C[)o~othy u\At~th qjouVtg.1orA Weaver, Craftsman, Artisan

Dorothy Mirth Young, October 1972, seated at the loom in her studio in Sharon , New Hampshire

Although our correspondence with Dorothy began in October 1973, after reading of her activities in the I ota Newsletter, a commission kept her occupied until December, 1973. During the following year our efforts to get an article on her weaving activities were acknowledged but arrangements were never co mpleted. In the fall of 197 4 we were shocked to receive word of her death on April 18, 1974. We are deeply indebted to Dr. Lloyd P. Young , her husband, and partner in many enterprises, for providing the news clippings, pictures and personal notes.


W e regret that we were unable to complete this tribute before her death-we are grateful that she knew of our plans. We hope the following report of her accomplishments will stir a fe eling of pride in all of you who share the Alpha Sigma Tau bond of sisterhood with Dorothy Mirth Young , No.1 initiate of Iota Chapter at Emporia State. Her determination, perserverance and talent have brought pleas ure into the lives of many who had the privilege of sharing her life through learning and appreciation of her accomplishments.


Dr. Lloyd P. Young , Presid ent Emeritus of Keen State College, accepts the Granite State Award presented posthumously to Dorothy Mirth Young

COLLEGE-ROMANCEMARRIAGE Dorothy Mirth, the oldest of seven children was born on a farm in Hanover, New York in 1899. After graduation from high school as an honor student, her determination to get further education led her to take the U.S. Civil Service Examination, which she passed, and accepted a secretarial position in Washington, D.C. One of the people for whom she worked, Professor Walter E. Meyer, on leave of absence from Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia, learned of her intense desire for a college education. Soon after the war ended Professor Meyer offered her a part time secretarial position on campus. She accepted the position and enrolled at KSTC in September, 1920. It was here that she met the young man she would later marry. "I was a student at the college then", writes Dr. Young. "We started to 'gotogether' regularly during 1921-22 and announced our engagement just before I graduated in 1922. I got a job teaching in Liberal, Kansas and Dorothy continued in college to receive her degree in 1923." The following year both young people taught in the Elmdale, Kansas Rural High School. At a time when married women teachers were unheard of, even in the most progressive systems, they were able to convince the Elmdale School Board that they could continue to perform professionally as a married team. And so they were married in 1924 and continued teaching in Elmdale for four more years. ANCHOR

Dr. Young's biographical sketch continues: "By that time we had earned enough to repay our loans to obtain our Bachelor of Education degrees, and save money to go to graduate school for a year. We enrolled in Teachers College, Columbia University and both obtained our Master's Degree in 1929." While her husband continued in school for an advanced degree Dorothy taught in a secretarial school. After receiving his Ph.D. Degree in 1930, Dr. Young accepted a teaching position in Holyoke, Mass. for two years, moved to Berlin, N. H. as Superintendent of Schools for seven years after which he became President of Keene Teachers College, Keene, New Hampshire. On his retirement twenty five years later the Youngs spent two years in Peru, South America, then returned to New Hampshire to build and enjoy their retirement home near Peterborough, New Hampshire. Dr. Young closes his letter: " I am writing all this to show how Dorothy worked hard to obtain her college education, helped determine the goals for both of us, and then continued to work hard to help attain these goals. We were married nearly 50 years. Dorothy was a great companion, mother, and an inspiration. With her continuing inspiration, and many happy memories, I am trying to do some of the things we had planned to do together." DOROTHY DISCOVERS WEAVING Although Dorothy was always interested in cloth and sewing, her interest in weaving was not aroused until the Youngs moved to New Hampshire when she enrolled in a weaving class given by Robert Heartz through the League of ew Hampshire Craftsmen. This led to the organi zation of a group of women intere ted in weaving who met in her house weekly, and to Dorothy's continuing search for more knowledge and skill. As her interest and enthusiasm increased she became an active member of t he New Hampshire Weavers Guild and the Weavers Guild of Boston. She attended workshops in the states and abroad to study with uch noted weavers as Peter Collingwood, E a 3

Antella, Irma Robinson, Malin Selander, Marg Snyder and Elsie Regensteiner. As a result of her study she, too, became a master of the art and taught classes and workshops for National and local guilds . RECOGNITION ... Just a week before her death Dorothy received word from the University of New Hampshire that she was to be the reci pient of the Granite State Award for 1974, to be awarded on October 13. This citation, accepted by Dr. Young reads as follows : " The Granite State Award is presented to Dorothy Mirth Young teacher, weaver, craftsman and artist; examples of her versatile talent and art have been exhibited in places as distant as Sweden and India, indicating the international recognition bestowed on one of New England's most accomplished weavers and designers. Consistent with the philosophy she held her entire life, she generously shared her talents, skill and sense of beauty through teaching, demonstrating, exhibiting and encouraging others throughout the Northeast. An educational television film, " The World and Work of Dorothy Young" has been shown in every state of the United States. This film reflects the sensitivity and in-

sight the dedication, devotion, serenity and beauty of Dorothy Young, whose life and example we join in honoring today, October 13, 1974." The Peterborough Transcript and feature writer, Kate Kendall have provided the pictures of Dorothy in her studio and an article expressing the admiration and affections of her friends and neighbors. ARTS .. . ETCETERA . . . by Kate Kendall, courtesy of the Peterborough Transcript, April 25, 1974 ... "The day shall not be up so soon as I To try the new adventures of tomorrow!" " These lines, ascribed to a young man by the greatest of all poets, might have been written about Dorothy Young. Until the day she died, she had been happily engaged, in a spirit of perpetual adventure, in doing what she loved. "So, though her sudden death shocked and grieved her family and friends, it seems right to assume that Providence was kind in decreeing that to the very end she should have continued the work that was an inseparable part of her life. It was a work t hat was also an art and it gave satisfaction not only to her New England neighbors, but to people around the world." Just the day before a scheduled workshop in Concord, Lloyd Young took Dorot hy to the hospital where the doctor ordered a few days rest. The following mornin g a phone call came from the hospital. Mrs. Young had died quietly in her sleep. "The house built by the Youngs in the lovely woods of Sharon, overlooking the mountain, is filled with samples of Mrs. Young's work, much that had been finished and some to be completed . " Lloyd Young says quietly that he' going on with all the t hin gs they planned. She would never for an instant doubted t hat he would."

THE PROFILE OF AN ALUMNAE DELEGATE Lois O'Dell, Lambda Could you be a typical alumnae delegate? If so, you are married, have a Bachelor of Science degree, teach school, and belong to several organizations. You love your family and friends, and of course, Alpha Sigma Tau . Such is part of the profile which emerged from the survey of 53 alumnae attending the Detroit Convention who replied to Maxine Stevens' que tionnaire. The survey results picture the typical delegate as being about 30 years old, give or take a year or two, with brown hair and


brown eyes. She tands 5' 5" and has probably added a few pounds since leaving college. The fact that she loves to cook probably follows logically. As a personality type, she i an extrovert. She is ambitious, likes to keep busyand, although her favorite pastime is reading, she also likes some kind of outdoor sports activity.

Since joining Alpha Sigma Tau, she has always been involved in sorority activities and was an officer of her collegiate chapter. She knows quite a bit about sorority history, and since leaving college she has been an active alumna. She has ANCHOR

attended at least one National Convention, perhaps two. If this description fits you, why not plan to attend the next convention in Kansas City? If not, come anyway and add your statistics to future profiles. 9

WELCOME to BETA TAU On December 19, 1969, Beta Tau, Lowell Tech's second sorority was accepted by the Board of Trustees. The idea of a second sorority was begun because of the need of several girls of L.T.I. to have something else for themselves. One of their main purposes was the hope of changing the image of the "Tech girl" in the eyes of students and fa culty. Since then Beta Tau has had a 'Help Week' at the beginning of each fall semester and for the first time this year, a 'Help Week' at the beginning of the spring semester. Beta Tau has continued to maintain its high standards of scholastic achievement and participation in extra-curricular activities ranging from student government, women's sports to other student organizations. The members have also become involved with many service projects both on the L.T.I. campus and in the Lowell community. Through its many activities - social functions , rushing events, fund -raising projects, service projects and intramural sports - Beta Tau has made many sisters' college years so much more memorable and invaluable. With its approaching future as a University, Lowell Tech is expected to become an even more significant academic and cultural center. In 1975, Beta Tau petitioned Alpha Sigma Tau for national affiliation and on February 22 was pledged as Beta Tau Chapter. The period encompassing 1895 through 1974 has seen Lowell Technological In-

stitute incorporated as the Lowell Textile School, enlarged as the Lowell Textile Institute and transferred in 1918 as a property of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts . Designated as Lowell Technological Institute in 1953, the Massachusetts school is scheduled to merge with neighboring Lowell State College this year, forming t he Univer ity of Lowell. The growth and progress of L.T.I. has clo ely paralleled the changes in name, and today ranks as the most important science, engineering and technical school in the state. Programs in the academic realm are offered at both undergraduate and graduate levels. The combined enrollment for t he co-educational institution, including conti nuin g education programs is nearly 10,000. Although ihe majority of students are from the New England area, some 49 nations are represented at the school by foreign students. The physical plant of the 80 acre campus, located 25 miles north of Boston, on the banks of the Merrimack River, includes a complex of 29 building . Among recent construction are an 18 story student union building, featuring h ousing and facilities for student organizations, a large modern library, one of the world's finest chemistry buildings, a nu clear center and an Olympic size swimming pool and a hockey rink. An Arts and Science building, named in honor of President Olsen, was opened la t fall.

Ruth Magers Gl osse r A lpha. 1924

Designer of the Sorority Crest In 1926, Ruth Magers, Alpha '24 recognized the AST Crest embossed on her future brother-in-law's attractive ostrich cigarette case. He remarked that the case had been a sorority formal favor. Miss Magers quickly responded that she had designed the AST National Crest while a member of the Alpha chapter in the college year 1922-1923. Many events have transpired in the life of Ruth Magers since she graduated from Michigan State Teachers College (now Eastern Michigan State University). The daughter of the late Professor Samuel D. and Ella Kirtland Magers taught Home Economics, English, and Art in the Dennison and Stryker (Ohio) School Systems before marrying Dr. Thomas V. Glosser in 1929. Dr. Glosser has been a practicing physician in the Dennison-Uhrichsville, Ohio area for fifty one years. Since her marriage, Ruth Magers Glosser was employed as a teacher in the Uhrichsville High School and adult education programs. She and her husband are the parents of one daughter, Jane ANCHOR

Glosser Hubert, a Masters graduate in Social Work from the Ohio State University where she was a member of Alpha Phi Sorority. Mrs. Hubert is presently a clinical practitioner of P sychiatric Social Work at Harding Hospital in Worthington, Ohio. Her son, James G. Hubert is Freshman Class vice-president at Mt. Union College in Alliance, Ohio, where he is a pledge of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. Her dau ghter, Mary Ellen Hubert is a high school senior and plans to attend college in t he Fall. Fifty two years have passed since Rut h Magers Glosser designed the ational Crest which contains the major elements of Alpha Sigma Tau sisterhood. Living in Eastern Ohio, she looks forward to receiving the ANCHOR with its news of active and alumnae activities. And, with each glimpse of the Crest, she remember her lasting contribution to Alpha Sigma Tau. We are indebted to Ruth for a lovely and permanent reminder of our ideal .

We went to the Homecoming football game together on Saturday and although Eastern lost to Kent State, we all had a great time anyway. We had an Open House for pledges and alumni and their escorts. This year for our 75th Anniversary, our Founders Day, luncheon was held at Win Schuler's in Ann Arbor. The speakers were Du Wayne Martin and Lorretta Roche from Ypsilanti State Hospital who had a presentation about helping emotionally disturbed children. The lunch was delicious and the speakers were very interesting. We have also been very active in sports. We played softball, football and volleyball. It is challenging, it keeps us on the go, and it helps to keep us in shape. Rita Slachter

Zetas Life Full of Actzvi~y The semester started this year with the sisters anxiously anticipating rush. Our t heme, Taus on Sesame Street proved to be fun for the sisters and rushees alike! After a long and tiring pledge period, we proudly initiated sixteen new sisters on December 8. Homecoming was celebrated the weekend of October 26. The activities started off with the construction of our float entitled Tau Olympics in accordance with the theme of International Flare. Friday,


sisters, pledges, and their dates all celebrated the beginning of a fun filled weekend. Early Saturday morning, our float was on its way past the judges stand followed by AST's homecoming canrudate Debbie George who was elected to the court. Debbie George also represented the Zeta chapter this summer at the Alpha Sigma Tau convention where she was crowned Princess. On October 28, twenty-four sisters rederucated themselves in a formal ceremony after our regular business meeting. The ceremony was very solemn and one to be long remembered. For Halloween, we united with the brothers of Phi Mu Delta and gave the head start children downtown a party. The pre-schoolers all seemed to enjoy themselves but not half as much as the sisters giving the party. Founders Day celebration this year had a different atmosphere. The festivities started Friday night November 3 with sisters and pledges going on an overnight retreat. Saturday the sisters from Mansfield State joined us for a formal ceremony. We are presently planning a Christmas caroling outing at the Allenwood Prison. If all goes well, we will be merrily singing for the inmates along with the brothers of Tau Kappa Epislon. On December 8, we will be participating once again in the annual Aqua Capers. We will be competing against other sororities and fraternities on campus to keep our first place trophy. Janie Murray

Fall 1974 pledge pinning with Big Sisters.

Fall rields Four New Members for Thetas Fall quarter at Theta Chapter, Wayne State University, began with our informal rush party; the theme was "Get to know Alpha Sigma Tau informally". One of the actives, Kitty Bowlds, volunteered her backyard for this rush party, which was a campfire-sing-along. Our big brothers attended and helped get the fire started while the actives got acquainted with the rushees. Our formal rush was held at Sigma Pi Fraternity House. Each rushee was given a yellow tea rose and a candle to show our sincerity and friendship. The result of our rush program, initiated by Donna Kanigowski, Rush Chairman, are our 1974 Fall Pledge Class: Jean Bury, Ivy Gold, Donna Psi en ski and Judy Wheeler. They were a very enthusiastic pledge class and were initiated on December 17, after which we went to dinner at Schweizer's in Detroit. Beverly Gryczko, our Chapter Adviser, has been a tremendous help during pledgANCHOR

ing, as well as in every day sorority business. Most of the actives are involved in a variety of activities and honors on campus. Judy Fox, our nominee for Convention Queen, is on Sigma Pi Fraternity's Sweetheart Court, and because of her great involvement in Theta Chapter, which is usually behind the scenes, she is the Top Tau from our Chapter for the 1974-1975 school year. Our President Barbara Kotula is graduating in June. She serves on the executive board of the National Art ducation Association at Wayne State and still maintains the highest scholastic average in our Chapter. Diana Luna was on the Wayne State Homecoming Court in October. Sue Rivard is Panhellenic President at Wayne State and was also on Mortar Board for her achievements and involvement in Wayne State Activities. She is also Social Service Chairman and has initiated the selling of Christmas Cards for the emotionally disturbed, by our Chapter.

Iota Stays Busy All Sernester The Iota Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau at Emporia Kansas State College had a great fall semester, proudly pledging sixteen new sisters. Two of our sisters, Janey Froome and Debbi Miller, began their year of varsity cheerleading. We started out the year with our first exchange with Delta Zeta and two fraternities, Acacia and Sigma Tau Gamma. It was a great time of dancing and getting reacquainted at the 5th Season. Then on September 19 we had a 50's party. It was a real success and even Wolfman Jack showed up to give the kids a thrill . We next had a Volleyball Party at the new Physical Education building and played some exciting games. On September 26, the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity picked us up in the Skateland bus and took us all to the skating rink, a wild but fun exchange. Our exchange with the Phi Delta Theta fraternity was a football game on October 10. Even though we emerged bruised and winded, we had to admit we'd had a fantastic time. The Bloodmobile was on EKSC's campus at the beginning of October, so the 1st, 2nd and 3rd we all worked on blood bag assemblage and the braver ones of us gave a pint of blood. Later in October, we took 35 stuffed animals we had made to the Emporia Welfare Agency to use for Christmas. A big event this year was Dad's Weekend, October 5th and 6th. Saturday afternoon, we gave a skit for our pops, had our pictures taken and sat down for a good chili supper before heading for the football game. After the game, we took our dads out dancing and ended our weekend after church on Sunday. This year our brothers also came so it was a good family time for us all. 18

The big Homecoming activities this year were on Nov. 2. We won the 2nd place trophy for our float, and 3rd place in house decorations. We whipped the Fort Hayes Tigers 28-13, and at half time ceremonies, Susan Alberg was named to Who's Who in U.S. Colleges and Universities. Following the game, we were hostesses to a tea at the house for the alumnae. Founders Day was celebrated on November 12th with dinner at the house for the alums. Following dinner a speech on the History of Iota Chapter was given by Diana Gerard. We were then entertained with some lovely selections by the Emporia High School Acappella Choir. Our Yell ow Rose Formal, was held on December 7th and on December lOth we had our Christmas party. Then came the week of final exams. We only hope that our spring semester will be as successful as this fall semester has been. Mona Percy

Otnicron Welcomes Chapter Counselor Nineteen Omicrons returned to Concord College this fall excited to be starting a new semester of activities. And a busy semester it has been! We started off with a popcorn party for our independent friends , with games and lots of songs. Soon, rush was upon us. Our first party was an outdoor bash at president Mandy Covey's house . But eventually we had to move inside, soaked to the bone becau e the weather refu ed to cooperate. Our formal party was a S'.-vingin' 60's part with limbo rocking and bubble gum blowing contests.

Vickie Rothausen, and Mary Simpkins. We also initiated two pledges from last spring, Vanessa Campbell and Ruth Sauret. As we moved into the semester, we had socials with four fraternities: Alpha Sigma Phi, Theta Xi, Pi Kappa Alpha and Tau Kappa Epsilon. Midterm caught us working on our Homecoming Queen campaign. We sponsored Susan Carlton in the contest with help from the TKE fraternity. We based the campaign on the slogan, "Don't be losin'-Vote Susan." On the day of homecoming we welcomed back several alumnae and guests with a wine tasting party. Omicrons donated their time and a lot of work to two worthy causes this fall by working for, and donating blood to the Red Cross Bloodmobile and by collecting $60 for UNICEF in nearby Princeton. We met Halloween with another party for our independent friends. Ghosts, witches, and goblins were on hand with plenty of refreshments to entertain them. Sometimes we even scared ourselves. Founders Day was celebrated here at Concord with a banquet, candlelighting and rededication ceremonies. In attendance were 20 collegiates and 19 alumnae from our Princeton-Athens and Bluefield Alumnae Chapters. As the end of pledging drew near, the actives had a slumber party for the pledges and the pledges honored the actives with a "Dig 'Em Taus" Big SisLittle Sis party. Then we all began working on our annual Sadie Hawkins Day Dance, cosponsored this fall by our Sigma Tau Gamma brothers. We had a special guest for our dance: Barb Trainer, collegiate chapter counselor, visited us for about a week. We all enjoyed her visit; she's a fantastic lady. Also at the dance Roberta Brizendine was announced as the best pledge of fall1974. With finals upon us, we took a break for a Christmas party honoring our graduating seniors, Debbie Bowling and Mandy Covey and saw the year out, looking always forward to returning in the spring.

pledging, each pledge is given an unfinished smiley face on a piece of round wood. She has to have a signature from every sister (by visiting and being visited) before she can be initiated. When the unfinished smiley face is signed by every sister, a smile is burned into the wood and is presented at initiation. It seems to be working quite well, as it gets the sisters to visit pledges and pledges to visit sisters. Our National Founders Day was extra special this year. In addition to our special guests, including the Director of Collegiate Chapters, Mary Charles Ashby, and Epsilon District President Beth James, we witnessed the initiation of a new alumnae chapter! We are so proud of the women who organized this chapter, and are thrilled that the Radford area now has an alumnae chapter. As our social service project, we showed cartoons to underprivileged neighborhood children. We provided transportation and served the children popcorn and fruit juice. We enjoyed it as much as the children did! Every fall quarter, the senior sisters are presented their AST mugs by the nonsenior sisters. This year, the mugs were presented at the climax of the fall pledge class party. We then jumped into cars and went to the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity house at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg and "initiated" our mugs! Alpha Lambda is losing a great sister this quarter. Bittsy Reed is graduating and will be greatly missed by her sisters. We congratulate her and wish her well in the coming years. Alpha Lambda is very proud of their president, Becky Jennings, for winning "Top Tau" at Convention this year. We are also thrilled about our 98 % efficiency! Congratulations to Madonna Echols and Pat Edwards on their award winning song and to Kathy Sowards and Leslee Wade on the award winning scrapbook. Fall quarter is now finished, and we are already planning and preparing for winter quarter. We anticipate a successful rush. Working together is one of the binding forces that strengthens our sisterhood. Carla Miller ANCHOR

Alpha Mu News Alpha Mu U. of A. Monticello began the year by having many money making projects. The first of these was our bake sales, in which we proved our ability at baking slice-n-bake cookies, or better yet, the no-bake goodies! If our cooking was not enough, we then tried our hand as salesman in our two rummage sales. After everyone had experienced our "sales" they were thrilled with the chance to get even with us, as we once again had a dunkin' booth at the Fall Fun Festival. With our newly revived Tau Spirit, came our three new sponsors. Mrs. Kathy Blagg, Miss Kathy Brown, both instructors at UAM, and Miss Vickie Todd, one of our very own alumnae. Gail Gardner has been a cheerleader at U AM for two years, and this year she was elected captain of the squad! Our list of Taus was high in those who made Who's Who: Cinda Yelvington, Rose Holley, Wanda Strother, Mary Thomason, Pat Monk, Joy St. John, and J aye Robinson. Cinda Yelvington was elected president of the speech fraternity, Pi Kappa Delta. Joy St. John was also elected president of Royer Dormitory. Preceding Open Rush, we had an open house, welcoming all UAM women to come see our sorority room, meet the Taus and have refreshments. This was a fun time for all. After open rush ended, we gained one new Pledge, Peggy Wails, who was elected a state nursing officer at the Arkansas State Convention. With Homecoming Activities came the theme of the 20's. We began our fe tivities by sending our alums a newsletter with Mary Thomason as editor. We had two main winners of the homecoming games. Joy Scucchi was a runner-up in the Charleston Contest and Dorothy Richard was crowned Miss Flapper by 25

Linda Johnston, last year's Miss Bobby Socks. Joy Scucchi was also 1st runnerup in the Miss Flapper Contest. Our pregame activities consisted of an open house for all alumnae. We celebrated Founders Day with our annual Mother-Daughter tea. This is a time in which we can share with our mothers our love for the sorority by telling them a part of our history, singing songs, and seeing our sisterly love. Halloween and Christmas both found Alpha Mus busy decorating the doors in the dormitories with Halloween candy sacks and Christmas trees decorated with candy. Because the Alpha Mus no longer have a brother fraternity with Sigma Tau Gamma, we had our Christmas formal with Theta Xi fraternity, where Joe Dunaway and Mike Brooks were announced as Alpha Sigma Tau Beaus and Mary Thomason was given the award as 1974 Best Member. Linda Johnston

our rush party, and it was certainly wort? our while. Many rushees expressed their sincere compliments on a successful party. Homecoming weekend was an enjoyable time for all, and especially for the Taus. We were very proud of Janice Butko's fine representation as a homecoming queen candidate. We were very proud of our float, also. The theme was Taus in Toyland and, the Alpha Xi Chapter won first place out of all the sororities for our float. Among other accomplishments, the Alpha Xi Chapter is proud to proclaim the news of collecting one-hundred eighty eight dollars for the United Fund. The Taus celebrated Founders Day by getting together with the Zeta Chapter at Lock Haven State College. The Alpha Xi Chapter is very proud to announce its initiation of nine wonderful girls.

The sisters had a sorority tea where parents could meet other parents and learn more about the sorority. On September 23, we had our rush party and the theme was Tau-Italia. We arranged the lounge in the style of an Italian restaurant and served meat-ball sandwiches, punch, and cookies to the mshees. The sisters were cleverly dressed like Italians.

Alpha Pis

Keep Busy The fall semester for the Alpha Pi Chapter at Slippery Rock was a very worthwhile and active one and found the sisters busy with sorority activities. We started the fall semester with informal rush and as a result received eight new pledges. After pledging for seven weeks the Alpha Pi Chapter has eight new sisters.


Homecoming was a big event for Slippery Rock and for the Greeks. We worked on our Homecoming float with the brothers of Theta Chi and the Theme of our float was "Huckleberry Float." The float was never completed or entered in the Homecoming Parade. The night before Homecoming t he barn in which the sisters and the brothers had been building the float caught on fire and destroyed the float as well as t he barn which was owned by Mr. Porter McCandless. It was a great disappointment to us and to the Theta Chis but the sisters and the brothers got together to decide what could be done for Mr. McCandless. The Porter McCandless Fund was established and money was collected from other organizations on campus as well as from the community. 27

To date the Fund contains about 500 dollars. The Alpha Pi Chapter was pleased to welcome a new chapter adviser. Mrs. Kim Newingham Roe, an Alpha Pi Alumna, is now our adviser replacing Joanne Genova who is now District President. We are proud of both of sisters as they continue to serve Alpha Sigma Tau. The sisters participated in activities on campus once again this year. The brothers of Sigma Pi sponsored a Bikini Contest and our contestant was Mary Foltz. Then the brothers of Tau Kappa Epsilon sponsored a Go Go Contest and dancing for us was Kathy Schraefper. To get together with each other we held a bowling party which resulted in a fun time for all attending. To keep up good Greek relations the sisters enjoyed mixers with the fraternities on campus. One mixer the sisters really enjoyed was held on Halloween night with the brothers of Phi Sigma Epsilon. Everyone dressed up in costumes and it was really a sight to behold. Needless to say the party was a great success and the sisters are looking forward to next Halloween . This year Slippery Rock held Regional Day formally referred to as State Day . Indiana won the attendance award as sisters from our region were invited to get together to exchange ideas. It was a rewarding day for all who participated. Dawn Petarra

Alpha Rho Attends Regional Day Alpha Rho started this school year by hosting Mrs. King and Miss Barbara Trainer who came to Youngstown State to help with rush. Our neighbor chapter, Alpha Pi at Slippery Rock, helped us by pre enting a cute skit with "Mother


Goose". Thanks Sisters! Alpha Rho also attended the Beta Regional Day activities at Slippery Rock. It was a very enjoyable day and great to see our Alpha Pi friends. Our member, Patti Hiland, just completed her internship in the accounting program winter quarter. Now she's diving into campus activities as chairman of Y.S.U.'s annual Greek Sing. We're looking forward to an eventful spring and hoping to find some pledges to carry on with Alpha Rho. Patti Hiland

Alpha Sigma Takes Nine New Pledges The girls who represented Alpha Sigma Chapter at Convention '74, Judy Koehler and Anita Moritz, returned with many new ideas learned from other chapters and with a large amount of enthusiasm for all of us! Rush '74 proved to be a very successful one, which was held from September ninth thru the twenty-third. In Formal Rush at Northeast Missouri State University, we incorporated a 50's party, and a slide presentation for the first group of parties. For our Formal Parties, we used the same theme which had proved successful last year, "Alpha Sigma Siesta", again an extremely good party!

NMSU's Homecoming fell on October nineteenth this year, and Miss Tami Krink proudly represented AST as our candidate. Tami was really kept busy with car parades, TV and radio interviews, rehearsals, all a part of the campaign. The Alpha Taus also helped the Pi Kappa Phis decorate the gym for the dance Saturday night after the game. The AST girls had an entry in the Homecoming Parade, a pick-up with all of us aboard shouting cheers for the NMSU Bulldogs! Founders Day found us together as a group of Sisters on the fourth, with a special rededication ceremony that evening. On the ninth and tenth, in conjunction with NMSU's Parents' Day, we celebrated our annual Founders Day with a banquet and program in the Student Union. Guests included Dr. Charles McClain, president of the University, and Mrs. Donald Crawford, our advisor, alums, and our parents. Our slide show was presented and was enjoyed by all. It conveyed to all the true meaning of our Sisterhood. Cynthia Masukawa, and Carole Rowland were nominated to Who's Who in American Colleges. They, along with Anita Moritz were nominated Top Tau from Alpha Sigma Chapter. Special social functions included a mixer with the Veteran's Club on November seventh, a party with dates at the farm of Tami Krink on the second of N ovember, bunk-in parties for all the girls together, and a special Halloween party with costumes. Panhellenic activities included a picnic on the eighth of October, and a Christmas party on the eleventh of December, at which our Panhellenic Secret Pals were revealed. Caramelled apples and hand made crafts were our main financial projects. We also participated in the Panhellenic bake sale. We again went back to the Kirksville Diagnostic Clinic to visit with the children. Christmas came this year with special ANCHOR

treats for all. On Saturday, December fourteenth, the sorority had its own gift exchange early in the afternoon; later, there was a semi-formal Christmas party at the home of an Alum here in Kirksville, followed by an after party out at the lake at t he Shelter Building. Lucy Morse

Alpha Taus Build Up The Treasury As usual the fall semester at Edinboro State College is a very busy time. Our first activity was a rush party entitled, "Let's go to the Hop." This year we sponsored sister Portia Walters for Homecoming Queen. We were assisted by Sigma Chi Delta and Centennial Hall. We also welcomed Amy Comeron to the sorority. After Homecoming we held several successful raffles, two roundtrip bus tickets to Pittsburgh and a 50-50. At the same time we had two bakesales and a shoeshine. Founders Day was celebrated on Sunday, November 3rd with a dinner at the Pizza Pub, followed by movies. A good time was had by all. Our final activity of the semester was a semi-formal dinner dance at the Villa Roma in Edinboro. Entertainment was provided by sweetheart Michael Pazdyk. After a one month Christmas break the Alpha Taus are looking forward to a very successful spring semester. Harriett S. Kisilinsky §<Q>.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,.q,§ §

Alpha Phis Rush Into Fall The Alpha Phi chapter at West Chester State College in West Chester, Pa., returned to prepare for fall rush after a relaxing summer and memories of their summer get together at the shore. Rush brought our sisters into a closer bond of sisterhood. With two teas on September 23 and 30, we were proud to pin-pledge nine new pledges. A pledge party was held in honor of the sisters, where after putting on their skit, everyone enjoyed cake and punch and had a good time. Halloween brought the sisters together for a party for the pledges. After trickor-treating on campus, the pledges returned with their goodies to dunk for apples. We also had two social parties this semester. The first one was with Theta Chi on October 19. Our last one was with Sigma Tau Gamma on November 15. This party was a hayride, and everyone had a lot of fun. The Alpha Phis also hosted our second annual Parents Day. The weather was perfect for the WCSC vs. Kutztown game. Afterwards, there was a buffet luncheon. Everyone had a good time, and we are looking forward to entertaining our parents again next year. Homecoming was another highlight of this semester with one of our sisters, Diane Schettone, up for homecoming queen. Founders Day, celebrating the sorority's seventy-fifth anniversary, saw the sisters enjoying themselves at a luncheon at the Conestoga Inn in Bryn Mawr. We put on a skit depicting the Founding Sisters writing the creed. Another important aspect of sorority life is service to others. The few days be30

fore Thanksgiving found the Alpha Phis collecting pennies in the dorms and cafeteria for the Salvation Anny. Another project of ours that is still continuing is collecting coupons for a kidney machine. We are looking forward to next semester, and anticipate rush, our Yellow Rose formal, and Greek Weekend. Pamela Pearce

Beta Beta On the Move Once again Beta Beta has been moved! As a money making project next semester we are considering hiring ourselves out as professional movers. We have had quite a bit of experience! Seriously, we have moved to the last of our temporary homes and the first promised permanent one. Furnishings are once again shaping up. We are sorry to have to announce that Mrs. Harry C. Durney has resigned as our advisor, technically. Mrs. Durney has been with us so long we will not know what to do without her. She is in very close contact with us and hopefully will continue to be so. Mrs. Durney, thank you for helping us in every way you knew and most important of all, thank you for teaching us that the more you give the more you have. Mrs. Theodore F . Locke has stepped in to take over where Mrs. Durney left off. This year, with our moving and the many conferences with the college administration, Mrs. Locke has been our salvation. It has been a rough transition for Beta Beta and Mrs. Locke has been much more than a friend and advisor. She is a sister in every sense of the word. We have all learned a little more about si terhood from both Mrs. Locke and Mrs. Durney. December saw us welcoming eight new sisters initiated on Friday, December 13 1974. We had a one for one ru h . n HOR

sister to one pledge. All of these girls were fantasti c during their pledge period. Initiation placed some of the sisters in awed silence and others in a spectacular combination of tears and laughter. The following sisters will be graduating in May of this year : Deborah Lashendock, Alycia Mallon, Linda McHorney, Terry McKissick and Ruth Schafft . Good luck in the world out there! Deborah and Ruth will be changing their names in June, 1975. We wish for them the best of married life. Alycia Sheila Mallon

homecoming was the 30's and 40's, and our float was " A Salute to M.G .M." We were all very proud t hat day, not only of our float, but of our lovely homecoming queen candidate, Diane Houser. We celebrated Founders Day on Nov. 3, wit h a dinner at t he Copper Kettle in Chambersburg. It was really nice to have our pledges join with us in remembering how Alpha Sigma Tau came about. For our social service project we visited t he Episcopal old age home. We had a very pleasant evening singing songs and chatting with t hem, and it gave us a very special feeling to know that we were bringing some happiness into t he lives of others. Patti Seifried

The Beta Epsilon Chapter returned to Shippensburg State College after a long summer to hear some exciting news from the convention . Our Adviser, Mrs. P ye, was elected president of Delta District, and our convention candidate, Diane McGaha placed first runner-up in the queen contest. We're very proud of them both. We celebrated Upperclassmen Parents' Day by having a tea social. It was really nice having all the parents meet each other. We had very successful formal and informal rushers. In between the two we had a rush party with Kappa Sigma Fraternity. The theme for our informal rush was "Taus under the Big Top." The sisters all dressed as animals, and the rushees came as clowns. Through it all we got ten fantastic pledges. During pledging we had exhange days with Sigma Tau Gamma, Sigma Pi, Theta Chi and Kappa Sigma Fraternities. Sigma Tau Gamma gave us a Halloween party after our exchange day; everyone had loads of fun dressing up for the affair. Our homecoming float took first place in the class B division. The theme for

The Beta Zeta Chapter at t he University of Alabama in Birmingham returned to t he campus wit h expectancy and promises filling every sister. A very successful bake sale followed a fun spend-thenight party during registration. We also got to help students with class problems. T wo enjoyable rush parties allowed us to meet nineteen lovely pledges. A zodiac party entitled "No Matter What Sign You Are" and "AST is a Special Way of Feeling" were entertaining and heart warming. Our new initiates are the joy of t he chapter. They reached their goal of one hundred dollars for Pine Mountain Settlement School. They also staged a very different kind of fund-raising activity called a "Slave Auction." The sales were limited to t he fraternities on the campu wit h t he girls working for a set number of hours doing small chores. The pledge assisted in every aspect of the sorority' social fu nctions and some busines acti -


ities. Congratulations to the pledges on a wonderful pledgeship. Their pin pledging was highlighted by a visit from Mrs. Mary Charles Ashby. Mrs. Ashby offered us constructive criticism with love and points to strengthen the chapter. Beta Zeta is eagerly awaiting her next visit and hope it will be very soon. Our chapter participated in a fierce competition for the Football trophy in lntermurals. The team, under the leadership of Lynne Townsend, played marvelously, with enthusiasm, and with a good time in mind. Our Social Service Chairman, Bonnje Wells, received information concerning a blood drive which we helped publicize. Sisters also aided in supplementing the refreshments for exceptional children in the neighborhood during their Halloween Party. We had some donations for toys in for a "Go Fish" game.

Swinging Into 'Things Are The Beta Etas Summer quarter at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville brought much excitement for many of our sisters. Debbie Welborn and Marty Heigmeister traveled to Europe for four weeks with the university's Internationally known Concert Chorale. The group won first place in their competition against other chorale groups all over the world. After their performances they were asked to appear in Washington, D. C. to perform again. Of course t he talent of our sisters Debbie and Marty is what made the performances so successful! Three of our most recent chapter graduate , Karen Beckman, Pat O'Rourke, and Viki Reeves, al o pent an unforget-


One of the most enjoyable points of the quarter was the Greek get-together in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Sisters, along with the pledges, attended a fun weekend of exploring the mountains around the resort town of Gatlinburg. It was a lot of fun and promoted relationshjps between the Greeks. The Founders Day Banquet was the best Beta Zeta has ever had. Our guest speaker was Mrs. Sybil King, the National President. It was held at the Birmingham Hyatt House with the music provided by Matchbox. All attended had a marvelous time and reljshed the everung. The name cards were made by our alumnae. The pledges had food catered into the banquet for the dance. Congratulations go to our sister Connie Smith who was married December 21. Stephanje Konstant became engaged. Good luck to both of these girls. Susan Vogt

able summer traveling throughout Europe for nine weeks. The highlight of the summer was when we attended the national convention held in Detroit. Debbie Welborn, our president, represented the chapter and Chris Weindel, Historian, represented our chapter as Beta Eta queen. We won third place in appearance and organization of our scrapbook and we received very honorable recognition in our rush activities. It's great to know our hard work and preparation were recognized. Fall quarter came to a swinging start when we held a bowling and taffy-pulling party for our rushees. Our pro perities brought us seven enthusia tic members of the Iota pledge class. Besides the various fundraising activities we had a hay ride, we cheered our S.I.U. Cougar occer team to victory against St. Louis University's Bilikens, which was held at St. Louis Bu ch Memorial Stadium, we enjo ed a hou ewarming party, Chri tma party and variou cultural programs which all proved to be very ucce ful and worthwhile.



The highlight of the quarter was our participation in the annual "Toys for Tots" campaign for needy children in our area. The 1974 Swing-a-Than was held in conjunction with KSD Radio and the Marine Corps, along with the Beta Etas and Pi chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau and Sigma Pi Fraternity from St. Louis University and University of Missouri at St. Louis. The swingers kept the swing moving six days straight while donaters contributed new or like new toys to this all-out campaign. We hope this year's endeavors will be as successful and enjoyable as last year. With the new year approaching we hope that 1975 can be just as fulfilling as the past. We hope that our sisterhood will always preserve and remain faithful to all the ideals of Alpha Sigma Tau. Sharon Heine

N ew Ventures Spark Program Inspiration from the 75th National Convention carried over in planning activities for the year. Under the able leadership of President Ladene Schoen, the calendar of meetings was determined, hostesses selected, and programs established. Emphasis was on local collegiate chapter support, social service, and alumnae chapter expansion. September's planning meeting " Getting Down to Business" reviewed the convention highlights and congratulated previous officers for winning the Efficiency Award. It also renewed the determination of new officers to gain another award for this year. Plans were made for the children's Hallowe'en party, a fund raising event for social service purposes. This first time venture was successful enough to warrant planning another for the next year. Cooperation from other Detroit alumnae was evident in the succes of thi project.

"Old Timers" Assist at Fiesta The fall rush season was a treat not only for the collegiates and rushees, but for the "Old Timers" of Alpha Sigma Chapter, too. As the formal parties rolled around, you could hear collegiates and alums singing songs, practicing skits, and gathering "goodies" for the Fiesta themed event. It was an unforgettable experience for "All Of Us" . Homecoming means not only reuniting with old college friends and sisters, but also meeting new sis's too. It was really great to meet and talk with everyone at the Homecoming Breakfast that weekend. More good news was announced. The stock will be busy this spring visiting Ruth Miller and Joyce Sarvies.

Mid-summer kept us busy with a Tupperware gathering; annual family picnic on Lake Ponchartrain with barbecuing, playing games and cooling off with homemade chocolate ice cream and watermelon; along with a rush workshop at Fraternity Lodge near Hammond. In September we shared time with our Phi sisters in preparing Fall Rush. During our September and October meetings we discussed our goal, to form a closer bond with actives and alumnae. We also increased our membership by three. Each month a small gift is raffled to add to the convention fund. Recipe cards and stationery were also sold to help our treasury. A discussion took place on how we can visit local colleges to initiate an active chapter. Marcia Barr reported on Convention and announced that Camille Gennaro was presented the Ada A. Norton Alumnae Award. Since last September our Sorority has taken on a new look with the stork delivering seven new babies and two more on the way.

Scholarship A wards Continue The Norfolk Area Alumnae Chapter began its year with a dessert meeting at the home of Linda Johnson. We discussed plans for the coming year such as a Tupperware party to help our Scholarship Fund and the forthcoming Founders Day. In October we gathered together for a Tupperware party and our first night meeting. This was a change from our monthly Saturday meetings and it was decided we would alternate meetings between Saturdays and night meetings. November brought us together for our Founders Day luncheon. Again we employed a new idea. Each member brought a covered dish to the home of Anna Margaret Rhodes and exchanged the recipe for the dishes with each member. After we all enjoyed the delicious food, Candlelight Service was held to honor our Founders Day. As an alumnae chapter we like to keep in contact with the collegiate chapter$ in our state. For the past two years we have offered a scholarship award to the chapter with the highest average. This past year we were pleased to award Zeta Tau Chapter of Longwood College, Farmville, Virginia twenty-five dollars for the highest average. Again this fall we plan to offer the scholarship award to the collegiate chapters. Alumnae families are on the increa e with four births since June, 1974. The proud mothers are Beth Harman, Linda


Johnson, and Sandra DeForas who all have new daughters and Robbie Cool with her new son. The coming year promises to keep us very busy. We anticipate visits to Holiday House, a home for emotional disturbed children, and favors for the area hospitals will be made by members. Socials for members and their husbands are in the planning and a variety of other events are in the offing. Cynthia Brouwer Cross

~Pine Bluff . .. Enjoying Fellowship During the meeting in May the girls decided not to meet during the summer months. After a nice vacation (since most of us are teachers), we met in September to plan the months ahead. As a money-making project in October, we pooled together our household items and held a rummage sale at the home of Judy Jones. As a charity project in November, we made wooden plaques for boys and vases of flowers for girls at Jefferson Hospital during the Thanksgiving season. Everyone brought scissors and glue to J o Ellen Stanfield's house for the project. Our December meeting was most enjoyable. The Sorority treated us to steaks at the Colonial Steak House. Everyone looked lovely in their holiday dresses. There was an exchange of gifts and secret pals from the previous year were revealed. Many were surprised! We were joined with a new sister this year. J o Murray was initiated into our Chapter at the home of Ginger Spann. Officers for this year are as follows: President Abigale Curry, Vice President Brenda Jones, Recording Secretary Ginger Spann, Corresponding Secretary Nancy Ward, Treasurer Jo ~lien St~n足 field, Chaplain Louann Patnck, ParhaANCHOR

mentarian Joyce Calhoun, Historian Judy Jones, and Editor Phyllis Shockley. We had two tragedies among our sisters this year. J o Ellen Stanfield almost lost her husband when he was struck by lightning, and parts of Judy Jones' home were lost in a fire . Through financial help, love of sisters, and moral support, everything turned out fine. Even though we have remained small in number, each and everyone has enjoyed our time spent in the Pine Bluff Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau. Phyllis Shockley

Alumnae Chapter Pat Linton was hostess for our first meeting of the fall. Our time was spent in general planning and adopting a calendar for the year. Karen Stear gave a demonstration of cosmetics which she sell . "Faraway Places" beckoned us to Virginia Richter's home in October. Members brought slides gleaned from their (or someone else's) travels abroad. Our travelogue took us to Hawaii, Japan, Vietnam, Greece, Norway, Spain, Portugal and many other places. In observance of Founders Day in ovember, we met again at the home of Pat Linton for a luncheon. We enjoyed salads and desserts which members brought. At the conclusion of the luncheon the candle lighting service and a ceremony of rededication were held. At our December meeting in Sharon Hylton's home we had a cookie exchan ge and shared ideas for making Chri t ma decorations. In the spirit of giving at Christmas time, we collected toys for Children's Hospital. A craft night is planned for January. Polly Mash Magee

Director Expands Membership Our two goals this year are to strengthen alumnae ties with area collegiate chapters and to strengthen our local alumnae membership. In late August we held a backyard social at the home of Patti Bliley for alumnae and collegiate members from the Richmond area. The event was a great success. Old friendships were renewed, new ones were made; but most of all, we enjoyed meeting over twenty-five sisters from the Alpha Lambda and Zeta Tau chapters who had accepted our invitation. This year we made teddy bears as rush favors for Alpha Lambda's "Sleepy Time Tau" party. Esther Powell, membership director led an extensive campaign to update ou; local membership files. Through phone calls and letters she compiled a list of interested alum11ae and sent them a schedule of our programs for the year. Five new alumnae attended the summer social and September meeting. Elain Alexander Psi and JoAnne Marshall, Alpha La~bda' were initiated at the November Founder~ Day Banquet. Eight other new alumnae also attended the banquet. The highlight of the banquet was the announcement that the RichmondPetersburg Alumnae Chapter was one of nin~ in the n~tion to be awarded a 100 % efficiency ratmg by Alpha Sigma Tau.

Plans for the yea r were made with our new president, Faye Pleasants. We had the happy event of presenting one of our members, Vicky Trumbower, with a baby gift. In October, we had a most interesting meeting. A member of the staff of the Mental Health Society presented a program on the emotionally disturbed child. Later in the month we held a bake sale, the proceeds of which will go to our national project for the emotionally disturbed child. Our Founders Day luncheon was a very nice event held at the Red Lion Restaurant on the first Saturday in November. Our sisters are saddened now by the loss of one of our sisters, Carole Carroll, who died as a result of an auto accident November 14. Carole served our chapter as president last year. She was a very active person, teaching in the public schools of Roanoke County, and serving ANCHOR

as teacher-supervisor in the Shedd Program in Roanoke which is a program for children with learning difficulties. She also taught Sunday School. She will be missed by so many people and most especially by her sisters in AST. Martha Crute


Shepherdstown ...

Program Highlights Anniversary The memories of summer were still in the minds and on the lips of Shepherdstown Alumnae, collegiates, and members of t heir families as they gathered at Morgans Grove Park in September for a picnic. Ideas and plans for the coming year were discussed and several more joint meetings were planned. Members came in costume to the Halloween Party at Genevieve Pitzer's home in October. Members agreed to donate baked goods to the collegiates booth on Homecoming Day at Shepherd College. Those attending t he National Convention in Detroit brought everyone up to date on Sorority happenings . " Potpourri 75" was the theme as we gathered for our Founders Day Banquet, our culminating event celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the founding of the Sorority. Miss Barbara Maxwell wa in charge of the program. She traced the history of the Sorority from its founding in Michigan, the beginnings at Shepherd College and the establishing of our Alumnae Chapter. She recalled some of the highlights and also little known facts affecting the progress of the Sorority on campus. Anna Mary Willingham and Marlyn Butts, collegiates, modeled clothing from the 50's and then to the change of fa hions on campus of the 70's. Song were su ng from the period, all having been written by Chi members over the ear . Collegiates Barbara Franklin and Su an


Tabler provided accompaniment on guitar. Miss Ruth Seibert reminisced by way of slides and memories were stirred as members leafed through scrapbooks, photographs and other memorabilia collected over the years. Mrs. Mary Charles Ashby, national director of collegiate chapters, climaxed the celebration by para-phrasing Lincoln's Gettysburg Address as it pertains to the Sorority. Mary Charles is a graduate of Shepherd College. Miss Seibert conducted the impressive Candlelighting Ceremony. We were pleased to have as our special guests Mrs . Charles Ashby; Mrs. Stephen Pye, Delta District vice-president; Dr. Sara Cree, Professor Emerita of Shepherd College and collegiate adviser; Mrs. Howard Carper, adviser to Chi Chapter; Dr. Katherine Frescoln, patroness and Shepherd professor; and Miss Molly Borwick, former dean of women at Shepherd. We are looking forward to our Christmas party at Vicki Shockey's and our spring and summer activities. Dorothy Mason LeFevre

~St.louis ...

arrival of the Channel 5 Mini-Camera Crew for some interviews. Although few of us got home in time to make the 10 o'clock broadcast we were advised that, in addition to the interviews, Alpha Sigma Tau's 75th Anniversary Cake, complete with crest provided by the Edwardsville members, was also featured. It was a traditional birthday party with gifts for the collegiate chapters, Candlelighting Ceremony, special awards, birthday cake and ice cream . The Christmas Luncheon was held at the Sappington Hou e Barn followed by a tour of the historical home. We were especially happy to have Meredith Hinshaw back in town for the special occasion. The theatre party, sponsored annually to raise money for our local social service project is also becoming a tradition. The profits from this venture are used to provide milk and sweet treats to classes for emotionally disturbed children in the St. Louis Public Schools.

Tradition Conscious!!

Honors Charter Member

After the traditional luncheon in June at Alice Dunlop's home most of the St. Louis Alumus scattered for various vacation spots while a few of us settled down to Convention plans. Our first fall meeting, the traditional pot-luck supper attracted a good crowd, with plenty of food, fun conversation and a convention review through movies taken by Pat and Harold Hoffelder. The fact that our hostess, Maxine Graftage, had undergone surgery that day was a shock but Steve and Karen performed as perfect host and hostess in typical Graftage tradition. We were delighted to have members of the Edwardsville Alumnae Chapter and Beta Eta Collegiates help us plan a pecial Founders Day Banquet. Seventy four members were pleasantly surprised by the

Meetings, officers, projects, picnics, and parties have filled alumnae members with "precious moments to remember." The Slippery Rock Alumnae Chapter has elected new officers for the coming year at a business meeting held after the second annual H omecoming Tea at North Hall Lounge, Slippery Rock State College . Future meetings and social service projects were discussed. Mrs. Timothy O'Leary will serve as the chapter's President. Other officers for the coming year are Mrs. Robert Hackman (Hope Patterson) , Vice President; Regina Mancuso, Corresponding Secretary; Carol Sprague, Historian路 orma Reinhard Membership Chairman, and reelected were Mr . James Rov. e (I im Newingham) , Trea urer; Kath Mayhan,



Editor; and Marty Piontek, Chaplain. Mrs. Patrick Sullivan, founding member of the Alpha Pi Chapter, was the special guest at the Homecoming Tea. Congratulations are definitely in order to one of our alumnae members, Joanne Genova, who will serve as District President. This summer the alumnae and collegiates from Slippery Rock invaded Morraine State Park for a picnic and a general gossip session. The wine tasting party on December 14 at the home of Norma Reinhard was simply a gala evening. Any former sister interested in joining the alumnae chapter should contact Miss Norma Reinhard, 522 South Main St., Slippery Rock, Pa. 16027. We're a year older now, and ready to meet more challenges. Kathy Mayhan

~ West Chester... Alumnae Receive Charter The West Chester Alumane were officially installed as a chartered member into the National Alumnae at our Founders Day celebration on November 9, 1974. The Alpha Phi collegiate chapter hosted a luncheon held at the Conestoga Inn in Bryn Mawr with the West Chester, Widener, Norristown, Wilmington, and Philadelphia alums in attendance along with the Beta Beta collegiate chapter. Among those present were Linda Pye, District President; and Maxine Stevens, National Alumnae Chairman who installed our new alum chapter. Ms. Stevens spoke on the relationships to be founded among both alums and collegiates to help us better understand our responsibilities to each other. Our calendar for 1975 includes making stuffed animals for Childrens' Hospital as a service project, and a roller skating party for social along with plans for working with the collegiate chapter. ANCHOR

With the installation of our new chapter, we feel the foundation has been sel for us to work with our nei ghboring collegiate chapters as well as perpetuate t he friend ships and ideals that mean AST. Linda Troilo

~ Tri-City ... Sippin' to Slidin' . Sippin' cider at Eileen Hamilton's were six sisters eager to get t he year planned for Tri-City Alums. Big decision making isn't just restricted to big businesses! An October plan found us combing ropes, would you believe. Under the able leadership of Marilyn Halstead, these ropes became darling dolls. Originally intended to be a money-maker, we all became "attached" and so now are looking for other ways to increase our treasury. Forbidden City was the location of our Founders Day luncheon, Chinese style. Chopsticks and chatter! Plans were made for a new local social service project. Vests with various types of fasteners were made and donated to t he Child Guidance Clinic's pre-school children. The Fun Club, our Y.W.C.A. friend and former social service project, has not been forsaken. At our children's Christmas party, a cookie collection was gathered for the club. Our honored guests t hi day were our own children and St. Nick himself. Moms and kidlets all donned in warm duds are sure to be seen headin g to Roni Bailey's house that day, not to mention that sleigh with eight tiny reindeer! Happy sledding to all in '75!

Creative Projects Promote Learning Our year has begun with a Whirl! As it continues, it promises to be a delightful, rewarding experience for us all. The first event was the lovely wedding of Charlotte Douglas to Julian Floyd. Several Taus, some with their spouses, were present to share in a very special moment of happiness. T he response to our September Pot Luck Dinner was terrific! Dottie Haramis and Cathy Schreiner acted as hostesses to thirty-two members and guests. The food was so fantastic we have decided on a recipe exchange at our next pot luck. T he special highlight at the September meeting was t he installation of Beth James as Vice-President of Epsilon District. We are pleased to have Beth in her new role. In October we featured our social service project. Betty Sue Glaeser opened her home to us along with our paper, cloth, glue, buttons, acorns, etc. These pieces all " flew" during the evening and ended up being parts of worthwhile educational items to be used by students with various types of learning problems. We have a special tie to the students who use these projects. Ellie Cramer has been able to know many of them by substituting in their class as "teacher for the day" . Having this close tie adds meaning to our project. Our Founders Day was "extra-special" this year. Twenty-two of us enjoyed din ner at the Seaport Inn, a favorite gathering spot of sea captains long ago in Old Town Alexandria. It was especially meaningful because Alexandria began the bicentennial celebration this year, commemorating several special events begun by the founding Scots' fathers. Our speaker was a member of the National


Bicentennial Committee who shared with us several programs being featured throughout the United States. It is really exciting to think of the 1976 celebration drawing so close to us all. She left us thinking of what we can do to make 1976 a really memorable, worthwhile celebration. What an opportunity! A bicentennial celebration! We are looking forward to the remainder of our year, hoping for the addition of new members and the sharing of many more experiences. Dottie Haramis

~ Youngstown ... A ctivities Aid Local Chapter The Youngstown Alumnae has recently added to its membership. This past summer a beautiful ceremony was performed at which Carolyn Pasco and Diane Kalasky were installed as alumnae. The Alumnae have been very concerned with the local chapter. Due to their great concern, many of them met with Mrs. King and Barbara Trainer during their recent visit. During the fall quarter, the Alumnae were busy working with the Alpha Rho Chapter in preparing for rush. Mary Ann Koontz donated slides of past activities. Also active during rush were Mary Ellen Willmitch, Judy Nivert, Wendy Sammarone, Debbie Eckonrode, Cathie Carnie, and Diane Kalasky. Diane Kalasky

~Ypsilanti足 Ann Arbor ... Marathon Anniversary Celebrations It's not often an organization i f rtu-


nate enough to be able to celebrate a diamond jubilee and the Ypsilanti-Ann Arbor Alumnae Chapter is taking every opportunity to renew our bonds and celebrate our birthday. It was here in Ypsilanti in November of 1899 that Alpha Sigma Tau was founded. Again on November 2, 1974, we were especially proud to be participants along with other Alpha Sigma Tau Chapters in celebrating our 75th anniversary at Win Schuler's Restaurant in Ann Arbor. We had a very nice turnout for our celebration and also received some very good wishes through correspondence from those who were unable to attend. It was apparent to see why Alpha Sigma Tau has endured seventy-five years of heritage as one could see and feel the spirit of a united and cooprative effort among the generations present as we rededicated ourselves, held our candles high, shared our birthday cake, and sang those memorable words of the "Fraternity Hymn". We were indeed proud to have many of our own Alpha people honored that day as well as at the Convention in Detroit. The videotape we saw at the luncheon and were able to discuss with Duwayne Martin and Loretta Roche from York Woods Center, the Children's Division of Ypsilanti State Hospital, was extremely helpful to use in giving us more insight into the problems of the emotionally disturbed child and also in showing how social organizations like Alpha Sigma Tau play a vital role in its programs. The Alumnae Chapter hosted a Christmas dessert for the collegiate girls on December 2 at the home of Joan Carpenter in Ann Arbor. This is our time to personally wish the girls happy holidays and to enjoy a purely social evening. On November 4 we gathered at Donna Stevens' home for a business meeting and held a small Christmas bazaar. Many went home with some very nice handmade items. Ann Gruber and her husband made arrangements for our members, husbands, and guests to have a pot luck supper and enjoy a wine tasting demonstration at their clubhouse on October 26th. We saw ANCHOR

a film about the wine industry which vividly showed the grape from vine to wine and what types of wine to serve with what foods. The program was brought to us by Mr. David Shipman from Thompson Beverage Company who demonstrated Gallo and Christian Brothers wine. Marilyn Christy opened her home in October as we held a Tupperware party to raise funds to set aside for our year's projects. Even our business meeting held in September at the home of Joan Meaker gave us a reason to celebrate as we discussed the past 75th Anniversary Convention held in Detroit in August. We had a lot of fun at the meetings and thoroughly enjoyed the Queen's Luncheon we hosted as well as the Formal Banquet. Our Chapter was extremely pleased to have received awards for efficiency, and most new members. Martha Belknap was honored with the coveted Ada Norton Award. Joan Carpenter and Elaine Habel received C. U. Staehle Awards; Wanda Bates was honored as a building block, past national officer, Alpha Advisor, and alumnae representative Sharon Tucker now is our new Alpha adviser. We are extremely proud of these girls and feel we have excellent reasons for continuing our anniversary celebration. Joyce Berg LIMITED SUPPLY AVAILABLE

Young and Old Remembered

~ Wilmington ...

Bluefield Alumnae Chapter reactivated September 2, 1974 after being inactive for a year. September meeting was a business meeting of reorganization and electing officers and committee appointments. We met with President Marcella Dee Whitlock. Everyone was really happy to be back together and a catch up session was enjoyed by all. We have two projects going for this year. We sent books, clothing, and supplies to the Exceptional School in Tazewell County, Virginia . Another project is to remember a shut-in each month by bringing little packages for a sunshine basket. T he October meeting was with Lorane Jarrett. We t ruly enjoyed t he evening around her fireplace visiting after t he meeting. In November, we celebrated Founders Day with the collegiates and the Princeton Athens Alums at a Sunday afternoon banquet. T he collegiates had the Rededication Service for t he alumnae. It was like the one held at convention, most impressive. I n December, a P itch In dinner was held at Joyce Buchanan's. Everyone en_ioyed a tour of Joyce's lovely new home. We took small gifts and wrapped them

One of the highlights of 1974 for Wilmington area alums was the party we cohosted with Newark alums of Kappa Delta for the Alpha Chi Omegas. For an unusual touch, our refreshments consisted of a large array of hors d'oeuvres brought by each member of the hostess sororities. Sara Jane Tupin led us in a series of " mixer games". In May, we enjoyed a slide show tour of Spain. Florence Borgnis was our photographer and guide. Congratulations to Joan Vannatta and Bette Reed who each gave birth to future "Taus" in May and August respectively. Kathy Paulson, Alpha Kappa, Claire Smith, Beta Beta, and Elizabeth Waid, Zeta Tau, are new to our group this year. We hope that they will all be able to attend the same meeting sometime. Because of her husband's transfer, Bette Reed and family moved to the Baltimore area . Three of us drove up to the Conestoga Mill Restaurant in Bryn Mawr, Pa., to celebrate Founders Day with alums from P hiladelphia, Westchester, and Norristown . We enjoyed the skit by Alpha Phi girls and the singing by the Beta Betas. It was an honor to have a national officer, Maxine Stevens, as our speaker. Congratulations to the Philadelphia alums for arranging a lovely afternoon . Sheila M cBride

Message from Barb Trainer

Barbara L. Trainer , Alpha Kappa '74 Chapter Counselor. 1974-75

Dear Alpha Sigma Tau Sisters, It is inconceivable that almost an entire school year has gotten away from me. My speedometer is 20 miles short of 10,000 miles, my suitcases practically walk themselves to the trunk of my VW, and the coke stains and folds in my "Road Atlas" nearly make picking my way across the U. S . impossible. But, it has been a GREAT year! It began unofficially with the arrival from Central Office of an enormous box of materials- report forms, constitutions, pledge manuals and expense forms. My first thought was, "How can I possibly learn all of this before convention?" Convention came and went and so did the first couple of months of my job before I really began to grasp the majority of the material. But the more I learned and the more ASTs I came to know, the more interesting the year became and the more AST came to mean. Convention was a terrific, wonderful, awesome week. I was so busy I really didn 't have time to absorb as much as I could, but felt I would never have the understanding and knowledge that so many of the members of the National Council and National Staff had.


You were all so tremendously great during that week. You, who stayed up until 3:00 a.m. and then were up and around at dawn again ... for our benefit alone! Thinking of ways to help us have a meaningful, worthwhile, and memorable experience as Alpha Sigma Taus. I cann ot express how much it means to me to work and be associated with so many people who care so much! ! Aside from all your meetings, you still had time to do such nice things for one another and for me: the spice braids for the opening session, an afternoon off when we really needed it, and taking the time to cheerfully answer questions and explain things to me that I really should have known. Once convention was over and I had "recuperated", I started out on my journeys. I left Virginia thinking I would be en the road and at home on alternate weeks. I very soon found out that I would "see the country" before I got back to Virginia!! So much of the country, so many beautiful sunsets! Chapter counseling or fieldwork for AST has the unique nature of being everchanging and there is 'never a dull moment' . It called for me to develop a willingness to be very, very flexible and independent. For that, I am really appreciative to all of you. It is normal that my schedule may change at least three times in one week from what I had originally planned it to be; or to have the 'opportunity' to try such new things as " chicken fried steak", or '1001 ways to fix spaghetti'. In all seriousness, it was tremendous for me! The unique nature of this job has it humorous side also. I learned to accept gracefully the retaliation of a collegiate who had been hit by one of my nowball . By gracefully, I mean I landed in th snow after being ho ed o er a hedg Or I found that one doe, not r ally h \


to h_ave MONEY in Youngstown, Ohio; but If one needed it she should send home for these things : 1) Birth Certificate 2) Social Security Number 3) Car Registration Number 4) Graduation date from Nursery School 5) Serial No. on one's bicycle!! It has b~en so fascinating to see the ~ountry this year; but more importantly, It has been such a 'far out' experience meeting YOU. Each of you has been so great to me in your own way. The flowers, scngs, parties, and relaxing times have meant so much to me; but your improvement, and interest have meant the most. I guess a remark from Mrs. King's address at convention is the guideline in my work with you and I want you to know that this is what I feel about AST and hope for you! " Bite off more than you can chew; Then chew it! Plan for more than you can do; Then do it! Point your arrow at a star; Then take good aim and there you are! Arrange for more than you can spare; Then spare it! Take on more than you can bear; Then bear it! Plan your castle in the air; Then build a ship to take you there!" President's Address, 1974 Convention, during her term as National President originally from Mrs . Haswell E. Staehle This year has been a beautiful and growing experience for me and I want you all to know how very, very much you mean, and will continue to mean to me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for, and been to me. Extra special thanks to Sybil for her open-hearted kindness and warmth. Her helpfulness and understanding have been a great strength and joy to me. She has been the best "boss" I could ever have had. I just want to say thanks for being so dear!! With much affection and gratitude, Barbara Trainer, Alpha Kappa Chapter Counselor, 1974-75 ANCHOR

Reply to Barb's Message Those members of the National Staff who have_ had the pleasure of working closely w1th Barbara since convention have some recommendations for any future 'boss' she may encounter. A delightful sense of humor sustains her through several diffi cult situations ... s~ch as being stranded in Youngstown With no money, no credit. She is completely reliable and dependable to the point of driving fifty- six miles th~ough snow and sleet to keep an appomtment with a collegiate group. She can add, subtract, write and spell. Reports are prepared neatly, accurately and promptly, usually accompanied by a cheery note to brighten the day. . Her counseling and reports have proVIded the national officers with in-depth observations of her contemporaries in terms that we could understand and we hope she has, in turn, given the collegiate members a favorable image of the national family. She has served as a delightfully refreshing bridge across any generation gap. We are indebted to her family, her Alpha Kappa Chapter Advisers and sorority sisters for providing a background of experiences which have made her a charming companion. She can spend an entire afternoon with a nearly senior citizen without once making her feel like a senior citizen. In spite of the coke-stained atlas she has a fantasti c sense of direction ... finding her way across town with direction that included non-existent hi ghway numbers. We sincerely hope that any future employer will recognize her talents and capabilities and make full u e of her enthusiasm and energy. Wherever he goes she takes with her our sincere good wishes for continuous ucces and joy in living. She ha been a delightful addition to the National Staff ... we're proud to claim her as an Alpha Sigma Tau. Elizabeth Wilson Dire tor, Central Office
