Beta lota Chapter Zeta Tau Alpha was founded October 15, 1898, at Vir- ginia State Normal School, Farmville, Virginia. Today the sorority has 70 active chapters with an approxi- mate membership of 10,000. A scholarship loan fund, established in 1912, is maintained from which money is loaned for educational purposes. In 1928 the Zeta Tau Alpha health center was built in Currin Valley near Marion, Virginia, in honor of the founders and the mother state. Beta Iota chapter was the first sorority established on the Centenary College campus, May 6, 1927. This past year its main objective has been to establish a new lodge, in place of the old one and much work has been done along these lines. Their Mothers ' Club and alumnae organization have been particularly helpful. With Mrs. A. M. Shaw as hostess, the Zetas count among their more prominent alumnae Mrs. George S. Sexton, Mrs. Leroy Morwood, and Miss Margaret Jane Taylor, a Northwestern University beauty. Outstanding wearers of the steel grey and blue at Centenary are Shirley Baird, coed vice-presi- dent of the Student Body, president of Pan-Hel- lenic, and vice-president of the Senior Class; Doris Marshall, Miss Centenary of 1937, secretary of the Junior Class and president of the Dramatic Club; Jo Beth Nelson, Band Sweetheart and fea- tured artist; Helen Finke, beauty and president of the Maroon Jackets; and Betty Heath, secretary- treasurer of the Freshman Class. 1. The Zetas hitch their wagon ro a star in the person of Shirley Baird. 2. Exactly what this is supposed to represent we couldn ' t say but they do make a pretty picture. 3. Sweet Doris Marshall smiles for the little birdie. 4. Sweetheart of the Band, ]o Beth Nelson, does likewise, with equally pleasing etlect.

ota Gamma Chapter Chi Omega was lounded at the University oi Arkansas, April 5, 1895. Originating in the South, it has since spread to all parts of the country, being truly national with 91 active chapters. Among the varied phases oi the Chi Omega program are the National Achieve- ment Award, a gold medal to be presented annually to an American woman oi notable achievement. Each active chapter awards annually a prize to the woman student in its college who excels in the work of the department of social service. In 1930, Chi Omega presented to the University of Arkan- sas, the Mother chapter, a magnificent Greek open air theater. Iota Gamma chapter was established in 1928; has proved itself worthy of the place it occupies in campus life. For its clever football tavern at Hcmecoming the sorority was awarded the cup for the best decorated lodge. The celebration of their tenth birthday, the organizing of a Mothers ' Club, and the planting of red bud trees along the path between South Hall and the Arts Building as a gift to the college are among their accomplish- ments as an organization. Prominent alumni include Miss Mary Mims, Mrs. Eakin Wheless, Mrs. Charlton Lyons, Mrs. C. P. Munday, and Mrs. Greene Smitherman. Among the Chi Omegas who have held places of leadership on the campus are: Virginia Doyle, president of Alpha Chi, treasurer of the Student Body, most versatile girl; Edna Earle Richardson, cheerleader and Miss Centenary; Grayce Ellen Slattery, cutest girl; Mary Jo Sellers, vice-presi- dent of Alpha Chi; Beatrice Carlton, president of Alpha Sigma Pi; and Adelaide Boggs, a featured singer with the Kollege Kapers show. 1.
