Sig Ep Journal 1963
Carlos Williams in selecting the 1963 All-Sig Ep Football team, continues the sports writing task for the Journal which he began last year when he named the 1962 All-Sig Ep Football Eleven and wrote the story. At that time he was a junior at N.C. State College and sports editor of the Technician , State’s student newspaper. Now a senior, he is president of the Sig Ep chapter, a responsible post which gives him less time for campus activities. He led his pledge class as president, also, and upon initiation took on such duties as Rush chairman, summer house manager, and pledge-trainer. A trombonist with State’s Symphonic Band, he also served as business manager of the Band, was active in the Young Democrat Club and Student Government. He is presently in the officer candidate program of the U.S. Naval Reserve.
