The Local Cha pter Lambda Theta Chi was established as a local fraternity on the Centenary campus October 26, 1927, and has remained classified in that category. Its members have long been interested in the publication and debating angles of campus life and many prominent editors of the school paper and annual have worn the gold and brown. SR3J 4 Included in this group are Leon Adams, Paul Entrikin, who last year won a fellowship to the University of Wisconsin, John Carstarphen, schol- arship student in the Tulane Law School, and Hugh Stephens, one of the six highest ranking students in law at the State University. Tom W. Bridges and Prof. Robert S. See have sponsored this fraternity for a number of years with Mrs. Martha Crump serving as hostess. Possibly the most noteworthy achievement of the Lambdas this year has been their scholastic standing on the campus, having the highest average of the men ' s groups for the Fall semester. In addition to this they sponsored for many months a College Night in the supper room of one of Shreveport ' s largest hotels. Lambda ' s campus leaders include Bill Harris, president of the Senior Class, having held this office in the class of 1938 for four consecutive years; Billy Eatman, chemistry assistant and member of the debate team; J. B. Hamlett, history assistant and member of the debate team; Leo Simmons, Math assistant and member of the Centenary Mathematics team. 1. Portrait of a dignitied senior. 2.

Beta lota Chapter Zeta Tau Alpha was founded October 15, 1898, at Vir- ginia State Normal School, Farmville, Virginia. Today the sorority has 70 active chapters with an approxi- mate membership of 10,000. A scholarship loan fund, established in 1912, is maintained from which money is loaned for educational purposes. In 1928 the Zeta Tau Alpha health center was built in Currin Valley near Marion, Virginia, in honor of the founders and the mother state. Beta Iota chapter was the first sorority established on the Centenary College campus, May 6, 1927. This past year its main objective has been to establish a new lodge, in place of the old one and much work has been done along these lines. Their Mothers ' Club and alumnae organization have been particularly helpful. With Mrs. A. M. Shaw as hostess, the Zetas count among their more prominent alumnae Mrs. George S. Sexton, Mrs. Leroy Morwood, and Miss Margaret Jane Taylor, a Northwestern University beauty. Outstanding wearers of the steel grey and blue at Centenary are Shirley Baird, coed vice-presi- dent of the Student Body, president of Pan-Hel- lenic, and vice-president of the Senior Class; Doris Marshall, Miss Centenary of 1937, secretary of the Junior Class and president of the Dramatic Club; Jo Beth Nelson, Band Sweetheart and fea- tured artist; Helen Finke, beauty and president of the Maroon Jackets; and Betty Heath, secretary- treasurer of the Freshman Class. 1.
