;• 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.
