A PLEASANT TASK Miss Isabel Wolfe Hemenway, of Tuscon, Ariz., grand president of Alpha Delta Theta social sorority, will be in Lexington from April 9 to 14 inspecting the Alpha chapter at Transylvania and the Beta chapter at the University. Miss Hemenway was formerly an instructor in the English department at Transylvania. Several entertainments have been planned for her by the two chapters.
