SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA OFFICERS President Margaret Ellen Carnahan Vice-President Phoebe Jane Albert Recording, Secretary Elsie Beall Corresponding Secretary Sally Egbert Treasurer Eleanor Burns Keeper of Grades Sally Caldwell Panhelleiiic Representatives Ruth Miller, Nancy Robeling A NATIONAL EDUCATION SORORITY FOUNDED IN 1 898 To state that Lambda Chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma is a national edu- cational sorority for girls in teacher- training conveys little meaning, for to a Tri Sigma her sorority is much more than a number of words and phrases. Many events combine to give an animate description of Lambda Chapter — one that has meaning to a Tri Sigma. The past season was interspersed with various activities. President Margaret Ellen Carnahan met with Tri Sigmas from all over the United States at the triennial National Con- vention held in June at the Broad- moor Hotel, Colorado Springs. In the shadow of Pikes Peak, Tri Sigmas exchanged ideas for bettering chapters, for closer sisterhood. The lo cal chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma is the oldest sorority in the Association of Education Sororities, founded at Farmville, Virginia, in 1898. Its members and pledges do their best to follow its purpose, " to build character, to stimulate high endeavor, develop leadership, pro- mote unselfish co-operation, and create the friendly spirit in all human relationships. " Panhellenic Tea brought us back into the swing of things . . . Satur- day night parties in Miss Sprowls ' apartment with hot soup and bread sticks . . . Early breakfasts, includ- ing the snowballing and violet pick- ing variety . . . An old-fashioned ghost party on October 31, given by the pledges in the Activities Cottage . . . Entertainment of alumnae dur- ing Homecoming week-end . . . Pur- ple mums at football games ... A lovely tea giv en in November by Miss Sprowls at the College Inn for all members, pledges, town alumnae, and patronesses . . . Teas on a smaller scale at our patronesses ' homes . . . The annual dinner at the College Inn before dancing to Baron Elliot at the Christmas Panhellenic Dance . . . The Tri Sigma barn dance, the in- formal rush party, with overalls and straw hats . . . Initiation services . . . sorority tests . . . Dinner dance for Freshmen at the Country Club with formal gowns and corsages . . . Pledge duties . . . Founder ' s Day mother and daughter dinner ... A farewell picnic given by Miss Sprowls . . . Bidding adieu to seven grand Seniors. 174
CasscI, Rohling, Fox, Wilson, Lloyd Hartley, Carnahan, Caldwell, Bcall, Scliry Russell, Miller, Sprowls, Egbert, Weaver Ely, Yothers, Leslie, Mowry, Hil Albert, Baumgardner, Burns, Leech A Tri Sigma is recognized by her badge, an equilateral triangle with an indented border of pearls, having a raised portion of black enamel in the center with a sigma in each corner and skull and crossbones in the center. Pledges wear an indented triangle of silver super- imposed upon a silver circle, and, during pledge week, wear a purple and white scarf. With this, the Tri Sigma vearbook closes. There are some things never forgotten; some humorous, some serious, hut all products of a sorority to which the members are all proud to belong. 175
