Initiate: Claude Philips. Rush week was a very good success for Alpha Eta. The program cons isted of two smokers and a party. The alu mni came out on two occasions and helped the chapter out w ith pledging. This is the first year for open rush at Howard. At th e first of the year, it was decided by the chapter to g ive a social party of some kind each month. Usually there was a dance g iven, since we have several musicians in the chapter. Harold Hardin, one of our pledges, plays the saxaphone, another the trombone, and one the piano. Thanksgiving, the pledges entertained the upperclassmen with a dinner at the house. It was a nice affair and the pledges did a very good job of putting the party over. During homecoming week, which is the annu al Birmingham-Southern-Howard game, we had many alumni to v isit th e chapter. An alumni banquet was held at the school cafeteria, and afterwards everyone came over · to th e house. Intramural sports at Howard are about to get und er way. In D ecember we played football, winning two games and losi ng one. Each fraternity is allowed two 32
sh teams in the intramural sports, one for indoor baseball and one for basketball. Alpha Eta hopes to come out on top in these events. Paul Cox, a p ledge, plays on the basketball team.
