:-;

One of the. most valuable experiences of the 1946 ASA Convention was the opening general assembly at whteh Dr. A. Evelyn Newman gave an arresting and inspiring address. It is crratifying to be privileged to print a digest of the address in this issue of THE PHOENIX. Durin; Dr. Newman's address, convention listeners heard more than her forceful words . They heard every door of escape from individual responsibilities as world women bang hut. They heard their own aroused consciences say, "There is something we can do about it." Also, they should have heard a familiar ring in Dr. Newman's message and recognized a related philosophy. Forty-five years ago, the Founders of Alpha Sigma Alpha envisioned the place of the sorority in world affairs. Founders and early members wrote into the ASA Charter that one of the purposes of the sorority should be "to ennoble the womanhood in the world." Read during the month of Founders' Day, Dr. ewman' address, World Women Face Today's Problems, should have an added importance 路 for all Alpha Sigma Alphas.

FORTY-FIFTH BIRTHDAY Forty-five is a happy age for an organization (and it may well be added for a person). Forty-five allows long enough for looking back upon beginnings that have grown into creditable maturity. At forty-five, the worthwhile progress and accomplishments of the past promise upon good authority greater success in the future. Better yet, at forty-five, there remain five years to go before the big milestone of fifty years-half a century-is reached. Five years, half a decade, can be a long time measured in achievement, in good deeds, in growth. Best of all, from the vantage post of forty-five, the future can be anticipated with reality, with stability, with high hope of better things to come. Alpha Sigma Alpha was forty-five years old November fifteenth. Harriet B. Johnson, of lJeta Epsilon, who is Founders' Day chairman, chose as the theme of the unique and interesting 1946 Founders' Day Program, "V\1ise Builders." The following pertinent statements are taken from the program material: "Alpha Sigma A lpha, founded upon the rock of clear thinking, Christian faith and love, has withstood not only the good weather but the wind and rain of storms that have sometimes beset her. It is for us who are the present builders to continue to plan wisely, reinforcing our structure with strength and remodeling our edifice in greater beauty as a home worthy of those who will follow us in the future."

DIGNITY IN NATIONAL SORORITY AFFILIATION The conclusion of the lively and practical ASA convention round table discussions on membership selection and pledge training is typical of the sound thinking and purpose which college women are bringing to their chapters. In brief and pointed summary of the discussion, Alpha Sigma Alpha college delegates voted: "to in till in our chapters the feeling of dignity and pride in our affiliation as national sorority women." Such high standard for procedure provides no place for pointle s and undignified practices during pledge training and initiation. For a long time national fraternity officers have taken an uncompromising stand on such matters. Nevertheless, it remains for college members to blot out any die-hard vestiges of outmoded chapter or campus custom and to ban the substitution of meaningless practices in their place. Kappa Alpha Theta's convention body is to be highly commended for positive and concrete action taken this summer. The July Banta's Gre ek E.'t:change records it as follows: " For many years Kappa Alpha Theta has found the formal steps of its initiation ritual an adequate induction of pledges into fratern ity membership. Supplementary activities, whether designated as "Hell \Veek" or "Courtesy Week" have provided just cause for criticism of fraternities and have weakened rather than strengthened the ties of loyalty, and the understanding of fraternity obligations so beautifully presented in the initiation ritual. Therefore, Kappa Alpha Theta in convention assembled decrees that henceforth no chapter shall include such supplementary programs in its induction of new members."

in the old Dominion State "Where the DOWN South begins," the Alumnae Chapter of Richmond, Virginia, is proud to present the winner of the Wilma Wilson Sharp Alumna Award . The outstanding Alumna of Alpha Sigma Alpha for 1946, is Mrs. Thomas Dotterer Eason (Carrie Christian Eason). As a conscientious worker and leader in civic, school and church organizations, a devoted family per on, and a typical "southern lady," we are honored to have Mrs. Eason for a loyal member of lpha Sigma Alpha Sorority. Mrs. Eason was trained as a teacher at State Teacher's College, Farmville, Virginia, from 1909 to 1911 and taught for three years at Worsham, Virginia, before her marriage to Thomas Dotterer Eason, at that time professor of Science at Farmville. She organized and taught a Kindergarten when her son was small and has substituted occasionally in Richmond. She did post-graduate work at the Extension Division of the College of

DoTTERER

EASON

William and Mary and at the University of R ichmond. 1rs. Eason is a member of the William Byrd Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and for the past twenty-five years has held varied offices. For many years she has also given service as a member of the Board of Lady Managers of the Richmond Home for Ladie . Now serving as Second Vice-President of the Richmond Chapter of the Virginia Cancer Foundation, she holds membership on the Executive Committee and Board of Trustees of this chapter. lso participating in organizing a work room at Medical College of Virginia Hospital to make bandages for indigent cancer patients, she has served as Chairman of this workroom. In educative work, she has served as Director of the J ational Association of Farmville Alumnae, President of the Parent-Teacher Association at George Thorpe School, and Vice-President of the General Federation of the Parent-Teacher Association in Richmond.


8 Mrs. Eason's main interest has always been in the many church organizations of the Presbyterian Church. She served as First District Chairman and President of the East Hanover Presbyterial, having sixty-four churches under her leadership. She is now Chairman of the White Cross work in the Virginia Synodical, which is a Statewide organization. As a volunteer worker, she has given much time to the U.S.O., Red Cross, Community Fund, and Office of Civilian Defense. A loyal 路 Alpha Sigma Alpha and a neverending spreader of its spirit, Mrs. Eason w路as an active member of Alpha Chapter in college. She has entertained for the Alumnae Chapter and attended its functions. Her husband, Thomas Eason, was faculty adviser and honorary member of Alpha Sigma Alpha at Farmville. She has three daughters who were active members of Alpha Chapter at Farmville and are active members of the Richmond Alumnae group. Mrs. Eason says that her family is her hobby and well may she be proud of them. Dr. Eason was Director of Higher Education in the State of Virginia. Mrs. Eason attended various educational meetings with him throughout the State and I ation. Her home has always been open to the many visiting educators. At Dr. Eason's death, Mrs. Eason was left with three daughters to educate. Thomas Eason, Jr., had just graduated from Hampden-Sydney College, but Marie, Caroline and Julia were still in school and Mrs. Eason saw to it that each girl graduated. All three daughters held important offices on campus, were members of Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges, and were active in numerous organizations, including various offices in A lpha Chapter where their loyalty, efficiency and personal southern charm, made them valuable assets to our group. Mrs. Eason is now a grandmother. Her son is home after serving two and one-half years overseas as a Captain in the Anti-Aircraft A rtillery and is now working near Washington. He has a son, Thomas III. Marie has a son, Taylor Reveley III, and a new daughter named for Mrs. Eason, a future ASA we hope. Marie's husband is college Pastor at Southwestern College in Memphis, Tennessee. Caroline is now an Instructor in the Training School at Farmville State Teacher's College. Julia's husband, Captain Roger Vv. Mercer, Jr., is home from overseas after two years and is going back to Virginia Polytechnic Institute for several months to get his degree in engineering.

and many friends. During the war it was a "home away from home" for many service men and women. Mrs. Eason's gracious, friendly manner is remembered by all who know and love her. Although a woman of firm convictions, she is always tolerant of the viewpoints of others. Her pronounced sense of loyalty to family, friends, organizations and ideals, makes her a worthy personage to all with whom she comes in contact. She is held in high regard by her social and business associates. She is an outstanding person in her activities, her personality, and her unswerving loyalty to Alpha Sigma Alpha. We are extremely proud of her and her contribution to our sorority. 'vVe salute you, Mrs. Thomas Dotterer Eason!

Alpha Sigma Alpha Convention or ~~It Isn't All Play"

T

HE Alpha Sigma Alpha convention in the Rockies was certainly a memorable occasion ! When Helen Sowder and I walked into the Stanley Hotel at Estes Park, Colorado, on the 22nd of August, and Mrs. Sharp came up to greet us, I realized what a superb family reunion it was going to be. How can Mrs. Sharp possibly remember us all by name? What a wonderful feeling there was to be surrounded by Alpha Sigma Alpha girls from all over the United States. Our opening luncheon was exciting. It was so impressive that first afternoon to see each delegate hang her chapter shield and it was easily seen by their speeches that all of them are clever, friendly, and popular. After our Thursday evening dinner in honor of the new chapters, Dr. A. Evelyn Newman, of the Colorado State College of Education, spoke to us. Remember the sunrise canter on Friday morning? We were so-o-o sleepy, but it didn't take those horses long to wake us up, or did it? From all indications, Helen Corey was having a hard time making her horse even walk, let alone canter! The convention round table discussions were certainly helpful to the delegate. It was interesting to know how other chapters handle their problems. We can't lose if we attempt to reach the goal set for our individual chapters. The alumnae round table discussions resulted in the presentation of unit plans to aid alumnae chapters in making their yearly programs, with detailed suggestions for meetings and money making projects. They also suggested that all chapters stress life membership and the advantages thereof sometime during the year and that whenever possible alumnae chapters should have an affiliation with nearby college chapters. The thirteen advisers present, pooled their ideas for making the position of advisers more vital to the chapter and the national organization. Didn't we have fun on Saturday when we went to Bear Lake and rode horses up the mountain to Dream Lake? Oh, there are so many things to remember-Family reunion ni ght and all those songs and out-of-date clothes, the Boots and Saddles luncheon when we heard some of the different chapter's songs. We Alpha Sigs love to sing, and especially with our lovely Shirley A inswo rth leading us. Then the alumnae "Bubble" luncheon was quite an affair w( h all its bibs, balloons, etc.

Review

The theme of the Sunday luncheon expressed the way we all felt. It was our Happy Family luncheon. On Sunday evening when we donned our dinner dresses and our quiet formal air for the ASA Starlight banquet, we had a feeling of definite happiness with just a touch of sadness because our reunion was almost over. We'll be a well-rounded and happy group if we keep the enthusiasm for work, the refreshment of mirth, the steadfastness of ideals, the quality of beauty, and the contentment of friendship emphasized by the banquet speakers. The final touch was added by the sparklers at the close of the program . We were all amused at the motherly "going away" advice given us Monday morning at our last convention breakfast. On our tables were small posters that said things like this : "Did you leave anything?" or " Don't speak to strange men on the train, etc." Aside from the planned events, we had fun talking about our chapters and hearing of the others . I guess we all have a few problems but our good times and sisterly feeling outweigh them. It seemed like th.e " blow" sessions we all have in our dormitory or sorority house rooms. Then, too; we won't forget the jaunts down to Estes Park in search of souvenirs. Every Alpha Sigma A lpha girl wants to pay tribute to Mrs. Wilma Wilson Sharp, Mrs. Polly Schlosser, Miss Evelyn G. Bell, Miss Helen L. Corey, Mrs. Genevieve Leib, Miss .Esther Bucher, and Mrs. Marie B. Berry, our poised and lovely national convention leaders. You're our favorite Alpha Sigma Alpha's. Thanks for everything you do constantly to keep us the happy fami ly we are. We also "express our best wishes to our two new and capable officers, M iss V irginia Carpenter, and Mrs. Townsend E. Clark. The feeling obtained from convention is unexplainable. To hear the whole group sing the "Alpha Sigma Alpha Sweetheart" song was so inspirational, it made us want to be stronger Alpha Sigs. Those who didn't go on the grand lake tour left the Stanley on Mon da¡y morning. As we crowded into the buses the other Alpha Sigmas stood on the porch and sang "Til Vve Meet Again" to us. In the meantime, we've pledged ourselves to be aware-to be alert-to be active I ORMA RoBESON, Beta Kappa

A. S. A. College Women Accept Responsibilities

C

OLLEGE chapter representatives from many sections of the United States contributed notably to the effectiveness of the 1946 Alpha Sigma Alpha national convention. Their individuality of thought and spontaneity of expression struck a high mark during both recreational and planning periods throughout the convention. In an wer to initial roll call, each college chapter delegate proudly, briefly described her chapter as she hung its chapter shield. This traditional ASA convention ceremony reflected glory upon the colleges represented as well as upon the sorority. Also, the expanse of a national organization was realized as the reports of the delegates revealed sectional characteristics and college loyalties of the North, South, East and West. But the uniting force of accepted ideals and the impelling urge of working together in good undertakings kept the spirit of cooperation high above personal or sectional interests. Individual responsibilities loomed larger in relation to college, to community, to nation. At the formal banquet which climaxed convention on its final night, five college girls spoke. One of them from Michigan said : "If it is true that in America there is now an attitude to get something for nothing, then American college women shou ld help to change that attitude . If we hold individual rights and our national heritage in dear esteem, it follow s that we should expect the individual citizen to exercise l)er right of growing and working, each at her highest level of ability." A nd another from Illinois followed a statement with a question: "Eventually, the art of living in harmony with other people must characterize our world relationships. Does .not that vitalize the practice of it in our small, intimate groups?" The combined thinking of all college chapter delegates was crystallized into the following objectives formulated and accepted by them: Convention discussions and companionships have created for us a distinct goal for our indi vidual chapters. This is our aim:

To ma!?e o~wsclves more forceful citizens of our Nation and more intelligent representatives of the world; To inspire o~w chapters toward 11wre national cooperation and personal co11tacts during between-convention years ,路 To instill in our chapters the feeling of dignity and p1路ide in our a.ffilia.tion as national sorority women. WE PLEDGE OURSELVES T O BE A \?o..TARE .... TO BE A LERT .... TO BE ACTIVE!

E of the opening statements of the charter of the United Nations as to its purpose is: "To reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women, and 'of nations large and small."

Carrying out this objective a commission on human rights was appointed as one of the most important branches of the Economic and Social Committee, which in turn is one of the most vital and constructive divisions of the entire United ations Charter. The commission on human rights realized at once that the "equal rights of men and women" were almost unheard of in many so-called backward countries of the world. A sub-commission on the Status of Women was therefore immediately organized. The members of this sub-commission included Mrs. Bodil Begtrup of Denmark, chairman (a remarkably brilliant and worldminded person) ; Miss Minerva Bernardino of the Dominican Republic, vice-chairman; Miss Angela Jurdak of Lebanon ; Mrs. Hansa Mehta of the All Indian Women's Council of India ; Mrs. Marie Helene Lefaucheux of France; Mrs. W . S. New of China; M iss Frederyka Kalinowska of

Poland. Gabriela Mistral of Chile, the most recent Nobel prize winner in literature (Nov. 1945) had been appointed as a member but was forced to resign because of ill health and governmental duties. She was recently made Chilean Consul in San Francisco. Soviet Russia was requested to send a representative but so far has not done so. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, chairman of the Commission on Human Rights, was an ex-officer member and attended most of the ~eetings. Discussion by these women of the immense needs of their world sisters was lively and to the point. Miss J urdak of Lebanon declared that the debasing custom of polygamy must be abolished in all oriental countries before the status of women could be lifted to any perceptible degree. Mrs. Lefaucheux objected to this proposal, saying that there were huge regions in the French colonies where polygamy was practiced as a custom. "We are here to discuss customs," she asserted. "If we want to raise the status of women, we have to fight customs," put in Mrs. Hansa Mehta of India. "We should not be afraid. There are many regions where child marriages exist, just as polygamy does. That must be fought against, too." Finally the group agreed to the recommendation that "the right to monogamy be included under inarriage, along with freedom of choice, dignity of the wife, and right to breach of mar. " nage. The final summation of the proposals "to raise the status of women to equality with men in all fields of human enterprise" included the following objectives: Political: Universal suffrage, equal right to vote, equal 路right to be elected, equal right to hold office. Educational: Equal opportunity for compulsory, free and full education, equal opportunity in all specialized fields as well as training and right to enjoy scientific discoveries applied to human growth and development (Euthenics). Th~ stimulation of world public opinion in favor of raising the status of women as an instrument to further human rights and peace. Legal: No disability should be attached to woman on the ground of her sex. She should have equal opportunity with men in all fields of social and labor rights and in assumption of duties.


THE PHOENIX

Special considerations of health should be given equally to men and women. There should be no special provision save for maternal and child care. (Gabriela Mistral, though she had resigned from the commission, praised this re olution highly. She stated that all rulings placing women and children under the same social legislation discriminated against women, placing them below men in working ability.) Women should have equality of responsibility legally as~ to parenthood, property, finances, and all matters pertaining to life and work. vVhen we read over these proposals handed to the commission on human rights by these women, we should realize that even the women of our United States do not have such rights in all of our states, especially outhern ones. For twentythree years various groups of American women have been sponsoring an Amendment to the Constitution which by becoming the law of the land will say that men and women should have equal rights 路everywhere in this country. To get such an amendment two thirds of the members of both house and sentate would have to approve it. After such an approval this amendment would have to be approved and passed by thirty-six state legislatures. Such a proceeding may take many years. The proposal only recently got to the floor of the senate. Though thirty-eight senators voted for it, thirty-five voted against it, so it never got to the hou&e at all. Sponsors of the amendment only said, "We'll keep on trying-perhaps it will not be another twenty-three years." "Equal wage for equal work," is still only a slogan so far as women teachers are concerned for many school systems in our country. Even equal opportunities fqr education are now being questioned in certain colleges and universities. The spring number of the Journal of the American Association of University W 01nen had an article entitled "Doors Closing for Women Students." At the meeting of the American College Public Relations Association a warning went out Not to Bar Women . At this meeting the "men first" attitude of many co-educational institutions was decried as a backward step . Colleges were urged to provide facilities for women as well as for veterans. But women are not taking these rebuffs "sitting down." They are organizing in many active group . One of the most noteworthy is the Political Action Organization, the American branch of the Women' International Democratic Federation set up in Paris in November of 1945-. Its

membership includes 81,000,000 women in fortyone countries. The meeting of the American branch was held in New York City in l\Iay of 1946. There were six hundred representatives of women's clubs, trade unions, women in the professions, and house wives. Mrs. Bodil Begtrup of Denmark, chairman of the subcommission on the Status of W.omen, brought greetings from that delegation. She said, "It is encouraging for us to have a group like yours here in the United States to support us. Our plans really need the support of the women of the world . We are happy with the confidence American Women have shown in our work. The turning point has come in the changing attitude of men toward women as shown in their treating us as comrades in work." The purpose of this political action group i to organize women "from the homes, industries, offices, professions, farms, schools, and colleges without regard to race, religion, national origin or political party to take political and all other necessary action to advance and defend political, economic, legal, and social rights of women and to promote the protection, health, and education of all children through political, legi lative, and educational action ." A non-partisan organization known a "The Woman's Action Committee for Lasting Peace'' held a national meeting in Louisville, Kentucky, in late April. There the legislative committee read out names of senators and representatives, known to be reactionaries and isolationists, from the various states and told the women present: "There is no question about the desirability of defeating these men. Don't keep talking about the potential power of woman's vote. Go home and use if." There are signs that both the Republican and the Democratic party machines are wooing the women. Let us all take time out from house and home or professional work to study the national and world issues and then vote for the men (and the few women in politics) who represent the principles we believe in for making a better world. We need more wom,en in active politics. V\ e need not be ashamed of our women in any field of endeavor, whether it be that of science where Madame Curie and Dr. Lise Meitner have done so much or in education where Dean Virginia Gildersleeve and Minister of Education Ellen Wilkinson stand out in plans for world education. The better world that mu t come, if We tern Civilization is not to perish from the earth, must be brought to birth by equal labor of men and women facing and solving problems together.

A. S. A. Officers at Convention say welcome to our new Vice-President, we regretfully say goodbye to our former Vice-President, Polly Schlosser, who has served on the National Council for the past twelve years, but whose increased professional duties necessitated her resignation. Alpha Sigma Alpha shall always be grateful for the service she has rendered.

VIRGINIA CARPENTER

Vice-President

We have our Marine back in civilian life and in our A.S.A. ational Family. Virginia Carpenter, resigned from her office as Alunmae Editor to answer the call of Uncle Sam and so the U. S. Marines Women's Reserve Corps gained a Lieutenant and Alpha Sigma Alpha lost their alumnae editor. However, the Marines released Virginia in July and in August she flew to Estes Park and to the Vice-Presidency of Alpha Sigma Alpha. She served well as Alumnae Editor, she will serve well as Vice-President. So while we

R egistrar

We are quoting from Marion' own introduction to her chapter registrars. "I first became acquainted with Alpha . Sigma Alpba at Drexel Institute of Technology in Philadelphia, where I was taking Home Economics. The u .Nu's were in every campus pie so I was 'sold' on Alpha Sigma from the first. \i\fhen I graduated in 1942, I vvent to Columbus, Ohio, to work at the Maramor Restaurant. There the Columbus Alumnae Chapter swelled my pride in sorority because they took the 'little girl from Philly' and made her right at home. Married in 1945 .. . traveled with the Air Corps . . . discharged .. . Estes Park in August. And there you know all about n1e." However, the above does not begin to tell of Marion's abilities or her capacities for work and路 play. So while saying thank you to Marie Berry for her five years service as N a tiona! Registrar and expressing Alpha Sigma Alpha's deep appreciation for such service, we also say thank you to Marion Oark for accepting the responsibilities of this important office.

Our Recent Chapter Installations

HAYWOOD GYMNASIUM

BETA MU INSTALLATION As the president of our college once told us, "Be proud of your Greek letter society, but first of all be proud of the fact that your are a Hendersonian." And we are P1'0ud of our college. Henderson became a teachers' college in 1929. Up until_ that time its name was HendersonBrown and it was supported by the Methodists of Arkansas. Since then a large number of new buildings have been erected and Henderson has become one of the finest schools in the state. The campus is one of great natural beauty, and consists of eighty acres of lawn and woodland, penetrated here and there by deep and picturesque ravines. The great oaks, stately pines, and brilliant rose gardens all combine to make our campus one to be remembered. Last year there were only two sororities here at Henderson and these were local. The enrollment was steadily rising and many girls had to be left out of such a group because membership -was limited. Dr. D. D. McBrien took matters into his own hands and announced that the campus was open for the organization of national so rorities. The Alpha Sigs from A rkansas State Teach-

ers at Conway were the first representatives from a national sorority to arrive. They talked with a group of us who were interested in joining the same organization and with their aid and the splendid advice of Miss Marie Schichtl their faculty adviser, we became Zeta Sigmas and as such petitioned to become a part of Alpha Sigma Alpha. On March fourth_we received a telegram with the glad news that our petition had been granted. From that time until May fourth we were busy planning our installation week-end and incidentally studying our pledge manuals. The installation program was under the direction of Mrs. Wilma Wilson Sharp, National President. She was assisted by Miss Esther Bucher, National Treasurer. The three chapters assisting in the iniation were the Eta Eta Chapter, Pittsburg, Kansas, represented by Freda E lmore and Marinell Clark; Beta Gamma Chapter, Talequah, Oklahoma, represented by Robbie Farris and Joan Whitenberg; and Beta Lambda Chapter, Arkansas State Teachers College at Conway, represented by M iss Marie Schichtl, faculty adviser, Betty Ruth Joyce, Bessie Ross, Dorothy Hall, Betty Freeman,

Our week-end plans included an informal coke-party on Friday night where we really came to know the representatives from the three chapters. They taught us some of those catchy A.S.A. songs and told us of their own groups "back home." Then on Saturday afternoon the beautiful and impressive initiation service wa held in Key Hall.

BETA NU INSTALLATION Murray State Teachers College, often called "the south's most beautiful campus," is the home of Beta Nu, one of Alpha Sigma Alpha's new chapters. Established by the General Assembly of Kentucky in 1922, this college had its first enrollment as a normal school in September, 1923. In 1930, Murray Normal School, along with otber teacher training institutions, became Murray State' Teachers College, with the power to offer liberal arts and pre-professional courses along with the training of teachers. Murray college is located in Murray, Kentucky, a town of six thousand, fifteen miles from Kentucky Lake, the longest artificial lake in the world. The sixty-acre c~pus today consists of fourteen buildings with two more under construction.

There are six national honorary fraternities on the campus. In 1942, Alpha Chi chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma, the first national education sorority at M urray, was installed.

History of Beta N u In the early spring of 1946, because of the increased enrollment and of the presence of only one education sorority, M urray State saw the need for another sorority. It was decided that this sorority should be A lpha Sigma Alpha. Thirtynine petitioners met Thursday, February 21, to discuss this new sorority af.ld to form a constitution. The newly petitioned chapter was to be Alpha Zeta and Miss Evelyn Linn was chosen faculty adviser with Miss Sarah Rhodes as pres-

History of Beta Xi

As the hill rises, so does the college on top of it. In 1889, the Oneonta Normal School was founded for the purpose of training men and women to teach children of New York State. The three year curriculum was changed to four years to fit the needs of the future teachers and in 1942, we became a State Teachers College. Our college in the "city of the hills" is educating and graduating people who will be responsible in their school classrooms, as well as the classrooms of the world. Dr. Charles Hunt, our president, stands for the courage, foresight and understanding for which we look and reach. .

The original Clionian society was formed in 1872. A fter the opening of the Oneot1ta Normal School, it was proposed by some of the young ladies there to form a literary society. Their request to Geneseo to become a chapter of the Clionian Society was granted, and in 1901, the 路 Beta Chapter of the Clionian Fraternity was chartered. The object of the Fraternity was to promote a sisterly feeling among the various chapters and among the members of each chapter, to foster a unity of interest between the several schools and to make the influence of the fraternity an ennobling and helpful one.

ANNUAL ALPHA ALPHA AWARD At Miami University, Oxford, Ohio

BETTY JEAN BROADWELL

The eighth annual fifteen dollar cash award given by Alpha Alpha of Alpha Sigma Alpha was presented at the last student assembly in May, 1946, when other student honors are given recogmtion. Since there were a greater number of freshmen women in Miami University this year, the honor meant even more distinction. Anna Linck, who was given the Alpha lpha award in 1943, graduated with honors June 2, \?Vas a member of Mortar Board, and received other honors during her four years in the University. It has been quite interesting to watch the "mo t outstanding" freshman girl continue with the same high standards of work. Betty Jean Broadwell, of Felicity, Ohio, is the one who received the distinction of the outstanding freshman girl in the School of Education for the year 1945-1946, and was presented the Alpha Sigma Alpha cash award. Betty Jean's activitie during High School included member hips in Glee Club and Orchestra; Vice-president of the Freshman Class and President when a Senior; a member of the Phi Beta Pi Club for high school girls; had a leading part in the Cia s Play in both the Junior and Senior years; assistant editor of the school paper and was salutatorian of her graduating class . She had time on Sundays to attend Epworth League, and be assistant primary teacher in the unday School. Betty Jean's scholastic average m the four years of High School was 96.9. vVe can understand why Betty Jean's cholastic average as a freshman in Miami Univer ity, majoring in Elementary Education for the year

was a 4.0 (straight A). She was a member of the Kappa Phi Cabinet; of the Y.W.C.A. ; Association of Childhood Education, and was selected as a Sophomore Councilor for 1946-47. We can expect great things frorri a young lady who has had such a broad cultural background during High School, and has had one year with the same high standard of work in the University.

REGION THREE'S PROJECTOR TAKES A TRIP The Red Cross Field Director at O 'Reilly General Hospital at Springfield, Mo., asked if the projector we had sent to the hospital, might be lent to a patient who was being moved to another hospital because O'Reilly was to be closed. We replied we should be happy to have our machine give pleasure to the patient, and the Field Director replied : " We have written to the Social Service Department at the Veterans Facility in Memphis, Tenn.,

where Mr. Firestone was transferred, advising that department of your generosity in making the projector book machine available to Mr. Firestone for as long as he has need of it. The veteran's full name is William Firestone, ASN 37505833. He is 23 years of age. "This office and the military send you many thanks for your fine and generous spirit in making this gift possible for Mr. Firestone." To add to our pleasure, we received a letter from Mrs . Firestone from which the following is quoted: "My husband and I wish to thank you very much for the ceiling projector machine. He enjoys it so much as that is the only way he has of reading. He punches the machine with his elbows as he has no use of his hands whatsoever. He hasn't been able to get up in a wheelchair for several months and won't be able to for a while so he entertains himself by reading a lot now. We appreciate very much your making it possible for Billy to have the machine."

AKRON, OHIO Akron Alumnae Chapter has had one meeting this Fall, and if all are as well attended, and enthusiasm stays as high as at that meeting, we should have a good year. The meeting was in September at the country home of Marion Mullin. We had not seen Marion at our meetings toward Spring of last year, and we were allowed to see the "reason", a darling baby boy who was born last May. There were eleven girls present at Marion's. Our new president, Catherine Loechler, has not been with us long, having moved to Akron just last year, from Columbus, Ohio. Even in that short time she has shown by her constant interest and willingness to help, that she would be a very good leader. We are looking forward to a busy and interesting year. We had a lengthy business meeting which was necessary to plan the year's activities and projects. It left no time for bridge which was our usual pastime last year. It was decided that we would have a varied program, perhaps book reviews, talks, bridge several times, a picnic for the families, a pot luck supper for husbands, and any other surprises that the program committee can invent. We are anxious to see the new year books to find out what is in store for us and who will have to do what. We may discover hidden talents. We are raising money by selling Christmas cards and other assorted cards. Besides giving our regular gift of candy and books to the Children's Home at Christmas time we plan to send a birthday card, enclosing a dime, to every child in the Home on his or her birthday. As there are more than two hundred children we'll have to keep check on the list and calendar to see that none is forgotten. We have lost two of our members and regained one. We are all happy to have Beth Washko with us again. Her husband is out of the army and they have again established their home here. We lost a very fai thful member when Marjorie Miranda moved to Springfield, Ohio. She had been with us for so long we will miss her very much. She never refused any job, and made a success of anything she tried. She is a lot of pep and energy in a small package. Marguarite Lohmiler has moved to Connecticut. Marguarite was with us for only one year but we realize that we have lost another good member and wish we could ha ve kept her. Louise Holt will be our next hostess for the October meeting.

Dear ASA's: Again as the months roll on, it is time to begin the regular alumnae news letters. While it is a duty it really becomes a pleasure. Therefore I gladly greet you one and all. Those of us who were not fortunate enough to get to Estes Park are grateful to those who were there and for the constructive work you did. The Alva representatives to the Convention came back so full of enthusiasm that it really became "catching". Everyone was thrilled with the reports the girls gave. Each realizes that ASA is not "local" but national and is doing a marvelous bit toward enriching the lives of its members. Our club members remained at home-that is, most of us stayed close to Oklahoma. However, our most traveled alumnae is Miss Racine Spicer, who was 路 chosen one of the one hundred teachers of French in the U. S. A. to be the guest of the French Embassy and spend July and August in Paris and other parts of France. She has just returned and is teaching in the Murray Kentucky College for teachers. Alma Lois Rodgers, who teaches in Lincoln, Nebraska, at the Methodist University, was a delegate to the National Convention of Delta Kappa Gamma in San Francisco. Her letters from the convention told of the splendid inspiration this gathering of teachers, from all states in the Union, is giving to its many members. Edna Donley was engaged in assisting to direct the activities in Camp Waldemar, Hunt, Texas, all through the month of August. This camp for girls is one of the very large camps in the United States and is most finely equipped for its purpose. l3arbara Dunn of Alva was our club representative to ASA Convention. She never tires of telling of the wonderful inspiration of every meeting. Marriage seems to have been the most prominent idea in the heads of many of our alumnae. I am not sure that ' I have heard of every wedding. The following is the list which I have had notice of-Lou Eva _Kragh to Donald Kenney of Alva, Oklahoma ; Wilma Greer to Albert J. Perrin of Quinline, Oklahoma; Catherine Wiebner to Edward V. Bergland of Minneapolis, Minn.; Emogene Cox to Ralph Gill, Alva, Oklahoma; Ruth Marcum to Arthur Leitzke, Dinuba, California; Clarice Benefiel to John W. Blamer, Wichita, Kansas; Ruth Riecker to Sam'! Scott, Bloom, Kansas; Meredith Donley to Quentin Hadwiger, Alva, Oklahoma; Joe Mae Hook to Dale Porter, Tahlequah, Oklahoma. To all of these we extend best wishes and most

sincerely congratulate every man in this group. Each man has a really true helpmate. We are glad that some are remaining in Alva and will be a part of the alumnae club.

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS Dear PHoENIX Readers: In April we journeyed to Charlotte Adam's in Watertown, and for once it didn't rain! Lots of business was done at this meeting. The Bragg Fund information is to be sent out on a special bulletin in the fall; Irma路 Wrenn is to be the chapter delegate to the National Convention. The Nominating Committee presented, and路 we elected the following slate: President, Ruth Mayo; Vice-President, Irma Wrenn; Secretary, Mable Peterson; Treasurer, Edith Lundquist; PHOENIX Correspondent, Charlotte Adams. Our Annual Swap Party followed, at which we had much fun getting rid of unwanted articles, and acquiring wanted ones, while a sizable sum went into the treasury. In May, an extremely wet rain changed the plans for a tour of the historic North End of Boston into a tour of the Old South Meeting House, plus a movie party, with supper at the Blue Ship Tea Room on historic T Wharf, and a nine o'clock sail on the East Boston Ferry! (We Bostonians are evidently good at making substitutions!) By the way, it was noted with interest that our Kitty Hale was married to a doctor, Commander E. L. Hammond, U . S. Navy. The Chapter voted to send her a linen square as a wedding present. In June came our annual Baby Party, at which the fortunate possessors of the Ma degree, (no punctuation), brought the evidence thereof, and the bachelor maids brought along borrowed offspring. Mrs. Dorothy Emmons was the hostess at her "farm" in Sudbury. The kids, old and young, had more darn fun viewing the animals, busting balloons, etc. and playi ng about in the spacious yard. Forty were present, which sets up some kind of record! CHARLOTTE L. ADAMS

BUFFALO, NEW YORK Hi Alpha Sigs. It's grand to be back again. !{ope everybody had a grand vacation 路 and we know the lucky g irls that attended Convention had a "perfectly marvelous" time. Before we give an inkling about our Fall plans, we must tell you about the June luncheon at the Park Lane for g raduates and recent brides. The food was "y um yum" and the singing enjoyable. We especially enjoyed Alpha Sigma Alpha Sweetheart sung by the graduates. There is something about that song that makes me very sentimental. (Yes, even at my age).

We were glad of the opportunity to extend our best wishes to the graduates and hope they will participate in alumnae doings this year. An interesting highlight of this commencement was the graduation of Betty Ansell and her mother Mrs. Marguerite Ansell in the same class. The first directors meeting was held at the lovely home of our president, Kay Strickland. There was so much to talk over that I left the house talking to myself. Kay announced that the first general meeting is on Oct. 21st at the home of Marion Clack under chairmanship of Lillian Viner. This is going to be a Coffee Klatch and the report from Convention will be given. We won't be able to wait until then after hearing about some of the episodes. Founder's Day will be held at the Park Lane on November r6th under the capable chairmanship of Mary Blackstone. Well we will have to bid you farewell till next issue but before we part I would like to introduce you to our new officers: President, Catherine Strickland (Mrs. Donald); Vice-President, Reva Kohn (Mrs. Norman); Treasurer, Lois Conroy (Mrs. George); Correspond. Sec'y, Melvina Holzman (Mrs. Justus); Record . Sec'y, Anna Lou Anderson (Mrs. Harvey); Courtesy Chairman, Constance Batt; News Letter, Betty Hamlin (Mrs. Clay); Directory, Phyllis Tatie; Publicity, Margaret Lienert; PHOENIX Editor, Mary Rapp (Mrs. Lester); Little Sister, Betty Short; Ex-Officio, Dorothy Ferrood (Mrs. Richard). Oh and I almost forgot . Just take a look at the announcements and see how Pi Pi is working for future Alpha Sigs. Love, MARY M. RAPP

CANTON, OHIO Back from convention with lots of vim and vigor for the coming year for A .S.A. Janice Marsh and Sue Campbell gave us a delightful meeting on the happenings at Estes Park and with all the souvenirs and pictures they had we almost got to know the National Officers, other representatives and guests from the other chapters. The next convention, I'll wager that we will have more than two from our chapter there. We got a lot of good suggestions for making money, which is our big job right now . Our chapter is small and the war years were hard on our treasury. Our first project is to sell paper products-stationery and wrapping paper assortments. Lots of other items are on the list but we will experiment on the first ones and see how we make out. MARY MILLER

CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA Twenty Alpha Sigs met at the home of Kay Lowry Pratt for a delicious luncheon on Saturday, October sth.

initial introduction to our alum chapter. We by no means forget Mrs. Lowry, Kay's mother who rightfully is also an Alpha Sig since she became a motherpatroness during Kay's days at Temple. It was good to see her again. The following meetings were planned for the remainder of the 1946-47 year. Each meeting is to be handled by the old system of group hostesses since transportation now permits traveling over more geographical area. In November the meeting will be held in Harrisburg, with Mary Wilson Aungst as chairman and all the other Harrisburg girls as committee members. The March meeting will be held in Central Lancast.er County, with Kathryn Bender Hill as chairman and ch,oosing her committee from that area. The May meeting will be held in Northern Lancaster County, with Margie Hoover Heisey as chairman and choosing her committee from those members in that group. At the close of the business meeting the president, Eleanor Dobler Brown called upon our guest Helen Corey to tell us about convention and to get us up to date on 路 ASA news. Helen with her two cohorts Pat Detrow, who is a graduate student at Temple and working on her Masters Degree and living at the house, and Naomi Hartman, now president of Kappa Kappa, a delegate to convention, gave us a fascinating word picture and showed snapshots of convention activities and personages. We were particularly interested to hear about the emphasis upon Life Membership and extension of chapters both within the alumnae area and on new college campuses. A lively discussion. followed relative to proposed extension in Pennsylvania. During her report Helen announced several important coming events for alumnaer. Temple Home-Coming weekend, November 15 and 16. 2. Twenty-fifth anniversary of Kappa Kappa to be celebrated in March of 1947. 3路 A Regional ASA Convention in Philadelphia in October, 1947. The gorgeous, warm October day, a charming home and hostess, a delicious and dainty luncheon and ASA news and activities all combined to make this the grandest alum meeting in history! Marion Nolt announced that within one month she is to be married to Dick Lefever and to live in Millersville. All her friends join in wishing her much happiness. Olive Wirth Eckenroth writes us that her father has recently died ~nd that she and her hi.Isband and young son have moved back to Hershey with Mrs. Wirth and are deep in renovating the house and making repairs. s.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS Dear Alpha Sigs, Since last we talked with you, via the PHOENIX, a wonderful thing has occurred here in Chicago. As an alumnae group famous for producing mostly boys, we are justly proud to present Ann Elizabeth Weegar-

future Alpha Sig-born to Frances and Ralph Weegar June 29, 1946. Your correspondent had the inestimable privilege of representing our group at the r8th National Convention in Estes Park. To make the personal acquaintance of our national officers, active deleg_ates, advisers and fellow alums from all over the country, to work and play with them was indeed a stimulating experience. I wish I knew some way to convey to you the feeling of our "national selves" which the Convention brought. Everything from the traditional "Hanging of the Chapter Shields" ceremony with the reports of each active girl, to the round-table discussion groups, just rife with constructive resolutionsevoked an awareness of what a vital, functional and inspirational organization our sorority is. Our group had its first fall gathering at Jeanne Ramsey's. Ten of us partook of Jeanne's bountiful luncheon (Frances was co-hostess) and swapped glowing reports of the summer's vacation adventures. Dorothy Masters, Myrle Patterson and Nelle Raney had all been up into Canada so there was quite a French-Quebecian atmosphere to the conversation. Naturally, I injected a few raptures of the "Hail Colorado" (especially Estes Park and Grand Lake) variety! After the "official" convention report and much passing of snap-shots, souvenir luncheon favors, etc., we discussed means of adapting the resolutions of the convention alumnae round-table to our local activities. You Beta Kappas down in Macomb, Ill., are due for some "Big Sistering" this year. And we are proud to state that one of your graduates, Mary Weinberg, is our president this year. We regret the absence of Wilma Mae Wolf in our group this year. She received her Master's Degree from Northwestern this summer and has accepted the position of Assistant Dean of Women at Rockford College. We miss you Wilma, but wish you all success in your professional endeavors and are anxious to hear news of your new life. One lost, two gained-Joyce Van Petten Blick comes to us from Beta Theta, Mt. Pleasant, Mich., and Lora (Mrs. Ronald) Smith will be journeying into the windy city from LaGrange on Alpha Sig Saturdays this year. If you know of any "Sigs" in or coming to Chicago will _you send their names and permanent addresses to me at 2253 Ridge Ave., Apt. E-1, Evanston, Illinois. Loyally yours in A.S.A. MARY A. McCREA

COLUMBUS, OHIO Moving into a new town is always a thrill for me, but this time it was doubly so, for I was eagerly looking forward to meeting the Columbus Alpha Sigs. Before I had been here a week, a letter came from Dottie Window telling me about the Chapter, and a few days later Perlina Albright took me to my first meeting. The girls were so friendly that by the end of the evening, I felt as if I had long been one of them.


THE PHOENIX

Our '45-'46 season ended in June with a family picnic on the beautiful lawn of the Window estate路. Delicious food and a pleasant evening were enjoyed by all. Ethel Wolfgram entertained the girls at the first fall meeting. The following officers were installed for the 1946-47 year: President, Rachel Van Hook; VicePresident, Mrs. Rodney Borror; Secretary-Treasurer, Mrs. Thelma S. Glick; Corresponding Secretary, Mrs. I van Creager; Program Chairman, Mrs. Charles Cummings; Assisting Program Chairman, Mrs. Edwin Montgomery; PHoENIX Correspondent, Mrs. Garson Lutz; and Publicity, Mrs. Ralph Johnston . After looking at the new year book we are assured of having interesting and varied meetings, thanks to our progam committee. Helen Miller reported a wonderful convention that was successful and constructive in every way. The rugged setting with the wide variety of recreation made it a most informal convention and the spirit was caught by everyone. This convention was a contrast to the one held five years ago. Helen attended both and said both formal and informal are needed. Best wishes to all in ASA, GRACE LuTz

. DENVER, COLORADO The Denver Alums, determined to make this their banner year, held their annual election of officers in May. Grace Dalby who had led us through one very successful year was elected President. Other officers were: Lucy Flanders, Vice-President; Za Lawrenson, Secretary and Treasurer; Irene Holland, PHOENIX and Press Correspondent. Polly Schlosser, our hostess, presided over a tempting tea table. Around the fire afterwards, Convention talk and plans held the center of interest. Estes Park-August 22-was a date we all wanted to keep. So Estes Park-August 22- was a date fourteen Alpha Sigs did keep. We left Denver by auto, bound for the Colorado Luncheon and the first day of the National Convention. How can we tell our experiences and impressions? Our official delegate says it was a very worthwhile convention. We came home very impressed with the high type girl our sorority is bidding. We came away filled with pride over the fine women guiding our destiny, the one and only Wilma Wilson Sharp, the others, gracious, charming, capable. The Convention Chairman. How did she do it all? The Music Chairman, wasn't she Tops? Our own Polly Schlosser with her shoulder to the Convention wheel. They were all just wonderful. As we left the mountain heights of Estes Park, we spoke anew of our inspiration to make this year the best ever in the Denver Alumnae Chapter. Now as we open our activities, we are happy to welcome these new names to our roll, Martha Chesnut Esridge, Frances Nichols, Kay Stewart, Doris Hansen, Patty McEwen, Ruth Voetsch, Doris Reiger, Gloria Scroggins and Helen Brown. Our first party got off to a slow start in a snow

storm. We had planned a mountain party at Vera Campbell's cabin, just like old times before gas rationing. But on Sunday morning, Sept. 22, it was snowing and cold-most unusual Colorado weather-. So the picnic was changed to the Holland's home and hearth in Lakewood, near Denver. There, twenty A .S.A.'s, husbands and children sat around the fireplace enjoying chicken pie and other good things, including a grand new game called Yap. We took a preview of other coming events-the Founder's Day Luncheon, Oct. 25th, at Daniel's and Fisher's Tea Room during State Teacher's Convention, a Sunday Nite Snack at Maurine McMullin's, and our traditional Christmas Brunch and Guest Bridge party. We are going to rent the Kappa Delta house on the Denver University campus for this popular event. Of all these you will hear in detail later because this is to be our best year of all best years. Yours in A.S.A., IRENE C. HoLLAND

DES MOINES, l OWA On July 14, 1946, in a lovely double ring serv1ce at the First Baptist Church in Des Moines, June Douglass became the bride of Dr. L. E . Owens. Dr. Owens is on the staff of the Wilden Osteopathic Hospital in Des Moines. The couple is at home in the Brown Hotel. September 24, Hildegarde Nissly was hostess to the Des Moines group at her new home, 3301 54th Street. The occasion was a party honoring June Owens who was presented with a white wool blanket bound in white satin. Pauline Black, Florence Harley, Albertine Geist and Myrna Hutchins were assisting hostesses. It was good to see Mrs. Barr, Leona Wilcox, Ferne Johnson and Dorothy Whitten among those present. Hildegarde's attractive brick home is practically a country estate set in the midst of enormous lots. Remember the baby that came to live with Hildegarde and George, named Ida Grace? Now she's a very attractive young lady, not only talented but sweet in both disposition and appearance, and she's in IOA at Roosevelt High. Edith Burr did not get to the party. She is suffering from low blood pressure and has to watch her P's and Q's. Here's a little news on the Dailey girls-Letha (remember how she used to play the piano when we had the AI ph a Sig house on 26th Street?) is now Mrs. Jack Russell. She lives in Coon Rapids and teaches music on the side. She has two boys and a girl. Mary is now Mrs. O'Conner. She now lives in Grundy Center but is moving to Waterloo shortly. Her daughter, Dailene Kay, was born May 2nd, 1946, and is a regular little doll according to Peg McCormick Dailey, her sister-in-law. Pauline Black will soon be joining her husband in California, near Los Angeles. He has bought a house and Pauline, Jane and Joe will drive west in their new Hudson along about Christmas time. How we are going to miss Pauline!

Julia (Douglass) and her husband, Ji~ Butler, have gone into the restaurant business in East Des Moines. Julia says it keeps her just plenty busy. Georgia Barton lost her father this summer. She and her mother live at 2822 University Avenue in Des Moines. Georgia was doing work for "Look" magazine, the last I heard. Albertine Geist is a very proud grandmother. The baby belongs to her daughter Elva Louise. Albertine's own little boy, Kenneth, is grown up and the Army is wanting him soon. Imagine our old Alma Mater with three fellows (at least) to every girl? Well that's the way it is at Drake this year where more than 6ooo students are enrolled . They say the fraternities with no membership limits, are pledging on a wholesale scale. Now Come on some of you Iota Iota members who were going to drop me a line so I could have a little more news to add to our space in the PHoENix! Sure would like to hear from you-printable or not. Des Moines Alumnae plan to have about three meetings this year. The next one will probably be in December or January. Maybe some of you could join us if we let you know when. The best of greetings to all of our Alpha Sig sisters everywhere. s路mcere1y, FLORENCE HARLEY

DETROIT, MICHIGAN With the pungent odor of burning leaves pervading the atmosphere of a most beautiful fall day we met at Florence (Flossie) Boening's home on Fairfield Avenue for our October meeting. This first meeting at Flossie's lovely home has become a tradition with Detroit Chapter which augers well for an organization such as ours and lends dignity and charm. Louise MacArthur and Juva Bissett Beaman were co-hostesses and the attendance was gratifying, twenty-one being present. At the business meeting which followed a delicious dessert, Frances (Alvord) Vredenburg, our new President, presided. Frances teaches in Detroit Public Schools, also does Teacher Training for Wayne University besides performing her various household duties. A full report of the National A .S.A. Convention at Estes Park, Colorado, was submitted by our President who was our official delegate from the Detroit Chapter. In addition to her report which was inspiring, many interesting sidelights of the Convention were related by Mrs. Sara Jane (Dodge) Bumgardner and Louise MacArthur who attended as guests. Various philanthropic projects for the coming 路year were discussed at this time and committees appointed to investigate and report fully at the next meeting. This discussion consumed more time than usual because of the interest involved so bridge was forgotten for the afternoon. Mrs. Boening (Flossie) joyously announced the arrival of a new grandson, Franklin Thomas, to her daughter and son-in-law. Unable to attend this meet-

ing was Mrs. Charles K. Bartow (Pat Dingeman) who is "trekking" to Delray, Florida, for the winter. Our very best wishes for improved health accompany her. We are looking forward to ou~ next Dessert Bridge which meets Saturday, the 2nd of November, at Marion Parker's home on Penrod Avenue, Rosedale Park. Marguerite Irwin and Helen (McBain) Robinson will assist. KATHLEEN (SHAw) ScHWAB

EMPORIA, KANSAS Our first meeting this fall brought two dozen members of Emporia, Kansas, Chapter together for an evening of planning, visiting and a few games of bridge. Mrs. A. T. Sughrue, our new president, took charge of the meeting; Miss Celeste Conklin, secretary, assumed her duties as secretary, and Mrs. Everett Fish was introduced as our treasurer. One of the topics of conversation seemed to be new ways to make money for our "building fund " for the chapter house that we hope to own someday. Last year we had rummage sales, food sales, and sold theatre tickets, but this year we would like to have a few new ideas to keep interest high in order to reach our goal. Miss Edna McCullough, a faculty member, attended national convention this summer and is to make a report during October meeting, as sh~ was unable to be present at the September gathering. Mrs. Sughrue urged us to think of some way to celebrate Founder's Day this year-we usually entertain the active chapter with a dinner and program. Interest seems to be running high among our alums this year. Several of them were back for reunion of Epsilon Epsilon Chapter in August, and there will probably be quite a few Alpha Sigmas here for the Homecoming events at the college this month . I hope that we can have ciur picture taken at the October meeting as planned, and have it for you in the next issue of PHOENIX. Good luck to you all this year! MARY ANNA McCLENNY

HAMPTON ROADS, VIRGINIA Hello everybody . This Alumnae is planning for quite a few activities this year. We will report on them .in. due. time. We had our 路first meeting of the year at the home of Ann Ireland . We plan to alternate our meetings, meeting day or night at the homes of our members. The object of our last meeting was to elect officers for this year. We elected the following officers: President, Mrs : Ray Shield (Winifred Rew); VicePresident, Martha Holloway; Secretary, Mrs. Steel (Mary Lee Utley); Treasurer, Mrs. Harold Sayles (Shirley Rawles); Correspondent, Mary Margaret East. We made a trip to the convention that was held in Colorado this summer, via Mable Brumley, who was president of the Beta Epsilon Chapter at Madison


THE PHOENIX

34 College, Virginia, last year. Mable had pictures and really made us feel that we had been with the A.S.A. This summer Ann Ireland made a trip to Boston, Massachusetts, and Utica, New York. My family and I took a motor trip to California by way of the Southern route and returned by the Northern route, taking in places of interest in this great country. Some of our members have been married since last year, but we will send their names in later. We will have more news for you next time. MARY MARGARET EAST

HUNTINGTON, WEST VIRGINIA vVe of this chapter feel that we are off to a fine start for this year and hope this feeling applies to all other chapters. Our first meeting was held at the home of our new president, Mrs. Freda Paul. She is a very tiny and dainty but energetic and resourceful person and I'm sure that under her capable leadership we will have a very rich and pleasant year. One of her clever ideas has been put into effect already . It helps the treasury and also adds something of interest. As the first hostess, she initiated the idea of a "door" prize. The chances were sold for IOC and the prize was contributed by Mrs. Paul. Our treasury was .quite a bit richer, and my apartment was made brighter by the addition of this knick-knack, as I drew the lucky number. We are planning a Hallowe'en Masquerade party and dance for November I, when we will entertain our husbands and dates. Loyally yours in A .S.A, MARGARET

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA Dear Alpha Sigs, Another year has begun with 路 surprises and excitement galore. Our first meeting was held on September 23, 1946, at the beautiful home of Letha Gaskins with twenty-four members present. Each girl has had an interesting summer-what with convention, traveling, just relaxing, etc. Eloise Proctor spent a summer of travel and excitement. Montgomery, Alabama, for a month, then on to California to attend the wedding of one of her favorite nieces at Glendale in the Wee Kirk of the Heather. Spent a month in Los Angeles and took in all the tourist "musts". Irene Mason enjoyed having her little girl home with her during the summer months. Marie Kingdon spent most of her time house hunting. Most important of all was the birth of her new red-haired g~anddaughter. Esther Burge spent her vacation relaxing. Jean McCammon taught Human Relations and Child Psychology in the Salvation Army Camp at Shagbark Camp, Camp Lake, Wiscons.in . Betty Rice attended the Arts and Skills Classes at

the Red Cross preparatory to teaching at the Veteran's Hospital. She also enjoyed a trip to northern Canada. Julia Gerlach went to New York and Boston. 路 Helen Emick spent her vacation up home with her parents. Frances Shaw enjoyed working in her yard. Jane McDavitt and her husband spent several days at Warsaw. Lena Grumme spent the summer at her cottage on Lake Wawasee. She also enjoyed the visit of her three baby grandchildren-not to mention diapers, bottles, high chairs, formulas, schedules, and all of the "musts" concerning babies. Adelaide McCarty visited in the East. Dorothy Karrmann and her husband enjoyed a few days at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago. Sue Ann Messing spent some time at the lake, but mostly sewing, shopping, and getting her daughter, Jane, ready to enter Stevens College. Margaret Schofield visited friends and relatives in Los Angeles. Betty Soland took her ch.i ldren to Cincinnati to the Zoo and other points of interest. Helen Noblitt moved and enjoyed taking care of her baby girl. 路Peg Snedeker took a trip east to her home. Her entire family was together for the first time in seven years. Florence Lull cared for her brother's two children during the summer while he attended Northwestern University. Genevieve Leib was most thrilled to have her son home from Europe. They vacationed in California then Genevieve attended the Convention and helped make it a great success. Letha Gaskins visited many places of interest in the East, then attended the Convention. Thelma Thomas has just returned to the city, her husband having been recently discharged from the Army. We are more than glad to have her back with us . Bereneice Lamb had a most wonderful time at the Convention. More exciting news about Bereneice later! Evelyn Hall traveled to Northern Michigan with several friends . Emma Cowan went back to Ohio University where she and her former room mat~ were initiated into Mortar Board, which was Crescent when they were in school. I, Edith Miller, spent the summer taking care of my son, David, and doing the usual household tasks with an occasional week-end up at my father's farm. Briefly, it has been a fine summer for all. We are thrilled and happy to have had Eloise Proctor appointed National Alumnae Editor of the PHOENIX.

It was a pleasure to all to receive an invitation to the wedding of our president, Bereneice Lamb, who will be married to William Martin at 10:30 A.M., on October 5, in the Irvington Methodist Church.


NoVEMBER,

1946

We are also thrilled to have Margaret Schofield announce that she would be married to Edward Louis Emery, Music instructor at George Washington High School, on Thanksgiving day at the Tuxedo Baptist Church. We congratulate both girls and wish them many years of happiness. Letha, Bereneice, and Genevieve gave us such interesting and exciting reports on the convention that we feel we missed a lot by not being able to have attended. They feel that it was one of the best conventions ever. The highlight of the eve~ing was the party honoring Bere~aeice which was planned by Letha and Thelma Thomas. Letha, acting as announcer and master of ceremonies, conducted a quiz program over station BLM (Bee Lamb and B. Martin). The microphone was a bird (Martin) house on a handle. Each of us pulled a question out of a decorated bird cage. Letha read the question and if we answered ours correctly, we received a prize. The questions, answers, and prizes all pertained to lambs (Lamb) and birds (Martin). Bereneice answered the jack pot question, receiving as her prize a lovely place setting of her chosen sterling silver pattern. The first five winners of the final contest were honored by being seated at the beautifully decorated table with the bride-elect. Delicious refreshments of coffee and wedding cake were served. As always at Letha's a delightful time was had by all. We are anticipating a wonderful year and you will hear from us again in December. EDITH B. MILLER

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI Hiya Gals: It's been some time since we have written to you so guess we'd better bring you up-to-date on what's new in Kansas City. In April we had a luncheon at Mrs. Cook's tearoom. Following the luncheon we held election of officers. Those elected to office were Evalyn Evans, president; Bettie Lee Asbury, recording secretary; Mary Kay Reiff, editor. Those elected to chairmen were Kathryn Keirns, publicity; Ruth Fleischacker, philanthropic; Lora Murrell, ways and means; Mary Moore, directory; Dorothy Kreek, auditing. So with those members of the board still retaining office and with the new , members we feel that we have a pretty active group of officers and committee chairmen. Of course our May meeting was i~stallation of officers. This ceremony is always impressive and I think that we all renewed our pledge to serve Alpha Sigma Alpha more in the coming year. Evalyn Evans, our newly elected president, was our delegate to National Convention at Estes Park. Others from Kansas City attending convention were Wilma Wilson Sharp, Esther Bucher, Phon Johnson and Mary Kay Reiff. The Board met once during the summer and once before our year's meetings started. At these Board

35 meetings we discussed plans for making this year a great one for the chapter. Have you ever wished that you were back in college and could help with rushing again? Well, we did just that, but we weren't in college. We decided that there were a lot of Alphas who had recently moved to town and also there were quite a few who didn't get out to meetings too frequently so we just had our opening meeting of the year a rush tea. The tea was held on Sunday afternoon, September 22, at the Hearthstone. Individual corsages were presented to each guest. The table decorations were an arrangement of pine, sumac and ageratum. Phon Johnson presided at the tea table. In spite of the heavy downpour of rain we had a good attendance. We all had an enjoyable afternoon visiting and then hearing about convention. Guess that will bring you up-to-date on our activities. We have big plans for the year so will let you know all our .news of what we're doing as the year progresses. MARY KAY REIFF

KIRKSVILLE, MISSOURI Our first Alumnae meeting of the year, The Beta Chapter, of A.S.A., left every one with a feeling of completeness in again being engrossed in A.S.A. activity. Helen Deverman Hunsaker, with Helen Campbell Young and Marjory Davis Roberts assisting, bravely undertook the first "get-together" of 1946-47 year. "Bravely," I say for there are thirty-eight members listed in our yearbooks (And what yearbooks! but I'll get back to that later) and we all say, "I'll try to be there," leaving the hostesses uncertain as to how many to prepare for. We had nineteen for our first meeting with two actives. Marie Wheatcraft Daugherty, President, presided. The yearbooks were handed out and Gladys Neville went through it, pointing out such interesting plans as a "Precious Gift Party" for November, a " Record Party" in January. These路 we'll hear more of as they take place. Ruth Voorhees, with two actives, Ferne Woods and Doris Reed, told of the Convention they attended. They were so enthused with their Convention experiences that we felt we were well represented. We're planning a big Founder's Day. Banquet in November. All A.S.A. look forward to this event.

LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS Dear Girls, The last weekend in May found many of the alumnae gathered once again to share a weekend of fun, frolic, and fellowship. The old spirit bloomed as large as ever and old friends were united and shared in the gossip that floated about. Blossomtime was really bursting forth the weekend of July seventh and eighth, when the alumnae held a joint meeting with the active chapter at the Frederica Hotel in good old convention fashion.


THE PHOENIX

Heading the alumnae list was Harriet Umstead, vacationing with her parents in Newpoft; Jean Frances Trice, Frances McGinnis, and Dot Wilkerson--each on vacation at her home. From their homes and jobs in Little Rock came Emy Mitchell, Polly Whitehusband and son, Ferrell Adams, and Barbara McDonald. Rosemary K. Hamm joined the group for the banquet that night. We were proud to welcome a new group of alumnae-Betty Ruth Joyce and Peggy Hime, prospective teachers at Bald Knob and Stuttgart respectively; Ruthy Worm, Jean Lile Baker (now Mrs. S. C. Tucker), and Glenna Jo Phillips. Plans were made for the Alumnae Chapter to award each fall, at the beginning of the new school term, a five dollar cash pri:?e and the PHOENIX Recognition Pin to the returning member of the college chapter that has the highest grade point average from the previous school year. A member is eligible for this honor for one year only. Some of the gossip that floated around about our alumnae was: Wand a Green was wed to a Mr. Armstrong from Plainview, Arkansas. La Nelle Siegel has accepted the assistantship as Spanish instructor at the University of Wisconsin and will work on her M. A. Fayedene Carrol Hannah and husband are living in Colorado while he is a student at the University of Colorado. Yours in Alpha Sigma Alpha FRANCEs McGINNis

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA Alumnae Delegate to the National Convention at Estes Park was Miss Lucille Stevens, who was very enthusiastic upon her return . Lucille is also the Alumnae Chapter President, and she gained many ideas about improving the meetings, and how the chapter can gain membership. Lucille made the trip by- automobile with two active chapter members .:...._ Miss Dorothy Holland, and Miss Helen Hartwick. The girls had a grand time together, as they also visited the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park . At the Cabinet Meeting on September I3, the yearly calendar was planned. A Founder's Day Dinner was planned for November IS. The middle of December will see a Christmas Party to which the members of the active chapter will be invited . Valentine's Day will be celebrated on February IS, and Hermes Day in May will be a meeting at a restaurant in Hollywood on a Sunday mornmg. On May 25, I946, the Los Angeles Alumnae Chapter had a luncheon at the Tick-Tock Tea Room in Hollywood in honor of Hermes Day. Thirteen members were present, despite the fact that was the day of the national railroad strike. On February 23, I946, Carol Connon Colfax ~as

married to Mr. Robert D. Clifton at San Diego, California. Mr. Clifton was discharged from the U. S. Army prior to February. He is originally from Fairbanks, Alaska. Mr. Clifton is associated with a magazine and publishing firm in Santa Monica, California. BARBARA HELD

MUNCIE, INDIANA "The scenery was magnificent and superb, but we did get more than our share of the rain"-quoted Frances Miller at our first alumnae meeting of the fall. She was路 relating to us the activities and the thoughts of the girls and the various Chapters at the Convention, to which she was a delegate. The Convention was brought before our eyes by the interesting manner in which Frances told us about her trip and the wonderful time she had. The enthusiasm and new ideas she obtained will carry her and the sorority through another year of plenty of pledges, much inspired activity, and to another year with the Chi Chi Active Chapter on the top rung of that well known ladder. Having brought along her programs, schedules, and souvenirs, she was able to bring to us: memories, for those of us who have been lucky enough to go to convention; longings, for those who still have that trip to look forward to. There were those grand chapter meetings, where all the delegates of the college chapters got together and exchanged ideas and asked questions; the model initiation; the friendly spirit of sister chapters; and those wonderful and exciting banquets, that always demonstrated some theme with "out of this world" place cards and table decorations . Such talent and ingenuity! If all of this doesn't get you into the mood of everything, there are the sorority songs and always "Auld Lang Syne" comes up and shuts off the wind in your throat. Our alumnae chapter received quite an inspiration from Frances, and she brought with her Virginia Haga who was supposed to hold her hand-in case she needed it-because we were old sorority members and we would probably be very critical of her report. I think she found us not so terrifying and she found that our discussion seemed limited to one or two subjects-husbands and children! After Frances gave her report we took up the business phase of our meeting. We decided to map out a yearly schedule or program giving the dates of each meeting and the places where each meeting was to be held. We then hope to send each member a copy at the beginning of every year. This should eliminate a great deal of absenteeism, and we hope the attendance will increase due to every member knowing the time and place a year in advance. It isn't your dues that is so important, but your presence. Our next topic for discussion was Mrs. Mary Whitcraft. Did all of you know that she has ,resigned as adviser of Chi Chi? The actives are planning a dinner in her honor at Ball State homecoming, and the alumnae are invited to attend . Both the actives and alumnae are presenting her with a gift. But I'll


NovEMBER,

1946

tell you all about that in the next PHOENIX edition. We hope to have a grand get together. All of us can remember Mrs. Whitcraft as a driving power urging us along when we faltered. We needed her to help get Chi Chi Chapter ."up" and "on" its feet; and, 路as I recall, we needed 路her for this purpose more than once. Mary Whitcraft must feel very good and very proud when she looks back and sees how she raised us from a baby, gave us encouragement, help, and much untiring energy, and she must feel good when she sees what a wonderful child she has helped develop, and when she sees how this baby grew and became bigger and bigger, until now this child "Chi Chi" is a well developed child with sparkle, charm, wit, intelligence, good sense, and a wonderful future yet ahead. Things never seemed to get started or to happen until Mary Whitcraft came rushing in. We will miss her very much, but we hope she comes to every meeting. The new adviser, who is filling Mrs. Whitcraft's vacancy, will assist us in the traditional Alpha Sigma Alpha style, and we will sail along in our red and white yacht as chipper as can be with nary a stiff breeze too tough for us to handle. We had several letters from alumnae aH over the country, and some have new little Alpha Sigs and some have prospective husbands for other little Alpha Sig's elsewhere. We will be looking for you at our next meeting. Do come and join in the fun, gossip, and business. JUNE W IDMEYER

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA Our New Orleans Chapter really isn't quite in the swing of things yet this year. May of '46-our last meeting before the summer-found our chapter steadily decreasing! Polly St. Clair and her husband Harvey were transferred to another city. Betty Lu Straughn Langston is now living in Shreveport, Louisiana, where her husband, Henry is doing his interne work . So that left only about five Alpha Sigs in New Orleans. That is, five we could get in touch with. We are hoping that all the Alpha Sigma Alpha's in New Orleans and near-by will please call us so they can get in on some of our fun for this year. Last year we had several business meetings as well as a few social gatherings. We visited the Navy hospital and did several other things to help our community as best we could. My but this letter sounds like nothing ever happens way down south in Dixie-don't let me fool you. In spite of all those who left our chapter we are still carrying on. Evelyn Frost Meadows is living here now. Her husband is a Lieutenant in the regular navy and is stationed at the Naval Air Base on Lake Pontchartrain. We, Hilda Giraud, Ethlyn Dannekar and Janice Haydel, had a wonderful dinner at her home several

37 weeks ago. We also met the boss of the family-little blond haired, two year old Jimmy. Last month another Alpha Sig left New Orleans for Lafayette, Louisiana-Ethlyn Dannekar was married to Kenneth Fairchild and is making her home in Lafayette. Hilda Giraud attended t e wedding and said Ethlyn was a very lovely bride. At a shower given by Hilda Giraud for Rosalie Hamic (not an A .S.A. but a Southwesterner) there were several Alpha Sigs-Evelyn Meadows, Sybil Glaser Vandermer and Janice Haydel. It was a lovely shower, Hilda had everything fixed exquisitely and it was such a surprise to Rosalie. Of course, the main topic of conversation was school days. That never fails when two or more of us get together. Now don't forget, Alpha Sigs, call Hilda Giraud at Franklin 6145 and let us know where you are and how we can contact you . Ou~ next meeting wili probably be on Founder's Day, November 15, and we want to make this year a bigger and better year for the Alpha Sigs in and near New Orleans. We'll be l?oking for you .

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK Convention must have been a "hypo" to everyone this fall-it seems as though the New York Chapter is geared just a little higher already. All the gals are much more alert, interested and full of the good old A.S .A. pep. The first meeting of the year was a "humdinger" and carried an all-high in attendance. Imagine thirty people-and for a starter. Of course, the fact that Em Frost was having a novel "Brunch" meeting was a come-on to all. And was it nice! Em had the serving system beautifully organizedand her committee worked like a charm. Her gals were Clare Ross, Mary Schmidt Zuchow, Ginny Duffy, Ginny Whidden, Gerry Westphal, and others who kindly pitched in. Her system was to seat the folks as soon as they doffed their coats and hats-serve them their fruit juice, scrambled eggs "fluffy-as-can-be-frombeing-cooked-in-a-double-boiler"(Park School of Cookery hint), bacon, homemade rolls, coffee, etc. Then, to make room for the newcomers, she shoo'd the first sitting off to the living room with their second cup of coffee to sip and chat over. The system was perfect, and is certainly worth handing over to others who may have space difficulty plus hot food problems when serving a large group. After "Brunch" was over, Gertrude Yorke quieted us long enough to open the meeting-and it was packed full of news. First, Em Frost told us of the social end of Convention-with accent on dinners, decorations, and programs. Gertrude discussed the business part of Convention. We were especially honored at this meeting by having two new alums join us-Juanita "Nicky" Cutting, Beta Epsilon, who is living in Englewood, N.J., at present, and Alice Anderson, just returned from Chicago, is another house-hunter in New York City


THE PHOENIX

area. In addition, six new alums joined our ranks by virtue of job openings in the New York area. They are, (and we certainly welcome them), Gloria Lloyd, Marion Hulse, Evelyn Dox, Sue Wetzler, Gerry Westphal, (all recent Oneonta grads) and Ruth Hallas-a Cortland graduate. Other welcome faces at the meeting were Esther Robinson, who has been down Missouri-way for quite a while; Lenora Fagerstrom and Charlotte Sprenkle. Welcome to all of you, we're tickled pink to have you with us again. Oh, and to think I almost forgot to fete the romantic part of the meeting. Our two newest brides, Mary Schmidt Zuchow, and Buff Fagan Sundt were there. And leave it to Em Frost, who probably figured the best way to give a bride skill in the kitchen was to break them in at a sorority meeting. Both girls slaved in the kitchen that day and were really good. Plans for our second initiation were made for November 2, at which time more Oneonta and Cortland Alums will join us. So far, the people are: Toastmistress, Olive Watkinson; Introduction of Officers, Virginia Duffy; Speakers, Nicky Cutting, Lillian Ferguson, and Gloria Lloyd. We're hoping to have National officers with us at this initiation, and we hope the food situation won't limit our banquet plans. We're sorry to announce that Mary Solway asked to be relieved of Vice-Presidential duties this year, but she added that it would be hard to carry on from where she is now. Am I right when I say Rochester? Betty McGrath also sent in her resignation as Treasurer, because her home-building and decorating program can only be carried on over weekends, which would necessitate absence from almost all meetings. We were sorry these girls had to resign, but we fully understand their set-ups. In their places Olive Watkinson was elected Vice-President and Em Frost as Treasurer. Plans for the October meeting at La Guardia Field were cancelled and instead Beverly Klopp has opened her Farmingdale home to us. The November meeting will be at Carolyn Wasgatts in Hackensack, N. J. While we're mentioning programs, here's what we have (tentatively) on our agenda for the year: December-Christmas Party. January-White Elephant Sale and Tea or Dessert 路 Party. February - Apartment Luncheon at Rosamond .Root's and Ida Jewett's. Leonora Fagerstrom is also a hostess. March-Luncheon at Enrico and Pagliere at 23rd St. with a sightseeing trip after luncheon. April-Luncheon at The Golden Horn (Armenian) and Theater Party. May-Meeting at Hyde Park at Phyllis Traudt's. June - Garden Party at Ruth Zapp's at Upper Montclair, N. J. Late June-Beach Party at Jones Beach, Long Island. And again speaking of programs, Pat Ward de-

serves a vote of thanks for the job done on the chapter directory. Thanks to Esther Manson for her work on the program arrangement. We had a guest with us who attended with Ruth Zapp. Welcome Peggy Haines, won't you join us again? Another drive was made for Life Membership and Olive Watkinson, Ina Clark, and Ginny Whidden paid in full right off. Madelaine Verrichio, Virginia Duffy, Margy Hart, Mary Zuchow, Buff Sundt, Marion Hulse are making part payments and will be Life Members soon. Clare Ross, Gloria Lloyd, Sue Wetzler, and Nicky Cutting took out PHOENIX subscriptions. Such a start at subscribing will bring us closer to our aim of roo% at the rate we're going. Well, that just about covers what went on at our first meeting, but, as you can see- we covered a lot of territory. Of course, what's hard to record-but what was certainly ever-present, was the grand feeling to be back with Alpha Sigs again, sense that old spirit, partake of the usual gab-fest, and just have a grand time with such a swell bunch. Yes siree-that's our New York Chapter. BILLIE BARRETT

* * * * Inasmuch as we couldn't write all the gossip in the Newsletter, here's a Walter Winchell Special on our chapter. Polly Holland finished up her degree at Columbia in Banking Research- but questions arise now as to whether or not it will be shelved in lieu of culinary and home type of career. The answer is obvious - Polly just announced her engagement to Gil, and will be married at Christmas time. Em Frost, as an example of "give full measure"Em gives in all directions. To start with, she gave her New York studio-school apartment to Oneonta's adviser, Helen Bundy and family, for a week's vacation in New York. She gave a free 20 hour foods course at her Park School of Cookery to any Alpha Sig interested . Bride of the summer, Mary Schmidt Zuchow was one of the users of the measuring cups. Em was made chairman of the first night dinner at Convention, and in addition to making all the plans with her committee spread all over the nation, Em made all the table decorations for it herself. The cloud on the horizon is the "possible" eviction of Em from her Park School of Cookery. Gee, Mr. Mayor, you can't do that to our Em. Speaking of t;ngagements, Shirley Ainsworth is to be married at Christmas time also, we hear. Did you know we're getting quite a number of interior decorators in our chapter? The list now giving the unions a run for their money are:Margy Hart, Betty McGrath, Glad Kaiser, and Billie Barrett, all of whom have been raising blisters and getting sore muscles-but their places look spic and span now. Em was a member of the decorators' union this last summer and as soon as she completed it-in came the eviction notice. As to who did what this past summer: Clare Ross took a twenty-eight hundred mile auto trip through Canada; Olive Watkinson said she had plenty of food

at her Camp Wa-Klo and did her best to keep fifty children healthy and happy. Ina Clark hasn't been feeling too well lately-gee, sorry Ina-hope you're better soon. Since her marriage in July, Buff Sundt has moved three times. Where do you find all the places to move to, Buff? Lillian Ferguson went to California this summer, and at the last meeting was pinch-hitter for secretary-in-absentia. Sorry you were ill Elsy Jessup. Same to you Kathy Duncan, and Phyllis Traudt. Did you know that when Marie Zavislan (Eastern Airlines lady) attends a meeting, she has to take her holidays coming to her in advance? I think the next meeting will be her Fourth of July holiday that she is giving up in order to come to a sorority meeting. Now that's A.S.A. spirit-!! Esther Manson was a recreational director this summer. Martha Morse is really tied down now that she can't get a sitter for her little Gill. Marion Hulse acquired a sail boat and an English setter over this summer. Ginny Duffy went to Syracuse University as a starter on her Master's. We hear that Ethel Peterson i.s commuting via plane between Buffalo and New York these days. The story goes that they have the ground for a house now-but can't build on it as yet. Patience Ethel-or how about a tent? We hear Margaret Gorton was still in Maine come the end of September. Oh for the life of the leisurely. Ginny Whidden has a new Home Ec. job in the Floral Park High School. Good Luck, Ginny. Well, that's about all the breeze that was shot my way. BILLIE BARRETT See you later.

New York Alum's Red Letter Day When the word reached us of Oneonta's and C<;lrtland's installation dates, we immediately took out the red pencil and encircled May 25th as our Red Letter Day. Plans which had been planted in our minds suddenly vegetated and bloomed, and initiation of Clio alums materialize9 at last. The initiation took place in the lovely studioliving room of Em Frost's amid a setting of palms, candle light and soft music. A neighbor of Em's graciously loaned her apartment for the comfort of the new initiates while Em's place was set for the ceremony. Polly Haworth's music added a final good touch to the whole affair. Without divulging any details, it can be summarized that it was as lovely a ceremony as the beauty of the ritual itself. Following the initiation, Em served a light refreshment to hold us over 'til the banquet. Then, the group taxied to the Gramercy Hotel where an excellent dinner was served and (shall I say) a friendly rather than formal-welcome was extended to our new members. Lynn Davis was our gracious toastmistress, Ruth Zapp introduced the officers of the chapter and proved to be an artist in her verbal sketches of our members. (And you said you couldn't give speeches, Ruthie. Little by little you're letting 路 us in on those hidden talents).

39 Before going on to say who else had a part in the program, it must be mentioned that into every well planned ointment there is a proverbial "fly". Ours was that our Red Letter Day was the day of the weekend chosen by the railroads for their nation-wide strike. Remember!!! That made everything tough, because, with the exception of a handful of Manhattan members, most of us had to get into the city by train. It also meant that all material and paraphernalia used for the initiation and banquet couldn't be posted or expressed. Kappa Kappa Chapter hurdled the first problem for us by sending us their paraphernalia with Marie Katz and another girl (whom the bus company wouldn't even allow on their already over-loaded bus). But Marie got the things to us in person, for which we were most grateful to her, Helen Corey and the Kappa Kappa's. Then, Evelyn Bell, who was going to be in charge of initiation and was coming down from Buffalo, had to cancel because of a last minute announcement of her city examinations for a principalship. (Since then we have heard that Evelyn came out tops in the onethird group who passed the exams. Heartiest congratulations, Evelyn Bell). Then a few of the other people who were scheduled to speak at the banquet were, for train-strike or other reasons, detained from attending. All of which meant a lot of pinch-hitting and last minute speech making. Em Frost read Evelyn Bell's word of welcome and theme on "Attain." Billie Barrett stole a glance at Buff Fagan's well prepared notes as she was being introduced, and suddenly realized that her own last minute pinch-hitter's speech was on the same theme as Buff's. So with the change of a few words in Billie's speech, and the complete docking of Buff's when she got up to speak and clever spur-of-theminute impromptu speech making, we felt that the A.S.A. themes were ably handled (?) and sealed with a hand shake under the table between Buff and Billie and a side remark of "Nice going pal." So the day was saved. Again Polly Haworth 's music led us in sorority song favorites, and informality was fostered as Gertrude Yorke had each of us tell something of what we were doing. Where modesty inhibited, Gertrude supplied the justified laurels. Twilight had fallen over little old New York when we had pushed back our chairs, gathered our corsages and favors and joined the hum of the city streets and familiar noises of the town. Many who couldn't stay on for Em's Slumber (?) Party had to start early to battle homeward with the strike-bound throngs. But twelve o拢 us returned to Em's for the comforts of pajamas and chatty fellowship. And that we had. All of which whetted a goodly appetite for the midnight snack Em had for us. Nothing less than a huge roast turkey, cheese, jams, milk and cookies were revealed in her refrigerator raid . Now a Slumber Party is a . misnomer. It never 路 meant sleep-and it never will. Why it's called that is beyond me-why it isn't called a "Who-made-that


THE PHOENIX

pie-bed", or "Fashion show of mattress garbs" or "Four-in-a-bed-and-look-who-sleeps-on-the-floor." Party for the Sleepless seems a more propitous title to me. So, typical to some of the above mentioned substitute titles for a Slumber Party, we paraded our sleeping outfits (of which Don Frost's borrowed pajamas were seen on most of us-good thing he had cleared out of town). Then we ran the gamut of all the tricks on each other that camp and college days have ever brought forth, and the ice-box , took another foraging about 4 a.m. by a few insommaniacs. Morning found a few sleepy lines under our eyes -but spirits none the worse for wear. Breakfast K. P . was volunteered by all to hurry the food along. Then that delightful leisure of good "chin-chin" over the second cup of coffee. Ah me! By that time the railroad strike was settled and we all wended homeward- mellowed by the fun, and good friendship that only an Alpha Sig gathering BILLIE BARRETT seems to provide.

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA Hello Alpha Sigs! So much has happened during the summer that we hardly know where to begin . It's a good idea to begin with the best; so we'll begin with Convention. It couldn't have been better. The Kappa Kappa's of Temple University and the Nu Nu's of Drexel Institute of Technology held their first meeting of the 1946-1947 season on Saturday, September 2rst, at a luncheon in Huyler's Restaurant, Philadelphia. Ginny Hutton, Marion Clark, and Helen Corey as representatives to the Alpha Sigma Alpha Convention at Estes Park, Colorado, portrayed to us vividly all the happenings which really made all of us who couldn't go to Colorado envious of these three girls. Marion and Helen gave us interesting antidotes on their horseback adventures in the wee hours of the morning. It sounded like lots of fun and I am glad to hear that our Convention turned out to be such a big success. At our recent meeting, our President, Marion Powell Clark, handed in her resignation. This was due to the fact that at the Convention she was elected National Registrar for Alpha Sigma Alpha. We all are very proud of you Marion, and know that you will do your best as you always do . Congratulations 路 tn you. Edna Bowen was also at our meeting. Haven't seen her for a long while and hope she will become one of our "regulars." I have lots of news to tell you, so here goes. Frannie Lawrence (Nu Nu) and Howard Powell were married in May. Can't remember exactly what date. Frannie made a beautiful bride and no one could help admiring her. I know Howard couldn't take his eyes off her. They are now living in an apartment in Reading, Massachusetts.

Gladys Turner (Nu Nu) now wears a beautiful sparkler on her third finger, left hand . Also Glady~ is leaving our Quaker City and moving to Kansas City, Missouri. We are losing one grand girl but then, our Alum Chapter in Kansas City is gaining a good Alpha. Sig. Good luck to you Gladys. We certainly will miss you. 路 Betty Anne Schreiber (Nu Nu) was married on June 8th to Eugene McClain. Betty and hubby Gene are living in an apartment in Philadelphia. Rae Schaeffer (Nu Nu) and Jackson Reed were married in July. Ginny Cameron Simon and Ed have the darlingest baby boy, Tommy. Pictures of him were shown at our meeting. He has pretty curly blonde hair and just as cute as ever. He was a year old in May. At present the Simons are renting a home in Swarthmore. Doris Baskwill Hubiak had a baby boy in August. She is living in Berkley, California, with hubby Paul. Bobby Butterworth (Nu Nu) had a baby boy this past summer. Congratulations to all of you from all of us . Betty Barringer moved to Boston, September rsth. You will be missed by all, Betty. I was so glad to see in an issue of the PHOENIX Ruthie Zapp (Nu Nu) and Pat Ward (Nu Nu) have been attending the Alum meetings of the New York City Chapter. I know that the New York City Alums must be very happy to have as newcomers into their Chapter these two grand Alpha Sigs. Glad to hear you had a nice vacation in Maine, Ruthie. Bette Reimet (Kappa Kappa), incidentally yours truly's sister, and Jane Livingston, (Kappa Kappa) are now in training at the Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University, in New York City. No glamour is connected with _this school. They wear long blue uniforms with white aprons, black stockings and low heeled oxfords. They also have to keep their hair in a net. They get up every morning at 6 a.m . and have classes to 5 p.m. I'm mighty proud of you. Of course I'm not prejudiced!!!!! Mary Ann Hardy McCloskey (Nu Nu) and husband, Jimmy, have a darling apartment in Philadelphia. You lucky people. Shirley Maines Trice (Nu Nu) and husband, Perry Trice, are another lucky couple in having a sweet apartment . . They live right across the street from me in Moorestown, New Jersey.

PI'ITSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA Hello Alpha Sigs, Greetings from the Pittsburgh Alumnae! Since our PHOENIX Correspondent, Ada Meyer, and her small daughter, Christine, are now vacationing in Saratoga, New York, I am ta~ing this opportunity to write a bit of news from th1s section of the country. We are finding it somewhat difficult to get started this fall due to the power strike here. With transportation tied up and a hotel strike as well, we h.ave been unable to plan our meetings, many of wh1ch have usually been held in the Pittsburgher Hotel. But we are not to be daunted by such circumstances and we hope to get our program under way very soon with a special Founder's Day meeting. We are doubly anxious to have a meeting so we can hear all about Convention from our own Sally Horter who represented us. She writes that she has much to tell us when we get together. And, judging from Conventions I have attended, I know she had a wonderfully stimulating and worthwhile vacation with all the grand gals in Alpha Sig. I hope we have more news for the next PHOENIX. . Loyally in ASA, JANET BENEDICT

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA The Richmond Chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha although separated at times spent a most enjoyable s~m­ mer vacation. Not all of us were able to travel dunng the past months and so we were able to meet at various times. Two of the larger meetings found the girls attendin(Y o a movie and afterwards having a soda together and then again playing bridge at a member's house. Thoughts of summer however drifted i~to memories at our October meeting as we became mterested in plans for Winter, '46. Our greatest thrill came toward the end of September when word reached us that one of our members, Mrs. Thomas Dotterer Eason, had been named the winner of the Wilma Wilson Sharp Award for 1946. Mrs. Eason attended Farmville, S. T. C. and was a member of Alpha Chapter there. Congratulations Mrs. Eason 1 One of Mrs. Eason's daughters, Caroline Eason, is again back at Farmville. Caroline is supervising tea~h­ er training of the primary grades i~ the ~ollel?e Traming School. We shall miss <;arolme th1s wmter but wish her the best of success 10 her new JOb.

They named him Francis Edward, Jr. This summer we also had to say goodbye to Ann Shelor, who was married to Warren Wyatt Cooley, and who is now living on the West Coast. May I extend to the A.S.A.

When Ali~e Bro_wn told us last spring that they we~e to be stat1~ned m . St. Louis permanently, we were delighted and Immediately elected her for our VicePresident. Imagine our disappointment this summer, when the Coast Guard sent Commander Brown and Alice to Honolulu for two years! We are not a bit happy over this order but will like it very much if they are returned to St. Louis at the end of the two years. . We are looking forward to having a new member this fall. Nola Newton De Mott, Epsilon Epsilon, has moved to our city. Her husband is with the Veterans' ~dministration here. Nola called early in June and said she wanted to know us but could not give us a permanent address at that time. They had subleased an apartment for a short time and she did not know what would happen to them after the lease was up! What happened? Nola had to take the baby and go to her family in Emporia. Kenneth was really on the job hunting houses as he found one and they are all settled with a phone and everything. Nola has asked us to have a meeting with her which will be a real pleasure, we know. It would be fine if more Alpha Sigma girls would do as N?la did in contacting us. Webster 1462 will reach Elizabeth Woody and Laclede 9258 will reach me. We would love to tell you where we are meeting and the dates. I must tell a little bit about my s~mmer. I think I am really a convention gal. I had been East in March to th~ Girl Scout convention and found myself going back over the same route in June to attend an Ameri<;an Association for the Instructors for the Blind convention at Watertown, Massachusetts. We enjoyed the Boston "Pops" concert, the general atn:osphere of Boston and the surrounding country. The mcest part of the trip was a visit with Ellen Nolan Wright when we stopped in New York. Ellen, who was an Alpha Sigma at Kirksville, has been in the New York Institute for the Blind since 1930. Her husband was the principal of the school and Ellen taught there before two little girls came to live with them. After Harold 's death in 1939, Ellen returned ~o teaching there. Carol, who is ten, and Sherry, who IS seven, have had a very busy mother these last few years as Ellen has been working on her Master's Degree at Columbia. This year, Ellen has gone 路 to Patchogue, New York, to be in a public school. She will have more time with her youngsters and says that "so fa r" it seems to be a perfect "set-up." After spending a month with my family and the very nice people who make La Plata such a GOOD town, I returned to St. Louis to teach in a business school for four weeks. After a week at camp with my blind girl scouts, I found myself back in the same routine I had before-teaching and hurrying! Time just goes too fast. We are expecting to have a good winter for the Alumnae. May the year be a pleasant and profitable one for all of you. Yours in A.S.A., BETTY DoosoN CARPENTER

SOUTH BEND, INDIANA The South Bend Alumnae Chapter had its first fall meeting Saturday, October 5, in the form of a br~akfast at the Oliver Hotel. Following breakfast, Mtldred Zoss told about convention results the fun and plans. It looks as if we're going to h~ve a full year. ?fficers will continu~ for another year, as our chapter 1s so young. The next meeting will be a Founder's Day program at the home of Vera Pearce Roberts. Let's hope every alumnae chapter is just so much the better for the grand and inspiring convention this fall. A.S.A. greetings, PEG SIEBER

SUFFOLK, VIRGINIA Poor Harriet-our o.a.o. at the convention. We have reaHy talked the poor girl to death; "tell us some more" is all that we could say at our last meeting. It has truly been an inspiration to our chapter to have had such a capable and alert person as Harriett to be with all the Alpha Sigs in Estes Park, and I am confident that she made quite a name for herself while there. We are just plain proud o' her. It seems as though our correspondence with you has been nil for quite some time, but with all the plans that Harriett has in mind for us I am sure that our little space for news will not be "for rent" this year. Goodness, you haven't heard about our luncheon at the Hotel Elliott. It was in April that we had the Norfolk Chapter as our guests for a bridge-luncheon a la gabbing, at the Hotel. 'Twas really loads of fun, and we hope to make this an annual event. Betsy Bullock, now Mrs. H . T . Walker, has moved down to "Gawgia" with H. T. while he's in school there, so our new secretary is Mary St. Clair Bugg. Remember Annette Rogers Carter! Of course, she was here to help us organize, then zip to Philadelphia, then to Texas, and goodness knows where elsewell now she's here to stay, we hope. At least she is in North Carolina-quite near the border to Virginia, close enough so that she will not miss any meetings, I can assure you. . We are really looking forwa rd to a big year-just watch our smoke!! Bye for nowA SuB

TULSA, OKLAHOMA As I sit down to write these notes I am reminded of these lines "And what is so rare as a day in June" but I'm convinced of the true answer; it must be a day in October, for Indian summer in October is perfect. It is certainly a miracle of nature to blpssom forth, after a scorching July and August, in all her array of prairie gay feather, goldenrod, galardia, sage, wild asters and bittersweet. The air even smells of romance -a whiff of it came our way when we learned of the marriagt; of Odessa Herriman, August 3, to Robert D.

Then on September 14, we all were ushered into our pews at Rose Chapel, Boston Avenue _Method_ist Church to witness the ceremony of V wla ( Srs) Caraway to Joe Hutch Brewer of Tulsa. It was a pleasure also to meet the charming mo_t~er, sister and brother of Sis from Logansport, Loursrana. Best of all, Odessa and Sis are going to make Tulsa their permanent home. After joy comes sorrow for it is indeed difli~ult to part with Hazel Row, a fait h £~ member who rs very dear to us. We met again in Hazel 's home to say our "regrets" and "farewells" ; also to present her with a lovely vanity as a remembrance gift. We hope Atlanta, Ga., has an alumnae chapter to welcome her because she is certainly worth knowing. Our October meeting will be a covered dish luncheon at the home of Jennie Fisk and in November we observe Founder's Day with a tea in the home of Lora Patterson Sipes assisted by Mary Lewis Darby.

WASHINGTON, D. C. Just returned from our October meeting and I must tell you all about it. The meeting was held at Clara Teller's lovely apartment in Arlington. We were all so interested in her Mexican furniture and curios. It was a pleasure to ride out there in Ellen's beautiful new Buick convertible. We were glad to welcome Pat Pumphrey from Beta Epsilon Chapter. Pat is teaching school this year in Arlington. . Since the last issue of the PHOENIX our presrdent, Ellen Mitchell, has changed her name to Britton. It was a lovely August wedding, and we are so glad that Ellen is staying in Washington. She is teaching school in Maryland, while Jimmy is attend ing the University of Maryland . Our first meeting of the year was held in September with Frances Spencer who also lives in Arlington. We made many plans for the coming year, the most important of which is a tea to be held in Novem?er for all freshmen from this area who are attendrng Madison College. But you will hear more about that next time. KATHRYN DAY

State Teachers College, Farmville, Virginia

Greetings Alpha Sigs: Summer at home was super, but being back with all the A.S.A. gals is really the life. After unweaving a few spider-webs and dusting chairs the chapter room looks its usual inviting self. Whenever one sees a crowd of sighing girls, you can count on finding Lucille spilling off another of those thrilling experiences at the Convention!! She always manages ~o have something new and interesting to tell us. This year has already brought us two surprises. First we have Doris Burks and Kythern Kennedy' back with us, and secondly, Peggy Cabeness has a flashing diamond! Incidentally, her eyes are flashing too with delight! Also we have Frances Harvery from Madison with us. Tuesday we met in front of the library to have our picture taken. You can count on a big year ahead from A.S .A.'s here at Farmville with Miss Wall and Lucille as our leaders. 'Bye Now, BETTY LEWIS SHANK

ALPHA BETA Northeast Missouri State . College, Kirksville, Missouri

Alpha Beta is starting with a swish this fall. Twenty-one active members have returned to give the Alphas tops in sorority membership on the campus. First on the agenda was to listen to Ferne Woods and Jean Reid give with an account of the ravishing time they had at the convention and to gaze longingly at the super pictures they brought home. Our first social event was sponsoring open house for the campus. Alpha Beta entertained the first open house with torch songs by Dee Fairchild and Virginia Bleason .and a radio skit by Ferne-borrowed, incidentally, from Marion Clark's clever one at the convention. Also we gave a very glamma reception inviting the other sororities. Our newly formed trio, Dee Fairchild, Joy Johnson, and Margaret Quinn, gave with the vocals, while Virginia Gleason sang a solo and .Wilma Salter played. Ferne Woods and Mary Quinn presided at the tables. The whole affair was strictly special and "ohed" and "ahed" by the other sororities who wished

they had thought of it first . Six of our hubba hubbas, Mary Quinn, Margaret Quinn, Ferne Wo 0 ds, Martha Ruth, Noemy Gomez and Dee Fairchild were paraded in the fashion show and looked scrumptious. Beauty and the Alpha Betas! The college annual has finally seen' the light and gone the Alpha way. Both the editor and business manager, Ferne Woods and Mary Lierly, are Alphas. Th~ Homecoming will soon be here and we are all thinking like mad to dream up a super-duper float. Also we are all beating feet trying to get acquainted with our fifty freshman girls to pick out the cream of the crop. With our fine gang of girls we should really be able to get them. MARY LIERLY

Dear Alpha Sigs, It was really wonderful getting back to "good old I. S. T. C.'' again. My, you should see how the place has changed! Men and more men, freshman customs, exciting football games and Saturday night dancesjust like old times! The convention out at Estes Park must have been a great success from the report given by our delegate, Madolyn Conrath. "Connie" was thrilled at meeting the girls from all the other chapters and was just bubbling over with things to tell us about her trip and the convention. You can imagine how surprised and happy we were to receive the Efficiency Award for the past year. We never expected anything like that but it will inspire us to try to do even better next year. We think the songs Connie brought back with her are so cute. She sang several of them for us and we are 路 trying to learn some of them too. This summer was an exciting one for several of our Alpha Sigs. Marion Smith became Mrs. Les Marietta. She and Les are now living in town and both are attending I. S. T. C. Wanda Levergood, who graduated two years ago was also married. Betty Kellar and sister, .Natalie, are both flashing lovely new rings on their left hands. Our president, Nat Slagle, started a Round Robin letter this summer, which was a lot of fun. It was interesting to hear about what everyone was doing. There are so many nice girls in the freshman class this year at I. S. T . C. that we are expecting to have a big rushing season. Here's hoping! Guess this is all until next time.

After a Icing summer's vacation there was much to talk about when we had our first meeting in September. 路 One of the main topics was our convention this summer. Many of us were able to attend since our college is so close to Estes Park . We were happy to have two new members at our first meeting, Vera Beaty and Pat Kamenky, who were initiated at the convention. Fall quarter rushing occupied most of our time during the first two weeks of school. Rush captains, Lou Huber and Janel! Haworth, had planned a series of parties which kept us very busy. Our work was climaxed with a preferential dinner which our mothers' club served. During the summer wedding bells rang for several Beta Beta members and pledges. Active members, Ruth Montgomery and Margaret Crum; pledges, Roberta Cameron and Phyllis Nickerson; and alum, Dorothy Litch, have changed their names. Edith Joppa and Roberta Ehrman have announced that it won't be long until they add their names to the list. Homecoming preparations were made in October. Oct. 12 was the big day and our house was decorated and we entered a float in the first homecoming parade since the war. Cloyce Vaughn and Pat Kamenky were in charge of the decorations . Our candidate for Homecoming Dance Queen was Jean Young. DoROTHY BEcKER

What a ~usy time we here at Gamma Gamma have been having. "Rush" season started almost before school started and our big rush party has long since been over but not the effects. We have ten new pledges of the grandest gals we ever claimed sisterhood with. Besides, we have had homecoming already. You should have seen our float. It didn't win a prize but we sure had a lot of fun anyway. Then too, the actives and two of our mother-patronesses had a breakfast for our homecoming alumnus. It was super too. The marriage minded coeds on our campus are watching Alpha Sig gals with a new interest. I don't blame them . We have had five of the .active girls of last year married since school was out in the spring. How's that for a record? Gee! I almost forgot to tell you about the outdoor party the actives gave for the pledges down at Mrs. Warrick's. There was lots of food and then we sat around the fire and sang-you guessed it-ASA Convention songs. They sure go over in a big way. Before long now, you will find all of us dressed alike on special days such as assemblies. We ordered some A.S.A. shields and are going to sew them on our white sweaters. That's another convention idea. VELMA NI CHOLSON

Dear A . S. A.'s: for Epsilon Epsilon Chapter, the 1946-47 school year started off in splendid style for rush week ended on Sunday, September 15, with the pledging of thirteen new members. The successful rush week parties were climaxed Friday, September 13, with our traditional " Hearts Win" dinner, the formal preferential party of the week. Early Sunday morning, the pledgesto-be were serenaded and brought to the chapter house for the pledging service, at which Mrs. Georgia Snyder Petersen, a charter member of the chapter and mother of one of the pledges, was a guest. Mrs. Petersen, Mrs. Irene Loren Pierson, and Mrs. Mildred Overton Teichgraeber, mothers of pledges and alumnae of the chapter were special guests at a dinner that noon, given by the active members for the new pledges. Miss Jane Ladner, active faculty adviser for the past three years, is now teaching at the State Normal School, Silver City, New Mexico. Until another faculty member can be chosen, Miss Edna McCullough will act as faculty adviser and Mrs. Grace Terrill, an alumnus, will attend meetings as a sponsor. 路 Dinner guests Monday evening, September 23, were the new Dean of Women, Miss Mildred Mitchell, and the two Alpha Sig alumnae on the faculty, Miss McCullough and Miss Dale Zeller. After regular meeting Thursday evening, October3, the chapter was surprised by a shower given for the house by the Alpha Sigma Alpha Mothers' Club, Mrs. F. A. Knoepple, president. Mrs. Rose West, housemother, served refreshments. During October, Epsilon Epsilon Chapter will hold open houses for the fraternities and independent men's group. All members of these groups and their wives are invited. Our annual hay rack ride will be held October 27. This year it will once again be a date affair, with pledges supplying the program . The pledges are also busy with plans for their formal dance to be given for the active chapter on November 9路 Thus Epsilon Epsilon Chapter is already underway on a new school year and wish a happy and successful year to all other Alpha Sigma Alpha chapters. Yours in A.S.A . N ANNETTE WHITE

All the old members of Alpha Sigma Alpha were glad to get back to school this fall after a summer of conventions, vacations and all kinds of fun that can be had when lessons are not in the way. We reall y miss some of our sorority sisters of last year. We are very glad to have our president, Betty Urban, whom you all probably remember from the convention, back with us this year.

Hi there, Alpha Sigs, Isn't it grand to be back at school after that long KAPPA KAPPA but wonderful vacation? All the girls have returned Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with heaps of new plans and stimulating ideas for the coming year. Hardly anyone can wait to get started Dear Alpha Sigs, We were all so anxious to get back after a wonderon the social activities which we are looking forward ful summer, and to get ready for another "bang up to enjoying this coming year.

Dearest Alpha Sigs, Vacation is now a thing of the past-but the effects are still vivid and developing. This post-war summer proved wonderful and successful for all ( especially those who had no summer classes). Judy and "Mike" loved their Colorado trip, and we spent the better part of our first meeting eulogizing the convention. Their experience was a thrill and there should be man.y more to make all Alphas really united. Their enthusiasm has spread and 路it is so keen, that during meetings we have two pledges writing continuously as the ideas develop. Boin! Plans include our annual Harvest Moon Dance on October 26th. Everybody is holding each other's ears during the intermission as we (informally) sing "Shine on Harvest Moon" . Our fall term weekend will be at Drexel Lodge on October 16th and 17th. We hope to see as many visiting Alpha Sigs as possible. Congratulations to Rita Dobash who was elected Theta Chi Fraternity "Personality Sweetheart." Rita is one of our charming pledges. And to seniors Elsie Crouthamel, Lois Young, Jean Kellett, Nell Durst, and Judy Mainwaring also go hearty congrats for making Who's Who. Rush parties will soon_ be burning our midnight oil-so now we study, like mad. We have all returned to school, wiser, more mature with the conviction that this year will be different; we will study steadily, instead of the usual cramming for mid-terms and finals. Boin!! . .

Dear Alpha Sigs: Fall is here again hailing rush parties, snappy weather, football games, and the inevitable books. It also hails the return of two very enthusiastic young ladies, Mary Ellen Cork, our president, and Helen Hartwick, our treasurer, from Convention. By now Xi Xi Chapter has been compared to every other Alpha Sig chapter in the U. S. Needless to say, it puts us on our toes. A quick look around us and we discover that our past prexy, Dot Holland, flew to New York on the Constellation, no less. Flying East, she passed over Naomi Aim, an alum, motoring home west after an earlier trip to the Big City. We find also that Mr. and Mrs. Evans Connolly, nee Dorothy Lollier, have decided that they much prefer our Sunny California to Minneapolis. Meanwhile, however, one of our alums, Cathyrn Schwarz has decided to leave us for a scholarship to the Juillard School of Music. Cathy is one of our "We point with pride" Alpha Sigs and she sings for her supper. Another one of our gals who

49 loves music is Mel Long. Going inactive for a semester, she is working as assistant to the Director of Music in the Santa Monica Public School District. And then, there is the pledge, June Morris, who caused quite some excitement at our first meeting with a diamond sparkler on the old third finger, left hand. All Juney could do was smile, but then that was all right 'cause we were all smiling with her! Our schedule for the coming weeks is incomplete as yet, but it does reveal a slumber-less party, a visit to The Drunkard (the play, that is), and most important a trip on a rooter's train to Berkeley to play our "mama", the University of California. Team don't fail us now! This is just about all the news until next time, so I remain, Yours in A.S.A . MAGGIE JANE E cHoLs

PI PI State Teachers College, Buffalo, New York

Dear Alpha Sigs, Greetings to all of you from the girls of Pi Pi who learned the hard way that the housing shortage is no joke. Yes, we had to give up our beloved Tudor Castle, and, in spite of a spirited house committee, we couldn't find another house. In spite of our "houselessness" the year got off to a flying start with a supper meeting at "Edie" Wolf's darling apartment. We were all ears for fascinating news about co.nvention as furnished by Mary Ellen Seibert, Evelyn Bell, and Mrs. Heyman. We were delighted that convention was so successful, and you can imagine that every one of us resolved to attend the next Alpha Sig conclave. Since that first get-together we've been meeting at school in one of the lounges. Of course, rushing is the absorbing topic of the moment, and the various rush committees are buzzing with plans for a super rush party and a lovely formal tea. We are still talking about the plight in which Betty Ansell (our 1946 Sweetheart) and Betty Aeschbach (last year's editor) found themselves in September. They were just about ready to start packing their lesson plans and board a train for their first teaching job. Imagine their surprise when news that the school had burned down reached them. School facilities were eventually provided, and the duo is carrying on in true ASA style. Everyone is so proud of Marilyn Grotzka who authored a magnificent choric drama which was presented at Buffalo State's 75th anniversary celebration. "Grotz", who is also president of the dramatic club"Casting Hall", came back to school with a lovely diamond ring on her left hand. Joan Steinmiller attended a recent meeting, and she was, as always, very welcome. "Steinie" took several group pictures at the close of the meeting, and we are all anxious to see them. "Mo" Lyons, editor of the '47 yearbook, has also joined the ranks of our engaged and we mustn't forget the crop of summer and early fall weddings. Pat


so Phillips, Carol Fredenburg, Ruth Benzinger, Betty Gene Trieber, Betty Ann Fitzgibbons, and Johanne Cunningham all made lovely brides. Every now and then we manage to catch a g}impse of Barb La Vigne, an Art Ed. senior and a gal who has her talented finger in numerous pies. Her biggest job is presiding at the meetings of Alpha Society, Buffalo State's highest honorary organization. We know that Barb will do us proud. That's just about all the news for this month, but we'll keep you posted on Pi Pi's busy calendar. Love in ASA DEBBIE O'HAGAN

RHO RHO Marshall College, Huntington, W. Va.

Now that we have begun a new school year here at Marshall we are extremely enthusiastic about planning our social calendar for the year. Our calendar will include three informal dances and one formal dance for each semester. The first being a farmette dance to be given October r8, at Camp Mad Anthony Wayne. Our plans are to include our brother fraternity-the Alpha Sigma Phi's. Expenses for the dances are to be shared jointly. A formal dinner dance will follow on Founder's Day. The program will center about the achievements and history of our sorority. We also are eager to continue helping with the 20th Street Mission by ways of donations, and entertainments. The events during the summer were quite thrilling inasmuch as we held meetings in order to make arrangements for picnics, swimming parties, hikes, and hay rides. Sincerely, JuNE NoBLE

SIGMA SIGMA Western State College of Colorado Gunnison, Colorado

Dear Alpha Sigs: We have really started our fall term here, with a bang! Our college has several hundred more students than it has ever had before. Therefore, most of our time the first two weeks, was taken up in trying to become acquainted with new girls. Mrs. Billie Swope passed chocolates to her sorority sisters, at our first meeting. Billie was married, just before school started, at her home in Fowler, Colorado. On Wednesday evening, October g, our active members were the guests of the Gunnison Alumnae group of Alpha Sigma Alpha , at a dinner, at the cabin of Mrs. George Besse. Everyone had a most enjoyable evening. We are now hard at work on our rush banquet, which will be on Wednesday of this week. Two of our Alpha Sigs were selected as candidates for Homecoming Queen, when we play Colorado School of Mines, on October rgth . They are Helen

Hello Alpha Sigs: Skirts and sweaters, white wool socks and saddle shoes, and that M. S. T. C. sch,ool spirit have been taken out of mothballs once again for another year ot fun, football and basketball games and queens, formal and informal dances, picnics and parties, books and professors, a yearbook and another graduation. Now that rush week is over, we all agree we wouldn't have missed the fun for anything, not even the knowledge we could have crammed into our heads, had we studied. The scene of our informal rush party was a gypsy camp by the lake at the Country Club. Carrying out the gypsy theme, a camp was formed in a semi-circle about tht> edge of the lake with a covered wagon, tents, chicken coops, bales of hay, a small fire over which hung a large black kettle, and in the center of the camp was one large fire. Invitations were made in the form of a gypsy's head (brightly colored with tempra paints), and the invitation was written inside a large gold earring on each one. Several cars formed the gypsy caravan bringing the rushees to the camp, where they were greeted by Jean Keown, our vice-president. Each guest was presented with a small silver good-luck charm bearing the letters ASA. The gypsy cook served hot dogs with chili sauce, relishes, coffee, milk, and rolls. As actives w~ have never enjoyed one of our own rush parties so much as we did our formal party this year. Our theme was "The Stork Club" and the invitations, covered with gold satin with a stork in top hat and cane on the front, were written in the form of a recommendation for admittance. The clubhouse was decorated to represent the "Stork Club" with a red bar at one end. Toasts were written above the bar fro;n which soft drinks and open-face sandwiches were served throughout the eve路 ning. The tables were arranged in a semi-circle in front of a small stage. They were decorated with white table cloths ruffied in red and a red candle placed in a star candle holder on a circle of red covered with silver stars. Menus with storks in black and red listed the drinks: "Alpha Atom," "Kuchs Zombie," "Alpha Sig Sling," Phi Phi Phizz," and "Mint Delight." Janet Drennan, our president, was mistress of ceremonies. She introduced the celebrities present who provided entertainment-piano solos, an interpretive dance by our Sue Philp, a xylophone solo, and songs by our trio. Cigarette girls, wearing white aprons with red ruffles and black top hats, carried small silver trays and presented the favors and wrist corsages to the rushees. We are now the proud "mothers" of nineteen charming new pledges.


NovEMB~R, 1946

'â&#x20AC;˘

This is homecoming weekend in Maryville and we are all taking an active part in the festivities planned. Cheerleaders Doris "Tex" Polk, Sue Philp, Elaine Woodburn, (all Alpha Sigs this year) are organizing a big pep rally for the night before the game-big bonfires, a snake dance, and all that goes with it. The Homecoming Queen will be crowned the night of the game- four of the five candidates are Alpha Sigs! At the end of rush week, the Sigma Tau frat joined us in giving an informal dance in honor of our pledges. We all met at Residence Hall and went to the Country Club in a group-it proved to be a good "get-acquainted" party. Doris "Tex" Polk and Janet Drennan, our representatives to the convention this summer, brought back inspiring reports of the work of Alpha Sigs all over the country. And we envy their association with the national officers- after hearing so much about them we almost feel as though we know them, but we would like to have a personal introduction to each one. We have re-lived every minute of the convention through the vivid accounts given by Miss LeMaster, Doris, and Janet. Now that things are underway this fall of 1946, Alpha Sigs, as usual, are representing our enthusiasm and leadership ability in all the campus activities. Our president, Janet Drennan, is Vice-President of the Student Council and Pi Omega Pi. Sue Philp, our rush captain, is President of Dance Club and Swimming Club and, also, one of the cheerleaders. Sarah Espey is President of the junior class, and Vice-President of the Home Economics Club. Jeanne Steward is President of Green and White Peppers, and Treasurer of the senior class. Clem Shivley is a senior senator and parliamentarian of the Student Council. Doris "Tex" Polk, our Registrar, is a senator on the Student Council, and one of the cheerleaders. Jeanne Keown, our Vice-President, is a sophomore class officer, and secretary of the Residence Hall Council. Marilyn Partridge, our Secretary, is treasurer for the Residence Hall Council and the Home Economics Club, and she is also secretary of Green and White Peppers. All our members are active in at least three organizations on the campus, and I'll tell you more about our officers and honors next time. That's all for now and here's wishing you good pledging.

CHI CHI Ball State Teachers College, Muncie, Indiana

Hello Peoples, We're back again. This year we didn't even have to take time out to shift gears. Everybody arrived in third and it's been full speed ahead ever since- 6o miles per. Fran's high octane spirit hangover from Convention has us all "hepped up" and conditioned for another year's driving. We are very sorry to inform you that we have lost

one of our main springs. She is Mrs. Whitcraft, who has served as adviser so faithfully for twenty years. We really hated to have her leave our fold, but she's still around and will always be a loyal Sig. Mrs Oliver Bumb is our new adviser and she really has the spirit. But that's n9t all we have that's new-also four patronesses-Mrs. Howe, Mrs. Turmail, Mrs. Wetmore and Mrs. Collier. Out first trip of the year was really super! We had a big rummage sale that netted $ror .oo, not to mention a day of good ol' ASA fun. Jeanie Stellingwerf (pledge, that is) proceeded to be the traditional card when she donned some of everything (and I do mean everything) and canvassed the dorm. The next day we held a tea at Mrs. Bumb's home for all new faculty members. Confidentially that's where we annexed our four wonderful patronesses. Next on our itinerary came "rush" and our cochairmen, Van and Jo (Prom Queen) Whitcraft, chauffeured us expertly. Our first party was the "Gypsy Caravan" at Heekin Park. It was one of those "let your hair down and have a wonderful time affairs ." The other party was a formal dinner at the "ASA Plantation." It was beautiful, with southern hospitality that would make the Mason-Dixon line cry for shame. We sure liked our parties and evidently we weren't alone because eighteen of our rushees decided that they would like to do our pledge duties . We welcomed them whole-heartedly at a song fest at Mrs. Bumb's home, where actives gave their paddles to little sisters. Now that our Chi Chi jalopy has all of its new parts, we are speeding along toward Homecoming. We will have a float in the parade. We're carrying out the "Welcome Home" theme, complete with a shanty (Sig built) and a small building at the corner of the lot bearing the sign, "George Washington Sat Here." We can't forget the beautiful side drops made of red and white crepe paper rosettes which say, "Welcome Home" and "ASA." We're happy to have Midge Boss back from the Wac's to pilot us through our first post-war Homecoming activities. Jean Hower is our candidate for the queen of this annual event. The big dates are Oct. rrth and 12th, so that's our next stop. Well, Sigs everywhere, best I sign off and leave some room in this book for you, but before I do I want to hope that you're highways have been as smooth and pleasantly eventful as ours have been so far this year. Yours in ASA, I sABELLE STARKEY

THE PHOENIX

were together again. Psi Psi's four representatives at the national convention have all been raving about the wonderful time they had up in Colorado and about all the grand girls they met. Our adviser, Miss Clio Allen, accompanied our delegate, Betty Sue Allison and our three representatives, Ruth Bonnette, Clair Ruffin and myself, to the convention. I'm sure none of us will ever forget that wonderful trip or the inspiring officers that we met there. Here at Northwestern State, the Alpha Sig's started rushing off with a bang. First we gave our informal party for the rushees. It was a progressive dinner where each course of the dinner was served at a different house in town . We ended up at the ASA house for dancing and singing. The formal rush party was given on October 3路 The Psi Psi's led the little rushees from this new western world into the heart of ancient China. While visiting China, our rushees were attracted by a huge papier mache dragon, complete with scales and red eyes. Everyone sat on the fl.oor and ate their food from low tables in the regular Chinese manner. Peering down on the new Rushees was a large buddha. During the party we were entertained by a Chinese dance, a skit called "East meets West", and by a soothsayer's wise fortune telling. All of the ASA's looked very oriental in their kimonas and blackened hair. A royal goodnight was given by the singing of "Alpha Sigma Sweetheart" and "Goodnight, Alpha Sigma Rushee" . Fourteen girls accepted our bids and we were very pleased with our Fall 路rush season. They are a grand group of girls and I know they will be wonderful Alpha Sigs. A luncheon was held October 6, at Hotel Nakatosh, in celebration. We hope to give a hayride for the new and old members on the r8th of October. That's about all the news for now. Best wishes and good luck to all you Alphas. Love in ASA BARBARA RICHTER

BETA GAMMA Northeastern State College, Talequah, Oklahoma

Dear Alpha Sigs, It's wonderful to be able to relax and not have to worry about the girls who will or won't pledge ASA. We pledged sixteen girls on September r 3, and had formal pledging on October 8. Now we'll be able to have our shoes and rooms clean. We really aren't getting too much rest because there is more activity on the campus than there has been the last few years. Every night there is one or more organizations having a meeting and that means burning that well known midnight oil in order to have our assignments for class the next day. In our class election, Naomi Emerson was elected secretary-treasurer of the sophomore class and D. J. Hartman and Dorothy King were elected to the Student Council from the freshman and junior' class, respectively. On October 26, we are g1vmg a costume dance with our brother fraternity, the Phi Lambda Chi's

(seventy-eight members and pledges give us a lot of support), so we're all thinking of costumes to wear. There shouldn't be too much trouble getting the gym decorated with approximately one hundred of us working. Another thing we've started thinking about and planning for is our Stunt Night and Homecoming. This is the first year for all of us to have a Homecoming fl.oat to worry about since this is the first year we've had a football team since '41. The Alpha Sigma fl.oat won first prize in the last contest, so I hope we will be able to live up to that . Our W.A.A. has started its play nights and we've been going over and "getting in shape" for volley ball and basketball. It won't be long before the roundrobins will start. Love, DoROTHY KING

BETA DELTA Mississippi Southern College, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

H'lo There, School opening and roll call found us with twenty路 members and two pledges, all ready for a new school year. Our first meeting was held in the home of Billie Jean Myers, president. It was wonderful to hear about our National Convention from Billie Jean and Marie Scanlan, Beta Delta's official delegates. Their glowing report made us all wish that we had been there. We have a new adviser. She is Miss Mary Tom Colonnes of Selma, North Carolina. Miss Colonnes is the new speech teacher at Mississippi Southern. She received her Master's degree from the University of North Carolina. Miss Colonnes is a lovely person and we wish that you could know her too. Miss Leek, who formerly held this position is now teaching in Florida. We miss her very much and wish her success and happiness. Our second meeting comes under the heading of FUN. It consisted of dinner downtown and a movie afterward . Miss Colonnes and Mrs. Eva Carter were our guests of honor. One of our 1946 graduates has visited us. She is Mrs. Jinny Faye Sushinski, formerly Jinny Faye Wiltshire. She is now residing in Coatsville, Pennsylvania, and we wish that she could have stayed longer. . We have many plans and great hope for the new year and we expect it to be the best yet for A.S.A. ]ANE OsBORN

Dearest Alpha Sigs, It certainly is good to be back on campus to see all the old friends and many new ones, and chat about the experiences of the summer. The campus is really crowded. The fellows live in barracks and housetrailers and even the gymnasium. It makes it quite interesting to have a ratio of men 2 to r. Everyone of us is sorry we couldn't go the the convention after seeing pictures and hearing about the things you did. Here's hoping more of us can go next year. We are all busy planning for homecoming. It took everyone's ideas and plenty of discussion to decide on a float for the big parade.

Dear Alpha Sigs, It is grand to be back with all of you in the PHOENIX. As we of Beta Iota return to campus activities and answer the school bell chimes, we realize that our summer vacations are over. In reminiscent mood we recall our adventures. Beta Iota was well represented in many of the leading cities of the United States this summer. Our president, Ruth Ann Godbey, attended the Alpha Convention, returning to relate to us the interesting news from each chapter. Mayme Katherine McCoy and Alma Rector visited in Washington, D . C., where Penny Mellott spent the summer. One of the most interesting trips taken was by Sibyl Woodford who toured Niagara Falls, much of New York, Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Chicago. In Indianapolis we find Mozelle Porter visiting her sister. She also had a lengthy conversation with Mrs. Leib, National Editor. Our sponsor, Mrs. Einstein enjoyed the Great Smokies and New York. Other places visited were Cincinnati, by Billie Cress; Virginia Beach, by Norma Jean 路Perry and Amy Oakes; Williamsburg, by Dot Carter, and Kingsport, by Jewell Lucas. Marie Williams traveled in Delaware, Maryland, and visited Ocean City and Eastern Shore, Virginia. Marian Dorman spent a month on the York River, and Alma Rector three weeks on the Rapahannock . Frieda Price went to T ennessee but decided she prefers Virginia. On the other hand, there are some industrious A.S.A .'s here at Radford. Sweetie Poland, Lois Reich, and 1 adane Blevins all worked for the long period of two weeks. (Look terribly worn!) Probably the most industrious, though is Jean Draper who acquired a V. P. I. ring. Sara Stickley and Frieda Simms actually did work.

Dear Alpha Sigs, Another school year to begin for the BK's, the new officers are: president, Norma Robeson; vice president, Jane Schaffenacher; secretary, June Sandell, treasurer, June Anderson; chaplain, Dorthy Tipton; editor, Barbara Mathes; registrar, Marjorie Galloway. The marked success of the year was rushing, with seventeen wonderful pledges as a result. Our first party theme was "Hotel Alpha Sigma," with soft music and entertainment, complete in every detail. The second rush party was given at the Service Center, the gay colors presented the Mexican theme used for a dessert card party. The BK's are very proud to say we're living at our new dwelling on West Adams street this year. Our house represents an old medieval castle with big ASA letters over the door. We're just one big happy family. Cupid wasn't sleeping these last few months because six lovely Alpha Sigs are engaged-Shirley Burkwist to Bernie Duckett, who will be married soon; Carol Johnson is wearing a solitaire from Ed Kraemer; in July, Don Gaston gave Barbara Mathes a diamond . Three BK'S wearing Sigma Tau Gamma pins are: Betty Jean Pogue from Jack Eklof, June Sandell from Lee Gamage, and Sarah Cunningham from Bill "Cutch" McCutchson. Saturday night, September 14, the Alpha Sigs presented a gala event on Western Campus when we sponsored our "Dream Night" dance. The lighting effects of blue and red spotlights helped the illusion of the theme. Music was provided by Bill Wood and his orchestra. The efforts and success of the event must be attributed to chairman Mildred Koch, Barb Mathes, Phyl Swanson and Marie Carlson. Our present project is Homecoming. House decorations, a candidate for Homecoming queen, and the Alpha Sigma float are ready to take first place in the Homecoming parade. We're anxrously awaiting the occasion for we expect many alumnae to be back.

Dear Alpha Sigs, We know everyone of you had a grand summer vacation, but isn't it a. wonderful feeling to be back in school, buzzing with activity? Truly, we Alpha Sigs have been busy as bees, registering, getting acquainted, entering into social activities and rushing! First, we took our rushees to a Catholic Bazaar, where everyone was fed all she could eat. Afterwards we all went to the fair. Thursday night we had a party at the home of Mrs. Sam Fausett, one of our wonderful patronesses. Everyone enjoyed eating, talking about campus activities, and playing cards. The evening proved to be a perfect one. Since this semester began we have enjoyed having several of our alumnae visit us, including Dot Wilkerson, Betty Jo Olson, Emmadell Mitchell, Glenna Jo Phillips, Peggy Hime; Anna Jane Taylor, Martha Goode, and Lavonne Cowan. We're always glad to have our alumnae back. We had the privilege of having our own President, Dot Hall, who has recently been elected to the student council, nominated for Scroll queen. Hazel .Everett popped up with an appointment to the YWCA cabinet. Helen Bess Ross was elected treasurer of Sigma Beta Lambda, national honorary home economics club. Her roommate Mary Jea_n Larson, was pledged to Alpha Chi, national honorary scholastic society. Almeda Cox was 'elected publicity manager for the Women's Athletic Association. Wilma Adams distinguished herself by bemg elected governor of the Women's Residence Hall Council, over all dormitories for women. And speaking of writing-our Echo Staff this year is certainly full of Alpha Sigs. Gladia Garrison was named business manager, Dot Hall is Society editor, Almeda Cox is sports editor, Eva Brown is a columnist and Winky Roundtree is circulation manager as well as a~sistant business manager. With cold weather just around the corner our thoughts turn to football. Betty Swaim was elected major over all the majorettes. Also Joanne Mills, transfer from HSTC and Posie Cook were elected cheer leaders. It's really a pleasure to have Joanne Mills join our group of Alpha Sigs. She's already making a name for herself and she's been selected for a major part in the first play given this year by the dramatic club. Now back to the present, and our formal rush party which is only ~hree days off. We're making big plans for a very impressive party. I would like to tell you who our new pledges will be, but of .course, I'm in the dark too, so will have to wait until our next letter. So until thenLots of love 111 ASA, PosiE CooK

Dear Alpha Sigs, This comes winging your way from one of A.S.A.'s brand new baby chapters. Needless to say all of us down here are just bubbling over with joy because we are really ap.d ,truly in Alpha Sigma Alpha. We are realizing more and more every day that we are really in something big. I wish I had the time and space to tell you about all the grand girls in Beta Mu Chapter, but I don't. I would like for you to meet Joy Wilson, our president, though. She's little and cute and blonde with a personality plus and what's more she's engaged! Joy doesn't look at all like the executive type, but she can get more work out of us, and make us like it, than can all the instructors put together. Our most valuable member is Miss Beulah Thompson, our faculty adviser and head of the home economics department. Her hair is the most beautifui snow-white you've ever seen, and she always looks as if she had just stepped out of the proverbial band-box. She is one of the sweetest and most helpful persons on earth, and we thank our lucky stars every day that she's our sponsor. Our rush season ends this week and did we ever have fun! In fact, the members got a bigger kick out of it than the rushees did. First of all our five patronesses each gave a rush party for us one night. In this way all our rushees were at an Alpha Sig party at the same time without our violating our Pan Hellenic rules that limit the number of rushees at a party. Two of the patronesses gave dinner parties, one gave a picnic, another a Mexican supper, and another a bridge party. The parties had one thing in common though-plenty of good food! Our big, official rush party was a bang-up affair in more ways than one. It was held at Magnolia Manor, the country home of Mrs. McElhannon, one of our patronesses. The "wild and woolly west" was chosen as our theme and everyone came dressed in her best Sunday-go-to-meetin' jeans and plaid shirt. First on the program was a tour of the house, built in 1855路 It's really quite a showplace, but what caught most of the girls' fancy were the two balconies from which we could watch the moonlight playing on the magnolia branches. Before everyone got into too much of a romantic mood, however, they were "herded" into the back yard . Here hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad, cherry cider and doughnuts were served from one of the cutest "chuck" wagons you've ever seen. Old kerosene lanterns provided light and atmosphere at the same time. From the grape arbor a record player "gave out" with old western tunes as well as the latest numbers on your hit parade. After supper we sat around the campfire and laughed and talked and sang. Just before the evening was over, cowboy boots made of pottery and decorated with A .S.A. in Greek letters were given to each member and rushee. LoRRAINE LARSEN

BETA NU State Teachers College Murray, Kentucky

Dear Alpha Sigs, First of all-it's really wonderful to be wntmg "dear Alpha Sigs"-and to know that now we belong! Of course, we're all "pleased as punch" and simply "thrilled to pieces" to be starting our first year as fullfledged members. . We hope to make this a great year for Beta Nu and certainly conditions on the campus are going to help. At last we're seeing what college life is really like-we have a record enrollment of fifteen hundred! New faces, new teachers and courses, vet's village, trailer camps, and the long absent but much missed item, MEN, now abound on the campus. Beta N u is still excited over the account of the wonder-ful time our president, Sue Phillips, had at Estes Park. Although she said, "Words can't express it," we understood enough to be "sold on the idea" and

to wish that each and every one of us could go sometime. Sue brought back scads of cute ideas for us to think about and we're already thinking hard! Especially are we making plans for Alpha Sigma's float in our homecoming parade in November. Along with Sigma Sigma Sigma, we decided not to rush this quarter but to wait until the winter quarter and then do a "bang-up job." Right now, big plans are in the making for a sorority Hallowe'en dance at the Murray Clubhouse. Sounds like fun with witches and spooks, and such! Since last spring, wedding bells have rung for two of our group, Mary Anna Huie and Helen Adams. We've also elected a new chaplain, Bonnie Lee Kingins, to fill the vacancy of Betty Jane Jones, who didn't come back to school. Still thrilled with being Alpha Sigs, we'll say "bye for now."
