" ; was begun in
1943 but dur-
the war,
work on it was
stopped-at the
request of Mr. Burke and the
money invested in war bonds.
During the spring of 1946, work
on the portrait was again begun.
The portrait was a recogni

service given by. Mr. Burke to

I heard several of you 'jerks'
were looking around the corner
for a few East
er rags. Well
"rvtoff" for
tall "chicks"
let us start
off with some
thing that will
decrease your
height in two
what about the
solid color
suits, for in
stance a navy
blue suit and maroon acces
sories. Fashion editors say toppets
are going to be quite popular
and Jean Davis has started that
fashion with a "fine' white
boxy jacket and small gold
buttons with a navy blue suit.
By the way, I've heard sev
eral senior girls mention the
fact that they are looking hard
for gowns. Well, seniors, how
about looking at a few pat
terns featured in this month's
'Seventeen'. Incidentally; who
ever said all the teen-agers do
is stay in the streets and jitter
bug but the sewing exhibition
down Sage-Allen proves that
this is strictly all wrong.
So long.

though Alpha Xi Delta's na
tional office will have to wait
for a new college generation
at the University of Vermont
before they can re-activate their
chapter there.
Last year the members of the
local chapter unwittingly
pledged a young colored stu
dent, not because they did not
know she was colored but be
cause they felt she qualified.
When the national office
heard of this they said witting
ly, that kind of thing was sim
ply not done in Alpha Xi Delta.
They either had to drop the
pledges or have the whole chap
ter placed on. probation.
Full indication of the fact
that the girls are still holding
their ground came last week,
when its members took no part
in "rushing" activities which
means that there will be no new
members this year.
