The Greeks Get In Our Hair No ioreword being necessary we ' ll omit this and stagger on into the bleeding bulk ot this unwholesome bunch, who sold their birthright toi a mess ot porridge, and some mess it was, and a fifteen-buck fraternity pin. Alpha Xi Delta This illustrious sisterhood was notably lacking in feminine pulchritude but top heavy with voting power. They threw their hefty carcasses wholeheartedly into the task of intimidating the lowly Frosh and the still more lowly football lugs until they emerged from the cess-pool of politics to find themselves the proud mothers of: one slightly battered but fairly intact Sponsor of the Yoncopin and May Queen; one loud but low Presi- dent in the person, or mouth, of Cornelia Row; one peroxide blonde Drum Major with no other points than a shiny baton; a cheerleader who possessed no particular features worth mentioning; two class officers of whom the less said the better; one beauty, Mary Ella Bartschmi d, who was beautiful but dumb, but, un- fortunately, not dumb enough. Chi Omega The bottom dropped out of Chi O this year though from the looks of some of them you ' d feel that it would never be missed. There were plenty of them here, but none of them quite all there. Their political crimes consist of: Mary Murff, who was an awfully snooty-beauty; Joy Clark, who would have won the Spon- sor Contest if she could have persuaded the other candidates to withdraw; Sis and Tibby, who both proudly displayed K. A. pins, which caused shivers of apprehension to run up every good Zeta ' s spine; one Osborn of the Kitty Jane, or common, variety; Sarah Williams, who was so darned nice that we couldn ' t think of a thing nasty to say about her; Aloyese Thorne, who was smart enough to get out of the organization and choose a fate-worse-than-death. (She got married). More parentheses — we hope. Zeta Tau Alpha Peak-reachers of the year in bringing politics to the greatest point of dirtiness is this smirking little group. Next year they will proudly present all of their this year ' s loot as inducements to Frosh who will probably be suckers enough to bite. Prospective chumps will be shown: Miss Centenary of ' 37; Queen Hutchinson of Homecoming whose glory may, or may not (who knows) (who cares) be mostly due to the shrewd election- eering of the beau-of-the-moment Hooper who tossed a litter of football signatures into her ballot box, the same applies to Nellie ' s Most Popular Girl conquest; President of the W. A. A. Genevieve Miller who bossed that scrawny association; and maybe, they will also illustrate their method of voting several times by writ- ing backwards. • Page 182 •

Another interesting affair of the diaphram is that of slow-talking Helen Finke, who seems determined to keep herself in the family at all costs. She progressed from last year ' s flame, Bill Fraser, to her this year ' s right arm, his duplicate brother, Richard. Investigation may decide whether she has made an improvement or not. At present even the fair lass herself wears a meditative expression. As the presses begin to roll, a new complication has arisen in the form and visage of K. A. -Brother Graves, who seems to be nosing out the whole Fraser family. Tommy Richardson (Chorus; He likes Judy, he likes Judy.) has divided his heart equally between (Chorus: (He likes Judy. He likes Judy.) the milk-white hands of (Chorus: He likes Judy. He likes Judy.) a luscious lady from that hilly country of Arkansas. (Chorus: Oh, darn that chorus.) His eyes hold the fire of a hill- billy troubadour when he sees (Chorus: He likes Judy. He likes . . . gurgle, gurgle supposedly illustrating a choking sound) the alluring face of . . . when he spies the heavenly eyes of . . . when he glimpses the di- vine form of . . . Aw, heck, we forgot her name. Romance reached a new level when it struck ittsy-bittsy Parry Stewart and not-so-ittsy-bittsy Dot Rippy. Just how she found a resemblance between Parry and her big-moment Kirkland of last season eludes us, but all kinds of things elude us so don ' t feel too badly. To get back to the subject (Chorus: For a change. Author: There ' s that damned thing again.) we have found that their favorite home is in the back seat of an automo- bile, anybody ' s auto, which only goes to show that blood is thicker than goose-grease, or you can ' t get ro- mance out of a turnip, or healthy, wealthy and wise a day keeps the doctor away, or who cares anyhow. Love number one, two, three, four, ad nausiam of Hall McCord is Hall McCord, preferably Hall McCord filled with the spiritous fermentus, which is bad Latin but good deduction. Prying away from his auto- biographical life temporarily, McCord retrieved that huge, glistening pin of his, and without waiting to polish it off bequeathed it upon a new display rack. Nice gal, too! By now we wish we had worn blinkers but even with those on the im.age of John Kurtz with Joy Clark haunts us. Everywhere we go we can still see them; sometimes it seems that they ' re everywhere, that ' s funny, they are. We can even be asleep and hear John making noise and Joy being quiet. Sometimes she gets so quiet that we feel that our eardrums are going to burst, but they never do. (Chorus: Aw, heck.) Sometimes she don ' t say so much of nothing that we feel that we ' re going crazy. (Author: Yah, fooled you that time.) Sometimes we think that we ' re never goinohn making noise and Joy being quiet. Sometimes (Author and Chorus: Thank God.)

or . . . Ddwson Hds No Hair Theta Kappa Nu Pappy of football lads in this Greek combination which is an amazing compound of brains and brawn with brains in the minority. Muscle-bound Gentlemen nearly all with a couple of nice people mixed in to keep up a passing average for the whole group, their year has been successful in the eyes of the alumni, at least, those whose eyes no longer function well. Chesty wearers of their insignia are: waddled-legged Hohmann who carried a football but no mental prestige. President of the Student Body and Senior Class Hooper to whom these posts were a parting gift from his political-dabbling predecessor, loud-faced " Noisy " Montgom- ery whose special talents no one yet has discovered, and an assorted lot of Freshmen muscles who may be had at half-price, or less. Lambda Theta Chi A self-termed " nice bunch of fellows " this group was also the campus leaders (ask any of them). Into their hands fell, by hook or by crook, (our dough goes on the latter) the unsavory gumbo of Yoncopinconglomerate, a hellacious conglomeration. Paul Entrikin (who will cuss like a sailor when he proof-reads this) who was Versatile and Editor, so what — , and Carstarphen who was sticky with goo which seeped over from his print- on-erstwhile-nice-sheets-of-white-paper-until-he-soiled-it. Among other things, the Lambdas had things which also ran in practically every contest of popularity on the campus. Kappa Alpha Kappa Alpha ' s chief concern this year has been to keep their reputation (they still suffer under the delusion that it is good), and to restore the grandure that was Greek and the glory that was glory, Biddy Tiffin did all he could to pay their bills from Conglomerate funds and at the same time keep slanderous slams out of the dirt columns. Johnny Van supported the brethren in bull sessions in the book store, while Rocks alone car- ried the flag of " red and yallow " into a field of sports other than ping pong. The band and Kollege Kapers were controlled by " Southern Gentlemen, " whose conduct on tours gave Centenary a rep that Mr. Shaw will have a hard time getting prospective freshmen to overlook. And just in case the fair sex should get together and say condemning words against the Gentlemen of the NEON LIGHT — these philandering fellows passed out pins to babes of all Greek organizations. Betty Lane and Pat from Alpha Xi Delta and Sis and Olga from Chi Omega do their ignoble best to support a cause past redemption. While about half the other lodge composes the Zeta Tau Alpha auxiliary of Tappa Keg chapter of Kappa Alpha, and proudly supports the stained and torn banner. Sigma Phi The local chapter of Sigma Phi broke all previous records and set an all time low for Greeks. They repre- sent the lowest type of Centenary goers (notice we don ' t even say Gentlemen). The things they don ' t hove are innumerable: no cars, no house, no gals, no nothing. Not even prestige, although Ed Dew did pole 28 votes in the last election (it was due to loyal brothers). If the bitter truth be told, they are too insignificant to have even a place in the Donkey pen, but got it because they bribed the editors so here you have them and now what are you going to do with them? But they do give good dances and lots of them, don ' t they!?! And somehow Stagg and Mason made good. • Page 183 •
