PhiBeta Kappa
Retains Strict
Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest of all
Greek letter secret societies, was or-
ganized at the college of William
and Mary on December 6, 1776. The
belief of the founders that a know-
ledge of the basic laws which govern
the universe is necessary to good
living Was reflected both in their
motto and in the character of their
meetings. These were in great part
given over to a discussion of the
problems which affect humanity.
The Michigan Chapter was found-
ed in 1907. Keeping in mind the pur-
pose of the Society, the recognition
and encouragement of scholarship
and cultural interests, the student
Elections Committee makes a care-
ful study of the entire University
record of each possible candidate
'with a view to determining as far as
is humanly possible the student's
standing both scholastically and as
a citizen. The standards set are high
and the relatively. small numbers
elected each year bears witness to the
care with which they are observed.
Since Phi Beta Kappa has been, from
the beginning, an organization which
functioned in the field defined by the
old cultural college course, elections
are restricted to Juniors and Seniors
of the College of Literature, Science
and the Arts, Seniors in the School of
Education and to candidates for ad-
vanced degrees in the Graduate
School, who meet the extremely
rigid requirements.

Tau Sigma Delta is an international
honorary fraternity in architecture

that architecture is much more than
a technical profession led to the or-
ganization of Alpha chapter of Tau
