Presenting the 1937 Yoncopin Sponsor... " Many ' s the fair lass who fell on that battle field, " mourns Ye Old Scribe in fond recollection. " Many ' s the brave bosom that was laid bare to the foe. In those early days of the Sponsor Contest great was the valor of the three foes who laid low the poor merchants of the town and who fleeced the suckers of the campus until the whites of their eyes plead in agony. They were the inventors of the flying wedge which was foolproof for a five-buck ad and if managed properly for a ten or twelve. " The old grey head bows and a palsied hand sweeps away a frutive tear. He goes on husky-voiced, " Yes, indeed, it was beautiful to see Charlie Osborne steal a march on the Chi O ' s for about twenty-five dollars worth of tickets. To glimpse Joy Clark wheedling four-fifty from a moon-sick Freshman made a man glad to be alive — and a Sophomore. J LAJ .t " Doc " George opens the Sponsor Contest with a pep talk . . .

As green and goggle-eyed freshmen, they scurried through their first year, trying to keep in good with all, and not to look as low in the scale of life as they felt. As domineering Sophs, they became " big shot conscious " and were almost as insufferable as the new crop of first year studes. As apathetic Juniors, they fooled away their third year — blase, bored, and indifferent, or so they tried to be. Finally, as wor- ried Seniors grimly facing a tough comprehensive, they battled through the last long year, and now they ' re through. No more will the seven minute bell interrupt their slumbers and send them hustling off to the next class. No more wi ll they pause to watch the columns swaying in the breeze and predict that sobriety will be the first to fall. No more will they stand entranced in front of the bulletin board, which bears printed notices cordially inviting them to meet the Absence Committee for failure to meet the Absence Committee for cutting Chapel. No more will they pound up the steep slopes from South Hall, or slosh through the muddy parking lot, or march joyfully off to Chapel on a lovely Spring day; no more, alas, no more. And so it ends. They come and go, but Centenary serenely continues, good for another hundred years or so.

" And McCain, McCain had a technique which left them gasping. She ' d sneak in a couple of dazzling grins and then push a check-book into his face. " A momentary gleam comes in his eye and for a second a flash of a younger fire came into his aged-dimmed eyes. " Then came the day of closing. Ah, it was a beautiful sight. There was the Chi O ' s smirking in advance and the Zetas in full array gaily bedecked in vivid war-paint and rouge, then came the Alpha Z ' s. They strode up to the office with three of them struggling ' neath the weight of the money bags. The next day the campus rang with the cries of the wounded — terrible cries of ' Robbery! Crooked! They Cheated! ' Yes, Son, those were the good old days. "
