The Alumni Club Activities
PLANS for our Founders Day banquet are rapidly
being completed under Chairman Robert E. Sipes,
Case '36. A definite date has not yet been set as we
are attempting to obtain a very fine speaker, and it
may be necessary to fit the date of our banquet into
the speaker's schedule. We expect that the banquet
will be on or about March 15. An announcement as
to the definite date will be sent to all Phi Delts in
the Cleveland area for whom we have addresses. Anyone not receiving an announcement should call
Brother Sipes at Cherry 2140; Don Taze at Main 6846;
or Bob Kaiser at Main 536.5.
Attendance at the regular weekly luncheon meetings has rapidly increased. The luncheons are held
at the Cleveland Athletic club every Friday at 12:15
P.M. All Phi Delts in Cleveland are urged to come
and enjoy the good fellowship ROBERT RAISER.
HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL
PHIS at the Harvard Graduate School of Business
Administration have maintained the function of fraternity despite a busy war-time curriculum. Several
buffet suppers were held at the Faculty club for the
purpose of welcoming members of incoming classes
and .of classes at the Naval Supply School.
Once again A is well represented in the Executive Board of the Business School Association. The
retiring members, Jim Collins, president; Bill Montgomery, vice-president; and Ed Cavin, were replaced
by Ed Cox, new vice-president, Lynn Northrup, and
Bill Haak. At a farewell dinner Collins was toasted
tor his fine work as leader of the Association for the
past year. He is recognized by faculty and students as
the most outstanding president in years.
The Fraternity, together with the Betas and Sigma
Chis, held a highly successful Miami Triad dance
December 11 at Mellon Hall. Phis and their dates
gathered beforehand for dinner.
The Business School is now entirely devoted to wartime instruction. No new civilian classes will be admitted for the duration and the last regular degrees
will be awarded in June. The school is already train-

school on campus. A majority of the civilians in
school are members ot an R.O.T.C. Advanced Quartermaster unit, while others hold reserve commissions
in the Navy. Those not physically qualified will go
directly into service with war industries.
We are proud that Donald K. David, Idaho '16,
has been named Dean of the Business School. Among
Dean David's assistants is J. Leslie Rollins,-ATort/iwestern '30

THE Houston Alumni club continues to meet regularly
the second Tuesday of each month for lunch on the
mezzanine floor of the Rice Hotel. Plans are being
made for a Founders Day banquet to be held at this
hotel, Saturday evening, March 20. Saturday evening
has been chosen in order that Phis at nearby army
camps, Ellington Field and Camp Wallace, may attend.
TWO of our members have given their lives in the
service of our D. (Jack) Busick, Missouri
'36, and Richard Stafford, Missouri '38 ELLIOTT A.
Milwaukee Alumni club continues to hold its
regular Friday luncheons at the Medford Hotel. To
Phis who can get downtown at noon, we extend an
invitation to join us in our hour of relaxation. The
conversation is both interesting and informative. Sometimes someone is on the pan. AU have a good time
and on leaving feel refreshed. The Founders' Day
banquet will be held March 19 in the library of the
University club. All Milwaukee Phis should plan to
attend. We have recently heard from Lt. John Lehnbeig of the Coast Artillery and Lt. Frank. Lenox,
United States Navy. Both are fine and doing well
E. G. HEBERLEIN, Secretary.
Philadelphia Phis continue to meet regularly on
Wednesdays at Brother Clarence Kugler's Chestnut
Street Restaurant and, sad to relate, the "regulars"
continue to make up the bulk ot our attendance. We
can appreciate the fact that the pressure ot war
activities make it appear difficult to attend luncheons
but we have it on the word of many that the relaxation such luncheons provide help a lot to keep the
pressure down. We encourage all Phis within commuting distance ot Kuglers to try the treatment.
Dr. Herbert T. Kelly, nationally known nutrition
specialist, was a recent luncheon speaker. His subject,
"Proper nutrition during food rationing" was well
received by a somewhat larger-than-usual audience.
R. R. Williams, Iowa State '35, and Chief of the
Division ot Consumer Credit of the Federal Reserve
Bank, Philadelphia, was scheduled to speak to us on
"Regulation W" but was called to duty with the
Army before he could get to it. Brother Williams reported to the New Cumberland Induction Centre.
We were glad to have with us recently Brother
H. F. Carter, and hope that he will make it a habit.
More recently we were pleasantly surprised to receive
a visit from Brother RoUin Bortle, New York City,
a past president of our club.
