One Alpha's Opinion Our greatest resource-you! by Rosemary Carucci Goss National President The note from the editor in the Winter Phoenix requesting articles for One Alpha 's Opinion prompted me to share with you my ideas on Alpha Sigma Alpha 's greatest resource-you! Earlier this year I was attending th e state meeting of the Virginia Home Economic Association when I met an AEA collegian on the elevator. As the two of us chatted, another woman on the elevator said , " Oh , you are an Alpha Sigma Alpha , I am an Alpha Sigma Tau ." Now this woman is a dynamic " mover and shaker," and my immediate thought was, " If AST only knew about her, they would have her involved in some type of work for the sorority." As I thought about this AST , I also remembered other women , like the Tri -Sigma doctoral student

in my department at Virginia Tech, who have much to offer their sororities. Likewise, there are probably many talented Alpha Sigma Alphas out there who have much to offer this sorority. But the question is: How do we find these talented AEA? To determine who and where these talented A'f.As are, I am beginning an " AEA Resource Bank," which we will use in locating women with unique talents for unique needs. Think about your talents and ability to contribute. Everyone is busy with school , jobs and families, but there are many ways to be of service to Alpha Sigma Alpha without making long-term commitments. For example, . last year I met Robin Styles during a visit to Gamma Iota at Rochester Institute of Technology. A graphics arts major, Robin has since designed two

newsletter mastheads for AEA. More recently, I have read about an Alpha from Longwood College, Anna Marshall-Baker. For her master's thesis, Anna developed a "visual stimulation device" for use in incubators for pre-term infants. Her exciting research is unique for interior designers and would make an excellent article for The Phoenix. These are just two examples that illustrate how you might share your talents with AEA. Take time today to complete the form below. Add additional areas that are not listed-you may be able to help in ways that no one has thought of before. If you don't want to cut up your Phoenix, simply print or type the information on a piece of paper or postcard and mail it to me, I'll be waiting . Let's make use of our greatest resource-you! * -tr

AEA-50 years. at Ball State by Carmine Alvey McConnell Fifty years on Ball State University campus for Chi Chi Chapter has brought many challenges as well as pleasures . On Oct . 11, 1986, Chi Chi Chapter will celebrate 50 years on Ball State campus in Muncie, IN. Alumnae from all over the state and country will attend a luncheon on that date. Originally, Ch i Chi Chapter was installed in 1928 at Teachers Col lege of Ind ianapolis . The local group had been called Phi Delta Psi . Mary Turner Gallagher served as advisor and Helen Selvage Noblitt was the alumnae representative . On June 1931 , Teachers College of Indianapolis became a part of Butler University. Members of Chi Chi Chapter petitioned National Council for a period of inactivity until a suitable campus could be found for their beloved Chi Chi . In April 1936, Sigma Alpha Sigma . a local sorority at Ball State College, petitioned for mem bership in Alpha Sigma Alpha . The chapter was installed on Dec . 12, 1936, by National President Evely n Bell in the lounge of the newly

Today there are 11 National Panhellenic Conference sororities and two others. In 1936, Ball State was a teach ers college with courses in premed and pre-law. Today , Ball State, which became a university in 1965, comprises six colleges . The current enrollment of 18,000 has grown from the 1 ,200 in 1936. The faculty, which numbered 65 in 1936, has grown to over 800 . When Chi Chi was installed, there were no provisions for meeting places, except in classrooms . Then , in 1956, Woodworth resi dence hall was built. Sorority suites were provided in various wings of the building . Nancy Dickson served as first suite chairman. This gave the sorority a regular place for business meetings and rituals as well as an informal area to meet and get better acquainted with other members and guests. A small kitchen area provides a place to prepare snacks or refresh-

Today , there are 52 active chapters, as well as 75 alum nae chapters. Early activ it ies included the ater parties , benefit bridge , knit squares for Bundles fo r Britain (during WWII) , record hops as money making projects, rummage sales , jewelry cleaning projects and intramurals. Since 1952, when the first Indiana State Day was held at the Wash ington Hotel in Indianapolis, Ch i Chi has participated every year, either by attend ing or serving as host chapter. In 1966, Jan Schurr Hassell , a Chi Chi member, was killed in an auto accident. A mem o ri al fund was established by he r mother and husband. The Muncie alumnae group contributes a s needed .

Chi Chi members have been active participants in many organ izations on campus , includin g Student Leadership Development Board, Student Orientation Corps , residence hall officers, residence hall staff, admission coordinating team, Order of Omega , Blue Key and Gold Key. The chapter has participated in and won many campus competitions over the years, including fi rst place for most money cont ributed to Campus Chest (philanthropic), Women's Division of Spring Sing and Inter-fraternity and Sorority Sing , pit decorating for Lambda Ch i Alpha Bike-a-Thon , women's division of Bike-a-Thon, Theta Xi Tug of War (three years), Variety Show, Delta Tau Delta and Alpha Chi Omega Watermelon Bust and Chi Omega Chariot Race. Nearly every year, Alpha Sigma Alpha is represented at the London Center of Ball State for one qua rter. These students study and attend plays, visit a rt museums and go on field trips to Scotland and Ireland. The last three weeks of the quarter are spent traveling in France, Germany and Italy. Special Olympics reg ional activities are held in Muncie in May each year. Chi Chi members co ntribute money as well as assist in the swim and track meets as chee r groups and huggers. Other philanthropic activities have include d

holiday food baskets, caroling at nursing homes and parties at Newcastle School for the Retarded. Local alumnae have played an important role in the history of the chap t er. Founders ' Day is an annual joint event . The Muncie Alumnae Chapter always gives a party for the pledges. And, later in the yea r, Muncie and Anderson alumnae chapters combine efforts for a party for the seniors. At that time, the seniors are inducted into alumnae membersh ip in a special ceremony. The Indianapolis Alumnae Chapter contributes financially to the chapter annually. Much credit must be given to those Chi Chi members who founded Chi Chi in 1928 and then to charter members of the Ball State chapter in 1936 . For 50 years the Chi Chi Chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha has served the commun ity and the campus of Ball State University. As the 'ladybugs' continue to be of service to their sorority, school and communities, they take t he four Alpha Sigma Alpha a ims of physical , social , intellectual and spiritual and add to them a goal of self-improvement. To grow as a member of Chi Chi Chapter is not only a process but a privilege. -t< -t<

Along with sev· eral hundred sorority women, over forty AEA alumnae and collegians attended to honor Ellen and her achievements as a Pa nhellenic del· egate for six years and her fourth year on the boa rd . Ellen's speech on "A Sorority for All Seasons" was meaningful and inspiring to young and old. Ellen was a collegian in Beta Lambda Chapter at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. She held several offices, including helping plan the deco r fo r the new Greek dorm. Afte r graduat ing with a degree in business education, El· len spent a yea r traveli ng as a field representative for the sorority, a year she enjoyed very much. She served as a province director for six years and as president of the Tulsa alumnae. S ince moving to Denver seven years ago , Ellen has been an integral part of the alum· nae chapter. She was pleased to be part of the first quilting group for the bedspreads sewn for National Headquarters by ·alumnae nation· wide. Ellen's experiences as a Panhel· lenic delegate and boa rd member have become an important part of her life. "The camarderie and ex· tension of sisterhood in our Pan· hellenic is a fulfill ing experience that I delight in. The o rganization works because ever yone in it works, and no one is left holding the bag," says Ellen. The Denver Area Panhellenic is the oldest continu ing city Panhel· lenic , sustaining business meet· ings and pertinent activities for its members for 78 years. Each year they raise $2,000 for scholarships for Greek women o n Colorado campuses. They are al so proud to have 21 of the NPC soro rities rep· resented in t he group.

Challenges, joys of alumnae membership The Dallas Alumnae Chapter was begun by Evelyn Songe·Scott in 1954 , in search of a dult communication, on moving to Dal· las from Shreveport, LA. She al so had founded a chapter there , for the same reasons. Being an Air Force wife, left with five children under the age of sev· en and a husband off fighting the Korean War, she put an ad in the local paper for Alpha Sigs. Many responded to her plea . She even found some women from her colle·

giate chapter, Beta Zeta, in Lafa· yette, LA. "Starting an alumnae chapter is the most satisfying of all possible endeavors. Rewards come thick and fast in the finding of new and old Alpha Sigs, new in the soror· ity, old in age and loyalty to the pledge made in long ago college days," states Evelyn. She doesn 't, however, take the credit for the present alumnae chapter in Dallas. The group in 1954 was too diverse in age, geo· graphical location , etc. to have more than one beautiful luncheon , make many big plans, keep up the contacts through the telephone and keep up the desire for an alumnae group. It took Norma Hassler, LaQuita Lehman Carroth· ers and Jan Butler Ellis to start up the good work again , using the original charter, which Evelyn had carefully stored in the proverbial hall closet. Thanks to their hard work, the group was re·organized in 1970. A college chapter was founded at Dallas Baptist College , and the alumnae had fun taking part in rush , games and parties with the college women . As they gradua· ted , there was good new blood for the alumnae chapter. After a Beta Zeta reunion of Evelyn and seven other " girls" (now grandmothers) at the World's Fair in New Orleans in 1984, Lau· ra Nelle McElroy Fruge wrote " Wasn 't there a feeling of love flo wi ng between , among , around us?" Evelyn agrees, "There was, in· deed , a strc;mg feeling of love flow· ing , like the rivers of the World Fair theme. The love of Alpha Sigs for each other , and for our sorori· ty , t hro ug h 40 years of liv ing our creed . We filled our days, we found beauty , we knew faith , and we found peace. The creed in Alpha Sigma Alpha, a belief in Life it· self, sustained us , kept us together through letters during all those years, as it shall continue to do -tr for all time. " -tr

Stars In Our Crown In memory of Jackie When she walked into the Beta Delta Chapter room in 1969, it seem ed only natural that Jackie would become a member of a soro rity with high ideals and aspirat ions. She was tall. attractive and intelligent. She was a dedicated Christian with a deep concern for those less fortunate. She had a quick , dry wit and a love for ani mals, especially horses. At a time when the only women in law enforcement were meter ma ids and secretaries, Jackie an nounced that she wanted to be a pol ice officer. No one doubted that she would . It was no surprise that she became an active part of AEA. She participated in intramurals, served as spirit chairman , helped to plan and construct floats and led Beta Delta through a successful rush in the fall of 1971. During her last year at the Unive rsity of Southern Mississippi Jackie served as second vice presi dent . It was that year that Jackie Dole became USM's first female g raduate of the School of Law Enforcement. Soon she would become Hattiesburg 's first female officer.

Jackie was a street cop! In the local schools, the kids talked of the " tough, white woman on the police force. " At ball games, she'd be leaning against the stadium , gun on hip-just like any other cop except for the feminine features and the blond hair blowing in the breeze. In the next 11 years , Jackie began to work closely with the youth court and with victims of sexual assault. School kids talked of the " officer who helped them " and " the lady who gave them things at Christmas. " She married Captain Charlie Sherill and became the proud mother of Erica , 3, and Robert, 1. Her hard work and dedication were rewarded when she was promoted to sergeant ' and became Hattiesburg' s first femal~ detective. No one was surprised . They had expected it. But on Dec . 31 , 1984, there was surprise and shock. Helping to serve a warrant , Jackie Sherrill was struck in the heart by a single shot. At the age of 33 she was gone-leaving her family and community stunned . How does one measure a life of 33 years? In accomplishments: first female officer, first female detective , first female in charge of rape cases, founder of the rape crisis center and Officer of the Year. In tributes: thousands of flowers, a procession of over 100 police cars, hundreds of teary officers standing for a 21 gun salute and the community center named the Jackie Dole Sherrill Center. Jackie asked for no special favors and received none . She earned the respect and love of fellow officers and a community . Jack ie gav e f ull m easure in all th ings, but most of all Jac kie loved life and joyously li ved each da y to its ultimate. It was fitt ing that an I: sister sang " Lord , Make M e an Instrument of T hy Peace" at t he fu nera l of t he peace o fficer. * *

Making a difference Ursula Jones {B~) is leaving her mark on the community of Hatties路 burg , MS , in so many ways , it is difficult to know where to start. As a health and drug education teacher for the Hattiesburg public Schools, she is known for her rapport with students and helping them develop their own value systems about drugs and alcohol. Her masters degree in health, physical education and recreation , her background as an Emergency Medical Technician and her own childhood experiences merge into an effective, compassionate teaching style that her fifth and sixth grade students can 't help but respond to. Parents and school ad路 ministrators also see the value in this program . When the state cut all funding for drug education pro路 grams, the local school board decided to finance it themselves . But this is only one part of Ursula 's involvement with her commu nity. She has been a charter and active member of the Hattiesburg Historical Society, serving on the board and in several offices. She helped to save thousands of pho路 tos and negatives that were about to be destroyed in the remodeling

In October of . 1982, Nancy L. Riti (KK) attended a seminar at her alma mater , Temple University. She had an hour to spare and decided to look up the women of her sorority chapter, Kappa Kappa. Two pledges were in the chapter room when she arrived. They were amazed and delighted to see an alumna return. "Look around ," one said. "See if there is anything here with your name on it. " "Oh, I doubt it," Nancy replied. But then she spotted the pledge paddle of 1953, and the names of her pledge sisters. It was a thrill! "Here I am! " Nancy exclaimed to the girls. "Wow, 30 years next year. You ought to have a reunion ," one of the pledges remarked . "That's a great idea . I'll have to give that some special thought," Nancy replied. Christmas season rolled around and on several of the cards from her sorority friends there were words like, "30 years will be coming up next year. Let's have a reunion ." More encouragement. Several Kappa Kappa members live in the area where Nancy lives, and she got in touch with them. They put their heads together and agreed: there should be a reunion. It also would be Temple University's centennial year and groups were being urged to do something special. They decided who would be responsible for typing letters, who would go to the alumni records office and delve into the records for addresses, who would get the names from yearbooks, etc. The women decided to invite the sisters who were three years ahead of them , their class of 1954, and the three years behind them . Their efforts covered a seven-year span. In the planning , they decided to

After a year in West Africa , Betty Barnes (NN) was able to join the alumnae for a luncheon in November at Gibby's Restaurant. She shared her experiences at the February meeting. Lisa Guariglia (BN) will be one of the models at the Panhellenic fashion show and luncheon, which benefits the Panhellenic scholarship fund. Ft.
