Three modern Dianas take caietul aim at a distant target. They don ' t miss either — Jooic at those bull ' s-eyes. This looks dangerous, but it ' s really lots of tun. AT PLAY program, presented on the college green, served to give a bird ' s-eye view of the year ' s activity. After school was officially over last year, a group of the more hardy souls accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Davidson on a camping trip up into the Ouachita Mountains in Arkansas. There they spent several days of living in the open, cooking over smoky fires and wading in mountain creeks, and several nights of sleeping on pine needles and fighting off small, per- sistent insects. Of course it is understood that they all had a marvelous time, because the greater the incon- venience, the dearer is the trip to the true camper ' s heart. An overnight trip to Camp Margaret Hutchinson was held at the beginning of this year and others have been planned for the future. More camp scenes — Roughing it has some disad- vantages, in this case it seems to be a rock in the shoe. Washing your face in a sparkling brook is lots ot tun if you don ' t fall in.

Judging Comfort is the order of the day on the summer camping trip in the Ouachita Mountains. THE W. A. A Several years ago, the girls at Centenary decided that the boys were having entirely too much fun monopolizing all the sports activities of the campus and that something should be done about it. Accordingly, in the year 1924-25, a chapter of the national W. A. A. was organized and, under the direction of Mrs. Davidson, has been growing rapidly ever since. The W. A. A. knows no season, for it offers such infinite variety in the world of sports that anyone at any time is able to find something that she can participate in. The culminating achievement of last year was the May Fete, over which Ern- estine McCain reigned as Queen, for it represented all the activities of the year, and they were legion. Volley ball, basketball, softball, tennis, badminton, ping pong, rifling, riding, fencing, and many others were all demonstrated by the groups most proficient in that particular field.

ACTIVITIES AND The first activity of the fall season was the annual volley ball tournament between the various classes, wherein sophomores battled freshmen for supremacy and were in turn battled by upperclassmen. In class work, the girls were introduced to the manly sport of handball and showed so much interest that the boys began to complain of never being able to use the courts. A shuffle board court was marked off and a deck tennis set procured, which added two new sports to the roster of those already popular at Centenary. Frequent skating parties were given to raise money for the Student Union, which the W. A. A. most ardently supported. Other social affairs, such as swimming parties, a horseback riding jaunt, and a barbecue claimed the members ' attention. As Spring came on, it found the organization with more activities up its sleeve. A basketball tournament was soon underway and the gentler sex proved just how gentle it is when aroused by the mounting casualty list after each game. A tennis team was organized, the ranking of the players being decided by a tourna- ment. Matches with other colleges were secured. Banned from the gym ' s ping pong room by the C Club, the girls promptly devised a table of their own and installed it in their new quarters in the old gym. There a little paint, a great deal of sweeping, scrubbing, and lots of work had transformed an old locker room into a handsome private office for the organization.
