Francks Mountsier, Margaret Storey, Helen Garey A NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL SOCIAL SORORITY FOUNDED IN 1891 In 1899 Alpha Sigma Tau was born at Ypsilanti, Michigan. A group of women decided to unite in the spirit resulting in such a practicable motto as " All Sisters Together. " Tau doings during the 1939-49 year included many kinds of fun — teas, hikes, and breakfasts, room get-to- gethers, parties and social meetings in Mrs. Gasslander ' s apartment. During the first semester the theme of the social-professional meetings was " You. " Each program presented op- portunities for improvement. Most of the meetings were led bv different members; however, valuable informa- tion was brought to the Taus by professional people from various fields. On November third the Alpha Sigma Taus celebrated the national founding of the sorority. The Delta Chapter held its Founder ' s Day Ban- quet at Rustic Lodge. Guests were present from Zeta chapter and Johns- town alumnae chapter to join the Indiana members in their Founder ' s Day service. At the first freshman party the Taus and their guests went carnival-ing at Rustic Lodge, complete with fortune teller, side-shows, and an A. S. T. photo studio. The refreshment booths offered hamburgers, spaghetti, pop, and ice cream on sticks. Each Christmas the Taus do char- itable work. This year they presented handkerchiefs and holly baskets to men in wards at the Indiana Hospital. " You and Your Friends " was sub- ject of the meetings for the second half of the year. Speakers told of travels and topics of interest to sorority mem- bers. Suggestions brought from the convention in St. Louis were absorbed in meetings and school activities. The Taus and their freshman guests went Chinese at a dinner-dance at the Indiana Country Club. After dinner Confucius, the artist, entertained with a chalk talk and Chinese wit; the Tau trio sang, and four imported musicians plaved dance music as " China Boy " and " A Little Street in Singapore. " This year Delta Chapter sponsored its second annual Spring Homecoming. At luncheon at the College Inn. alumnae, patronesses, present mem- bers, and pledges met to renew and make acquaintances. Following the program came varied activities. This homecoming has provided an excellent opportunity for Taus, both old and new, to learn to know one another. 166

Rebecca Auker Rebecca Auker .Mary Kay Horner, Rebecca Auker Maroaret Artley ' A NATIONAL EDUCATION SORORITY FOUNDED IN 1914 An interesting, varied program lav before the Delts in September. Every Beta girl was happy to know that Lillian McLean was back after a vear ' s leave of absence. She kept the girls excited for months over her tales of England before the war. Founder ' s Day, September 23, found the Delta Sigs celebrating in white. At the first professional meeting on November 30, held in the Activities Cottage, Florence B. Kimball talked on personality. An interesting phase of this subject was brought out through the use of " check-up " sheets on which each girl tested herself. December 16 brought the year ' s first freshman party. Decorated windows told the guests that they were ap- proaching the Bubble Bar. Entering, they hung their wraps under a sign " coat-tails hung here. " Later, they were refreshed at the bar where coke- tails were served. Dancing was inter- spersed with group and individual singing. Who would think the School Lodge could be turned into a bar? All the Delts can say is, " It ' s perfect. " The annual Panhellenic dance in December was enjoyed by all the girls of the Delta Sigma Epsilon, as usual. The Delts take credit alone with the Pi Kappa Sigma ' s for the unusual decorations in Recreation Hall which added much to the success of the event. A formal dinner party at the Indiana Countrv Club, soft light and sweet music after an almost too perfect dinner, was just cause for the reluc- tance of all to return to the dorms the night of February 23. A varied pro- gram of chalk-talks, singing, and dancing added its bit to the perfection of the party. With the coming of spring and the conclusion of hectic weeks of rushing, the excitement of bidding was soon followed by pledging of new members and the administration of pledge duties. Then, too, came the planning for the annual Delt dance usuallv held in or near Pittsburgh. As school closes for the year, the Delts can be heard saying, " See you at the Delt dance. " 168
