Traditions Play Important Role in 'U' Sorority Life

t (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
In a series of articies deaing with the
history and traditions of the sororities
on campus.)
Traditions -- some worthwhile,
others simply fun-play a part in
life at any one of the nineteen
sororities on campus.
Though never a musical society,
Alpha Chi Omega has carried
through its history the lyre. This
was chosen, as its badge by the
group of coeds at DePauw Uni-
versity School of Music who found-
ed the sorority in 1895.
Coming on the University cam-
pus in 1898, the national organiza-
tion now has 80 active chapters,
four of which are in Michigan.
Proving the worthwhile side of
sorority life, the group has adopted
as its national philanthropy the
Cerebral Palsy Fund. Locally, the
r Alpha Chi's make toys for hos-
pitals in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti
to be used in recreational therapy.
First Sorority
The distinction of being the first
secret society for college women is
claimed by Alpha Delta Pi, found-
ed in 1851 at Wesleyan Female
Aiding in the colonizatior, of
their 85th chapter, AD. Pi's from
the University will participate in
rushing at Michigan State Uni-
versity during the next two weeks.
Among the house activities is
the traditional tapping ceremony

for Kappa Koka Kola; an 'honor-
ary' for members having absolute-
ly no musical talent.
Alpha Delta Pi's national serv-
ice project is the provision of
equipment for treatment centers,
clinics and schools of handicapped
Founded in 1909 at Barnard,
Alpha Epsilon Phi came to the
University of Michigan in 1921.
One of 38 chapters, the local
group has developed traditions of
its own, including the senior
brunch held every semester. At
this brunch each senior is honored
with a song written especially for
As- part of the morning's cere-
mony, engaged coeds must suck
lemons while pinned women wear

safety pins and married A E Phi's
light candles.
The sorority project is the sup-
port of a foster child in Europe.
Worthwhile Work
Growing to 65 chapters since its
beginning in ;1904, Alpha Gamma
Delta was colonized here in 1922.
Alpha Gam's have adopted the
Cerebral Palsy Fund as their na-
tional service project, raising
money through a "white elephant"
auction and the sale of stationery
and cigarettes in the house.
Working with children, the sor-
ority also aids a German war or-
phan and gives hospitalized child-
ren the toys which members first
exchange at their house Christmas
Offer Award
Barnard, Columbia University,
was the site of the founding of
Alpha Omicron Pi in 1897. One of
60 chapters, the group began in
1921 in Ann Arbor.
The latest achievement of the
A O Pi's is the new Community
Service Award which will be
awarded annuallybyhthe group
to the sorority on campus which
has shown the most outstanding
service and house spirit.
Fun reigns at the A O Pi Christ-
mas party each year as the presi-
dent becomes Santa Claus and the
housemother, Mrs. Santa. Waking
up the pledges, who have spent
the night, members exchange gifts
and find their places around the
dining room table by means of

appropriate poems which are writ-
ten on her place mat.
"Honoring" deserving members,
the house has a mock honorary,
Adopt Town
Starting its 69 chapters in 1893,
Alpha Xi Delta brought its pin
to the University campus in 1920.
Outfitting southern schools with
books and desks, the sorority has
taken the "Save the Child" pro-
ject as its national philanthropy.
The group has also adopted an
entire town. Beginning during the
war, Alpha Xi's sent aid to the
small town of Noordwyk, Holland.
When a flood hit the village last
spring, the sorority again came
to the rescue.
In appreciation, the people of
Noordwyk honor any member of
the group who visits there, pre-
senting her with a key to the city.
