Hign Spots • The school year, 1936-1937, was notable in so many different ways that it is practically impossible to list all the outstanding achievements and personalities in such a limited space; but if our readers will bear with us, we shall endeavor to do so. If we praise what you have accomplished, be grateful; if we condemn it, be forgiving; and if we overlook it; be thankful — but above all, dear readers, be pa- tient — for we are but trying to please. • Most conspicuous among the campus achievements is the new gym — a gift of Arch Haynes — that im- posing structure which causes visitors to lower their voices in awe — and a good thing, too — because the acoustics increase the slightest sound to make it sound like a Spanish Revolution. Every day you can see a group of students standing around admiring it, with mouths wide, trying to believe it ' s really there. • And speaking of revolutions (if you waded through paragraph one you know what we refer to) Cente- nary had one of its own. An article in the Conglomerate crystalizing the student body ' s opinion, started the ball rolling and behold — from the melee emerged the revised chapel program. • Dr. Thayer delivered an excellent paper before the American Petroleum Institute in Chicago, on the " Present Status of the Hypothesis of the Biogenesis of Petroleum. " Kinda overwhelming, huh? :ZiZ2z • The new switchboard was an innovation — but this intri- cate, highly polished, modernistic mechanical device still doesn ' t keep people from calling to ask if Centenary has a Chinese professor with an English name, or why the school is called " Centenary. " • Centenary will not soon forget this season ' s football bat- tle with Texas A. M. It warmed every pigskin-lover ' s heart to see the fighting Gent eleven go out in front, 3-0, over the Farmers, who were doped to spread the Maroon and White in an even one-half inch layer all over the grid- iron, and then frustrate every scoring attempt made by the butter-fingered Aggies. • Tyler ' s annual Rose Festival was decorated by the pleasing presence of Centenary ' s Annie Merril Graham, who served as a Duchess during the festivities. We might add now to save another para- graph later that Betty Lane Grigsby did a little official shining at A. M. ' s Cotton Ball. • While we still have football on the brain, the lowly and overworked Frosh team had things this year. One of them was an uncrossed goal line, another was a human universal joint in Weenie Bynum. Well, you saw him run, didn ' t you? • The return of our beloved " Doc George " Sexton to active connection with his school, Centenary, as Public Relations director has certainly been a bright spot in everyone ' s year. And his " crowning " of the several queens has been as effective as ever. • Page 170 •

Hdll oi Fame Each year ' s graduating class contains some members who have distinguished themselves in some phase of college activity. It has been the custom of the Yearbook for several years to pick three or four of these outstanding students to give them special recognition in appreciation of their efforts in a special line of work. This selection is made on a basis of academic and extra-curricular activity as well as personal popularity and personality. We feel that the students pictured here represent the finest of the graduating class in their individual spheres. Walter Hohmann LiLLENE McKay Philip Stagg Patricia Julian We Nominate " Cowboy " Hohmann, because he has proven himself to be a sporting winner and loser in all his ac- tivities; because he is a likeable Yankee from Chicago; because he has played four years of mighty fine football at Centenary; and because we like him. Lillene McKay, because she has worked her four years at Centenary with quite efficiency and sought no recognition for it; because she made Alpha Chi for two years; because she was a member of the chemistry and psychology societies with high standing; because she served two years as Zoology Assistant and taught hardheaded Freshmen some of the basic " facts of life; " because she has worked long and hard at everything she did and has really been educated at college. Philip Stagg, because he has a funny chuckle which we like; because he is an honor man and Presi- dent of his honorary as well as his social fraternity; because he was a member of the Inter-fraternity Council and a two-year man on the tennis team; because he was Assistant in Commerce for two years; and because he helped us scrape together enough " jack " to issue this year ' s Yoncopin, which was no soft job. " Patsy " Julian, because she has been busier in her four years here than any other two people; be- cause she made both lower and upperclassmen honorary societies; because she served four years on the Women ' s Dormitory Council; because she was a Maroon Jacket both of her eligible years; because she is Co-ed Vice-President; because she spent two years on the Conglomerate staff and the Pan Hel- lenic Council; and because she has so many accomplishments that we know we have left some out. • Page 169 •

oi the Year • Instructed by Dean Hardin, Professors Banks and Earls; Paul Entrikin, Edgar Friedenberg, Albert Farnell, Leo Simmons, Glen Leapord, and Ed Railsback won the regional title in the S. I. M. A. contest and are now heading for the last round at Dallas. e The Alpha Xi ' s and the TKN ' s won a cup apiece for house decorations on Homecoming Day. So what? • Professor Odom took a group of psychology stu- dents down to the asylum at Pineville and we don ' t want to hear a word out of you about it either. • The Chi O ' s got three of the beauties, but the Zetas still won the top honor. That ' s what you get for split- ting your votes, girls. • Another trio was formed this year when another Zeta, this time Martha Shepherd, was elected band sweetheart for the third consecutive year. • In the more manly activities, Bill Snyder lifted the ball through the hoop enough times to be high- point man on the basket ball team, and Claude Mason slammed his way through the matches to be- come Southern AAU boxing champion. • Professor Ewerz represented this district in the curriculum revision project which is progressing rapidly in this state. What are the plans for arbitrating with sit-down students. Prof.? • Although the strictest of secrecy and censorship prevents us from revealing the ghastly details, we ' ve heard vague rumors to the effect that the annual faculty banquet N as a howling success, and that much that was on the program would liven up the Donkeypen considerably. • Music students can bang with more conviction and authority since the Centenary School of Music has been granted provisional membership in the National Association of Schools of Music, or some other paragraph to that effect. • Ogle-eyed State Fair visitors got an eyeful in the Centenary science department ' s exhibit of cotton products and fossils. The latter, collected by Edgar Friedenberg, required a full-time custodian to explain how they could be so old. • Boys who couldn ' t make the teams in any sport went in strong for the intra-mural contests, sponsored by the college for the first time. All sports were rep- resented except football, which is considered too rough for the little fellows, so they went out and played it all by themselves. • Alpha Sigma Chi ' s weekly (no! NOT weakly!) scien- tific book reviews, with coffee and conversation thrown in for good measure, look like a good thing. Why don ' t other groups with special interests try a hand at such reviews next year? V f " V v a ' X! AXam,, • Of course, you ' ve noticed them, who hasn ' t! Yes, we mean the clever and attractive displays and posters that Miss Althar has worked out during the year to induce the typical college student, who doesn ' t want to be educated, to read a good book now and then. • Page 171 t
