MATRIX TELLS STORY OF PLEASANT OCCASION Account of Theta Sigma Phi Installation Appears in Official Magazine 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 apparent. But honestly that was an for our future effort. Fortunately 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.

I therefore believe It lis my duty to my country to love it; to support Its constitution; to obey its laws; to. respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies."

KENTUCKY ENGINEERS .
