Miss Amy Jean Greene .


Miss Amy Jean Greene . Alpha Gamma Chapter



honored by Henderson State College

Miss Amy Jean Greene, faculty adviser to Alpha Gamma Chapter, retiring after twenty-four years on the faculty at Henderson State, is the first person in the history of the college year-book to have the book dedicated to her twice. Miss Greene, a native of Arkadelphia, came to Henderson in 1945 and immediately began contributing her talents to the organization and guidance of service groups on campus. Active in civic affairs also, she was voted, in 1950, one of the 10 citizens who had made the greatest contribution to Arkadelphia in the first half of the 20th century. In addition to active membership in the many local and national professional organizations, she is a former secretary and vice president of the Arkansas Education Association and one of the few women to serve as President of the AEA. She has also served on nine NCTAE visitation teams to evaluate teacher education in other colleges and universities. With all of these professional obligations, Miss Greene, a charter member of Alpha Gamma Chapter, has served as faculty adviser since 1946, imparting to these young women her own high standards of achievement and dedication to community service. She has found time to entertain as well as counsel them and is

remembered with affection by every member of the chapter. They have established an "Outstanding Member Award" in her name and in 1966 she was awarded the Helen R. Garman Faculty Adviser Award. The dedication to Miss Greene in the 1972 STAR, written by the editor, Robert Porter, reads: "The words of a person really tell very little. They are merely the instruments to be used for a purpose. But when one sees in the eyes and face the love for a school, then one sees the truth. The quality learned from yesterday and the visions which will continue into tomorrow have been reflected in the eyes and face of one of Henderson's own. She completes 44 years of teaching this year, but the projects she began, the traditions she established, and the friends she made will remain ." Alpha Sigma Tau joins Henderson State College in their expression of appreciation to Miss Amy Jean for her contribution to the service of mankind.

Note: The Anchor is indebted to Mr. Robert Porter, Editor of the STAR, for much of the information in this tribute to Miss Greene.

NPC Adopts ''Quota-Total ," Revises Manual of Information The National Panhellenic Conference held an interim session at the University of Oklahoma Continuing Education Center, Oct. 11-15, 1972. Attendance was limited to National Panhellenic Conference delegates, alternates, and national presidents. One of the main issues before the delegates was the report on Quota-Limitation. The recommendations resulted in the adoption of a new term, "Quota-Total." Quota refers to the number each fraternity may pledge during formal rush. Total means the total number of pledges and initiated members comprising the chapter on that campus. It was felt that the word, "limitation" was negative and was often interpreted incorrectly; for example, when quota put a group over limitation, on some campuses the number of pledges allowed to a group was the number which would put the group at limitation. We will now have "Chapter Total." Quota is determined by dividing the number of rushees accepting invitations to the first invitational parties by the number of fraternities participating in rush. Once established, the quota should remain unchanged for that entire formal rush period. Each fraternity is entitled to pledge quota, even though it may bring a fraternity chapter above the established total chapter size. There is a flexibility rule in bid-matching. National Panhellenic Conference considers it preferable to match bids to fill only the pledge quota in formal rush. This procedure treats each chapter the same. Additional openings under total chapter size may be filled during continuous open bidding. If pledge quota is combined with additional openings under total chapter size in bid-matching, pledge quota must be matched first for all chapters, then the remaining names on the list rna tched for total chapter openings. The success of the quota-total plan depends on continuous open bidding. There was a slight change made in the


length of time a pledge is binding. The exact date of pledging has been deleted in the example used in this part of the Panhellenic Compact, and the new example will read: "If a girl pledged September one year . . ., her pledge expires September of the following year ... "This will allow a rushee to participate in formal rush even if there is a variance of four weeks in the date of her pledging and the calendar year expiration date. The revised NPC Manual of Information was approved and copies of this publication will be distributed in the fall. The National Association of Women Deans and Counselors requested that the National Panhellenic Conference have "information sessions" during one day of their meeting which will be in Cleveland, Ohio, April6-10. The interim session approved the presentation of these sessions, which will run from 11: 00 a.m. to 4:00p.m. The establishment of National Panhellenic Conference member chapters on the campuses on Junior Colleges was discussed, and it was decided not to enter Junior Colleges at this time. A resolution was adopted urging that Panhellenics meet alone and not in joint meetings with IFC. Policies and procedures of the two organizations are too different to permit effective meetings and workshops to be held together. This interim meeting was a departure from the custom of meeting biennially. It proved to be very effective and many delegates have expressed their feeling of satisfactory accomplishment. The regular session of the National Panhellenic Conference will be held in Memphis, Tenn., at the Rivermont Hotel, Oct. 21-24, 1973. AST will be represented by Mrs. Justin G. Doyle, NPC delegate, Mrs. Thomas J . King, Jr. and Miss Elizabeth Wilson, alternate delegate. Adapted from "The Aglia" of Phi Mu -winter 1973.

Suzanne Gerlt, Pi Chapter Kindergarten Teacher and Author

Suzanne Gerlt, President of St. Louis Alumnae Chapter, compiled a few of the most heartwarming and funny juvenile gems heard and experienced during her career in a delightful little book Happiness Is A Kindergarten Teacher, recently released by Carlton Press of New York. Miss Gerlt's wry reflections and anecdotes capture the hilarity, sadness, and oc a ional fru trations inherent in kinder-


garten. Picture a mouse running loose in the classroom, a group of hysterical children and one slightly flustered teacher with a custodian out to lunch . Occasionally, Miss Gerlt has had to handle an obstreperous mother ... who happens to be the president of the P.T.A. But in her last item she states that " . .. true happiness is watching children grow in body and mind." That is why Miss Gerlt braves the rigors of her profession, and that is why her book will charm anyone who loves small children. Miss Gerlt is a teacher with the St. Louis Public Schools. A graduate of Harris Teachers College, she received her Master's Degree from Webster College in St. Louis. She is very active in various educational and social organizations, including Association of Childhood Education (A Vice-President) , Harris Teachers College Alumni, Junior Women's Chamber of Commerce (on board of Directors) Kappa Delta Pi, Alpha Delta Kappa and of course AST. Anyone wishing to order a book rna send a check or mone order to arlton Press, 84 Fifth Ave. New York, N.Y. for $3.3 0 (includes po tage).

Happiness is a headache because a child refuses to stop crying on his first day at school.

Did rou Know Him

S'ummer Magic

A still and quiet moment

A handful of summer, a crystal

to probe and ponder, to wander

of sunshine, reflecting faces

down the path of memories

dew-washed and breeze-dried by

wide and long. Did you know

butterfly fannings . Long, lazy

him-really know the one behind

sunnings and sleepy, silky moonings

the friendly face , the ready smile?

bringing cloud-high dreams.

Eyes, all-seeing, yet quiet-like

Crashing crests and tree-spiked shade

and waiting, pondering what the

where quartets of birdlings greet the

day might bring. Just routine doings-

guests thru lacings of June blooms.

you know the pattern well. A little

Summer magic! Summer time! Summer wine!

fun, some laughs with friends. Per-

Heady as sizzling lightning flashing,

haps a song or even yet a kiss or two.

or silent as pollen drifting from

Did you know him? He was everyone and

golden petals thru greening shadows

he was anyone of us. Was he happy

creeping. Live the magic spell

do you know? Was living sadness,

of summer-running

or was sadness dying?

before the bubbles burst.

Alpha Sigma Tau Establzshes National Headquarters Fund Dear Sisters: The National H eadquarters Fund Committee was authorized by the National Convention in Virginia B each to raise funds for the purchase of national headquarters and eq uipment. When , as chairman of this new co mmittee , I was asked to write a flye r "announcing the purpose of the fund and giving some instructions about making contributions" I asked myself what GOOD reasons I could give my sorority sisters for giving to this fund. The following three thoughts appealed to me. A permanent address is GOOD. No matter how far or where a sister roams,


she will always know that she can keep in touch with the sorority. She'll never have to worry about whether she has the latest address or not. That 's wo rth something. A meaningful way to honor departed sisters is GOOD. Contributions made to the fund in memory of sisters, advisors, or patronesses will help to build a permanent memorial to them. A memorial plaque can be included in the headquarters plan. H elping Alpha Sigma Tau dollars go fu rther is GOOD. Money now spent for rentals will provide maintenance for more spacious quarters for the staff and mean greater convenience and efficiency. Our sorority will get greater value for dollars spent. Many copies of the fly er have gone out, checks are coming in, and the fund is growing slowly but steadily. Man y more contributions are needed if we are to reach our hoped-for goal of $7500 by the time we celebrate our 75th Anniversary in Detroit in 1974. Suggestions for fund raising projects for Alumnae Chapters will be included in future Central Office Bulletins. Please send contributions to me, not to Central Office! Your help in realizing this fund dream of your sisters today will mean much to us now and to our sisters of the future. Let's get this project off to a good start! Thanks a lot! Yours in sisterhood, Loi 0 ' Dell, Chairman National H eadquarter Fund P.S. This appeal ha been directed mainly to alumnae since we picture them a b ina more affluent. ontribution and m monals from collegiate and coli aiat chapt r are, of cour e, mo t u• I orne. i\ HOR

Beta's Acquire Chapter Apartment

Summer moved into a busy fall semester for Betas at Central Michigan University. September brought us our first place trophy for Sigma Chi Derby Day. Actually, it consisted of a week of competitive activities with all other sororities on campus. Our united efforts helped make this our second consecutive year for the honor of first place. We are hopeful next year the trophy will remain ours permanently. Although a small number of girls went through rush this year we were able to initiate four great girls : Jennifer Johnston, Marda Gilmore, Margie Brady and Kathy Pinnick. This semester is looking better for rush and pre-parties have been going well. E lections brought us an ambitious new set of officers. Our new President is Becky Kettlewell; Vice-President, Melinda Keene; Secretary, Patti Parker and Treasurer, Nan Cummings. Congratulations go to Andrea Devine who was voted our Top Tau. We Betas ended our first semester in our new eight unit apartment complex in Greek Village. The house really seems like home now and we all like the apartment living. We just put up our new sign for the house which proudly carries our crest and chapter. Parents' Weekend in November was a complete success. We changed our traditional separate Mom's and Dad's Weekend to one. Saturday we held a breakfast for everyone and the afternoon was spent at the football game in CMU's fantastic new stadium. Later, everyone had a good time at the pre-party and that was followed by dinner in our new recreation room. Sunday afternoon all left for home. Founders' Day was celebrated formally at the Ember's restaurant. All Taus attended along with some local alumnae. Achieving the award for most improved

grade point was Beckie Allman and Nan Cummings received the scholarship award. Our annual formal Christmas dance was a big success. A pre-party at the house was followed by a dance at the local country club. We had a live band and everyone who attended had a great time. A post-party at the house ended the exciting social night. Ending the semester was a Christmas retreat at Becky Kettlewell's home in Gaylord, Michigan. We spent the weekend skiing and eating some great meals. It was a good semester and this spring will even be better. Kathy Douds

Deltas Capture Many Honors The Delta Chapter at Indiana University of Pennsylvania had a busy fall semester filled with many honors and events. Once again, rush proved to be very successful for us. "The Traditional Taus' Tameless Twenties" was the theme of our pre-rush party which had about 75 girls in attendance. The theme of our preferential party was "Journey through Fan'tau'syland." Decorations depicting this land of fantasy were mushrooms, flying horses, and dancing broomsticks. The skit was entitled "Mission In'tau'ssible," a take-off from TV's Dragnet; and the main character was Sergeant

"Tau" day. The party proved to be a great success as we received 10 new pledges; Jayne Cook, Lucy Fanelli, Debbie Frank, Dianne Groves, Mary Hayes, Margie Henry, Kathy Katocs, Lodi Swink, Marilyn Stemler, and Cathy Parker. The Homecoming Day's events brought much recognition to the Chapter. We were thrilled when it was announced that our float, "Down by the Olde Mill Stream," won the first prize consisting of $300 and a trophy. We knew then that the many hours spent in constructing it with the brothers of Chi Alpha Sigma were well worthwhile. The spectators along the parade route were overwhelmed by the numerous moving parts of the 40-foot float. The sisters and brothers rode behind the float singing and throwing candy to children viewing the parade. A tea was held in the sorority room for the sisters, their families, and alumnae. At this time the mothers were inducted into the mother's auxiliary by a ribbonpledging ceremony.

Deltas and their prize-winning float .



A pledge exchange was held with the brothers of Delta Sigma Phi. After the fun and games, the brothers held an "oldies" mixer for both the sisters and pledges. We celebrated Halloween together at one of the sister's apartment. A good time was had by all. The fall pledge dance, presented by the pledges, was held at the college lodge. The theme was "Au'tau'mn of ' 72" and a huge fireplace added to the harvest setting. After the pledges presented their skit and pledge song, the outstanding pledge award was given to Dianne Groves. We recognized our sweetheart by singing the sweetheart song. We celebrated our Founders' Day on November 4 at a local restaurant. Following dinner, a program was held in which the history and growth of our chapter was presented, after which we had a candle-lighting ceremony. In the annual Kaydeen pageant, we were proud that Peggy Michalski was chosen one of the Kaydeens. In later competition she was selected as one of three finalists for R.O.T.C. Queen. Kim Brown brought more honor to Delta Chapter when she was initiated into Kappa Omicron Phi, Honorary Home Economics Fraternity. Also, Kathy

Zeta's ((Overflow" with Action The Zeta Chapter was a "tornado" of action at Lock Haven State College after summer vacation. Although the city of Lock Haven was hit by the flood in June, the college remained dry and standing when the Taus returned. During rush, that was expertly planned by Sarah Wallick, we added nine pledges to the population of Tauland; Jayne Fetterman, Bev Garman, Be ky Klunk, Pam


Katocs and Kim Brown participated in the Outstanding Girl Contest on campus sponsored by Glamour Magazine. Both girls were finalists and Kathy Katocs was one of the three winners. She will now go into national competition for Miss Glamour. The annual Christmas party was held in the room. At this time gifts were exchanged with the help of Santa Claus, played by one of the sisters. Our Chapter and the brothers of Sigma Tau Gamma decorated their fraternity house for the traditional house judging and viewing of the general public. Although we did not place, we had a good time working with our brother fraternity. Throughout the semester we had several mixers with various fraternities, such as Sigma Nu, Sigma Chi Delta, Kappa Sigma, and Chi Alpha Sigma. Also, several sisters acted as hostesses at the smokers of various fraternities on campus. Deltas were also active in intramural volleyball. Although we did not win the championship, much enthusiasm was exhibited by the participants. We are looking forward to participating in intramural basketball next semester. Delta Chapter ended the semester with the initiation of 10 new sisters. Sue Richey Murdock, Kathy Murray, Joanne Roch, Dawn Spence, Debi Sweeney, and Cindy Van Sciver. The theme for rush was "The Wizard of Tau" with each night of rush a continuing adventure series of Dorothy (Sue Shirey) , Straw Girl (Dean Grove), Tin Girl (Karen Noerr) , Cowardly Lioness (Diane Muthler) , The Green Fairy (Jane Aiken) , and Toe-Tau too! The final rush party, held at the Kappa Delta Rho Fraternity House, was the entering of the rushees into the Emerald City dressed as one of the characters, with the sisters welcoming them as Munchkins. The pledges had a bu y e en ' eek of various project , including a highl profitable "Slave Sale" with the pledg of Tau Kappa Ep ilon Fraternit . Th money from the proje t h lp d th m pre ent a fanta ti part for th ir futur 7

sisters. The theme was "Disney World" with each sister asked to dress as a certain Disney character. The pledges then dedicated a record to each sister ranging from "Big Girls Don't Cry" to "DannyBoy" as entertainment. They also gave each sister a glass mouse as favors and a Trophy case for the sorority. On December 10 we initiated our nine pledges. Not only did they experience hard work and unity, they shared with the sisters their ideals of sorority life and the bonds of sisterhood were strengthened because of them. Homecoming 1972 was another big event for the Taus. We had two Sweethearts this year in the parade. June Witmer Baker was Kappa Delta Rho's Sweetheart and Kathy Murray was Tau Kappa Epsilon's Sweetheart. We are very proud of them both. Also the Tau's homecoming float placed third in the float awards. Halloween was also a big day as the sisters and pledges gave a party for the orphans of the Lock Haven Orphanage. Dressed up for Halloween, the sisters and orphans enjoyed the numerous "spooks" and games. The Taus ANCHOR

also participated in the UNICEF drive, collecting money door to door. December 2 was the date of our annual Christmas dance held at the Elks Club in Lock Haven. The evening was the expected success with close to 100% of the sisters attending. On December 13, a number of the sisters joined the brothers of Tau Kappa Epsilon to go Christmas Caroling at the Allenwood Federal Prison. Susan Stover planned the event and not only was it successful , everyone attending really experienced the true spirit of Christmas. The next night was our Christmas party at the home of our advisor, Mrs. Barth. Presents were exchanged and diets were broken as Mrs. Barth had prepared a fantastic selection of refreshments. With Spring Semester, a new form of rush was put into effect by Lock Raven's Pan-Hellenic Council and rush plans have already begun with the Taus. With a successful semester behind us, everyone is ready to work towards an even more exciting spring in the Emerald City. Susan Shirey Kathy Murray, Tau Kappa Epsilon Sweetheart.


Wedding Bells Ring at Theta Chapter Theta chapter at Wayne State University started the new school year off with the Spring pledge class giving aHawaiian Luau for the actives. Everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. Four Thetas went to the Convention at Virginia Beach and came back really enthused and energetic for Fall rush. They held a meeting when they got back in order to inform the rest of the girls what they had seen and done at the Convention. Our first rush party was "Picture yourself an AST," taken from Convention with a few ideas of our own mixed in. The party went over rather well and the rush list looked promising for our next party, which was formal. We incorporated the new candlelighting ceremony into it and all the ac-

Iotas Start Rolling The Iota Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau once again started rolling at Kansas State Teachers College after what seemed to be a very short summer. During formal rush we proudly pledged eighteen new sisters: Bonnie Barbee, Tricia Alderman, Sherry Balbeirz, Jeannie Bichelmeier, Janet Blake, Darby Boulanger, Judy Goodwin, Jan Hanson, Judy Harris, Sari Kuhn, Kathy Nerka,


tives chipped in with their various talents and we were able to have a buffet dinner. Our rushees at first were about six girls, but due to unforseen circumstances only two were able to pledge Fall quarter, Judy Fox and Donna Kanigowski. They were initiated January 28, 1973. Christmas time at Theta chapter consisted of selling Christmas cards for the mentally handicapped, exchanging cards and gifts among ourselves, and attending a Christmas party given for us by our Big Brothers. For Winter quarter we have had two rush parties which seemed to go well and we are looking forward to some new pledges for Winter. A lot has been happening in the way of marriages and births at Theta chapter. Bev Gryczko had a baby boy at the end of the summer. Rise Berman, our former Vice-president got married in September '72. Cathy Schiller is now vice-president. Arlene Rudus, who graduated last June, is getting married in May. Pat Zitella and Judy Bang are both getting married in June. So far this school year a lot has been happening at Theta chapter at Wayne State University and hopefully more good things will come. Barbara Kotula

The fathers began arriving Saturday afternoon wondering what excitement had been planned for them. We started with an introduction of each father and daughter team followed by skits and entertainment. After dinner pictures were taken of the girls and their dads. Later that night everyone went to the football game where we saw the Hornets take their first win of the season. The father left Sunda after what proved to be a very exhau ting week-end. Our next event was a night of roller skating with one of our brother frat rnitie . The fir t part of the e ening ' a

spent in getting acquainted and/or reacquainted with not only the Phi Delts but also with the skates. After accomplishing these two feats, we immediately converted the rink into a wild roller derby rink with everyone knocking everyone and everything down. After realizing that we weren't as young as we used to be, we slowed down to such things as the limbo stick and "couples" dances. The evening ended with the picking up of broken bones and bruised bodies and taking them home to heal. November was a very busy month for us in Emporia. On November 4, we celebrated Founder's Day with a special dinner and entertainment from the high school choral group. Many old friendships were renewed and many new ones were formed thus making it a very memorable evening for everyone. Our next big event was homecoming weekend at K.S.T.C. The festivities started Saturday morning ANCHOR

with an all college parade. The AT s had two floats as their entries: the first one being a football and the second, depicting Bonnie and Clyde's car. Some of the girls dressed up as gangsters to enhance the mood. After the parade, we all went back to the house to make last minute changes on the decorations and to see that all the final arrangements had been rna •. That afternoon we all attended the game and then returned to the house for a homecoming supper. Instead of the usual homecoming tea, we decided, this year to make this affair a little more casual so we had a chile supper. Many of the alums returned making 1972 homecoming a success. The last big event of November was a visit from Mrs. King, national president. Even though her stay was short she will long be remembered for sh~ taught us quite a bit about what a sisterhood should be. In December, new officers were chosen. We would like to congratulate Sherri McConnell, our new president; Mickey Chiles, vice-president; Jan Robinson, secretary; and Barbara Cowling, treasurer. We would like to thank last year's officers for a job well done especially Carolyn Liggett who made a fantastic president. On December 7, we held our annual Christmas party. The atmosphere was set with freshly fallen snow on the ground and the sound of carollers' voices in the air. A friendship circle started the evening off, with each girl reciting a favorite proverb. The mood immediately changed to a more relaxing one as the pledges got up individually to sing their songs. Then paper and gifts started flying all over as we started opening our gifts. The night ended with everyone crying with relief and gratitude for the semester being over and the pleasant happiness of being a member of this big family. On January 21 , our pledges went active thus making our sisterhood complete. They achieved much during their pledgeship, not only for themselves but for the good of Alpha Sigma Tau. We would like to welcome all of them into our family . Kathy Nerka 35

Omicrons Look Ahead To A Prosperous Spring The fall semester at Concord College ?rought back sisters with many new Ideas for a fun filled and active autumn. ~hy? Because of that fabulous Alpha S1gma Tau Convention they attended at Virginia Beach of course! Connie Jarrell, president of Omicron Chapter, served as our collegiate delegate and Debbie Shumate was our Queen candidate. Other collegiate members that attended the Convention were Cathy Viers, Dianna Parks, Frances Latousakis, Kathy Mock, and Cari Sherris, a recent alumnae. We were quite proud when our song "We're Glad to Be Among the Girls"; which is to the tune of the "Coke Song" and written by Marsha Myers, won second

place nationally. Each girl came back filled with new enthusiasm and so our fall semester began. One of our first activities was our fall rush party. This rush period was quite different than previous semesters. Our college panhellenic decided on a less structured rush which proved to go over quite well. Our Formal Party theme was " Paint A Picture of AST", modeled after our Convention rush party. The rushees painted their individual idea of sorority . The party proved to be quite a success and we were proud to receive seven new pledges: Sherry Blanton, Becky Burger, Pat Caste, Mandy Covey, Cindy Jones, Pam Reed and Mel Williams. Pam Reed "erved as pledge class president and Mel Williams received the Best Pledge Award. Even with a busy schedule Omicrons still have time for socializing. The top officers attended a luncheon at the home of Mrs. Meade McNeil, alumnae and former patroness. Miss Marcella Whitlock, our Alumnae Advisor, gave a brief talk after our delicious luncheon. Next on the Tau's itinerary were our annual Homecoming festivities. We were quite pleased when our candidate, Debbie Shumate, placed first runner-up in Concord's Homecoming Court. This was an even greater honor for us because we sponsored Debbie without the aid of any other organization on campus. Before the game we hosted our annual Homecoming Alumnae Tea where we got together with many of our alumnae. We also had another honor when it was announced that Miss Marcella Whitlock was selected Concord Alumni President. Late October brought another annual event. This was our Patroness Tea This is. held every semester so that th~ girls w1ll have the opportunity to meet and become acquainted with our patrones e . Omicrons are also very active in intramural .sports. This semester we participated m soccer, volleyball, archery pincr p~mg , badminton, basketball and e peCially the Women's Intramural Meet in which we placed econd. T~is year' Founder ' Da , a very pec1al for our chapter. It b aan with a Banquet at which ' e ' r hon r d by a i\


visit from our National Housing Director, Mrs. Fern Phipps. The Banquet was followed by a Tea at the home of Mrs. Donzie Lilly, a former patroness. We were quite pleased when four of our girls made the Dean's List this semester. These girls were Mandy Covey with a 4.0, Chris Hanson, Malinda Maynard, and Frances Latousakis. But even though we are quite busy with studies we always find time for some socializing. We hosted a Sadie Hawkins Dance on November 18 with Sigma Tau Gamma, our national brother fraternity. For added fun throughout the semester we joined with Theta Xi, Phi Sigma Epsilon, and Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternities for socials and parties. Our pledges treated the actives with their Big Sis-Little Sis party called "Tijunan Taus" with a Mexican theme. The gift to sorority from the pledge class was a three foot paddle to hang at our favorite restaurant. Ours will be the first Greek organization with a decoration there. Several of our girls said "Yes" to the big question this semester. Over the summer and this semester we had seven Yell ow Rose Ceremonies. Our president,

Connie Jarrell, is engaged to our sorority sweetheart, Todd Munday. The other Yellow Roses were for Mary Antonik, Lorrayne Hartman, Billie Pack, Dianna Parks, Cynthia Farmer and Margie Day, who are both recent alumnae. So there are many Alpha Tau weddings in the planning. Besides all of our sorority activities our members all have individual activities and interests. Becky Collier had her Senior Art Show from December 5th to January 8th and it was a great success. Our Taus are quite active in campus activities also. These girls are: Mary Antonik-College Hearing Board, Tina Vagliente--Student Senate, Frances Latousakis-College Center Board President, Faculty-Student Evaluation Committee, Mel Williams-Varsity Tennis Team and Kathy Mock-Gymnastics Team. With the semester coming to a close our patronesses hosted our annual Christmas Party at the home of Mrs. Edward Masters and a surprise visit from Santa Claus. After exams the Taus were looking forward to our much needed Christmas vacation and a new semester with new friends and experiences. Karen Wheeler

Pi's Soccer Team in National Competition Since Pi Chapter is located at Harris Teachers College in St. Louis, a commuter college, it allowed a break for the Alphas to use the summer months for preparation of upcoming rush. With two parties to be planned, we had all our time planned for us. For our first party we invited all the rushees to a fondue dinner with bowling afterward . The bowling turned out to be quite hilarious, since some of the girls bowled like they had never even seen a ANCHOR

bowling ball or pins before. Oh well, we all had fun and that's t he most important part. Our second party was based on a western theme, entitled "Alpha Country". We had chorus girls, cowboys, and even a wooden Indian. A skit, written by Kathy Major, was the highlight of the evening, it was titled "How t he Indian Sold His Cigars" . As usual the alums helped out with refreshments, for which we were very grateful. 3

After a week of silence we received six enthusiastic girls, which was equal if not more than the other sororities on campus. Even though we didn't receive more pledges, we received what we thought were the best, but then we were a little biased. Well, rush was finally over and we had other things to get done. We began campaigning, not for presidential candidates though. You see, our candidate was Donna Riechers who represented Alpha Sigma Tau in the Campus Queen Court. At the same time Harris was jumping with the excitement of our soccer team, Harris Hornets, going into national competition. After realizing the cost to send our team to North Carolina, some of the Alphas joined right in, giving all the help they could. Debbie Berron, Nancy Brush, Debbie Hommelson, Donna Riechers, Carol Shoptaugh, and Rosie Tamminga helped plan bake sales or anything which might help. After the team had returned we gave them a victory dinner to celebrate that they had placed fifth in the nation . After dinner we played, of all things, volleyball. I guess they don't mind a change in sports once in awhile. Before leaving for Christmas some of our girls participated in a Christmas program presented for the student body. One of our girls, Ruth Ann Siekmann was a soloist and assistant conductor. Well, Christmas was approaching and we began planning activities for the upcoming vacation. We had our annual Christmas party at which time we exchanged presents. Also during vacation we visited CEC (Center for Exceptional Children) to sing and have refreshments. But most of all we went to give a little enjoyment to some children who are less fortunate. Believe it or not, we even had our own Santa Claus. One of our girls, Ruth Ann Siekmann, received honors by being accepted into Who's Who Among American Colleges and Universities. She was one of twenty to receive the award from the college. We congratulate her on her accomplishment. Also to be congratulated are Mary Anne Boyer Hoppe who got married this summer and Barb Weber Ogle who also


got married and is expecting a "baby Alpha" this corning summer. Along with our newly married girls we have five girls who are now planning their weddings. They are Betty Brennan, Sue Harris, Kathy Major, Rosie Tamminga, and Lori Waddell. To them we say "Good Luck" girls. With the gain of our six pledges and the loss of a few, including our seniors who are student teaching, we have hopes of having a successful semester. Ruth Ann Siekmann

Upsilon Receives 23 Pledges The Upsilon Taus at State College in Conway rushed into fall full of new ideas and sisterhood. The new ideas were put to work when rush began the third week in September. We welcomed the rushees with an Ice Water Tea party first. The theme of our Brag party was the movieland-displaying our honorary Taus as celebraties. This proved to be very successful. The next night, we rushed into the theme party, "Alpha Sigma Tau Gold Rush". It was hard to tell who enjoyed this party the most, the rushees or the Taus. Our rush week came to an end with our formal party. To our delight, we welcomed 23 new pledges to our sisterhood. During the month of September, the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity invited our sorority to a formal tea given in their fra-

They also helped the actives build the Chis' gift booth at Shepherd's homecoming Oktoberfest. The animals, along with candles, pennants, and other knick-nacks were sold at our 'German" gift booth. The pledges worked together to make outfits to wear on color day. They made green and gold smock tops. The tops had the letters AST embroidered aero the pockets.


The pledges honored the actives with an authentic Hawaiian luau in early November. A hula contest was held. We were served fantastic refreshments of fresh fruit, cake, and punch. The actives and the pledges, together w!.th the alumnae, attended the National Founders' Day Banquet. The program of the meeting consisted of slides which were taken while Dr. Cree had been advisor. As initiation time drew near, the pledges were given the traditional slumber party. The night consisted of scavenger hunts, games, singing, food, and some

sleeping. It was considered by all to be a very good time. The pledges were initiated in December. It was felt that the pledge period had been a little too short, but all were pleased that the pledging season had been successful. We ended the year with the annual Christmas Party. The party was held at the home of Mrs. Carper, our new advisor. The Christmas cheer was passed to all, and for a short time, we were able to forget about final exams. Karen Oliff

Alpha Gammas Welco1ne 13 New Pledges The Alpha Gammas of Henderson State College in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, began the fall semester with plans for an exciting rush program. Open bids were extended to Joann Allen and Linda Bradshaw the first week of school. September 19, pledges Rhonda Dickey, Brenda Jones, and Brynda Southworth were initiated. Rush began with our informal party which had the theme of "Babes in Tauland". The following week we had a spaghetti supper at the Arkadelphia Country Club with an All-American theme. Dessert was a red, white, and blue cake in the shape of a flag. A program of skits and songs followed. On October 13, we held our formal party in the HSC ballroom. The theme was "When You Wish Upon A Tau" . On October 14 we received 13 new pledges; Sharon Bale, Martha Cothren Kathy Dillard, Peggy Drummond, Do~na Easley, Maureen Ellis, Betsy Griffin, Cindy Henderson, Carol Carpenter, Debby McCowan, Brenda Sharp, Linda Sharp, and Vickie Smith.

Change zj in the Air for Alpha Thetas The fall semester was a busy one for the Alpha Thetas. It was also a semester of changes. One big change was "uniforms." An AST girl can now be spotted on campus by the bright green plaid jumper she w路ears once a week. The new outfits attract lots of attention and comments. Rush season was busy with a frisbee fling, a mixer, a finger painting contest and several informal parties being some of the highlights. We also had a Christmas dinner party at the Port 0' Three in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., for the members and their dates. All of these activities brought us one of our smartest pledges ever, Helen Miskinis. She has already contributed a lot to the group in the short time she has been a member. Plans for the spring semester include an encounter session party, more mixers and a dinner dance hosted by us for all the Michigan area chapters. Elections will also bring more changes for the Alpha Thetas during the spring.

There will be some big changes for two of the members as President Paula Cucinotta and Secretary Carol Kelley will be married within two weeks of each other this spring. In another change, our Alumnae Advisor, Sue Roman, is expecting a baby and hoping for a future AST member. The Alpha Thetas have also played an active part in life on the University of Detroit campus. Greek Weekend, the campus blood drive, University Week and a litter pickup campaign were some of the activities that got our support. We still found time to study though, and several Alpha Thetas were again on the Dean's List. This is not a change as a recent study at U of D shows that Greeks consistently get higher grades. Other changes hoped for in the spring semester are more members (we now have two delightful ribbon pledges) and more contact with our alumnae. So you can see that change is in the air for Alpha Theta . Carol Kelley

Alpha Kappa Chapter Pledges Nine For their 1972 fall rush, the Alpha Kappas, of Marietta College, Marietta, Ohio, pledged nine new members: Debbie Allen, Judy Burrell, Joann Johnson, Katherine Keith, Linda Mellor, Barb Morrison, Pam Reeves, Debbie Smith and Mary Wilson. "Winnie the Pooh" was the theme of this year's Homecoming serenade with Kathy Klingner, the queen candidate,

playing Christina Robin. After the Homecoming game, the house held its annual alumnae tea.

Alpha Lambda's Have New Rush The Alpha Lambdas were very pleased and excited to welcome back Convention Queen Margaret Nuckols. We also had the pleasure of welcoming four Concord Alums who are doing graduate work here at Radford. We began the year with the traditional rededication ceremony, and from that point on it was RUSH, RUSH, RUSH! Rush this year brought many new and different changes. The main rush this year will be in the winter, with smaller rushes in the fall and spring. Also, second quarter freshmen are now eligible to receive bids. Fall Rush consisted of our traditional open house "Paint a Picture of AST," and the second party "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About AST, But Were Afraid To Ask." A slide show presenting the various aspects of sorority was very impressive to all. We were pleased to invite the following girls to join the sisterhood: Bonnie Harris, Mary Ingles, Michele LeVine, Elaine Mears, Pat Rector, Donna Richardson, Gail Shockley, Kathy Sowards, Lesele Wade, and Annette Williams.

In addition, Susan Boettcher has been named as one of the Outstanding College Athletes of America. Turn Around Week was held January 3-10. This week gave each pledge a chance to get to know a Turn-Around-Big-Sis better. The week was concluded with the now traditional ceremony. Something new and different is an "AST Week ." This was tried last spring, and we hope to make it a permanent tradition. During this week the sisters emphasize the different parts of AST, such as jerseys, active hats, and dresses. On the day of initiation each sister is given the

opportunity to renew the vows that she made at her own initiation. The last day of the week the sisters greet one another with a handshake, making a special attempt to include the new sisters. The Radford Alums have also had a very exciting fall. Jennie Teass was named President of the Radford College Alumnae Association, and Miss Pat, our advisor, was named Outstanding Alumnae. We again visited the Roanoke Alums at the home of Mrs. Carol Carroll. This was a good chance for many of us to see the alumnae side of sorority . Candlelights this quarter were held for Ginny Amend, Debbie Pierce, Cathy Jones, Leta Lester, and Peggy Swinburne. The sisters are very excited about our new sorority room in Madison Dorm. We are looking forward to a busy spring redecorating the room. We are now in the middle of Rush and we are anxiously looking forward to new Kathy Reed pledges and sisters.

Alpha Mu Forecast: Work and Fun Alpha Mu has had very exciting and busy fall and spring semesters. Where else but at University of Arkansas at Monticello could a rushee meet the real Wizard of Taus? At our fall informal rush party, President Patricia Tyson portrayed the Wizard. Louann Ray narrated the story of Dorothy's search for sisterhood. Dorothy (Sue Wagnon) met many friends on her journey. Her faithful dog, Toto (Beverly Morgan and J aye Robinson), was always close by. The Munchkins were very grateful to Dorothy because during the tornado the house landed on the Wicked Witch (Wanda Divine). The Munchkins were Sue Sturdivant, Beverly McDonald, Joyce Huber, Becky McCommack and Betsy Ogles. Dorothy's new friends were the Scarecrow (Claudia Stinon), The Tin Man (Kathy Traux), and the Lion (Sharon Starks). They all


wished for love, honesty and sincerity. The Good Witch (Sancy Ogles) told them how to get their wishes. These wishes were granted by the Wizard of Taus after they brought the Wicked Witch's shoes to her. We are especially grateful to the decoration committee chairman, Debbie Cogbill, for the realistic settings. Two Taus were among the newly elected 1972-73 cheerleaders: Jaye Robinson (Captain) and Sue Wagnon. Sue was also chosen the Sigma Tau Gamma White Rose Sweetheart for 1972. Iris Ross, a recent Alpha Tau pledge, is the newly elected president of the A sociation of Women Students. Other Tau members of AWS are Mary Toma son, Debbie Cogbill and Louann Ra .

picked up trash and unsightly debris along the new highway. To show our love and appreciation , the members surprised our future members with a Mexican dinner at the Casa Bonita in Little Rock. This was quite a treat for all of us. Our Founders' Day tea, November 4, was quite successful. It gave the mothers a chance to get a true insight into what the sorority means to all of us. An honor at all colleges is to be chosen Who's Who. We are happy and proud to announce that two sisters, J o Winston and Susan Riley, have been chosen. During the Christmas season, the Taus sold Christmas-grams. Those purchasing the Christmas-grams could write their own personal greeting inside and they were delivered free anywhere on campus by members of the sorority. Our sponsor, Mrs. Irene Puckett, gave Alpha Mu a Christmas party in her lovely Beverly Morgan 1972 Homecoming Queen U.A .M.

We are very proud of our sister, Beverly Morgan, who is UAM's 1972 Homecoming Queen. She was honored at the homecoming assembly and football game. Of course, the highlight of the fall semester was the eight new sisters we received: Vickie Todd, Cindy McCone, Iris Ross, Joy Scucchi, Mary Lynn Bilgischer, Cinda Yelvington, Pat Monk and Wanda Strother. We are happy to say that they are all now new members. Last fall, the Taus gave the emotionally disturbed children at the Baptist Home in Monticello a Halloween party. This was one of the pledges' projects and the members assisted. One of the fall projects was a raffle for a ten-speed bike. We gave $150.00 of the money from this project to the Seasame School for Retarded Children in Monticello. President Patricia Tyson presented the check to the teacher at the school. To help beautify Monticello, the Taus participated in an Ecology Drive. We ANCHOR

home. After enjoying a delicious dinner, Christmas gifts were exchanged. At the Alpha Sigma Tau and Sigma Tau Gamma Christmas formal, Joy St. John was chosen the Sig Tau Fall Sweetheart. We enjoyed dancing to the Magic Sounds, featuring Glenn and Phyllis Johnston. Phyllis is a member of the sorority and Glenn is a member of the Sigma Taus. The formal was held at the Monticello Country Club. At our first meeting of 1973, Best Member and Best Pledge were announced, with honors going to Joy St. John as Best Member and Mary Lynn Bilgischer as Best Pledge. Our newly elected treasurer is Mary Tomasson . Just recently, we enjoyed a skating party with our Sig Tau brothers. Although most of us were a little rusty on skates we all had a great time.

Alpha Xi Chapter Receives Honors After a summer vacation full of fun and sun, the Taus came back to Mansfield State College, Mansfield, Pa., refreshed and ready for another exciting semester. We were all happy to learn that we had received first place in the scholarship awards at the National Convention. We were also very proud of Debbie Wendt who placed as one of the princesses at the National Convention this summer. The plans for our informal rush party: "Taus and Stripes Forever" were under way. Thanks to the hard work of all the sisters and our rush chairman Sharon Bragin, the party turned out to be a huge success. We received 13 new pledges this semester: Laura A' Brunzo, Sylvia Atchison, Bambi Betson, Linda Hornick, Luann James, Becky Leib, Betsey Marcinizyn, Sally Anne Mitchell, Carol Naspinsky, Linda Phillips, Sue Scott, Sue Tanicello, and Cindy Watt. Homecoming weekend was next on the agenda. We had two sisters on the queen's court: Pat Magrosky representing Lamda Chi Alpha and Carol Lohmann representing Sigma Tau Gamma. We were all very happy and excited when the judges announced that Carol Lohmann had won the competition and would be crowned the 1972 Mansfield State College Homecoming Queen. About that same time, Alpha Xi received another honor. Every semester there is a competition on campus between all the sororities, to see which sorority can attain the highest cumulative average. Alpha Xi was very proud to receive the campus scholarship cup this semester. Founders' Day rolled around and we decided to celebrate with a homemade lasagna dinner. to be held in our lounge. It was delicious! ANCHOR

December started out with an initiation banquet held at the Flaming Pi t in Elmira. Before we left for our dinner, big and little sisters exchanged gifts and t he pledge class presented their gifts to the sorority: a beautiful antique treasure chest for storage purposes and owl pencil cans for each individual sister. Before Christmas we stuffed stockings full of goodies which were sent to nee~y children in the community. For our btg money-making project we decided to have a 50-50 raffle. It was a profitable raffle for us and for the winner whose name was drawn at the annual Christmas Panorama. With Pat Magrosky as our Little Angel, the Taus put on a perfor_manc~ of the Littlest Angel and took thud pnze. After our Christmas party that night with the exchanging of gifts, we celebrated with Phi Sigma Epsilon at a joint house party. Denise Gibbs.

Tau-Rrific Semester at CSC After a summer of fun and sun, the sisters of the Alpha Omicron chapter at Clarion State College, Clarion, Pa., began planning for the fall semester. First on the agenda was rush. Under the direction of Sandy Hood, much effort was put forth for our rush parties. For our informal party, "Sleepy Time Tau" sisters and rushees dressed in pajamas, and brought along stuffed animals. Cathy Gass wrote and read to us a bedtime story, and we had hot chocolate and donuts for snacks. Our formal party "Tau Territory" brought with it a touch of the Old West. Sisters and rushees dressed as cowboys and Indians; while dressed as bar maids, the AST sextet sang songs related to the Old West. As rush came to a close, we were very proud to welcome Jane Hallock, Mary J o Liotta, Maribeth Mitchell, Becky Glover, Barb Burke, Pam Zwald, Elyse Elliott, Pattye Hawkins, Sandy Hauber, and Audrey Sadar into our sister-

hood. Homecoming was fast approaching; but after the many weeks of hard work we were well rewarded as we took a first place for our float in the homecoming parade. We chose as our theme, "The Gilded Age" which described the different events that occurred in the 1890's. This year's float chairman was Vicki Catizone and assistant chairman was Linda Dolby. The sisters were very proud to have Cathy Gass represent us in the homecoming court. Complete with ghosts and goblins, the pledges arranged a very successful Halloween party for the sisters. On November 6th, the sisters celebrated Founders' Day with a banquet at Chandler Dining Hall. Our guest speaker, Mrs. Betty Hufford spoke on the topic of " Personality" . Entertainment was provided by the sextet. During the Christmas season , the sisters made candy wreaths for the other sororities on campus, and went caroling at the old folks home. This semester the senior sisters gave the sorority a Christmas party. It was a beautiful way to bring the fall semester to an end. Many thanks to our advisor, Mr. P-Jobb, who helped to make our fall semester a huge success. Vicki La Vaile

Alpha Pis Welcome Szxteen Pledges The Alpha Pi Chapter at Slippery Rock State College started the fall semester with informal rush. Many girls attended the party and we successfully " enlisted" sixteen new pledges. They are Ellen Bachman, Tanya Batson, Elaine Brantlinger, Theresa Cornelius, Rainy Han on, Linda Hy ong, Jennifer Laba h Regina Mancuso, Patti Mathews, Beth Peffer, Jan

Lambda Chi Alpha sponsored their annual Greek Go-Go contest and Sue Davis, our representative, was first runnerup. A surprise party was held for Mrs. Fox, our advisor, who is now retiring. In honor of the occasion, a dinner was held and later she was presented with a pooker scrapbook and a wooden replica of the pin. Our new advisor is one of our gradu-

Alpha Rho Chapter welcomed the new year after a short and happy summer. Swimming, picnics, and other get-togethers were planned as a way of keeping in touch with all the sisters. It was great to see the enthusiasm displayed by our girls. Fall quarter at Youngstown State University began with an early rush. Three parties were on the program, the first one being an introduction into sorority life, and the others being a way of getting to know the rushees. The sisters worked together, telling about some of the activities found in sorority life. The second party had as its theme, "Paint a Picture of AST". Rushees were given paint and poster board and told to draw what they thought sorority life is all about. It was surprising to see and hear some of the ideas expressed by the girls. The final party involved a combination of activities. The theme, "Circus" was quite appropriate for the occasion. One room was dedicated to the Alpha Rho scrapbook, with ANCHOR

ated sisters and a former Top Tau, Joanne Genova. Karen Kennedy was recognized by the band as an outstanding member of the marching Rockets after four years of hard work. Pam Lerch became a member of Who's Who in colleges . December 15 was our winter formal and the theme was to honor the pledges. It was held in Pittsburgh and was a great success. Our sisters are active in all intramurals and once a month we visit the old folk's home to sing songs and just talk among the patients. Besides being a lot of fun, it gives the sisters a feeling of contributing to the college community. Kathie Zedaker a few sisters showing pictures and talking about what sorority life is like. A second room had as its theme "Run For Your Life" . It was remarkable how the personality of each girl could be shown by the very answers that she gave. The third room was used as a Circus workroom and it was here that the rushees made stuffed animals to be sent to a children's hospital. The girls were quite impressed by our program of activities, and we were likewise impressed by them. Rush brought us three new sisters: Debbie Arena, Marty Morgan, and Diane Pavlak. Karla Simpson came into the group a few weeks later. This pledge class has proven to be hard working and a real credit to Alpha Rho. We are very proud of Everyone has a good time at an Alpha Rho party .


these girls and have complete confidence in their ability to make AST a very special group. Fall quarter ended with a Homecorning celebration. Rosemarie Delia was chosen to be our candidate. She is to be commended for the poise and confidence she displayed throughout the celebration. The Christmas season was a happy time for all the sisters. This year, our group went Christmas caroling at a few Nursing Homes located near the sorority house. Afterwards, the girls went back to the house for a party. Many of the sisters felt that it was important to bring the Christmas cheer to unfortunate people who seldom have visitors. I'm sure everyone enjoyed themselves and felt a little satisfaction afterwards. In closing, I wish to congratulate the

- Alpha Sigma's Active Fall The fall semester at Northeast Missouri State University at Kirksville, began with Mary Stout of Alpha Sigma Tau as Alpha Sigma Chapter's Fall Greek Week Queen candidate. The girls participated in many of the Greek Week relays, and a picnic and dance were held in conjunction with the week's events. Alpha Sigma Tau experienced a new rush plan which seemed to be very effective. The first of two Preferential parties was "Happiness Is" in which the actives dressed as Charlie Brown characters. Roxanna Hughes, music chairman, wrote a song especially for the occasion titled "Happiness Is AST". The second Preferential party was our annual "Wishing" and formal attire was required of the actives and rushees. The following day after a silence period of 24 hours, the Yell-In took place, and after a brief ribbon pledging ceremony, the actives enjoyed a barbecue with their new pledges. Not long after the excitement of rush had ended, Homecoming event took


place. Roxanna Hughes represented AST as a Homecoming Queen candidate. The new pledges participated in the Homecoming parade. November 19, the annual Founders' Day and Parents' Day Tea was held. Pledges presented skits, songs and a candlelighting service. In December, College Panhellenic held a tree trimming party with the pledges from each sorority presenting skits. Kathi Michalas and Linda Stelloh participated in extramural volleyball, . and Linda also played on the field hockey team. Selected as student ambassadors were Kathi Michalas, Sue Labath, and Sue Eichernier. Selected for college usher were Kathi Michalas and Sue Eichemier. Five pledges went through activation on January 28th; Cynthia Coffey, Jud Koehler Tami Krink Lucy Morse and Linda Stelloh.

Alpha Phzs Float to Victory As the calendar page turned to September, and the light fall rains began over Chester State College, the Alpha Phis returned to school filled with tales of the summer and expectations for the coming semester. Our first concern was of cou~se, rush. The preliminary tea, a S~ow White theme, was decorated with life size stand-ups of Snow White and the Dwarfs an~ feature~ a new friendship ceremony wntten by Lmda Troilo. A week later we held our second tea "Christmas in September." Several alum~ nae came to this formal tea . The main attractions on the refreshment table were three red velvet cakes served along with chocolate fondue, punch, and an array of tea sandwiches. Afterwards, in the true tradition of Christmas, everyone joined in singing Christmas carols. At the close of rush we were pleased to welcome Janet Christman, Cathy Christianson, Margie McCall, Linda Patterson, Pat Vogan, and Donna Wyche as our new pledges. The end of October brought both Rampage Weekend and monsoon conditions. Despite the torrential rains, our homecoming enthusiasm could not be dampened. The morning of the float competition, the Alpha Phis and the Friars turned out in full force to portray a drenched version of the 'Balloon Bust of W.W.I'. The soaking was well worth the victory! Halloween was celebrated twice this year. The first party was for the sisters, with goodies provided by our "trick or treating" pledges. A few days later, all the Greeks gathered at the Lionville Fire Co. for a Halloween masquarade party. All creatures from vampires to mummies turned out for this one! AST week took place in the beginning ANCHOR

of November. The highlight was the party given by the pledges where they presented their skit. Terrific choreography! Fall semester we were involved in two service projects. One was our continuous collection of coupons to help a local girl who needs a kidney machine. We also saved cancelled stamps for the African missions. On Founders' Day, November 11, the Philadelphia, Wilmington, and Alpha Phi alumnae came to West Chester for the celebration . The activities included a luncheon, a football game, and a hayride. However, thanks to the typical West Chester weather, the hayride was flooded out. December turned out to be an eventful month. Another all Greek party, an early Christmas celebration, took place on the second of the mon th. December 9, the anxiously awaited date for initiation, arrived at last. The morning ceremony at the Newman Center was followed by a smorgasbord luncheon at t he College Inn. The last meeting was followed by our annual Christmas party. President Nancy Murray played Santa and handed out Pollyannas. Despite upcoming exams, everyone was in good spirits. All in all, it was a memorable semester. Linda Capelli Carole Soucaze

Alpha Chi Has Busy Fall As predicted, this past fall at Northeastern University has been one of the busiest yet for AST. It all began with Rush events, our first being a Wine and Cheese Party for all interested Northeastern University women. Our next event, Paint a Picture of AST, was quite successful and gained seven pled ae for

us. Pledge Pinning followed shortly after and our pledges now will soon become our newest sisters. In October of the past year, AST hosted a Panhellenic Event entitled, "The Sensuous Dessert," where we served exotic looking goodies and coffee. Needless to say, everyone who attended gained a few extra pounds. Homecoming also came around in October and AST sponsored one of our own sisters, Ernestine Struzziero, as a Homecoming Queen Candidate, who eventually became a finalist. We also joined in the festivities by entering a float in the Homecoming float parade. This year's theme was "The Ingenuity of Man." In November, we cooked a Spaghetti Supper for Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity where an enjoyable time was had by all.

Bashful pledge at the Spaghetti Supper.

Some of our most recent happenings include a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, a visit to Children's Hospital where we went from ward to ward singing Christmas Carols, and a night out with our Alumnae where we all enjoyed a delicious steak dinner. Upcoming events for AST include a Ski Weekend sponsored by the InterFraternity Council and with the coming of Spring, Greek Week soon will be upon us. One of the highlights during Greek Week is Greek Sing where we will try for the second year in a row to capture the trophy. After that, we will have our annual sorority banquet and then graduation when four of our sisters will be leaving us. Looking ahead now, it appears that the Spring will be just as busy as the Fall.

Panda Bear is Beta Beta's lkrascot "If you want to inspire something lasting, do it with something that lasts." That was the motto that attracted five new sisters. Widener College ASTs extend a warm welcome to Margaret Gaffney, Linda McHorney, Terry McKissick, Monica Malone and Claire Smith. Our rush projects mixed the old with the new. To open the new year Beta Beta .54

sisters sponsored a "Brew Sip" . Coffee, tea, donuts and the sisters made the hour pass quickly. A few days later we held a game night in one of the women dorm on campus. The sisters and the pro pective pledge enjoyed thi fun tion o much that we already plan to ha another game night thi pring. At the end of pring m t r 197~ th ..-\


Beta Beta sisters adopted the panda bear as their chapter mascot. This fall in the homecoming float parade we used our little mascot for the center of attraction. The Beta Beta Panda and Willie Widener, the school mascot, held down the greyhound of the opposing school. The sisters and rushees all helped make our float the cutest in our eyes. October twenty-fourth saw our pledges ribbon pledged and on November sixth they were pin pledged. On December first the five pledges took their exams and December tenth was the date set for the initiation. After initiation the sisters and their dates were invited to the home of Mrs. Grace Locke for a combination initiation dinner and Christmas party. All the sisters had a wonderful time and we all thank Mrs. Locke and Mrs. Durney for their services. The pledges held a bake sale which was very successful. It not only helped to raise finances it also helped to make the name of Alpha Sigma Tau popular. After all who can forget the name of the best cooks on Campus? This year the sisters purchased their little sisters pins which arrived in time for

initiation. Previously, the new sisters were expected to purchase their own. As a token of their appreciation, the new sisters gave a tea for their big sisters. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and we plan to do it again. At Christmas the sisters donated funds to the Chester Boys' Club for a turkey Christmas Dinner. We know that all the boys had a very good time. Beta Beta would like to aid in this again next year. The first week in January brought all the sisters back to campus to plan rushing activities for spring. February sixth is the anticipated date for our second game night with refreshments. Another tea is expected to take place during late February. Other activities are in the planning stage now because during the early part of this semester the sisters are repainting and completely redecorating the Alpha Sigma Tau sorority room. All the sisters join me in wishing our secretary the best of luck in the future. JoAnn Cacciacarne announced her engagement this past Christmas to Harold Styer. If JoAnn is as devoted to Harold as she is to the sorority, Harold will be very, very happy. Alycia Sheila Mallon

Beta Delta's Carnival a Success The sisters of Beta Delta Chapter had a busy and fruitful fall semester at Duquesne University. President Terri Trioano and Vice-President Maryann Fincik returned from the summer's convention radiating with enthusiasm and new ideas. As a result of rush, we welcomed four new sisters into the sorority: Diane DiRuzza, Judy Eppolito, Chris McElroy, and Linda Tarullo. The new pledges were formally welcomed at a dinner reception and date party. ANCHOR

The main event of the term was our participation in Carnival with t he brothers of TKE. Our show, entitled "Bandoura's Pox", proved to be one of the most popular on campus. For her talented performance in the lead role, Pat Buckley won the "Best Actress" award. In celebration of Founders' Day, the sisters attended Mass and held a reception afterwards. Before departing for the holidays, the annual formal Christmas party was held, marking an end to the semester. Cheryl Waskiewicz 55

Beta Epsilon On The Move Though the fall semester began in a rather hectic state, the sisters here at Shippensburg State College, Shippensburg, Pa., arrived on campus from a long, relaxing summer ready to get in the swing of things. While still adjusting to a switch from term plan to semesters, Beta Epsilon quickly settled down to build this year's entry in the homecoming parade, with the theme being "The Past: A Look Toward the Future." Representing AST for Homecoming Queen was Beth Eisenhower. Rush Week ended with a "NiftyFifties" party and brought us eleven new sisters: Pattie Bothwell, Barb Brady, Becky Brown, Sue Carroll, Karen Chilutti, Midge Fry, Sandy Hart, Lucy Hostetter, Sue Pochak, Stacy Pysher, and Helen Schankel. Pledging was fun for not only our pledges but the sisters as well with many sister-pledge activities. Pledges were required to carry green and gold wooden anchors, an idea given us by the Alpha

Phi Chapter. We also had a highly successful pledge-trade day with Sigma Pi Fraternity. Beta Epsilon was quite active during the fall, ushering from a church, collecting supplies for flood victims in Harrisburg, and donating supplies and holding a Christmas party for the Aurora Club, an organization for emotionally disturbed children. A new slate of officers was elected for the new year to begin January 17. They are: Jill House, president; Janice Galecki, vice-president; Linda Diehl, treasurer; Linda Shaeffer, recording secretary; Laurie Cimino, corresponding secretary; Barb Brady, chaplain and Belinda Worthington, pledge mistress. We were very proud to have two of our sisters, Diane Worster and Helen Plunkett, named to Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. With the end of fall semester we bid a sad farewell to graduates Mary Cillo and Judy Bahn. Pattie Bothwell

Beta Zeta's rear Jilled with Projects and Parties At the end of the Summer of '72, the Beta Zeta Chapter of the University of Alabama in Birmingham, Alabama, looked forward to and prepared for another active quarter filled with projects and parties. After welcoming home our past Alumnae Advisor Mrs. Sybil King as National President with a candlelight ceremony, we launched our activities with an Anchors Away party for Rush. It was an informal get-together enabling new rushees to get acquainted . A Come-As-


You-Wish You-Were party followed. To help the rushees understand what sorority life consists of, we held a Rap party that was open for question and discussion. A final party, On A Serious Note, concluded our rush with bids out on Oct. 5. Our new pledges are Debbie Brink Janet Gardner, Linda Gordon Nancy Hanners, Vickie King, Pam Liles, Nanc Morse, Teresa Richard , Suzie mallwood, and Betti Smith. Ribbon and Pin pledging follow d th week after.

Mrs. Thomas J. King, Jr., National President, speaks at Founders' Day Banquet.

The Founders' Day Banquet marked the highlight of the quarter. Never before have our Taus worked so hard to make it a success. By the evening of November 18, our efforts brought forth a delicious banquet with Mrs. Sybil King, National President, as guest speaker, and a dazzling band to top the night. This year, Beta Zeta added to Founders' Day Who's Who announcements within our group. Projects for this fall included volunteering for Red Cross Bloodmobiles, Day

Care Centers, and hospital work. We were honored to have Nancy Morris and Carolyn McCain be named to American Colleges and Universities Who's Who. Carolyn was also elected editor of the school yearbook. The Beta Zetas would like to express to her fellow sisters who have fathers, brothers, and husbands returning home from VietNam a welcome of honor, love, and peace. Sofia Lafakis

Activity Surrounds Beta Etas Despite the usual lull in activity on college campuses during the summer months, the Beta Etas at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville managed to keep pretty busy. The girls got together often to have fun and to plan activities for Fall quarter. Summer projects for the Beta Eta Chapter included sponsoring a rummage sale and bake sale, taking some underpriveledged children to a zoo, and sponsoring a fashion show in which we modeled clothes for a local clothing store. Several times we attended rock concerts. Sorority members also attended a baseball game with their fathers and later during the summer, the Beta Etas got together and spent a day at Six Flags Over Mid-America, an amusement center. Six ASTs from SIU also were able to attend the National Convention at Virginia Beach, Va., in August. Beta Eta Kathy Jones and Kathy Pray filling baskets for AST food drive.


President, Karen Beckman, and Miss Linda Mason, National Alumnae Adviser, were our delegates to the Convention. Other members who attended the Convention and served as Convention pages were Sandi Gaa, Debbie Jones, J oni Saia, and Chris Weindel. As Fall quarter came upon us, the Alpha Taus prepared for rush activities. The first of our rush events was a dance with Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity. The following Saturday, the Beta Etas hosted a wa-TAU-melon festival for our rushees. The girls dressed in hillbilly-type outfits for the event which was held at a park in Edwardsville. Games, watermelon, soda, and other snacks were enjoyed by all. Rush concluded with a formal tea with cake and punch being served to AST members and the rushees. Slides showing the Beta Etas at work and at play were shown at the tea. Honored guests at the tea were our Patronesses, Mrs. Warren (Bernice) Brown and Mrs. Robert (Peggy) Schultheis. As a result of our efforts, we initiated four new sisters into our Chapter in January: Debbie Janco, Marla Miller, Lois Ridenour, and Adrienne Schmitt. The surrounding communities also saw the ASTs in action. In October, we served as hostesses for the Alton Historical Society at their banquet in Alton. Then, during November, Alpha Sigma Tau sponsored a Thanksgiving food drive for needy families in our area. We collected canned goods and money to buy food. We then filled large baskets with the goods and distributed them. In October, the ASTs also participated in SID's Homecoming events. Together with the brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, we constructed a float for the Homecoming parade. Our pledge dre sed as clowns and distributed candy to the children in the crowd while th active members of Alpha Sigma Tau and igma \

Phi Epsilon formed a "kazoo band" and marched behind the float. After the parade, everyone retired to the soccer fi~ld to watch our soccer team win its Ho~e足 coming bout. During the half-time ceremonies, Alpha Sigma Tau and Sigma Phi Epsilon were awarded second place in the Homecoming float competition. In honor of the National Founders' Day, the Beta Etas, the Pi Chapter from Harris Teachers' College in St. Louis, and the St. Louis Alumnae Chapter had dinner and conducted ceremonies at Romines restaurant in St. Louis. After the dinner, a fashion show was presented by Patricia Stevens' School of Modeling. Following the fashion show, the collegiate chapters sang songs. The evening ended with a candlelight ceremony. Miss Elizabeth Wilson, retired national president, was an honored guest at the banquet.

Fund raising projects for the Chapter included sponsoring several bake sales on campus during the quarter as well as selling candy bars for a month. Socially, ASTs made plans for a dance in January . Before Thanksgiving break, the actives and the pledges enjoyed themselves at a slumber party. Then before Christmas holidays, we all gathered around a Christmas tree to exchange gifts while we drank hot chocolate and ate cookies. The following Sunday, the pledges hosted a chili supper for the active members of AST. After the supper, many of the girls went to see a movie. This concluded Fall quarter activities for the Beta Eta Chapter at SIU and everyone dispersed for the Christmas holidays and Winter break. Pat O'Rourke

~Beckley . . . The Year In Review On February 13, 1972 the Beckley Alumnae Chapter met at the home of Mrs. Helen Cooke. A rummage sale was planned to be held in Beckley on March 25. Mr. Gene Holland, of the State Conservation Department was scheduled to speak before the group in March. The March meeting was held in the home of Mrs. Nancy Hajash. The business was conducted by Barbara York, the new president. A number of students at Concord College volunteered to help with the rummage sale to be held on March 25. Plans were made to give $100 to the chapter at Concord College. This amount of money was to be given on Founders' Day. A dinner meeting was arranged for the initiation of new members to be held in April. The Misses Ida and Rena Pitotti made the arrangements for the April meeting which was held on April 9 at Henry's Drive-Inn. A number of members were initiated into the local chapter.

dent. At this meeting the program was planned for the rest of the year. The September meeting was held in Bolt at t he home of Mrs. Arlene Chambers . Her home is located in a beautiful rural section of Raleigh county. It had been planned to hike to some scenic spots in the area, but due to bad weather the hike was eliminated for the time. The October meeting was held on October 22 at the home of Misses Ida and Rena Pitotti. Plans were made for the group to attend the Founders' Day luncheon and tea at Concord College. The group didn't meet for the November meeting as some of the members attended the Founders' Day luncheon and tea at Concord College. The members gathered for a meeting on Thursday, December 7 in the auditorium of the Appalachian Power Company. A brief meeting was conducted by the president. An excellent program on Christmas cooking was presented by Sandra Palen, home economist for the company . The group enjoyed a great variety of cookies and other Christma foods.

~ Bluefield . .. Community Conscious Recognizing the need of concerned adults for an enlightened awareness of the drug problem, the Bluefield alumnae purchased a narcotics and dangerous drug identification kit to be loaned to various organizations and civic groups in the community. The decision to make this kit available resulted from our November meeting at the home of Linda Pochi ck, at which time our group discussed the problem. Joyce Buchanan was hostess for the August picnic, an occasion we all look forward to as a time for catching up with one another. Virginia Bailey was a visitor from Florida, and Bula and Dr. Meade McNeill attended also. In September, Marcella Whitlock re-

~Buffalo ... Adoption of Collegiate Chapter Highlights Summer News Talk of the summer and convention dominated conversation at our September get-together. A beautiful late summer evening made dinner prepared by our hostess Florence Bates even more delicious. A business meeting followed where the major topics of discussion were convention reports and plans for the coming year. The most exciting news of the summer was our adoption of the collegiate chapter Alpha Tau of Edinboro State College in Pennsylvania. Kay Baxter was hostess for our September board meeting. October was another busy month for us. We began with a wine tasting party at the home of Fran Plachta. Thanks to ANCHOR

ported on the convention, which must have been one of the most successful. Marcella, as alumnae adviser, keeps us informed of activities of Omicron Chapter as well. Lorene Jarrett was hostess for the October business meeting at which time plans were made to attend the Founders' Day tea at the home of Mrs. Donzie Lilly of Athens. We met with Marcella in December and exchanged ideas on Christmas gifts to make and goodies to bake. With all the pleasant times we had together, grief touched us too, especially in the deaths of Janet Calfee Myles, former Bluefield alumna, and Dr. Robert Gatherum, Helen's husband. At the beginning of a new year, one thing is certain, Bluefield alumnae are and will remain involved and active people. Mary Ruth McClung

Fran and Janet Bartlett a good time was had by all. Later in t he month Dolore Schmidt was hostess for our regular des sert meeting.

Evelyn Gramp presented the program "Skoal, Scandinavia" including slides of her trip to the Scandinavian countries. The end of the month found us at the Iroquois Gas Company for a program titled "Reflections of Christmas" under the chairmanship of Norma Martin . After a delightful cooking demonstration the tasty dishes that had been prepared were raffled off to some of the lucky observers including President Kay Baxter who didn't have to cook the next day because she won the main dish. December caught us in the Christmas spirit. Mary Bolton entertained at our scheduled meeting which we combined with a Christmas party. Later in the month on a beautiful cold snowy evening Pat Nichols opened her home for a holiday punch party where all enjoyed good food , good drink and good conversation. Edie Eckert

~Denver ... Members R eap A wards A rose is a rose is a rose became a reality to each member who attended Denver's initial alumnae meeting this September held at the home of our president, Verna Pa3e. Verna and her husband Norman are ardent growers and exhibitors of hundreds of gorgeous award winning roses. The month being September, the roses were in full bloom. We found ourselves in a wonderland of fragrance and colorful splendor as we walked among the limitless species of roses in the garden. A delightful luncheon was enjoyed by all and each guest was presented a lovely rose upon departure. Betty Englen hosted our 0 tober meeting at her home, Sunshine Farm where final plan for the yea r were ompleted. 64

On October 27 Eleanore McKeeman was presented an award by the National Council of Geography Education at Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Eleanore was selected and given a certificate for outstanding imagination and creativity in teaching of geography education by integrating it into all subject matter areas of the curriculum. Mrs. Lola Quinlan, Media Specialist of Arapahoe County nominated Eleanore for t he award. Congratulations Eleanore! Your sisters are very proud of you. Antiques and homecrafted ware were our bag for the month of November when we visited the quaint Holiday Farm Tea Room. Cynthia Chile and her husband Arlin have announced a new arrival, a son, Robbie Garrett Chiles, born on December 2. Cynthia is a welcome new face in our chapter. The Chiles came to Denver from Emporia, Kansas, where Cynthia attended Kansas State Teachers College and was affiliated with Iota Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau. December, along with its snow and below zero temperature, brought fun and gifts at a Christmas party held in Eleanore McKeeman's gaily decorated home. We gathered at The Country Dinner Playhouse for lunch and viewed Annie Get Your Gun to celebrate the coming of the New Year and to make a few resolutions. Editor Vicki Garrett gave special thought to thankfulness for being back home. She and her family lived in Hilo, Vickie Garrett Hawaii, last year.

What A Fall We've Got For You! That title was Barb Davis' clever and apt announcement of the September alumnae meeting. Held at the home of soon-to-be-mother Ernita Sowell the evening proved to be one contin~ous exchange of news. Hearing of the convention and ~ uanita Bouffard's vice-presidency, marr~ages, new homes, pending moves, new JObs kept interferring with the business schedule of completing plans for the year. Efficient President Sowell kept the group to the task and the social hour following provided time for catchin g up with summer. President Ernita Sowell surprised us all by delivering a baby boy TWO WEEKS LATER! An anxious lad, he arrived two months ahead of time and had to remain in the hospital until his weight increased. Ernita is well organized and even made a between feedings appearance at the October meeting to condu ct the business meetings. Hostess Ladene Schoen provided pleasant hospitality. The main event of the evening was an auction of items brought by members. Proceeds aided our local social service projects. Dearborn Inn was the scene of our Founders' Day observance. Members from Hostess Ernita Sowell pause s for a photo with part of the Detroit Alumnae Chapter .


Putting in bids for the open auction are hostess Lad ene Schoen. Barbara Davis , and Caro le Em erick .

Ypsilan t i-Ann Arbor and Detroit I chapters as well as Alpha, Theta, and Alpha Theta collegiate chapters were in attendance. The resident theater development at Wayne State University was t he topic of t he program. The speaker, film , and dramatic readings proved entertaining to alL Detroit alumnae look forward to receiving Barb Davis' clever announcement of meetings. Always a new idea, alway a clever design and always a very special information item or reminder is added to the meeting news. The talen t was especially evident in the holiday Christmas tree design. Carol Emerick was ho tess for a Christmas party t hat included a White Elephant gift exchange. It is true that one person's white elephant is another's much wanted possession. It was a happy pre-holiday affair. A continuing flea market at each meeting is slowly but surely addin g money to our ]?cal social service fund. The January meetmg at the home of Juanita Bouffard provided an even more intere t ing exchange. The results of Christmas hou ecleaning and out with the old to replace the Christmas new were evident. Business is always dispatched with efficiency with pl.enty of t ime to sociaEze and to keep up with the progress in all our live . Juanita is never too busy with all her added orority responsibilities and Wayne tate activities to welcome u to her home. Rose Marie chmidt

First Chapter in Texas On February 15, 1972, Mrs. Sybil King and 14 Houston Alumnae met at the Holiday Inn in Houston for a meeting and dinner. It was decided that we would like to have an alumnae chapter in Houston. After several attempts, on a very bad and rainy night, we met at Maxine Stevens' apartment. Miss Camille Gennaro flew to Houston from New Orleans to install the new officers and initiate 14 alumnae into the Houston Alumnae Chapter. The officers are: Miss Maxine Stevens (Alpha Epsilon), president; Miss Brenda Holder (Rho) , vice president; Mrs. Sandra Juntunen (Phi ), secretary; Mrs. Dorothy Sims (Psi), treasurer; Miss Alicia Holder (Rho ), editor; Mrs. Maxine Perry (Rho), chaplain. Mrs. Betty Roeling (Iota) is our Houston City panhellenic representative and Mrs. Dorotha Sims is our alternate. We observed Founders' Day by having a luncheon in a private dining room in a local department store. We were pleased to have three new members in attendance. Mrs. Sandra Schreck (Alpha Epsilon) held the Christmas party in her home with husbands and dates in attendance. The evening was spent socializing and getting acquainted. Everyone took canned goods which were given to two Houston families that were unemployed. In January we met at Sharon Juntunen's for a Tuperware demonstration. We will be selling Tuperware between the January meeting and the February meeting. We are pleased to be the first alumnae chapter in Texas, along with the newly formed alumnae club in Amarillo. We hope there will be other alumnae chapters and clubs in Texas before long. Alicia Holder


~lansing ... On The Go Most of our members keep very busy with teaching, community affairs or "flitting" here and there. Margaret Twork and husband have left Mason for an extended trip to Arizona, New Mexico and California where they will visit their son John and family. Our president, Carolyn Forche is busily engaged, teaching in the Mason Jr. High School. She has had a rough winter, illness and death in the family. Our sympathy goes out to Carolyn fo r the death of her sister, Margaret Spring. Willow Cameron and her daughter Joan Slovens of Milford, Michigan spent a few delightful weeks last summer traveling in Spain and Portugal. Willow's son Jack, has just written his first novel-"The Astrologer", published by Random House. Jack made a flying t rip to visit his mother recently accompanied by the family and James Glickenhaus, the photographer of his book. Mary Bartolacci of Charlotte is a mother of eight children (some married) and has three grand children. She teaches second grade at St. Marys. Her husband Joe, is at present busy supervising an Educational School at Adrian, Michigan. This was formally the State Girl's Training School. Before the holidays, our Alumnae Chapter assisted the local chapter of the Michigan Association for Emotionally Disturbed Children with contributions to their successful Christmas Card Coffee. Mary Walton and sister Isabel Welch, still reside in ashville. Mary received her life certificate from Michigan State Normal College, 1905-now known as Eastern Michigan University. Mary has two grand children and two great-grand children. Isabel Welch has four grand children. She spent Christma holida 'vith her family in Ohio. Lenore Davi of Onondaga, had plann d to pend the winter in a n w ap rtm nt at HOR

However, the building wasn't completed in time to move, but Lenore expects to go down sometime in the future anyway, Dorothy Hughes is very active in the Charlotte Community Player's Guildeither acting in or directing the plays. The February play was "Come Blow Your Horn" . February 15, she was booked for a talk on Cuba, at Olivet. February 16, she was responsible for the program given for the Eaton County Medical Facilities. February 26, she gives a travelogue on Spain for the Charlotte Business Women 's Club. March 12, she has the program for Delta Kappa Gamma. (Who said that Dorothy had retired! ! ! ) Then on March 14, she sails on the USS Leonardo De Vinci for southern Spain and France. In all probability, Dorothy will be spending Holy Week in Seville. Florence Baker's life also seems to be filled with community affairs and travel. Last June, she spent sixteen fabulous days in London, Vienna and Paris - doing all those exciting things that one longs to do one day. ANCHOR

In May Florence and Paul expect to visit Switzerland, Austria and Germany. The occasion? Paul, who is the presidentelect of the Lansing Rotary is a delegate to the International Rotary Club conference at Lausanne, Switzerland. One of the highlights of t his trip will be a four day cruise on the Rhine, with stops at several interesting ports. Dorothy Brodhead's life sounds rather dull after all t his travel; but she manages to keep busy. She is still helping care for a dear 92-year-old lad y. The latest project was a 12 ft. x 3 ft. mural depicting the Nativity story. Beginning with December 3 and each Sunday thereafter, the mural changed to illustrate the minister's sermons-so t hat by December 24, the Christmas tor had unfolded for the congregation. Rev. Merrill concluded his service with the Vi itation of the Wisemen on January 14. Materials used were burlap, felt and various oriental satins with bronze-green garlands around the edge.

EnJ·oying Dinner Meetings We began our 1972-73 year with a meeting in t he home of our new president Becky Brown. We decided that on alternate months we would have dinner meetings in addition to our regular business sessions. To begin this practice, we celebrated Founders' Day with a dinner at Bruno's Italian Restaurant.

In December we had our annual Christmas party in the home of Alice Staggs. Rather than exchange gifts among ourselves, we brought canned goods for the Nearly Home for Boys in Little Rock. Alice arranged an evening of Christmas quiz games and provided prizes for the wmners. In January, we again met in Becky's home to begin planning our spring activities. We are looking forward to hosting our annual State Day for the three collegiate chapters in Arkansas: Upsilon, Alpha Gamma, and Alpha Mu. Nan Snow

~New Orleans ...

Bazaar Is Successful For New Orleans This year, for the first time, the New Orleans alumnae held summer meetings instead of disbanding in June . The purpose of t hese summer meetings was to work on projects for what became a very successful Christmas bazaar. The September meeting, held at Linda Trahan Plai ance's house, was for initia-


tion and installation of officers. The leaders for this year are: Ann Marie Duffy, president; Gail Siciliano, vice-president; Jane Ramagos, secretary; Cindy Krobert, treasurer; Kathy Calder, editor; Camille Gennaro, chaplain, and Annette LeBlanc, historian. Five new alums were initiated: Charlene Berthelot, Anita Allred Gradwohl, Marianne J auchler, Laura Moran and Kathy Anderson Seeger. This bring the total of our initiated alum to 26. October found 12 member a embl d at Marilyn Greene' home. Th bigg t discus ion wa , of our , the upbazaa . Al o at that tim , it w d

that Theresa Cusachs, Charlene Berthelot, Mary Jane Hooper, Janet Sipes and Marilyn Greene would attend the annual Phi Founders' Day Banquet in Hammond. Marilyn was selected to give our Phi sisters a Founders' Day present to help them financially. The regular November business meeting was suspended in favor of a November 11 workshop and the bazaar which was held on the 18th and 19th. To ensure a successful sale, we rented a stall in our French Quarter Flea Market. Our decision proved to be a good one, for we had a very successful sale. The money which we earned will enable us to make a contribution to Pine Mountain, as well as to finance a Mardi Gras party for the children of the Belle Chasse school outside of New Orleans. The Christmas meeting was fairly short so that we could enjoy the party at Kathy Kassevetis' home. We had another large turn-out of 18 members. As is our custom, we each brought a gift which was swapped

~Norfolk ... Silence Is Golden Our first meeting of the fall was held at the home of Diane Forrest on September 16. All kinds of plans and projects for the coming year were discussed and reports on various phases of the convention were given. (It still isn't too late to say how much those attending enjoyed meeting and greeting so many sisters!) October 21 found us in Portsmouth at the home of Alma Hall for dessert and a beautifully presented program by Mrs. Vernell Miller of fall and Christmas centerpieces and door decorations which were unbelievably lovely. Ann Creekmore was the lucky recipient of an extemporaneous Thanksgiving arrangement. Several of our members were in attendance at the Panhellenic luncheon held at Three Ships Inn in Norfolk.

Again, our gourmet reputation increased as we crossed over the bridge and / or tunnel to partake of Founders' Day Luncheon with our Hampton neighbors at the Colonial restaurant. A close feeling of sisterhood was experienced during the Candlelighting Service held afterward. We couldn't let Christmas come and go without a party, so all the galloping gourmets, husbands in tow, trotted to Chrystal Buckland's home in Virginia Beach on December 15, where a good time was had by all. January 20 found us at Jean Shield's home where it was necessary to have an all-business meeting in order to complete plans for a social service project the annual garage sale, and variou other upcoming events. It has been a good yea r for us thu far and we hope it will conti nue to be o. 69

Something New for Founders' Day Sixteen members came to the October meeting at Betty Allison's home. We received a wonderful report of the convention activities from all of our great delegates. We were happy to have some of the recent graduates from West Chester join us. Keep on coming, girls. November 11 found us wending our way to West Chester State College for Founders' Day. We had a noisy good time with everyone sharing their covered dish treasures. We did quiet down for the program, "The Green Circle". Maryland Wanek's new home in Abington was our destination for our Christmas meeting on December 9. Seventeen of us enjoyed inspecting all the rooms, dining, and exchanging Christmas decoration ideas.

Alumnae Chapter for a Founders' Day luncheon at Evans Farm. This was highlighted by a candle lighting service. We were honored to have with us Mrs. Mary Charles Smith, national vice-president of District III, Mrs. Mary Louise Doyle, National Panhellenic Delegate, Mrs. Charlotte Douglas, National Secretary, and Mrs. Meda Ray Sewell, National Convention Chairman. A holiday party was given in December at JoAnn Solomon's home. We exchanged gifts and worked on our social service project, making Christmas favors for children at Montgomery County Hospital. We decorated baby food jars with felt in the shape of Santa Claus and filled the jars with candy. In January, we are planning an outing to the Garland Dinner Theatre in Columbia, Maryland to see the play "Lovers and Other Strangers." We are all looking for ward to this occasion.

We began the day with a buffet luncheon at the Blue Room of Concord College, Mrs. Fern Phipps, National Housing Chairman, spoke to the guests and members which included alumnae from Princeton, Athens, Bluefield, and Beckley as well as the collegiates and the pledges. Before the luncheon was concluded, the collegiates honored Bula McNeill for her interest and help. Following the luncheon, we were invited to the home of Mrs. Donzie Lilly. Mrs. Lilly graciously received all sixty-five of us into her lovely home. While Patty Parkey provided piano selections, the alumnae and collegiates had a chance to visit and serve themselves from the beautiful tea table. Our thanks to Mrs. Lilly for an extra special afternoon. December was our annual Sunday Christmas luncheon. This year's luncheon was a bit different as we helped Patty Parkey surprise her husband on his birthday. We all enjoyed the cake! The year ended with our own Margaret Weatherford being selected Teacher of the Year for Mercer County. Margaret teaches third grade at Mercer Street School and she will be entered in the state contest. We are all very proud of Margaret! Sybil Keesee

folk Duke, and Donna Farmer Butler. The banquet was concluded with a candlelight service. One of our objectives as alumnae was to keep in contact with our collegiate chapters and to help when possible. We were able to put our constructive talents to work by making name tags for rush parties held by the Zeta Tau chapter at Longwood College. Several of our members attended Panhellenic functions. Donna Saffold represented AST at an information party for college freshmen before the start of the fall term. The fall luncheon was attended by Juanita Baxter, Carol Eubank, and Jane Ruffa and was held at the Salisbury Country Club. For our social service project our chapter helped in giving aid to dependent families. Pat Sours, social service chairman, worked with public welfare in finding these needy families. Our assistance helped send children on a school trip, brought educational toys for Christmas and brought household articles for these families. Through this project, our chapter hoped the new year would be happier for a few more families in this area. Marsha Holloway

We rattled our brains to come up with the program for the year's activities. Our hands got busy in October at Fran's with a paper tole demonstration by Roni and workshop for members and guests. Several pre-painted or stained plaques were finished and ready with their darling motifs of "cut outs" for early completed Christmas gifts. Our bodies were fulfilled when several of us joined for a customary Founders' Day celebration in Mt. Pleasant at Central Michigan University with the Betas in November. Our eyes and ears were keenly alert to the Saginaw Community Young People's Concert when it was attended by some of our members with a group of young disadvantaged women. These members of the YWCA Fun Club were also the benefactors of several dozen of our cookies for their Christmas party. With a look to the future , we filled the stomachs of ten prospective ASTs and nine boys with more cookies and ice cream at our cookie exchange Christmas party at Nancy Hanson's home. It does all our hearts good to be in the sisterhood of Alpha Sigma Tau. Carla Young ANCHOR

Our 1972-73 year got off to a swinging start when we gathered at the home of Genevieve Pitzer for a covered dish picnic. We spent a lot of t ime just talking and enjoying each others company. Barbara Maxwell, Ruth Seibert, and Genevieve Pitzer enlightened those of us who were unable to attend the national convention on some of the highligh ts of the convention. We were especially happy to hear that Dr. Sara Cree was given special recognition for her years of service to the sorority. Witches and gho ts showed up at Rut h Seibert's home in October when members dressed in costumes for that meeting. Ruth showed slides she had taken at the sorority's national convention in August. In November we joined with Chi Chapter for our Founders' Day Banquet. The program, honoring Dr. Sara H. Cree, was "A Bit of Photo Magic," showing interesting glimpses into the life of Dr. Cree by way of slides. Mrs. Alfred (Catherine) Collins, alumna and close friend of Dr. Cree, presented the program. Mrs. Mary Staley assembles apple-cone centerp iece.


Howard Carper, the newly appointed chapter advisor was introduced to the group. Miss Ruth Seibert, alumnae representative, conducted the impressive Candlelighting Service. We got in the Christmas spirit when we were warmly received at the home of Mary Staley, the hostess, assisted by her husband, Jim. Their home is the former quaint little schoolhouse in the quaint little village of Scrabble. She and Jim have a special interest in Williamsburg, Va.; therefore, they accented this throughout the house in the form of cresent lanterns, wreaths and centerpieces decorated with fruits and nuts. Even the tree was decorated with traditional ornaments depicting the 18th century. Mary enlightened the listeners with a brief history of "Christmas in Williamsburg." Mary displayed a beautiful handmade apple cone centerpiece, such as were made by the ladies in Williamsburg, which was given to Ida Hendricks as a door prize. We are looking forward to our January meeting with Barbara Maxwell, our president, when we will begin work on our local social service project. Dorothy Mason LeFevre

Keeping Busy The Washington, D. C., Alumnae Chapter started the new year with a pot luck dinner at the home of Betty Sue Glaeser in Fairfax. Everyone enjoyed the different selections of food. We were all excited about the August convention in Virginia Beach. Our own treasurer, Meda Ray Sewell, was re-elected National Convention Chairman. In October we all met at the home of Helen Sours in Northspringfield . We were involved in the project of making teaching materials for a special education class in the area . November skies found us celebrating our annual Founders' Day with the Prince


Georges-Montgomery Alumnae Chapter at the Evans Farm Inn in McLean, Virginia. Everyone loved the delicious meal and the gathering of old friends. Fun, excitement, and exchanging presents were part of the program for our December meeting at the home of Charlotte Douglas in Fairfax. A new member, Betty Gail Elliott, joined our group. We are very delighted to have her with us. We are looking forward to a very exciting winter when our husbands join us for a pot luck dinner in February. That should prove interesting and entertaining. Sue Carper

Conducts Candlelighting Ceremony On November 11, 1972, on one of our many rainy Saturday afternoons, about 65 gathered at West Chester State College in West Chester, Pennsylvania for a Founders' Day buffet. Alpha Psi members and alums were gracious hostesses with Philadelphia and Wilmington alumnae also in attendance. Our president, Ann Chalmers, conducted the candlelight service and Alpha Psi inspired us with their singing. The Green Circle program was presented by a West Chester volunteer, Mrs. Ralph Zadwenga. We were honored to have our district president, Mrs. Maryland Wanek, join us. Nancy Davies was the hostess for· our November meeting and Florence Borgnis entertained us with her European slides. We have welcomed two new alums who are Kathryn Harthorne Smith of Zeta Tau and Rebecca Dean Conn of Upsilon. Wilmington Panhellenic held a tea in October for all 50 year members and pa t presidents of Panhellenic. An evening at the Candlelight Theatre was sponsored in December. Our meetings for 1972 were conclud d by a lovely Christma part at th hom of Maggie Withrow. arol n Burl w A


~ Youngstown ... Our First Year Youngstown Alumnae held their first meeting at the home of Kathy White. This is our first year as an alumnae group and our meeting was basically to organize our year and renew old acquaintances. October was devoted to helping our college chapter with rush. We took over the kitchen duty so the girls would be able to spend all their time with the rushees.

~Hampton足 Newport News Extra, Extra, Read All About It!! This is your action reporter, reporting all the latest news from the HamptonNewport News area. The first scene of action was found in the home of yours truly where I covered the installation of new officers for 1972-73. Then plans were set in motion for the coming meetings of the year. My next assignment took me to the home of Janet Barner where I arrived just in time to catch the preview of the latest Bee Line Fashions. My, if you think autumn leaves are colorful, you should have seen the styles and colors our girls gracefully modeled from Bee Line. November came with all its rain and clouds but this didn't dampen this reporter's spirit. Again I was on the scene covering our Founders' Day Luncheon held at the Colonial Restaurant in Newport News. The Norfolk Alumnae Chapter were our euests and the atmosphere and food were great. Everyone relaxed and enjoyed this important occasion. ANCHOR

Founders' Day was celebrated with our collegiate chapter at the Sweden House Smorgasbord. A delicious dinner and a good speaker were enjoyed by all. Mary Ann Napolitan was hostess of our Christmas social which featured a one dollar gift exchange. It was surprising to see how many cute gifts could be purchased for less than one dollar. We are glad to welcome Mary Ann Stanecki and Cheryl Gorzy, who have recently returned to Youngstown, to our alumnae group. Sherri Remias

Christmas time is fun time but this reporter found that the girls decided in lieu of a party this year, that they were going to use their time to collect food, clothes and furniture for a needy family in the area. All items collected were greatly appreciated. After interviewing our treasurer I am glad to report that our money making adventures this year have proven quite successful. Our projects are: selling Current, Inc., stationery on a year-round basis, Christmas cards as applicable and we made a profit from our Bee Line Fashion Show. After reviewing our Chapter's activities for the past four to five months, I found there are a few more newsworthy items to note. Pat Woollum and family have moved to Norfolk as her husband accepted a position as assistant coach for Old Dommion University. Anita Slaughter and family have moved to Jacksonville, Fla. Her husband is now working for Westinghouse. Donna O'Malley was married this past December and she and her husband are still living in the area. Well, this winds up all the news for now, but you will be hearing from me again when I will be reporting to you once again on the activities and new from our area. Nancy Burt (;]

Winter Wonderland


Outside the snow is falling, but friends are calling, "You-who", as the YpsilantiAnn Arbor Alumnae Chapter tries desperately to trudge through Michigan's stormy weather to get together. Michigan is very definitely a winter wonderland. One always wonders if she can beat the weather to and from our winter meetings! In October we rustled through the Autumn leaves to Joan Carpenter's garage where we found bargains galore at a rummage sale. Stationery and cards from M.A.E.D.C . were also sold and the sale was profitable enough to enable us to send a sizeable contribution to Yorkwood as part of our continuing social service. Founders' Day was celebrated in fine style in November as all chapters met at Carl's Chop House in Detroit. This is always a most memorable event. We began to prepare for winter by gathering pine cones, branches, and other items which we took along to the home of Martha Belknap for a pine cone craft demonstration that was very interesting and decorative. Many of us came home with some beautiful arrangements for the coming Christmas season. Alas-by December that dreaded blanket of white covered the ground and the roads. Frosty, the snowman's work was apparent everywhere and we found ourselves wishing that we did have a sleigh and bells to jingle to get us to Ann Arbor to the Panhellenic bszaar. Instead we put on our boots, mittens, and very determined faces, gritted our teeth, placed our cars in the snow covered ruts, and finally slid into the driveway of the Theta House. It was beautifully alive with the spirit of Christmas and many varieties of items were sold. Afterwards, we borrowed their snow shovels, dug our cart out, bid them a hearty good-bye and thank you, and slid back home again to our own cozy fireplaces. 76

With a song in the air and warmth in our hearts, we gathered with our collegiate sisters later in December to share dessert and the spirit of Christmas. It was our pleasure to have Juanita Bouffard with us also as we sang carols until our voices cracked louder than the fire. However, instead of the traditional popcorn roasting by an open fire , we went modern and presented the collegiate girls with an automatic popcorn popper to be used at their activities. I don't know which popped more-they, or the popcorn popper-for these girls are always bursting with energy! January found us together again with the collegiate girls planning rush parties and other coming events. Construction paper, paper doilies, glue, and scissors surrounded us as we literally put our heart and soul into making decorations, invitations, and planning desserts and entertainment for their Valentine party in February. Unfortunately,situations evol-led which prevented this from being a very happy Valentine party even though we had a very large turnout of alumnae, collegiate girls, and our district advisor. The honored guests were missing-the rushees. We found to our dismay that the availability of girls on campus wishing to become sorority members was practically nil. It seems as though the Greek way of life on this campus, as well as others, I'm told, is diminishing to the point whereby these organizations are almost extinct. Women on the campus are not finding a need for sorority affiliations. How very sad and unfortunate this seems! Therefore, as alumnae, our prime objective and plans were formulated to try to revive our chapter, recruit more new members, and work together to bring the Greek way of life back to E.M.U. We shall continue to devote the rest of the year and longer, if necessary, in a dedicated movement to fulfill this objective. We do hold high the ideals of sorority life and do hope our efforts will be effective and that Alpha Chapter will flouri h, not fade awa and be forgotten. The pa t i behind u and we now turn our attention to th future with high hope . Jo B r
