PROGRESS Could Centenary ' s most ardent supporters, in the dark days just after the removal to Shreveport, have looked ahead to this year, would they not have been cheered? The thought that, even with the addition of the academy property, the applications of more than one hundred high school graduates who were re- jected, must excel the fondest dreams of those supporters. Not only in numerical growth has this year been noteworthy. Enlargement of ideas, growth in scope and breadth, and inten- sifying in college atmosphere have characterized the 1927-28 session of our college. The year began properly with physical expansion. The pur- chase of the property of Centenary Academy gave the college new buildings to use for classrooms and for housing the music department. The football season will long be remembered as " the year the Gentlemen won ten straight games " , and the season " we beat S. M. U. " But more than that, we gained national recognition, local goodwill and the support of all. This recognition won by Centenary bore abundant fruit during the year, as evidenced by the installation of chapters of several national fraternities, both professional and social organi- zations being represented. Thus Centenary has come in contact with other colleges and universities, and has begun to achieve something of a cosmopolitan air. A very strong interest has been maintained in inter-colle- giate debating, oratory, dramatics, various clubs, and other extra-curricula activities. An extensive program of debates has fostered friendly relations between Centenary and the other colleges of the South. " The Masquers " has brought to light hitherto unknown talent among those students interested in dramatics. The literary geniuses have found their places on the staffs of the college publications, the " Yoncopin " and " The Con- glomerate. " With the season came basketball which was even more ex- citing than usual, and with baseball and track hard upon its heels, has given the athletes little time for rest. The May-day pageant ushered in the summer season with beauty and grace. The campus always contrives to look its most beautiful in spring. Now that the year has ended, we look back through a shim- mering haze to only the happy scenes. The discouragements and grey days are blotted out, and justly so. May we always remember only the happy hours.
