PI MU SIGMA Pi Mu Sigma, the pre-medical fraternity, was organized on the campus in 1925 by a group of students who were interested in coming together to discuss the observations and problems attendent upon their various courses and to help explain some of the difficulties involved therein. Since then it has served a very definite purpose in helping to keep alive the interest of young medical students in the often irksome years of prep- aration which precede actual practice. Under the sponsorship of Miss Mary Warters, assistant professor of biology, the society has flourished and owes much of its success to her efforts on its behalf. The chief activity of the group this year was the first annual premedical reunion, held jointly by Alpha Sigma Chi, the chemistry fraternity, and Pi Mu Sigma early in March. The reunion brought to public notice the fact that many of the state ' s most prominent young doctors and graduate students who are leading their classes in other schools are former members of this fraternity. To belong to Pi Mu Sigma is quite definitely an honor, for certain difficult standards must be met, and then the candidate must pass the even more exacting chapter vote. At present, the organization is composed exclusively of males, for no girl has yet succeeded in winning the approval of the domineering stronger sex this year, and there is no indication that any will succeed in battering down their resistance. Thus, Pi Mu Sigma achieves the double honor of being a distinguished pre-medical fraternity and a last stronghold for the boys as well. OFFICERS President . . Arthur Addison Vice-President .

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.

L. Odom. The object of the organization is to further the interest in informal discussions on Psychological subjects. Meetings are held at the homes of different members with eminent psychologists as guest speakers. Among the interesting programs this year was a talk on " Psychology As Applied in Medicine, " presented by Dr. Ruffin A. Paine. Other discussions were " Brain Injuries, " presented by Miss Mary Warters, " Psychology of Magic, " presented by Dr. R. B. DeLee, and " Child Psychiatry, " by Dr. George Wolfe. One of the outstanding performances of the year was " Among the Spirits, " an illustrated demonstrated lec- ture showing how mediums enable " Spirits " to return to deliver personal messages to their living friends. The first part was a composite seance made up of the best features of leading mediums, in which were demonstrated spirit forces, spirit vision, writing by an invisible hand, spirit slate writing, and the material- ization of a spirit while the medium was securely bound by members of the audience. Part two dealt with the expose. Dean Higgins, noted Psychologist from Emerson College, Boston, explained the methods of mediums and fortune tellers. Pictures, demonstrations of alleged psychic phenomen, speech and music were blended in an expose that was dramatic and thrilling.
