NORTHEASTERN STATE COLLEGE
December M, 1952
To the students and staff members of Northeastern State College:
It has been a pleasure being president of an
institution whose staff and student memberships are made up
of such outstanding people as will be found in the pages of
this book. The year was successful because of the work,
cooperativeness, loyalty, and untiring efforts of each
faculty member and student. It is our sincere hope that all
of your relationships with Northeastern have been pleasant
and have contributed to your being a better citizen in our
We urge you to continue your loyalty to Northeastern
by helping us with your suggestions and kind words in our
endeavor to provide the best type of educational institution
for the young people of the northeastern part of the state.
We also urge each of you to do what you can to make democracy
as strong as possible in order that we may continue to
provide a democratic type of education for all who wish to
attend a public school in the United States.
The roots of democracy stem from education. You
can strengthen democracy by continuing to urge others to
get as much education as possible in order that more citizens
will be able to think more intelligently in a democracy.
As the years go by, I wish for you peace and
happiness and the blessings of God, who is the Giver of all

Dean of College
Dean Bally and Secretary Norma carrying on an ordinary days work
Dean Bally is always ready to help solve any problem that may confront Northeaatefrn btudents
Dean of Women
Dean Berkshire is a part of the foundation on
which Northeastern stands. As Dean of Wom-
en, Miss Berkshire has a chance to become
personally acquainted with all the girls on the
campus. She is always ready to help solve
their problems. She shares their joys and
hardships and her door is always open to
students, or anyone who just wants to come
in for a friendly chat.
Dean Deneke has proved to be more than a
friend to every student on the Northeastern
campus. If you ever have a problem, the
Dean of Student Personnel is ready to help
you in any way he can. The school calendar,
student files, and the much talked about,
Freshman tests are also part of his responsi-
bility. Dean Deneke is probably one of the
busiest men on the campus, but he is never
too busy to help a student.

With the aim of making ALPHA CHI, national honorary
scholastic society, more meaningful to its members, the
year's program was planned for more student participation.
The Oklahoma Alpha Chapter was installed on the North-
eastern campus in January, 1938.
Added to the five returning members, sixteen members
were initiated the first semester. To be eligible for member-
ship in the society, a student must have an average of 3.4
or better in at least sixty-two college hours, combined with
"those elements of character which make scholarship effec-
tive for good among under-graduate students."
In February, delegates attended the annual national council
at Southwestern University, Georgetown, Texas. The annual
picnic in May closed the activities for the year.
Officers are Barbara Cromer, Presidentg Clay Yeager,
Vice President, and Barbara Sloan, Secretary-Treasurer.

RHO THETA SIGMA was organized at Northeastern in
1934, for the purpose of giving both recognition and fellow-
ship to those students who distinguish themselves in the field
of scholarship. Dr. Wesley A. Deneke became faculty spon-
sor in 1949, and since then has devoted much of his time
toward the activities of Rho Theta Sigma.
A grade average of 3.4 for 12 consecutive hours is required
for membership. Also an essay by the student is placed in
the Rho Theta Library for reading by future members. Ac-
tivities began with a combination initiation and picnic on

initiations were held during the year.
Officers for this year are: Wilson Durham, President, Mary

KAPPA MU EPSILON grew from a Mathematics club,
organized in 1926 by Mr. L. P. Woods, to a National Frater-
nity in 1931 with a present membership of 51 chapters

The purpose of the fraternity is fourfold: To further the
interest in mathematics in those schools which place their
primary emphasis on the undergraduate programg to help the
undergraduate realize the important role that mathematics
has played in the development of western civilizationg to de-
velop an appreciation of the power and beauty within mathe
matics because of its demands for logical and rigorous modes
of thoughtg and to provide a society for the recognition oz
outstanding achievements in the study of mathematics.
The official journal, THE PENTAGON, is designed to as
sist in achieving these objectives as well as to aid in estab
lishing fraternal ties between the chapters.

States. It was organized in 1921. The BSU serves as a strong
link between the church and the college student. The chief
aim of the BSU is to keep the college student in direct con-
tact with the activities of the church. The local BSU is an
organization in an institution of higher learning, made up
of the members of the Baptist unit organizations which

The INDEPENDENT STUDENT ASSOCIATION is
basically a social organization. All college students in addi-
tion to their studies, need a well-rounded social and religious
life. Our organization is for all students who wish to enjoy
themselves outside of school hours. We welcome anyone to
our meeting, parties, and dances. Our membership, however,
is open only to those not belonging to a Greek social organi-
zation. This year we had several parties, most of them just
to get acquainted and have fun. Our formal dance, an annual
affair, was held late in the spring. We also participated in
sports, Stunt Night and gave a special assembly.
Officers for this year are Bill Matthews, President, Johnnie
Orbin, Vice President, Addie Humphrey, Secretary-Treasurerg
and Dr. B. L. Kinkade, sponsor.

With a sigh of relief from editor, staff and sponsor,
THE NORTHEASTERN went to press every second week
during the school year.
Upon publication, copies were carried to the main hall
of the Administration Building where eager students,
hurrying to eight o'clock classes, grabbed an issue. From
there it was the teacher's headache . . . trying to lecture
over the rattling of newsprint and the smothered chuckles
of those reading MOver the Coffee Cups."
For the first time in the history of The Nortlieastern,
students were reading a first-prize winner. ln the Okla-
homa Collegiate Press Association contest last spring The
Northeastern won first place in the news story division.

Beta Chapter of PHI LAMBDA CHI was founded on the campus of Northeastern State College
March 31, 1939, by twenty-one men, with the ideal of promotion of brotherly love and kindly
feeling, the establishment of friendship of a firmer and more lasting basis.
Twenty-seven Phi Lambs met at their first social function of the year at the Boy Scout
Camp. The theme was the now traditional Western style with Hillbilly singers and pretty cow-
girls dancing and singin' which was furnished by our sorority sisters the Alpha Sigma Alpha.
Of the group of prospective pledges at the smoker, twenty-seven made Phi Lambda Chi as

PHI SIGMA EPSILON, during 1952-53, enjoyed one of its best years since it has been on
the Northeastern Campus.
As usual, things got started with the annual fall smoker in October. The following week, the
Phi Sigs pledged a larger class than ever before in the fraternityis history. At the semester's
end thirty-five men were initiated.
Climaxing pledgeship were the annual "Help Week" projects. Each pledge spent twelve hours
in working on one or more of the projects, which included worthy tasks on the campus and in
the community, during the last week of pledgeship.
The highlight of the year, as far as the Phi Sigs were concerned, was the twenty-third annual
Frontier Dance. In order that the affair might appear as "frontierish" as possible, many of
the members followed the old Phi Sig custom of growing beards during the eleven weeks pre-
PAT EMERSON-Phi Sigma Sweetheart Phi Sigma Epsilon's annual smoker.

together with the Western style clothes everyone wore, made the dance a most enjoyable
event. Climaxing the evening's festivities was the crowning of the 1953 Phi Sig Sweetheart.
Of course there were other events during the year. The alumni reception at homecoming, pledge
"skip night" and several weekeend 'gget-togetliersu helped to round out the year.
Everywhere one looked, in the student government or in the many extracurricular activities,
the Phi Sigs were there doing their part.
Phi Sigma Epsilon, founded at Emporia, Kansas, in 1910, was incorporated into a national
organization of Phi Sigma Epsilon at Kansas City, Missouri, in 1927. Epsilon chapter replaced

tivities. Under the able guidance of Alice Berkshire, Dean
of Women, the Council passes and enforces regulations af-
fecting the approximately one hundred women students who
are members of sororities each year.
The primary purpose of the Council is the encouragement
of cooperation among the sororities on the campus. Three
representatives from each group meet as a body and work
together to strengthen the relations among all.
A concrete example of this is the annual sponsorship of a
scholarship contest among the three sororities. Grade averages
are kept, and an award is presented the group with the
