TI-IE PALETTE CLUB HE PALETTE CLUB, an organization of students interested in art, attempts to increase its understanding of art as well as to encourage the development of tech- nique, crafts, and special interests. At the first meeting of the old and the new members the executive committee was elected. The chairman, elected the preceding year, presided over the general meetings. Meetings were held at seven o'clock in the art room on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. During the first part of the year the organization drew up a new constitution, one more democratic in principle than the old one. The major activities of the year were confined wholly to individual craft work, such as: che making of braided purses, carving wooden plates, block printing and leather tooling. Decoration of the halls for the Christ- mas holidays was sponsored by the Student Senate. The last half of the year was spent in projects of individual interest. Plans were made for a trip to the Walker Art Gallery in the late spring. To raise money the club sold candy bars at a basketball game. lt also sponsored a display of contemporary American paintings for the student body. As a major social event of the year, Miss Greene served the Palette Club a buffet supper at her apartment, April 11. As the evening's entertainment the club attended the four one-act plays given by the Masquers. Somewhat later in the spring the last general meeting was held. Arrangements were made for the annual picnic as a conclusion to the year's work. This meeting was also devoted to the election of next year's chairman. Alberta M. Greene

SIGMA CHI SIGMA OR Sigma Chi Sigma 1940 marks the year of its birth. Fourteen members of the G. O. P., an organization which was formed in 1912 to promote school pep, drew up a constitution which embodied a threefold purpose. The Greek letters in the name of the organization suggest this purpose: to promote the social life of the individual member, to promote culture, and to render a definite service to the college. The members who are received into Sigma Chi Sigma must conform to the standards specihed in the constitution. Only sophomore, junior, or senior girls who are enrolled in a four year course, who maintain a scholastic average of 1.53 and who possess desirable personality and ethical traits, interest, and a capacity for leadership are considered eligible for the organization. An advisory board of three persons, one of whom must be a faculty member, is chosen by the organization to serve on a three-year plan. The senior member will be replaced each year by an adviser elected by the group. Miss Alberta Greene, Miss Helen Loeb, and Mrs. J. H. Owens were chosen to serve on the first advisory board. A freshman girl who displays outstanding capacity for leadership, scholastic ability, and personality traits, will be the recipient of the scholarship to be awarded each year on Honor Day by the organization. Although the organization of the club itself was the outstanding contribution of the Sigma Chi Sigma year of 1940, the girls sponsored various social events during the winter and spring terms. Sixty prospective candidates attended the rushing tea given in the Social Room on February 16. A buffet supper was served at the home of Mrs. H. Owens, March 3, in honor of the fourteen new members. Sigma Chi Sigma week, April 1 to 5, was an innovation on our campus. During this week all members wore their emblems, sponsored a Hnancial drive, and conducted a club talent program followed by a tea for the faculty women. A commencement banquet given by the members for the graduating seniors completed the calendar for the year. With the optimism that is characteristic of any new organization, Sigma Chi Sigma looks forward to assuming a genuine place in campus life.
