FROST FIDELITY AWARD LINDA LrMBIRD of Beta Lambda chapter has the honor to have been chosen for the 1962 Frost Fidelity Award from the list of chapter candidates. This annual award was established by Donald and Emma Frost III and is based on intangible fraternity values including loyalty and "unsung" service. Linda's devotion to her sisters and Alpha Sigma Alpha has been evident. She has served her chap. ter as president of her pledge class, song leader, membership director, and president. She has been active in fraternity affairs outside of her local chapter such as State Days, she was a delegate to the National Convention, and she was a member of the installation team for Gamma Zeta chapter. She has also been working to establish an alumnae chapter in Arkansas. With her objective outlook, Linda has the influence to ease group dissension. Her unselfishness was illustrated this year when Linda did not permit her personal grief over the death of her father to interfere with the functions of her chapter office as president. Linda was a member of the Panhellenic Judiciary Board. She participated in campus dramatic productions and helped in the promotion of such college activities as dances, teas, or sports events. She served as chairman of her church college club,


the Newman Club, and was also a member of the Scroll Staff, the college yearbook, and the Barnard Hall House Council. Her dramatic activity included roles in Glass Menagerie and As You Like It; production crew member in The Potting Shed, Riders and the Sea, Two Thieves Under One Roof, and Th e Women. She has been a diligent worker in Community Drives, such as the Heart Fund and the March of Dimes. And yet with all these activities, she maintained an above average scholarship record. Linda possesses those rare spiritual and personal qualities which bring real strength to the fraternity world of fellowship.

Can I sincerely say that I have done my very est? · Is my chapter prepared to give guidance to those sters who need it? Can my chapter be proud of its scholastic chievements of the immediate past? If the answer to each question is not YES, now ; the time to do some constructive planning for his year! During the 1961-62 school year many chapters 1rought honor to Alpha Sigma Alpha by placing irst in their college scholarship standings. Chapters l•eporting this achievement are: ALPHA BETA, >HI PHI, BETA GAMMA, BETA DELTA, .3ETA KAPPA, BETA MU, BETA RHO, and .lETA CHI.

THE Pennsylvania State University, chartered by the Pennsylvania State Legislature as The Farmer's High School in 1855, was founded by professional men, educated farmers, and state and county agricultural leaders. A faculty of four met the incoming class of 69 students in February, 1859. In the words of its charter, the institution was designed to give young men "a knowledge of the English language, grammar, geography, history, mathematics, chemistry, and such other branches of the natural and exact science as will conduce to the proper education of a farmer". This type of instruction marked a new concept of education . In May, 1862, the institution was renamed The Agricultural College of Pennsylvania, a name which recognized that its work was of collegiate level. In subsequent years, the College enlarged the scope of its instruction to include the "mechanic arts" and other subjects, began to admit women students, to increase its enrollment, and to enlarge its physical plant. In 1874 it was renamed The Pennsylvania State College, the name it was known by for the next 79 years. In 1953 its name was changed to The Pennsylvania State University, a formal recognition of what it had long since become, one of the leading universities of the country. Its nine colleges, which include the College of Agriculture, the College of Business Administration, the College of Chemistry

and Physics, the College of Education, the College of Engineering and Architecture, the College of Home Economics, the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Mineral Industries and the College of Physical Education and Athletics, now offer 47 undergraduate curriculums. Although the Graduate School was not established until 1922, graduate work had been offered as early as 1862. The original student body of 69 has grown to 22,969, the faculty of 4 to a full -time faculty of 1996. Beginning with an educationa l program which offered 40 courses, Penn State today offers 2164 undergraduate and nearly 1,000 graduate courses. The main campus, University Park, is located in the borough of State College, 40 miles from Altoona, on a tract of 4,103 acres, 3,59 1 acres of which are occupied by University farms and agricultural experiment grounds. On the remaining 512 acres are located the golf course, a thletic fields, and the a pproximately 180 principal buildings, including classroom and office buildings, laboratories, athletic buildings, and residence halls, which comprise the physica l structure of the University Park campus. The University, whose prime purpose has a lways been to serve the people and the interests of the Commonwealth and the Nation, is accredited by the Middle States Association and is a member of the Association of American Universities.

1962 ONLY to a comparatively few persons in a given period of time is opened an opportunity to be a "Founder" of an organization, a movement, a force for good. Behind these rare persons there is a vision and a purpose, and linked to these conditions is the force of timeliness. As dedicated people work together to bring the vision and purpose to reality that others may share, timeliness I fuses the bond. That the founders of Alpha Sigma Alpha were rare people is truly evident as we regard what they brought into being sixty-one years ago. With its present alumnae members numbering many thousand, generations later, the underlying purpose that they believed inAspire, Seek, Attain-and the present program for carrying this purpose out is tangible evidence in the present day that they founded well. We salute them, as well as we honor those who took on the continuing responsibility for leadership as it came from the hands of the five great women who brought Alpha Sigma Alpha into being.




MARY E. BLACKSTONE National President


IN MEMORIAM It is with mixed emotions that we observe Founders' Day, 1962, for while honoring and remembering the five outstanding women who laid the foundation for the national organization that Alpha Sigma Alpha has become, we are at the same time saddened by the death during the past year of Calva Watson Wootton, one of these five women. However, as we reflect upon and mourn the loss of this foresighted woman, we cannot but be thankful that her high ideals and standards will be preserved and will continue to flourish in the organization that she helped to found.

SATURDAY, April 14, was the date of the first ,tate Day held for the Alpha Sigma Alpha chap_rs in Colorado and the surrounding states. The ollege chapters invited were Beta Beta of Greeley, ~olorado; Beta Chi of Tempe, Arizona; and Beta ~ta of Dickinson, North Dakota; and the hosesses were the girls from Sigma Sigma chapter ,f Gunnison, Colorado. Representatives from Beta 3eta and Sigma Sigma attended the meetings at Nestern State College, Gunnison, and the two 路hapters that were unable to send representatives ent interesting and helpful material to be used. Members of the Denver and Gunnison Alumnae :hapters also attended. Fun began on the evening of April 13, when :he girls from Beta Beta arrived. Sigma Sigma members served coffee and everyone talked and ~ot to know one another. The next morning breakfast was served by the Gunnison Alumnae, after which the girls formed different groups for discussion. The various groups. discussed housing and finance, voting, rushing and pledging, and leadership. These discussion groups lasted until noon. A banquet was held in the afternoon with guest peakers being Dr. S. June Smith, National Philanthropic Adviser; Mrs. Loretta Hamrick, Sigma Sigma Adviser; and Dean D. H . Cummins of Western State College. The afternoon was concluded with the announcement that Beta Beta chapter will be the hostess for the 1963 Colorado State Day which will be held at Colorado State College in Greeley. .-JAN SHELDON ~~

THE Illinois State Day was held on the campus of Northern Illinois University on May 12. Due to stormy weather, the day's activities were rescheduled and held in one building instead of the several places on campus on which we had planned. Our Beta Kappa sisters arrived Friday night and enjoyed their stay in the Neptune dormitory. Others who weathered the storm were members of the Chicago, North, South and West Suburban, Waukegan and Milwaukee alumnae chapters. We were honored by the presence of Mrs. W. Lawson Blackstone and Mrs. Howard Hall. It was wonderful and inspiring to have 99 Alpha Sigs together! We held our coffee hour in the morning, the business meeting, and then had our luncheon in the Neptune Dining Room. Our Mardi Gras theme was carried out in the table decorations, place cards, programs and name tags. The luncheon was followed by a fashion show at which eight Beta Rhos tempted us with bathing suits, spartswear, and beautiful cocktail dresses. Our favors, which were telephone-address .books donated by the Illinois Bell Telephone Company, were in use immediately as we all had met many new and wonderful sisters. It was decided that, in the future, chapter reports would be sent to the hostess chapter before State Day so that copies could be distributed at the meeting. This will allow more time for small discussion groups. We met in eight small groups and all benefited, for many new ideas on college and alumnae chapter relationships, alumnae membership, rush party themes and money-making projects were discussed. Miss Ruth Westlund, assistant Dean of Women at Northern Illinois, spoke to us on the "Meaning of Sorority." Everyone enjoyed and, I am sure, benefited from her address. The day ended with sorority songs and warm good-byes. Beta Rho's co-chairmen were Eileen DeMichaels and Sue Narten. The committee members 路 were Sue Immel, Sandy Jarzombek, Bev Walden, and Helga Winker.-EILEEN DEMICHAELS BP

Yellow and green spring flower motifs completed decorations and were also carried out in programs done by Mrs. Duisterhof, Mrs. David Hogoboom XX, and Mrs. Edwin Lawrence Bw. Following luncheon a roll call of chapter reports were given, and highlighting our day was the presentation of the 1961 Frost "Fidelity Award to Charlotte Soules Neal Bw.

OKLAHOMA OKLAHOMA State Day was wonderful! Held at the YWCA on April 14 in Bartlesville, we were privileged to honor two National Officers;. Mr~. George J. Malone, Jr., National Membership DIrector, from Tulsa; and Miss Mary K. Reiff, National Magazine Chairman, from Kansas City, Missouri. Registration was scheduled at ten o'clock, with coffee and doughnuts served until eleven. (We hope the members from Northeastern State College's Beta Gamma chapter have forgiven their President for getting them out an hour too soon.) The business session started with a discussion on sorority aims and purposes led by the two national officers, which was followed by a question and answer period. Reports were given from the other chapters in the state, and Mrs. W. 0. Whethington rr, whose husband had brought her all the way from Nash, Oklahoma, told of several from her part of the state who were unable to

come for the occasion. The Muskogee Alumnae chapter was not represented in person but sent a letter inviting Oklahoma Alpha Sigs to meet there next year. At luncheon the Beta Gamma chapter entertained the group. Following the luncheon Mr. R . M. Williams, attorney for Phillips Petroleum, was the guest speaker with "Ideologies" as his subject. All eight members of the Bartlesville Alumnae chapter who worked faithfully and enjoyed preparing for the occasion were Georgia Clayton and Beryl Fisher, registration; Ida Keefer, reservations; Shirley Neal and Flora Sears, decorations; and Jean Mattox and Karen York, program; with Lois Beers as General Chairman. We also brag about being 100% life members.- Lors BEERS Br

PENNSYLVANIA THE Bux-Mont Alumnae chapter was host for the Pennsylvania State Day held on April 7 in Hershey. The theme was "To find dominant beauty in art, literature, nature, and friendship."

Miss Nyce, who won the Alpha Sigma Alpha Award of Eminence, has worked in India for thirteen years in the field of Education. In the morning there were four interesting discussion groups. The two for the actives were "Ways of Raising Money" with Claire Ruffuge McKinley as chairman, and "Panhellenic Cooperation" with Betty Krider as chairman. The Alumnae groups had Marith Potter lead the discussion "How can we interest members in joining the Alumnae Chapters," and Rose Pelligrino ably

She closed with a reading of the poem, " \1\Tords To Live By," which was given at the National Convention at Mackinac Island in 1961. The girls from Beta Phi, Gamma Beta and Gamma Epsilon chapters provided some light entertainment for the occasion, following which reports from each chapter and from the morning buzz sessions were given. A gift was then presented on behalf of the National Council of Alpha Sigma Alpha to Miss Frieda Phillips for her work as National State Day Chairman. Everyone then adjourned to the lounge where Gamma Epsilon conducted initiation. Mrs. Dorothy Maas Townsend, Melrose Park, Illinois, and Mrs. Leah W aid Anderson, Eau Clair, Wisconsin, were initiated into the Milwaukee Alumnae chapter. Our day closed with a coke and social hour at which we talked eagerly about the 1963 State Day at Stevens Point.

It ha bee n i month 1ww since I left the nit d tales and returned to my homecountry, Th e therlands aft er a 'y ear's stttd'y in your country. Although t he distan ce in miles is ve ry large, I find I feel close to )'OU since I wa so fort una te as to find a job teaching m entally retarded children. I ve alwa)'S had inpiration in this direction and being an A~ now I do e en like it better. nlcss you pecifically ask for it, I will leave th e organization of this special education the description of our school building, and the chool organization undiscussed. I ' d rather tell you a little about my children and their studi s. ur group consists of nine boys and seven gids from seven through thirteen years of age and with IQ's from fifty to eighty. Mot of them are supposed to be at s cond grade level, but since there are several differences in study level for various subjects this is not always tru e. One girl of eleven, for example, reads anything she can get, but writes and figures like a first grader. This wide va·riety makes group work ver)' hm·d u ually even impossible. I have to individualize as much as pos ible, so )'ou can imagin e that it asks for a lot of energy to kee p every child at work! My kids are quite noisy in their behavior, and find it awfully hard to concentrate on their work. Thi m eans that the teacher has to go around continuously to stimulate them, and to give th em just that little push that keeps them going. A good organization in your clas room is ve ry important, otherwi e you will not be able to kee p the bu iness going. I usually pre pare their e ercis books for the next day in order that they can at least start. For extra help to the lowest learners is very little tim e, I found, since you are too busy all day. ometimes, however a student of a T eacher's College comes for student t aching, so she or he can take the class and the teacher can do some remedial work w ith the children who n ee d it.

t the m om nt I have three <problem" children: Arie, a boy of eleven year , who

is ocially unadapted. H e live in his own world, and forget s what happens around him. ft en he talk or laughs aloud or walks around. He is a darling boy, but is quite a di traction for th e others ometim s. I do not mind him though, since previously h has gon e to school for three years and not aid a word! Th en Gerrie a sw eet girl of el v n. Sh e works ve ry hard, but is undescribably dumb. he doe not und r land anything!. Only after two months of explanati.ou sh <gets th e pictur ' and th en sh e do es not forg et it anymore. With figuring she is still in the preparatory phase . Finally little v n-year-old Maartje. Sh e cant do anything yet, not even count to twenty nor write her own nam e. Furth rmore she has a considerable amount of thoughts in h r head ry day, and the y necessarily have to be spoken out, espe-


cially at times that she is supposed to keep her little mouth shut! Ho wever, it is o hard to get mad at her because she is such a darling little girl. One thing we do as a group is singing. Every week we study a new song, by daily rehearsals of about ten minutes. I first teach th em the words, and later on the m elody, since m emorizing the text is the hardest part. I have not taken competely new songs yet, since I found that the songs they ((knew" were not sung very well. They usuallJ路 knew the first two lines, and hummed the others. We're changing that now, and study the whole stanza. Th e children choose the song fo r every new week. In the beginning they did not like it very well, but they like it to be able to sing the songs completely, so they are finding now that the used m ethod helps th em , and they have ac cepted it. W ell, I better stop now. You see, I could not possibly cover everything. In case you would like to get so m e more information about this special education, you are welcome to ask m e. With love in UA, AGNES B. J. Cvsouw" Agnes joined Beta Eta chapter a year ago when she was studying at Dickinson State College. are all proud to have her as our sister. Her complete address is:

COLLEGE CHAPTERS Alpha Longwood College Farmville, Virginia

LAsT SPRING saw the members of Alpha busy as the activities of the school year were completed. A spaghetti supper was held in the room in April. On May 7, five February pledges were initiated. The picnic in honor of our seniors was full of warm spirits as all gathered to enjoy themselves and think back on wonderful, inspiring memories. In June, Alpha members h eaded for Virginia Beach to end the school year in a ·relaxing style and start out the summer in refreshing spirits. A2:A's members will be ac tive in campus affairs this year. Sherrill Hudlow and Alice White are members of Alpha Kappa Gamma, national leadership fraternity. Chandler Story is a sophomore representative to Student Government. Alice White is again the president of her class, the class of '63 ; Evelyn Gray is the vice-president of the junior class. Pam Gustafson will be a leader during the "'r ating" of the freshmen. The senior class members of Alpha will serve as orientation leaders, and the junior members will serve as assistant leaders. This fits into our fall rush plans as we hope to use the opportunities to become better acquainted with freshmen. The Alphas are looking forward to the fall rush season. Preliminary plans were made last Spring, and they were worked on more throughout the summer. The members returned to Longwood September 13 to begin a workshop period before classes started. -ANN HuBBARD

Alpha Alpha Miami University Oxford, Ohio MIAMI UNIVERSITY's Spring Greek Week brought a grand climax to Alpha Alpha chapter's activities this year. We were so proud of four of our girls who came in third in the Delta Chi Tricycle Race, and of our chariot rider who placed second with the Phi Gamma Deltas in the Lambda Chi Alpha Chariot Race. Jane Swartsberg did a great job in representing AA in the Beauty Contest with her presentation of Eloise on Campus. Greek Week ended with the Inter-Fraternity Ball and an inspection by Mrs. Harold Brown, our National Vice-President. During Mrs. Brown's visit, Alpha Alphas had a mock initiation ceremony, various conferences, and a tea in Mrs. Brown's honor. She was also escorted to the Inter-Fraternity Ball by our past president, Sondra Binkley, and her pinmate. In May, Alpha Alpha members worked on their philanthropic' project of helping a teacher of retarded children in Hamilton, Ohio. We made different signs, games, puzzles, and picture collections for the children. When the project was finished, we all were a little closer to our sisters and had that good feeling that comes from helping others. Mothers' Day Weekend was a busy time for both mothers and members. We started off the weekend on Saturday with a banquet honoring the mothers, followed

NEWS LETTERS by th e Mother Patroness Ceremony and the Mothers' Club meeting in the afternoon. Afterward, the mothers went to hear the Panhellenic and Inter-Fraternity Sing. The next morning, a breakfast was served in the suite. During the weekend , the Dayton Area Alumnae Chapter gave th ei r Outstanding Junior Award to this year's president, Sondra Binkley. The recipient of this award is chosen by secret ballot of all of Alpha Alpha's members, with the results kept secret until Mothers' Day. At a joint pledge-member meeting we awarded our annual Amy Swisher Award to the Outstanding Freshman Woman, Miss Joan Stoltz. The recipient of this award is picked by a committee of our advisers and officers as th e outstanding freshm a n woman on campus who is not an Alpha Sig. The year was ended with a Senior Breakfast sponsored by the Junior Class. Busy with plans for this fall's preschool rush, we're now all looking forward to another exciting year with A2:A!-CAROL KLEFFMAN

This was an . eventful day which will not be forgotten by any ?ne o.f us as it was the first State Day for the ch apters m. th1s area. There is hope that this first State Day wlil not be the last as it proved to be a worthwhile project in all respects. On the sports front the chapter made a r ecord of one win and ~ne tie. in two games played, proving that teamwork IS an rmportant part of sorority life. The week of May 6 through May 13 was full of excitement for each member as we prepared for a dance and a banquet. The Alpha Spring Formal with its Mardi Gras atmosphere, was h eld on May Joanne Olsen was crowned as queen of the dance. Our Mothers' Day Banquet was held on May 13.

Beth Williams, one of our most active sisters, graduated. We were sorry to see her leave, but we wish her luck as she begins a new career. May was our month of catching up on all the little things, and tying the ends together. The new officers took over their new duties; and our Alumnae Newsletter came off the presses and went on its way to our friends all over the nation. But, although graduation is a proud and sad moment, we are excited about our summer plans and the coming school year, we wish happiness and health to all of our sisters.-KAREN STAV

Central Michigan University Mt. Pleasant, Michigan jANUARY is a month of hard work, resolutions, and new horizons. The Beta Thetas began the second semester by resolving to make the year a tremendous success, and we did. Spring Rush loomed up on the calendar, but we were prepared with plans and new ideas for our three rush parties. Our new adviser, Miss Beverly Arment, added new enthusiasm 路towards rush by giving us new ideas for the parties. The reward for our work was a tremendous pledge class of twenty-one. This was the largest Beta Theta has ever had, and we are really proud of them. On March 3~ we sponsored our annual Snow Sculpturing Contest. This year the theme was "Fantasy Land." The wea:ther was against us, however, and so the entries were limited to a huge dragon built by the brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon. Later in the semester, a pizza party was held with the brothers of Theta Chi, and this was followed a week later by a mixer with the brothers of Sigma Tau Gamma. The Beta Thetas have had ample opportunity to practice the latest craze on campus, the twist. Traditional with Beta Thetas is our practice of eating together twice a month. At this time we meet, wearing red and white, to enjoy an added hour or two over a good meal. Beta Thetas have a wonderful opportunity to work for our philanthropic project. The Michigan State Home and Training School is located in Mount Pleasant, and each Beta Theta spends two hours a semester working at the home. A group of members meets at the home every week. This year Greek Week at Central Michigan found the Beta Thetas working like beavers to prepare for the Interfraternity Sing. Our entries were the songs, "Out of My Dreams" and " In the Still of the Ni~ht .." Our many hours of practice were reward~d. by w1~mng first place in the contest. We also part1c1pated m all the Greek Week activities, the jump-rope contest, walk-athon, pie-eating contest, bowling tournament, and the swim meet. At the annual Dinner Dance, Beta Thetas treated their Alpha Sigma Sweethearts to a delicious Ember's dinner and enjoyed the dance which followed. Houseparty is 路the event the Beta Thetas most look forward to. This Spring, as in the past, we went to Chimney Corners on Crystal Lake. For a weekend .we forgot final exams and just concentrated on haVIng loads of fun together. All of the Beta Thetas are active in campus act1v1t1es and many have received university honors. Two of our

University of Southwestern Louisiana Lafayette, Louisiana THIS SPRING was truly a hopping time for the Beta Zetas. Our successful February rush opened an active spring semester. As the semester began, we started working feverishly on a campus-wide dance of which the fall pledges were in charge. We altered travel posters and advertising posters to carry out the Hawaiian theme of the Hula Hop. Some of the posters were quite original and eyecatching, for example, one poster was a beautiful hula girl whose hips actually swiveled. In preparation for the dance, we held a slumber party at the camp of Dianna Melancon. We all enjoyed a night of working, planning, and playing. The Hula Hop was held in May and was a big success. We wore brightly printed sarongs while the student center was decorated with fish nets and g littering fish. Our parents enjoyed the bi-annual Parent-Daughter banquet held this past April. Our guest speaker was Mrs. Kenneth B. Hait, past adviser of Beta Zeta and the present Panhellenic Council adviser. Amanda Higgs received the Outstanding Pledge of the Year award. Nina Claire Breaux received the Outstanding Member of the Year award. Frances Kurzweg received the scholastic award for having the highest average in her pledge class. Following the Easter holidays, we participated in the first Greek Week h eld on our campus. As May breezed in, we had our annual dinner-dance. Climaxing this gala occasion was the announcement that Gary "Steve" Stephens was our Beta Z eta Sweetheart. Steve, to compensate for his absence from the dinnerdance, gave us a watermelon party in Girard Park near the end of May. To honor our late spring initiate and to bid formal farewell to the seniors, we entertained them at a surprise banquet following initiation.-ELAINE M. TREGRE

Beta Nu Murray State College Murray, Kentucky BETA Nu's first Spring rush party was informal and it was held in our sorority room. The party was "Cafe La Beta Nu," which emphasized a French theme. All of the girls came dressed in their French costumes. We had various skits, songs, and dances, including a can-can dance. We also had a French fashion show with the Beta Nus modeling the latest French creations. Our second Spring rush party was formal, and it was held ~t the. home of one of our members, Kay Roberts, who lives m Murray. As the rushees arrived they were presented with a flower. As a result of th~se two parties, we pledged eight wonderful girls. We were proud to have Mrs. W. Lawson Blackstone visit our chapter in February for our chapter inspection. Her visit was certainly an inspiration to our chapter. During her visit, a banquet was held at the Triangle resturant in Murray. Also, an open house was held ~ her honor in our sorority room. Beta Nus were very active in sports on campus during the Spring. We participated in the basketball and softball games. Beta Nus were also very active in the annual Derby Day events held at Murray. We are very proud to have Marjorie Ann Rhea elected president of the Panhellenic Council for the coming year. She has already taken over her duties, and she has begun a new program of rushing, which will be in effect at Murray in September. Murray State's Spring Carnival, which was held May 4, found the Beta Nus presenting a minstrel skit. We had the biggest time of the year at a local filling station where our car wash was held May 5. Beta Nus presented the last open dance of the year at Murray. The Bermuda Blast was an informal dance, and everybody came dressed in their bermuda shorts.

Beta Phi Stout State College Menomonie, Wisconsin THE MONTH of January found the Beta Phis at Stout State College busy with plans for the corning months. Gretchen Strohbusch was our candidate for the Mardi Gras Dance held on February 1. Second semester rush was very important to us since it was the first time Freshman rush was held on our campus. We found it successful, especially after accepting our twelve new pledges . During this span of time, we had National Inspection, Winter Carnival, and our annually sponsored Sadie Hawkins week. Winter Carnival found us taking first place in the Tug-0-War contest again and consolation prize in the car races. We ended Sadie Hawkins week on February 17 with a dance. It was fun for all and a great success. Stunt Night was another victory for us: we won first prize once again in the most beautiful category. A few days later we were honored at a Pink Tea by our new pledges. On March 17, five girls went down to Milwaukee to represent our chapter at State Day. Later that week, four of our girls were elected to the Student Senate Association. They were Sharon Wyss, Ginger Troutman, J o Ann Bowe, and Sandra Carlson. We honored our mothers at a mother-daughter luncheon on Saturday afternoon of Parents' Weekend. Later in the afternoon we honored our fathers at a Tea. We had eighteen mothers initiated as Mother P atronesses. April was more or less a month of rest for us, since the previous months had kept us so active. This month we enjoyed our pledges and their activities. They were initiated on April 15. May found us preparing for our annual Dinner Dance. "Pink Champagne" was this year's theme and was carried out to a simple but lovely effect. A senior, Karen Moore, was elected "Sweetheart" of the dance. On Thursday, May 24, the underclassmen honored the graduating seniors at a Senior Hum. Among the collegiate honors on Stout State campus are the Medallion Awards. These awards are the highest honor given to senior Stout students by the student body. This year the Beta Phis had three such girls that were honored. They were Shirley Grahm, Margaret Lutey, and Mary Schultz. Yes, the Beta Phis have had a busy semester, but all the work and excitement brought us so close that we honestly enjoyed every minute of it. We have our fingers crossed 路in hopes that next year will be as successful as this one was.-MARY LYNN KocH

Beta Chi Arizona State University Tempe, Arizona BETA CHI ended the 1961-62 year by winning first place in scholarship. Beta Chi members were presented with a plaque awarded for the highest scholarship among the eleven sororities on campus. This is the first time that Beta Chi has received this award. On May 12, the members held their annual Sweetheart Spring Formal. Linda Ban was crowned Beta Chi Sweetheart. The award is given to an outstanding junior or senior. After the formal, a swimming party was held at the Emerald Pool. A brunch honoring seniors was held on May 28 at the Executive House. Each graduating senior was presented with a Phoenix pin. Receiving individual honors were Cary Walters, who graduated with high distinction and was tapped by Phi Kappa Phi, national scholastic honorary, and Margie Holstine, who was tapped into Natani, junior women's honorary, and was installed as Panhellenic President. In order to form a strong Mothers' Club, a tea was given for mothers and alums. It was held at the home of Mrs. Padillas, one of our advisers, on May 29. Many mothers and alums attended, including one mother from as far away as Indiana. Beta Chi will have a strong Mothers' Club this coming year. We are looking forward to rush now. Our Rush Chairman, Linda Ban, has already picked out three of the outfits we will wear. Rush begins September 7. We are looking forward to a happy and rewarding year.-LINDA CARNOWSKI

Beta P si Westt>rn M ich igan U niversity Kalamazoo, Michigan ALL THE Beta Psis on the W.M.U. campus are eagerly looking forward to another year as rewarding and funfilled as 1961-62 . Looking back on last year's many activities and accomplishments we see Jo Polakowski and Dave Peebles being honored as Campus Couple; and Delta Sigma Phi fraternity choosing Joan Shoesmith as their Carnation Queen. Sue Dean was busy in her capacity of assistant director of the student written, produced, and directed, "Fantasy." The Beta Psis were pleased to have Marlene Dykstra, Sue Modderman, and Cathy Overholt attend the Arista-sponsored Sophomore Honor Chocolate. And what Beta Psi could possibly forget the wonderful evening spent at 路the Panhellenic Banquet and Ball. At this time, we presented fifteen pledges to the W.M.U. campus. Snow Carnival weekend found the Beta Psis actively participating. We won two trophies: second place for the Sled Race and second place for our pledges' Pie Throwing Booth. On March 10 Alpha Sigs from all over the state gathered at Western Michigan University for their annual Michigan State Day. Mrs. Harold Brown, National Vice President, spoke to the group, after which we broke into small buzz groups. All of us felt that we had spent a satisfying and enriching day. Beta Psis enjoyed a fine spring rush period. We gained six enthusiastic pledges which completed our pledge class for the 1961 -62 season . Kay Krenke, one of our spring

As one of the final events of the school year, Gamma Alpha sponsored a boat trip on the Missouri River. During this trip, the Alpha Sigs and their dates presented gifts to Dr. Mary Ellen Parquet, moderator, and her fiance, Dr. Frederick Herx, who will be married May 26. Gamma Alpha has enjoyed an active year and is looking forward to the next one with even greater enthusiasm and expectations.-DONI STEINKAMP

I Gamma Beta I Wisconsin State College Stevens Point, Wisconsin A DASH of humor, a friendly chat, and a light snack highlighted the round-robin coke party which was held Sunday, February 25, in the Union Lounge. The party, sponsored by inter-sorority, had the theme of "February Birthdays" and marked the beginning of the spring rush season. "Speak-easy Spree" was the theme for the first rush party held on March 8. Members and rushees were dressed in costumes representing the 1920s. A floor show with appropriate songs, and even a jazz band of Alpha Sigs provided the entertainment. Jean Waukee was mistress of ceremonies for the occasion. Rushees found themselves amidst clouds and glittering stars as they entered a world of "Dreams" which was the theme for the second rush party on March 14. Entertainment was provided, refreshments were served, and the rushees were introduced by their "big sisters." On Saturday, March 17, members of Gamma Beta attended Wisconsin State Day at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. It was an enjoyable day as we became acquainted with sisters from UW-M and from Stout State College. During the first week in April, Gamma Beta served the community by helping with the cancer drive. Six girls volunteered to be "Maid for a Day" to the person who pledged the largest contribution to the Cancer Crusade for that day. It was a good experience and our efforts were well received. Formal initiation was held on Sunday afternoon, May 6. Thirteen girls were received as members. A banquet on Sunday evening at the Hot Fish Shop climaxed the pledge season. A picnic in honor of the senior girls was held on Tuesday, May 15, the last meeting of the school year. An Alpha Sigma Alpha compact was given to each girl. Shirley Ojala acted as mistress of ceremonies. Gifts were also given to our patronesses and advisers. A special "Thanks" was given to Miss Marji Jekabsons for her warm and friendly assistance while acting as our adviser during the past few years. May 14 was Awards Day on campus. Gamma Beta is proud of the following members for their fine achievements: Dottie Doran, who received the Edith and Kent Cutnow Award; Beulah Poulter, who received a studen t government award for leadership; Jean Droeger, who was awarded the Bessie May Allen Award; Ann Triureed, the Alpha Sigma Alpha Frost Fidelity Award nominee ; Joan Dahl, the Alpha Sigma Alpha Elizabeth Bird Small Award nominee; and Patricia Van Saut, who received a music award. On the Dean's Honor List were seniors Joan Dahl, Joan Spredo, and Barbara Wilmot. That takes care of the news for the last semester. We of Gamma Beta had an active year and are really looking forward to the future as we plan another prosperous and enthusiastic year.-GLORIA KERL

Gamma Delta Queens College Flushing, New York GAMMA D ELTA started this semester right in the swing of things. Our successful spring racket, the Dixieland Jamboree, was given in conjunction with Alpha Lambda Alpha fraternity and began our social season. Ru&hing began early, and for weeks we were in a hub-bub of activity making preparations. Our first rush was the "Winter Rose Rush," which was a getacquainted tea. The second was the "Crimson Capers" which is our traditional vaudeville show. This rush gives the sisters a chance to show off their talent to the rushees. The highlight of the evening was a medley of songs by Joan Breglio who played the lead in "Brigadoon," produced at the Queens College Theatre. During her performance in the show, Joan brought the house down with her rendition of "It's Almost like Being in Love." At the rush, franks and salad were served, and each girl got a bag of popcorn to eat during the show, as well as a souvenir program. For our third rush we tried a new theme, "Polynesian Paradise," and it was one of the most beautiful rushes Gamma Delta ever had. We d ecorated with a mural, palm trees, fish nets, tropical plants and flowers, and straw mats. The sisters wore sarongs in many beautiful colors. Each rushee received a welcome lei as she entered, and she dined on fresh shrimp and fresh fruit dished out in pineapple halves, and drank punch from coconut shells. Polynesian music provided a pleasant background. For entertainment, we had the rushees enter into a limbo contest. Everyone soon joined in. The rush was a success judging from the wonderful time had by all. We closed the rushing season with a buffet dinner during which the sisters put on a fashion show, depicting Alpha Sigma through the year. The fashions ran from a ski outfit suitable for our winter ski week-end to a flapper costume which could be worn at our annual Freudian Fling. On the Monday following the last rush, we learned that we had received ten wonderful pledges, bringing Gamma Delta's membership to a total of forty-seven active members. Pledge season was an exciting time during which our pledges marched in costume in the Carnival parade. Our pledges made us very proud by placing second in the Greek Letter Day competition, with their skit satirizing the John Birch Society. The sorority celebrated afterwards.

As Dorothy's sister lives in Hawaii, she was able to prepare a winter "luau" for us. Then at our March meeting, at Mary Weinberg Hohe's BK, we made Easter baskets for a cottage at Dixon State School. On April 14 we entertained several deans of colleges downtown in Chicago who were attending the Dean's Convention, including the Dean from Pennsylvania State University where our new college chapter was installed May 5. We were also happy to have National officers, Mary Blackstone, Betty Hall, Helen Corey, Marie Brown, and past national officer, Louise Stewart with us, plus the actives from Northern Illinois University at DeKalb.

LONGISLAND,NEWYORK WE HAVE been having deep thinking buzz seSSlons to find a project that a small group such as ours can do well. We found that the homes for the aged and infirm in our area are well taken care of at Christmas and Easter, but forgotten the rest of t>he year. We feel we can contribute in a small way to make the days brighter for these senior citizens by making tray favors for the less celebrated holidays such as Washington's Birthday, St. Patrick's Day, July 4th, etc. Our chairman for this project is Nancy Daly B;?;. At the August meeting at the home of Karen Enterlene Kerr BT, we had a report on the homes in our area by Barbara Hodgkins Smith BO, and selected the one we felt we could best help. Our July meeting was a theatre party arranged by Kathleen McCann O ' Shea. We all enjoyed Walter Pidgeon appearing at our summer theatre. We wish to welcome a new sister to our group, Gwendolyn Falk Boudreaux BZ.-KAREN E NTE RLENE KERR

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN THE MILWAUKEE Alumnae chapter had a very busy and worthwhile Spring. One of our biggest accomplishments was our philanthropic project. We established a fund for the School for R esearch on Mental R etardation at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. The school was very grateful for the contribution, and we were proud that we were able to make it. Another important event took place. The Milwaukee Alumnae chapter expanded into two separate chapters because of the large and growing membership in the alumnae group. So in the future you will be reading 路 news from both chapters . The original chapter is now the Alpha chapter, and the new group is the Beta chapter. An executive board h as been elected to h elp coordinate the work and play of the two chapters. Wisconsin State Day was another event which held the spotlight in our activities. Mrs. William J elenchick rE and her capable ,committee planned a very worthwhile and enjoyable day for the Wisconsin Alpha Sigs and for some of our Illinois sisters. Alpha and Beta chapters both are looking forward to the fall when it is time to begin another year of Alpha Sig work and fun.-CAROL DRENNAN CLELAND

NORTHERN VIRGINIA THE HIGHLIGHTS of the Spring for Northern Virginia alums has been an intense look at and participation in one small but very significant segment of the work being done with mentally retarded children. L ast year, at the suggestion of Pat McDaniel Walochik Ar, we made a small contribution to Mrs. Esther Thomas, who operates Holly Hall, a home for mentally retarded children in Vienna, Virginia. This March we were very fortunat e to have Mrs. Thomas speak to us at our monthly meeting. She explained to us that she has ten children, ranging in age from infants to teenagers, living in her home, in addition to her own family. She and her family care for the children and she takes the school-aged ones to a school for mentally retarded children in Alexandria, where she is a teacher. Again we made a contribution toward the maintenance of her home. I n April, out-going President Pat Greene Long AA installed officers for the new year. A picnic with our husbands or dates on June 15 closed a very busy year. -LvNDA LEWIS McCONNELL

SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA OuR final meeting concluded with .the installation of officers for the coming year. In the darkened living room at the home of Violet Ranallo Neuman, the lighted candles and our beautiful installation ritual again helped us all to renew our pledge to Alpha Sigma Alpha. Ou~: main business was discussion of our Philanthropic Project, which is .the Hope School for Retarded Children. Some of our members again manned booths at the rummage sale held at the school, while others donated many rummage items. At the conclusion of our evening meeting, our hostess served a most delicious dessert and coffee. Jerry Rundell Doyle and Mary Ludu Simon were very busy workers at the annual San Bernardino Panhellenic Luncheon and Fashion Show in April. This affair is always one of the largest and most successful of such affairs in the community. A handsome profit was realized for scholarships for girls from high schools and junior colleges in the community. Mary Ludu Simon

is the newly elected Parliamentarian on the new Panhellenic Executive Board. She also served on the Panhellenic Scholarship Committee the past year and spent tv.:o bu~y weeks in the Month of May, when the committee mterviewed some fifty girls from the local high schools and junior colleges. Gladys Ludlam Anderson and her husband Willard who is a Professor in Business Administration at Valle; c.ollege, have also been very busy with interviewing high school graduates for scholarships to UCLA. Gladys is also very active in the San Bernardino Valley College Faculty Wives group. Our Violet Ranallo is very active in American Association of University Women. We are looking forward to several pleasant summer activities. We are planning a husbands and wives dinner dance at the Norton Air Force Base Officers' Club in July our hosts to be Jerry Rundell Doyle and he; husband, Jack. In August we shall enjoy the hospitality of Gladys Ludlam Anderson and husband, Willard, at a swim party and steak barbecue.-MARY Luou SIMON

SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY IN PLACE of our February meeting, the Southern New J ersey alumnae held a theater party in Philadelphia.

After the play, a midnight supper was enjoyed by the group at Kenney's Suburban House in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Our March meeting was held at the home of Ruth Stewart Kramer KK where we worked on booklets for the retarded children's class at Zane-North School in Collingswood. These are do-it-yourself booklets to aid the children in learning to do things for themselves, such as tying shoe laces, buttoning buttons, fastening belts, closing hooks and eyes, etc. In April and May, the meetings were held in the homes of Noel Wirth and Wanda Fitzpatrick, respectively, at which times we continued work on the booklets which we are sure will be of great benefit to the retarded children. Our final meeting will be a steak-fry which is to be held in June at the summer home of Edna Hutchinson. We are planning to bring our husbands as our guests.ELEANOR COMER DILKS
