Saga of the Spasm I The Athenians come down like big wolves on the frosh. Their cohorts are gleaming with pledge pins and bosh. And the sheen of their smiles is right pleasing to see Says the frosh, " Will they really do all that for me? " Spasm II Hugh punch bowls are filled with spiked punch to the brim, And stuffed olives and cigars are stuffed into him. All the brothers are chummy — their jokes rather raw, Chapter history unveiled with hushed accents of awe. Spasm III To prevent " cutting in " by a treacherous foe The brothers tell freshie, " To the country let ' s go, " There he ' s filled up on hot-dog and sweated for hours While rambling around ' mid mosquitoes and flowers. Spasm TV ' Tis the night before pledge day, and all through the shack Freshie ' s told confidentially — slapped on the back — " Don ' t give us no trouble! To-morrow you ' ll go And sign up with the annals of Rho Dammit Rho! " Spasm V All the brothers arise at a quarter of six. And stand watchfully by to prevent any tricks. The poor innocent victim is shoved in the door — ■ Signs up — " You ' ll be pledged at a little past four! " Spasm VI Then witness, O Muse, with dejection and shame The atrocities pulled in fair brotherhood ' s name! Freshie does foolish things entertainment to lend; Many bed-slats are broken o ' er posterior end. Spasm VII Our hero cuts grass and cleans roof gutter-spouts, Runs innumerable errands for innumerable louts; If at last he survives all the rites of the clan — Evolution evolves — a fraternity man!!!! • Page 184 •

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 •

Frantic Freshman Spasm I The poor freshman coeds meet similar fate When they light from their Packards to matriculate. For in secret bull sessions it ' s been planned for weeks What they must endure at the hands of the Greeks. Spasm II See each little Greekie with rushees in tow — Around and around, registrating they go. She stops to count noses each forty-two feet And sing praises of dear old Sig Upsilon sweet. Spasm III And then night after night and day after day Poor Rushee is rushed ' til she ' s tired of the fray — She rides in police wagons, shivers in courts. Hulas in grass skirts and slumbers in shorts. Spasm IV And she doesn ' t have time to make classes or eat. From the ceaseless barrage of the sisters who cheat. She ' s told that the Deltas are damnable drunks. Furthermore that the Sigmas are simpering skunks. Spasm V She ' s lectured with eloquence fit for the bar What the thousand advantages of Gamma are. The victim continually heaves a deep sigh And powders dark circles from under her eye. Spasm VI Fateful day now arrives — the enlistment begins — They go in wearing smiles and come out wearing pins. For her there is nothing considered too low — ' Til elections come ' round where she might have a show! Spasm VII So she thinks now of nothing but dances and dates. There is nothing in study she appreciates! Now this ends our sad ballad of poor little Sal Who left home and became — a sorority gal!!!! • Pag 185 •
