On the central quad of the Morehouse College campus lays The Plot, a memorial stone created circa 1966 by the Mean 16 to honor the establishment of Ψ.
The individuals most responsible for creating The Plot were Phil McCall (Basileus) Ernest Jolly (Keeper of Records and Seals) Michael Troutman (Dean of Pledges) and Ray Leaphart (Keeper of Finance). These four men designed the stone, contracted the headstone company, handled the payments, and selected The Plot’s original location in front of the old fraternity houses at Quarrels Court.
The Plot was placed in storage for several years after the houses at Quarrels Court were taken down. Brother Richard Mason (9 Ψ 1989) shared his memory of how The Plot was recovered from its nethermost location and relocated to the Morehouse quad:
In the fall of 1989, Robert Drummer (7 Ψ 1985) visited the neos on the yard. After a few hours of talking about frat history while drinking, Drummer suggested we continue fraternizing at The Plot, but since it was not on the yard he commanded us to “Go get our Plot!” from storage in the old maintenance building. Brother Drummer, myself, Nip, Box, and two other brothers walked over to the maintenance building where we saw The Plot laying on the back room floor. When Drummer saw this he said, “Get our Plot off the floor!” We told the maintenance worker that we needed to move The Plot, and when he offered no assistance, we realized we had to move it ourselves. Drummer told us that we could lift up The Plot up because “we were Ψ.” So, no rib, we lifted it up despite the obvious difficulty and placed it on the back of Nip’s truck.
Some say this is how the tradition of rolling paraphernalia was started. Others say its our chapter’s greatest moment in uplift.
