chrlStL{S dreom come rrue Michigan Technological University is located in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula. The campus rests on the Keeweenaw Peninsula which looks into Lake Superior, the largest lake in the world. The University has an international reputation as being one of the finest engineering schools in the United States. It is also the home of the newest Alpha Sigma Tau colony-Beta Xi. Beta Xi colony was started by Christy Cutbill, a transfer student from Sigma Chapter at N. Y State College at Buffalo. When she left "Buff State," she promised her Sigma sisters that she would start an A:lT chapter at MTU. So, she did just that! After settling down in Houghton, home of Michigan Tech , Christy began the task of getting A:lT established on campus. Her first move was to write to Bobbie Nichols, then director of expansion. Miss Nichols, thrilled at the possibility of adding a new colony, paved the road by writing to Dean of Students Harold Meese, and then guided Christy in the right direction for attaining members and advisors. Meanwhile at a study weekend, Christy met three girls, Susan Weishaar, Jennifer Venia and Colleen Jones, who were enthusiastic about starting a new sorority on campus. They had been rushed by other sororities at MTU and could not decide upon any of them. Early in March as the new term began, Christy received a call from Jennifer who was anxious to form a sorority-A:lT. At the first "interest" meeting nine girls were present. By the end of three weeks , the group had increased to 25 girls strong. After searching diligently, Mrs. Robert 0 ' Dell, director of alumnae, could not find alumnae in the vicinity to become chapter advisors . So Christy began pursuit of faculty members and women from the community who co uld help. 'Mth little encouragement, Charan Bender, residence counselor at Wadsworth Hall (the largest dormitory in the U.S . ) volunteered to be chapter advisor and initiated Beta Xi's when they are installed.

After these mammoth accomplishments, Christy met with Dean Meese who requested a copy of the Constitution of Alpha Sigma Tau and a list of girls wanting to become A:lTs. Dean Meese soon announced he was pleased to grant Alpha Sigma Tau recognition on the Michigan Tech campus! Finally THE big weekend of April 25th had come. Miss Nichols arrived and reassured the girls that all would go smoothly. After little sleep on Friday night, would-be pledges arose on Saturday, nervous and anxious to join the ranks of Alpha Sigma Tau. They made it! After a memorable pledging ceremony, and hugs and tears-they finally made it. That afternoon, Beta Xi pledges were to participate in the Greek games on campus. Unfortunately a torrential downpour the evening before left the field a shallow, muddy lake. The official games were cancelled but the Beta Xi's became involved in a friendly, but muddy, battle of the Greeks. Finally, after the grime had been washed away and the fresh sparkling faces reappeared, the girls settled down to the more serious side of sisterhood. Miss Nichols conducted workshops on membership and the duties of officers. Since that momentous weekend Beta Xis have co-sponsored a "South Seas" party with Sigma Phi Epsilon; had a bake sale and a flower sale; hosted a party to meet other Greek officers; and participated in many other activities with the campus fraternities and sororities. During all the excitement, the new colony members found time for a social service project-making flowers for senior citizens at Cypress Manor, a local home for the elderly, on Mother 's Day. The Greek system is flourishing at Michigan Tech with fourteen fraternities. When Beta Xi Colony is installed, it will be the fourth sorority. But to all members of Alpha Sigma Tau the newest sisters will be first on campus . .. and Christy's dream will be fulfilled.

Of Emeralds, Gold and Pearls ... Candles ... The formal opening of the Twenty-third National Convention on Thursday evening was a memorable event which was highlighted by the National CouncU processional, a candlelight service, and the indelible , opening speech , "Each Sister a Treasure," by President Mrs. Thomas J. King, Jr. Mrs. King's inspirational message paralleled Alpha Sigma Tau to a naval fleet. "To keep afloat, we must launch forward," she emphasized, "goals, coupled with our beliefs depicted in the candle, stars, crown , book, yellow rose, and anchor to preserve for all times the ideals and traditions of each Alpha Sigma Tau which makes "each sister a treasure."

Among these goals named were: reactivation of inactive chapters; installation of five new alumnae chapters per year; greater participation in leadership workshops; establishment of a new national headquarters to meet the growth of the Sorority; for each chapter to pledge quota; increasing alumnae participation; and to maintain our unique characteristic of variety of membership. Ceremonials followed the opening session: sisters who passed away since Co nvention 1978 were remembered; and Jean Koerner was initiated by National CouncU into the Alpha Tau Chapter of IT. Following ceremonials, the National Council greeted alumnae and collegians as they departed to attend the informal parties, to relax, and to become reacquainted with old friends and make new ones.

National President, Mrs. King.

and Stars ... Friday July 4, was a real firecracker of a day. The morning and afternoon general sessions were marked by leadership workshops. Drs. Jim Watkins and Tim Gallineau of Stippery Rock State College presented examples and conducted exercises in values, needs, and goals of the individual and the Sorority. The Panhellenic Luncheon held in the Acquacade was a celebration of the twenty-six sororities joined together in the National Panhellenic Conference and the union of the fifty United States of America. Terry Dudley, chairman and hostess, introduced representatives Mrs. Lois Bosmary, Alpha Chi Omega; Mrs. Betty Rhule, Alpha Gamma Delta; Mrs. Maureen Leary, Alpha Omicron Pi; Mrs. Shelley HUton , Alpha Phi; Mrs. Louise Robinson, Alpha Xi Delta; Mrs.

Kathleen Bachman , Delta Delta Delta; Mrs. C. J. Arthur, Kappa Kappa Gamma ; Mrs. A. H. Peterson, Phi Mu; Mrs. Lois Finley, Sigma Kappa; and Mrs. Debbie Dobda, Theta Phi Alpha. Honored speaker was Theta Phi Alpha National President Mrs. James Green. Her message was an inspiration to uphold the ideals and meaning of AIT in sisterhood, to uphold the Greek spirit, and to "let each sorority be one with Panhellenic." The remainder of the day and evening was spent in alumnae and collegiate sessions during which members were informed about social service, convention, finances, and constitutional changes to be brought to the floor in the following general session.

Guest speaker at the NPC Luncheon was Mrs. James Green , Theta Phi Alpha National President. 4

Collegians present the mock rush party to members .

and Crowns ... Saturday morning was filled with an air of excitement as candidates, vying for the title of 1980 Convention Queen , prepared to meet the judges. Mary Jo Tooey, a most entertaining toastmistress and luncheon chairman, introduced the distinguished judges: Rose Rymarz, former Alpha Omicron at Clarion State College. Rose is Pubtic affairs director, co-hostess of WFFM Radio's "Morning Magazine," and newsperson. Chet Wade, reporter, for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette is a graduate of Penn State University. His duties include writing for the "Gazette," in particular, the North Hills section of the paper which appears on Thursday morning. THE ANCHOR

The third judge was John Lubarsky, an economic analyst for the city of Pittsburgh who has played an important role in Renaissance II, a rebuilding of the Station Square area and construction of the convention center. Mr. Lubarsky received an undergraduate degree from Duquesne University and his Master 's Degree from the University of Pittsburgh. More impressive than the qualifications of the judges were those of the candidates. The girls were chosen to represent their chapters not only for their physical beauty, but, more importantly, for their inner loveliness and accomplishments. The judges took a final look at the competitors as each girl introduced

herself and then announced the finalists . The finalists were given a question and provided an unrehearsed answer. The excitement peaked as Sandy Wentler, Beta Eta was named queen , Ivy Peterson, Alpha Kappa was named first runner-up, and Sandra Negins , Alpha Epsilon was named second runner-up. Where they found the time is a miracle, but collegians-between general sessions and workshops-planned a mock rush by NPC rules. The first party was an example .of an invitational; the second illustrated a rush party; and the third was representative of a preference party. (The party was given in the Aquacade following a poolside supper.) 5

and Books ... Several constitutional changes were made both in the National Constitution and the Collegiate Constitution. The most notable change in the National Constitution concerned the office of the National President. The Collegiate Constitution changes involved reducing the number of collegiate officers to ten and identifying the duties of Staff and Standing Committees. Increases were approved in both collegiate and alumnae dues. The formal banquet Sunday evening climaxed Convention activities. Mrs. William Bennett, Youngstown Alumnae chaired the dinner and served as toastmistress. Alpha Phi National Panhellenic Delegate and former

National President Mrs. Alexander Jones was guest speaker. She spoke on the development of the sorority system and its important role in the lives of college women, past and present. The traditional candlelighting with guests and presentation of awards ended the festivities.

and anchors ... At the final general session Monday morning, Convention Top Tau awards were presented to collegiate Diana Dubusson, Phi, and alumna Kathy C. Smitt, Beta Mu. After the installation of Council members and appointments to National Staff, the Twenty-third National Convention was officially adjourned.

\ National Council members attending convention were (front row from left) Mrs. Phipps, Mrs. King, Mrs. O' Dell, (second row) Mrs. McCrory, Mrs. Floyd, Miss Nichols, Miss Willmitch, Mrs. Scott, and Mrs. Forrester.

1980 Convention Queen Twenty-year-old Sandy Wentler is a junior at Southern Illinois University. She pledged the Beta Eta Chapter in Fall of 1978. As an A~T she has been music chairman and chaplain. Sandy presently serves her chapter as president, housing-ritual chairman and fraternity-sorority conference delegate. She has made the dean's list each term while at school. Sandy takes time from her major in business administration to enjoy embroidery, and various crafts. For her final question in the pageant, Miss Wentler was asked, "As an experienced day-care worker, what advice would you give anyone dealing with children?" Her reply, which won the hearts of the judges and luncheon guests was, "One needs to be very patient and understanding, but also firm . Children are the jewels of life and are, in fact, little peope. I was amazed to find just how adult-like they are . Listen to what children say and try to understand the meaning behind what they've said ... try to get down on their level and communicate with them . It takes a lot of time, effort, and, most of all, love." 6

profile: Bobbie Nichols Outstanding Young Woman of America Bobbie Nichols, Alternate NPC Delegate, was named as an Outstanding Young Woman of America. Bobbie felt her selection to the honored tist of women was largely due to her successful term as Director of Expansion. Since her initiation at the 1968 National Convention in New Orleans, Bobbie served the Alpha Gamma Chapter (Henderson) as sorority growth & development chairman, rush chairman , and president. She was a delegate to the Henderson State Pan hellenic Council and was Af Chapter delegate to the 1970 Convention in Toronto, Canada. Bobbie was president of the Liitle Rock, Arkansas Chapter and, in 1974, was AST Area Alumnae Representative. As NPC Alternate Delegate, Bobbie is an Area Advisor for Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming. As an employee of Stephens, Inc. (investment bankers), in Little Rock, Bobbie works as a municipal trading assistant. With all the above accomplishments you'd think Bobbie wouldn' t have a spare minute. But she is one of those busy, busy people who can always manage to squeeze in one more activity. It's a good thing Bobbie had some spare time because she was able to design the official AST National Rag. The flag , shown below, was selected from several designs at this summer's National Convention.

Highlights of the first 50 years

Omicron Cha pter was the fiftee nth cha pter to appear in Alpha Sigma Tau's garden of sisterhood . Since its budding membership began in 1930, Omicron, with careful tending and nurturing by National Council , blossomed into a lovely rose which has graced the Sorority with each additional petal. Congratulations to every Omicron sister. May your chapter live and bloom fo rever.

The History In 1923 four college girls determined to organize a sorority o n the campus of Concord College for the purpose of maintainin g high moral and social standards. These charter members were Bula McManaway (Mrs. E. Meade McNeill), Bertie Moore, Hope Mann , and Hazelteen Powell. The colors for the sorority were red and white and the flower was the sweet pea. The open motto, "Be True." Eigh t more girls were initiated before the end of the first year, in the new Beta Theta sorority. In 1928-1929 an officer of A.E.S. visited the campus and organized a panhellenic council , for the sororities. She encouraged Beta Theta to become affiliated with a national sorority. Early in 1930 Beta Theta petitioned Alpha Sigma Tau for membership and was accepted . Miss Edith Mansell, national vice-president and organizer, installed the chapter on May 31, 1930. The eighteen charter members were : Jessie Worley, Virginia Boone, Julia White, Thelma Brown, Macil Stephens, Dessie Sarrett, Evelyn Symms, Jamie Meadows, Myrtle Delozier, Allie Whitlow, Mildred Appling, Marjorie Lilly,


Lucille Moses, Lillian Moses, Clarice Oakes, Virginia Bailey, Thelma Bailey and Gladys Udy. In 1933 Miss Mae Hunter of the English department became faculty adviser. Omicron has been one of the chapters who has contributed several outstanding officers and chairmen to the national staff. Bula McManaway McNeill was not only one of the original founders of the Concord College chapter, but also continued her interest in the collegiate chapter, alumnae chapter, and national organization for many years. She was the first Omicron alumnae representative; and was the first district president of the Fourth District

(Southern) serving from 1936 to 1942. She became the first Endowment Fund chairman in 1944. Ferne Shumate Phipps became Fourth District president in 1942 and continued in office until 1949. In 1949 she became National Housing Chairman and has served until the present time. Janet Calfee was District president from 1949-1955; and she was succeeded by Betty Funk Snidow, 1955-1959. Marcella Whitlock, Omicron Alumnae Representative for many years, received the Staehle Alumnae Award for Alumnae Advisers at the 1974 Convention , in recognition of her valuable assistance to Omicron Chapter.

Collegians and alumnae of Omicron Chapter, Concord College, planned and organized many activities and festivities commemorating the chapters' first 50 years. The first weekend of May was designated "Yellow Rose and Alumnae Weekend." The Beckley Alums sponsored a picnic which began the festivities Friday night, May 2, on Concord's Campus. Alumnae, Collegians and guests roasted hot dogs, toasted marshmallows, and shared golden memories. Saturday, the collegians were up early preparing for the Yellow Rose formal dinner and dance. They transformed the Princeton Dinner Bell Banquet room into an emerald green and gold wonderland of fluffy, white clouds, rainbows, and pots of gold. (The rainbows and pots of gold signified Omicron 's golden anniversary.) Tables were decorated with yellow roses and floating candles-members and guests received brandy snifters engraved with yellow roses and the words, "ALT Yellow Rose Formal Fiftieth Anniversary." Honored guests were Miss Betty Sue Hedrick, chapter consultant; Mrs. Rusty Treadway, Beckley Alumna President; Mrs. Larkin , assistant chapter advisor; and Miss Mildred Dransfield, chapter advisor.

Little Sister, is it worth it? Today's woman can dare think of herself first as an individual. She can even expect and receive recognition of her individuality. It is wonderful to be counted as a part of that impor tant segment of societytoday's women. We can be proud , not in spite of, but because we are women. We are still pleased to be mothers, wives, and da ughters. But we also enjoy and take pride in our roles as executives, leaders, athletes, and individuals. With our new-found opportunities, we must expect and accept responsibilities. A very important purpose of a national sorority is to provide a training ground for the development of the individual. Alpha Sigma Tau strives to help teach our members to live up to their potential. Through hard work, time, and association with the chapter members and the national organization, we realize our worth and grow ma ny ti mes ove r as a contrib uting member of society. Although we encourage involvement with other college activities

tions, we are deeply concerned with our members' association with "little sister" grou):6. We feel that the purpose of these grou):6 does not adhere to the goals and purposes of a national sorority. It is my understanding that one of the responsibilities of little sister membership is oftentimes preparing for and cleaning after a social function . Perhaps you should consider the worth of your time. As a sorority member, you can enjoy working beside fraternity members in a joint effort to raise money for a worthy cause or by co-sponsoring an all-campus dance. As a little sister member, will you be allowed a voice and vote in the fraternity business? In the sorority, you are an equal. Are you willing to accept becoming a part of an extension? In a sorority, you are a member of a total , democratic body. Have you considered that your priorities and obligations can easily be

confused? Are you willing to rush for a little sister group when you could be rushing for Alpha Sigma Tau? Ttme, money, opportunity for development and self-satisfaction must all be considered. Have you peered beyond the surface glamour? We are certainly not discouraging friendship and association with fraternities. We simply feel that through sorority participation you can benefit more and offer much more valuable assistance to the Greek System. Before you decide to join a little sister group, take the time to consider your responsibilities to womankind , to your sorority, and to yourself. -Bobbie Nichols

USED CRANKCASE OIL was mixed with No. 6 oil for heating last winter at the University of Rhode Island. Skidmore College (N.Y) plans to burn 100% used crankcase oil this winter, much of it donated by service station operators who receive receipts for tax-deductible charitable donations. A TUCK-IN SERVICE at the University of Maryland and Penn State for 25¢ or 50¢ may include a group singing "Rock-a-bye Baby" or a bedtime story, tucking in the covers, and a kiss on the cheek. Not exactly mother, but it's friendly. TO SAVE ENERGY--and an estimated $50,000-the University of the Pacific adopted new summer work hours of 7:00am to 3:30pm. Air conditioners were turned off at 12:30 pm but it was claimed that offices etc. stayed cool enough until closing time. BY THE END of the ' 80s one-fourth of the U.S. population will be Spanish-speaking says the president of Georgetown University. (UP/)

The Big Job Hunt So you want to go back to work. Great. You want to reassert that independence you had before you married " Mr. Wonderful. " Super! The children are in school and it wouldn't hurt to start putting more into the savings for their college education. You've made up your mind. Now it's time for the big job hunt. But it's been years since you worked

self-examining questions should depict a more realistic picture of what you can handle on the job. So how do you know what's out there in the job market that would coincide with your needs and interests? Read, not just the want ads but, magazines such as TIME and other news / financial magazines. Talk to people who work. Ask them about their work. Many community schools and universities have career counselors that offer free help. Remember, you have to be agressive. Not all available jobs are listed in the daily news.

Fitting into the job market

outside the home. Where do you begin? Before you look at the job market, ask yourself these questions: How do you identify your career interests with the jobs that are available? What are your capabilities? What is your potential? What have you done recently that could qualify you for a particular job? Review your past years and list all the jobs you've done .. . all the ones you liked and did well. Then try to decide which aptitudes you have. (Examples: manual dexterity, office skills, being a chairman of an organization, adeptness with vocabulary lists. ) Do you work well with people? Could you manage an office? Can you promote an idea or sell product? List your special areas of knowledge such as cooking, law, plants, child care, budgeting, etc. The next step is to list your values. Do you like to work in- or out-of-doors? Can you work best with or without people around? Can you work against a deadline or under pressure? Do you like to sit or move around? List ten things you like to do. Examine your personal and emotional values. Do you have children? What are your financial and family obligations? How is your health? What is your energy level? How much education do you have? These THE ANCHOR

Be assertive, beginning with your appearance. Look like the person who can do the job. Present your self confidently, in a way to let people know they want you. Confidence comes from knowing your strengths (which you listed earlier). Develop a plan and think it through. When you begin interviewing, ask an employer if he knows of other contacts. Inverviews are often a good source of leads to other jobs. How important is the interview? It is the single most important factor in landing a job. Most people who fail to get a job do so because they fail to promote themselves. They lack confidence. The object is to present yourself in the most positive manner possible. What can you expect during an interview? Here is a list of frequently asked questions: How would you describe yourself? Are you flexible? Can you work with others-can you get along with people? What work have


( I


you done that you enjoyed most? Will you fit in? Why did you leave your last job? Present your reasons in a positive light and never say you had a personality conflict. What are your plans for the future? What is one of your weak points? Can you take criticism? One positive statement of self criticism is, " When I get involved, I want to work all the time." Indicate you are reliable, independent. Tell the employer you really would like to work there, if you mean it. The one thing which keeps many women from getting a job is that they are too humble . You must be assertive because you are the best asset you have.

Jobs for the future Business forecasts indicate that during. the next ten years, the brightest areas in the job market open to women include health, accounting, business, sales-not retail, but industrial, insurance, stocks, or jobs which could require travel--and technical jobs such as math, science, engineering or computers. It has been predicted that by 1990, 52 million women will be working. Most of them will be married and have young children. More child care will be available and flexible to fit schedules of working mothers . The biggest problem concerning job-hunting women is occupational overcrowding. That is, certain areas such as education, secretarial or clerical positions, nursing, domestic or food service positions are too few for the many females who want to enter these professions. The one way women can avoid this problem is to broaden their educational preparation. 41

Well, what do you think of THE ANCHOR? This " new" format is the result of all the ideas , suggestions and criticisms you've given me over the past two years. I realize not all of you will be pleased with every change. But I would like to know which features you liked or disliked. Perhaps the most noticeable change is that the chapter reports have been shortened. I wrote each collegiate chapter and asked them to write about their most successful philanthropical program and their best rush parties. Some complied with the requests . Some didn't. Many alumnae chapters still do not understand the following : Fall issues are to report of past spring activities (Jan . to June). Spring issues convey news of Fall happenings (Sept. to Jan.). I do not have room and it is not fair to other chapters to send only one report for the entire year and expect to have it printed in its en&ety. It still amazes me that alumnae rarely ever take photographs--or at least I receive an average of only two per issue. Out of the many alumnae chapters we have, I think that is a very poor
