TranscriptAlpha Phi Alpha
To Organize Here
In January, 1934

A new national fraternity will probably appear on this campus in January when Alpha Phi Alpha, national colored organization, is expected to install a chaper here. A colored local fraternity, Alpha Phi Eta is petitioning Alpha Phi Alpha and it is expected that it will be accepted for membership when the national organization has its meeting in December.
Alpha Phi Alpha is a prominent organization in the colored fraternity world. It was organized in 1906 at Cornell University and since has placed chapters in many parts of the United States. In this state this fraternity has units at the University of Illinois, Chicago University, and Northwestern University.
The local colored fraternity, Alpha Phi Eta was founded by seven students in the Spring of 1933. At the present time it has nineteen members. The organization does not yet possess a chapter house, but plans are being made for the probable occupation of a home in the forthcoming Spring term. Alpha Phi Eta is planning to enter a team in the intra-mural basketball league this winter. In the realm of social affairs the membership is arranging a Christmas dance to be held during the holiday season.
The current officers of Alpha Phi Eta are, Ruges Freeman, president; Elijah Langford, vice-president; Jack Bell, secretary; Jack Taylor, treasurer; Ora Polk, business manager; Rodney Higgins and Theodore Taylor, ex-officio officers.
