" With this chant eight sleepy eyed girls were awakened early on the norning of Old Gold Day and were thus informed of their selection for Theta Sigma Phi, national honorary and pro- fessional fraternity for women in journalism. The donning of the purple and green pledge ribbons that morning and the gold pin in the shape of the matrix at initiation signified at their membership in a national organization maintaining 48 student chapter and 35 alumnae groups over the country. Founded at the Uni- versity of Washington in 1909, its members are chosen for professional interest in journalism and for proven ability in the field. Sigma chapter, at DePauw, has the unusual distinction of being the only student chapter located at a school which possesses neither a department or a school of journalism as such. The twelve active members and eight pledges were chosen for their work on the staffs of student publications and for their interest in continuing in journalism. We are responsible for publishing the Old Gold Day and May Day editions of The DePauw. Our year was climaxed during Matrix Mile- stones Week, when Sigma entertained out- standing women on campus and the faculty at its Matrix Table banquet. Our program for the year also included the entertainment of speakers who have been working in the field of journalism. We attempted a closer relationship with other Indiana chap- ters, and sent delegates to the annual conven- tion , held in Milwaukee in 1948, and in Dallas in 1949. These delegates learned of the active interest in Theta Sig affairs taken by members, and of the fine alumnae program the group maintains. 123

We of Alpha Delta Sigma, national advertis- ing honorary, number in our ranks certain mem- bers of the publications ' business staffs ' , art and economics majors, and other students showing a definite interest and ability in the field of ad- vertising. Twice each year our ranks are swelled by the initiation of pledges, who, after a rigor- ous semester of pledge training, are rewarded with full-fledged membership. The Walter P. Cole chapter is unique in being the only chapter of Alpha Delta Sigma located in a liberal arts college. The activities of our fifteen man chapter in- clude working with the local on advertising problems and aiding the Chamber of Com- merce in their yuletide decoration of the city streets of Greencastle. The chapter also serves the student body by helping bring prominent businessmen in the field of advertising to the chapel speakers. Once a year we mighty men of Alpha DeltaSigma adjourn to Blackstock Stadium to match our athletic prowess against our arch- rival, Sigma Delta Chi, in a titanic gridiron tussle. This year, however, due to adverse weather conditions, insufficient manpower, cir- cumstances beyond our control, and the aliena- tion of Lady Luck, we were forced to yield our pigskin title to our pencil pushing counterparts. In the interests of promoting higher scholarship on the campus we annually award the Alpha Delta Sigma Scholarship Trophy to the men ' s organization with the highest grade average. Life, however, is not all " work and no play " for us potential advertising executives. The chapter convenes at least once a month for discussions and lectures on pertinent subjects. This year we started a tradition which we hope will live on for many years after our passing. We refer, of course, to the informal party which was held by Theta Sigma Phi, women, s journalistic honorary, for us and Sigma Delta Chi.

Working with the editors and business man- agers, the Publications Board oversees the ad- ministrative and financial side of DePauw ' s three student publications. Throughout the year it checks over and decides upon proposed ex- penditures, as well as keeping an account of how much money flows in and out. Filling the key posts on the DePauw, Boulder, and Mirage by the interviewing and selection of eager young journalists is another of the board ' s activities. This committee weighs the merits of the appli- cants for the editorial and business positions on the three publications choosing those they deem most deserving. A slight change in organization was made this year by having both a student and a faculty chairman, instead of alternating each year. Dr. Kenneth S. Wagoner and Charles West filled these positions. Three juniors are appointed each year for a 124 two-year term by the Student Governing Board, thus maintaining student representation at six every year. Representing the student body and reflecting its opinions, they need not have had any previous journalistic experience. Holding their positions for three years, the six faculty representatives are chosen by the faculty itself. A specific job is assigned to each member, who works on one or more of the five committees: the three committees for the publications proper, the finance committee and the committee on elections, each headed by a facultv member. Working silently and often without the praise that they deserve, this board works effiently, diligently to maintain free student thought and good faculty-student relations in the operations of DePauw ' s yearbook, newspaper, and maga- zine. In addition to their advisory functions, the members of the Board have complete supervision over the Publications Building itself.
