* PERLE LE LIE D ALL, 42 2 Rural, Emporia, Kansas, passed away April 30, 1941 , in the Newman Memorial Hospital after a four days' illness. The cause was a form of meningitis. Mrs. Dall, who e maiden name was Erma Perle Leslie was born at St. John , Kansas, January 31, 1904, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Leslie. She graduated from St. John High School in three years as valedictorian of her class in 1921 , and attended Emporia State College. he pledged Alpha Sigma Tau in September, 19 23, and was initiated in January , . 1924. She was married to Howard E . Dall at Cottonwood Falls, Kansas, Aprilll , 1925. Mrs. Dall was a member of St. Andrew Episcopal Church, Order of the Eastern Star, and Alpha Sigma Tau alumnre. She taught school nine years. She was president of the Women's Bu iness and Professional Guild of the Church, and a member of its Woman 's Auxiliary and the Altar Guild. In the sorority she had served as Iota alumnre representative, president of the Third District, and at her death was a member of the National Council a Life Membership Chairman. She was a charter member of the Emporia alumnre chapter. Perle's ardent desire for Iota chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau was that a loan fund be established for its girls. The least thing that Perle desired was any personal praise as she believed one's character speaks for itself. As a perpetual tribute to the only girl of Iota who had met every other member, to the girl who in tituted Iotas alumnre newsletter, and to the girl with a firm and constant loyalty to Alpha Sigma Tau, the Perle Leslie Dall Loan Fund for Iota girls was created May 1, 1941.
THE ANCHOR OF ALPHA SIGMA TAU The Ideals of Alpha Sigma Tau By
DR. RUTH SCARBOROUGH
/),_ S I BEGA J to search for a subject that I might discuss with youfinally arrived at the conclusion that there was only one fitting topic that I could talk about this evening- and that is the id eals of your own organization- The Ideals of Alpha Sigma Tau. From what I understand of this organization and of the aims for which it stands, it is an honor to be a member. But in accepting that honor you have also accepted a great responsib ility. You must live up to the standards that are set : standards of scholarship , leadership, and service. Because of the very fact that you are a member, other students on the campus will expect more of you. Remember that you always represent your sorority on every occasion- that the whole sorority will be judged by your actions. A truly educated person is cultured, refined, and considerate of others. Your sorority should help to develop these qualities. As you have lived through this week of Alpha Sigma Tau activity, as you have studied your manual and made your vows, the sense of your responsibility has perhaps grown upon you. You are responsible for the development of your mental, physical, and spiritual powers. You are responsible for the 24 hours of every day- whether you use them or abuse them. You are responsible for others with whom you come in contact; you must live among people and share responsibilities one with the other. You will need help in meeting those responsib ilities. You may seek that help in friends, in teachers, in parents, in literature, in the Bible, in all good books, and in communion with yourself and in communion with your God. The second pragraph of your sorority prayer reads: " May all those with whom we come in contact be happier and nobler because of having known us. Help us to grow in those things which make life worth while. May all pettiness be crowded out of our lives ; let us be kind in what we do and say. Teach us to outgrow all malice and to live according to Thy law of love."
To live up to that prayer is a lofty ideal- it is to attain and to impart to others the higher, richer life. Your motto is made up of three descriptive adjectives: ctive, Selfreliant, Trustworthy-three small words but powerful words packed with meaning. You will be expected to be active on the campus and (after
graduation ) active in life- using your influence to promote that which is good- doing your bit to make this a better world in which to live. The second stanza of your song reads : Though our lot be high or lowly, Be it weal or woe, Bound by ties that naught can sever, We will onward go. I charge you ever to go onward, onward, upward, higher, toward the attainment of these goals. The second word of your motto is Self-reliance. But self-reliance comes from Knowledge. We are not afraid to do the things we know how to do ; we love to do the things we do well. Education is a preparation fo r life. If our ed ucation is thorough we will be sure of ourselves and we will not be afraid to rely on our own efforts. Nothing gives us more self-reliance than a knowledge and an understanding of the problem with which we must deal. The third word of your motto is Trustworthy. Here in the sorority you learn to love and trust each other and to inspire trust in others. A good example of that is the way you select members of your organization ; you exclude those who are not trustworthy and who, because of lower standards of conduct and lower ideals, have nothing constructive to contribute to you or to the group. The faculty of Shepherd College is trying to promote the scholarship, character, and ultimate happiness of the students. We faculty members would like for you to know that we appreciate the cooperation of this group. It helps us just to know that you are active on the campus and that you are promoting higher standards and loftier ideals. We shall look to you for support. It was Carl Schurz, the fa mous Hungarian patriot who came as a refugee to our shores, who said : " Ideals are like the stars- we never reach them , but like the mariners on the sea, chart our course by them." As a student and teacher there is no doubt in my mind that schools and colleges are homes of idealism. This idealism shows itself wherever there is freedom of thought and liberty of expression. Education teaches not what to think but how to think. First know the facts and then be able to formulate an intelligent opinion based on the knowledge of those facts. The best citizens are those who have the courage and the brains to think for themselves and to declare their opinions. No college is worthy of the name that does not encourage its students to think fo r themselves. You may be called up to make many sacrifices in life, but never sacrifice your convictions. In these uncertain times, when the blighting shadow of cultural eclipse has fallen on so many lands in other parts of the world, we are extremely fortunate in that we live in a country which guarantees freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and freedom of opinion. Our students are still encouraged to seek Truth and we are not afraid of what that truth may reveal. Pre ident Roosevelt, in his address to the 8th American cientific Congres onl y two weeks ago, spoke of this search on our part for truth. He said: " We permit ourselves by common consent to search for truth, and to teach the tru th as we see it- and by learning a li ttle here and a littl
there and teaching a little here and a little there, to allow the normal processes of truth to keep growing for the well-being of fellow men.- In contrast, in other parts of the world, teachers and scholars are not permitted to search for truth lest the truth when made known might not suit the designs of their masters. Too often they are no allowed to teach the truth as they see it, for truth might make men free. They become objects of suspicion if they speak openly, if they show an interest in new truth , for their very tongues and minds are supposed to be mobilized for other ends." Let me repeat: let us be glad that we live in a land where we can seek to know the truth. I have confidence in the youth of today- youth that stresses decency rather than descent, morality rather than money, righteousness rather than riches, peace rather than war, and the hope of a more Christian world order. Youth is fearless ; youth is idealistic as well as realistic. Life may give you many hard knocks, but cherish that youthful idealism. Preserve your youthful and optimistic point of view. George Bernard Shaw says : " Youth is a wonderful thing; what a crime to waste it on children." It was Henrik Ibsen who said: "The younger generation are knocking at the door. Shall we wait for them to break it down or shall we admit them gladly? " The youth of the past before the invention of modern means of communication, had a narrower and more provincial outlook. Before they had access to the weekly magazine, the daily paper, the radio, rapid and easy transportation , and other means of communication, they could not know what was going on in the world as a whole. They were interested mainly in the affairs of their own little world. But the modern college students at least read headlines. They listen to the radio; they study international affairs; they read good books and good plays; they hear good music; some of them even indulge in intelligent conversation! The college students of today are frank and honest. Their frankness is sometimes startling or amazing, but it is refreshing, straightforward, and honest. You do not want to lead a selfish life ; the aims of your organization outlaw selfishness. To be active, self-reliant, and trust\:vorthy is to lead a useful life- useful to your college, your community, your country, and to the world. My hope for you is that life in the world of tomorrow will not dull the beauty or the freshness of these ideals but rather strengthen them. When you leave Shepherd College will you still hold fast to these ideals? Will you, by your example and your teachings, transfer these same high standards to other students who come to us as you go from us? Will you , when you leave the sheltered walls of the college to enter into life transfer (by your example and teachings) these same ideals to the next generation of youth? When you have reached old age will you still be clinging steadfastly to these same ideals? That is your responsibility. In meeting that responsibility several things are necessary: Loyalty, discipline, unselfishness, optimism, chivalry, and courage. Some of you heard the speech which King George VI addressed to the people of the empire over which he reigns. You heard his words of inspiration, courage, and determination. He urged his people on- that they can not, must not fail! Defeat, he said, would not mean eclipse but total destruction. They are putting forth a desperate fight to preserve their
ideals and their mode of life. You, too, are fighting a less dangerous and less desperate, but just as important, battle for the preservation and propagation of your ideals. The words which King George used in charging his people on, I now use to charge you on. He said: " I say to you: Put into your task, whatever it may be, all the courage and purpose of which you are capable. Keep your hearts proud and your resolve unshaken. Let us go forward to that task as one man, a smile on our lips and our heads held high, and with God's help we shall not fail." EDITOR's NoTE: The above was taken from an address by Dr. Ruth Scarborough , patroness of Chi chapter, at the installation of that chapter in May, 1940.
••In Matters Controversial-·· In matters controversial, I'm really very fine ; I always see two points of view; The one that's wrong-and mine.*
HY is it that friends who agree with us on practically everything touching our personal lives differ violently at times on affairs of international or domestic import? You may believe in rushing all aid to Britain, while an intimate companion of yours may swear by Colonel Lindbergh. You may sympathize with labor, while one of your must congenial acquaintances feels only the utmost contempt for strikers. You may depend on every word President Roosevelt utters, while your closest friend distrusts his every act. Then there are those who profess to believe a certain way as a matter of self-preservation, and , oddly enough, these people seem more capable of objective thinking than those prompted by noble motives. In the field of politics, I am becoming increasingly convinced that it is the layman who thinks emotionally, not the man on the inside. I have listened to a most cordial chat between a Republican editor and a Democratic candidate who had felt more than once the sting of the former's editorials. It is not unheard of for a reporter to support one candidate but to vote for another. More and more, I have come to regard the politician as a salesman who finds it to his advantage to sell a particular brand but knows, if he is a good salesman, the strong points and the loop holes in both his and hi competitor's sales talk. Because the advertiser has specialized in the reasoning of man , let me digress for a moment. The advertising expert recognizes that first of all he must give a prospective buyer an emotional reason for wanting a product ; consequently, advertisements use uch appeals as appetite, ex, love of children, and pride in possession. Then because the advertiser recognizes too that everyone likes to think of him elf as a logical being the advertisement contain a few statist ics. Thus the buyer' "pride in posse sion of a handsome sport model is aroused, and second he is informed that the

car will give eighteen miles to the gallon; and the buyer buys the handsome sport model sincerely believing that the economical argument made up his mind. Two other principles followed by advertisers are repetition and concentration. Prolonged repetition of a business name impresses upon the customer's mind that the firm is old and established. (People in general are likely to suspect the new.) Concentration is best illustrated by the show window, for the clever window dresser knows that focusing the attention upon one or two models is more effective than upon a half dozen. In these advertising principles may be found the answer to many of our uncanny disagreements with our otherwise congenial friend s. Perhaps he who thinks with Colonel Lindbergh was once emotionally impressed with the belief that this country's entrance into the World War was all wrong and feels that the current situation is the same old story. Perhaps he who sympathizes with labor has lived among factory workers and has had emotionally driven home the hct that unless the growth of social responsibility on the part of the industrialist keeps pace with hi s growth in wealth, eruptions are inevitable. Perhaps he who distrusts every innovation of the New Deal feels the natural security that accompanies what is old and established. Snobbery is an emotional experience that influences our thinking more than we like to admit. The liberal is often an intellectual snob who likes to ally himself with the intelligentsia. To him, the business man is lacking in culture and in the type of education that would give him a perspective of the problems of the day. The conservative is often a class conscious snob who likes to ally himself with the wealthier bourgeoisie. To him, the liberal is starry-eyed, lacking in practical common sense. When we realize how inherent these principles that guide our thinking are, we can readily understand why all argument is futile. I recall a certain self-made business man upon whom I attempted vainly to impose some of my academic and liberal social views. After coming to this country a Danish immigrant boy, he had proceeded to devote all his time and efforts to accumulating farms and three blocks of business buildings in a small Ohio city. This fact he stated with pride but also with a tinge of regret, for he obviously sensed that he had missed much in life. In our argument, I tried flattery on him, telling him that everyone was not born with his ability or with his I.Q. But did I sway one iota? Indeed, I did not, for emotionally intrenched too deeply and for too long in his thinking was the belief that he was self-made and that by self-denial and hard work, everyone could and should accomplish as much as he. President Roosevelt is a master of the art of controversy. He accepted (to his friends) or took (to his enemies) the third term nomination on the strength of the argument that the international situation needed him . His opponents could bring up corrupt political machines in the Democratic party until they were blue in the face, but never once did they sidetrack the third term candidate. He knew that these accusations would not move his supporters one hundredth of an inch. He also knew that if he took valuable campaign time to remind his accusers of the political machines his party had already cleaned up or to do a little accusing himself his opponents would still be just as resolutely his opponents. The im-
portant thing was to concentrate on the matter at hand, to keep constantly before the people the fact that the international situation was grave and required an experienced hand ; and hammer away on that he did. These differences of opinion create a healthy situation in a country. We need the conservative view to appreciate the status quo. That private enterprise has brought about a higher standard of living is indisputable. The opinion that we should not rush into any foreign embroilments is obviously substantial. On the other hand , we need the liberal view for progress. History illustrates that the radicalism of today is the conservatism of tomorrow. In their day, the abolitionist, the advocator of the income tax to lighten the burden of the property ta..'< payer, the crusader against child labor, and, to come up to more recent years, the condemner of fasci sm in Spain- all were the radicals of their day. Between opposed view the country achieves balance, or, in other words, a democracy. L uciLL E G ALE,

Old Williamsburg N COLONIAL time~ the capital of Virginia was at Williamsburg. It was much later that it was moved to Richmond. In the eighteenth century, Virginia had more people than it has today. The land wore out with continual crops of tobacco so many people left for the more fertile lands of the west. Going to Williamsburg today, one drives through mile after mile of pine forests with their characteristic odor of turpentine. Historical markers indicate the spot where Pocahontas saved the life of John Smith, many Civil War battles and the usual places where George Washington slept. When the capital was moved, Williamsburg fell into decay. It has been restored with money supplied by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. We arrived in the evening and could barely see our way down the street because of the tiny street lights about the size of a candle. The stores along the main street, Duke of Gloucester street, are of red brick, white woodwork and tiny panes of glass in the best Georgian manner. The signs are in old English lettering. ext day we started sightseeing with the State House or Capitol. It had been burned down several times but the restored building has the original foundation and has been built following the original architect's plans. It is furni shed with pictures, tables, chairs, stoves and books either authentic eighteenth century pieces or exact replica of pieces used at that time. These restored buildings are shown to visitors by guides dressed in 18th century costumes. In the morning they are taken by coach to their posts of duty. It makes a picture not easily forgotten to see the old coach with footmen and coachman and colonial ladies and gentlemen inside. The next place to visit is the gaol or jail. It is of wood with dark cell and bars but no glass in the windows. The prisoners were given straw to leep on which became alive with vermin before long. There is a mall
hole in the thick wall through which the food was pushed. In the winter many died of pneumonia because there was no heat and the small windows remained open . The debtors cell across the corridor was somewhat better and as their friends were allowed to provide for them, their lot was not so bad. Upstairs were two rooms heavily barred and locked for the jailer and his family. He also had a room downstairs decorated with Hogarth prints. In the yard are stocks and pillary. Sitting in the stocks is difficult for the seat is narrow and uncomfortable. Next we saw the Raleigh Tavern. This can ue compared to a fine hotel today. There is a powder room for the ladies and a bar for the gentlemen and several fine private dining rooms. Washington , Jefferson and Lafayette dined and danced here to a pianoforte and music box which starts to play when the lid is opened. They ate from heavy china, silverware, pewter and brass. The food was all covered when it came to the table for the kitchen was in the back yard. They did not wash and iron the napkins very often. Each time they were used they were put in a press and smoothed ready to be used again. Scenes from this tavern were used in the moving picture, "The Howards of Virginia." Bruton Church is not restored . It has remained in use since the days when George Washington attended Episcopal services there. It has been repaired and parts have been replaced but the original building still stands. The church yard is very interesting as the tombstones date back three hundred years, generally adorned with lengthy Biblical quotations. Many people died very young. The Wythe house is a good example of an 18th century middle class home. George Wythe was a professor at William and Mary College which was started three hundred years ago at Williamsburg and is growing larger all the time. This Wythe hou e is square, four rooms downstairs , dining room , drawing room, study and schoolroom; upstairs are four bedrooms, and the kitchen is again a separate building in the yard as are the coachhouse, stable, granary, etc. The house is furni shed just as it was when George Wythe and his family lived there, even to curtains, dishes, ornaments, clock, rugs, books, lamps, food in the kitchen presided over by a Negro cook. Fresh flower are arranged each day in the 18th century style. The bed have quaint bedspreads, knitted in designs. The beds seem high to us because of the feather beds. The pictures, as one goes up the stairs, are of flowers representing those in bloom in each month of the year. The grandest building is the Governor's Palace completely furnished even to a canary. It, too, burned several times, each time rebuilt in a grander style. It was during this time that England began trading with China so many Chinese articles began to appear in people's homes, especially porcelain articles. The wall paper in one of the rooms is Chinese and was stripped from the walls of an old London house. Much of the furniture was brought from England as the early governors came from there. The garden are especially interesting. The yew trees are trimmed in different shapes and the walks are laid out in formal patterns. The flowers used for the 18th century flower arrangements in the different buildings are grown here. There is a small stream and a kitchen garden where fruits and vegetables are grown. Thomas Jefferson lived here while governor of Virginia.
There are many other buildings in Williamsburg that date back to colonial times but they are not open to the public. There are a few homes that are modern but gradually these will be taken over and made into colonial buildings. There is a wig and peruke maker's shop, a museum and a craft shop which makes articles like bedwarmers, horseshoes etc., in the colonial style fo r museums. Williamsburg today in all truth is like a town out of another age. LILLIA VOGT Pi '3 1 T
N.I.C. Announcement UCCESSFUL as was the first annual ational Interfraternity Conference held in Jew York last 1 ovember when 3,600 members of Greek-letter organizations heard Wendell Willkie, Lowell Thoma , Dr. Henry Wriston, Dr. Dixon Ryan Fox, and other notables pay tribute to the college fraternity, the second annual dinner promises to be even more impressive. It will be held at the Hotel Commodore, Friday evening, Jovember 28. The speakers will be persons of national prominence. The executive committee of the National Interfraternity Conference has extended an invitation to the members of the National Panhellenic Congress to attend the dinner. The entire balcony, together with Parlor B, will be reserved for them and for representatives of the Women 's Professional Panhellenic Association and the Association of Education Sororities. The main ballroom and the adjoining east ballroom will be reserved for members fraternities of the National Interfraternity Conference and a limi ted number of representatives of the honor society and professional fraternity groups. The west ballroom will be reserved for men and women who attend the dinner together. Already reservations fo r the dinner are being made by fraternitie and sororities with L. G. Balfour, Attleboro, Mass., chairman of the National Interfraternity Conference. Hundreds were disappointed last year as early reservations absorbed the supply of tickets, although the Hotel Commodore broke New York dinner records.
Beckley Alumnce's Lending Library HE Beckley alumnre chapter has an idea which it considers worthy of passing out to its sisters. This idea involves the accumulating of books which will be the fou ndation of a library fo r Omicron chapter. In September 1940, the alumnre group voted to join a book club. The books received each month were to be loaned to the members until the time when Om icron chapter has a permanent place to keep them. In order to save money the organization decided to join a club for a period of one year. To date twelve books have been received路 six of which are classics such as " Pride and Prejudice' by Jane Au ten , and ix of which are modern , uch as ' Grapes of Wrath" by John teinbeck.
Each of these books have been accessioned and fitted with book pockets and lending cards. At the sorority meetings each month these books are exchanged among the girls. During the summer months when the sorority group does not have regular meetings, the books will be kept at the home of the president who will loan them out to any members who come for them. It is the hope of the Beckley alumnre that this idea will encourage other alumnre groups to contribute in some definite way to the collegiate chapter. ELIZABETH JO NES
Outstanding Alpha Sigs Lucille Evatt, Upsilon 1 UCILLE EVATT of Bonneville, Arkansas, a senior at the Arkansas State Teachers College and president of the Upsilon chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau, was crowned the national " Rose of Sigma Tau Gamma" and was the honor guest at the festivities held during the biennial national conclave of the fraternity in Kansas City, Missouri, December 28-30, 1940. The fraternity was celebrating the twentieth anniversary of its founding. Lucille, who was crowned as Sigma chapter's candidate at the fraternity 's spring formal last year, was awarded the first place honor as the result of a contest in which the chapters of the fraternity entered candidates. Final decision was made by a committee of artists in Buffalo, New York, from portraits submitted by the fraternity chapters. The crowning took place at the Twentieth Anniversary Ball held in the Hotel President in Kansas City. For the coronation, the Sigma Taus formed an aisle down which she walked. Her crown was of white rosebuds. She was presented by National President McCune with a bouquet of red rosebuds and a gold engraved bracelet. Mary Sue Clark of Arkadelphia, Arkansas, also an Alpha Sigma Tau, accompanied her to Kansas City. Lucille is well known on the A.S.T.C. campus, having won beauty honors in various contests during the past three years, including being named to appear in the beauty section of the 1939 Saoll. She has been selected as a candidate for beauty queen of 1940-41 Sc1'oll. Lucille is a member of Royal Rooters and has recently been initiated into the Art Club. She was also selected as an outstanding student on the campus this year.
Faye Brandon Cross, Zeta Tau Mrs. W. C. Cross, Jr. , of Suffolk, the former Faye Brandon, is one of our outstanding Zeta Taus. Had she chosen to finish out the school year instead of setting up housekeeping for " her Bill," she would have represented our chapter in the May Court and our college at the Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester. Faye is the retiring president of the Zeta Tau chapter, and she is also the retiring president of A.C.E. Be ides being one of the senior chaperons, she was busine s manager of the Co-

tillion Club and was among the choice number selected to represent Farmville State Teacher College in " Who 's Who." Faye's quiet, possessive leadership and her ability to get what she had her heart set on was recognized last fall by Alpha Kappa Gamma. Unassuming, but firm ; frank and fun-loving; understanding and loyal ; dependable and tender . . . these things remind us that we've lost a: true leader. Her sense of responsibility and her reverence brought immediate respect and cooperation. To the alumnce we wish to say that we're giving you a jewel and we beg of you to try its worth if you think us too enthusiastic. And to Faye we request that- "should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind"--she remember us by this simple tribute which we pay to her ... " Whereso 'er we are, below or else above you, Whereso 'er you are, our hearts shall truly love you."
Jean Moyer, Zeta Tau A slight wrinkle of the forehead, a characteristic gesture of the hands, an intent expression on her face, an earnest voice- these remind of us Jean speaking in prayers or presiding a president of the Young Women's Christian Association. As to harmony in the College Choir, gay tunes in Sing, classical melodies at Dramatic Club plays, violin notes in the college orchestra, hymns in chapel- these remind us of Jean as a talented musician. A's 'in a record book, dean 's list, "excellent" written on test papers, - these remind us of Jean, our salutatorian. A giggle, a crazy mood , a big noise in Six Annex- these tell us of Jean " just being silly" as she would say. Jean Moyer, of Portsmouth, because of an amazing capacity for work, leadership, and great versatility has made a contribution to S.T.C. that will be remembered long after June 3. Jean says what she thinks in a way that everyone admires and respects her opinion even if they can't agree with her. One of the few times that Jean worries is when she feels that she has hurt someone else, which of course she really hasn't ; Jean 's lovable nature makes friends for keeps. Besides being president of the Y.W.C.A. , Jean was assistant editor of The Tonhb earer of Alpha Kappa Gamma; A member of the senior a cap pella in the college choir ; a member of the Cotillion Club; selected for " Who's Who"; vice-president of Kappa Delta Pi; treasurer of the Zeta Tau chapter; president of Alpha Phi Sigma; treasurer of the Granddaughter 's Club; president of the college orchestra; president of the College Sunday School class; and a representative to Student Government.
路 Louise Hall, Zeta Tau Louise Hall, with her engaging smile and her characteristic expression, "Now, honey, let me tell you," is going to leave us in a few weeks to join the alumnce. Keeping the minutes of the Zeta Tau chapter should have kept her pretty busy, and yet Lou found time to tackle the job of recording
secretary for Pi Gamma Mu and for Alpha Phi Sigma respectively. Lou is also a member of Beorc Eh Thorn and Kappa Delta Pi. Dashing, madcap, merry, we know that we're going to miss Louise more than we like to admit even to ourselves, but with chins 'way up we say, "Adios !" The best luck in the world to a wonderful Alpha Sigma Tau.
Dorothy Rollins, Zeta Tau Dorothy Rollins is one of Zeta Tau 's most outstanding seniors. Capable easy-going Dotty has been on the staff of the college newspaper, The Rotunda, and the college annual , The Virginian, for several years. She is also a member of Gamma Psi honorary art fraternity ; Pi Gamma Mu, honorary fraternity in social science ; and the president of Kappa Delta Pi, honorary fraternity in education . Last year Dotty was tapped by Alpha Kappa Gamma and this year she was one of the sixteen girls selected to represent our college in " Who 's Who. " Dotty is al o a member of the Y.W. C.A. and the thletic Association .
Betty Bush, Beta In a campus-wide student ballot, Betty Bush, member of the Beta chapter of Alpha igma Tau at Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, has been elected to reign as queen over the May pageant featuring the college's " Spring Festival," May 23 and 24. Of the four girls chosen for her " court," two of them are al so members of Alpha Sigma Tau. They are Bernice Kane, of Mt. Plea ant, and Phyllis Wagner, of Capac.
Vicki Wolnie, Th eta Vicki Beth Wolnie is an outstanding Alpha Sigma Tau member, because she has participated in so many extracurricular activitie , and yet maintained her scholarship. Vicki 's experience in these many affairs and groups has done much to give her a well-rounded personality, and make her known throughout the entire university. The following are some of the positions she has held while a student at Wayne University: President of the Education Student Council ; president of the Women 's Health Education Club ; member of the Board of Directors, Assocation of Women Students ; vice-president of the Women's Health Club; social chairman of the Women's Health Club ; member of the Griffin Swimming Club ; member of the Junior and Senior Dance Group; program and publicity chairman of the Women 's Athletic Asociation.
Ruth Miesel, Theta Ruth Miesel is the president of Theta chapter, and we think that he has been a real asset to the group, not only because of her splendid work as president, but also because her outside activities have been of merit. Ruth has held state titles for fancy diving, and since she i a Health

She is the vice-president of the Griffin Swimming Club, and she has held the positions of treasurer and secretary in the Health Education Club. Her college career has been rounded out by active participation in the interclass and intramural sports, including basketball , baseball , volleyball, and swimming. Louise French Cruise
Louise French Cruise of Tazewell, Virginia, was crowned May Queen at Concord's annual May festivai Friday May 2, 1941. When Rebecca Perry, Concord 's 1940 May Queen, placed the crown on Louise's head, it was the first time a member of a sorority had crowned one of her sisters. Louise is the wife of Theron 0. Cruise of Tazewell. She has been very active during four years on the campus, being a member of Alpha Sigma Tau, Women 's Athletic Association, Concord Players, Panhellenic Council and Pi Epsilon Mu, honorary physical education fraternity. She was president of Chi Beta Phi, honorary science fraternity for women and secretary of Cardinal Key during the past year. Margaret Martin, another Alpha Sig, was one of the senior attendants.

Some time ago I wrote an article for THE ANCHOR about my hobby, amateur radio. I have since been wondering if there are any of my sisters in Alpha Sigma Tau who also are amateur radio operators. Or is the title " Only Amateur Radio Operator of Alpha Sigma Tau" mine unchallenged ? I am enclosing a photo of myself wearing one of my allied hobbies- an autograph jacket. One rush season each girls of Pi chapter got a yellow shirt, had every one in the chapter autograph it, then embroidered the names in green thread. With this idea as a start, I got a white jacketThen came the fun of visiting " hams" with whom I had talked and getting their call letters and " handles" written on my jacket. (My own call letters, W9JWJ, are on the back of the yoke.) I got a number of autographs, in and near St. Louis and was thrilled to be able to get some as far away as Chicago too. I embroidered them in a variety of colors- and you should have heard the fellows " Oh! " and " Ah! " when they saw their own calls done in color! A jacket like that is fun to wear, fun to make, and lots of friendships are made with it! This might be a grand idea for any organization to which you belong. (See picture on page 17) .

ÂˇCOLLEGIATE CHAPTERS â€˘ ALPHA CHAPTER The second semester rushing began with an Ope n House Tea on Sunday, February 22. It was held at the home of Miss Eleanor Meston. Our color scheme was carried out with lemon and lime ice and dainty frosted cakes. March 7 was the date for our informal party at the home of Mrs. Roland Bates. The question in every girl's mind now is, what about the draft? So we, too , had a "draft party." Red , white and blue predominated in clever invitations, paper mil itary hats, tally cards, and table decorations. Our rushees seemed to enjoy themselves, wh ich , of course, resulted in our hav ing a good time. Our formal dinner was held March 15 , at the Women 's League in Ann Arbor. Members of the alum n<e present were Mrs. Francis Lord, Mrs. Marion Fischer, M iss Eleanor Meston, Mrs. Virginia Cooper and Miss Margaret Pollock. Eating a del icious dinner, enjoying a melodrama, singing, and listening to readings !ended themsel ve to the festivity of the occasion. Miss Meston told us of the origin of Alpha Sigma Tau , the hardships undergone, about Alpha's advisor, Miss Norto n, who was so loved by all because of her admi rab le qualities of social and cultural ideals. Then , too , she told of the dances and parties which we re, as usual, tops on campus. Saturday morning, April 26, we all went over and enjoyed a grand breakfast at the home of our advisor, Mrs. Roland Bates. T he beautiful, swarm sunshine, our cozy breakfast and all seemed to further our friendsh ip and fidelity which was later expressed in our formal initiation of Mary Hemmingway, Aurabel Hausman and Doris Smith. Our sorority dance wi ll be held at Charles McKenny Ha ll, May 3. Plans fo r a good orchestra, refreshments and chaperons are now nearing completion. We're all hopi ng for a grand time, especially that " pin dance'' when we'll be dancing to "She's an Alpha Sigma Tau" and "The Rose of Alpha Sigma Tau." ALBERTA GUENTER
BETA CHAPTER It won 't be long now before we will
be celebrating our first anniversary of becoming Alpha Sigma Tau's. Eight new girls have joined our ranks this year. We entertained them both formally and informally. At our formal party we featured the reopening of the Pickled Penguin Night Club. A committee decorated the home of Marie Thompson following the night club motif. We even had a bar from which a pretty bar maid served punch. A floor show rated next after refreshments as the main feature of the evening. The girls were pledged to Alpha Sigma Tau at a tea at the home of Marjorie Gallegher, alumna of Alpha Sigma Tau. The tea was carried out in the sorority colors, emerald and gold. Many of our alumn<e dropped in for tea after the pledging service. Most of us experienced our first wiener roast of the season when the pledges entertained at a picnic in the park about ten mi les off campus. They acted as hostesses and served us with hot dogs and everything that goes with a picnic dinner. Making money, although a problem in every organization, has afforded us a great deal of pleasure, too. After a couple of years of experience in Beta chapter anyone could become a supersaleswoman. We have made money selling candy, selling our old clothes at rummaae sales, selling tickets on a sweater, selling incidentals, and right now we are selling tickets for our annual May breakfast next Sunday. When the May breakfast is over our annual dinner dance, to be held June 6, wi ll hold the spotlight. Kathleen Walcott, our president will deserve the vote of thanks, and small remembrance, which she will receive when she turns her office over to her successor Florence Mary Gwinn on May 1. There is no doubt but what Florence Mary is a worthy successor, and if future presidents live up to their precedent, Alpha Sigma Tau will long be a part of Central's Campus. CATHRY M cCo ELL '41

Let's start with Christmas as we had some notable events then. We had a social gathering in the Activities Cottage here at school with exciting gifts for everyone. Oh-and no one could forget those refreshments, prepared by our "home ec.'' girls, of club sandwiches, ice cream , cookies and tea. Another memorable Christmas event was our Panhellenic dance. Soft colored lights shining on tinseltrimmed Christmas trees made the atmosphere of the room just "fittin' and proper" for the soft music of the "Wand J Twelve." Upon our return from our Christmas leave Mrs. Guard , one of our patronesses, had a lovely tea for us where we were kept on the edges of our seats by the true experiences of one of our alumnre. Miss Emma Stewart, just returned from Rumania. The next month we were entertained at an informal tea by the Johnstown alumnre chapter at J ohnstown. We played several peppy games and really got acq uainted with the active alumnre group. Then, of co urse, there was the fun of the bus ride with the inevitable knitting, chatter, and songs. ext in our whirl of events was our formal rush party. For our " typical spring party'' some of our clever "Taus" carved doll heads out of soap and dressed them in cheerful green and yellow bonnets and bows. Believe us, everyone put their best fo ot forward for the final flin g. Things went off in great style-we had a dinner dance at the Indiana Hotel-and now we have nine grand new pledges! To celebrate our success we forget our studies for one evening and thoroughly en joyed. Ethel Waters in "Cabin in the Sky." A very special event on our calendar was our celebration, on May 16, of the Silver Anniversary of the Founding of Delta chapter. We even had an original welcome song for our alumnre written by Ruth Englehart, our president for next year. And then we must tell you about the fashion sensations we have created on campus. We've blossomed out this spring with white terry cloth sweaters with Alpha Sigma Tau written across them, promptly dubbed "Alpha Sigma Towels," and white crew hats with the same insignia. Incidentally we've each done our share of school work. In fact some of us have worked hard enough to become pledges in honorary fraternities; Doris Whitman and Peggy McCafferty to Kappa Omicron Phi, a home economics fraternity, and
Virginia Roberts to Pi Omega Pi, a business educational fraternity. These are the highlight . We won't be writing again before the close of the school term, so, isters, may this summer bring you lots of fun and happiness! Love from, DELTA CHAPTER
ZETA CHAPTER Zeta started its new year by a special bid day , when we welcomed two new girls to our group- Helen Ferer and Jeanette Earon , making a total of nine girls who have been pin-pledaed. Also in this month we honored the adviser of another sorority on our campus. Dr. Geary, who had been our friend for many years, was our guest of honor at a " play night" which was held in our new field house. Badminton , volleyball, ping-pong, and even wrestling were on the evening's program . Initiation was held in March for our old pledaes and we received seven more sisters into our inner circle. Constantly thinking of ways to raise funds , we sponsored a public card party. Prizes were presented for bridge and five hundred , and our purpose was gainedwe did make some money. Social service work seemed to us necessary and yet we had variou debaters as to just what to do. We fina ll y reached the decision-to have groups of four go to the hospital once a week to make bandages for their future use, offering our services in this way. Our pledges proved very active and earned quite a bit of money by selling candy bars at the basketball games. Their chief purpose in raising money was to entertain at the annual pledge party for the actives. This sport get-together was a lot of fun! May, our closing month, is the highlight of the year, when our annual spring banquet occurs. This will be held at The Victorian , favors being carved wooden jewel boxes lined with blue. After a Panhellenic dance our season's work and play will be completed for another successful year. MARGUERITE WrEDHAH
ZETA PLEDGES ENTERTAIN ACTIVES
As is the u ual cu tom, the pledges of the Zeta chapter held a party for the actives.
THE ANC HOR Each active received a piece of paper resembling a jar of mustard . It announced the party to be held on May 1, 194 1, destination unknown . May 1 came and everyo ne met in sport clothes at the designated place. After about a forty-five minute drive the group arrived at the Evergreen Co untry Club, a name well suited to the beautiful ston e cabin surrounded by evergreens. In order to get " limbered up" for what was to follow , a softball game was first in order. After everyo ne tired of this, the surprise of the party came- square dancing to a recording. I ca n assure yo u everyone appreciated the delicious meal which followed. The menu consisted of weiners, roasted in the firepl ace, baked beans (not from the ca n ), pickl es, oli ves, potato chips, jello salad, ice cream, coo kies, and coffee. During this restful hour the actives received the annu al gift from the pledges, this yea r an electric plate. After everyone had eaten his fill the rest of the evening was spent in danci ng to a radio and playing cards and singing. B ET TY THOMPSON
THETA CHAPTER The girls of the Theta chapter have been very active since the beginning of the year starting the new year right by initiating five new members. The girls, of whom we are proud, are Aul ga Maye, Corrine Pierson , Irene Sharek, Barbara Bennett, and Helen Lamesfeld. Close upon initiation followed plans for the rush parties, which had the three chairmen, Barbara Co nklin, E uni ce Little, and Barguerite Bernard, thinking long and hard of ori ginal ways in which to entertain the rushees. The results were a newspaper party, a Strauss waltz party, and a Sunday morning breakfast , which were inexpensive but delightful ways of impressing the prospective pledges. A week after the final rushing, our efforts were rewarded by the pledging of four lovely girls, Phyllis Bye rs, Judith Campbell , Kay Gra ham , and Lois Kerr. We chose Easter vacation as a good time to have a little pleasant relaxation, and , at the same tim e add to our treasury. Consequently, Easter Monday saw the Theta chapter girls, looking very pretty in their new Easter ensembles, attend ing the Bridge Luncheon spo nso red by the Alpha Sigma T au so rority. Lorraine Mettle, who was in charge of th e affair, reported that we profited to the extent of
$24.00! We all agreed that it was a grand way to raise fund s. However, th e next day we we re quite a different looking group of girls, for it was housecleaning day at the Alpha Sigma T au sorority apa rtment. From early morning until late afternoon dust flew , water splashed, and hands were never still a moment. Our apartment is now a lovely, shining thing to behold. The last Saturday in April was the date of our Rumm age Sale, another effective means of swelling the treasury. Since this is just about the time most people are fi nishing house-cleaning, we had a great many things to sell. J anet Hay, who was chairman of th e sale, was able to report that we had ga ined 16.00! E lection of officers was held on April 29, and we fee l that the girls we have elected will do well in their new positions. Officers-elect include: president, Irene Blazowski; vice-president, Barbara Conklin ; treasurer, Ingrid Ne lso n ; reco rding secretary, Eunice Little ; editor, Nan Hartman; co rrespo nding sec retary, Sophie Adan owicz; historian, Marguerite Bernard; custodian , Aulga Maye; chaplai n, Barbara Bennett. We have many interesting plans for the future , but the more immediate ones are the Installation Dinner, to be prepared by the pledges, an informal dance, and a Mother's Day party. We hope that the next half of the yea r will be as successful and pleasa nt as this half has been. MARGUER ITE BERNARD
IOTA CHAPTER We had two very clever rush parties this semester. One was a dance and the other was a ga mes party. The dance was called the "J ayhaw ker Stomp" because it was held on Kansas Day. The dance programs were little maps of Kansas with riv ers and towns ketched on them . The other deco rations were bright yellow sunflow ers, gaudy J ayhawkers, and meadowlarks suspended on wires from the ceiling. The identification ca rds (that were pinned on each girl) were little Kansas license plates. The games party was called "South Sea Island Cruise." The room was decorated with life savers (large inner t ubes painted white) with S.S. ALPHA TAU printed on each. The favors were little colored porters that carri ed trunks and suitcases with A ~ T stamped on them. Each bridge tabl e was cove red with a huge map of th e South Sea Islands and the Ca ribbea n.
The prize for high score was a little compact shaped in the form of a suitcase .. This year three of our g1rls were Initiated into national honorary fratermties: Louise Pruitt (one of our pledges) was initiated into Lambda Delta Lambda, science fraternity; Rosemary Haslouer was initiated into Kappa Mu Epsilon, mathematics fraternity; and Virginia Zajic, into Pi Kappa Delta, forensic fraternity. This second semester we pledged eleven grand girls. We were very proud of ~he fact that this was the thtrd consecuttve time that we had pledged more girls than any other sorority on the cam pus. Our pledges this semester ar.e : Parma Michels, Elizabeth Seaton , Ltla Rtley, Geneva Linthicum , Thelma Allen, Martha Kinsley, Louise Pruitt, Arnita Twibell , Phyllis Bennies, Anna May Lynn, Alene Sheeley. Our pledges have delighted in being different this semester, so every time that they were asked whether or not they were going to give a party they gave us a bl a n~ stare and asked, " Why, do we have to ? And then one evening they calmly announced that the next Saturday evening we were all invited to an informal party at the Country Club . The party was called the "All Fools Party." Tricky, misleading signs were tagged all over the place, and one sign that read "A fool and hts money are soon parted" changed occaswnally (and with a great deal of mystery ) to "A fool and his honey are soon parted.'' This year's annual Beaux Arts Ball was a great success--at least we think it was. Each year a Beaux Arts Queen and her attendents are chosen from the group of girls that have been submitted by various organizations. This year there were nineteen entries, and we were very proud when we found that our representative, Lila Riley, had been chosen as one of the Queen's attendants. Our spring dance party this year was called "Fantasy in Black and White," and was held in the Student Memorial Union. The walls were decorated with long white staffs on which were pasted black notes. On one side the notes played the "Sweetheart Song"-on the other side "I Love You Truly" and on the other " My Wonderful One.'' The rest of the decorations were sharps, fla ts, and clef signs on the posts and in the entrance. The favors were gold knives with A ~ 1' engraved on each. A good many of our alumnre were back for the party. VrRGINIA ZAJI ' '41
LAMBDA CHAPTER Lambda has been very busy during this past year. As well as our regular business meeting, we have had at least one speaker every month. Our speakers have been very intereoting. They have spoken about the "Art of Conversation ," " Getting along with others," " Personal appearance,'' and several other topics. This year Lambda was awarded, for the fourth successive year, the Pan~el足 lenic Scholarship Cup. We are working now towards getting it again. Soon after Christmas all of us and our mothers were guests of Phyllis Fleming, our president, and her mother for tea. We had a very enjoyable time. Lambda pledged five girls to her ra.nks in the past few months. One of the gtrls, Doris Kaufmann, was initiated soon afterward. Three others are to be initiated this month at our house party. On Washington's Birthday, we held our annual card party at Strawbridge & Clothier's. This was followed closely by two peppy rush parties, one a transportation party, the other a dinner party . . On Saturday, April 26, Lambda actives and pledges were entertained b~ the ~!urn足 me in the form of a progresstve dmner. The alumnre gave us a grand time as well as a fine dinner. We are lookin u forward eagerly to our house party thi~ spring. We are going to a camp near Collegville. Having always had a grand time in the past , we know what to expect this time. We are very sorry to say that, with the end of the school year, we will lose our grand sponsor, Mrs. Kirby. We wish that she did not have to leave us for she has been a wise and inspirational guide to the girls of Lambda durin" her years as our sponsor. Lambda wishes the best of luck, health and happiness to all Alpha igma Taus for the coming summer. BETTY Hooo
OMICRON CHAPTER On Wednesday night, March 12, eleven girls were initiated into Omicron chapter.

ward in the social room. The actives served pecan pie and coffee to the patronesses, new actives, and alumna:. Mrs. Meade McNeill, national vice-president, and Romaine Kanode ,alumna: repre:.entative, were also present. Betty Funk, '43 , was elected president of Omicron chapter at the annual election on April 16.

Of special interest to her many friends was the marriage of Linda Frigo, of Kimball , West Virginia, to Mr. Daniel Pochick on January 4, 19-ll. The bride wore a tan ensemble with blue accesso ries. H er co rsage was of yellow roses. Mr. Pochick is employed by the Koppe rs store at Elkhorn, West Virginia. Rena Pitotti , one of our new pledges, was recently elected president of the "Y'' for the coming year. She was also elected to the office of co rrespo nding secretary of the Eta chapter of Chi Beta Phi , hon ora ry science fraternity. Mary Kaluk was recently initiated into Pi Gamma Mu, national social science honor fraternity. Elsie Brenaman, Mary Beth Letsinger, Rena Pitotti , and Jean Richards were pledged into our group on the evening of April 3. Mary Lou Ellis was also pledged but later had to withdraw. J UANITA P ERRY
PI CHAPTER Summer vacation is almost upon us again , and as usual we're all looking forward to an exciting time. The Pi girls have been doing lots of interesting things latel y. To begin with, in J anua ry we gave our departing seniors ( Helen Croft, Lorraine Flotte, Hedwig Marcinkowski, Margaret Miller, Marie Morlan, Ruth Priebe, Lorraine Ulrich, and Lois Wam hoff ) a luncheon at the famous Rose Bowl in St. Louis. At the luncheon we presented each senior with a silver bracelet bearing the sorority monogram. In February we gave our pledges a Va lentine party. The decorati ons were
red and white. The entertainment consisted of a play, a piano solo, and a tap dance by our talented actives. On the twenty- fourth of February we initiated sixteen girls into the active chapter. February was also the month of the Valentine dance in the school gym and the JuniorSenior Prom . In March Pi chapter gave its annual bridge, and as always, it turned out to be a very successfu l affair. Rush season began March 20, and through rushing and open bidding, we pled<>ed three lovely girls : Mildred Hertel, Helen elso n, and Gwendolyn Powers. This brings us up to ou r an nual meeting and the election of office rs. The officers for the com ing year are: president, J ane Pratt; vice-president, Carolyn Co nner ; recording secretary, Ade le Oulvey; corresponding secretary, Ruth J ones ; treasurer, Ruth Ziegenmeyer ; chaplain, J oann a Barnes; historian, La Verne Foster ; custodian, Helen J ackso n, and ANCHOR editor, Florence Onder. I am su re that under the direction of these capable gi rls Pi will have a very successful yea r. Graduation day is Jun e 12, and three Pi se niors (Helen Klupe, T oni Surkamp, and Marilyn Kilburg ) are anxiously awa iting that very im portant date. Happy vacation days to all Alpha Sigs. We 'll be hearing fr om you again in September. MARILYN KILBURG
SIGMA CHAPTER Our Founder's Day Banquet and for mal initiation were held at the Buffalo Conistory. Dr. Quayle and Beverly Bollard were our guest speakers. We all had a grand time! Our December meeting was a Christmas Party given by Ma rion Sontheim and Gretchen Kautz. We played games, ate, and had fun. Esther Yackuboskie and Ruth Ochs each had a delightful meeting. We had our formal initiation in J anuary at the T ow n Club. Our February meeting was a Valentine Party given by Kathleen Goodman. It was a perfect party! Most of the gi rls went to the P anhel lenic Banquet at the H otel Buffalo in March. Dr. Quayle was the guest speaker. We had a booth at the "Y" Carnival. The theme of the carnival was fairy tales. We had Fairyland Bingo, based on "Fantasia .' On March ~1, we aave a dance, " kyline campers." ot only did we have a
THE AN C IIOR good time but we eve n made so me money on it ! We had a delightful joint meeting with the alumn re chapter in March. Our inform al rush party was at Marjorie Peirce's and E unice Tepas's home March 29. The house was converted into a "Ritzy Racetrack." DORIS WATERWORTH
CHI CHAPTER Being the baby in a large fam il y has certain disadvantages-but it may lead to increased effort and activity to raise its position. At least Chi chapter has found this to be so. It has not been possible to fall back on the phrase "they did it like this last year"-instead their task has been to establish the so rority on a solid footin g on the Shepherd College Campus. The season opened with a rush whi ch co ntinued throughout the semester. Febru ary saw us with nine good pledges. After the pledging ceremonies, the group was entertained with a party in the college gy mnasium . The latter part of February found practi call y th e whole student body on wheels - zooming round and round at a terrific rate of speed-the event being a rollerskating party at a near-by roller-rink , sponsored by them. With Ma rch-and the coming of Spring - they brought out all talents whi ch had laid latent during the winter months, and held a Penny Circus in the college gymnasium . Besides the numerous side shows -which included a real-honest-to-goodness fortune teller, J ean M illard , who has made a hobby of star-gazing, palmreading, etc.-they had a main show, which gave every member an opportunity to express herself. The acts included rollerskating dancers, ac robats, an interpretative dancer, a sword-swallowing act, tap dancers, and a death-defying dive fr om a fifteen -foot platform into a tub of water (which was stopped by the local policeman to the disappointment of all spectators ). Besides affording every member an enjoyable evening, the circus pleased the spectators, and was financiall y successful. Final initiation was held the last part of March. After the ceremony, everyo ne adjourned to the Crawford House and enjoyed a party give n by M iss Sara Cree, our sponsor. On April 3- between shakings and shiverings- nine members faced the micro-
phone for the ir initial experience. They presented an informal discussion on Alpha Sigma Tau and sang several of the sorority songs. This was presented over stat ion WJEJ, Hage rstown , Ma ryland. The climax of the year's activities was reached on April 18, when our first Spring Formal was held. The theme used was that of a penth ouoe- dancing on the roof and looking out on the skyline of ew Yo rk City. They were fo rt un ate in having Johnn y Sommer's Orchestra, called "The Youngest Swing Band in the Land." All the members of his band are fifteen or sixteen years of age, but they play good music, having played at the New Yo rk World 's Fair and in H oll ywood. The sorority entertained the Phi Chi so rority-the local social so rority- by a tea on April 26. The year's outstanding events closed with an assembly program, May 14. This co nsisted of a play, directed and presented by Georgia E ly, in connection with her course in play production. Chi chapter has had a busy seaso n. A so rority room has been acq uired, and much time has been spent in furnishing and deco ration. A coca-cola machine was installed and toasted sandwiches sold to increase finan ces. The members have wo rked to establish this so rority as an important orga nization on the campusone that the college officials will respect and adm ire. Plans for the future betterment of our chapter are being made. Past mistakes can be cor rected, and new ve ntures attempted. The baby will soo n no longer be a baby. At least it has taken its first steps. VlRGINJA H owARD
ZETA TAU CHAPTER Greetings from th e land of apple blosso ms, sp ring fever and the Zeta T aus! We're all so glad that spring has finally ope ned up agai n and that we have one more chance to say " hell o" to some of yo u while we are forced to say " farewell' ' to others. We want to do just a little bragging about our new " vic" records. We know that other chapters have records too, but it's a rare occasion which prompts us to buy ten new records at once. Wayne King's " Beca use'' and "Intermezzo'' have already held us entranced for hours. A new ruling was accepted th is quarter which said that no reco rd could be removed from the chapter roo m. Thi means that all the records will be there
when and if we want to listen to them. But of course we made concessions concerning "lending" to other sororities. January ushered in our winter "rush season," and in with the wind came twelve new pledges. Such a big number at one time called for a party in our chapter room for Rachel Ammen, Louise Andrews, Jean Arrington, Anne Henry, Inez Jones, Christine Pittard, Katherine Rucker, Doris Lowe, Evelyn Cannon , Dorothy Flowancy ers, Mary Katherine Ingram, Langhorne. As a part of our social service work for January, we decided to financially aid one child in the training school. This was our fi rst venture in this field , but it proved to be so successful that we're planning to gather another "lame duck" under our wing in the fall. By selling hot dogs once a week and also peddling pies we were able to make the last payment on our chapter room in February. Now our room really belongs to us- foot loose and fancy free! When sororities were established on our campus, each soro rity was offered the opportunity of buying a ro om , which was to be used as their own, in Student Building. Our ancestral Zeta Taus undertook the first payment and we feel as if we deserve a place in the Hall of Fame for making the final payment this year without any help. Amid valentines, gobs of candy and sentimental telegrams, we gathered in the tearoom for our annual banquet. After toasting almost everyone present, we gave our pledges little identification bracelets with the Alpha Sigma Tau Greek letters upon them. They rallied forth next day identified as Sigma T aus by the bracelets and that true Sigma Tau grin . Panhels, intermission party and millions of handsome men! We've finally come to the conclusion that we really are fickle because each year we agree that Panhels were better than last year's. With an excellent orchestra and smooth dancers we ca n't be wrong-especially with Nell and Louise Hall and their Techmen. March brought about elecEon of officers and Anne Turner was given the job of gavel swinge r for next year, wh ile Charlotte Greeley is to assist her as vice-president. With elections over and the new officers settled in their respective places, Faye chose to reveal the fact that she had "middle aisled" it with her Bill last February, a year ago. Had Faye not found housekeeping more attractive, she wou ld have represented our chapter in the May Court and our college at the Apple Bios-
som Festival in Winchester. We were all heartbroken to lose Faye, but when we finally real ized how happy she is, we grinned at each other and thought, "Some gals have all the luck!" As a chapter and as one who sincerely cares-all the happine:;s and good luck in the world to Mr. and Mrs. Bill Cross because we know that they deserve the best! When spring rushing came to an end, we found that we had five more pledges to add to our already over flowing list. They are: Katherine Price, Frances Powell , Eli zabeth Johnson, Mary Lee Pittard and Rebecca Spicer. Twelve seni ors are bidding our collegiate chapter farewell, but thirteen new members have been given the right hand of fellowship so that leaves us one over for good measure. Our new siste rs are: Rachel Am men , Louise Andrews, Jean Arrington , Anne Henry, Inez Jones, Christine Pittard, Katherine Rucker, Doris Lowe, Evelyn Cannon, Mary Katherine Ingram, ancy Langhorne, Ada Claire Snyder and Bridget Gentile . Comes May and the senior picnic at Longwood! . . . With excellent food in our tummies, and tears in our eyes, we began to realize intensely that our seniors are going to leave us . . . that they 're placing their faith and trust in our ability to carry on in the vacant places which they have left behind. Choking back our tears suffi ciently enough to sing" until the end, true friends we'll be," we wonder how we'll ever get anything done without consulting Faye and having her opi nion ; we wonder who will see that the chapter room is kept as clean as Helen Watts kept it; and whether we'll ever have as much fun again as we bad at the parties given by Charlotte Avery, Nancy Goode Bland and Coralee Gilliam . We think of Irene Alderman and Martha De Crawley because they were so wonderful about playing the " vic" records for us, and the thought of losing Frances Pritchett- our own vicacious Pritch whose love for Hampden-Sydney and the Theta Chis can never be surpassed-and the Hall twins, Nell and Lou, who seemed to he everywhere at one time and to have a finger in everything-well, the thought just overwhelms us! Then there are Jean Moyer, Dotty Rollins and Jean Martin , the logical, practical sisters who kept us from making many rash decision and regretting them later. Seniors, we want to take this with our chins up even though we are fri ghtened and weak without ou, but we're going to put ever ingle thing

that we have into those man-size jobs you left us and when you come back to see us next year you're going to be more than proud of "the gals you left behind." Exams and the Junior-Senior prom have attracted our attention to a great degree, but in spite of the excitement of graduation we hope that we're going to see some of you at our house party this summer. At any rate we'll be with you again in the fall; have heap bicr fun this summer! ANCY
UPSILON CHAPTER Although many important things have happened to us this semester, the greatest honor was the selection of our president, Lucille Evatt, as National Sigma Tau Gamma " Rose.'' Miss Evatt, who was crowned as Sigma chapter's candidate at the fratern ity's forma l banquet last year, was a warded the first place honor over ten other candidates from all over the United Stales by a committee of artists in Buffalo, ew York. Spring rushing resulted in ten lovely gi rls taking the pledge to become members of Alpha Sigma Ta u. They were Opal Halwes, Aline Bowers, Jerry Kennedy , Sue Maxwell , Margaret Compton, Priscilla Harvey, Ruth Hurst, Frances Jean Williams, and Margaret Stout. Other queenly honors have been heaped on the heads of our members. Dorothy Smyth was crowned Queen of the Phi Sigma Epsilon fraternity Springtime Dance. Dorothy Bess Wages was elected
Queen of Founder's Day. Frances Jean Williams was chosen to represent the freshman class as her maid on that day. Some of our new pledges also came in for their share of the honors. Frances Jean Williams and Ruth Hurst were elected to the Art Club along with old members, Mildred Smith and Dorothy Bess Wages. In our last class election Marjorie Richardson was elected to the office of secretary of the senior class, '路H-'-12. The marriage of two of our members has left vacant offices in the sorority. Dorothy Bes Wages has been elected to fill the office of corresponding secretary once held by Mildred Kitts who is now Mrs. Alvin Staerkel. Mae Dean Pyle was elected historian in place of Mrs. Malcolm Taylor, formerly Miss Joyce Cox. Another member of our so rority, Helen Moore, has also heard wedding bell this chool year. She is now Mrs. Van Elliot. Dr. Ada Jane Harvey, sponsor of the Upsilon chapter, Lucille Evatt, president, and Mildred Smith, custodian, spent February 15 in Hammond, Lousiana, inspecting the Phi chapter of the sorority at Southeastern Louisiana College. Our social events for the second semester included a patriotic dance held January 18, a picnic on Petit Jean Mountain , and the spring formal held May 3, in McAlister Hall. All in all this has been a most pleasant year for Alpha Taus on this campus and we're looking forward to an even better one next year. GLAE DICKERSON

BLUEFIELD ALUMNJE Our Christmas party was held at Millicent Miller's home in Princeton. She had a huge tree, which was deco rated beautifully, in one corner of her living roo m. H olly and evergreens, bells and wreaths we re put up everywhere giving the roo m a festive air. The refreshments carried out the Christmas colors of red and green. The favo rs were little Santa Claus dolls. Virginia J obe Miller's small daughter, JoAnna, sang "Merry Christmas to Yo u." Before we exchanged presents everyo ne played bingo. At C hristmas we gave a donation to the annual community Christmas tree in Bluefield, also one to the tree in Athen . Magazines, candy, and tobacco were bought for the County H ome. We were most fortun ate at our Janu ary meeting in having Mrs. Marietta McNeer, a member of the Concord faculty, with us. She gave two very interesting book reviews on Mrs. Miniv er by J an Struther and For Whom the B ell Tolls by Hemingway. At one of our meetings this year we voted to give each bride a piece of silver
or crystal in her pattern with the Alpha Sigma T au insignia on it. We have in our so rority three stages of so rority life in the same famil y. There are three sisters in the Richards family. Jean is an Alpha Sig prep ; J osephine is an Alpha Sig active, and Ann is an Alpha Sig Alumna. The officers selected for the comi ng year are: President- Beryl Lambert, who is the present editor.

At the October meeting each girl was asked to bring a ten cent gift to be exchanged with the one whose name she drew . Every one but Bula was told to bring a piece of crystal. The gifts we re numbered and the girls voted on the most original and attractive; Bula vvas on the committee to co unt the votes and open the winning package. Inside was a note telling her to open all the others, which she did, and was greatly surprised and thrilled at findin g a piece of crysta l · in her pattern in each one. T o Bula we owe our strength and unity.
She is the spirit around which we have built our organization. We honored her with t his little shower as a token of our love and sincere appreciation. BERYL LAMBERT
BUFFALO ALUMNJE Ou r Graduates' Party this year was most successful and the thirty girls who "caravaned" to Lucile Steen's charming home had an extra nice time. Five hopeful grad uates affiliated with the alumnre chapte r and were spotted amongst the rest by their very colorÂŁ ul corsages. A va ri ety of ga mes were played and everyone enjoyed being "young and gay." Delicious cake and coffee topped off the evening and the girls, reluctant to leave, continued to "chin" over the second cup of coffee. At the May Meeting at Eleanor Mason's home the new officers for the coming year will be elected. The program committee is also planning "somet hing different" (our after-meeting programs th is year have really been worthwh ile and have helped a great deal to encourage the girls to "come out"). J une, the mo nth of roses, brides, exams, et cetera is also the last chance to get together until Fall. T his year we are hav ing our annual picni c supper at Leah Simmons in iagara Falls. We are hoping for sunny skies and ca rl oads of Alpha Sigma Taus. And so, until we meet again By ANCHOR, visit, or by a letter We think of you in sun or rain And hope your Summer co uldn't be better Lors ANNE DRYER
CLEVELAND ALUMN.JE With the joys of Spring comes the ending of another happy successful year for the girls of the Cleveland Alumnre chapter. Meeti ngs have been interesting and well attended . Special consideration has been given to increasi ng t he budget. Our t reasury has grow n from the benefits of a bake sale held at t he home of Edythe McLellan. As a special project each girl has agreed to earn at least 2.00 before September. T here are various ways the girls are earning t his, si nce it was agreed that the money had to be earned and was not a contribution. For example, Edythe said he r " Kenny " glady agreed to pay her $2 .00 if she cleaned the cellar. The crowning event of the year took place Easter Mornin g when a 7 lb. 5 oz.
boy joined the Wick household. Carl Albert, as he was proudly named, is next in line for an Alpha Sigma Tau baby cup. (It is the custom of the Cleveland al umnre chapter to present each new baby with a silver drink ing cup.) Perhaps the attention given the budget was apropos, because there is a rumor that there may be more Alpha Sigma Tau babies, when THE ANCHOR goes to print again. Ruth Merrick has been working with the Industrial Relations Bureau in the employment department. Edith Siple entertained the girls and their husbands with a "scrumptious" party- the kind that only Edith can give. Dorothy Stadler is busy with the Girl Reserves at Central High where she is teaching. Helen and Gill Lutz are the proud owners of a new P lymouth. Marion Erickson has moved to Bo ton , Massachusetts. Bob has received an advancement in his work and both are happy in their new home. Jane Buck just can't stay put! She spent Easter vacation in Washington seeing the cherry blo3Soms. This was her story, but we always question Jane's excuses for such grand trips. Edythe McLellan has been spending her odd moments getting a vegetable garden ready to plant. Houses are in the mode again. Betty Schmied and Catherine Bozarth are the proud owners of new homes. Catherine also has given up her work to become chief cook and manage r of the new house. Mary Oetting has also said goodbye to an apartment and has moved into a house. We are looking forward to summer outings and a busy year again in the fall. CATHERINE BOZARTH
DETROIT ALUMNJE Theta chapter has been waiting to divulge some of its secrets to you sorority sisters. Cupid has again hit its mark as Evelyn Mettler, our president became Mrs. Victor Kitzul, and Rita Sauve, our former treasurer, changed her name to Mrs. Frank Metyko. The latter has moved to Benton Harbor where she and her husband are now residing. Diamonds have also been seen sparkling from the left hands of Mararet Sherwood and Betty Seuffert. Two of our alumnre, Helen Tucker Maki and Sally Kraetke Sprung have an added member to their families. No sorority, however, will ever make bids for them- they're both bo .
THE ANCHOR In reviewing our social events, the annual Valentine Ball is still a happy memory. Amid gala decorations of hearts and balloons, the girls danced till the wee hours of the morning at the Whittier. Tentative plans are made for these social events-Mother's Day and the June graduates party. Our mother's will be the guests at a luncheo n at the Women's City Club. The future graduates will he feted at a dinner sometime in June. So sorority sisters, the Detroit chapter will be waiting to chat with you again and wishes all of you a very enjoyable summer. R UTH SCHILLING
EMPORIA ALUMNJE The first Saturday of each month has been the meeting day of our chapter and the attendance has been unusually good. In J anuary E th el Beck was hostess with Mrs. Nason assisting. Mrs. Shebilsky, assisted by Mrs. Whitaker entertained the group in February. Then in March we went to Mrs. J ackson's and Leta Ulrich came the forty miles fr om Hamilton to help her. Ester Griffith and Mrs. Finkbiner were hostesoes at Ester's in April. After the business meetings, the aftern oons were finished by playing bridge. Ethel and Dr. Partridge moved at Christmas to a new home at 1617 Rural. We reall y had the most fun one evening in J anuary when we and our husbands surprised Ethel by goi ng to see her. We had our suppers with us and invited her and Doctor to eat with us. We found that she certainly has an attractive house and Ethel proved to be an excellent inpromptu hostess. In May, the group planned to entertain the collegiate girls with a picnic on May Day. Instead we were saddened by the loss of Perle Da ll by death, and the money intended for the picnic was given to the Memorial Fund in honor of Perle. The colleg!ate and alumn re girls attended the fun eral in a group-fifty- fiv e of us. Eight out of town girls came for our last meeting on earth with Perle.
FLINT ALUMNJE Our chapter has made its sacrifice in the interest of national defense, for the work of Sarah Perrine's huband has taken them to Washington, D.C. No one could have been a greater loss to the Flint chapter, for it was only through Sarah's initiative and determination that the group was organized.
Honoring Sarah before her departure, Eloise Crow entertained at a tea. Among the thirty-five guests were all lhe local sorority members, with Gretchen Gaffney , president, presiding at the tea services the latter part of the afternoon . Sarah will make her home in the Warwick apartments, 3051 ildaho avenue. Meeti ngs: In December, twelve little girls from the Whaley Home were given a Christmas party in the recreation room of Grace Abbey's home. The other hostesses were Luella Clapp and Pauline Wood. The J anuary meeting was a Keeno party given by Louise Tobey and Sarah Perrine. For February, E loise Crow, Alice Merrick, Lucille Gale and, Crystal Hea rn acted as ho3tesses for a benefit bridge of eighteen tables with patriotic colors carried out in the appo intments. The proceeds went to augment the scholarship loan fund . Norma Wheeler and Pauline Dempsey were hostesses for the chapter's March anniversary dinn er. Presenting the history of the sorority as written by Carrie Staehle and as read at all 1940 district meetings was a feature of the evening. The four decades were given by Harriet Pfeiffer, Crystal Hearn, Shirley Green , and Louise T obey respectively. In April , Shirley Green and E loise MacDonald ente rtained the group at dessert. During the business meeting, it was decided to drop .the Whaley Home social work and to in vestigate the possibilities of sending a girl to a Y.W.C.A. camp as the social project for next year. The May luncheo n included guests from active chapters in Ypsi lanti , Detroit, and Mt. Pleasant and from alumn re chapters in Lansing and Detroit . The attractiveness of the luncheon was due to the planning of Geraldine Shugart and Janet Beehler. This year, the usual closing picnic was at Mae Mosier's in Otisville. L UCILLE GALE
JOHNSTOWN ALUMNJE At our J anuary meeting, we had two excellent book reviews by Gra ce Nelso n Moors and Dorothy Risch. Grace ably reviewed that lengthy novel, Children of Cod, by Vard is Fisher; and Dottie had us actuall y living the horrors and thrills of Mary Schumann 's Strife Befor e Dawn. The hostess, Edith Paul, tested our knowlP.dge of Juni or High School literature, with surprising resu lts, I blush to
admit. Surely there must have been many secret resolutions to brush up on fiction after the revelations of that little quiz. The February meeting at Jane Snow's home was spent planninrr a valentine party for the Delta chapter. Mrs. Gasslander and the Delta girls came over from Indiana in the school bus to Alwine's Privadyne where the party was held. The valentine theme was caried out in the table decorations and in the name badges that each girl wore pin ned on her dress. This was really our ftrst opportunity to become acquainted with our nearest collegiate chapter and we certainly enjoyed having them with us. The next month Margaret Pfarr entertained at her home with a spelling bee. Unfortunately, the night was so cold and stormy that many girls were unable to attend, but those who braved the storm were well repaid for their efforts. Each of us invited a friend to the Apri l meeting, and we had a grand party. Edith Furst and Betty DeFrehn McClintock, the hostesses, had many lively games planned, with attractive prizes for the winners. The mental strain of trying to solve a few brain teasers aroused our appetites, and the tasty refreshments were eaten with relish. Our " Guest Party" is always one of the high-lights of the year. In Ju ne, we meet with Dottie R isch for a steak fry- the last fun night for the sorority before vacation . JANE STOMBA UG H SNOW
NORFOLK-PORTSMOUTH ALUMNJE Our year's activity would not be complete without a meeting with the newly formed Richmond chapter. On April 26, a number of our members deserted the Cape Henry Pilgrimage, which incidentally celebrated the 334th anniversary of the landing of the first permanent English settlers in the New World , to attend a most enjoyable luncheon at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Virginia. It was wonderful associating with those girls, forty of them, many of whom we haven't seen since college days. To renew old friendships, as well as form new ones, is indeed an advantage in being a member of a national sorority. Our adorable little orphan, at the Edgewater Home for Girls, wa not overlooked by the Easter Bunny. Being a tiny miss of two and a half years, it is easy to see how our chapter members look forward to vi iting the orphanage whenever the
occasion arises, be it in the form of the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, or a gorgeous fairy with a gaily bedecked May basket. I really believe our chapter is spoiling this golden curly-haired, blue-eyed angel! As the year draws to a close and the evenings begin to lengthen, the warm air blows in from the Atlantic Ocean, and our members think of the final chapter meeting. Whether it is a picnic to historic Yorktown, an outing to Virginia Beach , a supper at Jean West's "in the country,'' or a jolly meeting at Abbye Edwards', we all feel that the year will end with a fine spirit of co-operation, lasting companionship, and endearing memories of th o e we call "si ters." That ever busy little fellow, Dan Cupid, never fails to visit our chapter. Indeed, with his tiny arrow , he has pierced the heart of our capable pre ident. For now , Dot is wearing a lovely "sparkler." And during the summer, unles "Uncle am" steps in , Dot will trip to the altar, and then say "farewell " to the chapter- but not without our best wishes for a life of happiness. ALFREDA

PH ILAD ELPHIA ALUMN JE Our first meeting in 19-H was as scheduled, a luncheon at one of our mid-city restaurants on Saturday, January 18. Following the luncheon, a business meeting was held, at which time we made a ew Year's resolution to try to make all of our future meetings fuller, richer and truly worthwhile-so that each one of our members would be anxious to attend . We thought the best way to start would be by doing some form of charity work in which all could have a share. We decided to buy wool and knit an afghan to be sent to Britain. After adjournment of the business meeting, Alice Mo teller very ably presented brief and interesting reviews on eight new books. Our February meeting, held at the home of Mildred Day, in Philadelphia , and the March meeting, held at Mabel Schreiber's apartment in Norwood, after some business, turned out to be social service meetings with every one knitting on -l-inch squares for the afghan. Our April meeting on Saturday afternoon the 19th ended as a musical at the home of Becky Rook in Chester. On Saturday, April 26, the alumme entertained the collegiate chapter at a progressive dinner with stop planned in outlying ection of Philadelphia . \ e had I t
THE ANCHOR of fun, starting at Jackie Pospichal 's in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, for tomato juice cocktails and ending up in Chester at Beckie Rook's for dessert, with two stops in Norwood, in between for so up and the main course, at Mabel Schreiber's and Clarice Collins' respectively. It was a grand opportunity to become better acquainted with the present members of Lambda. There were about 28 present in all, actives and alumnre . In looking back over the three months since the beginning of this year we of Philadelphia alumnre derive satisfaction in realizing a feeling of success in accomplishment of plans made. Our afghan is completed and we all enjoyed doing it. (It's good looking, too, with many thanks to Alice Mosteller who did such a good job in joining the sq uares and croocheting such a lovely edge to give it a finishing touch.) We have supported the active chapter as much as possible . Our meetings have been attended by an average of twelve alumnre, which is fairly good attendance for a group scattered so far apart with such varied interests. We believe we have attained, probably better than previously, fulfillment of the sorority's aims of educati on, charity and sociability. Our efforts next year will be toward further developm ent and a laraer membership. o N. VIRGINIA BuRKE
RICHMOND ALUMNlE Our meetings as an alumnre chapter have been most interesting and pleasant. We meet each month in the home of a member for a sho rt business meeting and a program of some kind, followed by a little social hour together. At our December meeting we had a most interesting speaker who gave some readings of current singers and writers. At the January meeting we had five of the newer books reviewed by a very delightful person who made the reviews even more interesting by her pleasing personality. For Christmas we sec ured a name of a needy family from the Social Service Bureau and took them baskets of food and clothing. We enjoyed doing this for the good cheer and happiness it brought those people. From our interesting programs and our Christmas project we feel very pleased and much benefited . VIRGINIA WINSTON SMTTH
WAR ALUMNlE War alumnre held their first meeting September 20. Plans were made for the installation of the chapter in October and a year-book was compi led. On October 19, Mrs. Bula McNeill , fourth district president, came to War and installed the chapter. Ruth Harless attended the fourth district co nvention in Farmville, Virginia, November 2-3 . This was the main discussion of the November business meeting. In December, Edith Elliott was hostess for the Christmas party. Gifts were exchanged and everyone was pleased with her " nothing over a quarter." At the January meeting Mellie Mustard entertained the group with movies of her vacation spent in the Northern United States and Canada. The High Hat Grill was the scene of the George Washington dinner to which husbands and beaux were invited. During the March meeting a thorough check-up was made of each officer and her work for the year. The April meeting had to be postponed, consequently there is no report for this meeting at which new officers were to have been elected.

WELCH ALUMNlE December: After our regular meeting which was held in the playroom of the Palace of Sweets we had a Christmas
party with Elizabeth Crotty, Julia White and Melba and Myra Hurt as hostesses. The holiday motif was carried out in the decorations which were featured by a lovely Christmas tree as the center of an effective winter scene. Pollyanna gifts were arranged under the tree and miniature trees were used on each of the tables as centerpieces. A part of our charity project for the month was a donation to the Salvation Army. The Christmas greetings from our sister chapters of other states and cities were very happily received . January : Miss Virginia Presto n and Mrs. George Bagley, Jr. were hostesses at a yellow rose dinner at the horne of Miss Preston. Bowls of yellow roses stood in the candlelit dining room where each member found attached to her place card a lovely corsage of yellow roses tied with green and yellow ribbon. Centerpieces for the table were ye llow candles in star shaped crystal holders. A delicious dinner was served. We gave the collegiate chapter candle holders for Ch ristmas. We donated to the endowment fund and to the chapter room at Concord. March : Our St. Patrick's Day dance which was held in the ballroom of the Moose Hall was a great success. The main attraction of the decoration was A.S.T. in large green letters on a yellow background. The letters were made from shamrocks. Programs in shamrock shape were given to each couple. During intermission a delectable party plate was served at tables wh:ch were overlaid with green and white covers.
April: At our April meeting, which was a dinner meeting held in the Carter Coffee Shoppe, it was decided instead of electing officers that the present officers would step up one office, the last office to be filled by election. May : After a review of this year's work and installation of officers we attended a final get together party at the horne of Clara Peraldo.
WILLIAMSPORT ALUMNJE Our first ge t-together of the new year was a "White Elephant Auction." Each girl brought her "White Elephant" cleverly wrapped so that its contents were concealed. Helen Thomas, the auctioneer, kept our interest and bids high. A donation was given to the Crippled Children's Society. The main purpose of the February meeting was the compiling of our scrapbook. It was a great deal of fun . . . cutting, pasting, and rem embering past experiences. We decided to contribute to the Effie Lyman Scholarship Fund . Our next meetings were held out of town. In March we went to West Milton where we celebrated St. Patrick's birthday in true Irish style. In May we were the guests of our Jersey shore al urnn<e at the Riverview Tea Room. The annual election of officers was held. The results are as follows: president, Eleanore Wolf; vice-president, Violet anders; secretary, Mrs. Edith Wrigh t; treasurer, Ellen Harding; historian, Mary Holbrook; chapter editor, Marianna Tallman ; and welfare chairman, Mrs. Mary Edla Tietbohl.
FORWARD We can 't stand still! We can't stand still! Each thought we have Each breath we breathe to word In some way, touches others In some way touches others And thoughts are mothers And words can either Of the deeds we do. Bless or kill These deeds are ever good or ill Only the freedom of our will We do not live alone Can turn our word to aood So all we do must be And not to ill. To some one, either bad or goodly will.
