The entire group poses for a picfure at the installation banquet. Fifty-four years, to the day, after Epsilon Chapter was first chartered at Centenary College, Louisiana, the charter of the chapter was revived by the Supreme Executive Committee of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. And on October 27, 1939, five officers of Gamma Chap- ter at Louisiana State University — a chapter that had been estab- lished by old Epsilon in 1887 — initiated the charter members of the revived chapter, ably assisted by Worthy Grand Treasurer George R. Rea and District Grand Master George Reymond. That evening, the Kappa Sigmas with their wives and dates, gathered around a huge banquet table in the Washington-Youree Hotel, where President Pierce Cline and Dean John A. Hardin delivered ad- dresses warmly welcom- ing Kappa Sigma to the campus. The group ad- journed from the banquet hall to the Sky Line Roof, where a formal dance was held, attended by repre- sentatives of chapters in Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas and many invited guests.

PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL Pan-Hellenic kept the upper hand in all sorority conflicts again this year, but it had a hard time doing it, for rushing careened on in its customary hectic way, which adds so much joy to the lives of rushees and so much grief to those of the Greeks. A saner and more sensible season was the motto adopted by this group, and accordingly, they eliminated summer rushing of any sort, allowing only two brief periods in the spring and fall for the organized groups to get in their dirty work. These and other rules were explained to the rushees at the Pan-Hellenic teas — one given in the early spring and one in the fall. An innovation for the group this year was the collection of a Pan-Hellenic fee from each pledge, with which collective wealth the group threw one of the super special affairs of the season — the highly successful Homecoming Dance. Pan-Hellenic apparently has nothing to. worry its pretty head about. Officers President . . Marguerite Lockhart Vice-President .... Grace Julian Secretary-Treasurer .

Whether this shall prove to be a wise decision or a colossal blunder remains to be seen, but at least the Council is trying. All of which shows that this group of representatives of each sorority, under the leadership of Marguerite Lockhart, is doing its bit towards the establishment of a successful plan by which Greek may meet Greek and not engage in mortal conflict, but may pursue their affairs in a more friendly and mutually helpful spirit.

w w E-h On K O S After the pomp and ceremony of their installa- tion as one of Centenary ' s newest, and still oldest, fraternity chapters had died away, the Kappa Sigmas settled down to hard work and lots of it to maintain their rightful place on the campus. It is a difficult task for any chapter to begin life again after a lapse of thirty-five years, particularly one which must uphold the traditions and standards of such a time honor- ed organization as Kappa Sigma. The fratern- ity traces its history back to the founding at the University of Virginia in 1869, but the spirit embodied in the ritual dates back to European traditions of the University of Bologna in the year 1400, where a society of students was founded and spread throughout the continent to make connections with one of the early members of Kappa Sigma who was visiting in Europe. The local chapter, though occupied with in- stallation and transition from a local to a na- tional body, has found time to pledge thirty- nine picked men, the largest group pledged by any fraternity on the campus, and numbering men in all phases of student activities includ- ing Student Senate, Maroon Shirts, the School Band, Conglomerate, Yoncopin and inter-mural sports. Many have received honors by election to honorary positions, including student ap- pointments, honorary fraternities, and Who ' s Who in American Colleges. o hJ m ' M i £ : Numbered among the prominent local alumni of the fraternity are the two federal district judges, Gaston L. Porterie and Ben Dawkins; one judge on the state appellate court, Harmon Drew; City Attorney Joe Jackson, and many others such as James E. Smitherman, Joe Barks- dale, Wilbur V. Lunn, and Melvin Johnson, at- torneys; Dr. C. P. Rutledge, Tom Tanner, Dick Hale, Marlin Drake, Douglas Chew, and Elmo Lee. CO a. w National officers and the local ' s vice-president pose . . .
