Traditional songs of three se-
nior women's honorary societies
rang through the dorm halls and
sorority houses last night and
Tuesday evening as members
tapped junior coeds.
Mortarboard's "top secret" tap-
ping is carried out by members
wearing mortarboards and black
academic gowns, carrying flash-
lights and singing "Thy Ideals".
First they march through the
house in single file past the unsus-
pecting coed. Moments later they
return and place a mortarboard on
her head and hand her an invita-
The person who does the tap-
ping is usually affiliated with or
has worked with the coed pre-
viously. The following day initiates
wear the mortarboards on campus.
Campus Served
The primary purpose of the or-
ganization is to serve the campus,
according to Jeanne Newell, presi-
dent. Another purpose is to honor
outstanding senior women.
Bases for selection are leader-
ship, service and a comparatively
high scholastic average.
The societies' activ.0fs this year
included: sponsoring a Cinema
Guild movie, serving at the
Schoolmasters' Convention and
hostessing at the Hatchers' open
Members of Senior Society, hon-
orary for unaffiliated women, en-
act the tapping ceremony by pa-
rading through the dorms sing-
ing, "In and out the halls we wan-
der, singing as we go; of the girls
we're going to favor with our pins
of black and gold. Recognizing
loyal service and their jobs well

done, they will wear our bows and
collars and of us they will be one."
White Collar Worn
Each new initiate receives a
white collar which she will wear
the following day. A constitution
and invitation to initaition are
also presented to her.
The tapping is a surprise to the
coed. Her housemother and her
roommate are alerted beforehand
to make sure that she is in the vi-
Outstanding achievement
through leadership and service to
the campus community are prere-
quisites to the society.
This year Senior Society "plans
to do more to justify its existence
than just honoring people," stated
Jeannette Grimm, a member of
the organization.
Scroll Taps
"Out of the night comes a sound
of voices; Scroll now is tapping its
loyal crew." This is sung by mem-
bers of the society during tapping
ceremonies while they honor out-
standing affiliated women.
The next day new members,
dressed in maize and blue outfits,
wear yellow cardboard scrolls dec-

orated with blue ribbon around
their necks.
Leadership, service and loyalty
are the bases for admission, ac-
cording to Gwynne Finkleman,
Scroll president.
Promotes Cooperation
This organization attempts to
promote cooperation b e t w e e n
alumnae and college students and
works to further interest in cam-
pus affairs.
Scroll offers a $100 scholarship
to a junior affiliated woman on
the basis of character, Nhadership,
scholarship and need.

Seniors tapped for any one of
these three honoraries are ineli-
gible for membership in the other
The three honorary societies
worked jointly this year to spon-
sor a carrer conference which was
held in November. This clinic was
the first of its kind at the Univer-

outstanding in their various fields.
These women gave short talks
on their chosen careers and then
answered any questions that coeds
asked concerning their occupa-

Pledges To Work on Help Week Project


dc,"'446 Canpu4

BURO CATS-There will be no
Buro-Cat meeting at 4 p.m. to-;

Fraternity and sorority pledges
will participate in their annual
"Help Week" project at the Fresh
Air Camp tentatively scheduled
for April 28 to May 2.
Junior Panhellenic and Junior
Inter-Fraternity Council will join
forces during "Help Week" to
clean up the camp for the coming
summer, when underprivileged
children from the entire state
come to play and learn crafts.
* Thorough Clean-Up
During the week they paint,
rake grounds, wash windows and
pick up rubbish. Last year, after
spending each afternoon of "Help
Week" at the camp, ice cream and
cokes were served to the helpers
before they returned to the cam-
pus. The pledges and new initiates
of the fraternities and sororities
travel the thirty miles to the Uni-

versity sponsored camp via Uni-
versity buses.
The aims of the project are
two-fold. First, the workers are
contributing to a worthy cause.
Second, the sorority and frater-
nity pledges are brought together
in a common project.
Committee Plans
The organization and general
planning of "Help Week" are car-
ried out by five central commit-
tees. The publicity committee is
responsible for getting informa-
tion in the newspapers, on the ra-
dio and to the students. The post
committee notifies the students of
their assignments.
The main job of the finance
committee is to provide money for
the refreshments which are served
to the volunteer helpers. Tags are
sold by the pledges during a cam-

pus-wide Tag Day in order to earn
this money.
Each worker is identified by a
tag which is made by the tag com-
mittee. The maintenance commit-
tee is responsible for acquiring
tools from the fraternities with
which to complete the project.
Last year, "Help Week" was
held from;1 to 5 p.m., April 30 to
May 4. Approximately 400 stu-
dents worked on the project.
