Into the realms of knowledge &

The steps of learning to tread; f
Four years of this climbing for 'wisdom m
'Til subjects I knew every part,
And when I had come to the finish,
I wished I were back at the start.

But I say that if dust-covered volumes
Can give such a joy as this,
Remember the zvorld's full of zvonders
That zvill add much more to your bliss;
For there's always a chance for a worker
A better job to do—
A highway that knozvs no limits,
And that chance is there for you.

Rho's Twenty-fifth Birthday



What do I, Merva Dolson Hcnnings, think of Rho's twenty-fifth
reunion? Well, simply that only death or other dire disaster could
keep me from it! 1 am literally counting each of the weeks as it

this or that episode of our growth. Those of us who live in
F.vanston, and have thus been able to keep somewhat in touch with
local affairs, hai/S a chapter we're proud to have you meet, and
we're just as anx ous that they in turn shall meet you, and know

Active chapters $27.50
Alumna: chapters _ 22.50
The active chapters have sent almost twice as many boxes this year as they did
last year. Just think how many children were made happy at Christmas time by your
thoughtfulncss in sending gifts. Keep up the good work!

The alumna? chapters have more than tripled the boxes of clothing sent last year.
Haven't you people had a good time collecting and mending the clothing? Has not
this national work made a closer bond among the members, in working for a com-
mon cause? When you stop to think of the great number of people wbo have been
warm and comfortable in the clothing you have contributed, you will feel amply
repaid for the time and energy you gave. This is truly a great work.

Owr newest group of contributors this year is the "alumna? at large." We who be-
long to organized chapters have the inspiration of working together. And how that
does spur us on to greater deeds. Special recognition should be given to these small
unorganized groups who are doing their share so well. Here is a big thank-you to
the "alumna? at large."

If the "Clothesline Committee" has not given you credit for the boxes or the
money you have sent, please understand that it is not intentional. It would he well
to write a note to the chairman though, and she will rectify the records.

Again our deepest thanks to everyone.

Fraternally yours.
Vera Uieliel. Chairman
Maude Nolte
Roberta Wood
Janet Weissmiller
Helen Erskine

P. S.

Over the back fences of all America let me introduce you to the "Clothesline
Committee" one by one. Each member is very different from the other one, but all
of them have one common characteristic—they forget themselves in the interest of
Alpha Omicron Pi. Nowhere can more earnest and devoted members be found.

First, there is Maude Bacon Nolte, lota—Ex '09. Not only is she a charter
member of her active chapter, but she is also a "first lady" in the Chicago Alumna?
Chapter as well as the Chicago South Shore Alumna? Chapter. Although Maude is a
very busy person caring for her house, her garden, her husband, a very interesting
daughter and son, she always finds time for AOU. Many times Iota has been
made happy by donations from Maude, and her alumna? chapter can count on her

Next comes Roberta Wood, Phi—'19. Whenever anyone is needed to volunteer
for a particularly hard task, Roberta is right there. Only her faithful and untiring
service as secretary to her alumna? chapter has made possible many of the projects
that have been carried out. When Roberta is not helping AOn, she teaches pho-
nography at the Pullman Free School of Manual Training. Here, besides instruct-
ing high school students, she sponsors the Girls' Club, which is not only a social but
a philanthropic organization as well. Busy and happy is Roberta all the time.

The third member of the group is Janet Ramcy Weissmiller, Zeta—'12. Janet
not only manages a household and looks after her husband and son, but she teaches
high school in Chicago as well. And still Janet has time and energy left to be a


splendid president of an alumna? chapter and • v
to do a lot of charity work besides. Even

Helen work far beyond her strength to do
more than her part. s
With helpers such as these it is a joy to be T
chairman of a committee.

P. S. No. 2. The chairman didn't say a
word about herself so Helen Wolfe Erskine
sent this about her:

Were you to be on a committee with Vera
Kiebel, you would find her an ardent enthusiast
and a very hard worker. She has served AOIT
ever since she was pledged and especially
since her graduation from Northwestern Uni-
versity in 1913. She was the first graduate
to be initiated into the Chicago Alumna?, she
aided in the colonization at the University of
Wisconsin to establish H chapter, she formed
the Chicago South Shore Alumna- and, as its
president for several years, developed it, she
has been district study plan officer and is now
a member of the National Work Committee.
Because of her efforts, you are now sending
clothes, toys, and dolls to Kentucky.

Vera teaches English at the Lindblom High
School in Chicago. Her students find her an
excellent, inspiring teacher and a good friend.

A more loyal and conscientious worker in
AOII cannot be found.

stall of the local county unit of the Federal
Emergency Relief Administration. I should
explain that this staff is doing something that
pusses for social work among some fifteen
hundred families, the major part of the popu-

everything considered, that staff is beginning

ago we finally got permission, after I hail
harped on the subject for about eighteen
months, to make radical change in the per-
sonnel of that staff, placing on it people chosen
on the basis of qualifications for the job,
rather than destitution. This has resulted in
our getting a staff of fifteen alert, active young
people, several of whom have had some col-
lege work, two of whom have their Bachelor's
degrees and, believe it or not, two of whom
have had a little social-work training. You
