In Chapter I I , entitled "Beginning

circumstances surrounding the begin-

Newcomb Memorial College, as it was
then called.

Pi Chapter began its life on Sept. 8,
1898.

Only one decade later, the president
of Newcomb thanked the representa-
tive of A O H for having installed Pi
Chapter and said it had set an ex-
ample of honor to all.

What an illustrious role Pi Chapter
has played in the A O I I story!

This Fall, when the time approached
for this distinguished chapter to ob-
serve its 75th anniversary, interna-
tional and regional executives of A O I I
agreed that a glittering anniversary
celebration most decidedly was in
order.

Sunday, Nov. 11, 1973, during Tu-
lane University's Homecoming week-
end was chosen as the date and the
Royal Orleans Hotel was the site f o r
a festive anniversary luncheon and
special presentation.

Gayle Marschall Gosgrove I I was
chairman of the celebration, and Col-
leen Sullivan Ingraffia I I , co-chairman.
International President Adele K. H i n -

dent Janie L. Callaway O, headed the

for the event.

Arthritis A f f e c t s 1 In 4 Families She Gave 200 Hours

Arthritis affects one in every four families, including AOII LI
families. My father's arthritis began in the feet. Gradually it
worked up to other joints. Ann Horton lO a teacher in North Little Rock Ark., was recog-

the arthritis went into remission. He stopped driving, but
started working again.

In 1965 he developed an ulcer and began to be more
restricted in his movements.

In 1972 a synovectomy was performed on each knee. He
is very weak and must use a walker; and, when the distance
is as great as a block, a wheelchair.

Last year he had a serious case of influenza. Arthritis in-
creased; and in May 1973, he went to the hospital for two
weeks for tests and therapy.

In June my father retired from Wright Patterson Air
Force Base after 32 years as an electronics engineer, but he
prefers working halftime to sitting at home.

These facts do not tell of all the inconvenient things for
him such as dressing and combing his hair. Mom has to help.
Nor does it tell of the discomforts of the disease or the fact
that my parents cannot take trips and enjoy their retirement.

Arthritis takes a lot of fun out of life. But my father is
lucky because he has a sit-down job, and he has my mom.
Think about all those arthritics who live alone and cannot
work.
