Quest for Knowledge 1. Miss Althar, Librarian, displays a pretty smile and a rare Audubon print, both available at the college library. 7. Students in the library try to make a good impres- sion by appearing thoughtful, but don ' t succeed in fooling anybody. Assistant Eatman and Prof. En- trikin make modern magic with the aid of numerous vials and their contents in the chemistry lab. The social science group visits a local bank to get first hand infor- mation on the intricacies of high finance. 3. These industrious young creatures seem to be very serious as they endeavor to sew a straight seam for the Home Economics teacher. 9. A commerce class in session — more high finance and more trou- ble for worried students. Students file into Chapel, where some small amount of knowl- edge is drummed into their un willing ears through the medium of the unfortunate speaker, who endeavors to hold and direct the attention of his audience. The historic meeting at which the Students ' Association was or- ganized, where everybody was excited over the plan for a new student Union building. Doyle dispenses knowledge on the sub- ject to students and faculty.

Centenary Night Schoo Centenary College Night School was organized in the fall of 1933 by Dr. I. Maizlish, who at that time was a professor of Physics on the regu- lar faculty, and a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technol- ogy and of the University of Minnesota. Thirty-five students enrolled for that first session, thereby laying the foundation for an institution which has become an integral part of Centenary and an important aid toward her future development. In 1935 the direction of the night school was taken over by C. R. McKnight, geologist, and under his able guidance the enrollment grew tremendously until it reached its present proportions of over 300 students for the 1937-38 term. The twenty-five courses offered are presided over by a capable faculty of twenty-one instructors, twelve of whom are prominent members of the regular college faculty. With such ex- cellent supervision and instruction, the night school will undoubtedly progress even beyond its present suc- cess; an after-dark counterpart to Centenary ' s daytime achievements in the scholastic world.

Leads Far and Wide 4. A corner of (he zoology lab, where students trace the wily amoeba or examine the in- ner mechanism of Brofher Rat. 10. The Math team receives final instructions from Dean Hardin, Dr. Earls, and Mr. Banks before giving its all for Alma Mater in the S. I. M. A. contest. 5. Headguarters for the Quest of Knowledge, the main office, which seethes with activity night and day ■ — well, almost. 11. Perhaps it ' s not knowledge these boys are seeking, but this is at least a practical way to get it. 6. The absorbed expressions on these faces are not entirely due to the presence of the photographer — it really is interesting to watch Don Brown take an etching off the press. 12. Malcolm Mason takes this business of dig- ging for knowledge seriously. 13. Doc Morehead gives directions to the band preparatory to a program as one of the managers looks on. If the four-year Quest for Knowledge is successful the cap, gown and diploma is the reward. Though to the casual observer it might not seem so, students do come to Centenary for other reasons than to play football, play in the band, or merely to play. The curriculum offers a varied number of excellent courses in every field, conducted by a faculty of which the college may justly be proud. The serious side of college life, so often neglected for the more colorful aspects of social activities, are depicted here, proving that, for the earnest seeker after knowledge, the doors of op- portunity are always open.
