THE NEWEST chapters On the A MONG AST roster is Alpha Phi at West Chester State College, West Chester, Pa. This college dates back to 1812 when it was known as West Chester Academy. In 1860, it became a normal school, and a few years later, a state supported school for teacher training. Today, this college is in the process of seeking university status. It offers many varied programs in music, liberal arts and business administration. The campus is fairly large containing a mixture of old and new architecture. The present enrollment is about 7,000, and this figure increase each year. Many new classrooms and dormitories are being built on campus. At the south end stands the new physical education complex. It includes a sports stadium, classroom buildings and a dorm. Since the official recognition of sororities and fraternities in the fall of 1967, the atmosphere at West Chester is changing. The students are beginning to foster a true collegiate spirit, and the Alpha Phis are proud to be a part of this.

Alpha Phi Joins AST Sisterhood

was bursting with spring and the culmination of Panhellenic Week the weekend that Alpha Phi Colony was installed as a chapter. Activities began early Saturday, March 29, 1969 when national representatives Sue McBee, Margaret Macdonald, Elizabeth Wilson, Sally Wales, and Rose Marie Schmidt, assisted by members of the colony group, prepared the conference room of the Student Union for the

initiation. Seventeen members were initiated in an impressive and solemn ceremony. Background organ music was provided by a tape of sorority songs prepared by Georgia Chivakos of Alpha Chi Chapter. The initiation of the pledge group was expertly performed by Alpha Phi officers that afternoon. As a joyful group of Alpha Phi members hurried back to the dorms through the damp afternoon to prepare for the installation dinner, Mrs. McBee led the national representatives to the country club to arrange the ballroom and the tables for t he evening's function. It was a true family affair that evening as Alpha Phi members, families, and friends gathered in the foyer of the Penn Oaks Country Club for photographs and introductions. As guests were seated members presented their mothers with a yellow rose. The introduction of membet 2


to the assembled gathering began with a processional from the main entrance. Each girl received a green ribbon lei with a yellow ribbon rose as she entered the room and joined her guests. Among the highlights of the evening were Dr. Sykes' welcome of Alpha Phi to the campus; the charter presentation by Elizabeth Wilson, national president; the gavel and chapter plaque presentations by Mrs. Wales and Dr. Schmidt; the pres-

entation of a silver tea service by Miss Macdonald as the national organization's gift to Alpha Phi; the candle lighting service by Mrs. McBee; and the presence of Philadelphia and Delaware Alumnae. In her presentation of Alpha Sigma Tau to West Chester College, Miss Wilson emphasized the values which Alpha Sigma Tau expresses in its Creed and program, values which complement and correspond to the values of West Chester College. Alpha Sigma Tau members were particularly thrilled by the challenging speech of Dr. Charlotte E. King. Dr. King is chairman of the elementary education department of West Chester College and an Alpha Sigma Tau alumna of Lambda Chapter. Rose Marie Schmidt

Northwestern University in Boston is the home of the new Alpha Chi Chapter.

ALPHA CHI CHAPTER INSTALLED of collegiate chapters, Alpha Sigma Tau installed its Alpha Chi Chapter at Northeastern University in Boston. On March 16, 35 girls accepted the pledges of their new sorority. Formerly known as Delta Pi Alpha, this organization of girls has long been established at the University as a local sorority. They have approximately 75 alumnae in the area. The installation ceremony was conducted by Mrs. Bernard McBee, expansion director, and Margaret Macdonald, national treasurer. A dinner followed in the afternoon at the Sheraton Motor Inn in Lexington, Mass. Among the highlights of the afternoon was the presentation of the gift from National-a lovely silver tea service. Some of the honored guest at the banquet included: Prof. Charles E. Kitchin

director of student activities; Edith E. Emery, dean of women; Alice Jeghelian, assistant dean of women; Margaret Bishop, assistant dean of women; Kenneth Ryder, vice president and dean of administration, and Juanita Long, dean of the college of nursing. Alice J eghelian, the faculty adviser to Alpha Chi, is Assistant Dean of Women at the University. She has been this local sorority's adviser since 1964 when she first came to Northeastern. A graduate of Mount Holyoke College, Miss J eghelian holds a Master's Degree in Education from Harvard University and is currently a doctoral student in Counseling Psychology at Boston College. Here are a few brief facts about Alpha Chi's home. Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a private, non-sectarian institution of higher learning. A distinctive feature of the University is its cooperative plan.

This educational method enables students to gain valuable practical experience as an integral part of their college program and also helps them finance their own education. Under the cooperative plan a student's awareness of the real world beyond the college campus is heightened, and this awareness is brought back into the classroom. Currently Northeastern is assisting some 40 other colleges and universities considering adoption of this plan. As the largest private university in the country and the largest cooperative institution, Northeastern draws students from 26 states and several foreign countries. Undergraduate programs are offered in many fields including, liberal arts, engineering, education, nursing and business administration. The main campus of the University is located in the historic Back Bay section of Boston.

Speal< Up in Support of Your Greel< Affiliations! As sorority members we became concerned when we read unfair and biased articles downgrading the college fraternity system. The " Greeks" (members of sororities and fraternities ) have a history of obedience and co-operation with college administration rules and regulations. " Greeks" never storm the president's office or barricade campus buildings demanding to be given authority of administrators. Why, then is the fraternity system attacked while other student groups (some bearded and barefooted ) are allowed to disrupt classes, set policies and force the resignation of college presidents? Today membership in fraternities totals over seven million. In the last six years 400 colleges asked that the "Greek"


system be established on their campuses. Reasons given for these requests were : the fraternity system improves scholarship, promotes leadership and good citizenship, and creates a loyalty to the college or university. It is a matter of record that 75 percent of the individual funds contributed to colleges and universities is from fraternity and sorority members . We think the facts should be reported fairly and completely. We are proud of our collegiate " Greeks" who consist ently maintain high scholarship standing, and who encourage high moral and ethical standards. We are proud they are learning to be the leaders of tomorrow. Houston (T exas) City Panhellenic Association N ewsletter; and IRA C Bulletin, April '69


is more comparable to northern European countries than to the United States. However, some interesting contrasts to U. S. education are found in the following areas: the centralizing of educational control, curriculum development, school hours, class size and teacher unions. The first and most striking difference in the Soviet Union is the centralization of education in a National Ministry. This means that salaries, curriculum, textbook writing policy is centralized in a Minister of Education who is comparable to aU. S. cabinet member. Curriculum, textbook writing and polBy icy are formulated by the Minister with lillian Vogt the help of some teachers. When the curSchippers riculum has been written, it is tried out, St. Louis revised and finally put into effect throughAlumna out the country. This, of course, results in great uniformity of teaching. Usually a course of study remains in effect for about five years before more revisions and rewriting are done. Textbooks are written and published under the auspices of the Ministry and give information to implement the course of study. In the United States many private textbook companies vie with one another in content, format and illustrations to sell books. Here in Russia no competition of this kind exists since private enterprise is discouraged. Textbooks are purely functional and directed toward a single purpose--to cover a specific subject and prepare the student for his examination. In the elementary schools I visited, no supplementary books, library books or visual aids were evident. The teacher pre~ sented the lesson, using a small chalk' board . While touring Siberia we did find one elementary school for the personnel of the academic and science center which did have a central library. However, the books were limited in number, unattractive and tattered primarily because the binding EDITOR'S NOTE was so poor. During her last trip behind the Iron Audio-visual aids are supposedly used Curtain, Lillian Vogt Schippers took a extensively for foreign language clas es close look at the Russian educational in Russia. We were told that foreign lansystem. Here are her comments . guages were taught in the elementary








schools, and English was started in grade five. Yet we saw no audio-visual equipment until we visited college level foreign language classes. It is important to point out the size of the classes in Russia. We never saw a class of more than 21 students, and most classes were smaller. Language classes are never higher than 15 students. Russian students are in class for the length of time each day as U. S. pupils. However, U.S.S.R. schools also operate on Saturdays. Many activities and clubs fill the students' after school hours. If both parents are working, Russian students remain at school until the adults return home. Parents are not involved in Soviet education in the way that parents are involved in the United States. The P.T.A. in unknown here. Because the mothers work and because of a difference in philosophy, education is left to the specialists. Sometimes the parents are called in the evening for group instruction on child rearing. Occasionally the teachers may visit a home to discuss a special problem. If compulsory 10-year education has not already been attained in Russia, it is well on the way. It is being extended from the eight-year school. More teachers are needed and will be needed. Teachers are trained in a network of normal schools and also at the university. They receive different training according to the kind of school they will teach in.


In addition, teachers already workin g in the school system have opportunities to improve their qualifications and their knowledge. They can also get help in solving special pedagogical problems encountered in their teaching. In-service training of teachers to a large extent takes place right in the school. Experienced teachers attend each other's classes and later discuss teaching methods. The oldest and best teachers help the newcomers with their work. If the older teachers do not give this help they may be severely censured. More than 100 institutes are maintained in the larger centers for teacher improvement. These institutes exist to help the teacher with his current problems, to give him a better knowledge of his subject and to keep him abreast of the latest developments in his field. This advice and information is free and participation is open to any teacher who feels in need of their services. The Soviet teachers belong to a union which combines the features of a fraternal organization , accrediting agency and a cultural and recreational club. Its prime concern is working conditions and salary. Salary is dependent on qualifications, length of service and number of hours of work . There is no differentiation between

the scale for primary and secondary teachers. Every five years an increase of from seven to ten percent is given. Extra money is earned by supervising study halls and acting as head teachers. Five to ten rubles a month is paid extra in foreign languages, mathematics and literature for marking notebooks. Russian teachers also can draw extra pay through other activities. The teacher earns more if he works in less desirable regions, such as the far north. Starting salary is 140 rubles a month or $126. He earns 180 to 200 rubles a month ($162$180) after 25 years. This is the basic salary and does not include pay for extra work. At the primary level this basic salary is for teaching 24 hours a week and at the secondary level for 18 hours a week. There is plenty of time to earn extra money. This is teaching or presentation time and during this period, teachers teach and do not assign written work to the pupils. The Teachers Union dispenses money for sick leave, maternity leave and pensions. Funds are obtained from the government and from members' dues. Medical care is free. Salaries were raised last in 1964, but the Union is in constant negotiations with the government on this 8

and other matters. Rents are low-from 12 rubles ($10.80) a month. On the whole, Soviet education has come a long way since 1917 when only 20 percent of the population was literate. Today everyone can read and write. The purpose of the schools is to perpetuate the tenets of Communism and the schools are manipulated to serve the aims of the state. In the United States our goal is to develop the individual. One of the weaknesses of the Russian educational system is its Central Ministry of Education. It is not responsive to the needs of different parts of the country. Even though local Soviets are aware of local conditions, the purse strings are held in Moscow. More books, more audio-visual equipment, higher salaries and better trained teachers are desperately needed in Russia. So even though Soviet education is marching forward , it has not yet caught up with the American standard-as varied as that standard is.

I thought this was a group tour!" "Madam, we are interviewing every tenth person to pass through London Airport. Will you tell us, please, your reasons for entering Britain, and where you are going?" "Mom, I am going to like it here! Look at all the minis! " " Yes, we will need three taxis - two for people and one for the luggage." Our great adventure began in May, 1968, when my husband accepted an appointment as Engineering Manager of the Burroughs Corp. plant in Strathleven, Scotland. From that time we were involved in the " biggest move" of our experience. Our last move had been one that covH , SORRY SIR,

ered only about a mile in Redford, Township, and that time we just moved everything we owned from one house to another. This time we had to sort through 16 years of accumulation, decide what to send by ship, what to carry wit h us, what to leave in our house and what to store with relatives. In addition there was an endless list of personal and business arrangementsresign from all clubs, decide what t o do about our house, sell two cars, inform correspondents of change of address . .. . But, like everyone else that prepares for a long distance move, we were ready when t he movers came for our 50 boxes of personal belongings. We decided not to send our furniture, as my husband had found a furnished

house to rent in Dum barton. We spent the month of July resting at a summer cottage on Lake Huron. All our boxes started their eight-week trip abroad on July 1. By the end of the month, we were finally ready to go--after a lovely round of farewell parties and shopping trips for traveling clothes. The comments at the beginning of this article are typical of the humor and trials of traveling with eight lively children and two adults. There was much debate over who would get the window seats on the plane, who would be responsible for the

"blankies and teddies" and who would carry the umbrellas. Even with all our careful planning, we still ended up with 9 carry-on bags and 23 pieces of luggage! Bill thought to paste a small number on each of the bags. He then made a master copy and could tell at glance the contents of a bag by its number. This was most useful for overnight hotel stays. Allowing for the five hour time difference, we finally arrived at our hotel in Renfrew, Scotland by 10:30 a.m. , after a 7 p.m. departure the night before. All of us were thrilled with the jet plane ride. We stayed in the hotel for about a week, then decided to "camp out" in our house in Dumbarton, while waiting for the arrival of our boxes. Our decision to leave the hotel was prompted by the antics of two of our young children. One night our four and six-year olds woke up and decided to get dressed in the middle of the night and go knocking on doors to find out where Mommy and Daddy were. As might be expected, the teenagers in the same hotel rooms with "the wanderers" slept through this episode. The big day finally arrived. With a customs officer in attendance, the bikes, dishes, typewriter and all the other 50 boxes were unloaded, and we really were " at home" in Dumbarton.

The majestic splendor of Loch Lomond captures the attention of the Monticello boys .



Dumbarton-where the River Leven meets the River Clyde-is a lovely place to live. Our house looks over the Clyde, and the parade of world shipping is a never-ending enchantment. We are two blocks from Levengrove Park, with its beautiful gardens, bowling greens, tennis courts and swings. A short walk down a wooded lane brings us to the shores of the Clyde. This area is so removed from the bustle of living that the only sounds are the lapping of the waves, the cooing of sea gulls and the occasional chug and toot of a ship passing. A short half mile in the other direction, down the hill and over the Leven bridge, is the center of Dumbarton. Learning to shop in Scotland was an adventure in itself. First I had to learn all about pounds and shillings. Next I had to decipher the new vocabulary-the ironmonger, the chemist, the draper, the newsagent and the fruiterer. My three and four-year olds, Bob and George, accompany me everywhere. They are even becoming used to the sight of whole carcasses hanging in the butcher shop . All the meat cuts are unfamiliar, and my kind butcher has been educating me like a new bride. He has even showed me the proper cooking and serving of the traditional Scottish haggis. The children are all attending the local schools and seem to have adjusted to the change quite well. The teenage boys are quite disappointed that the high school is not coed. Their curriculum consists of : religious knowledge, English, Latin, French, physics, chemistry, history, geography, math, music, art and gym. Primary schools begin at age five. Our Jim is in the second primary . With only kindergarten experience at home he has some catching up to do to compete with the others in his class. Learning the letter sounds in Scotland has had a noticeable effect on Jim. He speaks American but reads with a brogue. We did manage to do some sightseeing before the winter set in. Dumbarton means "the fortress of the Britons" and Dumbarton Rock, a volcanic plug of basalt, has a longer recorded history as a stronghold than any other place in BritANCHOR

ain. A visit to the famous rock and its castle was clearly the place to start. The panoramic view from the top of the rock was a memorable sight for all of us. We spent one Sunday afternoon driving through the beautiful Grampian Mountains and the Campsie Fells. Loch Lomond is only about a 15 mile drive, and the scenery well deserves to be remembered in song. Ben Lomond towers over the surrounding hills, the waters of the loch are clear and blue, and the green forest come right to the road. Here in Dumbarton, as in other parts

of Britain, there is a tremendous interest in amateur theatre . I recently attended the Western Division finals of the Scottish Community Drama Assn. in Greenock. It was a most interesting experience. The comments of the "adjudicator" provided a real education on some of the finer points of theatre arts. I have joined the Dumbarton Peoples Theatre and hope to develop my interest in dramatics. We have met many, many friendly people here. Our neighbors on Kirktonhill have gone out of their way to make us feet at home. We have even enjoyed playing bridge occasionally with one of the top ranking players in Scotland. The months ahead promise many more adventures . We are so happy that we came and I know that we will leave a bit of our hearts here when it is time to go. 11

alumna, never was content with being just a face in the crowd. At the University of Detroit, she was noted for her total involvement in sorority and school functions. After graduating as a history major, Fran settled down to a career in the business world. It didn't take long for Fran to decide that this wasn't for her. By the fall of 1968 Fran had made a




major decision and was ready to start on a journey to Vietnam. She had signed up to work for the Red Cross in Supplemental Regional Activities Overseas. Her Alpha Theta sisters weren't really surprised at Fran's new career plans. She always wanted to get involved " where the action was" and the Vietnam war was no exception. After a brief training program in Wa hington, D.C. , the Red Cro worker 1 ft A


for South Vietnam. One of Fran's first assignments was at Qui Nhon where she later served as Unit Director. At the present time there are about 105 girls working in Supplemental Recreational Activities Overseas. They are distributed in 17 units throughout Vietnam. An average unit consists of about six girls, but there is no such thing as an average girl. They come from a wide range of backgrounds. In Fran's unit they

have majors in journalism, psychology, English and Asian History. The girls come from South Carolina, California, Massachusetts and Michigan among others. Commenting on her job, Fran noted that as the advertisement says, 'It's not all coffee and donuts.' "It's listening to a soldier tell of his experiences in the field - emphasizing his narrow escape from death or injury. It's also talking to a young fellow who hasn't seen his sixmonth old baby." One of Fran's most important duties is with the clubmobile. Each day two girls are scheduled to visit a number of outlying military units. Their visits constitute a clubmobile run. "At Qui Nhon we have two such runs which means that four girls are out on the road everyday. On Friday and Saturday we only have one run," Fran explained. Boats or aircraft are used to reach each unit depending on its location. The girls use vehicles ranging from jeeps to 2 짜2 -ton trucks. The roads often leave much to be desired in the way of smoothness. However, Fran feels that the country's scenery makes you forget the discomfort of the roads. "There are green hills in certain areas. Down by the coast of the South China Sea where we live, there are palm trees and wide sandy beaches. It's a completely unique and delightful experience for me," she remarked. Clubmobile runs last an average of six to seven hours a day and cover 30 miles. The girls visit about 65 units a week with an average of 15 men per unit. The clubmobile workers present 50minute programs based on parlor games or quiz shows. Some deal with snorts, others music, movies, travel, history or art. Recalling her past months of duty, Fran noted that she has worked hard, done some sightseeing and spent quite a bit of money. "But all in all my experiences have been worth every minute and dime. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to come to the other side of the world. It gives you an entirely different outlook on life." 15

Chapter News

LaChrica Coyle of Rho Chapter was named Campus Sorority Girl of the Year at Southeastern State College , Durant, Oklahoma .



... On The Move Alpha Chapter started off the spring term with enthusiasm and high expectations for a tremendous rush. We drew up a new rush procedure which brought each of our sisters into the closest bond of sisterhood that we have ever felt. Our final rush party was held at the Theta Chi house at the University of Michigan. Here we greeted the rushees Hawaiian style. Our efforts were well rewarded, as we pledged 16 new girls. They are: Brenda Bauer, Emmy Cassetta, Kaye Cole, Rita Cole, Diane Dancer, Char Dennis, Cindy Freeman, Bev Hayes, Loresa Hill, Sue Johnson, Lynn LaForest, Cathy Pekarek, Ann Rubertschun, Beth Thomas, JoAnn Ulmer and Char Wilson. The month of May was a hectic one as the sisters took part in Greek Week

president Bonnie Rowse, Recording secretary Barb Trombly, Corresponding secretary Cindy Graves and Chaplain, Patti Heinricksen. At the Scholarship Dinner, Alpha Chapter received the honor of being placed third out of all Eastern Michigan University sororities. Sandy Wasowicz was tapped for Adahi, an honorary women's organization, and was also made a member of Omicron Gamma, a Greek honorary fraternity. Marlene Bach was initiated into Kappa Delta Pi, an honorary education society, and was also named Business Manager of EMU's yearbook, The Aurora. The year ended on a happy note as the sisters of Alpha Chapter made plans to continue sorority work throughout the summer by participating in the Associated Women Students' Big-Little Sister Program. It is aimed at orientating incoming freshmen to the hectic and exciting life at EMU. Marlene Bach The sisters of the Alpha Chapter enjoy talking by the fireside .

The new officers presided over this ceremony. They are: President Penny Frostic, Vice ANCHOR


Betas Pledge 20 New Members The Betas started off the year with a wonderful rush program led by Sue Buckley and Judy Conlin. Our first party was the "Tau Sweet Shoppe" with an oldfashioned ice cream parlor theme. Our rushees were served cones and our actives were dressed in green jumpers with yellow checkered aprons.

A week later we had our second party, "Sleepy Tau Heaven," a fun-filled pajama party at our house complete with cocoa and hot donuts. We sang farewell to our guests out on our front porch and presented each with a hand-decorated pillow case.


Our final party was a night club with the theme of the "Emerald and Gold Room" . Our rushees had punch and hor d'oeuvres as they played various games and chatted with the actives. Our program proved very successful as the Betas received the biggest pledge class at Cent ral! We are very proud of our following new members: Jan Blake, Kathy Bothwell, Margie Clark, Terry Cole, Patsy Galvin, Mary Gregoire, Debbie Jenkinson, Sally Johnson, Cheryl Klimek, Judi Kubiak, Chris Larson, Pam Mason, Dee McMillen, Wendie Novess, Linda Puffer, Jeanne Theisen, Bet h Thomas, Candy Timmer, Betsy Todd, and Karen Warner. Later in the semester the Betas had their annual Mom's Weekend. We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny weekend and our mothers all had a wonderful time staying in t he house, shopping, bowling, and being entertained by their daughters. We ended a fun-filled day by serenading our mothers and presenting them each with walnut salt and pepper shakers with the AST crest on them. Spring also brought our formal dinnerdance at the Embers Restaurant. We all had a lovely evening together with our sisters and dates. Greek Week was soon upon us and the Betas participated in full force. Our usual event, the Walkathon was a great success. The whole week gave us a chance to compete and mix with the other Greeks on campus. This year Beta is proud to announce some of the honors its members have received. First we are extremely proud of our Top Tau, Nancy Andras. Sigma Chi Fraternity chose one of our sisters, Jeanne Miller to be its sweetheart this year. Also Sigma Epsilon crowned another AST, Lyn Stewart, as their sweetheart at its annual ball. Also were pleased to announce our new top officers: Sara Jane Nelson, president; JoAnn Krauss, vice president; Sue Hess, treasurer, and Bevy Andras, secretary. Jan Clark


Shines tn Spring Rush Delta Chapter opened the new spring semester with the addition of 19 new pledges. Indiana initiated a new rush system this spring which gave the Taus a chance to shine. Our final rush party, "Under the Big Top," centered around a circus theme. The new pledges were hard working and developed a special closeness and spirit by working on several projects together. Their first major project was the annual spring pledge dance, this year entitled "The Wizard of Taus." The pledges presented their original skit and song and honored their pledge mother, Judy Baumgardner, with a gift in appreciation for her help during their pledging period. Delta's new sweetheart, Jim Shipley, pinmate of Sandy Yaruasi was announced at the dance. The big sisters of the new pledge class were honored with the clever Poco-TauNes party. The big sisters dressed as Indians and were paraded down the main highway to a nearby park where they participated in a peanut eating contest and other "original" games. The little sisters presented their big sisters with paddles and poems they wrote personally.

Especially exciting for Taus this semester was University Weekend. We made a fine showing this year at the Powderpuff Football Game and are proud to display the second place trophy for our presentation of a medley from the Broadway musical "Fiddler on the Roof." We were directed by our song leader Elaine Tselepis . Taus are proud of Suzie Goldy and Connie Herald for recently being chosen ROTC Kaydeens. Pledge Janet Mastalski was chosen sponsor for the Trick Drill section of Pershing Rifles. This year the Delta Chapter again took an active part in the cancer drive and in the Ugly Man on Campus Contest. Former president Marie Drag and newly installed president Val Bencivenga along with several sisters enjoyed State Day at Slippery Rock State College. This semester closed with the initiation of our 19 new sisters and our new patroness Mrs. Klausing, wife of Indiana's head football coach. We are proud and happy to welcome Mrs. Klausing as our new patroness and also as a new sister. Cathy Riester

Zetas Enjoy Successful Spring Zetas at Lock Haven State were kept busy from rush until the initiation of officers last spring. Zeta's rush was very successful. The theme for the final party was "The Roaring Twenties." Zetas turned their imaginations loose and showed up at the Kappa Delta Rho house as flappers , gangsters, and policemen. The next day a pizza party was given in honor of Zeta's 12 new pledges. They are: Vivian Auker, Beverly Boice, Jacqueline Case, Maxine Cordrey, Wendy Dodson, Denise Elchak, Deborah Gore, Linda Keister, Louise Krause, Elaine Paglione, Mary Thompson, and Doris Trimmer. The sisters kept the pledges busy by making them carry trays, clean rooms, and run errands. The pledges retaliated by greasing the door knobs to the sisters' rooms and stealing their paddles. These pranks gave them their nickname--"The Dirty Dozen!" Informal initiation was held for the last two pledge classes at Rauchtown State Park. Pledges were put through their paces as they searched for missing articles. Hell week was the final task for the pledges. They were kept busy by singing original songs to the sisters, cleaning rooms, wearing green and gold knee socks and fingernails, and carrying candy for the sisters. The pledges gave a party for the sisters entitled, "Thursday Night At The Movies." Sisters came as their favorite television or movie characters and presented hilarious skits. Our proud pledges were formally initiated April 27 when a dinner was held in their honor at the Dutch Inn. 28

Zetas had many other activities to keep them busy. Our annual dinner dance was held in Williamsport at the Oaks Club. For spring weekend Zetas built a booth entitled, " Please Don' t Eat the Daisies." Lollipops were given as prizes. Greek Olympics, sponsored by Lambda Chi Alpha, was an important event for Zetas. We got our revenge over last year's winner, Zeta Tau Alpha, by beating them by four points. Barb Yoos showed that Taus are always on top as she made a record breaking high jump of 4'9" . We later celebrated with a victory dinner and party with Kappa Delta Rho, the fraternity winner. Zetas were well represented at this year's State Day at Slippery Rock. Here it was decided that next year's State Day would be held at Lock Haven. Mary Thompson

Theta Chapter Spends Busy rear Winter quarter was a busy one for Theta Chapter at Wayne State University. For informal rush, we had a coke and chip party. Here we wore our sorority outfits which are dark green A-line skirts and vests with long-sleeved blouses. Our second party was a preferential formal tea. Through our efforts, we gained three pledges, Debbie Franczak, Sue Mihalko, and Linda Wing. We joined our alumnae for a formal dinner dance in February. This gala affair was held at the Georgian Inn. The highlight of the quarter, was Panhel Sing, and Theta participated in this for the first time. After months of hard practice under the leadership of our music chairman, Mary Franzen, we presented our theme, "Sing for your upper." We were dressed as hoboes wearing A


old jackets and pants with red and yellow patches. White gloves added a touch of ele~ance to our attire. Although we did not wm an award, we had a lot of fun performing in this event. In March, Theta Chapter installed new ?fficers. They are: President Barbara BoJakowski; Vice President Sue Tatus路 Treasurer Alice Katarsky; and Recordin~ Secretary Carole Glod. Spring quarter proved to be hectic also Our Di~t?ct Yice President, Mrs. Ralph ~ross VISited m April for chapter inspect.wn and to talk with us about sorority Ide. Spring rush gave us two pledges, Linda ~uta and Sue Szeczpanski, who are a del~ghtful addition to our chapter. We initiated our winter informal pledges into the bonds of AST, and surprised them with a dinner at the Chin Tiki. For our social service project Theta sold tootsie pops, and we used th~ money to buy a movie screen and a playpen for the pediatrics ward at Detroit General Hospital. We were proud to have Mary Franzen represent AST on the dream court of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity this past year. Valentina Hotra was chosen as Theta's Top Tau. In May, we honored our mothers with a tea at the Hillberry Lounge. This gave the mothers an opportunity to become acquainted with the other girls, and to become acquainted with the activities of Alpha Sigma Tau. The Panhellenic Honors Banquet concluded spring quarter. Dianne Peters was our candidate for Sorority Girl of the Year. We nominated Sue Tatus for best panhellenic representative from AST, and we presented her with a plaque. Because this was our first year on panhellenic council, we won the "baby" award for best participation on the council. In the humorous category, Sue Tatus won an award for being the most talkative. In June, we had a luncheon for our graduating seniors, and we presented them with recognition pins. We were sad to say goodby to Mary Franzen, Sandy Kowalski, JoAnne Mirich, Dianne Peters, and JoAnne Timidanski. Penny Olds ANCHOR

Omicrons Are Tops in Scholarships After rush with a colorful Mexican theme entitled AST-iesta, Omicron Chapter welcomed 10 new pledges. Marceline Cassity was chosen as best pledge. The pledge period was highlighted by a biglittle-sister party with a night club theme. A Mother's banquet, held at the Town and Country Restaurant in Princeton West Virginia, was an enjoyable event: Mothers attending received long-stemmed yellow roses. Several money-raising projects were held this semester. We sold candy, had a bake sale and a car wash and also sold sandwiches and coffee during final examinations. As a result of these and other projects, Omicron Chapter was able to purchase land near the campus on which a lodge will later be built. At the annual Concord College Spring Sing, the new spring outfits were shown. The perky yellow A-line dress was the envy of every girl on campus! Three Omicrons will represent the Sorority next year on the cheerleading squad. They are Sherri Stinson head cheerleader, Gail West, and Barbara Shutt. The Spring Formal, "Tau Island," was a great success. Among the awards pre-

In honor of the senior members, we held a breakfast at the home of our sponsor, Miss Amy Jean Greene. Following final exams, Alpha Gamma had a "Sorority Weekend" at Lakeland Lodge near Hot Springs.

Pledges, the active chapter, and alumnae also attended. At the close of the program, the Mothers' Club presented each senior with a silver dish engraved with the letters AST. The chapter adviser, Mrs. Glenn Downing, was honored at the banquet and the alumnae chapter presented her with a gift. Another event of the evening was the presentation of the Nyda Sebring Award by the alumnae chapter. The plaque is not presented every year, but is awarded to a senior on the basis of contribution to the sorority, scholarship, and contribution to the college. Linda Robertson was named as this year's recipient. Other seniors welcomed by the alumnae chapter include: Sandy Bishop Stonerock, Sandie Staiger, Ruth Ann Miller and Pam Wellhausen. The latest rush news from Alpha Delta is a rush booklet for new Southwest Missouri State College students. It was put together by the Panhellenic Council. The booklet includes a general introduction to Greek life at SMS and four pages are devoted to each sorority. The editor of each chapter constructed her own layouts, including pictures and copy.

Alpha Epsilon Welcomes 28 Pledges Winter rush ushered in 28 new pledges to the Alpha Epsilon Chapter. These pledges were to help the active chapter through very successful winter and spring quarters. Alpha Taus main tained t heir top scholastic position among the other sororities for winter quarter. The AST candidate Sherry Donaghy brought honor to the sorority when she was crowned Greek Ball Queen. In April we held our annual Parents' Day Banquet. The events of t he weekend introduced many parents to Alpha Epsilon's competitive activities. The Alpha Tau's, paired with the men of Tau Kappa

A large turnout made our annual AST Spring Picnic quite a success. Steaks were served for dinner followed by "honors and awards" for some of the sisters and their dates. Lake Argyle was the scene of several exchanges with the fraternities on our campus throughout the quarter. At the close of the year we said goodby to our graduating seniors at a special picnic. The Alpha Epsilon chapter is proud of its accomplishments during this past year. We are now looking forward to a successful fall rush and other events of the coming school year. Suzanne Quigley


The Alpha Zeta Chapter at Queens College leaves behind an exciting, busy and a fun-filled semester. At our first rush, "The Yellow Rose Rush," the sisters of Alpha Omega from the Brooklyn College Chapter joined us in singing sorority songs. We gained a new pledge--Susan Shear. We entered Sue as our Pledge Queen along with 10 other pledges from the different sororities on campus. Hearing that the picture "Oliver" was so good, we decided to see for ourselves. So, the girls of Alpha Zeta decided to have a theater party and follow the show with a dinner. We took in the Sunday matinee in Manhattan seeing " Oliver." After "Oliver," we went to the Hawaii Kai where we all stuffed ourselves with delicious polynesian food. At the College's Award Night dinner, Alpha Zeta was awarded the Scholastic Cup, for the sorority having the highest cumulative average. (2.888). May 4, we had our annual motherdaughter luncheon. This year's luncheon was held at Burburans. We started the meal with a toast and followed with a roast beef dinner and a special cake for dessert. Since we love our fathers just as much as our moms, it was no more than fair to treat dad to a father-daughter luncheon. The luncheon was held on Long Island at the Viking Manor. This father-daughter luncheon was a first for the chapter and a delightful first it was! To top the semester off, we were proud of Christine Frey. Chriss was Top Tau from the Alpha Zeta. At the end of the spring semester we said goodby to three graduating eniors. Our president, Fran Fascetta wa one of



the graduates. Fran was a great president and I know the sorority will miss her. To Chriss Frey, we wish her much luck in her teaching career. As for Mary Hausner, she leaves for California where she'll be living and has a teaching position waiting for her this fall. The new officers and members are looking forward to the new term and will continue to strive for all that Alpha Sigma Tau stands for. Carolyn Kolar

As " widdl e kids ," th e excited act ives await th e " AST Big Top "-a pledge party .

Alpha Etas Full of Energy After new officers were elected, the Alpha Etas of Alma College took students back to the "Gay 90's" and Dolly's Place at our annual all-campus Valentine's Day dance, "Amo Te." Students danced to the soft music of a three-piece orchestra, rested on park benches, and refreshed themselves with cider and bagels. The sisters entertained with old, familiar tunes like "In the Good Old Summertime," "Daisy," "Ta Ra Ra Boom De-Re, " and "After the Ball." With "Hello Dolly" playing in the background, Alma College's President and his wife led the procession of couples through a huge heart. As favors we made picture hat pin-cushions out of gaily-flowered material. We lost no time, for spring rush activities began the following day. Rushees watched "Wednesday Night at the Movies," as we presented a 30-minute film with soundtrack of the ASTs in action-decorating and rehearsing for our dance, playing intermural basketball, and preparing for rush activities. The actives dressed as famous movie and television stars, ranging from the ANCHOR

Beatles in "Yellow Submarine" to Julie Andrews in "The Sound of Music. " Rushees ate candy and popcorn from a realistic concession stand. Spring rush brought us 12 lovely pledges -Mary Kay Ariss, Jenny Branch, Laurel Braun, Emily Carter, Sue Constant, Charlene Doty, Diane D' Arcy, Betty Goodman, Debby Henderson, Sherry Leonard, Vicki McAllister, and Sheryl Robertson. Dressed as "widdle kids," we went to the "AST Big Top" for their pledge party given in our honor. On April 28 formal initiation gave us 12 new actives who presented paddles to their big sisters at our initiation dinner at the Holiday Inn . Following rush, the Alpha Etas began exercising their vocal cords for the annual all-campus competitive Song Fest. Presenting a program of love songs through the ages, we employed Peter, Paul, and Mary's song, "The Song Is Love," for our theme. The many hours of practice paid off, for we were awarded first place honors. As a social service project all of the sororities on campus participated in " Ironing Day." Proceeds were given to underprivileged people in the area for clothing. We were very proud of Jeanne Boyden and Kim Kimble who represented us on the Campus Day court. Near the end of spring term, we pre41

sented perfume bottles with the AST crest to departing seniors at a lovely dessert given by our patronesses. As a very successful year drew to a close, we did not really say goodby for the summer. Sara Braun is editing a summer newsletter for our chapter. We are all looking forward to another exciting year when we return to the Alma College campus in the fall.

Alpha Kappa Says Farewell To Mom The spring semester has brought us a new active, Barb Priscilla, as well as five


new pledges. They are: Betsy Watson, Barb Noll, Janet Fertig, Sharyn Gregory, and Mary Ellen Nuse. Together with other pledges, they collect clothes for the Goodwill Industries and also participate in the all-college pledges' Cleaning Day for the city of Marietta. In sports events, Alpha Kappa took first place in the basketball intramural, and we have six players on the Field Hockey Team. Our Pledge and Senior Formal was held in the Betsey Mills Club with a steak banquet at the Murphy Supper Club before t he dance. Our theme was " Flying High" and the pledges received gifts from their big sister during the formal. The seniors were given little kites as souvenirs. For the annual junior skits, the Alpha Kappas put on a skit showing the first year that Marietta College became coeducational. At the annual Senior Dessert, held at the Betsey Mills Club, we honored the seniors with silver bracelets. Wendy Barry was presented with the best pledge award, and the dessert ended with our sorority theme song, "Somewhere." Individual Taus were honored this semester. Ellen Charske was chosen to be a member of Phi . Beta Kappa. Intaglio, women's leadership honorary, tapped Natalie Jones and Debbie Debaets for membership. Also Marti DeWolfe has been named the "Most Outstanding Senior Athlete" by the Women's Athletic Association. Carol Seach was chosen to be a member of Tau Pi Phi, national economics and business honorary, while Donna J anezek was initiated by Beta Beta Beta, national biological society. Toward the end of the semester, a farewell party was given for Mom Miller, our house mother for the past years. We presented Mom with a little gift voucher in order to show our appreciation for her service during the past years. Spring has also brought us a lot of good news. Showers were given for Jeanne Deprefontaine, Lily Staheli, Natalie Jones, Cheryl Bambach, and Edith Lamb. That concludes our spring semester, and we are all looking forward to next year.

Our rush theme for fall is " Our Tau's Big Top." We have already begun working, and look forward to welcoming in many new pledges. Paula Partington


Nu Chapter at Central Missouri State College. Fran Morgan was our UMOC Queen Candidate during the Ugly Man On Campus charity drive. We donated all of the money we collected to the USO. During the spring we were busy with many activities including pin pledgings, a pledge scavenger hunt and a pledge party. During this time we were also honored with a visit from our National President Miss Elizabeth Wilson. On March 16 the Alpha Nu Chapter was' proud to welcome seven new girls into its sisterhood. They are: Linda Allen, Angie Brewster, Maureen Cunniff, Barb Austin, Debi McCain, Becky Hunt and J ammie Pickrell. The Best Pledge Award was given to Barb Austin for her outstanding work. During the spring we pledged four new girls: Jean Kuester, Linda Draffen, Linda Conley and Chris Foley. They are now working very hard and looking forward to going active in the first weeks of the fall term. April 9, the women of Central Missouri State College attended a convocation during Womens Week. At the convocation, Judy Leeper was pledged to Tassels an organization petitioning Mortar Board. Our formal pledge class was recognized because of its grade point average was the highest of all the pledge classes. Linda Craig was also recognized for her outstanding work as a member of Delta Psi Kappa. "Country Gardens" was the theme of our spring formal. As you stepped inside Pertle Springs Lodge, you walked beneath an archway, covered with garlands. The band was set inside a gazebo and an ultra-violet light that hung from the ceiling gave the room its finishing touch. The end of April proved to be a busy time for the Greeks at CMS. During Greek Week we presented two awards: one for our Top Tau, and one for the graduating senior with the highest grade point average. At the Greek Games we won first place in the sorority tug-of-war. The members of the winning team were: Mary Mitchell, Sharon Eaton, Patti Klug, Linda Allen, Angie Brewster, Debi Me-


Cain, Annie Turner, Linda Conley, Linda Draffen and Kathy Mohr. Some of our other spring activities were our spring rush picnic and our hymn sing at the Pleasant View Nursing Home. We also participated in intramural basketball, bowling, and softball. The Alpha Nus initiated a new idea this spring with our first annual Parents' Day Picnic. With more than 100 people in attendance, we started out with a picnic lunch provided by the parents. Then we presented a skit and songs that were written especially for the occasion. Since it was Mother's Day, we had a special yellow rose presentation for our Mothers. The last big event of the school year was a breakfast to honor the graduating seniors at Doctor and Mrs. Maxon's house. Each senior was presented with an AST charm in honor of her graduation. This summer the Alpha Nus are planning a retreat at Pertle Springs Lodge in Warrensburg. We are looking forward to getting together with all of our sisters before school starts in the fall.

Alpha Omicron Wins Greek Week Honors The spring semester at Clarion State found the Alpha Omicron Chapter busier and more successful than ever. This semester's rush period was highlighted by some unique and enjoyable parties. Our informal party had as its theme " Roaring Taus," and it featured a speakeasy, a variety show presented by the sisters, and a machine gun raid. Both the sisters and the rushees used their imaginations in creating flapper costumes for this event. Our formal party "The Wizard of A~

Taus," followed the story of rushee Dorothy's journey to Oz. When she arrived there, she was advised to follow her heart in choosing a sorority. At the conclusion of rush, 16 girls chose to pledge Alpha Sigma Tau. In March, the Taus held their annual dinner-dance, the "Yellow Rose Formal," at The Edge in Pittsburgh. The beautiful view from this restaurant which overlooks the city provided the romantic setting for a lovely evening. At the formal dance, we presented And or P-J obb with our second annual "Man of the Year" award. Mr. P -J obb, the husband of our advisor, has

done many things to help our chapter during the past year. Greek Weekend brought more honors for the Taus. A patriotic theme carried out in our presentation of "This Is My Country" and "Let There Be Peace On Earth" won us a second place trophy at Greek Sing and invitations to sing for many community groups. We also won the second place honors in scholarship and third place honors in Greek Olympics. The Taus at Clarion completed the semester with a Mother's Day Tea in May. Nancy Granberg

Alpha Pi Top Money Raisers

Rush activities were popular topics for discussion at State Day.

Alpha Pi Chapter experienced spring with an air of excitement which helped to complete its semester activities. Formal rush was a busy and enjoyable time for the sisters. All worked especially hard in entertaining rushees in an Oriental atmosphere for our "Tau House of the August Moon" theme. At the close of the pledging period, 22 pledges were the victims of "Fun Night" which included raw egg shampooing, banana eating contests, water battles and other "hair raising" episodes. On April29, our 22 pledges entered the Tau sisterhood for life. The pledge class presented the sisters with an AST door crest and at initiation contributed a tea service set to the chapter room. Alpha Pi was honored in sponsoring a Pennsylvania State Day at Slippery Rock State College. All the state chapters were represented at this function. Entertainment included a noon luncheon, group discussions and singing. During Greek Week, Tau sisters were proud to have placed first in Greek Torch Relay, second in Greek Olympics and third place in the overall standings. Tau's title of Greek Goddess was held by Joy Wagner, and Carol Joseph held Tau's title of May Queen.


Not only were the sisters proud of their Greek achievement, they were all happy with the many honors they received. Seven Taus were installed into Delta Psi Kappa: Mary J o Geyer, Janie Homer, Jan ice Todd, Karen Meyers, Tina Skolnik and Linda Honsperger. Sue Cole was tapped by Lambda Epsilon Delta and Kappa Delta Pi. Congratuations are also extended to Janie Bell, Claire Hoover and Carolyn Mene who were selected to be members of the Rocklette marching squad. We salute our Top Tau Sue Cole and our best

Alpha Xis Hold First Dinner Dance Welcome to the Tau Cafe was the way the Alpha Xis of Mansfield State College started a busy spring semester. The Tau Cafe then turned into the Geisha Tau Pagoda House. These were the two themes for the formal rush parties that eventually gave us 15 pledges. Our pledges for the spring class were : Kenny Bankes, Marlena Baker, Ann Bentz, Bobby J o Bradshaw, Rosemary Cuiccio, Debbie Grow, Patsy Heist, Arlene Lucas, Sue Nayduch, Diane Proctor, Janice Quell, Marie Streiff, Sharon Todd, Cathy Werts and Diane Wurth. Ten of the Alpha Xis traveled to Slippery Rock State College for State Day in March. The chapter won the award for the largest representation, and the girls came back brimming with ideas. This year for the first time the sisters decided to hold a dinner-dance. Everyone was excited and full of anticipation since it was our first one. Everyone was pleased to see it be a success and it may even become an annual affair. At the dinner the award for Top Tau was presented to Jackie Zeller.

The election of officers was the next event of the busy Alpha Taus. The girls elected to office were Margaret Leahy, president; Margaret Olsefski, vice president; Delmar Ratkowski, recording secretary; Janet Socash, corresponding secretary ; Cindy Mabon, treasurer; Becky Rarig, chaplain; Ellen Smith, historian ; Eileen Carlin, editor; Betty McChesney, pledge mistress; Jean Sullivan; rush chairman; and Pat Segur, custodian. May was filled to the brim with activity. May 4th was initiation of new sisters and it was followed by a banquet. Maggie George, a senior sister, gave a beautiful and meaningful talk. For our Founders' Day our pledges gave us a single yellow rose in green ribbon. The Alpha Xi chapter was four years old this May. On May 6th the sisters entertained the underprivileged children of Mansfield at a picnic. There were games and contests and a picnic supper. The children had a great time and so did the sisters.

Alpha Rho Chapter at Youngstown State University looked forward to a busy winter and spring quarter. The most important event for the sisters was to see their first dance get off the ground as a big success. Following our dance, spring rush was in full swing within a few weeks.

for our parties, and we received three pledges. The singing talent of the sorority was brought together as the sisters prepared, "Till There Was You," for the annual Greek Sing competition. Hard hours of practice were put into this event but again being only our first time in competition we will have to try harder next year to bring home a trophy. We musn't let beauty go unspoken. Lovely Mary Lynn Miller was our candidate for the Spring Weekend festivities. The girls worked hard and cleverly campaigned Mary Lynn. The annual Miss YSU Pageant was held with two of our ASTs participating among the 15 finalists. This pageant is held in conjunction with the Miss America Pageant. Our contestants were Carol Bradick and Kathy Onderko. These girls spent endless numbers of hours, days, and weeks preparing their talent, poise, and beauty for the final competition. Our sisters didn't take the title of Miss YSU, but the title of Miss Congeniality went to Kathy Onrlerko. Elections of the year saw Alpha Sigma Tau gaining a seat on Student Council (Mary Lynn Miller) and also gaining the seat as Collegiate Panhellenic President was Carol Morelli. Service can't be left unnoticed. The sisters helped with the mail and phone correspondence for the new Youngstown Symphony. Much more important was the project the girls executed in raising $100 for an eight year old local boy who has a rare disease. The girls worked three days raising money for Brian Cimanero. His family appreciated the kind gesture, and we had a feeling of accomplishment. The sisters at Youngstown State University had a very busy winter and spring and as summer progresses we are now engaged in house negotiations which we hope will end in our favor. This is a big step for Alpha Rho, and I believe there will be many more.

A !ph a Sigma Wins Scholarship Cup

Dean Boucher presents the scholarship cup.

The challenges, work, and rewards of Alpha Sigma's spring term brought our first year to a close with new insights into sorority life. One outstanding honor was receiving the President's Scholarship Cup. Dean Henry M. Boucher made the presentation at the annual Panhellenic Banquet, April 8. Alpha Sigma Tau placed first out of the six campus sororities. The Panhellenic Council award, "Miss Congeniality," was given to Marsha Sommers. We held the spring banquet and formal dance at the Holiday Inn, using the theme, "Moonlight and Roses." Decorations included a lawn scene with yellow roses, a fountain, and a suspended moon. Guests were: President and Mrs. F. Clark Elkins, Dean and Mrs. H. M. Boucher, Rita Gramann, Dean of Women, and Dr. Glenda Clyde, advisor. Alpha Sigma's local social service projects were blood donations to the Red Cross and participation in a community bread drive for the March of Dimes. We were listed among the campus organizations having the highest percentage of members donating blood. AN HOR

Moves From Colony to Chapter March 1, 1969, marked the day the sixteen original charter members of Alpha Tau Colony had been anticipating-the installation of the Alpha Tau Colony to the official Alpha Tau Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau. Consequently, the thirty sisters were proud, excited, and possessed an overabundance of enthusiasm. The sisters demonstrated their desire to establish a larger yet more intricate sisterhood of Alpha Tau by welcoming a spring pledge class of nineteen ambitious girls. The climax of the pledge period was a formal dance in Erie at the Holiday Inn. At this time Eve Zamoski, pledge mistress, presented the Best Pledge Award to Debbie Young, president of the pledge class. For the first time, the sisters presented the Yellow Rose Award: a silver loving cup to the sister whom we felt had done the most for the sorority. Mrs. John Yon, our advisor, presented this exceptional honor to Linda Lafferty, Alpha Tau's first president. The pledges then presented the sisters with a yellow rose lined chest which is to be used for sorority possessions. Of special interest was the presentation of a scroll to Dr. John Yon, Edinboro's Dean of Students, naming him "Alpha Sigma Tau Sweetheart of 1969." The naming of Dr. John Yon as our "sweetheart" created much attention as t?e Spectator, the college newspaper, carned a feature article on the event. On April 19, 1969, the title of "pledge" was relinquished and nineteen happy girls were now sisters. Two weeks after the initiation an election of the fall officers was held. Those elected were: Debbie Young, president; Jean Berton, first vice president; Kathy Pesak, second vice president; Paula Teplica, treasurer;


Kathy Gazvoda, recording secretary; Debi Pfeiffer, corresponding secretary; Mary Young, editor; Dale Snyder, historian; J o Sleva, custodian; and Ann Musolino, housing director. During the course of the spring term, the Alpha Taus participated in various campus events. At Greek Sing, under the directorship of Sue Vickery, we sang, "Looking Forward to the Future." During Carnival Weekend we supported the Delta Sigma Phis and Sigma Alpha Nus candidate, Eileen Vukkivic, who became the 1969 May Queen. Sister Karen Brennan received recognition for her excellent performance as Hermia in " A Midsummer Night's Dream." Finally, four sisters participated in a tutoring program for underprivileged children in Erie. Those sisters were: Jean Berton, Dale Snyder, Mary Young, and Maureen Miller. This summer our corresponding secretary, Debi Pfeiffer is tightening the bonds of sisterhood by publishing the Alpha Tau Inquirer, a bimonthly newsletter relating sorority reminders and, most important, keeping each sister informed as to what the other sisters are doing this summer. We are eagerly anticipating an exciting fall , though our chapter will regret the absence of fifteen sisters who will not be on campus due to graduation and student teaching. Mary Young

Alpha Upsilon Receives Charter Phi Upsilon was founded in 1951 as a local sorority at Bryant College, Providence, R. I. In September of 1968 we were ribbon and pin pledged as Alpha Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau. We were initiated on March 23, 1969. All the girls


were very proud and happy that day when we all received our pins. Some of our activities during the year included our pledge formal, our annual Parents' Banquet which consisted of the installation of new officers. Also at this banquet we honored our retiring President Alyce Rossi. We also had a party for the seniors. Each sister did a short skit on "This Is Your Life." Our beach party was a wonderful end of the year send-off with all the girls looking forward to seeing each other again in September. Penny Baran

State Day Highlights Activities June is upon us and Denver alumnae are busy with plans for vacations, trips to the mountains, guests, summer school classes and the myriads of activities we all try to pack into these few months. We will bring a busy spring season to a close in June with a trip to Sunshine Farm where Lolly Pittman and Betty Englen will be hostesses for luncheon, a business meeting and installation of officers for next year. Highlight of the spring's activities was the annual State Day get-together. Eleven Denver alumnae members traveled to Greeley to meet with alumnae and active members at the home of Marianne Pul-

liam. After a lovely ceremony in which the actives were initiated into the alumnae chapter, we enjoyed a delicious luncheon and a delightful program. We're looking forward to seeing several of the new alumnae who will be located in the Denver area at our meetings next year. The New Year found us meeting with Anne Todd and Betsy Rothschopf for a lovely luncheon. In February, Cherie Clark and Bobbie Lowe helped us add to our favorite recipe collections. Each member brought a favorite recipe and salad. Then Cherie gathered all the recipes, had them mimeographed, and gave us each a copy at the March meeting at Gayle Ball's. They really come in handy. In April we met for luncheon with LaVonne Carlton and Margaret Troisi at La Vonne's new home and made plans for State Day and a social get-together for members and their husbands in May. After a busy year we're all looking forward to fall and hope that all o~r alumnae in the Denver area will join us then. Marianne Lamberty

~ Detroit I . .. Exchange Teacher Returns Detroit I Alumnae have been rolling tended; of these, eleven couples were along in the new year with the guidance Theta Chapter collegiates. In March, Hila Collins was our hostess. of our capable President, Millie Cislo. January began the new year with our first meeting at Millie's home. The business session was spent in planning our dinner dance in February which has become an annual affair. Joan Dailey, chairman of the dance, carried out the plans. The social hour after the meeting provided time for chatting over cake and coffee. The dinner dance held on February 8 at the new Georgian Inn in St. Clair Shores was a huge success.

Initiati on of new members

The highlight of the evening was the entertaining talk by our own sorority sister, Dorothy Dobos. Dorothy spent last year

in England as an exchange teacher. Her color slides of her school activities and her travels throughout England were beautiful and lent special color, both literally and figuratively, to her talk. We journeyed to Birmingham for our May meeting. It was a beautiful spring evening, a perfect setting to view Marjorie Snell's lovely new home. This was our annual meeting with election of officers for next fall the major item on the agenda. Our spring season ended with a luncheon at Shepard's Inn planned by Juanita Bouffard. We were proud and pleased to have six graduates of Theta Chapter with us. After their initiation, our officers for the coming year were installed. Emily Fitzgerald

~Detroit Ill ... Has Successful Social Season As welcome as the summer hiatus is, the first hint of frost always finds AST members eagerly awaiting the coming season. Our new officers will be planning an exciting program for next year. Last season was quite successful for Detroit III. Attendance and enthusiasm were high. In September Mary Beth Anderson held a pizza party in her lovely new home in Southfield, which made our organization meeting very enjoyable. Founders' Day planning at the home of Jean Wersching occupied us in October. Special thanks go to Kathy George for her efforts in working with Ellenjane Soltez of Detroit I in making this a memorable Founders' Day celebration for all of us. Before the Christmas rush set in, a number of us went as a group to see "The Subject Was Roses" at a suburban theater. Our January outing, a basketball game


between the University of Detroit and Dayton, was especially well attended. Pat and Frank Zoch generously hosted an after-game cocktail party. Business meetings and the election of officers occupied our February and March meetings held in the homes of Mary Kay L'Esperance and Carol Napier. The initiation of officers highlighted our annual spring luncheon held this year at the Sheraton Inn in Warren. A special welcome was also extended to our newly initiated members, Barbara Musial and Marge McDonald. Social notes also included best wishes to new brides, Kathy ( Ceru) Turan and Dorothy (Dowd) Robertson and congratulations to proud mothers, Mary Beth Anderson and Kathy George. We all look forward to another busy and happy year and hope that our Alpha Theta sisters in the area will join u for our activities. Carol Napier A


~Flint ... Stories Thrill Guests Flint Alums' biggest event of the spring was our annual Mother and Daughter Luncheon which was attended by more than 35 members and guests. Our second year of having Mrs. Young as our guest story teller thrilled the guests as she did the first year. Other events of the spring included the silent auction which netted many dollars for the treasury. Our local philanthropy is still the Ingathering which brings money and clothing for those who are unable to provide for themselves. A yearly gift to either Beta or Alpha Eta provides incentive to Flint Alumnae to raise money. Jeanne Gleason Clark

~Greeley. • • Impersonations Entertain at State Day Approximately thirty alumnae from the Denver and Greeley Alumnae Chapters attended the annual Colorado State Day luncheon at the home of Mary Ann Pulliam in Greeley on May 17. Just before the luncheon, six girls from the collegiate chapter were initiated into the Greeley Alumnae Chapter. They were Jackie Dunlap, Marty D'Buyrne, Nancy Eisenman, Kathy Kennedy, Sharon Lewis and Barbara Sweeney. A delicious luncheon of baked ham, variety of salads and dessert was prepared and served by the Greeley Alumnae Chapter. Mrs. Donald Lebsack served as toastmistress for the occasion. An outstanding program of impersonations and excerpts from several musical comedies was presented. ANCHOR

The Greeley Alumnae Chapter had a final business meeting at the home of President Chita Lebsack on May 20. The following officers were elected for 19691970: Chita Lebsack, president; Phyllis Evans, vice-president; Gwen Boyer, secretary-treasurer; Dolores J amiesen, historian; Carol Bohen, chaplain; Lois Brown, editor. Lucile Anderson

~ Kirksville . •

Alpha Sigma Graduates Initiated May 28, 1969, was a very special day for many people at the Northeast Missouri State College, Kirskville, Missouri, as it was graduation day. For several members of the Alpha Sigma Chapter it was a double pleasure. At 2:00p.m. that afternoon seven members of Alpha Sigma Chapter were initiated into an alumnae chapter. We assembled in the Alumni Room of the Student Union where Mrs. Betty Shive, Alpha Epsilon's alumnae representative, conducted the initiation ceremony. She was assisted by Dr. Glenda Clyde, Alpha Sigma faculty adviser. The following girls were initiated: Carol Mosher, president; Marsha Sommers, secretary; Nancy Dykstra, treasurer; Gayle Houf, Ann Hunter, Marcia Irvin, and Gay Powell. Ann Hunter was chosen by the collegiate chapter as alumnae represen~tive­ adviser. Before the seniors were officially organized as an alumnae chapter, they presented the underclasswomen of the chapter with money to purchase robes. The Alpha Sigma Alumnae Chapter has planned to meet for the informal and the formal rush parties which will be held in October. We also plan to return to the campus for the festivities of the Homecoming fall semester. Marsha Sommers 55

Checks and Happiness

Lansing Alumnae are looking forward to the usual summer activities following a very pleasant and productive year. Under local social service, the Lansing Y.W.C.A. received a check from Alpha Sigma Tau for a two week camp scholarship enabling a needy girl to attend the summer day camp. Added to the regular national social service expansion assessment, was a check from the group as well as a box to Pine Mountain. We were also pleased to send a check to Alpha Eta Chapter for any use desirable. These projects were made possible through the sale of the lovely Gwen Frostic products which our alumnae chapter sponsored under the leadership of Allura Custer. Attendance at our meetings this year has been unusually good. Carolyn Forche

was welcomed back to the fold as well as Nancy Rohrer Kruger, a former member. We are looking forward to the last meeting of the year, a bohemian, at the country home of Margaret Twork. In May Margaret Craddock showed some slides of India and Bali taken on a recent ten weeks' trip around the world, the dream of a liftetime for her. Allura Custer reports that their daughter, Mary Sue, soon to be a senior at Albion College and interested in dramatics, will work and take part in the Ledges Playhouse summer stock productions. Gertrude Kimmich and husband Bob again spent the winter in Florida. Mary Walton and Isabel Welch were also visitors in the South. Margaret Craddock

~ little Rock...Cartoonist Sparks State Day For the Little Rock Alumnae, this year has been a busy one. Early last fall, we voted to take as our social service project "Youth Home," a home for adolescent girls with emotional problems. Each month a small cash donation was made as well as a collection of personal items to be delivered to the home. State Day, which was held March 22, at the North Hills Country Club in North Little Rock was a huge success! Approximately 110 collegiate members and alums

attended. Planned activities included a "getting to know you" period, a luncheon and a style show. George Fisher, a local political cartoonist of some renown, presented an unusual program of folk music and cartooning. His sketches were the most sought after souvenirs of t he day! Outstanding collegiate members from Upsilon, Alpha Gamma, and Alpha Mu were honored with a gift. Julia Hendrickson

~ Muncie . . . Looks Forward to Canada Muncie Alumnae Chapter began 1969 early in January with Mrs. Vernon Fox who arranged the program, "Serving Senior Citizens." The members received many valuable suggestions for usefulness to these lonely persons.


The Panhellenic Card Party in February was well attended. The proceeds from the party will go toward a scholarship for a deserving girl. Mrs. Ralph Cros was ho te for the tenth annual Senior Brunch in March. It AN HOR

is at this meeting that the chapter initiates all graduating seniors into the alumnae ~r?~P 路 This year it was a privilege to also tmtiate an alumnae from Delta Sigma days, Mrs. Fred Marquis . Ap_ril found the Alumnae Chapter treatmg the actives with a smorgasbord at the Sorority Suite, Wood Hall. The program was "Slides of Pine MountainYouth Reports." The group met again in May with Mrs. Darrell Jones to indulge in "Tau Talks. " This gathering, when we share with each other books we have recently read is one of the highlights of the year. ' The year ended as it began, full of spirit left over from National Convention. Plans, both personal and collective were discussed at the meeting for the e~rning of money, 1969-70, in order to send a large group to Toronto for National Convention next summer. Mrs. Robert Harshman

~Newark ... Receives Charter On February 5, the Newark Alumnae group became a chapter. Presiding at the ceremonies were Miss Margaret MacDonald, National Treasurer and Mrs. Bernard McBee, National Expansion Director. The installation of the Alpha Phi collegiate chapter at West Chester State College took place on March 29, at Penn Oaks Country Club in nearby Pennsylvania. Two of our members, Judy Harris and Florence Borgnis were privileged to attend the formal dinner and installation. They enjoyed meeting our National President, Elizabeth Wilson, District II VicePresident, Mrs. Robert Wales, and Rose Marie Schmidt, National Pledge Chairman. Our last meeting before fall was held at the home of Pris Dunkleberger. A report on the formal installation of Alpha Phi chapter was given. Plans of the National Council for expansion in our area were also discussed. ANCHOR

We are all especially proud of Carolyn Burlew and Florence Borgnis who received their Masters degress this June. Pris and George Dunkleberger became parents for the second time with the birth of another daughter on June 24. Sheila S. McBride

~ New Orleans ... Egg Hunt Entertains Help! Help! Fire! Water! There really has been a fire , but not the kind you're thinking of-it's the burning in the hearts of Alpha Sigma Tau's to help other people. And that is where the cold winter month of January found uspresenting a check to our collegiate sisters in Hammond for their housing fund, thus warming their future. Under the energetic auspices of our indomitable president, Cindy Krobert, the New Orleans Alumnae Chapter showed signs of growth, progress and t he usual good natured lack of prosperity. A first for the New Orleans area was an Easter Egg Hunt for our local alumnae's children-and what makes it an encouraging first is that our toddler set alone can fill a backyard to overflowing, and due to new arrivals there will be more invitations required for next year's Easter Egg Hun t . Camille Gennaro, our hostess for. the event, supplied such necessary items as live rabbits, swings, slides, balls, baskets and such a legerdemain talent for hiding eggs that they all but eluded the most inquisitive child, the most anxious parent and the puzzled hostess. The spring luncheon was held at a unique restaurant which features dining in the Creole manner in a setting of Victor ian elegance. Corinne Dunbar' is a place, as its brochure so aptly state

"from the moment you touch the brass doorbell and the butler admits you ... you discover that dining at Dunbar's is a glimpse of the gracious living of New Orleans Creole aristocrats of a hundred years ago." Soft music ... candlelights . . . and maid service--we Creole Belles enjoy soaking up that antique atmosphere with the nonchalant ease and enthusiasm that is usually associated with soaking up sunshine at the beach. Luxuriating in our spree was our special guest of honor, Miss

~Norfolk ... Creating for Charity At our January luncheon plans were made for activities for the rest of the year. February's meeting brought the good news of the highly successful results of the dinner theater sponsored by Norfolk Panhellenic. The play, Visit to a Small Planet, and the dinner were enjoyed by all of our members who attended. Our creative senses were stirred at our March meeting as we were privileged to have a well-known florist give a demonstration in floral arranging at the home of Judy Johnson. The four lovely arrangements were taken to local nursing homes. March also brought election of officers. Elected to follow very capable and dedicated officers were President, Chrystal Buckland; Vice President, Marjorie Creekmore; Recording Secretary, Sandra Drake; Corresponding Secretary, Sandra Byrum; Treasurer, Alma Hall; Chaplain. Judy Johnson; Historian, Marilyn West; and Editor, Nancy Creekmore, Our thanks to Marilyn West for such a successful year of leadership in our chapter. Sandra Drake's lovely home was the scene of our April meeting. Installation of officers and intiation of three new alumnae highlighted our evening. Thoughts were exchanged about the scholarship fund ponsored by the Panhellenic. One


Margaret Lowe, a past faculty adviser of Phi Chapter, who regaled us with tales of her many foreign travels in recent years. Our last meeting of the season featured the installation of officers. Slated to be among the names in the news for next year are: Cindy Kobert, Camille Gennaro, Sandy Haslauer, Annette LeBlanc, J osephine Nunez, Patricia Roth, Jeri Jauchler and Anne Marie Venturella. Annette C. LeBlanc Dianne W. Howell

suggestion was to set up individual study units for Greeks at Old Dominion . Everyone enjoyed our Panhellenic banquet held in May. A picnic was held on June 14. Our gracious hostess once again was Judy Johnson. Collegiates from the Tidewater area were invited. This year has been active and productive for us. We look forward to the vacation season and many reunions in the fall. Nancy Creekmore

Philadelphia. â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ New Uses for the Old The past year has been a happy one for the Philadelphia Alumnae Chapter. We have had most interesting meetings (as Emily Reedy Schopp has already reported in the Spring Anchor) , attendance has been good, we welcomed our new sisters of Alpha Phi Chapter at West Chester, and we developed a closer relationship with our Wilmington alumnae sisters. For our local social service we tried two new projects. We collected u ed hat and pocketbooks in good condition for the ladies at Riverview Home and at the arne time brought along good u ed childr n' books for the pupil of a pe ial hool


for children with problems (not problem children!). Most of our members were able to ~articipate in these. projects, and our offenngs were well received. We will plan for next year at the home of our new president, Maryland D' Ardenne Wanek, on June 16. The planning shouldn't be difficult as many good suggestions for programs were made at our Spring Luncheon in May. The only sad note at all is that one of the chapter members, Jane Messimer Howe, is moving to Florida. We'll miss her, but perhaps we will have a new chapter there as Jane will be living only a few miles from Lucille Steen. Lois S. O'Dell

~ St. louis ... Convention Fund Increases The St. Louis Alumnae congratulate the collegiates of Pi on starting another successful school year. Beverly Warner deserves special mention as the recipient of the Esther Lanfersieck Award of $25. Other activities of the past year include the donated Braille subscription of Readers Digest, a donation to the St. Louis Peregrine Society, and the purchase of Christmas cards from the Cerebral Palsey Society. All the alums enjoyed helping the collegiates with their rush party. A Bakeless Sale was held to send two members to the convention in Toronto. Last May's Pot Luck Supper at Dorothy Meyer's was a huge success. In June, the alums hosted a luncheon for the collegiates at Alice Dunlap's. Newly elected officers are: Pat Hoffelder, president; Arline Clark, vice president; Pat Ives, corresponding secretary; Mary Lou Scott, treasurer; Marie Nemnich, recording secretary; Shirley Bird, editor. Shirley Bird ANCHOR

~ Shepherdstown Books Provide Memorials In January we met with our President, Miss Ruth Seibert. Mr. Steven Payne, commercial representative of the C&P Telephone Company presented an interesting and very informative program on how to help protect our homes from the invasion of annoyin g telephone calls. At our February meeting we viewed slides of the Pine Mountain Settlement School and we decided to donate money for story and music records as one of our social service projects for the year. Miss Barbara Maxwell, an alumnae member on the staff of the Shepherd College Library, gave a most interesting and thought provoking book review on the best seller, The Rich and the Super Rich by Ferdinand Lundberg. Our March meeting is reserved as a time for visiting with our sisters on the Shepherd College Campus. Our sisters present the program and we furnish the refreshments. This is really a time for fellow ship and getting to know each other better.

May Initiation of Chi 's seniors into alumn ae chapter .


We had a fun evening in April when we met with Ann Shipley. The owner of a local wig shop presented a program on wigs. Since wigs are becoming quite the "thing" we thought it would be fun and it was-especially when we were encoura~ed to try on the wigs! We were delighted to be able to meet with Mrs . Justin Doyle, our District President, when she was a guest at Chi Chapter's annual spring banquet in April. We are always pleased to have her visit us. We alumnae, and the senior girls of Chi Chapter, were guests of the Chi patronesses in May for the annual pa-

troness party honoring the graduating seniors. Miss Ruth Seibert initiated 12 girls into our chapter and each girl was presented a yellow rosebud. Two books have been purchased by our chapter and placed in the MartinsburgBerkeley County Library, in memory of deceased members. These books are Richard Strauss-The Life of a Non-Hero by George Marek to be placed in memory of Margaret Smith Farnsworth and A Portrait of Emily Dickinson-The Poet and H er Prose by David Higgins. Dorothy LeFevre

~ Tri-City ... Fun at the Flea Market The Tri-City Alumnae Chapter's spring calendar began with a meeting at Jean Eadie's home where we elected officers for '69-'70. They are: Fran Siems, president; Judy Dean, recording secretary; Carla Young, corresponding secretary; Jean Eadie, treasurer; Jackie Willman, editor; and Nancy Hanson, chaplain. In February we had a pizza party for alumnae members and their husbands. The decorations included red-checkered tablecloths and candlelight. In March we met in Mt. Pleasant with Mrs. Cross to discuss the need for an alumnae advisor for Beta Chapter. We found Mrs. Cross charming and efficient. Our local social service project for this year was Saginaw Continuation School, a

school for pregnant girls. We donated money for one girl who had to pay tuition because she lived outside the city limits. We also donated paperback books and some clothing. Most of the girls at this school keep their babies and soon return to their regular schools. This year about twenty-five girls received high school diplomas. These girls would probably have dropped out of school if not for Continuation School. This year we tried something different for our rummage sale. We took our wares to the Flea Market in Saginaw. Every Thursday groups or individuals may rent a space to sell their goods. It was fun to see what other people had to sell. Fran Siems

~ Washington .. . Initiation Increases Membership The new year brought good fortune to the Washington, D .C. Alumnae Chapter with the iniation of Mary Baker, Alpha Lambda, Debby Kahanowitz, Alpha Iota, Fran Mcisaac, Psi, Joan McWhorter, Chi, 60

Susan Pre sentin, Alpha Lambda, and Melba Snow, Rho. Barbara Grubb served as hostess for this meeting in Alexandria. Virginia. Our February meeting wa held at the A


hot?e of .Fran Jeffrey in Falls Church. Ed1~h Ellwtt presented informative slides of Pme Mountain. . ~o that we might all become better mfo:med about current college life, Mary Lomse Doyle lead a group discussion entitled "What is going on at the college campus today." Many members added to t~e talk by supplementing their opinions w1th newspaper clippings. . At the February Panhellenic meeting m our area, our President Betty Sue Glaeser gave a speech about Alpha Sigma Tau. It has been the practice this year to hear short speeches from five sororities at each Panhellenic meeting. In March our meeting was held at the home of Helen Sours in Springfield Virginia. Edith Elliott was our aucti~neer and we were able to raise twenty-fiv~ dollars from the white elephant sale. . The officers for the 1969-1970 year were mstalled at our April meeting. The new officers are: President, Betty Sue GlaeserVice-President, Ann Dey; Recording Sec~ retary, Edith Elliott; Corresponding Secretary, Birdalee Wagamann; Treasurer, Meda Ray Sewell; Historian, Melba Snow; Chaplain, Joan McWhorter; Editor, Debby Kahanowitz; Panhellenic Representative, Rachel Yahwak; Panhellenic alternate, Hildred Wood. Our hostess was Hildred Wood and we enjoyed a program on the S-t-r-e-t-c-h and Sew method of sewing. In May we attended the Panhellenic meeting. The program was a stimulating panel discussion involving students and a faculty advisor from American University. Betty Sue Glaeser was our hostess for the June meeting at her home in Falls Church. We concluded this year's business and discussed service projects for the Fall. Dorothy Gates presented a most enlightening book review of Drew Pearson's The Senator. The Washington Alumnae Chapter would like to extend an invitation to any alumnae in the area to join our group. Any interested person should contact Betty Sue Glaeser at 560-3697.

~ YpsHanti-

Ann Arbor

Fun Produces Funds The Ann Arbor- Ypsilanti Alumnae Chapter has had a "fun" year as well as a productive one. Our programs included a fund raising cooking demonstration by the Michigan Consolidated Gas Company, our annual Founders' Day dinner, installation of officers and the initiation of Alpha seniors into our alumnae chapter, and our Betty Crocker auction at which we auction items we made using the coupons in lieu of money in order to obtain flatware for Alpha Chapter. In May we held our annual Mother's Day luncheon which proves to be a pleasant way of entertaining our mothers. To conclude the year we held a potluck dinner at which officers exchanged notebooks for the coming year after which we viewed a wig demonstration. Our activities were interspersed with our social service and collegiate projects. We collected nylon stockings with which to stuff toy animals for the Perry Nursery School in Ann Arbor and hemmed sheets for the same school. We made favors for collegiate parties as well as desserts. Next year we hope to do more community work. Joanne Miller
