Thayer MEMBERS Warren Bourdier Billy Eatman Randolph Mayer Jack Pruitt Virginia Carlton Edgar Friedenberg William McKay Leo Simmons Robert Demint Gus Hoyer Jules Perot Annie Laurie Stallcup Ruth Watkins Alpha Sigma Chi was founded at Centenary in 1931. This organization is an honorary chemistry fraternity in which the membership consists of all students taking second year chemistry, provided they maintain a C plus average in all subjects and are voted on by the fraternity. Alpha Sigma Chi meets every two weeks in their attractive lounge in Jackson Hall. There one finds the walls decorated with pennants from various universities in the United States where there are alumni of the organiza- tion. One meeting each month involves a discussion of the technical points in connection with science. The other meeting is held primarily for the freshmen so that they may be encouraged in their interest in chemical subjects. The fraternity boasts of a library of its own from which material is available for the scientific book reviews presented every Friday. The organization emphasized two important projects this year. A pamphlet giving present location of all alumni and the positions they are now holding was sent to all the alumni of Alpha Sigma Chi. All doctors and laboratory technicians who are former students here were brought back for an informal meeting.

Campbell If you are a junior or a senior, and if you are so very, very smart that undergraduates look at you in awe and professors ask your opinion on difficult problems, then you may be considered for membership in the learned society of Alpha Chi. This small but select group corners the market as far as campus brains are concerned, and the fortunate few who receive bids to join this most honored of honorary fraternities are just about as scarce as Sweepstake winners. Incidentally, they ' re just about as lucky too, because the pres- tige attendent on this title is not to be attained by the average homo sapiens. The activities of the Alpha Chis consist chiefly in maintaining their extremely elevated standards, which requires most of their time and forethought. They do, however, by way of inspiration to some worthy individual, annually present a hand- somely bound and engraved notebook to the most outstanding freshman. Naturally this places a tremendous obligation on the aforementioned lowly Frosh because he is now faced with the task of living up to the honor awarded him and becoming in his turn, an Alpha Chi, in order not to disappoint those who have so honored him. However, for all their being the intelligentsia of the campus, the Alpha Chis are a modest lot, never assuming the holier-than-thou attitude to which their wisdom entitles them, and striving only to pro- mote scholarship and give those who deserve it their just reward.

Under the enthusiastic leadership of Mrs. A. R. Campbell the club has succeeded in stimulating interest in scholastic attainments among the lowerclassmen. It has kept as its purpose the duty of rewarding and recognizing the scholastic efforts of the first and second year students. Famed for its clever initiations, Alpha Sigma Pi takes in members three times during each school year. Among the other activities of the club is a program presented annually in the chapel at which time some distinguished speaker is invited to address the student body. This year Professor Gerard Banks, a former member of Alpha Sigma Pi and at present mathematics professor at Centenary, accepted the invitation to speak. He chose as his subject " The Possibilities of Science, " which he capably discussed. Alpha Sigma Pi is the goal of all ambitious freshmen and sophomores at Centenary, and the fact that it is reasonably difficult to achieve makes it all the more desirable to belong to this honorary fraternity, which plays the part of little brother to the more dignified senior organization of Alpha Chi.
