tablishment of the Alpha chapter at
Michigan took place in 1918. This
organization was made to form a
strong bond among women in the de-
partment of oratory of the various
universities, to form a strong link be-'
tween the University and former stu-1I
dents, and to promote social and in-
tellectual enterprises among members
and to cultivate a closer bond of
friendship. Miss Amy Loomis, '22,
director of the Junior girls' play,
"Castles in Spain" was made an honor-
ary menber last month and Miss
Jessie Bonstelle of the Bonstelle com-'
pany, became a member this month.
The organization publishes a semi-
annual magazine, the "Mask" in which'
the work of other chapters is setl
forth. The Alpha chapter at Michiganj
is only honorary, although other,
chapters in the state are active also.
The bi-ennial convention was held atr
Michigan last year and this year will
be held at the Beta chapter of Illi-
