â&#x20AC;˘ ON many campuses each fall college presidents welcoming fre hmen, stress the rich heritage of the college; note the sentiment associated with the halls wherein they will attend classes; point to the scholastic standards to be upheld ; emphasize

ordinary dwelling. Neither did they think only of the immediate delight which it would bring them. The ideals of our Founders which governed that original survey fifty-six years ago-those same ideals were paramount when the model of our organization was drawn-and again as stone was laid upon stone it was the high purposes of the builders that gave the finished product assurance of durability, a sense of loveliness, and an inescapable feeling of richness and pleasantness. Our Founders anticipated growth and the need for expansion. Years have made their foundation stronger and more powerful. Additions to the building have served to strengthen the meaning, the purpose, and the usefulness of the building.

the need of respect for the achievements of the past, while underscoring the challenge facing each student in the future. Similarly, to those who have become associated with our sorority, I should like ~o stress the solid foundation our five Founders put into the building of. ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA. Like all good builders they considered durability and ordinary usefulness. However, they went further for they wondered what was to be the meaning of this building? What was its ultimate purpose? Ruskin issued a challenge to all builders when he said: "Therefore, when we build, let us think tha.t we build forever. Let it not be for the present delight nor for present use alone, let it be uch work as our descendants will thank us for." Our Founders built for us an organization which has been durable, lovely, rich, and full of pleasantness. The model they drew catered to the rounded development of all who cross the threshold. They did not survey the plot visualizing an


To each person who enters this edifice comes the opportunity to add to it. For a time we live within this building-absorbing its goodness, reveling in its atmosphere of lofty ideals. How long we may actually live within the structure is not the all important question-but rather what do we leave? What have we added to the building? Whether we work from within or without each of us has a responsibility to the Founders of our Organization. First, to be worthy of the organization so lovingly constructed; to live up to the ideals they set; to cultivate poise and personality; to be respected for personal character, cultun~, and charm. Our second responsibility? We must carry on. Each of us has a contribution to make-each must add a stone to the structure so firmly founded. E. A. Robinson's poem about young King Tristam might well be a guide to all of you who have pledged Alpha Signa Alpha:

((Many by chance are crowned As kings that are born rather to be tinkers, Or farmers, or philosophers, or farriers Or barbers, or almost anything under God Than to be kings. Whether you will or not, You are a king, Trist&m, for you are one 0 f the time-sifted few that leave the world, When they are gone, not the same place it was, Mark what you leave." EVELYN

In 1957, the college girls are no different for they still save souvenirs. However, the bulletin board has replaced the mirror and the walls for displaying them.

Jean Baldwin McCammon

â&#x20AC;˘ JEAN BALDWIN McCAMMON (Mrs. Bert C.) XX ha won the important Wilma Wil on Sharp alumnae award for 1957. Proficient as they are in doing so, the editors of Time magazine would have a difficult time portraying Jean's personality and achievements in mere words on paper. To paint Jean's warm nature, love of people, and inten e desire to serve others, an artist would need a giant palette and a multitude of brushes. A detailed account of interest in various church, educational, and civic organizations would fill a volume. Born and reared in a small Quaker community, Jea n lived in Indiana throughout her childhood, college and married life. Her schools are Blaker's, now T eachers College of Indianapolis; Butler Univer ity and Indiana University, with graduate work in Columbia University. She started her teaching career in a rural school to which she drove a two-cylinder Dodge through mud and now, firing the school stove and instructing all eight grades. Later, she taught a number of years in public chools, and sold her first story for children in 1941, Children's A ctivities. Jean and Bert McCammon were married about thirty years ago, a nd their congenial partnership wa broken when Bert died uddenly October 9, 1956 while playing his fa orite game of bridge. Bert wa graduated from Valparaiso Univer ity and India na chool of Pharmacy with graduate work at Butler nive r it and Columbia Univerity. fter hi retirement from the retail drug bu ine in Indian apoli , he sat in the Indiana Hou of Repre entative and wa active in all r rc group which help to make a community better. 6

The McCammons for many years conducted a school of effective speech, salesmanship, and human relations. Jean served on the Mayor's Committee on Recreation in Indianapolis for ten years, and for many years served on the Marion County Juvenile Court Advisory Committee. Her lecture, "Your Child and My Child," was given by Jean before school and civic groups in Indiana over 400 times in one year. She was author of a juvenile protection study course which was adopted and used by the Indiana Congress of Parents and Teachers, and co-authored "Sitting Pretty," a baby-sitters manual distributed by the State of Indiana to child care and home management classes. Among the many activities in which she participated, Jean was chairman of the Women's Division of the Marion County Infantile Paralysis campaign; chairman of Scholastic Art Exhibit for the State of Indiana ; was the only woman for many years on the Christmas Committee Around the Indianapolis Monument which is now a holiday tradition ; served on the original Board for the Marion County Child Guidance Clinic; and was superintendent of the Junior Department at Meridian Heights Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis. Florida was chosen by the McCammons as their 'other home," and Jean became interested in the Civic Music groups in Fort Lauderdale, as she had been in Indianapolis. She organized an AlA alumnae group in Miami, and the Fort Lauderdale Panhellenic found Jean an interested participan t. pon returning from a trip to South merica by freighter Jean and Bert took two ears ago J ean gave the first of a series of talks


on their travel befor that group . She has erved the Panhcllenic a devotions chairman and is now th cholar hip chairman, working on the chol arship budget for the coming year. H er loya lty and interest in Alpha Sigma Alpha ha been steadfast since the day she was pledged. As he ha expressed it : " I have a philosophy of the responsibility of belonging to anything. Wherever I am, I want to do something constructive about sorority ideals, so I always find myself in a Panhellenic group." During the years she was a member of the national council of Alpha Sigma Alpha, in the office of Registrar, Jean coordinated rushing plans and suggestions, and presented a rush booklet to the 1955 convention. Bert, Jr. ~X and Richard <I>~0 , sons of J ean and Bert McCammon, are in Indiana University, and to be near them and their families, Jean has an apartment in Bloomington, with plans to live part of the year in Fort Lauderdale. Bert, Jr., received his Ph.D. in June, and is teaching retailing classes in the school of business. Dick is a Ph.D. candipate in geology and an assistant in the geology department at Indiana University, having received a BS degree from MIT and an MA from the University of Michigan. The Dick McCammon's baby daughter, Catherine Ann, is her ~rand­ mother's darling. Jean's theme "Service to others is the only way of life" is her yardstick for happiness. She was in Bloomington only a short while until she found need for volunteer work in her church, and for two weeks she had 54 girls in a Girl Scout dramatics program. Jean will return to Florida to be honored at a dinner given by the Alpha Sigmas, and to fill a schedule of lecturing on The United Nations.

How you say and do is just as important as you say and do. 6. Don't be afraid to admit you are wrong. 7. Always keep a sense of humor.

After the presentation, Mr. Harvey S. Jacobs, field representative of the hospital, took the group on a tour of the hospital. After the tour, as one of the members of the presentation committee expressed, "our reward is not from the recognition we might have received, but from the personal gratification of seeing the many wonderfu l children whom we were able to help in our small way." The girls earn the money for this annual gift by hiring themselves out as workers for a day in homes, baby sitting, gifts of money instead of exchanging Christmas gifts and the proceeds from a Sock Hop which receives the support of all campus organizations.

Pwitetje OF THE PASSPORT R elease from the NPC Citizenship Committee

• IT is not trite to note that the world is daily getting maller-that contact between many kinds of peoples more inevitable and challenging-and the impacts of new impressions and relationships more influential in coloring international understan ding. Armed with their precious passports, more a nd more American are now travelling abroad, and, equally accredited, an increasing number of Europeans and Asiatics are finding their ways about the world. The high speed airliner has banished the barriers of time and distance. In this interchange of many kinds of peoples, their eyes are opened for the similarities between themselves, rather than the differences ; and they look to appraise the high periods of other cultures rather than the less productive ones. The authority by which we enjoy the privilege of foreign travel i the p assport. It is a treasured document. It is secured not too easily and only upon proof of certain elements of loyal citizenship. It must be displayed at every international boundary, and the rapidity with which it serves its purpose speaks eloquently of a background of trust and cooperative good will between the nations concerned. Its possession is not a right to which one is necessarily entitled, but a privilege to be honored and earned. It presupposes a basic knowledge of our form of government and an

understanding of our country's history. It presupposes that each bearer will con ider himself an informal ambassador whose responsibility is to reflect the best there is in America and America n and to create a better understanding of America s character. Travellers from all other countries carry the passports issued by their respective government . Surely, there must be implied for them similar responsibility for each to leave in his wake greater respect for, and understanding of, the country he represents. This charge is not a superficial one. It i a very real challenge. It presupposes a knowledge of the country's political and economic history, based on study and research; an understanding of the direction of its current activities; and also the acceptance of an individual role of responsible participation in the privileges of citizenship. To any passport-holder this is an " active" challenge, for to default would be to leave a negative reflection of the calibre of one's country. One needs not only to gird oneself with the necessary knowledge, but must cultivate the quality of personal relationships which will make his information respected. The privilege of our American Passport has many facets. Used responsibly, it will reflect the light of America's freedom _and the wonderful worth of her way of life.

The Adams met and married in Rio when John was a CBS correspondent. They traveled 1,400 mile up the Sao Franci co River in Brazil, on a 50-year old stern-wheeler, for their honeymoon trip. Alvadee lectured and wrote on her Latin American travels while J ohn was reporting the final year of the Pacific war for CBS. In 1946, they flew to Argentina to report the first Peron election, and then returned to Washington, D. C., where they have maintained their home. Alvadee and John have been engaged in public relations work, specializing in the international field, and free lance writing, as well as traveling exten ively with their daughters, Alice 11 and Abigail 9. In 1952, the Adams family toured Europe, and in 1953, they visited Pakistan, exploring the .interior of this A ian nation, and touring over much of A ia and the Pacific. . S. Lady was a bi-monthly publication until the eptember, 1957, issue which initiated a monthly chedule with the exception of the Midummer i ue combining July and August. The magazine publishes article to assist service £amilie with problems of adju tment, how to shop in land where the language is foreign; to meet


friends where social customs are strange; and to help children of service famili es adjust to n ew school and frequent moves in this country and abroad. Each month, a service base is featured in U.

familie , down to the cost of domestic help. In her position as editor of this uniqu e publication, Alvadee still travels widely, for example, a fl ying trip to Alaska for material on the United States bases there. The Adams' travels have taken them around the world , and they are well equ ipped to share with other families their experience in rearing a family while on the move.

Marilyn Grotzka Stahlka

Margery Grotzka Baumler

Buffalo television that bears no reference to Communism but indicates a double infiltration of sisterhood from A~A into TV in the area. M argery Grotzka Baumler and M arilyn Grotzka Stahlka, sisters in and out of Alpha Sigma Alpha, h ave been contracted by WBEN-TV, the CBS affiliate in Buffalo. The station's management became acquainted with the pair when Marilyn coordinated an educational series about four years ago . A local program need was for someone with an education background and talented in areas of creative expression to . motivate children toward summer handicraft. The series developed to creative means to avoid difficulties during troubled times for youngsters in their day. M ealtime, bedtime, shopping time, telephone, and other areas became the framework a round which funful activities were demonstrated . M arilyn Stahlka accepted the opportunity to coordinate a weekly program as part of a daily show called "Fun to Learn." Do's and Don' ts was assigned h er as a title which would introduce a program about manners and etiquette. Each week, with the use of a small group of youngsters ranging in age from seven to fourteen years, she makes






clear, p alitable and chall enging discoveries about etiquette. M argery Baumler's Sunday morning segment on the "L et's Open the D oor" show is planned to h elp the area's children find new fun in fall. Au tumn's gardening p roblems and prickers are marvelous tools for making things and doing things to delight the young set. Aware of h er age four to ten au dience, M arge tells stories, sculptures in mud, creates im aginary designs fro m construction paper, and m akes use of other materials fro m the ou tside storehouse of wonder and enchantment. These "A~A and otherwise" sisters find television a fascinating medium. It dema nds split second timing, cautious preparation, and organization of ma terial ; great demands are made for something new and the weekly requirement of something educational as well as entertaining. They agree their great concern rises from their awareness of the need of establishing themselves as personaliti es visiting in the area homes for a few minutes each week. M arilyn, 1948 graduate of State University of New York, College for T eachers at Buffalo, and M arge, a member of the class of 1953, both joined Alpha Sigma Alpha in their college sophomore year. They we re both members of Kappa D elta Pi, educational honorary. While in school Marge was treasurer of Pi Pi chapter, editor of the college yearbook, and secretary of her sophomore class. She was Pi Pi's 1948 Alpha Girl. Marilyn was president of Casting Hall, the dramatic organization, while in college. She wrote a choric drama, " T eaching T eachers to T each," for the 75th anniversary of the founding of the college, and authored the choric drama commemorating the 50th anniversary of the founding of Alpha Sigma Alpha which was presented at the 1952 National Convention. Most of the viewers who watch the sisters are unaware of their relationship for they appear on different shows. Now and then some observer will question them concerning a family resemblance or more frequ ently on inflection of voice or similarity of expression. But Alpha Sigs know of another resemblance- their mutual regard for their sorority.







• Do you like the thrill of meeting new people, and the heer adventure of visiting places and living in a strange environment among people who look at life from a different perspective? I do, and o last year I was one of the students who participated in the Junior Year Abroad Program. I chose to attend the University of St. Amdrews, St. Andrews, •Fife, Scotland, which is the oldest Scottish University. My first purchase was an academic gown of crimson wool which I discovered was to be worn to all academic functions, i.e., class, chapel, graduation, university society meetings, etc. Classes began October 15, and I found myself attending lecture in Scottish history, philosophy, and psychology. Classroom procedure was quite different from at home ; for in addition to the academic gowns worn by all students, the professor also wore a gown. Hi lectures were punctuated with stamping of feet if the class approved; if not, much shuffling of feet could be heard. The students were also expected to do a great deal of their work independently in the library. SociAL LIFE After being there a few days I began to investigate the social life of the University. I discovered many ocieties which were related to the academic fields of endeavor and also the debating society, many sports clubs, a dramatic society, and a Cosmopolitan club. The "Cosmo" club was an unu ual group a it wa composed of students from 40 countrie plus England Scotland, a nd Ireland. We had many discus ions in which we tried to understand the problems in various countries, and the di cu sion were u ually moderated by a repreentative of the country concerned. In connection with thi group, we took a wonderful trip to the Perthshire Highlands. Academic life a important as it is, was not the sole opportunity of my year abroad. I met intere ting people. They talk about the dour cot people· howe er tho e I met welcomed me to their land and adopted me a one of their own. CHRISTMAS TRIP

t Chri trnas time during the holiday, a friend


and I hitched-hiked all over the British Isles. (I must explain that hitch-hiking is quite the usual method of transportation for students; and it certainly has its advantages. It afforded an opportunity to meet people who I would never have had the opportunity to meet, to say nothing of the financial advantages.) After a thrilling week of sight-seeing and being a "tourist," we started back to our horne on the shore of the North Sea. As in all Universities exams were in the near future so I settled down to some very concentrated studying until March 12. During the five-week Easter vacation, a friend and I were off to see the Continent. Again we hitch-hiked until time grew short and we took a train so we would not have to skip some of the places we wanted to visit. LAST TERM

Again crossing the English Channel, we returned to our studies and the many activities in the world of St. Andrews. This last term was the bestfor I came to realize how very much I valued the friendships of these my St. Andrews friends. Through informal teas (and there were many of these) I carne to know, understand (in part), and appreciate their way of thinking and their perspective of life. I enjoyed their parties, their formal debates, their public lectures, their habit of afternoon teas, their wonderful sense of humor, and most of all I appreciated the way they had accepted me, an alien in their land as one of their friends. It was with mixed emotions that I left t. Andrews to return to the good old USA. I knew I would not see many of these friends again, and if I could return again, it would never be in the capacity of a student. But then I thought of coming home, and knowing that once again I would see "The Lady in the Harbor'' with all she symbolizes in this problem-stricken world, and knowing my family would be waiting at the dock, I turned my face in great anticipation to the United States and HOME. Even now as I write, I am remembering the people, the educational opportunity, the community, and the countries, which added together constitute my wonderful Junior Year Abroad.

Is Scholarship Considered? â&#x20AC;˘ Do you consider the s holarship of a prospective member when her name is being con idered for the rush list? This may seem an unnecessary step, but if you stop to think, the records of the past are like an arrow, th a t is, th ey are indicative of the type of student she is. If she is low in scholarship, joining a sorority will not automatically make her average improve . It is a very difficult thing to notify a girl she will have to sever her sorority affiliations because she is unable to maintain the required " C ' average. -MARY E. GAUGHAN, in The Alpha Sigma Tau Anchor via The Fraternity Month .

COLLEGE, SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI â&#x20AC;˘ OUTHWEST MissouRI STATE CoLLEGE is situated in Springfield, a city of almost 100,000 population. Only last summer Springfield was elected as an All-American city. For this reason, the 2,500 students at SMS feel that the school qualifies as an All-American college. The college, located in the southeastern part of the city, consists of ten buildings on a forty-acre tract. Six new buildings are to be added in a mammoth ¡ building program spawned by a $75,000,000 state bond issu e. Already under construction is a spacious four-story classroom building. To follow will be two women's dormitories, a men's dormitory, a fine arts building, and a practical arts building. SMS, founded in 1905, was known as Springfield Normal until 1919, when it became Southwest Missouri State Teachers College. The word teachers was dropped in 1945 when the Missouri General Assembly took note of the variety of educational services rendered by the college. The growth of the school has been synonymous with the growth and expansion of the southwest Missouri area. Enrollment has shown a fifty per cent increase in the past five years, and the faculty now numbers over a hundred. Last year, students from twenty-nine states and fifteen foreign countries were enrolled, although the majority are native Missourians. The college has already conferred almost 9,000 degrees- full accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, the American Association of Colleges for T eachers Education, and approved by the American Association of University Women. D egrees include Bache1or of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Science in Education. In addition, SMS m aintains programs of study for students who wish to prepare for entrance into professional schools. Its students are regularly admitted to the leading schools of medicine, law, journalism, dentistry, engineering, theology, and other professional schools. In 1952, a D epartment of D efense or R eserve Officers Training Corps was added. It has since taken its place as one of the leading ROTC departments in the Fifth Army area. For students who have completed their und er-

g raduate study a nd are looking forward toward advanced degrees, the college offers a graduate program in cooperation with Missouri University. Half of the work may be taken on the SMS campus, the other half at the University. At the college helm is Dr. Roy Ellis, a native Missourian who has guided the institution since 1926. When he became president, the fort y acres were dotted with only three buildings; the Administration building, the Education building, and a music building (which was razed only this fall). A science building was under construction and was finished in 1928. Added have been a 7,500capacity athletic stadium, a 3,300-capacity fieldbouse, a spacious Student Center, a $600,000 libra1y, and a shoptype building that houS'es the agriculture and industrial education departments. The classroom building, now being readied, will cost $650,000. The dormitories will be constructed at a cost of almost one and half million dollars. The fine arts building will cost $875,000, the practical arts building $350,000. SMS also boasts a swimming pool built to Olympic specifications, one of the few in the nation situated on college campuses. The school has long been recognized as a power in small-college sports. SMS is the only college ever to win the National Intercollegiate Athletic Association basketball title two consecutive years. Its football and basketball teams are always in the thick of the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association races . Traditional football rival of the Bears is Missouri Mines, with the Old Powder K eg trophy going annually to the winner. Although the school has prospered the past couple of decades, no one can venture a guess as to where or when the upward spiral will stop. One thing is ce rtain: SMS will offer more and more for more and more students in years to come.
