Transcript Service Alpha Phi Omega The members of Alpha Phi Omega pledge their service to the campus, to the community, and to the nation. They are 85 in number and in the year 1958-59 they have donated 12,292 man hours to projects of service. With each member giving an average of 491.6 man hours of his time, the organization has aided 34 separate causes. University functions aided by APO includes the transportation and care of Shasta. 1 Diversity Cougar mascot, officiating at student election polls, sponsorship of the Fourth Annual Greek Songfest, sponsorship of the Shasta Art Contest, maintenance of the information booth at fall and spring registration, and the coordinating and building of the Homecoming Bonfire. In addition to performing services to the University, APO has hosted the Faith Home children to a day at the circus and the residents of St. Anthony's Old Folks Home to a Thanksgiving dinner. Members have collected funds for the Muscular Dystrophy and March of Dimes campaigns as well as helping with the Boy Scout Exposition and ushering at the City Employees Service Award program. For such outstanding service lo the school and community, it is no wonder that this organization won the Cougar Spirit Award for 1958-59. Members George Shackelford, Gerald Grim, Jerry Bennett, Jack Wilson and Richard Lassetter admire recent additions to trophy APOs, wives, and dates enjoy an evening out. They are Jo Lynn Grasse, Sonny Elsik, Jack Wilson, Wendell and Alice Banigan, and Marilyn Miller. Ken Kern, Barry Bennick, Frank Markey, and Steve Allen unload lumber for the '59 Bayou Queen. All the work proved worthwhile, as their Fiesta show won first place. OFFICERS: George Shackelford, treasurer; Gerald Grim, recording secretary; Jerry Bennett, first vice-president; Jack Wilson, president; and Richard Lassetter, chaplain. 336
