More and more we reahze that the Jordan spirit binds us all into a unity of kindly feeling and of affection one for the other. In our fields of endeavor and especially in our chosen field of music there are broad established concepts as to what our general purposes must be for the broadening of our own horizons. We must keep these ideals before us constantly. Our one hope is that soon we shall be able to join our forces at home and bring into fruition our great- est desires and ambitions. May blessings be upon you always!

The subsequent hsting of these shows and alhed activities is indicative of the work and speaks well for Jordan. Following the list- ing of camp shows there is presented an additional summary of allied war activities. CAMP SHOWS — A TOTAL TO MAY 10, 1944 of " 565 " Presented at FT.

The first meeting of this season was certainly pleasant. There was a lot of getting re-acquainted to be done after summer. Enjoying games, refreshments and a definitely festive air, the Mu Phis got together again. September twenty-eight . . . Were hostesses for a reception honoring women students of Jordan Conservatory. We proudly presented piano music by Dorothy Munger, marimba and piano numbers by Imogene Pierson and Lucille Wagner, a group of viola solos by Doris Miller and songs by Mildred Reimer accompanied by Mae Engle. Around the refreshment table, bedecked with flowers and purple candles burning in lyre-shaped candalabra, we became better acquainted with our guests. November thirteenth . . . Mu Phi celebrated its fortieth birthday! Kappa initiated Mary Euphrat, Winifred Brown, and Maxine Henderson — performing the well-loved ceremony in the chapter room. We enjoyed dinner at the Marott Hotel followed by a program by these new members . . . The death in November of Mr. Sterling, one of our founders, saddened us, but we are grateful to have had his loving guidance for forty years and hope to carry on the high ideals he held for Mu Phi Epsilon. We participated in the annual Noel Fest in December with the other fra- ternal organizations. Rather than exchange gifts among ourselves, we sent presents to the Day Care Centers. The joint meeting with the Alumnae and Patronesses was held on February eighth when Mrs. Henry Schricker, first lady of Indiana, was our hostess. We pre- sented, with Sigma Alpha Iota and Phi Beta, a Victory Musicale on March seventh. On April eighteenth our scholarship student, Mary Euphrat, presented the pro- gram for our reception and tea for our Mothers and Patronesses. Spring initiation and Patroness installation was held on May sixteenth and our new officers assumed their offices on May thirtieth. June thirteenth ... the annual June Frolic will bring the year ' s activities to a close. PHI SIGMA MU ETA CHAPTER Eta Chapter started another interesting and eventful year by giving a re- ception for the women students of Jordan on September twenty-first. Participat- ing in the program were Marion Thompson, contralto; Jo Marilyn Brown, ' cellist; Mary Jane Harper, clarinetist; and Mildred Reimer, soprano. We had planned a weiner roast in honor of our new pledges for Sunday, October twenty-fourth in Garfield Park. Since it rained the entire day, we met at the home of Mildred Reimer. Sunday, November seventh was another red letter day. Initiation was held at seven o ' clock in the morning and was followed by a breakfast. Our new initiates were: Winifred Brown, Fort Wayne, pianist; Mary Euphrat, Fort Wayne, soprano; Mary Jane Kent, Sandborn, pianist; and Muriel Oeth, Evansville, pianist. We ' re really glad to have them with us. We also want to welcome Mary Margaret Lee, pianist, who was pledged on December seventh, and Jane Jeffries from Logan, West Virginia. Founder ' s Day was celebrated with a Christmas party at Elma Baker ' s home. The musical program consisted of solos by Muriel Oeth, pianist; Jo Marilyn Brown, ' cellist; and Mildred Reimer, soprano. It was good to have one of our old members, Jerry Mohler, back with us for the party. Jerry is quite enthused over her teach- ing position at Waldron. Our congratulations go to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gwynne (Mrs. Gwynne was formerly June Floyd) who were married on February seventeenth while Bob was home on furlough. We were sorry to see one of our new initiates leave us so soon, but we are happy that Billie Brown was fortunate enough to join her husband, Keith Brown, stationed in Georgia. Billie left school at the end of the first semester. Come June and it will be time to say so long to Maxine Snell, Maxine Hen- derson, and Ruth Pearson, who will finish their work here at Jordan. Eta Chapter will miss you girls and we are proud to claim you as sisters of Phi Sigma Mu. We would like to take this time to express our thanks to our president, Doris Miller, and her staff of officers. They have all worked hard and have been very successful in doing their part in upholding the standards and ideals of Phi Sigma Mu. SIGMA ALPHA IOTA ZETA CHAPTER NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL MUSIC SORORITY Sigma Alpha Iota, the oldest music fraternity for women, was established in 1903 at the University School of Music, Ann Arbor, Michigan, by seven women whose aim was to give moral and material aid to the members of the group during the course of their musical education. SIGMA ALPHA IOTA OBJECTIVES ARE: To form bodies of representative women who shall by their influence and their musical interest uphold the highest ideals of a musical education. To raise the standards of productive musical work among the women students of colleges, conservatories, and universities. To further the development of music in America and promote a stronger bond of musical interest and understanding between foreign countries and America. To give inspiration and material aid to its members. To organize the social life of its members as a contributing factor to their educational program. To co-operate whole-heartedly with the ideals and aims of the Alma Mater. To adhere to the high standards of American citizenship and democracy. Sigma Alpha Iota started its musical year with the monthly musicales on which each member performs during the year. The high-light of the SAI calendar was the visit of our National President, Kathleen Davison, December 9 and 10. Mrs. Davison honored us by attending our Incorporation Day Celebration at the Spink-Arms Hotel, at which time she gave us a view of the war effort of SAI as a national group. We were pleased to add nine lovely pledges to our SAI family at this meeting. Sigma Alpha Iota, in collaboration with Mu Phi Epsilon and Phi Beta, went " all out " in presenting the Victory Musicale in March. The fraternity year was brought to an end by initiation services and banquet at the Hotel Lincoln in April, and election of officers for the coming year. DELAWARE DORMITORY Poor old " Benjie " has been gone some years now, but as long as there are plenty of girls in his house I imagine his spirit will always enjoy coming back to visit the old homestead. Again this year he made his annual " ghost walk " which can be verified by any freshman — particularly Dorothy Sorg. Poor Dorothy — that incident has certainly left its mark on her. Anyone who knows Dorothy will agree that of her many striking features, perhaps the most outstanding is her feet. You see, they are not just ordinary feet. They ' re more like small boats. While she was working in the library the first semester, we heard that she was caught with her feet on the desk — shoes off! Don ' t worry, Dorothy, it pays to have a firm foundation. Wee Doris Miller, a senior this year, has many responsibilities thrown upon her. As head usher she is usually scrambling around hunting for ushers. Work like hers should make her frail. Another senior, Betty Lou, is one of the glamour gals of the campus. She receives the largest percent of all the telephone calls. Oh, yes, some people have all the luck. We are anxiously waiting to see which will win out in the end — the Army, Navy or Air Corps. If you haven ' t noticed a mournful far-away look in Carolyn Burd ' s eyes — notice now. There is a good reason too. She has acquired a lovely diamond and plans to be married in June. There has been quite some change made in the dormitory since the beginning of the second semester. With the arrival of new students the rooms became more crowded so a double decker bed was placed in one of the smaller rooms. Mrs. Woody and Alice Jean both were wondering, " Will she fall out of bed tonight? " Muriel Oeth makes a very efficient substitute for Mrs. Woody. " Peck ' s Bad Boy " is Martha. We know you mean well with all your little tricks, so we are not mad at you. If you have ever seen her in a skirt, you will agree that she can look feminine. She seems to prefer slacks and blue-jeans. Muriel ' s good friend and room-mate (also the Pollyanna of the dorm) is Dot Steinert. She always has a smile for everyone. Someone a great deal like Steinert is Rowena Lackey. We have all depended on her soothing back rubbings to help us go to sleep. As tired as she might be, she never says no. Judging from the array of pictures on her dresser, it seems she prefers the Air Corps to the other branches of the service. One of the most faithful listeners of the symphony is Peg Warner. She can almost always be found on Sunday afternoon in the basement of the dorm listen- ing to the New York Philharmonic. She has quite a collection of records, too. Peggy ' s room-mate of last semester was Billie Brown. Billie has left us to be with her husband down in the deep south. We also miss Jeanne Havens who was in the dorm until February. We don ' t blame you for preferring your sister to us — as long as we get to see you often. Poor Marilyn Fisher. If it ' s not one thing, it ' s a million others. She had not come back from mid-semester vacation more than a week before she was taken to the hospital for an appendectomy. We hear she ' s getting along nicely. Another one to leave us is Betty Roberts or " Queenie " . She stayed out this semester in order to help her grandmother, but hopes to be back on a full schedule next year. The new-comers to the dorm are Billie Cole, Edith Mae Brizius, Jane Jeffries and Elsie Ruth Young. Orchids to Mrs. Woody. She certainly makes a super house-mother. PENNSYLVANIA DORMITORY This year there are thirteen gals who Uve at 1213 N. Pennsylvania. If you aren ' t superstitious, just ask Mrs. Page, housemother whether thirteen isn ' t an unlucky number or not. The first ones to gossip about are the frosh. First, we meet Florine, one of the swellest gals ever to enter our dorm, who is always worrying and belittling herself for no justifiable reason whatever. With her talent, ability and good disposition, she never need worry about getting ahead in this world. Incidentally, she gets practically all the mail around here. Willie is our little problem child. Problem number one is getting her out of bed in the morning, and problem number two is getting her into bed at night. She doodles all the time, too. But the worst problem of all is that she has periodical controversies with the man in her life. In Harold ' s case, love and career don ' t mix. Really, though, Willie is a good kid, affords us all a laugh when we need it, and makes darn swell cocoa. Bert keeps us all in a dither as to what Purdue man will show up next — every week a different one. But confidentially, her heart is out to sea with a cer- tain little (?) sailor from ye old home town. That takes us to Helen, whose heart belongs to a " daddy " in the Air Corps. Her vocal chords gave out with a nice war whoop the day she heard that Griff was just next door in Illinois. Helen is the one who faithfully composes at least one letter per day to her big wonderful air cadet. And the smallest of all our freshmen girls is Connie, who is hoarding a pre- cious pair of nylons. How we envy her of that possession! I have a feeling that those stockings are being saved for a special purpose — namely Merrill of Uncle Sam ' s army. We must all look our best for the servicemen, you know. Janice is our art student. She keeps us supplied with pin-up girls — and boys — from John Herron. We especially liked " Agnes. " Jody, as we all know, is the girl with the handsome Midshipman at I. U. Medical School. We all envy her plenty for having her man so close and handy. They really make a dandy couple. Chick, at present, has more important things to occupy her mind than men. Those big brown eyes of hers really have plenty of that old spark though. Frances is sporting a very beautiful diamond this year. At the present, her Cecil is at San Diego, California. That makes their romance a long distance affair, but with the use of pen, ink and air mail stamps, it is continued with a large degree of success. Mary Jane is the little gal who keeps the other little gals in the front room in line. What with Mary V. embracing an 8 x 10 photograph and Susie eagerly hugging a much read letter, there is a definite need for someone who can keep a cool head under such circumstances. Sometime soon, however, some disturbing influence will no doubt enter her life, causing her to be just as utterly insane as all people in love. Now for a few more details about the affairs of our front room girls. Colleen has not encountered her " ideal " as yet, but there are several factors which are perplexing. Her sales resistance is quite high, thereby making a certain salesman in England have a pretty hard time. ■k Betty Sue is a person with songs for every occasion. " Good-bye, Sue " and " He ' s My Guy " are among the most appropriate. He must truly be a swell guy, too, from all reports. And last, but not least, there is our own Mary Virginia Turner (the genius). She wears a pair of silver wings originally belonging to a flier in England. At the time of this writing, however, Jim might be on his way home for a much-needed rest. It is unanimously wished that he will make a speedy return. ( JORDAN CONSERVE Earl L.

Stone Sergeant Norris Swadener Private Paul E. Taylor SOCIAL EVENTS AT JORDAN The new year opened with the usual hustle and bustle of new classes, new teachers, and new students. After the first few weeks were over and the freshmen and new students bega n to act as if they belonged here, we began to have a few activities to make them really feel at home. Before making them undergo all the horrors of " Hell Week " the various sororities on the campus gave teas in honor of the new students. At all of them everyone had a grand time and really became acquainted. After several delays our Freshman " Hell Week " finally got off to a belated start. We really had great fun and a large number of " horribly " funny sights around here. As the Freshmen party was held near Halloween, the Student Hall was deco- rated according with pumpkins and corn stalks. It was really very spooky with all its lights dimmed by goblins and witches. At the beginning of the party we played games, went on a scavenger hunt and danced to the juke-box rented for the occasion. We also were provided with entertainment by one of our former schoolmates, John Detroy, who played the piano for us — old tunes, new tunes and some of his own compositions. To cap the climax we had a ghost walk in the 1116 building for our dear little freshmen. Such a bevy of shrieks, wails and ghostly sounds has not been heard since the old days when the building was a hospital. We ended the party with doughnuts and cider, and everyone voted it a great success. We are very privileged to have Mr. Victor Kolar with us this year. The orchestra worked very hard on the Christmas concert which was presented at the Scottish Rite Cathedral on December 14. Those who heard the concert will prob- ably agree that it was one of the greatest successes we have ever had. Nellie Jones, Patricia Rheinhardt and Mary Spalding were the soloists and all did a very excel- lent job of performing. The Jordan Choir sang " Silent Night " at the conclusion of the program, adding a perfect finishing touch to an excellent concert. A reception was held at the Harrison Home in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Kolar, Mr. and Mrs. Mirovitch and Mrs. Wagner after the Christmas Concert. Mrs. Lautner and Mrs. Hedley poured tea, and the Harrison dorm girls served. One of our students had the honor of being chosen as soloist with the Indian- apolis Symphony Orchestra at the first Young Musician ' s Concert. Mary Virginia Turner was the artist and she played the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. The concert was a great success and we were very proud of Mary Virginia ' s performance. The Jordan-Civic Opera Guild presented " Pirates of Penzance " at the Civic Theatre under the direction of Mr. Charles Hedley in February and it was a real success. Many Jordan students were in the cast. A WEEK OF HELL Hints of " Hell Week " and its miseries popped up during the first six weeks of school, and finally, after several post- ponements, the dreaded, but exciting time came for all " green " freshmen to bow down to teachers and upper- classmen. As usual many embarrass- ing and funny incidents happened to the frosh, but they all took it good naturedly. It is too bad that we all have such colorful garments, as the girls took ad- vantage of this factor and chose for us the worst combinations possible. But did they stop with this gesture? No! The hair must match the style of the garment. In the case of Wilma Byfield, for instance, they just couldn ' t seem to make her hair look terrible enough, so after much debate, they finally decided upon pigtails. Some were permitted to wear an up-sweep — you know — the kind with pin curls. Not being satisfied with the punishment they had already inflicted upon us, the upper-classmen in the two dorms planned a special treat for their new friends. They not only made us do their dishes, make their beds, praise them and climb the stairs backwards, but they placed wet macaroni and cornflakes in our beds and pepper in our pillows. To complete this beautiful evening, we were awakened at 3:00 a. m., blind-folded, taken into the hall through more cornflakes and maca- roni, and then paddled with a board. Duff and Byfield were honored by ironing clothes for the upper-classmen at this unearthly hour. Steinkeller, better known as " Stinky " or " Lilly " , looked as though she hadn ' t had the time to dress properly at home, and so came in her pajamas, carrying her lingerie in a bucket. Presumably she meant to dress on the way or at the Alma Mater. Ed Ferrell, John Goldsborough and Dick Moody were all victims of a smeary paint job done by that vixen, Marion Thompson. Maybe she thought they were too neat looking for the occasion. p?5f ' !;:; gp » »r i - i.f - Bert Asa seemed to represent a butcher and a baseball player in her garb, and Helen Hoffman made a good hula dancer in hers. Of course there were other queer sights about the campus that memorable week. Now the freshmen are racking their brains to think of something suitably horrible for next year ' s crop. HERE AND THERE AT JORDAN Women . . . Women . . . and more Women . . . Such terms as . . . ration stamps . . . got a letter . . . rubber shortage . . . got a letter . . . camp show . . . got a letter . , . blood donations . . . got a letter . . . buy a bond . . . got a letter . . . duty at the service club . . . got a letter . . . men home on furlough . . . got a letter . . a casual date, something unusual . . . but bet- ter still . . . Today, I got a letter. So runs the average conversation at 1204 N. Delaware and surrounding campus, day in and day out. GONE ARE THE DAYS OF: jam sessions . . . men on the campus and in classes . . dates . . . cars with gasoline and tires . . . chocolate candy bars and chewing gum ... a gang in the basement . . . the sound of a challenging game of ping-pong going on . an inspiring and globe-trotting Philharmonic choir . . and in general . . the good old days at Jordan. But, old faces, new faces, no men, some men — there still is an abundance of romance at Jordan. Newest sparkler to be added to the list is that of Peg Hester, one assuming that the Marines have landed — one in particular, whose name appears to be Bob. Mary Alice Dilling beams almost as much as does her ring from Louis Mader — latest address, India. A certain Texas man from the tank corps surprised Frances Logan this fall by offering her a beautiful stone — p.s. She accepted. June Floyd — rather Gwynne — has both rings now. She and Bob tied the well known knot in February. Ping-pong expert Sally Green is planning a June wedding — a service man, to be sure. Jeanne Havens now sports a pair of silver wings, as does Carolyn Burd and Virginia Prosser. The Air Corps is very much in evidence at school and in the conversations, especially when such people as Mary Turner, Susie Nicholson and Betty Jean Miller get together for a chat. You ' d never guess it, but they all live in the clouds. It doesn ' t take much for Betty Jean M. to hop a train and go clear across the country. After Christmas vacation, her theme song was, has been, and still is " Deep in the Heart of Texas " , where she journeyed to see her cadet. Belle Oren, of " Belle ' s Sharps and Flats " fame has become a very special favorite comrade of Jim Edington, now of the Navy. We ' ve heard that he calls her weekly. Everyone at the Pennsylvania St. dorm lived in anxious waiting for the day when M. Turner ' s Air Corps Lieutenant would come home from England — mean- while those letters kept her all in a dither. Speaking of letters, the bulletin board in the 1204 building is always crowded with the letters from the boys in service and what a welcome sight they are. Al- most as good as a visit from former classmates. Peggy Million also dreams of far off places, England in particular — where resides at the present one crooner from the Medical Division. Peggy went to Ne- braska during vacation to meet his parents. A nice romance at the beginning of the year — frosh Virginia Prosser and singer Ed Ferrell. It seems to have definitely faded with the return of Ed ' s former love, Anne Eberhardt. Happy-go-lucky Marion Thompson, morale booster for Jordan school for girls, and John Goldsborough can find much to talk about — horses, chickens, cows — anything domestic — sounds chummy to me. Errol Grandy is at the height of his happiness now, with three women to entertain and jive with him. They keep the basement so hot with song it fairly sizzles. Symphony concerts this year have donned a new appearance with so many women filling chairs, and also the addition of conservatory girls as ushers. Said one patron, ' T never dreamed it would come to this. " Just what did he mean? String class this year brought out promising talent. Bill Breedlove and Marion Thompson both proved themselves to be virtuosi on all instruments. Miss Thomp- son was even heard saying that she was considering offering her talent on the violin to the Salvation Army. So comes to an end another year of school, with everyone dashing hither, thither and yon. Doing double duty on all jobs — working overtime, undertime and in-between-times to fill the places of those who are gone. Perhaps the hard work will be good for all of us. To all reading this, especially the boys who are gone from the school, may we all say that we miss you, and we live for the day when everything has returned to normal and school is as it should be.
