:: the Year • The ampitheatre was completed by W.P.A. during the summer, but we still don ' t have a stage. And what good is an outdoor theatre minus its stage? — ask any couple on a moonlight night! • A brother organization to the Maroon Jackets were the similar hued Shirts, who tried to inspire reluc- tant fans into cheering vigorously and failed dismally. It furnished an opportunity for the boys to shine, in their own lights, however, so they enjoyed it. • The Maroon Jackets marched out in fine style with drums to beat and tatoos to learn and shuttles to shuttle — only they didn ' t. Anyhow, with Rosenblath ' s baton and Johnnie ' s patience to guide them, the " sheep " did as well as could be expected. • The Conglomerate issued an April Fool edition, which was actually read (pardon — it was green), and the campus awoke to the fact that we do have a paper published here. The only trouble was, ye editor got so obsessed with the idea that he just kept on running burlesque stuff and people began to groan for the former days when they could quietly ignore the Conglomerate and pretend it wasn ' t there. In the middle of April the Chemurgic Council met on the campus, gathering speakers and listeners from far-away states as well as local circles. A large number of students sat through, and supposedly absorbed, the interesting talks. STHIS STILL THE APRIL FOOL 7 f EDITION?? r oX f • An unexpected but very welcome spring pastime presented itself in the form of Mr. Larkin, California astronomer, and his big telescope. Students spent several afternoons peering at Venus and learning about stars. (See last snapshot page.) 9 Another pleasant surprise was the rebuilt and streamlined Religious Emphasis Week. Despite the fact that an alarming tendency toward " Courtship and Marriage " was noted, particularly among the fair sex, the discussion groups worked nicely and really did a lot of good. At least it started some people thinking for a change. @ The sloppy but-hard-fought soft ball schedule introduced school-sponsored intra-murals in a big way. The twenty-five-game schedule, topped by a " little world series, " promises a cup to the victor and ali- bies to the losers. 9 The new tennis courts, such as they are, will be quite a help in preventing bloodshed when sixteen people want to use one court. Now, may we humbly suggest an entrance from Centenary Boulevard to the parking lot to save our tempers (and tires!) in another way? @ $500,000 would do a lot for Centenary, and we sincerely hope the campaign to secure it goes over. Nev buildings and equipment are not a luxury , but a necessity. This is the end, for which Allah be praised, and don ' t come pestering us about some important event we forgot to mention, because it probably wasn ' t worth it anyhow! • Pag« 173 •

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 •

1936 Yoncopin Wins First Class Honor Rating . . . The Staffs Realization.. w= E REALIZE — we realize — just what do we realize? Well, anyhow we ' re not going to apologize overly much. We have tried to present as accurate and as true a picture possible of life on the Cente- nary Campus, shorn of the usual frills and whitewash of college annuals. Our attempts have been to show thmgs in their actual colorings and not through rosy glasses; we have shown what the groups did and not what they were supposed to do; we have not had an editorial or pictorial policy of ballyhoo. Campus political filth, popular ventures, general opinion, student practices; all of the faults as well as the virtues of the college have been depicted, and if the final result has suffered from the transcription from life to paper, it is at least a fairly true reflection of campus life at Centenary College during 1936- ' 37. We hope this is a good Yoncopin and will not shame its excellent predecessors. The virtues of this book are the virtues of Centenary —and so are the faults. Page 174 •
