The Gamma Thetas came up with an original float entitled "Just An Old-Fashioned C omputer" to fit in with the theme of the University's Spring Weekend, "The Times They Are Changing." An "old-fashioned girl" with a long gown and a parasol and her cautious suitor made quite a con tras t with a modern computermatched couple similar in dress and appearance! The Gamma Thetas participated in the chariot race held during Greek Week. Last but not least, we gave surprise bridal showers for two of our fav orite seniors. In closing, may we wish all the other chapters best of luck in the coming year and the hope that it will be the m ost successful one yet.-DIANE BALAMOTI

assisted by Susan Nifenger as vice president, Judy Van Peursem, secretary, Cheryl Ogborne, treasurer and Sandra Donatucci, social chairman. On May 21, the RIT Panhellenic Council sponsored a sorority seminar which was well attended by all the sororities. Ten members of the City Panhellenic attended to lead discussions on such topics as rushing and pledging, morals and standards, the role of Panhellenic and how to get another sorority on the campus. It was unanimous that the seminar was worthwhile and another is being planned for the fall quarter. Winding up activities for the year was our annual closed dinner dance, this year held at the Holiday Inn. Favors were Zombie glasses with the A""Z.A crest. During the course of the evening chapter recognition awards were given out, with J oanne Gaylord receiving the Ideal Pledge Award, Barbara Popp the Frost Fidelity Award, and Donna Bronson the Elizabeth Bird Small Award . Also, the sorority was presented with a sterling cream and sugar set and a check for $300 from the graduating seniors to go in our Housing Fund for the new campus. Individual honors throughout the year made us proud to be Alpha Sigs. Helen Hayes was chosen Sentimental Sweetheart by Phi Kappa Tau fraternity, several members made the Dean's List, three members and a pledge were elected to posts as departmental Senators for the Student Senate, and Susan Bland was elected to Who's Who in American Colleges for the second consecutive year.- SuE DENNY

Gamma Iota Roch ester Institute of Technology Roch ester, New York The spring quarter has meant a lot of activity for Gamma Iota. We initiated our pledges, and for the first time, a pledge who was on work bloc was initiated by Theta Theta chapter, Boston University. Our thanks go to Theta Theta. Very soon after pledging ended the new members were pu t to work, with the help and advice of the other members, making plans for our annual Spring Weekend . Under the direction of Susan Nifenge r, we had our outdoor adve rtising display a nd Carnival booth completed well before the deadline. Our th eme for the Showboat Weekend was "The Birth of the Blues-Basin St.," and in keeping with our theme, our carnival booth was the R ed Garter Cafe, New Orleans style, which fea tured most of the members in a skit. T ogether, the displ ay and the cafe managed to wi n us fourth place in over-all competition. Also competing for honors during the weekend were Sue Bland, J ean ne K entner Clarke, Charlene Graupman, and Barbara Popp, all of whom were candidates for the title of Miss R .I.T., the highest nonacademic honor. Gamma Iota was award ed the highest scholastic honor among the sororities. We were presented with the Panhellenic Scholarship tray for a cumulative 2.65 scholastic ave rage ove r four quarters. Election of offi cers was held on April 20, and we are pleased that Charlene Graupman as president will be

Glenville State College Glenville, West Virginia The spring season always finds the Gamma Kappas at their busiest. We ushered out "old man winter" with a chapter swimming party at the indoor college pool. Our major concern for the season was the hosting of the West Virginia State Day. April 30 proved to be a dreary, stormy day, but the A ""Z.As were not hampered by the weather conditions. Ideas were exchanged, friendships were deve loped, and memories were made by those attending. We of Gamma Kappa are p leased with the day's outcome, and are anxiously awaiting Wes t Virginia State Day next year. Before our second initiation, the pledges we re honored by the members with a surprise party follow ed by a scavenger hunt. The pledges later reciprocated with a mock kidnap of R ebecca Stalnaker, followed by a surprise party for th e members. Gamma Kappa sponsored the fourth annual M other's Day Sing. Campus organizations were invited to participate in the event and the competition was keen this yea r. The first and second place winners were awarded trop hies by our president, Sandy LeGrand e. Faculty and town people are always instrumental in th e success of our sing as they act as judges, in the capacity of master of ce remonies, and through the lending of needed equipment. The day turned out to a warm and memorable one for all participants, parents, and the Alpha Sigs. A tea honoring the parents and guests of members was held in the Pioneer Center Ballroom following the sing. The theme of red and white was carried out in the table decorations, flower ararngements, and refreshments. For a break from all the formal activities of the season we, along with our dates, traveled to Lake Riley for our
