The Centenary Maroon Jackets . . . official hostesses for the college. THE MAROON JACKETS " Tramp, tramp, tramp, the girl ' s are marching! " is the theme song of the Maroon Jackets, and march they did, right up to the fore of the band and the campus this year. Organized and sponsored by Dean of Women Mrs. A. R. Campbell, this group took over its usual and unusual duties on the campus as the twelve hostesses of Centenary College with renewed interest immediately after the summer vacation. They served as guides for hordes of bewildered freshmen, helping them arrange schedules, conducting them to classes, and showing them the ropes in general. When the uproar of registration had somewhat subsided the girls took up their marching seriously and under the combined tutoring of drum experts, Adam West, John Van- trease, and John Morwood, they improved to such an extent that they were promoted to the front of the band and led it through many intricate formations during the season. In addition to accompanying the band on all football trips and all other occasions, the Maroon Jackets form an official welcoming group for all visitors to the college, and serve at every campus function, usually after preparing many hours before hand for the same function. Perhaps this sounds like too much work to the casual observer, but to wear a Maroon Jacket is one of the most coveted of campus honors. The girls are chosen from the Junior and Senior class, three girls from each campus organization, and are elected by the outgoing members on the basis of scholarship, ap- pearance, and personality. A new Maroon Jacket steps into her position with the realization that she is an of- ficial representative of Centenary College and that she must wear her jacket with the honor it so rightly deserves.

THE CENHOMEC CLUB Officers President Billie Cady Vice-President Martha O ' Neal Secretary-Treasurer Lurline Yeary The Cenhomec Club, as revealed by its name, is an organization for those students interested in such domestic affairs as cooking, sewing, home decoration, and other related subjects. Organized early in 1939, the club has Miss Lou Ware, instructor in Home Economics, as a sponsor and Billie Cady as Pres- ident. Eligible for membership are all girls interested in this course of study, provided their grades are satisfactory. Although this is the club ' s first year on the campus, it has already established its place in the family of honorary fraternities and departmental groups of the college. As yet, the organization is not affiliated with the National Home Economics Clubs, but this is the first step on next year ' s program for growth and development. At present the members are planning to send a delegate to the Louisiana State Confer- ence to be held this spring. Several definite contributions have been made by the Cenhomec members in the general line of campus improvement. They have inaugurated a campaign to add pleasure and cheerfulness to the weekly chapel meetings and thereby have undertaken the project of furnishing flowers on these and other occa- sions. Equally commendable is the general spirit of interest and ambition which marks the attitude of all the members, and assures a bright future for this newest of the college clubs.
