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

Swing and sway, (he K. A. way. What could the conversation topic be??? Officers President Roland Achee Vice-President Robert Eatman Secretary James Lee West, Jr. Treasurer Horace Alvord Although somewhat handicapped by the loss of members to the armed forces, the Alpha Iota chapter of Kappa Alpha came through its fifty-third year with banners flying. Under the efficient leadership of Presi- dent Roland Achee, the fraternity was able to maintain the same high degree of achievement as the Kappa Alphas of former years. Of this year ' s " boys across the street " thirty-eight are now serving with the armed forces. To the army went B. J. Bennett, M. Christians, E. W. Harris, J. Haygood, W. Hawkins, P. Madden, R. Mitchell, R. Pugh, J. Robbins, C. J. Stamper, J. Stephens, B. Sullivan, J. Walters, E. Woodley, J. Youngblood, S. Lunn, H. Marks, and C. Jones. Helping to keep the sea lanes open are R. Achee, T. Bush, J. Comegys, R. Eatman, W. Fulton, T. Giddens, S. Grayson, R. Henderson, D. Little, J. Madden, J. Turner, R. J. Abney, R. Jarrott, R. Sulli- van, and W. Bowden. K. Medlock and R. Walker represent the chapter in the marine corps. Again this year the Kappa Alphas received an impressive number of individual honors. Roland Achee was chosen president of the student body and of Alpha Chi and was the editor of the Conglomerate and emcee of Kollege Kapers. Bob Eatman served as vice-president of the student body and James Lee West as treasurer. Vice-president of Alpha Sigma Pi was A. L. Wedgeworth. Browning Morris was president of the Pre-Law Club and the Commerce Club. Stuart Lunn and Glen Graves served the Pre-Law Club as vice-president and treasurer. In the junior class election Horace Alvord and James Lee West were elected president and treasurer. A. L. Wedgeworth and Furman Eubanks received the offices of president and treasurer in the sophomore class and Roy Joe Abney and Bob Corser achieved the same among the frosh. In November of 1943 the K. A. ' s once again successfully defended the interfraternity football championship held by Alpha Iota for ten successive years. This past year a precedent was established when admission was charged for the game. The entire receipts which were $80.00 went to the Community Chest. The record for 1943 and 1944 is one of which all Kappa Alphas are proud. Neither the drastic changes wrought by World War II nor the increasing competition among social fraternities was able to dim the glory of old K. A. ALPHA IOTA CHAPTER
