THE IOTATAU KAPPA HAS
GREAT OUTING PLANNEO
BETA OiniCRON BETA TO
The I. T. K. summer camp is going to
be held at White Lake this summer.
From the latest report it is going to be
one of the best camps that they have
ever had. It convenes August 20 and
lasts through to the 30th.
Tliis meeting is being looked forward
to with great interest. There the old
and new members can meet and have
one grand and glorious get-to-gether.
There will be swimming, boating (in
the moonlight), fishing and all the out-
White Lake, N. C., is one of the most
popular summer reso'rts in North Caro
lina. It has the most wonderful beach
in the South. The sand is white as
snow, and the bottom can be seen at
most any depth in the lake. The
cabins are admirably situated along
the water front, snugly nestled in
amongst the beautiful green foliage.

ALPHA PI DELTA PLANS
Alpha Pi Delta, the youngest frat
ernity on the “hill,” was organized
and recognized by the faculty on
March 19, 1925. There were ten
charter members but since that time
the membership has been much increas
ed by the addition of several of the
most outstanding students who' have
achieved distinction in literary work,
in college activities, and in athletics.
The organization is doing much in pro
moting scholarship and fellowship in
the Elon student body.
Plans are now practically complete
for a week's camping trip for the Alpha
Pi Delta boys. This camp will be held
from August 29 to September 3. Head
quarters for the -camping party will
be Hook’s cabin on the banks of the
Capon Eiver in the West Virginia
mountains. This place is easy to reach
by motor, being only 23 miles from
Winchester, Virginia, and yet it is
secluded enough for an ideal camping

THE KAPPA PSI NO PLAN
TREIR INITIAL DOTING
For the first time in the history of
the Kappa Psi Nu a camping trip has
been planned. The plans call for the
week of August 21-28 to be spent at
Minnesatt Beach, Araphahoe, N. C. It
is expected that at least thirty of the
fraternity boys will be present to en
joy this camping trip and forget the
troubles that have been pursuing them
during the summer.
Needless to say that this will be a
happy meeting. Some have not seen
cach other for four or five years. How
ever, the majority of those who attend
will be the students of last year. The
boys plan to meet at Elon Sunday
morning; however, some will spend
Saturday night, and from there they
will journey to Minnesatt Beach. This
beach is located between New Bern
and Morehead City. At the spot
which the camp is to be, Neuse
River is five miles wide. The
scenery is beautiful and fishing
