Sipa 1 DELTA PHI CHAPTER Founded at VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE in 1869 Established at MARYLAND in 1914 The followers of the White Star doubled their ranks in a year ' s time, and as a result, were able to pile up honor after honor. One of the leading fraternities on campus, Sigma Nu has had to struggle through rush seasons without a chapter house to entertain prospec- tive pledges. Recognizing this plight, a num- ber of the sororities offered their assistance and the use of their houses. The actives and pledges were guided through happy days by President Josh Miller, Vice-president Dale Trusheim, Treasurer Bob Bremmer, and Tom Devlin as Recorder. Sports activities, always one of Sigma Nu ' s strong points, claimed an unusual number of active members. Four football regulars who saw action throughout the season were Vic Turyn, Emile Fritz, Jim Kurz, and Roy Mor- tar. Vic Turyn went on playing basketball, and later in the spring took up baseball along with Jack Flynn, Kenny Bransdorf, and Paul Zetts, the manager. Varsity track needed Tom Devlin, Sterling Kehoe, Brian Fennell, and Jim Kurz, while Warren Hoffecker and Dick Hoddinott held their own at lacrosse. Active also in intramurals, Sigma Nu was runner-up in football, volleyball, and basketball. Organizations, too, were staffed by ' Snakes. ' Josh Miller, president of the Interfraternity Council, is also vice-president of the Ross- borough Club, while Dick Hoddinott is Sopho- more vice-president and Mike Zetts is presi- dent of the Riding Club. Chapter meetings during this past year have been held at a private home called simply ' Holbrook ' s ' . Because Harold Hol- brook, varsity wrestling manager, and his two brothers are ' Snakes, ' Mrs. Holbrook invited the boys to hold their meetings in her basement. The Pirate ' s Ball was the usual success and the Spring Formal was held with the George Washington Chapter in one of the downtown hotels. This group of campus leaders may feel rightly proud of the records they have made. Members: Joseph Bauman, Harold Berry, Robert Biser, Kenneth Bransdorf, Robert Bremer, Daniel Brown, Thomas Chisari, George Cornell, Thomas Devlin, Oscar DuBois, William EUett, Erwin Engelbert, Norman Farrell, Edward Fennell, James Flynn, John Flynn, Emile Fritz, John Gilmore, Raymond Harrison, John Himes, Richard Hoddinott, William Hoff, Thomas Hoffecker, James Hoffman, LeRoy Houck, Thomas Jones, Stirling Kehoe, James Kurz, Charles McBride, John Meagher, Joshua Miller, Robert Moore, Frank Morrisette, LeRoy Morter, Ashby Musselman, John O ' Connor, Richard Oswald, Chester Peregoy, William Plate, Donald Price, Robert Senser, John Snyder, Henry Suzier, William Tribble, Robert Troll, Cale Trusheim, Victor Turyn, Robert Webster, Hubert Werner, Percy Wolfe, Michael Zetts.

Kappa Alpha BETA KAPPA CHAPTER Founded at WASHINGTON AND LEE UNIVERSITY in 1865 Established at MARYLAND in 1914 The Kappa Alpha Fraternity house burned down even before it was returned to its right- ful occupants following the war years. Most of the debris had been cleared away during the summer, but for the first month of school the boys found themselves minus light, heat, plumbing, and dining facilities. The sight of the KA ' s making their early morning trek up to the dorms (boys ' dorms, that is !) with their towels, soap, and razors was a familiar one during those first hectic thirty days. The Knights plunged into formal rushing with vigor, wet paint, and plaster notwith- standing. At the end of the rush season a total of 39 men were pledged, and KA settled down to a peacetime fraternal life. One of the real signs of a return to normalcy was the successful KA Minstrel Show reinstituted by Producer-Director ' Wimp ' Orpwood. This year Homecoming was a big affair for the KA ' s who, with the Kappa Kappa Gam- ma ' s, carried off the first prize in the float parade. Helping the student effort in building their school, John Cochrane was treasurer of the Rossborough Club; Bill MacDonald was editor of the Diamondback, and Chester ' Grassy ' Grassmuck, advertising manager. By the beginning of the year, errant Knights had indulged in the all-time favorite pastime of marriage. Among those were Pete Raines, Carlton Roxborough, Ralph Pennywitt, Ed Johnson, Johnny Mirceron, Joe Tuches, and Chester Grassmuck. Ben Wilson, a real 4 ' er from ' 42, returned to take over the prexy chair, while Johnny Cochrane was second-in- command. And so, after a busy and profitable year, the brothers said good-bye to those not returning and are already looking ahead to September when once again we will see them gather on the hill.

Phi Kappa Sipa ALPHA ZETA CHAPTER Founded at the UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA in 1850 Established at MARYLAND in 1899 After lying dormant through the war years the Alpha Zeta Chapter of Phi Kappa Sigma is once more on the march towards estab- Ushing itself as one of the most prominent fraternities on the Maryland campus. Almost without exception the Phi Kap ' s who left their studies to enter the Armed Forces were back this last year. Supplemented by these members they swelled their ranks to 35 actives and 22 pledges. Many parties and dances were held after athletic contests in the chapter house. Home- coming was especially gay with many alumni back for the first time since before the war. With the acquisition and renovation of their temporary chapter house the Phi Kap ' s held an accelerated and successful social season, highlighted by the Skull and Bones Dance which traditionally provides the epitome of entertainment. Alpha Zeta has become increasingly extra- curricular minded. For the first time since the shift from Baltimore in ' 41 the chapter took upon itself the full schedule of Inter- fraternity sports. Partaking in football, basketball, softball, and bowling, made an extremely good showing for their initial at- tempt. As the chapter increases in size with the turning years, greater successes will be in order. Phi Kap has also make its contribu- tions to the varsity teams. Harry Gamble and Bob Tall filled the 145 and 155 pounds posi- tions while Bill Shehan and Tom Germack were managers. Victor MuUins and Bill Jameson managed the basketball and la- crosse teams respectively. Leading the fraternity scholastically were Walter Beam and Romeo Mansueti. Aside from teaching, Walt is engaged in the composi- tion of a college algebra textbook. Romeo, on the other hand, is considered one of the state ' s leading Herpetologists. Phi Kaps have dabbed into almost every type of social activity, having had representa- tion in numerous clubs and honoraries. A large number of the members were musically inclined and played a dominant part in musi- cal affairs. Walter Beam, an officer in Clef and Key, has played a major role in all the productions put on by that organization. Under the superb guidance of Henry Turner and his staff of able assistants Phi Kappa Sigma can be none other than optimistic for the coming year.
