;• SIGMA DELTA CHI Journalistic Talent " Talent, Truth, Energy " is the watchword of Sigma Delta Chi, the professional journalistic society for men. Founded at DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana, it is the oldest, largest, and most select organization dedicated to the highest ideals in the field of journalism. Established at Tech in 1958, it is open to male journalism majors or minors maintaining high grade-point average and a desire to further jour- nalism as a profession. A Sigma Delta Chi must be at least junior standing. " Energy " is needed for their many and varied projects. This year was begun with the annual J-Day ac- tivities. Sigma Delta Chi hosted a seminar for the area high school stu- dents explaining the nature of student publications and the importance of journalistic training. The moment of " Truth " came in the judgment of the annual Miss Made- moiselle and Playmate Beauty Pag- eant in March. Sponsored by Sigma Delta Chi and La Ventana, the con- test resulted in the crowning of Dev- orah Russell, Ft. Worth junior, as Miss Mademoiselle and Rhonda Lewis, Plainview freshman, as Miss Playmate. Both girls are honored in the La Ventana. This year over 255 girls entered the contest held in Municipal Auditorium. The proceeds went to a scholarship fund which awards two $150 aids per semester to male jour- nalism majors. Each year in conjunction with the University Daily, Sigma Delta Chi prepares a special newspaper issue filled with feature stories honoring outstanding people. The purpose of the spring paper is to salute those students, faculty, or staff who have served Tech beyond the call of duty. In the area of " Talent " , Sigma Delta Chis has " it " and encourages " it " through a special journalism program. TThey mailed about 150 let- ters to high schools in a 100 mile radius of Lubbock offering to send a member to speak on Texas Tech, Sig- ma Delta Chi, and a career in jour- nalism. In November, four fraternity members journeyed to Minneapolis, Minnesota to attend the National Sig- ma Delta Chi convention which was a journalism workshop. Members of the fraternity met socially for the annual Student Publi- cations Banquet in the Spring. Officers for the 1967-68 year were; Bill Moore, president; Frank O ' Hagan, vice-president; Lee Mabrito, secretary; Gary Tillory, treasurer. Serv- ing in the sprin g were: Rodney Kemp, secretary, and Ronnie Lott, treasurer. Supervising the activities of Sigma Delta Chi was Ralph Sellmeyer of the Department of Journalism.

PUBLICATIONS High Standards Set The Publications Committee was responsible for several changes this year. It revamped the La Ventana of- fice, the make-up of the yearbook and its staff and gave a new look to the University Daily. Members of the committee have the duties of selecting editors, con- trolling the budget and determining the philosophy to which the University Daily and La Ventana subscribe. The committee has the general supervision over all student publications. It sees that high standards are maintained and has the power to remove editors from office. The 1967-68 committee had six faculty members, four student mem- bers, and two non-voting members. Addition of the non-voting members is the most significant change in the make-up of the committee. Members of the committee are : Dr. C. L. Allen, professor of journalism; Bill Dean, director of student publica- tions. Dr. E. A. Gillis, chairman of English department; Rae L. Harris, as- sistant professor of geo-science; Dr. Bill C. Lockhart, chairman of art; Dr. Reginald Rushing, chairman of ac- counting; Dr. L. K. Evans, professor of elementary education ; and Jean Fin- ley, secretary. Students serving on the commit- tee were: Dave Hancock, senior; John Hutt, junior; Brian lemons, junior; and Lorrie Woods, senior. Serving on the Publications Committee are: back row Dr. C. L. Allen, Brian Lemons, Rae L. Harris. Front Dr. L K. Evans, Lorrie Woods. INFORMATION SERVICES Tech and the World Texas Tech ' s Department of Pub- lic information became the Division of Information Services this year. In an outline of informative duties of the division. President Grover E. Bill Dean, Dr. E. A. Gillis, Dr. Bill Lockhart, row: Dave Hancock, John Hutt, Jean Finley, Murray said, " The purpose is to bet- ter tell Texas Tech ' s story through pro- fessional artists and writers. " Ron Hamm, director for two years, has the continuous task of in- forming the world about a constantly progressing Tech. Hamm is assisted by news, publications and photographic bureaus. The division is composed of fifteen persons who write, publish and distribute news stories daily to stu- dents, faculty and other interested per- sons on a national and international basis. John Petty continued as assistant director; Dawson Oppenheimer, in charge of news release; Jerry Kelly, as publications manager; Judy Luker, as secretary; and Ellis Finch directed the photographic bureau as head pho- tographer. A story about a Tech co-ed work- ing her way through school by raising and selling quarter horses was printed in an international publication. As a result, the co-ed was offered an ap- pearance on a Japanese television sta- tion. This incident is symbolic of the vast interest Information Services arouses in world-wide news organiza- tions. Some duties of the division on the campus are publishing the campus directory, campus maps, " Tech Times, " " Icasal Newsletter, " and " Texas Tech Reports. " Requests for Tech news re- leases are constantly coming in from all over the nation. i t ■v3 6 Tyme 4 I
