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.
