Rushing Format Changes To Encompass All AOIIs And Greek World As Whole
By Peggy Kramer Crawford (Mrs. Richard C. I) International Rush Chairman
If you have been an alumna for five years or more, and go back for a visit during Rush W eek, it is pos- sible that you wouldn't recognize the rushing format on many cam- puses.
Gone are the elaborate decora- tions, costumes and funny skits. In most cases they have been replaced by a somewhat modified theme with posters on display boards which, among other things, offer greater opportunities for conversation.
On a few campuses even these items are missing and the collegiates and rushees sit around in groups and rap for the whole length of the party.
These changes were prompted by the change in rushees and for what they are searching.
Of course some of our chapters have not felt a need to change their parties. Their rushees would be dis- appointed if there was no evidence of the clever ingenuity of a group that can be displayed in theme dec- orations.
And then too, they need the op- portunity to laugh a bit. Updating the parties hasn't changed the need for back-up help from the alumnae. From reading rush reports, it's evi- dent that collegiates appreciate their support.
The slide show is a huge success on some campuses; on others, this form of entertainment has become "old hat."
The aim of the slide show is to demonstrate pictorially what it's like to be a student on a particular cam- pus and a member of AOII there.
Scenes of the community, cam- pus, registration, classes, chapter activities; candids of members un- packing, studying, sleeping, playing and receiving honors and awards; plus looks at their parents, boy friends, philanthropy, alumnae^ tra- ditions, as well as looks at other AOII facilities, make up the con- tents of these shows. Some have musical backgrounds. A l l have nar- ration. Hollywood theme, complete with director, theater and ushers may be the setting for these shows,
or then again, there may be no theme at all. The secret of success here is: It must be a good show and contain some humor.
Regardless of the wide variation in format, collegiates have been de- veloping a philosophy of rush that goes far beyond the mechanics of giving a party. It is still vitally im- portant that our members exhibit good manners, dress appropriately, be courteous, but something more is needed.
AOII Stressed
it is the responsibility of AOII chap- ters everywhere to work with other Greeks on their individual campuses to improve the image of the whole system. This is one of the most effective ways to increase rush ap- plications.
Another fact has become more apparent. Rush is by no means a formal rush week program alone. The collegiate must ever be on the lookout for prospective members in their classes, at their activities, on dates and parties. They may take a program right into the dormitories to inform and stimulate interest in the Greek system.
All the while they are busy being
the gracious hostesses, they must
show rushees what a great thing we
have in AOII, thereby demonstrat- ticipate in the chapter's philan-
ing the value in being a member. I'm sure many of you alumnae are saying, "That's always been the idea. There's nothing new about

numbers of rushees on most cam-
puses, the pressure becomes greater,
and the competition keener. This practice of holding Alpha Hour has prompted the collegiates to re-
evaluate their rushing practices and
I think AOII on an international scale always has had a reputation for being a "friendly" group. You have no idea how many times I see this word in reports when I ask for an evaluation of rush. Now in ad- dition to becoming a friend of the rushee, our AOII collegiate must see that she also is informed on all phases of Greek living, and espe- cially made aware that we are not a "social club," but a vital organiza- tion that makes a valuable contribu- tion to its members and to the world in which we live.
In a time of keener competition when fewer prospective members are signing up for rush, our mem- bers have come to realize that they must suppress the competitive spirit in favor of promoting a spirit of cooperative effort among the Greek groups.
Greeks Challenged
In most cases, it is the entire Greek system that must improve their public relations program, and
regularly, a time devoted to sub- jects of particular interest to the majority of girls. Usually these pro- grams include self-improvement, a controversial speaker, a favorite in- structor, a career girl in some inter- esting profession, as guest speaker, etc. Here again is the opportunity to entertain rushees.
On campuses where there are no sorority houses or suites, collegiates must find other ways to get better acquainted with prospective mem- bers. They may take them to cam- pus activity sessions, campus events, musical, sports, theatrical, ad- dresses, as well as strictly social wiener roasts, pizza parties and the ever popular coke date. Sometimes fraternities may offer their houses for a rush function, and in some cases, the homes of generous, gra- cious alumnae are utilized.
The tone then, for today's rush, calls for more meaningful and in- formative conversations; having f u n while showing the prospective mem- ber what being Greek is all about. Each member is a public relations expert for the Greek system.
Rushees may be invited to par-
Many chapters have adopted the

Rushing Displays Invite Discussion r
In keeping with the trend and need for all aspects of rushing to be more informal, informative and low-keyed, collegiates, over the nation and in Canada, are finding that rush displays at parties featuring various aspects of our sorority meet a number of these requirements and lead into conversation about AOII, its ideals, goals and commitments. The rushee at right is examining an attractive display of sorority jewelry, while the potential sorority member, at left, is impressed with AOII's awards and honors.
The collegiates and alumnae can do great things on the home front to improve the Greek image. In those areas where the high school information tea is no longer well attended, the alumnae must follow the collegiate trends and work on a less formal basis.
Suggest to your city Panhellenic organization or, in the absence of such a body, to another AOII or Greek that the local chapter of the National Honor Society, activities clubs, vocational organizations, High Ys and similar groups be contacted.
Offer yourselves as a program for one of their meetings to talk about the Greeks and answer their in- quiries. I f there is a collegiate o n the scene, so much the better.
Perhaps you and your fellow alumnae would prefer to invite
small groups of college-bound girls and their mothers to your homes for coffee and information. Take every opportunity to spread the word to seniors' parents at social functions, meetings, over the phone, and even at the grocery store.
More and more campuses are suggesting summer rush contacts and parties. The alumnae and col- legiates must get together on this in their respective communities and work out a program. They must de- cide whether one big splash or sev- eral small get togethers is advisable. Who will be invited? The role of the alumna in rushing is important.
Quite naturally, activities of the local alumnae chapter can always do much to add lustre to the Greek image.
V oluntary recommendations are absolutely necessary! Collegiate rush chairmen from all over the country have asked me to do whatever I can to increase the flow of this informa- tion from the alumnae.
Included in this issue is a special form for informing our collegiate chapters about any college-bound girls with whom you are personally acquainted.
Please, do your collegiate sisters a big favor and send them such i n - formation on the enclosed form. Even if a school has deferred rush send the word in the fall because, the sooner a chapter has informa- tion with which to work, the sooner they can set the machinery of rush- ing into motion. Your help is needed!

"Next comes selling this feeling to others. I f the chapter shows their feelings for each other then the sell can be the soft sell. Just be your- selves. Show your individuality yet let the rushees know that you have gotten together because of your be- lief in AOII."
"The final thing to remember is that rush does not last just for two weeks, but is a year-round activity. You rush by yourself, being friendly and outgoing, by taking an interest in your campus and community, your studies and your friends. This then, is the beautiful simplicity of rush."
DEE GARDNER AA, makes some general observations- on the now trends in rush. She writes:
"SLIDE SHOWS: These have gone over well for many chapters and very poorly for others. We must remember that our rush parties are designed to rush and entertain the rushees and not the members. I f a slide show is full of sisters whom rushees don't know, with no dia- logue, with nothing with which they feel they can identify, the sisters will enjoy it and laugh and have a good time. But what about the rushee? She feels left out, instead of making her feel at home, you've made her feel awkward. Why not include the familiar scenes, some rushees, if you're oh a later rush, and dialogue that brings them into the picture, answers their questions, makes them feel: T fit in here; this is where I belong.'"
"THE 'TALK PARTY': The stress now seems to be more on not entertaining the rushee, but rather on getting to know her and letting her get to know you ... the talk party. This is great, but don't forget that you're an AOII and that's what you should stress when it comes to getting to know you. The girl has come through rush to learn about sorority life—so give her some infor- mation. Bringing AOII into the con- versation is not nearly as awkward if AOII is all around the room in displays, pictures, etc. Why should a rushee be interested in AOII, if you seem ashamed to display it and talk about it?"
now, some chapters have gone to a more natural form of entertainment. Show off your talent—ah entertain- ment committee which puts to- gether a selection of songs and dances; a coffee house theme with sisters who entertain along these lines."
KRIS WAHLBERG Y says, "It is the purpose of rush to generate within an individual a desire to par- ticipate. Students seek a blend. Paradoxically, they look for, and at the same time, avoid the opportunity to encounter and contribute."
"However, they need a meaning- ful release and sometimes that is just letting the 'good times roll."
"It should be obvious that rush is a constant action that does not be- gin, or end, with a passage of time. It is in actuality, a process of learn- ing. It is a state of mind, when we are living, we are rushing. The key isnotwhatwedo,buthowwedo it and how well we do it."
"When someone attends a rush function, they have demonstrated a fragmentary interest. It is necessary to cement this feeling, a process that continues beyond initiation. Through the years, many chapters have found that our best rush func- tions are not created. They are allowed. By opening nomal activi- ties to non-members, we show what it is to be an AOII."
"Ideal rush functions are typified by organized spontanuity. They are entertaining, perhaps relevant, and most of all, enjoyable. A n effective rush program allows a guest to iden- tify with a group through songs, themes, conversations and activities. Anything from a taco feed to a speaker on liberation of men, wom- en and children is a beautiful rush exposure.
"Before we begin to market our product effectively, we must be cer- tain of the content. Our first rush function begins at home. W e must want to participate. W e must allow ourselves to show one another. W e must be aware of and fulfillour own concepts of sorority. When we are confident of the quality we offer, we will have no difficulty sharing it with someone else. Then we will not be limiting our efforts to waiting f o r those who seek the traditional Greek life. W e will have succeeded in reaching many more who, like ourselves, desire the reality of change and progress."
DEB MATHIS ASl hopes that To Dragma's rush issue emphasizes getting away from the standard idea of rush which puts fear in the col- legiates and guests.
She declares, "I've found that most chapters are so conscious of rushing a girl, that they fail to look at her as a person who they gen- uinely want to know. Too often they concentrate on impressing a girl, rather than sharing feelings and ex- periences."
"Throughout the nation today as rushing changes, chapters seem to be searching for new ideas and new methods of showing the meaning of sorority membership. The concept of rush is so often mistaken for a rigid question-answer situation where superficially people commu- nicate. How often is it a relaxed time when collegiates and rushees really share ideas, background and information and really enjoy it?"
"The word for rush today must be 'involvement'. Chapters who are truly successful in rush have found the secret and know what involve- ment is. Not only must a rushee feel involved in the group, but each sorority member must feel this same involvement. A 'campfire' at Phi Beta Chapter was a beautiful way of combining issues of today with values of AOII in a discussion of brotherhood, friendship and love. I t suddenly became a group of people rather than rushees and collegiates."
"Sharing AOII with others must be something more than just a spoken promise to a rushee. They must feel and see it by being in- volved."
CINDY HOWLAND £A has this to say, "Travelingcoast to coast and averaging one rush party a week for an entire year gives a Traveling Secretary quite a good look at rush as it has been carried out on the college campuses. Colleges vary in size and rush varies as to the time of year, but basic goals remain the same: to plan a situation to make rushees want to join AOII, become interested members and active leaders."
To Dragma of ALPHA OMICRON PI--SUMMER of 1971
"All the plans in the world can
do no good unless the chapter is which are often considered silly
'psyched' and ready for rush. First of all, before any rushing can be done, the chapter members must know each other. They should be able to convey a feeling of respect for their sisters and enjoyment in doing things together. I f they have these essential ingredients then the rest comes rather easily."

the need of so many chapters on campuses in metropolitan areas to reassess rush techniques.
Louisa is herself, a product of just such a chapter and campus. She was graduated from Wagner College, Staten Island, New York, where she served as president of Theta Pi.
"Emphasis, in these chapters," says Louisa, "should be placed on informal, rather than formal rush. Every member must feel that she is a walking advertisement for AOII."
"A Panhellenic spirit, also, is of vital importance. Greeks must pull together, rather than pull apart."
Following her graduation from Wagner in 1963, Louisa obtained her Master's Degree in Education from Rutgers University. She has taught high school biology for six years and presently is teaching in Hartford, Connecticut.
She has served as president of the Hartford Alumnae Chapter and Panhellenic delegate for two years. Last year she served as president of the Greater Hartford Panhellenic organization.

colleges with sorority houses and dormitory suites in a 500-mile area from Michigan to Maryland.
"This variety has given Region I I much resource material on new and innovative rush ideas to share be- tween chapters," says Mary. "Rush teams have traveled from chapter to chapter to give that added boost during rush. Ideas have flowed freely from rush chairman to rush chairman, and from me, as Regional Rush Officer."
"I have visited chapters in A n n Arbor, Michigan, (Omicron Pi), Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, (Sigma Rho), and State College Pennsylvania (Epsilon Alpha) to share ideas with collegiates and alumnae."
"Communication is the key to the effectiveness of the Regional Rush Officer and, through communica- tions, we've shared many ideas throughout the region. The Re- gional Convention in Harrisburg gave me an excellent opportunity to rap with collegiates and alumnae about AOII and the Greek system."
Mary was graduated from the U n - iversity of Michigan School of Nurs- ing in 1964. She was a member of Omicron Pi Chapter and later alum- nae adviser to this group.
In 1967 she moved to Pittsburgh and received a Master of Nursing degree from the University of Pitts- burgh. Currently she is instructor of pediatric nursing at the University of Pittsburgh.
In August she will become Mrs. James J. Lawler and will move

Mary met Dr. Lawler, who re- ceived a Doctor of Law degree from Harvard University, while he was completing course work toward his Ph. D . from the University of Pitts- burgh.
She has attended international conventions in St. Louis and Macki- nac. A t the latter conclave she was Exhibits Chairman.
Mary says she'll miss all the AOIIs in Region II, but shall look forward to getting to know those in Region VII.
BARBARA CLIFFORD KELLER reports rush is "predominantly suc- cessful" in Region I I I where there are 19 chapters.
The Universities of Florida and Georgia are on the deferred rush plan. Lambda Sigma at the latter school had the largest pledge classes on campus, both fall and spring.
Kappa Gamma has just cele- brated its 25th anniversary. Seven chapters already having turned in their rush reports filled their quotas. They are Delta Delta, Kappa Gamma, Gamma Sigma, Kappa Omicron, N u Beta, Omega Omicron and Omicron.

Those chapters in Region III that held a workshop prior to rush felt that the workshop helped make rush run smoothly and the whole pro- cedure more fun.
Omega Omicron came up with a bright idea. They wondered how other pledge classes would evaluate the AOII rush program! With such an evaluation they calculated they would prefect their rush to the point that everyone would want to go AOII!
Barbara says, "On the whole more and more of the chapters are leaning towards informal rush par- ties. We still impress rushees as a friendly, sincere and individualistic sorority that radiates love, under- standing and sisterhood. That was what the rushees were looking for."
She suggests roses for Kappa Gamma and Omicron Chapters whose members are helping soror- ities with small pledge classes fill their quotas. "This is certainly in the best interest of college Panhellenic groups and sororities, nationally," she declares.
A first for AOII is Alpha Beta Chapter at Florida Atlantic Univer- sity which is a junior senior univer- sity and poses some problems where rushing is concerned. Its members are only AOII collegiates for two years.
Barbara is pictured with her daughter, Connie Jane, now one and a half years old. She went to her first luncheon for AOII with the Day- tona Beach Alumnae Chapter when

Barbara was graduated from Florida Southern College with de- grees in elementary education and social studies i n secondary educa- tion. She did graduate work at the University of Miami.
She taught ten years, six in Miami and four in Satellite Beach, Fla., where she now makes her home. Her husband, a graduate of the University of Miami Engineering College, is an engineer for the missile program with the United States Navy.
Barbara served the Miami Alum- nae Chapter as secretary, vice presi- dent and president. She was founder of the Cocoa-Melbourne Alumnae Chapter of which she also served as president. From 1959 until 1965 she was associated with the Greater Miami Panhellenic Association, and now is quite active with the South Broward City Panhellenic Associa- tion. Currently she has been work- ing with the latter organization on plans for their Easter Village and helping in the organization of plans for Kappa Gamma's 25th anniver- sary celebration which is covered elsewhere in T O DRAGMA.
Prior to her post as Regional Rush Officer, Barbara served four years as Recommendation Chair- man for the State of Florida, as Collegiate Director for District V ., and as a director of Region III.

KAY SUTHERLIN cites Region IV's rush as moving along smoothly with greater concentration on infor- mal sessions with rushees; stimulat- ing discussion and question-answer sessions as opposed to formal par- ties of the past.
She says that many collegiates re- port the fun and fellowship of folk singing with AOII songs inter- spersed. "Such procedure allows collegiates and rushees alike the op- portunity to take part as a sister accompanies all on the guitar," she says.
"Most chapters report a balanc- ing of these informal times with skits and party themes so all is not changed."

"Ingenuity paid off for Sigma Iota W estern Illinois. A tent erected on the property where their new house will stand served as site for
their rush parties."
"Our campuses are so diverse, it's hard to campare them and indicate a format rush is taking. However, there is a growing awareness of Pan- hellenic spirit on several campuses bringing a refreshing spirit of work- ing together. Chapters are seeing the need to influence girls to sorority living first Within that concept, secret-keeping has given way to mutual problem-sharing with in- creasing help and understanding. Hopefully, this trend will continue and should be of value in strength- ening the overall Panhellenic picture and rush systems as a whole."
"Most reports indicate that rush workshops are being used to good advantage and more than before. Collegiates use the time to work on items needed for rush parties, but more important, to psych themselves up for the big days of rush."
"One chapter practiced saying to each other what they would answer if a rushee asked 'Why did you join AOII?' and were overwhelmed at the answers given. From the most out-spoken to the quietest o f the sisters, came ideas usually left un-
spoken and brought them closer as a group."
Kay was graduated from DePauw University where she was a member of Theta Chapter. She has been president of the Indianapolis Alum- nae Chapter and now serves as Theta Corporation president.
A social worker for the Indian- apolis Public Schools, she is chair- man of youth concerts for the Indiana State Symphony Society, be- longs to the Indianapolis Museum Alliance and the AAUW Board.
Her husband, a Phi Delta Theta from DePauw and a lawyer, is Indi- ana Securities Commissioner.
SHARON MARTIN finds the de- veloping of the Regional Rush Offi- cer's job, a great challenge—just as rush/sorority orientation is the greatest challenge to the Greek system today.
"This has been a most enjoyable and rewarding year for me in this office," she declares.
"I've seen a new colony estab- lished at Northwest Missouri State College in Maryville, Lambda Omega. Their installation will be April 17. This is an enthusiastic group of gals with much to give AOII.
"I have had great cooperation from the collegiate chapters in Re- gion V in putting together a rush portfolio for Lambda Omega. A special thanks to Phi Sigma, Theta Chi and Delta Pi for their fine con- tributions."
"Rush results were good in Re- gion V . A number of chapters filled their quota. We had some ex- cellent rush chairmen at the helm.
"Our major problem was appar- ent on some campuses in the region, as it is nation-wide. The campus atmosphere is changing and the Greek system is being challenged. There is a definite need for the local college Panhellenic organizations to strengthen and step up their pub- licizing of 'Go Greek', its values and what Greek life offers an individual.
"In rushing, AOIIs should speak AOII. As Delta Pi rush chairman stated, have a 'Sell AOII Cam- paign.' Whether at a rush party or walking between classes, try to keep a big AOII smile on your face and show your pride in the pin you wear. That's selling, too!"

LINDA LATTIN RUST finds rush- ing "terribly exciting" i n that so much change has evolved in such a short time.
Current revamping of rushing procedure and mechanics to meet challenges of the current scene are visionary and far-sighted, accord- ing to Linda.
"The spirit of sisterhood and love created by working so hard together, all for the same goal, remains the same, however," she declares.
"During Rush Week there's so much going on—so much change in such a short period of time: the enthusiasm, the tension, the plan- ning and preparation, the oppor- tunity to meet so many, many dif- ferent girls, the thrill of pledging a girl you want so badly, even the tears shed from the inevitable dis- appointments, the singing and laughing, the friends you make."
"Rushing procedures in Region VI are in a very stimulating process of change. Our old, structured, for- mal methods of rushing don't an- swer the needs of today's collegi- ates. On many campuses in Region VI, AOII is meeting this challenge with less structured, more relaxed and much more informal rush with rewarding success."
"New methods and procedures used on the University of Oregon campus last fall were so highly suc- cessful that nearly 90 percent of the girls registered for fall formal rush were pledged. That was a 30 per- cent increase over past years.
Linda, a graduate of Oregon State University with a major in clothing, textiles and related arts from the School of Home Econom- ics, lists AOII as her hobby.
"And I love every moment of it," she declares. Beginning work on the alumna level in 1966, she has served as pledge adviser f o r AP at Oregon State University, Collegiate Director of Old District
18, and presently is chapter and rush adviser for Alpha Sigma.
She with her husband, Theron, and their six-year-old daughter, Tracy, live in Eugene in a home they designed and built four years ago.
"Theron's work as an Urban Renewal official has meant moves quite often for us in the past few years, so four years in one place is really a record," says Linda. "But no matter where we move in the

She's a member and past president of the Louisiana Art and Artists Guild, a delegate and past president of the Baton Rouge City Panhellenic Council and trains and shows a pet afghan hound named Chalamar in connec- tion with activities of the Louisiana Capital City Obedience Club.
SALLIE IVERSON DITTO cites the fact that the tremendous i n - crease in the population in Cali- fornia has greatly affected the col- lege and university campuses.
"State supported junior colleges, open to all, have increased in qual- ity and quantity, to provide educa- tion for the overwhelming number of college age students," she explains.
"The master plan in California education provides for freshmen and sophomores to attend junior col- leges, and not state colleges and universities where the Greek sys- tems are established. The decrease in freshman and sophomore stu- dents has greatly affected the num- ber of students going through sor- ority and fraternity rush."
"Panhellenic organizations i n Southern and Northern California have availed themselves of Opera- tion Greek Seminars. A n entirely new approach to the fraternity sys- tem is imperative in order to meet the new campus situations. Sorority members throughout the state are working now to make the necessary changes," says Sallie.
Both Sallie and her husband, Jerry, are graduates of the Univer- sity of Minnesota. She received a B.S. in medical technology. He is director of sales for Barnes-Hind Pharmaceuticals.

future, I know through AOII."

JUDITH POLIVKA BETTS, known as Judi to a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, believes that busy people get things done.
In accepting the job of Regional Rush Officer, she brings a wealth of experience and knowledge gained in working with AOIIs on two large campuses, L.S.U. and Indiana University.
"In the past 12 years, I have been the adviser to Alpha Omicron at L.S.U. during two periods of sev- eral years each," she explains. "First was approximately 1961-64 when AO did not have a sorority house and had only a room in the Panhellenic Building. W e went through the thinking and planning stages until an AOII house did be- come a reality on the L.S.U. campus.
"What a difference this made in rush. It increased the sense of be- longing and gave the girls more to call their own and more to want to share with their future sisters.
"This past fall, rush was the best I have seen for them.
"Alpha Omicron realized, too, this year, that after formal rush was over they must continue to rush their new pledges and not just sit back and relax."
Judi and her twin sister, Janet Polivka, now Mrs. Charles Curtis of Berwyn, Pennsylvania, grew up in LaGrange, Illinois, and pledged AOII at Indiana University.
Judi's husband, T o m , also is a graduate of Indiana .University where he was a member of Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity. He is manager of Cargo Carriers, Incor- porated, southern region, and also has his own diving company. Judi and Tom share a common hobby, raising tropical plants, which they pursue even in the winter as they have a small greenhouse in their backyard.
Judi, after graduating from Indi- ana University in 1958, received an M.A. degree in Education from L.S.U. in 1962. She is an art teacher

Attention, collegiates and alumnae!
Rush is the lifeline of our fraternity. Collegiates, keep the line taut and functionable by plan- ning and presenting successful, year-round rush programs.
Alumnae, keep that line vital and clear by assisting with membership selection. According to International Rushing Chairman, Peggy Kramer Crawford, voluntary recommendations are more important than ever before. Do you know a girl who is going to a college or university where there's an AOII chapter?
Please, send a Rush Information Form. And do it now! Time is of the essence. Write the nice things you know about her and send them off to representatives of the AOII chapter at the college she'll attend.
If a chapter asks for information on a prospective rushee, respond at once. But don't feel it's necessary to be asked for such a request. If you don't know her personally, try to find an alumna who does. Failing there, promptly inform the chapter that you can't help so they can seek informa- tion elsewhere. Send recommendation on the form below.
Each year many potential AOII sisters are lost in the masses of rush because no one took the ef- fort to call attention to them. While AOII does not operate on a recommendation system, it does appreciate knowing about prospective sisters. Rushing is everyone's responsibility.Please do your share.
Included in this section are the names and addresses of all of AOII's collegiate chapters, their presidents and rush chairmen and their summer address, these chapters' alumnae advisers and dates by which rush information is needed.

A Very Special Message To Rushees From
ALPHA OMICRON PI International Fraternity
i •MM

Founded 1897 Barnard College, Columbia University

May we extend our congratulations and best wishes and welcome you as you embark on one of the most important eras of your life.
Your college days will be a time when your dreams and aspirations will start to take shape. You will begin to assume your full maturity and seriously pursue an education in preparation for the future. The choice of the college or university where you could best obtain this education, of course, was a major decision in your life. Selection of a sorority is of major importance, too. Especially does this hold true of Alpha Omicron Pi.
Our Fraternity is a real, living experience in friendship and sisterhood which eliminates the boundaries of age. AOII is a lifetime involvement. Felicitations as you face the opportunities and challenges of the future.
Dragma of ALPHA OMICRON PI—SUMMER of 1971 361

AOII is a well-organized, intelligently governed, financially sound, international society. The Executive Committee is responsible for the business of the fraternity between conventions.
Alpha Omicron Pi was built on friendship by founders courageously independent in their thinking, dis- criminating in their choice of objec- tives, logical in developing their ideas, and energetic in making them work.
This same wisdom and foresight established a fraternity which has endured for many decades and grown and extended throughout the continent.
These Qualities Make AOII

Membership in AOII means close association with other young ladies of the highest ideals. With the exception of the family circle, no other relationship in your life can be as close, as inspirational or as challenging as the opportunity to live with young women in a fraternity circle. In AOII, membership is serious and enduring. It is for life.
362 To Dragma of ALPHA OMICRON PI—SUMMER of 1971

A RewardingWayofLife
AOII rites end services ere beautiful and dignified. As the sorority's origin is pure Greek and shields and crests were of medieval origin, no crest or shield was adopted. The philosophy of the founders is incorporated in sorority rites.
AOII offers wholesome, enjoyable social life both during your college days and afterwards, too. Hun- dreds of alumnae chapters are located throughout the United States and Canada and are com- posed of thousands of AOIIs work- ing to carry the ideals of our fraternity into their community, home, civic and social life.
AOII is facilities—chapter houses, apart- ments, suites and rooms. Seen, above and at the right, are two AOII chapter houses, Upsilon at the University of W ashington and Pi Kappa at the University of Texas.

Janice Young, To DRAGMA re- porter from AOII's new colony, Lambda Omega at Northwest Mis- souri State College, Maryville, re- ports gala plans were underway for the installation of that group Friday and Saturday, April 17 and 18.
Fern Robinson Kallevang, Inter- national President, and top execu- tives of Region V were slated to be on hand. In preparation for the in- stallation weekend. Traveling Sec- retary Cindy Howland stayed with the group all of the previous week.
Representatives of Delta Pi chap- ter were planning to go to Maryville for the event as well as members of other collegiate chapters.
Six pledges who had completed their fraternity education were to be initiated with the chapter.
As Lambda Omega's chapter room has not been completed, the group has been meeting in one of the three dormitory rooms which are to be converted.
Lambda Omega has already suc- cessfully organized and carried out one fund-raising project which net- ted them approximately $70. They have had two of their officers run- ning for offices of the student body and had three candidates in the Miss Maryville Pageant.

In the Spotlight
A Trio of AOIIs Six-Member Executive Committee
Eleanore Dietrich MacCurdy [Mrs. Robert D.IA) Administrative Vice President
During this biennium which draws to a close at International Convention in June, Eleanore has acceptedAOII as her major activity. She points out that her family has realized this committment, and has been most supportive. "Otherwise the conflict would have been de- structive," she says.
Willing to by-pass long vacations during this interim, Eleanore has spent a minimum of 30 hours per week at the typewriter and on the telephone. She has maintained an organized, efficient filing system and has an in-depth knowledge of col- legiate chapters, campuses and the inter-relationships between alumnae and collegiates.
She has directed and delegated responsibilities to regional officers and polished up her understanding of group dynamics as a background for training AOII's Traveling Sec- retaries.
" 'Why AOII?' is the question pledges, collegiates and alumnae have been asking for years," de- clares Eleanore. "I have found many answers from California to New England, from Louisiana to Minne- sota."
"Living and sharing our ideas and ideals since my initiation as hon- orary member into Iota Alpha Chapter in 1959 has been one of the most wonderful experiences of my life," she explains.
"The frustrations and fulfillment of colonizing at Utah State Univer- sity; the challenge of national super- vision in Louisiana; the broad scope of responsibility as a Collegiate Director for chapters in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi, added hap- piness, and at times, heartache. From 1962-67, I served the Shreve- port Panhellenic as our AOII dele- gate, and in 1965, helped with the reactivation of our Alumnae Chap- ter i n Shreveport."
"Why AOII? It has become a way of life for me and thousands of sisters."
Eleanore attended the University of Chicago where she majored in English. Prior to graduation, she
(Continued on page
As broadly defined in the AOII by-laws, the duties of the Adminis- trative Vice President shall be: to serve as a member of the Executive Committee; to train and supervise the work of the Traveling Secre- taries and the Graduate Counsel- ors, to coordinate the affairs of the collegiates and alumnae chapters and keep the Executive Committee informed of the affairs of these chap- ters; to authorize the election of associate members; to supervise the Rush Chairman; to serve as admin-
istrator and coordinator of regional meetings; to preside over the A d - ministrative Committee, composed of all Regional Vice Presidents, and to approve petitions for alumnae chapters.
After almost two years of experi- ence in this post, Eleanore Mac- Curdy has discovered that the A d - ministrative Vice President's office requires absolutely no procrastina- tion, plus large quantities of dedica- tion, administration and communi- cation.

Norma Berry, as Alpha Omicron Pi's International Secretary-Treas- urer, is extremely interested in col- legiates' motivation, thinking and ideals. She wants to be carried along with them, and hold out a guiding hand only if they want it.
Norma states that she's been in- terested in children all of her life. Since both of her daughters ran the gamut of Girl Scout activities, she's been a Cub Scout Leader and Girl Scout Leader on two different oc- casions.
She's been most active in the Har- riet Stimson Guild of the Children's Orthopedic Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle, W ashington, where she makes her home. She's served as guild president and ways and means chairman for 10 years. In the latter capacity she points out that the or- ganization never averaged less than $1500 or $2000 on fund-raising projects.
"I've seen so many miracles wrought in the Children's Hospital, that I can't help but believe fervently in such a worthwhile cause that gives 60 percent free care."
A native of Pekin, Illinois, and a graduate of Northwestern University where she was a member of Rho Chapter, Norma says she was led gradually into AOII work by being asked to serve as chairman of the advisory committee of Upsilon Chapter.
"As it always happens, when you start to do something and become interested in it, one thing leads to another. I was asked to be Collegiate Director, a post in which I served five years prior to being elected to International Secretary-Treasurer."
Norma has belonged to alumnae chapters in Peoria, Illinois, Milwau- kee, Wisconsin, and-Seattle.
Of the Executive Committee, Norma says, "I think this group has worked especially hard this year due to the new Internal Revenue rulings, and the implementing the new regional setup. Also with so many campuses anti-Greek, we have been concentrating on giving help to chap- ters."
"Seems as though this has been a period of great advancement. I especially like the regional organiza- tion, but regret that there is not a time to do everything."
"I really wanted to establish strong guidelines for all officers. I firmly believe in the Traveling Sec- retary program. Perhaps my prob- lem has been in putting a housewife to the typewriter, a necessity none- theless. In what other wav are we to communicate?"
Norma Nierstheimer Berry (Mrs. Willard D. P) Secretary-Treasurer
"I am proud today that our found- ers were so independent in their thinking. They laid the foundation for an organization that has with- stood the test of time. I believe that women, and especially sorority women, have not yet reached their potential. There is so much more we could all do to promote a happy and peaceful world."
"Whenever I hear a collegiate say that she cannot understand why we should be a national organization, I think of the times that I moved to a strange city, and the warm way in which the alumnae organization wel- comed me. I think of the people with whom I have worked all through my AOII life—collegiates, alumnae, old, young, and in be- tween, who have offered part of themselves."
"I could never have become i n - volved with these wonderful people if we had not been an international organization.
"The challenge, the inspiration and opportunity to work with all AOIIs is a marvelous and unique experience."
Norma's husband, Willard D . Berry, now retired, has been in the shoe business, both wholesale and retail, all of his life. The Berrys' oldest daughter is Barbara, who is married, has two little boys and lives in Eugene, Oregon. A son, Bill Denny, is a graduate of the Univer- sity of Oregon, served two years in the Army, including one year in Vietnam. He was released from ac- tive duty with the rank of first lieu- tenant. Their younger daughter, Susan, was graduated last June from the University of W ashington and married John Senner, who also grad- uated. They were married the same week end as AOII's Region VI Con- vention so Norma says she "had to step lively to do both events in the same week end."

Let's Meet
Adele Kuflewsli Hinton (Mrs. Frederick W .P) NPC Delegate
on what Fraternity is and being a Greek means, as well as the knowl- edge of what makes AOII special.
"In my visits to campuses, I find the concern of the Panhellenic much the same—the implementation var- ies because of a local situation and because a campus is never static. In my post, I must be entirely aware of the changing campus as well as changes in other NPC groups."
Born and raised in Chicago, Adele obtained a B.S. degree in personnel and accounting at Northwestern University where she was a member of Rho Chapter.
Following graduation she did per- sonnel work with the government, set up a personnel department for a manufacturing plant, and was em- ployment manager for a retail es- tablishment.
Her husband, Frederick W . Hin- ton, Phi Gamma Delta, is treasurer of Aladdin Industries and currently is serving a three-month stint as one of 40 executives on Tennessee's Governor's Study of Cost Control. A graduate of the University of Maine, he received his master Mas- ter's degree from M.I.T. He's a na- tive of Maine.
The Hinton's daughter Alice, 17, is a junior at Harpeth Hall.
"I am never bored with boards," she says. " A t one time I actively served on nine boards while serving as chairman of the building commit- tee for Nu Omicron Chapter."
For three years after finishing college, Adele was adviser to Rho, and she worked in some phase of this capacity for AOII ever since. She's been second national vice president, convention chairman three times, International Regional Meetings Chairman, International Public Relations Chairman and Membership Chairman. She has been president of the Nashville Alumnae Chapter, president of the Corporation Board of Nu Omicron, having just finished a second term, co-chairman of the N u Omicron's Golden Gala and chairman of its building committee. She was col- legiate director in old District Seven.
She was co-founder and presi- dent of the Nashville City Panhel- lenic; president of the Nashville Symphony Guild and now serves on its board and Association Board; is a member of the Middle Tennessee Heart Association Executive Com- mittee; is vice president of the League of Women Voters; president of the W omen of First Presbyterian Church; as a member of Harpeth Hall's Auxiliary Board is serving as co-chairman of their current fund- raising project.
It is especially timely that one of the three members of the Interna- tional Executive Committee, being featured in the summer rush issue, be Adele Hinton.
As National Panhellenic Confer- ence delegate and a member of the Executive Committee, she not only is required to attend regular sessions of the latter, but also has been on hand for two AOII regional meet- ings, the NPC meeting and the cam- pus and housing meetings held dur- ing the annual dean's meeting.
As a member of the College Pan- hellenic Committee for NPC, she serves as Area Adviser for Tennes- see and Kentucky which has 23 campuses with NPC groups.
In the last biennium at the invi- tation of the deans or of the college Panhellenics she has visited 12 of the campuses and conducted work- shops and training sessions.
She also instituted an area or re- To Dragma of A L P H A O M I C R O N
gional workshop in November which was attended by 150 Panhellenic Council members representing 11 campuses.
"I am most interested," says Adele, "in the strengthening of the position of the each chapter's Pan- hellenic delegate and the awareness of the chapters that Panhellenic is not 'they' but 'us' and that we are all an important action of that Pan- hellenic. I try to assist and answer the queries of chapters with Pan- hellenic concern and work with and through other national NPC dele- gates to bring about as much con- structive action as possible."
"I strongly support simplified rush and rush rules and working agreements within Panhellenic which do not hamper, but strengthen."
Adele declares that more person- to-person rush is the growing thing, and emphasizes that chapters and individuals must be well informed

Michigan's 50th Is Gala, Golden Affair
A trio of charter members of Omicron Pi Chapter at the University of Michigan pause in the festivities at the joint 50th anniversary celebration of their chapter and the Detroit Alumnae Chapter held in February on the University of Michigan's Dearborn Campus. They are left to right, Marion Tanner Rylander, Marjorie Kerr Lanning and Elizabeth Gratton Youngjohn.
Presiding over the festivities which were staged by the Dearborn Alumnae Chapter with the assistance of the Metropolitan Detroit Council was Mary Lou LalcofF MacMillan NO, Vice President, Region II. Seated at the right is Peggy Shefferly P, chairman of the Founders' Day Dinner and Golden Anniversary celebration.
Green-eyed, golden-haired Helen Larkin lies in a semi-conscious condition at a nursing home in Memphis, Tenn.
Until Nov. 21 when she received a severe brain injury in an auto- mobile accident, she was a sopho- more at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and a member of A l - pha Omicron Pi Sorority's Omicron Chapter there.
In the words of The Memphis Commercial Appeal's reporter, Shir- ley Downing, "the condition of Helen, one of six children of Mrs. Gloria Larkin, a widow, has tugged gently at purse strings and heavily at hearts across the whole State of T ennessee."
In Knoxville what started as a simple gesture on the part of Helen's sorority sisters to say, "We're sorry," and help Mrs. Larkin with some of the crushing medical ex- penses snowballed into an all- campus, Panhellenic-oriented fund- raismg affair.
Originally AOIIs decided to sponsor a dollar-a-plate, spaghetti supper to aid Helen's mother i n meeting hospital costs. They en- listed the help of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity, and the campaign began to spread like wild fire all over the campus.
Doug Haynes, an ATO from Gal- latin, Tenn., said, "We went around to all the fraternities and sororities. Most of the Greeks knew her and weren't hesitant about offering help."
Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Sigma Chi Fraternities volunteered their houses for the dinner and their
It was an auspicious occasion, flooded with golden memories, Feb. 11, when Omicron Pi Chapter at the University of Michigan and the Detroit Alumnae Chapter combined forces in a joint celebration of their 50th anniversaries at their AOII
Founders' Day dinner.
Members of the Dearborn Alum-
nae Chapter, assisted by the Met- ropolitan Detroit Council, were hostesses at the happy, festive oc- casion.
Even the weatherman cooperated for the gala celebration.
Roses, roses and more roses were used to decorate the dining room at the Fairlane Conference Center of the Dearborn Campus, University of Michigan.
Dearborn president, Peggy Shef- ferly (Mrs. Richard P. P) opened the program with greeting to all alumnae, 17 Omicron Pi collegiates from Ann Arbor, 10 Beta Pi mem- bers from Ypsilanti and Traveling Secretary Deb Mathis.
Region I I Vice President, Mary Louise McMillan (Mrs. Thomas S.
NO), invited three Omicron Pi char- ter members, Marjorie Kerr Lan- ning, Elizabeth Gratton Y oungjohn and Marion Tanner Rylander, and the Detroit Alumnae president, Barbara Jean Zolnierczak Bn, to light the Founders' Day candles as she read a Founders' Day message. She extended greetings to the two chapters from the Executive Com- mittee and presented Omicron Pi Chapter president, Betsy Harris, with their gift, a gold candy dish.
Oakland County president, San- dra Kubbitz, announced they had sent a tribute of $50 per chapter to the Diamond Jubilee Foundation.
Charter members were presented with 50 year pins by Jean Hawley (Mrs. Martin 0) , Regional Director, who gave the following persons rec- ognition awards: Millie Hutcherson, Nell Peters, Irene Potter (Omicron Pi housemother since 1957 and hon- orary member since 1966), Mary Lou Sloss, Vivian Kreasky of Psi for service to Omicron Pi, Marjorie Keller, Judy Kruger and Phyllis

With Jerry Walsh of New York City, director of special sevices for the Arthritis Foundation, and Max Buben of Cleveland, Field Service Director, Arthritis Foundation, pres- ent, the emphasis was on AOIFs international philanthropic project, the Arthritis Foundation, at Indiana State Day Saturday, March 13.
Scene of the one-day session was Ball State University in Muncie with Kappa Kappa and the Muncie Alumnae Chapters playing hostesses.
Representatives from seven Indi- ana collegiate chapters and a good representation of alumnae of the area arrived by car and bus loads and registered at the Student Center. Following a coffee hour, participants could attend round tables and panel discussions on philanthropy, rush and Panhellenic, pledging and cur- rent campus thought and images.
Walsh and Buben conducted a most informative and provocative session on arthritis and how AOII can help in the battle against it.
Fund-raising is important, they
agreed, but encouraged a more per- sonal approach including patient transportation, dissemination of ac- curate information at fairs, home shows and other places where large groups congregate.
Traveling Secretary Dee Gardner directed thinking i n the pledge forum.
A battery of experts on AOII, in- cluding Marie Hughes, Executive Director of Central Office, Nell Smith, financial secretary, and Re- gion I V officers, V ice President Gwen Lee, Ruth Brown, finance, Pat Mottweiler, extension, Kay Su- therline, rush, and Anne Rinne and Ann Gilchrist, Regional Directors, answered questions directed at them in the discussion of campus thoughts and images after some brief, intro- ductory remarks by collegiate presi- dents.

Miss Ball State, Sandy Carson KK, led the singing of grace after Mary Lou Huber (Mrs. William J.) wel- comed the group.
In the absence of International President, Fern Robinson Kallevang, Marie Hughes introduced dignitar- ies present who included: Miss Mar- tha Wickham, Ball State Associate Dean.

Kappa Gamma Celebrates 25 Years at Silver Tea
Kathleen O'Toole, Kappa Gamma president, and Debi Du Perow admire the handsome silver service given the chapter by AOII's Florida alumnae chapters in observance of this collegiate chapter's silveranniversary.
It was a time of dewy-eyed recol- lections for alumnae of Kappa Gamma Chapter, Florida Southern College, Saturday, March 6, when this group celebrated its 25th anni- versary with a silver tea held at the chapter house in Lakeland.
Kappa Gamma officially was in- stalled May 5, 1946.
Collegiates were honored and touched by the large number of alumnae and other guests, including the Dean of W omen of Florida Southern College who attended the affair.
Focal point of the serving table was a gigantic birthday cake and a silver punch bowl encircled with red roses and greenery.

U.T. President Edward Boling and Chancellor Charles W eaver were among the guests. Governor Winfield Dunn, unable to attend, sent a donation. More than 2,500 tickets were sold.
Helen's mother, Mrs. Larkin, in a note to AOH's To DRAGMA'S edi- tor, said, "My Helen loved her chapter at U.T. It was that associ- ation and sisterhood that helped make her college life so happy."
Rachel Moehle (Mrs. Charles, TO,) Region I I I Director, presented Kappa Gamma with a handsome silver tray from the Executive Com- mittee.
Barbara Keller (Mrs. Bill, KX), Region I I I Rush Officer, gave the chapter a silver tea service as a gift from alumnae chapters throughout the state, and announced that al- most 500 dollars had been donated by alumnae of the chapter itself towards the purchase of a piano which will be delivered in the fall.
Barbara was presented with a silver vase by Kappa Gamma in ap- preciation of her organizing the tea observance.

"Those boys and girls worked so hard. Their efforts should be pub- licized particularly in hopes that those who 'put down' the Greeks, may be made aware of their efforts."
Since Helen's condition remains the same, Mrs. Larkin points out of what real material aid the fund- raising efforts have been to her family.

Alumnae from all over Florida gathered for the event and there were representatives from as far as Virginia and Massachusetts, too.
One of Kappa Gamma's original members, Mary Hussey, was present as well as Varian Rutledge, Mrs. Stan Cushman, Miss Southern of 1965, and Donna Thompson, who came all the way from the nation's capital.
Above are two of Kappa Gamma's happy alumnae on hand for the Silver Anniversary Tea.

Several charter members of the alumnae group were present as honor guests, and also collegiates and alumnae from Upsilon Alpha—
