FRATERNITY SONG "HAIL FRATERNITY"

HAIL FRATERNITY,
WE'LL EVER SING OUR PRAISE TO THEE,
WE LOVE THY COLORS TRUE,
WE LOVE THY BROTHERS TOO,
YOU'RE THE EMBLEM OF SINCERITY.
HAIL FRATERNITY,
WE ARE PROUD OF YOUR FAME,
MAY THERE NEVER BE A STAIN,
AGAINST THY DEAR OLD NAME,
SIGMA PHI EPSILON! HEY!

Submitter comment: SIMILAR TO THE OTHER SONGS, LOVE AND LOYALTY TO THE
BROTHERHOOD IS EXEMPLIFIED HERE. THE SONG IS SUNG WITH
A FAST MELODY, USUALLY SUNG AT NATIONAL MEETINGS. IT
IS RECOGNIZED THROUGHOUT THE NATION AS ONE OF THE
MOST PRIZED SONGS IN SIGMA PHI EPSILON.
I FIRST HEARD THIS SONG AT BOWLING GREEN STATE
UNIVERSITY, IN FEBRUARY, 1978, AT THE SIGMA
PHI EPSILON NATIONAL MEETING.

A DATA PROCESSING STUDENT TOOK A FRIEND TO THE COMPUTER CENTER
WITH HIM. THE FRIEND WAS QUITE INTERESTED IN THE MACHINE AND
ALL THE BUTTONS AND LIGHTS. HE SAW A LARGE RED KNOB AND ASKED,
"WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I PULL THIS?" AS HE PROCEEDED TO PULL IT.
THE RED KNOB WAS THE EMERGENCY SWITCH ON THE MACHINE, AND
HIS PULLING THE KNOB RESULTED IN THE DISCONNECTION OF MOST
OF THE INTERNAL WIRING OF THE COMPUTER.

RITA MILLER, A STUDENT AT WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY, WAS HIRED
TO ENTER SOME PAPERS FOR A SEMINAR INTO THE COMPUTER VIA THE
ADMINISTRATIVE TERMINAL SYSTEM (ATS). THE PAPERS WOULD THEN BE
RETYPED ON ATS IN A STANDARD FORMAT WITH NO ERRORS. AS WAS
THE PREVAILING STYLE, RITA'S HAIR WAS QUITE LONG. SHE BENT
OVER ONE OF THE ATS TYPEWRITER TERMINALS WHICH WAS BEING USED
TO OUTPUT A PREVIOUSLY ENTERED PAPER, AND HER HAIR GOT CAUGHT
IN THE MACHINE. THE TYPEWRITER CONTINUED TYPING UNTIL SOME-
ONE HAD THE PRESENCE OF MIND TO SHUT IT OFF. BY THAT TIME,
RITA'S HAIR WAS COMPLETELY WRAPPED AROUND THE ROD WHICH HOLDS
THE TYPE ELEMENT, AND RITA'S CHEEK WAS NEARLY RESTING ON THE
COVER OF THE TYPEWRITER. ALL ATTEMPTS TO FREE HER BY THE
PERSONNEL IN THE OFFICE FAILED, AND IT BEGAN TO LOOK AS THOUGH
HER HAIR WOULD HAVE TO BE CUT. HOWEVER, A CALL TO THE IBM
CUSTOMER ENGINEER (WHO LATER SAID IT WAS THE MOST INTERESTING
CALL HE HAD EVER RECEIVED!), RESULTED IN A DISMANTLING OF
THE MACHINE AND IN FREEING RITA FROM HER TEMPORARY BONDAGE.
RITA NOW HAS SHORT HAIR.

Submitter comment: THIS EVENT OCCURRED IN THE SUMMER OF 1971.
