SIGMA LAMBDA SIGMA
Sigma Lambda Sigma, the senior literary society, was started in the fall of 1928 by Miss
Hazel Harrington, instructor in English, and four senior girls: Mary Wilson, Jennie Grossman,
Pauline Krezir, and Iris Winklepeck, who took a very active interest in literature.
Sigma, Lambda, and Sigma are the Latin names for the three letters S.L.S. representing
Senior Literary Society. The constitution was drawn up and eight other girls were invited to
join, it being strictly a senior club. Each year the club members elect from the Junior class of
that year their successors, who must have a good scholastic standing and must show a decided
interest in literature.
Two meetings are held each month, on the second and fourth Mondays. At each of these
meetings one member of the club reports on the life and writings of some contemporary author.
One of 'the club's purposes is to purchase several new outstanding books for the school library.
This year some very interesting meetings were held at the various homes of the fourteen mem'
bers. Such authors a Cather, Morley, Deeping, Poe, Bromfield, Wharton, etc., were reported
on and discussed.

At the beginning of the year, when questionnaires were sent out asking the students what
new clubs they wanted, some eighty said they wanted a writers' club. The Writers' Club was
organized as a result of this need. To be sure, we did not get eighty members. Some were too shy
or fwe suspectj too lazy to join, so we started with a modest dozen. Our meetings were extremely
informal and we wrote whatever and whenever we felt like it. However, we had accumulated a
fair amount of good material by spring. Feeling that we needed a more formal organization with a
view toward a more permanent club, we reorganized the club in April, renaming it Escritoire,
and inviting in promising junors and sophomores. The Club now numbers about twenty, the new
members being Bill Brown, jean Bellows, Jane Ewers, john Ackenhusen, Vern Beckwith, Betty
Henke, David Kahn, Betty Soper, Marie Moore, Eris Jacobsen, Eleanor Howard, Elmer Reil.
With this nucleus we hope that Escritoire will go on to finer things next year and
become a vital part of the English program.

The Jane Addams Chapter of the National Honor Society
We chose to name our Honor Society the "Jane Addams Chapter," because she was such
a great humanitarian and is known for her part in the life of democracy in America
Mr. Harrod is the faculty advisor. Great tribute should go to him for the part he has played
in making a success of this society.
With a beautiful and impressive ceremony the usual yearly induction takes place in the
spring. The students are chosen for their democratic qualities, scholarship, service, character, and
leadership, which are carried out by the theme of the induction.
This year's officers are:
