815 Women Attend Annual Banquet
Of Panhellenic In League Ballroom

1i

Miss Osborne, Dean Lloyd
Speak, Alpha Delta Pi
Wins Scholarship Award
More than 815 sorority women
heard Elizabeth MacDonald Osborne,
personality expert, claim that a
knowledge of human nature was es-
sential to true happiness at the an-
nual Panhellenic Banquet held last
night in the League Ballroom. I
Dean Alice C. Lloyd was also guest
speaker at the banquet where the
announcement was made that Alpha
Delta Pi sorority had won the scho-
larship award for the second consecu-
tive year.
The subject of Miss Osborne's
speech was "The Virtues and Vices
of Sorority Women." Among the
virtues was a knowledge of people
and the ability to appreciate the
amenities of life in a simple way.
Miss Osborne expressed no doubt
about the decorativeness of sorority
women but questioned their self-
discipline.
Dean Lloyd Challenges Women
Dean Lloyd threw a challenge to
all sorority women to use the weight
of their influence to shape the social
life of the University into something
sane and sober and to exert an in-
fluence toward the better things of
life.
Steady kindness to new sisters in
place of a sudden burst of friendli-
ness was advised by Dean Lloyd. She
cautioned the older women to be
sure the way that they are pointing
is right. The new ,women in soror-
ities were warned to think of the
duties that accompany the privileges
and pleasures of membership.
Harriet Shackleton, '38, president
of Panhellenic Association, acted as
toastmaster, introducing the speak-
ers and Virginia Eaglesfield, '38, as-
sistedL by Freida Halpert, '39, led
the guests in Michigan songs. Helen
Jean Dean, '39, was general chair-
man.
Award Give To Alpha Delta Pi
The award for the highest achieve-
ment in scholarship won by Alpha
Delta Pi was announced by registrar
Ira Smith. Two women in the soror-
ity had 30 and 28 hours of A last
year. This is the second year that
this award has been won by Alpha
Delta Pi.
Dean Lloyd presented as the award,
"Heads and Tales" by Malvina Hoff-
mann. Pi Beta Phi sorority holds
second place on the scholarship list
this year.
Miss Shackleton formally present-
ed the scholarships given by Panhel-
lenic Association to Bernice Cohen,
'39, and Barbara Bradfield, '38. These
scholarships will be given every year
by Panhellenic Association.
