Mrs. Bryant Davidson, director of Women ' s Athletics at Centenary, is largely responsible for the excellent sports programs. 1. Ernestine McCain, last year ' s May Queen, smiles from her throne. 2.

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.

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.

A. began to plan for Stunt Night. Many novel skits were presented, but the Lambda ' s won the loving cup for their original one act play, on how " The Army Met Its Waterloo, " which bore a striking re- semblance to a certain campus triangle, though the audience was assured that none was intended. Turning to more serious matters as the Yoncopin goes to press, plans are being made for the annual banquet, at which letters will be awarded, and for the May Fete. This year the Queen will be Shirley Baird, a Zeta, who was elected by the student vote from four candidates submitted by the faculty. The theme will be American History as interpreted by folk dances — all the way from the Indian War Dance to the Big Apple. Truly, this has been a year of progress and achievement for the W. A. A. • " » Miss Shirley Baird, May Queen of 1938.
