The Oracle (April 1928)


Since the return of our good Basileus Brother Wilson from that memorable meeting of Omega men in Manhattan, Psi Chapter has continued on the line of action that is for the highest of Omega. Brother Wilson’s report of the Conclave was indeed an inspiration, causing the Chapter in its entirety to work zealously for the further development of our organization and hence for the betterment of the people we touch.

Bros. Bridges, O. Beverly, B. Beverly, “Pee Wee” Sampson, Moses Adair and Bealyer, alias the “Bishop”, remain in the vanguard of the intelligentsia of this college community, the last named Brother, aside from being a splendid student, is a modern Ananias—very capable.  Brother Butler represents the Chapter on the forensic platform perpetuating the tradition and heritage handed down by former Psi Chapter men. Brother Wheeler along with Bro. Bill Williams, “Job” Moseley and Harry Apples are outstanding members of the Glee Club and Orchestra. These Brothers have just returned from a concert tour of the land of sunshine and flowers and erstwhile land boom. The good Brother Dick Bell is with us again after an extensive eastern tour in the official capacity of manager of the Basketball Team. He has now resumed his old form of occupation—that of giving the ladies a treat. Bro. Max Griffin has been pointed out to me by many of the fair ones as being—”ready.” Brother Samuel Nabrit, former Psi Chapter man, was recently elected to membership in Sigma Xi honorary fraternity at Brown University. Brother Nabrit was instructor of Biological Science at Morehouse College but obtained a leave of absence at the termination of last school year and is working for his Master’s degree at Brown University. The University has offered him a fellowship to pursue further study at Brown to obtain his Doctor’s degree.

Despite rain which is quite a factor in this town in determining the success of a dance or a function—because these folks are a bit timid about allowing their daughters to wander in the rain—not that they are all that sweek—the Matinee Dance given by the Chapter on Saturday afternoon, March 10, was indeed a success. The music was exceptionally good, the decoration of the hall was the quintessence of perfection. Let us give Bros. Sampson, Bell and Wilson a hand, for they were instrumental in making the dance a memorable occasion to be cherished by the charming debutantes present. 

We are on the eve of the third Inter-Fraternity Basketball Tournament. When the smoke of battle had cleared away in the first years’ play the aggregate chapter of Omega in Atlanta emerged victorious. Last year we placed second, this year we intend to emerge from the Shadow of second place at 8:30 P.M. on St. Patrick’s Day.

Yours in Omega,


Chapter Editor.
