RED DOOR NOTES

Arkansas State Sig Eps redecorated their fra-

ture, gold carpet, and gold draperies accentuating
a new color television set. The main door to the

door knocker and the Greek letters in gold.

At Ball State, house remodeling and paneling
were done in many of the rooms and restrooms
under the supervision of industrial arts major

com from the Mothers' Club. The alumni bought
new lamps for the main lounge and the recrea-

ners. It was paid for entirely through donations
from parents.

At Connecticut, Sig Eps have added a new
$2,500 lounge. The theme is early American, com-
plete wih wooden beams and lantern lamps. Sev-
eral brothers returned early to panel walls and
arrange the new furnishings. Also, a TV room
has been built in the basement making use of
some of the old lounge furniture. The remaining
furniture was sold at an auction held behind the
chapter house.

Dartmouth Sig Eps have their living room
completely remodeled, a new staircase installed,
and a new kitchen completed on the first floor.

East Carolina Sig Eps, working side by side
with the alumni board, have secured two houses.
One is used to house members and the other
pledges. The houses are located directly in front
of the main portion of the campus; one at 505
East Fifth Street and the other just behind at
406 Summit Street.

The houses were dedicated to the late Larry
HoUaman. His mother accepted a set of keys and
a President's Gavel. Brother Hollaman was presi-
dent at the time of his death.

Bauman, and Tom Neidermeier directed the lay-
ing of a new tile floor in the kitchen. Alumni do-
nated four new chairs for the chapter room.

pledge class project. For their campus project the
pledges painted the game room of the Student
Union Building.

Idaho State Sig Eps installed a patio in the
back yard and carpeted the upstairs hallway.

Indiana Sig Eps await completion of a $280,000
addition to their house at 815 North Jordan. The
addition will house study rooms, a formal living
room, fraternity den, kitchen and dining facili-
ties, and housemother quarters. The entire house
will accommodate 84 men. When the old house
was remodeled a distinguished alumni room was
included.

Massachusells Sig Eps are spending their sec-
ond semester in a new house which was completed
last February. One section of the house had been
built in 1960 and now the entire structure is done
and is said to be the most impressive on campus.
The worth of the house is approximately
$250,000, and its existence is an example of ex-
cellent alumni participation in fraternity affairs.

the present chapter house in the middle of a
block-long physical plant. Another building,
formerly occupied by another fraternity, has been
rented to meet the housing demands of a growing
chapter while the new house is completed. Com-
pletion is expected during spring or summer.
