Delta Lambda Chapter Installed Sisters receive gifts at Delta Lambda Installation Banquet.


In 1996, two women met with campus officials to di scuss bringing a new sorority to Siena Heights University's campus. Two years later, the Delta Lambda Chapter was installed. On September 19, 1998, in a ceremony on the Siena's campus in Adrian, Michigan, the realization of a dream shared by many women on the campus came true. Mandy Lupu and Amanda Sill met with campus officials, researched various national organizations andrecruited women on campus to help them realize their dream. That dream was to improve Greek life on Siena's campus and create an organization which emphasized inclividualism, academic excellence, community service, and --most of-- all friendship. Soon eight members of the "Alpha" club started to pursue afftliation withAlphaSigmaTau. De pitemany ups and downs, the group held together, and on February 8, 1998, Expansion Assistant Anne Gruber conducted the Pinning Ceremony, officially marking Delta Lambda' affiliation with our sorority.

Centennial Challenge Kick Off in Ann Arbor At the 1998 National Convention in Ann Arbor, the National Foundation Board of Directors announced a new, two-year fund raising campaign. The "Centennial Challenge" was issued, and immediately AETs began to support this effort. It is the National Foundation's goal to raise $100,000 prior to the close of our centennial celebration in Birmingham, Ala. in 2000. The National Foundation has challenged each AET, collegian and alumnae, to donate $10 toward this goal. The donations will be tracked by donor chapter affiliation. Each chapter, active and inactive, has the opportunity to be the chapter

that reaches 100% and receive a special recognition at the 33rd National Convention. Information regarding chapter progress will be included in THE ANCHOR, THE CREST and the Foundation News. Theta Chapter is out in front of all the others with donations collected prior to July 31, 1998. Send donations to: AST National Headquarters 1929 Canyon Road Birmingham, AL 35216-1723 All proceeds from this fund raiser will go towards Pine Mountain Settlement School and the Headquarters Fund.

Convention Fund Raiser for Pine Mountain Settlement School Attendees atthe32ndNational Convention opened their hearts and their wallets as the National Foundation sponsored a very special fund raiser for Pine Mountain Settlement School. The tradition of theN ational Foundation raffle and yellow rose sale continued at the 1998 Convention in Ann Arbor, with a new twist this year. The National Foundation Board of Directors announced that all proceeds from these sales would be donated to Pine Mountain Settlement School. As a result of the overwhelming support of the AET's in attendance, $1,102 was raised. This amount far exceeded the goal set by the National Foundation, and doubled the amount THE ANCHOR - Fall/Winter 1998

raised at previous conventions. The lucky raffle winners were: Carol Cooper- Silver AST jewelry box Emily Mcintire- AST afghan Mary Charles Ashby- AST lavalier. The Alpha Sigma Tau National Foundation Board of Directors wishes to thank all who supported this fund raiser. A special thank you also goes to the Elliott Sisters -- Betty Gail, Edith and Meda Ray-- for manning the sales table. It is because of AET sister's generosity, that Pine Mountain Settlement School was able to receive these additional funds.

1998 National Foundation Donor Breakfast The Sheraton Inn Petite Ballroom, Ann Arbor, Mich. , was the site for the 1998 National Foundation Donor Breakfa t. On June 25, 1998, sixty-four individuals, chapter and/or groups were recognized for their continued support of the Alpha Sigma Tau National Foundation. These recognitions were for those whose contributions, over the past two years, raised their total contributions to a new level of giving. Of those recognized, there were fourteen collegiate chapters, six alumnae chapters, one group, and fortythree individuals. Each individual or chapter received a certificate of recognition . Individuals also received a donor level pin. The Levels of Giving that have been established by the National Foundation have been altered slightly to allow for continued recognition of some of our most faithful supporters. It is with great excitement that the National Foundation announce the addition of four new levels of giving - the Founders Levels (I-XI). The e levels recognize those donor who have contributed $60,000 or more. The fust recipient of the Founders I Level recognition pin and certificate was in attendance at this event -- Dr. Rose Marie Schmidt. Dr. Schmidt bas long supported Alpha Sigma Tau through her time, talents and fmancial contributions . She is currently serving as Treasurer of the National Foundation Board of Directors.

NPC National Badge Day: March 1, 1999

Place it over your heart with pride! National Panhellenic Badge Day ~arch 1, 1 999 March 1999 will mark the third annual National Panhellenic Badge Day, an effort that encourages sorority women to celebrate their Greek affiliations by wearing their badge or letters. The public awareness campaign entitled, "Place it over your heart with pride" is slated for March I st. "National Badge Day gives sorority women of all ages and in all locations a way to show their Greek pride," said Lissa Bradford, Chairman of the National Panhellenic 16

Conference. "We have lot of great news to share," aid Bradford, "during the la t year over $2 million was given in scholarships and donations to charitable organizations, alumnae involvement is up and membership number continue to climb-- we have a lot to be proud of." "A badge is a great conversation starter," Bradford contended, "it provide the chance to share what Greek

membership is .... a lifetime opportunity for friend hip, leadership, learning and service. " It's important that Alpha Sigma Tau be repre en ted on National Badge Day. Thi i the time for all collegiate and alumnae member to wear their badges with pride. Collegiate hould make March 1, 1999 a "badge attire" day with i ter wearing their badge to clas e , meeting , or anywhere they go that day. Alumnae hould also wear "badge attire" for the day. They can wear their badges to work or doing daily activities. The individual they would encounter during the cour e of a day, would lead to an incredible amount of people being better informed on Greek life. On March 1 tall i ter hould take advantage of National Badge Da and be an active poke per on for Alpha Sigma Tau. Here's to hoping that th u and f women port th ir badg -. ith prid .

Chez Cheap..... Chez Chic Cruising the garage sales? Trading goods at the local consignment shop? Clipping coupons? Still searching for that "blue light" special? Cheap, huh? Not according to the current trend in consumerism. Cheap is chic. And in a lot of cases, its necessary to live within your monthly budget. There is a strong movement in the U.S. towards frugality in all aspects of daily life. Studies indicate that 75 per cent of American workers between the ages of 25 and 49 would like to see a return to a simpler life with less emphasis on wealth and belongings. Sadly, the per capita consumption in the past 20 years rose by 45 percent, while the quality of life as measured by the Index of Social Health decreased by 51 percent. We must be doing something terribly wrong!!! The frugality movement is made up of people who are making less and consuming less, and finding a lot more happiness along the way. Being frugal doesn't mean lowering your standard of living or quality of life. It means prioritizing your life and deciding what you truly need, not what you want. It means doing more for yourself. This is easier to do than you think. Obviously, everyone doesn't need to bake their own bread, learn to fix their own car, or grow their own produce - unle s that's what you like to do. Some changes to frugal living can be done immediately, while other changes need to be done in small steps. To fmd some concepts and tips on living a little more cheaply, you don't have to go far. There are many books and websites specializing in this very subject. You can start with The Frugal Zealot herself, Amy Dacyczyn, and author of The Tightwad Gazette books. Some tips from her books include: 1. Don't buy things new if you don't have to. You can buy quality items at garage sales for a fraction of the cost of new items and pick up great buys at consignment shops. THE ANCHOR - Fall!Winter 1998

2. Don't pay for entertainment. Fix an expensive meal at home instead of going out. 3. Bring gift giving down to a more reasonable level. With creativity, you can come up with appropriate gifts for a reasonable amount. 4. Don't buy convenience foods. Making food from scratch will significantly bring down your weekly grocery bill. 5. Live below your means. Do a budget and stick with it. 6. Evaluate the extra expenses in your life. Do you really need the expensive makeup? shoes? car? .... 7 . Use up your leftovers. You may be able to get an entire meal out of two or three nights of leftovers, or take them for lunch at the office instead of going out to eat. 8. Don't go to first-run movies. Check out the "dollar theater" (most towns have theaters that charge $1 - $2), take in a matinee show or wait until it comes out in video and rent it. 9. Get books from the library. You can check out your favorite author or catch up on monthly magazines. 10. Comparison shop. Take time to check out prices. Often you can get a better deal at the store with a coupon than in a wholesale club. To accomplish true frugality, you need to set up long term goals. This is a more difficult and will take research, time and commitment to be successful. Your first step should be to track your spending. Get receipts for everything and do a weekly check on where your money is going. This task takes patience and is probably the most difficult change to accomplish, but you'll develop great insight into your spending habits and be able to make informed decisions on where you can cut back. For example, you could find out that your families combined trips to the A TM add up to $50 in banking fees for a week. Why not leave out a set amount

of cash each week. Use an ATM only man emergency. Concentrate on reducing unnecessary expenses like business lunches, gifts for co-workers and shopping at the local convenience store. Most importantly, do your be t to pay off those high interest credit cards. These debts can be deadly and leave you in financial trouble. You can get in a rut where your monthly finance charges are nearly equal to your monthly payment and you never get ahead. In spite of a 50 percent increase in personal income between 1957 and 1991 , the percentage of people who are "very happy" did not change. So, do more "things" make u happy? Or will implifying our life and doing more for ourselves and with our families make u happier? People spend more time at their jobs (163 more hours per year today as compared to 1969) to make more money, to buy more things. Considering a recent studied revealed that today's parent spend 40 percent less time with their children than parents did in 1965. Frugality effects more than ju t finances . Obviously, there are many tasks that need to be handled by a profe ional -brain surgery comes to mind. But there are many change you can incorporate into everyday expenditures that will a~e money and make significant changes in your life in the long run . Under tanding that some changes take the "long run " to see the savings. Everyone has heard thi infamou quote by Benjamin Franklin, "A penny saved, is a penny earned." Was he being cheap? Frugal? Maybe. Or maybe he was ju t smart! 19


In 1899, in Ypsilanti, Mich ... Eight great girls sat right down and made themselves a wish ... Every Alpha Sigma Tau has learned the names of those "eight great girls"Mable Chase, Ruth Dutcher, May Gephart, Harriet Marx, Eva O'Keefe, Adriance Rice, Helene Rice and Mayene Tracy. Our sorority history, however, does not tell us what it was like to be a college student 100 years ago or even what our Founders' lives were like. Imagine what it was like for a young woman to attend a state normal school - a teachers' college - one hundred years ago. Often they were younger than the now-traditional 18-22 year olds attending college. Some students at normal schools were as young as 15, with just eight years of schooling under their belt. Young women who attended college often lived in rooming houses in the community with other female students. Students at a state normal school, as a rule, came from working-class Christian homes. Our eight founders were typical college girls of the tum of the century. Nervous about being away from home, anxious about completing their twoyear stint of teacher training and competing in a man's world. Through it all they liked to have a good time when classes were over. Indeed, Alpha Sigma Tau's earliest history recounts parties given by the collegians at Ypsilanti. During its first year in Ypsilanti, the sorority did not display much activity, according to one of the founders, Harriet Marx Pfeiffer. She wrote that the charter was not received from the college until the second year, when seven more young women joined the group. With the original eight founders, they became Alpha Sigma Tau's charter members. Their advisers were Mrs. Effie E. Lyman, Miss Abigail Pearce and Miss Ada A. Norton. 20

Miss Pfeiffer wrote that after college, in general, those first members followed Horace Greeley's advice and went west (though she observed that he confined his admonitions to "young men") Our founders moved to western Michigan, to Wisconsi n, to Montana and to Washington state. Mrs. Pfeiffer, herself, eventually retired to California. Many of the founders taught on the American frontier until they married, turning their attention to the ways of their households, as most women did at the time. Carrie Washburne Staehle, President Emerita, reflected that, "some people in the early 1900s criticized sororities as being undemocratic, but all clubs and fraternal organizations are simply responding to is an instinct of togetherness." Even cave-dwellers gathered into clans for protection and friendship, each with its own area of habitation and descriptive name. A baby born one hundred years ago had a life expectancy of 46. The majority of children went to one-room country schools where they learned to read. Penmanship was important; pens had replaceable steel points inserted in a holder and one always needed a bottle of ink and a blotter. (Many books and papers were ruined when the ink bottles overturned!) The Indian Head one-cent piece was the most popular coin. A loaf of bread cost five cents, a bag of candy

one cent, as did a pencil and tablet. Children took their Sunday school or church offerings- usually a penny- tied in the comer of their handkerchiefs. Transportation was slow and minimal. People had to either walk or ride in a horse-drawn vehicle. Steam-engine trains were used for trips between cities. Even in Michigan, the home of the American automobile, there were very few cars one hundred year ago. Communication was al o slow. There was a daily paper with new a day late, postcards with a one-cent stamp and letters with a two-cent tamp. Few people had telephone which were just a box on the wall holding tw batterie connected by v ire to p le on the street. On the front of the b were two bell that rang wh n a all nth I ft carne in, and a mouthpi THE AN H R - Fat

side were a crank to wind to place a caJl, and a receiver connected by a cord to the box to listen to incoming calls. Our founders were not able to vote in an election until twenty-one years after the founding of Alpha Sigma Tau, when most of them were in their late thirties. They, like many young women of their day, worked outside the home until they were married. Those who worked out side the home held traditionally female occupations like teaching and nursing. On that autumn evening in 1899, night young women stood on the verge of a new century. Did they wonder what the twentieth century would bring? Did they discuss"wild ideas" that eventually became airplanes, space shuttles, computers, e-mail and microwave ovens? THE ANCHOR - Fall/Winter 1998


~-~======'~<=~==~> tk /tad. ...

In the first years of this century, organizations at Michigan State Normal School wrote paragraphs with their pictures in the college yearbook, the Aurora. The 1900, 1901 and 1902 yearbooks reflect the thoughts and aims of our founders: "This organization claims to be strictly up to date, as it is purely of twentieth century growth, having been in existence only a few months. Though it numbers less than most of the similar organizations in the college, yet for loyalty and harmony among its members none can excel it. Its aim is, first of all, social and literary culture, but we count not least among the results obtained, the bond of sympathy among its members, which we trust will prove something more than a pleasant memory, when we leave our alma mater. We can only predict its future from its brief past. From the fidelity of its members to its interests, its high ideals and lofty aims, we feel assured that it is destined to become a permanent and an ennobling element in the college. Long may it live!" (1900) "Although our sorority is not as yet strong in numbers, the bonds of friendship are equal to the sororities of greater numbers. Alpha Sigma Tau sprang into existence in 1899. Its aim has even been good scholarship and true culture. Our social gatherings have been not only pleasant, but we believe, beneficial - and will always remain with us among the pleasant memories of our alma mater. To those who may, in the future, join our mystic circle, we extend the wish that they may find as much enjoyment in its associations as we have found in the past." (1901) "We have but one life to live, and we all wish to make the most of it. The years of our college life have brought us into a true realization of the fact that a friend is the noblest gift that life can bring. We have satisfactorily provide to ourselves that true friendship and catholicity of culture in sorority life, is "worth while". Our hearts' desire is that those who are left to carry on the work of next year, may be the means of forming links which time and change cannot sever." (1902)

Do we, who also stand on the verge of a new century, with so many more opportunities, so much more information and a plethora of problems, have any idea of the advances that our new century will bring?


Access the Internet Most of us know the story of the initial organization of Alpha Sigma Tau. These young women met on the evening of November 4, 1899 at the home of Ruby Pratt on Huron Street in Ypsilanti, Mich., to organize a club or sorority. Their campus, Michigan State Normal College (now Eastern Michigan University) ,was at that time home to three other sororities. On that November evening, the name Alpha Sigma Tau was chosen for their sorority and purple and gold were selected as the new sorority's colors. Shortly thereafter, a second meeting was held at the home of Mrs. Depew on Forest A venue where Helene and Adriance Rice, Eva 0' Keefe and Harriet Marx roomed. This meeting was a party; the rooms were festively decorated in purple and gold, and even the cake was golden with purple icing. At this party, these collegiate women decided that the next day they would introduce the newly-born sorority to the student body and the community. They all attended chapel together wearing purple and gold. Imagine their surprise and chagrin when members of another sorority informed them that Alpha Sigma Tau had appropriated their colors. Obviously, emerald green was quickly chosen as a replacement for purple. Check out the AST Homepage on the WorldWide Web. Visitors to the web ite will enjoy reading about AET happening and will find out the latest information on sorority events.
