Under the star and crescent. Serving the country and also Kappa Sig. Officers President Harrell Larry Vice-President David Freeman Secretary-Treasurer Jack Reeks The Kappa Sigma fraternity was founded December 10, 1869, at the University of Virginia by William G. McCormick, John C. Boyd, Edmund L. Rogers, Frank C. Nicodemus, and George M. Arnold. Of the initiates at Virginia during the session of 1872-73, the most important in the later history of the fraternity was Stephen A. Jackson, who embodied in the Kappa Sigma ritual the European tradition, which takes the fraternity back in spirit to the University of Bologna in the year 1400 and the founding there of a society of students for mutual protection against the governor of the city, Balthasar Cassa. The society spread to other European universities, and its traditions descended through many of the noble families of the continent to make connection with one of the early members of the Kappa Sigma fraternity who was visiting in Europe. Although Kappa Sigma now has 112 active chapters in over half of the prominent colleges and universities of the United States and Canada, Epsilon Chapter, fifth in the Greek alphabet, was established as Cen- tenary ' s first fraternity on the old campus at Jackson, Louisiana, on August 29, 1885. The charter was sur- rendered in 1904. So outstanding, however, was this chapter that for 54 years the executive committee of the fraternity refused to grant the name of Epsilon to any other institution with the hope that some day Cen- tenary would reach a point in its expansion that would justify the re-installation of this chapter. This oc- curred on the anniversary of its first installation, August 29, 1939, when Sigma Phi fraternity on the campus was granted a charter reviving the Epsilon chapter of Kappa Sigma. Epsilon has been seriously handicapped this year by the loss of members to the armed forces and by the loss of its house, which during the present housing conditions was irreplacable. In spite of the handicaps, Kappa Sigma, starting the year with only three members, succeeded in pledging 19 men with more at the mid-semester. Of these there are only 12 boys left. However, Epsilon is looking forward to a great future after its duty to its country is fulfilled. EPSILON CHAPTER
