GAMMA, UNIVERSITY OF MAINE
Just after Christmas vacation ought to be a happy time to write,
and, although mid-year examinations are only three weeks away,
Gamma girls are happy, for after mid-years, about the first of
February, we shall be pledging our new girls. This year there is the
TO DRAGMA OF ALPHA OMICRON PI 211
excitement of the rivalry with our only sister sorority, Phi Mu. Be-
cause of strict Pan-Hellenic rules we cannot do much rushing except
to be just as sisterly and nice as we can to the little freshies. But,
that is what counts most in the end, the making of true friendships
with the new girls.
Each sorority is allowed one big rushing party to which all the
freshman girls may be invited. We chose to give a Hallowe'en
party. On account of other college affairs we held our party a week
before Hallowe'en but we bribed the ghosts and goblins to come
then, and I am sure there w:as not one absent. We kept the girls bob-
bing for apples, biting flour pies, and jumping over candlesticks un-
til they could be taken to the Den of Destiny, where only a few were
taken at a time, and from which few returned in a wholly calm and
cool condition. Our Den was in the cellar, and as we went down-
stairs we felt the cobwebs brush our cheeks. (When we took down
the decorations we found they were simply harmless threads). As
we reached the floor a horrible shrieking and wailing came to our
ears, as a ghost glided toward us and led us to view the remains of
Timothy Titcomb. We felt his shiny eye (a skinned grape), his ear,
his hip-bone, his leg, and his false teeth. Poor Timothy!
In our jolly days, as in our working days, we miss our newly
graduated alumnas. Christmas week Alice and June came back to
visit us, and Helen was here just before we went home. Tony
we have with us always, and we wish she could always stay. Peggy
Flint has brought us a big brother by marrying Lester Jacobs, and
going away off to Pennsylvania.
There have been happy days, but there were sad days, when our
sister Asenath left us. She was sick so short a time we scarcely re-
alized that she had gone, but we realize now as we miss the faithful
face at our chapter table. Girls, we must love each other all we can
now, for we do not know how long we can be together.

Merry Christmas! all our sisters! That is certainly the spirit
with which everything is permeated tonight. Our hard week of
examinations is over tomorrow—and our holidays hegin. Indeed,
judging by the number of girls who have already left, and the noise
that the rest of us are making, it might be judged that they had al-
ready begun. The spirit of restraint is gone; the Christmas spirit
Under the new rushing system this year, we had four parties—and
they surely were jolly ones this year. The expense for all of them
was limited by Pan-Hellenic to fifty dollars, and our rushing com-
mittee managed things so well that we had just about ten cents to
spare. We began with a picnic in one of our gorges at night, with
Japanese lanterns and an especially attractive camp fire—since our
old Elsa Guerdrum, now Mrs. Allen, was here to help us build it.
Our next party was a very home-like affair, which we who live in
large dormitories know how to appreciate. We secured the model
apartment of the Home Economics Building, which is model in every
respect, and had a rattling good time, especially when we threw open
the doors between the drawing room and dining room, and re-
vealed a real table, with a real table cloth, and real dishes—deco-
rated with the most adorable, i f somewhat immodest, Kewpies, that
simply could not "make their eyes behave." Our third party was
a theatre party, at the time one of the rare good shows came to
Ithaca. I t was a very good thing that some of us had to give up the
TO DRAGMA OF ALPHA OMICRON PI 213
evening to preparing the refreshments, which were served at Mrs.
Schmidt's, because the state of finances was such that we couldn't
have paid for tickets for everybody. The series of parties finished
with a flourish in our Hallowe'en party at the Country Club. I t
was delightfuly spooky even to the extent of a ghost who wandered
in a solitary fashion about the premises. The fortunes were told in
an original way for once, and were purely a matter of chance, yet
it was a subject to remark that all of them were really very consistent,
even to the initials of the men we were going to marry. And as a
result of the rushing season, we initiated on November 18, our six
new girls, of whom we are justly proud. They proved how clever
they were by giving us an entertainment after their first regular
meeting—an exposition of multiple personalities under the effects
of hypnotism in which the subjects took on the characteristics of
their dearest friends, and we saw ourselves " as ithers see us."
We have had many delightful gatherings this term, not least of
which was a quiet though rather thrilling evening at Mrs. Schmidt's,
when Professor Schmidt, who has the reputation of being the most
learned professor at Cornell, regaled us with the most fascinating
and extraordinary ghost stories we had ever heard. Then, in joint
celebration of Founders' Day and Christmas, we had a party in our
chapter room, which was virtually changed into an evergreen bower
for the occasion, through the zeal of our "frosh" who lugged a well-
grown Christmas tree from the woods. We all had presents on the
tree, worth five cents and the efforts of the committee, who attached
nonsense rhymes to each, increasing their value several hundred per
And now, i f I don't stop, I shall miss my homeward-bound train,

(Officers of Women's Organizations at N . U . same as in November To
We must tell you about the good times our girls have been having
together since our last letter to T o D R A G M A , for we have been very
214 TO PRAGMA OF ALPHA OMICRON PI
busy getting better acquainted with our new sisters. First, there
was our annual pledge luncheon at Marshall Field's where we
proudly introduced the new girls to several of the Chicago alumna;
who met with us at the dainty luncheon. Then came our cozy little
dance in honor of our pledges, held at the Evanston Woman's Club.
Weren't we proud of them too, when in the "pledge extra" only the
pledges and their partners were on the floor while the rest of us
admired! Hazel McCoy from Greensburg, Ind., a Theta sister, has
been in Chicago the last few months and we all welcomed her at
the dance. Edna Betts, Betty Hiestand, Vera Riebel, Louise Nor-
ton French, Estelle Martin and Marie Vick were with us, too.
Two weeks later our pledges became really and truly A O n's at
the ceremony held in Mrs. Row's home. Here we initiated Louise
Noyes, our jolly P. G. ( I wish you could hear her sing), Ruby
Peek, Esther Vincent, Katherine Aldrich, Athene Nachtrieb, Ruth
Bond and Gertrude Nizze. Twenty six Alpha O's sat down to the
little round tables decorated with our flower, at the initiation ban-
quet held at the "Red Rowen Inn." Caroline Piper Dorr, Julia Nor-
ton, Avaline Kindig, Marie Vick, Elizabeth Hiestand, Vera Riebel,
Hazel McCoy, Estelle Martin, and Marguerite Symonds, all were
there to join in the songs and be proud of Alpha O. Of course,
the toasts were witty, and the songs the pledges had written, clever!
For every Rho pledge is required to compose the words for an A O I I
song, or words and music, and stand alone to sing it at the initiation.
This ordeal always brings groans when announced to the unmusical
and unpoetical, but no one has ever succumbed.
Just before the girls went home for vacation we had our annual
Christmas party at Marie Vick's. Each of us had drawn a name
and bought some toy, attaching a limerick or joke to the little present.
The gifts were put in a huge tarlatan stocking, and as our names were
called we must step to the center of the expectant circle, and read
the sometimes embarrassing jokes. Later the toys were collected and
sent with food and clothing, to children in the Chicago slums where
the Northwestern settlement is located.
Julia Fuller has been appointed chairman of the social committee
of the senior class in college and will plan all the festivities when the
class of 1914 meets for its last celebrations.
Examinations are approaching and we must pick up all the stray
ends of knowledge necessary, and not be among the number "who
have not let study interfere with their college education."
May the year 1914 be f u l l of happiness and success for all our
sisters in Alpha O.

LAMBDA. LELAND STANFORD JR. UNIVERSITY
Tomorrow ends our first semester, and so crowded with events
has it been, that it seems fully six months since Lambda last told
of her doings to To D R A C M A .
On October 1, we celebrated the installation of the new President
of Stanford University, Dr. Branner. The installation services were
held in the morning out of doors in the inner quadrangle and at-
tended by a large assemblage. I n the afternoon a reception was given
in the inner quadrangle for President and Mrs. Branner, at which
several Alpha O's helped receive. And in the evening a torch light
procession accompanied President Branner from his home to the
inner quadrangle, where a concert was held.
Pan-Hellenic bidding day was October 11, and Lambda is proud
of her three freshmen, Edna Brown, Marvel Brydolf, and lone
Titlow, bid and pledged on that day. They were initiated on
October 27, and are now true Alpha O's. We were very glad to
have Gertrude Beeger, '09, one of our alumna;, with us for the
initiation. Since then we have bid and pledged another girl of
whom we are very proud, Geneva Morse. She is half freshman and
half sophomore, and made the sophomore play committee this se-
Those of us interested in football have watched a long and inter-
esting season of Rugby. On October 22 and 25 we were defeated by
scores of 45-0 and 56-0 by the Ail-Star New Zealand team, who are
the world champion "Ruggers." But the game which is the largest
athletic event of the year, and of which we are particularly enthusi-
astic this year, was held here against the University of California on
November 8. The score was 13-8 in our favor. We entertained the
Sigma chapter and their alumna-, and the Lambda alumnae, and many
friends for luncheon that day, about a hundred in all. I t seemed so
good to have the Sigma girls with us again. Many of them stayed
over night and attended the football show, "The Winning of
The semester has been one of many dances, formal and informal.
On October 3, the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, who are our near-
est neighbors, entertained Lambda chapter at an informal dance,
that was too enjoyable to be soon forgotten. We gave a dance for
our new freshmen on November 15, inviting the Phi Delts, and
a few extra men. On November 21 the sophomore cotillion was
held at Encina Hall, Minna Vrang, one of our sophomores was on
the committee, and every one of our fourteen girls who went, pro-
nounced it a wonderful success. Since we are only allowed to have
216 TO DRAG MA OF ALPHA OMICRON PI
dances during the week-ends, there is always a great scramble at
the beginning of the year to sign up for dance dates in the Date Book.
We secured January thirtieth for our formal, and since the invitations
went out last week, we are already getting excited about the dance.
One o f our seniors, Eileen Everett, has received several honors
lately. She was elected president of the Campus Lane Clinic Auxil-
iary. I t is a society which co-operates with the Lane Clinic Aux-
iliary, which is connected with the Stanford Medical School, to keep
a social service worker from Stanford in the Lane Hospital in San
Francisco. Eileen was also elected by the local association as dele-
gate to the Christian Student Volunteer Convention to be held at
Kansas City this Christmas. And best of all, Eileen is to be the

To get back to the meeting—we had ritual, initiation (with Vera

Our October meeting followed the annual Pan-Hellenic luncheon
at Evanston on October 16. This is always an attraction to Alumnae
as well as active fraternity women in and around Chicago, so we
took advantage of it in getting the girls together. I t was bigger
than ever this year and the speakers from the National Pan-Hellenic
Congress were interesting and inspiring.
We decided that our local alumna work should be charity, and
that we would devote part of our meetings to work for hospital
children. Therefore, on the Friday after Thanksgiving, we met at
one of the downtown hotels and made picture books. We had each
been notified to bring cut-out pictures and our indefatigable Vera

November, Mrs. Reynolds was hostess. Aside from a short business
session, the afternoon was spent socially, "new Christmas ideas" being
the main topic of conversation. Our holiday meeting was with
the "Pipers" and was especially enjoyable, since so many of the
girls, whose teaching takes them out of Lincoln, were present. In
January, Mrs. Fred Hunter entertained the chapter. Now that

is ready for use, we plan to do some work for the North Side
