Description
27 page booklet containing the constitution revised at the 11th Biennial Convention in 1936. The publication is bound in tan covers with darker brown titling. The inside pages are of similar material and show only minor signs of deterioration or wear. The opening pages contain the list of Pi Kappa Delta National Council officers of the 1936 National Convention. S.R. Toussaint of Monmouth College of Monmouth, Illinois is listed as President. The constitution is different from later versions in the PKD collection because it only consists of 11 articles, missing is article 12, 'Emergency.' The booklet is helpful because on page 23 it lists the rules and regulations that have been adopted at national conventions to that date and appended to the constitution. There are 7 of these listed. Most of these involve payment of dues and chapter fees, however, rule #6 explains the criteria for winning by forfeit. Those winning in this manner can be inducted into PKD only if "...the team must have actually been on the platform ready to debate and the judges had written a judgement in their favor." Rule 7 concerns the election of a "parliamentarian" at each national convention to help the president with the business meetings. On page 24 is printed the resolutions adopted at the 5th National Convention (1924). There are four of these. The last two contain the resolve that chapters must enter at least one contestant in each convention contest and preparation for this "...to be held up as the ideal chapter program." The back pages contain an offer for the book; "Winning Debates, Orations and Speeches Vol. I-VI" offering "speeches that won the National Conventions since 1926." This is followed by a detailed index. The back cover is advertisement for Pi Kappa Delta official Jeweler, L. G. Balfour, Attleboro, MA.
