We think that he is appropriately symbolic of the readjustments our students have had to make in a year of renewed activities, peak enrollment, and a more serious outlook on higher education. Like George ' s personality, things have been alternately concor- dant and confusing, but never dull. It has been the best college year we ' ve seen for a long time, and it has showed promise of even better ones to come. 509880 The line went on . And on and on , . .

Composed of one delegate from each fraternity, the Council governs the relations of the fraternities, and organizes the rush, intramural, and social programs of the fraternity system. This year the Council adopted a new and somewhat experimental rushing program, standardized cup awards, and outlined the year’s program in advance with em- phasis on an improved intramural program. The Inter- fraternity Smoker held in the fall was the largest in the school ' s history, and even the oldest alumnus agreed that the rush season was the most successful held yet. The Interfraternity Sing was re-established as a major University event along with the Interfraternity Prom. This first year of complete re-activation will be re- membered as one of the finest in the Council ' s history, with each fraternity giving full cooperation to assure the success of every program sponsored.

Editorial Secretary In its fifteen years of publication THE GEORGE WASHINGTON REVIEW has established for itself an important place in the field of legal periodicals. It is published four times a year by the faculty and students of the Law School. Student members of the staff are selected from third- year students on the basis of scholarship and interest in legal research. In addition to credit of four semester hours, they receive training in legal analysis, research, and writing, which In turn encourages development of a detailed knowledge of current legal problems not other- wise obtainable. The LAW REVIEW specializes In Federal law, although it Is not limited to that field. The four principal types of material appearing in each issue are Leading Articles, usually by members of the Bar who are experts on given subjects; Editorial Notes and Recent Case Notes, both by student members of the staff; and Book Reviews, writ- ten by students and critics.

Together with Gary Reynolds, Bob Barnett, Leo Shampain, Jay Gluck, Chuck Cowell and Lynn Levine.

OFFICERS MARY JANE SUMMERS President JANET GUSSON Secretary GILBERT AWALT Business Manager JANE DREW ....... Workshop Director Cue and Curtain ' s four dramatic performances this year have offered a variety of talent and have been especially well put on. With its pre- Dual scene from " Richard III " sentations of " Of Thee I Sing " and " Richard III " last spring and " Blithe Spirit " and " Winter- set " in the fall, Cue and Curtain has received enthusiastic support. " Of Thee I Sing " , the year ' s musical produc- tion, was ably put across, despite the fact that Bill McClellan, scheduled to play Wintergreen, .vas taken to the hospital on the opening night. Jack Giblette took over and starred with Betty Lou Trowbridge, Carolee Arnold, Bert Await, and Andy Lentz. The final spring production was " Richard III " , Cue and Curtain ' s first Shakespearean venture. Highlighted by the excellent performance of Andy Lentz, the play was so successful that the players chose another Shakespearean play, " King Lear " , for this spring ' s production. Assisted by Dr. Fred Tupper, " Sparkle " presented " Richard III " ' in a single set, effecting some changes by ; Dark dealings from " Winterset " I Top, Left; From " Of Thee I Sing. " Top Right; " Blithe Spirit 1 Right: " Richard III. " the use of lights and combining the five acts of the two plays into two. The first production of the fall season was Noel Coward ' s " Blithe Spirit " . Drucie Snyder as Madame Arcati and Grace Pearson as Elvira received rave notices and helped make the per- formance a real hit. Quin Davies, Marme Winter- field, Frank Falkenhainer, Dick Winfrey, and Jane Drew completed the highly regarded cast. Maxwell Anderson ' s " Winterset " provided the mystery element to the season ' s schedule, with Jerry Raker as Mio, Jane Drew as Mirrianne, Bert Await as Trock, Ore! Leonard as Judge Gaunt, and Paul Cantor as Shadow. Played in a single set of professional quality done by Jane Summers and Bob Stevens, " Winterset " also drew raves from the critics. With Sparkle as director and so many capable actors, actresses, and workers In the organiza- tion, Cue and Curtain looks both back upon and forward to campus support and appreciation. " Blithe Spirit " GLEE CLUB With the return of male voices to rehearsals, the Glee Club took on a pre-war atmosphere and sang even louder and better than usual. In order that the entire campus could benefit from their musical efforts, the girls ' noon rehearsals were held in the basement of Government, This resulted in Handel ' s " Messiah ' ' echo- ing all around 21st and G during the big 12 o ' clock rush. " Doc " Harmon caught the spirit, too, and planned enough exciting events to keep even the most avid Glee Clubber happy. During the Christmas season the Club sang for several organizations. In addition to its annual Christmas concert held in Lisner Auditorium, members sang at the Statler Hotel on December 27 and gave a concert for the Colonial Dames. Spring fever made everyone even more enthusiastic — they practiced three times a week to make the Easter Concert a success and then turned in to prepare for the annual Spring Concert and dance In May. Incidentally, members acclaimed last year ' s dance so terrific that they gave one after the Christmas Concert too. With therr long list of fun and achievements, " Doc " and his Glee Clubbers have found that singing can be the key to a successful college career.

In the years since Orehesis has been active on cam pus, modern dance hes come to hold a major place In student activities. Always maintaining a high standard of quality, Orehesis has furthered dance as an art form. The original production group has branched into many levels of apprenticeship. Orehesis I, the top honorary group, is aspired to from freshman days on, but ail must go up the rungs of the ladder from Junior Dance Group to Orehesis I. Miss Elizabeth Burtner, director of the groups, has done an amazing job In building this organization from a group of seven in 1939 to Its present membership of sixty-one. Last year when Charles Weidman, national concert artist, gave the groups a guest lesson, he de- clared that Orehesis was technically the finest college group that he had ever taught. New York called to our talented group this year. They appeared In April at the annual school concert given by the Young Men ' s and Young Women s Hebrew Associa- tion, appearing with Hampton Institute, Manual Training of Bordentown, N r J., and the Women ' s College of Middlebury. In answer to the problem of recreational facilities on campus, Orehesis I sponsored the Square Dance Group which has been a great success. It will remain as a permanent campus organization. Again this year Orehesis production groups collabo- rated with Cue and Curtain In presenting the annual University musical. In March the University Alumni As- sociation presented Orehesis In its own annual spring 115 concert.

JIMMIE CANTRELL Vice-President GEORGE ROEWE MARIE B!E . . . . , , Ubraraian , , Secretary Business Manager DIRECTOR Leon Brusiloff Few University organizations idle during the war years have made as spirited and spectacular a come-baclc as the University Band. Major Leon Brusiloff, returning after five years in the Marine Corps, resumed his duties as Band Director. Be- fore the fall term began, Major Brusiloff found to his delight a nucleus of former pre-war Band members re- turning to George Washington after service in the armed forces. He enlisted their aid in recruiting new members during fall registration. By the first home football game the Band was back on its feet with 56 members enrolled and still growing. It was on hand to play at each of the several pep rallies before the football games. At these student gatherings, the Band introduced to new students the school pep song — Buff and Blue " . Homecoming festivities found the Band talcing a prom- inent part. They led the famous Torchlight Parade, and supplied music for the pep rally which followed. Pre- tentious letter-formations and special music between the halves at the Homecoming game represented hours of extra practice by faithful members who were desirous of helping Major Brusiloff set an unequaled example of school spirit and achievement for the year. With the end of football season, a little " time-out " was taken for fun when the members and their dates gathered at Sligo Cabin, Maryland, on December 15, for the first annual Band picnic. Besides rehearsing swing numbers and musical novel- ties which created quite a sensation at the basketball games, the Band swung into the modern American music of Morton Gould and Ferde Grofe in preparation for the spring Concert. The climax of a successful season came, as In past years, with the annual Band Banquet, at which time recognition was given to bandsmen for loyal performance throughout the year. The spring Concert added the finishing touch to a year which, although the most difficult In University Band history, was without a doubt one of the happiest and most gratifying years the Band has ever had. left to right: M.

Each Big Sis met her little sis and conducted her through registration, helped her to plan her program, and answered any and all questions.

With the clubhouse on 22nd Street as general headguarters, many new activities were launched during the year. MAIL CALL, the club paper, appeared in the fall, with an exclusive story from General Omar Bradley to feature its first printed issue. At the same time a Flying Club was or- ganized to keep the air-minded vets and their planes together. The Camera Club succeeded in equipping a darkroom in the clubhouse basement and has been operating on a full-time basis ever since. Students and faculty alike have been praising the Education Committee for the splen- did tutoring bureau it conducted throughout the year. The Club was just as active socially. It spon- sored a full program including a moonlight cruise last summer, a barn dance in the fall, and the annual Club Formal in the spring.

That is what Staughton Hall is to 83 girls, ranging from freshmen to graduate students. With Mrs. Lee always on hand to help with problems that come up, the dorm really fills its part as a temporary home. In the fall Staughton Hall participated in the Homecoming Decoration Contest with the theme of George Washington chasing an Indian through a forest with his hatchet. Behind the scenes on that chilly November day was Mrs. Lee who, in addition to being responsible for a large share of construc- tion on the display, was also valiantly working the hatchet which was " chopping up the Indian. " December found the Staughton Hall girls making plans to return to their homes for Christmas, but before leaving they took time out to enjoy the annual Christmas party. Mrs. Lee was presented with a leather-bound memorandum pad for her office while the girls sang carols around the tree in the living room. Instead of exchanging gifts, the girls contributed towards gifts to be given to a nearby orphanage. In the spring, a dance was given in Strong Hall for the girls of Staughton and their escorts.

" is a familiar phrase heard more this year than ever before in the history of Colonial athletic contests. With the war ' s end more than a year behind us and with the sudden growth of the student body from the influx of returning veterans, an abundance of football, basketball, and baseball material was made avail- able for our newly organized Sports Department. Barring the ifs and buts, we have Otts Zahn, who is noted for putting out excellent basketball teams with scanty material, Coach Vinnie De- Angelis, who you can bet will have a ball playing baseball team on the field when spring rolls around, and our football head coach, " Skip " Stah- ley, with a bigtime gridiron potential. We have an intramural program that measures up to any in the coun- try and the credit for its success goes to Joe Krupa and the enthusiasm he aroused In the men students in the various schools. From Max Farrington to the newest student manager, our Sports De- partment has done a bang-up job in a short period of time. As you look over this page and the following ones, you ' ll meet all those who work to make our teams a credit to the school, and you ' ll see those who supported these teams with the spirit born to us in 1946.

Bob Duncan made a play by play broadcast by telephone to the student club where most of the Colonial rooters were ' ’sitting out " the game. After an even contest In the first half, the Buffmen outclassed the Merchant Marines in the second half, scoring three times and rushing their opponents into the goal post for a safety. To top it off, Frank Cavallo kicked the extra point after every score, G. W.

Joe Buell and Johnny Shullen- barger teamed up to give us the victory. Buell passed twice for touchdowns and Shullenbarger did the kicking when the Rollins huskies were pressing. We kept them scoreless and came out of the battle with thirteen points. It was Larry Strickland who met the Rollins College re- ception committee and made all the arrangements for the players, G. W.. 13; Rollins, 0 On the 19th of October the team played their first home game against Wayne University at Griffith Sta- dium. All of our scores came In the second quarter and netted us twenty points while the Waynemen were only able to muster six points in the last minutes of play by virtue of a last spurt of power. By this time names like Cavallo, Shullenbarger, Buell, and Butkus were in every- one s conversation as we approached the height of the season, G. W,, 20; Wayne, 6 With three straight wins under our belts, we went up to New Brunswick, New Jersey, to take on the highly- rated Rutgers eleven, A special train was chartered to carry a horde of Colonial fans to the game with noise- makers, cheerleaders and a trainload of ♦ W. spirit. We lost the game, but not until the winners knew they had a fight on their hands and we had given them a good scare. Dick Koester, Jack Dobbins, and Ray Truck made themselves something to talk about around these parts " after they turned out a terrific performance for the Buff and Blue. G W M 1 3: Rutgers, 25 The following week-end Coach Stahley and his charges returned to take the field against our traditional rival, the Georgetown Hoyas They beat us I 8-6 but that was all they could do. On paper we pushed them all over the field only to have them recover on undreamed-of breaks which of course are part of the game. Johnny Right, top to bottom: Henry Augiesewici, Ed Gustafson, Pete Labulcas, Paul Weber. WE LOOK BACK ON A FINE SEASON— Shullenbarger was elected the outstanding player of the game and Carl Butkus ran a close second. There wasn ' t a Colonial on the field who didn ' t play his hardest game, G, W M 6; Georgetown, 18 With three wins and two losses the team traveleo 3 uuth to engage the Citadel Cadets in their first Southern Conference game of the year. The first half turned out to be a battle of defense, both teams kicking to more secure positions and waiting for the break that would mean an advantage. Our break came in the early minutes of the secon J half when Stan Burak intercepted a pass and carried to the Cadet s 20 yard stripe. Johnny Shultenbarger and Frank Cavallo shared the honors In the first score of the game and gave the fans a repeat performance in the FORWARD TD AM EVEN RETTER ONE last quarter. At the end of the game we had won our fourth victory of the season. G W., 18; Citadel, 0 In the last scheduled tilt of the 1946 season, we were matched against the strong William and Mary outfit. The game was preceded by a two-day round of festivi- ties, marking Homecoming Week. We lost the game 20-0 but gained another feather in our cap for the great game played by the Buffmen. G. W., 0; William and Mary, 20 Ending the season with four wins and three losses, we look forward to the coming grid season with much an- ticipation, and, at the same time, bid Pete Labukas, Ed Gustafson, Hank Augiesewicz, and Paul Weber farewell BASKETBALL Alter defeating lour of the area s top service teams, the George Washington University besketeers journeyed to Seton Hall lor a tilt with a club regarded as one of the best In the country. Although the final score found the Colonials on the short end of a 55-48 score, the Buffman forced the pirates of Seton Hall to fight from behind in the waning moments of the game Led by Bill Cantwell, Jim Rausch, and Don McNary, the Colonials went ahead at the opening whistle and only near the end of the first half did Seton Hall take the lead Fighting back in the second half, the Colonials tied the score at 41-41 with but a few m inutes to play, but couldn ' t keep up the pace as Seton Hail forged ahead to hand the Buffman their first defeat. G. W M 48; Seton Hall, 55 After defeating the Merchant Marine Academy for their sixth win in seven starts, The Colonial caqers sank Navy 43-38, giving Navy its only loss of the season to date. With Phil McNiff and Jim Rausch holding the hot-handed Navy team to a minimum of points and Bill Cantwell and Len Small scoring almost at will, the Colonials assumed a 27-20 lead at halftime and were never headed 0, W M 43; Navy, 38 At Durham, North Carolina, It was a different story. After fighting a highly favored Duke team to a 23-22 halftime score, the Buff and Blue fell before a deter- mined Blue Devil drive and could not overcome the 39- 26 lead Duke held midway in the second half. Paced by Phil McNiff and Jim Rausch, the Colonials attempted a comeback, but fell short and dropped their second game of the season, 52-46. G. W,, 46; Duke, 52 A new star was born as G.W invaded Ulrne Arena for the ' big game " with Georgetown University. The Hoyas, labeled as national champions, were highly favor- ed and confident of a victory they did not find that night. The Colonials, with their leading scorer Bill Cant- well sidelined with Injuries, played a near-perfect game and defeated Georgetown by a score of 45-37. Over- coming an early Hoya lead, the Buff and Blue forged ahead midway In the first period and were there to stay Art Cerra, until then unheard of, came off the bench to throttle the highly touted Andy Kosfecka and collect 13 points, establishing himself as a new Colonial star. Stel- lar performances were also turned in by Captain Jim Rausch and Edsel Gustafson, who proved himself to be the best backboard man seen in local circles. G, W, ( 45; Georgetown, 37 On the rebound from several lesser triumphs and seek- ing to clinch a bid to the Southern Conference tourna- ment, the Buff and Blue engaged Maryland, who had previously oufroughed them, 43-42. This time " the worm turned " ' and the Colonials, once again under nor- mal playing conditions, proved their superiority by thumping Maryland 63-48 The Buff completely stopped Maryland ' s fast breaking offense, absorbed the rough tactics of the opposition, converting them into points from the foul line, and thereby showed themselves to be a much better team. Led by Cantwell, Rausch, and Krelsberg,, the Buff ran up an early lead, increased it throughout the game, and coasted In to victory By virtue of this win, the Colonials moved very near to a tournament bid and presented Jim Rausch, Bill Cantwell, and Barry Krelsberg as three of the top players in the Conference G. W., 63; Maryland, 48 Two top Colonials: Jim Rausch led the 1946-47 varstty squad to a Southern Con- ference berth; and Bill Cantwell set a new University single season scoring record with 266 points. 154 OPPOSITE PAGE: Exciting moments from early games with Georgetown and the Quantlco Marines pp " fcyf r .-i ■ J ■MB • » j ILmX 4 ' 5r r |) II ? J As the student body continues to swell, the demand for more sports increases with the result that most of our pre-war minor varlsity athletics have been re activated. Something new on the list of the various competitions is the George Washington Sailing Association which was formed by a freshman student, Eric Nordholm, and has been received with enthusiasm by sports-minded students. It is growing in popularity by leaps and bounds. In its first two performances the boat club outsailed the Naval Academy Middies and placed ninth among twenty-seven colleges in the Inter- collegiate Championships. This year also marked the return of our rifle team under the direction of Frank Parsons, The squad Is taking advantage of this season to re- organize since the South Atlantic League will not re-open until next year. SPORTS . . . Our teams in the past have always ended up among the first ten posh tlons of the National Rifle Meets and they brought back the cup in 1938, Incidentally, to keep in trim, the riflemen are matched against George- town, Maryland, and the Naval Academy and have lined up tentative matches with Carnegie Tech, V.M.I., V h P.L, and West Point. Plans were made to have tennis and golf return this year and prepara- tions were underway at press time to have top-notch teams In both sports with Jim Cummings keeping his eyes open for new material for the court- men, while Jim Hayes was acting as watchdog for the linksmen. The most novel stunt sprung on the student body in recent years was staged by Bob Duncan, Coach of the swimming team and publicity di- rector of the school ' s Sports Department. Without a word of warning, the Colonial tankmen found themselves with a string of mermaids for teammates- — and they liked it! I N T R A M l R A L S 0A X lsTwJI i K V The year 1946 was a banner year for Intramural Sports. Combining the all-out support of the student body with the capable direction and untiring efforts of Joe Krupa and his able staff, we enjoyed our most successful program of recent years. Activities were extended, more enthusiasm was displayed, and as a result interest was more widespread and competition keener. The program s activities, numbering only three In 1940 and expanding gradually over the years, totaled twenty at the end of this year. Highlighting the program were touch football, softball, basketball, volleyball, and track, followed closely by boxing, wrestling, badminton, bowling, golf, ten- nis and the swim-dive competition. Kappa Alpha and Theta Delta Chi donned the touch football crowns In their respective leagues, after smashing their way through a season of rugged play. When the two teams clashed in the fraternity playoff, the KA’s, fighting to avenge a 1943 defeat at the hands of TDX, took the Inter-fraternity championship out of the hands of the Chi Deufs by a one first down victory. The touch football season was not finished, however, for in the meantime, the In- dependents had formed a league and action was running rampant there. In the Independent League play-off contest, Back Booth romped over the slightly favored Dodgers team, making them eligible to face the strong Kappa Alpha squad In the All-UniversEty Championship game. The K A s swamped the Back Boothers 17-0 in an uproarious second half to capture the All-University title. Softball was greeted with no less support and Interest than was the touch football season. In the fraternity league, it was Theta Delta Chi all the wa y — from start to finish. Not to be outdone, the Independents in their league dis- played a bevy of fine clubs. The Bohemians, strong In every department, finished the season on top after raising riot with every team in the league. In a thrilling finish to a thrilling season, TDX, in the All-University Championship game, walloped the powerful Bohemian aggregation to grab the softball title of the school. In the basketball picture we saw the same opponents who had tangled for softball laurels scrapping for the basketball title. The Bohemians turned the tables on the fratmen. winning the cup with a one point advantage In the deciding game. With the 1946-47 court season half over, four teams remained undefeated, Sigma Chi, Theta Delta Chi, Back Booth, and Bradley Hall. At the half way mark of the sea- son, 30 odd teams had been entered In the tournament, promising a heated finish. INTRAMURAL CHAMPS BRUSIONI DANCY FELDMAN TULL WOMEN’S SPORTS The fall season was ushered In with full schedules in hockey, soccer, archery, and the annual fall tennis tourna- ment. In the HOCKEY playoffs, the upperclass team showed Its heels to the inexperienced freshman teams by winning all of its games. The Odd-Even game was a walk-away for the Even team which defeated the Odds 6-0. By far the best game in the schedute was the post- season game between the freshmen and the upperclass- men, After scoring three goals in the first half, the upperclassmen were held scoreless in the second half by the fighting freshmen who then made their only score. Only the brilliant playing of forwards Ann Hirst and Audrey Wiggens and the fine defensive play of Lynn Harpster, Betty Hoffer, Leuvenia Peel and Sue Berger saved the upperclassmen from defeat. SOCCER took its place among the other fall sports with a full schedule of games between closely matched teams. The upperclass Junior-Senior team won first place, having been victorious In all of their games. The best game of the year was the Odd-Even game in which a favored Even team was held to a 4-4 tie by a valiantly fighting Odd team. Outstanding for their play were Jeanne Read, Mickey Tolan, and Nancy Gigllo, The fall ARCHERY Tournament was held on the West Potomac Park range November 14 and 15 during regular class hours with all members of the archery classes com- peting. The scores of the two sections were combined to determine the winners of the tournament and resulted in first place going to Janet Dofdge, second place to leuvenia Peel, with Ann Arnold and Juanita Duvall tying for third place. Ann Hirst won the fall TENNIS Tournament by defeat- ing Lynn Harpsfer 6-2, 6-2, in the final play-offs. In the semi-finals, Mary Lois Crane was defeated by Ann Hirst while Lynn Harpsfer in her first year of tennis defeated Kathryn Plugge. While the final tournaments were being played off in the major fall sports, practices had already begun for the VOLLEYBALL and BADMINTON tournaments and the long- awaited BASKETBALL season. Spring found two major women ' s sports going full force. The annual SWIMMING meet was somewhat unusual in that only three people were chosen for the honorary varsity. Sue Dearborn won first place and the W.A.A. Swimming Cup, while second and third places went to Sue Berger and Calve Kephart respectively The impressive pitching of Lynn Harpster in the SOFT- BALL playoffs was without doubt the main factor in the winning of first place in interclass competition by the Sophomores. In one of the better played games of the season, the Even team defeated the Odd team behind the pitching of Lynn Harpster and the steady backing of catcher Jeanne Read. At the same time, GOLF classes under Miss Turnbull were being held to acquaint students not only with the fundamentals of the game, but also with etiquette on the course.

Veterans pre- dominated both in the active chapter and in the record pledge class, whose size reflected the swollen condition of the University at large. Principal projects were settling into the new house and molding the brothers, old and new, into the typical old smooth-sailing Sigma Chi team. Social highlights of the season were the tradi- tional " Pirates’ Ball " held this year at a nearby Maryland barn; the " Sweetheart Dance " at Christmas time featuring the selection of Pa- tricia Calloway of Kappa Kappa Gamma as Sweetheart of Sigma Chi for 1947; and the mus- tomary sorority exchange dances and Saturday night house dances. Seasonal parties on Christ- mas Day and New Year ' s Eve were successful, as always. Sigma Chi looks to her so-far-undefeated basketball and volleyball teams as tokens of the athletic success to be expected in 1947. SIGMA CHI Both nationally and locally Sigma Chi is em- phasizing scholarship In recognition of the more serious attitude of students in general. Scholar- ship keys were won by Dorr Smith with 19 hours of 4.0 among the actives, and by Art Myers, with IS hours of 3.8 among the pledges. The Sigs contributed their share of campus leaders with Loyd Price, Cue and Curtain Presi- dent, and Larry Strickland, who, besides wield- ing the gavel for Student Council and Masonic Club, was elected to " Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges " . A party of twelve attended the national con- vention In Chicaqo in September, at which Gen- eral Patrick Hurley, an alumnus of the local chapter, was elected national president of Sigma Chi.

Around a skeleton crew of four returning members, they have been busy forming a new company of over fifty mem- bers including initiates and pledges. Finding a suitable backdrop has been a Kappa Sig prob- lem, too, their present house being only tem- porarily held over until a new and more suitable set can be found. The Academy Award winners have nothing on the Kappa Sigs, who boast some pretty fine " Oscars " on their mantlepiece. Honors in the form of the Interfraternity Council Scholastic Cup and the CHERRY TREE Circulation Cup have been their reward for two fine prefor- mances.

During the year numerous Sunday afternoon exchange dances were given for the sororities. Plans were made for a ski party to the mountains between semesters in January, and there was a great deal of talk about a proposed " Lost Weekend " shindig. In political circles KA was right in the front seat. In December, Bill McGhee was elected Vice-President of the Senior Class and Jim Walker took over the same position in the Fresh- man Class.

FRANK REIFSNYDER Re-activating In the spring of 1946 with eight former actives on the roll, the Sigma Nus in- creased their active membership to thirty by the beginning of the fall term. Occupying the lower floor of the red-bucked building at 2011 " H " St., the Sigma Nus in a comparatively short time converted the apart- ment into a modernistic suite. Probably the best tribute to this project was that rendered by Dean Elmer Kayser at the annual Interfraternity Smoker in which he said, “The Sigma Nus are actually working " ! This diligence continued into October rushing, the end of which found them claiming a grand tally of 35 pledges. With their Sunday afternoon tea dances, and numerous parties at the house, Sigma Nus have often been described as the perfect hosts and the fraternity as a source of good fellowship. Highlighting the social season for Sigma Nu was their Christmas Formal held at the Wesley Heights Community Club with music provided SIGMA NU by the University Veterans ' Band. The annual costume " Frontier Ball " , a tradition of Sigma Nus, In which members and their guests came dressed In the regalia of old western days, was appraised by many as the best social affair of the year. In accordance with the rest of the campus organizations, Sigma Nus gave their whole- hearted efforts to furnishing funds for equipping the new hospital by holding a highly successful " Benefit Dance " at the Chevy Chase Women ' s Club. As a result more than $400 was donated to the Hospital Equippage Fund. The Sigma Nus received their share of honors too, with Reid Baldridge as president of the Interfraternity Council, member of the Student Life Committee, member of Gate and Key and " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Univer- sities 1 ' ; Dick Mahoney as manager of the tennis team, and a member of Gate and Key; Jack Vonieff and Allen Whilden on the CHERRY TREE and HATCHET staffs respectively, and Jim Speaks elected President of the Freshman Class. 181 I First Row Gary Arkoian.

Sparked by the acquisition of a house at 1812— 19th St., the brothers have worked hard with redecorating plans, carpenters tools, and bright ideas. By spring their house was completely furnished and finished — ready for recrea- tion and relaxation. Many Aeacians appeared on campus this fall, ready to dive into athletics, activities and rushing. They opened their rush schedule with a picnic in Rock Creek Park and finished with a dinner party af Donet ' s Restaurant, RICHARD M.

After rushing the chapter began making plans for a Harvest Moon Ball which was held on November 30. The holiday season was fittingly climaxed with a bang-up New Year ' s Eve party at the home of Dick Berryman. Spring activities centered around the new house. Finishing touches over, Acacia cele- brated with a housewarming on February 8— a suc- cessful climax to their efforts toward reorganization. 182 T A l KAPPA EPSIION First Row Richard Ayers, Tobias Boyd, Fran- cis Briggs, George Carter, William Deafer Second Row Hector de la Garza, Marshal] Gard- ner, Wayne Gilchrist, Pe+er Kostik, Wallace Oliver, Third Row Richard Ransom, Robert Spencer, James Sfribfing, Gordon Whitt.

Besides having devoted the year to strengthening their membership and improving their chapter ' s scholarship, the Tekes have been looking for a well-laid roof to put over their heads. When not house-hunting, the Tekes have found time for afternoon tea dances with the sororities on campus, a Christmas formal, and a New Year’s Eve party at the house. In January, Founders ' Day was celebrated at the Willard Hotel, and the annual Triangle Ball was held at the Washington Aviation Country Club in May. Real estate-minded members, who know the importance of good Investment, have naturally been active on campus with George Carter as social chairman of the Inter- fraternity Council, Hector de la Garza as social chair- man of the Interfraternity Pledge Council, and Jim Stribling as student head of Veterans ' Housing. With their fine new pledge class, the Tekes are doing a splendid job of re-establishing their chapter, which In the years to come is sure to reach new heights In membership as well as greater proportions in regard to living quarters.

With returning PIKA ' s and new veteran members swelling the ranks of the chapter, the fraternity resumed its prominent position in G. W. school life. It was an eventful and exciting year, well- inauqurated by a successful rush-week. Both semesters found the active chapter participating in the intramural athletic activities. John Puill coached the newly formed PiKA football team, which played several excellent games with plenty of drive and spirit and the chapter teams at- tained fine results in basketball, softball, and ping-pong. The fraternity was also well repre- sented in " Cue and Curtain " and in the uni- versity band. Among the many social events were several enjoyable tea-dances. A genuinely spooky Hal- loween party brought forth thunderous approval from the many who attended this celebration. PI KAPPA ALPHA The annual Shipwreck Ball, held at the Potomac Boat Club during December was so realistically exciting that some of the veteran brothers thought they were back on a Pacific island . . . needless to say the party was a huge success. The climax of the social year was the annual Dream Girl Dance, held during the spring term. During February the chapter grew consider- ably with the proud addition of about 25 new initiates who took their places next to the many outstanding PIKA brothers such as Jim Rausch, captain of the university basketball team and Vice-President of the Interfraternity Council, Bill Warner, chief of the university band, Jack Clark, university wrestling champion and member of Gate and Key, and Henry Bardach, member of Phi Eta Sigma. It was a busy year for PiKA with achievement on all fronts, much pleasure for everybody and plenty of romance ... to all of which the Pikes point with pride and satisfaction. 185 First Row: Harold Bennington, Joseph Blanton.

When, after four long years of war, ten recently dis- charged veterans found themselves on the G, W. campus without a chapter of their respective fraternities, they determined to utilize their common background as a nucleus for a new organization. From this modest be- ginning the society has grown rapidly; a chapter has been established at Northwestern and several others are in the process of being chartered, A nondescript shed on Twenty-Second Street was rented from the university slum clearance authority and after much travail has been furnished in a semblance of the surroundings befitting a fraternal organization. The membership has grown steadily despite the vicissi- tudes common to veteran students and the resultant rapid turnover in personnel The prime objective of the Argonauts Is the strengthen- ing of interfraternal relationships, both local and national. Through the medium of social affairs open to all campus organizations, it Is hoped that a feeling of unity may be established. The organization traces its origin to the intrepid Greek adventurers who, under the leadership of Jason, traversed the ancient world In search of the symbolic Golden Fleece. Since its members have exceeded even the Greeks in the variety of places visited and experi- ences encountered, It is felt that the name has its appropriateness. Virtually all members of the National Interfrafernlty Conference not having chapters at G, W, are represented in the Argonauts. The various universities which the members have attended are located in all sections of the United States, After their first year the Argonauts believe whole- heartedly that their experiment has been a success, and look forward to further progress in fulfilling their objective of strong inter-fraternal unity. 167 SIGMA PHI EPSILON WILLIAM LEE PAGE ROBERT DAUGHERTY ROBERT THOMPSON OFFICERS . .

Cruickshanks Elmer Louis Kayser William C. Van Vleck For the first time since the end of the war, all 72 chapters of Sigma Phi Epsilon are active on their respective campuses. The D. C. Alpha Chapter was typical of those who returned to active status this year. First step in the re activation program was the acquisi- tion of a house. Through the combined efforts of actives and alumni, the fraternity took over the top two floors of a university-owned house at 808 — 22nd Street, and occupied themselves for the next few weeks with a complete redecorating program. To display their good looking color scheme and furniture, the brothers held an Open House along with the Argonauts, who had moved in downstairs. Over 250 persons, representing all the campus fraternities, were present at this suc- cessful function. The chapter ' s fall activities were considerably height- ened by the appearance of new pledges who increased the chapter strength to over 30 members. Plans for the future Include bringing the chapter up to its pre-war strength and claiming an even more prominent place for Sigma Phi Epsilon on campus. First Row Robert Campbell,.

At the tip of the arrow, guiding it to fun and achievement was President Jean Prichard, who was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Pi Epsilon, and was chosen secretary of the senior class. She was joined by Bobby Borror, who performed the amazon feat of editing the CHERRY TREE and was elected to ' Who ' s Who In American Universities and Colleges. " All the Pi Phis joined in the shaft of their golden arrow to send it straight toward activity bullseyes. High scorer Drucie Snyder, Cue and Curtain Assistant Director, could always be found in the auditorium, whether working on sets or playing the lead in " Blithe Spirit. " " Ladies in Hades " was boosted to success with the aid of Molly Cochrane ' s vocal chords and Pi Phi dancing ability. Scoring high on the CHERRY TREE were Art Ed Jackie Perry (originator of the idea of George, the Gremlin) and Group Photo P I BETA PHI Ed Sally Dessez. Honors went to Pat Ludwig and Betty Ann Paisley, who were tapped by Tassels, and to Anne Visintainer with her election to Phi Pi Epsilon. Homecoming festivities were brightened by the support of Marion Cummins and Jackie. The Pi Phis gave feathers on their arrows extra brushing to run up the social score. They cele- brated the end of exams last spring with a marvelous house party at Ocean City, complete with lamb chops for breakfast, lunch on the beach, and sizzling suntans, while summer brought its parties and easy living. Undaunted by the local hotel strike, they launched the fall term with a dance at the Wardman Park to honor the new pledges — the success of which was un- doubtedly due to Jervey ' s path through the picket line. The Statler Hotel was the scene of their dance to celebrate the Christmas holidays. It has been another high scoring year for th$ Pi Phis, whose arrows aimed true and hit the bullseye every time. 191 First Row: Nancy Abreo, Marion Alvord.

W. and all the ships at sea, as the CHERRY TREE goes to press, let’s take a glance at the Chi Omega news bulletins for the past year. From reliable sources, it is learned that last spring the Chi O ' s were practicing fast and furiously for the Sorority Sing — which, incidentally, they won. They were also industriously polishing up the five new cups they had acquired for athletic championships. In April, it is reported that the Chi O’s cele- brated their Founder ' s Day with a banquet at the Kenwood Country Club where entertain- ment was furnished by an alumnae style show and by the winning goat show skit of the 45 pledge class. Individually among the Chi O ' s, Janet Doidge was elected publicity director of the Student Council, Joann Beames won second place in the May Queen contest, M ' liss Wilson was chosen as the " Dream Girl of Pi K A, " Margaret Williams was picked to wear that cherished Phi Beta Kappa key, and Jane Charrier and Marion Warfield were selected as members of Delphi. Came the fall, and Chi O ' s were again busily engaged in campus activities, first winning the CHI OMEGA volleyball tournament, then taking the lead in the Community Chest Drive. Everyone was hav- ing a wonderful time at the many exchange dances, honoring the new pledge class with a dance on December I I in the Burgundy Room of the Wardman-Park, and holding an open house for all campus fraternities on December 15. When election results were released, it was learned that three Chi Omegas had attained class offices with Phyllis Weissinger, Louise Clark, and Nancy Giglio, secretary-treasurers of the frosh, sophomore and junior classes respectively. In an exclusive interview, it was revealed that Claire Jennings was serving on the senior staff of the HATCHET and on the Elections Commit- tee, Janet Doidge had become vice-president of W.A.A. and secretary of Inter-Sorority Ath- letic Board, Louise Clark had been chosen for " Ta ssels " and that Jeanne Pauly had been elected prexy of the Spanish Club, In the ath- letic department Calva Kephart was selected tennis manager, Lynn Harpster softball manager, and Nancy Giglio soccer manager. Surveying their past record of achievement and the members ' great plans and enthusiasm for the future, major critics unanimously pre- dicted for the Chi Omegas another brilliant and successful year! 193 First Row: Mary Allison, Mary Arnold.

Put a whole chapter toqether and you have a recipe for a successful sorority season. The year began with a rush of activities cli- maxed by the sprinq All-U Sing wherein Sigma Kappa won third place. The first big social event of the summer was the annual beach party held at Callawassee Beach. Exciting yacht trips, danc- inq at Beverly Beach, bridge games on the sand, the usual blisters — these were a few of the finish- ing touches that topped off a perfect two weeks. Following this were trips to New York and Vir- ginia Beach and a flight to the Sigma Kappa Convention at Toronto by several gals. The Sigmas finished redecorating their apart- ment just in time for fall rushing. Applying themselves with their usual punch and vigor, they garnered the largest sorority pledge class on campus — 27 of the finest pledges that could be found! Then came a whirl of activities — ex- change dances, open houses, the pledge formal at the Statler. The pledge class came through with true Sigma ability and won first place in the annual Goat Show — not to mention- first place in the poster contest too! There was one other important event during the fall term — Dot Baines and her Hudson! For a 25c chance she SIGMA KAPPA has the bright shiny car and how we love it. The spring term was equally successful and eventful. Another fine pledge class, initiation with the banquet following, a week end house party at Holiday House, a week at the beach and numerous smaller outings — hayrides and bridge parties. The Sigmas were also busy this year doing things for others— they made drapes for the Veterans’ Dorms and helped furnish five of the lobbies. They sent boxes to the Maine Seacoast Mission and to a two-year old French girl. Outstanding in campus activities were our president, Dottie Simmons, Freshman Director on the Student Council; Dottie Baines, president of Big Sisters; Kitty Killeen, cheerleader and W.A.A. officer; Barbara Bacon, secretary for the Cheerleaders; Margie Rhodes, first woman editor of the Engineering School paper, MECHELECIV. For outstanding service to the University, Dottie Simmons and Nita Hall were elected to " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities.” Nita was also tapped for Phi Pi Epsilon while Mary Olga Longley and Louise Benson were elected to " Tassels. " With the year ' s ingredients all mixed, the Sigma Kappas are proud of the results of their recipe for success. 195 First Row: Janet Abbe. Vera Beck, Ann Costs, Betty nan Dean.

When the team got together for practices last summer they were thrilled to learn that they had captured first place in scholarship for the previous semester and had won the national DZ Founder ' s Award at National Convention. For recreation the team cooled off between practices at beach parties — first at Chopawam- sic Park, Va., and then at Helen Bruin’s summer cottage. Fall found the DZ ' s ready to tackle campus activities. At the beginning of the first half they scored 21 points by rushing; and made social gains with their Harvest Ball and two Christmas parties in December. They scored a touchdown by collecting the most money in the hospital drive. Special mention for outstanding plays went to Mary Alice Novinger who called signals for Panhellenic, Helen Bruin who directed COGS, and Lois Lord who gained yardage as prexy of both Mortar Board and Pi Delta Epsilon. At the end of the first half the team went into a post-exam huddle to hatch up new plays. They opened the second half with many social gains — exchange dances, an open house for fra- ternities, and their annual Rose Ball. Many DZ players were recognized for their outstanding efforts. The six teammates elected to " Who’s Who in American Universities and Colleges " were Dottie Jean Eggeling and Lois Lord, who also were chosen for Mortar Board and Phi Beta Kappa; Trudy McNabb as CHERRY TREE Organizations Editor and Mortar Board member; Ikie Martin, as Student Council Social Chairman, head of the Square Dance Group, and Princess of Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity; Dottie Henry, HATCHET editor; and Mary Alice Nov- inger, one of the three DZ ' s on the Student Life Committee.

Members started the ball roll- ing by placing another cup on their mantle for winning the CHERRY TREE subscription drive. Their " diamonds in the rough " (pledges, to you) followed the actives good example by copping second place honors in the pledge Goat Show with " The Revolt of the Comic Strips. " Not content to rest on their laurels, they polished the edges of their diamonds by entertaining at parent and alumni teas, redecorating their rooms, going on picnics, enjoying fraternity exchange dances, helping along altar-bound members with showers, and building the " Blue and White Castle " at their annual pledge formal. The true value of a diamond is found in the many lights it reflects, and the ADPi ' s have shown their worth in the reflections of: Nancy ALPHA DELTA PI Hanck, who doubled as a member of the HATCHET Editorial Board, and was among the select listed in " Who ' s Who in American Uni- versities and Colleges " and Pi Delta Epsilon; Ethel McVey, elected to Tassels; Eugenie Lee, ADPi activity wonder, who in addition to serving on the HATCHET Sub-Editorial Board, was elected Vice-Prexy of Big Sisters and a member of Phi Pi Epsilon along with Kay Smith, Mary Donnelly, and Ethel McVey; Marmie Winterfield, Cue and Curtain supporter, who played one of the leads in " Blithe Spirit " ; Shirley Matchett and Pat Farrell who were blue ribbon winners in the fall riding show; and Elaine Conroy, CHERRY TREE Beauty Queen candidate.

Everyone came back with beautiful suntans and fond memories of a wonderful time . . . " The poor blighted girl never was a KD " . . . or she, too, could have gone to the tea dance the PiKA ' s gave the KD ' s last November . . . Color was added to the gala affair by the yellow shoes Ann Mlbuck accepted from the PiKA presi- dent in exchange for her shoes which wouldn ' t stay on! " Oh Napoleon ' s Empress had the world at her feet " . . . and the KD ' s had Lux flakes which were substituted for dancinq wax at the Kappa Delta Pledge Formal held at the Hotel 2400. The management spread the flakes so thick that the members and their dates practically had to skate . . . " But she lacked the one thing that makes life complete " . . . The orphan children at Kappa Delta ' s annual Christmas Party didn ' t, though, for Joan Stevens came out dressed as Santa Claus to provide laughs and fun for the occasion. " Oh Elizabeth of England; Isabella of Spain " . . . The KD ' s had queens and rulers of their own this year . . . Shirley Green as CHERRY TREE Beauty Queen Candidate, Betty Keeler as Vice- President of Panhel, Marie Bie as sparkling Drum Majorette for the Band; Vivyan Kimmel as a Tassels member; and Donna Hill as Seniors Editor of the CHERRY TREE and prexy of the Symphony Club . . . " They had their royal palaces, but all in vain " . . . the KD ' s didn ' t need a palace to entertain the campus princes . . . their rooms furnished a decorative setting for their Fraternity Open House and numerous other parties . . . " For they never knew the royalty that lived down the street where the Kappa Delta sister- hood was wont to meet " . . . All the KD ' s were rushing around trying to move into their new rooms in International House. Amidst carpenters, wet paint and wallpaper they situated themselves comfortably in their new quarters, proud to be the only sorority on campus to boast a garden! " Oh the Duchess of Windsor had her riches and fame, but nevertheless I ' m her equal I claim " . . . the Kappa Delts certainly are with their activities and fun. " And in my reincarnation I hope that I ' ll be " . . . Always on top like KD’s Jimmie McClifford, Betty Walters and Marjorie Lamb when they brought home the Intersorority Bowling Cham- pionship . . .

During Homecoming Week in November they labored diligently with signs, crepe paper and confetti decorating the HATCHET office under the direc- tion of Dot Caplan, Elaine Miller, and Charlotte Maletz. December ' s triumph was winning third place In the Goat Show with their hilarious skit " Touchdown Topics. " January found the mem- bers working hard to collect one of the largest sums for the University Hospital Fund Drive. Wedding bells rang " For Me and My Gal, " as Sarah Muchnick, Viv Cohen and Evelyn Green- baum took new last names. All the Phi Sigmas were social belles, with their numerous tea dances, pledge-active socials, and a joint dance with Phi Alpha. They celebrated Founder ' s Day with a dance at the Willard Hotel on December 7. Sorority " Belle Hop " was their annual pledge formal in March. P H I SIGMA SIGMA Hard work and achievement became the theme of Phi Sigma Sigma as outstanding mem- bers rushed about to and from meetings and activities. Versatile Vivian Burke took campus honors with her election to Mortar Board and " Who ' s Who in American Universities and Col- leges. " In addition, Viv found time to be chapel pianist and Glee Club ' s favorite alto soloist. Nora Dubin followed Viv ' s good example as did numerous other Phi Sigmas who were active in Cue n Curtain, HATCHET, CHERRY TREE, and the honoraries. Honors went to Vivian Cohen who was awarded a key for her outstanding con- tribution to the sorority, while Selma Wasserman represented Phi Sigma as CHERRY TREE Beauty Queen Contestant and held an office in the Pan- hellenic Association.

Vice-President RUTH ANN RAMSDELL Secretary BARBARA KNOTT Treasurer BETTY MALONE Historian ADVISOR SCOTIE REDDICK Zeta Tau Alpha’s social and activity " house” was a big success this year with some of the school ' s best architects on the construction end. Social construction got under way with a beach party in the summer. A " Chocolateria” given by the pledges for the pledges of other sororities laid down some strong foundations, and the girders were well riveted by a highly successful open house for the fraternities. The walls were going up rapidly when the Home- coming Week End came around, and Zetas were busy enjoying the parade and the game as well as catching more than one eye on the dance floor. In December the roof was nailed down with a Christmas Dance for the pledge class, a Mother ' s tea, and a Christmas party given by the alums. The finishing touches were applied at the Spring Formal, the Easter party, and the picnic in May. Some prize trimmings and trophies were con- tributed to Zeta ' s Hall of Fame by many of Its girls individually — Phi Beta Kappans Ginny Jones ZETA TAU ALPHA and Mary Bagby were elected to both Pi Gamma Mu and Phi Pi Epsilon; Joan Hyatt as vice-presi- dent of Phi Pi Epsilon and Betty Mayfield as its treasurer, carried on in the leadership field. Joan was also on the SUMMER SCHOOL RE- CORD staff and contributed her West Point miniature to the collection of trimmings, while Betty was a candidate for CHERRY TREE Beauty Queen. Maisie Oliver was treasurer of Pan-Hel and Barbara Stone was president of Junior Pan- Hellenic. The GRIND staff claimed Betty Ann Beall, Barbara Stone, and also Helen Leary as Business Manager; Helen was also on the MAIL CALL staff and was Publicity Chairman of the Newman Club, along with Eileen Cummings. Neala Nordstrom sparked the hockey team to victory, and Dot Sutherland was Zeta ' s candi- date for Homecoming Queen. Eight Zetas con- tributed their vocal talents to the Glee Club, and all the members worked actively in campus affairs. Zeta architects can be proud of their year ' s work toward building a fine chapter. 207 First Row: Nancy Andersen, Sally Bar- row, Beverfe Berry, Ruth Boesch, Pauline Bott, Dorothy Buckelew, Patricia Calloway.

Many happy memories remain as fhe Kappas recall their mad scramble, 40 strong, to Ocean City last May. This excursion was made especially enjoyable with the thought of: ( I) exams being over, and (2) no more practicing for the inter- sorority sing! (at which the original " Kappa Medley " and " All the Things You Are " won second place, making the long rehearsals worth while). The Kappas also have happy memories of — the hard work on their homecoming decorations, which took second prize in the House Decoration Contest — of the monthly pledge-active dinners, the exchange dances, the Open House — of the Christmas party and the winter picnic— ana of that wonderful progressive dinner and dance at the Shoreham in honor of the 25 pledges.

STEWART McDONALD JULIA WADE GLADYS GORDON Sailing back to G. W. last fall, the DG’s cast their golden anchor to establish a firm beachhead for their second year on campus. After enjoy- ing a cruise which included a stop-over at Ocean City in the spring, they turned back again In October to G. W. where they prepared to " sign on " new crew members. They were highly suc- cessful, as 15 apprentices were added to the cause. To celebrate their new membership, the DG ' s gave a formal dance at the Chevy Chase Wom- en ' s Club which was preceded by a party at Marty Barnaby ' s. The fall was filled with bridge parties, open houses, and supper parties in addi- tion to the ever-present studying. These activi- ties were climaxed at Christmas time by a party given by the apprentices for the old crew- complete with Santa Claus Betty Latimer, who added a hilarious touch to the occasion. DELTA GAMMA Individual crew members brought fame to the DG vessel — June Isenberg brought a shiny new cup for her work as Homecoming Queen chair- man; Sue Berger made them proud when she became president of W.A.A.; Betty Hoffer con- tributed not only hard work for W.A.A., but also successfully managed the hockey team. The honoraries recognized the outstanding abilities of Delta Gams as Phi Pi Epsilon pledged Jean Drew and Helen Osbourn. Helen was in the Homecoming Queen ' s court and was the DG nominee for CHERRY TREE Beauty Queen.

Jean started out with the Washington Alumnae Chapter and the Washington Junior Alumnae Chapter to rush during the summer of 1946. August found the seven girls chosen to be charter members wearing shiny new pledge pins and working like beavers on summer rushing and plans for fall. September brought with it two " colonizer " Thetas — Leslie Metheny, from the University of Nebraska, and Marilyn Matteson, from the Uni- versity of South Dakota. This capable twosome led smoothly over the rough spots of rushing. The morning of the first open house found the Theta rooms bare of furniture, but the alums had not deserted — by afternoon the rooms were furnished and ready for rushing! This competent " rushing staff " of three actives and seven KAPPA ALPHA THETA pledges succeeded in gaining 24 happy pledges when results were known. Next came plans for initiation of the charter m pledges and installation of the chapter. Every- one was thrilled to have Theta Grand President, Mrs. Virginia L. Grimm, Vice-Grand President, Mrs. Pearl Higby, and Mrs. Lillian S. Wilsor, the President of the Washington district, to officiate at these occasions. Gamma Kappa Chapter was officially installed November 10, 1946, at the Mayflower, and the next day the chapter was introduced to Washington at a tea at the Wash- ington Club. Goat Show practices, sorority parties, fra- ternity exchange dances and exams filled the remainder of the first semester and the second semester was just as busy. Sorority Sing prac tices, May Day festivities and plans for the house party at the close of school ended Gamma Kappa ' s first year — a year of hard work but much fun. 213 0 M I GRACE CUNNINGHAM EVELYN RAPEE . , , , CRON ALPHA OFFICERS .

Chief Pilot Grace Cunningham and her crew of twelve sorority girls whose chapters are not on campus, have become well organized and are again enjoying the fun they had in their respective chapters. They took off just in time to nose-dive into University affairs and the Intersorority Volleyball tournament. The Argonauts were guests at their successful open house for which the Kappas generously lent their rooms. Miss Towne, their advisor, held a tea for them and served such superb food that the girls almost gave up their activities to become Home Ec majors. Individual members have been high-flying too — Joy Saalfrank has been busy as Copy Editor of the CHERRY TREE and pledge of Phi Pj Epsilon, while Grace Cunning- ham has been running the club gauntlet with the Canter- bury, Symphony and Square Dance groups. The Omicron Alpha crew has had a successful first hop and hopes to fly even higher next year. Scaled: J, Saalfrank, G. Cunningham, E, Rapee. Standing: D. Gates, P. Williams, E.
