Derby Day Derby Day is a service project at Tulane sponsored by the Alplia Omicron Chapter of Sigma Chi Fraternity. Its main purpose is, well . . . enjoyment, for lack of a better word. This past year, the fraternity, along with members of all seven Newcomb sororities raised a considerable amount of money for the Easter Seals Society of Louisiana. The money was raised by staging a number of exciting events including; a Walkathon, which was a ten mile walk by the sorority girls and the members of Sig- ma Chi to earn pledged amounts of mon- ey; an Ugly Sigma Chi Contest, which raised money by enticing passersby to vote for the " Ugliest " Sigma Chi member; and the Derby Day Dance, held at the Hilton Hotel and featuring musical guests Deacon John and the Ivories, as well as a Dance Contest (Keep on Gatorin ' !!). The week preceding Derby Day also featured non-charitable events and cul- minated in the fiercely competitive Der- by Day Field Events on November 15. At that time, the sorority members proved once again that they easily equal the frats in spirit and endurance. The field events featured several mock athletic events, in- cluding games with eggs, tricycles, hu- man bodies and oh-that-whipped-cream!! Budweiser provided the beer necessary to survive the day, as they did for the Walkathon. The week ' s festivities ended after the Saturday night dance, with the announce- ment that the Pi Phi ' s had successfully defended their year-old championship, this time narrowly squeaking by Kappa Kappa Gamma. Alpha Epsilon Phi and Sigma Delta Tau gained third and fourth places, respectively. In all, the Derby Day program for 1980 ended successfully and promised more good fun and impressive accomplish- ments in the future. Long live the Derby! 308

Screech Night Hands clapped to the blaring music as cameras flashed and champagne bub- bled. An evening of crying, singing, and screeching had just begun — the rushees finally became pledges. It was an exciting feeling to be standing in Bruno ' s on September 7, 1980, know- ing that the days of being a rushee were over. Never again would a rushee have to drink a cup of water or wear a Panhellenic nametag. The days of indecision were over; rushees could talk to actives at foot- ball games again. In the whirlwind of rush activities that climaxed on Screech night, rushees had no time to look ahead. As the rushees stood on tables, everyone thought about the -ongs and hoped the words being sung were the correct words. Screech night was a night to laugh, smile, and cry a Httle. 307
