GWEN fROSTIG 'SRARES THE MAGIC OF NATURE by Emily Ashby Mcintire (Mrs. Michael) , Alpha Laaabda, National Historian

sf summer, my family and I journeyed through our new horne state of Michigan . We had been told by many of the treasure i as to offer. Our journey took us pot only to Mackinac Island, Traverse City, Charlevoix , and Petoskey, but also to the little own of Benzonia . Now, if it had not been for my trusty tour boo , rnay have overlooked it. But when I saw that Gwen Frostic Prints wa located there, knew we had to work in a visit.

t has Been said that Miss Frostie is the biggest draw of visit r-s to t e smallest county in M"chigan . Her business brings Up to 00 lSttOTS a the busiest part of the su mmer. Beside er beautiful artwork , which is sold in mass quantities, the building housing Presscraft Papers is well worth he trip. Sitting on a 250-acre personal wildlife sanctuary on the Betsie River, the c dar beam and stone building is now itself a art of natu e . twas built in th ea I 1960s and has now been absorbed y the growtb,_ surrounding it Grass covers the roof, and he entrance to her haven is a heavy wood doo which o ens by pulling a piece of driftwood " polished" every day by the hands oi those who enter.


Nature has been brought inside too. Among Miss Frostic's works , wood carvings of birds by some of America 's greatest wildlife carvers can be seen throughout. The nests of hummingbirds and hornets have been incorporated into the interior. Deer tracks and impressions are a part of the concrete floor. According to Miss Frostic, after the concrete was poured " the leaves blew on it and the deer walked across it." From the display room , which includes a huge fire place and natural fountain , visitors can watch fifteen presses printing items using the original block created by Miss Frosti . One ean spend hours leafing through her books, trying to decide which one to buy . The assortment of cards, notepaper, calenda,rs, stickers, napkins , books, and framed prints is tremendous. Her library may be one of the most complete nature libraries in Michigan . It is a place where visitors can study just abou1 any part of the wonders of nature . Two walls of the library are glass and allow you to gaze upon tile wild birds on the pond outside.

The brochure that describes her places says it best: " observer of- and part ofthe wondrous order of the universe -the rhythms of the seasons - sunsets and dawns and all things that live and breathewanders through fi elds and woods stopping here and there to sketch a blade of grass-

- a bird- or a leaf blown by the wind ... Listeningto the wi ldwind symphoniesSeeingeach tin y bit o'lovelinessFeelingthe grandeur of it all .. . " G wen Frostic works on a linoleum block print. Photo courtesy Trauerse Clry. Michigan

" The earth turns ... and the moon moves around it ... together they encircle the sun .. . counting the days .. . and the months . . . and the years .. . May my time be marked by . .. achi evement of my hands . . . my mind . .. and my heart . . . "

We were lucky enoug h to spend a few minutes with Miss Frostic during our visit. She is a lovely lady. One can imagine that her eyes are pathways into a deeper understanding of nature.

-Gwen Frostic, Alph a

" Th en entirely by hand- she carves each block to capture- in print- a bit of the fleet ing lo veliness one finds if one takes the time to see . . . Her books- filled with the joyousness of th e woods and the open fields- and the harmonious unity that synchronizes all life- expresses the indefinable something that li es deep in the hearts of all. ... " Gwen Frostic is indeed a treasure of Alpha Sigma Tau- a treasure to all those who have come to know her through her work . Her work is a gift to all of those who take the tim e to see with their eyes and feel with their hearts .

THE ANCHOR/Spring 1991


Spotlight On Alumnae We contacted other Alpha Sigma Tau alumnae who are "going places " in their fields . We asked them how they got started in their line of work and what their advice would be to other sisters who want to follow in their footsteps . We hope to make this a more regular feature in TH E ANCH OR, but we need to hear from you to do that. If you or a sister you know of has a successful or interesting career, please submit her name and address to THE ANCHOR Editor.

Rosalind Cutchins

Rosa lind Crenshaw Cutch ins , Zeta Tau , is Director of Family Services for EDMARC in Virginia. She works with families who have terminally ill children , focusing on bereavement support and crisis intervention . She fa cilitates parent support groups and serves as an advocate for grief support. Rosalind received a BS degree in Therapeutic Recreation from Longwood College, where she was honored as a senior as Greek Woman of the Year. She went on to earn an MS in Therapeutic Recreation from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It was during her internship in graduate school that she got her start in the field of family support. Rosalind recommends that others considering this field assure they have good personal support systems in place, as she feels it is difficult to support other people when you need lots of support for yourself. A sense of humor is very important, but " don 't be afraid to crytears are a gift of healing " . Rosalind concludes, " Know your own gifts- if you are a caring person , you 'd be surprised what you can give to others ."

Viki Hoffman

Victoria Klawitter Hoffman, Beta Delta, decided to become an attorney while in high school because she


was interested in helping people protect their rights under the law. Viki is admitted to practice law in the District of Columbia and Virginia and is an attorney with the law office of Charles Kane Schanker, P.C. Viki 's practice is civil litigation . Her undergraduate d~gree is from Duquesne University and her law degree IS from George Washington University. Viki served on the Legal Education Committee of the Fairfax Bar Association and is a member of the American Bar Association and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association. She is vice president of the Arlington chapter of Zonta International , an international organization of businesswomen , and is an active member and officer of Alpha Sigma Tau 's Northern Virginia Alumnae Chapter. As if that weren 't enough , Viki and her husband John are the parents of four children ranging from age 2 to age 16. " The legal field offers diverse opportunities to practice in many intellectually challenging areas ," said Viki . " There are personally challenging opportunities for women if they choose the career due to a genuine interest in practing a certain type of law without undue emphasis on financial reimbursement. Business connections are extremely important. Women interested in law as a career might do volunteer work and internships at legal and women 's centers, work in an attorney's office observe trials at the court house , read legal journals available at the courthouse and bar association libraries, and become a student member of local bar associations. Be sure that you want to practice before you invest in a legal education ." Holly Woodford McDonald, Zeta Tau , is a very active volunteer with the Birmingham , Alabama chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation . Nine years ago , Holly 's daughter was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus . In order to learn about diabetes and how to cope with a child with a chronic disease , the McDonalds became involved in the local chapter of JDF . Since 1982 , Holly has served as the Birmingham chapter's youth group chairman , telephone answering chairman , Children's day camp co-chairman and counselor, vice president, annual fashion show and auction ticket chairman , 10-K walker recruitment chairman (she raised $40 ,000 in one day for research!). and was a member of the chapter board of directors. Holly was a representative to the JDF 20th Annual Conference in Washington , where she met with Congressional representatives to discuss health issues such as funding for the National Institutes of Health, transplantation issues, and research issues . Holly feels her family has learned to live and cope with a disease , and that her daughter has learned to overcome obstacles. She has learned the sen e of accomplishment experienced in achieving goal et by a group of volunteers . Her advice to other i 路路Tho of you who have not become involved in your communit

Phyllis Pond

Phyllis Ruble Pond, Alpha Alpha , is a representative

in the Indiana House of Representatives . She was reelected in the fall of 1990 for her seventh two-year term. Since Indiana has a citizen legislature which meets 30 days one year and 61 days the next, Phyllis teaches kindergarten when she is not making laws. Phyllis served as a precinct committeeman for five years before being elected to the Indiana House of Representatives in 1978 . She was the first Re publican woman to serve in a leadership position in the Indiana House when she served as assistant caucus chairman from 1984-1988. Since 1988, she has been serving as the chairman of the Insurance Committee. If a woman wants to raise a family , Phyllis suggests that she do so before entering politics on the state level , as it is extremely time-consuming . Phyllis speaks from experience : her youngest child was in college when she was first elected . " However, a woman can become involved in local issues and work on campaigns anytime," said Phyllis. " This is good experience for running for higher offices. Holding a local , city, or county office builds credibility with the voters. They will not vote for an unknown product. You must prove you are worthy of their trust and confidence . Always be honest and truthful with your constituents ."

South Bend newspaper and working towards a master 's degree in communications at the University of Notre Dame . As one of the few women in national sports on TV, Betsy says she usually spends her time answering questions about going into men's locker rooms! " But I've always been a sports fan ", she continues, " and I enjoy the opportunity to cover some of the greatest athletes in the world ." Betsy is hesitant to recommend the broadcast industry to others because it is " a difficult profession to enter, there are few available jobs , and very little job security. The starting pay is low, and for women , it is still a tough male fraternity to crack . The rewards of self-satisfaction are great, though , for those who are willing to stick to it, work hard , and put up with the setbacks and hardships."

Dr. Lill ian V Schippe rs

Dr. Lillian Vogt Schippers, Pi , is an author of chil dren 's books and a retired educator . Her career began as a remedial reading teacher in the St. Louis Public Schools Reading Clinic . She then taught remedial reading at the elementary school level and moved on to become the director of a high school reading center, where she structured a reading center and a program for gifted students .

NATIONAL SURVEY by Ricki Bargman Trose n (Mrs. Wallace), Alpha Sigma, National Vice President During the summer of 1989, members of the National Council set aside time during their meeting to discuss the future of Alpha Sigma Tau for the 1990s and beyond. Each Council member set goals for her area at that meeting . From thi s planning session came the deci sion to survey the sorority's en tire membership because the Council did not want our sisters to feel that only the Council could set down the " laws " for the organization . We wanted to see what our members felt was important to the future of Alpha Sigma Tau . Each participant was asked to give her o pinion as to the three most critical issues faci ng Alpha Sigma Tau in the 1990s. Listed below, in al phabetical order, are the categories consistently ranked high by survey parti cipants. Statistics were gathered from coll egiate and alum nae members during the 1989-1990 academic year. The accompanying graphs indicate the percentage , by category, of goals, issues, and solutions offered by both collegiate and alumnae respondents. ALUMNAE RELATIONS : Items in this a rea included specific requests for information on ' networking" with alumnae for career information , job search assistance, and relocation . Collegians were specifically concerned about increased participation with cha pter alumnae. Alumnae requested more ideas on attracting new members to alumnae chapters . New ideas on combined alumnae and collegiate chapter activities were sought. Also suggested was increased contact from the National Organization via newsletters, chapter visits , and benefits for alumnae members . CHAPTER CONTACT: There was a cry from the collegiate membership for more ideas , activities, and structure for interchapter contacts . Such ideas included chapter pen pals, chapter phone lists provided to each chapter, leadership training for officers (beyond RLWs) , sister chapters, retreats with chapters, and chapter visits. Chapter Advisers might take a role in organizing such activities with supervision by their District Presidents . EXPANSION : Many participants were exci ted abou t the number of new colonies recently installed, but still expressed the desire to expand both the size and geographical range of the organization . Many members would like to see AST move onto larger campuses with stronger Greek systems. Collegiates would like to see existing chapters utilized in the expansion process. One

alumna mentioned the idea of developing an intentional and intensive expansion team. It was suggested that the National Organization recruit regional Traveling Counselors to make expansion contacts and provide consistent colony training . Several members expressed an interest in expanding alumnae chapters as well. FINANCES: Critical issues in this area included providi ng more assistance on fundraising and budgeting . One member asked for a fundraising booklet with workable ideas. Several asked for a more detailed picture on how their dues were spent . Participants were supportive of the organization of a special drive to raise funds towards the purchase of a new National Headquarters by o ur 100th a nni versary in 1999, and suggested that Headquarters be relocated to a smaller, more rural area for more reasonable rates on operating expenses. G RADES/ SCHOLARSHIP: Most collegiate chapters asked for more emphasis on academics from the National Organization. While they were not necessarily interested in raising the overall grade point average for pledging, they do want more ideas on scholarship improvement, study tips , and test taking. One chapter expressed an interest in raising the required GPA to join to a 2.5 so that AST might define itself as an organization of strong , intelligent leaders among today ' s Greek members. NATIONAL ASSISTANCE: Both collegiates and alumnae would like more communication from the a tiona! Organization . Suggestions were made to revise the reporting and efficiency system . Many asked for additional visits from the National Organization . Again , it was suggested that the ational Organization hire more field representatives on a regional basis or train alumnae to assist Chapter Advisers. It was also suggested that the Alumnae Aelations(20.4"o)

sorority manuals be updated and sent to all chapters and that more films be made available for chapter use. PHILANTHROPY: Several participants expressed the opinion that sponsorship of a more recognizable phi lanthropy is needed. Others stated a need for the freedom to become more involved in activities of the ir local communities without having to support a National Phi lanthropy. Many pleas were made for support of the idea of social service with recognition to the chapters and to either the campus or community . One alumna expressed a need to have an RLW or leadership workshop for staff or collegians at Pine Mountain. PLEDGING: It was suggested that the pledge period be shortened and stress basic leadership , communication , and group activities. Many are concerned about the amount of information available to chapters on hazing. One alumna suggested that the sorority attorney send or make a video tape of case studies on legal issues in this area to collegians for further study. PU BLIC RELATIONS: Several members stressed the need to create a stronger awareness of AST through updated publicity. Many liked the new ideas for expan sion , but feel th e campaign needs to be extended into other areas of sorority life . Suggestions included defin ing the sorority image of AST (who are we , where are we going) , strong leadership in National positions, in creased emphasis on scholarship, and more encouragement for philanthropic activities. Several collegiate members asked for increased PR to their college campuses to inform the administration of AST's purpose . RUSH : Several pleas were made for a national ru sh team organized on a regional basis for district use. Such teams would visit each chapter and give specific ideas for rush . Additional ideas included the creation of a na tional rush theme every year including detailed information for party use. One collegian suggested that a standing preference party be created , containing the fun damental values of AST. More information was sought

on specific ru sh techniqu es. SOCIAL ISSUES: A high percentage of members expressed strong concerns for more education in th e areas of AIDS , drug abuse, date rape , alcohol use, liability , stress management, and the future of the Greek community. Both collegiate and alumnae members expressed a desire to become more involved in promoting assistance for such cau~es. Alpha Sigma Tau women need to be leaders in soc iety and need assistance from the National Organization to understand the consequences of inappropriate behavior. As a result of comments made in this survey and the planning process, we have already begun the following : • • •

Plans are being developed to include a networking feature in futur e issues of THE ANCHOR. Alpha Sigma Tau is making presentations at larger campuses and is beefing up its expansion team . The National Scholarship Chairman has been providing study tips in each issue of the Alpha Sig-Nal , and a scholarship booklet is in process and will be published within the next two years . The National Council and Staff, with assistance from both collegiate and alumnae presidents, is looking at our present effici ency system , with a complete overhaul of the requiremQflts likely during 1991. All sorority manuals will be updated on a regular basis with the institution of a new publications time lin e. The National Rush Director makes rush tips and suggestions available in each Alpha Sig -Nal. Rush videos are presented at RLWs and Convention . Videos are available from National H eadquarters on hazing and a variety of social issues and each collegiate chapter is required to view at least one of these each academic year. The Expansion Publi city Committee and National Council are looking at the possibility of adding to our national phil anthropies . Th e national survey will be repeated on a regular basis and results will be reported to the membership .

We'd like to thank those of you who participated and subm itted your views. The National Organization welcomes the opini ons of all members on these and other issues . Pl ease address your concerns to Ricki Trosen , National Vi ce President, 904 Kings Road , Kirksville, MO 63501.

THE ANCHOR/Spring 1991


CAREER PLANNING by Ricki Bargman Trosen (Mrs. Wallace), Alpha Sigma, National Vice President You wake up and you realize that you have an interview at the Career Placement Center this morning . Panic sets in and you wonder what made you decide to schedule an appointment with the First National Corporation . What in the world does a management trainee do? Is this really what you want to do with the rest of your life? Many seniors will experience the trauma described above and will respond in countless ways . For some, action and goal setting will satisfy the job search problem ; for others, procrastination and avoidance will set in. Each person will struggle to find answers to solve the dilemma of what to do after graduation . The real question is how to work through the maze without waiting until the last minute . Making career-oriented decisions, for the most part, is not any different than other decision-making Pr<)CE!~es. Susan Jeffers, author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, stresses the idea of making " no-lose" decisions. Rather thinking that job A or job B is right or wrong, it is more important to remember that job A and job B are both decisions from which you would learn something . Careers are a series of jobs and the average person changes jobs to six times in their life span . So any job that you find that matches your values , interests, and skills will assist you in building a successful career. Choosing a job then presents several issues to consider and a practical formula that will assist you in setting and accomplishing your goals. The first thing to consider is how well you know yourself. How long has it been since you thought about what kind of lifestyle you want, where you want to live, and what skills you will need to do the job? Do you even know what sort of jobs are out there for you? Can you make a list of at least ten occupations that interest you? To begin , try listing ten such jobs and places where such people work. Keep in mind your interests, values , and skills. Do the titles on your list match the goals that you have? If you have trouble making such a list, then it is time to take action . Make it a point to visit your Career Placement Center to explore with the staff the opportunities that exist within your area . Do not feel intimidated if you cannot be specific in your plans. It is the purpose of the office and the staff to assist you in finalizing your plans . Several activities exist that will assist you in this area. Try reading career or company literature to determine the specific jobs available . Visiting with employers during campus visits will broaden your knowledge of the career path that is right for you . Such employers regularly come to your campus to attend job fairs, to interview , or to give presentations. It is encouraging to them to realize that students have an interest in finding out who they are and what they do. They are most willing to spend time answering any questions you may have concerning your future. If employers are not available on campus, don 't panic. Some organizations do not come to campus to recruit , as they have varying cycles of employment. In fact , only 15% of the senior class will find employment through a campus interview program . The strategy you need to employ is to find out how to find a job, which is a job in itself. Remember, only you can determine your future and a trip to the Career Placement Center is the first step. So, take a deep breath and relax. Nearly everyone is nervous when interviewing for a job . The interviewer is there to answer your questions and give you information about the corporation. Who knows- this intervi ew may lead to the perfect job!

RUSHING INTO THE 90s by Melissa Friesen Parks (Mrs. Clinton R.), Beta Xi, National Rush Director Rush is an all-year commitment from the whole chapter! There are studies that indicate a person forms an opinion about someone or some place in the first few min utes, so first impressions are very important in rush. Make your first impressions count next fall with well-run Open Houses and Informationa l Parties . The goal is to have Alpha Sigma Tau remain positive in the rushees ' minds after the first party. Important ingredients for a successful first party include well-groomed sisters and pledges wearing nice outfits, tasteful decorations that will portray the message your chapter is giving the rush ees, open minds and ears to listen to the rushees and learn about their interests and activities, and each Alpha Sigma Tau sister's knowledge of what it means to be an ASTI Your chapter needs to know your product. If you're confident of what AST means to you , if you feel a bond with your sisters, know your chapter traditions and the many advantages of being in a sorority as well as the responsibilities , time commitments , and financial as pects, then you can accurately portray your chapter as a high-class, quality organization. First parties are important in order to get the rushees coming back to all of the following parties-theme parties , skit parties, and the preference party. You want to have as many opportunities as possible for each chapter member to get to know the rushees and for the rushees to learn more about Alpha Sigma Tau. Spend more time listening than talking by asking pertinent questions . You'll be able to better determine what the rushee 's really like, what her interests and goals are , and how she sees AST fitting into her life. Remember that skits need to send out a positive image of the chapter, so you 'll need to have your most talented sisters planning and practicing to make a good impression . Theme parties can be a lot of fun for everyone and give a chance to show the rushees a creative side of Alpha Sigma Tau. Be proactive. Don 't wait to see if rushees are interested in you and your chapter. Take action and make a positive impression so they will be interested. Take an honest look Alpha Chapter shows off its " AET's Most Wanted " rush party shirts.

at last year's rush program and evaluate what went well , what went wrong , and take action to improve it! It's okay to feel disappointed when things don 't go as well as you hoped , but each chapter member needs to be involved to so lve any problems and move on to the positive. We all need to take the initiative to make our chapters stronger and more successful. Positive public relations are very important to a successful rush program , so you need to start advertising early for rush activities. Get your chapter's name recognized on campus by volunteering in the community and being involved in university activities. Plan your parties in detail and ahead of time. This can make a big difference in a fun and successful party versus a tension-filled and disorganized one . Prior preparation for rush is so important. The more comfortable the chapter members feel , the more comfortable their guests will feel. You should practice with each other, your pledges, advisers, alumnae- make time for complete rehearsals before rush parties start . Practicing helps your chapter come across as professional , and rushees get the best impression when your parties are polished . Start planning for rush at least a semester (or two terms) ahead of time. When setting up your calendar and budget for the next semester or term , be sure to schedule time for a chapter rush workshop. Everyone needs to practice rushing skills and setting aside a specific time to do so is the best way to be sure rush gets top priority. Everyone will be enthused about rush and feel a part of each program and that they are ready for each party. Even if your chapter has informal rush planned for fall , a structured workshop will refresh the memory of the experienced rusher and teach your newest sisters what rush is all about from a mem ber's viewpoint. Be sure to listen to the comments your newest sisters have about rush . They just experienced rush as a rushee , not an AST, and may surprise you with their observations of how the chapter came across! Remember that the goal of rush is to pledge the best young women to become mem bers of Alpha Sigma Tau !

HELEN BRUCE CAMPBELL 1910-1990 Ma ny nota bl e women have contributed much to Al pha Sigma Ta u. Helen Bruce Campbell , Sigma , was one of these women . She died late last year at ho me shortly after her 80th birthday . Helen touch ed th e lives of Alpha Sigma Ta u collegiates and alumnae throughout the country. Her van adorned with AST bumper stickers was her trademark as she trave led a lone from cam pus to campus . She slept in the dorms, attended meetings , and parti ed with our collegiates. She was our goodwill ambassador. Helen 's generosity was exemplifi ed by establishing a conventio n fund to assist the Sigma Cha pter . In good weather she drove 40 miles to a ttend the Buffalo Alumnae Chapter meetings . She helped each hostess, always keeping a low profil e . In 1988 she ra llied after a devastating car accident severely burned her face and body . One of her primary concerns was tha t she could not attend that year 's convention . We will all remember Helen at the 1990 Conve ntion- a little quieter but spunky, a devoted , loving, ca ring lady exem plifying all the ideals of Alpha Sigma Ta u. We will mi ss he r. Helen was and is an inspiration to us a ll. - Janet LaSpisa Bartlett 13

Since Youngstown is a commuter school and the chapter has not yet obtained a house , we are not able to spend as much time togeth e r as most other chapters. This day gave sisters a chance to show new pledges what sorority and true sisterhood are really about. For a philanthropy project, Alpha Rho helped a local art museum for the weekend at the beginning of Dece mber. We also donated food to one family in the area for a Thanksgiving dinne r and did the same for Christmas. We bought the two chi ldren in this family gifts and clothing for the holiday.

Our commercial was fo r " Good ' n ' Plenty. " Th e sisters and pledges dressed up as " Good 'n' Plenty" boxes and performed a dance to " Choochoo Charlie." Our nominee for Greek Homecoming Queen, Kelly Marinaccio , took third place .

Founders Day was celebrated at Phillips Library. A Rededication Ceremony was held and the sisters sang the " Round from Reg ional Day " as our proud parents looked on .

We distributed flyers with Alpha Chi Rh o for a bookstore whose proceeds benefit the West Chester Area Senior Center, held our third annual Trick or Treat with Pi Kappa Phi for children in a juvenile detention center, and did volunteer work for Brian 's Run , a marathon to raise money for spi nal-injury victims . Pl edges contributed by holding a canned food drive for the needy , and a penny drive for Pine Mo untain . Fundraising was also important and was accomplished by selling Halloween bags and having credit card applications fill ed out. To help enhance ou r sisterhood , we held a retreat. A spaghetti dinner was served and we discussed diffe rent aspects about the chapter. Sisters and pledges attended various forums , including one on sexism , and a teleconfe rence called " Greek Survival into the 90s. " Socially, we were very active.

dure for many years to come. As th ey sa t in that lobby, mumbling songs and reciting phrases , they refl ected on th e year of hard wo rk th at was about to climax . Thoughts were about the ca rs washed to raise money, th e trip to th e elderl y ca re home las t Easter , th e victory during Greek Week last sprin g, th e planning retreat at the beginning of the semester, the letters written to soldiers overseas and the criti cal role played by all in hav: ing THE m os t success ful Panh elleni c ru sh WVIT has had in years. Even th e Founders Day celebration was a study session for th e national exam . After everything was said and done, it was well worth it. Our thanks go out to everyone who helped us, from ou r local advisers and th e other Greeks on campus , to our Nati onal Officers {who we seemed to call every other day), to Mi ss Patri cia Nayle and th e oth er installing officers, and especially to our special sister Susan Rogers, without whom we would probably still be wondering what to do next.

Alumnae DETROIT Keeps in Touch This past summer, members found a new way to keep in touch . A family picnic was held at a local park . Each family brought their own lunch and a dish to pass. Fifteen chi ldren attended , ranging in age from 9 months to 9 years . Janice Garbarino supplied a pinata with plenty of candy . Everyo ne agreed that this should definitely be an annual event. The September meeting was held at the ho me of Emi ly Mcintire . Several members brought photos from Convention and described their Convention experiences. Items from Convention were available for sale.

For the second year, the chapter has chosen secret sisters. In January , members who choose to participate draw names. A small gift is given each month. The highlig ht is in December when a fi nal handcrafted gift is given and each member tries to guess the identity of her secret sister. Last year nearly everyone guessed correctly. Hopefully, this year we will be better at keepi ng secrets' The October meeting was held at the home of Joyce Worlow. Members enjoyed a demonstration of the making of pine cone wreaths . T he Ypsilanti -Ann Arbor Chapter hosted the joint Founders Day celebratio n this year. Nearly 170 sisters attended, including collegians and pledges from Al pha and Beta Chapters . This year, instead of a speaker, eight Ypsilanti -Ann Arbor sisters dressed as the Founders and talked about how Alpha Sigma Tau has changed and yet re mained the same . Convention awards were acknowledged and winning Con vention songs sung . - Patricia Curristan Maddens

Held at Patrick 's in Westport , the luncheon was a joyful reunion on a very special day . We were entertained at a potluck hosted by Beta Eta . Getting acquainted was the party purpose , and introductions were really informative , letting everyone know more about one another. We reciprocated in October when we had a pool and pizza party for Beta Eta at the local YMCA . Everyone swam , played , and exercised for a profitable physical time that was enjoyable as well. -Nancy Susan Hanks

INDIANAPOLIS Prays for Peace The Indianapolis Area Alumnae Chapter kicked off the fall calendar with a Sunday afternoon tea . Pam Legg was the hostess, and during the day she was awarded the Alumnae Top Tau Award from Convention. President Barb Heeb and retiring National Treasurer Becky Appleman had accepted it for her when they attended Convention. In October we met to learn more about Crossroads Rehabilitation Center , which is one of our philanthropic concerns. Last year we participated in their Easter Egg Hunt. We learned a lot about their programs , which are housed in their newly-opened headquarters . .In November we headed north to Anderson to the home of Ingrid Mason . We had a salad supper followed by viewing the Pine Mountain Settlement School slides. Since several of our members visited the school last year, we had a better insight into the fine work they do and the important role that Alpha igma Tau

plays in the lives of those served by Pine Mountain and its staff. We closed our Founders Day celebration with a candlelight ceremony reaffirming our vows to our sisterhood . Our Christmas season was a busy one. We once again participated in the Indianapolis Alumnae Panhellenic gift wrap project. Money we earn goes toward various charities . It is a fun and profitable venture for us all. We also enjoyed our annual Christmas party and gift exchange. We will hold our board meeting in Jan uary where we will consider plans and direction for 1991. We offer our special prayers for our sister Pamela Ruch , as her husband has been assigned to Saudi Arabia . - Pam Legg

NORTHERN NEW JERSEY Organizes The Northern New Jersey group is in the process of becoming an official alumnae chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau . We have been holding meetings since September 1990. Most of the time over the last few months was spent getting organized . Newsletters were sent to Alpha Sigma Tau alumnae in the area on a monthly schedule since our first meeting . The newsletter is a synopsis of what is going on during that month and what went on during the meeting . We have elected officers , started planning our fundraising events, and held some events with the collegiate chapters. Founders Day was celebrated with Beta Upsilon and Gamma Chi. About 60 Alpha Sigma Taus were present. We performed a candlelighting for Linda Lagala , who had just become engaged . This taught the collegiate chapters why you may have one and how it is conducted . Other interactions with collegiate chapters included participation in the initiation of new Beta Upsilon sisters Northern Virginia Founders Day Dinner: Alpha Lambdas (1. to r.) Cheryl Quast , Christine Cole, Donna Macerolla. Jani Homola. and Corinne Rosin.

NORTHERN VIRGINIA Evaluates Convention As has been customary for a number of years , the Northern Virginia Alumnae Chapter began 1990-1991 with a potluck supper. It was held at Mary Early 's home, with Martha Jones assisting. The turnout was terrific and there was enough good food for a small army! We never cease to wonder how our potlucks-absolutely unplanned or assigned-can end up being " well-planned dinners! " Our entire meeting was spent discussing the Convention held last June in Richmond. Those who had attended either full or part time were: Mary Charles Ashby, Meda Ray Sewell, Carole Keily, Nancy Voltz , Edith Elliott , Betty Gail H liott , Mary Louise Doyle , Margaret Meinzer , Charlotte Floyd , Lucia Bacon, and Carol Mooney. Mary Charles Ashby was in charge of the National Staff luncheon , and Mary Louise Doyle was the speaker. Lucia Bacon, assisted by Carol Mooney, was in charge of the Queen 's Luncheon , to which our chapter contributed favors . Meda Ray Sewell was responsible for the National Foundation breakfast. We are proud of our sisters who serve on Alpha Sigma Tau 's National Staff: Mary Charles Ashby, Lucia Bacon , Carole Keily, Meda Ray Sewell, and Nancy Voltz. Our October get-together was at Carol Mooney ' s home . Debby Weinste in served as co-hostess and once again we had a very good attendance. During the evening we made door decorations for a nursing home in the area. Founders Day was celebrated at the Hunan Lion II I-Quality Inn . A sumptuous meal was beautifully served , course after course! Mary Louise Doyle spoke about the value of alumnae membership in a national sorority. President Edith Elliott presented yellow roses to past chapter presidents in attendance, and was presented with one herself by Mary Cha rl es Ashby . Birdalee Wagaman and Meda Ray Sewel l received roses for reaching the 50-year mark in membershi p; Helen Sours was unable to be there to be recognized. Carole Keily's rose was for a "service rendered" to AST: Baby Eli zabeth-a p ossible candidate for membership around 2008? Leah Burke

THE ANCHOR/Spring 1991

Lowe was unable to attend the dinner . However, three weeks later, she too rendered like service for AST: Baby Anna Burke Lowe! After all this enjoym ent of the evening , we became seriou s and Cathy Schreiner paid tribute to Dorothy Gates , who passed away in April 1990 after a long bout with cancer. The chapter is grateful to the following women for their part in a successful Founders Day: Susan Baker, Betty Sue Glaeser, Mary Charles Ashby , Maryann West , Leisa Small, and Cheryl Qu ast. Thanks are also due to Debby Wei nstei n for th e very fin e directories she produced for the chap ter. The Christmas party was a very relaxed affair with plenty of holiday goodies. After a short meeti ng, we exchanged gifts and sang carols. Betty Gail Elliott brought a table keyboard to provide accompaniment to the carollers. The evening closed with a prayer for peace. Canned goods and candy were brought to the party to be delivered to an organi zation called Loaves and Fishes, which feeds some 200 people every night. - Mary Louise Doyle

Twenty-two sororities participate and have a fin e scholarship program in the area . The tea was hosted by Margaret Geiselman on September 23 . We brought fing er sandwiches and helped serve the Panhellenic representatives who attended. Fourteen of us attended the Panhellenic Scholarship Luncheon which also honored Carolyn Alexander's presidency. Founde rs Day was sha red with Edwardsville Alumnae, Beta Psi , and Beta Eta . The luncheon was hosted by Edwardsville and held at Patrick 's Restaurant in Westport. Expansion slides provided the program, which concluded with the Candlelighting Ceremony. Each co llegiate chapter was presented with a check from the alumnae groups . We wrapped presents on December 12 at a local shopping center, earning money to present to Beta Psi. We have also been assisting Beta Psi in learning songs. National Music Chairman Arline Clark is the on-site expert who is ever generous with her time and materials. - Arline Clark

We held our annual Founders Day dinner at Wesley's Restaurant in Virginia Beach on November 15 . At our gathering three new members were inducted into our chapter: Amy Miller, Jeanne Knaus , and Dorcus Lief. We are presently collecting Campbell soup labels and Betty Crocker labels to earn money to send to Pine Mountain . We collected candy, pens , pencils , and other goodies at our November meeting for Panh ellenic to make exam study/ goodie bags for the college students at ODU . We are selling entertainment coupon books and the sales are terrific! Two of our members attended RLW at Radford University last November. - Gerianne Holl
