The staff of the Torchlight dedicates this issue to Henry C. Fox,
who unfortunately was not able to be with us at the University this
year. Henry was one of the most active and diligent members ever to
enter the ranks of Kappa Phi Kappa. He served in the capacity of
treasurer throughout last year, and was ever alert in carrying out his
duties. He was instrumental in the organization of and represented
Kappa Phi Kappa in the Professional Inter-Fraternity Conference. Last
year he served as President of this body, and through his efforts our
chapter was rTade a leader among the other professional fraternities on
the campus. Henry's other contributions to the advancement and welfare
of Kappa Phi Kappa are too numerous to mention in this space. All of
us who have been fortunate enough to have associated with Henry cherish
his friendship and take this opportunity to thank him for his v:orl: in
the fraternity. Henry served as president this past summer and was
president-elect for this year, but accepted the offer of a teaching
position---his gain being our loss. Again wo take this opportunity to
dedicate this issue to a gentleman, a scholar, and a Kappa Phi
Kappian---Henry C. Fox.

Kappa Phi Kappa began what was considered a pioneer movement when
it undertook the publication of the Torchlight last year. Having had,
from all indications, what was considered a very successful beginning,
the fraternity decided to make the publication of the Torchlight a
permanent part of the activities of the organization. A certain fund
was provided for publishing three issues per year, and the positions
of editor-in-chief and business manager wore incorporated in the by-
laws of the constitution as officers of the fraternity.
Wo are inexperienced and quite incapable of such a venture; yet
we hope to convince our alumni that our efforts -re motivated by our
sincerity and zeal. We have as our goal the bringing about of a
closer and more intimate relationship between our active members and
our alumni. So far, as much as we hesitate to admit this fact, our
efforts have failed. Therefore, we send this plea to you, our alumni,
to get in touch with us, correspond with us, visit us, and let us know
what you are doing and where you are located. Some of our alumni have
been away from the university for a long time. ':e can understand
their lack of interest in the fraternity. But what of our crop of
brothers who graduated only six months ago? Are they keeping the
noble promises they so unhesitatingly made when they said that they
would surely keep in touch with us? Of this large group only one has
had the courtesy to let us hear from him. We wish to repeat our plea
again---alumni, let us hear from you.
The Editor


Last year Alpha Lambda broke all precedents by establishing a
house on the Florida campus. It was necessarily a small start, but
proved such a success that this year we decided to expand. While last
year our home held only eight mon, this year's accommodates thirteen
members. Thus a much closer contact between us is .nade possible.
Our present home is a large two story house on '.ost Union Street.
It has a spacious living room which has proven adequate for all meet-
ings. About a month after the opening of school this year, we discov-
ered that one of the fellows was an accomplished chef, so at the pres-
ent time twelve of us gather around the table in the dining room when
the dinner bell rings.
Don Dyal is the house manager, and keeps busy with the necessary
details. Joe James, our graduate student, is affectionately known to
the follows as "Dean" James. He takes care of all matters requiring
a mature mind.
While certainly not the general rule among professional fraterni-
ties, we foul that in maintaining our house, Kappa Phi Kappa has taken
a large forward step on this campus.

College of Education

Office of the Assistant Dean

At the present time, universities throughout the country are

attempting, in some manner, to reorganize their curricula in such a

fashion as to bring them closer to the dynamic life of to-day. Many

different plans are being formulated and tried out, among which that

of the University of Chicago is perhaps the pioneer.

The University of Florida has under consideration a similar plan

of reorganization. according to the tentative plans now in existence,

the present four-year college system will be broken up, so that all

Freshmen and Sophomores throughout the University will attend one

school, to be lnown as the College. Upon completion of this prelim-

inary two-year course, the student will enter one of the colleges

which make up the upper division.. Thus he will have a choice of

either the Arts and Sciences College or one of the professional col-

leges now in existence.

Orientation courses, of a broad and general nature, will be given

in the College, while specialization will be left for the upper divi-


It is claimed by the advocates of this system that more consider-

ation will be given the individual student in that provision for guid-

ance or counseling will be made.

Doar Brothers,
It seems funny to be writing you as an alumnus and not Cs an ac-
tivo member. But, although not with you in Gainosvillo, your activi-
ties will always be a source of interest.
You are indeed to be congratulated for attempting to undertake
the large task of guiding College of educationn freshmen through the
trials of beginning university life. This should prove a great op-
portunity to all concerned for service and experience.
Ainco leaving the University, I have had the privilege of talk-
ing -.ith other alumni members. They have all been deeply interested
in the activities of the chapter. The Torchlight is proving to be a
splendid medium to keep the graduates in touch with the work of the
Although you are making a hard financial struggle this year to
establish the house without raining the dues, it would be bad econ-
omy to cut expenses through the elimination of the ten to fifteen
dollars per issue for the Torchlight. This is the only bond which
holds the experience of the alumni to the activities of the chapter.
Instead, why not make an appeal to the graduates to contribute ;,.50
or .',l.O0 to help with the expense of publication.
Another place where alumni might help would be the professional
library for the house. Uan: have old education books which h they are
not using, but which would be good reference books for the students.
They might also send periodicals. I have had School Life sent to
the house for a half year. 'Tr. Fickards, the editor of the F.3.A.
Journal, told me last veek that he would be glad to send you his mag-
azine if you would write him a letter.
Wishing you continued success in keeping -appa Phi Kappa the
outstanding professional fraternity of the campus, both in quality of
members ania in service activities, I am,


Henry C. Fox




Alpha Lambda chapter of Kappa Phi Kappa is being weighed in the
balance as perhaps no other professional fraternity on the University
of Florida campus has ever been tested. Within the space of a single
year we, a professional group, have established a house. We have
built up the tradition of a chapter magazine. We have sponsored a
Freshman Week program which won favorable comment from every dean on
the campus. Our members have won positions of responsibility and lead-
ership all over the campus. But there are those on the outside who
are saying that our brilliance is as but a flash in a pan. They say
that we have achieved but that we can go no higher. It is because of
the many who are eager to say, "I told you so," that I say Alpha Lamb-
da chapter is being weighed in the balance.
To you who, like myself, are undergraduate members of Kappa Phi
Kappa, I issue a challenge. It is up to you to prove that the "crepe-
hangers" are not needed. Fo single officer, no group of officers, no
clique of members can alone bring success to our fraternity. 1o must
work together shoulder to shoulder if the chapter is to retain its
position of leadership among the professional fraternities on the cam-
pus. There is neither time nor place for petty squabbles, harbored
grievances, imagined slights on the part of any member or members. If
there be such, we must rise above them, sinking our personal f-elings
in order to work for the good of the group. It is in your hands, my
fellow members, and in your h.nds alone that the future of Alpha Lamb-
da chapter lies.
To you who are graduate members out in th. teaching field I issue
an invitation to r-new your bonds of fellowship with IKa:pa Phi Kappa.
Lot us know of your successes'-, for wu are interested in them. Share
with us your professional experiences so that we may all grow in pro-
fossio-al richness. Let us remain bound together so that we may be-
come a potent force in raisinrF the educational standards of the state.
Such we must become if we are to be true to our oath and to our frater-
To each and every one of you--both those uhom I have the honor of
numbering among my friends and those whom I know only as fellow broth-
ers of Kappa Phi KIppa--I extend my best wishes. A IKerry Christmas
and a H-Lppy -ew Y-er to each of you.

The present officers of the Florida AlphaLLambda chapter of
Kappa Phi Kappa are outstanding, well-qualified, and capable.
Gordon W. Lovejoy, serving this year as president, is well-fitted
for his position. He has filled a similar place in Peabody Club, and
has been treasurer of Kappa Phi Kpppa. Gordon is an honor student of
extremely high standing, a social science major, and expects to be
graduated at the end of next semester. He is a resident of Gainos-
Homer 2. Wakofield, our first vico-president, is a senior in edu-
cation. Homer is a member of Peabody Club, a lieutenant in the P.O.
T.C., and a member of Pi D3lta Sigma, social fraternity. He served
this yar as captain of the cross-country team, and is numbered
among the track squad. His home is in Barbervillo.
Our second vice-president is Roy Y!. Russell, a College of 3duca-
tion senior. I.oy, whose home is in Tampa, is a social science major.

The opening of the fall term of 1934-35 brought several promi!-
ing new recruits into our Po:-.body organization, and helped to make
the work of the incoming officers very successful.
Gordon Lovejoy, one of our outstanding seniors, occupied the
president's chair, and MHlvin 0. Fuller, also a senior, ranked next
in the office of vice-president. The members of the club selected
Sydney J. Weinborg as secrotary-treasurer, and Herman :Davis made a
ver; efficient critic.
The mid-semester elections placed Russell 2. :4ller, a sopho-
more, at the head of Peabody. Miiller is a pledge to Ka-ppa Phi Kappa.
I'aurico Fletcher is our newly-elected vice-president and Waltcr
Barker has assumed the duties of secretavy-treasurer. Gordon Lovojoy,
our past president, now holds the position of critic. All of the
present officials, vith the exception of Russell Mfiller, are active
members of X..ppa Phi KTppa.
Despite the fact that so many of our faithful and active members
will graduate e either in February of June of this coming year, we hope
to carry on and make our purpose: "To build and maintain a bigger and
better Peabody Club."

Alpha Lambda Chapter has this year entered into a now field of
active service. Uith the approval and whole-hoarted cooperation of
Dean J. VI. Forman, the entire Freshman eook program of the College of
Education \.as planned and executed by this group. It sought to better
orientate the incoming freshmen and to help thom over their initial
difficulties. Furthermore, this unusual type of Freshman 'eek poss
sessed some features that wore being continued throughout the first
Long before Freshman iooek began, every man who had applied for
admission into the College of Zducation had been contacted by mail and
was offered in a friendly way whatever aid in adjusting himesTf to his
new surroundings that his student counselor could render. It was a
brotherly gesture and the incoming students appreciated it as such.
Many were aided in selecting rooms and arranging for the now adventure
of college by thesJ self-appointed big-brothers.
The regular routine of Freshman i;eek as outlined by the Dean of
Mlon was not interrupted in any way, but in the several additional feat-
ures aiid in its administration a groat improvement is believed to have
been effected. lore friendly contacts were encouraged among the stud-
ents and between the students and faculty. An opportunity for making
friends was continually presented.
In the first place, this was attempted by the use of more student
counselors, each one being assignoa to a much smaller group of new
students than formerly. Instead of merely giving the freshmen a ch-Lnce
to ask advice on onu or two scheduled occasions during the week, these
student counselors accompanied their charges ,,hrover they, as a group,
wont during the wOek, rsady at any time to help or give a brotherly
word of advice. These men also made it sufficiently clear the
same helpful attitude would be gladly continued throughout the year.
It was realized by those who planned the work of freshmen orientation
that later, when work was actually under way, more advice and assist-
ance in the development of right habits would be needed than during
this rather bewildering period.
When the firtt-year man began that ordeal of registration which
all Florida mjn somewhat drad, his student counselors were right there
to smooth the way and to reduce his total of errors- It is remarkable
how a word of direction and advice during registration can prevent
later difficulties anu shorten the time spent waiting one's turn in
the long linos.
On the very first day of the week, a tour of the K. Yongo Lab-
oratory School ,as terminated by a uwiner roast near the building
vhere the new students met the members of the faculty in an informal
way. One evening, the freshmen were the guests of K.ppa Phi XKappa .t
a smoker held in the chapter home on UnionrStreet. There they met
some of the outstanding students of the college -nd were told some-
thing of the extra-curricular activities by members of various athlet-
ic teams and about the organization of the College of Education by
officers of 'P:ebody Club' Kappa Delta Pi and Kappa Phi Kappa.
During the week, Gordon Lovejoy led discussions of the Honor
System and Homer W~lkefield discussed organized recreation on the cam-
pus. Dr. Alfred Crago gave the new students some helpful suggestions

Alpha Lambda held an election of members recently and five out-
standing young men in the College of Education were chosen to member-
ship. election to membership in this organisation is a very selective
process and thus a high honor. In order to be pledged, a man must be
an advanced student in the College of education, show qualities of
leadership, have a high scholastic standing, show a genuine interest
in toachinig, and have a high moral standard.
The following men were elected and are now pledges.
Victor Charles Grandoff is a junior from Jacksonville. He is an
active member of Peabody Club, and a member of Los Picaros and the
French Club. He is majoring in languages and expects to teach them.
1elbourne L. Winton is another junior and is majoring in sciences.
He hails from Bushnell, and is also a member of the College of Edu-
cation organization, Peabody Club.
Russell Elliot miller is a sophomore in the College of education,
and makes his home in Babson Park. He expects to teach English anid
social subjects. That he is outst-nding is shown in that he was cho-
sen as a Freshman 'eook leader this year. In addition he has recently
been elected president of Peabody Club.
adward Francis Nolan is also a sophomore. Besides distinguish-
ing himself as a Freshman Week leader, he has a very high scholastic
standing. He comes from Fernandina and is a member of Peabody Club.
Raymond Forrest Vickery is last but not least on our list of
pledges. He hopes to oern the degree of Bachelor of Arts in .ducatJon.
He attends Peabody Club, and has a good scholastic record. raymid s
hcme is in Avon Park.

VWe believe that, as a result of our Freshman Week program, the
first year men of the College of Education experienced a more pleasant
[transition from high school to college, and that they aere better
equipped to enter upon their new life as University man this year than
ever before. Alpha Lambda chapter feels justly proud to this end and

Last summer is now a part of the distant past, but we will not
soon forget the thrill of moving into a larger house, scrambling for
rooms, .and getting enough furniture at a price suited to our pocket-
books. MIr. Henry Fox, Sr. .proved very useful when it came to the
manufacture of tables and the improvisation of a shower bath. Henry
ox, the president of our chapter, scoured the town for all of the
little essentials of a well-regulated home and soon -we felt quite at
home in our house.
The summer was anything but-a dull one. Several vocalists in
the house made life pleasant for th; neighbors. ive had an initia-
tion and banquet. -everal of the members were very active in campus
politics, not without success. The daughters of several of our pro-
fessors wure so kind as to invite us to numerous parties, weinor
roasts, dances and swims. The party at Dean Norman's home was quite
a success, as to fellowship and entertainment, and as an intelligence
We had a very congenial group -.t the house and were heartily in
accord with the administration cf our devoted president, Henry Fox
We hope that next summer some of our alumni will return to Gainesville
for advanced work and will avail themselves of the opportunity to stay
at the house.

On October 22, Peabody Club set a precedent for societies of its
kind on the University of Florida campus, Upon the suggestion of
President Lovejoy, the club voted to use the money that has in the
past been spent for a page in the Seminole to purchase four awards,
one to be present:.. to a member of each class in the College of Edu-
cation for outstanding work in the club -nd on the campus as a whole.
The awards are to be given at the close of the school year. In taking
this action, Peabody Club becomes the first society on the campus to
thus recognize and award its members or students in its college for
outstanding achievements.
Gordon has been complimented by many of the deans and professors
on the campus for his action in this regard. There is no doubt but
that those awards, by recognizing true merit, will the m-n
in our college to do better work uia to strive for higher levels o0
achievrmieunt. Gordon deserves praise for his initiative.
Once again a Kappa Phi Kappian has scored.

nAong the speakers who have honored Xappa Phi Kappa xzith their
presence during the fall term of 1934 were Prof. F. M. Do Gaotani,
instructor cf Spanish at the University of Florida and Prof. D. A.
Haygccd, instructor of French and Spanish at the P. K. Ycnge Labora-
tcky School.
Prof. Haygood gave an interesting talk on his experiences in
Cuba during the trcubluous times of the Machadc regime. Last summer,
desiring to make certain comparisons between Cuban and Castilian
speech, he spent some time in Havana in the home of a cultured Cuban
family, where he had hoped to find an environment conducive to study.
But he was destined to be disillusioned, for the worthy citizen soon
assumed a loading role in the recent _oup. Imagine Prof. Haygood's
chagrin at finding himself virtually a prisoner in his residence un-
til such a time as he was able to convince the authorities of his in-
nocence. 'thile Maklig; his abode with the Cuban family, Prof. Hay-
good had ample opportunity to observe certain customs and manners with
the relation of which he delighted an audience of some twenty-five
members of the local chapter.

At a later meeting of Kappa Phi Kappa, Prof. F. IM. De Gaetani
gave an informal lecture cn the causes of the downfall of the Bour-
bons in Spain. From his studies in Spanish political history, which
he made during a stay of two years in Madrid, Prof. De Gaetani was
able to explain the overthrow of Alfonse XIII and the establishment
of the Republic as due to the general dissatisfaction of the Spanish
public with the incapable Bourbons. Tracing the history of the
reigns cf the Spanish monarchs from the days of Ferdinand and Isabel,
He pointed out instances cf tyranny, inefficiency, intrigue and im-
morality. A cruel Philip, an indolent Fefdinand,aadtraitoeguhcFerdi-
nand and an immoral Isabel wore all passed in review before an audi-
ence of some twenty members of the local chapter who derived much
merriment from the anecdotes (which Prof. De Gaetani related to illus-
trate instances of the weaknesses of the Bourbons.

Kappa Phi aappa may consider itself fortunate indeed on taking
in as members the men it did this past su;;mer. Foremost among the
summer initiates is Dr. J. Hccper Wise, the present principal of the
P. K. Yenge Laboratory School. Dr. Geigor, another initiate, is
principal of the St. Petersburg High School. Mr. Fisher, the third
on our list, is superintendent of schools in Dade County. .r. Virson
is a principal in Jacksonville. Earl Kipp teaches in Seminole High
School at Sanford. Pat Priest teaches in Anthony and takes 'ork a-
the University, from which he hopes to graduate this year. Andr.w
Rippey and KentlLittig are graduate students. William Chapman, our
only regular session undergraduate to be admitted this summer, is a
senior this year. This list includes one county superintendent,
three principals, two teachers, two graduate students, and one
senior---all leaders in the field of education.

We present for your approval our "house Mother", ex-president
Joseph Bliss James.

This business of authorizing people to spend their own money turn-
eL cut to be just as silly as it sounds.

Now that the sterling qualities of cur members have been set forth
on so many occasions, we hope that some of the school boards will at
least consider our graduating brothers when they apply for positions.

The editor wishes to state that he has strictly censored all
gossip relating to himself. Why Not?

Or does he know anything about it? Unless that is a saw mill I
hear, he isn't aware of anything that is happening.

Barnes was finally granted a long sought request, that of typing
the stencils for every page of the Torchlight. It's only 4:35-..t. yet.

Some of cur members are sc professional minded that they confined
their summer school activities to professors' daughters.

Several of our fellows in the house seem to be bridge experts--
at least they play enough to be experts.

The recent cold spell affected our members in very unusual man-

Kent Littig claims Tallahassee as his home town. He certainly
goes home more often than the rest of us.

Barnes and Barker---the "ideal" roommates.
