Q e e Surrounded by Maroon Jackets with red cheeks, escorted by Maroon Shirts with red noses, flanked by ex-Centenary grid-heroes with growing paunches, kissed by " Doc. George " with great gusto, envied by all the female spectators with catty chatter, looking mighty nice with everything, Nell did herself and Zeta Tau Alpha mighty proud as well as m.aking an excellent and darned at- tractive Queen of the Homecoming to make the old-grads long for their long jxist days of youth and handsomeness.

Presenting the 1937 . . . . Homecoming Queen . . . Through a bedlam of election filth, through a hurricane of balloting, through an earthquake of poli- tics, through an avalanche of popularity came beautiful Annelle Hutchinson with royal grace to become Homecoming Queen of 1937. After coming through all this Queenly Nelly also went through the pomp, heat, and ceremony of the coronation with smiling, sweating, but unruffled dig- nity. On her white-washed dais of wood and tinseled throne of papier-mache she made a com- plete picture of what an ivory-bedecked, brunette-thatched, golden-crowned, pretty girl looks like when she is Queen and also Annelle Hutchinson. Past Queens Bai- ley and Overton serve as the guards at honor during the cere- mony . . . " Doc " George makes the crowning otiicial with his usual gusto . . . While " This is Jack Garrison speaking " announces proceedings to the world at large . . . Some queen, eh, what? . . . • Page 54 •

" Halt Pint " Fraser seems about ready tc pound out a salvo ol noise, ■whicli she ' ll optimistically label " music " — Giigsby swings along in front and others pound on behind — We had a hard time keeping the Maroon Shirts and Cheerleaders out oi this — Coker does things with a mighty hard expression while Hattaway and Ro- senblath lind time to applaud the game. Self-termed " Beautiful Belles " of the campus, the Maroon Jackets are twelve co-eds, representative of the sorority and non-sorority groups of the campus. Officially designated as " Centenary hostesses " the bereted, jacketed, ladies seemed omnipresent at every function of the college and student body. Apparently no fire-truck is the same without these young ladies draped over it, for they invariably clang down the parade street, precariously perched on one, clinging for dear life, and giving scared grins to the hoi-polloi. Of no mean mettle, also, was their newly introduced and partially learned drumming, for what they lacked in musical ability they made up with thundering gusto. Together with their shirted brethren they made the football trips loud, lusty, and louder. Mrs. a. R. Campbell, Sponsor Under the sponsorship oi Mrs. A. R. Campbell, Dean oi Women, this organization came into being several years ago, until now it is an established institution. Her work with this group has made it outstanding and no small part at the credit lor it is due to her. This represents only a portion ol the lim work Mrs. Campbell has done since she has been a member of the college faculty, and she is indeed worthy ot the sincere regard in which she is held by the students. fcSs. , • Page 56 •
