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.

PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB HOTOGRAPHY, one of the most fascinating hobbies, has found a warm reception - in the hearts of River Falls students and faculty. As a hobby it has been growing rap- idly in all parts of the country for some time, and has definitely established itself on this campus. For several years the necessity of a photography club to consolidate and further the interests of those students who have adopted this aft as a hobby had been apparent on the campus. Since it was evident that students with common interests such as this were in need of a working organization, such a club was formed last year and continued enthusiastically this year. Charter members of last year's club formed the nucleus around which a very active organization of members has been built. In addition to using the club as a means of furthering a hobby the members have shown a keen desire to acquaint themselves with the principles and science of photography. Also, the club offered its members an opportunity to share common experiences, to Work side by side with common interests, and to form lasting friendships. The purpose of the club is "to foster a lasting interest in photography, and to practice good photographic technique." Club programs and activities throughout the year were arranged to carry out that purpose, both from an educational and recreational standpoint. Practical questions were mixed with the theoretical aspects of photography to make the programs of interest to everyone. ' Instruction in the science of photography by means of lantern slides formed the major part of the programs for the regular bi-monthly meetings. These slides, secured from the Eastman Kodak Company, presented to the members the experience and knowl- edge of professional photographers on the technical side of the subject. Darkroom tech- nique was also discussed and practiced. Members first took their pictures, then developed them, and Hnally printed and enlarged them. As a supplementary project the club sponsored a "Picture of the Month Contest," designed to give non-members as well as members an opportunity to display their prize works and enter into competition for a cash prize. Each month featured a different type of picture, such as portraits, still life, action, pictorial, snow scenes, and exterior night scenes. The members received valuable training through comparing pictures, and through the criticism of the judges. A backward glance over the year's achievement reveals a wealth of enjoyment and learning. New members learned enough about photography to be able to take and make their own pictures. Many of the "Student Life" pictures appearing in the Meleiean have been taken and developed by club members. To Dr. B. H. Kettelkamp goes much of the credit for the success of the club because of his kind cooperation and assistance. With his guidance the club looks optimistically forward to next year. Benjamin H.
