who feels that a good fraternity system is an
indispensable feature of the well-balanced
American college campus.

The U-T IFC was recently named the top
group in the Southeastern IFC Conference.

judges included the proposed Fraternity Park,
which will give at least 13 fraternities beauti-

a new computer system of rush; the special
association and guide for housemothers; a

The idea for the "How to Study" clinic
for fraternity pledges which Bonitati brought
with him from Arizona State has improved
scholarship. Bonitati himself taught the three
sessions with 600-650 pledges attending.

The Housemothers' Association for moms
of the fraternity system was initiated by the
IFC and a new handbook, Half-a-Hundred
Sons or More, prepared to aid housemothers
and provide them with a guideline for their
jobs. Among other projects started:

The trustees of the Foundation believe that brotherhood
builds the type of men America needs for the future.
With the Foundation, Sigma Phi Epsilon gains added
strength . . . guiding its members in their personal develop-
ment and helping them to meet their educational goals.
To help worthy members of Sigma Phi Epsilon achieve
their potential, scholarships granted by the Foundation
are for undergraduate or graduate study — in the United
States, or in accredited institutions throughout the world.
The life most of us knew as undergraduates has changed
with changing times. Educational costs have skyrocketed.
Part-time work is more difficult because of the demand-
ing character of curricula. Graduate work is required in
many more fields — from business to engineering. We
have the privilege of assuring that no deserving Sig Ep is
deprived of real achievement for lack of means to com-
plete his undergraduate studies or graduate work.
Here is the opportunity for every alumnus member of
Sigma Phi Epsilon to show what the Fraternity has meant
to him by making an investment in the potential of out-
standing members. Help Sig Ep move ahead by under-
writing opportunities for achievement and leadership !

NOVEMBER 1, 1901

Every November 1, thousands of Sig Eps work
for the progress of the Fraternity, by pausing in
ceremony to look at the past, and by gathering
light and inspiration therefrom help build for the

The tradition known as the Founders Day din-
ner is a respected ceremony of great importance
to the Fraternity. In many cities throughout the
country, and on many campuses, undergraduates
meet with alumni to observe the founding of
Sigma Phi Epsilon by twelve students of Rich-
mond College.

At Gainesville, Fla., members of the fraternity
in that area gather and are honored to hear the
Rev. Thomas V. McCaul, one of three of the
twelve who still survive.

Members of the Puget Sound Alumni Chapter
met for the Founders Day Dinner at the Olympic
Hotel, Seattle, on November 8. Chief speaker was
former Grand President Frank H. Hamack,
George Washington, '16, a retired member of the
faculty at the University of Washington, Hamack
has three sons, all Washington Beta alumni —
Frank Jr., '40, Richard L., '45, and Robert A.,

The revered chapter counselor provides an apt
keynote: "What is Fraternity? What does it ac-
complish? Why do I believe it is to a young
man's benefit to join a fraternity? Fraternity to
me is Brotherhood, one if the most impelling ob-
jectives of man. Fraternity is founded upon
liberty. Being a melting pot of men of various
faiths, desires and objectives, it must of its very
nature be founded on the equality of all men
who become members, for without it fraternity's
foundations would be unsound. And the word
Fraternity blends all its objectives, desires, and
attainments into what we know as Brotherhood.
Fraternity means to strive for the betterment of
our members, and to live and act in the manner
of men of stability, courage and faith."

Founders Day will be celebrated by the alumni
and undergraduate brothers of Southeast Mis-
souri State at Cape Girardeau the weekend of
November 6-7. This weekend also is Homecoming
weekend when old memories of brotherhood will
be recalled and friendships renewed.

Twenty alumni and eight undergraduate mem-
bers attended a luncheon meeting of New York
area alumni in New York in the Executive Suite
of the Biltmore on August 31. Ray McCron was

The luncheon gave many alumni who can't
make it to board meetings a chance to get to-
gether, to get a rundown on what's going on in
Philadelphia, and to contribute their own ideas
and suggestions. The date was picked to coincide
with the Grand Chapter/Academy, which several
actives and alumni were attending.

Chapter President Dick Fuke gave a brief run-
down of the state of the chapter, and Connie
Eberstein, '65, went over the future plans of the
University in reference to the role of fraternities.

Dave Ffrench, '51, and Secretary Jerry Jerrehian,
'55, discussed Foundation finances and outlined

discussion of house relocation followed.

quoine, '14, Dick Littleton, '15, George Scanlon,
'20, Harry McClure, '24, Carl Dolmetsch, '25,

In order to put Sig Eps in touch with each other,
interested brothers from Dayton are asked to
write Herb Pence, Jr., 2628 Briarclifle Ave., Cin-
cinnati, Ohio 45212. Their names will be given to
the nucleus group at Dayton.

A number of Milwaukee area Sig Eps and
others from a distance met at the Wauwatosa

Those present included Irwin R. Witthuhn,
Hans Feldmann, Lee Rasey, and Earl Watson, all

ident of the Fraternity; and Dr. Irwin Schulz,

At Bloomington, Ind., on Homecoming Day,
Dr. Maurice M. Felger, a charter member of the
Indiana University chapter and member of the
alumni board for more than 20 years, was given
the Distinguished Alumni Award, the highest
honor the chapter can bestow.

The newly created award was presented at the
annual meeting of the alumni by George Grigsby,
board vice-president.

Dr. Felger has a Sig Ep son, Tom, who is a
student in the University medical school.

dent, Stan Poshard; vice-president, Jim Ringo;

ter house before the Homecoming game between
Bradley and Northern Illinois on October 16.

Members of the Kansas City Alumni Chapter
met on September 14, at the Western Hills Motel,
Shawnee-Mission, Kan. A representative group of
Greater Kansas City alumni from chapters in
Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, and Illinois turned out
for dinner, fellowship, and discussion.

Those attending included District Governor
Jean T. Fisher and Past Grand President Earle
W. Frost.

Fisher gave a report of Conclave activities in
New York. Other discussion centered around
plans to have representatives from the chapters
and alumni boards in the area present at the No-
vember meeting to check on the condition of the
chapters and find out what help can be given
them by the Kansas City Chapter.

It was also decided that early plans will be
made for another annual gala meeting in the
spring, during the N.A.I.A. basketball tourna-
ment in Kansas City at which the Liston-Nai-
smith awards will be presented.
