12 When the Arithritis Foundation's
annual National Staff Conference was
held at the Essex House in New York
City and was followed by a volunteer
seminar, representatives arrived from
all over the United States.

Among these were AOII's Interna-

Kish Kurras (Mrs. Richard A., Alpha

executive director, Northwestern Ohio
Arthritis Chapter, Toledo, and Nita
Knox Wathen (Mrs. James E., Pi

Also taking part was Jane Wyman,
national campaign chairman for the

Award-winning film star. Miss Wyman,
a volunteer, had traveled cross country

The Broward County Alumnae Chap-
ter, through the efforts of Dorothy, was
the first group to have a fund-raising
cocktail-dinner party to raise money for
a specific purpose.

Working in cooperation with Dr.
Jacques Caldwell, head of the Rheu-
matology Department of the University
of Florida, where one of two clinical
research departments in the state is try-
ing to find a cause and cure for the
crippling disease, they purchased spe-

As a result of Dorothy's appeal, the
effort was followed closely by a dona-

EXPANSION

Can You Help?

Each One Of I s Is A Vital Part Of The Expansion
Program

by P E G G Y K R A M E R CRAWFORD, I ,
Extension Vice President

Growth in our fraternity has always been a most gratifying experience.

From year to year, our collegians, with the help of alumnae, work diligently to give young women the opportunity to
"go the A O I I way." Adding these new members to the rolls is always a satisfying experience.

Similarly the growth of our fraternity in terms of new chapters and colonies is also a most exciting development. The
thrill of seeing a group of college women develop as individuals guided by the relevant values and goals provided by Alpha
Omicron Pi is unsurpassed.

Equally rewarding for our alumnae is to find there are other AOIIs in the community, establish a chapter, and again
share that very special bond we have while, at the same time, promoting the growth and development of themselves, other
members and the community.
