The whoopie belle of New Year ' s Eve is the droopy girl of Examination Eve; the top male of the Christmas Ball is the flop man of the Fall Quiz. No matter how " comprehensive " the modern college becomes, students remain uncomprehending (and if you think you can change us go ahead and try.) Whatever is said, exams remain what Sherman termed war.

Every college campus has certain customs and practices that are accepted as correct. Yep! Even Centenary has ' em. Here we see the " hot air " custom demonstrated as thunder-voiced Sibley opens the debate season with a bellow . . . The parking lot is always popular. The density ol population has keen estimated at three to the square yard during chapel periods ... A great many boys seem to make a custom of " sweating " Colonial Hall . . . The eternal bull- session — here in a glorified form with Doc IVforehead, Garrison and Frieden- berg participating . . . Skeeters indulges in the universal college sport of " sweating the babes " . . . Miss Althar ' s permanent smile is a swell custom with everyone . . . " Brother " Riggs and Mary Agnes make the book store a fine place to loaf . . . Carney ' s seemingly continuous girl ' s coaching class in tennis has developed some good players . . .

Campus Dress I N various forms of dress or undress, the students of Centenary go blithely through their days, su- premely unconcerned or satisfactorily conceited about their appearance. During the cold winter months, little attention is paid to the color harmony of any outfit, since most people quite wisely con- sider the problem of keeping warm of major importance. Eccentricities in dress are evidenced mainly on rainy days, where the Boots and Breeches Brigade is out in full force, along with their com- panions-in-arms — the rain hat, the cellophane cap and gown, and the silk umbrella. Spring brings with it loud sweaters and ties, polo shirts with no ties and numerous other things too un- pleasant to mention. At this time of the year Mary Ella brings forth her green and silver sandals- — ideal for classroom wear. Ben Sheppard turns back his collar and lets his hair grow a la Lord Byron. Social functions find the boys casting aside the decorous black and white of the wmter for gaudy plaid shirts and two-tone effects. Some still wear suits (with vests!) to class which doesn ' t seem to embarrass their less formal brethren a bit. White shoes walk on the scene and depart very much the worse for wear after a round trip to South Hall. The gals dig up last summer ' s gullottes and ank- lets for this year ' s season. As days get hotter, the spasm of dress-up passes and people go back to being as comfortable as possible again, which means to seek a cool spot and lie there and complain. Which seems to be an excellent idea, so we ' ll quit this copy and let you finish it yourself, if you ' ve gotten this far in it. McFadden and Clark fitted out in a positive and negative manner, as a photographer would put it The accepted Chapel attire tor cold v inter days, as demonstrated by Doyle and Bourdier The cooler and more comiortable polo shirt outiits oi Wini and Sam are " the thing " tor Spring .... Tell us the joke too, Jimmy! Smart sport outfits appear all over the campus, as on Marguerite Lockhart. Page 117
