ALPHA PHI DMEGA Alpha Phi Omega is a national service frater- nity dedicated to service to the student body and faculty, to youth and community, to members of the fraternity, and to the nation as participating citizens. Delta Beta chapter is one of the 118 chapters located in colleges and universities throughout the United States. Being a service fraternity. Alpha Phi Omega crosses all lines of honorary, social and profes- sional fraternities, and thus members of other campus organizations may also be active in this one. There are two fu ndamental requirements for active membership: first, that the student has had previous experience in the Scout Movement; and second, that he prove an earnest desire to render service to others. Delta Beta Chapter at Oklahoma University was organized during the fall term of 1942 with 27 active charter members, but because of the war became inactive the spring of 1943. When veterans returned to the campus, the chapter was reactivated in 1946 with ten active members. Dr. E. Thayer Curry. Mr. Clifford M. Baumback. and Mr. Everett P. True.x are active as faculty advisors to Delta Beta Chapter. Mr. H. B. Par- sons, field scout executive, is scouting advisor. The chapter now has 36 active members and five alumni members. In brief, these are several of the projects Al- pha Phi Omega has handled this year. They have supervised evening swimming periods in the University men ' s pool for the boy scouts in this area. They aided veterans in filling terminal leave forms, in conjunction with the American Legion. They aided in securing blood donations at the University and assisted in several Student Senate elections. They operated a booth in the Union lobby and canvassed the fraternity and independent men ' s houses for the Tuberculosis Christmas Seal Drive. Alpha Phi Omega as- sisted the March of Dimes drive, sponsored the " Ugly Man " contest in this drive, and also han- dled the Student Senate referendum on Frontier Days with the exception of counting the votes. The success of Alpha Phi Omega depends en- tirely upon the leadership given by the members in the promotion of its service program. A great majority of the members are very active in other campus activities and organizations, but by be- ing aware of the keen responsibility vested in them as active members, have helped make this a most successful year for Alpha Phi Omega.

Alpha Lambda Delta is a national honorary fraternity for freshman women. It was founded at the University of Illinois in 1924. It became a nationwide organization two years later. The University of Oklahoma chapter, which was one of the first established, was chartered in 1924. Membership requirements are entirely schol- astic. To be eligible, a freshman woman must have a 2.5 average for her first semester work. with a minimum of fourteen hours credit. A stu- dent may also be pledged if she has a 2.5 aver- age for her entire freshman year. Members are active until they become juniors, at which time they are classified as collegiate alumnae. The local chapter was founded under the spon- sorship of Dr. Jewel Wurtzbaugh. Professor of English. It has two formal pledgings and in- itiations yearly, one during the first semester and one during the second. Alpha Lambda Delta works with Mortar Board in checking house and individual grade averages and in sponsoring the traditional Mor- tar Board walkout. The walkout is held during the fall semester. Members of Alpha Lambda Delta, dressed en- tirely in white, follow those of Mortar Board. The two groups, leading a procession of women, walk from Administration Hall to Owen Sta- dium, where awards are given to the ten out- standing freshman women of the previous year. Mary K. Marks, historian, was named top coed from the 1945-46 freshman class. A lighted candle is the symbol of the Frater- nity. The pin. which is in this shape, has four pearls and a ruby, with the Greek initials at the base. It may be worn as an individual pin or as a guard for another one. National activities include the sponsorship of a tutoring system and the recognition of the member who makes the highest grades for her freshman year. Alpha Lambda Delta meets monthly in the AWS room. The president, in addition to her regular duties, serves as chairman of the schol- astic committee of Associated Women Students. Members of the frfeshman honorary fraternity are often later selected for Mortar Board. Page 420

BAPTIST STUDENT UNION The Baptist Student Union of the University of Oklahoma is composed of students who hold membership in any of the organizations of the local Baptist churches of Norman. The B.S.U., a Southwide movement, has organizations on most of the campuses of the South. It developed some years ago as the link between the college student away from his home church and the Baptist church in the college town. One of the chief purposes of the B.S.U. is the enlistment of every Baptist student in the college church. This work is carried on by groups of church-interested students who seek to contact every Baptist on the campus and en- list him in church activities. Social and recreational life is given due con- sideration by the B.S.U. Each year a number of picnics, parties, and banquets are sponsored by the Student Union. The climaxing social event of the Baptist Students ' year is the Spring ban- quet, always among the most festive and beauti- ful banquets of the school year. Usually at- tended by more than 200 people, the main inter- est of the banquet is the installation of the fifteen officers of the Baptist Student Union Council. Provided for University students by the Bap- tists of Norman and Oklahoma is the Student Center on Boyd near the President ' s home. The building has been enlarged this year to accommo- date the larger enrollment of Baptist students. The erection of a building to cost $100,000 is contemplated by Oklahoma Baptists for the near future. The principal matter of interest of the B.S.U. is the developing of the spiritual life of a college student while he is growing mentally. All of the activities of the B.S.U. have at the center the developing of strong Christian character. The Baptist Student Union, in its very broad- est meaning, is the voluntary religious activities of the Baptist students within the schools and universities of the South, as provided for and promoted by Southern Baptists. Each Baptist preference student in the Uni- versity of Oklahoma is a potential member of the Baptist Student Union. Features of the year ' s activities include the ' Welcome Party at the beginning of the school year, the State Baptist Student Convention, a Thanksgiving Service and Breakfast, and a formal Christmas banquet. The officers are: President. Arthur McEl- murry; Vice President. Bill Fisher: Secretary, Kathleen Hough: Treasurer. W. P. Sturgis; Pastor Advisor, Rev. E. F. Hallock: and Faculty Advisor. Dr. J. O. Hannes Malthanes. Page 422
