Joiner Sivcrd Lindhcrf! Artlcv Jackson Horner Billi, Aukcr Paraluis Lcyshon McLean Wirtz Watson Gottwald Parros Kaufman In the summing up the activities of the year 1939-1940, much more could be said con- cerning the enjoyment and the pleasures which the year brought. Possibly the underlying reason for this was the very successful conclave which was held in Cincinnati, Ohio, from August 21 to 26, 1939. Mary Kaufman and Bernice Wirtz, Beta ' s representatives at it, brought back to the chapter manv new usable ideas for both business and pleasure. The girls all agree that it is a grand feeling to belong to an organization as large and as flourish- ing as Delta Sigma Epsilon. 169

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

YT THETA SIGMA EPSILON OFFICERS President ; Corabel Nelson Vice-President Lillian Little Corresponding Secretary Mary Elizabeth Feitt Recording Secretary Nancy Palmer Treasurer Margaretta Williams Editor Emma Estelle Pfahler Sergeant-at-Arms Doris Letzler Panhellaiic Representatives . . Marie Myers, Cleora Peters, Marian Lynch A NATIONAL EDUCATION At the founding of Alpha Chapter of Theta Sigma Upsilon at Emporia, Kansas, in 1921, the open motto selected was " The Higher Good. " Since then, fourteen chapters through- out the United States have adopted this belief and the desire to fulfill the five-fold objective. This term has been one of bells, baggage, and boxes for the Theta Sigs. Their former sponsor and present one were both married, and National Con- vention attended by Emma Estelle Pfahler vitalized the ideals of the organization. Perhaps Mr. Kipp could explain how the girls transported their belongings from his studio in the Arts Building to Music Education Department. On the first semester ' s social calen- dar were after-dinner coffee parties at Mrs. L. C. Davis ' with colorful mov- ing pictures or flickering firelight lend- ing atmosphere to Christmas carols; tea with Mrs. Marlin and Mrs. Watson; a professional meeting with Miss Wallace; formal initiation and banquet at the Country Club; a Farmer ' s Party with the sorority girls and freshman guests hiking to the College Lodge. SORORITY FOUNDED IN 1909 With the second semester activities came the formal rush party, this time in quite the opposite style. Gay flower girls, colorful corsages, varied entertainment, and rhumba rhythm gave the gala occasion a decided Spanish accent. March the fourteenth brought rushing season to a close, and the celebration of Founder ' s Day on March 15 with pledging and dinner started the new girls on their way toward membership. These, with formal initiation, pro- fessional meetings, the Mother- Patroness Tea and Senior Farewell, were the outstanding events on the second semester ' s social calendar. Of great importance was the resigna- tion from the college faculty of the former Miss Houston of the Art Department. But even though she has given up her teaching position, she has now become a life member, not only of the Biamonte ' s, but also of Theta Sigma Upsilon. In her stead, the Theta ' s have chosen Mrs. Marlin, who is as efficient and active as though she had been with the sorority since the installation of Pi Chapter. 170
