      Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc.                                          As Regent of our Fraternity, alumni often ask me about the future

                                          Advisor to Division Commander to my current position as your 54th Regent, has been one of
                                          the most rewarding experiences of my life. It has afforded me the chance to give back to an

                                          When it comes to the question about our future, my answer is simple, "It will be as bright as we

                                          for the future?" I want you to know that my first order of business as your Regent was to

the campus of Arizona State University, and an alumni
reception, including alumni from the greater Phoenix
area. And, of course, the Grand Chapter was highlighted
by a closing banquet and awards program.

The Grand Chapter kicked off with a Sigma Nu visit to
Bank One Ballpark, to see the Arizona Diamondbacks take
on the Montreal Expos. This game was more special when
GREG SWINDELL (Υ, TEXAS) was called on to pitch for the
Diamondbacks. Not only was Brother Swindell pitching
for the home team, he was cheered on by 300 enthusiastic
Sigma Nus!

 Gary L. Christy:
 Good Wyoming Stock: The Legacy of Joe and Arlene Watt

      The Sigma Nu Educational Foundation has received a copy of the book Good
 Wyoming Stock, a biography of Joe Watt (Ε∆, Wyoming) and his wife Arlene. The
 author, Gary L. Christy, although not a Sigma Nu, is a nephew of Arlene Watt.
      The book is a saga of families coming west, of homesteaders, farmers and
 ranchers. The central story is about a couple who started with five cows and a
 homestead and built a major ranch and cattle business. Together they made their
 lives and the lives of many others in their beloved state of Wyoming into some-
 thing worthwhile.
                                                                                       Joe Watt, right, shares a fraternal moment with his fraternity

 Triangle T ranch near Moorcroft. After attending the University of Wyoming with
 the class of 1928, he returned to the homestead with his wife to supervise the
 growth of his ranch. At the same time he became director of the Teton National
 Insurance Company and president of the National Bank of Newcastle. In addi-
 tion, he was appointed by then Governor Clifford Hansen (Ε∆, Wyoming) as a
 trustee of the University of Wyoming, serving terms as president and as treasurer
 of the Trustees. He and his family have been generous longtime contributors to his
 community and to the University, particularly to benefit the school of agriculture.
 His most recent philanthropic project includes the creation of a livestock arena
 and teaching center named in memory of Cliff and Martha Hansen’s daughter.
      In 1966 Brother Watt was named to the Board of Directors of the National
 Cowboy Hall of Fame, and the following year he was initiated by the Epsilon
