m JrresenUnq the Executive Vice-President of the College A new addition to the administrative staff of the college has been made this year in the person of C. O. Holland, who has assumed the duties of Executive Vice-President of Centenary. With his former experience as Presi- dent of the People ' s Bank and Trust Company of Minden to guide him, Mr. Holland has mapped out a financial campaign to insure the future develop- ment of the college. Plans for the construction of new buildings, the remodel- ing of present structures, and the improvement of the campus as a whole have been made. He also is responsible for the successful drive to remove all in- debtedness of the college. As state Lay Leader of the Methodist Church, he has held a unique position offering distinct opportunity for service, to both the church and the college. His ability, his progressive ideas and the will to carry them out, and his wholehearted cooperation and sincerity, have won a high respect for this new executive on the campus; while his own personality has even further endeared him to the students who are doubly appreciative of the two-fold gift his coming brought — a new leader and a new friend.

an d s ciences The Mathematics Department offers practical as well as the- oretical courses in Mathematics. The Math team coached by members of Math faculty has won high honors in the S. I. M. A. competition. It is the aim of the science de- partments to inculcate in all stu- dents an appreciation of the place of science in modern life, and at the same time to provide their major students with a sound pre-professional and vo- cational training. Both of these objectives are served by a broadly trained faculty alert to the inter-relationships of the several sciences to industry and the professions. These relationships are brought to the attention of students by emphasis in class discussion, by inspection trips to the plants of local chemical industries, by enlisting the aid of students in the preparation of industrial ex- hibits, and by faculty-sponsor- ed clubs and discussion groups. Advanced students are also urged to aid in finding answers to the numerous questions, which are asked of the science staff by citizens of the commun- ity. These problems acquaint students with the practical prob- lems of industry, and introduce them to scientific literature and methods of research. The success of this training is attested by the 25 per cent of re- cent graduates now working to- wards advanced degrees and by the equal number in pro- fessional schools, and by the high proportion of the remain- der who are employed. Dr. Entiikin and Assistant Billy Eatman instruct the freshman chemistry students. Assistants Arthur Addison and Margaret Calhoun conduct the Biology Lab. Dr. John B. Entrikin, head of the Chemistry Depart- ment, -who holds A. B., M. A., and Ph. D. degrees from Iowa University, is a past president of the Louis- iana Academy of Science. Dr. Lewis A. Thayer, act- ing head of the Depart- ment of Biology, received his B. S., M. S. and Ph. D. degrees from Washington State and Stanford. William Gerard Banks, Dr. Lester T. Earls, act- instructor in Mathematics, received his A. B. degree from Centenary and his M. A. degree from the University of Virginia. ing head of the Physics and Geology Department, received his A. B., M. S. and Ph. D. degrees from the University of Michigan. Miss Mary Warters, as- sociate Professor of Biol- ogy, received her A. B. degree at Shorter College, and her M. A. at Ohio State.
