THE ANCHOR OF ALPHA SIGMA TAU A Pledge "God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always willing to guard and defend it ." DANIEL WEBSTER- 1834
EALIZING that Total War demands of us not only many sacrifices, but also a vast amount of unpretentious monotonous unrewarded effort, we, of Alpha Sigma Tau will, to the best of our ability. Carry out our daily tasks, at home and school, cheerfully and efficiently. Sacrifice willingly for the cause of democracy. Take advantage of the opportunities to cooperate with the community in Civilian Defense activities, conservation campaigns, and salvage drive . Volunteer for service with the Red Cross, the U.S .O. and all organization working for the welfare of the armed forces. Give of ourselves, whenever we can and as often as possibl e, by donating to the Blood Bank. " Buy a share in America," by the regular purchase of war bonds and stamp . Have faith in the future of America and the democratic way of life. Look forward with courage and optimism to the day when there will be a just and lasting peace.
2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
From the time of the attack at Pearl Harbor Alpha Sigma Tau has been engaged in various activities to promote the war effort. Although practically every defense activity has been undertaken, this report must necessarily be general in theme and does not include every phase of the work being carried out by Alpha Sigs. Subsequent reports will present these phases more in detail. As a national group we willingly made our first sacrifice by giving up our national convention which was to have been held in Cincinnati in August 1942. In place of the convention a national board meeting was held in Detroit, at which the following resolutions regarding national defense were adopted. 1. That Alpha Sigma Tau cooperate with the Association of Education Sororities in defense projects. 2. That Alpha Sigma Tau, as a sorority, support the war effort in every way possible. 3. That Margaret M. Macdonald be appointed National Defense Chairman for Alpha Sigma Tau.

The Stars and Stripes*
WO tough but efficient American army sergeants sit in a London Times office surrounded by sheafs of yellow copy paper, scissors and paste. Men in uniforms of the United States fighting forces rush through the halls of this building; the dignified gentlemen of the London Times saunter. Into the conference room where for more than a century policies have been shaped and governments overthrown, smoke of American cigarettes and American slang now penetrate. Never before in its venerable existence has the office of the staid London Times heard such talk: "Listen . I want that comic strip an' I want it now. We'll have to move the Hollywood leg picture inside to make room for the Mediterranean map on page one . . .. Tell that palooka in the composing room I wanna see him." But a London Times man concedes, " They know their jobs. " This is the setting for the new Stars and Sttip es. The old Stars and Stripes, read by the two million Americans of the first AEF, was plfblished in the office of a Paris newspaper. Among the by-lines of that paper were such names as Alexander Woollcott, Franklin P. Adams, Wallgren, the cartoonist, Joyce Kilmer, Grantland Rice, and H. R. Baukhage. The Stars and St1路ipes was born in the back room of a little shop in the Rue St. Jean in the town of eufchateau in France, which in the cold January days of 1918 was used as the Field Press headquarters of the AEF. There amid the groaning of frustrated foreign correspondents about censorship regulations and gruff orders for more wood for the stove, the idea for an army newspaper dropped on fertile ground. 路 * I am grateful to The Publishen' Attxiliary, June 1 , 19-12, and J a nuar for the information in this editorial.

THE ANC HOR
At the outset, they faced the problem of circulation. After all, their readers would be itinerant fellows and their itineraries took them into some precarious spots. But Captain Waldo hopefully asked Colonel Mosely fo r fifty Ford trucks. " Fifty Ford trucks! " exclaimed Colonel Mosely. " I could just as easily let you have fifty angels, captain ... . Why, do you realize that we can mount a machine gun in a Ford truck? " " You can transport 5,000 copies of the Stars and Stripes in a Ford truck, and 5,000 copies of the Stars and Stripes are more important to the success of this war than a machine gun. " And fifty Ford trucks loaded with bundles of St ars and Stripes went bouncing their devious ways over the road of France. Once, one of these Fords unsuspectingly dipped, rose, and curved into an equally unsuspecting village. The driver slammed on the brakes just in time to avoid running down a group that wore the field gray of the Germany army. The Germans fell on the bundles of papers, tearing them apart. T hen, they shook their heads and smiled at their potential prisoner , " Go peddle your papers." Like other newspapers, the Stars and Stripes displayed advertising, but unlike other newspapers, not so much for revenue. It was good fo r the morale of the soldiers, they explained, to know that Ivory soap still floated that Mr. Walkover was still making a shoe, and that Wrigley gum had not lost its flavor. When the late Alexander Woollcott paddled into the office for the first time, he had to surmount the mi sgivings of the staff . What did they want of a drama critic? And how come he wore a sergeant's stripe ? But for the Stars and Strip es, Woollcott wrote tearful stories of the front. "Verdun Belle," about a setter who was waiting faithfully for her master when he was carried from the battlefield seriously woun ded, supported Woollcott for years, for it was reprinted in nearly every American periodical except the Wall Street Journal and the Harvard Alumni Monthly . Once General John ]. Pershing's nam e appeared in this paper wedged between those of Y.M.C.A. secretaries. The Stars and Stripes had launched a campaign to urge units of the AEF to adopt a French war orphan. The campaign was successful, fo r 3,444 homeless children were adopted . When General Pershing, commander in chief, sent in the money for two orphans, he instructed the paper to give him no publicity. His request was granted . The new Stars and Stripes, now published in the London Times building, has a tradition to uphold . Hutton and Price, those " two tough but efficient American sergeants," are unkn own names today, a are many others on the staff. But no one acquainted with the old Stars and Stripes would ever risk any wager that they always will be. Lucn.LE GALE, Flint Alumncc Editor's Not e : An edition of Th e Stars and Stripes is now being published in Algiers for the U.S . forces on the North African front. The first editi on appeared in the early part of December and its editor, Sgt. Robert Neville was former news editor of Tim e magazine. The paper on which Th e Stars and Stripes is printed had been hidden by fr iendly French and held until the arriva l of the Americans, despite months of ea rching for new print by Axi parties. Although American-made, th e type etting machines present orne difficultie路 in far as they have no dollar signs, and other characters eldom employed in the French alphabet are tucked away in corners of the keyboard.
TIJE AN C H OR
Quoting from the December 11 London edition of Th e Stars and Stripes, we read : " Such a publication was neve r needed more. It wa a somewhat funn y, but inspiring, spectacle to see U. S. troops poring over F rench language papers, attempting to learn what was happening on the wo rld battlef1:onts. '"The American thirst for news was hard to satisfy here. French- English di cti onaries disappeared long ago and radio receivers are unobtainable. Last month 's footb all scores have been passed around verba ll y as hot news."
Life Memberships DEAR ALPHA TAU SISTERS:
0 DOUBT you have scanned the list of " paid up" and " partiall y paid " life memberships with a great deal of interest. It is an impressive li st , is it not? It is most gratifying to see how rapidly the li st of paid life memberships is growing. I 'm sure each of you gets a thrill out of joining the parade, just as I do each time I can add a name to the list. However, if you have looked in vain , and with some d isappoin tment , fo r your name, and have not found it in either li st, you may assume that the allotted time has elapsed since you made your Ia t payment, and therefore you are on the " expired" list. But every cloud has a silver lining, and so has this. It was cleciclecl at the na tional board meeti ng last summer that any girl who had ever paid any money toward a life membership should be given another chan ce to fini sh her payments. So, you soon will receive a double card with inform ation about amounts paid and balance clue. We hope that you will fill out the card and return it to us at once so that you may be put back in the open file. Eventually we hope to have a hundred per cent paid up li fe membership in Alpha Sigma Tau. This is a grand opportuni ty fo r those of you who have made some payments to save yourselves money by sendin g in your card and completing your payments. Realizing that you girl s are all extremely busy in your war work , and that it takes some " remembering" to remember everything at the proper time, we suggest that you keep your half of the card in a place where you will frequently see it. This will remind you in advance to make your payments. Or better still , why not send in the balance all at once and yo u won 't have to remember! You know you don ' t want to miss THE A ' CHO~ and announcements, you don 't want to lose track of old and dear friend ! In fact , you don 't want to mi ss any of the privileges of bei ng a li fe member of Alpha Sigma Tau! Affectionately and sincerely yours, CECIL BARRETT Life M emb ers hip Chairman

What Does Alpha Sigma Tau Mean to You?
ECAUSE it is always so difficult to put into words our fe elings in regard to our sorority, ometimes we are apt to just let our minds slide over the question. Often, ~ve forget in a small measure the ideals and principles to which we pledged ourselves. Right after Chri stmas, the pledges of the Upsilon chapter at Conway, Arkansas, presented their customary pledge program. F irst, they each sa id a little rhyme, telling their name and one characteristic. T hey sang a cute路 little song about our president who was graduating, and also a pledge song of their own composition. Then , they read the following essay which had been written by one of them . It 's hard to tell how impressive the serv ice was. All the lights in the room were out ; only the crest was lighted. All the pledges, dressed in white, were arran ged in a semi-circle around the lighted crest, and as one of them read the essay, the others hummed softly our hymn. This is what was read: WHAT PLEDGING ALPHA SIGMA TAU MEANS TO US We tried and tried to put our thoughts in to poetry , but there were so many things we wanted to say that wouldn't rhyme, that finally , we just put our feelings as best we could in just plain words. Bei ng an Alpha Sigma Tau pledge is a wild exhilaration that catches in your throat and throbs painfully in your heart. It's a strength surging thro ugh your blood . . . a strength that helps you hold your head high, your shoulders back, and your chin up ; a strength that helps you face each new day with a steady faith for what it may bring. It's a strength that's reinforced by grasping your anchor a little tighter, by swinging it a little more proudly ; a strength that's multiplied a thousand times with each glance downward to see shinin g there, on your very own bosom for all the world to see, ALPHA SI GMA TAU. It 's a happiness .. . a happiness of belonging, of bei ng a part, if on ly a pledge, of a sisterhood. It's a happiness of sharing, experiencin g, of li ving. It 's a gladness that you 're one of those girls that omeone " wants to, ought to and is going to know. " It's an inspiration .. . an inspi ration to study just a little harder, to wash your face and roll your hair at night, to make your bed in the morning. It's an inspiration for Ji ving in the full est possible way. It's a fri endliness . .. not a clannish type of friendliness, but a sincere feel ing of friendliness for everyone. It 's a tolerance ... a tolerance that is your constant companion in the classroom, in the dormitory, at home and in all other associations. It's a responsibility to keep alive whatever those reasons might have been that awarded you with an Alpha Tau bid in the first place. It 's a remedy .. . the best one we know fo r hom esickness, discouragement , and low ego. It 's a hope, full of all tho e feelings you experi enced when you first saw your name written below an Alpha Sigma Tau emblem. It's a loyalty . . . to the sorority, to your family , to yourself, and above all to God. It 's a love . . . a deep, personal un selfi sh love that grows every day while we are living all of these things that bei ng a pledge means to us. It a love for you- ALPHA SIGMA TAU- and fo r each of you , our future sisters.

Alumnce Chapter Presidents BECKLEY ALUMNJE Marie Bruster is the president of the Beckley alumnce chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau for the year 1942-43. She attended Concord State Teachers College where she became a member of the Omicron chapter of our sorority. In 1932 she went to school at Montgomery and was a member of Delta Theta Pi, social sorority. She has belonged to the Beckley alumnce chapter for the past seven years. One year she served as chaplain and last year she was vice-president. Besides her sorority activities she is very active in orga.nizations of the city. She now serves as second vice-president .of the Central Grade School Parent-Teachers Association; she is a group leader of the Missionary Society of the First Christian Church of Beckley; she is a member of two bridge clubs, and a member of the U.S.O. club. CLEVELAND ALUMNJE Jane Buck had been elected president of the Cleveland alumnce chapter. Plans were made for another successful, active year similar to the one completed under the guidance of Helen Wick. Cleveland was proud of their 100% efficiency record , but prouder indeed when they could be of service to their country by giving a "top-notcher" to the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps. Jane entered the Officers Candidate School August 17 at Fort Des Moines to join the thirrl training class. The course was difficult and strenuous at all tirr:es but Jane, a true Alpha Sigma Tau, was ;not daunted. Heavy courses, army discipline and routine drills filled every minute of the day. "Now that I've lived through it and have time to think ," says Jane, " Everythi;:1g was wonderful." This remark followed graduation September 26 when she was commissioned as 3rd Officer, the equivalent of a 2nd Lieutenant. Before joining the W AAC, Jane was a teacher in the elementary school of Vermillion, Ohio for six years. She received her teaching certificate from Kent State University. Since the Cleveland alumnce chapter was formed, Jane has been active and always ready to help in all projects. Her experience in the business world, her professional attitude, radiant personality and good nature are going to make her an asset to the WAAC. During her furlough before being assigned to active duty, she visited her mother who will continue to live in Vermillion, Ohio. The Cleveland chapter entertained her for dinner at Higbee 's Silver Grill. It was a proud group of Alpha Sigma Taus who escorted her to her table in a crowded restaurant. Jane's stately 5' 7", in immaculate uniform caused all eyes to be turned her way. Stationed at the Daytona Beach Training Center, Jane has recently been promoted to Battalion Executive Officer and is working on rules and regulations to govern the companies and promote unity in organization. CATHERINE BRINK BozARTH,
EMPORIA ALUMNJE The president of our alumnce group, Ethel Cro s Partridge, developed
from a slight wisp of a college girl, who was endowed with a magnetic personality, charm, and superior intelligence. Participation in organized club work such as: PEO, DAR, and 'VI omen 's Federated Clubs, has enhanced Ethel 's aesthetic knowledge of the cultural aspects of living. To form a well-balanced life, Ethel shares in her physician husband 's activities and sports. Last summer, after attending a surgical convention in Denver, Ethel and Doctor Partridge with the Fred Griffith fam ily spent a few days fishing in the Powderhorn River in Colorado. Now, as a versatile matron with vast practical experieces and wisdom , Ethel is serving her second year as our alumnre president. IN E Z BAY SMITH, Iota '31
JOHNSTOWN ALUMNJE Johnstown alumnre chapter is proud to present Mrs. John D. Jack, nee Kathryn Wagner, not only as our capable president and an outstanding member of our alumnre chapter, but also one who has proven herself very popular in the community, being active in many projects and organizations. Kathryn lives in Armaugh, Pennsylvania, where her husband is supervising principal of the Armaugh Joint Schools. She has an attractive and exceedingly alert six-year-old son, David. Besides serving as a substitute teacher in the grade school, Kathryn is a leader in a number of religious and civic activities, being president of the Women 's Society of Christian Service in the Methodist Church, as si sta:-~t superintendent of the Children's Department in the Sunday School , lieutenant for the township in the " Prevention of Cancer Drive," chairman of Organizing Home Nursing Classes in the township, with six active classes, and newly-elected corresponding secretary of the Women 's Society of Christian Service for the Blairsville District, covering seventy societies in that district. Reelected president of our chapter last May, Kathryn now worrie chiefly about gas rationing and whether it will affect her activity. We hope she will be able to find a way to get to Johnstown , meeting nights-be it via bicycle, bus, train, or even " piggy-back! " She'll doubtlessly be with us, for she's loyal, and there 's work to be done ! JosEPHINE PAu L, Z eta '2 7 PHILADELPHIA ALUMNJE Betty Cole Maisch, our president, is quite a model sorority girl. She's been very active in both her collegiate days as a member of Lambda, and during our existence as an alumnre chapter. Before her election to the presidency, she took able care of our finances. She is always ready with new ideas for promoting our spirit and furthering our interests in outside social service work. Be~ides all this, she is the busy mother of a " real " boy, Jack, aged five and still finds time to teach a class in Sunday School each week . We consider her a valuable member of our chapter !

DELTA CHAPTER The Delta chapter held its annual Founders' Day banquet at a local tea room and the scholarship award was given to Constance Ann Willis. This date correlated with the co llege hom eco ming and we were happy to have in our midst several of our chapter alumnre . In order that we T au ; at I.S .T.C. could feel that we had don e so mething to honor the boys in the services, we undertook the making of a huge service flag. This flag is approx imately five by eigh t feet in size and contains about one hundred and thirty three-inch stars. Our pre:ident, Ge rtrude Loser presented the fl ag at convocation on December 15, 1 9~2, to Doctor Uh ler, our college president. Each star took in the neighb or hood of an hour's labo r and we girls worked diligently in our spare time to finish th e task in our limited amount of time. The flag is no w hanging in the new auditorium where its full bea uty is displayed . Five of our girls are off campus this second seme:;ter doing their student teaching and two of our girls are in the Home Management Hou oe for half of the sem ~ s颅 ter. Six of our other girls are doing their student teachin g here on campus. So that leaves the remaining girls plenty to do to keep the rushing program m路ov ing along. Due to the accelerated program several of the freshmen came to o.ummer school last summ er in order to graduate a yea r early. The idea that they could pledge so rority a semester before the ord inary freshmen was brought up and received a majority vote in the Panhell enic meeting. We felt very elated because two of our most prom ising rushees ca me in this catego ry . All we can do is hope th at our final rushing turns out as well as the beginning.
We held our annual informal rush pa rty at the Indiana Hotel on January 9, 1 9~ 3 . The theme was the " Old Bowery Inn." Ou r in vitati ons were large ca rdboard aces of spades with a verse on the back whi ch was written by a pledge of ours, Becky Orange. The printing was done in red ink and the ca rds were hung by heavy red co rds and presented a most char ming a ppearance. Two of our yo unger girls took the invitations over the girls before breakfast. We had the hall decorated to resemble a high class " place" of th e late 1890's. In the middl e of the dance fl oo r" was a barrel fu ll of peanuts a nd on one end was an imitation bar from which the girls received th eir punch , potato alad,
wieners and buns. At the other end of the hall wa3 a chuck-o-luck wheel and the gi rls went from there to Mrs. G::~sslander to have their fortunes told. Three of the gi rls did a chorus number that was a huae success (as far as laughter was concer~ ed); Ginny R oberts and Eileen Kramer Lang did a " blue song" number and we had movies of Charlie Chaplin to finish the entertai nment. There was also dancing and singing. To top the afternoon off as favors we gave small wooden aces of spades. These were made in such a way that th e girls co uld wear them as lapel pins.

ZETA CHAPTER The seco nd nir. e weeks period saw a big cha nge in th e scholastic and social life of our college. Dr. P arso ns, our new president, introd uced the five day week by extending classes until five o'clock. Meetings have not been well attended and pa rti es hard to plan . Oaly Friday a nd Sat urday nights may be U'-ed for parties and th ese dates are usua ll y filled . Ho wever, we did have ou r Christm as party and a get-together on February 1 at the ho me of Mr: . Evelyn Long Sm ith , an alumna. Zeta's adviser. Dr. Edna Bottorf, was recently honored in having one of her paintings accepted and exhibited at th e Butler Art InstittJtion , Youngstown , Ohio. Jeannette Earon, who held the highest scholasti c standing last yea r in our chapter , was presented with a silver medal upon whi ch were cut th e Greek letters A. S. T . Lenore Tidlow and Mar:an McPhee were initiated as active in 8ecember. Two of ou r girls, Betty Thomp: on and H elena H a maker, are taking th e accelerated program and will grad uate in August , 1 9~ 3 , instead of June, 19~~-
THETA CHAPTER Engagements and weddings are qui ' e the thing out The ta way, as witness the two engagements and three marriages announced just recently. At Christmas time Helen Lamesfeld's engagement to T ommy Phillips was announced. L ois Kerr's engagement to Frank Moynes, of the niversity of Michigan , was also ann oun ced at th e sa me time. Barbara Bennett, our most recent expresident, went down to Florida during the holidays t o marry Lt. D n \'ernon
THE ANC HOR Booty of th e U. S. Army, grad uate of DePauw U niv ersity . Corrine Pherson chose D ece mber 31 as the date for her marriage to Bill Benton . She was married here in Detroit at the First Presbyterian Ch urch with Elsey Maye as her attendant. Th P. rest of the Thetas showed up at th e event t o be sure that Cork y was properl y "rice-besprinkled" when she started out on her honeymoon . The third and most recent marriage was that of another ex-president , Irene Ma rtin . The marriage, like Barbara 's, also took place in Florida, where the brid gegro om, Lt. Dallas Petty of the U. S. Army, grad uate of Wayne University, is stati oned. Irene will rem ain in Florida until Dallas receives his "overseas orders." Before we leave matters military , here's a note on what some of our girls did during Christmas vacation . The Army Show was playing in Detroit a t that time , so quite a few of our girls wo rked as volunteer program-sellers. It was fun and we sa w the show as many times as we wanted , wh ich was nearly every time because it rea ll y was th at good. We met most of tl)e celebrities, including Ezra Stone and Irving Berlin , and so me of th e girls eve n entertained members of the cast at their h omes. Beside; doing oth er such volun teer wo rk , Thetas are still helping with th e mailing of Collegians and Panoramas t o Wayne boys in the services. At Christmas time we also sent greeting cards and n otes. The than k yo u letters we received more tha n made up for a ny extra effo rt exerted. At the presen t t ime we've just fin ished holding a driv e fo r salvage nylon and silk hose. Our scho ol has been coopera ting very closely with defen se orga nizations and we thought we, too , should be a part of the movement, so we s ponso red the hose drive. With the aid of th e school paper and th e cooperation of the other so rorities, the affair turned out very successfull y . J anuary was o-raduation tim e here at Wayne and we a re now minus Co rky Pherson Benton , Ma rguerite Bernard , E unice Little, and Jud y Ca mpbell . Sofee Adanowicz and Aulga Maye also received their Bachelor degrees but are staying on to get their M asters. Marguerite, too , pla ns t o continue taking graduate wo rk besides doing her teachin g. Formal initiation was held on February 1-l at the home of Dr. Gertha Williams, one of our sponso rs. The new members are Viola Severso n, Bette An n Utley, and Sybil Houk.
Ri!!;hl now ~~ c're in the midst of m:tk ing plans for rushing. If the enth usiasm and ideas di splayed now are indicative of fina l results, look for a long, long list of Theta pledge . We' ll need them, too , because of a ll the plans we've made for Apri l and May. Some of the more important events are: a Mo th ers' Day lea ; a sprin g bridge party, a shower for the apartment, and an open house celebrating the 20th Anniversa ry of the foundin g of Theta chapter. The acti ve Theta girls t his semester are: Sofee Adanowi cz, Caroline Clay ton, Viva Cossey, Jean Fraser, Kay Graham, Norma H aase, Sybil Houk, Irene K aske, Lois Kerr, Helen Lamesfeld, Aulga Maye, Elsey Maye, Betty M urphy, Viola Severson, Julie Starcevic h, Vickie Sulatyck i, and Bette Ann Utley.

IOTA CHAPTER Our Founders' D ay dinner was especially lovely this year. The dinner was given in the Iota chapter house and wa s ca rried out in the traditional emerald and go ld color sche me. After t he dinner, Lou ise Huxman , an active member of Alpha Sigma Tau, entertained with two vocal solos. Then three members of Al pha Sigma T au spoke on what Alpha Sigma Tau meant to them as an a lumna, an active, and a pledge. The speakers we re, respective ly, Mrs. Franklin Ace, Virginia Za jic, and Charlene Nichols . After the program the ever impressive candl e lighting service was held . The girls of Alpha Sigma Tau and their guests became gay "senors" and "senoritas" for one evening at the pledge pa rty, given on November 21. The party, held in the St udent U ni on Ball Room, was in Span ish theme , with colorful go urds, gay blankets, and pottery adding to the pict ure. During the evening, a Conga li ne, in which everyone participated, contributed greatl y to the true Latin spirit. Favors of crysta l ash trays were given to the "senors."
An in formal Christmas pa rty was given in the Iota chapter house, on December 18. During the evening the girls and their guests danced and played cards. Refreshments of sa ndwi ches and coffee were served . Just before the guests departed all the lights but the Christma tree lights were dimmed and we sa ng Christmas ca rols. On December 21, we held a fo rmal dinn er, fo llowed by a gift exchange. Gift
were piled high beneath the Christmas tree; and the girls really enjoyed opening the gaily beribboned packages. Our gift to the Iota chapter house this year was a record cabinet for our large collection of records. "Hell Week" started at twelve o'clock, F riday night, Jan uary 22, and continued unti l the following Saturday afternoon. The pledges entertained us, Friday night, with a very entertaining and amusing program, and, also, sang their p!edge songs to us. Saturday morning everyone pitched it and helped to give our hou;e a thorough cleaning. Then, that noon. the pledge had their usual " Hell Week'' luncheon in which they attempted to eat their mush and chocolate pie with the aid of kitchen utensils, such as potato mashers, tea strainers, and egg beaters. After the pledges had their paddles signed by the actives, " Hell Week" was declared to be over. Tha t evening, t he actives gave a dinner in honor of the pledges. Second semester Rush Week activities started, Monday, January 25. Open house was held Monday and Tuesday afternoons from seven unt il ten. Rushees were entertained at a party, Tuesday evening. Since the Panhellenic Council had wished for the sororities to red uce expenses, no refreshments, except punch, were served, and the hou"e was not deco rated. Nevertheless, everyone enjoyed himself dancing and playi no- cards. The traditional "Yellow Rose" preferential dinner was given Wed nesday evening. T hursday evening fo llowing Rush vVeek , the following girls were initiated into pledgeship and were guests at a dinner given in their honor : Mildred Nelson, Emporia; Nell Brown, Neal; Augusta Dickson, Adm ire; and Vivian Lee Barge r, Brewster. Charlene ichols was repledged . MARY CAROLYN WEIR , '.J5
LAMBDA CHAPTER We have not had any social activities during the past six weeks due to the acceleration in our school program and the little time we have had for social activities. Saturday, February 6 is the date of our Panhellenic Tea and the start of rushing seaso n. Tuesday night, February 9, we have our first rush party which is goinoto be a bowling party near campus. Later in February we are going to have a theater party for our second rush party. For the Pa nhellenic Tea we are Programme chairmen and have planned an excellent musicale.
Two of our members are graduating on February 15 including our president, Eleanor Heydrick and Mary Uttley. Doris Kaufmann is our new president. Mrs. Ruth Fabeck Knapp is a new bride in our sorority. She married an Army lieutenant early in the fa ll. PATRICIA CAVANAGH
OMICRON CHAPTER Rushing season went over with a bang! The Omicron chapter had its ribbon pledging ovember 15, 19-12 at the home of Mrs. Ralph Klingen mith. After the pledging of twenty-two girls, lovely refreshments were se rved by Mrs. Klingensmith to the actives, several patronesses, alumnre, the adviser, and the pledges. The Panhellenic dance wa o-iven in the college gy mnasium that evening. The gy m was decorated very simply but impressively with evergreens. The music for the dance was furni shed by the Concord Commanders . .The new pledges were given attractive wrist corsages of yellow 11owers tied with the sorority colors, as they entered the hall. Mrs. Smith Bradley entertained the actives, pledges, patrone3ses, and the adviser, of the Omicron chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau sorority, with a lovely social , November 19, 19-12, at her drug store. She was assi~ted by her daughter Mrs. Robert Gathrum, the former Helen Bradley, who is an alumna. Pin pledging was held November 23, 19-12 in the Social Room. Twenty girls were pledged. A few days later a special pin pledging was held at the weekly meeting of the Omicron chapter on December 2, 19-12 for Lucy Gattuso. Josephine Ryan, last year's prep, had her formal initiation at the same meeting. The annual Christmas party was held in the Rock Reation of the Girls' Hall, December 16. The pledges gave a very interesting and unu ual program for those present. Genevieve Harvey, a prep, presented the words of a new prep song to the tune of " Serenade In Blue.'' Gifts were exchanged, and the sorority gave a lovely box of talcum powder to each of the patronesse and the adviser, Mrs. Mae Hunter Carrol. Mrs. Donzie Lilly, Mrs. John McGraw, patronesses, and Miss Phylli Lilly alumna , were present. Prepping season come to a triumphal close with Hell Week from February 1 to 7, inclusive. The girls who ha,•e prepped, o faithfully , for the acti\·e of the micron chapter are: Katheryn Blant on.
THE ANCHOR Juanita Bruce, Ann Eaton, Lucy Gattuso, Mary Lee Harman , Ruth Ellen Harper, Genevieve Harvey, Janet Koch , Ilene Lilly, Doris Lee Meadows, Lois Perry, Eloise Prillerman, Christine Shumate, Anita Smith, Nancy Ann Staley, Billie Marie Tanner, Jean Yoak, and Peggy Yoak. The Omicron chapter has nearly lOOo/o of the girls pledged for at least one hour a week for cutting bandages for Red Cross work. OMICRON's WHo's WHo J O!'ephine Ryan was elected the National Defense Chairman at the January 13, 19+3 meeting. Eileen Godsey, trea: urer of the so rority, and Thelma Wilson, vice-president, were chosen to be in the Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges. Betty Funk, past president of the Omicron chap~er of Alpha Sigma Tau corority, was elected as the new president of the Chamber of Commerce of Concord College. Mary Ruth Montgomery, a member of the sorority, was elected vice-president of the Club. Eileen Godsey, treasurer of Omicron chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau sorority and president of the Woman 's Athletic Association, and Aileen Peery, intram ural manager of the sorority and secreta ry of the W.A.A., were awarded college letters for W.A.A. participation in intramurals.

PI CHAPTER Pi chapter certainly isn't the same these days ! The reason? We are losing seven grand girls through a mid-year graduation. Since several of the boys in the class have been called to the armed forces, it was decided to have grad uation at this time. We think the alums are lucky in getting such a fine group of girls who have been so faithful to their sorority. To these girls, Margaret Brune, Jane Edmonds, Kathleen Foster, Helen Gummersheimer, Evelyn Luecking, Marcella Tubbesing, and Ruth Ziegenmeyer, we wish much success and happiness for the future. Carolyn Conner, Pi president, gave a party in honor of the graduates on Wednesday evening, J anuary 27. " Graduation" was the theme of the party, and the favors were little white graduation caps filled with candy. Since the last issue of THE ANCHOR, we have gotten four new pledges: lisa Blankenmeister, Betty Lou Howald, Flor-
ence Knake , and Helen Round; . We are really proud of these girls. Founders' Day was again observed this year- this time in the beautiful Blue Room of the Forest Park Hotel. The room was filled to capacity, since a great num ber of alumnre attended , in addition to practically every active and pledge. Thanksgiving was celebrated with a Harvest Party , given for the pledges by the actives at Marie Wolfslau's home. Decorations were real co rn sho cks, and refre:;hments consisted of apple cider, doughnuts, and chewy pop-corn balls. Christmas, also , did not go unobserved in the way of parties. One of those lookedforward -to Pot Luck Suppers was held at Margaret Bongner's home. If anyone did not get enough to eat, it certainly was not due to the fact that there wasn't enough to eat! The followin g morning the alums and actives got together again for a "brun ch'' at the beautiful Rose Bowl. Carolyn Conner and Ruth Ziegenmeyer were two out of six girls and six boys elected to represen t Harris in Who's Who in A m er:can Colleges and Univ ersities. We thing this is a very go od showing for Alpha Sigma Tau. JEANNETTE ULRI CH, '.J3
SIGMA CHAPTER Christmas for Sigmas meant that our dream of a sorority room was at last fulfilled. Our Christmas party turned out to be a shower for the room , each active, pledge, and adviser playing Santa Claus. One of Santa's helpers whispered that our color scheme was to be based on emerald, and soon we were seeing green: guest towels, kitchen utensils and even a green broom! In the midst of our gaiety, however, everything went black as the sirens announced a practice blackout. othing daunted, we told moron jokes and illust rated a "round robin " story in the dark. Try it sometime if you think it's easy. Our re:;ults were really startling. Our holiday was complete as we welcomed the followin g girls as pledges in a ceremony during the Christmas party: Betty Binder, Antoinette Cia cone, Janet Green, Betty Knepshield, Dorothy Wierzwa, Irene Moelich, Gertrude Mullen , Marjorie Paintner, Helen Webber, and Irene Zielinski. Each of our pledges has been "adopted" by two actives, her big sisters, one a junior and one a senior. Our last meeting before we moved into our sorority room was a supper meeting given by Beverly Bollard at Tuyn 's Res-
THE A NC HOR
taurant. Then , with our so rority banner occupying a prominent place on our new wall , we began knitting feverishl y for the Red Cross. Amid clicking needles we planned our booth for th e Y.W.C.A. Carnival and our annual dance to be held in April. With exams behind u; and a full program ahead , Sigma enters enthusiasticall y into a new a nd promising school year. J EAN P ERNER , '-1-1
UPSILON CHAPTER The fall semester of 19-13 has certa inl y been an exciting one for the Up3ilon chapter here at the Ark ansas State T eachers College. Al ong with most of the othe r state schools, our college determin ed to put forth all-out for wa r effort when school opened in September. Alpha Sigma T au opened its seaso n with a transfer rush party at the home of its sponsor, Dr. Ada Jan e Harvey. We pledged fiv e girls : illadine Collins, J o Vest al, Laura Frances Vi ck, Ray lene Min ter, and Mary Sue Walsh. Then a few weeks la ter we entertained our freshma n rushees with a barn party at the college farm. The party was a huge success ; we all wore old clothes (jeans, plaid shirts, overalls, straw hats) and frolicked in the hay loft of a huge barn . We danced squ are dances and played ru;tic ga me: , aft er which we served hot t amales, potat o chip3, pickles, doughnuts, and hot coffee. We u:.ed wagons full of hay for our transportation . To evidence its succe3s, the party netted us twelve of the cutest frosh pledges ever : Mary Baker, Erleen Beasley, Charlotte Barker, Sissy Cash, Sue Stalcup, Louise Gall egly, Fruanna Fraser, Gwenda Dean Tucker, Nonalee Gibson , Aileen Rodgers, Helen Gay Marsh and Mary Toland . Because of transportati on difficulties, the Alpha Taus had two dances the past semester, instead of th eir usual picni c and dance . On October 23, we had our first dance. There was no decorating, because all the :.ororities on the ca mpus have agreed to forego th at expense. "The Tophatters," ASTC orche:.tra, played; a nd we had a grand time. Our next dance was D ecember 12, and our pledges went. The college has abo ut a hundred na val air cadets sta ti oned here, and lots of them ca me. Soon aft er th e dan ce, the pledges gave a tea for the pledges of th e other so rorities on the campus. They decorated the r oo m in the Christmas motif and prepared th e most delicious food and Russian t ea . M em-
bers were not all owed to help with the preparati ons or t o attend the tea. We lost three of our most-loved members by gradu ati on in J anuary. Liz Ann H olmes, who was our president for the first semester of this year ; Ruth Hawkins, one of our olde t members and best workers; M a r~ i e Pipkin. wh o was rush captain for this yea r. Just after we returned t o school from the Christ mas holidays, we ent ertained for th em with a farewell din ner in the pri va te dining roo m of the Batchelor H otel. Each was pre ented with a gift. Liz Ann is now in Thornton , her home, just loafin g a little before she reall y sta rts t o wo rk . M argie has a grand job with th e gove rnm en t at the Airport in New port ; and Ruth is the lu ckiest of a ll for she is being married F ebruary i t o J oe Paulk, a Sigma T au Ga mm a. A bomb hell was dropped in our midst the other day by the admini tra ti on, wh o informed us that 500 WAA Cs are being stati oned on our ca mpus, and that it would be necessa ry for us to give up our sorority roo ms in order th at they be housed . H owever, our sponso r tells us that plans are bei ng made for us t o meet elsew here. Second se:ne3ter rushing has begun , info rmally. No actual plans have been made, but we have our eyes on so me pretty good material. T here a re more new stud ents th an usual, beca use an Arka nsa law has been made that high school ~ tudent s, on entering the twelfth grade, may pass a special examin ation and sta rt in co llege. The Upsil on chap ter is loo!d ng forward t o a ve ry successful ' Pring semester, and se nds greetings t o all its si: ters! M ARIE A T W ATER
ZETA TAU CHAPTER Smooth sailing ah ead ! That's the way we Zeta T aus fe el now sin ce rushing is o\路er. At the end of th e wee k of Februa ry 1, we had pledged eleven attractive girlsnine fr eshmen, one sopho more, and one junior. They a re Jane D anby, Anna Lee Blanton , Ca roline Bobbitt , Leah Anne J ordan, Jea n Woodard , Elizabeth Me- 路 Lea n, Ma ry Virginia Eva ns, Mildred Droste, Lu cille J ones, Cleo Frick , a nd Ruth Garriso n. 路 After ri bbon pledgino on the last night of rushin g, the actives entertai ned for the new girls. F or fun , the pledges entertained us with some of their various talents and we in turn served them plenty of "ood ea ts and favo r- . We celeb rated Christma with a big Ch ristm as pa rty before the holidays. mall
THE ANC HOR and hilari ous gifts were given to eac h other and a fter wa rds these were co ntributed to th e Social Service Bureau here in Farmville. On Sunday, J a nu a ry H, t he chapter entertained the members' dates at tea. We' re hav ing lots of fun in the chapter these days w ith simple forms of entertainment such as "coke and nab parties," afternoon walks, informal "bull a nd jam sessions" in the chapter room, and taking pict ures on Sunday aftern oo ns for ou r picture album.

PHI CHAPTER Another semester has sta rt ed dow n here in the alleged ly su nn y So uth , and a ll of us ha ve weathered m id-term exams favorably. We have a ll reso lved, however , to do better so that ou r grades in May will be exce ll ent rat her than good or fa ir. We had our Christmas party on December 15 before we left for the holida ys on D ecember 18. The Social Room at the co ll ege wa decorated in the appropriate manner wi th pine boughs and holl y. A la rge Christmas tree with colored lights and tinsel stood in one corner and all of the dime-store pre; ents we bou ght for each other and our dates were stacked underneath it. Th e party was a come-asyo u-a re affair, a nd the costumes ranged from H elen Sa!Osone's black crepe dinner dress (with brown moccasins as footgear) to Iso bel's Mi zell 's turn ed- up flanne lette pajamas. Th ere were gym su:ts, night gowns, slacks, shorts, and ~treet clothes on display . The boys' clothes va ried jmt as much , because they too had to co me dressed as they we re when they received their invitations . Aside from a couple of minor tri bulations like the dance programs, !_ietting mixed up an d the refreshments' bein g locked u p and the k ey misplaced , the party was high ly successful. One of our alumnre members, lv yll e Primes, was ma rri ed on Christmas Eve to Lt. Adrian Blomquist. lvy ll e is still at Southeastern in the capacity of secretary to the Dean of the Co ll ege of Education whi le her husba nd is on duty. On February 11, the Red Cross unit at sch ool is going to have its an nual Stu nt Night. Joyce Capron was appointed c h a ir~ man of the com mittee to prepare Phi chapter's act for that night. Each orga nization on the campus has been asked to do so mething, just as it was last yea r , a nd if Alpha Sigma Tau lives up to th e reputation it established, it will have one of th e
cleverest acts on the program. We'll let yo u know. ext Mo nday, Februa ry 1, we plan to initiate four of our pledges from last year : Helen Sassone, Agnes Thomp3on, Yvonne Thomas, a nd Joyce Capron. Our pledges of September wi ll be initiated later. On January 12, Mrs. G. W. Bond and M rs. John T. Purser, our ponsors, gave a bu ffet lun cheo n for our chapter at Mrs. Bond's home. In add iti on to the Alpha Sig g irls, the gue ts included Miss Margaret Lowe and Miss Margaret Wa ld rep, our facu lty spo nsors, and Miss Pea rl Himler, Dean of Women at Southeastern . It was a lovel y party which we a ll enjoyed very much. One of Phi chapter's girls, Yvonne Thomas. was recen tly elected president of the Girls' Dormitory. This is qu ite an honor for the position is a respo nsible one. Congratu lations are in order for Yvonne. At present, plans are being made for a Va lentine party to be given so metime early in Fe!:J ruary. The committee is working on secret plans w hi ch th ey say are "knock-out." I hope that is not to be taken literally. We' ll let yo u know what happens. As I p rom ised in my last letter , I am encl osing a co u p~e of picture; of Betty Watkins as she appea red as Homecoming Queen at So utheastern. Betty is reall y prettier than either of the pictures show her to be, but you can get an idea anyway if they can be used in THE A ' CHOR . Incidentally, Betty has received an appo in tment fr om Curtiss-W right t o become one of their "Cadettes'' in aeronautical engineering. She will probably leave next week to go to one of the big engin eering schools for a ten-mo nt h "streamEned'' cour~e of study and then go to wo rk for Curtiss- Wright. We are beginnin g to miss her a lready, and naturall y, we a ll wish her the best of lu ck and probably sec retly envy her the chance she has. With best w ishes to you all from all of us, I remain as ever . VlRClNlA H . B URCK
CHI CHAPTER The Alpha Sig girls at Shepherd State Teachers Co llege were ve ry outstanding and much noticed one day before the Christmas holidays as all of us turned out in wh ite cardigan jackets w ith the sorority emblem a nd lettering in green on the back . We lik e them very much and think it is a good id ea. The chapter presented the adviser, Mis
Cree, with a gold identification bracelet at Christmas time. She played Santa Claus to us as usual and presented the chapter with Emily Post's latest Blue Book of E :iquette. At one of our meetings Dr. Scarborough, a patroness, gave an interesting review of outstanding books. This was in line with the programs outlined for the :year and did much to stimulate our readmg. Our eight pledges we re given the examination and came through with excellent grades. They were initiated a few weeks ago. An informal banquet was held in their honor at Crawford House in Shepherdstown. We had the candle lighting service, toasts, flowers and place cards in sorority colors, and a delicious chicken dinner. Dr. W. H. S. White, pre;ident of the college, spoke after the dinner. His
topic was " Fraternal Organizations in Wartime." He answered the question, ''Should fraternal organizations continue in time of war?" in the affirmative. A special tribute was paid our retiring president , Jean Millard, by Miss Cree. Jean has been graduated and we are losing a grand leader, but we wish her all the luck in the world. Catherine Butts, vice-president , will take over the duties of president and we know she will do a good job of it. Catherine is a senior and one of our members who made Who's Who. We have had our scholarship cup en!!raved and Janet Wilson has received the scholarship ring. The first semester has come to a close and the girls were certainl y "digging in" as we are in hopes of receiving the scholarship cup a third year and so " for keep3" ! JANET WILSON
ODDS AND ENDS
Alpha Sigs Organize to Hunt for Nylons By
It's about time somebody told Ripley that Wayne is go ing to have a drive, but this time the step; will probably be taken by stocking-less legs, for today an arm y of pat riotic coeds, commanded by captains from Alpha Sigma T au so rority , will start a march across the battlefield of Wayne's silk-nylon reso urces. Anyone who was around Wayne before Pearl Harbor knows that a silk stoc king is th at article of appa rel which has ca used more Wayne women to enter complai nts at the building and gro unds office than any other single factor. And every such case was fou ght because a little snag came between, not st ud ent and instructor, but chair and student. Nylon stockings have been defined as " wear-'em , compare-'em, but above all don't tear- 'em" objects . For those who have disobeyed this last commandment, the Alpha Sigs offer two alternatives: (l ) go domestic and make a bold att empt to repair the damage or (2) bring the precious pre-drive relic to the second floor , where it wi ll be placed in the show case as a future co ntributi on to the J ap "scrap"-book. If a lady takes the latter course, he is still entitled to her new stocking or
rayon hose, which are two of the few items that Army and Navy officials aren't welcoming. It seems that rayon doesn't have the essential fit , when it comes to making gunpowd er bags. Silk alone gives the necessary dash to war materials. With their eyes ankle-anuled, Alpha Sigma Tau members emphasize that Wayne women are not asked to separate their own size 9's fr om Aunt Susabelle's size 11-plus hose. 1 either is it necessary to make any classification on the basis of quality or condition. Should an individual's accumu lation of stockings be too heavy to carry, Alpha Sig will provide adeq uate transportation facilities. It seems as though the stocking drive should appeal to the sporting interests of those coeds prepa ring for next semester's health program. And as for collection enthusiasts- picture a " well-run" nylon fi lled with ammunit ion made from the fat left-over from your breakfast bacon-andegg . When Alpha Sig members are asked, " Can it be done? ' they reply, "You bet your rubber boots, old compacts, and Ia t pair of silks, it can ." Their challenge is: " Why let your 'dead' tockings rot in the dark? Give them air and let them haunt the J aps."-From Th e Coll egian, "\ ayne University Detroit, Michigan.
•ALUMNAE CHAPTERS· BLUEFIELD ALUMNJE
November Meeting The Bluefield a lumnre of Alpha Sigma Tau met at the home of Henrietta Mahood, November 1-t. Gladys Udy and Dorothea Lindsey assisted in the hospitalities. · A warring nation affects the activities of a group, and our alumnre are interested in doing their part in war work. At this meeting, the Bluefield alumn re decided that each member should go to the local Red Cross rooms and assist in work that she is best qualified to do. From a special fund, which our alumnre had set aside, the Bluefield group voted to purchase three defense bonds.
The activities of the Cleveland a lumn re chapter have been limited this winter. Since meetings have been held at a downtown restaurant the transaction of our usual business has been difficult. Arran gements have been made with a hotel and a private room will be avai lab le in the future. This will be more satisfactory. All of ou r girls seem to be busy with various types of war work. The gir ls not active ly engaged in defense wo rk find their home duties increased because of the extra work carried on by other members of the fami ly. Evelyn Lunham was ill for several weeks in January, but is better now. Ruth Merrick has been working evenin gs at Winton Diesel Company, one of Cleveland's busy defeme plan ts, in add iti on to her day work at the State Employment Agency. Edith Siple entertained the group at her home with a dinner. Boy fri ends and husbands we re invited. The party, like every one Edith gives, was a huge success. Catherine Bozarth spent the last two weeks of J anuary at her home in Tunda, New York. Her brother was home on furlough. Jan e Buck , our former president and member of the WAAC, has been promoted to battalion executive officer. She is working on rules and regulations to govern the compa nies to promote unity in organization. We miss Jane but are glad she find > her work so interestin g and satisfyin g. CATHERINE BozARTH, Sigma '33
December Meeting A cheerful spirit prevailed when the alumnre assembled at Bula McNeill's home for the annual Christmas party on December 12. During the aftern oon three tables of bridge were in play. In keeping with th e yuletide seaso n, each member exchanged an attractive wrapped gift. The hostesses, Elizabeth Bowling and Bula McNeill, served a delectable Christmas party plate. In carrying out our charity work for December, the alumnre sent candy, tobacco , and magazines to the Mercer County Home. A contribution was given to the Bluefield Community Christmas Tree fund. January Meeting January 9, 19-t3, f_ound our alumnre meeting at the home of Rebecca Perry in Athens. Because of restrictions placed on pleasure drivin g, only seven members were present at this meeting. Virginia Charlton presented, in a humorous way, excerpts from An Omnibus of Modern American Humor . The arti cles given were: "Archy, the Cockroach" by Don Marquis, "The Roma nce of Digestion' ' by Robert Benchley, and "I'm in a Hurry" by William Hazlett Upso n. Due to transpo rtation problems, it may be necessary in the future for the Bluefield alumnre to meet in three groupsAthens. Princeton ,and Bluefield. HENRIETTA MAHOOD, Omicron '39
EMPORIA ALUMNJE The December meeting of the alumnre club was held at the home of Miss Mary Alice Seller. The members and guests worked on Juni or Red Cross patterns to aid the Roosevelt High School Girl Reserv es, who are sponsored by Miss Seller. Later, the guests played bridge and were served refreshments. Ethel Patridge was hostes to the alumnre club members in January. R ed Cross work occupied a part of the evening.

JOHNSTOWN ALUMNJE The "White Christmas" of which we dreamed, but didn't have, has passed, and we J ohnstown alumn re remember as one of the bright spots of the Christmas season our soro rity meeting held at "The Green Kettle" the second week of December. J ane Snow and Edith Paul were co-hostesses. We had a delicious turkey dinner, a short business meeting after dinner, and then a round of Christmas ga mes and gift surprises. We thought the party a cheerful beginning for the holiday seaso n. We were happy to hav e with us that even ing a former member, Helen Lear Geer. Our first meeting of the New Year was at Edith Furst 's home in January. After the business session , Dottie Risch read very beautifully excerpts from "The White Cli ffs of Dover." Then came a F o toria shower for Gladys M omberger Egolf. (Weddin g bells rang for Gladys Christmas week .) Edith served us uch a lovely
"bridal'' lunch- dainty sandwi che:;, ice cream, " 'bridesmaids' corsage' cakes,'' and -believe it or not-Coffee-all we could drink . Edith related postponing the meetin!! from the second to the third week purposefully-to "save up" more coffee! Congratulations to all the girls who are play ing a part in Defense Activities. May all T aus' energy be gladl y and gratefully used to help get the boys back home. Due to gas rationing we in J ohnstown have decided to dispense with our evening meetings and instead meet at noon the second Saturday of each month , have luncheo n at one of our hotels, and hold a short business meeting in the afternoon. It is impossible for severa l of our girls to attend evening meetings si nce they mu. t travel by train, and we are hoping the Saturday plan will " keep us together." " I like to spend this hour with yo u, As sister to sister I'm so rry it's through ; Let's make a date for next- ANCHOR Issue." J o P AUL, Z eta '27
PHILADELPHIA ALUMNJE Our F ounders' Day banquet was eve:1 more of a success this year than before due to th e splendid turn -o ut. We had the pleasure of meetin g the collegiate chapter's charming new adviser, Dr. Farenkopf. Mrs. Kirby, the retired adviser, also was our guest. Two pledges were among those present , and we hope that by the time t he next banquet rolls around the actives will have many more members and pledges in their group. December alco brought an excellent turn-out at our Christmas pa rty which was in the form of a luncheon in Gimbels Department Store. It seems that when our meetings are held in the center of town , we always have more attending them . Five of our members acted as hostesses this time: Betty Ma isch, Becky Rooks , Jackie P ostpichal, Dot Fahy, and Mildred Day. We exchanged 25 cent gifts and all enjoyed themselves immensely. The J anuary meeting was also a luncheon, but a " Dutch treat' ' at Gimbels again, and many were out to enjoy it. We collected our birthda y money for the yea rone cent for eac h year; also gave the actives money to aid in their rushing. H ope yo u will pardon th e brevity of this report, but my 2 ~ -da -old daughter, Barbara J ea n, refuses to let her mother co ncentrat e too long on an thing but herself at the present time . 1 tru t th at by th e time the next acco unt is due, she will

ST. LOUIS ALUMNIE Our knitting unit will receive a n award from the R ed Cross for the quantity of garments finished. The girls had not realized they were doing a n unu sual amount of work un til the notice was received from Red Cross Headquarters. Need less to say everyone was thrilled . We entertained the Collegiate chapter and the pledges at a brunch on December 29 at the R ose Bowl a nd on December 30 we h~d a party fo r ourselves in Virginia Beare s rathskellar. Each of us brought our own refreshments-a tablespoo n of coffee, or a tea bag-cookie or whatever we wished. The food that was served was quite assorted: chili and spaghetti, a n eighth of a sandwich apiece, potato chips, coffee, t ea, cream lemon cake, and cookies. The bulk of the evening was spent in playi ng bridge accordi ng to a set of exceedingly original rules drawn up by Ali ce \lit.
No social events have been planned for the near futu re as a dues paying campaign is getting under way. LILLIAN VocT
WELCH ALUMNIE Our a nnual Ch ristmas party was held at the home of Virginia Hutchinso n on December 18. This affair has t ruly become one th at members make an effo rt to attend. The exchanging of gifts and a very gaily decorated tree gave us that nice Ch ristmas feelin g. Perhaps the most act ive person in attendance was little Jimmie, eight-months-
old so n of Virgin ia, who made hi s cont ribution by entertaining in his own special way. We must al so mention the more serious sid e of our social meeting. We had install at ion of new officers, a nd Muriel Hurt was initiated as a member. On J anuary 22, we met at the hom e of Clara Perald o. Lena Caporossi presided during the meeting in the a bsence of Virginia Hutchinso n, who had been called away by the seri ous illness in her hu3band's famil y. We discussed the many efforts made by girls in our chapter to aid in war work. The prob lem of tra nspo rtation kept some of our members from attending. However, we're sure they will work on some methed whereby they may continue their good attendance. Our February meet ing is to be held in the home of Lenore Seligman , at Northfork. H ELEN DECKER, Omicron
WILLIAMSPORT ALUMNIE We met at one of our newer tea rooms fo r our Founders' Day D inn er. The candleli ght se rvi ce was very impressive. Jean Dykens and Lou:se Selleck were admitted to the group. Our Christmas party was held at the home of Helen Louise Thomas. Helen 's clever decorati ons instilled in us a true Christmas spirit even though Christmas was several week saway.
