PENNSYL VAlU A The nerr yea: opened very pleasantly for both 11 Indiana" and Alpha Gamm~. In sp~te of the glorious vacations at home every member of the chapter was glad to lie bo.clc at school . Every one who was ~ere last term returned, and much to our delight the membership ~ae ~ncreased by the addition of Sara Campbell who was not vdth during the Fall Term o~nng to severe illness. ' · Altho A~pha Gamma has been rushing right along ever since seilool opened ~n September, still · the r:inter Term is the rushing s~ason par.exce~lence, for one has become acquainted with the new gl._rls and l.s qu~ te certain just whom one vrant~. Unfortunately the o her groups on the eampuo happen to like the same girls as ourselves prett~ generally, so we have to be right on the job every minute. Our ~~st at present contains ten rushees, all of them charming. The openl.ng party, given by Clara Ferguson and Lovell R.ehbun, was a buffet luncheon. Their color scheme of yellow and white was most eff€"'cti vely and artistically carried out. The immense calce was .froste c1 in vrhi te and carried our Sorority letters in yellow. The first big school aff . . . :.Lr on the calendar will be the Junior Prom, which is scheduled for February 17 t h . a lot of our girls are planning to attend. Just about the same time the Chapter will give a Valentine Party, which will be a rathor elaborate affair ac~.ording to present plans. This is only one of many rushing stt:mts that 2.re to be given, but it will be eiven by the Chapter, whereas the usual parties for the rushees ar e planned and given by two girls in the Chapter 1 thus dividing the res ponsibility and yet ?lacing it equally on all shoulf.l_ ers. The idea has vmrlced very we ll in Alpha Gamma. . The Basket Ball season is on and ha~ resulted thus far in victoriea for "Indiana" . \ ie always V.J:elcome this vrintor s ~) ort as it helps cons!lerably in our rushing, gi ving us opportunities to be with the new girls without any care for · en ~ ertainment or ~ny special planning. Our dancing teacher has added a nevr feature to our interests here by starting an aesthetic dancing class. This is quit e e. novel idea for 11 Indiana", as heretofore we have been taught only he modern dances. J~ll of u s would hav ~ been glad to enroll in the class but membershi ') vras by selection, s only our best dancers we r e talren: A nuiTiber or"" our pledges -rfere fer ·cunat e enough to be invited· . Alpha Gamma h a s be en particularly fortunate this yeat in having o.' great nurobor of its alumn~e back f or visits.

COLORADO th Ba'T~r. ~rom the holidays, and oh, how glad vre were to see one ano er aga1n. It took us quite four days to settle down to work in r.oll( 1: fo: there was so much t~ talk over and to plan . our house fared beaut1fully, for the Christm~s box was brtmful of attractive t~ing~. Ther? were salad forks, spoons and other silver engraved w~th H.s.~., l1nen, trays, dainty guest towea~ and a lovely Wallace Nutting p~ctu:e a~1 ~tg ?ther things, the picture bang a gift from the Fort Coll1ns .il.SSOClation . Some of the gifts have not come in yet~ but they are promised, and so we are lo k ng for every day to be Chr~stmas.

Teachers College · h~s been acquiri!lg r e') ently a great deal of class and school spir ~. t, due in large measure to the fact that the first issue of our collego magazine, the CRUCIBLE, has appeare d , It has added a quality to the school that han not been present before, or that we were not aware existed. You can imagine what a difference it has made in student life, if you can imagine what Alpha Sigma. Alpha woUld be without its PHOENIX. All the sororities have been doing some charity work. This is not anything exa~tly new for us, only this year· under the direction of Hiss Green, our very capable Chapter Advi·s er, it has taken on a slightly different form. There is a fund. that is used · to meet the critical needs of the training school and uollege. outBide of the instructors, ours was the first organization to subcribe to the fund. Rushing has taken a good deal of our time lately. Our parties so far have .been rather simple affairs,-line parties, kensingtons and taffy pulls. We have sent out three bids and are now waiting for the girls to get permission from home. In the case of two of the girls, who ar e by the way sisters, our bid was chos en in preference to two others, which was certainly not uncomp limentary to Beta Be ta. On February lOth we shall hold an nfromal dance to which men will be invited . The other groups have been giving formals, but we thought that we should like to see what could be done with an ~nexpensive affair. We believe that we shall have a·very nuch better time than at an elaborate formal affair. Of course, everything is going to be just a s nice as we can make j.t, and it is go ... ing to be large, for we are planning for about seventy-five guests, including alumnae, the patronesses and the ir husbands, the Dean o~ Women, together with the representatives from t·he four other sororlties and their escorts . It is something of a problem for the soreties here to hold dances, for our school is not so f o rtunatoly located as some others, such as IC irksvill e , f or instance 1 where the r A is a college for men in the same tovm . Here t he r e are never enough men to go around, . and it means that most of our e scorts have to bE? imported. J~y chapt er that has had tha t probl em t o face knows what it means . Of course, we have the jolliest kindo of good times together, just wo girls, but there is a limit to a certain ldnd of enterto.:i.nm.ent, so easily pos s ible wher e men c an be invited in for dancing. Beta Beta has had two delightful surprises . Agnes Sandine, one of onr alum1.a e was at the house for a week-end, and r_11r. Towne, a po.troness, presented the Chapter with a. five pound box of candy . •\.d:a A. Baker, Hist orian.


Alpha Beta's social af fairs are never many during tho middlE~ of a Ql:ra:ter, ancl, as um·.a.l , we have been so quiet that we have li ttl 7 0 f _a soc~a l natu r e. to report.

We had planned to gi ,r Callye the first degr ee at t h e Axis Club on the afternoon of Saturday, January 27th , follo w"d by a dance, but this affair was upset y our sudden receip t of the news of the death of hlrs. Gilpatric ~ . the mother of one of our patroness f3 s . Mrs. C.O.Gardner, and the grc.tndmother of one of our members , Marion Gardner Blackwell, State Sflcre:bllry of Missouri . Our sympathy for Hrs. Gardner and Marion is relieved by the t hought that M:rs. Gilpatriclcis suffering are now endE' . Life about tho campus has been running smoo thly s i n c e the holidays, ~ and the · girls · are studying now, in order to be more free for the numerous 'hikes' and parties that Spring will bring in ita train. February is aJ.ways so full of great day s that ther e is a good deal of social activity both in the t own and the scho ol. 1~ great many teas and rece 1Jti -:ns among the townspeople are being given at the new Sojourners' Club Buildi ~g. This beautiful new h ome is being freely used by it s member~ for their social functions , and many pretty social affair s have a lrcacly boon gi ven ther e. On J anu ... ary 25th, ~e and Tri Sig~ a were fortunate er-ouGh to be invited to a toa given by fottv ladie s of the Club .

On the ~;ar:th of January, the v.rol l ...l<:nown central to, Tillie I~oenen, was heard at a concert in our auditorium. The next prominent per sonage to appear before us is Hiss Ida Tarbell. Our woekly school paper, the INDEX, publishes each Quarter a list of the students making a record of "E"--our highest grade-in four subjects requiring preparation. Out of nineteen students attaining that record last Quarter Alpha Beta is proud to -have had five,-.Apne Brewington, Ruby' Vlells, Franl;ie Vlestfall, F loy Violfenburger and Dale Zeller. Cupid has been casting his darts very successfully at the .AsJ·~s of Alpha Beta. We have lost in consequence from our chapter Frankie Westfall, vmo bee• ne on January 3rd Mrs . Olin ~~. Moore of Pe!"!ry, \[o·. Eula Hull is wearing a new diamond and frankly admits the charge we make ·against her.

Another matter that has been of' deep interest to Al pha J1lpha js the p0ssibility of a new chapter in Ohio . Our state has three stato universities, a condition of affairs that is very different from that found in otper states. Thes e three institutions 7 in thA order of foundation, are Ohio University at Athens, Miami University at Oxford, and Ohio State University a t C~lumbu s. The firs t two haVA N~rmal 0ollegn~ connected with them, so ooth should have been J.s a matter of fact th~ gond fields for Pedagogical sororities . two fields, tho attrac t ing about the same class of girls, were not EQUALLY good as fields for Alpha . Sigma Alpha . Tri Sigma estab lished its Miami Chapter in 1912, and almost i mmedi ately afterwards its Athens Chapter . A~pha Sigma Alpha, how'?ver; has not been vTilling to enter Athens until recently, because t he Congress Sororities established at Athens, Pi Beta Phi 7 Alpha Gamma Delta 7 Alpha Xi Delta and Chi Omega ha been permitt ed ttt draw from the Normal Co llege . It quite natmnally followed that rushees would much prefer membership in older and larger sororities t l:an in Tri Sigma, which has managed to keep up an existenc e at Athens, but which could not compete with o rganizationG 1-: ng on the c ampus, one of them dati:og as f-ar back as 1009. ...Upha Sigma Alpi1a did not wish t o entor the university under this kind of handicap . 1 ~thin a short time, however ~ conditions have been greatly changed. The Congress Sororities on the ground have been forbidden to draw from. the Normal College, and so there are quite a few particularly fine girls that a r e not as yet in any sorority. Alpha Alpha girls h s,v e a number of friends, mostly from their home tovms, who ~re in Chi Oillega and Alpha Xi Delta, and these Athens girls are urgj_ng us to c.onsidor the field . One of our members, Ruth Donnelly, had hoped to be able to look ove r the situation enrout home for the Holidays, but unfortunat e ly the two vac a tions corresp:· nded exactly, and so there was no opportunity f or -investigation. our semester vacation has r a ther interf e red with our pl ans to keep in touch with Athens, as i~ ha~ with the Athen s gi rls'de s ir 0 to hel. p us, but after the new s~mes ver ~s under . w~y a~ both p~a<j c s, it is to be hoped the,t vre c e.n g;ve y~u.more def1n1te 1nformat7?!1· 1\.t t ~lA pr e sent moment matters SvEmd ~.Jus way,--seve:r'a l attra c-c"Lv e cirl:!l at Athens h :.J:iTe ?ecome interested_ and hav~ t z.,l K;cl the mu. tt o: c·v ,:; ":- v~j th their rean, who fayors the. ~?-ea.. ~Te sh~ . . . ho pe by C>UJ next :.otter to snnd you much more defl.n~te ~nforma t~on .
