description:

Two father and sons, the Beals and the Hiners, were inducted into the fraternity at the same time. Louis Hiner had actually been inducted earlier but his father couldn't make that ceremony. Hiner's father was the editor of the Rushville Republican. Charles Beal (Sr.) was editor of the LaPorte Herald-Argus and a member of the editorial board for the Alumni Magazine. Louis Hiner was unable to attend this ceremony as he was called into active duty.
