THE PHOENIX sure I don't know what they can be) that they didn't even mention food. By this time some of my Alpha Sigs began to get black circles under their eyes and a few of them even seemed to be asleep in Mr. Bennet's class. I thought to myself that they would surely take a rest now. But I was wrong again. On December eighth the excollegio chapter gave a supper party in the school cafeteria for the actives. It was the last time that I was to see the Alpha Sigma Alpha girls meet together in the building that had been their 路home for many years. Eleanor Schiersing was chairman of the party and among those present were Evelyn Bell and Alice Weinheimer, past presidents of Pi Pi chapter, and Mrs. George Contant, president of the excollegio chapter. The next day in the main corridor, stood a table decorated in red and white and used to sell bids for Alpha Sigma Alpha's Christmas dance. This was the last dance in the old gymnasium and was a huge success due to Geraldine Jemison who was the chairman. Now at last the long rest which I had hoped for was to begin. A vacation that lasted from December eighteenth to January twelfth. The next time I saw the girls was on Moving Day. Such excitement as there was! Floats, cars decorated with streamers and hundreds of students were ready for the parade from the old campus to the new. I searched in vain for some of my A. S.

Her friends told me that this was her way of representing the Home Economics department in the parade. That is one way of displaying school spirit I suppose, however, I prefer to chime. I told you before that I had but one thing to fear and that is the new 路 campus is so large that I was afraid I would be unable to keep in touch with these girls who were so dear to me. However, I was mistaken, for when the parade terminated I could see them going about here and路 there inspecting the building. You can't imagine how thrilled I was to see Dorothy Marley stand upon the state at the first assembly held in the new auditorium. She was chairman of the housewarming dance held in the new gymnasium that night. It takes Dot to put over a dance for it was the biggest and best ever held at S. T. C. For weeks I have watched Betty Simmons and have been filled with curiosity concerning a square white box which she always carries with her. It was much of a relief to find out that Betty was chairman of the first rush party which is to be a garden party on March second. The
