Once again breaking from established precedent, we
dedicate this issue of the Torchlight, not to a single
person, but to a group-- that faithful body composed of
those conscientious students of the College of Education
and more especially of Kappa Phi Kappa. In these present
days when glittering professions and vocations beckon
the job of teacher is sadly neglected. Being without noisy
fanfare and attractive promises of great material fortune,
the profession of teaching is commonly thought to be re-
served for the infirm and weak, or for those who seem to
have no definite mission in life. Indeed the profession
is most generally l-oked down upon and pointed out as some-
thing to be avoided. It is even condemned sometimes by
those who have benefited most by it, and who have reached high
position as the direct result of the work of some teacher
or teachers. Has Society no rationality? Surely it recog-
nizes the necessity of teachers and education, but it is
most widely inconsistent in its uncomplimentary attitude to-
ward the teacher and his profession--to the extent, sane-
times, of open ridicule, and all of the time in its meager
material compensation for the work of the teacher.
In spite of the many obstacles in teaching--some of which
have already been intimated--there are still those daring
few college men vAho have the firmness of character and strength
of conviction to realize the perpetual need for teachers and
to embark sincerely on a teaching career. Mind praise is
aimed only at those who have the best interests of the pro-
fession at heart, who teach because they love to teach, and
who consider the social good of greater import than mere personal
ambition. Greater condemnation cannot be heaped on that class
of would-be teachers who enter the profession only "for the
job", or to tide them over until a better paying job turns up.
The greatest praise, however, is deserving to the group who has
always the ideal of better and more efficient education as its
goal in teaching---to this latter group this issue of the
Torchlight is respectfully dedicated*
!Thy The College Of Education?
.t the very outset--lest any statement be miscon-
strued--let us definitely and emphatically state that we
are most heartily in accord with the College of Education
as a potential force in the development of informed and
efficient teachers, who are to take up teaching as a life's
work. Indeed, may we go further in adding our belief that
the College of Education is the most important factor in
bringing about a more proficient and more highly respected
profession. Certainly it is undeniably recognized that a
specific unit, such as our College, devoted entirely to
the study of educational processes and practices, should be
more productive than would a system by which educational
theory might be taught as a part of the curriculum of some
other college. Granted all the above, then why the ex-
pression-of doulbt as to the necessity of a special college
for the preparation of future teachers? In a rather round-
about fashion we are pointing to a prevalent condition
which permits students of other colleges----Arts and Sciences,
Business Administrrtion, Engineering, et al.---to qualify for
certification merely on the completion of 18 semester-hours
of Education courses, nine to twelve hours less than required
for members of the College of Education. In effect, the way
of entrance into teaching.for students of these other colleges
is far easier and is accomplished with far more facility than
for students of the College of Education. From this situation
we cannot help b:ut discover an interesting corollary to the
effect that students from other colleges taking Education
courses are for the most part insincere in their desire to
teach, being motivated only by the fact that teaching will
provide a temporary' means of livelihood until a better paying
job can be found. If such *ere not true, these students
would have entered the College of Education in the first place;
but since sincerity is not their avowed purpose, they take the
Things have come to such a point now where there are
probably as many students from other colleges taking Education
courses as students in the College of Education, which would
be well and good if these students had better purposes in mind
than mere certification. The alarming part of the situation is
the fact that the tendency is becoming more pronounced every
year, and the equally alarming result is the fact that our
teaching profession is literally becoming glutted and packed
with poorly prepared teachers who lack the least bit of sincerity
and intent of purpose. And then we persistently talk of raising
the standards of the profession, of requiring better and more ex-
act training for teachers& hy, it would seem that the present

Eighth General Assembly:
A 1Word from the President....
.On October 22, 23, and 24 the Eighth General Assembly of
Kappa Phi Kappa convened in Birmingham, Alabama. Alpha Lambda was
represented by Dr. J. Hooper 'iise, Victor Grandoff, Russell Miller
and Julian Williams, and the report is definitely a favorable one.
Forty-three of the forty-eight chapters were well represented and
the business sessions and the entertaining programs were a credit
to the fraternity in every respect. The discussions were interesting
and illuminating,and the participation of all delegates was most
satisfactory. Several significant problems were brought up, dis-
cussed and passed upon, and we feel it advisable to list some of the
important legislation for the information of those who receive this
(1) "That, for purposes of expansion, there shall be regions
established by the National Council, one member in each region
appointed by the Council and responsible to it for the development
of the expansion program of that region. Expansion is interpreted
to mean: (a) the creation of new chapters and (b) the development of
a program peculiarly adapted to the strengthening of existing
(2) "That the recommendations in the report of the committee
on publications be adopted, as follows: in regard to the OPEN BOOK,
(a) that younger members of the Fraternity be encouraged to con-
tribute articles, (b) that the OPEN BOOK contain no items of merely
local interest, but reports of chapter activities or honors of a
distinctly professional interest that may suggest to other chapters
opportunities for their own program, (c) that articles discussing
problems of beginning teachers, many of them written by undergradu-
ates and young men in the educational field, be included, and (d)
that the OPEN BOOK continue to publish communications from the
National Officers and others; and in regard to the Catalogue, (a)
that each chapter accept and pay for the catalogues refused or
orders cancelled by its own members, (b) that each chapter carry
on an intensive campaign for the selling of the catalogues now on
hand at National Headquarters, and (c) that the deficit in the
Catalogue account be met from the National Treasury.
(3) "That the report of the alumni committee be adopted,
covering the following items:
(a) The Eighth General Assembly does hereby direct the
National Executive Committee to establish a system whereby members
of the Fraternity may be assisted in finding employment in teaching
and allied fields.
(b) The eighthh General Assembly does hereby approve an
annual "round-up" of Ka.pa Phi Kappans in various centers.
(c) The Eighth General Assembly commends the practice
of holding luncheons and similar gatherings of Kappa Phi Kappans
at meetings of the National Education Association and other con-
ventions of educational associations, and encourages more such
(d) The practice of certain chapters of mailing regular
news letters to all of their members, both active and alumni, is
heartily approved, and other chapters are encouraged to adopt this
(e) Active chapters of Kappa Phi Kappa are encouraged
to invite to some or all of their meetings all nearby Kappa Phi
Kappans, regardless of the chapters of which they are members.
(f) This General Assembly does hereby approve of the
formation of alumni chapters under the conditions hereinafter set
forth, and instructs the committee on constitution and by-laws to
prepare such changes in the fundamental law of the Fraternity as
may be required to legalize the formation of such chapters.
(g) The position of regional alumni director created
by the Seventh General Assembly is hereby abolished.
(h) The office of alumni director is to be continued
on the present basis.
(4) "That the following National officers be elected:
President: Gilbert W. Mead (Kappa)
President of Washington College
First V-President:H. Reid Hunter (Alpha-Epsilon)
Assistant Superintendent of Schools
Soc. V-President: John Henry Herrick (Alpha-Eta)
Principal of the Elementary Schools
Shaker Heights, Cleveland, Ohio
Secretary: Arthur D. Wright (Alpha)
President of the Slater and Jeanes Funds
Uashington, D. C.
Treasurer: Frederick G. Henke (Zeta)
Professor of Education, Allegheny College
(5) "That the charter fee for new chapters be reduced from
050.00 to 020.00.
(6) "That the fee for alumni initiates be reduced from )7.50 to
(7) "That each delegate be instructed to impress upon his
chapter that the balancing of the national budget for the
biennium is contingent upon an increase in active membership,
upon the addition of alumni to the chapter roll, upon the
sale of the General Catalogue, and upon the collection of
(8) "That By-Law 18 be amended by adding:
'The purchase of a key by any initiate shall be
optional and, in case any initiate elects not
to buy a key at the time of initiation, the
national initiation foe for said initiate shall
be reduced in the amount of the then current
contract price of the key.'"
Again tho Alpha Lambda chapter has been handicapped in its
activities by circumstances beyond its control. The General College
students who are planning to enter the field of education have not
as yet satisfied the requirements set up by the fraternity. Furthermore,
the fraternity has "lost" its house; that is, the 1135 Uest Union
Street abode, which the fraternity had leased for two years, has been
sold by the owner. However, a very satisfactory agreement was made
with the Cooperative Living Organization to take care of the various
furnishings which the fraternity owns. It is sincerely hoped that
a house can soon again be obtained for the Fraternity.
But the fraternity has not been inactive. Considerable
interest and enthusiasm was evinced by campus brothers concerning
the activities of the Eighth General Assembly,and it is hoped that
the new provisions passed will encourage those who might not have
been otherwise financially able to join the fraternity.
Alpha Lambda has carried out to a considerable extent the
recommendations of the Assembly. In regard to (c) of the above items,
the chapter held a very successful alumni breakfast at Homecoming
season last fall; the activities at this time are discussed more fully
in another article in this issue. In March the FEA will meet in
Orlando. At that time it is desired that Kappa Phi Kappa hold a
state-wide gathering and that all alumni actively participate in the
FEA programs and activities. Moro definite detailed information will
be sent to each alumnuslater this month outlining a program.
We take this opportunity of urging that alumni get together
and organize. The Assembly passed upon several measures which should
promote the establishment of some type of alumni organization, whether
it be an informal group or a regular chapter. So far this school
year the campus organization has not held an initiation. It is
planning to hold an election soon and to have an initiation early
in March which will be concomitant with the enthusiasm and success of
past K K initiations.
This rather formal "report" may not at first sound optimistic;
nevertheless, the campus branch of Alpha Lambda is composed of mem-
bers who are active and anxious to carry out activities of a con-
structive nature and of permanent value. The cabinet is at present
working out a program for far-reaching activity which we plan to
mimeograph and distribute. Cooperation is essential to success,
especially in an organization such as ours, so again we urge the
alumni to participate in whatever ways they deem pertinent to the
welfare of both local and national Kappa Phi Kappa.

OUTL OK FOR iLPHA LABDA CHAPTER
As we come once again to close of a year's activity in the
Alpha Lambda Chapter, our attention is invariably turned to the
prospects for the year ahead. Old members who are graduating will
leave us, and in their place will step new members---upon the co-
operated effort of these two groups, plus the interest of the old
alumni, depends the future success of our organization. The
resident students at the University will be depended upon to keep
alive the campus organization; the alumni members will be called
upon to operate in the field. By the coordinated endeavor of these
bodies we may reasonably expect a vivified and active chapter. To
this end may every effort be directed

We do not make bold to offer any wide-sweeping panacea
for this condition, nor do we yet advocate any drastic,
unpremeditated action, but we certainly urge some thought
on our problem if ever we hope to raise the teaching pro-
fession from the mediocre level of a mere "job" to its
rightful position of respected profession. Also there
is imminent danger to the integrity and reputation of the
College of Education. Certainly we cannot afford to lose
the influence of so important a factor in the development
of a more proficient and better prepared corps of teachers&
