The SCROLL of Phi Delta Theta for November,
Side of the Road on September 9, 1942. There were
more than 125 Phis and rushees attending this party,
and from all evidences all had a fine time. In accordance with our custom, no formal program was
followed, but interesting and inspiring talks were
given by Brothers Kanaga, Everham, Ready, Claycomb, Jenkins, and Kennedy. Brother Dave Jeffrey,
President of the Club, moved the meeting along in
his usual efiicient fashion. Incidentally, Brother
Jeffrey attended the Annual Convention at Chicago,
August 26-27-28, and brought back glowing reports of
the nationwide progress of the A.
AGTIVITIES of the Macon Alumni Club, for,the past
year have centered around providing a chapter house
for the Georgia Gamma Chapter at Mercer University. The brothers are now occupying, for the second

Necessary repairs have been made. About one-fourth
of the total cost of the house and improvements has
already been raised. C. Baxter Jones is general chairman and Charles M. Cork is secretary-treasurer of

weekly luncheons at the Hotel Medford have
been fairly well attended. These have been a source
of relaxation and entertainment through good fellowship. Our was the guest of Brother Tom
Gettelman one summer evening at the Rathskeller
of the Gettelman Brewing Company. A fine supper
was enjoyed by all. Cards were played later to round
up a pleasant evening. The Milwaukee Journal recently held open house in its Radio City, newly completed broadcasting station. The lobby of this beautiful building has on its walls four sgraffito murals
which symbolize radio broadcasting. These murals
are by Brother Jefferson Greer, Wisconsin '27, Milwaukee artist-sculptor. Brother Greer has recently
gone into the service, as have Lieutenant John Lehnberg and Corporal Ralph Gooding. We record these

DESPITE the absence of scheduled speakers, attendance
at the weekly luncheons of the Philadelphia Phis
held up remarkably well during the summer months.
It seems that a certain group of "regulars" make
up the largest part of our attendance, although it
is safe to assume that there are many more Phis
within walking distance of Kuglers Chestnut Street
Restaurant who would enjoy these Wednesday meetings if only they would make the effort. There are,
no doubt, many younger men who have not as yet
ventured a visit with us. Then there probably are
other Phis who have in recent months been transferred to this growing centre of war industry or who
have come to this metropolitan area with the numerous Federal bureaus. We would like, through this
column, to extend especially to these two groups
a most cordial invitation to "barge in" at any time
and make themselves at home. No special invitation
is necessary and one doesn't have to be a dues-paying
member. We'll be happy to see you. If, after the
first visit, you agree that we are a pretty congenial
bunch of Phis you can make lunching at Kuglers a
The Club has entered the fall and winter season
with an excellent schedule of featured speakers. The
meeting of October 21 was especially well attended.
Brother Bill Bailey was responsible for securing as
our speaker Mr. Lewis W. Powell of the optical
division, Frankford Arsenal. His talk was supplemented by an interesting exhibit of lenses and prisms
in various stages of manufacture. Incidentally, Brother
Bailey manufactures the machines that grind these
lenses. We were glad to have as our guest Mr. J. Paul
Skidmore, vice-president of the Real Estate Trust
Company, and were happy to see Brother Fred M.
Tuton, Jr., and Brother Judge Charles Alvin Jones
in attendance. Future luncheon speakers will include
a representative of the War Production Board who
will discuss "priorities" and Dr. Soong of the Chinese
Diplomatic Corps who will talk on his native country.
And, looking ahead still further, we can tell you 'that
the date of the Founders Day banquet has been set,
for March 15. The Philadelphia Alumni Club extends a sincere and hearty welcome to all
regardless of age or stop in any
Wednesday at Kuglers Chestnut Street Restaurant to
make new friends, renew old acquaintances, or just
eat and run
