MATRIX TELLS STORY
OF PLEASANT OCCASION
Account of Theta Sigma Phi
Installation Appears in
By Marguerite McLaughlin
Sweet with the romance of our Old
Kentucky Home was the Initiation of
Phi Sigma, the University of Kentucky
journalistic club Into the national
order of Theta Sigma Phi. WJe received our honor guest and installation
officer, Harriet Dally, In the morning
and lunched at the cafeteria at noon
just to try to, make ourselves feel
like the day was an ordinary one and
keep down our feeling of superiority
over the rest of the mere mortals with
whom we hobnob daily from becoming
But honestly that was an
for our future
standing we were able to fly the campus at an early hour. We motored to
Idlewlld, a beautiful rustic cottage on
the banks of the Kentucky river. The
day was perfect. It should have been of
course, for no other kind of day would
have suited or fit in the story. The
head of the Department of Journalism
had invited us to the annual journalism picnic and we accepted for ourselves and our guest.
We arrived at the river in the early
afternoon and swimming, rowing and
dancing at Cherry Lodge were our
main diversions until the picnic lunch,
after a round of yells, songs, and
"thank yous," we rowed across the
river to Idlewlld and were Initiated.
