The Centenary Conglomerate With noble ambitions and high resolve the Conglomerate staff threw together [he first paper of the year. Apparently their aim was slightly crooked for they missed their mark by some pages of good copy. With little or less improve- ment they continued slinging paragraphs onto paper until just before mid-term. It was then that indignation about the boresomeness of Chapel reached its height. Donning armor the paper launched a popularly supported crusade against this maroon-striped dragon of misplaced oratory. After a brief and surprisingly effective controversy, success crowned the efforts of the by-now proud-chested staff. Its good-deed-for-the-year disposed of, the paper once more sank back into a stolid stupor and could not be aroused again until April Fool ' s Day — a peculiarly appropriate day for their awakening. With the traditional " hey nonny nonny and a hot cha cha " " Blondie " Carstarphen, " Blubber " Garrison, and " Biddy " Tiffin combined their respective brain to toss a green-inked offering of " humor " into the gaping mouths of the student body. With these two exceptions the Conglomerate has managed to pass a customary year of idleness and ignorant bliss.

Alpha Sigma Pi Organizdtions M. , OST fruitful crop of the year is that of non-social organizations. At most any time of the term one can spy at least a dozen or so bursting into bloom and print. They almost invariably get their names in the paper, elect officers, meet once or twice, and disappear into thin air. Such has been the fate of countless hundreds which have vanished without even leaving a scent. However, those that do survive go on from year to year fostering interest and work in certain lines. It is this substantial group which can afford to be represented in the yearbook and which we present on the following pages. • Page 60

' ipi ' l 1 Entrikin and Stagg Sigh With Relief Alter A Hectic Job The Yo n c o p i n Just before the few remaining grains of sand in last year ' s hour glass slithered down to end the school term of 1935-1936, the Editor and Business Manager of the Yoncopin were selected by the faculty com- mittee. Bearing up remarkably well under the new dignity imposed by their impressive titles, Paul Entrikin and Philip Stagg took over the hazardous task of publishing an annual for the coming year. All through the summer they were beseiged with folders, portfolios, letters, return postage postcards, and pamphlets extending hearty congratulations (condolences would have been more appropriate) and ask- ing if the Such-and-Which Printing Company might not be of service to them in the coming endeavor. After considerable dickering with various firms, and after volumes of literature had been exchanged, the Editors decided not to give their contract to any of them, but to entrust their precious volume to a local company instead. Came September, and the warning notice to " Have Your Picture Made Now! " began to blossom on the bulletin boards. The weekly deadlines were issued and postponed with increasing regularity, until finally the staff got tired of drawing posters and decided that they ' d really stick to it this time, with the result that about half the students hadn ' t had their pictures taken and began a mad rush to the studios for fear their handsome features might not grace the Yoncopin. Around January the cover was finally selected, after considerable bickering on all sides, and the staff relaxed into a pleasant coma. The winds of March brought faint murmurs to the ears of Ye Ed., who emerged from his hibernation period to listen — it was the printer asking for copy. Suddenly the realiza- tion slapped the co-workers on the yearbook full in the face that they had an annual to issue. What were they going to do about it? The pictures were the only thing ready — not a line had been written, and apparently there were no prospects of any being written. All the news that should have been typed and filed away after each im- portant event of the year, simply wasn ' t. All the bright ideas, weren ' t. And, apparently, the copy never was going to be. With the Yoncopin on its hands the staff had quite enough to do, without the additional worries of the sponsor contest, the trophy, and the football booklet — but s omehow they managed to survive them all. By thought (witness the chewed pencils, crumpled paper, cigarette stubbs, etc., which cluttered the office floor) the book was finally issued, and the staff retired to a quiet country estate to recuperate. After reading their feeble attempts at a light and airy style, the student body will probably need the same treatment, but anyway, we do have a Yoncopin.
