A SPONSOR Since the inauguration of the Sponsor Contest in 1932, every spring finds candidates from each of the social or- ganizations trying to outsell each other in an effort to gain the coveted title of Sponsor of the Yoncopin. This year competition was unusually keen as the Alpha Xis sought to win the cup for the third time and thus gain perpetual possession of it while the other sororities were eaually de- sirous of preventing this. Above: Contestants for Sponsorship of (he Yonco- pin this year were Helen Webb, Ethel Shropshire, Margaret Gillespie, and Ann Burnette of Zeta Tau Alpha; Marguerite Lockhart and her business managers Shirley Satlord and Wilda Bedingfield of Alpha Xi Delta and Olga Thibodeaux of Chi Omega Editor Grace Julian presents the loving cup to Sponsor Helen Webb while run- n e r - u p Mar- guerite Lockhart looks on.

QUEEN OF THE MAY FETE Traditional at Centenary is the ceremony devoted to the crowning of the Queen of the May Fete on the first day of the month which ushers in the placid blue skies and dreamy days of early summer. Each year a faculty committee selects four girls — one from each social organization and one from the non-fraternity group — and from this number the students select their Queen. This May, diminutive Catherine " Shorty " Loyd will reign, and from her throne, she and Maid of Honor Alline Boddie, surrounded by her court, will witness the celebration. The theme of the festivity this year will be Pan-Americanism and her royal highness will survey a typical South American fiesta, complete with market stalls, gauchos, senoritas, sombreros, guitars and even a bull fight. Presented annually by the W.A.A. as a climax to their athletic activity, the May Fete attempts to por- tray or interpret some major aspect of life in America through sports. Last year, when smiling Shirley Baird reigned as Queen, the fete traced the evolution of the dance in the United States, beginning with the Avar dance of the Indians and show ing the develop- ment from this primitive form to our modern ball room dancing. The square dances, Virginia Reels, and other forms of the light fantastic enjoyed by our ancestors were portrayed by the hundreds of girls who take a part in the May Day celebration. Bigger and better than ever are the plans for this year ' s ac- tivity when the May Court, composed of the Junior and Senior girls, escort Queen Catherine Loyd to her throne of honor and the Fete is on.
