I Shall Remember"

a dear and appropriate finale in T thesel\IEIait路t ishours of 1939, to write a message, however inadequate, for Alpha Sigma Alphas to read in TnE PHOENIX. As I sit here at my Alpha Sigma desk on the eve of a new decade, the time and . etting is perfectly given to reminiscence. The nineteen thirties leave me with so much Alpha Sigma Alpha treasure "in the roundtower of my heart" and so many Alpha Sigma Alpha facts and figures in my mind. But when ~路au read these lines the New Year wi ll be well on its march of days "for Life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday." Even so, always I shall remember 1939 as my first full year of work for Alpha S igma Alpha. Truly, it has been full- "full of a number of thing "-too many to faithfully enumerate here. I ju t want to tell you that as I think back over the year, I am grateful for the blessing it has brought me in Alpha Sigma Alpha. It is heart warming to recall hundreds of personal contacts, little natches of intimate conversations, beautiful acts of courtesy and consideration, shared hopes and pla1is, discussions of knotty problems. . . . And oh, the chapter visits both college and alumnc.e! ever will I cease to wonder at the miracle of friendship which is cemented by common ideals and efforts. or do I ask to fully understand the mysterious depth that fraternity can reach

even in a f w brief hours. I am content in the knowledge that it belongs to us, that it is ours to experience. There is ample proof of the reality of it in my heart each time goodbyes must be said and each time reunion brings its thrill. Such privilege wou ld be meaningless did it not have its price. Fraternity membership is valuable to its owner because it deals in friend hip and love. These are rare qualities and good, but qualities that require constant cultivation for full growth. "Love," Clovis Chappell has aiel, "is restless and inventive. It will do the big thing if possible. If not, it will do the small thing grandly." There is so much to do in Alpha Sigma in 1940-big things and small. Wonderful plans we have: regional rneets and sectional organization, new college chapters almost ready for announcement, greater alumnc.e support, increased prestige, new goals, high hopes, and work for all of us. Tonight in our Alpha Sigma relationships, I ask a gracious benediction on 1939, a year beyond recall. I look hopefully to 1941 with its promise that we will meet in national convention. But my most earnest prayer is for 1940, the present, which is strangely and richly ours-if we will make it so. WILl\I[A VIILSON SH ARP.

The night before New Year's Eve

A Call for Leaders " G OOD leadership in fraternities is essential during the next few years." This, in brief, was the gist of a recent article in Banta's G1'eek Exchange. For fraternities everywhere recognize that they are on the defensive. More than that, they know that ultimate success comes not alone from defending, but primarily from waging an offensive battle. And to go forward requires leadership. Alpha Sigma Alpha has the desire to go forward. Her present leaders are forward looking, but to find the trails which haven't been blazed and to see the opportunities which haven't been uncovered is the big job awaiting new, untried leaders. Members of your National Council feel that it is not enough to do their respective jobs well. They know that it is likevvise their responsi-

bility to train others to carry on, to give others the chance to lead. It is impossible for the Council to know all college and alumnc.e members through correspondence, let alone through personal contact. They must learn potential .leaders through other channels. Do you know an A. S. A. who would be a good leader in sorority work? Send her name to any National Councilor and tell of her particular interest or talent. Are you one of those A. S. A.'s who would like to share in blazing new trails? Don't wait to be drafted for service. Speak for yourself. \!\Trite a National Councilor of your willingness to help. The new regional organization of our sorority calls for many new leaders. At the coming meetings in each section, leaders will be needed for round table discussions, chairmen wi ll be needed


4 for each vent on the program, while other leader will be needed to care for hou ina, reai tration, and entertainment of deleaate , publicity. \\'hat can you do for your orority? \\hat better way to begin training for national leader hip than through the meeting in your own ection? New leaders bring a fre hne , a vi ion, and


a Yigorou enthu · ia m to a movement which far over hadow any lack of exper ience .. \lpha . igma \lpha need :yo u-we need your talent. your idea . . and your un elfi h devotion in ord r that we may wage a ucce ful offen ive and go for\\'ard to new and greater achievement .

Alpha Sigma Alpha, Honor Unto Thee BEHALF of the National Council, your ONA.E.S . representative wishes to thank college and alumnce chapters for their expressions of confidence and for the thoughtful reactions and pertinent questions received. The sane attitude and sound position which our membership advanced on this long mooted question adds strength to our own convictions and courage to our spirits. It testifies to the unity and loyalty of Alpha Sigma Alphas that so important a matter could be presented and acted upon without the expensive necessity of a called convention. It is with much satisfaction that we report the respect and consideration accorded the Association of Education Sororities and Alpha Sigma Alpha during the conventions at White Sulphur Springs. Although Alpha Sigma Alpha's place on the Field Committee has demanded much time and work, it has also served as a means to broaden our sorority contacts and to interpret the high standards of our organization. We have many fine friendship in National Panhellenic Congress, V\Tomen's P rofessional Panhellenic Association and A. E. S . Let us continue to merit the esteem in which Alpha Sigma Alpha is held . For the benefit of alumnce who do not enjoy the good fortune of membership in an alumnce chapter, we again repeat the exact wording of the recommendations passed by the National Panhellenic Congress. The following statement was ic:sued by N. P. C. to A. E . S .

This represents the unanimous action of National Panhellenic Congress at its twenty-six conf erence upon the following recommendations : The Committee on Eligibility and Nationali zation of Social Groups recommends that National Panhellenic Congress agree not to enter fields already occupied by the Association of Education Sororities, and agree to consider a the fi eld of the Association of Education Sororities the institutions accredited by the A merican Association of Teachers' Colleges . The Committee on Eligibility and Nati onali zation of Social Groups recommend s that National Panhellenic Congress go on record as approving a cooperative, non-governing affiliation with the \i\Tomen's Professional Panhellenic AssoCiation, the Association of Education ororities, and similar National Associations in the collegiate fi eld. It is recommended that the ob jective of such an affiliation be to further the welfare of fraternity women by giving greater emphasis and more widespread recognition to fraternity standards, and safegua rd and point the direction of future fraternity life in the educational system. It is further recommended that the Committee on Eligibility and Nationalization of Social Groups be authorized to complete details of such an organization and report same to the next Panhellenic Congress.

Alumnae Support for National Growth A LP IJ.'\ l"\. wtth

J G~r. ~ ALPHA eme r~e. victorious along the tx other Assoctat10n of Education Sororilie in the long struggle to obtain a satisfactory olution to the problem of field. The Iational I anh ellen ic Congress accepted unanimously the recomm endation that our field be clearly defined and Alpha Sigma lpha sets her st ride for achivements un equalled in her past history. \iV hat form wi ll th ese new achievements take? Growth! New college chapters. Growth! New alumnc:e chapters. Growth! Regional Convention bringing college and alumnc:e members together in groups of national significance. A nd again Growth! Alumnc:e interest to bring about a co ntinuing alumnc:e support of thi s National program of expansion. Such a program will mean a greater development of alumnc:e interest than Alpha Sigma Alpha now has. A growing alumnc:e interest has been hown by the establishment of many new alumnc:e chapters and increased alumnc:e attendance at N ationa! Conventions. But there is need fo r g reater financial support on the part of our alumnc:e if the sorori ty is to embark upon this program of expansion and growth . To maintain its enviable position as a leader among the A. E . S . groups A lpha Sigma Alpha must engage in new and costly ventures. It cannot maintain its place in th e forefront by standing still. As an organization it must move forward with its rivals in the field. It must follovv the trend in fraternity activity as a changing world shapes the course of action for all fraternities. Regional organization seems wise and feasible for a widely scattered membership_. so Alpha Sigma Alpha embarks upon her program of growth with plans for it. And it is hoped that the regional organization will have a wider purpose than the Regional Conventions themselves. It can lead into other means of growth and achievement as it has done for other fraternities. \ iVe have prided ourselves that we have been able to achieve much as an organization and still keep our clues and fees at a minimum. S ince 1934 there has been no pressure brought to bear on our alumnc:e m~mbers for financial support. The college graduates have been sent only one letter concerning alumnc:e dues. Payment of alumnc:e dues has been entirely voluntary and consequently ver y li ttle money has come into the National Treasury. Alumnc:e dues are fi xed at $25 and there are no annual dues. The pledge fees of new members have been credited to alumnc:e dues therefore reducing th e amount to be paid after leaving school.

Payments of any amo unt are acceptable at anv time after initiation. By diverting the alumnc:e dues to the Convention F und and defraying a part of the alumnc:e delegates' expense to National Convention, theresponse of individual members through their Alumnc:e Chapters has been commensurate with the amount needed for alumnc:e Convention expenses. But to finance these new ventures in fraternity growth, regional organization and expansion of chapters, Alpha Sigma Alpha asks for the individual support of her al umnc:e members. And to have individual suppo rt a plan of individual contact by chapter members with their own chapter siste rs is presented. The Alumnc:e Loyalty Committee with Thelma Stortz Moyer, Kappa Kappa and National Secretary, as I ational Chairman will go into action as soon as this number of the PHOENIX is off the press. W ith her will serve five Regional Chairmen, twenty-three College Chapter Chairmen and thirty-nine Alumn c:e Chapter Chairmen. This Committee will f unction until the 1941 Convention when it is hoped that the possibilities of th e plan will be enlarged and the organi zati on perfected for pem1anent service. \iVho but the very members hav ing made outstanding contributions to their chapters in college days are the alumnc:e selected to serve on the Alumnc:e Loyalty Committee. We honor these by giving them the opportunity to contribute their most precious gifts to their sorority; their leadership, their initiative, their expe ri ence and time. The duties of all who will function to make the plan a success are listed. Those persons with tentative appointments to the Alumnc:e Loyalty Committee a re asked to write at once to Thelma Stortz Moyer at Laurel, Delaware, of their willingness to serve in thi s capacity.

Alpha Sigma Alpha Financial Study Sheet January 1940 - 0ffice of National Treasurer ALUMNAE


In 1930 lpha igma Alpha revi ed her financial policie . The realization that the reource of college tuclent are limited prompted the 1930 onvention body to make the college initiate's fee a low as po ible. Thi plan wa made po ible only becau e of a companion plan. The feeling then a now wa that following graduation .A. . \. ' would be in a better po ition to contribute to the support of the orority than during their college clay . Therefore, ince 1930 lpha igma lpha has looked to her Jumn~ members to complete payment on their individual life member hip through mall annual contributions. For those initiated in 1930, 1931 and 1932 through ugust, 10 of the fee paid at the time of initiation is credited to you r Life ~Iembership. In other word s to complete your life membership dues you would make three annual payment of 5 each. For those initiated since A ugust, 1932, when the lowered fee went into effect, $5 of the fee paid at the time of initiation is credited to your Life Membersh ip and four ann ual payment of $5 each would complete your life member hip dues. Prior to 1935 all Alumn~ dues were placed in the Endowment Fund and through the years a substantial fund of $66,050 ha been accumulated. ince $18,275 of this fund represents 25 payment by 73 1 member for Life Sub cription to the PHOE NIX, a certain portion of the

But wi hing and dreaming alone will not foster growth in lpha Sigma's Alumnce Roll; follow-up are made by letters and contacts with alumnce in these various parts of the country. lf perchance you are in a locality which could organize an alumnce chapter and haven't as yet been contacted, won't you take the initiative and write me? Our alumnce can do much to advance the interests of our orority and make A . S. A . a leader in the fraternity world. Right now th ere are still many places where A. S. A. should have influential chapters. There are no stringent requirements and it doesn't cost a cent. On another page you will find listed the "Pertinent Facts

Pertinent Facts Relative to Organization of Chartered Alumnae Chapter PETITION In accordance with the Constitutional requirement the petition must be signed by at least eight alumnce. Upon receipt of this petition and its acceptance by the National Council the petitioning group is granted a Charter.

NATIONAL FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS To be an Alumnce Chapter involves no financial obligations. The following contributions can be made at the will of the Chapte路r.

Fellowship Fund: Once a year our well established groups contribute ten dollars to the .Fellowship Fund of the sorority which provides loans for our college girls. Many Alumnce chapters consider this their philanthropic work for the year. A. S. A . does not expect newly organized groups to be able to make this contribution but the sorority is glad when alumnce feel that they can help in the carrying out of our various activities.

Life Membership Fees: A chartered Alumnce chapter contributing at least ten dollars annually in Life Membership Fees is entitled to full hotel expenses to Convention for one alumnce delegate. The ten dollars collected ( for example, one dollar from each of

ten members to be applied on their respective life memberships) is placed in the Convention Fund to help defray alumnce expenses.

OFFICERS OF ALUMNAE CHAPTER When the chapter is sufficiently large the Constitution suggests a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and PI-IOE TIX Correspondent. The latter is asked to send news of her chapter to M rs. John Horter, 219 East Third Street, Beaver, Pennsylvania, by the 5th of October, December, Feb ruary and April.

MEETINGS In accordance with the Constitutional requirement an Alumnce Chapter is expected to hold at least four meetings a year. A definite alumnce program is not suggested .

LOCAL DUES To be determined by the A lumnce chapter. Some groups set yearly dues, wh ile others have an assessment for each meeting.

ALUMNAE CHAPTER ROLL The National Alumnce Organizer will furnish the names and addresses of alumnce living in a given locality.

T he - igma ~ u 's of \ i\f isconsin tell of th eir Sigma Xu v\ eek in Ba nta's Cree l~ E :rchange, July, 1938, in an article entitled, ' 'Vle Gave Up Hell Week and In titute I S igma N u Vleek. " May we quote from thi article? ''Th ursday night each pledge was required to bring a prominent Greek pa rticipant in extracurri cul ar activities to the chapter house fo r dinner. D uring the dinn er the pledge made a few informal rema rks on hi s guest's activity, hi s frate rni ty, and our a sociations with that activity and fratern ity. In each instance the guest responded \\路ith imila r rema rk s, praising, incidentally, . N. . . . . F riday at the noon meal the group sang songs until we were satisfi ed that they had been learned .. . . F ri day evening each pledge gave a talk at the dinner table about Sigma :\ u chapter in a neighboring unive rsity and about the school it elf . . .. Afte r dinner an acti Ye gave what he called a "Chalktalk" on Greek houses on our campus. . . . their rating, outtand ing members and accomplishments, and ou r relation hip with them, draw ing pictures of pledge and actiYe badges as he talked. Saturday a di'> cus. ion about the fraternity included our fin anci al policy, our campus politics, our ideas about fraternities. our alumni, our nati onal organi zation, our local organization, and countl ess oth er pertinent que tions about the frat . . . At three in th e afternoon on Sunday formal initiation was held and follo\Y ed by a banquet. Every pledge knew the inside and out of the f ra ternity." Soro rities and fraternities are making preini tiati on \Y eek a more profitable experience and enterpri se. "Social P recedents and Sorority Ethics" remi nd us that "customs have changed radicall y in recent years regarding the statu s of pledges. I nstead o f making their lives miserable by unrea sonable, ri diculous requirements, the entire abo li tion of all obj ectionable pre-initiation 路tunts and practi ces, sometim es g rouped under the name of 'Hell '"' eek,' has been sancti oned by the leading sorori ties and fraternities as obsolete and oppo eel to the ideals and dignity of the fraternal \\路oriel. This means that there shall be no publi c exhibitions, demonstrati ons, rough or ttn digni fiecl tunts."

F rom our resea rch of the many orority and f rate rnity publications we fi nd that th e following P re-Initiation P r eparation Prog am has been hi ghly successful. "On Monday night, active and pledges hold an open meeting with the pledge entirely in cha rge. T he pledge group sings ongs and then invites questions about A. S. . to be asked them by th e actives. O n Tuesday night, the pledge group sponsors a F ireside Chat. T he pledges have th e entire responsibility fo r the success of the evening. A Panhellenic adviser will probably be the speaker fo r the evening, her topic being '"W ould I Make a Good So rority Girl ?' O n Wednesday night, a quiz fo r actives and p ledges is held . It is more or less a contest seeing whether the actives or the pledges a re up on their material. T he quiz includes history, finances, chapte r roll, national organization and general information. On T hursday, upon the invitation of alumn re and patronesses the prospective initiates make fi ve or more calls during the clay (or perhaps during the week ) . T hese calls a re the pledges' entire respo nsibility. It is more or less an open house fo r the pledges . O n F riday, initiation is held followed by a fo rmal dinner honoring th e initiates. T here is an exchange of gifts between pledge moth ers and ini tiates." T hu s using Pre-Initiation Preparation \Neek a a climax the individual initiate realizes that through her own endeavor s she has qualified her set f to take f ull oppo rtu nity of the pri vilege that is offered her.

The ancient shields hang on the walls of the old castles-symbolic of the protection given in bygone days . Today protection is provided for those thing which we hold dear, by con tant vigilance and cooperation. Your insignia stands as the proud emblem of your member hip in Alpha Sigma Alpha. In it has been built the ymboli m of ideals exemplified in your initiation. As your official jeweler, it is our privilege and duty to protect this insignia-first, by the maintenance of quality and price; and, second, to keep it from falling into hand of non-member . During the dark days of 1918, we maintained insignia specifications and price at great acrifices. The price of gold zoomed, Government restrictions drastically curtailed upplie , taxe multiplied-and again today, we are faced with the same problem. Yet badge price are lower now than twenty year ago. Protection must be carried further in order to di courage indi criminate manufacture of your in ignia. You are urged to make purcha e only through the channel set up by the officer whom you ha e elected.
