oen1x ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA FALL 1975
Founders' Day 1975 "People will not look forward to posterity who never look backward to their ancestors." Edmund Burke What better way to focus on our seventy-fifth Diamond Anniversary year, than to pause and reflect on the dream of Virginia Lee Boyd, Juliette Jefferson Hundley, Mary Williamson Hundley, Louise Burks Cox, and Calva Hamlet Watson: Alpha Sigma Alpha. Theirs was a dream of a new century-of a day when few women were privileged to be educa ted in college, and of those that were, teaching was the primary endeavor. Theirs was a day of fighting the boredom of fixed and dull routines on a campus usually in a small rural town. Theirs was a day of discussing social, literary, and political issues in order to learn the facts rather than the religious interpretation of the facts. Theirs was a day of poor communication and vast distances from campus to campus. Hence, these young women had the time and desire to create a dream for the future contributions of women to society, and to embellish their dream with elaborate ritual and the paraphernalia of secrecy. From these forthright foundations, it appears that our Founders' dream was to be an instrument of reform on the campus, reform for the existing social and political conditions. However, even more basic to their dream, was the desire to form, enjoy and perpetuate friendships while at the same time positively affecting the woman's role in society. Now we come to the seventy-fifth year and the threshold of a new dream. This dream, however, is now set in a sophisticated environment of many progressive sororities, each offering a "sisterhood" of its own. Alpha Sigma Alpha "sisterhood" as defined by our Founders and practiced by our present leaders refers to a basic need to cultivate friendships among its members, to create pure and elevating sentiments, to perform such deeds and to mold such opinions as will tend to elevate and enable womanhood in the world. To quote a chapter, when asked about the goals of our sorority in their mind: "The role of Women in today's society is changing and the sorority should help its members to accept this change and grow with these new ideas. There should be more emphasis on the career women, but also for the homemaker as well." From this, we see the goals and traditions of our sorority must be retained, while at the same time holding a mid-point on the "trends" associated with campus living, and more specifically, women's liberated lifestyle. The following areas comprise the threshold of our dream to take us from our seventy-fifth year to our one-hundredth year in Alpha Sigma Alpha. First, communication: better communication :rom the National Council to the National Officers, Collegians, and Alumnae, and better communications from these groups back to the Council, which will be accomplished by more and closer national officerj chapterj alumnae involvement; better communication to locate and re-invalve lost lambs; constructive education through the PHOENIX. Next, finances: continued sound money management and investment; continued modest spending in keeping with income; supervision of all phases of money management from the National Officers down to our smallest chapter; new sources of income. Third, leadership: more and better training for officers at all levels of the organization; leadership training based on the original bond of sisterhood to "give full measure" as an acceptance of responsibility and obligation to your sorority; officer handbooks for each collegiate and alumnae office. Fourth, pledge education : strong education program in the responsibilities of being an A"':.A; education to foster NationaljAlumnae relationships. Fifth, public relations: a well-organized national Public Relations program to keep A"':.A in the eyes of our communities. Sixth, rush: strong colonization of chapters; rushing hard to take total at all times; bidding every potential A"':.A to give the opportunity of sorority affiliation to her. And last, a total evaluation of our National structure, its member parts, and its areas of dedication, which would produce a tightly woven organization, dedicated and highly supportive of a cause which would raise humanity in some specific area. Yes, we are on the threshold of a dream in 1975, and we can make it happen today and everyday, for a futu re Alpha Sigma Alpha, born seventy-five years ago, and moving forth to its first century with planning and direction, strength, support, and the blessings of five women who wan ted so much more for their members and womanhood.

Delta Nu Installed
A sunshiny, warm spring morning greeted Michigan Alpha Sigma Alphas as they gathered in Flint, Michigan, on May 10, 1975, to participate in the Installation of Delta Nu Chapter at General Motors Institute. The weekend's activities culminated over a year and a half of work and preparation since Alpha Sigma local sorority, the first officially recognized sorority at GMI, became a colony of Alpha Sigma Alpha. Delta Nu members from both Section A and B greeted the National Installing Team on Friday evening as they found their ways to Flint from Denver, Chicago and Florida to lend support to Field Representatives Ms. Diane Yencic and Ms. Marsha Oliverio, who had arrived earlier in the week to help finalize the plans for the weekend. On Saturday morning collegiate members from Beta Theta, Central Michigan University, Beta Psi, Western Michigan University, and Gamma Mu, Adrian College, joined the field representatives and the installing team members, Mrs. George Gatseos, National Vice President of Development; Mrs. Robert Richardson, National Ritual Chairman; and Ms. Barbara Johnston, Province VI Director, for the initiation service and chapter installation in the Campus Center. Charter members and pledges are Section A: Sharon L. Friend, Patricia Clawson, Maryellen Keil, Julia Knight, Robin D. Lyon, Shirley A. Smith, Carol L. Tozer, Joellyn K. Weaver; Section B: Kathryn Ann Deane, Patricia M. Hughey, Melanie Ann Lanyi, Rebecca S. Mitchell, Michele L. Pawlowski, Pamela M. 2
Petta, Suzanne K. Peters, Cynthia A. Peterson, Deborah A. Rough, Deborah C. Rindfuss, Cynthia C. Chamiok, Carol A. VanDeVort, Sandra K. Huelsman, Julie A. Beauchamp and Joayne M. Fleming. The chapter's alumnae member Joan E. Nelson was initiated in July. After the morning ceremonies, the traditional White Luncheon was held at El Rancho Restaurant. The Delta Nus and their guests were honored to have Dean Carnagay, Dean of Students at G.M.I., as their guest speaker, and he joined in the oohs and aahs over the many beautiful gifts from the National Council, coUegiate and alumnae chapters, and individuals who had aided Delta Nu Colony. Retiring President of Section B, Ms. Deborah Rough and Presidents-Elect Ms. Joellyn Weaver, Section A, and Ms. Becky Mitchell, Section B, shared the pleasures of opening these gifts. The Delta Nus showed their appreciation too with special charms to their chapter adviser, Ms. Marsha Brown (B'I') and the National Installing Team and Field Representatives. After the luncheon the Delta Nus greeted their parents, representatives from the other campus fraternities and sorority, campus organizations, faculty members and college administration and visiting collegiate and alumnae members at a reception held at the Campus Center. The Delta Nus' parents compared notes on their trips to Flint for the occasion, and they had plenty to talk about as they viewed the display of gifts and greetings which the Delta Nus had received.

Through her participation in Panhellenic Council, Student Senate, and Student Activities Board, Donna has become well-known on campus for her sense of humor and winning personality. She is a physical education major who stays on the Dean's List even though she participates in interscholastic field hockey and interscholastic volleyball and finds time to work for the bloodmobile, Muscular Dystrophy Drive, and Multiple Sclerosis Marathon. Donna's chapter reports that Donna is someone who gives her all to everything she undertakes and that her own high standards reflect in everything she undertakes.
Sally spoke the following words to Beta Kappa rushees, and her isters feel they describe the attitude and spirit which Sally has. "Although the pearl is perfect, we are not. We of Alpha Sigma Alpha proudly wear the pearl in our pin to remind us that perfection is ever within our reach and always worth striving for."

Fidelity implies devotion and unswerving loyalty and allegiance. This is what Sally Armstrong has given to Alpha Sigma Alpha as a Beta Kappa at Western Illinois University. Sally has been chairman of several projects for Beta Kappa, but her most noted contributions took place during her term as chapter president. Under her guidance the executive board became an effective governing body initiating needed changes in the chapter. As the Beta Kappa girls put it: "As a leader Sally was able to be strong, not forceful; give suggestions, not orders; and discuss, not tell." A Dean's List student, Sally is majoring in speech pathology and spends many hours working with persons in a speech clinic.
The 1975 recipient of the Ideal Pledge Awarci is Cindy Boulton, Beta Nu Chapter, Murray (Kentucky) State College. The Beta Nus report that Cindy, or "Bo" as they call her, is always lifting someone's spirit by giving a card, a flower, or just a smile. As song leader for her chapter, and with the aid of her guitar, Cindy teaches the members a new song each week. Many of the songs she writes herself. She also wrote her pledge class skit and song. Cindy makes good grades for a pre-med major. She is a very enthusiastic, creative person who personifies Alpha Sigma Alpha. SCHOLASTIC ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Kathy is a combination of ability, beauty, energy, and leadership. The list of honors she has earned, dating back to high school, is too lengthy to include in this account. She maintains an almost straight A average, yet she spends considerable time working at the SMSU Child Care Center. She has won many academic and citizenship awards during high school and college. On the other hand, she has been a varsity cheerleader and a beauty queen. In spite of all her accomplishments, she has an unassuming attitude. She sums up the evaluation of herself in these words, "My own personal goals involving happiness, good health, optimism, and faith in God have given me much more patience with those who are younger, less experienced, and less fortunate than I, and primarily those who are handicapped. Probably that is the reason why I would like to work with children, and at a crippled children's center."

New York, Dayton, Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania were in Flint for the weekend. One family even flew to Flint in their homemade plane from Pennsylvania. The weekend was capped with the formal banquet held at the Sheraton Inn. Retiring President Debbie Rough served as toastmistress for the evening. The traditional toasts to the new chapter were given by Ms. Nancy Stalker, President of Gamma Mu Chapter, representing all collegians with the toast to "Aspire"; Ms. Marsha Brown, President of the Flint Alumnae Chapter and Chapter Adviser, representing all alumnae with the toast to "Seek"; and Mrs. Robert Richardson, National Ritual Chairman, representing the National Officers with the toast to "Attain." Alpha Sigma Alpha was honored to have Mr. Richard Warmbold, Associate Dean of Students-Services as the speaker for the evening. Mr. Warmbold traced the contribution of Greek letter organization to GMI and pointed to areas where they will continue to contribute. He noted this was especially true for sororities and A2.A as they accept their new position at GMI. Delta Nu's charter members were introduced and presented with individual mementos by Ms. Barbara Johnston, Installing Officer. Mrs. Gatseos also took advantage of the occasion to recognize the newly formed Flint Area Alumnae Chapter. To climax the evening Mrs. Gatseos presented the chapter gavel to Ms. Joellyn Weaver, Section A President, and the charter was presented to Ms. Debbie Rough. Installation weekend drew to a close as the visiting A2.As and guests turned toward home on Sunday morning after worship services and a brunch.

National Council Repo rt The National Council met at Headquarters, Springfield, Missouri, June 27-29, to review the year just passed and to plan in detail for the coming year. Specific plans were voted on regarding the Seventy-fifth Diamond Anniversary Convention which will be held in Williamsburg, Virginia, June 27-July l, 1976. Plans were made to carry out the National Officer/Chapter Involvement Program, which will go into effect this fall, as a way to foster better communications between the chapters and National. Officers will conduct chapter inspections rather than using the Field Representative program this year. A Chapter Exchange Program is also being developed for use during the second half of the year. The decision to have the Alpha Sigma Alpha History include the coming Anniversary Celebration was made by the Council. The National Philanthropy was reviewed in great detail to determine how and where Mental Retardation could be best served by Alpha Sigma Alpha. Materials concerning this will be mailed to the chapters directly from the Phil-
anthropic Chairman this fall with some exciting projects coming into action for our members. The installation of Delta Xi, Dallas Baptist College, Dallas, Texas, was finalized, as well as plans for extension at several new locations. The report of the "Aims and Objectives Committee" was presented for evaluation and action was authorized in the areas of finance, PHOENIX, leadership, pledge education, communications, and public relations. Chapters were reviewed in specific detail, and individual letters were sent to each chapter to communicate what the National Council defined as each chapter's needs for 1975-1976. The Alumnae Program was studied, and it was decided to work to involve more alumnae in Alpha Sigma Alpha activities on the local and National level. The conclusion was that the strength of the sorority's future is vested in alumnae involvement and leadership. The meeting concluded with the goal to make membership reach higher numbers than ever before by unifying the National Organization with its Collegians and Alumnae for a 75th Anniversary to top all.

colleg路iate corner Debra Bukas, Editor
For most collegians, autumn usually represents a "new year" in its fullest sense. New classes, new roommates, new professors and new friends all add to the excitement and anticipation of a new school year. But the new year also carries with it many elements of tradition. There are still classes to attend, papers to write, books to read, reports to be given. For an Alpha collegian, there are weekly meetings, socials, Homecoming, and of course the commemoration of Founders' Day. Founders' Day is probably the most important event of the year for all Alpha members. As Diane Martin, BET A PHI Collegiate Editor, stated, "For us, it is an opportunity to reflect individually on what Alpha Sigma Alpha really meanswhat it represents. We all get involved in the daily rushes of claslies, homework, meetings, etc., and take for granted the promises we've made through the bond of sisterhood we all share. Founders' Day is, therefore, our day to individually take inventory, so to speak, and put into perspective all the years of hard work and determination that has pulled Alpha Sigma Alpha together." Collegiate chapters commemorate Founders' Day in a variety of ways, all of which include the Founders' Day ceremony. For many chapters, the commemoration includes the entire day or evening. ALPHAS, for example, hold a luncheon along with the Founders' Day ceremony. ALPHA BET A recognizes the day with a banquet which includes a speaker and entertainment by their pledges. Parents are included in ALPHA GAMMA's celebration. They chose this day to honor their fathers in particular. Members and their parents attend church together and share a meal in a university dining hall. After holding the ceremony for members, they host a social in the chapter room for parents and friends. EPSILON EPSILONS celebrate with an Alumnae Salad Supper. Each alumna brings a salad dish. The ceremony is held, and after dinner, the pledges provide entertainment. At this time, honors are presented to outstanding alumnae who have been especially helpful to Epsilon Epsilon or have served Alpha Sigma Alpha for numerous years. The seniors are also honored and the Outstanding Senior Award is presented. Every year the ETA ETAS view a skit presented by their pledges. Using the information given in Encounter, the pledges present their idea of how the Founders established Alpha Sigma Alpha. It proves to be instructive for members as well as pledges. PHI PHIS hold a tea for collegiate members, alumnae, Mother Patronesses and delegates from other sororities on campus. The evening is devoted to renewing friendships with alumnae and Mother Patronesses and includes quite a bit of Alpha singing. Because of rising prices, the BETA EPSILONS have changed a restaurant banquet to a spaghetti dinner in the chapter room. BETA MUS hold a short meeting and sing songs, while BETA RHOS hold a "fireside" with entertainment provided by their pledges.
BETA SIGMAS celebrate Founders' Day with alumnae and a social get-together while BET A PHIS extend an open invitation to Wisconsin chapters for the ceremony they hold. Variety from year to year best describes BETA PSI's commemoration of Founders' Day- from planting a tree (as the tree grows so does Beta Psi) to a luncheon with alumnae. After holding the Founders' Day ceremony, GAMMA ZETAS have an open house and a tea for parents, faculty and other Greeks on campus. GAMMA ETAS celebrate with a dinner. Each pledge class prepares two dishes, and after the feasting and ceremony, the evening ends with a friendship circle.
Delta Lambda's first place egg throwing team included Carol Bertoldi, Mary Don Hege, Patty Tennyson and Lynne D obler
GAMMA lOT AS hold a formal cocktail party for members and dates while GAMMA LAMBDA pledges give a special party for the members. GAMMA MUS host a dinner for Founders' Day in a room reserved in the college dining hall. Members of GAMMA XI hold a party with alumnae at their adviser's home. "Alpha" games are played, refreshments served, and each collegian receives a big sister from the alumnae. GAMMA OMICRONS hold a semiformal dinner with dates while GAMMA OMEGAS celebrate with a skit depicting the founding of Alpha Sigma Alpha. At DELTA ETA, each member prepares a luncheon dish and two members who live close to campus are turkey chefs for the luncheon. Later the pledges sponsor a party and give the members a special gift to commemorate the day. A pot luck dinner for members, parents and alumnae is sponsored by the DELTA KAPPAS. After dinner, a rush skit provides the entertainment. DELTA LAMBDAS celebrated Founders' Day with BETA IOTA at a banquet. Pledge classes from both chapters entertained the members with skits. DELTA NUS-SECTION B celebrated their first Founders' Day with a dinner.
Some hints given by various chapters for making the Founders' Day ceremony more meaningful were making use of candlelight, letting sisters choose some personal poetry to include in the ceremony, and closing the ceremony with a friendship circle. However, special meaning comes from each member. As Pam Darnell, PHI PHI Collegiate Editor, said, "I think it's each and every member's responsibility to make the day meaningful for her-just putting your heart into it." With the corning of autumn and beginning of classes, our collegians find that open books are a necessity. To encourage high scholarship, collegiate scholarship chairmen provide extra motivation and rewards. At ALPHA, ALPHA BETA and BETA SIGMA a "study-buddy" dinner is held at the end of each semester. The members with the lowest averages buy dinner for the members with the highest averages. ALPHA ALPHAS are assigned "study-buddies," and every quarter at a scholarship banquet, members are honored for their academic achievement. ALPHA GAMMAS hold a study in their chapter room three nights a week. Pledges attend four hours a week and members for one hour a week. A steak dinner is the incentive used by EPSILON EPISLONS, ETA ETAS, BETA RHOS and BETA PHIS. Members with a 3.0 (or better) GPA are treated to steak, while members with a lower GPA are given hamburgers or beans. Other added incentives come from the BETA EPSILONS. Mugs are given to members who obtain a 2.8 GPA or better. If the member maintains that average for two consecutive semesters, she can keep the mug. Each year an award is given to the big sis-little sis combination with the highest average, and the senior with the highest average receives a bracelet. Besides these incentives, a $50 scholarship is given each year by the chapter to a deserving member. BET A MUS announce scholarships at their Parent-Daughter Banquet while BETA SIGMAS give awards to the member and pledge with the highest GPA and to the member with the most improved GPA. On Morns' Day, the BETA PSIS present scholarship awards, and during the year, study get-togethers are held. GAMMA ETAS who make Dean's List are given a special door decoration, and members who achieve a 4.0 are given a rose. Members who receive less than a 2.0 are given a tutor, and if necessary, twc, study hours every night. Competing for the City Panhellenic Scholarship Award adds incentive to GAMMA IOTA'S scholarship program. GAMMA LAMBDAS present awards to members with the highest or most improved GPA and GAMMA MUS post members' majors, so that other members can contact them for help if necessary. GAMMA XIS have an academic big sis for each pledge while DELTA EPSILON members with less than a 2.0 average are restricted from sorority social functions until the average is raised. DELTA ETAS have a sorority resource center of notes and books and their scholarship chairman arranges for tutoring when necessary. DELTA KAPPAS with high averages receive chapter awards. At meeting roll call, each DELTA LAMBDA is required to tell how many class cuts she had the previous week. At the end of the quarter, cuts are tallied and the member with the most cuts treats the member with the least cuts to dinner. DELTA NV-SECTION B scholarship chairman arranges for tutoring services when necessary. Added reward for good scholarship comes in the form of trophies for several chapters. PHI PHI, for example, has received the Scholarship Trophy given by
Beta Rho pledges at their pledge banquet
the college to the Greek women's organization with the highest GPA for fifteen consecutive years. They don't want to let it go! GAMMA OMICRONS and DELTA EPSILONS find competing for Panhellenic Scholarship trophies helpful in maintaining grades. These scholarship programs seem to work very well as many collegians were recognized for high academic achievement during 1975. Outstanding ALPHAS included Mary Hinton, three honorary fraternities; Jean Drum, Kappa Omicron Phi; and Janet Whitten, freshman honorary fraternity. Cindy Cravens, ALPHA ALPHA, received the chapter's Outstanding Scholarship Award. Highest Member GPA for ETA ETA Chapter went to Gale Russell, while Teresa McLean received the Most Improved GPA award and Vicki Vaughn the Highest Pledge GPA. BETA RHOS are proud of Carol Lambert, Delta Psi Kappa; Rosi Morino, Phi Kappa Phi; Debbie Shane, Phi Kappa Phi, Mortarboard, and Scholarship Achievement Award. The Panhellenic Scholarship was awarded to Sue Allen, GAMMA IOTA, and Valerie Chamberlain received a MaslandDuran Scholarship. GAMMA MUS Sharon Stout and Vicki Cunningham were initiated into Kappa Delta Pi ; LuAnn Smoker was initiated into Alpha Chi National Scholastic Honor Society; and Sue Spreull obtained membership in Pi Delta Phi. DELTA LAMBDAS are very proud of Donna Dilalla, past chapter president, who received the Mary Turner Gallagher Scholarship. Academics are not the only activities for our collegians, however. Collegiate chapters evidence a wide range of activities. At a craft party, ALPHA ALPHAS made tray decorations for a local rest horne. They also raised money for the mentally retarded with a hot pretzel booth. BET A EPSILONS held a summer reunion and rush workshop, while BETA PIS held a tea for their mothers. A showcase of Alpha Sigma Alpha trinkets and decorations was displayed and entertainment consisted of a homemade movie and segments from a rush party. During Greek Weekend, they tied for the first place trophy. BET A RHOS held a spaghetti dinner as a fund raiser. Later, they sold candy bars with the proceeds going to a foundation for brain surgery, and money collected from pop lids was donated to Muscular Dystrophy research. Along with this, they received third place in volleyball and softball tournaments and first place in an FlO volleyball tournament. GAMMA ZETAS helped with South-
east Arkansas' Special Olympics, while GAMMA lOTAS learned sign language from deaf children on a one-toone basis. A summer workshop was held by GAMMA PSIS to prepare for a large fall pledge class. Amidst all of the activity, individual honors abounded in our collegiate chapters. Sandra Hubbard, ALPHA, was chosen Sweetheart of Lambda Chi Alpha at Hampton-Sidney College and Sandy Williams was a finalist in the Miss Longwood Pageant. ALPHA ALPHA Laura Lutz was nominated for the Elizabeth Bird Small Award while Margo Kalcic was nominated for the Frost Fidelity Award. BETH PI chapter chose Ronnie Bowling as their Sweetheart while BETA RHOS named Dennis Dudzick, husband of their past chapter president, as their Alpha S:gma Alpha Sweetheart. Other BETA RHOS received special recognition: Sue Allen, Best Pledge-Spring '75; Jan Birch, Best Pledge-Fall '74; Diane Cook, Sigma Chi Sweetheart; Karen Eurich, Jazz Ensemble Vocalist; Holly Foiles, Phi Sigma Epsilon Sweetheart; Annie Liemetter, Panhellenic treasurer; and Barb Janszen, dramatic productions. Several members made the porn porn squad including Lynette Baker, Carol Lambert, Marilyn Ulvestad and Lynn Irving.

Spencer received the nomination for the Frost Fidelity Award. The GAMMA MUS also honored Susan Wells for her outstanding Alpha spirit. They established a Susan Wells Spirit Award. Denise Novak was awarded the Individual Intramural Award for her outstanding participation in intramurals. DELTA EPSILONS are proud of Phyllis Gerberich who was chosen Outstanding Greek Woman, and Sue Oravec, Tau Kappa Epsilon Sweetheart. The wide range of chapter activities cannot always be met by every chapter member. For this reason, most collegiate chapter Standards Boards review absence excuses for activities and meetings. Along with this, the Standards Boards of our collegiate chapters perform many functions . Traditional functions include reviewing special status requests, making arrangements for payment of dues and fines, levying fines for unexcused absences and setting standards for scholastic and social behavior. However, most collegiate Standards Boards are also functi oning as chapter spirit boosters. At EPSILON EPISLON, for example, the Standards Board selects a member who has exhibited outstanding service to the chapter and presents her with the "Apple of the Month" Award. The PHI PHI Standards Board has developed a point system with which a member can make up an unexcused absence by working for the chapter. The Board also works with the Membership Director in planning the p ledge program. BETA EPSILONS find notes from their Standards Board that motivate interest or express appreciation. Along with other responsibilities, BETA PSI's Standards Board serves as a sounding board for new chapter activity plans. GAMMA ETA's Standards Board sends congratulatory and good luck notes to members when the occasion arises. Choosing a sister-of-the-month and making "cheer up" cards are two added responsibilities of GAMMA MU's Standards Board. The DELTA EPSILON Standards Board helps publish the chapter newsletter and plans fund raisers. A point system has been established by DELTA LAMBDA's Standards Board. DELTA NV- SECTION B's Standards Board conducts a "Secret Sis" program and plans their sectional Birthday Party. With all of the spirit generated by collegiate Standards Boards, this should prove to be an exciting year for all Alphas!

Members also contributed decorative items to a local nursing home and gave cleaning items to a local Indian counselor who works with low-income Indian families who needed to improve their living conditions. WASHINGTON, D.C. alums are celebrating the summer with travel and barbecued chicken. Louise Pierson Johnson BOM is taking a year's leave of absence from her position with the Maryland School for the Deaf and has gone to Juneau, Alaska where she plans to continue her work in special therapy with children. A very special guest at the D.C. alums' chicken barbecue was Mrs. Lena Beers, of Muskogee, Oklahoma and mother of former president Lois A. Beers Br. In 1938 the Beta Gamma chapter at Northeastern State University, Tahlequah, Oklahoma awarded Mrs. Beers the Mother-Patroness badge. She reared two daughters (both of whom are Alpha Sigs) and having attained the great age of ninety, she has concluded that each person sets her (or his) own pace for living in light of what they interpret as their commitments and goals.
