“Members vs. Men” (excerpt)
“The value of our Fraternity is not in numbers, but in men, in real brotherhood. Eight men thoroughly immersed in the true Omega spirit are far greater assets than eighty with lukewarm enthusiasm.’
“Do thy duty that is best, leave unto the Lord the rest.”
Bro. Walter H. Mazyck | OMEGA Chapter
