True brotherhood is not instinctive but must 
be learned by sharing, experiencing, and re- 
acting to life situations. Common loyalties, re- 
sponsibilities, and goals produce interdepen- 
dence among individuals. Under these circum- 
stances a young man's perspective expands 
from himself to his associates. By sharing his 
feelings, he can establish a close bond with 
those close to him and at the same time dis- 
cover himself. For this, self-expansion is a 
prerequisite and from this the individual is 
given direction, so often lacking in college 
students. After brotherly love develops, new 
emotions are felt. The following quotation? 
describe this: 

"I want to help my brothers as they have 
helped me, to give as well as receive." 

"I feel that I really belong, this means ev- 
erything to me." 

Here are expressed newly developed feel- 
ings evidencing fraternal devotion. Conse- 
quently, the happiness, warmth, and security 
of home have been recreated on the campus. 
A strong sense of kinship exists between 
brothers. The strength of this bond is appar- 

"My real brother was no brother to me at 
all, I mean he was a real zero as a brother. I 
never really had a brother in my whole life 
until I came down here and joined the frater- 
nity. It's really a great feeling." 

Responsibility goes hand in hand with 
brotherhood. Each member gives according to 
his own abilities so that the fraternity can 
reach those goals he feels important. We must 
maintain a friendly atmosphere and spirit. 

At the same time we must not neglect to 
prepare for those who come after us. We must 
be constantly mindful that rush is the life 
blood of the fraternity. We must seek the in- 
volvement of all members in chapter function- 
ing. We must never forget that brotherhood 
we feel today, and finally we must build an 
image of Sigma Phi Epsilon that radiates the 
pursuit of excellence.

The Journal invites readers to contribute 
their views, thoughts, ideas, and philoso- 
phies on topics affecting Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon. Free interchange of communication, 
when it comes from the heart, is a natural 
way of improving understanding, creating 
good will, and strengthening the bond of 
membership. Let's hear from you. 

Accent on Brotherhood 

The Purdue Sig Eps took a very good pledge 
class, this spring, of 38 men. Rush was very suc- 
cessful and Sigma Phi Epsilon brotherhood over- 
came the threat of a "collapsing Greek system" 
that has put several strong national fraternities 
in financial (as well as social) jeopardy. 

No longer in our present age are men impressed 
with simple extras such as pool tables, color TVs, 
modern houses, luxurious rooms, and the like. 
Today the Greek system is put to the test on the 
grounds on which it is built — brotherhood. 

Men who come through rush are not looking for 
mere exterior impressions, but rather are looking 
for the important things. 38 men found the mutual 
brotherhood they were looking for, and in a year 
that many have failed, Sigma Phi Epsilon has 
flourished. Indiana Alpha is proud of their 38 
pledges. — Wally Brant, Purdue Chapter, 690

This Brother Needs Help 

It is to our regret that the men of Oklahoma 
Alpha have to announce a tragedy as we now do. 
A grave misfortune has caused one of our brothers 
to lie paralyzed as the result of an athletic injury 
a few weeks ago. Being a man of tremendous 
stature, he has left a vacant spot in our brother- 
hood that is hard to fill. 

For four years the men of Oklahoma Alpha have 
received a fraternal bond of brotherhood from this 
man who has proved himself in more than the fra- 
ternity realm. The man is Ray Murphy: a good 
Christian, outstanding Sig Ep, and nationally 
known athlete. 

Ray's picture has appeared frequently in the 
Journal for his outstanding accomplishments in 
intercollegiate athletics at Oklahoma State. Ray 
has been a consistent, 3-year contender for the 
NCAA wrestling crown at 137 lbs., placing runner- 
up in 1969. He has also served his local chapter 
well, acting as summer rush chairman, pledge 
trainer, and has played numerous intramural 

It is not often that a fraternity on the O.S.U. 
campus has the opportunity to have a varsity 
athlete that is as dedicated to his fraternity as Ray 
is. We are proud to say that we have had this 
opportunity. Ray has worked diligently for Sig Ep 
and has contributed to the house without letup. 

Now he lies helpless with a broken neck and is 
paralyzed from the neck down. He is in critical 
condition and is under 24-hour intensive care. He 
needs our help. 

Because of the enormous expense of the hospital 
and special neurosurgeons, the Raymond Murphy 
Fraternal Trust has been established. We here at 
Oklahoma Alpha are doing all we can to help Ray 
and his family, but we realize that it is not enough. 
So we are asking your help for a truly deserving 
Sig Ep brother. All donations are gratefully ac- 

By emphasizing the deeper values of brotherhood, Purdue leaders attracted these pledges.

The Road Back 

The fall trimester of 1969 was dim for Parsons 
College Sig Eps. The five members who returned 
were informed that the college would not allow 
any fraternity on the hill which did not have at 
least 12 paying members. The brothers were dis- 
appointed and rejected but never thought of quit- 

The house activated four from the last spring 
pledge class. Three of these brothers — Bill Seres, 
Larry Hudak, and Charlie Funk, — rented an off- 
campus apartment-house and used the place for 
fraternity meetings and other associated functions. 
Working hard the nine brothers and Milt Pretty- 
man gathered a 15-member pledge class. This 
started the revival of the dying fraternity, though 
it had no cooperation from its apathetic alumni. 

Our basic concern was to get back on Fraternity 
Hill. After constantly urging the administration, 
we were finally allowed on. Soon afterwards we 
activated eight of the 15 pledges. Once again we 
were visited by Milt Prettyman and Ric de la 
Houssaye for more suggestions. John Hartman 
was soon to follow and since he is on the Board 
of Directors, we all felt that he could be helpful 
in our relationship with the alumni board — not to 
mention the help we received from last year's 
president, Dave Neff. 

This spring, which is the hardest time to get a 
big pledge class, we were fortunate in pledging 
eight good men. With only two brothers graduat- 
ing, the outlook for the future is hopeful. 

The brothers of Iowa Zeta would like to express 
their sincere thanks to National Director John 
Hartman and Staff Representative Milt Prettyman. 
Every brother has a deep feeling of gratitude for 
these men. Thanks, John and Milt! — Bill Bru- 
CHAK, controller. Parsons College chapter, Fair- 
field, Iowa. 

West Virginia's Chapter library 

On the Cover 


ONE man has almost single-handedly created 
West Virginia University's chapter library of 1,000 
books in five short years. 

Dr. Harry G. Wheat, professor emeritus of edu- 
cation, West Virginia, 1912, earned his A.B. de- 
gree at West Virginia, his A.M. at Chicago, and 
Ph.D. at Columbia. He served Sig Ep as Grand 
Guard from 1912-14. After teaching in public 
schools for some years he entered the college 
teaching field at Glenville, W.Va., moved on to 
Marshall, W.Va., and then to Milwaukee, Wis. 
In 1935, he came to WVU and retired in 1956. 

During his career, Dr. Wheat wrote six college- 
level textbooks on education and a set of arith- 
metics for grades 1-8. 

Realizing the great value of a chapter library, 
Dr. Wheat was a prime factor in getting the large 
room at West Virginia's six-year old house as a 
library. Also in the Harry G. Wheat Memorial 
Library, a large set of files aids the brothers. 
Old composites dating back to the early 1900s dot 
the walls. West Virginia has never been below 
third place in grades recently, a fitting testimony 
to the library and to the inspiration of Dr.

Howard Buhse, Minnesota, '29 

ANEW YORK-based brokerage house, un- 
der the direction of a University of Min- 
nesota Sig Ep, has perfected one of the most 
advanced business computer systems in all in- 

The firm is Hornblower & Weeks-Hemphill, 
Noyes, and the chairman of its executive com- 
mittee is Howard E. Buhse, Minnesota, '29. 

The magazine Business Week describes the 
achievement in a feature article, "The Street's 
New Paper-cutter: New computer system now 
operating at Hornblower & Weeks comes clos- 
est yet to solving back-ofi&ce paperwork tan- 

Apparently, the Hornblower system 
qualifies as "space-age" because it is capable 

Multiprocessing — more than one computer 
running at once. 

Multiprogramming — several different pro- 
grams running simultaneously. 

On-line and real-time operation — meaning 
that transactions are fully processed on the 
run as orders from sales offices move through 
the system to the stock exchange and back. 

Nothing piles up. The moment the markets 
close, the books are in balance. 

After five years, the daring H & W experi- 


Space-Age Broker 

ment has proven a whopping success. The 
other big Wall Street houses are installing 
similar systems, and Howard E. Buhse is get- 
ting the credit for it. 

Says Business Week's writer: "Without the 
determined backing of Buhse, an imaginative 
and affable executive who is more a computer 
fan than expert, the Hornblower system 
would have had only a slim chance. It breaks 
up too many traditional brokerage house 
practices and eliminates or combines such old 
and established back-office kingdoms as the 
order room and purchase and sales depart- 

Wisconsin Boy Made Good 

Howard E. Buhse was born at Prairie du 
Chien, Wis., and began his education in the 
public schools there before his family moved 
to Minneapolis. He entered the University of 
Minnesota in 1924 and was initiated by Min- 
nesota Alpha the same year. 

He recalls that his grades were only aver- 
age, for he had to spend far more time earn- 
ing money to pay his college expenses than he 
did in preparing for his class assignments. 
Selling men's wear for the Dayton Company, 
he made a fraternity house each lunch and 
each dinner with a trunk load of clothes and 
in the afternoons worked in the campus store 
of the Company. 

After he was graduated in 1929 from the 
Law school with a J.D., he tried, without suc- 
cess, to get a job with a law firm. "Things 
were just starting to get tough prior to the 
Depression," he recalls, and it was hard to get 
a job. 

Finally, a friend who was head of the In- 
vestment Department of the Chicago Office of 
Hornblower & Weeks suggested he come to 
Chicago and work as a bond salesman. 

"This I did," he recalls, "starting three

house, has revolutionized many 
of the Street's ancient systems 

days before Black Friday in October, 1929. 
We were supposed to have a training course, 
but the business was in such an uproar that 
nobody remembered we were around. Finally, 
some months later, someone handed me a 
book on bond salesmanship and an offering 
circular on Waldorf-Astoria Leasehold Gold 
7s, and told be to go sell some. As I recall, I 
did sell some, but if my recollection is right, 
they quickly defaulted. Anyway, I survived 
with my pay going as low as $75 per month." 
The hard years did not continue 
indefinitely, however, and in 1939 Buhse was 
made head of the investment department. In 
1942 he was made a partner, and in 1959 he 
moved to New York to head the firm. 

Although he has made some noteworthy con- 
tributions to his profession, or to the industry, 
as he calls it, he remembers with the most sat- 
isfaction his experience as president of the 
board of education of Winnetka, 111. "During 
my presidency, he writes, "we attempted to 
recognize the value of good teaching by insti- 
tuting a salary schedule which, in its time, 
was one of the highest anywhere." For the 
vigorous program in progressive education 
which it pioneered, the Winnetka school sys- 
tem became one of the best known in the na- 

Buhse has served as chairman of the Chi- 
cago Association of Stock Exchange Firms, 
chairman of the board of governors of the Na- 
tional Association of Securities Dealers, gov- 
ernor of the New York Stock Exchange, and 
president of the Bond Club of New York. 

Firms of which he is a director include 
Amsted Industries, Inc., the Ceco Corpora- 
tion, EDP Resources, Inc., National Aviation 
Corporation, and Republic Corporation. He is 
a trustee of Manhattanville College. 

Brother Buhse is a recipient of the Sigma 
Phi Epsilon Award for Distinguished Service.

AT INDIANA, Sig Ep Bill Wolfe has been 
selected as one of 32 American college 
seniors to be awarded a Rhodes Scholarship 
for study at Oxford University in England. 

Bill, 21, is a native of Decatur, 111., where 
he was valedictorian of his high school class. 
He stands 6-foot-2, weighs 215 pounds, and 
played tackle on the I.U. team which went 
to the Rose Bowl in 1968. He carries a 3.6 
gpa as a major in finance in the School of 
Business. Other activities include Blue Key, 
president of the Board of Aeons, an advisory 
group to the university president, and the 
Indiana University Student Foundation. 

At Oxford next fall. Bill will study eco- 
nomics. He says he enjoys being with people 
and "will read almost anything you put in 
front of me." Eventually he hopes to become 
a university professor of management. "And 
from there I want to be a consultant in gov- 
ernment and try to get results," He added, 
"There need to be some tremendous changes." 

Who's Writing Your Chapter History? 


11. The Tools 



WE who have a deep concern for our Fra- 
ternity chapter are vitally conscious of 
the importance of its history. History is tradi- 
tion and if we are wise, we seek guidance and 
discipline in tradition. But we observe sadly 
that events of importance, here today, have a 
way of becoming lost very quickly in the dim 
yesterdays. And if we are to make use of our 
history we cannot be satisfied to let significant 
events remain buried. 

The task of writing a chapter history is not 
as difficult as it seems at first glance; many 
tools are available which we can put to use. 

The Journal's back issues I found to be the 
most valuable single tool in the writing of the 
history. Most recent chapters have a complete 
bound collection since their founding; older 
chapters might have lost some of their earlier 
copies. Volumes I to XXVIII are specially 
hard to find anywhere other than in Rich- 
mond. News items in The Journal give an 
idea of the chapter's past activities and 
officers. At times it is frustrating not to be 
able to find a chapter's entry due to a lazy 

Members of the chapter's alumni board are 
usually well qualified to give the most realis- 
tic, though not always the most colorful of ac- 
counts of the chapter's history. Many of them 
have minutes of the past meetings. 


The chapter's minutes and record books 
can prove valuable if they have been kept by 
an efficient recorder. They can yield facts and 
numbers on membership for certain years. All 
of this data can be checked against the chap- 
ter roll lists maintained at the Headquarters 
in Richmond. 

The campus newspapers during the early 
years of the fraternity system carried whole 
columns of campus gossip and anecdotes; 
these may be drawn from to add color to an 
otherwise dull retelling of past events. In 
later years they give IM results, IFC activi- 
ties, winners of Homecoming events, etc. Most 
universities have several histories in which 
one or two chapters may be found dealing 
with the establishment of the Fraternity Sys- 
tem on campus, and the policies of the Ad- 
ministration in dealing with Greek-letter so- 
cieties. This information will afford touches of 
background leading up to the founding of 
Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

Old copies of chapter newspapers are for 
obvious reasons a mine of information; such 
things are hard to come by unless they are 
filed in Headquarters archives or are contrib- 
uted by alumni. 

The School Yearbook is a good record of 
yearly campus life, and it can help identify 
some faces in unlabeled chapter photos com- 
ing from dateless scrapbooks. Persons who 
have charge of the school's archives are al- 
ways gracious in helping by allowing the use 
of their collections. 

If the above-mentioned sources are used 
thoroughly the writer might come up with 
three volumes of history. Clearly that is not 
the object of the project. The finished product 
should not be a lengthy apologia of the chap- 
ter, but a memento of happy fellowship and 
constructive struggle that will renew and 
strengthen alumni bonds in the heart of com- 
mon tradition. The history should enlist the 
support of alumni in obtaining publicity in 
the chapter's newsletter, and the publication 
of the manuscript should be carefully consid-

THIRTY-FIVE men at Morris Harvey College, 
Charleston, W.Va., were initiated as char-

emonies w^ere conducted at the Oakridge Gos- 
pel Tabernacle under the guidance of Staff 
Representatives Dave Lembach and Larry At- 
kins. R. Eric Weise of Cincinnati, a National 
Director, presented the charter. 

The ceremony continued for eight hours, as 
35 new initiates and 10 members at large 
were welcomed into the bond of Sigma Phi 
Epsilon. The banquet-dance took place in the 
Daniel Boone Hotel's Mirror Room. 

West Virginia Zeta Week began Saturday, 
January 3, at the Sig Ep Pine Manor Lodge 
with a warmup dance. Various dinners were 
conducted throughout the week, including 
Golden Hearts, Alumni and Colony banquets. 
The National Plege Test was administered on 
Thursday with all 35 men passing with flying 
colors. The Golden Hearts held a reception on 
Friday night, during which they served cake 
and punch to the brothers who were anxiously 
anticipating their initiation the following 
morning. The weather failed to cooperate 
with initiation plans, as nearly four inches of 
snow fell during the night. But after four 
years of hard work towards national recogni- 
tion, the brothers of the colony did not let the 

adverse weather dampen them other than

served as toastmaster for the banquet-dance. 
Brother Rupert was installed at the banquet 
along with other charter officers: Vice-presi-

Secretary Richard Williams, and Recorder Ed 
Withrow. The Reverend Winton R. Houck 
gave the invocation and former Colony Presi-

got underway with music by The Inspirations. 

Background of Colony 

West Virginia Zeta was first conceived in 
March, 1966, when a member of the Morris 
Harvey faculty, Fred A. Barkey, approached 
several of his students and discussed the idea 
of a fourth social fraternity at the college. Soon 
afterwards, an official meeting was held with 
the group adopting the name Sigma Epsilon 
Phi. In May, 1966, the first social activity was 
held with a rush function for prospective 
members. On May 21, the first ritual cere- 
mony of Sigma Epsilon Phi was held at 
Charleston Catholic High School. This en- 
larged the roster to 21 charter members in the 
new local. Frank Matthews was installed as 
first president and number one initiate. Mat- 
thews, along with Joseph Robertson, Fred 
Rapp, Mark Robinson (deceased), Homer 
Bowers, James Arthur, and Lance Vaughan, 
are recognized as the seven founders. 

Having adopted the motto, "A Cut Above 
the Ordinary," the fall semester of 1966 saw 
Sigma Epsilon Phi gain recognition as a 
men's social organization at the College. With 
permanent recognition obtained, petitions 
were addressed to several national fraternities 
with hope of affiliation by the fall of 1967. 
This dream became a reality with our affili- 
ation with Sigma Phi Epsilon on December 
10, 1967. 

The semesters that followed saw the Morris 
Harvey Sig Eps become active in college ac- 
tivities. The numerous awards and honors in- 
clude: two first-place trophies for the best 
float in two Homecoming parades, the Sig Ep 
candidate for Homecoming Queen winning 
the Queenship, second place in Greek Week 
activities, second place in May Day Sing, and 
various championships in intramural competi- 

The Sig Eps showed their strength in the 
spring of 1969, when they pulled the largest 
pledge class on campus. Twenty-three men 
chose the Sigma Phi Epsilon colony. The col- 
ony's rivals were Tau Kappa EpsHon, Alpha 
Sigma Phi, Theta Xi, and Zeta Beta Tau. 

The four sororities on campus. Alpha Xi 
Delta, Alpha Omicron Pi, Gamma Delta Phi, 
and Delta Zeta, have supported the brothers 
of West Virginia Zeta in every way possible. 

The outlook for the future is promising, as 
an effective rush and pledge program con- 
tinue to pledge and train only those who 
stand a "Cut Above the Ordinary." The broth- 
ers of West Virginia Zeta are honored to be a 
part of such a growing organization and wish 
to thank everyone who played a part in mak- 
ing the new chapter possible. 

The 45 brothers of West Virginia Zeta, in 
order of initiation, are: Frank Matthews,

Growth of the College 

Morris Harvey College is an independent 
liberal arts college of 3,000 students. From its 
founding in 1888 until 1935, the college was 
located in Barboursville, W.Va., and was op- 
erated under the Methodist Episcopal 
Church. In the summer 1935 when the Col- 
lege was moved to Charleston, administra- 
tive headquarters was established in the old 
West Virginia State Capitol. 

In September, 1947, all personnel and re- 
cords were transferred to the permanent cam- 
pus on the south bank of the Kanawha River 
opposite the West Virginia State Capitol, 
where the College is now housed in a modern 

In March, 1958, Morris Harvey College be- 
came fully accredited. In 1959, it became a 
member of the Association of American Col- 
leges, and the American Association of Col- 
lege Teacher Education, and the American 
Council of Education. In 1962, it achieved 
membership in the College Entrance Exami- 
nation Board. 

On November 16, 1960 the board of trust- 
ees of the College authorized a development 
program costing approximately $4,000,000. 
The implementation of the program has re- 
sulted in an addition of the southwest wing of 
Riggleman Hall, the $1,700,000 Student 
Union Building, and two new residence halls, 
all completed by 1966. A new Libarary, a 
Physical Education Building, a Performing 
Arts Building, and two new residence halls 
are to be completed by 1973. 

More and More Red Doors 

THE FRATERNITY installed six new chapters 
during the month of April — a record number for 
a single month. 

Two chapters received charters on April 4. The 
Clenison College colony was installed as South 
Carolina Beta, with Past Grand President Bedford 
W. Black and National Directors William A. Mac- 
Donough and James W. Frazier officiating for the 
Grand Chapter. The colony at Defiance College 
was installed as Ohio Omicron, with National Di- 
rector W. Brooks Reed presenting the charter. 

On April 11, the colony at Madison College 
received the charter of Virginia Iota from Brother 

On April 25, three installation ceremonies were 
conducted. Virginia Polytechnic Institute re- 
ceived a charter as Virginia Kappa, with Brother 
MacDonough officiating. Morehead State Colony 
became Kentucky Zeta. The colony at Marquette 
received the charter of Wisconsin Zeta from Grand 
Treasurer Frank J. Ruck, Jr., and National Direc- 
tor John W. Hartman. The Marquette chapter is 
No. 183. 

Reports and pictures covering these installations 
have been scheduled for the September Journal.

St. Mary's: 

THE 17-year existence of the Order of the 
Barons of St. Mary's University, San An- 
tonio, Tex., and the 4-year career of the col- 
ony became old pages of history on January 
31, 1970. 

On this day, Texas Theta Chapter of Sigma 
Phi Epsilon was born as 23 men were ini- 
tiated as charter members. National Director 
John W. Hartman presented the chapter to 
Colony President John "Walsh at the installa- 
tion banquet which began a new day of his- 

Staff Representative John P. Hearn inaugu- 
rated the series of installation events when he 
arrived in San Antonio on Wednesday, Janu- 
ary 28, to brief the candidates for initiation. 
A pledge test was administered to the mem- 
bers of the colony on January 30. This was 
followed by an informal reception attended 
by guests of Texas Theta, including the ini- 

tiating teams from Texas, Lamar Tech, and 
Sam Houston State. 

Initiated on Saturday morning were: Gabe 
Ayson, Honolulu, Hawaii; Lynn Barnett, St. 
Louis, Mo.; Tom Collins, Philadelphia, Pa.; 
David Dacy, Fort Worth; Ralph Domas, Ba- 
ton Rouge, La.; Steve Flores, Pueblo, Colo.;

Texas Alpha president Bruce Anderson. 

These ceremonies were immediately fol- 
lowed by a formal dinner-dance in the Shera- 
ton Ball Room. After a savory steak dinner, 
Chapter President and Toastmaster John 
Walsh acknowledged such guests as Chapter 
Counselor Charles Kenworthey, District Gov- 
ernor Chester Lee, Brother Hartman, Alumni 
President Sandy Rose, Staff Representatives 
John Hearn and Larry Atkins, St. Mary's 
Dean of Students Deed Vest, St. Mary's Vice- 
president Marion F. Belka, and brothers from 
the University of Texas, Lamar Tech, and 
Sam Houston State. Before introducing guest 
speakers Charles Kenworthey and John Hart- 
man, Brother Walsh reviewed the Colony's 

John Hartman's and Charles Kenworthey's 
speeches engulfed a range of topics from 
brother John O'Toole's wavering draft board 
status to four and a half years of time, work, 
and energy produced by many dedicated men. 
Brother Kenworthey said, "It means that you 
will have to hold on to the best traditions of 
your colony days and build into the tradition, 
customs, and responsibilities of Sigma Phi 
Epsilon. It means you will give character and

courtesy, virtue, and scholarship, the same 
dedication you have been giving to partying, 
intramural sports and good fellowship." 

Following this, the Chamber of Commerce, 
in keeping with their "red carpet" welcome to 
Sig Ep guests, presented Brother Hartman 
with an honorary mayorship of the city of San 
Antonio; and John Walsh awarded Chapter 
Counselor Charles Kenworthey a plaque hon- 
oring him as Alumnus of the Year. 

At 9:30 P.M., Brother Hearn installed the 
following as officers of the new chapter: John 
W. Walsh, president; William Robb, vice- 
president; William Niehoff, controller; Ro- 
bert Sneddon, secretary; and Ralph Domas, 
recorder. The brothers then joined in salute 
to their Fraternity by singing the Anthem. 
The formal dance concluded the evening.

The University 

St. Mary's University is the fourth largest 
private university in Texas — after Baylor, 
Texas Christian, and S.M.U. The University 
was founded in 1852 — just 16 years after the 
fall of the Alamo — when four brothers of the 
Society of Mary, a teaching order of Broth- 
ers and Priests founded in Bordeaux, France, 
arrived in pioneer San Antonio by stagecoach 
from Indianola to start a much-needed school 
at the invitation of the Bishop. 

The school began in a second-floor loft over 
a store on Main Plaza and then moved a year 
later to a new limestone building on the north 
bank of the San Antonio River, an address 
now known as 112 College Street. At the turn 
of the century, the campus was moved to a 
mesquite-covered 130-acre plot beyond the 
northwestern edge of the city, a mile above 
Woodlawn Lake. 

Growing along with San Antonio, St. 
Mary's boasts a $25 million building program 
which has added ten new structures in Texas 
Colonial architecture to such sturdy Gothic 

landmarks as the St. Louis Hall administra- 
tion building. 

Student enrollment has doubled in the past 
seven years. In the fall of 1969, there were 
4,300 students. 

Operated by the St. Louis province of the 
Society of Mary, coeducational since 1963, St. 
Mary's is a university in the accepted mean- 
ing of the word university as "a collection of 
colleges." These are the School of Arts and 
Sciences, the School of Business Administra- 
tion, the School of Law, and the Graduate 

The Local Group 

The Order of the Barons was founded by 18 
men of the University on March 20, 1948, who 
elected the following officers from among 
their number: Duane Hitchcock, president; 
Wayne Sunders, vice president; Joe Speir, 
secretary; Bob Mepham, treasurer; and Cale 
Darnell, sergeant-at-arms. 

The purpose and ideals upon which the 
club was founded were: (1) to further the 
general representation of the members in the 
activities of St. Mary's U. ; (2) To promote 
the interest of the school; (3) To provide en- 
tertainment for the club members; (4) To 
support school activities; (5) To develop 
leadership abilities in the club members; (6) 
To foster school spirit and a feeling of fellow- 

Over the next 17 years, the club experi- 
enced much success and gained much pres- 
tige. Recognizing the advantages of affiliation 
with a progressive national fraternity., leaders 
decided to petition Sigma Phi Epsilon. The 
officers at that time were: president, Dave 
Clark; vice-president, Bill Novak; treasurer, 
John Saba; secretary. Bob Schleinat; and 
sergeant-at-arms. Bob Dwyer. 

Since then the colony has participated in 
such projects as the annual "Thanksgiving 
canned good collection" and the nationwide 
"Muscular-dystrophy" drive. Members have 
aided in community action by acting as mar- 
shals and drivers for San Antonio's St. Pat- 
rick's Day Parade. 

In the intramural program. Sig Eps have 
won both the intramural and interfraternity 
first place trophies the last two years. Basket- 
ball, tennis, badminton, as well as bowling

championships, place Sigma Phi Epsilon in 
the lead for both trophies again. 

Fraternities on campus include: Delta 
Sigma Phi, Lambda Chi Alpha, Alpha Delta 
Gamma, Psi Chi Omega, Rho Beta Gamma, 
Rho Chi, Sigma Beta Chi, Tau Delta Sigma, 
Tau Epsilon Chi, Theta Sigma Chi, and Zeta 
Phi Sigma. 

Recent Accomplishiuents 

The brothers of Texas Theta participated 
in the national "Shamrocks For Dystrophy" 
Tag Day, March 14. They turned out to man 
four street corners in downtown San Antonio 
and were successful in collecting a substan- 
tial amount. 

In more recent intramural action, the bas- 
ketball team breezed through an undefeated 
season. The team was led in scoring and play- 
making by Paul Kozlowicz and Steve Flores, 
who placed on the intramural All-Star squad. 
In volleyball the fraternity took second place. 
The bowling team of Frank Hall, Jim Coen, 
Charles Winfield, and John Kish captured 
first. With these victories, Texas Theta is 
leading all fraternities for the intramural 

Several outstanding varsity athletes are

with an outstanding 20-5 record.

The New Abbot 
At Belmont Abbey 

The Reverend Edmund F. McCaffrey, 
the newly elected chancellor of the 
College, feels the good fraternity 
reflects mankind^s central values 

THE Reverend Edmund F. McCaflFrey, 
O.S.B., an alumnus of North Carolina 
Lambda at Belmont Abbey College, elected 
the fourth Abbot of the College on March 2, 
perceives the intrinsic values of brotherhood 
in a divine light. 

The youthful abbot, who is also chancellor 
or chief governor of the College, by virtue of 
his election, stated at a recent rush smoker : 

"In recent years an air of pessimism has 
developed in some quarters about the future 
of fraternities. Such an outlook distorts real- 
ity, as ours is a vital age, an age of concern, 
and an age in which men are seeking stable 

values and a balanced notion of love. Indeed, 
love is the key. 

"Is not the essence of brotherhood love and 
genuine concern for one's fellowman? The 
symbol and spirit of Sigma Phi Epsilon refl- 
ects this vital modern concern and therefore 
with hand and heart let us seek this goal in 
unity. Then we need not have any fear of the 
future of Sigma Phi Epsilon or the fraternity 
system. Our very reason of being reflects the 
central values of mankind." 

Such belief in brotherhood must give 
strength to all the young men who seek an 
education at this College. 

Abbot Edmund was instrumental in the 
founding of the Hibernian Social Society, the 
ancestor of North Carolina Lambda, having 
served as the original faculty adviser of the 
Hibernians. He was initiated into Sigma Phi 
Epsilon October 18, 1968, and has been active 
in fraternity affairs. 

A monk of the Order of St. Benedict, Abbot 
Edmund received his education at Belmont 
Abbey Preparatory School, and graduated 
from Belmont Abbey College in 1955 with the 
B.A. in philosophy. He received the S.T.B. 
from Belmont Abbey Seminary, then went on 
to take his master's and Ph.D. at the Catholic 
University of America, Washington, D.C. 

Prior to his election. Abbot Edmund served 
as chairman of the Department of Political 
Science at Belmont Abbey College and was 
teaching international relations, foreign pol- 
icy, and political theory. He hopes to continue 
teaching at least one class so as to be able to 
stay in touch with the students. 

Belmont Abbey was founded in 1876 by 
monks from St. Vincent's Archabbey in La- 
trobe, Pa. The foundation was made an Ab- 
bey in 1884. In June, 1910, Belmont Abbey 
was raised to the dignity of an Abbey Nullius, 
the only Nullius in the United States. An Ab- 
bey Nullius is a unique ecclesiastical division 
under the jurisdiction of the Abbot-Ordinary. 

Father Kenneth Geyer, North Carolina 
Lambda's popular chapter counselor, has 
pointed out that St. Benedict, who died in 1947, 
centered supreme attention on the same words 
of New Testament Scripture that Carter Ash- 
ton Jenkens selected upon which to base the 
entire structure of the Fraternity at Richmond 
in 1901. 


Indiana Tech's 
Marvelous I^loo 

The Sig Eps build an Eskimo hut 
as a joke and teach themselves a 
lesson in the psychology of values 


OUT of the snow covering the Sig Ep front 
lawn at Indiana Tech, there arose a 
strange dwelling one day during Christmas 
break. To the people traveling along the 
street in front of the house, the new structure 
resembled a shelter used by people in the fro- 
zen North. In fact, here was the igloo of the 
"North Pole chapter" of Sig Ep. 

What started out to be a snow removal 
project turned out to be a weekend of ice 
sculpturing for Brad Molnar, Dave Burkett, 
Rocky Peters, and Bob McAlpine. The erec- 
tors of the igloo wanted to have a Christmas 
gift for the rest of the brotherhood when they 
returned from Christmas break. Little did 


Indiana Tech's mascot, Samantha Epsilon: 
"You can have your igloo, I'll stay here." 

The North Pole Chapter received many visitors. 

they know that the object they were creating 
would become a center of curiosity for the en- 
tire community. 

Built as a sort of joke, the little igloo 
proved to be a stellar attraction. Motorists on 
their way to work each morning viewed the 
Eskimo house and told others about it. Arti- 
cles appeared in the local newspapers about 
the "Icemen of Indiana Tech." On television, 
viewers watched 52 people jam themselves in- 
side the ice house to start a new college craze 
called "Igloo stuffing." Attracted by such pub- 
licity, hordes of small school children de- 
scended on the Sig Ep house to view the ig- 
loo, both inside and out. The brothers wel- 
comed the little tykes and served hot choco- 
late to all who came. 

It is hard to say why the igloo had the 
effect that it did. The brothers were com- 
pletely overwhelmed by the attention that it 
drew. One thing is certain — it did have a posi- 
tive effect on the Sig Eps. It helped them in 
rush by showing rushees one side of Sig Ep 
life. Community relations were improved by 
hosting the small children from nursery and 
public schools. There was also an intangible 
property connected with the igloo that the 
brothers could feel. It was a sense of pride in 
something that the entire brotherhood was re- 
sponsible for, and the feeling of unity that be- 
comes apparent when all the brothers are to- 
gether and have one goal in common. 

Finally the igloo began to deteriorate and 
melt away, and everyone was sad to see it go. 
However, the spirit that it left behind will re- 
main with the brothers and in their memory 
for a long time. 


Oklahoma Si^ Eps Be^in Comeback 

Roger Strube, Headquarters expert on rush, and Ron Overley as alumni 
counselor form a nucleus of able men who are rebuilding the chapter 



Staff Representative Roger Strube (left) provided the know-how and salesmanship to 
reform chapter at Oklahoma with men shown; Ron Overley, Kansas State, is Counselor. 

THIS fall Oklahoma Beta Chapter at the 
University of Oklahoma was in a very 
weak position, probably near death. If Sigma 
Phi Epsilon was to remain at Oklahoma, an 
effective rush program had to be developed, 
and it had to be geared to the undergraduate 
who wanted to be involved in building a new 
fraternity chapter. The rush program at Ok- 
lahoma was developed and implemented by 
Staff Representative Roger L. Strube. Roger 
is the staff expert on rush, and was given 
full responsibility for starting Oklahoma Beta 
on its way. 

Realizing that he could not become a per- 
manent resident at Oklahoma, Roger located 
an alumnus, Ron W. Overley, Kansas State, 
to serve as counselor to the new pledges. 


Ron, a former chapter president, worked 
with the men Roger pledged, and served as 
their educator, adviser, confidant, and friend. 
He spent uncountable hours with the new 
pledges and steered them through their ap- 
prenticeship to initiation which was held on 
February 15, 1970, at the Oklahoma State 
chapter house. 

The new Oklahoma Beta Chapter is under 
the leadership of Steve Plumbtree, president; 
David May, vice-president; Kelly Clark, con- 
troller and Rick Wager, secretary. The rush 
chairman is Rick Piper. Other members of 
the chapter are: Patrick Carr, Charles Tope, 
Richard Ashford, Craig Smith, Tom Read, 
George Zeito, Glenn Walters, Charles Piper, 
Robert Sturdivan, Phillip Humble, Keith 

Heil, and Douglas Rogers. Tom Zongker, a 
former president of the chapter, is still par- 
ticipating and has been a big help to the 
new chapter. 

Phi Epsilon, the group which received a 
charter as Oklahoma Beta on June 1, 1946, did 
not lack workmanlike and generous alumni 
backing during the early years. The group 
came into being through the leadership of 
Thompson G. Sexton, Oklahoma State, an ex- 
ecutive in the State Office of Education. The 
nucleus of alumni with whom he worked in- 
cluded V. G. Edmondson, Iowa, Leslie H. Rice, 
Missouri, Robert J. Smith, Lawrence, and 
Harry Synar, Oklahoma State. The charter 
members were all outstanding campus leaders. 

Through the years men were pledged and 
initiated who brought renown until recently. 

In the fall the chapter's future was ques- 
tionable. Now through a team effort, Head- 
quarters staff and alumni support, the chap- 
ter is on its way, and a continued team effort 
will be necessary to build chapter strength 
and build a new chapter house. 

The team has been enlarged to include 
the undergraduates, and with these three key 
elements — undergraduate desire, alumni sup- 
port, and Headquarters guidance— Oklahoma 
Beta will succeed. 

Research conducted on chapters that have 
been restored to strength after near-death 
reveals, first, that if a chapter is dying and 
is left alone, it will die. Naturally it must 
have help. The places of the men who have 
failed must be taken by men who have the 
ability and will to succeed as a brotherhood. 
In cases where a study has been made, the 
two catalytic factors that restore success are 
seen to be alumni support and Headquarters 
guidance and help. The feat is to attract men 
of sufficient number who will do the job and 
back them up to see that the goal is accom- 

If you are in an undergraduate chapter 
and feel alumni support is lacking or de- 
ficient, please let Headquarters know your 
feelings. The Headquarters staff will help 
to enlist support from nearby alumni. If you 
are an alumnus and wish to work with an 
undergraduate chapter, you are encouraged 
to contact the chapter directly or write to 
Headquarters for more information.

March of Dimes 

Maryland Sig Ep helps launch program 


|yRON Dutterer of the University of 
Maryland chapter was one of 20 college 
students who attended a March of Dimes 
meeting at the White House January 23. Held 
in the Yellow Oval Room, it was hosted by 
Tricia Nixon, Honorary National Chairman of 
Youth Activities for the organization. Co-host- 
3ss was Kathy Garver, Youth Chairman, who 
stars in the CBS tv series, Family Affair. 

The students who were Miss Nixon's guests 
represented national collegiate organizations. 
Dutterer represented the National Interfrater- 
nity Conference. 

The purpose of the meeting was to launch 
CAP, the College Action Program of the Na- 
tional Foundation-March of Dimes, which 
seeks to involve students in the organization's 
protest against birth defects through educa- 
tion, service and fund-raising projects. 

Dutterer said, "College men and women are 
particularly concerned about improving the 
quality of life in the '70s. As parents of the 
next generation we have a very special stake 
in programs to prevent birth defects." 


Entrance to Scliool of Business Administration Building at Memphis State University. 


Brothers will meet at the annual Academy on August 22-26 to exchange 
ideas, discuss trends, and participate in a new feature — SPEAKOUT 



AS THE August sun lavishes its rays upon 
Highland Towers at Memphis State 
University, in Memphis, Tenn., Sig Eps from 
all over the country will be sitting in air- 
conditioned comfort to assimilate all possible 
views and news about the Fraternity of today. 
During the days of August 22-26, brothers will 
be exchanging ideas and discussing trends 
which could range from communal living, to 
managing finances, to methods of building 
chapter manpower. In short, these undergrad- 
uates who are the real gears that mesh within 
the Fraternity, will be able to communicate 
and discuss almost any area they feel vital to 
their interests. 

It's not all work though. There will be time 
for everyone to free-lance around Memphis, 
watch movies, or to participate in athletic 


This will be Sigma Phi Epsilon's 7th An- 
nual Academy. For the sake of all partici- 
pants and all those concerned, let me explain 
the difference between an Academy (held on 
even-numbered years) and a Grand Chapter/ 
Academy (held on odd-numbered years.) 

Every summer Sigma Phi Epsilon sponsors 
an Academy and Leadership School which is 
designed to educate the Fraternity's under- 
graduates, district governors, and chapter 
counselors on all phases of the Fraternity's 
operation. On even-numbered years, the pro- 
gram presented is one which is geared totally 
to the theme of education and learning about 
Sigma Phi Epsilon and fraternity life in gen- 
eral. This year we hope to see some actual 
ideas and programs presented by undergradu- 
ates which could help chart a course for the 
Fraternity to follow in future years. 

In Memphis 1970, there will be classes and 
seminars dealing with the many areas of op- 
eration within the Fraternity. There will be a 
chance for frank communication between un- 
dergraduates and the Headquarters Staff, as 
well as with the National Board of Directors. 
The chances for communication in small 
groups and private conversation will always 
be available, but there will be one exercise 
in communication that will be available to all 
in attendance. This will be everyone's chance 
to really communicate eyeball-to-eyeball with 
the National Board of Directors and the Head- 
quarters Staff. Watch for an event entitled 

SPEAKOUT will be everyone's chance to 
find out how the Fraternity's national leaders 
really view certain of the Fraternity's pro- 
grams and policies. SPEAKOUT is not de- 
signed to be a confrontation or a name-calling 
session — it is designed to inform you. You 
can make SPEAKOUT what you want it to 
be. Its success depends on everyone's participa- 
tion. You're free to talk about anything that's 
on your mind regarding the Fraternity. 

The over-all goal of SPEAKOUT is to an- 
swer questions, to inform and clear up any 
misconceptions. It should follow that there 
will be continued good relations between un- 
dergraduates, alumni, the Headquarters Staff, 
and the National Board of Directors. 

This year it is the hope of the National 
Leadership Committee (Fraternity leaders who 
coordinate the Academy), the Headquarters 
StafiF and the National Board of Directors that 
the ideas, issues, and programs discussed and 
developed at "Memphis 1970" won't fade into 
the wilderness after August 26. 

In the summer of 1971, the Fraternity will 
host its 32nd Grand Chapter/ Academy (for- 
mally called a Conclave.) Along with the 
annual Academy and Leadership School, the 
Grand Chapter meets to change, add to or 
delete the Laws of the Fraternity. The Grand 
Chapter is the legislative body which deter- 
mines Fraternity Law, policy, and direction. 
The bulk of the Grand Chapter's voting power 
lies with the undergraduate chapters. Each 
chapter is required to send a delegate and an 
alternate delegate to the 32nd Grand Chapter 
session. With such a large voting power, there 
are many things that undergraduates should 

be thinking about in terms of the 1971 Grand 

There is no reason why "Memphis 1970," 
and all academies, cannot be brainstorming 
sessions for charting the course for our Fra- 
ternity to follow in the coming years. The 
ideas and thoughts that are brought out this 
coming summer in Memphis can be nurtured 
by undergraduates during the 1970-71 aca- 
demic year. By rallying support for con- 
structive change within the Fraternity's na- 
tional structure (as outlined in the Book of 
Laws) the undergraduates can put forth their 
efforts to set the Fraternity in any positive 
direction it should follow. 

By taking full advantage of the opportuni- 
ties offered in "Memphis 1970," both the 
undergraduate and alumnus can easily ac- 
complish the following: he can learn about 
any area of Fraternity operation that may 
interest him; he can communicate with Sig- 
ma Phi Epsilon's leaders and listen to their 
views on Fraternity policy and direction; 
he can decide how he can do his part to 
change any area of the Fraternity he wants 

This summer will be a time for everyone 
who so desires to become involved in what 
this Fraternity is all about. There are op- 
portunities to find out why certain policies 
are in effect and there will be competent 
people to show you how to set a new direc- 
tion if one is needed. There are ways to find 
out what other chapters are doing and how 
you can improve your own operation. 

The seeds are planted — it will take your 
all-out effort and active concern to reap the

Rallies Boost SPECTRA 


up 60 percent 

for 1970-71 

THE Foundation Trustees have proudly an- 
nounced a 60 per cent increase in the 
number of scholarships awarded from the 
General Fund for the 1970-71 academic year. 
Thirteen $350 scholarships will be awarded. 
And, for the first time, runner-up awards of 
$50 each will be given to thirteen additional 
applicants. The scholarship winners and run- 
ners-up will be notified before summer break 
and their names will be announced in the 
September Journal. 

The increase in scholarship awards is a di- 
rect result of the SPECTRA campaign, which 
enters its second year on an optimistic note. 
Sig Eps in Florida are conducting a statewide 
rally, with a goal of $150,000. Oklahoma City 
Sig Eps held their kickoff March 19, and 
Cleveland Sig Eps are meeting in a series of 
planned dinner rallies. The Mobile kickofi 
was held April 28, and Pittsburgh organiza- 
tion is under way. Atlanta and Dallas cam- 
paigns are picking up steam and the Cincin- 
nati-Dayton area campaign is drawing to a 
successful conclusion. 

The results of SPECTRA's first year have 
led Grand President J. E. Zollinger, National 
Chairman, to express his confidence that Sig 
Ep loyalty will assure the million-dollar goal. 
Noting that most giving so far has been on a 
one-time basis, he has urged all members to 


make commitments to the Foundation cover- 
ing the years between now and 1976. 

"This is a long-range program deserving 
long-range giving," he said. "I urge more of 
our 70,000 living alumni to make fair share 
pledges payable over the next three to five 
years. We have an exceptional opportunity to 
show our faith in the future and continue 
Sigma Phi Epsilon's enviable record of 
achievement. We can add a crowning touch to 
our 75th anniversary celebration in 1976 and 
assure our million-dollar goal by rallying now 
to support SPECTRA," he added. 

More than 560 gifts and pledges have been 
received from undergraduate and alumni do-

Unique Research Project The Boston University chapter house will be the scene for a 
remarkable experiment starting with the 1970-71 academic year. The chapter's alumni board 
has voted to let the Headquarters staff assume the chaper's operation and management in 
order to rebuild the chapter. 

This chapter was chosen for the research project for several reasons. (1) The chapter prob- 
ably would have folded without a transfusion. (2) The house is well located, in excellent 
condition, and highly adaptable for use in special programs. (3) The University is a typical 
urban campus with a large enrollment of liberal students, an environment often considered 
antagonistic to fraternities. In short, the right climate was available for putting into practice 
new concepts and programs specifically designed for the aggressive, modern fraternity 

Many ideas will be tried in this human relationships experimental workshop. A B.U. fac- 
ulty member and his wife can rent an apartment in the house, and he may be able to teach 
some of his classes in one of the large public rooms. The public rooms can be used also by the 
members to tutor or work with ghetto children. So-called traditional fraternity practices will 
change: new members will be recruited all year long, the pledge program will be truly edu- 
cational and without hazing, and pledges will be assimilated quickly into the chapter instead 
of the chapter's being dichotomized through horizontal stratification. 

What does the Fraternity hope to gain from this bold venture? At least five principal bene- 
fits are expected. (1) The chapter can be saved, demonstrating that everything possible is 
tried before giving up a chapter. (2) Familiarity will be gained with the real problems of 
operating a chapter on an urban campus; much has been said but little is really known about 
these problems. (3) What is learned at B.U. can be applied at chapters at other urban situa- 
tions (Pennsylvania, Temple, M.I.T., Buffalo, Detroit, to name a few). (4) At least some of 
the new concepts and programs can be applied at all or nearly all other chapters. (5) Re- 
generated enthusiasm by Boston area alumni is bound to result; they will participate in this 
program, as well as using the chapter house for Boston Alumni Chapter meetings. 

The entire program will be directed by Staff Representative David E. Lembach. Dave is 
well qualified for this special responsibility, having worked with the northeast chapters for a 
year while doing research on urban campus problems. He will be living in the chapter house 
much of the time and from there also operating the regional office to provide full services to 
the chapters in the northeast province. We congratulate Dave on accepting this unique chal- 

Summer School Student members from selected chapters will be attending special 
classes this summer at Headquarters. The Fraternity's professional staff will serve as faculty 
for initial classes on Rushing and for Chapter Management classes to be offered in the 
second section of the school. The summer school is an innovation this year, designed 


for intensive work under ideal conditions on particular subjects of greatest need. This new 
service to members was proposed by the Staff Representatives who deserve much credit for 
conducting this challenging program. 

Board of Directors Meeting The annual meeting of the National Board of Directors 
is set for May 22-24 at Sigma Phi Epsilon Headquarters in Richmond. 

The eight-member Board is the supreme authority between the biennial Grand Chapter 
sessions. The Board sets policy and performance standards, elects officials, approves budgets, 
authorizes special projects and studies, reviews chapter operations, approves legal matters — 
in short, the Board provides dynamic leadership for all Fraternity operations. Any member 
in good standing is eligible to attend the Board meetings. 

The eight National Directors are volunteer workers who receive no pay for their many 
hours of devoted service; they are reimbursed only for actual travel expenses while on Fra- 
ternity business. 

The theme for the annual meeting might well be "Charting Sigma Phi Epsilon's course for 
the 1970's." Special reports will be presented on Grand Chapter financial performance and 
projections in light of the dollar's loss in purchasing power, and an analysis of present and 
future equipment needs (the 100,000th Sig Ep will be initiated in about two years). Discus- 
sions will be held on campus trends and their influences on the fraternity system. The packed 
agenda attests to the great amount of work to be done at this important meeting. 

Publications A new edition of the Fraternity's Book of Laws has been published and 
distributed to chapters and officials. This fourteenth edition includes all changes made in the 
laws since 1965; although there were few changes, the new edition was needed because in- 
ventory of the thirteenth edition (1965) was virtually exhausted. 

Sigma Phi Epsilon and Scholarship is scheduled for early publication with distribution in 
the fall. This completely new publication replaces the Scholarship Guide; National Director 
T. R. Porter, editor, was assisted in writing the new manual by Richard E. Pahre, Robert H. 
Ewalt, Edwin M. Kaiser, and Donald E. Kindle. 

Thirteen operational guides are printed at Headquarters for use by chapters and officials. 
It is a time-consuming task to write and print a guide ; even though 1,000 copies of each guide 
are printed, it is difficult to keep all the guides in stock and up to date (consider, for in- 
stance, how quickly things change on today's campus!). Four of the guides will be revised 
and printed this summer: Rushing Guide, Pledge Educators Guide, Manual on the Journal, 
and Officers Guide. 

One free copy of each guide is sent to chapters and officials; additional or replacement 
copies are available at $2 each from Headquarters. 

What L,eaders of Other Fraternities Are Saying 

Stephen J. Chadwick, Phi Gamma Delta: "What is a fraternity program? It is the means 
for accomplishing a goal. It can be the course that is taken to attain an office in the student 
government. It can be a practice schedule for intramurals. It can be a system for pledge study. 
It can be a committee working for better graduate relations, for social service or many other 
goals. If you were to take a close look at our Ritual, you would not only find the ideology 
behind the many goals of fraternity efforts, but you would also find the ideology behind the 
means or the programs that fraternities should be pursuing." 

Frederick D. Kershner, Jr., Delta Tau Delta, in The Rainbow: "In a very real sense, pledge 
education is simply orientation to fraternity, to campus, and to life. Here undergraduate 
interest is keen. Undergraduates do not want merely pledge orientation to the organization — 
that's old stuff — but pledge orientation to mature living. They want to know what fraternity 
really means, what it is good for, whether it will help our moral confusion about how to live."

different countries. "One decision made at 
one time saves money in media," he says. 
Young & Rubicam's key, he feels, is more

Some ideas which have "across the border 
appeals" are still pretty new for Europeans. 
Tragos observed that while French bosoms 
may be smaller than Dutch or German, basic 
appeals will make all women respond — bor- 
ders or no borders. And Y & R should know 
— not only because the agency has been in 
Europe a long time, but also because Y & R 
has found that their Playtex advertisements 
developed in the United States work very 
well in Europe too. 

Sometimes, said Tragos, you find yourself 
thinking about the international versus the 
national beard. Y & R has a special interest 
in beards — it handles Remington Rand. But 
"shaving is an international problem — get- 
ting that darned beard off. And Italian beards 
are not much different from the French or

In the final quarter of 1969 the team effort of 
dedicated fraternity leaders prevented pas- 
sage of a tax reform bill that would have been 
disastrous for the Greek-letter system. Many 
deserve credit, but most of all NIC President 
Zeke Loflin, of © H, who spearheaded the ap- 
peal to Senator Russell B. Long, A K E, 
chairman of the Senate Committee on Fi- 
nance. A number of executive secretaries and 
friends of fraternities gave countless hours of 
their time. The good will of our nation's Sena- 
tors and Congressmen tipped the balance in 
favor of the American college fraternity sys- 

By early August, the House had already 
passed the bill— HR 13270— which would 
have imposed a corporate tax of 48 per cent 

Zeke Loflin, Theta Xi, former presi- 
dent of NIC, spearheaded tax reform 
law amendment favorable to fraternities. 

on investment income "used to finance the so- 
cial activity of members of social clubs and 
similar groups." 

In his letter to Senator Long, Dr. Loflin 
pointed out that the activities of today's col- 
lege fraternities "are overwhelmingly directed 
toward educational, charitable and public 
welfare objectives." 

Following a series of conferences in Wash- 
ington in which a number of leaders took 
part, it was agreed to engage a law firm to 
draft an amendment and present appropriate 
written testimony at a Senate Finance Com- 
mittee hearing. 

It was arranged for Dr. Frank A. Rose, 
K A Order, former president of the University 
of Alabama, to represent the NIC at the hear- 

On October 24, the Senate Finance Com- 
mittee voted without dissent to adopt the 
amendment. On December 12 the Senate 
passed the bill that included the amendment; 
on December 16 the Joint House-Senate Com- 
mittee approved the amendment; on Decem- 
ber 18 the House and Senate approved the 
amended bill; and several days later Presi- 
dent Nixon, $ A A, signed it into law. 

Dr. Loflin's letter of testimony, dated Octo- 
ber 8, constituted a disarmingly honest and 
highly expert description. 

"College fraternities at the local level pro- 
vide," he wrote, "at no extra cost to the edu- 
cational institutions, housing and meal facili- 
ties for students and thereby relieve, to that 
extent, the educational institutions from a ma- 
jor capital commitment and on-going operat- 
ing expense and burden. In this respect the 
fraternities clearly subsidize the educational 
institutions themselves. 

"Additionally at the local level and 
strongly supported by the national organiza- 
tions, they provide a focus of disciplinary and 
supervisory control over students which, it is 


submitted, is far more effective in the overall 
than can be provided by the universities for 
students living in university facilities or off 
campus, as is increasingly prevalent in the 
larger universities. 

"Furthermore, they exercise strong pres- 
sure to raise scholastic achievements and as- 
sist by furnishing guidance and assistance 
and, has been shown, are highly effective in 
raising the scholastic performance of their 
member students. 

"College fraternities are increasingly en- 
gaged in organized efforts in student loans, 
scholarship awards, and other welfare and 
charitable undertakings. These are important 
and should be fostered for their own sake. 
Additionally, they are important for their role 
in inculcating our youth with the sense of re- 
sponsibility which the more fortunate mem- 
bers of our society should have toward those 
less fortunate." 

To tax the investment income of fraterni- 
ties, he asserted, would be to curtail seriously 
if not to force the abandonment of many 
beneficial educational projects. These in- 
cluded student loans, chapter house loans, 
scholarship awards, libraries, tutors in resi- 
dence, the leadership school, and countless 
philanthropies for the benefit of the disadvan- 
taged. To reduce such programs, or perhaps 
eliminate them altogether, "would be a most 
unfortunate and unwise result, and we 
strongly urge that no such tax be imposed," 
he concluded. 


Sigma Pi has awarded Sigma Phi Epsilon's 
past Grand President Bedford W. Black a 
certificate of appreciation. He was given the 
certificate "in recognition of his successful 
efforts in obtaining approval for the reactiva- 
tion of Sigma Pi Fraternity's Mother Chapter 
at Vincennes University, Vincennes, Indiana." 
The Alpha Chapter of Sigma Pi was reacti- 
vated on February 26, 1965, after 55 years of 
inactivity, after Black, who was chairman of 
the NIC Law Committee, recommended such 
an action, although since Vincennes was a 
junior college an amendment of the NIC by- 
laws was required to permit it. 

Authorization to beget Sigma Pi's Alpha 
anew was a happy act. Students graduating 
from Vincennes and continuing their educa- 
tion at a nearby four-year institution have 
spearheaded the establishment or rejuve- 
nation of chapters at Murray State, Ball 
State, Indiana State, and Purdue. Writes Ex- 
ecutive Secretary James L. Hills: 

"We find the type of students at Vincennes 
to be more loyal, devoted, sincere, and more 
appreciative of their elders than some of the 
students that are found today at U.C.L.A., 
Berkeley, Kenyon, and other campuses." 

The history of a social Greek-letter organiza- 
tion known as AAS, founded at the University 
of Utah in 1936, provides a helpful footnote 
to an account of coeducational influence in 
fraternity life. 

Established by 15 young men as a coeduca- 
tional fraternity under the sponsorship of the 
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 
AAS operated until 1967, with parallel chap- 
ters — one a man's and the other a woman's — 
within the same organization. During that year 
a group registered a protest that "AAE in its 
coeducational structure was not adequately 
meeting the needs expressed by many of those 
who were participating in it." As a conse- 
quence, officers of the organization restruc- 
tured it as a sorority — as the domain of so- 
rority women exclusively — while a separate 
organization, a men's fraternity to be known 
as SrX, was set up for the men. 

Chapters of AAS exist on some 30 campuses 
in the western United States. Their motto: 
"Toward excellence in body, mind, and spirit." 

The last existing chapter of the American 
Commons Club, founded at Denison University 
in 1921, became a chapter of AX on September 
25, 1969. 

Founded originally as a "non fraternity," the 
Commons Club sought to make available to all 
unaffiliated male students the advantages of fra- 
ternity life. The four stated principles of the 
fraternity were Democracy, Brotherhood, Uni- 
versity First, and the Open Door. Today the 
roster includes 18 dead chapters, none alive. 

Three NIC member fraternities — ZBT, *2A, 
and *En — have become unified as Zeta Beta 
Tau Fraternity, Inc.

The Purdue chapter observed its 65th anniver- 
sary at a banquet which a number of alumni at- 
tended, including Dan Robert Barkus, Ball State 
'64, faculty adviser, and Prof. Dave Clark, '19, for- 
mer faculty adviser. A birthday cake was shaped 
like the Sig Ep coat of arms. Brothers wore pur- 
ple and red ribbons with their pins. 

Kansas State Sig Eps celebrated the 52nd 
birthday of the chapter at a Founders' Day meet- 
ing and Golden Heart Ball on February 21. A cor- 
porate meeting was held in the afternoon and the 
new officers were introduced to the Alumni Board 
and gave short reports. After the meeting the 
alumni and chapter retired to the recently com- 
pleted State Room for refreshments and informal 
discussion. Many alumni attended the Golden 
Heart Ball that evening and a buffet the following 


Alabama undergraduates entertained the alumni 
at the annual Spring Alumni Banquet in March. 
The new chapter officers were introduced and plans 
for a proposed house addition were discussed.

Worthen Bank Building. Everyone who attended 
enjoyed the plush surroundings and beautiful 

Discussed by the group was the SPECTRA 
Campaign, 1969 Conclave, and a future banquet 
for 1970. New officers were elected as follows: 
president, Houck Reasoner, Arkansas State, '55; 
vice-president, Marvin Zimmerman, Arkansas 
State, '67; treasurer, John Ramsey, Arkansas, '63; 
secretary, Tim Irby, Arkansas, '67. 

The next regular meeting was set to be a dinner 
meeting at the Country Club of Little Rock, the 
date to be announced. — Tim Irby 

The Chico State chapter is honored to have 
as a member of its local alumni board Al Peters, 
who recently received his Golden Card from Mon- 
tana Alpha for 50 years of active participation in 
Sig Ep affairs. 

Cleveland State Sig Eps began their drive 
to raise funds for the new $50,000 addition to the 
house with an alumni dinner. The dinner was 
given by Chapter Counselor Chuck O'Neal, and 
was held in the remodeled dining room. The room 
is decorated to resemble a nineteenth" century ru- 
ral American restaurant. The purpose of the din- 
ner was to introduce the new room, which is pri- 
marily for alumni relations, and to get the new 
addition started. The response was favorable. 

Members of the Dallas Alumni Chapter have 
planned a party for graduating Sig Eps for the 
four-state region some time in June. 

Recent activities include the New Year's cham- 
pagne party, contribution of funds for rush at 
North Texas State, and a party in Dallas for 
North Texas pledges and their dates.

East Tennessee State alumni enjoyed a buffet 
with the chapter after the Homecoming game 
October 25. The Alumni at their quarterly meeting, 

after contributing to the housing fund, elected 
Randy Webb as new president, Fred Walton, vice-

Albright, treasurer. Sunday, the alumni defeated 
the active chapter in an enjoyable but muddy foot- 
ball game. Plans are being made for a basketball 
game, a spring bufiFet, and the annual Softball game. 
Alumni will also be returning for the spring formal 
May 23. 

At Huntington, W. Va., the alumni associa-

Dance at the Riverside Club on May 30 ; picnic and 
golf outing in August; and Homecoming Weekend 
October 24-25. 

Indiana State Sig Eps recently participated 
in the annual Campus Revue with nearly 50 
alumni in attendance. The event was followed by 
a party which most of the alumni attended. 

Indiana Tech undergraduates sponsored an 
active-alumni basketball game on January 25. The 
purpose of the tournament was to bring the 
alumni back for a big get-together, and to aflFord 
the undergraduates and the graduates an occasion 
for natural fellowship. It worked. Twenty-five 
alumni returned from near and far to participate 
in and watch the game. The actives also had a 
good turnout and furnished three teams, but the 
"old alums" were too good for the "young whip- 
persnappers." A party that evening provided relax- 
ation for all involved. 

This spring an undergraduate-Alumni golf or 
Softball tournament is planned.

The 12th Annual Kansas City Alumni Basket- 
ball Tournament is an outstanding experience. On 
a clear day in Overland Park, Kan., nine chapters, 
seven from Kansas and two from Missouri, 
matched their outstanding teams. The action took 
place in Shawnee Mission South High School. 

The fracas began promptly at 12:30 p.m., on 
three courts, with six professional referees and 
three timekeepers. The next four hours produced 
air-splitting sounds, leather ripping through net- 
ting, condemning shrill whistles of referees, the 
moans of the defeated, and the wild cheering of 
the victors. 

Fort Hays nudged Central Missouri State 59-44. 
Baker tilted Washburn 32-31. Emporia zaped 
Drury 40-37. Round 2. Kansas State tripped 
Baker 44-27. Kansas University rapped Wichita 
State 40-29. Round 3: Fort Hays rapped Kansas 
State 54-46. Emporia outflexed Kansas University 

Championship final: Fort Hays outgunned Em- 
poria 40-35 and bagged the 1970 championship for 
the second consecutive year. 

Co-captains of Guilford College basket-

Brother Bob Johnson, principal of Shawnee 
Mission South, obtained access to the tremendous 
athletic facilities offered by his outstanding 
school. Brother Johnson, Kansas, originated the 
Greater Kansas City alumni tournament twelve 
years ago. He also assisted Listen and Naismith in 
the development of the NAIA tournament which 
today has become the top college tournament in 
the U.S. 

Dr. Gene Haas assisted in securing the trophies. 
He also coordinated information obtained from 
ofiBcials in determining the winner. 

The NAIA tournament this year began on 
March 9 and ended March 14 at the Kansas City 
Municipal Auditorium. 

The Sigma Phi Epsilon award for sportsmanship 
is offered in memory of Dr. James Naismith, origi- 
nator of basketball, and Emil S. Listen, originator 
of the NAIA tourn£mient. Both of these great men 
we proudly acclaim as brothers in Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon. The Naismith-Liston Sportsmanship Award 
carries great prestige among tournament awards 
and trophies. Dr. Naismith, it will be remembered, 
originated the game of basketball at Y.M.C.A. 
College, Springfield, Mass., in 1891 

The 1970 presentation was made by the alumni 
chapter president to the team who placed fourth 
in the tournament, Guilford College, Greensboro, 
N.C. The trophy a beautiful gold, full-sized, bas-

East Tennessee's Project Avery 

IN JANUARY, 1970, East Tennessee State Sig 
Eps sent a copy of their alumni newsletter to 
Robert Douglas Avery, '65. In due time the news- 
letter was returned by his mother with the news 
that her son's Marine aircraft had been shot 
down over North Vietnam in May, 1968. Whether 
Robert Douglas Avery was alive or dea'd no one 
knew. Moreover, the Viet Cong prohibits war 
prisoners from receiving outside communication. 

Representatives of the chapter conferred with 
Doug's wife Grace and the decision was made to 
compose a letter to be sent to the North Viet- 
namese delegates to the Paris peace talks. The 
letter stressed that "Under provisions of the Ge- 
neva Convention, which your government endorsed 
in 1957, all prisoners should be given complete 
freedom to write to their families." 

Three thousand copies of the letter, which were 
to be signed individually, were printed. Project 
Avery, as it was named, was endorsed by the IFC 
at East Tennessee State and every sorority. The 
plea for more humane treatment of all prisoners — 
though it would take time to discover full results 
of the project — received the heartfelt cooperation 
of every student and faculty member in the cam- 
pus community.

ucation, operation of the chapter, finances, and

ternities over the hurdle that the system now 
faces. He says: "I believe the fraternity is an in- 
stitution that offers a man an opportunity to ex- 
plore and find what his greatest potential is. I feel

prepare for his future. He says: "The finest rusher 
for brotherhood and for Greeks that I know is my 
father, who, before my Sig Ep experience, was 
anti-Greek . . . and you know how hard it is to 
convert one of these!"

Mathews summarizes his philosophy of frater- 
nity as follows: "In our ever busy world of today, 
men need to have affiliations with gioups of men 
where they can come together for friendship and 
a common bond. My affiliation with Sigma Phi 
Epsilon Fraternity has to be one of the biggest 
events of my life. It bound me to a ritual with 
90,000 other brothers. This is the whole idea of 
the fraternity system — a binding brotherhood 
built on love, virtue, and diligence."

Meaning of Prayer 

AT THIS TIME, when so many of life's values 
are being questioned, we are bound to wonder 
whether there is any value in prayer. What can 
we possibly gain through worship? 

The answer is that when we worship we recog- 
nize God and feel that He recognizes us so that a 
divine companionship is formed. 

We realize that God is in every human heart 
that reaches out for Him. Each of us seeks to 
communicate with God in the manner that suits 
our own personality, for individuality is precious. 

God inspires lofty and purposeful sentiments. 
When we look upward, searching for some inti- 
mation of His power, we become conscious of 
His mystic presence — in ourselves and in all na- 

Prayer gives us complete ideal identification 
of self with God and His purpose with our lives. 
Through the relationship we are strengthened in 
spirit and in that lies the great value of prayer.

National Chaplain

Colorado Mines Sig Eps sponsored a discus- 
sion on the relevance of the fraternity system on 
the changing campus. Those present included the 
president of the school and several faculty mem- 
bers. Nearly all agreed that the fraternities need 
to change their emphasis in regards to campus 
activities. They must take a more active interest 
in the affairs of the school, the community, and 
the nation. 

The brothers have organized an environmental 
awareness program and are supervising the sending 
of letters to North Vietnam in an attempt to gain 
information about American prisoners of war. 

At Cornell, Rev. J. Hepner, Penn State, head 
of the Inter-Faith Service of Cortland State Uni- 
versity, led an open discussion on brotherhood 
with 40 members and 17 pledges. The after-dinner 
discussion is part of a new pledge program in 
which guest speakers are brought to campus to 
speak on aspects of fraternity life. The program 
was instituted this year by Donald MacKenzie, 

Detroit Sig Eps have instituted a Committee 
of Human Relations which will be concerned 
chiefly with drug use and abuse in the inner city 
of Detroit. The aim of this committee is to con- 
front issues contemporary and important to the 
community of Detroit. Bob Gates is chairman. 

Iowa Sig Eps in a symposium on Greek Rele- 
vance which was open to the public presented a 
panel which included a faculty member, a black 
fraternity man, an independent student, the IFC 
president, and the adviser to fraternities. Different 
ideas and criticisms arose through spirited discus- 
sion from both panel and audience. There was a 
general feeling that the Greek system does have a 
lot to offer if it can adjust by throwing away out- 
dated traditions and developing a contemporary 
approach to student group living which allows in- 
dependence to the individual student.

At Lehigh, Ken Helgeson, and two members of 
other fraternities have founded an organization 
known as the Fraternity Management Association 
(FMA). Lehigh has 31 fraternities. 

Individual fraternities experience a cyclical pat- 
tern of good and poor management which affects 
the entire fraternity system. Lehigh has both 
property interests and legal and moral responsibil- 
ity in the fraternities and necessarily must take an 
interest in their well-being. Finally it is recog- 
nized that the fraternity has practically unlimited 
potential to not only be self-sustaining but also to 
operate to the credit of the fraternity system. For 
these reasons the charge was given the IFC to de- 
velop a proposal for a uniform management pro- 

The Fraternity Management Association is ex- 
pected to be in full operation by September, 1970. 
Supervision and surveillance of fire safety, health 
and sanitation, and maintenance standards is the 
first function. The management function is to in- 
sure, through an advisory and consultive role, that 
each chapter is operated on sound financial prin- 
ciples, policies, and procedures. The final function 
of the FMA is a voluntary cooperative food-buy- 
ing program. Each of the three functions of the 
FMA are separately financed and budgeted. Also 
complete control of the FMA is in the hands of 
the Treasurers' Council, which was created from 
all chapter treasurers as the governing body. 

Michigan Sig Eps have set up a rush program 
and six man committee to work on an extensive 
summer contact-rush program. IFC at Michigan 
will send out post cards to all incoming freshmen 
for the fall term, and those cards which come 
back will be put on file in the IFC offices. The 
rush committee will contact these men and invite 
them to an activity right after school starts. In 
this way, it is hoped that the freshmen can be 
reached before they arrive on campus, and before 
other elements influence them. 

North Texas Sig Eps are distributhig Humble 
credit card applications each of which is worth 
twenty-five cents. The money received from the 
five thousand applications will be used to stage a 
big rush party in Dallas. 

Ohio Stale initiation week procedures were 
drastically revised for the winter neophyte class. 
It was felt that the old style of HeU Week was not 
proving relevant to the young college man any 
more, although it was not entirely eliminated. 

Instead of the traditional pledge project of pro- 
viding some physical improvement for the house, 
the eligibles were asked to try to analyze the 
chapter from their viewpoint, and draw up a plan 
for improving the structure as Ohio Gamma pre- 
pares to move into a new chapter house and a 
new decade. 

One emphasis of the report was on the pledge 
program. They believed that pledges should be 


treated as equal members of the house except in 
voting and ritualistic matters. Each pledge should 
be placed on a committee and given real responsi- 
bilities, so that he would feel that he was a part 
of the house from his first week with the pledge 
pin on. Through a seminar given by the commit- 
tee chairmen, the pledges could pick the area that 
interested them most. Eligibles would sit in on 
regular chapter meetings until the new business 
phase, at which point they would retire to their 
own proceedings. 

Other areas covered included rush, finances, the 
Little Sisters program, cabinet, and the executive 

The program was presented to the chapter dur- 
ing initiation week, and carefully analyzed and 
criticized by the actives. Following initiation, the 
annual chapter retreat was held. 

Parsons Sig Eps are in the second semester of 
rebuilding with the help of a new seven-week lec- 
ture program for their pledges. This new program 
has brought their manpower from five, in the fall, 
to 24. Treating the pledges as men, to learn the 
responsibilities of operating a fraternity, has 
brought unity to the entire house, as well as the 
pledge class. Spare the board and unify the frater- 
nity is the new policy at Parsons.

In honor of their recently deceased brother, 
Craig Svoboda, the Sig Eps of Illinois Tech con- 
tributed money to the American Cancer Society in 
hope that, soon in the future, lives such as that of 
Brother Svoboda's will not be lost to this disease. 

We appeal to all chapters to give what they can 
no matter how little. — J.S. 

AS A PLEDGE at Illinois Tech, I came to learn 
about brotherhood and to understand it from 
Craig Svoboda, a deeply loved and respected 
brother, who died recently. I first met Craig on 
the night of his initiation last October. Shortly 
after his initiation he had to again return to the 
hospital for more treatments. Prior to his initia- 
tion, Craig had spent two years between the hos- 
pital and school. Craig, while he was in the hospi- 

tal in November seemed quite himself when peo- 
ple visited, but I remembered how his parents al- 
ways left the room when we visited and behaved 
despairingly, for you see Craig did not want oth- 
ers to suffer or share his pain with those he liked 
and so he put up a front to aU of us. He went 
home for a little while in the end of November, 
but in December he was forced to return to the 
hospital. Craig, quite critical, had finally aban- 
doned his front. He now waited and hoped. We at 
the house would sit around and talk up medical 
advancements and achievements but one could not 
help but feel despaired when someone close is 
alone in his fight for life. In January, Craig lost 
his consciousness with the world, due to his nu- 
merous treatments and drugs. He didn't even rec- 
ognize his best friends. I, myself, had planned to 
visit him in the third week of January, but I was 
forced to wait another week because of work at 
school. I never made that visit. For by Monday of 
that week, Craig died. It was a stunning blow to 
the house, and I had never seen so many people 
stricken with grief at one time, as I did then. No- 
body wanted to believe it, and there was nothing 
that could be said that wouldn't sound trite. To us 
at Illinois Tech, this was a great loss. At the 
wake, the cold, hard reality was shocking. Many 
people came to pay their respect. I was shocked, 
along vnth others, to see a few people who could 
sit and gossip at the wake. Many sat as in a daze. 
We were happy that our brother was at peace, but 
after leaving there, many of us could say nothing 
for quite some time. I, myself, congratulate the 
Svobodas for the courage they showed throughout 
the whole ordeal. Craig, in the past, planned 
many road rallies for the house, so in his memory 
every road rally in the future will be in his honor. 
I had known Craig, shared good times with him 
and he in turn had taught me how to be a 
brother. He taught me to be considerate of others, 
to be diligent in my efiforts even if they seemed 
futile, and he showed everyone that to be a 
brother in Sigma Phi Epsilon was truly a sacred 
honor, something to be proud of £«id never 
ashamed of. But most of all Craig showed me 
brotherhood, for he put the feelings of those 
around him above his own.

Madison doesn't recognize housing on campus, 
so the colony decided to seek a place elsewhere to 
meet, watch TV, take dates, and to party. The 
place is a former service station which was built 
in 1922 and has been used as a museum, store, 
and so on. The brothers and the pledges have 
made the Station a real showplace. Many thanks 
go to the chapters who donated pennants repre- 
senting their schools. The lodge has 18 acres 
which the brothers use for sports and picnics. 

Phil Wetzel is head of the youth program at the 
Presbyterian Church. In their drive for the schol-

rority on campus to explain the history, goals, and 
pledgeship of Sigma Phi Epsilon. It was re- 
quested that the names of interested men be given 
to the rush chairmen and this action resulted in 
an enthusiastic response. — James W. Ward

being constructed on the site of the former house 
at 801 Park Street, is expected to be completed by 
July 15, 1970, and dedicated at 1970 Homecoming. 

Ground-breaking ceremonies were held Satur- 
day, October 25 during the Homecoming weekend. 
Presiding over the ceremonies was Bill Logel, 
president of the alumni board. A benediction was 
given by Father Carlo of the Episcopalian Church 
in RoUa. Brother Logel gave a short speech in 
which he outlined the history of the project and 
the goals of the chapter. 

Dr. Merl Baker, chancellor of the university, 
praised Sigma Phi Epsilon on its undertaking and 
performance on campus. RoUa Mayor Logan also 
gave a short talk. Also in attendance were Peter 
Hanson, treasurer of the alumni board; Bill 
French, chapter counselor ; Dick Rechtien, faculty 
adviser; Ron Filers, chapter president; alumni, 
parents, and brothers. After the ceremonies, a 
cocktail reception was held at the chapter's tem- 
porary residence.

house 82 men. The 3,300-square-feet basement will 
have a large chapter room, a serving area, a 1,550- 
square-feet recreational area, and storage space. 
The rustic ground level is appointed with exposed 
beams and rough rock walls. It will contain a liv- 
ing room complete with fireplace, a library, an all- 
electric kitchen, and dining facilities for 90 peo- 
ple. The second and third floors will have two- 
and four-man rooms, restroom and shower facili- 
ties, study room and lounge on each floor. 

The chief credit for this dream coming true 
goes to the alumni, who have given much time 
and effort, and who established a housing fund to 
augment the Grand Chapter Housing Fund loan 
and other investments. Each member contributed 
monthly to this local fund. 

At North Carolina, the chapter room has 
been completely redecorated and opened to the 
public for the first time as the Neil Wester Room.

tions were made possible by undergraduate contri- 
butions and a bequest left to the fraternity by 
Brother Wester.

Alabama's Foreign Student 

WALTER CERVANTES, a foreign exchange stu- 
dent from Peru, is visiting Alabama Sig Eps. 
Under a program sponsored by the IFC, Walter 
and several other foreign exchange students are 
taking their meals at fraternities. They spend a 
month at each house. Walter came to the house 
in February and was asked to stay for the re- 
mainder of the semester. 

A junior in the school of engineering and a 
member of Theta Tau, he is president of the 
International Students Association and is well 
known on campus. Although he likes American 
football he prefers soccer, which he plays for the 

The chapter enjoys talking with Walter about 
how South Americans feel about the United States 
and he in turn enjoys telling about the places 
he has seen in America. Last summer he worked 
in New York City and he hopes to visit more of 
the country before he graduates next year. 

Having a foreign exchange student with the 
chapter has been a rewarding experience. The 
brothers have a new appreciation of the American 
image and how it is viewed in Latin America. Ala- 
bama Sig Eps also hope to have had a small part 
in furthering a new understanding with the Latin 
American neighbors, through Walter's eyes.

Cyclists in Hi^h Gear 

INDIANA SIG EPS have moved their Little 500 
program into high gear in preparation for the 
"World's Greatest College Weekend." Highlighted 
by the Little 500 bicycle race, each year the week- 
end helps raise over $15,000 for scholarships given 
to worthy Indiana University students. 1970's 
Little 500 marks the program's 20th birthday and 
will add to the $246,700 already awarded in the 
form of scholastic aid. 

This year the Sig Eps are led once again by 
All-Star rider and 3-year veteran Tom Battle of 
Columbus. Also back from last year's team are 
Bob Henderson of Cicero, Joe Lattak of Gary, 
and Mark Wade of Columbus. Newcomers are 
Tim Brannigan of Birmingham, Mich., and Tom 
Davis of Indianapolis. 

Stetson University Sig Eps played host to the 
Indiana bike team in Florida this spring vacation. 
The annual trip provides the riders with a rigid 
training schedule which includes riding more 
than 50 miles per day. 

Last year Indiana Beta Chapter pulled in five 
trophies including the prized Sportsmanship Cup 
given to the campus housing unit which has the 
best over-all Little 500 program.

■ The Iowa Sig Ep house recently became the 
home away from home for Joseph Davida, a 
foreign student from Baghdad, Iraq. Joe, who 
speaks fluent English, the brothers say has proved 
to be an unusual educational and fellowship ex- 
perience for the entire house. He seems to enjoy 

Joseph Davida 
Iowa's foreign student 

most of all American girls and learning about 
American customs and folkways. He is also play- 
ing soccer for the Iowa soccer team. He plans to 
become a dentist. His older brother, George, a 
Sig Ep and a physics instructor at Iowa, also 
came from Iran 7 years ago. 

■ 91,000th initiate. Glenn Hookstra, a sopho- 
more majoring in physical therapy at Nebraska, 

was initiated as the 91,000th member of Sigma 
Phi Epsilon on March 8. He is the 1106th mem- 
ber to be initiated by Nebraska Alpha. 

Hookstra, whose home city is Octavia, plans to 
complete his education at the University of Ne- 
braska-Omaha in 1973. 

■ Snow, sleet, the dark of night, and what-not 
can sometimes stay the swift couriers of the 

U. S. Post Office from completing their appointed 
round, but with the Sig Eps of the Illinois Institute 
of Technology in Chicago, material for the Sig Ep 
Journal must go through. 

Consequently, on the deadline date for the May 
issue — March 25 — which happened to be during the 
Easter break- — Illinois Tech Sig Eps John Richard 
Solomon, Brian Fox, George Lykos, and Dennis 
Griswald got into their car with a packet of reports 
and photos for the Journal and delivered them 
into the hands of the amazed editor in Menasha, 
Wisconsin. The round trip in round numbers is 
400 miles! 

■ The Colorado state legislature has changed 
the name of Colorado State College (Greeley), 

home of Sigma Phi Epsilon's Colorado Epsilon 
Chapter, to University of Northern Colorado. 

■ Russ Hill, Southeast Missouri State, is the 
author of the prize-winning commercial for 

Alka-Seltzer which shows prisoners in a dining 
hall banging their cups on the table and yelling 

John H. Sim, editor of Missouri Zeta Alumni 
News, tells the story in his March, 1970, issue. 
Hill entered the idea in the advertising agency's 
contest, won the contest, a trip to New York, 
and a job which he plans to begin after he earns 
his degree. 

■ A number of rewarding graduate assistant- 
ships are available at the University of Ver- 
mont for qualified men and women interested in 
working as residence hall advisors while pursuing 
a graduate degree. In addition, assistantships in 
several student personnel offices are also available. 

Candidates will have an opportunity to obtain
