And Home Economics There is opportunity for every one in Cent- enary ' s athletic program, which provides for class, intramural, and competitive sports as well as intercollegiate activity. The exploits of the Gentlemen on the grid- iron, court, and diamond, and their feats in the squared circle are already recorded in the annals of Centenary ' s sport history. Less valuable perhaps to the prestige of the school, but just as important in the development of individual ability, is the work accomplished in the regular gym classes and in competitive sports. Every phase of athletics is taken up in the vari- ous classes, with wide diversification in the women ' s division; which might indi- cate that the fairer sex has a wider range of interests or merely that they are harder to please. In intramural sports, teams are entered for competition in football, basket- ball, boxing and softball, with a hand- some trophy as the award offered to the winners in each sport, and a cup for the organization which makes the greatest number of honor points in each division. Individual competition in tennis and other sports is also sponsored. Thus, inspired by the excellent equipment of the new gym, the athletic department at Centenary makes another year of progress toward physical perfection. The Home Economics Department, which trains the female of the species for home- making and the domestic acts just as the Physical Education Department trains its members in the more manly arts, has also increased its activities for this year. New courses have been added and a House- hold Arts Club has been organized, which has as its purpose " to supplement in part rather than duplicate the work done in class, and to promote personal growth and the spirit of competition. " The first major in the Home Economics Department will receive her degree in June, which in- dicates the advance in the activity of this particular section. The iairer sex tries its hand at ye olde English game of shuttle cock, better known as badminton. Within this case Centenarians may proudly view the relics oi tormer victories and the as yet un- awarded trophies of intramural sports. Curtis Parker, athletic director and head tootball coach, is largely responsible tor Centen- ary ' s achievements on the grid- iron in the past few years. Coach Parker also directs the basket- ball team, and is a member of the National Committee on Bas- ketball Rules. He is a graduate of the University of Arkansas.

Administration and Journalism Miss Page, Assistant Bursar, has served Centenary in this capac- ity lor the past three years. Her cheerful personality makes it a pleasure to be called to the of- fice, even it it is to be notified that another payment is due. Miss Avis Wilson, Registrar, has been with Centenary through the terms of three presidents and has become increasingly capable with each succeeding year, so that it is almost impos- sible to imagine the oltice con- tinuing without her. Lois Parrot, secretary in the Bursar ' s office, is a graduate of Centenary and since her gradua- tion last year has been a valued employee of the college. Miss Amanda Wilson, instructor in shorthand and typing, is a graduate of Messer Business Col- lege and a student of Louisiana Polytechnic Institute. She has been secretary to the President of Centenary for the past lour years. Dolph Frantz, instructor in Journalism, is a graduate of Mil- saps College. In connection with his position as Editor of the Shreveport Journal, Mr. Frantz is a past president of the Louisiana Press Association. The Registrar, the President ' s secretary and assistant, carry on the work of keeping the col- lege records in order. The administrative divi- sion of the college em- ploys a number of stu- dents as well as full time employees, and seeks to give the students a practi- cal knowledge of business which will be useful to them in future fields of business endeavor. The innumerable details inci- dent to the management of a college are carried out by this division of the college under the direction of Mr. Holland, Miss Page, and Miss Avis Wilson. Students of Commerce find this work especially valu- able since they carry on their work exactly as they would in the office of any business organization, and thereby gain much practi- cal experience. The Journalism Depart- ment is conducted in the same manner. Dolph Frantz, head of the Depart- ment, is, by virtue of his position as Editor of the Shreveport Journal, ex- ceedingly well-qualified to instruct prospective cub reporters in the intricacies of newspaper work.
