Winner of the Wilma Wilson Sharp Award for 1947-Mrs. J. J. Wimp

I

SARAH GRIM WIMP

Alpha Beta is proud and happy to present their Wilma Wilson Sharp Award winner, Sarah Grim Wimp. Through her college days Sarah reflected glory on Alpha Beta Chapter by being queen of her class, a member of the Year Book staff, belonging to the Drama Club, and a member of Kappa Delta Pi . She served as President of Alpha Beta Chapter, and in that capacity attended the Chicago Convention . After college and marriage Sarah took nurses' training at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, while her husband studied medicine there . Following both of their graduations, the family , now including daughter Jan , returned to Kirksville, where Dr . Wimp began his practice . In the years since, Sarah has found time and energy to devote to many outside activities while ma intain ing a lovely home for her husband and four children-Jan, Jett, Jill , Joy . In past years Mrs. Wimp has served as Regent of Ann Hayes Chapter of the D.A.R .,

President of Sojourner's Club for two years, a member of the Salvation Army Board in her husband's absence during the war, a member of the Girl Scout Council, and leader of a Brownie Troop. She also organized the Newcomer's Club and was its first chairman. In the war years, the acute shortage of nurses, prompted Sarah to devote many hours to nursing in a Kirksville hospital. At present Sarah Wimp is President of the Kirksville Board of Education, of which she has been a member for the past six years; President of the Benton School P.T.A.; District President of the Presbyterial; Secretary of the Nor.theast Missouri Civic Music Association; and a member of the Federal Jury Panel for District two at Hannibal. Sarah is as pretty as she is capable, and this, with her poise and graciousness, reflects much credit on Alpha Sigma Alpha in each of her many pursuits. Alpha Beta's are indeed proud for Alpha's everywhere to know her.

Winner of the Elizabeth Bird Small Award for 1947- Laura Virginia Foltz

LAURA VIRGINIA FOLTZ

To achieve the highest development physically, spiritually, mentally, and socially-this is our aim in Alpha Sigma Alpha . Laura Virginia typifies the accomplishment of our sorority's ideals in every way . Laura has been an active member of the YWCA since her Freshman year at Madison . He路r efforts as its President this past year have done much to promote a deeper religious feeling on the campus through outstanding chapel services. She freely donates her talent to The Lutheran Church of Harrisonburg-teaching a Sunday School class, singing in the choir, and also directing the primary childrens' choir. She truly gives full measure . The "School ma'am," the college annual, also claimed her obi Iities. She has been a steadfast worker, and editor of the feature section for three of her college years. All who meet Ginny are sure to remember her gracious manner which immediately puts one at ease . Her enthusiastic welcome .has

helped many a lonely freshman to become oriented to college life, and to feel really a part of it. Yes, our resourceful Laura is always able to meet every situation whether it be getting ready for an Alpha Sigma dance, participating in a class discussion or presiding at an important YWCA meeting . Her cheery smile and friendly manner have made her a campus favorite. Ginny is an accompl ished musician, and an enthusiastic concert mistress of the college orchestra . She also plays the piano for the Rotary Club. Always an enthusiastic Alpha Sig, Laura, has already attended an alumnae meeting in Harrisonburg , and just can't wait to participate in their activities. We are proud to honor her as the girl who has achieved the h ighest honors on her campus and earned a place in t he Alpha Sigma Alpha hall of fame as our all-around girl , the culmination of our idealswinner of coveted Elizabeth Bird Small Award .

EDITORIAL THIS ABOVE ALL The fall of the year when all activities in college ar.~d elsewhere are starting with renewed vigor 路 is just the season to recall the advice of your high school friend, Polonius. Remember those famous lines you learned;:> The "few precepts" which Polonius gave to Laertes are each one ageless and priceless but, as he said, the last is the best-"This above all : to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man ." The basic purpose of national fraternity membership is the development of the individual, through the ideals and teachings of the fraternity and by the enlarging of friendships. Therefore,路 fraternity membership, particularly in college, emphasizes natural and expedient ways whereby its members may make the most of their individual capabilities and opportunities. In final analysis, the choice of ways and means rests with the individual. In a sense, her accomplishments proclaim her ~aithfulness to her own standards of growth. This issue of the Phoenix has a special section which proudly records some achievements of Alpha Sigma Alpha college members . Our congratulations to them are no less sincere than our belief in their future attainments. Our pleasure in them extends to all of you in Alpha Sigma Alpha who at this appropriate time by your self-determination steadfastly follow the course which is consistent with your OWQ self-growth.

THE WORLD IS MY COUNTRY The celebration of Alpha Sigma Alpha's Founders' Day on November fifteenth will reflect the maturity of the forty-six year old fraternity and of its members. An impressive program prepared by Harriett B. Johnson, Founders' Day Chairman路, has for its subject, Worldmanship. The following sentences ore taken from the introduction . "Forty-six years ago at State Normal School for girls in Farm-

PAGE ville, Virginia, there were five girls who were neighbors-but more than that they had the same high ideas and ideals which makes for mutual understanding and love. On thei_r un derstanding and love they founded Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority to further their high concept of womanhood . Today, we honor those five women, our Founders, who had the foresight to share with others the love on which our sorority is based. Our Founders have achieved their goal of seeing Alpha Sigma Alpha grow until its chapters spread from coast to coast . We, the present members of ASA have the challenge of an even greater goal to face in the years ahead-to help in the great task of bringing about understanding and love to the peoples of all the world, that the rJeace for which men have fought and died may be universal and endure through the ages." The Founders' Day Program will furnish the ASA Devotional theme for the 1947-48 college year. Worldmanship will be the central subject around which College Chapter Chaplains will plan brief but effective devotional exercises .

TRIBUTE TO MABEL LEE WALTON A strong personality is to be felt not described . True appreciation however inadequately expressed in words is held fast in the heart of friends . In a brief message telegraphed to the Sigma Sigma Sigma National Convention this past summer, Alpha Sigma Alpha paid tribute to Mabel Lee Walton upon her retirement from the presidency of Tri Sigma. A portion of the telegram in which all Alpha Sigma Alphas will be interested is quoted : "The National Officers of Alpha Sigma Alpha congratulate "you upon Mabel Lee's exceptional leadership and her recognition by entire fraternity world . We confidently wish you great success and happiness knowing the vision and teaching of Mabel Lee will forever be an impelling incentive and an unfailing guide to Sigma Sigma Sigma ."

Two National Chairmen Appointed EMMA FROST

Emma Coleman Frost

When Alpha Sigmas from all over U. S. started to the New York World's Fair in 1939, they discovered that there was a welcome sign out for them in a home not far from Flushing Meadow. From that time on every ASA who came into New York even for a short time, phoned the owner and op~rator of the Park School of Cookery for a visit, or friendly advice. To people from all chapters, "Em" Frost was their tried and true friend! Her cordial, friendly spirit did much to drive away those "homesick blues" that tended to bother newcomers to the " Big City-" No wonder Em Frost is so well known to Alpha Sigma Alphas of all ages and colleges! Then it is little wonder that Em seems to be 'an ideal choice as one of the Chairmen for our new Alumnae Secretary work . As the plans go forward to inaugurate this program it appears that Em, with the aid of Chapter Alum-

nae Secretaries and Class Representatives, will work to bring our Alumnae records up-todate and keep them that way . We want our alumnae to keep pace with our sorority and its rapidly expanding alumnae program. Our goal is to make every ASA an active and enthusiastic alumna who is doing her share to make our sorority's influence felt in the fraternity world. Em's national spirit and enthusiasm should spur on this work to reach its goal. "Phoenix" readers will recall that our 1945 Wilma Wilson Sharp Alumna Award winner was Em Frost. Em's selection for this top alumnae honor in our sorority could be Gttributed to her service to ASA, her profession and her community. Her service as College Chapter President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and President of the New York Alumna Ch_apter are evidence of her long standing interest in ASA and its welfare. A graduate of the Home Economics Department of the New York College for Teachers at Buffalo and Columbia, University, Em has applied h~r training to teaching, work as a dietitian, supervisor of Home Economic problems, and guest lecturer . Her supper parties for Officers quartered in New York during War years meant much to the Army, Navy and Marine personnel. The cooperation of each and every ASA alumna together with Em's enthusiasm and devotion for her ASA responsibilities, guarantee the success of this new undertaking.

NOVEMBER, 1947

ETHEL BARRETT Many Alpha Sigma readers may not recognize on~ of our new Chairmen by her nome but if we soy this personality is better known to ASA's as "Billie" then on introduction is not necessary. After all, the regular "Phoenix" correspondent of the New York Alumnae Chapter for several years was Billie Barrett and her interesting stories made everyone feel they were actually in New York-meeting new members and participating in the many programs of that splendid chapter. However, to her new National office Billie brings an enviable service record in ASA, her profession and her community.

'\

A native of Philadelphia "Billie" continued her education at Temple University where she was initiated into Kappa Kappa Chapter. As President of the Pledge Chapter she started up the AS~} ladder serving as Chapter Editor and Panhellenic representative. Her services were not only limited to the sorority for Billie was Vice-President of the Business Education Department and Department Representative to the Secondary Education Board. When she graduated from Temple with a degree in Business Education she started teaching in Jersey: It was then that Philly's loss was New York's gain for Billie joined the New York Alumnae Chapter. Aside from being a loyal member she has served as President, Vice-President, "Phoenix" Correspondent and was returned to the Presidency for this coming' year. No service is too great for Billie where ASA is concerned and to her new office she brings enthusiasm, loyalty and willingness to carry through all tasks assigned to her. Lest anyone should think ASA is Billie's one and only interest, let us tell you a bit about her other activities. After ~eceiving her Master's degree in Student Personnel Adl1'"1inistration from Columbia, a new .avenue of service opened to Billie. Starting off as an Assistant Counselor she so convinced her school of the need for a regular guidance de-

13 partment, that she was permitted to set up and administer a guidance center for the school and community . In addition to the regular guidance program for the school she operates a Junior Placement Service for students, grad-

Ethel E. Barrett

uotes and for any young people of the community. She has made two supplementary organizations of her bureau vital to commu.n ity welfare, namely the Veterans Guidance Bureau and a Baby-Sitters Agency. Is it any wonder that the students have such a high regard for their guidance director? If you should read some of Billie's summer experiences you might think it is a listing in an occupational dictionary. Some of these are: telephone operator, public secretary, adyertising copy writer, radio publicity director for the Philadelphia summer symphony and script writer for ten radio stations. Billie can certainly tell many interesting tales about celebrities she has met in her various positions. We know that Alpha Sigmas will greet the news of Billie's appointment with cheers for she will use her talents to "advance the interests of our Alumnae Department."

Rho Chi Chapter Installed at Wayne University, Detroit, Michigan army barracks and in former residential dwellings, but how many assemble in the choir loft of a neighboring church or in the former studio of a broadcasting station on the fifteenth floor of an office building. Those are only two of the places where the professors call the roll.

Main Entrance, Wayne Univers ity

Although the sidewalk campus of Wayne University may not seem too impressive to outsiders, it has gained the loyalty of many thousands of students puring the past few years . The University is still a baby in age, but it has grown to the proportions of a giant in size . Present enrollment is over fifteen thousand . The University as such has existed since 1933 at which time several existing colleges were joined together under one authority . The Detroit Medical College, founded in 1868, the Detroit Teacher's College, and the City Col lege of Detroit were the original members of the University . The University has been expanded to eleven special colleges . It is the only organization of its type to be under the direct control of a city board of education chosen by a direct vote of the people. The University is supported by both the school district of the City of Detroit and of Wayne County . Expansion shows all over the University. Temporary buildings have sprouted up on every vacant spot, while two new buildings are under construction . These are the first buildings to be erected especially for Univers ity use . Variety is offered in classrooms . Students at other universities may attend classes in ex-

HISTORY OF RHO CHI CHAPTER

Growth is the fashion at Wayne and it is fitting that Sigma Rho Chi Sorority should grow too. That is why the members decided to heed the little birdie which was whispering in their ears about the wonderful national sorority, Alpha Sigma Alpha . Last March, an application was filed with Mrs. Sharp in the National Office . Plans were quickly completed for the pledging ceremonies at the Whittier Hotel on Ju r.~e eighth . That pledging service marked the fourth time that the one group has changed its name . The organization began in 1922 as the Rural Club whose main purpose was to sponsor outdoor activities and sportsmanship among rural teachers, both men and women. This club was


NOVEMBER, 1947 one of the most active and the largest at the old Teacher's College . When the Teacher's College was joined to the City College of Detroit, the club admitted members from that college . SiQce the interests of the new members differed from those of the original members, the name was changed to the Rho Chi Club in 1932. While the club was a professional group, it received a small allotment from the College activity fund. When it began to operate after sorority rules, the financial aid was stopped . At the time of the incorporation of the Wayne University the Rho Chi Club was dissolved and a charter was drawn for Sigma Rho Chi Sorority. It was the first sorority to be chartered under Wayne University. The Chapter Alumnae organ rzation was founded in 1935.

15 ler Hotel rooms of Miss Evelyn Bell of Buffalo, National Alumnae Director, Miss Virginia Carpenter of Cleveland, National Vice-President, and Miss Joan Steinmiller of Buffalo, the National College Editor. On Sunday, the girls of the active chapter and two alumnae chapters assembled at Dearborn Inn for the ceremonies. Miss Bell and Miss Carpenter presided . They were assisted by Sue Marvin and Ann Stark of Pi Pi Chapter of Buffalo and Francis Huszarik and Verna Gilbert of Beta Theta Chapter of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan . Mary McKay of Beta Epsilon provided the background music .

THE CEREMONIES

Dinner at Dearborn Inn .

Sigma Rho Chi Officers and Installing Team .

The pledging ceremony last spring was combined with the Founders' Day services of Sigma Rho Chi . That affair was traditionally a formal dinner.at which the undergraduates and alums recalled the past and hoped for the future . It seemed so appropriate and so beautiful to join Alpha Sigma Alpha at that time when the girls were feeling their unity so strongly. Our pledge pins were worn throughout the summer while plans ' were made for formal initiation and chapter installation on September fourteenth . Beautiful Dearborn Inn was the scene for the lovely ceremonies, a perfect background for the girls dressed in white. Since Wayne University is strictly a city college, it was not possible to follow the usual weekend program for installation. Officer's conferences were Saturday evening at the Stat-

Toward evening the AlphQ Sigma Alpha girls sat down to dinner. Jacqueline Joly, president of the Rho Chi Chapter, was toastmistress for the program which followed. Guests were presented by Mary E. Anuskavitz, past president of Rho Chi . Mary McKay played two piano selections before the toasts which were as follows: Aspire by Mrs . Ambrosia Ford of the Detroit Alumnae, Seek by Marion Tate of the Sigma Rho Chi Alumnae, and Attain by Miss Evelyn Bell . Preceeding the closing Hymn to Alpha Sigma Alpha路, Kay Helliar and Lyla Mathiak of Rho Chi sang Alpha Sigma Sweetheart. Perhaps a note of explanation 路would be in order .. There are two alumnae chapters in Detroit now . One is the previously established Detroit Alumnae Chapter and the other is the Rho Chi Alumnae Chapter which includes the graduates of Wayne University路. I don't have to tell you readers what our reactions were to the ceremon ies . Every Alpha Sig must feel that wonderful glow that seems to,grow out of one until it touches the girl next to you, It's marvelous!

CONCORD COLLEGE-PAST AND PRESENT Concord State Normal School located at Concord Church, now called Athens, Mercer County, West Virginia, was estab lished by on oct of the Legislature February 28, 1872. At this time , the village of Concord Church consisted of five families . The building , which was built by the community, was a small wooden structure, located on land donated to the state by a family of Martins. The building wa s erected on the site of the present day Training Schoo l building . The sch oo l was ope ned May 10, 1875, with Captain James Harvey French as principal and Ha n. William Reyn olds, assistant, and

continued for twenty weeks. Seventy students we~e enrolled at this session. The Legislature of 1885 appropriated five thousand dollars for a new building and three years later a further appropriation of three thousand dollars was mode . The school was continued in the building erected with these funds until February 1899 . The Legislature of 1897 mode on appropriation fo r a new building and this was used until it was destroyed by fire in November 1910 . The Legislature of 1911 appropriated funds to erect the building now occupied by the school as the Administration Building . Two years later the auditorium and laborato ry were added .


NOVEMBER, 1947 Concord State Normal School was later made into a standard four -year State Teachers College with full power to confer the Bachelor's Degree with Teaching Fields . The first Bachelor's Degree was conferred by Concord State Teachers College in June 1923 . The Women 's Dormitory, now known as the " old hall, " was built and ready for occupancy April 2, 1922. The "new hall" was completed March 27, 1937 . The Men's Hall , John Baker White Hall, was ready for occupancy in 1939 . During these years the new and modern Swimming Pool was constructed . During the war years 1943-1944 the college served as a training center for Arniy Air Corp Cadets. The last contingent left Concord's campus June 30, 1944 . In 1943 Concord State Teachers College was changed to Concord College with additional power and authority to grant the straight Bachelors degree in Art or Science without Teaching Fields. There are only two state supported schools which are not exclusive Teach~rs Colleges. They ore Marshall College , Huntington, and Concord .

NOVEMBER, 1947

ANNUAL ALPHA ALPHA AWARD AT MIAMI UNIVERSITY During the last student assembly in May, 1947, when other student honors were presented, Eileen Magie was recognized as the most outstanding Freshman girl in the School of Education , Miami University, Oxford, Ohio.

21 As you can easily see Eileen was a busy person in High School and during her first year in Miami University. Her scholarship average for the year was 3 .63 which is excellent. The old saying that "when you really want a good chairman ask a busy person" is certainly true in Eileen's life. We will follow Eileen through Miami and we can expect her to be a leader in campus activities as well as retaining a high scholarship average . This is the ninth annual fifteen dollar cash award given by Alpha Alpha of Alpha Sigma Alpha and is truly a fine concrete way of keeping the Sorority's name on the student Honor Iist.

CHAPTER EFFICIENCY RATING FOR 1946- 1947 Per Cent

NEWS LETTERSAlumnae Chapters

AKRON, OHIO Dear Alpha Sigs: When Akron's Alumnae Chapter of Alpha Sigma AI. pha held its September meeting, the rooms buzzed with greetings and bits of summer news. A corn roa st planned for members and their families in August was cancelled because Akron's polio epidemic was then at its heighth, so most of us had not seen each other si nce the June meeting . Lo ui se Holt and Dorothy Scott took summer work at Akron Univers ity and Ohio State, respectively. Peggy Sands t old of a most interest ing trip t o Yellowstone National Park, and Beth W ashko recounted an enjoyable trip to Canada. Three of our members, Beth Washko, Louise Holt, and Given Spiers recently attended a Junior League Provis ional Course and Loui se made a report on the course. We are continuing o ur project with the Summit Count y Children's Home . Every child receives a birthday card with a dime enclosed . Our members ta ~e turns addressing and mailing these cards. Our prog ram committee gave us beautiful program booklets, on the front page of which was the following poem by one of our members. ODE TO ASA ALUMNAE Girls of Akron ASA we be, Either moth ers or teachers all are we. At our meetings we have such fun, We "air our problems with everyone. It's, " How did you ever get Johnny to eat? Did you threaten or coax or spank hi s little seat? " Or, "I n school , how do you make work see m like play? " "What did you do at you r last P. T. A.?" Yes, we " gab," but that's not all we doWe think of all kinds of ways That so me money we can rai se To give a lift here and give one there, To take on a project and problems we share . We make ou rse lves useful by doing so me good, By helping along others as everyone should . Helen Snyde r Yours since rely, Doroth y H. Scott

ALVA, OKLAHOMA Dear Alumnae: Since this is to be a news lette r, I su ppose that vacation trips and residence changes should come first. The real "trippers" of Gamma Gamma were Edna Do nl ey, Pauline Haworth and Alma Lois Rodgers. These fair ladies t ook an auto trip to and along the " Atlantic Coast Line"-that is they started from Alva , driving in

Edna 's car, and visited in Nebraska , Illinoi s, Massachusetts, New York and Virginia . The most outstanding events were the national conve ntion of Delta Kappa Gamma and "sitting in" on one session of U. N. at Lake Success. As ASA's, th e ir greatest joy was dining with â&#x20AC;˘ Em Frost in New York City. Really their report of Em and her husband thrilled every one at our Alumnae meeting in September. Racine Spicer attended the international convention of A. A. U. W. a s a representative of the Murray, Kentucky Branch , in Ottawa , Canada . She reports a most interesting meeting as well as a pleasant trip. By the way-Racine is now teaching in the Kansa s Wesleyan University in Salina , Kansas. She felt it wise to get nearer to her mother, who is not in perfect health. Both she and Alma Lois Rodgers are members of Wesleyan faculties . Alma lois is in Lincoln , Nebraska. Northwestern State College, Alva , is celebrating its Fiftieth Anniversary this year. October 24 is HomeComing Day. At that time Oklahoma . Northwestern Education Association is meeting in Alva . A special committee is preparing to make the 24th an ideal day. Every alumni of the college¡ is invited to participate in the parade and the ceremonies of this occasion. Locall y, the college chapter has just gone through a hectic rushing season. The girls were very successful and pinned ribbons on nine very fine young ladies. Queer, but true , nine was the number each of the four sororities on the campus pledged. Our enrollment of girls is very much Iess-in proportion, to the boys. - The college is full of G. I.'s . That is much to the delight of the feminine students . Minnie Shockley

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS Hear ye! Hear y~! Hear ye! From the land of the bean and the cod! Summer's over and all 's well! Edith Howlett spent the summer getting healthy through swimming, hiking, mountain climbing and boating in Maine and New Hampshire . Gertrude Calvert journeyed to Ohio with her husband and three sons. Mabie B. Peterson was wonderfully lazy all summer with time spent at Kennebunkport, Maine, Cape Cod and Northfield. Ruth Fletcher so journed in Fitzwilliam , N. H., for three weeks with her family consisting of one husband and two daughters. Ruth Scallon achieved her Maste r of Education with Dr. Durrell at Boston University, School of Education . Dorothy Currier, our new alumnae pres ident, was in Maine the gr~ater part of the summer. Ruth Mayo, our past alumnae president, made oodles of money having charge of her camps on Cape Cod. Evelyn Christianse n did nothing amu si ng except enjoy her daughter and young son, Robert. Mary Nevi lle was presented with twins the last of August. All three are doing nicel y, thank you.


NOVEMBER, 1947 Bernice Galloway took a Red Cross course on Textile Painting which she will use later in her teaching at the Chelsea Naval Hospital. Laura McQuide received her Master of Arts degree from Boston University. Betty Hull Fox is the proud mother of a baby girl. Marie Poland lived in a tent by a lake on Cape Cod near a Y.M .C.A. camp with one small son while the rest of the family were real "honest-to-goodness" campers. All is well! All is well! Marie Poland, Town Crier

BUFFALO, NEW YORK Greetings! Looking forward to Alpha Sig activities is certainly a compensation for the end of a summer vacation . Don't you agree? And before we tell our current news, we'd like to take you back to our lovely June luncheon . Our brides of the year were honored with dainty crepe-paper corsages which showed much time and effort on the part of Reva Kahn and her committee . The graduates, too, as special guests found their college years symbolized by clever mortar boards fashioned out of paper. Our future alumnae were welcomed formally by our President, Kay Strickland, as Joan Steinmiller took some lovely pictures of the group. It was a joy to greet the incoming group, and particularly to present the Alumnae award for scholarship to Marion Mandley whose average for the accelerated course of three years was 3. 72. ' Those of us who wander back to the campus during the year, knew that Jean Whiting was well-deserving of the Activity award for outstanding contributions to the college and sorority. The first director's meeting at Reva's sounded like a well-rounded travelogue. We found that Connie Batt, Reva, and路 Marg Rosche had been ' north of the border" relaxing at some of the Canadian lake resorts, while Flossie Hamlin had been "tenting" on the shores of Lake 路 Ontario. With her two young babies along, we agreed that she was most energetic. Melvina Holzman told us about her New York City sojourn, crowded with plays and dinners at lovely places, and President ".Kay" mentioned a trip to Maryland . Her unusual return trip, however, made us most envious. It was a test flight of a C-82 or "Flying-Box-Car," and. they made a special stop in Syracuse just for her! Phyl Tatu's vacation topped all mileage records with a sightseeing trip to California. We heard her comparing notes with past "conventioners" and they seemed to have found many of the same wonderful sights. After a visit on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, a wonderful evening with Ruby Fitch Nelson and family in Westfield, New Jersey, and a few days in New York City, high-lighted by the "Starlight Roof," I settled down in the College Co-op. It was a popular place to be when people like Ev Bell and Jean Vedder were daily visitors. They had their arms loaded down with books and were really "gunning." After "exams," Ev left far a grand visit with her family in Maryland. Marg Braun calmly reported that she and her family spent an evening at Marg Robertson's cottage in Canada . .. but, then added, that it was so pleasant, they stayed all week! None of us could compete with that, so we started to makes plans for the coming year. As the reports were given, Courtesy Chairman Connie drew a deep breath and asked far a secretary . . . One peek at the statistics in the back and you will understand . Our very best wishes and congratulations to all of them!

25 Our "gala first 7 night" with the entire group was spent at Hildegarde Kai ser's lovely home . After a delicious chop suey supper arranged by Clair Crocker Holland, thirty of us gathered in the living room to get acquainted with our 1947 members. After committee reports, our Co-sisters, Barbara LaVigne and Charlotte Miller were busy making notes to carry back to the active chapter. We were especially pleased to find two under-graduates, Ginny Heinold, and Fannier Erdell in our midst. They gave a glowing picture of tfi e off-campus formal dance held recently at Kleinhans Music Hall, and ~xtended invitations to their "Shipwreck" rush party and formal tea at the Park Lane. The rumors about "courtesy shopping" from Marg Braun's committee had us in suspense until we found out at a special meeting that Sears and Roebuck Company has .given us an opportunity to earn $1 00 by our volunteer services as " shoppers." They are quite specific in qualifying the merchandise to be "shopped ." For example, wouldn't you like to be near by when Jeanie Steinmiller starts looking for long-sleeved, high neck, long-legged ladies' woolen underwear? I'll tell you the results when I write again . Until then, Buffalo alums wish you all a most pleasant and successful year. Love in ASA, Marjorie F. Suggs

CANTON, OH 10. Dear Alpha Sigs : Our first meeting of the year turned out to be more of a social gathering than a business meeting. Unfortunately our president, Janice Marsh, could not be with us. The evening was spent reminiscing and enjoying the delightful luncheon prepared by our hostess June Reigle DeHinden, (Delta Delta) of Massillon. Our chapter is small and our combined activities are not too great. However, individually our members are interested in various projects . . Three of the mare important ones are three .new babies, only one of whom will be a future Alpha Sig. Dorothy Stough Roth, 00, had a baby girl , Phyllis Jean, November 30, 1 946 . Betty Little Harner, KK , and Dr. Ron adopted a baby boy, Ronald James in March, 1947. He was a year old August 14. Mary Donze Miller, 00, had a boy, Dennis Leonard, on June 7 , 1947. Margie Schlott Crawford, 00, was president of Plain Center School P.T .A. for the past two years. Their annual carnival was held last month and Margie and Mary Miller were very active IT)embers of the committee that made the carnival a financial success. Margie and Dottie Oeffinger are Program Chairmen for the year, and while they have not divulged the year's program, we know they have something fine in store for us. Dottie Bausher Oeffinger has had a busy summer and foil attending auctions and antique sales. Our president, Janice Rate Marsh, 00, is Brownie leader for Troop 75, Belle Stone School. She is also chairman of the nominating committee for the Town Garden Club. Sue Sanford Campbell , 00, is Vice-President of the P.T.A. at Avondale School. She is making arrangements for us to have a booth at the Christmas Bazaar held in the Avondale School in December. This is sure to be one of the money making projects for ~he year. Sue also has charge of the Readers Digest subscriptions. The money we received from the Digest last year helped our budget considerably. . Kay Faulk Giltz, 00, and her family of Massillon, vacationed in the West this summer. They traveled to


THE PHOENIX

26 Gallup, Phoenix, Albuquerque and Denver. While in Gallup they attended the Indian Ceremonials. Kay and June DeHinden were co-chairmen of the Social Committee for Whittier School in Massillon. They put on a benefit to raise money for playground equipment and went over the top. Kay is also Room Mother for the second grade, in Whittier School. Mary Louise Carmello Carfagno, 00, has had an extremely busy summer. In addi.tion to helping her husband, who is a wholesale distributor, Mary Louise has canned 250 jars of fruits and vegetables. We have lost one member. Betty Andrews La Monica, 00, moved to 500 Woodside Rd., Forest Hills, Pittsburgh. We are going to miss her. Emmy Schlott Calhoun, 00, has added laurels to our group by being elected President of Canton Junior Woman's Club . Emmy also was auctioneer for our White El ep hant Sale last year. That turned out to be one of our most lucrative meetings. Betty Little Harner, KK, is a membe路r of the Governing Board of the Woman 's Auxiliary of the Stark County Medical Society. Jane Weible Urban, Upsilon Upsilon, has given up her position as Music Supervisor of Jackson Townshi p Scho0l, and is devoting her time to directing three choirs, and teaching voice . She is a member of the Board of the Avondale School P. T . A. , and also is De n Mother for a Cub scout troop. Our October meeting is to be held at the home of Sue Campbell. We are having our Founders' Day Dinner at Congress Lake Country Club, but more of that in our next news letter. We hope if any Alpha Sigs move into our -vicinity they will contact us. We are anxious to enlarge our chapter and will make them more than weicome. Betty Little Harner \

CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA The first meeting of the year was he ld in the form of a luncheon at the home of Margie Hoover Heisey in Rheems, with Frances Atkins Duffy and Helen Heagy Wenger as assisting hostesses. Eleven Alpha Sigs enjoyed the delicious food, a good visit and made p lans for the year. The next two r;neetings will be held in conjunction with the Temple Home-co ming week-end and the K.K. alumnae dinner with the third get-together at the time of the regional meeting for this section of the country. The spring meeting will be held in York, at the home of Hester Snyder, and will be in honor of graduating college chapter Alpha Sigs who will reside in the Central Pennsy lvania area and be potential members. The Fall meeting for 1948 will be held in the garden of the new home of our president, Eleanor Dobler Brown . Carol E. Williams, of Bethlehem, was a guest ot our luncheon and showed a great deal of interest in trying to revive the Eastern Pennsylvania Alumnae Chapter that di sbanded during the war. We wish her success! Many honors have come to the members of our group-Helen Witmyer received a gold trophy from the State Deportment of the American Legion for the outstanding Child Welfare Report. This trophy was awarded at the State Convention. You will recall the recent article written for the " Phoeni x" by Helen who was a WAVE during the war. Margie Hoover Heisey is vice-president of the Eliza beth Hughes Society which is o small local woman 's club .

Hester Snyder is program chairman for the York College Club for a two year period. June Smith is President of the Lancaster College Club for a two year period and vice-president of the Lancaster Soroptimist Club. Gerald ine Smith is president of the Lancaster Soroptimist Club . Virginia Hoffman was chairman of the Baby Parade for the New Holland Farm Show. In fact this important position kept her away from the luncheon meeting . Mary Wilson Aungst continues her work with the Red Cross in Harrisburg and plans to register in a school of Social Service for exte nsion work this winter. We lost two members of our chapter-Ann Slifer, who has moved路 back home to be with her mother who is in ill health and to teach physical education in Williamsport High School; and Freida Bunting Kasisky, who is teaching in Chesapeake City, Maryland, and feels she路 is too far away to be able to travel to meetings . We shall miss these girls. s. June Smith

CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA Dear Alpha Sigs: Isn't it fun to meet a sorority sister quite suddenly and unexpectedly years and years after you have both left college? That was my most pleasant experience on September 29th, when I entertained the Charleston Alumnae group. It was my first meeting with the new group formed here in the spring . Somehow, something always prevented my meeting with them . In September, I promised that nothing would interfere so I entertained them in my home. The calling committee had been very much at work1 didn't even know some of the girls who planned to be here, and I was really looking forward to the evening. Imagine my surprise to see Edith Grogan Shafer, who was a sister Rho Rho back in the old days when keeping a sorority house was really work-from 1929 to 1933 . There were times, I'm afra id, when the business of the group was a little side-tracked to allow memories the right-of-way. Among other things I learned that Agnes Snyder, who was with us then, has become Head Physic-' Therapist of the E.T.O. When we were in school, Ag;,es worked port-time in the Orthopedic Hospital in Hunting ton. I truly loved seeing "Ed ie" again. Also--please let me brag a little-we had wit h us Mrs. Louise Carper, '.Yhom you know a s one of the Founders, but whom we know os a member of our group. Isn't that something to brag about? . During the summer the very alert program committee had set up a most interesting schedule for the coming yea r. Attractively typed copies were sent to the members, so that we have no excuse for allowing anything to interfere with meet ings. I thought it was clever of them to alternate meeting dates between Wednesdays and Saturdays. Some of our planned meetings are a Hallowe'en luncheon for October, Founders' Day Program (we hope with Rho Rho's from Marshall ) in November, Christmas luncheon with actives home for the holidays, White Elephant sale in January, Valentine luncheon in February-Who sa id it was difficult to provide a varied program? With girls like Annette Gruher and Evelyn and Pauline Haile and Lillian Maynard nothing is impossible. They ore wonderful officers. Will hove more to tell you next time . Eloise Keller


NOVEMBER, 1947

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS The first fall meeting is always the most exciting one of the whole year- catching up with what everyone else has been doing all summer and hearing about new plans for the fall season . Everyone wonts to talk at once --and does. Not many of us hod seen each other since the June meeting at Eleonore Thomas' home in Glenview, when we almost ron a race with the stork, and at that time Jeanne Ramsey volunteered to be the hostess for the September meeting . As usual , Jeanne served a perfectly delicious luncheon-chicken salad with a heavenly dessert. The main topic of conversation was Eleonore Thomas' new son, who was born about a week after her June luncheon . Although the Thomas' already hove two lively young sons, th!!Y were only too glad to welcome Billy. Eleonore's sister, June Smith, come to toke core of Donald and Chuck, not to mention Tommy, Sr., but was called home because of the serious illness of her mother who, we were sorry to hear, passed away a few day~ later. We were all surprised and disappointed by the news that our president-elect, Mary Weinburg, hod decided to give up her office job here in Chicago and go bock to her home town to teach again. We hate to lose Mary as she was one of , our most enthusiastic younger members, but know that she will be happy teaching in the some school with her mother in Augusto, Illinois. Alice Jones, Mary's former roommate in Oak Pork, was unable to be 'present but promised to see us at the October meeting . , By popular demand Jeanne Ramsey was persuaded to toke over the job of president for the coming year, and in spite of her many activities of teaching and running her house, we know we con always count on Jeanne . We 路 now hove enough afghan squares to make our third afghan. We hove already turned in two, we ore proud to announce. We were all glad to hedr that Frances Weegor' s little four-year-old Dickie is recovering nicely from the rheumatic fever which he contracted lost spring . We ore always anxious to welcome any new Alpha Sigs who move into the Chicago area. Dorothy Masters

CLEVELAND, OHIO Although it is a bit on the ancient. history side, the Cleveland Alumnae Chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha would like to get a word in about its election-of-officers meeting which ' wos held April twenty-sixth at Georgia Kurtz's. Georgia and Leota Merion provided us with p sumptuous lllnch which served as inspiration for the afternoon's labor-knitting afghan blocks. Since the knitting progressed so well, we seized the opportunity to elect officers for the coming year. The result was that, in spite of her protests, Ruth Duffy was elected to the Presidency. Georgia Kwrtz will do the honors as Vice-President and Treasurer, Martha Barch will be the new Secretory, and I shall corry on as the "Phoenix" correspondent for onother year. We decided to send Betsy Besse a bothinette for her impending "guppie", and discussed 路 programs for the coming year. Gino Carpenter suggested that, since we hove three veterans' hospitals in the immediate vicinity, the buying of a book projector for one of them, perhaps Crile, might be a goal for our fall and winter activities. On June 7, Jupiter Pluvious come through in fine style to supply a first class deluge, but since we knew lunch

27 would be waiting , we skipped gaily over the puddles to Ruth Duffy's house. Were we surprised to find our long absent chum, Helen Swart, very much present and lending Ruth a hand with the luncheon preparations ! Leta Crawford's enchanting daughter-in- law, Jean, was a special guest, along with Ado Harvey's small Susan . Along with the afghan assembling, your correspondent prodded all for news items and come up with the following-Ruth Voorhees' daughter, Janice, from Kirksville, Missouri, was recently a guest of Bernie DeTchon . Harry and Georgia Kurtz will be attending the Kiwanis convention in Chicago, June 29 to July 3, and 路then will be trekking on to Wisconsin for a vocation . Helen Swart's "little" Jock will arrive June 10 from Faribault Minnesota, where he is attending Shattuck Militor~ School. "Big" Jock Swart is expected home . from Venezuela some time in August. Esther Coote's son Bill and three chums from Case ore hitch hiking to Ada' Ne~odo where they intend to spend the summer worki~g in th~ copper mines. Sounds like wonderful experience for on engineer! Leta Crawford is vastly pleased that she is going to be the first grandmother in the group. Ruth reminded us to save soles tax stomps to help finance our winter activities, and to save July 26 for our annual big summer get-together at the Barch's in Briar Hill. Although July 26 downed fair and bright, there really is no kindness in the weather man, and he let it gloom up and rain by noon, the meonie . The heavy dew quelled most of the enthusiasm for swimming, but Fred and Martha solved the problem of "what to do while it rained" by serving cocktails until the sun shone again . When it did, all twenty-eight of us rushed pell mell out of doors, with Bob DeTchon and Rolph Besse spearheading the attock for the table tennis, and Dick Fry and Jock Greer making a bee line for the badminton court. Everyone hod a fling at the croquet and horse shoes, too, before the day was over. Although it was a fine turnout, we did miss Gino Carpenter, Ruth Duffy and the Kurtz's, who were vacationing . Betsy Besse reported that her month-old Richard was progressing nicely, and Bernie DeTchon is completely recuperated and once again working determinedly on her golf game. On the guest list were Kay and Ricky Barch's friends, Marcia and Richard Cromer, and Phyllis Greer's mother, Mrs. Leah Johnston, from St. Petersburg, Florida . Our pot-luck dinner provided .such on amplitude of food that we were all content to climax a super day by sitting about leisurely and singing. Our first fall meeting, a downtown one, in on effort to lure both the east and west side 路residents, was a luncheon at Higbee' s Silver Grille, on October fourth. The small number present prevented our deciding any very weighty problems, but Ruth relayed Gino Carpenter' s suggestion that we hold some evening meetings so the girls who work Saturdays might be able to attend . Separate east and west side meetings might also improve the attendance record . In future we plan to reserve the first Saturday of each month for our meeting, which will give us a definite dote to work from. We enjoyed our luncheon and meeting, but all ended up with stiff necks, strained, no dougt while looking for Leta Crawford, who hod promised to be present. See next issue for the answer to the burning question, "What become of Leta?" As for us, we'll find out November 1, when Helen Swart will be entertaining us, with the west siders providing a pot luck luncheon for Founders' Day. Phyllis Greer

28 COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO Dear Alpha Sigma Alphas: The Colorado Springs Alumnae group was active th roughout the summer months with the regular business meetings spiced with bridge, picnics, a stork shower for Ve na Crowde r, and a cabin party for the families in the hills. The short summer has now been replaced by the incomparable beautiful Colorado autumn . With this change from summer to autumn come plans for the winter, set in motioo by the installation of officers for the new year. We enjoyed a deliciously prepared dinner at this time in the home of Mildred Truman . The meeting was opened by our retiring president, Virginia Maloney, who presided during the impressive consecration service. The new officers were then installed and the meeting was in their hands. The following officers for 1947-1948 are : President-Mildred Larson Truman, BB ; Vice-Presi dent-Lois Young Borst, BB; Secretary-Helen Ruth Wilcoxon Hoffman, BB; Treasurer-Virginia Shepherd, BB; Phoeni x Correspondent-Helen Edwards Shoup, AA; and Welfare Chairman-Grace Harris Lloyd, BB . Grace Lloyd ha s again graciously accepted the respon sib ility of Social Service and Welfare Chairman . You know Grace has done a sterling piece of work as Regional Social Service Chairman for the Red Cross. Coupling the Red Cross work with ours gave Grace no idle hours, I am sure. Through her contacts in distributing magazines, clothing and cheer, she has built a high ASA respect. Plans are being made for a reunion of ASA's at the luncheon at the Daniels-Fisher Tea Room in Denver, October 24th, during the Teache rs' Convention. We are hop ing all ASA's will be inspired to help make this a memorable event. In the next bulletin from, Colorado Springs we will tell you of our social as well a s welfare programs for the year . Yours in the Bonds of ASA, Helen E. Shoup

COLUMBUS, OHIO Dear A.lpha Sigs everywhere: It really does not pay to ever mi ss an alumnae meeting. I did . And it was the wrong one to mi ss. It was election night and I got elected to this job. Now you all will have to suffer along with me for the coming year. That happened last May. In June we dispense with business and have the famili es all get together for a big picnic. We had fifty-one present this year , which was a drop of three over last year. Must get after those three mi.s sing persons. We had o grand time though , and certainly enjoyed seeing the gal s en fami lie . We have our picnics out here in Reynoldsburg inasm uch os we have twelve acres where in to roam. The fog crept over the field and broke up the party much too early though. September saw us all together again at the home of Mrs. W. A. Martin. Mrs. F. E. Montgome ry was her most able a ss istant . Rachel Von Hook, our retiring president, duly installed the new office rs and after that we had a right good o ld gab fest. Inasmuch os there were about twenty girls there we really did some gabbing . We were so very happy to welcome our new mem ber, Harriett Keller Sutton from Alpha Alpha's chapter and are quite certain that she is going to be a most welcome addition to our group. Antiques are her hobby and when she saw the lovely cups and saucers that our hostess was

using she really was interested. Must keep her in mind for a future program. Cleveland alumnae are going to get one of our most faithful and loyal members, Mrs. Ralph Tibbals. We certainly did hate to see her move but when our husbands are tran sferred, we must tag along. Life and love make us that way, eh? Yours in A. S. A., Dorothea Windom

DENVER, COLORADO . Dear Alpha Sigs : After six years of absence, we were once more able to have our first Alumnae meeting at the inspiring cabin of Vera Campbell. The crisp air was perfect, the hamburgers fried by two capabl路e husbands couldn't have been better, and the cwffee just "hit the spot." The men so enjoyed themselves that it was hard to tear them away and get started home. We held a short business meeting with our president, Lucy Flanders, in charge. The committee presented the year's program for our approval, and it promises to be lots of fun . Several new Alpha Sigs in Denver were brought up and turned over to the welcome committee to visit and cordially invite to our future gatherings. Meeting was adjourned in favor of taking a hike while the sun was still warm. 路 Polly Schlosser brought two new alums into our midst, whom we were very happy to have with us. They are Lurette Miller and Katherine Prendergast. Both are new Denver teachers, so will be with us all year. We are all looking forward to teachers convention as our next , big get-together when undergraduates and alumnae will meet at the Daniel s- Fisher Tea Room for an exceptional lunch and program. ' Bye now, Martha Eskridge

DES MOINES, IOWA Dear Alpha Sig Sisters: Here we are again starting "'ff the fall activities. How wonderful it is to meet and greet our sisters again after the "awful" h.eat of the summer. Ruth Hooks was in [)es Moines for one short weekonly had a short telephone conversation with her the nig'ht before she left for her C~l ifor nia home . She says she likes California and her work out there. Her town and her school are new. Bell Flower was one of the war boom towns which has become permanent. Nelle Gabrielson Raney came home and stayed with her mother while her brother Jack, his wife and three boys, took a trip to Yellowstone, the Black Hills and a week's fishing in M innesota . We had a fine visit one night. Edith Burr spent the summer with her sister in Colorado. Foe Shawhan taught all that hot s ummer long at Drake and then went to Clear Lake in northern Iowa for two short weeks of vacation . Grace Carver and her daughter, Margaret, were there at the same time. They have now moved into their apartment at 2835 Cente~ . Talked with Dorothy Battershell Pryor not so long ago. She saw Pauline and her family when they were here from California for a few days. So sorry about Lyle Black's serious heart attacks and hope he is much improved by this time. Lillian Hethershaw Dunnell is teaching in Central College in Pella this year. She is now making her home with her sister Mae. It's nice to have her back in town and we and she are looking forward to getting together. Met Opal Callison Moore on the street this noon. She says their new house is nearly ready to move into.

NOVEMBER, 1947 The Des Moines Alumnae will hove a foil meeting but the dote was not decided upon at the time this news letter hod to go to press.

Love to oil of you, Florence Harley

DETROIT, MICHIGAN Hello, once more, Since our lost news letter, the Detroit Alumnae Chapter has really been busy! On June 7th, Evelyn Bell arid Virginia Carpenter paid us a visit. Their well-known, able leadershi p, with the assistance of our group, pledged thirty-five girls into ASA, as Rho Chi members at a very delightful formal dinner at the Whittier Hotel. We were truly sorry that Evelyn , Virginia, and our own Fran hod to miss most of the dinner, but we understand that AI Vredenburg gave them a thrilling ride to the airportthey mode it! Later in June we were very pleased to be guests of the Notional Council, which was meeting at Dearborn Inn. Not to be outdone by the usual June bridal processions in the dining room of the Inn, Wilma Sharp honored our bride of twenty-five yeqrs, Norma Aliber. We wonder how the Council kept minds on work when we know of the interruptions the arrival of each new bridal couple caused . A " little bird" told us! Seriously, we do wish to convey to them how very much we enjoyed the close contact we hod with them. In a small measure we tried to show our appreciation by .having them as guests on a sig htseeing tour of adjoining Canada and the lake shore, followed by luncheon at the Stockholm, Detroit's popular smorgasbord restaurant. On September 14, Dearborn Inn was again the scene of our activities. Initiation services were held for the new Rho Chi Chapter of Wayne University. It was very impressive-everyone in white. Jacqueline Jolly, President of Rho Chi , was the gen ial toastmistress. Toasts were gi ve n by Evelyn Bell, Marion Tote, President of Sigma Rho Chi Alumnae, and Ambrosio Ford, our own President. Mary McKoy furnished the music, and perhops when I tell you that on October 1 1 she gives her on recital at the Detroit Institute of Arts, you will realize what a musical treat we hod . October 4, a glorious foil day, inaugurated our new round of monthly meetings . Our hostess was Juvo Beeman, assisted by Kathleen Schwab. The luncheon table was one to behold with rapture and the scalloped half shell of watermelon piled high with very colorful fruit nestled in a bed of lettuce on a huge troy-accompanied by some "cheese affairs," which only Juvo could make, defies description . This meeting was highlighted by the news that Sora Jane Bumgorc;lner, who is very well known to many of you , is working diligently on plans for the Regional Convention . All of this should be "proofpositive" that we really hove been busy. We ore going forward with high hopes that in collaboration with the new Detroit Alumnae group as well as the newly established undergraduate chapter at Wayne University, we may pool our efforts and talents for even more diversified and enjoyable activities . Here's to Alpha Sigma Alpha, Louise Stirton

DETROIT, MICHIGAN-RHO CHI At the September meeting at Ellen Imboden's we hod our election of officers.

EMPORIA, KANSAS Dear Alums : "After oil these years we hove finally got one, and boy, is it a beauty! " This is what oil Epsi lon Epsilon chapter girls ore saying to each other and to anyone else who will listen, and translated it means that the Emporia Alpha Sigs hove a new home that is really something to look at. To purchase the house the alumnae chapter, with the advice of Clarence Beck, our attorney, incorporated under the nome of Alpha Sigma Alpha Alumnae, Inc., and any alumna or active may be a stockholder by paying dues each year. It is a Kansas charter and is a nonprofit organization. Letters were sent to out-of-town alums, asking for donations for the house fund and the response was good. Members of the governing board ore Barbaro Caywood, president; Virginia DeBouge, vicepresident; Elinor Randel, sec retory; Frances Freemon, treasurer; and Gloria Merideth, Gl 0 dys Sughrue oncl Lucille Jones. The house, situated at 929 West Street, is 路a Iorge , spacious, 12-room house with a slee ping porch and three baths. There is lots of swell yard space and the girls held "coke" dotes by the fish pond during rush week. The house is six blocks from the campus, but the girls don't mind the walk since they hove the house to which to return. This year Epsilon Epsi lon chapter is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary, and we hope that oil Alpha Sigs will be able to attend our Founders' Day reunion and luncheon, November 1 5. The alumnae ore se nding out a special . letter to oil out-of-town olum~oe so that they will know about it in plenty of time . The undergraduates will be the guests of the alums. In turn, the alums will be the guests of the undergraduates at a luncheon at the chapter house during the Emporia State Homecoming activities. The Alpha Sigs hod a good rush talk for this season: seven girls were graduated in May or July, and by September oil were married . That is oil the news for now. See you soon. Love in ASA, / Joan Litchfield

HAM.PTON ROADS, VIRGINIA With the foiling of leaves, the brisk sting of the wind, and the smell of damp earth, October has invaded the scene and this alumna is .wondering where the sum mer went.


THE PHOENIX

30 We did things of all varieties; trips, new jobs, visits with the folks , romps with the children ond, best of all, just plain loafing . One of the highlights was a visit by Miss Evelyn Bell. The Suffolk girls came over and we hod a grand luncheon meeting comparing notes, planning and just talking. We only wish that it could happen more often. Our fir st official meeting was at the home of Ann Irelond, who k indly offered a sheltering wing to us wondering Alpha Sigs; few though we were. The objective of electing officers was accomplished with the following results : President-Martha Halloway, Vice- PresidentMrs. Ray Shield (Winnie Rew), Secretory-June Sterling, Treasurer-Mary Margaret East, and CorrespondentMabel Brumley. We were mighty glad to welcome a new alumna, June Sterling (BE ) into the fold. She went right to work too, as our new secretary. Oh! yes-Mrs. Harold Sayles (Shirley Rawles) has a brand new baby girl, Tamara. Right now Shirley is in "the book says" stage and quite a busy mama. We will keep you posted on our plans and promise p'lans for the year in the next issue . The warmest greetings to all Alpha Sigs everywhere . Mabel Brumley

HARRISBURG, VIRGINIA Dear Alpha Sigs: Vocation is over and it holds lots of pleasant memories for our new chapter, but we hope to do even more things this winter. The stork has been pretty busy delivering "blessed events" among our charter members . Three, so far, and more on the way. Our only regret is they're not ASA mot~rial-all boys!! In April we had a dinner meeting at the Shanvalke Hotel. Lynn Mitchell of B. E. Chapter delightfully entertained us with her piano renditions. Also, we were es- 路 pecially fortunate to have Mrs . Louise Cox Carper as our guest of honor. Mr~ . Carper was a schoolgirl friend of our Mrs. Martz, which certainly bore out her talk to us on "The Value of Friendship ." We spent a pleasant hour or more talking about the beginning of ASA. We were invited by the ,Beta Epsilon girls to attend their joint ASA-SSS picnic in May. Lots of fun! Our main June meeting was a delicious buffet snpper, with Margery McGrath and Hannah Cox as co-hostesses. We had several girls visiting us who were home on vocation, bringing with them news of other girls. The entertainment was furnished without forethought-the local Firemen 's Parade went right by the front door-we hod ' ring side seats ! In September we had a " Theater-Sundae" party with Jo Vaugh, president of the Beta Epsilon college chapter, as a visitor. Jo invited us all to the annual "Cafe Society" rushing party next month-provided baby sitters con be found, we all hope to go bock to college for a nite' We hod several picnic suppers during the summerbringing the hGbby and children. It was lots of fun getting to know the " Sweethearts" of our Alpha Sigs. This may be early, but we wish you all a "very 路Merry Chri stmas and a Happy New Year!" Yours in ASA, Betty Forhonitch

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA , Alpha Sigs everywhere: Summer is a thing of the post and the Indianapolis alums ore ready for work. This has been proven, as we have hod two meetings so for this year. The first was a call meeting at Genevieve Leib's. Several changes in our officers hod to be mode. Our president, Bereniece Martin , resigned, due to illness in her family . Edith Boum Miller is the proud mother of a new baby daughter, and with two youngsters she felt it wise to turn her office to onother member. Besides electing new officers we mode the year's program together. We ore having a supper meeting every other time. Christmas will be celebrated by ' hoving the children present. After all, at Christmas we think of the little ones and lost year's children's party was such a success, we all want a repeat performonce. . Our official October meeting was held in the charming new home of Thelma Thomas . It was wonderful to see all the girls and hear of their activities this summer. Wont to hear some of the chit-chat of our doings? We're happy to tell you that Bereniece's husband is much better and is able to enjoy rides these nice Autumn days. Bereniece is teaching this year. Adelaide McCarty took a Lake trip on a Canadian boot to Duluth, Port Arthur and other points in Canada . Thelma Thomas moved into her new home in June and has been happily engaged in making it "A Home

Bea!.:tiful." She still found time to spe nd a few weeks in Michigan and Portsmouth . Besides teaching in Bible School this summ er, Peg Snedeker took a trip East with her husband and two kiddies. But alas, her traveling days are not over. Peg told us that they ore moving to Jacksonville, Florida, soon . How we hate to part with her. She has been with us five years and has been so generous with her time for AS A. Esther Burge takes over Peg 's office of Treasurer, and hopes she can keep the budget balanced a s well a s Peg . I believe you can do it, Esther. Fran Rose spent a month in New York and the rest of her vocation time took her to New Haven where she was Matron of Honor in Lee Bennett's wedding . Weddings were very popular by Alpha Sigs and their families . Jane McDavitt was as busy as two people, getting ready for her s ister's wedding (and a lovely one it was ). The entire McDavitt family of five was in the wedding party. Mary Ann, as flower girl, almost outshone the bride. After the wedding Jane rested by getting the boys off to camp and enjoyed a trip to St. Joe, Michigan , and Chicago, Illinois. We hod· some new arrivals into this world, too. May 31, ·Florence Lull welcomed another boy into her family . He's darling . Florence's husband brought him, as well as Johnny, when he came after her at the meeting the other night. He slept through all our admiration party. And as you might know, you who ore acquainted with Florence, this addition didn't stop Florence from traveling. They spent two weeks in New York this September. Now she tells us she is going home (Arkansas) for a couple of weeks. P.S. Florence, give us your recipe for all that "wim, wigger and witality." Edith Miller and Von are so happy with their new daughter. They have a fine boy. about two, so you con see why they ore pleased with the girl. Betty Rice says she hod a lazy summer with a grand vacation in Michigan . I can't imagine Betty being lazy, and neither can you when you hove the proof of what she has done on the Philanthropic program and also working for Red Cross at the Veterans' Hospital. Frances Shaw is one of our talented ASA's. You never hear it from her though. Not only does she teach school, but this summer she taught Art and Handcraft at Butler Demonstration school. Besides all of this, she is the Reader at the Second Church o( Christ Scientist. This is quite an honor as she ·is the youngest Reader they have had, and ·according to Marie, Frances is doing a beautiful piece of work. Julia Gerlach is busy spending her time between her husband in Little Rock, Arkansas, and her daughter here in Indianapolis. Dorothy Karrmann played nurse maid to her son who had whooping cough. However, after this she made up for lost time by going to French Lick, Indiana, and Chicago, Illinois. Helen Noblitt and her husband enjoyed entertaining their year and a half daughter, Quinta Grace, to summertime fun of picnics, play in the parks and all the activities children enjoy. Letha Gaskins, our artist, has been very busy. She and 0 . K., her husband, were at Mayo's. 0 . K. went up for a check-up and I'm happy to say things were not as bad as they had expected. Letha "has been painting, getting ready fo exhibitions. And, by the way, she is showing thirty pictures at the Neville Art Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin, b:?ginning September 7 to October 7. For


THE PHOENIX

32 fun and relaxation, Letha and 0 . K. visited in Detroit and then were the guests af Francis and Mary Gallagher, Green Bay, Wisconsin, and enjoyed a cruise an "Sea Legs," Fran's boat. Genevieve and I started the summer by journeying to Dearborn Inn for Council meeting. What a pleasure it was to be with our National officers. We did plenty of work but we had fun along with it. Who could help it with such grand girls? Then Marie Kingdon and Genevieve spent a week at the lake with their husbands. Marie's big interest right now is her darling red-headed grandchild, and she is a darling , never cries and never knows a stranger. Of course, I have a wonderful nephew, who takes care of all my spare moments, 'nuff said. I really think I have rambled an about our girls enough, so that you can know of our interests. With all our fun we are working loyally for ASA, and wish for you a pleasant year. Eloise Proctor

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI Reviewing the last two meetings of the year, we 路liad a _picnic at Kensington Park in Kansas City, Kansas, in April. It was a family affair on Sunday afternoon. The hostesses were Margaret Bryant, Vera Salyer, Louise Gillis and Beth Magers. We had a short business meeting and elected the following board members: Dorothy Kreek , vice-president; Rl)th Fleischaker, corresponding secretary; Mildred Hanthorn, treasurer; Lora Murrell, publicity chairman; Frances Raine, philanthropic chairman; Ruth Pennell , directory chairman; Rubye Waterbury, auditing chairman; Marty West, ways and means chairman. A good time was enjoyed by all and it was decided that we would have at least one family affair a year. In May we had a dessert-course at Ann Viola's. It was also installation of the new officers and those who still had a year to serve on their term renewed their pledges. The a ssi sting hostesses were Jerry Aitchison, Rubye Waterbury and Dorothy Clifton . The board met in June at Dorothy Kreek's and made the foundation for the next year's activities. Our opening meeting was a rush tea on September twentieth at Marian Fischer's new home. It was a lovely tea and all of us were happy to see Marian's home which we had all heard so much about. The assi sting hostesses were Dulcie Calhoun, Dorothy Kreek, Lora Murrell, Ruth Grube and Virginia Callison. The next meeting is a luncheon out at the Lake of the Forest club house . Jean Hutchison has a summer home at the Lake and wanted us to come aut before bad weather set in . We are all looking forward to this meet ing. The a ss isting hostesses are Marty West and Ja Wady. We have big plans for the year. The ways and means chairman, Marty West, is busy selling Christmas cards and wrappings. Also she has some other plans to make money which haven't come to light as yet.

MUNCIE, INDIANA We are anticipating Ball State Homecoming Saturday, October 1 1, as that means the time to see all our Alpha Sig sisters and catch up on the latest news about them. Chi Chi chapter is planning a dinner at the Hotel Roberts, and we know it will be as well done as usualmaybe even better, if possible, since this year. they aren't . worrying with fall rushing and homecoming at the same time. Yes, our Alma Mater has finally become wise in the ways of rushing and pledging, and we hear they are doing neither until the second quarter is well under way. Our Muncie Alums have really been going strong since Betty Miller took over the presidency. She may be little, but she's mighty peppy, and things have been happening. First 路of all, we now meet every month, summer and winter, on the third Saturday. We have a printed program all set up, and things are happening on schedule. In July there was a fine picnic supper with Mildred Monroe and family in Winchester. In August the meeting was with Betty at her home, and on September twentieth Elinor Keller was hostess at her home in Gaston. Our October meeting is Homecoming with the actives. Joan Whitcraft was ta have taught here and been our treasurer, but she resigned and went to Marion ta teach, and Grace (Richards) Rankin again took over the handling of money. Jean Barlow and Doris Margan are both working in the office af the FOODLINER, a new larger supermarket here. Delano (Southard) Peden is teaching at Portland, and Jean Moulton is working in an office in Denver, Colorado, having given up teaching far the time being. June (Wilkinson) Widmeyer writes me that she is moving to Elwood this month, where Kenny is opening an appliance store. June says she has another son, but did'nt say when he was born or .,.;,hat his name is. With inspiring, enthusiastic letters from Evelyn Bell and Genevieve Leib to spur us on, we are busy getting information about all of our girls, where they are located, etc. After this week-end there should be much more to tell you about what is happening to Chi Chi girls. Now, me for finding a goad baby sitted so I can get out to the campus and see all af those good-looking Alpha Sigs, their boy friends and husbands, the bonfire, the theatre rush, the parade,-1 know there'll be a fine ASA float, the football game, and then the Alpha Sig dinner followed by the dance at the gym to Clyde Trask's orchestra. Is it the same way at all Homecomings? Anyway, with me, Homecoming practically means Alpha Sigma Alpha Reunion. Anna Marie (Yates) Bull

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK Dear Alpha Sigs: Thank goodness the World Series is over! If, for any reason the series had been prolonged, I am afraid this newsletter would never have been written. But it is all aver, my beloved Bums lost, but with a day ta recuperate, I have donned my thinking cap and will attempt to bring you up to date on our activities . Last May, Marie Zavislan was chairman of our first Mother's Day Tea , an event we hope to make annual. We used the Mather-Patroness colors af gold and white in our decorations, and the flower, the daisy in corsages for our guests and far the centerpiece an the tea table.

34 recalled a few verses from the poem of Edgar A. Guest on " Mother's Day" . There shall never be another quite so tender, quite so kind As the pa t ient little mother; nowhere on this earth you'll find Her affection duplicated; none so proud if you are fine . Could her worth be overstated? Not by any words of m.ine. Vain are all our tributes to her if in words alone they dwell. We must live the praises due her; there's no other way to tell Gentle mother that we love her. Would you say, a s you recall All the patient se rvice of her, you've been worthy of it all? And this was one of our tributes to her. A tea , and special services to make her one with us in our sisterhood. The tea itse lf was held from two until six, with the services for the degree at four o'clock . All afternoon girls with their mothers or mothers-in-law poured in and out. At .service time eight girls escorted their own mothers proudly, and the following were inducted: Mrs. Lettie Colyer Hartman, mother of Lillian Ferguson; Mrs. Lucy Putnam Levis, Martha L. Marse's mother; Mrs. Marie Lemke Lloyd, Gloria Lloyd Lisy's mother; Mrs. lzabella Baurnann Mason, Joan Mason Horwitt's mother; Mrs. Florence Baum Pevney, mother of Sandy Pevney; Mrs . Caroline Lupsha Schmidt, mother of Mary Schmidt Zachow; Mrs. Paul ine Dininno Varrichio, mother of Madeline Varrichio; and Mrs. Augusta Rose Zapp, mother of Ruth Zapp. One mother patroness said she felt like an " old grad" s ince she had taken the degree back in 1 935. She was Mrs. Jennie C. Barrett, mother of Billie Barrett, and she had been inducted at Kappa Kappa "long ago". The day's event was well planned by an able chairman and committee . The whole affair was held in Em Frost's lovely studio adjoining her Park School of Cookery. Marie Zavislan headed the committee which was made up of Ginger King, Lillian Ferguson, Joan Horwitt, Jane Livingston and Betty Reimet. Daisy corsages were made by the girls, who arose at 4 :30 a.m . to purchase the flowers at the famous Fulton's Market in downtown New York. Food donations of homemade cookies helped swell the abundant tea table arrayed with "beautiful" and delicious food . Even the "petite fours" were decorated with ASA and they were the ardous handiwork of Em and Marie Zavislan. Name cards cut . out like mother patroness crowns were for our mothers. Ours were cut out like our pins. Dr. Gertrude Yorke, our chapter president at the time, conducted the entire ceremony midst candlelight and soft music. . With such lovely settings, such worthy personages, no tnbute could be more fitting than to have our mothers became "Mother" Alpha Sigma Alphas. Billie Barrett

Many of us in Philadelphia had the pleasure of showing off our City of Brotherly Love to the crew of His Majesty's Navy, when the English good will ship, the Sheffield, was here in port at the end of September. It was such fun, and really good tests for our knowledge of American history. There were many embarrassing questions, believe me! Hope those other chapters along the Atlantic•seaboard enjoyed the same experience. We will be looking for all of you at our next meeting . Connie Pennypacker, Nu Nu At our recent alumnae luncheon Jean Reimet asked me to send news of the Kappa Kappa alums. I understand that she is taking care of the Nu Nu news.

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA Dear Alpha Sigs: In order to bring the Pittsburgh Alumnae news up -todate I must go back to last June. Our last meeting was a luncheon at Medora Di etzel 's new home in the country, near Seruckley. We all had a delightful time touring the attractive house and the beautiful gardens. It was hard to realize we were so close to a large city. About twelve of the girls made the trip and we certainly had a delicious lunch! Now our fall and winter plans are beginning to materialize . Our first meeting is to be Saturday, October 11th, at the Pittsburgh Field Club, with Mary Lou Marshall and Ada Meyer a s hostesses. It should be beautiful for the foliage is really at its height in Western Pennsylvania. At this meeting further plans will be made for the rest of the year. It's hard to bring much news without a meeting but I know of two additions to the group :--a daughter to Iva Arnold Rochez and a son to Bertha Motz Catterall. Eleanor Conrad was ma'rried in September, and that is all our current events· to date, that I can report. Sincerely in ASA, Ada St. C. Meyer •

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA Dear Alpha Sigma Alphas : Quite a lot has happened to our Richmond group since my last letter. Last month we had a benefit bridge for a local hospital and made over $125, which we used to buy tables to be used in the wards. We had forty-five tables of bridge and I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the laurels go. to Barbara Tripp Friend for making such a success of the whole affair. We met at Grace Raper's for our October meeting and caught up on 'a lot of the latest news. Anne Martinstein Gerkin is now in Japan and we plan to keep her well informed with a letter from all of us at Christmas. Myrtle Lee Holt Johnson is leaving for Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to be with Dick. Jean Hutton Lugar is back home and she will be our leader for the coming year. Ella Marsh Pilkinton Adams is in Norfol k with Jack. The bachelor girls are getting fewer each year. Sue Harper and Marjorie Pierce were marri ed in June . Lillian Elliott was married September 7th to Thomas Ogburn Bondurant at the First Methodist Church in Farmville, Virginia . Quite a few of the ASA's were there. We saw Elsi e Thompon Burger and that was an occasion! Elsie and her husband are going to Cleveland, Ohio, where he will go to embalming school. The stork has done a little visiting this summer and he brought Virginia Rudd Williams a boy and Mary Ann Chaplin Lohr a girl. Soon he will be visiting more of our girls. Pat Garth and Joscelyn Gillum have come to Richmond . Pat is working in the Federal Reserve Ban k and Joscelyn is teaching . I haven' t done anything rash this summer but join th e

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI Our first mee ting of the year was held in October at th e home of Margaret Sutton Hall with Karol Oliphant Greeson as a ss istant hostess. As usual, this fir st meeting was devoted to making plans for the year and meeting new me mbe rs. Mary Bruce and Betty Jo Montgomery have come to St. Loui s from Phi Phi Chapter. Both girls are teaching in Clayton. They are good girls to have a s they have so recentl y been a ssoc iated with an acti ve chapter and we feel they can give us renewed vigo r. It has been difficult for us to start our new year with as much enthusiasm and to get things under way because the person who was alwa ys "on the spot " to see that things were happening has moved away. Elizabeth Rqmans Woody, whom everyone cons idered the "spar k plug" of our organization, is now living in South Orange, New Jersey. Mr. Woody has been transferred to the New York office following hi s appointment as Assi stant to th ~ Vice Preside nt of American Telephone 路and Telegraph in Charge of Magazine Advertising. Elizabeth ha s done more than any other person to keep our organization together and in promoting worthwhile activities for us. She has held all offices, not once 路 but many times. After leaving Alpha Beta Chapter, EJizabeth taught mathematics in high sc hools for about three years. She then married and came td the St. Loui s area where she has made many valuable contributi ons both to her so rority chapter end to he r community. The Woody family which includes two fine boys, Mel vin and Kennerly, lived in the suburb of Webster Groves. Kennerly was valedictorian of his high school class and he is now a fre shman at Dartmouth . It would be impossib le to name all of Elizabeth 's contributions. She was constantl y at work on worthwhile proj,e cts in he r clubs, in the sc hoo ls, and in her church. One of her main . interests was the League of Women Voters in which she was active for ten years and president for two success ive years. She was very active in the MotherCraft Class of The St. J ohn's Methodi st Church and on t he board of the Monday Club, the largest and most act ive federat ed club in W ebste r Groves. We are indeed proud of the outstanding record mad e by Elizabeth and her family i路n St. Loui s and St. Loui s County. Our chapter and th e community have lost one of th e most inte rested and act ive me mbe rs but we are proud t o know tha t Eliza beth will be an a sset to he r new community and alumnae chapte r. Many farewell parties were given for Eliza beth. The chapter had a picnic in he r ho nor and Helen Joh nso n Griffith e nte rtain ed with a love ly tea . Miss Marian Tate of Det roit, who is pres ident of th e a lumnae chapter there , wa s here in Jun e a tte nding a home eco nomi cs convention . A few of our girls e nte rtained Marian at the Uni versity Club and repo rted that they had a grand time with her. We St. Louisa ns are tak ing an unusual amount of pride in the winner of t he Wilma Wilson Sharp award. Sara h was a membe r of ou r chapte r while she Ji ved in St. Louis and was ou r president at o ne time. He le n Johnson Griffith is encourag ing all af us to think about what we can do ta hel p veterans. She sings solos and leads th e singing at some of the Sunday church se rvices at the Veteran 's Hos pital in J effe rso n Barrac ks. Helen sa id she hesitated ta si ng for the bays a s she was

sure they would nat want to hear an "old woman". She was so thrilled after her first experience that she is returning ta help out whenever it is her turn . Helen said she received more from the boys than she gave . These se rvices are well attended by the boys there and they are broadcast ta every room in this large hospital far the benefit of those who are unable to attend . Ow new officers for the year are : Loui se Cosby Quick, President; Gertrude Brandstetter Swartz, Vice-Presi dent; Lola Brandenburg Leedham, Secretary; and Gladys Parks Marsh, Treasurer.

SUFFOLK, VIRGINIA Retrogress ion in high gear ! 'Tis back in February and on the 14th, too, the Suffolk alums are gathered 'round the fire place at Frances Hewitt's -that's me . I tried to make everything real "valentiny" and just to make me feel goad they ooohed and aaahed . Finally, after they gave me the third degree on the how's 'n wherefore's, I fe ssed up-nothin ' original about m'pahty- just refer to page ??? of " Better Homes and Gardens" and there it was; everything from pink pop corn balls centered in paper dailies on down to the tinted apples pierced with Cupid's arrow. No busi ness at this meeting-played bingo and chatted about this ' n that. For our March meeting we traveled via bus aver to Franklin 'n there was Tee Aaron waitin ' at the station ta lead the way to her home. Here we elected our officers: Harriett Brown Johnson-president; Mary St. Clair Bugg - v ice-pres ident; Viola Surring Raher-setretary; Myra Aaron-treasurer; Frances Beaton Hewitt-Phoenix correspondent and reporter; and Paula Butler Ballardchaplail'l . After eating yummy canapes ' n sipping tea , we were all mystified with what Tee found in the tea leaves far our future. 'Twas so much fun! Here's hoping for some good news in the tea leaves at Tee's an our next visit with her. In the merry month of May, the Norfolk alums were invited over for a bridge luncheon at the Elliott Hotel. Hats off to Paula Ballard for doing all the " behind-thescene" jobs for this; Harriett was in there "pitching", too. During the latter part of the summer we were ever so lucky to, have Evelyn Bell meet with us for lunch whil e she was visiting her sister in Norfolk; the Norfo lk gals met with us for this, too. Mary McKay was vaca ti oning in Suffol k at this time and was able to be with us, too. It's always a pleasure and an inspira tion to ha ve Miss Be ll in our midst. Some of the girls who met her for the first time came back sa y ing, "She's just charming" and she definitely is. Now o ur A.S .A. calendar says Se ptember and a s our usual custom we began our year by meeting with Mull y at the Teache rage. By the way, Mull y, chri ste ned Mary St. Clair Bugg, is preside nt of the Hospital Library Association; our hospital library was one of our chief topics. Mully suggested that we bring magazines as well a s books si nce so many of the patients prefe r them; and she shou ld k now 'cause week after week Mull y ha s been every Tuesday and Thursday to whee l around books on our Iii push c~rt to each pati ent 's roo m. Then we are quite busy gathering o le cl othes, hats, shoes 'n what hav e yo u for a rummage sal e so that we might add to the funds for a pro jected book machine for this region. We ' ll let you know how profitable our rummage sa le is; it could be from "rags to riches"-we hope sa! Frances B. Hew itt

TULSA, OKLAHOMA Dear Alpha Sigs : We Tulsa Alums ore off to o fine start! At our fir st meet ing of the year held at the home of Jockie Corson with Margie Jeonne Miner and Nodine Pork os cohostesses we hod twenty members present. Margie Jeanne, 'our new president, presided ot our business meeting very efficiently in spite of much jabbering and talking of the summer's activities. We mode plans f?r our October rummage sole, which is an onnuol affo1r, and made a tentative schedule for our monthly meetings. We welcome four new members to our chapter, three: Wando Chronister, Jackie Camp, and Louise Maxey from our Beta Gamma chapter at Tahlequah; and Mrs. Elaine Eitel from Alpha Beta chapter, Churchville, Missouri . Elaine and her husband, Dr. John Eitel, and their two adorable daughters, moved to Tulsa from Sapulpa, Oklohomo. We know these girls will prove to be a great asset to our chapter. Mary Darby, a charter member of the Tulsa Alums, is leaving us soon to join her husband in Independence, Kansas where they will make their home. Mary has served 'us well through the years and we shall certainly miss her. During recent years she has taken much active interest in our local Panhellenic and was to serve as our Ponhellenic representative this year. We hope that Mary will not forget us and that she will be able to return to Tulsa often , to 'visit us. And no,w some news of what's been going on in Tulsa this summer: Margie Jeanne spent most of the summer at the beautiful campus of the University of Wisconsin in Madison working (and we do mean working) toward a masters degree in Physic;:ol Education. On her return trip to Tulsa she visited with Mary Weinberg, Erv Montgomery, o~d Joyce Harris in Chicago. Margie Jeanne, Mary, E.rv and Joyce were all charter members of our Beta Kappo chapter in. Macomb, Illinois . After returning to Tulsa, Margie Jeanne took a quick trip to Taos, New Mexico, Santo Fe, and Carlsbad. Our prexie really gets around . Oh yes, during the winter months, she settles down to being a most efficient physical education instructor at Roosevelt Junior High School in Tulsa. Jackie Corson, her husband, Dick, and son, Dickie (who is a conscientious kindergarten student this falll, spent the summer at their cabin on Grand Lake near Bernice, Oklahoma. Incidentally, Jackie has invited us to her cabin in May of next year for a week-end. Needless to soy, we accepted her invitation wholeheartedly and hope plans for this outing progress. Jackie is such a gracious hostess--and we ore looking forward to the coming of spring. After spending many months of careful planning and building, Jennie Fisk has recently moved into her new home on East 15th Street. She has invited us there for our December meeting. Jennie become a grandmother on July 3rd, when her daughter presented her with a fine nine pound grandson. Jennie isn't the first grandmother in our chapter, but she is certainly one of the proudest and happiest. We welcome Helen Solomon to our group this year. Helen was out all of last year due to illness. It's so good to hove her back with u~ again and to feel the presence of her dynamic personality.

To prove that we hove talent in our chapter, we offer Reno Moe Long as a living example. She has seventyseven pupils in Kindergarten this fall. How does she do it? Sheer ingenuity, and we're proud of her. Marcette Homm, with her husband and two daughters (the younger only a year old) took a very interesting trip through the Yellowstone Notional Pork and Keystone mountains this summer. They bought a trailer which they thought would be ideal for their trip, but on their return home decided it wasn't satisfactory so sold it. Morcette reports a wonderful trip, but doesn't exactly recommend vocation trips trailer style . On September 30th, yours truly presented a tiny, new Alpha Sig to our chapter; her name, Julie Brewer; weight six pounds, twelve ounces. So girls, be on the lookout for her in about sixteen years for we're already training her to be an Alpha Sig! Furthermore, we're expecting another tiny Alpha Sig for Christmas. Her parents ore Bill and Nodine Pork and we ore all anxiously awaiting her arrival. Nadine and I want to thank the alums for the adorable silver cups which they presented to us at our September meeting . They come as such a surprise to us and we hove fervent hopes of using them to a good advantage . We miss Odessa Alyea this year but hope that she and her husband will eventually return to make Tulsa tkleir home. Bob is attending school in Memphis and of course Odessa gave up her job with Stanolind Oil Co. here and went with him. Lots of luck to you both, Bob and Odessa, and let us hear from you. Incidentally, we'd like to hear from former Tulsa alums Ann Swann, Betty Begun, Harriet Umsted, Edna Chamberlain, and Julio Sligar to mention a few . Our Jane Mills has been selected as a model for the Panhellenic guest day fashion show, October the sixteenth. With all that glamour Jane possesses, we feel more than ably represented! This is more than enough for now. We hope to accomplish much this year and with the enthusiasm shown at our first meeting, we should accomplish much. Lots of luck to all you college chapters in rushing this fall. Love in Alpha Sigma Alpha, Sis Brewer

ALPHA State Teachers College, Farmville, Virginia

Dear Alpha Sigs: Everyone is back at schaal now, and has settled into the usual mode of life here at S.T.C. After such a wonderful summer it was hard to adjust ourselves to a routine of getting up early and going to classes, now, but we ore looking forward to what we know will be an eventful and successful year. Soon after school closed last spring, the now junio(s in ASA gave a houseparty on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. We really had a grand time despite sunburns and pot luck cooking. Quite a few af our ASA's did not return to school this fall, and our ch.a pter is much smaller. However, we feel that we will accomplish a great deal, and that we will be closer to our Alpha Sigma sisters because of this fact. Many of our ASA's who did not return have married . We miss them, but wish them much happiness. Those who married were Barbara Lee Myers, Eleanor Farmer, Betty Epperson, Norma Howard, and Kitty East. Others of our girls are working or teaching. Among those who did not return was our registrar, Helen Jackson. She was a great loss to us because of her talent and originality. We elected Sara Rawles to take her place. The annual college circus will be held October 25, and we are expecting many of the girls back for a visit. We ore planning to redecorate our chapter room this fall, and hope to have it ready, complete with a new color scheme, for rush season . Fall rushing begins this month, but since we have gone on semester basis this year at school, we won't be able to rush new girls until after first semester. It won't be bad to wait a little longer than usual, though, because we will have a chance to get to know all the girls better, and to discover some really good prospects for ASA thi s year. Here's wishing the best to all of you in your new year's work. . Best ASA love, Martha A. Hatcher

ALPHA BETA Northeast Missouri State College, Kirksville, Missouri

The Alpha Sigs are really setting the pace around here on the K.S.T.C. campus this fall. We're all so happy and glad to be back that we just can't keep our "wi m and witality" under control. We were sorry to lose several officers, but we hurried around and speedily elected new ones to fill the gaps. Pat Feese ste pped into the shoes of our former prexi e, Joy Johnson, who is working in Denver this year. Pat is a very charming and attractive little Alpha and can really handle her job. Jean Pevehouse was elected to assist Pat with her new presidential duties Vice-President that is. Norma Shearer is our new Chap~

lain and yours truly, Jackie Watkins, has taken over the "position" of Editor. Whee-we had fun at our opening social meeting, a wiener roast, no less, and out at Owenby's Lake too, just the best place we know. of around these here parts to have a p icnic. Course, unfortunately we had to hike out (and back) but we donned our blue jeans and took off. Really had a bang-up time, but we missed some of our favorite bright and shining faces . Wedding Bells really rang for the Alphas this summer. We want to wish all the brides and grooms much happiness, even if we do feel mighty sad not having you around anymore. Orchids to Jean Pevehouse, our little beauteous blonde from Malvern, Iowa, who walked away with all kinds of honors the other night when she won the title of "Miss Kirksville" at the contest sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce. Jean will represent Kirksville at the American Royal next week, and Who Knows? We have our fingers crossed that she will be chosen QUEEN OF THE ROYAL. That's not all, we Alphas are just taking bows all over the place. The eight class queen candidates for "Homecoming Queen" were chosen last week and we of the sisterhood really outdid ourselves. One half of the beauties are Alphas, to Pat Feese, Beverly Hull, Edith Norton, and Elsa Webbink we wish much luck. May the best gal win . We're really knocking ourselves out ~eking plans for rushing . With so many adorable girls on the campus this fall just watch our smoke! Rush season is sneaking up on us, all of a sudden it begins officially Oct. 13 . Partyparty, we can hardly wait. Sure wish you could all be here for our Alpha-Jama Breakfast and Gypsy Dance. We're planning a great time and sure the kids see it our way. By the way, "Ye Olde Founders' Day" is nearly upon us too. Hurray! the annual banquet is always a lovely event. We want to wish all of you from all of us a very grand and glorious year-a better and bigger one in A SA. Yours in ASA, Jackie Watkins

ALPHA GAMMA State Teachers College, Indiana, Pennsylvania

Dear Alpha Sigs : A cheery whistled strain of "Auld Lang Syne," bobbing red and white dinks, the friendliest smiles on campus, and the Alpha Sigs are back from summer vacation with a burst of enthusiasm . We have great plans for the coming ~ear, we Alpha Gems-plans for autumn picnics, spaghetti suppers, enjoying football games, and all the other gay outings that make for fun and incidentally, make those prospective freshmen pledges sit up and take notice. And speaking of Freshmen pledges-last week several of our girls gave their all for the rushing cause. That is, they washed dishes for hours on end at our local Panhellenic coffee hour. Last year we had the pleasant task of arranging tab~e decorations and emerged smiling


NOVEMBER, 1947 and smelling of those love ly flower centerpieces. This year we emerged with the sa me smiles but with the odor of Fels Noptha and so me wor k redden ed hands. But it was worth the ri sk of dishpan hands to mee t such pretty and pleasant new students. On next week's agenda is Homecoming- we ' ll meet some old acquaintances when our Alpha Sig alumnae <Jrrive at Indiana . Miss Belden, our sponsor, will serve tea in her apartment and we will display all our finery, including those Merit Award candlesticks, th e latter bearing testimony that we actives have kept up the old grads' .high scholastic standards. Then too, we are looking forward to a football game and a Saturday night dance to -entertain the home comers. We will all be plenty busy keeping track of botli former and future Alpha Sigma Alphas. Looks like we Gems won ' t have an idle moment in the ·next few weeks or in the coming year, doesn't it! It's <going to be great keeping you other Alpha Sigs posted •on our progress. We hope to make some of you look ·to your laurels with our glowing reports, we are out to break records in achievement and fun. Love in ASA, Lois Maize

The "Alums" are eagerly helping us to make Homeq>ming a huge success. Hallowe 'en is a wonderful time for serenading so the ·girls have planned a· special evening for singing. We plan to sing to the other sororities on campus. Of course Beta Beta hasn ' t forgotten the importance of our Winter and Spring rushing activities. We are al ready planning our rush parties so that we really can show our rushees what wonderful times the Alpha Sigs hove together. As there is to be no rushing this quarter, t he girls ore striving to become acquainted with os many new girls as possible and to know all of our campus fel lows. We are also trying to participate in all camiJUS ·activities as well. Love in ASA, Cathryn Z. Briggs

GAMMA GAMMA Northwestern State College, Alva, Oklahom~

Dear Alpha Sigs: Here we ore bock again with another note letting you all know about your sisters from Oklahoma . We all had ·O wonderful vocation since we lost read Phoenix letters. Wedding bells rang for our vice-president, Phyllis 'Nicolo . She was married to H. W . Wright, Jr., from

39 Cherokee, Oklahoma, August 24, 1947 , at the United Brethren Church he re in Alva . Our two weeks rushing season was climaxed by our traditional Black Diamond formal dinner and party, which we held at the Bell Hotel Ball Room, September 17, 1947 . At " bid house" we were all very happy to welcome nine pledges. The pledge service was held at noon in the home of Mrs. M. L. Provost, one of our patronesses. The patronesses, jointly, gave us a lovel y luncheon that day. Last Tuesday, October 7th, we held initiation for five members at the home of Mrs. W . E. Lane . This swells our ranks to a good working group. We welcome each and every one. We are now making plans for our part in the Golden Jubilee Homecoming here at Northwestern . The Alphas will have a float in the parade and have an openhouse; plenty of coffee and conversation, for our returning alumnae . Love in ASA, Velma Nickelson

EPSILON EPSILON Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia, Kansas

Dear Alpha Sigs : We hove already had a busy Fall; our great joy is, of course, our lovely new home. It is situated at 929 West Street here in Emporia, o~d is a Iorge white house with a beautiful south lawn, a fish pond, and a lovely little pagoda . One of the things which make this house so dear to the hearts of all Epsilon Epsilon girls is the fact that our Alpha Sig sisters occupied the same house nearly thirty years ago! We are planning a big celebration for our thirtieth anniversary in our new house. Rush week was quite successful in Epsilon Epsilon chapter. We pledged fourteen wonderful girls who will make grand Alpha Sigs. Already they are taking positions of leadership on the campus, and making us very proud of them . Homecoming activities will begin October 17. We ore parti cularly anxious to see this date roll around this year because Patricio Ford, one of our girls in Epsilon Epsilon chapter, has been selected as the candidate for homecoming queen by all the Greek organizations on the campus. We are so proud of Pat. We are putting forth every effort in backing her; and no one could meet a sweeter, more deserving girl for this great honor than Pat. Also at homecom ing, we are presenting a skit in the "Follies," which includes some original songs written by one of our pledges. Last year we won second place in the Follies; and this year we are planning on taking the grand prize! · We had our annual hayrack ride on October 4 . The pledges entertained us with some songs while we ate, and were they cute! Our traditional Snowball Formal Dance is scheduled for November 22 . Our Student Union ballroom has been newly redecorated recently and is reputed to be the loveliest in Kansas. We are holding our dance there, and have a contract with the best band on the campus. It should be a wonderful party. Our regular housemother, Mrs. Rose West , has been unable to be with us so far this year. We have had some wonderful ladies staying with us until Mother West 's ·return . Mrs. Carrie Patterson, an Alpha Sig alum, was with us during September. This month, our president's wonderful mother is our temporary housemother. These women deserve much credit because they hove been so


THE PHOENIX

40 wonderful to help us. We are hoping Mother West can be with us next month. Alpha Sigs are reall y tops on the Emporia State campus as always they will be. We have girls heading such organizations as: Sphinx and Alphathenian, both literary societies, Women's Athletic Association, and Sigma Pi Sigma, Pep organization. Two cheerleaders are Alpha Sigs, and we boast a drum majorette . We also have a pledge who is in the freshman play. We have a new counsellor, Mrs. Betty Johnson (Betty Cramer), who really is popular with the girls, and who helps us so much. She was an Alpha Sig in her college days, and has many ideas which she readily gives to our chapter. Open house for the fraternities starts October tenth. We have heard that all the fellas are anxio us to come to the Alpha Sig house because there's always a good time to be had with an Alpha Sig around . But we already know that's true of every Alpha Sig. Love in ASA, Jane Drum

ZETA ZETA Central Missouri State College, Warrensburg, Missouri

Dea r Sisters: The Zeta Zeta's entertained twenty-five rushees with a party at the Stadium Shelter House on Friday night, September 19. A red and white ceiling hung above the "Stork Club" floor, and the sa me colors were seen in the table decorations. Red and white carnation corsages were given as favors to the rushees. Group s inging , led by Peggy Pierce was enjoyed by all as was the entertainment. The numbers included Peggy Pierce singing "When You Were Sweet Sixteen," and a trio composed of Helen Taylor, Peggy Pierce, and Judy DeMasters harmonizing on " I Wish I didn't Love You So." Shirley Fieth, Ruth Evelyn Clark, and Jean Sontag swung out with the Andrew Sisters' recording of "Jack, Jack, Jack. " Ruthie Clark also did a super job as Mistress of Ceremonies. Finger sa ndwiches, punch, ice cream, and cake were enjoyed by all. Included among our guests were Mrs. Lloyd C. Grimes, our .sponsor, Mrs. Howard Fieth, and several alumnae . Goodnig hts were exchanged after the actives brought the festivities to a close by singing our Sweetheart Song, and it was agreed a grand time was had by all. Love and luck to all Alpha Sigs, Jean Sontag

ETA ETA Kansas State Teachers College, Pittsburg, Kansas

Dear Alpha Sigs : BANG! Like a stick of dynamite the Eta Eta's have started the new se mester with 3 1 new beauties. Yes, we have 31 new pledges and each one is a queen in her own respect. Thenty-six ambitious actives have returned with a lot of new ideas that are ready to fire. With originality plus, the rush season was opened with a pirate party in a loca l park. Rushees wore bright colored sashes around their waists, carried small swords with ASA on the handl es and each pirate was given a map with the directions to a treasure chest that contained food. A "Stairway to the Stars" preferential dinner closed the rush activities; over 75 were present. Two new officers were elected-Pat Scalet, to fill the position of vice-president, and Betty Kissee is our new chaplain . Did you know that the Miss Kansas of 1 94 7 is an Eta

Eta? Petite, blond, Ruth Ellen Richmond of Fort Scott, has received the title. When it's a queen contest the majority of beauty candidates are Eta Eta's . Lovel y, dark-haired Shirley King was chosen for our candidate for Homecoming Queen. Other ASA queens represented by various organizations are Marilyn May, Peggy Patten, Marjorie Whitehouse, Marion German, Jackie Brown, and Mary Beth Tanner . When you take a look at ASA's in chapel every Thursday you see many sisters, for we all wear white blouses with red ties at the neck. More originality may be added when our 31 pledges carry red covered notebooks with ASA in white to class. The match that lit our dynamite is Mary Del Esch, a grand president, who has done a fine job of starting us with a BANG ! Love in ASA, Orlanda Manci

THETA THETA Boston University, Boston, Massachusetts

Dear Alpha Sigma Sisters: We of Theta Theta Chapter have just returned to sc hool for 路 the year. We only have a smc.ll membership this year, but we are sure its quality will compensate for what we lack in number. I'll introduce some of our members . Marilyn Shore is a petite, pretty girl who is majoring in Elementary Education . She wants to teach pre-primary grades. Anna Ravesi, our president, is a Secondary Education major whose interest is Social Studies. Les lie Elterich is the busiest of us all. She is an Elementary Education major. She's at school on a scholarsh ip. How she works and st ill finds time for many extracurricular activities is still a mystery. Frances Di Natali is majoring in Commercial Educa tion. She works part-time, too. Priscilla Congdon is the only junior in the chapter. She is majoring in Secondary Education . I have the distinction of being the only married girl ' in this chapter. I am majoring in Elementary Education . You'll be hearing more from us. Barbara A. Deslau riers

KAPPA KAPPA Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Dear Alpha Sigmas: The Kappa Kappa's sure are a healthy group of gals . The rosy glow of summer is sti ll shin ing forth. But now , with regi st ration past, the ASA's have buckled down . Getting back into the swing of things was fun with the All-University Mi xe r to help. Freshman Ori entat ion was lots of fun too, for more路 than just the freshmen. Quite a few of the Alpha Sigmas played hostesses at the Frosh dance, to an almost entirely male class . Comments from the happy hostesses were that the freshmen get nicer every year. When onxone walks into a certain pretty gray house with an ASA on the door-knocker, she usually thinks she has gotten into a telegraph office by mistake. There's a certain loud clicking noise that sounds just lik'3could it be-yes, it is! Those eager beaver Kappa Kappa's are turning out argyle socks at a production line rate . If anybody would like to have some suggestions . for new and different color schemes, just ask Eileen

NU NU Drexel Institute of Technology., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Dear Alpha Sigs : Back again after a marvelous summer-everyone is making resolutions to work o little harder this year. We are looking forward with great expectations to the Inte rFraternity Boll and our Alpha Sig Holly Boll later this term . Sorority ,started off with a burst of enthusiasm, all of the girls were so full of sorority spirit. We have a full calendar this year which looks quite promising . All of the girls are humming tunes and concocting words for new sorority songs. At thi s rote, we can't miss having a few good entries in the contest. It almost looked like the 4th of July (sparklers flying) at our first meeting this fall with Jean Kellet and Joyce Altenburg flashing their oh-so-lovely-diamond rings ! Luc ky fellas, too, they got the nicest girls they'll find anywhere! I hope ali of the rest of you Alpha Sigs have a s much success as we of Nu Nu Chapter ore looking forward to thi s year . Until next timeLove in ASA, June Salnew

XI XI University of California at Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California Dear Alp~a Sigs : Once again we find that the days of summer hove flown and we are left with but memories of the wonderful times and experiences we have had this post summer. So many things have happened to the Xi Xi gals that I hardly know where to begin . Many of our Alpha Sigs ventured far from thi s city during the past months, but that did not prevent the group a s a whole taking trips. One evening the group assembled and invaded " New Chinatown" in downtown Los Angeles. You've never seen so much chop suey and chow mein devoured in all of your life!! A grand and glorious evening was enjoyed by all those attending, even to such an extent that they decided they must get together with other members of the sorority who were not able to be present. And, that's just what they did!! The next jaunt was to the Magic Isle in the beautiful blue Pacific· . .. the island of Santa Catalina. Two of our members were employed on the isle for the summer

41 in th e town of Aval o n. The sea s we re roug h t hat da y a nd th e group became a littl e sha ke n, but neve r let it be said that ASA girls have n ' t recei ved th e ir "sea - legs." A " Chargi e" tim e was hod by all , ta k ing in th e points of inte rest on th e is land, such a s th e beautiful Casi no ballroom whe re Le ighton Noble and Orchestra we re fur ni sh ing music for danc ing; th e bird form wh e re unu sual b irds from all ove r th e world ma y be see n; th e gloss bottom boot from whi ch th e group sow th e " Submarine Garde ns." But, alas! Te mpus fugit ! and so it d id, for all too soon the whi stle was blowing on the deck of th e steam e r, and all we re scampering up th e gangplan k of th e S. S. Catalina for th e lovely moonlight ride boc k to th e mainland . W e thought Catalina was quite a trip, but wh e n we hea r of the wonderful tim e .Lucy Colovin hod in Howii , it just doesn ' t compare. What does Nebraska ho ve that is locking in California? We ha ven't learned the an swer a s yet, but Lois Murphy should be a b le to te ll us, after her trip to that fair state. Marion Barnes find s Pe nn sy lvania a pleasant state for vacationing . Othe rs of the group decided to look our own state over a bit. Seems a s though Pot Anderson took in all of the s ights including Yosemite, Carmel and even our Capitol , Sacramento. Son Francisco, with her Golden Gate, seemed to present interest for Carolyn Kosswig . Seems soooo good to hove Maggie Jane Echols bock on campus and taking on active port in sorority affairs after having token leave of us for one semester. Not to mention having one of our grads, June Morri s, bock in the fold again. And so, on with the progress . .. The X i X i Chapter presented a ceiling projector and twenty microfilm books to the Wadsworth Hospital of Los Angeles. Now the veterans lying on their bocks in that hospital may look to the ceiling for reading enjoyment. Our Mother-Patroness, Mrs. Hunsicker, served a wonderful steak dinner following our lost business meeting ci t her home·. .We hear that after the majority of the group left, the few stragglers mode a phonograph record to be presented at the next meeting . What WILL it be?? The lost of our "Rush " parties was held at the home of Jamie Lukken. It was to be a barbecue in the backyard, but it ended up as a house party, for (now don't tell the C. of C. I told this ) . . . it rained!! That winds •up the news for thi s time; but now we ore looking forward to coming activities, the first of which will be Pledging. Thanks for allowing me to be with you . . . . Love in ASA, LaTrelle. Fredricksen

PI PI State College for Teachers, Buffalo, New York Dear Alpha Sigs : Greetings from Pi Pi! We ' ve all been buzzin' around campus since the opening of school with a thou sand and one t hings to do. We started off a successful year with a semi-formal dance at Kleinhon' s Music Hall. " September Serenade," a s our bright little Alpha Sigs called it, was a huge success with just everybody -there . Loo k ing at our girls that night, I would certainly soy they lived up to the motto, "the beautiful girls of A.S.A. " Our first supper meet ing of the year was held at Edie Wolf's apartment, we all ate ' n ote-um good ! A spaghetti dinner with all the trimmings was prepared by our own Home Ec. girls. (If it was a sample of all their cooking, it's a wonder they all aren 't wearing frat pins.)


THE PHOENIX

42 The rush season opened here October 3 , with a tea g iven by Panhellenic, so right now we're working on plans tha t sound super for an informal rush party, October 27, and a formal tea, November 9 . Congratulations go to two of our A.S.A. sweethe~rts . -Helen James (secretary) who received her exqu1s1te ring this summer, and Loi s Argy (1946 Junior. Prom Queen ) who is to be married October l 8 . Speakmg of sweethearts, one of the many we were all so happy to hear got married, was our president of last year, Nancy Dunn, who changed her name to Mrs. Don Henderson . Best of luck, Nan . Since Lois Argy is not on campus this year because of her wedding plans, we elected a new president, Winifred (Happy) O' Brian, who is certainly doing a magnificent job. Guess what U.C.L.A. sent us? A swell girl by name of Gwen Barron. Thanks, California, and we hope Gwen will enjoy our chapter as much as we enjoy having her. We saw several of the 1947 grads, now active alums, the other night. The new .teachers are: Joy Sandy, Pat McCormack, Marion Mandley (straight A ·girll , Betty Short (1947 Vice-President), Elie Dombrowski (1947 Secretary), Chuckie Miller (1947 Treasurer and M~ving-Up Day Queen, and Barb LaVigne (1947 Alpha G1rll . We are glad to say they still have that A.S.A. spirit. Love in ASA, Fannie Ertell

RHO RHO Marshall College, Huntington, West Virginia

Dear Sister Alpha Sigs : If in this letter you feel I must be boasting , forgive and believe, for as 'tonishing as it may seem, it is sure ' nuf truth . We are small this year but our spirit of industry and cooperation is one worthy to be studied by all. We have a new adviser, Florence Davis, who has always been a very active member of the alumnae here . New officers elected for this year were Jean Wright-vice-president, Ruth Carter-treasurer, Helen Gallager-registrar, and Frances Hickman-editor. Rushing season started early this year and we were only given three weeks after school began to start our rushing . Panhellenic gave the "go" signal at a tea October 12th. Since then we have been wearing our finger s to the bone and racking our brains to prepare suitable parties for the rushies. We gave our first tea at the Crystal Room in the Frederick Hotel. It wos a success with all the Alpha Sigs dressed to kill and their bestest personalities on parade. We are giving a style show as our second party tomorrow; from the plans it will be different than any ever given heretofore on the Marshall campus. Just keep your fingers crossed that the Master of Cere monies does not lose her tails. The last party will be given for only ones who wish to become Alpha Sigs; we will give them a dinner at the home of our patroness, Mrs. Beckett. We are having a party with our brothers, the Alpha Sig ma Phi's, Saturday night and ' s ince we are so busy with rushing they are making all the plans so it will probably be quite a surprise . May you, all of ou r unseen siste rs, get as much enjoyment from ou r sorority as we. An Alpha Sigma s iste r, Frances M . Hic kman

Dear Alpha Sigs: Another big year has begun for the Alpha Sigs here at good old M .S.T .C. Our informal Dude Ranch party last week held at the Country Club gave us a good start. Decorations carried out the "Dude Ranch" theme . We hung kerosene lanterns from the ceiling and covered the windows with Indian blankets and serapes. Large logs were drawn in a circle around the open fireplace. The r4shees got acquainted as they were brought to the Club on hayracks . They enjoyed square dancing and a comedy skit presented by a group of actives. little Pat Straight made quite a hit and Barbara Munson was a scream. We all think they should have been on the stage instead of slaving away here at school. After we all stuffed ourselves on barbecued ribs and all the trimmin's, we literally "pulled up a log" around the fire and sang sorority songs. Talented Ginny Ake~s composed a sorority song to the tune of the "Whiffenpoof Song ." We're all very proud of her and it is fast becoming a favorite with our chapter. M .S.T .C. is planning a gala Homecoming, November 1st, and the Alpha Sigs are already making plans for a float for the big parade, a Homecoming dinner, and grooming candidates for Homecoming queen. Formal pledge initiation was held this week at Ann Curnutt's ,lovely. home . Our fourteen charming pledges couldn't be any prouder of their pledge pins than we are of them! Be seein' you in the next Phoenix! Love in ASA, Doris Jean Hamilton

CHI CHI Ball State Teachers College, Muncie, Indiana Dear Alpha Sigs: We started off right this year by entertaining our new faculty members at a tea . Mrs. Bumb, our adviser, graciously let us use her home for the tea. The faculty members seemed to appreciate the opportunity to get acquainted with other newcomers. We enjoyed it too, no kiddin'. Now we are all working hard on our Homecoming float for this week-end, Oct. 1 0-12. We are striving for first prize with our maypole, its red and white streamers, and the slogan, "Wrap up Valpo" (Valparaiso University) . Our beautiful Alpha Sigs dancing around the maypole will surely "cinch it." After the football game we are entertaining our alums ·with the annual Homecoming banquet at the Hotel Roberts . The decorations will be centered around "The Little Red School House." The program will show dunces and geniuses in their attempt to master Readin', Ritin' , and Rithmetic with Van as the school-marm . Then back to the campus to dance to the music of Clyde Trask's orchestra . At the intermission we hope to see Junice Martin, who is ASA's candidate, crowned Homecoming queen. With the Homecoming rush over, we will really buckle down to work on our "Harvest Moon Festival," an all school mixer, to be held on October 1 8 . The plans thus far are really super and we are all looking forward to it. Love in ASA, Janet Smith

Dear Alpha Sigs: All of you have heard of Spring Cleaning, but the Psi Psis reversed the procedure from the usual month of June to September. Our house needed cleaning badly after summer and all of the girls enjoyed themselves immensely setting it to rights. On initiation ni·g ht, Tuesday, September 30, we added five new members to our ranks. Afterwards, we had a coke party in the Field House. Wednesday, October 8, the Alumnae gave a Bridge dessert at the !ilk' s Club, which several of us attended. Prizes were given for high and low scores and pie-a-la mode and cokes were served to those present. We enjoyed ourselves very much . Now we are all looking forward to "rushing", and a great year which seems to be in store for Psi Psis. Love in ASA, · Mary Lou Hardy

BETA GAMMA Northeastern State College, Tahlequah, Oklahoma Dear Alpha Sigmas: Now that rushing and pledging are over, we can all smile and breathe a sigh of relief. We changed our party plans a little this year. We carried out a "Supper Club" theme, arranging the room as if it were a large public dining room with tables reserved for ASA's and! their guests. The menus read: One serving of Happiness, Large order of Success with a Side order of Campus Popularity, One tall glass of Alpha Sig Friendship, Satisfaction a Ia mode Price : Pledging ASA We used white napkins with ASA printed in red, and' American beauty roses formed our centerpieces. The only light in the room came from our large crest, which· is a replica, of the jewelled pin. Lavelle Short, our rush captain, had charge of our entertainment, which was somewhat on the order of a Tom Brennamen breakfast program. She was interrupted" by George C. Ogle, professor-photographer, and J . W. Patterson, editor of the schpol annual, who came to take our pictures · for the yearbook. Then Elois Fry sang· "Alpha Sigma Sweetheart" as she gave . each rushee a bracelet corsage of red and white carnations. On Friday, September 19, came the pay-off, for we received eleven pledges-the cream of the crop of rushees. On this day, our patronesses gave a lovely dinner party in honor of the new ASA's who were wearing· red-and-white ribbons for the first time . On Tuesday, October 7, our girls were formally · pledged, and then they donned the traditional red-andwhite caps which they must wear each Tuesday, the local" fraternity and sorority pledge-duty day. Alpha Sigs gained two class officers and one all campus officer. Sally Hurst is the freshman class secretary; Mary Dipboye is the sophomore class student· council representative; and Jo Ann Whittenberg is secretary-treasurer of the stu9ent counci I. When Wilson Hall, the home of the majority of Northeastern girls, selected officers, three Alpha Sigs took top honors. Leona Spicer is the secretary; Clara Belle Lennox is vice-president; Lavelle Short is pres ident. (Lavelle is.

One of our returning members, Elais Fry, who went to Tul sa University last year, has the leading roll in the prese nt all-school production, "Night Must Fall," by Emlyn Williams. We have just heard that Norma Henderson, an Alpha Sig from Conway, Arkan.sas, is the new home economics teacher at Tahlequah High School. We remember Norma very definitely from our trip to Conway for Beta Mu installation services seve ral years ago, .and we are look ing forward to knowing her better. Now for the best news we've had this year . . . we ha ve a new sponsor . She is Mrs. John Paul Jones, wife of one of our music professors. She teaches music l<lerself in the College Training Schoo l. She is a very talented and attractive ~oman . We love her, and we know yo u will, too, when you get to know her. All of us are convinced that we have the two very best sponsors in the country!!! This chapter's activities should hit a new high with two such sponsors as Miss Mary Kathryn Steward and Mrs. John Paul Jones. So, it is lights out for me .. Love, Peggy Perdue

BETA DELTA Mississippi Southern College, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

Dear Alpha Sigs: Fall quarter opened at Mi ss issippi Southern with the largest enrollment in its history. The dormitories are very crowded, but we Alpha Sigs are keeping our chins up greeting everyone with a smile . It is really good to be back on the campus together working in a group and enjoying the friendlines s of ASA. We have several new officers. Helen Nelson is our new president, taking the place of Jean Bryant who became the bride of Mr. Jack Waters on August 26 , 1 94 7 . Althea Stone is our new vice-president, taking the place of Sabel Howerd who will become the bride of Mr. Bill Kettler on October 1 1, 1 94 7. J eon Patch is our new secretary, taking the place of Eddie Mae Norsewarthy who did not return to school thi s year. Ste lla Cloy is our new trea surer, taking the place of Jackie Cox. Miss Evelyn McNeese, who wa s an active Alpha Sig- during her college days here, is our new sponsor. She is now a commerce instructor. Our former sponsor, Miss Mary Tom Co lones heard the wedding bells too, and became the bride of Dr. Sponges. Our president, Helen Nel son is al so president of Panhe ll e nic which means we really have lots of work to do thi s year. Our plans are now being made for rush week which we think will be very successful. Our Mother Patroness, Mrs. Barron is honoring us with a party after our regular meeting next week. We are al so planning a wiener roast to be given soo n. We fe e l that we are going to have a good year and wi sh each of yo u the same . Love in ASA, Jeanette O'Neal

BET A EPSILON Madison College, Harrisonburg, Virginia

Dear Alpha Sig Sisters: It's the session of '47-' 48 and of activity. But fir st, let me tell you about things that happened to our girls last year. Martha Lee, al so Mi ss

Mad iso n is a beehive some of the important in the last quarter of Madi so n and our Ma -

donna of the Christmas Pageant, was maid of lfonor in the May Day celebration . The court also included H ilda Davi s, outgoing president of the Student Government Association, Joy Corkan, secretary of our own chapter, and Lois Wiley, reporter for the orchestra. Among the attendants were June Sterling , Jerry Morris, Ernestine Gillespie, Marjorie Dickie, and Betty Ja Stretchberry . Then class elections were held during those last weeks. Our girls obtained eight out of the twelve class offices available in the Junior and Senior classes. These girls will hold office during ' 47-' 48. Betty Weller was elected pres ident of the Junior Class and Barbara Wensel became the new Senior Class president. You can imagine how proud we are of these girls. Besides that, several are new members of the Honor Council. Other events of those last months were the annual Senior Breakfast and open house. Both were enjoyed by everyone. I mustn't forget to tell you about the reception for Sue Deaton when she gave a voice recital in May. Sue was the lovely talented vocalist who sang with the college orchestra. Everyone came back to school with stories of summer fun and work. Barbara Wense l worked in Texas and Mexi co with the Baptist Home Mission Board far twelve weel<.s. Of course, she gave us some interesting sidelights o n various things such a s teaching in Spanish and the pranks of the children. For Eva Ann Trumbo, YWCA president, the summer held the wonderful time she had at the University of Chicago where she attended the YWCA School for Presidents. Becky Settle, president of the International Relations Club, represented that organization at a convention at the Women's College in Greensboro, North Carolina . Two of our recent alumnae, Martha Lee and Em Leitner, also distinguished themselves this summer. Martha was Miss Madison and represented our school in the Miss Virginia Pageant held in Norfolk. Emily sang in the chorus of "The Common Glory" down at Williamsburg , Virginia . Ever since school started, we've been getting ready for our rush party. Right now , with the party on October 14, we feel that we can hardly wait for rush week to end so we'll know who our new sisters will be. The party centers around the traditional theme of "Cafe Society." With Mitzi Barkey, Dawn Brewer, Nancy Rogers and Barbara Wensel aiding the capable Jo Vaughan, our pres ident, we're sure to have a grand party. Of course, all the members are working together to make things a success. That's about all the news for now. Love in ASA, Etheline Smith

Our official rush season opened last night with a most successful fcrmal reception . The organization was terrific, I' m sure you all would have been proud of us. You see, it was only with great persuasion that Vivian Talbot agreed to carry on a s pres ident.

Alpha Sigma Alpha girl , He len Janes, our chapter chaplain, elected a s Homecoming Princess. She will reign ove r the activities this coming week-end, October 31 st and November 1st. Our campus is buzzing with activity. On November 13th, we are entertaining a representative of the World Student Service Fund, Miss Ruth O'Neil, from Stockton, California . She has recently returned from a tour of European colleges and is helping collect donations to a ssist the European students in their educational program. Another activity we are looking forward to is the Fall Formal to be held on November 22nd . This is an all college formal sponsored by the Men's Union and Women's League. This is our first Fall Formal and it promises to be o great success . Well that is all the news for now. Until next monthLove in ASA, Jean A. Manning

Two Alpha Sig Winners in the Poise Parade. Center, Emilie Baudoin; Right, Jackie Breaux. Sigs; they> are Merrie Joy Munsch and Lila Lewis. Julianne Martin has been chosen by our frat brothers as their candidate for FFA queen. The winner here will go to Kansas City to compete in the national contest. Jocelyn Schoeny is prexy for the Spanish club, Beverly Stafford swings a neat gavel for the PEM (Phys. E.) Club, and I'm presiding at Foster Hall, senior girls dorm . But it's not just the cooler weather that calls for activity; thirteen of our actives were here during the summer session and judging from their notes were busy indeed. June 26 has gone into our annals as the date of their gala swimming and watermelon party. Jackie Breaux and Emilie Baudoin walked off with two of the three victories in the annual Poise Parade. Emilie is also our current candidate for the Veteran's Club Pin-up Girl. One of our advisers, Miss Alpha Mayfield, underwent a serious operation in July. It was grand to see her back in the re.c eiving line last night. The National Student Association has extended an invitation to Southwestern to become a member. Naturally there is a great deal of interest and discussion on the campus for we feel we want to know exactly what we're gammg or m1ssmg . I would certainly welcome opinions from any of you who have seen the N.S.A. in action on your campus. Enough for now. By the time my next letter is- written to you "Good Night, dear little Rushee" will have worked its magic charm and we'll have an impressive list of pledges to give you . Wish us lusck.

Dear Alpha Sigs: Here we are back again after a very enjoyable summer. It was swell seeing all the. kids again and getting together to ' plan our activities for this semester. We're really going 路to have a full sorority schedule, what with bridge parties, cokes, dances, and a splash party, not to mention our Homecoming activities, a hayride, and rushing. Mrs. Thorpe has invited us to her house for our Founders' Day tea on November 15th, and all the Beta Thetas will be on hand November 1st for our Homecoming Breakfast at Elvira Mcintyre's . We're really looking forward to seeing all our alumnae sisters who will be back that day. Vernie Gilbert and Fran Huzarick were the lucky members of our chapter who were able to attend the initiation of Rho Chi Chapter at Wayne University which was held in September at the Dearborn Inn, Dearborn, Michigan. Now that we have such close neighbors, we'd like to have a get-together. We Beta Thetas are all rooting for Rowene Slavik, our candidate for Homecom.ing Queen . I'll be back next time with lots more Beta Theta chatter. Love in ASA, Flo McConnell

BETA IOTA Radford College, Radford, Virginia

Dear Alpha Sigs : Here at Radford we have started a new year with a bang. Because of crowded campus conditions, we have moved our sorority room to the basement of Madame Russell dormitory, as have the other sororities, and we now call our new "home" Sorority Hall . It really is much nicer than the old chapter room for it is much larger and we can certainly use the space. Other than dusting, arranging and decorating our new chapter room , we haven't gotten down to business yet, but we hope to have many activities during the fall quarter. Dot Carter has been elected our new president to take on the duties of Freda Simms, who is unable to keep this office. Mary Jane Dudley was elected treasurer to fill the office vacated by Dot Carter, and Lois Reich has taken over the duties of Alma Rector, registrar, who has transferred to R. P. I. in Richmond, Virginia .

46 Many Alpha graduates are teaching this year, among whom are Mozelle Porter, who is teaching in Bristol, Virginia; Mayme McCoy and Frances Currin, who are both teaching in Pulaski. Doris Ann Poland (better known to all of us as "Sweetie") is teaching in Martinsville, and Ruth Ann Godbey (now Mrs. Sam Scr.uggs) is teaching here in the Radford high school. Norma Jean Perry and Marianne Wright attended the installation of the new Alpha Chapter at Concord College, Concord, West Virginia, September 27. We of the Beta Iota Chapter wish to welcome our new sisters of Beta Pi Chapter at Concord College. We wish you luck in the coming year of ASA. We also wish all our other sisters the best of luck and we hope this year may prove fruitful to all. Love in ASA, Isabelle Mattesheard

School days, school days, Good old Alpna Sig days, Rushing and pledging and Homecoming, Kick-offs, and floats and who'll be queen We'll work for another year again To collect some knowledge and more frat pins It's a terrible life, but, gee, it's fun To oe back at Western again! We trapped twelve little lovelies for Beta Kappa this year. Here's how. First of all, we asked 'em to a star party with an invitation af blue, bearing a personified star, pulling a wagon. Caption: Hitch Your Wagon to an Alpha Sig Star. The living room-night club ceiling dripped with stars, the lights were low and while the guests sipped Comet Cokes and Venus Vodka, served from a wishing well bar, such stars appeared as the Singing Waitresses, The Bedtimers, dancers, vocalizers, etc. But, of course, it was really our fatal charm that won 'em. Homecoming is just three days hence and Alpha Sigs (especially the pledges) are very busy. The Homecoming Play, "Chicken Every Sunday," has five Alpha Sig stars and an Alpha Sig student director. Talent we haven't even used yet! Norma Robison Wittekeend, is our candidate for Homecoming Queen . Every good ASA has her fingers crossed til after election. Gotto crinkle crepe paper for a float.

BETA LAMBDA Arkansas State Teachers College, Conway, Arkansas

Dear Alpha Sigs: Did we ever enjoy our summer Convention last June 16th and 17th at the Sam Peck Hotel in Little Rock? I should say so. We had seven alumnae with us and twenty members back. We started off with an informal meeting at 4:00 Saturday afternoon, following which the alumnae had a meeting . We had our annual banquet at 7 :00 in the West Room of the Hotel. After that some of us went to the show and some were lucky enough to have dates. Just to let you have an idea of how much sleep we got, we had two rooms with beds stacked in them and we all slept there, that is, when we weren't throwing pillows at the person across the room. We hated to break up the week-end, because it was wonderful seeing the old and new girls all together. But

all good things must end sometime. So our convention came to a halt as everyone started packing and leaving Sunday morning . It was wonderful coming back to school this year. But I'm sorry to say, we lost our president, Almeda Cox . She is teaching Physical Ed. in Paragould, Arkansas. We elected "Winkie" Rountree, from Pine Bluff, to succeed her. I just wish you could meet her and know her as we do. She's tops with us as well as on the campus, being nominated for Scroll Beauty, Business Manager of the Echo, Tapped to Royal Rooters, Member of the Art Club, W .A.A. Writers Club and the A Cappella Choir. So you can see she's quite a gal. Never let it be said that the Alpha Sigs can't yell . Posie Cook and Betty Swain were elected cheer leaders this year to back our team . Now to get a little more serious, Wilma Adams was elected to Student Council as "Women on the Campus Representative." And I might add she is the only woman on the Council. No need to say we're proud of her. We are in full swing with our Rush Party tonight, October 8 . Next time you'll hear all about our new pledges and more buzzin' on our campus from the Alpha Sigs, so bye now. Love in ASA, Betty Freeman

BETA MU Henderson State Teachers College, Arkadelphia, Arkansas

Dear Alpha Sigs: With a new school year, new sorority year, and new officers, we are really off to a big start. Everyone seems so enthusiastic about everything .we do, you just can't help but love Alpha Sigma Alpha more every day. A big reunion was witnessed on the beautiful Henderson campus September 8, when all the oid gang got back together. Needless to say, it was a wonderful reunio.n and besides seeing old familiar faces, many new and interesting ones appeared from nowhere. Now that we have been deep in the books for fully a month, we can take our noses out of those awful old things and see what's cooking. Because the Alpha Sigs are always on top at this campus and know what's going to happen even before it happens. This was proved by the bang up job of a rush party we gave. Even the members were having so much fun. The Carnival Rush Party was given at Magnolia Manor where we entertained thirty-six rushees. Balloons were given away as favors by the clown, Jo Dean. Dot Rich did her share of work as the barker. The photograph booth was well taken care of by Mag Robertson. Our fortune teller, Lorraine Larson, last year's editor, really had some of the girls wondering . Bingo kept us trying throughout the evening and some darling prizes 路were won. As a result of this super-colossal evening, we cap-' tured the hearts of eight cute freshmen girls, and any one on H.S.T.C. campus will tell you they're tops. Needless to say, we think so too. Initiation service was held in the Home Ec. building, October 8 . Our pledges are our pride and joy and we're tickled to death to get them . So, now, for a serious word . As one of the newest chapters;-' we're trying our best to show others on our


NOVEMBER, 1947 campus what a woonderful thing Alpha Sigma Alpha is. Our officers are doing their share, with such an ambi tious leader as Phena, our own Alpha girl. And what we lock in quantity (several ASA's didn't return) we try to make up in quality. Best of luck to all of you until we meet again in the Phoenix . I'll be just bubbling over with things to tell about-for one thing the hayride we're planning for our pledges. Love in ASA, Elizabeth Day

Dear Sisters: Here we are back in the hills of Cortland . First event of the season was a gala Trunk Moving Party, to entertain the men, and to dispose of our trunks.

OPEN HOUSE AT CORTLAND Grace Kleinsang, Mellie Sudman, Peg Lavoe The freshmen girls had their opportunity to see our . house at House Opening . We were just as proud as ever 路to open the doors and conduct tours through our abode. The gals at 22 West Court are eating like queens this 路year. Our cook of last year has her own home now, and has some Alpha Sigs living with her. We hated to see her go, Of\d never expected to find another likE' her, but 路Our Mrs. Buget is turning us all into regular pigs with her meals! The enclosed pictures were taken at our Open House.

Hi there, Alpha Sigs! It's really wonderful to be getting back into the swing -of college life again, and ' specially to see all our "sisters" of A.S.A. once more . Our college has the largest enrollment in history1,543--and we're all excited about things like a new broadcasting station and a new Industrial Arts building . During the summer, there's really been some changes :made. Of course, we lost several of our members through

To prove again that Alpha Sigs hove "beauty plus brains" two of our members, "Mickie" Turk and "Corky" Burkeen (Mrs. Bob Healy) were chosen among the campus favorites at the close of last year; Reba Jo Cathey and Elenore Vannerson were elected to Kappa Delta Pi, an honorary fraternity for high achievement in scholarship. Elenore, besides all this, was selected as the outstanding student in commerce. "Le Cafe Paris" was the gathering place for Alpha Sigs and their guests at the Rush Party for upperclass girls on Thursday night, October 8 . F-rom the booths and tables decorated in French style with the menu in French (our version of French), to the lamp post bearing the sign "Sorority Street"-the atmosphere was definitely "Frenchy." Rose Dantzler, our cigarette girl, who sang "Mademoiselle," really made a hit. As a result of our party, we met loads of girls from whom to pick our pledges . In two weeks comes Homecoming with its traditional parade, which means, of .course, an Alpha Sig float. This year we're going to be in there pitching for first prize . Until next time, when we'll be waiting for all the news, Love in ASA, Aleda Farmer
