Letter from the Editor...
BY A J LOPEZ III               Last night we initi-
EDITOR-IN-CHIEF            ated seven new guys
                           into the bond we all
call Lambda Chi Alpha. For these new guys, it
has been a wonderful experience to know them.
    Also, we had elections and we now have new
officers. I will be taking over the High Rho
office. For all of you who are rusty on your
Lambda Chi Alpha knowledge, it is the Alumni
Secretary for the fraternity. I will be wanting to
meet with all the Alumni I have met and give
them a deeper understanding of where the chap-
ter is going and also want to learn and meet the
Alumni I have not met.
    I will be revamping this office and imple-
menting programs through it. I hope that the
Alumni of the Beta-Alpha chapter will please
assist me in this effort to rekindle lost contacts
from the fraternity.
    On behalf of the Beta-Alpha Zeta I wish you
and your families a very Merry Christmas!
