Phi Phi 路 Northwest Missouri State College Maryville, Missouri Second semester held many happinesses for Phi Phi. In February, the chapter had their informal dance based upon the theme of "East India." This dance has taken the place of our former sweetheart dance and is more casual. For decorations we used a papier-mache elephant head, gongs, and tapestries. The refreshments consisted of delicious fresh fruit, baked in honey and butter, and hot tea. It was a very thrilling experience for Phi Phi to have two of the three finalists in the Tower Queen Contest . Dianna Brown and L a rna Stevens were two of the three girls picked by the judges to be voted on by the student body to determine the queen. In the final vote, Dianna Brown Phi Phi's pres:dent, was chosen T ower Queen of NWMSC. We are all very proud of our "Little Alpha Sigma Girl." . . . .

Sara Copman, Toni J ohnson, and Kathryne Seabaugh represented Phi Phi as three of the ten finalists in the Miss Maryville Pageant. They each did a short talent sketch, appeared before the judges in evening gowns, and appeared before the judges in swimsuits.

The Blue R oom of the Student Union was converted into a majestic and romantic "Emerald City." The entrance was a winding yellow brick road and led to a tiny sparkling bridge that looked as it it were part of a dream world. The refreshments were tiny snowballs and punch. The highlight of the evening was the crowning of Carol Workman who was named our sweetheart. VVe all lined up togethe r and sang the " AL.A Sweetheart Song" as she received her bouquet of red roses. As a pleasant ending for the school year, Phi Phi held its annual parents' day. It is an especially happy occasion since this is the time when we introdu ce our real family to a ll our sisters in Alpha Sigma Alpha. This year the day was extra special because many of the members' mothers received the Crown D egree of Alpha Sigma Alpha. This has been a very profitable and happy year for Phi Phi, and we are looking forward to next fall when we hope to make even bigger achievements with our strong bond of sisterhood.-KRIS JoHNSTO N

Chi Chi Ball State University Muncie, Indiana Chi Chi ended the school year with many wonderful and exciting activities and events. During the month of April we won first place in the annual All-Greek Variety Show. We were grouped with two fraternities and one other sorority. The group wrote the script, cast the parts, made the costumes and stage scenery and presented a 15 minute act. The name of the winning act was "A T ool of Heaven." Spring Sing and Trike-A-Then, both annual events on the Ball State campus, kept the sisters busy trying to keep our voices as we ll as our trikes in good shape for competition. For Spring Sing the sisters chose to wear black dresses, wh ite gloves and red carnation corsages. The spring formal, "Luau for Lovers," was held at the H oliday Inn in Richmond, Indiana. The sisters wore colorful mumus and several dates were attired in matching shirts. Ice buckets were given as favors. Everyone enjoyed sitting on the floor eating in the true Hawaiian style. The Alpha Sig Man-of-the-Year was announced during the dance. This year the Chi Chis celebrated an other "first" as we presented a duel selec tion for this honor. This award is given to a lavaliered or pinned man or a fiance of a member who has aided the sorority throughout the year. The sisters felt that both men had been a great help to the chapter during the year. Identical trophies were given.
