This was the dedication of a plaque honoring the founding of Kappa Omicron Phi, on this Northwest Missouri State College campus, December 11, 1922. The plaque was presented to Alpha chapter at the national conclave in Albu- querque, New Mexico on August 13, 1955.

Mrs. Ann Bridgewater was the delegate of Alpha chapter to attend the national conclave at Albu- querque. Kappa Omicron Phi held their annual coffee hour for the alumnae during Homecoming. Miss Mabel Cook, sponsor of Alpha chapter and National President, journeyed to Kearney, Nebraska, on November 19, 1955, to install Alpha Omicron chapter of Kappa Omicron Phi. Those accompanying her were Ann Bridgewater, Carolyn Mix, Erma Dean Grabill, and Betty Cooksey. Miss Cook and the girls were in charge of the initiation of the members and the installation of the officers. Founders Day, December 11, was observed with the traditional candle lighting service and a dessert party. A plaque honoring Miss Anthony was dedi- cated and a photograph of Miss Anthony was un- veiled by the president, Ann Bridgewater. " Mopsy " was the name of the doll for which each member made a costume. Mopsy and her wardrobe were given away as a door prize at the benefit tea on December 15. The senior members of Kappa Omicron Phi were honored by the actives with a banquet in May.

Probably the most enjoyed was Mary Rolf ' s report on her sum- mer school attendance at the University of Colorado. The next meeting was utilized in getting every- one ' s ideas for the use of the program committee in formulating the year book. The club selected the theme " We Look Forward To Teaching. " The ap- pointment of committees for Homecoming and the annual decision with regard to which activities would demand the club ' s time were also dispatched. An entry was registered in the window decoration con- test. Bev Crane ' s idea, " Secret of the Shifting, Whispering Sands, " ignited a spark of enthusiasm, and was accepted unanimously. Miss Gorsuch and Mrs. Graham were in charge Page of the first theme meeting, " Off To A Good Start. " The club made and sold candy at the District Teachers Meeting in October. In November the group was a guest of F.T.A. and enjoyed slides on Japan, Alaska, and Hawaii. The Christmas meeting was both a party and a candle light initiation ceremony for new members. Two educational films about past and present teaching methods were enjoyed by the group early in January. The club combined with A.C.E. and F.T.A. to hear an inspirational talk by Mrs. Easton during Religious Emphasis Week. One of the most memorable pro- grams was Teresa Esteban ' s talk about schools and life in Argentina. Shades of green were in evidence at the Student Union to celebrate the St. Patrick ' s day party.

Colhecon inatched the record enrollment of the col- lege v ith a membership drive of its own. Twenty- seven freshman and sophomore Home Economics majors were initiated into the club in an impressive candlelight ceremony at the October meeting. Together with Kappa Omicron Phi, the club par- ticipated in the Homecoming activities by serving the Home Economics alumni luncheon, and by entering in the window decoration contest. Also during Homecoming week, Jaunita Myrtue successfully directed the major money-making proj- ect, which increased Colhecon ' s bank account by nearly eighty dollars. Roasting wieners and marshmallows was conducive to making new friends at the Kappa Omicron Phi — Colhecon annual picnic at the college park in Sep- tember. This annual social event serves as a formal welcome to freshmen and transfer Home Economics students. Dorothy Evans and Sandra Bill, along with all the new members, carried out one of their initiation duties by promoting the annual Christmas party. Everyone enjoyed some peppy games, and then came the oh ' s and oh ' s during the gift exchange. The party was topped off by attractive and tasty home- made refreshments.
