1}our6 . lo pa66 on YouR privilege of membership in Alpha Sigma Tau is now one which you are entitled to pass on to girls whom you feel are worthy of becoming members. Like the privilege of voting in any democratic country, it is also a great responsibility. The future functioning of any organization rests in the continual revitalization and reevaluation of its membership. During the summer months you will be learning of girls who will be entering colleges in which Alpha Sigma Tau has chapters. These girls will require your recommendations to the collegia te chapter for membership. Will you send to the collegiate president the recommendation blank for these girls? Even though your recommendation may not be as complete or as personal as you might wish it to be, the initial contact will be made and the chapter is able to follow through. For colleges in which Alpha Sigma T au does not have chapters, send your recommendations to Alpha Sigma Tau, 5641a S1. Kingshighway, St. Louis 9, Missouri. These recommendations are also important as they serve as a nucleus to expansion. Additional recommendations may be made in letter form.
