     Brothers, as many of you know,
Oregon Beta has been facing difficulties
with low membership for many years.
While I can not report that we have
overcome this, I can tell you that we have
a great group of young men who are
moving in the right direction. I am proud
of what they have accomplished in the
past year. They have, of course, been
striving to increase our membership
through formal and informal recruitment,
and while doing so, they have continued
to do the things that make Phi Kapa Psi
a fraternity of gentlemen and scholars.
