Page 1A rfNDA LL WAF First Woman Adjutant Representatives of the nine local chapters of Beta Sigma Phi met in the home of Nell Harmon and finalized plans for the 18th annual Beta Sigma Phi Valentine Ball. The stage has been set, the hours of planning and work will cu- mlnate Saturday night when the band plays the first notes in fliit traditional Beta Sigma Phi extravaganza that will be held in tiie National Guard Armory from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. The Gult Coast Stage Band will be providing the music for the dancing and listening pleasure of all attending. Julie Gilbert, Chairman of the Valentine Ball, Phi Delta Omicron chapter and Nancy Smith, co-chairman, Xi Alpha Kappa chapter, presided as each committee reported on the final and finishing touches that wilb make the City Council sponsored Beta Sigma Phi Valentine Ball a royal, magical evening to be remembered. But magic moments don't just "happen". As with a genuine magic act, much plan­ ning and work must gcr before the setting of the stage and the crowning moments. Working behind the scenes are Donna Long, programs, Nu Theta chapter; Maureen Surette, ticket chairman, Lambda Upsilon chapter; Nell Harmon, Xi Eta Epsilon, decoration chairman and Edna Tatum, Zeta Zeta co-chairman; Elsie Chandler entertainment chairman, Beta Rho chapter; Chris Walker, food chairman, Nu Sigma, and Virginia Singleton, ccMshairman, Lambda Delta; and Marge Thornton, publicity, Xi Alpha Kappa. City Council President, Delores Todd and Elaine Livingston, Xi Eta Epsilon chapter also attended the Valentine Ball progress meeting. The annual Beta Sigma Phi Valentine Ball will open Saturday night, at the National Guard Armory, with the Grand March beginning at 8:30 p.m. The proceeds will be donated to the Heart Fund. TYNDALL AFB - Women are making inroads every day into what formerly was a man's world, and recently a Tyndall WAF scored a possible first for women in the Air Force. Second Lt. Karen Wetzel, who is assigned to the 4756th Supply Squadron, may have been the first woman adjutant in a formal parade in the Air Force. At least she was the first for Tyndall where the adjutant's .job had been strictly man's work. She was adjutant in both the December and January retirement parades held here. The petite brunette had asked CMSgt. Leon Nichols of the Air Defense Weapons Center if she possibly could be adjutant in the awards and re- Areo Bridge Players Compete In Secfional EVERYTHING'S GO — Valentine Ball chairman check last minute details for the annual Beta Sigma Phi Valentine Ball to be held February 10 at the National Guard Armory, with proceeds going to the Heart Fund.

This Beta Sigma Phi tradition is one of the social highlights of the community. Area bridge players competing in the Fort Walton Bridge Sectional returned victorious in a number of events, gaining respect for the quality of duplicate play and a generous supply of A. C. B.

Sergeant Nichols, the center's major, agreed to the proposal and Lieutenant Wetzel was on her way. Well, almost. She says soon after she got approval for her role as adjutant, she realized she'd have to add a little bass to her alto voice. After a few weeks' practice, she was satisfied with her voice, and if post-parade comments are any indication, she displayed poisa and considerable command in her voice during the event. Lt. Wetzl says she is perhaps more satisfied with the possible long-term effects of her "first." She notes that while many may feel her duty as adjutant to be a novelty, it may eventually open another facet of military life to WAF. The New Orleans, La., native is headed for an assignment at Osan, Korea. Although that is the only certainty in her future, she says she feels sure she'll make the Air Force her career. Whether or not Lt. Wetzel's career plans come true or not, one thing is sure • she is a WAP with a goal in mind and her eyes on the future Lt.
