The initiatory services for new members in November and March followed banquets held in Mount Vernon Dining Hall. The outstanding number on the fall banquet program was a panel discussion, “Our English Beautiful”, by Mrs. P. A. Maxwell, Mrs. W. D. Albert, Mrs. L. B. Mathews, and Mrs. J. W. Tyler. The spring banquet brought a former member, Dwight Waldo, as guest of honor to address the group on a topic relative to the influence of political situations on literature.
Two major projects of the year were the Christmas and spring editions of “Sifting Sand”, a magazine of Peru verse, which is printed on the local chapter’s printing press.
In December Sigma Tau Delta Members presented Anna Best Joder’s play, “The Perfect Gentleman”, as a Convocation program.
At the close of the school year the fraternity awarded a medal to the freshman writing the best prose selection during the school year.
