™THE YONCOPINS tions was very clever and we nominate the following as an All-Star team: Mary Grace Lowry as Professor Harding. Ida Mae Cox as Burney Howard. Ellen Montgomery as Frosh Baker. Andrey Barr as Professor Wheeler. Irby Lea May as " Papa " Hughes. The Zeta Delta Sorority won the much coveted 18-karat Sn loving cup with a touching rendition of a ballad concerning the woes of Romeo and Juliet. The chorus was made up in such a manner that when it " left-faced " the audience had a picture of neatly dressed young gentle- men and when it " right-faced " they saw a bevy of elaborately costumed girls. This half-and-half condition was a source of great mystery and joy to the spectators. Beginning with the story of the meeting of Romeo and Juliet in a restaurant (where Romeo owed for what Juliet) the song continued through their life history and ended with a warning that balconies must be omitted in the erection of new dormitories at Centenary. Sure, a good time was had by all! MODEL 1927 GRANDMA My dear, when I was a girl your age, I thoroughly knew what cooking means, And great was the praise that my cuisine got — (By the way, will you open a tin of beans?) My child, in the matter of cleaning house I swoon at the things you girls don ' t know (One moment, dear, will you move that lamp A little aside, so the dust won ' i show; ' ) My love, in speaking of needle work, The sewing today is a frightful sin, Such slovenly work I never saw — (Will you kindly hand me a safety pin?) My baby, you girls think more of men Than e ' er young ladies did before. (Ah me, is my henna rinse still in? Fcr eld Mr. Jones is at the doer!) 196

' THE YONCOPIN MAY DAY FETE April 30, the third annual May Fete of Centenary College was presented by the Woman ' s Athletic Association. The program featured a May Day legend interpreted by songs, dances, and pantomime. In the May Day story, Youth, in search for fit companions for life, comes to the court of the May Queen. The Queen answers her request by summoning Faith, Hope, and Charity. These com- panions are followed by Joy, Health, and Pleasure. Then Youth is allowed to view the different vocations of life and from those of business woman, artist, home maker, agriculturist, trained nurse, physical culture teacher, and school girl she chooses that of physi- cal teacher. Following the vocations comes Romance to heighten Youth ' s happiness. Truth and Beauty complete the train. When the companions of Youth are all present, the court cele- brates the inauguration of May by the winding of the May Pole. The Fete was given under the supervision of Mrs. H. H. Huckaby. Miss Genevieve Reed was crowned as May Queen, and Miss Audrey Barr took the role of Youth. Miss Reed wore a white satin dress trimmed in pearls and wide bands of lace. Her crown was of pink roses. As a queen she was a lovely picture against the background of flowers and ferns. As a dancer she was graceful and charming. Miss Barr made a realistic Youth. The stage was an artistic spring setting with blue and pink morning glories twined in the foliage. Piano accompaniments added much to the beauty of the Fete. 198
