fdifferent, but not separate' Two-year-old Kappa Delian Shri social :lub did all the usual social club things - marticipated in Sing Song, competed in in- ramurals and conducted socials. j But most members thought the club of ibout 40 had a stronger emphasis on ser- zice and friendship than most clubs did. But, said Athena Stevens, junior from Yoakum and club treasurer, "lt's not like ave're trying to be separate. We think we're 1 little bit different, but not so different ghat welre not a club, too." Charter member Amy Withers, junior from Fillon, Mont., said she believed members were closer because the club was founded only the year before. "We know where our roots are," she added. Those roots lay, Stevens said, in the spring of 1980 with a group of women con- cerned about the number of students being rejected by clubs they pledged. But this year, Withers said, Kadies had to cope with conflict over whether to ac- cept every woman who wanted to be in the club or to reject some "like all the other clubs do." In the end, she said, the club ac- FRONT ROW: Sharon Mitchell, Anita Young, Juane Heflin, Sandara Kitt. ROW 2: Robbie McCauley, Brenda Henry, Elizabeth Latham.

Denise Dodson, senior office administra- tion major and KDS secretary, introduced the club to the children's home where her parents were houseparents. During the Christmas season the social club sent gifts to one child the home's staff identified as having particular needs, Withers said. In the spring about half the clubls members spent a weekend with the children. Stevens said the trip taught club members. "We didn't realize how lucky we weref' she said. "Those kids have been through so much that we don't even think about." In February Kadies turned their atten- tion from the young to the old. Club members made and delivered personalized Valentine cards to the residents of Happy Haven Nursing Home. Through the year KDS members min- gled their service projects with social and school activities. After Sing Song the in- itials "KDS" became almost inter- changeable with "M8cMs,' as the club per- formed as the candies that melted in your heart, not in your hand. Stevens said the women were excited about participating in Sing Song. Although she said members would have loved to have won, "our main thing right now is to show that we are a club, and we can compete." However, Stevens said close friendships, rather than intramurals or Sing Song, were the most important aspect of club for her and for most Kadies. "We just enjoy being with each other," she concluded. This page: top - Members of Kadies practice for Sing Songj bottom - Kappa Delian Shri social club members.
