From the 1957 Lucky Bag:

THOMAS ALLEN EADES

Dallas, Texas

Allen came to us after two years of the gay happy life at the University of Texas. Forced to leave the cars, wine, women, and other advantages of fraternity life behind, he did bring his megaphone, and spent the next four years leading cheers for the "Blue and Gold." Al's presence in his room was always assured when the sound of "Rhythm and Blues" records spilled out into the passageway. His love of the traditional Mid's castle, his rack, was disturbed by a small problem with academics, finally overcome by determined studying. This Texan's wit and easy manner have helped to make our four years pleasant ones.
