AL-PHA SIGMA CH Officers President Randolph Mayer Vice President Ruth Watkins Secretary-Treasurer Annie Laurie Stallcup The rolls of Alpha Sigma Chi — the honorary chemistry fraternity organized on the campus in 1931 — in- clude all second year students of this subject, provided they have been studious enough to maintain a " C " plus average in all their courses and fortunate enough to receive the unanimous vote of all mem- bers. The group meets every Friday morning for round-table discussions on the subject dearest to their scien- tific hearts and many interesting speakers have addressed them on these occasions. Outstanding amoung these was the eminent Dr. Keen, who discoursed on Cosmic Rays to the further enlightment and enjoyment of the fraternity. One of their own members, Richard Knight, is now doing research work on the rather overwhelming subject of converting protein into forms that can be used in the body, as preparation for an address which he will deliver at the Louisiana Academy of Science at their next meeting. In addition to the interest shown in purely academic work, the organization will also sponsor an industrial tour of Louisiana and Mississippi, by means of which first hand, practical knowledge can be obtained. Chemical compounds and formulas do not claim the entire attention of the members, however, and in their lighter moments they give excellent picnics and informal parties, under the sponsorship of faculty members Dr. J. B. Entrikin and Dr. L. A. Thayer. The Alpha Sigma Chis evidence unusual inteiest in a particular notebook, not concerning chemistry Members Billy Mims Allums Charles Armistead T. N.

After its members have suc- ceeded in passing the rigid entrance requirements of this last retreat of learning and wisdom, they certainly are entitled to a long rest upon their laurels. This year Alpha Chis grew so scarce on the campus that the race appeared threatened with extinction, only four members surviving last year ' s graduation, which seriously depleted their ranks. However, after several potential candidates had suc- ceeded in struggling through their mid-semester exams, the fraternity ' s prospects became brighter and fourteen new names were added to the roster. The addition of this new blood was a source of pride both to the organization and to the lucky new members who now have proof of the fact that they possess the best grades on the campus. Alpha Chi meets only occasionally and always for some specific purpose. Their chief activities are electing new members, awarding a leather, gold-engraved notebook to the most deserving freshman, and sponsoring a chapel program dedicated to their patron goddess of Wisdom. Since the founding of the fraternity in 1925, only the most intelligent and most active students have been eligible for mem- bership, and the society can truthfully boast that it comprises the cream of the crop, scholastically speaking. The signal honor of receiving the Alpha Chi notebook goes this year to Charles Knight on the basis of his excellent scholastic record and participation in extra-curricular activities. The Alpha Chis spend the remainder of their time upholding their reputation as the smart set of the cam- pus, and serving as a model for all the little Alpha Sigma Pi ' s, whose dearest wish is to be an Alpha Chi when they grow up.

Although it has long been a universal custom for upperclassmen to look down on the lowly Sophomore and the even lowlier Freshman there are a limited few worthy of recognition for their outstanding scho- lastic work. That these few should not go unrewarded, Alpha Sigma Pi, an organization devoted ex- clusively to the aforementioned Sophomores and Freshmen, was created eight years ago, with the simul- taneous inauguration of twenty chapters at the leading colleges of our fair country. Under the spon- sorship of Mrs. A. R. Campbell, the local group has become one of the leading campus honorary fra- ternities and has earned the respect and approbation of all. " Clever Initiations for Clever Underclassmen " is apparently the motto of the Alpha Sigma Pis, for the fame of their pre-initiation ceremony is far reaching, and justly so. ALPHA SIGMA PI
