THE ANCHOR OF ALPHA SIGMA TAU Our Sorority /'1 CCORDING to the cycle of activities adopted six years ago, our nar\ tional convention should have been held this year. The convention city had been chosen and many of the plans made when in June we began to be doubtful of our being able to hold the conclave because of travel restrictions. Finally on July 1, the ational Council voted to postpone the convention. The Sigma Sigma Sigma and Theta Sigma Upsilon conventions were also postponed. In place of the convention a Meeting of the National Board was held in Detroit, the minutes of which appear in this magazine. Five years ago in order to enter THE ANCHOR as fourth class mail and thus receive reduced postage rates, the National Council voted to publish four copies of the magazine each year. The budget did not allow enough money for four large issues and so it was decided to use the September number for the annual reports of the sorority. These reports are of interest only to Alpha Sigma Tau members, and so we do not exchange this issue with other sororities. Members are asked not to let others outside our sorority read the October number. It is hoped, however, that each chapter will study the reports and note how its activities compare with those of other chapters. The sorority is indebted to Mary Louise Doyle, who has been national editor since 1929. The magazines have always been artistic, interesting, and punctually published. I hope that this year chapter editors cooperate fully with the national editor so that her work will be as easy as possible. She can publish only what is sent to her so let's have good contributions. Mrs. Doyle lives in Peekskill, New York , with her small daughters, Loyola and Patricia. Her husband, Major Doyle, is overseas for the duration. Step by step Alpha Sigma Tau has been developing its organization. An important step was completed this summer when our national song book was printed. When we became national , Sigma chapter, under the direction of Josephine Choate, printed a small book. A few years ago, while Blanch Smink was music chairman, the songs and music which we had were mimeographed. Sarah Perrine became music chairman in 1939 and during the past three years she has urged each chapter to write a new sona every year. The cooperation has been good, and so this summer Mr . Perrine had collected enough songs to make a very interesting song book. Mr . Perrine's contribution to the sorority i outstanding. Because of her excellent knO\Yledge of mu ic she wa able to rewrite parts of the ong where neces ar and to manage alone the editing of the book . The new book rna_ b

ordered from the Central Office for fifty cents. Each new initiate is required to buy a song book. A second step which we have been working on for three years was the fo rmulation of a Creed. We had our motto, initiation service, and secrets but no one of these things contained all the ideals and aims of the Sorority. At the last convention the ritual committee, of which Mary Alice Seller is chairman did some work on a Creed and a few chapters sent in suggestions during the past year. Consideration was given to all these suggestions and at a recent meeting of the committee, a Creed was formulated which was enthusiastically accepted by the National Council. The Creed contains no new ideas but merely states in five beautiful lines the beliefs of an Alpha Sigma Tau member. It will be published in all news letters and in the first C. 0. B. Through her work as ritual chairman Miss Seller has deepened the loveliness of Alpha Sigma Tau and we are most appreciative of her work. Our steps have brought us to the threshold of Alpha Sigma Tau's fortythird year. What shall we do as we enter the doorway of a new year? Our first concern will be to do our part in the war effort. The National Board d;d not think that we should start some new project as a sorority but rather that we should cooperate fully with existing projects in our communities and colleges. In giving up our convention and in buying bonds with the money saved the national organization set an example for economy and the curtailment of social activities. Margaret MacDonald is our national defense chairman. For the sorority our aim is expansion- more collegiate and alumnre chapters. Perhaps we shall not have much success now but at least we can make plans whi ch can materialize when the war is over. I think that the need for sororities is more evident than ever for they stress friendship , loyalty, and ideals. In thankfulness for our privilege of sorority membership we should endeavor to make our ideal s a vital factor in daily living. A point I stressed during my inspection talk last fall was that sorority membership never ends. I hope that each member is conscious of that thought this year and will do whatever she can to make 1942-43 as progressive as the preceding years have been. May each step we take help bring the sorority closer to the fulfillment of its purpose. CARRIE W. STAEHLE, Na tional President

EFFICIENCY A 路calendar is sent out each year from the Central Office giving a chart of the sorority's activities and the dates upon which reports and letters are due. In the following tables, on time counts 2; late, 1 ; -and not sent, 0. The editor of THE ANCHOR gives 3 points to a chapter that sends material on time and in good form. Iota is to be congratulated for having a perfect score- the first time that any chapter has achieved one. For two years Iota has has received the efficiency prize having had the highest, although not a perfect score. Alpha and Chi are also outstanding in that they lack only one point of having the required 3 7 points. Cleveland , Bluefield, and Flint win the awards in the alumnre group - the first time for Cleveland, the second for Flint, and the third for Bluefield. Chapters need to concentrate on writing histories as only four collegiate chapters and seven alumnre chapters sent in histories the past year. The national historian reports in addition that chapters should remember that if an extension of time is needed, national officers are always willing to grant it and will not count reports late if they are sent as promised. The perfect score for collegiate chapters is 3 7; fo r alumnre 25. Special recognition should be given this year to Alpha, who sent in 12 years' history, to Norfolk-Portsmouth, who sent in six years', Cleveland who sent in five years', and Iota, who has completed hers from her founding date. Chapters which have completed all of their histories through 1941-1942 and in good form: Iota, Chi, Lansing, Welch, orfolk-Portsmouth, and Philadelphia.

THE REPORT OF THE HISTORIAN-CHAPLAIN ELLEN S. MA SON The historian's records have been organized and filed in an orderly and accessible manner, including the news letters and histories which have come in this year. Only four co11egiate and eight alumnre chapters sent in any history this year, although numerous cards and letters were written. Iota, Chi, Lansing, Welch , N orfolk-Portsmouth , and Philadelphia have completed, in good form, their histories from their founding date through this year. Two other alumnre chapters would be in this group were it not for the form used . Omicron and Johnstown are complete with the exception of 1941 -1942. Special mention should be made this year of Alpha, who sent in twelve years history, Norfolk-Portsmouth, who sent in six, Iota, who sent in seven, and Cleveland , who sent in five. Articles from Frat e1路nity Month and Banta's Greek E xchange, containing suggestions, which our ational Officers might use, were clipped and sent to them. With the aid of Miss Virginia Bedford, a most attractive Memorial Book was donated to the sorority and a fronti spiece was made. Cards were written to obtain the names of those who should be memorialized at the next convention.

THE REPORT OF THE ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATION SORORITIES REPRESENTATIVE EDITH L. MA SELL On November 28 a special meeting of the Association of Education Sororities was held in New York City at the same time as the meeting there of the National Panhellenic Congress. Since it was impossible for me to be present, Mrs. Doyle acted as the substitute. The main business of this meeting was to discuss the future plans for the affiliated Panhellenics. The number of member sororities in the Association of Education Sororities was reduced to six when Pi Delta Theta merged with Delta Sigma Epsilon in September. During the year 1941-1942 Sigma Sigma Sigma installed chapters at Murray, Kentucky, and Charleston, Illinois; Alpha Sigma Alpha at Radford, West Virginia; and Theta Sigma Upsilon at Harrisonburg, Virginia. Annual report blanks for the Association of Education Sororities were sent to forty-six local Panhellenics. Up to the present not quite thirty have been filled out and returned to me. Some of you who are connected with these Panhellenics may be of help if you will check to see if your report has come in. A tabulation of the number of pledges and members in each chapter of all Association of Education Sororities as of December, 1941 , was made with the assistance of the national president. The usual correspondence was carried on. THE REPORT OF THE NATIONAL EDITOR MARY LouisE DoYLE Four issues of THE ANCHOR were published during the school year 1941-1942.
