Presenting the 1937 Sports Festival Queen S. ' CORING the ancient and decrepit " for she shall be queen of the May " idea, the W.A.A. girls exer- cised such ingenuity and originality as they possessed to present a unique program on May 3, on the campus, and succeeded. Their concentrated efforts took the form of a Sports Festival, with every type of women ' s athletics at Centenary represented differently and indifferently. Of course, they couldn ' t dispense with the queen idea entirely, so Ernestine McCain was elected by the usual combine to the exalted position of ruler over all the little athletes. Members of her court, consisted of ten Cente- nary belles and one each from Dodd and Marshall, were selected by a faculty committee and hung around trying to look attractively athletic and not accomplishing much. Just a group ot the May Court . . . last year, oi course . . . Here are all the flowers representing " The Dance of the Flowers " . . . Last year ' s queen, Laura Belle Parker, and attendants. • Page 152 •

" 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. "

The program was something on the order of a three-ring circus, with fencing, archery, riflery and badminton, riding, etc., going on as far as the eye could (or would want to) see. The most lamentable aspect of this wonderful occasion was the fact that, although it presented a wonderful opportunity for displaying Centenary ' s best in the way of feminine pulchritude, there was, alas, little to be displayed. With this sad fact facing us we creep away from the Sports Festival, which was probably pretty good anyhow.
