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.

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.

Departments The Social Science Departments made even greater advances in the field of hu- man welfare problems with the innova- tion of a new type of activity by means of which participation and observation in the various fields of the departments was made possible. For the first time the Economics, Com- merce and History Departments presented special laboratory studies of Shreveport business organizations. In connection with this program, upperclassmen majoring in these subjects who had a B average or better participated in a series of business studies conducted by Professors More- head, See, Davidson, and Overdyke. These special studies consisted of observ- ing business houses in operation. Banks, building and loan associations, stock brokerage, cotton brokerage and other businesses were investigated by the stu- dents, all of which cooperated enthus- iastically in the project. Many students made valuable contacts with prominent business men through these studies, as well as gaining first-hand information as to what makes the wheels of commerce go ' round. Although this is the first year such a program has been offered, it has proved a marked success and will be en- larged in scope and activity next year. A similar project was inaugurated in the Departments of Education and Psychology when Professor Odom organized and put in operation a laboratory for psychologi- cal research which bids fair to be an in- creasingly valuable aid in the study of advanced psychology for those interested in this work. Vocational, aptitude, and personality tests made under the super- vision of Professor Odom for student bene- fit are included in the studies made by those taking an active part in the labora- tory work. Courses in Philosophy and Ethics, con- ducted by Dr. A. M. Serex and President Cline, are increasingly in demand with the advanced students, as is nearly every phase of the enlarged and superior Social Science Departments. The Social Science classes learn about banking in the most practical way possible, by actually inspect- ing the inner mechanics of a local bank in operation. Many interesting psychological experiments are made in the Psychology Lab under the direction of Professor Odom. Dr. S. D. Morehead, head of the Department of Economics, is a member of various honorary so- cieties, among them Pi Kappa Delta, Pi Gamma Mu, and Alpha Sigma Kappa. His Ph. D., as well as his masters degree, was re- ceived from Columbia University. In addition to his teaching activ- ities, " Doc " Morehead is also di- rector of the band and Kollege Kapers.
