he on Keq zjvaies uvouan tne g t eav By Lady Jean Regy N THE SECOND WEEK in September Centenary lived up to its usual traditions by opening. There seems to be no way around it — the only way to get the year started is for school to open. But what makes the opening of Centenary stand out from all other openings is the way it does it. No quiet, gentle meth- od for us. The recognized way is for all the sororities and fraternities to jump down each other ' s throats with the crack dirty and the rushing filthy. Another time- honored occurrence is to get the poor, innocent fresh- men so confused that they aren ' t sure for the first six weeks of school whether they are attending college or a dog fight. In this field we give the palm to the Chi Omegas, for their famed and notorious sweat boxing tactics. When the smoke of battle cleared away and the re- spective organizations sat down to see what they had gotten from the melee, there was great surprise in some quarters. The Southern Gentleman were particularly surprised to find that one of their K.A. sons had gone and pledged what they consider to be one of the lower class of fraternities, and that the Lambdas had snatched another one of their prizes. Some of the gals weren ' t so pleased either, in the cold, sane light of October, but do you think you could get any of them to admit it? Not if you know your female organizations at Centenary. After this holocaust came football season. As usual, the stars of the gridiron were at a premium amongst the women. Who knows what hair-pullings, what pinch- ing and scratching went on in private for even one date with one of our intelligent and cultured football play- ers. Everyone turned out for the home football games like something was going to happen, and then the ma- jority spent their afternoon wishing they had gone to a good movie. When it came time for the out of town games, the whole school treked to Beaumont. The highlight of that trip was the alumnus getting ex- pelled for being inebriated. Oklahoma seems to be a bad state for Centenary. They must go tougher up there, or else our boys don ' t care for the climate. Football season gave the excuse for the holding of the first of our famous " clean and honest elections. " This time election-winer Edith Bailey won the illustrious title of home coming queen, thereby giving the Alpha Xi ' s a chance to hold up their head for another year. What will they do after Edith graduates? Thanksgiving came along, and the world and its grandma went to New Orleans to see us beat Loyola. That was another good trip, though no one got kicked out of school. Of course, there was a little trouble with house detectives, and those who had to sleep on the floor in Baton Rouge the next Saturday are suing because of the permanent waves given their spines. It was just about this time of the year that the Lambdas decided that they could cover more territory if they weren ' t tied down to a fraternity house. And, anyway, it was too much trouble to have to pay light, water, gas and rent bills that had run for months. (Maybe this is the reason the Lambdas had such trou- ble in the spring.) The Christmas holidays gave all of the poor over- worked students a chance to eat too much, sleep too much, and to catch their second wind for the third lap of the great race for the biggest big shot on the campus. After Christmas we had a spree of nice, clean elec- tions. They tried a new wrinkle on the popularity con- test this year. They had a committee nominate the candidates, and it was all supposed to be a very secret. but one of the gals just couldn ' t stand it, and did some heavy campaigning for her lodge. The Zetas sho ' must of lost their rabbit foot on this election. The snooty ones thought they had the whole thing in the bag. but they came out with only one place to their credit. But soon they stepped right out like little ladies and elected a May Queen, so they fe 1 t much better. The Sigma Phis received a body blow at the begin- ning of the second term when their most shining light left them in a spot by transferring to another school. The boys were in quite a panic for a while, until after much debating and investigation, they came to the con- clusion that the only thing to do was to elect another president. One week the Conglomerated didn ' t have anything to fill up space, so they decided to have a contest to elect the most outstanding students on the campus, if there was such a thing. The faculty committee picked some dark horses, and at election time the non-sorority flock astounded everyone by placing two of their number. My, my, what is the school coming to? It ain ' t like the good old days, when the very idea of such a thing would have made the Greeks have months of night- mares. They seem to have taken it quite calmly, though, and at last report were doing as well as could be ex- pected, thank you. The night clubs of the town decided that business wasn ' t very good and something must be done about it, so, deciding that college students made good chumps, they now have " College Night. " This might have been a good idea at first, but you know how impulsive these collegiates are. It wasn ' t long before several of them showed their breeding and tried to kill a couple of people. Now we hear from one of our most notorious students that the night life of the town is " a little rowdy " and so the sensible students now stay at home and miss a lot of fun. In the spring came the election of Greek officers for the coming year. They all must have gotten together and made a pact to make them the same calibre for they all hit a new low standard. Which makes it nice ... for imagine the plight the others would be in if a real, honest-to-gosh capable guy appeared on the scene. As it was spring it wasn ' t long till you could ascer- tain with surety all the suckers, for couples began to be permanent fixtures in their own little private spots. This spring must have some special quality, for it even brings them to the point of courting on the campus. Well, in retrospect, it looks like the year has been just about average, with the usual inane contests, scrap- ping, and climbing — and for what. You figure it out, it gives us a headache. [190]
