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

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 •

More High Spots • Jack Cooke upheld the morals, honesty, integrity, and sobriety of the school to become President of the Louisiana Methodist Student ' s Conference. • The Yoncopin grew up this year (nine by twelve dimensions), not only in size, but in beauty, origi- nality, and intelligent humor. (Advertisement paid for by the Yoncopin staff.) © A little bit of Mexico and a trifle of France was im- port ed in the shape of movies presented (for a quarter) at the Centenary Theatre by the Spanish and French clubs, respectively. @ The Centenary Art Department has progressed by leaps and bounds this term — in fact it ' s a jump ahead of itself, and will have to back down some to keep up with the rest of the school. Anyway, Don Brown deserves the credit and so does Ralph McKenzie for his individual exhibition. • It is an outstanding event when the flabby boys of the fraternities don headgear and shoulder-pads to battle for Alma Mammy and Pappa Kappa Sigma Theta. Even greater is the surprise to hecrr that an All-Fraternity team gallantly accepted a challenge of Tech to play an inter-collegiate game and beat the brawny Greeks from afar by a whole touchdown. • The Cen Goes — supposedly composed of Shreveport sorority girls — gave a dance (and got in trouble with the faculty for being so bold as to call it one) and a skating party and had their pictures taken, and that ' s all. • Imitators of the above worthy organization started the Campus club, which we prayerfully predict won ' t last long. We could say much more against the clubbers, but we ' ve given them too much space already. @ Centenary adopted L. S. U. tactics and for the first time in the history of the school, politics entered to soil the fair name of our student elections. Pupils headed for chapel were greeted with handbills, sound trucks, Ben Shepherd, non frats, etc., all trying to influence the gulli- ble " Not to chump off again! " and now our elections, formerly so honest, are tinged and sullied by this infa- mous deed. ©Professor Shaw was not with us during the first semes- ter. Not that that ' s a high spot in the year, but you see he was at L. S. U. studying English, which is a high spot in which to study English. • Kollege Kapers ground out a little local talent at the President ' s Birthday Ball. a worthy cause, regardless of the quality of such aforementioned talent. At least it was for • Another new club blossomed forth under the handicap of being named Psi Delta Chi. This, the Psychology club, seems to be of a more permanent nature than the ill-fated Chess club. Math, club, etc., etc. Anything that has such loud meetings must be a success. • A bit more of glitter and glory (but no less work) was added to the Yoncopin Sponsor Contest in the form of a big gold trophy, which you will see in firm Alpha Xi Delta hands on the sponsor ' s page. • Page 172 •
