The Alumni Club Activities
Cleveland Alumni club has reduced its soci'al
activities in order to aid as much as possible the war
effort. The annual golf and football parties were
cancelled because of transportation difficulties and
because so many of the brothers engaged in essential war work could not spare the time from their
work. James G. Sterling, Jr., Case '36, has been commissioned a Lieutenant (jg) in the Navy, necessitating
his resignation as president. Don L. Taze, Illinois
's2, former vice-president, has very ably taken over
Brother Sterling's duties.
At the regular weekly luncheon meeting preceding
the Illinois-Ohio State football game, the chapter
was honored to entertain Justa Lindgren, Illinois '03,
line coach at Illinois, who discussed the lUini football team and its possibilities.
Luncheons are held regularly each Friday noon at
the Cleveland Athletic club. All Phis in the city,
and visitors, are urged to attend ROBERT KAISER,
THE Kansas City Alumni club continues to hold its
regular Friday luncheons at Brother Frank Wachter's
place at 1112 Baltimore Avenue. Come on. Brothers,
and join us for lunchl
We had a particular festive luncheon on Friday,
December iS, at which Christmas was celebrated in
the traditional Tom and Jerry fashion. Good food,
good fellowship and good singing (?) prevailed. A
splendid turnout of Phis had a grand time.

The New York Alumni club loses its president
Intelligence Division of Air Corps.
All was not fun and frivolity, however, for, as is
our annual custom, the club adopted a needy family
and generous contributions of food, clothing and
money guaranteed that one family would have a
truly Merry Christmas. Special credit is due the
Christmas Family Committee headed by Dave Jefferey and ably assisted by John Dalton, Jim Kirk, and
Jim Archie, for its untiring efforts in collecting, purchasing and delivering the gifts for one family.
We of Kansas City are particularly proud of the
selection of our own Dave Jefferey as the new president
of Mu Province, While we regret the fact that Dean
M. A. Durland of the Kansas State Agricultural College felt it necessary to resign, we know from past
experience with Dave that he will do a splendid job.
So we not only congratulate Dave, but also extend
our warm congratulations to Mu Province on its new
president. Good luck to you H. HOFFSTOT,

THE A Alumni club of New York has had its
officers' ranks greatly depleted in the past few months.
But it has been a loss of which the club is proud.
Five of the seven officers are in the armed services.
One of the remaining officers was prevented from being assigned to active service from the reserve list
by the head of the W.P.B., and the other club officer
was turned down on the physical examination after
volunteering and receiving a commission in the
Signal Corps. Those in the service are: Matthew
Campbell, Vanderbilt, Captain, Army Air Corps;
Donald Hayes, Colorado, Volunteer Officer Candidate;
William Mack, Columbia, Lieutenant, Naval Aviation
Reserve; Edward Goode, Lieutenant, Coast Guard;
Dudley Latham, Columbia, Private, U. S. Army.
The loss of brothers Goode and Campbell will
undoubtedly be felt most by the club. Eddie Goode
has been reporter for the New York Alumni club
since "heaven knows when," and was a member ot
SCROLL editorial board. He joined the Coast
Guard as a Lieutenant recently, following Matt Campbell, president of the club, who joined the Intelligence
Division of the Air Corps as a Captain late in the
