AEPi Honored.
At the Alpha Epsilon Pi National Convention in the summer, Clarkson's
Kappa Gamma chapter was singled out as the winner of the fraternity's Louis Sherr Memorial
Outstanding Chapter Award. Each of the chapters competed for this recognition of the greatest
degree of excellence in overall chapter activity. Included in consideration for this award were
scholastic achievement, rushing and pledging, community service, and other facets of fraternity
Clarkson's chapter stood in the top half of all fraternities in both academics and
athletics, and strongly in its commitment to community service. It placed first in the United
Fund Drive (Ugly Man on Campus), placed high in the blood drive, and had the largest number
of fraternity skaters at the roller skating fund drive for Muscular Dystrophy at Walker Arena.
Pease on TV.
On Friday, August 4, psychology professor Victor Pease was featured on a TV
talk show on CBS-TV in a seminar on the management of stress held by the School of

anxiety. Executives from such major corporations as Corning Glass, US Steel, Niagara
Mohawk, and IBM have attended these seminars.

women. Four engineering students, Kay Bonney, Linda Grace, Lise Scheuch, and Tracy

section's achievement, and awards totaling $400 from Union Carbide.
