musicians or stage hands, and probably both, but the above are the more shining lights. The crowning event of the season is the annual tour of adjacent states which spells fun for the cast and trouble for Centenary, for the boys and girls just can ' t help tak- ing the town by storm, both on and off stage. The last perform- ance, at Byrd High, shuts the lid on another season, successful as usual, due to Doc Morehead ' s di- rection. James Bain and Ted O ' Toole provide an interesting act for the show in the true Beigen-McCaithy manner, which means that Ted speaks with his master ' s voice instead of listening to it. The orchestra prepares to swing out just as the curtain rises on the opening number Dana and Doc talk things over during intermission, This knocked-out bunch look like they ' re bound for Pineville, but they ' re really just excited over (he tour, which is the biggest event of the Kollege Kapers year, and -which is right on the verge of starting, as soon as everybody gets in the bus.

Kollege Kapers As soon as the excitement of the band season is over, Kollege Kapers swings out to hold the spotlight for the rest of the year and makes quite a name for Centenary in the process, especially on the tours. The cast is composed of the best musicians from the band, the best comedians from the K. A. chapter, and the best vocalists, and dancers from the entire student body. This year we have the usual number of Kollege Kap- ers veterans, aspiring young freshmen and Economics majors in the show, and it all adds up to be about the best con- glomeration of artists ever seen in these parts. Familiar names in the show include those of Allen Prickett, who has estab- lished something of a record for per- formances given as well as in the num- ber of feminine heart flutterings caused by his crooning, Johnnie Vantrease, who has been promoted to star in the play, Sammie Peters and his magic clarinet, handsome Dana Dawson, and the one and only Parry Stewart. Wini Boles and Jo Beth Nelson alternate on the piano and xylophone, and " that lovely Ruth Richards " still sings senti- mental ballads to the delight of the audience. Newcomers this year are dancers Frances Goodson, Bette Heath, Mary Betty Mulkey, Doris Mulkey, and Marg- ery Schilling; vocalists Wilda Beding- field, Adelaide Boggs, and Roberta Mc- Mahon, whose beautiful voice adds a classical note to the show, and light- ning artist, Beverly Cooper. New, also, was the series of dinners and buffet suppers given for the cast after the show and charged up to expenses. Tommie Richardson, John Shuey, Hugh White, and Dorothy Kelly, star in the play and in various and sundry skits, while Skippy Bland does double duty as one of the band managers and as a cowboy crooner. Ruth Overcash, fa- mous on stage and screen, has made several appearances with the show, as has James Bain and that little dummy, Ted O ' Toole. There are many others in the crew of Kollege Kapers, either as

It owes its success, in part, to the nature of its projects, for actor ' s blood seems to stir the hearts of everyone, but mostly to the leadership of its guiding star, John Wray Young. Under his super- vision, the club has accomplished much and has even bigger and better plans for the future. Each meeting is enlivened by the presentation of a one-act play by several members of the club, and, at the end of the year, a three-act play will be given for the entertainment of the student body at large. Several members of this budding actor ' s association, especially President Doris Marshall, have scored hits in Little Theatre plays, and the club as a whole takes a great interest in them, attending rehearsals and studying John Wray Young ' s technique in casting and directing the play. The field of radio also beckons to these would-be Thespians and on one occasion recordings of their voices were made and various other tests given. Thus this bouncing baby of the Campus Club family proves that youth may precede age in accomplishments and activities even though it is far behind in years and experience; and for such a fine object lesson we congratulate its present success and hope for its continuance in the future.
