Mortar Board, national honor
society for senior women, will tap
new members tomorrow, which is
a departure from the former pro-
cedure of tapping at Installation
Active members dressed in caps
and gowns will march from house
to house singing their tapping
song. Newly tapped women will
be recognized on campus by the
Mortar Boards they wear to class-
es in designation of their new
honor. Initiation and organiza-
tional meetings will be held later
in the week following tapping.
The object of Mortar Board
and the qualifications for mem-
bership are exemplified by their
motto - "Service, Scholarship,
and Leadership."
New members are elected to
Mortar Board in the spring from
women who will have completed
their junior year by the opening
of the fall term. Elections are by
unanimous vote of active mem-
bers, and no chapter may have
less than five or more than twenty
Before 1918, when Mortar
Board was originated, there were
on many university and college
campuses, local organizations of
senior women striving to render
service to other students and to
the administrations. Many of
these societies had similar stan-
dards of membership and ideals
of leadership.
Through the pioneering efforts
of four local societies, at Swarth-
more College, Cornell University,
Ohio State University and the
University of Michigan, a -strong
national organization called Mor-
tar Board was born.
At the first convention, Febru-
ary 15-16, 1918, the name (from,
the local societies at Michigan and
Ohio State), the pin (the small,
black Mortar Board originated at
Ohio State), the ritual, expansion
policy, and constitution were de-
cided upon. Since 1925, the society
has been nationwide.
Each chapter contributes some
service of value to its campus. The
types of service most. frequently
chosen include the recognition of
high scholarship, orientation of
new and transfer students, philan-
thropic contributions, the raising
of student government standards,
improving of faculty-student rela-
tions, and assisting the adminis-
