Jr PATERNITY LIFE, as many things that are ideally ac- 
claimed, does not come naturally. Often newly activated 
men find themselves disappointed at the outset of their 
fraternity life. Too frequently these men expect brother- 
hood to be free and flowing and expect it to come to 
them. This is not so, and is most likely the reason for 
many dissatisfied and apathetic brothers. 

The whole situation I feel stems from the difference 
between a club and a fraternity. Members of a club have 
joined together for a common cause and in many cases 
the members are casual acquaintances. Members of a 
fraternity have also joined together for a common cause, 
but they have gone much further with the building of 
their relationships. I feel it is the duty of each fraternity 
member to know his brothers and to know them well. 
I realize I would be talking idealism if I were to expect every brother to be an 
everlasting close friend to every brother; naturally some people get along with one per- 
sonality much better than possibly another. But if fraternities are going to survive in 
today's fast-moving society, we are going to have to expound upon this one area. In 
rush we can no longer use big parties as a main selling point, because freshmen coming 
to our campuses are looking for something much more relevant. When asked as to why 
they pledged Sig Ep, our past and I might add very large pledge class answered that it 
was because of the closeness and the strong friendships they saw in our chapter. It 
seems odd that the fraternity system is criticized today, because in actuality it promotes 
and practices togetherness, which is one of the main objectives of the age of Aquarius. 
We have a great thing going, if we just don't let it die. There are too many frater- 
nity people who feel that fraternity life is a thing of the past and are willing to let it 
die in what they call its proper perspective. Fortunately, there are enough of us who see 
the relevancy in the fraternity system and are working not only to preserve it, but to 
create something even better. 

Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded on the virtue of brotherly love, and possibly be- 
cause of this we are one of the strongest national fraternities. Each chapter should take 
a long look at itself; if it is a house full of apathy and factionalism, there is then a 
strong need for brother-oriented projects. Brotherhood takes care of itself once brothers 
make the initial attempt to get together, work together, and have fun together.

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. 

Cover Story 

This letter is to request that you please con- 
sider featuring the Sig Ep victory in Indiana Uni- 
versity's Little 500 as the cover story for the Sep- 
tember issue of the Journal. 

The race, the center event of the "World's Great- 
est College weekend," helps raise over $15,000 
annually for distribution to worthy students in the 
form of academic scholarships and provides an 
opportunity for brothers of all fraternities to pull 
together to work for their respective houses and 
the university. 

Coca-Cola, our financial sponsor, was quite im- 
pressed with our team and spirit of brotherhood,

and scrapbooks in writing a chapter history. 

and as the result of our winning the race has 
started to investigate the possibilities of using our 
bike riders in their "real thing" advertising cam- 
paign. Rumor has it that our boys can already be 
seen (you have to look quickly) in one of Coke's 
television commercials currently being broadcast. 

Although the major effort in the Little 500 pro- 
gram was produced by our bike riders, each man 
in the house took a vital interest in the workings of 
our team. For this big weekend each year, Sig Eps 
from the other seven chapters in the state of Indi- 
ana visit us to take part in the festivities. This year 
they were only too happy to help us celebrate our 
victory and lend their voices to more than just a 
few choruses of "Drink Beer." In Florida, Stetson 
University Sig Eps played host to our bike team as 
they took their annual training trip over spring 
vacation, a trip which gives them opportunity to 
practice their skills in the warm Florida sun. 

The enthusiasm generated from our victory was 
truly overwhelming. The response from alumni 
has been excellent, and our rush program has taken 
on a new life. It's all so amazin'. 

I am quite sure that you get many requests from 
various chapters asking that their stories be used 
for feature material. I only ask that you give the 
articles and pictures that I have enclosed your 
careful consideration. 

Thank you very much. — Stephen H. Downs, 
Indiana Beta, 580 Stineman St., Wabash, Ind. 

An Historian Writes 

I was happy to have the opportunity to con- 
tribute two articles to the Journal which might 
be helpful in getting some of our chapters off on 
the right start in writing their histories. 

I don't think there is anything new in Cham- 
paign, other than I am almost finished with my dis- 
sertation and I have accepted a job as an Assistant 
Professor at the University of Tennessee to begin 
in September. — Pedro Campa, Illinois Alpha, 
1105 South Fourth Street, Champaign, 111. 

Trouble at Tetnple 

Apropos of the letter sent to you by Mr. Paul 
B. Slater published in the May, 1970, issue of the 
Journal, I never seem to be able to find any in- 
formation in the Journal about Pennsylvania Mu 
at Temple University. 

I see the chapter is still listed in the Directory 
of Chapters.— William H. Morrison, Pennsyl- 
vania Mu, '31, Executive Vice-president, West Jer- 
sey Hospital, Camden, N.J. 

► Temple's campus newspaper recently car- 
ried a long news story concerning Pennsyl- 
vania Mu. It begins: 

Sigma Phi Epsilon (Sig Ep), in protest over 
what the house president Donn Kurzinski, '71, calls 
the "archaic policies" of the Fraternity Coordinat- 

ing Council (FCC), has voted to withdraw their 
support from that organization. 

The fraternity has also decided to become 
coed . . . 

No comment is necessary, except perhaps 
to say that many fraternity chapters on urban 
campuses are in deep trouble today, and need 
the help of strong, wise brothers as well as 
from the administration if they are to survive. 


Chance 3§eeting 

I just returned from Vietnam and wanted to 
write you particularly about a chance meeting 
with a Bowling Green brother in Cam Ranli Bay, 
South Vietnam. 

The brother is Tom Read, '68, a former officer 
in the chapter who completed service as a Medevac 
pilot and is scheduled to return stateside before 

When I met Tom I was in a Security section. 
Having completed my active duty in mid-June, I 
am back on the administrative staff at Bowling 
Green and want to extend an invitation to the 
brothers to stop by to see me. 

By the way, you may be interested to know that 
the Journal reached me all the way to Cam Ranh 
Bay. This may be the farthest our magazine has 
ever traveled. — Jerry Richardson, Bowling Green, 
'66, Bowling Green State University, Ohio 

Nix on the Hard Sell 

I would like to take advantage of my position 
as Journal correspondent to express disagree- 
ment with a statement which was printed in the 
May issue. I was dismayed to read that a Sig Ep 
chapter, in an effort to promote its rush program, 
was making every effort to reach the incoming 
freshmen before their arrival on campus and "be- 
fore other elements reach them." 

This kind of activity is not, I understand, con- 
fined to chapters on large campuses. When I say 
"this kind of activity," I refer to the so-called 
"heavy rushing" which is beginning to take its 
toll on the American college fraternity system as a 

At the risk of sounding extremely "hip," to 
what the incoming university student is thinking, 
let me re-emphasize what has been stressed time 
and time again, by our own Staff Representatives 
as well as by critics of the fraternity system. The 
new student (and here I say "new" because he is, 
at least, very different from brothers who are se- 
niors and juniors now) is seeking involvement in 
his life with the basic element of brotherhood pre- 
vailing. Whether he finds this spirit at a fraternity 
house or at a hippie commune, atmosphere is up to 
individual brothers of the house in question. There 
should be, I feel, no mass attempt to sway the 
prospective rushee before he gets to the campus. 

BMOC John Hayes 

other than perhaps letting him know that you do 

The rushee must feel the spirit of brotherhood, 
naturally and honestly, which he is unable to do 
from a stack of propaganda that clutters his mail- 
box during the summer months preceding his col- 
lege stay. This kind of rushing gives the fraternity 
the overtones that it is trying to give him the hard 
sell in order to fill the fraternity house. Rather we 
should give the prospective pledge the opportunity 
to see the brotherhood in action — perhaps in some 
community service project or university involve- 
ment. Then let each brother display the spirit of 
brotherhood that will make a rushee see that Sig 
Ep is more than a hard-sell group. 

I am sure that men in many chapters can attest 
to my observations by what they have already ex- 
perienced during their rush programs. — John P. 
Hayes, Jr., Corresponding Secretary, University 
of Detroit Chapter, c/o Student Union, Detroit,

"the real thing." A checkered flag 
waves proudly over the Sig Ep home at lU as 
the result of a first place finish in the Little 
500 Bicycle race, the featured event in the 
"World's Greatest College Weekend." Four 


months of hard work were rewarded when 
three-year veteran and all-star rider Tom Bat- 
tle brought the Coca-Cola sponsored Sig Eps 
across the finish line ahead of 32 other teams. 
Winning. That's what it was all about. 
Sigma Phi Epsilon had never won Indiana 

University's Little 500, but they had certainly 
played bridesmaid often enough. 1970 was 
different. Sig Eps just wouldn't be denied as 
they overcame three wrecks and put together 
a winning effort that enabled the chapter to 
close its school year with the immense satis- 
faction of a job well done. 

Riding together for the winners were Bob 
Henderson of Cicero, Tim Branigin of Bir- 
mingham, Mich., Mark Wade and Tom Bat- 
tle, both of Columbus. 

The Little 500 program, sponsored by the 
Student Foundation, not only provides a good 
time for the university's 26,000 students and 
their guests, and a chance to experience true 
brotherhood, but raises more than $15,000 an- 
nually to be distributed in the form of scho- 
lastic aid to worthy Indiana University stu- 
dents. The program, now starting its 21st 
year, has awarded over $246,000 to students 
through academic scholarships. 

Dances, floats, trike races, boat races, and 
the variety show, headlined this year by Pe- 
tula Clark, surround the featured event of the 
weekend: the grueling 50-mile, 200-lap bike 
race in which highly conditioned men com- 
pete in teams of four for the highly valued 
first place trophy, and the prestige, honor, 
and satisfaction that accompany it. 

Importance of the Race

It may seem to many people, considering

past the troubles of today. It lifted us, even

Each phase of fraternity life enters into 
preparing for this race. Almost every spring- 
time activity centers around the Little 500 
program. We won it. Alumni love it, rushees 
go for it in a big way, and each brother takes 
a new look at himself and his fraternity. It's 
our turn to be on top, and lU Sig Eps plan to 
make the most of it. 

William E. Walk, Jr., Southern California. 

THE Rotarian for July 1970 presents the in- 
spiring success story of William E. Walk, 
Jr., of Ontario, Calif., president of the U.S.C. 
chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon in 1939, who on 
July 1, 1970, became president of Rotary In- 

Judge Walk, who received his appointment 
to the judicial bench from Governor Reagan 
of the State of California in 1969, is charac- 
terized as "versatile — judge, lawyer, business- 
man, hard-working community servant, 
sportsman, father, husband." Apart from this, 
needless to say, the very process of becoming 
president of Rotary — an organization made 
up of 676,000 business and professional exec- 
utives in 148 countries — requires the unique 
genius for leadership that the man possesses. 

Even before his college days, friends say 
that Bill Walk demonstrated a penchant for 
persistence, dedication, and old-fashioned 
hard work. However, while the leadership 
genius of Rotary's new president may be ex- 
plained in part through such qualities of 
character, additional insight is provided by 
the man's credo, which he states in his own 
words as follows : 

"I think that everyone should early in life 
establish his own personal goals. These goals, 

William E. Walk Jr. 

though attainable, should be established at a 
point which causes him to constantly reach 
and extend himself to attain them." 

As a young student, Bill Walk was active in 
debating, public speaking, dramatics, school 
athletics, and was president and speaker of 
his graduation class. At U.S.C. Law School he 
had the unusual distinction of being elected 
each consecutive year as class president. 

Following World War II, after he had put 
away his Naval Commander's uniform and 
gold braid, he applied himself to the active 
practice of law in one of the oldest law firms 
in San Bernardino County, Calif. Though he 
called himself a "country lawyer," he pro- 
vided legal advice to many leading corpora- 
tions and banks and was at one time counsel 
to the world's largest vineyard. He is a mem- 
ber of the board of directors and trustees of 
many organizations. 

Although characterized as a man who is 
"always busy and on the go," it is noted that 
he "always has time to be considerate of oth- 
ers." And of course no one worked harder in 
the local, state, and regional Rotary organiza- 
tion than he. He is a thorough believer in ser- 
vice to his fellow man. 

Indeed, Rotary's new world leader feels 
that his organization can help solve our envi- 
ronmental problems and that the economic 
gap, the generation gap, the sociological gap, 
and the ecology gap can be bridged. 

In his eloquent message, "Bridge the 
Gaps," presented in the same issue of The Ro- 
tarian in which his success story appears. 
Judge Walk declares: "We have indeed built 
an never-ending stairway to the stars by our 
exploration in space. Now we must spend 
equal time and effort helping to build a stair- 
way that will assist in raising all people out 
of hunger and poverty, that will help solve 
the problems existing between adults and 
youth, that will solve man's environmental 
problems, and that will make our air breatha- 
ble, our water drinkable, our streams, rivers, 

Wary's New World leader 

and lakes clear and palatable, our families 
safe to walk the earth. Society refers to some 
of these problems as the economic gap, the 
sociological gap, the generation gap, the envi- 
ronmental gap, and ecology gap. The exact 
terms may differ in various languages. But 
the problems are the same. They are real! 
They are pressing! We have reached the 
point of no return!" 

"What can Rotarians do?" he asks — and 
then proceeds to ansv^^er the question in ex- 
plicit language — a language which holds a 
ringing challenge for his brothers in Sigma 
Phi Epsilon as well as for his fellow Rotar- 

He goes on to say that "This is an instance 
that governmental agencies and corporate ac- 
tion need the thinking, planning, and guid- 
ance of individuals — only individual action 
can be totally effective." 

The question that every man should ask 
himself is this: "Isn't it a humbling and even 
frightening thought that man, who has 
achieved so much by his exploration of space, 
has not given the same amount of thinking, 
time, and energy to problems facing all in- 
habitants of our spaceship which we noncha- 
lantly call Earth?" 

Bill Walk's Proposal 

We can bridge the gaps between people. 

1. The generation gap between young peo- 
ple and adults, between senior citizens and 
their juniors, can be bridged through support 
of youth organizations, career conferences, 
and community programs to help ease the lot 
of the elderly and crack the problems facing 
today's youth. 

2. The racial gap can be bridged through 
improving communication in both directions 
and fighting bigotry wherever it may exist. 

3. The economic gap that now leaves some 
fellow human beings suffering from hunger, 
inadequate housing, little or no medical care, 
can be bridged through job training programs 

For as long as he can remember, 
Bill Walk has set himself goals 
to attain and he has learned to 
extend himself to attain them. 

for the unemployed, help to small-business- 
men, the attraction of new businesses to the 
community, and other means. 

4. The ethical gap in business and profes- 
sional ethics can be bridged through encour- 
aging pride in workmanship, practicing The 
Four-Way Test in your business relations, 
supporting your trade association, profes- 
sional association and its code of ethics, and 
through improving relations between consum- 
ers and retailers, manufacturers and consum- 
ers, and employers and employees. 

JFe can bridge the gaps between nations. 

1. Again, the economic gap between devel- 
oped and developing countries can be bridged 
through educational programs for young men 
in technical and agricultural fields, programs 
of technical assistance, the small-business 
clinic, and World Community Service. 

2. The communication gap between all peo- 
ples can be bridged through youth exchange, 
Interact, an increased support of The Rotary 
Foundation, and correspondence and personal 
contact between Districts and among Rotary 
Clubs and individual Rotarians in different 

!Fe can bridge the gaps between man and 
his environment. 

The environmental gap can be bridged 
through educational programs that would 
guide enlightened people toward working for 
clean air and clean water and working to re- 
store and then maintain the natural ecological 
balance in their communities and their coun- 


Public Relations: 
Performance Plus Recognition 



PUBLIC RELATIONS equals performance plus 
recognition, according to Dr. Hunter Mc- 
Cartney, professor of journalism at West Vir- 
ginia University. As in business, government, 
and athletics, public relations is becoming in- 
creasingly necessary to the fraternity. In to- 
day's fast-moving world, a fraternity can no 
longer survive on pure reputation. Moreover, 
the reputation must be nurtured by constant 

A good PR program can bring a fraternity 
to new heights of popularity both on campus 
and off. Public relations costs nothing but the 
time and effort of the few people involved in 
fraternity publicity. During the past year at 
West Virginia University, our PR program 
was developed to a much greater degree than 
it had been before. But, it still doesn't come 
close to being the all-out publicity effort that 
it could be. By reviewing the situation at 
WVU, one may relate it to his own chapter's 

First, a publicity chairman must be ap- 
pointed and a committee formed. These men 
should be capable and willing to do the job. 
At West Virginia, we had the following media 
open to our use. 

— campus newspaper 

— Greek newspaper 

— local newspapers 

— hometown newspapers 

— campus radio 

— campus TV 

— local radio and TV 

— The Journal 

Respect and admiration for the chapter 
must first be gained at home. This means that 


Journal coverage should be increased. At 
West Virginia, we had only five actives in 
1964, and were down to only one member the 
year before. We now have over 80 members 
and are considered in the top one-fourth of 
the 20 campus fraternities. However, how 
would our brothers over the country have 
known of our comeback without the Journal 
to inform them (see February Journal) ? 

Four newspapers were available for our 
use. For daily fraternity events, we used the 
Greek Letter, campus fraternity and sorority 
newspaper serving 2,000 Greeks and 3,000 in- 
dependents amidst WVU's 15,000 student 
body population. Of course, total readership 
involves nearly the whole campus, as the pa- 
per is passed from hand to hand. We had 
three staff members, more than any other 
house, so we had little trouble getting the 
news inserted. We had some difficulty with 
our campus newspaper, because it was anti- 

good PR program 
in bring a fraternity to new heights. 
s in business, government, and 
hletics, public relations is becoming 
icreasingly necessary to the fraternity 

Greek. In fact, when we sent over 1,000 let- 
ters for Project Avery (started by East Ten- 
nessee Sig Eps), we had much better cover- 
age by the local newspapers {Morgantown 
Post and Dominion News) than by the cam- 
pus paper. Sig Eps made front page of the 
second section for three straight days, includ- 
ing pictures, following a one-page press re- 
lease that took ten minutes to type. Home- 
town papers are always glad for a "local boy 
makes good" type of story. Letters should be 
sent with pictures, if possible, when a man 
pledges, is initiated, wins office, or holds an 
important position on campus. 

Although somewhat more reluctant to ac- 
cept material than newspapers, radio and TV 
may be used where an important event is con- 

Of course, major news media are often slow 
to accept fraternity publicity. For instance, 
we at West Virginia would have no trouble 
getting a press release published in the Mor- 
gantown Post, but the Sig Eps at Temple 
would have some difficulty with the Philadel- 
phia Bulletin. This situation may be averted 
by going to the weekly suburban newspapers 
(in Temple's case. The Globe, published in 
Montgomery County) with press releases. 

A good public relations program not only 
helps rush, but also creates better will be- 
tween parents and the fraternity. Moreover, 
the program brings a firmer Sig Ep-Commu- 
nity relationship into being. Respect from 
other college students, both Greek and inde- 
pendent, is an almost certain result of good 
PR. Finally, the program gets the chapter in 
the public eye, the first step in maintaining a 
top reputation. 

National Director John Hartman with Sparty. 

Michigan State's 
Remarkable Mascot, "Sparty" 


THERE is one Michigan State football fan who 
has been attending the Spartans' home games for 
13 years. His name is "Sparty," he is 15 years old, 
and he rarely enters Spartan Stadium unnoticed. 

The 5-foot, 40-pound fiberglass figure, which is 
the property of the brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon, 
spurs the Spartans on to victory at all home 
games. The giant head is carried by one of the 
Sig Eps who is able to see through Sparty's 
mouth. Six other brothers escort the mascot every- 

Sparty's early history is somewhat vague. He 
was apparently built by a faculty member about 
1955. Theta Xi originally owned him until 1957 
when they left MSU and the Sig Eps bought the 
mascot head. 

In 1959, Sparty was interviewed by a television 
sportscaster at a home game with Ohio State. The 
brief talk was broadcast nationally and Sparty's 
fame became secure. In 1961, he appeared at the 
Republican State Convention as a publicity stunt 
for a candidate who was seeking election. During 
a Chamber of Commerce promotional visit by 
Miss Tish Howard (Playboy's "Miss July 1966") ,

The College 

The Defiance College was incorporated in 
1850 as The Defiance Female Seminary. The 
first building, Defiance Hall, was built in 
1884. The first classes were held in 1886 with 
courses primarily in teacher education and 
commercial subjects. From this time on, the 
college was coeducational and known as The 
Defiance College. 

At first the college was not related to any 
church but at the turn of the century the col- 
lege became associated with the Christian 
Church. Today The Defiance College is re- 
lated to the United Church of Christ. 

The last decade has been one of consider- 
able growth; 14 new buildings have appeared 
and property holdings have increased. Enroll- 
ment has doubled and the yearly budget has 
increased 400 per cent. 

In 1967 a 4:1:4 study program was 
adopted. Under this program the year is di- 
vided into two four-month semesters and a 
one-month term. Under this calendar a variety 
of learning experience and a well-timed vaca- 
tion schedule are possible. Throughout the 
year study in depth is encouraged, especially 
during winter term when students focus on 
one particular field of study.

more than $3,600 from shopping centers in and 
around the Houston area for the Heart Fund

The Colony 

Ohio Omicron's local chapter was con- 
ceived in the spring of 1967. D. Fredrick 
Metzger, Conrad K. Clippinger, and Edward 
B. Hawley formed the chapter under the 
name of Phi Sigma Chi. They were striving 

for a bond between men based on honor, 
truth, and brotherhood, while still retaining 
their individuality. 

A year after its establishment, Phi Sigma 
Chi grew until it ^ffas chartered by The Defi- 
ance College. By the spring of 1969, two 
years after its beginning, Phi Sigma Chi had 
grown from 17 to 56 men. At this time the 
brotherhood moved from temporary apart- 
ment housing to their present house, at 409 
Nicholas St., Defiance, Ohio. 

On May 2, 1969, local Phi Sigma Chi re- 
ceived notice that it had been accepted as a 
colony of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. The 
efforts of the brothers of the new colony did 
not slow at this point, for their spirit was pro- 
jected toward the future. The Defiance Col- 
lege Sig Eps have been active in campus so- 
cial life with both Greeks and independents. 

The fraternities on campus include, Tau 
Kappa Epsilon and Theta Xi. Alpha Xi Delta, 
(national sorority) and Gamma Omega 
Kappa and Beta Sigma, local sororities com- 
plete the Greek system. 

Tradition plays a very important part in 
Greek life. Each spring there is a Beta Sigma 
vs. Sig Ep Softball game. There is the annual 
all-campus sing in which the Sig Eps took 
first place this year. Greek Weekend is a tra- 
dition on the Defiance campus, in which the 
Sig Eps take an active part. The annual 
spring formal is the biggest event of the year. 
The highlight of the 1970 spring formal was 
the activation of the Sigma Epsilon colony of 
The Defiance College as an enthusiastic new 
chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Back to Old Virginia Once More 

Madison College welcomes 
Virginia's ninth Sig Ep chapter — 

the first to be installed 
in the Old Dominion in 50 years 


SIGMA Phi Epsilon initiated its ninth 
chapter in Virginia and the first in this 
state in 50 years when the colony at Madison 
College, Harrisonburg, Va., was officially in- 
stalled on April 11. 

Events leading up to the big day began the 
previous Wednesday with the arrival of Head- 
quarters staff representative Larry Atkins, 
who supervised installation activities. Two 
days later initiating teams arrived from the 
University of Richmond and Randolph-Macon 

The following Saturday morning was a 
memorable one for 25 colony actives. Installa- 
tion was held at the Asbury United Methodist 
Church beginning at 8:30 a.m. and continu- 
ing into the early afternoon. By 3:00 p.m., the 
following men had been initiated: Charles E. 
Ashcraft, W. Glen Bumgardner, Michael A. 
Cappeto, Richard A. Crist, Russell A. Dun- 
son, Henry J. Fawcett, W. John Gillette, Jerry 
W. Green, John C. Heerlein, Michael Hol- 
leran, Daniel L. Higdon, W. Lee Kerns, Jr., 
Scott Mackey, Patrick M. McLaughlin, Den- 
nis C. Moore, Steven F. Nardi, J. Robert Rob- 
inson, Randall W. Rudolph, James D. Sheld- 
rake, Charles G. Shomo, C. Steven Smith, Ro- 
bert E. Toohey, William Noble Vaughn, Jr., 
Philip R. Whetzel, and Charles C. Wymer. 

A cocktail hour preceded the initiation ban- 
quet held at the local Holiday Inn. Mike Cap- 
peto served as toastmaster and opened the 
program with a brief history of the local fra-

ternity and of the colony as it progressed. Af- 
ter recognizing honored guests at the head ta- 
ble, G. Tyler Miller, president of Madison 
College, remarked briefly on the progress of 
the colony, and Henry Bowers, dean of men, 
followed with a stimulating and emotional re- 
flection on the importance of the fraternity 
life. Mr. Bowers' undergraduate days were 
spent at Wake Forest University where he 
was a Sigma Nu. 

The keynote address was given by James 
Frazier, a member of the Board of Directors 
of Sigma Phi Epsilon. His meaningful words 
and presence at the installation ceremonies 
were appreciated. 

Installation of these officers was then con- 
ducted by Larry Atkins: Charles Shomo, 
president; Richard Crist, vice president; Lee 
Kerns, controller; Jerry Green, secretary; 
Henry Fawcett, recorder; and Daniel Higdon, 

Immediately following the banquet, a 
dance-party was held at a local warehouse co- 
owned by Chapter Counselor James Wheat- 
ley, Richmond. 

The College 

Madison College was established at Harri- 
sonburg, Va., by act of the General Assembly 
on March 14, 1908. Originally established as 
a school for women, Madison began admitting 
men in 1946 and finally in 1966, the college 
was ofiicially authorized to become a co-edu- 
cational institution by the Virginia Legisla- 

During the period from 1949 to 1969, the 
campus was enlarged by 240 acres and 19 
buildings constructed. The buildings on cam- 
pus at present are part of a capital outlay ex- 
pansion plan which will provide for a future 
total enrollment of 6,500 students. Present en- 
rollment figures approach 4,100. 

The campus of over 300 acres is situated in 
the scenic and historic Shenandoah Valley of 
Virginia and affords a view of the Blue Ridge 
Mountains to the East, beyond the Massanut- 
ten Range, and the Alleghenies to the West. 
The college is about 25 miles north of Staun- 
ton, 125 miles northwest of Richmond, and 
125 miles southwest of Washington, D.C. 

Madison is a state-aided general college of 
arts and sciences operated under the supervi- 
sion of the state-appointed Board of Gover- 

There are four other social fraternities on 
campus: Tau Kappa Epsilon, Phi Alpha Pi 
(afliliated with Theta Chi), Phi Beta Kappa 
(petitioning Kappa Alpha), and Tau Sigma 
Chi (petitioning Sigma Nu). The sorori- 
ties include: Alpha Gamma Delta, Alpha 
Sigma Alpha, Alpha Sigma Tau, Kappa 
Delta, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Phi Mu, Sigma 
Kappa, and Zeta Tau Alpha. 

The Colony 

In the fall of 1962, Phi Alpha Epsilon was 
formed by six men who were seeking the 
brotherhood they could not find in the only 
other men's social fraternity at Madison. 

Six years later, in June, 1968, 12 men peti- 
tioned Sigma Phi Epsilon for colony active 
status. On November 1, 1968, 25 brothers 
pledged themselves into colony active status, 
thus completing the first step toward the ulti- 
mate goal of receiving a charter. 

During the first semester of 1968, the Sig 
Ep colony at Madison was very active. Broth-

ers of the colony held the following positions 
from the period of colonization to the 
present: presidents of Student Government, 
Men's Athletic Association, IFC, Varsity 
Club, Shorts Dorm, classes of 1971 and 1972, 
and editor of the college newspaper. Mike 
Cappeto was named Man of the Year (1970) 
and John Heerlein was the only male student 
to be selected to JFho's Who (1969-70) from 

Other activities have included 21 varsity 
lettermen, and captains of the basketball and 
soccer teams. Last year Sig Eps dominated 
the first annual Greek Week and were voted 
Fraternity of the Year for 1969. 

Housing for fraternities at Madison has 
been a problem. Since the administration does 
not recognize houses, in September, 1969, the 
colony was fortunate to obtain an old stone 
gas station about four miles north of the cam- 
pus, which the brothers converted into a Sig 
Ep lodge. 

The road to installation was a long one 
filled with disappointments. However, when 
the day finally arrived, no one was happier 
than two of the oldest members of the origi- 
nal local fraternity, Mike Cappeto and Chuck 
Shomo. These two men worked hard in build- 
ing up the colony. Mike was the out-going 
president while Chuck became the newly in- 
stalled president for next year. 

The final phase toward receiving the char- 

IN addition to Ohio Omicron (Defiance), Virginia 
Iota (Madison), and Kentucky Zeta (Morehead 
State), whose installations during April are re- 
ported in these pages, new chapters were also in- 
stalled during April at Clemson College, Virginia 
Polytechnic Institute, and Marquette University. 

South Carolina Beta (Clemson) received a char- 
ter on April 4, with past Grand President Bedford 
W. Black and National Directors William A. Mac- 
Donough and James W. Frazier ofiBciating for the 
Grand Chapter. 

The colony at Marquette University received the 
charter of Wisconsin Zeta from Grand Treasurer 
Frank W. Ruck, Jr. and National Director John 
W. Hartman on April 25. 

Also on April 25 Virginia Polytechnic Institute 
received a charter as Virginia Kappa with Brother 
MacDonough officiating. 

Virginia, the state in which the Fraternity was 
born in 1901, welcomed its Beta chapter in 1902 
when a charter was granted at the Medical College 
of Virginia. Gamma followed at Roanoke College 
in 1902, Delta at William and Mary in 1904, Epsi- 
lon at Washington and Lee in 1906, Eta at the 
University of Virginia in 1907, and Theta at Vir- 
ginia Military Institute in 1908. The Beta and 
Theta charters were withdrawn when the institu- 
tions abolished fraternities. Gamma existed for 
three years when a meager enrollment forced it to 
give up. 

The six April installations bring Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon's living undergraduate chapter total to 183. 

ter came on, of all days, Friday the 13th, 
when a delegation of 11 brothers drove to 
Headquarters in Richmond to deliver the col- 
ony's petition for chapter status. Approval 
soon followed on April 3 when the petition 
for the Virginia Iota chapter at Madison Col- 
lege was accepted unanimously. 

Madison College coeds outnumber the men.

On April 21, 1970, final approval was given 
by the National Board of Directors after a 
year and a half of hard work. The activities 
of the weekend of April 24 began with a re-

History of Kentucky Zeta 

Homecoming 1968 at Morehead State Uni- 
versity marked the beginning of Sigma Phi 
Epsilon on campus. Jim Pruitt, a pledge at 
Kentucky Alpha at the time, was visiting his 
old friends at Morehead. During the discus- 
sions he interested them in forming a frater- 
nal organization on campus. On October 23, 
1968, 20 men met at the Kentucky Cabin Inn 
to discuss the subject further. This first meet- 
ing was an informal smoker where friends 
met to discuss the Greek system at Morehead. 
Most of the men of this group had been ap- 
proached by the social clubs concerning affili- 
ation but they felt they should form an orga- 
nization with an individual set of objectives 
and goals. 

On October 26, 1968 six members of the 
group visited the University of Kentucky

chapter. What these men stood for and what 
they were making of themselves as brothers 
attracted the visitors. When they reported 
back to home base it was decided to investi- 
gate the procedure for affiliating with Sigma 
Phi Epsilon. The group took on the name 
"Group Zeta," and started recruiting other 
members. At a meeting held in the basement 
of Waterfield Hall the first officers were 
elected: Robert Durham, president; Ned 
Friece, vice-president; Michael Dingus, con- 
troller; Kirby Wright, recorder; Michael 
Franklin, secretary. Shortly thereafter Associ- 
ate Dean of Men at the University of Ken- 
tucky, Stewart Minton, alumnus of the Miami 
(Ohio) chapter, visited the campus and ad- 
dressed the group. 

In December, Staff Representative Joe Lil- 
lis addressed the administration and the men 
of Group Zeta. The petition for Colony status

was submitted and duly approved January 25, 
1969, by the National Board of Directors. 

Following recognition and approval by the 
University administration, on March 13, 1969, 
at the First Baptist Church in Morehead, led 
by Staff Representative Roger Strube and Na- 
tional Board member R. Eric Weise, the Col- 
ony was officially installed. Kentucky Alpha 
and West Virginia Gamma delegations were 
present, as was District Governor Richard R. 

An accelerated pledge program v^as con-

cers were: Dudley Hawkey, president; Dave

troller; Tom Huckleberry, recorder; Tim Le- 
nard, secretary. On May 11, 1969, at the First 
Baptist Church in Morehead, Kentucky Alpha 

brothers initiated the men as members of 
Sigma Epsilon Colony. 

That September, after a successful rush pe- 
riod, 32 pledges were taken, the largest class 
on campus. After an eight-week pledge period 
23 pledges were initiated as colony actives on 
December 17, 1969, at the First Baptist 

The University 

Morehead State University is nestled in the 
foothills of the Appalachia Mountains. It is lo- 
cated on U. S. route 60, state route 32, and 
Interstate 64. The University was founded as 
Morehead Normal School in 1922 and has ex- 
panded from a humble beginning to an enroll- 
ment of more than 7,000 students. In 1966 
Morehead State College became Morehead 
State University. Morehead State is a liberal 
arts school and offers master's programs in 
many fields and a doctorate degree in educa- 
tion. Its chief purpose has always been to train 
competent teachers. 

Recent Accomplishments 

The men of Kentucky Zeta won the Inter- 
fraternity Council Scholarship Award, placed 
first in intramural golf, first in the annual 
Sigma Sigma Sigma Songfest, and fourth in 
the Greek Week Games. Dudley Hawkey won 
the presidency of the student body; thus for 
the third straight year a Sig Ep has been 
elected to the presidency. Jack Mattney was 
elected vice-president of the Senior Class and 
Jim Pruitt IFC vice-president. 

Other fraternities on campus include: 
Sigma Gamma Sigma, Pi Kappa Alpha, 
Theta Chi Kappa, Mu Iota Kappa, Tau Kappa 
Epsilon, Pi Kappa Phi, Lambda Chi Alpha, 
Chi Phi, Delta Tau Delta, Theta Chi, and 
Sigma Pi.

IOYAL Sig Eps are continuing to show ap- 
proval of SPECTRA. Giving to the Foun- 
dation since the campaign's beginning ex- 
ceeds $280,000. In addition, members have re- 
ported an estimated half-million dollars in 
wills and bequests. 

"Seeing our brothers share a challenge is 
exciting and satisfying," said Grand Presi- 
dent J. E. Zollinger. "Sigma Phi Epsilon is 
honored by their trust and confidence. I urge 
all loyal Sig Eps to make their five-year com- 
mitments to SPECTRA now." 

"The sooner we reach our $1,000,000 goal, 
the sooner we will be able to meet urgent 
needs for scholarships, fellowships, and help 
on financing housing. I would like to see our 
goal reached ahead of schedule. We can make 
it if more brothers decide now to join the 600 
who have made their commitments. I am con- 
fident the first year of the SPECTRA cam- 
paign has been a significant step toward meet- 
ing Sig Ep's obligation to the future." 

Additional city and area SPECTRA cam- 
paigns are being planned. However, members 


interested in making a pledge or gift now 
need not wait for a brother to call. Complete

Atkins, senior Staff Representative, was appointed Chapter Services Director. Larry will be 
working with undergraduate chapters and the district system, in addition to all facets of the 
staff visitation program. 

The objective of these appointments is to build a lean and skilled management team. The 
new management team will work as a unit, learning all facets of Headquarters operation so 
that each member can pinch-hit for the other. Pinch-hitting will be important because of the 
increased travel proposed for the team during 1970-7L The new arrangement should also 
produce more in-depth management training, general instead of specialized knowledge, and 

The Executive Director is also pleased to announce that Jock 0. Anderson, Montana, and 
Barry Z. Posner, California (Santa Barbara), have joined the Fraternity's staff represen- 
tatives. This is the first time either chapter has had a member serving on the staff. Jock's 
major was Business Administration; he was vice-president of his chapter, named to the 
Kernel Club (freshman honorary), and was active in IFC. Barry's major was Political Sci- 
ence; he was president of his chapter, Sophomore Class president. Student Council repre- 
sentative, chairman of the Chancellor's Task Force, and a member of University of Califor- 
nia's Student Advisory Council. 

Another major change was the elimination of the in-house computer which was used for 
maintenance of membership records and accounting. Through use of the computer, our staff 
had developed the most sophisticated membership and accounting records of any fraternity. 
Nevertheless, the computer, like all other operations, has to be judged on its cost versus 
effectiveness. Not enough income could be generated to justify the in-house computer. The 
alternative was to reduce costs by eliminating the computer. 

Significant savings will be realized thereby at no loss in services to members or chapters. 
The immediate savings derive from reducing the computer rental cost to zero and from re- 
ducing the number of Headquarters employees by four. All services to members will continue 
to be available, as membership records will be handled by a local computer service bureau 
and accounting records will be maintained with a bookkeeping machine at Headquarters. 

The Executive Director announces with regret the resignations of Frank R. Marrs as 
Alumni Services Director, effective December 31, and of Milton C. Prettyman as staff repre- 


Momberwhip Directories By special arrangement, Sigma Phi Epsilon Headquarters 
will publish individual membership directories for all chapters except those now dormant. 
The cost of this ambitious project has been underwritten by an interested and devoted alum- 
nus, and it is expected the project will take at least six months to complete. 

When completed, this project will offer at least a partial answer to the many who have 
asked for a new Sig Ep Directory. The last directory, published in 1949, listed all members; 
today, however, a membership-wide directory would be too expensive and impractical. 

Each chapter's directory will have three sections of alphabetic listings: (1) Members with 
addresses on record. (2) Members whose addresses we do not have, and (3) Deceased mem- 
bers. The number of directories printed for each chapter will be determined by the number 
of chapter members having current addresses on record at Headquarters. All copies of the 
chapter's directory will be sent to the chapter president, who will then mail a copy to each 

Be on the lookout for your personal copy of your chapter's directory, and write the chapter 
president if you haven't received your directory by February, 1971. Use the directory to main- 
tain contact with your chapter brothers and to help locate "lost" brothers . . . keep the bond 

Death of a Chapter The Boston University chapter is no more. The unique research 
project jiroposed for this chapter (May '70 Journal) fell through when the Massachusetts 
Gamma alumni householding corporation decided to sell the house instead of letting the 
Head(juarters assume the chapter's operation and management. With the sale of the house, 
the few remaining members of the chapter disbanded. Thus Sigma Phi Epsilon has lost a 
chapter and a unique opportunity for trying to save the chapter while learning to cope with 
the problems of the urban campus chapter. 

Dividends A special lost address campaign led by Randy Marrs, Alumni Services Di- 
rector, has paid off many-fold already. Headquarters has gained good addresses for the many 
previously lost members who will profit from renewed contact with their Fraternity. 

Alumni offices of nearly 200 colleges and universities were asked to furnish addresses 
for a chapter's lost Sig Ep members. In turn, the Fraternity agreed to exchange address in- 
formation with the alumni offices. The campaign met with quick acceptance, when 119 
alumni offices responded to the call. They furnished new addresses for 2,751 members and 
reported 211 members as deceased — nearly 3.000 replies already, with more arriving daily. 

You can help eliminate "lost" members from Fraternity records by always notifying Head- 
quarters of your current address and of the address of members not now getting the Journal.

NIC has long been considered an eastern establishment, but its offices will be moved to 
Indianapolis by the first of the year. It is hoped that this will enable NIC to provide more 
contact with and better service for its members, the fraternities. 

A subsidiary organization of the NIC is the recently renamed Fraternity Executives Asso- 
ciation (formerly the College Fraternity Secretaries Association). As its name implies, FEA 
members are the chief executive officers of the NIC fraternities. They meet twice yearly to 
cooperate in improving fraternity chapters and systems of United States and Canada. The 
Executive Director is currently serving on the FEA Executive Committee.

The Star and Lamp of IT K <& includes a vig- 
orously expressed article in its Spring. 1970, 
issue entitled "The Vital Challenge of Our 
Age . . . Ecology." 

It is a plea by former national president 
Kim Jepson to IT K <{> brothers for each to do 
his part in the fight against environmental 

"Today's babies, if they can survive pollu- 
tion to their seventies, will know a world of 
15 billion." Perhaps we are already beginning 
to see the horror of death by stress. 

"We can still put our environment back on 
the proper track. We can learn how. We can 
afford it. We can't not afford it. But we can 
only do it with dedication and courage." 

Pi Kappa Phi presents cash awards to the 
two chapters doing the best job of fighting en- 
vironmental deterioration. 

The NIC Central Office will be removed from 
New York to Indianapolis "at some point late 
in 1970." according to a message circulated by 
President Tozier Brown, A X A. in June. 

Paul K. Addams, A X P. who has served as 
NIC administrative secretary for the past five 
years, has announced his retirement at the end 
of 1970. 

Sixty-five per cent of the members of college 
fraternity chapters graduated on schedule last 
year — a significantly higher rate of graduation 
than most colleges have for the general student 
body. This is the highlight of a three-year study 
of fraternity retention recently completed by 
the Commission on Fraternity Research, of 
which Prof. Paul P. Van Riper. B H, is 

Of the men who were on campus where fra- 
ternities were recognized, 33 per cent gradu- 

The study concludes that the high retention 

rates of fraternity men reflect standards, 
statements of the importance of academic 
achievement, and activities which complement 
classroom education, all of which are closely 
associated with social fraternities. The expres- 
sion of concern of chapter advisers and others 
for low-achieving chapters, field staff counsel- 
ing, the devotion of the scholarship officer, all 
testify to the importance which fraternities 
place on respectable academic achievement. 

The following items are taken from "Fraternity 
Newsfronts," a release prepared by W. A. Butler, 
Jr., Delta Upsilon, editor of News & Notes of 
the College Fraternity Secretaries Association: 

To MAKE rush simple is the recommendation 
of the 58 fraternities represented in the Col- 
lege Fraternity Secretaries Association, the 
organization of professional fraternity execu- 

The best systems of rushing are those 
which are open, without restrictive regula- 
tions; are individual and personal in ap- 
proach; are open to all without registration 
or charge; minimize interfraternity and chap- 
ter expenses; emphasize useful information; 
start at the earliest time and continue 
throughout the calendar year; and encourage 
upperclass, transfer, and graduate pledging. 

IFC STUDIES of the growth and potential of 
the fraternity system are becoming more pop- 
ular at many colleges and universities. The 
Miami (Ohio) IFC recently announced an in- 
depth project to study the fraternity system, 
its problems and future role. 

Fraternities are big business at the Univer- 
sity of Rhode Island which has one of the 
most successful cooperative purchasing pro- 
grams for chapters anywhere. 

Conservative estimates are that the Frater- 
nity Managers Association (FMA) saves an 
average of 23 per cent on food costs alone. A 
fraternity which would be spending $16,000 a 


year on food without the coop, now spends an 
average of $13,500 under the plan. FMA also 
handles fraternity billing, keeps accounts and 
books for each fraternity, pays food and ser- 
vice bills, makes mortgage payments, and pro- 
vides budgeting assistance. Operating costs 
are raised by a 6 per cent tax levied on the 
fraternity's monthly net purchases. The levy 
provides the FMA with operating capital and 
pays professional staff salaries. 

Indiana University, frequently recognized by 
the American Alumni Council as one of the 
best for alumni programs, reports that alumni 
with fraternity affiliations support the Univer- 
sity better financially than the non-fraternity 
alumni, both in terms of total amount and in 
percentage of participation. The same is true 
in their support of the University through re- 
cruitment of new students and athletes, in 
heading alumni clubs, and in supporting the 
University in nearly every phase of its opera- 

The Interfraternity Institute is a new 
kind of seminar launched at Indiana Univer- 
sity in June by the College Fraternity Secre- 
taries Association and the University. The 
week-long seminar helped selected fraternity 
advisers and staff members gain new insights 
into the challenges to fraternities in the '70s. 

Phi Kappa Theta is constructing an apart- 
ment-type fraternity building at Ohio State 
University. The structure will include a com- 
bination of one- and two-bedroom apartments 
on the first, second, and third floors, while the 
basement will include a living room, recreation 
room, study room, kitchen, and dining-room 
facilities. The cost of the building is expected 
to be from $150,000 to $175,000 with a capac- 
ity of accommodating 50 men. 

Phi Beta Kappa, which bestows the nation's 
oldest and most coveted academic honor, is 
striving to cope with two trends: an egalitarian 
spirit among students and a widespread ten- 
dency to abandon grades. A small but grow- 
ing number of the country's brightest students 
are declining membership or accepting it with 
reluctance. They feel they are being honored 
for grades and learning that have little mean- 
ing or relevance. 


Bergen Evans, B n, in a Commencement 
address: "We of the older generation have 
things to teach ourselves, too. And perhaps the 
most important is unless a man has the courage 
to maintain his principles, he might as well 
not have the principles."

ership academy of his fraternity: "As science 
is lengthening the life span, what can we do 
within the educational program of fraternities 
to deepen the meaning of life — not cheapen 
it, but to deepen it? Is not the exploration 
yet before us? All we know is what we don't 
know. No man is ever educated; he is only in 
the process of becoming educated. The task 
lies before us." 

G. Alan Sternbergh, A 2 ^, in The Toma- 
hawk: "Putting it in simple terms, let's look 
at grades as a deciding factor in the selection 
process. There are several key factors, related 
directly to academic achievement, used to 
evaluate your potential for those goals you're 
consciously or unconsciously striving for — Be 
aware of them. Realize that, as the 'economic 
pendulum' of our country swings back and 
forth, affecting supply and demand, the tighter 
the 'market place' becomes for manpower, the 
greater the emphasis is placed on those who 
have the best record of performance in college 
— and, one of the key factors that rises to the 
top, particularly in this type of situation, is the 
academic record." 

Joseph Wood Krutch in Phi Delta Kappan: 
"The printed page is the most important means 
of communication ever invented and any stu- 
dent who does not learn how to take full ad- 
vantage of it has failed to learn the most im- 
portant thing schooling can teach. Teaching 
machines and audio-visual aids have their 
place, but they are impediments to continuing 
education if they diminish the student's abil- 
ity to give proper attention to the printed word. 
Unless he has 'learned to read' in the fullest 
sense of the phrase he will never be more than 
half educated."

University of Washington alumni in the Seat- 
tle area continue to meet monthly in the cen- 
trally located Olympic Hotel, and in addition 
meet in outer areas at other times and for get-to- 
gethers other than luncheons, plans for which will 
be announced. 

William and Mary Sig Eps have established 
their first alumni board since returning to the 
campus in 1960. Grand President John E. Zol- 
linger, '27, called a meeting of alumni still in the 
immediate area and then through the Headquar- 
ters rounded up a willing crew of Sig Eps from 
other chapters now in the Williamsburg area who 
met twice before the close of the spring semester. 

The members of the newly formed board are: 
president, Ralph James, Hampton; vice-president, 
George Neill, Langley Air Force Base; controller, 
Thomas Ferrat, Norfolk; secretary. Jack Wilkins,

The District 5a Association is an organiza- 
tion composed of the five district chapters — in 
North Carolina State, Duke, North Carolina, At- 
lantic Christian, and East Carolina — and is de- 
signed to establish a closer relationship among 
the chapters and promote interchapter activity 
and brotherhood. 

The Association got its start in the fall when

with the various chapter presidents to discuss the 
concept of a district organization. From there, Mr. 
CJoyd, Gray Hutchison, then president of Delta, 
and Johnny Swinson, then president of Beta and 
now president of the Association, carefully read 
the constitution of the District 30 Association and 
adapted it to relate to District 5a needs.

District Association held its first function in the 
form of a Winter Sports Day in February. The 
event was held at Atlantic Christian with competi- 
tion in basketball, volleyball, table tennis, and 
bowling. Beta chapter won the Governor's Travel- 
ing Trophy for winning the over-all meet, having 
won volleyball, table tennis, and bowling. Atlantic 
Christian won the basketball competition. The 
awards were presented at a banquet which fol- 
lowed the meet. 

The Constitution was ratified and the Associa- 
tion officially begun at a Leadership Conference 
held at the Betsy Jeff Penn 4-H Camp in Reids- 
ville in March following the annual elections at 
each chapter. At this conference the new officers 
and some of the old officers of the various chap- 
ters got together for a weekend to discuss several 
aspects of Sig Ep life. There were group discus- 
sions on Alumni Relations, Rush, Finances, and 
Pledge Education. Larry Atkins, National Staff 
Representative, led the discussions on Alumni Re- 
lations and Finances. On Saturday night. Dr. Jack 
J. Early, president of Pfeiffer College, National 
Ritual Chairman of Sigma Phi Epsilon, gave a 
talk on the Ritual as it applies to today's society. 

Plans are now underway to revive the Sig Ep 
Ball, to be held the night of the Winter Sports 
Day. The Association is also having bumper stick- 
ers reading "Go Greek; Go Sig Ep" printed for 
each member in the District. — Phil Rast

Henderson State Sig Eps held a discussion 
with Henderson's new president on the relevance 
of the fraternity system and on the changing 
events on campus. Participants agreed that the 
fraternities need to change emphasis in regards to 
campus activities. They must take a more active 
interest in campus and community life. Also dis- 
cussed were new ideas of how they could better 
the social life on campus. 

Marshall Sig Eps held a retreat the weekend 
of April 14-15 during which two objectives were 
accomplished: (1) A feeling of unity among 
pledges and members was developed, and (2) the 
will to excel (work a bit harder for SPE) was 
instilled. The following weekend the chapter took 
the championship trophy in the Greek Games con- 
tests. Pi Kappa Alpha had won this trophy for 18 
years straight. Sig Ep stopped the streak.

Sig Eps at Kansas held their first "soul bowl" 
February 28 by hosting Kappa Alpha Psi, the 
black fraternity, to a volleyball game. Teams were 
picked and action flowed as spectators from both 
fraternities exchanged greetings and conversation. 
Afterwards the Sig Eps treated their guests to a 
dinner. More such plans are hopefully in store for 
the future so that better understanding will result.

Sacramento State brothers marched for 
multiple sclerosis on May 24. Rather than partici- 
pate in the fun and games of Greek Week, the 
chapter felt that it would be more meaningful to 
participate in a service project for the community. 
The brothers collected over |220 in six hours. 
They also participated in a march for peace spon- 
sored by the Alternative Education Committee of 
the College. The committee was formed after the 

recent disturbances in Ohio, Georgia, and Missis- 
sippi. The brothers went door to door in the Sac- 
ramento area explaining their views on the war in 
Southeast Asia. 

Tennessee Sig Eps sponsored a baseball team 
for underprivileged boys. Ray Whitley was coach. 

Tennessee Wesleyan Sig Eps collected more 
than $200 for Muscular Dystrophy in May.

■ In no way is the Fraternity with a Heart more 
representative of its symbol than in its support 
of the Camp Fund, which since its establishment 
as a national charitable project in 1950 has con- 
tributed more than $86,000 to summer camps for 
underprivileged boys throughout the U.S. 

Following the 1969 camping experience, thank- 
you messages from grateful young campers in- 
cluded these: 

"I thank you a lot for paying my way to camp. 
The best of all was making new friends." 

"Most fun I had all summer was at camp. 
There's so much country out here it gives you a 
sense of freedom." 

"This camp has been the best thing that has ever 
happened in my life." 

Bradford Simpkins 

Davis and Elkins 

92,000th Sig Ep 

■ Bradford Leigh Simpkins, 20-year-old Davis 
and Elkins junior major in biology, was initi- 
ated as the 92,000th Sig Ep on May 3. He was 
initiated with West Virginia Delta's spring pledge 
class and his chapter number is 418. 

Brad was born on a farm near Florence, N.J., 
spent 19 years of his life there, and intends to 
return to agricultural work after he receives his 
degree. The present family home is at Vincentown, 

■ "Bridging What Communication Gaps?" is 
the title of a paper that provoked unusual in- 
terest at the college fraternity editors and secre- 
taries workshops at Philadelphia in July. 

The speaker asserted that there are behavioral 
scientists in our colleges and universities who, 
merely for the asking, will teach the fraternities 
to communicate what they should be communicat- 
ing about the deep human values of fraternity. 

One timely case in point is offered in the new 
book, Men in Groups, by Prof. Lionel Tiger, Rut- 
gers University anthropologist and biologist. In 
this book and in an article in the magazine Impact, 
Professor Tiger explains "male bonds and female 
exclusion." He writes in part: 

"If males bond because it is 'in the nature of the 
beast* to do so, then this places a considerable 
burden both on women seeking to join these bonds, 
and on those men willing to allow females into 
groups when this may signally affect the groups 
and the relations between group members. 

"One intriguing example of this phenomenon is 
the secret society; only exceptionally are these 
heterosexual. They are mostly all-male and when 
women do join them, this appears to mark the end 
of the society's particular drama and effect on its 

This quotation was presented back to back with 
another which supports the evidence that when 
the coeducational chapter comes into being, 
brotherhood goes into limbo. 

A second case in point is offered in an article 
in The Phi Delta Kappan, by the Princeton Uni- 
versity anthropologist. Dr. Ashley Montagu. This 
is entitled "A Scientist Looks at LOVE." He 

"Scientists are discovering at this very moment 
that to live as if to live and love were one is the 
only way of life for human beings, because, indeed, 
this is the way of life which the innate nature of 
man demands. We are discovering that the highest 
ideals of man spring from man's own nature, that 
what is right for man is what is right for his na- 
ture, and that the highest of these innately based 
ideals is the one that must enliven and inform all 
his other ideals, namely, love. This is not a new 
discovery in the world, of course; what is new is 
that scientists have rediscovered these truths by 
scientific means. Contemporary scientists working 
in this field are giving a scientific foundation or 
validation to the Sermon on the Mount and to the 
Golden Rule: to do unto others as you would have

them do unto you, to love your neighbor as your- 

The Ritual teaches the good fraternity member 
how to become an expert in this whole area — but 
he becomes an inarticulate expert. The works of 
the behavioral scientists that provide instruction in 
love (and this leads at length to the topic of build- 
ing and maintaining a respectable library in the 
chapter and using it) will teach the good fraternity 
member how to become an articulate expert in this 
increasingly important field of learning. 

■ Vermont Sig Eps will compete no more in Kake 
Walk, the University's most cherished tradi- 
tion, which was launched 1898 as a four-day week- 
end in mid-February. The oldest winter carnival in 
America, it formed the central event for a tre- 
mendous campus observance attended by hundreds 
of alumni and friends as well as undergraduates. 
"Walkin* fo' de kake" was an offshoot of the Negro 
minstrel show. 

In late September, 1969, a group of black stu- 
dents, with NAACP backing, supported by a group 
of sympathetic whites, began to campaign for the 
abolishment of Kake Walk. They were successful. 

During the last two years, Sig Eps swept every 
category of awards in Kake Walk. In 1968 and 
again in 1969 they won the Lechnyr Trophy which 
is awarded to the team having the most outstanding 
over-all spirit. 

The demise of Kake Walk at Vermont saddened 
the entire campus. 

■ The nature of campus-wide traditions such as 
Vermont's Kake Walk, recently interred, and 

Indiana's Little 500, more alive than ever, sug- 
gests the paraphrase of a line by the poet Robert 
Frost — "Education should begin in delight and 
continue on into wisdom." 

Perhaps the psychologists will soon tell us that 
play and learning — or learning and play — once 
considered opposites, should be staunch allies. 

We are sure that the more thoughtful young 
men in our fraternity chapter houses have already 
discovered for themselves a profound truth re- 
vealed by Prof. Philip H. Phenix of Columbia 
Teachers College. In an article in Educational 
Forum, he asserts: "When the play spirit dies, the 
freshness, joy, and spontaneity of life are 
quenched, and routine, compulsion, and mecha- 
nization supervene." 

Insisting that play is an essential element in 
good education. Professor Phenix states: "Far 
from being incidental to the curriculum — a 'fad 
and frill' introduced by softminded educational- 
ists — play may turn out to be the most important 
feature of the curriculum." 

It would be very interesting to have the reaction 
of thoughtful readers to the overwhelming empha- 
sis on play disclosed by Steve Downs in his story 
in this issue, "Indiana Sig Eps Win Little 500." We 
think it's great. 

Let's get some controversy going. Maybe this 
little old magazine has been getting too dull.
