Then there's the time, when in a wild "inbetween-events" rush, you press your formal on the bottom of a dresser drawer, while the line forms to the right for like service; the time-out to do the city with a ticket to a radio show ; the trek through air-cooled fabulous tore .

What Shall J Wear at the Convention? Ideal for train or tour-a trim lightweight suit, not too hot for the August sun. not too cool for the breezes off the lake.

A hat adds the finishing touch to a smart ensemble. You'll need one for the swanky Panhellenic tea on Thursday.

For the gala formal banquet you'll want a full length or new short evening dress, replete with glittering trim -jewelry, evening bag, heels.

For the opening luncheon on Wednesday following registration-how about a smart dark wrinkle-resistant street dress (shantung is good. cool too).


Bring a white dress for the inspirational initiation service.

Just because it"s August, don't forget a light coat or shorty. You'll be right on the shores of Lake Michigan where the breezes are refreshingly cool.

If you like the beach. do bring a bathing suit. The water is really invigorating and you might snatch a minute of it.



of the 31 Panhellenic editors met for the 5-day National Panhellenic Conference held in Williamsburg, Va., from November 27 through D ecember 1. URder the chairmanship of Marian Wiley Keys, editor of the Alpha Phi Quarterly, the sorority journalists discussed and compared notes on the problems of Panhellenic magazines, from costs to chapter letters. At one of the business sessions it was agreed that any c'1ditor obtaining an a rticl e (from someone outside her organization ) that would be of general Panhellenic inter-路 est, should try to get permission for the use of said article, by the other Panhellenic magazines. The other editors路 would then be notified that such permission for reprinting had been secured. Plans were also made to coopera te with the Citizenship Committee of National Panh ellenic, in presenting material arranged by this committee to the combined fraternitywoman readership of more than half a million. At an "Editors' Hour," given at one of the general sessions of the Conference, the following speakers represented the editors : Frances Warreh Baker, Sigma Kappa Triangle. mistress of ceremonies; Kim Rose, Triangle of Sigma Sigma Sigma, who spoke on the "Purposes of Our M agazines" ; Julia Fuqua Ober, formerly editor of the Angelus of K appa D elta (and now K appa D elta's na tional president ), on "An Editor Looks a t H er Past" ; a nd Dorothy Hummel Marshall, director of publica tion , Alpha Phi, on "How Do Fraternity Magazines Further a Public R elations Program ?" The 195 1 session closed with the election of Ann Hall, editor of the L yre of Alpha Chi Omega, chairma n for the next biennium, and Kim Rose, Tri-Sigma T riangle, secreta ry-treasurer .

Present at the National Panhellenic Conference in Williamsburg, Va., were Mrs. Parry Schippers. Mrs. Haswell E. Staehle, and Mrs. Joseph Steen.

A first order of business a t N a tional Panhellenic Conference's busine s sessions was the election to regular m embership of 11 women's fra ternities. The e groups, some of which form erly comprised the A ocia tion of Educa tion Sororitie , becam e associate members of PC in 194 7 a nd thi year became eligible fo r full membership .

GREAT radio networks help weave bright threads of democ racy in the tapestry of the United States of America fashion ed in 1949. The patterns of this rich radio tapestryNews R eports, Commentator's Comments, University Courses, Great Symphonies, Operas, and other educational and entertaining programs are sometimes breath-takingly beautiful. These comments are concentrated more specifically on democracy as exemplified in the weekly program, "Meet the Press." There is something spine-tingling about listening to the needling of our legislative officials by members of the press. Don't mistake me- l am not deriding it- I think it :s .a good thing, a heal thy sign of democracy in .action. For example, rather recently the Press were interviewing a certain senator, from the far W e t, who remained calm throughout the onslaught of their baited barbs. This broadcast delighted me because it brought to light an example of that almo5t ; extinct Genus Homo, who can stand on his hind legs and call his medulla oblongata his own, even when the resulting cogitations veer from the majority-trod pathway of his po-


litical party. H e expressed the opinion that his party should feel the obligation of standing for those measures that will protect the weak from exploitation by the politically strong. What person among you who takes active leadership locally or nationally does not know the full meaning of the "squeezeplay" or the "chopped-head" by his party or group if he dare go against the majoritytrod way or the habit-rutted road? Indeed even in church and club circles one feels, ometimes, as if between several devils and deep blue seas. It is startling to find a man who uses both hi heart and his head, motivated by his belief that we should place human values above material values. Since it is so easy to become big-headed when one is "on top of the heap," this certain senator i to be commended for his level-headedness. Our government, as its foun ders intended, should represent all of the people. Many times we hear from the lips of our brave men, who have been prisoners of war, pungent and prophetic words about the value of freedom, and our need for keeping it. In our democratic conception of giving freedom to other peoples we are finding the radio a powerful a nd colorful thread in that pattern of free men's democracy; for what stronger thread is there than knowledge woven with understanding into the pattern of fri endship and love?

Bv JANET LuTHER, Sigma ;\. I HAD always wondered what it would be like to visit Europe, to see all those exciting places which I had read about. This past summer my dreams came true, for I did visit Europe with the Friendship Tour, sponsored by Buffalo State T eachers College, under the leadership of Dr. Benjamin F. Gronewold, Professor 路 of Engl,ish at the college. W e sailed July 6 on the S.S. V eendam of the Holland American Line. ThiSI was our first introduction to European people and I made many friends on the voyage. On July 16 we docked at Le Havre and took the express train to Paris. H ere we saw the lights of the city at night, the sidewalk cafes, the parks, the artists, the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral, the cobblestone streets, the Palace of V ersailles with all its secrets, the Opera, and we even went to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Our next stop was Geneva, Switzerland, and our journey through the snow-covered Alps. We sat in on a session of the United Nations at the Palace in Geneva. From Geneva we traveled south to Florence, Italy, which is famous for its art. We visited the little leather and silver shops along the Ponte V eccio and had dinner with several young Florentine artists. Rome was our next stop, and I think it was the most interesting place we visited. We saw the ruins of ancient Rome, the Colosseum, The Forum, the Pantheon, the Vatican Citv, the Sistine Chapel, and the open-air Opera, which was held in the ruins of the Caraculla Bath . W e also had an audience with the Pope during our stay in Rome.

From Rome we visited Venice, and I had a gondola ride down the Grand Canal. In Milan we saw the original painting of "The L ast Supper." r - - - - - ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Janet Luther is a Top Tau this year. In addition to all her campus activities she enjoys music very much and teaches piano in her home.

Amsterdam was interesting, too. I think Holla nd was the most friendly country we visited. I met so many amiable people and am now corresponding with several of them. Volendam, where the people dress in the We visited the Hague, the flower auction at Alsmeer, a nd saw the quaint old town of traditional costume, with the wooden shoes. London was our last stop. Our group spent one day at Stratford-on-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace. We saw :Buckingham Palace, the crown jewels, Westminster Abbey, Piccadilly Circus, the Houses of Parliament, and we also spent a day at Oxford University. If anything, this trip made me appreciate more than ever m y home and m y country. After seeing the ruins and de truction in Italy, France, Holland, and England, I can better realize now what those poor people had to face. I saw tiny Italian children with deformed arms and twisted legs, caused by malnutrition during the war. I even saw children who h ad lost their arms or legs, begging in the treets. W e, in America, too often take too much for granted. I have learned to be more thankful for our great country and I now treasure more the liberty and freedom which America gives u s.

Women Participate _America Week " FROM THE NPC CITIZENSHIP COMMITTEE, Mrs. Joseph Grigsby, Chairman, Mrs. Cicero F. Hogan and Mrs. Beverl ey Robinson ~

How WELL do you know your America ? Do you know what the American freedoms are and why we treasure them? In hundreds of cities and towns throughout the nation on May 14 to 20, 1952, fraternity women will participate in Kno w Your America W eek. The b enefits and opportunities of the free way of life are increasing in importance to more and more people in every American community. Citizens will rededicate themselves to the preservation of the basic American principles which will be exemplified and dramatized through numerous and va ried programs planned in the respective communities during Kno w Your America W eek. What can you do? Fraternity women can plan programs within their Chapters and Panhellenics as well as volunteer their services to the local organizers, or if no organizers, 路can volunteer such leadership them~elves to the civic authorities or broadcasting studios in 路t heir communities. In observin~r Kno w Your America W eek, fraternity women can volunteer to present or take part in historical pageants ; college chapter houses can display the flag throughout the week (do our chapter houses own such emblems ? They should!) Fra ternity women can contribute choral groups ; they can offer to staff booths for the dissemina tion of information; they can speak on radio a nd community programs; and they can offer organiza tional experience or the "know how" to get thing done. Fra ternity m embers are among the most ~xperi颅 enced and devoted group of volunteer workers in the United States. Put the leadership training and organizational experience your fraternity h elped to develop in you at work during Kno w Your America Week. All programs throughout the United Sta te wil l highlight the story of our nation; its laws and liberties, its faiths and national origins ; its schools and churches ; its clubs and free associations ; its rights and responsibilities.


W e cellcge worn n have responsibility as citizens because we enjoy the fre da ms our forefath ers won for us. In recognition of this responsibility, the National Panhell enic Conference joins with 54 other na tional organiza tions representing approxima tel y 800,000 citizens all associa ted in the All-American Conferen ce in urging their memberships to observe and p articipate in Kno w Your America W eek. At a call ed meeting of delegates of the Nation al Panhell enic Conference on M arch 29, 1951; in Chicago, Illinois, the follo wing resolution was un animously adopted: "The National Panhellenic Conference becomes a member of the All-American Conference to Combat Communism, as a demonstration by the College Greek Letter soc1e'tie for women of their opposition to the philsophy and techniques of communism, and as evidence of their devotion to Am erica n freedom ." The All-American Conference who e pre ent headquarters are located a t Room 406, 1624 I Stree t N.W ., Washington, D. C. is an informational, educational and advisory body. Each participating organiza tion speaks for itself on matters of policy. It does not speak for the conference. The conference does not speak for it. Dr. Daniel A. Poling who serves a ch ai rman of the All-American Conference in a n address on world peace on June 27 195 1, before the Supreme Council Se sion of the United Commercial Travelers of America said among other things : "The price of freedom fir t of all is knowledge. W e need to know these United Sta tes of America .. .. W e need to know wh a t i going on in America. " Freedom is not free. Alwa s freedom ha its price. And tha t price has been paid . F reedom is both an inheritance and a n achie' ement. ... W e have it from tho e who ' ent before u , who in their time p aid the price. . .. Theirs is a fini hed work. But in orne sense, a t least, this freedom mu t be re-born in me, it mu t become al ive in me. I mu t m ake my contribution here and no' ." Fraternity women h ave their opportu nity to contribute here a nd now in K now Your America W eek, Ma 14-20 1952.

J.nlernaliona/ l:ducalion o/ _American Studenl:J HroHER EDUCATION, a publication of the Federal Security Agency, devoted much of its March 15 issue to an article entitled " The World Student Congress and International Education of American Students," written by Eugene G. Schwartz and Robert L. West, past vice presidents of NSA and m embers of the NSA group of "observer-delegates" who a ttended the World Student Congress held in Prague, last August. A copy of this bulletin may be obtained for ten cents from Office of Education, F ederal Security Agency, Washington 25, D . C. Among other interesting statements is the one which says that United States (NSA ) participation in the conference was limited because "too few students have been prepared to cope with the complex and diverse issues which arise on the international level," because its delegation was much smaller than that of the Soviet groups, and because its members " were not equipped to compete with the cultural and sports teams and exhibitions brought from the East." The authors say that "greater numbers of American students must become familiar with the foreign languages in wide use today, with the important contemporary political issues and with the character of the several non-western geographical areas of great political importance to Americans." They also ay that their xperience at Prague showed American tudents as " ill-equipped to meet trained C mmuni t in rough and tumbl d ebate."

"The People Act" is the name given to a radio series of 26 weeks duration, beginning in November, broadcast nationally by the Columbia Broadcasting System. Each week's program will be a tape-recorded story wherein the people involved will tell in their own words just how they solved a pressing local problem. This series of broadcasts will have the distinction of being the first such enterprise to â&#x20AC;˘ be undertaken in the TelevisionRadio Workshop created by the Ford Foundation as part of its gigantic program on behalf of world peace, democracy, economic welfare, education and scientific study. "The People Act" falls specifically into the category for adult education, financed by Ford Foundation money.

After four years of studies, campus activities. and sorority, twelve girls are graduating from Nu chapter. including Virginia Dean, Shirley DePorter. Shirley Rae Horton, Barbara Hanson, Shirley Marcus Hudson, Irene Jesser. Grace Kister, Erdeena Stolz, Martha Sweaney, Audrey Woodbury. Frances Wasinger. Patricia Whittaker Brown. Pledged when Nu was reactivated on campus, these twelve have been the backbone and important factors in building up Alpha Sigma Tau on the Colorado State College of Education campus. They leave an admirable record and truly big ideals which we undergraduates will strive to live up to. It is with heartfelt nostalgia and best wishes that we look up to those entering the ranks of alumnae.

The August issue of Th e Magazin e of Sigma Chi contained a timely article made up from the text of a speech delivered in the U. S. Senate on March 27, 1951 by Senator J. William Fulbright, Sigma Chi, on the subject of moral ·deterioration as ··a- threat to our democracy. One quotation : " I wonder · whether in recent years we have unwittingly come to accept the totalitarian concept that


the end justifies the mean , a concept which is fundamentally and completely antagonistic to a true domestic ociety. Democrac is I believe, more likely to be destroyed by the ·perversion of, or abandonment of, its true moral principles than by armed a ttack from Russia. The evil and in idiou materiali m of the Communists i a greater danger to u than their guns." ·

Alpha sential if, in our own SIOrority life, we are to work as a group, not as separate individuals. If each of us was to think back, perhaps just to last rushing season, we could all find occasions when the anger, spoken of by Mr. Jones, broke forth . When one of your sorority sisters disagreed with you on the merits of someone you were advocating as a rushee, how did you react? Now think a minute. Webster defines anger as a strong passion of emotion or displeasure, and usually antagonism, excited by a sense of injury or insult. If, when angered, we do experience extreme antagonism, let's think back to the Bible passage read during the Formal Pledge Cere~ony, and remember the quiet, unassummg woman described. Affection sin. and truth is our pass word not anger ' centy, dissension and falsehood. ' ,


";\; E. STANLEY JoNES states in his book, Abundant Living, "Anger is righteous, if it has in it grief on account of what is happening to others, and not a grudge on account of what is happening to one's self." How often have you felt sudden anger at someone and have not been able to put your finger on the cause of your anger? In your mind you attempt to rationalize it as something of great importance, when, in reality, it is romething petty and insignificant, such as peculiar mannerism or behavior habit. The ideals and creeds of Alpha Sigma Tau stress above all else, tolerance in our own everyday lives. To be tolerant of those about us, whose material possessions tend to differ from ours, whose actions and attitudes do not coincide with ours, whose ideas do not agree with the ones we hold as truths, is es-

IN the pledge group of 1951, the Alpha chapter gained six new members: Jonelle Anderson, Mary Brown, Janice Jensen, Ann Krupa, Lois Nutting, and Judy Shaw. These girls became full members of Alpha Sigma Tau at the formal initiation ceremony, held in McKenney . Hall on J anuary 12, and the chapter extends its sincerest welcome to them, and thanks for the many lovely pillows and unique paddles. The 3rd of D ecember, Gloria Wedge took over the office of president of the Alpha chapter. The former president, Harriet Robertson, resigned in order to join her husband who is serving with the armed forces. In the contest for the best float in the Homecoming Parade at Michigan State Normal College this year, Alpha's float received, and certainly deserved, second place. A large argyle sock was constructed from chicken wire and crepe paper, under the able guidance of Bunny D eLauder, and the slogan "Argyles'll Sock 'Em," helped put the idea across.

Central Michigan College has been chosen as the site for a film on teacher training, since Central is the most outstanding of teachers' colleges. J eanne Gleason Clarke has been chosen as one of the four students to star in the film . It is spring rushing time, and we are well on our way. Saturday. February 22, we had our first rushing tea. The theme of our tea was a circus. "Astie," our clown mascot, propped on a small ladder with balloons, was our center piece. We served cookies with clown faces and pink lemonade. Several stuffed animals and animal crackers were placed on each table. For name tags, we used clown faces made out of construction paper. Lollypops with green and yellow ribbons were given as favors. We were hostesses to fifty rushees. Wednesday, March 4, we have another rush party, which we call " Sleepy Tau Haven." The party is to take place at the home of Alice Wilcox, junior. The actives wear long nighties, and the rushees wear pajamas, and each one b rings a stuffed animal. A week later we have another party, and then voting takes place. At that time we will know who our new T aus will be.

An evening affair along with an afternoon tea at which two members modeled, was arranged. We are going to have an informal rush party on campus and a formal dinner off campus. On March 26, Alpha Sigma Tau will again enter Wayne University's Annual Panhellenic Sing. We plan to sing " To Our Fraternity" as our sorority feature and "Big Rock Candy Mountain" as our popular song choice. This year we tried omething new in the line of local service. Used Christmas cards were collected by our m embers, and sent to a cerebral palsy hospital. There, the e cards can be used by afllicted children, in a variety of art projects.

In January there was a "dee-licious" chili supper with the alums. The former pledges gave a graduation party for the January graduates. We hated to say goodbye to such wonderful actives. The graduates gave a pajama party for the actives. The new term saw Pat Seib elected assistant editor of the Collegian. Myra Schneider is the new president of the Shakespeare Club. In February the Pi's pin pledged Evelyn Buenemann. February saw the Pi's iceskating and ooh-those falls, but it was loads of fun . On March 28, Skit Nite will be presented by Pi. Skit Nite is an annual event, presented by Alpha at Harris for the entire campus to attend. It is one of the most popular events of the year. In April we are planning a bowling party and a picnic supper in the park. Also, we are practicing our scales for the Interfraternal Sing. In May the Pi's are going on a trip to the farm of the sister of Miss Murray, our cosponsor. We are anticipating a great deal of fun. Plans are being made for the summer also. The Pi's hope to have several swimming parties this summer. Also, we hope to spend a weekend at Pere Marquette State Park. The National Convention is in Chicago this year, and many of the Pi's are planning to attend. Here's hoping we see many of you there.- PEGGY STEWARD.

Madam Castros ~

BEGINNING on February 25, the first in a series of rush parties was held on the Longwood College campus. With the theme of "A Carnival," the Zeta Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau got off to an excellent start. The door of the chapter room was gaily decorated in green and yellow crepe paper, green and yellow hoops with the words " A.S.T . Carnival" written on them. With each and every knock on the door by one of the seventeen rushees, Nancy Purdum who was portraying the part of a clown, bounded to answer the knock. Nancy took the guests' shoes, as soon as they were inside. (These had to be won before they could leave.) I<' rom there on, . our president, who was the barker, conducted them around to the big attractions. Beforehand, the rushees had been given pennies, with which to buy refreshments, and take part in the various games. In one corner was "Madam Castros" who told their fortunes, either by the use of a crystal ball or tea leaves. In another corner was a device constructed so that the rushees could pitch pennies and win their shoes back. Meanwhile, the Alpha Sigma Tau actives were thoroughly enjoying themselves, too. Many of them were attired in short, little-girl dresses, skirts, etc. They wandered about the room and called the ru hee attention to the cage of ferociou animal .

The area where the food was sold was attractively and artistically arranged, to represent the typical carnival booth. A curtain of green and yellow crepe paper streamers hung from the draperies. The girls, who were selling (supposedly), wore dainty little waitress h a ts and aprons, also in green and yellow. The food consisted of cups of pink lemonade, can.died apples on sticks, and cookies in the shape of circus animals. We had a few extra specials, too. Kitty Hamlet gave a little song and dance number, " College Rhythm"; Lou 'Beavers and Pat Dannally, a version of "Merry-Go-Round" ; and Lou also sang a cute little song, " I've Lost My Dog." The second day of rushing, the Alpha Sigma Taus demonstrated what was almost the opposite side. This time they were the sophisticated girls to go with their next theme, "A Night Club." Again the food and decorations went with this theme. The third rush party was a regular tea

and was quite restful, after the strenuous attempts of the fi rst two. All these efforts, however, brought grand resul ts. The Alpha Sigma Taus got fo urteen of the very finest girls.- NANCY LEE Wooo.

Chi j J oyal 5e//owj o/ lhe Road THE Grand Order of Loyal Fellows of the Road or briefly, the Hoboes, held their annual convention in the recrea tion room of Miller Hall, Tuesday, November 13, 1951. The hosts for this convention were the m embers of Chi Chapter ; the honored hobo guests were rushees. The room was decora ted to resemble the retrea t for all hoboes, the forest. Logs were conveniently placed for seating, ivy entwined the posts, trees grew profusely around the walls, and a small campfire was the center of the activities. King of the hoboes, Phyllis Stuckey, presided over the convention. In order to become a member of the Grand Order each girl had to promise never to work, never buy food , take no more than two bath a year and n ver shave. In order to prove that they were all good ;t

hoboes, the girls had to go ~n a hobo hunt. Some of the articles for which they had to beg were: a left-handed monk.ey wrench, a cross-eyed darning needle, a ch1cken feather, an empty gun shell. All girls pr~ved to be fine hoboes, by bringing in everything on the list. The next thing to be begged for was food. The hoboes did a great job of begging for thi a nd came up with hot dogs and cocoa. While the group was sitting around the campfire eating, Hobo Marian Evans told a bout the greedy old woman who swallowed a fly. Hobo Ora Tabler gave a good example of fate awaiting hoboes who marry, when she told of Socrates Snooks. The en tire group participated in a dres ing relay and concluded the evening by singing some typical hobo song . Three members of Chi Chapter have been cho en to be listed in " ho' s Who in American College and Universities." The honored girl are: Eleanor J ack on, a member of the Home Economic Club, the Girls' Chorus, and an officer of Alpha Sigma Tau. She i majoring in Home Economic and Secondary Education. Upon graduation in June she plan to teach . M ary Short i a member of the Future T eachers of America, pre ident of K appa Delta Pi honorary fraternity, and an active mem ber of Alpha Sigma T au . Goldie J ean Smith is majoring in Commerce and Secondary Education. She is a member of the College Choir, active in sorority work, and secretary to the president of the college. Chi Chapter pledged and initiated two girls during the first emester of the year. The new member are Julia Hovermale, Berkeley Springs, West Virginia; and Charlene Flick, M artinsburg, W est Virginia. Chi Chapter sent three representatives to the fourth regional convention, which was h eld O ctober 12-14 at Madison College, Harrisonburg, Virginia. The representative were M argaret Horner, Miriam Wie t, and Susan Barrick, all of M artin burg, W e t Virginia.-MARIAN EvANS.

;t. WHAT a lot of fun we have had, and are

having, giving our Lincoln Hou e the "ne' look." W e started in the living room with new curtain , then our amateur am tre e went to work and did a profe ional j b n orne dark gre n alance to go with th m.


THE ANCHOR At the same time, new curtains of green and white checked gingham were made for the kitchen. In the kitchen our AST girls were busy with paint brushes and yellow paint. The finished kitchen is really our pride, and plans are under way for buying new living room furniture. Just one week after we finished all this, we were hostesses for the regional convention of Alpha Sigma T au. Again a lot of work was required from everyone; however, once the convention started, everyone forgot how tired she might have been, and immediately caught the spirit of the inspiring m eetings. Saturday night, after a wonderful banquet, we had an informal get-together a t Lincoln H ouse. Honestly, the house nearly rocked on its foundations. With our rush party just five days after the convention, our 21 m embers had to really fly around, to get ready for it. When the big night arrived, one could hardly recognize the house. Carnival decora tions inside and out left no doubt as to the theme of our party. The game rooms, fortune telling booth, and refreshment stand would have been a credit to any carnival, to say nothing of the prize concessions h>ooth, where the sock dolls, which we had so much fun making, were among the most popular prizes. Certainly no one was without a tear when, in the candlelight, we closed our party, by singing our Sweetheart Song to the rushees, and by tying green and yellow ribbons around their fingers, so that they wouldn't forget Alpha Sigma Tau. Then that final day of rushing came, with lots of alumnae present to h elp us ch eer as we took in our twenty-seven wonderful new pledges. Founders' day, a week la ter, found members at the annual banquet, which was a huge success. Our pledges immedia tely caught the spirit of our "House Beautiful" movement and showed their talent by redoing our ba throom upstairs. Dorothy Shepard, one of our sop~omores, represented 路M adison College as a prmcess at the Engineer's Ball at Virginia Polytechnic Institute in November. December found the Alpha Sigma T aus busy on decorations for the Panhelleni.c Christmas dance. Our own Fran Moseley IS chairman of Panhellenic this year, and were we proud of h er as she led the figure. For our Christmas project we sent a

basket through the welfare department to a family in town. Psi Chapter h ad its own special Christmas party just before the holid ays. It was a pajama party after the Saturday night movie. Quite a few of us slept on the living room floor that night- if indeed anyone slept! E xams slowed us down almost as soon as we got back from Christmas, but the new semester found us with new spirit and new resolutions, although we were missing two of our beloved sisters. W e were proud to find ten of our members among those of the dean's list for first semester. Also three of our juniors were tapped for Kappa Delta Pi honora ry educational society. Incidentally, Catherine Cover, a Psi Chapter senior, is pres ident of K a ppa D elta Pi thi year. Catherine is also featured in this year' Who' Who. Plans are under way for spring ru hing, March 8, and homecoming, April 25 . We are also planning to send delegates to the National Convention next urnmer.

This year, we are spending the weeken d of M ay 17 (Our local F ounder' D ay ) at College camp. Without our wonderful pre ident Emil Scott, much of our succe s might h a e been unknown. Emily, a senior from Salem irginia, is active in many chool oraanizations including K appa D elta Pi, German Club



and Westminister Foundation. She was our Top Tau last year and won the Alumnae Award for the highest scholarship. Credit for our high spirit is also due to this year's new Yankee housemother, Eleanor Matthews, whose hot coffee and moral support have kept us going. -Lucv LEE GROVE.

Pat Kinsella. Homecoming Queen ~ " SHoWBOAT" was the theme for the Minot State T eachers College Homecoming. Pat Kinsella, the Alpha Sigma Tau candidate, was chosen by the student body to reign as Homecoming Queen. Pat is 5 feet 2 inches tall, has blue eyes, and is a brownette. Pat is known for her friendly smile and congenial personality. Pat, who is majoring in Physical Education, is a m ember of the Concert Choir and is one of our Panhellenic representatives for this year. Our winter rush tea was held at the home of Miss Louise R eish us. W e were happy to pledge twelve girls this quarter. Pledge captain is H elen Anderson.

Many honors have been bestowed upon us, both as a chapter and as individuals. W e were very happy to learn of our full membership into N .P.C. and are justly proud to be a part of such a wonderful organization. Our sponsor, Miss. Evelyn Luecking, an active member of P1 Chapter, has recently been elected as our new district president. Although it is a big position for her to fill , we are confident she will do all in her power to carry on the work of h er predecessor. Congratulations Miss Luecking! We wish Mrs. Maher all the luck and success in the future ! Our active president, Joanne Tuerffs, was recently elected editor of the Ball State News, our weekly campus publication. Also we were honored to have two of our m embers, Betty Jo Dirks and Joanne Tuerffs, listed in Who's Who Among Students in Colleges and Universities. One of our new pledges, Marilyn Rust, was chosen for the cast of Mrs. Moonlight, a dramatic produc-


tion, given by Spotlight Theater. Mary Ann Fueur and Wanda Stephens were recently pledged to Sigma Alpha Iota, honorary music fraternity. Also Shirley H emphill and Gerry Mongeon pledged K appa Delta Pi, an educa tion honorary. On January 24, we participated in the K appa Sigma K appa V ariety show. We presented a skit entitled "Tau Toyland," and won first prize. To help swell our treasu ry, we again took on the tasks of a chili upper and record dance. Both were well attended and proved to be profitable proj ects. During the month of February we were entertained at a party given by the pledge class. The invita tions took on the form of question ma rks, and everyone came dressed as her "suppressed desire." This year, as in previous years, we entered a volleyball team in the Inter-Sorority tourn ey. W e were the second sorority to olace, which isn't too bad-all things considered.

us this year. Joan Luckenbill, our president, was first attendant to the queen. The theme for our float, "Argyles'll Sock 'Em," was carried out by four girls knitting two huge argyle socks. We became almost fond of the skunk we made, to carry out the idea of "Skunk Michigan" for our house decoration. We have had two very interesting program meetings this year.

The re~ignation of Mrs. Frank K ersey (Kathenne Hofsteter) as recording secretary was accepted with regret. Miss Thelma Wilson was elected to the office, after resigning as chapter chaplain, and Mrs. James Warden was elected as new chaplain. Our treasurer Miss Virginia Bailey, reported that the recent rumm~ge sale, held by tlie group, was a financial success. Mrs. William Richardson (Eileen Godsey) told of the Founders' Day banquet held in Athens on November 3. She said tha t several members of our alumnae chapter were present for the occasion. The Bluefield group presented a monetary gift to the Omicron Chapter, hostess for the banquet, to be put in a "house fund." A sc~olarship award was also given to Miss A.hce Ferrell of Athens, for maintaining the highest scholastic average in the active chapter last year. A bridge and canasta party followed the meeting, with prizes being awarded to Miss Calfee, high bridge; and Miss Nancy Ruddell, high canasta. At the D ecember meeting, members of the chapter brought gifts for a needy child, selected by the social service committee, instead of exchanging gifts among themselves. Christma colors of red and green were combined in the color scheme, and the refreshments also carried out the Christmas motif. Mrs. Preston Hamilton won first prize for th.e most attractively wrapped package. 'Mrs. Richardson was hostess to the group with Thelma Wilson as co-hostess. ' The group enjoyed a "pot-lu k" supper in January. Gue ts were the members' hus-

THE ANCHOR nor Mason's home, tastefully decorated for the ~olidays, and delicious food, put us in the nght mood for a pleasant evening. We all had more holiday fun at our annual Christmas breakfast, under the capable leadership of Margery Milius. Eunice Pundt entertained in January, when we also enjoyed Catherine Smith's review of "A Woman in the Window." Lucille Steen, our district president, opened her home for our February dessert meeting. Records added to the pleasure of the evening following the business session.-MRs. E. boNALo ADAMS.

;\; DESPITE losing some fine members this year and gaining none, we have still had some very interesting programs and activities. Two of our programs were informative as well as interesting, when Jeannette Hale told us of new methods of teaching, and Doris Will explained the set-up of her Church library, of which she is librarian. Emma 'Mae Matthews is now living at 404 Kelsall Ave., St. Simons Island, Ga., and her mailing address is c/ o Eastern Air Lines, Brunswick, Ga. We'll miss her. Then Winifred Newman, one of the busiest career women in this area, has asked to be put on the inactive list, due to her inability to attend meetings. She was an enthusiastic booster nevertheless, and we would refuse her wish, if we could. We tried our first bake sale in February. Having only about eight girls participating, we still did amazingly well. We want to try it again this year, as it certainly swelled our bank account. Doris Will was the spark behind this one. Instead of a Christmas party with our husbands, we had a Valentine party at Jean and Marion Bailey's. With our love for gab, games, music, and a generous amount of refreshments, we all had lots of fun . We brought baby clothes and good used clothes, for a box for Pine Mountain, to our February meeting. Jeannette Hale is also going to help us make favors for a school room of underprivileged children for Easter. We haven't decided just what it will be yet, but something that will delight each child. A group of us hope to drive down to


Huntington, to visit the new house in M arch, to give a personal invitation to our April luncheon at Wren's Nest, and to see what they need that we might supply. Chit Chat: Mary Inez Miller is making her husband do a bit more baby-sitting with their two youngsters, so she can go to Morris H arvey College in Charleston twice a week.

THE Princeton-Athens Alumnae Chapter has had a very successful first year. Enthusiasm has run high, and we feel that this is only the beginning of better years to come. A joint meeting with the Bluefield Alumnae was held in O ctober at the home of Mrs. Wand a Bradley. The two main topics for discussion were the District m eeting in Harrisonburg and the gift for the Omicron girls at the Founders' Day Banquet. After the business meeting, the girls of the two chapters had a pleasant time renewing old and valu ed friendships. The annual Founders' Day Banquet was held at the Athens Baptist Church. As these banquets are always a source of inspiration, this one was no exception. The alumnae groups of this area took great pride in being able to start a Home Fund for the Omicron Collegiate Chapter. Our November meeting was held at the beautiful new home of Mrs. Lucille W athall. This was strictly a business meeting, at which our plans were made for our Christmas project. Each year, instead of exchanging gifts among ourselves at Christmas, we find that we get a greater joy out of helping some needy family. At our Christmas party. held at the very festively decorated home of J ean Richards, we all broug-ht our gifts and had a gay time of wrapping them . Among the confusion of paper, seals, . and ribbon, Polly Mash came up with a beautifully wrapped present, which won her first prize. After our business meeting in January, Lucille Wathall very ably demonstrated the art of raffia m aking. She explained the many and various uses of raffia, which proved to be of wide interest to all. F ebruary was our month for a strictly social meeting. The home of Mrs. Hazel Mingo was filled with the laughing and chatting of a canasta-playing crowd.- SARAH Jo BROO KS.

WE, of the Richmond-Petersburg Alumnae Cha pter, celebrated Founder's Day with a wonderful banquet at Hotel Rueger, noted for its southern cooking. Afterwards an interesting program was held in the horne of Sally V aughan. The "Streetman Street Man" from a local radio station interviewed and questioned several members. Our hostess, Sally V aughan, won the orchid for giving the correct answers. The program was recorded and broadcasted at a later date. At Christmas we sent gifts to the Children's ward of a local hospital. Later we also sent much needed diapers to the hospital to be used in the Charity Children's W ard . We recently received an invitation to join the City Panhellenic which is being formed in Richmond. At our F ebruary meeting we were glad to have as our guest, Ann R obinson Berry, who has returned to Virginia to live with her parents while her husband is serving overseas. We' re looking forward to a steak dinner which will precede our M arch meeting. Also on our spring calendar will be a " fish fry" which our dates and husbands may attend. Jucl y K ing is now completing plans for th is, which will be our final get- together unt1l next Fall.

M ANY of the St. Louis Alumnae girls attended the District M eeting at Emporia. Our Founders' D ay Banquet, held at M edart's in St. L ouis, was a lovely occasion. We were, as always, inspired by the beautiful candle-lighting ceremony. Thanks to the girls who worked so hard to make it a huge success. The Christmas holiday season started off with a grand party, given b our acti e chapter . This was followed by an open house a t our central offi e and a card par ty a t H emplem an's rathskellar. Our h liwith h ili day events arne to a clo

THE ANCHOR supper at the home of Alice Vit. W e were all glad to see our out-of-town girls home for the holidays. We have had two supper meetings so far this winter; given to raise money for the Expansion Fund. We were delighted to welcome four n ew members to our alumnae group: Phyllis Blankenship, Clara Fricke, Mary Lou Fondren and Rosalie W ones. Our annual Washington's Birthday luncheon was held at the new Montclair Apartments. The luncheon, followed by an afternoon of cards, was thoroughly enjoyed by all. A reception will be held on March 11 to welcome Miss Dorothy Nace, who will show us slides of our own Pine Mountain Settlement SchooL- CHARLOTTE BoEHM.

;\. THE Shepherdstown Alumnae Chapter celebrated Founders' Day with a covered dish meal at the home of Mrs. Joseph Cepelka. Charles Town, W. Va., with m embers and their husbands and patronesses present. The menu consisted of roast chic~颅 en, gravy, mashed potatoes, peas, macarom, slaw, pickles, salads, home made rolls, coffee ice cream and a large decorated cake, baked by Mi~s Mabel Chapman, chapter president. The evening was spent in a n old-fashioned get-together. The annual Christmas party was at the home of Mrs. Roscoe Payne, Charles Town, at which time members and patronesses spent the evening in singing the carols. In .January we .met with Miss Sarah Cree, Shepherdstown, W. Va. We are planning to go to the home of Miss Eileen Whisner, Sharpsburg, Md., for our next meeting, February 28. In March we are planning to have a silk party which we all are looking forward to with great enthusiasm.-GENEVIEVE PITZER.

SprinCJfie/d j /lrthda~ ;\. SPRINGFIELD, Missouri, Alumnae shared honors with Mr. Lincoln on February 12, because it was our birthday, too. After many


years as an enthu siastic and activ Alumna Club, w were harter d on F bruary 12, 1951. Our tip to oth r clubs is, " Go N ationa!" ; the exp ri nee is most gratifying. The February meeting at Georgia nna Barnaby's was increasingly significant, because Rosemary Ford, presid nt, conduct d initiation services for three girls: Maureta Darr, Alpha D elta '51; Margaret Millspaugh, Aloha Delta '51; and Ann Diem Kivett, Alpha D elta '51. The good year 1951-52 began for us when we bought, prepared, and served, the food for the "Tau Ranch Party," the coli giate's first rush event of the season. (They got 11 priceless pledges!) The 50 girls who came to the Alum Homecoming luncheon at the K entwood Arms Hotel on November 3, "remembered when" all through lunch, th e football game, and while dancing to "Neighbor's" ba nd at the Homecoming dance. In O ctober, three alums attended the District Meeting at Emporia, K a n., along with four collegiates. W e (Donna Klein, Ju anita Parker and Nyda Sebring) found the meeting inspirational ... and good fun . Iota's hospitality was something to remember long . . . and with pleasure. The Christmas buffet supper at Ju anita Parker's country place wa traditionally gorgeous ... and gorge-us! The SMS College Panhellenic Workshop on Mar. 14 and 15, which many of us attended, brought us close to collegiates, alums, sponsors, and na tion al offi ers of all the Springfield sororities. From thi association we gained much new " na tional awareness." H aopy summer vacation to you all and let' s keep close to our collegiate next year . . . they'll be alums one day.- NYDA SEBRING.

Mary Jane (Mrs. S. L.) Howard, War; Historian, Edith (Mrs. Amoth) Monk, Tazewell, Va. The September meeting, a regular business meeting, was held at the home of Lil Buckberry, War. The final plans for the year were completed. A "Dutch Luncheon" was enjoyed by the group at the Tazewell Hotel, in October, with Edith Monk and M ellie Mustard as hostesses. In November, Margaret 'M artin entertained the group with a canasta party at her home in Berwind. Lallah Waite and children , Carol and Jimmy, entertained the group and the "Alpha Sigma Children" at the Caretta Library for the Annual Christmas Party. Everyone enjoyed having the children honored this year. Gifts were exchanged by both m embers and children. A "Get-Together" was the fea ture of our January meeting, at the home of Ruth (Mrs. Robert) Dotson, War. The February meeting was a business session held in the Teacher's Lounge of Big Creek high school, War, W. Va. We are all looking forward to our coming Mother's Day T ea.-MARY JANE How-

dria, with our Founder's Day ceremony which followed a delicious meal? Jane Fox, soon followed by .Marie Garber, came into the classification of "newlyweds." W e are fortunate indeed that both couples are living in nearby Alexandria. Full of the spirit of sharing and giving at Christmas time we packed a box of crayons and coloring books for the children at Pine Mountain. In J anuary we sent a huge box of clothing to the settlement. Our White Elephant sale recently was a great su ccess, as Margaret Bowers, our lively auctioneer, spurred us on to dig deeply into our pocketbook . The Wa hington, D . C., Panhellenic, of which we are a member, has provided many activities in which we participate. In F ebruary. Dorothy Ga tes and M ed a Ray Sewell a ttended a tea given by the D elta Zetas. In March, one Saturday h as been set aside for a fashion show, followed by an afternoon of bridge. Yes, we are lending a helping h a nd, bidding farewells to some old acquaintances and a cheery " hello" to n ew ones, and strengthening the friendships in our group, as we work a nd play together.- Jo ANNE CRITZER.


Wajhinfjlon) ::b. C j J arewefg & fief/oj ~ O u R Washington, D. C., Alpha Sigma Tau Alumnae really have been active these past few months, a nd we anticipate many wonderful activities in the months to come. No ooner had our meetings re umed in the fall than M eda Ray Sewell, M adeline J enkins, Dorothy Ga tes, Betty Lipp , and K a thleen K elechner were journeying to H arrisonburgh, V a ., for the District M eeting on the Madison College campus. They reported on the varied a nd numerous activities other chapters. were undertaking and how cha rming and fri endly our officers and s.i ters are. Then we bade far well to M adeline J enkins, who was tra n ferred to San Antonio, T x., to continue her career with the U . S. Government.

As a na tive St. Louisan, I find m yself switching allegiance to my adopted home - W ichita, which h as grown from a "cow town" to a thriving metropolis within a compara tively short time. M o t of Wichita' major development have occurred during the past six years, and this growth h as brought about a swift ch ange in its "facial" appearan ce. F or example, its changing face includes an increase of one-third in quare-mile area during tha t period. The downtown area ha undergone orne $15,000,000 in face lifting including the addition of a number of modern building . Eighteen thou a nd hou inu unit have been added . Thi i roughly a fourth of all the hou ing unit in the city. The estimated population of Wichita in 1951 wa 201,000 and it i till zoominu. The cit ' population ha grown 88 p r nt the pa t 20 ears, and all but thr per ent of thi incr a e ha o urred sin 19-l-0.

THE ANCHOR With this rapid expansion comes of course numerous problems- traffic incre~se crim~ . ' govmcrease, and so on, but an efficient city ernment has taken these problems in it stride. . Eve~ th~ugh. Wichita is experiencing growmg pams, 1t stii~ has its small-town, friendly a~mosphere, wh1ch we, coming from a big c1ty, find delightful. One of its biggest selling points for me is that all heating is done with na tural gas; it's so clean!- MADOLYN NoLLER.

UA/hamjporl Cnterlainj mrj. Steen ;\, WE enjoyed pictures of Mrs. Robert Smink's trip through the west. The pictures were in color and very realistic. In D ecember we held a Christmas Party at the home of Mrs. Woodrow Wolfe. Each member took a gift, to be given to the children at the Lycoming Nur ery. Greetings were read from Alpha Sigma Tau Collegiate Alumnae Chapters . A film strip, games, and carols completed the picture. Our chapter had a very pleasant visit from Mrs. Joseph Steen, Eastern District President, and Mrs. Franklyn M cilvaine, of Zeta Chapter a t Lock H aven Sta te T eachers College. Mrs. Steen reviewed the work of the sorority in the light of national affiliation and told of the present trends. She also gave an interesting account of her recent trip to the National Panhellenic Conference at Williamsburg, V a . A disc ussion of philanthropic proj ects, supported by Alpha Sigma T au's social service program, was h eld and a preview of the National Convention to be h eld in Chicago in Augu t was given. A very successful benefit card party was held in February a t the home of Mrs. F. John Tietbohl, II. Everyone h ad a wonderful time. W e are now looking forward to our Spring Music Appreciation in April. In May there will be a dinner party, followed by the installation of officers.- CHARLENE SoLT BLANCHARD.


Yrji/anli-_Ann _Arbor Orfjanizej ;\, IN the winter of 1950, Mrs. Rolland Bat s and the Alpha hapter of Alpha Sigma T au planned a Sunday afternoon tea, a nd invited all of the known alumn a . At the tea the alumnae were small in number, but the few of us there planned a future meeting. At our next meeting, in a hom , we added some new faces. The girls that were a t tha t meeting, along with the ones tha t have graduated from college since th a t time, started getting together once a month. Our p urpose a t that time was to get better acquainted with each other. W e had picnic with the seniors, went to a play, and had social evenings in each other's homes. Then this last fall , Mrs. Joyce Riehl and Mrs. Arlene Johnson came from the Port Huron alumnae chapter and gave us many ideas about reinstating our ch apter. F irst of all, we got a list of all the al um nae in this part of the state. W e mimeographed a list for each girl whom we were contacting, so th at she would know who was in this area. Along with this list, a letter was ent to each person telling her the purpo e of the ch apter. We also enclo ed a card, which she wa to return tating her interest or noninterest in the chapter. At our J a nuary meeting, we h ad a good group in attendance and it really seemed good to see all tho e new face. We elected officers, too. They are: M iss Sheil a Stefanac, president; Mr . Virginia Sheets, secretary; and Mi Pauline Bentley trea urer. At our February meeting we added more new girls a nd concentrated on getting better acquainted . On M arch 19, at Mrs. Alice Spencer's, we are hoping Mis Luecking, Pi chapter, and now ad i er for Alpha Alpha a t Ball Sta te, Muncie, Ind. wi ll be with u for initiation. Our plan for future meetings include a pot luck ocial service, and entertainment for the gradu ating seniors. W e are h oping tha t we can attend the convention in Chicago in August. - ALVIRA CRAWFORD SEVERT.
