annual picnic. Swimming, boating, hiking, assorted games, and plenty of food highlighted the day for the couples. We really had a wonderful time. Our thoughtful Glenville alumnae chapter honored us with an awards dinner near the end of school. We enjoyed a special dinner and then the awards were presented. The Elizabeth Bird Small Award was presented to Sandra Salyers with Ruth Conrad winning the Frost Fidelity Award. Carolyn Hudkins was chosen as the Ideal Pledge for the year, and Anne Stukey was the recipient of the Alumnae Achievement Award, which is presented to the outstanding, all-around girl in the chapter. D onna Pittman, member, and Jo Ellen Luzader, pledge, received the chapter scholarship awards. The Gamma Kappas presented the alumnae chapter with an engraved gavel. We also awarded our adviser, Mrs. Martha D ee!, with a jeweled sorority pin in recognition of her wonderful leadership and guidance through the entire year. Mrs. Harold C. Brown, National Extension Director, inspected our chapter on May 20 and 21. A reception honoring Mrs. Brown was held upon her arrival in Glenville. We enjoyed having her very much and hope she did not find her experience too harrowing here in the "backwoods of West Virginia." She offered us much valuable advice and we plan to follow her suggestions in chapter work. We will again circulate the round robin letter among the members of our chapter. The letter is acumulative correspondence which is circulated in alphabetical order. The letter is received, added on to, and then sent on to the next girl. In this manner we can keep up on the activities of each of our members during the summer months. The coming year looms brightly on the horizon for us . . We have already begun our tentative plans for the years activities and projects, and we hope to be able to follow through with them. We feel that this, our second year, has been a productive and a most delightful one and hope the next one to be even more fruitfuL DoN NA PITTMAN

Gamma Lambda Loyola University Chicago, Illinois Another school year has passed filled with fond memories which brought pride and pleasure to Gamma Lambda. Pow-Wow Weekend in December saw us with first place in the float parade and an Alpha Sig, Gail Grodoski as "Miss Loyola." With the onset of the spring semester, formal rush brought us to an "Ice Cream Parlor" and introduced us to a wonderful spring pledge class of enthusiastic and hard-working girls. The Best Pledge Award was given to Marymartha Horn. Besides participating in our philanthropic project, Operation Snowball, our pledge class conducted a campaign of their own to collect toys for mentally retarded children. The next university activity didn' t pass up A"LA"Variety 1966."

FALL 1966

Our Mother-Daughter Communion Breakfast was held on May 1 with an 11 : 30 Mass and breakfast following at The Holiday Inn. It was at this breakfast that the Scholarship Awards were presented. Among those receiving an award was Marilyn Norek for having the highest grade point average. One of the high points of the semester is the annual University Weekend at which Alpha Sigs walked away with a first place with our "Martians Invade the Circus" booth at Roar Weekend. Our social life was not neglected either. Our traditional Christmas and Easter parties were interspersed with numerous date parties. Gamma Lambda climaxed the year with the Senior Farewell. It was at this we bid our members a successful and rewarding future and we participated in the ceremony at which the seniors were initiated into alumnae membership. The Alpha Sigs of Gamma Lambda have much to be proud of. We are all ready for an even better year than ever before, including our hope that next year's State Day at Gamma Lambda will be an interesting and enjoyable one.-Jo-CAROL BLUMENTHAL

Gamma Mu Adrian College Adrian, Michigan This year the winter and spring months were busy times for Gammu Mu. After a short week's vacation we returned, anxious to begin our second semester. The first big campus event was the annual Winter Carnival. Gammu Mu competed with other sororities in such activities as tall tale contest, snowball throw, and tricycle race, and placed well in all events. Social activities for these weeks included a Square D ance held at the local Grange, an iceskating party, and a picnic following our long awaited Spring Formal held this year at the beautiful Inn America in Ann Arbor. Many long sessions of practice helped Gamma Mu in our presentation of songs from Brigadoon for the annual Spring Sing. Our quartet sang a medley from South Pacific. Through the music department a record of all entries was made and is a real treasure, full of memories for all of us. State Day this year was held in Lansing at the Jack Tarr Hotel. Gamma Mu met with the Beta Psi and Beta Theta chapters as well as alumnae from Kalamazoo, Detroit, and T oledo. It is always a pleasure to meet with other sorority women for a day of fun an d an exchange of ideas. April 30 was by far our busiest day of the year. In the morning we held an initiation ceremony for our pledge class, and in the afternoon Gamma Mu sponsored a Mother's Day luncheon and late-afternoon tea, followed by our Mother Patroness ceremony. Throughou t the day Greek Weekend activities were also schedul ed in which Gamma Mu participated . The competitive events for sororities included a bed race, can piling, kite flying, log sawing, spike driving, and a puddle pull. Gamma Mu took first place in the puddle pull and second place in the overall competition. Summer vacation came just at the right time. Gamma Mu saw her members leave for various summer jobs, school sessions, and vacations. September will bring a happy reunion and the beginning of another busy year for J\lpha Sigma Alpha at Adrian.- KAY DELONG
