of the 1938 Yoncopin With the first few balmy days of Spring, a number of students begin to wander around with that hazy look in their eyes, stumbling over their shoestrings and mumbling to themselves. Not all of them, however, are vic- tims of the love-bug. A small percentage are the unfortunate members of the Yoncopin staff, who have just been rudely awakened by the fact that the deadline for copy is only a few weeks off and that not a line has been written yet. Accordingly, a nightmare of feverish activity begins. Classes, meals, and even the all important dates are forgotten in the race with time and the printer. Students who won ' t have their pictures made, professors who decline to give necessary information concerning themselves for the faculty page, copy that gets lost and is found too late, all arouses the ire and add to the troubles of the hapless staff. In- variably, just at the time when the turmoil is at the peak, the Sponsor Contest lifts up its ugly little head and squalls for attention. Candidates come clamoring into the office night and day, making even a bigger mess of things, if possible, and students begin to demand " When ' s the yearbook coming out? " Eventually, we know not how, all the copy is turned in and off it goes to the printer. The staff breathes a sigh of relief, fondly imagining that their troubles are over — they do not pause to consider that printers are only human too, and that many a mistake must be corrected and every word be proof-read before returned for final — we hope — printing. You would think, after all this, that the staff would be entitled to a little praise for all its efforts — but no. Instead of appreciation and encouragement, insults and abuse are received. Angry students demand full public apologies because their names were misspelled, faculty members reprimand the mistreatment of their dignity and campus organizations threaten the life of Ye Editor for putting their picture on the wrong page. The staff throws up its hands and vows " never again " and means it. However, there must be a certain fascina- tion to this business of working on the Yoncopin, for every year they come back. It couldn ' t be the pay or the glory, because you don ' t get any, so it must be that, in retrospect, the staff members decide that it really is a lot of fun after all.

Staff The staff enjoys the pause that refreshes for the benefit of the photographer. The moral of this picture is " look what working on the Yoncopin does to you. " Editor Albert Farnell, with the custom- ary cigar, is the man responsible for this year ' s Yoncopin. The staff pretends to concentrate while they pose for their pictures. The staff, supposedly at work again, but don ' t let them fool you — the office is never in such a state of calm and order. A picture within a picture — Fred Or- man, staff photographer, is beaten at his own game.

. ' Waylan Pearce and Andy Beny look with pleasure through the latest edition. The stati rushes to make the deadline on a special edition. The Centenary With the firm determination that this year should bring about something new in journalistic endeavor as far as the Conglomerate, Centenary ' s weekly newspaper, was concerned, Editor Virginia Carlton and her staff started the presses rolling a week before school in order to greet the student body on registration day with an eight page edition. With such a noble precedent to follow, the staff continued its good work, putting out other double size issues, such as the Homecoming and Graduation numbers, and one sensational extra, which almost scared the students out of their customary stupor with its banner headlines and big black type. For several days pos- ters bearing the Conglomerate mottos, " Grow or Go " and " The Next 113 Years? " flourished about the campus and the Student Union Building Campaign was on. After successfully starting this drive for progress, the paper next turned to the development of certain features which had long been neglected. The Sports sec- tion, for instance, came into its own, thriving under the influence of Andy Berry, who introduced a more personal note into the former cut and dried sports accounts. A special weekly interview from Coach Parker furnished interesting sidelights on the football team and its prospects. A student forum column was intro- duced and actually used by all those desirous of expressing their private opinion publicly, which resulted in many heated controversies through the medium of print. The dirt columns were perhaps the only thing to lose in popularity, as the new policy extracted most of the " dirt " from campus gossip and introduced in its stead more light satire, which was too far above the heads of most of the students to be fully appreciated. However, the efforts of the staff as a whole were greatly appreciated, and the Conglomerate continued to successfully fulfill its duties as the official news organ of the college and made even greater strides forward, spurred on by the keyword of the year — Progress.
