BETA PSI ZETA BECOMES GAMMA MU

INSTALLATION CEREMONY MOST THRILLING EVENT

The members of Beta Psi Zeta, a local sorority at Adrian College, attained their long-awaited goal of becoming the Gamma Mu chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha on March 6, 1965. The event-filled weekend began with a getacquainted party on Friday evening. Due to snowy weather, it took a while for all of the guests to arrive. After everyone had arrived, we noted that there were alumnae from South Bend and Ft. Wayne, Indiana, and collegiates from Chi Chi at Ball State Univers ity present. Mrs. Harold C. Brown, at ional Extension Director, and Miss Mary C. Goeke, ationa l President, also attended.

Following an officers' workshop conducted by M iss Goeke and Mrs. Brown, the most thrilling event of the week took place. Twelve gi rls were in itiated into Alpha Sigma Alpha. Mrs. Brown and Miss Goeke, the installation team, p lus sponsors from South Bend, Toledo, and Ft. Wayne alu mnae chapters and Chi Chi, Beta Psi, and Alp ha Alpha collegiate chapters, conducted the beautifu l ceremony in which each girl took the oath and p ledged her loyalty to Alpha Sigma Alpha. Following luncheon in the Tobias Room, Gamma Mu chapter was installed as an official part of Alpha Sigma Alpha. All guests were ~hen invited to the gymnasium to view the girls' mtramural basketball game between the Alpha Sigs and the Jack-Purcells.

A message from our President

ON FOUNDERS' DAY As November fifteenth approaches, we once again turn our thoughts to that day, sixty-four years ago, when five young women, bound by common ideals, spiritually, physically, intellectually and socially, joined themselves together in the organization of Alpha Sigma Alpha, and thus became the founding members of the sorority to which we now belong. As is usual in reflecting upon the organization that has evolved from the foundation laid by those five young women, we think of the growth of Alpha Sigma Alpha numerically, both chapter-wise and member-wise; financially; and of the relative physical attributes of the sorority now as opposed to those of the sorority at the time of its founding. Measuring Alpha Sigma Alpha by these standards most certainly does result in the inescapable conclusion that our sorority has indeed prospered during the past sixty-four years. No one can deny that the strides made in these phases of sorority growth are a vivid testimonial to the foresight of our five founders in providing a base upon which these types of growth could flourish. However in today's world of facts and figures often too much emphasis is placed upon statistics, with the result that individual development and worth is often overlooked. This is particularly unfortunate in the area of Greek letter societies because the personal element in this type of organization is the strongest single factor that should be weighed in determining its merits. Our founding sisters would be proud of their successors in trust in Alpha Sigma Alpha. The high standards for membership that were requi ite sixty-four years ago have been carefully and zealously maintained so that today's young collegiate members embody all of the fine qualities, high ideals and out tanding characteristics that were evident in our founding members. The young women in our college chapters today are holding fast to our traditional spiritual and moral belief , and because they are the type of young women who are naturally repected and admired on their campu es, they are succeeding in refuting the ugly image of merican young womanhood that is so often being thrust upon the public by the free thinking, free living young tudent who are publicized 4

because of their fanaticisms. Our collegiate sisters realize the importance of good scholarship, and they are known on their campuses for the efforts that they are making to maintain a high scholastic average. In today's 'live and let live' society, where many people no longer feel the obligation of helping their neighbor, our college chapter members, as well as their alumnae sisters, are admired for their philanthropic work. The Alpha Sigma Alpha sisters are the cultured, poised, well-mannered, selfassured, personable young women on the college campuses today, and, as such, are making their imprint on our society. Our five founders would also be proud of the alumnae members of the sorority, and of the vital role that they are playing in their communities today. Relying upon the qualities of leadership and organizational ability that were nourished during their collegiate days in Alpha Sigma Alpha, our alumnae sisters are active in civic organizations with goals of making our world a better place in which to live. Again, because of their personalities, these women are often the guiding force in various causes, and, as such, are capable of influencing many others toward their way of thinking. These same alumnae, recognizing the value of their membership in Alpha Sigma Alpha during their college days, are working whole-heartedly with the college chapters to see that other young women are permitted the same benefits of sorority membership. Many alumnae are donating long hours to the management and preservation of the sorority system, solely because they want the young women of today to have the same opportunities and advantages of sorority membership. In commemorating this Founders' Day Anniversary, we should look to the quality of individual membership of Alpha Sigma lpha, and this should be the determining factor in evaluating the worth of our sorority today. When this is done we can see even more clearly the importance of the basis of our foundation, and the true significance of our continuing ideal ; and a this becomes apparent, it is only natural that we pause in salute once again to our five founder who made all of this possible.

ALA STATE DAYS ALABAMA-MISSISSIPPI-LOUISIANA Beta Zeta chapter served as hostess for the very successful and inspiring A-MISS-LOU State Day held in New Orleans, Louisiana, on April 3. The theme for the day was "Give Full Measure." Representatives from Psi Psi, Beta Delta, and Beta Zeta chapters met with alumnae chapters from Hattiesburg and Jackson, Mississippi, New Orleans, Lafayetle, and Central Louisiana at the Jung Hotel. The morning was taken up with an informal coffee hour and a general business meeting. All of the chapters present gave their yearly repor~s. The spirit of sisterhood was evident as the different chapter members mixed together to enjoy a wonderful meal, after which the college chapters entertained the alums with skits and songs.

Warm good-byes mingled ith a little sadness ended the A-Miss-Lou Day. Lifelong friendships were made and all agreed that they would return to their respective chapters and GIVE FULL MEASURE.-JOHNNIE WATSON

ILLINOIS The 14th Annual Illinois State Day was held on Saturday, April 24, 1965, at the Spinning Wheel Inn in Hinsdale, Illinois. The Chicago Alumnae chapter was the hostess group.

Following the luncheon an award was made to group 2 of the Detroit alumnae association for largest percentage of alums present other than hostess chapter. A special remembrance was also given to Mrs. J. Towner Smith AA for her many years of "giving full measure." Dr. Paul Maier, Dean of Lutheran Students at Western and also a history professor, was the speaker. He spoke on the fraternity system in a growing college community. Jn the afternoon college and alum discussion groups exchanged fruitfu l ideas. Alums concentrated on ideas to expand state day attendance in 1966 and named a chairman for the March 26 event. College gals especially benefited from the out-state view of special guests, Chi Chi chapter from Ball State . A traditional friendship circle closed the day.

He informed us of services we could render to retarded in community classes and to retarded living in state institutions. He stated there were twenty-two hundred retarded in the Columbus State School and that good used clothing was one of the greatest needs. The Alpha Alpha girls presented a clever skit entitled "The Future of Alpha Alpha at Miami University." This was followed by a Rededication Service.

THE 1965 AWARD WINNERS WILMA WILSON SHARP AWARD Helen Frame Snyder 0 0 is the worthy recipient of the 1965 Wilma Wilson Sharp award. Helen's life has been one of volunteer services to children and community as well as serving the Akron alumnae chapter t~e~ty-four years. Her services have not been hm1ted to local levels but have reached state and national levels as well. A charter member of the Akron alumnae chapter Helen has been active since the chapter's origination date of May 19, 1941. She has held every office in the chapter-some more than on~e -and has been an active member in Panhellemc since Alpha Sigma Alpha became active in it. As philanthropic chairman for twelve years, Helen has given parties to retarded school ~lasses, donated classroom equipment, planned dnves to obtain Christmas gifts for the retarded in the Columbus State School, collected and delivered boxes of clothing for the same institution and helped raise funds to give $25.00 annually to th_e building fund for The Summit County CounCil for the Mentally Retarded. The two years Akron was hostess for Ohio State Day, she served in the capacity of secretary plus the difficult job of planning chairman in 1965. Admirable would be one word to describe Helen's work with the mentally retarded. She was one of the founders of the Akron Council for Retarded Chi ldren and organized and started the first class for the retarded in Akron. Today there are twenty-six such classes. For sixteen years Helen has worked tirelessly for the Summit County Council for Retarded Children serving in various capacities such as chairman of benefit card parties, room-mother chairman, memori al committee chairman and membership committee chairman. She has served for years on the executive board and the board of trustees of the Council and was State convention secretary when Akron was hostess to the Ohio Association for Retarded Children. The Fa irlawn United Church of Christ is indeed fortunate in having Helen as one of its member . She not only belongs to the Women's Fellow hip and Rachael Guild, but teaches Sunday chool and ings in the church choir. Her contribution to community affair has been notable. mong other , Helen has served 10

\\ HELEN J. FRAME SNYDER on the Recreation Committee of the United Community Council and has worked as a solicitor and team captain for the United Fund. She is a charter member of the Copley Club, a service club whose membership is made up of those who have been officers in PTA. She has been active in PTA ever since her children entered school. Offices held have been numerous, including those of secretary, vir;:e-president and president. Helen has been a delegate to the state PTA conventions and in 1965 was awarded a Stale L ife Membership. For several years she has been, and still is, one of the afternoon teachers in Fairlawn Pre-school. She is an active member of the Akron Pre-school Association, the Midwestern Association for the Education of Young Children, and the National Association for the Education of Young Children . As active as Helen has been in helping others, she has nevertheless found time to enjoy her family and herself. She is married to Leonard Snyder, assistant principal of Hower Vocational High School. They have three sons: Leonard Jr. , 23; Donald, 18, a sophomore at Ohio State University; and Dale, 14, a sophomore at Copley High. Helen laughingly states, "to keep my four men filled with food is quite a job in itself!" She enjoys playing bridge, likes to plant and grow flowers, and loves to travel. Helen's life has truly been one of "giving full measure." For her the Wilma Wilson Sharp award is a well deserved honor. THE PHOENIX

Elected pre ident of her pledge class, Cheli grew in leadership and in her love for A'LA as she kept the spirits high of both sisters and pledges. ot only was she a good listener and counselor when her pledge sisters had problems, but she was also able to accept constructive advice and criticism from her older sisters. She worked hard to see that the pledge projects were well organized and carried out, helping to write the pledge songs and putting in many extra hours painting scenery and sewing costumes for the Campus Revue. All rehearsals were attended with continued eagerness rather than complaints, and she participated with equal enthusiasm in the Songfest. To create a closer sisterhood between the pledges and the members, Cheli also organized a retreat. Her pledgeship has been recorded concisely and can be used as a reference in future years of the proceedings at pledge meetings. Her support of the chapter's philanthropic projects included taking a class of educable mentally retarded ch ildren swimming, attending parties at the Chauncey Rose Home for the aged, and aiding teen-agers at the Vigo County Juvenile Center. On campus she participated in the Dolphin Swimming Club (a precision swimming group), Women's Glee Club, and Indiana State University Orchestra. Because of her grade average,

MICHELLE ANNE HECK

Cheli was invited to the Women's Resideuce Hall Scholarship Banquet and to be a membet of Pamarista Tea for prospective members, highest honor a woman may receive at the University. With all her activities, she had held two jobs to earn the money for her education and sorority membership. Her personal efforts to achieve the ideals of A'LA during pledgeship and the r.otentialleadership already shown are clear indications of future accomplishments.

FROST FIDELITY AWARD The Frost Fidelity Award winner for 1965 is a girl of high character, Susan Low of Gamma Theta. Her personality is reflected in her warm smile, and on Syracuse University campus she has always been a credit to Alpha Sigma Alpha with her charm and poise in social situations. Offices held in AL.A have included assistant social chairman, second vice president, and membership director. Sue will be greatly missed next year since she has devoted so much of her time to the chapter and its activities. Her personal wants have been set aside in her service, and her enthusiasm has stirred other members to even greater pride in their sorority. She was always available to discuss problems with any girl, and often was on the phone convincing some confused rushee of the values of fraternity life. An example of her unselfishness and loyalty to Gamma Theta was evident when she offered to leave her roommates in the sorority house to give a sister returning after a semester's absence a place to stay. By error no one knew of her pending return, and while many spoke of their concern, two days had passed without any action to solve the dilemma. Sue's offer opened the way for a satisfactory arrangement without hard feelings: She was active in campus organizations with her membership in the Syracuse Outing Club, Newman Club, Women's Athletic Association, and as secretary of the Physical Education

SUSAN LOW Major's Club. Her community service was at the Elmcrest Home for Underprivileged Children, or as chairman of such projects as the Christmas party for needy children at Salvation Army Headquarters. Her outgoing manner attracts people wherever she goes. Embarrassed by thank yous for any service she renders, she has unified and inspired groups by her presence. We are happy to announce this national recognition of her devotion to Alpha Sigma Alpha.

MAI(ING MARRIAGE WORI( BY FREDA

With freedom of choice in marriage partners, a new goal in marriage relationships has come into being-individual happiness. It's a very difficult thing to describe; it means different things to each of us. The emphasis now is on psychological and personality factors, on companionship and equality between husband and wife. Women have greater freedom in our democratic American family than one finds anywhere else in the world. Marriage partners choose one another and are intensely dependent upon each other, since satisfying relationships and understanding between the partners is the expected result if the marriage is to be happy. But freedom of choice calls for responsibility to choose wisely and to try to make your marriage a success. Thus, it takes more love and understanding to make a success of marriage today because we expect more of marriage. The degree of happiness in marriage depends upon the ratio between what one expects and what one experiences. Happy marriages don't "just happen;" you have to work for the success of your marriage.

should be able to be dependent upon the other for emotional support in times of stress. The husband gives his wife the security she needs when she is pregnant, for example, by his consideration and understanding of her concerns and worries. The husband, too, should be able to relax and be helpless when the situation warrants it (if he loses his job or meets some unexpected crises) without feeling any loss of selfesteem. 2. Don't criticize or nag unduly lest self-respect be diminished and your happiness together be in jeopardy. Instead of criticism, express your ideas as suggestions. Each of us resents criticism because in our childhood it was associated with hostility. Nagging, too, merely causes a reaction of irritation and never achieves the desired goal.

I. Be sensitive to your husband's or wife's feelings . and moods. Consider his or her needs before your own. Hopefully each of the marital partners is able to function capably most of the time, but each

3. Don't be afraid your husband no longer loves you when he flares up occasionally and releases tension in sharp words when the cause lies elsewhere. Bob usually liked to relax a bit when he came home before having dinner and said, "What's the rush?" if dinner was waiting. But recently Janet had been at a meeting and was rushing to get things started for dinner, feeling a little guilty because she hadn't realized it was so late. When Bob came in, she called, "Dinner will be a little late tonight, dear." "I should think you could have dinner ready when I get home," he responded.

"Making Marriage Work," by Dr. Freda S. Kehm, is one of a series of articles prepared for sorority magazines by " Operation Brass Tacks," a project of the National Panhellenic Ed~tors' Conference. Permission to reprint the article or any portion thereof must be obtained from the "Operation Brass Tacks" committee.

Members of the committee are Margaret Knights Hultsch, Alpha Phi, chairman; Mary Margaret Kern Garrard, Kappa Alpha Theta; Isabel Hatton Simmons, Kappa Kappa Gamma; and Dorothy Davis Stuck, Pi Beta Phi. Address: National Panhellenic Editors' Conference, 1718 East Broadway, Columbia, Missouri 65201.

What are some guide lines one can follow to try to achieve happiness in marriage?

FALL 1965

23


Janet was sure Bob couldn't really love her if he could look so angry and snap at her like that. But in reality, it had been a bad day. A sale he had thought secure hadn't materialized, and the sales manager had seemed to think it was his fault. He couldn't release his tension in his presence, and his thoughts were filled with tension over the lack of understanding of his efforts. 4. Try to nurture a sense of humor. Good humor shows in the faces of those who have this great asset. They show understanding and they make us feel happy. Remember the bright or funny things that occur during your day away from each other and enjoy them together. 5. Look for reasons behind your behavior and try to understand the motivations of your husband. In this way, understanding may add to the essential satisfactions that each of you finds in your union. Remember that each of you brought to your marriage from your early childhood different backgrounds, different personalities, beliefs, familiar ways of doing things that have become a part of you. As Dr. Lawrence K. Frank says, "We are what we are because we've been what we've been." You could not, therefore, expect to agree about everything. Adjustments will be necessary, not so;so by each of you , but a willingness to go more than half way. Flexibility and the ability to adjust are among the most important factors in achieving a good marriage. 6. Talk to your husband about the many things that h appen or in which you are interested , big or small, deep or light, and listen with attentive and sympathetic interest, thus keeping alive the essential habit of communication between you. Happiness in marriage is enh anced by sharing idea and ideals. 7. Don't try to impose your will on your mate nor deny interests other than your own. Your mate is not your property but is a person quite apart from you . s you learn to give and give in at times and to discuss decisions before they are made, you enh ance the health of your marri age. 8. Keep th e dignity of your marri age inviola te. Never demean its sacredness in public or private. Tot only does it hurt the feelings of the marriage p artner, but it i embarrassing to the fri ends who ar e ex po ed to our p er onal dispute.

24

9. Pray together in your place of worship, for love is blessed in the aura of godliness. 10. Uphold truth in your marriage. Never practice deceit, whatever its motives. Respect for each other is as vital as love to assure life-long happiness together. But sometimes even marriages that start out well develop problems. When couples marry, they are in love, they believe their marriage will bring them only happiness; they meet each other's emotional needs. They feel happy and comfortable together. There is a BALANCE in their interpersonal relationships. When they start having marital problems something has happened to that balance; to their relationship. This might have been affected by internal or external pressures. Usually, each individual prefers to think he isn't responsible, and it must have been something outside of himself that caused the rift. Counseling helps individuals become aware of their own personal involvements. Sometimes couples then can work out their problems and re-establish the balance in their marital relationships. Here are some danger signals. First, lack of communication. Married couples must be able to talk things over even when they don't agree. Each of us needs someone to whom she can express hostility, be furious and say so without having the feeling that she does not love her husband and is not loved in return. No two persons' emotional needs are so completely matched that there is no frustration, and whenever there is frustration, there is hostility. Indifference is possible when you're not in lovebut not when love exists. Others talk at each other, not to each other. Those of you who have heard Leonard Bernstein's opera, "Trouble in Tahiti," remember what he calls the "screaming silence." In the opera, there is a Greek chorus which explains wha t each of the marriage partners means to say. Unfortunately, in life there is no such chorus, and misunderstandings, not discussed and settled, can mushroom into serious problems. Lack of communication between the husband and wife sometimes brings about over-involvement by one or the other with their children; or one or the other or both become too involved with social life, filling time with meaningless activities. Some couples seem unable to enjoy being together, such as Mr. and irs. Jerold. Mrs. Jerold, the mother of two young children felt very depressed. Her husband came home tired, wa di interested in going out and generally wa glued to the TV set. He was the THE PHOENIX


silent, self-sufficient type. "It wasn't at all like it had been when we were in college; he just seemed to live for the time we could be together then," said the wife, who came for counseling help. The husband came, also, because he wanted to save their marriage. This wife was helped to accept herself as a more mature figure. The man was helped to recognize that a woman who has to give so much to young children and has no adult company during the day needs more emotional satisfaction, more emotional support than he was giving. He faced up to the problems involved in fatherhood. Another signal is found where a wife has vague feelings that she is not needed. The woman who feels that all of her husband's time and interest is centered in his business, so that he has no need of her. When they were first married they discussed all his business affairs, but now he seems to act as if she were not able to understand them. The third signal is that of a power struggle. The person wants to be in control so that he can have his or her dependent needs met, but he or she still wants to be boss. There is increased disagreement as to details of homemaking, of management of money, of the children, or of management of their leisure time. The fourth signal shows where there is increased resentment on the part of the wife regarding her husband's work or on the part of the husband regarding management of the home. The last signal of danger ahead that I shall mention is that of feeling let down with experiences, when reality doesn't meet one's expectations and the person is bored most of the time. The psychologically healthy individual is not bored but is able to be alone. The feeling of being shut out or feeling he or she will not be understood is illustrated by the case of the Perkens. Mrs. 路Per ken came to the agency during a period of distress involving personal discouragement and the possibility of divorce after 20 years of fairly successful married life. Both she and her husband were forcing one another to the brink of divorce, altho neither really wanted such a solution. Their teen-age son and daughter were discouraged and somewhat confused. During the course of her interviews, the source of Mrs. Perken's discouragement became clearer. She felt inadequate and used and abused by her family. She had felt this way during her early adolescence, when her mother died suddenly and she was left to assume much of the family FALL 1965

responsibility. During this important period of her life, she saw her father as a cold, strict, but reliable man. She was angry with him because she was not able to experience the indulgence her young siblings received. Altho it came slowly,. Mrs. Perken was able to recognize that her father was quite dependent upon her and that she did have a close, satisfactory relationship to him, as demonstrated in later life when he relied upon her rather than her siblings. Her interviews provided a source of dependency and acceptance. As she gained confidence, she was able to express some of her wishes and feelings directly. Much to her surprise, her husband responded with greater interest and consideration. The most important factor in achieving a happy marriage would seem to be the degree of emotional maturity of the marital partners. Dr. William Menninger has said that the most important factor in personal happiness and effectiveness is the ability to get along well with other people. It depends upon whether you can love more than you can hate. What is your capacity to love? The love I mean is that which the Greeks called agape. That love means considering the wishes, the desires, the goals of your husband (or wife) before your own, rejoicing in his or her accomplishments, sharing his trials as well as his triumphs. Today more than ever before American youths need the examples of successful marriages which educated men and women can give them. We who believe in family life as the basic relationship in our culture must by our example illustrate its value. We echo the words of the poet, William Cowper: "What is there in the vale of life Half so delightful as a wife, When friendship, love, and peace combine To stamp the marriage-bond divine?"

T his year has indeed been a busy, but meaningful, one for the Alphas. We are eagerly anticipating an even more successful year to begin with our return to school in the falL-PAT PEREGOY

Longwood College Farmville, Virginia With the arrival of spring, Alpha chapter participated in what we feel was a most successful informal spring rush, through which we captivated enthusiastic and hardworking pledges. On April 7 we joined the eight other sororities on the Longwood campus for our annual Panhellenic Banquet. After an inspiring speech on "The R esponsibilities P laced Upon Sororities Today," Alpha's first vice president, Sarah Wohlford, was inducted as the A'2.A representative to the Panhellenic Council. April also brought with it an exciting and fun -filled event when the pledge class presented their pledge party. The theme was "Shipwrecked Alphas," and invitations came in the form of notes in bottles. The members were taken to the college's cabin at Longwood Estate for the big event which was climaxed by the presentation of walnut A'2.A plaques for each member, as well as for our adviser, and a check for ninety dollars to be used in furnishing the proposed new chapter room. The pledges raised this money by holding a car wash. Alpha's spring activities ginia State Day which was hard work went into the worth it as we had a great our wonderful sisters.

were highlighted by the Virheld here at Longwood. Much preparations, but it was well weekend and enjoyed meeting

In May the Alpha chapter girls held their annual spring picnic to honor the seniors. We all piled into the college truck for a "hay ride" (minus the hay!) and headed to a nearby lake. After a picnic dinner, our president, Linda Bosserman, presented gifts to each of the seniors and a special gift to our retiring president, Pam Gustafson. Also presented was Alpha's Best P ledge award which went to Pat Peregoy. After much fun and laughter, we reluctantly boarded the truck and returned to campus to ready ourselves for the coming exams. We are very proud of Sarah Wohlford and Pam Kerber who were chosen as contestants in the Miss Longwood Pageant. · Alpha chapter will have many leaders on the Longwood campus next year. Judy Cundiff will serve as president of House Council and vice president of Alpha Kappa Gamma, the national honorary leadership fraternity. Pat Meekins has been elected as the historian for Pi Omega Pi, the national business sorority ; Sarah Wohlford has been elected as the vice-president of the Spanish club; Pat Peregoy has been chosen as next year's Junior Circus chairman; Vannie Gunter was elected to th e Athletic Association Council; Mary Virginia Manson will serve as treasurer of the junior class ; and Carol Rex will be the secretary of the YWCA. Junior and senior members of Alpha will be serving as orientation leaders in September. This fits into our fall rush plans as we hope to use this opportunity to become better acqua inted with the freshmen .

FALL 1965

Alpha Alpha Miami University Oxford, Ohio It is easy to see that the Alpha Alphas are always on the go-just take a look at some of the things that we have been doing since February, 1965. After recovering from the drudgery of exams, we began informal r ush. There were coke dates, coke and chip parties in the suite, and a theme party to celebrate St. Patrick's D ay. Our rush ing proved very beneficial, for we took in some wonderful pledges. A very exciting part of our activities for many Alpha Alphas came on March 6 when many of our members were initiated. Activation was preceded by Starligh t Week during which the pledges were sold as slaves to the activities and later cleaned a fraternity house which proved very strenuous and yet fun for many of us. Following activation was our scholarship banquet. Sherrie Hewitt received our scholastic award and Peg McD aniel, who had just been initiated, received the Ideal Pledge award. At the same time Peg was given the chapter award for doing the most to promote our name on campus. Honors were also in store for other members of Alpha Alpha chapter. Pat Seese was elected as second vice president of the Panhellenic Council which puts her in charge of the junior Panhellenic Council. Peg Porter became vice president of Pi Mu Epsilon, mathematics honorary, and Dawn Sautters is now the captain of Shakerettes. A number of our members also appeared on the Dean's list. Spring Greek Week was devoted to fun and healthy competition. The fraternities competed in the Zeta Beta Tau bicycle race, the Lambda Chi Alpha chariot race (with the aid of the sororities) and the Delta Upsilon puddle pull while the sororities put forth their talents in the Zeta Tau Alpha songfest, the Delta Chi tricycle race, and the beauty contest. This exciting week was culminated with the Inter-Fraternity ball. Mav 1 was the date of our prohibition party. The minut~ one entered our "speakeasy" he or she was truly in the roaring 20's. The atmosphere was dark and smokey and everyone was dressed to fit the occasion. Poker and Black Jack tables, a roulette wheel, a floor show, and even a few squirt guns which looked like machine guns put an accent on the evening. Our dates were rewarded with black lace garters as favors much to their delight. All in all it was a fabulous evening for everyone. Exams and the graduation of our seniors ended the year for the Alpha Alphas. It is always sad to say goodbye, even for the summer, but we a ll had many good times to look back on and many to look forward to.- LINDA WITZKE

Indiana State College Indiana, Pennsylvania

Packed suitcases, empty rooms, and a last look at the now quiet campus-all these things are quite a contrast to the busy, fun-filled days enjoyed by Alpha Beta this spring. " Surfside A"'2.A" started out the quarter with a bang! The pledges really outdid themselves when they duplicated an island retreat with beautifully drawn murals, hot dogs, soda, and real live sand. Our annual Sweetheart Dance was a big success this year. Our theme was "Queen of Hearts" and Gayle Snyder proved to be a lovely "Queen of Hearts" when she was crowned our Alpha Sweetheart. Her attendants were Linda Moore and Peggy Steiner.

Spring rush was first on the agenda for our second semester. After pledging, the future members took over the reins to do some of the work. The pledges gave a dance with the theme of "The T op Hat Night Club." The huge crepe paper hat in the middle of the dance floor helped create a charming atmosphere. At our last meeting of the year, the spring pledge class presented the sorority with divider shelves for the room that they had built themselves. In March we participated in Greek Weekend. Friday night we sang "Climb Every M ountain" to a cha-cha beat and " Our Very Own" for Greek Sing. Saturday afternoon there was a powder puff football game and a carnival. We worked on a booth with another sorority and a fraternity. Our booth was called "Hit a Pledge," and consisted of balloons filled with water, a plywood board with two head size holes, and fraternity pledges. Our booth was very popular, and the profits were turned over to Panhellenic and Interfraternity to be donated to charity. In April we had a retreat at the college lodge. We wen t out Friday evening and stayed until Saturday afternoon. Aside from sleeping on a cold h ard floor everyone had a great time. We plan to have a retreat at the lodge twice a year. F or the fourth time we took the cup for the highest scholastic average. We won the honor this time with the highest average ever attained by any organization on this campus. Several of our members are officers in Kappa Omicron Phi, the home economics honorary fraternity . Sue Eckler is first vice president ; Carol Farver, second vice president ; and Peg Pugsley is alumnae organizer. Karen Standiford reigned as "Merry Go" Q ueen at the home economics dance. We we re all ready for summer buf have many plans with which to resume in the falL- MAUREEN CONROY

Our alumnae chapter went all-out for us at ou r annual alumnae banquet. We enjoyed the good food and fun , but the abi lity to share the fellowship with our wonderful alumnae was the most rewarding. Following the banquet our new officers were installed. Our annual all-campus Fun Festival proved to be a very exciting time for Alpha Beta this year. We all worked very hard on our booth, Alpha Sweet Beat, to make it one of the biggest and best of the festival. Later in the evening, cheers and screams could be heard all over camp us when our own D enny Gregory was crowned Fun Festival Queen. To add to our excitement, Sheri Wigal and Beth Muir won third in the talent contest with a modem dance to "Never on Sunday." At 6:30 one Saturday morn ing, the noise of a band co uld be heard coming from Socialibility H all. Who could be dancing so early in the morning? It was none other than the Alphas enjoying their last dance of the year, the Alpha Breakfast Dance. The theme of the dance was "May Day" and was carried out with a colorful May pole and floral table decorations. At the dance the Outstanding Pledge Award was given to Ruth R esinger, and Jeanie Coy was awarded the pledge with the highest honor point. Spring elections were greeted with much enthusiasm and campaigning. This year Alpha Beta was a member of the Action party which was successful in winning all of the Student Counci l positions. We are proud that two Alpha Betas were elected to serve on next year's Student Council. In this year's "tug-of-war" contest who should come out the muddiest, and also the winners, but the Alphas! Spring has not only been a time of fun-filled activities but also a time of hard work and achievement. Many Alpha Betas are members of hon orary organizations on campus and hold offices in these organizations. They serve as Student Mentors and College Ushers. Sheri Wigal was chosen to play one of the lead roles in the college's production of "Kiss Me Kate." We are also pround of Jane Miller and Linda Moore who have been elected to Who's Who this year. Alpha Beta has also been very active in working at the Mentally Retarded School in Kirksville. Several times each week, Alpha Betas devote their time as assistant teachers to these children. All in all, this has been a very rewarding spring for Alpha Beta, and we are looking forward to even greater achievements next year. -BECKY TAYLOR.

Beta Beta Colorado State College Greeley, Colorad路o There was snow on the ground when spring quarter began for the Beta Betas, but we all began the quarter with the new, fresh, and exciting spirit of spring. We started by pledging girls during open bidding. Soon after, we were happy to have Mrs. J oe H . Brewer, National Secretary, vis it us for a few days. She came to one of our "dawn" rehearsals for Songfest. This year we sang the love song "Come To Me, Bend To Me" from the musical Brigadoon. Our early morning practices were more than worthwhile when we performed on Saturday, May 1. We sang our song again on Sunday for our mothers at our annual M other-Patroness Tea. Our dinner-dance came next. We danced on the "Stairway to the Stars" at the T op of the Park in the Park Lane H otel in D enver. Next we donned our grundies and " took off" for Peaceful Valley Lodge and our mountain party. We hiked, roasted marshmallows, and took midnight swims in the heated swimming pool. At our evening party the pledges put on a skit by impersonating the graduating seniors. The seniors in return

Psi Psi Northwestern State College Natchitoches, Louisiana This last part of the spring semester was a busy time for us. Most of our time was spent "making ready" for our big Spring Formal. We chose "Le Soir dans Ia Fleur Feerie" (Night in the Flower Enchantment ) as our theme. The dance was held at the N atchitoches Country Club, decorated with huge magnolia blossoms, a wedding arch bedecked with rose boutonnieres for our dates, and baskets of fl owers and butterfli es on each table.

For our permanent philanthropic project, we have chosen to work as Pink Ladies at the Natchitoches Hospital. This volunteer work will aid our community and

The officers, as well as all members, found their interviews with her most helpful and enjoyable. We all found her to be a most warm and vibrant person. We held a closed rush with a supper banquet on April 1. The girls must have been intrigued as on April 26 we pledged some wonderful girls. April 24 found the girls clamping through the mud fetching pop bottles for our annual drive. The weather man always seems to know when we schedule this yearly event. On May 3 we Alpha Sigs sponsored a card party for the alums. This evening gave us an opportunity to show our appreciation to the alums who help us throughout the year. Our annual Founders' Day Banquet was held May 10 in the Paragon. This was our 25th anniversary. We felt it was the most successful banquet we had had. Our Mother-Patronesses this year gave us a picnic in place of a banquet. It was a fresh treat- and what a treat! Early this spring our chapter had a visit from one of our sisters from Beta Phi chapter at Stout State in M enomonie, Wisconsin. Verna Lange proved to be a ~rue sister. We hiked the Badlands at 4 a. m. one m ornmg, and that takes true Alpha Sig spirit. It was a great experience to share ideas, hopes, and laughs with a sister Alpha Sig.- VIRGINIA C. BAILLOD

Beta Iota Radford College Radford, Virginia The spring quarter, a busy, exciting one for Beta Iota, left us with many memories. For the first time we sent open bids during a spring

FALL 1965

Beta Iotas at the Panhellenic Dandelion Pickin' contest.

On April 25 quite a few of our members came back fr om L ongwood College in Farmville, Virginia, with tales of a very successful State Day. Alpha Week's various activities came to a climax with our annual Cabin Parties at nearby Claytor Lake. This "for members only" weekend was filled with swimming, boating, skiing, an all-night campfire on the beach, senior send-off, and a multitude of other memories, laughs, and tears. Then came Radford College's biggest social event of the year, May Day Weekend. Our own Marilyn Morrison was crowned May Queen and Kathy Porterfield was Maid of Honor. Bobbett Grausam, Connie Raybuck, and Evelyn Crane were also elected to serve on May Court. Vicki Sigmund , another Beta I ota, served as chairman of the May Commission, which co-ordinated all of the plans and activities of the weekend. Vicki was also the winner of our chapter's Frost Fidelity Award. Needless to say, it was a proud day for Beta Iota ! Lynn Schwier, one of our juniors, was chosen by the student body to be our college's Harvest Bowl Princess. Gayle Shepherd was Radford's princess to the Apple Blossom F estival. Gayle was also first-runner-up in the Miss Virginia Pageant of the Miss America Contest. Now that student government elections are over, two Alphas will be serving next year. Betsy Pres ton was elected to serve as senior class representative and Carol Feneli will serve as Studen t Life representative. Kay Barga was elected to the position of senior class secretary. This finds Beta Iota busily planning fall rush parties as we are anxiously looking forward to a new pledge class to carry on our traditions.- Juov HACK LEY


Beta Mu Henderson State Teachers College Arkadelphia, Arkansas Beta Mus at Henderson have had a wonderful semester of fun, work and outstanding sorority achievement. The third weekend of February was one of mass excitement for Beta Mus. Friday night the members entertained â&#x20AC;˘their pledges with a party. Our theme was Alpha Sig Bunny Club. As each pledge came into the ballroom, which was decorated as a night club, we took a picture of her behind a bunny poster with her head sticking through. Then the big sisters ushered their little sisters to their tables. The place cards were bunnies with fuzzy tails. The Alpha Sig "Beatles" were the hit of the night. After they sang their latest tunes, a song about our pledges was sung to the tune of "Froggie Went a Courtin." A skit was put on about the pledges by their big sisters. Their title was "Did You Know" or "The Evils of Our Pledges." The party was enjoyed by all, especially the pledges who had been scared to death! Off we go into the wild blue yonder as our pledges carried us out for a little walk at 5 :30 Saturday morning! What a surprise! At ten we had the initiation of our pledges. This was a time much looked forward to by our new sisters. They were each given a rose by their big sisters following the ceremony. Immediately after this ceremony, we held the pledging ceremony for our new pledges. Saturday night we had a Mother-Daughter banquet in a private dining room of a restaurant. M ost of our mothers came for this affair. Our patronesses were our special guests. After eating we had the announ cements of our new officers and receivers of awards. Jamie Sue Williams was our outstanding member. She was also the recipient of the Elizabeth Bird Small Award. Wanda Hill received the Frost Fidelity Award. D onna Gray was our best pledge. Diann Jameson and Marietta Bell received awards for the highest member and pledge grade points. Sunday afternoon we had a tea for our m others in the parlor of the Citizen's National Bank. After refreshments we held the installation service of new offi cers. H onors have been pouring in to Beta Mu since our last newsletter. H enderson's class favorites who are Alpha Sigs are Wanda Hill, J ody Endsley, Peggy Martin, K aren T ommey, Mary Lynn Ballard, Ba rbie Brookings, an d T erry Thompson . Out of five Queen of Stars fin alists, four were Alpha Sigs. They were Barbie Brooki ngs, J ody Endsley, M ary Lynn Ballard, and J eanie J ames. J eanie was named Queen of Stars.

February 13 we had our annual Panhellenic Valentine Dance. Beta Mu was in charge of the refre5hments. Before the dance we had a reception for our dates. We gave steins with A'i:.A engraved on them. Our dates will have these as a memory of a wonderful Alpha Sig night. Each sorority and fraternity nominated a person for King and Queen of Hearts. Our nominee, Judy Davies, received the titl e "Queen of Hearts." She was presented a dozen red roses. A'i:.As blossomed out in their spring outfits of dotted Swiss. Our colors of red and white stand out when we parade the campus. In March we took in another pledge. She, with our other pledges, has done exceptionally well in pledge training and activities. In April we initiated these pledges. Beta Mu was very fortunate to have with us Miss Rose Fellin, National Treasurer, in March. Her visit was enjoyed and appreciated by all members. She stayed with us in the dorm. Each member met with Miss Fellin. Saturday afternoon we entertained with a tea honoring Miss Fellin. We' d like to thank her for all the help she gave us. Just before Dead Week, we packed our bags and headed for Hot Springs, where we enjoyed a weekend of skiing, swimming, boating, fishing, and tanning. We dined together and had a wonderful weekend. We came back "red as a beet" ready as "REDDIES" to study for exams. Beta Mus have worked hard to make ourselves worthy of the name of Alpha Sigma Alpha and to be of service to our school. We proudly feel we have reached some measure of success and have even greater hopes of next year! ~LouA NNE L EAKE

Beta Rho Northern Illinois University De Kalb , Illinois How quickly it becomes time for us to tell of the end of the school year and the beginning of the fall plans!

in charge of the campuswide elections for homecoming, while Pat Kain will be serving on the University Center Planning Board, which is redoing our union. Marcia Zabinski has been selected as co-chairman of Greek Week for the year 1965-66. Unity will be achieved in our group this year as work on rush for the fall commences. We are looking forward to work on the formal parties which have an Oriental theme. We are working through the summer on rush and will crystallize plans at a summer reunion which we have each year. Our new house will be ready for us in the fall and will be on Greek Row with the other fraternities and sororities. We invite you to visit us and see our living room which will have a real fireplace, our kitchen which will be fully equipped to accommodate 45 girls, and all of our beautiful rooms on two floors . The house has beautiful double doors in the front and is of brick construction. The hopes of all of the girls are that we will achieve even greater unity and more campus participation next year. We were proud this year to have Bonnie Ruddell selected as the Delta Phi Beta fraternity sweetheart and Vicki DiPofi nominated for the May Fete court. J oanne Slowenski was elected to the PomPom dancing squad for next year and Roberta Allen became a member of Cwens, the sophomore women's honorary. We believe our chapter can achieve that little extra called sisterhood by being strong individuals and by being dedicated to every other member, understanding that she too is an individ ual and more importantly an Alpha Sig. -MARY ALICE ERNST

Beta Sigma Southwest Missouri State College Springfield, Missouri The girls of Beta Sigma Chapter celebrated Valentine's Day this year with a Formal Sweetheart Banquet D ance. Our candidates for the two top national sorority awards were announced: Lou Ann Lambeth for the Elizabeth Bird Small Award and Jo Kay Wilkerson for the Frost Fidelity Award. As a climax to the evening Suzanne Taylor was crowned A"2.A Sweetheart for 1965. In March a Mother-Daughter banquet was held at the chapter house, after which a style show was held at the "Paris." The tenth Lucy Mae Smith Award was presented to Karen Mikes by last year's recipient. The award, given annually to an outstanding senior in the sorority, is based on leadership, loyalty, and service to the sorority. Several Beta Sigmas atended State Day at which the chapter won the display trophy, and Lou Ann Lambeth, retiring president, was honored for her "outstanding service and leadership in Alpha Sigma Alpha." During the past school year, four of our girls served as cheerleaders: Eileen Reed, Sue Brown, Janet Austin, junior varsity; and Lesley Fleenor, varsity.

White Rose ; and Sandy Beadles was a candidate for "1 au Kappa Epsilon Sweetheart. Our chapter recently held a tea at the chapter house for the alumnae chapter and to install as a patroness Mrs. Arthur Mallory, wife of the president of Southwest Missouri State College. We really enjoyed our annual spring outing this year, which was held at Twin Oaks Resort on Bull Shoals Lake. The girls and their dates participated in many activities including swimming, skiing, a picnic, and barbecue. A barbecue for the graduating seniors was the last big get-together for our chapter. Among the last money-making projects for the year were our perfume sales and the pledge carnival, which was complete from clowns to kissing booth. This year has proved to be a successful and enjoyable one for Beta Sigma Chapter and we sincerely hope that our sisters across the nation had as rewarding a year.MARY WICKS

Beta Upsilon Indiana State University Terre Haute, Indiana Our chapter had a very full and exciting second semester. In January the annual Panhellenic dance was held. At this formal affair our own Janet Lautner was announced as " Ideal Sorority Woman" for the year. Throughout the year various members of our chapter took mentally retarded children to the Children's Theater and also to the college swimming pool. As another philanthropic project we helped collect for the H eart Fund and also the M.S. Drive. At the local juvenile delinquency center, we took turns entertaining some of the teenagers. We found all of these experiences to be very rewarding and are looking forward to doing the same next year. The Miss Page One Ball high-lighted Co-ed Weekend in February. The qualifications for this title are scholastic achievement, poise, activities on campus, and activities related to your major area. Marlene Bruce was our candid ate. In March the biggest campus activity of the school year was held. This event is Campus Review. For our 10 minute skit we did a presentation of "King MacDonald." In the skit we had squaredancers, scare crows that came to life, a king, and even three dancing animals. For our participation we received the Vern Dyer Award, which is given for group co-operation and spirit. Also in the month of May we had our formal spring dance. At this dance and banquet we honored our new pledges and presented them with an engraved scrapbook. Our State D ay was held in Fort Wayne this year. After renewing acquaintances, attending meetings, a style show, and a luncheon, we returned to T erre Haute. Shortly before school was over, we had the annual Songfest. We sang an English folk song entitled "Eighteen-Twenty," for which we received a third place plaque. At the Awards Day Convocation, our sorority received a trophy for having the highest scholastic index for the first semester. Our social patroness had a senior farewell picnic at her home. At this time we presented the seniors with silver candy dishes with our Greek letters engraved on th em.

Beta Phi Stout State University Menomonie, Wisconsin With another semester over, and a new one to look forward to, Beta Phi plunged into January by entering one of the biggest events on campus, Winter Carnival. We had three Alpha Sigs driving in the ice race, and one of them, Micki Kollauf came out on top as she won a first for her husband's fraternity, Phi Sigma Epsilon. We were full of high hopes for our own car, but snow banks became its only reward! The Alpha Sigs started a new tradition on campus this year as right after the ice races we had a Turtle R ace to start off our Sadie Hawkins Week. The imported snapping turtles were given to the fraternities on campus to display, paint, and train as they wished. The ballroom was packed as the critical hour arose, and the winner received the turtle and a trophy. We plan to continue this in the future as we felt it was a very effective idea. Our Hootenanny held during this week was bigger and better than ever before; and, to end the week everyone got out his best Stoutpatch outfits and had a stompin' good time at the dance held Saturday night. February found us busily working toward the goal of rush parties. This involved four informal parties of which we fe lt " Persian Holiday" was most effective. T he members dressed as Persian women d raped in sheets, scarves, and jewelry. We sat around low tables on pillows and munched stuffed finger fruit and drank spiced tea while a Persian version of Cinderella entertained us all. After completing our informal parties, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" was the theme of our forma l party. R ush being over, the Beta Phis are very proud of the new p ledges gained, and they immediately began working toward getting their membership pins. Catching up on many things, including studies, was the main aim of March. O n March 12 Parents' Weekend began, and many parents visited with our members as we had open house at our sorority house. In addition Beta P hi was involved in the presentation of the "Unsinkable Molly Brown" at the annual FOB Stunt Night. This act brought out the best in our many talented members, and everyone had a part in the production. March was also the time for Nancy Gigowski to be initiated after a severe skiing accident interrupted her pledging period. April 27 was the date for our pledges to put on their prettiest pink outfits and entertain the other sororities at their Pink Tea. This tea is held each spring by the pledge class and is a perfect opportunity for us to get better acquainted with other sorority girls on campus. May was truly another busy month for us . To start off the month Kathie DeVries reigned as the 1965 Prom Queen, and Kay Bauman served as one of the girls on her court. The following week the spring pledges were introduced to the campus with serenading. May 8 was the initiation day for them. They were all very pleased to become members and presented our chapter with much needed candle holders. Our spring banquet was held at the Coachman which is near St. Paul. After a delicious dinner, the pledges provided entertainment where mock academy awards were given. Having liked the Coachman so well, our Dinner Dance was held there as well. We were all attired in our best dinner formals as our dates escorted us for a wonderful night of dining and dancing. As the highlight of the evening our senior sweetheart was

36

crowned, and Sandy Stolp became a very deserving sweetheart. A warm farewe ll was given to the seniors leaving us on May 21. A song was composed for each senior by her little sister reminiscing her college life. We were sad to see our senior sisters leave us, but they left Beta P hi with many fond memories of service to our chapter. T he last week of the semester was an evaluation of the year and a planning of next year's activities, main ly of fall rush which will be our first big event of the fall term. Best of luck to all our sisters in the new college year.] AN VANMATRE

Beta Psi Western Michigan University Kalamazoo, Michigan The spring semester got off to a wonderfully busy beginning with the flurry of activity surrounding formal rush! Using the theme of " AL.A on Broadway," the Alpha Sigs created imaginative parties around such shows as South Pacific, Funny Girl, My Fair Lady, and Hello D olly with the use of costumes, appropriate floor shows and songs, refreshments-what could be more English than a tea party for My Fair Lady?-and a theatre marquee announcing, with the use of colorful posters, "Now playing . . . " and "Coming soon . . . " The result of the colorful r ush was a good-sized pledge class of enthusiastic girls and an increased feeling of sisterhood among all the Beta Psis. An added boost to the parties came from the appearance of many alumnae from the Kalamazoo chapter and the debut of new sorority outfits in the form of navy Aline skirts, short double-breasted jackets with crests on the bottom pocket, white "nothing" blouses, and red heels. Breaking up the routine of studies and special weekend during the semester were parties and breakfasts at the homes of various fraternities. Panhellenic Ball came j ust in t ime to blow away the March winds and brigh ten and highlight the pledging period. For this occasion the pledges of all eleven campus sororities wore long white dresses and silver crowns and were introduced to the Greek world by receiving a longstemmed red rose and walking down a long white ramp as their names were called. Alpha Sigma Alpha held a punch party and reception at the Harris Motor Inn prior to the dance in order to honor their dates with leather desk sets, on which the crest was stamped, and to greet the pledge class. Little Sister Weekend, an activity of campus-wide scope, was observed by Alpha Sigs as they treated their little sisters to lunch in the Union, following a program by A WS. Bowling, shopping trips, and campus tours were all part of the week-end designed to entertain and to introduce the younger set to university and sorority life. Close on the heels of Little Sisters' Weekend came the Michigan Alpha Sigma Alpha State Day, which was held this year at Western. The day of meetings and sisterhood was organized by Beta Psi's Karen Wykstera, members of the Kalamazoo alumnae group, and members of Beta Psi. Alpha Sigs from Adrian College, Central Michigan University, and Ball State were able to attend, as well as members of alum chapters in Detroit and Grand Rapids. Early morning coffee was followed by some hilarious skits, presented by the college chapters. Songs preceded the delicious luncheon at which spring-like salad plates, hot rolls, and relishes were served followed by a light strawberry pie. Dr. Paul Maier, history professor

THE PHOENIX


and Lutheran chaplain on campus, spoke after the luncheon, delivering a fast-paced, humorous talk dealing with some of the real advantages and challenges of Greek life. Bull sessions and planning groups at which common problems and new ideas were discussed took up much of the time in the afternoon. Meeting new sisters and getting acquainted with other chapters and schools seemed to help a great deal to foster a closer feeling of sisterhood and to make this year's State Day, which had the inviting theme of "Y'all Come" an enjoyable success! Elections on campus revealed the fact that many Alpha Sigs are going to be in the limelight in various positions; other sisters have been honored through national organizations. Carol Griggs was elected to the office of A WS president, tapped for Mortar Board, the national senior woman's honorary, and elected to Kappa Delta Pi, national education honorary. Lucy Kline is the new corresponding secretary of her dormitory and will also serve in the same capacity for the inter-dorm council of her quad. Lucy is also a new member of Sigma Alpha Eta, national speech and hearing honorary. Dotty Sasinowski is serving on Panhellenic Council in the capacity of treasurer, while Ellen Runkel was recently elected vicepresident of her religious organization, Canterbury Club. Ellen was also chosen as the Girl-of-the-Month in March by her dormitory. Serving A WS as the new IA WS contact is Mary Harmens. In order to help the sorority fund toward the new house, which will be a reality in the near future, Beta Psi has been busy with many money-making projects this spring. A car wash was held early in April with successful results. One of the best projects, which promises to be repeated during each semester, was a jewelry-cleaning booth operated by Alpha Sigs in the student center on campus. During the several days on which the booth was operated, fraternity and sorority pins, rings, bracelets, and other small pieces were cleaned for a small fee. The annual sale of plastic yearbook covers early in June was also a tremendous success! Honored as A2:.A's outstanding senior woman at the Panhellenic Dessert was the past-president, Judy Cousineau. Mothers' Weekend, another campus-wide activity at Western, was planned with a great deal of care by the Alpha Sigs. In addition to treating their mothers to the traditional tours and concerts, as well as to dormitory life, with its parties, teas, and shenanigans, Beta Psis honored their mothers at a lovely luncheon at the Gull Harbor Inn. A cold plate of salads, hot rolls, relishes, and the traditional specialty of the house, black-bottom pie, was served. Favors of small guest soaps in the shape of roses, enclosed in a small glass apothecary jar imprinted with the sorority. crest, were given to mothers as a memento of the occasion. Songs feted the guests as well as an award ceremony honoring recipients of scholarship awards, the chapter's Frost Fidelity and Elizabeth Bird Small Awards, and Beta Psi's Junior Pillow. Also honored with her name engraved on a special paddle was the outstanding pledge of the fall pledge class, Doralynn Miller. Right after Mothers' Weekend was the annual Sorority Sing, sponsored jointly by Panhellenic Council and Sigma Alpha Iota, national music sorority for women, of which Mary Mapes is a new member. Members were dressed as old-fashioned ladies of the Victorian era, with long turquoise bell-shaped skirts and long-sleeved white blouses trimmed delicately with lace at th e cuffs and neckline. Alpha Sigma Alpha sang their hearts out with a sorority song, "The Crimson of Loyalty" and a long time favorite, "The Old Lamp-lighter" to a capacity

FALL 1965

audience of three thousand. Beta Psi took second place! Topping off a most successful year was the annual houseparty at a lake at Coloma, Michigan. On Saturday the Phi Kappa Taus came out for the day to help the Alpha Sigs enjoy their swimming, boating, and general joking more fully! One of the nicest year end activities in which the Alpha Sigs were privileged to share was the serenade given to Carol Griggs and Tom Linblade on the occasion of their engagement! Both Sigma Alpha Epsilon and the Alpha Sigs sang in unison to honor the couple during the beautiful ceremony. Plans for next fall appear to be most encouraging and exciting. School will get off to an unusually early start in August as a result of the new trimester system. A fall retreat and plans for homecoming will be the most pressing of activities, as well as the staging of A2:.A's annual fall mixer!-ELLEN RuNKEL

Gamma Alpha Creighton University Omaha, Nebraska Christmas vacation ended and Gamma Alphas returned to Omaha, books in hand, ready for the oncoming final exams. After semester break pledges were initiated and second semester rush took a ski lodge theme. The new pledges joined our ranks. Freshman Cotillion Ball began the realm of social activities. Patti Morris reigned over the festivities with Eileen Barr and Lynn Pray in her court. We were all extremely proud of our new Alphas. Preparations were begun for the annual Panhellenic Dinner Dance to be held February 13 at the Diplomat Hotel. Our guests were presented with black loving cups inscribed with the A2:.A crest. Joellen Duggan was named Alpha Sweetheart and the award for the Most Outstanding Member was presented to Virginia Hogan, our rush chairman . Pledges, actives, and alumnae chose Paula Murphy as the recipient of the Best Pledge Award. Early in March we held nominations for officers followed by the election and installation. This same month was highlighted by Creighton Capers. Our honored guests for this weekend, Miss Mary K. Reiff and Mrs. Robert F. Redmond III, extended their congratulations together with the student body on winning the first place award. Pat "Father Poppins" Rice did a remarkable job in our version of Mary Poppins. Spirits soared at this earned but tremendous honor awarded to the Alphas. April, not the least of our bustling months, heralded many activities. Our former Sadie Hawkins party donned the revised atmosphere of a Mountain Dew Shindig. Members and their dates, dressed in "mountain" fashion headed to the hills of Hanscom park for a riotous evening of fun. Prom, in the latter part of April, lent a formal atmosphere as the Gamma Alphas turned out in full array to support our princesses Annette Maus and Jane McCarty. Also honored during this month was Angie Nestegard, candidate for Rose of Delta Sigma Pi. But what of May? Only studying?- definitely not! Alphas were scurrying about preparing for a tea given in honor of Mrs. Herx, our chapter's former moderator. It was our small way of showing our great appreciation for all she had done for us. Second semester pledges were initiated following a dinner at Johnny's Steak House in honor of the departing seniors. All of us will feel deeply the loss of these members.

Other members were honored by various fraternities during May. Kay Daily and Ann Morrow were candidates for the First Lady of Iota Kappa Epsilon. J ill Rinchen was chosen as a candidate for Sweetheart of Alpha Kappa Psi. For Gamma Alpha the year was filled with hard work. It went rapidly, but for the Alphas there are memories that could never be traded and memories that will never be lost.-ANDREA Novo-GRADAC

Gamma Beta Wisconsin State University Stevens Point, Wisconsin With the progressive appearance of spring Gamma Beta's fancies turned from dancing and Winter Carnival through rushing and pledging to philanthropic projects and Songfest. Panhellenic Council's annual formal, opening second semester activities, found us dancing proudly. We were in charge of the decorations, creating an atmosphere of "Magic Mist," highlighted by a Manhattan skyline mural. While sculpturing a handsome Argentine Gaucho from ice, fashioning prize winning posters, and winning second place in the games, we all shared the thri ll of Winter Carnival Week. "Annie Get Your A 2.A," the theme of our final rush party, produced a genuine western mood where rushees were entertained and given cowboy hats and cactus plants as favors. Soon after our newly initiated pledges arranged a party for the mentally retarded children at a local school, thus providing us with the personal experience of a philanthropic project. Our sisters from Gamma Epsilon chapter in M ilwaukee were gracious hostesses when we enjoyed State Day with them. The buzz sessions and acquaintances we made furnished us with new ideas and enthusiasm. After winning the trophy for two years, our Songfest practice was intense. Under the vivacious direction of Mary Hickner we sang "Consider Yourself" from Oliver and " People" melodiously enough for a third victory, thus earning the trophy for our own. Partings, some brief and others more lasting, were regretfully made at our senior recognition picnic. But, reminiscences mingled with expectations as we discussed future plans and hopes for the coming year. Committees have been arranged for all approaching events and as Greek Week and homecoming beckon we will be prepared to put Alpha Sigma Alpha up on top.- MARY jANE L EARY

Gamma Eta Pe nnsylvania St ate Unive rsity Universit y Park, Pe nnsylvania June found the Gamma Etas eagerly anticipating summer fun and activity. But an even bigger surprise awaited members returning in the fall. A brand new suite in the largest living area on campus greeted Gamma Etas. Colors of red and white, palm green and gold accented with black were chosen for our new home. A charcoal rug meets pale gold walls and the furniture including a seven foot long sofa, carries through th~ color scheme. A glass wall decorated with black and gold abstracts completes the contemporary setting. Fall rush begins the list of Gamma Eta's many activities this school year. new rush system has been instituted

38

at Penn State and the Gamma Etas have kept in stride by revamping their rush programs for both fall and winter. Homecoming will find the Gamma Etas working in conjunction with Phi Kappa Tau fraternity. We have high hopes for a first prize in the lawn display contest associated with this traditional event. Last spring term Gamma Etas, working alongside Phi Kappa Tau, had a rewarding and enjoyable time at a Saturday afternoon party given for a group of orphans. This was the second year both groups sponsored such a party. Individual members of our chapter, including past president Ellen McLaughlin and president Candy Shedd, have made significant achievements. Ellen was chosen for membership in Phi Beta Kappa and Candy was tapped for Scrolls, Senior Women's Honorary Society. The Gamma Etas have much of which to be proud. Both our new suite and our past honors offer the Gamma Etas a challenge as well as the motivation toward even higher achievements. -TERRI LEE FALCK

Gamma Theta Syracuse University Syracuse, New York Another school year will soon be a memory, and Gamma Thetas have much to look back on with pride and pleasure. The year has been filled with activities encompassing many phases of university and sorority life. R ewards in the academic area have been plentiful. A number of our girls became inducted in honoraries: Phi Kappa Phi, the all-university honorary, Carol Young; Lambda Sigma Sigma, junior women's honorary, Midge Patrick; Theta Sigma Phi, journalism; Carol Thorp; Alpha Lambda Delta, freshman women's honorary, Barbara Ingraham and Diana Belamoti; Alpha Epsilon Rho, radio-television, Carol J antz. In order to increase incentive the chapter holds a "steak and beans" supper once each semester. The members who have made the Dean's List eat steak, while the remainder get beans. 路 Gamma Thetas have also strived towards greater cultural development. Guest speakers were invited to dinner, after which they talked to the girls as a group. We feel that these talks greatly increased our knowledge and understanding of areas both within and without the university. The chapter participated in numerous joint projects this year. Parent's Weekend gave us the opportunity to introduce the parents of the members to the girls and to each other. An open house was held and cider and doughnuts served. Later in the afternoon the parents were given a tour of the house. Syracuse University's Campus Chest Carnival provided the opportunity for us to have a little fun and contribute to charity at the same time. An apple dunking booth was the result of the imagination and hard work of some of the girls. Christmas time found the Gamma Thetas organizing a party for underprivileged children. Cartoons, refreshments, and gifts were provided for the children. The girls also had a chapter Christmas party in which they exchanged gifts and enjoyed a snack of pizza and coke. Each class presented a skit, and a prize was given to the class with the best skit. Another project that the chapter undertook was the annual Winter Weekend poster contest. The theme of the contest was " Snow What's New." Our poster centered on the theme of the Texas White House.

THE PHOENIX


The sophomores undertook their own private project -remodeling the cellar. They washed scrubbed and painted to achieve the end result, a la~ndry and 'study room. Amidst these assorted tasks and accomplishments, the Gamma Thetas found time for social functions. Coffee and exchange dinners were held throughout the year. A Founders' Day Tea and an anniversary tea were also held. A combination senior and pledge banquet took place at a local restaurant. The Best Pledge Award was given to Diana Belamoti, and the seniors were all given gifts. The pledges all had to write and sing an original piece and the best song was awarded a prize. To enhance physical development, the Gamma Thetas took up various competitive and group sports. Girls competed on the bowling and badminton teams and participated in an aquatic ballet. Individual members have also found success in their various fields of interest. Two girls were elected officers of WAER, the campus radio station. One girl has been appointed the feature -editor of the campus newspaper. Another has recently been elected secretary of A WS, the organization for women students. Eight girls were selected to serve in the Campus Guide Program and two became members of Goon Squad, the group chosen to orient the freshmen. Two girls were also selected by Angel Flight, the women's auxiliary to the Air Force. Much time has also been devoted to freshman and upper-class rush. When formal rush parties are not being held, the girls are busy arranging coffees and inviting girls to dinner. Now as the year draws to a close, Gamma Thetas are already planning on projects and activities for the coming school year. We hope that it will be even more rewarding than this year has been.- VALERIE WHALEN

Gamma Iota Rochester Institute of Technology Rochester, New York "Hey, where is the paint for the booth? Who took the saw? These are some of the fami liar cries heard during Spring Weekend, the biggest social event of the year at R. I. T. Every organization on campus participates in the festivities . "Madeline Goes to Manhattan," our theme for the weekend, won for us fourth place in overall competition. Among the activities participated in by the competing organizations were an outdoor advertisement, a carnival booth, and a skit. Gamma Iota captured first place in skits with a humorous and musical interpretation of "Madeline Goes to Manhattan." Our carnival booth, depicting Central Park, contained a goldfish pond from which 200 live goldfish were sold. Two of our sisters, Sue Gray and Janna Gane, were nominated for Miss R . I. T ., the highest non-academic honor at school-with Sue Gray being elected Miss R. I. T. Also during the ceremonies of Spring Weekend, Sue Gray was inducted into Alpha Sigma Lambda, an honorary fraternity standing for activities, scholarship, and leadership. This coming fall, three of our sisters will be serving on the Panhellenic Executive Board, Donna Hurd as president, Barbara Popp as social chairman, and Donna Bronson as secretary. The Rochester City Panhellenic awarded Gamma Iota the Scholarship Tray signifying the highest scholastic achievements of a national sorority m Rochester during the 1964-65 school year. At our Dinner Dance, the major social activity of Gamma Iota during the year, Sue Gray was awarded the

chapter's Elizabeth Bird Small Award, Janna Gane received the Ideal Pledge Award. In addition, our appreciation was expressed to all who had helped us during the year, especially our adviser, Mrs. Brent Archer. Farewells were said to all of our graduating sisters. What a great year this has been for us. We are eagerly awaiting the beginning of another. Starting the activities will be a reunion of the sisters at the cottage of Charlene Graupman. Following this event, school starts and rush begins. T he Gamma Iotas wish everyone a fun -filled and successful summer.- CHERYL 0GBORNE

Gamma Kappa Glenville State College Glenville, West Virginia The last month of school was a very busy one for the Gamma Kappas. Besides finals we started the month off with a German beer party. This party was a card party and each table featured a checked table cloth and a candle in a bottle. The only light was furnished by the candles. For refreshments we had pretzels and root beer. All the girls and their dates had a wonderful time . On May 7 one of our patronesses gave A-:E.A a slumber party . We had strawberry shortcake and punch when we arrived and after eating we sat in a circle and played games till quite late. The next morning we were served donuts and coffee . I 'm afraid that Miss Pickens did not get much sleep that night but we had a wonderful time. This is the second year in a row that Miss Pickens has given us a slumber party. On May 10 Alpha Sigma Alpha sponsored the annual Mother's Day Sing. All organizations on campus were invited to participate and most groups did. We had a trophy for first place and certificates for second and third. The day was beautiful and while the judges were deciding on the winner, A -:E.A sang "A-:i:.A Sweetheart" and "You are a Wonderful M other." After the Sing we had a reception for our parents. Red and white was the theme, and this was carried out in the flower arrangements and the table decorations and the refreshments. For relaxation we had our annual picnic on May 15. This year it was held at Lake Riley. We enjoyed swimming, boating, sun bathing, tennis, and hikes. We had hot dogs, potato chips, and watermelon for refreshments. The girls had a wonderful time and acquired nice suntans. In regard to our project five girls went to St. Marys Training School on May 16 to give a program for the children. We took potato chips and suckers for the children. I am sorry that more girls could not go, but we did not have enough cars to take them 路all. We have decided to adopt twelve little boys who will be placed in a section that they call the ship room. This part is decorated like a ship and will be furnished this way. We plan to write to the boys, to send them birthday cards, to get the sailor suits, sock and sailor hats. This will be our project for the coming year. Of course we plan to visit them as often as we can. We would like to take them on a picnic some weekend, but that is in the planning stage. The alumnae chapter of Glenville gave us an awards dinner the Thursday before school was out. We had a wonderful meal served in the Colonial Room. The Elizabeth Bird Small Award was won by Johanna Coleman of Williamtown. The Frost Fidelity Award was given to Martha Hornor, our past president. The alumnae gave a gift to the girl who they considered had worked the

39


hardest all year long. Joan Ward won this award. Gifts were given to Susie Kirsch who will get married this fall and to Mrs. Larry Cobb, alumna, who is moving to Illinois. In order that all the girls can keep in touch with each other we decided to have one girl start a letter and send it to the girl who is next on the roll. After her the girls will just add their letters to the ones that they receive. This way we will be able to know what our sisters are doing this summer. When the "letter" has made the round once, the first girl will write a new letter and replace her old one with this new one and then send the letters on to the next girl. This is our R ound Robin. The second weekend in September we plan to have a retreat. Here at this time we will plan our activities for the next year. We hope to have lots of fun and also get a lot accomplished. The year looks bright for Gamma Kappa and it looks busy as usual. We hope to make this our second year in Alpha Sigma Alpha our best year yet- RuTH CoNRAD

Weekends "Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" booth brought the second place trophy to Gamma Lambda. We were the only sorority to receive any award. Our spring formal was held at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel where Alpha Sigma Alpha brandy sniffers were given to the members, and red and white garters were given to their dates. All things considered, last year was a successful one, although, we are sure "next year will be better."- VALERIE HACKERT

Loyola University Chicago, Illinois At last! Gamma Lambda chapter at Loyola University has completed its first full year as Alpha Sigma Alpha, and it has been a wonderful one. Please remember ..the old saying: "Big oaks from little acorns grow," because this newsletter is certainly the littlest nut yet. Looking back on the year 1964-65, we see that it was filled with joy and sorrow. Inducted as an official chapter on October 18, 1964, we happily initiated twe lve pledges. Gamma Lambda went into Pow-Wow Weekend filled with hope, energy, and "the best darn float" ever; but carne out with cold hands and wet feet, for the traditional parade had been snowed out. Undaunted we entered the hastily arranged "Snow-Scu lpturing Contest" with Tau Delta Phi fraternity and took second place. Entering the Interfraternity Council Sing with swell voices and swelled heads, we naturally lost. Second semester hailed in the Variety Show. Although our two scripts were turned down, we captured second place in the contest for the Spirit Trophy. University

Gamma Mu Adrian College Adrian, Michigan Second semester has been GO time for the sisters of Gamma Mu. With initiation, trips, and parties the girls have really been busy. Our first big event was "going into" Alpha Sigma Alpha as official members. Naturally, this March weekend was the biggest weekend for the newest chapter of April was "go places" month. Michigan State Day was a new experience. The prize for the best skit was presented to Gamma Mu chapter. We not only attended Michigan State Day at Western Michigan University, but we also attended Indiana State Day in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. "Go-partying" month was May. In order to increase our membership, a formal rush party was held. The theme was "A lpha Sigma Moon." Several original songs were used throughout the evening. Saturday morning more wonderful girls pledged Alpha Sigma Alpha. The fo llowing weekend was the spring formal. Many hours of work were required to make "Younger than Springtime" the success that it was. The sisters of Gamma Mu are very proud of the honors they have received. For having the highest scholastic average of the campus sororities, a silver trophy was presented to them during the Hono's Convocation. At the Women's Recreation Association Banquet Alpha Sigma Alpha was presented the trophy for most intramural participation. ow that we have the awards, we are going to keep them! - LJN ATIO

Spring brought the end of another year Filled with Alpha fun and cheer. All though the rainy months of gloom Sorority life made our spirits zoom. The tale I will now relate Is of the things we've done to date. A Dessert Tasting Party was our March event. It certainly was an evening well spent. Culinary and culture blended together To make it the best evening ever. Mina Gossen described current New York plays. ( We all knew her from college days.) Each member donated her favorite creation. Fifteen desserts were quite a sensation. With a nibble here, and a munch, munch there, We sampled what the others had to share. Each was a wonderful and fancy confection. With recipes avai lable for our selection. When the last crumb was gone we went on our way, Looking forward to our luncheon in May. The day dawned sunny, bright and hot. We certainly were a "springy" lot. Our guests of honor were the brides of the year. And now their names are listed here. Sally Concardi Crino, Penny Bailey Stephens, Rose Furfari Battaglia, Carol Harris Hefley, Rosemary Lodestro Lett Then the officers and Board we did install. We picked a fine crew to carry the hall. Carry! Forrest now yie lds the presidential post. Now it's Marge Suggs whom we all toast. Entertainment was provided by The Sweet Sixteens of Amherst High. R uth Swenson's daughter, Lindy, led this group. T hey reall y performed like a seasoned troop. As the afternoon quickly drew to an end We thought of summer vacations to spend. But for the board the end was not in sight. They had to meet for another night.To plot the course for '66 And think up new and better tricks. This year has been a worthwhile one: A little work, a lot of fun. We wish the same for each of you, Wherever you are, whatever you do.- CAROL Eoov

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS-NORTH The Chicago-North alums have had an unusually interesting 1965 Spring. Meetings were planned to have as much variety as possible and to accomplish our 1965 goals. At our late February meeting gay and colorful placemats were made at the home of Mary Uecker BP for the children at Children's M emorial Hospital in Chicago. It was our hope that an evening of our time could help to enlighten the dinner hour of many unfortunate children. The placemats were delivered to the hospital by Terse Norgaard BP , and the children were very appreciative and delighted to receive them. This warm reward ended a fun -filled "philanthropic night." Our past president, Sonnie Lubinetz Swanson BP, is the adviser of the new Gamma Lambda chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha at Loyola University in Chicago. She has devoted her time and patience to developing a new chapter of our sisterhood. Terse orgaard BP assisted in the

FALL 1965

Our fall meeting consisted of reports on the National Convention and reports of the tea attended by three of our girls honoring the new Gamma Lambda chapter at Loyola University in Chicago. October and November were fun meetings with an auction of gifts, the proceeds placed in our philanthropic fund and a lovely tea held at the home of Erva Horn honoring the college chapter. This was for the purpose of getting to know our college chapter better. Our Founders' Day dinner was held at Mamie's Grotto and thanks to Pat J ohnson and J oyce Jacobs for making this such a delightful affair. December and January meetings were a little more educational. Dr. George Collentine from St. Mary's Hospital gave a talk and showed slides on the work done at the Burn Center. We decided to contribute twenty-five dollars toward the cause. Mrs. Leon Weisgerber from the Milwaukee Public Museum showed a film on " Scenic Summer in Wisconsin ." This was an excellent program. A joint meeting of the Alpha and Beta chapters was held in February. Members of the college chapter were our guests. Mercedes Chalmers from Patricia Stevens Career College and Finishing School gave a humorous talk entitled "Charm in a Capsule. " The program was entertaining as well as instructional. March brought a program of informal discussions concerning problems of the college chapter . It was intended to show how we alums might help the girls. On March 20 we held our State Day at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. A large number of alumnae members from Alpha and Beta attended, but because of bad weather Stevens Point was the only other college represented besides our own Gamma Epsilon who served as hostess. In spite of this, we had a wonderful day- all credit given to Ann Wallenberg and all the girls including their most capable advisor, Ilia Louise D obbs. April brings Easter baskets. We made and filled 250 baskets and gave them to the mentally retarded at Southern Colonies. The wind-up to the year was our annual spring luncheon with speaker Mr. Herbert Biermann from the Jewish Vocational Service explaining the Saturday program for mentally retarded people. Marie Terewilleger, chairman of our board, installed the new officers . Yes, it was a fine year, but we have hopes of an even greater one in 1965-66.- LORAINE HENTSCHEL

SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA

Our final meeting of the season was held Monday, May 24, and we were all so busy enjoying Ruth Puis' hospitality that it was difficult to get down to the business of electing our officers for 1965-1966 but somehow we managed to do so.

nn

Ruth Puis has done such a wonderful job representing A'2..A at the city panhellenic meetings that she has been asked to stay on as panhellenic secretary next year. By the way, the Panhellenic Dance was a great success and A'2..A was cited for having such a fine representation. The International Buffet held at Marguerite Talbot Keating's BZ was enjoyed by all, and we were so pleased that some of our active girls and their dates could be there too. It has been such fun this year to have new alumnae members join us from our R.I.T. chapter and to watch with pride as our active girls receive all sorts of awards. We have initiated two more alums, Cynthia Hurley and Peggy Zimmer, and have already put Cynthia to work helping Betty Plaster Laubenstein and Mary Mentesana Stevenson (both Pi Pi) plan next year's program. We are happy to report that both Betty Clancy Breese and Sally Shipton Meisenzahl rx have recovered very nicely from recent bouts with major surgery.
