Brother Stanley Webb III passed-away in May 2012, from a long battle with cancer.
Stanley was a lifelong resident of Odem, Texas. He was a successful farmer & developer in the Odem area.
A few years ago, Stanley’s name was on the “Lost Brothers” list. Since I was from Odem and knew Stanley, I reported his address and phone number. He was also on “Facebook”. Believe he was initiated in the early sixties… 1962 or 1963. I graduated in 1961, and he was a few years behind me.
His Obituary was in the “Odem-Edroy Times”, back in May.
I do not have all his information. I know he left a wife & children & grandchildren. I did not have a contact for ATO-ZM, until I received an email yesterday (8-5-2012). Please add Stanley’s name to your “Chapter Eternal’“ list.
I am not easily fooled…I usually can sniff out a plot when it is underway, but this time you caught me completely unawares…I was blown away with the recognition and generosity shown to me at the reunion…the shotguns have been a wish of mine, since the old heirloom family 16 ga. Model 12 was burned up while I was at Sam…Duffer’s buffalo painting will occupy a prominent place in my office, and the Little Bird caricature statue was just off the charts…INCREDIBLE!

I recently stumbled across an online copy of ATO Thomas Arkle Clark’s book The Fraternity and The College. The book is a collection of essays and papers written by Clark on the topic of Fraternity Problems. I’ve only had time to skim a few pages, but, I wouldn’t be surprised if Clark’s 1917 text provides a few insights for today’s men.
I also found a TIME magzine article from 1931 which illustrates a side of Thomas Arkle Clark which was never covered in my propylon. Enjoy.

In the aftermath of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden’s death, new debates have emerged.
“What happens next for the ‘War on Terror?’”
”Americans understand the costs of war,” President Barack Obama said in a press conference Sunday night. “Yet, as a country, we will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed.”
“On nights like this one, we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to al-Qaida’s terror: Justice has been done.”
However, bin Laden’s death does not mark the end of the U.S. effort.
“There’s no doubt that al-Qaida will continue to pursue attacks against us,” Obama said. “We must, and will remain vigilant at home and abroad.”

A.W Randle posts the following: Fellow Dons & ATOs….. A bit of sad news to report this evening. Charlie Hodges’ brother, Pat Hodges (who was an ATO), passed away about 7:47 PM on Saturday, January 29. Pat and Charlie lived next door to each other down in Sandia, Texas (which is close to Corpus). Charlie had told me earlier that Pat would be buried there in the Sandia area.
