DEDICATION


The staff of the Torchlight dedicates this issue to Joseph B. James, through
whose efforts much of the recent rapid progress of Kappa Phi Kappa has been made
possible. While president of Alpha Lambda chapter, he was instrumental in estab-
lishing our first house. As a delegate, he was influential in carrying through im-
portant measures at the 1934 national convention of Kappa Phi Kappa in Cleveland.
The inauguration of a Freshman Week program for the orientation of College of Edu-
cation freshman was made successful, largely through his efforts. Brother James
served as a member of the 1933-34 Executive Council. For the past year he has been
president of Kappa Delta Pi, honorary education society. It is also worthy of note
to state that "Joe" is the only College of Education student to have had the honor
of holding the presidency of all three education organizations: Kappa Phi Kappa,
Kappa Delta Pi and Peabody Club. During the past year Brother James has been dili-
gently engaged in the writing of a master's thesis in history. This outstanding
piece of work, entitled "Edmund Kirby Smith--Soldier of the South," deals with the
life and accomplishments of that venerable Confederate soldier, General Kirby Smith.
Because of "Joe's" outstanding work here at the University, he has been given a
position on the 1935 Summer School faculty as an instructor in history and political
science. Those of us who have had the opportunity to know "Joe" feel that we are
fortunate in having had such a distinguished Kappa Phi Kappan as a brother. The
staff of the Torchlight wished to congratulate Brother James, and to extend to him
the best of wishes for future success.

EDITORIAL

When the Torchlight was made the official publication of Alpha Lambda chapter
of Kappa Phi Kappa two years ago, it was the intention of the chapter that this
organ of communication be published three times a year, During the first year of
existence the Torchlight carried out such a policy. However, during the second
year this precedent was not followed--a fact which must have caused you alumni no
little wonder. The main reason for this irregularity lies in the fact that the
first edition of this year appeared at such a late date that two additional editions
would have proved unnecessary.
In an earlier issue it was aptly stated that the aim of the Torchlight is "to
provide a medium for the exchange of ideas between the three main components of our
educational system: the College of Education faculty, the active teachers of the
state, and the education students here at the University." Now, we regret to say
that the largest factor of Alpha Lambda chapter has not done its part to carry on
this aim. In short, our alumni have failed. We have issued a plea for better com-
munication with us. We are trying to do our part by submitting this publication
for your approval. But, how are we to know what you think of our enterprise, or
whether you have even received a copy of the Torchlight? Let us hear from you.
You will find our address on the preceding page.
As has been the custom in the past, we are including the chapter roll of mem-
bers of Alpha Lambda chapter. If you have recently changed your address, or if you
know the location of other alumni brothers, please inform us that we may serve you
better.
It has been suggested that Alpha Lambda chapter create an employment bureau
for the benefit of its members. Many of you alumni hold responsible positions in
the state educational system. Could you not do your part by assisting brother
Kappa Phi Kappians.in securing positions worthy of their special training at the /
University. In cade you are unaware of the fact, let us remind you that we have
for the past year maintained hightstandards of qualification for membership, in-
cluding among other requirements a 1.5 average in college work. As time goes on,
we hope that the standards of our fraternity may reach even greater heights than
those upon which it was founded. In a consideration of such standards for member-
ship--what do you alumni think of the idea of creating what might be known as the
Employment Bureau of Alpha Lambda chapter of Kappa Phi Kappa?
To list a few of the accomplishments which have been carried out this year---
a more detailed account of these enterprises may be found in the article, "Kappa
Phi Kappa Takes Several Forward Steps," in this issue---we might mention the moving
into a new chapter home, the establishment of a dining room, the building of a re-
cords chest, the founding of a chapter library and the successful initiating of a
Freshman Week program. But, with the establishment of the new General College here
at the University, changes will necessarily need to be made in such a program. In-
deed, the General College will make it incumbent on Alpha Lambda chapter to adapt
itself to a limited field from which to select new members, due to the fact that
incoming freshmen will not be permitted to take education courses until their junior
year. Thus, there will be no men eligible for membership until their late junior
or early senior year, if the national Kappa Phi Kappa requirements--credit for six
hours in education--are to be met. We sincerely hope that the chapter will be able
to adjust itself to this change.
So you see, we have a trying program to carry on next year. It is our earnest
desire that these projects be successfully completed and that you alumni help in
whatever way you may be able.
The staff of the Torchlight extends to each and every member the best of
wishes.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR NEW PRESIDENT





Kappa Phi Kappa House
1136 W; Union St.
dainesVrille, Fla.
May 14, 1938

Dear Brothers:

We new officers who are going to guide Alpha Lambda chapter through the next
year face a multitude of problems. They are not insignificant or imaginaLy; they
are unfortunately real and serious~ Almost half of our active members are gradu-
ating at the end of this semester, Next year, with the new junior college plan
in effect, we will not be able to draw upon the Freshman class for new members, as
we were able to do this year* Thus we can see that our membership will be greatly
reduced. Without the whole-hearted cooperation of every member on the campus next
year, we will not be able to hold the pace that has been set for us by the officers
of the organization during the last two years.
So much has been accomplished in these two years that there seems to be little
left for us to do. But such is not the case. For one thing, we must hold the
ground that has been gained, although reduced membership is going to make this more
difficult than it has been in the past* We must maintain our house and our Torch-
liht, and carry to completion the library project which has been started We must
gai closer contact with the alumni of this chapter, for they can help us and we may
be able to help them. We have discussed the possibility of putting into operation
a Kappa Phi Kappa employment bureau. We would appreciate any advice on this last
topic from our alumni brothers*
I am not trying to make excuses in advanced I am merely laying the facts before
you. Judge for yourself whether we must cooperate or note The officers cannot ac-
complish a great deal without the support of each and every member, those on the
campus and those already in teaching positions.
Let us work together, then, for the advancement of our chapter and the teaching
profession.

Fraternally,


Walter E* Barker, Pres.

BROTHERS ACTIVE IN CAMPUS POLITICS

A very respectable number of the members of our chapter were candidates in the
recent campus-wide elections--some being successful, and the others joining the
ranks of the "also rans."
"Prexy" Lovejoy tops the list, as he was elected Chancellor of the Honor Court
for next year. Jimmy Bryant was selected to serve on the Lyceum Council, and Bill
Chambers was chosen a member of the Board of Student Publications, Our new presi-
dent, "Walt" Barker, was elected to the Honor Court representing the College of
Education, after having served on the Executive Council for the past year. "Pete"
Tully, a recent pledge, will serve on the Executive Council for this next year.
Others who were not so successful in their campaigns were Raymond Vickery and
Maurice Fletcher for the Honor Court, and Pat Land and Bob Benson running for the
Executive Council. Several of these defeats were due to the fact that the men were
running against each other. Considering the large number of men who ran, and also
the number elected to important campus-wide offices, it is seen that Kappa Phi
Kappa is really quito active in the political field. -i
M.O.F.





NEW OFFICERS ELECTED AND NEW MEMBERS PLEDGED AT RECENT MEETING

Two functions which are essential to the continued success of Kappa Phi Kappa
are the choosing of worthy men for membership and the electing of competent offi-
cers for leading the chapter. Alpha Lambda chapter feels that it has performed
these functions well this spring. During the meeting of May 7, 1936, two men were
pledged and chapter officers for the school year 1935-36 were elected.
The pledging ceremony went off very smoothly under the practiced hand of
President Lovejoy. Although only two men were pledged, we feel rather satisfied
because these two, W. He Claywell and G. Emerson "Pete" Tully, are quite evidently
men of Kappa Phi Kappa calibre. Mr. Claywell is active in N.E.A. and F.E.A., is
vice-president of the West Coast Teacher's Association and a member of the executive
board of the Hillsborough County Teacher's Federation. Mr. Tully is a member of
the 1935-36 Executive Council, President of Peabody Club, President of Theta Chi
fraternity and a junior in the R.O.T.C.
The election of officers was as a zephyr where a hurricane was expected. In
fact, the session was so tranquil as to seem almost impossible. Nine officers
were elected, and in every case the election was unanimously After the election,
President Lovejoy in his tast official act as chapter president installed the fol-
lowing men, who have been chosen to lead the chapter for the coming school year:
President -- Walter E. Barker, Jacksonville
First Vice-president James B. Hunt, Dade City
Second Vice-president -- Patterson B. Land, Miami
Treasurer -- Raymond F. Vickery, Avon Park
Recording Secretary -- Russell E. Miller, Babson Park
Corresponding Secretary -- Victor C. Grandoff, Jacksonville
Faculty Adviser -- Dr. J. Hooper Wise, Gainesville
Editor-in-chief of the Torchlight -- Edward F. Nolan, Fernandina
Business Manager of the Torohlight George R. Bentley, Miami

GRADUATING SENIORS OF KAPPA PHI KAPPA

Kappa Phi Kappa is justly proud of her graduating members this year. Not only
are they outstanding in scholastic work, but also in extra-curricular activities
which range from literary societies to varsity athletics.
Howard E. Barnes, of Fort Lauderdale, is majoring in mathematics and science
and is minoring in Latin and Spanish. He will receive his B.S.E. degree in June.
"Barney" has been past managing editor of the past two editions of the Torchlight
and is now serving as editor-in-chief of the present issue of the publication. He
is also a musician and plays the violin in the University of Florida Symphony
Orchestra. He is a member of Peabody Club. "Barney" has been active in Christian
Endeavor work of the Presbyterian Church during his four years residence at the
University. He has a B average for his four years of work.
Newborry is the home town of William G. Chapman, another of our outstanding
seniors. "Billy" is doing his major work in economics and has chosen as his minors
English and the social studies. He has also had considerable experience in the
field of tests and measurements. "Billy's" extra-curricular activities include
membership in the band, Peabody Club and Kappa Phi Kappa. Next year he plans to
open a commercial department at Greenville.
When Donald F. Dyal graduates in June with the degree of B.S.E., he will be
qualified to teach mathematics, the natural sciences, and Spanish. Don's college
career has not been devoted merely to studies, however, although he has maintained
a good average in them He has been a member of Peabody Club and for one term
served as reporter for that organization. He has also been a valuable member of
Kappa Phi Kappa, serving as recording secretary for the 1935-34 term. He comes
from Cross City.
Melvin 0O Fuller, of Clearwater, has also been a leader in campus affairs. He
served as circulation manager of the Florida Review (1934-35), and it was largely
due to his efforts that the magazine met with campus-wide reception. He has been
an active member of Peabody Club and has held the offices of secretary, vice-presi-
dent and president of that organization. "Mo" has taken a keen interest in his
military work, as well as in his other courses, and has achieved the rank of cap-
tain in the R.O.T.C. unit at the University.
Boze Harris Kitchens is another senior of whom we and Pine Mount, Florida, his
home town, are proud. He has a wide interest in all studies, but has chosen Eng-
lish, Spanish, education and philosophy--in all of which he will be certified at
graduation--as his particular fields. He is a member of Los Picaros, Spanish honor
society. He is also an active member of Kappa Delta Pi, an has rendered valuable
service as pledge guide for Kappa Phi Kappa this year. Many honors have come to
Bozo during his senior year. Besides being elected to membership in Phi Kappa Phi,
he has been awarded a graduate scholarship in English for 1935-1936.
Gordon W. Lovejoy was well qualified to serve as president of Kappa Phi Kappa
during the 1934-1935 term, for he had had ample experience in the executive line.
In the fall of 1934 he was elected president of Peabody Club and rendered capable
service in that office. Appointed as clerk of the Honor Court, he filled that
office for the period 1934-35. He is now chancellor of that body, having been
chosen by the campus-at-large during the spring elections. He has recently been
elected to Blue Key, honorary activity fraternity. Besides the activities mention-
ed above, he served on the Florida Review staff as business manager during 1934.
In the winter of this school term he was elected to membership of Kappa Delta Pi.
With all his activities, Gordon has achieved the enviable scholastic record of 2.9
plus. He has been honored in his senior year by election to Phi Kappa Phi and has
been awarded the graduate scholarship in history. He'has done major work in history
and has minored in English and French.

the College of Education this year. He graduates in June with a B.A.E. degree.
During his four years on the campus he has distinguished himself both by his inter-
est in the activities of his college and his participation in the issues of the
campus. His preparation for the teaching field has been a concentration on com-
mercial subjects, mathematics and English. His influence has been felt in Peabody
Club since he became affiliated with that organization.
Another of our seniors from Clearwater is F. Milton Plumb, who, upon gradua-
tion, will receive the degree of B.A.E. He, too, has devoted much of his time to
extra-curricular activities. Besides being a member of Kappa Phi Kappa, he also
belongs to Peabody Club. He has done work un the Alligator, the weekly newspaper
of the student body, and has taken part in inter-murals.
William F. Roberts, of Lake Placid, Florida,-"Willie" to us--has been an out-
standing student since his entrance into college. During his freshman year he was
initiated into Phi Eta Sigma, freshman honor society which requires of its members
an average of 2.5 or higher. He plays the viola skilfully and is a member of the
University of Florida Symphony Orchestra. "Willie" is an excellent student of Eng-
lish and Spanish, his majors, and social science, his minor; he will be qualified
to teach all these subjects when he graduates. He has been honored for his work
in Spanish by being made a member of Los Picaros, Spanish honor society. His chief
interest--as the interest of all the members of Kappa Phi Kappa--lies in education;
and besides being a member of Kappa Phi Kappa, he takes an active part in the af-
fairs of Kappa Delta Pi, honorary education fraternity.
Roy W. Russell has proved an excellent second vice-president for Kappa Phi
Kappa during his term of office. Besides. being a member of our organization, he
belongs to the Cavaliers. He has been active in educational work on the campus,
and has been appointed as an assistant in education for the Summer Session. He is
majoring and working for his M.A. in sociology and is double minoring in history
and economics. Ho comes from Tampa.
The college career of Homer E. Wakefield, Jr,, has proved that it is not neces-
sary to neglect one's studies in order to participate in other fields. Although he
has engaged in nearly every activity on the campus, he has maintained a scholastic
average which is well above the average for the student body of the University. He
is interested in athletics and has been a member of the track team since his fresh-
man year. He served as captain of the varsity cross-country team in 1934. Homer
also achieved membership in the "F" Club, an honorary athletic organization, in that
year. In 1933 he became a member of Peabody Club, the literary society of the 9bl-
lege of Education, and in that same year was chosen as a member of the Y.M.C.A. cab-
inet. He was elected vice-president of Kappa Phi Kappa for the 1934-35 term and in

N,E.F.



KITCHENS AND LOVEJOY RECEIVE GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS

Boze H. Kitchens and Gordon W. Lovejoy, two prominent members of the Alpha
Lambda chapter of Kappa Phi Kappa,'have been awarded graduate scholarships in the
Graduate School of the University of Florida for the year 1935-1936.
Mr. Kitchens has a general honor point average of 2.45 and an average of 2.85
in English, his proposed major subject. He plans to minor in Spanish and philoso-
phy.
Mr. Lovejoy, who plans to major in history and minor in political science, has
made an enviable record in under-graduate work. He has an honor point average of
3.00 in 44 hours of history and social studies, and has a general honor point aver-
age of 2.92.
Since both of these men are outstanding students and have made splendid re-
cords in under-graduate work, it is likely that they will achieve high honors in
the Graduate School.
M.G.Z.



KAPPA PHI KAPPA TAKES SEVERAL FORWARD STEPS

During the past year the fraternity has taken several steps forward. It has
moved from a house holding only eight members to one accommodating thirteen. In
our present home at 1155 W. Union St., there has been operated for the past semes-
ter a cooperative dining room, with fourteen of our fellow members availing them-
selves of the opportunity of enjoying nutritive, well-cooked, inexpensive meals
prepared by a brother member.
Previous to this year, the chapter records have been shifted about from pillar
to post. Now they are systematically catalogued in a large and handsome record
chest built by Brother Melvin 0. Fuller. As his pledge project Brother Raymond F.
Vickery has laid the foundation for a chapter library. And right here the resident
members wish to thank those alumni who have already-assisted with suggestions and
would appreciate donations for this enterprise.
Alpha Lambda chapter has shown its policy for service by initiating and execut-
ing a Freshman Week program, with the whole-hearted cooperation of Dean J. W. Nor-
man. Thus the orientation of incoming College of Education freshmen was more thor-
oughly effected. From the time that the freshmen applied for admission to the Uni-
versity, various ones of our brothers assisted in smoothing out the way of an other-
wise difficult adaptation to college life.

NATIONAL PRESIDENT SPEAKS TO ALPHA LMBDA

Dr. Joseph Roomer, national president of Kappa Phi Kappa, was honor guest and
principal speaker at the spring initiations of Alpha Lambda chapter of the evening
of April 15. Dr. Roemer, Professor of Education at George Peabody College for
Teachers in Nashville, was formerly on the faculty of the College of Education of
the University of Florida. He is a charter member of Alpha Lambda chapter of Kappa
Phi Kappa, and has expressed a keen interest in its growth.
In his address Dr. Roemer pointed out the value of graduate work for prospect-
ive teachers and advised that they carry on such advanced studies early in life in
order to better prepare for a more valuable service in the teaching profession. He
emphasised the attractive features of the teaching professions, including, contrary
to popular belief, opportunities for remunerative service comparable to those af-
forded by other outstanding professions.
Dr. Roemer instructed the chapter to chose such men as would be a credit to
Kappa Phi Kappa in the field of education. Many men come to college with a lack of
background, but will make excellent teachers. It is just such men that Kappa Phi
Kappa ought to help.. We must get these men early in their college work when we can
do something for them. We must also get a good cross-section of men who participate
in different activities.
Dr. Roemer further advised that we inspire in our men the conviction that school
teaching is the finest profession that they can choose and that we start them in as
freshmen with the idea of being school teachers who build up the lives of the youth
of our nation..
In closing, Dr. Roemer pointed out that the professions of law and engineering
were too highly rathd to the high school student, and that it is the duty of a pro-
fessional teachers' educational fraternity like Kappa Phi Kappa to show to the col-
lege undergraduate the benefits that await a person entering the teaching profession.
There are meny men in places of responsibility in education that receive salaries
larger than any political office except that of the President of the United States.

PEABODY CLUB

The early spring elections of Peabody Club brought the following men into
office: Melvin 0. Fuller, president; Herman Davis, vice-president; Victor Grandoff,
secretary-treasurer; Walter Barker, critic; and Julian Williams, reporter. Under
the efficient leadership of the president many matters of pertinent interest to the
Peabody Club and the entire College of Education were discussed and acted upon. A
forward step was made by the club when it conferred with the other College of Edu-
cation organizations in favor of working for a movement to require student teaching
for certification.
The club voted the following men into office at the late spring election: Pete
Tully, president; Maurice Fletcher, vice-president;-iJohn S. Sellers, secretary;
Herman G. Davis, critic; and Harold Hawkins, reporter.
A good representation of the club has fulfilled the attendance requirements for
the Attendance Award, and consequently Messers. Davis, Fuller, Grandoff, Lovejoy and
Sellers will have their names placed on the Award placard which hangs in the club
meeting room.
The club has made very substantial progress in the last few years, and has co-
operated splendidly with the other College of Education organizations. A joint
meeting of the faculty and members of the College of Education will be held later
this spring to celebrate the llth anniversary of the club.

RECENT NEW MEMBERS

Kappa Phi Kappa feels that it has in these ten men a fine representation of
the college, and, judging from their good records, they will function as very effic-
ient members of the organization and will be a credit to it.
George L. Anderson of the class of '37, one of our new members, hails from
Crystal River, Florida. He is an all-round fellow, as shown by his list of varied
activities. George boasts a good voice and for that reason has been a member of the
University Glee Club for the past two years. He is also an athlete, if we loo gt
his physical activity record. George is a member of the boxing team and the Cross
