interest shown by so many of our alumna " Yet, her chapter represents one of the most active chapters, a group which ha k pt together through correspon dence and alumnae chapter affiliation wherever possibl . One of the most gratifying feelings as Alumnae Chairman is that of being abl to notify an alumna who moves to anoth r city that there is a n Alpha Sigma T a u Alumna Chapter there, and to notify the Pr 路 id ent of that local group that she has another prospective member. Unfortunately, ma ny moves are made to locations wher we still du not have alumnae chapters-no "concret " mea ns of displaying fri endship. Man y alumn ae have moved to strange towns, become affili a ted with the local alumnae chapter an d hav had their stay in that new home made mor pi as a nt by Alpha Sigma T au associa tion . Th re a re hundred more living in citi es with other sorority sisters whom they don't even know . Alumnae R epresen tatives have bee n making a strong effort to keep track of the e "scattered alumn il.e," keep them informed of sorority affairs and give them gos ipy news about college fri ends. Each one of you has som ething your sorority needs-it may be a particul a r kill or talent, or a chee ry note to your Alumn ae R epresentative a bout yourself, your famil y or a fri er.d, a post card to the Alum R ep that you did enjoy h er New letter.

BY MRS. LEO

J.

GAFFNEY,

National L ife Membership Chairman

Good Standing is something that you cannot see, h ear, feel, ta te or smell but it i a very desirable thing to pos ess. Payment of your life membership i one of the requirements of Good Standing. You need it to be eligible for m ember hip in an alumnae chapter. W e have thirty-five alumnae chapters in a many ities in the United States. Think of wh a t it could mean to you should you find yourself, a stranger, in any one of the e citie ! You immediately have a circle of friends bound together by ties that are tronger than you can realize until you have had uch an experience. Life member hip in Alpha Sigma Tau has come about through neces ity. During our ea rly history we had no such requirement. News L etters were ent out free to all alumnae. The next step was the adoption of the present fee but more time was allowed for the payment. Member had two year after graduation or leaving school to complete the payment. Many of these payments were never completed . This put the burden upon the ones who were paying. Alumnae were still receiving the Chapter News L etter free. Time changed and prices began to spiral up and up . o more free News_ L etters-it can't be done and Life M embership must be paid before graduation or leaving chool to keep in good standing.

Gretchen Gaffney

;\; LIFE MEMBERSHIP in Alpha Sigma T au can mean a great deal to each one of us. The cost is really small in comparison to the things we receive for the payment of the fee. There is a! o the added satisfaction an d good feeling it brings to know that we are assuming our share of the cost of sprea ding the ideals and purposes of Alpha Sigma T au . The fee h as never been raised, it is still fifteen doll ars, which is payable before gradua tion or when leaving school. This ruling was adopted by the sorority in convention at Cincinnati. The material things that we receive are THE ANCHOR of Alpha Sigma Tau and your own chapter News L etter. You will receive them for the rest of your life. We will have to have your correct name and address at all times to be able to do thi~. R egardle s of changes th at may be made in the future in the ost of life memb r hip, your tatu will not change. You are a life member and as such will receive all the benefits it offers.

M embership in an al umnae chapter can mean more to you tha n the two or three year you have in the collegiate chapter. I h ave been an active member of the Flint Alumnae Chapter for at lea t fourteen year . The fri endship I have made from this m ember hip mean more to me than I can convey. We work together not only for our own chapter, but for the two close t collegiate cha pters and our national ocial ervic ,. ork. Wherever there are five or more lpha Si()'ma Tau' livin()' in a illage, town or cit it will be worth your while to p tition the Central Office for a Charter for your own lub or chapter. 4

BoLLARD,

N ational Pledge Chairman ;\; THERE is no phase of collegia te sorority life that h as more far-reaching significance than pledge education . Upon the effectiveness of intelligent pledge training rests the future stability and progress of the orority. After the rushing period with its a ttendant excitement, ha rd work, a nd stimul a ting competition, the collegiate chapter members sometimes tend to "relax" and to enj oy the prospect of having these new sisters as active m embers and loyal fri ends. This m ay be a da ngerous attitude because in our compl acency we sometimes feel that once girls have become pledged to Alph a Sigma T au, th ey a re ready to assume full responsibilities of group membership and possibly lea derhip, and in this we are sadl y mistaken . The new pledge is usually enthusiastic, curious, a nd immensely eager to participa te in all activiti es of thi new affili a tion. It is a grave re ponsibility, therefore, for the chap ter to guide this new member into full understanding of the sorority world, and, in addition, to help each pledge to achieve h er own maxim um potentialities for h appy relationship in college, in the sorority, a nd in the community outside th ese groups of which sh e is a part. The n a tional Pledge Study committee provid es ma teri als to assist each cha pter in the orientation of new members to sorority life. The genera l aims have been to promote the Alpha Sigma T au obj ectives of ethical, cultural, a nd social development of each member. The more specific goals. of the pledge study program may be summa rized as1- To give the pledge a n understanding a nd apprecia tion of the true significa nce of Alph a Sigma Tau by explaining the history a nd development of the sorority; its place in the larger world of Pan hellenic; the rela tionship between alumnae, collegia te, and college; responsibilities of membership ; traditi ons; ideals ; and ritual. 路 2- T o promote the development of the whol e personality of the pledge so that sh e may become the best individual of which sh e is capable by guiding her in the rea liza tion of all fa c tors th a t comprise the total well-

t As we a re a bout to complete our cycle as a collegiate Tau, we look back upon our life in so rority, an d with that refl ec tion we realize how large a part of our coll ege lives we would have missed h ad we not joined a sorority, a nd especiall y h ad we not joined Alpha Sigma Tau. There was the rapidity of rushing, the promises of pledging, and the inspira tion of initia tion to be ad ded to our experience. As freshm en we were awed and humbled by the inta ngibl e ties that bound the girl in a tru e sisterhood. During our sophomore yea r we began to feel as if we were a truly vital part of the group. W e had an opportunity to m aintain the high standards and traditions that

we inherited. W e felt a re ponsibility in choosing those who were to follow u but still we looked to our older si ter for a uida nce. Then we becam e juniors and becam increasingly a ware of the purpose a nd a lue of AST. More tha n ever we wer proud to wear th e pin which stands for er ice a nd leadership. Now we a re seniors a nd we h a e a umed the lea dership of a group which we feel ha the same devotion to the ideal of Alph a igma Tau as we h ave. Our pra er for the fu ture is that the sororit will continue to inspire others as it h a u .

The choosing of a Top Tau from each of the collegia te ch apters is a new award this year. Each chapter has an outstanding memher who should be honored whether sh e is presid ent of the chapter or an all around good member- she will be symbolic of what

our sorority stands for. The Top Tau will be chosen from among your own members as three girl ' names were submitted from each chapter. She will be selected on th basis of campus and sorority activitie 路 a nd schol arship. In addition sh e wi ll a! o be a person who typifies true womanlin e s a nd a gracious way of living to you who know her.

CourlMIJ Bv DoROTHY STADLER, Nationa l Court esy Chairman ;\; WHEN we repeat th e Creed of Alpha Sigma T au, each member declares her belief in the importa nce of: "Cultiva ting Beauty of Spirit and Graci ousness of Living in all m y contacts with others." It is in tha t spirit, that the Courtesy Committee of Alpha Sigma T au a ttempts to perform the task of practicing the various acts of courtesy a nd good manners. In the O ctober 1944, issue of THE ANcHoR, Miss Irene Scrivener, Rho Cha pter adviser, wrote an inspiring m essage interpreting these lines of our Alpha Sigma T au Creed. I quote from the . article. "As we strive to reach the standard set for us in these words of our creed, it will be helpful to consider what orne of the World's greatest thinkers have sa id in regard to the value of Courtesy

and th e qua lities tha t one should cultivate in order to be socia ll y pleasing." ((L ife is not so shoTt but there is always time for Court esy., -EM ERSON. ((For manners are not idle, but the fru it of loyal nature and of noble mind., - TEN 'YSON.

Cxaminalion6 BY RuTH S. Fox National Examinations Chairman ;t. EXAMINATION S are necessary, just a occasionally it is necessary to examine one's self to find out whether th e course we are taking is the one we had planned and hoped to follow. Part of our ritual says "Wha tsoever things-Think on these things." W e cannot learn the ritual required without doing som~ thinking about "these things," a nd thus makmg them part of our daily lives. So ou r sorority examinations hold us to the course of high ideals a nd sta ndards planned by the Founders of Alpha Sigma Tau . As Examination Chairman, I do not make the tests. M y job is simply to grade them

a nd th en report a nd record the results. Th stand a rds are high, each girl is required to score 80 % on all tes ts. This job sounds routine and it is; but by correspondence with girls ~nd advisers, th y h ave become much more tha n names. The little anxieties, worri es, an d upsets that hapters sometim es tell me abo ut, make us one big a nd very hu ma n group of sisters. But if by doing thi s routin e task of grading tests, I contribute just a small service towa rd making the organ ization of our Alpha Sigma T au function more smoothl y, I'm happ y!

BY MRs. E. C . TwoRK National Music Chairman ;t. ONE of the duties of the National Music Chairman is to stimulate interest of the m embers in writing new songs. Previous experience shows that when there is a definite dema nd for songs there is a response. For instance in the prep aration of the Songbook by Sara h Perrine, many were the replies to h er reques"ts for songs, many finding their way into the Songbook of which we are so proud . After the Songbook was completed there was a definite drop off in the receipt of new songs. Sarah moved to California and asked to be released from the Chairma nship. For quite a long period no su ccessor was named until time to make preparations for the Ninth Convention in D etroit. R equ ests were made for suitable Convention songs. A contest was announced and the many replies were very gratifying. When all were presented in contest at the Convention not one but two were chosen as most outstanding. Once again Alpha Sigma Taus had responded . Since the convention there h as been an other lull. M~y I suggest that we could work on an original tune for "Our H ymn?" I have been told that some chapters dislike using the present tune as other fraternities and

The Winner in the ISTC Homecoming Parade Saturday was this tine entry. The theme was a gift basket of flowers to the school from the sorority, and a beautiful basket it was with its blooms of lovely faces. Not only was the idea unique. but the float was attractively and colorfully done.

Nancy Wright and T h elma Trunick were chosen ch eerleaders. At our Christmas party- which the pledges gave for the members at the College Lodge, December 14, we held an auction of articles which the girls made-mostly with the sorority in ignia embroidered. An auction held early this year was a big success a nd h elped the treasury ou t very much. O ur biggest honor was the winning of the cup for having the best floa t in the Homecoming Parade, O ctober 14. Each orority, fraternity and clu b on campu s entered a float.

;\; WITH new Panhellenic rules going into effect this spring, Lambda went into rushing with a bang. T empl e University now has only one formal rush sea on a year and open rushing exists for the remainder of the school year. "Party Happy" Lambda sta rted the yea r with a New Year's Party on J a nu ary 8. Foreign tudents were guests of the girls and everyone looked forward to a h appy and successful year. Various small " hobby" nights a nd "bowling parties" were interspersed among the formal parties in order to better acquaint us with prospective rushees. On February 10, we joined with the Philadelphia Alumnae in giving a card party and luncheon a t the Homstead R estaura nt. It was very well a ttended, and L ambda received approxima tely $16 as a result of the venture. Our heartfelt thanks go out to our Alums, who came through again, as always. Our especi al tha nks to Ruth Stockman Young, who worked like a Troj a n on thi s and many other proj ects for us. Our Valentine's D ay Pa rty took place on February 17, a t our " Cloisters." This da te affair was quite as successful as all our other parties. Formal ru hing opened on M arch 5, with an Open House. Lambda's theme this year was " Gypsy Caravan" a nd appropria te decora tions included a wheel of fortune, playing cards, and ta mborines galore. At Open House all rush ees circulate and spend approxima tely twe n~y minutes a t each sorority's pa rty. On March 8, we had our formal rush party, a dinner served a t the "Cloisters." Again the decora tions were on a gypsy theme, a nd the appearance of a fortun e telling gypsy, complete with crystal ball, highlighted the evening. Two evening which should bring us a sturdy ga ng of pledges when rushing result are an nounced. Lambda again has something to be proud of. At the Panhellenic T ea on February 16, it was a nnounced tha t we were again the recipients of the Scholarship Cup, given to the sorority with the highest average. It is ours for a year, and when we win it three years, we h ave permanent possession of it.

;\; THE Roanoke Chapter is well on the way to a prosperous first year. M eetings a re held in the homes of members, and a ttendance has been very good. In D ecember, the business meeting wa followed by a Christmas party. Everyone enjoyed the opening of gifts and the delightfu l refreshments. In a n effort to increase the treasury, the January meeting became a White El ephant Sale. The unseen purchases brought forth so mu ch laughter from the AlT's that the money spent was h ardly missed . R a ther than using the u ual theme for February, the business m eeting wa preceded by a most enjoyable spaghetti supper. The R everend Charles 0. Kidd of the Rocky Mount M ethodist Church joined us for the March m eeting. His down to earth talk on " Philosophies of Life" inspired us all. Although a program of flower a rra ngem ents and a picnic have been planned for this spring, we do spend much tim e and effort on things apart from social activities. The outlook for an efficient cha pter in Roanoke is very promising.-MARY ANN BooNE.

did find time for a da te party, a dinner dance, on D ecember 27, at Shady Acres in Saint Louis County. After a tremendou chicken dinner we played game , danced, and just talked. On Friday afternoon, D ecember 29, the actives gave a party for the alums and amazed us again with their versatility in giving different and enjoyable partie . On Washington's birthday, for the third year, we met at the Forest Park Hotel for luncheon and to play card afterwards. On March 3 we had a " Pot Luck" upper a t the home of Ilsa Bla nkenmeister . This i our easy and painles way of collec ting for the Endowment Fund. Each girl attending brings a main dish, salad, or dessert, a nd the rolls, coffee, etc. are bought by the hoste . Miss Edith Gla tfelter, Pi Chapter sponsor until her retirement from H arris T eachers' College gave the program a t the upper. In h er delightful way sh e poke on " Why I Like Chine e Thing ."

Wajhing.lon j Profjramj ;\; THIS year we have been having an interesting and entertaining program at each meeting. Our program chairman, M. T. Thomson, has really been passing out the new ideas.

Our officers for this year are as follows: Meda 'Ray Sewell, president ; Margaret Bowers, vice president; Marie Garber, recording secretary; Harriett Sterne, treasurer ; Dorothy Gates, corresponding secretary; Betty Lipps, historian; Martha Baker, editor; Dorothy Driver, chaplain; and Charlotte Douglas, City PanheHenic representative.
