Transcript FRIENDS LAST FOREVER PLEDGE TRAINER Anne Sharpe plans pledge activities for the next semester while pledges Cathy Williams, Carol Akkerman and Marguerite Frantz add their suggestions. Alpha Chi Omega, founded in 1885 at DePauw University, is a social club bringing its members friendships that will become life long. At the same time it helps them grow as useful members of society. Belonging to the sorority is an experience in self-governing group living. Giving its members guidance in adjusting to college life is part of the group's purpose. Providing AChiO's an opportunity to develop leadership qualities, the sorority also encourages its members to develop their individual talents. Stressing the importance of intellectual advancements, Alpha Chi Omega guides its members in cultural development. It advocates service to the university and also to the community through various projects. Among the sorority's activities are Song- fest, Cougar Christmasland, Derby Day, Panhellenic Workshop and a Founder's Day Banquet. AChiO wins second place in Homecoming float competition and takes first place in the Homecoming banner contest. Socially speaking, the top event is the Alpha Chi Allegro, which is held this year at the Houston Club. Outstanding members of Alpha Chi Omega are Lynda Moore, Vanity Fair Beauty, Miss Printing Week, Homecoming Queen finalist and Outstanding Student; Edwene Gaines, Cougar editor and Outstanding Student and Antha Adkins, Favorite. Also Anne Sharpe, junior class vice-president, sweetheart of Tau Kappa Epsilon and secretary of Red Masque Players; Carol Akkerman, sophomore class representative and Vanity Fair Beauty and Joyce Simpson, Vanity Fair Favorite. Other winning honors are Nancy Coff- man, Panhellenic vice-president and Golf Queen; Cathy Williams, freshman class vice-president and Sabra Hall, Houston Press Club scholarship winner. DUTIES OF AChiO PLEDGES include keeping the sorority's trophies clean. Aiding in the effort with their dustcloths are Diane Craig, Beverly Ward and Judy Hall. 216
