Homecoming Celebratio n The band, followed by a line of cars, begins the parade in anticipation of the great game. With reporters, cameras, and microphones, on all sides, the stage is set lor the entrance of the Queen. Alpha Xi Delta welcome still looms large on the horizon. A corner of the banguet hall be- fore the descent of Homecoming guests, who brought appetites egual to their enthusiasm. These sturdy Gents spelled out a welcome for old grads.

Ce n te n a ry ' s Dr. George Quinn, now deceased, Margaret Hope, and Bernie Howard, Centenary cheerleaders in the good old days, returned to celebrate Homecoming and prove they still had the old technique. The high spot of the year was the traditional Homecoming on November 20, v hen past and present met to pay due homage to their Alma Mater. For weeks in advance plans were made and invitations issued to all old grads, while the campus was in an uproar over the election of the Homecoming Queen. Once under way, the procession of events moved on with an atmosphere of mounting excitement until the climax — the game itself. The pre- liminaries — radio speeches, banquets, parades, open houses, bonfires, pep meetings, and the like — were only a build up for the game and the crowning of the Queen. Even the defeat this year at the hands of the Texas Tech Raiders did not put a damper on the spirits of the happy Homecomers. The only sad note in the whole occasion was the absence of our beloved " Doc George " who was not here to bestow the crown and his customary kiss on Jessie Mae Sexton, the Queen. However, President Cline success- fully took over his duties in order that the traditional ceremony might be preserved and handed on to future generations as it has been in the past. A little lumber, a little sacking, a little ingenuity, and a great deal of labor made the Chi Omega house look enough like a football to win the cup for the best decorated sorority house in the annual contest at Homecoming. Football heroes of former days return to swap tales of victory and defeat, but mostly victory, as they compare teams of the glorious past with those of the not-so-glorious present.

dvso A £ 3 neS .;l ' s " asW e ainS ?= worv bet all ar e V- plaY Q The Popularity Contest at Centenary this year was unusually successful, for all the students elected are really tops in more ways than one — for example: Tommy Richardson who in addition to piloting the K. A. ' s and the Inter-frat Council through a most successful season, starred in Kollege Kapers and ranked number one on the tennis team. Virginia Doyle proved her versatility by excellent performances on stage and radio, work on both publications, and as president of the Chi Omegas. Dana caused many feminine hearts to flutter, both at home and abroad, as Kollege Kapers master of ceremonies, while Grayce Ellen confined herself to simply being cute. Lockhart led the Gent ' s supporters all season, and now leads the campus in popu- larity, and the Alpha Xi ' s in meetings. Al, whose ability on the gridiron and court deserves extra special mention, proved his popularity as president of the Student Body. Weenie and Mary Agnes led in athletic prowess, as the sports pages can show, and won the admiration of the entire student body by their skill. All in all — a fine lot of superlative students — the " most " of the best.
