pledge class. The pledge dance they organized, " Pennies from Heaven," gave us an evening to remember. This year the Alpha Gams were happy to host Pennsylvania State Day. The day's activities included a luncheon, business meeting, workship, and song fest. All in all, the day gave us a good opportunity to exchange ideas a nd songs, but m ore than that, it gave us all a chance to become closer as sisters. Everyone who was there is now eagerly awaiting next year's State Day. Then it was time to buckle down to some real work! With University Weekend rapidly approaching, it was time to begin practi ce for Greek Sing. With the excellent guida nce of Lin Risiliti, we prepared our selections, "College Days" and a Gershwin M edl ey. Our nightly practices paid off. F ollowing Greek Sing, we were selected by a campus poll as having given the most outstanding performance and were asked to sing at the Swing Out activities as a farewell to th e seniors. Finally, several received honors for a variety of reasons, including brains, beauty, and leadership! Three of our members fall into this first category by being initiated into honorary fraternities. Carol Kirk joined Delta Phi Delta, honorary a rt fraternity ; Lynn Fisher was initiated into Kappa Delta Pi, educational honorary ; J udy Davis joined Kappa Omicron Phi , honorary home economics fraternity. Entering into the second categor y, beauty, two of the sisters were nominated for frat ernity swee thearts. Polly Sinkus and Elaine Edwards were both nominees for "Dream Girl" of Delta Sigma Phi. As for leadership, the Alpha G ams are ce rtainly doing their share of the work in campus activities. A prime exa mpl e of this is Barbara Musgrave, who was a recipient of a "Little Indian" Award .
