JANUARY, 1948 regarding new stude nts on tha t campus. Your note to th e Nati onal Re gi strar o r Chapte r Advi se r will be res pected and honore d . Bei ng Alumnoe, we must re al ize that our recomme ndations are just that- recomme ndati ons. The actual choice is made by the coll ege chapte r and we abide by the ir dec isions. Thus we see that we Alumnae do still have an active part in rushing though ou r co llege days are passed . Our onl y hope of new blood in the Alumnae is through the colleges so remember that every new girl we suggest now (who is accepted) will be a new Alumna very shortly .
RUSHING NEVER ENDS From the Halls of Montezuma to Alpha Sigma's Gunnison chapter comes exmarine Peg Creedon . Her laughing Irish eyes, and vivacious personality will be welcome additions to Sigma Sigma . Wouldn 't you ~like to receive one of those miniature mammy dolls-they contain bids for Gamma Clio's Minstrel Party. It will be complete with a black-face show 'n laughing endmen . " A Backwards Party"-was enjoyed by all the Concord rushees . They just loved those A~A banks which they took home as their favors . Flash-Psi Psi 's Gypsy Inn enticed fifteen new pledges. The rushees were kidnapped and spirited away to the Inn (usually known as the A~A house) . Fortunes by Mrs. Robinson, a gypsy dance by Dot McGraw, and the singing of our Sweetheart Song added to the gaiety. El Rancho A~A entertained the Alpha Gamma rushees-peasant costumes-conga lines-and traditional South of the Border chile con carne plus plenty of Alpha Gam hospitality made for a wonderful party. Rushees who were lucky enough to strike the pinate were showered with confetti , balloons and hand-made earrings. A strolling viol in player added to the festivities . Thirteen isn't an unlucky number-at least Alpha Beta's are sure their thirteen new pledges aren 't going to need four-leaf clovers to assure the ir success. They were welcomed
