LORIE McELHENEY A great deal of publicity has been devoted recently to the plight of the country of Biafra where .thousands of children and adults are dying because of malnutrition. This is hard for Americans to believe, but it is true. Starvation is a way of life in some of the less fortunate countries of the world today. This is a shame because medical science has advanced so far during the last SO years. But all of these achievements will not save people from starvation. Only food can do that. The problem is growing as the population explosion continues. Perhaps someday the world can be united for the health and betterment of all mankind.

An energetic member of Xi Alpha Kappa, Marge pledged in the sorority in November I960, and has just completed nine years of per* feet attendance. She has been Valentine Queen and Girl of the year for chapter. She has served as president three times, two times as chapter president and the third time was Beta Sigma Phi City Council president. Selected by her sisters as one who has worked in sorority over and above her expected duties, and for per- feet attendance, participation, remarkable interest shown and her attitude, and for adding just that little extra something, Marge was named City Council Girl of the Year, the first to be so chosen in Panama City. The selection was made by all nine chapters, who nominated Marge as the first Beta Sigma Phi City Council Girl of the Year. It is a tradition among the sororities to select a Girl of the Year for each chapter, but this is the first time in the history of the Panama City chapters, that a Girl of the Year for City Council has been selected. The other precedent-setting act for which Marge is largely responsible, was the nomination of an Honorary Beta Sigma Phi City Council member for Panama City. During the end-of-the-year banquet, Marge pinned her nominee, Ludelle Brannon, women's editor of the Panama City News-Herald as an Honorary Beta Sigma Phi member. Again, all nine chapters voted on the Honorary member choice. During her work with City Council, Marge also spearheaded the move to form a Beta Sigma Phi blood bank. As extension officer, she was Instrumental (n forming the day time chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, the Pi Chi, HONORED — Marge Thornton was named Beta Sigma Phi City Council Girl of the Year, a first in the Panama City history of the chapters.

Born .in Chattanooga, Tenn. and reared In Georgia, which gives her a Southern •background, Marge now loves Panama City. "As a teenager when we drove to the beach, I used to say, 'One day I am going to live here,' All the children in our family loved it here at the beach," Marge related. Marge is married to Jim Thornton, who Is involved in construction business. They still have one child at home, 14-year-old Joyce, a sophomore at Mosley. As a family they love boating and fishing and dancing. Husband Jim enjoys all the socials the sororities have and is always asking when the next one will be, according to Marge. Marge's big thing at home Is gardening. A homemaker, she enjoys handcrafts, and does some decoupage among other things, but her main interest is people, she says. She has lived in Panama City for 21 years and when she worked away from home was a receptionist and office assistant. She is a member of the St. Andrew Baptist Church and Sunday School and the WMU. Marge will not rest on her laurels, however, the new year In sorority sees her in the job of vice president of city council which will keep her very busy.
