Something "This year was the funnest year I ever had in a club," said Dita Keese, president of GATA. "We tried to make GATA a club of opportunities for all the girls. We had all kinds of different events throughout the year so everyone could get involved," Dita said. "We had so many girls want to pledge this year that we even created a new officer to be in charge of rushes." Fall was busy for GATA as it was for all clubs. More than 600 alumnae attended the Homecoming breakfast at the Fairway Oaks Pavillion. Four women represented GATA on the Homecoming Court: Lana Hall, Robin Igo,joa Pyle and Dita. Another fall proiect for the club was the garden in front of the Administration Building. The garden was in memory of Carolyn Daniels, who died of cancer in 1982. Mrs. Daniels was a GATA sponsor for more than Z0 years, Dita said, and the club wanted to do something special for her. it Monster Mash" was the theme for the fall grub, Dita AT said. "G A s are so much fun because you never 11 for everyone know what will happen at them." Spring found GATA preparing for Sing Song, an event that had become almost sacred to the club. The women began preparing early in the semester and spent hours and hours each day practicing to produce their show. GATA didnt win this year, but they got something more out of it. Dita said. "Sing Song was fun," Dita said. "We came from winning the year before to losing this year, but that didn't matter because we had a blast doing it," she said. "Even though we didnt win a trophy we won a lot more than that: friendship, unity and the joy of watching 100 girls give 100 percent for one common goal," she said. The spring grub was a Hawaiian theme complete with a beach and an old "Gidget Goes Hawaiian" film. San An- tonio was the site for the spring social at the Hilton Inn. One event Dita said she would always remember was the night she was kidnapped by the pledges, handcuffed and blindfolded, and held for ransom. "They took me riding forever and were holding me for ransom that all their punishments would be dropped," Dita said. "Then they handcuffed me to the lamps in front of Sherrod on North 10th. I yelled loud enough, and Phil Boone and Charlie Self heard me. After they quit laughing they got a saw and cut me loose from the lamp, but it was much later before I got the handcuffs off." . "Club for me, was a chance to be around a bunch of girls C I wouldn't have known otherwise," Dita said. "It gave me E the chance to see girls grow socially and spiritually." e 8 jonathan Gibbs cs FRONT ROW: Sally Gary, Lisa McVey, Debbie Siddens, Laura William . i . s' is j I ii ei A p s, Cindy Holley, judy Arnot, Laurie Wolford, CaraSue Miller.
