More Ranger commentary

From the February 1964 Texas Ranger. (Click image to enlarge.)  Lieuen Adkins was editor. The Dubious Achievement Award to Sigma Chi refers to its Derby Day. For this charity fundraiser, the fraternity announced that all sororities would compete in events, including acquiring derby hats the Sigma Chis wore on campus. A black sorority member took them at their word and snatched a few hats, and an altercation occurred. Next year, the Sigma Chis announced that “selected sororities” would participate.
