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.

Language Departments The purpose of the English and Modern Language Departments is to stimulate in- tellectual development through a knowl- edge of the best of the literature of the past and present. This is accomplished not only in the classroom but through the activities in which the various clubs of these departments participate. Spanish and French films have been pre- sented by El Club Espanol and Le Cercle Francais, and the latter organization has contributed some fifteen books to the li- brary. Membership in these clubs is limited in number by scholarship require- ments, thereby setting higher standards for the rest of the classes. As an incen- tive to further interest in French, Le Cercle Francais also awards a Prix Litteraire to the most outstanding French student at Byrd High. Joint meetings of the three divisions of this department, in addition to the indi- vidual monthly meetings, provide the op- portunity for the discussion of subjects of mutual interest and benefit. Every instructor in this department is a conspicious member of the faculty as well. Dr. Ford has recently gained addi- tional prestige by his lectures on Carl Sandburg, sponsored by the Shreveport Poetry Club and by his proposed publica- tion of Jean Rotrou ' s " Laure Persecute, " while the ever increasing number of Eng- lish majors attests the already established excellence of Dr. Steger, Dr. French and Mrs. Campbell in their field. Through this wide diversification of inter- ests and active participation in group pro- jects, these departments invariably send forth students whose intellectual horizons have been so extended, whose minds have been so disciplined by four years of cultural knowledge that they become dynamic personalities in their environ- ment and leaders of their fellow citizens. Bishop Dobbs and Librarian Lucile Althar inspect a rare volume irom the college library — a 208 year old commentary on the Scriptures. Under the supervision of Dr. Ford, Le Cercle Fran- caise rehearses lor a French play to be presented by the department. Dr. S. A. Steger, head of the Eng- lish Department, held this same position at Hollins College and at Concord State College, West Vir- ginia, before coming to Centenary. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and has received many degrees, obtaining his A. M. at Bandolph- Macon College, his A. M. in Edu- cation at Columbia, his Masters at the University of Virginia, and his Ph. D. at the University of Virginia.
