DEAR FRIENDS : T HIS year is o ur thirtieth annive rsary. L et's ma:ke -it a record one in every good way. Wi thout p lanning i t, or knowi ng it was going to happen, we have become something of an international school. This fi lls us with humble p ride, and with a sense of grave responsibility. Pl ease, all of you, help u s to di scha rge th~s responsibility worthily. As for fin ances, probably no ol1h er educatio nal institutio n of this size operates with no endowmen t, no backlog, other than the two gifts we have of $ 1,000.00 each for endowment. It is th e m any sma ll gifts from our hosts of fri ends th at keep us hopeful and growing. Every year there is an increasing number of these which is a heartwarming experience for us. Sa les from the book GIFT FROM THE HILLS have been most gratifying, and t!he book has been very graciously and enthu siastically received . All of which brings me grea.t person al sacisfaction, and the fact that a les from t he book have h elped ease the fin ancial strain ha been an addi tional joy. L et us a ll make .this the best year for a ll those with whom we com e in contact, and for the school which reaChes lov-ingly into tht> four corner of the earth. ~

芦Colleges can highly serve us w here the路y ann, not to drill bnt to create." -




long ago I was di sturbed to read a newspaper report of a student'

maintained that today's co!leo-e senior view "a better paying job . .. more


his ed ucat ion

peech which

imply as a mean


. . . ocial position."

If there are students who seriously believe this, then it eems to m e they have rni sed

the ma in point of college-or indeed of being a live, and that we are in for trouble. The tru e libera l edu cation ha larger a ims than ju t cramming it st udents with facts m order 路to teach them how to ea rn a 'living. First, it must help eac h student to find him-

self as an individual ; then it must help him to lose himself in interests. causes, and idea

larger and more enduring than he. America h as no need for a race of young peopl e fitted to the

arne pattern, content

to sit back a nd enj oy what has been call ed "a prosperous conformity." But our country will always have room for im agin ative, rea o nab le, and responsible men and women. And it desperately needs the info rmed a nd the truly creative among its young people. I believe the teacher's m1sswn is to help every young person in his care grow into the broadest, deepest, most vita-l person possible. And in fulfilling himself, the student will I am convinced, arrive at moments of heightened insight when he sees more clearly than ever before what the world is about and how he can fit into it creatively and signifi cantly. Vi ewed this way, a co llege educa tion suddenly takes on new m eani ng- and so do the staggering estim ates of college enrollment. In stead of a frightening prospect of millions of yo ung people solely concerned with a scramble for better jobs, we can look forward confidently to a challenging tomorrow when millions of young Americans turn to college because they want to realize their full capacity as human beings, to find major pleasure in lea.rnino-, to live richly a nd responsibly, and to do the ir part to help create a better world.-RejJTinted from Trrrs

FRATERNITY SPIRIT ;'\; SINCE the world began, H eaven's kindest, noblest boon to men and women has been friendship . There are no dearer friendships than those of college life; the re are no closer friendships in college life than those that may be formed through the sororities or fraternities, if only the true meaning of such organizations is properly understood. The real function of college fraternities is to cultivate friendship in college life, not only among 路t he members of the same " frat," but also among the members of different "frats," and among those, too, who have not experienced the delight of the world of " fratdom." . . . "The foundation of friendship is confidence, .and confidence cannot dwell where selfishness is porter at the gate." Fraternities, then, ought to be a means of harmonizing a ll possible factions of college life. To know ourselves as parts of one wondrous whole constitutes our charities a nd bearings. In other words, the fratern ity ought to be a fountain to furni h the fresh fluid of fri endshi1p, only to be taken from it for distribution among aJ l members of the college fami ly. There is a Scottish saying that "friendship canna stand aye on one side." So it wiH be with the fraternity. It cannot find its friendship always in the fraternity itself, but must assert ~ts broad-mindedness and hand out 路this speechless treasure to others . . . . W e plead for tha t higher order of .fraternal spirit that will find friendship not only in the fraternity itself, but also in the college at large. The sweet spirit of our fraternal life cements our sou ls, for the rrradu al cul ture of kind intercourse brings friendsmp to p erfection.

Pine Mountain Settlement School

Is an

Alpha Sigma Tau National Service Project o\. PINE MouNTAIN settlement school was founded by Katherine Pettit and Ethel deLong at the invitation of William Creech, a resident of the narrow valley, who gave a tract of his land to the school. It started as a boarding school, Christian in motivation, but non-sectarian, for children in an extremely isolated area. Since 1949 Pine Mountain has cooperated with the Harlan County Board of Education to operate a day school, consolidating seven nearby one-room school districts. The county pays the well-qualified teachers, furnishes transportation for the children, and helps with the cost of maintaining the classrooms. Berea College plays a supervisory role but does not furnish any of the financia l support. Seniors from Berea come to do their practice teaching at Pine Mountain. More than 200 children are enrolled in grades one through ten. They come in daily on school busses from homes scattered along narrow creek valleys. F athers of many families work in mines across the mountain or


the lumber woods. Most families garden but there is not enough level land for full-time farming. A new venture is starting in vocational and recreational activities. Two workers will lead both school and after-school interest groups in such things as woodworking, sewing, playgrou nd sports, dramatics, and music. This program, to provide important leisure-time activities will develop in response to the interests of the young people.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! F rom intere ted friend Pine Mountain Settlement School must raise $40,000 annua lly to maintain the hospital and the many school activities pictured here. Your gift will help us continue this vital community ervice in an Isolated mountain nei(Thborhood.


What Alpha Sigma Tau Means to Me by ZoAnn Sleighter, Alpha Alpha Pledge

Explanation of this Article

t- To ME, Alpha Sigma Tau means t he group of girls that a:re my closest friends; the girls with whom I can enjoy myself the mo t, and yet, when I am in pain or in doubt they are the first with a cheery, encouraging mile and a helping hand. These are the girls I want to do my best for. The Alpha Tau gi11ls generally Share my interests and opinions, yet each giTI is different, making t he sorority tinteresting, and presenting a combination of ideas that form the best of conclusions. T hrough ALpha Sigma T au I h ave met new girls and received new ideas. I have learned more about good sportsmanship in borh winning a nd losing . Alpha Sigma Tau means something new and exciting. I know that through sorority I Wli ll lea·rn many new things about social life and living among others. By b eing very close to rthe girls in Alpha Sigma T a u, I hope to learn more about different communities a nd different types of living. Sorority a lso gives an opportunity to do things Vhat a girl will do only once in a lifetime. Since sorority is n ew to me, there are many things .that I want to gain f.rom it. I want to tudy etiquette so tihat I may have the poise a nd ease of a woman. I want to learn more about other women:. I want sorority to give m e an active part in campus life. I want sorority to mean a lot to me. I want to cherish t he many things that I will learn in my .i nitiation. I want sorority to give me many things, but in returill' I want sorocity to take from me THE ANCHOR

We expevimented with a new idea this year and found it so successful that we wish everyone to know about it. All of our pledges were required to write a theme entitled, "Wih at Alpha Sigma T au M eans to M e." During ouT " Fl.III1! Night" eaclh p ledge read her theme oto •the actives and it drew many of us closer together mak.i ng everyone stop and think. For our Parents' Day Breakfast we picked the theme which we considered expressed the true !a nd d eep feelings which every pledge has towaTds Alpha Sigma Tau. Here .is the letter wlhich we chose . . . and tihe choice was not an easy one to make, for all of .the themes were excellent. We felt the experiment was such a success t hat we are going to make it a yearly practice . . . perhaps o·ther Alpha Tau chapters would like to do the same. SHARI RicE

Rush was an experience in itself---meeting many new girls, and especially getting to meet girls of other sorocities. Yes, rush was exciting, with its waiting periods, anxious moments, exdting moments, and rush pa·rties. How well I recall the Alpha Sigma Tau ruSh parties- the ·last one especially when tJhe girls sang " You'll N ever Wailk Alone," the memorable night we were pledged.

Flora Regal White, Alpha

Vice President of Contemporary Handweavers of Texas

Flora Regal White, Alpha. is Vice President of the Contemporary Hand-Weavers of Dallas. Texas.

t THREE years ago I was invited to join a group desiring to learn hand weaving. Under the instruction of Estella H enkel, a Master Weaver, such words as warp, weft, harness, heddle and shuttle soon took on meaning. I made a warp, dressed m y loom an d learned how to operate it. M y first bit of weaving was a finger-tip linen towel. Linen place mats with matching napkins followed. Tllis was really very easy. And so it is to be a " Shuttle thrower" -but far more is required if one is to be a respected W eaver. The operation of a loom i easil y mastered, it is the design, color association and relations'h ip of materia ls used, th at makes it an exciting dema nding craft. There is mu ch to be learned from the past. I don't, however, suggest one need go back ten thou and years,


as weaving does. Looms today are essentially the arne as those of a thousand years ago but what one does with them can be very different. All the traditional designs of the past influ enced by the contemporary, -the fine linens and wools used over the years plus the synthetic fibers of the present and the ever gleaming metallic now available are a challenge. As hand weaving- once a necessity, now more or les a hobby- gains in popularity, there are more and more ources of suppl ' open to us. It takes some hunting but persistence usually bring the de ired ma terial . An example, two years ago I needed dacron, wool and silk to wea e material for a port jacket for my husba nd . After much correspond ence I located da ron and wool on the


.H R

East Coast and the needed silk on the West Coast. I have used ribbon, long sacred to the knitting of dresses, combined with fine wool to weave dress material. A skirt of such material in French blue combined with a cashmere sweater with collar of the ribbon is much admired . I have also used fine wool and raw silk for skirt material and the trim on the hand knit sweaters to be worn with them. The weaving of ribbon for neck-tie material took much patience, as ribbon will not be forced and curls its edges if one does more than " ease" it into place. However, the making of the ties was more tedious than the weaving of the material and not as much fun . I have just completed a dozen place mats of mercerized Scotch linen. They have an old huck pattern center a nd plain border. Snowy, gleaming white, they are a most satifactory proj ect to have finish ed. I am now

at work on napkins of much fin er linen, to match. These past two a nd one-half years I have been Chairman of the Dallas Ch apter of th e Contemporary Handweavers of T exas a nd this past year the Vice President of the sta t organiza tion. The twenty-fifth state convention was held in Dallas in April and as Chairman of tha t convention, I was busy. We had a good exhibit of handwoven articl es and some very stimulating talks. I took a ribbon on one of my neckties and was delighted as it had to make its place through design, color association and workmanship, being a most unaesthetic article. ~

I hope I have made weaving ch all engingenough to awaken your interest, demanding enough to justify it as a wort'hwhile hobby and fun enough to invite you to try it. It's all of these and more.- FLORA REGAL WHITE.

M y job is an interesting one as WAF Commander. I have girls from nearly all the fifty States attached to t he WAF Squadron Section . I have learned a great deal from working with women from so rn.a.ny varied backgrounds. Besides my primacry duty, I also have •tlhe additional duty of Fami•ly Services Offi cer.

NEW CHAPTER, ALPHA ETA, INSTALLED AT ALMA COLLEGE ;\;. THE Alpha Eta Chapter is new on Alma's Campus this year. It is the first National Sorority to be installed, so it was a big occasion for both the girls of the new chapter and the campus, too. The chapter was installed May 13, 1959, by Mrs. Mary Peterson . The new m embers are Nancy Fashbaugh, president ; Judy Eldred, vice president ; Judy Arft, treasurer; Charlene Walton, recording secretary; Rosalie Karukas, M ary H eying, Sue Scott, Marcia McWethy, K ay King, Lois Taylor, Margaret Ulch, Barbara Busby, Judy Wedler, Beverly Orr, Lou Ada Bosquette, and Donna Allen. Our advisers were installed along with the girls. They are Miss Gunda Kaiser and Miss Kathleen Dillinger. Some of the activities throughou t the yea r have been Homecoming and the annu al Par-

ents' Banquet. During the Christmas Season the chapter co-sponsors th e festive Alpha Sigma Tau-Delta Gamma Tau H oll y House with rheir brother fraternity the D elta Gamma Tau fraternity. Another event everyone looks forward to is the Tau's Amo Te dance on Valentine's D ay. This year it was called Amo T e in Wonderland and was a great success. When spring rushing came along the charter members became rushees with their pledges an d together they pledged Alpha Sigma T au. The year ended with the formal initiation in May and Michigan Day, so nhe final formal dinner and dance and sorority weekend was a time for celebration and united ha ppiness. T he Alpha Eta cha pter is looking forward to another happy and eventfu l year. - LOis

M Rs . PETERSON was the one who really was the buy one. Carol Wohlfeil Brown a nd I left ihere (FI路int) brig~ht and early and drove 1:0 Mt. Pleasant where M路rs. P eterson had been inspecting Betas for two days. W e picked her u p and drove to Alma where we had coffee with some of the girls before Mrs. Peterso n ta rted he r rounds of appointments with D ean Vreeland a nd Dr. Swanson, President of Alma College, and the officers of the c hapter. Whil.e M rs. P. was on her rounds Carol a nd I turned 路i nto " A-1 ironers" with the pressing of 35 robes! (I never realized how much effort there is behind an installa tion and I never thought we'd ever make it by the 5:30 dinner time, but we did! ) Our formal banquet was held at the banquet hall of G elston H a ll with m e acting as toa tmistre a nd addresse of we lcome by Dr. Robt. D . Swan on, response and installation by Mrs. Peterson. The patrone ses pre ented the girl with a ilve路r tray, the Hou e Moth er of their brother fraternity pre-


sented a cry tal platter and A~T national orority pre ented an engraved ilver tray. The Flint Alums made the favor which followed ~h e them e "A ~T launches a n ew a tellite," a lso ~he programs and I gu we should have brushed up on our Greek alphabet 'cause the AJpha Eta chapter was printed a A~ instead of AH and no one noticed the difference until we were all through! At each place we mad e a gold foil rocket, too. After the banqu et we adjourned to the Chapter orority room where initiation and installation were held. Four m ember cam e from F<lint to assi t (Mrs. Hazel Schultz and M rs. V erna N ewm an beside Carol a nd Me ) and everal Beta uirls came.

Honestly, my folks are in show busine and I was in show business for a year a nd a half before college and t:his was just like a "one-night stand"- travel, sit up, do your show, pack up and leave. As hectic as any I remember. For t he amoun t of " back stage" ru h and the things that had to be done the banquet was beautiful and the ceremony was as beau ~iful as always, too. There wasn't a dry eye m the place ! I hope the girls that follow can have .the enthusiasm and desire that these girls who fou ght so hard for national had. Being the first na tional on campus certainly is a responsibility. T emporarily I'll act as Alum R epresentative for Alpha Eta until on e can be appointed.

ALPHA THETA CHAPTER IS INSTALLED ;\;. THE beautiful Whittier Hotel on the shores of the Detroit River was the setting for the Installation Banquet of the Alpha Theta Chapter at the U niversity of D etroit. O ver 40 people were present to see J eanette Valvona, president of rhe chapter, receive the charter from M rs. E arl Peterson, national president. Centerpieces of yellow roses graced the tables. Pl ace cards were decorated with two yellow rose earrings which were a lso the favors for the affair. Green prog ram covers carried a gold Alpha Sigma Tau shield and gold chapter symbols in the corner. Guests of honor seated at the speakers table were J eanette V alvona, president of Alpha Theta; Lillian Schippers, national expansion director ; Jul ie Espinosa, facu lty adviso r; Mrs. E a rl Peterson ; F ather Celestin J.

The banquet began with the inging of the Alpha Sigma Tau grace by D a rien Curtin a nd E la ine Tiihonen. Highlight of the


evening was the welcoming address <Tiven by Father Steiner. Following the theme of thoughtfulness, he encouraged the n ew members to welcome the opportunity of acquiring this most precious of man's assets in the bonds of their new organization. The selflessness or the unselfishness of the individual is the qu ality of his being which make him truly great a nd creates for him a rich life. This is the essence of one's humanity. He pointed out to the new member the loyalty which was evidenced by the presence of so many women who had long since left their college chapters, and still served the sorority faithfully. The national organization pre ented the new chapter with a silver tray engraved with the name and d ate of installation. Detroit Alumnae presented a monetary gift ($25) which wa sent to the Iational office for equipment and supplies for the new chapter. Mrs. Theodore Brigg served as toa tmi tre and introduced the guests. Mis Genevieve R epeta conducted the candlelightin(T en路ice which ended the proceeding .

On the occasion of the installation banquet ceremonies, May 17, 1959, I was proud of our young women students who were inducted into Alpha Sigma Tau, and deeply impressed by the national officers who conducted the program.

ILLINOIS-INDIANA STATE DAY -;\". THE idea for Illinois-I ndiana States D ay was conceived last August in Buffalo. H ow ma ny oth er good ideas came fro m that meeting, do you suppose? Since Evelyn Luecking a nd I h ad d riven from Muncie to M acomb when tiliey h ad their district meeting, we were well aware of the great distance. F or th at reason, we planned to hold this meeting at a mid-point - possibly D anvill e, Illinois. H owever, when th e Alpha Epsilon girls expressed disappointment at not h aving the oppor tunity of visiting Alpha Alph a's stamping ground we quickly cha nged the p lace to Ball State T eaChers College campus, Muncie, Ind. Twelve Alpha Epsilon collegiates arrived late (got lost, of course ) Friday night and stayed in the dorms.

Kansas State Day ~

THE big decision at the fiorst meeting of the Emporia Alumnae Chapter la5t fall was to have a State Day. At follow.i ng meetings more plans were made, commi.ttees were appointed and finally the plans put into action. The Wichita and Kansas City groups gave us encouragement and the collegiates offered their services. April 12 was chosen for the date so the weatlher would be favorable for travel. We sent letters to our Alums and were rewarded with a good response. Many of them who were unable rt o attend answered that they ·liked the idea and hoped to be able to attend am.other year. April 12 arrived with the wettest snow storm of the year. All our plans ·r uined by ·the weatJherhow wrong we were! N early 60 a~lumnae arrived during the registration hour at t!he chapter house. Our wonderful collegiates were hostesses for a coffee and also conducted the Alumnae on a tour of the house which has undergone much remodeling since many of vhe Alums called it home. Our •l uncheon was at ·tlhe Masornc Temple and two of our faithful members, Meredith llinShaw and

Ester Griffith, were our guest speakers. Our other s,pecial guests included Mrs. John King, wife of our college president, Dr. Ruth Schillinger, ou·r Dean of Women, ·M rs. Edna Loomis, housemother, Mrs. Abe Toms, cook, Mrs. Frank Nason, former housemother, and Mrs. Mina Whitaker, former cook. The collegiates presented a musical progra,m which was closed witih the singing of the Sweetheart Song. We were very grateful to the Hawaiian students on our campus for our ta;ble decorations. They had had flowers flown in from Hawaii the day before for their annual Luan and offered us the use of the flowers for our State Day. The college administration also contributed to our day by giving us the use of the T errace Room .i n the Student Union for our business meeting. Each and every alumna of the Emporia ohapter worked hard for a successful 'Sta:te Day and as goodbyes were aid ·to many sisters not een since college days we knew our time and effort had been well spent. W e are eagerly looking forward to State Day next year at Kansas City.

Collegiate News Alpha Gives Two Scholarships ;\. SPRING RUSH brought five new si ters into our chapter. They are: Su an Barker, Vera Baer, Sharon Landry, Michael Warner, and Margaret White. We added something new to our rush parties by having joint parties with â&#x20AC;˘the Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity. The entertai nment was great with one of our sisters from Hawaii doing a hula and another sister and brother doing an imitation of freshman dating the senior fraternity man . The Sigma Tau's bought a house this past semester and let us use it for our Ia t informal party. We used the theme, Alpha Traz, and all had a great time. This semester, th e Alpha chapter offered two scholarships to the girls on campus. It was decided that one would go to a nonsorority girl and the other one to an Alpha Sigma Tau. The ricipients of the awards were Marilyn Sue Waltz, a non-sorority girl and Jan H enderson, a member of the soror-

ity. The sorority plans to award one cholarship annua lly from now on. The cholar hip was made po ible when it was given to the orority on its fiftieth anniversary of the foundincr of the sorority. May 18 an d 19 we had a pleasant vi it from Mrs. Earl Peterson, our ational Pre ident. Mrs. Peterson gave a peech at our ann ual PanheUenic D essert at which time the awards a re given out to the three highest scholastic sororitie on campus. Mr . Pete rson was also asked to read one of the name who had won an award . Much to h er pleasant surpri e and ours, Alpha Sigma Tau had placed econd, only a fraction behind the fir t place schola tic winner. The end of the semester wa full of crreat . f t> t1mes or the chapter. W e had combined picnics with the Sigma T aus, our a nnual weekend cret-together, and our annual dinner da nce. We had our dinner dance off campu this year and gave brandy niffers as favors . Is was announced at this dance that Michael Warner ha d been the best pledge of the pledge clas and was awarded the travelincr prize. Sheil a Dougherty was given the cholarship pin for havincr the highest scholastic average among the juniors in the sorority. This fall we are looking forward to the fall ru h.

They were initiated on Sunday, Apri l 26, by President Karen Chamberlain. On th e eYening of May 25, the new actives serenaded us at the house and presented us their pledge project. It is a wooden plaqu e made in the hape of our pin and has the chapter letter attached to it. All of the girls signed their names around the sides of the plaque.

This semeste r we started a new Scholarship Program. We decid ed to discontinue study table, and to have helping sisters for the girls with below average grades. The Scholarship Chairman, M arlene Michalski, is the head of the program. One of her many duties is to co llect "reports of Progress" from each helping sister each week. So far, the program has worked out very well. We were very h appy that Mrs. Peterson cou ld visit us this year. She was on our campus from M ay 10-12 for National Inspection. She attended one of our meetings and was able to attend some of the campus activities during her stay with us.

THE ALPHA CHAPTER of Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority awarded two seventy-five dollar scholarships at its meeting on Monday at Charles McKenny Hall. Left to right are: Millie Leonhart, chairman, M. Susan Waltz, Janice Henderson, and Sally Latimer who is president of the sorority. The Alpha Sigma Tau Scholarship fund was begun by the national office of the sorority on the fiftieth Anniversary of the founding of the sorority. One award was presented to a non-sorority student. M. Susan Waltz, who is a junior at Eastern Michigan College. The other award was presented to a sorority member, Janice Henderson, who is a senior at Eastern Michigan College. The funds were made available â&#x20AC;˘ to Alpha Chapter because it was the first chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau. The scholarship is available to both sorority and non-sorority girls and is awarded on the basis of high scholarship and need.

Frat Frolics was a big event for us this year. We dramatized the skit, "Little Hood Redding Ride." W e each made our own costume, and everyone practiced her part faithfully. All of our practicing was well worth it, because we won first place. We now have ou r trophy displayed in the chapter room of the house. Sunday, May 17, was the beginning of Greek W eek. That evening we participated in Panhellenic Sing. We sang four songs from Pajama Game, and each of us wore striped nightshirts. A~T's took second place in that event. We also took part in the other events throughout Greek Week. Probably one of the most rewarding was the Community Project, in which all Greeks pa rticipated in painting the Isabella County Day School. On the social front, Betas were very active this spring. Jan Foglesong was chosen Pi K appa Phi Rose Girl, and was honored at their annual spring dance. We are also very proud of Cynthia Miller, who was the second runner up in the Mis Central Mj chiga n Contest. Cynthia Bracken was honored as queen of the Sigma Tau Gamma "White R ose Ball."

Spring elections made us very proud -and happy because many of our sisters were elected to campus offices. 1'hey are as follows : Ellie Kazuk, vice president of Associated Women Students; Peggy White, vice president of the junior class ; Mary Jo Gambino, secretary of the junior class ; Martha Prendergast, treasurer of the junior class ; and Jane D elanty, senator for the junior class. Along with other activities, such as, the Alpha-Traz Party (for A~Ts and their dates) ; the White .Rose Ball ; and Michigan D ay, we have had a very busy and successful semester. Two of the events at the close of the year are very important and mean a lot to all of us. They are Senior Farewell and Houseparty. Senior Farewell was held on M ay 26, and each girl who was leaving was given a loving cup and a yellow rose. R efreshments were served and entertainment was provided by the graduating seniors. Our Houseparty is held each year on M emori al Week-end. But this year we broke the tradition of going to Crystal Lake, and went to Georgia Peterson's cottage near Port Huron, Michigan. -NANCY MoRRISON.

One of the most important orority fun ctions was -the election of our sorority officers for the coming year. We all. feel very confident that Karen Becker, pre ident, and Rita Howell, vice-president, will lea d us through one of Iota's best years. Each spring Emporia State Teachers College chooses "Miss E-State" who is judged on personality, taJent, and beauty. Each campus organization selects a girl to represent them in the contest and Iota was very fortunate to have three candidates. Judy Peterson, Linda Hind, and Barbara Barkyoumb were the AT's representing various organizations in th e contest. We were very proud when Linda Hind wa cho en fir t runner-up


and Barbara Barkyoumb was elected econd runner-up. Our annuaJ Firebug party wa held in February this year. We had the traditional red decorations of crepe paper and firebug . AT's and their dates spent the evening dancinf, playing cards, and other o-ame . The election of Roger Green as the 路'AT Flame' wa the highlight of the entertainment. The Emporia aJum spon ored a 路路 tate Alumni Day' in April. The Iota collegiates were invited and provided entetta inment for the banquet. April found the AT' winging into spring with "Syncopation" as their spring formal theme. The theme wa carried out with ab tract decorations in bl a k, \V'h ite, and turquoise. Jackie Sell, chairman of the decorations, helped u have one of the bes t forma ls we have had. All of the girl at Iota aJways look forward to Parent Day.

renew old acquaintances from the Greek organ izations, as all of the sororities and fraternities on campus are invited to attend. We are all proud of Bobbi Damico, who was installed as president of the C. S. C. Panhellenic. For spring quarter rush we tried a system whereby each rushee was rushed by a different group of Alpha Tau's every day for two weeks. We were divided into four groups and took charge of making and delivering favors to the girls each day. To welcome our six new pledges, we had a slumber party at the house with litvle sleep, but lots of fun! We participa ted in the Sigma Chi "D erby Days," which consisted of conte ts and games for which points are earned. It was very exciting, and we came out tied for second place. Joyce Simmons was our cand id ate for qu een. After many early morning practices and a number of evening ones, we were ready for one of the biggest All-Greek activities on campu - Song F est. Anita Lloyd very ably led us in singing, "Th e Hall of I vy" and our "Sweevheart Song. " Our dresses were blue plaid with full skirts. On e of the highlights of our year's ac tivities is our Spring Dinner Dance. This year it was held at th e W ellshire Inn in D enver. The theme " Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White,'" was carried out in the place cards and tabl e decorations. Special recognition was given to our two retiring faculty advisors, Mrs. John Fulbright and Mrs. C a rl M elander, for all they had done during the past years. The cholarship award was presented to Anita Lloyd. Two girls shared the honor of outstanding active-Bobbi D amico and Anita Lloyd. L aurel Scott, who is now serving as sorority president, received the Outstanding Pledge Award. W e appreciate all these girls have don e for <the sorority. To conclude a full year we had our Parents' Day Luncheon at the Camfield Hotel in Gree ley, May 31. At this time we were happy to welcom e our two new faculty advisors, Mrs. Wallace Aas and Mrs. John Micky. The entertainment, given by the seniors, followed the theme of the Colorado Centennial. They took us from Connecticut through all the states represented by the seniors to our new state of Hawaii.


At Insignia Day, our sorority received th trophy for the so rority making the most improvement in scholarship during th past year.- GRACE BRISCOE.

Omicron Listens to Mayor t O uR TEN Omicron pledges worked extremely hard to prep are their party for the actives. Th e theme was "King Neptune's Land Under the Sea." D ecorative emerald and gold octopi made of yarn were presented as favors to the actives and p a tronesses. This was a fitting beginning for a semester filled with constructive and enjoyable activi ties. Early in March, we traveled to Beckley to th e home of Miss Ida Pitotti where we were the guests of the Beckley alums . We were served spaghetti and calories were nonexistent. The next few weeks were filled with the sorority homework of learning history and ea rning points. Finally the big day came an d on April 12, in the Concord College Social Room, ten girls were initiated into the Omicron Chapter. Our new members a re : Janet R. Kahle, Chris Knuth, Mary Ann M artin, Sally McCrary, Carolyn Pantili, Lilli an Payne, Mary Jo Perry, Cathy R amsey, Irene Sweeney, and Kay W eikle. After the ceremony, delicious refreshments were served by the Princeton alums. Late in April new officers were elected and installed. Th e new members, as well a the old, found new responsibility and initia tive in learning and doing a task lovingly and successfully . We Omi cron girls were privileged to h ave Mr. Rouse Cook, the past mayor of Athens, Wes t Virginia, speak to us about the city government and its responsibilities to the citizen. This meeting was held at the home of Mrs. Klingensmith, a patroness. Another cu lture program was h eld at the home of a patroness, Mrs. Jamison. Dr. George Moore was the speaker and selected as his topic " Women in Politics." We found his <talk informative as well as interesting. 'llhe next few days found all of us getting our formals ready as the next Friday May 1,


was the day of the Annual Spring Formal. The formal was held at the Bluefield Country Club and everyone enjoyed it. The dreamy music was played by "The Hi-Fi's." Dianne Bowling was selected by the Kappa Sigma Kappa Fraternity as their Sweetheart, and Cathy Ramsey was the recipient of th e Bes t Pledge Award. Our next party was one of parting. Yes, it was the Senior Party given for c>ur two seniors, Dianne Bowling and Mary Catherine Bones. We've enjoyed having both of you a sisters and realize our loss at your graduation. Our next get-together wasn't quite so solemn. We were invited to a picnic by ouT brothers, the Kappa Sigma Kappa Fraternity at Camp Creek State Park. The weather was good and the ants cooperated by being conspicuously absent. We of Omicron are looking forward to a productive year in 1960.- MARY ANN MARTIN.

At the beginning of the new semester, our girls were again busily engaged in rush activities. In spring rush, we again received ten wonderful sisters, two of which walked in a new practice at Madison, Open Bidding. Local Founders' D ay saw many Alpha Sigma Tau smiles as we had a supper an d "a night of ·f un"-this was especially 1n honor of our spring pledges since .there was no rush party for them. The school year ended with mixed emotions of merriment and sadness as our senior girls entered the vast world of Alpha Sigma Tau Alumnae.- BETSY GooDMAN .

of Helen M. Frank ~ ;\. FRoM the ma ny things I have learned at the A~T Na tion al Convention art: Buffalo the most startling to m e was the revelation that Vhose unofficial .get-togethers in t he wee hours of the morning can produce results undreamed of a:t .the time. After many short conferences, P-si Alums and ·collegiates in Buffalo finally were able to set a gathering t ime to meet a fter the banquet ·in D.C. d elegates rooms.

It was from that ·idea that results materialized i nto the H elen M. Frank ScholarShip Award.

We came to the conclusion that the scholarship hould be given as an award to the Psi Junior collegiate member who showed outstanding academic rating and high sorority ideals. Psi members gat!hered for the annual Founders' Day Party where unex.pected guests arrived 路i n the person of Mrs. Varner (retiring Panhellenic Advisor) and Miss Winn (the new advisor). Miss Frank had illu ~ions 路that some of her flock were getting out of line until Mrs. Varn er was introduced and made a nice announcement of the Scholarship. From reports I have received Miss Frank was flabbergasted and very much pleased. After catching her breath she opened the e nvelop e wirt!h the nam e of the recipient for 1959-60 who was Miss Marilyn Mill er of Portsmouth, Psi president this year. T'he two being honored were presented with flowers, Miss Frank an arm bouquet of yd low -roses and M a:rilyn a yellow rose corsage.

period. Our new sisters protrayed a psychiatrist ~nd his patient, which proved to be very amusmg. On June 13, we installed our n ew sisters at the home of Miriam M eek. After installation, we treated the girls to dinner and dancing at Guy Lombardo's Restaurant in Freeport, Long Island. Our chapter is very proud of its growth in the past year, and we hope to excell even this record next year. But combined with our new grow th is th e departure of many of our sisters. This past graduation saw ten Alpha Zetas receive degrees. Along with the degrees, m a ny of our sisters received the d egree of MRS. Because of the close feeling in our chapter, Alpha Zeta has begun the tradition of giving the new brides a gift of remembrance from th e sorority. In this way, no matter how far our sisters may go, they will always rem em ber their chapter a nd the good times we have had. Coupled with this new tradition was the celebration of the founding of our chapter on June 21 , 1958. This past June all the sisters gathered for a luncheon at the Homestead Hotel. This date is especially dear to us as we recall our own thrill of our initiation at the Statler H otel. Alpha Zeta held a n off-campus party a week after school started a nd it was a great success.- RosEMARY HEDLUND.

Emporia Enthusiastic About State Day ;\; THE Emporia Alumnae Chapter devoted most of its spring meetings to planning and evaluating our first State Day which was held April 12. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, and in order to attend, the alumns had to travel through a spring snow storm. Nevertheless 120 alurnns and collegiates participated in the activities which commenced with a coffee and open house at the chapter house. The girls took advantage of this time to visit with old friends, make new acqu ainta nces, and .see the progress which has been made on the house. Throughout the house, one could find groups of amused collegiates list ening to tales of how things have changed and the mischievous things "we did in the good old days." The group then moved in the storm to the luncheon where our District President, Mrs. J. Waldo Hinshaw, spoke. Entertainment consisted of group singing of many of our sorority songs, a skit and song by Linda Hind, and presentation of their Singing Bee number hy rt:he collegiates. Tn the business m eeting following the lnncheon, the alumns enthusiastically agreed that State Day should be repeated and made pl ;:ms to meet next year in Kansas City. The Emporia alumns concluded the year's activities with a family picnic June 4, and again we heard the words, "This was fun .

Summer found some of us helping the Iota actives become acquainted with prospective rushees. A June tea was held at alum Georgine Wolf's home. T erry cloth swimming bags attractively initialed with A~T were presented to the girls as remembrances of the occasion. Families gathered at the Antioch Park for o~r annual picnic in July. Croquet, badmmton, and horseshoes provided some of the recreation. Although a number of babies are arriving in our group, we've had just one recent bride, Kathy O'Donnell. She' ll remain in our club since she and h er husband are both teaching in Kansas City, Kans. Our husbands joined us at our October get-together for an informal party m Arneida's recreation room. Plans are rapidly developing now for State D ay in April, 1960, which our K.C. alum group will sponsor. Th e meetings and luncheon will be held in Johnson County, Kansas , southwest of K ansas City, thus avoiding big-city congestion. We are in terested in seeing our group grow. If any A~T 路aJlums whom we haven't contacted are in the K.C . area, you may reach Phyllis Gutzman at RAndolph 2-0737. We m eet the first Tuesday of 路e ach month and have loads of fun . -J oETTA KoPPENHOEFER.

Richmond-Petersburg Works for Pan hellenic ;1; Tms spring we a:ll 'have been busy with

new homes, redecorating old homes, a new " crop" of babies and the usual club and civic work at A~T's. Mary Ellen Wi.Jliams Comstock and J ean Pritchett Williams L a ne purchased a nursery and kindergarten in Petersburg. They h ave children from rhree to six years of age-( over 150 ). We went by to "pass inspection" before our program m ee路t ing in February with Jean Williams. Also in February our president Ann Gray Cooke THE ANCHOR

modeled in the fashion show at the Richmond Panhellenic F ashion Show and Annual Bridge Party. Proceeds from this party go to t'he city scholarship fund. J ean Gazert HaH has been elected vice president of City Panhellenic for '59-'60. We are all quite proud of her. She also was " our shopper" a t Miller & Rhodes this spring. Miller & Rhodes (one of our leading department stores) paid girls from each alumnae sorority group to shop for them . One-half of this money went to Panhellenic and the other half to the sorority. These shoppers pretended to shop but really were grading the clerks on approach, sales, follow-up, etc. Our group profited by J ean's shopping. "The May Outing," husbands included, was h eld at the home of Fran (Mosely ) Purdum. We enjoyed " HaqJpy Hour" chatting and nibbling until all members and husbands arrived. Afterwards we :had an ole Virginia Ham Buffet dinner with candlelight and flowered tables. In June we m et at Ada Harris Biven's home for installa tio n of officers. Plans being made for a tea or dinner for all the area girls home from college. This way we can know our collegiate sisters better and they can in turn know how an alumnae chapter operates. Also planned a swimming party and picnic for A~T families and new alumnae members. Our annual Richmond Panhellenic Rush ee Tea :was held in August. We a:lways enjoy ta lking to potential sisters. In November Panh ellenic holds its annual " Open House." Each sorority group sells "their ware"m ostly items they h ave made. Proceeds go to local philanthropy proj ects.

St. Louis Visited by National President t THE February business meeting was held at the home of Ba rbara Cordes. In M arch we went to Beverly Arnott's Ito me for our business meeting and at this 47

meeting the final plans were made for our progressive dinner in April. · This is always looked forward to by everyone. Elizabeth Wilson served delicious salads. Then on to the main course at Meredith Hinshaw's home. We finally arrived, after going around the neighborhood several times, at Margaret Orf's home for dessert. If someone didn't get lo t going from o ne 'home to another, it wou ldn't be a progressive dinner. The annual meeting in M ay was a t Mrs. S. Carl Robinson's home. Mrs. Peterson was here a nd we enjoyed her visit very much . She knows now how much we like to eat. It seems as if we do a lot of it whenever we get t oge ther. Our new officers are: Carol Willman, president ; Doris Koshelnick, vice president ; Betty Alles, treasurer; J acq ueline Hudson, recording secretary; Barbara Cordes, corresponding secretary; Carolyn Alexander, historian; Beverly Amott, chaplain· and Opal Nauman, editor. On June 16 about sixteen of our members attended a luncheon and card party in Alice Vit's back yard. Everyon e brought a white elephant to be used as a prize. There was a business meeting at the !home of Doris Koshelnick on June 26. Dessert was served at 8 p.m. Doris was presiding officer because our new president, Carol Willman, was away at school working on h er Master's Degree. A beautiful quilt was raflled off at this meeting. It was made by Mrs. Blankenrneister, the mother of one of our members. We held a swimming party for "mama and the kids" in July, a repeat of last year's enjoyable swimming party.-OPAL NAUMAN.

Washington Sees Cancer Film t ALTHOUGH our eleventh anniversary was really in April, we celebrated a wee bit early-in February- when we met at the horne of Meta Ray Sewell. It was at her house that the first meeting of the group was held, in 1948! Edith Elliott was cohostess for the session. Our March meeting, with Dorothy Gates, our president, as hostess, featured an educational film on cancer, courtesy of the American Cancer Society. The April "social" took the form of a bridge and canasta party at the home of Mary Louise Doyle. If the truth must be told, there was more "gabbing" than card playing! · In the absence of our president who was hospitalized, Margaret Bowers, ou r vicepresident, very ably conducted the May meeting which was h eld at Margaret Basilone's. Officers for the coming year were duly elected and installed. Charlotte Douglas wa hoste for our June gathering and fifteen were pre ent for a



delightful pot-luck supper. The exchange of recipes played an important role during the evening! The Northern Virginia Panhellenic Orientation Tea on June 28 ended our activities for the 1958-1959 year. However, since few of our girls leave the capital area for the summer, we anticipate seeing each other off and on during July and August-MARY LoursE DoYLE.

Wichita in Style Show <\; THE Wichita Alpha Sigma Tau Alums

winter and spring months were full of different types of meetings. One meeting Mrs. Thomas A. Gore, Revlon representative, gave an informal talk on application of cosmetics. Mrs. Gore is a member of the Alpha Tau alum group here in Wichita. This spring we helped with the Wichita Panhellenic style show and the annual Panhellenic spring rush tea. Several of our girls went to Emporia on State Day and really enjoyed seeing the Emporia chapte·r and many of our old friends. Our last June m eeting was our annual family picnic at the public park in Wichita. The husband and children enjoyed themselves as much as the members.- SHIRLEY RAE GoRE.

On Relaxation ;.\; THERE are many lost arts ·that have succumbed to the battering of time. But there is one art that has succumbed to the battering pressures and hurry of modern living. That is the art of relaxation. Just being completely relaxed ( in other words being shamelessly lazy) is something that has gone out of fashion. Most .people just don' t have the time. Even when modem America enjoys its leisure time, it ha to be busy. There's TV, movies, outdoor recrea-

tion, al l sorts of th ings to help one relax. But we'd like to see a revival of the old fashion method of relaxation .... just sitting, thinking and rocking. Perhaps if more persons took time to revive this old art someone would, whi•le they're sitting and rocking, think of a way to solve the world's problems and maybe even a better way to relax.- From the TRIANGLE of Sigma Sigma Sigma
