After Twenty Years Three Become Theta Chis
After a wait of more than twenty years Omega Chapter has initiated three members of the local fraternity which preceded Omega chapter: Charles P. Mills and Alfred R. Bechtel of Philadelphia. Pa., and Carl A. Battle of Wilmington. Del. all of the 1916 Class of the Pennsylvania State College. At the time of the installation of Omega Chapter in 1919, it was not possible for these men to be initiated, and for one reason or another they were never made members of Theta Chi in the ensuing years.
The special initiation for these three alumni was held September 21, in the chapter room of Kappa Chapter, Philadelphia. Initiation was conducted by George W. Chapman, national marshall, and Norman C. Horner. a member of the National Board of Trustees, both alumni of Omega Chapter, assisted by a number of Omega alumni who had been in college with the initiates.
Omega ranks 22nd in scholarship ing Penn State’s fifty housing units.
