PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL Officers President Edna Earle Richardson Vice-President Marguerite Lockhart Secretary-Treasurer Martha Shepherd The Pan-Hellenic Council proved to have a sturdier soul than many had suspected and thereby sur- vived a year of the most hectic rushing that Centenary has seen in many a day. This cut throat com- petition was due in part to the unusually attractive Freshmen girls and also to the foresightedness of the various sororities who evidently realized that the political situation being what it is, a large pledge group would be a distinct advantage in various elections. At any rate, the council started the fracas at the begin- ning of the year with the annual Pan Hellenic Tea, which all the freshmen attend en-masse and un- escorted by members of any organization. Here they were acquainted with the rules governing rush- ing and the penalties for violations thereof. From this point on it was every sorority for itself and heaven help the poor rushees. Pan-Hellenic also determines the length of rush week, the conditions of pledging, the number of parties each group may have, and assigns dates for these functions. This year the Council has done admir- ably in preserving a remnant of dignity for itself and the various organizations, and in eliminating the tedious and difficult business of summer rushing, a decided improvement over the campaigning of former years. For these and for its other achievements in uniting the sister groups with a more sisterly feeling, much credit is due to this board of the three leading officers of each sorority. Never, since its inception in 1928, has the council had such an active season and never has it performed its duties so effectively, which seems to predict an even better season next year for these mediators of the Greek letter groups. The Pan-Hellenic Council dresses up in its best bib and tucker for a festive occasion. i Members ZETA TAU ALPHA Martha Shepherd June Austermell Nancy Bloomer ALPHA XI DELTA Marguerite Lockhart Dorris Snell Martha O ' Neal CHI OMEGA Edna Earle Richardson Alta Moorman Dorothy Stevenson

Officers President Lloyd DeMoss Secretary-Treasurer Carlton Graff The Inter-fraternity Council wended its pleasant way onward as usual this year, with little difficulty other than that involved in assembling all the members to have their picture made. The third time proved a charm, however, and even this was finally accomplished. The organization, composed of the Presidents and Vice-Presidents of the four campus fraternities, has as its purpose the preserving of peace and harmony among the Greeks, and performed its function admirably this year, though this is perhaps due more to the non-combatant attitude of the frats than to any great effort on the part of the Council. President Lloyd DeMoss, however, was determined that the group should not remain inactive merely because they had no arbitrating to do, so two innovations in policy were proposed, accepted and carried out. One of these was the much applauded plan of deferred rushing, which eliminated a major headache for the fraternities by allowing them to carry out their rushing campaign in a sane and sensible manner instead of the usual pell-mell fashion. As soon as this was successfully com- pleted, the group turned to the long contemplated Inter-fraternity dance. Under the influence of the Council the various groups finally settled as to a date and a mid-April night saw what once would have been an impossibility — the Greeks enjoying themselves at an exclusive all-Greek function. Credit for the revival of the Maroon Shirt Organization also goes to this group, whose unprecedented activity this year on behalf of the brotherhood of Greeks has been both praisworthy and noteworthy.

ALPHA IOTA CHAPTER OF The Kappa Alphas came through again this year and planted the crimson and gold banner at the top of the heap in practically every field they entered. To begin with, they pledged the largest group of any of the social organizations — twice as many as any other fraternity. In the first election of the year they snatched up most of the offices by a landslide majority. As usual the " boys across the street " dominated the band and Kollege Kapers; also as usual they won the intra-mural football championship. Add to this two cheerleaders, four winners in the Popularity Contest, three Mathematics team members, two from " Who ' s Who, " two Yoncopin managers, two student assistants, presidents of various honorary organizations, and several Student Senate members, and you begin to realize what an active part the Kappa Alpha ' s took in campus affairs this year. With all this, the brothers still had time to hold a State Convention here and threw some extra-swell affairs for their visitors. Number One Kappa Alpha is Sammie Peters, for four years a member of Kapers and the Band, co-business manager of the Yoncopin, commerce assist- ant, a member of the Student Senate, the Inter-Fraternity Council, and " Who ' s Who, " and chosen by his fellow students as the Centenary Gentleman. " Rocks " Rawlinson is also a member of " Who ' s Who, " the president of the Student Body, Student Senate, and Senior Class, a football star, president of " C " Club, and last, but definitely not least, the possessor of a comprehensive 90. Perry Stewart, Corresponding Secretary for the chapter, is another veteran of Kapers and the band, a cheerleader and Centenary ' s Most Popular Boy. Equally well liked is Mai Mcllwain, who is master of ceremonies for the col- lege show, President of the K. A. pledges and a cheerleader, and was recently elected the Most Charming Boy. Bill Steger, Sophomore Class President and Most Versatile Boy, is another prominent K. A.
