Alpha Phi Omega Devoted to service — Lyle Ames Alpha Phi Omega is the only national fraternity which is devoted entirely to service. The idea for a service fraternity was born in the mind of a young navy officer serving in the North Seas in the First World War, Frank Horton. He resolved to help young men get the right start in life by holding up before them a standard of manhood which would withstand the test of time. His legal training told him that a peaceful world was the most beneficial to mankind, so he decided to help in some manner toward establishing a permanent peace. Alpha Phi Omega was founded December 16, 1925, at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. In the beginning days of Alpha Phi Omega, Barton wrote the constitution &nd by-laws, selected the name and its meaning, and drew up the ritual. He was assisted in his work by other members who constituted the chartering group. After many months of preparation, fourteen men signed together to establish the fraternity. On December 16, 1925, in Brainerd Hall, these students and six advisors joined together in the ritual which created this fraternity dedicated to service. Mu Rho Chapter of Alpha Phi Omega, located en our campus was organized in the fall of 1952. Roger Bowen was elected chairman of the preparatory group and professor Deskin was chos- en, to be the Advisor. The group had to be dropped until the fall of 1958 because of the lack of members. The first charter of Mu Rho Chapter was granted in May of 1959. Through the years from 1958 to the present time Servce has been the main goal of our fraternity. Brothers of Alpha Phi Omega point to many outstanding service projects that have become nationally associated with Alpha Phi Omega. The UsJy Man contest which was held last spring on the campus is one of the most popular campaigns used in raising money for the many charitable projects of the chapter. Money from this o:>n- test gees to charity. Last year the young men voted to donate the profit from the Ugly Man contest to "CARE". A child was adopted by the local chapter. Little Sheila Bradley, a victim of a rare blood disease, was adopted by members of the fraternity. Several members donated blood for the little girl, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Bradley. After her death, a memorial book .fund was established to purchase books for the David B. Henderson Library on campus. Alpha Phi Omega is recognized by college officials as one of the outstanding organizations established to better our campus life. Assisting during registration day, helping at homecoming and parents' day, and sponsoring dances are but a few cf the services that our fraternity engages in on our campus. Last year the chapter was responsible for bringing Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong to the campus. With the proceeds from this project, we purchased a new file cabinet, which encloses all of the chapter's records. Alpha Phi Omega has grown on the Upper Iowa University campus. From its beginning in 1958 our fraternity has progressed rapidly and has become a tremendous constructive force on our campus. College Edition 15 Wednesday. September 13. IM1 Fayette Leader Fayette. Iowa The national conventions which are held twice a year, are stimulated locally by the leadership seminars. At these seminars, which are usually attended by about 50 members, service and administration are discussed. It can certainly be stated that Alpha Phi Omega is one of the stepping stones to a more enjoyable life. The men who are already members have a lot to look forward to. These current members are upholding the traditions they have pledged: Leadership, Friendship, and Service.
