Maxine Graflage, Anchor Editor, Retires froll1 Office ~

MAXINE GRAFLAGE (Mrs. Francis B.), St. Louis alumna, editor of the ANCH OR for the past seven years, is relinquishing her job as chief spelling corrector and deleter of dangling participles to give more of her time to her full-time teaching position a nd the preparation of more apple pies for her famil y of four- a change which her husband and chi ld ren await with the eagerness of true gourmets. Maxine returned to teaching four years ago and has been sandwiching in the compilation of the ANCH OR with sandwiches for supper ever since, she says. This coincided with the advent of a college educa tion for child number one. She really loves the work of being an editor, tribulations and all. The Alpha Sigma Tau ANCHOR has become almost a third child in the family. "I'm going to miss it all, especially that bridge table that is covered with what appears to be litter for three months at a time," she declares. "And nobody dares straighten it up. Preparing the ANCHOR is something like making pancakes for breakfast- you can't stop flipping till you're finished , and then you can flop down yourself. On the ANCHOR work table there are piles of ingredients that would most certainly cause literary indigestion were they confused. Readers have a definite craving to see their names under the right picture, and that is that! One doesn' t put away the hundreds of photos and millions of words until the 'baby is put to bed', meaning that the book is sadd le stitched and handed over to Uncle Sam's couriers." Our recent editor says she has enjoyed working on the ANCHOR so much, because in our organization there is less use of the word "No" than of "Yes." Whenever she asked for contributions she was pretty sure to get them . She has become quite proud of the many

love ly girls whose pictures she pasted up as queens and campus leaders. M axin e Graflage has had a divided career. After gradua ting from Harris T eachers College in St. Louis Missouri, she taught for fi ve years one of which was in a boarding school for high school girls at the Ursuline Academ y. At the Academy he taught a conglomera tion of subj ects, including shorthand, physica l edu ca tion a nd Eng lish . And she directed two operettas. But she h ad a hankering to enter the adYertising fi eld, so she learned the necessary mechanics of this profession and landed feet first in a department store as a n advertising copy writer. H ere she churned up copy for severa l years. M eanwhile she met and married her wonderful husband, Fra ncis B., who is an engineer for the T elephone Company. Their two children K aren and Steve, are the basic cause of all their sweat, tears and loving labor. Karen is a junior at Indiana University, majoring in music. (Karen played for the St. Louis convention and proved to be a delightful and promlSlng young artist. ) Steve, at nine, is embarked on music and is making progress in his breathless struggle with a tenor sax. Maxine has a deep interest in music, too, and has been a soloist at Central Presbyterian Church for 12 years. Among her other hobbies are swimming, tennis (which is getting to be a puffy sport ), golf (nine holes ), and cub scout leadership (a nice quie ting, after-school experience ). She a nd her husband have recently joined a ballroom dancing class to check up on what has happened to the fox trot. She will miss typing and pasting up your activities, but will read all about it in the next ANCHOR which is going to be in good hands- those of our lovable Sue McBee.

About the Pine Mountain Settlelllent School (An Alpha Sigma Tau National Social Service Project) Dear Friends of Pine Mountain Settlement School: My husband and I were privileged to visit the children of the Pine Mountain Settlement School in their classes, to share their lunch daily, to speak to groups of them, to play games with them on the playground. Before our stay ended, we had earned their confidence and their affection. In their games they chose us to be It ; they argued over who should stand beside us ; they urged us to come back. In some ways the children of Pine Mountain are like other children. They are bright. They are eager to learn. (Fourth and fifth graders, when I talked to them in the library about writing, asked me penetrating, keen questions.) They are beautifully courteous. They love singing, and playing games, and having fun. In one way, however, they are unlike any other group of children I have ever seen, and it is this difference that makes the memory of them haunting. Most of them are on a dead end street. Their mountains are impoverished. Farming, except for subsistence farming on bits and pieces of land pinched between high mountains, is gone. Sheep raising is gone. Most of the coal mining is gone. The big trees have all been lumbered. The creeks are many, but industry has found no way to harness them productively. A few roads are being built, but roads cannot solve the problem of a people without the means of livelihood. THE ANCHOR

Meanwhile, what of the bright, eager, appreciative children? Pine Mountain Settlement School offers them the best that they know. Because the school is operated cooperatively by the Pine Mountain Corporation and Harlan County, all children in th e area share in the unusual advantages that th e school, through the contributions of money that you have been making, has to offer: the services of an able, dedicated director; a faculty recruited by the director and his staff and in love with teaching the Pine Mountain children; the finest library in the area, voluntarily staffed by Mrs. Rogers and assistants (the children read an average of 52 books a year ) ; hot lunches of nutritious food, attractively served (and none of it wasted, as I saw with my own eyes ) ; and enough room to run, skip, to play, and, most of all, to learn. My husband and I have thought much of these children and of their future. Many persons and many agencies are working on their aggravating problems of existence, of education, of becoming the fine men and women they are capable of becoming. Meanwhile, they need help to get the sort of education that on ly Pine Mountain Settlement School offers. Perhaps because they are in a peculiar sense my own people, I feel especially anxiou about them. But is it not true that they belong to all of us? Surely they belong to all people everywhere who love children, who recognize these particu lar children as the greatest natural resource of the mountain , .3

and who want them to have a fighting chance in the world. A fighting chance is all they need. As you plan for Christmas, please think of th ese Pin e Mountain children. "I was hungry," I seem to hear them saying- hungry for the good education, for the good life

which Pine Mountain Settlement School strives so hard to give them. You can do much to satisfy their hunger by mailing a check today. Please make it as generous as you can. Sincerely yours, REBECCA CAUDILL AYARS

What is a Pledfe By Carol Buzolits, Alpha Alpha t So MEWHERE between the period of being an independent and that of becoming an active comes the fun-loving, hopeless stage of a pledge. Being a pledge can be one of the most valu able experiences that a co llege coed could possibly have . She is blessed with this honor the night she excitedly enters the suite and feels th e arms of her new sisters fold around her and has a pledge hat plopped on her head. She keeps her sorority close to her heart for the rest of her life. Pledges are a motley bunch coming in all sizes, shapes, temperaments and creeds. For m a ny months a pledge dreams of sorority life and crea tes mental images of wha t it would be like. But after twelve weeks of pledging, she feels she has learned the values of this sacred sisterhood . All her dreams have come tru e and she rea lizes that all are striving for the same objectives- fri endship, loyalty, sisterhood . A pledge can be one of the greatest nuisances in the world . Just when an active thinks sh e's set her in her place, she turns aro und a nd deserves two more dem erits. Or perhaps the day an active has four tests, a pledge runs up and asks her for a coke date. Actives ca n't get rid of pledges once they have taken them . They can blot them out of their sight, but not out of their mind . They can lock them out of the suite, but not out of their hearts. A pi dg is obedience with a p ledge book tn her hand, beau ty with a go ld hat on her


head, power with a pledge padd le in her h a nd, formalit y with a "Good morning, Miss Active" and innocence with a page of dem erits. A pledge likes walk-outs, record hops, pledge songs, trade parties, coke dates, the pledge dance, dessert smorgasbord, study table, ru h parties, turn-about day, the sweetheart song and fun night. A pl edge dislikes the pledge test, a pledge book, effici ency points, cleaning the suite, goldfish, raw eggs and actives who give demerits. W' ho else can cause an active more irrita,tion, frustration, torment, happiness, misery and la ughter? Who else will clean the suite without pay, volunteer to help on a committee, attend the pledge dance, compose a pledge song, flunk a pledge test, act up at study tab le or present a ceremony to honor her sorority mother? But who else is always ready and willing to help her sorority in any way she can? Who else, but a sorority sister, will stand by you when your dreams have ¡ been shattered? Who else can you call on at a ny hour of the d ay or night to nurse a hurt, a nose bleed, a wounded pride or a broken heart ? Who el e can you depend on at an time, anywhere, for anything? A sorority ju t houldn' t be a ororit with out it wonderful, nai: e, alwa s lo a! dedicated, patient pledges who can melt our heart when they open the door and a •, "When can " e go acti e?"

Diary of a Professional Mother By Mary Ann Wendt Black, Nu t June 13: MIKE is doing we ll. He is three

weeks old today. This is our eighth wedding anniversary. We aren' t going out to celebrate because an evening "on the town" is coming later this month. Eric, our energetic boy, and the twin girls are sleeping after a happy bedtime with Daddy. It doesn't seem possible that our tenth baby is under our roof. Robby came to us last April. He was a darling redhead who won the hearts of all the neighbors. Chris joined us ten days before Robby's adoption. We watched him grow from his fourth day until he was abo ut two months old. H e was beautiful when he left for adoption . That summer we attended opera, went camping and rested . Lori was such a bea utifu l gir l, I was surprised when she moved. She looked so much like a doll. She was with us just nine days m August. Karen arrived when she wa six


days old. I had planned a party for that night and relatives came just ha lf an hou r after she did . What a day! In her medical check-ups there was an indication that she might have a thyroid deficiency. This could result in mental retardation, physical deformity or other undesirable things. We kept her four months-waiting and worrying, and loving her. She was finally given her medica l approval, and left just before Christmas: What a present for some famil y! J ack was our stocking filler. H e came three days before Christmas. I had asked the welfare department to let us have another baby right away if Karen left before Christmas. J ack was one of those babies who eat e ery two hours, and can't relax in a noi hou ehold such as ours. We humored him and loved him, and in abou t two week h h d nother redhead who captured adjusted. THE A


hearts at a glance. Those smiles a baby parcels out at around five weeks are worth the two-hour feedings and sleepy gropings of a mother in the wee hours. We had Jack about four months, too. The welfare people are so careful about placing babies in families with the right physical, temperamental, and educational setting. They tell me they try to match the adoptive parents to the natural parents as much as possible. After quite a search, the right parents for Jack were found in Utah. We take turns naming our babies if a name isn't a lready on record . The next boy was to be Andrew. When I got a phone call about the next baby, it seemed significant that his name was Andy (Baby Boy Anderson ) . H e was two months old, had already been in two foster homes and had emotional problems. H e was extremely tense and easily frightened . When he left at four months, he was a happy, handsome baby. I felt we had really accomplished something with him- not just had the fun of a sweet baby. The day after he left, my two daughters (five-year-old twins ) and I attended a Mother-Daughter banquet at our church. They were as thrilled as Mommy when I was given a corsage in recognition of my work with these babies. The speaker quoted that Bible passage, "W hatsoever ye shall do unto the least of these, ye have done it unto Me." I'm sure we a ll felt a genuine response as we looked around at the little ones given into our care by one means or another. Mike came the following Monday. H e was like all six-day-old boys, but with a probl em that might require surgery if it doesn't take care of itself. This may mean he wi ll be diffi cult to place for adoption. I hope not. Almost every day a I do things with him I say, "Your new mommy will like that smile. Your new daddy will be so proud of you." Of course these remarks are more for m y benefit. Just the sound of my voice is for the baby. I have to be constantly aware that I am just "baby sitting." The love a mother feels for her child has to be something simi lar to this. If the child is a possession the mother can't give up, her love is not the right kind. I like to think that a mother's main job is THE ANCHOR

to prepare her children to do without herto leave her. I prepare babies to leave sooner. June 14: The welfare office calls. They have a baby boy they would like to place with me . He was born June 13. He is part Japanese. Can I take him in a day or two? I consider it. They must be desperate if they ask me to take a second baby now. I have told them I think one is all I can handle and not fe el too pressed. During the summer many foster families are on trips, or simpl y take a vacation from babies. A day or two would mean tomorrow (Friday- Eric's birthday party ) or Monday. I agree to take the baby Monday. Sorority meeting is Saturday, too. George will be at an archery tournament, so I'd better not leave two baqies with the sitter. Born June 13! That was yester-

-Dr. Ruth Griffith publishes book.


DR. R uTH E. G RIFF ITH, associa te professor of biology at H ood Co llege, has begu n a nother research project on pla nk ton in loca l wa ters. Dr. Griffith has been a ward ed a research gra nt by th e N atura l R esources Institute of the U ni versity of M aryland for a study of hea ted entrained p lankton of the Potom ac Ri ver. She will study the effect of going through the condenser of a hydroe lectric p la n t on the river on pla nt and a nim a l life. This follows her recen tly comp leted project on " Phytopla nkton of C hesapea ke Bay,' the res ults of which he put in to a n illu trated guide of that title vvhich was published 9

jointly by Hood College and the Maryland Department of Research and Education. Dr. Griffith has previously published studies of plankton in Lake Michigan and in the Monocacy River. Preliminary investigation on the Potomac project was begun in October. With her research assistant, H ood Senior M yrna Steinkamp, Dr. Griffith wi ll be making observations at about two week intervals. They will compare samples collected from water just before it enters the power plant and just before it returns to the main strean1 of the Potomac, and will record the temperature with each sample. The specimens will be compared to detect physiological differences, ability to reproduce, and photosynthetic and respiratory activity. The research grant covers the cost of the necessary equipment, including a boat for collection of the samples. Laboratory analysis of the specimens wi ll be conducted in Hood's H odson Science building. Dr. Griffith sees the project as "an opportunity to determine the effects of heating on the basic productivity of waters. Plankton are one of the beginning links in the food chain for fish and other high forms of life," she explained. "They are a lso often perported to be the likely savior of our human nutritiona l demands," she said, referring to recent studies of algae as a source of human food. Her interest in aquatic life is centered around this "urgent need for increased investigation of the biology of plankton in our productive coastal and estuarine waters." She said that because of the dependence of higher forms of life on these microscopic plants and anima ls, man must understand more full y the demands he can place upon them . "It is imperative that we explore this important area and share our find ings," she said. Her publication of "Phytoplankton of Chesapeake Bay," which she describes as an illustrated guide to the genera, was designed to enable the accurate identification of plankton, a factor basic to an understanding of them. It is the only guide wh ich includes a number of different phyla of phytoplankton 10

in the same publication. Written with a minimum of technical terminology, it is m demand by biology teachers and students as well as research scientists. Dr. Griffith came to Hood in 1954. She is a graduate of K ansas State Teachers College with the M.S. degree from the State College of Washington and the Ph.D. from Torthwestern niversity. In addition to her full-time teaching schedule at Hood, she has been a research associate at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory at Solomons, Md., since 1956 where he has conducted a number of research projects. She taught at Wells College and at the niversity of ew H ampshire, and was a teaching assistant at State College of Washington and Northwestern before joining the Hood faculty. Dr. Griffith has participated in the N ationa! Science Foundation Institute for College Teachers of Biology and was elected secretary of the Atlantic Estuarine R esearch Society in April, the first woman to hold an office in that Society. She is also currently president of the local chapter of the American Association of University Professor . She has held this posit ion for two years. She is listed in "American M en of Science" and "Leaders in American Science," and Ia t summer was selected to attend the ational Science Foundation Institute for College Teachers of Animal Ecology at the University of Colorado. In July, 1962, Dr. Griffith received a ATO fe llowship to an international institute at the University of Louisvi lle.

Collegiate News Alpha Receives Centerpiece ~

SECOND semester activities for Alph a chapter began with the opening of form a l rush. W e chose the theme of "Sleepy T au H aven" a nd carried this idea through a ll of our rush parties. The girls of Alpha worked hard on new and unusual name tags and displays to help represent our sorority. Our efforts yielded us eleven wonderful new pledges: Cookie Collins, Ruth D e M eulenaere, Pa t Eberhardt, P a u I e n e Fucinari, Joyce Go lding, Kay Kundrick, Sue Mitroka, Pat Nichols, Judith Paslaski, Gail Phillips and Joanne Weed . The pledge class was very proud to present a permanent centerpiece to Alpha chapter to be used for rush parties and for forma l teas. Following initiation on M ay 12, the pledges were honored with a beach party held at the home of Mike W arner. After initiation the best pledge award of a traveling lava liere was presented to J oyce Golding. Our C andlelight Dinner Dance, which was another big event of the semester for the girls of Alpha, was held at the Elmwood Casino in Windsor, Ontario. Alpha is especially proud of Sister Sue Barker, former chapter pledge master, who won the sorority scholarship. Sue is also a member of Kappa D elta Pi a na tiona l honorary education fraternity. With the ending of the semester, the T a us h ave many happy and wonderful memories to look back on. W e are sorry to be losing o man y of our sisters through gradua tion,


but we are looking forward to a new emester with many new sisters to carry on the trad.ition of Alpha Sigma T au .- K AREN ERIK SEN

Beta's Sweet Shoppe ~

THE BETAS began the pring erne ter by focusing full attention on a uccessful rush p rogram headed by Carolyn M oore. At our first par ty, "T au Sweet Shoppe," we greeted rushees with tasty ice cream cones and lively sorority songs led by our advisor, Miss D enman. M ary Lou V oge l was general ch airman of the party. The second rush party filled our house with actives and rushees decked out in slumber apparel. J o R umminger supervised the effective decorations, refreshments (donuts and cocoa ) , and en tertainment in which rushees and T aus divided into groups which presented bed-time skits. " Emerald R oom," the title of our third par ty, fo llowed a night club theme. Our guests were treated to "Kiddie Cocktai ls," snacks and top talent. The party, directed by M olly Eng lish, came to a clima;x when we serenaded and pre ented each rushee with a yellow rose. Our efforts proved extremely worthwhile fo r we gained seventeen wonderful pledges: Karen Amejka, Sally Benedict Dorothy Carruthers, Diane D avidson, M arilyn F ranci JoAnn H ack, Ann H aTkin Carol L aMotte Bonnie M yers, M ary Lu Peter Peagy Potharlotte vin, Judy Samson Pegai hine, ponseller Pat qui re herrie tafford and



Pam V anDyne. During open ru sh, Joni LaMourie and Peggy Bailey joined th e pledge class to make a grand tota l of nineteen. JoAnn Heck received the Be t Pledge Award. Peggy Potvin was president of the spring pledge class. '1\fe held our annual " Mom's Weekend" in the midst of pledging activities. The mothers enjoyed a brief coffee hour before heading toward the bowling alleys and bridge tables. After a taste of sports, we returned to the house and indulged in a delicious buffet dinner. Evening activities included "twisting" by the moms, a water ballet presentation, skits, group singing and nightly tours of the campus. As the curfew hou rs approached, we serenated our mothers and gave them CMU mugs as favors. The weekend came to a close the next morning (a fter the moth ers had struggled in our bunk beds!) with breakfast and church. Stan K enton became the ta lk of the campus as Greek Week came into view. Mr. K enton provided the best in jazz and dancing music for the annual Greek W eek J am Session and dance. The festive week began with the Panhellenic-I.F.C . Sing, Betas placing second with our southern spiritu a ls. We placed in every event we entered, winning firsts in the Walk-a-thon, pie-ea ting contest, and jump-rope competition and third place in the Swim M eet! In M ay, we held a steak fry at Sue Breidenstein's cottage on Crystal Lake in place of our usua l house party. The weather didn't fu lly cooperate, but new actives still followed the traditiona l ceremony of th e lake ! It wa a day of fun , skits, songs and pl enty of food delicately prepa red by our host "Bi?; Joe." We were deeply grieved upon the recent death of our beloved patroness, Mrs. Fred Bush, a woman who had given so much of her time and life to the Alpha Sigma T a u Sorority. W e presented an art book to the Panh ellenic library in her memory. H er husband gave us both a painting and her sorority pin as a bond of deep friendship. W e decided to honor a worthy girl each semester by giving her the privilege of wearing Mrs. Bush's pin on formal occasions. Because of THE ANCHOR

the endless hours of effort and time J o R umminger has contributed to our group, we chose her to begin this new tradition of the Beta Chapter . M any honors earned by Betas brightened the spring semester. Gail Weckesser won both the scholarship improvement paddle and high scholastic cup! Sue Breidenstein and M arilyn J akad were two of the nine girls on campus tapped for Senior W omen's Honor Board, M a ri lyn being elected Vice-President. Th e two girls are a lso members of K appa D elta Pi. M ary Petoskey was elected to the offi ce of Senior C lass Secretary, while H ope Gambino won the Treasurer's position. Pam VanD yne will be th e Vice-President of her sophomore class in the fa ll. M ary M ead becam e the new secretary of the entire Student Body. Girls with 3.00 averages in the fall were Sue Breiden tein, Lind a H aven, M arilyn Jakad, Peggy Sadler, Fran Steiner, Cathie Palo and Bonnie W a lker. Peggy T wining and C harlotte Sponseller both won the honor of ROTC Cadet Court for the annual Military Ball. A beauty award was al o presented to H ope Gambino, Sigma T au Gamma White R ose Queen. L ynette Lucas had the singing and acting lead in the campus presentation of " Kiss M e K ate." M ary Lou Vogel was voted Sigma Phi Epsilon's Friend ly N eighbor. It has certainly been a successful year. The Betas were as busy as usua l and will be an ticipa ting another wonderful semester in the fa ll.

On Sunday, April 29, all dressed in white, we initiated our twelve pledges. After the ceremony, a banquet was held at the Dutch Inn, Mill Hall, Pennsylvania. The first big party the new actives attended was our "South Sea I sland" party. The girls wore sarongs and our dates dressed like sailors. The favors for our dates were sailor hats, bearing the words "Strand ed with an A~T." At the entrance to our island, each sister put a lei around her date's neck. Following the Polynesian custom, we ate on the floor. Fruit cocktail served in grapefruit halves was the main dish. A "Spring Garden Party" was <Tiven for th e sisters by the new actives.

Theta Dreams Come True ~

SPRING semester, 1962, has passed as quickly as a dream. For Thetas, it started out as a " dream." Rush was number one on our list of activities. The theme for our first party was "Sleepy T au H eaven ." Th anks to the ingenuity of M argaret Aboud, our rush cha irman, and K ay Kuttner, her assistant, rushees were quickl y put at ease in the drea my atmosphere of a room sprinkled with smiling, paper angels and scattered with paj ama-clad A~T's. While the girls enjoyed angel-food cake and ice cream, we entertained them with a skit in keeping with the mood. There are four things, we said, that every coed dreams of: good grades, boyfriends ga lore, world travel, and becoming a member of Alpha Sigma Tau. E ach of these four dreams was drama tized by a Theta. Some of th e stardust of the evening helped to bring our three, lovely pledges to us. They are : Sa lly Baker, an education sophomore; Diane Edwards, a speech-education junior; and Andrea Muhl, an art-education sophomore. We welcomed our pledges by treating them to a pizza party. Stardust and dreams come true will make this past semester especially memorable in the hearts of four Th etas. Diane K ajkowski and Shirlee M arsha ll were beautiful brides. (Diane is now Mrs. Howard H ardy and Shirlee is Mrs. Romie Shaw. ) Cynthia Grochol ki and Marsha Bachenko were both engaged to be married. The highlight of all social events at Wayne State was the Pan H e! Ball, which was held a t D etroit's most modern convention area, Cobo H a ll. For weeks before the Ba ll, the entire campus was decorated with colorful posters - a ll designed and constructed by Thetas. For us A~T's, the Ba ll was preceded by a cockta il party at Margaret Aboud's home and followed by an oriental dinner party at Victor Lim's restaurant in downtown D etroit.


In May, Wayne State's organizations joined forces to raise money for the n ew Student Center that the University is pla nning to build. The result was the "Fun F estival" which took place a t the largest amusem ent park in D etroit. W e were granted p ermission to " take over the pa rk" for one weekend. Groups were on the runway drumming up business for rides a nd contests, selling pennants, supervising contests and having loads of fun! Theta cha pter was m charge of a Minia ture Golf Contest. At the close of the contest, we awarded a trophy to th e best "minia ture golfer. " On June 12, we were dinner guests a t the home of our advisor, Mrs. H arrington. W e took that opportunity to show our a pprecia tion of h er consta nt thoughtfu lness a nd helpfulness by presenting Mrs. H arrington with a n Anchor pin, ma king her a n honorary member of A~'T. We also noted tha t two of our girls would soon be reaping the rewards of their four- year stay a t the U niversity. Barbara Bestrom will be a m edica l technician and Ernita Schachingger, our past president, will be joining the ra nks of grade school teach ers. We presented Barba ra a nd Ernita with lavaliere necklaces.- Yvo NNE CAPONE

Omicron Wins Intramural Trophy ;\:. TH E OMICRON chapter of Alpha Sigma T au was really busy du ring the second semester. The semester began with rushing. Omicron welcomed five new girls to their chapter. They were Frances Thompson, Lynda Miller, Betty Ingles, Pat Stickler, and Dana Day, who was our second semester be t pledge. Our most exciting even t wa the annual spring formal. It wa held at the Greenbri r H otel at White Sulphur Spring West Virainia. Pat Trail was voted K appa igma K appa sweetheart and J ohn mith was voted Alpha Sigma Tau wee theart for the dane . Omicron wa sorry to lo e our nior and we gave them a enior part . For ea h air! graduating, an und rcla sman imitat d h r



most outstanding characteristic or something unusual that had happened to her during her life at Concord and in Omicron. The patronesses of Omicron gave the girls a wonderful dinner at the home of Mrs. Hawley Wells in Athens. The meal was delicious and the girls enjoyed talking about Alpha Sigma Tau, past and present. Alpha Sigma Tau held its annual alumnae dinner at the Town ' n Country Restaurant in Princeton. Members of the Bluefield, Beckley and Princeton-Athens chapters attended. Discussed were the various methods of raising money for a sorority house for Omicron. Some projects for this were White Elephant sales, rummage sales and candy sales. Also, the chapters gave Miss Mae R. Hunter, our retiring sponsor, a farewell gift. Miss Hunter presented the group with a speech of thanks and of her life with Omicron of Alpha Sigma Tau. However, the most expensive gift could never express the thanks a nd gratitude to Miss Hunter for the kindness, patience and understanding given Omicron in her many years of guidance. In our sports, Omicron was the best. We won the annual Intramural trophy for the fourth year straight in a row. Also, we are proud to announce that Cathy Patterson was chosen varsity cheerleader for Concord. To wind up one of the best years Omicron has had, it was announced that our own Cathy Ramsey was Valedictorian for the 1962 graduating class of Concord College. We are very proud of Cathy, who maintained a 4.00 average throughout her four years at Concord. All the girls contributed towards the great success of Omicron for this past second semester. With hard work, enthusiasm and togetherness the girls have had a wonderful year they will never forget.- CAROLYN WALTHALL

The Pi's in Action THE ACTIVES of Pi Chapter, the largest sorority on the campus of Harris Teachers College in St. Louis, Missouri, began a very busy and most exciting spring semester by being entertained at a cute Disneyland party



given by the pledge class. Being true "Alphas," many of the girls were found very busily working and helping with the registration of Freshmen. On February 18, we had a very full day as we had initiation of our pledges, installation of nine officers, and pin pledging in our Student Union building on the campus. We are thrilled to announce our eight new active members- Mary Ann Fields, Barbara Frey, Janet Huffendick, Marilyn Lesh, Wilma Lovan, Pat Poehling, Pat Schockley, and Faye Schaedlick. W e were very happy to receive our new pin pledge, Sharon Hoppe. At class elections on campus, Faye Schaedlick served as secretary of the Freshman II Class, Barbara Frey served as president of the Sophomore I Class, Joyce Fuller served as president of the Sophomore II Class, JoAnn Ebersohl served as secretary of the Sophomore II C lass, and Louise Meserve served as treasurer of the Sophomore II Class. Lucy Binder, Beverly Coibion and Darlys Moore served as class representatives to our Student Congress. On February 18, we were all very proud of our cand id ate, Carol Seib, who represented Alpha at a "Sweetheart Prom" held by another sorority on campus. The biggest event of the term was our dance titled "Emerald Evening," held on March 17, St. Patrick's Day, at the American Legion Post 154. We decorated in a "S t. Pat's" theme, with shamrocks of all sizes placed in every imaginable spot. The ceiling was decorated with approximately three thousand feet of green and white crepe paper streamers, which we wove in and out. Our tab les were so arranged around the room in a horseshoe shape, that access to the dance floor was very easy from any particular spot in the room. The backdrop for our band was a huge shamrock, seven feet by nine feet. This a lone took hours to construct and we then had the problem of getting it to our dance. It was really quite a sight to just ee us struggling with it. The framework was made of chicken wire. To form the shamrock we used thousands of white paper napkins which we put through the chicken wire and then


fluffed up. The outline was made using this same method but using green crepe paper. We put a huge green Alpha Sigma Tau on the white shamrock. Our shamrock made a very appropriate background for the crowning of a King and Queen. To the King we presented a nice trophy and to the Queen we presented a precious charm bracelet engraved with the date of this memorable occaswn. March 28, the Panhellenic Organization sponsored a Scholarship Tea, at which time Alpha received third place. March 31, all the Alphas enjoyed a joint party with Lambda Beta L ambda Fraternity. April 16 began our spring vacation and every moment was once again filled. One of the events was a theatre party to see "West Side Story." We managed to have an interesting cultural m ee ting under the leadership of our cultural chairman, Patsy Gi lcrease, in addition to our business meeting. We were also very busy practicing for "Jabberwock," a biennial production sponsored by another sorority. It is similar to "Skit Night" which we sponsor on the alternate years. The main theme was "Around the World." The theme we chose was Hawaii. Our skit was titled "Hawaiian Honeymoon." It concerned a very "school-minded" professor named Harry, played by Patsy Gilcrease, and his bride n amed Harriet, played by Sharon Gulli, spending their honeymoon in our new state of Hawaii. H e was more concerned with such things as " the state flower of Hawaii is the hibiscus." To him, love was strictly for love-sick adolescents. Harry refused to hula even after being greeted by a lovely Hawaiian girl, played by JoAnn Ebersohl, and a H awaiian boy, played by Mary Ann Fields. Upon being invited to hula, he sang "I'm Just a Guy Who Can't Hula." This was a song of our own version which he sang to the melody of " I Can't Say No ." The young couple then watched a chorus of Alphas dressed as girls a nd boys as they danced a nd sang "Hawaiian War Chant" in the native version. H arry was "moved" and, too, began doing the hula, much to everyone's amazement. The final song was another original. Our scenery wa


very effective with palm trees, a grass shack, flowers, costumes and lighting. We also decided on our new spring outfits. This was quite a decision. Our new outfit is a dark forest green, shirtwaist dress. On April 27, we were proud of our Alpha, Mary Ann Fields, who represented us at a "Blue Hawaii Dance" sponsored by another sorority on our campus. May 6, we enjoyed our Parent's Banquet h eld at Lemmon's R estaurant. We honored our parents by treating them to a Sunday dinner, followed by a nice program conducted by Shirley Hillebrand. We were a lso happy to welcome back Tamiko ozawa a repledge. On M ay 18, Darlys Moore represented Alpha as a maid at White Rose Dance sponsored by our brother fraternity, Sigma Tau Gamma. On May 26, J oAnn Ebersohl was a maid at one of the dances held by one of the other fraternities on campus. Again on the eveni ng of June 8, the Ia t day of finals, Alpha was represented by Faye Schaedlick, as a maid at a "Splash" given by one of the sororities on campus. June 10, finals were completed and we honored our "alums" at an "alum party" h eld at our Student Union Building. At this time we bid farewell to our alum representative, Mrs. James Alexander, and welcomed our new alum representative, J ackie Hudson. We presented each with a small gift and an orchid to show our appreciation for a ll their help. The favors consisted of sma ll sachets which we made in the form of tiny green and yellow h ats. June 12, we ended our semester with a pajama party. We bid farewell to our travelers, such as Rosemarie Vassalo who went to Florida, Louise Meserve who went to Kansas Ci ty, K ansas, and Marilyn Lesh and JoAnn Ebersoh l who went to the World's Fair in Seattle, V\ ashington. Summer plans include rush meeting directed by our rush chairman, Be erly Coibion. We plan to meet once a week in the homes of different o-irls. Other e ent include a rummage sa le and a "watermelon slurp" for Alpha and their date . V\ e anxiously await the convention, her in ur own


city and wish the best of luck to our Qu een candidate, Jeanne Trautwein. Alpha has been well represented thi term on our campus. Lucy Binder was a m ember of the "P.E. Minors Club," as well a the club's treasurer. Sharon Gulli enjoyed singing and traveling with the Spanish Singing Group. Shirley Hillebrand was pledged to Beta Beta Beta, the Honorary Biologica l Fraternity. Janet Huffendick was a member of the Girl's Glee Club and J oyce Fuller was a m ember of the Vocal Ensem ble. We were very ha ppy and proud to have Wilma Lovan on the Honor Roll. JoAnn Litto, J oAnn Ebersohl, Marilyn Lesh and Sue Gerlt were members of our band . W e wish good luck to our three apprentices- Lucy Binder, Pat Gi lcrea e and Sharon Gulli. W e regret losing Pat Shockley who is leaving school, but a re happy to welcome back Ju a nita Tunnell. M a ny of the Alphas are in sum mer school. Though some of us m ay be separated we will continue to represent Alpha Sigma Tau to the best of our a bility, each in her own way. -

The party was held in the circle ballroom of the beau tiful Lake Texoma Lodge n ar Dura nt. The sma ll tables were arranged in a semi-circle around the stage which was th e foca l point of the evening. To the tables we added bouquets of ye llow roses whi ch served as center pieces. For favors we gave the traditional A~T garters, sachet umbrellas made of our colors and brandy sniffers which were etched with our greek letters.

American philosophy and confusion caused by trying to mix American and British ideas of revolution with those of the French Revolution, which Dr. Glaser says causes intellectual indigestion.

MANY YEARS ago I discovered a delightful book written by an American colored woman Juanita Harri on, and entitled My Great Wide Beautiful World. Juanita, born in poverty in a crowded cabin in Mis i i ppi, had a few months of chooling before he was ten. Then began an endless round of cooking, wa hing and ironing in an overburdened household-labour that might have daunted a grown person. But the child, clothed in a woman's ca toff apparel, stiff basque bodice, long skirt, and laced bicycle boots, lived with a bright vision of templed cities in foreign lands, which she had een pictured in the tray pages of a magazine, and dreamed of the day when he her elf would see these far away places. J uanita began her travels when she was sixteen, working as a maid in well-to-do home , and moving from place to p lace as she found employment until her journeying extended to Canada and Cuba. Whenever it was possible, she attended clas e at the Y.W.C.A. at night school, and when she became an accomplished lady's maid, she ambitiously took up the study of Spanish and French. Because of her yearning to see more of the world, Juanita never remained long in one place, though her employers invariably became her friend and raised her salary in the vain hope of keeping so excellent a servant. By carefully saving nearly all of her weekly wage , she finally accumulated eight hundred dollar , only to lose all her avina in a bank failure. Nothing daunted, he aaain began to ave, earning a kind employer invested for her until he had an income of two hundred dollar a year. \ ith thi lender ecurity in re erve, Juanita tarted out to work her wa around th world, and m



the next eight years she lived in twenty-two different countries. Then she settled down to easy, leisurely living in a tent home at Waikiki in Hawaii. Juanita had a true appreciation of the great beauty of our world and of the real worth of the people who inhabit it. Everywhere she found joy and delight in the natural loveliness of the country and in the friendliness of the inhabitants. She loved all mankind and in turn was loved by everyone. This past year I have been privil eged to visit a part of Juanita's great wide beau tiful world. I , too, have found bea uty, charm and inspiration in the cities and countries I visited, and friendly, gracious, hospitable people. Part of my travels gave me a deeper appreciation of our own United States. As I inspected and installed chapters of Alpha Sigma Tau, I enjoyed Pennsylva nia, Missouri, Ohio and ew York in the glorious colors of a utumn, and Michigan, Arkansas, K a nsas, Missouri again, and my own Indiana in the green freshness of Spring. Then, as you know, last winter I spent three wonderful months in lovely Hawaii, the Paradise of the Pacific, with its green clad mountains, deep blue ocean, fragrant flowers, balmy breezes, warm sunshine, brilliant sunsets, romantic moonlight, sweet, haunting music and graceful hula girls. or must I omit California with its many beautiful and interesting ights, especially Forest Lawn M emorial Park, resp lendent with towering tree , sweeping la wns, splashing fountains, singing birds, white m arble statuary, small, picturesque churches, th e magnificent " L ast Supper" stained glass window, and the awe-inspiring "C rucifixion," America's largest religious painting. And for sheer enjoyment there are Disney Land a nd Knott's Berry Farm, gay a nd colorfu l a nd bustling with crowds of cheerful, carefree people. And then, just recently- very recently in fact, I was in Athens, Greece- a neverto-be-forgotten Around the World Tour, in the company of interesting, congenial companions including three members of Chi chapter, under the capab le leadership of Dr. Ruth Scarborough, patroness of THE ANCHOR

Chi chapter, and the banquet speaker at the W ashington convention, an experience providing me with a storehouse of rich mem ories for a ll th e years to come. Highlights of the trip were a 5-hour ride on a cool, clean J apanese expres tra in from K yoto to Tokyo, with lofty mountains graced with shrines and old cast les in the background a nd in the foreground Japanese famili es diligently cultivating their mal l, nea t rice paddies, tea gardens, and vegetable plots with hand too ls and water buffalo ; flying a t night into brilliantly lighted Hong Kong, fabulous city of dramatic contrasts, shopping center of the world; Bangkok, Thailand, beautiful city of wide avenues, spacious parks, sparkling fountains, friendly, graciou s people, the scene of Anna and the King of Siam and th e more recent " Th e King and 1"; a 3-day excursion by private car through the countryside a nd villages of India, where 85 % of the people of India live a nd toil under conditions so primitive tha t one could easily imagine he had been tra nsported back centuries in time to the early Bible days; the breathlessly beautiful Taj Mahal at Agra, exquisite tribute of a man's love and devo tion to a lovely woman ; the famous Nile River with its green, fertile delta, a life-giving oasis in the great ex panse of the desert sands; the world-renowned pyramids a nd Sphinx, well remembered pictures in our grade schoo l geography books, now made a reality; the Holy Land- J erusalem, Bethlehem, Bethany, J ericho, D amascu - th e sacred privilege of wa lking where J esu once walked ; the silent, quietly beautiful Dead Sea, th e lowest pot on ea rth ; Istanb ul on the deep blue Bo poru s, the only city in the world astrid e two continents, Europe a nd Asia, with its famous Blue Mosqu e, a nd renowned St. Sophia; and finally, Greece with its lovely hills covered with fragrant pines a nd graceful cyprus, its valleys dotted with shepherds tending their flocks of goats and sheep, with vineyards and olive groves and cotton fields, land tha t has been cu ltivated for centuries by industrious peasants and their patient little donkeys; and spacious Athens, with beautiful modern buildings and wide, clean boulevards, surrounded by hill on top of which st ill stand the stately m arble


AS WE PLEDGE ANEW . .. ruins of the magnificent Acropolis and Parthenon, silent witnesses of the ancient glory of the greatest culture and civilization the world has ever known.

"Great, wide, beautiful, wonderful World, " With the wonderful water round you curled, And the wonderful grass upon your breast, World, you are beautifully dressed. " You friendly Earth, how far do you go, With the wheat fi elds that nod and the rivers that fiow. With cities and gardens and cliffs and isles, And the people upon you for thousands of miles?" w. B. RANDS Not all the sights we saw were beautiful sights by any means. There was ugliness also-the ugliness of poverty and need, of ignorance and want, of filth and disease, of tragedy and despair, of hopelessness and lack of opportunity for a better life. In Calcutta, for instance, the unsanitary conditions of hundreds of poor people are apalling; our hogs and cattle live better than they. The hard, manual labor performed by the men, and even by women, reminds one of the days of Roman slavery. In nearly all the countries there were beggars, usually children, no doubt taught by their parents to ask for "bakshish." Seeing all this deprivation made one feel humb le and gratefu l to be an American, and most selfish to possess so much when so many others have so little. Today we are assembled here in the fourational Convention of the Alpha teenth Sigma Tau sorority to renew our vows of loyalty and allegiance, to plan for the future, and to pledge ourselves anew to those principles and beliefs fundam ental to the abundant life we all desire. First, then, let us pledge anew our faith in God, who has created this majestic world in all its beauty and grandeur for us to use and enjoy. Let us be especially grateful for


our own United States, "one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." Compare our spaciousness with Japan's crowded conditions; the population of Japan is over 93 millions, well over half that of the United States and on less than onetwentieth of the soil. Contrast our fertile fields to Jordan's stony plains and Syria's desert land ; our surplus food supply to India's deficiency, where almost every decade there is a famine and thousands of people die of starvation; our free, compulsory educational system to that of many Asiatic countries where hundreds of children have no schooling; our highly mechanized labor to the primitive methods of Asia; our government required and protected sanitation to the deplorab le, unhealthy conditions of the Asiatic countries. In the light of these existing conditions I have just mentioned, let us pledge anew ourselves, our talents and our resources to the service of mankind so that we may, at lea t in a sma ll way, help to better the lives of those less fortunate than we. ext, let us pledge anew our faith in our fellow men. People the world over have the same needs, the same desires, the same instincts, the same dreams and visions. Everywhere Juan ita H arrison went she found friendly, helpful people. One of the pleasures of my travels and of my work as your National President is meeting people and making friends. God has given us understanding that we may see others in the light of their own background which has made them what they are. If we use this gift of understanding, we can look upon others with compa sion and work toward harmony with our fellow human beings. If we tru t one another, if we expect the be t of every one~ people will rise to our expectations. Thus we sha ll achieve the true brotherhood of man. A we pledge anew our faith in God and in our fellow men, we al o pledge ane\ our faith in the future. If we tru t God and believe in our fellow men, then we mu t believe in spite of the many confu ion and conflicts, the numerou problem and difficulties that confront u in the pre ent, that


truth ~nd r~ght will prevail and some day we may smg w1th Browning's Pippa the refrain: <<Th e years ' at the spring, And day's at the morn; Morning's at seven; The hillside's dew-pearled; Th e lark's on the wing, Th e snail's on the thorn路 God's in His heaven- ' All's rioht with the world!" Our faith in the future includes our faith in_ the fraternity system, which is being assruled today on every side by those who fail to recognize the value and the purpose of Greek organizations. Our very survival is being threatened. Stanley T. Walbank, president of Phi Gamma Delta, in an article in IRAC v1vidly expresses the situation: ' "In a very real sense a crucial hour has arrived in college fraternity life. We find the searchlight of unfavorable criticism turned upon fraternities by various college and university authorities and by public opinion as never before. "Thus the open and powerful challenge confronts us. We are asked the true place and function of fraternities in th e evaluation of sociological change. We are queried: Are fraternities democratic, intellectual, essential, or effective in the educational process? Are fraternities making commensurate contributions to that process? Under what protection and restrictions should fraternities in all fairness be fostered by our sheltering institutions, whether public or private? What is the order of our fealty?" In spite of unsupported statements of uninformed critics the fraternity system is not a dying cause, as the following statistics prove: In the last biennium between PC meetings, November 1959-November, 1961, 112 new sorority chapters were installed and 40 additiona l groups either pledged or colonized. There were 344 new alumnae groups organized during this period. I do not have the figures for fraternities, but I'm sure they prove the same point: Greek organizations are not dying out on college campuses. Mr. Walbank oontinues: "This challenge THE ANCHOR

to our existence is real and urgent. We have the plain duty of speaking the truth and of supporting it by our actions. "Our fraternity is dedicated to democratic principles, to creative effort, to high attainments of leadership and to everything exemp lary associated with the processes of higher education. We are reminded that education is a two-way street. It is the process of opening the mind not only to opportunity, but also to corresponding responsibility. "It follows that fraternities as integral components of the educational fabric are in honor obligated to bear their just responsibilities while sharing the unlimited opportunities that higher education makes available. "Thus our fraternity is pledged, co ll ectively and individually, to incite others to noblest efforts in worthy causes, to widen and deepen life's purposes, to make the fullest possible contribution to the elevated shaping of human lives, and so to the upward march of mankind. Th ese fundamentals are among the major purposes for which we exist. They are of the essence of our founding." How can we meet this challenge? How can we insure the continuance of Alpha Sigma Tau and of our sister and brother fraternities? In a vitally pertinent article called "Survival in the Sixties," Mr. Richard R. Fletcher, Executive Secretary of Sigma Nu, states that if fraternities are to survive they must be useful, purpo eful, and a lert. I quote: "We'll survive if we're useful, we'll flourish if we're purposeful , and we'll insure our future if we are alert . Our future in the sixties, as at any other time, will depend on whether or not we are in fact what we say we are."

路'AS WE PLEDGE ANEW . . . In other words, we must return to our altars. We must p ledge anew our faith in the purpose and ideals of Alpha Sigma Tau. Mr. F letcher continues : "Ideals are the basis of true fraternity. They are constant ligh tho uses in seas of change. It is to them that we return when we are lost or confused a nd it is to them that we must return now' before it is too late. The operation is sur~ viva!, a nd the road to survival is marked by idea ls, fraterna lism. It's a long, upward climb, but the view on the upper slopes is reward ing beyond belief, a nd th e feet of the resolu te today wi ll wear the path in to a broad highway to be trave led by constant thousands in the years to come." Our constitution for collegiate chapters states that the "o bject of the chapter shall be to promote the ethical, cultural, and social development of its m emb ers/' Our constitution for a lumnae ch apters states th at "t he object of the chapter shall be to preserve the ideals of Alpha Sigma Tau, to encourage close relationship between collegiat e and alumnae chapters, to kee p in touch with all graduates, to perpetuate friendships established in college days, and to contribute to the growth of the National organization." What is your ch apter, collegiate or a lumnae, actually doing to fu lfill its purpose? What are ) IOU as an individ ua l member actually doing to furt her th is purpose? As we recite ou r creed, we say we believe in the permanence a nd loveliness of our ideals, the values of frie ndship, fi delity to purpose, fu lfi llment of se lf, contributing to the progress of mankind, cultivating beauty of spirit a nd graciousness of living . It is not enough to believe; we must practice these idea ls in our da ily lives. At the in itia tion a ltar each of yo u pledged yourself to the support of Alpha Sigma Tau idea ls and standards. H ave you kept these promises? Have yo u he lped others to keep them? That we are not born for ourselves alone is the heart of fraternity philosophy. We enjoy li fe through the help and society of others. It is when we leave the fraterni ty with a s nse of feel ing of duty toward our


fellow man that fraternities have succeeded. Remember that actions speak louder than words. The world judges us by what we do; our enemies are quick to criticize the entire fraternity world for one improper or indiscreet action on the part of an individual chapter or even of an individual member. Remember the raw liver episode in a fraternity in California and the Fort Lauderdale situation. So think before you act and ask yourself if your action will reflect credit or discredit upon yourself, your chapter, your sorority, a nd the general fraternity world. So let us pledge anew our belief in the ideals of Alpha Sigma Tau and let us resolve to reflect the e idea ls in our lives from this day forth. Then there will be no doubt that our beloved sorority will not only survive but flourish, and that we, the members, wi ll live joyously and valiantly, contributing our share to the service of mankind.

Peggy J o not on ly came through r ush excitemen t and busy days, but


she was also th e director for the Sophomore C lass ight show about that time. The night of Spring Walk ing, A~T took its new p ledges a nd spent th e night m a real hunting lodge in th mountains. The lodge was complete with a self-p laying pi a no, a living room fire place, a n a ntique radio, hand-made bunks a nd four deer heads. N eedless to say, a little sleep, but a great deal of fun was had by a ll. The time soon came to bid bon voyage to our beloved Miss H elen F rank. She has been our advisor for severa l years a nd is now traveling a broad. Th e winter snowba ll fights and the notorious A~T Come-as-you-a re p a rties kept Zirk le House bu sy and in need of some cleaning. So, we had a house cleaning party one Saturday. The hou se was then clean for the reception given there for Tae Smith after her voice concert, and for the reception given for the May Queen and her court. Again this year the M ay Court was fu ll of A~T'ers. Brenda Pipice lli was the M ay Queen. J ea n Baum was the Sen ior Princes . Caro l Knight and Beth Quatse were Senior attend ants.

She a lso rece ived the Dr. Samuel Page Duke m emoria l schola rship of one hundred dollars for the highest average in the junior class for the first fi ve semesters. On May 7, Pa nhellenic picn ic was held. T he site was the foot of the large hill on the back campus which overlooks M assanutten Peak . Each sorority or fraternity had two booths. All profits went toward the Pa n hellenic Scholarship Fund. After the picnic AT~ h eld its F ounders' Day ce lebra tion. We sang, imita ted enior , had refreshments and lots of just plain fun. Dorothy Davis who is n ext year's Pre ident, and Bev Sykes are looking forwa rd to m ee ting all of you at the Nationa l Convention. Carol Brockway will represent P i in t he beauty contest there. All three are excited about having the opportunity to be 53

Instead we all headed for Virginia Beach where we had a cottage and an apartment for a week. We enjoyed visiting with the girls from other sororities a t Madison who were there, too. Everyone seemed to have had quite an exciting time and somehow we did get a little sun tan. Psi is looking forward to the 1962-63 school year very much. We're anxious to see Evie Jenkins again after her year in Spain at the University of Madrid as M adison's exchange student. Evie has kept in touch through letters to individuals and to the school paper, but it'll be great to have her back on campus again.

in A~T" were the sentiments expressed in song by Zeta Tau's seventeen pledges at the Hawaiian party in honor of their active sisters. Leis, coconuts, ukes, grass skirts, and shishkabob sticks for our Big Sister were prominent decorations for our first event of the pring semester. The gift of $25 for room improvements was presented as the pledges sang " . .. farewell to our sisters to be." And new sisters they did become-Connie Birch, D ella Bruin, M eredith Ga te, Beverly Dowdy, W anda Old, Betty Sheph erd, T errie Swann, Zee Tapp and Marjorie Twilley. After the fun of the party and the inspira tion of initia tion, collecting old clothes for a Rummage Sa le was our next project. Thi endeavor was so successful that now our room is bulging with old clothes for anoth r and bigger sale soon after school opens. The Greek Banquet brought the pre entation of th e scholarship cup to A~T for the high st a ademic average for the year among 54

the nine sororities at Longwood . After winning such a coveted award, it was easy to get in tune for our Greek Sing, the theme of which was " Around the Seas with the A~Ts." Congratulations are in line for the A~Ts who have won collegiate honors. Among those selected for Wh o's Wh o Among Students in A m erican Un iversities and Colleges were N ancy Pretty and Jo Savage.

I Remember-Sixty-f!Jree fears Afo ... By HARRIET MARX PFEIFFER, Alpha Our Only Living Founder

Harriet Marx Pfeiffe r, Alpha Sigma Tau's only living founder, has written her story of the founding of our sorority.

"t THE


b路y ELOISE HOWES Flint Alumnae are proud to claim as a former member one of th e eight Alpha Sigma Tau found ers. H arriet Marx Pfeiffer nostalgically reminisce here about Mrs. E. A. Lym an, wife of a mathematics professor at Eastern Michigan University, and her vision to direct a group of girl who organized a sorority in 1899; Harriet recalls her college associates and her later a lumn ae friends. She now lives with her daughter, Betty, who teaches in the Social Service department of U.C .L.A. in Berkeley. Their home, overlooking the Bay, is at 239 Co lumbia Avenue, Berkeley 8, Ca lifornia. THE ANCHOR

FALL of 1899 in Ypsi lanti, Michigan, was a lovely one. Indian summer was followed by crisp, clear days. The maples were sudden ly, and for a few brief weeks, alive with reds, orange , and yellows, and then it was winter. The first snow came before th e last leaves left th e branches. This was the yea r of the founding of Alph a Sigma Tau. If an ancient a lmanac belies my description of the sea on please attribute any distortion to a trick of memory because days that were happy, stimu lating, and shared with young friends, are sometimes remembered as beautifu l beyond rea li ty.

E va O 'K eefe and I were roommates in a suite of rooms on Cross Street where we mad e fudge and welsh rabbit in our chafingdish, and saw a great deal of our close friends - May Gephart, Ruth Dutcher, Mable C hase, Mayene Tracy, and the two Rice sisters, Adriance and H elene. In those days we entertained young men in the living room of our suite, and they brought us flower and


boxes of Lowney's chocolates. Most of us wore our hair pompadour fashion, and on dress occasions added a flower. There were formal dances in the gymnasium of the college, and less form al ones in the Ladies' Library downtown. I rem ember as if it were hanging in my closet today, a long, white organdy gown with tiers of ruffles and a geranium red flower that m a tched my beavercloth cape. Alph a Sigma Tau was found ed in a ha ppy, re la tively secure world before World Wa r I. College students in those days were free to give themselves up to the n atura l a nd proper concerns of you th on a co llege

campus- to prepa ration for their careers to roma nce and friendship. There were still horse drawn vehicles on the street , a nd the telephone was a gadet on the wa ll tha t you cra nked briskly. A trip to the moon was not more tha n a Jules V erne fantasy, a nd a utoma tion was Mrs. Sh elly' s prophetic novel. Although our sorority had it beginnings in


the resolve of eight young women to bind themselves together in friendship, it was Mrs. Elmer L yman's dedication and devoted service over many, many year s tha t brought .a bout its eventu al nationa lization. At the time that he becam e Alpha Sigma Tau's first adviser, her hu sband was acting president of the co llege, and a profes or of m a them a tics. Their lar ge home became the setting of m an y of our activities. A year la ter Mi s Ada orton in the m athem a tics departmen t and Miss Abigail P earce in the Eng lish dep artment also becam e official adviser . Other dear friends joined us-Zoe W aldron, L ou a nd Bess ie Nims Edith, N ell, a nd Florence Silk, etc. Co llege yea rs were over, and I returned to m y family home in Port Huron, Michigan, and accepted a teaching position there. M y sa lar y wa $30 a m onth- two dollars more tha n those teach ers without a college education! Bu t tho e were days wh en you could have dinner in a good hotel for fi fty cents, a n ice cream soda for a nickel, and a pair of shoe for $3.50. The next year I joined H elene Rice in Calumet, Michigan, where I ta ught second grader . Those were again gay, happy times in a thoroughly socia ble town a live with young p rofessiona l a nd busine s people, and students from the College of Mines. Zoe was teaching in H oughton, le s than twelve miles away. The winters were co ld, long, a nd the snow very dee p, but the dances were wonderful and the sleigh bells tinkled m errily. I suppose that teach ers always rem ember their early cia sroom be t - mine th a t year was full of serious, we llscrubbed little faces- many of them Italia n. T each ers m oved about a great deal early in the century, and the spirit of adventure was a live in m e. From Calumet I p a used briefl y in Wisconsin, and then m oved on to Adriance and H elen e H elena, M onta na . were there. Ad ria nce la ter becam e Mrs. C ha rle Settles, a nd h er sister, M r . Ole Hollinaby. These two very dear friend both died while they were still relatively ouna . It was during my stay in H elena that I visited a friend in Seattle who an 路a na d th m eeting with the m a n I married in 1908. H e wa a young Ena!i h minina na in r who THE

.H R

had come to this country by way of the west coast of Africa, Mesopotamia and western <?ana~a. After our marriage we lived for a time m Seattle, and then in Tacoma where my daughter, Betty, was born. There followed a period of real adventure. We lived in the Cascades, and later in the Rockies where we broke trail early one spring through Yellowstone National Park. Europe was at war by then, and presently we were in it, too. Sometime during its final months we moved to Detroit and it became much more real to us. Perhaps it was because of the concentration of industry, and because of the silent groups of wounded, convalescent m en in wheel chairs on the grounds of Ford Hospital. In St. Clair Heights, then a suburb of Detroit, I resumed my teaching career. It was 1918 and teachers were urgently needed -even married ones. For me it was to have been a year at most . . . a kind of patriotic pinch-hitting until times became norma l again . I did not retire until 1942. Our years in D etroit gave me m embership in our very active alumnae chapter there, and reunion with some very old friends. In time we left Detroit and moved to Flint. It was there in the library of Cody Elementary School that I met Eloise Howes, and she was wearing an Alpha Sigma Tau pin. A few weeks later we held our first Flint alumnae meeting in her apartment, and it is good to know that once again I shared in an important Alpha Sigma Tau beginning. Although my home has been in Berkeley, California, during the past fifteen years I continue to have a feeling of affiliation with this lively, dedicated group of Alpha Sigma Taus. It was Eloise who wrote and asked that I write something about these many yearstheir importance attaches itself to our Alpha Sigma Tau. I am naturally humbly grateful to have been one of those eight college girls at Ypsilanti State Normal College in 1899.

bottle, the Blacks play with the new birthday presents and Mommy has a nap. My parents phone that they will be in D enver for supper and then spend the night before returning to their home in Brush. They have been in Los Angeles for the Rotary International convention. We barbecue ribs outside. Eric shows off his new bow and arrows. June 16: The sitter is here. Two A~T's come to the house and we go in my car on the long drive across D enver to the luncheon meeting. Good lunch. Good meeting. See you all in September when I'll report on the convention! June 17: Early church service. We go out to the archery range and watch part of the second day of the tournament. New babies attract attention everywhere. Mike gets his share. The three Blacks are so excited to see Daddy shoot at the targets. So many people are archery fans now. We go back home. Father's Day is spent without Father. We work in the yard catching up on work we've left undone. We eat a late supper. Still no Father. He calls. He had picked up some cherries (that's a ll I need-cherries to pit! ) and had taken a man to a ho pita! where his wife and child had been taken after an auto accident. All are fine now. H e gets home to his steak which is not as rare as h e likes it ' but he seems to enjoy it. June 18: The welfare department ca lls. The baby will come here at about 1 : 30. I get the clothes and bottles ready. We furnish them, using the allowance from the d epartment. I'm borrowing another bassinet. I pit two quarts of cherries for the freezer. My seven-year-old boy helps m e in the afternoon. It is finished so much faster and now we have many potential cherry pies. The baby comes. The case worker says children with oriental backgrounds are not difficult to place in the Denver area . The problem right now seems to be boys. Everyone wants a pretty little girl to dress up . I had thought both these boys would be gone before convention time in August. We will just have to wait to see. The baby remains on the couch nameless until George gets home. I've been


telling him to get a name ready for days now. Still no name. In the evening I attend a small household party across the street. When I come home, the bassinet has come and both babies are cosily asleep. J erry is the new name. June 19. We are doing well. I t's ea y to keep the two sets of formula separate in the refrigerator. If two bottles get mixed up outside- Mike's have a ring around at five ounces. J erry's at 3. I was up only eight times last night! Thi is usual at first and ge ts better quickly. J erry squeals like a stepped-on puppy until he warms up to a loud yell. Mike is sleepinrr through the night like a doll. George's parents arrive for his mother's family reunion in D enver. Five brothers and sisters and their families will be together aga in after many years. It's nice to have extra hands at " holding time" and to do those things that are left when a skinned knee needs attention. J une 20: Jerry is one week old, a nd his head shape is changing considerably. H e is getting quite pretty. His squealing isn't so nerve-jangling, or maybe it is less frequent. Mike is thriving. W e leave them both with a sitter wh ile the Clan gathers to show off younguns at the family reunion. I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much with the teenies a long.

Alpha Taus at Ball State Teachers College. The Alpha Alpha chapter sponsored and took part in quite a few activities in the spri ng of 1962.

Margaret Troisi and La Vonne Lippitt ride along. The bride was Liz J ensen, an A:ST roommate from college days. June 23: Three couples come for pot luck supper and bridge. One couple brings their daughter of four weeks. So nice to have a baby girl in the hou e again! June 24: The relatives are gone and we can settle into a routine again. Jerry gets a nice reception at church. Projects for this week are sewing for myself, catching up on ironing and entertaining some of the sorority girls at bridge and a medical checkup for Mike (it takes a whole morning ) . Lest anyone think I keep a diary a a matter of course, let me tell you how this article has been written. A calendar is before me to remind me of happenings. I average twenty words between interruptions. A sandbox full of neighbor children, meals, formula to prepare, and all the chore that are so "daily" for a homemaker and mother- even on Sunday-can make a writing endeavor a lmost impossible. We are all busy- and who is happier than a woman busy at things she enjoys.

the school yearbook, the Orient, sponsored its annua l queen pageant. Peggy Riggs wa our candidate for the title of Orient Queen and Miss Ball State. On a co ld F ebruary 23, comp lete with a Muncie blizzard, we took part in the annual K appa Sigma K appa Variety Show. We combined our effort with Pi Beta Phi Alpha Sigma Alpha and Sigma Tau Gamma to produce the "All-American."

On April 28 we visited the home of Mrs . Harriet Nelson for our annual dessert smorgasbord with our alumnae chapter in Muncie. We truly enjoyed spending a wonderful afternoon with the members. The Top Hat, a re taurant located near Muncie, was again the scene of our Parent ' Day Breakfast on April 29. We sponsored the breakfast to coincide with the college's annual Parents' Day. Our program included the presentation of the 1962 pledge song. Our seniors also sang a song which they had composed for the event. May was definitely our busiest month. On May 4 we held our fun night for the pledges. The evening of watching the pledges go through their fina l "duties" of pledgeship was ended with a party in the suite. Just before they left the suite, the pledges received their active padd les and were told they wou ld be initiated on Sunday. O n the afternoon of May 6, the Alpha Alp ha chapter in itiated thirteen girls. They were Donna Behr, Marijo Barnett, Caro l THE AN C HOR

Buzo lits, Peggy Cunningham, Cindy Deane, Sue Denison, Helen Goodrich , Pat McCollough, Kathy McCool, Barb M etca lf, Janenne N icho ls, Janet Owen s and ind y Peckhart. Two weeks later we were busily having a wonderful time at our closed dance. This year we d ecided to have a Spanish fiesta theme and carry out the theme by dressing as Spaniards. The dance was held in the YWCA Community Room in Muncie. The decorations committee did a wonderful job in decorating the room to look like a Spanish cafe. A picnic at Mounds State Park on the next clay concluded the weekend festivities. On May 25 we drove out to Camp Muncie for our ca mp out. On Friday night we went on a midnight hike and had a song fest and ceremony around the cam pfire. Saturday morning we div ided into mall groups for "buzz" sessions about sorority and campus activities for next year. The outin()" drew us closer together as sisters and helped us to focus our thoughts on our sorority program. On Sunday, May 27, our a nnu a l Senior picnic was held at the home of our patroness, Mrs. Maynor. She and h er husband saw that all of u had a wonderful time. As the school year drew to a close, many campus organizations were elect ing their officers for the coming year. Thi year we were proud that one of our sisters Kay Klein, was elected president of the Panhe llenic Council at Ball State. We of Alpha Alpha chapter are eagerly looking forward to th e fa ll of 1962.- MARIJO BARNETT

Alpha Delta's Scholarship Rating t. SPRING TERM started with a bang for Al-

pha Delta. Due to two informal rush parties we were lucky enough to get six wonderful new pledges. Our first informal rush party was based on a H awaiian theme. V iolet Izuno, a native Hawaiian, demonstrated the hu la for us. Decorations consisted of fish nets, sea shells, a little grass shack and the "ocean," made from blue paper. Punch was served in hollowed h alf-coconuts which still contained the meat. T HE ANCHOR

Penny, who traveled to Pittsburg with Jesse Burrell, Dean of Women, brought back many good ideas which will be of use to us in our relations with other sororities. During spring term the actives held a card party with the alums. The party offered a chance for the actives to become better acquainted with the alums, and gave th e alums an opportunity to meet the new pledges. Everyone had fun and we are looking forward to many such parties in the future. Alpha D elta placed third in the Volleyball Tournament and in the swim meet.

ALpha Iota First in Scholarship ;\:. THE SPRING semester of 1962 has been a lively and exciting one for Alpha Sigs at Syracuse. Our social events included a number of coffees with various fratern ities on campus. In M arch, a wonderful time was had by a ll as we danced a t th e Twist Party at Skytop . Highlighting the socia l ca lendar was our Spring form al wh ich was held a t the Airways Inn. A delicious buffet dinner was followed by a lovely evening of d a ncing. Other high lights of th e Spring term included a pajama party, with much hi larity an d litt le sleep. In addition to providing a fun-fi lled evening, the annua l White Elepha nt sale was held to raise money fo r Tavern y, a French orphanage which we support as part of our social service work. Frosh Weekend was a time of enthusiastic participation from our pledges. At the Frosh Weekend carnival, we had a booth of " penny-pitching" wh ich contributed to the enjoyment of the weekend as well as to th e coffers of our campus charity organization. Spring Weekend provided an opportunity for us to exercise our artistic talents in the floa t parade. The over-all theme of th e parade was borrowed from Charles Addams, the well-known cartoonist of the N ew York er magazine. Our floa t, entitled "Spring Through Charles Addam s' E yes" featured his famous Ghoul family and a profusion of bats a nd spiders. It proved a nove l a nd interesting way to welcome the new season. An event of which we at Alph a Iota a re particularly proud th is year took p lace at the a nnua l Pa nhellenic Luncheon held at the Hotel Syracuse.

In F ebruary, we were proud to increase our membership with the pledging of M arcia Thayer and Alice Ahern . L a uretta Sine was formally initiated into the sorority. Despite cold M arch weather, both pledges and actives thoroughly enjoyed the Pledge Banquet held at the Wakefield H otel on the 12th. Our faculty advisor, Miss F rances Geller, spoke on the t6pic, "Your Purpo e in Seeking an Edu ca tion," and poems dedicated to little sisters were read by their big sisters. The A ~T pledge class gave a uccessful Planet Party to entertain 45 pledges of other sororities. A skit featuring a n a tronaut took guests to the moon where five A~Ts, each representing a different sorority, wa ited to sing a song in its honor. Donut sputniks a nd crater punch were th e unique refreshments. Sports-wise, our volleyball team placed a close secon d, while the bowling team also came in second in the tournament. Pledges were kept busy with their two-fold project of painting the sorority crest which hangs .in the Student U nion, and finishing a bookcase for our ever-growing library. April was a time of song practices in prepara tion for Greek Sing. Under the killful direction of Margie Hudon, we put on a good p erformance singing, "How Sad Flow the Streams," and " Sleep K entucky Babe."

Edith Mansell in her college days.

A Tribute to the Late Edith Mansell t ALPHA SrGMA T A hearts are saddened by

the death of our beloved sorority sister, EDITH MANSELL. So devoted was she to Alpha Sigma Tau th a t words are in adequa te to describe her sin ce re efforts in its behalf. Edith began sorority life as a m ember of Beta chapter, just four years after the chapter was install ed. From that d ay on h er loya lty was outstanding. She served h er own cha pter well while in college a nd went on to become one of our orority's be t lead ers. She was chosen by our found ers to help with the final na tionalization of Alpha Sigma T a u. \tVith members of D etroit Alumnae Ch apter she pla nned our first a tiona l Convention a t D e troit, Michigan, in 1925. At this convention she was elected Vice-President and Organizer, a position she h eld until 1934. he a lso assisted in dra wing up the first ationa! Constitution of the orority. Seven collegiate cha pters were oraanized by Edith . Eta, L ambd a and Pi were insta lled by her . Sh e a lso h elped to organize Theta C ha pter in 1 e troit in 1923, before our orority b ca me n a tional. In 1934 to 1946 he


served as Alph a Sigm a Tau's represe nta ti,路e in the "Associa tion of Education ororitie ." In a pprecia tion of her ervice to Alpha 1gm a T a u, Edith was presented with the d a A. Norton awa rd a t th e 1946 Com路e ntion. Edith was born in C a lifornia, the eldc t of three da ughters, on J an uary 27, 1890. At the age of 12. becau e of the death of h er mother, she ca me to Mount Pleasant, Michigan, to Jiye with her uncle and a un t, Profe sor a nd Mrs. C la ude La rza lere. H er uncle was President of Centra l Michigan T eachers Co llege (now a ni,路er ity) in Mount Pleasant . Edith grew to love this family a her own, the La rza lere a nd their two adopted sons, R ona ld a nd K eith. he often remarked when sh e was going to visit tha t she was fortuna te to have two fa milies, the L arza leres a nd her si ters in Ca lifornia, Be s and H elen. She usually pent her umm ers with h er si ters and while there she did gradu a te work a t the U niversity of C alifornia. After receiving her certifica te in teaching from Centra l Michigan C ollege, she ta ught in a country chool near her home. Later she received h er A.B. degree fro m the University of Michigan a nd began teaching in high chool. She then began work on a M aster's degree, attending ummer school a t Ann Arbor. he taught in three m a ll towns before goina to Highla nd Park in 19 19. Besides being a wonderful teach er, he was an outsta nding co un elor and advisor.

year of 1924. The following year our sorority became nationa l and Theta chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau was the first national sorority on the W ayne State University Campus. I could not write about Edith 's friendships in Alpha Sigma T au, without telling you of our social bridge group, Detroit Alumnae Chapter II . She and Carrie Staehle started it over thirty yea rs ago. We were originally a group of nine, each being hostess once a year. Edith was so much a part of this, being our chairman, she kept us together for the past thirty years by having the plans for the following m eeting arranged well in advance. We were of different age groups; our interests were som etimes not the same; we represented four different chapters of the sorority, but with our Alpha Sigma Tau ties, we h ave had lasting friendships. Edith was the only unmarried one in the group and when we talked of our families she would tell of h er n ephews' children and grandchildren . She was so proud of h er family!

did not have to give up her home. Ju st two weeks after she enterta in ed our bridge group she was taken to the hospital and th end came within a week, on March 7, 1962. All who knew Edith personally wou ld be pleased to write a tribute to her memory but that i not possible, o I have chosen three people who were closely associated with her during different periods of her life.



Dr. Gorton R eithmiller President of Olivet Co llege Olivet, Michigan "Each of us in our chooling has had one teacher who h as stood out above a ll others. Similarly, those of us in the profession over a p eriod of years are able to single out one or two teachers who represented the ideal in what we expect from the very best. Edith M anse ll was such a teacher. It was my privilege to serve with her for more than twenty years in my seve ral capacities as a fellow teacher and administra tor. Miss Mansell was a classic example of the finest attributes of the teaching profession . She was a gracious lady, a top technician in the classroom, thorough in her preparation, comp lete ly ethica l in her professional relation hips and a major asset to the High land Park school system she served so well for so long."

Edith's apartment was located across the street from the college where she taught. It was furnished with beautiful antiques, china and si lver from her home in Mount Pleasant. After the death of her Aunt she cared for Professor Larza lere here, the last five years of his life. She spoke some in the last year of the tim e when she wou ld no longer be ab le to live a lon e. We could see a change in h er physica lly and wondered how soon that time wou ld come. We were a ll than kful that she T HE ANCH OR

"As one reflects over his school years, chances are his memories will linger here and there along the way, on some of the teachers he had. I cannot think back without fondly remembering a teacher I had in Junior High- the first instructor I ever had who awakened in me a realization that a 'teacher' could also be a friend- an everyday, personal friend! It was a wonderful discovery for me! "A few years later, when I became an Alpha Sigma Tau, no one had to 'sell' me sorority! Miss Mansell was an Alpha Sigma Tau and advisor of Theta Chapter, that was all I needed to know! It was Edith who introduced me to the National Council and it was her devotion to sorority that served as an inspiration for me over the years. I know of no Sister who better exem plifies the 'Idea l Alpha Sigma Tau Woman.' Edith lived her beliefs and to have known her is to have respected her ; to have been her friend was a privilege. I shall miss her."

"Edith' aim was alway to give and in doing so she received the love, admiration and gratitude of many people. She was alway aware of the fine enduring qualities in Alpha Sigma Tau and worked to make those qualities more outstanding." CARRIE w. STAEHLE


What a remarkable woman Edith was! Her sweetness of spirit and her desire to always support the best for Alpha Sigma Tau will long be remembered.

" H old high the torchYou did not light its glow; ' T was given you from other hands, you kno w. 'Tis only yours to kee p it burning bright. Yours to pass on, when you do not need the light. For there are feet that you must guide And other forms go passing by your side." Edith Mansell has passed on to others the torch of Alpha Sigma Tau, which she carried high for more than fifty years. Reverently, we pay homage to her memory. EMILY B. FITZGERALD (MRs. GERALD FITZGERALD )

helped the collegiate girls with suggestions for rushing. At the close of the convention she was elected vice president and organizer. When D elta Chapter was organized at Indiana, Pen nsylvania, May 27, 1916, Mary was one of its advisers. The chapter grew rapidly but was disbanded by the college along with all the other sororities in 1919. Mary kept the girls together in a local club called Delta Tau, and when sororities were again permitted on the campus in 1928, there was a chapter ready for Alpha Sigma Tau. Mary continued as adviser until the summer of 1937 when she resigned as instructor in the music department of the Indiana State Teachers College to marry Mr. Russell


Guard , a widower with three children. She maintained the same efficiency and enthusiasm with her new family that he had had as sorority adviser. She a lso continued to be interested in D elta Chapter's collegiate and alumnae members, until her death in August 1962. It is very appropriate for all of us to honor the memory of Mary King Guard. During the early years of our national history when disasters frequently occurred, Mary's courage never faltered. She was always certain that "Where there is a will, there is a way." Her work and her loyalty helped lay the strong foundation of Alpha Sigma Tau on which we have built our beloved sorority.- CARRIE W. STAEHLE

members the chapter h as taken on n ew life. At our year ly rummage sale in April proceeds were enough to send our n ew president, M axi ne Springer, to her third official convention. She a lso went to another, but had to return home because of a death in her family. In M ay, six members attended the Flint a nniversary luncheon. The highlight of the program was the very interesting talk by our National President, Mrs. Peterson. Another enjoyab le evening occurred when D oroth y Hughes, Alpha, showed picture of her European trave ls. vVe closed our year with a picnic at Gertrude Kimmick' s. Of course it rained, but we a te and ta lked just as freely indoors. Offi cers for n ext year were insta lled.-M ARY WALTON

Muncie Sent Delegate t CuRRENTLY we are thinking of the con-

vention . W e wish we all could go. Mr . W . E. Wagoner very graciou ly offered her garage as the location for a rummage sale and we were h app to accept. The proceed are to h elp end one d elega t to th convention. T HE ,




Our June meeting was highlighted with a visit from Miss Frances Bo tford, California.

Philadelphia's Annual Spring Luncheon ;t THE PHILADELPHIA Alumnae Chapter had

some fin e get-togethers this sprina. In place of the March meeting a group attended Marie Furia's wedding at St. Rita's Church, and then visited over lunch a t th e Bellevue Stratford. In April we travelled to L ois O'De ll's for a deliciou s luncheon and a planning session. Our Annua l Spring Luncheon for mothers and guests was h eld May 11 , at the home of our president, Betty Allison. Betty had delicious cold turkey and th e members outdid themselves with tasty sa lads a nd beautiful d esserts. Luncheon was foll owed by a lovely musical program. The gues t so loist rendered selections from cu rrent Broadway musicals. Betty's husband accompan ied her on the piano. In June we wended our way to Shrewsbury, N ew J ersey, to enjoy a luncheon at the lovely new home of Emily R eedy Schopp. It was quite a trip but we a ll agreed it was well worth it. It seems all our last meetings invo lved eating. Perhaps more of our members will be joining us come fall. We hope so.- PHYLLIS F . CLARK

Roanoke Works for Panhellenic ;t THE RoAN OKE Alumnae chapter has ex-

perienced a busy and rewa rding year. We were especially pleased with our Christmas Project. E ach of our members brought a present for a twelve-year-old boy. At our Christmas party we had a delightful time wrapping the gifts which later brought such pleased expressions from the boys.


We a re o very enthusiastic about our part in the R oanoke C ity Panhellenic Association fashion show a nd tea. T his event is held each year for a ll R oanoke city and county girls who are prospective sorority members. Our own Pa nh ellenic representative, M artha C rute, will be cha irma n, and we know the fashio n show and tea will be highly successful under her leadershi p. Our president, Sarah H odges, has been a faithfu l and conscientious leader. She has worked hard to make our meetings interesting a nd timulating. Sarah will preside at our fa ll organizationa l meeting when we wil l elect our new officers. VVe then plan to install the officers at our Founder's Day Banquet. - SuzANNE GLA s, M ARTHA Goon WIN

E va M ay Koenig h as a summer luncheon , p lanned for July 25. Looks li ke July will be a very socia l month. Two convention meetings have been held in June.

There are plans for other m eetings a nd work sesswns.


Hope you will all be at the Convention in St. Louis in August to see the results of our planning. We are changing our annual fall breakfast, in Forest Park, to a pancake meal held at the Pancake House. The date is always the first Saturday after Labor D ay. The first fall meeting will be held at the home of Elizabeth Wilson. As customary, it will be a pot luck supper. These meetings always seem to be well attended. A convention report will be of additional intere t. The collegiate rush parties are in October and the alums offer their assi tance, usually in the kitchen. We celebrate Founder ' Day in November. A program meeting is a lso p lanned for later in the month. The St. Louis alumnae hope many fri endships are renewed and new acquaintances made during the Convention here in August.-MARY Lou ScoTT

Shepherdstown Has Parcel Post Sale :t ] N FEBRUARY we met with Miss Ruth Seibert for a Parcel Post Sale. Items for the sa le were sent by mail or brought to the meeting, and then were auctioned off. A poem concerning the sale was composed by some of our group and sent to each member reminding them of the sa le. It proved to be something different and an idea for another alumnae group to use. I n March we had a most enjoyable evening when we met with Mrs. Phoebe Payne at Charles Town. A friend of Mrs. Payne, Mrs. Dorothy Furr, showed u slides she and her husband had taken when vacationing in the West. Some of the scenes were of Disneyland, the Grand Canyon, Pike's Peak, San Francisco, Los Angeles and other incidental places. We were al o happy to see Mrs. Payne's newly built home. We have many historica l landmarks in our town, and we were very pleased to have a guided tour of one of them before our April busines. meeting. We were the guests of


Mrs. Roderick Cheeseman, resident of "Boydville." It is a lovely home with surrounding gardens. Mrs. Cheeseman told u many hi torical facts about the home. We then returned to the home of Mrs. Stephen Sinnitt for our meeting. It was at this time that we gave a gift of $50.00 to the colleaiate chapter to start a housing fund. We are looking forward to a aood year beginning in the fall. We have many intere ting things planned for our meeting .- DoRoTHY MASO LEFEVRE

Washington, D. C. Has Novel Dinner :t WE ALWAYS have fun at our Christmas meeting when we prepare a basket of food and toys for a Multiple Sclera i family. It was held at the home of Margaret Bower . Addre sing Chri tmas card and singing carols wa another highlight of an evening that really put u in the Christmas spirit. At our January meeting at the home of Barbara Live ay, a report was made on how successful our Christma basket was and we received a letter from the family expres ing happines and appreciation for the gift . A lot of fun was had playing the game. "Th Price I Right," for mall prizes. February found us meeting at the home of Ann Dey. It was decided at thi meeting that one of our project for making money would be to give a door prize at each meeting. We were all invited to a tea held at the home of M ary Louie Doyle on February 3, and had a delightful tim e. Our ho te s for the March meeting was Hildred Wood. The nominating committee reported on a new sla te of officer . Charlotte Dougla won the door prize and we a l o enjoyed playing "Pa word."

We presented our outgoing president Margaret Bowers, with a gift. Margaret has certainly presided with capable leadership during the year. Our final get-together was at a dinner given by Margaret at her home. As we entered the house each one was handed a card telling us in what room each course of the meal was served. It was more fun scrambling around to have our appetizer in the den, dinner in the living or dining room or dessert on the porch.-jEAN SELENO

Ypsilanti-f'.nn Arbor Cheers Senior Citizens t FAY

(Mrs. George ) Mitchell's blazing fireplace lent a cozy atmosphere to her lovely family room as the members of the Ypsilanti-Ann Arbor Alums heard a book review by Joan Carpenter abo ut Taylor Caldwell's inspirational novel, Th e Listener. The aroma of home baked goodies filled Wilma Court's home in March as the group embarked on another money making project that followed the business meeting. The baked goods were bid on secretly and went to the highest bidder. We are constantly amazed at how much money can be raised with so little effort. The April showers didn ' t dampen our spirits one bit as we celebrated our Alumnae Founder's Day with a smorgasbord dinner. I wonder if anyone ever found out what wa at the other end of the table. On the 15th of April the membership volunteered once again to say "Happy Birthday"


to a group of senior c1t1zens at the Washtenaw County Infirmary. Mitzie (Mrs. W. J. ) Maxey was the chairman. Cake, ice cream, favors and gifts were presented to approximately seventy-five patients. It's very difficu It to determine which group profits the most from this worthwhile undertaking. Our annual Mother's Day Luncheon was held at the lovely Rotunda Inn on Pine Lake in May. Because a ll of the mothers had some type of charm bracelet, each was presented with a silver disk with the inscription, "An A::ST's Mother," and the date. This was the third year we have held this luncheon, and each year the mothers and members seem to enjoy it more. Joan Carpenter acted as chairman and gave a brief summary of the history, purpose and ideals of Alpha Sigma Tau. The lovely home of Sally (Mrs. Gilbert ) Pearson was the setting for the Senior initiation. Each alumnae member brought an unusual dessert. Such a sight to behold. The Senior girls greatly approved the refreshments, and one was heard to remark, "This certainly beats that Floating Island at the donn." Once again our windup meeting was held at Donna (Mrs. James ) Steven's cottage. Following a swim and pot luck supper a business meeting was held to tentatively plan next year's agenda. This has been a wonderful year for us all. We are looking forward with happy anticipation to the year to come under the fine leadership of Donna Stevens, our president, and her officers.- JOAN CARPENTER
