1967 of Alpha ()micron Pi at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan.

and the Jesuits made it the first outpost of civilization in the Northwest.
Then it became the citadel of the Lakes

and the battle-point between French, British, and Americans,
Stockades, blockhouses, forts and missions stand as a reminder of colonial
America, as do the landmarks of the early f u r trade—
the original homes of the Astors and the Biddies.
The use of horsedrawn carriages as the main mode of transportation
on the Island serves to link this historic past
with the modern accommodations and conveniences of present day.

For the past century Mackinac has been a famous summer resort,
and a royal welcome awaits us all
at the red-carpeted entrance of the Grand Hotel,
the world's largest summer hotel.
From the hotel's 880 foot long porch, the longest in the world,
one can enjoy a panoramic and breathtaking view
of the clear blue waters of the Straits of Mackinac.

Plans are already well underway with Geraldine Martindale King (Mrs.
Jack B . ) , Omega Omicron—Lambuth College
serving as International Convention chairman, ably assisted by local
convention co-chairmen from Detroit—
Irene Doherty Matheson (Mrs. All>ert), Omicron Pi—University of
Michigan and Vivian Hiltner Kreasky ( M r s . John T . ) , Psi—
University of Pennsylvania.

The collegiate chapters and alumnae groups in Michigan's District V I I I
will serve as hostesses for the convention. They include the collegiate
chapters of Beta Gamma—Michigan State University; Beta Pi—Eastern
Michigan University; Kappa Rho—Western Michigan University; Omicron
Pi—University of Michigan; the alumnae chapters of A n n Arbor,
Birmingham, Dearborn. Detroit, Detroit north suburban. Grand Rapids, and

Study Styles

vary from campus to campus and even within states. Thirty-nine chapters reported they sponsor
study halls of some kind. Twenty-six chapters do not conduct any study hall and believe that
studying is an individual concern. Twenty-eight chapters indicated that they give award dinners
of some kind, with many of these called bean-steak dinners.

Chapters who hold special campus scholarship awards are:

The search for the perfect scholarship program is as neverending as the search f o r the perfect
chapter. Yet, we of Upsilon Alpha—University of Arizona—feel that we have the best working
program we could possibly have. And we should. We've revised the program so many times
that everyone's lost count—and tempers, and time, and valuable study hours.

Our basic problem was, of course, that everyone studies differently. Some are bleary-eyed
night-owls crash-studying before the test and others, as regular as tuition fees, study in the
same place at the same time, all the time.

We tried the three-hour study hall four days a week, and people were writing letters and
bothering others. Undaunted, we tried the honor system which lasted one fun-filled and non-
studying week. The next meeting, Lyn Berry, intrepid scholarship chairman and brave soul,
announced the results of D-week testing. Three-quarters of the house were on the lists for
failing or below-average grades. Obviously, something was wrong. W e were not passing,
and if these grades were carried to the end of the semester, we wouldn't even collect the two
hundred dollars.

A f t e r much debate and thinking, we evolved a plan which we believe combines both the
honor system and a supervised study hall and also some side benefits.

Each collegiate on the D list must turn into the scholarship chairman a signed list of 25 hours
of studying by Friday night. I f the list is not in, the collegiate spends Friday night studying.
Twelve of these hours are from the supervised study hall, and the rest are signed study hours
with an active. The two study together anywhere they please. They study and during their
breaks get to know each other better.

Those not on the D list have no hours to turn in and no study hall to attend. Thus the honor
system and supervised study are combined in what we, of Upsilon Alpha, consider the best
of all possible study programs.

studying cards and require each collegiate to record her study
hours. Actives are required 15 hours a week and pledges
20. Also, all pledges are required to spend five of their
20 hours at supervised study tables, as are actives who
have not made sorority grade average or better the
previous semester. We are given one week to make up
a loss of study hours or supervised hours. We have
self-enforced quiet from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. Monday
through Thursday during which no radios or record
players are on and no visiting is permitted. A.W.S.
quiet hours are also enforced. Positive merits are given
for hours put in above the required and minus merits
are given for disregard of any of these rules. A t the end
of each semester a formal scholarship banquet is held
and the senior with the highest grade average is honored
by having her name engraved on the scholarship plaque.
A l l coUegiates with a 1.5 grade average or better are
given a red rose. Different kinds of "smarty flowers" are
given f o r grades of 2.0 or better and 2.5 or above.

P. s. DOES I T S E E M possible that another school year is about to draw to a
close ? I t has been a prosperous one f o r A O I I (witness news of colonies),
from the and I am indeed proud to have been a part of it.

T. S. Possibly you are thinking about the past two semesters, trimesters, or
three quarters with some nostalgia. But perhaps they also should be con-
by Wendie Nowlin sidered in light of the accomplishments, both individual and as a chapter.
Alpha Pi—Florida State University Before exams approach, it would be good to sit down as a chapter and
TRAVELING SECRETARY evaluate the past year. You will probably discover that many good but small
things have happened which, up to now, have gone unnoticed. Some un-
pleasant occurrences may also emerge, but they can be evaluated and some
thing worthwhile learned from the experience, I feel quite sure. Take out
those goals you set when the new officers were installed and see i f you are
on the right track. I f you have not set any chapter goals, then now is the
time to plan for the fall in these suggested areas : rush, scholarship, activities,
and the intangibles, enthusiasm, cooperation, service with a purpose.

But the year is not ended. There are still those exciting and frivolous
occasions which make spring one of the most memorable in one's college
career. For some there are May Day programs, spring formals, fraternity
weekends, initiation; the list is endless. Spring also brings Mother's Day;
a time when we honor our own mothers as well as those diligent members
of your chapter's Mothers' Club. Maybe some of you do not have one. This
would certainly be a good time to begin a club in your college town. Several
I have met in my travels are as hard working and dedicated as the alumnae.
Mothers' Clubs can he a real spark to chapter-community cooperation. T r y it

For a select few, this spring brings the close of four years in college which
many consider the most broadening four years in their lives and certainly
the most adventuresome so far. Campus life is like none other we will ever
live, and we can be particularly grateful that we have had a sorority as part
of it. I t truly makes leaving school even harder when you realize you are
leaving sisters of four years, most of whom you may never see again. Some,
you will rediscover when least expected.

But then, too, there are those new sisters you can get to know by becoming
active in alumnae chapters and clubs. I think this would be a real pleasurable
experience for an A O I I senior. Most become active alumnae, I believe, f o r
one of two reasons.

Number one would be because the alumnae in the college town where your
chapter was were dedicated and anxious to be of service to the chapter, and
you want to carry this spirit on in gratitude for what they gave you and your

The second might be that the alumnae at your school were inadequate in
support so that you have vowed and are determined to do better than they
wherever you are, so the same thing w i l l not reoccur to another chapter.
This is indeed a challenge to any A O I T senior now reading T O D R A G M A .
As I recall, you have taken vows to this effect. Now your opportunity has
come to do what is in your power to strengthen A O T J collegiate-alumnae
relations. The future rests with us. A r e you with me?

the invitation f r o m San Fernando Valley State College
to colonize on its campus. W i t h only six weeks to the
formal rushing, the task seemed formidable. Undaunted
by our competition of five established local sororities,
one national chapter, and a colony of a national, we began
immediately with our plans.

Under the leadership of Norma Marshall Ackel ( M r s .

Our 21 members began immediately to establish AOH
on campus. Their first venture was a booth in the Claim
Junipers, a money-raising project of campus, f r o m which
they realized a profit of $63.00. W i t h only six weeks of
organizing behind them, they entered the Homecoming
parade; the result being a float bringing them an honor-
able mention award.

The Sigma Phi colony members and escorts joined
their K©—U.C.L.A. sisters for a Christmas formal at
the Los Angeles Coconut Grove. This following a very
exciting luncheon for Founders' Day from which the
collegiates came away realizing what belonging to a na-
tional sorority could mean. They followed this with three
exchanges, one of these being a joint philanthropic p r o j -
ect with a fraternity. A Christmas party was given for
underprivileged children and everyone enjoyed playing
Santa Claus with stockings and Christmas candy.

The alumnae are eagerly awaiting the time when they
will be able to initiate these colony members they have
chosen and have so enjoyed working with their first year.

honorary members for colonization of the fifth collegiate
chapter in Ohio.

District V I alumnae and collegiates are excited at the
prospect of having a fifth collegiate chapter at Ohio
Northern University, Ada, and the probability of adding
a new alumnae club in the Ada area to our fraternity roll.

Ohio Northern University, founded in 1871, is
Methodist Church-related. Enrolled in the colleges of
liberal arts, engineering, pharmacy and law are 2000 f u l l -
time students, 600 women and 1400 men. Degrees granted
include bachelor of arts; bachelor of science; bachelor of
science in education; electrical, mechanical and civil
engineering ; pharmacy and law.

Nine national social fraternities and three NPC
sororities (AHA, AZ, ZTA) have chapters on the O . N . U .
campus. AOI1 will be the fourth women's fraternity.

January 28, 29, and 30 Ruth Lee Leichtamer (Mrs.

Alahlon P.), Past International President, and

Barbara Brown Reifeis ( M r s . Edward), B<3>, Collegiate

Director V I , visited the campus to interview women

students and pledge the new colony. Martha Roberts

Meyer (Mrs. Samuel L . ) , NO, the wife of President

Samuel L . Meyer of Ohio Northern University, enter-

tained area alumnae and prospective honorary members in

her home during the visit.

Twenty-two young women were invited to become the
first pledges of the Ohio Northern colony and 22 accepted
this privilege. Pledging, followed by a tea, was held Sun-
day, January 30, in the beautiful new student union,
Mcintosh Center. The pledges come f r o m 21 Ohio cities
and one is f r o m West Virginia.

We are very proud of the six women who have ac-
cepted honorary membership. Among them is Miss
Priscilla R. Morton, Dean of Women of O.N.U. Five
who will serve as chapter advisers are : Mrs. Joseph Elias,
Mrs. Lowell Weitz, Mrs. Walter Wood, Mrs. Harold
Cotsmire, all of Ada, and Mrs. George Robinson of
Kenton. Dean Morton was very helpful in arranging the
colonization visit.

The colony leads the other sororities in scholarship for
the fall quarter, having the highest point average of any
woman's group on campus.

Nestled in the scenic splendor of the rolling Appalach-
ian Plateau, Indiana University of Pennsylvania enjoys
the varied climate of the region which brings blazing hues
of the hardwood in the autumn, pure white of winter,
tinted pastels of early spring, and bright green of sum-
mer, all contrasted with the deep greens of pine.

The Christmas tree industry of relatively few decades
has expanded to the point where Indiana County is
known as the Christmas tree capital of the world.

W i t h an enrollment of 5.500, Indiana University of
Pennsylvania prepares students in the fields of art, busi-
ness, home economics, music, as well as the liberal arts
and the bachelor of science degrees in all the basic sec-
ondary and elementary fields. A large science research
laboratory is being constructed. Recently completed were
a dining hall and a spacious field house.

DR. H E R M A N B. W E L L S , Indiana University Chancellor, pictured at speakers table above,
welcomed the group and gave congratulations to Beta Phi chapter for its 50 years of service
to and life with the University. H e told the group, "The mission of your organization is as
great or greater than it has ever b e e n . " His speech accented the greater need for fraternal
groups within the University as the size of the school itself increases. Dr. Wells also
reminisced about his early days as a student when Beta Phi was a newly established
sorority on campus.

Ruth McClurg Brown (Mrs. Victor), collegiate director of District I X , gave a short
address asking members to remember that character, dignity and scholarship are the
foundations upon which Alpha Omicron Pi is founded.
Edith Huntington Anderson (Mrs. Arthur K . ) . Past International President, gave
an inspiring main address. Pledged to Beta Phi during its infancy, and knowing most
of the founders, Edith presented a glimpse of the history and early days when Beta
Phi became the sixth sorority on Indiana University campus one week before com-
mencement, June 2, 1916.
She also presented many interesting hits of insight into the trials and tribulations, as
well as the joy and sisterhood, of the young women who were the cornerstones of the
Beta Phi chapter. She also showed slides of the different homes that Beta Phi has
enjoyed and a picture of the ceremony which marked the burning of the mortgage on
the past chapter house which took place 25 years ago.
Following the luncheon, many members visited the Beta Phi chapter house, enjoyed
the birthdav cake and coffee.

It takes a pretty smart gal these days to figure the Social Security for her maid, with deductions
and reductions and heaven knows what else. You must know what else.


When your wealthy husband dies unexpectedly and leaves you with a couple of safety
deposit boxes filled with stocks and bonds and deeds to property, my dear, you must know
what you're doing or some smart lawyer may steer you into heavy losses.


W i t h travel as simple as it is now, here today and Rome tomorrow, you must know whether
to pack for skiing or surfing and whether to ask for fondue. You wouldn't want to embarrass
your husband's friends. You just have to know a lot about everything. Who knows, you may
sneak a visit to the Louvre for a weekend next summer and La Scala for an evening.


You almost need a master's degree in home economics to intelligently buy a dress — what

is he wearing a wool worsted, a silk sharkskin or a cashmere. You need to know if you are going
to point him out to your luncheon partner.

I f beta carotene is producing the color in juice drinks, before you expose your family to
it, you better bone up on your chemistry. Fumaric acid may be the big scoop in gelatin desserts,
but you'd better investigate before you serve it. Say, does everyone understand the role of food
irradiation? And what hungry man cares, you say? But then again, i f all the other women in
the block are on their toes about this great advance, is your husband's wife to be outdated? N O .

You may not have to be a nuclear physicist to get along with people, but just supposing you
marry one and all of his friends talk in formula, or is it formulae? It's really not so farfetched
when you see the budget allocated to the national space program. Your chances are getting better
every year.

They say that a salesman's greatest asset is not necessarily his ability and experience but
in many cases the business acumen of his wife. Why you have to be a musician, linguist, child
psychologist and physical ed enthusiast to lead a Rrownie troop these days, much less sparkle as
a dinner companion to notables.

It's a day when the mind is the most important frontier. Every guiding phase of our lives
is probing and delving into faster methods for reading, writing, and arithmetic. A career girl
finds this out fast for the competition is keen and the pay for the keenest keeps climbing higher
and higher. Shakespeare is not worthless background for there is a direct comparison with Lady
Macbeth and the actress on the horror show on television last night. W h y not be the alert one in
the group to predict the outcome?

Oh, what power you can have with knowledge. There is a current campaign among women
voters to familiarize the populace with government and history and political strategy. I t has been
estimated that the majority of our people have never read the C onstitution and that the vast
majority haven't read it but once, when forced to do so. I t establishes the rules by which we live.
They put up speed limit signs as rules, but the basic rules for our country go unnoticed. And how
does our Constitution compare or contrast with other nations? Could you enlist in the Peace
Corps or any corps without a working relationship with the seventh amendment ?

Find your own personal method to absorb this valuable knowledge. Make a date with yourself
for the library or post a curfew on your room door. Read aloud if it takes that double concentration
to get the message. Make notes of every page you've read or make up possible test questions f r o m

the days of the dumb blonde are over.
