I APO Devotes 7,000 Hours to Campus and Community Alpha Phi Omega — a true service fraternity of highly dedicated college men whose never ending aims on campus or in society are to develop and express leadership, friendship and service: the Cardinal Principles of the fraternity. Alpha Phi Omega came to the Tech campus in the form of Beta Sigma chapter in 1939, and now has more than 400 chartered chap- ters and over 100,000 affiliated men since being founded by Frank Reed Horton and joined by brothers of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity at Lafayette College, Easton, Pennsyl- vania in 1925. Horton wanted a fraternity which could give college men a standard of manhood, a code of strength- building ideals, and give them an opportunity for leadership and ex- perience and service to others. Through Alpha Phi Omega college men are able to serve the campus, community, and nation through vari- ous service functions and activities. The service fraternity has secured the endorsement of the Boy Scouts of America, and places Scout member- ship as the only prerequisite to fra- ternity membership other than indi- vidual chapter requirements. Many notable men have been mem- bers of the fraternity — Tech Presi- dent Grover E. Murray, Dean of Men Lewis N. Jones, Dean of Stu- dent Life James G. Allen, Sen. Mark O. Hatfield of Oregon, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, Lt. Gen. George Hershey, and numerous others. These men, as all the rest, have found that a full and complete happiness with life can not be attained without a truly honest and humble desire to serve others. It is with this dedication and de- sire that Alpha Phi Omega has be- come a reality — a successful reality — which has greatly benefited and im- proved the Tech campus. The 95 members of the Tech Beta Sigma chapter have devoted more than 7,000 man hours from their studies and personal activities in the past two semesters to fulfill the aims and goals of the fraternity. In the past semesters, the chapter has placed permanent benches around the campus proper for the comfort of the students. The cfock and the large Texas map for car rides in the union were secured by the chapter. The night lights on the intramural playing fields, the double T at the north end of Jones Stadium, half the cost of the Southwest Conference Circle, and the student locater cards are all a product of the chapter. The chapter maintains a lost and found booth in the Tech Union. Each week night members visit the infirmary and attend to the wants of the ill students. Realizing full well the hardships encountered by blind students, a tape library of textbooks is being prepared by the chapter as an invaluable aid to the increasing number of blind Tech students, as is a large three dimensional map of the campus to familiarize these students with distances and locations of cam- pus buildings. The chapter has a scout troop for mentally and physically disabled Lub- bock boys and twice a year the chapter improves and cleans the Scout camp at Post, Texas. Each football season the chapter provides students with football pro- grams, the Homecoming parade, and the night display of luminaries that outline the campus at Homecoming and Christmas. Providing entering freshman and transfer students with Tech informa- tion and orientation, placing parking stickers on cars, helping with regis- tration, and conducting student and faculty voting during elections also entails many hours of work by the chapter. The members of Beta Sigma have placed in trust $10,000 to provide a scholarship to deserving Tech stu- dents and the chapter has contributed $1,500 for a leadership seminar to se- cure expert consultants to train and advise Tech organization leaders and promote better faculty-student rela- tions. To obtain the funds to furnish these projects and services, the chap- ter collects and sells coathangers gathered from the women ' s dorms at the close of each spring semester. The chapter also sponsors the annual Beauty and the Beast Dance, football A Phi O David Lewis spends his time watching the ballot box during student elections. Helping a student at the Alpha Phi Omega spon- sored lost and found is Gerry Kelly. program sales and the parking sticker project to gain finances. The chapter does not stop with this listing of projects. Each week new ideas develop — so many in fact that some need to be set aside until the next semester — but the chapter and the fraternity stand ready and eager to grab at any idea, worthy project or cause and promote these functions to the utmost of its ability. i Playboy — 33
