Kinsmen also participated in a project to help prove that sometimes getting involved with plastic money can pay. The club was paid to distribute credit card applications for Dillard's Department Stores. Another group project the men par- ticipated in was the American Heart Association's Jump-Rope-A-Thon in March. They were able to raise about S300 for the association. Kinsmen participated in other projects to aid Abilene residents. Twice they sang at nursing homes - once with their dates for the Christmas social and another time with the women of Ko Jo Kai social club. Also, members of Kinsmen and GATA took a group from the Abilene Boys Ranch to a Wildcat basketball game in Moody Coliseum. In the fall semester Kinsmen received the second place award for Homecoming projects. The club project, run by Kinsmen dressed as South Seas pirates, allowed con- testants to try to scale a rope that ran from the ground to the ship's makeshift crow's next. In the nest was a S5 bill, incentive for those attempting the climb. One of the highlights of the spring semester was the spring social, conducted in April on the San Antonio River. A tradition unique to Kinsmen, the kilt party, occurred more often than usual this year, Taylor said. All club members who became engaged were honored, or dishonored, with a kilt party. The engaged member was first stripped of all pride - not to mention most clothing - by fellow Kinsmen members. He was then thrown into the GATA fountain and given a kilt, with which to clad himself. The kilted member was then dropped off on Washington Boulevard and had to run back to Gardner Dormitory, where his clothing awaited him in the arms of his fiancee. She was the light he saw at the end of a human tunnel, through which he had to run and come out of with his kilt still intact. But this, said Kevin Wasner, senior member of Kinsmen from Abilene, as well as all other Kinsmen activities, was done with the club motto in mind - "In Chris- tian Brotherhood." "After all," said Taylor, "that's what we're all about." Kinsmen 295
