away the rewards received to build nobler and loftier structures. The death of Dr. Conwell naturally resulted in the postponement of many social affairs. Our first rush party was held on Dece1uber first in the Recreation Room of the dormitories. The invitations on buff colored paper pict\.tring the entrance of a house, were made by our girls. The place cards were little umbrellas outlined in green ink which were placed on the edge of the glass. The dinner as usual -vvas prepared by our home economics girls, who have won a reputation all over the university as excellent cooks. During the course of the meal conundrums, which were found on the backs of the umbrellas, were read, and much fun resulted. After dinner we adjourned to the library where we spent the rest of the evening playing games, and sang our favorite Alpha Sig songs . Then, too, dancing was not forgotten. On December fifth we held the alumnae luncheon of Kappa Kappa at the Benjamin Franklin Hotel. About twenty-two alumnae were present, and over half of the active chapter. Irene Parker, our ex-collegio secretary, had charge of the meeting. Mary Shallcross of the class of 1923 gave a short talk on "\i\That A. ~- A. Means to an Alumna." Our president, Mary vVagner, spoke on the relationship of the active chapter to the alumnae. In behalf of the chapter Irene was presented with a beautiful bouquet of roses in recognition of the splendid success of the first meeting of actives and alumnae. The table decorations and dessert carried out the colors of green and gold. The alumnae have planned to make this a yearly affair. They also decided to raise the dues from one to five dollars, because they thought with more money th ey could do more for the active chapter. The luncheon was an unusual success and the spirit of A. ~-A. was felt in the heart of every girl. On the evening of December fifth Kappa Kappa and Nu Nu held a subscription dance in Beury Hall of Temple University. The money derived was to be used for the benefit of the rushing parties of both chapters. It was a great evening for all with many alumnae present. The hall was decorated with palms and balloons which hung from the lights, and floated and danced in the air as the Cherry and White Collegiate played their stringed instruments with much enthusiasm and good cheer.
