~ WH EN Miss Lucy Morgan asked me m Finland 1949, if I would be interested to come for one school year to her school in North Ca rolina, I could not believe tha t it is a wonderful fact now. Tra nsporta tion expenses from Finl and to Penl and are quite an effort for a priva te citizen to pay, a nd without encouraging letters from Miss M orga n I several times would have been without any hope. Since some good friends in Finla nd gave both m oral a nd m a teri al support, not to give up, Ju ly 29, 1952, I left H elsinki a nd a rrived by pl ane a t Internationa l airport in N ew York, July 30. M y friends told m e, when they were to ee me off a t the airport, tha t if you have one good fri end in America, you don't need to worry. You a re sent forwa rd through all the country like a p a rcel post from one friend to anothe r. From the first minutes on, I could rea lize tha t it is a fact. Mis. Lucy's friend , Mr . Brewington, was to mee t me in New York, a nothe r fri end , Miss Douglas, in Ashevill , a nd o the wild but skillful bus dri ver took m e up to Spruce Pine. Mis

Lucy herself was waiting there with her car. If you h ave driven in som ebody's car up the mountain road , you know tha t the driver knows her job. Before I h ad realized, tha t from now on the every day la nguage is going to be English, and everybod y is going to greet me in English, say some nice words to m e in the same la nguage, I was taken in the middle of the Penla nd School group, which was having afternoon tea . I looked a round a t the exhibit of the first summer se sion. M y friend, Dick, who h ad spent a year before in these ection of the USA h ad written on a n envelope to m e: " T ake it . ea y." Before long I h ad to r ead it again a nd again, a nd react according to that rule for the clima te and the altitude, m aybe the long trip in a couple of day m ade m e colla pse for two weeks, before I could tart working again.

The best principle in teaching crafts might be the idea th a t every tudent is guid d to ma ke a plan and de ign of her own . Every teacher i not able to teach thi s creative way. It is simpler to tell the student wh at to do than to make them , as different as they are, rea lize th a t experiments have to be made, and why. Thi idea of creative teaching is one of the most enjoyable things at the Penla nd School. In pottery especia lly thi year the students have enj oyed the in piring influence of preColumbi an Indi an civilization . The pottery teacher, Miss Adelaide Beck, has worked in Panama as a n archeologist, and ha brought her personality and co llection of these old ceramics to Penl and . It ha 路 been the first rea l contac t with the original culture of Am erica to me. It h as inspired me to study more about pottery. It has reassured me to see tha t a tru art, the m ain lin es in it, is a lways the sa me through the ages. It is one road of comp le te understanding between diffe rent races, di ffe rent na tionaliti es a nd peoples. Penland students are a group of people from all the different parts of the U SA,

and from difl' r ' nt co untri es over the world. H re hand in ha nd , toge th r in work and 1 lay, a good und rsta nding is rca t d b twee n di ffe rent living worlds.

;\; SINCE I have been working in radio, countless numbers of my friends have dashed up to me, pummeled me on the shoulder, and excla imed, " Ohhhhh, aren' t you the lucky one! RADIO AND TELEVISIO ! It must be so romantic and GLAMOROUS! " W ell, maybe they' re right. I've been working in radio since I left Washington Sta te College in 1943. Certain ly I must have thought it was glamorous then, becau e I quit school the very instant a job was offered to me in the continuity department of a radio station in Sea ttle. After almost ten 路 years of working in, around, with, for, and yes I even think under radio, it doesn't seem at all glamorous to me. Take a look at your dictionary. " Glamour: 1, magic ; 2, a spell or charm." Let's start from the beginning. " M agic." All right! There you have me. I have never understood the magic of beams, cycles, primary areas, oscillators, and the like. You simply flip on a switch, and zippo, you have invited an unseen guest into your home. M agic ? Yes, I guess so. Now the dictionary again. "2. spell." Fra nkly, I have never been able to spell worth a hoot. Spelling is the bane of my ex istence. (Editor, please note and correct any misspelled word . Thank you. ) And I'm eve r gra teful for M ark T wain's remark, which I have paraphrased because I don't remember it exactly. " I don' t give a d arn for anyone who can pell a word in only one way." So much for pells and spelling. L t's look at number three, the third definition for the word glamour. "Charm ." Which lead me gracefully to the subject of the man for whom I work. One of the mo t charm ing men I've ever known i the Paymast r of Ceremonic of D ouble or Nothing, Walt r O'Kee.fe. I am fortun ate in being

the as istant producer of thi show from H ollywood . Six yea r ago this F ebruary, I arrived in H ollywood with a radio background and no job. I had decided to get out of radio and into some new field of endeavor. By June of the arne year I was begging for a job in radio, any job ju t to get back in. I was hired as a " cript girl" on the new ver ion of radio' olde t quiz game, D ouble or Not hing. The Campbell Soup people were going to try omething different in daytime radio. H aving a lot of faith in the average American hou ewife they believed that he would rather li ten to omething informative, humorous, enlightening, and certainly entertaining rather than the " oap opera ."

If you know the show, Double or Nothin g, you know that Wa lter O'Keefe is one of the fastest, mo t versa tile of all the ad-lib artists in show business. We do five radio hows a week for fifty-two weeks a year, a nd on every program W alter has come up with some new way of saying "something," some new ad-lib gag, some " off-bea t" remark.

I rem ember a young M arine not long ago. Walter was talking to him and asked him how h e h a ppened to join the Marine Corps. The young man replied tha t he had gone to a movie, had seen that thrilling picture about Marin life, "The Halls of Montezuma," and just couldn't re ist the call of th e Marine after that.

;\; ONcE, the men and women of this new Nation were willing to pledge " their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor" for liberty and freedom. This task they have handed down to us a nd succeeding generations. America is different from any other Nation on earth! H ave we no longer a liberty to preserve, a faith to defend, or a vision to inspire? We believe tha t thoughtful people have not forgotten that ours is a R epublic under God. Attention has been focused the past few months on the release of the new revised standard version of the Holy Bible and on display a t the Library of Congress in Washington, D. C., h as been the Gutenberg Bible, the first book printed in the W estern. World five centuries ago. In three thousand communities meetings were held in October, 1952, to honor the Bible, some say the most widely read book in the world with translations in 2000 languages and dialects.

E quality and Freedom L inked The pa triots of America in 1776 wrote, " We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are crea ted equal, that they are endowed by their Creator wi th certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of H appiness." Richard L . Eva n , producer, writer and the "voice" on a Sunday R adio Program featuring the Salt L ake City Tabernacle Choir and Organ, has been quoted by the Foundation of Economic Education on the subject of equality a it rela tes to Freedom. H e says: " Wha t is the m eaning of equality as appli ed to men ? Does it mean that all men should be alike? D oes it mean that all men shall be leveled arbitrarily to a common plane ? Does it mean that those who have endowments beyond the average h all be restrained from making a better place for themselves and for others? Does it mean that those who are content wi th idlenes and indolence shall be lifted artificially to an estate beyond wha t they deserve or could enjoy? Surely it does not- and can not-mean any of these things. For if it did, there would be no reward for the man who looks beyond the present. " There must be equality, yes: equ ality in the right to voice our view ; equality in the right to wor hip according to the dicta tes of conscience; equality before the law 路 equality a t the ballot box 路 equality in the right to work without paying tribute to anyon e for the privilige-an equality not ircumvented by political pressure, not denied to minorit group not withheld from the humble the friendle , or the need - but not that warped

Where Did Th e Words Come From? A student of Lib erty~路might find an interesting rela tionship among Fraternity documents and others. Most Fraternity rituals and ceremonies are based on the philosophies of the Ancients, the Bible and the D eclaration of Independence. The ritualistic work of each group differs and represents a closely guarded secret of the membership. The fact tha t the ceremonies remain secret throughout the lives of thousands of adult m embers indicates to some extent the respect in which they are held. Fraternities can take pride in the fact that a Bible is part of all Fra ternity paraphernalia and tha t college members have been encouraged to use it in their devotions. The influence of the Bible is plainly evident in

THE ANCHOR a nd mi taken 'equa lity' wh ich would push down the able and push up the indolent; not the kind of 'equality' tha t would retard willing men to the pace of the unwilling, or that puts unsteady props beneath back liders; not that 'equality' which 路 would reward them who 'toil not, neither do they spin' . . . "And so, to those who would like to eliminate differences among men, it would be said that if it were possible to do so, progress would cease. Equality ca nnot therefore mea n to bring all men low. It must mean oppor-

13

tunity for each man to rise to those h ights to which his ncrgies and abilities wi ll tak him-'and a ll ow all men the same privil ge' - to the end that progress m ay continue, and that thereby a ll will find ben fit. Equality wh ich means less than this is not equ a lity at all- it i slavery."

Acquired in 1930 by an Act of Congress. the Gutenberg Bible had for live centuries previous been in the possession of monks of the Benedictine Order in the monasteries of Austria. The handsome case in which the Bible is displayed is modeled after one designed by Michelangelo. The printing of this Bible ranks as one of the landmarks in the history of civilization and was a great forward step in the emancipation of the human mind.

M o t ou tsid -rs, I believe, feel th a t we arc a group with sp cia! adva ntages; more knowledge of the niceties of life, than th average coll ege gir l. As a na tural corroll ary, I believe we hould show a grea ter degree of cha rity, kindline s, friendliness, woman liness. Ba ica lly, the opposition to sororities is based on the ympa thy given to the numbers of girl who are not chosen to be sorority members. If we think in terms of the ou tsider, w perh aps will pl ace a little les emphasis on Sorority Week on fl aunting our banners, bl azers, and colors.

We were lucky because everyone stayed in good health. The first evening we had a shower for the seven engaged T aus. Each girl was presented with a piece of Revere ware. There was little time for sleeping, but much time for talking, singing, and eating. We were a happy, but tired group of girls at the close of our week end. All of our engaged girls were married this summer. They were Marcia McQuire, Jean Rothlesburger, Donna Dole, Ann Unjian, J erry Jones, Joyce Lattin, and Marilyn Boughfman. Seven Betas attended the N ational Convention in Chicago this summer. They were J ean Gleason Clark, J eannie Martin, Pat Plowman, Ruth Hamlin, Miriam Fuhrman and two alumni members, Flossie Slade and Natalie Haglund.

The spectators found the crowning of the "Kapper" Sweetheart, D ennis Willard, and the "Flasher" Sweetheart, Ja k Williams, also highly entertaining. The "Flashers" were constantly approached by a suspicious looking character who has since become a candidate for Powder Girl of 1953. "Josephine" was faithful to her job of spraying the players with perfume and dusting their shiny noses with powder. All good things must end, however, as did this game between the Pi K appa Sigma "Kappers" and the Alpha Sigma T au "Flashers." The "ladies" staggered from the field with skinned knees, bruises and minus a few fingernails, but with high spirits. They left with promises to return next year to the Powder Puff Bowl.

party was entertained at a reception held at Lincoln House. The house was decorated with spring flowers. The guests were met at the door by the president, Emily Scott and the receiving line was made up of members of the bridal party. Our sponsors, Miss Helen Frank and Dr. Mary Latimer, presided at the punch bowl. The bride received a set of individual serving trays and a tossed salad bowl. Last semester's rushing brought six new members into our group. They were R ebecca Dixon from Kilmarnock, Virginia; Nancy Earles from Danville, Virginia ; Gilda Hinman from Parksley, Virginia ; M ary M . L ear from Cumberland, Maryland; Ramona Riley from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and N ancy Shroyer from Crozet, Virginia. Thi group proved to be a very active one. One of their first projects was the packing of a very nice box for the Pine Mountain Settlement School. To celebrate our local Founders' Day we spent the week end of May 17 at our college camp. Several brave, warm-blooded souls went swimming in the river ; there were quite a few hands of bridge pl ayed on the front porch and on the lawn; and a rousing game of every-man-for-him elf baseball proved to be a great deal of fun for some. Supper was built around hot dogs which everyone cooked for themselves over a camp fire. For desert-toasted marshmallows. After dark, we gathered in the living room, built a fire in the fireplace and listened to "Doc" (Dr. Latimer, one of our sponsors) tell stories. At a rather late hour we "hit the hay" to dream of all the pleasant happenings of the day. Sunday morning several of our group went to a church nearby, while the rest of us slept on. Breakfast was a very jolly and amiable occasion- lingered over and enjoyed by everyone. Lincoln House started to breathe again about the fifteenth of September. After several days of unpacking, visiting and gabbing with friends, we began the task of putting our house in order. The next few days wer e a flurry of flying brooms, scrub mops and dust cloths. We scrubbed and waxed our living room floor and then with

our own little hands, dry cleaned our rugs. We were very pleased at the results. Even the experts couldn't have done better! One of our members, Mary Ruth Jones, thought of a brilliant way of making our living room look better- refinishing the furniture. It sounded like a good idea so we got some and paper, walnut stain and varnish and went to work on our round table and coffee table. A great deal of elbow grease was required but the finished product was well worth the effort. We've even had comment on our NEW furniture! Our future improvement pl ans include refinishing two more tables, painting the hall, making drapes for our double doors and we are trying to rai e enough money to buy a new radiophonograph combination. We have a new transfer member with us this year. She i Joy Turner from Concord College in Athen , We t Virginia. We are very happy to have her and hope she will enjoy being with u . Lately, we have heard from or about many of our alumnae. "Zookie" Riley, who is now attending the University of Virginia, was a auest at Lincoln House from September 19 to 27. Fran Mo ely, ,.,ho is working as a home economi t for the Virginia Electric and Power Company, is now living in Staunton and visits us quite frequently. Emily Scott is teaching in Martinsville, Virginia, and from all reports has found it very interesting! J ean Roe and Gloria Shaver are giving Wa hington, D . C., a whirl.

W e heartily congratulate Lois Anne on this distinct honor. Besides our monthly dessert m ee tings our program is interspersed with a ttractive special events. Among th ese Ia t spring were the Easter luncheon and party p:iven for Sigma graduates by the alumnae. Summer activities of our group were many and varied. At our September meeting we joined in a round-the-room discussion of them. We found that many had spent studiou summers a t various institutions of learning while others had traveled, some extensively. We are looking forw ard to coming events including our desse rt bridge in October and annual Founders' D ay Banquet in November.

With the presence of Pres ident Evelyn Fulbright of Alpha Beta a nd two other m embers from Huntington, we felt the occasion was a success. Doris Will has assum ed her duti e with a real spirit of enthusiasm. She was our delegate to the convention in Chicago and that

Many old and new faces were there . Installation of officers took place and President Elsie Pohl conducted an initiation service for new members. A fine business meeting was held and each officer received a folder pertaining to her office with a special note of encouragement from our president . E llenjane Gohlke reported on the recent convention and Johanne Favaloro served the refreshm ents . With conversation buzzing on summer vacations, convention ideas and memories, new babie, and plans for Wayne's annual Homecoming celebration, we appeared to be off to a good start in 1952-53. Especially with bran d new directories in our hands. New officers are: pre ident, Elsi e Pohl ; vice president, Jane Bradley ; recording secretary, Janice R egan; corresponding secretary, Ingrid agy; treasurer, Mary J ean Bristol ; historian, Vickie Brykalski ; chaplain, Rita Fortier; editor, J ane Gohlke.

A Founders' D ay Luncheon is being planned at the D etroit Yacht Club for November. D ecember brings the annual Christmas party and another social gathering is planned for January. Our goal for D etroit I this year is Expansion!- JANE GoHLKE.

Prominent J ÂŁnt _Alumnae ;!. THE chapter was off to an encouraging

start in September with the new officers: Cry tal H arn, pres ident, and Eloi e Howes, vice pre ident, taking over at a tea a'nd busi-

ness meeting at the home of Hazel Schultz. Initiated that afternoon were Diane Hatles tad, Gloria Wedge, and Ola Hiller. Mae Fraser, Detroit, was a guest. The following week, the group ponsored a remunerative rummage sale. Another ocial project introduced was ways and means of m aking life brighter for elderly people in Flint's convalescent homes. Among the programs lined up for the year are a Christmas party and visit to one convalescent hom e, a book review, the anniversary dinner, and a gue t luncheon for nearby chapters. Attending the convention from Flint were Shirley Green, Hazel Schultz, Crystal H earn, and Eloise Howes. These ingenious girls presented their report by a recorded cript. Other summer jaunts included: Luella Clapp, Bl ack Hills and Yellowstone; Ola Hill er, a seminar on public chool broadcasting, ponsored by the N a tional As ociation of Educa tion Broadcasting and K ellogg Found-ation, at Allerton Hou e, U niver ity of Illinois; Lucill e M aWhinney, a delegate for Flint Classroom Teachers, National Education Association Convention in Detroit, and later a trip, including a stopover with J eanette Harding in 0 hawa, Ontario, through the Adirondacks, V ermont, and N ew H ampshire; Pauline D emp ey flew to Buffalo, returning by car through Niagara and Canada; Pauline Wood and Gretchen Gaffney were among those vacationing in northern Michigan. In O ctober, Louise L eroy accompanied her husband to the national drug conven tion in St. Louis.

i\. HoNORING Miss Frances Bot ford, advisor emeritus, at the May meeting, the Muncie alumnae m et for a dinner m ee ting a t the home of Mrs. Louis Nelson. At tha t time Miss Botsford had just announced that she was resigning as associate professor of busine s education at the college. She pl anned to travel and investigate various geographical locations with the idea of choosing the spot where she could serve bes t and enjoy most the next several years. Shortly after Miss Botsford came to the Ball State campus in 1930, she became a patroness of the Delta Sigma local sorority. In 1945, when D elta Sigma sorority became th e Alpha Alpha Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau, she, too, was initiated and continu ed as advi or. Through the years she has been ever ready to help with her hands, with her head, and with her heart in anything which was for the good of the sorority or any of its individual members. H er faithfulness in attend ance, h er willingn ess to h elp, her sage counselcontributed in a large measure to es tablishing a firm foundation for the present trong Alpha Alpha chapter on the campus of Ball State T eachers College. Our pring m eeting were concluded with a "fried chicken and everything" m eal at the home of Mrs. Jo eph McColm with hu sbands and children as special guest . Several of both were present and added variety and flavor (and noise !) to the gathering. The official delegate of the Muncie Alumnae Chapter to the national convention in August was Mrs. Leon Scott. Rachel, prior to convention, was lukewarm about such a gathering and confided to someone tha t she

thought it might be sort of a bor And th n came th awakening ! R achel, accompa nied by Ethel Himelick, motored to Chicago on the opening day of the conventi on. Th e two girl s found th ir way, midst a driving rain, to the Conrad Hilton despite th fact th a t R achel read the map backwards in trying to direct Ethel, the driver. After th usua l struggle with baggage and room assignm nt, th e two Mun ie-ites arriv d a t the luncheon during the fruit cockta il , and waved gre tings across th e hall to the oth r Mun cie d legates, H elen Cross and Ruth Fox. From then on th e jam-packed program picked up momentum and R achel's enthusiasm began to moun t in a corresponding m anner. Th e next thing R achel knew she was a t the fa rewell luncheon on Friday, and conventi on was a lm ost at the memory stage. There were memori es of tha t initi al sing a t the opening luncheon, the gradual spotting of familia r face - how good to . ee Mrs. Staehl e again ; memorie of the impressive memoria l service a nd the model initi a tion , the dress-up Pa nhell en ic tea; convention belles, the Alph a Sig- a! and its sincere and fri endly editor ; the district breakfast with Ball Sta te's Evelyn Luecking presiding as top man for our di trict ; the down-to-earth realisti c a pproach to the problems of chapters all over the country; th e ea y and gracious manner (my fri end and your fri end ) of our n ational p resid ent, Mrs. R obin on ; the excitement of the TV show ; th e queen selection and the uspen e a ttached thereto; that fab ulous banquet and the Alpha Alpha an tic ; !he fa rewel l luncheon and " the thing."

Socia/ Service ;\:. LET's begin where I left off last timeM arch . Usually this month is a dreary one but the Sa turday we had our mee ting it was a beautiful day. The sun was out in full force to help us enjoy our m eeting at Polly M ash's. At this time the nomin ating committee was appointed along with committees for the annu al spring luncheon in May. The following month of April fo und u with new offi cers to be installed . The very impressive installation services were held at the hom e of Betty Bates. Our president for this year is Geraldine Huffm an with Betty Ba tes serving as vice pre ident. Committee reports and final pl ans for the luncheon were given a t this meeting. It was a typical May D ay atmo phere com pl ete with miniature M aypole and M ay baskets for our spring luncheon. Alumnae from Bluefi eld, Wa r and Beckley were invited guests to honor all the Alpha Sigma T au gradua ting seniors from Omicron . The luncheon was held in the First Presbyterian Church a t Princeton. The seniors were initiated into their respective alumnae groups in the church social room following the luncheon. This service is always inspiring not only to the new alumnae but a lso to the old. Standing toge ther singing our sorority hymn, repeating our creed, or just being together helps to refresh the true spirit of Alpha Sigma T au. M any of the girls felt tha t something should be done during the summer months to keep the group together. It was also the desired opinion of the group that we should do some local social service in addition to tha t which we do through the ational Social Service. So we met each month this pa t summer, busy ing ourselves with making favors for hospita l trays, bringing cu rren t magazines for the wa rd , and doing small things of thi nature for our loca l hospital. Two of our girls had the wonderful experience of a tt nding th 路na tion al convention at Chi cago in August. They were Pencie Oney

and Wanda Bradley. To hear them tell of their experience made u all wish we could have attended also. Hila Arrington has replaced H enrietta Hamilton who has resigned as Omicron Alumnae R epresentative. September found us busy vvith m aking plans for the new year. One of our projects for this year is to raise money for a fil e for our group. W e plan to do this by such things as chances on a door prize, or " dime in the cake" a t each meeting. T he plan proved to be quite profitable and also a lot of fun at our Sep tember meeting. Our O ctober meeting will be a joint meeting with Bluefield Alumnae with Dr. M eade M cNeill as gue t peaker. We all look forward to these meetings with Bluefield. Well, I guess that about brings us up to da te on Princeton-Athens Alumnae news.

fechmond-PeterjbUrtJ (}etj Jof}elher ;\:. WE are a widely cattered group, but we can always manage to get together and have a good time. Our social gath erings are often combined with business, but our one big social affair of the year is our Spring Outing to which we take our husbands. In May this outing was a Fish Fry which was a great success-especially with the m en. We enjoyed roughing it, wearing shorts an d slacks and eating fish and hush puppies with our finger . The fi h were fr ied in pans over a big open wood fire- then the hush puppies fried in the same pans. All this fun took place on the banks of the J ame River near H opewell.

In September we met for our usu al Dutch Trea t Luncheon at a local tearoom, and we enjoyed catching up on new of the summer' activitie and m ade some pl a ns for our year together. W e plan to have our Founders' D ay Banquet in November a t the H alf W ay House which is very suitably named since it is loca ted half-way between Richmond and Petersburg on the Pike. At our April meeting we will h ave a planned program, preceded first by a dinner a t the Paddock R es taurant.

;\:. AGAIN the St. Louis Alumnae chapter planned a full schedule of events for a coming year. In addition to our regularly scheduled meetings, we had a number of social gatherings. September found us attending our now annual "F all Breakfast." A barbecue and a pot-luck supper were held in October. We have found these pot-luck suppers to be an easy and pleasant way of raising money for our expansion fund . During November, we joined with the actives a nd pledges in celebrating Founders' Day with a banquet a t Town H all R estaurant. Our luncheon card party, at the H otel D eSoto, was also held during this month. The annual" Christmas party in D ecember, and the chil i supper in J anuary were well attended and most enjoyable. Washington's Birthday was celebrated by our gathering for lunch at Stix, while the last but certa inly not the least of our parties will be one held during M ay for our Mothers.- jANIS M ARSHALL.

;\:. WE, in the W ashington, D . C., area, were all anxious to resume our regular monthly m eetings on Thursday, September 11 , 1952, for many reasons. Eagerly we shared our varied summer experiences. The trip to Chicago and the Alpha Sigma T au Convention of our presid ent, M eda R ay Sewell, her husband, Preston, and K a thleen K elchner was of particular interest to all of us. M eda R ay, K a thleen, and H arriet Stern, who was attending school in Chicago, not only showed us pictures taken in the " windy city" but also they gave us an interesting detailed account of convention meetings and activities. W e were h appy to find our recommendation regarding associate alumnae members was adopted . At our meeting we compl eted our installation of officers when Dorothy Driver officially became our vice pre ident. This ceremony we shared wi th four pro pec tive members of our alumnae group .

Just as we are adding to our membership we are losing, for a short time, Hildred Kinzer and Siddartha Mahaffey who recently added a new member to their families. As our representatives at a Panhellenic T ea were D orothy Gates and Alice Coon. In October we will chaperone on Saturday night a t the Y.W.C.A. in Washington. With such activities as these and many more brewing we are assured of a most successful year together.-Jo ANNE CRITZEA.

;\:. THE Williamsport Alumnae thinks it is wonderful to get together again after our varied summer vacations. Martha M atchett and her family went on a camping trip . Helen Dittmar moved to a new apartment and spent her time painting. J ean Wolfe and family went to Atlantic City. Mary Ulmer pent her vacation traveling. In June and July he went to the Adirondack Mountains in N ew York, acros Lake Champlain, through the White Mountains into M aine. She then took a Windjammer cruise from Camden, M aine. During August she visited the Thou and I slands and went up the St. Lawrence River to Montreal. She came back home through Cooper town, New York.
