Alpha lota Chapter Founded December 21, 1865, at Washington and Lee University, Kappa Alpha ' s growth has steadily con- tinued, until today the Iraternity has 69 active chap- ters with an approximate membership of 25,500. Alpha Iota chapter is decidedly the oldest fratern- ity at Centenary, having been established in 1891 at the old college in Jackson, Louisiana. Its char- ter was withdrawn in 1903, on the removal of the college to Shreveport, was revived in 1909, with- drawn in 1913, and revived in 1922. Today it is one of the outstanding organizations on the cam- pus, its members entering into every phase of college life. Its Shreveport alumni chapter lists in its roll book such prominent names as Henry O ' Neal, presi- dent of the Chamber of Commerce; Ed Solomon, president of Dodd College; Dolph Frantz, editor of the Journal, and Chris Barnette, attorney. Honors received by the fraternity itself include two silver trophies — one presented for having the best intra-mural football team and the other for decorating most attractively for Homecoming in competition with the other frats. Campus leaders worthy of special recognition are Tom Richardson, vice-president of the Student Body, most versatile boy, tennis team, and comed- ian with Kollege Kapers; Dana Dawson, most handsome boy, leader of the Kollege Kapers or- chestra, Centenary band; Sam Peters, celebrated for his comic acts in the college show and for his brilliant clarinet playing; and Parry " Dougall " Stewart for his celebrated " HOT " trumpet which gained him an offer for a screen test in Hollywood. 1 . Fred and Mary sit this one out. A group of K. A. lads and ladies caught between classes. Rosenblath and some admirers — pledge Charles Peters, in particular, seems very admiring. That handsome Dana Dawson again. Some ot the fine K. A. ' s and their babes having a -wonder- ful time on the California trip.

PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL OFFICERS President Shirley Baird Vice-President Virginia Doyle Secretary-Treasurer Cornelia Row CHI OMEGA Alta Moorman Edna Earle Richardson Virginia Doyle MEMBERS ZETA TAU ALPHA Louise Lynn Wilcox Shirley Baird Marjorie Lemoine ALPHA XI DELTA Cornelia Row Marguerite Lockhart Catherine Loyd The Pan-Hellenic Council celebrates its tenth year on the campus as the most important factor in establish- ing a close harmony between rival Greek factions and in straightening out any troubles arising from this rivalry. It accomplishes its purpose in a subtle way, for the monthly meetings are not so much courts of arbitration as social gatherings which bring the various groups into such close contact that a friendly feel- ing cannot help but exist. The council is composed of three girls from each of the three sororities, which must, by the way, be chartered nationally and must be members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council. This national organization provides the constitution by which the local chapters operate. Because of the harmonious spirit already existing among the femmes in regard to fraternity matters, the council has little to do but keep this friendly feeling aglow in the hearts of all dear sisters and regulate the many activities in regard to rushing, pledging and various and sundry other things. True, the Pan-Hellenic Council has its little lapses, usually around election or contest time, when no amount of goodwill can keep the Greeks from the time honored practices of throat-cutting, slander, and battery and assault. However, such occasions are almost as rare as the proverbial day in June of which the poets sing, and are just as inevitable, so all credit must be given to the council for its excellent work in the past and hopes for a future equally as brilliant.
