THE PHOEN IX

BUFFALO STATE NORMAL COLLEGE


THE PHOENIX THE INSTALLATION OF PI PI CHAPTER OF ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA The installation of Pi Pi Chapter at the Buffalo State Normal College took place on June fifth, nineteen hundred and twentysix. After chapel on that eventful day groups of sorority girls could be seen with their heads together talking excitedly, and the Clionians were distinguished by their wild appearance as they raced from place to place. Finally our president sent for us with news that Miss Root and Miss Corpron had arrived and were awaiting us in the Social Center. After we had been introduced to our guests, . plans for the clay were completed with lightning speed. All Clionians were excused from further classes, and descended in a body to the Lenox hotel where the service was to be held . All initiations are beautiful, but ours surpassed in spirituality and symbolism. Imagine, if you can, twenty or so girls, all dressed in bridal white, crowded in a little hotel dressing room, waiting for the summons which, when it came, would make all real Alpha Sigma Alphas. At the completion of the ceremony which united us in the wonderful new sisterhood, a banquet was held in the Rose Room. The presidents of all the other sororities at college, Alpha Sigma Tau, Delta Sigma Epsilon, Pi Kappa Sigma, and Sigma Sigma Sigma, our faculty adviser, Miss E lizabeth Small, the installing officers, and Dr. and Mrs. Root were all honored guests, and received shoulder corsages tied with our colors. Following the banquet the initiates retired again to the Grey Room where a business meeting was held. The chapter is very grateful to Miss Root and Miss Corpron for the helpful suggestions and encouragement which they gave to us. On Saturday our guests journeyed to Niagara Falls with Dr. Root and three of our girls, and on Sunday we had tea at

the Statler Hotel. Miss Corpron's engagements prevented her staying later than Sunday, but Miss Root installed our new officers before returning to New York. It would be useless to try to write what Alpha Sigma Alpha means to us, for all of you have been through it and know. This we can say though,-Alpha Sigma Alpha has never installed a more loyal chapter, or one which will work harder for the honor and glory of the so rority. BUFFALO STATE NORMAL COLLEGE The site for Buffalo State N onnal College was cleeclecl to the city of Buffalo by Jesse Ketchum in 1866. The state thereupon appropriated funds for a building which was ready for occupancy in 187 1. In 1911 the Homemaking, Vocational, and Industrial Vocational departments were aclclecl, and the old building was found inadequate, so more funds were appropriated by the state for the erection of a new building. The new building was built around the old one and classes continued until the fall of 1914, when the new unit was completed. The school is one of the best designed and equipped normal schools in the country. 路 Dr. Harry W. Rockwell, our present principal, has clone much to promote the school's welfare, and through his efforts a summer school is maintained, and extension courses are given on Saturday mornings and in the late afternoons. The Vocational Homemaking Department has been granting B. S . degrees for some time, but it was not until 1925 that the state granted us the privileges of a real college, offering four year courses in all departments with work leading to a degree. Our registration has passed the point where every application is accepted, and applicants are admitted only on the basis of their high school average. A mong the national sororities on the campus are: Sigma Sigma Sigma, Pi Kappa Sigma, Delta Sigma Epsilon, Alpha Sigma Tau, and the honorary Homemaking Fraternity, Phi Upsilon O micron. Sororities play an important part in the life of Buffalo State Normal College. Each one is allowed one dance a year in the school gymnasium, the date and the type to be selected by the sorority. A school ruling fixes the price of ad-

m1s 10n, so that all dances a re kept simple and in formal. Often a sorority takes charge of a chapel program and either gives a play or entertainm ent themselves, or secures an outside speaker or entertainer. Vile have a Panhell enic Co uncil, whi ch is . composed of two members from each sorority, who govern rushing rules and all matters which inAuence school and sorority life. This year it was decided that no freshman with a first semester average below C could be asked to join any sorority. Buffalo State Normal College probably is similar to many other city normal schools in work and attainments, but we are certain that the love and loyalty which Buffalo's sons and daughters have for their A lma Mater cannot be compared to any other in th is great country.

THE HISTORY OF PI PI CHAPTER Alpha Chapter of the Clionian Sorority was formed in 1872 at Geneses Normal School. F rom time to time various other normal schools in the state of New York petitioned Clionian for membership and were allowed to J0111 the organization. Theta Chapter was formed in Buffalo State Normal School in 1909. The aim of Clio was not purely social, for the promotion of sisterly feeling and unity of interest were stressed both within the school and among other schools. \Vith the growth of the school, we felt that a broader field hac! opened to us, and as soon as degrees were granted in all courses, we petitioned Alpha Sigma Alpha. i\!Iis Fultz came to visit us, and as soon as we saw her and the badge we decided that no power in heaven or on earth could keep us from affi liating with Alpha Sigma Alpha. \Ne held a long and heated consultation to question the possibility of our really "going national." O ur treasury was sadly depleted as it was the end of the rushing season. R ush parties have become rather an expensive proposition as there are six sororities at school including Sigma Sigma Sigma, Pi Kappa Sigma, Delta Sigma Epsilon, Alpha Sigma Tau, and a local which has not been formally recognized. Thus competition is great and trea uries suffer as a result. We wished to have enough in the treasury to pay half of 路each girl's initiation fee. Therefore, we started a round of bridge parties, candy sales,

rummage ales, and roller skating parties, ending with a two piano concert by Guy and Lois Mayer in the school auditorium. \A/ e reached our goal financially, and on June fourth we attained our other goal and became a group of loyal members of Alpha Sigma Alpha. Thus we ASPIRED, SOUGHT, and ATTAINED.

DELTA DELTA STANDARDS The gi rl s of our chapter shall conduct themselves in a manner which will make them good examples for those about them. They shall endeavo r to develop according to the four-fold aim of Alpha Sigma Alpha in the following ways: PHYSICAL: "Alpha S igma A lpha recognizes the imperative need of a strong body as the dwelling place of a strong mind." Each girl shall form health habits which will permit her to develop herself to the highest point of efficiency. She shall have the utmost respect for her body at all times. She shall be neat in appearance. INTELLECTUA L: As an organization we shall maintain high standard scholarship. \ Ale stand for education rather than training.

of

SOCIAL: Each girl shall represent the organization m at least one activ ity on the campu . The development of the gi rl 's personality is encouraged. She shall be able to mingle well with people. She shall conduct herself so as always to be a welcome member of a party. Development of leadership and initiative is encouraged in the girl. SPIRITUAL: As an organization we encourage partiCipation m church activities and religious undertakings on the campus. \Ne uphold con cientiously all university standards.

llu flrmnriam AGNES SANDINE TOMS The passing of Agnes Sancline Brun son Toms on November twenty-third leaves another void in the ranks of the first thirty .-\lpha S igma A lphas to be initiated into Beta Beta Chapte r in 19 16, by l\Irs. E lva Doyle Reid, now also deceased. Agnes Toms, better known to us as "Sanely," was a nati\' e of Illinois, and received her higher education in the Colorado State Teachers College. Before coming to the Colorado college she had been a very successful teacher for several yea rs, but even then she was in ve ry poor health. Just prior to her yea r with Beta Beta she had nursed a brother during a long fatal illness. This was a great drain on her strength , for she had never been very sturdy. ''Sanely" taught in Colorado Springs after leaving school in Greeley. It was there that she met her first husband, Carl Brunso n. Du ring the seve re epidemic of influenza in the Springs, both Agnes and M r. Brun son were taken very ill, and the death of -:\ f r. Brunson was indeed sad and tragic. :\gnes finally recove red suffici ently from the shock of her husband's death and her own illness, to take a school in Stockton, Cali fornia, where one of her brothers was living. In her second year there she married M r. Homer S. Toms, principal of the Stockton Evening H igh School. To the happiness of M r. Toms and hi s two motherless children Agnes cleclicatecl her life. Her death is truly a sad loss to th em. For a period of nearly ten years Agnes was the National H istorian of Alpha S igma Alpha . She was an untiring and devoted worker, and stood always for the highest and best thin gs in life. "Sanely" endea red herself to all the charter members of Beta Reta. Self-sacrifi ce was the keynote of her life, and knowl edge of her passing will bring a feeling of sadness to all who knew her. To all her loved ones. the alumnae of Beta Beta Chapter send hea rtfelt sympathy.

at two tables with Ermine Smythe winning the guest pnze. R efreshments were served. A still more exciting event took place on Thursday evening when several members and rushees motored out to the Grim cabin west of Kirksville. The girls arrived at the cabin about six o'clock and immediately everyone got busy and prepared a huge campfire. A delicious picnic lunch was served. After this the girls went on a sight-seeing trip to the springs on the Collett farm and then viewed the Chariton River. On their return to the cabin, the girls sat around the campfire and sang songs. Beds had been arranged in the cabin, and after a night of more or le s sleep, the girls arose at five-thirty, enjoyed a campfire breakfast and returned to town in time for eight o'clock classes. In this clay and age of wonderful inventions, when a majority of us are buzzing around in automobiles, when most of us are plucking our entertainment from the air, and when no small numbers are looking clown from the clouds at the busy world below, it seems different to say the least, that we looked backward to the time of A rabian N ights for an evening's entertainment. But A laddin's wonderful lamp and wishing ring, and the magic carpet, accomplished much in our childhood clays, and bridged vast distances over land and sea. \iVhen on Saturday night the Alpha Sigs found it hard to decide which country, England, France, Italy, or Spain would offer the most attractive menu, it was suggested that we bring the old lamp out of the dark closet, brush it up, and attach it to the old white steamer, and see what would happen. Thus at seven o'clock, the girls boarded the steamer, Queen ASA, of the 路w hite Star Line, and were given a folder containing information regarding a tour of Europe and return, arranged by the Alpha Sigma Alphas exclusively for the intellectual elite, together with the itinerary. The first stop was made at the Murrello House, Seville, Spain, ( hom e of Natalie Murrell). Natalie and Dorothy Sens in Spanish costumes acted as hostesses. The g'i rls were served salpicon (cocktail ) of Malaga grapes and Seville oranges. vVe were able to view th e national spo rt of Spain, a bull fight, in miniature,. arranged on the center of the table. The wishing ring then transported the company to the Hotef de Ville, Paris, France, (the home of Lorna \ i\1 attenbarger) ~

where we were met by Mabel Christie, as a li ttle French maid. dinner course, consisting of chicken pullet, potato p uree, apple glace, rolls and cafe noir, was ser ved . vVith the aiel of the lamp the girls were able to visit the Palace of th e Doges, in Venice, Italy, (home of Ve ta Hall ) for the salad course. The table represented the Grand Canal. A watermelon cut to resemble a large gondola, formed the centerpiece, and each guest ate her Venetian salad from a small gondola on the white sail of which she found her name. Mary Bentl ey sang Italian songs. The Magic Carpet then transferred us to Buckingham Palace, England, (home of M rs. J. M . Kennedy) . The butlers of the well-known E ngli sh type were in attendance. By special a rrangement we were all presented to the king and queen, little Patrici a Campbell and Billy Bigsby, resplendent in royal robes, who were seated on the throne. The guests were then ser ved Engli sh plum pudding. The impressive carved furniture of the Kennedy home formed an appropriate setting for this affair. The house was beautifully decorated with crimson and white flowers. OUR HOME

vVe are very fortunate to have access to a home this year. It cannot exactly be called a sorority house, but four of the girls are living there, Mabel Chri stie, An nabelle Wayla nd , E lizabeth Romans, and Lilly Ralston. We owe our tha nks to M rs. Kenneely, who is the ow ner of the house. S he also lives there, and has given us permission to hold all sorority meetings and social functions at the house if we so desire. vVe feel extremely gratef ul for the use of this house, especially since it is considered one of the prettiest res idences in the city, furnished entirely in old English style. PLEDGE DANCE

On Saturday night, Octobe r 16, we gave a dance in hono r of our pledges. Each pledge wore a shoulder corsage, as a gift from the girls. Favo rs were in the form of noise makers a nd balloons. vVe were happy to welcome Emma Self as our guest. INITIATION

On October seventh all the girls and some guests attended a line party to see "The Limited Mail ," given und er the auspices of the Boosters Club. Then on October ninth we all met at the sorority house and went in a g roup to the football game. \ i\Te took many girls with us as our guests, and had a very pleasant time. Of course, Teachers College Bears won and we all agree the game was a dandy, but if yelling helped win, the lpha Sigs certainly did their part. The game was played with Brigham Young U niversity of U tah on the new athletic field about two blocks east of the college. vVhat coul d have been more of a surprise than to see three of our members of last year back for the game?

RUSH PARTY

O ur ru sh party was most delightful. It was carried out in the form of a "Three Arts" dinner dance. Drawing, drama, and music were the arts represented. Green and gold, were the predominating colors. After the program the sorority girls and their guests gathered in a circle and sang sorority songs, with ukul ele accompaniment, after which they returned to the grotto for dancing. FOOTBALL

The footba ll team of Colorado State Teachers College played Denver University and we are glad to say that many Alpha Sigs went to Denver to support the team. A special train was used for the college students and we all had a grand time. \iVhat do you suppose added to the merriment of the occasion? Cow bells ' If you want pep and noise at a football game just buy some cow bells. This was a clever idea brought back from Iowa by the football squad, and the idea sure went over big. OUR MASCOT

Hurrah for Colorado State Teachers College! 'Ne have a mascot which is different: a great, wild, wooly bear by the name of \!Varden . He is a curi ous bear, and had not been in his new home very long before he decided to explore the city. One fine evening he escaped from his abode and frightened several town people before he was caught. This is one reason why we are o careful about our pledgees, for we would not wish any of them to be eaten by a big, black bear! M ildred Harmon is teaching primary and music at Lucerne, Colo.

Our celebration of Founder's Day was held early this year because of the annual teachers' meeting which was held on Oc路 tober twenty-one and twenty-third. At this time many of our girls are able to attend the celebration, when they would have to miss it if it occurred later in the fall. Thirty-four g irl s, college members, alumnae, and pledges, gathered at eight o'clock on Saturday morning, October thirtieth to honor Alpha Sigma Alpha Founders' Day. A delicious breakfast, consisting of orange cup, crisp bacon, omelet', toast, coffee, sherbet and wafers, was served. Following this, Beulah Farrand sang a vocal solo, Lucelle Chew F rance, an alumna, told of Alpha Sigma Alpha twenty-five years ago, Gladys Blackford Funk played a piano solo, Sue Edwards told of Alpha Sigma Alpha today, giving a story of happenings at Convention, Lorinda Mason Lane sang, and Eva Ames, our newest initiate, visualized A . S. A. twenty-five years hence. Then talks were given by Luella Harzman, Secretary of the Ex-Collegia chapter, and Miss Shockley, and Louise Glaser, our college chapter president, who presided over the whole affair. Everyone enjoyed th e breakfast, and to see the groups of happy girls was to realize that Alpha Sigma Alpha is indeed a sisterhood. MARRIAGES

The summer and fall brought several changes. Of the alumnae girls, two have formed lifetime partnerships. These are Bess Elliott, who married George Plaer; and Alberta Patterson, who was married to Glenn Burnnet. BIRTHS

of course made the expenses of rushing less heavy. Even our exclusive dinner was held at home, and I think we all enjoyed it much more than if it had been down town. \Ve had our usual picnic, which always helps so much to break down barriers ancl to get rushers and ru shees acquainted. A N E W H OUS E

All the other chapters heard about our new house which we are buying, for Doris West told about it at Convention . We become more enthusiastic from day to day, as we continue to find new ways of improving our home. One evening at meeting, om pledges presented us with a beautiful floor lamp, which of course adds a great deal to our living room. And then, just as we were thinking about our lovely pledges, in rushed our city alumn a= group and impressed upon our minds the fact that our alumn;:e were just as fine. They sang to us an original song, wh ich enclerl with the words, "Vve've bought a piano for you." We could scarcely imagine a sweeter ending for a song. The mother-patronesses and the alumnae did so much toward getting the house ready for us that we were surprised when we arrived to find it looking quite home-like. We had made up our minds to a little privation at first, but we found nothing like that. Our president, Emma Jensen, worked hard all summer, getting the business details straightened out, and the house furnished. Emma has a great deal of ability, and such a sweet personality along with it that every girl wants to do all she can to cooperate with our president, and to make things "go." Adela Anderson is deserving of a great deal of credit for having instigated and helped materially in carrying through tlw purchasing of our house. When all the rest of us were ready to give up in despair, or when we lost our courage, clda was here with encouragement and good, practical ideas. She also loaned us quite a sum of money to help us get started this year. Epsilon Epsilon will never forget Adela . 'vVe are making plans for the building of a sleeping porch later on in the .year. If these plans materialize, we will of course be able to accommodate more than the sixteen girls who are now living in the house. \Ve serve three meals a day at the house, and find that through eating together, and singing our songs every evening. we become better acquainted with each other, and en-

JOY ourselves much more than if we were "eating around," as we call it. We have a very lovely house mother-Mrs. Puffer, from Burlington, Kansas. She is refined and cultured, and at the same time is so sweet and sincere that the girls all love her. She is an excellent manager, and we certainly depend upon her to help us solve our problems. I am sure we could not have found a more successful or a more popular house mother, if we had searched ever so long. INTELLIGENCE TESTS

It is the custom in Emporia Teachers College to give to all freshmen a number of intelligence tests before enrollment hegins. After the results of these tests have been tabulated, we are at liberty to look up the standing of any freshman. This of course gives us an opportunity to get a " line-up" on our pledges. M iss Strouse has looked 'up the record of each of them, and we find that we have a group of very brilliant girls, f rom whom we are expecting big things. We are having supervised study periods in the house, and we hope this plan will help in keeping our scholarship standard well up. LOCAL ITEMS

Doris \Nest, our representative to the Convention, gave us a very interesting report, upon her return. In telling of the other chapters, she made us feel that we should like to know every one of them. Miss Strouse came back to us with more and better ideas than ever. Things always go more smoothly as soon as Miss Strouse thinks matters over and gives a few suggestions. Vve realize more every year how very indispensable our sponsor ~s to us, and how much she has a! ways clone . We have had no parties since rush week. Last Sunday we had as dinner guests M iss Strouse and the Dean of Vl omen, Miss Minrow. OPEN HOUSE

Open house for fraternities was very successf ul. vVe entertained two nights, for Sigma M u Delta, Kappa Sigma Epsilon. and Sigma Tau Gamma on Friday, and for Phi Delta Chi and Phi Sigma Epsilon on Saturday.

Eta Eta has received compliments f rom several patronesses on ru sh week. We feel that our parties were very successful. O ur first event was a "Golden Rod" breakfast at the home of P resident Brandenbu rg. Golden rod made a very attractive decoration. A "Chrysanthemum Tea" was our afternoon affair. It was held at the beautiful home of M rs. Spencer and the rushees were given chrysanthemums . O ur Sailor Frolic at the home of ~Irs. Gibson vvas also quite a success. The members wore sailor suits and sail or games were played. V.fe opened Satu rday morning with a "Hayrack Farmerett'' breakfast with a portable victrola and sorority songs we had a gay ride. Of course, it rained, but rain could not kill the enthusiasm of a bunch of Alpha Sigs. In the afternoon we had a line party and "A. S. A . Specials" at Casey's Drug Store were served . T he fo rmal dinner was at the Leland Hotel. Decorations of large "mums" were used . O ur rushees were given silver compacts bearing A. S. A. letters. HONORS

THETA THETA CHAPTER BLUE BOWS

The Alpha Sigs, with the help and cooperation of the Dean, held a mass meeting of the School of Education, and then gave out to every one the little blue bows that served as an identification, since BLUE is the accepted color of EDUCATION. Th is distinguished EDUCATION students from Liberal Arts students at all times, and proved an invaluable aid in rushing, because no time was wasted in following up promising material, only to find that the student was enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts. A SUMMER SEA

The Gipsy Party at vVinthrop Beach was a great . success. It was the first time that some of the rushees had ever looked upon Old Ocean, and their delight was unbounded. October is supposed to bring cool days, but that particular Saturday was what might be called "bli stering" hot. It was just the opportunity that was needed to make every one feel at home, because everybody wished to get into the water.

TI-IE PHOENIX

Christina Little. whose home is quite near the beach, succeeded in getting hold of enough bathing suits so that every one desirous of taking a clip could do so. There was some sunburn, of course, because the mermaids just had to sit around in the hot sun before dressing, but there was very little complaint. because everybody found the experience so very novel. All sorts of games were played on the and and around the fire, which was built at twilight of driftwood that had been gathered on the beach, but at length every one settled clown to the business of roasting her wienie . What mattered it, if the delectable morsel got burned on one end, and wasn't cooked on the other, or whether it got mixed up with one on a neighboring stick and rolled off into the fire, to be dug out of the ashes all sizzled and burned! \!\Then tucked away in a roll and covered with mustard, it might have been fit food for the gods, so delicious did it taste. AROUND THE TEACUPS P lans had been made for a pilgrimage to Harvard and to l\1rs . Gardner's Italian Palace, where are innumerable art treasures, but Sunday proved to be a rainy day, and so there was just a little simple tea in the fire-light at the rooms on Newbury Street. It was just the right kind of gathering for that particular kind of clay, and the result was most satisfactory, because everybody had a chance to get acquainted with everybody else. THE BRIDGE PARTY

On the following 路w ednesday, the Boston City Association , which is taking a very active interest in Theta Theta doings, gave a party for the Chapter and its rushees at the Quincy Community Club, which was secured through the courtesy of Marion Colby, Association President. Boston University colors are crimson and white, so they were used in this occasion, since they could serve as college and a Sorority colors. There was an attractive invitation, a pretty tally, cakes with the Sorority letters made by Edith Anderson's mother, and oldfashioned nosegays made of candy and contributed by Christina Little. Not everybody knew how to play bridge, but there were other o路ames as well as cards, and so every one had a delightful time.

TH E JAP A N ESE DINNER

All ex-collegio members will recall their experiences at their Theta Theta Japanese dinner, which was inaugurated by Olive Place, who had spent some years in the Mikado's domains, and which proved so unique that it has become a traditional ru shing stunt. There were too few returning girls and resident alumme to give the play that was such a feature of the evening in other years . Hazel Hunt bought the favors in New York City, and so the "l\Iikaclo" was present to draw gifts from hi s sleeves as of yore. O ne can never be too grateful to Olive Place for her suggestion, because a Japanese Dinner, where the guests and hostesses may sit on the floor , solves many a problem, where dishes are few and chairs at a premium, where every inch of space has to be utilized. in order to accommodate a large crowd. Serving everything in one dish eliminates another problem, which might be a very serious one, where helpers are few, and where there are available the facilities of a tiny suite. There is a charm, too, about a souvenir from old Japan that never loses its fascination, no matter how many years may pass. There is not a Theta Theta girl who does not treasure one. PHOE N IX SERVI CE

The first of the very impressive ceremonies was held last ni ght at the home of the National President, when seven girls donned the silver pledge pins. Before we tell you about that, however, we want to speak of the dinner at the "Gralyn." This is a Hotel out in the Fenway and near the river, so it is delightfully situated . It caters to a splendid type of guests, and so is most desirable for dinners given by college girls. Most of the tabl es in the dining-room are small, but the one reserved for Alpha Sigma Alpha was large enough to accommodate all present, and it was especially distinctive, because reel flowers were used in profusion, and because the silver candlesticks were decorated with crimson shades. Beside the plate of each pledgee was a corsage bouquet of white pom-pom chrysanthemums. The dinner, from soup to nuts, carried out the same color scheme. The Service later at Mrs. Martin's home was lovely as always. Grace Whitaker, as Chapter President, was in charge, and Christina Little presided over the candle-l ighting ceremony. Later.

Mrs. ::\Iartin took care of the lecture on the Greek alphabet in her inimitable way. Those of you who have sat in the "tower'' in a semi-circle facing the wide archway leading into the music room will !路-=member the thrill that came to you when 1\Irs. Martin spoke of the beauty of the letter THETA, which symbolizes the individual within a circle of friends . \Vill you ever forget the " little lamb so weak that it could not stand alone, unless it spread its legs"? Will you ever forget that SIGMA is the letter of aspiration, of eager search, of attainment? \i\Till you ever forget the joy of learning that you were no longer hoi polloi, or barbaroi , that you were college Greeks in very truth? Let us help you to visualize the scene as it occurred this year by telling you that Mrs. Martin wore a tucked crepe de chine, ornamented with a circular flounce, with a string of sparkling crimson beads. Add to these the old, familiar smi le. and you have the picture. There were other thrills this year, because the new girls could be told something about the wonderful Convention, and then, too . they received their copies of the new songbook. There is musical talent in Theta Theta, as heretofore, and the girls found it extremel y difficult to tear themselves away from the piano, for every song seemed just a little better than the one just sung, and there was such a glorious assortment to choose from. The "Handbook '' and the copies of the 1925-26 "Phoenix" also had a share in making the new girls realize how fortunate they were in being members of Alpha Sigma Alpha. WE ARE SEVEN

On the same evening our fir st rush party wa held at the chapter house in the form of a fudge party with the alumnce in charge. Many of the girls were rather homesick and such an evening so delightfully spent, made them forget their troubles . On Saturday evening one of our patronesses, l\Irs.

OPENING

\"'ith the parody on Kipling's "If," our president, June Smith , began our meeting of October fourth. It was a round table discussion of rushing that was very beneficial to al l of us, for it made us realize how important rushing is, and how carefully must our choices be made. The new girls were asked to express their ideas of an ideal A. S. A. girl. Then different names of Freshmen girls who seem especially attractive were suggested to the rushing captain. This informal discussion served to give point and aim to rushing. Y. W. C. A. RECOGNITION SERVICE

Our busi ness meeting of the eleventh wa very interesting. All the officers and nearly all the chairmen made reports that showed they were working with energy. T he Panhellenic report revealed the fact that rushing will not take place until the second semester. The Alpha Sigs were very much in favor of th is fo r it wi ll give both the sororities and the girl s a better opportunity to choose real values. lso official announ cement was made that Phi Lambda Kappa, a sorority that entered our campus last year, has now become a chapte r of Alpha Sigma Tau. This makes the fourth member of A. E. S. on our campus. A NEW FRATERNITY HOUSE

The Theta Upsil on Omega Fraternity have opened a fraternity house on Park Avenue and they recently dedicated it in conjunction with a dinner and a dance. P resident Beury, Dean Carnell and 1rs. Doyle, our chapter advisor , were at the dinner. One of the most interesting features of their clubroom the fine portrait of Dr. Conwell hung over the fireplace. A WET GAME

The Alpha Sigs chartered a bus and attended the TempleSchuylkill game . It was raining quite steadily when we started but undaunted, we donned bright colored slickers and galoshes and put all the more pep in our cheering because it was so wet. \ Ve were well rewarded for the game was a very exciting one and Temple cored two touchdowns in the first quarter. Last year we were defeated by chuylkill and that made the game this yea r all the better. THE DORMITORY DANCE

In order to become acquainted with the freshmen the sororities have been giving social affairs. Kappa Delta Gamma opened with a court dance. and another sorority gave a Span ish Cabaret. \Ve followed with a Tea Dance in the Art Gallery. r\ Drexel orchestra furnished the music for the crovvd which attended. \Ve charged twenty-five cents admission, serving tea and cinnamon toast. 1\liss Macintyre, our sponsor, poured. The tea was a huge success financially and socially, everyone seemed to have a jolly good time. and it was a splendid opportunity to become acquainted with the freshmen. AT DREXEL PAUL LODGE

The outstanding event for our group on October was the Hallowe'en party at Drexel Paul Lodge in 路vVayne. This was the fir t time boys had been allowed at the Lodge. About fifteen of our brother fraternity. Kappa Sigma Delt, attended. The Lodge was decorated with corn stalks, spooky cats, owls and witches. \Ve built huge fire s in the fireplaces and piled apples on every window seat and ledge. At six-thirty the boys arrived, and we all sat down at long table covered w ith black and orange crepe pape r lattice work . 'vVe were given slips of paper bearing a number. The eyen numbers were matched with numbers on little black witches attached to the nut cups . The lights were softened by orange paper napkins, bearing silhouettes, which we adjusted by making a hol e in the middle of the square and lipping the bulb through it. \i\/hile we gorged ourselves with beans, baked ham. cold slaw, brown bread, coffee, gingerbread and cider, we told jokes, latwhed and had a howling good time in general. The collapsing of a bench necessitated the adjournment to the living room, where we sat around the fire , toasted mar hmallows, sang. and li stened to ome creepy stories.

October twenty-third was the time for another new venture for Drexel. The Y. W. C. A. gave a barn dance in the gymnasium, and always before large dances have been held in the great Court. The gymnasium was decorated appropriately with corn, pumpkins, and black cats. The "horse" graced one corner, bedecked with a feather duster tail and a blanket. The atmos-路 phere was one of informality, freedom, and good cheer. W E LCO ME!

We have pledged, a new member, Edith Weaver, who lives in Philadelphia. We are overjoyed to have her one of us. A LUMN AE ITE MS

Miss Macintyre has received letters from Jane Clark, Nancy Jones, and Dorothy Oakes, telling of their woes away from Drexel. Jane and Nancy are lonely, while Dotty has found out how glorious A. S. A. really is by becoming a close friend to a chum of another A. S. A. Dotty says that it certainly does mean a great deal to her. Helen Lindenmuth and Florence Brierley visit us almost every week-end. We do not know what we would do without them. We were all happily surprised when Lib Haines burst into the Hallowe'en party at Drexel Paul. It was a big shock, but it surely did seem more like old times to have her back with us agam. Tongues wagged-and wagged some more. Edith M. Rood .

Saturday, just a week after the dinner, we gave a bridge tea for the rushees at the lovely home of Orrell Hester in Glendale.

After the bridge scores were completed the pledges served tea and caks and the members and the guests chatted about school, vacations, and football games. After tea had been served the prizes were given out and the girls went home. A BEACH PARTY

A week later Xi Xi Chapter entertained the rushees with an informal party at Orrell Hester's beach home in Hermosa Beach. The party began about five o'clock in the evening and a few of the girls who arrived early went in swimming in the ocean. Later in the evening under the direction of Jean Adams we played a number of games and sang ASA songs . About ten thirty a cold supper was served and during supper the pledges entertained the guests with popular songs. After supper we sang the college hymn and the party broke up. OUR LAST RUSH PARTY

This was a theatre party. The feature was "The Q uarterback" and the college story was very appropriate for the party. During the show a novelty singing lesson was given the audience by the orchestra, and, since our chapter is lucky enough to have a number of girls with good voices we made quite a showing and received a great deal of applause. After the show the group divided and drove to Mildred Baker's home for refreshments. When the party broke up everyone decided the evening was young and that all of us should go to the Rally Dance given before the football game the next day but when we arrived at the scene of the dance it was all over so we had to go home. FORMAL INNITIATION

Initiation was held Monday evening the eleventh of October. Gertrude Peterson, Frances Rogers, Jean Adams, Mona Sachs, and Alma Einung were the initiates. Afterwards we had a party to welcome our new members into ASA. RIBBON PLEDGING

OUR MEE TING PLACE S

We are rather handicapped for a meeting place, as Normal has neither dormitories nor sorority houses . However, our meeting places do not lack variety and they provide an opportunity for us to see the city, for we are meeting at the homes of the different members. A CARD PARTY

Our first card party of the season was held on October twenty-ninth at the Markeen Hotel and we are happy to announce that it was a success socially as well as financially. We have also another system for raising money. There is a small moving picture house quite near the school which allows organizations to sell tickets for thirty cents, and to keep half of the proceeds. There are no restrictions as to the number sold, and therefore, it is a neat little way to make ~ few extra pennies. F OUNDERS DAY

Pi Pi celebrated her first Founders Day with a banquet in the Washington Room of the Touraine Hotel. We were happy to

have six newly initiated alumnc:e members with us then. The long tables were decorated in red and white. Each member and guest had a rose at her place to which was attached her place card.

The program was: Toastmistress, Evelyn Bell; (!ionian, Helen Vleis; The Birdling, Clionian, the Fledgling, Rose Kraft; Alpha Sigma Alpha, the Phoenix; Retrospect, Ruth Vawter; Prospect, May Brill. After dinner Miss Harris gave the sorority whistle and immediately the room was filled with very strange sounds which were followed in due time by more musical sounds as we crowded around the piano to sing Alpha Sigma Alpha songs. RUSHING

Rushing season opened once more. Our first party was a Gypsy Party on December fourteenth. The invitations were oblong black cards with a gypsy girl's head in profile painted on them. Over her gaily clad shoulder, she carired a match stick, to which was tied an equally gay bundle. The bundle lifted up, disclosing the invitation . We hope the party itself will be a success.
