The New Physical Education Building F. ROM early summer the students, faculty, and interested friends of Centenary College watched with great pride the construction of their new $150,000 gym, the gift of W. A. Haynes. As each steel beam was raised and as each brick was laid, the enthusiasm mounted higher and higher, until on open- ing night, with the huge building ablaze with light, the cap of suppressed emotion was finally blown off in a burst of excitement and exhiliration. All day long the Gents, dressed in their new white sweat- ers with the temperature at 85 degrees, worked feverishly and perspiringly to conduct visitors through the rooms of their new " hang-out, " while truckloads of flowers arrived to grace the offices of " Doc " George and " Coach. " As the time approached and the doors were flung open to interested friends, many were the expressions of surprise and pleasure over the huge edifice, its stately Georgian lines, its impressive entrances, and its general architectural beauty. A loud rolling of drums by the Maroon Jackets corps and a blaring of trumpets and saxophones by the band officially opened the evening program. The first event was the girls ' basketball game in which the Sophomores defeated the upper- classmen and incidentally, proved that our co-eds are not entirely made of " sugar and spice. " Then " Doc " George took the spotlight, welcomed the visitors, paid a worthy tribute to Mr. Haynes, and in- troduced President Cline, The Board of Trustees, the coaches, and Bishop Dobbs.
