Aspire thee to the gleam afar That beckons from yon distant star. Seek fields of truth and love divine Tread on and up to paths sublime!

ttain each hope, each goal, each prize

~

That just beyond earth's darkness lie .

~

\spire to climb, and win through pain Endured that those who follov\ gain. Seek loss of self and love the stray, \i\Tho weakened wander from the way.

Attain through battle grim and o-ray The triumph of the promi ed day.

THE PHOENIX MOTHER-P ATRONESSHIP "l f J were hanged on the highest hill ,

Mother o' mine, I know '"'hose love would follO\v me still, Mother o' mine. If I were drowned in the deepest sea, Mother, o' mine, I know whose tears would come down to me, Mother o' mine. If I were damned of body and soul , Mother o' mine, I know whose prayers wou ld make me whole, Mother o' mine. ' ' Wheri Rudyard Kipling wrote hi s poem "Mother 0' Mine," he se"ms to have caught all the vehemence we have ever tried to put into that little word-MOTHER. Because we realize that we owe our very being to our mothers, we in A lph a Sigma A lph a have chosen a special way in wh ich we may reverence mother love . \tVe have provided for auxiliaries known as Mother-Patroness As ociatiOI1s. The e a re composed of the mothers and the patronesses who have received the MotherPatroness Degree, and may be established in any college town where there is a chapter of the sorority . A nd why was such provision made? Because we are aware that no matter how perfectly we may train our bodies-no matter how many honors we may win in the classroom-no matter how faithfully we may try to foll ow the teachings of Christ-vve cannot live the full life unless we have well-directed, wholesome social contacts. It is this social side of life that lph a ig ma A lpha leaves la rgely in the hands of the mot hers

Alpha S igma A lpha ha s a fourfold aim: .the physical, intellectual , piritual, and social development of its members. Since t he social side of its development is left largely 路 in the fos tering hands of the mothers of the chapter, the Mother- Patronesses of Ep ilon Ep- il on Chapter have tri ed to fulfill their miss ion . 'We organized anew last fall vv ith th e following officers: President-Mrs. lice Bo rdenkircher, Secretary and Treasurer -Mr . vV. \tV est, and th e following a re ou r members: Mrs . Richa rdson. Mrs. T. Jensen, Mrs. J. B rickell, M rs. Cross, Mrs . Schlobohm, Mrs. A. H . Gufler. Mrs. Hunter, Mrs. War ren, Mrs . Tho len, Mrs . Ma rmont, Mrs . Thomas. Mrs. Parker, Mrs. \tV. E. Haynes, M rs.

Gamber, \ i\ . F. Stowe, M rs. Perry, M rs. Roberts. On September eig hth we were hostess to about seventy-fi ve girls at a picnic at 'Sodens Grove, and at the annual Chri stmas party we presented the chapter ,,vith twelve lunch cloths and four dozen napkin s with their monogram hand embroidered , and completed th eir et of sil ve r ware vvhich we had started the previous Chri stma s. The Mother-Pat ronesses always welcome suggestions from the girl s as to the var ious v,ray in whi ch we may help. "They might not need me, yet th ey might, I'll let m y heart beat just in sight.

OUR COLUMB US MOTHER-PATRONESS GROUP The 1other- Patroness group of Lam bela Lambda Chapter is the result of the effo rts of two co ll ege members of Lambda Lambda hapter, Et hel Straw and May Rollins. O n May 10, 1925 the mothers were invited to a tea, and th e question of the formation of a Mother's Club was presented to them. The girls entertai ned us throughout th e afternoon, and we finall y decided to hold a m eeting a week later on a Monday evening. At thi s meeting six mothers were present and decided to form th e ::\J other-Patroness organization of Lambda Lambda. Tuesday evening, May twenty-sixth was set for the initiation and election of offic rs.

On Tue day evening the following moth er \\ ere pre nt: Mr . John Hutchfield, Mrs. Nelle C. J one , :Mr . Jacob P. Kai er, Mr . A lbert ingleton, Mr . Henry J. Haa , Mr . D. B. Lehman, Mrs. Zelia \i\ hetzel , and were made charter member of this organization. The initiation wa conducted by May Rollin , pre ident of the college chapter, a i ted by the chapter members, u ing the Mother-Patrone degree se rvice. Each mother was brought to the altar to take her vow by an active member. This was a very impressive and solemn hour for u all. Election of officers was th en held. Can you imagine even women, strangers, electing officers? \1\ ell, we did it, with the assistance of the girls. The re ult vvas as follow : President, Mrs. John Hutchfield, vice-president, Mr . Nellie C. Jones , secretary, Mrs. Jacob P . Kaiser, trea. urer, Mrs. Albert ingleton, publicity, Mrs . Henry ]. Haas. Mrs. Jones, with a committee of two wa asked to draw up a constitution and have it ready for reading at the following meeting. Vve decided that our due would be one dollar per year. 'vVe meet on the first Monday evening of the month at seven-thirty at the chapter house in order that we may keep in touch with the girls and they with us. \ i\fe do not meet in the ummer months. In the fall of the year we give a tea for the mothers of the actives and pledges as a source of increasing our membership, and we take them in any month that they pre ent themselves for membership. Up to this time we have had three teas, three card parties, a pot luck upper, and a rummage ale. Most of the proceeds from these affairs have been given to the girl to be used where they would be needed most. We now have twelve active members all ready to put their shoulders together ~ nd work.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO SECURE MORE ·MOTHERPATRONESSES? In June of 1923 a small group of mothers were gathered together at T emple University. We were there not only to see our daughter graduate, but to become a part of Alpha Sigma A lph a . I well remember the g irl s all dre sed in white, the flow ers that formed the decoration for the room, and the look of anticipa tion on the mother's faces. The ceremony \•vas very imp ress ive, and we were soon bound by a tie never to be broken. Tha t was nearl y four years ago. \ll/e were what you might call "Cha rter Men~be rs," the begininng of what should be a la rge and powerful organization. But let us stop and take an inyenlory of ourselves. Have we done anything in a material way to secure more Mother-Patronesses? Have we been so eng rossed in our family, our various household duties, that we ha v neglected to k eep in direct touch with each other, and especiall y with the girl s of the college chapter? Have we lost all of our interest, or are we inclined to be a little · neglectful? \.. round robin ietter started by the college chapter and circul a ted among the Mother-Patronesses might help to renew old interests and form new friendships. It would, at least, keep u s in touch with each other. On Mother's Day, the Kappa K appa girl s are planning to initiate more mothers. The girls a re a lready making plans for the affair. They are going to look to u for support. \ N e cannot fail them. Several of u s live near enoug h to Philadelphia to be able to be present. \iVhen these new moth ers become a part of the sorority, we all love so well , we want th em to feel the true spi rit that every A lpha Sig Mother-Patroness hould have. They cannot help but receive that feeling on Mother's Day. So as Mother-Patronesses of Kappa Kappa, we must keep the flame kindled, always burning w ith love and friendship from now until the end of time. Mrs. H. Preston Stout, Mother-Patroness of Kappa Kappa Chapter.

MOTHER-P ATRONESSES \ mother-patrones group would be a help to any group, for a mother always understands and is alway willing to help. In the first place a mother-patroness group erves a a medium through \vhich the mothers learn to know each other and they come to knovv what each other's intere t are and consequently their own scope of interest broadened. In the second place they learn more about the orority and incidentally they become more intere ted in "'hat their girl are doing. It trengthens the bond of ympathy and love between a mother and daughter when they are both striving to attain the same things in life. The mother and patrones e come to kno'"' more of what the girl are doing in college, what they are working toward, and what they are really accomplishino路. In the third place the mother are able to help the girl ocially, they are able to help them furnish their orority house. and to help them earn money for the orority. On the whole I think that a mother-patroness group is nece ary for any group of girls who are in a sorority.

Much of the sorority trouble in universities and colleges I S clue to old antipathies, fo stered by generations of co llege students, who have ca rried over old grudges, and \â&#x20AC;˘vho keep alive old hate . This discord between organizations that should be friend ly has often been a cause for the abolition of Greek-letter societies, or for the curtailing of their activities. Today in the teachers colleges, there are several antagonisms that have been unwisely encouraged. When there is a feeling of distru t on the part of one so rority toward another, there can not be the hearty co-operation that should always exist, when the welfare of the general student body must be taken into consideration, nor can th ere be the cordial entente that will result in wi e and non-irritating panhellenic rules. A lpha S igma A lpha is a convert to the idea that all societies on a given campus are really local organizations, so far as the college itself is co ncerned. It believes, therefore, that locals should have an equal voice in determining student policies. There is no reason why the representative of a local society is not just as well qualified to determine what is best for the college and the student body as is a representative of a chapter of a N ational.

EDUCATIONAL SORORITIES Educational Sororities came into existence about the same time as Academic Sororities. The first ones were founded in New York State about 1870. Other were established in the normal schools of New York in the '80s. The next state to take up the idea were Michigan and \ rirginia. Two Michigan societie that have continued until the present clay are Pi Kappa Sigma and Alpha Sigma Tau. Two Virginia sororities, both of them very well known, are Alpha Sigma Alpha and Sigma Sigma Sigma. 1\Iissouri established societies about the same time, but affiliated later with the two Virginia societies. The New York organization confined themselves to their own state, and have in some instances affiliated with the more vigorous nationals. lVIiami University in Ohio and the Kansas State Teachers College at Emporia have also had educational societies for a great many years, and both contributed important nationals,-1\Iiami being the mother of Delta Sigma Epsilon and Pi Delta Theta, ancl Emporia being the birthplace of Theta Sigma Upsilon. \tVhen the Academic Sororities began to expand, a few of them placed chapters in normal schools, but eventually decided to confine themselves to the liberal arts college, and so recalled the charters of those chapters that were located in other types of institutions. This decision on their part was the reason for the establishment of all Educational Sororities founded since 1890. As the latter endeavored to expand, they came across groups that were hopeful of receiving charters from Academic Sororities, and so it was necessary to come to some sort of agreement with the Academic Sororities. This understanding was reached between the Association of Educational Sororities and the 1'\ational Panhellenic Congress. Under this agreement, it is expected that each will refrain from infringing on the territory of the other. The agreement was put to the test about ten years ago, when an academic sorority placed a chapter in a teachers college. The ociety in question \vas given just one week to recall the charter. It did so by wire in two clays. Since that time, there has never been the slightest friction between academic and educational nationals. A member of an educational sorority, who transfer to a college of liberal arts. may join any campus society, from which an invitation has be e11

received. T hi s ame rule hold o路oocl in the ca e of the member of an academi c national who matriculates at a teacher 路 coll ege. There is probably no educati onal orority that ha not on its roll members of academi c ororiti e . T he old er ed ucational national have co res of member who also belong to academ ic soCletles. A lthough there is thi ve rv cordial feeling bet\\ een _' cademic Sororities and Educational ororitie , and although there is a very general understanding of the fact that the t'vvo types of organization are entirely di stinct, there i some mi sunderstanding in ome teacher college , and this article ha been prepared to make clear the situation, as it is at present. The faculties of some teachers college have he itated to admit educational national , because they have hopes of eventuall y getting their institutions on the roll of P hi Beta Kappa, of the American ssociation of U niversity \iVomen , or of other imilar organizations, whose recognition would place those teach er colleges on a par educationally with universities. These facultie think that thi s recognition would so raise their instituti ons in the estimation of academic sororities that charter grants would follow. There is one important fact that has been overlooked by the faculties that have followed that course of rea oning. If the academic sororitie had had any desire to extend member hip to those choosing education as their profess ion, they would have granted charter long ago to groups of women in school of education connected vvith the very universities in which tl;ey already have chapters. The e school of education are on a par with the colleges of liberal arts. as everybody knows. There are now eight university schools of educati on on th e roll s of educational nationals. O thers are to be added in the very near future. There are hundred of students in these uni versity chools of educati on who would have been denied affiliati on with a national, had it not been for the fact that educational national have been e. tabli heel to take care of women student in these special school. . If academic ororities can not or will not provide fo r women . tudent in uni versity chools of ed ucation, i it reaonable to expect that they will grant charters to any teachers coll ege? The ve ry fact that educational nationals have been welcomed at univer ity chool of education how very clearly that t hey are ranked by the facultie of tho e universiti e a on a par with th academic . ororiti e. . If univeL ity author iti e

rank educational sororities, why should faculties of teachers colleges hesitate to open the door to these educational nationals, and thu permit their women students to enjoy the privileges that come with nati onal affiliation, privileges that are everywhere regarded as the right o f college women? Let us suppose, just for the sake of argument, that the time will come when academic sororities will undergo a complete change of heart in this manner, and will decide to grant charters to university schools of education and to teachers colleges. Such a decision would put an end to the agreement now existing between the academic national s and the educational nationals, and would immediatel y transform the academic and the educational nationals into the same type, into what might be called ''general " sororities . The educational nationals are on a par, st ructurall y and ritualistically with the academic sororities. In many cases, the educational sororities are older than the academic ocieties ' and on a stronger financial basis. Some of the educational sororities have had for years the supervision of mature women wh o are members of a cademic sororities and who have held office on the National Council s of famous academic so rorities . These women naturally perfer to keep the educational sorority di stinct from the A cademic so rority, ( 1) because they believe that the interests of women students in teachers colleges and university schools of educati on are best served by a professional sorority, and ( 2 ) because so many hundreds of women are member of both academic and educational sororities. Decause the educati onal sorority has to date confined its membership to those who expect to teach , and who are, th erefor e, to become the guides and inspirers of youth , it has come to pass ve ry naturally that the educati onal sorority has demanded very high standards of those whom it wou ld choo e for member ship . :\ o student may become a member of any educational sorority, tmless she has attained a grade of 80% fo r one semester' s work . fter initiation , she mu st maintain that average, or forfeit membership. S moking and drinking are prohibited. The breaking of college rules and the violati on of accepted conventions automaticallv terminate membership. There is no national sorority, other than the educational, that holds its members to such stri ct accountability. T he characte r and purpose of the educational sorority has been one of the reasons, of course, for its ready \< velcome by

Some of us are fortunate enough to belong to a sorority or club some kind , and with this closer association we learn to know each other better. Great accomplishments may be made, many duties performed, but it is not until members of an organizatiot~ such as Alpha Sigma Alpha have come and gone that \Ve really truly appreciate them. Five years ago Kappa Kappa added a name to her list which at the time was not particularly outstanding but was written on the pages of initiates. Two years passed during which time that member was taking a secondary part and was voicing ar~ outstanding opinion, but it was not until her Junior year in college that this A lpha Sig assumed a very responsible duty and continued through her senior year.

We are very proud to be able to say that the standards of scholarship have been raised with the coming of our new president, David Allen A nderson, Ph.D . The standards of Kent State have been rai sed to such an extent that colleges all over the state recognize now the work credited a student from this school as up to par. As Kent State is a teacher's college, it is especially necessary that its graduates shall be capable, as the future culture of man y children depends in part on this. A teacher not sound in information, not accurate in expression and calculation. not capable of logical thinking, or feeble in the application of knowledge will not promote the education of elementary or high school pupils in a high degree. All the material which is needed to form the foundation of a good teacher is being offered in Kent State College this year. Aside from new and better standards Kent State College is erecti ng two beautiful new buildings. The vVilliam A. Cluff Teacher Training Btiilding is expected to be ready for occupancy at the opening of the summer term in 1927. It will provide adequate quarters for a complete training department, including kindergarten, elementary grades, and both junior and senior high schools. W hen the legi lature recently granted $250,000. for a new library, the news was received with joy by the students and faculty who knev.r the handicaps and hardships which have been occasioned by the forced use of a building originally designed for offices. These cramped quarters have often caused a great deal of dissatisfaction among the students. The new library will join Science Hall and be connected to it by a corridor. It will be a two story building with a hundred and twenty-five foot front. The first floor will contain the reading room and a stack with a capacity for 100,000 volumes. The size of this room may be judged by the fact that the present stack room is crowded far beyond capacity with the present 28,000 volumes in the library. The second floor will be sectioned off into seminar rooms for the use of faculty and students who are doing special and advanced work. This added convenience will do much towards increasing the value of the library. So . we see that day by day our school is improving. LOIS

Three of our girls have recently received special honors. Wilma Hutchison has been invited to become a member of Kappa Delta Pi, and Martha Wadsworth and Katherine Long have received bids from Phi Gamma Phi, an honorary French society. We are at present hard at work making plans for Mother's Day. Vve are expecting nearly all our mothers to be here on that day. Therefore we are planning to give them the MotherPatroness degree. On Sunday morning we will entertain them with a breakfast on the bluffs. This is a beautiful place a half mile from the college grounds. We wish to show our mothers that we have not forgotten how to cook. 路 At noon we are giving a banquet at the Tallawanda Tea Room in their honor. Alpha Alpha wishes to announce the recent pledging of Mildred Smithers, Dorothy Grof, and Eleanor Schnorrenberg. Alpha Alpha has also been fortunate enough to secure as a patroness Miss Blanche McDill. Virginia Stewart.

ALPHA BETA CHAPTER The sp ring quarter came to a close Friday, February twentyfifth. The spring quarter started Tuesday, March first, Mm~day being set for registration. The winter quarter has been a very successful and enjoyable one for the Alpha Sigmas. We initiated our eight fine pledges Saturday morning, February twelfth, at the Sorority home. Following the initiation ''" e went to the Stevenson Hotel where a lovely breakfast was served. Yellow jonquils decorated the tables. An old fashioned garden formed the background for our annual Valentine dinner dance given at the Traveler's Hotel, on February twelfth, which, by the way, was one of the prettiest social affairs that has been given in Kirksville this year. The large dining room had been transformed into a veritable garden of flowers. One corner of the room had been decorated to resemble a summer house, with white lattice work overrun with hollyhocks and wisteria. The large arch was especially pretty, with its heavy clusters of purple and lavender wisteria. Punch was served here. In the opposite corner the orchestra was enclosed by a white picket fence, over which rambler roses trailed. A tall

The place cards were a combination of \ alentine and old-fashioned girls. "Red'' Jones' orchestra furni heel musi during the dinner hour, and al o for the dance which followed. The dance opened with a grand march led by Dr. and Mr . F. L. Joi-ris. There was a 路pot light, or elimination dance, in which the spotlight wa turned on each couple and a the light fell upon a couple, they retired from the floor. The la t couple on the floor received a heart-shaped box of candy for a prize. There was al o a balloon dance, in which gay colored balloon were given to the dancers. In another dance the gentlemen were given favors of cigarettes, the box being camouflaged in reel wrapping and attached to a "dusky" maiden, cleverly fashioned on a reel heart. The favors were given out by Geraldine and .r acline Bondurant, who also presided at the punch bowl. The little girl were dressed in old-fashioned costume and made an attractive picture that fitted in nicely with the decorative scheme. Out-of-town gue ts who were here for the dance were: nnabell Wayland and Emma Self of Moberly; irginia Roman , Mexico; Irmine Smythe, St . Jo eph; Lettie l\Ierrick, I eokuk, Iowa; Mr. and Irs.

One of the most delightful affairs during this month was the Valentine Tea Dance given Friday afternoon, February eleventh. The grotto of the club house was decorated with red hearts and Valentines to carry out the spirit of St. Valentine's Day. The Rustlers played for dancing. Guests at the tea included members 路 of all the Greek letter organizations on the campus. A very clever effect was carried out by the Valentine motif over the lights. Red hearts were placed over the lights, each fraternity and sorority symbol in Greek letters were represented on the hearts, serving the purpose of shades. Alpha Sig's held as a benefit picture, "The Silent Lover." Various college groups as well as members of sororities and fraternities made up line parties to the entertainment. We cleared over $35.00. Mr. Morrison, manager 路of the theatre, in appreciation of our cooperation in selling tickets invited us to be his guests at the theatre the f?llowing Monday. Beta Beta will give their annual winter dance in the club house on Friday, March fourth. A n interesting feature in our College is a literature class, conducted by Dr. E. A. Cross. The best in novels, plays, and short stories are read by Dr. Cross during the hour. The course was originally planned for students of English 15, but has recently been extended two periods a week to accommodate other people who are interested in popular literature. Alpha Sigma Alpha was much in the limelight in the College social affairs. Saturday, February twenty-sixth, Marion Wierman, was Prom Queen. Marion was chosen for this honor by \1\Talter Schlosser, president of the Junior Class. The Junior Prom, one of the biggest social events of the year was also attended by many other Alpha Sigs. Alpha Sig is also carrying off other honors. Lillian rnold and Dorothy Powell, two of our members are on the debating squad, and will leave for Colorado Springs for debate. \1\Te wish them all success . Our mothers mean much to us, our sorority means much to us, so will it not be wonderful to have both joined into a mutual bond of fellowship? Beta Beta is planning soon to entertain all mothers of Beta Beta girls. Invitations will be sent to the mothers of the girls.

February was an important month in both sorority and school activities. The first event was a luncheon with Louise Gla er. Lela Hardy, Doris Parsons, and Elsie 0 hel as hostesses. At these bi-monthly affairs, the girls enjoy not only the deliciously appetizing food, but also the quiet fe llowship around the quartet tables in the sorority room. The annual Northwestern Invitational Ba ketball Tournament was the big event of February . Fifty- ix team were entered, and the tourney lasted from Tue day afternoon, February fifteenth, to the next aturday night. The Panhellenic had the exclusive right to sell things other than ice cream, and the lpha Sigs worked every day with the girls from the other ororitie . Many lpha Sig worked in the Home Economic Department under the direction of M iss Shattuck, who upervised the prep路 aration of over 3,000 meal durino路 the week. The girl in the college band had their share in helpina to furnish mu ic for the occa ion. From all accounts the tournament wa the large t and mo t ucce fu l ever held at Jorthwe tern . The Iva girls and the Cherokee boys were the winners of the beautiful trophie while the De N oya girls and the Jefferson Con olidated boy were runners-up. lpha igma lpha was delighted on Thur day of the tournament week to learn that Lenore Kubic had accepted a bid. he is a very charming girl, and is mu ical a well, for he play fir t Yiolin in the co ll ege orche tra . fonday night, February twenty-fir t, a line party to the Chi Delta Pi play, "In the Next Room.'

Lambda Sigma and Chi Delta Pi are th eir names. It is said that the latter will soon be nationalized. The night of February twenty-second saw a reproduction of the National Constitutional Convention given under the direction of the Ranger History Club. It was presented to a packed auditorium. Some of the parts were exceptionally well played. The Ranger basketball squad, which was so successful last year, has been unfortunate in losing most of the games played this year. This was caused by the loss of two of last year's best players, who joined the professional team known as Oleson's Swedes, which team was defeated by the Rangers last year. Amata Camp Slemmer, one of our graduate members, is now in town, and . attended the last sorority luncheon. February twenty-third was the eleventh anniversary of Gamma Gamma chapter, and the luncheon the next day was a "special" one in hQnor of this, as well as Washington's birthday. The table decorations, color scheme, and dessert carried out the Washington's Birthday idea. The place cards were each decoated with a hand painted Colonial boy standing near a hatchet. The dessert of cherry pie with whipped cream also called to mind the well-known story concerning Washington. Miss Shockley, Beula Farrand, Mary Hoover, and Helen Deal were the hostesses. Alpha Sigma Alpha was very much shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Mrs. Frank Munson, a patroness of Gamma Gamma chapter. Before her marriage, Mrs. Munson was Miss Mary Abrams, a teacher in the college, a member of the old Sorosis Club, and one of the first to be initiated when Gamma Gamma chapter was installed.

DEL TA DEL TA CH AP TER The past month has been a very eventful one for Delta Delta chapter. It has afforded us many good times and brought us much happiness. Immediately after the opening of the second semester m February we began to look around for orne desirable pledges. There were quite a few new girls on the campu , and quite a few who had been here the whole year, but with whom we had


44

THE PH E IX

only recently become acquainted. \ e have no formal ru hing period during the econd e1i1e ter,· o we ar permitted to follow our own idea entirely. We entertained with two informal partie · in our room in Sorority Hall. The fir t wa a dancing party, and the econd was a bridge party. Doth were highly uccessful , • and served their purpose, for we were able to become very well acquainted with the girls. On February twenty-second, ·which wa a holiday for us we entertained again in the . S. . room with an informal tea. vVe had a delightful time, and the guests enjoyed themselves so much that we stayed quite late. As a re ult of our econd semester partie we held pledging on March fir t for the following girls : Dolores Kimbell-"Dolly" ..... .. ... . New Lexington, Ohio Dorothy Perkins-"Dot" ... . ............. Plain City, Ohio Eloise Ralph ..... .. . . ....... . . . .. .. .... . Gallipolis, Ohio The fir t week of March was a true A. . A. week-and the happiest one of the year. It began, of course, with pledging. Every evening during the week we held an . S. . . meeting, for it was the week preceding initiation, and we felt that it hould be spent in becoming better acquainted with our si ter , and in timulating true Alpha ig fellowship. On Wednesday night the girls who were to be initiated-eight in number-entertained the actives and new pledge with a pread. We had a jolly time, and the girls proved to be plendid hostesses. On Thursday evening, the actives, not to be outdone by pledges, entertained the pledges with a spread at iliss Garber's apartment. fter we had eaten we sat around the fireplace and ang . S. . and Ohio University song until v\ e had to run in order to get into the dormitories on time. It wa an evening which \'\ e hated to see go, for in our crowded college life we find little time to so enjoy our elve . Friday evening afforded the climax for the week. ~ilr . Garret, one of our patronesses, offered u the privilege of her home for what is termed on our campus a "Hou e Party." It really j u t an informal house dance for member of the chapter and their boy friend . We had a fine three-piece orche tra, a congenial crowd, and a beautiful pring evenino-. \ hat could afford a better etting? During the ev-ening the pledge ~ who were to be initiated were


THE PHOENIX

45

told to appear at the homes of their sponsors, dressed in white, at eight o'clock the next morning. This was the first information they received as to the time of initiation, and then they were lightly misled. \i\Then the girls arrived next morning they were given the Symbolism and other material 路which we deemed advisable, and were permitted to spend the morning in solitude, reading and contemplating. At eleven o'clock we all met at the Windsor Tea Room for an informal luncheon, each pledge being the guest of her sponsor. At one o'clock they accompanied us to sorority hall, where they were initiated into full membership. At six o'clock Saturday evening the eight initiates and three pledges were guests of honor at a formal dinr1er at the Hotel Berry. Following the dinner ' '" e spent some time in singing some of our prettiest songs. The week ended as it should with the chapter attending chui路ch in a body Sunday , morning. Could any group have had a more profitable and pleasant week than the one which vve have just concluded? "\1\Te doubt that such would be possible. \i\1 e gave you the names of our initiates when they were pledged in October, but we want you to know a little more about them now that we know them better. Never has a better class been received into Delta Delta chapter. Though we will lack the strength of a riumber of Seniors next year our material in the Sophomore and Junior classes will be such that it should be Delta Delta's best year. Jane Dorrance comes from East Liverpool, Ohio, where Delta Delta can soon organize an Ex-Collegio chapter, for it is Alpha Sigma Alpha territory. Jane is one of four Alpha Sigs in the Ohio University Girls' Glee Club. (By the way, A. S. A . has the record representation in the Glee Club. ) Harriet Edwards is a Sophomore, having come to Ohio mversity from Oberlin College. Harriet received the highest average (scholastic) in the chapter last semester, and we are hoping that he might win the Sophomore Scholarship Cup offered by A lpha Delta Pi to the Sophomore girl, regardless of affiliation, receiving the highest scholastic average for the year. Harriet is one of our many pianists. Her home is in Mineral City. Lucille Keister is from Wooster, Ohio, and is a worthy addition to the chapter. She is a brunette, quite Spanish in type,

and very good looking. Her grade were excellent, and her ability i quite exten ive. \\ e expect her to go far. Eleanor Loyd is our musical genius. Every time one look at Eleanor her thought turn toward the piano. The Alpha ig room ha become the mo t popular place when Eleanor i at the piano, which is quite often. Girl from other group come into our room to enjoy the mu ic and to dance. The boy , who are forbidden in the Hall, are usually congregated under the window, enthusiastically applauding, and calling out their ''reque ted number ." Eleanor wrote an A. . song , word and mu ic, which we think is quite the prettiest one we have. Dr. Robin on, head of the College of Music, is arranging it in four part for girls' voices, so we may u e it in the Sorority Song Fe t to be held under the auspices of the Rotary Club may fifth. If it i 路 at all possible we shall have copies made for the other chapter . for we do so \vant you all to enjoy it, too. Gwendolyn O'Hara is another of our Wellsville girls. aying she is from 'vVellsville should be quite sufficient, for we have claimed some of our best material in the past from that little city. Gwendolyn is, in years, our baby, but one would never know it. She was president of the pledge organization and carried well her re ponsibility. Helen Round, another \tVell ville girl, is true to type. We are counting much 0n Helen , for her originality, and her keen judgment will make her invaluable in rushing. She is able to accept respon ibility in an unusual manner. Reba hafer is an Athens girl, and a mighty loyal lpha ig. It eem that Reba is constantly thinking up ome plan by which the chapter might be improved. s for idea a to money-making, Reba is quite the financier. l\!Iary Alice \ irtue Mount Gilead, carne well her name . .Yiary lice is very quiet, but when he doe peak everyone might well li ten, for it will be worth while. he will make a plendicl lpha 1g.

EPSILON EPSILON CHAPTER Our Valentine formal was as pretty and successful this year , I believe, as usual. The Broadview was the scene of the party, and we had very good music, which, with the red and white decorations and the pretty dresses of the girls, made it an artistic occasion. Initiation was of course quite an occasion. Thirteen of the girls were initiated-the first service of that sort which had been held in our new house. VVe found it a very suitably arranged place to hold initiation. Our new initiates are: Constance Ross, Mary Stewart, Virginia Ford, Beth Bauman, Ruth Gamber, Hazel Kyle, Marie Roberts, Marion Perry, Helen Stowe, Georgia Hildreth, Helen Hammond, Frances Putnam, and Ruth Nation. ~-\fter the ervice, a banquet was held for the new actives at Newman's Tea Room. Toasts were given by Miss Strouse, Violet Hassler, Louise Bauman, and Constance Ross. The tables were tastefully decorated with yellow flowers and candles. VVe are very sorry to lose Elizabeth Watson, our treasurer, \â&#x20AC;˘vho has gone to Huntington, West Virginia, to be with her parents, who formerly lived in \tVichita. We hope Elizabeth vvill like her new home, but we disliked to see her go. Ruth Gamber has been elected to succeed Elizabeth in the chapter treasurership. Ruth assisted Elizabeth in her accounts, so the work will not be entirely new to her, and we are sure that she will acquit herseif well in the position. Tho e who are receiving degrees or certificates are now eagerly looking for teaching positions for next year. The Appointment Bureau here at school has a large number of teachers to place, but there are many calls from school superintendent3, also , so most of the would-be teachers are not discouraged as yet. There have been a good many fine entertainments here in Emporia this year. "Student Prince" was here not long ago, and Lew Sarett, the noted poet, woodsman, and teacher, gave a lee-

Our own school band playe l in uch a manner the other night that we felt very proud indeed to think our 1\hL ic Department cou ld produce uch music. We have not had many social events thi year, a we felt that the first year of our attempt at purchasing a hou e must ee u spending money rather carefull y. But those parties that we have had have been good ones, and perhaps next year we can have them oftener. \i\ e wi ll doubtless have a farewell party in the late pring, but plans for this have not been laid as vet.

ZETA ZETA CHAPTER t. \ ·a!en tine's birthday was celebrated this year by a erie of events in Zeta Zeta. On Friday evening a formal dance wa held in the Elks Club. This affair was given by the Patrone e and the Warrensburg alumnce. Thirty-five couples, which included the active chapter, out-of-town alumnce and friends had a very happy time in the beautifully decorated hall. Punch wa se rved during the evening and a delicious plate lunch was erved. On Saturday evening the initiation ·e rvice "'ere l~eld in the sorority rooms.

After this everyone attended the play "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves" given by Tony Sarg' marionette . The school year of 1926-27 has been full of good time and wonderful entertainment for us. The Artists' course was even more splendid this year than ever before. \file had delightful entertainment by great arti t such as Galli-Curci, and the DennisSha\vn dancers.

Brandenburg; ~Tel足 come, Ardis Monroe; Response, Dr. G. W. \i\Teecle; Solo, Viola Lockrie; Reading, Julia Matthews; Remarks, Miss Roseberry. The gentlemen guests received favors of comb and nail file in a hand tooled leather case bearing the sorority letters. Our patronesses were given bright handkerchiefs in a fancy valentine holder. The other rooms were decorated with reel and white streamers hanging from the ceiling across the hall. Around the orchestra was a lattice work of red and white. The walls and windows were covered with red hearts. The novelty dances "Have a Heart" and "Whose" also expressed the valentine idea. Rook was played in one of the rooms . Punch and reel candy hearts were served throughout the evening. We had a very pretty initiation on Sunday, I'ebruary sixth, at 7 :30 in the morning. The following girls were initiated: Anna l\1ontgomery, Dorothy ~Teecle, Milch-eel Large, Hazel Howell, Mary Cochran, Viola Lockrie, Rebecca Roseberry. and Julia Matthews. The Lambda Phi Delta invited the sororities and fraternities on the campus to their open house March first. School was completely forgotten on the K. S. T . C. of Pittsburg campus March first. Why? Because we won the Kansas Basketball Conference! School was let out in the afternoon, and a large group of students met the train bringing that team that we are all so proud of home from their last game which wa. College of Emporia.

Eta Eta is planning a big Home Coming and house party on April twenty-third. Ten girls have already written that they were coming and we expect many others . I ear May eighth, Eta Eta i 路 planning to have their MotherPatroness initiation. The value of a :Mother-Patroness group is to put the mothers and daughters in the same organization, give the mothers a more clear understanding of the sorority, and to give the mothers the opportunity to meet their daughter's friends and their mothers.

THETA THETA CHAPTER Theta Theta's Valentine Tea was entirely a success. Dean Franklin, who was invited as our guest of honor, gave a short informal talk telling about her aims and the aims of the University in general for the future. She believed in doing all possible towards the d~velopment of an all university spirit, instead of the many school spirits which now exist. The girl s enjoyed the talk immensely. The Vice-President, Evelyn Lindell, then poured tea from a table decorated with red carnations. Cakes and little reel hearts were served. Everything was in keeping with the spirit of the clay. I'm quite sure that our exemplar, St. Valentine, was here in spirit to make the tea the success that it was. March tenth, Theta Theta held the second regular meeting for the month. Plans were made for Mother's Day. All mothers are to be invited to take the Mother-Patroness Degree the Sunday before or after Mother's Day. We believe that we should bring our mothers into as close contact with the Sorority as possible. Last year, Mrs. A. D. Howlett and Mrs. Hunt were given the Mother-Patroness Degree. The service was very lovely and in some way, it made us realize to an even greater extent how much our mothers do and ought to mean to us. Just to ~now that they as a group stand back of us in Sorority as in other things is an inspiration to make that' Sorority worth while. Elizabeth Curtis.

Representatives from Delta Sigma Epsilon and all Pi Kappa Sigma's were also present. We enjoy having these girls at our house.

KAPPA KAPPA CHAPTER February is passed, and rushing season is over. If you could have seen just how, busy Kappa Kappa girls have been the past month making arrangements for parties, working on every detail, making necessary adaptations at the last moment, and finally the excitement we felt on the nights of the parties; then you would realize what a breathless sensation the thought of the above sentence gives us. February is also the month of our exemp lar, St. Valentine, and on his birthday, Nu N u entertained us at a party held in the Art Gallery of Drexel Hall . We played several little contest games that brought forth many a laugh, because they were games we had often played when children, and every one tried to score the largest number of points. Then, too , we enjoyed seeing the Nu Nu girls play for u the two sketches they had presented at their rush party. We were glad to be with Drexel again, and meet the new girls they had just pledged. Our first rush event was a Valentine-Dinner party held at the home of Mrs. John Smaltz, one of our honorary members. Mrs . Charles E . Beury and Mrs . Smaltz were the hostesses of the evening. We were glad that both Dr. Buery, president, and Dr. Carnell, associate-president of the University, could be there. The tables looked beautiful, for in the center of each one was a ta)l red c.a ndle with green cypress twined around it, and clever reel favors at each place. The delicious menu consisted of : cream of tomato soup, chicken croquettes, escalloped potatoes, peas, rolls, celery and olives, ice-cream and angel food cake.

fter dinner ome of the girls pre ented ''The Fatal Que 路t," and the audience applauded enthu iastically. \\ e played game. appropriate for a \ alentine party, and everyone had a jolly time. t the beginning of the evening each girl wa given ten heart拢 and every time she an werecl anyone by merely aying "ye 路路 01 "no," he had to acrifice a heart. .i\Iany were cauaht and the game occasioned much laughter until at the end of the evening, the prize was given to the holder of the greate t number of hearts. v\ e were very much grieved that ).Ir . Doyle could not be with us at the party. he was called to Ohio by the death of her brother, and had to be away for a week. For the second party we took the rushee to ee Colette at the Forrest Theatre. The invitations were on buff cards and had I ierrot and Pierette figures in silhouette, with the invitation in verse. The musical comedy was clever and our gue ts seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. The costumes of the dancers were very artistic, and the stage colorings most beautiful. Vve had places reserved at Huylers and arranged to have roses at each table, o after the show we went there to eat. everal of the alumnc.e were here for the occasion, and M iss Morrissy and Miss Riley were our guests. Sunday afternoon, Alpha Sigma Alpha gave a tea in honor of l\1iss Morrissy, National President of Pi Lambda igma, and al o iiss Riley. The guests included member and advisors from each orority on the campus, and a group of non- orority Catholic girls. We have enjoyed having Miss Morrissy and l\1is Riley with us. We plan to make Mother's clay an important occasion thi pring. s many of the girl who can will have their mothers here, and we v. ill make it a Mother-Patroness day. In the morning we plan to go to church, and then have dinner together in the Faculty Dining Room. In the afternoon will be the 1otherPatrones Service, followed by a tea. Tho e who have already taken thi degree will be asked, and we want the Alumnc.e to bring their mothers. We may have the service at the home of one of our honorary members, and then that "ill be an ideal etting for this meeting of the mothers and daughter of the orority.

1n our sorority. So often when we leave home for our four years of college, we forget that our mothers are deeply interested in all our activities, and now they can actually become a part of the organization that means so much to our happiness and well-being at school. Frances Shirley. LAMBDA LAMBDA . CHAPTER

There exists at present a close relationship between our l\Iother-Patroness group and our Lambda Lambda chapter. Our mothers have held benefit bridge parties, rummage sales and the like by which method they made money to help us furnish our house. At present new lamps, rugs, curtains, kitchen utensils, and pieces of furniture are now found in 路our chapter house. It puts in the house a home-like atmosphere which makes all of the out of town girls want to room there. Another value df the Mother-Patroness Club is that they give us valuable advice which guides us in making the right decisions . . We have found that things always go more smoothly as soon as our mothers think matters over and give us a few suggestions. Vve realize every day how very indispensable our mothers are to us and how much they have done. At the meeting of our Mother-Patroness group held February twenty-second, new officers were chosen. They are: Mrs. J. P. Kaiser, president; Mrs . Wm. \iVebster, vice president; and Mrs. A. Singleton, secretary. This year we are going to hold our annual Mother's Day tea at the chapter house. All mothers will be invited. Vve have also been considering a new idea. That is of Lambda Lambda sending a Mother's Day card to each girl's mother. We hope that in this way we can express our appreciation to our mothers. We sincerely believe that Abraham Lincoln sums it up when he says "All I am or ever hope to be I owe to my mother." On March 7, 1927, five Ohio State University students were elected by popular vote as members of the Education Council. Two of the three girls chosen were Lambda Lambda girls . They are Lucile Walters, our president, and Evelyn Whet el, our treasurer. This is the first time that an Education Council has been organized on our campus. Our pledges held a subscription cla11ee Saturday, March twelfth.

On November twentieth we pledged our girls at the home of Blanche v alters. That same day was the Gala Day of our homecoming week-end, when our college played Kalamazoo College. 11 the house competed lpha Sigma lpha is proud to say that they won in decorating. third prize, with an imitation grave yard, each tombstone bearing the name of one Kalamazoo player. 1onday, ovember twenty-ninth, the pledges entertained the members at the home of Mrs. Howard Chapin, an aunt of one of the pledges.

Miss Grace Fultz kindly consented to talk to the girls, so we were fortunate in having her on the program. She spoke on "The Landing," but advised us as Alpha Sigs that there is no landing. Vve must keep right on "flying." June Pooler sang two appropriate numbers. It seemed good to have Ruth Bayler back again for initiation. She is having great success teaching a class of boys in the junior high school at River Rouge, a suburb of Detroit. l\1iss Bayler concluded the program with a speech on " Other Flights." The new girls are: Helen Burkanks, Ypsilanti; Donna Cummings, Fenton; Elizabeth Ellison, Montgomery, A labama; Marion Evans, Millington; Jane Fairbanks, Ypsilanti; Leona Gutschaw, Mt. Clemens; Lois Guy, Coloma; Lucile Kunkle, Munson. M u M u chapter has started a series of fellowship dinners to be carried on informally every few weeks at various tea rooms and restaurants. We have been attending some local church in a body every two weeks. Our patronesses have certainly caught the Alpha Sig spirit. In February, Mrs. Guy Kennedy entertained us at a formal valentine dinner at her lovely new home. Then later in the month, l\!Irs. Harry Smith entertained the sorority at a bridge luncheon. The luncheon was served by both Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Kennedy. It being Mrs. Smith's birthday, she was presented with a beautiful birthday cake made by Mrs. Kennedy, and a bouquet of daffodils from the girls. Following the luncheon, progressive bridge was played at five tables. The girl at each table who held high score received a small bouquet of spnng flowers. So we are having a busy year.

NU NU CHAPTER February is a short month-but how much is crowded into it At least, so it seemed this year. Drexel started off the month with its annual Military Ball on February fourth in the Gold Room of the Elk's Club.

OMICRON OMICRON CHAPTER

Omicron Omicron is quite the busy college group these clays. 'vVe celebrated the birthday of St. Valentine with a heart party at the home of Jean Gorham in Kent. After an interesting evening of hearts, the Alpha Sigs demolished with surprising alacrity an attractive mountain of sandwiches, to say nothing of stacks of olives and pickles, and much coffee and cake, with many kinds of candies to suit everyone's taste. Omicron Omicron sponsored a photoplay at one of the local theatres on February twenty-seventh. The picture selected was "Paradise" starring Richard Dix. It was a very amusing production, and attracted a full house. Omicron 路 Omicron cleared over forty dollars. As that was the time set for our rush party, we entertained earlier in the evening with a dinner for five rushees and followed the dinner with an en masse attendance at the show . Each of our guests was given roses, and a special feature of the dinner was a sorority cake decorated \vith our letters and pin, and the words, Kent State College. During the last week-end in February the Youngstown members of Omicron Omicron held a reunion for all members. Friday night Kathryn Greene held an informal mixed bridge at her home. This was followed on Saturday by a luncheon bridge at a tea room. The hostesses were Mary Hopton, Margaret Hughes, and Eleanor Rowney. The tables were artistically decorated with Alpha Sig colors, and with center pieces of pink tulips . High score honors fell to 1\l[rs. Marie Wolcott and Kay Greene. That evening a dinner was given in the home of Mary Hopton, after which the evening was spent at the Hoo-Doo Club Dance. Those who attended were enthusiastic in expressing their gratitude for such an utterly enjoyable week-end. A further treat was in store for us in the substantial shape of an attractive dinner at the home of Mrs . Thompson of Kent on March third . The Omicron Omicron sponsors were hostesses and the affair was indeed a delightful one. A gold and green color scheme was carried out in the four-course dinner, which was followed by an evening of bridge. At score counting Hazel Keener carried off the award, an attractive vanity case. Six pledges were initiated on March sixth . They are: Eleanor Rowney, Alice Stengill, Antoinette L ink, Happy Sapp, Eleanor Drake, and Helen Dungan. A lice ftif . Young.

Monday evening, February the fourteenth, we held our formal initiation at Betty Fellow's home.

the party broke up, blankets, cameras, hats, bathing suits, and whatnot were being carried to the cars and packed for about an hour before everyone left. Wednesday evening, March second we gave a party in the apartment for the rushees. Under the direction of Martha Vawter we played a number of interesting games, then we played cards for a while and refreshments were served. For refreshments we had fruit salad, sandwiches, and punch and fudge. After the girls had left the members took a vote on them and it was favorable for all the girls who had been present, and we planned to send out the bids this week and also planned to have our ribbon pledge next Monday evening.

PI PI CHAPTER May Brill has been elected Managing Editor of the Elms which is the year book of the Senior Class. The Iormal school held their annual Senior Prom at the Twentieth Century Club on Friday, February fifth, and every one who attended it said that they had a most charming evening. Our last rush party was Saturday, February twenty-fifth, closing the season. It was a Medieval Party. The invitations were darling hand painted cards with a bright colored page boy sketched on them who held a scroll with the invitation lettered on it. 'Ne called for each of the rushees personally and escorted them to the dinner which was at the Lenox Hotel. At each girl's place was found the larger, second cousin of the page on the invitation with the girl's name and the menu on it. The dainty little corsp.ges which were also found there were received with much enthusiasm. After dinner we all went clown to the Gray Room where the following program was given: Ethelbert and the Reel Cross Knight A joust between Bub and Ella, with the aid of some helmets, swords, and two charmingly inconsistent horses made of paper boxes, broom sticks and much gilt paper. The battle waged long and merciless and did not end until one knight killed the other, and set his foot on his victim's recumbent form , shouting at the same time: "The Red Cross Knight is dead." He then assisted his victim to rise, and they galloped out of the room together.

of which Pi Pi excels, and vvas followed by a business meeting. It was then that we older girls received our first glimpse of the finest kind of enthusiasm and the most loyal cooperation, represented by these new girls whom we have chosen to uphold the ideals of Alpha Sigma Alpha. They were brimful of new ideas, and enthusiastic over old ideas. What joy! It is our contention that no place is as ideal as a house party to really become intimately acquainted with a group of girls, so, following our contention, we planned to have the Phoenix degree given during a house party at Bub Houghton's. The weather could not have been more perfect-spring in the air-robinsfleecy clouds overhead-squashy ground underfoot. Of course, there are always difficulties at a house party-such as twentyseven girls in seventeen (17-count 'em) beds, and a noticeable lack of knives, (one of the pledges was really quite abashed) but these difficulties are readily overcome by plenty of food and good fellowship. As usual, our pledge degree was very beautiful, but this timE it seemed to me to be more lovely, and more symbolic than ever, perhaps because it was the last time our older girls could take part in our very own .service. Before we realized. it was all over -girls had taken one more step towards becoming our sisters. 路 We took a new and less serious breath, and plunged headlong into the hilarity of an ideal house party, with all its dribble glasses and other practical jokes. After a very late supper of uneatable, undigestible, but very acceptable food, we turned our thots and attention to a stunt prepared for our benefit by our pledges. vVe are so proud of them, they are so very clever. They serenaded us with a nice little song, written by themselves, to the tune of "Yankee Doodle." The best sorority m town IS Alpha Sigma Alpha Pi Pi chapter, greatly famed of Alpha Sigma Alpha.

After the houseparty, things settled down agam, and a quiet week or two ensued. It seemed very good to have some pledges again to wash dishes and carry supplies. The chapter was thrown into wild excitement however, with the news that our first official inspection would take place on March 26 and 27. We realized only too well that we were the baby chapter, and could be forgiven some things on the basis of our immaturity, but on the other hand, we did want to show some signs of intelligence. We were told that Mary \i\Tagner, the I ational Chaplain and Carol Pierce, Mrs. Martin's Secretary were coming. The joke was certainly on us. We pictured Mary as a tall woman, majestic, stern, somewhat forbidding, possibly a trifle stout, certainly with cold blue eyes and a ministerial manner. We were in a quandary about Miss Pierce. She might be brusk and businesslike, or she might be the blue cotton umbrella, little-black-straw-hat-perchedon-the-top-of-her-head type. You people who know them can imagine our surprise and delight when they really came and we found out that they were not so different from ordinary mortals after all; that they could laugh with us, and talk with us, even see our problems with us, as well as present new solutions for some of our difficulties. We all enjoyed a laugh at the 路 expense of the member of one of the other sororities who wanted to know when our "old woman was coming" and also one of our alumnce who thought that they were our pledges and couldn't understand why she had not met them before. Our beloved faculty member and adviser, Miss Small, has. been ill for some time, and we miss her more than we can say. Without her we feel rather like the rudderless ship which we hear so much about. Eight more of our old Clio Alumnce have taken the Pledge Service of Alpha Sigma Alpha, and we are all so happy about it. \Ale realize just how much a strong ex-collegio chapter can mean to an organization and we feel that with twenty-two such loyal and interested backers, Pi Pi should do great things. The pledges have not been idle these first few spring clays. A rummage sale has already been planned, carried out and the proceeds banked, while a bridge party at the Consistory is on the books for next Saturday, and a pop-corn sale will be i:1 progress at school on Friday.

T CONFIDENCE If an automobile manufacturer were to substitute ca t iron where specifications called for tee!, he would have a difficult task in explaining that both belong to the ame group of metals.

Or, if a jeweler attempted to substitute a white apphire for a diamond, the plea that both belong to the preciou stone group would not serve as a satisfactory excuse. Modern business rests upon a foundation of confidence. Without it, the ultimate goal can never be reached, regardless of product. Your contract with the L. G. Balfour Company protects you from substitution. It i our con tant effort to maintain a ervice that will in pire your confidence.
