1962: Zeta Tau Alpha national fraternity had initiated 75 new members into Delta Pi chapter at Eastern New Mexico University.

Officers installed by the new fraternity were Sandra Ozment, Roswell, as president; Sandra Booker, Birmingham, Alabama, vice-president; Loretta King, Clovis, secretary; Beth Lemons, Hereford, treasurer; Pat Gardner, Causey, historian-reporter; and Katie Medlin, Hobbs, ritual chairman.

1937: About 50 area residents attended the quarterly meeting of the Eastern New Mexico Chamber of Commerce.

Speaker Richard Hindley, manager of the Clovis Evening News-Journal, told the crowd it needed to keep track of what was going on in Albuquerque and Santa Fe and be “adequately represented” at state meetings.

“We shouldn’t get sore when we are left out if we don’t go to the meetings at which plans of statewide interest are laid,” Hindley said.

Representatives of Hobbs, Carlsbad, Roswell, Artesia, Tatum, Lovington, Portales and Clovis attended the ENM Chamber meeting. The Tucumcari chamber sent its regrets by telegram.
