MY IMPRESSIONS OF INSTALLATION As we do not have snow in Southern California, the nearest approach to it was seen on Sunday afternoon, January 24, 1926, when the eighteen excited girls gathered together in their pure white dresses, for they looked like soft fluffy snowflakes. We had been ushered upstairs into a room to await the summons from the mysterious regions below and nearly all of us were quite nervous. Soon it came and I was among the first four to go. I don't think there was ever a more serious group of girls than those who that day took their vows of eternal secrecy and loyalty to Alpha Sigma Alpha . .\1\lhen we were allowed to look upon the inner shrine our hands gripped. I looked at the beauty of the room and heard the low sweet strains of music, and then I looked at those lovely girls who had come to carry out and be partakers in this ceremony, that everything might be beautiful for us-and it was. I wanted to go off and cry-I was so happy, and I looked forward to a life of more service to others . The day had been cold and threatened rain, but our hearts and souls were warmed with the light of love which had come to us through these bonds of eternal friendship we had formed with our sisters of Alpha Sigma Alpha .
