Your friend is your needs answered. He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgivi ng. And he is your board and your fireside. For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him fo r peace. When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the " nay" in your own mmcl , nor do you withhold the " ay." And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart ; For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that i unacclaimed. When you part from your friend, you grieve not ; For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain. And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spiri t. For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught. And let your best be for your friend. If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its fl ood also . For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill? Seek him always with hours to live. For it is his to fill your need , but not your emptiness. And in the sweetness of friendship Jet there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of littl e things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

THE ANCHOR OF ALPHA SIGMA TAU An Alpha Sigma Tau in Germany This is a letter from Helen Roberts Call, Eta, to Helen Wick, Eta

Giessen, Germany D EAR H ELE '

I have been in Germany since Nov. 25, 1946 at which time I joined my husband, who is stationed at the 388th Station Hospital. We are fortunate enough to have our car with us so we're able to drive to most any part of Germany within a few hours. The small villages were not damaged and they really do look like color plate from Grimm's Fairy Tales. Their streets are very narrow and winding. Driving through them, the houses on either side of the road seem to bend over and almost touch each other. Most of the people wear peasant dress, sweep the sidewalks with home made brooms which have short handles and long straws, much like our fireside brooms. The barns, horses, pigs, cows, chickens and geese are kept in the courtyard which adjoins the house. In other words the farmers live in the village (with their animals) and cultivate the soil near the vill age. T he feudal system still exists in Germany. The people are very class conscious. In a nearby village I know of a man who hasn't HELEN ROBERTS CALL poken to his father fo r ten years because his father is a woodsman while the son is only a beater (for the huntsman ) so he is too far beneath his father to be permitted to speak to him. Giessen, a university center, was eighty two per cent destroyed . As I look out the window, I can see nothing but rubble in two directions. The citizens of Giessen though, look quite well nourished and most of them have very good clothes. When they go walking on Sunday, they look like a prosperous people. The children living on our street have very nice warm snow-suits made from army blankets. Many of them wear these for every day and on Sundays the little girls wear white fur coats with hood and muffs to match. The people in the larger cities, Frankfort, Berlin and Ca sal, do look hungry.

THE ANCHOR

Every German carries a brief case which usually holds some goods he hopes to barter for cigarettes. The German philosophy is obedience without question. On the whole they 're quite honest hardworking people. But in the three months I've been here, and observed them I believe them to be self-centered, selfish, uncooperative and hard. They won 't share with each other and love to tattle. For example, our neighbors are on a tour of Switzerland and left the nursemaid in charge. She's very capable and takes excellent care of their baby. But the nursemaid being in charge saw to it that the cleaning maid did a good day's work then refused her any dinner. So the poor woman went home after a hard day's work without any evening meal. Our eighteen year old maid will try her best to make Herr Michel, the janitor, miserablebut never fear, he retaliates. You watch the little children playing- so rosy cheeked, merry and you wonder what makes them become the kind of adult we ee about us. In the family household , " Papa is all. " You visit the German school and teacher wants you to see how they are teaching democracy. At a sharp command all children stand , another bark and they 're seated, another and they fold their hands. Perhaps in time Germany will learn- but so far I've met none of them who feel any guilt for the destruction they have wrought in the worldthey look at you and say, " Before the war all was good but now all Germans are poor. " And you feel that they 're thinking, " orne day we'll get even." The majority of American women are aghast at how hard the German women work. I think they must try to take out their revenge and frustration on the floors and scrubbing brushes. If they had won the war and moved into the states for occupation- American women would be on their hands and knees from dawn till dark. I have yet to find one of them who puts himself in the other person's place and acts accordingly. I wonder if any other Alpha Sigma Tau girls are in the E.T.? Sincerely yours, HELE

Pine Mountain Settlement School, Inc. Pine Mountain. Harlan County. Kentucky H. R. S. BENJAMIN Director D EAR FRIENDS:

This morning as I walked through the kitchen I noticed Ola Mae, one of our seniors at work. I asked her what she was responsible for during the work period, and she replied with pride, "I make the whole wheat bread. " These fragrant loaves, which 8.re a traditional part of Pine Mountain supper, are a great favo rite with the whole school. If the supply runs out, one hears the injured cry, "What! No more bread!" Visitors, too, delighted by its quality, often take home the recipe. At Pine Mountain , from the earliest days of the school, work hr,s been an essential part of learning. Let me quote from a letter written by Miss Ethel deLong in November, 1914 ! " Pioneers must handle axes and plows vigorously and long before they can pause to wield the pen. We seem to have taken a long time for this. While the school is a-building Miss Pettit and our farmer have accomplished titanic tasks on the farm. You would really believe that this is an industrial school if you could see what our children are learning as they help in these tasks. Although we are pioneers we have tried to keep in mind not only the present needs but a future ideal. " Today we remember these words as we continue to build fo r the future, watching Ola Mae in the kitchen, and George in the workshop. George is a new boy- one of 28 chosen from 172 applicants last fal l. Through generous neighbors I met this orphan boy last August and asked him if he would like to come to Pine Mountain. He replied eagerly, " I sure would and I got a notion to study if hit 's all the same to you !" " Can you make out this application and send it to me soon? " Quickly he answered, " I sure can !" He was a tall young chap with a lean face and eyes which sought friendship. George soon found a place for him self here for he is friendly and a great favorite with his fellows. Since last September he has grown taller and increased in weight and vigor. He has responded in a very heartening way to the daily leaven of Pine Mountain. Faithfully yours,

An Alpha Sigma Tau in South America A letter from Margaret Pollock Small, Alpha to Carrie Washburne Staehle, Alpha DEAR CARRIE,

Driving from Ibague to Bogota was quite an experience. The highest spot we crossed was 14,000 ft. Up that high it was rainy and so foggy that we could hardly see two yards ahead. And then the climb down, but not down very far was beautiful. Sometimes I hardly dared look at the view. 1 wish I could adequately describe everything along the way. The small towns we traveled through all looked alike with a plaza in the center of town ; and all along the streets, the houses were built right next to the sidewalks or earth-walks as the case may be. Many towns looked very deserted. Then out of the towns one would see poor people walking or on mule or horseback - also a few passenger cars, some jeeps, but mostly trucks. One sees mostly dark clothing worn here. A top coat is a necessi ty although the poorer class native women wear a large black shawl wrapped around them over thei r long dresses, and only sandals, no stockings. The native men wear ponchos, similar to the Mexicans, over their clothingbut here they are called ruanas, not ponchos. Most native women wear hats that look like men 's hats, either of felt or like Panama hats. The men wear felt hats. But along side of these native costumes, one ees the better class people dressed as one would dress in Michigan on a cool fall day. The money they use here is very easy to get used to. It is in the same denomination as ours except for a quarter they have a 2 centavo piece as well as a 1 centavo piece. There is no fifty centavo piece, but once in a while one gets a 1 peso bill that has been torn in two for two fifties. Crazy, eh ? The exchange though is not equal with American dollars. When we first came the current rate was for every $1 one could receive 1 peso 75 centavos. Toothpaste here costing 70 centavos- so that would equal about 40垄. On a Saturday night we visited a night club- the Monte Carlo. That was the first and only evening we stepped-out. The Monte Carlo is similar to any better class night club in the States with a small dance floor and tables, at various levels around the floor. The orchestra was very good and didn 't play many fast numbers. I had expected to see dancing and fussy dresses similar to what we'd seen in Puerto Rico but the couples danced and dressed as they do in the States. I was very amu ed at eeing chaperones at some tables. Here it is quite the custom. One lady almost fell out of her chair trying to keep an eye on her daughter whose escort always kept her dancing on the opposite side of the floor . At times the lady could get a good view and she'd sit back in her chair very much relieved- then when the view was gone, she'd practically stand up in order to ee better. We visited a bull fight also. Our seats were in a front row so we bad a good view. The arena is perfectly round with a double wall. Below our section the bull-fighters and their aides gathered when not in the arena. Their costumes were very fancy affairs beginning with a black braid cap elaborate waist coat, fancy tight knee-pants, pink ilk tacking and black ballet-like slippers. Fighting the bull goes through variou taae - the fir t is to worry the animal with fancy pinkish cape 路 then on man skill-

THE ANC HOR

fully attempts to stick two short wooden poles with metal barbs at the end, into the bull at the top of the shoulders (when this is accompli shed the spectators go wild and the bull jumps around trying to rid himself of these sticks); then again several men worry and tire out the animal; when he is about winded, the real bull-fighter comes into the ring, bows deeply, throws his cap in the air, and with his scarlet cape concealing a swo rd (I wonder if the bull was aware of his intentions) he continues to worry the beast until at the proper moment he attempts to plunge the sword into him near the shoulders. Sincerely, MARGARET PoLLOCK SMALL

A "Danny Gradll Pearl Parker, president, Beta Chapter, has been selected as the candidate from Central Michigan College to become a " Danny Grad." Each year Mr. Danforth (author of " I Dare You ") selects fifteen colleges and universities all over the United States to choose a graduating girl to go to 5 weeks' training camp to get further development of leadership abilities. She is then sent to some college or university outside her own state to work as a campus social work er with religious groups etc. for nine months. He offers $1300 for the 10 month period. Kathleen Sanford and Virginia Guy also Beta have been in his 2 week camp fo r college freshmen and benefited a good deal from the experience.

National A.F.C.W. Convention at Greensboro

S

EARCH for the truths of the past so that as we work in the present, our dreams of the future may be hastened into reality ;" this quotation from Mme. Chiang Kai-shek was the theme for the eleventh national convention of the Athletic Federation of College Women held at Greensboro, North Carolina April 18, 19, and 20. The A.F.C.W. was founded in 1916-17 under the guidance of Miss Blanche Trilling. former head of the department of physical education of the University of Wisconsin, to di cuss problems pertinent lo the athletic organization of colleges and universities in thi country. Attesting to the vitality of this organization is the fact that more than 300 students and many faculty members from 125 colleges representing 35 states ranging from the west to the east coast and from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada, met on the University of North Carolina Women's College campus to exchange ideas, solve problems, gain knowledge, and have fun. The purpose, as stated in the constitution, " ... shall be to further athletic interests and R uTH GRIFFITH activities for girls and women according to the highest and soundest standards of sports and recreation. The Federation shall strive to increase consciousness of its purpose during and after college. " Of the pitfalls of Women 's Recreational Association members, these were the most common: too many girls out for one sport and too few for another ; too much reliance on posters and bulletin boards for publicity instead of the actual program itself, and the board members all of one clique or area. . In summarizing the meetings two outstanding trends were noticedthat of recognition of the state organization and the trend toward a co-recreational program. Others were: state conferences are of unlimited value to A.F.C.W.; close, friendly, working companionship between the physical education departments and the W.A.A. ; general trend is away from point system; trends toward small individual awards for participation ; extramural competition as the play day and sports day ; National Section on Women's Athletics standards must be observed路 a well rounded program is the best publicity agent. Doctor Harold D. Meyer, Department of Recreation , Univer-ity of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in his addres at the banquet stres ed that recreation should not be considered just as the active ports, but also such activities as photography, writing, dramatic , etc., and that in recreation we mu t have a balanced program for all ages, all sexe all race ," and that young women of the colleges and univer ities hould work to attain this goal. R TH GRIFFITH Iota 4 Delegat to tltc .t.F . .H'.


Lillian Vogt Schippers, Acting Editor of the "Anchor" I ILLIAN VOGT SCHIPPERS was a charter L member of the local sorority which became the Pi Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau at Harris Teachers College in 1930. It was taken for granted that "Lil'' was Chapter Editor and Recording Secretary during Collegiate days. In the Alumnre, however, she expanded her activities to include being president. Lillian edited the first Alpha Sig-Nal ai: the convention in St. Louis. After graduating from Harris Teachers College, Lillian did social case work for a year. Then she taught at the Long and Irving Schools. On Sept. 2, 1944, Lillian married Dr. Parry F. Schippers, a dentist. However she has not given up her career and is now teachLILLIAN Vo cT ScHIPPERs ing in a private school. Lillian has several hobbies. The one that gives her the greatest pleasure is writing. She has taken several courses in short story writing at Washington University. Recently she wrote a book for her pupils who keep clamoring for more. The story is about Lillian's pet rooster, Scennacarib, who is certainly an unusual one. He resents the fact that more interest is shown his mistress than himself. Matilda, a hen , is also a pet bu t Scennacarib rules the roost. Reading, sewing and traveling are Lillian's other hobbies. Dr. Schippers likes the outdoors; hunting, fi shing and golf and Lillian accompanies him often. Sometimes she thinks between her Iiobbies and her husband 's hobbies, there isn 't much time left for the serious pursuits. DELPHINE STRAUBE, Pi '45

Good taste is e:;sentially a moral quality. Taste is not only a part of an index of morality-it is the only morality. The first, last , and closest trial question to any living creature is, "What do yo u like ?"-and the entire object of true educati on is to make people not merely do the right things, but enjoy the right things. What we like determines what we are; and to teach taste is inevitably to form character. }OHN R usK I N


COLLEGIATE CHAPTERS

ALPHA CHAPTER Michigan State Normal College, Ypsilanti, Michigan The opening of school in September marked the beginning of an eventful season for the Alpha Chapter. Our first open house featured movies which were taken while we were at the cottage at Wamplers Lake during the summer. They showed the various activities we participated in and it was an excellent drawing card as far as rushees were concerned. Our informal party was held at our sponsor's home, Mrs. Lord, in the form of a Hallowe'en party. Our refrt!shments were in accordance with the Hallowe'en custom; cider, do ughnuts and apples. Our Treasure Hunt helped us to become better acquainted and left us feeling our party was very successful. Our preference pa rty was a formal dinner held at the Union. In our dinner gow ns we welcomed the new pledges: Conn a Campbell, Jean Da Fraini, Priscilla Jane, Jeanne Kanno and Lorraine Stigleman. Founders' Day was celebrated with a Tea held at McKenny Hall. Many of our alumn<e members came and an address was given by Fran Brown. Our annual Alpha Sig party was held at the Gilbert House in the form of a night club. Tables decorated with tiny lamps surrou nded the dance floor. The pledges acted as waitresses and helped make the evening one to be remembered . Normal's Homecoming was also a gala affair for us Alpha Sigs. In the pa rade which preceded the big ga me, we entered a float along with every club on the campus. Our theme for the float was "Floating Along the Torma! Way." We decorated the car with blue crepe paper and perched on top a row boat with two stuffed life-sized figures in it. One represented an Alpha Sig and the other an injured Albion football player. Mother ature didn 't seem to be in the spirit of things as it rained all day, but regardles of the fact that our decorations were drenched, our spirits weren 't. In the midst of our packing and preparations for the holidays, we had our Chri tma party at Mrs. Lord's. Inlead of the usual exchange of gifts, we

donated money for our Social Service Fund which went toward the adoption of a European War Orphan. At every party we have given, we have donated money toward this worthy cause. Our informal initiation was postponed until later this spring since arrangements could not be made to rent the cottage at the lake during the winter. Following our breakfast at the Union, we had our Formal Initiation the second week of the new semester and the pledges became eager actives. They are now helping plan the new rush season which will begin in a short time with a Panhellenic meeting. The Alphas are set for a new and busy se mester and have many exciting plans on the agenda so as we look ahead we'd like to extend our best wishes to our other far-away sisters. JEAN BURNOCK, '-l9

BET A CHAPTER Central Michigan College of Education, Mt. Pleasant, Michigan We just want to shout to the big wide world all the wonderful things that have happened to the Betas since our last writing. Of course we've had bridge parties, regular meetings, and all the usual run together, but with wonderful new surroundings to top it all off. For we, the Betas, have a new so rority room ! Sorority houses are banned here at Central , but the Gover family has given us their basement recreation room to use as our very own. It has pine paneling on the walls, a coke bar, stools made of nail kegs, and a chandelier fashioned from a wagon wheel! We even have a mascot, "Mr. Bones," a life-sized, cardboard skeleton who resides in our closet. A "shingle'' hung outside our door proclaims to the world that this i "Our Tau Haven," and what a wonderful pot it is. We hold all our business meetin!!S there, a well as ocial gathering . A few weeks ago, after our regular meeting. we entertained our brother fraternity. the Sigma Tau Gamma , at Tau Ha,·en. The whole gang at on the floor drank coke , ang, and had a marvelous time.

And with spring and summer so much in evidence, we 're already getting excited abo ut the spring housepa rty at Houghton Lake.

IOTA CHAPTER Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia, Kansas The closing of the spring term leave3 th e I ota girls many memories to think

upon this summer when we are scattered throughout the country-side. We are exceptionally lucky in onl y lo'sing two of our girls, Dottie Price and Velma Vlcek, to the graduating class of '4 7. Emporia State's annual recognition convocation was held as usual and, as usual, Alpha Sigma Tau had her share of the honors. Dorothy Overholt, Lorena R oberts, and Ruth Griffith were all on the honor roll. Congratulations also go to Bobbie Puhr, a second semester pledge, who was asked to join Pi Kappa Delta, the national honorary forensic society, this being quite an hon or for a freshman . Ruth Gri ffith was initiated into Lambda Delta Lambda, a nati onal hon ora ry physical science fraternity; honors also to Ruth Puckett who was elected secretary of the national honorary co mmerce fratern ity, Pi Omega Pi. Iota contin ues to have acti ng talent in her group. Bobbie Boynton, new to Emporia State second semester, and our

pledge, played in both the productions that the speech department presented this spring. . . . "I Remember Mamma," the first and "State of the Union" next. Marjory Stead, our soloist on our Sweetheart song, helped the Treble Clef of the music department present a lovely concert this spring. And Phyllis Schroeder and Ruth Griffith were also in a spring concert-these girls were among the dancers in Rhythmic Circle, Emporia State's modern dance club, which pleased the audience with a variety of dances. The Alpha Taus really went to town in working with the Women's Recreation Association' of Emporia State. An active interest was taken by our group and we participated in every sport! Incidentally we walked off with the second place plaque for the year's intramural program - the program was based on competition and participation. Ruth Griffith was elected as one of the two delegates to represent our W. R. A. at the national Athletic Federation of College Women at Greensboro, orth Carolina. She had a great time and came back chuck full of new ideas which, as vice-president for the coming year, she hopes can help the organization. Mother Nason, our "college mother" was our guest of honor at one of our Thursday evening dinners this spring on which we celebrated her tenth year of being with us. We certainly appreciate the wonderful service and love that she has given us. But gee, all this talk and no parties? Oh no-our annual spring formal was beautiful and grand fun for all. "Tau Heaven ," our theme, was carried out in the decorations by a pastel colored crepe paper false ceiling with a picket fence gate opening into the ballroom . Cherubs around the walls plus an angel above the band completed the decorations. The Iota <>iris look forward every spring to having their "mothers' weekend" in which our mothers come for a weekend and both mothers and daughters have a grand time. This year we had a barbecue picnic in the school park and then went to a how. On Sunday we all attended Church and then had dinner at the house. We like to show ou r mothers our home here at school. ot only were many rushees entertained this term at the Alpha Tau hou e but also the Alpha Tau Alums at a tea for them . We had a centerpiece of yellow jonquils and napdrago ns, and a musical pro!(ram provided the entt>rtainment.

We girls were entertained too! Miss Helen Garman. our sponsor, had a scrumptious buffet supper at her home and our alums gave us a wonderful picnic. Incidentally the alumnre chapter initiated twelve new alums into its folds. It is a good feeling to know that we have a strong alumnre chapter back of us. Dottie Price already has sianed the dotted line as general assistant librarian in the Faribault, Minne ota library. And we're proud as punch of Lois Heubert because she has been accepted in membership in the class of Physical Therapy at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. he and Dottie are already planning their get-to-gethers. ext year with Lois Anderson, Mardy Bell, Bobbie Boynton, Joyce Hedges, and Jean Ruby , our newly initiated actives and with Betty Geist our new president, Iota can not help but have a succe sful year and she wishes all the rest of you the same.

PI CHAPTER Harris Teachers College, St. Louis, Missouri Pi girls were all smiles a few short weeks ago when we became Basketball Champs of '4 7, after defeating Pi Kappa Sigma in a thrilling game. They had been champs for the last tw o years, and all of us think the team captain, Jean Kountz, did a wonderful job of getting the team in shape for the championship. Those early morning practice sessions in the gym worked wonders. Congratulations to our hard-working team. On Saturday, May 15, the chapter gave an informal party and dance for the Veteran's Club at H. T . C. Ruth Beeson and her committees worked long and hard decorating and planning, with the result that the place had a gay carnival atmosphere, aided by balloons galore. A juke box and our own favorite records furnished the music, and everal peppy dance mi.'<ers succeeded in getting the party rolling moothly. everal of the gi rls' mothers took charge of the kitchen, barring entrance to all e.xcept those on business-bent, and in a urpri inaJy short time ser ed dozen upon dozens of juicy, grilled hot dog , with all the trimmings.

THE ANC HOR curred just before time to leave. The beginning of the spring semester found Pi girls literally bursting with energy and enthusiasm. Our very elegant form al rush party at the Hotel Lennox was happily climaxed by the acquisition of two wonderful new pledges, Dorothy Van de Voo ren, and Betty J ean Laminger. The question of who enj oyed the party more, actives or rushees, is still being debated. The evening began with a vigorous game of "H and shaking," during which seve ral pennies were passed un obtrusivel y fr om hand to hand. All rushees "caught" with penni es were asked to sing several peppy sorority so ngs, assisted by the actives, of course. A game of "Human Lotto" followed, after four of our enterprising yo ung Thespians presented their very entertaining version of " Darlin' Nell." A table groaning with food " hit the spot" with everyone, and the evening drew to a sentimen tal close with the acti ves singing sorority songs, and finall y presenting each rushee with the sorority colors. We were all thrilled to claim M iss Julia Kohl, H arris' mu ch-admired librarian, for our new co-advisor. Miss Kohl is a gradu ate of Wisco nsin University, and has already proved a very valuable and well-loved addition to the sorority. The social season started with a gay "Big and Little Sister Party." The girls all met at the home of J eanni e Doyle for a light buffet supper of hot dogs, potato chips, soda, cookies, and all t he trimmings, after which we all made hasty tracks for the Arena roller rink, for an exciting evening of laughs, spills, a nd general confusion. F ortunately, we are happy to say that no seri ous casualties occurred, and a wo nderful time was had by all. The marriage of Opal Lang to Philip Neuman on March 21 was a beautiful, mem orable event, well attended by actives and alumnre. Opal is making her new home in the city, and we 're very happy to have her remain in the active chapter. Pi girls were all elated to become "aunti es" on J anuary 28, w !~e n a bouncing baby girl was delivered to Betty J oy McLean (Betty J oy Webb ). The chapter was well represented on the rolls of several national honora ry fraternities this semester, when J eann e Leilich and J ane Condon joined the ranks of Kappa Delta Pi. M any of the other girls have pledged other honor societies also.

Our second annu al "Skit Nite" was a huge succes , in spi te of to rrential downpours, and num ero us co mplications. T he large auditori um was completely fi lled with an enthusiastic audience of H arrisites, parents and friends. Strangely enough, t he two sorori ties which carried off the honors l a~ t year staged a repeat perform ance, winning in the same ord er. Many clever skits were given, revea ling much local talent. We're all pro ud as punch of our brand new pledge of a few weeks, Melba Ill inager.

ZETA TAU CHAPTER State Teachers College, Farmville, Virginia The warm summer breezes are blowing and that means it' ti me for picnics. We Zeta T aus had a really super one on May 17. I t was held at Longwo od in the rustic little log cabin . The fo od was delicio us, thanks to our toi ling chefs. Plenty of merry making fo llowed, and the fun lasted on into the night. We have had so many wonderful times this past quarter. T he rush party was a great success. It was held in "Tau H eaven," and we were completely surround ed by constellations, pajamas and pun ch.

The Chapter room was fi lled with just the best looking co uples you. ever saw at our Panhell , Mardi Gras and Cotill ion intermission pa rti es.

OMEGA' S CHRISTMAS PARTY

OMEGA CHAPTER Minot State T eachers C olleg e, Minot , North D akota Dan Cupid has really been working here in the Omega Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau. First of all he shot his arrow at our president of last year, Marion elson, who is teaching this year. Then he spotted Betty Haner, another al umnre who is working here at M.S.T.C. Of course he had to hit an active and the arrow hit Clarice Rhoads. Then back to an alumna, and this time it was Jan ice Henderson of Sherwood. Christmas vacation bro ught one more engagement into our midst. Delaree Morley, one of our queen candidates. Her fiance is the senior president and they intend to be married at the end of the quarter and leave for the Un iversity where he will get his master路s degree. Delaree has already left us. But to her and all the re t, we wish much happiness. We Alpha Sigs rea lly had a good send off for Christmas vacation. December 18, in the Student Union Fireplace room, the pring initiates gave us a dinner, a time didn 't permit them to, in the pring. Those who served were Beth und, Virf:(inia Halver on, Clarice Rhoads , Maybelle German , Lillian Roalkvam, Ethel Thompon , delaide Johnson and Elaine viegen. The dinner wa formal , and afterward

After the opening of the gifts we held initiation services for Margery Evans, an active now, Mrs. Bertha Weyrauch and Mrs. Louis McClean, two former Delta Epsilon Phis. As a contribution to M.S.T.C. this year we again published the annual directory and distributed it, the first week after Christmas vacation. It includes the names, addresses and phone numbers of everyone enrolled, also the names and addresses of faculty members. Our winter rushing went off with great success. Miss R eishus, our advisor gave the rush tea at her home, January 19. Winter Wonderland was cho en for a theme. Delaree Morley and Shirley Anderson, dressed in skating costumes, met each girl at the door, escorted her to the dressing room, where each rushee was presented with her favor, a pin repreenting a winter sport. A clever snowman with a program and a list of all our actives, advisers, and patronesses printed on them , were given to each girl aJ o.

This year we decided to do so mething new and different for our local Founders' Day. We took off for a weeke nd at Lake Metagousie. We rented three cabins, loaded cars with food , bedding and twenty girls and away we went. Miss Anderso n, Shirley Anderso n and Beth Sund too k cars. We left Minot but didn't get very far before trouble over to ok u and Miss Anderson had to go back to Minot to get a fuel pump for Beth's ca r. We stopped at Newberg on the way and there Beth's mother gave us a most delicious dinner. We appreciated the hospitality of the Sund's ve ry much, especiall y Jan Kell y, who forgo t her mother"s birthday until she had left Minot. She had a chance to call and several of the girls sang "H appy Birthday" over the phone. On Saturday we did anything we pleased. We expl ored the lake, took pictures. Two of the girls posed in bathing suits although it was only the seco nd of May with snow at our back doo r and ice on the Lake. It looked good to the girls back at school. Saturday afternoon we took the cars and drove all over to the different beaches, and hiked several miles even though the wea ther was a little raw. This was not only F ounders' Day but also Miss Anderson 's birthday. We had a lot of fun trying to pank her, but at supper time we drank toa ts to her and to the future of Alpha Sig. Saturday evening we went to the neighboring town of Botineau. Some of us went to the show, while the rest went to a regular old time dan ce. It was a great deal of fun and we all went to bed all tired out. Sunday morning we were go ing to leave early so we could keep appointments in Minot, but poor Beth, had lost her jacket with the car keys in it. Miss Anderson had to go to Botin ea u to ha ve new ones made. The weekend was an event never to be forgotten and we ha ve de cided that it will be an annual get together with us. Incidentally Beth ha her jacket now. It was found in Botineau and mail ed to her.

It was held at the beautifully deco rated Co untry Club and each member's guest received a tie pin with a gold AST crest on it for a favor. Dancing and a special program made it a gala evening. " Burpie" Johnso n, our a ble treasurer, was one of the proudest of our group when the yearbook The Star finally arrived from the publishers and was pounced on with jubilant glee by every student.

After much cramming and a little worrying, we were ready for the annual so rority test. We hope all our sisters everywhere passed with fl yin g colors.

We're still looking back over th e past three months of this term in a sort of happy daze, wondering how we ever man aged to pack so much fun and so many activities into such a short length of time. The highlight on our social calender was, of course, our Spring formal. Because it was Spring, we decOl'ated the ball room with lots of flowers and pastel co lors. We chose as our theme, a "Maypole Dance" and ca rried it out by having a maypole covered with beautiful pastel streamers standing in the center of the room . Nosegays of fl owers helped carry the theme through , and soft li ghts and soft music added to the effect and made it a wonderful dance we'll always remember. More fun was in store for us when we in vited our mothers up for the week-end of Apri l 19-20. We all had a frolickin g good time at our banquet, breakfast, a nd tea- and of course it was loads of fun meeting a ll the other mothers.

MUNCIE ALUMNJE Greetings from Muncie! We have just completed t wo years in our life as Muncie alumna! and in reminiscing, I think it is the thought of every member that it has been good to be a n Al pha Sig ma Tau. Our fell owship together has enriched our lives and broadened our horizo ns until now the cha llenge of life before us has new meaning. We have had some very good times

together. One of the outstanding meetings was a joint one held with the Alpha Alpha collegiate group of Ball State. They planned and conducted th e meeting and we all hea rd a talk by M iss Ma rtha Wi ckham, Directo r of Girls' Acti vities at Ba ll State, who spoke on "True Womanliness." We alu mna! served refreshments. I think we would all enj oy more joint meetings. They help to strengthen the fri endship of the two groups and he lp us all to kn ow one another better. In February, M iss Frances Botsfo rd, Collegiate sponso r, entertai ned the Mun cie alu mna!. A very timely talk was given by Miss Nancy Scramlin , another sorority sponsor, on "Health Problems of T oday." In April , Rachel Scott entertained us in her suburban home near ..Muncie and it was here that fi nal plans were made for the formal initiati on and our local Fo unders' Day tea which were to climax our activities for the year. New offi cers were elected for 19.f7-.f8 and are: Mrs. Vernon Fox, president ; Mrs. J . Carl Humphrey, vice-president; M rs. Lamar Wyrick, record ing secretary ; Mrs. Leon Scott, co rresponding secretary; Mrs. R obert H arshman, historian ; Mrs. Louis E. Nelson, chaplain ; M rs. Robert W. Wallace, editor ; Mrs. Roger ottingham, magazine chairman. On Saturday, May 17, in East L ounge at Ball State, initiati on of four seni ors fr om the collegiate gro up into M uncie alumna! was held . T hey were Phyll is Shuman, Martha Willman, Ma rt ha Zigler, and June J ackson. Annual reports were given by th e past year's officers. In the aftern oo n a lovely tea and candlelight service were held at the home of Madonna Gilbert. M any of the alu mna! who had

not been ab le to attend monthl y meetings we re back for the tea and all enjoyed renewing acquaintances and visiting with old fri ends. Muncie Alumnre are very proud to repo rt that a distinctive honor has come to one of its members. Mrs. Jessie 1ae Waggo ner Sanderson , Alpha Alpha '46, has been selected as one of five outstanding younger librarians of the United States. She has charge of the Lin co ln Park Branch of the Way ne County Public Library, Detroit, and will attend the Assembly of Librarians of the Ameri cas, convening in Washington, D.C. during the last of May through June. Invitations were ex tended by Luther H. Evans, Librarian of Congress, to thirty leading li brarians in Latin America a nd many of the leading librarians in the United States a nd Canada, but only five of the younger members of the profe3sion have been in vited. J essie Mae has been active for so me time in the Junior Members Section of the Michiga n Library Association and a t pre:ent is servin g as chairman of that orga nization. She is a graduate of Ball State and the School of Library Science at the University of Mich igan. Miss Frances Botsford, Alpha Alpha and Muncie Alumnre spo nsor, has the distinction of ow ning one of the few collections of antique typewriters in the United States. Miss Botsford, associate profe~s or of busineEs education at Ball State Teachers College, has her collection of twenty-fo ur typewriters on display in Room 301 Science Hall. H er co llection, though in com plete, has so me im portant and va luab le machines showing the development of the typewriter. Several of

the machines were donated by former Ball State students and others by Muncie business men and women. The oldest machine, a Model 2 Remingt on, was manufactured in 1878. She has two of thi model. Variety is evident in her collection, the machines ranging from a Japanese typew riter ; a Blicke nsderfer ; a Corona porta ble; a Caligraph; a Smith Premier; three Hammond ; an Oliver ; a noiseless portable; a Den more; and a n O'Dell. Miss Botsford is still lo oking for several other models treasured as collectors路 items and if she could collect all she wants, would have aro und one hundred . Muncie Alumnre and Alpha Alpha chapters are indeed proud of Mi s Botsford's unique co llectio n. MARY WALLA CE,

lenburg's was gay and entertaining thanks to the work of Irene Wunderlich, Ruth Brungard , Lenore Tidlow Horne and Ruth R auschenberger. Emily Reedy reported that the alumn re rummage sale netted $63 for Lambda Chapter. Although we should all be thoroughly familiar with the history and work of Penland School, most of us for the first time were defi nitely acquainted with its aims and acco mplishments through an excellent report given by Betty Maisch and E linore DeCou . We were happy to have as guests at this meeting Maria n MacPhee, Zeta, and Betty Yeagley, Psi. Carolyn Ogle, E leanor Heydrick, and Betty Cooling entertained us with a St. P atrick 's party at Carolyn 's home in March . After the business meeting Lois O'Dell led us in a round table discussion concerning behavior problems in children of pre-school age . In April we entertai ned the 1 9-17 Lambda graduates and their adviser, Mrs. Fairlamb, at the annu al Graduate's Party. The party this year was held at the home of Ruth Knapp with Lois Blackburn and Mary Whitley as co-hostesses. Again we were privileged to participate in the di gni fi..~d initiation service at which we welcomed as new members of our chapter: Doris Wetter, Lambd a; Inez Plumley, Lambda; Jean Gilbert, Lambda; Mary Whitley, Lambda; Betty Yeagley, Psi; and Edwinna Davis, Zeta. This year the Mother-Daughter Tea was held at the home of President Peg Reed on the Saturday preceding Mother's Day. This purely social event has deep significance to us for its bri ngs our mothers into close contact with our sorority group. An appropriate program was

provided by Na ncy Fbher, monologuist and by th e members oi our music committee. Charlotte Kin g and Polly So uder were hostesses at our regular May meeting at Charl otte's home. Peg Reed reported that various mem bers of our music co mmittee had ea rned money for the treasury by singing for other groups, and that they already have some engagements for next fall. We are very, very proud of these girls for their talent and their readiness to work for so rority. Betty Scherbaum , Lambda president, was initiated at this meeting. After the repo rt of the nominating committee, we un anim ously elected the follo wing officers for next year: Clai re J enki ns, president ; Peg Reed, vice president; Irene Wunderl ich, recording sec retary; Doris Kaufm ann , co rresponding ~ecretary ; Lois O'Dell , treasurer ; Ru th Knapp , historian; Do ris Wetter, chaplain ; Charlotte Kin g, editor.

against a white lace paper doily, tied with delicately colored pastel ribbons. When these were placed before every mother's plate, they added a gay and festive air to the table. The president gave a short address of welcome, the chaplain asked an appropriate blessing, and the feast began. Sixty five mothers and daughters enjoyed the roast beef and trimmings a nd then settled back to wait for the program prepared by the chai rman of th e party, Grace Walters. T welve girls left the table immediately after dessert and when they reappeared, half of them wore oldfa shioned costumes, complemented by the other half in comparable modern dress. Such veiling, fl owers, draped skirts, puffed sleeves, lace insertions-! never saw the like but many of th e mothers remembered the styles shown. The clever patter of the skit, plus the piano accompaniment added to the fun of the evening. The last order of business was the a warding of the attendance prize. For the past two yea rs my mother has won , and if she had won this yea r also, I'm afraid both she and I would have been unwelcome guests indeed . However, Mrs. Herman Ziegenmeyer, mother of Ruth Z. Lewis who now lives in Detroit, won the lovely centerpiece of yellow and red calendulas. We all enjoyed our party very much, and are looking forward to next year's already. EVELYN L UECKING

WAR ALUMN.!E In December the War Alumn:拢 met at the home of Lolloh Waite in Caretta for their annual Christmas party with Doris Berta and Maryalyce Cox assisting as hostesses.
