 
quite happy that Grand President J. E. Zollinger 
has accepted an invitation to address the banquet. 



The Montana chapter celebrated its 50th an- 
niversary on February 2. The anniversary celebra- 
tion was held in conjunction with the chapter's 
annual Queen of Hearts Ball in the Bitterroot 
Room of the Hotel Florence. Many alumni, their 
wives, and members' parents joined the under- 
graduates in attending the ball and other func- 
tions. 

The 50th anniversary of the Oregon State 
chapter will be held at Corvallis on February 16, 
17, and 18. 

The principal and important reason for the re- 
union is to pay tribute to Brother U. G. Dubach 
who has been chapter counselor and guiding light 
at Oregon Alpha for 50 years. He was the number 
1 initiate. 

Dubach was professor of political science at 
Oregon State University from 1913 to 1947. He 
was dean of men from 1924 to 1947 and professor 
of political science at Lewis and Clark College, 
1947 to 1960. He has been the guiding light and 
adviser of Oregon Alpha from 1918 to date. 

Among the 300 guests expected to attend were 
Grand President J. E. Zollinger and his wife Lu- 
cille; Dr. Harry Wellman, president of the Uni- 
versity of California, and his wife Ruth; Dr. Jen- 
sen, president of Oregon State; and Dr. Strand, 
immediate past president of the University. 

Friday events include registration and a buffet 
supper at the chapter house; Saturday events, 
luncheon at the Union; formal initiation; a me 
morial service; and the banquet in the Memorial 
Union Avith Dr. and Mrs. Dubach as the guests of 
honor and Robert Rau, as chief speaker.

At Stevens Tech, Founders' Day was held 
November 3, at the Union Club in Hoboken. The 
Alumni-Active Football trophy was presented to 
the victorious quarterback, active Mike Breslin, 
by the losing quarterback, alumni Leonard Ca- 
lone, '66. The Scott Key was presented to Jim By- 
leckie, who has a 3.90 for top scholastic position 
in the entire school. The award for farthest dis- 
tance traveled went to Rich Sieglitz for making 
the journey from Akron, Ohio. 

The previous week was dedicated to the alum- 
ni-active football game, which the actives won in 
a close contest 13-6. 

The alumni board at Stevens Tech has met 
consistently for each week of the fall term thus 
far. Many decisions concerning the future plans 
of the chapter have been made. 

Bob Van derWall, '63, has recently been named 
Chapter Counselor to replace William Lankering 
in performing a vital job as a link with both Na- 
tional and the alumni. — Steve Burdick 

West Virginia Sig Eps will celebrate the 
65th anniversary of the chapter on Sunday, March 
24. Next to Alpha at Richmond, it is the oldest 
chapter in existence. Special honors will be given 
to those alumni who have contributed over $300 
to the housing fund. To start the activities, a 
cocktail party is planned for Saturday night, fol- 
lowed by a banquet on Sunday, at which time 
awards will be made. National officers have been 
invited. 



OTHER GRADUATE ACTIVITIES 

Bucknell Sig Eps staged several Homecoming 
events for alumni and friends. The Sig Eps, for 
the second consecutive year, won the float compe- 
tition. In addition to an alumni cocktail party and 
dinner an alumni corporation meeting was held. 



The weekend closed with a dinner attended by 
the dean of men, dean of women, and the sisters 
of Alpha Chi Omega. 

The Delaware Alumni Board has elected to 
expand its membership to 13 members which will 
allow four more brothers to participate. The 
board would like the additional members to be re- 
cent graduates, thereby accenting youth on the 
board. The new members have not yet been 
elected, but several have been nominated by let- 
ters to the board, including H. Denman Smith, 
'64, and Aubrey demons, '66. 

Over 50 alumni returned to the chapter house 
for the Homecoming game where a brunch was 
served by the brotherhood prior to the game. 

The old second deck has been converted to a 
library with an acoustical ceihng, fluorescent 
lighting, carpeting, and tables being added. The 
old library was converted to a study room to 
allow five more brothers to live in the house with 
the dining area also being renovated. 

The alumni are planning the annual reunion 
which wiU be held on Friday, May 10. The activi- 
ties are being kept a surprise, but will include 
golf starting at noon and dinner at 7:30 P.M. Any 
brothers interested in assisting in this or other 
programs contact F. W. Barkley. 

Don't forget the reunion — May 10, 1968.

East Texas State alumni returned for 
Homecoming to elect an outstanding alumnus for 
the year. A plaque was presented to Fred Tar- 
pley, chapter counselor, at the annual fall dinner 
dance in Dallas on December 9 for his "outstand- 
ing contributions to Texas Zeta." 

Indiana University Sig Eps made the most 
of their Alma Mater's fine football year, 9-1, with 
the biggest and best Homecoming in years. Home- 
coming was held over the weekend of November 
3, 4, and 5. Fred Prall, Bill VanKeuren, and 
Tom Horka organized and supervised the get-to- 
gether which saw more than 400 alumni and fami- 
lies attend the weekend affair. The Sig Eps re- 
served 50 rooms at the new Ramada Inn of 
Bloomington for overnight guests. 

B. R. Davidson of Kokomo, Ind., was presented 
the Distinguished Alumni Award by last year's 
award winner, Brice Smith. Elected as new

of Indianapolis and Howard Evans of West Lafay- 
ette, Ind. — Fred Campbell 

Johns Hopkins undergraduates, alumni, and 
some faculty members recently gathered at the 
chapter house for a Sunday afternoon cocktail 
party honoring the alumni. The party provided a 
chance for the active brotherhood to become bet- 
ter acquainted with the alumni, for the alumni to 
renew old friendships with former teachers, and 
for the students to meet in an informal manner 
with their professors. 

Alunani Affairs Director Frank Marrs attended. 

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 
Missouri chapters and the Warrensburg colony 
were invited to attend and four from each state 
participated by sending a delegation of brothers 
or a written report on activities. John W. Hart- 
man, a National Director, was on hand to bring 
us greetings from Richmond. Jean Fisher, former 
traveling secretary and district governor, presided. 
The citation presented to Judge Earle W. Frost at 
the Cleveland Conclave was re-presented during 
the festivities which followed the dinner. Presen- 
tation was made by Ken Van Scoy, who served as 
general chairman of the 1947 Conclave, held in 
Kansas City. 

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 

49 



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 
reorganized in September, 1967. A cocktail-buffet 
and meeting are held the second Tuesday of each 
month at the Country Club of Little Rock. 

Temporary officers are: John W. Ramsey, Jr., 
president; A. Tim Irby, secreteiry; David K. 
Dober, treasurer. 

The Association hopes to make the establish- 
ment of a Sig Ep chapter at Little Rock Univer- 
sity its major project. — John W. Ramsey, Jr. 

At Marshall, the alumni chapter gave a party 
December 13 at the Palmerian Society Hall for 
the undergraduate chapter. Plans and finances for 
the upcoming new house were discussed. 

Ohio State alumni returned to Columbus for 
Homecoming Weekend. Friday evening a smoker 
was held, Saturday a pre-game brunch at the 
chapter house, followed by the Illinois game, and 
a dinner-dance at the Hospitality Inn.

Adopt Chinese Boy 



WILLIAM AND MARY Sig Eps and the Kappa 
Kappa Gammas have jointly adopted a child 
through the Foster Parents Plan. 

As participants in the plan they have donated 
$180 for the support of a destitute child and his 
family living in a foreign country. 

The child, Chan Wai Leung, aged 9, a bright 
fourth-grader, lives in Hong Kong with his par- 
ents and four brothers and sisters. His family is 
originally from mainland China where they fled 
seeking freedom. 

Since its beginning in 1937 the Foster Parents 
Plan has sponsored the adoption of over 840,000 
children in thirty different countries by over 
600,000 foster parents. 



At Parsons, alumni returned for Homecoming.

quet following the Parsons-Idaho State game, a 
get-acquainted informal dance Friday evening,

Undergraduates and alumni enjoyed a highly 
successful Founders' Day banquet November 3 at 
the Town House Motor Inn of Columbia. An out- 
standing address on "The Challenge of Change" 
by Brother James Barfield earned a standing ova- 
tion. 

The alumni in the Columbia-Lexington area 
are continuing a monthly luncheon meeting. 

At Stevens Point State, officers of the 
Wisconsin Delta alumni board include: William 
Bacher, president; Donald Walters, vice-president; 
Ronald Hatchet, secretary-treasurer. Through 
these men and board members Terry Gulan, Don- 
ald Hassler, Richard Heiking, and Robert Bau- 
man, the job of obtaining a house for Wisconsin 
Delta is being undertaken. 

Bandleader Woody Herman was welcomed by 
Stevens Point brothers and alumni during Home- 
coming Week. He played in concert for the festiv- 
ities, and obliged his brothers with a song dedi- 
cated to them called "Sig Ep." 

Temple alumni returned at Homecoming to 
see the big game with Bucknell and to enjoy a 
traditional annual get-together. 

Some 35 Sig Eps, mainly Wisconsin alumni, 
with representation from the Lawrence and Car- 
roll chapters as well, met in Monroe, on August 
20, as guests of five Monroe-based Sig Eps who 
acted as hosts for the day. 

Sig Eps and their wives from Wisconsin, 
Minnesota, Illinois, and Iowa made up the contin- 
gent, some of whom had not seen each other for 
some 30 years. 

The proverbial barrel of beer, chickens barbe- 
cued, and a backyard picnic provided the back- 
drop for conversation and fellowship on a nice 
Sunday afternoon in Monroe. 

Among those present: George Hibner, '40, Har- 
land Klipstein, '45, Henry J. Gempeler, '40, 
Myron Sands, '47, Charles Reddin, '40, Dr.

Several hundred Sig Ep undergraduates as ca- 
dets during the past summer received six weeks 
of training in various ROTC summer camps 
throughout the nation. 

A second lieutenant's commission awaits each 
of the successful candidates upon graduation 
from college. The work entailed training in lead- 
ership, rifle marksmanship, physical conditioning, 
and other military subjects. It was given in a 
number of places, including Fort Sill, Okla., In- 
diantown Gap Military Reservation, Pa., Fort 
Riley, Kan., Fort Bragg, N.C., Fort Lewis, Wash., 
Fort Benning, Ga., and Fort Devens, Mass.

Baldwin-Wallace Sig Eps, through the efforts 
of Chapter president Jim Hampton and House 
Committee chairman Jim Maxen, have spent 
$3,500 on new furnishings for their lounge and 
have secured an oflBce close to their living quar- 
ters in the southwest section of Ernsthausen Hall. 

At Belmont Abbey a new brick floor was 
laid in the Rathskeller part of the house, the 
bricks from the old floor being used to make a 
walkway to the house. Three rooms of the house 
have been re-ceilinged. 

Boston Sig Eps had their dining room sanded 
and refinished; the house was also completely re- 
wired. 

Bucknell Sig Eps have installed ceilings in 
their living, dining, and chapter rooms of acousti- 
cal tile. In addition the dining and chapter rooms 
were paneled with mahogany sections while a 
generous gift provided new curtains. Over the 
summer a concrete patio encircled by a red brick 
wall topped with slate was also constructed. 

Carroll Sig Eps opened their new $250,000 
home at 201 N. Charles St. in October with the 
help of more than 200 alumni and actives along 
with families and friends. Dr. Ralph S. Nanz, pro- 
fessor emeritus of biology and adviser to the 
chapter from 1926-59, dedicated the house. Rich- 
ard Oates, Carroll, '60, president of the alumni 
board, presented a key to chapter president Tom 
Patterson. 



The house, the design of which has been called 
Modern Polynesian, accommodates 48 men and a 
housemother. There are three floors of living 
space, including a 700-square-foot chapter room, 
connected to two floors of recreation space, in- 
cluding a spacious living room with two brick 
walls, a brick floor, and a large fireplace, a two- 
room housemother's suite, two large recreation 
rooms, and a sunken courtyard for outdoor fun. 

The house's completion culminates 40 years of 
planning by Dr. Nanz, who was instrumental in 
bringing Sigma Phi Epsilon to Carroll in 1940. 

Colorado Mines Sig Eps on November 18 
held ground-breaking ceremonies for a new chap- 
ter house which is expected to be completed by 
midsummer. Chapter president Chuck Wentz, 
Alumni Board president Marv Kay, and Dean of 
Students Francis Smiley wielded the shovel. A 
banquet at the house climaxed the event. 

Davis and Elkins Sig Eps completely redec- 
orated the Housemother's apartment, including 
painting, carpeting, draperies, and furniture. 

At Delaware, new library desks and acoustical 
tile for the library improve conditions for scholas- 
tic achievement. 

One would never guess by looking at it that 
the Sig Ep house at Evansville is more than 100 
years old. The house is in excellent shape. The 
historic landmark was built in 1853 by a man 
known only as Mr. Ross. The house looks as good 
inside as it does outside. The senior brothers 
painted the rooms on the first floor last year giv- 
ing the house a "like new" look. The chapter

bought the house in 1959 and expects many more 
years of shelter from it. 

At Florida, the alumni completely refurnished 
the chapter room. A stereo tape-phonograph sys- 
tem was installed in record room and a color tele- 
vision set was purchased for the housemother's 
apartment. 



Florida State Sig Eps moved into their com- 
pletely renovated house in mid-October which was 
gutted by fire in February. The third floor, form- 
erly known as the attic, was converted into sleep- 
ing quarters for ten men, is fully air-conditioned 
and carpeted and has a reading room. The bath- 
room on the second floor was completely redone 
with new equipment and tile, and rooms and the 
hallways of the second floor are also carpeted. 
New desks and beds are present in all rooms and 
provisions have been made for new furniture 
downstairs. George Kaludis, chapter adviser and 
new District Governor, was fundamentally respon- 
sible for the improvements. 

Georgia Sig Eps have leased a two-story house 
at 624 Milledge Avenue which accommodates 44 
men. Members gave up two weeks of their sum- 
mer vacation to prepare the house for fall rush. 

Iowa Wesleyan, work is being completed on 
the renovation of the house. 

Kearney State Sig Eps purchased a new 
lighted badge for the front of the house made by 
a neon sign company. It has an electric eye to 
turn on and off. 

Inside they installed a new sound-proof ceiling, 
new walls and color, and new draperies. 



Maine Sig Eps recently installed $800 worth 
of new carpeting in the halls along with wooden 
paneling. Plans have been drawn and approved 
for a $60,000, 20-men addition to be completed by 
Founders' Day 1968. 

At North Carolina, columns will be added to 
the front of the house soon after second semester 
begins. The fall pledge class built a new bar and 
redecorated the ladies' lounge. New furniture, car- 
pet, lamps, and a paint job turned the once- 
dreary lounge into an attractive, cheerful room. 

At North Texas State, the spring pledge 
class presented to the fraternity, a large profes- 
sionally painted crest sign. 

Oshkosh Sig Eps have moved into a new 
house, which holds up to 38 men and is located

on Titan Court, composed completely of Greek 
houses. The other Greeks on campus gave the 
men a very warm welcome. Many house warm- 
ings, dinners, and popcorn parties were given to 
welcome the men into their new house. Jim 
White, president, accepted the key to the court 
from Chi Omega. 

At Randolph-Macon, every room in the house 
has been redecorated, the yard has been land- 
scaped and enclosed with a fence. A savings fund 
has been started with the intention of saving to- 
wards the construction of a library-study-trophy 
room dedicated to the alumni. A side porch has 
been set aside as the site of the planned room. 
The porch will be weatherproofed, carpeted, pan- 
neled, and book and trophy shelves added. The 
cost of the project is estimated to be $3,000. A 
fourth of the needed sum has been raised mainly 
from the alumni. Books are being set aside for 
the planned room. 

Rollins Sig Eps had their house remodeled 
over the summer. The lounge was redesigned in 
red and blue decor, and individual rooms were re- 
painted and provided with carpeting. The outside 
of the house was redone. All fraternity houses on 
campus belong to the school, and the entire reno- 
vation was done at a cost of $55,000 to the Col- 
lege. 




New house of the new chapter at Oshkosh. 



South Carolina Sig Eps purchased a new 
carpet for the lounge and a stereo record 
player/AM-FM radio. The trophy cabinet has 
been refinished to match the decorator scheme, 
and new tile has been laid in the chapter room. 

At Southwest Missouri State, the living 
room has been improved with the addition of a 
new couch set and two matching chairs. New fur- 
niture has also been placed in the TV room in 
the way of two large couches and two extra large 
chairs. The basement has been redone with the 
addition of paneling and a lowered ceiling. It was 
done in a redwood color and is a huge improve- 
ment from the old bare basement. The second 
floor hall was also paneled and the ceiling low- 
ered. 

Tampa Sig Eps have remodeled the down- 
stairs of their 24-man house situated at 315 Hyde 
Park Avenue. The TV room has been paneled, the 
living room redecorated, and the kitchen re- 
equipped. Plans for the future call for a library 
addition. 

Temple alumni and undergraduates worked 
hand in hand to remodel, refurnish, and redeco- 
rate the newly acquired house at 1417 Diamond 
Street. A library is now planned to honor the late 
Ray Burkley. 

At William and Mary, the new chapter 
house, part of a twelve-fraternity complex being 
built by the College, is expected to be ready for 
occupancy by March 1, 1%8. The newly created 
alumni board of Virginia Delta has been instru- 
mental in helping to finance the furniture and ap- 
pliances for the main floor and basement.

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 
owner.

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 
other titles. 

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.

brothers.

DEVOTION UPON 
EMERGENT OCCASIONS 

■ This past season, the golfing rivalry of Paul 
CJeary and Edward McCall, chapter brothers 
at the Pitt house some eight or nine years ago, 
occasioned the use of considerable printer's ink. 
A personal notice in the Pittsburgh Press read as 
follows: "I, Paul R. Cleary, do hereby publicly 
concede and acknowledge that Edward C. McCall 
is a better golfer than I." 

This notice got air time over local TV stations, 
a full-column story in the sports section of the 
Press, and at length international coverage in 
Reader's Digest. 




Michigan Tech Sig Eps repainted house 
and remodeled porch within three days.

hours for the Master's and 90 hours beyond the 
Master's for the Doctorate. A thesis or disserta- 
tion is required. The student may register for a 
maximum of 12 hours each quarter. Among the

sonnel field are: Psychology of Counseling with

Wisconsin chapter on October 13. He is the 680th
