RECORDS SHOW AL~
Editor's Note: This is the thirtieth
of a series of feature articles on
campus institutions intended to develop
their history and maior principles of
organizations and marnagement.
Contrary to the opinion expressed
in some quarters, the oldest organiza-
tion on the campus is Alpha Nu.
This debating society is not only the
oldest forensic club at this Univers-
ity, but- also in the middle West.
Alpha Nu was founded in 1843 by
a small group of forensicly inclined
young men who decided that the pub-
lic speaking society in which they
were then members was not suitable
for their oratorical expression.
Therefore, they broke away from Phi
Phi Alpha, the first forensic society
in Michigan (which disbanded in
1846), and founded what is now
known as Alpha Nu.
In the first years of its existence
Alpha Nu divided its interests be-
tween forensic and literary activities.
The members even published a lit-
erary magazine, called the "Sybil",
which was' read before the weekly
meetings of the organization. All
members contributed to its contents.
The first article to be printed in the
"Sybil" was entitled "Mind IS Man."
The discussions which took place
at the first sessions of Alpha Nu
were of considerable profundity,
PHA NU OLDEST
I "Resolved that Caesar was greater
than his father," and "'Resolved that
the Crusades were beneficial." At
one of the meetings of Alpha Nu this
spring the proposition debated was
"Resolved that the Mencken school of
thought should be condemned."
In the early years Alpha Nu intro-
duced women members into the or-
ganization. With women came mus-
ical entertainment. All they lacked
was wine to fulfill the old slogan
"wine, women and song." However,
both of these distractions were soon
eliminated, and today the society is
composed of forty active mem'bers.
For many years, until the construe-
tion of Angell hall, Alpha Nu occupiedf
a room on the fourth floor of Uni-
versity hall. Here the weekly ses-
sions were often interrupted by activ-
ities of the rats, who had no respect
for even the most fluent and silver-
tongued members. Because. of its
services to the University the society
was given a roone on the fourth floor
of Angell hall in which to carry on
In 1922 Alpha Nu helped to found
a national literary and debating so-
ciety known as Kappa Phi Sigma.
This national organization now has
nine chapters in the middle West.
During last December the annual
convention of Kappa Phi Sigma was
Representative in this country of her
father, the builder of the Bremen, who
is helping with the relief operations
for the transatlantic fliers. One of
the fliers, "Duke" Schiller, 'said yes-
terday, concerning future plans, "the
Bremen hasn't reached New York yet,
and until we take her there our trip
is not over."
Miss Junkers set out in the sister
ship of the Bremen flying in the gen-
eral direction of Greenly island, caus-
ing a great deal of mystery as to her
destination. She landed yesterday,
however, at Lake St. Agnes, Quebec,
in time to greet Fitzmaurice and

neentous questions were debated as dent.
