opportunities, raising of social standards,
and sponsoring forums on stimulating
topics. Eleanor M. Dilworth, KA6 con-
vention manager, spoke on scholarship
standards, emphasizing the fact that
scholarship is one point on which all
Greeks agree.

Edna Sommerfeld, KA national secre-
tary, talked upon Panhellenic's respon-
sibility for the social program, citing
that excerpt from the Panhellenic Creed
pertaining to the maintenance of fine
social standards. Alice Howard, Mary-
land assistant dean, discussed the place
of a health plan in the Panhellenic pro-
gram. She recommended that the health
records of the girls be studied to see
if they are physically equipped to do
the work for which they are preparing.

Among the recommendations passed

In addition, the conference passed a
resolution favoring limitation of mem-

Panhellenic as recommended by N P C in
193S and 1937.

Mrs. James McNaboe, K K r vice pres-
ident and alumnx work chairman, spoke
on "Why Alumnae" and led an interest-
ing discussion in which it was brought
out that alumna; must be informed, and
in constant touch with the fraternity, its
development and purposes.

Mrs. C. M. Jansky, Jr., ATA vice
president in charge of alumnae work,
spoke on the topic "Why City Panhel-
lenics." Mrs. Jansky stated that the col-
lege fraternity chapter upholds for its
purpose the achievements of a breadth,
balance and spiritual enrichment in un-
dergraduate education which will enable
its members to face the exigencies of
life wisely and well. The City Pan-
hellenic sees to it that those objectives
are never cheapened or spoken lightly
of, and are applied to the fraternity
movement as a whole.

Mrs. Lindsay spoke to the City Pan-
hellenics group on the promotion of co-
operation; it is, she said, a state of mind
and can be made tangible when it trans-
lates itself into action. As alumna: we
have a tendency to carry over impres-
sions of old prejudices. We must face
the fact that unless we make ourselves
enlightened alumna? we can be a drag
on progress. One of the greatest func-
tions of the City Panhellenic is to make
