Delta Sipa Phi ALPHA SIGMA CHAPTER Founded at the COLLEGE OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK in 1899 Established at MARYLAND in 1924 The Delta Sig ' s have found the year 1946-47 their post-war ' comeback ' on the Maryland campus. Even though last year was success- ful, they were still a relatively small group without a chapter house. The first semester found the majority of the brothers proudly residing under their own supervision in the remodeled and newly-furnished chapter house on Knox Road for the first time since 1942. As president, William Poling ably con- ducted the chapter business; Donald Gleasner served capably as vice-president; as sect.- editor Thos. Johnson handled all the paper work; and treasurer Jack Bell balanced the books. Wm. Steele held down the important post of House Manager, efficiently attending to numerous odd housing jobs. The chapter increased in September with the return of veterans Garrison Buchman, Wm. Hansbarger, Clark Hudson, Davis Kep- hart, Stanley Kihn, Wm. McCullagh, James Schaefle, and John Somers. Social chairman Jack Grathwol captained the events through the rush season, and planned open houses, smokers, dances, and parties for the rest of the year. Well remembered was the Sailors ' Ball, the first social function of ' 47. This is a traditional dance for all Delta Sigma Phi chap- ters. The reports were excellent — of the orchestra seated in a whale ' s mouth, the fire- place that had tentacles like an octopus, and of Robinson Crusoe ' s hut. The chapter had members on various ath- letic teams. Most publicized on theseathletes was red-headed PoUng who starred for his second season as right halfback; Walter Fehr was a tackle, and John Schreckengost re- turned to the gridiron after playing center last year. Stan ley Kihn took over his pre-war position on the track team, and Don Gleasner was Assistant Coach in basketball. Wm. Steele again was an Assistant Manager to the boxing team, and Miuray McCuUoch made the cheering squad.

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.

Sigma Chi GAMMA CHI CHAPTER Founded at MIAMI UNIVERSITY in 1855 Established at MARYLAND in 1942 The Sigma Chi house at 4600 Norwich Road was returned to its rightful owners last Sep- tember after a three-year trip with a girls ' sorority. Also, after seeing war-time service with the Red Cross, ' Mom ' Reed returned to her former position as housemother. The two policemen, sometimes called House Managers, who drove the rest around were Page Chesser for the fall semester and Leon Etzler for this most recent one. John Maslin juggled the finances; Charles Marsteller kept the minutes; Seth Preece was vice-president, and Charlie Brock, president. Clark Shaughnessy, Maryland football men- tor and a brother Sigma Chi, had at least one Sig, Paul Massy, playing regular ball for him. Also connected with the football squad was Johnny Poole, head manager. On the hard- wood, pledge Johnny Edwards was one of Ship ' s starting five, and brother Jack Heise managed the basketball team for the second year in a row. The Sig bowling team won the championship in the Interfraternity Bowling Tournament, and Bob Gralley was Intra- mural Badminton champ. The Sig House was well represented in campus activities proudly sponsoring Charlie Brock as president of the Senior Class, ' Bull ' Heise as vice-president of the Student Govern- ment Association, and two honoraries, Latch Key and Pi Delta Epsilon, were prexied by two brothers — Jack Heise and Fred DeMarr, respectively. In the publication field brother Fred DeMarr spent his second year in the Terrapin office, this time as Photography Editor. Pledge Johnny Appel, treasurer of the Freshman Class, was in the Diamondback office with Bob Wiley, and Jim Zimmerman scribbled for the Old Line. As for the clubs, Fred DeMarr was President of the Canter- bury Club, Bob Scott the Art Club, Don Chaney the German Club, and ' Buz ' Hall the International Relations Club. With many pleasant memories behind them and many more yet to be born, the Sigma Chis close an eventful and prosperous year.
