News Articles on Associated Women Students Conference


The two articles from the Pacific Index which concerned the Associated Women Students Conference held in 1956 give brief descriptions of the outcome of the conference. The first article titled, "AWS Convention Features Speaker" gives a very neutral description of the day. The article mentions the main speaker for the day, Gertrude Houk Fariss, the theme of the day, "Today's College Woman in Tomorrow's World," and a description of some other groups who helped and what they did which included, "Kappa Delta luncheon, Theta Nu Alpha refreshments, Phi Lambda Omicron, printing of programs and booklet, Oak Leaf, entertainment, Boxerettes, courtesy girls, and Herrik hall, registration and housing." The second article however was much more descriptive of how the conference was viewed by attendees and others. The article was titled "AWS Convention... A Success." It touched on the, "friendliness and hospitality" as well as, " how well the program was organized, how friendly the atmosphere was, and what and excellent job the girls did as hostesses." The article doesn't talk about any of the discussions or speakers at the conference and mentioned how the only complaint was the rain. Both articles from the Pacific Index are in a scrapbook of the Associated Women Students.
