The Yoncopin, 1933 EVENTS OF 1932 AND 1933 PASS IN REVUE First we have a mad rush for registration on September 19th, when dear ole Centenary begins its 108th session. Did I say " rush for registration? " Well, I was mistaken. That rush came from the Greek letter organizations. They pounce on poor, unsuspecting freshmen without mercy, and a good candidate has about as much chance escaping them as a man has of not getting shot in Chicago. Third degree methods used by the police department on criminals are mild in com- parison. Among the male organizations many and varied requirements are necessary for a pin. First we have the organization that doesn ' t ask a frosh to pledge in a nice way, but threatens him with, " If you want to make the football team, you had better go . " Another requires a pledge to be able to control at least one vote in all elections. Another resorts to means only they could use,- — they not only " sweat " the frosh for four weeks, but solicit and enlist the aid of mothers, sisters, former teachers, sweethearts, and anyone else that will talk for dear old . Another, conspicuous for its small membership, depends largely upon its alumni to bring the pressure and give the rush parties. Among the female organizations we have one that depends on the D.B.S. Sorority at Byrd Hi to send them members. That ' s the only requirement necessary for a pin. There seems to be lots of stone-throwing in this chapter by those who live in glass houses. Another organiza- tion whose requirements are simple, go to such extremes as kidnaping to get their gal. We under- stand they got a few too soon in the winter term. The other organization had an extremely hard year — the freshman class consisted of only ninety girls — tough on the gals. After the mad scramble by the " Greeks " to find something to put a pin on, we have that great, upright and honorable matter of electing class officers. We are extremely happy to state that there wasn ' t a sign of political combination or the usual political corruption in these elections this year. This was especially true of the senior class. Still, we wonder why members of a cer- tain sorority couldn ' t hold their heads up for some time after the affair was over. Somewhere among this mess came the election of a student body president, who in the past has been one of three nominated from the Senior class, voted on by the student body. This year the plan was changed when certain organizations lost out in the Senior nominations, and knowing they couldn ' t win they supported a non-fraternity man who was put up by them at the last minute under their new system. He was elected. Since the election and all through the year, his Honorable High- ness has boasted of being elected without a trace of assistance from any organization; that it was the only straight election ever held at Centenary, and that he was elected purely on merit. We would like to ask who nominated him? Who moved the nominations close before any further nominations could be made? Who seconded this move? Enough people know the answer with- out going to the trouble of stating it here, but if you are still in the dark, ask His Highness once more. Perhaps he has repented since he received such hearty applause on arising to conduct Chapel one day. Another event worthy of note was the " Football Sponsor " contest. We heard long and loud protests from the mystic order of Pan-Hellenic and especially did members of one organization protest that it was against the sacred laws of this great order, and couldn ' t under any circum- stance be broken. We find this same organization, that protested with such vehemence against breaking a sacred rule of the royal order early in the year, being the first to break its rules for its own benefit later on, and paying a fine with hard-earned money. It might be well for mem- bers of this great order to stop and think before refusing to support campus activities that are promoted by the publications to increase interest and benefit the school materially. The publi- cations might cause said order untold troubles if this policy is pursued in the future. s • PAGE 172 •
