ITHE YONCOPIN PI KAPPA DELTA— (Continued) Pi Kappa Delta is a national forensic society with a membership of some one hundred and twenty-five chapters. Due to the efforts of Dr. S. A. Steger Dr. A. Salathe, and other members of the faculty the Cen- tenary debating council was transformed into the Louisiana Beta chap- ter of this national society in March, 1926. Since then the local chapter has grown until it now has a membership of five faculty members and eleven students. In the Spring of 1926, Bentley Sloane attended the sixth national convention of Pi Kappa Delta held at Estes Park, Colorado. During the last year the society has assumed all responsibility for forensic activities on the campus and has put Centenary in the public speaking world as never before. The College has undertaken the great- est debate program in its history, which includes eleven inter-collegiate contests with some of the South ' s most outstanding universities. On the campus this year two oratorical contests of first magnitude were held. It was Centenary ' s year for the State Peace Contest, and also the com- mittee at Nashville selecte d our College to be the scene, and Dr. S. A. Steger, the regional director of a regional meet for the South-wide " Know the South " oratorical contest sponsored by the Nashville Banner. Before the term was out the chapter initiated six new members to whom keys were presented at Commencement time. Next year the society will again take the lead in all forensic activities and will endeavor to maintain the fast pace formerly set by Centenary debaters and orators.
