THE ANCHOR OF ALPHA SIGMA TAU The Seventh National Convention
H E convention program was so full that almost every possible minute was taken up with either business meetings or social affairs. Many delegates had little fre e time to get away from headquarters. It vvas fortunate, indeed, that the Hotel Chase was such a clelighftul place to be in and that the social affair were so intere ting. The Formal Openi ng, an innovation, was a ve ry dignified beginning for our activities. There were devotion led by Miss Audrey Lucke, chaplain ; a welcome by Mi ss Loi s Hoynck, convention chairman ; and replies by the four di strict presidents, Miss Dorothy tacller, Miss Edith Paul , Miss Mary Alice Seller and M is Romaine Kanode who represented Mrs. Meade McNeill. Mrs. Walter C. G. Kirchner , one of the patronesses of Pi Chapter, gave an inspirational talk on sorority ideals. The meeting was pleasantly entertained by Mr. Robert Van Meter, pianist, who played " Nocturn e" and " Berceuse" by Chopin, and " Romance" by ibelius. On the tour of the city many interesting places in t. Louis were visited. At the Jefferson Memorial , Art Museum and the New Cathedral the girl s left the busses for a few moments and were, of course, very much thrilled with the beautiful things they saw. The informal party was in the nature of a carnival with attractive booths to entice the visitors to spend their " mills." There were clog racing, dart throwing, a portrait studio , a fi sh pond where small green flashlights were given as favors, and many other fascinatincr game . After prizes were given to the girls who had made the most money, a skit was given by each of the four distri cts. On the second clay the most important affairs were held. At the formal banquet the candlelight service was used very effectively. Elizabeth Wilson conducted the ceremony of lighting small individual candles for each group of Alpha Sigma Tau, beginning with the national officers, then proceeding through the faculty advi sers, patronesses, members of each alumnre chapter, each collegiate chapter, and the pledges. After a welcome by Miss Ruth Priebe, Pi chapter president, Miss Dorothy Stadler gave a short talk. Then the National President presented the awards. Theta chapter won the scholarship cup, and Jeanne Garner, Pi, was given a ring with the sorority crest on it for having the highe t grades in the whole sorority. Zeta Tau of the collegiate chapter had the best scrapbook, and the Buffalo and Bluefield chapter tied for first place for the be t alumnre scrap-book. Margaret Pollack received an award for _ubmitting the best name for the convention paper, the Alp!ta ig-nal. Th " da orton . ward for lumn ~ Achievement" wa e tabli h d, but
as yet it has not been given to any member. Each person at the banquet received a compact as a favor from Burr, Patterson and Auld; and Mi ss Lois Hoynck was presented with a small gift from the national organization and from the St. Louis alumnre chapter for her work as Convention Chairman. After the banquet the girls attended the Municipal Opera in Forest Park, where they saw " Victoria and Her Hussar. " The girls were unanimous in their praise of the magnificent outdoor background, the lovely stage sets, scintillating colors, catchy tunes, and interesting dancing routines. The meeting on Thursday morning was addressed by Dr. Henry ]. Gerling, Superintendent of Instruction of the St. Louis Public Schools. His subject was "The Social Values of a College Education. " At noon on Friday each district held a special luncheon at which they planned the time and place of their meeting in 1940. After the last busin ess meeting at which the Pi chapter held a formal pledging and initiation, and two new national officers were installed, there was a fare\Yell tea to close this thrilling and successful convention in St. Loui s.

No representative was present from Alpha active chapter. Inactive chapters, Beta, Gamma, Kappa, and Xi were not represented at this meeting. The Plan of Procedure for Alumnc.e Representatives as outlined in the Handbook for Chapt er Officers, M arclt 1939, on pages 11, 12", and 13, was the basis for the bu ines of the afternoon. Each point was thoroughly discussed and the following resolutions were unanimously adopted by the alumnc.e representatives. The first topic considered was Directory (Card Index ), point I , page 11 of Handbo ok. It was moved by Ester Griffith, and seconded by Romaine Kanode that Alpha Sigma Tau adopt uniform printed cards for the alumnc.e representative's file. A white card shall be u eel for listing the maiden name of a member. A pink card shall be used for listing her married name. The motion was carried. The alumnc.e representatives were divided into four committees to determine the form for the front and reverse ides of both the " maiden name" and " married name" cards. Lenore Briggs compiled all of the committee reports and was instructed by the Presid ent to submit the form s to the Central Office where the cards shall be printed. Point I-4 under " Directory" on page 11 of the Handbo ok, was interpreted that cards are to be added for each new initiate. Cards for collegiate members, however, shall be kept in a separate section of the card file. When the member graduates or leaves college, her card shall be placed in the regular file. Point I -8 on page 12 was clarified to read: " If a member is deceased, divorced, or dropped, write the statement on the file card, but continue to carry the card in the file. " Point I-7 on page 12 was changed as follow s : " In future printings of the Handbook, the first sentence shall be omitted since these facts have been included in the printed file card which shall be outlined under instruction
I-3." The second topic eli cussed was Collegiate Chapter History, point II, page 12 of the H a11db oo k. Items II, A, B, and C are to be continued by alumnc.e representatives in writing collegiate chapter histories. An additional point, D , shall be added as follows : " The alumn c.e representative shall have a yearly hi story of her collegiate chapter in her official notebook or file. Thi yearly hi tory hall be written in paragraph form and hall include a complete summary of the chapter activities for that year, nam s of active members initiate officer pledcre
and other pertinent material. Directions for writing the history shall be sent from the Central Office." Immediately following the close of thi s Seventh National Convention, the alumnre representative from each chapter shall write an up-to-date account of her chapter from its founding to date. She is to receive the assistance of collegiate and alumnre members of her chapter in compiling this past history. In the future the history shall be added to each year by the Collegiate Chapter Historian. This Historian shall make three copies of her account of the annual History. One shall be kept by the Collegiate Chapter Historian , a second sent to the Alumnre Representative of the chapter, and the third copy to the National Historian. The third major consideration was Life Membership, point IV, page 12 , Handbook . The alumnre representatives voted to approve the recommendation of the Convention Finance Committee that all Life Memberships shall be fifteen dollars ($1 5) for both alum nee and collegiate members. The plan for payment of Life Membership as outlined by the Finance Committee was also approved by the alumnre representatives. The semi-annual News L etters were discussed. It was emphasized that point V-1, page 12 of Handbook, shall be interpreted to mean that two form letters shall be sent to all initiated alumnre of the collegiate chapter. Collegiate members should receive personal copies of the News L etter, and copies are sent to the Collegiate President and Historian for filing purposes. Point V-2 in regard to the form of News Letters was read. All representatives were requested to follow the outline accurately and completely. A limit as to the length of the News Letters was considered. It was decided, however, to make this point optional, providing that the letter was of a reasonable length. Dates for mailing of the News L etters are to continue the same. The fall letter is to be sent not later than November 15 , the spring letter not later than May 15. Mrs. Staehle requested that letters be sent to the Central Office several days in advance of these elates so as to allow sufficient time for mimeographing and mailing. Alumnre representatives approved the suggestion that the tradition of having alumnre members send Christmas cards to their chapter alumnre representative be encouraged. Uniform national numbering of the News L etters was approved as follows: "Volume I shall be all letters sent in the year 1934-1935." The reason for this decision is that alumnre representatives were first appointed in the months following the Cleveland Convention of Augu t 1934. The succeeding volumes shall be as follows: Volume II, 1935-1936; Volume III, 19361937 ; Volume IV, 1937-1938 ; Volume V, 1938-1939; Volume VI, 19391940. The work of the alumnre representative in organizing alumnre chapters was stressed. (Point VII, page 13, Handbook.) Pennsylvania in the Second District was mentioned as a possible field for the development of new alumnre chapters. As an additional phase of the alumnre representative's work, the President directed the representatives to cooperate with the ational Historian
and the National Editor in securing news and pictures for Banta's Greek Exchange and Fraternity Month magazines as well as the Alpha Sigma Tau ANCHOR. Alumnce representatives are to send corrections for the News L etter mailing lists to the Central Office at the time is ues of their respective News Letters are mailed. Any additional names for the mailing li ts are also to be included at the same time. The final topic discussed was Relation to tlte Collegiate Chapter. (Point VI, page 13, Handbook.) This is the most important phase of the entire field of alumnce representative activities. The following interpretations and suggestions were adopted in relation to thi topic : 1. A chapter Hom ecoming should be sponsored annually. Whatever date is chosen should become traditional. (e.g. national or local Founders Day ; College Homecomincr Weekend, etc.) 2. Alumnce repre entatives shall send bills for their major ex pen es to the national president semi-annually. These expenses may include mailing cost, installation of new chapters, or the like. If a collegiate or alumnce chapter is willing to share in these expenses, their financial assistance may be accepted by the alumnce representative. 3. The alumnce representative should supplement and a ist faculty advisers in their advi ory work with the collegiate chapter. The alumnce representative is to be considered a national officer reporting directly to the national president when inspection of a local chapter is done . (VI-2 , page 13, Handbook.) During a chapter inspection, the time of which is to be decided by the national president, the alumnce representative shall inspect the President's book, Treasurer 's reco rds. ecretary's minutes, and all files. The alumnce representative should also instruct collegiate chapters in the proper parliamentary procedures as outlined in Emma Fox, Parliamentary Usage. It was recommended that the alumnce representatives should obtain a copy of thi book as vvell as alumnce and collegiate chapter officers. 4. A particular emphasis during the coming year shall be placed on increasing the number of members in each collegiate chapter. The alumnce representative has a definite responsibility in regard to this problem . She .may be of the greatest help by assisting with rushing, and checkino to see that her collegiate chapter follows suggestions in the I-1 andbook regarding Rushing procedures. (Pages 27-28, H andbook .) She shall assist the collegiate chapter to attain well-balanced memberships so that each chapter will have a suffici ent group returning to the college in the fall. 5. Point VI-S on page 13, Handbook , regarding expenses of vi itation to collegiate chapter was amended to read: "If it is too expensive for the alumnce representative to in spect the collegiate chapter, the national organization will pay the alumnce representative's expenses of traveling to the collegiate chapter." At the close of the meeting each alumnce representative presented a complete statistical directory of her chapter's alumnze member to the national president for the Central Office files. The meeting was adjourned at six o'clock. Respectfully submitted, BEVERLY Y. BoLLARD, ecretary pro tem ( igma lumnce Repre entative)

The Annual Report of Alpha Sigma Tau Greetings to the members of the Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority: HE national president of Alpha Sigma Tau takes pleasure in submitting the third annual report of the central office and a general report of the sorority's activities for the school year 1938-39.
CENTRAL OFFICE ACTIVITIES T he triennial inspection trip by the national president took place from September 23 to December 18, 1938. During that time fourteen collegiate chapters, twenty-one alumnre chapters, fifteen alumnre representatives, eight local Panhellenics, and fourteen national board members were visited; new alumnre chapters were installed at Little Rock, Arkansas and D urant, Oklahoma; an alumncc club at Hutchinson, Kansas was visited. This trip which took 7,000 miles of travel is fully described in THE ANCHOR of March 1939 . Correspondence for the year was as follows: A typed report was sent to each of the fo rty chapters visited during the inspection trip as well as 92 courtesy notes sent to various individual members. A four-page form report for each of the eight local Panhellenics visited was sent to all members of the Association of Education Sororities Council. Jine mimeographed Central Office Bulletins, a total of 39 pages, were sent to the national board members, faculty advisers, alumnre representatives, collegiate chapters, and al umnre chapters. This made a mailing list of 85 people. Two mimeographed letters, a total of seven pages were sent to the members of the Association of Education Sororities Council and the Alpha Sigma Tau Board. Four mimeographed letters totaling fourteen pages were sent to the members of the N a tiona! Board. A one-page mimeographed letter was sent to the alumnce representatives and a one-page general letter to convention delegates. News letters, supplies and 477 personal letters were also sent by the central office. THE DIRECTORY A three-way alumnce directory kept by the central office a follows: The initiation list of each collegiate chapter as copied from the green suede note books. The names of new initiates are added each year. The tatistical list of the alumn<e of each collegiate chapter which is arranged alphabetically by the maiden names. Date of initiation and graduation, scholarship and sorority examination grades, married name deaths, alumnre chapter affiliation, and life memberships are recorded. The mailing list arranged alphabetically by chapters gives each member full name and present addres . Thi i u. ed when ending th alumme repre entative ' news I tter .
THE ANC HOR
The membership as shown by the following chart is 2472 which is the most correct figure ever published. The central office does not have the exact initiation lists for the inactive chapters, and consequently the figures for the five inactive groups may be slightly wrong. Many of our alumnre representatives are newly appointed and have not yet had time to check incorrect addresses and statistical lists. It is very gratfy ing that this year we have succeeded in getting all initiation lists of active chapters up to date. Chapter

EFFICIENCY A calendar is sent out each year from the central office giving a chart of the sorority's activities and the elates upon which reports and letters are due. Because the national president was absent from the central office during the fall, efficiency ratings were not counted until January. Chapter presidents 路were requested to send five letters and one report during the five-month period. One hundred per cent is being used as a perfect score, ten per cent deducted fo r a letter or report not sent, and five per cent deducted for a late letter or report. The lowest possible score is forty per cent.

THE REPORTS OF THE DISTRICT PRESIDENTS FIRST DrsTRICT- Dorotl!y Stadler Mrs. Clara Schumann held this office until J une when she resigned. M rs. Schumann's resignation was received with regret becau e her organizing and executive abili ties were outstanding. During the year 1rs. Schumann had carried on correspondence with Charleston, Ill inois, concerning a new collegiate chapter. Dorothy Stadler who was appointed by the National Council to take Mrs. Schumann's place was elected also at the convention to serve as first district presi dent. Her activities as president of the Cleveland chapter provide her with ample background to carry on the national work .
SECON D DISTRICT-
1. Attended eigh t of the nine monthly meetings of the Johnstown alumnre chapter. 2. Arranged meeting of Altoona girls with Mrs. Staehle (October 13). 3. Was hostess to Mrs. Staehle on her inspection trip to J ohnstmvn. 4. On November 4 attended the Delta chapter's Founders' Day Banquet at Indiana, Pennsylvania. Extended greetings from J ohnstown alumnre. 5. Sent Christmas greetings to National Council, collegiate and alumnre chapters of District II. 6. On May 6 attended Alpha Sigma Tau's Homecoming at I ndiana. Spoke to the girls on "T he Sorority's Growth." 7. On May 13 attended the annual Alpha igma Tau's alunmre banquet at Lock H aven. As a speaker I tried to encourage member hip in alumnre chapters. 8. Through correspondence, I attempted to organize collegiate chapters at the following colleges: Shit:pensburg, Pa.; Millersvill ~ Pa.; and Carnegie T ech., Pittsburah, Pa. (Carnegie Tech. declined, no re pon from others).
9. Attempted through correspondence to organize alumn re chapters at Greensburg and Indiana, Pa. Attempts abandoned because of the few alumnee residin g in districts. 10. Through correspondence an attempt was made to form ulate a plan to ubdivide the Pittsburgh al umnre chapter because its members resided in so many outlying districts. Postponed un til after the St. Louis Convention. 11. Sent monthly letters to the Central Office and alJ correspond ence from this office was answered.
THIRD DrsmrcT- M ary A lice Seller The work of organizing new chapters in the third dstrict moves slowly. The great majority of students in our mid-western teachers' colleges and similar institutions ~ttend coll ege on limited means, which have become even more restricted during these past years of depression or "busin ess recession," to use a more recent nomenclature. Several states in this district have no national educational or social fraternities or sororities in their teachers' colleges and discourage their establishments. Social sororities in the fa r West hesitate to affiliate with Alpha Sigma Tau since we have no chapters in that section of the United States. I have therefore met with little success this year in my attempts at organizing new chapters although I have been in correspondence with Monticello, Arkansas; Peru, Nebraska; and other places. There may still be a chance at Monticell o and at Hammond, Louisiana. In addition to these so fa r fruitless endeavors at organizations, I have been working on some tentative un its of study for pledges in an attempt to make the term of pledgeship more constructive, uni fo rm , and meaningful ; and in so doing I have tried out some of my ideas with the pledges of the local Iota chapter. I have served during the past year as chaplain of the Emporia alumnce chapter. I have also had pleasant social contacts with the collegiate chapter here, and I especially enj oyed becoming acquainted with Mrs. Staehle when she visited E mporia last fall.
FouRTH DrSTRICT-Bula. MeN eill 1. Visited with Mrs. Staehle, the Welch, Beckley, Charl eston, and Bluefield alumnce chapters. 2.

REPORT OF ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATION SORORITIES REPRESEI TATIVE EDITH L. M ANSELL In February, 1939 I attended the annual winter meeting of the National Education Association in Cleveland as the official representative of the Association of Education Sororities. The reason for havin g a representative present is that the Association of Education Sororities wishes to keep up with the latest trend in the field of education; a complete report of the meetings was sent to the A sociation of Education Sororities Council and other intere ted officers. At the same time as the National Education Association meeting, a special session of the Association of Education Sororities Council was held at the Hotel Statler in Cleveland. The purpose of thi was to discu s the matter of National Panhellenic Congress- Association of Education Sororities relationship ; the result was the drawing up of a resolution to the effect that the Association of Education Sororities petition National Panhellenic Congress at their fall meeting for full membership in National Panhellenic Congress. This resoluti on will be discussed and acted upon by each of the Association of Education Sorori ties in their conventions to be held during the summer. Chapters added to the Association of Education Sororities roll during the year 1938-1 939 are: Madison College, Harrisonburg, Virginia, Alpha Sigma Alpha, Pi Kappa Sigma, Sigma Sigma Sigma; Carbondale , Illinois, Pi Kappa Sigma ; Weatherford, Oklahoma, D elta Sigma Ep ilon; Sigma Sigma Sigma withdrew from Fairmont, West Virginia. The usual correspondence 路with both Association of Education Sororities and Alpha Sigma Tau Councils has been carried on . The biennial meeting of the Association of Education Sororities Council will be held at the Greenbrier Hotel, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia on November 2-4. This is an open meeting and I hope some of our Alpha Sigma Tau members will be there.

THE REPORT OF THE 1 ATIONAL SONGBOOK COMMITTEE SARAH PERRINE, C!zainnan In September 1938, I received the appointment as National Songbook Chairman from the National Council. Mrs. Blanche Smink, former Songbook Chairman, had been working with the various chapters and had received from them verses written to familiar tunes. Through her efforts a mimeographed Songbook was issued in 1938. All materials for·warded by Mrs. Smink together with the Songbook were carefully reviewed to determine if they could be worked into a new book of original songs. The words having been written for familiar tunes already published, it seemed the best method of approach was to make a fresh start with both words and music, the thought being that more originality could be shown in thi manner. The National President visited Flint Alumn::e Chapter in December, 1938, at which time an original song was played for her and the suggestion made that each chapter be requested to contribute at least one song for the new book. The National President included in her February 1939 Central Office Bulletin the above request together with the "sample" song. To date the following chapters have made contributions: (collegiate) Theta, Iota, Nu; (alumn::e) Denver-Greeley, Flint, Philadelphia. The following individuals contributed: Margaret Holcomb Twork, Sarah Pollock Perrine. These songs have been reviewed with the various composers and we now have twelve original songs. I can say without qualification that Alpha Sigma Tau can be very proud of them.
