MRS. C. CAROLYN AUSTIN
Upsilon Kappa is twenty-one years old this school year! It was organized as school service club
in the year l927-1928 by Mrs. Austin, who has been advisor continuously through the twenty-one years. The
membership includes Senior girls only.
The Ushers' Club has three main objectives. The first is school service. The girls serve as ushers and
hostesses or guides for school functions, and maintain a hostess table in the main corridor every period
of each school day. They have ushered at many affairs in the city such as Community Lecture courses.
Symphony concerts, Civic Chorus Concerts, Children's Theater, Community Thanksgiving service at
the Keeney Theater, etc.
The U. K. girls maintained a telephone switchboard at Parley Coburn when it was necessary to
have some high school classes there. During depression years the Club secured clothing and books for
special cases, especially party clothes for those unable to have themg and at Christmas and Thanks-
giving, has provided food and toys for some special families.
During the war years, Ushers' Club members served as air raid wardens, assisted with air raid drills,
collected materials t3 truck loadst for hospital slippers, and were in charge of the entire country scrap key
collection for war metals t2,0UO lbs. keys collectedh. ln addition the Club sent El-So-Hi and Yearbook
copies to former students who were in the Service.
The second objective is to give members training in courtesy, poise, self-control in meeting emerg-
enciesg to foster tolerance, fairness, responsibility, and to learn how to be a desirable Club member.
The third objective is to have social affairs with interesting programs, without having expensive
functions, and without incurring large indebtedness. These affairs have included tea dances fvery popular
for several yearsl, picnic suppers, with all kinds of demonsfrations and discussions, special assemblies, etc.
After the first year or two, the Club adopted a uniform to be worn when "on duty." This was a tailored
cotton coat, of either blue or dark red color with contrasting trim. These uniforms were worn each year
until war scarcities forced the Club to discontinue them.
Members may join in May of lunior year in order to serve as ushers at Senior Day and Commence-
ment that vear. These are provisional members. ln September each year, the Club is re-organized and
includes all Senior girls who wish to join.
The club has become well known in this community and even outside Elmira. The E. F. A. club
was modeled from S. H. S. club. Ithaca organized a club after the school superintendent visited Southside
High School and saw Upsilon Kappa in action.
