members can become masters at the art of Membership

The third section of pieces in the rush success puzzle is
PREPARATION FOR RUSH PARTIES. Working out the

the school year. It's perfecting every costume, each nametag,
all song and dance routines, and every decoration. Artists,
designers, and workers join together every party detail puz-

puzzle pieces, the all important rushing techniques, C O N -
VERSATIONAL SKILLS, takes our attention.

CONVERSATIONAL SKILLS are puzzle pieces which
serve AOIIs throughout life. These are the gracious hostess-
ing, conversation perfecting pieces which fit all of the every
day needs as well as the rushing needs of all collegians and
alumnae. Conversational skills are worth learning well. They
are the pieces of which success in life is made. The many
pieces of the rush success puzzle, framed by POSITIVE
ATTITUDES and ENTHUSIASM for chapter building, make
up a puzzle that all chapters can 'work.' Every member can
enjoy and learn as she puts her pieces into their strategic
places to complete her personal AOII rush picture puzzle.
And when all of the section comes together, what a picture it
is: AOII and each of us at her best!

The chapter's new president Shir-

ities planned to explain Alpha Omi-

women picked to "rush."

The first function was a cookie ex-
change. The alumnae rushees met
chapter members and learned about
the chapter, its goals and its relation
to the collegians at various chapters
across the region as well as to the A l -
pha Gamma chapter at WSU.

Ten days later the rushees were in-
vited to the Senior Party sponsored
by the Pullman chapter for Alpha
Gamma members graduating in June.
The seniors were able to tell the pro-
spective alumnae about sorority life
at WSU and did an excellent job of
making the seven feel welcome to the
family, Shirley said.

The final event was a dinner at the
Alpha Gamma chapter house f o l -
lowed by a sneak preview of fall rush
entertainment. Later the alumnae
and collegians shared a candle cere-
mony with the rushees to give them
formal invitations to membership.

Seven returned the RSVP saying
they would like to become associate
members of Alpha Omicron Pi!!

"We were very pleased with the
three activities," Shirley added. "The
alumnae were able to strengthen their
commitment for the fraternity by
discussing AOII with prospective
alumnae."

Chapter members, too, enjoyed
sharing their search for associate
