high scholastic achievement of its members,
and also to stimulate students' interest in
the field of Economics. The society publishes
a journal which promotes both these aims
through its nationwide circulation. Mu Chap-

with these factors in mind.

Sigma Pi Sigma is a national Physics honor society.
It was founded in 1921 as a local honor organization
at Davidson College, North Carolina, and in 1925
plans for the creation of a national society were put
into action. As of June, I960 there were over 105
chapters in Sigma Pi Sigma. The Boston College Chap-
ter had its origin with a group of interested Physics
students who petitioned the society for membership,

and in I 953 the Chapter was created.

The goals of Sigma Pi Sigma are the awarding of
recognition to the deserving student of Physics, the
promotion of interest in research and study, the en-
couragement of professional spirit, and the stimulation
of interest in Physics among college students in

Delta Eta Chapter of Alpha Kappa Ps
is a chapter of the oldest professional busi-
ness fraternity in the United States. Its
principal objectives are to further the we
fare of its members, to foster scientific re-
search in the fields of commerce, account-
ing, and finance, and to educate the public
to appreciate and demand higher ideals

Delta Eta, one of the foremost chapters
in the country, has continually attempted
to better itself in all phases of professiona
activity. Recently, it initiated the Delta
Eta "Newsletter," a bi-monthly publication
devoted to research in the various fields of
the business society. Also, a Career Day
has been planned for the benefit of the
student body. One of its most recent suc-
cesses was its display of the major fields
of study in the College of Business Adminis-
tration. Criteria for membership are charac-
ter, scholastic achievement, and participa-
tion in extra curricular activities.

Delta Sigma Pi is one of the most promi-
nent and leading national fraternities in
the professional field. Its purpose is to foster
the study of business in universities; to
encourage scholarship, social activity and
the association of students for their mutual
advancement by research and practice; to
promote closer affiliation between the com-
mercial world and students of commerce;
to further a higher standard of commercial

Kappa Pi

Boston College's newest fraternity, Kappa
Pi, was founded in 1959 by the male stu-
dents of the School of Education. In its first
two years, the fraternity was mainly inter-
ested in acquiring members. This year Kappa
Pi launched a program to attain the high
educational objectives proclaimed in its
constitution. A series of speakers and social
events were designed to promote fellowship,
bring the members closer to the profession,
and render service to the University.

In the future, Kappa Pi hopes to include
more students from the other schools so that
those students interested in the teaching
profession may reap the benefits of member-
ship in such an organization.

The Sociality is a way of life which fosters
the spiritual life of its members and those
around them. With personal spiritual life as
a background, the Sodalist engages in apo-
stolic and social activities both on campus
and in the community. Within the Sodality

itself there is a candidate program for new
members which is directed by Reverend
Edmund J. Hogan, S.J. Small groups of
consecrated members meet weekly with
Reverend David Cummiskey, S.J.

Graduate Nurses' Sodality

The Boston College Graduate Nurses' Sodality was
organized on January 16, 1949, under the special pat-
ronage of Our Lady of the Visitation. The purpose of
the Graduate Nurse Sodality is to organize Catholic
nurses under Our Lady's name and to cultivate a sin-

John Berchman Society

Men's Sodality

The Men's Sodality of Boston College
provides a specialized training program de-
signed to develop greater lay initiative and
responsibility in the service of the Church,
a better understanding of one's role in the
Mystical Body, and an ability to appraise
world, community, and campus problems
with a view to their solution. The Sodality
then acts as a framework within which the
Catholic spirit of the members can be effi-
ciently used to exert a Christianizing influ-
ence on the social order.

The John Berchman Society is
formed for the specific purpose of
organizing all those dormitory
students who wish to serve the
daily and Sunday Mass at St.
Joseph's Chapel. In the fall of
each year, classes are conducted
by the regular members for the
benefit of the new members. The
members perform a great service
for the priests who prefect the
dormitory corridors.





Officers: Prefect, Virginia O'Connell; Secretary, Mary E. Lynch; Trea-
surer, J. Lee Cawthorne.

The aims of the Evening School Sodality are to offer the evening stu-
dents an opportunity for spiritual enrichment by sponsoring religious ac-
tivities. Days of recollection, holy hours, Communion breakfasts, and an
annual retreat are only some of the activities the Sodality utilizes in its
accomplishment of the work of the Lay Apostolate.

Basic Nurses Sodality

Officers: President, Marie Duggan; Vice-President, Ann Cumming;
Secretary, Judith McLaughlin; Treasurer, Kathleen Roycroft.

The Basic Nurses' Sodality forms a vital
link in the Archdiocesan chain of college
sodalities. Through it, the undergraduate
nurses of Boston College succeed in their
motto, "To Jesus through Mary." Their ac-
tivities are arranged to fit their busy sched-
ules both in the hospital and while on cam-
pus. They are ably led by Moderator Rev.
Gorman, S.J.


IIII New York


Officers: President, Peter Viall; Vice-
President, David Wands; Secretary,
Pam Prime; Treasurer, Roy French.

The New York Club of Boston College was formally
founded in 1954. Previous to this time, an unorganized
Metropolitan Club existed without a charter. The
purpose of the Club is to foster an atmosphere both
spiritual and social, and provide a closer union among
the students from the New York-New Jersey area.
Included in the activities of the club are an annual

Christmas dance, this year held at the Summit, New
York City's newest hotel, and a picnic held at the
close of the school year. The Club also organizes trips
to athletic events, holds several dinner dances and
parties, as well as sponsoring a Communion Break-
fast each year.

Western N. Y.

Officers: President, Mike Hanna; Vice-President,
Gene Clifford; Secretary, Betsy O'Connor; Trea-
surer, Dave Knipper.

The Western New York Club was formed
in the early spring of 1961 for the purpose
of fostering the spirit of Boston College at
home and on campus. It is the youngest of
the regional clubs at Boston College, and it
is rapidly becoming one of the most active.
The club sponsors social functions in New
York State such as the annual Christmas
Dance in Rochester, and various social func-
tions here in Boston. The officers of the club
are now striving to organize a system where-
by the people of the Western New York
area will be as closely united after they
graduate as they are while at the Heights.



In 1954, a small group of students from
Maine banded together in order to retain
a certain autonomy and to promote to the
student body the haven known as "Vaca-
tionland". The grandest social event on the
agenda is the Annual Christmas Dance, now
in its eighth season and growing with the
times. A small but familial group, the Maine
Club of Boston College is confident of pros-
perity and continued growth.

Officers: President, David Madigan; Secretary, Alice Mac-
Donough; Treasurer, Paul Chabot; Vice-President, Carl Cyr.

Rhode Island

Formed in the fall of 1958, the Rhode Island Club
has been characterized by a steady growth over the
past three years. The membership has expanded from
twenty-eight to sixty-five and the social functions
have increased. The Club sponsors dances and parties

in Rhode Island, both during Christmas and Easter
recesses, and banquets in Boston. Profits are used to
sponsor the orientation program for incoming Rhode
Island freshmen.

Lewis Drill Team

Membership on the Lewis Drill Team is voluntary
and open to all cadets. It brings to Boston College
and the Army an honor in keeping with the motto,
"Ever to Excel". The team is composed of three
platoons which participate in four annual competi-
tions. As a result they have become "New England's
finest." Their appearances in the parades around
Greater Boston, New York on St. Patrick's Day, and
Washington, D.C. during the Cherry Blossom Fes-
tival, make them goodwill emissaries of the Univer-
sity and of the R.O.T.C. These drill champions also
provide honor guards for distinguished guests and
color guards for athletic events.

The Boston College R.O.T.C. Band has grown
in both quantity and quality along with the R.O.-
T.C. Brigade. This has become particularly ev-
ident through the ever increasing demand for
its appearance in public events. Under the able
drum majorship of Cadet Francis Burke these
musicians have displayed their talents in numer-
ous performances in parades from New York's
Fifth Avenue to Boston's Tremont Street. On
campus they participate in the R.O.T.C. Day
ceremonies, the Military Mass, and the Spring
Review. These envoys from Chestnut Hill have
captured many victories in the form of prizes
and awards; we are well proud of their outstand-
ing achievements.

so designated by Col. Wood after careful
consideration of their qualifications. These
seniors possess outstanding qualities of lead-

The underclassmen are the spark of the
University. They are the source of all the
unbounded and unguided energy that is
channeled into the production of the ac-
tivities of the campus. As Freshmen they
are as yet unsure of their way; they grope
unsteadily, and through their errors, they
learn. The cocky self-assuredness of Sopho-
more year finds them climbing a little closer
to the responsibility of which they are so
capable, but just one last fling, one more
blow-off before they take the next step. As
Juniors they can see what must be done and
they do it. Their path lies clear before them;
as each decision is passed, they approach
ever closer to their objective, to the stature
and realization of Senior year. They are the
heirs of the world and they are reaching for
